Dublin Castle, 2d June, 1798. ACCOUNTS have been received from Major- General Eustace, at New- Ross, stating that Major- General Fawcett having marched with a Company of the Meath Regiment from Duncannon Fort, this small Force was surrounded by a very large Body between Taghmon and Wexford, and de- feated-— General Fawcett effected his Retreat to Duncannon Fort. This Morning was received a Letter from Colonel L'Estrange, of the Kings County Militia, which ftates that the Town of New town- Barry had been attacked Yes- terday Morning by a very large Force from Vinegar Hill. They surrounded the Town in such a Manner that Colonel L'Estrange at first retreated in order to collect his Force; he then attacked the Rebels in Newtown- Barry, drove them out with great Slaughter, and pursued them several Miles, until Night obliged him to return. The Rebels were in very great Force. Colonel L'Estrange's Detachment consisted 230 of the Kings County Militia, 17 Dragoons, and about 100 Yeomen. Colonel L'Estrange speaks in the highest Terms of the Conduct of the Troops, and attributes much Praise to Major Marley, who volunteered on the Occasion. The Rebels lost above 500 Men. The Picquet Guard of Yeomen, commanded by Mr. Cornwall, surprised in the Night a Party of Rebels try- ing to enter Carlow, and completely defeated them.
