[/Vice Three-Pence.] SATURDAY, Aucust 2,  1788. Vol. XXXIX- Sunday's & Tuesday's POSTS. FOREIGN.'AFFAIRS, Stockholm, ('Sweden} July 4. ' E have this day received the agreeable intelligence, that his Majefty is happily arrived off the coait of Finland, asalfo theSwedifb, Fin-fctr.de-fe, and German tranfports, confifting of ijp wards of jo fail.-Additional regiments are already embarked from Calfcroon, and the other northern ports, for Finland, where it is faid, the armv, thus reinforced, will confift of 50,000 fighting men. Frakcfort, (Germany J July 5. The little town of Storkenback, which has extenfive Cdllico-works, was almoft reduced to aflies on the 14th of June, bv a fire which lafted fourteen hours, and deftroyeel 201 houfes-the lofsts efii-inated at one million of florins. Mac r id, (Spain) June25. The laft letters from Malaga advite, that Commodore Crof-|>y, commander of the Englifh fquadron, had "left Gibraltar, and was .wived at Tangier. Hariie, (HcUandj July 17. This day all �*:e foreign" Mimflers, without exception, were introduced to bis Serene Highneisthc Stadt-boldei, to compliment him on paffing the new fyfiem of confederation, and were gracioufly received. Monday next is appointed for the Orange Fcaft, after which the Prince begins his tour ; the Princefs and daughter will go as far as .Rotterdam, and then turn off to Nimeguen. A courier has arrived at Warfaw from Pr. Cobourg to Count Stackelberg, the Ruffian AtLuaffador there, with the important intelligence that the Empiefs's naval forces in the Li-man have obtained a complete victory ovei t'-.e Ottoman fleet; the Admiral's (hip, that of the Vice-Admiral, and four otihers, were burnt, and two taken, together with the Captain Pacha's flag, and between 3000 and 4oooprifoners. Thefe great advantages were preceded by an enj^.gement between the gun-boats and flat-bot-timed ones belonging to the two fleets, in which ihe Ruffians had greatly the advantage. Paris, (France) July 22. The kingdom is again put into a greater fetment than ever ; the tumults are more general, the infurgents more defperate and daring, and it is impoffible now to fay where the obQinacy of the Sovereign, or the rage of the people will end. The affair of the 16th inftant when fevenieen pcifons were conveyed clofe prifoners to the Bailile, (among whom are three or four of our moli popular nobility, particularly the Marquis de la Fayette, fo famous for his exploits in America) has kindled frefh fire. The people affemble in great numbers, and when the fun has hid bis bead, and darknefs comes on, the fireets are filled with a mob, who talk of no lefs than aiTail-ir.g the Baftile and Chatelet, and releafing all the prifoners, uniefsr their favourites are again fet at liberty. The Governor fails not daily to make teports of thefe difagreeable circumQanccs. There are, however, troops here in plenty, if they could produce quiet. LONDON, July 25-26. Yeflerday difpatches were received at the Secretary of State's office, Whitehall, from Sir James Harris, which were forwarded to the K:ng at Cheltenham. Iu the economy of the Royal Family at Cheltenham, we arc informed that her Majefty has paiticularlv foi bidden the ufe of white bread at her own table, not from any parfimonious principle, but from the conviction of its being lefs fcealthv than brown. Yeflerday morning the Ficnch Ambrtflador fat cat for Dover in his way 10 France, from whence his attendants expeil he will return in a very fbort time. Particulars of the prefents lately fent by Tip-poo Sultan to his Moft Chriftian Majefty: A re-mifflon, in the firft place, of 19 lacks of rupees, balance acknowledged in his favor by the Marquis of BufJV, General Ducbemin, and M. de SuftVein, on account of the war. A crown valued at 12 lacks.-A ftar, and ornaments for the ribband, eftimated at twelve lacks.-A fword half a lack.--Pearls to the Queen, worth 12 lacks, and a bed of folid gold. In all about half a core of rupees, or confiderably more than half a million fleriing. Admiral Gower is ordered to Portfmouth, where the (hips are to be difmilTed to their re-fpefctive ports, and his command terminates. Letters from New-England fay, that their fiflieries have nearly wholly fallen off; and are Tendered fo inccnfideiable by the great exertions of the Englifh, as to become of no fervice to that country; the expert hands of Nar.tukct are providing for themfelves accordingly, and mifs no opportunity of finding employ in the Britifh veffels. This day's mail brings us difpatches, which contain an account of the brilliant fuccefs which has attended the arms of Ruffia at the mouth of the great river Borifthenes, which empties itfelf into the Black Sea a little below the new city of Cherfon. On 'he e6th of June, the Turkifh fleet, confifting of 57 fhips of the line, appeared off the entrance of the Borifthenes. The Turkifh fort-refs, Oczakow, (lands on the weflcrn fide of the river; the Ruffian fortrefs, Kimburn, lies nearly oppofite to it on the eaftern fhore. The Prince of NalTau, Commander in Chief cf the Ruffian fleet, with Vice Admiral Paul Jones, as his fecond, lav at anchor under the fc-uns of Kimburn, waiting for the Turks, who feetned difpofed to attack them.