Letter from Rome, Oclober z, N.S. ^ f When the News of the Election firft came to Rome, ctf ' the People were fo overjoy'd at it, that in every Street C/5 ' you met with Proceffions in Honour of the Emperor. � Altho' there were Only ChHdren concerned, and that even 0 ' thofe Children behaved with the atmoft Decency with 2 ' Regard to the oppofite Party, the Spaniards are fo piqued * at luch unfeigned Teftimony of Joy, that they have been ' guilty of one" of themoft barbarous Maffacres ever heard * of; Sunday laft their Bravo's killed and wounded 15 lit-' tie Children from 8 to 14 Years of Age, for crying * God blefs the Emperor, and that under the Emperor's * own Palace, and in Sight of his own Minifter. This * was told the Pope as a Joke, and the Prelate who related ' it to him, added, That he had died with laughing, had he * fees the little Boys tumble down the Hill Head over HeelL 4 Indeed the Manner in which the Pope liftned to him, ' thoroughly juftifies the Opinion he had of his Holinefs's 4 Humanity. A Captain in the Emperor's Service has 4 had his Cockade pulled out of his Hat for daring to walk � with it in the Piazza de Spagna, near the Spanifh Am- * baffador's Palace j and feveral other Perfons have been , * murder'd and wounded in palling quietly over the fame X 4 Square, under Pretence of being attached to the Auftrian V ' Intereft. In fliort, they carry their Infolence to fuch a 4 Pitch, that 'tis dangerous for.any one lefs wicked than P 4 themfelves, to appear in the Neighbourhood t and the " 4 Government inftead of punifhing the Authors of fuch 0 4 Crueltie?, endeavour to fcreen them.. The People, en-�j 4 raged at fuch Infults, have been to Cardinal Alexander * Albani, Proteftor of Hungary and Sardinia, to beg his 4 Afliftance, but inftead of irritating him, as the Govern-' ment and his other Enemies would fuggeft, he ftrives to ' nppeafe them, nay too much as fome think. All the ' Englifh now here (I mean who deferve that Name) be-' fide; being branded with the Title of Hereticks, &c. have 4 their Doors conftantly befet with Spanilh Spies and Bra-4 vo's. Strange Policy ! to endeavour to perfuade us into ' an Approbation of a Tyrannical Government, by fhew-4 ing the Odioufnefs of it. Tho' I have not bad Opinion * eno-igh of my Countrymen to believe the News we are 4 continually iniulted with here (the Succels the Pretender's * ^on meets with in Scotland) I muft however beg you to 1 get this publifhed, that the Englifh may have a jufi Idea 4 of" the Education the young Gentleman has had, and 4 judge from thence how greatly Hereditary-Right Princi-4 pies mull have been improved in fuch a School, and un- * der fuch Matters.' Letter from Bury, dated OS}. 16. ' On Monday lad there was a Meeting at Stowmarket, 4 at the Greyhound, which not being near large enough ' to hold the Nobiemen and Gentlemen, they adjourn'd to ' the Church ; where his Grace the Duke of Grafton, our 4 Lord Lieutenant acquainted them with the Occafion of 4 their Meeting ; and the Addrefs and AfTociation were 4 read, and unanimoufly agreed to, arid fign'd by his Grace the Duke of Grafton-, Earl of Rochfbrd, Earl of Dyfart, Lord Vifcount Hereford, Lord Cornwallis, and tlie Lord Hervey; Sir Cordell Firebrace, Bart, and Mr. Affleck, our Knights jo{ the Shire, and by a vaft Number of Gentlemen of the greatell Property in the County, and a very numerous Clergy. About the Subfcription there were fome few Debates: However the general Senfe of this great Meeting, was to fubferibe, and leave the whole to his Grace the Lord Lieutenant, who they were afTur'd would not call for the Money, unlefs there was Occafion j and if there was, they did not doubt of his Graced applying it for the belt Advantage : His Grate fubfcribM 1000 1. and moll of the Lords coo 1, many of the Gentlemen yx>, zoo, and 100 1. Mr. Serjeant Prime of our Town fublcrib'd 100 Guineas; feveral of the Clergy 50, zo, and 10 Leach. The whole Subfcription at Stowmarket amounted to near 11000 1. but as its to be carried to every Msrket Town, its jeckon'd it Will be confide-rably encreasM Thomas Dilcipline, Efq; one dfour Aldermen, has received a Letter by the Pott, acquainting U 0 G u u * him that there are 12 Popiih Priefts in this Town, and ' an Agent for the Pretender ; bufcas there is no Name to * it, nor any body nanVd in it, 6i de/crib'd, hp arid the ' other Magi ftratej can only be5 very vigilant and watchful ' over feveral People; that niay-br wrpfic"ted of harbouring ' them : Tho' thanks be to God, the Papilla here'and ' in Norfolk are at;p�efent very qqiet; and indeed, if they ' have any Gratitude or Honour they ought to be fo, if ' they confider, with whal Lenity they have been treated ' for many Years.'

