By a private Letter from a Northumberland Gentleman at Invernefs we have an Account, that Sir William Middleton and the Marquis of Granby were in the Heat of the Action at Invernels, and behaved with the greateft Refolution and Bravery. rl he Sheernefs Man of War, with the Providence of Bofton, late belonging to Capt. Sinclair, is expected at Shields very fgon. Yefterday arrived here the French Officers and Men taken Prifoners at Invernefs : The Officers \re at Liberty on Parole, but the Men are lodged in the Moot-hall. We hear, that the Rebels having had about 250 Prifoners (taken at the Surrender of Fort George, Fort Au-gullus, &c.) fhut up in a Church about fix Miles from Invernefs, his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland, on the Evening of the 16th paft, as foon as he arrived at that Town, detach'd a large Party to relieve them ; which was accordingly done that Night, and luckily prevented their falling a Sacrifice to the Refentment of the Rebels, fome of whom had been enquiring for them before the Horfe came up, but were told by one of the r own Number, that they had efcaped to the Mountains. On their being brought to Invernefs by the Horfe, his Royal Highnefs ordered them a Guinea each for their fteady Loyalty te his Majefty. ExtraSi of a Letter which arrived by an Exprefs laft Monday. * My Intelligence leads me to affure you, that the Re-' bels are totally difpers'd; that the Pretender's Son has ' fled, with only two Attendants; and that the Affair is ' quite given up, the Rebel Chiefs and Officers having ' given their laft Orders to the Men to fhift for themfelves. ' Great is our Deliverance, and Great is our Deliverer.' Shields, May 1. This Day arrived his Majefty's Sloop the Heund, Capt. Dove, with five Tranfports from Invernefs, having on board 13 French Officers and 297 private Min Prifoners, taken at the Battle of Culloden, by his Royal Highnefs the Duke. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, May 1. We have Accounts from moft of the Royal Boroughs and remarkable Towns in Scotland, containing Narratives of the loyal Rejoicings on the Rebels Defeat, and the Duke's Victory. News from she North is, that the Rebels were pkk'd up in all Corners; 20 have been taken at Mbntrofe, and feveral here. Thofe who had beft Accefs to know, declare, that they had a very fcanty Subfiftance for three. Weeks before the Battle ; that the Lofs of the Hazard Sloop, ftruck p. Damp amongft the Chiefs not to he ex-preffed; but as it was carefully concealed from the ,pri-vate Men,, they were under no Concern. That Sullivan , had the foje Direction. The Pretender fled firit, miftak-ing>an Order given to retreat -xo Paces, to fave them from the Duke's Cannon, whichgaU'd them extremely-About 2000 were next Day at Badenoch, burr finding .no Subfiftance they dlfperfed. Lord George Muwrav, &c. beg'd tA\o Hours to" make his Efcape without any Obferva- tion--Old Lochiel is dead, and the young Gentleman wounded, but is with the Chevalier, whp, .it is fuppofed, has gone to the Weftem Ifles,. This Mowing his Royal Highnefs the Duke's Coach attended b^y fix Huffars and 'Footmen, in exceeding rich Liveries, kt out for the North. His Excellency Lieutenant General Gueft, Jate Commander of .the Forces in Scotland, is fet.putfor-York. The Invernefs Poll is jiot yet arrived, but by Letters from Aberdeen we learn, that the Prifons are quite crou-ded. And4hat the Rebellion feems totally .fuppreffed. The Reprefentation of the Battle near C^Jftden-Hoi under the Command of our.GIqrioiis Heroe the Duke, has met with fuch univerfal A^plaufe from Crowded Audiences, that.the Proprietor of the New Wells in Goodman V-Fields, takes this Opportunity, to return his Jmmble | Thanks for their kind Appearances ; and as' ..every pne who has feen the Battle is pleas'd' to fay it is done far beyond their Expectation, he hopes for their further Indulgence. The fame will be perform'd to Night, w�H ie-veral Additions. As the Proprietors of Sadler's Wells have diligently eu brae'd every Opportunity of giving their Audiences Satisfaction, they would have thought themfelves guilty of the high.