" Of the prefent Work, the execution has not only suffered but exceeded our expectation. In this con- cife, and at the fame time comprehenfive, View of the whole Hiftory, the Reader will find the great Outlines of the Portrait delineated by the Pencil of a ( kilful Artift. The Author's Materials are well feleCted, and well ar- ranged ; his Obfervations and Remuills aie ingenious, and difcovet a Knowledge of Hum in Nature; and his Language is generally correCt and animated. We confi- dcr it in particu'ar as excellently Calcul ited to be put into the hands of Young People, and we think it might be introduced wish great benefit into the higher CltilfeS of the numerous Schoo's throughout the Kingdom, in very many of which Hiftory now properly coiiltitutes ah important part of Education. But we do not mean to fay, that it is a mere School Book: it is capable of an- fwering a much higher purpofe ; and will be found < mi- nently fcrviceable to Perfons of every age and defcrip- tion."

" Before the appearance ot this Publication a confi- derablc link was wanting to gene fat'Headers, and espe- cially to Voting Perfons, in the great Chain of Hiflory ; the Puhlic arc therelore certainly obliged to the ano- nymous Author of th s ProduCtioii; and it is bit Juftice to avid, that it is wrtt- n wilh Spiritan. i Elegance.

NATIONAL ASSEMBLY. THURSDAY, Oa. z\. The remainder of yefterday's motion, which concerns the infurreftion at Breft, came into deliberation. '{ M. Menou, though the Reporter of the Com- mittee who had propofed a cenfure on the Muni- cipal Officers of Breft, prevailed to have the motion withdrawn—" Ah !" faid he, " if we are fevere againft that Municipality, what will re- main to us in this country to ftand up in de- fence of liberty ?-— Yefterday's decree has per- haps raifed the Minifters into audacious Ty- rants !" The firft part of the decree was confined to tlie fending two Commiffaries in' addition to thofe already named by the King, and who, in concert with the commandant of the port, and the commander general of the naval forces, are to be inverted with full power to re- eftablifh order in the port and road of Breft, and to em- power the commander of the Squadron to diS- mifs from the fervice a number of lancllrnen, who, it feems, had entered themfelves on board many of the fhips. The laft article of the decree, which purpofcd changing the old flag for the new National co- lours, as they are called, the emblem ef the Re- volution, was long contefted. It was argued, jhe folly of changing the old flag, rcSpeCted by 8II the military as the fignal of victory, and whole ^ prejudices would be wounded by fuch a meafure. The change was, however, adopted, and with this addition— That the failors fhould, every morning and evening, by way of difcipline, re- peat the words Vi- ve la Nati n, la Lei, W le Roi, inftead of t'ive le Roi, which ufed to be their » falute. This laft addition was carried at the motion of Monf. Mirabeau, who, in the courfe of the debate, was branded with the epithet of villain aiid affaffin, by a Monf. Guillerme ; this latter v. as immediately ai relied, by order of the Prefiderit, for this extravagant attack on the freedom of debate. The following particulars of a Counter- revo- lution plot is in all the public papers ; On Friday the 15th, the Municipality of Va- lence, a very confiderable town in Dauphiny, fent a formal information to the Magiftrates of Macon againft a Count de Buffi, Captain in the regiment of Lorraine, accufing him of having engaged a number of men to rendezvous at Be- fancon, to be joined there by a numerous army from Germany, commanded by the Marquis D'Antichamp. The Municipality of Macon were defired to fearch the Chateau de Ville, fituated 4 leagues from Macon, belonging to the faid Count Buffi, where they would find a quantity of arms, car- touches, and uniforms, & c. In confequence of this pofitive information, the Magiftrates, with the National Guards, to the1 " number of three hundred, went to the Chateau de Ville on the Saturday night, where they found a great quan- tity of arms, & c. as ftated in the intimation, As foon as M. Buffi faw the National Guards approaching, he ordered a large cheft to be thrown out of a window, which was found full of officers' uniforms. M. Buffi's papers were Secured; and himfelf, • with nine other Gentlemen,' then at ins houfe, were conducted to Macon, and a copy of their examination at the Hotel de Vine ef Macon, is fent to the Committee of Inquiry of the Nation- al Aiferr. bly.

