BY YESTERDAY'S MAIL FROM FLANDERS. AFFAIRS OF POLAND. The General Confederation of Grodno has issued orders to arrest, and bring to punishment, all agitators; and also to prevent the assembling of clubs for the discussion of politics. The Marechals of the two United General Confederation have written a letter to the King of Poland, stating, i. That they pro- pose to diminish the number of troops in the Capital. 2 To detach the regiment of Lithua- nian Foot Guards, and the regiment of Infantry under the command of M. Dzialynski. And, 3. To diminish the number of Military Quarters in the neighbourhood of Warsaw. The conclusion of this Letter is as follows: " Your Majesty must acknowledge, that the factions, who by means of their machinations produced the Revolution of the 3d of May, dissolved all the bases which served for the sup- port of the Republic, and of its Civil and Po- litical Liberty, having degraded the Re- public, under the yoke of Monarchical Despo- tism. It is in conseqence of this principle, that the General Confederation of the two Na- tions is convinced, that not only your Majesty will not give any opposition to these measures, dictated by prudence ; but that you yourself, born a noble Pole and a freeman, and wishing for nothing but the happiness of a country, which is common to you with the rest of the Citizens, will not spare either pains, or efforts, to render the Government of this Republic, which you are connected with by so many ties, at once moderate free, and durable. Such, in fact, is the only ambition which is permitted to a King, Who ought not to consider himself as the Master, but as the Chief, of the State confided to his care: Given at Grodno, Nov. 29, 1792. The Prussian Minister at Warsaw, in answer to a note from the General Confederation re- specting. the report of the entrance of a Corps of Prussian troops into the Polish territory, has as- sured the Confederation, that he had received no information of the measure alluded to ; but that, for the greater satisfaction of the Repub- lic, he would forward the note of the Confede- ration to the Prussian Ministry, who would an- swer more fully on that head, although the re- gard of his Prussian Majesty for the welfare and happiness of the Republic is too well known to excite any alarm. Extract of a Letter from Stockholm, Dec. 24. " From the ferment which has prevailed here, for some time, we are fearful the public order and tranquillity will shortly be disturbed. The Government does not appear disposed to proceed with too much severity against those who pro- fess sentiments opposite to those of the Consti- tution. Of this we may judge by the following transaction : On the 21st of this month M. Thorild published a pamphlet entitled " The Liberty of Reason laid open to the Regent, and to the Swedish Nation.'' This pamphlet is ad- dressed throughout to his Highness, and sum- mons him to grant to the Nation an unfettered liberty of reason, and points out the happiness it might enjoy under a Republican form of Go- vernment. In the evening this pamphlet was suppressed, and the Author taken into custody. The next day, M. Thorild having been brought before a Court of Justice, the people demanded that the doors should be open, that all the Citi- zens might assist at the trial. This being com- plied with, on hearing his defence, they ap- plauded the Prisoner very much, and on his re- turn they accompanied the carriage in which he was, crying, Vive thorild ! Vive la Liberte !" ACTION AT HOCKHEIM, BETWEEN THE FRENCH AND THE COMBINED PRUSSIAN AND HESSIAN ArMIES. Head- Quarters, Hockheim, Jan. 7, 1793. Yesterday afternoon his Prussian Majesty, accompanied by his Serene Highness the Duke of Brunswick, arrived here, from the action which took place at Hockheim. His Majesty honoured the Theatre with his presence, and went afterwards to the ball given by his Royal Highness the Prince Royal of Prussia. All we know of the action is, that it was very, smart on both sides. The French troops stationed at Cassel, under command of General Neuinger, wanted to force their way to Hockheim; but the Hessian and Prussian troops contested this passage with that valour which they are so renowned for. Prince Hohenlohe, whose head- quarters are at Weisbaden arrived likewise in the field of battle, and attacked the French in the flank, which forced, them to make a precipitate retreat to their entrenchments at Cassel. On this occa- casion, the Prussain General Wolfrath had his horse shot under him. When the King of Prussia entered Hockheim, twelve Frenchmen, who were concealed in the Tower above the town- gate, fired down with muskets and carbines upon his Majesty, who was then very close, but providentially escaped without being hurt. A Hessian detachment immediately rushed into the Tower, and cut these murderous French banditti in pieces. The French left 300 men dead and wounded on the field. The Hessian