LONDON. Yefterday Mr. Pitt went to Wlndfor to ruy his vifit of cohdolance, and tranfael bufinefs with the The PrincefT Royal's birth-day will be kept on Wednefday in a very private manner at Windfor, on account of the recent death of her uncle, the Duke of Cumberland. The report which has been in circulation for fome days pail of the death of one of the Princes in Germany has not the leaft foundation in fact. Ifis confidently reported that the fleet will fail agaijo under Earl Howe with near fixty fail of the  line, belides frigates ; if fo, it may be faid, it is the bid appointed fleet that ever left the Britiih (horesj either for Commanders, men, or (hips.- Of thtffe, no doubt, fifteen fail of the line will be detacKed to the Weft-Indies under Lord Hood.

Letters from Berlin, of a late date, fpeak confidently of the refignation of Count Hertfberg, his Pruffiah Majefty's firft Minifter. No particular caufe is yet affigned fot this refolution; but fhoirld it happen, his Majefty will lofe an able man and a good Minifter. The accounts add, that feveral difcontents prevail among the principal officers of the army, which are not yet accounted for. The greater part of the inhabitants of the Electorate of Saxony are Proteftants. They tnink freely; and in all probability the firft feeds of a Revolution will take root in that part of Germany. Yefterday morning at eight o'clock died at his feat at Twickenham, the Moft Noble William, Duke, Marquis, and Earl ef Montrofe, Marquis and Baron of Graham, Dundaff, Kincarn, Mia-dock, and Kinabor in Scotland, and Earl and Baron Graham of Belford, in the county of Northumberland, England. His Grace married October, 1742, Lucy Manners, daughter of John, fecond Duke of Rutland, by whom (who died June 18, 1788) he had ifl'ue James, Marquis of Graham, born February 8, 1755-i-ucy, born July, 1751, and married in June 1771, to Archibald Douglas, Efq; row. Lord Douglas. His Grace is fucceeded in his titles and ellates by the Right Hon. the Marquis of Graham, his only fon, by which his Lordfhip's feat as reprefentative in the Houfe of Commons for Great Bedwin, Wilts, becomes vacant. The Yarmouth fifhery has been begun fome time, and will con inue about two months longer, after which the herrings move regularly to the mouth of the Thames, where they remain till the end of January. When the order for general mourning was fent to the printer of the Gazette, it was certainly intended that the remains of his late Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland fhould be interred to-morrow ; but as the funeral is to be graced with nava! honours, it was found impoffible to make the neceflary preparations in due time. A general mourning gives a little reft to the votaries of fafhion from the fatigues of invention. Extract of a Letter from Deal, Sept. 22. " The whole fleet, under the command of Admiral Elliott, failed this morning for Spithead. -It confifts df fourteen fhips of the line, and one frigate. " At the time they failed, the wind was very fcrimp ; and it is much more fo now, having again veered to the S. S. E. which renders it uncertain whether they will not yet put back. *' It is very uncommon for fingle fhips, bound down Channel, to leave the Downs with any wind from S. to S. E. but the attempt is not remembered ever to have been made before by a fleet of men of war. " The exigencies of the fervice upon w hich they may be bound, can only be equalled by the exertions that were ufed to leave their anchorage here. The whole fleet got under weigh with aftonifhing facility." Yefterday there was a meeting of the Governors of the Trinity-houfe, to take into confidcration the building a light-houfe on the O^vers, the erecting a Tea-mark on the Wolf-Rock, and a light-houfe on the Long-Ships. A Court of Common-Council was yefterday held at Guildhall, the Lord-Mayor, Recorder, iio Aldermen, and a great number of Commoners, being prefent. Several petitions for renewing Teafes were read, and referred, and feveral leafes were fealed. Mr. Powell made a motion, explaining the election of Mr. Silverier to be