" Trade has been very good for thefe two years bygone. The amazing quantity of new lands daily taken into cultivation, fecure a con- ftant increafe of our exports, and muft at laft turn the balance of trade greatly, in favour of the United States. Much has been faid about the increafe of our manufactures; but, in Britain,' manufactures carried on in fuch a fmall fcale, " would be defpiSed and laughed at. From the very high wages given to work people of all defcriptions by the farmers, to cultivate their lands, it muft be long before manufactures are carried on here to any extent. Not lefs than eight thoufand French emigrants have arrived in the United States thefe laft twelve months, and have gone moftly to the fouth." Yefterday new knapfacks were delivered to all the men belonging to the Guards who have been draughted for foreign fervice. They are conftruCtcd of thin canvafs, painted a light orange colour, to keep out the wet. The old Ones, which were of goat's hair, were returned. An cxchangc of new arms and accoutrements took place this morning previous to their being reviewed by the King. A new order is iflued for the Guards. They are not to march till Monday; and inftead of proceeding directly to Portfmoulh, they are to be quartered at Chichefter, Southampton, and Winchefter. A new invention has lately taken place on board feveral of the ihips of war in refpect to the . naval ordnance, by fixing a lock over each of the touch- holes, by which they will be discharg- ed without having recovlrfe to matches as hereto- fore. This experiment is expected to be pro- ductive of much good ; in particular to prevent fires on board fhips, too common in warm en- gagements. The herring fifhery on the Yarmouth coaft is likely to prove very fuccefsful this feafon. One hundred and fifty laft were brought into Yarmouth on Tuefday fe'ennighi. It is faid, that in confequence of the appoint- ment of Sir Roger Curtis as Captain to the Com- mander in Chief's fhip, much offence is taken by the other Captains of the fleet, and 27 of the Seniors have Signed a ftrong memorial and re- monftrance, which either has, or will, in a day or two, be prefented to his Majefty. The com- plaint made is, that the Captain of the Admiral's fhip ranking a-. d receiving pay as a Rear Ad- miral, the cuftom of the navy has been to ap- point a Senior and not a junior officer to that Sta- tion, whenever it lo happened, as at prcSent is the caSe, that the Rear Admiral's flag is ftruck.

A curious method of enlifting men for the new companies has been Successfully praftiled at Li- verpool and other adjacent towns :— The Ser- jeant and drummer have Birmingham watches hanging to all their pockets, and the drums have the fame ornaments. Every recruit has his option to chuSe his watch, befides the ad- vanced bounty. Th ® efleft which this preSent has upon the men is very Serifibly felt. The number of houfes at Birmingham is com- puted at nearly 13,000, three- fourths of which are under 10I. a- year, conlequently not liable to the payment of poor- rates— the inhabitants, therefore, mean to apply to Parliament for an act to rniike houfes rateable in the following proportions; 6d. in the pound for houfes of SI. greyhounds, offered to bett two hundred guineas to twenty, that they killed her, which the Prince of Wales accepted ; the courfe lafted about twelve minutes, afSording fine fport, and the dogs came off victorious. Mr. Chifslyn then publicly offered to bett two hundred guineas that his dogs, Catch and Fly, killed any hare that lay a mile from cover. On Monday William Harris, a prifoner in the King's Bench, was detected in paffing bad Silver ; he has for Some time been fufpefttd; he was taken info cuftody, and carried into the lobby of the Bench, and fearched before the Warden, where there was found on him four pound eigh- teen Shillings, all in bad Silver. One day laft week, a fellcw who had fome words with his wife, threw her out of a window, three ftories high, into a ftable- yard in Drury- lane. Luckily Ihe fell upon a large quantity of hay, and was providentially faved without any material injury. Fie has been fince ir. diCted lor the barbarous aft. GUILDHALL. A fufficient number of Aldermen not appearing to make a Court, bufinefs was adjourned till next TueSday. Bread was lowered half an affize, which takes place to- morrow.

