     SPUGGING- I fancy he never heard or thought of, as 'twas not practis'd during his Existence, it being a new invented Method for employing Time; nor did I (tho' I'm impertinently perhaps prying into the Concerns of the Ladies) ever hear of it, till within these four or five Months last. This Amusement is, viz. About two or three o'Clock in the Morning a Company of Males and Females meet, they are always of the better Sort of People; inshort (as the Phrase is) Gentlemen and Ladies, for this is an Entertainment practis'd by none else, 'tis too refin'd and polite for vulgar Creatures to experience its beauteous Delicacies, or know any Thing of it; I say they meet after all the old People of the House, Pappa, Mamma, &c. have comfortably enjoyed their first Naps, and after a little hoydening go to Tea, Coffee, &c. commonly too the Spuggers regale themselves with a chearful Glass of Wine or Punch after Tea; and then (to settler their Heads) feast upon Mutton-Chops, or Beef-Stakes, which Mrs. Superstition (the Lady of the House) never once dream'd of, tho' she has frequently a Fore-knowledge (by Dreams) into Futurity, and knows of very remarkable Occurence that happens in her Family, and indeed she imagin'd sometime before one of her Daughters threw herself away, that a Gentleman in a Blue-Coat kiss'd her, which she always knew was a certain Sign of Deceit or Falshood; but to the Spuggers, after a vast deal of Playing extinguishing the Candles, &c. as you'll see concerning the She-Romps in the 2?7th Number of the Spectater, differing in this Respect, that the She-Romps did not permit Male V ?????  to enter their Club, whereas a Spugg, could not be without that Lordly Creature Man to grace it.
     I must go now to enumerate the many vile as well as melancholy Consequences which have already attended Spugging; let it suffice to say, that if a Gentleman proves rude to a Lady (in the Dark) she has no Remedy except she chuses to forfeit the Pleasure of her Parents; calling out, or making a Resistance or Noise may disturb the old People, &c. &c. &c. I think in the Whole Ladies, by these kind of nocturnal or (I should say) early Revelings and Visitings, hazard their Reputations (with some specious Reasons indeed) to the malicious Censure of every wicked Tea-Table surrounded by Matrons too old to share in those Doeish, out of the Way Sports. We have even many gay LOTHARIOS amongst us,
          Who talk of Beauties that they never saw,
          And fancy Raptures that they never knew.
who think it no Crime to boast of being till such an Hour in the Chamber of a fair Lady; and by their Gesturesd, Winks and Nods will intimate the Worst that could possibly happen on such Occasions.
          Were you ye Fair but cautious whom you trust,
          Did ye but know how seldom Fools are just,
          So many of your Sex would not be in vain
          Of broken Vows, and faithless Men complain, &c.
I'm pretty sure there are many Girls who are fond of Spuggs.
          Sweet virtuous innocent with ev'ry Grace
          That e'er adorn'd that latest softest Race,
     But, Gentlemen, a Woman ought not only to be virtuous, but all the Earth should think her so; a Female might as well in reality be a Prostitute as imagined so, that is in this World, in the next there's indeed an immense Difference. What a shocking Creature a Woman is who has lost her virgin Innocence? She is a poor Wretch (as Mr. Roe says) "Scorn'd by the Women, and pittyed by the Men; oh! insupportable a Woman cuts as despicable a Figure depriv'd of her Honour, as a Man does who is branded with the odious Name of Rascally Coward. 'Tis just the same Case, a Woman's Honour is center'd in her Virtue, and a Man's in his Courage and Resolution.
     Now if Ladies employed their leasure Hours in reading, working or Household Matters (which ought never to be left unheeded by the Female Sex, let them be ever so grandly oppulent) 'twould turn out more to their Advantages, and get them match'd off sooner than labouring at their Indianlike or rather Savage Custom of Painting, also Patching, Scouring, Adorning, Admireing, Spugging, Gadding, Villifying, with various other numerous Absurdities, which they are unhappily guilty of, and are indeed incident to _________.
     I almost forgot to mention one of the important Ceremonies made use of by the Spuggers; after they have finish'd their within Door Work, they (however incredible to believe) sally into the Streets, (Men and Women) and with their horrid Screaming, Bauling, Laughing, and Singing alarm the whole Town, and disturb honest Trades-Folks who were beguiling the Labours of the foregoing Day, in sweet and peaceful Slumber. In a short Time the Women will grow more shameless than ever Men were; and those of the Masculine Gender (like Cambyses) will gradually fall into unmanly Sloath and Italian Effeminancy, and betake themselves to the Distaff, and Needle-Work, which the Offspring of Eve have now entirely thrown aside, and diligently taken to the more reigning Employments, and modish Qualification of _____.
          Placing Raillery in Railing,
          Will tell aloud your greatest Failing,
          Nor makes a Scruple to expose
          Your bandy Leg, or crooked Nose.
          Can at her Morning Tea run o'er
         The Scandal of the Day before,
          Improving hourly in her Skill,
          To cheat and wrangle at Quadrille,
          In chosing Lace a Critick nice,
          Knows to a Groat, &c. &c.- See the Furniture of a Woman's Mind in Swift's Works.-- Vol. 2d
                    I am Gentlemen, yours, &c.
January the 28th 1764.                   A CENSOR.

     Extract of a letter from Killybegs, dated Feb. 8, 1764.
     Last Thursday in a hard gale of wind, a ship bound from Leith to the East Indies, David Engle master, laden with salmon, &c. came into our bay in distress, having lost her boat, compass, and part of her rigging; but the weather being so tempestuous no boat dare venture out to her relief. In the evening she ran on Donegall bay and about 9 o'clock she foundered, and most of the Crew perished.

