Leghorn, [//*>] July 17- The affair between the King of Sardinia and the republic of Venice grows daily nrore frious. His Sardinian Majesty has not only recalled his Ainbafliidor from the republic, but has likewiie given notice to the Marquis de Aigucbtanche, the Venetian Am haflador, to leave Turin direftly, as hoftilitiea will so >n be commenced between Sardinia and Venice. No one pre tends to know the real ground ot this dispute, but it firms at this time the most triflng affair is fufhcient for begin ning a war against a free flaw in order to rob the people of their liberty. . Another quarrel la likely to ensue between the republic of Genoa and the King of Naples, occasioned by the follow ing infignificant affair; A Genoete soldier defatted mi hu port, and went on board a Neapolitan mao of war : rhe Gcncefe officers pursued and took him from on board t man of war, at which his Majesty pretends to be irreconci lably offended, and has sent couriers to Vienna, Hans, and Madrid, with complaints for the insult offered to the S ‘Pa! 7 u b ’9- On th ' 17th performed in the church of the royal abbey, of St. Dennis, the foiemn lervice for the repole of the foul of the late King. The clergy, the parliament, the chambers of account, the officers of the mint, the chatalet, and the members of this city and univeriity, attended in consequence of an invitation sent to them fur that purpose. Monsieur and the Count d*Artois having taken their places, and likewiie the Prmce de Conde, mass was preformed by the Cardinal de la Roc le Aymon ; after which the funaral sermon was delivered by She Bilhop of Senex. When divine service was finifhed, the King of Arms, after throwing into the vault his coat and hood, called to those who carried the several ensigns of ho nour to do the fame. That ceremony being ended, the Duke de Bourbon proclaimed with a loud voice, the King is dead, and the King of Arms repeated three times, the King is dead, let an all fray tn God for the repose of bit foul. Then a prayer was said, and the King of Arms cued out three times, Long true L,uit XVI. which was followed by bud acclamations, and tl<e found of trumpets, &c. Ihe Princes, Clergy, Dukes, and all the officers who attended were afterwards magnificently entertained in the different apartments of the abbey. VIENNA, [Gr/wnmyl August 3. This day at norm a courier arrived here with the news of peace between Russia and the Porte having been concluded on the 17th of July, at the head quarters at Buyak Canarochi, and signed, on the part of tneir refpeftive Sovereigns, by Maiihal Count Romancow, and Achmed Effendi, Chiaga to the Grand Vizir. [London Gas-] LONDON. August 5. At length the last hand is put to the conven tion between the couits of Peterfough, Berlin and Vienna, for the final fetrlement of the PolifN* dominions. The court of Warlaw, now deft, ted by al) the powers on whom they had placed some reliance, must implicitly obey the mandates which are enforced on them. Ihe Poles are a most melancholy proof of the miLhicfs arising from intestine divisions, and fliould be a warning to the minirters of other countries how far they attempt an infringement on the rights of their fellow fubjedr. Within these two years, it appears by letter’ from New foundland. that the Sp miards are carrying on the cod fifoery in thole leas, and that it is expeded they will prove as troublesome co-tempoiaries in that employ as the French have frequently been. If I remember right, lays our cor respondent, the Span’ards aieby treaty prevented from pur suing such measures, bur treaties and negotiation are efteem cd now a. days merely things of course. A correspondent, just returned from a peregrination through many parts of the kingdom, fays the serious, sober, and better fort of people appear every wbeie to be much hurt at the Quebec Bill, and make no scruple to declare, that all who voted for the eft.iblilhment of Popery in any part of the Kinx’s dWi’mions, cannot be confidcrcd as zea lous friends to the Protestant Church, as eftabliflied by law, and no candidate at the next eleftion will be believed, when he profeffes in hit advertisement to be “ zealously attached to rhe laws and constitution of his country, and promises to use his oert endeavours for the preservation of its civil and religious liberties.” It may be said the Jewilh religion is endured in the metropolis, and why may not the Roman Catholic religion be tolerated in a country taken from the French > But it must be observed, that the true Christian shrinks at the reflexion, that the murderers of Christ ihonld find favour among the faithful, and all true friends to the Revolution start at tne idea of elhblnhing Popery by law in the m >ft distant part of the Britifli empire. Those who call themselves men of the world, laugh at principles, when set in oppohtion to interest, and treat the national flame against the Jew Rill as national folly ; but if the zeal which thought about the repeal of the aft was over heated, it was a fault of the right fide. If the people did not (hew them* felvn men of the world, they proved themselves good Christians ; they will Ihortly prove themselves true friends to the glorious Revolution, and manifeft their inveterate hatred to the protest friends of P prry and arbitrary power. 