' RECEIVED IN TOWN THIS MORNING NATIONAL ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, January 18. The evening sitting was opened by an indication to the Assembly, that some others of the Clergy had taken the oaths. The joy occasioned by the returning duty of the Ecclesiastics, was interrupted by M. de Fermont informing the National Assembly, that a pretended brief of the Pope was now circulating in the department of I'Ille and Vilaine, setting forth to the people, that the Assembly, in decreeing the Civil Constitution of ihe Clergy, had exceeded its powers; that the Clergy who had taken the oath required by the Decree of the 17th of November, are Schismatics; and that a perseverance on their parts will amount to heresy. M. de Fermont also obfcrved, that this pretended brief is circulated in many other departments, which proves, that these dangerous productions proceed from a common center, with a view to be circulated all over the kingdom. A long debate now took place respecting the measures necessary to be adopted for preventing the evils effects in- tended to be produced by the circulation of such papers, when it was resolved to send the piece to the Committee of researches, aud legal steps should be immediately taken against the authors and distributors of this pretended brief of the Pope. The Senegal Company, which has been long complained of by commercial people of every description, as an unjust monopoly, was this day suppressed by a Decree of the As- sembly, declaring that the trade to Senegal shall hence- forward be open to all the subjects of France. WEDNESDAY, January 19. It was not against Carpentats ( as formerly stated) but Cavailion, that the Soldiers de Soissonnois, and the National Guards of Avignon, had marched. A letter which was read by the President announced that every thing had been put to fire and sword in that unfortunate town. In this letter, the protection of the National Assembly is invoked in behalf of such of the distressed inhabitants as had escaped the sword of the assassins. Before, however, proceeding to a discussion upon the subject, the Assembly thought proper to defer the examination of the information to the Diplo- matic Committee. The numerous losses sustained by persons sending Assig- nats into the provinces, as lately stated by M. Foucauld, continue to be complained of; and, notwithstanding, the fact has been confirmed by a representation of the Com- mittee of Finances, the Assembly has not yet been able to apply a remedy to the grievance. The Question of Juries was again resumed, when one of the Articles which had taken much time to determine, was adopted 5 namely, That the examination of witnesses shall be oral, in presence of the Juries, and not in writing. TURKS and RUSSIANS. The reports in circulation, of the capture of Ismael, are confirmed by authentic letters from Vienna, dated the 9th instant, from which we extract the following account of the victory On the morning of the 22d of December, General Suwarow, who had arrived but a day or two before, di vided the Russian army into six columns, appointed for the attack of the fortress in as many different places. The first column was led by himself at the head of his own regiment, and the whole body rushed forward, with the most ferocious courage, before the walls had been sufficiently thinned by bombs, or other engines, used to intimidate the enemy upon an attack. . The Turks resisted, for a long time, with great courage, but with n0 appearance of success on any side. Whether they asked for quarter is not known ; but it is certain they received none.-— Long after the contest was decided, the Russians were employed in butchering them, wherever they could be found, and by any means. The greater part were hewed down by swords— some were knocked on the head-- very few received the COUP DE GRACE of a shot. In the heat of the slaughter, thousands were mangled, but not killed ; and it was some time before thefe wretches could obtain the blessings of death from their conquerors. No military action of late times can approach so near to the character of massacre. Many parts of the fortress literally streamed with blood ; and the whole Russian army, the Cossacks especially, retired— hideous from the effects of their own cruelty Of the thirteen thousand men, composing the garrison, only four hundred, including the Pacha Commandant, and a Tartarian Prince, were permitted to live. The Russians lost twelve hundred men, and, amongst them, the Generals Jakowsbi, and Budberg. Thus has been revived in Europe, in the eighteenth cen. tury, by a nation professing obedience to the laws of civilization, and actually obeying a female, a splendid, courteous Queen, that mode of warfare which dismisses gallantry and spirited gentleness from the character of a soldier, and teaches men to lore war for the means, more than for the end ! It is remarkable, that all the conquest which the Russians have made over the Turks, have been obtained either with- out resistance, or have been attended with the most horrid butchery. This is a natural consequence of the terror which the Russian name strikes into the breasts of the Turkish soldiers, and which the conquerors have taken pains to inspire and to keep up. The dread of indiscriminate slaughter operates on the Turks so forcibly, that, on several occasions, they have not even attempted to resist. The Grand Vizir, instead of opposing his forces to those of the Russians in defence of Ismael, as he boasted it was his intention, fled towards the defiles of Mount Haemus, where he is likely to suffer much for want of provisions during the winter. In these circumstances, the negociations carrying 0n for the support of the Turkish Empire, daily verging to ruin, require more circumspection than ever. WARSAW, January 8. Letters from Berlin give us little reason to hope a con- tinuance of peace. The troops on the Vistula are to be augmented, and among the regiments that have received 1 orders to hold themselves in readiness to march, is that of the Duke of Brunswick to Halberstadt, that of Thadden to Halle, and a part of that of Lignowski to Berlin, toge- ther with a regiment of cavalry, all which are to be in- creased to the war complement by the 16th instant. Russia, far from appearing dismayed at the league that is forming, is making the most active preparations, the ex- tent of which may well excite astonishment, from the mag- nitude of its resources. Estonia, Livonia, and White Russia, are abundantly supplied with troops and it is sup- posed that, beside the recruits which are annually raised to complete the respective corps, there are at present 70,000 effective men in those provinces, and these will be speedily augmented, not only by recruits that are expected, but by from 15,000 to 20,000 regular veteran troops, said to have arrived in the district of Kiovia from the army of Prince Potemkin, who retains principally the light troops to act against the Turks. According to a Representation, which is given as au- thentic, of the different Russian corps at present, as well in Estonia, Livonia, and White Russia, as in the government of Kiovia, they are said to amount as follows : Men. In Livonia, including the battalions in garrison, 54- 95° In White Russia, exclusive of the battalions in gar- rison - - " , S3. « 9 Six battalions in garrison in White Russia, each ot 60? men, amounting together to - 3.