London Daily Post And General Advertiser (Newspaper) - December 7, 1743, London, Middlesex The London Daily Poft, and General Xdvertifer. NwMB lS*p "WEDNESDAY, December fy 1743. Deal, December, f. HIS Morning his Majesty's Sloop of War the Baltimore failed to the Weftward. - Remain his Majesty's Ship the Alderney, and the Urfdla Tender. Juft arrived Aoguftus Csefar, Hampton, from Leghorn. WindE.S.E. LONDON. M, de Gages remains at Fano, and the greateft Part of h's Troops are at Pelaro, where he continues fortifying liimfelf. Both Armies find great Difficulty to get Forage and Provisions, which probably will increafe on the Part of the 'Spaniards, when the two Ships get into the Adriatick, which Admiral Matthews has fent for that Purpofe; and which at the fame time will facilitate the Means of furnim-ing the Auftrian Army. Great Part of the Spaniards, that remained at Civita Cadellana, have joined the Army, fo that only i oo Horfe and 300 Foot remain in that Place, a-mongft which are above 100 Invalids. By all Accounts their Army is reprefented to be in a very bad Condition, ill cloath'd and paid. Florence, Nov. 26. On the 20th the Magiflrate of Health . 4iere received Notice, that the Republick of Venice had fufpended all free Commerce with Tufcany, in Confequence -of our Regency having lately re-eftablifhed the Commerc with the Ecclefiaftical State by Land. From Lombardy we do not learn this Week any News of Confequence. Prince Lobkowitz continues his Head Quarters at Rimini. 1 , Hague, Dec. 10, N.S. Letters from Bafle of the 28th paft, confirm the Report of the French having perfected on the 25th their Bridge from the Ifland to the Continent of Swabia; and that there were no lefs than three Thoufand Workmen employed in raifing a Head of a Bridge, and Retrenchments upon the Eaft Side of the Rhine} while the Works in the Ifland Wire alfo carrying on with the utmofl Diligence j and the fame Advices add, that by the Provi-fion the French had made of Carpenters, Timber, Cranes, -and various Sorts of' Utenfils, it looked as if their Defign was to fubftitnte, both between Hunninguen and the Ifland, and between the Ifland and the Continent of Germany, in the Place of their prefent Bridge of Boats, others built upon . Piles, which might be lefs liable to be incommoded by the Ice, which mull be expe&ed to defcead the Rhine this Winter. Thefe Letters make no mention of any Motions of Prince Waldeck's to interrupt their Undertakings. Leicefter-Houfe, Dec. 6, 1743. Her Royal Highnefs the Princefs of Wales will fee Company on Sunday and Monday next, the nth and 42th Infiant. We hear, Henry Fox, Efqj will be appointed one of the Lords of the Treafury. Yefterday the Election at Lewes in Suffex came on; the �Candidates we hear, were Sir John Shelley, Bart, and Sir Francis Poole, Bart. An Oppofition was expected from Thomas Sergiffon, Eftj; \ The Right Hon. the Lords of the Admiralty have given Notice, that a Convoy for the Mediterranean will fail from Spithead in about three Weeks. The Baltimore Sloop of War is failed direflly to the Coaft of Portugal, to protect the Trade, from the Spanifli Privateers. His Catholick Majefty has granted Permiffion to the Subjects of the States General to export Englifli Commodities (during the War) to the Spanifli Weft-Indies: But it is much doubted whether this Permiffion will be accepted, be-taufeitis evidently meant to cover the Infraction of the' Treaty of Utrecht, by the Powers granted to the French Company at St. Maloes; the Words of that Treaty being thefe-** That his moft Chriftian Majefty, and his Suc- ** ceflbrs, fliall not accept of any Advantages in Trade to " the Spanifli America, but what fliall at the fame Time " be granted to other Nations. Yefterday came Advice, that the Friendfliip, Redmond, j bound fromCork to Madeira, and the Leeward Wands, was' taken about 40 Leagues S.W. from Cape Finiflcre ; and that the Matter and Mate arrived at Falmouth the 1 ft Inflate, in the John and Elizabeth of Dartmouth, from Viana in Portugal. On Friday Night laft the Right Hon. William Conolly, Efq; Member of Parliament for Aldborough in Suffolk, arrived in Town from Ireland. > This Day Peter Fenoulhet, Efq; who is appointed Exon of his Majefty's Yeomen of the Guard, will be fworn into the faid Office. On Saturday laft was married at St. Paul's Mr. Guern-fey, Son of Mr. Guernfey of Houndfditch, to Mrs Charle-wood of Budge-row, an agreeable young Widow Lady, with a confiderable Fortune. On Monday Night died at her Lodgings in George's-fireet, York-Buildings, Mrs. Traner, a Lady of good Fortune. Yefterday Number 16,558 was drawn a Prize of 50001.' which we hear belongs to one Mr. Julian, a Merchant. And Number5i,}ii, 20,115,65,514, 15,534, 29,937, j 38,200, and 17,82c, drawn Prizes of 100 1. each. This Day the Seffions begins at the Old-Baily, when upwards of Twenty Prifoners will be Tried for Capital Offences. As it has been found by Experience, that the Examining, 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 tbofe who enquire for their Friends in the-Country, or themfelves, are defired to call after Three o'clock at LOWE and BERRY'S Office io Stationer's-Alley,Ludgate-flrce^who have taken all poffibla Care to prevent any Interruption to their Pofting with the greateft Certainty t and to prevent the Town being impofed on by People unknown with Counterfeit Tickets or Blanks, they will warrant all thofe bought of them to be Undrawn and good Tickets with their own Hands. Shares are fold and Chances in the fame Manner, with the greateft Security. No. 79,320 drawn a few Days ago a Prize of 20001. was, fold the fame Morning at their Office. The Ten Thoufand and Five Thoufand Pound Prizes, with feveral other valuable ones, were tranfafied 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 Purcbafer with as much Safety as if fold before the 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 always fettled at that Time for the Day, he will then examine Tickets and Shares, &c. and tranfaft all other Bufinefs relating to the Lottery. The molt ready Money may be had at any Time of the Day for Blanks and Prizes.__ ~ B AN K R U P TS. ' Richard Hope of Rood-Lane, London, Packer and Chapman.
