One Col. [Thomas] Gilbert, a high prerogative man in Boston government, about thirty miles from hence, with 60 or 70 of his neighbours, armed themselves; they agreed to def end themselves from the insults of the sons of liberty; but some militia men, zealous in the cause, went in chase of them. The Colonel took refuge on board a man of war in this harbour. The others, except 20, made their escape; these 20 are now confined in Providence gaol, where they were conducted last evening. What will be the event time must discover.
