They arrived here Saturday morning and met Capt. Gambier and [Thomas] Pownall; they have dined at Mr. Alexander's; this afternoon all the ladies and gentlemen of the town go on board the Sphinx for a ball; [John] Penn is impatient to proceed; they have explained the defeat to Pownall as an accident, and not the result of negligence and stupidity, as was first supposed.
