General Advertiser (Newspaper) - October 29, 1845, London, Middlesex NtfMB. 3442. T UESDAY, October 29, 1745. 3 1--: of Italy have nr.t been taken /.tore Care of. An approaching Rupture between France and Holland ft cms to be every Day more probabL'. Letter from Kevjcrjlf, 0:1. 25. SIR, ' The Rebels are frill about Edinburgh. Part of tlie ' Forces with my Lord Albemarle landed here two Days ' aco ; fome were blown North as far as Berwick. Next ' Week we expeft General Wade's whole Body here.- ' I cannot but tell you, that the Pretender is intro-' ducirg the Italian Practice of Poyfcning here. For ' lall Saturday or Sunday Morning an Highland Boy, ' about 14 or 1; Years of .4ge came to Berwick, and be-' ing carried before General Handafyd, the Governor, ' was afked Several Q^eftions, when he pretended to have ' been one of my Lord Loudon's Highlanders at the '. Bat:Ie�?f Prellon, and tint he was taken Prifoner by the ' Rebels, and being ill-ufed by them, he had made his '�Efcapc, and got there; but he fe-.m'd fo cunning and ' evafive, that nothing could be made of him, upon which ' he was difmuTed, with a Charge to be taken Care of. ' Soon after a Seijeant of my Lord Loudon's Highlanders ' told him, he wa^ a young Rogue, and did not belong to their Corps, and threatned him, in his own Language, ' tj have him hang'd immediately if he did not confeis ; ' whereupon he own'd, that he was fent with a Bottle of ' Poifon, and directed to introduce himfelf, if he could, ' into the Governor's Kirchui, and there to take the firft ' Opportunity cf fprinkling the Contents upon fome of the ' favourite Diihes, andfo poifon tbe Governor and the Of-' fibers. He has been clofely confined everlince. Tours, &c. ' P.S. I faw a Letter this Day confirming the above, ' with the additional Circumitance, of a Woman being ' employed the fame way, to poifon the Water where their Hones drink.1 . We hear, by the laft Letters from Berwick, that the Rebels have not march'd forwards; but on the contrary have thrown up Intrenchments at Dalkeith, in order to fecure themfelves. it is certain that all the Forces under the Command of m the Right Hon. the Earl of Albemarle are fafely landed in different Ports of the North, except 400.-But not at the �-tj Time prematurely mention'd by fome of the Papers. P By Letters from Halifax, of the 25th Inftant, mention, W that a Second Spy from the Pretender's Army has been ta-p ken up there, with a'great Number of Letters in Cypher � about him. On Examination he proves to be a Nonjuring Minifter; and is committed to the Caftle at Yoric. There is Advice that Admiral Byng was fafely arrived at Holy-Ifland, near Berwick, with the Fleet under his Command from the Downs.-The Admiral having been informed, that the Inhabitants of that Illand had frequently fupplied the French Privateers with Provifions, he has put a Number of Men afhore there, to prevent the like Practice for the future. There is alfo Advice, that Admiral Martin failed from Torbay on the 25'th to the Weftward, with the Wind at E.S.E. with five Sail of the Line. The William and Jane, Hawkins, is arrived at Falmouth in 36 Days, from Barbadoes; and brings Advice, that Admiral Townlhend Was preparing with the utmoft Expedition to fail from thence for Jamaica. The True Briton, Kelly, bound from Virginia to Level pool, was loft a few Days ago on the Coaft of Ire-1 ad. Oh o z Letter from Weymouth, Otlober 26. � The 23d, after the Poft went from hence, came to an � Anchor in Portland Road, and fail'd again Yefterday his * Majefty's Ship the Defiance. ' The 24th came in here, a fmall Veffel from Alderney, � who failed from thence the 23d in the Evenings the ' Matter reports that thjit Morning arrived there two Gen-' tlemen from France, who told him that an Englifh Man ' of War, of 60 or 70 Guns, was in Chace of 10 French ' Merchant Ships, and two Frigats their Convoy, off Odi-' geron Bay� and that a very hard Gale at S.W. came ' on upon them in the Night, that not only his Majefty's ' Ship, but the whole Fleet ihe was in chace of, were * driven on Shore in the faid Bay, and every Soul perifh'd; ' and chat they had taken up 200 dead Bodies the next ' Morning, near Odigeron. BiijloCOcl. 26. This Day arrived here the Marianne, , from Cape Breton in 18 Days; the Captain fays there is no News, nor any Captures lince the Notre Dame de Deliverance, that they are very flourifhing there, and under no Apprehenfions from the French. There are three Gentlemen Paffengers in the Ship, who, I believe will fet Out To-morrow for London, They feem very clofe, which makes People here think they bring fome Nevs s of Confequence. Yefterday the Right Hon. Richard Hoare, Efq; was fworn in Lord Mayor of this City at Guildhall, and h.\d the City Rega'ia delivered to him ; and this Day he wiil go to Vk eltminfter in the City Barge, attended by the Aldermen, and the fcveral Companies in their Barges, and take the Oaths at the Exchequer Bar; and afterwards proceed thro' the City in Proceifion to dine at Guildhall.

Friday died at Salifbuiy in Wiitihire, Mr. Light, an eminent Chemift and Alderman of that City reckon'd worth 10,000 1. a Gentleman of known Integrity, Honour and Loyalty, which makes his Death greatly lamented. Laft Saturday died at Dagenham-Breach, in Effex, Captain Beddcl of Douglas's Regiment of Welch Fuzileers, who arrived from Flanders but the Day before. f~ Laft Night Mrs. Woflington was taken ill juft as the Play was going to begin, which oblig'd the Manager to have her Part read ; but was fo happily recovcr'd before the Farce was over, that fhe will this Night perform her Part of Maria. Lall Night an old Woman who has liv'd many Years in Porridgepot-Al'ey, Alderfgate-fbeet, remarkable for making Simple Waters, by fome Accident fet her Cloaths on fire, and was burnt to death, before any body came to her Afliftance.

Frere Jean 1'autre jour mourut de la gravelle, Son ame aux enfers aumtot devola, Une diable qui pour lors etoit en fentinelle, Lui cria, qui va la ? Une Pretre, repond i!, une Ame criminelle ; Alte la, je avertirai mon fentinelle Tu n'entreras point ici, ni ton femblable ; Car puifqu'etant en haut, vous manges votre Dieu, Peut etre qu'etant ici has, vous mangeres !e Diable. I. Afflicted fore with Gout orStone, But which we do not find, Not long ago, died Friar John, And left this World behind, II. To Hell's dire Gate the trembling Wight Was now approaching near, When ftraight the Sentry of the Night Roar'd horrid-Who comes there ? III. A Prieft am I from holy Rome, Quoth John, for Want of Grace Condemn'd, alas! to have my Doom In this tremendous Place. IV. A Prieft ! Stand back, reply'd the Guard, tj Your wicked Life to rue. Is there no other Hell prepar'd For Cannibals like you ? V. Go, Wretch, go, where you may, remove, For I fhall always fear, That you who eat your God above, Will eat the Devil here.
