- THE WHITEHALL EVENING- POST; O R, L O N D O N INTELLIGENCER. THURSDAY, J U L Y 31, 1746. No 72. Published every T U E S A Y, early in the Evening. From tbe LONDON G A Z E T T E. Vienna, July 23, N. S. cOUNT Brown, having left the King of Sardinia with the Remainder of the Com- bined Army to guard the Trebia, was, on the 21st or 22d, to pass the Po at Arena, and the Lambro, at or about St. Columbino, with a Com- bined Body of sixteen Au- strian, and fourteen Piedmon- - tese Battalions, three Austrian and three Piedmontese Regiments of Cavalry, and a thousand Irregulars ; - while General Roth, with a Body of twelve Austrian Battalions, two Regiments of Horse, and some Hus- sars, was to operate about Soncino, Orci Novi, and Orci Vecchi, upon the Oglio, and from thence to the Adda, in order to join Count Brown, and to invest the Spaniards which are at Lodi, Codogno, Fombio, Guarda Meglio, & c. during which Time . General Nadasti was to be posted at or about Fioren- zulo, upon the Emilian Way, with about eight thou- sand Hussars and regular Cavalry. At the Camp at Borckloch, July 27, N. S. Since my last, of the 24th Instant, our Army has made two Marches, the first to Sandhoven, and the second to this Place; we halt To- morrow, and then proceed toward Namur, and hope to be in time for the sa- ving of that Town. We have taken Possession of Arschott, and Lewe, whilst the French possessed themselves of Halen and Diest. Their Army re- mains behind Louvain, where they are assembling all the Force they can ; whether with a Resolution to attack us, or in Expectation of being attacked, two Days will determine. At the Camp of the Allied Army at Viler, August 3, N. S. Count Daun has been detached ever since the 26th with Ten thousand Men upon our Right flank ; General Trips, with a Corps of Hussars and Pan- dours, is advanced a little March from him upon his Right Flank. And Baronai with another Corps and our Free Companies, is half a March in the Rear of Count Daun, upon his Right Flank also ; every Party of the Enemy that shews itself is attack- ed, and generally with Success. The ist Instant we passed the Mehaigne in six Columns, and marched in Order of Battle, the Cannon at the Head of each Battalion, and encamped our Right at Wasseige, our Left towards Longechamp and Ostin, Count Daun between Athe and St. Germains, General Trips at Athe, and the Pandours advanced to St. Denis; Count Lowendahl was then at Judoigne with Four- teen thousand Men ; Count Clermont between that and Tirlemont with Ten Thousand, Fifteen hundred in Gemblours, the French Grand Army still behind Louvain, raising Redoubts, & c. They are called Eighty thousand, and the whole is believed to be One hundred and thirty thousand Men. An Hour after our Arrival on this Side the Mehaigne, the Marshal had Advice that Count Lowendahl had marched to Gemblours and Sombref with all his Corps; that Marshal de Saxe, by very forced Marches, was come from Louvain to Conroy and the Seven Stars; and that the Prince of Conti had made a Detachment from Charleroy to reinforce him. Upon this, our Corps de Reserve was immediately ordered to march to support Count Daun ; and Prince Charles, with the other Generals in Chief, went the next Morning with all the Grenadiers to St. Denis, about a Mile from Count Lowendahl's Body, to see if it was possible to attack him ; but they found him covered by the River of Gemblours, Woods, and large Redoubts, at which they had worked all Night, and also supported by Count Saxe's whole Army, and therefore the Design was not practicable. Charleroy has surrendered in less than three Days from the Opening of the Trenches before it. The Enemy are now within Sight of us at the strong Camp of Gemblours, and the Prince of Conti at Fleurus. A Battery is to be planted this Night to dislodge them from the Castle of Mazy. Namur is out of all Danger of being besieged. Yes- terday Morning the Hussars took 60 Men and 5 Officers Prisoners, and killed 40. Another Party killed 300 French Pandours, Deserters from our Ar- my and brought into St. Denis also another Party of 40 Swiss, taken within Musket Shot of the French Camp. Hague, Aug. 2. N. S, By our last Accounts, Prince Charles's Head Quarters were on the 29th past at Warem, near Liege. We hear that the French have sent off all their heavy Baggage to Brussels. This Step, and the Position of the two Armies, raise the greatest Expectations of the next News from that Quarter ; though the Return of the French King is not fixed till the 10th Instant. Letters of the 19th past, from the Austrian Army upon the Po, confirm the Junction and joint Commands having taken Place on the 16th ; and add, that every Thing was pre pared for entering upon Action ; two Bridges having been thrown by his Sardinian Majesty over the Po be- low, and two above Placentia Our Advices from Paris say positively, that the Brest Fleet and Tran- sports are sailed for America. Hague, Aug. 5. N. S. The Letters of the 23d past from the Combined Army upon the Trebia, speak of the Preparations still continuing for its passing the Po; and fix the 25th ditto for the Execution of it. