He vvas then detained, and informa
tion ot this Tingiilar occurence dif-
p atched to Lord Sydney. Soon after,
a fergcant and party of the guards
from the Qiteen's guard-houfe took >
him into curtody. On taping quefti-
oned, he faid he was by profellion a
hair-dreiTer, and worked with Mr.
Warren in Paved-alley Pall-mall, and
lodged at a hair-drelfer’s in Caftle-
»court, in the Strand. Lord Sydney
diretled him to be taken to the public
office, to be examined by Mr. Adding
ton : the coach flopping in its way
to Bow-llrect, at Paved-alley, on the
appearance of his mafter he fpit in his
face, and a6led in a manner to jurtify
the fufpicion before entertained of his
being in a (fate of infanity.
On his examination before the ma-
giftrate, he faid his name was Spang;
that his father was by birth a Dane,
but he was born in London, near
Ma y-fair. ,
V, hen qneflioned how he got into
the place without being difeovered, he
exclaimed, “ aye, that is the quellion !”
but refufed to anlwer more on this
point. He ridiculed, with much force,
the porter, for not being able to ac
count, in a particular manner, how he
o’ Alined entrance. Mr. Warren faid
SpAiig had w'orked for him near two
years, and left his fervice about a
week ago without previous notice. He
was always an honed induftrious man,
and never betrayed any marks of adif-
cii-eied mind, that came within his
oparig appears to be about 27 years
of age, rather fhort, light hair, and
fair complexion, fiiabbily drelfed;
Vv hen fearched nothing vvas found in
his pockets of an offenfive kind, or
even a Tingle half-perny : tears were
frequently obferved to deal down his
chwchs, and he fighed in fuch a man-
, neras to affect every perfon prelent.
I qSpakg’s Re-Examination,
At fird he had the appearance of
being coilecled, and dated very fimply^
that he vvas the Ion of one Spang„a
Dane by birth, but that he was himfelf
bom in London j his father was a
ftatuapy ; that he vvas apprenticed to
a haif-dreffer of the name of Stokes, of
Covent-Garden parifh ; that after the
term of his apprenticediip was expired,
he went into a fei vice. He then men
tioned the names of Lord Kenfington,
Mr. Stanhope, the Duke of Leeds,
and Capt. Thidlewaite, out of whofe
fervice he faid he was fent up from
Plymouth to London, five or fix years
ago, to the pariih of St. Martin’s uin
the fields, by whom he was tranf-
mitted to Covent-Garden parifli ; that
Mr. Coombs, the church warden, fent
him to Bethnal-Green, where he re
mained a month or five weeks in a
drait jacket hand-cuffed, but that Mr.
Coombs had him difeharged. He was
alkcd if he had any friends or relati
ons ? to which he replied he had, the
Dukes of York, Cumberland, and
Glouccfter, and the King of Spain be-
fides. But have you any particular
friend ? Yes,,Mr. Coombs and one or
When afkcd what brought him to
the Queen’s palace, he faid, ^ods, his
particular motives were to fee the Duke
of Cumberland. To the queftion of
“ how did he get admittance to the
palace ?” He faid that he met no op-
pofition, but that “ he went in boldly
as he ought, like a man,” that he was
taken from there and fent to the guard

Meffrs. Bowen & Howard,
PP VER fince the publication of your
paper of the 3d inftant, which
contained that frightful piece under
the fignature of Honejius^ my head has
been in a ftate of torpidity.—I have
been vifited by the moft fkilful gentle
men of the faculty, but to no purpofe:
They declare that my fituation is dan
gerous, andn that I cannot have any
relief. 1 am unable to determine what
meafures to purfue for my recov ery.
One of my phyficians advifed me to
renounce every idca*^of federalifm, and
fubmit to the found reafoning of Ho-
7tejius. A lawyer who was prefent, ad
vifed, that I ftiould commence a fuit
againft Honejius^ as the cafe appeared
a6lionablc, alfo it was evident that
Homjtui was the caufe of my diftrcls.
