On Saturday their Majefties, their Royal High-nefles the PrincefTes Royal and Augufta, Prince of Wales; Dukes of York, GloUcefter and Cumberland, and his Royal Highnefs Prirrtfe William of Gloucefter, were on the race-ground at Afcot-Heath. Yefterday noon their Majefties and the Prin-ceftes attended divine fervlce in the private Cha-peT at Windfor, and in the evening the Royal Family appeared on the Terrace. The public days at St. Jarrtes's this week are a Levee on WeJnefday, a Drawing-room on Thursday, and another Levee on Friday next. Yefterday, at one o'clock, a Council was held at the Duke of Leeds's Office* Whitehall, which was attended by the Lord Chancellor, Lord President, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Duke of Richmond, two Secretaries of State, and the Earl of Chatham. At Four o'clock the Council broke up,. when the refuh was fent to the King at Windfor. The Emperor of Morocco did not make a general maffacre of the Jews. He delivered over their effects to pillage ; and that their race might no longer be diftinft, he ordered his foldiery to violate their wives and daughters. A Jew of the name of Atal, the favourite of the late Emperor, he condemned to lofe his arms and legs, and then to be thrown into the fire. After all, fays our correfpondent, the reign of Muli El Zezed has begun more moderately than that of his august and respectable father. The poor Vice-Conful of Spain, at Morocco, was tied to the tail of a wild afs, which, with this poor miferable man A his heels, was hunted till he became furious j and from vthis fituation the Conful was taken, only to be hanged. The Emperor faid, it was not conhftent with the etiquette of his Court to hang him in effigy. His Swedilh Majefty .on all occafions expofes himfelf to the dangers of the battle. In the late engagement with the Ruffians he was for three hours in a firiall floop expofed in the centre of the line to the hotteft fire of the enemy. The Swedes, animated by the prefence of their King, behaved with the greateft intrepidity. A plot to effect, a revolution in the kingdom of Naples is faid to have been lately difcovered there, by the information of one of the perfons concerned. A grotto was pointed outbji him, where 2000 mufquets and other military weapons were difcovered. A letter from Kingfton, in the Weft-Indies, ftates, that a Spanifh frigate had arrived at St. Andrew, Corn-Ifland, on the fide of the Muf-quito-ihore, which gave notice-" to all the Englifti refidents there; to quit that part before the 25th of April (laft) on pain of imprifonment and confifcation of property." The Grand Marftial of Lithuania died at Warfaw, on the 23d ult. aged 78 years. Count Potocki, the upper Marftial of the Court, it is thoiight, will be appointed his fucceffor. On Sunday, the fixth inftant, a duel took place in the vicinity of Dublin, between the Right Honourable LordM- ; and CounfellorB-r. The latter Gentleman received his Lordlhip's fire, and the ball ftruck the butt end of his pif-tol, and rebounded with fuch force againft his breaft,; that he daggered a little, and was carried off the field by thef^fecpnd*. * He returned fooa after, but too week to be able to return his an-tagonift's fire. Lord M*-- exprefled great un-eaftnefs at his fituation. The quarrel originated in the Counfellor's indulging himfelf with rather too -much warmth en a late trial in one of the Courts of Law* The Lamp given by Prior to Lord Oxford, and placed by the, latter in a Temple dedicated to Venus, was faid by Greenwood on Thurfday for twenty-fix pounds. It belonged firft to Cardinal Mazarin, then to Colbert, and afterwards to his fon Count Seqnilar, of whom Prior pur* chafed it for 400 guineas. His Excellency the Lord Lieutei^Mit.awd Privy Council of Ireland, after he&riog th� arguments of both parties on ,the latej.diifpu^ea election to the >Mayoft�jtV,'pharr of ftublini have direiled them u> pVoceedito a neHv,edition. Saturday, ajbpjj^e' o'clocfcy Mr* Grojan, Deputy High Bail^B^Weftininfter, attended by the high Conftabl^ wc; gave notice at Charing Crofs, a�d feveral other places, that the election for the city afvWeflmi�fter would commence on Wednef-4ay next. A queftion of great importance was on 8atur" day folemnly argued and (determined in the Court of King's Bench. The queftion was, " Whether an arreft can be Regally made within the verge of the. Palace at Weftminfter, without leave of the Board cf .Greencloth ?" Mr. Eail prbdiiced innumerable authorities to prove, that this privilege- was as old as the Monarchy of England, arid was a part of the cor.�  mon law of theiandj It was a prerogative belonging to the Riiigand-to make arrelb^within this ancient liberty^ was an infringement of the King's prerogative ; and, though the arreft icfelf was legal, the perfon who made it committed a contempt upon the Crown, and was liable to a profecution by indictment. After Mr. Wood was heard on the other fide* the Court faid; that the Crown had difpenfed with the privilege in queftion, by the A6t which eftabliftied the Palace Court, and that the Board of Green Cloth was intended only to be applied to for leave to arreft, when the defendant was a fervant of the King's houihold ; that Board being inftitutedfor the purpofs of taking care of his Majefty's houihold. An arreft therefore might be made within the Palace, Court, and no indictment could be maintained againft the officer for making it. The Eagle, Brown, from Charles-Town to Falmouth, is loft at Scilly ; the people faved. Extract of a Letter from Shrew/bury, June u.
