Tying on the Communication: However, they m�lc two cuts, which were com pies ted before it was light.  $y this Time the befieged difcovered the Enemy, arid renewed their fire apon them, but not with vigour todejtroy rhe Works the French had ficifhed. )0n the isth the befieged threw a Reinforcement into the Cover'd Way, which was perr ceived by the Enemy, and was therefore of no Advantage. At 10 o*Clcck the time Night the Fiencb formed the Attack, with fix Companies of Grenadiers, and fix Piquets.   Upon rhe advance of thele -the Detachment trom the Garrifpn, after ^tolerable Rcfifta nee, retreated to a kind of Redoubt, from whence the befieged demanded to Capitulate j,but *ere anfwered by the other party^ that they muft look for 00 better Terms than lurrendeffag P/i-foners of War. Upon this a party of the *Garrifop withdrew precipitately to Fort Croix.   All this Time the French General was on the left of the River (theSThcld)obterved every thing that paffed on the Right, with attention, and immediately erahark'd from Fort Dnele ten Compnies of Grenadiers and four Piquets, who landed between Liito and Croix, dire  and the fmall number of Troops to refill the Powek of the Enemy. * This muft-fe-mfant of Fort Lillo,-rohich mull be underftood to furrender about this Time.
