General Advertiser (Newspaper) - January 7, 1746, London, Middlesex The General Advertifer. Numb, 3807. WEDNESDAY, January 7, 1746-7. Deal, January 5. RRIVED Yefterday after Poft hh Majerty's Sloop the Shark, from a Cruize ; and remain with the Men of War, and the Outward-bound mention'd in my laft. Wind S.E. LONDON. The States of Sweden have declared Solemnly to the Mflc�Succeffor, ' That'as they arercowafleniibled for the *' fifft"i"ime fince the Arrival of his Royal' Highnefs, and �* theliappy Birth of Prince Guftavus, they have ultimately * refolved, as well for their abfent Countrymen as tMem- * felvea; that having of their own Free-will, ele&ed'the ' Prince-Royal and his MaJe-Defcendants to be Succeffora � to the" Thron= of Sweden, they perfifted, indepsndantly � of tht Oath they-had taken, in the Defign of maintain-� xde and defending his Royal Highnefs with their Fortune * ana Blood, repofing themfelves on -the Divine Protec-� tion.' This Refolution is faid to have been taken upon a Propofal made by the Grand Deputation, in order to de-itroy'the Report, which had been fpread by itl-defigning People, that there was a Party formed in the Kingdom, fupported by a Foreign Power, tr deprive the Prince-Royal of the Sacceffionto which he has been defied. The French King, in order to add to ihc Ceremony of rtceiving-.the new Dauphinefs, has erderetTa Bridge of ifoats to be laid ovcf the Seine, near Choifi, for her Paf-fage. y �' " y^he Pope having granted a Jubilee, to implore the Divine Mercy, and particularly a Ceffation of the DiAam-per reigning among the "Horned Cattle, the fame has been opened at Milan, with a very folemn Proceffion. It is at the Courts of Bonn and Duffeldorp that the chief BifficuUy occurs with regard to the Imperial Negotiation with' the Affociated Circles. All the Advices from the Palatine Court have been long in the Frenchified Strain ; and the Elector- of Cologn is going to Mergentheim, in order flay there fome Time j whether to avoid Solicitation, or to make a new Promotion Of Teutonic Knights, a little Tims is to difcover. What Mifunderftanding remains between the Imperial O>ort *n>{ the Princes of the Uppc R ��j;i�.tcd 10 the Demand of Winter-Quarters by the Commiflaries of the former in the Free-States of the Empire; but Means are taken as much as-poffrble, to bring this Affair to an amicable Accommodation. In the Reiation which the Marquis de Botta fent to the Council "of War at Vienna, upon the Breaking out of the Infurreftion at Genoa, he told them, among other Things, That ever fince the 25 th of November he had perceived fome very unfavourable Difpofttions in the Inhabitants ; that he had thought it neceftary, on that Occafion, to take Poffeffion of Fofi fan Remigno; and that the evil Intentions of the People having afterwards appeared more clearly, he had found it proper not only to reinforce the Guards near the City Gates, but had alfo required the Republick to fend him its principal Officers, to engage, by Oath, that they would not acl, directly, or indirectly, againfl the Intereft of her Imperial Ma-jefty.' Mr. Keene, the Britifh Minifter at Lifbon, makes a reat Figure there, and has frequent Aflemblies of the chief ortuguefe Nobility: But nothing is yet known there concerning the State of Things at Madrid, only that the Couriers do not pafs fo often as they did fome Time ago between the two Capitals. K The Paris Alamain of January 6, brought from Holland by one of the Duke's Retinue, fays, ' That Order* ' were fent to Marfhal Belleifle te attack the Auftrians * in Provence immediately,' [provided he found himfelf/ to be able, without rifquing his own Glory-J * as the leaft ' Difadvaauge on their Part would turn the Scale prodi-' gioufly ; for that 'twas doubtful whether on either Side ' they would be able again to penetrate into the State of * Genoa, which an incredible Number of the refolute * Populace feem'd determin'd to defend unanimoufly.' - On this Affair they feem to bdild great Expectations of bearing Sway again the next Campaign in Flanders,- if not prevented by the fame Young Hero, who has already baffled fome of their mightieft Schemes.

