This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library 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.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

piated il^eir Climes under the band) of Public Juftice; and 
that in fuch a rapid Succeflion at muft a[lonil]i the moft inu- 
tcntive Obferver. Ha^ Ing felt it our Duty to rolate with Fi- 
delity thcfe melancholy £vcn:s as they have arifen ; we took 
to the Great DifpoTer gf Events, in humble hope that the 
ftepaX Mercies which have hitherto attended this favoured 
^UQtry, may long be continued to it. Happily prefen'cd 
by our Infular Situation froin the more immediate Scene of 
War; may we be truly ^nlible of the BleiQng; and may our 
ioe&imable Conflitution long remain impregnable to the Ac- 
tacks of every Alfailant, and be tranfinitced inviolate to the 
latcft Poflerity t Wilhing moft rmcercly to. draw a Veil over 
whatever might tend to keep open DiiTentions wliich we hope 
arc now for ever clofed ; it w;U Ii- fuiEcient to recall to R-- 
culleiSi9n the Lxceilcnes ol our Lnws, ;uid rlie I'urity v.k\\ 
wbicii they are adminlltcrcd. — The Keader vv:!i pardon this 
Kffufion, not wliolly undigrellive. 

To puf numerous and very Ifaincd Correfpondents wc have 
to pay thofe Thanks which their own ingenuous Hearts v/ilL 
diftate to them in the warmcil Terms, without over-rann^ . 
our Sentiments. To them alone it is owing that the Gen- 
tleman'* Magazine has fo long prefrrved its Literury Re- 
pmatiou. Their Contributions unite to form an Aggic^sw 



iv PREFACE. 

• 

of Entertainment and Inftruftion. With Pride and Pleafurt 
wc look round co fome of the brighteft Ornaments of Church 
and State— i-to the Bar, the Pulpit, and the Senate — and fee 
in every Department Names of the firft Diflindtion who have 
Xent their early Shafts from our Ulyffes^s Bozv. And it i^ with 
confcious SatisfaAion we reflect that, whenever the Impetuo- 
fity of Controverfy has led our Correfpondents to a greater 
De'gree of Warmth than cooler Prudence may have fuggefted^ 
our Columns have ever been open to the Vindication ot every 
Perfon who has thought himfelf aggrieved; and in fome 
Cafes even to an Infertion of a diredk Attack upon our- 
selves. Let this, however, be a Hint to our Friends, not to 
indulge too freely in the Satiric Vein. We wi(h to hold out 
an Olive-branch both in Literature and Politicks ; and that 
an Armiftice may take Place in the Territories of Mr. Urbah^ 
even if it Ihould fail on the Continent of Europe. 

In one Department of our Mifcellany it is not arrogant to 
aflert that we (land unrivalled. The Obituary forms a Body 
of Biography, which Poderity will look back to with a Satis- 
faction which any one may conceive who for a moment con-^ 
liders the Defers of (imilar Annals in preceding Periods. In 
this Branch of our Labours, we have to acknowledge the Af- 
(iftance of many Friends. At the fa^ie Time we requeft thofe 
who in future may be inclined to favour us with Intelligence 
of this kind to cbr.fine themfelves in general to Dates and 
Fadts, and to avoid expatiating on that which, arifing from 
Circumftances of private Knowledge, or a local Nature, may 
ferve equally for Thoufands, as the favourite Individual to 
whom it is promifcuoufly applied. 

The mo(l difficult Part ot our Taft remains; an Apology 
to thofe who may feel hurt at their Productions not appearing 
in Print. To fuch we can only fay, that, in Cafes where 
Articles are wholly improper^ we regularly point them out ; 
but that all others are intended to be ufcd, till the Prefs of 
frclh Correfpondence becomes fo great, that, large and crowd- 
ed as our Pages are, and fmall as is our Type, we are ofttfn un- 
able to find Koom for what we eftcem truly valuable. We have, 
therefore, to requeft Indulgence on this Head ; and to beg 
that our Friends will be as concife as the SubjeA will admits 
and avoid, wherever they can, fuperfluous Controverfy. We 
confider ourfelves as Caterers for the Publick; and wifhing, to 
the bed of our Abilities, to furni(h them with Inftru£tion and 
Delight, we truft they will give us Credit for endeavouring at 
leaft to peiform our Tafk with Impartiality, and with (omc 
^fihc Advaatagci obtained from long Experience.

no prevailing difeafe among anv of the

was brought nearer into land, and ' 
moored in the tier of merchantmrn. On

rerurned, wiih extreme di(Kcui;y, from

It is evident, from the beft iiiform- 
ation, conve%ed by numerous letters 
from Piiiladelptiia, and from the accu* 
rate publication of Matthew Carey, one 
of the i'urviving commitiec-'men of this 
cityit that ibt appearance of cuit ipfcc- 



tiout tjireafe was foipe months after the 
arrival of the Hinkey at Grenada; for 
Dr. Hodccs' child w^s the firft vi'^im

died nil the 5th of Au^rtift^ 

The only French (hip which the 
Americans fu^peQed or infeflun '• ^s,, 
the britateer Sans Culottes Mar(elluis» 
with her prize the Flora, whi.h aiiiv^d 
at Phil dclphia the 22^ of July A few 
da\s prior, arrived a vtfTe; from loha« 
go, which had loll neatly ah her h-inds 
by a malignant fever. In the river ihe 
(hipped frelh h^nds, many of whotn 
died. From ilii« (hip the American^ 
refeived the fata poifon. 

From the relations hitherto commum* 
cated to uv, the diftafe tranfp'antcd frofi> 
Bulam to Gieddda was tiTentik ly the 
fame a^ that likewtfe fo 'a^ai at Philadel- 
phia n e yellow ti>>(*ue of the (km. 
the fvhtptom^ and event, and the fame* 
nefs of the vidims. ail combine to con- 
vey this convi^lion. The unluppy 
Frenchmen, driven from St. Doaiingo, 
and inhabiine; a part of Philadelphia 
analogous M our wapp'ng, were next to 
the Negroes mod exempt fiom this very 
difeafe, which they have 1>een f4lfely ac • 
cu^ed of propagating. The N-grojs of the 
Entail Ih vVeit-Itidia idands, liKe thofe of 
the /^mericen continent^ marched through 
the io!e61cd tanks vlmodwith impunity. 
The iil'nd ot H fpantcU, ind 1 believe 
every other French ifland, has efcaped 
the lava^ei* of this tcbule I'oi'on { and 
hence, frifin everv confideration, I am bold 
to conclude, tnat with nerher French-

Ne^th Abbey in Glamorganfliire AfcriM. 



[Jam 



The church confined of a n«vc, about 
two hundred »nd leo feet long, and 
Axty-fix wide, with a crofi-aile, about 
ene huVred and fifty feet long, and 
fifty-four wide; a large tower in the 
centre, and two light turrets at the 
\Ve(l end; a good part of the latter, 
with the winding (laircafe in each, dill 
remain. The (he- 1 of the abbot's houfc 
is entire, and includes feverjil fpacious 
rooms, the larg^ft of which is ih^ rc- 
feftory (now called the great bal')» ^^ 
in^ feventy feet in length, and thirtjr 
feet wide, with a vaulted done roofi 
fupporied by a row of plain columns, 
running Jenthways throagh the middle 
of the room. 

Leiand in hit Itinerary calls Neath 
" the faire(l abbey of all Wales :" but 
in his Coiledanea he it inclined to givt 
Margam the preference. 

It continued until the freneral di(To- 
]utioa of religious houfes, when its 
annual revenues were eftimated at 
13 s/. 7/. 7e/|. according to Dugdale, but 
Speed Dates th%Ri at 150/. 45. 9^. This 
TaluatioD mtt(V have been very low even 
at that time, (inee the demeine itfelf is 
of a confiderible extent, and formerly 
there were feveral detachecf eflaies be* 
Jongin^to the monaftery, which are Hoc 
held with it now, fonnc in the neigh- 
bourhood, and others in the different 
pariflies of Llaodilo-taUy-bont, Oyfter- 
xnoQth LUnridian, Penmain, Porte** 
non, and LUndewi, inOower, all with- 
in^ the county of Glamorgan. 

It was granted 33d of Henry Vllf. to 
Sir Richard Willia:ns, alias Cromwell, 
grcar-gr. nd- father to the Proteftor. Wc 
l)nd it afterwards in the poflfeirion of the 
Heibci rs ; from whoai it was transferred 
to Si! William D^Jingtcn, of Brey- 
more, in the county of Southampton, 
knt. by his marriage with Mary, the 
daughter of Sr John Herbert, Knt. 
fccrtrarv of ftate ro Queen Elizabeth, 
and .R' phew to William earl of Pem- 
broke. Edward DoJin^ton, efq fon 
of the laid Sir Williiim Dodington, gave 
it to his nephew Philip Hobby, efq. 
fourth fon of Peregrine Hobby, efq. of 
Byfljeo, i« the county of litiks, who 
r<^lidcd a the abbey until his death, a;)d 
I'o did his reli6t Elizabeth Hobby, 
daughter of Sir Timothy Tirrell of 
Shottover, in the county of Oxfprd, 
knt« and grand-daughter of the 'earned 
Archbilh'p Uflier. At Mrs. Hobby't 
denh the houfc was deferred Uiid I'uf- 
fercd CO fall todcciy. 



