Tltf troops were formed across ll�r isthmus|ip.irle WHS ex[)ecle(l to afford jjood cover for the men, and to serve as a tiepot for stores previous to the erection of the batterie�. The whole ot thvcr lie bunk ahove ile^ctibed, close untler Uic v/�li,, of the fort, lollowed by the pickets under Mii)-ir iVIo'.e*-wnrtli, who took post at the sainl l> n-.k, winUi thtt European light troops wete ckiiini-liui;; in Irunt.-. The enemy k*-pt up a sharp lire of ninaketry and cannon during these movemetiis ; anfl i regret lo add, that Major Moleswoitli, u ga!:,iiil a^.d Zr-alous (.nicer, wus killed by a '�rtiioon >liot at ihe head of the pickets, Lieut. Siepney, o.I'lheCSib, was wounded oti this occasion. TJie tronp'i, hov-ev^r, inaiiitained their position, dnrin-j the diy, and in the night effected a loilgnifnt wiiliiu 300 yard:, of the souihernmiisl tower, and t reeled abal-lery for four guns, together with a niortur battery on the riijht, and a trench of cnramunication Jgr the protection of the covering patty. The weather having; become' raiher unfuvonr-able-for the diseinbarkution of the stores required for the siege, it was with considerable difficoUy that this primary object was effecieil; but every obstacle was turm.ouiiT'ed by the zeal and indelu-ligable exertions of the navy, and on the mortiing of the Gil) we were enableti lo open three 18-poundert on the fort; a couple of howitzers and 6-potin(ler3 were also placed in the battery oa the right, which pUyed on the ilt-fenres of the towers, and nearly silenced the eiietnj's ft'e. The Liverpool, iluriiig these operations, warped in as close to the shore as her draught of waier would [rer-mii, and opened her guns on,the Imv.i, which iiiunt have creaietl ronsiderahie alarm in the gairisou, but she was unfo'tunately at too great a distance to produce aiiy decided effect. The enemy, who duiiig tl'.e whole of onr progress exhibited a cniisiderabl^ degree of resolulioii' tu wiilistatidng, and mgentjiiy in countfracling our attacks, sallied furlh at eight o'clock this evening along the whnle front of car enfencliments, crept close up Ii> the iiiortar buttery without being perceived, and entered it ovet the parapet, after spearing . the advanced sentries. The party'which occupied it was obliged to retire, but being iinniedialely reinforced, diargeti the assailants, who were driven out of the bnllery with cousideruble loss. The attack on the left was repelled iiisiatitaiieously by thi- spirited resistance of the covering party, under Majoi- Warren, who distinguished hiiiiself much on this occasion by 'his coolness and gallantry. The enemy repeated attacks towa;d� moining. but was viguruu.sly re-pul�ed. During the 7ih eiery exertion wns made to land und bring up the retuaining guns �tid/nurturi, which whs uccoiiipli.�ihed during the night, after incessant labours, by the sailors, assisted by working parties from the troops, and ihoie of hit fjighiies* the Imaum, who cheerfully volunteered their services. They were immediately placed In buttery, together with two 34-pounders, which were landrii from Ihe Lreerpaal, and in the morning the whole uf uvir ordnance apeneiLon the fort, and fired winh scarcely any intermission till sun-set, when the breach on the curliiin was reported uearly practicable and the towert almost untenable. 'Immediate arrangements were made for the assault, and the troops ordered to move down to tiic trenches at day-break the next morning. The bombjrdcaent cnntinueil during the uight, aud the batteries having recommenced their fire before day-light, completed the breaches by eight o'clock. Tlie aceuinpiinyiiig orders will explain'to hit Excellency the dispositions of ultack, ai well as the ineasurea taken to guard against the possibility pf a f'lilure,' in the event of the enemy dv-fending himself as desperately as might have been expected from his previous defence. . Theie pre-cauliont, however, were unnecetsHry ; the-pafSy moved foFward about eist'i- o'clock, and entrreU thtrfurt through the breaclies without firing a shot: and itioou appeared thai the enemy had eyavn^iited the place. The town was taken postettion of,.und fiiuud almolt entirety deserted, ouly 18 or 20 inet\, autl a few womeit, retnaiitit.ig in their houtes'.
