Wrist'I now fend you is The Ceremony of Curfng by Bell, Bwtund Candle, as 'tis praftifed by the Church of Rome againit thofe they call Hereticks. 'Tis taken out of Fox's Mb .and Monuments-j where he tells us of the Pope's Anathema's that were pronounced againit our Countryman Tho. Berinet, A.M.

At which Word, one matching , ' -away the Stick, down- comes tumbling holy Crofs, and 4 alt the People mooted, and ftarted, and trembled, as if '� Old' Nick himfelf had beenamongft them in his own pro-- ptfPerfon.' It is faid a Meffcnger with feveral Letters from the Pretender, and his Adherents, was feiz'd on Monday, laft, ' nnd(|ha,t he was Yelterday examin'd by forae of the Lords -.fcf-theiGouncil ; but what Difcoveries have been made is not yet divulg'd. - . ... It is faid-the Admirals Vernon and Martin have look'd ' into" the" Ports of Dunkirk and Brefl, and have "acquainted tfee Mi^ift/y that there is no Appearance of any Embarkation from either of thofe Places. A Scheme for betraying the Cattle of Edinburgh into the Hands of the Rebels, is faid to have been concerted by an old Serjeant belonging to the Caftle ; but his Wife being feiz'd'with a large Apron full of Rope-Ladders,the Plot was difcover'd, and the Effe&s of it happily prevented. The Caftle of Edinburgh, of which the Rebels are reported to aim at the Poffeffion, is looked upon to be one of the ftrongeft Fortifications in Europe, both by Art and Na-tare. The Situation is fo extraordinary, that the Town it-felf is fuppofed to have been built where it is, only to be under its Protection : For Edinburgh is not otherwife convenient either for Trade, whjch it carries on by the Port of Leith, nor for frefh Water, which is brought three Miles in Leaden Pipes. This Caftle prefents a delightful and mod extenfive Pro? fpedt from the Ifland of Bafs, at the Moiith of the Firth, up to the City oT Stirling, overlooking all the Coafts on both Sidej. h hangs over and commands the Town, from whence it is diltant about a Mufket-fhot. The only way by which it is acceflible is from the High-ftreet, and there-not for many abrealt; and this Accefs, befides being very fteep, is covered by a noble Half-Moon of folid Stone. The Works take in the whole Summit of the Rock, and confe-quently are irregular according to the Limits or Verge of the Plane. They enclofe a very large Space of Ground, which, as they can te attacked but oneway, does not contribute to make them the lefs defenfible. With a good Quantity of Provifions and Ammunition, a great many People may fubfilt here for a long Time, they having Water within themfelves. The Scots will have the Name of Maiden Caftle be given it, becaufe it was never taken in all their Wars: But fome Hiltories fay, it was thus called from the Time of the Pi&iih Kings, who kept their Daughters confined in it. Within a Century pait this Caftle has twice fubmitted, and received a V idtor ; but not till it was palt all Hopes of Relief and no other Fortrefs in the Kingdom was capable of holding out: The firlt Time was to Oliver Cromwell, and the lait to our greatDcliverer from Popery and Slavery. L'tter from Dover, Seft. 30. ' Yefterday Evening fail'd the York, and the Eagle ' Privateer, Capt.
