Virginia., Maryland, New Jerfey, and New York", are alfo afleep, having hitherto contented themfelves with fending detachments of militia to the frontiers; the la't province fuppyrts 200 men there. The Merchants on our fide have drained us well of fpecie ; for, aj good authority, within this year, rpo,ooo hard dolUre 'have been exported from Philadelphia to Great Britain." 'i'tiey write from Amilerdam, that one of their Levant (hips had been plundered of a great many effects by two cruizQrg of Tripoli, near the iiland of Scio in the Archipelago. At the General Court held at- the Bank the 25th of January, the following motion was made, and the lame was fciH*niinouf|y confirmed in the General Co|ir.f held yelterday at their houie in Threadneedle-ftreet, viz. ' That the Thanks of this General Court ' be given to the Governor, Deputy-Gover-',nor, and Court of Dire&ors, for their Iteady, ' prudent, and judicious conduct, whereby * the,general credit of Europe, and particu- * Jar]/ that of this nation and city, has been * fo powerfully iupjorted, and the true intc-' relt of this Corporation fo efteutially re- * garded.' Which motion has met with general approbation ; it being Die fenfe of the moai'eu and commercial perions of this city, who are fully convinced that thole Gentlemen highly dc-ferve the compliment paid them. A large opening for a coach way, to be made from Cornlull tq the Bank, is under ' consideration. We hear that the unfubferibed Navy and Victualing Bills are .ordered to be paid off. ' On Friday lail two notorious villains, fup-poied to have- committed divers - robbenes near Enfield-Chace, were committed to Chelmsford gaol, by John Conyers, of Coppice-hall, near lipping, Efq; for prefenting a fowlingr-piece and roboing a man of his n:c-ih'v : one of them pleaded in his defence uiat the gun was not charged. On Tuefday kit the principal ager.t in the moll colily houfe of lewdneis in bohon-row, St. George's, Hanover-lquare, was apprehended and brought before francis Will on, and Henry Lamb, iifqrs. Sitting J ultice. at the Rotation Office'in Litchlield-.treet, 2nd admitted to bail; 'and the next day the MillrcCs or" the faid houfe was alio r.rprchended, and rind George "'our.d to anlwer at To /^Editor ^/"Lloyd'sEvening Post. Sir, AS Frugality is become the modern topic, I earneftly wifh to fee it practifed more than talked of, particularly in ourpu&lic offices. The nation has been at a vaft expence the late war in equipping our Navy, and I am thoroughly perfuaded prodigious fums might have been faved if the accounts of the Navy had been ftrictly examined, m order to deleft and prevent frauds; which .-have been ex-ceflively frequent, and have paiTed mameful-ly unnoticed by thofe whofe province it was to infpeft them. Abufes of this flagrant nature will always continue till there is fome-what more regulation, which, in my-opinion, is much Wanted, and fevereexamples made of the guilty,, who pafs unheeded: a molt flagrant and common abufe is, tranfmitting falle muite.fcbooks, falfe-expences of flares, provifions, &c. which are fo frequent, and become io common, that it's reckoned a great qualification in an officer to know how to knock up an expence of this kind ; and if an honelr man happens to ?11 a place who detects perjury, and will not comply with feveral ua-fawfal demands, it is ten to one but the molt trivial fault is noticed, advantage taken of it, and broke. I have feen a Qaptain confine his Boatfwain for refufingto convert his ftoresto his pleafure, in making fine floor^cfoths, hur-ricanehoufesj umbrellos, fitting andfrihing-nets, blow away a topfail in a calm, 8tc+ threaten and fwear at his Carpenter for not being-a Carver, and making him fine chairs, card and dreiiing tables* andfuch trifles, and all out of his Alajejly'sflares; which is too often " complied with,-, for fear of giving, offence to ' the mighty Baihaw. Arjhse example ! by thofe mal-practices mips are often without necefla-ries when in need: and how fliock'ing is it that an officer will perjure himfelf by fwear-ing to the truth of the expence tranfmitted. I have known an inftancsofa Mailer daring to refule figning a falfe account^ and the next week fufpended for fome trifle; luch is'the defpotic power placed often in bad hands, and too, too often exercifed. Thefe proceedings arc become quite common, and pafs unnoticed When there is a friendly Agent in"the ofiicc, in whole.power it is to nuke wrong feem right. Thus the nation has been defrauded of vaft fums, and I think it moftinfamous that it mould paf. fo long 'unnoticed; a poor man's R is found infinitely more difficult to be removed than." thofe accounts to pafs: but I hope fome wife ftep will be taken by thofe in power, who may ealily ftop it.