Chasseurs have suf- fered considerably. This afternoon 163 Frenchmen, and twelve pieces of cannon, were brought in here, pre- ceded by twelve trumpeters, as trophies of the engagement. More prisoners are expected to- morrow. A French Colonel has just been brought in prisoner. The City of Rotterdam has suffered much by a high tide. The people were obliged to re- turn from church in boats; and the poorer class of the inhabitants, many of whom dwell in cellars, were great sufFerers. Much damage is done to the tobacco, sugar, & c in the Mer chants' warehouses on the ground floors. A numerous detachment of Houlans has pass- ed the Rhine near Wesel. The Prussian troops destined for the safety of the Duchy of Cleves, are also expected on the 19th at that place, where they are to be reinforced by several Aus- trian regiments. A letter from Mentz, dated Dec. 30, says. " The Prussians have just intercepted a convoy of great- coats, and a chest of money, destined for the French army." A Gentleman just arrived from Vienna, men- tions a daring attempt to set fire to that city. In consequence, fifty persons Have been taken up on suspicion. Yefterday, on account of fome important news Adminifl ration had received from the Con- tinent, a Council was fummoned to meet the King in his clofet at St. James's, at five o'clock, when they afi'etribled, and fat till fix. Yefterday the Attorney and Solicitor Gene- ral had audiences of Mr. Pitt, at his houfe in Downing- ftreet. Lord Amherft is appointed Commander in Chief ofthe Britifh Army. Her Majefty has appointed Lady Cathcart Governefs to the Princeifes, in the room of Lady Charlotte Finch, uho retire . In the Irifh Ijloufe of Lords, the motion for an Addrefs to his Majefty on the Speech at the opening of the feffion was made by the Earl of Weftmeath, and carried unanimoufly. The motion for an Addrefs to the Lord- Lieutenant was made by Lord Vifcount Dillon, and op- poled by the Duke of I. einfter ; oil which Lord • Portarlington faid, he was forry to differ from the Noble Duke, with whom he had fo long-, agreed ; but in the prefent inftance he felt that it was as neceffary in Ireland for Parliament to unite and refill the enemies of the Conllitutien, as it was in England, where party was laid afide- to fate the country. He knew not of any par- ties in this country ; but if fuch there were, he was fenfible that they fhould give place to the more important co" fideration of the public fafety. On the q "' ion being put, the Duke was the only difliSiUcn.. The Addrefs from the Houfe of Commons- was carried unanimoufly, with one amendment on the motion of Mr. Grattan. A Gentleman of Manchefter has received a- letter, which ftates that the Americans have de- manded the forts in that country to be given, up, which fome tine back wer : the fubjefl of public dil'cuffion with our Gi vemment. It is afferted as a fart, that upwards of 15,000 mufquets have been conveyed within a few days paft to different parts of the fea coaft, to be fmuggled over to France. The national paper- credit of France is nour reduced to one half its nominal value, and exhi- bits to furrounding nations the fatality of an unlimited paper circulation- The banking bu- linefs has multiplied in a wonderful degree, Houfes art ei'ablifhed in cities and towns,, and in many villages, for the general accommodation in exchanging and circulating paper. . Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, Jan. 17. " This morning the 59th Regiment of Foot embarked on board rhe Shark, Tisiphone, Trim- mer, and Drake, sloops of war, for Guernsey and Jersey. " The most serious apprehensions are enter- tained by Government, that these Islands will be attacked before this regiment can arrive to- their relief. " This morning the following note was put into Orders, and read by Colonel Don at the head of the regiment. " His Majesty is sorry to part so soon with his 59th Regiment after their return from foreign service ; but the exi- gencies of the State require their going abroad ; and his Majesty, having the highest opinion of 68 L L O Y D ' S E V E N I N G - P O S T , And Jan. 18— 21 their steadiness and gallantry, has appointed to them the Post of Honour." " There are now at Spithead ten sail of the line, three frigates, and six sloops of war." Yesterday a Court of Directors was held at the India- House, when the following ships were taken up in addition to those already entertained this season, for the express purpose of bring- ing home sugar from Bengal, at a freight of J2I. per ton i the General Coote, Warren Hastings, Northumberland, Deptford, Kent, and Earl Cornwallis. An East- Indiaman, American- built, bound to Ostend, arrived on Thursday in Dover har- bour, having received damage in a gale of wind she attempted to get into Ramsgate harbour, but could not succeed. The Experiment, Heath, of Torbay, sailed from St. John's, Newfoundland, to the Banks, on the 19th