Their Majeilies and the Princefies, on account of the Duke of Cumberland's death, did not yet terday appear at the Chapel-Royal, Windfcr, bu: had divine fervice performed in their apartments at the Queen's Lodge, and were domefticased the whole of t!ie day. His Majefty's concern, when he heard of the Duke of Cumberland's death, demo nitrated that his fraternal virtues equalled tbofe other anriabtt qualitics for which he is fo extenfiveTy revered.

His ddmeftics, in parucuiar, actf all tbofe [ who were employed by htm, will have caufe to lament the melancholy event. The refpedful afrefHon, the heart-felt con cere, and the unremitted attendance, by which the. J conjugal virtues of the Duchefs have been diftin-gdlfhed, evejr ffnee the firft moment of the ilinefi of hfr Royal Highhefs, do her infinite honour. Official notice was given from the Lord Chatn-beHaiVs OfRci to fhut the Theatres. We underlland that about five months ago, when his complaint firft aflumed an alarming aipeft, an arrangement was made by the King of his aftairs, by which- every claim will be fettled, and fche Duchefs- Dowager is to enjoy 4000I. a year.

Royal Highnefs the Duke of CitmberUnd, on account of which the State,bfficex> will tra,.faft their, bufmefs with the King 44 private at Windfor-Lodge. The letter fent to the Prince of Wales at Brighton op Saturday morning, informing his Royal . Highnefs. of the death of his "uncle, was written,  figned, -and fealed by her Royal Highnefs the Duchefs of Cumberland's own hand. On the Prince's receiving it he Immediately ordered his port-chaife, and came poft to town, and on his arrival went to her Royal Highnefs at Cumber-land-houfe. Yellerday his Royal Highnefs the Prince of Wales and Duke of York went together to Windfor, on a vi/it cf condolance to their Majeilies and the Princefles. His Royal Highnefs the Duke of Glouceffer arrived in town yefterday from Herefordfhire, in confequence of the exprefs fent down of the death of his brother. The la(l general mourning, which was for her Royal Highnefs the Princefs Amelia, lafted only fix weeks ; but as the perfon of the prefent Royal demife was nearer in affinity to Majefty, .three months are mentioned as the probable period; the ancient cuftom of long mournings having been aboUfhed aa highly injurious to the manufacturers. "Another reafon affigned in the courtly circles for the above term is, that the refped for the departed any not interfere with the brilliancy of the Urtlt-Qay Drawing-room, in January.

And now faithfully prepared from his MS. Recipes by his Relict and Ex cutrir, the Hon. LADY HILL, at her Houfc in Curzou-Street, Bcrkcley-Sqaarc, London. THIS ESSENCE of WATER-DOCK is pre-pared from a Plant, indigenous to thia Country, called the great Water Dock, being a very pure and paritft Solution of its inner Rind, and is an a'ofolute Specific Cure for the Scurvy, ia every Stage, Condition, - and Degree of that Difeafe, and dris with the mkft perfect Innecenoc, for it cannot rcpsl; nor has it any of the dangerous Effects of Mineral Preparations, Mercury being unknown in the Competition. Whether the Scurvy be of the eruptive Kind, or latent in the Habit, this Eflence is always confident in itS-Op-nttibn and Effects. Its firft Effort is by infenfible Perfpiratio.-i, tHen-by opening the obftructcd Pores, and. giving Tallage w t'i> of-fendi'.ig Humour ; and, where the Diforder is virolunt, Nature is further affifted by a more than ordinary Difchaige of Urine. No particular Regimen or Preparation Is required by this Medicine ; it is of die vegetable Kingdain fjlely, and perfectly anfwers the old Greek Character of it, " That few Mcd':c':ne� arc more effectual, none more innocent." Kurthec, it. is pleafant, ftn-ugcherting, and reviving j .it clears the Complexion, gives Spirits, and comforts tVe Stomach. <* If any one is ill, and knows not his Diforder, let him " fufpect she Scurvy.^ Matbjolus.
