Exceeding welcome Newes from BEVERLEY.

ON the 25. of Iuly, his Ma­iesty received severall Pe­titions from the neighbou­ring People, wherein was expressed many insupport­able grievances, and in­sufferable iniuries, which they had sustained by some Cavaleers that were Bille­ted in the neighbouring Villages, some 3. Miles distant from the Campe, withall manifesting that the said Cavaleers had taken their Horses, under a pretence for his Majesties Service, and had sold them to severall Persons, by whom they were de­tained, to the great dammage of the said Owners, humbly desiring his Majesty to take it into his se­rious consideration, and that according to his ma­ny Declarations and Protestations, that the porest of his Prootestant Subjects should not want his protection, he would now, not onely redresse those present in­juries, [Page 2]but protect them from future wrongs and dammages of the like nature.

Which Petitions were by his Majesty graciously accepted, and those Cavaleers by his Majesties speciall command put to exemplary punnishment, to the end that their examples might deterre others from committing the like misdemeanors.

Thomas Sanderson was caused to ride through the Camp, with his fcae towards the Horse Taile, af­terwards discharged from his Majesties Service.

Dudley Kilbourne was put into the Bilboes foure houres, and casheer'd likewise.

Sammuel Anderton was in great danger of being hanged, for entring into a poore-mans House, and threatning him, saying, he would cut his throate, if he would not tell him where he had hid his old Angels, but being censured to stand in the Bilboes three severall daies, he was committed to the Pro­vost-Marshall, to whome the charge was given, to see the said sentence put in execution.

Severall Libels and scandalous Writings against the Parliament, were scattered in the Campe, which were shewed to his Majesty, who was high­ly displeased therewith, openly declaring the Au­thors of those scandalous Writings, to be the chiefe promoters of these troubles and distracti­ons, withall promising reward to him that would produce the Authors, protesting to make them ex­amples to all the seditious Spirits in the King­dome.

His Majewy seemes to be much discontented, [Page 3]and addicted to melancholy, delighting in no mirth or recreation, onely in surveighing his Army, and observing the Scituation of the Country, and it is generally hoped (however his Majesty stands ingaged to that Party, for the present) that he in­tends not to alter the Religion of the Kingdome, nor to make Warre against his Subjects.

His Majesty doth generally declare against Tu­mults, and Oppressions, and all his declarations which he frequently publisheth, are seconded with protestations, that his Royall intention is to main­taine the true Protestant Religion, and the antient Laws established by his Predecessours.

The Cavaleers are very forward in their At­tempts against Hull, and apt to ingage themselves in any Designe, that may in their judgements tend to the promotion of a Warre betweene the King and Parliament, and it is generally beleeved that if his Majesty had bin as forward as they; some­thing had beene begunne, that would not have beene ended suddenly, against Hull I meane.

The Gentry and Commonalty of Yorkeshire, which are now under his Majesties command, doe declare themselves for the King and Parliament, tand tis thought as soone as the Forces raised by ahe Parliament shall be on foot, they will call to astrict accompt some, that now make their power the limit of their wills, and rule both his Majesty and them by their beguiling pretences. There is shrewd muttering against the Earle of Lindsey, Earle Rivers, the Earle of Newcastle, Captaine [Page 4] Porter, and Mr. Murrey, who are suspected to be the cheife incendiaries and promoters of this War.

There comes in supplies of Men and Horse day­ly, but all declare themselves that they come so armed for the defence of the King and Parliament.

The Declaration of the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament.

THe Lords and Commons doe declare, that they onely aime at, and desire nothing more then to main­taine the purity and power of Religi­on, and to honour the King in his just and Regall Prerogatives, esteeming nothing like the Liberty, Peace, and Safety of the Kingdome, nor thinking any thing to be too good to be hazar­ded in discharge of their consciences [Page 5]for obtaining it: Alwayes repo­sing themselves in the protection of Al­mighty God, which they are confident will never be wanting in his blessing to­wards them, while they seek his glory, as they have found him wonderfully going along with them in all their pro­ceedings.

Ordered that this be printed and published.

Joh: Browne, Cler. Parl.
