o r, NUMB, 697. N E. W ADVERTISER. tuesday, september 22, 1747. Extract of a Letter from ROTTERDAM, Sept. 27. Tis so easy to apprehend how great our Confusion must be, when the French Posts are almost as near us as Windsor to London, and I need not take up Time in describing it. We know that Ber- gen op zoom is lost, but we know to the full as little as you do, how it was lost ; nor are we in the least edified with the Accounts given of it by those, who at first Sight one would have thought, should have known the most of it. We cannot conceive to what Purpose the Sally Port of Filenius should not only be without Guards, but open, when it appears by the French Troops entering it, and taking Possession of the Bastions, there were no Troops near it. It is no less unaccountable that the Enemy should penetrate into the Heart of the Place, and surround the Head Quarters, which is a Fact not at all denied, before the Garrison was alarmed. It is allowed that Colonel Spork and his Battalion did their Duty, in rescuing their Officers; and that the Prince of Hesse Philip- stal acted as well as Man could do, after he was once at the Head of the Troops; but the Point is, how they came to be thus in Danger? We are also very much dissatisfied to find, that a great Part of the Garrison were so attentive to their own Safety, and so little mindful of that of their Fellow Sol- diers, as not to look behind them till they got to Oudenbosch ; by which the Troops that remained in the Town, and defend- ed it bravely, were very near having their Retreat cut off; for the French were advancing on both Sides to the Gate of Steenbergen, and had been Masters of it without a Blow, if those brave Fellows had delayed their marching but ten Mi- nutes longer. * Under these Circumstances all our Hopes lie in the Vigilance, Wisdom, and Probity of the Prince Stadtholder, and in the Willingnefs that his Britannick Majesty has testified to support his Son in law, and the Dutch Nation, against all the Force, and all the Intrigues of France. We are no less sensible that we can only flatter ourfelves with false Hopes from hence, if we do not exert ourselves to the utmost. We know that his Serene Highness can do little for our Security, if we do not assist and enable him to take the Methods that are proper for that Purpose; and it is to enable him that the free Gift was proposed by tHe People themselves, who without Doubt will shew as much Chearfulness in paying, as they did Alacrity in offering it. By this timely, this necessary, this only effectual Measure, we hope to replenish the Coffers of the State in such a Manner, as that fifty, or even one hundred thousand Men may be hired, if it be found requisite for our Defence. We know by Experience, that the foreign Troops in our Service will do their Duty, and for that Reason we do not at all grudge the Money that pays them; when we have such an Army in the Field, and his Serene Highness at their Head, we do not at all question that the Glory of the Republick will be restored, and its Subjects protected. But we are anxious to fee this done, we are uneasy till such an Army is formed, and we are afraid of losing a Moment's Time in providing for what appears so very essential to our Safety, ' There is yet another Point about which we are also ex- treamly sollicitous, and that is recovering the Friendship of his Prussian Majesty, always dear to this Republick, and never of such Importance as at this critical Juncture ; when it is most evident to all who have their Eyes open, that the very Being of it is at Stake. We are very senlible of the Pains taken by our antient Ally, to facilitate this Step. We are not ignorant of the Proposals that have been made to the Court of Berlin, or to how great a Degree the French were alarmed, when those Proposals were made. We have been well informed that the Marquis de Valori dispatched a Courier to his Master, to desire that the Accession to the Treaty of Stockholm might not be a Moment delayed ; and we know what Weight his Representations had, and how soon the Chevalier de Laumarie was dispatched to Stockholm, and ordered to take Berlin in his Way. It is for this Reason that we apprehend something is wanting on our Part; but we flatter ourselves that this will not be wanting long. His Serene Highness, the Prince Stadtholder, always vigilant for our Safety, has dispatched a Person of Distinction to Berlin, to know the Sentiments of the Prussian Monarch ; and upon what Terms the Republick may hope to obtain his Friendship and Assistance, with which when known there is no doubt we shall comply. These two Points once settled, I will not say our Fears will be over, but I may safely say that our Hopes will be revived. We shall then have a Prospect of recovering our Barrier, either by an honourable Peace, or by a War carried on with Prudence and Spirit, under the Auspice of that illustrious House, which rescued us from Spanish Bondage, and saved us from French Slavery, when our Affairs were more desperate than they are even now.'

