This Court baviiig ordered a fmall ft Body of Troops near Exiles to cover that Fort, and ro: k yttmd the Siege ef it, M. >, Whitehall, Nov. 12. By an Exprefs this Morning from the North, there is an Account, that upon the gth in the Afternoon, about fifty or fixty of the Rebels, well mounted, 0 and thought to be Officers, appeared on a Hill called Standi wix Bank, clofe by Carlifle; that the CalUe of Carlifle fired 0 upon them, and that after fome Time they retreated : 7 that there were Accounts of different Bcdies-^ppearing in different Places near Carlifle : That their main Army was at Ecclefeighton, 16 Miles from thence: That they could not get the Artillery and Baggage forwards for Want of Horfes, but that they were collecting all that they could get every where, and that it was talked amongft them, that they were to pufh on Southwards. The whole Militia of the Counties of Cumberland and Wcflmorland were in Garrifon at Carlifle.. London, Nov. 12. This Day at one o'Clock the Sheriffs of this City, attended by their Officers, went to the Royal Exchange, and faw feveral treafonable Papers, figned by the Pretender and his Son, burnt there by the Hands of f the common Hangman, according to a Refolution of the Houfe of Lords and Commons, amidft the repeated Acckv-mations of a Prodigious N umber of People. ' ExtrctEl of a Letter from 'Newcaftle, Nov. 8. ' We hear, that the Commanders of the few Rebels who enter'd England, and proclaimed the Pretender, did not do it fo much on that Account, as to try whether the Highlanders would relifh marching into'England.-'-Tho' they have fince march'd Weftward, it is doubted whether they will come forward. The Chiefs of therji perfwade their deluded Followers that half the great People are on their Side ; and are continually obliged tb tell them fuchlike idle Stories, to keep them together.' On Saturday laft failed from Portfmouth his Majefty's Ship Kinfale, Capt. Loftus, with a large Fleet of Store-fhips, under his Command, for Cape-Breton. Yefterday it was reported that another Body of the Bri-tlfh Troops were landed from Flanders. We are inform*d, that when Col. Sowle's Regiment march'd from the Borough of Southwark, on Monday laft, about ioo Volunteers enter'd under the faid Colonel, agreeable to the Encouragement given by the Subfcription carried on there. And we are affured, that not lefs than 300 Men have enter'd into his Majefty's Service, by the Subfcription in St. Martin's Parifh. Yefterday the Chefterfield Man of War of Forty Guns launch'd a few Days ago at Mr. Bird's Dock, Rotherhith, was put into Commiflkm, and the Command given to Captain Gordon. Yefterday was launch'd, at Mr. Bird's Dock at Dept-ford, a Packet-Boat, intended to go between Falmouth and the Sugar Iflands, and call'd the Countefs of Leice-fter ; at which were prefent SirEverard Faulkner, and feveral Perfons of Diftindtion. The Command of her is given to Capt. Harman,many Years in the Weft-IndiaTrade. She is efteem'd to be finely contriv'd, as well for Sailing as A ccommodations. Next Friday will alfo be launch'd from the fame Yard, the Faulkner Packet, defign'd for the fame Station; the Command of which will he given to Captain Edward Lee. Captain Thomas Lovell, late Commander of the Prince Frederick Packet, on the Lifbon Station, is appointed Agent for the Weft-India Packets. A few Days fince died the ReY. Mr. Hind, Fellow of Emanuel College, Cambridge. Yefterday was married at Weftminfter Abby Thomas Moore, Efq; of Richmond in Surry, an eminent Counfellor at Law, to Mrs. Elizabeth Tonge, Widow of the late Dr. Tonge, an eminent Phyflcian of that Place, an agreeable Lady, with a large Fortune. Yefterday Mr. John Godfrey was chofe Parifh-Clerk of St. James's, Clerkenwell. Laft Saturday died at Sandwich in Kent, Mr. Sefworth, one of the Landwaiters of that Port, a Place for which great Intereft is making. . *� The following Piece of Fraud may ferve as a Caution to the Publick. One Day laft Week a Perfon well-dreis'd came to a Brewer in Radcliff Highway, and to!d him that he had taken the White Swan Alehoufe in Eaft-Smithfield, and defired he might ferve him with Pale-Ale ; on which he contracted for feveral Hogfheads for ready Money, and pffer'd in Payment a Draught on a confiderabie Merchant, which the Brewer readily took, and gave the Remainder of the Note in Money, which was 12I. 10 s. Sometime afterwards the Brewer fent the Beer, but on Enquiry no fuch Perfon had taken the Houfe, nor had the Merchant any Knowledge of the Bill. Yefterday '1 obias Burn was committed to Newgate by Mr. Alderman Winterbottom, for felonioufly ftealing two large Parcels of Sugar from out of a Warehoufe at Bear-Key. As was likcvyife William Barton to the fame Place, by Sir