Tbo allied army, Including militia, amounted to
about 16,000 men. The Kngllsli army did not
number more than 7.500.
The main body of the English, under Lord
Cornwall!!, was encamped In the oped ground
around the towo, within a range of outer re
doubts and field works calculated to command
tho peninsula, while a detachment of GOO or
700 men held Gloucester Point, prrjectlog from
the opposite shore, or into Ihe river, and nar
rowing It to the space of one mile. Couimutil
cation between them was proteuUd by I he b tt

The allied army advanced upon tho town
the Americana having Ihe right and the French
the left and pressed on so eagerly that tn tho
night of the 30th, Lord Corn wall Is withdrew
from his outer Hoes, and the works he bad
evacuated were next day occupied by Ihe be

Gloucester side, for tbe purpose of keeping up
it rigorous blockade, which, alter a sharp skir

tbey made no lurther attempt to interrupt.
On tbe night of Oct. 0'. the first parallel was
opened within COO yards of the British lines,

The second p irallel was opened no lb nigbt