The appearance of a comet is yet looked for within the courSe of the prefent year:— The comet thus expeCted, is the one which appeared in 1532, it re- appeared in 1661 ; and from its period being 129' years, its return excites the inquiries of the aitronomical. The feveral appeals to the General Quarter Sefiions from the convictions of trading JuJlices, is the bell proof what lhameful nuifances theSe perfons are in Society. A chimney Sweeper's boy, who undertook for a trifling wager to ride a pig from Cornhill to Milk- ftreet, in full gallops on Monday morning laft, had his Scull Sra& ured deSperately, by the animal's running under a coach with him. It is thought he cannot recover. A woman was lately delivered in Lancaftiire, of four children, two boys, and two girls; and what is remarkable, the boys have each of them t- ivo thumbs on each of their hands..

ExtraB of a Letter from Banbury, OB. 20. " This morning about nine o'clock, a nume- rous concourl'e of people a Sic m bled from all parts to See decided a long eXpeCted conteft between Richard CarcleSs and John Grant, of this place ; the former aged eighteen, and the other twenty- two years:— The parties met by agreement in a piece of ground adjoining to the town, called the Leys, well known among the pugilifts for being the Spot where Johnfon and Perrins fought; but, when juft ready, to fet to, they were pre- vented from taking their morning's diverfion by feveral gentlemen of the faff. This ungenteel intrufion obliged the gentlemen of the fifl, and their numerous retinue, to re rfi'tcr Banbury to determine this grand point of honour; but here they were again disappointed through the vigilance of our Mayor, aflifted by Some of his attendants; — being thus a Second time difturbed, the whole cavalcade then moved, not flowlv, but precipi- tately, into Northamptonshire, where they might amule themfelves without interruption. About ten o'clock the battle commenced; when, after a few rounds, the odds ran in favour of Grant ; but in the courfe of near two hours Srom the firft onSet, Carelefs was the favourite, who, after a fevere conteft of two hours and a half, bore the palm of victory.—- To fpeak impartially, we fcarce ever remember to have feen the fcienceof boxing difplayed with greater.. ability than by theSe two young amateurs : They both ftood boldly up, and . did not fall without a knock- down blow; when all was ended, and the mighty fum was to be. produced, to the aftoniihment ot all the beholders, it was a guinea."

Of Sir ANECDOTE ROBERT BOYD, lately appointed Gover- nor of Gibraliar. Sir Robert Boyd, nov/ Governor of Gibral- tar, had his military education in the Ordnance department, and was employed at Minorca in the year 175 J. At that time the French be- fieged the llland, and the brave General lilake- nev, after loiing feveral pofts, was obliged, preffed by numbers, to retire into the citadel of Fort St. Philip, at Port Mahon; the French fleet, under Monfieur Galiffoniere, blocking it up very clofely: General Blakeney perceiving the Englifh Squadron, under Admirals Byng aud Weft, at a dillance, wilhtd Sor an opportunity of making his Situation known. Many pcrfons. were applied to for the purpofe of going off tcH the fleet; but it was uniVerSally held imprac- ticable. At length Mr. Boyd, then one of the Ordnance Store- Keepers, oft'ered to go in ah open boat to the Englifh Squadron. Four men were found hardy enough to accompany him: and though the attempt was hazardous, and by many accounted rufti, he went through the French fleet, and after much toil and danger, reached the Ramifies, and delivered a lette'r to Admiral Byng. The late King gave him a com- miifion, and his further Services have raifed him to his preSent rank. The government of Gibraltar Is one cf the beft things in the military department in the gift of the Crown. Its emoluments arc various, according to the temper and dilpofition of the holder. He is a perfect viceroy, and no trade can be carricd on but by the Governor's exprefs. leave, either by land or Sea. Its nominal value is 4000I. it has been made 12,000!. General Hargrave, who held it many years fince, is faid to have found it worth upwards of I2, oool./ fr annum. — Lord Heathfield made moft of his money there, by which he became indepen- dent. OBSERVATIONS en tie ripening and filling of CORN, Ry Dr. ROEBUCK. RT SUMMER 1782 having been remarkably cold and unfavourable, the harvcft was very late, and much of the grain, efpecially oats, was green even in O& ober. In the beginning of Odtober the cold was fo great, that, in one night, there was produced on ponds near Kinneil, in the neighbourhood of Borrowltounnefs, ice three quarters ot an inch thick. It was apprehended by many farmers, that fuch a degree of cold would effectually prevent the further filling and ripening of their corn. In order to afcertain this point, Dr. Roebuck fele& ed feveral ftalks of oats, of nearly equal fulnefs, and immediately cut thofe which, on the moft attentive compan- ion, appeared the beft, and marked the others, but allowed them to remain in the fields fourteen days longer, at the end of which time, they too were cut, and k pt in a dry room for ten days. The grains of each parcel were then weighed ; when eleven of the grains which had been left Handing in the field, were found to be equal in weight to thirty of the grains which had been cut a fortnight fooner, though even the beft of the grains were far from being ripe. During that fortnight ( viz. from October 7 to October 21), the average heat accord- ing to Fahrenheit's thermometer, which was obferved every day at eight o'clock in the morning and fix in the evening, was a little above 43. Dr. Roebuck oblerves, that this ripening and filling of corn in folow a tem- perature fhould be the lefs furprifing to us,_ when we refiedt, that feed- corn will vegetate hi the fame degree of heat; and he draws an impor- tant inference from his obfervation, vis. That farmers fhould be cautious of cutting down their unripe com, on the fuppofition that, in a cold autumn, it could fill no more." MARK- LANE EXCHANGE, YESTERDAY.

