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.

SINCE I wrote the Account of our aOronomicAl Ohfervation^, your Mafi:<izine came ; 
in which there are inferted two difTcrent Obfcrvattons of the Ufl MoonN EcHpfe, and 
as they and we differ too much in our Obfcrvariont for a i^ood Aftronomcc to be reconciled, 
I thought proper to add ritis foUowinf^ Supplement to our Obfervarions. 

A% it proved clear both the preceding Days of the Eclipfe, at Noon, I took great Care 
to fet and adjufl a very good Regulator that a very ingenious Watch and Clock- maker 
keeps, and a good Eight-day Clock of IVTr. y. P. H*i, which } alfo compared half an 
Hour before the Edipfe began, and found them to a Second together to the Time, and I, 
and Mr.y. P, fj, and the Watch-maker, all a^ree^l to a Second, that the Beginning, at 
Newport, was predfely at 31' pad 7, (it cert^iinly is difficult to dettrmine the Beginnint; 
or End of a lunar EcUpfe to a Second or two] it waft extreamly clear during the Edipfe, 
and the End was obferved between 9h 58' i» and 9h 59' certainly, to that the Duration 
did not exceed ah 17' at mod. while your Correfpondenr, Mr. R, fViiddington, makes it 
ah 39', too much by two Minutes or two and a Qunter, and he mud certainty be out of 
the Time at Beginning, orelfe our Maps are extreamly bad ; as for bis faying hlr,M(yer*$ 
(as he calls him} Tables erring 4' 30'' at Middle, I make them err but 1'. 

The other Obfervation, by Mr, Mafiings, is certainly wrong, both Beginning and End, 
as may eaftly be feen by comparing it with otlier Obfcrvations } he making the Duration 
but ah 19' 50". 

I hope the above Gentlemen. will not take this am'fs, as it is Truth we ought to get 
M near as we. can, and if any Midake or Ovei fight Hiould prove in my Works« I hope 
that they, or any other of your Correfpondents, will bcfo kind as ro inform me of it, by

And bids the ftorms engage : 
Infierior foes are dafh'd, ajid loft. 
As breaks the white wave on her co.iH, 

Confum'd in idle rage. 
For alien forrows heaves her grn'rcns breall. 

She proffers peace to eafe a nvaPi pain,

WHEN youthful charms areblafled in the 
And rofy beauty finks into the tomb ; 
When all that's fweet in nature cannot fave 
A virtuous fair one from the yawning grave ; 
*Tis chridian and humane for us to (hare 
The deep-felt anguKh of a parent's care. 
Her bofom forrows^ foul-imbitter'd woe. 
Command tKe fympathetic tears to flow. 
So focn, in fpring of life, re(ign'd her breath. 
And dafp'd the fettery cold embrace of death. 
So have I feen the morn's fair regent rife. 
And add new glory to the fmillng (kies ; 
But foon the envious cloud/* obfcur'd his ray. 
And wrapt in fable gloom die rifing day. 
Hence learn, ye fair, prixe not thefe fading

whch awful death hit banner* doth difplay. 
Your lillies blaft, and all your charms decay.

Atltbingi at* *vain be wile, add kam to 

Vexation, pain, and trouble dwell below. 
True happinefit, the Chriftian^s glorioui prize, 
Refidet beyond the grave, above the flues. 
Wc ftiuggle here, thro^ a dark thorny way. 
Faint pi^turM life, and vifions of a day. 
Old age is wejry'd toil without repofe. 
And fourfcore years but multiply our woes. 
The world*c a pol, and death the welcome key ^ 
That from all forrows fets the pris'ner free. 
Adieu iniipid land, of low efteem. 
The virtuous foul {>orfues a nobler theme ; 
Religion rifes dreft in hcav*n-bom charms, 
Expells all fears, and viper death dilarms. 
That ftar of BetbPbem points the fliepherd*s 

To bowers of matchlefs blifs and endlefs day : 
Death wafts tts fafe to that Efyjun ftrre, 
Wheie fm-brew*d tempefts ne'er difturb lis 

How happy thofe who leave this troubled ftate 
Before they've felt the hurricanes of fate ? 
As ifew'rs, tt^nfplanted from a barven clime, 
t'lepar'd to flouriih in thofe fields fublime. 
Let none enquire, why thus, at any age. 
Our great Creator calls us off the ftage. 
Can dungeon'd captives fee what's done a- 

Or prifon'd fouls infped the ways of God ?

And fing in maniions of eternal love. 
Then thank my gracious God, who let me go 
So young, fo early, from a ftate of woe.

Preparauons, which goon very brifkly, not 
only in thisCountry, but alfo in Branden-

** The PruflTians will certainly have a 
glorious Army in the Spring, the Number

Imagination, and none are inrolled that are 
not very Arong, healthy young Fellows ; of 
this the King is fully fen(ible, and has fpoke 
of it at Table with the gieaiclt Satisfadion. 
'Notwithftanding which, frefli Orders have 
been lately fent toSilcfia, Bcilin, and Ma^-

mofl Diligence in the raifing and training up

^^g^^i 7<»»» 6. The Charter granted by 
the States General to our £a(l India com- 
pany the Sthof Auguft 7730, for the Term 
of 30 Years, being expired, their High 
Afighrtneffes, by a Piacart ifTued the 31 A of 
laft Month, and fince fent to the refpe^live 
Provinces of the Union, liave judged it pro- 
per to prolong provifionally the faid Charter 
for one Year. 

By the laft Letters from Prince Ferdinand's 
head Quarters at Uflar, of the 29ih paft, we 
have an Account of an AtTair that paflTcd on 
the 23d at HeihgtnfUdc, where Gen. Luck- 
ner, who was polled there with a Corps of 
between 3 and 40CO Men, was attacked hy 
a Body of 10,000 trench under the Cum- 
luand of CuuiiC Bro^liu, The Tovvm b^ iii j 

neatly invefted on all Sides, Gen. Ludkner 
had no other Method of Retteat but by the 
Road that leads to Witzenhaufen, where 
he gained an advanra^reous Eminence, from 
whence he cannonaded the French with fuch 
Succtft, th^t he fecured his Retreat to 
Scharffcnilein without the Lofs of a fingle 
Man or Horfe killed or taken, only a few 
wounded in the Affair. But an Officer^ 
with 34 militia Men, who where left in the 
Town, were taken. The Lofsof the French 
upon this Occalion is reckoned at above 300 
Men. On the 14th, Gen. Luckner w.m 
detached to Heiligendadi, and findmg the 
French had left it, retook Poflcffion of it. 
The other Quarters of Cantonments of the 
allied Army have been unmolclUd. The 
Marquis of Granby was in his Quarters at 
Corvey on the Wefer, on the 3cth part. 

We learn, that the young Prince of Wir. 
tenbtrg was marched intoSwediffi Pomera- 
nia, to ^(k againd the Swedes in thofe Parts j 
and that the Duke of Wirtemberg, with his 
Troops, was returned into his own Coun- 

Thclaft Letters from Leip£c, ofthezSth 
part. Cay, that every thing remained in a 
State of Inadiionin that Country.

Jan. 7. 

We remain quiet in our Quarters here. 
We have received an Account, that Count 
Broglio, with a large Body of Troops, and 
affiled likewife in his Operations by Lieut. 
Gen. M. de Stainv.lle. attacked, on the ad 
Inftant, the Town of Duder(taHr, which 'm 
at the Extremity of his Serene Highnefs*s

ber^ WAS pulled there, but found it necef-

firy to quit the Town (which the Enemy 
entered) and to take Polfcffion of the Heijrhts 
of Hetbiihagen, where he maintained hiin- 
ielf till the Arrival of the Generate Kielmnn- 
fegt^eand Luckner to his Succour, who, the 
next Day, attacked the French in Duder- 
(ladt, drove them from thence, and pur- 

fucd them as far as Witzcnhaufen. Th© 
Lofs of the Enemy, upon this Occ^flon, 
amounts, by their own Accounts, to 600 
Men ; 200 of them have been made Prifo- 
ners ; among whom are three complete 
Companies of F^jpnch Grenadies. The Lofs, 
on our Side, is about 1 90 Men. 


