WAR DEPARTMENT. Admiralty-office, August 15, 1812.—Extract of a letter from Vice-admiral Sir James Saunarez, Bart. K.B. &c. to John Wilson Croker, Esq. dated on board his Alajesty's sbiy Victory, in Hawke Road, 5th August 1812.-HEREWITH I have the honour to enclose, for the information of the Lords Conimissioners of the Admiralty, a letter I have received from Rear-admiral. Martin, dated Riga, the 25th ult. transmitting the accompanging official paper, giving an account of a spirited attack by Prince Bagration, on a large body of the enemy's cavalry, which were completely' routed, and one thousand men made prisoners.

Extract of a letter from Rear-admiral Martin to Vice-admiral Sir James Saumarez, dated at Riga, the 25th July 1812.--THIS instant, on my return from our advanced post, where Captain Stewart is stationed with a division of gun-boats, I have the satis. faction to learn that a messenger arrived during my absence, with intelligence of the Priuce Bagration having attacked Davoust's cavalry in a most spirited manner, the result of which is made public at this place by the inclosed official paper.

Translation.— Intelligence of the operations of the army, which lias been received here this day, dated at Polotzk, the 7th (19th) July.—IN the first engagement of consequence which has taken place, victory has declared itself in favour of our native country and of humanity. Prince Bagration, who was employed in the execution of the movements intrusted to himn, in order to effect a junction with the first army, fell in, on his march with his avant-garde, with the whole of the enemy's cavalry. The Russian troops, who bad long been eager for battle, rell is upon them, and after the most resolute resistance London Gazette ---Dispatches from Sir J. Saumarez. of the enemy, which rendered this battle the more conspicuous, nine regiments of the enemy were completely cut down; above 1000 men, and upwards of 50 staff, and upper officers, made prisoners. The difficulties which the enemy had endeavoured to lay in the way of the operations of the second army are now removed. Nothing now stands in the way to prevent these two armies, with their united strength, from preparing for the swarm of their enemies the fate with which every desolating conqueror has ended, so far as the history of nations has taught us. This praise-worthy battle we can consider as the pledge for further brilliant deeds. Wbile victory will conduct our feelings in a new battle the victims of our opponent will diminish their confidence in the fortune of war, as well as tbeir power and inclination for making resistance.

Admiralty-office, August 15, 1812.—Extract of another letter from Vice-admiral Sir James Saumarez, Bart. and K.B. &c. to John Wilson Croker, Esq. dated on hoard the Victory, in Hawke Road, 7th August 1812.-HEREWITH I transmit a letter 1 kafe this morning received by express from Hano, from Rear-admiral Martin, dated Riga, the 27th ultimo, informing me of the junction of General Barclay de Tolli, commander. in-chief of the Russian army, with the corps of Prince Bagration.

Extract of a letter from Rear-admiral Martin to Vice-admiral Sir James Savmarez, dated at Riga, the 27th July 1812.-GENERAL Barclay de Tolli, the commander-inchief of the Russian army, has announced his junction, by forced marches, with the corps of Prince Bagration at Witepsk, where the messenger who is just arrived, left him on the 24th instant. The Emperor Alexander bad himself reached Smolenski, probably to stimulate, by his presence, the natives of that loyal province to exertions suited to the danger with which they are threatened. The emperor's activity and earnestness in the prosecution of the war, affords an admirable example to his subjects who, in Old Russia, are devoted to his cause. The nobles of Moscow have offered to raise one hundred thou. sand men at their own expence, besides a voluntary contribution of two millions of silver rubles, to be at the emperor's disposal. We learn by the same messenger, that the peace with Turkey is ratified.

Admiralty-nffice, August 15, 1812.--Copy of another letter from Vice-admiral Sir James Saumarez, Bart, and K.B. &c. to John Wilson Croker, Esq. dated on board the Victory, in Hawke Road, 8th August 1812.-18.--HEREWITH I enclose a copy of intelligence of the operations of the Russian army, published at Riga, 15th (27th) July 1812, which I received yesterday evening from Rear-admiral Morris, to whom it had been transmitted by Rear-admiral Martin, in a merchant vessel, which you will please to lay before their lordships. I am, &c.

Translation.-Intelligence this day received of the operations of the army.—THE objects of the battle, which tlie advance of Prince Bagration's army victoriously sustained with the enemy, is accomplished. The first west army has effected a junction with that of Prince Bagration, and now both hasten mutually to the attack of the enemy. At the same time the agreeable intelligence of the final conclusion of peace with the Ottoman Porte, is received. With united force the Russian arnies now stand opposite the enemy, whose operations have hitherto been confined to preventing their junction, but which objects they have been unable to accomplish. Their brethren in arms on the Danube, now turn from their conciliated oppunents towards them, to take part in their deeds, from the result of which, Russia has to expect immortal glory, and oppressed Europe the dawn of freedom.
