Yesterday mornu^*^ British frigate and a sloop of war, werewit anchor off live Neck, about 10 miles abou*; New Rochelie, in the middle of the Sound, where they remained at 4 o’clock in the afternoon, becalmed, with six sloops and schomfers, (their prizes) at anchor astern of them, and several tenders cruizing about the Sound, two of which, ap~ paruntly smacks, were several miles this side of New Ri.chelie. hi the morning at 11 o’clock the enemy had 9 sloops and schoon ers at anchor astern of them, all of which were supposed to be prizes. A gentleman from Mainoroncck, informed us, that the enemy madeoO prizes on Tues day afternoon, 20 of which they sent off to the Eastward ; and that the same evening, they sent their barges ashore in t ie neigii borhood of Mamaroueck, and stoi* from 60 to 80 sheep. A sloop was also chased into Mamaroueck, by mieof the tenders, and e“ scaped without*any other damage, than a shot through the mainsail.
