From  SATURDAY,  April  3,  to  TUESDAY,' April 6, 1790. 8812 MONDAY, April 5. irrww the LONDON GAZETTE. Whitehall, April j. fe3^^^^�  came from their gallery to the Altar, where they received the Holy Sacrament, and made the ufual offerings. Being Collar-day, the King, Prince of Wales, and Knights attendants, wore the collar and ihfignia of their refpe&ive Orders. After the Royal Family returned from Chapel, (there being no Drawing-room) their Majeilks and the Princefles fet off in two coaches to Windier Lodge. The Princeof Wales returned, in the fame (late as he came, to Carleton-houfe, whera his Royal Highnefs". dined, and in the evening went to Newmarket. Yefterday the King notified to the Lord in Waiting that he would hold a Levee on Wednefday next at St. James's, to receive his Serene Highnefs the Prince of Hefle Caflcl, who arrived at Grehier's hotel, in Alberaarle-ftreet, with the Princefs, on Thurfday night. The Queen will alfo have a -Drawing-room at St. J aniens, to. re-teive the Princefs. On Saturday her Royal Highnefs Princefs Sophia, of Gloucester, was confirmed at the Chapel-Royal, St. James's, by the Lord Bilhop of London, to whom her Highnefs was introduced by her father, the Duke of Glouceiter. The Emprefs of Ruflia was entirely recovered from her indifpofition on the 9th' ult. and is faid to have declared her determination not to acquiefce at any rate in the ceflion of Dantzic and Thorn to Pruffia. The Elector of Saxony has agreed to accept the Crown of Poland on the death of the prefent King, on the following conditions : ill. That the Polifh Nation fhall offer it to him. 2d. That it fhall reman hereditary to the Houfe of Saxony. 3d. That it mull be done with the confent, and through the guarantee of the neighbouring powers. On Thurfday lall the ufual annual chanty was diftributed at Whitehall Chapel. This inftitution is of a very ancient date, being above 300 years old, and is diliributed every Thurfday preceding Good Friday. About twelve o'clock fifty-three men, and as many women, attended. The Sub-Almoner prelidea at dinner, when a piece of beef and ale was diftributed to each perfon by the King's ale porters. After dinner frefti herrings, drisd falmon, and fait fiih, were diftributed. At three in the afternoon Cathedral Service was in part performed, and a piece of cloth and a piece of linen were diftributed to each man ; and a piece of linen, a pair of (hoes and (lockings to each woman. The fervice was again re-fumed, and an Anthem, by Dr. Boyce, was fung by Guife, Bellamy, and Gore. A goblet of wine was afterwards diftributed, and the Sub-Almoner and the people drank " the King and his Bounty." Two (hillings and two (ilver twopenny pieces in money were then diftributed to each perfon. Another goblet of wine fucceeded, and a folemn Welling from the Sub-Almoner finifhed the ceremony. The key of the French Baftille has been fent over by the Marquis de la Fayette to Mr. Paine, an American, in order to be transmitted by him to General Wafhington, as a glorious token of triumphant liberty over defpotic oppreflion. Convent Garden  Theatre.--The   ellimate of the whole property, from the late fale, amounts to 68,oool. When Beard and Rich, &c. fold to Colman, Powell, Harris, Dagge, and Leake, the price was 6o,oool. Cohnan fold his quarter to Mr. Harris for 20,00(51 Da ge and Leake fold their tiares to Mr. Harris in the fame proportion. Drury Lane Theatre, which is a kafehold, fold by Garrick (his moiety) to MefT. Sheridan, Linley, anc3 Ford, for 33,0001. The leafe of the houle from the Duke of Bedford has but four years to come, but the leafe is ready to be renewed. This day the various fpcctacles, regular and irregular, are opened ; and the Metropolis will pour forth its multitudes in every direction to pay their falutations to the feafon. It would be a curious calculation to afcertain the number of people within the Bills of Mortality, that will devote this day to pleafure, and the fum of money they will fpend. On Saturday at -Guildhall No. 