Captain Lockhart fell in with the Mont Ozier, Rochelle privateer, mounting 20 long 9 -pounders, with a crew of 180 men. After a short engagement the privateer struck; but while preparations were making for taking possession of her, she suddenly bore up, and attempted to board the Tartar. The Tartar's crew, however, were on the alert,
and repelled the treacherous proceeding with such energy, that 36 of the privateer's crew were killed and a great number wounded. The privateer then sheered off and recommenced the action, but after losing in the whole 58 men was compelled to surrender.
