Bsiliiages, & c. to be - res d , wd publifh'd as ufual, Aberdan, Feb. 19. < Our Deliverance at laft- has been « wonderfully brought about, the whole of OUB Leyal Reiplg. ' - hereupon the Matter have been Prifonersthete \ Months; * they bad not Liberty to go one Mile cut of Town, without ' Acquainting tligRebei Mfigiftrafes, and Re; . Regency- that we bad ' here; all the Arms, Ammunition, & c. which t- hey had, the ' Rebels obliged them to deliver up, and then to give their Oaths that they had'no more. There was a Ccfs laid on us, ' which none of" the fave two Loyalitts would pay, till once- we ' got a Party to lie on us by free Quarters Bed andBoard. and ' half a Crown per Day to each for Wages ; ' and lb we could not fhift paying it unlets we had left our- Ho. ufes, '. and if we fail'd in Payment, were feverely threatned to ' be lent to the ' Camp, or to Dunnotter. Our Minirters f preach'd nine Sabbaths in two Barns ; nor durft any, of ' them allow anyone Perlbn to come to their HoulVs, tl^ re ' were fo ftri& Watches kept. Since the Pretender's Isndirg ' the)' wou'd not allow Miniiters to pray for King George, ' nor for the King in general Terms. ' Our Colledge is now broke up here, our Mailers'; wh » ' were for the Pretender, being now forp'd to abicond. The Matters of both Colledges are order'd to be taken up and ' put in Prifon. ' The Duke of Tinmouth is gone up to the Highlands, ' with his Aifociates. . ' On tlieir Thankfgfvibg Day latt for thfe- Pretender's lafe ' Arrival, there came 300 of the Inhabitants, together with ' jtho Colledge Boys, and broke all our Doors and. Window s ' where they wou'd not give them Peats for Bonfires. c There is not a* Epilcopal Minitter to lie feen in thete < Bounds, which could not be laid fince the Reformation till now. Edrnburg, Feb. 23. The Royal Anne Galley, Pearl, Port Mahon, De. il- CaftJe, and Phoenix, are return'd from cruifing. It appears by the Journal of Captain Stuait, that he had early lntelligent- eef the Pretenders having put to Sea from Mont role in a clean tallow'd French Snow, which row'doutof the Harbour and cloie in along Shore a good Way, with her Sails furl'd. The Port Mahon lay all that Night within two Leagues- of the Harbours Mouth, but ' twas fa very dark there was JO feeing a Ship a quarter- of a Mile aiftant. Captain Stuart and the Pearl were then off Aherdeen ; and when the Rebels march'd out of that Town, having Notice oftheir. battening Northward, and that Lord Tinmouth with i<; oFrench On - cers were contriving, to make their fcliape From Peterhead or Frazersburgh, he. immediately difpatch'd away the Pearl and illramx, with Orders to lie off thofe Places, which efle& u, ally disappointed them. He lay himfelf off Aberdeen till the' Duke of Argyle's Arrival there: The Wind afterwards blow- ing bard Southerly, he dii'pofed the Ships chiefly on the South Coaft of'Murray- Fryth, fent by the l^ eal- Caitie a Letter to the. Earl of Sutherland, to apprize him of the Flight or.' the Rebels, and to prepare him to receive them in cafe they fhould make a Pufh atlnvemels. He traced Tinmouth and his Afloeiates as. far as Port Sanv, where feeing a Ship of" War lying to intercept them, they defpair'dof Succefs on tha Coatt, and therefore they jojij'd the Clans on the icthlrrft, and took to the Mountains. All the Ships kept die Sea di- ligently, when Wind and Weather would'' Permit, andob- ferv'd tbeMotions of his Majefty's Army fo careful!}', that the Duke of Argyle did r. ot pais thro' any Pert- Town, with- out cut finding fome Ships ready to put in Execution any Ser- vice his Grace might have had to propoft. On tlie 21ft Sir John Jennings receiv'd Advice from the Lord Lofat, that a Velfel with the Pretender's Plate and other Goods on board, and a confiderable Sum of Money for his Ufe, had lately put into the Lewis, anA that many of the Chiefs of the Rebels Were making off to Skie and the other North weft Iflands: Vf'hereupr. he immediately order'd the Drake Sloop thither, with Inftru& iors to cruize about the Orkney's if the Winds Should then be contrary ; and by Exprefs, direfted Captain Stuart of the Aldborough to difpatch the Happy Sloop thi- ther, and to cruize himfelf with the Lively, for 14 Days, a- bout tbelfles of llay, Mull and Canney, to endeavour to intercept the Rebels, or any Velfels emplov'd for their Re- lief. { Edinburgh Feb.