Cr^arUtTown, South Carolina, OfJ.ii, 

TH E following are the 910ft authentic 
and material Advices now received 
from the Cherokee Country. 

— " It was Round O's Brother who feiz- 
ed and carried ofT Captain Stuart from the 
Field uf Blood, where fo many of our Coun- 
trymen and Friende were treacheroufly 
butchered by the perfidious Savages, and 
who delivered him to Attakulla Kulla then 
at Fort Loudoun. 

** Ju(ld*.s Friend exerted himfelf much 
that Diy in our Favour, and prevented the 
'MafTacre from being almofl general \ he 
went round the Field ordering and calling 
to the Indians to defiil, and by the Repre- 
lentations he made to them, Aopt the furl her 
Progrefs and EfTe^s of their baibarous and 
brutal Race. He declares it as his Oi/mion 
and Refolution, that if they can now obtain a 
Peace, there never fhall be more War as 
Jong at he and the Old Warriors live. 

<' On the 16th of laft Month the Bririfh 
Colours were difplayed all Day and Ni^ht 
at Nookafee, where triers wa« a Meeting of 
nearTooo Cherokees, about 1400 of whom 
were Men, and a Talk w^ delivered by 
Oucannoflotahand Judd^s Friend for a Peace 
With their Brothers the white Men ; [the 
Indians always by white Men mean Britons, 
in DiflmAion from other Europeans, whom 
they call by their common and ufual Names, 
as French, Spaniards, &c 1 which Talk was 
repeated by the Tame Headmen, and agreed 
to by all prefent, the 9th inflant at Sugar- 
town. Orders were thereupon given, that 
no white Men [Britons] coming into their 
Nation, fhoold be interrupted, but be al- 
lowed freely to pafs and repafs. This great 
Alteration in the Behaviour of the Indians, 
by. Mr. Terron and others well acquainted 
with them, is attributed entirely to the Talks 
fent to them by our Governor and Col. Byrd. 

« The whole Crop this Year in all the 
Cherekee Towns, notwithfbinding the ter- 
rifying Accounts^ eagerly aAdfedaloany pro- 

pagated, of the great Quantity of Com that 
would be made in ihedeAtoyed and defolate 
Settlements, is not fufficient to fapply them 
three Months. 

** Many of that Nation, among whom 
are nearly all the People of the Middle Set- 
tlements and Lower Towns, who were the 
moit feverety chaflifcd and fcourged by his 
Majcf>y*s Troops commanded by the Hon. 
Colonel Montgomery, are now almofl na- 
ked and in want of every NecelTary. There 
is, therefore, on the Wliole, little Reafon 
to doubt of the Sincerity of their Requefls 
for Peace."

Amidu the Conitratulations thatfurround 
the Throne, permit me to lay before your 
MajcAy a Heart, a Heart, which, thoue,h 
oppreffcd with Age and Infirmity, is no 
Stranger to the Joys of my Country. 

When thtr melancholy New» of rhe I^to 
King*s Pemife* reached us, it naturally led 
us to confH^r the Lofs we had fui^rfined, 
and upon what our Hopes of Fuiuriry de- 
pended : The firft Part excited Grief, and 
put all the tender Paflions into Motion ; hut 
the fecond brouf^ht Life and Spirit with it, 
and wiped the Tears ftpm /every Face. Oh ! 
how graciouHy did the Providence of God 
provide for h Succcflbr, able to bear the 
Weight of Government in tli;it unexpcaid 
Event. You, Sir, are the Pcrfon whom 
the People ardently de^re ; which Affcaicn 
of theirs is happily returned, by your Ma- 
jeily's declared Concern for their Profpcri- 
tji and let nothing diflurb this mutual 
Confent. Let there i)e but one Cohi eft he. 
tween them, Whether the King loves tJie 
People bc(i, or the People him : And may 
it be a long, a very long Conteft ; may it 
never be decided, but let it remain doubt* 
ful J and may the paternal Aflfcaion on the 
one Side, and the (ilial Obedience en the 
Othtr, be had in perpetual Remembrance. 

This will probably be the laft Time I 
(hall ever trouble your Majefty. I heg Leave 
to exprtfs my warmed Wifhes and Prayer) 
pn your Behalf. May the God of Heaven 
and Earth have you always under his Pro- 
teaion, and direa you to feek his Honour 
and Glory in all you do ; and may you reap 
the Benefit of it, by an Increafe of Hap^i-

SIR, Fef>- 7» «7^»- 

1 Received your January Magazine this Day upon coming to Nottingham^ 
but as my Demdnftration feems fomething fimpler than that you have

let T reprcfent the periodic Time of the Earth, and / that of

Forces by which the Body L is attra^ed towards T and to- 


wards S, is at a Mean as 


or (multiplying both 


Terms by /*) as TL : T S x -7^, take L A =: T S „ 

and then the Force by which the Body L is drawn towards T, 
being reprefented by T L, the Force by which it is drawn to- 
wards S will be reprefented by LA: Now thcfe Forces acting 
upon the Body L (by its <u// injita tending towards B along the 
Tangent L B drawn perpendicular to 1' A*) in o ppoiice Direc- 
tions, the greater Force muft nwceflarily draw it from the Tan- 
gent h L towards itfelf, by a Force, whiCh at the nflant the 
Body moves from L, is equal to the Difference betivixt TL 
and L A, and it is manifeft that as the Facii of the Body faU« 
above, or below the Tangent BL, fo it muft be convex, or con- 
cave towards S : Now in the propo:ed Cal'c of the ^/looIv, \* K

where the Force T L = // is divided Into two (/r and cl) and only one of

What round bi^ MK*&% had fwelPd the pomp-

A king the hu/band, and the wife a queen ! 
Then niight diAra£lion rend her pacetui hair. 
Sec fightlefs forms, and fcrcam, and gape, and

But pe^ce ! the gentle prok>gue cuilom fends, 
Ijke drum and ferjeant, to beat up h>r iriends. 
At vice and folJy, each a lawful game. 
Our author flies, but with no/>^r.'iWaim. 
He read the nunncrs, open as they lie 
]n nature's volume to the general ctc. 
Books too he read, nor blulh'd to uie their 

He does but what his betters did before. 
Shakefpeare has done it, and the Graian ftage 
Caught truth of c^ara^ter from Hcmtr\ page. 

If in his fcenes an honeft ikill is (hewn. 
And borrowing little, much appears his own ; 
If what a roafter's happy pencil drew 
He brings more forward in dramatic view } 
To your decifion he fubmits his caufe. 
Secure of candour, anxious for applaufe. 

But if, all nide, his artkfs fcenes deface 
The fimple beauties which he meant to grace. 
If, an invader up«n others land. 
He fpoil and plunder with a robber^s hand. 
Do jufticc on him ! — as on fools before. 
And give to blockbttuU pad one hiochttad more.

Mifcellaneous Correfpondence, 

in Profe and Verfe. 

For APRIL, 1761. 

SOME Yean ago, a Vindication of Jrifleas^s Hijiury of the Seftuagimt wal 
publiQied by an anonyn^ous Author: In one Fart of which we have an 
excellent Account of the Valuation of ancient Coins, or Monies ; and as it will 
throw a confiderable Li^ht upon fome important PafTages of Scriptare, relatives 
10 that Subjed, which leem not to have been underllood by our modern Critica 
and Interprtttrs, we think the following £xtradl will be a proper Illacidatioil 
thereof, and very acceptable to our Readers, who have noti'een the above men* 
cioned Treatife. 