-ft Error to have been.filent upon the jprefent happy Occafion: Every Clafs of Britons muft-be pleafed at the leaft Hint of Gratitude due to th>at excellent Prince, who has expos'd himfelfto fo many Difficulries forthe fake of his Country, and therefore they have endeavour'd to fhew a Natural Scene of what perhaps may happen to many an honeft Countryman in Confequence ot the late happy Victory, in a new Interlude of Mufick, cail'd trephon's Return, or the Britifh Hero, which will be perform d this Night, with many Advantages of Drefs and Decorations N.B.Mr. Matthews will dance a new Ballet this Evening. In an Ad-otrtiftnunt Yefterday, dated Fulham, May 6, 174.6, Line 2, far laft, which read laft. Mo nth. j, As our Aim in general has been to pkafe and gain thi Friend/hip of tkofe e-printed the following Ejfay, for the Entertainment of our Readers. We have copied it from the True-Patriot, of laft Tuefday, a Paper of much Spirit, that is publifii'd Weekly. Conamur, tenues Grandia - Laudes egregii Ctefatis. - Hor . Carm. I. 6. AS we have endeavoured during the late curfed Rebellion, in common with the reft of our loyal Fellow-Subjeds, to lend all the Affiflancein our Power to the Sub-verlion of Tray tors and Rebels, againft the bed King and the beft Conftitution with which any People were ever blefs'd ; we hope it will not be deerh'd an unpardonable Prefumption in us, if we now venture to approach, with others, the Steps of the Throne, with Congratulation, and prefume to offer up our little Salver of Jncenfe, together with thofe who are truly fenfible of the great Deliverance we owe to the Conduct and Courage of- the victorious Duke of Cumberland. In lhort, as we fhould certainly have been one of the firft- in the String of Loyalifts, who would have had the Honour of being hanged had the Rebellion fucceeded, we fhall at leaft be allowed fome Place ^among thofe who triumph in its Defeat. And here when we contemplate that facred Perfon whofe Throne was attacked by thofe impious Mifcreant-, we are ftruck with as profound an Awe and Reverenco, as the greateft Eaftern Monarchs infpirc into the Minds of their loweft Subjects, when they approach them. Thofe Monarchs indeed owe all that Refpeft to the outward Splendour and Magnificence of their Thrones, while our Sovereign wants riot that Pomp to add to the Rtfpeft commanded by his Princely Virtues; and it is not barely by being feen, but by being known, that he. becomes the Ob-jeft of Admiration and Reverence. If Juftice be a Quality of this kind, there is no Man, however tinctured with the Principles of Jacobitifm, but muft be obliged to confefs that hi3 prefent Majefty poffeffes this Virtue in the moft eminent Degree. His whole Reign cannot produce one fingle Inftance of Injuftice, which can be derived from the Throne, againft tr-e Properties of the meaneft Perfon in Great-Britain, nor indeed which hath been fuffered or winked at by our Sacred Sovereign. When the OpprefTed can once reach his Ears, they are certain of obtaining immediate Redrefs; and if any havVfailed of this, it hath been owing to others, and not to the King himfelf; indeed to that Misfortune, infepara-ble from the Conftitution of all Government, in large Countries, where the Way to the-Throne can never pofli-bly lie open to every Subject: But this I will aver, and I do it not only from many Public Examples, but from the Relation of thofe who have had the Honour to live within the neareft Sighj: of their Sovereign, that no Monarch, nay, no Man hath ever been more inflexibly juft, and that as well in the Diftribution of Rewards as Punifhments. Again, if in the latter Inllance, to temper the Rigour and Severity of Juftice with Mercy, be moft amiable in the Character of a Prince, as this is a Quality of all other?, which it is in the Power of the Human to imitate the Divine Majefty, this is known to refide fo abfolutely in the Breaft of our Royal Sovereign, that with Regard to Military Punifhments, which in this Kingdom can never be inflicted without the King's figning the Sentence, the Officers tif the Army have been often known to lament this merciful Difpofition, that makes it always difficult to obtain the Royal Warrant for inflicting Death on Deferteis: But this^ is fo apparent from the .very rare Examples of this Kind^ that it was fcarce neceffary even to mentipn it. This is a Quality which can never ejerft feparate from Benevolence, nay, in Efte#, it is no other than a Branch of it, or may lie perhaps.mqre.properly called Benevolence in Authority. We fhall therefore not be furpdfed to find numberlefs other Marks of this excellent Temper in our Sovereign. ,Buthow effectually muft it endear him to his, whole People, when it is pjjbjjckty known, that the late glorious Victory conveyed but little Joy to the Throne, compared with what flowed thither from the Contemplation of the great Delight with which it was received by all Ranks of People. To find the Safety of his Throne efta-Jililhed by the Strength erf Bis Arms muft have giyen^a- in.the Hearts of his'SubjectsSfrhich gave Raptures."' How excellent muft be the Mind of a Prince who could declare, It was tbejtre_eteft Happinefi he ever felt, to fnd he
