By the compl cated nature of this return thefe votes will be now fubjeiteJ to a feriou-s fcrutiny. The firft thirteen Lords on the lift will be returned as havinsr a clear majority. The next five, as having ah the fame number of votes, will be returned in that way, but three only can be finally declared duly elected. The Lords who have ftill fewer votes, however, may petition not only aga:nft thefe five, but generally, againft all, and a fcrutiny of the (vhols poll will be the cqnfe-quence. A Committee has been appointed lately to examine the lift of Army Surgeons, and give in the names which they approve of for appointments to foreign fcrvice, with the forces and the garrifons abroad-of courfe thofe who ftand high in the lift, and were beft known in America during the laft war, are mcrft likely to- be tele�led^ Yefterday a Court of Aldermen was held, prefent the Lord-Mayor, 14 Aldermen, and Sheriff Newman. The price of bread was continued as before. Nine brokers were allowed and feven fworn. The appeal of William Chapman, againft the watch-rate for the Ward of Cheap, was hetrd and difmifled the appeal not being within the time limited by aCf of Parliament. William Jones, Efq; was admitted one of the four Common Pleaders in the room of John Syl-vefter, Efq. refigned. The Court eleded Mary Cramthaw, a poor old woman, into EmmanuelHofpitali and Mary Beaten Smith, a poor little orphan, into the fame to be educated. Some years 3go an Irilh Gentleman bought a horfe, with a very curious pedigree, of a great Dealer in Yorkfhire. In going over to Ireland, unfortunately the pedigree was loft; apon which the Gentleman wrote to the Dealer for another copy. The Dealer's reply was, " if he would pledge bis honour that it was really loft, he would fend either a copy of that, or another as gbod." On Sunday evening Mr. B. the profecutor of a well-known cornfaftor, put a period to his exilt-ence, at his houfe at Walworth. \ cfbrday afternoon, the Boyne, a fine new fhip of 98 guns, was launched at Woolwich ; and the Leviathan, of 74, at Chatham- The command of the latter is given to Lord Mulgrave, and of the former to Capt. Bowyer. Some of the fpettators of the launch of the Boyne, on their return, walked acrofs the bridge of a dry dock, which gave way ; and 15 perfons, among whom was a very genteel woman, fell 24 feet into about a foot and a half of water. Fortunately no mateiial damage was fuitained by "any of them, excepting one man, whofe leg was broken. Sunday the marriage bans for nolefs than thirty-eight couple were publiibed in the parilh-church of St: Martm in the Fields. James Shipley, who murdered his mother in March laft, at Burton-opon-Trent, has been con- ] vifted at Stafford affixes, and executed. The Rev, John Henry Clapham, M. A.
