The Hume, Chilton, from Virginia, in $he Downs. * The Eaton, Seyers, from Leverpool j and the Nancy, Cowley, from Africa, at Jamaica. LONDON. 1-0 V hip's Forecaftle, having among the few narrowly efcap'd. It is not doubted, when his Merit is known, but he will meet with fuitable Encouragement. Laft Week died at his Seat in Dorfetihire, Edward Crof, Efv]; a Gentleman very much advanced in Years, poffeiVd of a plentiful Eftate, w'hofc Freedom in Conversion, and Benevolency of Temper, makes his Death greatly lamented. On Sunday lait died at Portimouth Capt. Reed, Commander of the Lucretia, in the Jamaica Trade j to which Place ihc was bound. Saturday Night a. young Man in a Seafaring Drefs, was found caft on the Shore near the Red Lyon at Rotherhith; in his Pockets were 18 Guineas^ and fome Silver, and by fome Memorandums it appearid his Name was John May. Yefterday John Cooper was committed to Woodftrcet Compter by Sir Kobert Willimet; for feloniouily ftealing a Goole, Value z s. 6 d. from out of the Shop of Mr. George Priefiey of Newgate Maiit r, Poultert r. The Mililaty Maehina of the Anc ents, and the otlj�c Curious Pieces of Art, to be feen at the Royal Exchange, being in a Ihort time to be removed from thence, fuch Gentlemen and Ladies who would not repent mining .the Opportunity of feeing them, are deiired to come between the Hours of I'welve and Three j Attendance being given no other Time of the D-y. The following Piece, befides a Spiric of Loyalty, and Elegance of Style, which it has in common with others of the like Nature tint have been publiihed by t;:e Proteftant Clergy on this Occafion, has one very particular Circum-ftance to recommend it to the Attention of the Pubbck, tint it was refolved, compofed and published at Glafgow, on the 1 ft of October Inttanr, that is, Ten Days after the Defeat of the King's Forcesat Tranent; when the Rebels were become Mailers of Scotland, and had actually railed Contributions in Glafgow, the City where that Rev. Synod was aftembled, who thus had an Opportunity to exprefs their Loyalty and their Courage at once, joining with thefe the moft elevated Sentiments of Chrillian Charity towards our common Enemies, and at the fame Time voted a loyal Addrefs to his Majefty which will be printed in the Gazette. MEMORIAL and ADMONITION of the Reverend Synod of GLASGOW and AIR, met at Glafgow, the \fi of Odober, 174;, to the People within the Bounds of the faid Synod, which is ant of the Jargeji in Scotland. Dearly Beloved, WE being met together in Synod, at a Time when a Rebellion againft the Royal Perfon and Government of our moft gracious and rightful Sovereign King GEORGE, is actnally commene'd, and canied on in Favours of a Popilh Pretender, reckon it our indifpenfible Outy, as Watch-men, to give feafonable and fai hful Warning of the utter Ruin of our holy Religion, and valuable Liberties, are threatned with. )Therefore we, in the firft Place, judge it needful to puc you in mind, that the Pretender, m whofe Favours thi Rebellion hath been commene'd and carried on, is wejl known to be a profefc'd and bigotted Papiil, fupported tty Popifh Powers ; notorious Enemies to "the Liberties of Mankind, Civil and Sacred ; and, fur many Years bygone, hath had his ordinary Reiidence at Rome a Place wheie all Proteftants are confidered as vile Hereticks, deferring, tp be extirpated by Fire and Faggo;, and tp be devoted jjp !Zj eternal Deftructicm. His Manifefto is dated at Rome; O and, by his Principles, he is obliged to overturn our holy hh reform'd Religion ; and, by all the Methods of Violence and Cruelty, to propagate and ellablilh the Roman Carbq-lick Faith, with its numberlefs ihocking Abominations.  (U Further, we think ourielves indifpenfobly obliged to re- ^ mind you, that it is a well known Popilh M.ixim, That Faith is not to be kept Inheritance, on tiie Footing of an indefeafible Right and Property ; that zp if, he claims a Right to fit upon the Throne as Heir and.i-Q Succeflbr to the late King James, who, for his Aibitrary d and Tyrannical Adminiftration, and his repeated Attempts to fubvert .our Religion and Liberties, jullly forfeited his  Title to the Crcwn ; in confequence of which, he openly condemns the Revolution as unlawful; and repreftnts the hadpy Period of Government that has been fi ice, as one continued Uftirpation. q -What Security we can n&lie ftrany flf flnT Righls and' X Liberties, under one who claims to be our King, on this Foundation, you need but juil open your Eya to perceive Does not fuch a Claim openly declare, that as whit was done at the late glorious Revolution, to defend our Liberties and ConiKtution, when upon the Brink of Ruin, was unjuft and iinful ? So if he who now pretends to a Right to fucceed the laid King James in the Government, fhould purfue the fame arbitrary and enflaving Meafures, it we:e unlawful for us to (land upon our Defence and it would become our Duty, pahively and tamely, to yield up our-felves to the hardeft Slavery and .Bondage. Is not therefore fuch a Claim, vifibly fubverfive of all the Principles of Liberty, and a plain AiTertion, that our moft important and facred Rights, as now eftabliihed by Law, are not to be defended againft the moft tyrannical and arbi.rary A;tempt to ruin them. Confider what the Hiftory of our own, and many other Nations may teach us to expect from a King, educated in the Principles and Maxims of Popery and Arbitrary Government. The Jnftances ot Tyranny and Cruelty, againft the Proteftants in France and Ireland, in the Popifh and Irifh M (fiacres j wherein many thoufands were barbaroully murdered; the well-known Burning--, and other cruel Per- O fecutions of Numbers of Proteftants ander the Reign of CO Queen Mary of England; the dreadful Sev< rities exercifed p"* upon oar own Countrymen, and worthy Anceftors, before <5 the Revolution, by exorbitant Finings Impr forunent, In- 2| tercommuning, Banifhment, dreadful Tortures, Military *-< Executions, without Form of Law, Beheading, and Hanging, and -Quartering, which many yet alive do well remember: Thefe, and many other Inltances of Cruelty, mentioned in Hiftory, may juftly give you and us the Alarm, and teach us what we have to fear from a Government eftabliihed upon the fame political and religious Principles. And tho' it would appear to be the Intereft of the Party now in Arms againft the Government, to have .the above-mentioned Severities, againft our own Countrymen, buried, ADVERTISE MEN TS.arc taken in for chis Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-House, in Lombard-Street. No Wooden Shoes, No Arbitrary Power. ;
