The protracted defence of Lieutenant James Orrock, in command of the Adventure, a small brig tender mounting six 3-pounders, against a large privateer, deserves a record. Being off Bamborough Castle, his little vessel was attacked by the Infernale, of 12 guns, with a crew of 148 men, and an action of two hours' duration ensued; when, having expended all his ammunition, and had five of his crew killed and 18 wounded, Lieutenant Orrock was compelled to surrender. The privateer had seven men killed and 25 wounded. For his conduct on this occasion Lieutenant Orrock was deservedly promoted.
