Yefterday there was a Meeting of the Court of Lieutenancy at Guildhall, in order to confider of a Scheme to make the Train'd Bands of this City more effectually fer-viceable.

Yefterday came Advice, that the Eagle, Capt. Carre, from St. Maloes, very richly laden with Bale Goods, for Cadiz, is taken by the Tygris Privateer, Capt.

Yefterday died, at his Houfe in Woodftreet, Mr. Barrow, an eminent Grocer, a Perfon of good Fortune, and efteem'd by all that knew him. Yefterday Nicholas Bide, a Lad belonging to the Duke Privareer, (oneofthofe who attended the Waggons to the Tower) was fliot thro' the Thigh, by a Man's accidentally . difcharging a Piftol, from one of the faid Waggons ; he was carrieddireftly to the London Infirtnary,whcre all poffi-ble Care is taken. of him. The Swifs Soldier who was run thro* the Body by a Gentleman at Mile-End, for attacking him and cutting him in two or three Place*, died on Wednefday Night at the London Infirmary. An Account greatly heightened and exaggerated inFavour of the Rebels, and which could be of no Ufe to the Pub-lick, but muft tend to fpirit up Sedition, and raife Terror in the Minds of weak People, having been published from the Caledonian Mercury in fome of Yefterday's Papers, it is a great Pleafure to us, that we are enabled to give from Newcaftle the following impartial Relation of their late Progrefs, which with the utmoft Care and Indutlry has been procured from the moft knowing and authentick Hands, viz. Ne Sigh: of the Inhabitants of the City ; which put them into E3 no fmall Confufion, imagining the Rebels were at their Heels with their whole Force, and that the Dragoons had �-t entirely deferted them. However, the Volunteers, tec. continued under Arms, waiting Orders to take their refpec-tive Stations, which they were refolved to defend to the laft. At this Time feveral Perfons p'refented a Petition to the Provoft, defiring a Meeting of the Inhabitants might be called? to confider whether.they fhould hold out, or deliver up theCity. The Fire Bell was accordingly rung, which the Perfons under Arms took as a Signal for bringing them to the Place of Rendezvous, and immediately drew up, and headed by their Officers. The Meeting of the Inhabitants in the New Kirk lile was filled immediately with Perfons who had been ftrolling thro' the Street, many of them diT-affe&ed to the prefent Government. In this Meeting a Letter from the Chevalier was prefented, intimating his Intention to enter the City j but the Reader was foon interrupted, and the Queftion put, Whether the Town was or was not tenable? iome affirming, that the Dragoons had let them, and ethers, that it was falfe, and that they were ready to defend the City to the laft, if required. In the mean time the Secretary at War acquainted them, that he had an Order from the General to defire the two Regiments of Dragoons to enter the City, if the Inhabitants de- >-+ fired it. This occafion/ed fome warm Debates, when a ~^ Gentleman who had been prefent at a Council of War fome Days before, afferted, that the general Opinion of the |_j Officers wa% that the City was not tenable, and that q bringing the Dragoons into it, would be cooping them up h3 to their Deftruction. Immediately the Vote was put, Re- �D ceive the Dragoons or noi? when it paffed in the Negative, and they joined General Cope. No Orders being given , " what Part the Volunteers fliould aft, they deliver'd their Arms into the Caftle ; the Governor of which fent for the Cannon on the Walls and Gates, to be brought to the Caftle, or nailed up; but for want of Orders from fome Perfon in Town, they could not -be carried away, but fell into the Rebels Hand, Part of whom enter'd the Town next Morning, by the Netherbow Port, when open'd to let in a Coach. The Remainder took Poffcffion about Noon that Day,where they continued 'till Thurfday, when, hearing-of Sir John's Approach to attack them.and the Garrifon having thrown fome Granadocs into the Town, to force them out, they mych'd to Falfide Hill, in View of the Camp, on the ' Sea-fide, near Prefton Pans, where our Army lay all Night under Arms In the Morning, about Five, the Highlanders marched up to our Army in Battle-Array-, and began, their Attack on the Right Wing, in which Gardner's Dragoons were placed, who broke upon receiving the firft Fire of the Rebels, and went off. Their Officers perfuaded them to rally, but juft as they were returning alongfide of Lord Grange's Park-dyke, an Ambufcade of Rebels gave them a fecond Fire ; which made them run off altogether, notwithftand-ing the molt earneft Entreaties of their Officers. Hamilton's Dragoons went off immediately alfo, without firing a Shot ; and the Foot, furpriaed at the Flight of the Dra- j-^ goons (on whofe.Service they placed fuch great Confidence) and it being very dark, their Bayonets not fixed, and a great ^ Number of new-raifed Men amongft them, they fired too (jy foon ; on which the Highlanders ruftied upon them, Swond p** in Hand, with great Fury furrounded them, killed about < 150 Men, and made about 1000 Prifoners. The High-' �3J landers of Lowdon's Regiment, placed with Gen. Cope's'*^? Baggage, and as a Body of Referve, were fallen upon next,' who behaved very well, gave the Rebels a fmart Fire, and' killed feveral of them ; but being overpower'd by Numbers, they were obliged to furrender Prifoners. Our Army confiiled only o� 2800 Men, and the Rebels were reckoned at 6ooo. A great Number of Volunteers from Edinburgh and the Country round it, offered to fight the Rebels ; but their Affiftance was refufed, for fear of confufing his Men. The Rebels had about 100 Men killed, and double that Number wounded. ADVERTISEMENTS arc taken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's Coff*e-House, in Lombard-Street, No Wooden Shoes. No Arbitrary Power, ;
