Letter* from Vienna fay, that though the preparations in Hungary announce the nearnefs of the coronation, many perfons think that ceremony cannot take place fo ioon on account (as they allcdge) of the difference o( opinion which dill reigns in many of the counties, both in regard to the rc-ellablilhment of certain privileges, and relative to the qudtions to be propofed to the new Sovereign previous to his coronation. The above letters add, that the precipitate armaments of England feem to caufe a lively fenfation there, though it is faid that their fole objeel is to provide againft any event w.^ich may happen, particularly againft the difpofilions of Spain. A gentleman, who has lately travelled over part of France and the Netherlands, remarks, that the molt Unking difference is obfervablc in the conducl of the French and Brabar.con Patriots. The former are firmly united i:i the caufe of true religion and equal liberty. Th- latter are actuated by the moft abject notions of bigotry and lupertlition, and are fo far from being united, that, at the time he left the country, tne moll violent animofities and jealoufies prevailed arrung the fubaltern officers, and even privates of the' army.

Yefterday was tried, before Lord Loughborough, an action to recover from the defendant a debt'of about 58I. for fuffering Mr. Ia:s}ues, a prifoner in his cuftody, to efcape, and be at large.

The other ofiicers were then re-elected, and the hall broke up. At the clofe of the poll for Weftm'infter yefterday the numbers were, Mr. Fox 1277, Lord Hood 973, Mr. Home Tooke 336.

The wheat of Suffolk an J Hertford Ihire has a good look, and is well fhot in ear; the rye had received a little damage from the violent rains, which it has recovered by the late fine weather.

Remarkable injlance of fecundity in an old woman. -The wife of a labouring man in the town of, Rickmanfworth, in Hertford (hire, zgedffty, was lately delivered of three children at one birth ! The wound received by Counfellor Perry in a late duel in Ireland, is a matter of infinite wonder, even among the faculty; the ball entered at his right wri 1, and afcending along the bone of the arm, forced its way through the under jaw-bone, and out at the upper part of the right cheek.