Edward Bellamy, for felonioufly ftealing a large Quantity of Cocoa from Bear-Key. SIR, - My Time at the Royal-Exchange being near expisii,, it -j - ^ v *-� o----- - r - you will oblige me by giving this a Place in your Paper, to aflure the Curious, &c. the Machines of the Antients, and the other Pieces of Art, which hitherto have given the greateft Satisfaction, both to the Ingenious and Learned, will be continued only a few Days longer, this being pafttively the laft Week they will be exhibited to the PuDlick. I am yours, The Proprietor. To the A U THO R, �V. Confiderationsupbn Recruiting the King's Army. .SIR. *VTO general Plan having been fettled, unhappy Diffi-J culties and Delays have occurred in the Application of the liberal Subfcriptions made in feveral Parts of the Kingdom.  - Raifing the Militia; in particular Counties; is fo afdefs, fo expenfive; and befides, from the Want of Arms and Accoutrements, and for other Reafons; is become fo impracticably that the very Mention of the Scheme is now underftood on all Hands to mean-^--Nothing at all. Particular local force may preferve local Tranquillity, yet will not fupprefs the Rebellion itfelf, or defeat a Foreign Invafion ; but, upon a Misfortune, may furnifh Arms and Matter of Triumph to the Enemy. In the prefent, as in all former Wars, the Troops, greatly incomplete after a Campaign, want many thoufands to make up their Complements. The ufual Time for compleating thefe Troops is the Spring-, before they take the Field. The only Fund for this Purpofe is the Non-effective Money, i.e. the Pay of fuch common Soldiers as die naturally, or in Battle, in each Company, during the Summer Campaign. By the prefent deteftable Rebellion, Two Campaigns, one abroad and one at home, are become unavoidably ne-ceffary in one Year. To obtain an immediate, neceffary Supply of Soldiers, and compleat the Forces for this unexpected Winter Campaign, Men are ordered forthwith to be enlifted for Six Months only, and if the Rebellion be extinguifhed are then to be difcharged. By this early Enliflment for a Winter-Campaign, the Captains have not half the ufual Fund for recruiting; the whole of which is always infufficient in Time of Service. Had the Captains, who are alone concerned in the lifting, fuffered no Diftrefs abroad in the Summer, it would ftiil have been impoffible that a double Levy of Soldiers fhould have been made by them, with lefs than half the ufual Fund ; when too, from Publick Neceffity, the Price of Men is greatly advanced ; and with their diminifhed Stock, the Officers will be obliged to recruit fix Months hence. In Truth, the Captains have not the Money ; they cannot raifeit; nor I fuppofe will thofe, who ftudy Objections againft the moft ufeful Scheme, fupply thefe Wants and take a precarious Security : And in a Parliamentary W ay the Example might poffibly prove burdenfbme; and the Execution would certainly be tedious ; and the- Cbnfe-quences of Delay molt fatal. A hirer and more fpeedy Method has been happily pur-f -ed 5 many publick Subfcriptions have been v\ ifely and cheerfully entered into, in order to fupply this Defect; and by this means, the unfortunate Expences of Enliiling for the fecond Campaign are borne by voluntary Conuiba-tions. In this Method of Subfcription Men are raifed in much greater Numbers ; and the Troops recruited with an unprecedented Expedit'on ; the Subscribers have been folli-citoufly diligent to find Men, and extremely careful that thofe Men fhould be Proteftants. In fact, ten Times more Men have been engaged in the Service of their Country by this Method, in tniee Weeks inafmgle Parifh, than all the Regiments of Guards could pick up in three Months in the feveral adjacent Counties. But after all, were it poffiblej which is really not the Cafe, that any fmall Advantage could arife to the Captains, who, in this hard Seafon of the Year, are now to undergo a fecond Campaign (and it is impoilible the Advantages fhould go higher than to a Captain) what generous rleart would grudge them this poor Advantage, who confiders the Hardihips and the great LofTes they have generally fuftained, in the late bloody and expenfive Campaign, the chargeable Burden of Garriage-Horfes, in many Cafes the total Lofs of Baggage at Bruges, Ghent, &c. and feveral other Accidents and heavy Expences; who can grudge this little Advantage, if there by any, to Gentlemen that have venturedj and now again muft venture, their ^jyes for our Safety and Prefervation ? , "^wTaTEngliihman can in Prudence repine at foTpeedy, fo cheap, fo certain and effectual a Defence to Ourfelves, which will in the fhorteft Space, bring into the Field the greateft andfureft Strength againft a rapacicu; Enemy, advancing to our Deftruction.