°° o In the Ukaine, or the government of Kiovia, 35.806 Exclusive of the different corps at present employed against the Turks upon the Danube, and in the Cuban, and the troops that occupy the conquests in Bessarabia, & c. To complete, as well the forces under Prince Potemkin, as Commander in Chief, including those of the govern- ment of Kiovia, as to supply the deficiences on board the fleet in the Black Sea, and the flotilla on the Danube, 35,000 recruits are necessary, which exceeds the proportion that, according to the late regulation, these departments ought to furnish. To complete the corps dispersed in the governments of Riga, Revel, and White Russia, under the command of General Soltikow, orders have been given to raise 11,191 men. The divisions of Petersburgh, of Wybourg, or of Finland, under the command of General Comte Bruce, will require 8184 men ; the government of Orenbourgh will require 755 ; and for the fleet will be required 5130.— The total of the recruits to be raised, and which will be furnished in conformity to the late regulations, amount to 47,293 men. INDIA INTELLIGENCE. FROM TIPPOO SULTAN TO THE GOVERNOR OF MADRAS. Dated 7th Ramjam, or 22d May 1790. ( Received 2d June 1790.) I have received your friendly letter of the 20th of Rajub 1204 ( the 6th of April) by your Hircarrah, and I have understood the whole of its contents. What you write me respecting your arrival and appointment to the Government of Madras, I understood ; and it has been the cause of much pleasure to me, as the friendship and good will be- tween the Circar, the English Rajah ( the King of England) and the Company, which is founded on particular treaties, is so well known that it stands not in need of ex- planation. Nevertheless, at this time, notwithstanding the bonds of friendship are firmly established, in consequence of the intervention of certain necessary and important con- cerns, and the representations contrary to the fact of certain short- sighted persons to you, they have caused an army to be assembled on both sides.— As this event is improper among those who are mutually at friendship, I wish, there- fore, that in order to clear it up, and to have certain im- portant matters represented, to send to you a person of dig- nity, with some other persons, that the Vakeel of the Circar, having arrived with you, may explain the whole circum- stances to you, and that the dust which has obscured your upright mind may be removed. Agreeably to the custom of friendship, you will quickly inform me of your approval of my sending a dignified person of this Circar; and you will send orders to the con- fines of the Carnatic not to molest him, but that the Va- keels be escorted to you in safety. In a word, the wish of my heart is this— that agreeable to the Articles of the Treaty of Peace, our friendship may daily increase ; and that, by the favour of the Almighty, there may never be the smallest deviation therefrom. In the same manner as I before wrote on this subject, so I now again write to you, constantly rejoice me with accounts of your welfare. May you be prosperous ! Translated by JOSEPH GANOW, P. TR. A true copy, w. c. JACKSON. A true copy of the translation, J. TOMBELLE, SUB- SEC. Which, together, independent of the garrison of , Kiovia, form a total of - ANSWER OF THE GOVERNOR OF MADRAS TO TIPPOO SULTAN. I have received yours, and understand its contents. You are a great Prince, and, but for your cruelty to your prisoners, I should add an enlightened one. The English equally incapable of offering an insult, or of submitting to one, have already looked upon war as declared from the moment you attacked their Ally the King of Travancore. God does not always give the battle to the strong, nor the race to the swift, but generally success to those, whose cause is just ; and upon that we depend. What can I say more ? The following is an account of an engagement between the Mahrattas, assisted by the English, and Ishmael Beg, a Country Power. PATAN CAMP, July 1, 1791- On the 20th ot June, our army, under General Du Boyne, obtained a most complete victory ; by which, the greatest Saindeah ever gained, we took one hundred pieces of camion, fifteen elephants, camels innumerable, one hundred pair of colours, and the enemy's whole baggage. The following morning, seven battalions and 10,000 irre- gular troops laid down their arms and submitted to the conquerors. In the course of three days, we took the strong town of Patan by storm, which was afterwards razed to the ground, and so intimidated the Rajah who commanded Patan fort, a place resembling Gibraltar, from its almost impregnable position, that he submitted to become a vassal of Saindeah, and is now with us on our march towards Jeypour. Our signal victory was gained with only the loss of about 700 men killed and wounded ; but the number of the enemy who have fallen must be immense; for it is said, that beside those left in the field, the road from hence to Jeypour, about thirty coss, is covered with the dead car- Cases of men, horses, camels, and bullocks. Their camp, which was three miles in length and one in breadth, we burned, and left not a stick standing. Our success affords a strong proof of the amazing power of discipline, under a brave and skilful commander. Our infantry, which gained this battle, for the Mahratta horse remained in the rear, only consisted of about 6000 fighting men, and con- quered an army of 25,000 infantry, and upwards of 20,000 cavalry. We expect, this campaign, to be entirely masters of the Rajepoot country. This success must certainly overthrow the Mogul interest in this part of Hindostan. Some great politicians say, that the Nabob Vizier is happy in having such a powerful ally as the English. IRISH PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. HOUS E of LORDS. THURSDAY, Jan. 20. This day his Excellency John Earl of Westmoreland, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, came in state to the House of Peers; where being seated on the throne, his Excellency opened the Sessions of Parliament, with the following most gracious Speech My Lords and Gentlemen, I have some pleasure in acquainting you, by the King's command, that the differences which had arisen between his Majesty and the Court of Spain, have happily been brought so an amicable termination. Copies of the Declarations exchanged between his Majesty'S Ambassador and the Mi- nister of the Catholic King, and of the Convention which has been since concluded, will be laid before you. Had the honour of his Majesty's Crown, and the pro- tection of the rights and interests of the empire involved his kingdoms in the calamities of war, the zeal manifested by all his subjects, and by none more than his loyal people of Ireland, had left him no doubt of the most vigorous and effectual support. It is a source of peculiar satisfaction to his Majesty, that those objects have been accomplished with- out any actual inturuption of the blessings of peace. Gentlemen of the House of Commons, I have ordered the proper officers to lay the National Ac- counts before you, fully relying upon your accustomed zeal to provide for the exigencies of the State, and the ho- nourable support of his Majesty's Government. I have also ordered an Account of the extraordinary ex- pences of Government which have been incurred during the Negociations with Spain, to be laid before you ; and I trust you will find that, the confidence you reposed in me has not been misplaced. My Lords and Gentlemen, Your disposition to facilitate tne business of Commerce, and to consult the ease of the merchants, will induce you to consider, and if possible to accomplish, during this Session, such regulations as may tend to simplify the Collection of the various Articles of the Public Revenue. Your unremitted care of the Agriculture, Trade, and Manufactures of this kingdom, and particularly the Linen Manufacture, and your accustomed liberality to the Pro- testant Charter- schools, and other public institutions for Charitable purposes, make it unnecessary for me to direct your attention to those objects individualy. A more intimite acquaintance with this country has in- creased my wishes for its welfare ; and I have observed with the sincerest saitsfaction, the extention of her