He was met at the Water side by the Earl of Granard and Lord Tullamore, who accompanied him in the Primate's Coach to the Castle, where he was sworn Lord Lieutenant of Ireland by the Privy Council. At the same Time Mr Weston, his Excellency's principal Secretary, was sworn a Privy Counfellor of this Kingdom. His Excellency was at- tended to the Caftle in the usual State, and complimented by the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, Recorder, and Sheriffs. His Excellency was convoyed hither by Order of the Lords of the Admiralty by the Lizard Man of War, Capt. Sisson, Com- mander, and the Wolfe, Capt. Vechel, Commander, who is to be on this Station. Sir John Cope, Knight of the Bath, and a Brigadier- General on this Establishment, Lieutenant- General Otway, Admiral Lin- gen, with several other Persons of Distinction, arrived here at the same Time. Yesterday his Excellency the Earl of Harrington, dined with his Grace the Lord Primate; this Day he will dine with the Right Hon. the Lord Chancellor, and To morrow with the Right HOn. Henry Boyle, Esq; Speaker of the Honourable House of Commons The Report published in the Belfast News- papers, of the Bes- borough Galley, Capt. Mercer, Commander, being burnt in the Bay of Carrickfergus, is entirely false and groundless, the said Ship and Crew being in the best Condition and in good Health, nor hath any other Ship been burnt on that Coast, since the Whitehaven Man of War off Londonderry. Last Week Mr George Grace, of Thurles, in the County of Tipperary, was married to Mrs Eagan, Relict of Eagan, of Animeaddle, Esq; a most agreeable Gentlewoman, with a large Fortune. By an exact Survey lately made of the City and Suburbs of Dublin, it measureth seven Irish Miles and three Quarters round, which makes nine English Miles and three Quarters; the Irish Miles containing 2240 Yards, and the English 1760, by which it appears, that Dublin is the sixth largest City in Europe for Magnitude, and Number of Inhabitants: The five greater Cities are, London, Paris, Constantinople, Moscow, and Rome. The City of London, taking in Westminster, Southwark, and forty three Villages, is six Miles and seven Furlongs in Length, and three Miles and thirty- one Poles, or 370 Yards in Breadth, which may be reckoned about sixteen English, or near fourteen Irish Miles in Circumference. Extract of a private Letter from Sligoe, Sept 11, 1747. I arrived from the North last Wednesday Night, where there has happened a very extraordinary Affair. There were two or three West Indiamen bound for Liverpool, that came to an An- chor in very bad Ground, and had like to have been lost. About 4 or 5 Leagues to the Northward there were two Pri- vateers in wait for them ; they had taken one Ship a little be- fore, and ransomed her; there came on a very hard Gale of Wind, which drove one of the Privateers on Shore, and all her Crew perished, except three Persons who were sent to Goal. The said Privateer was a Spaniard, it was her that took the ransomed Ship, the Ransomer was drowned also, so that the Ransom is paid ; which I think would be well done to advise the Town of Liverpool of it, for it is to that Place she did belong.' For some Time past several Rogues, with Crapes on their Faces, have infested the Country near Kilkenny, sallying out ge- nerally in the Night, and have committed several great Robbe- ries. A Woman, who was in the Secret, upon some Provoca- tion, has discovered their Names, Number, and Places of Ren- dezvous, but they have hitherto evaded all Search. Friday last three Mares started for the Plate at the Currah, which was won by a Mare belonging to Sir Edward O Brien. Saturday last died the Reverend Mr Newton, Minister of Newtown near Kells. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, September 14. Saturday last the following Gentle- men were chosen Deacons of the fourteen incorporated Trades of this City, viz. George Cuningham, Deacon of the Surgeons, re elected. James Ker, Conveener of the Trades, and Member of Parlia- ment for this City, Deacon of the Goldsmiths, re- elected.

