Public Advertiser for Shropshire, Part of the Principality of Wales, and the Counties of Chester, Stafford, Worcester, and Hereford ——————— — _ — - [ Vol, XXVI. No. 1312.] PRICE SIX- PENCE.] Sunday Nights Mail. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Admiralty- Office, July 22, 1797. Extract of a Letter from Captain Ricketts, to Sir Peter Parker, Commander of the Ships on the Jamaica Station. La Magicienne, in Carcasse Bay, St. Domingo, April 24, 1797- SIR, IBEG leave to inform you, that on Sunday the 23d instant, when doubling Cape Tibe- roon, in company with the Regulus and For- tune Schooner, we discovered a six gun privateer sloop and four schooners at anchor in this bay, which convinced me that the port of Irois was attacked: soon after the alarm gUn was fired at the fort. As no time was to be lost in endeavour- ing to counteract the views of the enemy, we stood in and anchored, when we commenced a heavy cannonade, and had the good fortune, in a short time, to drive them into the mountains; their field pieces, ammunition, provisions, and vessels laden with necessaries for carrying on the siege fell into our hands. The good conduct of every officer and sailor belonging to our little squadron, manifested it- self upon this occasion,, as well as upon many others, since I have had the honour to command it. I have to regret the loss of four men killed, Mr. Morgan, master's mate, and ten men wound- ed ( though not mortally), who were in the Ma- gicienne's boat when endeavouring to tow out the privateer. I have the honour to be, & c. W. H. RICKETTS. Saturday Night's Mail GRAND FLEET.

YESTERDAY His Majesty went in state to the House of Peers, and be- Black Rod was sent to require the im- mediate attendance of the House of ^ A- ^- atfiiu^ w Commons The Speaker, attended by a number of Members, ap- peared at the Bar, when the Royal Assent was given to the Stamp Deeds Bill; East India Ju- dicature, Provisional Cavalry Cloathing Bill 5 Additional Horse Duty Bills the Bill to grant pardons to persons convicted by Courts Martial; the Weights and Balance Bill 5 and to several Private Bills. The Speaker made a suitable speech, after which his Majesty delivered the fol- lowing most gracious speech— " My Lords, and Gentlemen, _ " I cannot put an end to this Session of Par- liament without returning you my most sincere and cordial thanks for the assiduity and zeal with which you have applied yourselves to the impor- tant objects which have required your attention, and for the wisdom and firmness which you have manifested in the new and difficult emergencies for which you have had to provide. " I must particularly express the just sense I entertain of the salutary and effectual provisions which you made for strengthening the means of National Defence, and the measures adopted for obviating the inconveniences which were to be apprehended to Credit from the temporary suf- pension of Payments in Cash by the Bank 5 as well as of the promptitude, vigour, and effect, with which you afforded me your assistance and support in suppressing the daring and treasonable Mutiny which broke out in a part of my Fleet, and in counteracting so dangerous and pernicious an example. " I have the satisfaction to acquaint you, that since the Accession of the present Emperor of Russia, the Commercial Engagements between the two Countries have been renewed in such a manner as will, I doubt not, materially conduce to their mutual interests. " Gentlemen of the House of Commons, " I must return you my particular thanks for the liberal and extensive provision which you have T , exigencies of the Public Service"; and, while I lament the necessity which increased them to so large an amount, it is a con- solation to me to observe the attention you em- ployed in distributing the heavy burdens which they occasioned, in such a manner as to render their pressure as little severe as possible to thy People. " My Lords and Gentlemen, " The issue of the important Negociation in which I am engaged is yet uncertain : but, what- ever may be the event, nothing will have been wanting, on my part, to bring it to a successful termination, on such conditions as may be con- sistent with the security, honour, and essential in- terests of my dominions. In the mean time, nothing can so much tend to forward the attain- ment of Peace as the continuance of that zeal, exertion, and public spirit, of Which my subjects have given such conspicuous and honourable proofs, and of which the perseverance and firm- ness of Parliment has afforded them so striking an example. Then the Lord Chancellor, by his Majesty's command, said— " My Lords and Gentlemen, " It is his Majesty's Royal Will and Pleasure, that this Parliament be prorogued to Thursday, the 5th Day of October next, to be then here holden ; and this Parliament is accordingly pro- rogued to Thursday, the 5th Day of October next. ADMIRAL DUNCAN's FLEET. Of the Texel, July 15, 1797. " We are still stationed off here, about five leagues distant from the enemy's fleet, which, according to the observation of an officer who was sent in last Wednesday with a flag of Truce, consists of five ships of 74 guns eight of 64 — six of jo— four of 40— eight frigates— two sloops — and four brigs. Our whole fleet consists of nine sail of the line, and two frigates; and though so far inferior in metal to the enemy, we should rejoice at an opportunity to give them battle. " The circumstance which gave rise to the flag of truce being sent into the Texel, was in consequence of the Dutch having captured one of our fishing vessels, which was afterwards recap- tured by the Ganges. Admiral Duncan wrote word that our fleet would retaliate on their vessels, if this was encouraged. A very civil answer was brought back by a Captain of one of the Dutch 64' s, who, on coming on board Admiral Duncan's ship, was asked whether he served un- der the Dutch or French flag. ( There is a French flag flying in the Texel, said to be Admiral Ri- chery's). He seemed much hurt, and swore he never would fight under the French. He was very curious to learn the names of the different ships, and Admiral Duncan lent him his glass to make what observations he pleased. He called the Prince man of war a huge ship, and took particular notice of the Sans Pareil and Caesar. " The Dutch ships appear to prepare for sailing, but they have done the same on many occasions. We do not think them in earnest, as all their transports still lie in the inner bason, where there are also 18 Indiamen. We do not credit their having many troops yet on board, though the number in the neighbourhood is said to amount to 75,000 men. " Admiral Duncan this day formed his Fleet in a line of battle, in order to be prepared, should the enemy attempt to come out," A short Account of the Nature, Properties, Efficacy, and Use of Johnstone's Royal Patent Jessamine Soap, Naples Cream, and Asiatic Balsam. Sold by the Printer hereof. By His Majesty's Royal letters Patent, GRANted to ANDREW JOHNSTONE, Perfumer to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, F0R His Discovery of the Method of Manufacturing the above favourite Articles. THE Complexion is undoubtedly the greatest beauty of the human frame, without that's in the extreme of perfection, the brilliant eye, the rosiate cheek, the ivory teeth, and every other embellishment appertaining the countenance, fail of producing that desirable which, in concert with the former, always excite unbounded admira- tion. And, as nothing has yet been discoVered that is so certain of removing all impurities and imper- fections of the skin as the following innocent and effectual articles, who can w.,.," a at their becoming the constant toilet companions of ladies, who are anxious to give to their complexion that inestimable charm. Every bosom devoid of adamant, must pal- pitate at their approach; every mind diverted of stoichism, acknowledge their power, and envy itself, sicken at beholding the supremacy of beauty, which must ever be the consequence, when the following most excellent and successful articles, sanctioned by His Majesty's Royal Letters Patent, have been em- ployed to enlarge its empire. - The alkaline salt, so obnoxious in all hard soaps, and so injurious to the skin, has actuated the Patentee AnDREW JOHNSTONE, Perfumer to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales Bell Alley, Lombard. Street, London, to particularly devote his time in searching for articles which would, from their inno- cence and efficacy, be found deserving of general adoption.— This point determined on, the whole vegetable creation presented itself to his view such at the balsamic herb, their attention,— The Royal Jessamine Soap, for which the inventor has obtained His Majesty s Royal Letters Patent, as a protection to the public to guard them against imposition is, by a judicious, matchless, and delicate process in the art of chimistry, rendered the most invaluable article in the world, for washing, cleaning, shaving, clearing, and effectually preserv- ing the skin from all protuberances arising from the improper application of other soaps. The Asiatic Balsam for the Hair is combined partly from the animal, and partly from the vegeta- ble, world, and never fails of restoring hair upon bald parts, and also to thicken and strengthen hair, and to prevent its failing off whether naturally thin, decayed by age, or loosened through indisposition. LADIES who are desirous of having a soft, white, and delicate complexion, may depend that no disco- very is so sovereignly efficacious ( or the purpose, as the Royal Patent Jessamine Soap and Naples Cream, which removes that sallow hue that occurs from frequent bathing or injudicious use of destructive paint, and are particularly serviceable at this season of the year — They are the only articles yet discovered for improving the face, neck, hands, arms, & c. by beautifying them to the utmost degree of perfection, and absolutely prevents their ever chapping. Naples having long been celebrated for producing the most certain means for the preservation of beauty, the discoverer and preparer of this celebrated cosme- tic, the Naples Cream, thinks himself justifiable in giving it an appellation analogous to its virtue. The Naples Cream produces the happiest conse- quences by constant use. The face and neck acquire a transparent clearness, richly illustrative of feminine delicacy, while the fairness it leaves upon the com- plexion, is an acquisition of such importance, that every lady who has hitherto used it, cheerfully ac- knowledges its superior efficacy. The ladies in par- ticular will find the Naples Cream and Asiatic Bal- sam most excellent accompaniments to the Royal Patent Jessamine Soap, and in fact the best compa- nions to the toilet.

