Daily Courant (Newspaper) - February 3, 1730, London, Middlesex lie Daily Courant:. No. 88gf; Tucicl.iy, February 3, 17x9-30. Berlin, January 31. N. S. THE Queen, who has been indifpo-fed for lomc Dm f} was taken fo ill in the N-.ghr, rhat the Kmg came hither Folt this Day rrom lotfdam. We hope, however, her Majcfty's llnefs will not be attended with any bad ' Confequence; though we cannot deny our being in a great deal of Pain about it. Ye-ftfrday the Barcn de Lobcn, a Lieutenant-General, was feized with a Fit of Apopiexy, aad is not yet out of Danger. This Day the Count de Lvnar, Gentleman of the King of Poland's Bed Chamber, arrived here m the Quality o: L.nvoy-Exrr*ordinary of that Prince. Some Letters from Dreldcn advife, that the Marquis M^o, Arrb?!fador of France, was arrived there from Warlaw, and took a great deal of Pains .0 bring over the King of Poland, if polfibie, (as ciedtor of SaxonyJ into the Inrerefts of thr Allies of Hanover. Vienna, Jan. 25. N. S. The new Levies for the Imperial Troops are conrinned with good Succefs. Neverchelefs we cannot believe a \V�r wiU break out upon Account of the Settlement of Don Carlo? in Italy; the Allies of Hanover having no Defign to bring it about that way, but rather by gentle Methods. And who knows but Time may produce a Change in the Face of Affairs; fuch, for Inftarice, as the Death of the Great Duke of Tulcany, who, according to an Exnrefs that arrived here two Days ago, lay dan-geroufly 1!! ? On the other hand, we are more apt to chink there will be a War in Poland next Summer ; if it be true, as we hear, that his PoliQi Mapfty has Thoughts of returning into his Kingdom at the Head of a numerous Armv, to give Weight to his Demands ; wherein he will be fiipported by the Courts of Vi-una and Berlin. That Prince has no. my be:poke a great Number of Tenrs he, , which are to be made after the Turkifh Fafhinri, but is alfo buying up all the beft Turkifh Horfes his Jockeys can light on. To the Author of the Daily Courant. S I R, TT WING perufed the Remarks in the White-Jl Jj[ ;i ii Evening Pol: or Saturd-iy lali, on the Anfwer of an i'roprietor cf South Sea Stock, 8cc publifhed in die, I had prepare! a few Thought, for a full a:id clinching Reply; bin revolving them a fccond time, I b-gan ro think there wis no great Occasion for it, and that I might farefy leave that excel!enr Performance to every one to judge of according to his Opinion, in I;mr..tion of that Author/ whole Example, having a nafu-a! I.-cttna-tio.i to Brevry, I find very convenient to follow; and I fubmir it to the fame Judges, Wnetner the Inftrument employ \i has been pointed enough, tc> rake out the Sting in the Tail of the, �which itemed to give his P_tien:x fo much !'asn. His lair I'a'agraph is ;v >.v, wherein he is plea-fed to fay >o this tried, 77 :t it e preventive or re-^itUt'vnr Private Trad-, carried en in a f-amelefs Manner by the Company's S-. yj.-r.f s, and in tie Company's Slips, is the only Fear of the prefent Difference; and t'm.r heha* Authority to f:y, if the prefent Sub-Governor l'ad :i-.eparation, i.'i making an opposite Lift, exepted rhemleives, deferve to be cha-raftrrize ' wiih thofe agreeable Hpithets ? Which or" them h^s taken a Tenth Part of the Pains the >ub-(iovernor has done, in the forming of New Regulat;ons ro prevent Abufes it the Company's Trade a> a Factories ? Nay, with what Lduftry has he '-een obffnidted in thac Work by lome of thofi very Gent:emen, whom this Author would diiTin^uinl for vien of Virtue, fuperior to others? It thofe wim initiuft him had been as willing, as I fupp:>fj they are able, to tell him the Truth, he would have afiigned other Reafons for the Appealance of two Lilts ; too many tor me to repeat, and too fe/ere for the fofr Pen I write with. I cannot bu: lament the Misfortunes, under which the Proprietors are, in too g;eat Probability, tailing, by the Indifcretion of thofe, who in the belt Senle do not difcern, or if they do, are criminally chargeable with the Conferences ot what they publim : If they are Directors who are concerned in this Madnefs, I fliould have hoped their Oath, and a juft Regard to the Duty of their TrurT, would have taught them more Piudence: Abufes and Misbehavour of Officers in tiie Exercife of a Trade, for which we are accountable to a foreign Power, ihould be corrected and reformed in a more proper Manner than by Appeals to the People. But this would