John Hamilton, Sir Chu. Molloy, Robert Erikine, Cha. Catford, Edw. Spragge. Who were all duly fworn according to Act of Parliament. TH E Evidence thoroughly cenfider'd, it appear'd, That Vice-Admiral Leflotk ufed his utmoft endeavours to form the Lines, but could not, unlets the reft of the Fleet had bore down to him. .---That if his Majefty's Fleet was brought into great Danger, as is aflerted in the Charge, by bringing to as they did ; the Caufe neither did, or could arife from the inferior Officer. -That the Night being clear, and the Ships t� be feen, if the Admiral had thought the Vice-Admiral too far to Windward, and out of his Station, be might have fent Orders to join him nearer, or have fuperfeded him, and not have trulted his Judgment or Intxegrity the next Day in the Engagement j but not having fent fuch Orders, it is to be preiumed, he did not think nim out of his Station, or Difobedient to Command. --That the Vice-Admiral's Divifion was not brought to in Diforder, but, the molt regularly formed of any Divifion in the Fleet j his Ships clear, in the Poiture of Fight, and formed in Line of Battle, and he made and repeated tile Signal for their fo doing, as well as every other made that Day. -That if the Vice-Admiral had made Sail in the Night without Orders, it would have been an unjuitifiable Breach of Difcipline. , --That he made Sail at Day-break, [Feb. 11.) and nfrd his utmoft Endeavours to ?et into his Station and clofe the Center, and kept all the Sail he could, till the Signal in the Evening to leave off Chace ; but that it was im-poffible for him to clofe Line in that Time. --That the Admiral, by bearing down upon the Rear-Divifion of the Enemy's Fleet, excluded the Vice-Admiral from any Part of the Engagement; for if he could "have come up, there would have been but one Enemy's Ship for him and his Whole Divifion to Engage. --That as no Signal was made for him to Chace with his Divifion, he could not, without Breach of Duty, have Chaced ; nor if he had had fuchOrder, have come up with the four Ships of the Enemy mentioned in the Charge, before they could come up with their Admiral,., as they Sail'd fo much better than the Neptune. wanted no Affiftance } they both being equal to the Real and Hercules. --That the Vice-Admiral could not without breaking the Order of Battle, fend to their Relief any Ships othis Divifion, there being between it and the Marlborough four Ships of the Admiral's Divifion which might have gone to her Afliftance. � ��' That the notorious Breaches of Doty which the Vice-Admiral has in general Terms been. accus'd kof, have not been made appear to the Court; nor that the Vice-Admiral was a Principal, or any part of the Caufe cf the MKcarriage of his Majefty's Fleet in 'the Mediterranean i the bringing on of the general Engagement, according to Art. XIX. of the Fighting Inftruftions, and the making proper Difpofitions with the Fleet in the Morning, to lead down with the greateft Advantage upon the Enemy, not depending upon him. ' If the-Vice-Admiral's whok Divifion had been abfd-lutely away, and the four Sternmoft Ships of the Enemy, (who were of no more Service in the Engagement to the Enemy, than the Vice-Admiral's Divifion was to his Majefty's Fleet) had alfo been excluded, the-reft of his Majefty's Fleet would have ftili remain'd fuperror to the reihof the combin'd Fleet. * The1 Vice-Admiral continu'd in Command during the whole Month of Fnbruary, and was diftinguifh'd with a-particular Mark of Truft and Confidence the Day after 9 A D V E RTISEMENTS are taken in tor this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffbe-House, m Lombard-Street. ;