6- Yesterday both Houles of Convocation met, pursuant ro their last prorogation, when they were further prorogued to the r6th of September next. The Colonies of North America are of greater importance to the wealth and (hength of this country, than people who are not tliorougMy acquainted therewith imagine, though they have been called loads and burdens by the Ministry. A stranger to this gieatneG and trade would be furprixed to fee their ports and harbours in time of peace, crowded with veilcis from all parts of the world. In times of dilhefr what relief have they not aftuded us from their plenteous granaries? The Weft-India islands are almost entirely fopphed by them with every treasure of lite, and materials for the manufac turing and curing their commodities. It has be-n a long received maxim, that Great-Britain can never be ruined but by the parliaments ; and if they fliould ever grow so weak, negligent, or corrupt, as to fufter a partial influence to prevail in their meafores and resoluti ons, we fliould be stupid indeed to think ourfetves any longer secure. If places, pensions, and honours pretail with the W.viduals of that body, as to make the majority of them rhe fen ants of those who have such baiu to throw out, what iniquitous jobs may not be tranladed, what Ihares nf the revenue may not be picked up and pocketed in secret fcni;es f The Queen of Hungary has at length been prevailed up on by her son the Emperor, to bring out her troops into the field, forty thousand of which are now encamped on the borders of Transylvania ; however they are intended merely as an army of observation on the motions of the Turks and R jflians in that quarter, as the major part of the Imperial army is employed in Poland. A great and amiable Lady, as well as her brothers, hare for lome rime past much intreated a Great Personage to visit Germany, which, it it said, he has, as far as he can, com plied with ; and next summer is fixed upon. This is the r-afon why the naval review was given over this summer ; that with what is supposed will attend the above journey, being thought too much to put the nation to. Au 'utt Il i» k"! th* l Governor Hutcninfon hi had fevera7i.onfe.enc« with his Majesty, lance tne arrival ot the late adv-ces from Bottom _ The ftiie of the Bottonians in their address to General Gage, together with his anfwerto their addrefs,is very alarm ing to the trading part of this kingdom, as it kerns not to ind.cate that mild dilpolition on either fide, which was hear tily wifhtd for by every true friend to this country. Tlie freih proclamation iflued by General Gage, seems as if his inftrudions ware to carry every thing in America with a high hand. . . The Ministry are determined to shew no want of I pint against the Americans.—’Tis pity, fays a correlpndmt, they were not more tenacious of the national honour our natural enemy, from whom they have borne evey alarming depredation without complaint. The accounts received from Amenca have caused several meetings to be held among the.M.aHhy, to connder of the most efteftuai methods to inforce the afts with refpeft to Bolton ; and it is laid, orders have been dispatched to prevent the meeting of the Deputies from the provinces ol America, as unconstitutional and illegal. Some inethot s, it is said, have been already punned, to prevent the meeting at Fancuii-hall, at Button, the fpecches at which place hav ing lerved to keep the people in a fiaine. Arnulf 9. Those perlons who are weak enough to blame the Americans for their just, natural, and spirited defence of their ancient rights and privileges, would, no doubt, have condemned our ancestors for their manly opposition to the various arbitrary and wicked designs of the Stuarts > and which oppolition brought about not only the abdication of that wretched run-a-way James 11. but also the glorious revolution. , Last night at the R binhood, in the Butcher-Row, the quertion, “ Whether the extent of territory is advantageous to a commercial nation ?" was finally determined in the negative. Another question, “ Whether the intended non importation agreement ot the Americans is defensible on the principles of reason and justice ? Was likewiie entered upon j some weighty arguments weie used on both sides ; but the question stands adjourned till next Monday evening, when the fliew of hands will determine it. ♦ A large quantity of mooring chains, ground swivels, and other furniture, proper for securing his Majesty’s (hips of war in tlie harbours a. id roads, are ordered to be fliipped off for North America. The principal report of the day >• the afFahs of toe Bofto niana ; The provinces of New York, Philadelphia, South and North Carolina, Nova Scoria, and Halifax, have heartily entered into the American cause. Circular letters are