This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

of the (irefles of the Gentlemen and

2 Ithe Beauties of all the 

drefies. Heaven keep their heads in 

goad order, I fay. 

Prom wearing no caps, they nre 
now become hooded like Hawks, en- 
wrapping their heads and faces about, 
as if they were bandaged for fra^ur- 
ed Ckslh. Can any mctaniorpholis 
be more whimlical than thi- ? 

Not even the Tartaria-. .^lurpr.tion 
in China (where there wa^ alfo much 
work about head-diefles) could ex- 
ceed it. 

Tie Frewch Night Cap. 
Our line women have, by covering 
their cheek* with this faihion, put 
their faces into eclipfe. Each lady, 
when drefled in this mode, can only 
peep under the iace border. Perhaps 
they are intended, like blinds to a 
horfe's head harnefs, to teach ladies 
to look forward. — A good hint, how- 
It hai been whifpcred, indeed, that 
tbis mode is an introduAion to po- 
peiy i it is to bring in the veil by 
and by, a fort of a trial, to fee how 
our Englifh Toads will take it. 

Some ill-natured perfons, indeed, 
go fo far as to fay, that every woman, 
who wca's thefe vifage- covers, has 
^re fomething (he (hould be a little 
alhamed'of, and therefore don't care 
to Ihow much of her face.

This is a piece of Gau7.e, Minio- 
DMt, Calgiiti, or Leiceaer Webb,

head, then croffed under the chin, 
and brought back to fallen behind.

down like a 



pair of pigeons tails. 

This falhion was copied from the 
fllk handkerchiefs, which market-wo- 
men tye over their ears, roll about 
their tKroats, and then pin up to the 
nape of their necks, 

They were fitfl wore in the Inner 
Square of Covent-gaideij market, 
among the ereen lUlls ; it was from 
^uxec iatmiuced into the outward

Square or Piazzas among the Italia 
there. 

Mrs. Jane Dougj.-.fii (of procuring 
memory) who was a very jreat mar- 
ket-v.on '.n, in her way, was the lirft 
who n-iJ^ a Scotch kwn. double 
neck iiandkcrchicf, into the mob 
abuve-mcntioned. 

t-f'.T female boarders would do as 
thi- millrcfs did, W be fure ; and after 
a little cut and contrivance, away 
they whiftcd in them to RaneUgh. 

The ladies of fa!hlon there, who 
fometiraes drefs almoll like ladies of 
the town, immediately took the hiiir. 
The falhion Itew abroad upon 'lie 
wings of whim; and as Schioppius 
ohfervcs, inllantly fprcad itfelf over 
the face of tiie laud. 

Ttt Mahy Queen of Scon Cap. 
Edged down the face with French 
beads j was very becoming to fome 
complexions; but as the cap was 
made of black gauze, and faved 
wafhing, it has too much good houfe- 
wifry in it, everto be immenfe tafle. 

Tit Fly Cap. 

This is fixed upon the forehead, 
forming the figure of an over<grown 
butterfly, refting upon its head, with 
outlirech'd wings ; 'tis much wore at 
prtfcnt, not that it either adds to the 
colour, or outlines of the face ; but aa 
thefe caps are edged with Garnets, 
Topazes, or Brilliants, they are very- 
fparkling, and a fide-box-appearance 
is not now altogether the confultadon 
of elegance, but ornament. 

Therefore, thofe ladies who make 
the mod Ihow, are looked upon to 
be the lincll women. 

It is become a very interefting dif- 
putc, amonf» the ConnoifTeurs in ge- 
neral, whether the prefent Tutbaad 
Roll, which is now wore round the 
Mecklcnbourg caps, was taken from 
the j£gyptian Fillet, the Perlian 
Tiara, or the wreath round the 
eldeft Faullina's Temples?

The Present Sta 

HOWEVER tremendoai a 
Spwnifh wir may fbDiid in the

concetre any great horrors at it, cir- 
cumftanced a* we now are. I am M 
cnot^h to have feen a Spaiulh war 
already ; and I am book-leimed enough 
to bare read of feveral ; but, upon 
nutore deliberation, I cannot at all 
think that it it big with deftrofiion to 
this nation. 

Spain, compared to what the wal 
under Philip II. it now no more than a 
pigmy to a giant. Hii revenue was 
»ery near twelve millions fterling a 
year; every ftiilling of wliich went 
through hit own hand*. Our Qyeen 
Elizabeth's revenue pofllbly might, at 
certain yean, arife to the thirty-fifth 
[art of that. He had the belt generals 
in the world. Her's were all home-bred 
true Engliib, and yet (be beat thii 
migbty Monarch even into his kennel j 
for, after the defeat of hit grand ar- 
rnada, he durft not fo much as yelp at 
an Englifl) (hip pafling by. In fhort, 
the minei of Mexico and Peru were 
even at that time dag for England ; for 
atter the Spanifli trealilre had circulated 
round half the globe, it alwayi center- 
ed here. There is, however, one part 
of Elizabeth') policy, to which I thuik 
no hlftonan hat yet attended, though 
it is by far the moft diftinguiOied part 
of her charafler. I mean the great art 
and care wilh which (he always evaded 
acknowledging any esclufive right of 
trade, which tlie Spaniards bad to their 
colonies in America, 

The manner in which the Spaniards 
acquired their poi^eiTiora there, was in 
Queen Elizabeth's time a recent faft ; 
and ihe certainly coiilidcred the pollellion 
of the Americun provinces to be a kind 
of 3 fcraniWe between the Spaniards 
and the Englilh, Firit come, firlt

had, to wi(h to be at peace with Spali^ 
yet from the lirfi to the lallday of her 
reign, (he certainly never could be 
brought explicitly to acknowledge, that 
the Spaniards had a better right than 
the Englifh bad to the provinces of 
Peni and Mexico. 

