The Scavengers of this city and in the out-parts, are loudly complained of for negleft of duty. The pains ufually taken to carry away the foil are hardly adeqaate to the valuesfof the manure. - Some of the capital ftreets are like Old Brentford at Chriftmas, while the Scavengers mind nothing but colle&ing their rates, and railing a fortune out of the unde-ferved contributions of their very indulgent parifhioners. The Sieur Camus, of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Paris, is admitted a Member of the Royal Society of London. They write from Kembly, in Wiltshire, that a tradefman of that place, having two apprentice boys, fome time ago took it into his head to tie them both in their beds, and caf-trate them; and a day or two afterwards, apprehending a mortification, the mailer cut the parts off clofe to their bodies, and applied plailters to heal the wounds; but it coming to the knowledge of the boys friends, they fent a Surgeon to their relief, and they are both in a fair way of doing well. However, they took the mailer into cuftody, and on the 25th ult. he was carried before a Magiftrate, who committed him to Salifbury gaol to take his trial for the faft at the next afuzes. Monday morning laft, very early, as fome drovers were driving fome oxen up the lane, near the Swan at Knightlbridge, from the back field, to bring them to Smithfield, one of the oxen fuddenly Hopped and fnorted at fomething; and when the drovers came up they found it to be a woman lying in the fndw; on which they fpojke to her in their wayj and then left her; but in a few hours after fhe was found dead. She proves to be a Gardiner's wife who worked at Brampton, and has left two'children. She was decently drefled, and was feen the Sunday night talking with a man at the door of theFulham-bridge, which was in her way home. How fhe came to be found in the lane, at the end of which there is a very high gate to get over into it, and is nearer to London than Ful-ham-bridge, occafions fome fpeculation amonj the inhabitants; but as the Coroner's Inqueli have fince fat on her body, and brought in their verdift, Accidental Death, we muft fup-pofe her being found in the lane was fufficient-Iy accounted for. OnFriday laft came on at Guildhall, before the Right Hon. Lord Mansfield, an aftion brought againft aHoufekeeper and a Conftable, for confining in the Compter a Servant-maid of the former, from Saturday night'till Monday morning.; when it appearing to the fatif-faftionof the Court, that the faid Servant had made a great difturbance', and had infuked her Mailer -very much, the Jn-ry brought i�> their verdicl, with only 20s. damages for the.Plaintiff. On Tuefday laft a man^.genteeHyvdrefied, went to the houfe of Mrs. Shaw,-the poor widow who has ktely opened a Hoikr's fhop in Gjeorge's-^ourt.Clerkenwell, and after-agreeing for a pair of the beft hGfe for himftlf, told her he belonged to a brewhoufe in St. john's-ftreet, (which he.named) and that another Gentleman there wanted a pair of ftockifigs of the beft andlargeft fize;therefore defired (he would let her little girl go With him, and3-he would fend the money for both. The child accordingly accompanied him with the", goods: bat when they came within fight of the brewhoufe, he took them from her, and--bid her go back and tell her mother to look him out fome ftockings for his children, and he would call immediately and pay for all, and then made off with his booty. This newly-revived kind of fraud has of teee been/ much praftifed, especially on young beginners-Yefterday Sarah M'Cabe, otherwife Ridge-ley, otherwife Flood, otherwife Clarke-; Mary Edgar, otherwife Brown, otherwife Hitch--ins, otherwife England, and Elizabeth".
