' 1 am told by a good Hand, that the Rebels, fure of * Viftory, had. before the Aftion near Culloden, feat up- * wards of 1000 Men to the Borders of the Spey, to in- * tsrcept and deftroy all the Elector's Troops (as they * call'd them) in the Flight,- but thank God their Devices ' are confounded, -to the Immortal Honour of his Royal * Highnefs the Duke, and the Tranquillity of this Coun-� try.

ExtraSi of a Letter from Dover, May 1. ' This Morning arrived here the York Privateer, Capt.

' This Morning nine Deferters from the Irifh Regiments in the French Service, landed here from Boloign ; they came over in a Boat, which they feiz'd, with two French Seamen in her.' One Hundred and Fifty Matrofles are draughted out of the Train at Woolwich for Portfmouth, where they are to embark with the Troops on a fecret Expedition; Laft Week the Rev.

Vork> April 19. We are inform'd, that an horrid Con* fpiracy of the Papifts in Northumberland, &c. has been difcovered, which was to have feized Newcaftle, and maf-facred the Proteftants there, if the Rebels had gained any Advantage (which they had promifed themfelves) over the King's Fprces. We forbear to mention the Names of thofe, who, it is faid, were engaged in it, till we have a Certainty of the Truth of it.

Extrail of a Letter from a Gentleman at Edinburgh, to the Author of the General Advertifer. SIR, " I fend you a Comparifon of Two Characters, drawn " here by Mr. F-, which we think not unfit to " open the Eyes of all Jacobite Ladies. tte P A R A L L E L. IN Years, Strength and Activity they were nearly equal; both too poffefs'd the fame Conftancy of Spirit, and th courted Renown with the fame Ardor, but in different Ways. William in Acts of Beneficence had no Superior; Charles in the Practice of Tyranny had no Equal. Humanity was the diftinguifhing Characteriftic of the one ; and Military Execution the known Badge of the other. William was celebrated for his Bravery; Charles for his Chaf-tity. The former loek'd Danger in the Face like a true Hero; the latter hid himfelf from it like his Father's Son. The latter we admire as a fine Runner; the former as an excellent Purfuer. William, in fhort, had a Sweetnefs of Difpofiticn, an innate Courage, a Fund of Good-Senfe, and Good-nature, which made him ador'd by the Soldiers and efteem'd by all others; with a noble Love of Glory, which he purfued only in the Paths of Virtue and Honour: His chief Ambition was to command at the Head of Armies, there to fignalize his Military Virtue, as the Scourge of Tyranny and Unrighteous Power. The ruling Paffion of Charles was to gain a Crown, and avoid a Cofiin: He vied not in Honour with the Worthy, nor in Courage with the Brave ; but was not inferior in Pride to the moft Haughty, in Plunder to the moft Rapacious, or in Falfehood to the moft Perfidious : He lov'd the Men better than the Women ; and yet, which is wonderful, the lefs he courted the Ladies, the fafter they followed hjm. On the Defeat of the Rebels. AS his worm-eaten Volumes old Time tumbled o'er, To review the great Actions which happpen'd of Yore, When the Names of young Amman and Cafar he faw, He fmil'd, but foon turn'd to a Churchill, Najfau, With a Sigh then he faid, What! has Britain no Friend ! " With Thefe muft her Long Race of Heroes haveEndJ" When inftant a Blaft on her Trumpet Fame blew, Which fo long had been filent the Sound he fcarce knew ; Full confefs'd to his Sight then the Goddefsappear'd, And half out of Breath, cry'd, " The News have you " heard? " Father Time, I've one Hero to add to your Store, " Brave William has conquer'd, Rebellion's no more !" Well pleas'd, in his Annals Time wrote down the Name, Made the Record Authentic, and gave it to Fame. IRELAND. Dublin, April 26.

The Reprefentation of the Battle near Culloden-Houfe* has met with fuch univerfal Applaufe from Crowded Audiences, that the Proprietor of the New Wells in Good-man's-fields, takes this Opportunity, to return his humble Thanks for their kind Appearances; and as he fpares no Expence to make his Performances agreeable to the Town, he hopes for their further Indulgence.