An Extract from Crutwell's Bath CHronicle Strand London Dec ' SIR, IFeel it a duty to communicate to you a short narration of my illness, and the means of my re- covery, as it may be of infinite service to invalids resort- ing to your city. I was unwell four years and upwards owing, I believe, to free living, which reduced me to a very weak state, which was considered consumptive. I took various medicines to strengthen my habit, with bathing, as directed by the faculty. I Went to different places for that purpose, but found benefit from neither. In this situation I continued hopeless of recovery. At last I resolved to visit Bath, 1 went there, and pur- chased some restorative medicines of you, which I took for a length of time without the least effect. A friend called upon me, hearing I was in your city, to whom I related my case ; he then informed me he had b en ill himself, and owed his recovery to SPILSBURY'S ANTIS- CORBUTIC DROPS, as did also several of his friends, particularly a lady who had been in a weak state for a long time. Hearing this news gave me fresh hopes. I sent to your house for a guinea bottle of the Drops, which I took as ordered, and in a short time I felt they had a great effect on me, by the appearance of eruptions with violent irritation; but, findjng my appetite, spirits, and strength increase, induced me to continue them, and in a short time I found all eruptions gone; and by the time I had taken three guinea bottles, I found myself quite restored. I sent my Case to the Proprietor some short time since; its not appearing in print induced me to forward it to you to advertise it in your paper as many times as you tan for the inclosed [ guinea], which will oblige Your humble servant, P. F. M. The Drops are sold at the Dispensary in Soho Square, London; by T. Wood, Shrewsbury, and all the general Venders of Patent Medicines in Town and Country.

