From the London Gaz;tte. Derlyy Dec. 8. The Rebels behaved tolerably well in their March Southwards, but iiave plundered the Country in their Retreat. Many of the beft Houfes here have fufFered. Two of them were taken with their Arms, between Afbourn and Derby, by a Farmer and two Boys, and were fent to the Camp at Meriden Common. In thii Town they dc-nanded Billets for 10,000 Men, bat thofe who computed their Numbers as exaftly as poffible affiire us, that they did not exceed Six thoufand three hundred Horfe and Foot. The Horfe were extremely jaded, and in a bad Condition. In the Number above were many old Men, and Boys of fifteen and fixteen Years of Age, all without Shoes and Stockings. Co'ventry, Dec. 9. The Rebels were at Aihboum on Saturday Morning, and went to Leek that Night. Before they left Aihboum they fhot two Men, one of whom died on the Spot. They have taken all the Horfes they could lay their Hands upon, and have plundered and done great Damage, They had 15 Pieces of Gannon, and one Mortar. Majisfieldy Dec. 9. By an Exprefs juft arrived from ^* Leek there is an Account, that 1000 of the Rebels march-^ed laft Night from thence for Macclesfield, afld that at Q Six-this Morning the main Body began to march the P_, fame Way, and their Artillery at Eight Q Stafford., Dec. 9. The Van Guard of the Rebels Was in y-T Manctiefter Yefterday, and their main Body at Maccles- ^ field. 'Warrington, Dec. 10. By a MefTenger fent out of this Town to obferve the Motions of the Rebels we hear, that their Foot and Baggage pafled by Pendleton Pole, which is one Mile from Mancbeller, this Morning, and took the Road which leads to Leigh, Wigan and Prefton. The fame Meflenger infotms us, that he was told the Horfe defign'd to ftay in Manchefter all Night ; but we have fince heard, that their whole Body have left Man-chefter, and taken the above Road. Litchfield, Dec. 11. We have Advices here, that the Rebels left Manchefter Yefterday, marching Northwards ; and that his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland had made two forc'd Marches after them, and continued in Purfuit of them. ExtraH of a Letter from Brouchtiey 29 N:-vetnber \ 745. ' I received yours, in which you complain that we have * not entered into Aifociations here, as they have done in .* England. At that Time it was not in our Povyer, on * Account of the Grand AiTociation, but as foon as the Re^ * bels left this Country, I addrefs'd myfelf tb my Neigh- * bours with Succefs; for I prevailed on the Provofts, the * fe'ther Magiftrates, and Inhabitants of Brouchtie, Bancho-� ria^ Peter Culter, Sandend, Dyce, Garcock, Inch, * Oyne, Raincy Tarves, Ne^burgh, Skirdufton, Strichen, � Auchtcrlefsj Banes-holcj Tetterletter, Daucot, Aber-' chirder, Gowkftohes, andDalquarchie. The above Pa- rifhcs, one with another, can fend 300 good Ibut brave Fellows each. They have provided Al-Ms for themfelves, and are to ferve four Months on their own Expences. befides them there will be 300 Men from Metrofs Slate-Quarry, and as many from the Quarries of Culfamond. � They will join the noble Earl of Loudon, and we hope  will give a good Account of the Rebels at Perth'. Our  greateft Fear is, that they will march South to join their  Feliow Rebels; but if they do, we ftiall take care how  'they return. We are hopeful before this comes to your  Hand, that the brave Duke of Cumberland has entirely ' routed the Rebel Army in England, and then Marfhal ' Wade's Forces, and our loyal AffociatorsAvill have the ' Perth Rebels betwixt two Fires. By what you write, I ' judge the Englifh think all Scotchmen Rebels. God for-' bid J and as it is not fo, I am forty they fhould judge fo ' uncriaritable of a whole populpus Kingdom, for a few ' milled and defperate Men, who hitvc done us a Favour in ' leaving the Country.'

To the 0 U B' Lv I G K. SINCE the Government has given Orders for killing th6 diftemper'd Cows, upon the fir.t Appearance of their Difeafe, which is certainly the feadieft and mo ft feciire Method that can be propofed ^or the Prefervatiort of thfe remaining Cattle,' and for the Benefit of the Community in general. I ftilU therefore ofF^r a Method from whence I apprehend the Succefs may be no fefs, than to fecure the found Cattle (that otherwife might be liable to catch the In-fedlion) from being tainted with the pfefent fatal Epidemical Malignancy. Thsre have been Variety of Prefcriptions offer'd for this Pui^ofe, and many of thsm with little Profpeia of Succefs ; but it is not to be quellion'd what has been generoufly madfe knoM to the public by the Phyficians nauft bear a Sandlion fuitable to their extenfive Knowjedg^ .arid Experience ; however as no Difeafe, can be"* confi^'d to the Cure of any one or two Prefcriptions, I fliall upon thac footing Venture to declare my Sentiments thereon, having no other Intention but for the" public Benefit j that is in the firft place to bleed the Cattle bel'ore any Symptoms a^pe^r, becaufe it can be but of little Service when after^ as. the invenom'd Juices are fpread threugji t^ie Texture of .the Blood, and the Beaft weafesied in proportion to the ST �-3 A D V F-R T IS E M E N T S are taken in for this'PapeF, at Lloyd's Coffet-House, in Lombard-Street, No Wpoden SIk^s.- No Arbitrary Power, ;
