To the Author of the General Advertiser. SIR, YOU will do the Publick Service by inferting in your Paper the following Anfwer to that Part of the Pretender's Declaration, where he promifes to maintain the Church of England as by Law ejiablijhed. It is taken from a Speech fpoken in the Houfe of Lords by a late Reverend Prelate, in the Year 1704.. 4 I knew, fays the Biihop, one of the moft eminent 1 Papifts of the Age, who uied often to fay, He was for ' the Church of England as by Law ejlabljhed. 1 took the ' Liberty to alk him, How fuch a Profeflion did agree ' with his Sincerity ? He anfwered, He looked npen the * Laws of Queen Mary as yet in fu'l Force; for he ' thought Queen Elizabeth who repealed them, had no � more Right to the Crown than Oliver Cromwellhad ; fo � that her Laws were no Laws.' From the London Gazette. Tripoly, Jpril 9, O.S. On the cth Inftant came in here a Veilel from Bengafi in the Kingdom of Barca, belonging to the Balhaw here. The Mailer brought Letters to the Bafhaw, that the Plague was broke out at that Place ; that ten Perfons were dead of it; that moft of the People had removed for Fear of it; and that the French Cunful was fhut up in his Houfe. Upon this News, {he Bafhaw or-dered the Veffel to fail out of the Port, not fuffiring any one to come on Shore. Tripoly, May 15, O.S. By our laft Advices from Bengafi, by a French Veffel which ftood off that Place, the Plague continued raging there, and had carried off above Forty Perfons eyery Day for fome Time pall. Conjlantinople, Aug. 30. By Advices receiv'd from Per-fia, the Army of this Government, confifting of 130,000 Men, commanded by Yeghen Balhaw has been entirely defeated. The Bafhaw brought to Cars ico,ooo Men, and found there about 30,000 ; from thence he march'd (contrary to the exprefs Orders of the Porte) dire&ly towards the Perfiari Frontiers. He met by the Way two or three fmall Parties of 5 to 9000 Perilans entrenched, whom he put to Flight very fuccefsfully, one after another ; elevated with this Beginning of Succefs, he march'd on towards Erivan, near uhich the Perfian King lay encamp'd, with about 4C000 Men, and one of his Generals at lomefmall Diftance in an adjacent Valley, had likewife a Body of 40000 Men under his Command. The Bafhaw not imagining the main Army to be fo near, fell in with acother finall Entrenchment, and routed it; thofe Perfians immediately retired precipitately towards the Shah's Army, which foon advanced to their Succour, and the Bifhaw immediately found himfelf engaged in very difadvantagious Ground, with that Part of the Perfian Army commanded by the Shah, whilft the other 40,000 Men, with the Perfian General at their Head, took him in Flank. The Turks were foon broken, above half their Infantry was cut to Pieces; and the Bafhaw himfelf, endeavouring to rally them in Perfon, with his Sabre in his Hand, received a Mufket-fhot, of which he died in a few Minutes in his Tent, whither he was immediately carried. ' JTis allured that their Lois amounts to at leaft 28,000 Men, befides three Bafhaws of three 1 ails kill'd in the A&ion, one of xvhom particularly, as well as Yeghen Bafhaw, is much regretted, having both a high Reputation for Valour here. The Turks abandoned their Camp, Cannon and Baggage, but the cautious Perfian did not purfue, or even let his Troops advance to plunder what the Enemy had left, till he could be fure there was no Stratagem in the Flight, or Fear of the Enemy's returning upon them, whilft they fhould be bulled in, the Pillage, when he had waited many Hours, and received ceitain Intelligence of the Enemy's being really fled, he made himfelf Mafter of their Camp, Baggage and Cannon. The Remains of tne Turkifh Army, in Diforderand Confufion, without a Head or any Difcipline, are returned to Cars. Gibraltar, Sept. \%. Admiral Medley, w.hp had lately returned hither with his Squadron, to make his Ships fit for the Sea, fails this Day out of the Streights to obferve the Motions of the Enemy. We hear from Carthagena, that the Ships cf War there are fixteen in Number, with four new Galleys ; that there are three French Men of War at Cadiz, with fome Merchant Ships, which are bound up the Streigh&s ; but afraid to proceed, as our Ships lie in the Way. This Garrifon continues in good Health, and we have Plenty of Provifions. Oporto, Sept. 25. We have Advice here from Galicia, that the Ferrol Squadron was ftill in that Harbour, ready to fail; that no Refolution about making the Draught? from the Militia was yet come from Court, the Want of which was believed to be the only Thing that retarded the failing of the faid Squadron, which was it ill faid to be de-figned for the Havannah; from whence feveral Ships were certainly expetted with Treafure for the King, in November or December. o 2 Whitehall, OBober 19. By Letters from Berwick, of the 16th there is an Account, that upon the 13th in the Evening, the Rebels having obferved a great Light made in the Caftle of Edinburgh, which was anfwered by Lights from the Fox Man of War in Leith Road, thofe who were in the Town or Suburb?, hurried from thence to their Camp at Duddmgfton, where they remained all Night. By 12 o'Clock next Day, the Pretender's Eldeft Son marched into Town, attended by about 100 People on Horfeback. The Foot followed, and they march'd up to the City without flopping at the Abbey, or in the Canon-gate. Very few remained in their Camp, and there was not above 20Tents left ftanding. Advice from Edinburgh of the 15 th, a Party of the Rebels were preparing to march to Montrofe, for the Arms and Money faid to be landed there  and it continued to be given out, that their Main Body were to march towards Berwick that Day, all the Carts in the Neighbourhood of the Camp having been ordered to attend. There was a great Spirit of Infolence reigning among the Highland Officers againft their Chief Commanders, occafioned by the Want of their Pay. Whitehall, Oii. zz.