agriculture, her rising trade, and improving manufactures. You may be assured of my co operation in every measure that may conduce to those important purposes ; and whilst I thus fulfil his Majesty's commands, I shall attain the highest object of my ambition if I can be instrumental in contri- buting to the prosperity and happiness of Ireland. FRIDAY, Jan. 21. The Marquis of WATERFORD reported from the Com- mittee appointed to prepare an Address to his Majesty, which being read paragraph by paragraph, and the question put upon each, passed NEM. CON. Lord BECTIVE reported from the Committee appointed to prepare an Address to his Excellency, which being read, and the question put, it was carried in the affirmative with only one dissentient. A motion was made and agreed to unanimously, that the Lord Lieutenaut be humbly requested to forward the Ad- dress_ voted to the King, and that his Excellency be pleased appoint a time to receive it for that purpose, and also to re- ceive the Address of Thanks voted to his Excellency, and that the Chancellor and the House should present the same. HOUSE of COMMONS. Mr. JOHN WOLFE reported from the Committee ap- pointed to prepare the Address to his Majesty, which was read, to a paragraph thanking his Majesty for recommend- ing to the House a simplification of the mode of collecting Revenue Duties for the ease of the Merchant. Mr. PONSONBY asked what was meant by that vague and indefinite proposal, and wished the proper Minister of the department would explain. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER rose, and did explain, that it was wished the House would adopt such re. gulations touching the collection of duties, as should, in- stead of being paid in the present troublesome mode, and in separate sums, according to the several additional duties granted from time to time, ascertain to the merchants at once the whole in one sum. The measure, he said, had been suggested by the mode already adopted by Great Britain. Wines, sugars, and some other commodities were already reduced to the regulation here. If therefore the House thought proper to extend it to every article charg- ed with specific duties, he should most cheerfully give the purpose every assistance in his power. When that paragraph was read which returns thanks to his Majesty, for continuing his Excellency the Earl ot Westmoreland in the chief government of this country, Sir RICHARD MULGRAVE said, he could not agree with the measure, as, thanking his Majesty for the con- tinuance of the present Viceroy would in fact be approving the measures of his predecessor, which were uniformly per- petuated in the present Administration. As to the sum which the house had granted towards the conducting of an eventual war with Spain, he thought this country would do enough in paying the interest of it, without the grant of any new loan for the principle He condemned, in pointed terms, the tame monotony in which the House de- graded its own dignity, by the same kind of adulation to every succeeding Ruler, good or bad, Log or Stork. The tea was generally palliated, under the idea of being a mere matter of form ; but this he rediculed in a vein of pointed ny.— Sir Richard pursued his pleasantry, and threw the House into repeated fits of laughter. The Address, however, was carried, without amend- ment or alteration. The House adjourned till next day.

This article, though cheap, and its use simple, possesses the most admirable properties. It restores the lost colour of Nankeen dresses of every kind ; and changes the white ground of ladies decayed linen or cotton gowns, drawing- room or bed- furniture, & c. & c. to a bright and beauti- ful chintz- pattern ground, without the least injury to the figure; but, on the contrary, gives a brighter lustre to the colours, and leaves a fine gloss upon the surface of the cloth. Upwards of twenty different colours may be produced by the varied admixture of this Dye in water, from a beautiful fawn- colour, or pale pink, to a rich buff, or bright orange, adapted to ladies or gentlemens linen or cotton dresses of every kind. One bottle is sufficient for two or three gowns, or for a change of gentlemens breeches for the whole summer; and is used in the scald without any diffi. culty or trouble — Price One Shilling the bottle, with directions. Also the REAL VEGETABLE CHINESE LIQUID BLUE, the most cheap and elegant for blueing silk stockings ar. d linen, or for dying silks, i& c. in stone jars, at One Shilling each, jar CAUTION to wholesale and Retail Purchasers. The reputation and utility of thefe VEGETABLE DYES have already excited spurious imitations, which, being com- pounds of a VITRIOLIC acid, destroy the fabric, and are dan- gerous to use. Persons, who buy them wholesale from London, or retail in the country, should therefore be careful to order BERKENHOLT's Nankeen Dye and Liquid Blue; and to observe that each bottle and jar of thac which is genuine is co- vered with a RED STAMP, having upon it the arms of China, and the signature of " FRA. BERKENHOUT," to imitate which is a capital felony. COMPARISON. Whoever tries the spurious sorts will find the colour weak and difficult to strike and if they add a quantity sufficient to obviate this defect, the cloth becomes impaired, and suffers almost im- mediate decay : whereas the genuine sort nourishes and renews the fabric. This is the difference of effect betwixt VEGETABLE and viTrioLic acidity, which, by those who value their linen, should be attended to with caution. To prevent imposition, as much as possible, these Dyes will in future be sold whole sale ONLY by CHAMPANTE and WHIT- ROW, in Jewry- street, Aldgate, London.

GENUINE PECTORAL BALSAM of HONEY, Invented by the late Sir JOHN HILL, M. D. And now faithfully prepared from his Ms. Recipes, by his Relict and executrix, the Hon. LADY HILL, at her house in Curzon- street, Berkley square, London. MORE than thirty years experience has con- firmed the unequalled efficacy and safety of this ele- gant medicine in the immediate relief, and gradual cure, of Coughs, Colds, Sore Throats, Hoarseness, Difficulty of Breath- ing, Catarrhs, Astmahs, and Consumptions; for it is the greatest preserver of the Lungs, and contains all the healing, softening, and soothing qualities of that salubrious extract of flowers called Honey, and the essential parts of the richest Balsams; it is as restorative as Asses Milk, and never disagrees with the stomach. A tea- spoonful in a wine glass of water is a dose, converting the water into a most pleasant balsamic liquor, to be taken morn- ing and evening. A common cold yields to the benign influence of this medicine in a few hours; and when resorted to before the lungs are ulcerated, all danger of Consumption is certainly prevented. Such are the faint outlines of the merits of Sir John Hill's Balsam of Honey, a preparation of most exalted efficacy, the result of long researches into nature, by the Lin- naeus of Britain; a man who dedicated his life to Botany, and justly fought the true means of health in the vegetable kingdom -'- but as the severest human laws are unequal to the prevention of extreme fraud by coining and forgery, so it is not to be ad- mired that the merits ot this medicine have induced base and avaricious men to vend COUNTERFEIT PREPARATIONS of it, preparations not merely devoid of efficacy, but also highly deleterious for it is not long since that the Lady of the Rev. Mr. Fowler of Peterborough, had nearly fallen a sacrifice to a spu- rious Balsam of Honey, sold by one Horden, of that place, and which he shewed to have been bought by him, as Genuine, of a wholesale DrUggist in London. Sold, by special appointment of Lady Hill ( as by the London Gazette ot March 23, 1790), by W. Bacon, at his Medicinal Waiehouse, No. 150, Oxford- Street, London, in bottles price 34. 6d, each.

