Lloyd's Evening Post (Newspaper) - March 5, 1764, London, Middlesex S EVENING" Vol. XIV.] From MONDAY, March 5, to WEDNESDAY, March 7, 1764. [Numb. 103S. TUESDAY, March 6. LONDON. MONG the_ many machines lately invented for ihe difcovery of the Longitude, Mr. Henry Schultz, a celebrated mechanic in Denmark, has contrived a '*�0v^ clock, by means of which &&$Wl& ;minicus Tecum, Capt. Markley, from London to Hamburgh, which was thought to have been loft in tne violent ftorm of tne i.'ith of January, is, by the laft letters from Norway, fate arrived in that kingdom- They write fr.-m Ipfwich, that a large Swe-difli fhip, laden with iron and deals, came afhore on Tuefday laft on Burnham Flatts, where the crew cook to their boats and left her. It being flood-tide, the floated at high-water and fwain into Lynn Well,_ where ihe lies funk in 7 fathom water. It is remarkable, that this is the fourth Swedifh fhip that has been loft on that coaft within thefe two months, owing to miftakes in the fhip's reckoning. She proves to be the Suffia Britannia Albertene, Nicholas Nicholfon, Mailer, from Gottenburg, bound for Liverpool, laden vvith iron. Laft Sunday fe'nnight the Anna Maria, of Rotterdam, burthen 2.00 tons, Jan Verboom, Matter, from Hamburgh toBourdeaux, ftruck on Hafborough Sand: the Mailer and eight men continued on board till Monday morning, when the fhip having nine feet water in the hold, they took to their boat and got afhore at Haiborough. The cargo is loft, which con-fifted of copper, iron, tin, lead, &c. A fine new Court-houfe is built at Maid-ftone in Kent, for holding the aflizes for the county, and doing the other public bufinefs at the Quarter Seffions, &c. The King has been pleafed to grant a par-' don to William Taylor, James Brown, Thomas Bryant, James Graves, and James Shearer, who were condemned, at laft" Kent affize, for divers felonies and robberies, on condition of their being tranfported for 14 years. Suuday night John Maddox, Richard Silverier, James Morris* John Dorcy, Mat. Wilk-infon, Jofeph Verdon, James Seiby, William Sims, and Robert Vine, all felons, endeavoured to make their efcape out of the county goal of Surry, by breaking up a new floor in the Lower Ward, and working through the main wall under ground, into the pafiage to the door of the vvomens prifon ; but upon finding that door fecured, they raifed one upon another's fhoulders, and got over the wall into the womens yard, which diib rbed the dogs and Keeper's man, who had but jufl come from round the goal to go back again, and found the breach in the pafiage, who alarmed the Turnkey at the Lodge, very luckily for him, for their intent, as they 01 n-feffed, was to murder him, and make a pufh at the Lodge, as having loll the duffel they chiefly worked with to get through the lower wall. This attempt wou.d be thought almoit impefiible to get to fuch a head, efpeeially as the ringleader, Maddox, had a collar on, which partly confined his hands, as well as his neck, for attempting to break out the 19th of February hit, as alfo on the firft day he was removed from Newgate, for an attempt there. They are now kept ail chained together, to prevent any further mifchief,. as they have the impudence and hardinefs to , openly threaten. When they found their i fcheme was frufiated, of killing the man, &c. .5 above,- they pulled a door off ihe hinges, [Price Two-pence Halfpenny.]- and got back again over the wall into the pafiage, and fo into the Ward, except Wil-kinfori, who got faftened, and ceuld not get in or out, until affilted. On Thurfday laft Harvey Afton, Efq; Co-; roner of the county of jSurry, fummoned a Jury to enquire into the death of an infant: that was found murdered at Croydon, and it appearing that the mother of it was the murderer, the Jury found it fo, and the woman was committed to the county gaol, but being in a very weak condition, Ihe is at prefent kept under a guard till the can be brought to ' prifon. _ The VOICE of FREEDOM. Verfes wrote in the Tear 1764. THE midnight bell had toll'd from far,. And blacknefs cloath'd the iky, My fteps to guide no twinkling ftar Its radiance fhot from high. Methought, (as wrapt in vifion fvveef). I fought for Wifdom's bower, My Freedom's Genius once to greet, Released from Tyrant's power. Fair Hampden's ghoil I thought I faw, - Slow, filent,- flitting by, And Sidney next, with felemn awe, Who nobly dar'd to die. Next ftalk'd the {hades of Worthies old,  Now regifter'd by fame, Who for their country once were bolij. And eterniz'd their name. Oppreflion's rod they bravely fcorn'd, Full obftinately juft_: With noble deed? their lives adorn'd, And fteddy to their truft. My heart beat joys unknown before, At profpec~t of the fight; The Tyrant's chain 1 felt no more-r- Corruption took her flight. All hail! I cry'd, to Freedom's land J - (The noife it piercrd my foul) Let vengeful curies reach that bandy^ That does my wifh controul. -Oh let their race, as they deferve,- Feel arbitrary fway, And flaviih Slavery through each nerve, ~ Smart, tingling, urge its way. Then fuffer not the wretch to dwell In Freedom's happy clime- ^ " The man his Country^lares^k) fell,-. Shall ftink to after-timer**^ The thought prophetic held my mind-In vifionary fear; I curs'd the men that had combin'd-- To rob us of what's " Deab.." When, lor unlike as vifions are, I woke and foun'd it true, But few that watch for Britain's care,-But many that undo. , Worcestershire Philander.
