Befides a Courier which pafs'd by here from Vienna, another is gone from Dreiden with very irapqrtant Dilpatches for the Briginnick Court, and a fdSond is to follow him. Yflfterday Mr. Ratcliffe, jun. and the other Officers, who were lately difcharg'd from the Tower, embark'd on board a Ship in the River for France. Ext raft of a Letter from EdinburghApril the gth. ' This Day we hive Advice, that his MajctVs ship the Sheerr.els was arrived at Aberdeen on SunJay iait, from a Cruize, and had with her two Prizes, one the Providence of Boilonin New-England, one'Sin-" clair Matter, who pretended to be bound 10 New-England with Lead, Sec. but 'tis thought intended for trie Rebels; and the Veffd late the Hazard bloop of War, (by the Rebels caii'd the Prince Charles) who the Sheer-nefs chae'd on Shore, in the North cf Scotland ; as ioon as fhe wasafhore the Officers arid Men iandw?; with"'" 12,500 Guineas, and forrie Silver; but were" made Pri-foners foon after by the Hon. George Mackay, Son m-the Lord Rae, after a fmart Refiftahce. 1 he Hazard was got off again with very little Damage, and the P-rifoners taken re-fhip'd, and are brought round in her to Aberdeen. The Right Hon. the Lord Rae arrived here laft Night from the Nortft. . ' We are informed that the three Ships which were cruizing off Holy Iiland, and reporteu to be French Men of War, (and put us in pain for the Tranfports with the four Regiments of Foot) prove to be Dutch Men of War, ordered to reinforce the Squadron on this Coail, under the Command of Commodore Smith.' ' Our Accounts from the North agree, that there are great Diffentions among the Rebel Chiefs, who have found it difficult to keep the Common People quiet, for want of their Pay ; but they aflured them there waa^ France to give an Account of the Skirmifh at Falkirk. The Siege of Blair Athol was rais'd on the Approach of the Heflians ; and we hear, that Sir Andrew Agnew and his Party had been forced to fubfift for fome time on Horfe Flefh ; and were determin'd that nothing bat Famine-fliould compel them to furrender.-The Rebels are calling in all their Parties, with what View is not known ; they are in want of Money, and it" is "TaTff'tTre? " French begin to defert, for want of Payment ; and the Lofs of the Hazard muft encreafe their Wants. The Lorrl Prefidentan'd.the Earl of Loudon are in the rflebf Skier with 900 of their- beft .Men; they have VeiTels,fuffieientF' and purpofe to embark for. Argylefhire. The Pretender has been, and is ftill very ill at Invernefs, of an Infla-mation in his Throat, (as well as his- Brain). Some People give out that they are determjn'd to mjakeXa Hand at Invernefs ; but their Motions afiguncertauj/"and their Schemes fo deep laid, that it is fcarce poffible to know what they intend.' ; Yefterday it was confidently afferted, that a large Party of the Rebels had laid down their Arms, and fubmitted to his Royal Highnefj the Duke. We are affured, che Waters of the Spey being funk, the Army had pofitive Orders to march on Tuelday laft towards Invernefs, as we have already rr.enticn'd. This is the Birth-Day of his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland, which, 'tis not doubted, will be celebrated by all who wiih well to the Caufe of Liberty. On Sunday the Pool, Ludlow-Caftle, and Taviftock Ships of War, with the Diligent, Borden, a re-taken Ship by his Majefty's Ship the Pembroke.-The fame Day the Milford Man of War arrived there, -with the Ships under her Convoy from the Downs.

On Sunday laft died near Afton, Mrs. Barrett, Wife of -Barett, Efq; much efleem'd by all that knew her. . On Saturday Nightas one Samuel Martin, a Carpenter, was going thro' Tyburn-Road, he was ftopt by two Ruffians, who dragg'd him on a Dunghill near the Place, and robb'd him of 14 s. and got off undHcover'd.
