Extra SI of a Letter from Appleby, Nov. 30. * The Highlanders proceeded from Penrith to Kendal, * thro' Shapp, which was a happy Deliverance to this ' Town, not one of the Rebels calling here. The young * Chevalier walk'd at their Head, from Penrith to Ken-*dal. " * Wearejuftnow entering into an Aflbciation for the * Defence of this Town^Penrithrtaving Ihewn us an Example Yeftefday,-and hot without very great Reafon : For laft Thurfday about 22 of; the Rebel Party, amongft whom was Lord Kilmarnock's Son,, and two Douglafies educated at Lowther School, rid thro' Penrith, well armed to Lowther-hall, behaved in the rudeft Manner,. and broke open all the Locks but one. While they were; in the Midft of their.JoUitry the Fire-bell was rung at Penrith, which alarming the neighbouring Villages, in a little Time Spwards of 150 Men were raifed ; 25 of. whom well armed went and filrrounded the Hall. The'; Defperados came out in order to fight the Penrith People, who gave thiem fo warm a Reception, that they wounded three of them. The hardned Villains ftood above an Hour, and kept a conftant Fire. Only one of the Penrith People was wounded, it being dark, or feveral of both Parties mull have been killed. Ten of the Rebels were taken Prifoners, the other flipt out at the Back-Door. The Penrith People got all their Arms, and 16 or 17 Horfes. Yefterday the Rebels were carried thro' this Town to General Wade. One of them was a Northumberland Gentleman, who only joined them three ' Days before. In Ihort, we ftiall never befafe from their Inroads this Winter, or at leaft, while Carlifte is in their � Hands. ' All the young Gentlemen Rebels that were in the Ac- � tion at Lowther, we fuppofe, made their Efcape to Car-' lifle.' Extra I! of a Letter from Liverpool, dated, Nov. 30. * In ttie Midft t)f a Dilhaflion not to be defcribwd I � have ftolen a few Miniites to write to you. You need ' not be informed that our Apprehenfidlis arife from the ' Rebels being fo near us. Our Affiiirs are come to a Crifis, ' for this Place is too rich to e.^cpect efcaping a Fa.!ty for ' Contribution or Plunder, or perhaps both. .There is > ' fcarce a Woman ftays in the Town, all fly to theother ' Side of the River in Chcftiire, where great Numbers have been this Fortnight; and their moit valuable �f-fefts are on Boa.rd Ships, which lie under the Cjmnon of two Men of War lately Built here, which are. now in the Channel, v Oh this Qccafion Lbdgirigs are rais'd fo prodigioufly in all this Village, on the other Side of the Water, that a fingle Rtx^m will fetch Ten Shillings a Week. Nothing can equal the Horror and Fright., of the People; all laft Night. Carts were carrying Goods away, Carpenters are alfo at Work in making,of Boxes for Packing, and airp'umitufe "is pulling down."' There is hardly any. Shop Goods, Plate; 'Linnen or Cloj^th left in the Town; Ina Wor4 Liverpool is ftrip'd almoft entirely. The Progrefs the Rebels make mult give the moft dreadful Apprehenfions of what they may do to all who are Friends to our happy ErtabHftiment.' � ^ C B ExtraEl of a Letter from Leeds, Dec. 2. ' Oii Sat'bfclay Morning we were alarm'd with an Account of the Rebel Army's coming into Rochdale on Friday Evening, and by that Time this Article arrived at Halifax; it was improved into' a Certainty that they were adually thefe, and bending their March towards Leeds: This Account put the Town into great Confufion , how to fecure themfelves and their mbft valuable Eff>;tls. Yet I was confident they would not come; befcaufe by that Means they would fly into the Mouth of a ftronger Army, and go a great deal out of their Way, if they intended to flip between both. A Party came from Man-chefter to Rochdale, to demand the Publick Money, and beat up for Recruits. It is thought fome of the meaner Sort inay join them, moft of the Men of Confequence having deferted the Town, and great Numbers of Irifli Papifts being employed in the Manchefter Manufadture. Mr. Gates of this Town, fince his Return from Kendal, is gone to General Legonier's Army, where he has offered himfelf asaCader, has fent for his Accoutrements, and as many of the Leeds Company of Blues (a voluntary Independant Company raifed there) as a e wilhng to engage to go and join the faid General. Our Blues have met to confider of Mr. Oates's Propofal, but their Refolution I have not yet heard. We