London Gazette.--Various Dispatches, &c.
Riga, August 11, 1812.-I HAVE the honour to enclose, for your information, a letter which I have this instant received from General Essen, cominunicating the agreeable intelligence of the continued success of the Russian arms, and the junction of Prince Bagration's corps, with the main army at Smolensko. This information is from the coinmander-in-chief, General Barclay de Tolli, who dates his letter the 4th instant, at Smolensko. In addition to what is mentioned in the general's letter, I learn that General Tormassoff suddenly left the position which he had occupied for some time at Gitomirz or Zitomirz, in order to attack a corps of Saxons, stationed near Kubryn, twenty-four miles from Bryex Litowski, and about one hundred and thirty miles east of Warsaw, where he defeated the enemy, who retired towards Minsk.
Admiralty-office, September 1, 1812.-Vice-admiral Sir James Saumarez, bart. K.B. has transmitted to John Wilson Croker, esq. a letter from lieutenant J. C. Crawford, commanding his Majesty's gun-brig Wrangler, off Seyer Island, August 1812, of which the enclosed is a copy.-SIR--IN pursuance of your orders of the 14th instant, I proceeded off Randers with your boats, and the cutter of the Locust, but not finding the French lugger there, I proceeded farther to the westward, off Mariager Fiord, to reconnoitre that port; a small Danish cruizer was perceived coming out, gave chase to her, when she bore up, and ran into Alborg: at night lieutenant Petley, myself, and Mr. Curtis, (second master of the Locust) thought that she might be carried by the boats, which was agreed upon. Lieutenant Petley then procecded in shore, with the barge and cutter, in company with the Lucust's boats, under charge of Mr. Curtis, her second master. About two o'clock in the morning they got alongside of her, and carried her from under a very heavy fire from the battery and musquetry from Halle's Fort, in the entrance of that river, without the loss of a single man. She is one of those cruisers that have been of great annoyance to our convoys off the Scaw; she mounts two brass six-pounders, one long two-pounder, and small arms, and commanded by lieutenant Tetens of the Danish navy, and commodore of a division of gun-boats off Flanstrand, with a complement of twenty-two men, who made their escape into the battery of Halle. They found her moored close under the muzzle of the guns of the battery, and could not prevent the lientenant and men from making their escape, except one man, whom we have a prisoner. I stood in shore, as far as I could with safely, to cover the boats.
I have the honour to be, &c. J. C. CRAWFORD, Lieut-com.
