Ye/terday morning his Excellency the Spanifh Ambaftador had an interview with the King at Wiudfor'Lodge. The opening of St. George's Chapel, Wind-for, which had been intended for Sunday next, is deferred, on account of the chcir not being yet fully completed. The new organ has been put up, and is highly fpoken of. 'On unquestionable authority we are enabled to fay, that the Various reports of the Duke �f Clarence having been involved in perfonal dif-putes with different officers of the fleet, are as falfe and unfounded as that of his having been fcot in a duel with one of them. Some of the officers, who have been reprefented as parties offended by bis Royal Highnefs, are thofe with whom he has always converfed, and ftill continues to converfe on terms of the greateft intimacy. " The October mails for Jamaica, New-York, the Leeward Iilands, and Britifh America, the latter of which are the laft for this feafon, are began collecting at the General Poft-OfBcc, from whence they will next week be fent cff to Falmouth. Extra3 of a Letter from Philadelphia, Aug. 21. , " Trade has been exceedingly briflc For there Jail two years. Congrefs we expeci to remove icon to this place. Many branches of manufactories ^are fet up of late in this and the New-England State's; but the very high prices allowed by the �farmers to thtir fervants in new lands, together -with the low price of land, make the workmen's ^vages employed in matvufadtures very high, and they; are continually leaving their trades to take lip the more pleafont and more agreeable occu-.patiofl of farmers. I" There have been a good mnny emigrants ifrom. Ireland, Germany, and France, this year; 'from the latter kingdom they have been very nfl-ifierous, to the amount of feveral thoufands: But 'they all go to the Southern States. *' Our College has had feveral new Profeflqrs "-added to it laft year, their funds are-good, their . library already amounts to about 10,000 volumes, a fine botanic garden has been laid out, caifiiiir-g of 10 acres. Our Profefibrs here arc i'edior.fd the belt on the Continent; no lefs than about'-90 ftudents in the medical line attended laft fittings, among whom was one from Lima, South-America, and about 10 or 12 from the French, Spanifti, and Britifh Weft-India Wands. " A Mr. Doylden from Europe has lately pur-chafed two millions of acres of land from Con- frefs ; and Mr; Scriba, a merchant in New-York, as purchafed four millions of acres, all fromCon-grefs j a Society of Gentlemen, with whom, it is faid, fome Dutch Houfes in Amfterdara are concerned, have purchafed from the States of Georgia about 15 millions of acres of land on the frontiers of that Stat*. The very higheft price paid fbr any of thefe" purchafes has been 20 cents, per acre (about lod. Britifh money), payable by inflallments at different periods, and that in Congrefs money." \ They talk at Paris of printing all their translations of the fuperier claflics unifoivnly in the ftyle and manner of their Quarto D Jphin Claf-fics.-The fuggeftion of this undertaking coming from the King himfelf, the whole is to be honoured with his affiftauce and patronage. It is generally, and with juftice, complained of the books printed in Germany, that, the paper is Very coarfe and disagreeable to the eye. This arifes from a patriotic caufe. They print on no paper which they do not fabricate themfelves; and they have hot yet attained the fkill of manufacturing paper to the degree of excellence in which it is feen in this country. The Royal vault in King Henry the "Seventh's Chapel, Weftminfter-Abbey, after the interment of the Duke of Cumberland, on Tuefday, vtas clofed the fame night. There is now only one vacancy in that repofitory of the afhes of the Princes of the Houfe of Hanover, which is on the right of his Royal Highnefs, unlefs the coffins are placed on each other, which is not yet pradifed. What pity thofe who preach patience to others, fhould ever want the influence of it themfelves!-A gentleman of rank as well in literature as in his profeflion, not long htkc paid a vifit to a friend, who is an .Attorney.