One Ship was laid acrofs the Channel in the Harbour's Mouth, ready to fink, to prevent their Entring, with a Chain from the Caftle to her Stern, and another from her Head to the Main, where were three Fafcine Batteries, which extended a considerable Length, and lately made. - On a W Point, called Ponta Brava, were two other new Fafcine Batteries/ one of 12 Guns, the other of Seven ; but perceiving they were ill defigned, and might eafily be flanked, he thought it would be no difficult Matter to render himfelf Mailer of them : And that if the Attempt, focceeded, the Guns of both might be. made Ufe of againft the Caftle : According it was agreed, at a General Confutation held next Morning, to fend in two Ships in the Afternoon, to cannonade thofe Batteries, and so land theVoluntiers, with about 400 Seamen, 'the Detachment, of Dalzell's Regiment, and all the Marines, to take Pof-feffioo, after the Ships had filenced them ; their Retreat being fecurely guarded by his Majefty's Ship the Affiftance, which lay within Piftol-fhot of the Shore.

On the 28th, at a General Cohfultation, it was agreed, that the Squadron was no longer in a Condition to andertake any Enterprize againft the Enemy ; upon which the Commodore fent away the Station Ships to their refpedtive Stations. Before he left the Coaft, he agreed to an Exchange of Prifoners with the Governor of Porto Cavallo: and the Officer who was appointed by the.