Philip Hobby, efq. the laft fole pro« 
prietor, died A. D. 1678^ leaviag three 
daughrert co-heirrfles, Elizabeth, Ca- 
tharine, and Anne— the el deft of whom, 
Elizabeth, married Henry Com pton, efq* 
of Biflern, Haots; Catharin6 iharried 
Griffith Rice, Efq. of Newtoa, ia the 
count V of Carmarthen i and Anne mar- 
ried Mr. Stanley, grand* fat her of tbo' 
late Hans Stanley, t(<\. The prefenc 
proprietors are Lord Dincvor».« lineal 
defcendant of the f^id Griffith ftice, 
efq. John Compton, efq. the righ^ 
hon. Welbore Ellis, and CbriSo* 
pher D'Oyley, efqrs. the two lad* 
mentioned gentlemen having married 
each a daughter of the &d Haat 
Stanley, Efq. 

There are no monuments of the dead 
remaining, either in the church or ad« 
joining it. The folitary ftump of aa 
old yew-tree only marks the fitc of the 
church-yird; the figure of an eccle* 
fiftftic in a cumbcnt poflure, and holding 
in his hand the model of a building 
(probably defigned to reprefent tUe 
abbey) has been preferved from deftruc- 
tion, and is placed on the lawn, before 
Courtherbert houfe, a froail diftance 
from the monaftery. 

The ruins are extenfive, and the luxil 
oriant mantling of ivy, in which they 
are enveloped, give them a very iokmn 
and renerable afped. 

Weed? and briers noMf cover the fpor» 
where the prieft difcharged the foUam 
duties of hit fundion, aad the fwelling 
note of the " organ" aided *< the fre- 
quent praifes of w bite-robed Bonk^*."

Though Venice produced the 6r(l 
Gazette in 1536, it was circulated in 
manufcript long after the invention of 
printin)]^, to the clofe of the 16th ceo- 
tury» as appears from a colle&ion of 
thefe Gazettes in the Magliabcchian Li- 
brary at Florence, according to Mr. 
Chalmers, io his curious and enteitain- 
iDg Life of Ruddiman, p. 114. 

Mr. Clialmers obfcrves, that it may 
frratify our national pride to be told that 
we owe to the wiliiom of Elizabeth, and 
the prudence of Burleigh, tiie circulation 
of the firft genui^ news-paper, ** The 
Englifh Mercuric,*' -printed during the 
time of the S^anifli. armada. The firft 
, number, preierred ftill in the Britifli 
Mufeum, is mark||) 50; it is dated the 
23d of July, i$bA, and contains the 
following curious article : 

«*Ye(lcrday the Scotch Amdinfador 
bad a private audience of her Majedy, 
and delivered a letter from the King his 
mafter, containing the roofV cordial af- 
furances of adhering to her Maje(\y'& in- 
tereftt, and to thofc of thcProieftant 
KeligioQi and the young King faid to 
her Majefty'« Miniller at his court, that 
all the favour he expefted from the Spa* 
niards was, the courccfy of Polyphemus 
to UlyfTcs, that he (bould be. devoute'd 
the lafV." 

Thefe publications were however then, 
and long after, publiihed in the fbape of 
fmall pamphlets i and fothcy were called 
in a tra£t of one Burton, in 1614: **lf 
any one read now-a-dayt, it is a plav- 
book or a pamphlet of newes,** for fo 
the word was onginally l*p*!lcd. 

From 1588 ro i6ix, and during the 
pacific rei^n of James the F r(l, few of 
thefe publicatioas appeared ; but the 30 
yeais war, and the vi£(oiie» of the great 
. King Gullavus Adolphus, having ex- 
cited the curio6ty of our countrymen, a 
wetkly pa|)cr, called **The Newe« of 
the prcfcot Week,'* was piloted by N.;- 
thaniel Butter, in i6xa, which was con- 
tinued afterwards io 1626, undrr an- 
other title, by Mcrcurius Briuoi.icus; 
and they were fucceeded by the German 
Intellij^cncer in 1630, and the Svirediih 
Inielli^encer in 16311 which laf\ was 
Compiled by William Waits, of Caius 
College, who was a learned man, and 
who thus gratified the pub.'ic cuno(i:y 
with the exploits of tl^ awediOi hero, in 
a noarto pamphlet. 

Tt e i^rckt I'^bcllton in 1641 wis pro« 



dudive of abundance of thoTe periodical 
tra^ abovementioiicd, at well as of all 
tbofe that have been publilbed fince tht 
firO news-paper that appeared in the 
pref«nt form, the Public Intel Itcencer^ 
publiihed by Sir Roger L'EAraage, 
Au^. 31, 1661. 

Mr. Chalmers fubjoiot to thefe co* 
rious refearches the account of the <firft 
pa|)er printed in Scotland, in February 
1699, the Edinburgh Gazette, whica 
was accompanied anerwardt, in 1705, 
by the Edinburgh Courant 1 and, at the 
peiiod of the Union, Scotland had only 
thres news-pxpers. 

The publication of the Caltdontan 
Mercury, bv Ruddiman, April aS, 1 710, 
led this curious and entertaining biogra- 
pher to this minure and laborious invaf- 
tigation ; from which it appears, that 
England had. in 1792, 35 town and 70 
country papers; Scotland, 14 news-pa- 
pers, pubiidi.d at Edinburgh and to the 
country. 

Mr. Urban, Jmm. a. 

AS the Btbtmotb is one of the mod 
remaikable antphibious quadra*

Near tliee, he eaieih gr.ifs like an ox .*

And his adive fmce in Wm middle of hit belly. 
He raifeth his tail like ti* a cedar : 
The finewsof hi^ privities are intwined^ 
Hts nbs are ftrong as pipes of hrafs{ 
His bones are hard like a bar of iron. 
He is thd nioft extraurdioary of the works of 

God : [teeih. 

He tliat formed him h\th finely fixed his 
The mountains fupply him K^ith f(H>d ; 
And trere all the bcaftsof the field play* 
Under tbe (hady trees, he lieth down, 
In the concealment of tlie reeds, and foft mud. 
Tlie fpreading hough> <»verfhadow his retreat \ 
The Willi >ws of the river encompaiis hiro. 
Behold, the ftream may pi eft on bim, yet he 

is not afraid ; [agaiiift his menth* 
He is (ecure, although Jordan fhoukl rufh 
No^Nie can take him before his eyes 1 
And pierce through his nofe with fnares.

Mr. Urban, Carhfii^ Jan, i. 

ON the i6;h of November laft, Dr. 
Pr'cftlcy, aft'T long filence, ImiU 
yen:ured to puhi.fh a dnall pamphlet, 
intituled, " Experiments on the Gent ra- 
tion of Air from Wa.cr," &c. I need 
not inform* you, Sir, that the fubje*1 is 
of tlie grcatcft confcqocrce in the pr^- 
fent enfiairifs vihich a-^e txcrcifing the 
jvgcnuitv of the chem cal philofophcrs 
both in this country and on the Conti- 
nent; nor do I believe ic nccefT.iry to 
add, that ic is a fubjcft concerning 
which I am myfclf very dccpU inr'trclUu. 
1 truft, therefore, that vcu wiM do me 
the favour to give the fdlowini; (ibfir- 
v;iiions on this audacious pnmph'ct. for 
fuch I do not hcfitate to call it, an im- 
mcdia'c inferti n in your ufcful and tx- 
tenfivcly-circularing Magazine. 

