On the Pa^er, (which was very wet) could ( nly be read, call on the Way at Port/mouth, Can/ord, Lulvwrth, Weymouth, Exeter and Plymouth. * Th's Letter was found by a Dairy-man, who carried it to the Mayor of Pool, and made Oath of picking it up; the Mayor immediately fent it to the Lord bhaftfbury, Lord Lieutenant of the County, who difpatch'd. an Ex-prefs to London, and another to Plymouth ; arid an Order to the Sheriff, who went to the Caftle near Lulworth, Mr. Weld's Country Seat? to fearch for Arm�, Sec. but found none.-Yefteraay came through*"this Town, and proceeded for Lulworth, a Colonel and Captain of the Guards a King's Meffenger, and one from the Duke of Newcaille, with three private Men, who went to Mr. Weld's, and feiz'd him, and have fince carried him to London. � There is one Sir John W-bb, now in France, who is fuppos'd to be meant by S. J. W. Extra3 cf a Letter from Prefton, Oil. c;. 1 I received your's of the 28th ult. which I could not anfwer by that Day's Poll, being at that Time appointed Captain of a Guard confiding of 100 Men of our Town's People, and who are relieved every 24 Hours, by an equal Number of the fame, in Order to preferve Regularity and good Order amongtt ourfelves, to prevent Arms or whatever may be prejudicial to us, from being carried Strangers or others, that may pafs or repafs, to or from this Place! � There never was a greater Harmony, or ftritter Union amongft Proteitants of all Denominations, of whatever Sect or 1'arty, jhan at prerent fubfiits, and (hews it-felf confpicuous even in Lancafhire, (as I doubt not but it does all over England) who are all ready and determined to venture their Lives and Fortunes in Defence of our So/ereign King George, our Country, Religion, Laws, and Liberties. � This is not to be underltood as Words only without Intentions,, our Actions will make it appear that our Hearts correfpond with our Tongues ; and in a grand Meetmg^held-here 4ately;*-of the Earl of Derby, our Lord Lieutenant, and all the principal Gentlemen of the County, we all unanimoufly fet our Hands to what I have before recited, and alio open'd and fill'd up a voluntary Subfcriprion for a great many thoufand Pounds; for raifing a Body of Troops for his Majefty's Service, and whicn is now actually raifing, and I doubt not will be com pleated foon, and commanded by Officers of Experience, who underftand Difcipline: And this exclufive of the Militia.' Yefterday the Mafler of the Saracen's Head Tnn was examin'd before the Duke of Newcalile, the Ea;I of Har-'Tingtwij and'fwerarothers of his Majetty^s^Pwvy Council, in relation to the Chefts of Cirl ffes, &c found in the faid Inn ; when after an Examination of feveral Hours, he was order'd into the Cuftody of a Meffenger; and the Arms were ordered to be fent to the Tower, under a ftrong Guard. Yefterday a Party of the Guards,with an Officer, fearch'd feveral Inns in and about London, on Sufpicion of Arms being conceal'd, for the Service of the Pretender, and bis Adherents. We are allured, there are Letters in Confirmation of our former Accounts, that there is no feeming Intentions of an Imbarkation by the French, either at Oltend, Dunkirk, Calais, or Boloign. We hear that there being fome Cjmfe for Sufpicion that ^K^artieuiar Perfon, (or Perfoos^ is oh bbafd the Spanifh .Ship, brought into Briftol by Captain Conner, in, the Tryal Privateer, a Party of Horfe ii ordered to bring ap the whole Crew of the faid Ship. It is reported that one of the Spanilh Prifoners at Briftol has acknowledged that there was another Ship loading with , Arms at Corunna, two more in another Port, and that four Spanifh Men of War failed with them, who had Forces with them ; but were all feparated in a Storm. We hear Yefterday arrived an Exprefs from Edinburgh, of the 6th Current, which brought the agreeable News of the Rebels permitting the City of Edinburgh to furnifh the Caftle with Provisions, and it was reported the Rebels -were to march the 7th or 8th towards England. The Drake, Weltcombe, from Chichefter to Dublin is taken by a French Privateer, and carried into Morlaix. The Anne and Mary, Jones, from Carolina to London, is alfo taken, and carried into Morlaix. His Majefty's Ship the Lynn, is arrived, in the Downs, from Cork; fhe failed from thence the 4th Inftant, with 58 Sail of Merchant Ships under her Convoy;- but parted with them, on the 5th, in a very hard Gale of Northerly Wind. On Wednefday laft the Batavia, Invernefs, and Flufh-ing (three Dutch Eaft-India Ships) arrived off Dover. " -> Laft Night died, at his Lodgings in the Borough of Southwark, Mr. William Lyme, an eminent Atterney, and Under-Sheriff for the County of Hampfhire. Chatham, 03. 