Luwson to hiB Excel lency the Governor, dated Smithfield, May 13, 1779: 4,i presume your Excellency, by this time, is pretty well informed of the strength and move meuts ol the enemy. From accounts which 1 have received, the cruel and horrid depredations and ra pine committed on the unfortunate and defenceless inhabitants who have fallen within their reach, ex ceed almost every thing yet heard of within the circle ot their tragic display of savage barbarity ! ? Household ittrntiure, stock of all kinds, horses, and in short, almost every species ot perishable proper ty are effectually destroyed with unrelenting fury ; by these devils incarnate, murder, rape, rapine ana violence till up the dark catalogue ol their deiesta ble transactions! They surprised and took a small body of Frenchmen at the Great Bridge, whom ihey murdered immediately on the spot, to the amount ot seven. The let-lings of humanity are deeply wounoed with reflections on the various and pointed cruelties exercised towards eur suflering countrymen, and cull aloud for the most vigorous and spirited exertions. The militia at this place on oetng informed that arms were coming, they wete much spirited up, and possess the greatest desire ol revenge and retaliation." Extract of another letter from the same gentle man: "On my way down from Smithfield towards Suf folk, 1 met numbers of the unfortunate inhabitants flying troin the rapid approach oi the enemy with such circumstances ot distress as language cannot paint. 1 feel no pleasure (I believe your Excellency will think) in enumerating and dwelling upon the distresses ot our countrymen and fellow creatures, hut on the present occasion, they exceed any thing iu imagination. The enemy are now in possession of Suffolk, a part ot which is actually in flames, and the whole will probably be in a small time." From Kiviogton'i Royal Gazette. Nbw Yohk (City,) May 22. by authority. We are happy to be able to inform our readers that his Majesty's forces on the expedition, under the command ol Major General Mathews ?nd Sir George Collier, entered the Capes of Virginia on the 8ih iust., after a very favorable passage ol four days, but the troops were prev-nted by contrary winds from landing until the 10th, which they ef fected at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, at the Glebe, on the western shore of Elizabeth river, just out ol cannon shot of the fort, which the enemy evacu ated (through fear of having their retreat cut ofl) before the Brittah troop* could reach the south branch of Elizabeth river. The General having taken possession of the fort, and placed guards in the town, encamped his army in two linos, with his right to the fort, and leti t<> the south branch.

On the 11th, the flank companies of the Guards took a strong position, ten miles in front ot the |. fi wing, aud the volunteers ot Ireland took another, equally strong in front of the left wing. The cen tre of the line was covered by an impenetrable swamp. On the 12th, the Guarde were detnehed to the right to Suflolk, where they arrived at daybreak, and finding the town deserted, they destroyed se veral vessels, a very large magazine of provisions, a qo mtity ot naval stores and two pieces ot cannon. Only two persona were wounded oil our side on the ocoasion. The volunteers of Ireland had Rome slight skir mi hing, in which they suffered little, the enemy having lost in killed, wounded and prisoners 24? besid-?

T.ie damage done to the enemy by the destruc tion of the trigates and other vessels they were building at Portsmouth, and the Joss they sustained in cannon, ammunition, provisions, tooacco, and other valuable commodities, winch tell into our hands, have been very considerable. We hear, on good authority, that the fli*et under the Command of Sir Get). Collier, which lately aniled on a secret expedition, arrived^ off the Capes <>f Virginia in 4 days after they left Sandy-Hook ? that on their close approach it? the entrance si the Chesapeak, a most violent storm, attended with thunder, lightning and ruin, came on at thatinstHnt they anchored, which lasted about half an hour, and then clearing up, afforded the pleasing prospect 'hat no ship had been driven on shore That the fleet pushed up the river, anJ came to an anchor near Portsmouth, regulated in such a manner as to block up James lliver, and the egress and ingress of the Cheaipeak, so that all communication in point of the extensive trade that has been hitherto carried on by our old Iriends the French, was wholly cut off. A great number of captures have been made by the King's ships and private vessels of war; and a fine held is open for their making great fortunes. It is said that some ships from old France, not knowtug our fleet and troops were there, feU into our hands That two very large French ships,said to contain near a thousand hogs heads of tobacco, had been net fire toby the rebels; and which were totally consumed, radter than let them fall io'o the hands of the English. That a jjreat number of the inhabitants were hourly coming in to claim their Sovereign's mercy and protection, from the cruel tyranny of the r bel persecution ; and that among the numbers, most of the principal people of that province have voluntarily come in, with a determination never to return to their home till rebellion is suppressed and the Britisli laws and J government restoied That we have met wtth magazine* and stores, particularly a quantity ol seasoned timber, fit for shipping and that our small armed sloops, Arc had ruu up trie river, and demolished a number of their vessels fitting out as privateers, particularly one called the Black Snake, of 16 guns, ready to put to sea, and that every thing seemed to be attended with the highest prospect uf auccess.