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. RussiA. Petersburg, July 12. iT is said that the Activity and Success of r j^ i approaching Diet of Poland will de- pend chiefly on the Negociations of the Count de Vitzhum, who is coming hither with the Character of Ambassador - Extraordinary. All that we know concerning the Imperial Army assembled in Livonia is, that the Cavalry have Fo- rage only to the End of July, and that Orders have been given to exercise frequently all the Corps, both Infantry and Horse, that compose it. M. D'Allion having lately received a Courier from Versailles, we are assured, he has told our Ministers, That his ' most Christian Majesty has been much surprised to ' hear, that according to the general Report, the ' numerous Troops which the Empress has assembled ' for fome Time past, upon the Frontiers of Poland, ' were designed to act offensively against France, in ' favour of the Courts of Vienna and London, not- ' withstanding the repeated Declarations of his Mi- nisters, concerning his Majesty's Disposition to ac- cept the Mediation offered by Russia for an Accom- ' modation, while the Courts both of London and ' Vienna had absolutely refused to listen to her Im- perial Majesty's pacific Intentions.' It is not yet known what Answer was given to this Minister; but we are persuaded, that whatever may be the Resolu- tions of the Court, they were not taken till after mature Deliberations, and will not be departed from, whatever Representations may be made to the contrary. GERMANY. Franckfort, July 27. The Empress Queen has caused Representations to be made to the associated Circles, by her Minister in this City, that as new Circumstances may accrue, wherein the French Troops may re- enter the Empire, it seems to her necessary, for the Good of the Germanic Body, to agree, that if in such Case any one of the Circles [ PR ICE THREE- HALFPENCE. ] should be attacked, the other Circles shall immedi- ately repair to its Defence, with all its Power. Af- ter some Deliberations upon this Matter, it was de- creed that the Circles should mutually assist each other on all Occasions, wherein any one of them might be attacked or insulted by any Foreign Power whatsoever. To the AUTHOR, & c. SIR, THE Nation in general, at the breaking out of the Rebellion, discovered such a becoming Zeal in Favour of the present Royal Family, as plainly declared it to be contrary to the Desire and Senti- men's, not only of the best, but the greatest Part of the People, the Clergy too have given laudable Instances of their Zeal and Attachment to the present Established Religion and Government, in their Dis- courses against Popery from the Pulpit. It is not therefore unnatural to imagine the Success which has attended his Majesty's Arms, to be a Consequence of that extraordinary Unanimity so visible in the Na- tion, when the Plague of Rebellion first broke out; and to attribute to that Means the happy Extinguish- ment of the Rebellion, and the present Tranquility to which the Nation is restored. But there are some things remain untouched, necessary to be put in Practice, which seem to have escaped the Notice of those who have written against Popery, during the Troubles which have lately infested these Kingdoms. The Devil has always been represented as very active and diligent to seduce Mankind from those Practices which are laudable, and to entice them from the Pursuit of commendable Actions ; for this Reason our Divines warn us always to be upon the Watch, that we may guard against him with all pos- sible Dilgence. The Pope of Rome, in Imitation of that wicked Being, has his Emissaries in every Corner of the Earth, operating upon Men's Minds, and seducing them to enlist under the Banner of the Church of Rome ; and, like the Devil's, his Agents appear in all Shapes, so that many poor Wretches are frequently betrayed without discovering the clo- ven Foot. In this Town there are Numbers, whose Business is making Proselites, and are as active in their Business, as the Ministers of Hell ; Jesuits, some in Mechanic Garbs, some in the Shape of