Dublin, October 12.

By a letter received this day from Corke we have an account that the 6th Instant the Hampshire and Bridgewater Men of War brought into Kinsale the La Tourterelle, a small Privateer belonging to Granville of 14 guns and 74 men. That the next day the Tyger and Tygress Privateers of Bristol, sent into Kinsale a large Martinico Ship laden with sugar, &c. And that last night the Tyger arrived at this port with the Grand Bayonne Privateer of Bilboa, 240 men, 24 guns, has done much mischief, reigned since the commencement of the Spanish War, computed to have taken about 120 sail of English Ships.
