All the Horle, and tl:fc.Foot Guard% were c^nturi'd round the Town, at a Mile or tivo Dlfta^ce. The Rebds, v'ho were lef:, m-ade a Shev/ of-i.Qtendmg to defend r,'ie ' lacf, firing their Cannon upon every body who appeared in oijjln uf it. The Artillery from WhitehaTen was expefted to arrive in a Day or two at the Army^ and it was propofcd to have a Battery e;eded by the Morning the_.2^thVafter which it w*r;s nofdoubred but lus Rjyal Highnefs would be Mailer of the Town in 1 wenty Four Hour , in which he intended to "leave a fufijcicnt Garvi on.

' * On JSaturdjiy about nine o'C!cck, the Vain of the ' Rebel?, wi h the Duke of Perth, came thro' here, being ' 90 Hones'or upwards, and as we had been informed th^t * they were flying, the jeft of them being furrounded, aftd ' 'they'going through our Tovvh without calling for any *" !rhyig, our Mt b fell upon them witli fctch-f orks. Sticks, � Stones, Sec. killing two and taking three, with the Duke ' �>f Perth^'s Mavl: Irf this Fray three of our People were � fliot, .who are all dead. They went forward to near ' Penrith,' but the Country being all in Arms, and the * Van hearing that thofe behind were fafe, they return'd * to this Town on Sunday Night to join the main Budy,- * who were then come yp. 1 tiid quartered on me 3.S ' Me\i and 6 Horfes, a,iid. bther People in Proportiiin : ' They took a Pair new Shoes from me, and a Pair � from my Man, wqrih together Ten Shillings.

Oti Tuefiiy'th^ relt of our Army ' march'd in very fatf, and went foiward without alight- * iiig, and we kept a Soft of open Houfe fur them in the ' Street. It was aboot Foar when th^ Duke enter'd wjth * the Main. Bw3y^ which made us fo joyful, that it was * jull like raifmg us from the Dead. On Wednelday * Morning his Royal Highnefs march'd out at Seven, and-' in the Afternoon eafne^iip^ with, tjie Rear of the Rebels, * about three IVUks fli6tl ttf PehMtR.V-.^I ivo thoHiaud Foot * were coming in here from Prdlonfijom Nine o'Clock at ' Night till Foor on Ttielday Morning,' dnd fet out at ' Ei^toii Horfeback, and as the Str^'g!6rs came inj we * mottntei them as fait is poflsbie. The Account of the ' Adlion near Penrith ftands thus: Tlie Rebels had placed ' themfelvei behind the Hedges, and firing on our Ad-' vtancc Gaard, kill'd to and wpundcd 25, and three or * four Offijers, amon^ whom w'as Generdi Honeywood, ' WiioWas fh*ot H\ the Leg, in the A:in, and cut in the ' Nei.'ki,.bjtit is hoped not mortah'y. Sixty or femuy of ' the Rebels were taken Prifoners, and 30 of them have * been found thrown into Lowther River. Our Horfe * Hood all Wcdpefday Night in Order of Batt'e, but the ' Rebels took that Opportunity of running away to Cur- * lijle, where f^iver-il of tnem now are, as we are infoi-m'd.

"Extras of a Lettfr from Dtal^ Ded.-z'^. ' I can't help mentioning the great Sciccefs'ihat has at-' tendtd Admiral Vernon's taking under the King's Pay, * and his'Diredion, the three Duver Privateer5, whofe ' Captains are known to be the bell'Pilots iti thuie Sea:, ' and their Veilels of the tttmoli: Service on Account ot * their Drawing fo little Water, not to mention the gie^;: ' Gallantly and Experience ot the Commander^, -w.d * indeed ihnt brave Admiral has made a mod excellent ' Ufe of them,, for they have taken and fent into Dover, * five Ga'.hot-Hoys fivm Havre-de-Grace, which certainly * were to afTift in the French Embar-utioh ; and three ' large Shallop FHhing-boats from Dunkirk to Calais, la-' den with Military Storei, fuchas Cannon, Field-pieces, * SiC tuo iunk, and twelve'chaffd nfhore, moltof which ' have be. n fince wreck'd ; and a V'tfivl blown up, laden * with five Pieces- of -Caanon, feveral Field-Lariiages, ' above a hundred Barrels of Powder, &c. befidei taking a ' Dogger-Privaicer of 6 Guns, and .-o Men; in which ' liiil At'tion, oftne York, was fiiot in the ' Sliouldcr, one of his Lieu'.enants in the Throat, and * fevcral of his Men wouiided, foir.c of them monal y ; * but the hrcnch Captain, his Lieutenant, and fome of ' the Men iv.erc kiil'd, and many wounded.

I can with great PleaCuie ' add, that by thi^ Met-cd, tnis bravi? Priced tj his ' Country, has continually got poiitive Intelligence of our ' Plnem es Views and Intc-ntiom, as to their Embarkation; ' and no doubt terrifies t.'.em from attempting �0 invade ' the Country which he guards.'

One of the Chief Fore'gn Miniflers at Paris hns wrote to his Friends in'Hulland, that a Declaration of War a-giinlt the Republick was in .the Prefs: But this News however is not much believed, the Letters from Verfailles of the 19th not faying a Word of the Matter ; but on the contrary infinuating, that the French Courtis inclined to an Accommodation.
