Description
Lord Howe's fleet has returned to New York, and a fleet of transports has come from the eastward, supposed to contain Gen. Gray's force returning from a successful sweep of cattle at Martha's Vineyard; indications seem to point to a West India voyage rather than to any offensive operations here; the sickly condition of Byron's crews, and other reasons, make an expedition against the Squadron and Boston improbable; the French West Indies are well garrisoned and provisioned; the British are neither.
