It was faid Yefterday that an Exprefs was arrived from the Duke, with the Particulars of the Defeat of the Rebels. We hear that when the Duke's Forces were encamped the Evening before the Battle of Culloden, fome Parties of the Rebels came forward to reconnoitre them, upon which the Tattoo was bear, and no Notice taken of them; but immediately after they were gone, his Royal Highnefs order'dthe Tents to be ftruck, and march'd all Night towards the Rebels; whofe Scheme could not be to fight the Duke, as they feem'd to be packing up, in order to hafte thro' the Weflern-Road, and rather Hand the Chance of a Battle with the Heffians. We are aflur'd that General Barrel's Regiment have gain'd the greateft Reputation imaginable in the lat* En-gngement; the' beft of the Clans having made heir Hrongeft kftons to break them ; but without Effect, for the Old 'f angierines bravely repuls'd thofe Boafters.with a dreadful Slaughter, and convinc'd them that their Broad-Sword and Target is Unequal to theMu&et and Bayonet, when % the Hands of V�terans, who are determin'd te ufe them.-After the Battle there was not a Bayonet in this Regiment but was either bloody or bent. Yefterday it was rumour'd that a large Fleet, fuppos'd to be French'were feen on Monday laft off the Ifland of Gucrnfey : But as noAdvice has been heard of them fince, we fuppofe it to be without Foundation. On the 22d Inftant Admiral Martin, in the Monmouth; together with the Yarmouth, Prince Frederick, Lyon, and Hampton Court, return'd to Plymouth, from a Cruize, and brought in with him a French Privateer of 18 Guns. -He intended to fail again in three Days, if the Wind was favourable ; fo that the Outward bound Merchant Ships are like to have a goed Convoy to fee them out of Danger. Letters Yefterday from Falmouth fay, There is Advice there, by a Brigantine bound to Madeira, that flie fell in with three of Admiral Martin's Squadron, who had with them a French Man of War of 44 Gun's; and heard, that they were in hopes of meeting two more of the fame Force. Yefterday Evening an Exprefs arrived from Plymouth, with an Account, that tthe abovemention'd French Man of War was brought into that Place on the 2 3d Inftant, by his Majefty's Ship the, Salifbury, Capt.

On the 21ft Inftant the Ipfwich Man of War got into ' lymouth, in a very fhatter'd Condition, and with a very fckly Crew, as we lately mention'd.

He went to the Place of Execution in a white Waiftcoat, Drawers, and Stockings. Two Clergymen, one of the Church of England and the other of the Church of Scotland, pray'dwith him in the Cart for a confiderable Time. He went out of the Cart up a Ladder, trembled very much, and feem'd under the moft terrible Agonies, but behav'd very Penitent. His Body was carried from the Gallows, and hung in Irons on a Common, about five Miles from London on the Edg-ware Read.- He made a further Confeffion than what has been printed, and deliver'd it the Night before his Execution (in the Prefence of the Clergyman of the Church of Scotland, who attended him) to Mr. Nicholfon, Printer in the Old Baily, who will publifh the fame this Day at Noon (Price Four-pence) and may be had at the Pamphlet Shops, and of the New3-fellers ; and all other Papers that are or may be publifhed relating to him, will be Impofitions on the Publick.

