Whitehall^ April'2.6, This^ftesnpon a Meffenger.qr/iyed.frpm the Duke of Cumberland, with the following particulars of the Victorys obuined; over, the Rebels, on Wedjiefday, the i6tl\ Inftant, near t'ulloden. Iniiernefs, April 18. ON Tuesday the 15 th the Rebels burnt Fort Auguftus, : which convinced us of their Refofutioh to ftamd an Engagement with the King's'FrPops. Wegave"our Men, a Day's Hak at Nairn, and on the 16th marched from thence, between Four and Five, in^ four'Cohimris. The thtee Lines of Foot, (reckoning the Referve for on'^) were, broken into three irorh the Right,' which'niade the three. Columns equal, and each of five Battalions.. The Artil-lety and Baggage followed the firii Column upon the Right, and the Cayaly made the fourth Column pn \\\$ Le&. After we had marched about eight Miles, our advanced Guard, compofed of about forty of Kinrrfton'Sj, and the Highlanders led by the Quarter-mafier General, perceived the Rebels at fome Ddlance making, a Motibn'to-wards us on the Left, upon which we immediately formed; but, finding the Re'bels were ftill a good Way from us,' and'that the whole Body did not come forward, we putour-fetv-es Again on our March in our former Pofture, and continued it to within a Mile of them, where we again tormed in the fame Order as before. After reconnoitring their Situation, we found them pofted behind fomeold Walls and Hutts, in a Line with Cuiloden-houfe. As we thought our Right entirely fecure, GeneralHawley and General Bland went to the Left with the two Regiments of Dragoons, to endeavour to fll upon the Right ^lank pf the Rebels, and Kingfton's Horfe was ordered to the Referve. The Ten Pieces of Cannon were difppfed, two in each of the Intervals of the firft Line, and, ail our Highlanders (except ahout One hundred and forty, which were upon the Left with Gen. Hawley, and who behaved extremely well) were left to Guard the Baggage.- '* ' When we advanced wir'hin^oo Yards of the Rebels, we found the Morafs upon our Right was ended, which left our Right Flank auite uncovered to them; his'Royal Highnefs thereupon immediately prder'd Kingfton's Horfe from the Referve, and a little '-Squadron of about fixty of Cobham's which had been patrolling, to cover our Fjan|i ; and Pulteney's Regiment was ordered from the Referve tp the Right of the Royals. We ipenC above half an Hour after that, trying which fhould gain the Flank of the other ; and his R'oyal Highnefs having fent Lord Bury forward within a hundred Yards of the Rebels, to reconnoitre fomewhat that appeared like! a Battery to us, they thereupon began firing the^r Cannon, which was extremely ill ferved and ill poin'ted : Ours immediately anfwer'd them, which begun their Coiifufion. They then came running on in their wild Manner i and upon the Right, where his Royal Highnefs" had placed - himfelf, imagining the greateft Pum would fre therci they came down three leveral T'mes within a hundred Yards of our Men, firing their Piftols and brandiftiing their Swords ; but the Royals and Pulteny's hardly took their Fireiocks from their Shoulders, fo that after thofe faint Attempts they made o|F; and the little Squadrons on our Right were fent to purfue tbem. General Hawley had, by the Help of our Highlanders, beat down two lir,tle Stone Walls, and came m upon the Right Flank of jheir fecond Lirie As their wholi fifft:Line came down to. attack at once their Right fornewliat outflanked BarreP's Regim,e)jt, which was our LerV, andthe greateft Part" of. ttte/litfle Lofs -we fuftained, was there ; But "Blrgh's an,d^ernpiit's giving a Fjre'upon thofe who had-outfenked Barret's* loon repulfed them,an3:Barre|i!s and Ae.LeYt!c^ iVfunr^'s fairly beat-them ^vkii-their^ Bayonets VThere*was fcar�e.ari Officer or Soldier of Barrel's; arid "thaiPart pf, Muh'rp's which engaged, who did not kill oie p/two Men'each with their Bayonets and Pontoons* The Cavalry., which had charged from the Right and Left, met in the Center, except tw.p Squadrons of* Dragoons, which we miffed, and they were gone m ?urfuit,of the Runeways: Lord Ancram was ordered to purfue tvlth tbefe as far as he could ; and did ft with fp good an Effeft that a very confiderable Number were killed in the Pdr-fuit. As. we were in our March to Invernefs, and were near arrived there, Major General Bland fent the annex'd Papers* which he received from the French Officers and Soldiers furrendring themfelyes Prifoneri, to his Royal Highnels. Major-General Bland had alfo made great Slaughter, aiii took 50 French Officers and Soldiers Prifoners, in his. Pur-fuit. By the kbeft Calculation that can be made, 'tis thought the Rebels loft 2000 Men upon the Field of Battle, and "in the Purfuit. We have here 222 French) and 326 Rebel Prifonersj as will appear by Lilts, hereunto annexed. Lieutenant Colonel Howard killed an Officer, who appeared to be Lord Strathallan, by the Seal, and different Com-4 minions from the Pretender found in his Pocket. Tis faid Lord Perth, Lord Nairn. LochieL Keppockj and Appin Stuart, are alio "killed. Ail their Artillery and Ammunition, of which a Lift is alfo. annexed* were taken* as well as the Pretender's and all their Baggage. 1 heir were alfo 12 Colours taken. *� All the Generals, Officers, and Soldersj did their ut-molt in his Majefty's Service, and {hewed the greateft Zeal and Bravery on this Occafion. The Pretender's Son, it. is faid, lay at Lord Lovat's Houfe at Aird, the Night afcer the Action. Brigadier Mordaunt is detached: with ooo'VoIunteers this Morning into the Frazier's Country, to attack all the Rebels he may find there. Lord Sutherland's and Lord Reay*s Pto-le, continue to exert, themfelves* and have taken upwards of 100 Rebels, who are, lent for; and there is great Rea-fon to believe Lord Cromarty, and his Son, are alfoi taken. The Monro's have killed Fifty.of the Rebels their Flight. As it is not known where the greateft Bodies of them are, or which Way they, have taken in their Flight, liis Royal Highnefs has not yet determined which Way to march. On the 17th, as his Royal Highnefs. was, at Dinner, three Qiiicer?, and about fixteen of" Fitz James's Regiment, who were mounted, came and furrendered themfelves Prisoners. The killed, wounded, and miffing of the King's Trpopsj (as by the annexed Lift,) amount to above 3.00. The French "Officers Will be all fent to Caxlifle, till his Majefty's Pleafure fhall be known. The Rebels, by their own Accounts, make their Ldfs greater by two thouiand than we have ifcated it. Four cf their principal Ladies are in Cuilody, viz. Lady Ogilvie* Lady Kinloch, Lady Gordon, and ihe Laicd cfM'Intofli's Wife. Major Grant, the Governor cf Invernefs, is retaken ; and the Generals Hawley, Lord Albermarle, Hufke and Bland, have Orders to enquire into the Reafops for his furrendring of Fort George. P. S. Lord Cromarty, Lord M'Clcod his Son, with other Prisoners, according to the inclofed Lift, are juff brought in from Sutherland by the Hound S':oop, which his Royal Highnefs had fent for them, and they are jult now landing.