of September, 1792, with orders to return on the 12th of October following, and has not since been heard of. A few days ago sailed down the River, the Fortune sloop of war, Capt. Wooldridge. While the sloop was lying in Woolwich Yard, one of the new- invented contrivances for securing Ship- rudders, - was fitted to her stern by Mr. De Lolme, the inventor. The design of the inven- tion is to prevent Ship- rudders from being Car- tied away by the violence of the sea, in a storm ; which is one of the most dangerous accidents that can happen to a ship at sea; ships that have met with such an accident, being seldom heard of afterwards. The contrivance is also useful for preventing the men at the helm from being overpowered by the rudder; an accident through which sailors are often severely hurt, while doing duty at the helm. This steadiness procured to the rudder, also insures safety to the whole ship. As a consequence of the men at the helm being overpowered, and of the po- sition of the rudder being thus forcibly altered, the ship becomes suddenly east into a disadvanta- geous, unforeseen situation; when every thing upon deck, men and boats, are in danger of being washed overboard. A misfortune of this kind happened to the Thynne Packet, bring- ing the Mail from Quebec, in November, 1790: one of the spokes of the rudder- wheel having broke in the hands of one of the men, the ship, broached- to ; when, out of ten men who were upon deck, seven were washed overboard in an instant, and never more seen afterwards. As an additional consequence of the men at the helm being overpowered, the masts may also be broken, or even the ship may be completely overset: in an article of Lloyd's Lift of the 20th of last November, mention was made of a large; ship found at sea, bottom upwards, without a rudder.— The contrivance above alluded to, may be applied alike to ships steered by a wheel, and to those steered by a tiller without a wheel. Mr. De Lolme, we understand, has obtained a Patent for the Invention, as well as for some other Inventions relative to shipping. A comet was discovered on Thursday the 10th inst. by Samuel Barker, Esq. of Whitwell. in the county of Rutland. It appears about the size of a star of the third magnitude; and when it was first discovred, it was about the pole of the ecliptick, and moved very fast across Cepheus and Cassiopeia, and on Monday the 14th was midway between Cassiopeia and the girdle of Andromeda Monday last a very respectable meeting was held at Sutton Coldfield, to take into consider- ation the utility of a navigable canal, from Brad- ley Coal- mines to Fazeley, & c. ( taking Walsall Sutton Coldfield, and Litchfield, in its course). which being generally acceded to, a Committee was appointed to manage and carry the same into effect. Upwards of 29,100 pockets of hops were weighed at Worcester Market, from Christmas 1791, to Christmas, 1792. Extract of a Letter from Cheltenham. On Tuesday last, inconsequence of previous notice, the inhabitants of this place assembled to dinner at the Plough Inn, for the purpose of attending the execution of Tom Pain; which ceremony was duly performed in the afternoon " An effigy had been prepared by Mrs. Birch the landlady; and at four o'clock, a cart being provided, he was placed therein, attended by Mr. John Stiles, as executioner. The cart was drawn by two horses through the town, and Mr. John Wills preceded On horseback as she- riff. On their arrival at the place of execution, which was opposite the Plough ( where a gallows had been previoufly erected), he was tied up; and " God save the King" was sung in full chorus by above 200 persons. He was then turned off, and Lord Berkeley's band played al- ternately, " God save the King," and " Rule Britannia," for an hour; during which time a quantity of faggots were placed round the gal- lows, and then set on fire. When the flames had completely reached the head of Tom, great explosion took place-; and squibs, repre- senting fire- brands, were thrown about to considerable distance, but which became self- extinguished on falling to the ground. " A large party of gentlemen of the town and country were assembled on the occasion, who continued in conviviality till Wednesday morn- ing-" At the Quarter- Sessions for Surry, which commenced on Tuesday- last, the Solicitor of the Treasury caused a Bill to be preferred against Edward Cooper, a grocer, in Southwark, for selling Paine's Letter to the Addressers ; which Bill was found by the Grand Jury. On Thursday a lamplighter was taken before the Magistrates at the Police- Office, Queen- street, and by them committed to Clerkenwell Bridewell for a month, for leaving his work un- done in the Liberty of the Rolls and Chancery- lane. . Yesterday a man was committed from the Pub- lic Office, in Bow- street, on suspicion of having lately committed divers burglaries in and about London. THEATRE, GUY's HOSPITAL.