Yesterday arrived the Hamburgh Mail, due last Wednefday, and also Mr. Mason, a King's Messenger, from Petersburgh. The Mail brings no news of any considerable importance. It appears by a letter from the Hague of the nth, that intelligence of the sailing of the Texel Fleet was daily expected. Early this morning, arrived Paris Journals of the 18th and 19th inst. brought to Dover by a Swedish packet with passengerS. They contain the following intelligence respecting the change which has taken place in the French Ministry. Talleyrand Perigord replaces Charles Lacroix in the Department for Foreign Affairs. Gen. Hoche succeeds to Petier in the War De- partment. Pleville le Pelley, one of the Plenipotentiaries at Lisle, fucceeds to Truguet in the Department of Marine. Francois de Neuschat eau, Commissioner of the Directory at the central administration of Vosges, replaces Bedezech in the Home- department; and Lenoir Laroche, Ex- Member of the constitu- ent Assembly, suCceeds to Colchin in the Depart, ment of Police. Merlin of Douai, Minister of Justice, and Ra- mel, Minister of Finances, remain in place. " We are assured," says the Journal La Quoti- dienne, " that Barthelemy and Carnot strenuously opposed this arrangement. Lenoir, Laroche, and Talleyrand Perigord are Delegates of the Club de Salm it is the Club of Salm that has made all the nominations." Charles Lacroix is to be sent to Lisle, to replace Pleville Pelley. Lenoir and Talleyrand Peri- gord were sworn into their new offices on the morning of the 18th. Carnot and Barthelemy have entered a protest upon the register of the deliberations of the Direc- tory, against the resolutions, by which Cochon, Petier, and Benezech have been dismissed. A proclamation has been issued at the Haven- nah, which excludes all neutral bottoms bound last from England from touching at that port; which has subjected them t0 much inconvenience, as many ships were consigned to the Havannah merchants. The mail arrived yesterday from Hamburgh, brings the important intelligence of the Prussian troops having entered Nuremberg by force, a pro- ceeding which more than any other, threatens to produce a rupture between the Cabinets of Berlin and Vienna. CAPTURE OF THE SPANISH FLOTILLA. The capture of almost the whole of the home ward bound Spanish Flotilla frain Carthagena, laden with valuable property, and having two millions of Dollars on board, by two British ships of war is reported with confidence. Not being able to man all the prizes, the captors were, it is said, under the necessity of suffering some of them to depart, having previously removed their trea- sures to the other ships. No advice of this happy event has yet been received at the Admiralty, but the rumour receives credit and confirmation from the following letter from New- York, dated the 11th ult. " Captain Charles White, late of the brig Trio, which was condemned at Havannah, arri- ved yesterday from that place in the Flora : he informs us, that one of the Carthagena fleet, ( a light ship) had arrived there before he sailed, with the news that all the remaining ships were taken by an English two decker and A frigate, they having on board two millions of dollars, besides other valuable property, to a very large amount. A full and satisfactory confirmation of the above is also received by Captain White, of the Suffolk. who, in lat. 28 between the Florida shore and Bahama Banks, fell in with three Spanish frigates and a four- gun schooner, which had been sent out for the purpose of picking up the scattered vessels of the above convoy, as the English, not being able to man the whole, had stripped several of the ships of their most valuable articles, and then let them go. This was communicated to Captain White by the Spanish Commodore." BRILLIANT ENGAGEMENT. About the latter end of August last, a very bril- liant Action took place off Basseterre, Guada- loupe, close in with the batteries, between the Mermaid Frigate, Captain Otway, and the French frigate Vengeance, of 56 guns ; Admiral Pole having received information that a strange frigate was off Basseterre, made signal ^^^ the Mermaid on coming up, made which she not answering, Captain Otway concluded her an enemy, and prepared for action. In a short time the action commenced, and lasted for upwards of half an hour, decidely in favour of the Mermaidj when the Vengeance was obliged to be towed for shelter under the guns of Basseterre the Mermaid pursuing her until near 500 shot passed through her rigging and over her. Victor Hugues, who witnessed the engagement, sent his Aid- de- camp on board the Vengeance, ordering her to go out " to sink or bring in that corvette." He accord- ingly re- enforced her with three boats full of men, the Mermaid all the while lying to with her top- sails to the mast, beyond the reach of the bat teries. The British seamen rejoiced at the sight of her again coming out, thinking, beyond a doubt, something decisive would follow, and cheered them as they came up but, from the superiority of the British fire and discipline, ( he was glad to seek shelter again under the guns of the fort. During the whole of the contest, Ma- jor Christmas of the 18th dragoons, with several officers and men, prisoners at Guadaloupe, were spectators, and did not cease cheering the Mer- maid, till forced to their prisons by the bayonet. The Vengeance by the report of Victor Hugues, had 12 killed and 16 wounded. F R I D A Y, July 28, 1797. Tuesday Night's Mail. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. FROM THE BRUSSELS PAPERS. Rome, June THE audacity of the Insurgents of the Marche of Ancona, whose numbers are daily augmenting ;, the accounts which are said to be received of the advantag- es they obtain over the troops of the Pope; in fine, the thickness of the veil which con- ceals from every eye the politics of Buona- parte. all these causes conspire to keep our government in the greatest perplexity. The helm of affairs has fallen from their feeble hands, and is grasped by the French Minister, who direCts it according to his own malig- nant disposition. He has, for example, set all the prisoners at liberty, and released se- veral Ladies of Pleasure from their impure retreat, under pretence ot their having served as models to the schools of the French Aca- demy. All these proceedings appear to meet with universal approbation. He has received, even from the Priests, testimonies of deference and affection. On Sunday last he gave a great dinner to honour the arrival of Trouve the Secretary of Legation. The Spanish Mi- nister Azara was of the party; and they formed a society of Spaniards and Neapoli- tans, Prelates and Sans- culottes. Ancona, June 21. The inhabitants of An- cona could not appear in the neighbouring towns without danger of being ill- treated, and even massacred. Nobody here doubts but the revolution was at least tacitly ap- proved by the French, notwithstanding the most solemn treaty. It is certain that they have not, though they could have, prevented ir. The possession of that port is of incal- culable advantage to the new Republic, and will necessarily draw in the Dutchy of Ur- bino. Milan, June 30. They labour with the utmost activity, at the Place de Lazaret, to erect triumphal arches, obelisks, altars, & c. for the festival of the federation on the gth of July. At this festival are expected to assist the deputies of all the free countries of Italy, not excepting the Genoese Republic. Genoa, July 3. The revolution in Genoa has had but a few days evidence, and already we have four journals, with an inundation ot flying publications and pamphlets. The pro- visional government, having no occasion for the freedom of the press to keep up the revo- lutionary spirit, are trying to deprive their enemies of that engine of agitation. A de- cree ordains, that all that is printed shall be signed. That would Certainly suffice to se- cure responsibility, and no more could they require consistently with the rigour of their principles. | place is uncertain; by some it is said, that they are to embark at Southampton for Ire- land, where a degree of uneasiness prevails, on account of the disturbanccs in the County of Tyrone ; but by others, it is with equal probability asserted, that they are intended tor Jersey, on account of the alarm felt by the inhabitants there at the preparations mak- ing in France apparently for the purpose of Invasion. The particulars of the Negociation at Lisle, whatever information Government may con- tinue to receive from time to time on the sub- ject, arc yet kept a profound secret; and we believe will remain so, till the period arrives at which it may be stated with some certainty, whether or not it is likely to come to some termination. It appears confirmed, by the arrival of the Paris Papers on Saturday, that there has been a material change in the Mististry of France. This however had not, on the 18th, been officially announced. The Paris Journals are filled with observa- tions upon this change, and its probable con- sequences ; they state generally, that Talle- rand de Perigord, who succeeds C. de la Croix, appears mostly approved; but Pleville Peley, the successor of Truget; Gen. Hoche, the successor to Petiet; F. de Neufchateau, of Bazenech ; and Lenoir la Roche, the succes- sor of Cochan,. are alike the subjects. of re- probation and praise. Three of the five are said to be hostile to this country, notwith- standing we hope that the public voice, which appears to have been in some sort obeyed in the present instance, will operate yet more powerfully to convince the rulers of France of the necessity of Peace. for one Year, ending the 5th July 1797.

Mr. Major, one of his Majesty's Messen- gers sailed from Dover for Calais on Friday evening, with dispatches for Lord Malmel- bury at LiF The Squadron under the Command of that able and active Officer, Sir John Borlase War- ren, has sent into Falmouth a large French Ship, three Brigs, and three Chasse- Marees, captured on the Coast of France, 011 their passage from Nantz to Brest, whither they were taking provision and stores for the Fleet. The same Squadron has also driven a French Frigate on the Penmarks, and burnt a Cor- vette of 12 guns, and a large vessel laden with timber. No ships in the Navy have done more service to the Country during the War than this little Flotilla,- commanded by the most able and vigilant Officers. A report prevailed yesterday at Portsmouth, of Earl St. Vincent having had an Engage- ment with the Spanish Fleet, and captured Five Sail of the Line. Letters were received from Jersey, on Sa- turday last, dated on the 16th and 17th inft. which state the island to be alarmed, from the hostile appearance of the French Coast. With their glasses they can perceive Five French Camps ; one of which is supposed to contain ten thousand Infantry, and a proportionate number of Horse, Artillery, See. The Re- gulars and the Invalids are kept to the strict- est duty, and all the male inhabitants, who are able, are obliged to perform military duty in their turn. Every landing place is well fortified and guarded; ' and the inhabitants are animated with the utmost spirit and unanimi- ty in favor of England. A considerable degree of tumult took place at Stewartstown in the County of Tyrone on the 12th inst. Some of the Orange Boys and a party of the Tyrone Yeomanry met to cele- brate the anniversary of the memorable Battle of Aughrim, by which the Papal Church in Ireland was overthrown ;— and in tbe course of their mirth took offence at seeing green rib- bands worn by the wives of some of the Kerry Militia Men. A scuffle ensued between the Orange- men and their party, and twenty of the Kerry Militia, the latter . it whom were at length forced to retire, many of them much, wounded : they returned, however, in a short time, with considerable reinforcements, but not before an application had been made by the Officers of the Tyrone Yeomanry to the Militia Officers, to retrain their men, which they said they could not do.— The Kerry men who were without ammunition, sustained two charges, in which ten of them and a Serjeant were killed, and they were at length over- powered ; 30 more were taken prisoners.. In the charges, one of the Scotch Regiment, two Yeomen, and. three of the inhabitants of Stew- artstown were killed. On Friday last a Battalion of Guards recei- ved orders, very unexpectedly, to hold them- selves in readiness to march on this day for Winchester.

