T H E Edinburgh Evening Courant THURSDAY MAY 1752. " Mail from HOLLAND, LONDON GAZETTE, May 13. ROME, May 6. BY Advices from Constantinople we learn, that notwith- standing the Grand Seignor continues to persist inva- riably in thc Resolution of living in perfect Friendship with all the Christian Powers, yet he intends shortly to give Di- rections for putting the Places he possesses in Dalmatia in a proper State of Defence. The same Advices add, that the City of Constantinople is now almost as populous as it was before the late Plague, occasioned by the vast Numbers of Workmen of all Sorts who have been sent here by the Beglerbegs of the several Provinces, according to the Orders they received some Time ago from the Grand Vizier for that Purpose. COPENHAGEN, May 12. The King has caused a Placard to be published, by which his Majesty acquaints his Subjects, that his Ministers Plenipotentiary have concluded two Trea- ties of Peace, one 011 the 18th of December last with the Re- gency of Tunis, and the other on the 22d of January with the Bey of Tripoly, by which a free Navigation is secured for our Ships treading in the Mediterranean Sea. WHITEHALL EVENING POST, May 23. According to a private Letter from Bazil in Switzerland, the French have a finally encamped a considerable Body of Horse and Foot in the Neighbourhood of Besancon in Fran- che Compte; upon which the Canton of Bern has taken the Alarm, and issued the necessary Orders for encamping the like Number of Troops in their own Territories, which, as is very natural, occasions many Speculations. Last Sunday being Whitsunday departed this Life, after an Indisposition of many Months, occasioned by an infinite deal of Labour and Care in his Ministry, Christian Renatus, ( by birth Count of Zinzendorff and Pottendorff, and only Son of the prefent Ordinary of the Church, known by the Name of Unitas Fratrum) in the 25th Year of his Age. The sincere Tears of thousands, in this and other Coun- tries shed on this Occasion, will give the best Testimony of his Value. By a Letter from Ireland, we have an Account, that Or- ders have been given for searching the Houses of Roman Catholicks for Arms. A few Days since an Officer of the Army was broke, for challenging a Brother Officer, and behaving in an ungentle- man like Manner. An Example worthy of being followed! GENERAL EVENING POST, MAY 23. EXTRACT of a LETTER from AMSTERDAM, MAY 14. News have lately been here received, that the Bantams had supriz'd Batavia, and plundred some Quarters of that powerful City; but that the Troops of the Castle having fallen upon them, drove them out of the Town. We have yet no Particulars of this Affair. The Actions of the Com- pany have however fallen from 750 to 555. NAPLES, MAY 4 The Ruins of the antient City of He- raclea incessantly afford some thing new and curious. There has lately been found amongst them an Urn of three Feet and a half high, of very fine Marble, as white as Alabaster. The Delicacy of the Bas Relief together with the Simplicity of the Ornaments, proves the Antiquity of the Work, and shews it the Production of the flourishing Ages of Greece. VIENNA, May 17. The Court has received by a Courier from Madrid, the Treaty which was signed with regard to Italy, which has been communicated to the Earl of Hynd- ford. _ The Treaty of Aix la Chapelle is thereby confirm'd. in respect to what concerns the contracting Parties. The Succours which they should respectively furnish, in case of Necessity, for the Defence of those Possession, is regulated, viz. the Empress Queen, 6000 Men; the Emperor, as Grand Duk of Tuscany, 60oo Men; the King of Spain, 6000 Men; the King of the Two Sicilies, 6ooo Men; and the Infant Duke of Parma, 1600 Men. ,. RATISBON, May 22. The Affair of East Friesland makes a great Noise in the Diet; the King of Great Britain, as E- lector of Hanover, having desired that it should be taken in- to Consideration, the Diet has for some Days past proceed- ed thereupon. The Minister of Brandebourg, pretended that this Affair should have been previously communicated to him, has made a very strong Protest against the Diet's Pro- ceeding: The Consequence of this Affair fixes thc Attenti- on of the Publick. BERLIN, May 23. The King has received from his Mi- nister at Ratisbon, a circumstantial Account of the Delibera- tion which was begun there, in regard to the Affair of East- Friesland, and of the Protest which he has made upon that Subject. His Majesty has sent him fresh Orders, which can- not fail of rendering this Affair greatly interesting, and wor- thy the Attention of the Germanick Body. HANOVER, May 23. The Minister of this Electorate at Ratis- bon has sent to the Ministry an Account of what has passed in Relation to the Affair of East- Friesland, with the Protect of the Minister from Bandebourg; Whereupon Orders