We have an Account from Whitby, that the Inhabitants of that Place, (which are chiefly Matters of Ships) having met by Appointment, unanimoufly fubferibed ioool. for the Support of his Majefty^ arid the prefeht Eftablifh-ment; which Mbhey was tranfmitted to the Lord Lieutenant of the County ; with an Affuranfce, that they would be ready to fubferibe any larger Sum, that they were able, if it was found neceflary. Yefterday the Men who had entered into the Troop of his Grace the Duke of Bedford, were muiler'd at Bedford-houfe in Bloornibury-fquare, when Part of the faid Regiment march'd out of Town for their Quarters at Huntingdon. The Seafon of the Year proving too wet and cold for ths~ Encampment of the Guards in Hyde-Park, we hear, that proper Officers have cdHtradledwith the Proprietors of Ra-nelagh-Houfe for Quarters for 4000 Men, and that they are to enter thofe Quarters oh Monday next, after having been review'd that Morning by his Majelty. They write from York that two Popifh Priefts were taken up there a few Days ago, who were plentifuDy pro- ^ vided with Agnas Deis, Pardons, and other Trumpery of the Church of Rome.

On Tuefday laft was married at Ilford in Eflex, Mr. Springwood, a weal thy Canterbury Faftor, to Mifs May-nard, Daughter of Mr. Mayhard, an eminent COal Merchant in Southwark, an agreeable young Lady, with a confiderablc Fortune. Laft Saturday died at his Houfe near Rye in SufTex, Charles May, Efq; in the 78th Year of his Age, who had been in the Commiffion of the Peace 40 Years.

S IR, 2 IThink our Countrymen cannot be enough cautioned O with refpeft to two Articles; The one is, not to give Credit to every Report now fo induftriouily fpfeading ^ abroad. ^ The .other, not to be fway'd by the many dange-reus Infinuations erhploy'd by the fecret Enemies to our Government and Peace.  With regard to the Firft Point. As Multitudes of the * Spies and Emiffaries in Quetlion have been drove out of Coffee-houfes, upon their being fharply cenfur'd for relating falfe Advices; the way of many of thefe Wretches is now, to go talking, by Pairs, along the Streets 3 and there, upon Pretence of telling each other News, publifh the falfeft Particulars, loud enough to be eatch'd by PaJTers. by. 1 o give an Iriflance. I Yefterday heard one (I have fome Knowledge of the Wretch) ,tell another, as they were walking thro' the Strand; That three Ships, loaded with Arms and Ammunition, for the Ufe of the Rebels, were arrived fafe in Scotland. An errant Untruth. As to the Second Point, (the being fway'd by dangerous Infinuations); One of them, is: Tq check, with all the Power of their wild Rhetoric, the AfTociations now carrying on with fo glorious a Spirit; by declaring, that all thfc Monies fo collected, will certainly be embezzled.--To fuch unrighteous Demagogues I would make this Reply. , The Rebels, as is but too well known, are now become fo for-' midable in Scotland, that it is high Time for us to oppofe them with all imaginable Vigour. Pyo Arts & Pods is now the Word. Two Things ieerh therefore abfolutfcly nfr-cefTary at thii imporraht J unfture. One (as the excellent Philotatris obfferves) to, ftrehgtheh the main Army as much as poflirile; the Other, to keep up Forces, in every Part of England, fufficient to preverit the Difaffefted from rifing, in cafe' of ah Irivafidri from Abroad, or that the Rebels mould meet with any future Siiccefs j both which Heaven a'vfert! Now how fuch Trbdpscahbe fais'd and fupported without Aflociations, or forriethirig equivalent to them, I cannot compsehend. What fenfible Briton^ what Mail who has the lead Regard to the Welfare of his Country, but would chearfuHy v-run the Hazard of facrificing a few Guineas, at this Cri-^. -fis ; rather than have his all, his Life expofed to the Mercy of a cruel and bigotted Enemy. To be penurious on this Occafion, would be juft sets Wife, as for a Man to keep a clofe Look-out, after tne.Khoek*r df his Door, to prevent its b?ing ftole^s an^ at the feme Time behold, with Indifference, his Hbufe kia&�*iB.
