MSI -Cjv3-,.0ME troubles have broke >: out in our three Counties ; the peafants have revolted againft their Lords, and refufe to pay the contribution. Many t'/i^j Noblemens houfes have *T^^^W%&Mi been PiIlased b> them� &^^&!&tt$�'itt-� and many diforders com-ik%*Sg�&^W> mitted. We I \ -jr^.t *-�-   < mitted . - f by Ietcers from Efclavonia, that the T'uks of Sanjaluka continue to tranfport the beft of t eir effects to Travenick and Sarajevo to put t -m in fafefy, and th it the Bofnians are aflem-b ng on the frontiers m great numbs-s. The Turks of Banjalaka treat their Chriftian fubjedte much better than other countries of the Ottoman empire. They are fuffered to hear maf? every Sunday, which is celebrated by a Francifcan of Jvanfeg, but in the open country out of the city. The Francifcans in Bofnia appear like-Mahometans ; they wear the fame drefs a|. the Turks of condition, with whifkers, a turban, piftols, along knife, and a fabre, and it is only when they take off their turban and mew their tonfure that they are known to be Monks. Thefe Francifcans have their own Bifhop, whom they chufe from amongft themfelves. Rome, March 19. The disturbances at Avig-noa-afflift the Pope very much ; but there is fome hope of matters being made up there, particularly as his Holinefs has refblyed to agree to all the defires of the people of Avignon, upon condition that they fend two Deputies here to fettle the terms upon which this affair is to be made up; neverthelefs, as we learn that the people of the wholexounty of Avignon are. in arms, and re-folved to abqlifii the duties collected in the name of the Pope, there is fome reafon to apprehend that his Holinefs may lbfe all but the title of Prote&or of that county. Th^re- has alio been a fermentation at Bologna, which may have ferious confluences; and not-wit-hEaading the vigilance and threats of the Governor Cardinal Archetti, the people continue to circulate feditioup papers, and perftfi that the troops mall quit the town. A Confjilory will fhortly be held to appoint an Apafofic Legate to the Diet for the election of a KjJRgof the Ronw**^^^ LONDON.

'^According to the laft advices from China, a dreadful famine rages through moll of the provinces of that empire, but particularly in that of Canton. Thofe who dwell on the rivers, who are very numerous, feel lefs of its effects than thofe on land ; and the diftreffes of the latter are considerably heightened by civil diffentions.

Charles the Firft had a porter of the name of Evans of fuch gigantic ftature, that one day, at a Court Mafquerade, while the Nobility were viewing him with aftonifhment, he fuddenly pulled Jeffhry Hudjon, the Court dw*rf, oat of his pocket.

Yefterday morning about feven o'clock, a due was fought, near Hyde-park, by two gentlemen of the Temple, when one of them received a ball in his left arm, and the other had his hat fhot off; the feconds then interfered, and the parties were reconciled.

A motion was propofed by Sir �William Smith, and, after a debate, carried in the affirmativs, to refill the ufurped authority (as it was termed) of the noble Judge.   We cannot venture to prophefy how or where this bufinefs tvill end : that gaojs fliould be regulated is certainly neceilary ; and, till higher opinions contradict the legality of this fine, we are under a , Jieceihty of condoling, that the learned and noble Peer has not in this inftance exceeded his power.
