Hell upon earth: or the town in an uproar. Occasion'd by the late horrible scenes of forgery, perjury, street-robbery, murder, sodomy, and other shocking impieties. Of the Encrease of the Hempen Manufactory and the Decrease of the Woollen Manufactory; shewing that Goals and Gibbets are become as useful as Guards and Garisons, and Pillories as necessary as P-ns. Of Peoples being almost under the Necessity of carrying Pistols instead of Prayer-Books to their Parish Churches. A surprizing Account of the Numbers of People who Live by preparing and vending Liquors, and of those that Die by drinking them: With the vast plenty of Diseases and Doctors, and the great Scarcity of Physicians. An Account of Fox-Hunters, Peace-Hunters, Money Hunters, Men-Hunters, Whore-Hunters, Death-Hunters, Levee-Hunters, News-Hunters. Of the Subscribing Coffee-Mens pretty Project for printing their Customers Prittle Prattle. Of Lady B-is Necessary House being broke open and robb'd, as published in the Coffee-Mens Paper, with the strange Effect it had on a Scotch Subscribing Coffee-Man's Wife, who refunded her Breakfast upon reading the Relation.