DUTIES pro Anno 1796: The President of the United States of Ame- rica, with the concurrence of the Senate, has nominated and appointed Elbridge Gray, Esq; Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipo- tentiary to the French Republic, vice Judge Dana, who declined the appointment. The Governor of Villetri, in the Campagna of Rome, having received information of a conspiracy to plant the Tree of Liberty, and having gained over the majority of the citi- zens, contented himself with watching the conduCt of the conspirators. The tree was actually planted during the night; but, at the break of day, the people were completely astonished at seeing seven heads suspended on it.— The following inscription was also placed thereon : " Those who chuse may enjoy liberty and equality. Continue to plant trees, and we shall continue to crown them with your heads." Since this event, no mention whatever has been made either of liberty or equality. His Excellency Ismail Farauh Effendi, the new Turkish Ambassador to the British Court, landed at Dover on' Saturday Morning from Calais, and was received by General Hulse with military honours. After dining at the York Hotel, he set out in the evening, with his suite in three coaches and four, and five post- coaches, for Canterbury, where he slept that night, and yesterday afternoon The caval- cade arrived at Osborne's Hotel, in the Adel- phi, where his Excellency remains for the present. He was immediately visited by his prcdecessor, Yusuff Adijah Effendi, at whose house he was elegantly entertained in the e- vening.— On his departure from Dover he was saluted by a general discharge from the Castle and Fort Guns. His Grand Entry is expected to take place on Wednesday. His Excellency appears to be a much younger man than Yusuff Adijah Effendi: his dress is very superb. He is accompanied by his ne- phew, a private and public Secretary, an In- terpreter, and attended by about twenty do- mestics. A most melancholy accident happened on Sunday night, about 11 o'clock. As the three Mr. Taylors, relations of Lord Grenville, two of whom are Clerks in the Office tor Foreign Affairs, the other Aid- de- Camp to the Duke of York, were coming to town from Richmond, in a small wherry with a sail, which they had had built for their amuse- ment, the boat overset near Kew, by striking against a barge, and all three tumbled over- board. Mr. B. Taylor got on shore unhurt; Mr. Herbert Taylor was brought on shore with little signs of life, but has since recover- ed by the means recommended by the Humane Society; and Mr. W. Taylor was drowned. — The latter had lately returned with Mr. Hammond from Vienna, to whom he acted as Secretary : the night was extremely dark and tempestuous.

The storm, we learn, has been equally severe in many other places, but we have not yet heard of any parti- cular damage being done, or any lives lost. Lewes, July 24. Soon after sun- set on Sunday evening the t6th instant. the inhabitants of the Western part of this county, observed an exten- sive cloud approaching from the S W. with little wind, but flashes of lightening were very fre- quent, and the peals of thunder entremely loud, with rain falling in very heavy showers. Ti first storm had spent its force about 12 o'clock; and before one, an extensive cloud with a brisk gale had again overspread the horizon : the flash- es of lightning succeeded each other so incessant- ly that the interval seldom exceeded is or 1 se- conds of time; the brilliancy of the lightning was so great, that objects ten or twelve mites dis- tant might be seen distinctly. The obscurity of the intervening spaces, and the rain pouring down in such a continued stream, could 0nly be exceeded by a tropical tornado. At one time the flashes of lightning were incessant for above ten minutes ; during which, the thunder in awful peals, rolled around the horizon in every direc- tion.—- On Monday by noon, the levels were as completely inundated, as they generally are after twenty- four 01- thirty six hours rain in the Win- ter season. The damage we chiefly hear of >• half- made hay being carried away in great quan- tities by the stream.

On Saturday the Sessions ended at the Old Bailey, when the Recorder passed sentence of death upon the following persons, who had been capitally convicted during the session: — David Fcrrell, Thomas Gregory, Geo. Pell, John Purdie, and John Haynes, for burgla- ry ; Patrick Keogh, Henry Ives and Thos. Davies, for highway Robbery; Wm. Barker, William Greenwich, John Saunders and John Fann, for Felonies; William Humphries and Edward Burton, for privately stealing, Samuel Joseph, was sentenced to fourteen years transportation j joseph Heatley, for bigamy ; and six others; to one year's impri- sonment. in Newgate; 17 were adjudged to seven years transportation, and 9 to 6 months confinement. John Hughes, having been convicted as a rogue and vagabond, and the second time as an incorrigible rogue, and being apprehended since, having about him two loaded pistols, phosphorous matches, picklock keys, and an iron Crow, was tried under the Act which subjects the offender to transportation. His conviction, identity, and apprehension, be- tween one and two in the morning of the 30th of May, with the articles in the indictment in his pockets, being proved, he was found guilty. THE preserver and restorer of health to the weak, the sickly, and infirm, is that truly valuable medicine, the Cordial Balm of Gilead. Its warm and renovating quality indisputably renders it the the best medicine for relaxations, debility, lassitudc, tremors, sinking of the spirits, and all those nervous af- fections that harrass and oppress the weak, the sedentary, and delicate, or those who have been deluded into a secret vice j for in all these cases, it is calculated to warm and steady the cold tremulous nerves, to sheath and invigorate the muscular system, to animate the spirits and renovate the whole man ; whereby the chill, watery fluids become rich and balsamic, and the circulation resumes its health- ful ftate. To THE PUBLIC, Doctor Solomon would by no means mislead mankind in things relating to their health, or offer any thing which would be the least deceptious on that head. " He who can give the slightest pain to a fellow creature, or procure advantage to himself by the sufferings of another, is an animal uworthy of existence Doctor Solomon has ever devoted to the public, his best and most faithful services; through- out his whole life 1 even from his childhood) he never felt any passion so predominant, any satisfaction so great, as in alleviating the miseries and increasing the happiness of mankind; all other pleasures are nugotary and unworthy pursuit, " human is burthened with innumerable evils, every man should lend a hand. to lessen the dreadful aggre- gate." Doctor Solomon observes with concern, that his ad- vertisements and publications are daily copied by those who are not able t0 write for themselves, with a view of rising in the estimation of the public, and recommend- ing their own medicines, Sec. in place of the CORDIAL BALM of GILEAD and the Guide TO HEALTH : But many years extensive practice, great labour and intense application, has enabled Doctor Solomon to obtain that confidence with the public, which it is his ambition to preserve through life he rests his success solely on the merits of his own remedies, and peculiar mode of practice, and wishes by no means to deprive any gentleman of the reward due to his merit, provided he builds upon his own foundation; but he leaves them to descriminate between the regular practitioner and illiterate pretenders, who attempt to ascend the pinnacle of same by climbing the tower which he has erected.

