Yefterday a Court of Common Council was held at Guildhall, at which the Lord-Mayor, Recorder, 13 Aldermen, the two Sheriffs, and a great number of Commoners were prefent. The proceedings of the laft Court were read. MrvDepury Birch made fome remarks on a cno-. tion he had in his lund, refpecling the privilege ! of this Court in appointing a Serjeant at Arms j for'this City ;,pbferving that his Majefty had-recently appointed a Serjeant at Arms to attend on the LordjM'ayor of London, and he was of opinion the appointment was in this Court, but had by fome means efcaped them. He concluded by moving, " That it be referred to the Committee for General Purpofes forthwith to examine into the nature and duties of the office of Serjeant at Arms to the City of London, what his. emoluments are, and for what purpofes and by whom they are paid : by what means fo confiderable an appendage to the dignity of this great City has been neglected, and the origin of the cuftom of the Common Cryer of this.

The Dean had dined at a Gentleman's in Park-lane, from whence he . was returning when this violence was committed.