Her reofons were founded in good 
fenfe : what right li:id the Spaniards to 
thefe provinces, but force i If force 
gave tliem a right over the Americans, 
why ought it not to give the Elngtifh a 
right over the Spaniards i 

The argument, I know, may be 
turned agatnll ourfelves. Suppofmg, 
fays one, that Spain was to adopt this 
doflrine, and drive the Englilh out of 
Jamaica, Barbadoes, Pedylvania, or 
our oLher American colonies, how 
would you like that i My anfwer is, I 
(hould not like it at all ; but I know 
extremely well, that, if Spain was able 
to do it to-morrow, (he would not leave 
us 1 foot of land in America. I know 
not any pofTeflion we have there, that 
we are better entitled to tlian the log- 
wood trade in the bay of Honduras. 
We were unqueftionably poflelTcd of it, 
when the American treaty was con- 
cluded in the year 1670; and by the- 
claufe of Vti p'.£iAtiis, in that treaty, 
it w»s then confirmed to us. Nutwith-

faft, and that a remedy cannot be pro- 
vided ; yet even in ihefe circumltance* 
one might think of a way to come in

the trade in general ; fo th:il as our 
Indies yield us yearly twelve mill ions of

The new Queen brought her fitliei's

Cardinal Alberoni, who died not long

to part with bin),' and to accede to the 
Quadruple alliance, which was let on 
foot to fupply the defcfls of tlie treaty 
of Utrecht, and to fix the tranquillity 
of turope apon a more ttable balis. 

Philip V, in rcfuming the govern- 
ment, upon the demife of liis ibn, Don 
I^wis, began to meditate new and 
flrange dtJigns, or ratiicr fuch were 
infuii^d into his inind by the Queen and 
his Minifters. It is gtuerally believed,

Cardinal Alberoni, who was tlitn at

man born to make a figure in unquiet 
times, and who, as lie dcitirted the 
fervice of his country, no other Prince 
ought to have relied on.

at preli:nt Empreli and Queen of Hun-

that branch of the houfe of Auftvia, 
as liimfelf had been of the oilier wiili

To balance this Vienna alliance, 
France, the M.uitime Powers, and 
PiulTia, entered into the famous treaty 
of Hanover.

it vnt expe^cd would have determined 
■11 diAcrtnces, and put a period to the 
labour* ol' the Minilten on both fides. 
But this was To far from anrwering tho'e 
Isnguinc expeAationa. that tlie tuo 
next years were taken up in contriving 
expedients for carrying wlial w^s llipu- 
lated by that treaty into execution. 

For the Emperor'i lecurity it was be- 
fore fettled, that Svrili and not Spanilh 
troops fliould be lent iiitolta'y.to main- 
tain Don Carlo* in the countries yielittd 
to him by thefc leveral treaties. But 
thetrealyof Seville altered this method, 
and provided that Spanilh tro ps Ihuuld 
be TubllitutFjl inHead of Swifs. To 
which the Eni|<ei or, as it might be rea- 
fonably expecteil, vefuled his coiifcnt in 
the mull pofitive and direft terms. 

It vns to get over tliit difficulty with 
him, that new ncgociationi were iie- 
ceflary, and at length the thing was 
brought about -, the Infint Don Carlos 
was (cnt to Italy with Spanilh iroopj, 
and received iu quality ot heir appa- 
rent by the Grand Duke of Tufcany, 
which it was hoped would have con- 
tributed much, not only to the pacify- 
ing thefe trMbles, but fecurinK the 
peace of Europe, tor the prefent age 
at teaft. 

But, as the ablod politicion: are 
very liable to miftake, this bft ftcp 
proved the eai^fe of a war, notwith- 
fianding that the Maritime Powers bad 
wijde a new treaty with the Emperor, 
on purpo.'e to f.n-ilitate It. The Infant 
Don Carlos arrived ill Italy in vjr.and 
being in polTeilion of nil the di.'niiniwns 
to which his exj)e'taiive right had cre- 
ated fo many diipntes, his mother form-

and for enabling him to afliime and 
niaiiiiain tlie regal dignity, In order 
to Ihitr Ihe fet on tout intrigues in 
J-nuice.to engage even the pacihc Car- 
A'.ial in 3 nieaiure direftly repugnant 
to hia fyftem j and (he enjMvouied to 
engage the King of Sardinia to tacilitale

power, becanfe of hit being next in the 
iniait of that monarchy ; and he had 
ftronger reafons to diflike the mealiires 
of the Impci-ial Conrt, which in refpeA 
to him were not altogether fo juft, and 
by no means fo grateful or decent ai 
they ought tq have been, 

Thelie were the motives to a new 
confederacy, which, upon the death of 
the King ot' Poland in 1731, broke out 
into a war in Italy j and in the -year 
■ fallowing Don Carlos, or rather the 
Spanifli General, Montemar, contjuered 
tlie kingdom of Naples, where he 
fought one deciCve battle « Bitonto, 
ot which, t« perpetuate the memory of 
his viftory, he wai made Duke. ' 

As for the iQand of Sicily, the 
liabitania, though not very remarkable 
for their loyalty or fbadinefs, had long 
Ihewn an atfie£tion for the Spanilh go- 
vernment, which put Don Carlos in 
pofleDion of that country without a 
llroke. The Emperor, thouf^hehad 
no afliitance from his Allies, made a 
tolerable defence in Italy ) and the cir- 
cumftances of things inclining the Corut 
of France to a peace, while it was in 
her power to be well paid for it, Spain 
was (breed to fubmit, and by this meant 
public quiet wasreftored in 1735. 