At one o'clock her Majesty and the three eldest Princesses set off in a post- coach and four with the usual escort to Windsor- Lodge.

B R I T I S H C H R O N I C L E , for 1793 7 POSTSCRIPT. AFFAIRS of FRANCE. NATIONAL CONVENTION. Monday, Jan. 14. A Letter was read from M. Bertrand, the Ex- Minister, who complained, that the Mi- nifter of Justice had not delivered to the of- ficial defenders of Louis XVI. certain papers which he had addressed to them. The Minister of Juftice said, he had delivered those pieces into the hands of the Commission of Twelve. A Member of this Commission declared, that the pieces had been presented to Malesherbes, but the latter would not make any use of them. The Convention called for the Order of the Day, being The FINAL JUDGMENT of LOUIS XVI. M. Lehardi.— There is a great variety of opinions in this Assembly, relative to the con- duct of Louis XVI. but there is one truth which we all ought to recognize, and that is, that his Judgment ought to be sanCtioned by the People. M. Denou presented a series of Questions to be decided upon by the Convention. M. Louvett wished to know, previous to his passing Sentence on Louis XVI. whether there was to be an Appeal to the Primary As- semblies ? Camberceres, Guadet, and Quenette, argued on the mode of decision. The President then summed up what had been said by the various Members, and put the question twice without effeCt. The nominal appeal was then called for; and, after much noise, riot, and confusion, it was decided, that the following order should be observed relative to the Questions about to be discussed : Is Louis guilty? 2. Shall the judgment be submitted to the sanction of the people ? 3. What punishment shall be inflicted upon him ? N. B. The Session of this day did not break up until ten o'clock. Tuesday, Jan. 15. A profound silence having taken place, M. Manuel read the first question with an audible voice : " Is Louis guilty of a conspiracy against the Liberty of the Nation, and the safety of the state ?" The objeCt of deliberation being thus fixed, Salles, another of the Secretaries, commenced the Nominal Appeal. Each Member in his turn ascended the Tri- bune, and expressed his opinion by saying Yes, or No. At the same time, his declaration was registered exactly opposite his name, in order that printed lists might be made out, and trans- mitted to the 84 Departments. The Nominal Appeal being finished, the Pre- sident examined the Register, and made the fol- lowing Report:— Of 745 Members that form the Conven- tion, 693 have voted for the Affirmative, 26 are absent upon public business, 26 have made different declarations — but not a single person has voted for the negative." We shall here repeat the observations of some of those who did not decide directly on the question :— M. Rouzet.—" I cannot divide my opinion: I think that Louis and his Family ought to be confined during the present war, unless some extraordinary circumstance occurs." M. WaudelincOur ( a Bishop).—" My holy functions do not permit me to pronounce in cri- minal matters." M. Lalande ( a Bishop).— I am exaCtly in the same predicament. M. Osselin.—" I declare Louis guilty ; and I beg leave to observe, that although he asserted, through the medium of his defender, that the Body Guard was only paid up to January 1792, yet they aCtually received their appointments until the middle of July in that year." M. Conte.—" I vote in the affirmative, as a Legislator— but as a Judge, I have not any thing to say." M. Noel.—" I cannot vote at all, because I have lost a son, during a war that Louis has raised up against my country." MM. FauChet, Dubois, Dubain, Lariviere, and Doucee said, they were intimately convinced of the guilt of Louis Capet; but they could not vote, on account of the manner in which the questions had been put. M. Chambon.