But should the Number be drawn a Prize of 50I. or upwards during the said ..sjxdays, TWELVE Whole undrawn STATE LOTTERY TICKETS shall be delivered to the fortunate Claimant on demand. HALF A GUINEA will be entitled to Half the above benefits. f. t 1 J OBSERVATION. j The advantage arising from the above plan cannot be better 1 pointed out than by comparing it with the chance of a ' WHOLE Lottery Ticket.

Again, the purchaser of a sixteenth part of a ticket, which will cost neara Guinea, must be fortunate enough to have a Prize of 2000I. before he can gain 125L whereas In the above plan theorizes of 50I. will produce more .than 200I. nay even Half a Guinea laid out in the above plan will produce nearly as much in case of a prize of 50I. as a sixteenth of a ticket can produce in case of a prize of 2000L It should also be considered, that the value of theTwe/^ Tickers is not the sole ob^eft, 'but the"holding of twelve or srx tickets through the whols&ortery, which originally cost, the owner only One Guinea,' or Haifa Guinea.

Th ursday, February S, COMMERCIAL TREAT! the that the papers already on the Table of thc imports and exports, were not sufficient for their Lordships' information, "he therefore wished to have the account of imports and exports prior to 1784. Lord CAERMARTHEN said the. Custom-house accounts prior to 1784, were not sufficiently con-eft to give any material information; mon. HAWKESBURY STORMONT to 1784, Lord CAERMARTHEN promissd they should be laid before the House, on which the Noble Viscount withdrew his motion. The Duke of NORFOLK moved that there be laid before the House an account of all the coals exported from this country to Holland, France and Germany, within the last fifteen year's. LOTTERY BfLL. Lord SYDNEY moved, That the Lottery-Bill be read a second time. Lord DERBY reprobated the Bill in strong terms-and insisted, that it was to encourage gambling and gamblers. Lord SYDNEY insisted, that what he had done, was merely official-as to gamblers, thank Qod, he was not acquainted with any-nor did he, or would he ever associate with anys let their situation in life be ever so exalted. Lord DERBY confessed, that he was not so niece in the choice of his company, as the Noble Secretary, but was confident the BUI in question was a job of somebody*s, to serve somebody. Lord HOPETOUN defended the Bill, as a wise and-prudent measure. Lord SIORMONT attacked the Bill as opening a door to gambling, that no other Bill had ever done before. Ke had sefn, he said, gambling and gamblers in many countries; and if the Noble Secretary was to. make it a rute not to associate With any man who had broke thro' the laws of his country, by losing more than iol. at a' sitting, his acquaintance would be much narrowed 5 and he believed he could scarce associate with any one in that House. The CHANCELLOR defended the Bill, which he said was intended to remove the evils complained of 5 and therefore he hoped to see it go to a Committee ; if any Noble Lord should then see a reason for proposing an alteration, it might easily be done. Lord CARLISLE confessed, that he felt the force of what the Noble Secretary had said, relative to gamblers; he thanked him for the admonition, bowed, and kissed the rod-that chastized him, but when he sinned, it was owing "to the inexperience of youth. The Bill was'then read a second tim'e, and ordered to be committed for to-morrow (this day). Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Th u,rsld a Yy February j?.

When the dinners,. together with all the ^rgunjents should,be finished, there was uo doubt thit the House would be full enough and, ripe, to decide-? but until that hour, surely no cpnvers'&tiQh could be too trifling.
