The Governor of Sinila flew off in his shirt, abandoning his wife and children to their fury, Gentry, Ecclesiasticks, United Greeks &c. have all been murdered by those rebels, who spare neither women nor children. The rebels have already murdered many thousan Jews; they burn all their books and papers, destroy their habitations, and carry off their provisions. It is afforded, that the cause of these disorders, that the confederates of Bar threaten to murder those old Greeks unless they embrace the Roman Catholic religion.
