I gave information in my last dated in Elizh Town the 17th Inst. that Transports were falling down through the Narrows; I have since had a confirmation of the report; I am assured that at least 12 Sail of Transports under convoy of the Rotterdam, & one Frigate sailed on Saturday; I make no doubt they are destined for Charlestown—It is generally believed in New York that Lt Christophers is taken, and Confusion pervades every Citizen—I am Sir Your Excellencys humble servant
