From SATURDAY October 11, to TUESDAY October 14, 1746. Since our last arrivd the Mail from Holland. Genoa, 0ct. 1. wE are still in a dismal Condition here, and continually employ'd in raising Money to satisfy the vast Sums granted to the Im- perialists by our Capitulation. Several Perfons of the first Fa- milies in our Republick are actually withdrawn, having had the Precaution to send away their most valuable Ef- feCts, while that was a Thing practicable. The Marquess de Botta behaves very civil- ly, and, in some RespeCts, kindly to us ; but he has, some way or other, involv'd himself in two very trou- blesome Quarrels; one with the King of Sardinia, about our Capitulation ; and the other with the English Com- modore, about some Ships taken, bound for this Port, after it was in the Hands of the Empress Queen. It was for some Time believ'd, that his ConduCt would be in- ' tirely justified by the Court of Vienna. The contrary Sentiment now prevails, and we are positively told, that he will very speedily quit the Command of the Ar- my, under Pretence of going to visit his own Estates. The Ducal Palace of Milan is preparing for the Recep- tion of Prince Charles of Lorrain, who is to reside there with the Title of Vicar- General, and Commander in Chief in Italy. He is to have under him Prince Lich- tenstein, who, with 55, ooo Men will be employ'd in the Conquest of the Kingdom of Naples; and General Brown, with 2.8,000 Men, will act against the French, an ConjunCtion with the Piedmontese. We have this Day advanced, in the Whole, two Millions out of three, and the Austrians press very hard for the rest. Berlin, Oct. It begins to be very perceptible at pre- sent, that our Court is not at all satisfy'd with the Conduct of that of Vienna, in Reference to the not pro- curing the Guaranty of the Empire, and of another Power, for the Dominions of his Majesty, agreeable to the Treaty of Dresden. The not fending General Bernes hither, has likewise given great Offence, for People now begin to doubt whether he will come at all, more espe- cially since it is known, that the Austrians are about to assemble an Army in Bohemia under Prince Lobkowitz, and, as some say, another in Moravia, under the Com- mand of old Field- Marshal Count Traun. Vienna, Oct. 18. The Field Equipage of Count Traun is preparing with all Diligence, but it is not said with what Design. General Bernes is not yet set out upon his Embassy, nor is it said when he will. Though the Treaty lately concluded between this Court and that of Russia has not yet been made publick, we have never- theless seen Extracts of it, whereby it appears, that it was concluded for 25 Years : That each Power engaged to supply the Party attacked, upon the first Requisition, with 20, ooo Foot and 10,000 Horse, and to encrease this Succour as Occasion should require: That our Court would be excused from this Engagement, in Case Russia should be attacked by the Persians ; as on the other Hand, the Empress of Russia should not be obliged to send Succours into Italy : And that the Republick of Poland, the Electors of Saxony and Brunswick, as well as other Powers, should be invited to accede to this Treaty. Dusseldorf, Oct. 18. We have receiv'd Advice by Express, that on the 9th Instant the Piedmontese forced a Body of 2000 French and Spaniards, which was en- trench'd at Ventimiglia, and that after this Action the King of Sardinia continu'd his March towards Villa Franca and Nice. Lipstadt, Oct. 18. By Letters receiv'd here from the Body of the Hanoverians and Hessans engaged in the Action of the nth, we hear, that the former estimate their Loss at about 2ooo Men, and that the Regiments of Maidel and Boselager were entirely ruined ; that those of Donep and Mansbach, of the Hessian Troops, suffer'd extremely, and that 500 Men of the former were taken Prisoners ; that the young Prince of Isen- bourg, and several other Officers were made Prisoners, and that Major de Malsbourg was killed. Louvain, Oct. 17. It's assured that Marshal Saxe has receiv'd Orders to detach 16 Squadrons and 22 Bat- talions for Britany, who, it is assured, will embark upon the Coast