A Nother Accufation againft oar 
/j^ Author, and upon which no 
jmall Strefs has been laid, is taken 
from the Cods and Expences, which, 
according to Arifteas^ attended this 
Trandation. Mr. ProfeHor Hodf^ in 
his polite way, is pleafed to tell as, 
that fach as will ferioufly conf^ier the 
Matter, cannot doubt bat that Anfieas 
forged the fevcral Sums faid to be ex- 
pended upon this Occaiion. Dr, Po- 
mek^ who, for his conrummate Know* 
ledge in the Oriental Languages, can 
never be fdfficiently valued, thinks^ 
chat the whole Revenue of Egypt could 
icarcely amount to fuch a Sum. And 
the reverend and learned Author of the 
Connexion, who, I fuppofe, thooghc 
he onderflood the Value of Money as 
well as any fiody, concludes, that 
whatever the Revenues of Egypt might 
be, yet that Ptolemy Pbilade/f bus qo\x\6, 
not be fuch a Dupb as to part with fo 
large a Sam of Money, for what at 

that Time made only a Part of one of 
our prefent Bibles. Some perhaps, 
who have been wont to look upon eve« 
ry Oracle of God as a Treafurc in* 
finitely exctcJing all Price or Eilima- 
tion, may think this but a very coarfe 
Sort of a Complement upon the Holy 
Scriptures; and efpecially from the 
Pen of a learned and pious Divine, as 
I really believe Dr. Pridiaux was. 
And others, peradventure, who know 
how difficult a 1 king it is to fettle an 
Account of ten or twenty Years ftand^ 
ing in our own Days, may imagine 
that this, which was a Tranfadlion a« 
bove two thoufand Years ago, might 
as well have been let alone a> meddled 
with now ; and more efpecially, as 
we have not the lead Hint given u;i by 
any Author in all Antiquity, tbst any 
Body ever found fault either with the 
King for his Generofity u^>on this Oc- 
caiion, or with his Miniller for repre- 
fcnting him in fo amiabk a Light. But 
4 N hov\Tvcr, 


Mijccilancoui Corrcfpondcnce^ 

howevfr, fmce lo manv learned Men 
of btc havj takrn the ricdom ^> in- 
K^tAnfleai I'or tranlmittirig ffcli an 
Account to rofifriry; and fiUw-J Dr. Pri-

bcexciif.d, on thf other [fjrid, if I 
uke the Liberty in ir.y Turn, to in- 
quire a little more narrowly into the 
Validity of what he has been plcafed 
to offer upon ihis Head. 

Arifias^ fay^ he, ** makes Vtolemy 
advance an incredible Sum of Moncv 
fer the obtaining of this V'eriion. For, 
according to him, Pif.Umy expended in 
redeeming the captive Jf^s, that were 
in his' Kingdom, 6O0 Talents ; in 
Vcfiels of bilver fent to the Temple, 
70 Taknts; in VcfieU of Gold, 50 
T alentf ; and in precious Stones to a- 
dom and imbdlilh thefe VciTcJs to the 
Valae of five Times the Gold, that is 
250 Talents ; in a Gift for Sacrifices 
and other UTes of tiie Temple, ico 
Talents. And then he give to each 
of the Seventy -two interprtiers at their 
firft coming thr<-c Talents .ipitce in Sil- 
ver, that ii, 216 Talents in the Whole ; 
und laftly to each of them at liidr part- 
ing, two Talent'- in Gold, and a Gold 
CapofaTnlert Wu'ghr; all which put 
together, make in the Sum Jotul 
1046 Talents of Silver, and 516 Ta- 
Jc: is of Gold ; which being reduced 
to our Sterlint' jVlnncy, amounts to 
One Milliot:, fJhc Hundred and Eigh- 
teen Thovfandj Five Hundred Ihirty- 
fenjen Pounds^ Ten Shillings ( ' ,9 1 S, 5 3 7A 
JO/.) and if we arid hereto tho Value 
of otluT Gift?, which, according to 
jfrifieas^ were bellowed on thefe Seven- 
ty-two Elders by the Bounty of the 
King, and th** Charge?!, which it coll 
him in fvtching them to Al^xandria^ 
maintaining tht rn there, and (ending 
them back again to ^l\'rvfjU?n, thi* 
may hf compi-ffd to mount that > am to 
rear Tivo ?*1il'i')>if Sterlinc;. (2,ooo.ocr ) 
Kliich may well be reckoned to be a- 

bove Twenty Times as much as that 
whole Library was ever worth. And 
who can then believe, that this Nar- 
rative, which makes Ptolemy expend 
fo much for one single Bock in it, 
and which neither he, nor any of his 
Ccurt, as long as they continued Hea- 
thens, couK'. have any great Valae for, 
can be a true and genuine Hiftory ?** 

Thus the learned Author of the 
Connexion argues: And indet-d it niuft 
be confeiied, that, were we to compare 
the Sum total as he hascaft it up here, 
with the Revenue or Income of an 
Efi^lijh Deanery, or even with that of 
the bed Blfhoprick in the King*^ Gift« 
it would fecm to be an incredible Pur- 
chace for any one Book ; and efpecial- 
ly, if what he fays further be true, 
that Ptoltmy could have no great Va- 
lue for it, as long as he continutd a 
Heathen. But on the other Hand, if 
we confioer this as a Tranla^ion of a 
great and generous King, who knew 
perfidlly well both how to improve, 
and how to di'pofe cf his Revenues in 
the heft and nobleft Manner; the Sum 
perhaps will not appear fo incredible as 
it is here reprefenteid. Theocritus tells 
us, "J hat he ruled over 33,339 Cities: 
And if we may fuppofe, that the An- 
nual Tribute which they p^id hioi, 
amounted but to ten Talents of Silver, 
and one Talent of Gold, one with a- 
nother ; which is not a very high Eili- 
matc, confidering that the laves of 
Alexandria alone, at the lowcll Com- 
putation, have been reckoned to amount 
to 1,500,000/ Sterling, per Anntim^ 
and upwards; his Revence at this Rate 
mull have amounted to 353.390 Ta- 
lents jdi Silver, and 33,359 'i alents of 
Gold; which according to the Doc- 
tor's way of Computation at 206/. 5/. 
for a Talent of Silver ; and 3,300/. 
for a Talent of Gold, amounts in Ster- 
ling Money to the Sum of 17 8,6 ho, 3 87/. 
ici. I know not what our Anii-i^ri- 
fieavs will fay to fuch an immenfe Re- 
venue as this; neither will 1 pretend 
to anfwer for the fame. But, if they

Orders for the Court to go cut of Mourning

Mar^ 25. Beintc the Birth- day of his Royal 
Highnefs the Duke of York, |iis Majefty 
received the Compliments of the Nobility, 
&c. on the Occflfion; as did her 
Highnefs the Princefs Dowager of Wales, at 
Lciccfter- houfe. 

