I T i; very obfervable, that there is a Public- hou'fe in every Ward in this City, which, till very lately, had the Three Tons for its Sign ; v,here you may at all Times find a Company cf lober Citizens, who are well verfed, not only in Parilh, Ward, and City Affairs, but in the Affairs of Government; and who fcru- tinize, handle, and digeft Matters in a very ;uft;and improving Manner 1 But thisRoafting Office is the Meridian, this is the only Place of •nerring Judgment, and orthodox Conclusions ; this is the grand Refervoir and Diftributer of News foreign and domeftic : Here the polite Arts and Sciences are taught and explained, not in the ambulatory, peripatic Manner of the. Ariltotleians, but in the lolling, lounging Manner of the Epicureans. Here are Deputies and Wou'd-be Deputies, Common-council-men and inferior Citizens," down . to your humble Servant; fo that nothing in Art or Nature can ef- cape fuch a fevcre and juft Criticifm and Deci- fion, but that the Teft or Criterion of them are certainly found out by one or other of us. We can eafier (in one Night's Time) fettle the Affairs of the Nation over a Pipe of Tobacco and a Pot of Porter, than the K— and both Houfcs c an do in a whole Seffion with all their Delicacies; and as our Debates and Decilions may be 0 f the utmoft Importance to the Nation, I mall, by the Help of your.

Charles Dingley was exprefsly accufed in • Pamphlet (which has fince been proved-tKr contain many Falfehoods and Mifre- prefentatjons) of tampering with Mr. Freeman, to procure a City Addreis. To which Charge he anfwer'd under his real Signature and denied the Truth of it. Mr. Cotes then charged him anew wi:h making the like Applications to Sir Robert Lidbroke, Sir James Hodgef, and Mr. Deputy Ellis; to which Charge he replied in the fiilleft Manner, and to the Satisfaction of every candid Reader. But on reading what fhould have proved to you fo' very fatistaflory, you immediately fent to an Evening Paper the following Qwies, which on the very fame Evening they fubjoined to his Reply ; and to which I fhall now anfwer. Q ^i. " What was the Motive of your enquiring of Mr. Freeman, when the Chairman of the Commoncour cil could be fpoke with i" Anfwer. What is that to you, or any Man in the-World ? Who has a Right to enquire what Bufinefs one Gentleman has with another ? Are you authorifed to fay I was to pro- pofe an Addrcfs? If you are, publifh theAc- cufation under your real Name-. If not, your Queflion is extremely impertinent. Q^a. " Was there, or was there not, any Intention of Attempt, directly or indireclly, to procure an Addrefs from the Common-council to his M-- , on the Subjeft of the late Change in the Adnvaiftratibn l " Anfwer. Where is the Candour of putting fo general a Quellion as no one Man can take upon himfelf exprefsly to anfwer ? Mr. Ding- lev had directly anfwered fa,tisf<c'torily to the Charges on himfelf, and therefore ftands ac- A remarkable Infiance of ALGERINE AVARICS and INGRATITUDE. I T is cuftomary for Matters of Veffels, whoi trade to Algiers with frefh or dried Fruits-, Sweet Meats, and the like, to make Prefents of fome to fuch Turks as can forward hi 5 Bufinefs. Every Voyage he makes thither afterwards, thefe Turks importune him-for, and infift upon» the fame Quantity, though he has then no occa­ fion for their Intereft. This they call'afking the Ufage. To fuch a Height do they exercile this ridiculous Demand, that nothing fhould be given them, but with a Salvo for the Time to come^ . In the Reign of Haggi Chaban Dey, a Greek Merchanr, who refided at Algiers, ufed almoft every Year to make a Voyage to Tunis' or Egypt,_ retailing hfs Cargo. A Countryman of his dying left him his Executor, and among other pious Legacies, a certain" Sum for charitable Ufes- One Day the Merchant patting .by a Moor, who was fitting in the Street, upon a Piece of a Matt lame and almoft blind, afked Charity of the Merchant: He was the more inclined to give becaufe of hrs Induftry in making Thread .Laces, being incapable of other Work. He dropt him his handful of Afpers, which unufual Sight ib tranfported tbe Beggar, that he followed the Merchant upon his Crutches,, calling out upon Heaven* to fhowerdowu its Blefungs upon him. He told all he met with, how exceeding bountiful that Chriftian had been to him for the Love of God, at which they were fo pleafed, that they all joined in his Commendations, faying, That ia an excellent Perfon indeed; his Charity extends beyond his Se£l. The Beggar did not leave followjng his Benefactor till he difcovered -bis Houfe, and afterwards took Poft in a Place where the Merchant muft daily pafs-by hint. Next Day the Moor begs his Charity, and the Greek repeated ir, which" gained him great Reputation and a Crowd of Cuftomers. The r Mahometan Friefts were.not wanting to cry tip • the Reward whicn God had given to this charitable Greek, who finding the Sweets of a 'Charity, which coft him nothing, continued his daily Benevolence till the Time of his Departure for Egypt. ' The Beggar ftill kept his- Poft, but milling his Benefactor, he made Enquiry after him, and had the Mortification' to- hear that he was out of the Kingdom. When the Clerk pafTed by he ufed to lift up his Hands and pray for his Mailer's happy Return ; which happened five or fix Months after. TheBeg- gar was overjoyed ro fee him, 'and when the Merchant, in return for his Compliments, was going to beftow his Charity on him, declined it, faying it was better to pay him all his Arrean at once. The Greek told him he did not know what he meant by Arrears. To which the other replied, that he had been ab r ent near fix Months, and eonfequently that there were about eighty Rials due. The Greek did not know whfiHier the Fellow's Impudence deferved molt to be laughed at or chaftifed •. But the Moor laid his Complaint before the Dey, and the Greek Merchant was lent for to make lib D. fence. The Moor alledged that the Merchsm had, for the Cor.u- nuance of a whole Month, daily given him * Rial; but that this Charity had greatly, ir- creafed his Cuftomers, and been a Fund or Riches. And that as to himfelf, upon fuch a daily Income, he was very glad to leave off working, which was very painful to him, having almoft loft his Sight; that the Merchant went away without giving him the leaft Notice that his Pen/ion was to ceafe ; that he had ftilh kept his Poll, praying to God for Wis Return » befides, that relying on his accuftomed Liberality, he had contracted fome Debts for his Support ; but upon demanding his Arrears, the Merchant had laughed at him, and threatened him. The Greek did not difown the Truth of the Premifcs, but infilled that Alms bfing a voluntary Action, its Continuance depended upon the Will of the Donor. After a Djfcuf- fion of the Affair in Council, tbe Merchant was condemned to pay the Beggar a Rial for every Day fince his Departure to the Day of the Decifion, with a Piafter over and above; as a Compensation for his Reproaches. But withal empowering him to declare that very Inftanr, that it was his Intention never to give him any Alms or Graruity for the Time to come. This the Merchant many Times protelled, adding, that fuch a Sentence would not foon be forgot. Printed by H. S .