of flanders, in order to arrive there the sooner. Tho' the French remain'd masters of the Field of Battle on the nth, and oblig'd the Allies to retreat, it is certain that they had 8 or 9000 Men kill'd on the Spot, and that the Number of the Wounded at least equall'd that of the Dead: In short, they write from Tirlemont, St. Tron aad Tongres, that all the Convents of these Towns, as well as the Churches without Ex- ception, have been made Hospitals, and are as full as they can hold of wounded Men, and that besides many are put into private Houses. It's assured that this Affair, together with the Detachment that has been made into Britany, will oblige the French Army to defer to ano- ther Opportunity the Operations which it yet propos'd to execute before the End of the Campaign ; and that it will go into Winter Quarters . the 20th of this Month- ——— Hague- Gazette. . ~ Hague, Oct. 19 Prince Waldeck's Head Quarters were at Weerd the ijth, and that of Prince Charles of Lorrain at Severen. The Allied Army is encamp'd along the Meuse; and we hear that they have thrown two Bridges over that River below Maestricht, from whence it's conjeCtur'd that they will soon repass it, and take Pos- session of their former Camp. Hague, Off. 20. We learn by an Express receiv'd by Mr. Trevor from Italy, that when the Courier who brought it set out, the Imperial and Piedmontese Troops were only two or three Marches from Villa Franca, and that the French had abandon'd Ventimiglia with so much Precipitation, that they had been obliged to nail up seven Pieces of Cannon, after having thrown 300 Men into the Castle. Extract of a Letter from Morlaix, dated Oct. 10. The two Frigates which the King sent last Month into Scotland, under the Command of M. de Warren, Colonel of Foot, in order to bring back Prince Edward, the Pretender's eldest Son, anchor'd this Afternoon at Roscoff, four Leagues from hence. This Prince was on board, with several Chiefs of Clans, and others, and he is this Moment arriv'd here, where he proposes to stay some Days. Col. Warren having sail'd from the Coast of France, arriv'd after a short Passage at the Western Isles of Scotland, but hearing nothing of the Prince, he sail'd to a bay call'd Loghnonona, where he landed some People to secure that Coast against the English Troops. He remain'd there a Fortnight waiting for Prince Ed- ward, who was so far up in the Country, that he did not arrive till the 30th of September. There was also on board these Frigates the Sieur Ba- risdale, who after the Battle of Culloden engag'd to deliver up the Prince to the English, to obtain his Pardon. Colonel Warren found Means to take him and his Son, and brought them both Prisoners here. The Colonel is just set out for Paris.' From the London Gazette. Hague, Off. 18. The French seem to have reap'd no considerable Advantage from the Action of the nth, having march'd back to their old Camp near Tongeren, without so much as taking Possession of Liege. One of Marshal Saxes Designs in this Attack, was, to have turn'd our Right, and intercepted our Communication with Maestricht, it is generally reported here, that he has detach'd about twenty Battalions, and as many Squadrons, to the Coast of Britany, and Was upon the Point of putting the rest of the Army into Winter Quarters. Some private Letters from Paris of the 14th give an Account, that the English Troops upon the Coast of Britany were re- embark'd; others mention their being still upon Land, and that they had propos'd to have re- embark'd upon the 9th, but being prevented by contrary Winds, had entrench'd themselves against the Gardes Cotes and the Peasants. These Letters say, that the English had not enter'd l'Orient at all, but had plunder'd all the Villages thereabouts. The Account publish'd by the French Court of the Descent into Bri- tany, is as follows: Upon the 10th two Couriers arriv'd from Britany, with an Account, that the English Troops which had made a Descent near l'Orient, re- embark'd upon the 7th at Night, having first pillaged four Villages, some Cottages and Farms, from whence they took all the Provisions they could meet