' We receive hourly News of the Defertion of the Re-� bels, infomuch, that the Pretender's Son has not one ' thoufand Men with him ; thole he has are gone to Lo-chaber, and there are two thoufand of our Foot after them, bcfide the ArgyllfhL-emen. This Morning march'd from hence four Regiments or Foor, and one ot Dragoons. They crofs'd the River 7ay here, and are marching to Dundee, and from thence dow n the Coaft towards Montrofe, where AdmiralByng has landed fome Sailors, and taken PoiTeflion of that Town. 1 hey can get no Succours from France, as the Cbali is all lecur'd, io \ve may conclude the next Step the Rebels will take will be up the Ladder. We conclude his Royal High-nek will go no farther North : General Bland coni-1 nunds the Detachment that march'd this Morning.* From the London Gazette. Ztoelhokt, Jan. 21, O.S. The general Conversation of this Town turns on the Dilafters which have befallen the Swedifh Officers,, engaged by the French Ambaffador, face they left this Place. Fifteen or fixteen of them,, by former Accounts, had been put in Goal for Exceffes committed by them on the Roadto Gottenbourg; and we hear fince, that feven or eight more are run away to Norway, for Fear of being taken up for Debt: Some have been wounded by the Boors, fome havq been drowned, and one Wallin, Son of the Bifhop of Gottenbourg, has been killed upon the Spot, in a Rencounter with another Officer, under the Walls of his Father's Houfe, who, happening to be at tha Window, and alfo his Mother, were Eye-Witneffes of their Son's tragical Death. On the 13th Inftant a Fire broke out at Gottenbourg. by which one Third of the Town has been confumed, and moft of the absvemen:ioned Officers loft treir Equipages j and according to the laft Letters, thofe Gentlemen, for Want of Lodging, have been obliged to repair on Board the Ship prepared for them; but we do not yet hear when they are hlail. Srxkbslm, Jan. 28, O.S. The Swedifh Officers are flill at Gottenbourg, and tho' we dj not hear any Orders are come for di (nulling them, yet it is generally believed that will be the End of this Affair, as our Advices from all . Parts fay, that the projected lnvafion from France upon' ' England i laidaiide. tyenb-igtri,'Feb. 15, N.S. An Ordonnsnce is juftpub-* liihed here, dated the 7th Inftant, N.S. which prohibits the Holding of Cattle-Markets in Jutland till farther Order, as a Mean* to prevent the Spreading of the Conta-*' gion in that Ptovince. The fame Precaution is iikewife oqferved in Zealand and Fuhnen. We have jaft received the following Advice, dated the 9th Inftant from Gotten-bourgh : By a ftrong Gale at N.W. laft Sunday, the Frederick, \vhich was to carry the Swedilh Officers, had the Misfortune to come a-ground between the Saw-Mill and the Old Caftle, and now that we have low Waters, there is not above eight or nine Foot where fhe lay?, tho* fhe would require four or five Feet mere to fet her afloat.-Yefterday they were taking put her Guns. Thiers is great Reafon ^o believe that (he was bound for North-Britain; becaufe People have been tamper'd with togo with the faid Ship, under Pretext that file might poffibly happen to be driven on that Coaft. H*guc, Fb. 2z. N.S. By Letters from Brabant arrived fince laft Poll, the French had made an Attempt upon Fort Monterey with a �)etachment of two or three thoufand Men ; but hr.d met with fo much Oppofoion, that they drew eff again with confiderable Lofs. The Prince of Waldtck marched Yefterday from Mechlin towards Bfuf-fels, with all the Troops he cpuld get together. This Morning the Council of Srate pronounced tneir fuial'Sen-v tence upon Colonel Appius, and the reft of the Dutch Officers, under Profecution for Misbehaviour at the Battle of Fontenoy, and declared them all Cowards (the Dutch Term is Schelm, the heavieft Note of Infamy that can Tie" inflifted on any Military Perfon who is left alive) banifhed them for ever, under Pain of Death, out of the Seven Provinces, and the Diftrift of the Generality^, with Con-fifcation ef their Goods, Eftates, &c. Willemjiadt, Feb. 23. We have Advice here by M. Chalmers, Lieutenant in Schonen's Regiment �this Service, that this Morning at Nine o'Clock he had met with and fpoke to the Major of