(Giving an Account of the Turkish Rebellion in Natolia.)

ARE-BET-OGLU,

refolv'd to rob the Caravans of their Mo ney, Cloth, and other Effects worth ta king.

The Seraglio was foon inform'd of these but whether it was from

Sane OGLU, is the Son of A Scorn, or from other more preffing Affons

Ottoman Empire. His Mother, from his Childhood, fill'd his Mind with the Principle of Revenge; because, on the Death of his Father, the Porte had not only deprived him of great Part of his Poffeffions, but clapp'd up his Sifter in the Seraglio.

Having, nevertheless, a confiderable B Eftate left in Natolia, he form'd a Faction of Malecontents there, who fortify'd themfelves in the Mountains of Bosdag and Diagli Bogaffe, which are the Retreats of the Robbers that infeft the Country between the Rivers of Sarabat and Madre..

Sare-Bey-Oglu made himself their Chief, and fixed his Place of Arms in an old Castle on the Top of a Mountain, fortify'd and furrounded with Trenches, fo that 'tis out of the Reach of any Artillery: And his Lieutenants are intrench'd in the Defiles, or narrow Pafles of the Mountains, and in old Cottages.

At his firit fetting out, he was very civil and kind to the Carravans, and Ínhabitants of the adjacent Country, in hopes of gaining their Love and Efteem. And when the Camel-Drivers went in any dangerous Road, or to any Place where there was little Profit to be made of their Merchandize, he obliged them to change their Course, and gave them Safe-Guards and good Convoys to conduct them to Provinces where they might find a better Market. This fhew'd that he was well inform'd of the Scarcity or Plenty in the feveral Countries of Afia Minor, and had good Friends there. 'Tis reported, that F he had the Affurance to fend the Grand Vizier an Account of the Situation he was in, and protefted that he would never lay down his Arms till he had obtain❜d a fuitable Equivalent for the Pofleffions which had been taken from him; and that the Chiaja, who was ftrangl'd two Years ago, G held a Correfpondence with this Rebel. However, the Porte defpifing his Remonftrances and Menaces, he commenced Hotilities against every Thing that belong'd to the Grand Signior and the Courtiers, without laying a Finger as yet upon the Effects of private Men, who, therefore, very much extoll'd his Moderation and his H Favours. But at length his Refources beginning to fail him, he laid Contributions upon the Towns and Villages, on Pain of military Execution; and as this prov'd

ot enough to fupply his Neceffities, he

in Hand, took no Notice of 'em, which Neglect fo embolden'd the Rebels, that one of their Detachments, confifting of about 3000 Men, advanced within Sight of this City, which, tho' very large and populous, and defended by a Sort of Citadel, was immediately cait into the most dreadful Confternation. The Street of the Franks, that is to fay, where the French, English, Dutch, and Italian Merchants live, was in a particular Manner in fuch a Confufion as is not to be imagin'd, and every Body being afraid of a general Maffacre, carry'd their Furniture and best Effects on board the Ships that were then in the Harbour; and as faft as the Warehoufes were ftripped, they were crowded with the Women and Children, who made the most bitter Outcries.

Amidit all this Confufion, the Dutch Conful fhew'd a great deal of good Conduct and Refolution. He caufed all his Countrymen to teke Arms, and moor'd a great Veffel that was unladen to the End of his Gallery, in order to retreat to it in cafe of Necellity. This done, he fortify'd the Entrance of his Houfe with 6 Cannon, a Quantity of Grenadoes, and a numerous Guard; and made a Company of 60 Men to take the Field, under young M. Renard, of Amfterdam, who was their Captain, in order to patrol in the Night time, that he might be informed every Moment of what paffed, and take his Measures accordingly for the Service of his Nation, either by a Retreat, or by a ftout Defence.

At Break of Day, the Commandant of the Rebels who was one of Sare- Bey Oglu's Lieutenants, propofed a Contribution, and an Interview with the Magiftrates, to prevent the City from being plunder'd; both of which being granted him, he had the Rafhnefs to come into the City, where he was well received by the Regency, and had 15,000 Crowns paid him, befides Prefents, and then he retir'd out of Town. This was reckon'd the more impudent in him, because it was known afterwards, that he had but 800 Men with him that bore Arms, and that all the rest were ́ only a Pack of Scoundrels and Vagabonds that had join'd him for Sake of Plunder.

The Fright being over, the Citizens ftar'd at one another with Surprize, to find that 40,000 Men, fit to bear Arms, had fuffer'd themfelves to be infulted in their own Quarters by a Gang of Ban

ditti: But this was the Confequence of that Panick to which the Greeks and the Turks alfo are but too liable.

