" I ARRIVED near this Town at eleven o'Clock, and " perceiving the Rebels to have taken a Position at the up- u per End of the Town, near the Church, and that they had u in some Parts barricaded the Streets, and drawn Chains " across others, I placed my Battalion Guns in Front, u supported by the Infantry, stationing the Cavalry so as " to support both, and commenced by firing upon the u Town with the Cannon; after the second Discharge of " which I perceived the Rebels to fly in all Directions. 46 I then gave Orders for the Cavalry to charge, which u was executed by Captain Pack, and the Detachment of the fifth Dragoon Guards, with the greatest Spirit and u Judgment. u Lord Tyrawly joined me immediately before the " Action, with a Serjeant and twelve of the Romney u Fencibles, and six of the Yeoman Cavalry, who assisted u with equal Spirit in the Charge. t: To Colonel Robinson of the Perthshire Regiment, " Major Miller, Captain O'Callaghan, and Captain Camp- bell of the 41st Regiment, I am indebted for their spi- " rited Exertions and Assistance, " There are between fifty and sixty of the REBELS " killed."