We hear that the Society fuv the Encou- 
ragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Com- 
meice, have adjudged the firft Premium of 
100 Guineas for the beft Hiftorical Paintfng, 
on .1 SubjeA taken from the Critilh Hiftory, 
x*> the Chevalier Cafali, whofe Pifture of 
Cunhilda obtained a Prize of 50 Guineas 
laft Year. The Story is that of Edward 
the Martyr, and is thus i dated by Dr, 

Smollet in his Hiftory of England 1 « Refides 
the Ecclefiaflical AfFiirs, no Tranfaftlon of 
Conrcqii»nce diftin«:ui(hed the Reign of Ed- 
ward, which Lifted but four Years, and 
was concluded in a very tragical Manner. 
The Kinc: rcturninjr one Day from the Chafe, 
in Doifetfhirc, rode up fingly to the Gate of 
Corfe Caftle, to pay his Compliments to hia 
Step Mother, Elfrida, who invited him very 
courteoufly to alight ; and finding him in a 
Hurry to be pone, infifted upon his drinking^ 
a Cup of Wine as he fat on Horfehack : 
The young King complied with her Requeft, 
and as he fwallowed the Liquor was ftabb*d 
in the Backbyone ofherDomeftics, tutor- 
ed for thati^urpofe. Edward, finding him- 
felf wounded, clapped Spurs to his Horfc» 
hut fainted with Lofs of Blocd j and hit 
Foot being entangled in the Stirrup, as he 
fell was dragged a confiderable Way, when 
his Horfc made a Stop of his own Accord 
before (he Door of a poor old blind woman ; 
thtte ilic Servants of Elfrida, fcnt by their 
Miftrefs to know the IlFue of her Treafon, 
found the unhappy Prince quite dead, and- 
terribly defaced by the Flints over which ho 
had been dragged. They threw the Body 
into a Well, where in a few Days it was 
found, and interred at Wareham j froai 
whence it was afterward tranfported to the 
Monaftery of Shaftefl>ury, where it is faid 
to have performed a great many Miracles ; 
and Edward was canonized as a Saint and 

The Society likewifc adjudged a Premium, 
of 50 Guineas for the beft otiginalLandlkip 
to Mr. Geo. Smith, of Chichefter, and a 
Premium of 25 Guineas to the fecond Beft,, 
to his Brother Mr. John Smith. 'Tis re- 
markable that both of them obtained the 
Premiums laft Year, when the Ballot was 
fo exndlly equal, that the Chairman only 
decided in Favour of Mr. Geo. Smixh, and 
the Merit of their prcfent Exhibitions were 
fo difficult to be determined, that many of 
the Committee refufed to give their Vote at 
all, left it ihould be deemed partial.

If it flinuld be objefled, that tbuis 
a new Way of computing the Value of 
Gold Talents ; I anfwer, that what- 
ever Opinion Tome may entertain of it, 
yet I cannot but think ii moie ch*D 
probable, not nnly that the Grttii, 
but that al! other Nations, when- Gold 
and Silver W3!i coined, and paffcd by 
Tale, computed the Gold Taliri ai I 
have done. Por, though our modem 
Wrtienhave takrn upon tbemfelvei to 
mike a Talent of Gold equalin Weight 
toaTalent of Silver} and confequently 
to make the one 10, iz, 13, or 16 
tinifj mote valuable than the other; 
yet 1 do'ilit they would find it ex- 
tremely diflisult, if not impolHble, to 
froiv, that the Antient* computed tbe 
alue of any of their Money Talents 
after this Manner. Whereas on the 
other Hand, I think, many InJlances 
mny be produced to Iliew, tliai al) thofe

two in April 17 ^9. 

Thefe three Ships failed from the Eaft In- 
dies the iid of November lad ; at which 
Time it was every hour expeQcd to hear of 
the Sui render of Pordicherry, as the Garri- 
fun was in a dift re/Ted Condition, and the 
Town fo clofely befieged both by Sea and 
Land, that it was in vain for them to exped 
any ReKef. Captain HaflT, who has been (e-

gniming Fire, was tried in the Houfe erec- 
ted for that Purpofe near .laryhone. Great 
Numbers of Perfons of Diftin^ion gave thei^ 
Attendance upon this Occnfion. The Houfe, 
which is of Brick, confilU of three Rooms 
one above another, a Stair-cafe, Chimney, 
lath and plainer Ceilings, and a kind of 
Wainfcotting round the Rooms of rough 
Deal. At twelve o'Ctock the Gronnd- room, 
and that up one pair of Stairs, were fet on 
Fire, by lighting Faggots and Shavings laid 
In there for that Purpofe : in about 15 Mi- 

nurei the Wainfcot of the under Room 
thought to be fufficiently in Flames, aai 
three of the Machines were cbrowa ilt 

which , by immediate and fsAleit ExpMoi^ 
inftantaneoufly exttnguifbed Che FImm^i 

and the very Smoke in a few MinMca dKf* 
peared. By this Time the FireawB, tt. 
who had the Care of the Macbinea, ptnm 
Alarm that the Suir cafe had Cirisoi Fln^

The Experimeot, however, hithertD did

without-fide the Paling, who were fuppefed 
to amount to near ao,ooo, remainca lOKh 
dtfatisiied, began to grow rather riotoos, 
and talk of a fecond BotHe Coojom. 
Therefore, to remove all manner of DMkt^ 
Mr. Godfrey confented to a third Expert* 
ment m the upper Room, wbich wit ea* 
tireJy of wood. The Flames were now fuf* 
fered to get to a confiderable height, aiid 
even the Window frames deftroyed, befeft

Now this Point being fettled, the them, the Gold and Silver was n-

Whether the Egyptian Silver Talent pended upon this Occafion ? For mj

>rT^WAS at the ncOarM feaft of Jove, 

M When fair AJcmcoa*s fon 
His deftin'd courfc on earth had run, 

ADdcIaim*d the thrones above. 
Around their king, in deep debate, 
CoiTvenM the heavenly Synod fate. 
And meditated Boons refin*d, 
To grace the friend of humankind ; 
When lo, to mark th' advancing God, 
Propitious Hermes ftretch'd hid rod. 

The roofs with mufic rung ! 
For, from amidft the circling choir, 
ApoUo ftruck th* alarming lyre. 

And thus the mufes fung ^ 
** What boon divine would heaven beflow ? 
** Ye gcds, unbend the ftudious brow^ 

** The fniitlcfs fearch give o*er j 
** Whiift we the juft revrard aflign : 
*' Lee Hercules with Hebe join, 

*' And YovTH unite with PowsR !** 


O fjucnd tmdi in emblem dreft ! -• 

Again the mufes fung, 
A|^n in Britain's blooming king 

Alddes fia|ids confeft. 
By temperance nurs*d, and early taught 
To ihun the fmooth fallacious draught 
Which Iparkles high in Ciroe*8 bowl : 
To tame each hydra of the foul, 
Cach lurking pefl, which mocks its birth. 
And ties the fpirst down to earth 

Iromers*d in mortal coil : 
His choice was that fcverer road 
Which leads Id virtue's calm abode^ 

And well repays the toil. 
In vain ye tempt; ye fpecious harms, 
Tc flowery wiles, ye flattering chaiios. 

That breathe from yonder bower : 
And heaven the juft reward aiSgns, 
For Hercolos with Hebe joins. 

And YooTR outes with Powix, 

*d by heaven to 6U that awfal throne 
Edward, Henry, WHliam^ George 
hate fliooe. 

(WJiere love with reverence, laws with power 

And *d6 each fubje£b*s birth-right to be free.) 
The faireft wreaths already won 

Are but a prelude to the whole : 
Thy arduous race is now begun. 

And, ftarting from a nobler gaol. 
Heroes and kitogs of ages paft 

Are thy compeers ; extended high 

The trump of fame expels the blaft. 

The radiant lifts before thee lie. 

The field is time, the prize Etirnxtt* 

Beyond exapple^s bounded light 

'Tis thine to urge the daring flight. 

And heights untried exploit : 
O think what thou alone can*ft give. 
What bleflings Britain may receive. 
When YovTH unites with Powxx ! 



