General Evening Post (Newspaper) - February 18, 1790, London, Middlesex -. :.r- (L O N D O Price Three-Pence Halfpenny only. From THURSDAY, FEBRUARY l8, to 8 A TURDA Y, FEBRUARY 20, 1790. 8^ FRIDAY, Feb. 19. WEST-IN D I E S.

The William, Ventries, from Greenock to North-Carolina, is loft; crew faved. All the artificers belonging to the Dock-yard at Deptford are turned to work on the Brunfwick, a 74-gun ihip, of a particular and very curious conilruction, on the llocks there. She is to be made ready to launch fo early as the latter end of April. The reafon of this uncommon difpatch is faid to be as follows : when the Brunfwick fhall be perfectly fitted for fea, the Duke of Clarence, firfl promoted to the rank of Admiral, will hoift his flag on board her, and take upon ^ him the command of a fquadron to convoy his Royal Father to Hanover.. The Brunfwick may with eafe be in perfect readiuefs by the middle of June, and at the clofe of that month, in all probability, the fquadron will fail for the Elbe. Although the Brunfwick will be larger than any other fnip of the fame rate, and capable of carrying the metal of a ihip of 90 guns, her draught of water will be very eafy, fb as peculiarly to calculate her for the above voyage. Derrick, the fuppofed Maniac, was yeflerday re-examined by Sir Sampfon Wright and Mr. Bond ; but as no intelligence has been received from Cheihire, where he faid he refided, little new light was thrown on the fubjeft. Several quellions were put to him, but no direft anfwers could be obtained. Among other ravings, he declared he was fent from heaven to fave finners from everlafting puniihment; and he had every appearance of infanity. He Avas re-commi.ted to Tothill-fields, Bridewell, for farther examination. On Tuefday night a number of ruffians broke into, and plundered, the Crown-office, in Crown office-row, Inner Temple. They forced their way into the apartments of Mr. Barlow, and thence palling into the other offices, opened every delk, and took off the c�h, and whatever elie was found valuable. We do not learn, that any of the papers are miffing. Wednefday evening a fanner of Kent was inveigled into a public houfe near Whitechapel by two iharpers, who pretended to be his countrymen, and who defrauded him of near ish Hints to Speculators in Lotteries'. , The Lottery his been the caufe of moire bankrupts for thefe Jfive years pafl, than will be , readily believed by thofe who are not in the fe-cret; by fpecuktions in tickets at exorbitant prices, with �rhich the (peculators have been forced into theiwheel, from .the decreafe of demand, and confequent fall of price, on the approach of the drawing; and from the mifchiefs of infurance, which is ftill a greater evil, as it fpreads far and wide among the lower ranks of the people ; it is to be hoped that our virtuous M'inifter will profit by the example of France, and abolilh altogether this infamous traffic.- The fale of tickets is now chiefly confined to thofe fold in fhares, and therefoYe affefts the middle and lower ranks of life mod. It is a notorious fact, that not one half of the tickets are fold whole within thefe five years, that were fold before that period ; this is owing to-various caufes, among which may be enumerated, I .*he high price &ttice, [238 t..e faid Company will be he'J af their Mi.-ul'e i) Lcadenball Street, on .Wsdn.-fJ- - That a G p.cral Court of tii Djy .it" Vhrv C [238 je he ay, the 3d ji u:cir .-'ii;u;c )�) i>c;mfijjj�i); ouuei, on . *v cuu.-iuay, uic 3a Djy .*t" VLrvh 11-jcr, fri'itn Nine o' rhe Mornlnguntil 'mx in the live-iing tot th; Ebction oi a Director of the fjid Company, in the Room of jcfcpii Sparkes, Efq; dcc^ifed.
