156 YEARS AGO. (Extracts from the "Courant" Nov. 28,1749.) Last week some worthy English nobility and gentry discharged their French valets and other servants upon a complaint that they were assisting in attempting to over-awe the audience a few nights ago at a certain theatre in the Haymarket. A laudable example and which it is to be hoped will be followed bv others. So many of our disbanded soldiers and others are in want of bread and would be glad of such employ. 4. On Sunday m'ght last a man being in liquor at a public-house in Putney and very abusive was sent to the Watch House; and a woman of ill-repute that had been with him carried him some hot-pot and a candle: upon receipt of which he swore he would burn his way out. and accordingly set fire to the Watch House, which burnt him in such a manner that he expired on Monday about noon in great agonies. The constable who had the key 01 the"Watch House was gone to bed.
