Lloyd's Evening Post (Newspaper) - January 20, 1764, London, Middlesex S E V I N G P O S T. Vol. XFV\] From FRIDAY. January 20, to MONDAY, January 23, 1764. [Numb. 1019. . SATURDAY, January 21. ! LONDON.. TheArret lately iffued by the Parliament e/"Tou~ louk-againfi the Duke of FitzAjames being of ajingular nature, the following is a tranjla-timtfiti. Bee. ii, 1763. 'HE Court, all the Chambers being afiembled, the verhal proceffes of the 13 th, 15th, and 16th of September laftj.andlhe^th of the prefent month, being read, the King's Counfel fent for, heard, and withdrawn. " Considering jthe re-* peated outrages, and the unheard-of violences, .which the Duke of Fitz-fames, in contempt of the oath taken by him in the Court of Peers of France, has been guilty of, againii the Sovereign Jultice of the King, by the abufe he has made both of the. name and power of the faid Lord the King, namely, in furround-ing by military men the fan&uary of the laws, menacing the Minifters of Justice even in the temple ot Juftice, where the royal Majefty habitually reiides ; and adding artifice to violence, in defpair of Overcoming the firmnefs and fidelity of the-Court, he undertook, by his fole authority, to drive fucceffively from it all the Members thereof. In that, by open force, and preparing himfelf for greater ex-ceffes, he made an attempt upon the liberty of two Members of the faid- Court; and that three days after, the Palace [lb they call the Courts of Parliament in France] being for the fecond time inverted by troops, with orders to Forbid the Magiftrates entrance, he did not fear to pretend orders from the faid Lord the King, very incorififtent' with his juftice, and injurious to the "lory of his reign, and ren- -| dered himfelf guilty of treafon in the^ fecond degree, in c'aufing to be arretted- by force and ariris, and by an unprecedented attempt, all the officers of the faid Courtand that to make Aire of a forced execution of illegal orders, he exercifed upon them incredible vexations, the bare recital of which (hocks humanity, .and the remembrance of it will be eternally odious to the nation, vvhilil by io-.difcreet precautions, more capable of folli-citing than preventing tumults, he ftrove to realize, in the minds of the moft fubmiffive arid Toyal people, the vain phantom of a revolt, ever alarming to Magiftrates, even when there-irno room to f.~ar it. > " fli that having proceeded to the utmoft �cceffes of audacity and delinquency, forgetting his quality of fubjecT:, he dared to fpeak like a Sovereign to the Members of the Court, put their liberty under, frantic conditions, ' making it depend on the impunity of fo ma-.ny afts of violence ; and at lail, crowning"all his arbitrary proceedings with exacting from loyal Magiftrates, as anon-equivocal ajjurance �of their Jubmiffionjo the King, the acceptance of the fhameful Treaty he propcled to them. "The faid Court, further confidering the ?neceffity of avenging the prefent time, and providing foi- the.fafety of .future ages, by a .memorable example that may. be.fatisfa&ory to the.honour.of the Throne, to:the glory of the Monarch, to the,authority of thetaws, to ihe Wy e� the Magiilracy, in the room of the Earl of Holderneffe, loft. . Notice is given at the Poft-office that a m ait will be difpatched from, thence ferNew-Yorki &c. on Saturday the nth of February, to go by the Pitt packet, Capt. Goddard. Two houfes in Pall-Mall, adjoining to Cbarlton-Houfe, are taking down, for enlarging and making more eommodious the courtyard of that houfe. His Majefty has been pleafed to confer, the dignity of a Baronet of this kingdom on Henry Moore, Efq; late Governor of the ifland of Jamaica, and to his heirs male. Daniel Ponton, Efq; is chofen Chairman of the Surry SefJion in the Borough, in the room of Sir William. Richardfon, Knt. who has re-figned. A Bill of Indictment has been found by the Grand Jury agaihft two Porters now in cufto-dy on account of the lofs of the trunk from the Cuftom-hpufe-key laft Chriltmas eve; their trial was poftponpd till next feiiions, oh account of the abfence of a principal witneis in behalf of lie profecntion. On. Tueiday-James Dodfon, a Meal Porter, was fo terribly fqueezed, in Thames-ftreet, between two loaided carts, that he died the next day at his.houfe in Eaft-Smithfielii;' Thurfday night a Gentleman attending ifig funeral of Mi-.

To the Editor of Lloyd's Evening Post* Si r> , MANY complaints have been made of , late with refpetl to the Monopoly that has of late years been carried On among thj> great Coal-dealers, by means of which, this necefTary of life is every winter raifed'^tp: a very high'price upon the induftriou^'poor.. To remove this evil will, perhaps, benotafy matter; yet I fhall venture a fainton-the'fub-jeft. It is well known there are many different forts of Coal come to the port of London j every one of which forts would, if the trade was free and open, bear a nroporribnate price in the Pool. Some of thefe Coals are of' a very indifferent quality; others, on..jhejeoh-trary, a� very-good; and there.are inte^ne-diatE forts.
