     The Sufferings of John Byrne a Sawyer in Winetavern-street, who was lately treated in a most barbarous Manner, by a great Number of Persons unknown, on Account of his having refused to join with the Journeymen Sawyers, in an unlawful Combination, to raise the Price of Labour, and cause Disturbances in this City, having been represented to his Excellency the Earl of Northumberland, his Excellency, out of his great Wisdom and Humanity, and to disappoint the wicked Intentions of those who by their cruel Usage had reduced this poor Person to Want and Misery; has been pleased, by an Act in Council to grant a Warrant for the immediate Payment of thirty Pounds, to the said John Byrne, for his Support, and as a Reward for his Conduct, which Sum, we are informed, is to be continued to him yearly. It is not doubted, that this very judicious and compassionate Attention of Government, in the Distresses of an unhappy Object, suffering in such a Cause, will encourage all others to abide by and obey the Laws, and not to yield to the unlawful Solicitations or Threats of any such daring and lawless Confederates.
     Saturday last the 26th Instant, the following Gentlemen, in the name of the Guild of Merchants of this City, waited on the Right Hon. Sir Charles Pratt, Knt., Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas of England, at his Lordship's House, in Lincoln's-Inn-Fields, and presented him with the Freedom of said Guild in a Gold Box, viz.
     Mr. Travers Hartley, Mr. Wm. M'Murtrie, Mr. Henry Bevan, Mr. Peter Smith, all of this City Merchants.
     They were received very politely by the great Judge, who expressed his Sense of this Mark of the Guild's Approbation of his Conduct.
     Mr. Henry Rippingham, is promoted by the Dean of St. Patrick's to the Place in the Choir, vacant by the Death of Mr. Brett.
     On Thursday the 31st May, an accidental Fire broke out in a Stable adjoining the Warehouse of Mr. Sylvester Mathews, Linen-Weaver in Thomas-street, whose Loss thereby in Linens, Cottons, &c. amounts to upwards of eight hundred Pounds.
     As he is an honest industrious Man, with a large Family, it is hoped that the Charitable and Humane will take his Case into Consideration, which may prevent an useful Member of Society and so considerable a Manufacturer in our Staple Article of Trade from falling to Ruin, which must be a Loss to the Public.--Thomas Read, Esq; Rob Montgomery, Esq; Messrs. Wm Montgomery, Anthony Dermott, John Pim Joshua, Wm Alexander, and Edwin Thomas, will receive Benefactions.
     A few Days ago Mr. Murphy, Attorney, was married to Miss Fanny O'Hara of the Inns-Quay.

UNDERTAKES to cure any smoking Chimney whatever effectually, that has the common Draught. No Cure no Pay.- He communicated to the late Mr. Brett (who gave Satisfaction to those who employed him) what Knowledge he had in that, and was said Brett's principal Operator.

     Cork, June 14. We hear from Clonmell that a Dispute having arose last Week between Capt. B_r_n of the Army and Mr. _____ W_____h of that Town, they resolved on deciding it by a Duel, at an appointed Place in the Country, where they accordingly met, and each Gentleman discharged a Pistol. One was hit on the Instep, which broke the Buckle in his Shoe and the other had a Ball pass through his Skirt and Coat Pocket, on which the Seconds interfered afresh, and happily prevented further ill Consequences by reconciling the Parties.
     Tuesday Morning was married at Rathcooney Church, near this City, William Perry, of Woodruff in the County of Tipperary, Esq; to Miss Nancy Pedder, Daughter of Belcher Pedder, Esq;
     DEATHS.] In Bowling-green-street, Mr. James Guitton, who for some Years had retired with Reputation from the Sea-fearing Life. - In an advanced Age, Mrs. Atkins, Relict of the late Alderman Atkins, one of the People called Quakers. - Suddenly Mrs. Budd, Widow of the late William Budd, Clerk of Christ-Church Parish.


