ExtraS of a Letter from an Officer of Dijiinfiien at Strathbogie, to a Genthman of thitToivn, dated March 21.'  4 I'm forry to begin with a Piece of bad News, that ' Fort Auguftus is taken, or rather Shamefully given up, * the Rebels having loft cm!y four Men before it, ' To balance this, on Monday the 17th General Bland* � who was at Inverury and Old Meldrum, had Orders to ' march with four Battalion?, the Argylelhire, Kingfton's, ' and Cebham's Dragoons, to Strattibogie, upon >Con-' firmation that 1; 50 cf the Rebels were the.e. The next ' Day his Royal Highnefs ordered Brig. Mordaunt to * march with four Battalions, and four Piecesof Cannon, ' to fupport him, if there was Occafion. ' The Defign was, to attack the Uace if the Rebels ' held it out; if they left it; to ftay there. It is very 1 ftrongly fituated, between two Rivers, and capable of ' being defended with great Advantage. v ' The General march'd accordingly, and arriv'd within ' two Miles ef the Town before the Rebels had Notice ' of his Motion. As foon as they faw him, they run to ' Arms, and made a Shew of defending the Plaue ; but ' on the Approach of our. Grenadiers, and .the Argylefhir�-' men, they abandoned it, and fled in great Confufion. . * The General ordered the Horfe to purfue them, which ' they did fome Way, and fired feveral Times; but with- * out any Confequence, that I hear ef, but wounding one ' Roy-Stuart in the Arm. 1 he Dark coming on, the ' Horfe were ohligedto return. ' The General Jaid, if he had had but two Hours more ' Daylight, there would not a third of the Rebels have ' efcaped. It was a cruel Day of Rain, which made the ' March, long and tedious as it was, very troublefome. ' The Rebels were obliged to leave their Dinners fo~our ' Men. As it was Evening, you will wonder the Scoun-' drels ihould fall fo foon into Quality Hours. One ex-' plains it thus, They had marched to Caftle Forbes, I ' luppofe, expecting their Appearance would have fright-' ened it into a Surrender; but when it was not delivt-red ' up, they look'd at it, and returned. From that you ' may judge cf their Condition the following Night, fa-' tigued, frighten'd, and Itarved. - 4 The Army at Aberdeen has Orders to be in Readinefs * at the firft Notice.' Exti-acJ of a Letter from Aberdeen, March tz. 4 On Tuefaay laft General'Bland, with fome of our * Troops quartered at Old Meldrum and Inverury, went ' to Strathbogie, upon Information that/ome of the Rc-4 bels had advanced as far as that Place, and found about * 1000 of them very merry at Dinner; but, on the Ap-' proach of General Bland, they,left the Town in the.ut-4 moft Hurry and Confufion. The General, with King-4 ftoDe's Horfe and the Dragoons, purfued and kiled.a 4 great Number of them, took 500 brands of Arms, and 4 14 Days Provifions which the Rebels had brought with 4 them. 4 We are informed here, that*they have gone quite frorh 4 us; 'tis thought they wJl never look' us in the Face a-4 gain, or that they are attempting to get to England onCe 4 more. - SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, March 27. His Royal Highnefs the Duke ftill continues at Aberdeen ; there is' Advice of the fafe Arrival of Bligh's Regiment, the recovered Soldiers,'and the Storefhips. . A Detachment of about 60 Argyllfhire Highlanders, and 20 pf the Duke of Kingfton's Light-houfe, which fhould have rejoined their refpective Corps on the 20th ult. but apprehending no Danger, remained at Keith fix Miles from Strathbogie: About 12 thatt Nig^hr/ -the Village was furrounded, by 400 of the Rebels, afharp Skirmifh erifued, a few were killed on both Sides; but that'fmall Party being overpowered by Numbers, could hot defend themfelves long, and were obliged to furrendec Pjifoners. Some Soldiers having plundered {he Houfe of Mr. Gordon of Cowbairdie, who is in the Rebellion, his Royal Highnefs the Duke not only (on Information of this Abufe) ordejed theJeaft Trifle to be reftbred, but prtfented, his Lady with a Purfe pf 100 Guineas, -and gave her his . own fign'd Protection. ' ' r / A. Letter from Angus gives an Account, that fome Pri-Toners which had been taken at the Battle of Falkirk, had made their tfcape from the Rebels i they fay, that their Thhin Body was at Forrefs and Elgin, and that they were in the.utmoft Diftrefs for ProvifionV, that they thelrrfelvcs were almoft. famifhed-before they found Means to get^>^ and that the raw green Kail from the.