with. They left behind them four Pieces of Cannon and one Mortar, which they could not carry off, finding themselves pressed by the Militia of Provence. It is t0 be fear'd that this Fleet, having re- viCtualled in this Descent, may make ano- ther elsewhere, or bombard fome Towns where no De- fence can be made. By other Accounts from Paris we have Advice, that the French King had publish'd a general Order for im- prisoning all the English SubjeCts in that Kingdom who were not provided with Passports, and that some English Gentlemen had been thereupon seiz'd and committed to the Bastile. On the 30th of last Month the King of Sardinia lay at Bordilera, within a League of Venti- miglia. His Troops had possessed themselves of Dolce Acqua, but expeCted an Opposition at Ventimiglia that might cost them two or three Days. list of the Loss of the Dutch Corp, with the two Bavarian Battalions and two Battalions and seven Squadrons of Austrians, in the Action that pass'd near Liege on the 11th of October 1746.

Killikelly, of Lissadoolly, near this Place, was brought to bed of three Sons, who are well, and were christen'd last Week by the Names of Frederick, Cumberland, and Pompey. Dublin, Sept. 30. By Letters of the 27th Instant we have an Account that Capt. Luke Mercer, Commander of the Besborough Galley, took two Prizes off the Isle of Man, laden with Brandy, to the Amount of 6001. Last Week died, at his Seat in the North, Sir George Gore St. George, Bart. Member of Parliament for the County of Donnegal, a young Gentleman, who is succeeded in Title and Estate by his Brother, Ralph Gore, Esq; Dublin, Oct. 4. Their Excellencies the Lords Justices have been pleased to appoint Sir Ralph Gore, Bart, to be Colonel of the Regiment of Dragoons lately command- ed by the Right Hon. Gustavus Lord Viscount Boyne, deceas'd ; and to be Captain of a Troop in the said Re- giment in the Militia of the County of Donnegal. Their Excellencies have also been pleased to appoint Sir Ralph Gore, Bart, and Henry Conyngham, Esq; to be Joint Governors of the County of Donnegal. Their Excellencies have likewise been pleased to no- minate and appoint Somerset Hamilton Viscount Iker- rin, to be one of the Trustees of the Linnen and Hempen Manufacture for the Province of Ulster, in the room of Sir George Gore St. George, Bart, deceas'd. On Tuesday last the Right Hon. Richard White, Esq; was sworn Lord Mayor of this City at the Exchequer Court, before the Right Hon. the Lord Chief Baron Bowes, who gave him a most excellent Charge, and complimented his Predecessor on his indefatigable Ap- plication to the Business of that high Office. After which Thomas Taylor and William Cooke, Esqrs. were sworn before his Lordship, at the Tholsel Court, High Sheriffs of this City SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Oct. 6. We hear that the Forest of Gaick, which lies betwixt Ruthven, Mar and Athol, is the Place of Rendezvous for the Stragglers who have late- ly infested the Country upon the North Coast, an In- 1 stance of which happen'd lately; a Man came to a Minister's House in Buchan, when there were none in it except himself and some Children, the rest being at a Market, and deliver'd a Letter to him, and told him he must have 10l. to which the Minister answer'd, he could not give it; the Man insisted on his Demand. In the mean while five or six of his Comrades came in with their Faces disguis'd, and supported his Claim; he offer'd them six Shillings, which was ail he had in his pocket; but the Gang not contented with this, went to his Drawers, took out about six Guineas and 4 1. in Silver, so went off, with dreadful Threatnings if any Noise was made about the Exploit. Edinburgh, Oct. 7. By a Letter from Inverary, dated Sept. 28th, we have Advice, that on the 6th or 7th of that Month four Gentlemen landed from the French Ships, and enquir'd for any one of the Rebel Chiefs ; that Barisdale and his Son were accordingly brought to them ; they desir'd Guides to Dr. Cameron, and were brought to him accordingly; that in the mean Time young Clanronald, Lochgarry, Keppoch, the said Ba- risdale and his Son, Ardsheil, and four Gentlemen from Apin, and several other Chiefs, with sixty private Men, went on board. The Pretender came on the 19th, in a bad State of Health, drest in a short Coat, of Black Freeze, a Grey Plaid Trouse, and Fellobeg over it, in Company with Lochiel, & c. The Ship sailed on the 20th : They did not land any Force, or commit any Hostilities. The Gentlemen and Commons were seen frequently to weep, tho' they boasted of being back soon with an invincible Force. . COUNTRY NEWs. Carlisle, Oct. 6.