sent to all the trading towns, to call meetings of the inhabitants, for the purpose of fettling the nonimportation agreem so that in all probability the Britilhexporta to North Ame rica will shortly be funk down at 000.0001. OS. od. August jo. The Affairs of America are every day more and more embarrafling to the Ministry. The union amongst the Colonies is very alarming to them. Force attempt 'd against the Colony will be relented as foice aimed against the whole ; and as the people on that fide the Atlantic are growing rich, they in proportion grow sturdy and -efolute. Ordert have been given for a farther conjiderable boely of troop to be held in readmeft for embarkation toNorth-America. August Ij. Some aicounti of a very alarming nature are said to have been received by the ministry concerning the con duit of the American}. It is privately whilpered that within these few days some very dilagreable things have parted between our ministers and the Dutch ambaflador, concerning some late tranfaftions in America, which have hitherto been concealed from the pub lic eye. Several transport fliips are contracted for on government account, to cany more forces to America. We hear it is under consideration to raise a regiment in the province of Canada, to be called the Royal Canadians, which are to be officered chiefly by natives of that province. Upon a very moderate computation it appears, that 60,c00 men are fbughtered every campaign while the war continues between the l urks and Rurtians. August 11. Tuesday night a Pr"flian courier, Gid to be a perlon oi great diftinftion, arrived at St. Jame; s with some dispatches from his the King of Pruflia, which were immediately tranimitted tn Kew. Tuefdav morning several packets were sent off from the Plantation Office, Whitehall, to be forwarded from Falmouth for the Gavernors of the refpeftive colonies in America. August 12. V/e are told that several transports are con traded for, to carry forces to America. A correspondent fays, it would have ihewn more wisdom in government not tu have made it neceliary to have sent any forces there at all. August 13. An express was sent oft’ three weeks ago to Canada, to arm the militia of that country with all conve nient speed.—The Reason of this order may be easily guefed at—to have a body of forces in readinefa to aiiift the pera tions of General Gage in reducing the malecontents of the Provinces. The two following paragraph} are supposed to be written by John Mem, in Londcn, vis. ,l A correspondent fays, that a nong ah the caballing of the Righteous of f ofton, and elfewhcre in the Maffachuletts, &c. nothing appears in their relblutions in regard to the payment of the tea they plundered and destroyed j hence he oblerves may be known, what an admirable assembly of knaves and traitors have been lately grouped together on lome late patriotic occasions." “ The fame correspondent adds that the patriots may make themselves easy in regard to the naked poles on Temple bar, which they hav- made such a rout about late ly,—aa in all probability they will be fnon deeorated with feme of the patriotic nodd es of the Rollon faints.” August 15. Letters in town from Bolton bring accounts, that a.l hopes of accommodation with the mother country are over. If any hopes had remained, General Gage would only have prorogued, and not diflbfved their aflembly. The confcquences are evident ; Their non-impoitation scheme will likely become general over all America j so that blocking up the ort of Boston, instead of being a punifh menton the Americana, will, in fad, annihilate our export trade to America, and fall heavy on the Britifli merchants and manufacturers. The people of America are unanimous in their resolu tions never to submit to taxation ; and government is now strangely embarrailed how to withdraw, with any degree of credit, their.necks from these new impolitic/fee/ traps. August 16. A genrieman lately arrived from Quebec afliires us, that when he was there the protestants were obliged to exercise their raligion in secret for fear of the re sentment of the Roman Catixilics.—What then can we ex pell will be the fate of the poor proteflants, under the late famous or rather infamous Quebec bill, which weare Insult ingly told, “ is fousded on the dearest principles of justice and humanity ?" We hear, that orders are sent off to Ireland, for four re giments to embark immediately lor America ; they are to take in their piuvifions at Cork. One of our Monaichs (probably act King George the second) is said to have been exceedingly offended on find ring the following lines,written with spend),in one of the Pa vilions of Richmond G uden : They seem intended for a Parody of the famous Epitaph upon King Charles, by Wil mot Earl of Rochefler: God bless our B- — p making King • Rut fend us soon a new one ! To do perchance a generous Thing, And sometimes speak a true one. MZtl tN. The Hague Gasetiee, under the line London has the fuJiowng article : “ We have nut yet any news of the deliberations of the provincial