By this peace Don Carlos remained 
King ot the Two Sicilies, and thereby 
erected a third monarchy in the Houlis 
of Bourbon ; but then he relinquKhed 
his maternal facceflion, which was (ccn- 
fidering the different conditions of the 
countries) perhaps a full equivalent for 
it. His Sardinian Majefty, who had 
hazarded much, and whole dominions 
had luftered exceflively by the war, 
gained very little, if we except his gain- 
ing fuch au experimental knowledge of 
the good faith of the Houfe of Bour- 
bon, as will fcarce allow him to truli it 
again. Fiance, who pretended to get 
nothing, got all ; for (he had Lorrain 
added to her dominions, without any 
colour of right, except the mod mglo- 
nout abandoning King Stanidaiis, chg- 
fen a lecuiid time King of Poland, could

After thit King Philip might we]] be

Adercd them in 3 true IJglit j but am- 
bition is ulually blind, and the Mut

covering the means of acquifition. 

Under the misfortunes of this war, 
and worn out with age and infirmities, 
Philip V. departed this life, on the 
19th of June, 1746, in his grand cli- 
mafteric, and in the 46th year of his 
reign. His fon Ferdinand VI, hy his 
fiill ccnfort, fuccceded him in the 32d 
year of his age, having married, Jan, 
8, 1719, the inJanla Mary M.igdalena, 
ot" Portugal, near two years older than 
himldf, by wlinm he had no ifl'ue. 
it was generally believed upon the ac- 
ceflion of this Monarch, that things 
would have taken iiitwely a new turn in 
thi Court of Spain, and his Catholic 
Majcfty. or at leaft his Minifters, 
took lome pains to keep up this opinion, 
frcm whence they reap'd very con- 
liderable advantages. The war, how- 
ever, was carrieJ on uith vigour, be- 
mt/i^ at tie uew King pubUHi'd in bit 



Tnanifcftoet, it was very eameftly re- 
commended to him by ^i> father j and 
at tlie lame time it was given out, that 
liii Catholic Nlajdly looked upon it im 
a point of policy, as well » of duty* 
to procure his brother an eftabliOunent 
in Italy ; fo that it was vety qoick^ 
difcerned, that a peace was not to be 
had without it. 

In the negotiations that were car- 
ried on ibr peace, the Court of Madrid 
relied implicitly upon that of Vertaillet. 
The Marquis de Soto Major afled aa 
the. Spanilh Plenipotentiary at Aix 1a 
Chapelle, where the feventli aiticle, 
regarding the cejiions made to the Jb- 
fant Don Philip, was indeed the moft 
important, and by very much ihe inoi: 
difpLti;d in the whole treaty ; and 
though it was not adjuftcd intirely U> 
the iatisfaftion of the iipaniUi Court, 
which prelTed for a general fettlement 
of the Duchies of Parma, Placemia, 
and Guaftalla, upon the Royal InlaU^ 
and his ilfue, without any reftrlAion^ 
yet, by the influence and flcadiiieTi of 
the French Minilliy, thofe important 
ccflions were not only procured upon aa 
good terms as could be reafcii:ibly cx- 
pedei!, confirmed by the moll authen- 
tic afts of the Enipiefs- queen and tbc 
King of Sai-dinia, but the execmim 
likewife prefled with equal vigilance 
and vigour. 

As to the article which regarded tht 
differences between this Court and tliaC 
of Great Britain, not]>ing was regulated 
thereby, except the right of the South- 
Sea Company to fmir years of thB 
Afliento treaty. By this means his 
Catholic Ma}elly was extricated out of

of a triumph over him ; and it was 
worle than da^er; to think, that Char- 
lotte ftiould be expofed to the addrefles

propofed an immediate elopement fiwra

the tafte of the Hat, the mode of the ■ 
wearer's tnind. There it the Military 
Cock, and the Mercantile Cock ; and 
while the Beaux of St. Janies't w«ar. 
their Hats under their arms, the Beaux 
of Moorfie Ids-mall wear thei:* diago- 
nally over their left or right eye. 

Sailors wear tite £des of thai HMi 
utiltormty, tacked down to the crown, 
and look as if they carried a triangular 
apple- pally upoti their hcadt. 

I hope no perlbn will tliink ui di&f-

new railed infantry wearing the button*- 
of their Hats bluff before, and the tre- 
foil white worfted fhaking ai they ficpi 
we can't help thinking of French figure" 



IcMpcghtupi their Hats fpread over 
their hca>Is like a penthoufe, and d.irkm 
the outward man, to figntfy they have 
the inward Light. 

Some wear their Hits (with the cor- 
ner that fliould come over'their fore- 
heads in a direft line) pointed into the 
air ; thofe are the Gawkiei. 

Others dont above half cover thdt 
heads, which it indeed owing to the 
Ihallowiiefs of their crowni ; but be- 
tween beaver, and eye-browi, cxpofe s 
piece of blank tbrehead, wbkb look* 
like a fandy road in a furveyoi 'i plan.— 
Indeed, people fhould hide u much of 
the face under their Hats at polTible i 
for very few tlicre are but what have 
done Ibmethii^, for which they ought 
to he out of countenance. 

I remember at a dcoll focicty efta- 
blifbed in Dublin, called the Court of 
MafTan, a f!entlen*jm was indidcd tor 
wearing hit Hiit in the court : tlie at- 
torny general moved in favour of the

Tbi Beauties of all the

fiblc ones fo few, that moft people, and 
more erpecially llrangerg, who approach- 
ed him, were very little inclined to ve- 
rin-ation, though he was never wanting 

A war, that equally endangered his 
dominions and his fafety, made it rC' 
quiute that he Diould take the field: his 
troops «ere none of the beft ; but hit 
officers were men of fpirit ajid tupe- 
ricnce, and his General a man of con- 
fummate capacity. He found it ne- 
cdTary that Iiis Piince (hould appear, 
and put himfelf at the head of his 
troops : but confidering his tcm;'er, his 
education, and the manner iii which 
he liied, he was very doubiTuI how lie 
would behave. In this he was vejy a-; 
^eably deceived. The Prince hcaid 
(be propofal without any repugnance, 
riiaimted hjs horfe with great alacrity, 
and charged at the head of his cavaliy 
*ith an intrepiiliiy, that furprifed thole 
rocl, who thought they krtew him heft ; 
and this it was that firft raifed him a 
Rputation. 