TESTIMONIALS. " The conduft which. I hav-^ experienced from the Gentlemen Proprietors of the Royal Union Bank, No. 50, Lombard- ftreet, being not only honourable but princely, I cannot content myfelf by a bare acknow- ledgement for the money received, without annexing a more explicit teftimunial of liberality and integrity, which would add credit and luftre to any Houfe in the World. <( .. The Chance for which I pofiefs near Eight Hundred Pounds, I had gratis for an Half Guinea Share, dra- wn a Blank in the laft Irifh Lottery. Th s Change was loft, and a Reward of Twenty Guineas advertifc" d for it laft April, in the Daily Advertifer. . It never appeared or was heard of till Thurfday evening, the 26th November inft. when it was examined at No. 50, Lombard.- ftreet; and although it is plain that Meffrs. SHERGOLD and Co, could eafily and certainly have obtained it for the Reward of Twenty Guineas, and thereby fecured them- felves agamft paying me near Eight Hundred Pounds ; yet, with rigid and exemplary honour, they gave immediate notice to my Attorney, and moreover difpatched a { pe- dal meflengcT to myfelf, who arrived at my houfe, near Town Mailing, ir* Kent, at ten o'clock the fame night.

In yefterday's fitting, the decree on the chang- ing of the white flag for one which fhall have the three nation d colours was thus expreffed : *' The Affembly decrees that the French flag fhall, from this time, be of the three national colours, in fuch a form and manner as fhall be thought proper by the Marine Committee, and purfuant to orders received from the Affembly for that purpofe ; but that this new flag ( hall not be in ufe until the failors fliall be brought back to a ftate of perfe£ t fubordination and difcipline : " Decrees, befides, that inftead of the cry of Vive Is Roi ! repeated morning and evening on board the fhips, the expreffions of Vivant la Na- tion, la Lei, ef le Roll fhall henceforth be adopted." In tliis morning's fitting feveral motions were made refpefting the fabrication and engraving of the Aflignats. M. Praflin moved that the land forces fhould alfo be honoured with the ufe of national co- lours ; and that orders be iffued to all Colonels of regiments to adopt the three colours of liberty. This motion was agreed to with the loudeft applaufe. The Order of the Day was, the difcuffion of the propofed perfonal contribution, on which fubjeft three articles were decreed. ift. " From the firft of January 1791, there fliall be a perfonal contribution, the amount of which lb all be fixed yearly. 2d. Part of this contribution fhall be paid by all the inhabitants of the kingdom of every de- nomination ; the other part fhall be affeffed on public and private falaries, on the produce cf in- duftry, and on moveable goods. 3d. That part of this contribution to which all the inhabitants of the kingdom ( hall be liable,—( hall be levied on the qualifications of aftive citizens ( the annual value of a dwel- ling fhall be taken from the fum at which it is let, or according to proper eftimates of the real value)— on male fervants, on faddle horfes in towns, and on coaches and cabriolets both in towns and in the country." M. Bailly informed the Aflembly, that two houfes belonging to the nation were yefterday fold at Paris, one at the price it had been va- lued at, viz. i5, ooolivres ; the other for 62,300 livres, valued at 42, Bf^ livres only. LONDON. The laft mail has confirmed the intelligence we communicated on the authority of our correfpondent at Berlin. The Emperor gave the moft unequivocal affurance to the King of Pruflia of his determination religioufly to adhere to his engagements made at Reichenbach, and utterly difavowed the intimation made by the Prince de Kaunitz. He loft no time in making this difavowal; and it was well that he was prompt and explicit; for the King of Pruflia was fo exafperated at the official notice made to him from Vienna, that in two hours meficngers were difpatched to every Ration of his army, and a foecial meffenger fent to the Emperor at Frankfort, to whom he gave but a Few hours to confirm or difavow the meafure of his Minifter. Hfc was determined to have marched without de- lay. The prudence of Leopold