   London Daily Post And General Advertiser (Newspaper) - December 5, 1743, London, Middlesex                                The London Daily Poft, and General Advertifer. NwMB 28t* M O N D A Y,  December 5>   x743 Deal, Dtcember 3. HE Gofpore Man of War is failed for the River; the Dept-ford and Deptford Storefbip are under fail for the Weftwftrd; the Baltimore and Urfala remain. Wind S.E. LONDON. Since our laft arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. They write from Stockholm, that the Marquis de la Cbetardie, after flaying a few Days there, took (hipping 4oi Abo, from whence he intends to go by Land to Peterf-burgh. The Swedifh Troops on the 'Frontiers of Scania and Dalecarlia are gone into Winter Quarters, thofe of Denmark having done the fame: Neverthelefs, they go on with the Warlike Preparations as if they were to enter upon Aft ion forthwith ; great Magazines are erected in divers Places, and new Levies are making all over the Kingdom : On the other Side, Ruffia has again declared, that (he will fuccoar Sweden with all her Power, and in the mean time, has fent Word to the King and the Senate, that (he has 15doo Men ready to embark at Revel, if they pleafe to call for them. However, they hope that the Differences between Denmark and Sweden will be fpeedily adjufted in an amicable Manner, by Means of a Marriage between the Prince Royal of Sweden and the King of Denmark's eldeft Daughter ; that it is certain mod of the Members of the Senate are for this Match, and that the only thing that ob-flru&s the Concluhqa of it, is, Denmark's requiring the Prince Royal of Sweden to renounce his Claims to the d)utchy of Holftein. Letters from Nuremberg fay, that M. Salaberi, the French Minifter to the Circle of Franconia, has contracted with the Shoe-makers and Sadlers of that City for) furniming the French Cavalry with 10,000 Pair of Boots and as many Saddles. We hear from Oftend, that four Britifh Men of War and a Bomb-Ketch are actually cruizing off Dunkirk. Letters from the Hague fay, that the Deputies of the States General having lately complaiaed to Baron Sporcke, the Hanoverian Minifter, that two Companies of the Troops of that Electorate had taken up their Winter Quarters in the Country of Montferd on the Territories of the Repub-lick, the {aid Minifter has delivered a Memorial to their High Mightineffes, wherein he affures them, that the thing was done inadvertently and contrary to his Britannick Ma-jefty's Intentions, and that thefe two Companies have actually withdrawn from the Country of Montford. Letters from Madrid of the 19th of laft Month, N. S. advife, that the Genoefe Minifter' received a Courier a few Days before, with Orders to demand the Affiftance of that Court againft the Englifb, in regard to their fuppofed De-Cgn upon Final : Upon which he has been anfwered, that the King is very ready to grant his Affiftance to the Repub-lick of Genoa, provided (he agrees with his Catholick Majefty about the proper Meafures to be taken for doing the fiufinefs effectually, and entirely lays afide that Caution, which a Neutrality has hitherto made her obferve : The 'Genoefe Minifter waits for more ample Inftructions on this iaft Head, in order to conclude the Affair. We hear from Peter/burgh, that upon the ftrong Inftances made of late by the Pruffian Minifter there, in order to engage the Emprefs to accede to the Treaty of Breflau, her Imperial Majefty has at laft refolved upon it, with the Advice of the Senate, whom (he confulted about it: They add, that the Guaranty of Sileda is one of the Advantages fti-pulated in Favour of the King of Pruffia by the Emprefs's acceding to that Treaty. The lame News isconfirm'd by Letters from Berlin. We have Advice from Vienna, that the Queen of Hungary has refolved to affemble an Army of 35000 Men in Bohemia, which is to be commanded by Prince Wencef-laus of Licbterjftain; and that there is to be, befides, a Camp of about 10,000 Men on the Frontiers of Silefia. By the laft Advices from Nice we are informed, that Admiral Matthews