not anfwer the End of thofe honefi and unprejudiced Gentlemen: The World mutt be alarmed, and thofe or fome of them that cry out, have an End no ways juftifiable to be ferved by it, which in Tendemefi, to them, however unmerited, I am unwilling to explain. I fhall fay bur one Word more on this dif. agreeable Subject. The Facts afferted of private Trade, are either true or falfe; if true, they will undoubtedly be punifhed, and with a proper Re-fentment; if falfe, the Suggeftion is bafe and infamous ; and whether true or falfe, the exposing the n in the Manner they have been, is exceedingly prejudicial to the Common Intereft of the Company, in their Concerns both at Home and Abio.-d. I conclude with leaving thefe Subjects ro every one to judge of according to his Opinion, without giving Y.y'elt or the Publick any further Trouble. I am, cjv. Whereas my Name has been inferred in the London Evening Toft on the �0;h of January lair, an,' iii the Daily Pofi on the 2d Inftanr, as ir fe-ver.-d S'roprierors of rhe South-Sea Company at a Meet ng, had agreed to joyn John Radge, Efq; and nie rogcther forS^b and Deputy-Governor of rhe 'South Sea Company, I do by this declare, that fuch -\ iverrifement U contrary to my Knovv-ie'ge a:id Intent ; and therefore I defire all my Friends ro jiyn their Intereft with mine in voting for Sir Jnhn ijles to be Sub-Governor, (and, if thy think fir) my'eif for Deputy Governor, as hath been all along inferred in the Prints. IVitnefs my Hand, John- Handury. To the Author of the Daily Courant. SLR, iNCE the South-Sea Company refoiv'd on Trading again, the Advices from the EnpJiPi Merchants redding at Cadiz in general import, That the Spaniards are very much grieved thereat, and rhar i> 1. -o rheir very great Damage; for the Tr-^crs ro Xciv Spain will not buy any of the Bri-tif: Sea Company cannot inrerfere : And that the Spaniards have made repeated Complaints againlt th;s Trade, and 'he Great Private Trade carried on by the Company's Sloops from Jamaica, &c. of which they have had fujficient Evidence from Spaniards, who have been ar Kew Spain; and not horn any Information from hence, as hath been falfcly fuggefted to anfwer private Ends. And how could they be wanting in fuch Evidence, when this Trade has been carried on, io that flagrant Manner, in the Anrual Ships, and by the Sloops from Jamaica;Jmany Inftar.c.s whereof you have already publifh'd, and ro which no Anfwer has yet been given. I would ask the Writer of rhe Fetter in the Daily Journal, tut. 0 I believe knows a great deal, whether the Company hath any more Credit in their Account, from tne Earnings of their Sloops at Jamaica, than for the carrying down about 4000 Negroes per Ann. for the Affiento ; which the Merchants at Jamaica would tranfport for a very final! Marter, with rhe Advantage of rhe Flower, Provifionsj Srores for Shipping, Powder, &T-c* which the Spaniards permit to be brought on board the VelTels which introduce the Negroes ? If the Company has no Profit from the Flower, &c they muff have loll by the Sloops, by Computation^ about 70,000 /. and if the Company can :rade in a more frugal way, by tranfportinf� the Negroes on Freight, than by employing the Sloops, the nor doing of it is a Diilipar on. A Gentleman who has 1600 / per Annum, but. mortgaged for the annual Payment of 350/. cannot, with any Propiie-y, be faid to hive his Eftate entire, though he receives the Rents ot his Tenants himielf. If thofe employed by the Company, or their Servants, fhall have (in the Trade ro Africa, Bu$nos Aires, and to Xeiv Spain, as well as from Jamaica') carried on a large Private Trade (or their owrx Profit, at the Expence, and ro the great Detriment of the Company, which how ever notorious, hath never been futfer'd to be enquired into, much lefs dilcouraged ; It is fubmirted, whether it will not be for the Intereft of the Proprietors, to choofe fuch Perfons on whom they may depend, for the Prevention of thefe Abufes and Injuries for the future, and for the examining into part Mifconducts ; and for that End, 'tis recommended to them to make Choice of JOHN R U D G E, Efc for Sub-Governor. And for Sir RICHARD HOPKINS, KM. and Aid. For Deputy-Go: crnor. LONDON. The Spikes Merchant, Capt. Erown lately t Brilfol, met in Lar. 40 and 40, the Granada, from Jamaica, bound for London, having bten at Sea 9 Weeks; fhe had loft her Malts bir iiad got up a Jury Malt. Tei'icdc!)'