At the return of Peace, it was judg- 
ed expedient to give him, what he llill 
wanted, a wife. In this he (hared the 
Mmmon fate of Princes, who hardly 
ei-er cbufe for therofclves. Yet in the 
lotlery of marria^-e, as fome people are 
born to be liitky, he Ind the good for- 
tune t(i obtain a prize. The P: iticefi

amiable in every relpeft. Slie had a 
great de<il of wit, much prudence, with 
a fteady anda folid imdtrftandjiig. By 
hi: own free choice, and with the full 
ccnfcDt of thole molt intcrelted in his 
profiicrity, his Confort was admitted 
into the council of (late ; and this prov-

who, withthe ^iftanceof hiiMiltrefi, 
gave Che Prince the honour of conclud- 
ing his own affairs, to which in reality 
he had no great title. A du£tile tem- 
per was his greateft merit i and for fe- 
veral years it maintained tlie place of 
capacity. In this, at there is much 
truth, there is more reafon, than all 
the world imagines ; for if Rehoboam 
had been hut complaifant enough to 
liavc taken the advice of his futher's old 
ftrvants, he hsd never appeared iii 
hillory as Solomon's unwoithy fon. 

This funlhine did not always conti- 
nue 1 and her death made a difcovery, 
wliich, while flic lived, might be fuf- 
pcfled, but was never difcioled. Whe- 
ther it was a defefr in nature, produced 
by flattery, or the effcfls of feeing the 
many happy confeiiuences that attended 
the meaftires taken under the aufpiee 
of his u^me, fo it was, that from this 
period he (liewed upon particular occa- 
fions an obfUnacj' not to be overcome. 
When he took up an opinion, he was 
not to be reafoned out of it i he ihouglit 
it beneath his dignity j and from being 
politive he became pafilonate. He 
flighted arguments, for his learning had 
never reached fo high as logic ( deter-

a wet ditcli, a glacis, and a covered 
way, ftrengthened with p^Uiiartet. A

Moreover, at the condulion of the 

war, when our Fifherics may be greatly 
iiicrealed by the number of hands (hat 
will find employment therein, on being 
(likharged from the navy, confiderablc 
(juantities of Fiih will probably be ta- 
ken, more tlian what there may he a 
demind for at the retail markets ; it is 
propofed (with the aid of the Legifli- 
ture) to ere6t a building for a place of 
lodgment of Filli, brought by land- 
carriage, on a plot of ground fitaate in 
Weftrainfter, fortlw purpofe of preferv-

fent, not only to the leveral markets iit 
the liberties of Weftminfter, but alfo into 
the ne'g-hlwuring Fifti-markets, to be 
fold tlic/e, for the benefit of dealets, as 
well ss private purchafers. 

To obviate any objefllon that may 
ari!e, on a (iippolltion that the inhabi- 
tants of the towns or villages, lying 
near the fea-coaft, will fall Ihort of the 
ciiitomary quantity of fidi, with which 
t ley were ufuaily fupplied from thence, 
or the prices enhanced, by the gnat 
demand from the London market, it it 
thought proper tn remark, that the very 
reverfe, in all likehhood, will be the 
cafe; as, on account of the entourage- 
ment hereby given to tlieinduflriouE Fiflj- 
ermeji. the number of that ulefu) fet 
of people will multiply, or they will 
follow their occupation with increafed 
dilligence, and the additional quantity 
ol Fiih that will inconfequencc be caught, 
will turnilh a fiipply more than fuRicient 
for any demanik that may arife : fo that 
the families residing on and aMut the 
fta-coafts wilt be ferved, not only in the 
fame manner as ufiial, but even ingreater 
plenty, and as cheap. 

It is likewife neceflary to obrcrve, 
that no cairiages are intended to be lent 
to any place but where Fiih is plenty, 
and the price as reafonable as can be de- 
fired, confidering Ihe labours and hard- 
fliips the poor Filhermcn muft neceOari- 
ly undtrgo in the puifuit of their occa- 
patlon, and to maintain thcmfelres and

[The French reap a Angular adsan- 
U^e by fupplying their capital, and

: ii notorioui, that in time ot peace, 
there are from 3 to 400 fail of French 
idling veflels employed between Scilly

5 to 40 ton> burden, and upwards, 
csnying each from 15 to »o men, or

ber of veflelt and tonnage, gives "ij'/s

that our Filhermen, in great mealiire, 
from the infufficiency of their cnn ca-

them, as is the cafe in France, are not 
able of themfelves to build fuch large 
velfels, or provide fuch nets as are pro- 
per for putting in prafiice the like im- 
thods. Add to this, the prefent want 
of purchafers on the fea-coafts, even for

IN a pleafant valley of Mcfopofa-

lived Solyman, the fon of Ardavan the 
fege. He was early inftryfled in all the 
learning of the Eaft, but as his undcr- 
ftanding opened he grew weary of the 
labours of ftudy, and ihiriled only for 
the knowledge of mankind. With 
much importunity be pievailed on his

When be h«d i^ached the foot of Taunts, 
be was Hopped by an exclamation of 
lorrow that proceeded from an adjacent' 
wood. The pcrlbni he heard fpcaklng 
were two lovers, who had ttolen a fecret 
inierview before their final reparation. 