     John Martin, the younger of Drumcork, near Augher, in the County of Tyrone, Gent. is appointed a Commissioner to take Affidavits for the Court of King's Bench, Common Pleas, and Exchequer in Ireland.
     SUNDAY a Charity Sermon was preached in the Parish Church of St. Mary, by the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Clogher, after which a Collection was made of 309l.
     About nine o'clock, on Wednesday Night, Mr. Simon Sherlock was stopped on Sir John Rogerton's-quay, by three Footpads, and robbed of nineteen Guineas, and four Shillings in Change: One of the Robbers was a short squat Man, dressed in a  Sailor's Jacket, the other two were lusty Men, armed with Cutlasses, with which they gave him several Blows, and cut his Hat to Pieces.
     Thursday se'nnight as Matthias Begg, of Kilkeelan in the County of Meath, Gent.was returning home from Dublin, he was unfortunately thrown from his Horse on the Road near Trim, and was killed on the Spot.
     It is with utmost Dissidence and Reluctance that Mr. MINELLI presumes to trouble the Public with his Solicitations, but his Necessities are extreme, and no other possible Method of Relief can be contrived; the public Attention is therefore most humbly entreated to the following Particulars of his unhappy Story.
     Mr. Minelli came over here some Time ago as Director to a Company of Burletta Singers, took Advantage of a Clause in their Agreement, which enabled them to separate themselves entirely from him, they having Expectations of greater Profit from pursuing another Scheme. This left Mr. Minelli liable to several Demands, which he had subjected himself to, form the Prospect of continuing Manager during the whole Season. Among others, to one from Mrs. RICCI, a Dancer, whom he had employed principally out of Charity, as she was his Countrywoman, and then in Distress; she performed a few Nights only, for which she was actually paid; but Minelli being immediately deprived of the Management, it was not in his Power to employ her anymore, he therefore looked upon himself as free from any farther Obligation, especially as she and her Husband continued to live apparently on Terms of Friendship and Intimacy with him. At length, however, when he had not the least Suspicion, they, under Pretence of a Contract for the whole Season, treacherously arrested him, and threw him into Gaol, where he has now languished very near two Years.
     Thus by a Series of severe Treatment, without any blameable or fraudulent Step on his Part, Minelli, an entire Stranger, unacquainted even with the Language of the Country, neglected and forgotten, might have perished this Winter, had it not been for the Humanity of a Fellow-Prisoner, who has hitherto in a Manner supported him.
     His distressed Situation, he hopes, will plead his Excuse for this Application to the Public, imploring their Favour and Encouragement to his Assembly on the 23d Instant (at the Great Assembly Room in Fishamble-street, where Tickets may be had at 5s. 5d. each) which some Persons of Distinction have generously promised to countenance.
     MARRIAGES.] A few Days ago, Terence Egan, Esq; of Annameddle, in the Co. of Tipperary, to Miss Elizabeth O'Brien, Daughter of Matthew O'Brien, of Kilnashanly Esq.--At Sligo, Mr. Thomas Cockran, Son of Edward Cockran, Esq; to Miss Kitty Fitzgerald.--Mr. Robert Barker of Kells in the County of Meath, to Miss Aston, of Frederick-street.-- At Cork, Mr. Willis, Commander of the Echo to Miss Clarke, Daughter of Mr. Samuel Clarke, of Hammon's-March; and Mr. Williamson, Commander of the Duke of York, to Miss Lippers.-- Mr. James Ryan, Schoolmaster, aged 52, to Miss Polly Wall, of Thurless, in her 11th year.--Mr. John Farrell, Attorney, to the Widow Pickering of Sligo.
     DEATHS.] A few Days ago in Abby-street, Mr. Hugh Leatham, an eminent Grocer.-- The Wife of Capt. Johnston, of Stephen's-green.-- In Smith-field, Joseph Clarke, Gen.- and the Widow Murphy--On Ormond-Quay, the Wife of Mr. Thomas Brazill, Butcher.-- At Corke, Mr. William Budd, many Years Clerk of Christ-Church.-- In Ann-street near the Linen-hall, Mr. Plunket, an eminent Bewer.  Ballegilchrist in the Co. of Longford, aged 102. Mr John Reilly, a man of unblemished Character, and who retained his Senses to the last Moment.-- In Cook street, Mr. Nowlan, Vintner.
     It is with sensible Concern we give the following Article of melancholy News to the Public. Mrs. Green, Daughter of Mr. Forster, and Wife of Mr. Green, both eminent Brewers of this City; died at her House in St. James's-street, last Saturday Afternoon. As she was equalled by few, and exceeded by none, in the social Virtues, universal Benevolence and Charity, candid Friendship, filial Piety and conjugal Love more especially, her Death is lamented by all who knew her, but leaves the tender Father and faithful Husband inconsoleable. She bore a tedious and painful Disorder with uncommon Patience, and submitted to the last Shock with that calm Resignation, which must ever attend good Sense, Virtue, and pure Religion. So she lived, and so she died. "Go thou, and do likewise."
     The Twelve-penny Household Loaf is to weigh 10 Pounds 12 Ounces 06 Dramchs. The middle price of Wheat being at 2l. 0s. 6d.

    THE SUCCESS, Thomas Dunn, Master, now taking in Goods at the Batchelor's Walk, will sail the 25th of March next, full or not, (Wind and Weather permitting..)
     For Freight, apply to the Master, on the Customhouse-Quay; or to Messrs. Alexander Montgomery and Son.
