18. This morning several informations came on to be tried against Joseph Hazard and William Henry Shute, for publishing the Dublin scheme of chances, to be determined by the drawing of the present Dutch lottery, and also against Richard Bulkley and John Seal, for selling Irish vouchers, in pursuance of the said scheme, contrary to several acts of parliament ; of which they were all four convicted.

The committee appointed to take into consideration the repairing of London-bridge met at Guildhall, when the estimates of the expence were laid before them ; according to which it is computed, that the pulling down the houses on both sides, and rendering the bridge useful and commodious for carriages and foot-passengers, will amount to upwards of 40,000l.
