AfUB-miSfighfltis Maje8y;s Sloop the Squirrel ; and this Morning to the Weltward. Remain in the Downs the Royal George Admiral Vernon, and the reft of the Men of War, and Outward-bound, as in my laft.

Extra3 of a Letter from Dumfeis, dated Oil. 4-' I wo Gentlemen of this Town are arrived from Edinburgh, who inform us that the Pretender haspublifhed an Advercifemeoc in the Paper, and likewife publickly polled up in the Streets, that he is reiolved there (hall be no Communication between the Caftle and the City, therefore whatever Perfons fh;ill be found fupplying them with Provifions, or taking any Thing into the Callle, fhall be immediately carried to the Piace oLE^cution and hang'd. - 1 he Highlanders are conftantly employed in making Trenches on the North Side of the Cattle-Hill, and have actually drained the Refervoir of Water that was there, in Hopes, if tne Draw-well in the Cattle fhould be exhauited, the Garrifon might be in great Di(-trefs for it. The Governor wa, exafperat.d, that for two Days part, the Cannon are fired at any-of the Highland-men who come wicnin Reach of the Callle, by which fome of the Houfes have fuffe-'ed. A Bomb fell into Haddo's Hole Church, whicli mortally wounded tv\o or three of the Inhabitants, and killed fome of the Rebels. A Party of them are gone into the Weii Church, which will be battered down upon them, if they do not foon remove. The Men are not quite in fo good Spirits as heretofore, and a few of them have lelerted ; tho' the Rebel Army give out, that they fhall immediately have a Reinforcement from the Highlands of 4000 Men. Wiih thefe they may be computed at 12,000. We have alfo the fMowing Advices from Edinburgh, ' The Officers who were taken Prifoners are fent to Perth, and its feared will be cruelly ufed. They made the private Men fail two Days, in order to force them to inlitt, which many of them did, and afterwards deferted. The reft are fent to the Blair of Athole. And altho' the Inhabitants were civilly treated and readily paid for every Thing at the Rebels firft Coming into the Town ; yet after Victory, their Behaviour was changed into that of Common Robbers, paying no Distinction to Friends or Enemies. They pillaged Colonel Gardner's Houfe, and carried away the whole Furniture, loading 30 Horfes with Booty next Day far the North. From \;ufTd-burgh to Edinburgh they have plundered every Houle they thought proper; fo that Pe pie a e afraid of travelling nigh them. Edinburgh by way of Contribution has fuppl ied them with 1000 Tents, 2000 Targets, 6000 Pans for carrying Water, and 6000, Pair of Shoes. They have fent circular Letters to all the Provofts, Collectors of Cefs and Revenues, of every Royal Burgh in Scotland, ordering them to come immediately and fettle their Contributions, under Pain of Rebellion. The Letters to the Collectors require them to attend with their Books and all the Ca'h in their Hands, under Pain of Hi^h-Treafon and Military Execution againft their Per-fons and Etlates. Our Collectors and Comptroller are retired into England. All Payments, Trade and Commerce are ilopp'd. General Guelt gave publick Notice 10 tne Inhabitant* on the 30th palt, to convey them-itlves and their Effects out of the City, for that ina few Hours he fhculd fire upon the Town, in order to open a Communication between the City and the Cattle, which the Highland Guards obftrutted. The Magittrates fent Deputies to the Pretender to befeech him to remove thofe Guards ; but he fent them a very extraordinary Anfvver in the utmoft Form, part of which was as fol-fows,-/ jhall be heurtxh ferry for any Mi/chief that may befall the City, and jhall make it my peculiar Care to indemnify you in the moft ample Manner. In the mean Tim', 1 Jhall make full Reprifzls upon the Efates of thofe who are now in the Caftle, &c. And at the Solli-ciution of other Deputies to General Gueft, he allowed the City fix Days, to have an Exprefs anfwered from London, which expires on Sunday next, when we fear the Innocent that are left in Edinburgh will fufL-r with the Guilty ; thof molt of the well-affected of that City have retired.' ' One Thing more I fhall add, and that is, that the Highlanders are plotting keenly for the Cattle, and had almoit got it by Treachery laft Week, for one of the Centinels had undertaken 10 betray it, but was luckily feized with bis Ropes, Letters of Inltruction, Sec. about him, hnce which, none but Men-of Charr&er are polled within the Drawbridge. We hear that a Packet of Letters has been found by Accident near Pool in Dorietfhire, which has difcovered an extraordinary Scene of intended Villainy, which Packet te-ing delivered to the Lord Shaftfbury, was by him fent to London ; in Confequence of which fome Perfons in that 1 an of the Country have been feized, and are bringing to 1 own under a itrong Guard.

The Spanifh Captain fays he was to go to a certain Latitude, and wait there a Month 'till joined by another Ship, by whom he was to receive Orders; and fo they all fay. 'Tis hop'd by fair or foul Means thsy will be compell'd to tell the Truth. There is Seven Chefts of Money landed, amounting to 24000 Dollars in Gold and Silver, among theGold a Number of Pittoles, lapp'd up fmgly in Paper:, fuppos'd to be for fuch as would inlift.

Adams, very leaky, from a Cruize, having flruck on a hidden Rock near the Ifle of Mull on the Coaft of Scotland, by which fhe loft her Cut-Water, and was fore'd up this Channel by bad Weather.' Extract of a Letter from Norwich, 08. 7. ' We hear from Bury, that the Deputy Lieutenant had taken away the Coach and Saddle Horfes, of a Popifh Lord ; and at the fame Time defir'd to know where hii Lordfhip would have them kept till the Troubles were over ; but he fent word they might do what they pleafed with them, and fet out directly for London.-Hb Grace the Duke of Grafton, our Lord Lieutenant, has appointed Monday next for a Meeting of jhe Nobility, Gentry and Clergy of Suffolk, at Stowmarket, in order to concert � Meafures for the Defence of our happy Conttitution.- � All about Bury continue very quiet; Frampton's Regi-' giment quarter'd there, have Orders to march, and its ' laid for Dover.