He beheld the lover lying in all the 
agonies of Ibrrow at the feet of lua 
weeping miftrefs. Solyman, perceiving 
his alliliancc nccciTary, rulhed into^ the 
tliicket, and raifed the unhappy lover 
from the earth. ' 

' Stranger, faid the youth, whoever 

* thou art, thine ajipearance entitles 
' thee to regard, and the compaHion 

* thou haft fhcwn me merits my confi- 
' dence. That lady, at whole feet I 
' fo lately lay infenfible, is the daughter 
' of a mercenary wretch, who hat fold 
' her to the iChan of BuUiaria, and 
' to-morrow flie is to be conveyed to 
' him without expoftulationorreprieve.* 

' What, replied Solyman, isitpoiS- 

* ble, that any thing can induce a parent 
' to make his child miferable '., I waa 
' not ignorant of thedepravi;y of man, 
' but I thought tlie affeftions of nature 
' could not have been overcome ; yet, 
' if it is lb, fly, while the moments of 
' liberty remain, and let not thofe hearts, 
' which Heaven has formed for eachn- 
' ther, be fcparatei! by man. The roof 
' of Ardavan has always been a refuge 

* to innocence in diftrefs ; I will myfelf 
■ conduft you to the valley of Irwan, 
' where my father's venerable charac- 
' tcr, and iheretired lltuation of hlsa- 
' bode, will fecure you from dcieition, 
' and I (hall rejoice to be the means of 
' delivering'j-ou frommifety.' 

This offer was too mterefting to be 
refufed, and Solyman fbewed ihem tba 
val'.ty of Irwan, and the houfc of Ar- 
davan, ' To know that you are un- 
' happy, faid he, will be a fuSicienC 
' motive tor him to receive you, and

think of nothing but Zara; without 
Zara I was miferable. A thoufand

The travelleti took leave of the hermit, 
and about the clofe of day, arrived at

hiftory had mariced out as the fceoF.i of

In this manner, gratifying tbeir cu-

they proceeded on their journey, and in

which is a point of great confcqucnce, 
Ti.; I is a blelling Icarce kncwik to any 
ulher CQimtry than this. The frontiers 
of the empire towards Ciiina are alfo 
inacccllible, as confuting of delarts Jm- 
pencirublc by armies, but which yield 
a tolerable palfage for caravans; fo that 
the RulTians may alway&reckun on tlie 
tnendlhip of the Chincfe j :md, when- 
ever they apply themiclves ferioufly 
thereto, may make lliis ftjendlhip turn 
to their advantage. Tl.e Tartars, in- 
Italiitiug the countries between RuiTia 
and Perlia, are no longer formidable to 
Ihe firft mentioned empire ; on the con- 
trary', they all refpett it, and many of 
them have willingly fubmitted, and be- 
come vaffals to it. The Cafpian feii 
and the dominions which the Rufliani 
have on that lide, give them a f^it 
opening into Pcrfia, which they have 
already improved, foas togainto tliem- 
felves a very advantageous trade, and 
this by degrees may be extended per- 
haps-as far as the Eaft-Indlcs, with Per- 
fia; but, incafeof a rupture, Ihe would 
not have much 10 fear, fmce, the fron- 
tiers of Perfia being onen, (he might 
foon make an cud of the war, by letting 
luofc upon them Ihe Taitars, who are 
her tributaries. The Turks, and tlieir 
alTociates the Crim Tartars, are more 
dangerous eneroici ; but at prefeut, the 
cireunUtances of the Porte arc fuch, at 
will fcarce allow her to break with the

they arc divided, and the Ottomans 
(hould recover their ancient power, they 
may be formidable to both. As xa

the fun is vertical )) which ConliAs in

Thii illand is as remarkable for fer-

' plenty of targe vines, fine cotton trees, 
with abundance of excellent tobacco. 
Their other fru;tt are, plamanei, ba- 
nana*, ananas, lemons. Here are alfo 
large walks of cocoas, and good fugar 
works, which have both boi'fe and wa- 
' ter-millt f and they are faid to hare the 
beft fugari in all the Weft-Indies, tho' 
not in great qiuntities, for want of 
hands to cultivate the caoes. 

Here are large mioei of copper, 
which furnilh metal for great guni, &c. 
As gold-dull ii found in the land of the 
rivers, it ii conjcAured that there are 
mines of that precious metal in the 
mountains, of which there runs a high 
ridge from the ealt to the weft end of

adtturatioD, agreed it wm impofEbie to 
look on it without enjoying the happi' 
nef* of that celeltiai fwan, who podelied

So, my hotd, leplied the painter, I

on the pencil, as to ihis particular, ai'e 
doe entirely to the model : this pifiure 
it done from a young womun who fili 
here every day for a crown. Impoffible! 
cries the Count. Such a beauty would 
be ai celebrated as the divine Marehi- 
oneFs de , and as rich as the 

daughter* of dc Creffus, The words 
were fcarce out ol his mouth when I 
entered the room, and perceived his 
ExoelleBcy agreeably tlruck with my 
appearance. He faid a great many 
obliging things, to which I replied with 
a. modeft cmbairallinent that completed 
my conqueft. Indeed there was no oc- 
niion fer much experience to perceive 
the great Jmpreflion I had made on him ; 
•Utd from which I conceived, from that 
moment, the nioft flattering profpefts 
of my tiiture fortune. Nor were there 
long merely ideal, in going out of the 
kaufe of Mr. B. I was addrciTed by a 
fervant of the envoy, whopreuaiied on 
me to follow him to hit matter. His 
propofal, J mult own, fuited too well 
ny own inclinations for me to reFufe 
him. I permitted myfelf, (hercfoie, 
to be conduced to hii Excellency's

Count loaded me prerently with lich 
cloaths and jewels of all kinds. Is 
fhort, from a tixth floor in the jhburb* 
of St. Marccau, I wai defcended into x 
gilt chariot highly vamiibed by Martin, 
and was transtbrmed into a lady of 

Neither did I feel myfelf long auk- 
ward in my new fituation i (otM ac- 
quiring that inn tent and air ofeaJe, 
which are generally fuppofed to be the 
effca only of a reliiied education. I 
appeared at the fpefiaclci, and in all 
public places ; where 1 had no fooner 
fliewed myfelf than I became the falhi- 
onable toall. 

