Description
Nothing further is known of D'Estaign's success; the sudden departure of the French ships will probably disconcert the operations against Arnold; 1,500 men from the main army passed by, the preceding Thursday, on their way to Virginia under La Fayette; the French ships which were in the Bay reached New Port the 24th ult.; they took ten prizes; on their return the Romulus fell into their hands; the British ship America, that was obliged by the storm to put to sea from Gardiner's bay, has returned to that post.