Yefterday being Twelfth Day, the fa�je was obferv'd at Court as a High Feliival, when the Knight?Companions of tht moft Noble Orders of the Garter, Thiftle and Bath, appeared in the Collars of their refpe&ive Orders. At Noon hi* Majefty, their Royal Highneffes the Prince and Princefs of Wales, the Duke and the Princefs Amelia, preceeded by the Heralds and Purfuivants at Arms, went in State to the Chapel Royal, and during the Offertory, his Majefty advane'd to the Altar, and according to ancient Cuftom of the Kings of England, offer'd three Purfes fill'd with Gold;" Frankmcenfe and Myrrh, in Commemoration of the Prefents made by the Eaftero Magi, at the Manifestation. There was a very numerous and fplendid Appearance at Court, on that Occafion. His Majefty and the Royal Family did not pjay at Cards nor Hazard; on Account of the Faft, which is this Day neither was there a Ball, but the fame is put off to Friday, We hear that his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland will certainly embark for Holland about the latter End of this Month. His Royal Highnefs's new-rais'd Regiment of Dragoons (compos'd chiefly of Kingston's Horfe) will embark at the fame Time. A few Days ago died Mr. Huift, many Years Town-Clerk of the Borough of Portsmouth, much lamented by all that knew him. We hear, that fome Perfons who were on board when his Royal Highnefs came over, will'be*tried, the Yawht having ftruck on the Sand near Dunkirk, being Low Wa-ter; which, had it been High, in all-Probability would have gone into that Harbour. Yefterday Edwin Lafcdles, of St. James's-Square, Efq; Member of Parliament for Scarborough, and Son of Henry Lafcelles, of Mincing-Lane, Member of-Parliament for Northallerton, was married to Mifs Daws, only Daughter of the late Sir Darcy Daws, Barr. an accom-pltfh'd young Lady with a large Fortune. On Monday laft was married at Allhallows,- London-Wall, Mr. Way-te Sadler, one of the Searchers and Scalers at Leadenhall, to Mifs Taylor, an- agreeable young Lady, with a handforae Fortune. On Sunday Mr. Hardifty, a Gentleman belonging to the Board of Ordnance, fet out for Invernefs, in order to give Directions for repairing the Fortifications of Fort St. George, and adding many new large Works, for ftreng-thening that Place. On Friday next the Lords Commiffioners and other* of "Chelfea-College, will meet in the HofpitaV Room in KUlegrew Court, Scotland-Yard, in order t& exarivine'fuch, ibperanuated Invalids as are worn out in the Ser-'vice^ef the Crown, to admit them into the Penfion of the College^ in> Cafe they make their Pretenfions conformable to hi3~Ma-jefty's Inftruitibnj. 'OnMonday died, in a very advanced Age, atbisHoufe in Crutched Fryers, Capel Wall, Efq; a very eminent Merchant, and fnfurer. Yefterday died, at his Houfein Gould-Square, Crutched-Fryers, Henry Lyons, Efq; a Gentleman of very considerable Fortune in Antigua j greatly efteem'd by all that knew him. c Yefterday Morning as the Chariot of Robert Thornton, Efq; of Clapham, was coming through the BtiftSngb, it was overturn'd by a Dray, by which Accident tmr^Gqach-man had the Misfortune to break his Leg. 1 On Monday laft was committed to the New Goal in � Southwark, by JMice Baynton, John Paflners, and James Smith, two Soldiers, on the Oaths of James Dagwejl and Richard Ball, for felonioufly ftealiug five Geefe", belong-. ing to Mr. Eggby of Putney. The Way to May-Fair Chapel is thro.' Picadilly-,|by the End of St. James's-irreet, and down Cfarges-ftreet, and turn on the Left-Hand. The Marriages (together with* Licence on a Fwe Shilling Stamp, and Certificate) are carried on for a Guinea, as ufual, any Time 'till Four in -the Afternoon, by another Clergyman, at the Little Chapel in May-Fair, near Hyde-Park Corner, oppofite the Great Chapel, and within Ten Yards of it. There is 3 Porch at the Door like a Country Church Porch. A brief Account of the Earl of Tyrconnel's Cruelty in Ireland, during the Power of King James tbt Second: r i VHE Proteftant Clergy felt, upon all Occafions, the >JL Weight of TyrconnePs Wrath. The Priefts began 'to declare openly^ That the Tithes belonged to rhem, and "Lforbid thej/reople, under the Pain of Damnation, to pay I them to the Proteftant Incumbents. This paffed afterwards into an Aft of Parliament, by which, not only'all Tithes payable by Papifts were given to their own Pnefts, but likewife a Way was found out to make the Popifh Clergy capable of enjoying the Proteftant Tithes. The only great Nurfery of Learning in Ireland, is the Univerfity of Dublin, confining of a Provoft, feven Senior and nine Junior Fellows, and fevsnty Scholars, who are partly maintain'd by a yearly Salary outof the Exchequer. This Salary the Earl of Tyrconnel ftopt, merely for their not admitting into a vacant^ Fellowfhip, contrary to their Statutes and Oaths, a vicious ignorant Perfon, who was a new Convert. Nor could he be prevailed with by any Interceffion or Entreaty, to remove the Stop ; by which in effect, he diffolved the Foundation, and fhut up the (Fountain of Learning and Religion. In the Houfe they placed a Garrifon, and turned the Chapel into a Magazine, and the Chambers into Prifons for the Proteftants. One Mare, a Popifh Prieft, was made Proyeft; and one Mack-arty, alfo a Prieft, was made Library-Keeper j and the whole defign'd for them and their Fraternity. One Archbifhoptick, and feveral Bifhopricks, and a great many other Dignities and Livings of- the Church, were designedly kept vacant, and'the Revenues firit paid into the Exchequer, and afterwards difpos'd of to Titular Bifhops and Prielti, while in the mean Time the Cures lay neglefted ; fa that it appear'd plainly, that the Defign waa to dellroy the Succeffiou of Proteftant Clergymen.