MAY-moming ! e»'ry pratfe is thine^ 
All nature owns thy pow*r benign. 
• uw Mioral warblers of the fpring. 
To thee their virgin anthems ling. 
To thee the linnet fwells his note. 
To thee the rcd-breaft ftrains his throat. 
And ev'ry ftirub, and every tree 
Is t'uU of mufic, full of thee. 


The IQly now exalts her head 
And humble cowflips gild the mead. 
The tulip fmiks upon the day. 
Enamoured of its maiden ray. 
The vi'kt fpreads her purple breaft. 
The rofe puts on her crimfon veft. 
But cv'ry fplendid flow*r we fee. 
May- morning, owes its charmt to thee.

Love enters now his golden retgn. 
And deals out plcafure mix'd with pain. 
The (hepherd feels the tender flame. 
And longs for ioys he fears to name. 
The nymph lifts up her fwimming eyes,^ 
And languifties, and pants, and fighs, ' 
She breathes the fofcneli of the dove. 
And all her fluttering foul is love, 

Then come, my fair, and let us provs 
The 9far delights of virtuous lovej 
For virtue dignifies the mind, 
And makes the paflion more refin'd. 
When boundlefs rapture we fhatl tafte 
When facred Hymen binds us faft ! 
Then fpring fliall make lier conftaat flay. 
And every m^raing (hall be May.

WE have received the following Par- 
ticulars of Major Scheiter's late 
fuccefsfu! Expedition. He croifed the Rhine 
at Billick, with 36 Horfes, and burnt the 
French Magazine! atXarten, which coofifl- 
ed cf about 35,000 Rationa of Hay and 
Straw, and 1400 Sacks of Oats. From 
thence he went to Sofiibeck^ and pafled by 
Gueldran and Stralen, in his Way to Ka- 
kirchen and Ruremonde, but learning that 
Ruremond was poilefled by Auflrian 
Troops, he went to Aerfen, where he 
burnt a very great Magazitfe of Hay and 
Straw, which at a moderate Computation , 
confided, at lea A, of a Million and a Half 
of-Rattoms and two Boats, having on 
Board 4000 Sacks of Oats, wliich he call 
into the Maas. Near Celdern be met 100 
Carts with Forage, which he caufed to be 
unloaded and burnt. From Aei fen betook 
the Route of Gennep, and burnt tIte Maga- 
tine there, coniifting of j 00, 000 Rations of 
Hay and Straw ; and foroe thoufand Rations* 
of Oats. In this Tour, he made 16 Prt- 
foners, whom he took along with him, be- 
fides a Serjeant, and 1% Auftrian and 40 
French Boatmen, whom, not being able to 
take with him, he left to the-Magiftrates 
ofStralen and Aerfen, till his return. He 
aftewards burnt four doable Boats with Fo* 
rage, and croiTcd the Rhine at Loburg. 

At Buderick there was a Regiment of 
French Cavalry with glfndered Horfes : 
They detached 150 Horfemen after him. 
Two hundred Foot were Tent after him, in 
three Detachments, fiom Wefel; hut he 
happily efcaped them. At Bockholt, a 
ftrong Party ' waited for him in ht^ Return j 
but he made his Retxeat, and efcaped from 
them too. 

He performed all this in ninety- three 
Hour's Time. 

By Letters from WeAphatia we under- 
hand that Prince Ferdinand*a Head Quar- 
terswcje, onthet6th, atSocA, where his 
.Highnefs had aflfemhled his whole Army. 
The Prince of Soubife, who had marched

Rome, Spain, and Naples. The Piinces

Damage they havr fuffei ed during the prcfent

Ooeafion there had been a fmart Engagement 
■between him and a Body of Rufiians near 
Treptow Wood, when the Regiment of 
W^irtemberg had been put into Diforder $ 
that the Affair was not however of fo great 
Conieqnence as to prevent the further Pro- 
grefs of the Pruflians, though Gen. Werner 
tiimfelf, in endeavouring to rally the faid 
Regiment, had been made Prifoner. On 
the other Side, Lieut. Colonel Witgenilein, 
vith about 100 Men, had fallen into the 
Hands of the Pruifians.'

upon a Negative, or a Refubl of fuch cate- 
gorical Anfwer, as an AggreiBon and Decla- 
ration of War \ and that, in Confequcnce 
thereof, he thought he ought to retire Irom 
Che Court of Spain.** •«- He was thereupon 
anfwered, by thefaid Minifter of State, that 
the Spirit of Haughtioefs and of Difcord,

The Count de Fuentes is ordered, ih Cofu

Kingdom of Great- Britain, and to nuke 
known to bis Britannic Majefly, to the Bri-

Tower of London (hould be conquered by 
the Point of the Sword.** Add to this, the 
imperious Tone In which fuch Dedaratioa 
was made. 

The Spanifli Miniflry could have freely 
declared to the Enghfli, (as the King himfelf 
now, ofhis own free will, commands the 
Count de Fuenies to declare publickly) that 
the Treaty inQueftion is reducvd to a Cove* 
nant between his Majefty and the Family of 
Bourbon, which contains nothing relative

make that MiniAer fenfible, that if they 
periiAed in refuting all Satisfaftion on T>e- 
Bands fo juft, • fo neceffary, *nd fo intereft- 
inf , the King could not but confider fuch a 
Rcftital as the moft authentic Avowal, that 
Spain had taken her Part, and that there 
•nly remained for hb Majefty to take the 
Mcafores which his Royal Prudence ihould 
dilate for the Honovr and Dignity of hit 
Crown, and for the Profpcrity and Pfotcc. 
tion of his People : And ^(o vecall his Am- 

Unhappily for ^ public Tranquility, for 
the Intereftof the two Nations, and for the 
^fOod of Mankind, this laft Step was as 
fruitlefs as the preceding Ones 4 the €paniAi 
Miniiler, keeping no further Meafnres, an- 
fwered dryly, *• That it was in that very 
Moment, that the War was declared, and 
the King's Dignity attacked, and that the 
Earl of Briftol might retire how^ and when, 
fee Ihoald think proper.** 

And in order to fet in its true Light the 
Declaration, " That, if the Rcfpeddue to 
hie Catholic Ma)e% had been regarded, 
Expbnations might have been had without 
any Difficulty, and that the Minifters of 
Spain might have Cud frankly, as Monf. de 
£ytDt#s, by the KiDg*i vxprcii Order^ de* 

dares poblickly, that the faid Treaty ?s on* 
ly a Convention between the Family of 
Bourbon; wherein there is nothino^, which 
has the leaft Relation to the preftnt War ; 
and that the Guaranty, which is therein 
fpecified, is not to be undet Aood but of ttie 
Dominions, which (hall remain to France 
after the War :'* It is declared, that, very 
far from thinking of being wanting to tho 
Refpeft, acknowledged to be due to crown- 
ed Heads, the Inftrudions, given to the 
Carl of Briftol, have always been to make 
"the Requiiitions, on the Subje^ of the En- 
gagements betv^een the Courts of Madrid 
and Vei failles, with all the Decency, and 
all the Attehtion podible ; and the Demand 
of a caiegorial Anfwer was not made till 
after repeated, and the moft flinging Refu- 
fals to give the leaft SatisfoAion, and at the 
iaft Extremity ; therefore, if the Court of 
Spain ever had the Defign to give ihis'fo ne- 
eeilary €atisfa^on, they had not the leafl 
Iteafon, that ought to have engaged them to 
defer it to the Moment, when it couM no 
tonger be of Ufe. But, fortunately, the 
Terms, in which the Declaiation is con- 
ceived, fpare us the Regret of not having 
received it fooner ; for it appears at , firfl 
Sight, that the Anfwer is .not at all con<* 
formable to the Demand s We wanted to be 
informed, i/Jhe Court ^f Spsiu intended f

trality : Whereas -the Anfwer concerns one 
Treaty only, which is faid to be of the X5th 
•f Auguft, carefully avoiding to fay the leaft 
Word, that could explain, in any Manner^ 
the Intentions of Spain towards Great'Bri- 
tain, or the further Engagements they may 
havecontraded in the ptefent Crifis. 