School- masters, some in various Dresses at various Times; and others who scruple not to exercise their proper Function, and endeavour after Converts at Noon- day. Many Families entertain them knowing- ly for the sake of keeping a good Lodger, others for no Reason at all ; by this means they mix with the People and communicate their infectious Principles to half the Community : And to this may be attri- buted the Growth of Popery in this Nation, more than to any other Cause. If they know a poor Crea- tere in Want, they frequently relieve him with Bread, and often visit the Sick ; thus while they administer Comfort to the Bodies, they pour Poyson into the Minds of those they pretend to assist If such Men as these are suffered to go on at this Rate, I do not know what ill Effects might not be expected from them. But more especially to have them mix with our Schools and Seminaries, has something so abomi. liable in it, that our Language has not Terms to ex- press it with sufficient Detestation and Horror. Besides the Pains taken by their Priests, People of the Romish Perswasion are extremely assiduous in promoting the Temporal Advantages of each other; this, added to the Artifices of their Teachers, affords them, not only a greater Probability of gaining Pro- selites, but a surer Method of securing themselves from any Attempts made by Teachers of other Pro- fessions to convert them, these are Instances of In- dustry, which the Ministers nor People of the Esta- blished Church can pretend to. HHI— IHHHi since then neither the Ministers nor the People of Church of England are so strenuous in maintain- ing their Ground against the Popish Invaders of their the latter are to invade; nor so indu- strious to increase the number of the Church, as the : :... :. of the Church of Rome are to multiply ; the Consequence will be, that the Pope in Time acquire the Superiority of Number, and s0 effect that through our own Indolence, which he could not do by open Violence. I am Sir, yours, & c A. B. SHIP NEWS. Deal, July 28. Sailed Yesterday after Post his Majesty's Ships Faulkland and Amazon, on a Cruize ; and this Morning the Fox Man of War on a Cruize.

The Alice, Dagg;, from Virginia at Bristol The Expedition, Macfarian, from Virginia at Hull — The Seine, —-, from ditto, at Clyde, To the AUTHOR, & c. SIR, WHEN Men have aCted overtly against the Laws they have sworn to live under ; when they make their Sovereign's Life and Crown, the Property and Liberty of a People, the Stake of the Game ; ( if I may so express it;) and when they mis- carry in such a violent Attempt, and are taken in open Arms; a Man who should utter any mild or softened Expression in their Favour would almost be deemed a Rebel, and an Enemy to the Constitution. But I earnestly hope the Reader will put a more fa- vourable Construction upon what 1 am going to say. When the Lords Kilmarnock, Cromartie, and Bal- merino, were brought Yesterday to the Bar of the House of Lords, the first spoke near twenty Mi- nutes ; the second spoke, but not to be heard so di- stinctly as the former ; during which time his Heart was so big with Sorrow and Shame, that he could scarcely go on. I do not add the Word Shame out of any ill- natured Reflection ; I have as much Companion for the poor unhappy Gentlemen, as any one can have, who loves his King and Country. But Lord Kilmarnock spoke very audibly; he took Notice of his Misfortune in being deluded from his Allegiance to his Majesty, to follow the Cause of the Pretender; of his having always been, till this un- happy Instance, a loyal and faithful SubjeCt ; and enforced this Assertion by shewing, that he had trained up his Son, who was in the Battle of Cullo- den among the King's Troops, in the Revolution Principles ; that he had taught him to imbibe them while he was very young, and he thanked God ( this was his Expression) that, unhappy as he was, he had lived to see them put in Practice, and had been an Eye Witness of the good Effect of his Endeavours. When he came to this Part of the Speech, my Heart melted for him, and he must have an extreme good, or an extreme bad one, that could have withstood this moving Part : And I am thoroughly convinced that there was no one in Westminster Hall who did not with, either that they were innocent, or that he could make Interest for their Lives without being thought an Enemy to his Country. For my Part, I was touched with Abundance of Companion for them, though I knew those very Men. were engaged in the most desperate Cause, ever attempted in the World, by any Set of People. Their Hearts were full of Cruelty, and their Designs