We have the following to add to the former Accountof the Execution ofMrs Branch and her Daughter, for the Murcer of their Servant Maid. The Gallows being cut down, fhere war little time Ipen: before a netv-fafhion'd one was erected in the Prefencc of the Criminals, by fixing two fma.l Trees to anfwer the Deficiency. After the Clergyman had done praying with them, they both quickly afcended a S'.ock made for that Purpole. Whilll the 'Ha ter was fixing round the Daughter's Neck fhc 'fainted away; and what is very remarkab'e, the o!d Wenun heip'd to fix the Rope round her Daughter's Neck, and afrmvasds fettled her own; and died without the Irafl feeming Ejaculation or Concern. Ketch Was dreft in an old black Coat and a Gold-lac'd Hat, who had a handfome Prefent for his Property ol the Cloths thry were executed in, whi-i were but ordinary. The Stock or Foo:ftep3 were drawn from tinder them ; and to make the f.vecurion mare un common, they were not cut down, bat the Rapes were unry'd. The old Wtm:n was aged. 67, and the Daughter zq. All poilib'e Means were ufed to ob tain a Pardon for the Daughter, at the Expence of at lcaft jccc!. but the Affair appearing a Barbjrity unparalleled, a!I Endeavours we-e m vain. The Country w; s very much irritated a: the early. Execijticn, thcu lands coming'from fir and near, -but. were' aJapro;n: ed of the Sight.. The Execution bf thofe unhnrpv People feems to give a univerfal Satis/adion to al tr.e Cosntry, who cry'd out Oncand.'^tlfor the Conrel tion of it. ' L F. Edinburgh,'May 6.

Strachan and Baillie, belonging to the Ship the Ccn-vcener of Leith, then in Gouenburgh,  having concerted tetwixt themielves, refolved to-nuke their Ei cape and return to Britain; but ss there was no probable means of effecting this without the mcft imminent danger, they agreed to make irjl for the Coalt of Norway, where they could fconefl prepefe a Fat-l3ge to Scotland.   To effect thi.-, they got a fnrnt Skiff prepared,  v-hich coit them 15 s. and having provided a few pieces or Beef, feme Water, and Bjf cuir, and likewife a Compafi, Line, Sec  .'rem the ^hir, they put to Sea, but were foon drove from their Latitude by a ftrcni' Eatterly Wind.

The/ row faw their Ftliy, when it was tco k.te to experft Relief;  tl.ey' wi/h'd for any Shore, bat had no probable Hopes cf ever reaching one; their imal! Skiff was too. weak to re-'t a Storm, and their Prcvilions ic-mry; they could not Sleep for the Sras wh ch broke in upon them, which likewife wetted them to fuch a Degree, that they were quite fen'elef , and fo feeble, as to be unable' to work a: their Or.rs.   In this difnial condkicn they continued for the fpate of eight Days, when kind i'ioviiierH.e, to their mexpr-jliiD e Joy and Surprize, directed their Boat to Scarborough in England, where they arrived fate---They feem to be ienhble of the Folly cf this Adventure, and agree to think thst it i� Madn�fs to run :o a certain Danger to fhun an imagin'd Evil. .-rnblick Thanks'-iving has been offered in the Church of Leith for their Deiiverance.