Afrcr a Dedudion, as exa£i as' faithful,

it is left to the impartial Public to decide, 
which of the two has always been inclin- 
ed to Peace, and which was determined on

eirneft d'.firc to M;iintain the flridefl Ami- 
ty with tl.e King of Spain, and to accom- 
modaci' tiitr Difi utcs between us and that 
Crown in the mctt amicable Manner. This

iif^ent with their Neutrality : And mcf^ Proofs liave been given of the 
Frier.dil.ip :tnd Regard of the Court of 
Great Riitain for the King of Spain, and 
his Family. After a Conduft fo friendly, 
and fo full of good Faith, on our Part, it 
was Matter of i^reat Surprize to us, to And 
a Memorial de'ivcred on the twenty-third 
Day of July laft, by Monfieur BuflTy, Mlnif- 
ter Plenipolentirny of Fiance, to one of our 
Principal Secretaries of State, exprefsly i e- 
lating to the Difj^utes between us and the 
Crown of Spain ; and declaring, th'it, if 
fliofe Ohjc^s Hiculd bring on a Wnr, the 
Flench King would be obliged to take Part 
therein. Our Surprize was encieafcd, when, 
afrerwardi, this unprecedented and ofTcn- 
livc Step, made by a Power in open War 
with us, was avowed, by the Spantfh Mi- 
|iii\er to our AmbafTadcr at M.idrid, to have 
been taken wirt, the full Approbation and 
Conftnt of the King of Spain. But^ as this 
avowal accompanied with the mo(l be- 
coming Apologies on the Part of the King 
of Spain, and with A/Turances, that fuch 
MemoridI never would have been delivered^ 
if if had been fortfeen that we (hoiild liave 
looked upon it in an ofTenftve Light ; and 
that the Kin^ oi' Spain was at Liberty, and 
ready, to adjufl all hit Differences with 
Great Britain, without the Intervention, or 
Knowledge, of France; and foon after, we 
had the Satisfaction to be informed by our 
Ambaflador at Madrid, that the Spanifli 
J^initUrjf taking Notice of the Reports in- 

duftrioofly fpread of an approachinft Hopr 
ture, had acquainted him, that the King of 
Spain had, at no Time, been more intent on 
cultivatmg a good Cori^fpondence with as \ 
and as the 6panifh AmbafCidor at our Court 
made repeated Declarations to the fame Ef- 
fe£l ; we thought ourfelves bound, in Juf- 
tice and Prudence, to forbear coming ro 
BxfremiCies. But the fame tender Concern^ 
for the Welfare of our Subjeds, which pre- 
vented our accelerating pi ecipitately a War 
with Spain, if it could pofllbly be avoided, 
made it ncccflTiry for us to endeavour to 
know with certainty, what were the En- 
gagements, and real Intentions of the Court 
of Spain. Therefore, as we hadJnforim- 
lion, that Engagements had been late)y con- 
traced between the Courts of Madrid and 
Verfailles ; and it wasfoonafterindiiftrioii/ly 
fpread throughout all Europe, by the Mi- 
ni Aers of France, that the Parport of thofe 
Engagements was hoftile to Great Britain, 
and that Spain was on the Point of enrering 
into the War ; we direAed our AmbafTador 
to defire, in the mod friendly Term5, a 
communication of the Treaties lately con- 
cluded between France and Spain ; or of 
fuch Articles thereof at immediately rehttd 
to the Intereft of Great Britain, if any fiicli 
there were ; or, atleaft, an Aflurancethat 
theie were none incompatible with the 
Friendfhip fubfifting between ut and the 
Crown of Spain. Our Aftonilhment and 
Concern wa^ great, when we learnt, that 
fo far from giving Satisfa^ion .upon fo rea- 
fonable an Application, the Spanifh Minify 
tcr had declined Anfweringi with Reafon- 
ings and Infmuations of a very boftile Ten- 
dency : And as, at the faitie Time, we 
had Intelligence, that great ArroanienU 
were making in Spain, by Sea and land, 
we thought it ahfolutely necefiary to try, 
once more, if a Rupture could be avoided : 
We therefore direded our Ambaflador to 
alk, in a firm, but friendly Manner, Whe- 
ther the Court of Madrid intended to join 
the French, our Enemies, to aA hoAdely 
againft Great Britain, or to depart from its 
Neutrality ; and, if he found the Spanifh 
Minifter avoided to give a clear Anfwer, to 
insinuate, in the moft decent Manner, that 
the refuting, or avoiding to Anfwer aQuef- 
tionforeaHonable, couM only arife from the 
King of Spain's haying already engaged, or 
refolved to take Part againfl us, and muf% 
be looked upon as an avowal of fuch hoftilQ 
Intention, and equivalent to a Declaration 
of War ; and that he hacT orders immediate-

a Ceflation of Arms is a^^ually agreed upon 
between the Emperor of RuHia and the

The following Declaration of War by Spain 
a^cainft Great Britain, dated the 16th of 
January, was publiO^ed at Madrid, on 
the 1 8th. 
The king. 

«' AithoU9,h I haife already taken for a 
Declaration of War by England ag:ainft 
^pain, the inconfiderat^* Step of Lord Brif- 
tol, the Britannic King*s Ambaflfadnr at 
my Codrt, when he demanded of Don Ri» 
chard Wait, ray Mintfter of State, what 
Engagements I had contracted with France, 
.making this the Condition of his Demand , 
or rather adding this Threat, That if ho 
did not receive a categorical Anfwerj^ he 
would ieave my Court, and take the Deni« 
;sl for an Aggreflion ; and although, before 
this Provocation was received, my Patience 
vras tired out with fuifcring and beholding, 
on many Occafions, that the En^ifti Go- 
vernment minded no otiier Law, but the 
^ggrandifement of their Nation by Land, 
and univerfaJ Defpotifm by Sea { I was 
'iievertiielefs dtfirout to fee w.hether this 
Menace would be carried into Execution ; 
or whether the Couit of England, fenfibie 
of the Inefficacy of fuch Methods towards 
^ my Dignity and that of my Crown, would 
. not employ others that (hould be more ftii- 
' table to me, and make me overlook all thofe 
Infults. But the HaoghtineTs pf the En«> 
giifli was fo far from containing it within 
. jult Bounds, that I have juft learnt that on 
the 2d inftant a Refolution was taken by the 
Britannick King in Council, to declare War 
againfl Spain. Thus, feeing myfelf under 
the hard Neceflity of following .this Ex^m> 
p!e, which I woiMd never have given, be- 
caufe it is fo horrible and To contrary toHti* 
manlty, I have ordered, by a Decree of the 
15th inibtnt, that War ihould hkewife he 
immediately declared, on my Part, agailkl^

Produdlions or Fisheries, particularly Cod,

that the Inhibition of this Trade may be

H^bitehall, March 9. Early this Morning 
Capt. Walfmgham arrived with the follow- 
ing Letter from Major General Monckton, 
dated from the Head- quarters in the Ifland 
oi MaitiniCo, Jan. ao, 1762. 


