At the Admiralty-house, in the High-street, Portsmouth, aged 75, sir Thomas Foley, G.C.B. admiral of the White, rear-admiral of Great Britain, and commander-in-chief at Portsmouth. In the memorable battle off Cape St. Vincent, Feb. 14, 1797, capt. Foley bore a distinguished part, as captain of the Britannia, a first rate, carrying the flag of sir Chas. Thompson. At the Nile, on the glorious 1st of August, 1798, captain Foley had the honour to lead the British fleet into action. The French commenced their fire at a quarter after six in the afternoon, and, in two minutes, it was returned by the Goliath, which then doubled their line, and brought up alongside of the Conquerant, the second ship in the enemy's van. In less than a quarter of an hour, captain Foley completely dismasted his opponent. and afterwards assisted in subduing the ships in the rear. In this tre mendous conflict the Goliath had twenty-one killed and forty-one wounded. She was subsequently employed at the blockade of Malta; and returned to England towards the end of 1799. In 1800, captain Foley commanded the Elephant seventy-four attached to the Channel fleet: from which, in the spring of 1801, she was removed to the north sea. Previously to the battle of Copenhagen, she received the flag of lord Nelson; who, in his dispatch to the commander-in-chief, sir Hyde Parker, observed, "To captain Foley, who permitted me the honour of hoisting my flag in the Elephant, I feel myself under the greatest obligation; his advice was necessary on many and important occasions during the battle." When the signal thirty-nine was made by sir Hyde Parker to discontinue the action, Nelson betrayed great emotion, and it was to captain Foley that he exclaimed, in that mood of mind which sports with bitterness, Leave off the
