ACCORDING to letters from Lilbon* dated the 2d ult. the King of Portugal has remitted to the Dutch Merchants at Oporto the dues which they have been charg-ed with, and ordered reditu tion to be made them of what money they have paid. The concourfe of foreigners of difiin&ion at Frankfort is fo great, that T4 Englilh and Scotch Lords, feveral Italian Marquiies, fome French Chevaliers, and about 20 German Barons, have had the utmoft difficulty to procure lodgings there. By fome Tetters from Bayonne there is an , account, that five fhips are fitting out there for the cod fifhery in North America, and that the prices of wines in France were very high, ana were daily augmenting. The Danifh Eaft-India Company came to a refolution, on the 20th ult. to make a dividend of fix percent, for the year 1767, a-mounting to 36,000 rixdollars, on the Company's fund of 6,000,000 of rixdollars. Many Proprietors.in the Ealt-Jndia Company's Stock are very uneafy, left the prefer, t difputes among their Directors at home, and their Governors and Councils abroad, Ihould .have unhappy confequences, efpcci aiiy as each fide appears to be actuated by iirong re-fentment, and are equally powerful in riches and afiiuence. On Thurfday laft. the Weft-India Merchants gave an elegant entertainment at the King's-Arms Tavern in Cornhill, to Col. Dalrvmple, late Governor of Guadalupe, as an acknowledgment of the great care and attention he \hevved to the commercial intereil, while he had the command a: that iiland.

Yerterdsy five very notorious, and the fup-pofed only gang of villains who iufeft inns and ileal goods, as well as from coaches and waggons about this town, viz. FofTett, Solomons, Gough, Lewin, and Lloyd, were committed by Sir John Fielding, as alio the noted Dick Swift, their receiver.

[Price Two-pence Halfpenny.]' T0 the Editor s/Lloyd's Evening Fost. Sir, Yo U muft know, Mr. Editors- that I am no great believer of prodigies, and when I hear a tale, plaufibly related, that does not entirely tally with my reafon, I always imagine there is fome hidden myftery in it, which, if revealed, would give us abetter idea of the_ truth. Such is the cafe, with the narrative of your unfortunate fair Correfpondent E . . . . in your laft. That a Lady ihould be violated at noon-day, in her relation's houfe, when every fervant was about their occupation, feems to me a fort of a paradox, which requires a ferious folution. I ftiink, what Mrs. E .. . . confeffes relating to her note, gave her a fair opportunity of defeating his villainous defigns, even in the bud, and the threats which he, at that time, made ufe of, fufficient-ly demonftrated his wicked intent; but, perhaps, this Lady, was what the Spedator juftly termsoutrageoufly virtuous, and, by thatmeans, like many others, fell a victim to her own excefs of rhodefty.
