Letters from Franckfon aflure us, that M. Klingraff, Minifter from his Pruflian Majeity, had lately a long Audience of the Emperor upon Matters of fuch Importance, that as foon as it was over he fet out in Perfon for Berlin, in order to make Report of what pafs'd therein to the King his Matter. They write from Paris, that the King of the Two Sicilies having demanded of his moll ChriitianMajelty Succours, to which he is entitled by Treaty, for the Preservation of his Dominions, after along Debate in Council, it was de-termin'd to grant them, no:wichltanding the warm Oppo-fition made thereto by fome Perfons of the higheft Rank, who aliened, that the Treafures of France were not able to fupport the Expences of German Subfidies, join'd to a War in Italy. Yefterday his Majefty went to the Houfe of Peer*, attended by his Grace the Duke of Richmond, and the Right Hon. the Earl of Dunmore, and opened the Seffions of Parliament with a raoft gracious Speech from the Throne; wherein he was pleas'd to acquaint them with the Neceffi-ty of Curbing the Ambitious Views of France, Supporting the Houfe of Anftria, Securing the Balance of Power in the Crown of Great Britain, &c.

Commander of a Philadelphia Privateer, had carried into r.hat Place, a Spanilh Regiiier Com.miflioned Ship, valued 3t above 30,000 1. S'erling ; upon the fame Cruize, he funk a Spariifh PHvateer of very confiderable Force, after a fmart Engagement. We hear, that his Majefty's Ship the Baltimore is ordered to fail direcllv, and take under Convoy all the Ships bound for Portugal. Mr. Eldridge, to whom the 10,000 1. Prize belong'd, wad Yefterday at Gui/d-hall, in order to give a Sum of Money to the Boys that drew the faid Ticket, as ufual. On Friday laft feveal Perfons were convicled at Fever-fham, before the JuiHces ot the Peace for the County of Kent, for retiiling Spirituous Liquors without Licence. On Wednefday latl James Williams was commheed to the New Goal in Somhwarlc, by Thomas Baynton, Efq; he being charged on the Oath of Elizabeth Ball, with aflault-ing her on the Highway, near the End of Kent-ftreet, Southwark, putting her in fear of her Life, and robbing her of feveral Things of Value. The fame Mo.-r.ing early, Singer and Whiting, (the two Felons fo often mentioned in the News Papers) who broke out of the New-Goal but were retaken, and fruftiated in a Defign to efcape a fecond Time, made a third Attempt to regain their Liberty, by fawing their Irons, and cutting the Chain which confin'd them to the Floor. In the Morning when the lower W^rds of the Goal were unlock'd, they had the Impudence to throw two Padlocks through the Bars of their Window, and to tell the Turnkey, he might broil them for his Breakfaft : They hid the Chains in a Cernej of the Cieling, and when the Keeper q;jeftioned them what they had done with them ; they told him, that the D-1 bad affiled them in getting off their Irons, and had taken the Chain away for his Trouble. They were fearch'd, and feveral Implements found upon them, fcr forwarding their Efcape ; befides, feveral Anne's Guineas concealed in - the Cape of Singer's Coat. They confefs'd Yefterday Morning, .that they were the Perfons who (with one Hab-berley a Butcher, now in Maidltone Gaol) ab;ut five Weeks ago robb'd the.Colcheiler Stage.Coach beyond Stratford, and alio fome Gentlemen belonging to the General Poft-Gffic; ; and a great many other'Paffengers. They are both harden*d wicked Fellows, and declare they-have fold them-felves to the D-1. On Wednefday laft died at hei Houfe in Jockey Fields, Mrs. Northcot, in the 70th Ytar of her Age, a Widow Gentlewoman of a large Fortune, and much refpected by all that knew her. Yefterday a Fire broke out at a Houfe in Hemmings's Row, in St. Martin's Lane ; but by timely Afiiltance it was extinguilh'd without doing any farther D-image than bu.n-ing the Room where it began.

He continues to fell the whole Chances, and Shares of Chances, as ufual. As it has been found by Experience, that the Exanrr-.. ning, during the Hours of Drawing the Lottery, is fo great an Interruption as to hinder the Correclnefs that ought to be in a Numerical Book ; therefore thofe who enquire for their Friends in the Country, or themfelves, are defired u> call after Three o'Clock at LOWli and B&RRY's Office in Stationers-Alley, Ludgate-Ureet, who have taken all poffi-ble Care to prevent any Interruption to their Polling the Numbers, therefore they may be depended on vvitn the greateft Certainty ; and to prevent the Town being impofed on by People unknown with Counterfeit i ickets or Blames, they will warrant all thofe bought of them to be Undrawn and good Tickets with their own Hands.
