   General Evening Post (Newspaper) - October 21, 1790, London, Middlesex                                Price Four Pence. From THURSDAY, _---_-1- Oct. 2i,'  to  SATURDAY,  Oct. 2.3,   1790. 89O3 FRIDAY, Oct. 22. Yeflerday arrived the Maik'Jtgm France. Vienna, Oct. 2. HE day before yeflerday a courier was difpatched from the Council of War to the Prince de Saxe Cobjottrg, with in&ruc-tions relative to the dif-pofitions to be taken by o�r troops, by virtue of the truce, without injuring the rights of the Ruifians, who have conquered Wall.tchia in concert with us. The Gazette of our Court informs us, that the ceffation of Jioililities previously agreed on betweea the Prince de Cobourg and the Grand Vizir has b:en formally confirmed by the Porte, at the in-Jiance of the latter, and converted into a truce, which was pubiifhed on the 16111 of September at t .e camp near Buchareft. It is fince faid that our t oops are to go. back to their quarters, and that part are on their return to Tranfy lvjania. The 'heal quarters at prefent are at Rutfchuk, from which pi ice two Turkifh Plenipotentiaries arrived on the 19'h of September at Buchareil. The regiments now at Gibraltar are under orders to go to the Weft-Indies. An order is made for adding ten men to each troop of horfe, light and heavy. We have two meilengers now at Madrid, Dreffen and Shaw ; the firlt of whom is expected in England before the 4th of November ; nor can we poffibly have any intimation, on the great queftion of peace and war, before that time. Yefterday intimation was given on the Parade at St. James's, that the King had iignified his royal pleafure that he would review the three battalions of guards ordered for foreign fervice,. on Wednefday morning next, in Hyde-Park, previous to their departure.

He called Dr. Reynolds to prove that the ftate of the defendant's health was fuch at that time, that it would have been extremely dangerous for hiia to have ierved the office1; and Mr. Pardoe's apohecary proved that Mr. Pardoe had been delirious with a fever, and Pruffii has certainly not  played the *-game> | tt^nowledged the danger his life would_ have fcharv.ber) ;      i.iniis of lieu, Bevo!... .

Yeflerday, previous to the commencement of the Drawing-room at St. James's, Lord Vifcount Wentworth W2s fuorn as one of the Lords of his Maje/ty's Bedchamber, in the room of the late Earl erf Oxford ; his Lordfhip afterwards attended the Drawing - room, when he had the honour of kifTing the King's and Queen's hands on his appointment. Yerterday, after the Drawing-room broke up, the Duke of Leeds and his Excellency the Spa-nifh Ambaffador had a private interview with the King at St. James's. When freedom was lefs underftood in France than it is at prelent,' two peafants were talking of the Englifh Conftitution ; liberty, faid one of them, is a very bad thing, for the Englifh often fhoct theaifclves, to^/ rid of it. which was at one time in his hand, with the ad-drefs which was to have been expected from the Baron de Hertfberg. He made peace between Leopold and the Porte-He agreed to alfift him in the recovery of Brabant-He fuffered him to crufh the rifing infurrcftion in Hungary-He permitted him to be quietly crowned Emperor-He fubmitted to his influence in fecuring the throne of 4 Poland to the Eledlor of Salony-He was tricked out of thp alliance of Sweden--He loft the proi-peft of gaining Dantzick and Thome-and now he is told if he perfifts in dictating imperiomly to Ruffia, he is to be oppofed by the power that he ) faved from ruin. Extraft of a Lett-r from Portfinoutb, Oft. 20. " Arrived the Naifau, of 64 guns, Capt. Sutherland, from Plymouth. " This day the Conflagration firefhip was directed to be fitted for commiflion, as an additional hofpkal-lhip, and the forty-four to be furnifhed with a fiat-bottomed boat each. " This morning the Gladiator, of 4.4. guns, was corrimilfioned for a convalefccnt fhip. " Orders are received 'or getiing ready immediately (without painting) all the 44. gun ihips, to be armed en futc. " The Flirt floop of war is come into harbour to be paid off. " Thii morning embarked for Ireland, on the recruiting fervice, a Captain and three Lieutenants, with Serjeants, Corporals, &c. of the Mail,;,." - f a Letter from Plymouth,  OEl. 19. " Sailed the following ihips of war, viz. Cul-loden 74, Orion 74, Caftor 37., Syren 32, Dh|ih!,e 20, Ferret 12; the line of battle fhips for c-pirh.-ad, and the others on a cruize in the Channel." A Court of Common-Council was held yeflerday at Guildhall, prefent the Lord-Mayor, Recorder, 11 Aldermen, Sheriffs, and a number of Commoners. The motion for removing the cenfure pafT&don a member far puU!tilling a letter reflecting on the Ch.':mi�. rl.i'.n for not bringing his accounts before the Cyj/t, and animadverting cn a motion for that purpofe made by him, being negatived, en-gro'led the ptiucipal part of the attention of the Court. Mr. C-iiffiihs, the mover of the qucftion, entered into a defence of the member, and was followed by Mr. Dornford. Several gentle.nen obferved, that taking off the cenfure would be placing it on the Court; and as the diftance from the palling of the cenfure to the prefent time was fuch that many who were then members of the Court were not lb at prefer.t, it would no: be juiiiriable. Some were, for the motion being withdrawn, and others for the previous quellion, which latter being adopted, the j queftion for refcinding was loft. - A petition from the Ccmmon-Cryer, praying leave to act by