Q LONDON. hr The fallon.ving count of Affairs at Carlijle may be depended ^ trfioft, as itv had it from a Per/on ^who voas an Eye Wtt-neji of^hat is reiaud, and adive in the Garrifon, On Saturday Afternoon, about Three o'Clock a Body of ll^e Rebels appeared at Stanvvix Bank, within a Quarter of a Miif^of Carlifle; and, it being the Market Day there, they mixed with the Country People returning home, fo that it was not poflible for the Garrifon to fire upon them for fome 1 ime, without Rifque ofinjuring their Neighbours along'with their Enemies: But in lefs than half an Hour, the Country, people difperfed themfelves, and then the Garrifon of the Caftle fired a Ten Gun Battery upc n them, which, 'tis believed, killed feveral; upon which, and Night coming on, they retreated to a greater Dillance from the City, and the Garrifon ftood all the Night under Arms. At two in the Morning a thick Fog came on, which remained till Twelve that Day, when it cleared up for about an Hour, and then tlie Garrifon difcovered the Rebels approaching to attack the City in three feveral Parties, viz. one at Stanvvix Bank, commanded by the Duke of Perth, a fecond in Shading-gate Lane, commanded by the Marquis of Tullibardine, who alfo had the Arti.lery, and the thi.d in Blackwell Fields, where the Pretender commanded the Remainder of their Body, facing the Englifti Gate. Upon difcovering thefe three Parties approaching fo near to the City,vthe Garrifon fired upon them, \iz. the h'our gun Battery upon the Marquis ot Tullibardine, who was heard to fay, Gentlemen, tve han^e not Metal for them, ritreat ; which they immediately did, and dil'appeared. The Turret Guns and the Citadel Guns were fixed upon the Pretender's Divifion, wherethe white Flag was difplay'd, which was feen to fall; about the fame Time the Ten (jun Battery was fired upon the Duke of Perth's Divifion, who eUo retired. Then the Thick P'og ftruck in again, and all the Inhabitants of the City expedled nothing b'i:t that a general Affault would be made by the Rebels, againlt which the Walls were well I'ned with Men : and Sif John Feiinington, Dr. Waugh, Chancellor, Humphrey Seahoufe, Jofcph Daire Dalllon, of Acron bank, lifqrs; with feveral other Gentlemen of Note, ftood all Night under Arms, to encourage and affift them. The Militia was alfo drawn up in the Foot of Caftle-ftreet, to be ready in cafe of a forcible Attack, to relieve and reinforce the Men upon the Walls. On Monday Morning the Fog ftill continuing thick, the Garrifon could not jobferve the Situation of the Rebels, but heard their Pipers playing not far from the Englilh Gate. About Ten o'Clock a Man was let down from the City Walls, to reconnoitre the Enemy, and he found they were retiring towards Warwick Bridge. After-Noon other Spies were likewife detach'd to obferve their Amotions, and difcover'd a great Number remained about Warwick Bridge ; but the Pretender, with his Guard and Attendants, were advanced to Brampton, where they lodged themfelves that Night ; and on Tuefday they lay idle from all Aftion, except Feats of Rapine and Plunder ; for they fpent the Day in hunting and deftroying the Sheep of Lord Carlifle's Tenants, and bearing off the Country Peoples Geefe and other Poultry. They alfo feized upon all the Horfes they could lay Hands on, without any Queftions relating to f^alue or Property ; notwithftanding they declare the Defign of their Expedition is to redrefs Grievances and corre�51; Abufes. Tuelday Night the Rebels flept quietly with full Bellie^. On Wednefday Morning about Ten o'Ck)ck they difplay'd the White Flag at Warwick Bridge-end, to which they were about three Hours in repairing. About One t^'Clock the young Pretender, attended by Lord George Murray, the Duke of Perth, and feveral o-thers, befidcb thofc called his GuarJs, came to them ; upon which they formed themfelves, and began to march again towards Carlifle, in the following Order: Firft, two (named Hulfars) in High'and Dieiltt, and high rough red Caps, like Pioneers j next, about half a Dozen of the Chief Leaders, followed by a Kettle Drum ; then the Pretender's Son, at the Head of about 110 Horfe, called h-s Guards, two and two a Breaft ; after thefe a confufed Multitude of all forts of mean People, to the Number (as was fuppofed) of about 6000. In this Order they advanced to the Height of Warwick Moor ; where they halted about half an Hour, and took an attentive View of the City : From thence the Foot took the Lead, and fo march'd to Carlifle about Three in the Afternoon ; when they began a frefh AflTault, and the City renewed their Fire. On Thurfday the City was invefted by the whole Rebel Army ; the Leaders of which, ^ not only being deftitute of all honeft Shame for fo prepo-Iterous a Method of gaining an Afcendancy over a free and heretofore happy People, but alfo pofTeffed with the moft wicked and hellifh Spirit of Cruelty chat Rome ever infpired, they compelled the innocent People to bear Ladder.-, and other Engines for the Attack, to the very Walls, againft the Fire of the City Cannon; thereby forcing them into certain Danger of being deftroy'd by their Friends; which, if they refufcd, they were fure to meet inftant Death from the Hands of thefe barbarous Villains. At Ten o'Clock on Friday Morning the City furreoder'd to the Rebels, and is to pay 2000 1. Contribution. ' Nitfjcapie, No-v. 16. A Merchant of Edinburgh, now at Berwick, writes to his friends here, that 'tis expected both the Banks at Edmburgh will be opened upon General Handafyde's Arrival.