Common Serjeant, thereby doing away the objeftionable part, that of holding the fame during pleafur�v which was cna-nimoufly approved and agreed to. The Court, after fome converfation refpe&ing the licenfing of public-houfes, and a letter from Lord Sydney, when Secretary of State in the year 1787, accompanying the proclamation for the better obfervance of the Sabbath, being read, came to a refolution to recommend it to the Lord-Mayor and Aldermen, in Quarter Seflion aflem-bled, not to licenfe any public-houfes but fuch as are recommended to them by the Alderman and Common-Councilmen of each ward where fuch publican refides. Mr. Box, after repeating the utility of the London Workhoufe, moved, that a Committee be appointed to take into confideration the prefent ftate of the faid houfe, and what meafures will be moft expedient to be adopted in order to render the fame more beneficial to the city and public at large. Deputy Merry was for referring it tc the Committee for general purpofes. Mr. Domfprdand fome other Members recommended a fpecial Committee, on which fix Aldermen and 12 Commoners were appointed far fuch purpofe, A motion was made by Mr. Powell, and fe-eonded by Mr. Deputy Leeky, tkat an addition of 4.00I. por ann. be added to the Recorder's falary, to commence at Michaelmas next, which was unammijuf./ agreed to. Lord Barrymore's dramatic fete, at Wargrave, on Tuefday evening, was attended by a brilliant aflemblage of perfons of diftinftion. The performances of the evening were-The Follies of a Day, and the pantomime of Robinfon Crfife-both of which *#ere excelk�tly enacted : The noble Hod perfonated the Drunken Gardenn- in the comedy, and the Ckvjnnn the pantomime-many new tricks were introduced in the after-piece, which do credit to the-fkillandinduftry of Delpini: Mr. Stephens, who was hilUd in a duel on Monday laft, was the only furviving fon of Mr. Stephens, of the Admiralty, who has been uncommonly unfortunate in liis children, though no man is more deferving of happinefs. He had three fons-ore of whom died in India of a fever, fhortly after he arrived therer-anotherbroke Jiis thigh by a fall, and died under the cure of it- and the third was killed in a duel. A country Farrier and Cowleecb, on the weftern road, has put up a board, exprefiing his preparations for.horfes, ringing of pigs, Ac. and he adds, that he no^-fells folts, rusbub, jollup, fir-up of bucksthorn, an all uther purging drugs for Chriftians. Saturday evening Mr. Hampter, of Bedford-fture, was flopped, near Finchley, by two footpads, who robbed him of his watch and three guineas. Monday evening Mr. and Mrs. Bennett, of Morden-College, were flopped on Blackheath by a fingle highwayman, who robbed them of their watches and upwards of 3I. Wednefday night, about nine o'clock, Baron Silverhelm, of Tottenham-Court-road, was Mopped in Hanover-fquare, by three footpads, who robbed him of a gold watch, and upwards of three guineas. 1 The fame day fome thieves ftole out of the houfe of Mr. Wyatt, of Crown-ftreet, Soho, feveral articles f f plate, apparel, &c An Iriibman who was on Wedne&ay brought to the bar of the Old Bailey, and arraigned for an aflaolt, being ordered to be retnanded^ which he underftood meant the fame as being difebarged, made a very low bow, and thanked the Court; but being informed it fignified his recommitment, he turned about immediately, m&Jjeggedhis Lord-Jhifs pardon for thanking him. The Old Bailey on Wednefday prefented an example of unparalleled depravity. A young man was arraigned fur beating his father !-but even that, fhockir.g as it was, was out-done in guilt, by his hardened effrontery, in exultingly pleading -Guilty!!.' Yefterday at the Old-Bailey, five prifoners were tried and convicted of mifdemeanors. The fame day the Seflion ended, when fentence of death was paffed upon William Slaughter, Thomas Brown, alias John Brown, alias Thomas Newton, Jane Norton, and Francis Fonton ; 12 were-fetotenced to be tranfported beyond the feas for the term of feven years, 11 to be imprifonsd in NeWgate, and feven to be publicly whipped.