N. B. Lady Hill signs her Name upon every bottle ; and " W. Bacon," as Vender, is written by him upon every stamp. No others are Genuine. There are also bottles ( containing more than seveu at 31. 6d.) price one guinea each; these are only sold at Mr. Bacon's house. , THURSDAY, Jan. 27. From the LONDON GAZETTE.

The Prince of Wales gave a ball on Friday at his hunting seat at Kempshot, to the Ladies and Gen- tlemen of Hampshire. The Hunt and their Families were present, and it was a most splendid fete. This is the first of a series of fetes which are to make Hampshire a scene of gaiety and fashion The last accounts from Jamaica convey the plea- sing intelligence of the amended date of the Gover- nour's health, so that all thoughts of his return to. England are for the present laid aside. His Excel- lency, by the mildness and justice of his government, has rendered himself very popular. Lady Effingham too enjoys the most perfect health, and is beloved by all ranks of people for her condes- cension and affability of manners. All hopes of an union of interests between the rival Opera Houses are at end, at least for the present season. The interests of each party are too widely extended to produce a coalition, and accordingly both Houses are preparing to open. Mrs. Jordan was overturned in her carriage on Friday evening in Russel- street, on her way home from the Theatre. Two captives, an old man and his daughter, lately redeemed at Fez, report, that in the interiour parts of Africa, the Christian slaves are so numerous as to have formed a sort of colony, under the in- spection and for the profit of their masters, who debar them from any communication with the towns on the coast. On the 12th instant, the troops in the pay of the popular party at Liege, marched out of the city at nine in the morning by beat of drum, and took their route towards France. The same day at noon the troops of the circles entered the city. The Patriots of Liege, on their retreat, carryed off a part of the cannon from the ramparts along with them. Lord Dungarvon, it is understood, not mean to prosecute his late prosecutrix. The lady, however, with the apprehensions natural to guilt, has quitted her late lodgings, and is not to be found. A letter from Dartmouth, Jan. 24, says, " Ye- sterday morning sailed his Majesty's ship the Squirrel, Capt. Drury; and at 5 o'clock P. M. the Albion East Indiaman, Capt, William Parker, got under sail, with a fine leading wind from N. E. " The recruits on board the Albion were very troublesome; but by the spirited conduct of Capt. Parker and his Officers, their mutinous disposition was soon quelled." fortunately escaped; but his wife and children are unfortunately numbered among the victims to the fury of the elements. A passenger in the Elizabeth, arrived at Sou- thampton from Cherburgh, brings intelligence that the inhabitants of that place and neighbourhood were much alarmed on Tuesday night last, between ten and eleven o'clock, with two shocks of an earthquake the last of which was so violent as to destroy several houses in the country near Cherburgh ; few lives were lost, most of the inhabitants having quitted their dwellings on the first alarm. The Treaty of Alliance, between Poland and the Porte, is now published; by the articles it ap- pears, that Poland has at length unequivocally joined with Prussia against the Empress; therefore, unless a Peace should be speedily concluded, Russia will have to contend in the spring with a most formi- dable combination, Prussia, Poland, Turkey, the English, and the Dutch. By the Commercial Treaty, that is subjoined to the Treaty of Alliance, the Poles are allowed the Navigation of the Black Sea, the Boristhenes, and the Sea of Azof, to fifty of their merchant ships, with several privileges and exemptions. It may be presumed that similar advantages may be obtained to England, for her interference, in the Levant. A great number of French families have emi- grated to America since the Revolution, many of which, that could not find bread at home, have carryed with them useful arts and manufactures. The Pope holds frequent conferences in the Va- tican on the subject of the ecclesiastical affairs of France : he seems very undecided ; neither the pre- vailing principles of the Court of Rome, nor the advice of the French, who are now in that capital, will lead him to agree to the new order of things; which, should it be adopted in all Catholick coun- tries, would reduce the Pontifical power to nothing, and leave the Pope only the naked title of the Head of the Church ; on the other hand, it is not at present politick in the Holy See, nor is it agree- able to the personal charafter of Pius VI, to use harsh and violent measures. Benjamin Brian, commonly called Big Ben, was born in Kingswood, near Bristol, and is a twin. His twin- brother now resides at the place of their nativity, and is considerably superior to Ben, both in make and strength. LONDON. On Monday night, at eleven o'clock, a messenger arrived at the Secretary of State's Office, Whitehall, with letters from his Excellency Earl Gowev, his Majesty's Ambassador at the Court of France, which were carried to the Duke of Leeds at his house in Grosvenor- square. Tuesday the Commission passed the Seal, directed to the Hon. J. C. Berkley, Surveyor- General of the Ordnance, and the Colonels d'Aubant, Pringle, and MoncriefFe, appointing them a Committee for the purpose of inspecting the Works of Defence in the British West- India Islands, and for making a Report thereof. An order is issued from the Treasury to all the Public Offices of Government, to make up their ac- counts complete to the 31st of December last, par- ticularly those respecting cash, receipts and pay- ments. Tuesday morning there was a meeting on East. India affairs, at the Minister's house in Downing- street. Tuesday sugars rose in the market two shillings and sixpence in the hundred. The reason of the rise is given out by the merchants to be owing to the great exportation that has taken place for some time past. There are at this time, at Portsmouth, eleven ships of the line, under the command of Admiral Goodall, from which, by order of the Admiralty Board, none of the Officers are permitted to sleep on shore, being under orders for sea at the shortest notice. Lord Hood is to have the command, if they should put to sea. In consequence of the war with Tippoo, the silver sent out for the purchase of teas in China, has been all put ashore at Madras, to be applied to the exi- gencies of Government at that Presidency. The investment of teas will be all bought, therefore, with bills on England, by which the price will be ad- vanced, and the Company here will have to raise an additional sum of money for their liquidation. A letter from Boston, New England, Dec. 11, says, " The demands for the produce of America are most rapidly and incredibly increasing; for one single house has actually exported and sold, within a very short time, 2000 barrels of pot and pearl ashes, 2000 barrels of beef, 500 ditto of pork, 6o, ooolb. weight of butter, and 1500 bushels of beans