DUBLIN CASTLE, 8th June, 1798. EARLY this Morning an Express was received from Major- General Johnston, dated at New Ross, the 5th Instant: By this it appears that about six on that Morn- ing, the REBELS attacked his Position at New Ross with a very large Force, and great Impetuosity, but that after a Contest of several Hours they were com- pletely repulsed. The Loss of the REBELS, was very great, the Streets being literally strewed with their Carcasses. An Iron Gun, upon a Ship Carriage, was taken, and late in the Evening they retreated entirely to Carrickbyrne, leaving several Iron Ship Guns, not mounted. General Johnston states that too much Praise cannot be given to the Forces under his Command ; and that to Major General Eustace, and indeed to every Individual, he was in the highest Degree indebted for their spirited Exertions. The General severely regrets the Loss of that brave Officer, Lord Mountjoy, Who fell early in the Contest. A Return of the killed and wounded of his Majesty's Forces has not been received, but it appears not to have been con- siderable. PARTICULARS RELATIVE TO THE COUNTY OF WICKLOW, Extracted from a Letter of MAJOR HARDY to LORD CASTLEREAGH, dated Wicklow, 4th June. " The Troops in this County have behaved uncommonly well, especially " the Yeomen of this Town. The Shillelagh Troops also acquitted themselves " nobly in beating back the Wexford REBELS. Our Yeomen have been now " sixteen Days on hard Duty, and the last ten Nights constantly up. Their " Hours of Rest from three or four in the Morning till ten or eleven. The " REBELS are numerous in our Woods and Mountains, but from the great " Exertions made to get up the Arms before the Rebellion broke out, and the " unremitting Assiduity exerted since to prevent any falling into their Hands, " they have been prevented from acting with the same Effect as their Associates • " in Wexford. There have been five Engagements at different Times in this " County, and I do believe we have killed above seven hundred REBELS."