As ! was one day coming out of the 
palais reyal, and was looking about in 
vain for my chariot, the Chevalier de 
Lunac, whom I had feen on a vifit to 
a lady of my acquaintance, very politely 
olFtred me his : I accepted it, and be 
coiuluaed me home, where, in return 
tor his civility, I invited liim to ftay 
fupper. The envoy was abfent at Ver- 
failles. I faw, atthe^firli glance, the 
Chevalier was amoroufiy difpofed ; and 
neglected nothing to iufiame hitpaJTion. 
He was juR returnLd from making his 
naval campaign as Knight of Malta % 
was very young, had a remarkable at- 
tachment toladies of my qtulity, and war 
jnft come to the potrcflion of a fine for- 
tune. For thefc reafoiis I determined 
to leave nothing undone to plealc him. 
Bcfides this, his KKccllency, the Count, 
t>egan to grow troublefome, and the 
impertinence of love is of all others the 
motl difagreeable. I lelblvcd thcreliire 
to get rid of him ; not that I thought 
it prudent to break with lum, till I was 
well aJTured of the fentimenis of the 
chevalier. Of Ihefe I was i<itin fatisGed,

thtpajfap thrmgh Saxony. 

SINCE the King of Pniflia clearly 
fbreliiw a war was inevitabie, and 
that a paflage tlirough Saxony was ab- 
solutely necdiary for \m array, he or- 
dered M. de Malzdhn, his minifter at 
the court of Dieiileii, to demand it. 
On the 19th of Anguli he accordingly 
had a private audience of die King of 
Poland, and made tiie following verbal 
declaration 10 hit Majelty, on the part 
of the King liis MaJtcr. 

' Hi» Majefty the King of Piuffia 
ficds hiailelt obliged, by the behaviour 
ot the Enipcefs-queen, to attack her, 
and to march through tlie territories of 
Saxony into Bohemia : he accordingly 
demands a pafiagc through the eleft, ral 
dominion; of his Polilh Maicfty, de- 
claring, that his troops fhall obferve the 
liriflcft difcipline, and. take all the care 
of the country that the circuinttances 
will permit. His Poiilli Majelly and 
his royal family may at the fame time 
depend upon being in pcrfedt fafety, 
and of having the grealirft refpeft paid 
them, on the part of his Pruffiin Ma- 
jelly. As to the reft, after reflefting 
U)H,n the events of the year 1 744, there 
ii no realbn tn he furprized, that the 
King of Prufiia fliould Kike fuel) mea- 
fure.i,' as may prevent a return of what 
then happened. Moreover, lie dclires 
nothing lb much as a fpeedy re-efta- 
blifhmcnt of peace, to give him the 
opportunity of reftoring the King of 
fotand to the iMlftllion of his domini- 
ons, againft which iie has not formed 
any dangerous dedgns."

which this dccl.-iration put him into, 
anfwered M. de M.lr.ahn, ' that bf 
fliould not have cxpecled a requifition 
in the form then made to liim; tlut 
being at peace uiitli the world, and unr 
der no engag.-meat with any of the 
powers achially at war, he could not 
conceive tjte end of making fuch a de-

fwer upon this fub)e.?t in writing, and 
hoped his PrulTun M:i;efty, contenting 
himlelf witli a quick pa(Etge, would 
neither forget the refpefl due to a fove-

of the Oei-iaauic body i-eciprocally owe

find the King of Poland's fentimcnts 
acquiefce with his declarations : that 
the neutrality which his Polifh Majefty 
feemcil deliious to obrei-ve, was exa^ly 
what he rc<^uired of him ; but in order 
to render this neutrality more fecure, 
it would be pi'Oper for tiis Polilh Ma-

troops he had aJiembled at Pima back

a full proof of a neutrality, and alter

The trading commodities of this 
ifland are hidei, taliow, fugar, indigo, 
cotton, coco:i, coli'ee, gingtu", tobacco,

The Spaniards by degrees conquered 
tlie natives, and at laft wholly extir- 
pated them, leaving neither men, 
women, norcliilili-en. While the na- 
tives enjoyed their polTelTioni, they cul- 
tivated their lands for the Spaniards, 
and fupplled them with filh, and Ibme 
quantities of gold : during which time 
the Spaniards lived much more happy, 
«nd in greater affluence, than tbey 
)iave done ever lince ; wliereai now the 
far greater part of what the Spaniardi 
claim, ra'her than poflefs, is dcfert, 
and yields them little or nothing, for 
want of hands to improve the luxuriant 
Ibil. As this iltand was the firlt of the 
SpaniQi diicoverie^ in the new world, 
{o it was for a confiderible time the 
centure of their trade in tliefe parts ; 
and as they had been for many years 
(o\e polleiToisof it, was for fome part 
of that time a very flourilhing colony. 
But after tlieir conqucft of Peru, Chili, 
and the great additions they made to 
their teiTitories on the continent both 
of North and South America, thty 
ilighted this ifland, which encouraged 
the Freneh, about the middle of the 
Ji& century, to fix themfelves on the 
Weft part of it, where they have ini' 
proved their fettlements to great per- 
feftion, and are become very numerous 
and flrong. The French here are faid 
to equal, if not out-number the Spa^ 
ntards ; though both togedier fall very 
Ihoit of what the extent and fertility 
ol' the iiland is capable to maintain. 