Deputy, on account of his age, was read and unanimoufly agreed to ; the perfon to be approved by the Lord-Mayor. A letter from the Marine Society was read, : and, after a few words from Mr. Alderman Wat-fon, a vote for 500I. palled unanimoufly. A number of petitions and reports for renewal of leafes were read and ordered. Mr. Dornford and Mr. Dixon feverally gave notice of motions intended to be brought forward at the next Court. On the motion of Mr. Deputy Leekey, Mr. John Holmes was appointed to adt as fecond clerk to the Court of Requells till the vacancy was filled, the Deputy making many pertinent remarks why the Cc-urt ought not to fill the vacancy till a report fhould come from the General Turpofe Committee, who were at this time enquiring into the conduct of fome of the officers. The act for raifmg money for the fupport of the nightly watch was read, and paffed. Thurfday came on to be tried in the Sheriffs' Court, Guildhall, a cnufe of importance to opulent Citizens, wherein John Wilkes, Efq; as Chamberlain (in behalf of the City of London), was plaintiff, and John Pardoe, Efq; defendant. The action was brought to recover the .fum of 6ocl. being the penalty which is ordained by a bye-law. of the Court of Common Council to be paid for declining to ferve the office of Sheriff of London, to which office the defendant had been in the year 1783 elected, but refufed to ferve, on the ground of hisT>eing incapacitated. Mr. Sylvciler, the Counfel for the City, opened the caufe, by ftating the ability of Mr. Pardoe to ferve this office ; to prove which he called a Clerk at the India-hcufe, who fwore that Mr. Pardoe been in, had he ferved the office, and been in the j ciuj-c w6%^Gent!eman, deccafed, are re-qusftcd to pay.tkeir refpefisVis Debts, either to Mrs. Moore, Mr. Henry Ward, of Ci^le-Bromwich, or to Mr. Owen, Attorney, of Ather/fon^. And all Perfons .who have any Demands on the Efb.te of t':e fa'd Mr. Moore, are dufired to fend an-Account thereof to'Mrs. ?�loore, Mr. Hciry Ward, or Mr. Owen, in ordor t.) thor being Jifchargfd. [2436 GOSPORT, HAMPSHIRE. To ba SOLD, AComplcat BREWERY and DISTILLERY, with aNumbcr of well-filu-tted Public-Houfcs attached, where n very advv.nt.igeous Trade has been carried on tOT many Years.  . " Aiiy reafonable Part of the Purch.ifc-Moijcy may reaiain. If m>re agreeable, the Brewery and Diftihery may be pur-- fituatiun Mr. Garrow defcribed. Mr. Pardoe wan allowed to be 79 years of age, and almoft childifh. Mr. Long, one of the Judges of the Sheriffs' Courts fiimmed up the evidence, which he britliy repeated, and told the Jury the only queftion for their decifion was, whether Mr. Pardoe was, at the time he was chofen, a fit and able perfon to ferve the office of Sheriff of London and Middlefex. The Jury, who were fpecial, and all Non Freemen, were perions of jgreat refpectability in the City, among whom we noticed Mr. Raikes, a^nd feveral others of equal, repute, after a few minutes converfation gave a verdicj for the defendant. Mr. Serjeant Adair, 'long fince, advifed the City to drop all proceeding againft Mr. Pardee, prudently fearing the event of a trial. A treaty of marriage is faid to be on the tapis between Capt, Parker of the Guards, and the ami.-ble Mifs Dafhwood, who is po(Te{fed of a fortune of 6o,oool. Captain Parker is among thefc ordered for foreign fervice, but has obtained his Majeily's pcrrnifiion to fell out. The reprefcntaiian of Animal Magnetifm, at Covent-Garden, produced effects   more  tragic than comic.   A gentleman went into fits, and four ladies in confequence fainted.   The alarm \ of fire was fpread, and to complete the diilrefs of I the fcene, the performer all the while was obliged j to lye dead cn the flage, notwhhllanding the magnetical influence which fuch a difturbance operating on his ears might be fuppoied to have had in reltoring to him the ule of his limbs and* eyes. Of Edwin, all hopes are given over-his conftitution is entirely broken-and with it n"n fpirits are in the loweft ftate cf depreffion. The town owes fomething to him, many a harmlefs laugh, and. many a broad grin.-Whether the writing for the ftage has profited, is another queftion. A pe.'fun who unites the bufinefs of an eating-houfe w;th t >a'. of procuring recruits for the Eaft-India Compa-iy, after praifing the qualities of his beef and mutton, Sec. in a printed addrefs to the public, adds, by way of note to the rea-fonablenefs of his terms, " that perfons who have no money may be put into a proper train of eating and drinking, provided they have a good appetite, a fpirit above flavery, and are five feet four inches lugh." We hear fo determined are the Stage Coachmen to defeat Mr. Garr.on's Bill for leifening the number of outfide palfeagers, that they have, upon fome roads, placed the body of another coach behind, and called it a Back-Gammon. It is an odd afibciation of na i:<:s and things, that Mr. Golightly fhould be killed by a fall from his horfe ; but i: is a better one, that lail week Mr. Sharp, of Worcefter, was married to Mfs Blunt ! Monday night Mr. Wilfon, of Briftol, had his pocket picked at Covent-Garden Theatre of eight guineas and fome Bank bills. The fame night, and in the fame place, Mr. Binford, of Oxford-llreet, had his pocket picked of his watch, ftals, Sic. Wednefday night a fire broke out in a ware-houfe in Sun-Tavern Fields, Shadwell, which confumed a great quantity of ropes, pitch, tar, and the whole building ; together with the dwel-ling-houfe, and moft of the furniture.
