"In our bay, on the night of the 7th inst. in a
most violent gale of wind, at fouth west, three ships from Liverpool were droe
from their anchors on St. Mary's Rock, and are totally lost with their cargoes,
one of them a brig, called the Peggy, Henry Pardo, master, bound for Dublin,
fifteen people out of her were drowned, the master and mate saved. Amongst the
unfortunate persons who perished, were Capt. Brabazon, and Lieut. Courtney. No
person was lost out of the other two Vessels. Other Ships are put in here, with
many passengers for different parts of Ireland.
On Friday last about eleven o'clock at
night a rogue opened the parlour window belonging to Mr. Naghten, in Fownes's-street,
near the play-house, and got into the same, but a servant hearing some noise,
and going into the Parlour, the villain made off, without taking any thing of
value except a ruffled Shirt, a hat, and handkerchief. A watchman's stand is
opposite the house.

Yesterday, the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, reviewed the

made a formidable Appearance, particularly the Watch of St. ANN's and St. MARY's,
who were provided with LIGHT INFANTRY CAPS, HALBERTS, and BACK-SWORDS, and their
Lanthorns flung on belts. These and the City Watch (who attend Essex-Bridge) are
worthy of the imitations of the other Parishes, which if equally regulated under
the Inspection of his Lordship, the Inhabitants of this Metropolis would soon be
relieved, from the Dangers, they have so long been subjected.
To the PUBLIC,
As the melancholy Accident which happened to George Warner,
at the Boot and Shoe Ware-house on Ormond-quay, Dublin, the 1st Instant
December, has been attended with a considerable Loss to said Warner in his
Circumstances, it is hoped the Generous and Humane will be pleased to take the
same into Consideration; and all who are pleased to contribute towards making up
his Loss, are requested to send their Benefactions to Edward Newenham, Esq; in
Granby-row, and Thomas Cobbe, Esq; at his Grace the Lord Archbishop of Dublin's
in Kevan-street, who are pleased to receive the same.

AT the Britannia Man of War, opposite
St. Michael's Church, who for may Years had the Honour to serve the Nobility and
Public in general, in the most extensive Manner, and as she will employ none but
the best Hands, hopes for a Continuance of their Favour which she will endeavour
to merit by having their Commands executed in the most exact Manner: Country
Merchants and others will find their Advantage to deal with her, as her Goods
are known to be the best in the Kingdom, and has always on Hands, a large
Assortment ready for Exportation.
N.B. She humbly entreats the Favour of those indebted to her,
to discharge their Accounts.

The Watch of St. Mary's Parish, by a new Regulation, is
set every Night by Beat of Drum, and the Parish perambulated by the Serjeant,
Corporal, and four Men at nine o'Clock, with the Drum beating Ta-too. This
Method of setting the Watch, the military Appearance of the Watchmen, and the
Discipline introduced in this and St. Ann's Parishes, we hope will induce the
other Parishes of this City to follow their Example: When this Regulation
becomes general, which our chief Magistrate is taking great Pains to effect; we
think there can be no Doubt of the future Safety of the Inhabitants under such
Protection; and no small Addition of Strength afforded to the Civil Power.
The poor Prisoners in the Four Courts Marshalsea
