NewBern, October 24th, 1777.

Since our last, Capt. Ward, of the Independent Company stationed on Core Banks, has taken a Prize Schooner called the Liverpool, commanded by Capt. Mayes, from Providence to New York, loaded with Fruit and Turtle for Lord Howe. This Vessel put into Cape Lookout Bay, under the Sanction of a Pretended Friend, but Capt. Ward's Vigilance soon discovered her to be an Enemy, and in the Night boarded her with some of his Company, and took her. She is about 30 Tons, has been fitted as a Privateer, and now mounts several Swivels, and is reported a very fast Sailer.

On Tuesday last was married, Mr. James Green, Jun. of this County, to Miss Peggy Cogdell, second Daughter of Colonel Richard Cogdell, of this Town; a most amiable and agreeable young Lady, with a considerable share of Beauty and other Accomplishments.
