Wiod N^byfB. Grafight I arrived at tny Houfe from Rochdale in * Lancafhirej and between that Town and Manchqffer * rode through a great Part of the Highland Army ; and * I proteft I never faw fuch fhabby Fellows, man)- without � C oaths to cover their Nakednefs, marching in a greait ' hurry for Warrington ; their Mufick eonfiued cf Bag-� pipes and Hornsand could every hbneft Briton behold * fo contemptible a Crew of Banditti, attempting to ovef-' throw a Proteftant and free Government^ he would be ' aftoniftied at their Impudence and Vanity;' Notwithftanding the following Letter did not come tb Hand fo fbbn as we coald hive wiih'd, yet as it was wrote by a plain honeft Man to be depended upon, and contains more Particula s of the FaiTage of theRebe:s tho' Kendal, then have yet appeared to thePublick, we,have inferted it. Kendal, Konj. 29. * My laft that I had wrote to you I was obiiged to burn, * the Rebels being upon us, before !� could get it out of * Town ; They came here TaU Tburfday Night about Six * o'clock the Vanguard only, confifting of 112 Horfe as � near as I could couni them^ they told us 20oeir Leaders, ' that when they came to England all the Kingdom ' would rife for them ; but none join'd there exc^t two ' ' Papifts. V/e have taken as much Care as poflfole to ' know their Numbers ; but cannot make in the whole ' above 6;oo: And altho' fome^of the Highlanders ap-' pcar'd to be ftout hardy Fellow?, well arm'd with < .Swords, Piflols, Darks, &c. yet Part of them were fuch ' defpicablc poor Wretches, that I v/as iurprized their � Leaders were not aftiam'd to head fuch a Crew ; arsd ' their Mufkets in general feem'd but very indifferent. <--We reckon about 100 deferted from this Town. ' They may Irave about 300 Horfe amongft them, tht ciiief * cf which they ftole as they came along, ,4's to their * Behaviour, it was as good as we expected, they ccllefted ' more Money, in the Town of the King's Duties tlian ^ ' they paid, eating and drinking at fundryj Houfes to the q � Value of tliree, fjur, and five Pounds. 'I'hey promis'd * fair, but perforra'd notlung, graniir.g Prote�lions for ^ ' Houfes and Horfes, and immediately after plundering o � the one and ftealing the other. I'hey ea% lie and ^ ' march like a Parctl cf Swine under no Df.inline cr :3 � Conimard j and have fiU'd our Houfes with Lice, and Cu � our Streets with a Stink: Several have come back, ^ ' and our Tiadefmen, &c. have difarm'd them ; and aye * < gene out this Night to watch for more. They give < out that they are pafTing forward for Wale?, where great ' Numbers are to join them, and then they will march ' for London ; where they expedl the Gates to be oper^'d ' to them and the Crown deiiver'd without Bloodfhed, ' even impudently afferting that fome of the Parliament ' were their Friends. This is what the CQmmon fort tell ' us, and we are oblig'd to hear it without Contradiftion. ' But many of the better fort of that Tribe feem vex^d � in their Minds, and fay they are in the Nett, and its too ' late to look back, and that they cannot accept cf ' Quarter, tho' they will give it; lb that if there be * a Battle, we exped it to be a Bloody one. We h�ar ' nothing of Wade or Legonier, the Pcfts to us being ' flopp'd.' .' riome of our good Neighbours had inform'd the * Rebels of our independent Companies that were under � Arms, on King George's Birth-Day and we had all our ' Guns taken from us. I was oblig'd to deliver up twi ADVERTI-SEMENTS arecaken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-House, in Lombard-Screec. No Wooden Shoes. No Arbitrary Pow-er.
