Whitehall, March 21. An Exprefs which came- in Yef-terday from his Royal Highnefc the Duke of Cumberland, brought the following Advices. Aberdeen, March 14. Our Apprehensions about Fort Aaguftas were well grounded, for we have now pretty certain Intelligence, that it is fallen into the Rebels Hands, and that the Garrifon confifting of three Companies of Guile's Regiment, are Prisoners of War. We do not know how they defended themfelves, as we have not had any Notice of what pafled, either from Major Wentworth who commanded, or any Officer of the Garrifon. The Rebels are laying in their Magazines and Stores there, and Izvt aftually blown up Fort George, in doing which they hare blown up therr'chief Engineer Colonel Grant. The Precaution we have taken for the Security of Fort_ William, will probably become of immediate, Ufe, as enr Acconnts from the Rebels^ through the.Hills, affure us, tkey have actually inverted that Place.' We are however allured, that they cannot-cut off our Cotnmonicatioh with that Piace by Sea; . fifty.

Wehave Ad^ce here, that * ?arty of the anihiinririg iti toon M*�r y at Glenavis, within two Miles of us, and that their Train of Artillery is to be To-morrow at Highbridge, which is fix Miles from this Fort. We have heard ofthe taking,,of Fort Anguftos, and expcdLto. be^attecketLj but Governor Campbell is deterMmedTto* defend the Piaceko tfee^tmoft of to Power. For fdrhe�*y\paft i^&have-bem feme finaH Parties of the Rebels polled on each Side the Narrows ef Carron, in which, oni isatBrday laft> they took me of the Boats belonging to fhe;fiakimore?Sk|epi a*ihewas coming from Scilleftall Bay^-and fent the Crew Rrifoners to their Head Quarters. As'.feqa as we had Infei^tice of this Accident, a Council jya� called, t^n^ftihi of Land aid �ea Officers, and a Refofotwa taken to fend a strong Party to difledge the Rebels. In Comeq�rtic� thereof^ early this -Morning Captain A&ew o? the. Serpent Stoop fent bis Boat *tfh 27 Men in it, anQther Rjat of th^^aKiiriore's vvith: 24 Men, and a Boat befonging to Fort William with 20, down the Narrows, .where they all arrived: by Day-light. Captain Aikew's Men landed firll, and were immediately attacked bya Party of eighty Rebelsr who-hred upon them, but without doing them any Damage;,and upon the- reil of-the-Men belonging to theiJoats coming up, the Rebels fled. Our People purfued them, burnt;the Ferry-houfes onbdth Sides of the Water, and a little Town with about 12 Houfes in it, a Quarter of a Mile diftant from the Ferry-honfeon the North Side, and deftroyed or brought off all their Boats. Two of the Rebels were kdledTin this Affair, and fcveral wounded. It was very lucky that our Boats went down as they did, for there was a Boat with a Party of Militia in it, that was coming hither from Stalker Cattle, which would probably have fallen into the Hands of theftebels, -but forthe-Skirmifti before mentioned. Dunjlafnage, March> 6. It was expeded that the Rebels would have got their Guns up to Fort William laft Night. Eiktiflalker Cajilt, March 7. Yefterday Captain Frederick Scott came hither from Danftafhage, but could not I get any farther, the Rebel5 having guarded both Sides of , the Narrows.
