A LETTER from IRELAND, giving an Account of a Bloody Engagement be­tween the Protestants at London-Derry, and the Irish Papists near that Place; with the Parti­culars of the Routing of the whole Popish Army, &c.

A Letter Yesterday arrived from Dublin, which saith, That several Waggons of wounded Officers, were come to that City, and that those of London-Derry in a late Sally with the greatest part of the Garrison had routed the Popish Army, killing several Thousands, raised the Seige, and retook the Fort of Kilmore, and return'd with a Vast Booty; and that the Flower of their Army was kill'd and taken; and that those of Dublin were so exaspe­rated at the News, they were much ado restrained from doing Violence to the Protestants. And the Letters Ye­sterday from Liverpoole are to the same effect, That the Gar­rison of London-Derry had in a late Sally killed an incredible Number of Papists, and raised the Siege: That the Marquis de Pusigan, and the French Bombardeer were both dead of the Wounds they received in the Sallies. And those from Whitehaven give an Account of about an Hundred Irish Protestant Gentlemen, who had been in those Parts for some time, having spent what Monies they brought over, would try an Exploit at Sea; and accordingly, well Arming themselves with two Ships, Steered for Ireland, and Sailed to a place, Called, Dunhalady, wherein were Two Irish Companies, who upon the Approach of the Ships, thinking the English Fleet was not far off, ran away; so the Gentlemen landing, opened the Prison, and set free Three Hundred Protestants, and Plundering the Town, brought away a great Booty, with an Hundred Papists, the Chief of the Town.