THE shortest, safe and regular, Cure this Day in the World, from the slightest infection to the most inve- terate Degree of it, by a Medicine as pleasant to take, and as easy in its Operation as it is effectual for a thorough Cure; so that the unfor- tunate Patient gets suddenly and surprizingly well, without distaste to his Palate, the least disorder of Body, or any Confinement whatever. This is that great Remedy, now so well krown and long experienced to be truly infallible, and is the Grand ANTI SYPHILICON that RadclifFe and Garth used to say would totally extirpate the Venereal disease from the Face of the Earth, were it but universally known, and properly taken. Fresh infections, call'd Claps, with all their cruel attendant Symptoms, it presently cures ; and if taken in time, even prevents their taking Place. It is a safe, gentle, and pleasant Family Purge, even for Children as well as grown Persons, in all Cases where Purging is necessary ; nor can the deepest Scurvy Rheu- matism, Gout, Evil or Leprosy, stand before i , but are pleasantly cured and thoroughly extirpated by it, as well as the highest and most inveterate State of the confirm'd Venereal disease, which, with all its most raging Symptoms, it soon eradicates, restoring Health, Strength, and Vigour to the Body. Those who once take it, will never have re- course to any thing else. One Pot in most Cases is sufficient for a Cure, and can be had only at Mr. Radford s Toyshop, at the Rose and Crown against St. Clement's Church- Yard in the Strand, at f> s. a Po. t, seal'd up wi h a Book of Instructions, by which all Persons may fully under- hand their own Condition, and certainly know when, and when not, the Venereal Poyson is rooted out of their Bodies, Note, Ask only for a six Shilling Pot for the scurvey. no Letter answer d unless Post paid. The so much Fam'd HYPO' DROPS, WHICH in a few Days infallibly cure HYPOCHONDRIACK MELANCHOLY in MEN, and the VAPOURS in WOMEN, after all other remedies have prov'd ineffectual; and that by immediately striking at the very Root or true Cause, as well as remedying the Effect of those perplex- ing Maladies and all their Variety of Symptoms, by which they mi- mick, by Turns, almost all the Discases poor Mortals are afflicted with,' and have their Rise fiom a depraved Appetite, vicious Ferment in the Stomach, and Indigestion of Food, whence proceed Crudities, and flatulent or windy Disorders in the first Passages, four belch- ings, Cholick, uneasiness in the Bowels, and ill fumes which offend the Nerves, and, by Consent of Parts, affect the Head, and pro- duce sometimes Giddiness, Dimness of Sight, confused Thoughts , pertinacious Watchings, troublesome Sleep, frights groundless fears, and the deepest Melancholy, with, direful Views, and terrible Appre- hensions, at other Times fits, flushing Heats, Reachings, Faintness, lowness and Sinking of Spirits, Palpitation of the Heart, startings, Tremblings, and Twitchings in the limbs and other Parts, with many convulsive Disorders, sharp Pains, fix'd or wandering, Pains and Weakness in the Back, and other, almost innumerable and grie- vous Symptoms, which miserably afflict vast Numbers of both Sexes.