22,622 was drawn a prize of ioool. No. 43,520, a prize of iool. and No. 34,229, 1,469, 44,093, 37,523, and 32,296, prizes of 50I. each. George Stracton, Efqt of Tew Park, Oxford-fhire, has given the living of Great Tew to the Rev. Mr. Naih, Vicar of Enftone, void by the death of the Rev. James Afhton. The Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's, notwith-flanding the anertions to the contrary, we are af-fured, have not as yet given leave for the erection of a monument in that Cathedral to the memory of Mr. Howard, or any other perfon. By a letter from Thurfo, in Caithnefs, of the 14th of March, we learn, that a dreadful thunder ilorm had happened there, accompanied with flames of lightning. The lightning did not do any confiderable damage, though it ftruck upon a houfe, and made its way into it in feveral directions. The explofion refembled the difcharge of a cannon. Yefterday morning, at five o'clock, a fire broke out in a warehoufe at King's-head-yard, Tooley-ftreet; but afliilance being readily procured, it was foon got under* after much alarming the neighbourhood. !On Satnrday lad a Mr. M. who was intituled to fell 500GI. in the 3 per cent, confols. abfeonded - with the fame. Application was made to the Public - office; Bow - ftreet; in confequence of which, meiTengers were difpatched to all the fea-ports to ftop his going abroad. A foreigner whofe name ifVilloni, and who was employed at Daublgny's, in St. James's ftreet, as confectioner, on Saturday night abfeonded from that houfe, and has taken with him a fmall iron cheft, containing near two thoufand guineas. On Saturday evening the Coroner's Inqueft fat on the body of a young woman who was found poifoned at a gentleman's chambers !n the Temple ; when, after an examination of witnefles, they brought in their verdict Accidental Death. At Kingfton afiizes an action was tried at the fuit of Mr. Curling LeiTee, of St. Saviour's pa-rifh, Southwark, againft Mr. Hedger, of the Dog and Duck. The action was laid for the damage arifing to the plaintiff from the- defendant's ereclipn of a new market in St. George's Fields, to the prejudice of that in the Borough, fecured \xy two Acts of Parliament, (28 and 30*, Geo. II.) which enacts, that no market fhall fee erected within 1000 yards of that in the Borough. Evidence being heard in proof of the plaintiff's right, an objection Was darted to his leafe. An offer was then made by the defendant of a certain annual payment to the parifli; which being recommended by Mr. Jullice Gould, the caufe was withdrawn, and is in a (late of adjuftment. Another quellion was tried at the fame aflizes to determine the Jurifdidtion of the City of London and County of Surrey to certain Jurifdic-tions in Southwark. The profecution was brought againft the City Magillrates for granting a licence to Mr. Hedger, of the Dog and Duck. Previous to the Jury being fworn, the Recorder objected to the competency of the Sheriff to return the Jury, or the Jury to try the caufe, as being parties interefted, and on feveral other grounds. A fpecial verdict was given, ftating all the facts, and referring them to the determination of the Court of King's Bench. At Leicefter aflizes, a Clergyman, aged 63, convicted of felcnioufly folemnizing a marriage in the church of Frilby, without publication of banns or licence of marriage firft had and obtained, was ordered to be tranfported for 14 years. At the aflizes at York the following prifoners received fentence of death, viz. Thomas Lafl-ley, John Stephens, John Booth, Edward] Williams, Lydia Williams, and Thomas Lambert, for highway robbery; James Hartley, James Hall, John Fofter, John Proftor, Ifabella Chapman, for burglary ; John Gills, otherwife Bsft, for horfeftealing; and John Hodgkinfon, and George Stocks, for Grand Larceny, without the benefit of the ftatute. Before the Judge left the city he reprieved John Booth, Lydia Williams, Thomas Lambert, James Hall, John Fofter, John Proctor, Ifabella Chapman, John Hodgkinfon, and George Stocks.