The French, in the year 1694, under 
M. du CafTe, then governor of HiTpa- 
Iiiola, made a defcenC upon Jamaica, 
and plundered feweral plantations, be-

attacked, took, and demolilhed th* 
fort of Porte de Paix, and carried off 
a vail plunder. In Ihort, the Weft 
part of the illand having fulfered fo 
much, both by the defcentt of tbe £n< 
glilh and French, obliged the Spaniard! 
to grant to the latter all that part of it, 
to the Well of Monte Chrilto on the 
North, and CapeMongononiheSoutKi 
and as they made this concefliou rather 
from conAnunt than pleafure, and 
though the Spaniards were glad to live 
upon good terms with them, yet they 
always coniidered them as iifurper* of' 
a coimtry to which they had no fort of 
right i vhich continued to be the caft 
till the year 1697, when the Spaniard* , 
yielded that part of the illand to them, 
at the treaty of Ryfwick, and the boun- 
daries between them and the. Frenclt

leg* i« judicious. -T-38. Alandftape, by Jd. Leigh. This pifture i» tike Rich- 

G. Smith. Fine. — 4.1. The portraits of ardfons romances, or fonie of the vorft 

two children, by G. Mathias. This of Ehakefpear's plays. There is an un- 

portrait would have had a better effeft common wildntfs both in the deftgn and 

rftheartifthadfoftened the rough-calling execution. The Ihip is admirably liiu- 



«n the brow of the boy. That Tort < 
rough boldnefs belongs to a ftyle very 
diderent from the reft of the pifture ; it 
wants uniformity of manner. — 43. A 
portrwt of a lady, by A. Carpentiers. 
The portrait of a pair of ruffles.— 45. 
His Majefty in the charafler of Auguft- 
nt, with Mecxnas and Agrippa. Hai

Better painted than drawn.— 7+- A

byMifsReed. Mil's Reed does honour not Saxcn hair, but fiax, and the face 



to her country ; a very beautiful pic- 
ture, and the hare natural i if there ia 
«ny fault, it is in the hands. — 48. A 
landfcape, by G. Smith. Great merit. 
—49. King Stephen brought prifoner 
to the Emprefs Matilda, by Chev. Ca- 
fali. This waj the only picture repre- 
fented for the prizf, which it conTc' 
qtKntly obtained i and hence it appears, 
that all tiie encouragement given by this 
fiiciity has not yet produced 
biftory painter. King Steph 



properly imagined for thefubjeft. 
— 81. landicapes, by J, Smith. This 
piflure moft dcfervedly obtained the firft 
prize for landfcape painting. It is in- 
deed a very excellent piece. — S4. Our 
Saviour fupported by angels, by Cafali. 
Middling. — 85. Moon-light, by G. 
Smith. Wortbyof its author. —86. A

Cafali. This Sampfon ii by no meani 
fnlficiently herculean. Tho' we are toU 
that his ftrength was in hi; hair, yet 



a plate not quite fo new. — 88. Afnow-

As concerning William Durent, be-

rent fworn ind examined depofed in 
open court, That about the tenth of 
March, 1663, Ihe having a ip^ial oc- 
calion to go trom home, >nd h^Ting 
none in her houfe to take care of her 
fwd child (it then fucking) defired Amy 
Duny, her neighbour, to look to her child 
during her ablence, for which (he pro- 
miled to give her a penny : but the fajd 
Dorothy Durent deOred the faid Amy " 
rot to fuekle her child, and laid a great 
charge upon her not to do it. Upon 
ivhich it was alked by the court, why 
Ihe did give that direftion, flie being an 
old woman, and not capable of ^ving 
fuck f It was anfwered by the faid Do- 
rothy Durent, that the very well knew 
that Ihe did not give fuck, but that fof 
fi)me yean before, fhe had gone under 
the Reputation of a Witch, which was 
one caufe made her give her the caution. 
Nevertheless after the departure of thi» 
deponent, the faid Amy did fuekle the 
child : aAd after the return of the faid 
Dorothy, the faid Amy did acquaint 
her. That jbt had gi'mn fuck tt the child 
contrary to her command. Whereupon 
the deponent was very angry with the 
faid Amy for Uie fame ; at which the 
laid Amy was much difcontented, and 
ufed many high exprelTions and threai- 
ning fpeechcs towaids her ; telling her. 
That Jte had ai geedlo have dene c /her-'

fits of fwounding, and was held in fuch 
terrible manner, that (he was much af- 
frighted [herewith, and fo continued 
for divers weeks. And the faid ex- 
aminant farther faid, that (he being cx< 
ceedingly troubled at herchild'sdiitem- 
fwr, did go 10 a certain perfon named 
doflor Jacob, who lived at Yarmouth, 
who had the reputation in the country,

and at night wlien ihe put the child to 
bed, to put it into the faid blanket, 
and if (he found nny thing in it, (he 
(hould not be afraid, but to throw it 
• into the fire. And this deponent did 
according tothis direftion ; and at night 
when fhe took down the blanket^with 
an intent to put her child therein, there 
fell ont of the fame a great toad, which 
ran up sjid down the hearth, and (he 
having a young man only with her in 
the houfe, delired him to catt^ the 
toad, and throw it into the (ire; which 
the youth did accordingly, and held it 
there with the tongs ; and as Toon at it 
wai in the fire it made a great and 
horrible noife, and after a fpace there 
was a fla(hing in the fire like Gun-pow- 
der, making a noife like the difcharge 
ofapiltol, and thereupon the toad wac 
no more feen nor heard. It wat afked 
by the court, if that after the noife and 
■fla(hing, there was not the fubftancc of 
the toad to be feen to confume in the 
fire ? And it na» anfwered by the faid 
Dorothy Durent, that after the ilalhing 
and noife, there was no more feen than 
if there had been none there. The 
next day there came a young woman, 
a kinfwoman of tlie faid Amy, and a 
neighbour of this deponent, and told 
this deiMnent, that her aunt (meaning 
the faid Amy) was in a moll lamenta- 
ble condition, having her face all fcorch- 
ed with fire, and that flie was fitting 
alone in her houfe, in her fmock with- 
out any fire. And thereupon this de- 
ponent went into the houfe of the faid 
Amy Duny to fee her, and found her 
in the fame condition as was related to 
her ; for her face, her legs, and Thighs, 
whitli this deponent faw, fecmed very 
much (torched and buint with fire, at 
wliieh this deponi'nt feemed much to 
wonder. And a(kod the faid Amy how 
(he came into that fad comlition ? and 
the faid Amy replied, (he might thank 
her for it, (or that fhe this deponent 
w.-is the caufe thereof, but that (ha

this had certainly been put in 
if Lord Galway, the Commander of 
our forces in that country, though a 
Frenchman by birth, had not prevented 



with; but, he wanted a pretence for 
' l)reaking th:it treaty, nithout breaking 
faith, and this did his bulincfs very ef- 
' feftually ; for, as Toon ai the fleet of 
the allies appeared upon hii co^tt, he 
thought fit to declare himfetf neuter, 
knd not long alter made a treaty with 
Charles III. but, before any Rcpi could 
be taken for profecuting the war, he 
was removed by death, December 9, 
1706, whcnhehadliredfifly-eight, and 
from the death of bis brother, had 
reigned twenty- three years, 

