Came dow�, the London,  Bowell, and the John and Weft the Sc. George, Dearing, for Lifbon; and the Charming Peggy, Miller, for Oporto, and remain, with the Men of War and Merchant-Ships.' _       Wind N. W. Yefterday arrivM a Mail from France. M. Chaurelin, who has been corrfirTd at Bourges ever fince the Year 1737, has been fent by Order of tfcie Court to JJfare, a fmall Town in Auvergne* This Alteration is attributed to a Memorial fign'd by him, and delivered to the King by one of his Ffiends, who thought to make h?s Court by fo doing, in which Memorial that late MinSter has not fhewct the Reipeft which is thought by the�ourt �$ be due to the Conduit of the late Cardinal. An Extra3 of a Litter from a foreign Minifter atPAKis, dated �eb,  IO. 1 The Affair is determined at Verfailles, the King has � aftually begun to govern the Kingdom himfeif at the 4 Age of thirty-two Years. Lewis XIV. rathe* chofe to  ivers, and conducted into one of the ill Houfes in the faid Alley, where fhe endeavour1 d to pick his Pocket, but his Breeches being Leather, greafy and ftiff, and the Pocket very deep, ihe could not accomplifh her Defign, and therefore took a Cafe-Knife out of a Drawer, and with one "Stroke cut the-Waggoner's Breeches quite thro1 to his Thigh. The Money and Blood run about the Floor; they both fcrambled for the Money; and on the Woman's calling out for James, Thomas, George, &c. the Man run out of the Houfe with what Money Jie gathered from the Floor. Now the Waggoner would willingly get the Woman apprehended and pro fee u ted, but cannot- negieft his Bufinefs to ftay in Town, fo that Madam will for this time efcape being brought to Juftice. - ItVapprehended, that were the Conftables and Watchmen to exert the Authority given tlvrm by a late Aft of Parliament for regulating the Nightly .War* in.Jthe-City .of London, wiereby the Watchmen     - To the worthy Electors of St  Alba February 3, 1742-, the Borough N *S. will, * ,that however as it � Days and the Hours that he will do Bufinefs witn his * Minifters, who are even to go to him to Cboijy wiienever ' his Majefty fliould be there with the Dutchefs of Chateau-� Roux. The Jefuits are exceffively mortified that Cardinal 1 Tencin has faiPd of being Prime Minifter. There is ' now great Likelihood that he will go and plant Cabbages < with his female Favourite in his Archbilhopiick of Lyons. * His Majefty has given the beft of the. Eccleftaftical Pre- * ferments enjoy'd by the late Cardinal to M. Boyer, here-' roibre Father of the Oratory, who is now Governor of ' the Dauphin, and who, as Cardinal de Fleury was the * antient Biihop of Frejus% is antient Bifhop" of Mirepoix. * He certainly is a very worthy Prelate, whofe Integrity * the Air of the Court has not yet been able to corrupt, 4 and whofe virtuous Sentiments, which have been imbibed, * or at leaft improvM in the School of the Oratory, ftill 4 remain untainted. This Biihop will in a Day or two c fcke his Turn to do Bufinefs with his Majefty, in refpedt 4 toEcclefiaftical Affairs. By this Way which his Majefty *' has taken of proceeding, all Cabals fubfide, M. Chauvelin ' ftill continues in his Exile, the Dukes de Noaiiles and ' Richlieu out of the Management of publics Affairs, and 4 according to all Probability, the Pcrfon who will have 4 the greateft Influence will be M. de Maurepas, a very ' able and an upright Minifter, for whom his Majefty has * always hzd a ftrong Inclination, and for whom he has ~~ even in the Life-time of ' ever difcoverM a high Efceem, It is not yet determin'd who feail Cardinal de Fleury. � fucceed M. d'Argenfon as Secretary at War, who a few r Days ago refign'd that Employment.'