Our aerijil philosophers in genera] hare 
been very filtnl latciy on thr fubje^.s .f 
air and w?.t:r; hu: tlic Dof^or, »pcre 
bold tl.in the reft, hath wi^.iin ventured 
into the Held* f expetimciiii wliich 1 l>cg

iclanng 'o \\\c Decompofiilon of «lcphlo- 
gifticattd and inflammtbli Air," Irom 
the Philofophical Tranfaftions of 179 1. 
The Do^or complains, that, ahhc -.^h 
the French chemilis have bad tittfe ex- 
periments before them two years, and 
notwithftanding they are unfavourai>l<: to 
the new theoiy, they have not yet been 
answered by tiicm, although he hath ap- 
plied to tiicm for this purpofe. The 
Do6lor, however, our;ht not to attribute 
their fi'encc entirely to the unanfwerable 
nature of Ijis paper, fince ic contains no- 
thing which / had not myfeif for (on.e 
years anticipated. The experiments coa- 
tained ia uac paper are good ones, and 



pear, that the Do^^oi's reafoning and 
nis theories, drawn froni rlufcveiv ex- 
periments, are abfuid. If the (i enre, 
therefore, of the foreijjn tlieniiU h*th 
not bicn o-c^fioned bv inv former publi- 
cations upon tiiis interei'ling fuhjc^^, I 
muft beg leave towhifVci in the D.»6tor*s 
ear, that it m.iy, with full a*^ much pro- 
p ictv, be attributed to the unanfwcr- 
able nature of a Trcatilc on Air, which 
I alfo published in the nan*.- of Btwirv, 
and whi h th -v Mktwifc have 1,^(1 bcfuic

nius mentions printing ac Mcntz, 1441 2 
but wiih Coftar's types. Caxson, (as 
Meerman notes) 1482, fet the invention 
of the art in 1455 j about that time in-

Palmer of Pifa, Polydore Vergil, and 
Werner's Fafciculus Teropor' evince. 
It enfued on. the feparation of FauH's

art at Strafburg about 1444. Wimphe-

and John Fauft impritvcd it. EKewhcrc 
he expla'ns this or types. Juhn Scott, 
1531, attributes the invention to John 
Mentcl 1444. - And Spiegel, the Empe- 
ror Alaximi ban's Secretary, wrote, that, 
John Mentel, at Sira(burg, in the year 
1444 invented the ait of printing; fee 
Seiz, About thi: year 1458, both Gu- 
tenberg and Mentel could (lamp 300 
ihects daily. But I think that Guten- 
berg's eldeft brother wai a workman 
with Codar, and fled to his brother ac 
Straiburg, but afterwards repaired to 
Mentz. This accounts for the reports 
that the art was bi ought fium Straflmit; 
thither. How clfe c u'd GutcnlM:r^, who 
rcf! Jed ac Strafourg from 1434 to 1444, 
learn the art from his elder biocher ? ex. 
cept, inched, he v.fictd him at Harlem, or

Wc fele^ the following as i fpecimen 
of the wriiei's manner and invcniife 
powers. 

•* One of Hammond's fervants having 
afked his permiflion to go oVer to WinJfor 
to fee a fider, who was fettled there; he 
granted his reqnei!, and gave the lad poor 
nte^ that he miglit feo tlie play. 

I w:«s, accordingly, paid away at tl»c gal- 
lery-door of th« WinJfor playhoule; and 
tlte next moniing, which was Saturday, was 
given to one of the company, who was, un- 
fortunately, tronblad with one of the greateft 
chUs tliat a man caa labour under — it was, 
the l)erpetuaUy carrying about with Wm, 
• A difcontented and repining fpint.' 

Before I had bc«fi in his iHilfeition a 
quarter of an hour,hc iioiAvmt of hisbrethren, 
wIki iifked him, in a fi*ieiutly mnniier, ' if 
he was Co be of ihtif dumer- party ?*

Wat of drum, kavhig the manager to proture 
anbther Fri-ir Lawrence for tha following 
Monday, or to change the pby— f »o rt not a. 

The U^ was, he (like many others of Ns 
profeflfon) conceived his abihuis to be of a 
ftriVroic, when they wei^, in reality, fcarcely 
of a fixth-rate nrden and on the manager's 
refiiliug him the pait«if ttie^ay Mercuth (for 
which iiis age as well s incapacity rendened 
him totally unfit), he took this [laltry method 
of revenge. 

Juftice, however (which, fixmer or late* , 
overtakes petty rafcals as well as villains cf 
D6ce, indeed all tho(e 

« That liave within them undivulged crimes 
< Unwhipp'd— ) 
purfucd his Aei's, and overtook him at, 

In plain EpgliHi, tlie manager of that 
theatre fo m:)rci&ed his vanity by his treat- 
ment of him. that he heartily icpented his 
having 4uiited fo abruptly the ra/al brow of 
Windfor. 

On his arrival at that place, fo celebrated 
for irs penknives and the lofiy fpire of its 
catlicdral, he waited on the governor of the 
children of Thcfpi's, folicited r.n engagement 
(which w.ifi^rantcd), and rcqucfted to make 
his firlt apiiearance in Othello, Moor of Ve- 
nice. 

The manager confented. On tht night 

appomlcil he made an entrie in a fiaming 

fcarJet c.ojc, \\hii9 fbanei H^aiilcoai^ blue 



cotton Aockings, cocked hat, itK^ ramili^-^ 
but performed the chiira^er fo litcle to tha 
fat.isfa£lion of tl)e auJicnce, that, long bcf.ne 
he announced it, they heaitily wiihed ' OeUl" 
/»'j 9ceuf,ttion got\e ! '* 

The Moor himfelf, however, wa- wtll 
plealtd. He tliouj^ht, and with ju!\icc, tluvl 
B:'ri7, wlien living, played it as well \ hut 
he doubted whether lie had ever played it 
better. 

The Mrmager,^ it fliould fc«m, was of n 
very diiloreiu opinion ; for, the next morn- 
ing, the unf )rtun.ite ftroller faw his name 
aitiched to the part of the fecoqd nmrderer 
in Macbeth, in tlie play-bills for b^ next re- 
prtfentation. 

Ftitl of indignation and refentment, he 
flew to the a|>aitmein of tlie theatrical mo- 
narch, and, without knocking at the doftr, 
burfl into the room with iheabi-npt qiiedion, 

* Wh.it on earth, do you m^-an, fir, by the 
grofs affront you have put ujmhi me ?' 

* What ;.ff.onr, fur' 

* Why, fir, there is my name ni the bills 
for the fecoml nmidcrer/ 

' A midake ot tlie printer's, fir— entirel/

» O!^ tir,* qnite foftened, « 'tis very well,

full a piece you mail want my afiiftance ?' 

' What character, fir^ why ihefrft uV- 
derer — for 1 am conviaced youMl d(» it more 
juflice than any m-ui in mycomriany.' 

It was to nopnrpufe that the other remon- 
ftratcd, fiormed, vow^ vangeance, with a 
long train of ct caters : tlie manager was in- 
flexible. 

The adlor (calling to mind that I and two 
of niy bretl-.rcn were the only friends he hjd 
hft, and not looking upon fiiver with the 
eyes of Bajfann, 
*• ril none of tbee^ thr^u pale and common

fuhmitted to the indignity, and retired to his 
Ifidginzs, planning all the way an hundred 
difleceitt fchemesnf revenge. 

Wiicn the night came, my owner grumbled 
out Ivis (hort part : previous to whicti 1 was 
««itMefs to a very curious fcene, that may, 
poilihly, divert tlie readey as much as it did 
myfelf. 

Tl.e Manager performed Macbeth : and

The Libel further ftates, That^ in confe-

ac Edinburgh in OAciber, which prefumptu-

The Libel concludes, that all, or part

After a long uial, which laAed till one 
o'clock on Tburfdaf morning, Mr. Sktrv« 
ing was fo«nd gailty of fedition,. and fen- 
tenced to 14 years tranf|)ortation. 

13. The Lord Provoft and Magiftrates 
fi)lk>wed up their Proclamations, by alfem- 
bli'^g an immenfe body of ofRoers and others 
to keep the peace ; thiey iflued an order that 
no hackney-coaches (hould ply in the flreet5, 
aud in the morning the Lord Provoft ap- 
peared at the head of the force collected Co 
difperCie any tumtdiuous cavalcade tliat might 
accompany Ma>garot to the court. About 
ten o'clock Mr. NLirgarot and hi^ friends ap- 
peared, furronnJed by a multitude of peo- 
ple, all on foot, anil ranf^ in rank and filei 
bearing a whit** ftii;, on which was infcribed 
thefe words, La^u, Liherty^ Rfrnfin, 'Jufike^ 
and Truth, The mob had no weap<*ns of 
any kind, and were peifeA!y quier. As 
fiion as thty made tlieir appearance emering 
the briiige from the new- town, tlie Provolt 
and his cavalcade marched forward to meet 
them, and tlie two bodies met on the bridge. 
The magiftrates innmediately feized the flag, 
difperied the multitude, took feme of the 
moil forward of the m6b into cuftody, and 
then proceeded to the parliament houfe with 
Margart)t and his friend Mr. Brown, where 
they left him to take his trial, while they 
went to hold a council to deliberate on what 
further fteps they fbou!d take for the pre* 
fervation of tlie peace. 

The trial commenced immediately; the 
court, overruletl all the obj«r£ttons which the 
prifoner made — 1>ts challenges of the jury 
ttiey reCifted— and eveiy preliminary mo- 
tion which he made they fet afide, and the 
j;uy were impannelled. 

