Notes on Ship


Admiralty-Office, April 16

Vice-Admiral Martin was forced to put into Plymouth on the 22d Instant, with part of his squadron, which has suffered by bad weather, and has left the remainder at sea. He has brought in with him a French Privateer of 18 guns and 140 men, called Le Chasseur, taken by the Yarmouth. The Defiance, commanded by Captain Powlett, has taken, and sent into Plymouth, a French Man of War, called the Ambuscade of 40 guns, and 365 men. The engagement was on the 21st, and lasted 2 hours, in which the Ambuscade had 26 Men killed and wounded 1 and the Defiance had only 1 man killed and 3 wounded. She is a new ship, and longer by the keel, and as broad on the deck as the Defiance.
