Thar each 'vicr, that'two French Eatl-Indiamen ; and a rich South- * Sea.Ship, Were fafiiy arrived at CapeBreton; and by Letters found on board, four more French Indiamen were daily expected there-From hence may be fend the Ad- vantage of this invaluable Acqurfition.

On Alonday laft Capt.

The general Reports from Scotland are flail, that the Rebels continue yet near Edinburgh in hopes of being j inedby fome more Banditti. We hear, that one Mr. James Matpbarfon, who hath been fome Time with the Pretender, and hath left him fmce the Battle of Preflon, arrived in London the Beginning of this Week. Yefterday Morning it was reported that Admiral Martin -had fallen in witn a French Fleet of"Merchantmen, ""and had taken and deftrov'd feveralof tfiem ; but it appears to be without Foundation. - 'Itwasalfo reported, that an Exprefe was arrived from Holland, with an Account of a Battle-between the King of Pruffia and the Queen of Hungary, to the Difadvantage of the latter.-r-But as no Mail is come, and confequently no Boat arrived, we hope it is not true. Yefterday the Remainder of the Money, taken by the Prince Frederick and Duke Privateers, was carried thro' the City to the Tower, in 23 Waggons,�fcGrted by a Party of Foot, and the Officers and feveral Sailors tbdongmg to the Duke Privateer ; the Prince Frederick's Men having guarded the Waggons the Day before. On Tue^ay lalt was haul'd out of Mr. Carter's Dock at Limehoufe, the Chefterfield Privateer, of 40 Guns, formerly the Diamond Man of War, -and purchafed by feveral of the Nobility and Gentry of Jreland.

We. are now in high Spii-its, having received the News of the Rebels marching again for Ediaborgh j however, we have lately-got feveral mere Cannon, and are^tflur'a that iojOoo Troops will foon arrive herefrom the South j fa that we hope to give a good Account of the Rebels if they come to^pay us a Vifit. Lord Mark Kerr and Col. Frazier are arrived here. On-Weauefiday laft Part of the Militia* from the- County of Northumberland came to Town, viz. about 400 Horfe, and above 300 Foot well arm'd, and headed by many fine Gentlemen, who arexletermin'd to defend his Majefly, his Government, and the Religion and Liberty of this Kingdom, againft all Invaders. Laft Thurfday Morning, upon Advice that three Gentlemen and four Servants were arrived at Mr. Murclew^s Houfe at Winlaton, a Party of 30 Soldiers and one Officer, accompanied by George Bowes, fifq; and 12 of his Men, went thither and feiz'd them ; upon which the Gentlemen, kc. delivered up their Arms, and faid, chey came that way for Privatenefs in their Road to London from the North : The Gentlemen, Sec. were carried to Grbfide. 'Tis faid one of the Gentlemen is nam'd Dundas. This Week Gaven Robinfon, Alexander Napier* "Samuel Proclor, and John Hixon, were committed to jail on Sufpi-cion-.of itreafonable Practices. As many Gentlemen have deferred purchafmg Mr. Guthrie's. Hiftory of England 'till a Volume mould be corn-pleated ; we hear, the firft Volume of the fame-will be finifhed in about a Fortnight. Chatham, Oft. 1, 174^. MJNUTES of the;Gourt-Martial, on Board the London, Continued. * The iCourt affembled in the Morning, at the ufua'l ' Tiipewhen Cape Burrifh was brought into Court, and * caU'd Wknefles in-his^fence. * The four Lieutenants of the Dorfetfhire, who had them- * felves been tried, were examined in his Behalf, with. ' four Perforjs more, belonging to the Dorfetfhire ; who * feem all to agree in one Evidence, point-black contiary * to the Evidence that had been before given, in behalf of �' the Crown. * It is fuppofed that this Trial will be finifh'd on * Thurfday next.' Admiral Leltock does not go abroad at Chatham, probably to avoid the fhqeking bad Behaviour of the Lower Clafs of People, who take all Opportunities to infult any one they think belongs to him ; and the other Day one of Lord Darnly's Footman being miftaken for his, they beat him in a very cruel manner. To the Author of the General Advertiser. S I /?, AL L Men that are Well-Wifhers to his Majefty, and this mofl Happy Eftablifhment, fhould turn their 'i noughts, more efpecially at this dangerous Time, for the Gocd of their King and Country ; therefore, with humble Submiffion, I beg leave to give fome Hints, which, tho* imperfecV may be the Means of having our Militia upon a much better tooting than they are at prefent. The Pains that are now taken in Exercifing our Militia, feem to me rather a Difadvantage than otherwife. I think theGommon Soldiers cohfift chiefly of Journeymen, Apprentices, Porters, Coblers, and I am afraid, fometimes, much worfe, idle and .difaffefted Perfons ; For who elfe would ridicule the Oath, which is Sacred.

Would it not be a terrible Thing, after all the Trouble the Officers have been at, in exercrfing them, and the Charge the Citizens have been at in deputing them (for fome have Five Shillings, ormore, a Day, for therf March) were the Drums to beat to Arms, and we fhould not have Four of our Soldiers out
