   Lloyd's Evening Post (Newspaper) - January 30, 1764, London, Middlesex                                S EVENING POST. Vol. XIV.]   From MONDAY, January 30, to WEDNESDAY, February i, 1764.    [Numb. 1023. TUESDAY, jAKUAiy 31. C O UNTRY   NEW Peterborough, January 20. 'HE bank near Spalding is broke, whereby great part of the adjacent country is drowned. Spalding.church 1 15 A00^ 5 feveral of the Si T5^ _ Jii^, pillars are funk near two feet; and it is thought the church will fall: feveral graves are wafhed open, and the bodies caufe a ilench hardly to be borne ; the north bank of our river is broke in" feveral places, whereby many thoiifand �acres are drowned. We fuppofe that all, or moil of the people of Great Bedford Level'are driven from their habitations; a great deal of cattle has been removed through this place to feek for keeping; and many have been fold here and at other places, by au&ion, for what they could get. Extraci of a /eft er from Ilfrawnhe, Jan. 27. " The weather has been for thefe two months mdre tempestuous than the oldeft man here can remember. I have been an inhabitant in and near this place almoil fixty years,, but cannot recollect any gales of wind to have been fo great and variable as lately. Not lefs than thirty fail have been loft, and every man .periihed, on this coail, and four more have ifhared the fame fate on the Welch more. OuJ-boats are daily towing in fomething or other in diflretV, and yeilerday, when the weather cleared up, one of them fortunately fell in with his Majelly's floop of war the Ranger, who four days before had loft, off'Cape Corn-' .wall, her foremall, bqwiprit, main-top-malt, and one man, and was otherwise in fuch di-itrefs, that nothing but the, wonderful interposition of Providence could have faved either fhip or lives." Harwich, January 27. Yefterday afternoon an evprefs was difpatched from hence, to the Hereditary Prince.of Brunfwick and his Princefs ac Witham, with an account of three-.yuchts having arrived in this harbour about noon. His Serene Highnefs and the Princefs, accompanied by the Marquis of Gianby, Colonels Boyd, Keith, &c. M. de �eronce,/'and a great many other perfons of diiUnclionj came hiiher about thret? o'clock this afternoon, and afterwards dined at Griffith Pavies's, Efq; where an elegant dinner was provided. Tiie yachts are ordered to be in readinefs, but as the wind blows hard they cannot fail till to-morrow. The body corporate waited on their HighnefTes with their compliments of congratulation, and the town will be Illuminated' this evening. ~   LTD' N D  O  N. " The Prince and Princefs of Biunfwick went  his Serene Highnefs the Hereditary Prince of Brunfwick, in every place where he relied, till his embarkation at Harwich on Sunday laft, was fo affable and noble, that it has gained him the elteem of all ranks and degrees of people. One- of the moil affecting fcenes at the departure of our amiable Princefs Augulla, we- are told, was as follows : When her Highnefs, who had kept up her Ipirits furprizingly, was on the point of taking'coach, in going through the haD. ihe. found all her fervants drawn up in a row,, to take their la'ft farewel of an indulgent and moll dearly beloved mi-flrefs. The; light of them inftandy melted her into tears, and clapping her handkerchief before her eyos, Ihe haftened to her carriage, unable to exprefs the emotions Ihe felt ineany other manner. It is faid the Hereditary Prince of Brunfwick will be declared Generalifiimo of the Hanoverian troops. The Duke of Brunfwick has rnade a considerable reduction in his troops. We learri, that the revenue of the reigning. Duke of .Brunfwick, father to the excellent Prince who fo lately renewed the alliance between his illuftrious Hpufe and the. Royal Family of Great Britain, is equal to that of any other German Prince, and fuperior to moft, amounting to the fum of iocoI. lterling per diem. We hear that a noble Duke made a prefent of fome fine hunting horfes, and a pack of hounds, to his Highneii, the Prince of Brunfwick ; but as the weather was fo very ltormy and ternpeftuous, it was not thought proper to embark them till the fea was become more calm. The River Thames rofe again on Saturday and on Sunday night, that it is very dangerous travelling weihvard, and the navigation of the River has been in a manner ftopt for this month pall; for tho' the River Thames has been known to be as high as now 16 years, yet the land waters and lprings were never known fo high in the memory of man, occa-fioned by the continued heavy rains. Alrfloft all the cellars about Kingflon, and further weihvard, are full of water. By the late high winds the fine copper roof of the houfe at honthill, in Wiltshire, belonging to William Beckford, Efq; was fo rent and blown off, that it mull be entirely renewed, the expence of which will amount to fix or fever) thoufand pounds. Friday lail, by order of the Society for the encouragement of Arts, &.C. the firft premium of-twenty guinea^ was given to Lewis Pingo, for the bell engraving, on cornelian, of a Venus, from one of the fbstucs in the Duke of Richmond's gallery. Aifo a premium of fifteen guineas to John Watts, for the belt engraving, in wood, after the manner of Albert Durer. And a premium of t-.-n guineas to James Deacon, for the fecend beft engraving in wood. The following is an account of the .melancholy accident which happened at the'Bull atKingilon in Surry: A Serjeant of Elliot's light Korfe having courted the maid there, Ihe con-fented to have him; upon which a- licence was taken ouf, the ring bought, and, the-wedding to have been on Sunday ; but on Bine ^itrereuce between,them, the maid burnt the licence, and would not confent t�' it; on which he came into the kitchen on Sunday morning, and fired a pillol at her, and the ball hitting againft her ftays behind, made only a' fcratch or her fide ; on which. Ihe flung her apron over her head, and run towards the lire, crying out, " Lord, don't . ihootrme.;" when he difcharged another piftofr at her, which went into her back ber tween her flays; and it is thought Ihe cannot recover. There were feveral people in the kitchen when this was done. Hewas immediately apprehended, and committed by the Bailiffs of Kingflon to the New Gaol in; Southwark.___  To  be  SOL D, For Ready Mo/ey, at Mr. TROUGHTON's^ WfaeMerdnutyin Brook Street, near David Street, GrofvenorSquarey g.
