Admiralty-Office, April 22, 1806.

Copy of a letter from Admiral Lord Gardner, Commander in Chief of His Majesty's Ships and Vessels at Cork, to William Marfden, Esq, dated on board the Trent, Cork Harbour, April 16, 1806.

SIR, inclosed I have the honor of transmitting, for the information of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, a letter from Captain Brace, of His Majesty's Ship Virginie, giving an account of his having on the 9th Instant, in Lat. 46 Deg. 49 Min. N. Long. 10 Deg. 25 Min. W. captured the Spanish Schooner Privateer Vengador, mounting 14 guns, and having a complement of 82 men. I understand from Lieutenant Powell, who is arrived in charge of the above privateer, that she is out 12 days from Bordeaux, and had not made any captures during that period.

I have the Honor to be, &c.

GARDNER.
