11 or 14,000 men the abatis before the
village of Ponlmertuil, occupied by the

regiment was, by filch a superiority of
numbers, forced to fall back, and to a

ring its retreat, the enemy's hoife tnade
an attempt to fall upon the regiment \ but

well as the abatis. The regiment of
Brechenville attacked-in front, whilst Ge

which manoeuvre, executed with equal
bravery and ikill, fncceeded so well, that
the enemy were obliged to abandon the'

Capt. George CrSwninfhieM, jun. arrived
Ivr*?, last week, from Calcutta, which he
Krr iaft December. He confirms the accounts
we have had, of the great iu<xefs of the
I'rench privateers in that quarter. The en
thufialin which actuates the French in Eu
-1 ope, operates upon them as powerfully in
Aha their privateers make no calculations
cnt?.j inequality of force, but attack and
conquer ala mode de la re-volution. A Dutch
liidiman of 40 guns Was taken by a small
privateer brig— the men throwing tiiemfelves
into the water, and fwimmirig to the ihip
with their cutlafie-s, in their mouths, and
boarding her os all quarters. Onr privateer
of the lfle of France arrived with a large
lum of ransom money for fever al velfels flic
had taken, and besides had ordemi 2 i prizes
into port. A private expedition* had gone
irom the lfle of France against Batavia, the
rei'ult of which was not known. The inha
bitants of the Lie of France were apprehen
, five of a visit, in their turn, from the Eng
| liih, and were preparing to receive them
j nurteoujly. ■ Great natural obftacies—vaft
\ quantities of ordnance—a powder mill in

—such were their means of defence.

NEWARK, May 28.
On Friday lalt arrived in this town, a
gentleman immediately from New-Orleans,
who descended the rivers Ohio and Miffi

who informs that a body of Gen. Clark's
party, to the number of 21, had collect
ed at the mouthiof Cumberland river, allot
ted as the place of rendezvous ; their in
tentions were, when a fufficient number
thould have collected, to proceed to Loui
siana, for the purpose of attacking
that place, as has been mentioned in
former accounts : but a fufficient number
for this purpose not having been collect
ed, and Clark not complying with his
promise, viz. to compensate them for
their services, they determined to flop de*
| tain and plunder, all boats that Ihould be
found palling the river; this gentleman
having been previoafly informed of their
intentions, by tiling every precaution pas
sed them, in the night, unperceived, and
proceeded on to Lance le Grace, on the
Miffifippi, (a Spanish fcttlement) where
he gave information to the commandant of
the designs of those ruffians. He imme
