SiR,^I hive the honour to transmit you a re-.port of the procetHlings of his Majesty's troops tie-(ached for (h6 reduction of the Saints.-We sailed from f'ort Itoyal Bay on the 12th ; Captain Bca. ver, of his Maje.-.ty's ship Acasia, tvho was com-. . iitodoTe of the division, leit the . . adefrom the islet of Cabril, the guns of which fired over the ridge among the sttipping. When fldvancetl to the first ridge, we found (he enemy occupieti the grcit mountain which is above eight hnn c Companies under (,'a|iiains Dolling and Lnpton was great; (he a.sceni no less steep than an angle of fifty degrees, covcretl wifli bush and pridily pears, fhey most gaifaotly tjlTeded the service, and drove back the enemy wh� suffered considerably. The" Rille coittpanies were supported to their right by the flank companies of the 3:1 West India Rt-gi-ment and one company of the Royal York Rau-.gCis led by Lieutenant-Cylonel Campbell,-Deputy Adjutant.Gencral, whom I �!eta�lied for this scr. vice. i We had now a strong position. Before us wdreflie enemy's three forts, showing stout garri-soits, and llfi-ce line of battle sh^S^, and two fi-i-gates in the harbour. The large ship* very full of men. VVc fotflid, however, *e ctmid not advance without biing flanked 00 otw 4eft by the fort Isle dt; Cabrit! Two eight-iirelt howilzers were immediately landed, a battery ll\ftckly constritcK'd by i,.ieutenttit Hobbs of fhc Royal Engineers. RrigadierkGcncral Sieliclin of the Royal Artiflery and'uli his- oflicers and men were most strenuous, aad b(.>fure six that evening oar.battery opened on the enemy's .eqaadroo at a "very fair distance, '^iiont an hoiir after there were indications lh�t � (he i'Vciichsquadroti was aCbout to push oift, and .by eight it was not doubtful. Not a rnvBent was j a the fort on (he Islet. A morla> battery of two I thirieeu-inch, and four (en-inch � as immetliatvly ! I/Ui4iin, and carried on wiih uuremitted exertions; j all our men volunteering wery labour. B.tween pre : <he enemyr'! forts Napoleon ant! Alorello, and ns. was a middle ridge, which ua^s on the back of the town, .and held by the enemy. On the night of the 15th, a stronj; picquet o� the enemy's was curpriseil by two companies of tlie Royal York Hanger.s, coramanilci! hy Captain Starke, and IJeatenaut White. The French had one oPicvr and seventeen men bayonetten, and twilve prisoners were brought away. ThisaOair was hiqhij' cre^ilablc to the Ofiicvrs named. The niaht fol-iowiiig w<! deternvined to occupy the .MidJlc Ridge, and confine-tli��nemy within iiis work.�. Major Allen was ordered wjih the (wo flank compaiuci: of the 3tl West ' "^MajirllemliTSon. The position was taken^ tip without opposition, but abdut eight next morning (he enemy advanced from f.^rts Najioleon and .\lo-relle to recover this ground. A sharp action took place, the whole of the York Rangers, and (he rifle companies of tlie I^Oih, supporting our black troops. The ground lay ojku in great part to the grape shot from forts Napoleon and Mo-relle, and to round shot from Istet de Cabrii; hut all our troops were undaunted ; none were more ac(ivc than the Hank companies of the 3J West India Regiment, and a flank romjiany of the Sih W<st India under Major Al<n. The eKcmy was driven back with Joss, and �ur possession of the ground completely secured. On tbis occasion onr loss was about 3Q men, killed and wounded. I omitted'to say (hat two f rench fiigates, both loaded with flour, took their chance of escaping on (he forenoon of the 15{h. They went through (he windward passage, keeping a li(tlc from the wind to gain the shore of Gudduloupe. The leading frigate was engaged by his Majesty's ihip Intrepid. This frigate however doubled the point of Vienx Fort, was followctl by the other, and both escat^cd iuto^ Basse Tcrre. - Abouxthemiddlc of the day, yesterday (he 17th, the French Commandant, Colonel Madicr, sent a flag of truce to enter into terms. Thiy expected what wo woHid not concede, and (hey submitted to what we' wire willing to gran(. They are prisoners t)f war. I understand their number to be from seven to eight hnndred; of this number, six hundred were landed by the French squa<lr ted on shore. The ^oyal Aitillery under Brigadier-General Stchefin, have contrnucd their usual i^pirited manner. If the enemy had not capitulated yesterday, we should baveojieued a fine biiUcry of six mortars 4 and I am -certain from what happened at Martinique, our artillery woifld liave given them enough of it in one might. To Lieutenant^Coloncl Rial Ijth il.eginient, I with pleasure acknowledge the assistance J hato ?eciived from him. He (anialiaed me wilh an.o^Trto ta'ke Fort Mwelli by assault with the 15th regiment the morning of ye.'teiday during the action. J/ientenaut.Coiouel Prevost deserves equal good report.
