No intelligence had arrived of the naval praparations in Europe. The King's (hips were on the point of failing to their fummer ftations. Yefterday, at two o'clock in the afternoon, the Lord Chancellor waited on his Royal Highnefs the Prince of Wales, at Carleton-houfe, with whom his Lordfhip had a private interview for upwards of two hours. His Serene Highnefs the Duke of Orleans had an audience of leave of his Royal Highnefs the Prince of Wales yefterday at Carleton-houfe, previous to his departure for France.

If a Member be found guilty of purchaling an Elector's vote, it difqualifies him from his feat in Parliament; but if that Elector be the file Elector, i. e. the Proprietor of the^Borough, he can fell his vote to two Gen lemen in the open view-of the Twelve Judges, if he pleafes, and return them both to Parliament, legally, without any notice taken of the corrupt traffic !