happily faved Germany from a fndden war; and now it is believed the negociations will go on without further obftacle to a general peace. The difpatch brought laft Monday night by a meflenger from Paris, and the event upon which it is founded, namely, the decifion of the Na- tional Affembly of France in favour of the Mi- nifters, is important to England. We are led to believe, from circumftances which we will plainly deliver to the reader, that things are likely to take a turn in France favourable to this country. It was the party of the Enragees that made the famous report of the 25 th of Auguft, where a warlike conclufion is drawn fo inconfiltcntly from pacific premifes. On that report the decree was made for fulfilling the Family Compaft, and for arming 45 flups.- That party only were fufpi- cious of England, and they alone were for inter- fering in our difpute. In their quelljon of Tuef- day and Wednefday laft they failed anfd the Mi- nifters of France thereby derived ilrength which they had not before. It is not, therefore, un- likely that their influence will be exerted in pre- venting a war between England and Spain. The Minifters of France will certainly retire from their ftations, fatisfied that they were not driven from them. We have good reafon to think that the rumour is premature, which fays they have already retired. Extraft of a L tterfrcm Lintz., in Auflria, Oft. 11. '• In the fitting of the Diet of Hungary of the 6th inft. it was refolved, that the Count Caroly fhould immediately proceed to Frankfort, to intreat Leopold to confent to be crowned at Prefbourg inftead of Ofen, as it was in the fifft of thefe cities that he convoked the Diet. They propofe again to avail themfelves of this oppor- tunity to intreat him to accept of the Diploma as drawn up by the nation. " It is not probable that Leopold will confent to it, after having fo often faid, that he would in no particular depart from the determinations which he had laid down. It is, however, poilible that he may confent to make fome facrifices; for the Diploma to be prefented to him is confiderably modified, particularly in thofe parts refpefting the rights and privileges of the clergy." Yefterday morning, at ten o'clock, the three Firft Battalions of the Foot Guards were drawn up in two lines on the plain, oppofite the walnut- trees in Hyde Park. Precifcly at eleven o'clock his Majefty ar- rived from Windfor, and mounting his horfe near the Serpentine River, rode along the front line, when the men faced about, and his Ma- jsfty came down the rear, after which hi Majefty took poft in the front, and the whole of the brigade marched in companies by his Majefty. The King was accompanied by their Royal Highneffes the Prince of Wales, and the Dukes of York and Gloucefter, and attended by the Dukes of Richmond and Argyle, Lords Amherft and Dover, Sir W. Faucett, Colonel Golif- wortny, and a great number of General Officers ; and efcortedhy a party of the Life Guards and Light Horfe. His Royal Highnefs the Duke of York went on horfeback from Whitehall, which was the firft time of his being abroad ftnee his indif- pofition. The concourfe of people that aflembled on this occafion, exceeded by far every thing re membered on any former review ; and the ap pcarance of the whole of the brigade gave the higheft fatisfaftion to his Majefty and the fpec- tators. His Majefty appeared yefterday in the field, dreffed in fcarlet and gold, in the moft perfect health and fpirits ; and, notwithftanding the fe- verity of the weather, had his hat off almoft the whole time he was in the Park, which was near an hour. The King, after the review was over, dif- mounted and got into his chaife, and at twelve o'clock arrived at St. James's Palace. Mr. Pitt, accompanied by Colonel Lenox and Mr. Steele, was in Hyde Park on foot yef- terday morning, in order to fee the Brigade of Guards pafs before his Majefty. Extraft of a Letter from Plymouth Dock, Oft. 24. " On Wedntfday laft the men belonging to the Infpeftor, which lately came from Ireland, were turned over to the Severn of 44 guns. " On Thuifday laft the loilowing fhips were commiflioned, viz. the Powerfull, of 74 guns, the command of which was given to Capt. Mackenzie, the Druid frigate, the command of which was given to Capt. Ellifon, likewile the Chatham hulk. " Sailed on a cruize, the Syren, Capt. Minley. " On Friday the remaining part of the 34th regiment, which lay in the barracks, embarked 011 board the Charon, and the Militia having performed their month's exercife, were dif- banded. " The Glory, of 98 guns, a new ( hip, is get- ting ready to . be kcommiflioned as fait as pof- fible ; there being upwards of 200 men working on board her every day.