-The fea ran very high, and the wind was ftrong on the Ruffian fhore. The old Turkifh Admiral, under ' -efe difadvamages, had the madnefs to enter ' mouth of the river. The Ruffian com. . .mders futfered him to take this ftep without oleftaiion ; but no fooner were theTurks completely embayed, than the Prince of NalTau and i.is colleague began to move. �S^/- The hring on both fides at the firft onfet was " tremendous ; but for want both of fkill and dif-cipline, thz largeft fhips of the Turkifh fleet prefcntlv run abound, particularly the fhips of theTuikifb Admiral and Vice-Admiral. The Ruffian fquadron now grappled wrth the Tuiks. The conflict was dreadful. The.bat-tcries on the fhore, as well as the fhips, all joining in the fight. The Tuiks defended themfelves with aftoiiifhing rcfolution; but very few of their fhips could gain the Black Sea. Some ran foi {belter under the guns-of Oczakow. The capital (hips, on board of which were the Turkifh Admiral and Vice-Admiral, and thiee other (hips of the line, were blown up.-The old Captain Pacha efcaped in a fmall boat.- Many of the fmaller veffels were driven on fhore, and the whole fleet was entirely feparated. The Ruffians got poffeffion of the Admiral's flag, and have taken 4000 prifoners. Paul Jones diflinguifbed himfolf by wonderful activity and bravery : and the whole of the Ruffian feamen behaved with uncommon fpirit. It has been remarked of General Paoli, that regularly in the courfe of every month he pays a vifi- to the King's Bench. As the General feerued to have no acquaintance there, fome one was induced to afk him his motives. He replied, with that opennefs which diflinguifb.es his character, that he had no other motive than one, which, tbtiugh lingular, he was not afham-ed to avow : it is, faid the General, to contemplate the fpot.where the valiant Theodore, who was my predeceffor in command, and who furpafled me' in merit, as in misfortune, fell a victim to poverty and anguifh. Colonel Macnamaia, with two other gentlemen, were laft night calling at a voter's houfe, which Mr. Fox had jufl left.-A woman, with an infant in her arms, called out, Lord Hood for ever?". A ruffian, in an orange and blue cockade, immediately aimed a blow at the head of the child. To fave the infant, Col Macna-mara caught the blow on his arm : on which the villain immediately made another blow, and knocked him down.--Ten other men with the fame cockades rufhed out, and beat Mr. Macnamara as he lay, till they imagined he was dead-they then ran away. Mr. Macnamara has received fome very deep wounds in his head and neck.-When Mr. Potts, the Surgeon, left him laft night, a fever wasexpefled-the confequence of which is uncertain. One of the other gentlemen was much wounded-the other efcaped unhurt. An exprefs was immediately difpatched to Mrs. Minamata, who was in the country with her children.- What may be the event, no one can tell. Saturday morning betwixt two and three o'clock was a riot in Sackville-flreet, attended with much bloodfhed. Happy effects ef the unref rained freedom ef eledion-fenteffkiallv from the Weftminfter infirmary :-" In confequence of the election riots on Tuefday, twenty perfons were fent to the Weftminfter hofpital, feven of whom were fo dangeroufly wounde-d as to be obliged to be admitted in-patients, and their recovery is very doubtful, feveral of their fkulls being fractured." A grand match of cricket was played at Eton on Thurfday laft, between the gentlemen of E-ton and Windfor, and the young gentlemen of Eton College, in which the latter were victorious by 49 runs in one innings. The young gentlemen went through every part of the game with great fkill and fteadinefs. Mr. Bainbridge, Mr. Metcalfe, Lord Dalkeith, and Mr. Donni-thorn, batted with peculiar fuccefs, and got an hundred runs off their own batts. Mr. Wcfley and Mi. Cooper particularly diftinguifhed them-felves as bowlers; Mr. Hore as a wicket-keeper, and Mr. Jones as a long flop. The young gentlemen headed 140 runs the tuft innings, when their antagonifls could not procure fifty either innings, three only of which were byes. This triumph is much greater to the young gentlemen, as bets run greatly againft them, and as their adverfaries had been beat but once before thefe lad 13 years. There was a vafl concourfe of people in the field. Yeflerday morning, at three o'clock, arrived at Newgate f:om Newcafile upon Tyne, Mr. Townfend, one of the officers of Bow-fireet, with a noted pickpocket in his cuftody, who was removed by writ of habea>corpus from that town by order of Mr. Juftice Grofe, for privately dealing from the perfon of -Haviland Le Mefurier, Efq. a filk purfe. containing 23 guineas and a half, and for which felony he ftand's Outlawed. What has lately happened at the Pott-office in Chefler fhould be a caution to Poftmafters how they employ ignorant little boys in the bulinefs of receiving or forting letters. John Brown, a boy no more than twelve years old, was employed in the Pofl-Office of Chefler. He had heard that money was fometimes put undei the feals of letters, and fo conveyed to the perfon to whom they were addreffed. He wifhed to get at fuch money, becaufe he thought he might take it without a poflibility of difcovery on the part of his employers. He accordingly broke open the letters that were delivered by the fervants of two of the moft wealthy Merchants in Chefter, as he thought it moft likely that he fhould find money under the feals of fuch