Yefterday evening, after the Council broke up at the Secretary of State's Office, the Duke of Leeds difpatched a meffenger with letters to Lord R.

Yefierday morning an exprefs arrived at Carle-ton-H.oiife from Newmarket, which gave an account of the celebrated match between the Prince of Wales's Traveller and Earl Grofvehor's Meteor being decided on Monday in favour of the Prince by aLout nine Yards. This was the moft capital matuh that has been run cn the turf for feweral years, it being faid that near 200,000). were betted on it. Monf. Bailli, the celebrated Mayor of Paris, is not merely a patriot and politician. He is alio a man of learning and fcience, and has written an eifay on a very dark fubjeel, the Antiquity of the* Indian Aftronomy. He has however lately laid thefe /peculations on the (helf, in order to aiBil his countrymen in founding the bafis of their con-ftitution and liberties. A book being lately pre-fented to him on the fame fubjeel with hu eflay, requefting his opinion, he replied, that he was at prefent too much engaged with the Revolutions of this world, to attend to rhofe of the liars.

The thanks of the clob were unanimouily voted to the Treafurer, Secretary, and Deputy Steward; and they were fequeited to continue in their feveral offices for the year en-fuing. The Club was very numerouily attended; and after th& ufual conftitutional toails, the members prefent exprefled their concurrent refoiution of fupporting individually the caufe which unites them at the enfuing general election. The William, Bruce, from Nova-Scotia to Leghorn, is put into Lifbon in great diftrefs, after throwing part of the cargo overboard, and being at fea four months, three of whiciv without a mall. The Carolus, Bruhns, from St. Ube's to Stockholm, is put into Cork with Ibfs of rudder and other damage. A Mr. D--brought his wife before the Magistrates for aflaulting and beating him. Mr. D-- gave an account .of the laft affault fhe had committed on him (for to enumerate every one, would have taken up the Magillrate's time, perhaps, till now) It was with a hearth brodm, which the lady thought proper to break over her hufband's head. He declared out of 15 years that-"j he had been married to her, he had not had three days quiet, owing to her turbulent difpofition, which had reduced him from a ftete of independence to poverty. She was committed to Tdthill-fields Bridewell until fhe finds bail fgf her appearance at the next feflions. On Monday night, about ten o'clock, as the fervant of Capt. Paiba was coming along Alder-manbury, fhe was accofted by a man of genteel appearance, who, before he had walked many yards with her, Slabbed her twice in the arm with a fharp pointed inflrriment, on which the girl cried out, which occasioned the villain to ran away; but finding no peifon come u> kttfffc. fiftance, he again came up to her, but fhe luckily got into a houfe before he had another oppoftq-| mty cf effecting his diabolical purpofe. terer; to furrender May 8, 18, and June 15, at eleven, at Guildhall, London.