alfembly at. Salem. As the court has charged General Gage to make certain proposals to that atlembly relpeding an indemnity to the Eaft-india Company, it is hoped that their acquiefence will produce the speedy re eftabliflunent of the liberties and privileges of the city of, Boston. The King, determined to maintain the dignity of his crown, is refolvcd at die fame time to procure all con- Okting means to r* «n cfat c 'i-- • - bttwotft England and the colon/. A Correfpoi.dent informs us, that he has undoubted n teliigence that a large Indy of jcfoits arc prepa,.hg to Kt tie at Quebec, ai d that a College h to be eretted there for their reception ; so that this body of men, who hue been perfecuced in most Romm Catholic counties as cm inks to chriftianily and the public pca.e wi.i a length find art af,lum in thtdomininns of a Protestant Prince. St. f. Ct-ron. A Gentleman just airived frem Birmingham informs us, that at most of the villages in that Neighbourhood particu larly at Edjebafton, the Roman Catholic Form ot Worlhip is as publicly performed asthatof the eltabli’hed Church ; and that the Priests publicly inftruft the weak and the ig norant in their pernicious Doctrine, and make many Frofa* iytes. August ty. Monday morning fame important dispatches arrived at Lord Dartmouth’s Office, from bir John Dick, his Majesty’s C<>nlul G' neral at Lilbon, which are to be laid to morrow before the Privy Council. An express is arrived at Lord Rochford’s office, with an account of the peace between the Ruffians and Turks being signed the 17th or July last. A Bilhop is ihortly to be appointed for Quebec, in the manner nf Oinaburg and Lubeck; a protestant and papist alternately: England is to have the firft nomination. We hear from good authority, that above one hundred gentlemen, ladies, and families of moderate fortunes, in tend next May to embark tor North America, with 5 or 600 families of sober and induftri >us hulbandmen, artificers, and manufacturers, who cannot get bread in England. Those who have money, intend to purchase lands at a very moderate rate, and improve them. The climate is good, and psvvifions of all jcinda in great plenty, and extremely cheap. Ladies of 20001. fortune in the funds cannot, in these expensive times, live with tolerable decency in the cheapest parts of England. In America, they can live with all the conveniences and comforts of life upon the produce of that sum carried over there. The plan of this exteniive design will be publiflied, that more persons may take the advantage of going in company with some gentlemen and bdiesofthe most refpedabie chaiaders in this kingdom, who will put themselves at the head of this benevolent design. From the [Leaden] Public Lidcfb, Augufl 13. THE Sporting Calendar of the Royal Exchange on the Weft-Ind a Walk, proposes the following bets to the consideration of the meicantile part of the community. TWO to ONE but the whole body of Weft-India mer chants address the Throne within three months for the re peal of the Boston Bills. SIX to FOUR that one hundred thoufard Manufactur ers make their appearance at St. James’s with an AddreG, “ praying his Majesty to put them in some way of procuring “ subsistence for their families, as the ruin of the Amrrxan ** Trade has involved them in deftru&ion." An even bet that General Gage is either hanged or forced to quit the province within Six months. A guinea to a shilling but General Gage, notwithstand ing his Buck* am Proclamation, turns out—a Bob a oil. An even bet that before the expiration of the ensuing winter Governor Hutchinson will not dare tu shew his 'I REACH EROUS head in the Streets of London. Immense odds but that tlie whole of out American com merce is destroyed beyond redemption. An hundred to one that if the Americans unite, honesty and freedom will put ignorance, rafcaiity, and oppieflion, to the rout. Five to one that if the sword is drawn, General Gage miltakes a WINDMILL fur a magazine of arms, and is more intent on gaining BREAD, than VICTORY, for his troops. A million to one but he wiflres the minister at the Devil before the campaign begins. From the PENNSYLVANIA To GENERAL G AG E. SIR, TH E meafores of tlx British administration have of late been So infamous, that no man can guide them, without being, the fubjcCl of general censure. The domes tic virtues of Lord North, and the religious graces of Lotd Dartmouth, have not exempted them from the execrations of the public. These faCt. have been examined by a new feCt of plvbfophe'S at St. James’s, and have ed the truest touch-stone of merit. The acclamations of millions, are now looked upon as the breath of faCtion, and the resentment of a nation is esteemed the only reward (to boirow a phrase from the court) for dcing one’s duty. The t m*s are forgotten when every breath that afeended from Britain, called down bleiTings upon the heads of Burleigh and Chatham. lt Contcmptu fame, contemni virtutem.” public virtue, and the love of fame, will always Stand and fell together in a free country. This introduction was necessary in an address to your Ex cellency. You have learned, Since your graduation st the Bntifli St. Omers, toprefer the approbation of your sove reign to the applause of the whole us your fellow fubjeCta in America. You have substituted the former for the ap probation of your confciet>ce, and you have branded the just cenluros of the latter with the name of calumny. Give me leave, Sir, to examine the nature of this vice, and to en quire how far you have a right to charge your loss of cha racter upon it. Calumny, is a tax imposed by a few bad men only, upon extraordinary merit. The influence of a patty has some times made it general; but in such cases it is always tran sitory. A few ftriCtures upon your cha.