Plymouth April 8. 'HIS day arrived the John and Philip for Leghorn, and feveral other veffels, but it blows fo hard that we cannot get their names. Yefterday failed the Bur-ford man of war for Cork, where flie is to take troops on board for the Weft-Indies. This day failed for Cork, and put back again by contrary winds, the Fame and Cornwall men of war. LONDON. On Tuefday night the Right Hon. the Earl of Sandwich arrived in town from Cambridge; it is faid, a new election of aHigh Steward for that place will fpon come on, the late election being declared void. Yefterday the Right Hon. the Earl of II-chefter and family let but from their houfe in Burlington-ftreet, for their feat in Sorrierfet-ihire. Yefterday Dr. Bufby*s annual charity feaft was held at John Merrift's, Efq; in Dean's-Yard, Weftminfter. There were prefent the Earls of Winchelfea and Aylesfordj the Lord Bifhop of Gloueefter, Dr. Markham^ &c. when the Rev. Mr. Inchliffe was appointed Truftee to the faid charity, in the ropm of Dr. Markham, who refigned. t On Saturday laft a very valuable feizure wfir made by Mr. Trott, one of the officers bfBts Majefb/s Cu'ftoms, of a very large book of patterns of French-wrought filks of all forts, from 5s. per yard to 5I. and upwards; containing feveral thoufand patterns, irikhe hands of fome French, agents, which had for fome time been-privately carried about among the Mercers, and other dealers in the ftlk trade, to engage them to become purchafers of the pieces; who, it is hoped, will be, effectually profecuted according to law; and that thefe patterns {hall be preserved, by thofe who have the power, for the benefit of our own iilk manufacture, and that no application will be available to have them delivered up or restored to fuch French emifTaries, or their abettors, fo injurious to the iilk manufactures of our own country, threatened with deftruction by fuch illicit practices. A plan for building a new Lazaret, for the reception of goods and merchandize brought from infefted places, has been prefented. to his Majffty. and approved of; and we hear that it will be erected on Chedney-hill, near Standgate-Creek. Yefterday a number of prifohers for debt were difcharged out of the city prifons, by Sir Nathanael Nafh and Sir John Cartwright, late Sheriffs of London. Yefterday, about twelve o'clock at noon, Mr, Smith, who keeps the Nun-head, near Peckham, in Surry, was robbed in Lock-fields, in Surry, by two men dreffed like (ailors. The one caught him by the throat, faying, "Hum, hum, if you fpeak or look back I'll knock out your brains;" and then rifled his pockets, and took about ics. his watch, a handkerchief with a fowl therein, and fome feed-peas; whilft the other took a pair of filyer buckles out cf his ihoes: tLey afterwards returned him the handkerchief with the fowl therein, and threw the peas on the grafs, charging him hot to look back; but Mr. Smith raifed-a hue and cry, and being immediatelypurfued, one of them was taken near the Dog and Duck in St. George's Fields, and the other was found concealed in an out-houfe at New-ington, where the watch was found that they took from Mr. Smith. They were carried before William Clarke, Efq; and by him committed to the New Gaol, Southwark, by the names of Matthew Wilkinfon and William Curtis. They are both old offenders; and one was a fhort time fince an evidence. Yefterday a Carman carelefsly backing his cart near the Old Swan, it fell into theThames, and falling upon a boat, in which was a Waterman, he had his thigh broke, and was o-therwife much hurt: he was carried to St. Thomas's hofpital. The boat was fmafhed to pieces. ^___________ A Narrative of what pa/fed on the Outjide of the Senate Houfe in Cambridge, on March the 2,0th, &c. ON the day of election, all the Fellow-Commoners of one of our moft confider-able Colleges (in which number were included the rifing hopes of many of the beft and wealthier families in the kingdom) voluntarily met together, in order to attend in a body, what, by tome extraordinary meafures of the M-r- r, was in that College the minority in favour of Lord H. as far as the Senate Houfe, wifhing they could have