The Evening Poft. Numb. 973. From Saturday Oftober 29 to Tuefday November 1. 1715. Since our laft arriv'd two Mails from Flanders and one from France. From thi Paris A- la- main. Paris, Nov. 6. fcHE Regent is examining the Books of M. Bernard, to fee how much Money he has fent abroad, and by whole Order. His Royal Highnefs has alfo fent to the Senate of Venice, to demand an Extraft of the Names of fuch Frenchmen as have ________ Money in their Bank. There is much Talk here of a Jefiiite call'd Father des Mottes, who preach'd lately at Rouan in Defence of the Pope's Bull, and againft' the Regent; whom he accufes of be- ing a Favourer of Janfenifm. The Governor of Rouan has fent to his Highnefs the Informations, and the Decree, which • was pad againft that Preacher, by the Official and the Lieu- tenant de Police. The Populace were going to fet fire to the • Jefuites College, but were hinder'd by the Lieutenant de Police, who told them, it did not belong to them to revenge . an Aftion of that Nature. Berwick, OA. 25. Two Letters from the Earl of Mar have been intercepted : One of them is written tothe Lord of Kenmuir, the other to Mr. Forfter: Copies of which are as follows.) My Lord, ILong extreamly to hear from you, you may be fure, fince I have not had the leaft Accounts almoft ol your Motions, iince I lent the Detachment over. I hope all is pretty right again, but it was an unlucky Miftake in Brigadier Metolh, in marching from Haddingtoun to Leith. I cannot but fay though, that it was odd your Lord/ hip fent no Orders or In- telligence to him, whsnyou had Reafon to expert that Par- ty's coming over every Day. His Retreat he made from Leith, and now from Seatoun, with the Help of the Move- ment I made from this, makes fome Amends for that Mi- flake; and I - hope that Party of Men with him will be of great Ufe to you and the Caufe. I wilh you may find a Way of fending the inclos'd to Mr. Forrefter, which I leave open .. for your Lordfhip to read ; and I have little further to fay to you th.-. i: what you will find in it. I know fo little of the Situat<%' cf your Affairs, that I muft leave to your felfwhat is fit for yau to do, as will moft conduce to the Service, and I know you will take good Advice. My humble Service to all Friends with you, particularly Brigadier Metolh, Lord Nairn, Lord Charles Murray and . Metolh, who I hope are joyn'd you long e're now ; and in- deed the)- all deferve Praife for their gallant Behaviour. I muft not forget Kinackin, who I hear ipoke fo refolutely to the Duke of" Argyle from the Citadel; and I hope Innercall and all my Men with him are well, and their Countrymen long to beat them, which I hope they and we all fliall foon. I have fent another Copy of the inclofed to Mr. Forrefter by Sea, fo it will be hard if none of them come to his Hand. I know your Lordfhip will endeavour to let me hear fron » you afToon as poffible, which I long impatiently for; and I hope you will find a Way of fending it fate. In one of my former, either to your Lordlhip or to fome body to fliew yeu I told that a Part ofthe Army would be about Dumbartoun ; but now you will not rely on that, for till I hear from Gene- ral Gordon, I am uncertain if they hold that way. I hare fent your Lordlhip a Copy of my new Commiffioh, - which perhaps you have not feen before. I have named the General Officers, and your Lordlhip has the Rank of a Brigadier of the Horfe. I am told E. Wintoun has been very ufeful to our Men W5 fent over. I fuppofe he is now with your Lordfiiip, and I beg you may make my Compliment to his Lordfhip, and I hop: the King will foon thank him himfelf. I will trouble your Lordfhip no further now, but all Suc- cefs attend you, and may we foon have a merry Meeting. L am with all Refpejft, My Lord, Your moil: Obedient and From the Camp at moft Humble Servant, . Perth, Oct. 21.1715. MAR. From the Camp at Perth, OH. lift. 1715. SIR, IWrote to you of the 17th from Auchtera- rdice, which I hope you got. I marched the fame Night the Horfe to Dumbkine within 4 Miles of Stirling, and the Foot fome Miles fhort of that Place. Next Morning I bad certain Intelligence of the Duke of Argyle's returning from Edin- burgh with moft of the Troops he had carried there, and was on their March towards Sterling : I alfo had Account of Evan's Regiment landing in the Weft of Scotland from Ireknd, and were on their Way to Stirling I had come away from Perth before our Provifions were ready to go with us, and I found all the Country about Stirling, where we were to pafs Forth, wasintirely exhaufted by the Enemy, fo that there was nothing for us to fubfift on there. I had no Account from General Gordon, aslexpe& ed, and the fooneft I could expeft him at the Heads of Forth was two Days after that, and I could not think of paffing Forth rill I was joined by him. Under thofe Difficulties, and having got one of the things I defigned by my March, the Duke of Argyle's withdrawing from our Friends in Lothian, I thought it lit to march back to Auchterardice, which was a better