ExtraEl of a Letter from Plymouth, July 23. * This Day arrived here a Dutch Man of War, from � Lifbon, who gives an Account that the following French ' Ships failed from Breft, the 4th Intlant, viz. La Mars 70 75� St. Michael 7� 700 La Renown 60 600 La Parfaits 62 660 La Junette to 660 La Gallafee 52 55o La Tourneau 46 500 The above Fleet took the John and Conftant, Curling, frum Leghorn, on the 9th lull, in Lac. 48. which Ship was re-taken the 13th, by the Old Noll privateer of Liverpool, and the Dragon Privateer of Briltol, in the fame Latitude.' I.eltrr from Bafeterre in St. Chi ifophers, fune 5. WE have now certain Accounts of the Affair ot An-guilla ; on Thurfday Morning, the 2ill of lalt Month, thatIfland was attacked by two French Frigats, of 56 Guns each, three tlout Privateers, and twa lenders, all commanded by Monf. Latouche; they landed about 600 Men, and marched up into the Country by a narrow Path, the only one there was, about five Miles, without Oppofition : On each fide of this Path there are Bufhes and imall Trees growing pretty thick ; and acrofs it a Brealt-work, which can cover only twenty Men, fo as to fire without hurting one another: Here feventeen Anguillians waited to receive them, and not a Man more I affure you, by all Accounts; twenty indeed had been polled there, but three of them thought proper to retire 'to another Brealt-work, which Governor Hodge hirnfelf defended, with fifty more Men, about 100 Yards from the fint. ' One of the Seventeen, was one Richardfon, who could not be perfwaded to ftand behind the Brealt-work, but got on the Top of it to watch the Motions of the Enemy. The firft Man he fpy'd was one Rouleau, well known at St. Euftatia, who carried the French Colours, and march'd fir 11 ; Richardfon took aim at him, and killed hirn ; and immediately a young Lad among the Anguil-lians, ran and took up the Colours, and brought tnem to his Friends, who having none of their own, ftuck them up on their Breaft-work, and fought under them : This laft Circumllance is deemed by fome as being only a Joke invented by Wag\ who love to be merry, no Matter at whofe Expence. -TrTe French advanced within Piltol-fhot of the Brealt-work, and fought brifkly for about a Quarter of an Hour, but did not fo much as wound a Man, not even Richardfon, tho' feveral Boughs of Trees were broke down near him ; mean while the Anguillians were not idle, but handled their Arms fo well, that the French, who flood thick, and without Shelter, thought fit to turn their Backs, and fly to their Boats as fall as they coald. The poor Anguillians were fo fatigued and fo dry, having no fort of Liquor to drink, that they were notable to purfue the Enemy, otherwife very few of the French had efcaped, their Conlternation being fo great, that feveral of them were drown'd in going off: Twenty-nine were found dead upon the Spot, and buried immediately ; fourteen more have been found fmce among the Bufhes, four or five in a heap, who have been buried alfo, befides feven whofe Bodies were call afhore by the Sea, at the Landing-Place ; but there is fuch a noifome Stench in the Woods, near the Field of Battle, that probably feveral more are rotting above Ground. Monf. Latouche fent afhore fome Englifh Prifoners belonging to a Privateer of this Town, which the French had lately taken, and fitted out for this Expedition, with a MefTage to Governor Hodge, to fend off the French Prifoners in Exchange. ' While the Flag of Truce was coming a-fhore, the Governor imagining the Defrgn of it was to propofe Terms to him to give up the Ifland, called his People together, to know whether they would ftand by him, and they all unanimoufly affured him they would defend the Ifland to the laft Drop of their Blood : However, the French were more modeft in their Demands than he expefted ; he anfwered them civilly, that he had no Prifoners to fend them, but if he found any they fhould be well ufed, but not a Frenchman has been found alive upon Anguilla to this Day. The French loft three or four Pair of Colours, (for they had no lefs a-fhore) the Anguillians loft one Cow, three Calves and two Hogs, which the French killed and carried off with them, not a Creature befides was hurt; they carried off like- ' wife an old Copper, which was all their Booty. On * the other Hand they left behind them, a good many ' Fire-locks, befides thofe belonging to the Dead, fo that ' upon a Ballance, the Anguillians are considerable ' Gainers. ' I really look upon this Aflion to be as gallant a one, 4 as any that has happened during the War. I have taken * Pains to be well informed of it, and the honeft unaffecled 4 Simplicity of feveral Anquilliaus, who have told me the 4 Story with very little Variation, leaves me no room to * doubt of the Truth of it ; and I affure you, I have told ' it you, juft as I had it, without the leaft Embellifhment. � -By the Time the News of this Invafion was ' carried to Antigua, Commedore Le� was arrived, and ' immediately fent down the Dreadnought, the Deal-Caftle 4 and the Hind-Sloop, to Anguilla, but it was to late, 4 the French Veflels were gone, and we hav.e,fince heard of their being arrived in Guardaloupe. I have forgot to tell you, that towards the latter End of * the Engagement, the Negroes were very ufeful in purfu- * ing the Enemy. Some Letters from Turin fay, that as foon. as the Re. pubiick of Genoa had made publick her Refolution to fide with the Crowns of France and Spain, the Britifh Conful was fent for by the Senate, who imparted the faid Refolution to him, adding, that notwithftanding the Neceflity they were under to take fuch a Step, nothing fhould be wanting on their Part to keep up a good Harmony between Great-Britain and the Republick, and that any Englifh Men of War, that came into the Harbour of Genoa, or any other Ports of the Republick, in an amicable Manner, fhould be furmihed with whatever Rcfrefhments or Provifions they might want, as heretofore. Yefterday feveral Veffels with Powder, Ball, and other Stores aif YVar, were fent from theTowrr to re-inforce the Garrifonsof Sheernefs, Portfmou:h, and Plymouth. All the Merchant Ships that failed under Convoy of Commodore Leigh, in the Suffolk, are fafely arrived at Barhadots. Yefterday two Waggon Load of Silver was br-nght to the Bank, under a Guard of Seimen, belonging to the Rofe Man of War, lately arrived in the Downs.
