Description
The British galleys have joined their fleet, probably to pass through Hog Island creek, to interrupt communication at Lempriere; suggests that Crawley be reinforced and stationed at the creek, and that another galley be made ready for its defense; the horses before mentioned are so reduced as to be unfit for service; supposes Gen. Scott will receive orders as to a further collection to be made at that post.
