The late Seizure of the Powder at the Magazine at Williamsburgh, has incensed the Inhabitants of that Province to such a degree against his Excellency Lord Dunmore, their Governor, that the Virginia Gazette, or Norfolk Intelligencer, of the 4th Instant, says, "His Excellency, the Governor, we hear, with his Family have retired on board his Majesty's Ship the Fowey, now lying at York, in Consequence of the Disturbances occasioned by the Removal of the Powder from the public Magazine at Williamsburg."
We hear from Williamsburg, the locks were taken off from the magazine, that the Magdalen Schooner is in York river, under the protection of the Fowey man of war, ー that Lord Dunmore had fortified himself in the palace, and his Lady and family gone on board the Fowey for safety.
We hear that Capt. [Charles] Murray in a Sloop from the Coast of Africa, was brought to, yesterday, in our Harbour, by Capt. [James] Montague of the King-Fisher Sloop of War, who ROBBED him of 6 Swivels, a number of Cohorns, and 120 lb. of Gun Powder, &c. [Quere, Is not this invading private property?]