— Every thing here hath the appearance of war, and Chaplains are much wanted for the men of war." Extr'aS of a Letter from Plymouth, Oft. Vj. " Sailed laft night his Majefty's fliip Hanni- bal, of 74 guns,, J. ColpoyS Commander, for Spithead, to join Lord Howe's fleet; " The Murine cutter, mentioned in mine of yefterday to have failed with difpatches for Gib- raltar, is come to anchor between the Ifland and Main ; the wind being ftrong at Weft prevents her failing. " The fquadron of men of war that have been, fince the 13th ultimo; at anchor in the Sound, have all, at different times, failed for Spithead. " Several parties of marines are embarked for Spithead. " The fuppofed Spy is ftill irt cuftody on board the Cambridge, Admiral Graves, where he is to remain till further orders. " The Diligence is arrived from Lifoon with fruit; and the Captain fays, it was reported there that the Province of Catalonia, in Spain, was fo averfe to war, that very few men entered either for the army or navy." The Argo ami Affurance, two 44 gun fhips in ordinary at Chatham, have been Isrvv'd, and officially reported fit for fervice ; in confe- quence of which, orders have been given imme- diately to prepare them for being commiflioned. They will be armed en flute, and employed in the tranfportation of troops deflined for foreign duty. The American of 64 guns, is ordered to be armed en flute, as is alfo the Experiment, of 44 guns.— They, are faid to be dellined for the Ealt Indies. Several engineers have received orders to pre- pare for foreign fervice, to accompany the troops now going out. On Saturday a boat belonging to the Brunf- wick, of 74 guns, was overfet in a fudden gull of wind, going from Portfmouth harbour to Spithead, and feven men and four women were unfortunately drowned. A volume of four hundred and forty pages has juft iffued from the prefs under the aufpici- ous name of M. de Calonne. Its title is " De l'Etat de la France, Prefent et a Venir." The purport of this book is a violent philippic againft the Revolution. M. de Calonne, in this volume ( which is to roufe all the loyal fpirits of France, and to af- femble under the ltandard of Conde, as we fup- pofe, " the great number of Princes of the blood- royal, all the moft illuftrious families of the kingdom, and more than 200,000 citizens expatriated"), condemns the National Affemb'y for their refolution to arm, which he avers was not provoked by the conduft of England. Nei- ther its King nor its Minifter had any holtile views againft France. This he can fay from his own obfervation—" for he has lived three years in England, and has never been deceived by an Englifhman." A melancholy circumftance happened in Hol- land on Friday laft. A Dutch yacht funk in the Maize River, and fourteen pcrfons pe- riflied. At the laft Judiciary Court held at Perth a lingular ' circumftance occurred. A perfor. was indifted for murder, and found guilty. The Counfel for the prifoner, after the verdift, difco- vered that one of the Jury was a Minor ; the verdift is therefore invalid; but the jet of the affair is, whether the prifoner can be legally tried again ; and this queftion is referred to the High Court of Seflion at Edinburgh. Yefterday Mr. Alderman Skinner flit in the Council Chamber at Guildhall, for the final examination of the four incendiaries, when Fyn- dall had his free pardon given him by Mr. Skin- ner ; after which, the information and evidence he hid given was read over, and which he figned. All the perfons whofe examinations had been taken at the different times attended, and the whole of them were bound over to profe cute ; the prifoners were then committed to Newgate for trial