My Lord, 

" T have the Honour to acquaint your 
Lordfliip, that we left Barbndoes the 5th 
InttiPt, anchored in St. Ann's Bay in this ihe7th, the Ships of War having fi- 
]cn«-«:d r)mc Batteries which the Enemy had 
created thcie, and w!»ere I was in Hopes to 
have been able to have landed on the wedcrn 
S de of the Bay, and to have croflfed over 
tuiWt Ro/il Djy 3 but the Ulfnculue« iVvat 

would have attended our being fupplicd with 
Provifions and Stores, added to the Sc;ircity 
of frefh Water in that Part, made medcfirt. 
I then thought that if I could get Po(reflit>n 
of Pidgeon Ifland, a feciire Anchora^ 
might be .had for the Fleet and Tranfports 
in Fort Royal Harbour. For this Purpofc I 
detached two Brigades of the Army, under 
the Command of Brigadier Haviland, and 
Grant, to Ance Darlet, where they landed, 
and marched to the Ground oppofi'e to the 
Ifland ; but finding the Road impafTable for i 
Cannon, which were necefTary for the Re- 
dudlion of that 'Ifland, I judged it bed for 
his Majefly*s Service to proceed (having; ^ j 
previoufly reconnoitred the Shore) and land 
near the Cafe des Navires ; which we efTec- < 
ted on the i6rh; without any Molefbtion, j 
the Ship!! of War having (ilenced the Batte. 
ries above us. I had forgotten, my Lord, 
to mention, that with the above Commimi 
were the Light. Infantry under Lieut. Col. 
Scott, who^we^e advanced the Night the 
Commind remained thcre^ and were at- 
tacked in the Night by ih/ee Companio of 
Grenadiers, fome Freebooters , Ncgroei,and 
Mulattoes, which the Enemy had paffed 
over from Fort Royal ; but they were fo 
warmly received, that they retreated preci- 
pitately, leaving forae dead } and a Ser« 
jeant and three of their Grenadiers takea 
Prifoners, without any Lofs on our Side. 

<< We are now encamped upon the 
Heights above Cafe des Navires ; and I was 
in Hopes, before this Time, to have given 
your Lordfliip more fatisfaflory Accounts 
of our Operations. But the Ravines, or 
Gullies, we have to pafi, are of fuch Depth 
and Difficulty of Accefs, and that in the 
Face of many Battel ies and Redoubts, with 
the whole Country, as well Mulattoes and 
Nec^rces, as Inhabitants, in Arms, and 
without being able ^o procure ^ny material 
Intelligence, (hat I do not think it prudent 
to expofe his Majcfly's Troops, unUl I can 
ere€t Batteries to cover them, which we 
are at Work upon with the utmoft Expedi- 

'* However, my Lord, I have thePlea- 
fure to acquaint you, that the Troopa con- 
tinue healthy, although they luive been ne- 
ceffarily expofed to faying on their Anns, 
and are in the highef^ Spirits ; and I don*t 
in the leaft doubt but that 1 fliall be able to 
execute this principal Objcd of his Majt- 
lly's Commands, of wtiich 1 fhall give your 
Lordfliip the earlid Notice. 

<* It gives me great Pteifure to-acauaint 
your Lordfhip, how much I am indebted 
to Admiral Rodney, for the Afliftance re- 
ceived from the Fleet under his Command : 
TV\t uXOiO^ Hinnooy has fubfifted hither -

'* I dcfire you will acquaint their Lord- 
Ihipa^ that I ariived at Bnbadocs on the 
2zd of November, having parted Company 
With the Squadron under my Command in a 
h^rd Gal« of Wind, a few Days after we 
kit the Channel. 

«< JThe Foudroyant, Modefl0> and Bafi-

Addeon, with the Troops from Beileifle, 
arrived the i4ih of December, and Major- 
General Monckton, with the Forces from 
North- America, on the 341 h ; and having 
remained a few Days to water the Ships, 
rcfreAi the Men, and make the neceflary 
Difpofitions for our Enterprize, we arri- 
ved off Martinico the 7th of Januay $ and 
on the 8th we all anchored in St. Ann*s 
B^y, the Ithips I had appointed (under Sir 
Jamea Douglas) having filenced the Forte 
of that CoaAj in performing which, 
we bad the Misfortune to lofe the Raifona- 
hle, as file was leading in for one of the 
£riemy*a Batteries, owing to the Pilot** be- 
i iog Ignorant of a Utc)e Reef of Rocks, which 
took bcr up. We have faved all her Peo • 
pie, all her Stores, and I hope foon to gee 
aJi ber Guns. 

** Having, by this Motion of the Fleet 
and Army, taken Po/TclTion of an excellent 
Harbour, and fecured a Landing on the 
wcathcrmofl Hart of the Ifland, which might 
be made tenable at any l^'me, as Jikewife 
thereby greatly alarmed the Enemy, at Ge- 
neral Monckton^s Requeft, I difpatched 
Commodore Swan ton, with a Squadron of 
Ships, and two Brigades, to the Bay of Pe- 
tite Ance, in order to take Pofl there. Cap- 
uin Hervey of the Dragon having (ilenced 
the Battery of the Grand Ance, landed his 
Marines and Seamen, who attacked it alfo 
from the Shore, and took PoiTcfllion of the 
Fcrt ; and, on the i4tH, I followed with 
the whole Fleet aad Army, after dedroying 
tlic £oemy*s Batteries at Su Anne'ft Bay^ 

when, having reconnoitred the Coaft with 
the General, we came to a Refolution to 
make an Attempt between Poipt Negroe 
and the Cas de Pilotte, which I ordered to 
be attacked on the 16th ; and having very 
fuccefsfuliy and with very little Lofs filen* 
ced the Batteries, I landed Gen. Mouncktoa 
with the greatcil Part of his Forces by Sun-» 
fet J and the whole Army was on Shore a 
little after Day-light next Morning, wirh- 
'out the Lofs of a Man (the Boats being 
commanded by Commodore Swanton in the 
Center, Capr. Shuldham 00 the right Wing, 
and Capt. Hervey on the Left) with fuch 
NecefTaries as they were mo(t immediately 
in Want of, and had all the ^hips and Tran- 
f ports anchored as much in Safety, as this 
Cpa/l will admit. 

*' I alfo landed two Batallions of Ma- 
rines, confifting of 450 Men each. 

" The Army ar« now carrying on their 
Approaches to the Heights of Mount Gre- 
nie and Mount Tortuefon, which the Ene- 
my have made as Arong as Art can do, and 
from whence the General propofes to lay 
Siege to Fort Royal.

My Lord, 

I had the Honour of writing to your 
Lordihip the aoth of January, when 1 ac- 
quainted you, that I intended to attack the 
Enemy in tlie Arong Po(ls they occupied on 
the oppofite Heights, and the Moine Tar^ '

had.eredled Batteries (which were thought 
neceflary) to aflifl us, in the pafling a very

dier Walfh. with his Brig.ido, (fupp'^rting 
the Lijlit Infantry undtr Lieu. Co!. Scott) 
to attack the Left of a Plantation, and to 
endeavour to Rci rcund tiic Enemy. The 
Light Infantry efFttred their Attempt j 
and while the Grtnariicru were drivini( the 
Inemy from Poll to Poll, they got upon 
their Left, which helped to complete the 
Event of the Day. The Enemy's Work* 
y^tre now focceiTively attacked wi«h the 
moft irrrfifl^ible Impefuofity ; fo that at 
Nine n*Clock we were m entire PofFcfHon 
of all their Woiks, and the ftrong Ground 
of Morr.e T;ultnfon, ccr.llrting of many 
Redoubts, miMjiitcd vi^ith C*annon, and 
advamat;eoui]y frua'ed, to atfift the natural 
great Strength of fhe Country. The Enemy 
retired, in the greireft Confufion, to the 
Town of Foi t R0y.1l, .md to Moinc Gamier 
fa ftill hip.hti Hill the Momc Taittn- 
ibii, and fcpara'id from it by a direp Ravine, 
covered with a veiy thick Brufh, and a 
Rivulet at the Rtirrom) from whence they 
thought they were never to be diHodged, 
hoih from its n:itural Strength, and fhe 
Workf and Ratfcricr. they hid on it. The 
Spirit of the Greiiar;iers in this Attack was 
fuch, that fvMTic of rhem even (Hirfucd the 
Enemy to the Brid^:c cf the Town, and 
brought off Prifom-rs from thi-nce. 

