and occasioned the Magistrates to mako'a dili-
gent Search in all suspected Houses, and 2 Men
and a Woman were taken up on Suspicion, the
latter whereof made her Escape from the Con-
stables; but was soon after retaken, and com-
mitted to Gaol Yesterday. A Pen, Ink, and
Paper, were found in her Lodgings; which, to-
gether with her Indeavours to escape, confirmed
the Suspicion we had of her being guilty of
this ile Act. About 9 a Clock at Night he
was found dead, hanging in her Silk Garters :
We hear the Name of the said Woman was
Anne Brotherton, and that she was born of good
Parentage in Warwickshire; and also that her
Husband now lives at Evesham in the County
of Worcester, from whom she eloped some Time
ago, and hath since lived a loose and profligate
Life.

Similar nefarious practices form the news
supplied to The Norwich Gazette from
“ Glocester" and Deal. From London they
received an infallible Cure for the Bite of
a Mad Dog,” viz. :

Take 6 Ounces of Rue, cleansed, picked and

bruised. Four Ounces of Venice Treacle, Four

Ounces of filed Peuter or scraped Tin. Boil

these in Quarts of the best Ale, in a Pan

corered close, over a gentle Fire, for the Space

of one Hour; then strain the Ingredients from

the Liquor: give 8 or 9 Spoonfuls of it warm to

a Jam or Iloman 3 Jornings fasting, and cold

to any Beast fasting. Eight or 9 Spoonfuls is

sufficient for the Strongest, a less Quantity to

those younger, or of a weaker Constitution, as

you may judge of their Strength; 10 or 12 Spoon-

fuls for a Horse, or a Bullock; 3, 4, or 5 for a

Sheep, Hog, or Dog. This must be given within

9 Days after the Bite; and it never fails, either

in Man or Beast. If you can conveniently,
bind some of the Ingredients on the wound.

There is a note that “ A few Days since a
curious Busto of the Rt. Hon. Sir Robert
Walpole, done by Mr. Risbach, the famous
Sculptor, was sent to Sir Robert's Seat at