and peas. « • The beef exported, within the last twelve months from this state, has been upwards of 45,000 barrels, 5000 of which have been exported by one person, viz. Jonathan Winship, who is remarkable for selling what is deemed excellent:— Fine fat beef for two pence halfpenny a pound is now selling. I wish it was possible to convey some of our fine fat turkeys to you; we can have as fine a one for a shilling as I have given six shillings for in London. Our news from New- York is very disagreeable indeed : General Scott, Major Fountain, Major Willis, Capt. M'Murtray, and Lieut. Fortingham, have all fallen sacrifices to the Indians, after a terri- ble conflict on the banks of a river : there were such numbers of the Indians killed, and thrown into the river, that their dead bodies actually stopt the cur- rent of it. " The frost is now very intense at New- York, and we are here likely to have a very severe winter. It is with some difficulty I write this, as the ink freezes in my pen." The late Duchess of Modena was Duchess of Massa- Cavara in her own right. The Duchy of course descends to her only daughter, the wife of the Archduke Ferdinand ; who will, however, accept 30,000 sequins annually in lieu of it, during the life of his father in law The Archduke is also next heir in succession to the Duchy of Modena. Tuesday at half past two o'clock, died at his house in St. James's place, George Selwyn, Esq in the 72d year of his age ; by whose death, Lord Sydney inherits an estate of 2, oool. per annum, with the Representation of the Borough of Luggershall in Wiltshire. A natural daughter, whom be had by the Italian Singer, Signora Faniani, it is said, is intitled by his will to his personal estate amounting It is said that Johnson has most solemnly declared that he will never again fight a pitched battle. Where would be the harm, if all the Russians would declare the same thing, and for once keep their word ? Thursday a murder was committed on the body of a young woman at the Sun alehouse, St. Catherine's- lane, by a sailor, who, going to sleep, found she had picked his pocket of nine guineas; upon which he took out his knife and cut her in the belly, and then took the nine guineas out of her pocket and ran away, but being pursued was soon taken. It was with great difficulty the woman could be taken be- fore the Justice to swear to the man, as she was ex- pected to die every moment. to upwards of 30,0001 The placcs of Surveyor of the Crown Lands : Sur- veyor of the Meltings, and Clerk of the irons in the Mint, tic. are vacant by Mr. Selwyn's death The Duke of Wirtemberg had the misfortune of a fall from his horse in coming from the Prince of Wales's seat at Kempshot, and we are sorry to say the young Prince has dislocated his shouldcr by the fall. A letter from Paris says—" The Duke of Orleans lately preferred a claim to the National Assembly of some very large arrears which he stated were due to his grandfather, and which were not acknowledged by them. On this ground, which it is imagined by many here was only meant as a preparative, he has at once discharged all his large retinue of j servants; he has shut up all his state apartments in ; the Palais Royal; and, with his Lady, has retired into the condition of a private Gentleman. " What a falling off this is may be guessed when . I tell you, that in my memory the attendants on his ancestor were about 1000 followers !— when the state he lived in at his different houses almost equalled the splendor of Versailles. " He retains at present not above sixteen servants on his whole establishment. Every day in this city gives further proof the reduction of former grandeur which displayed itself in every street." A public meeting has been called, in a provincial newspaper, of the Gentlemen in the county of Hun- tingdon and its neighbourhood, to consider of for- warding, by their application to Parliament, the long talked of measure of a tax on dogs, the produce thereof, if the idea should be carried into effect to be appropriated towards diminishing the poor- rates in those countries. The resignation of Judge Wilson was on Monday the subject of conversation at Westminster- Hall. That Gentleman, it is however asserted, has received ma- terial benefit from the change of air and climate ; and his return from Lisbon is looked for early in the spring. A letter from Portsmouth, dated January says, Arrived at Spithead four Transports from the Eastward, bound to Botany Bay. The Gorgon will be ready to go out of the harbour in the course of this week to join them, and will sail the first fair wind for New South Wales, " The Theatre of this town, which has been shut by the Magistrates for these last five weeks on account of some disturbances in the house, to the great injury of the proprietors and company, opened this evening regularly licensed. The Managers have taken the opportunity of this unfortunate vacation to add a row of upper boxes to each side of the house ; and, to gratify the amateurs of Music, they have engaged Mr. Darley, late of Covent- Garden and Vauxhall. " The Marine Officer and the navy Gentleman, who made two attempts to fight a duel, and were interrupted by the Magistrates, as mentioned in a former paper, on Friday withdrew their recognizances and shook hands in Court. Mr. Rainsford is bound to take his trial next sessions, himself in iool. and two others in 50I. each, and also to keep the peace, himself in 500I." Among the fatal disasters which have attended the late hurricanes, we are sorry to learn, that a new raised Independent Company, which were embarked last week in a light collier for the coast of Sussex, were shipwrecked, and every soul on board perished. The Captain being called up to the War- office, Colonel Lenox is recovering from his indisposition, which at first was very serious. On Tuesday the late Printer cf the Morning He- rald was brought to the Court of King's Bench, Westtminster, to receive judgment, for a libel, when the sentence of the Court was, that he be imprisoned in the King's Bench one year, and during that time to stand in the pillory at Charring Cross, for one hour, between twelve and two o'clock. On Friday last died, at his house near Crofts square, Bishopsgate- street, Mr. Thomas Kent, aged 69 — Mr. Kent was many years remarkable for his sordid manner of living, though possessed of an opulent for- tune, as, from the lowest state of indigence, he gra- dually came into possession of the whole court in which he lived, as well as several other tenements in dif- ferent parts of the town. Mr. K. and his wife were well known for several years, by riding in the cha racter of King and Queen to Horn- fair, as well by accumulating a sufficiency for purchasing the first house they lived in, by boiling bones which they picked up in the streets. During the life of his spouse, they always kept their birth- day, by distributing beef and beer among their tenants ; but since her death, though his property as been encreasing, his disposition became so penurious, that from his appearance among strangers, he was frequently mistaken for a beggar.