     Last Wednesday Examinations began in our University for the two Fellowships vacant by the Promotion of the Rev. Doctor Hugh Hamilton, to the Professorship of Natural Philosophy in the University; and Mr Graydon deceased. The following Gentlemen went in as Candidates, Messrs. Day, Connor, Usher, Kearney and Fitzgerald. On Thursday Mr. Connor being taken ill, he discontinued the Examinations. And Yesterday Messrs. Usher and Kearney were declared Fellows.
     Last Saturday being Trinity Eve, the Boys educated &c, in the Royal Free-School founded by King Charles the IId. in Queen-street, O?mantown, according to an annual Custom, walked in Procession, to the Tholsel and thence they preceded the Rt. Hon. the Lord Mayor, Sheriffs, &c. to Christ-Church, where an occasional Sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Morgan. They afterwards returned in like Manner to the Tholsel, where each Boy received a Saffron Cake and a Glass of Wine, a Bounty given by the Guild of Merchants. The pretty Appearance made by such a Number of Children, being about 170, (the Sons of reduced Citizens) in their new Cloathing afforded a pleasing Prospect of their future Utility to the Community, which consequently must attach every beneficent Spectator to their Interests.
     The Report of the late distinguished Captain Campbell's being promoted to the Rank and Place of the late General Conway, is premature; For, though that illustrious Gentleman has given a strong Instance of uncommon Valor, in calling a Commander of signal Fortitude and equal Honour and Integrity, and Englishman too, to a Court-Marshal, he has not yet been positively named to any of the lately vacated military Employments; nor is it certain that he has an actual Promise of the Reversion of any of those soon to be vacated.
     Friday, June 15] General Fitzwilliam's Regiment of Horse and the Regiments of Foot commanded by General Hodgson, General Lord Forbes, General Carr, General Brudenell, and Colonel Owen, were reviewed in the Phoenix-Park, by Lieutenant General Fowke; they all made a fine Appearance and went through their Evolutions and Firings with the greatest Regularity, to the entire Satisfaction of the General and all the Officers present.
     Saturday, June 16. A silver Cup was stolen out of the Window of Mr. M'Clean in William-street.

     MARRIED.] A few Days ago, Theophilus Bolton, Esq; to Miss Margaret Lyons, Daughter of Charles Lyons of Ladystown in the County of Westmeath, Esq; - Mr. Thomas Highland to Miss Nancy Norman, both of the Crampton-Court. - Counsellor Blakeney, Nephew to the late Lord Blakeney, to Miss Gertrude Smith, of Kildare-street.
     DIED.] A few Days ago, at Mallow in the County of Corke, the Reverend Henry Smyth, D.D., Archdeacon of Glandelagh, a Dignitary of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dubliln, Prebancy of Donoghmore in the Cathedral of Limerick, and Rector of Kilteely, Newcastle and Monegay in said Diocese in Limerick - At Corke Cap. James Guison, Master of a Vessel in that Port. - Dame-street, Mrs. Hannah Judd, one of the People called Quakers.
     The Play called, The Merchant of Venice, will be performed this Evening at the Theatre in Smock-Alley; Shylock by Mr. Macklin, Launcelot by Mr. Shuter; with a Farce called Lethe; the Characters of Lord Chalkstone, and the Old Man, by Mr. Shuter. To which will be added the following Entertainment of Dancing: End of Act the Third, A Comic Ballet, called, Le Marriage du Village; End of Play a Grand Ballet Dance, called La Provencalle; by Monsieur Duberval, from the King's Theatre in the Hay-market; and Signora Manaficre, from the Theatre Royal in Convent Garden.

     It is much to be wished, that some of our Grand Juries would take into Consideration the Stumbling Blocks that are of late put up, instead of Posts, in the principal Streets of this City. Posts to guard the Foot Passengers from Carriages and Cattle are set up in Streets and Highways, in ever well regulated Country. In England the whole Posts or the Heads of them are painted white, that they may afford the better Direction in the Dark. They are always made three Feet high, at the least, as a Person must be hurt less by coming with his whole Body against a tall Post than railing over a short Stump. Regardless of these Considerations, it is now the Fashion to set up little angular Stones about a Foot high. And even some, who have had Stone and wooden Posts before their Houses, have cut them down to the Model and Size of these Stumbling Blocks, by which Carriages and Foot-Passengers have in the Dark suffered many irksome Disasters. Why may they not be prevented as Nuisances?
     The great Increase of wheeled Carriages in this Kingdom would afford a pleasing Reflection in this City, did it not seem that the Coachmakers, claimed a Right to engross whole Streets and Lanes so much to themselves, that several of the widest Streets are greatly obstructed, and some of the narrower quite blocked up by Carriages, new or old, standing before Coachmaker's Doors. This is an Incroachment which loudly commands the correcting Hand of the Magistrate.
     It is said by Travellers, that this is the only City in Europe, where the Rebuilders of Houses are permitted to annoy all the Passengers, as well as the Inhabitants of a Street, by throwing down Bricks, Stones and Rubbish in the open Street. They go still further Here, and spread out Brickbats, Stones, and old Mortar, to be ground by Carriages into the Dust, and then screen it, perhaps in windy Weather to the extreme Prejudice of all the Neighbourhood, or if Rains come on, a great Part of this pounded Rubbish is carried into our River, to render the Navigation as difficult as a safe Passage through the Streets. The Laws have provided against all these Evils if the Magistrates would but execute them. In all well regulated Cities, the Undertakers of Pavement before their Houses, to receive all Rubbish, as well as all Materials for Building; so that the Neighbourhood feels but little, and Passengers less Inconvenience from the building and rebuilding of Houses. What Pity it is, our Magistrates do not, Go and do likewise!
