following particulars of the capture of Curracou, is taken from the Barbados
Mercury of the 31st ult. -
of Curracoa. [heading]
Jamaica, Jan. 24.
Saturday night last arrived at Port Royal, His Majesty's frigate Anson, of 40
guns, Capt. Lydiard, from Curracoa, with 300 prisoners, and the colours
captured at that Island, which was taken in the most extraordinary and gallant
manner, by a squadron of frigates, consisting of the Arethusa, 34 guns, Captain
Brisbane; Latona, 38, Capt. Wood; Anson, 40, Capt. Lydiard; Fisgard, 38, Capt.
skill in planning, singular boldness in executing, this event will rank amongst
the first of heroic actions - it is indeed perfectly in unison with every thing
glorious in the past, and an example of every thing great to the future.
our squadron did not possess the means of laying regular siege to the place,
Capt. Brisbane came to the determination of sailing into the port, and storming
forts hitherto considered as impregnable, or perishing in the attempt, for retreat
was impossible. The time chosen was day dawn on the morning of the first of
January, when all the boats were hoisted out, and the squadron stood in with a
good breeze, the Arethusa leading. The enemy were panic struck at such
unexpected temerity; all was confusion - here soldiers without officers - there
officers without soldiers; alarm drums beating in all directions; a British
squadron in their very harbour, and within pistol shot of their batteries,
before sun-rise. Troops collected at Otra Banda were prevented from crossing
the water, our ships interposing; not more than three broadsides were fired
from our frigates, when the ships' companies and officers of the [illegible]
Anson, with the marines of the [illegible] Captains Brisbane and Lydiard, were
stormed, and all the [illegible] works had British colours flying before eight
o'clock. Fort Republic on the hill, and [illegible]. The Fisgard had orders
to act against Otra Banda, two batteries distinct from the main land she took
possession of, to one of which the men absolutely swan, the enemy being
previously dislodged. The guns of Fort Amsterdam were fired [illegible]. On
our people storming the place, they did not act in a body, but retreated in
confusion, firing round corners, and from houses. The militia, amounting to
3000, had not time to collect, nor could they cross the water in boats. The
Dutch frigate Kenau Hasstat was boarded by Captain Brisbane, the Latona warped
alongside and took possession, when Captain Brisbane proceeded for the shore.
The Surinam corvette was boarded from the larboard bow of the Anson, while her
starboard guns were firing at the batteries. The Flying Fish, a large national
schooner, was boarded by the boats of the Arethusa; the officers and crew of
those vessels fought most gallantly; Commodore Cornelius Vertz was killed; the
Captain of the Surinam mortally wounded, and the first Lieutenant dangerously,
besides several others. The moment the Town, Fort Amsterdam, &c. were
completely in Captain Brisbane's possession, a Lieutenant of Marines was sent
with a flag of truce, requiring Fort Republic to surrender. The officer
discontinued firing, but would not surrender without an order from
Lieutenant-General J. P. Changnion [sic], the Governor, who was at this time a
prisoner, with all his staff, in Fort Amsterdam. We understand that Captain
Brisbane desired the Council to be collected, and gave them five minutes to
capitulate for the whole island; but as they intreated for a longer period, it
was extended to half an hour; in the mean time the most active preparations
were made for storming this almost inaccessible fort. The ship's company of
the Fisgard, commanded by Captain Bolton, were in boats ready to proceed by
water. The marines of the squadron, with about 300 sailors of the Arethusa and
Anson, were prepared to advance by land, the remainder of the sailors on shore,
including an officer and sixty men from the Latona, manned such guns as could
bear on the object of attack, every thing was ready on a signal being made,
when a capitulation was signed, and the troops of Fort Republic alone marched
out with the honours of war, piling their arms and becoming prisoners. All
private property is respected, and the troops to be sent to Europe and
exchanged. Captain Bolton took possession of Fort Republic. Captains Brisbane
and Lydiard landed nearly together, the former was the first man who scaled the
wall, the latter the second, closely followed by their respective officers and
ships companies. Captain Wood remained afloat in the command of the squadron;
about 200 of the enemy were killed; our loss is very trifling; had our ships
been half an hour later in the attack the slaughter must have been dreadful:
nothing could be better timed. The cidevant Governor comes a passenger on his
way to Europe.

- 3 killed, 14 wounded.
understand that there were upwards of sixty Spanish, French, and Dutch Vessels,
exclusive of six or seven Americans, lying at Curracoa when that island fell
into our possession: some of them are stated to be of great value.
