E are well affured, that a ^ very honourable Gentle-r-t man, lately difmiffed a high office in this kingdom, be- ^ft fore his departure made a Egg^^jsg^^'^ declaration to fome of his -,|^^^^^^^ friends and acquaintances WTC% here to the following effect - ^^^v-.^ That he was foQntQ bejif .mifled an office, in which he was for fome time jiaft but a cypher; but that he would raife a tduft that would probably offend the eyes of "feine great men. That as foon as he got to London, he would go to Almack's ana join with the-party in that houfe, and fpeak him-'fsU again into place ; of which he could not fail, as his knowledge of the fecrets of two 'great Vice Kings muft make him of confider-;jtfole cohfequence to the antimi;>ifterial party.

Sir, S I am a great friend to the Ladies, 'it is always a fatisfaftion to me to cpmmu-nicate any thing that can be of ufe to them, or give them pleafure New as I. know that moll Ladies are beft pleated when they look handfomeil, pray tell the dear fex that a female friend of mine has a fecret which adds a great lultre to. her beauty ; and as Ibave by accident, it matters not how, difcovered it, I am determined it fhall no lorjger remain a fecret." Know then, ye anxious Fair, that fhe waihes her face and hands morning and evening with new milk, in which is fqueezed the juice of �. kmon. The effeft of this may eafily Be known on trial j innocent itcannot but be - Recommend it therefore to the Ladies. Yours, &c. [Price Two-pence Halfpenny.) To the Editor of Lloyd's Evening Post. Sir, ONE of ydur Corrcfpondents, in your Paper of June 4-6, gives a linking inilance of difagreement in the Reviews, concerning Churchill's Poem> of the Candidate : but this extreme oppofition in critical fentiments of books, is not at all uncommon with "the^e writers; and from fuchglaring example's, of contrariety in opinion, what ought the world to judge of their integrity and ability, which is blind enough, in many Cafes, t-> pin its own opinion to their fleevts ? It is matter of .more aftonilhment, that their judgments coincide better, efpecially as the chief manufacturers of thefe monthly Works are fcttlers �-mong us from a northern country, remarkable, even to a proverb, for friend/hip arid harmony with one another, however disagreeing it may be with others. 1 he ientehce paf-ied on Churchill's excellent piece, by the Monthly, betrays as much fervilny of tempt)*, as incapacity of judgment; and die name of Libel given to it,will at once condemn the belt writings of both ancients and modems in the way of fotire. Juvenal and Horace, Boilea,u and Wpe, are alike libellers, according io them. Their peculiar tendernefb for not giving any extract (left they ihould commit a breach of good nature, or good manners) is more Angular,' as they feldom have any fuch nice feeling or foft bowels for the productions ofother men, of wl.ofe work* they fo often give themoftinfulting,ilJ-natured,andunn�aniii;riy character, and without any provocation, EK*je, ly in:the fovereign rightot Critics. Arid ii) this particular province, which they have a>-fumed to themfelves, they have committed many virulent libels, if ill-nature, and ill-manners, if petulant wit and the freeft ufe of derifi.;n againft the fame or name of Authors', conftimte any j>art of that vagu'e ?nd undefined thing called a libel.. The Critical He-view has given judgment in favour of the piece fo condemned by the-Monthly": Where then is the tafte and feill of the other? He fpeaks of Churchill much to his honour, as a writer, and in no way to hh dilgrace, as a, libeller. As your Correfpondent jullly obferves, trie comparing of Reviews with Reviews, wrjald make a laughable fufejeft; foit wouldj a^ld have, perhaps, another good;effecVropen' the ey. s of the world, and deliver it from that new form _0f tyranny ^nd delpotiuh of late introduced in to the Republi t of Letters. In regard to the remark which, the Critical Review makes in,the introduciicn to the Letter to George Grenville, jt may be a good compliment: at.Court,, tho'^it. be falie, .and betrays eith'er'igiiorance oi hiftdcyy or wilful defign of flaUery : For it is not'tfe firft reign ever knqwn, in which wit, ftarning,: reafon* ing, and literary accompliftmenb arealrnoft entirely on the fide of gbveriiinent i 'ISfiHis ,,,,u 1-' -- ---- ticular, as well as thofe of learning, wS almtjlenwu, on the fide that could and did give them the beft price for their wit,and their learning./I ne lervility of\ the leaded, in general, is too clear R> every .impartial ob^ ierver cf men, tho' a few inftaaces of the coa- ;
