Mr. Pitt did not arrive till after the Drawing-00m was over, when he had an audience in the ^lofet, as had alfo the Dukes of Leeds, Rich-nond, and Dorfet, Marquis Saliibury, and Mr. .(viler. Mr. Pitt; in his few days retirement at Hol-Vsoodi has been b.ufily employed, In eonjunfftion with Mr. Grenville and Lord (Sbatham, in minutely examining fiieh Spanifh Treaties and papers as any way tend to throw light bn the fiib-ject at prefent in difpute between this country and ipain. The Emprefs of Ruflia is not included in the negotiation now going on at Reichenbach. She confented that her ally, the King of Hungary, tfiould make a feparate peace. Nothing will contribute mofe to the riling Tgteatnefs of America, than that unbounded proration and toleration fhe holds forth to all fedts and defcriptions of men. The Roman Catholics, Protettants, and Quakers^, live therein one common bond of amity, and though there Is an cftablifhed religion in every particular State, the DiiTenters from it are not precluded fi-.orh offices either of honour or profit.. The liberality of fen-timent, by which the celebrated General Wafiiing-jonhas at all times been actuated; was never more apparent than ori a �eceht occafionj when an fcddrefs was prefented to him by the Roman Catholics of America. He aflured them; in the -character of Prefident of the United States, of the utmoft protection of Government, and the fame liberty enjoyed by other citizens. Yefterday morning a new - conftrutted eamp tent was put up in St. James's gardens for the infpection of his. Majefty, to whom it was introduced by the Duke of Richmond, Sir William Fawcitt, and General Morriton; it is j'z fe"et in circumference, and will flow 15 men to flCep in ; at noon 12 privates of the firft regiment were brought before his Majelly, and lay down in the tent with their heads to the meeting, and their feet to the pole in th'e centre, by way of exemplification. His Majefty feemed highly pleafeei with the invention. On Mdirday next,will be iffued, from the of-�.qe of tJhePaymailer General, 182 days pay to the reduceF^fficers of his Majefty.'s forces, irom ike 25th of December to'the 24th of June !*ft"; olfo fix months allowance for the lame period id the gentlemen of the late 3d and 4*h troops of horfe-guards. Lord Orford, fince the accident of the fire, has not honoured Houghton with much of his company. His time is chiefly divided betwixt two fmall houfes, one near Barton Mills, and one on Epping Foreft. Houghton Houfe, however, is by no means neglected; the part which was injured by the fire is reftoring to its former fplen-dour, and many of our bell artifts are at prefent employed by his Lordfhip, in works of ftatuary and. painting, to adorn the rooms as they are iinifhed. Lord Afhburnham employs his noble eftate of twenty-five thoufand pounds a year in plaining, agricultural improvements, and a liberal cultivation of the fine arts, in which the art of eating is not neglected. It is very wonderful that a collection of paintings io numerous and fo valuable fhould have excited fo Httle of the public attention as thofe which adorn Afhburnham Houfe. A native of India, named Juggul Gho/e, died in November fatt near Calcutta, and no lefs than two females, who claimed the honour of being his wives, devoted themfelves voluntary facrifices on his funeral pile. The Maria, Morlet, from Bengd to Oftend, is loft at the Cape of Good-Hope. By a letter from Ireland there is intelligence that the Fox floop was wrecked a few nights ago/ near Kilkadrane Point; the gentlemen on board, with the crew, were faved. The Dafhwood packet, Capt. Roberts, which brought over the Leeward Iflands mail, has alfo brought remittances for the merchants to the amount of ..upwards of ioo,oool. Jnecdote of the late Dr. Franklin.-Among the many valuable qualities for which this great character was diftinguifhed, an evennefs and tranquillity of" mind were not the leaft obfervable. A gentleman paffihg the Doctor's lodgings while in London, called to enquire after his health. It happened to be dinner time, and the room was full of a feleft party. The Dodor, however, received him with much familiarity, but the fervant in reaching a chair threw down a very curious weather-glafs of considerable value, and broke it to pieces. The gentleman was extremely concerned at the accident, and began to make an apology for his being the caufe of it; but the Do&or with great good humour interrupted him, faying, " Sir, I am beholden to you for it- we have had a very dry feafon, and now I have hopes we fluall foon have rain, for I never faw the glafsyfc low." A Qwrt time fince a Quack Dottor was taken from his ftage at a town in Cambridgeshire, and brought before a magiflrate as a rogue and vagabond. Upon his examination he faid he was a gentleman by education and profeffion. A medical gentleman being prefent, afked him feveral quef-tions, and among others what was meant by a dijhcation ? he at firft refufed giving any anfwer, faying it was a fecret in medicine, but at length he faid it was a iiiforder i* the groin." In a hand-bill difleminated by a fon of Crifpin at the Weft end of the town, after thanking his cuftomers for their diftinguifhed patronage, he defires they will pay no attention to feveral new Ihops who originates them/elves, as feveral creditable perfons are ready to make their depoiitions th3t he is the frfi original. On Monday afternoon, about three o'clock, a fire happened at Shipftead, at a lonely farm in the parifh of Marcham, about two miles from Abingdon, occafioned by the x>verheati�g of a hayrick which had been put together too green: The hay-rick, with three others near to it, were entirely confumed ; the flames alfo communicated to a barn and ftable, which were iboh reduced to afhes, but providentially the dwelling-houfe and fome other detached buildings Were, though with difficulty, preserved. At the laft allizes for the county of SufTex a verdicL with two hundred and fifty pounds damages, was given againft a perfbn for difeharging a piftol at a lady as fhe flood at the. window in her hufband's houfe; and for violently affauking the mother of the faid lady, who is irr the 77th yeat of her agej and a female fervant of the family, by_putting a pifto'l to their,heads, at the fame time hbldirig a drawn fword in his other hand, and. threatening to blow out their brains. The Lord Chief Baron, in his charge to tne Jdry, remarked, with much feverity, on the un-manlinefs and brutality of the defendant's conduit ; which was Of fuch notoriety as neither to admit of a defence from the defendant or his Gdunfel.. The young lady at the time of the af-farik being in a ftate of advanced pregnancy, and her life; in confequence of the alarm fhe had fuftained; was defpaired of for feveral days! . .