has charg'd the Commandant of the five Britifh Men of War which he has fent to the Adriatick, to obey whatever Orders they may receive from Prinof Lob-kowitz ; and that a few Days after this, our Admiral left Nice and (leered for Genoa, in order to communicate to that Republick fome very important Difpatches which he had received from London. According to Advices from Francfort, they recruit very fuccefsfully, in divers Parts of the Empire for the Emperor's Troops; they are alfo buying up Horfes to remount the Imperial Cavalry, and the whole is to be compleated by the latter End of March next. The French Embaflador has received an Exprefs from his Court, with Difpatches which have given great Satisfaction to the Emperor, who immediately after difpatched a Courier to Berlin. We hear from Duffeldorp, that the Hanoverian Troops, that were to have been quartered in the Elector of Cologne's Territories, have received Orders to march forthwith into the Aullrian Netherlands. Our.Advices from the upper Rhine are, that the French go on brifkly with their new Works on the other-Side of the River, the Marquis de la Ravoye, who has the Direction of thofe Works, having taken his Meafures fo well that the Auflrians can no way difturb him. They write from Trano of the 20th of November, N.S. that Prince Lobkowiiz, who feemed to be making Difpofi-tions for attacking the Spaniards, has all on a fudden evacuated Rimini and the Places adjacent, as if he intended to put his Troops into Winter Quarters. His Majefty has appointed the Rev, Thomas Wilfon, Doctor in1 Divinity, to be a Prebendary of the Collegiate Church of St. Peter Weftnsinfter; void by the Promotion of the Right Rev. Father in God Dr. Matthew Hutton, late Prebendary thereof, to the Bjfhoprick of Bangor. Tis confirm'd from Dublin, that on the 25 th paftthe Jury, after a very (hort Confideration, brought in a Ver-dift for James Annefly, Efqj againft the Earl of Anglefea. The Trial lafted twelve Days. A Difpenfatioa laft Week pafs'd the Great Seal, to enable the Rev. Mr. Holcombe, A.M. Chaplain to the Lord Vifcount Torrington, to hold the Living of Na(h and Upton, in the County of Pembroke, and Diocefe of St. Davids, together with the Living of Pulcrohan, in the fame County and Diocefe. A few Days fince Robert Henley, Efq; Barrifter at Law, Brother to Anthony Henley, Efq; of the Grange in Hamp-(hire, was married to Mifs Huband, Daughter and Coheir of the late Sir John Huband of Ipfley in Warwickfliire, Bart, and Sifter to the Lady Delves, Relict of Sir Thomas Delves, Bart, a yery fine young Lady, with a confiderable Fortune. Laft Thurfday Mr. Stone, Marlhal to the Admiralty, by Virtue of a fpecial Warrant from the Right Hon. the Lords Commiffioners of that Board, carried John Millar from the Marfhalfea Prifon in Southwark, on board the Boyne Man of War at the Nore, where he will be tried on Wednefday next for Mutiny and Defertion. He was condemned once before, but obtained Mercy, and has deferted fince. Laft Thurfday Morning Thomas Hicks, Efq; and Mr. Stevens of Deptford, returning home from London, with two other Gentlemen, in a Coach, were attack'd near the Halfway Houfe by five Foot-Pads, who, with the greateft Imprecations threaded, if they did not immediately get out of the Coach, they would (hoot them through the Head ; whereupon a defperate Skirmifh tnfued ; but the Vil ains having Fire-Arms obliged the Gentlemen to deiift, and robb'd them of their Gold Watches, and about 30 Guineas in Money. Mr. Stevens wounded one of the Ruffians in the Cheek with his Sword. On Friday Night laft, between Eleven and Twelve o'Clock Mr. Perkins, an Attorney, Son of Mr. Perkins of Cow-lane, crofting Smithfield, in his return from his Father's Houfe, was knock'd down by three Street-Robbers, who took from him his Gold Watch, about 16 s. in Silver and his Hat. Before they had fearch'd all his Pockets, he recover'd himfelf, and ran into the Smithfield Punch-Houfe, to alarm the People ; but in the mean Time the Rogues got clear off with their Booty. They are