have had nine Companies of the Welt* Riding AflTotiated Blues, of 50 in a Company, now above a Week in Leeds; ftout brave Fellows, and if well Officer'd, I doubt not would do Execution. They "are to march out of Town To-Day; to make Room for the Horfe and Dragoons of General Wade's Army, who, if they do not receive Counter Orders, will be here To-night from Ripley and Knarefbo-rough, where they were certainly Yefterday, and the Main Body of the Army is expefted here cn Wednefday, their Route being, as we are told, from Bedal to Burrow-bridge To-Day, from Burrowbridge to Weatherby Tomorrow, and on Wednefday to Leeds. But their coming here will depend on the Motions of the Rebels from Mahchefter: If the Rebels advance towards General Legonier, General Wade's Forces will come hither 5 hut if theyfhould give Sir John Legonier the Slip, and take towards Rotheram.or Doncafter, General Wade will march direiftly upon the London Road. An Exprefs ar-.ived laft Night from Manchefter, with an Account that the Rebels left that Place Yefterday (SundayMorning) at three o'Clock, and marched for Stockport, defigning, I fuppofe, to pafs from thence to Buxton, and fo to Derby, and avoid the Duke's Army, but I hope they'll bedifap-pointed. God grant they may! . Extras tf a Letter from Chefler, Dec. 2. * The Gentry and all the Heads of this City are gone away, and all manner of Trade ftop'd, the Shops in general having been Ihut up for this Fornight paft. We are in Expedation of the Rebels giving us a Vifit every Day, for they have been at Manchefter ever fmce Friday laft ; where they were received with Ringing of Bells, Illuminations, &c. they alfo beat up for Volunteers, and proclaim'd the Pretender. If they come to Chefter the Accommodation they will meet with, will be Fire and Sword ; for the Caltle and City are determin'd to fight it out to the laft Extremity. Ligonier is very near them, fo that we expedl every hour to hear of an Engagement. Their coming here will occafion their being fo hemm'd in, that it will be impoflible for them to get out without being deftroy'd; for the Duke of Cumberland has fent us Word, that he will be with us in a Day or two, if the City can hold out fd long.' Extra5l of a Letter from a Mafler of a Ship at Scarborough, � to a Gentleman at Nivocafile, ' WednefdayJlJorning. Nov. 20. at Three o'Clock, ' we had a violent N.E. Wind, whereby were put aftiore  the following Ships near Scarborough, viz. Two * bel paging to Whitby, three at Sunderland, and two "ait ' Filo.-Four thoufand Men work Night arid Day at the ' Caftle and Town-Fortifications, and we ftiall mount, ' beiides thofe belonging to the Caftle, 400 Ships Guns ; ' and if the Rebels do us the Favour of a Vifit, we {hall ' fpeak Broad-Torhfhire to them ; and as ouf Ships are ' laid up, our Sailor?, to the Number.of 5 or 6000, are ' fo complaifant as to ftay to give them welcome.' Neivcaflle, Nov. 30. On Saturday laft. was brought ^ hither Thomas CoUinghood, who was taken the Z2d InlL  by one of the Cumberland Light Horfe, at the Swan in Thirlivell-gate, about 12 Miles off Carlifle.- He had about hiih'i 14I. and a Letrer to one of the Rebels from A-n H-n, Efq; of Tone near Hexham, in which was a Lift of thofe who fubfcribed towards the above Sum. O The fame Evening the Freewill of Yarmouth. Cap Sainuel Wade, was loft on the Black Middins as flie wa^ coming into this Harbour, but the Crew were fu.v'd* She was laden with Hops, Sugars, Sec. for the Merchant^, kc. of this Place, to a confiderable Value, moft of v of them, and that in all probability an Engagfemenc would enfue as Yefterday; By the beft Accounts from Scbtlafid we are informed, that the Rebels at Perth confift of .icJod Men; at DiindfG about 600 Men, at Montrofe 200, befides 3 or 400 out in Parties 5 they behave in a moft infolent Manner, and their Officers cannot prevent their committing Outrages. At Perth they ftrip the Towns-People of their Shoes and Stockings, even in the Day--Time.They keep a Guard at the Bridge at Earn, and harrafs the Country very much. Nevjcafle, Dec. 2, at Six 0 Clock in the Morning. ' We < have certain Advice, that the Rebels are got Knorf-� ford and Macclesfield ; and the Army under the Ccfrt- ' mand of his Royal Highnefs the Duke is affembling at O * Stone, fo that in a Day or two, we may give you the t^H < Fate of the Battle.''
