ESTERDAY, during the time of the execution of Thomas Ulher, and within fight of the gallows, a highwayman, well mounted, ftopt two Ladies in a poft-chaife on Durdham-Down/and robbed them of* five'giiineas and a gold watch; after which he had the impudence to come through the turnpike, near the gallows, and down Mill-Hill, in the midft of fome thoufand fpectators. Several perfons immediately pu.rfuing him he was taken at the New. Paffage, where he was waiting to pafs over. L O N D O N. " Yefterday the following Captains took leave �of the Court of Directbrs of the Eaft-India Company, viz. Capt. Newman Mattack, of the Beckingham ; Capt. Burnet Abercrqmbie, of the Prince of Wales ; Capt. Mills, of the Kent, (in which Lord Clive goes to Bengal.;) Capt. William Richardfon, of the Solebay;, and Capt. George Calbreath, of the Lord An-; �fon. , Lord Clive was yefterday feveral hours at the Eaft-India Houfe "ivith the Directors, as; were alfo a great many officers who are to go; with his Lordfhip to the Eaft-Indies. The 28th ult. a iloop called the Triton, of Tinmouth, Piddefley, Matter, from Cork "to Rotterdam, ran afhore at Kimeridge in the, ifle of Purbeck, and is not yet got off. Her lading confifted of iooo barrels of butter, and' U)^dsof^aUow^whichare landed and^epo^ Office^oftheCuftoms^ 'T ^ '� the-----_.;_ qualify themfelveS for their xe^ftiye employ4 nients undej* the Governtti^t/ � .

We hear from Taunton, that the trade of that place is entirely at a ftand, owing to .fome of the matters having endeavoured to lower the wages of their journeymen. Yefterday a large quantity of prohibited and-other goods, feizcd by the officers belonging to the Cuttom-houfe and Excife, were condemned at the Exchequer-Bar, Weftmin-fter, as legal feizures. O a Tuefday evening, about fix o'clock, a 'lire broke out at a houfe that is building in 'Quejn-rtreet, Cavendifti-fquare, which-cbn^. Twnsflifcoft �art of the jnfide ofthehbufe before it could perexringuafhed; but happily by theftfength of the party-walls theflameswere prevented from communicating to any other houf^.

It /is faid to be occafioned tot \e workmen leaving fome pitch on a fire> . wnjci boiled over; - T9 /^Editor ^Lloyd's Evening Post. v Sir, THE Monthly Reviewers (article 8 and 13 of the laft Review) have done great injuftice to two very interefting performances : I fay interefting, not only for that myfelf have benefited by them, but becaufe I am perfuaded, many, who labour under the fame predicament of doubt and uncertainty that myfelf did, touching many moft effential truths, may, by the fame means, reap the like fatisfactory advantages. It fhould feem as ii" thefe writers were determined to quafli, br,_ at leaft-wife, difcoun-tenance this riling genius, left from the excellence and fublimuy of his productions, the generality of readers Jhould derive too exalted notions, to relifh the monthly trifles they im-pofe on the public, as the undoubted ftandard of literary conduct; for it cannot be fuppofed that ignorance could be the caufe of their pronouncing the Conciliator an unintelligible rhapfedy, as I am confident) than which nothing will more readily appear falie to every unprejudiced, intelligent reader. But, indeed, thofewho have read the preface to the Hint, (wherein, if I miftakenot, the Reviewers have.' nd fmall ihare of feeling) do eafily perceive'another very cogent reafon of their moft unjuft. cenfure: For, to touch the pride of Pedants,' or charge the ignorant with want of underftanding, it were in vain,, from fuch quarters,' to expect either good manners, mercy, or truth. I apprehend, Mr. Editor, the manifeft partiality of the prefent Reviews is great encouragement for one, that would fupport the fiticteft impartiality, to take place; wherein' the writers, by lioWing,up |ta.mtfroar. as well of beauty as^ 4ero^^"^uldt:encpurage, as well as corre^'^e^^^^g^.'of'genjlas; and not (as _ the cafe no�'is|_ with one mercilefs . blaft, .nip.it in the Mid, in order to, difplay a 4 wi^cifin. 1 am o$opihipn, no nian has a fright to call in queftioix, much lefs traduce, ^another's labours, except,by impartially fub-?jftituting what ma^bje thought nearer to approach the truth ;"|^fc�#atibever participates Ndf arfogance or fatimfro, is only confident with the narrow confsp'tions of petulant witlings, and'will ever e productive, in the eye of real underftanding of pity for its author and the abufe of rna|fcind.

[Price Two-pence Halfpenny.] To the Editor, of Lloyd's EvenikoPost� Sir, . _ ONE would really imagine that an infatuation prevailed amongft the inhabitants of this Iflancl, who, notwithftanding the repeated advices they receive from lo many parts of Europe of the.fcarcity of Corn there, and the mifenes the inhabitants of thofeplaces fuffer for wantof it, ftill continue to export the Corn of this kingdom from every port of it, in fuch vaft quantities, thatihpuld our ne^t harveft prove bad, which we have too much reafon to fear, considering what dreadful floods and inundations we had in the winter, we may poffibly, (in cafe an immediate.ftop is not put to any further exportation) by endeavouring to relieve the want of odiers, be in-' volved ouffelves in the fame calamities they now feel: it is therefore to be hoped that thofe, whofe province it is, will take effectual meafures to prevent any farther exportatloii for the prefent; for as this calamity is riot partial, or confined tq one particular cpuntry, but extends thro' the greateft part of Europe, Ihould we once part frQm the Corn of pur own kingdom, there are none of our neighbour? who are capable of relieving our iicceflities, but we muft confequen^y feel the effects of oiir folly, and irf all probability be inflicted with all the horrors of famine, and which we fhull then too late repent.. lam, Sir, &c. W.J, � To /^Editor of Lloyd's EvenisgPost. Sir, Your, inferring the. following will oblige your humble fervant, h. Hi TO ceKbrate God's holy name My grateful heart I will prepare, To all the world his praife proclaim, His boundlefs loVe to all declare. Trahfported with the plealing theme, Earth finks with all it's e_mpty fhows, My foul zMfear, but hi?, difclaims, Our hopes but of his rtierqy knows. . Whom (hou'd I fing b,ut thfct kind now** Who gave me heart and voice to fing ? In death my hope, thro* life,my toVr," Thro' lite and death my God and King. Whom (hou'd I fing but that! Great Sire, Who me and all from nothing rais'd ? Let therefore allwith me confpirc, With joy to fing God's name be praii'd. Mortlake, May 1, 1764. .
