excited various conjeflures ; but the idea now prevalent on that

A gentleman lately arrived fromOftend,gives an account of a
feftival held there on account of an old lady having arrived at the
age o. loo years. She had been of material firvice to the inpe-
rial Cr wn, in evidence of an occurrence remembered only by
herfelf. In confideratim of which the Emperor fettled upon her
a penlion ot three pence a day, and being informed that a cen
tury of years had rolled over her head, ordered a jubilee to be
held on the dccafion.—The good folks ot Oftend always
glad of an opportunity to keep a holiday, exhibited their bell ap
parel, and all the paraphernalia of the Church—.After which
came the old lady moil fuperbly ornamented, fupported by the
magillrates, who attended her to the Alter of t le Cathedral,
where mafs was performed and TV Deum fung by the choir, the
old lady then afeended a throne raifed for the purpofe where fhe
took a fojeranoath that the remaining part of her life fhould be
dedicated to aifts of piety and devotion, and that fhe never
would ennfent to receive the addrcfles of—man / I his extraor
dinary piece of jelf-dtniai being ended, the company concluded
the day with the g eaceft rejoicings..
A very different turn of thinking operated on another old wo
man at .^bbots Bromley (England) who went to Church with a
lufty young man aged iS, her age 8;;, he being the fourth huf
band and it is now 69 years fince file was married to her fi-ft
hufband. A great concourfe of people attended the matrimo
nial ceremony, but crowding too precipitately into the Chu'-ch
they threw the old lady down ; fhe however recovered htrlelf,
and with lier-ftick challifcd the intruders. A wheelbarr w be
ing brought to the Church door, when the fond couple came
out, the old lady was forced into it, and her flout hufband was
obliged to wheel her to the bridal habitation.

By intelligence received from the weflward, as late as Auguft
15th, we learn, that a party of 40 men under the c-mmand of
Major Thomas Steward, having unguardedly croff'd the l e-

tacked by a large body of Indians, fop iofed to be betw en one
and two hundred. Our people fired feveral times, but being
overpowe-td by numbers, they endeavoured to retreat back a-
cri/fs thr river } the Indians by thi-. time had got in their rear,
and fuch as efcaped had to 1 ide thro’ a heavy fire, in the river,
and on the hither bank. Our lofs is great, upwrirds of twenty
are yet miffing, and feveral wounded ; among the killed are young
Kirk, he who was fo aftive againft the Indians fince the

Britain has in America a military frree of 13 batallions—
which is a much greater number than fhe has either in the Eaft

of this force is ftatiuned within tfic territories of fovenern the

If .h- cbfeivation were doubtful that a traitor is hated even

the moft affti^li^ idea that his fon was then fuffsring in the
