""PLANT ATIONNEWS." From the NEW-YOR K MfcRCURY. , New-Tori, Dec. ro. On Thurfday laft arrived two officers from our army to the fouthward, under the command of Colonel Bouquet, by which oppouuni y we have the following intelligence, and publifh it by authority: Cimp at the Forks of Mufbingbaw, Nov. 15, 17644 " The at my auived at this camp on the i 5th of October, being in the centre of the Delaware towns, a:id 1 e3r to Wakate-rnihe, the moll confideiable fettlement of the Shawanefe; and matters had been fo managed wi h the Savages, that we remained leaders of the conditions we had to prefcribe to them, firlt infilling on the delivery of all their prifoners, before any terms of peace Ihould be propofed.   The Delawares, Min-goes, and fome bioken tribes of Mohikons ^fltTWyondous, were firft entirely reduced, and fubmit'ied to the reftdring all their pri-^pners without exception j in confequence of which, the Mingoes, the Delawares, &c. delivered up all their prifoners, even to their own children, born of white women \ which laft was peremptorily infifted upon, and may be coniidered as a itrong proof of their finced y and numiliation.   They have like.-, ife given 14 of their Chiefs as hoilages into out hands, for the fecurity of the per-f rm3r.ee of their engagements, and that no holliliii^s ihculJ b. committed; and likewife a^eed io k-;:-d De;�u ies from each nation to Sir Willis.n Jc-hiifyn, properly authorized jo make j-e^cc,. engaging to ratify all the Condi.ions mat thould be inipofed upon them. The SiiaA'aTsfi; were more obftinare, and refufed . i:e conditions as 'the other na.ion;;.   Tuey immediately del i-vtied up 40 prifoners, and have given fix of their piincipal Chiefs ai huitages for the delivery of tire remaindei of thdr captives. Parties wete lent to their towns to aflift in collecting thein, and bringing them, to Fort Pitt; aud the Shawanefe ate t hen to fend Deputies to S.r William Johnfon, to fettle the peace in the fame yaanner as the relt. The number of prifoners already delivered exceeds 100, and many more are expeded from the Shawanefe : fevetal of them have remained fo many years wnh the Indians, as to become as favage as themfelves, and the Indians were obliged to tie them, to bi ing them to the army." Friday arrived here the floop Induftry, Capt. Rofe, from Pono Rico, laft from Santa-Croix, by whom we hear, that the Spaniards had taken two or three Englifh ve/Tels, faid to be on fome trade not allowed by the Spaniards. A palfenger onboard the above floop declares, that while he was at Santa-Croix, news came there, that the French had taken 40 or so fail of Englifh merchantmen, bound from Jamaica to Europe. LONDON Tuefday his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland (who is now perfedly recovered) had a numeVous and fplendid levee at his houfe in Giofvernor-fquare. The fame day her Royal Highnefs the Ptincefs Amelia had a great levee at her houfe in Cavendilh-fquare. There is now making, in the city of Weftmmfter, for a very great perfonage, againft her Majefty's bitth-day, a fuit of cloaths, ivhich when finifhed, will, it is thought, be the moll elegant and magnificent of any thing of the kind ever made up in this kingdom. A letter from Plymouth fays, that the French veffel ftopt fome time ago, and which was lately men:ioned in the papers to have failed from that place, is ftill there, now lying in Cat water, and look'd after by the Pitt cutter; and that the feveral things taken, were not reftoied, but >vere leized and carried to the Cuitom-houfe there. On Tuefday laft ar the Court of Huttings held "at Guildhall for the eledion of a Chamberlain, in the room of the late Sir Thomas Harrifon, deceas'd, the Hon. Mr. Alderman Harley (having been called upon the day before, in an advertifement in one of the morning papers, to declare, whether he had not received or been promifed the General Receiverfhip of the Land-tax for this city and county of Middlefex) he ad-dreffed to the L'veiy, as follows : " Gentlemen and Fe"Iiow Citizens, " I am always happy to meet you, when aflembled here ; particularly when any part of my condud is called in queftion. I now find myfelf called upon in a very extraordinary manner, by a News writer, in the name of the feveral Candidves for the office of Chamberlain of this Ci;y, " publicly to dtciare, whether I have gO','or \ have been promifed, the Receiverfhip of the Land Tax."    Now, Gentlemen, this > is a queftion that no man has a right to alk me.    As to anfwering the public ne^vs--' papers any thing I find iclative to me, it is my determined refolution never to do it, unJefs it is figned by a repuiable peifon : but, Gentlemen, if it wM be the kalt fatif-fadion to any one of tlie Candidate's-, or so any particular Li'veiyman, it is a lefj.ed that I thall be glad to ihe v them, and a.n both willing and ready to declare here, wita I have repeatedly done both publicly and privately for this week palt, that I have neither myfelf, or any peifon for me, to my knowledge, foliated for the Receiver-LJbip of the Land Tax ; nor has it ever been Offered me.   But that I may be clearly un-derflood, (for in every part of my conduct I love to be open and explicit) I do declare, that if it mould be the intention and refolution of Adminiitia.ion to feparate the Re ceiverfhip of the Land Tax, from the office of Chamberlain of London, and it ftiotild be offered to me; I lhall think myfelf as much at liberty to accept of it, as any one citizen of London."
