LONDON, November 27. The three Persons saved out of the Royal Anne Galley, being arriv'd in Town from Cornwal, were examined last Saturday before a Board of Ad- miralty ; we are assured the following is the Substance of what they depo- sed before their Lordshipst viz. that they had heard the late Lord Bel- haven had pressed Capt. Willis to sail before the Wind permitted, that ac- cordingly they departed from Plymouth on Wednesday the 8th Instant, con- trary to the Inclination of the Commander and the other Officers, and had ( 11 ; had not been ab$ ve 24 Hours at Sea before it was found Impracticable to proceed the Wind being at South West, wherefore Capt. Willis thought to make the Lands End, and, as he thought, took his Dispositions accord- ingly, when ou the 10th between 2 and 3 in the Morning, the eldest Lieu- tenant Mr. Baker being upon the Watch, to his very great Surprize found they were among the Lixzard Rocks, whereupon he immediately allarm d the Ship. The Lord Belhaven, the Captain, and the other chief Persons ou Board came immediately in their Shirts upon the Quarter- Deck, and seeing no possibility of saving the Ship, & c. were about to put off the Long- Boat to save themselves, but before this could be effected the Ship struck to pieces against the Rocks; two of the Men who give this Accountt took to a piece of Wreck on which was one of the Ship Guns, and from e. got upon the Rocks; the Boy who is sav'd was upon another Wreck . with 4 Men,, which he very prudently left, and took to a Rock, and the 4 Men just coming to the Shoar, a merciless Wave dash'd ' em from their Hold into the Sea: Thus these 3 poor Creatures continu'd upon the Rockst amidst the Shrieks and dying Groans of their Ship Mates, which were dashing to pieces against the Rocks on all sides of them ; but when Day- ' light appeared they saw a Sight full as Melancholly and that was, the Cornish Savages at the Sea- shoar, rifling the Bodies of their dead Bre- threw, who instead of sending off their Boats to carry them to Land, continued their Depradations till 3 in the Afternoon, when they vouch- sased to fetch them a shoar. . Thus had they continued from 3 in the Morn- ing till 3 in the Afternoon on the Rocks in their Shirts only, and then Leggs and Arms mostmiserably torn in climbing up the rugged Rocks.
