To be continued every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. From WEDNESDAY, March 8, to FRIDAY, March io, 1758. Berlin, Feb. 23. if^HE accounts which have =s| beenpubliihedoftheSwedes J^M having found means to get -My a g'reat quantity of proviiions Jg^ into Stralfund for the fub-liftence of the garrifon, are i^ftSfai^ entirely void of foundation; i'ss. for the port is ftillfo frozen up, th'at it is impoffible for any {hip to enter it; and on the land iide it is entirely blocked up by our troops, who have brought ,up agreat quantity of. heavy cannon and mortars to begin the fiege in form. All the reports likewife or lallies made by thegarrifon of Schweidnitz are equally without foundation. Stade, Feb. 21. We are forming here a body of light horl'e, of which M. de Schelter- is to have the command. Deferters from all countries csme in and enlift very faft; and they are pro-mi(ed, that if they uiflike the feryice at the e:id of four months, they ihall be entirely at liberty, and each man receive two crowns : fo that this new corps will be very foon complete.

'Thofe of them who refufe to go, will be conducted to Houfe of Correction,- to remain there the like number of years. Their friends make great interceffio'n for their liberty, but without fuccels, it bring determined they (hall undergo their (entence. � M-ntfellier, Feb. to. The (rates of Languedoc atfembled in this city, havejuft given their approbation to a nevvfowing'inftrumenf, invented by the Abbe Soumiile on the Sieur du Hamel's principles, which he has adapted to the kind of plbiirh uled in this country. M. ds Montferrier Syndic, General of the pi'-ovince, read a Memoir, fetting forth all the advantages of this invention to the Aflembly. It is contrived in i'uch a manner that the com fails into the furrow, one grain at a time, and ii immediately covered a fufficient and equal depth, by which means the feed is neither ex-poled to be picked up by birds, devoured by ants, nor left uncovered, as >t often happens in tiie common method of lowing. This inibru-ment is made at Villeneuve near Avignon, under the direction of the inventor. COUNTRY NEWS. Bath, March 6. The two deferters who murdered the woman (See Numb. 97.p. 209.) were o nMonday feparately exam ined at the Guildhall: they perfilted in what they had before declared, each charging the otberwith being guilty of the faci, and pleading his own innocence : they were committed tothe County Gaol, in order to rake their trials at the next Affizes, which wii; be at Taunton the 27th inft. On their way to the gaol they abufed each other, and wanted to fight. Canterbury, March 8.

PORT n E W S. Neivcajlk, March 4. Sunday night a fhip of Whitby, Capt. Skinner, ' burthen about 200 tons, failed from Shields for London with coals, but was'next morning taken in light of Hartlepool by a French privateer, and carried to fea ; next day the privateer came in with the land again, and on Tuefday night fell in with the Scots trade from London, and continued with them all night; in the morning, difcovering them to be under the convoy of a floop of war, made off, but was purfued, and we are in hopes ihe is taken. Other accounts fay, the privateer was out at fea, and by the llgnals from Whitby was pointed out to the convoy, who gave chace-on. Wednefday morning, leaving the trade to the care of an armed fhip in company. We fmce hear the privateer out-run the floop (Grampus) two feet for one ; ihe is laid to mount fourteen carriage guns, and goes well under a main-fail as large as that of a third rate fhip of war, yet has but one malt. Sunderland, March 4. This.morning early two privateers appeared oft" this place : they gave chace to feveral vefi'els, that were coming from 1 the fouthward for this port; but thefe luckily j efcaped, by tjetting into this harbour.   The 1 fame privateers chafed on Friday, with intent- to proceed for Dart- " mouth, but the wind coming to the fouthward, was obliged to anchor again, when a terrible gale of wind came on, Ihe parted her cables, all fo one fmall hawfer, which Ihe held by all yefterday ; the people left her and got off fafa in the boat, and laft night ftie went alhore, and is now all to pieces. The fojdiers and other poor inhabitants of the town are gathering "up the wreck, and by to-morrow there will fcarce be the leaft mark of her to be feen. Porlfmouih, March 7.

Great encomiums are given to the extraordinary military (kill of the Hereditary Prinee of Bruuivvick, who, tho' not twenty-five years of age, has given very uncommon proofs of his" Generalihip; and as he is pofieiTed.of ail other nullifications that can adorn a Prince, we may expect to lee him a fecond Hero of Pruffia.
