London Evening Post (Newspaper) - April 18, 1765, London, Middlesex From THURSDAY April i8, to SATURDAY April 20 *765 [Price T\vo-pence Half-penny To the PRINTER. SIR, fc HERE are now many thoufands of the poor pe-rifhing for want of necellaries and work. The caufe of the firft calamity is owing to the very exorbitant price of provifi-ons, which no doubt arifes from our excef-five exports, which have made a famine a-mong the poor ; and I can aver, upon my own certain knowledge, that immediately after the exportation of ioc,cooJ. worth of provifions fent by England to gratefal Portugal after the earthquake at Lifbon, that the venders of provifions here then advanced them z> I. ?ol and 55 I. per cent, and in London 1 ftnd they have been advanced50 1. and 601. percent The firft complaint I apprehend might be greatly alleviated, or entirely removed, in time of plenty, if the exportation of provifions was prohibited on the fubfequent terms, viz. When cheefe, beef and poik, exceeded twopence halfpenny per pound, or twenty-three (hillings per cwt. bacon three-pence halfpenny per pound by the fide or flitch, butter four-pence halfpenny per poumi, wheat when it was more than five fhillings perbufhel, taking off the bounty on exportation. - . r One grand ftep towards the reviving of commerce, &c; would be, if the King would* be gracioufly pleafed to caufe the Board of Trade to be ele&ed from the moft eminent Merchants and Tradefmen, who are capable of forming' fchemes for the effectual reftoring trade, &c of which number only the Board of Trade in Holland is The Swan, Leifley, from Newcaftle to Hamburgh, is loft going into the Elbe ; the people faved. Letters from Qottingen, of the 6th inft. pofltively aflerr, that Do&or Klarich, belonging to the Univerfiiy there, had actually cured upwards of $4 perfons of ihe tooth-ach by the application of a loadftone. He places the patients with their faces towards the north, and-touching* the teeth with a magnet, it procures them eafe in three or four minutes. Wednefday morning a duel was fought m Hyde-park, between the hours of fix and feven, by a Lieutenant of a man of war and a young gentleman belonging to the Jaw. After firing two rounds, and having drawn their fwords, the report of the piilols brought forae people up, by which they were prevented going any further, though not without the Lieutenant receiving a wound in his breaft.. They afterwards, to outward appearance, parted very well reconciled, and really feeined fenfible of their error.