the most bloody that Man's Imagination could frame. When I think of this, Pity towards them, is Cruelty towards the King's good Subjects, and a Man can wish for no- thing more hurtful to the whole Community, than a Pardon to those who would have involved the whole in Ruin. However, I shall conclude by saying, that their Looks moved a kind Compassion, and that they behaved with extreme Decency. I am, & c. Z. Y. LONDON INTELLIGENCE. Advices from Ratisbon, dated the 22d of July, in- form us, that Baron Kayserling, the Russian Minister, has sent to the Ambassador Director of Mayence, his Credential Letters written in Latin, of which the following is a Translation ! Elizabeth, by the Grace of God, Sovereign Empress of all the Russias, Muscovy, & c. ' Most dear and noble Friends, assembled at the Diet of the Empire, having judged it necessary to to send you our Privy Counseller, Herman Kay- serling, in the Quality of Minister Plenipotentiary ; It is our very earnest Request, that you give a fa- vourable Attention, and entire Credit, to all with which he is charged on our Part; especially as we shall always recommend it to him in a particular Manner, to give your Assembly the most positive Assurances of our Attachment and unalterable Af- feCtion for the EleCtors, Princes, and States of the Germanick Body. Furthermore, Wc pray the Al- mighty, most dear and noble Friends, to have you in his Holy Protection. Done at Petersbourg, the 23d of Sept. 1745. Your good Friend, ELIZABETH. Alexis Count de BestuchefF Rumin. Letters from Gap in Dauphiny say, that a great Number of Soldiers continually arrive there in their Rout for Lyons ; that great Quantities of Provisions are amassed for the Use of this Army; and that Peo- ple are driven out of their Houses to have them con- verted into Magazines; from which Use the Church has been with Difficulty exempted. These Letters add, that the Church may still be doomed to that unhal- lowed Use, since Provisions are continually carried in- to the Town, and no convenient Room to lodge them. Letters from Paris say, that the Dauphiness finding herself very ill the Night after she was brought to Bed, and the Fever increasing, the Physicians ordered her to be bled feveral Times in the Arms and Feet, but her Disorder growing continually worse and worse, she received the Sacraments, and expired soon after. The Dauphin is said to have been troubled so much for the Loss of the Dauphiness, as to throw him into a flight Fit of Illness ; but that, by being bled, he is pretty well again. Letters from Paris dated July 25 say, that an Ex- press arrived there the Day before, with an Account of the Death of Queen Stanislaus The Swiss are alarmed at the mighty Armament going forward in Russia, and have accordingly rein- forced several of the Frontier Garrisons. However the Ruffian Minister gives them new Affirmations from Time to Time, that they have nothing to fear from that Quarter. Notwithstanding the Assurances the New King, Ferdinand, of Spain, has given his most Christian Ma- jesty of continuing to use the same Measures with the late King his Father; penetrating Politicians say, that these Assurances are nothing but an EfFeCt of that Courtliness very frequent with Princes, and seem to be positive, that his ACtions will not be so favourable ' to the Schemes of France as his Promises intimate. We hear that both Houses of Parliament will cer- tainly rise some Day next Week. And that the Earl of Kellie and the Lord Lo- vat will not be tried till the Meeting of the Parlia- ment again. On Monday his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales went to Kew to Dinner, and returned to Leicester House at Night. Very great Interest is making for a Pardon for the Earls of Kilmarnock and Cromartie, who pleaded guilty on Monday last. We hear by Letters from Deal of the 27th Instant, that his Majesty's Ship the Fox, Captain Shirley, had brought in thither two Swedish Vessels, which he had taken going into Dunkirk, and that they were ordered to Dover to be examined. There is Advice, that two Privateers of New York, have taken on a Cruize two Prizes, one of them a small Sloop laden with Provifions, the other a Spanilh Ship bound for the Havanna from Cartha- gena. The William and Sarah, Captain Crisp, with a Brigantine, commanded by Capt. Jos. Stevens, from New England for Jamaica, are both taken, and carried into Porto Rico. Yesterday the Lord High Steward went in grand Procession to the House of Peers in the same manner, as mentioned in this Paper on Tuesday last After which the Lords in their Robes went in Pro- cession to Westminster