VOL. I. Meteorology, Mineral Waters, Materia Medica and Phar- macy Animal CEconomy. By WILLIAM LEWIS, M. B. F. R. . S, Printed for C. Hitch, at the Red Lion, and T. Astley, at the Rose in Pater- noster- Row. london. About three 0r four Months ago a most odd Affair happened at Sunning, near Reading, which seems at first so improbable, that we should not have ventured to give it as Fact, if it had not been extremely well at- tested. Hawley's Dragoons being quartered at Reading, the Horses were put to Grass in some Grounds belonging to the Village of Sunning. There was one Day a violent Storm of Thunder and Lightning, which the horses, who had been at FontenOy and obliged to quit the Field there, mistaking for another Battle, of their own Accord drew up in Order, in Sight of several Spectators, and stood trembling whilst the Tempest lasted, as those Animals are observed to do where there is a real Cannonading and when the Thunder abated and the Rain came heavily down, they broke of a sudden and run fleetly away thro' Sunning, and some other Villages, at first to the great Surprize, and afterwards to the high Diversion of the Inhabitants We hear that the Lord of S- x has sworn ( and who shall gainsay him ?) that S - g must and shall exist t0 the End of his Dominion. Extract of a Letter from Dover, Oct. 13. ' By a small vessel just arriv'd here from Calais, we learn, that the French were still under a great deal of Uneasiness about Britany, and that Lord Clare's Re- giment was to march fiom thence as this day for the said Province. We also hear by the same Canal, that the French now own their Loss in the late Battle near liege to be very near as great as that of the Allies. Yesterday Mr. Samuel Tucker, a very eminent Insu- rance Broker, of London, and Partner with Capt. Shorey, was married at Bexley in Kent to Miss Leticia Tucker, Daughter of Samuel Tucker, of Tooting, Esq; a Lady of great Merit and Fortune. On Saturday last, being the Anniversary of his Ma- jesty's Coronation, the Morning was usher'd in with Ringing of Bells, at Noon his Majesty receiv'd the Compliments of the Nobility and Gentry, at his Palace at Kensington; at One o'clock the Park and Tower Guns were fir'd, and the Evening concluded with Bon- fires, and other publick Demonstrations of joy, through- out the Cities of London and Westminster, and Suburbs thereof. St. James's Palace is order'd to be got ready the 28th Instant for the Reception of the Royal Family, his Ma- jesty then intending to remove from Kensington to that Palace. They write from South Carolina, that Admiral War- ren has appointed Capt. Everet to be Commander of his Majesty's Ship the Aldborough, on that Station, in the room of Ashby Utting, Esq; deceas'd. On Thursday last Abraham Hume, Esq; his Majesty's Commissary General for Stores and Provisions, was married at Wormley in Hertfordshire to Miss Hannah Frederick, of Sackville- Street, youngest Daughter to the late Sir Thomas Frederick. Last Week Charles Beate, Esq, was married at Peter- borough to Miss Clavering, Daughter to the Right REV. the Lord Bishop of that Diocese. Last Saturday Mr. Cornburne, Secretary to the British Consul at Lisbon, was married at St. Martin Orgars, to Miss Arbouin, eldest Daughter to Mr. Arbouin, one Of the Directors of the London Assurance Office, and Grand Daughter of Gideon l'Eglise, Esq; a young Lady of great Beauty, Merit and Fortune. On Saturday last died, at his House in Southampton- Row, that eminent Portrait painter Mr. James Francis Maubert, aged 80, who for many Years past had re- tir'd from Business. Last Sunday died, at his Lodgings in Gutter- Lane, Cheapside, the Rev. Mr. Sparks, who was latey presented 10 a Living of 100], per Annum. They write from Stockholm, that the Dyet of the States of Sweden go on very regularly, have named all their general Committees, and have resolved to present a considerable Sum of Money, by Way of Free Gift, to the young Prince Gustavus. The last Advices from Warsaw are not altogether so favourable with respect to the Dyet of Poland, the first and second Sessions of which have been very tumultuous. The French King's Embassador has presented a Letter from his Master, written with his own Hand, and ad- dressed t0 his Majesty of Poland, which is thought very extraordinary, the Crown of France having never given the Title of Majesty to the Kings of Poland before. The King of Prussia has also published a long Manifesto in Latin, with great Professions of Friendship to the King and Republick. The last Letters from Naples say, that they have been very agreeably surprized