- That friend, in the courfe of the evening, fuf-pecting from his clouded brow all was not well at home, and 'feeing a light in his chamber more thau half an hour after he had taken leave of the family, and was gone up to bed, peeped though the key-hole, and difcovered him on his knees before - the table, with a piftol lyin^ on it. He applied his foot to the door, and inftantly burft it open; a ferious cohverfation enfued, in which it is hoped the Man of Law convinced the Child of Misfortirnc,' that fhe ftores of Providence contain a ba'm -for every wound; and that no man, be his'fituation what it may, is abfolufely- undone but by the temerity of fuch a deli*n. Saturday clofed the great horfe fair, at Stir-bitch, near Cambridge, where the fttew of different kinds of horfes was very good. The London dealers, as ufual, were "a day before th* fair," ard picked the market. However, as taLte is a great deal in every thing, it was the opinion of many judges, they had lek the beft horfes. Derbyihire cheefe fold from 42s. to 43s. Single Gloucester from 44.S. to 47s. Doable ditto from 52s. to 56s. per cwt. Kent Hops, in Pockets, 4I. 15s. Ditto, in Bags, 4I. 8s. to 4I. 10s. Effex Hops, in Pockets, 4I. xol. to 5I. Ditto, in Bags, 4I. to 4I. 5s. Wool bore a high price. A gentleman juft returned from Ireland fays, that the wheat, bere, barley, and oats are entirely ftacked in moft parts of that country. A few fields of peas, beans, and vetches, only remain to be cut. The ears of the wheat are of more than ufual length and thicknefs; the grain full, with a delicate Ikin, the.moft certain marks of a great caft; the oats are alfo luxuriant. Thefe profpc&s, with a little further continuance of fine weather, mull aJTure the moft plentiful feafon experienced thefe feveral years, if monopoly and foreftalling do not interfere. Accounts from Kent continue to mention, that hopi though in general pretty good, rail far fhort of expectation. At the raft Canterbury market bags were from 65s. to 80s. indeed fome very few were higher, and pockets were from 80s. to S8s. The long expected conteft between Humphries and Mendoza was decided at Doncafter on Wed-nefday. , About ten o'clock Humphries came on the ftage, with Ward and Jackfon as his fecond and bottle-holder. Mendoza appeared foon after, with Johnfon and Butcher. The Duke of Hamilton and Sir Thomas Ap-preece were umpires, and they appointed Mr. Afton referee, in cafe of difpute. At twenty minutes pail ten the combatants fet to ; the odds fix to four in favour of Mendoza. _ Humphries approached his antagonist with great fpirit; and, in the firft- round, at the conclusion'or. which he knocked Mendoza down, and fell .upon him, mewed fo evident a fuperiority, that the edds changed to five .to four in his fa^ vour. �its thefecucd round, Mendoz&being utiable to defend himfelf in any other manner, .clofed, and' .'both fell; :but'Hurhph^ics.'fprafricd his knee'fo violently,! that if wiiij fuppdfed. he could not ftand up to eontinue'lhe fight, and .the -od4s "inAantty changed to-, twenty-, to one" againft bim. . :-' AV-iough fo completely aepriv'ed el the ufe of ..-pre let,, as to �elefj of wm-ning^ he; maintained \ the^ co'ntsit-. f;Ok ^ricon^uerable obflin^cy, fty morejthan an hour, daring which he was-allowed, by all uhe fighting men, to have ftiewn more game, and ftood a feverer beating than any they had ever'feen. The remonftrances of his friends being ftill ineffectual,, his fecoad and,,bpitl.e holder were obliged to yield the battle for him. We have not heard what frms were depending : but from the iffue of the battle appearing fo early to be clearly decided,- it it probable that much was not won or loft. Some converfation palled between Johnfon and Big Ben. Ben contended for a ftage of fixteen. feet,, alledging, that having witneffed Johnfon's agility in running awa^ from Perrins, he will not have the trouble of running after bim. Johnfon refufes �0 fight, bu'. oft a ftage of twenty-fear feet.--Thcs ftsurds the matter at prefent.