LONDON, Tuesday, July 55. Yesterday were received American papers to the 18th of June. Great alarms are entertained there respecting a French invasion. The debates of Congress have been wholly upon the means of defence. On the loth ult it was resolved to have io, ooo militia in readiness. Two French Commissioners are arrived at Hamburgh from Paris ; but the object of their mission is not yet known. The report that the French meditate an attack upon Hanover, is contradicted by the Ratisbon Gazette. The Russian Cabinet has ordered its Ministers at Foreign Courts to make six declarations re- specting the unhappy Poland, and one of which contains the following article: " If from motives of hatred, on account of this treaty of partition and its results, one of the three High Contracting Parties should be attack ed by any foreign power, the two others promise to join and defend him with all their might and power against such attack." Yesterday a Special Court of Directors was held at the India House, for the purpose of read- ing the various dispatches received from St. He- lena and China, on Sunday last. The Exeter, Earl Howe, Bombay Castle, and Brunswick, also the Indispensible and Prince of Wales, extra ships, left China the ill of January last; and on the id, passing Macoa Roads, saw his Majesty's ship SufFolk lying there, with Ad- miral Rainier, who convoyed them as far as Atchien Head, and then proceeded on his way to Madras. They arrived at the Cape of Good Hope on the 3d of April, and sailed from thence on the 15th; under convoy of his Majesty's ship Ruby. The Cuffnels was the only ship remaining at China, where the Company's Super Cargoes were in good health. The passengers are, in the Earl Howe, Lieu- tenants Staines and Peacocke. In the Exeter, Mrs. Counsil; and in the Brunswick, Major Willock.

The Spaniards have lately built a considerable chain of barracks within their works and are daily pitching tents: so far as the eye may be allowed to judge, there are now within their lines accommodations for about 10,000 men. A general bustle seems to be amongst them, and the ground is covered with camp equipage. Troops from the Interior are daily marching in, and report fays, that a large body from the Gal- lick Italian army is on its march to join the same point. Our garrison is very healthy and in good spirits, well prepared to stand an attack. The troops from Elba are arrived here. Our Bay is so full of merchantmen homeward and out- ward- bound, that the outermost vessels are ccarce- ly within the protection of the guns of the fort- ress; the Southampton frigate is, however, about to take some of them off. COUNTY NEWS. ThUNdeR STORM. Newcastle, July Oil Sunday evening last, between five and six o'clock, a most tremendous storm of thunder and lightening came on at Tin- month and Whitley, which was felt all along the North coast. The lightening entered the stable door occupied by the East and West Lothian Ca- valry, encamped on Whitley Links, and instan- taneously killed two horses : three others were much burnt, two of which are since dead : the remainder of the horses were turned out of the stable as soon as possible, and ran off in all direc- tions, being raised and terrified by the storm. Upwards of 60 of them reached this town be- tween seven and eight o'clock, where they were secured, and the next day conducted back so the camp by the men who had followed, but were unable to stop them. Part of the stable and for- age were consumed, but fortunately none of the A BURGLARY.

Extract of a Letter from an Officer on board La Pomone, dated Hodierne Bay, July 17. A T day light this morning we fell in with a convoy of 16 sail of French vessels; they were near the J. - r- j but we were enabled to capture eight, viz. one ship,. three- brigs, and four chassc marees, laden with timber for ship- building, brandy, wine, Sec. Burnt a very large ship mast, and then sent the Anson and Sylph to batter them, laden with timber, which had run ashore; ran the frigate, gun boat, and brig, on shore with the loss of their cargoes, which was done so completely, that it is imagined they can never go to sea again. LONDON, Wednesday, July 16. No Messenger arrived from Lord Malmesbury, nor any Paris Papers received this day. Yesterday morning Four Frenchmen arrived at the Secretary of State's Office, from Paris, with a Letter addressed to Lord Grenville, which they would not deliver to any othet person than his Lordship. It is said that it related to Sir Sidney Smith. In addition to the accounts from the East- In- dies, inserted in the preceding page, we have re- ceived the following : The Island of St. Helena sustained material damage from a most uncommon and extraordi- nary fall of rain on the 25th of April, which caused the largest and most awful floods ever remembered.

This young man had been some months in Shrewsbury, at school, and bore an extreme good character. A few days ago, as the wife of Mr. Boulkley, baker, of Aston, near Whitchurch, was taking some cloaths off a hedge, she fell down by over reaching herself, and was killed on the spot. The same evening Mr. Weston, a wealthy farmer and maltster, of Whixall, fell from his horse, and died on the road between Whitchurch and Wem; he was a man of unblemished cha- racter. On Friday morning last, a young woman was found drowned in a pit, between Malpas and Whitchurch. She proved to be one who had eloped from Whitchurch House of Industry ten days before, and is supposed to have been in tbe water most of that time. Her name is Margaret Lewis. On Saturday last one Thomas Sheppard, a man near So years of age, fell from the top of a hay- stack, at Whitchurch, by which accident he broke his thigh, put out his shoulder, and was otherwise so terribly bruised that there is very little hopes of his recovery. On Tuesday last was found droWned in a pit at the back of their own house, the wife of Mr. Isaac Bickley, of Whitchurch ; at ten o'clock the preceeding night she undressed herself as if going to bed, laid down a young child which sucked on her breast, slipped out undiscovered and threw herself into the pit, where she was found next morning about three o'clock, a corpse. She has left a disconsolate husband and three small chil- dren. She had some time back been disordered in Her head. Monday last William Tucker, of Siston, was drowned near the Locks at Keynsham, whither he had went angling.— It is supposed that his Foot must have slipped in the act of drawing out a fish, which was found hooked, together with the rod and line upon the bank. A faithful dog that ac- companied him, would not leave the place, but kept continually howling, which led to the dis- covery. Such was the violence of the storm on Sunday the 16th inst. at Oxford, that the mail and other coaches were detained for a considerable time, the utmost exertions of the drivers not being able to overcome the terror of the horses; and many of them when they did proceed, were led for several miles before they could go on. * On Thursday se'nnight, as three colliers were digging for coals in the Forest of Dean, the mouth of the pit fell in, and they remained submersed till Saturday evening, when they were providen- tially dug out without hurt, notwithstanding a huge piece of rock which fell in with the rubbish, was so large that it was obliged to be blown to pieces with gunpowder, before they could dig in search of the men. Wednesday a boy about five years old, at Uf- ford, was found dead under a hovel. It appears the poor child had been amusing himself in a swing, the rope of which twisted round his neck, and strangled him. On Friday last as John Saunders a lad about I years old, at Dorchester, was putting his hand into a bird's nest, in a furze bush, a viper bit his finger, the venom of which ran with much rapidity up his arm and into his breast, but by the appli- cation of oils, it was checked, and the mortifica- tion prevented.

