It has1 * been given out daily, that they were preparing to march 4 towards us, but we are in no Pain about that, for by * what we hear, they muft be more united before they un-' dertake any Thing further of Importance. Lieutenant-' General Handafyde is come down here, and has taken 1 upon him the Command of our Troops. We long to ' hear of Marfhal Wade's being fet out towards us with ' the Army encamped at Doncafter* which we areinform'd ' will be encreafed to more than 15,006 by the Forces ' from Flanders under the Command of the Lord AI-' bemarle.

S I R, AS we are conffcmt Readers of your Loyal Papers, be fo kind to acquaint the Publick in our beaalf, That whereas we are informed certain Impudent, Jelui-tical, Diabolical Perfons have dar'd to fend a threatning Letter to a great Prelate near St. James's, in order to deter him from difcharging hk Duty; in his ufual moft Apoftolical manner ; We the Underwritten; thinking Ourfelves as well qualified, in Practice, (tho' not in Principle) for Bloody Executions, as any Prieft of the Church : of Rome; and being Authoriz'd thereto, by the Laws ef God and Man, do refolve to attend, fome or other of ' Us, upon the Steps of our good Teacher, for his Pro-: teftion ; and in cafe of a Dark-Attacking made updn ' hiaa, by thofe Blood-Hounds of the Pope, we will make 4 no Scruple to chine down, and deftroy them, by thofe ' Infiruments God has put into tour Hands ; confidering ' fuch Affaflins asBeails of Prey, ready to deftroy as weil the Sheep as Shepherds of the Fldcki-And we further re-' commend this Practice to our Brethren cf the Cleaver, ' in all Parts of this Metropolis ; not doubting but they ' will have the fame Regard for Thofe who teach us to * be Men f in Oppofition to f uch, who {by their intruding < into our Profeffion) feem to rank us with themfelves, ' among the lnftruments of the Devil. Yours, The'Butchers of St. James's Market. O �3. n % o hj Continuation of the QUESTION, Whether England can be other wife than miferabk under a Popif/o King? &c. IShould now come to the next popifh reign, that of K. James II. buUhall notexpatiate onit, ab hehadnot time to go ib far as Q. Mary, tho' he began in the fame manner, preferring papiih to commands in the 3imy, fending feven bifhops at once to the tower, and fetting his own will above the laws, which he had fulemnly fworn to preferve; but the wifdom of our fore-fathers put a flop te his illegal and rtT arbitrary pjoc-.edings, and I hope their poll'erity will not " make another trial of a popifh prince. Should the Jacobites now tell you, that the Pretender dcfires to come in updn .a proirftaJtt footing.-Take care how you believe them -Q^Mary faid the fame, elfe our forefathers would not have arm'd her hands for fo much mifchief. But whoever tells you fo, affjonts ytfur underltanduigs Has he not been bred up under the eye of the pope f Is he not obliged to the court of Rtme, and other courts that profefs the religion of Rome, lor the fubfiftence of himielf and his family ? Do you imagine a pope would be weak enough to protect that family fo long, unlefs he had the ftrongeft affurances of their zeal in his caufc ? But this is not all our proof. Coniider the furpriz-ing growth of popery for feveral years paft: every body has not opportunities of obi'erving it, and people are ready to drfbelieve a thing which does not fail within their own obfefvation ; but the man is a papifi, or wifhes well to popery, who perfuades you that we are in no danger from it. I can prove that there are meetings in all parts of the towru. where children are inftrucled in the principles of that church, that the priefls are always ready to viiit the fick, before the minifters of the parifhes can hear of them j that popifh pamphlets, very artfully written, are conltantly difperfed about thenaticn by their priefts, in difguife, who are many thoufands in r.umber, and the more dangerous, as they do not wear the gown, but the fword ; befides, there are abroad upwards of fifty religious houfes for the education of Englifh priefls and nuns, fupported at the charge of the Englifh papifts. One mifchief of this you will immediately fee, that it carries vaft films of money out of the nation without any returns; but there is a greater danger in it. You may remember to have read in fcrip-ture, that the land of JEgvpt was pu'nifhed among other c& plagues with locujls : animals that no fooner came upon the land, than they devoured its they filed Pharaoh's houfes, � and the houjes of all his fdivunis, and the houfes of all tht JEpyptians. The fame will be the cafe, whenever thofe nurferies of priefls are let locfe upon the people of England. They wiLI cover the land and devour it, and fill our houfes, and feize our property, and then call it facred, that we may never have a right to feize it again. They have done fo formerly. Before the reformation the religious houles, as they were very improperly called, pof-fefled not much lefs than three fourths of the land of this kingdom. And how can you imagine they will treat a nation, which, for almoft two hundred .years, hath, in their opinion, been guilty of facrilege ? How will the prefent invader treat you, when he gets you in his power, whole every declaration is full of threats, and calls you traytors ? Should a promife of toleration be made in religion, and the prefervation of liberty; property, and all fecurities, iri their prefent itate-The pop-f? maxim is known, that faith is not to be kept with Heretics, and their bifhops are fworn to perfecute them, -j- Should it be told you that the French government is novf good, and great, and merciful-You may deny it all; for they do nothing but by force and arbitrary meafures. Their national credit in public funds is quite funk, by our taking* their India fhips, and perfecution is let loofe at this very time by two edicts in February lalt; the dragoons commit the moft outrageous violences on the poor Proteftants in Montauban^ where io,coo families are reduced to beggary and want. To conclude ; it is the intereft and duty of every Eng- rj% lifhman to contribute his part towards keeping out popery j�* and the Pretender. If you have not. z-al enough for your
