Ixtrafi of a Letter from the Provifl of Dumfries to a Merchant at Lancafter. ' Two Gentlemen that iray be depended on, riding be-' tween MofFetand the Crook, on Saturday, Nov. 2, met ' a Countryman, about three Mies from the Crook, who < faid he was going to Annandale : Upon afking the News ' of him, he told them he came from Peebles, and that be-' fore he came away, the Provoft received a MetTage, fent ' him by the Rebels, to prepare Meat and Drink, and ' Lodging that Evening, for 1800 Men, that great Pre-' parations were alfo making that Evening at Broughton. ' One of the Gentlemen proceeded on his Journey, to-' wards Edinbourgh,  and  the  other returned towards ' this Place, and on Sunday the 3d, 'in the Forenoon, was ' at Muffet overtaken by an Exprefs with a Letter from ,1 his Friend, who had proceeded in his Journey, acquaint-X' ing him, that the Exprefs had left Peebles about Two S' o'clock, Sunday-Morning, the above-meutioned 1800 11 Men, with 150 Carts, with Baggage and Ammunition -' were come there on Saturday Night, and a little before ^ ' he left the Town, a larger Body came up, which he was j' inform'd, was to the Number of 2000 Men; of this an 7' Exprefs was immediately fent to General Wade. ' A Gentleman who had gone from Sterling for Intelli-' gence, in his way home on Sunday Morning, fays, that ' the French Baggage, Arms, and Ammunition that came ' into Montrofs, had been brought to Perth. Horfes were ' thence impreffed, under Pain of Fire and Sword, to car-1 ry it to Alloway. On Sunday, Oct. 27. they began to ' ferry over the Baggage with great Joy, and continued ' doing fo.till Monday and Tuejday ; but General Blake-' ney, having Notice when their Rear was to pafs, on ' Vedncfday Morning, difpatched Capt. Abercrombie, ' with fome Soldieis and Countrymen to attack them, ' which they accordingly did, wounded fome, took 14 or ' 16 Prifoners, 10 of whom the Gentleman Saw, took 14 ' Cows, 4 Horfes, and a great Deal of Baggage and Arms, ' 1-ipp'd the Prifoners and got feveral Purfes of Money, ' anaieveral Letters, which its hoped will afford General ' Blakeney fome notable Difcoveries. They were ail ' brought into Sterling on Wednefday-Evening, and car-' ried up to the Caitie, where the Gentleman faw them. ' He further adds, that there was along with the Bag-1 gage from the Monti ofe Ship, feveral Freuch Engineers. , 1 1'natGlenguile, with 150 Men and 7 Pieces of Cannon, that had been mounted in the Highlanders Battery at Al-y ' low ay, was gone to take PoSi'efhon of the Caftle of : Down, five Miles beyond Stirling, and that General ' Bhkeney refolved to go there and attack them. Xivjcajlk, Nov. 3. The Rebels (according to Advices '^t Night) feem to be taking the Weftern Road from Edin-��'gh ; but whether they defign for Glafgow or Carlifle 15 uncertain. Marfhal Wade went from this Town Yefte -day for Ber-but its thought the Route of the Rebels may hin-the March a Day longer. ' Tk-re are fome Advices of the 5th Inftant from New-' c2ule, which fay, that Marfhal Wade had rrcdved a� ' Packet from the 1 rovoit of Kelfo, containing an Order ' i-ig':'d Kilmannock) to the faid Provoft, to piovide En- ''ertair.mert'. for 400c Foot and 1000 Horie, againft the ' ^ X ght; and another Order inclofed, directed to _ tr* C:.ii-f Magitlrate of Wollard in Northumberland, di- rt:"-MJ. him to do the fame on the 5 th'and 6th, under ^a i.i-f \i iiitary Execution.' - Ex trail of a Letter from Ntixic a file, Nzv. 5. ' Laft Sunday an Exprefs arrived from General Handy- * fide, who commands at Berwick, to acquaint Marihal ' Wade, that the Rebels were in Motion Weltwaid, and ' on this Day, the 5th, General Wade had certain Ad-' vice, that 5000 of them were at Kelfo ; notwithstanding ' which the People of this Place are in no Pain about them, ' as the Army is ftill here. ' On Monday laft, being the 4th, an Exprefs arrived at ' NewcauTe, from General Blakeney ; they had made a ' Sally with