Ixtrafi of a Letter from the Provifl of Dumfries to a Merchant at Lancafter. ' Two Gentlemen that iray be depended on, riding be-' tween MofFetand the Crook, on Saturday, Nov. 2, met ' a Countryman, about three Mies from the Crook, who * drank his Majefty's, the Royal Family's, with divers ^ ' other loyal Healths, and a large Bonfire was erected be- ^ ' fore the Exchange, and feveral Barrels of Ale were given ' to the Populace, fine Fireworks were played of from the ' Tower of the Cathedral, and every Thing was conducted ' with the greateft Regularity, great PleaSure appearing in ' the Countenances of all Perfons whatfoever ; and the ' Evening concluded with Ringing of Bells, Bonfires in ' molt Parts of the City, Illuminations and other Demou-' ftrations of Joy. ' The Room Where the Gentlemen met was finely illu-' minated, and in the Centre was writ in large Letters, ' King George !�riumi hunt, and his Succefficn EverL'fling. IRELAND. Dublin. Nov. 2. Laft Monday his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant ilfued out a Proclamatian forbidding the {Exportation of all Kinds of Grainj to prevent the Kebe^ from being furnifhed with the fame from this Kingdom. \ Laft Wednefday being the Anniverfary of his Alajefty's Birth, the fame was obferved here with greater Demon-ftrations of Joy by all Degrees of People, than ever was known upon the like Occafion. There was a fine Ode, wrote by the Rev. Mr. Lewis Burrowes, and Set to Mufkk by Mr. Dubourg, and perform'd at the Caftle, which was decorated and illuminated in the molt grand and elegant Tafte; the Square of the Caftle being finely painted ; tiie Gate leading to the lower Caitie Yard was a very Triumphal Arch, very finely painted, and over that the King's Arms, with the Profile of his Majefty on the Right JL Side, and that of the Prince of Wa'es on the Left, all O properly emblazon'd, on fine Muflin with Lamps behind, ^ which made the molt beautiful .Appearance. On each O Window of the Caftle were the Letters G. R. with a*"^ Crown above them, and 38 Lamps burning to each : In t-j the Centre of the Building on the Right Wing were the Arms of the Earl of Chelterfield; and the Left thofe of his Countefs, as Countefs of Wallingham, in her own Right, properly coloured with Lamps burning before them. The Supper Room was alfo decorated in tiie molt beautiful Manner with fine beautiful Paintings, Illuminations and Statues, the Entrance into it having a Temple of Minerva, in the Pediment of which was a BaSTo Relievo of his Majelly, to which the Motto was Parcere fubje&'s CS5 debcliaer fufer-bos. Within the Temple there rofe a large and beautiful Obeli Sic, which feemed all one Blaze of Light from the Number of Wax Tapers which illuminated it ; and over the Sideboard which Surrounded the Infide of the Terr.ple at a proper Height, quite round, were feveral beiHtifuI Statues, which poured out a perpetual Flow of the choicest Wines of all Sorts into rich BaSons properly placed to receive them, from whence the Liquor was conveyed by private Pipes into the Lower Callle Yard, where it played off in feveral Fountains of Wine during the whole Entertainment to give the Populace an Opportunity to drink his Majefty's Health and Long Life, and Confufion to all his Enemies, which they heartily and Sincerely did^ with many repeated Vollies of loud Huzzas. The whole feemed a Sort of Paradicc, and fhe Number and Beauty of the Ladies made it rather appear an Enchantment than a Re- ^ ality. Her Excellency the Lady Chelterfield, in order to q fet an Example to the Lad;es of this Kingdom, did us the ^ Honour to wear on that Occafion an Head-Drefs of IriSh Bruflels or Needlework, of the Manufacture of Mr. and ^ Mrs. Baker of Abby-ftreet, which in the Opinion of all the n> Company, far exceeded in Beauty any Foreign Brufiels, Point, Mechlin, or Drefden ; and it is hoped that her Ex- * cellency's good Example will have fuch an Effect, as not only to induce all the Ladies of this Country to wear the Same Kind of Lace, but incline our Parliament to give fuch Encouragement to the Undertakers, as may effectually Stop the IiTue of thefe immenfe Sums which are annually fent out to itrenghthtn the Enemies of our molt happy Ef-tabliihmenU and the Liberty and Repofe of Europe, for Prench '1 rifles and Nuns Work, ADVERTISEMENTS are taken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-House, in Lombard-Street.
