Almiralty Office, July 22. Copy of a Letter from Admiral the Earl of St. Vincent, K. B. to Evan Ne. pean, E.; dated on board the Ville de Paris, at Sea, the 14th of July.

Sir, I HEREWITH transmit, for the information of the Lords Commillioners of the Admiralty, a letter with its several enclosures, which I have received from Rear-admiral Sir John Borlase Warren, giving an ac


count of an attack made by the boats of his Majesty's lips under his oro cers, on a convoy near ihe island of Neirmoutier, of which I highly approve, and of the spirited conduct shown on the whole occasion.

I am, Sir, &c.


My Lord,

Renozon, Bourneuf Bay, July 2. I BEG leave to inform your Lordship, that, having received informa. tion that a fhip of war with a large convoy of the enemy were lying within the island of Noirmoutier, which had assembled there from Sable d'Olonne, destined for Brest, I judged the destruction thereof might be of great confequence to his Majesty's service; I anchored therefore with his Majesty's Thips named in the margin * on the ist instant, in the Bay of Bourneuf, and directed the boats of the squadron to follow Captain Martin's orders for their farther proceedings, and I take the liberty of referring your Lord ship to the enclosed letter for a particular account of the transactions on the ist and 2d instant. .. Although owing to an accident a part of the men have been made prisoners, and four wounded in their retreat upon this occafion, yet, from the loss the enemy has sustained, I hope the enterprise wili meet your Lordship's approbation, as well as the gallantry and presence of mind displayed by Lieutenant Burke upon the above critical service, with the zeal and bravery of the several officers and men employed under him., and I trust will recommend them to your Lordship’s notice and protection. I have the honour to remain, &c.


Fisgard, at Anchor in Bourneuf Bay, July 2. I BEG to inform you, the boats of the ships named in the margin + were formed into three divisions yesterday evening, under the directions of Lieutenant Burke, to attack the armed vessels and convoy lying within the sands in Bourneuf Bay, moored in a strong position of defence, and under the protection of fix heavy batteries at the south-east part of Noirmou. tier, besides fianking guns on every projecting point. At twelve o'clock, after much resistance and considerable loss on the part of the enemy, we had possession of La Terese, four armed vessels, and filteen fail of merchantmen, the whole of which were burnt on finding it impossible to bring them out; and this essential service would have been accomplished in the most satisfactory manner, if the boats, in returning, could have found a passage over the fand-banks; but unfortunately they took the ground, and in less than ten minutes were perfectly dry, at the same time exposed to a continual fire from the forts and 400 French soldiers formed in the rear; but, in opposition to this, they determined to attack other vessels of the enemy, and secure one sufficiently large to receive all the party, which they did; and with great intrepidity, exertion, and strength, drew her upwards of two miles over the sands, until they were up to their necks in water, before she would float; but I am sorry to add, that four officers and 88 of the valuable men employed in this glorious enterprise are prisoners, though from every report there are only a few wounded. I fincerely congratulate you on having succeeded with so little loss in this important service, all the veffels being laden with corn and valuable cargoes, much wanted for the fleets in Brest; and I am sure you will be highly gratified with the gallantry and uncommon perseverance manifelted by the officers and men upon this occasion.
