The various Motions of the Rebels have occalioned our Train of Artillery, which had been defigned to go to Carlifle bySunderland Bridge to flop, and it is to go by Hexham and Brampton ; towards which �rll Place proper Perfons are fent to view the Roads, and provide for the Troops on their March. By two Deferters arrived here from the Rebels near Car-I ^ifle, we are affured that they had only fix Waggon Load ' of Bread and two of Cheefe, and that their Number is not inorethan700o.--~0ne of the Rebels who was taken at Coldllream, and fent to Berwick, was formerly an Officer in the Excife ; he faid upon Examination, that he wag fent to choofe proper Ground to give General Wade Battle, and that Rimfide-Moor, a Place between Roth bury and Alnwick was Hx'd upon as fuch ; but he is a lying Ral-cal, and no regard is to be had to what he faid.

It is excelTive Cold ; our Canvas Habitations badly * gaard us from the Inclemencies of the Weather, and i ' vsifh for an Opportunity of ufmg rather the Sword than ' the Pen , but I fear the Rebels will parry off Fighting ' as long as they can. The Welfare of my Country, and ' all that is dear to us depends on the SucceA of our Arms j ' and if I fhould be fo happy to fee an end of thisRebellion, ' it will be the greateft Satisfadlion to me, to fhink I have ' contributed all in my Power towards it.

Letter from Lancafer, AW. 15. SIR,, *When the Rebels retired from Carlifle, which was done after fummoning it to furrender, without firing a Gun, the Garrifon made a Sally upon the Rear, and took two Cart-loads of Targets and another of Bread. It is alfo reported, that three or four were killed by the great Guns from the Garrifon, one of whom was a Perfoft of Diftinftion, believed to be Lord George Murray. * On the 14th about two in the Afternoon, Thomas Crozer, who was fent from this Town to obferve the Motions of the Rebels, returned from the Neighbourhood of Brampton, and brings us Advice, that he few a great Body of the Rebels near Brampton, and was pur-lued by a Party of them, and that feveral Perfons fent on the fame Errand wi:h himfelf were taken Prifoners; and that one Capt. Moore of the Weftmoreland Militia, was taken Prifoner as he was going to the Garrifon at Carlifle; that the Rebels fince they had retired from Carlifle, had cut down great Quantities of Wood in Warwick Park, ^nd a Wood belonging to Corby-Caltle, and made Scaling Ladders and Fafcines, to be ufed in an intended AflTault upon Carlifle ; that he was informed on the 13th, about two in the Afternoon, that the Rebels were moving with their Artillery, &c. towards Carlifle, and as he returned towards Penrith heard great Guns continually firing, till he got near Penrith, which was about five in the Evening, which he apprehended was from the Garrifon, to prevent the Rebels raifmg any Batteries againft them. The Garrifon at Carlifle are in great Spirits as well as the Rebels; and the fame MeiTen-ger fays, that the Rebels are but 6000 elFeftive Men, and the reft mere Shabroons, making 10,000 in all, and their Horfes are in moll difmal Order. * We are under a great Concern here for the Garrifon and Town's People of Carlifle, and are afraid they will not be able to hold out long in Cafe the Rebels fhould continue their AflTault, which we are in great Fear of. I am, (5 c. ' P.S. Juft now an Exprefs brings us an >\ccount, that the Town of Carlifle has furrendered upon thefe Terms; That the City Gates are to be fet open to the Rebels, and the Inhabitants are to pay them two thoufand Pounds, or to have their Houfes rifled. The Capitulation was lafl: Night, and the Town furrender'd this Day at Eleven.
