A Gentleman arrived in a Cartel Ship from Morlaix, gives an Account, that the Brifliol Privateer, is taken by the Elizabeth, a French Man of War. Alfo, That the Black Prince Privateer, of Leverpool, (faid to be the beft Ship hitherto fitted out for that Purpofe) re taken by the Mercury, a French Man of War. And That the Indultry Privateer of Jerfey, is taken by the La Count Privateer, belonging to Bourdeaux ; and are all three carried into Breft. There is Advice, that the Elizabeth of London, Nairne, from Antigua, was taken by the Argonaut'Man of War ; but ftruck upon a Rock at the Ifle of Bafs, and funk, before they could get her into Harbour. The Speedwell, Clark, from Virginia ; and Heroine,-.. , from Oporto, both for London, are taken by the French. The Prince of Orange, Camell, from St. Kitts, laft from Torbay, for London, is taken and carried into Calais. The Friendfhip, from Barbadoes for London, fprung a Leak, and is put into Bofton. The St. Thomas, Kent, from St. Kitts for London, is ftranded near Galway ; but moft of the Cargos will be faved. Edward Vaughan, Efq; is unanimoufly chofen Knight of the Shire for the County of Glamorgan ; in the room of Sir Nicholas Williams, Bart. deceas'cL On Sunday Night the Right Hon. the Earl of Barrymore arrived at his Houfe in Henrietta-ftreet, from his Seat in Chefhire. Laft Saturday the Lord Winchefter appointed the Rev. Mr. Alexander Canfield to be a Preacher of that Cathedral. On Sunday laft was married at Trinity Church in the Little Miriories, Mr." William Cottle of L�adenhall-Market, to Mifs Sukey Stevenfon, Daughter of Mr. Ste-venfon, an eminent Fifhmonger of the fame Place, a very agreeable young Lady with a handfome Fortune. On the 28th part died at Camberwell in Surrey, after a few Hours Illnefs, Mrs. Mary Gregory ; and on Sunday her Corpfewas carried from thence to be interr'd at Wcot-ton in Oxfordfhire. On Thurfday laft died fuddenly at Ecclefhall in Stafford-fhire, Richard-Edwin Venables, a Gentleman poffefs'd of a plentiful Ellate in that County. Laft Night a new Song call'd The Subfcription was performed at the Theatre-Royal in Drury-lane ; written by Mr. Mozeen, and fet to Mufick by Mr. Arne, which was received with univerfal Applaufe. Letter from Dumfries, 03. 27. S I R> . . � . 1 The. Ship that arrived laft Week at Mpntrofc was a fmall Privateer, 70 Men and 5 Pdfenger?; one of whom is Monf. Boyer, faid to be an Envoy to congratulate at this Time, and to enquire into the young Man's Affairs, and how far it may be proper for Foreign Powers to embark more openly ift his Projedt: The Veff.1 brought over 1 200 Stands of Arms, zooo Wt. of Gun-powder, and Lewis d'Ors to the Value of 15*000 1. or more : A Mite of Cdmfort on this Occafion, for Finances were low. But their Joy was much abated on hearing that Lord Loudon was in the North; and was getting together a confidefable Body of Men; 2000 of Grants, Monroes, &c. which the Prefident of theSeffion had fc-cured, and the Campbells of Argyll and Braidalbin. A Rumour prevail'd too, that Admiral Byng was fail'd to the North with 5000 Marines, If all this is true, 'tis a mortifying Stroke upon them; beeaiife it will hinder their parting the Forth, mould they retreat, and prevent theiK Reinforcements from coming dowft. Some fuch Piece of News difconcerted them much^ for one Day they had five Councils, and called in all their Out-parties, which were bringing in Contributions. A Party was at the Duke of Douglafs's, where they got fome Anns and a little Money, not confiderable; for the Duke had been apprized of their Defign. As to their Numbers, I take the Report from a very curious Gentleman, who counted them at the greateftReview they eyer had, which amounted to 4000. There Was about 1800 more he judged oh' Guard, and at I.eith, belides fzoo Volunteers, and the Body-Guards. There are betwixt 3 and 4000 of thefe Good Men in all Refpe&s, the reft are not murh to be depended upon, many old, who yet will fight, others young, raw and weak. They have taken all from 12 or 14 to 70. 1 here are nine Troops of Horfe-Guards of 12 Men each, and very unequal in Size. I leave) pu to imagine what the Court is: Whatever they may want in this Refpeft, a great deal of Secrecy and Art is ob-ferved among themy for every Day they are doing or giving out fomething to conceal their real Intentions, which hitherto have not been difcovered. They feem to wait the Succefs of Mr. Kelly's Negotiations, who has been fuppofed to be at Paris fince the Battle: And 'tis*-, pretended, that when our Army enters Scotland, they will endeavour to get paft them byCarlifle, being able to out-march any regular Forces, having no heavy Baggage, but all upon Horfes. In the prefent Poilure of Affairs, dreading to be fo6n betwixt two Fires, we have' fome Hopes to be delivered from Contribution, for un-lefs they fend a large Body to demand it, which they cannot eafily do, moft People are of Opinion, that we fhould give them a civil Refuial. A gojd many deferf, and few move will join them, fince Lord Loudon is in the Highlands. Without ah Invafion they muft link, and I would fain hope, they are at their Height. Some few are it ill joining them from, the Low-Country, but they are fuch; and brought in by fuch Methods, as will not llrengthen their Caufe: Nothing is io heavy to them as that no' People of Capacity, Fortune or Inttreit tome in to them When I write all this, it is not tj make, you quite eafy, an Invafion is ftill to be dreaded, and in order to fettle the Peace of the Country as foon as poifiblc, the more ipeedy and vigorous Methods fhould be ufedv The Miniftersof Edinburgh continue firm in their Resolution not to preach;. A large Eody of the Volunteers went to Holvrood-houfe, in Confcquence of a Proclamation for that EfFeft, to make their Submitlion,- but would not do it upon the Terms propoled, which are [not ft tj be here infrted\ After collecbng all Circumiiances,-it appears plain enough that the-of Edinburgh ha? not done right. . The young Man was invited into the Town, and all Means taken to difcourage and defeat the Mcafures of thofe who would have defended it, for till the Highlanders got the City-Arms, and "what their Friends fupplied them with, they could do nothing, except wish their.Sworqs, which were ufelefs againit ^tone-Walls. Edinburgh is a Derbiation, ho Buhnefs, no People, except Highlanders; the Country round is quite pillaged, and every Body robbed. The poor Creatures complain many of them that they were forced out, and they fight for they do not know what, having no Principle, or Knowledge of the Perfon for whom they hazard themfelves. One of them,- having a laced Veil on, and hV of a better Rank than the Herd, being afk'd what Religion P- C-was of? anfweiec, He did no. well ken, but he bel'wvt him nxias a Sbacobite. I'm in-form'd that if was propofed to arm as many of theii1 Men as they could with Blunderbuffes, and that Ordeis' were given to make a great many Scull-caps of Copper. -I find I haV'e now emptied my Budget, ar*! this is per- 2S O O n Mi O CO p V E R T IS E MliNTS are taken in tor this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-House, in Lombard-Street.