Quarter, tho' not a good one neither. Next Morning, I got Intelligence of the Duke of Argyle's bring come to Stirling the Night before, and that he had fent Exprpfs upon Exprefs to Evans Dragoons to haften up. I hacC. a. Eetter alfo that Morning from General Gordon, telling me that fome things had kept him up longer then he expefted; that it • would be that Day ere lie could be at Inverary, and that he could not poffibly join, me this Week : Upon this I thought it better to return here, which is a good Quarter and wait his coming up, and th: Lord Seaforth's, than con- tinue at Auchterardice, fince it would not a bit retard rriy palling the Forth when I fhould be in a Condition to do it, and in the mean time I could be getting Provifions ready- to carry along with me in my March, which as I have told arc ab- folutely neceffary about the? Heads of forth : So I cams home laft Night, I very I very much regret my being obliged to this for many Reafcns, particularly becaufeof its keeping me fo much tbe longer from joinisg you ; but you eafily fee it was not in my power to help it. However,' I hops my Stay here ftiall be very fhort, and you may depend upon its being no 1 anger than it neceffaril v muft. The Paffage over tbe Forth is now fo extreamly difficult, that it is f.- arce poflible to fend any letters fthat way; and within thefe two Days there was two Boats coming over with Letters to me, that were fo hard purfued, that they were obliged to throw the Letter into the Sea ; fo that I know very little ofour Friends on that Side, and lefs of you, whi: h is no fmall Lofstome. I heard to Day by word of Mouth, that the Detachment I fent over are marched and joined our Friends in the South of Scotland, fo I hope they may be yet ufefui ; but I hope you know more of them than I do. I have now writ to Lord Kenmure, but it. is ten to one if it comes to his Hands. I. know not what he is- doing, where he is, or what way he intends to difpofe of his People; whether he is to march into England, or towards Stirling, to wait my paffing Forth; and in the Ignorance lam in of your Affairs befouth the River, I fcarce know what to advife him. If you be in need of- his Afnlianie in England, I doubt not but you have called hi;- n there ; but if not, cer- tainly his being in the Rear of tbe Enemy, when 1 pais Forth, or now that the Duke of Argyle is reinforced, fhould he • march towards me before I am, it would be of great Service. I am forced in a great meafure to leave it to himfelfto do as • he finds moft expedient. I am afraid the Duke of Ormond is not as yet come to England, elfe I fhould have had the certainty of it one way or other before now. I caBnot conceive what detains him nor the King from coming here. However I am fure it is none of their Fault; and I. hops they will both furprize us agreeably very foon. I believe 1 told you in my Eft of the Lord Strathmore and 200 of ths Detachment that were going over Forth, and drove into the Illand of May by 3 Men of War, being got fate ailiore on this Side, and are now join'd us again. There were but two of all the Boats taken; and; I hear fome ofthe Men that were in them, who were made Prifoners in Leith, were relieved hy our N'en when they canv there, but tliat their Officers were fent to Edinburgh Caftle ; fo I want fome Reprizals for, them, which I tx> pe to have^ re long. Tho' Brigadier Metofh's Mrftake- in going to Leith, was like to be unlucky to us and them, yet it has given the Duke of Argyle no little trouble; and our March obliging him to let them flip, has, I am apt to believe, vext him. I beg ycu will find ibme Way to let me hear from you. Ever fir. es my Detachment were in Fyfe, all the Men of. War that cruiz'donthe North Coaii, betwixt Peterhead and ths Firth, have been in ths Firth, and I believe will continue there, to prevent my lending more over that Way; fo all that Coaft is clear, which I wilh to God the Ring knew ; and you may eafily fend a Boat hers any where with Letters from England. 1 hear there is one of the Regiments of Foot from Ireland come to Stirling. When you write tome, if hy Sea,. pray fend me fbme News- Paper, that I may know what the World is a doing, for we know little of it here thefe 8 Days. Succels attend you ; and 1 am with all Truth and Efteem, Direftdd thus, To Mr Forrcfl r with ta: 1 tug's Fore. s in Kcunuuiberland. Sir, Your moft Obedient, Humble Servant, • AR^ R JR. From tbe Scots Corffmt, 0S. 54.^ Edinburgh, 03. 74.

Hy an Exprifs come this Morning from Sterling we have tbe following Neves. UPon Sunday the 23d Inftant, the Duke of Argyle having Advice that a Party of the Rebels, confiding of 200 Foot and 100 Horfe, were marching by Caftle- Camobel to- wards Dunfermling, his Grace immediately fent off a D- taeh- mer. t of Dragoons, under the Command of Collonel' Cath- cart, who came up with the Rebels on Monday at Five a Clock in the Morning, at Dunfermling ; and after having kill'd and wounded feveral, he took 17 Prifoners, 11 whereof are Gentlemen, and are brought into Stirling.
