DUBLIN CASTLE, 12th June, 1798. ADVICES have been received from Major General Nugent, that on the 9th instant, Colonel Stapleton had attacked a Body of REBELS near Saintfield, and at first suffered some Loss, but in a second Attack he entirely defeated them, with great Slaughter. Captain Chetwynd, Lieutenant Unite, and Ensign Sparkes were killed, and Lieutenant Edensor wounded. It appears that a Report which General Nugent had received of a large Body of REBELS having entrenched themselves near Toome Bridge is un- founded, a Party of them, which had been dispersed, had broke down one of the Arches. The Bridge has been again made passable. Colonel Clavering has reported from Antrim, to General Nugent, that the dis- affected in the Neighbourhood of Antrim had expressed a Desire to submit and return to their Duty. At Ballymena, one hundred and fifty Muskets and eight hundred Pikes have been given up to the Magistrates; many Arms, five hundred Pikes, and a Brass Field Piece, have also been surrendered to Major Seddon. General Nugent expresses his warmest Acknowledgments to the Regulars, Mili- tia, and Yeomanry Force under his Command, for their Alertness, Zeal and Spirit. Major- General Needham has reported, with every Expression of Regret, the Loss of Captain Knox, of the Yeomanry, and of six Privates, in the late Action at Arklow. Captain Knox was killed in the Charge which was made on the REBELS with so much Gallantry and Effect. The disaffected in the Town of Kildare have made several Attempts to dis- lodge his Majesty's Forces from that Post, by repeatedly setting it on Fire. Much of the Town has suffered, and it has required the utmost Exertions of the Soldiery to prevent the Whole from being destroyed. By a Letter received this Morning from Major- General Sir Charles Asgill, it appears, that he had attacked, with three Hundred Men, a REBEL CAMP at the Roar, near Ross, which he completely dispersed, and killed FIFTY MEN. Further Advices state, that Lieutenant Colonel Stewart having marched from Blaris with a Part of the Argyle Fencibles, 30 Cavalry, and some Yeo- manry, arrived at Ballinahinch, as the Rebels were beginning to collect. He relieved some Yeomen, who were in their Possession j the Rebels fled into Lord Moira's Wood, whither they were pursued, about 40 of them killed, and the Remainder dispersed.