with the Arrival of 1200 Spa- nish Troops from Barcelona, and the Assurances given by his Catholick Majesty, of his sending 9000 Foot and 2000 Horse more immediately. The Beginning of last Week the young Fellow who robb'd Mr. Peters, an eminent Goldsmith in the Borough of Southwark, was taken at North- Allerton in York- shire, by the Postmaster of that Place but as they were carrying him over a Bridge, to the House of a Justice of Peace, he leap'd into the River and was drown'd in the Sight of all the People. Last Saturday William Lewin was committed to Newgate, by Sir Richard Hoare, Knt. Lord Mayor, charg'd on the Oath of John Neale, for being concern'd with one Thomas Macklean, who was brought from the Compter to Newgate the Day before, in feloniously stealing a Silver Watch of the Value of two Guineas, Their Ages together don't exceed 23 Years, though old Offenders. The said William Lewin, when the Officers were in pursuit of him, jump'd out of a Window one Story high. The same Day John Jetter, who was committe to New- gate some thime ago for a Felony, for which he should have been try'd last Sessions, but was so ill that he could not be brought down to the Old Baily, and who made his Escape about three Weeks since, was retaken in Wap- ping and brought to the said Gaol, double Iron'd, and put into one of the Cells. Last Saturday Night about Eight o'Clock, as Mr. Hendy, who keeps the Crown at Bayswater, was re- ceiving some Money at a Chandler's Shop in Ryder Street, St. James's, the Master of the Shop order'd his Boy to hold the Horse, and accordingly the Boy got upon the Horse to ride about, when a Man in a Sailor's Dress forced the Boy to tide further than he intended, which was into Bury- Street, where he knock'd him off the Horse, and afterwards rode away with it. This Fellow is suppos'd be one H y S— ms, a Hackney Coachman, who was transported about four or five Months since, he having been seen that Evening in the same Neighbourhood with a Brace of Pistols in his Pockets. Yesterday the Court met at St. Margaret's Hill, pur- suant to their Adjournment, when Sir Martin Wright, one of the Justices of the Court of King's- Bench, Sir James Reynolds, one of the Barons of the Exchequer, and Mr. Justice Clarke, being seated on the Bench, the Keeper of the Gaol was order'd to bring to the Bar Sir James Kinloch and Roderick M'Cullogh, and the Clerk of the Arraigns having read their Indictments for High Treason they both pleaded Guilty, relying entirely on his Majesty's Mercy. The Grand Jury had five Bills prepar'd, but two only were found, for want of Witnesses, who are not yet come from the North. The Bills found were against James Buchanan and Andrew Spruell, for High Trea- son. And then the Court adjourn'd to Wednesday the 22d Instant, when the Trials of the Rebel Prisoners will certainly begin. We have certain Advice from Falmouth, of the 9th Instant, that four Transports of Admiral Lestock's Fleet, were arrived there, and give an Account, that the Troops under General Sinclair landed the 21st of September, O. S. at Quimperlay, and marched directly to Port 1' Orient, and was before it five Days, but they re- imbarked on the 28th and that on the 1st Instant, a violent Gale of Wind came on, in which several of the Transports lost their Anchors, it being foul Ground, and ths whole Fleet was obliged to put to Sea ; and the above four Ships being separated from the rest of the fleet, made the best of their Way to Falmouth. Major Bell, who commands the Troops on Board those Trans- ports, has wrote up for further Orders, as they had no Place of Rendezvous, in Case of Separation, given them before they sailed from the Coast of France. , By the Cartel Ship arrived at Plymouth we have Ad- vice, that on the 6th Instant, O. S. the Tyger, a French Privateer of 36 Guns, returned to St. Malo's, very much shattered in an Engagement with the Tuscany, Sprackling, from London for Leghorn, on the 1st Inst. oif the Lizzard. The Tuscany fought ' till she had five Feet Water in her Hold, and her Captain killed, and then she struck ; but foon after foundered, with several of her own Crew, and