'Charles-Town, January 18. HE Indians who murdered the Settlers at Long Canes, are now undeniably known to be Creeks ; and it like wife appears that they are not or the Mortar's gang, fo that the number of our enemies among them is greater than was imagined.

That part of the Savoy which lies within the Liberty of the Duchy of Laneafter, having been long neglected, whereby many of the houfes are gone into decay, from a mif-taken notion that no perfon had a privilege to ' demand, rents or remove tenants after they got poffeffion, whereby the tenants' or poffef-iors have occupied thefe many years rent free: To remedy this, fp that that centrical and well-Jituated place of this metropolis may be put in the poffeffion of people of character and -b.ufmefs, we hear the prefent Chancellor of that Duchy (the Right Hon. the Lord strange) ha#made it appear, that the rents of thefe houfes are aperquifite annexed to his office,& and foon intends to remove many of the prefer) t poffeffors, and let thofe houfes that are-decayed upon building leafes, whereby that part of the town will become more advantageous and ufeful; by which his Lordfhip will draw 2C00I. per ann. from that part of the Savoy which lies in the liberty of the Duchy. We hear his Majefty's intereft in the above eft:�te is under confideration, and will- foon be determined by the Judge*. We are informed, that the expence of rebuilding Newgate, according to the propofed plan, will be 30,0001. but as the county has oppofed paying any part of the expence, it is thought that this, like many other falurary fchemes, will, on account of a want of a fuf-ficient fund to execute it, be entirely laid afide,. Yefterday feveral notorious perfons that were taken up for robbing waggons at Inns, and alfo charged with committing divers other robberies, were examined at the New Guild--" hall, Weftminfter; when one Lloyd, belonging to the gang, was admitted an evidence, and they were all committed to New Prifon ; as was Richard Swift for receiving the goods, knowing them to be ftolen. At Cambridge affizes, James Humphreys, a Carpenter, was capitally convi&ed of ftealing 1 a black gelding, with a-bridle and faddle On, J from Mr. Edward Chapman, of Foxton.