have been diSpatched to that Minister, how to further conduct him- self in the Pursuit of that important Affair. LONDON. From Paris we are told, that the Court has issued Orders for encamping several Regiments in Franche Compte, that they must first be exercised in the Method lately introduced, and afterwards according as the Situation of Affairs in Ger- many may require. Yesterday the India Company received Advice of the Ar- rival at Dover of the Onslow, Capt. Hinde, from Bencool- en; and thc True Briton, Cart. Bradley, and the Lord An- son, Capt. Fowles, from China. They left St. Helena tho 23d of March; when the Essex, Capt. Jackson, from China, was to sail in a few Days after for England. Some private Letters by the above Ships say, that the Dutch some time since took two Proas belonging to the English, on the Coast of Sumatra; and lately a Sloop with a Quantity of Dollars and valuable Goods on board. As that Coast is open to All, we must suppose these Fellows to be Pirates; as supe- rior Strength is the only reason they give for such Actions, and as we think our good Allies would not countenance such Proceedings. It is added, that a sufficient Number of Men are employed to repair the several Forts on that Coast belonging to the Bri- tish Settlements. The Men of War and Sloops now on the Coast of Ireland are ordered to be victualed, and to continue there till further Orders. Yesterday, at Eleven o'Clock, the Rev. Mr. Whitefield arrived in Town from the Orphan- House, South- Carolina. EDINBURGH. The following Letter containing some Particulars of - Murder of Colin Campbell of Glenure, Esq; was written by a Brother of the deceased, to a Gentleman in Aberdeen, his near Relation: TAINDROME, 18thMay 1752. " SIR, I am this far in my way to Argyleshire, to pay my last Duty to poor Glenure, who on Thursday last the 14th current was shot dead in Appin, by some of the Stew- arts, from behind a Bush, as he was riding home, near the House of Ardshiels. The Person suspected of the Murder, is one Allan Breck Stewart, a French Cadet, who was in Appin at the Time. He is about ; Foot 10 Inches high; his Face much marked with the small Pox, black bushy Hair put up in a Bag, a little in- knee'd, round shouldered, has full black Eyes, and is about thirty Years of Age. He is dressed much like a French Cadet, shabby, with an Inclina- tion to be genteel. It is possible he may disguise himself, and in all Probability endeavour to take Shipping on the North- east Coast from Aberdeen, Montrose or Dundee;. Pray be upon the out- look, and send to your Friends along the Coast- sfide, the above Description, which I hope will find . him out, tho he may assume a borrow'd Name. . All the Firth of forth is appris'd of this Matter, as is the Clyde." Sunday last died Miss Nisbet of Craigentinay, a young Lady just come of Age, and Heiress to a handsome Fortune. On Tuesday the Commission of the General Assembly sat down, and took under Consideration an Appeal by William Urquhart of Meldrum, Esq: Patron of the Parish of Cromar- ty, from a Sentence of the Synod of Ross, affirming a Judg- ment of the Presbytery of Chanonry sultaining a Call of the Parish of Cromarty to Mr. Patrick Henderson to be Minister of that Parish, and thereafter proceeding to his actual Settle- ment there; and after hearing Parties, and reasoning at great Length on the Affair, agreed without a Vote to delay the Consideration of the Merits of the Presentation and Call till their Meeting in November. And after further Reasoning, it was agreed to put the Question, Whether to proceed to consider the Conduct of the Presbytery of Chanonry in settl- ing Mr. Henderson, or delay the whole Affair; and it carri- ed, Proceed: Then another Question was agreed to be put, Reverse the said Settlement, or not, and it carried Reverse by a Majority of one Vote; whereupon the Commission re- versed the Sentence of Synod and Presbytery of Chanonry, with respect to the Settlement of Mr. Henderson at Cromar- ty, and declared it void and null, without Prejudice to the Merits of the Cause. And that Evening the Commission affirmed without a Vote, the Sentence of the Synod of Galloway, appointing the Presbytery of Wigton to proceed to the Settlement of Mr. Samuel Brown to be Minister of Kirkmabreek, according to the Rules of the Church. And Yesterday the Commission agreed, without a Vote, to ap- point a Committee to deal with all concerned, and particu- larly with the People of the Parish of Biggar, in order to bring about a peaceable Settlement for Mr. Haig to be Minister of Biggar, and report to the Commission in November. They write from Kirkaldy, that a Woman was lately ta- ken into Custody there for Child- murder, but was indulged the Use of a Bed in a private House till she recovered, and was watched by two Women, from whom she found Means to escape.