the Privateer's Men on board. They write from tiie Sound, October 15, N. S. that on the several Sea Coasts of Denmark and Sweden, there had been violent Storms, in which great Numbers of Ships have been drove from their Anchors; and it's said that Capt. Lister, Wyer and Spanton, are lost near the Scaw: Capt. Spencer, who was in the Storm, got into Gottenbourg, with five Feet Water in his Hold. Extract of a Letter from Boston in New- England, dated Sept. 9. We have an Account from Deerfield, that on the 22d of August one of their Soldiers was kill'd by the Indians, as he was going with several others to Col- rain', and that on Monday the 25th, seven Men and a Woman being at Work in a Field at Deerfield, were attack'd by them ; three of them were scalp'd, two others had their Heads cut off, and the Woman was so desperately wounded, that it's thought she cannot recover. The Town being alarm'd, several People went out after the Enemy, one of whom was found kill'd and thrown into a Pond; but he was taken out and scalp'd by our People. Another Indian is thought to be kill'd, or desperately wounded, by a large Quantity of Blood being discover'd where one was carried off. Numbers of People have been kill'd near Albany by the Enemy Indians.' The following is said to be a genuine Account of the young Pre- tender's Escape after the Battle of Colloden. That decesive Engagement was fought on the 16th of April, 1746, in which the Pretender had his Horse shot under him, by one of the Troopers in the King's Service, as he was endeavouring t0 rally his People. After his Forces were entirely defeated, he resis'd to the House of a Factor of Lord L— v— t, about ten Miles from Inverness; where, meeting with that Lord, he staid Supper. After Supper was over he set out for Fort Augustus, and pursued his Journey next Day to Invergarry, where he propos'd to have din'd ; but finding no Victuals, he set a Boy to fishing, who caught two Salmon, on which he made a Dinner, and continued waiting there for some of his Troops, who had promis'd to rendezvous at that Place; but being disappointed, he resolv'd to proceed to Loch harcige. He arriv'd there on the 18th, at Two in the Morn- ing, where he went to sleep, which he had not done for five Days and Nights, He remain'd there ' till Five o'Clock in the Afternoon, in hopes of obtaining some Intelligence, but gaining none, he set out from thence on Foot, and travell'd to the Glen of Morar, where he arriv'd on the 19th, at Four in the Morning. He set out about Noon the same Day for Arrashag, where he arriv'd about Four in the Afternoon. He remain'd there seven Days, waiting for Capt. O'Neil, who join'd him on the 17th, and inform'd him, that there were no Hopes of drawing his Troops together again in a Body; upon which he resolv'd to go to Storn- way, in order 10 hire a Ship to go to France. The Person employ'd for this Purpofe, was one Do- nald M'Leod, who had an Interest there. On the 18th he went on board an Eight- oar'd Boat, in com- pany with Sullivan, and O'Neil, ordering the People who belong'd to the Boat, to make the best Haste they could to Stornway. The Night proving very tempestuous, they all begg'd of him to go back, which he would not do ; but to keep up the Spirits of the People, he sang them a Highland Song; but the Wea- « 1 ther growing worse and worse, on the 29th, about Seven in the Morning, they were driven on Shore, on a Point of Land called Rushness, in the Island of Ben- bicula, where, when they got on Shore, the Pretender help'd to make a Fire to warm the Crew, who were almost starv'd to Death with Cold. On the 30th, at Six in the Evening, they set sail again for Stornway, but meeting with another Storm, were oblig'd to put into the Island of Scalpa, in the Harris, where they all went on Shore to a Farmer's House, passing for Merchants that were shipwreck'd in their Voyage to the Orkneys, the Pretender and Sullivan; going by the Names of Sinclair ; the latter passing, for the fa- ther, and the former his Son. They thought proper to send from thence to Donald M'Leod, at Stornway, with instructions to freight a Ship for the Orkneys. On the 