John V, the father of the prefent 
■ King of Portugal, fucceeded his father, 
' Knd purfued hii fteps very exafily, not- 
withftanding the Spaniardifurprifed the 
Cqwn of Alcant.ira, and made the gar- 
rifon priibners of war, almoft before he 
wa> warm in the throne. The afliftanre 
he gave the allies brought the Spanilh 
Monarchy twice to the brink of ruin ; 
and though moft of our accounts fay, 
that the Porluguefe foldiers behaved 
' but inditFerently in that war, yet this 
ought not to be underftood as a national 
- reSeftion, further than as long peace, 
great wealth, and much luxury, are 
'capable of corrupting any people. 

While the war continued, the com- 
. merce of the Brazils began to grow 
much more conCderable than in former 
times, by the working of the gold 
mines; and, as there was at that time 
ft great intercourfe between the two na- 
tions, the BritiOi traders obtained a large 
Aare of that gold for the commodities 
and mancfaAorics with which they fur- 
nifhed the Portuguefe. King John 
could not help feting this with concern ; 
be thought it hard they Ihould have but 
a fi^t of the vaft wealth derived from 
their own fettlements, and that it fliould 
immediately vanilh, as it were, out of 
Portugal into another country. His 
■ Minifters were exaflly of their Mafttr't 
opinion, and many conl'uttalions were 
held about finding a fpeedy and elfeihi- 
b1 remedy for what they conlidercd as 
the greatell grievance. At length it 
was concluded, that the only method 
ttat could be taken, i/as to prohibit the 
wear ct' foceiga juanuta^lUTcs i and 



He was a great favourite with his 
Portuguefe Majefty, and dleemed to 
be, as he ceitainly was, a very honeft 
man. To him theretbre, as to a friend, 
and under the ftrifleft injunftion of 
fecrecy, the King communicated tbii 
affair, and afked his advice about h. 
His Lordlhip told him furly, that the 
remedy would beworfe thanthedifeafcf 
that the fame providence which liad 
given his fubjefls gold, bad beftowed 
commodities and manufaftarcs upon the 
EnglUhj that the exchange therefore 
was not To injurious as he imagined ; 
and that, by prohibiting commerce, 
he might force thofe that were now his 
bell friends to become his enemies, and 
to employ their naval power, whidi be 
knew to be fo much fuperior to bis own, 
in taking that by force for which they 
gave a proper equivalent. 

He fiuther reprefeiued that, what- 
ever turn the war might take, Portugal 
mult always Hand inneedof thefricnd- 
fhip of England, to prevent becoming 
dependent on the Houfe of Aulbia or 
the Houfe of Bourbon; and therefore it 
was much bettci- that his fubjedi fliould 
trade with thofe Irom whom he had fa 
much to hope, than trith other nations 
from whom he had all things to fear. 
The King, who was both a reafonable 
and a jull Prince, and who in this bufi- 
nefs aftcd foleiy from a laudable affec- 
tion for his fubjefls, comprehended the 
force of thefc arguments, and immedi- 
ately laid aCde a projeS, which, how 
plaufible focvcr in its firft appearance, 
was certainly at the bottom neither equi- 
table nor prafticablc. Happy for the 
world if all Kings meant ac well, deli- 
berated as coolly, and were as ready to 
receive and follow good advice I

of the pavilion, wiia long embroider'^ 
culbion of crimfbn velvet, with two pil- 
lows of the fame work at each end, this 
was oppolite to the lady for us to walk 
over; there was Ibmethinglikcan awning 
made of crimfon- velvet, went all over the 
outfidc of the pavilion, and was fup- 
ported by pillars of gold i we had two 
golden cencers of incence and fandal* 
wood, which aimoft fufFocatcd us with 

tea, which feemed to be made of rofc* 
water and cjnamnn ; every tbi/ig was 
ferved in gold-piate j we had beetle* 
brought in gold philigre- boxes on great 
gold waiters ; the beetle it a large grceo 
leaf, which the Irtdiani chew, of an 
intoxicating nature, very difagrecable 
to the Englifh ; but we complied, in 
complaifance j when this wasover, ibert 
wa:> a large (ilver l)oard brought, cover- 
ed with a work'd carpet, and prefented 
to Mrs. B)nion: when uacovered, 
there was a fine Moor's coat, and a 
couple of exceeding rich veils, tbe Na- 
bob's lady put Mrs. Byniun'i veil od 
her, then we, to return the compliment, 
put on o'lrs, which fhe feemed pieafed 
with. We went back to the governor'* 
in them, where we dined and ftay'd 
the evening ) Ihe fent an entertainment 
of fixty dilhes, all under filver coven, 
and Ihut in fcarltrt bags, made for Lhi* 
purpofe. Mrs. Bynion made a prelent ' 
of a hundred Pagadoea toherattendanli. 
The Nabob's lady and all her atten- 
dants admired us all, but thought our 
drefs furprizingly odd ; two of them 
examined my drefs till they came to my 
boop, at which they Were aftoaiflied ; 
they admired my twecxer and trinkets. 
We were the firft Englifh Udiet they 
had ever feen, and it is not furprlling 
we fhouM appear as odd to ibem, ai 
they did to us. Thrfe immenfe richet