The trial lafted till three o'clock on Tiief- 
day morning, when fentence of tr.«nfporta«

"npHE moft deplorable circum* 
-L fiance Nvhich diftioguiflies this 
Revolution from others is, that, when 
its o> iginal objc£l was in a great mea- 
fure obtained, oider, tranquillity, and 
fubm'.lfion to law, did not return. One 
revolution has been (grafted on another; 
new alterations have been imagined 
and executed by men more violent, and 
ineans more bloody, than the former; 
the populace, flimulatcd by unprinci- 
pled leaders, have committed all the 
cxcclTcs of revolted Ncgrot5, i.r of (laves 
who have burfi from the galleys. At 



and carnage as have been of late exhi- 
bited in this country. Yet it ought to 
be remembered, that dcfpoiifm, though 
lefs favage, is more hopeltfs than anar» 
chy, which contaiiK within iiftlf the 
feeds of its own deflru£lion ; whereat 
the pillars of defpotifm, being artfully 
arranged for the fupport of each other, 
may Hand for ages. Were it not for 
this circumftjnce, and if there were no 
choice but to life under arbitrary go«

ley (ays theft two airs fomi the nitrons 
aad IB the proportioa of twice the balk 
of InflanuMne air to the pare air. He 
has adopted my idea of phlogifton, bc« 
kig an alkaline priadple y indeed, it is 
clear, for I formed alkaline air ia^o in* 
flammable nir by hear alone. Then 
pjure air, which is not the leaft aceicent^ 
not ading in the flightefl mann^ upon 
the vegetable juices or alkalies, ought, 
with twice its bulk of inflammable air, Le- 
the alkaline principle, to form the flroag**

when formed, require fuch a large pro* 

Kr^ion of alkali to neutralize it. 6uch, 
r. Urban are the abfurd doArines de- 
dueible from the arguments and expla* 
nations which our modern chcmifts have 
given of their own experiments* 

Now, in forming this inflammable 
alkaline air, and pore air, into the ni* 
trous acid, an immenfe quantity of fire 
iafet at liberty, which thefe gentlemen 
icem to coniider ai a matter of no im- 
porunce, I fuppofe,bccaufc, upon their 
theories it \% perfeAly inexplicable ; but 
on mine it is not only eafily accounted 
for, but it is one ot the many argu- 
ments to which I am ready to refer, as 
dcmooftrativeof my theory, not only of 
fixed fire, bot of the formation of the 
atmofphcre. See the Gentleman's Ma- 
gasine fm* 1791. It is a painful talk, 
Mr. Urban, to be under the neceffity m 
this manner of pointing out the abfmdi*

as 1 have ample materials by me for in-

no attraftion for it. If he will dei^n jo 
look at the table of derive attrdfiions, 
which has been handed dowiTto us an* 
difputed, he will fee that the nitrous 
acid, and phlogifton, have the gitateft 
nttraftion for each other of anv bodies 
in nature. But, after getting all the air 
we can from the nitre, if we add freih 
nitrous acid 10 the alkaline refiduum, 
we can go on makinj; pure air, the acid 
not atraclmg phlogiiTon from the alka^ 
line refiduum, (which it is fuppofed to 
have attraAed from the alkali in the 
firfl procefi): the DoAor, however, 
knows that the nitrous acid, in the for>- 
mation of nitrous air, will attra€^ phlo- 
giflon from meuls, notwithftanding 
their earths have fo ftrong an attraAioa 
forphlogifton. But I have, in my for- 
mer publications flicwn, from the doc- 
tor's own experiments, that the alkali 
makes a part of the pure drj but, in ad- 
ding nitrous acid to metdKe bodies, ni* 
trous air is formed ; and then going on 
with 'the proccfs, by expofing them to 
he<»t, pure air is formed ; then, if it 
took phlogifton from the remaining ni- 
trous acid, the metallic earth fliould be 
again reduced 1 but it flill remains earth, 
except the earth of mercury, which will 
become meralliaed by fire alone. But^ 
as the Do£kor himi'elf fays, by adding 
frefli nitrous acid, you may go on with 
the proccfi till the earth is all confumed, 
fbrmkng the pureft air, and no nitrous 
air, then I would afli what has become 
of the phlogifton of the acid i If the ni- 
tious acid is added to the volatile oils, 
or the volatile alkali, they will generate 
what Dr. Prie(\ley calls dephlogiAicated 
nitrous air, when cxpofed to heat ; then 
the volatile oils, and volatile dkali, 
inu(i» like the fixed alkali and earth, be- 
come hxcd in the procefs, decompound*

confideringtberearguinenttyMr. Urban, 
we need not be furr^Ted at the Tapour 
of water, io Dr: Prich.e|r's experimental 
tcquirin^ condenfation in cold water. 

Dr. PrieHley alfo Bndi that copper 
vefTelt are badly calculated forprsducing 
air; and here alfo he it a-^round in 
point of explanation; but, if he will 
attend to my theory, he will find that 
the acid of the water, inftead of being 
employed in the produftion of air, will 
be attra6^ed by the copper, which it will 
form into a calx, copper being much 
more readily calcined by acids than any 
other metal. 

But flits liitle pamphfetof Dr.Prieftley'f 
contains nil) more ftrikingabfurdities; he 
even makes wa.cr to be formed of the fame 
bodies (pure air aad phlogifton), and of 
the fame proponions that Mr. Cavendifh 
from bis miflaken experiments fayt that 
the nitrous acid is formed of i and that 
fire compounds and decompounds them. 
I repeat it, Mr. Urban, it is a painful 
though neceiTary talk for me thus to enu- 
merate and to refute all the celebrated 
nonfenfe of modirn chemiftrv t but it it

cvLt* it is properly attended to, will enable 
^hyrician& io the treatment of Tariout

And hmce, I prefume. It is, thatfome

SOMS (uppofe, that two rows upon a 
ridge cannot pioducc fo much as 
cqvi«dmaot rows drilled at 9 inches. 

Mr. Toll dates leaving a produce of 
it ooBCes per yard, of double rows, per 
ridg^ of 3 feet 6 tocliet broad, if the 
fidget be 4 feet i inches, or 56 iDchea 
broad. In that breadth there are fix 
dfifit at 9 inches, or three double rows. 

At tkiere are 1996 ysrds of this breadth 
b one acrCf aficr dedufting head ridges, 
fuppofe the equal dilUnt rows produced 
40 buflKls per acre, dividing tne ounce 
in 40 buihels by the ^ards, the produce 
is f I per yard of the ridge, or 41 d. oz. 
per yard of the double rows. 

In icveral late publications the pro* 
duce oif horfe^hocd wheat is more. In 
the 4th volume of Bath papers is men« 
doned an inftance where a fiogle row 
prodaceu 7} oz. per yard, which is ac 
the rate of 15! oz. per double row, and 
ibis was from very (mall grain. 

1 have Irom frequent experiments bad 
upwards of 18 buihels per acre upon 
fidget of 4} feet bread, which is at the 
ratr of H ounces pec jard of deublC' 



rows.*— And I have had four fucceHtve 
crops of horfc-hoed wheat without ma- 
nure, and wirhout the crops declining. 

And befidet Mr. Tull's, who had 13 
fttcceffive crops of wlieat without ma- 
nure, there are a great many inflancet 
of faceeiRve crops that could be men* 
tioBed.<— And it is Ihewn* by undoubted 
anthonty, that the ezpence of horfe* 
hoed grain is much lefa tnan broad -caft. 
Tm Society of Arts, near thirty years 
ago, oflFeied premiums for a eomparifon 
between horic-hoing and broad-caft) 
bot I find no premiums offered for expe* 
timentt of the horfe*lK>ing iinee tnac 
time : hue, (ince the contriraooe of fome 
late drills, there have been feveral for 
equal diflant rows, which was the me* 
thod Mr. Toll firft pradifcd. And, tiosr 
that dfillt ef a better conftrttAion aro 
contrived, espeHmcnts of his other me- 
thod* of horte*hoeing might now bt 
iftore properly aeeirted. 

I wss at a lofs to find a drill machine 
for my experiments, as they jrere made 
bcfere the Ricv. Mr. Cooke and othen 
were known ; therefore I was under thai 
aeceffity to have oiie made, which wat 
far ffOA beiftg accurate ia the delivery of 
thefted. 

I have had the cnriofitvto look at moR 
of the laie-invemod drilfs, to (ce if they 
were a^pced or proper for hoire-hoeingi 
hftt found all I have feen were contrived 
for Mr.Tu!l*s firft method of drilling 
equi-diftant rows only. But, lately^ f 
have met with one that is adsptcd' for 
horfe>hoting two or three rows, and for 
horfcoboeiag the fpaces bctwreo the 
rows. 

And a hand-hoe^ «nth which rhcy m3^r 
be hoed much more expeditiouily ttun- 
with common hoes. 