fuppofed (by the Defcription given of them) to be the fame Villains who robb*d Mr. Toothacre, and almoft cut off his Finger, be-caufe they could not eafily get off his Ring, a few Nights ago at the Corner of Field-lane. � On Saturday Morning the Poft-man who carries the Inland Letters for Watling-ftreet Quarter was found drown'd at the Hermitage Bridge : He was remarkably chearful the Night before, and followed the Waits about One o'Clock in the Morning from an Alehoufe in Sherborne-lane. The fame Morning a melancholy Accident happened in St. John's-Court, Cow-lane, to the Daughter of Mr. God-dard, a Carver, a Girl about feven Years old, whom her Mother left in Bed 'till (he went to her Hufband in Long-lane ; in which Time the Child got up and went to the Fire to warm herfelf, but Handing too near, the Flames catch'd hold of her Cloatbs, and burnt her fo miferably that fhe died in a few Minutes. Yefterday in the Afternoon Samuel Mofes, Aaron Seleir, and Michael Jude, (three Jews) were brought by a Habeas Corpus from Ipfwich is Suffolk, they being charged on Oath, with breaking and entering the Dwelling Houfe of Mr. Young, a Goldfmith in Bloomfbury, and ftealing a Silver Taikard, feveral Silver and Gold Snuff-Boxes, Diamond Rings, Jewels, Medals, &c. to a confiderable Value. Thefe are the three Rogues who have fo long infilled the Counties of Eflex and Suffolk, and againlt whom many Robberies have been (worn. They will be try'd at the Seffions at the Old Baily, which begins on Wednefday. On Saturday laft died, at his Houfe in Old Bond-ftreer, Mr. Hyde, efteem'd one of the moft confiderable Men in England for furniming the Nobility and Gentry with Travelling Coaches. He died in the 80th Year of his Age, and has left a very confiderable Fortune behind him, which he acquir'd with Reputation. The fame Day died, at his Lodgings, near Hide Park Corner, William Norris, Efq; a Gentleman of confiderable Fortune in Ireland. Ob Saturday laft Sufannah Hughes was committed to Newgate, by Col. De Veil, for felonioufly and privately picking the Pocket of Mr. William Harrifon of a Green Purfe, containing three Guineas and two Ducats. On Saturday Number 57,324 was drawn a Prize of 5001. and 43�409� 3s�6o6, 19,186, 77,034, 19,236, 1,979, 8,860, 16,537 15,513 of 100 1. each. The prefent State of the Lottery in the Wheel one Prize of 10,000 1. three of 50001. all the 3000I. three of 20001. twelve of 10001. feventeeh of 500 1. and more than a Proportion of too, 50, &c. yet the moderate Price of Tickets enables Meff. LOWE and BERRY to fell their Shares on the cheapeft Terms, as well as Chances; the Purchafer is fure of not being impofed on by buying bad Tickets, at their Office in Stationer's Alley, Ludgate-Street, as they warrant them goad and undrawn with their own Hands. They will not examine during the Hours of Drawing, and their Office being retired from the Noife of the Publick Streets therefore their Numerical Book is much efteemed for its Correctnefs.--They fold the greateft Prize, that has been bought at any Office this Lottery about three Hours before it was drawn. The Ten Thoufand and Five Thoufand Pound Prizes, with feveral other valuable ones, were tranfacted at Mr. WILSON's, the State-Lottery-Office, Charing-Crofs. He will continue during the whole Courfe of drawing this prefent State-Lottery to difpofe of the whole Tickets, and Chances of whole Tickets, as well as the Shares of Chances, &c. warranted to the Purchafer with as much Safety as if fold before tbe-Lottery began drawing, and at the very loweft Prices. His Time of difpofing of them is every Morning before Nine, and Evening after Four o'Clock, it being highly precarious and imprudent to purchafe either during the Hours of Drawing. As his Books are alway fettled at that Time for the Day, he will then examine Tickets and Shares, &c. and tranfact all other Bufinefs relating to the Lottery. The moft ready Money may be had at any Time of the Day for Blank* and Prizes. BANKRUPTS. John Francis Michel, of New Broad-ftreet Buildings Merchant.
