Copy of a Letter from Mr. Joshua Hocquard, Commander of the Hazard pri-
vate Ship of War, to Evan Nepean, Esq., dated at Jersey, the 17th
July.

Sir,
I BEG leave to acquaint you, for the information of my Lords Como
missioners of the Admiralty, that on my return from a cruise in the cutter
Hazard, private letter of marque, fron Jersey, under my command, on
the morning of the 4th instant, at half past three A. M. the westwardmos
point of Guernsey bearing S. E. by E. four or five miles, we fell in with,
and, after a chase of an hour, captured the Ajax French lugger privateer,

from St. Maloes, mounting four carriage brass guns, and 23 men; failed the night before from Bocha, and had not taken any thing,

I have the honour to be, Sir, &c.

Copy of a Letter from Captain Ferris, of his Majesty's Ship Ruby, to Evan

Nepean, Esq.; dated off the Start, July 30. Sir, I BEG leave to acquaint you, for the information of their Lordships, that being on my paffage from St. Helena to England, at five A. M. on Sunday the 13th instant, in lat. 45 deg. north, and long. 29 deg. west, I observed a strange fail to windward, which, by her motions, appeared to be an enemy's cruiser; I therefore thought it right to make all poffible fail to reconnoiţre her.

Night coming on before I could well discover what she was, I shortened fail for the convoy; and at daylight, in the morning of the 14th (it having been calm during the greatest part of the night), I saw the same ship about three miles ahead, who, upon my making sail in chase, and firing several shot, showed national colours.

Light winds having prevailed during the whole of the day, she was enabled, by her sweeps, to keep just without gun-fhot; but towards evening, a breeze springing up in our favour, I gained on her fast, and, at one A. M. on Tuesday the 15th, took possession of her.

She proves to be La Fortune privateer, of Bourdeaux, a very fine ship, mounting 16 eight-pounders, four long twelves, and two ; 6-pound carronades, all brass; her complement 202 men; but had on board when taken only 188, the rest having been sent on board the Fame brig, from Sierra Leone, bound to London, the only capture she had made in a cruise of one month from Bourdeaux.

I beg leave to add, that the appears to meto be a ship well calculated for his Majesty's service, being remarkably strong built, coppered and copper fastened, and a very exceilent failer: the present is only the second cruise since she was built.

I am, &c.

SOL. FERRIS.

Admiralty Office, August 9. Copy of a Letter from the Earl of St. Vincent, K. B. Admiral of the White,

&c. to Evan Nepean, Esq. ; dated on board kis Majesty's Ship Royal George, at Sea, the 4th infiant.

Sir, I DID not think the enterprise of Sir Edward Hamilton, or of Captain Campbell, could have been rivallei, until I read the enclosed letter from Sir Edward Pellew, relating the desperate service performed by aćting Lieutenant Coghlan, of the Viper cutter, on the 29th July, which has filled me with pride and admiration; and although the circumstance of his not having completed his time in his Majesty's navy o eraies at present against his receiving the reward he is most ambitious of obtaining, I am persuaded the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty will do all in F 2
