Th^ Infantry in Garrifon here Q have continued under Arms, all the Uaards have been doubled, and every "Bbdy from Flandgrs is rigorotrily ex-aminedbefore they are admitted into the City. Moreover, y as we are perfuaded that the Confervation of this Capital /i and Antwerp depends upon keeping the Entreftchmehts along the Canal, a Refolution has been taken to plant oii , them the Dutch Artillery, which is in our Park, "and to canton the Troops from Efcarbeck to Willebroek. A Detachment of 30 Huffars, that had bcenfent towards Aeth to get Intelligence, returned the Day before Yefterday, and report, that all the Advice given by,Spies concerning the Retreat of the French are entirely faife.

Another Body of the Rebels, of about 2000, marched Yellemight from the Eflc to Ecclefechan, and flaid there all Night. The Mac Pherfons were of this Party, and Lord Ogilvy was with them.