Naflky's Dragoons, late of the Garrifon of Bruflels, who had tora-him, that he was fent Exprefs to the Hague by General Vander Duyn, to bring the States the News, that on the 19th the Garrifon of Brilffels had capitulated. That the Conditions were, that the Garrifon was to be Prifoncrs of War, their Arms to be depofttedin the Arfe-nal of BraiTels, till they were exchanged; the Baggage belonging to the Garrifon was tJ be fent to Antwerp, Breda and Maeftricht. The Briiilh Horfe-Guards and Horfe Grenadier Guards are on board, and the Blue Guards are now embarking. Montrofe, Feb. 9. The laft of the Rebel Army left this" i Place Yefterday at Noon; it is judged their Route is for \ Aberdeen. All to the Southward of this Place is now dear of them. It is generally thought the Pretender's Son was here, a Perlon having been brought into this Town, and kept very privately all Friday Night laft, and having moved oft before Day-light on Saturday Morning. The Party here confifted of about 100 Gentlemen, 50 of what they call the Life Guards, 20 HufTars, about 150 private Men, with Lord Elcho. Lord'George Murray lodged three Miles from this Place on Thurfday Night laft, and the fame Day Lord Pitfligo pafled by Brechin, and moft of the common Men, excepting, thofe of the Clans, went that Road.

This Afternoon at Four o'Clock two Ships came to an Anchor at about the Diftance of Half a League from this Place, one of which is fuppofed to be Admiral fiyng. , . Dunkeld, Feb. o, at Night. By a Country Man jnft now returned from Dalnacardoch, who had been, carrying Baggage fof the Rebels, there is an Account, that on Friday Night laft about 1000 of the Clans, with about 40 Gentlemen on Horftback, 50 Baggage Horfes, together with all the Prifoners carried from Falkirk, who were in a miferable Condition, fome wanting Shoes and Stockings, arrived at Dalnacardoch in their Way towards the North: That Yefterday their Artillery, with about 80 Cart Load of Baggage, was carried off from Blair, and. that it was given out that they were driving them to Rtithven in'Bad*- � denoch: That Yefterday in the Afternoon Lochiell, and fome other Gentlemen, marched Northwards: That very few Men remained about Blair but what belong'd to Lord Lewis Gordon's Regiment: That the pre&hded , Prince, and ;a: Number of Gentlemen, continued at plair this Morning, when the faid Countryman left that Place. All the Men-..prefled out of this Country have already made their Efcapes, and are returned home. The Rebels * as yet continue to keep out Guards as far as down thecals of Kiliychranky. Perth, Feb. 10. By Advices from Montrofe, the French, and a Number of Rebels, mawing together 700, upon feeing the Imppffibility of getting from thence by Sea,-as Admiral Byngwafch'd them fo clofely, (after nailing and fpoiling fome Cannon, which they could .riot carry from thence by Land) marched to Aberdeen and Peterhead. It is" not quite certain whether the Pretender's Son is actually at Blair, or incognito with his Other Party that is gone from Montrofe, but whatever the Reafon of it is, the Rebels give out that the is every Day hunting and hawking ; at Biair. The Dfike of Athol has publifh'd.a Declarafiion^^ requiring aH his Vaflals to come to Dunkeld and tOffit* Michael, and join the Troops fhat arelo bevfent tjjithe/jfo difarm and apprehend the Rebels, on Pa^ pf their being proceeded againft with the utmoft Severity' iir/Caf^pf Re-fufal. Yefterday General Campbell came hitheftQ^ meet his Royal Highnefs the Duke, and brought with him four Companies of Weftera Highlanders. Since writing the above, certain Intelligence is come in, that the Rebels had retired from Blair, upon our two Detachments taking Poft at Caftle Menzie anl Dunkeld;' It is now to be hoped, that they are fully prevented from forming a Corps any more, as wefhall have PofTeffion of Blair,which is the firft Place where they can rendezvous. Major General Campbell is to be Jent to the Weftern Highlands, whilft his Son remains here with 600 Highlanders to go upon Parties. As foon is we can Jay up our Magazines of Bread, we fhall march Northward by tbejggaft, q b� more affl^n^loilShd Detachteen'tsrhto the Hflh, as it wifl be impoffible for the whole Body to go that Way.
