Yefterday morning the King took the diver Ifion of hunting with his harriers in Windfor Grea Park; and after moll excellent fport his Majefty returned at three O'clock to the Queen's Lodge to dinner. The King's Meifengfer in waking came-up yefterday morning with letters from his Majefty at WindforTLodge to the Lord, Chancellor and Mr. Pitt, which were immediately forwarded to them at their different country refidetlce?: On Thurfday morr.ing laft arrived at the Biftop's Pal ace i Glotfcefter, his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Gloucefter ; and on Friday morning his Rcyal Highnefs received the Mayor; Aldermen^ and Common-Council, Who waited upon him in their formalities, wheri he gracioufly accepted the freedom of the city, which- was alfo; by the Corporation; preferited to the Prince, his ion. On Saturday mornirig his Royal Highnefs the Duke of GJoiScefter, accompanied by the Bifhop, Lord H. Fitzgerald, Sir G. O. Paul, Bart, arid the Rev. Dr. Wale/by, Preceptor to Prince William, viiited the Infirmary arid the New Prifon. They were attended through fhe various compartments of this magnificent building by the Rev. Mr. Ferryman, whofe many curious inventions for fecuring the cells and wards they beheld with great fatisfaclion. They then proceeded to j^j-, Ferryman's mufeum of Britiih quidrupeds and 'feirt�3� where they were joined by the Duke of Beaufort ^nd the Marqnis of Worcefter, and which afforded them art entertainment equally pleafing and tinexpecW, at fo great a diftance from the Capital. The National Aflembly of France, retaining fomc little leaven of the national frivolity, have determined, in the midft of all their disturbances, that their Judgea (hall wear a round hat, turned up before, with a large black feather in it. The Elector Palatine has' granted leave for the pafiage of 24,000 Auftrians through his territories *r their march to the Pays Bas; a Letters from Rome &y,.'.� The reports whfch have been fpread relative to troubles in thia Capital, have been greatly exaggerated. All is at prefent very quiet, Caglioftro is watched with more circumfpettion than ever. The caufe of his confinement mull furely be of .moft ferious importance ; for there are eight iron gates to pafs before one can arrive at his dungeon, and they are guarded, night and day^by eight armed men. W Extra ft of a Letter from Calcutta, April 14. " The fyflem of neutrality adopted by Nizam Ally, during the late war, is at an end ; he muft now declare himfelf, and it requires no fuper-*-natural powers to pronounce with which of the two contending parties he will fide. " The lateft advices from Poonah are of the moft flattering nature; they not only bring the moft unequivocal affurances of the Paftrwah's friendly difpofition to the Britiih Government.etta-blifhed in India, but promifes of fuccour in the event of our Handing in need of it; and point out in which parts Tippoo was molt vulnerable. -Government has received affurances as flattering, and, we doubt not, as fincerej from the principal Jaghidars North of Poonah. ' The Nabob Vizier has alfo, upon this occa-fion, exprefled, in terms the moft deciiive and forcible, his kind difpofition and wiflies." Among Other evils with which the plan of if-fuing Aflignats to the enormous amount of loo,ooo,oool. fterling is pregnant, forgery is one. It would be utterly impoffible for human fagacity to watch over fuch a mats of paper, and prevent the artifices of the profligate. In this country a coinage of copper even cannot be made, under all the vigilance and difcipline of well-executed laws, without forgery. What then muft be the confequence of fuch an iffue of paper in the natural confequence of this forgery would be prefent relaxed ftate of authority in France. The general alarm, which would accelerate the depreciation which its own weight would begin. Stage wit has always an excellent efteft : if we ihould be fo foolifh as to take any interejl in the fictitious fcene which is reprefented before us, it reminds us of the delufion, and calls off our attention from the characters to the performers, Co as to deftroy the trifling pleafure, which we might feel from the Drama, confickred as a reprekntation of real manners. Mrs. Jordan's articles having expired laft fea-fon, are again renewed by the Proprietors of Drury-Lane, on the moft liberal terms ) fhe is to receive 30I. per week, and to have two benefits.     . A Court of Aldermen was fummoned to meet yefterday at Guildhall; but after waiting till near two o'clock the Lord Mayor was obliged to give up the idea of making a Court, there not being a fufficient number of Aldermfcn prefent; and feveral of thofe, after wailing a long time, withdrew. An order was inade yefterday to ralie the price of bread half an aflize, or a penny in a peck loaf, which will take place to-morrow; In confequence of the refolution of the Mafter and Brethren of the Trinity-Houfe of Newcaille, on the 15th of May, to prefent the freedom of that Corporation to his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Clarence, contained in a gold box ; the fame was immediately ordered, and was this week received from the artift: It is an elegant and highly finifhed piece of workmanfhip ; oh the top is the arms df the Trinity-Houfe, in enamel; the&lei are decorated with beautiful emblematic devices} on the under fide a crown and C. his Royal High-nefs's creft; and on the infide of the lid U enT graven, " The Freedom of the Corporation of the Trinity Houfe of Newcaftleiipbh Tyne, Jonathan Airey, Efq.

With the feid Machine, frqm Eight to Ten Acres of Land are commonly drilled in One Day, and with the Horfe-Hoe, from Eight tfc Ten Acres are effectually hoed in On� Day, willv One Man, a Boy, and One Horfe, at the trifling Ex-pence of Six-pence, or Eight-pence an Acre, each Procefs. For feme Time paft I have contented myfelf with observing, both in public and in .private, that by a proper Ufe of the Taid Drill and Horfe-Hoe, more than the Rfent, of Land m"t|ht be cleared* over and above the ufual Pro&ts, by Handrfowing. I now hold myfelf juftified .in af-ferting,-that fuch Profits have been a perfect Solution of its inner Rind, and is an abfolute fpecifie Cure for the Scurvy, in every Stagey Condition, and Degree of that Difeafe, and this with the moii perfect Innocence, for it cannot repel j. nor has it any of the dangerous Eftefts of-MineraJ Preparations, Mercury b~tng unknown in theComp'ofition. Whether the Scurvy be of the eruptive Kind, or latent in die Habit, this EtFence is always confift.?r.t'in its Operarion an i �Effe&s. Its firft Eft'ort is byinfenfible Perfpirationi thereby opening the obftnjfted Poresj and" giving ;Pafl':ige to'the o/-fending Humour ; and, where the Difo:der is virulent, Nature is further ailift^d by > more than ordiriiry Difcharg? tf Urine.
