But the Prisoner utterly deny'd the Fact; and as to the single Handkerchief, she said it had been given her by a Cousin that came out of the Country. There being no better Proof, the Jury

<p>Kelson, Shaw, and Calson, three Watchmen, depos'd, That on the 30th of December last, at about 11 a Clock at Night, they going to enquire for their Master, the Constable, met the Prisoners in Drury-Lane in Company with one Mr. Moor, not yet taken, who seem'd to be in a very quarrelsom Humour; and that Mr. Moor said to them, What are you the Walking Watch? They reply'd, We are the Watch. He answer'd G - d d - mn you, You'll dance all Day long after a Gentleman to get a Pint of Drink of him. One of them replying, We ask nothing of you, Sir; he return'd, G - d d - mn you, if you did, I would sooner give you the Point of my Sword in your Guts shan Three Halfpence, and I would kill a Dozen of you for that Many, or Words to that Effect; upon which Mr. Winchurst reply'd, so would be too if he had a Sword.

That the Woman persuaded the Deceas'd to let the Watchman light him, to which he consented, saying he would give him something when he came to the Place where they were to go; whereupon the Watchman lighted him along.

Gentlemen, what do you mean? Why are you so uncivil? Why do you affront me and my Wife? and such like Language. And that without any other Prevocation, Mr. Winchurst cry'd out, Draw, Burder, draw, G - d d - n you, Burdet, draw, urging him so to do. And Mr. Burdet not drawing so soon as he would have had him, he made two Offers to draw Mr.Burdet's Sword; but Burdet having his Hand upon the Hilt of his Sword, did not permit him, but immediately drew it himself, presenting the Point two or three times toward the Deceas'd; who feeing Burdet's Sword drawn, also drew his Sword, and endeavour'd to put himself in a Posture of Defence as well as his present unhappy Condition would permit: Whereupon Burdet retreated 2 or 3 Yards back, flourishing his Sword, and then advanced with great Fury, running upon the Deceas'd, thrust him quite through the Body, bore him down backwards, and fell upon him, receiving at the same time a Wound on the Right side of his Chin by the Point of the Deceased's Sword.</p>

It is now at the first house on the Left-hand in Charlos Court in the strand near Hungerford-Market (in the same House where the Moving Skeleton is shewn. )</p>

<p>For the Good of the Publick.</p>
<p>WHereas several Gentlewomen and others of that Sex, in this Kingdom, have contracted an evil Habit of Body, wherein the vicious Humours, at first dispers'd thro' the Whole, come at length to be lodg'd in one Part or another, and many times, for Causes too long to be here mentioned, are thrown down upon the Womb, occansioning a dangerous Weakness in that Part, which being neglected, at lustturus Cancerous, and often proves Fatal. I cure the Diabetes when given over by all other Persons. This is to acquaint all such as may have occasion, that a speedy Relief is to be had from an Experienc'd Midwife, dwelling at the Sign of the Queen's Arms, a Watch-Makers, near Exeter Exchange in the strand, who perform'd a Cure upon a lady at the Bath, after she was given over by the Physicians, and since has Cured several Gentlewomen and others in the City and suburbs of London. I should not have put my self in Publick Print, but to satisfy the Afflicted where they may have present Ease and Relief.</p>
<p>To all Gentlemen, Ladies, and others, who are Lovers of Curiosities .</p>
<p>THE MOVING SKELETON, or the Skeleton of a Man, which performs such strange and wonderful Actions, that none can Credit, but those who have already seen it, to whom it has given a general Satisfaction. And that it may be less surprising to the Spectators, I have here Inserted its several Performances, which are as follow, (viz) 1. At the knocking at the Case in which the skeleton stands, the Door immediately flies open. 2. The Curtain which hangs before it gently draws up out of sight, which presents to your View, a Humane skeleton, with an Hour-Glass in one Hand, and a Dart in the other. 3. He first raises that Hand with the Hour-Glass, which has a few sands to run, and when those are spent. 4. He raises the other Hand with the Dart, and makes Three Offers with it, as if stricking at a Person. 5. He then opens his Mouth and Groans 3 times most surprisingly. 6. He then again with his Jaw, strikes the Hour past on a Bell. 7. He lets down his Hand with the Hour-Glass. 8. He lets down his Hand with the Dart. 9. A Pipe of Tobacco being put in his Mouth, he lights it himself. 10. He blows the Candle out and smoaks his Pipe as naturally as any living Person can do, till being gently mov'd with a Stick: upon which. 11. He immediately opens his Jaw for the Pipe to be taken from him. 12. The Curtain then falls down into its Place, and all is over. It is now to be seen at the First House on the Left-Hand in Charles-Court, in the strand, in the same House where the Wonderful Machine the Astronomical and Musical Clock is shewn .</p>
<p>At her House the Red Ball in Queen-street, Cheapside, near the Three Craners,</p>
<p>LIveth a Gentlewoman that hath a most incomparable Wash to beautifie the Face, which far exceeds all that are extant, as abundance of the greatest Quality have found by Experience, to their great Satisfaction. It takes out all manner of Wrinkles, Freckles, Pimples, Redness, Morphew, Sun-born, Yellowness, caus'd by Mercurial poisonous Washes : It also plumps and softens the Skin, making it as smooth and tender as a sucking Child's: The Young it always keeps so, and the Old it makes appear Fair and Young to Admiration. It has nothing of Paint in it, neither doth any Person know the Secret. You may have from Half a Crown to Five Pounds the Bottle. You may have Ponatums , White-pots, the like not to be compared with; also a Powder for the Teeth, which makes them as white as Snow. She hath a most excellent Secret to prevent Hair from falling, causing it to grow wherever it is wanting. She alters Red or Grey Hair to a delicate light or dark Brown in a few Days, which will never change. She shapes the Eye-brows, and makes them beautiful . She hath a delicate paste to whiten the Hands, and a Red Pomatum to colour the Lips, and prevents their chopping in Winter . She has a certain and insallible Cure for the Toothach , without drawing, that the Pain will not return. Note, Remov'd from the Cheshire-Cheese in Walbrook.</p>