—" Louis is guilty— but this vote is conditional; that is, if you appeal to the People." MM. Girouet and Baraillon begged leave to be excused from giving their opinion. M. EGALITE—." Louis CAPET is GUILTY!" The President, at the close of the Nominal Appeal, arose, and, taking off his hat, spoke as follows: " I hereby declare, that the National Con- vention has found Louis Capet guilty of a Conspiracy against the Liberty of the Nation, and the safety of the State." A Secretary now read the second question : — Shall the Decree relative to the fate of Louis Capet be submitted to the judgment of the People ?" During the second Nominal Appeal, all the Members in succession ascended the Tribune. Those who voted for the Appeal to the People, declared themselves swayed by a respeCt to the Nation. The advocates for a final sentence de- clared themselves swayed by the dread of tu- mulis in the Primary Assemblies. M. Roberfpierre.—" I vote that the sentence of Louis Capet be decided by the Convention." M. Manuel.—" I see Legislators, but no Judges in this Assembly. I appeal to the peo- ple. I was shocked to observe Philip Egalite, a relation of the late King, deciding upon his guilt." Philip Egalite.—" I thought of my duty, and of nothing else, when I declared Louis Capet' guilty." I now vote that his judgment be not submitted to the people." M. Camel Desmoulins.—" The King of P. was formerly purchased by Russia ; and I am afraid that some persons here are purchased by England and Holland. I vote for a final deci- sion." This member was instantly called to order, and censured by the President. M. Dufraulx.—" An appeal to the people." ( This Member having been insulted by a stran- ger on going out, the latter was instantly ar- rested.) M. Pons.—" I have altered my opinion— I now vote against the appeal." ' M. Barbaroux.—" I also wish the Appeal to the people, and that because it has been re- pulsed by Philip d'Orleans. I vote for this also, because I dread lest an usurper should suc- ceed a tyrant." M. Chambon.—" I appeal to the people, be - cause I behold a powerful faction, in the midst of whom is Philip d'Orleans. The President having examined the Register, the result of the scrutiny was proclaimed as follows : For an Appeal to the People 283 Against an Appeal to the People 480 Majority for final judgment 197 The President, taking off his hat, then said : " I do hereby declare, in the name of the Convention, that the decree concerning the punishment of Louis CAPET shall not be- referred to the sanCtion of the people. ' The last Question was to have been decided on Wednesday. When M. Egalite mounted the Tribune, in the National Convention, to declare Louis Capet guilty, an indignant murmur was heard from great part of the Assembly It seems it was the general opinion, that there would have been an appeal to the people, but for the proceedings of the inhabitants of the Faux- bourgs of St. Marceau and St. Antoine, the 14th of July men, who went in a body on Tuesday to the arsenal, and took possession of the ammunition there, whilst others proceeded to St. Denis, and seized on all the field- pieces, the whole of which, consisting of between 60 and 70, excepting five, which broke down on the way, they conducted to the head- quarters of the Sans- culottes. The Executive Govern- ment, however, took every measure to counter- act their designs; and in case they make any attempt on the Temple, or elsewhere, they will be resisted by the Marseillois, and the other Fe- derates now in Paris; though we learn that no bad consequences had resulted from ths proceed- ings of Tuesday. BY THE LAST DUTCH MAIL. They write from Brussels, that the affairs of that province remain still in the same inactive state, to the great detriment of the public wel- fare. The French, they say, are making every preparation to open the campaign as early as possible ; large magazines are forming in West Flanders of provisions and ammunition, and they expect a reinforcement of 15,000 men. General Beaulieu has received a reinforcement from Prince Hohenlohe, and now seems to have no apprehension of being attacked by the French ; and the Austrians have raken up their winter- quarters further in Luxemburgh. The letters from Mentz express great ness respeCting the fate of that city as pendent of the Prussian and Hessian army, ' has already forced, Custine, to fall under the Fausbourgs of Cassel, ^ jt, trian, and Saxon troops, are assembling sides against it .: Mentz. as incorporated have published there the decree Convention, of the, annihilates not • x-' tm 68 L L O Y D ' S E V E N I N G - P O S T , And Jan. 18— 21 AUTHENTIC PORT- NEWS.

