The Chanceller having by accident heard of tn obfeure peifon in Yorkfliire, who had performed feveral cures in complaints -fimilar to thofe under which the Bifhop of Durham has long been lingering, has fent foj him by exprefs, that nothing may be omitted which may tend* to preferve a life of fuch importance to his numerous family. The Bifliop's complaint is pronounced to be a kind of internal cancer, from the pain of which he occafionally fuffers the molt excruciating torture. The expences attending the firft introduction to the Biftiopric of Durham are fo great, that it is well known amongft his friends, Bifhop Thur-low has not yet faved any thing for his family from his laft preferment.
