Vefterday a caufe came on, in the Court of Common Pleas, Weflmin iter-Hall, before �Lord Chief Juftice Pratt, wherein Mr. Blacki-fton of Covent-GaFden was Plaintiff, and a � Gentleiran, wh is iiyled a Buck, Defendant,  for ah-affaul'tagainit'Mr; Blackiiton in his own houfe j when a verdict was given for the plaintiff, with 200I. damages. Thurfday was held, at Kingston church, in Surry, the.primary viination of the Right Rrv ' the Lord Bifhop of Winchefter. for that tijo-  cefe,when the feveral parifh officers, be! -jn-gi:�;-t� the fuid diocefe, were Iworn in, ana a c-.n-  fiderable number of Midlives and i>\-(tf�ui, , were fumr'noned to appear before his L..rd- fhip, his Commillary or Surrogate1, to exhibit their licences, purjuant to, a very ancient law  made for that purpofe. We hear that Captains Alexander Haye and Broadltreet have each obtained grants of 5000 acres of land, on the Dartmouth fide of Halifax, in Nova Scotia; on which it is faid .there are valuable coal mines chat will turn cut to large account.

Two of tnem were taken that night, and fecured in V\ eitminfier Gate-houfe ; and yeiierday the officers went in purfuit of the reit. Yeiierday a Country Farmer, charged cn oath with cnu-lly beating and maiming his wife, was brought to the New Gaol in Southward. Three of the felons, who are committed for footpad robbeiies, found means to pick the Faimer's pocket, of a confiderabFe-fum.of money in gold" and (liver, a great part of which was recovered; on a complaint, to the Keeper, the villai- s were well fecured, to prevent their being guilty of the like crime for the future.
