Possibly this vessel:
4 December 1812 Paz captured the privateer schooner Revenge master John Sinclair, Jnr. Revenge was out of Salem and was carrying guns, ammunition and provisions for a cruise. Paz had captured Revenge, the former John and George (of three guns and 38 men, out of Salem), off the Jeddore Ledges.
In Halifax, two successful privateers, Thomas Freeman and Snow Parker, bought Revenge at Halifax for £530 and renamed her Retaliation. She was armed with two 4-pounder guns and a long 12-pounder gun on a pivot; to these her new owners added two 12-pounder carronades. Retaliation went on to have a successful career preying on American shipping