SIR, THE Rebellion (by the Providence of God) being in a Manner at an End* I fancy fome Account of their Chiefs and Clau^ as I find them in Mr. Patten's and Mr. Rae\ Hiftory of the Rebellion in 1715 (they being moftly either the lame People, or their Descendants, in the prefent Rebellion) would not be difagreeable to your Readers. � The Earl of Kilmarvoch incited, in 1715, the Inha-� hitanfs nf Air. Greemri. Imin. &c. tq take Arms for 4 his Majefty King George, and they being well Satisfied of 4 his Attachment to his Majefty's Intersil, and his loyal ' Behaviour and the Fatigues he underwent during that * Rebellion, readily join'd him ; and 'tis not to be forgot, * (fays Mr. RaeJ that the Earl of Kilmarnock appeared at * the Head of aSove 500 of his own Men, well appointed 4 and expert in the Exercife of Arms, who made the 4 handfomeft Appearance of any that were there: Ani * that which added very much unto it, was the early Blof- * fom of the loyal Principle and bducation of my Lord 4 Boyd; who, tho'but Eleven Years of Age, appeared in * Arms with the Earl his Father, and gractfully behaved 4 himfelf to the Admiration of all the Beholders. * In 1715 moft of the AtholMen were in the Rebellion 4 with the Marqwis of lullibardine, who is now in the * Rebellion likewife, tho' what Number he has with him * is uncertain; the whole Number of Atholmen being ge-1 nerally efteemed about 5000. 4 The Earl of Perth's Clan is reckoned about 12 or 4 1500, and r.ioft were in the Rebellion in 1715. * The Earl of PVcents s. Men, about 300, were for the 4 Government in 1715, tho' what Number the Lord LI-4 cho (that Lord's Son) has engaged with him* is uncer* * tain. * Moft of the Broadalbinemen in 1715 were in the Re- * bellion, but by the prudent Care of the Lord Glenorchy, 4 few or any of them have appeared in this. * Local's Men are efteem'd at about 700. * The Laird of Glengarfs Clan is efteemed about $00, and all were in the Rebellion in 1715, and this Gentleman was efteemed inferior (then) to none for Bravery ; he fubmitted in 1715 to General Cadogan at Interne ft, and was pardoned ; young Glengary, who was in the prefent Rebellion, is faid to have been fhor, by Accident, by a Highlander's difcharging his Piece at Sterling, on which fome of his Clan Shot the Highlander* and all march'd off in a Body, within a few Days after the Battle of Falkirk. 4 The Clan of Clanranald'i is efteemed a large Clan, confifting of near 1000 Men ; and wcrealmoft all in the Rebellion of 1715, and atted the Part of Men that were refolute and brave, under the Command of their Chief, who for his good Parts and genteel Accomplifh-ments, was look'd upon as the molt gallant and generous young Gentleman amougft the Clans; maintaining a fplendid Equipage, keeping a juft Deference to People of all Sorts, void of Pride or ill Humour : He perform'd the Part of one that knew the Duty of a complete Soldier ; but a fatal Bullet from the King's Forces at the Battle oiSheriff-muire, thro' the Body, difabled him, but did not daunt him ; fo finding a Neceffity of yielding to the Fate of his Wound, he withdrew, and told his Friends, he could do no more; only his Wifhes attended them (the Rebels) ; h� was lamented by both Parties that knew him. Clanranald is in the prefent Rebellion. * The Laird of Keppoch, or Col. Macdmald, brought about 300 ipto the Rebellion in 1715 ; tho'he had no Eftate or Fortune, properly fpeaking, being only a Tenant at Will to the Laird of Mackintojh, of the Farms of Keppoch, called Brac-hcbzbar ; fo that thefe Men living upon Mackintojh''^ Eftate, were properly at his Command when he thought proper to raife his Vaflalsj tho' in that .Rebellion, Keppoch, out of Emulation to Mackintojh, and to raife his Character, fcrm'd thefe Men into a diftinft Battalion, under his Command j but this was reclton'd not juft in him, according to Cuflom in Scotland, to withdraw from his Mr?er or Chief; yet Mackintojh'^ Good-nature jardone him, as alfo the Mac-Pkerfipis and others, who did the like. Kepfoch\ Character was that of great Subtilty and Cunning (hereditary from his Predeceffors; which probably occasioned Keppoch to be fent lately from the Pretender to Sir Don-nald Macdonnald, to raife his Men for him, but Sir Donald refufed, and wifely join'd Lord Loudon ; ar.d Keppoch returning to the Pretender, was taken, and is now in Ed'inburgh-cafile;) but he was conftantly in Feuds among his Neighbours, and fhedding each others Blood. His Preten fions to ferve the Family of Stewart were very-great, but: yet he never mide that known by any one fingle A&; of Bravery; for when Occafion requir'd him to fhew his (Courage, and to aft his Part as Gi/lycrat:kie, Cromdale and Sheriff-muir; he ftill fhew'd his Face, but never dre\ v his Sword, for his People were expert at nothing mor e than Stealing and public Robberies, and at Perth they made a good Hand in this Way among the Country-P sople.
