Yesterday dispatches were received from
Admiral Cochrane, off Ferrol. They state,
there was reason to suppose the French fleet
in that port would endeavour to put to sea,
having since the war commenced been onn
pletely fitted out by the Spanish officers.
No less than sixteen Spanish prizes, ex

Theloan intended to be negociated for in

said, is determined to protect.