the Garrifon of Stirling-Cattle, and demo- * limed the two Forts which the Rebels had erected at ' Alloway, crofsthe Firth; during which the Rebels had ' two Men killed, and Blakeney took 16 Prifoners, one ' of which he had reafon to believe was the Dutchefs of � Perth.' A Letter From Berwick, dated Nov. 3, intimates that they are alarm'd therewith 3000 of the Highlanders being at Dunfe, nine Miles from that Town ; but fays that 3000 of his Majefty's Forces were in Berwick. We are allured, that General Guefl has made a Sally from the Caftle of Edinburgh, in which he took feveral of the Rebels Prifoners, and got a Supply of upwards of 2000 Loaves of Bread. We are advifed from Dunbar of the 3d Inftant, that the Fraziers, M'Donalds, Monro's, and feveral other Clans, are now under Arms, and within a few Miles of each 0-ther; they are in Number about 6000, under the Command of my Lord Lothian; and when collected, which may be done in a few Days, they may be able to cut off the Retreat of the Rebels: Mr. Campbell well known a-mongft the well affected Clans by the Name of Jack Campbell, has been very active in railing thefe Men. An Order is ilfued for 2000 Men to be draughted out of the feven Regiments landed here laft Week from Flanders, in order to be fent to Lancafter, for the Defence of thofe Parts. We are affured his Grace the Duke of Argyle is not fet out for Scotland 5 but that Major General Campbell is foon to embark at Leverpool for Argylefhire, for which Pur-pofe there is now fhipping a great many Arms and warlike Stores for the well-affected Clans in that Country, which are to be under his Command; and they and thefe Troops raifed by Lord Prefident Forbes at Invernefs, who are commanded by the Right Hon. the Earl of Loudon, are all to march to Sterling, to cut off all poffible Retreat of the Rebels. Letters from Plymouth inform us, that Admiral Martin failed on the 4th Inftant, with fix Sail of the Line; to protect the Trade from the French Men of War and Privateers. The fame Letters confirm the taking the Black Prince, and Briltol Privateers; and that the Old Noll was funk in the Engagement. There is Advice, that the Jamaica Packet, bound from Philadelphia to Jamaica, is taken by the French, and carried into Leogan. Laft Monday died at Kirkham in Lancafhire, James Allcroft, Efq; a Gentleman of very considerable Fortune, in the Commiffion of the Peace for that* Coanty. OnThurfday Night died in Greek-ftreet, Soho, Thomas Jackfon, Efq; a Gentleman of good Fortune in the City of Coventry. We hear the Body of Sir John Webb, who died lately near Aix-la Chapelle, is to be buried in tiie South of Prance, purfuant to his Defire. On Thurfday lait a Man unknown, who was croffing fome wafte Ground in Oxford Road, fell fuddenly down, and died immediately. OnThurfday Night laft one Jofeph Payne, came to the Bull Inn in BifhopSgate-itreet, where he fat down and called for a Tankard of Porter, and would at iait thrult himfelf into fome Soldiers Company there, where he drank his Majefty's Health pretty freely ; but after fome time, when the Liquor began to operate, he open'd his Mind, da-'d his Majefty King George, and bleis'd the Preteu-de-, calling him a Prince; and endeavoured to enliil a Man into the Pretender's Service, and offered him five Guineas; whereupon Mr. Norman, the Mailer of the Inn, feeured him, and Yefterday he was committed to Newgate by Sir Robert Baylis. The fame Day was committed to Bridewell, one Anthony Mayo, for Healing Some Sugar from Bear Key, the Property of Sir Samuel Pennant. Letter from Brijiol, Nov. 5. ' This being the Anniverfary of the Powder-Plot, and � alfo of our Deliverance from Popery, Slavery and Arbi-  * drank his Majefty's, the Royal Family's, with divers ^ ' other loyal Healths, and a large Bonfire was erected be- ^ ' fore the Exchange, and feveral Barrels of Ale were given ' to the Populace, fine Fireworks were played of from the ' Tower of the Cathedral, and every Thing was conducted ' with the greateft Regularity, great PleaSure appearing in ' the Countenances of all Perfons whatfoever ; and the ' Evening concluded with Ringing of Bells, Bonfires in ' molt Parts of the City, Illuminations and other Demou-' ftrations of Joy. ' The Room Where the Gentlemen met was finely illu-' minated, and in the Centre was writ in large Letters, ' King George !