This Day an Exprefs arrived from Edinburgh, with the following Advices. Edinburgh, April 26. The Victory obtained over the Reb*Is by his Koyal Higbnefs the Duke, appears every Day to be more and more corapleat and decifive. Thurfday Morning about Three of the Clock, being the Day after the Battle, the Pretender's Son, with Sheridan and Sullivan, and no other Attendants er Servants, was feen pafling Fort Auguftus in his Way to Glengary. Fort Auguftus is burnt and blown up, and there is neither Garrifon nor Provifions there. On Saturday the 19th, Lord Perth, and his Brother called Lord John Drummond, were at Garricmore, within 12 Miles of Fort Auguftus, on their Way ,to Lochabar, attended only by their Servants. The latter order'd the French Horfe of Fitz James's Regiment, who had followed the Pretender's Son and him out of the Battle, to return to Invernefs, and furrender themfelves Prifoners: And the General and laft Order given by the Rebel Officers to thiir Men, was to fhift for themfelves. The Macpherfons were not at the Battle, but were that Day on their March to Invernefs, and upon meeting the Rebels running away from the Action, they returned to their own Country. Lord Elcho was at the Battle, and 'went off with the Pretender's Son, but afterwards they feparated. Orders are given along the Coaft to prevent any of the Rebels from making their Efcape by Sea. The Illuminations and publick Rejoicings here, on Oc-cafion of his Royal Highnefs's Victory, exceeded all that were even feen in thefe Parts. Venice, April 20, N.S. The continued hard Rains which have fallen lately, have probably retarded both the Operations of the Campaign, and our receiving Information from the Armies. A Report prevails, that the Spaniards h,ave begun to withdraw their Cannon from Placen-tia, end vthat they are preparing to retreat themfelves by Stradella towards the Genoefe State j but as yet there is no authentick Confirmation of it. ExtraB of a Letter from Edinburgh. * � The Rebels took the Minifter of Fochabers Prifoner * and carried him with them over the Spey; the honeft � Man could not think of being Idle on the Lord's Day, * and therefore having procured a Stool, he got on theTop � of it and gave them a Sermon, and particularly exhorted * them to lay down their Arms and fubmit themfelves to � the Duke, Which he prefs'd from the Injuftice of their J � Caufe, and the Danger there was of delaying: He faid \ � now was- the Time, and it was poffibk if they fubmitted ' now they might meet with Mercy; the Highland Chiefs � hearing of him, begaa to think he was a dangerousPerfon ' to keep as a Prifoner, and therefore thought fit to � difmifs him, and now he is fafeiy return'd to Focha- * bers. Yefterday the Right Hon. the Hoafe of Peers waited on his Majefty with their Congratulatory Addrefs on the Vittory obtain'd over the Rebels. To which his Majefty was pleas'd to make the following moft gracious Anfwer. My Lords, CfU E Succe/s of my Arms againjl the Rebels is the more rable.