This machine is ilfo adaptedior drill- 
ing equi diAant rows at 9 inchek^ or 
oth«r diftanees, with harrows and hoes. 
To me, this machine appears the moft 
fimple, and the b.A I have met with, as 
ic anfwers for both thcfe meihods of 
drilling. 

1 therefore fend thefe remaiks fi>r in- 
fertiott in your Magazine, if you mav 
think proper to publifh them, for the 
information of thofe perfons wl.o may 
have a defire to make trial of the hortc- 
hoeing huibandry, (which Mr. Tull 
fays was hii fecond and bed m%:liO(i), 
that they may not experience the lame 
inconvenience I did for want of a proper 
diill, which may now be had ac bo%

^ith regard to times and fcafons), of any 
dioccfan, ahfit invidia, that ever prcfidcd 
©ver your church, arc, with great defe- 
rence and fubmilTion, laid at your feet. 
They were made under the aufpiccs of 
my lae learned and much honoured pa- 
tron, Biftiop Green, to svh )m I had the 
honour of imparting them, now many 
years ago, at Buckdcn ; and hr was 
pleafed to pcrufe, and, as 1 flattered my- 
lelf, to appiove them. 

** I call ihcra by no better name thrn 
CplUffiottJ, though brougl>t into a read- 
able form ; becaufe noihing^tchis diftance 
of time can poHibly be learned of Bifhop 
Groffwtcfte and his hiftory but what mufl 
be drawn from books and MSS; and, 
what is a greater difparagemtnt to rhe 
work, my piivate ilaiion, as a country 
clergyman, would not permit me to have 
much accefs to public lilirarics; but the 
materials were chirfly to be (ought for ia 
a book-rocm, which, you will cafily fup- 
pufe, cannot be very richly or amply fur- 
nifiicd/* 

Bifliop G. lived in one of the moft la- 
mentable fjeriods of the EogMh confli- 
iution, both in church and Hate, jufl after 
king John had refigncd his k<ngdoms to 
the pope, and received ihtm agatn as a 
fee of the papacy at an annual iribuce. 
His young (on, Henry HI. wa> forced 
to trtad in the fteps of his father, and 
take the kingdom on the fame terms; 
fwearing fealty and doing homage lo the 
pope ; infomuch that the prelacy cf G. 
began and concluded in this lat^ re gn, 
will afford us a concife though clear ic- 
prcfcDtation of the mo<ie in wMch the 
popes and their agents condu6Ud their 
ill- acquired and now unbounded power; 
and, at the fame time, of the intiepiduy 
and ref^itude of the biihop^ in lefifting 
to the utmoft thefe ufurpatious as far as 
he was concerned. Though not engaged 
in the public bufinefs of the Hate or otlier 
woildly attairs, he condufVed lu^ cxten- 
five dioccfe with the clo(ell attention and 
unremitting application; and all his dif- 
putes vvith the pope, the king, the nobi- 
lity, the abbots, or others, terniinattd 
iuccefsfully by the clcarncfs of his head, 
^joined with that natural courage, con- 
Aancy, and (irmr.crs of ir.ind, fur vvl.ich 
be Is fo much ceicbiatcd. 

The precifc year of his birth is rot 
known; it was probably about A. D. 
1175, of low and obfcure, but honeir, pa- 
rents, at Stradbrook, Suttolk. lie fiudied 
at Oxford, and there laid a founJaiion of 
Creek and other literature, which he fo 
cmJocDtly dJfpUyed in his numcio\i» and 



various writings, and which qualified him 

to become the pitron of literary men. 

He was a fhort time in the fervice of the 

biOiop of Herefori, but, on his death, 

returned to his (ludies till noticed by 

that discerning |Tc:iate, Hugh dc Welles, 

who pave him a ptebcnd io'the church of 

Lincoln. He was archdeacon of Cheftcr, 

1 2 10; of Wilts, 1270; of Leictllcr 

till 1232; and piebeiid of P.mpingh.im, 

Lincoln di'Kcfe. He K.ok his doMoi *s 

degree before 1224, was rt6Vor of Ad)- . 

ley,N r:i»amp:on, 1225. On the death of 

dc Wclle^, i2}4> he was e'eftcd by the 

chapter of Lincoln, and the king readily 

conlei.ted to their choice of Kim for their 

b(hop. He was con(c6rated' in rhe 

abbey-church of R a;ling l>y aichbi(hv>p

in that fee, we muft refer to his bio^ia-

proved by the mention of him in the prophet 
Kzekiel; and by the apoftle St. James, where 
lie is recommended to us as an example of

c iUimniaioi-s, not being ^ble to And crimes 
among us, have dared to compare usrto the 
Medicis, to an EngUfh Elizabeth, to an An- 
toinette, and to a Charlotte Cord6. Nature 
has, witheut doubt, produced a monfter 
which has deprived us of the Friend of the 
People : but are we anftverable for that 
crime } Was Cord^ a member of our foci- 
ety ? We are mc»re getierous than the men ; 
our fex has produced but one monfter,' 
whilft, for thefe four years paft, we havo 
been betrayed and aflairmated by numberlcfa 
mon'^ers of the mafcuhns fex. Our riglits 
arc thofe of the people, and, if we are op.

o\ Not-folk. Thefe letters contain many cu- 
rious and authentic ftate anecdotes, relating 
not only to Norfolk but to the kingdom in 
general, as to the wars in France. 1 wo vo- 
lumes of them were publiibcd in 1787, 410 
(fee vol. LVII. pp. 165, 472), and dedi- 
cated, by permiflion, to his Majefty, who 
rewarded the merit of the editor with the 
faonour of knighthood. Two others ap- 
peared in 1789, with notes and iUuilrations 
by Sir John ; and we have the pleafure to 
learn that a dfch is Icfc ready for tlie prefs. 
He was the author of a very interefting let- 
ter to Mr. Urban, " On the Poft and Port- 
age of Letters, and on the Priviltga and 
Modes of Franking Letters" (LIV. 644). 
Though he contributed nothing to the Ar- 
ch;eol(gin of the Society of Antiquaries, he 
"wns a benefactor to them by drawing up 
" Three Chronological Tables" of their 
members, which were printed in a qtiarto 
pamphlet, i?84, for tlie ufe of the StHiiety. 
But his merit tvas not confined to his li- 
brary. As an adtive, know-ng, and upright 
magiftraie, a z^alou5, waim, difmtereftcd 
friend, and in all tl^e duties of focial life, he 
has Irfc few equals ; and his I«fs is univer- 
fally deplored, even by thofe whofe condu^ 
fais example reproached; and the fe verity of 
his viiiue awed. If theinquifitiveaijtiquarjr, 
the cle.ir, faithful, and accurate writer, be 
juftly va'ued by literary ch.ira£ters ; the in- 
telligent and upright magiHraie, by the in- 
habitants of the c(>uiity in which he refided ; 
the informing and p'eafing companion, the 
waiTu ai d ftcady friend, the hontft and 
wonliy man, tlie g^M^U and exemplary Chril-

whoTe name oipun appears in yoar vo*

ner, that her Ladylbip lodged, for fome 
time, at his houl'e, and left with him 
her Letters in queflton, to be publifhcd 
after her death : - when that event took 
place, he thought it was but decrot to 
acquaint the family, and know if they 
had any objedions they had} and a 
segociacion was opened for feitling the 
douceur he was to receive for delivering 
up the copy s tois l«fted fix months { and, 
juft as he bad received the money, the 
Letters were poblilhed, but, as he aifu- 
red me, entirely without his knowledge 
(though the family could not help fui- 
pe£ting otherwife), only that the date of 
the preface from Venice was an im^gi*

marks of great antiquity. The Lord 
Chief" Barou's houfc has nothing remark- 
able about it, except its pljin and hum- 
ble appearance, which would befptak 
it to have been always the refidcnce of 
a farmer. He was much attached to his 
native village, where, among many 
other arls of ch^irity and bencficen<e, 
lie fo'inded and endowed an hofpital for 
14 } (or widows of the communion of 
ihc Church of EnjiUnd. wlfo hate each 
^.12 per annum, and a fcparatc houi'c." 
By a codicil to his will, be gave the rcfi- 
duc of his perfonal property for the en- 
dowment; the value oT which imovy fo 
much improved, that Nfr. M. fays it is 
]ir>ped the allowance will be increafed. 
Four of the houfes were built by Dr. 
Wiglcy and Tho. Boorhby cfq. the 
chief baron's executors, and the re- 
maining ten by Mr. Boothby in 1761.