�riumi hunt, and his Succefficn EverL'fling. IRELAND. Dublin. Nov. 2. Laft Monday his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant ilfued out a Proclamatian forbidding the {Exportation of all Kinds of Grainj to prevent the Kebe^ from being furnifhed with the fame from this Kingdom. \ Laft Wednefday being the Anniverfary of his Alajefty's Birth, the fame was obferved here with greater Demon-ftrations of Joy by all Degrees of People, than ever was known upon the like Occafion.   There was a fine Ode, wrote by the Rev. Mr. Lewis Burrowes, and Set to Mufkk by Mr. Dubourg, and perform'd at the Caftle, which was decorated and illuminated in the molt grand and elegant Tafte; the Square of the Caftle being finely painted ; tiie Gate leading to the lower Caitie Yard was a very Triumphal Arch, very finely painted, and over that the King's Arms,   with the Profile of his Majefty on the Right JL Side, and that of the Prince of Wa'es on the Left,   all O properly emblazon'd, on fine Muflin with Lamps behind, ^ which made the molt beautiful .Appearance.    On each O Window of the Caftle were the Letters G. R.  with a*"^ Crown above them, and 38 Lamps burning to each :  In t-j the Centre of the Building on the Right Wing were the Arms of the Earl of Chelterfield; and the Left thofe of his Countefs, as Countefs of Wallingham, in her own Right, properly coloured with Lamps burning before them.   The Supper Room was alfo decorated in tiie molt beautiful Manner with fine beautiful Paintings, Illuminations and Statues, the Entrance into it having a Temple of Minerva, in the Pediment of which was a BaSTo Relievo of his Majelly, to which the Motto was Parcere fubje&'s CS5 debcliaer fufer-bos.   Within the Temple there rofe a large and beautiful Obeli Sic, which feemed all one Blaze of Light from the Number of Wax Tapers which illuminated it ; and over the Sideboard which Surrounded the Infide of the Terr.ple at a proper Height, quite round,  were feveral beiHtifuI Statues, which poured out a perpetual Flow of the choicest Wines of all Sorts into rich BaSons properly placed to receive them, from whence the Liquor was conveyed by private Pipes into the Lower Callle Yard, where it played off in feveral Fountains of Wine during the whole Entertainment to give the Populace an Opportunity to drink his Majefty's Health and Long Life, and Confufion to all his Enemies, which they heartily and Sincerely did^ with many repeated Vollies of loud Huzzas.   The whole feemed a Sort of Paradicc,  and fhe Number and Beauty of the Ladies made it rather appear an Enchantment than a Re- ^ ality.   Her Excellency the Lady Chelterfield, in order to q fet an Example to the Lad;es of this Kingdom, did us the ^ Honour to wear on that Occafion an Head-Drefs of IriSh Bruflels or Needlework, of the Manufacture of Mr. and ^ Mrs. Baker of Abby-ftreet, which in the Opinion of all the n> Company, far exceeded in Beauty any Foreign Brufiels, Point, Mechlin, or Drefden ; and it is hoped that her Ex-  * cellency's good Example will have fuch an Effect, as not only to induce all the Ladies of this Country to wear the Same Kind of Lace, but incline our Parliament to give fuch Encouragement to the Undertakers, as may effectually Stop the IiTue of thefe immenfe Sums which are annually fent out to itrenghthtn the Enemies of our molt happy Ef-tabliihmenU and the Liberty and Repofe of Europe, for Prench '1 rifles and Nuns Work, ADVERTISEMENTS are taken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-House, in Lombard-Street.
