Monday, Dec. 24.

Yesterday morning the following accident happened at lady Pakington's, at Perdiswell, near Worcester. H-r ladyship's two postilions being in the servants hall, where a gun happened to lie upon the dresser, one of them casually took it up, not imagining it was charged, and handling it in a careless manner, it suddenly went off, and instantly killed his fellow servant John Cot field. The coioncr's inquest have brought in their verdict accidental killing by misadventure. And on Wednesday the servant, in whose hand the gun went off, was committed to gaol, io order to be tiied at the next assizes. Tuuda Y, Dec. 25.

This being Christmas-day, and an high festival, there was a brilliant court at St. James's, when the knights companions of the most noble orders of the Garter.Thistle, and Bath, appeared in the collars of their respective orders.

On Saturday last in the afternoon, a sailor accidentally ran against a potter in Threadneedle Street, which the latter resenting so far as to strike him, though the other had very civilly asked his pinion for it j a battle ensued, in which the porter falling with his head against a stone, he fractured his skull, and unfortunately died on the spot. The sailor not being the aggressor, the populace suffered him to make his escape.