In D'-atlon's Political Index, it ap-

What was the rcfult of this perm if* 
(inn we do not learn; bur, as his name 
dbes not appear in the Journals of the 
Parliament among thofe who paid a

hl» high fpirit, impatient of reftraint, 
difdamcd to accept the proffered mercy; 
for, in Odober 1649, wc Bnd him, in 
the capacity of a lieutenant-cotonel, in 
the Well of Eoglaod, with fir John B«rk« 
ley, foliciting the king's friends to rife 
in arms ; where being accidentally dif- 
covered by a peafant, be was apprehen- 
ded by the committee of the county, 
and fent prifoner, fir A to Truro, after- 
waids to Pcndeonis Caflle, and in tbp

July 9, 1650, an a£t palfed, for the 
trial of Col. Slingiby, with fir John 
Stowell and four other perfons, before 
the High Court of Juftice conftituted 
by authority of parliament, of which 
Richard KtbU was the uteGdent. The 
event. of this trial, fo far as relates to 
Col. Slingiby, it not recorded ; but, as 
it it evident chat he obtained his liberty, 
it may be prefumcd that be was permit- 
ted to compound for his. delinquency ; 
as was certainly the cafe of fir John 
Stowell, which i& fully ftated in the 
Journals of the Houfc of Commons, 
under the hands of l^eble and zo of his 
brethren, dated April ai, 1651. Col. 
Slingiby continued fome years longer in 
coDtiaement; but lived, as appears p. 29, 
to contribute his alfillancc in eflfcAiog 
the Reftor<itiun of his Royal MaiUr.

find St. Paul warning his Gentile con-

It may not be improper to obferve, 
on the authority of Mr. Paikhurfl, who 
confirms his aficrtion by the moft in- 
controvertible arguments, [See Htb.

Mr. Urban, Dover Ma^ch, 8. 
Ssn of thtliynt favoured your read- 
ers with a vorabalary of \Vords ufed 
by the natives of Northumberland ; in 
fome of which, I think, he h^s mif- 
taken the mcaniiig. I therefore take 
the liberty of (ending my explication of 
ihcm ; and alfo, of adding a few more 
words in the Son of the Tyne's voca- 
bulary : 

Prt/i/, a fountain. No. Vant figiiifies the 
ctftcrn, which receives the wade-water ful- 
ling therefrom. 

Snccb^ a latch to the door. It fticiild be 
wrote Jnecly being pronounced Iiard. 

Smafitty a fmall raifed fiuit-pic. No. It 
fignifies any thing larger than a)mmon. If 
there were two f*r three pies upon a table, 
of different fizes, the largeft of them would 
be called a Jmajker. 

^kel, a wooden pail. With this diffinr- 
ence, the diameter of a fleel at the top and 
bottom are the fame. 

Staitbf a itorehoufe for coals. No. Stuitb, 
whjrf. 

Reeky fmoke. i 

Racking-crvikf A crafi? or crook over the 
fire. It ihould be reekins-crook, as hang- 
ing in the reek or fmoke. 

Additional Woilds.^ 
SUt, a bolt if a door. 
Tiggin, a fmall wooden milk meafui'e^ 
holding near a pint.

ilrike a fmall wooJen bowl with. ' 
Shinnejf'hdhf a $\me fo called. 
Futbcr, a large csrt of coals. 
Ctpe,' to change oho thing for another. 

If I were to hazard my opinioo, Mr. 
XTVban, upon the qfOery m Mr. Brand's 
Hiflory of Newcaitte; viz. whether the 
name (Stock-bridge) be derived from 
felling flock- filh' tliere, it would be, 
that it certainly derived its name front 
» matter of greater confcq'ucnce. 1 ra- 
ther Cuppofe the bridi.'e took its name 
from the Jlock or taflU, which pafiecf 
over ii to the market near thereto, ap- 
prcpiiated for that purpofe.

THERE is nothing which adds more 
genuine luflre to the Englifli cba- 
raAer than the conftaney and firmnefs' 
which has, at various times, been ma- 
nifefted HI the honourable condudi of the 
judges of the land. 

Sir James Haies^ a juflice of the 
common pleas m. the reign of Ed- 
ward* Vf. is a twofold inflance of unal- 
terable attachment to the laws and con- 
flitution of his country. Although a 
zealous Protcflant, he could not be pre- 
vailed upon by his p^rty to oppofe the 
fucceifiun of Queen Mary, hecaufe her 
right to the crown was fupported by law 
and juftice. . The fame fenfe of doty 
obliged thii upright judge to put in tx- 
ecution, at Q^een NJary'k fucceli'ion,- 
the laws agarnfl fayii?^ Mafs, feverai 
priefls being indi£Ved before him at Maid** 
done in Kent. For this latter condu£^, 
he fell a'vidiim to the perfecuting zeal 
of the queen ; and was not only remo- 
ved from the bench, where be fat in the 
former reign, but committed to cUfe 
cullody, and treated withfuch feverity, 
that he fell into a frcnay, and killed 
himlclf, A. D. 1553.

Mr. Urban, Fib. 25. 

IN the fourth edition «f Mr. Wynd- 
ham's Teur in Wa^es, p. 4s, he gives 
the following account of a murder com- 
mitted in Wates, in the neighbouihood 
of Llar.dilo Vaur, of which 1 dp not 
find anv meotion in your volumes. 

«< Wil'.iams, afliop-keeperinthe town 
of Llandovery, was fuppofed to have a 
criminal connexion with the wife of a 
Mr. Powell, who lived between that 
town and Llandilo. Prevented bv the 
jealoufy and vigilance of the hufband 
from continuing his adultery, he formed 
the daring plan of removing the obflacle 
to his defires. For this purpofe he en- 
gaged a fct uf lawlefs villains, and kept 
them in a conftant ftate of ebricty till an 
opportunity fliould o^er of putting his 
murderous fchemc in execution. The 
intention of Williams and his crew was 
publicly fufpe£ted, not only by Powell, 
but by the whole Dcighl>ourhood. How- 
ever, he perfevered ; and, in the time of 
a deep fnow, and late in the night, the 
alFallins attacked the houfe, forced their 
way into it, and, furprifmg Mr. Powell 
fitting at his tabic, put an end to his ex* 
iftt nee with many circum(^ances of ex- 
aggerated cruelty. Powell had only time 
to exclaim, on feeing them, " My GotI ! 
I am a dead man ; ny enemies are upon 
ine!*' 

<* The murder perpetrated, the accefTa- 
rit^ quietly retreated 10 their rtfpeftive 
employments ; and WilUamb, the princi- 
pal , coniinued for fome time at his fhop 
in Llandovery unmolcfttd. However, 
the report of the airiflinaiioii fpreading to 
zrtty p,i:i uf die coun(ryi Williams a( 



nnorgan(hii*e militia were ordei'ed as a goard 
oyer them for the night they remained ia 
tha: town. The next morning it was difco-. 
vered, on the prifoners be>ng muftered^ that 
one was miffing. Though the prifoner miff- 
ing went by another ntme, he was founi! to 
be the noted Williams, who was the princi- 
pal in the murder of Mr. Powell, fume years 
ago, in Caermarthenlhire. Scouts were fent 
out all over the country to retake him*, but . 
without effiedt He was taken prifoner as a 
common failor in a French privateer.*' 

This note, however, is without foun • . 
dation, as i had the following particulars 
from a gentleman who was profieflionally 
employed in the bufinefs io which die 
death of Williams was proved. 

When Williams made hit efcape, ht 
went to Dunkiik, where he afTumed the 
name of Thomas. About a year after, 
his brother was in a colTee-houfe to Lon* 
don, when two perfons in a box obfer- 
ved, that he mud be a near relation of 
Thomas who was drowned at Dunkirk. 
He went to them, and aflted fome qucA 
tions ; and, foon after, lie and his mo- 
ther went over to Dunkirk, and were 
informed by one Walker, who wat * 
fchoolmafler theie, that he beeauM ac- 
quainted with a man, who called himfelf 
Thomas, foon after his arrival, by hit 
bringing the children of the man with 
whom he lodged to fchool ; that, at firftt

on which we at firfl had travelled. The

backed by t ecp and hanging woodf^fur*

ca led Duniquaich, clothed in pinet, and 
pviamidal in f« rm, beheld over, and re* 
fle^'ed by, the ibining waters of Loch-

alfoidcd hence a very beautiful and inte»

It was in this ftage that we journeyed 
tbioui>h Glencrow, a romantic bcttom 
of 4i>out two miles in length, no where

FEW queilions tn geography or hif- 
tory have occafioned iuch diver* 
fity of opinions as that relating to the ' 
04)hir and Tarlhtfli of the Old Tetta- 
ment. That clafi of writers, who fup- 
pofe them to have been in Africa, is 
fubdivided into feveral others: fome 
place them on the coaft of the Mediter- 
ranean, fome in Ango!a, and others, 
with more probability, on the South-eall 
coaft of that Continent. Of the latter, 
one party has 6aedon fume of the Afri- 
can iQands i another on the coaft of 
Melinda^' near the Equator | and a 
third, and very large clafs, prefers So- 
fala. Mr. Bruce has adopted both the 
laft-mentvoned opinions, placing Tar- 
ihifl) on the coaft of. Mehnda, and 
Ophir at Sofala. (From i Kings x. aa. 
and a Chron. ix. zi.) It has been gene- 
ra^\y concluded by the leained writers 
**/jo have difcuffed this queftion, tho' 
peihaps without fufBcicnt reafon, that 
M Beet could not ptrfotrn a woyag'c fiom

voyage to Tarfliifli w^s lon^ liace up- 
ticed, as aflPording a ftrong prefu nptiom 
againft the ctaims.of either Melmda or 
Sofala; both wbich appear, oo a firft 
view, to be too near the Red Sea, to 
require fo lonj^ a vnvage. Mr. Bruce, 
on the contrary, maintains that this ve- 
ry circumftfince affords a deci(i«e proof, 
that Ophir was at Sofala. His argu- 
ment, which it certainty recommended 
by novelty at leaA, has been much ap- 
p.auded, and pronounced by very ab^ 
judges to be abfolutely deciftvc of the' 
queftion. 