A

The News of this Prank being carried to Conftantinople, and the Emballadors of the Trading Nations having made proper Remonftrances to the Divan, the Porte refolved at last to put a Stop to thefe Diforders, and fent 2000 Men hither to cover the City; which 2000 Men were encamp'd two Leagues from us, when Couriers came to Town with News that the Rebels again appeared in Sight. There B needed nothing more to caft a fresh Terror over the whole Town, and among the above Militia, who abandoning their Tents and Baggage, fcamper'd with all the Legs they had to take Shelter under our Cannon. But next Day the Turks being inform'd that it was a falfe Alarm, return'd to their Camp, and impal'd fome of the Boors alive who had begun to plunder their Baggage. The Camp being afterwards reinforced with fresh Troops and Artillery, they march'd to fight the Rebels, and the Detachment which had put us into fuch a Confternation, and which had made a Halt, for the Sake of Plunder, in the Neighbourhood of Ephefus, was overtaken, attack'd, and defeated; and feveral Sacks, filled with the Heads of thofe People, were brought hither, and fent to Conftantinople as Trophies of their Victory.

Hanover, December the 12th, O. S. On the 4th Inftant, a Detachment of Hanove rians, confifting of five hundred Men, with two Field-Pieces, march'd to take Poffeffon of the Territory of Steinhorst, which belongs to the Privy-Counsellor Wedderkop, wherein were pofted thirty Dragoons in the Service of the King of Denmark. F "The Colonel who commanded the Detachment no fooner arriv'd, but he fent a Lieutenant to the Danish Captain in the Caftle to acquaint him, that he was come with Orders to take Poffeffion of it, and, if he refus'd, to turn him out by Force.-The Danish Captain having answer'd the Lieutenant, that he was commanded to repel Force by Force, the two Officers had fuch bigh Words, that they drew their Swords and fought a Duel, in which the Danish Captain was kill'd on the Spot, and the Lieutenant mortally wounded. The Hanoverian Colonel having advanced with his Troops in the Interim, to begin the Attack, a very smart Skirmish ensued, wherein feveral Soldiers were kill'd on H both Sides. The Danes then drew up their Draw-Bridges and retired into the Castle, where they defended theinfelves

G

a-while; but the Hanoverians having, by the Means of great Hooks, pluck'd downt the Bridges, they enter'd the Castle, and took Poffeffion of it, by Vertue of an Inftrument drawn up by a Lawyer and a Scrivener, whom they had fent for from Hamburg, for that Purpose. See p. 35.

Conftantinople. The Embaffadors of Thamas Kouli Kan, Sophy of Perfia, immediately after their Arrival, infifted on a fpeedy Audience of the Grand Signior; but being refufed by the Grand Vizier, unless they communicated to him, according to Custom, their Commiffion, they declared they had Orders to return home, if their Demand was not complied with: Whereupon a Divan was held, in which it was agreed to conduct their Excellencies to an Audience. Being introduced, they affured his Highnefs, in the strongest Terms, of the Sophy's fincere Defire to live in a good Understanding with the Porte, but that the only Way to ftrengthen the Peace was to reftore the City of Babylon, and feveral other Places in Perfia. The Ottoman Minifters promifed the Embaffadors, that the Grand Signior's Intentions fhould be communicated to them as foon as poffible; but the next Day, in liea of an Anfwer, they furrounded their Palace with 300 Janizaries.

Corfica. The Affairs of this Ifland have taken a different Turn fince our laft: The Corficans having fallen upon a Party of French, fent to protect fome Villages that had accepted the Amnesty, and deliver'd up their Arms, and kill'd two Officers and thirty Soldiers. When the French King heard of this Action, he said, "This is no "longer the Concern of the Republic of "Genoa, the Honour of my Troops lies at "Stake:" and defigns to have 26 Battalions in the Ifland, befides Huffars.

Petersburg The Perfian Eubaffadors have received Advice, that the Sophy has renewed the War with the Turks, and actually formed the Siege of Teflis with an Army of 170,000 Men. This Court feems refolved not to act at all upon the Nieper, the next Campaign, but ufe its utmo Efforts to conquer the Crimea.

Paris. The Parliament having fent Deputies to Versailles, to intreat his Majefty to permit it to make its Remonftrances to the Pope's Brief against the Calvarists, (an Order of Nuns convict of Contumacy for not receiving the Pope's Conftitation) relating to the University and the Evocations to the Council; the King has fignify'd to them, That he will receive none at present; and that he requires of them abfolute Obedience to his Will, feeing he refolves upon nothing without mature Deliberation

N. B. It having been confidently denied by the Author of Common Senfe, in his laft Journal, that he made any Advances towards a Reconciliation, or enter'd into any Correfponder.ce with us, we hope our Readers will excufe us for taking up this Space with a plain and uncontestable Confutation of fo egregious a Falsehood; which we are able to overthrow, not by loud Afperfions, but by evident Facts. We have always apprehended, that to borrow from a Writer is to correspond with him, as an open Trade with a Nation implies a Ceffation of Hoftilities. When, therefore, we found the Imitation of Horace, which we had publish'd in our Mag. of October, 1735, (p. 615.) inferted with Commendation in his Journal of Dec. 23, 1738, we thought it proper to inform the Publick of his Conduct; which, with our ufal Good nature, we were willing to afcribe to the beft Motives. To disown what may fo eafily be proved, required an Effrontery not natural to an Englishman. This Author's Stile his, indeed, inclined us for fome Time to imagine him a Foreigner, and the Sufpicion is now not a little frengthened by his Impudence.