While this wa^doini^on rhi^ Side, Briga- 
dier Havilnnd with hi^ Brigade, two Batta- 
!io:l^ of Hi^hUn.1«:rs, and a Corps of Light 
Ini.mtry (which I had formed from the fe- 
vcral Regiments, .ir.d given the Command 
of to Major I.'. land) hjd Orders (fmm the

and Attack a Body of the tnemy wh'» 
wtrc pofUd on fc\»eral Heich's oppoiVe

and by tint Mean& divide their Force. 
Vet, aIthonj»h they began their March at 
Two o'clock :n the Morning, fucli was 
the Difficulry of Accefs. rliough I am con- 
vinced every Meanx were tried, that it was 
Ufe before they cfFeftcd it. 

When I found that the Enemy were gi- 
v/nc Wnyon aiJ Sides, 1 ordeied Lieut. Col. 
Scbrrs U^hr /nfantry, Brigadier >Wa\ftks 
Bii^^dCp und a Uivition of t^ Grcnaditt^ 

to a Plantafinn more to our Left, ^hfrm, 
Brieadier Hai/iland w«i to havp come down ? 
They drove offfomcofthe Fntmy pofled 
then- ; and the Light Infantry pofleiTcd 
tScmfilvftK nf a very advantageous Port op- 
vofMf to M'trne Gamier : To fopport them, 
I otde'td Brigadier Haviland** CnrpK^ 
whi^h had now paflfed, to their Right j 
the Divifirn of Grenadiers under Bn^^dirr 
Ctant. and Walfh'< Brigade, kept Poffef- 
Hon of this Upper Plantation, and cnnima< 
njcatcd with Haviland'k CoriMU The Ma- 
rines, which I had taken f rosin Brigadirr 
Rufane, I poded to cover tlic Road between 
the two Plantations. 

On the a^ch we began to ereA Batteriet 
on Morne Tartenfun, agamd the Citadel cf 
Fort Royal, but were much annoyed ra 
that, and the following Day, by the Enemy 
from Morne Gamier. Finding that it was 
ahfohitely neceflary to attack this Place to 
the Lcfr, where the Corps of Light Infantry, 
and Trigadier Haviland's Brigade were 
ported, 1 determined immediately to ereA 
Batteries a;?ainrt thefe of the Enemy which 
annoyed us. and which might alio cover oor 
PafTage of the Ravine. 

On the 27th, about four o'clock in the 
Evt-ning, the Enemy, under Cover of their 
Batteries, and with the grcateft Part of 
their Force, had the Temerity to attack the 
two Corps of Light Infantry and Brigadier 
Haviland's Brigade, in the Pofts they occu- 
pied ; but were received with fuch SteaiU- 
nefs, that they were immediately repuKed ; 
and fuch wab the Order of the Troops, that 
they parted the Ravine with the Enemy, 
feized their Batteries, and took Port there, 
being reinforced by Briga<)ier Walftt's Bri • 
gade, and the Diviiion of Grenadiers under 
Brigadier Grant, who immediately on flie 
Attack had marched to fupport them. 
Night was now come on ; hut M.ijor Leiand 
moving on to the Left with his Light Infan- 
try, and finding n6 Opporttion, continued 
his Route towards the Enemy's Redoubt, 
which he foon came up to, and took Poffl-f- 
iion uf, the Enemy, except a few Grena- 
diers, who were made Prifooers, having 
abandoned it. Their Troops retired into 
the Town and Citadel^ and the Militia dif- 
perfed in the Country. Brigadiers WaKh, 
Grant, and Havjland, immediately moved up 
to fupport the Light Infantry ; fo that at Nino 
o*Clv>ck at Night his Majerty's Troops 
were in Porte rtion of this very flrong Port, 
which entirely commanded the Citadel. 
Sq precipitate was the Enemy's Flight, 
that they left a Mortar loaded, and eight or 
nine Guns unfpiked, with a Quantiy of 
Ammunition and Provifions. The Cannon

^ »• My l.rrd, 

" I litl thb Honour of writing to your 
L'> dihip ilie 9th lull* u, from Port R'^yal, 
wliiCh went by tny \id dc Camp Miijor 
C4£es, who f4dcd trom ihcni;e in his Maje* 

fty*s Ship Nightingale, on the 10th f nftant \ 
a Duplicate of that Letter I now incloTe. 

** Jufl when I was about to cnnbark for 
the ReduAion of St. Peter*a, two Deputict 
arrived at Fort Royal on the lath Inftant, 
offering Terms of CapituUtion for the whole 
in and, on the Part of M. Le Vaflbr De U 
Touche. the Govenor-generml. Onthei^tb 
they received the AdmiraPs and my An- 
fwert to their Propofali, which they carried 
to St. Peter's ; and on the 14th returned 
with tt>e Capitulation figned. In Confe- 
quenceof which, I left Fort Royal the i ^th, 
with the Grenadiers of the Army, and the 
2d Brit^ade ; and on thefc Xowm^; Day took 
Pofleflion of this large and opulent Towo, 
with all the PoAs in the Neighboarlmod. 
The Enemy maiched out about 3x0 Gre- 
nadiers, who are embarked, and wiU fail 
immediately for France. M. Le Vaflbr Da 
la Touche, the Governor- General^ M. Rou- 
i)l€f Lieutenant- Ooveraor, and the Staff 
will fhortiy follow. 

" Indofed I fend your Lordfhip a Copy 
of the Capitulation for the Ifland, which we 
humbly hope will meet with hit Majefty'a 
graciout Approbation. Commodore Swan* 
ton IS now off the Granades with a ^uadroa 
of Men of War ; and I purpofe fending im- 
meduitely Brig. Gen. Welch with ihe stb 
Brigade, and the Corps of Light Infantry 
under Lieut. Col. Sa>tt, in order to reduce 
Jtliat and the other lAands. I have undoubt- 
ed Intelligence, that the Number of white 
Men in the Grenades do not exceed 500 } 
and in the other Iflands not quite fo many. 
, '* 1 fhould have proceeded upon this Set- 
Vice m>felf, had I not thought it of more 
k^onfequence for his Majefty*! Service my 
remaining here at this critical Time, when, 
vy what we can learn, a Rupture with Spain 
^y he daily expcAisd t And here I am alfo 
It fiind to fettle miny material Affaiis re- 
lative to the Security of tbisConqueft. 

** Indeed, I have good Reafou to believe, 
|hat Brigadier Walih will meet with very 
littie Obftru^ion in his Operations. How- 
ever, fhould he not immediately fucceed, I 

uU move that Way with a larger Force, 
jknd make no Doubt to compel them to a 

* Jp^cly Surrender. 
T" It

^me an Exprefs unril I could have inform- 
al your Lordfhip of the ReduQion of tlie 
or her Iflands mentioned in his Majcfty*s In - 
Ifcruflions. — But as thi^ in.ind is now com- 
pleatly reduced to his Majefty*p Obedience, 
i was apprehenlive that a Delay, In fignU 
fji'ing this intereiUng Event, might be at- 
t^ded with fome bad Confequence at thia 
critical Junfture. I therefore fend this by

If mufl be allowed, that a Country which 
takes no Care to encourage an Acceffinn of

As for Example $ the Colonies in Ame-

But this can he no Argument a^infl Great

have been guilty of great Impolicy tn mak«
