The Numbers were 62 and 21. Extraff of a Letter from a Gentleman on board the Earl of Gainmrougb, Capt. Carey, for St. Cbriftopber"s, dated Mountsbay, June 13. � On Monday the 9th Inftant we left the Downs in Company with the Eaft India and Cape-Breton Fleets, under Convoy of two Men of War; but having parted with them that Night, we kept on our intended Voyage, till laft Night about Eight o'Clock, we met, off the Start, \vith two large Ships, which we toqk to be Streightfmen, who having Ihew'd Engliih Colours, we likewife hoifted ours, and thought no more of the. Matter. But about Ten o'Clock they both began to edge down upon us; whereupon we immediately cleared tne Ship, and prepared for Rubbers. About Eleven they came clofe along-lide of us, and haded us, and after having ufed very opprobrious Language, ordered us to llrike diredVly or expeft no Quarter. On this we began the Battle, andcontiuued fighting them both; one upon our Fore and the other upon our LeerQuarter, till Two in the Morning : During which Time, our Cannon play'd fo fuccefsfully, that we obliged them both to fheer off They happened to be two French Privateers, one of 30 ahct the other of 20 Guns, who, unlefs we had done them considerable Damage, would hardly have made off fofdon. We ply'd one of them Yard-arm and Yard-arm for fome Time, and" were fo very near them, that we* could eafily perceive every Thing that pafs'd; and when we gave "them the Coup de Grace, we could plainly hear the frequent Repetitions of O mcrtDieu! accompanied with GreatConfufion. We managed our Gans foiWeUv that I believe I fhall fpeak, within Compafe; when.I tell you not one Gun in three miffed.taking Place, and the laftBroadfidc we gave them ftruck on of them direftly in the Middle, which contributed, in a great Meafure�. (0 our Deliverance, ' We ftill prepared for them, expecting another Attack, when we perceived a Dogger bearing down upon us, and taking him. to be another Frenchman, we fired a Broadfide into;hira, which occafioned a terrible Cry for Nlercy, as being Dutchmen} at Day-Light we perceived both the Privateers in full Chace of us; upon which we entLeavoored to get under the Land before a fecond En'-^gement, but found it impracticable, they gaining Ground on us every Minute, therefore found we were under an abfolute Neceffity of fighting them again. Accordingly they came within Gurr-fliot *f us by Ten o'Clock, and continued a Running Fight 'till half an Hour after Twelve, at which Time we anchored in this Bay. Were you to fire the fluttered Condition the Ship is in, you'd be furprifed how it was poffiblc for all of us to efcape without a fingle Wound. Thejr not only fired Bullets into 03, but Slugs, chew'd Bullets, Old Nails, Bottles, Stones, and in fnort every Thing that the Mind of Map could devife moft deftruftive to the Wretch that was lp unlucky as to be wounded; and yet for all this, we mould have had a very good Chance of taking them with a little more Strength, as they they took us for no lefs than a 20 Gun Man of War.-At that Time a Sloop of War was lying in the Bay, a Spectator of the whole Attion, and did not offer us theleaft AMance.' Newcajlk, June 14. By a Letter from Edinburgh there is an Account, that Macdonald of Keppoch's. Standard is taken and brought there, the Motto, Have at the Dogs. By a Letter from Fort Auguftus, dated the 8th Inftant. 'tis faid the Duke of Cumberland's Return to England is poftponed, and that his Royal Highnefs will ftay at that Place a Fortnight longer; which is fuppofed to be occa-iioned by the Revolt of the Camerons. - Wei hear by a private Letter from Edinburgh, that fome Tender-hearted Jacobites there were obferved to died Tears at (the critical Minute the Standards were thrown into the Flames on the 4th Inftant. It is very agreeable News to moft People, that the old Fox, L--d L--t, is at laft trapp'd. We are credibly inform'd, that fome Time ago he depofued the Memoirs ef his own Life in the Hands of an eminent Perfon, with Directions to have them published after his Death ; and as that Cataftrophe feems new not far off, the Curious may expeel fhortly a Story full of Adventures moft various and iurprizing, even a compleat Body of Rafcality and trie Works of the Devil. It is faid he once was in holy Orders abroad, and in a fair Way for the Popedom ; after which he was condemn'd to the Gallows for a Rape, and again for Murder ; all which three great Evils he had the Fortune to efcape; but now at laft is like to make his Exit for High Treafon: So that Col. Cb 4 will be kangd bellow. WednefiJay laft, being the Anniverfary of his Majefty's Acceffton to the Crqwn, it was obferved here with great Demonftrations of Loyaky; particularly by feveral Rounds of Guns fired from the Walls and Ships, and fome excellent Vollies on the Sandhill by the Marquis of Granby'a Regiment; to whom the Right Worihipful the Mayor gave a Compliment of Ten Guineas, to drink his Ma-jefty's Health. Tha: Night 36 Transports, under Convoy, with the Heflian. on board, failed'paft the Bar of Shields for Holland. On Thurfday laft Sir Henry Liddel, Bart, one of the worthy Reprefentatives in Parliament for Morpeth, arrived Here from London. Yefterday fix Poft Chaifes paft thro' here for the North, to attend the Duke of Cumberland. Laft Night the French Officers from Invernefs were at Morpeth in their Way to Carlifle. . We are affured the Eltham Man of War, now lying at Shields, has received Orders to fail directly for Scotland, |. to join Commodore Smith's Fleer at the WeJtern Ifles. By many Letters and Accaunis lately come feom the North, ic is now concluded for certain, that the Pretender's Son has not yet made his Efcape from the PrecncVof Scotland, but ftill lurks' with a few of his capital Abettors, AD V ERTISE M E.N TS are taken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-Hqvse, in Lombard-Street. ;