ANDERSON'S only genuine SCOTS PILLS are prepared by the sole Proprietor, JAMES INGISH, at the Unicorn, No. 165, opposite the New Church in the Strand, London. More than 150 Years Experience has proved this Medicine to be extremely useful in Disorders of the Stomach and Bowels, particularly in Bilious and Drop- sical Complaints, Indigestion after hard drink- ing, Surfeits, Want of Appetite or Sleep, Rheumatism, Gravel, and all Obstructions. Worms cannot breed in the Bodies of those who frequenil take this Medicine. One or two Pills, taken twice a Week or oftener will prevent the Scurvy. It will keep its Virtues many Years, and in all Climates, is therefore this best Medicine for seafaring People. It is very useful in Disorders pe- culiar to Women at all Ages, particularly at a certain advanced Time of Life; and may be taken with great Advantage during the whole Time of Pregnancy ; is so efficatious and gentle, that it may be taken from infancy to extreme old Age by both Sexes. It does not always purge in dropsical Habits, and very severe Colds, only operating by Urine or Sweat. A greater Proof of the Excellency of this Medicine cannot be given, than that the Gentlemen of the Faculty take it often. The late celebrated Physician, Sir Edward Hulse, Bart. was so fully convinced of the great Utility of it, that he gave Mr. Inglish Certificate, recommending it as a very useful Family Medicine. To prevent Imposition, Mr. Inglish thinks it absolutely neces- sary to inform the Public, that in Pursuance of a late Act of Par- liament, none in future, which are genuine, can be sold in Great Britain without a Stamp affixed to the Outside Cover, wrapped round the Box, with the following Words, " J. Inglish, No 105, Strand, opposite the New Church," printed upon all the Stamps, at the Stamp- office, by Consent of the Commissioners, the Imita- tor. of which will be a capital Offence.

To the PRINTERS of the KENTISH GAZETTE. GENTLEMEN, AS your paper is generally read, and its credit and re- putation firmly established, I hope, through So fa- vourable a medium, to be indulged with a few hints con- cerning TONTINES. Would it not be praiSe worthy in those who Solicit the attention of the public to Tontine Subscriptions to state, in a clear manner, what are the probable advantages that may be expected from such establishments ? And is there no probability that the Scheme may be frustrated by a fall of stocks, and end in total disappointment ? Let people judge for themselves by what follows : 1. A thousand perSons Subscribe nine pounds two shil- lings apiece, to be put out to interest at cent, the principal and interest to accumulate during Seven years and a half and the Survivors at the end of seven years, or their representatives, to divide the whole among them. The annual mortality one in . forty. Query, the sum to be di- vided, the number of Survivors, and the share aud profit of each person ? AnSwer. Sum, Number, 837,6. Share, 14). 141. Profit, jt. 12s. 2. A thousand persons agree to pay Sixpence a week for seVen years ; the money to be invested from time to time in the 4 per cents, and there to accumulate at compound in- terest for seven years and a half; then to be divided among the Survivors. The stock, throughout the term, at par, and the mortality one in forty every year. An annual payment of a shilling for the expences of the So ciety. Query, as above' AnSwer. Sum, 10,117!. 16s, Number, 837,6. Share, Til. Profit, 2l. 11s. 3. Suppose as in number 1 ; except that the stock Falls 10 per cent, in the ad, 3d, 4th, and yth year, and that it rises again to par at the end of the term. required as before? Answer. Sim, 10,410!. Number, 837,6. Share, til. 8s. - Profit, 2l. 9s. 4. SuppoSing every thing as in number 2 ; except that, at the end of the term when the stock is to be sold, the fund should be fallen 10 per cent, below par. Queie as before ? Answer. Sum, 8, ioal. 4s. Number, 837,6, 9). 13s. Profit, 4 shillings. 5 Forty persons agree to subscribe 79 fli: Shillings each; of which A subcribes 39 D, and the rest, one share apiece ; the whole at the end of the year among the survivors within the year, as is to be expected be A ; then and the will, - ceive twenty shillings of A's money. or any of the others dies, A's dividend will be only nine shillings and tenpence farthing. ' The above Suppositions and queries, with the answers annexed, will convince the public what degree 0f advantage to be expected from Tonitines, limited t0 the term of seven years, better than any arguments whatever. SANDWICH, Jan. I6, 1791. z , FRIDAY', Jan. 28. LONDON. YeSTErDAy being the birth day° f his } ^ Royal Highness Prince Augustus Fre- derick, their Majesty's sixth Son, who completes the 18th year of his age, their Majesties and the Princesses re- ceived the compliments of the Nobility, & c. on the occasion, at the Drawing room at St. James's. Wednesday morning the King, attended by Co- lonel Greville, took an airing on horseback, on the Kent road, and at eleven o'clock returned to Buck- ingham House. Wednesday at noon, dispatches were received at the Secretary of State's Office, Whitehall, from Mr. Jackson at Berlin. Wednesday orders were issued from the Admiralty for a general rendezvous to be opened in town for the entering of volunteers to man the ships in com- mission at Portsmouth, Plymouth, and in the Med- way. Lieutenant Tyrrell is appointed to superintend the general rendezvous. This step has been rendered necessary by the Sea- men on board the men of war, who did not choose to remain in the King's service, having been dis- charged. No bounty has been offered, nor have these orders had any influence to alarm the public minds in the city, or depress the funds ; though they have certainly been hastened by the arrival of the last official dispatches from the Continent. it is proba- ble that the recent successes of the EmpreSs of Russia's forces may make it necessary to accelerate our armaments destined for the assistance of the Turks. The reports circulated of the defeat of Colonel Floyd's detachment are not confirmed ; but it is cer- tain, that an officer was dispatched by him to Ge- neral Medows, from the advanced post of Santumun- gulum, with intelligence, that Tippoo had passed the Gauts to attack him. In consequence of this information, General Me- dows has begun to march, by disencumbering him- self of his heavy artillery ; and was hastening to join Colonel Floyd, who had also received another consi- derable reinforcement, If the Colonel could retain his situation till the ar- rival of General Medows, a general action between our army and that of Tippoos's, it was thought, would ensue ; and, in Such a situation, and discom- fiture, though less than actual defeat in the field, must be very dangerous to Tippoo, as it would be scarcely possible for him to regain the Mysore Thr lottery begins drawing on Wednesday the 9th of February. PROMPT PAYMENT. The ONLY Office where Prizes are paid in full. The very extraordinary Advantage of TEN THOUSAND POUNDS IS absolutely given to the Public, who purchase TICKETS, HALVES, QUARTERS, EIGHTHS, and SIXTEENTHS, at the Office of HORNSBY and Co. in the prefent EnglisH Stute Lottery ; for which consideration no addi • tional charge is made. The purchaser Shall receive the very same day that such Ticket or Share is drawn a Prize, the full amount of such Prize; or, if drawn a Blank in the course of the first ten thousand Blanks drawn, he will likewise receive 4I. for each, and so in proportion for every share, without the minutest Half — 10,000 they pay 10,000 Quarter — 5, coo they pay 5,000 Eighth — 2,500 they pay 1,500 Sixteenth — 1,250 they pay 1,250 And for the first Ten Thousand BLANKS 4I. each. HORNSBY and Co. respectfully point out, to their friends and the public, the above most Singular and lucrative advantages, as, in fact, they amount to a clear saving of 400I. in the capital Prizes, 8s in the lowest Prize of 20I. and even 2S. on each ot the first ten thousand Blanks, and that too paid ( as above stated) the very day the Prize is drawn. Lottery Clubs and Societies are particularly recommended to notice this proposal, as they will save an immense expence on all Prizes, and have an opportunity of dividing their Prize- money immediately. country, in me face of our army unless his own was in the strictest discipline and good order. It must be evident to the Porte, that their domi- nions in Europe can be no longer maintained, unless STATE LOTTERY OFFICE. BANK- 8TREET, CORNHILL, L0NDON, OPPOSITE THE BANK Of ENGLAND. MR. NICHOLSON, MOST redpectfully acquaints his numerous friends, and the Public, that he is selling, in the greatest variety of Numbers, and lowest terms, the Tickets and legal Stamped Shares for the present English State Lottery, that begins drawing the 9th February 1791. Tlic Prizes arising thereto, as well as f ur pounds each for the first ten thousand Blanks, will be paid their full value as soon as drawn. Mr. Nicholson's Office has been uncommonly fortunate to those who have honoured him with their commands, viz. In the late IrisH Lottery, No. 17,049, drawn a Prize of Ten Thousand Pounds, the 13th December last, was sold in a whole Ticket, by Mr. NICHOLSON. And in the late English and Irish Lotteries, England interferes to check the progress of Russia, which has now become truly alarming the crisis is so important that no reasonable terms would be denied to England for such interference. By a vessel from Grenada, arrived at Bristol there is advice, that the troubles in Martinico are encreased; another engagement has taken placa between the soi- disant Patriots at St. Pierre, and the inhabitants and their slaves, as well as the free Negroes and Mulattoes, under the command of the Governor, the Vicompte de Damas, in which the former have been Severely treated It is reported that the town of Fort Royal has been burnt; several of the plan of the late M. Gerardine, in the neigh- bourhood of St. Pierre, the property of Mad. Dillon, the wife of Arthur Dillon, Esq. the late Governor of Tobago. The papers mention an intended Canal from New- bury to Bath. Before this can be undertaken advan- tageously, the two rivers should be previously made perfectly navigable without locks, otherwise the same ruin will attend the adventurers as that in forming a junction between the Severn and the Thames. The waters are so high up the country, that the barges pass without danger over the very tops of the locks. This proves the necessity of correcting the River without them. Miss Brunton is expected to give her hand to a Gentleman engaged in the carpet manufactory. The treaty of marriage may, therefore, literally be said to be on the tapis. Colonel Lenox's disorder was a violent cold, which confined him to his room, but not to his bed. He is recovered. By the death of George Selwyn, the Duke of Queensberry loses one of his earliest companions and latest friends. The young Lady to whom the once gay and witty George Selwyn has bequeathed the sum of 30,000! is a natural daughter of the Duke of Queensberry. This young Lady is now in the twenty- third year of her age. For some time she has managed the domestic concerns of Mr. Selwyn, who, at a very early period, treated her as his adopted child. She is possessed of the most valuable acomplishments, and of the most amiable qualities of the mind. The Duke of Queensberry's pecuniary property will also devolve to this fortunate fair one. His Grace is reported to command more ready money than any Nobleman in England. Some state it to amount to between two and three huudred thousand pounds slerling! His Grace and the late Mr. Selwyn lived en fa- mille at Riclwnond. Their houses are contiguous to each other, enchantingly situated on the banks of the Thames. The Sufferings at Lloyd's by the late hurricanes have been lighter than could have been expected, as very few ships of consequence have been totally lost. The damage has been principally sustained by coasters and small vessels. During the late gales of wind, the smugglers have been uncommonly active on all the coasts of the king- dom. The risk of their lives secured their property— for the Customhouse- boats were afraid to follow them. Mr. Dodd, a master's mate on board the Victory, lying in Portsmouth harbour, was unfortunately killed on Friday last. A stauncheon falling from the main deck struck him on the head, and fractured his skull so much, that he expired the next morning The coroner's inquest have returned a verdict of accidental death ; and the body was on Monday con- veyed on shore, aud put into a hearse, in order to be brought to London to be interred. On Saturday last, a man who was in the hospital at Plymouth, was, on his own confession secured for the murder of the woman who was found in a ditch at Sommers Place, in July last The Albion East Indiaman had not left Torbay on Friday last, having been repeatedly blown back by contrary winds. As, however, it is an ill wind that blows nobody good, the gentleman and lady, who were left on shore at Portfmouth, had recovered their passage, and were then safe on board. The Hon. Miss Eardley, who is on the point of being married to an elegant and accomplished young nobleman, is to receive fifty thousand pounds as her marriage portion, besides a private annuity for pin money, during the term of her natural life. Malt Tax.— Four general meetings of the farmers resident in the counties of Stafford and Warwick, have lately been held for the consideratipn of the pro- priety of applying to Parliament, for a repeal of the late additional tax on malt.— Their final resolution was, to present a petition by their representatives for that purpose. Prince Potemkin's dismission of his heavy baggage plainly bespeaks an intention of taking immediate advantage of the terror inspired by the late victories of the Russians. He will, no doubt, effectually con- vince the Congress at Sistore, that he can fight and conquer rather faster than they can argue and decide. From some messages that have lately passed between the Prussian and Imperial Generals, relating to the affairs at Liege, the people of that Principality begin to hope for the interference of Frederic the Third in their favour. It is probable that the great carnage which ensued after the capture of ISmael was principally owing to the number of lives that were lost in the assault. The Russian accounts affirm that only 1200 of their Sol- diers were killed, but the letters from Vienna state that 2000 Cossacks fell in the attack. Capt. Neil Campbell ( of the Fame, from Cork for Port Glasgow, wrecked in the storm of the 14th ult. near Liverpool, and all on board perished) is the last of seven sons who have perished in the same manner; his father was lost some years ago at sea. The East India Company's paper in Bengal, bare the following discount, when the last letters left Cal- cutta :- » - Bonds 11 per cent. Certificates bearing 8 per cent, interest, bore 1 j per cent, interest; those bearing only 6 per cent, interest were at a discount of 16 per cent. There never was a war commenced with greater prospect of success than that against Tippoo, and every thing has hitherto favoured our views against the tyrant. The junction of the Mahrattas and the Nizam with our forces, will be of infinite