VENICE, June 13. An express arrived here last Sunday from the Chevalier Emo, with the particulars of the three last attacks upon Sfax ; according to which that town is almost entirely destroyed, and a vast number of the inhabitants killed.
UTRECHT, July 10. The herring fishery, it is said, brings in to the province of Holland alone three millions of florins annually.


It is said his Majesty means to review the fleet next month at Spithead, and that Lord Howe has received orders accordingly.
The East-India Company will have, by the conclusion of the present year, upwards of an hundred ships in their service, in carrying on the trade from Europe to India. As these ships carry on an average 100 sailors each, here is a nursery for 10,000 seamen.
Yesterday about five o'clock in the afternoon, five pleasure boats sailed from Blackfriars-bridge, for a silver cup and cover, given by Mr. Barrat, valued. at £25.-They were to sail within a cable's length of Putney-bridge, go round a stationary wherry, and come in at Vauxhall-stairs. The prize was with great difficulty won by the Prince of Wales cutter, the property of Mr. Condron.
The inhabitants of the world are supposed, according to the most probable calculations, to amount to about seven hundred and seventy-five millions and three hundred thousand souls.- Of these the arbitrary governments command seven hundred and forty-one millions and eight hundred thousand;· and the free ones (including ten millions of free Indians) only thirty-three millions, and five hundred thousand; and of these few, so large a portion as twelve millions and five thousand are subjects or descendants of the British empire : that is, upwards by some millions of the third part of all the free men in the world. On the whole, human slaves are three and twenty times more numerous than men enjoying, in any tolerable degree, the rights of human nature.
Several gentlemen, inhabitants of Bristol, have engaged to make up a purse from 100 to 1000 guineas, for the purpose of matching one Ward, a noted fighting butcher there, against the celebrated Johnson, who lately fought and conquered at Barnet. They have also sent a challenge to the latter, for the former to fight him when he pleases. Johnson accepted it, but desired to know in what manner they meant that Ward and he should engage, whether on the stage or on the turf. Answer to which was, "that as Ward gave the challenge, he left Johnson the choice;" whose friends have called a council of war on the occasion. By this the Bristol people not only seem confident in the success of their favourite, but have politely reduced boxing challenges to the etiquette of duelling.
Yesterday se'nnight the following melancholy circumstance happened at a sale at Boxford-mill, in Berkshire. Some bottles of different sorts of liquor being produced, one, which was supposed to contain wine from the brightness of its colour, was opened, and the contents handed to some of the company; four persons drank of it, all of whom were soon afterwards taken violently ill, and one of them, Joseph Benham, a butterman, died soon after; the other three continue in a most dangerous situation. The liquor was found to be a solution of arsenick, prepared for the purpose of poisoning rats.
Saturday last an over-driven ox ran from the Borough, and passing through St. George's Fields, crossed Westminster-bridge, from whence he went along Parliament-street, Charing Cross, Pall-mall, St. James's-street, Old Bond-street, and Berkeley-square, where he napped, and seemed at last, from excess of fatigue, to be quiet. Several persons, however, were tossed and dangerously gored by him. Miss Jefferies, one of the Maids of Honour to the Queen, was tossed by him in Old Bond-street, where a Mr. Kelly, foreman to a wax-chandler in Piccadilly, was killed. The beast ran at him with such fury, that he beat in two rails in the iron Pallisadoes, against which Mr. Kelly stood, fractured his skull, and shattered the whole frame of his body in such a manner that he expired yesterday morning. The lady is very ill through the fright, but happily received no hurt, though she lay prostrate on the ground, and the bullock walked over her. On his way down Hay-hill, he was interrupted by a coach, which he tore to pieces with his horns, so that the traces were obliged to be cut to save the horses. A rope was got over his horns in Berkeley Square, by which he was managed till driven home to the owner in Whitechapel. One child is said to be killed on the spot in Lambeth, and several others very much hurt.
The wretch, who some time since murdered the unfortunate Mr. Burt, surgeon, of Godstone, in Surrey, hanged himself a few days ago in the New Jail in the Borough.

We hear that same very strong measures are immediately to be adopted for the further prevention, if not total annihilation of smuggling. One of these is said to be, that every shipmaster must make oath, before the British Consul at the port where he loads, as to the contents of his cargo; and, in case this report does not correspond with the cargo when delivered, a very severe penalty is to be imposed, besides confiscation of the goods.

A correspondent wishes to caution the public, and in particular the unwary countryman, against the various frauds and deceptions beginning to be practised by the needy and artful LOTTERY ADVENTURERS in LONDON AND OTHER PLACES, against the drawing of the IRISH LOTTERY, and who the more securely and completely to plunder the public, employ tradesmen, &c. as venders in various country towns. Surely nothing but infatuation, or the extremest avarice, can induce reputable shopkeepers to be the tools of there miscreants.- Does not almost every town and village furnish innumerable instances of people who were duped last year out of their money for policies, &c. issued by men discharged from the hulks on the Thames, the King's Bench, and Fleet Prison, &c ?

Among the many acts of Mr. Pitt, there is perhaps none which is more incompatible with the dignity of the Statute Books, or which is more likely to excite the risibility of the gravest lawyer, than the late act for imposing a stamp duty on perfumery. The schedule annexed to it contains a most curious catalogue of scents, odours, perfumes, and cosmetics, and they are so whimsically arranged, that the framers of the bill must have been in a merry mood when they made their selection- Bear's grease and bergamot, pearl powder and peach kernels are blended with Cyprian washballs, and Olympian dew. But what shall we say of the immaculate Minister who can so far forget the delicacy of the female sex, as to subject to the inspection of the exciseman, Miss in her Teens Water!

This morning was determined before Dr. Calvert, in the Commons, the suit between Mrs. Inglefield, and Captain Inglefield, her husband, when the Lady's innocence being fully proved, the Judge pronounced a decree, that he should take Mrs. Inglefield home, and treat her with matrimonial affection.
