On the fcth fail'd, to join the Convoy, the Eftwithe', Smith, from Antigua, fyr London. ihs follvming h the French Account of the late Defcent on the Coajtof Bntanj, pgbjt/bed at Paris. � On the 29th of September a Fleet of 56 Ships, one  tliird of which feemed to be of great Force, were per-  ceived from Port Louis. They came by the Weft Point 1 of the Ifle-of Grouais, and towards Evening caft Anchor �in the Bay pfPolduc. The Appearance of fo numerous 1 a Fleet of the Enemy, with Troops on board, did net  fail of cauiing a great Flight ia thofc Parts, efoeriaUy as  the Guard Coaft Militia had been unhappily difchargftl  the 15th of the fame Month. If the EngiWh had landed the following Mgbt, nothing could have hinder'd them from Htfrching^cltrtcTTy to L'Orient, aad-farprixing tfcat City, which feenu to have been the Object, of their Ex-ptdition : But they did not make their Defcent tifl the ill of Odober, about 4. in the Afternoon, when they landed 7000 Men.  Advantage was taken of this Interval, as much as the Time would permit, to get in a better State, of Defence. Twothoufand' of ths Gua*d-Coaft Militia were immediately afTembled.aud fupported by 300 of the Regiments of L'iiopital and Eudicourt. Thefe Troops not being fuffkient to oppofe the Defcent of the Englifh, the latter landed without Oppofiiion, and with fo much the"more Facility as they had erected fome Bitteries on the Shore, which kept a centinual and brifk Fire ; without doing much Damage however, one Man only being killed on our Side.  The Enemy fpent the following Night in the fmall Parifli Guides. They carried off all the Cattle they could find there, and fired feveral Cottages. The 2d they came to Plemur, which is but half a League diftant from L'Orient, and thereeftablilhed their General Quarters. ' During this March, the neceffary Meafures.were taken for rendering*the Place more-defensible. The Nobility and Gentry mounted on Horfeback ; the Town Militia took Arms; and fuch a Number of Volunteers threw themfclves into L'Orient, that the greateft Part of them were obliged to be lent back, after the moft ufeful had been fele&ed. The Enemy intended to have ventured a Paflage with their Ships under the Cannon of Port-Louis, in order to attack L'Orient by Sea and Land at the fame Time: Butthey could not execute this .Scheme, on Account of the Precaution that had been taken during this Time to hinder them. - � - ' The 3d General -Sinclair caufed the City to be fum-raened to furrender, and pay him two Millions Contribution ; adding, that the Guard-Ccufts and Regular Troops �uft be - Prisoners of War, and -that the City mould be piBaged for the Space of four Hours. Thefe Propofals haying been rejeSed, the Enemy began on .the 4th to fire upon the Place, which they continued the 5th and 6th: but the Fire of theGarrilon was the laft Day much fuperior to theirs, by the federal Batteries that had been ere&cd. * Oo the 7th towards Evening, the Eaglifh Fire ha\ing \ * cesfed all at once, the Garrifon refolved to fally out in � Order of Battle, to reconnoitre the Enemy's Camp, and ' attack them: But they had abandoned it. Our People ' foued 4 Pieces of Camion, Eleven-pounder?, a Mortar ' of 9 Inches Diameter, a Furnace, for red-hot Balls, a,, * Bombardier, with feveraJ Ball? ana! Fire-pots. . ' The 8th and 9th the EngHlh reimbarked without any * Obftacle : The 10th they quitted 1 he Height of L'Orient, < and the next Day 5 2 of their Ships coafted along from 1 Sr. Gt'ldas de Rhuis to Qoiberoo, where they made a ' frefli Defcent: But the 28th they again rcimbar&d, and ' fince thejjcjth no Englifh Ship has been feen on the Coalt * of Britany. As the Fleet failed towards the South, its ' fuppqfcd they have a Defign to attempt fomething upon * the Coafts of PoifijJu, ^aintaog^, ox dfewhere i But we ' are every where aron the Guard. * During this Expedition the Englifh cannonaded the ' Iiland of Groaais; but without Succefs. They fuc-' ceeded better at Hcdic and Houat, two fmall barren ' Iflands, inhabited"only by Fifhermen. They got Poffef-' fion of two Forts, guarded by 25 Men each, who were ' made Prifoners of War ; but the Englifh afterwards put ' them on Shore. * The Lofs of the Enemy in this Expedition confifts of ' 2 or 30C1 Men, who were cut in Pieces by the Peafants as ' they went a maroding. They alfo loft fbme Men before ' L'Orient; bu;the Number is not known.' LONDON. The Caftle of Savona continues to be blocked up by 2poo Piedraontefe, without any Difpofitions being made for attacking it in Form; the true Motive of which is unknown. Some Letters mention a Treaty as being in great For-wardnefs between the Courts ofFraoce and Saxony, whereby the latter is to furnim the former 20,000 Men. They add, that the Courts of Cologne, Munich and Manhcim, will be invited to accede to it. By a Letter from an Englifh Ship at Shilo, a Harbour in the Weft of the Naze in Norway, weJiave an Account, that a Hoy belonging to Jutland, was arrived there, having on board three Scotch Gentlemen, who came from the North of Scotland, where they hir'd the Veffel to carry thti� to Gottenburgh, from whence they intended for Stockholm.--One of them is very Old, and the other ;wjo Young. They are foil of Money, and feem to be Perfonsof Confequence in the late R^bemori. The Fleet of Merchant Ships for Portugal failed from Plymouth the 5th Inftant, under Convoy of the Tilbury, and three other Ships cf War. And we are affur'd, that Admiral Anfon, who had waited for fome Ships to join htm, was to fail on Saturday Morning.
