westward of Cape Catouche, where the pirates have a very considerable establishment and came down Campeachy for purpose of procuring stores for a vessel then prepairing for a cruise. Two seamen who had been held as prisoners at N. Malaga, informed me that this gang were sometimes a hundred and upwards in number, that they held possession of a small fort having two twenty four pounders; and that an officer named Molla, who had been placed there by the Government had joined them, this was corroborated by the authorities at Campeachy—who requested me to land and destroy the place. The pirates issue from their post in barges, small vessels, and in canoes; hover along the shores, enter the harbour murder and destroy almost all that fall in their power: on the 2* June the American Sch. Shibbolet, Capt Perry, of N. Y. being then ready for sea, was boarded by a canoe having fourteen of these villians on board; the watch was instantly murdered eight others of the crew, were put in the forecastle, the hatch spiked down, a ton or more of Logwood put over it: the head sails set—with the wind off shore—and fire put to the vessel in the cabin—by the most extraordinary exertions, these now broke out, in time to save their lives. I arrived while the vessel was burning down. The same canoe then proceeded to windward and two days afterwards, took the Sch: Augustus & John off Sisal—and burnt her, having turned the crew adrift in a small boat—with every probability of their perishing. The people of the country were much exasperated, and turned out to hunt them from their shores—a party of Dragoons having met them, a skirmish insured, wherein the Captain of Dragoons, and several of his men were killed, and the pirates taking to their boats escaped—one of the seamen, I mentioned, as having been amongst them stated that he belonged to an English Sch. from N. Providence called the Flyer, that the crew with the exception of himself were instantly butchered—he was detained by them about two Mosnths] during which time they had captured nine vessels, some of which were brought in, but the principal part destroyed, and in some instances he was certain that the whole crews were murdered—when he left the place (about twenty days since) they had a Guinaman with two hundred slaves and a large quantity of Ivory two small schooners, Americans, and an English cutter [hiatus in ms.] informed me that pirates had a direct and uninterrupted intercourse with Havanna, by means of small coasting vessels that ran regularly to the ports on the coast, and always touched at N. Malaga—frequently some of them would go up to the Havanna, and others of the gang came down—That this infernal horde of villians have established themselves at N. Malaga I have no doubt, and from the information given me by men of the first respectability at Campeachy, Siral, and other places on that coast, I believe the pirates have been guilty of all the acts herein stated.

I have the Honor to be
Very Respectfully
Your Mo. Ob. Ser.
