Lloyd's Evening Post (Newspaper) - May 23, 1764, London, Middlesex S EVENING POST. Vol. XIV.] From WEDNESDAY, May 23, to FRIDAY, May 25, i 7^4... [Numb. 1072.. THURSDAY, May 24. LONDON. ExtraSl of a letter from a Gentleman at Philadelphia to his friend in London, March 14,1764. , E are torn by inteftine broils^ the Prefbvterians object to the Quakers having any (hare in the government, which, by the way, is very ; extraordinary, as the Quakers were the founders of it; and, by the conftitu-tion, all DifTenters are ad-nuffible into the Affembly. Indeed, if the Quakers had made ufe of their authority to perfecute, punifh, and diftrefs the Prefbyterians, in the manner the latter ^ did them in New England, there would have been fome grounds for the objection; but nothing of this fort is apprehended. I wifh thefe factious, Oliverian gentry would withdraw to New England, and then I believe we fhould enjoy our former tranquillity, and not have all law, human and divine, trampled under foot,.&c. " Robberies here are very frequent; fup-pofed to be committed by a gang of convicts, tranfported from England. We have rogues enough of our own, and think it very hard you mould force your villains upon us; which is not a very motherly part, no more than fome of your other conduct." Letters from Germany mention, that fome difturbances have lately happened in the dutchy-j of Wirtjgmberg; but the particulars are not ' related. The King of Pruffia has appointed a horfe-market to be. held every year at Martinmafs, at Schwell, in the county of Mark, for the buying and felling of young horfes. .Yefterday the Tartar, Captain Thoburn, �jfrvtA from Gravefend, bound for Jamaica; fhe has on board upwards of forty paflengers, being a greater number than has been known to go in any one fhip for fome time, many of them going to our new fettlemerits at Penfacola in Weft Florida. The. Lords of the Admiralty, who are making the tour of all the yards belonging to his Majeify, went on Tuefday laft to Woolwich, where Lord Egmont, accompanied with three other Lords ot that Board, together with their. Secretaries, took a view of moft of the fhips tliat are building and in ordinary there, muf-tering thefeveral artificers and (hip's companies as they went; enquiring into the nature and prefent ftate of all the ftores; condition of the leveral mips of war; neceflary repairs, &c. and whatever elfe occurred, that their Lord-IhipS thought worthy their notice, was ordered to be minuted forthwith. Their Lordfhips returned to town in the evening, and were expected there again on Wednefday, to complete the great work they had begun ; after . which they are expected to view Deptford, and the other yards. Orders.are given for feveral armed floops and cutters to fail for the coafts of.Scotland, for the protection of trade, and the prevention of frriug^ling, which of late is much in-creafed in thofe parts. Yefterday Lord Tyrawley reviewed the fe-cond .battalion of the fecond regiment of foot! guards in Hyde-Park, when they performed theij exercife, and paffed before his Lordfhip after the new manner they have been lately practifing, and gave great fatisfaction. His Majefty has been pleafed to corrftitute and appoint the Right Hon. Major General Alexander Lord Lindores to be Colonel of the 41ft regiment of foot, or invalids, in the room of Lieutenant-Gen. Parfons, deceafed. Adjutant and Sub-Lieut. Jacob Sawbridge, to beSub-Lieutenaatin the lit troop of horfe-grenadier guards, commanded by Lord Vii-count Cantalupe, in the room of Sub-Lieut. Herbert Taylor, preferred. It is reported that the Lord Lieutenant and the Lords JulHces of Ireland, were much offended with a Gentleman in a diilinguifhed employment in that kingdom. We hear -- Hamilton, Efq; Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, refigned that employment the day the Lord Lieutenant left that kingdom. Yefterday the Lord Bifhop of Armagh, Lord Primate of Ireland, waited on their Majefties at St. James's, for the firfl time fince his arrival from thence, and was moil gracioufly received. The Society for Encouraging Arts, laft night refolved to offer a premium of one hundred pounds toone Mr.Eldridge, for his fecret to tan fheep and other fkins without bark. The fame Society has lately received a valuable treatife from Italy, (in confequence of a propofed premium) pointing out a very falu-tary invention to empty water out of fhips. - By an eftimate lately made, it appears, that the produce of the revenue of hisMajeity'sCu-ftoms has increafed at the rate of upwards of a million per annum fince the Peace Mr. Oxlade, of the General Pofb-Office, has refigned his place as Clerk in the Secretary's Office. Tuefday a journeyman Watchmaker laid a wager of a guinea witfa.