The Guardian man of war iruck on the ice about ten days after lhe left the Cape.-A pretty plentiful fupply of cows, goats, and poultry had been laid in at the Cape, proper for the long voyage they had to accomplifti.-All the crew were in high fpirits at their departure.-When fhe firft ftruck, fome hopes were entertained that the leak might be flopped, but the means tried' were foon found ineffectual and fruitlefs.-There were five boats in all, and thefe were then the only refource.-One of .thefe was foon ftove, and fome people perifhed immediately, a dreadful fight to the furvivors, which (hewed them their perilous fituation.- Mr. Rieu would not leave the ftiip-He was feen walking on deck by the people in the boat under the command of Mr. Clements, the Mafter, when at a confiderable diftance.-One of the other boats happening to want a quadrant, folicited one from Mr. Clements-in the interval of delivering it, Mr. Crouther, the Chaplain, jumped out of the boat in which he was, into that where Mr. Clements had the direction,, and. hy that means- preferved his life.-No accounts have been received of the other boats ; without a fufficient fupply of water, and in a boifterous ocean, their lituation muft have been dreadful. It is not true that Captain Riou remained alone on board the Guardian. Several of the bands continued with him, and they had not given up all hopes of faving the fhip, as they were within thirty-five leagues of the pretended fituatroiT of Kerguellan'j Land. It was, we much fear, in the idle fearch of that land in the clouds, that the dreadful calamity happened. , Among thofe who are fuppofed to have perifhed by the wreck of the Gu.trdian man of war, is the Hon. Mr. Pitt, only fon and heir of Lqcd Camel-ford, whj embarked as a volunteer to Botany-bay, from mere, motives of curiofity. He is reported to have ftaid with the Captain until the laft, and to have fhared the deftiny of that brave but unfortunate officer.

The thanks of the Court were given to the Rev. Mr. De Coetlogon, Chaplain to the Lord Mayor, for his Sermon preached hefore his Lord-fhip, the Judges, Aldermen, Serjeants at Law, a?nd City Officers, on Sunday la'ft, being the firft Sunday in Eafter Term, at the Cathedral Church of'St. Paul; and he' was defired to print the fame, and (end a copy to every Member of the Court, ; Alexander Rofs and Charles Hyndes were admitted ahd fwom Setjeants at Mace of the Wood-flreet Comptef, m the room, of William Brent afod'Gcorge Tsleedharn, deceafed. *'. ; The InquefLbf the parifh of St. Sepulchre, in the Ward "of Fafringdon Without, made a pre-" fentment of feveral ruinous houfes in Cloth Falri and the City Solicitor" was ordered to put fo much Of the Adl.of Parliament of 14th of George III. into execution, as related to the fame, in order t6 their being fpe?dily taken down by the owners. 4 Exfma �/* a Letter fftomSttxkholbi, April 6 iftuch int the, dark afactaf it 0 yeftetday* Wheii we reaervad- tBt wbff agf*eWe ihtelligjenee of Ms living fafely arriye r May 19, so, and June 8, at three, at Garter's Tavern, in the Hign-itneet, Birmingham.