The Insolvent Act, which received the Royal Assent by commission, on Wednesday, extends to all persons whose debts on the first of January 1797, did not in the whole, amount to a larger sum than one thousand two hundred pounds.— No prisoner to be discharged whole- debts were incurred since the first of January 1797.— Nor any attorney or solicitor,. or servant or agent, who has embezzled, concealed, or converted to his own use, money, goods, or effects, which has been intrusted to his care. A letter from a son of Mr, Leech, of this town, on board a ship, one of the Earl of St. Vincent's fleet, to his father, dated Cadiz Bay, June 17, says, " We are now lying off Cadiz at anchor ; the fleet is about four leagues off, but Admiral Nelson's, our ship and three more, are within a league ; we do not let the smallest boat in or out of their harbour, except fishing boats. We threw some shot into a small town about seven miles from Cadiz, some time ago, and did con- siderable damage, but they have now got near twenty gun- boats, so that our boats dare not go in so near as usual. We have a flag of truce out from Cadiz almost every day with presents for Lord Jervis and our Captain. Their men of war are dropping out to the mouth of their har- bour, and we are all clear for action, expecting them out everyday. We have taken a good many prizes since we have been here ; either our sqa- dron or our boats have daily skirmishes with their gun- boats, as we chase vessels close under their batteries; they have got about 30 sail of the line ready for sea, and the people on shore say, if they do not go out and fight us they will fire upon them from the batteries, as provisions are so dear they cannot live. We have boats come out from Cadiz to the ships, with onions, cab- bages, apricots, figs, and fish ; they sell 4. cab- bages and 6 small bunches of young onions for a dollar, ( which is 4s. Sd.) soap at half a dollar peii lb. and about as much whiting as you buy for two- pence, for the same sum. " I shall now give you a more particular ac- count of our taking the Figates : On the 26th of April at nine o'clock, we saw two strange sail standing right for us, and the Orion, who was our Commodore, made the private signal to know if they were friends, but they could not answer it; so we hoisted Spanish colours to decoy them, but not knowing what to make of us, they stood away from us; the Commodore then made the signal for us and the Emerald frigate to chase them; there being but little wind we chased un- til near three o'clock before we came up with them ; they came to anchor off a small town about 4 leagues from Cadiz. Just at the mouth of the Gut of Gibraltar we came to also, within musket shot of them, and engaged them for three hours, when they both struck. They came from the Havannah ; they had the Viceroy of Peru and all his attendants on board them, and a Mr. Muire, who you may remember was sent to Botany Bay for sedition ; they were full of the richest cloath you can imagine, and a great num- ber of dollars and precious stones ; there were three gold crowns with diamonds, and an image of the King of Spain on horseback, but those with the Viceroy and all his attendants were got on shore." On Thursday the 13th inst. at the Quarter Sessions held at Mold, were convicted before Sir Thomas Hanmer, Bart. Richard Hill Waring, Esq. Hope Eyton, and Randolph Crewe, clerks, John Griffith and Thomas Griffith, labourers, in the penalty of 20I. each, for having in June last interrupted a congregation of dissenters, com. monly called Methodists, assembled near Han- mer, in a house registered, the Minister being also licensed according to law. At the general quarter sessions of the peace for Liverpool, Daniel Walton, formerly a butcher at Barnsley, in Yorkshire, was indicted for making life of wicked and seditious expressions lo thc Mid Lothian fencible cavalry, in the month of May last, for the purpose of preventing their em- barking at Liverpool for Ireland, and which had the effect of preventing many of them from so embarking.

W R. Literary Repository, For the Shrewsbury Chronicle. Ships TAKEN AND BURNT AT TOULON. AS the question on the restitution of all the ships taken at Toulon, to the French, as a fine qua non to the Treaty of Peace, will probably come into further discussion, we have thought it highly interesting to give a state ment of all the circumstances which attended the capture of those ships, and the nature of the pledges given by Lord Hood, and also by Sir Gilbert Elliot and General O'Hara to the Sections of Toulon, for their restitution on the conclusion of a Peace. The Publick will thereby learn the precise bearing of the case : Extract from Lord Hood's Dispatches, dated Victory, off the Islands of Hieres, Aug. 25 1793 PRELIMINARY DECLARATION. And whenever Peace takes place, the Fort, with all the Ships in the Harbour of Toulon, shall be restored to France, and the Stores of every kind, agreeable to the Schedule which may be delivered." To this Preliminary Declaration, the Sec- tions of Toulon made the following an- swer : " Art. VIII. When the Peace shall be re- esta- blished in France, the Ships and Forts which shall be put Into the hands of the English, shall be restored to the French Nation, in the same state they were when the Inventory was deli- vered." " It is according to this Declaration, if approved of by Lord Hood, that the Toulonese will regard themselves, with good heart and will, as be- longing to the English, and the other Powers co- alesed." To this Declaration Lord Hood returned an answer as follows: Extract from the Proclamation of the Right Hon. Lord Hood, to the Sessions of Toulon, dated on board the Victory, off Toulon, Aug. 29, 1793. " I do hereby repeat what I have already de- clared to the People of the South of France, that I take possession of Tculon, and held it in Trust only for Louis XVI. until Peace shall before established in France, which I hope will be soon." On the receipt of the news in England of the capture of Toulon, a Commission WaS ap- pointed from hence to go to Toulon. On its arrival there, the following fresh Declaration was made: Extract from ihe Declaration oj ihe King to the Inha- bitants of Toulon, read by General 0 Hara an the 20th of November, 1793. We, the undersigned Commissioners Pleni- potentiary of the King of Great Britain, do hereby publish by his orders, and in his name, the fol- lowing Declaration : " His Britannick Majesty having been informed of the circumstances under which the Town, Harbour, and Forts of Toulon, and the ships in the said harbour haVe been entrusted to Vice- Admiral Lord Hood, and of the Declaration made by his Lordship to the Inhabitants of Tou- lon, has thought fit further to declare as fol- lows : ' Monarchy shall be restored in France, and a Treaty of Peace concluded, stipulating in favour of his Majesty and his Allies the restitution of all conquests made by France during the War, and a just indemnification for the losses and expenses thereby incurred, and a proper security for the future. his Majesty will cause the Town, Forts and Harbour of Toulon, together with the Ships and Stores herein, to be restored, according to the engagement entered into- by the said Vice- Admiral " According to the official report sent home by Lord Hood of the state of the French naval forces in the evacuation of Toulon, the fol- lowing appears to be the loss sustained by the French on that occasion : — Ships which - were carried away by the British Fleet, of fitted out during our Possesion of Toulon: Guns.