Hall, and having taken their proper Places, and Proclamation made for Silence, the three Lords were brought to the Bar, with the Ax carried with them. After which the Lord High Steward made a learned Speech for near half an Hour to them, and concluded it with asking them, It they had any thing to move in Arrest of Judgment, who all kneeled at the Ear, till they were told they might rise. Then the Earl of Kilmarnock being asked, If he had any thing to move in Arrest of Judgment; after making an elegant Speech, said he had nothing to offer, but humbly to implore their Lordships Inter- cession with his Majesty for Mercy. The Earl of Cromartie did likewise the same. The Lord Balmerino was asked the Question, If he had any thing to offer in Arrest of Judgment, and he desired Council may be assigned him, to assist in making his Defence ; which was granted accordingly, and Mr Wilbraham and Mr. Forrester were assigned him as Council. \ The said three Lords are to be brought up again Tomorrow. There is Advice, that three Spanish Galleys, each being of considerable Force, bound for the Havanna, have in their Passage from Cadiz, taken several Prizes belonging to the American Colonies ; three of them are said to be very rich. By Letters from the West Indies by the last Fleet arrived, there is an Account, that two Privateers from Hispaniola are taken by three Privateers fitted out for that Purpose by the Planters, & c. in the West Indies. A Treaty of Marriage is concluded, and will shortly be consummated, between Peter Leheup, Jun. Esq; of St. James's Place, and Miss Lehook, Daughter of Benjamin Lehook, an eminent Merchant, deceased ; a very agreeable young Lady, with a large Fortune. Yesterday Sir Everard Fawkener, Secretary to his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, and Tho- mas Wyndham, Esq; Treasurer to his Royal High- ness, came to Town from Scotland. On Monday Night a Person of Distinction, of Scotland, was brought to Town in Custody of a Messenger. It is said that a Person of Quality has very suddenly disappeared. On Thursday about 18 Highlanders arrived at New- castle in their Way for London, to be Evidence in the Trials of the Rebels at St Margaret's Hill. On Monday last the Right Hon. Hugh Lord Clin- ton was introduced into the House of Peers, by the Earls of Warwick and Sandwich, and took the Oaths and his Seat as Earl Clinton The fourth and last General Seal, which was ap- pointed to be held at Lincoln's Inn Hall, before the Lord High Chancellor as Tuesday, was put off till this Day. Last Week four Landsmen challenged four of the best Watermen belonging to Shadwcll Dock Stairs, to row sixteen Miles for four Guineas; the Wager being laid, the Watermen fearful of being beat, forfeited the Money to their great Shame and Dis- grace. Yesterday the Court of Directors of the East India Company, appointed the' Rev. Mr. Joseph Burges, to be Chaplain at Bencoolen in the room of the Rev. Mr. Fordyce, who is removed to Fort St. George. The same Time Capt. Nathaniel Hancock, Com- mander of the Norfolk, took his Leave of the said Court, in order to procecd immediately on his Voyage The Names of the Persons reprieved at the New- Goal are Charles Deacon, Christopher Taylor, James Wilder, Thomas Furnival, Alexander Abernethy, James Gadd, William Battragh, John Saunderson; the other Nine, viz. Francis Townley, George Flet- cher, James Dawson, Thomas Deacon, John Berwick, Andrew Blood, Thomas Chadwick, Thomas Siddall, and Thomas David Morgan, were executed Yester day Morning at Kennington- Common. A little while before the Rebels went from the New Goal, Charles Deacon ( whose Execution is respited for three Weeks) begged to speak to his Brother Thomas Deacon, but he desired to be ex- cused from the Interview, not from any ill Will, but from a thorough Tenderness, knowing it was partly by his Persuasions that he had been drawn into the Rebellion. Between Nine and Ten o'Clock, they were carried • from the New Goal, Souihwark, in the following Manner, viz. First, a Party of Dragoons, then a large Party of the Foot Guards followed by the three Sledges, in the first of which were Francis Townley, John Berwick, Andrew blood, and the Executioner with a drawn Scymetar; in the second, Thomas David Morgan, Thomas Deacon, and Tho- mas Siddal ; in the third ; James Dawson, George Fletcher, ard Thomas Chadwick, surrounded by the Foot Guards , who also brought up the Rear. When they came to the Place of Execution, they were all put into a Waggon, and the Faggots for burning their Hearts, Entrails, & c. were immediately set fire to When they had passed some Time in