followed them within doors, and given them there their votes and fuppoit. Here, at the fame time, was aiTem-bled almoft the whole body of Undergraduates throughout the Univerfity, waiting with the utmoft impatience the decifion of an affair, in which they fhewed themfelves fuffi-ciently interefted; for their eagernefs in clinging about the doors, windows, &c. may more cafily be imagined than exprefled. One circumftance of their conduct, whilft they itood here, deferves particularly to be-mentioned. Having heard in the morning, that there had been a pretty free circulation of Bank bills (blufti, ye Noble and Reverend Abettors of fuch practices!) amongft the friends of one of the Candidates, it was with feme difficulty they could be perfuaded in the afternoon to fuffer any notes at all to be carried by fervants, &c. into the Senate Houfe, for fear of any mifchievous contents that might be in them! After having fhewn by this their attachment to Lord H.'s intereft during the time of voting, when the Congregation broke up,'they proclaimed their, fentiments iiill more fully, by following, with their w^rmeft applaufes,, thofe whom they gueffed to be his friends; andexpreffing, by-hiffes, every other mark of contempt, their diflike of fuch as were known to be of the contrary party ; many of whom they forced to hang their confeious heads, abafhed as it were at this teftimony borne by their pupils to better principles, than they thought proper to avow ! A certain Officer, who made no inconfider-able figure towards the conclufibn of the late war, and whofe banners we have hung up as tokens amongft us, was fo affected with this part of thtir behaviour, that he could not, it is faid, help obferving to a Noble Perfonage [Price TwJ-pence Halfpenny.] who flood next him, ' My Lord,-we muft ge(f ' out of this place as faft as we can, or we ' Jhall Iofe all our popularity.' When the Senate Houfe was cleared of the M- A.'s, &c. the younger part of the Uni-verfity, as if diflatisfied with the imperfect bufinefs of the day, all rufhed in ; and proceeding immediately to an election of their own, they very fpeedily returned, with only three dhTentient voices, Lord H. duly elected; and in witnefs of this their act left an inftru-ment in due form, fignifying what they had done, in the V. C.'s chair. To fhew too that their fentiments have not fince been changed, upon a vifit, which a certain Right Honourable lately thought fit to pay us (to teftify, it is fuppofed, his grateful /enfe of the many unbougbi, unforced fa+ vours he had received) the fame fpirited actors' prepared an (ffigyr, which they fufpended, in the Tyburn fafnion, acrofs the larnp-irdii over the door of the chambers, where if was-expected he would be received. And to lull his Lordfhip to more agreeable {lumbers, they contrived, during the former part of the riig'hV, to keep up a kind of artificial echo of fweet founds, by placing themfelves in different corners of the quadrangle, and calling out firft from one quarter, then from-another, the name of Lord H. which at proper inter*, vals was repeated from the others; andthett fome of the pasty,, had their cue to mention aioud the name jaf another Candidate; upon which they all joined in full chorus, D'cwtt with your Twitchers, no Twitcheri! The next day, to compleat their refpect,-having learnt that his Lordfliip was to-dine in their Hall, they all, by common cenfent, agreed toftay away; out of modeft diffidence 'no doubt, judging themfelves improper company for fuch great characters! and leaving their Ccmmon.rimQ&king on empty tables, to which none had the courage or ftomach to fit down, fave one, a diftant relation of acertaia, northern Baronet'.-If P-s have feelings, like ordinary men,, muft i´┐Żot fuch things/galfc thernr , -  , . How far .the particular methods,they have taken of fhewing their fentiments ariay; be Eroper, muft be left to others to determine j ut fo far as they have meant;tQ fhevtrkheir high fenfe of worth and merit, they certainly deferve our hearty commendations'; and it' is on that account that the knowledge ofthefe facts is communicated to the public, by Cambridge, Yours,&c.
