This � mult indeed be looked upon as a very extraordinary � Piece of News, but it feems the Truth of it can be hardly * doubted. If the King of Pruffia defigns to unite the one Xeague of him, fo that an Account of an Action was toj&e expected every Day. This Day the feveral Admirals, Commodores, and Captains of Flag Ships, are to meet, purfuant to Adjournment, at the Board-Roem in the Navy Office, where the Mafter-Builders of his Majefty's Yards ; and alfo many Builders in the private Yards, are ordered to attend, on an Examination into the Manner of Building his Majefty's Ships of War, purfuant to Orders from the Lords of the Admiralty.

Extra�l of a Letter from on board the Urfula, at Oftend, dated June 24. Dear friend, f 1 doubt not you will be glad to hear a faithful Account of our Engagement off this jPlace, as its much talk'd. of in this and other Piaces, arid allowed by all, to be as brave an Action as has beeri done for many Years; and the Commander of one of the Privateers, (now our Prifo-ner) who was in the late Wars, and is efteem'd a very brave Man, fays, that he never hadfo hot a Morning's Work.-The Bridgwater, of 20 Guns, Lord George Graham Commander ; the Sheernefs, of 20 Guns, Capt. Gordon; and, our Ship, the Urmia, of 16 Guns, Lieutenant Fergufon Commander, anchor'd about 5 Leagues diftant from Oftend, on Saturday lafl ;v having an Account a few Days before of three Dunkirk Privateers to the Northward, that had taken feven Merchantmen :- A little before Night-fall we faw ten Sail, that kept clofe 1 to this Shore ; as foon as it was dark we weigh'd, and 1 made fail to meet them ; and a few. Minutes before 2 in ( the Morning the Sheernefs got into the Middle of them ; the French fir'd the firft Shot, and the Sheernefs retum'd ' a whole Broadfide, and the Engagement began: The ' Privateers were the Royal, and Dutchefs de Penthievre, ' of 26 Guns each, Nine and Six Pounders, and a French ' Dogger of 16 Guns ; and three Merchantmen, of 20 ' Guns each : The Bridgwater was fo far to Leeward, and ' we fo far behind, that the Sheernefs bore the Fire of the ' fix Ships for near an Hour and half, before the Bridg- * water could come to clofe Engagement; and we were ' almoft as foon as fhe : Then we all fir'd as faft as Guns ' could be charg'd ; the Bridgwater, was engag'd with two ' Privateers, the Sheernefs with the other, and we with ' the Merchantmen : We drove the faid Ships afhore, and ' made them ftrike , the Sheernefs boarded the Privateer, ' and drove her afhore ; and the Bridgwater, drove afhore ' the other two, and took them ; fo that none got away ' but the Dogger, and fhe by drawing fo little Water. ' We fought almotl five Hours, and yet had but one Man ' kill'd, (in the Main-Top of the Sheernefs) and a few ' wounded ; the French had 80 kill'd, 36 of whom vtfas ' on board one Ship. We have fent into Oitend 400 Pri-' foners; but the Captains and Officers are on board my ' Lord : The French Ships are terribly maul'd, and no ' wonder, fince we, who came up lall, fir'd off our Lar-' board-fide 246 Shot, befides Small Arms, Swivels, and ' Mufquetoons. The Bridgwater and Sheernefs had only ' 166 Men each, and we but 90. My Heart grieved to ' fee the Sheernefs fo long without Help ; bot fure no Peo-' pie could behave better than all our Crews, for from the ' biggeft Man to the fmalleft Boy Fear feem'd a Stranger ' to them ; nor can there be braver Men than our Com-' manders. We are all in high Spirits; but when we � fhall leave this Place is no\known. I am, &c. Yefterday the Norwich Man of War, of 54 Guns, was launch'd at Blackwall.