Devotion, they desired to speak to each other by themselves, which was granted ; the Discourse continued near a Quarter of an hour with great Earnestness and De- votion, at the End of which they all flung their Hats ( six of them were laced with Gold) Prayer- Books, and some papers, among the Spectators, on which the Executioner pulled their Caps out of their Pockets, and putting them on, drew them over their Eyes, and they were immediately turned off. When they had hung about three Minutes, the Soldiers pulled off their Breeches, Stockings, ( which were all white) and Shoes, and soon after the Executioner pulled off their Cloaths, and their bodies being ripped up, their Bowels were taken out, and flung into the Fire. There were present the greatest Number of Specta- tors as ever was seen together in the Memory of Man, some thousands of whom had waited in the Rain several Hours to see the Execution of these unhappy Men. The same Morning Charles Deacon now under Sentence of Death in the New Goal, Southwark) was carried in a Coach, guarded by a Party of Sol- diers, to see the Execution of his Brother, and the other eight Rebels, on Kennington Common. We hear that the Head of Thomas David Morgan is to be fixed on Temple Bar; the Head of James Dawson on the Market Cross at Manchester ; and the Head of Francis Townley on the Castle of Carlisle. It was observed at the Execution of the Rebels Yesterday, that having no Clergyman to attend them, Counsellor Morgan performed that Office, by reading and praying with them before they were turned off Several of them gave the Executioner Money, and one in particular a Watch. Fletcher, who was executed among them, was so desirous in engaging in the Rebellion, that we are assured he gave 150I. for his Commission. Townley, after he was cut down, stript, and laid on his Back to be quartered, being observed to have some Signs of Life in him, the Executioner ( being the same as at Tyburn) gave him a Blow with his Hatchet on the Head, and dispatched him before he cut him up. On Tuesday a Scotch Earl, said to be the Earl of Traquair, was taken into Custody at Great Stoughton in Huntingdonshire ; he is now under the Care of Mr. Ward, one of his Majesty's Messengers in St. Martin's Lane. It is reported, that upwards of twenty Persons are impeached for being concerned ia the late Rebellion, and that several of them are sent for up to Town in Custody of the Messengers We hear that some of the Persons lately taken up called themselves a Committee for raising Money in Town for the Pretender's Service. The Golden Fleece, Captain Brown, bound for Carolina from Jamaica, is lost a few Leagues off Charles Island near the Island of Cuba ; the Captain and Part of the Crew were saved, and carried into the Havanna, and are since come in a Cartel Ship to Ja- maica, for an Exchange of Prisoners. Yesterday the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor held a Court of Conservacy at Greenwich, and afterwards dined at Blackheath. We hear, that a noted Chief's Steward in the North of Scotland has been taken Prisoner in the Isle of Sky, for lodging the young Pretender in his House ; and though the Steward has been heavily loaded with Irons, and urged strenuously to confess where the Pretender now is, he positively refused it. ' Tis said the young Pretender is in miserable Plight, forlorn, and obliged to take up with any mean and dirty Lodging. it is reported for certain, that six Rebel Chiefs are taken in the Isle of Sky, and that Sullivan is dead since taken. PREFERMENTS. On Friday last the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Ely presented the Rev. Mr. Thomas Talguy, A. M. Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge, to the Rectory of Hagworthingham in the County of Lin- coln, void by the Promotion of the Rev. Mr. Robert Johnson. 4 A few Days since the Rev Mr. Gibfon, Son of the Bishop of London, resigned his Prebendary of St. Paul's, in Favour of his elder Brother, who was im- mediately inducted into the same. CASUALTIES, Last Sunday the Son of an eminent Tradesman in Cheapside was unfortunately drowned near Windsor, by endeavouring to save his Companion who had been washing himself in the River. And on Tuesday a Coal Heaver, not far from Rat- cliff Cross, stepping out of a Lighter upon the Plank, and having, unfortunately for him, conveyed a large Coal into his Great Coat Pocket, the Weight of it kept him down, so that he was drowned before he could have any Assistance. COMMITMENTS Last Week was committed to Bridewell, on the Complaint of the Overseers of the Poor of the Pa- rish of St. George, Hanover- Square, one Thomas Brown, for fraudulently obtaining money of them by a false and counterfeit Pass, which he confessed was drawn and forged by one Edward Griffith We hear from Hereford, that on Thursday last was committed to their Goal, one.

SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, July 24. Captain Millar writes from South Ulst, that he was in close Pursuit of the Pre- tender, who had made his Escape to the Island of Sky, and from thence to the Main Land in Lady Clanro- nald's Cloaths Our Army is in a Line betwixt Inverary and Fort William, and 2000 Men scouring the Hills. Yesternight Lieutenant General Hawley arrived here from the Army. from Perth, that Semple's, Wolf's, and Pulte ney's Regiments lying there, are to march from thence for Kinghorn the latter End of this Week ; and to embark on Monday the 28th. On Tuesday was brought up from the North, James Wemyss, Ship master, and is committed to Prison. Last Night David Fitzgerald, who was committed to the tolbooth for Forgery, made his Escape from thence, in Disguise. fort Augustus, July 17. It is publickly reported here that the young Pretender had passed over from the Isle of Sky to the main Land in a Woman's Dress, as Attendant to a Lady who passed over with him ; and that he had made his Escape into the Mountains: But that the Lady was taken by a Man of War's boat in her Passage back to the Isle. What Reality there is in this wc cannot determine ; but we are assured that a strong Detachment was sent from the Camp towards that Country, where he was said to have landed, in quest of him. Seven Regiments of Foot and King- ston's Light Horse are still in Camp here, and four Regiments of Foot at Inverness. On Friday arrived at Stirling, with Lord Lovat in his Litter, Howard's ( Old Buffs) and Cholmondeley's Regiments of Foot; and on that Day Wolfe's Regi- ments of Foot came to Perth. Extract of Letter from Aberdeen, July 14. ' Yesterday Sir Archibald Primrose of Dunipace, ' was brought in Prisoner. There was another gen- teel young Man brought along with him ; he tells us he is a Gentleman, but won't tell who he is.— Sir Archibald's Servant was brought.. They are all yet in the Guard- House, ' till they are ex- amined. POSTSCRIPT. LONDON. WE hear that Dr. Barry, who is now in Custody, has made very considerable Dis- coveries, and that he has received Money for the Pretender's Use. There is a Report this Morning, that L— d B — r e is taken into Custody. A few Days ago died at Twickenham, . , Hunt, Esq; aged 72, as also his Wife aged 70, and are both buried in one Grave. New Tickets to permit Gentlemen and ladies to hear the Trials of the Lord Balmerino, & c. To- morrow, will we hear be printed, and to be delivered as the former, on Account some of the last Tickets being disposed of Yesterday to some Perfons who begged them, they thinking that the Trials would have been ended as that Day; and it is said those who got them, sold them at Half a Crown each. His Majesty's Ship the Lyn is got into the Downs from the River. We have it from undoubted Authority, that Lord Lovat set out from Berwick last Friday Morning, the 25th instant, and that he is to come one Stage a Day, so that it will be the 18th of next Month before he arrives in Town, it being 25 Stages from Berwick to London He is guarded by Major Gardner, and a Detachment of sixty Dragoons At the Execution Yesterday the Prices of the Scaffolding run so high, that the Mob finding Seats be- yond their purchase, took Possession of them by force and turned down all those who had paid great Prices for their places. We have it from pretty good Hands, that Original Letters and Papers are, and will be brought to light through the means of Mr. Murray the young Pre- tender's Secretary., This Discovery is made on Con. dition of Mr. Murray having his Life granted him ; and will afford great helps to find out many of the private Instruments of this unnatural Rebellion. We are credibly informed, that D'Argenson has sent a second Letter to our Court, the Particulars of which we cannot learn, though the general Import concerned the pardoning Capt. Townley. The Letter arrived on Tuesday Night, but Townley found no Benefit from French Intercession. Since the foregoing Paragraph was inserted, we are informed that a Commissary brought the above Letter to demand Townley in exchange on the Cartel, he having pleaded his having Commission from France; but this Demand was treated with suitable Contempt, as such a Compliance would be a sufficient Motive to encourage any dissaffected Sub- jects to rebel, when Traytors can come off with Im- punity.