at the prefent feflions in the Old Bailey. Laft Thurfday afternoon, about three o'clock, a terrible fire broke out in a barn at Brandltone, near Burton, in the neighbourhood of Coventry, containing a large quantity of wheat and barley, which immediately communicated itfelf to two dwelling- houfes, a ftable, a large cart hovel, and two flacks of wheat and oats, which exhibited an appearance truly awful ; and notwithftanding every poffible aflillance, the whole was in a few hours reduced to afhes. As the wind was rather boifterous, it is imagined that, had it not been for the immediate arrival of the fire engine from Burton, and the united affiH^ nce 0f many per- fons from that place ( though two miles diftant) with that of the inhabitants of the village, the whole town would foon have been entirely de- ftroyed Providentially no lives were loft, nor any perfon materially hurt by this unfortunate event ; but the lofs fuftained by it, it is appre- hended, is very confiderable. Yefterday the Rev. Thomas Twigg, Lec- turer of the united parifhes of St. Margaret Lothbury, and St. Chriftopher le Stocks, was unanimoufly elefted Vicar of St. Stephen, Cols- man- ftreet, by the inhabitants of the laid parifh, vacant by the'death 0/ the Rev.

OLD BALLET. FIRST DAY. Wednefday. This day the Seflions commenced, when Elizabeth Cooper was tried for bigamy, hav- ing married a perfon of the name of Prior, while her former hufband, Cooper, was living ; it appeared, that after a feparation of more than feven years, flie was informed by her fun, a young boy, wh< 5 had made enquiry, that Cooper was dead j but the report was foon difcovered to be falfe.— The Jury, after having confulted for about an hour, acquitted her. Mary Hickwell was arraigned for robbing her miftrefs, Mrs.. Tindall, of plate and jewellery to a confiderable amount, but nothing but a pair of gloves and a pillow cafe bring found in her box, fhe was found guilty of Healing to the value of the above two articles. George Story was put to the bar for robbing Mr. Briggs of a filter watch on the highway on the 17th of Oftober. As Mr. Briggs and a perfon of the name of Baifely, were coming in a coach over Finchley Common, they were at- attacked by two perrons near Coiney hatch — The prifoner, armed with a cutlafa, opened the coach door, and feeing the chair, of Mr. Briggs'* watch hanging out, he attempted to feize it. Some refiftance being made, he called out to his affociate, who was ftationed with a piftol on the other fide of the coach, to fire. Baifely then j^ p^ d cat, and caught hold of the piftol, and a fcuflle enfued, upon which the prifoner ran over to the afliitance of his companion, and knocked Baifely down with a blow of his cutlafs. Briggs, feeing the prifoner's arm lifted up, ran, and received a blow on the neck, which wounded him. Atthis junfture Baifely, who ftill remained ftretched on the ground, called out that fome perfons were riding up to the; r afliflance. The affailants then made oft"; but Briggs, who had taken an accurate obfervation of the prifoner's perfon by the moon- light, called out that he fhould know him. The prifoner hereupon turned about, and made anfwer, that he would murder him the Monday week following 1 — The prifoner was taken by Robert Dawfori, a Conftable, at his father's houfe, and committed. The Jury, after a ( liort confultation, found him — Guilty. , Eleven were convifted of felonies, and 13 acquitted. Leeds, Oftober, 25. A tax of 2s. per pound on cotton unmanufac tured, allowing the import to amount to thirty- two millions of pounds, would raife 3,290,000!. a year ; which would enable the Miiiilter to re- peal the window- tax, and leave a furplus of near two millions. In the years 1782 and 1783, cot- ton fold for 3s. 6d. a pound, but it is now only 1 id. to I4d. the price, therefore, with the above duty, would not be higher than at the above period. We hear that the paragraph in a former paper, refpefting the farmer being cheated out of his. pigs at the late Barnfley Fair, has traced out the fwindler ( a pig jobber that refided not a hundred miles from this place), who has thought proper to decamp upon tbe occafion. —— STOCKS, YESTERDAY AT ONE O'CLOCK.
