A paragraph in your last Saturday’s Paper, seem
Messrs. Printers,
to insinuate, thata neglect on the part of the Owners
of the schooner Eagle, for not having sufficiency of
ballast on board, was the occasion of that unfortunate
and melancholy accident, her being upset; I dont
know who so ofliciously gave you such incorrect
information, so far, from not being in proper ballast,
from, that double the quantity, that vessels of her
size ever carry in these colony, was on board at the
(ime the accident happened, the vessel likewise un-
der easy sail, it was not the wind, but the sea, that
was the occasion,—It is particularly recommended
to Travellers, in her on a journey, to shape thete
course to their destined port, as nearas possible, had
(his maxim been attended too, the public would not
have to lament the loss of five valuable Members of
Society, nor the Proprictors of the schooner Lagle,
the loss of so fine a vessel.

KEITIT, Admiral.
His Mujesty’s ship Eurotasy Plymouth Sound,
March 1, 1814.
Ny Lonp,—lI have the honor to inform your Lordship,
that his Majesty’sship under my command, parted com.
pany from the Rippoon on Nonday night, the 2Ist alt.
in chace ofa vessel which proved to beaSwedish merchane
ship, and on I*riday the 25th, in endeavouring to rejoin
the Rippoon, being then in latitude 47.40. north and long,
9.30. west, we perceived a sail upou the lee beam, to which
ve gave chace. We svon discovered her to be an enemy’s
frigate, and that she was endeavouring to out maneuvre
us in bringing her to action ; but having much advantage
in sailing, (although the wind had unfortunately died
away) we were enabled ot about five o’clock to pas under
her stern, hail her, and commence close action,
When receiving her broadside and passing to her bow,
our mizen mast was shot away. I then ordered the helm
to be put down to Jay her aboard, but the wreck of our
mizen mast lying on our quarter, prevented this desirable
obiect from being accomplished.
‘he enemy just passed clear of us, and both officers and
men of the Kurotas renewed the action with the most de.
termined bravery and resolution, while the enemy returned
our fire in a warm and gallant manner. We succeeded ia
raking her again, ana then lay broadside to broadside ; at
6. 20. our main mast fell by the hoard, the enemy’s mizem
mast falling at the same time; at 6. 50, our foremast fell,
and theenemy’s main mast almost immediately afterwards
At ten minutes after seven she slackened her fire, but
having her foremast standing, she succecded with her fore
sail in getting out of range. During the whele of tho ace
View original tion we kept up a heavy and well-direcied fire; nor do IJ
know which most to ad: ire, the seamenat the great guns,
or the marines with their small arms, they vying with cach
other who should most annoy the enemy.
I was at this time so much exhausted by the loss of
blood, from wounds [ had received in the carly part of the
action from a grape shot, that I found it impossible for
me to remain any longer upon deck. I was therefore un-.
der the painful necessity of desiring Juieatepant Smith
(First Lieutenant) to take the command of the quarter
deck, and to clear the wreck of the fore mast and main
mast, weich then lay nearly fore and aft the deck, and
to make sail after the enemy ; but, at the same time,
had the satisfaction of reflicting that I had left the com-
mand in the hands of a inost active and zealous officer.
We kept sight of the enemy during the night by means
of boat sails and jigger on the ensign staff; and before
twelve o'clock the ucaxt day Licutenant Smith reported to
me that, by the great exertions of every officer and man,
jury courses, topsails, staysails, and spankar, were set in
chace of the enemy, who had even cleared away his wreck,
and that we were coming up with her very fast, going at
the rate of six and ahalf knots ; that the decks were per-
fectly clear ; and that the ofiicers and men were as ¢agel
to renew the action as they were to commence it; but, to
the great mortification of every one on board, we percely.-
ed two sails on the lee bow, which proved to be the
Dryad and Achate, and they having cr d the enemy
(we only four or five miles distant) before we could
up to her, deprivcd us of the eratification of having her
colours hauled down to us.
The enemy’s frigate | roved to be the Clorinde, Capt,
Dennis Legard, mounting 4! guns with 4 brass swivels 1
each top, and a complement of 360 men.
It is with sincere rezect I have to state that our loss
considerable, having 20 killed and 40 wounded ; and I
most sincercly lamceut the loss 3 fine young midshipmen ,
two of whom had served the whole of their (ime with me,
and who all protnised to be ornaments to the service.
Among the wounded is Lientenant Fooid, of the Royal
hi «tk
Marines, who received’ a grap shot joins thigh, while
A >
gallantly heading his party.
L learn from Mousicur Gerrard, one of the French
officers, that they calculate their loss on board the Clorinde
at 120 mene It is therefore unnecessary for ine to parti.
cularize the exertions of cv ry dndivid Mou 1] 1 ¢his hi
or the promptness with which crery order was put i
execution by so youns a siip com any 5 bat banast be.
leave to mention the able assistaice which £ received fro
Lieut. Smith, Grave-, Randol) hy, and Boca, Mr.
Beadnell, the Master, and Licut. Foord and Connell, oJ

shewn by Mr. Thomas Covhke Jones, Surgeon, ia tae

The following Decl ridion appear ty O}} the 17th,
at Middlefart, on the Islam of Funen.
CRBy the care of the Danish Goverument, the war which
already, for fifteen years, had devastated burope, had not
disturbed the repose of the Danish nation 3: when the vin
for a moment, saw himself under the necessity of using de-
fensive mcaus, partly for the protection of his subjects’
commerce, and partly for the security of his provinces
bordering on Germany.
‘The attack made by the English on his Majesty’s cas
pital, and carrying ofl the Danish fleet, in the year 1807,
put an end to the happy tranquillity which his Majesty
had, until then, been enabled to preserve for his subjects.
The Danish States, at that time, had the same common
enemy with France, and the consequence was, that an al-
liance was sought and concluded with that power. The
emperor, openly and directly, promiscd men and money ;
and a numerous army immediately moved into the provin-
ces belonging to his Majesty the King. It was axzreed
that the expence of its support should be defrayed by the
French Government, and this amounted to a sum of se-
veral millions of six-dollars. Without undertaking any
thing, however, this army remained a burthen longer than
the Danish Govergment thought requisite. Ihe expence

of its support remained unpaid, and the request of Dene
mark on this point, were equally fruitless, as those, cone
cerning the announced requisitions in money. The situ.
ation of a state whose resources were already diminished
by the naval war, and by these naval disbursements, be-
came totally exhausted, again sullcred a most prejudicial
influence from the shutting of the Contivental ports,
which was represented as one of the means for obtaining
a general peace. The annexation of the Hanse Towns and
contiguous provinces to the French Empire, became af-
(erwards a most heavy burthen, with regard to the com.
mercial intercourse with Germany. Its effects extended
even to literary connections. Earnest professions which
were frequently renewed, had given hopes, that these ob«
stacles which were so directly contrary tu the good andere
standing in which his Majesty contributed all in his power
(o remain with the French Government would have been
removed, but these hopes always remained unfulfilled.
Whilst the French army was retreating in the winter be
tween 18t2and 13, the Imperial troops, which, according
toa particular agreement, were to have remained for the
protection of tie frontiers of [olstein, were drawn away.
As the frcnch Government had at the same time declared