Dr. RobenfoD, in his *<Htftorteal 
Difquiiition concerning ancient India," 
fpcalcs of this queftion, and of Mr. 
Bruce's difquiHtion, in the following 
terns : 

"In what region of the earth we 
•* Ihould fearch for thcfe famous pons, 
•* which furniflied the navy of Solomon 
** with the various commodities eoume- 
« rated by the facred biftorians, is an 
*• inquiry that has long exercifbd the in- 
<< duftry of learned men. They wcfv 
« early fuppofed to be (iiuated in 
« fome part of India, and the Jews 
'< were held to be one of the nations 
** which traded to that country. But 
** the opinion more generally adopted 
** is, that Solomon's fleet, nfttr pafling 
*< the ftraits of Babelmandeb, held their 
" courfe along the Sourh-weft coafl of 
« Africa, as far as the kingdom, of Sc- 
<* fala, a country celebrated for its rich 
" mines of gold and filver, and abound- 
<< ing in all the other articles whrch 
<' compofed the c4rgoes of the Jewifli 
« fliips. This opinion, which ttic ac- 
<< curate refcarches of M. D'Anville 
** rendered highly probable, feems now 
** to be cftabliflied with the utmoft cer- 
« tainty by a late learned traveller; who, 
** by his knowledge of the monfoons 
*' in the Arabian gulf, and his attention 
*< to the ancient mode of tiavigatioo^ 
*' both m that fc^, and along the Afri* 
** can coaft, has not only accounted for 
V the extraordinary length of time, 
'* which the ftccts of Solomon took in 
" going and returning, but has (hewn, 
*' from circumftancei mentioned coo- 
** cerning the voyage, that it was not 
*' made to any place in India.*'

Y(»ur correfpondcnt fcems to admit, high tide of nftitious loyalty which 

what even his alTurancc is afliamed to \va» excited by a temporary delufion, 

deny, that Dr. Gedden's noble patron (o did all other fenfible and difintercfted 

might be conunt to take his flation in men, of erery pirtv , and tvtn its au- 

focietv according to his talents. He is thors art now a.{hamed of it.

It h the firft lime we have heard of a 

glowing fpirit darting through the p'i> 

vcrty and tamenefs nfc verfe : this is as 

great a paradox as it would he, tu (ay 

that J. M. 's Arcngih confifts in the 

_ weaknefs uf his >indL-i landing, and his 

cite a prejudice ag^iind Dr. Geddcs, for wifdom in the folly of his remarks. If 

his having exprtfTed an opinion, that Dr. Gcddei approved of the firA Ffen;;ii 

nobility ought not to be hereditary, revolution, fo did every ttue Biiioo . ic 



fociety 

confcious. th it Dr. Geddes's patron de- 
rives his chief diflin£iion from the fame 
fource as he did who bad b ten an em* 
per or ivt/bout bis croivn. But your 
corrtfpot^deot intimates, that thts doc- 
trine may not be acceptable to all our 
great families j and endeavours to ex-

When your correfpondcnt can piove, 
that virtue is a natural heritage, ur an 



is probable that it would have proved 
i'uccefs^ul, ami have prevented the hor- 
rid crimes which have fmce difgraccu 



unneceiTary qualification, to thofc who humanity, had not a weak monarch 



make laws, and fct examples to man- 
kind, no man will be a warmer advo- 
cate for ao hereditary nobility than Dr. 
Geddes. 

When Dr. Geddes aiferts, that church 
eAablifhments have been a continual 
fource of evils bcth to church and 
flate, he advances an unanCwcrable ar- 
gument againft the abufe of church 
cftabliihtncnts. When he reje£ls a fal. 
jible judge of religious coutroveifies, 
and acknowledges no authoiity bu: the 
Scriptures, eVery unprcjudic-d man 
mu!t approve his dtcifion. When he 
deriies ihat the fiifliop of Rome is fu- 
pi-rior to any other bifliop, or to him- 
jclf, by divine inHitutioo, he certainly 
r!id r.DX think of rot)thin£ the picjudi- 
ccs of the Uomtn C^tholtcs. Were he 
capable of condcfccndinj: to footh the 
pitjudicrs of eiihcr Catholics or Pro- 
tel*Miits, he might indeed draiu monfj 
out oj tbiir pockets p but he would be 
unwjfihy to be an intcrpicter of the di- 
vine oracles. 

No man is fit for that taHc, but one 
of a coKpreiunfive underilanding, ex- 
teuHve erudition, acute judgement, li- 
beral icncinicnt, iiiflLxiblc intc^.nty, 
and indu'peudcnt^fpirit. That Dt. Ged- 
des poflcfTcs tbefe (|u^ltRrations in an 
eminent degree is . proved bv the con- 
current tcAimonies of the bc-ft judges. 
It is well known, that he js not ready 



been guilty of perjury, through the 
perfuafion ot bigoted Romijb priejis. 
Our unfortunate J aincs the Second owed 
his rum to the latpc caufe.

tertain prtrpoile (lions againft Dr. Ged - 
dcb*s traniliti m; theft prepf-ircllioiis, if

ced to his blind adherence to Popery ; 
ami ic is well known that Poi>eiy prc'crs 
its own L'itin tranilation, not only to 
all other tranfl*tions, but even t » the 
original iifclf. — As to Dr. G.-ddcs's 
opinion, how far the Aprftles wcic in- 
fpircd, he himfelf has given, oi will 
give, every nccelfury fatisfadion en 
that head ; but 1 fuppofe your corre- 
fpondcnt would not ivilh it to be admit- 
ted, that rhcy were alwiys under the 
innucnce of divine iufpiraiion; for, we 
kfit^.v that St. Pxul oppofcd St. Peter, 
ti>c tutelar Saint of Roman Cathuiic;», 
to his face. — It is true that Dr. Geddes 
has underraken a more than mortal 
worki may Heaven alRH him in iti ac- 
compliflimcnt ! The tirH volume has 
long been before the woi Id ; and, did it 
contain any material imperteMions,

Mr. UxBAN, Wimchtfiir^ March i^ 

I SHALL offer no apology for con« 
(iderine ihe letter^ relative to thp 
controverfy between myfelf wHA Dr. 
Geddes, the firft part of which appear- 
ed in your U(l Number, under whatever 
fignature it may terminate, as the ge- 
nuine production of the Do6lor himitlf. 
I have already atiigned a caufe, which 



#»/ of tbsir pocktts. 

J. M. feems to thinlc it a proof of 
lenity in the Fopifli Biihops, that they 
did not prevent Pr. Qeddet's Tranfla- 
tion from being prittted and fold $ this 
is making a yirtu^ of neceflity ; they 
^ewed their teeth, "bat dared not bite t 
for, as to their cenfure, it betravs a wifl,, 
aot a power, to do mifchief. At a pre- 
ventive, I tru(lt it is fu^cient to ef • 



{H>re their injuftice to the good fen(e ^f ;rei;ms to be admitted, why this gentle* 



jthe Britilh nation ; for, 1 hope that Ca- 
thoUcf, as well as Ps^teftants, are be- 
come too eaJight«Bcd^ to be duped by a 
lew feMilh men, who fet up their own 
interefted opinions in oppofition to the 
word of God, in oidcr 4$ jiranu mongj 
aui of ibitr potkets. 

But, if Dr. Geddes difdains to flutter 
Cuperftition, he abhois tl^ idea of couc- 
(tcaancing infidelity. He fcorns aliKc 
^ pbilofopbtf* s flonti which has filled 
the pockets of Frtncb tvits, and thu 
which has enriched the ccffers o( Rtmijb 
Bigotry. 

J. M. acknowledges thatpr. Geddes 
has gi^eat taicnts ; he has alfo great 
temper; yet I advife J. M. not to pro- 
voke him too far, otherwife he wiil find 
him, as he fufipcCls, to be a trimwur. 

