Lloyd's Evening Post (Newspaper) - March 19, 1764, London, Middlesex S EVENING POSf; Vol. XIV.] From MONDAY, March 19, to WEDNESDAY, March 21, 1764. [Numb. 1044* TUESDAY, March 20. A M E R I C A. Charles-Town, (South Carolina,) Jan. 25. HE reafon why the Albama fort was not garrifoned by theBritifh troops was, that fuch. a meafure appeared not only unneceffary, but that fending fo many Bri-\ tifh fubje&s thither was only giving them as hof-tages to the Indians. The French all left the faid fort fome months ago. By letters from the frontiers we learn, that the Irifh Settlers who came over kit year are in great diilrefs; the people round them have left their fettlements, but they cannot do the fame, becaufe they have neither horfes nor waggons to remove their children and provi-fions, and have neither fire-arms nor ammunition to defend themfelves. They have applied to Mr. Mayfon, at Ninety-Six, befeech-mg him to fetch them away. Neva York, Jan. 26. Tuefday lafi Melts. Jofeph and Richardfon Cornell, of this city, fhop-keej>ers, abfconded, having �rlt taken UP goods from different Merchants of this place-to the amount of 7000I. and converted the greateft part of them into ready cam. Newtfenk, Feb. 2. We have it from the very beft authority, that Sir "William Johnfon was lately vifited by 300 friendly Indians of the Five Nations; as alfo by fome Deputies from the Senecas, who were accompanied by one Hans Eife, a German, formerly taken near Fort Cumberland, and delivered up, with fe-veral other prifoners, to Sir William about two years ago : but, being a profligate per-fon, immediately made his efcape to the Senecas, whom he has firice accompanied, by his own confeffion, to war againil the Eng-lifh, and committed feveral acts of cruelty, by the report of others.-On which information Sir William caufed him to be apprehended and committed to Albany gaol. And has alio obtained from a village of Friendly Senecas, one Gabriel Ellifon, an Engliih-man, who fays he has relations in Bucks county, in the province of Pennsylvania, and was taken in November 1762, and carried to Kanawagan, a caflle of Enemy Senecas, from whence 'he made his efcape to Kanadafego, a caftle of friendly Indians of that nation (next to Cayuga) which Indians having remained neuter during the late b futilities, have now delivered him up at Sir William John-fon's requeil.