At a numerous meeting in the State House Yard, yesterday afternoon, Gen.

Committees were chosen for the purpose of carry tng the resolves into execution, who are to report their proceedings to the next General Town Meeting. In CONOR ESS, May 28, 1779. The Board of Treasury having reported, "That in their opinion it will he impracticable to carry on the war by paper emissions, at the present enor mous expenses of the Commissary General, Quar ler Master General, and Medical Departments ; that it appears to them that a general opinion pre vails, that one cause of the alarming expenses in these departments, arises from allowing commis sions in the numerous persons employed in | nr. chasing for the army, and that a very general dis satisfaction has taken place on that account among the citizens of thesa States, and that in their opin ion it is necessary to put the said departments on a different footing with resptct to the expenditure o| public money " Resolved, That the same he referred to a Com mittee of three, and that they be directed to report apian for that purp se.

General M'Dotigal! has not received a jus tifiable reason why the fort was given up. Thi litlle fort was built on purpose to secure King's fer ry, from the insults of the enemy's ve?seU, which frequently had interrupted our boats from crossing ; it was small and would contain, with ronveniency, about a company of men. The redoubt was strong and covered a barbette battery, mounting tlirei pieces of cannon We had in the barbette a com pany of artillery ; they were all drawn off hnt a sergeant, a corporal and 12 privates In the redoubt were a captain, 2 subalterns, thr? e sergeants, and ?11 rank and file. They had provisions and water to serve thirty days. Wednesday evening?The wind now prevents the shipping from advancing to Fort Clinton on West Point; which, we suppose, is the enemy's main object. The fort is now in tolerable order, well provided, and the men in high spirit?the mi litia are Coming in fast, and every appearance is promising. The enemy have come out in lorce, and,it is said, are from seven to ren thousand men. Their troops from their late excursion to Virginia, returned last Thursday, and, without Inndtug at at New York, pushed ui> the river. Thursday morning, 4 o'clock, we learn that the enemy are in motion, us if they meant to come up the east side of the river. Arthol's Highlanders, called the 7-lth, who ar rived at New York some weeks ago, are all the reinforcement the euemy have yet teceived, that we can learn. Since the British landed, we have taken seven prisoners; and three destriers have come in. Yesterday it was reported, that the enemy had burnt Lieut. Gov.

On Friday last the following officers nrrived at Eliz bet -Town Iront New York, on parole, viz i General Thompson, General Waferhury, Colonel ilousecker. Porter, Allison and Webb. Two Sub ilterns in the land service, and two Captains and some others in the navy, were at the same time exchanged. Saturday last about two o'clock in the morning, i party ol near 2(H) of the enemy lauded at Middle 'ow ii, in Monmouth county, on a picarooning expe dition. But from the alertness of our militia in collecting, and bravery in repelling those invaders, ihey were soon driven on board their boats, by which tliey were prevented from doing any oihtr imschit f than plundering two or three families. We hear Mr. Zedwnz, late a lieutenant Col. belonging to the Stute of New York, in the service of the Uuited States, was a few days ago taken Up near Morris-Town, dressed in women's clothes ? About the time the British took possession of New York, he was tried by a Court-Martial und found guilty of Htteinpiiug to give information to the ene my, for which he was sentenced to imprisonment luring the War.