Several reports were yesterday in circulation, that the French King had been beheaded , but these are refused by intelligence received this day, That, the 3d Question having been dis- cussed in the National Convention on Wednes- day, it was determined, by a Majority of 60, to spare his Majesty's. life. The consultation on Friday, at the Minister's house in Downing- street,. with the Attorney and Solicitor- General, and Mess. Bearcroft and Mit- ford, was on the subject of the Alien Bill, which, it is said, in some respects does not an- swer the expectation of Ministry in its opera- tion The last advices from France comprehend the answers of Le B* nn, the French Minister for Foreign Affairs, to the letter of Lord Gren- ville to M. de Chauvelin ; and likewise a letter from the latter to Lord Grenville, on the sub- ject of the Alien bill both which we are obliged to postpone, The French shew no disposition whatever to recede from the wild principles of universal conquest which they have laid down to them- and they again threaten us with an to the People of England— in what view, difficult to conjecture. There is no prospect of conciliation, and an immediate declaration of war seems certain, our Court being resolved not to acknowledge or receive M. de Chauvelin, or any other person, as the accredited Minister of the new Republic, the Government of which, according to its own appellation, is merely provisional. A letter from Leyden says, " On the 9th inst. Sir James Murray passed by this place in great haste for Frankfort, to communicate, it is supposed, to his Prussian Majesty, the last an- swer made by the British Cabinet to M. de Chauvelin : an answer which, without acknow- ledging the present Government of France, makes known the point of view in which Eng- land regards the occupation of the Austrian Low Countries, the opening of the Scheldt, and the other projects which they announce as the result of those events ; and to declare to him at the same time the conditions relative to those affairs, on which depend war or peace. Of the fleet which sailed under the Hon. Commodore Murray to the Scheldt, the Assis- tance, Capt. Maude, with the Commodore, and the Iphigenia, Capt. Sinclair, arrived in the Downs on Friday afternoon, having left Flush- ing the evening before. The ships remaining there are the Syren, Capt. Manley ; the Rattle- snake, Capt. Mouat; and the Bonetta, Capt. Moore. The Assistance is sailed for Spithead, with the Circe frigate, Capt. Gardner. According to advices from Middleburgh, the French ships remained in the port of Antwerp on the 8th inst. and will probably winter there. The last dispatches from Madrid are said to be of great consequence, but they have not yet transpired. When the courier arrived at Lisbon, the packet was dispatched instantaneously, and time was not even given to the Merchants to prepare and send their letters; nor had Gentle- men, who were desirous of coming to England as passengers, time to get on board. Extract of a Letter from Cagliari, in Sardinia, Nov. 30. " In consequence of the rumour which pre- vailed, purporting that the French designed to invade this Island, our Government has made vigorous preparations for a defence. The Mi- litia are embodied, not only in the capital, but alfo throughout the island. This corps, with the regular troops, will form a body of 100,000 men, ready to repel any foreign attack. The Sardinians are attached to their present Sove- reign, and are by no means advocates for a Revolution. In consequence, however, of the present circumstances, trade suffers, as very few vessels arrive during this uncertain state of af- fairs." Friday 46 sailors entered into his Majesty's Service at Guildhall. On Wednesday, at the Quarter Sessions at Newcastle, a bill of indictment was found by the Grand Jury, against a Gentleman of that place, for having interlined with a pencil, in the declaration of the merchants at the Merchant- Taylors Hall stuck up in a bookseller's shop, certain words, which appeared to transfer to the Ministry the stigma levelled at the People. — He has consequently given bail to take his trial for the offence. The same day two men, lately apprehended at the same place, for speaking in disrespectful terms of his Majesty, were sentenced to be con- fined in Newgate ; one for a month, the other for a fortnight. Tranquillity has been re- established in the northern parts of Ireland. Lord Rawdon, in a letter to a gentleman in Yorkshire, says, " There is reason to hope a Bill will pass this session, liberating such Insol- vent Debtors as may not be proved guilty of fraud in the contraction of their debts.— The Bill will further regulate the practice of arrests and imprisonment for debt in future; a reform, in which the great Law Officers at length con- cur, through conviction of its justice." The Earl of Ludlow has been pleased to order money to be distributed among the poor of Great Staughton, in Huntingdonshire; likewise two bullocks, weighing upwards of 90 stone, and 700lb. weight of bread, made into loaves,, in proportion, to the different families. His Lordship also, in addition to this well- timed benevolence, has ordered all his labourers to. have an advance of 1s. per week to their wages. On Friday the Coroner held an inquest on. the bodies of Mr. Sylva, and Mary Williams, his servant. whose murder was mentioned in our last. The Jury's verdict was, " Wilful; murder by persons unknown." On Friday evening Mr. Mendez, a nephew, of Mr. Sylva, was taken up on suspicion, and examined at Bow street on Saturday. He proved by most respectable evidence, that he was at. home at the time the murder was committed,, and he was consequently discharged- theatrical entertainments,. This Evening.