Peter Macdougal, Deacon of the Bonnet- makers, re- elected. And John Morison is chosen Preses of the Barbers. Edinburgh, Sept. 15. We ate. informed that last Week the Camp broke up at Fort- Augustus, and that the Troops are on their March Southward to go into Winter Quarters, not being able to keep the Field longer in that Country, where all on a sudden the Weather became excessively cold, after the warmest Season perhaps in the Memory of Man.—' Tis said one of the Regiments is destined for the Canongate. On the 2 2d of August last, the Betty of Airth, from Carolina to Leith, was taken 70 Leagues West of Lewis, by a French Privateer Of 18 Carriage Guns and 200 Men, and ransomed for 750 I. Sterl. We hear that some Sloops of War have been lying at Anchor this Month past in the Sound of Mull. The Page of Glasgow is safely arrived at Virginia. There are about 20 Sail of Ships from the West- Indies, mostly from Carolina in Stromness- Road in Orkney ; amongst which are the Magdalen, James M'Kenzie, and the —, Andrew Landels of Leven ; also the , Conachy of Airth, who was taken off the Well of Ireland, and ransomed for 775 1. ' Tis remarkable, that of 20 Ships now lying at Stromness, 15 of them have been taken either outward or homeward bound. Bristol, September 19. COUNTRY NEWS. Tuesday Night last, between and eight and nine o'Clock, one George Sweet, a Tobacco- Cutter, was barbarously murdered by one Petherly, a Dragoon, in Lord Cobham's Regiments, now quartered in this City, at the Golden- Heart, on Redcliff- Backs. This fatal Accident was occasioned by a Quarrel that arose between the Deceased and the Dragoon, ( who is a very lusty tall Man) on Account of some Dispute at Cards, at the Golden Heart, aforesaid. The Game they played at was Cribbidge, and the Deceased having won a Shilling of the Dragoon, would play no longer ; the Dragoon strenuously insisted on his playing further, and said he had another Shilling for him s which the Deceased positively refusing, so irritated the Dragoon, that he called him Scoundrel, and as the Deceased was going out of the " House, the other gave him a Kick on the Breech. Sweet was so enraged at this Affront, that he went and got two or three of his Companions to call the Dragoon to account ( as is supposed) for his thus kicking and abusing him ; and when they entered the House ( the Golden Heart) the Dragoon having a Jealousy of some Assault to be offered him, fetched his Broad- Sword, and coming to high Words he made a full Stroke at Sweet, and wounded him in the Left Wrist; the Dragoon im- mediately after this, seconded his Rashness and Fury with a full Pass at him, and run him quite thro' the Body, the Point of the Sword entering the Left Side of his Body under his Arm- pit, and came out at the other Side under his Right Arm- pit. The Deceased notwithstanding made a Shift to run as far as his Lodg- ings, the Chequers on Redcliff- Backs, ( a few Doors from the Golden- Heart) and said to the Landlord, Uncle, I am despe- rately wounded, or Words to that Purport, and died instantly in his Arms. After the Dragoon had committed this Cruelty on poor Sweet, he came into the Kitchen of the Golden- Heart; [ the Action being in the Entry] and told the Landlord, he had wounded or hurted the Man, and shewed him his bloody Sword. He quartered in this House, and bore the Character of a civil Fellow. Soon after a File of Musqueteers came to take him Prisoner, whom he resisted by shutting the Doors, and they were obliged to break in to seize him, who carried him to the Guard ; and on Thursday last he was committed to Newgate, on the Coro- ner's Inquest of wilful Murder. LONDON. We are informed by Letters from the Hague, that their High Mightinesses, the States General, are inclined to bestow upon Prince Frederick of Hesse, Son- in- Law to his Britannick Ma- jesty, Nephew to the King of Sweden, and Commander in Chief of the Hessian Troops in the Army of the Allies, the Go- vernment of Maestricht, which was lately resigned by his Fa- ther, Prince William of Hesse. They write from Liege, that the Dysentry destroys Multi- tudes in the French Army, and that it if believed it will oblige Marshal Saxe to change his Quarters sooner than he designed. Those Letters add, that the Reports of Peace were not only re- vived, but grown stronger than ever; and that some People of- fered to lay Wagers, that the Preliminaries are signed before the first of October, and that the Congress will be opened at Aix la Chapelle in the first Week in November at farthest. The Paris Letters pretend, that all the Motions of the Austrians and Piedmontese on the Side of Dauphine, were calculated to oblige Marshal Belleisle to divide his Army in the County of Nice, in which Case he must soon have been obliged to re pass the Var ; but that as this did not take Effect, and as the Rains have already begun to fall on the Alps, which are immediately followed by the Snows, they flatter themselves they shall escape an Invasion, and be able to keep Possession of the County of Nice this Winter. The Vulture Sloop of War, is sailed from Portsmouth for Jamaica. NEWS and ADVERTISEMENTS for this Paper, are Leicester- Fields taken in at The MOUNT COffEE- HOuSE in Grosvevor- Street; at PON'S COFFEE- HOUSE in Castle- Street ; and at POWELL'S CofFEE- HOUSE in Spittal FieldS Yesterday being St Matthew's Day, the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, attended by several Aldermen, and other Governors of Christ's Hospital, met in the great Hall of that House, when the Latin Oration was spoken by Mr Bridges, and the English Oration was spoken by Mr Foster, after which they were elegantly entained in the Compting House, according to annual Custom.