& brotJ^r trade, that he would purchafe all tne different parts com-pofing the motion of a watch, from the different manufacturers belonging to the refpec-tive branches, put them together, and fell the watch at the cuftomary price, in the fpace of fourteen hours; which he accordingly performed, and had fufficicnt time left to fpend every farthing of the money. On Monday night a Gentleman on his return home, fell over fome ftones, that were carelefsly left in the foot path, in Cockfpur-Hreet, that is now new paving, and was much hurt by the fall; which being obferved by three fharpers on the oppoiite fide.of the way, one of them went and offered him'Bis afliftance to lead him out of the rubbiih, in the doing of which he^picked his pocket of a gold watch, and afterwards, under pretence of going to call a Surgeon, left hsm in a- helplefs condition, and made off with his booty . Yefterday the Coroner's Inqueft fat on the body- of Mr. Jewell, who was unfortunately found fuffocated in a ditch near the Halfpenny-Hatch, Surry, on Tuesday morning, at the White Horfeat the aforefaid place,, and?.b�>ught in their verdict, Accidental De&th.

Fletcher, and Hodfon, at Cambridge; and-Mr. Jackfop, at Oxford. [Price Two-pence Halfpenny.] To /^Editor ^Lloyd's Evening Post. Sir,. AS I fee by the Papers that fome people-have fuffered by the mal-pradtices of a Bugg Doctor, and as I myfelf know many in-ftances of people's being little the better for all the money and trouble their Bugg Doctor has coft them, I beg leave, thro' the channel of your uieful Paper, to communicate the following receipt, which I know to be efficacious, not only from my own experience, but alfo from that of many of my friends, who, by my recommendation, have conflantly ufetl it. This Receipt- originally appeared in a coun*-try news-paper many years ago, at leait, I never faw it in any other form, and from the manner of expreffion and fimplichy of the compofition I am inclined to tnink it really the production of aPhyfician, founded on experience, and communicated for the good of the Publick. " A Phyfician communicates this well-experienced Receipt for the defiroying of B uggs, with whichheentirelycleared his own beds,&c. five years ago, and has told it to fcores of fa- milies fince, who have all found the fame effects by it, and never faw a Bug� afterwards. " Take of the higheft rectified fpirit of wine, (viz. lamp-fpirits) that will burn.all away dry, and leave not the leait mqifture behind, half a pint; newly diftilled oS, or fpirit of turpentine, half a pint; mix them together, and break into it,_ in fmall bits, half an-ounce of camphire, which will diffolve in it in a few minutes ; fliake them well together,, and with a piece of fpunge, or a brum dipt in fome of it, wet very well the bed or furniture wherein thofe vermin harbour and breed, and it will infallibly kill and deftroy both them and their nitts, altho' they fwarrn ever, fo much: But then the bed or furniture muft be well and thoroughly wet with it (the dull upon them being firffbrui&ed and fhook- off)-, by which means it will neither ftain, foil, nor in the leaft hurt the fincft filk or damaik. bed that is. The quantity here ordered of this curious neat white mixture, (which cofts but abottt a. milling) wtfi rid any one bed whatfoever, tho' it fwarms with buggs: Do but touch a live bugg with a drop of it, and yoii willfjnd it to die inftantly. If any bugg or huggs fhould happen, to appear after once'uftrig ft, it will only be for want of well wetting the^la-cing, &c. of the bed, or the foldings 'of ther.lin~ ings or curtains near the rings, or;the'joints or holes in and about the bed, or head-board, the-buggs and nitts ndtle and-breed,, and then their beingwell Wet all again, with' more of the fame rarxture, which dries in as faft as you ufe it, pouring fome of it into the joints and hdle where the fpunge or- brufh, ca-nnot rtach, wili never fail absolutely to^de-ftroy there all. Some beds-that have much> wood-work, can hardly be thoiougtily cleared,, without being fkft taken-down,i but oEers-that can be drawc out, -or.� tiiatyou1 can get well behiad, to be done a� it (ViQ^be, may.
