Copy of a Letter from a Gentleman at Perth to bis Friend at Berwick, Nov. I. ' Notwithstanding the Report you have heard of the ' Diiaffettion of our Townfmen, the following Inftance ' will fufficiently convince you of the contrary. Laft * Wednefday, being his Majefty's Birth-day, looMalt-' men and fome of the Trades-Lads, poifefs'd themfelves ' of the Church and Steeple, and began about Mid-day to ' ring- the Bells, as is ufual on that Day, which gave fo 4 great Offence to Mr. Oliphant of Gafk, who is ap-4 pointed Governor of the Town by the Pretender's Son, 4 that he Cent immediately to order them to defift ; their 4 Anfwer was, That they nxould continue ringirg till len at * Night; and in the Evening were Bonfires in the Streets, * and the Windows were illuminated, fuch as refufed to il-' luminate their Houfes had their Windows broke. About * Nine at Night our worthy Governor, by the Advice of � the Jacobites (affembled in the Council-houfe, in order 4 to defend about 400 Stand of Arms and Ammunition, "^which were left by the Fiench Convoy) fent fifteen ' armed Men to difperfe the Mob, as they called them, ' whojrred and wounded fome of the Townfmen ; upon 4 this, thrife in the Steeple lung the Fire-bell, and their ' r: lends beat to Arms; the People attack'd and foon dif-' a;rue_d_ their Invaders^ and belabour'd them moft hearti-4 ly ; about Mid-night they began to fue upon the Rebels ' in the Council-houfe, who return'd-the Fire; feveral of igs naere expelled fom the Citizens of 2 London. His Majefty can give 14 1. a Man, or any.Ad-vancc-Money he pleafes, and the Charge will te levied on the whole Kingdom, by Act of Pailiament, and both the Catholicks and Proteftants, and all his Majelly's other Subjects, mult pay their Proportion, as the Parliament, in their Wifdom, fhall order, Our Confent to pay fuch Money, will argue no great Merit in us, for we mull fubmit : But what I would propofe, is, to raife 1000 Men, as fuch Pay, as would procuie Men that 14I. Advance-Money; with common Pay, can have no Influence on ; this would be railing and paying Men for his Majelty's Service, that could not (confiftent with their WifJom) be raifed by the King and the Parliament: But We, with hi, Majefty's Leave, may raife fuch Men, if we are as wi'liug to p.:rt with our Guineas, as to fign Addreffes. If it be objected, that fuch Men will be of little Ufe, to be employ'd within Ten Miles of London only, cannot the Conditions at En-lifting be, that they fhall march to Edinburgh, or whenever they can be ierviceable ? If they were not intended by my firft Plan, to be under Military Difcipline; cannot we enliit them to be fubjedt to the fame Dilcipline as his Majefty's Marching Regiments ? Nothing is wanting, bi;t a true Spirit to begin-All Objections are caTily removed. 1 am far from thinking, that new-raifed Men, can be very ufeful at prefent, unlets joined wish .the main Army' (1 made my Eftimate only agreeable to the Intention of the Gentlemen at Garraway's; for, if the Rebels fhould again p meet Succcfs, we can hare no great Hopes, from new-ndj'd ^ Men, that may be placed to oppefe them in their Progrefs : t-t for, tho' many Skirmifhes may happen, Numbers beflairt, yet, & in this, and all Countries, there are Numbers c� People without Property : If the Rebels came' to our Gates Victoriou:, they may enter with greater Numbers than came with them from Scotland: Therefore all new-rais'd Men fhculd march to the Army : Rebellion fhould be flopped where it rcfe, and pulied up by the Roots, ai Weeds are, in a good Flower-garden.