-aCtei and conduCl, will fliow how far you are entitled to the honor of fuffering from this cause. You are so far from puffefling any extraordinary merit, that you have defeated the designs of your friends, who at tempted to supply your want of the qualities of a governor, and a general, by ascribing to you the fimplt virtues of a good man. You have not been condemned by a transitory fa&iun, but by the permanent unbiarted fuffrages of every freeman in America. By sffuming to yourleif therefore, those credentials of merit, which justice and wifoum derive from calumny, you commit a more criminal att of forgery, than ever was expiated at Tyburn. You have received many flattering addrefes Since your ac cession to your government. Permit me to famish your Excellency with a medium, through which 1 beg you would read them. The art of embalming dead bodies was con trived only to preserve them from putrefaction. Flattery serves the fame purposes upon living characters. It culleCls the tcattered rays of human depravity into a focus. The most flagitious crimes appear like hoiinefs, when compared with the offerings which it has kindled at the Shrine of arbitrary power. I blufli for my country, when I refleCt, that She has discovered in her infancy a relation to her frederal head by signs of this original corruption. Men have been found, even in Boston, who have absolved a Rernard and an Hutchinson. The fame men have extolled your moderati on and equity. They have difeovered an olive branch in your mouth. Nay—they have gone further.—They have equtlled in maturity of corruption the feyophants in the ftye of Westminster. They have afcnbed to your Excellency ABILITIES. It is to no purpose to fay, that some of those men are per sons of the firft rank and fortune in your government. Men of such characters were the firft on the lift of defection in the United Provinces. 1 honor public virtue in a rich man, as much as I do piety in a soldier ; but I never harbour the idea of America being enslaved, without fancying I fee the badges of our fnbjedion felted with the names of men, who have been fattened upon her breasts. This idea is at all times a fugitive one, for since the spirit of liberty has gone forth among our farmers, I no lunger wifli to pry into the decrees of heaven.

What do the Britons want ’ Richts and honour What do the Americans want ? Liberty. —Cannot both be grati fied ?

Because they won’t follow the plain dictates of common lenfe. —ls the path be so plain wherein Britain may secure her honour and intrreft, and the Americans their liberty, you wi.l naturally fay, point it out I I anlwer, here it is. Let Britain secure her honour by demanding nothing but what is Lonouralle and just, and her interest w,ll forever be infrparabtefrom her honour j let the Americans remain per f-ttiy free, and enjoy the blcflingi of the Britifli constitution in their full extent, equal with Britons in Britain— Then will the wealth of America flow into Britain through the channel of commerce, as naturally and as certainly as the rivers run into the ocean—Complaint, wrath, and envy, between the two countries will cease, and mutual love and good will may re-animate your bofems. This lurely would be honourable for Britain, happy for America, and gloricue for the whole nation.—Some are lb extremely weak, as to talk of Britain’s maintaining her honour, by enforiing her laws, however unjust to others, or injurious to Ixrklf; —a people governed by such principles, must be considered by all the rest of the world as a nation of fools and madmen. The wisest men sometimes err, and it is a lure lign of t wisdom to be willing to correfl an error when it is difeover ed, and all men esteem it honourable. The Briti/h parlia ment has often acknowledged an error, by repeating her own afts, when it was found by experience that they were inju rious, and by so doing flie encreafed her honour and her re putation in the world.—Why, then, in the name of resfon, fliould any man suppose that her honour is concerned to maintain the present mcafurer refpefting America, when a scheme of policy infinitely more advantageous lies open to every common mind ? 1 was going to mention the wide desolation and (fotadful calamities which await the nation, if harmony is nut soon restored, but at present 1 forbear.
