     Cork, Dec. 5. Last Thursday evening it blew a Storm with the Wind. N.E. and continued to do so all Night with great Violence, which has done considerable damage: At Blackpool a house was blown down, but happily no person hurt thereby; several other houses have been unroofed; a large Stone Wall was likewise blown down, on the Lands of Lota, near this City, the Seat of Robert Rogers, Esq; by the fall of which eight Sheep that had taken Shelter under it were crushed to death; and a great number of trees standing on said Lands were torn from their Roots. We do not hear of any damage being done to the Shipping in this Harbour; but it is feared we shall have dismal Accounts from Sea.

They thought to make good the Key, but keeping too far off the peer in the entrance brought the vessel on the rock. The scene was dreadfully distressing to the numerous spectators on shore, it being just at hand, without the least ability of giving relief. Twelve were drowned, whose bodies have been taken up, and interred in Donaghadee Church-yard; among whom were the mother and her four children. The survivor saved himself, by the support of some oars which he tied together, whereby he was brought to shore. The vessel and cargo, except some of the cheese, are lost.

    Extract of a Letter from Donglas, in the Isle of Man, dated
                          December 9, 1763.
     "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.
     On Sunday Capt. Moore and his Lady, Capt. Lawe, Mr. and Mrs. Phillips, ____ Irwin, Esq; Dr Cunningham and Mr. Thompson, arrived on board the Dorset Yatch from Parkgate; as did a great number of passengers, and a cargo of merchandize in the Lively, Capt. Williams.
    On Sunday a charity sermon was preached in St. Audeon's church, for the support of the charity school of St. Catherine, by the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Clogher, after which a collection was made of 45l. A charity sermon was also preached in St. Kevan's church, by the Rev. Dr. Man, Archdeacon of Dublin, and 20l.18s.6d. was collected.
     Yesterday, the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, reviewed the Watchmen of the several Parishes of this City in St. Stephen's-Green, when they 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.

WIDOW and Executrix of MICHAEL SHARMAN, Shoemaker, late of High street, Dublin,

     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 acknowledge the Receipt of two Guineas by the Hands of Mr. William Williamton, from a Lady; for which they return their most grateful Thanks. Also half a Crown given them for them to Mr. M'Culloh, Printer, in Henry-street.
