tuguese Order of the Tower and Sword.

This gallant officer was employed in Lord
Nelson's squadron off Boulogne, and par-
ticipated in the several desperate cutting-
out expeditions on the French coast. In
1804, when in command of a detachment of



Royal Marines, he landed at Port Jackson
during an alarming rising of the convicts,
and by his promptitude and exertions quelled
the insurrection, and preserved the town of
Sydney. In 1806 he served in one of the
boats of the Minerva frigate at the cutting-
out of five luggers under a fort in Finisterre
Bay ; shortly afterwards was one of the
crew of the Minenxi's barge when she cap-
tured (fifty miles from the frigate, and after
a very severe action at noon-day) the
Spanish privateer Buena Dicha, with a
picked crew of thirty six men; commanded
a boat at the capture of a Spanish gun- brig
at Carrib, and shortly afterwards commanded
the marines at the capture of Fort Finisterre,
where he led the storming party, and was
the first to enter the fort. In 1808 he
served in boats at the cutting-out of the
Spanish vessel of war San Josefs on which
occasion he landed and made the Spanish
Commodore prisoner, who surrendered to
him his swoi'd ; commanded the marines at
the capture of Fort Guardia, and subse-
quently at the cutting out of the French
corvette La Mosella, from under a battery
in Basque Roads, on which occasion he was
slightly wounded ; was engaged at the cap-
ture of some gun-boats from under the guns
of Fort Camarinus, and also at the capture
of the fort itself; has been engaged in other
severe boat actions and encounters with
batteries, and was presented with a sword
for liis services by the Patriotic Fund.

Colonel Menzies descends from the an-