9, 1745. Court-Martial, on Board the London. ' TN Purfuance of an Order from the Lords of the Ad-' \_ miralty, dated the nth cf September, the Court  have proceeded to enquire into the Conduct of Captain � George Burrifh, Commander of his Majefty's .Ship the ' Dorfetfhire, on the 11 th of February, 1743, intheEn-' g'gement between his Majefty's Fleet and the Combined ' J'leet of France and Spain, and he was tried for the � farre, upon a Charge exhibited againft him,.on Behalf cf the Crown ; and the Court having ilnctly examined into the Mat:er, and having heard all the Witneffes as well on Behalf of the Crown, as of the faid George Burrifh, and having duely cor.fidered thereof, it appeared to the Court, that when the Dorfetfhire firft brought to (he was not in a Line with the Admiral, but after the Admiral hauPd oft", the Dorfetfhire was in a Line, or to Leeward of the Admiral. - That the Dorfetfhire, after the Marlborough's Matfs were gone, lay inactive for half an Hour, aud that fhe had not then received Damage to make her lying inactive neceffary. That when Captain Burrifh received a Meffage from the Admiral to bear down, and affift the Marlborough, he bore down, but foon after he haul'd up again for a little Time, upon a Miftake that he had no Powder filfd. But that being cleared up he foon bore away, and affifted the Marborough by engaging the Real till fhe bore away.- That fhe had no Orders to cover the Firefhip by Signal or otherwife he is not chargeable with the Lofs of that Ship; that a Bar-ftiot came on board the Dorfetfhire in the firft Part of the Engagement, and fhe did not afterwards haul off, the Dorfetfhire muft have been within extreme Point-blank during the greater! Part of the Engagement ; that by Realbn of his laying inactive as above, and that he was not in a Line with the Admiral when he firft brought too, he is Guilty of Part of the Charge exhibited againft him, as he did not do his utmoft to burn, fink or deltroy the Enemy ; nor give the proper -Affiftance to the Marlborough, till after the Meffage which he received from the Admiral, and that he is Guilty of a Breach of the Twelfth and Thirteenth Articles of the Fighting Instructions, contain'd in an Act of Parliament made in the 13th Year of the Reign of King Charles II. and therefore the Court do adjudge him, the faid Capt. Burrifh, to be cafhier'd, and forever rendered incapable of being an Officer of his Majefty's Navy, and it is ordered that the Marfhal do difcharge the faid Capt. Burrifh out of his Cuftody.' WHEREAS a moft wicked and unnatural RebellionT is actually begun and carried on by many traiterous Perlons in Favour of a Popifh Pretender, fupported by the inveterate Enemies of our Country, in order to dethrone our moft gracious Sovereign King GEORGE, to fubvert and deftroy our prefent moft happy Conftitution in Church and State, and to introduce and eftablifh Popery and Arbitrary Power. We therefore the Lord-Mayor, Aldermen, Common-Council-men, Citizens, Merchants, Traders and other Inhabitants of the ancient and loyal City of London, whofe Names are hereunto fubferibed, being filled with a juft De-teftation and Abhorrence of this daring and execrable Attempt, and hoping to encourage and confirm others, by our Example, in the warmeft and moft hearty Oppofition thereto, do hereby faithfully engage and promife, that we will to the utmoft of our Power, Hand by and fupport each other in Defence of our prefent happy Conftitution, of his moft facred Majefty King GEORGE, our only Lawful and Rightful Sovereign, and of the Proteftant Succefiion as by Law eftablifhed in his Royal Family, againft the faid Pretender and all his Adherents and Abettors. Dated at Guildhall, London, the 4th of October, 1745.

High Water this Day at London-Bridge at 2 Minutes after 12. o O o �1 To the Author of the General Aovsrtisjbr* SIR, . ' IF you have no Dutch Mails arrived I defire yon would inferr the following Copy of Verfes, which are pathetic,-and were written by the late Earl of Rochefier, who had* both read and feen all the Fopperies and Idolatries of th* Church of Rome as they are practifed abroad. I. If Rome can pardon Sins as Romans hold, And if thofe Pardons can be bought and fold. It were no Sin f adore and worfhip Gold. II. If they can purchafe Pardons with a Sum For Sins they may commit in Time to come And for Sins paft, 'tis very well for Rome. III. At this Rate, they are happieft that have moft, They'll purchafe their own proper Coft j Alafs, the Poor ! All that are fo are loft. IV. Whence came this Knack, or when did it begin ? What Author have they, or who brought it in! Did Chrift e'er keep a Cuftom houfe for Sin I V. Some fwbtle Devil without more ado, Did certainly this fly Invention brew, To gull them of their Souls and Money too. But Pardons and Purgatories fill the Pope's Coffers, and make all their Priefts fat: They were good Inventions for the Clergy; but their Proof of Purgatory mult be very trifling, and not able to convince any Man of Senfe, did they not ftrengthen it, or rather hinder the Confutation of it, by forbidding the Laity to read the Scriptures : For if they were allowed that Liberty, the People would foon be of the Author's Opinion who wrote thf following Verfes, which were fixed on King James II.'s Chapel Door, on Eafter-Day, 1687, vi,. When God Almighty had his Palace fram'd, That glorious fhining Place he Heaven nam'd ; And when the firft rebellious Angels fell, He doom'd them to a certain Place call'd Hell. Here's Heaven and Hell confirmed by Sacred Story j But yet I ne'er could re;id of Purgatory. That cleanfmg Place which of late Years is found, For finning iouls to fLx in till they're found. The Priefts form'd that for the good Roman Race, Our Maker never thought of fucha Place. Oh ! Rome, we own thee for a lcarn'd wife Nation, To add a Place wanting in God's Crea.ien.
