The Neptune, Trpad, and Adventure, Brook, both from New-England, are arriv'd off Dover. ' , . The Elisabeth, Mackey, from Cape Fare, is arriv'd in the River. -LONDON. On Wednefday laft there was the moft fplendid Court at St. James's that has been feen for fome Time paft, which confuted chiefiy:of Ladies, who went to take their Leave of her Royal Highnefi the Princefij Louifa, who is to depart in a few Days. On Wednefday laft the Aldborough Man. of War, Capt. Pitman, arrived at Spithead from Gibraltar; bat went foon after to the Mother-Bank, in order,tb" perform Quarantine. Yefterday came Advice, that- the Friend's Goodwill, Doleman, one of the Jamaica Fleet, was got into Ireland, bat in a very difabled Condition. The fame Day there was Advice, that the Crawley Pink, Naoghton, bound from Cheiler to Triefte, was taken by fiveSpanifh Privateers on the 5th of September, after a brave Refillance of Teven Hours, between Cape Spartel and Gibraltar ; and was carried into Tariffa. Yeflerday the Northumberland, faid to be thelargeft Seventy GunShip.in-the Navy, lately, rebuilt at Deptford, was launch'd in the Prefence of feveral Officers of the Navy, and many Perfons of Diffini&ioa; the Command of her is given to Capt. Watfon an experienced Officer. - By Letters from Ireland we have Advice, that they are very bufy in repairing all iKe Fortifications in' that Kingdom, for which Purpofe a greaFNulibBrof proper Ordnance were ordered fome Time ago.  The fame Letters, mention,> thaf;the Artillery which have been for" many Yeats ii tie Palatine-Square, in; the Barracks of Dublin, are^noj^irejnoYvI io&i,fjfa&rilboas in Phcsnix-Park, which w^hegun by the Earl Wharton, Father to the Jate Duke, J^flien'Lord-Lieutenant of that Kingdom in 1712, big left unfinifhed; the Palatines who were employed in it, being fent to America, by particular Order. - Yefterday it was. reported, that the Hofpital for Seamen at Rochester, was burnt doWn by Accident; but the Particulars were not menrion'd. s On Thurfday Morning the Shop of Mr. Levington, a Linnen-draper in King-ftreet, Covent-Garden, was broke open by fomc Villains, who carried off Goods to the Value of 301. On Thurfday laft in the Afternoon* a Back-Houfe in Great Wild-ftreet, in which two Families liv'd, of a fud-.den fell down ; but Providentially no Perfon was hurt, all the Inhabitants having been abroad for feveral Hours, except an old Woman, who had a few Minutes before ftept out, to bring in fomething {he wanted. We heat the Corpfe of Capt. Willoughby, who was found dead in his Bed on Thurfday Morning at his Lodgings in Abchurch-Lane, is to be carried down to Briftol cn Wednefday next, iri order to its being interr'd in that City with, his Anceftors. A few Days fince, a Man who had juft fallen into the Thames near Deptford, was taken up by fome People who were afhore, and faw the Accidentj this being immediately noifed about, a Surgeon from London who was on board one of the India-Snips, went directly on Shore and endea-vour'd to bleed him, but it was too late : However, being convinc'd that had the Man been pot into a Bed, or, had proper Care been taken of him, as foon as he was got out of the Water, his Life might have been fav'd, he upbraided the Lookers on, who were Inhabitants of the Place, for their Inhumanity j to which they returned for Anfwer, that each was loath to take him into their Houfe, well knowing if he died there, that the Officers of the Pa-rift would have oblig'd them to bury him at their own Ex-pence, without having the lead Article of the Fees abated; tho' the Circumftance fhould rather have occasioned their beirtg rewarded.~The too frequent Examples of this kinds and the many Bodies which have often been fecit floating fcr Days together, by Numbers of People, who have all had the above Apprehenfions, from a miftakeh Saving to the; feveral Parifhes, is a Scandal to the Perfons who give fuch Caufe of Fear; and is (as we apprehend) contrary to the Pra&ice of any other Part of England ; and indeed of the whole World. - Monday, next the. Quar;ej^Sefliqns wjll begin at HickiV Hallj on Tuerday at Guildhall; and on Wednefday next at the Old-Baily. SITTINGS appointed in London and Middlefex, -before the Right Hon. Sir John Willes, Knt.
