General Advertiser (Newspaper) - September 30, 1845, London, Middlesex Numb; 3399, Deal, September 28. ;" -1' " ,EMAIN the Royal George, Admiral. Vernon, the Duke, Sandwich, two Flirefliips, and the 'Patch Admiral; the Sarah,Powers/ for Gibraltar ; Succefs, .and Victualling Tranfport for Plymouth ; and the Amphitrite, for Fiufhing. Wind S.E. TheFriendfhip, Beale, from Maryland and Leith, is arrived in the River. The Warrington, Cook, from London, at Leverpool. LONDON. Private Letters lately come from the Army under his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland in Flanders,, give an Account, that tho' molt of the ...Inhabitants of Ghent . and Bruges were in the. French Interefr, they now own a ^ Difference be:ween their Garrfon, and an Ebghfh one, by feveral Invafions on che.r Rights and Liberties. The 00 Governors of Bruges, immediately he entered there, q fent for the Magiitrates and told them in a polite Manner, rj Provijioxs were fo very dear, his Officers and Soldiers could " not live, and requelted them to lower their Price ; but they remonltrated, that more was not exacted of them than was ufually paid by all without Diitinftion j which not being fatisfa&ory to the Governor, he ordered that no Body lhould preiume to take more than two thirds of the Price for Meat, which it was then fold for; and among other Things of the fame Sort, liking the Fifh-market, which was kept in a handfome Square in the Middle -of the City, he gen-teely told them, There wete Jitter Places for it, he could �depend, on .their Civility in letting him have it fir himfelf and his Officers; and by his abfoiute Authority immediately moved it to a remote Part of the City. It is fuithtr (aid, that the French Officers were very licentious in their Quarters -By tms Behaviour may be feen, the unhappy Fate of thofe who fubmit to and encourage the French, the molt perfidious and cruel of all Nations in the WoMd. The French Merchant Ships from the different Ports of France for Martinico, San Domir.go, See. which have Jain ready loaded from Febiuary and March lalt, are at laft departed, under Convoy of four Men of War; they fail'd from Rochfort the 8th Inliant, N.S-Thefe are the Ships mentioned in the Papers as Tranfports, no other fleet having as yet failed from the French Ports- We ate affur'd, by Letteis from Deal, that the French are actually embarking a confidcrable Number of Troops at Dunkirk ; and at the fame time mention, that they have . not any Men of War in that Port to convoy ihem : But ^> if they have, we make no -doubt the Ever-Vigilant Vernon V will be-able to give a good Account of the Tranfa&ions & at Dunkirk. j? The Gentlemen of the County of York have already fubferibed 90,000 1. for Arming, Cloathing and Paying 0 4000 Men in Defence of his Majefty's Perfon and Govern-2 ment, and their own Religion, Liberties, and Properties, and have refolved to augment that Sum, if there ihould be Occafion. A great Number of Gentlemen Voluntiers have alio engaged to ferve at their own Charge ; among whom 1000 Hbrfe are expected to be brought into the Field. 'Tis faid that the Right Hon. the Lord Herbert, who is beloved as a Father by his Tenants in Shropshire, has en-liiled 5000 of them in the fame Caufe. Such a publick Spirit mull foon extinguifh even the Hopesof the Domellick as well as Foreign Enemies of our envied Happinefs. On Thurfday laft the Nobility, Clergy and Gentry of Lancafhire affembled at the Town-hali in Prefton, and with the greateft Unanimity enter'd into an Aflbciation to raife immediately a Body of 3000 Men, for the Security of his Majefty's Perfon and Government. The Company were acquainted with the Occafion of the Meeting in an excellent Speech msde by the Earl of Derby, and feconded by Mr. Bootle. On Friday laft an Aflbciation was begun and carried on with great Spirit, by the Right Hon. the Lord.QnQgw> the Speaker of the Houfe of Commons, and Several pkher Gentlemen,to raife a Body of Men in the County of -Surry, for the Service cf his Majelly and the Nation. They write from Dunham Maffej in Chrfhire, the^Seat ef the Earl of Warrington, that his Lordlhip' has futrjiJh/4 all hisTenants with Arras and Ammunition,who b'ave'neiV'd U their Names to be ready on the firlt Notice, to &ki\&i\c ^ Religiajyand Libwtes of their Country. � * � ^7 q Several of the Tradefmenof Norwich have entered into V an Aflbciation to defend his Majefty and his Illuftrious Fa-" mily, and the Proteftant Religion, againft all Popifli Pretenders and their Abettors. Among the many bafe Artifices employed to hurt the Publick'Credit, and thereby to diftrefs Trade, we hear that a Certain noted Gentleman hath diftinguifljed himfelf by drawing out the Sum -of 50001. which he had in the Bank, carrying the Money to a Banker, changing it for Hank Notes, drawing out his Cafh again, continuing the fame Roiind till he was difcovered.--'Tis hoped that, when he comes to be named in a proper Place, he will be treated with that Contempt which is due tp his bafe Attempt, by all who wifh well to the Commerce and Proipe-rity of Britain. Another well drefled Rafcal came into a Coffee-houfe feme Nights ago about Seven in tbe Evening, and crying �ut that we were all andone," for that the Bank wasj&ut:.-replies an old Gentleman of 70 Years, it is always . Jbut up two Hours before this Time, for Fear of fuch -Rogue us you are. Whereupon the Scoundrel turn'd on his Heel, and quitted the Ccffee-houfe without any Reply. Un Saturday Morning the Hudfon'* BayCompany revived the agreeable News, that all their Ships, viz. �Hnce Superr, Capt. Spurrel!Mary, Capt. Coats ; tfjidfqn's ^y.Capt. Fowler; and the Seahorfe, Capt.