REMARKS Preparatory to the ISSUE of the renewed NEGOTIATION for PEACE. THE circumstances under which the ne- gotiation for peace is now renewed, are such as seem to portend a different issue from that which we lately witnessed ; and this dif- ference calls upon us for a course of conduct, adapted to the issue which we have now in expectation If the prospect of an aggravated war required, on our part, a full display of the means we possessed for preventing or les- sening tbe calamities that necessarily attend it, the contemplation of an approaching peace, under circumstances entirely new and untried, discovcrs to us the high importance of exert- ing every faculty to secure and improve the advantages it may afford, and to repel or con- troul the inconveniencies it may very possibly cause us to encounters The union of the public force, directed by firmness, enabled us to attain the former object; the national wisdon, exerted with vigilance and fidelity, can furnish us with the only means for ac- complishing the latter. Two things that we have principally to consider are, what it is that we are desirous of acquiring by means of a peace, and how far the diplomatic arrange- ment that we call " A PEACE," is capable of procuring it ? In wishing to make a peace with France, we have no wish to assimilate Great Britain to France, nor to favor the success of any pro- ject tending to introduce that revolutionary system which our arms have so long and tri- umphantly opposed. By means of the war, we have hitherto prevented ihat assimilation ; let us consider how, when the means furnish- ed by the war shall be removed, we may still continue to guard against that effect. If a cause of such enormous magnitude as the terrible conflict that we are on the eve of terminating was alone capable of defeating that effect, and if, as soon as that cause shall be removed, the adverse cause shall be left to operate without control, it becomes a question of sound and necessary policy to inquire, what means may be substituted in order to continue that salutary resistance. For it will certainly not be denied, by the great majority of the nation, that it the corruption of the rising generation, or of the constituted system of our government, were to become the necessary consequences of peace, war, with all its at- tendant horrors, would be a far more salutarv condition: because, the issue of war affords always a chance of success ; whereas such a produce from peace would fix the certainty of ruin. If we examine the operation of the the war in respect of the point of view here presented, we shall perceive that it has been productive of two marked and unequivocal effects; first, it has operated externally as a bulwark raised along the limits of the empire, by which every means of political assimilation with France has been prevented from enter- ing ; and secondly, it has operated internally as a fortress, in which a desperate and active conspiracy of traitors has been immured, and by that mean , enabled from corresponding to any material degree with the external enemy, or of extending beyond thcir own individuals this' system of admiration. Let us suppose this bulwark dismantled, this fortress razed, the intercoursc unimpeded, the enemy free to enter, the conspirators at home free to con- verse, consult, co- operate with the revolu- tionary tribes, which no diplomatic arrange- ments whatever can possibly reach, either to extirpate or reform:— and can we dare, on this view of the case, to affirm that a peace will be the restorer of happiness to the nation ; of that only happiness to which the British people ran aspire, the safety and perpetuity of their constitution, as their only solid security for preserving life, freedom, and property ? Let it not be said, that the cessation of war will of necessity cause all our troubles to cease; that peace will replace us where peace on all former occasions has been used to place us: let us deprecate the adoption of an error so dange- rous and illusive It is impossble, without de- ferring every principle of sound reason, to ar- gue from past pacifications with France to that now before us: they differ, in every essential and constitutent principle. The kingdoms of England and of France, though founded upon bases substantially contrary to each other in their qualities, yet grew up side by side. The long process of events that modified their ab- solute characters, determined also their mutual relations; and the collision of interests, dur- ing a lapse of ages, produced a correspondence of harmony, which war might interrupt, but which the discontinuance of war, or the res- toration of peace, sufFered to return. That case is distinctly different from what is now before us. The correspondence between that ancient fabric of Government and our own has ceased, because the fabric itself has alto gether ceased to exist. With its successor, we have no relations of peace to restore. The only relations that have ever subsisted between the French Republic and the British Mon- archy, are relations not of harmony but of discord ; they have never met but as bellige- rent powers, who have never known the rela- tions of peace; their only correspondence has been as adverse parties in a war the most fierce and resolute that the world has seen, because instituted from principles the most hostile that have ever given action to political force. When this relation shall be discontiuued, it must be succeeded by a novelty, by an unproved and questionable condition, of the harmonious cha- racter of which, men will affirm little, in pro- portion to the depth of their wisdom and the solidity of their knowledge. The old relations with France cannot revive ; they were those of her monarchy, produced ( as we have said) j by experience and time! that monarchy is now destroyed, and it is succeeded by a repub- lic, in which many things are far more chang- ed than the form of the government. The distinction here made may perhaps be scouted ostensibly by the secret enemies of the state, as a mere sophism; but they know that it is, nevcrtheless, a distinction that intimately concerns our welfare: that in truth is the sophism, that would seduce us to reason of the Republic of France as of its monarchy, merely because they both have borne the name of France. The constraint produced by the war has been the great and insurmountable impe- diment to the extension of those corrosive principles in England, which have dissolved so many governments, and have so widely relaxed the moral bonds of European society. France is the exhaustless source of those prin- ciples, emitted and propelled with effervescing vigour, from her central station, in every di- rection throughout Europe. Between that England and that France, peace is to be restored, or, to speak with correctness, war is to be discontinued; for it cannot be too strong- ly incalculated, that the restoration of peace supposes peace once to have existed ; and that, by discontinuing the war, wc regain a former position ; but where peace has never existed there it cannot be restored. On discontinuing the present war, therefore, we shall have to create, and not merely to restOre, relations of peace between our new neighbour and the Constitution of England ; a work which muft suggest to the mind of even the most hasty observer, something far more arduous than the ordinary routine of diplomatic pacification. Relations of peace signify that relative position of two powers, in respect of each other, which shall enable each, without molestation from the other, to preserve, cultivate, and enjoy, whatever either nation esteems to be the means of producing its own internal social happiness. It is the business of France to concern herself with the means of procuring her social happi- ness, and it forms no part of our speculation ; but the means of establishing our ow the method by which it is to be preserved, culti- vated, and enjoyed, as it constitutes the whole of that for which life can be desired, so it forms also the most interesting object to which we can direct our contemplation. In speading collectively of the British na tion, we can have no hesitation in affirming that these means consist in the integrity and perpetuity of the British Constitution; of that fruitful and unequivocal source of all, our public happiness and prosperity. To preserve, to cultivate, and enjoy our constitution, as the cause of that public prosperity and happiness, and at the same time of our individual tran- quillity which necessarily results from thence, is therefore the object to be fought for in peace ; and in our avidity to procure a peace, it greatly behoves us to take care that we in- sure this object. Upon all former occasions this was the ne- cessary consequence of peace, because the removal of the constraint and harassment of war left each country to its own quiet and its ancient habits ; and neither country, in those times, c!^ rr,. i'rekd within itself a_ permanent caule operating externally againft the fecurity or tranquillity of the other.. But the revolu- tion of the French Government has discovered in France, the existence of such a clause as is here described a cause, which ( acting either in the government, or independently of it; is hostile and powerful in its. effects against all foreign establishments ; and to prevent the ruinous consequences of which, war, as the only possible mode of prevention we could employ, became our indispensable security.— With this cause we are to be at pcace that is to say, we are to discontinue the opposition of war. To make peace with essential hostility, appears to be almost a contradiction in nature ; assuredly then, we ought not to esteem it a transaction unattended with difficulty. In discontinuing the war, we remove a strong and massive buttress, which our ancient fabric and the modern convulsions of Europe had rendered necessary. If those convulsions appear to intermit, ( for no one is qualified to affirm that they begin really to subside) if we become dissatisfied with this rude but solid and safe support, and demand something more elegant and light, let us at least beware, that with all its beauty the substitute be still a support. That if we chuse to alter the exter- nal form, the internal principle may be pre- served. Above all things, let us not order that propitious and faithful prop to be re- moved, until whatever is to succeed it be ready to take its place; lest the failure of the edifice produce a mound of ruin, the ever- lasting monument of our weakness, our ab- jectness, and folly. As a Supplement to the preceding Remarks, we are persuaded our readers will accept with particular pleasure the following abstract from the wise and excellent Resolutions unanimous- ly agreed to at a Meeting of the Joint Vestry of the United Parishes of ST. GILES in the Fields, and ST. GEORGE, Bloomsbury, Lon- don, held the 26th of June last : " Resolved, That we are at present engaged in a war with an active and enterprising enemy, who does not conduct hostilities as formerly, by force of arms only, but by attempting to seduce the soldier and sailor from his duty, the people from their allegiance, and men of all descriptions from their love and attachment to the constitu- tion of their country. " Resolved, That there exist in this, as in every other nation of Europe, some persons so deluded as to be ready to second the views of our enemies, in disorganizing government, destroy- ing the security of property, and setting the peo- ple loose from every restraint of religion, and of law. " Refolved, That it is the duty of those en- trusted with the public safety, or who devote a large portion of their time to the public welfare, to warn their fellow- citizens of impending dan- gers, as well as to suggest the most likely means of preventing them ; conscious that mankind are not easily roused into action by the apprehension of dangers however great, when seen at a dis- tance ; whilst the dread of immediate danger too frequently counteracts the means, and lessons the fortitude necessary to resist it. " Resolved, That the prospect of an ap- proaching peace ought not to lull us into a false security, as the prospect is by no means the cer- tainty. Besides, it is evident that the best and surest way of obtaining an honourable peace, is to shew to the nations with whom we are at war, that, if we cannot obtain such, we are prepared and determined to oppose, with manly spirit, our enemies, both foreign and domestic. « • Resolved, That though we should be so fortunate as to obtain the blessing of peace, we do not consider the danger of anarchy as entirely over, especially as tbe standing force of the country must in that case be greatly reduced, and the public security depend in a greater de- gree on the well concerted exertions of indivi- duals. " Resolved, That as the benefit arising from armed associations under proper authority has already been sufficiently evinced, no man who feels for the prosperity of his country, or for the security and happiness of his family, can hesitate a moment to sacrifice so trifling a part of his time and fortune to obtain an object for which every good and brave man would lay down his life 1 1, COUNTRY NEWS. Worcester, July 19. The public curiosity in this city and neighbourhood was excited to a very considerable degree, 0n Monday, last, from the circumstance of King John's remains, which were interred in our Cathedral in the year 1216, being discovered on opening the tomb in the choir, tor the purpose of remov- ing it to a more convenient place, ( as the Cathedral is now undergoing a complete re- pair), it not being supposed to cover the body. The remains of the King were found in an open stone coffin under the tomb, but from their appearance, it is conjectured they must have been removed heretofore from some other part of the Cathedral: the body was wrapped in what seemed to be, or might be supposed to have been, a crimson damask robe, as, though so much perished by time, it seemed to indicate that colour; the cuff, visible on the left arm, which had probably held his sword, a fragment of which lay on his left thigh, and parts of the leather scabbard down the side of the left leg; the robe had been tied across the ankes, part of the knot remain- ing on that of the left; the robe pcrished and the tips of the toes visible: the right leg seemed to have been contracted, that not ly- ing so strait as the left; part of the shin bone of the right leg seen, and that of the right arm below the elbow ; the upper jaw with teeth lying near the right elbow, and the bone of the left arm out of its place and lying slant- wise on the breast ; a quantity of a kind of white paste lying in two or three lumps on and below the belly, which it may be suppo- sed had been poured into the- body on the heart and bowels being taken out; on break, ing a piece of the paste it was mixed with the skeletons of maggots or flies, of which vast quantities lay on and about the body ; and on the right cheek of the skull there was a sharp point about half an inch long, and some grey hairs appeared under part of the cap, which had fitted the head very tight, and seemed to have been buckled under the chin, parts of the straps remaining ; the robe had the appear- ance, in some parts, of having been embroide- red, particularly on the right knee; no bones of the fingers to be found ; the coffin is laid upon the same level as tbe floor of the choir, the inside being about even with the surface of the pavement. The concourse of people to view the remains of Royalty was so great, that it was impossible to admit them all; it was, however the order of the Dean and Chap- ter that as many should be admitted as could be without confusion, and the Sextons were directed to make no demand whatever from any person. The tomb was again closed up yesterday afternoon. PORT NEWS. On the 2d inst. at eight P. M. when the Providence, a Newcastle Collier of two car- riage guns, which principally belongs to Mr. William Rowe, of Newcastle, and is com- manded by Captain John Haddon, of North Shields, was in her passage down from London, she fell in with a French luggar privateer, off Osely Bay, called the Courageux, Captain Bunker, out of Dunkirk 2 days, and had taken nothing; mounting 1 carriage gun, 4 swivels, and abundance of small arms. The Provi- dence fired four muskets at him to bring him too, and after that fired one carriage gun, a four pounder, with round and grape shot, which took away his mizen, and cut the speak- ing trumpet in two in the French Captain's hand. He yet would not bring too, which caused Captain Haddon to hail him, and tell him, if he did not immediately come along side, he would fire into him, and sink him ; he still continued obstinate. Captain Haddon then loaded the same guns with round and grape shot, and fired direct into him, which shot three holes in his fore lug sail, and three holes in his hull between wind and water, and wounded three of his men, one of whom died of his Wounds. He then struck, and put out two oars and pulled along side of the Providence, and told Captain Haddon, he was a privateer from Dun- kirk— he then ordered all the warlike stores and ammunition on board the Providence, which was immediately complied with. He then permitted the Frenchman and his Mate to come on board, and the most of the crew he put 0n board of different ships which were in company. The luggar he then took in tow till the next day, when a gale of wind came on in the Deeps, which, with the damage she had received from the shot of the Providence, caused her to sink. When the Providence arrived off Robin Hoods Bay; with the rest of the ships in company, which had the pri- soners on board, the wind then blowing strong from the N. W. they put into the Bay, and landed all the prisoners except the Mate, and delivered them to proper officers to confine them. When the French Captain came on board the Providence, he politely delivered his sword and two pistols from his side, to Captain Haddon. VENEREAL COMPLAINTS.

