The Minifters and Chiefs of the Law immediately difpatched couriers to Muley Yefed, his eldeft fon, who is called to the Throne by his birth, his military talents, and the voice of the people. He has already been proclaimed King here and at Rabat. Munich, April 25. This day died here, in her 68th year, Maria Ann Charlotte, Princefs Palatine of Sujtzback, widow of Clement Francis de Panle, Duke of Bavaria, Coufin German to the late Eletlor Maximilian Jofeph. V.ennd, May 19. A courier came exprefs to this capital-on the 17th inft. with difpatches from the Court of Berlin.-A Cabinet Council was in confequence immediately "called, and from the orders that we underftand have been fince fentto Marfhal Laudehn, it is the prevailing opinion here, that a rupture between the two powers is inevitable. General Laudohn is now at the head of the army in Moravia, and in readinefs to aft when exigencies may require. On the 14th he reviewed Wsraany, and having occafion to make the troops pafs through a number of evolutions and movements, the Prufflan troops on the borders taking it into their heads that he was marching in hoilile array into Silefia, fled with the greaidr. precipitation } a fmall body of Pruiftans on this occafion deferted, and compelled their officers to accompany them. The officers, however, on declaring jhat compulfion was .ufed by. the folaiers, had liberty to return, and moft 6f the foldiers en-11(1*1 in the Aultrian fervice. The Emprefs cf Rufiia lately comrp.ifTioned her Ara'-aflador to demand a further loan of two millions of florins of his Majelly ; which not being in his power to comply with, or perhaps thinking that he mould have occafion for all the fupplies he could raife in the event of^a war with his Pruflian Majelfy,. he has been obliged, on one ef thefe accounts, to refufe the requeft of the Emprefs. As to the war with the Turks, we ate preparing for a vigorous campaign. The Prince of Co-bourg is at the head of the army appointed to adt againft Widin ; and he has- already caufed temporary bridges to be conftrudted over the Danube and 'I imock, to keep open the communication with Wallachia; Thirty-two veflels have been difpatched by the commander in chief at Belgrade, laden with artillery and ammunition, to affift in this undertaking; On the fide of Poland, affairs have the appearance of war; a large detachment of the Prince of Wald'eck's HuiTars has been fent to Saflbw to watch the Poles, and bring the earlieft intelligence of their motions. They are already in con-iiderable force irt the neighbourhood of Brody, which is in fome danger on that account. Orders have, therefore, been given to General Hulten, to take all poifible means to prevent the fudden capture of that city. COUNTRY NEWS. Reading, June 8. On Wednefday kit an in-quiiition was held at the parifh of Bradfield, by a very refpe&able Jury, before Mr. Olhorn, one of his Majefty's Coroners for this county, on view of the body of William Lailey, a young man about twenty years of age, who, on the preceding Friday evening, had been fo unfortunate as to receive a violent flab with a large fharp-pointed clafp-knife, from John Lloyd, of Eucklebury, in this county. The blade of the knife penetrated to the handle, at leall four inches deep, into the belly of the poor young man. He was ferving a Company of people with beer at the houfe of his father, the lign ef the Bear and Ragged Staff, near Stanford, and the room being hot, was Handing with his coat and waiftcoat unbuttoned, with a glafs in one hand, and a pitcher in the other, when the above-mentioned Lloyd, without the leaft provocation, or even the lhadow of a reafon for fo *loing, privately took the knife from his pocket, and inni&ed the mortal wound. Dr. Withers and Mr. Sain/bury attended very foon after, but without the leaft hope of his recovery ; however, he languifhed three days, with part of a divided inteftine hanging out of the wound. Llcyd has a wife and fix children to bemoan this, perhaps, unprecedented ad. The Jury brought i� a verdift of wilful murder ; and Lloyd was, in confequence, by the Coroner's warrant, committed to our gaol to take his trial at the enfuing aflizes. SHIP-NEWS. Deal, June 2.

The waiftcoat of each party was covered with oil-cloth, that the mark of each hit might be eafier effaced. The fpace to receive the thrufls was marked round by a ribband. After faluting the company, and thr.ufting carte and tierce for a few moments, the affault began. St. George gave the two firfl hits. The third hit was given by Goddard. At the conclufion, the umpires declared the hits to be three and three.