advantage to US from their succours of horse, without which it would be impossible to subdue Tippoo's country The Mahrattas were, according to the last letters, already - n the borders of his country to the north- ward the Bombay forces were to the westward, Ge- neral Medows to the eastward, and Colonel Kelly in the south Tippoo's troops have every where fled before our armies without making the smallest shew of resistence, and his operations which have hitherto been merely defensive prove that his aim is to wait for succours from France, in which he will certainly be disappointed. A letter from Paris, dated Jan. 20, says, " The Castle of M de Clarac was remarked by the country people be the rendezvous of many unpopular characters — The National Militia, desirous to un- ravel the mystery, headed by a Captain, marched to the spot in their way to the house they perceived a black boy, holding a number of horses behind a hedge toed To their mistrust, and what hap- pened at their nearer approach to the Castle con- siderably augmented it the servants rushed out, as if to oppose them, but the National Guards, sur- rounding the domesticks, made prisoners of them ; their masters then appeared, and made use of very improper language; in short, a pistol was fired from the Castle on the Mayor, but did no injury— a second was discharged, a ball of which grazed the commanding- officer's chin ; nothing then could stop the people's fury— the besieged shut the Castle- mately of opinion, that the petitioners were not intitled to prove Such bills under the Commission. Mr. Lloyd as CounSel for the petitioners, Wylie and Co. contended, that his clients were entitled to prove those bills under the Commission, and to receive a proportionable dividend. Wylie and Co. had discounted these bills for LiveSey, Hargrave and Co. and did not know that the prayers were fictious persons. They had given Solid money for the hills, and were of course intitled to prove them under the Commission. The Lord Chancellor Said, the petitions might maintain a general assumpsit for all the money they had paid for Such bills, being money paid without consideration. Therefore deducting the diScount, they had a right to prove under the Commission all the money which they gave for those bills. His Lordship ordered the bills to be delivered up to the Assignees. Mr. Solicitor General on the other side Said, they wished to do what he was Sure his Lordship would not permit them to do, to prove the amount of these bills under the permission and likewise to keep the bills till the great question was de- cided in the HouSe of Lords, and then perhaps they might make Something of the bills. His Lordship Said he would not permit them to do this. The petitioners must make their choice. They must either be Satisfied with proving under the Commission, the amount of the money which they delivered to the Bankrupt, de- ducing diScounts and giving up the bills. Or if they wished to stand upon the bills, they could not now prove the money, which they had given for the bills. It the House of Lords on the great question that was depending before them, should determine that bills drawn in favour of fictitious payees were good bills payable to bearer, or to any other perSon, the holders of those bills would be entitled to come against all those perSons whose names were upon the back of the bills. His Lordship said, for his part he had always been of opinion, and he never had any difficulty in stating it, that to suppoSe that any man could recover on a forged bill was almost a contradiction. If he had paid hard cash so, such a bill, he might have a general ASSUMPFIT for recovering back the money he had paid. It was agreed by the Counsel 0n both sides, that the pe- tition should stand over tilL the next day of the petitions, when the question now pending in the House of Lords would probably be determined. gates, and retreated ; new efforts were exerted to break them open, which could not be effected— the Peasants then got torches and faggots, in order to set fire to the hpuie, and in less than five minutes it was in a blaze;— the aristocratick garrison was therefore obliged to surrender— one of them the quondam Marquis Descairat, who had incurred popular odium ( or some antecedent tranfaction, trembling for his life, wrapt in a wet blanket, hid himself in a narrow subterraneous part of the house, where he was discovered and shot to death ; they then dragged him out of the dungeon, almost by piece- meal, and severed his head from his body, which they afterwards carried as a trophy through the streets of Buzet, in the vicinity of which town Clarac- Castle was;— the Gentleman of the house is now in the jail of Toulouse— much information is expected relative to this business— this affair took place last week."

On Saturday the Lord Chancellor sat at Lincoln's Inn Hall, and finished Bankrupt Petitions. WYLIE and Co. V LIVESEY and Co. This was a Petition of Wylie and Co. the prayer of which was to receive a dividend of 2s. 9d. per pound under the commission of Livesey, Hargiave, and Co. The Commissioners of Bankrupts allowed the peti- tioners to prove the whole of their debt under the Com- mission. But they afterwards thought they had done wrong. In consequence of this the petitioners had not re- ceived a dividend for that part of their debt, which the Commissioners upon more mature deliberation thought ought not to have been proved. The petitioners were creditors of Livesey, Hargrave and Co. to a large amount. And Livesey, and Co. gave them a number of bills drawn by them, LiveSey and Co. on GibSon and JohnSon. Some of these bills were drawn in favour of fictitious persons. The Commissioners were ulti- CANTERBURY, Jan. 28. Extract of a letter from Chatham, Jan 24 " Monday last when the Dictator was paid ofF, the ship's company made the boatswain a present of a silver Call, Chain, and Gorget, and a watch of seven guineas value ; likewise a large body of them assembled and drew him in an open chaise through Chatham, Rochester, aud Brompton, amidst un- common bursts of applause— a far better compliment than cutting off his ears.

Saturday the Camel storeship came to an anchor at Sheerness, and on Monday morning went up to Chatham, in order to deliver her stores, and return to Portsmouth. The Martin sloop of war is fitting at Chatham ; she will shortly go to the Northward, being destined for the Leith station. Contrary winds still prevent the Sandwich's going up to be paid of. The following singular accident happened at Chi- dingstone, near Sevenoaks, Kent. One Samuel Bevin, clerk of the parish, and gardener to Henry Streatfield, Esq. of that place, used every night just before going to bed, to take a walk round the gar- den ; some sew nights since he was seen with a candle and lantern to go to the garden, but not returning home at night, enquiry was the next morning made after him without effect, till one of his friends recol- lecting there was a canal at the bottom of the garden, conceived that he might have fell into it ; upon going down to satisfy his curiosity, he observed a hat on the Surface of the water, which he immediately knew to be that of the person missing, and on attempting to draw the hat towards him, to his great surprize, he Saw the body standing in an upright posture quite dead, the water being just above his eyes. It is con- jectured, that the poor man had walked into the ca- nal, and there perished for want of assistance. Late on Saturday night, or early on Sunday morning, the shop of Mr. John Botting, at Wrotham, was broke open, and robbed of goods to the amount of eleven pounds and upwards.
