Tiier Implacable and Melpomene hating stood into the Gulph of Narva, captured nine sail of vis-sels, laden with limber, spars, and cordage, belonging to the. (Cmpcror of Russia, and which I doubt nut will prove a valuable acquisition tu our own dock-yards. The boats of the slilps nndur fhaT'active and valuable officer Lieutenant Hawkey (of whose enterprising spirit I had c;;casiou to speak so highly when oft Danzic) liave looked inio every creek alone the south coast of the Gulph, wiihout finding liny vessels whatever, and he is now on the op-po>ite with the sanre view, F.

Since writing (he above, Lieutenant Ilaw. key has returned with three vessels, captured by thti boats of the Implacable, Melpomene, and Pro> ihetheus tinder his cOromdnt], and he reports eight sail of giMi-boats protecting stjmi! ships in shore, ami is very desirous of attacking them, which shall be done, if there is a reasonable hope of success. .