letters, for he had not the leaf! idea that money could be remitted by Bills of Exchange or Bank Notes. He accordingly opened thefe letters : In one of them he found three Bank Notes of 10I. each; in another a Bank Note of 300I. and Bills of Exchange to a ftill larger amount. Dif-appointed in the hope of finding money under the feals, he did not know what to do with the Bills and Notes, with the nature and value of which he was unacquainted: He gave them away as pretty things to fome of his playfellows as ignorant as himfelf, and took care to deftroy the letters, as an effectual way to prevent a difcovery that he had opened them. Some time after a Gentleman buying fruit at a fruit-ftand, faw a piece of paper about fome fruit, which he took up, and finding it to be part of a Bank Note, he afked the owner of the fruit, who was a poor ignorant woman, where fhe had got that paper, and if fhe had any more of it; fhe faid fhe had got it from John Brown, and upon fearching her bafket, found fome more pieces, which being joined to the firft, fortunately form- ed the whole 300I. Bank Note. Some other Notes were afterwards traced to a little play-fellow of Brown's, who bad made ufe of them in a necelfary, where two of them of 10I. each, were found and recovered. It is faid that the Poftmafter-Genernl, in companion of the offender's youth, does not intend to prefer a capital indictment againft him, but thinks that in fuch a cafe as the prefent a lefs fevcre punifhment than death may anfwer the ends of public Juftice. Bv yefterdav's poft, we learn that on Friday laft the gallery of the Perth Theatre gave way durine the performance of Macbeth.-There were above three hundred people in it, many of whom were dangeroufly wounded, and feveral paft recovery. It was not then pofitively afcer-tained what number of lives were loft. Extratl of a letterfrom Dublin, July 10. " Mr. Palmer, Comptroller of the'Poft-Of-fice, London, has been here on a vifit for a few days to his friends in the Infh Poft Office.-His reception has been fuch as reflects not lefs honour on his abilities, than highly grateful to his' feelings. It is perhaps unexampled in any in-ftance, the determined oppofition this gentleman experienced in his attempts to eftablifh one of the greateft improvements England can boaft, and which nothing ever could have effected but the determined perfeverance which'marks genius fupported by ftrong fenfe. Mr. Palmer had in office to contend with every effort that jealous envy or powerful malice could fuggeft to biaft the undertaking-every engine was fecretly employed to ruin the eflablifhment, to blaft his credit His fole fupport was that of Mr. Pitt, and the confeioufnefs of the utility, fafety, and practicability of his plan.   Perfeverance has triumphed over every difficulty.-The Mail Coach Plan is now eftablifhed through almoft every part of Britain ;' every town echo's with its praife-every man in trzde unites in the genera! approbation of its not being lefs calculated for the difpatch of bufinefs, ihe protection of property, than the accommodation of the traveller. It fhould not be forgot, that from the very firft commencement of this falutary plan, and the extenlion of it to Holyhead, the Poftmaf-ters-General and the gentlemen in that department here took up the matter moft warmly, and fupported it with an ardour that reflect* highly on their good fenfe. Mr Palmer, though not perfonallv acquainted with every fingle gentleman in the Infh office, felt the weight of the obligation, and feized the firft opportunity lei-fure would allow-of paving the gentlemen his refpefb in perfon. Mr. Palmer was introduced by his friends, at the Sheriff's Feaft at the Thol-fel, on Tuefday laft, and received a marked and pleafing reception from the Citizens of Dublin. Every arrangement is now made by the Poft-mafters General of Ireland, for the eflablifhment of Mail coaches. The contractors have engaged to commence running on the 5th of April next. His Excellency has approved fo highly of the plan, that he lias ordered two mail-coaches to be bu'.lt by Hutton, as models, which are intended to be prefents to the contractors. All their other carriages are to be built to exaflly correfpond, and agrecr.ble to that model, which is the f�me of the patent rnail-coitches now uied on all the roads in England.

" A very unlucky accident happened here laft night; fome young men having affembled at one of the inns, after drinking a gteat quantity of liquor, an univerfal quarrel arofe about a young lady ; firft they began by imprecating one another; not contented with this, tkey threw glaffes, bottles, pulled one another's hair, kicked over the chairs, tables, &c. and at laft came to blows; in this univerfal fcutfie the floor fell in, by which feveral were killed, others had their legs, arms, ribs, &c. broke, there are many at this prefent moment not expected to live. The mafter ;>nd miftrefs of the inn were both terribly bruifed by attempting to quiet the rioters ; the latter was {jiven over by the Doctors laft night, but is a ittle better this morning. The number killed, bruifed, &c. is faid to amount to near eight." COUNTRY NEWS. Yarmo uth, July 21. The vaQ fwarm of herrings, furrounding the high fhoresof Berwick and St. Tobb's, were fmartly attacked by gannets darting on them in a furprifing manner.