At the conciu(ion of his letter, J. M. 
givesa(peciroen of moderation, in words 
if di made ufe of by the Apodoiic Vicars; 
and then, with ujiblufhing front, alks 
if there ii any thing inquiTicorial in fuch 
language. By this he would wi(h others 
to believe what he does noc beliefe 
himfclf. In (hurt, 

— pergit ad imuro 
<^ualis ab inccjjKo proceflerit, et fibi«oollat« 

However I may differ from J. M. in 

other refpe'As, I perfcQly agree with him 

in this,— that it is not natural to ezpe£t 

«heRoman Catholic Bifliops will employ 

a pricft, «. ho refufes to xunfuU bis own

Having mentioned the membtrs of generally fofrens men's manners, and 



the Scotch C</nvention, 1 canuot htlp 
exprefling my Airprise, that fo much 
fliould have been ikid about the fuppo- 
fed iDJuflice of fending their Honours 
to the land of coavi6is, when, 'n my 
opinioDy the only ferioui quiAinn was 
concerning (he propriety of adding to 
the puniihnnent of that unhappy defcrip- 
lion of men, by mingling fuch fi e- 
brands of (ocicty amongft them. At 
all cventty I hope that Mr. High Con- 
fiable Barringtnn may be allowed a 
double lalary. if, after the imp-trtation 
of the prcfent cargo of {edition, he 
iiiccced in pfeferving the peace of the 
colony. Yours, Itc. J. M r. 

Mr. UtBAV, March I. 

WHEN men form themfelvcs into 
dubt with intent'on to mike 
known their political or rtligious opi- 
nion^, it behoves them to choofc a name 
that mav not awaken the fears or diflike 
nf- their neighbours. The foe ety of J9««/ 
ViVamii^ who, it is faid, foimrrly met 
at the Rofe tavern, gave no oft'^nce by 
a (Turning the name of thi freb mud 
EASY mtiler tbt Rofr i nor have I ever 



leads thcin to love ^nd cAecm fuch as are 
otherwifc refpe^able, though tlicy niay 
not agree in religious opinions with 
thcmfclvrs. 

I am old enough to remcmf)er the rc« 
hellion of the year 1745, *"^ ^■' ^^^'^ 
known how ftrcnglv many clergymen of 
one of the midlano counties exprtlfcd their 
wi flics for its fuccefs : attached to the 
ca»jfc of ihc Prttendtr (though thcv had 
taken thr (aihs co K.ii.g George the Se- 
cond for the livings ih-jy enjoyed), they 
wore plaid ribbons to their watches, and 
toafled in all companies Church and 
Ktmg ; and they m^ide 00 fecret of their 
avcrfi.^n to the Rrvlutia* and the Man9^ 
Vir fuc'cfllion. On that account, I then 
difliked the toafl ; and my objtAibns 
have iince incieafcd from rcflc^ing on 
the alifuruiiv of the King being placed 
helow tlu- Church, though by law he is 
the biad of it. 

During the life of the wonhy and re* 
fpc^Jabe Arthur Onflow, efq. Speaker 
in iive parliameuts of the Houfe ofXom- 
mons, I was a frequent gueft at his ta« 
ble ; and I have dined occaflonally ^t 
that of the prefent and every other arch- 
bifliop of Canterbury during the lall 30 



heard that the elith (of painters, 1 fup- 

pofc), who called ihemfelves Kntgbts •/ years. At Mr Onflow's table, and at 

tbtyfirti/bt ever excited any other paflii>ii the Archbifliop's, the firfl roall was, and 



in the bread of others than what arofe 
from ridicule. 

HarmicTs as the foregoing clubs mi^ht 
have been, there are itih-r^ uhich luve 
a tendency to kindle a.-iimcjfHy where at 
prcfent there may be none, or to keep 
alive a jca'oul'y which miglit otiierwifc 
have lul^fidcd. I am led to make liiefc 
reflexions from readine* in a London 
news-paper, within thd': few davs, an 
advcrtilement, of which the following is 
a liteial copy :

1 am pcrfuadcd, Mr. Urban* that a

Inftantly took fire, and fpread all over 
the pbcc ; every thing went to rack a:\d

gious houfcs themfelves, where nothing 
hid ever been heard but the. mod pious 
exhortation^ (like thofe of Dr. Vicefimus

of this day, you deliver to the Commilfioners, 
as foon as poliible, an account of the exaA 
ilale of your propeity in merchandizes, of 
bills of exchange or cmJit in foreign coun- 
tries; and you arc required, within two

the Puhlic Ti eifun , which after it ftfU h:we

pitlsly forbidden to t.ike any more paper

e;s to draw uprn you, without having cer- 
tihe > to Tie ComnulTion as to the employ-

(Signed) R ." 

T fubmit therefore, that it i* cear, the 

\icw, nature, and cffc6V of their con- 

ttr.ts, i<i th\y, th^t whoever has the 

power of d'a^ving bills ol exchange—

f/M '^ whoever now potfclie* auy oi 



thcfc on his indiridual accounr, fhifl 
deliver them up inHantly to the State, 
that tln.y may become the public pro- 
peity of France* and he fhiil receive ia 
lieu of them alfignats, at par, as a full 
p^^meot anrf equivalent for chat which 
he thus transfers to the State. Now, I 
think, it is obvious, this unites twp 
di(lin6l charaf^ert equally clear; the 
one, a robberv of the citizens of France, 
bf maicine them, whether they will or 
DO, transfer that which is yalaable for 
tht which they may not think valuable 
at all. They are ctinftrained to take at 
pa" that which at times has not been 
worth one-fcventh of par. 

The next thing is, that all debts ovv* 
ing from individuals living in countries 
at war with them, are to go to ftrengthen 
tht finevv^ of carrying on that war againft 
themselves. I think it is obvious, to 
prevent the effects of fuch a tranlaAion, 
that it is our duty to pay a certain regard 
to our own intereft» and our own prfiier- 
vation ; and if they were out of the 
queOion, a regard is due to the prefer^^ 
vation ,of mercantile good faith, in order 
to prevent our traasferringyby this mix* 
ture of fraud and force, the payment of 
their lawful debts from (he pcrfons who 
are entitled to them, to the Sute. As 
to'the general principles on this fubjed, 
I believe they arc known to every gen* 
tieman. On the abllr^^ p'lnciple o£ 
the law of nations, and, of this country, 
the payment of any debt owing to an 
alien enemy cannot be (uflained in time 
of war— that he cannot maintain an ac- 
tion for it— and the King might attach 
' it as belonging to an alien enemy, dut 
the mitigated praflice of modern times, 
from a dcfire to continue, even in a ftate 
of war, the benefits of mercantile inter* 
courle, which are for the advantage of 
individuals^, without intrenching on the 
public fafety, hafe long ago brought 
thefe principles in their full extent into 
difufe. 

But, though that practice is much to 
be applauded, when this ufe is made of 
it, yet, if inftead of anlwering the tirft 
end. which* I have ftated, that is — by 
prcfcrving the intered of individualt, 
fubjedk to the limitation of not dircdiy 
intrenching on the iaterefts of the State^ 
it inverts both thufe propolition^, by 
plundering and deftroying property, and 
fruHratiog the attempts to obierve good 
faith on your part : and on the other

IF any ^f our readers are f licitous 
for X complete antidote aesinfl the rape

tnem the perufaY of thefe volumes ; not 
that we thirk the authors betray my. 
vndur prejudice in favour of e(labli(hed 
governments rr cftabliflied opinions ; en 
the contrary, if there is a leaning ro any 
fide, it is to that of general liberty. In 
the relating of fa6ls, however, we mil (I 
do them the juflice to obferret that^ at 
far as we have been acquainted with the 
fUtc of atfairs on the Continent (and we 
have not been inattentive to them), thefe 
volumes are well defervin^ of the epithet 
impartiml^ which the authors have pre- 
fixed. 

The information appcnrs to have been 
colle£led from no common fuurces j 
many fubje6ls are placed in a new light, 
and the privats views of the different 
faflions in France are traced out with a 
clear and difcriminating eve. The re- 
flections which arc interfpcrfed are manlv 
aind judicious I and through the whole 
of this work there is an evident ttt\ for 
virtue and tclijjion. Wc feleft a few 
. exrraOs, to juftify thefe opinion<t.

■ vras is thus defcribed, and gifes rife to

When at the foot of tl>c fc.iff*»ld, the Mar- 
quis exclaimed, < Citizens, I die r.n innocent 
man. Pray for me.* The whole alTemhly 
trembled ; the executioner himfelf was 
overwhelmed with emotions of Rrief; the 
moft awful filencc eiifued for fonjc minute!:, 
aid was only broken by W\c intrepid fuflferer 
himfelf calling i.ut to the executioner to do 
his duty. After hanging the \ifiial time, his