Taylor, Surgeon, No. 9, New Bridge- street. London. Coxhow Pottery, in, the Parish of Kelloe, near Dear Sir, Durham, March iS. ABOUt 20 years ago, my fourth son james, now 31 years of age had a lump grow under the skin, on the side of his face and neck, which ap- prehending to be a wen, I an opportunity, while he was sleeping. to cut off a good lump of it with a sharp pair of scissors; it discharged blood and water with little pain : some time after this his arm and elbow became stiff and swelled, and burst into four holes about the joint, which were happily healed by excluding the air and keeping him at works but, I imagine. from not giving him proper medicines to purge off tbe humour, it appeared again some time back, in a little hard lump on his throat, which by slow degrees increased so much, as to render his swollowing any thing exceedingly difficult, and put him in danger of being suffocated this swelling at length broke in several places, yet did not relieve him, nor did the cutting it in another place, by a surgeon, do him any service, as it still continued to increase: several of the faculty were consulted, who all agreed it would prove fatal. His mother, thinking to get better advice, took him to an eminent surgeon ( at the head of a public medical institution, in a neighbouring capital town), who, on the second consultation informed her, all was in vain, the disorder would kill him, and to do any thing for it would only hasten his death. In this my child's dreadful situation, I thought it high time to apply to you, for some of your Leake's Patent Pills, ( which I understood were famous for remov- ing swellings of the glands, arising from scrofula), and advice in the case: he begun taking them in April last, according to your directions, and in a short time had the happiness to obseve the hardness and size of the swelling gradually diminish ! he was soon after able to swalloW with perfect ease, and in a few months all the sores entirely healed up firmly and soundly, the hardiness, & c. being so entirely obliterated, as not to leave the least appearance of it: in this state he has continued ever since, not- withstanding he has constantly worked with me in my pottery, without losing a day from illness, since the first fortnight of his tasting the pills, and with- stood as severe a summer as almost ever 1 remember, although in the 73d year of my age. Now, my dear Sir, I can only say you have the grateful thanks and prayers of a large family for re- storing one of their number; who, from being sunk in spirits, in flesh, in strength, and as it were already dropping into the grave, has by the aid of your me- dicine, become cheerful, lusty, strong, and looks for- ward to a succession of many healthful, happy years.