3d of May they rc- ceiv'd a Message from him that a Snip was ready. On the 4th they set out on Foot for that Place, where. they arriv'd on the 5th, about Noon ; and meeting with Donald M'Leod, they found that he had got in- to Company; where, growing druuk, he had told a Friend of his for whom, he had hir'd the Ship upon which there were two hundred People in Arms AT Stornway, upon a Report thai the pretender was landed with five hundred Men, and was coming to burn the Town ; so that they were oblig'd to lie all Night upon the Moor, with no other Resreshment than Biscuit and Brandy. On the 6th they resolv'd to go in the Eight oar'd Boat to the Orkneys, but the Crew refus'd to venture so that they were oblig'd to steer South along the Coast Side, where they met with two English Ships, and this compell'd them t0 put into a desart Island, where they remain'd ' till the ioth, without pro- vision but some Salt Fish they found upon the island. About Ten in the Morning of that Day, they em- bark'd for the Harris, and at Break of Day, On the 11th, they were chased by an English Ship, bur made their Escape among the Rocks. About Four n the Afternoon they arriv'd at the Island of Benbicula, where they staid ' till the 14th, and then set out for the Mountain of Currida, in South Uist, where they staid ' till the Militia of the Isle of Sky came to the Island of Irasky, and then sail'd for the Island of Uia, where they remain'd three Nights-, til having Intelli- gence that the Militia were coming towards benbi- cula, they immediately got into their Boat, and sail'd for Lochbusdale ; but being met by some Ships of War, they were oblrg'd to return to Lochaguart, where they remained all Day, and at Night sail'd for Loch- busdale, where they arriv'd, and staid eight Days on a Rock, making a Tent of the Sail of the Boat. They found themselves there in a most dreadful Si- tuation for having Intelligence that Cap . Scot had landed at Kilbride, the Company was oblig'd to sepa- rate, and the Pretender and O'Neil went to the Moun- tains, where they remain'd all Night, and soon after were inform'd that General Campbell was at Bernary so that now they had Forces very near, on both Sides of them, and were absolutely at a Loss which way to move. In their Road they met with a young Lady, one Miss M'Dona! d, to whom Cap. O'Neil propos'd assisting the Pretender to make his Escape, which at first she refus'd ; but upon his offering to put on Wo- man's Cloaths, she consented, and desir'd them to go to the Mountain of Currada, ' till she sent for them, where they accordingly staid two Days; . but hearing nothing from the young Lady, the Pretender conclu.- ded she would not keep her Word, and therefore re- solv'd to send Capt. O'Neil to General Campbell, to let him know He was willing to surrender to him i but about Five in the Evening a Message came from the young Lady, desiring them to meet her at Rushness. Being afraid to pass by the Ford, because of the Mili- tia, they luckily found a Boat, which carried them to the other Side of Uia, where they remain'd part of the Day, afraid of being seen by the Country people. In the Evening they set out for Rushness, and arriv'd there at Twelve at Night ; but not finding the young Lady, and being alarm'd by a Boat full of Militia they were oblig'd to retire two Miles back, where the Pretender remain'd on a Moor ' till O'Neil went to the young Lady, and prevailed upon her to come to the Place appointed, at Night- fall of the next Day. About an Hour after they had an Account of General Campbell's Arrival at Benbicula, which Oblig'd them to move to another Part of the Island, where, as the Day broke, they discover'd four Sail close on the Shore, making directly up to the Place where they were ; so that there was nothing left for them to do, ' but to throw themselves among the Heath. When the Wherries were gone, they resolv'd to go to Clan- ronald's House; but when they were within a Mile of it they heard General Campbell was there, which forced them to retreat again ; and soon after O'Neal was taken; and we have no Account of the Preten- der's Proceedings afterwards.
