Thurfday laft, being the Anniverfary of his Majefty's Birth-D.iy, when he enter'd into the 64th Year of his Age, the fame was celebrated here after the moft loyal arid joyful Manner. The Morning being uiher'd in with Ringing of Bells; and at Noon, Brigadier Cholmondeley's Regiment (quarter'd in this Town) were . drawn up cm the bandhill, where they made a fine Ap-  pearance, and give, three general Difcharges of jheir ; Fire Arrns ; between which, Godblefs KingGeorge, tbtPrince ' and Princefs of IVale's, the Duke, and all the RoyalFamify,V/ii ; loudly JuiZrZa'd to, by the whole Regiment, &c.

Yefterday Morning about "Eight o'Clock. a Fite hap-pea'dat Hammond Crofe'siE%at Millbank, Weftminfter, occafisn'd by.the.Head ohthesStill fl�ing off; but by timely Afuftaace it wa* happily extinguished, witheut doing any confiderable Damage. and Lommifftry of Stores at Carlifle, viz. The Council for the Crown produced Witnelles to prove Abernethy's ailing as a Captain in Carlifle : One fwore him Prefident of a Court-Martial held there, at which two Officers were broke : Another fwore he faw him fet Fire to a Cannon planted on the Walls of Carlifle, which was pointed at the Duke's Army : And others fwore, he afted as a-Commif-fary of Stores there, and produced Bills and Receipts with his Name as fuch. In hii Defence he jleaded, " Hehad been of fingular Service to his Majefty npon the prefent Occafion, m various Shapes; and the hra Witnefs call'd was General Cope, who heirtg afk'd by the Prifoner's Council if he knew him ; he replied No, but ddfired that publilh'd in this Paper fjmc Time fince. THER E is no Doubt but the Genoefe, lrng before this Time, had given-them fufficient OccaP.on to revolt from their Obedience. It rarely happens otiierwife, where a.People have been long under the Government of a Foreign State, and fu'-j^ft to the Will of rapacious Viceroys, who have fcldom any Thing farther in View, during their Commiffions, than to advance their private Fortunes, on the Spoils of their Fellow-Creatures. Nor is this any where fo bad as under a Repu'^lick, fuch as Genor, where Men who commit tfrefe Outrages are often at the Head of the Legidature at home, and have commonly might not prejudice the Prifoner, as his Stay was fo fhort, 1 Intereft enough among their Fellow Senators, to prevent and he faw To. many People, that he could,not poffible re- c_~.,;,, mr, t^,;r Miu^&Ai^-.^ia^^^^ ... rafember different races : He was afk'd, if he remember'd being at BamfF, and what AfliUance he met with there ? He laid, he re'member'd being thee, and that he was fiir-nifhed with a Number of Carriages and H^r/es by the Ma-giftrate, and that-poflibly the Prifoner might be the>Man that was a&ive in that Service. Abernathy's Council t&en produced WitnefTej to prdve him the only ac~kipg'Magif-trate at that Time, the others (vrz. the Provoft^nd-the Bailiffs) being fickor abfent. Another Witnefs pro v'd, that one Capt. Rogers ferit (a few Days before the General camethere) upon extraordinary Bufinefs, Wanting Horfes, was furriilh'd by the Piriibfler, anddireaed by him to go,a tffdiwntiRoad-to.whBt he was lorder'd, to prevent his felling into"*ftieHinds' of th*Rebels. As-to his Gondttiftat Car-lifle, the Priforrer callvd a Shop-keeper, flrhohad'recerVed  confiderable Damage from fome of the Rebel Army; but upoa his making: A'ppiic'atfflfa tohim, 4iegtamed fhein a an Enquiry into their Male-Adfniniftrations, and to ftifle the juft Complaints of the Ihjured and OpprifTed. There was a great Deal of good Senfe therefore in the Corficarts fcrte Declaration ; ' That they were lefolved to have a ' King of their own, who (booid refide among t,nem, and ' be at Hand to redrefs thelirievances of his People, as ' a Father thofe of hisCnildren ; that his S:ns being botb  and educated among them, would become Natives of ' their Kingdom, and cOnfcquently hav^thelntoeft of the  Cornmtmiiy at; Heart; fince they could have *o other � Dependence but oft the Afie&iwrof their Peoj e.' Every honeftSoul, that has a true Stnfe of Li' e ty, a..d Horror of aJl oppreffive Mealares, will be ready to applaud their Conftancy, and to wiftt fach a Reward of it, as every brave and virtuous Peeple diuflrbe thought to defcrve.
