Deal, February 15. laden with Bale Goods, Fruit, and Wine i they are in hopes of faving moft Part of the Cargo, but the Ship they think will be loll.

Remain, his Majelty's Ships the Seaford, the Granada and Serpent Bombs, and the Indaftry and Difpatch Tenders ; and the Prince Frederick, Waide, for Oporto. Wind W. S. W. An Ext rail of a Letter from the Hague. ' In the Preadvice which the Province of Holland has ' fent to the States General, it is faid, that their Noble ' and Great Mightineflcs acknowledging the Validity of ' the Engagements contracted by tue Republick in its � Acceffion to the Treaty concluded in the Year 1731, ' judges, 1. That it ought to pay to her Majefty of Hun-' gary the 1600000 Florins, which has been heretufore � granted to her, and of which 440000 have been already < paid by that Province, on account of its Contingent. * 2. That the Republick Ihould caufe 20000 Men, at ieair, <� to march, in order to be put under the Drfpofition of � that Princefs. 3. That it is neceffary to concert with ' the King of Great Britain and her Majeity of Hungary, � concerning the further Meafures neceffary to be taken : ' And, 4. and in the lalt Place, That it would be iikewife � necefl'ary to concert with ofher Powers, who ought � naturally to infereft tkemfelves in the common Qiufe. ticu!ari ' alledging, that be had Orders to leai/c this Court, in caje ' the Republick JboulJ refolve intnolably to execute the ' Engag'tMent's whi&ftifTreaty Jbe is bound to maintain ' ivith the SQueen of JfflDgjuy j ami that the Marquis de ' Fenelon .will do the fame. A great Noife is n^.ae. about gives great 4 weight to the Meafures taken by the Court of Great * Britain, beCattfi^tis thought that the States General will 4 concur with thofe of the Province of Holland, and that 4 the Kings of PruJJia, Poland, and Denmark, together ' with the Emprefs of RuJJia, will alfo join in tne fame ' Meafures, who being^United, will be more than a Match ' for France. To avoid the Conferences of ib great a ' confederated Force, 'tie thought this laft-mention'd Court ' will depart from her Engagements with the Emperor, ' and make her Peace. M. de Fenelon is of a very diffe-' rent Opinion, or at leaft exprejtes himfdf quite other-1 wife, and fays, that this Conduct of the Republick tends ' rather to kindle than extinguifh a g'.neral War j and ' that his Court placing no longer that Confidence in the ' pacifick Difpofition of their High Mightineffes it has ' nitherto done, will take more vigorous Meafures to oppofe ' on all Sides the Defigns of her Enemies. Yet the Refo-1 lution taken by the Province of Holland is not of fo much ' Confequence- as it feems to be, if it be confider'd, that it is ' very doubtful whether the fix other Provinces will come ' into the Line, particularly thofe of Utrecht and Guelder-' land; fo that the March of the 20000 Men to the Relief ' of the Queen of Hungary, I mean the Refolution taken ' that they fhall march, is an Affair which will yet meet ' with much Oppofition, and which may be agreed to ' when the Seafon is too far advanced, and be of little ' Service. All this Doubt is founded on a- Letter wrote ' by the Province of Utrecht to the States General, and ' one other to their Deputies ; befides, it is well known ' that there are* others of the fame Opinion, and that the ' City of Dort has protefted againft the Refolution taken by ' the States of their Province ; and that in like manner the ' Province of Utrecht' will proteft againft the Refolution ' taken by the Generality, in cafe the fame fhould prove ' conformable to that taken by the Province of Holland.''

He had by two Wives twenty Children, to whom he gave Education as well as his Circumftances would allow, fome to his own Employ, and fome he put to Trades, &c. About forty Years ago he was a moft famous and greatly-applauded Quaker-Speaker, particularly at a yeitriy Meeting held at Cocker-mouth in the fame County, for which his zealous Brethren made him a Collection of 601. but he not thinking that equivalent, as he expected more, made known to them all, that he would continue Aminadab no longer, but return to his former Employ of Bagpiper, in whicn he continu'd till the Day of his Death, winch has been a great Reflection on the Quakers in that Part ever fmce, by the Wordsi &ay thou favj him not.

SIR, THE Author who addreffes himfclf to the Publick in your Paper of Monday laft, upon the Subject of foreign Cambricks, fays, that we pay to France annually about 2000001. for that Commodity, and that we tranfport about one third to our Plantations, &c. there then .remains about 133000I. the Duties upon which, he fays, is about 120001. He muft mean the old Duties only; for the laft Seffions of Parliament there was half as much as the old, an additional Duty laid upon the Importation of Cam-bricks, to be applied as a Bounty for the Encouragement of our own Manufactures. Suppofmg thefe Facts to be true, how happens it that no Complaint is made of the Confumption of French Wines, which coft more than'double this Sum, and upon which there is not any thing rais'd for the Encouragement of our Poor, as there is upon Cambricks. The fir ft has rais'd an Emulation in part of our Dominions to make this Commodity ourfelves, and in time may excel what is made abroad, as we have done in many other Inft.-.nces ; but wherefore fhould Wine be fuch a Favourite as to have no Obfervations at all made upon it ? SIR, YESTERDAY palling by Cheapfide, I happen'd to be a Spectator of the worrying to Death one of the human Species; I need not tell you it was the pillorying of a Sodomite : As it is a Crime of the blackeft Dye, and fo repugnant to the Well-being of Society, nothing but Death fhould atone for it : But mall the Law pafs one Sentence, and a Mob execute another ? There is fomething very fbocking to fee a Creature over-whelm'd with Guiit and Ignominy given up to the Rage and Sport of a mercilefs Populace, who with the moft indecent and barbarous Ufage fhall hurry the Wretch out of Life, unthinkingly, (or as Shakefpear has it, No Reckoning made) into Eternity, to the no fmall Scandal of a civiliz'd Nation. It certainly merits the Attention of the Magiftracy of this City, for every rational Man can't but think it highly reflects on the Dignity and Order of it.
