Caftle LONDON. The public may depend on the following very important intelligence. The Tre/aivney Planter, Capt. Mac Donald, failed on the 26th of July from Jamaica, and in the Gulph of Florida, while in company with the Louiiai Steele, fell in with a fleet of Spanifh fliips, of which three were regiller fhips, under convoy of two line of battle fhips, and three frigates. A gun was fired for Capt. Mac Donald to hoift out his boat, and come on board the Spanifh Commodore, which he did not comply with, Hating, that his fhip was indifferently manned, and his boats were leaky ; but it being late In the evening, he informed the Commodore that he would remain in company all night.-The Commodore on this fent his own boat, and Capt. Mac Donald was carried on board 'he Spanifh man of war. As focn as he came on board, he was ordered into a moft cruel fpecies of confinement, pra&ifed on board the; Spanifh fhips, and called the Bilboes.- He was'ftretched along on his backi between two planks of wood, and a third piece of wood ftretched acrofs his cbefl-his face expofed to a vertical fun, and in this pofture he lay for fixteen hours, and muft have fallen a victim to the torture arJ the heat, but for the humanity of fome of the crew, who occafionally eafed his torture, and gave him room to turn. During this time, an Officer and fifteen men boarded the Trelaiunn Planter, and rummaged the c.rgo, and overhauled every part of the fhip.- *�er they had made their report, he was difmiffed without any explanation of, or apology for, this outrage.-He found, that though every thing had been pdt into difbrder, ~-u:- U"A nothing had guns, Capt. Macbride, in wnTtu"�r.Jxv* yt to Ponfmouth to-morrow morning." "'"oceeds A plan is ftill in agitation to blow up the remains of the old Royal George, as the prefent fituation cf the wreck is rather dangerous, efpe-cially in an anchorage of fuch public refort as Spithead. A gentleman from London is now at Ponfmouth upon this bufinefs, acting under the fanction of Government, and entertains the moft fanguine hopes of fuccefs. The partners with Alderman Curtis in his neA' Banking-houfe are, Mr. Jordan, of the Borough, an eminent merchant in the Irifh provi-fion trade, and Mr. Alderman Skinner. There being no Court of Aldermen yefterday at Guildhall, the Mafter and Wardens of the ' Company of Bakers waited on the Lorch-Mayor at the Manfion-houfe, when his Lordfhip was pteafed to order the price of bread to be continued as before. Yefterday being the Fsaft of St. Matthew, there was an ordination held by the Right Rev. the Lord Bifhop of Rochefter, in the Abbey Church of Weftminfter; when the Rev. Mr. Wilkinfon, A. B. of Queen'i College, Oxon. ; the Rev. John Argles, of Emanuel College, Cambridge ; and the Rev. Peter Debary, A. M. Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, were admitted into the hoty order of Priefts. A Duel took place at Margate on Monday laft.-Some altercation took place between Mr. Stephens, fon of Philip Stephens, Efq; of the Admiralty, and Mr. Anderfon the Attorney, merely about the fhutting of a window. The parties met the next morning, and Mr. Anderfon being charged with applying the words " Upftart Pappy" to Mr. Stephens over-night, he declared that he was not fenfible he had made ufe of any fuch words, and he therefore would make bo apology and fired each a piftol without effecl. Mr. An derfon's fecond fhot however took fatal place. It entered the upper lip of Mr. Stephens, and penetrated to the brain : he fell, and died in-ftantly. Mr. Anderfon was taken into cuftody by the civil power, and will no doubt be committed to take his trial at the next Affizes, as the offence properly is not bailable. An intejefling caufe was tried at Chefler affizes, between Peter Bailey, gent, plaintiff, and Michael Afhmore, defendant, in which the rights of the lords of manors, as to the property of trees 1 growing in lanes, where the lands on each fide belong to freeholder's, was indifputably fettled in favour of the land-owners.

HANCOCK cannot fufficiently acknowledge his Obligations to the MUSICAL WORLD for their very liberal Patronage, in the ihort Space of Time fince he opened his Warehoufe as above : He can only fay that their Favours have for exceeded his fenfe of Defert, and that thef fhall ftimulate every Exertion towards Peiieclion in his ln-ftruments.
