The French Priioners taken on bond the Six Ships by Admiral H^-wke, which confiUs of 3864 Men, are ordered to LandWown, Portfmouth, Southampton, and Piymou'h Caftles, till an Ex-chia%e can be made by Cartel.

You hive, no doubt, long before now heard of this f cond Engigemenc with the French Fleet, confilting of" nine Sail of the Line, and i5� Merchantmen. On the 14th Iwftant at Diy break we Law them, and chafed them til) half an Hour pjft Eleven; then our headmoft Ships began to engjge the French Admiral, who wich fevrn Sail more brought too to engage us. About Twelve we came up with the Rear of the Enemy, run br two or three Siil of them, received each of their Fires, an^ returned them again. The fourth Ship in the French Line beiug the Sovereign, we being lefs than Piftol-fhot,engaged her for about three Quarters of an Hour, when Hie ffruck. Thenexc Slip to her bring the French Admiral of 80 Guns, we coul I not come nigh enough to engage* io p.(Ted on rhe Ship a head of her, and e^s^'ed her an Hour and three Quarters, when Liie aiio ftrucK: Then made Sail to the Ttrrible of 74 Guns, (which I have been on board of Hn e) 1 er we tought for about an Hour, when flu iik-wilc ftruck tu us. I could wjfh all oar ships done tr.eir Duty as well; we mig^it thea pcrh psu :-been able to give a better Account of Monfie ;i i but on the contrary, we with fourteen Sail i* and as to the Nature of theff Schemes, we are told that when the Dyet is once rilen, we fhall be no longer leic in the Dark. We hear from Kenfington, that when Captain Moore of the Devonfliirc was introduced to his Ma/efly, he was received with great Marks oiRel-peft- and that the Captain told his Majetty the par--ticulars of the Aclion, with great Cotcpotuie �nd Politenets; particularly, that though he had the Honour to Command one ot the bal Ships in his Wajefly's Navy, yet fhe appeared but a fmall Vef� fcl in Companion to the Neptune > that the Gunners were tuch good Markfmcn, that th'ey lodged near twenty lnot in his Ship, and leveral in his Mails of 30 and 40 Poundersiit near ha f aMiie dif-tance, but as it was the Cuttom of theEngiilh to come to clole Quarters as fuonas poflihle, and as they broke their Line, we got in between then, anU raked them tore and aft, which lo put them intoContufion, that they could not bring their Guns to bear, which contributed greatly to our Victory. We are informed tttat a large parcel of their Orders and Inftrudions were taken up at Sea, nothavingbatlaft enough to fink them, and bi Ought to the Earl ot Cbefteifield, and among che Men ot War taken, three of them are quite new Ships, and that one of ttiers bad 309 Men dead on her DcCk when taken.

The French Men ot War then imaae-diatc ly drew into an aunw a tl Line of Bamea-head, whi than a Quner ot an Hour altered it to C^ace, and engage. It now was about n o'Ulo.k , iho' I �m pr tty Certain we, with lome of the Sh ps above mentioned, could have w eathered the Enemy. Durrpg this Interval, the Lion, beiring mote away than us, begin the Fight, though the French mcU Hrft j tms was a quarter betore 11.
