Wind W. by N. Grave/end, Jan. 22. Pafied by the NcV.'oerg, Dowey, from Marfeiiles. LONDON. HOUSE of C O M M O N S. Saturday, January 23. The Speaker tock the Chair at a quarter pari two o'clock. The Marvuis of Graham took the oaths; and his feat for Great Bedwin, he having vacated Ids feat in confequence of a late promotion, and having been re-chofen for that Borough. 'Lord Courtoun appeared at the Bar, and ftrmed the Houfe, that his Majefty wouii be Veady to receive the Addrefs of that Houfo a: half pail two o'clock. The order of.the day was then read, which to take into confideration that part cf his Majefty's Speech which refers to th� Corn Trade. Mr. Rofe moved, that this order be poHponed 10 Monday next; to which the Houfe agreed. Mr. Refe then moved, that the Houfe do cri Monday next refolve itfelf into a Committee of the whole 'Houfe, to confider of fupplics to b^  grattted {o his Majefty-Agreed to. Mr,. Secretary Grenville brought up forhe papers from the Governor of Qqebec, relative to the exportation and importation of corn, as ordered to be referred to the Commute* appointed tfr take this fubjeft into confideration. Frith, tHe manrac, who on Thurfday laft threw a ftone with great- violence at' the facrfcd j perfon of his Majefty, as he paffed in ftate to the 1 Houfe of Peer?, was on Saturday morning taken ' by Mr. Morley, the meflengcr, in whofe cuftody he is, a thigj^ time before his Majefty's Mini-fters, at th^ office of the Secretary of State for the Home Department, where this alarming af-fa'urt was further inveftigated. Still ilronger proofs of the prifone^s lunacy rrppeared; two females were e>"4inined, one of whom was a relation of Friih'sr anA'bot;^ t"ftirled his infanity ; they faid thsts iu- * 0i- a gentleman who lives at Cheiiea, ,^ this unhappy man had ac- cufed of tre.aing him ill, had, on the contrary, been almoft the only friend he had left after the death of his father, who was a life-guardiman, and afcer gaining his difcharge from the regiment, a dktiller, and lived in Glafs-iioufe-ftreet, St. James's. Tnis man, for his good conduit as a foldier, had the King's letter for fome years^ before his dLlbhition. To Mr. Burnfall u Frith Mr. Vil^ers, Mr. Phipps, Mr. Elliot, &c. At - indebted for the firft commnuon he ppfTsfTed, half paft two- o'clock the Speaker of he Houfe J which was in the 37th regiment, and r.lfo for of Commons, attended by Lord Vifcount Valle- ! his exchange into the ioth regiment of foot, tort and Mr. Cawthorne, came with.the Addrefs j It was with,this re^imen't-as he afferts in the. paper which he had written, and ituck up in the Coart-yard at St. James's, and at the Royal Exchange, where he publicly read it, in the fatie frantic ityle he had written it-that he was roinp-to Jamaica ; out to conceal a mutiny which happened on board the fliip in which he was, the. officers put l-.'m on more, on an ifland inhabited by evil fpirits, who tormented and teazed'him few the icnor time he remained there. In this paper he charges the King with having broken his Coronation Oath, and of having committed a&s of felony. The charge of felony he extends to the Privy Council, who, with the King and his Mimflers, he affirms, are fubverting and totally destroying the purity and excellence of our envied conllitution. The man who took this paper from the Court-yard at St. James's, and carried it to the Duke of Leeds, was rewarded by his Grace with five guineas. Samuel Spur-way was again heard.- Mr. Griffith, who was agent to Lieutenant Frith, attended, but was not. examined. The prifoner was remanded into the cuftody of Mr. Morley. The excellent character which this unhappy maniac bore, previous to his prefent afrlicT:ion> makes us lament his fituation. Benzielilierna, the Swede, who was condemned to be beheaded at Copenhagen, has been pardoned, at the interceffion of the Emprefs of Raffia ; but he is to be imprifoned for life. On Friday evening late a woman very meanly habited came to the houfe �f Mr; Meadows in Tottenham-court "road ; and on pretence that her hulband was at the point of death, prevailed upon him, ,a& iig, ntjclonged to a fociety for relieving the fick attheir own houfe., to go with her to a place called Rats CalUe, near Buckridge-flreet, St. Giles's.-Here upou fome ftraw in a wretched apartment, without either' fire, or any thing to fit upon, a man was lying ft'emingly in much agony, but who recovering himfelf when Mr. Meadows entered, refufed a cordial he offered him, telling him that every thing but his prayers were now too late.-Mr. M. upon this kneeling �bwr;, the woman threw herfelf upon him; while the pretended dying manj and another perfon who came into the room, put the candle cut, rifled his pockets of his watch and money; with the moft horrid imprecations.-They then left hint, threatening to return and do his bulihefs, if he dffered to ftuy which preventing his making an alarm for a confid'era&e titnej they got clenr off. -It appeared by the tcftimohy of the neighbours that a man and woman had taken the room but a day, or two before* the man apparendy a cripple, as he walked with a crutch. On Thurfday the 14th inftarK, abbut midnight, the houfe of the Reverend Dr. Wilmot, at Barton on the Heath, in the county of Warwick, was broke open by a large gartg^ of armed ruffians, two of whom entered the room in which Mifs Wilmot flept (her uncle, the Do&or, not being at home), and with moft horrid threats demanded to know where the money was. Mifs Wilmot behaved with the grcateft courage, as well as coolneft. She1 heard one of them whifper the other, who anfwered, no, you bleody villain, toe ivill not Ml man, nucjfcan, or child.- After this they nailed the door of Mifs Wilmot's room, as likewife the fervants doers, and having ranfacked the Houfe, and robbed it ^of every thing they could find, drank a great deal of wine, brandy, Sic. and did not leave the houfe till near five in the morning.-The two that Were in Mifs Wilmot's room faid they had fix more along with them ; though it is rather imagined they were, but five in nwmfeer. Two of thefe villains were apprehended at Enftone yefterday fe'nnight, each having upon thcrn fome of 'the Doilor's property, and were c6mmhtedr-by the Rev.' Charles Willes, the day following, to Warwick gaol; and on Monday a third belonging to the gang was taken at Witney, and on Wednefday committed by the farfte Magillrate to the above gaol; on whom was likewife found a part of Doctor Wilmot's prc-perty, and Mifs Wilmot fwears to this laft being jne of the perfons who came to her bed-fide. A few days ago, an inn keeper at Chefter ma to fwcar" to the father of two baftard children, of which they had been delivered about the fame time. Each, fwore, that her miftrefs's fon, a fchool -boy, was the father of her child. The hopeful young gentleman being only thirteen yean old, his mother tried the caufe at the laft Worcefter Seflions, when the Bench declared the matter go be im'p>ffibU ! which Corififted of the following ingredients, viz. 48 potmds of flour, and 18 pounds of butter formed the Cruft; a quarter of pork, made Into mince meat, at the bottom; three ..geefe, two hares; one turk,eyr three partridges boned, an4 a neat's tongue. The pie coft four millings baking.
