Extract of a letter from the battery at Tancos of the 17ih of May — Yesterday, the 16:h, the unhap iy anniversary of the rebellion at Oporto in 1828, orders were given for the whole line of our batteries in the north end south of the Douro; to open their fire on the rebels shut up in that city, which was done with such vigour, that it seemed as if the day of judgment was come for that city, the Foz, and the vicinity. Everywhere the greatest courage was displayed, but particularly in the bat- teries of Barbacena, Tancos, D. Miguel I Castello de Gaya, Ist, 2d, 3d, by which an immense number of houses were destroyed and people killed. That of the Castello de Gaya produced the greatest effect, in conse. quence of ita incomparable position, with the largo gun, which sunk two vessels belonging to the rebels of two boats full of rebels, who were passing to the Serra, one was sunk. Lastly, having levelled a great number of houses, it silenced all the enemy's batteries within its range, viz. those ef the Serra, Torre de Marca, Victoria, and two in the Virtudes; the laiter were not only silenced, but some of the officers and soldiers killed, and the co- lours shot away. This battery alone fired before noon 215 shot, among which were 102 bombs; so that the inhabitants of the city were in consternation, and aban- doned their houses to die in the streets.Co)-rcio do Porto. MAY 21. A letter from Rio Tinto of the 19th says :—" The deserters who have come in agree with respect to the great damage and loss of life in Oporto caused by the fire of our artillery on the 16th. The new battery of the Castello de Gaya does great injury to the city, and com- mands the Douro. On the 16th, when the two yachts were sunk, a small armed schooner was also sutik. Dis- eases again afflicted the city at the beginning of this month, and with much greater violence, carrying off 200 persons daily. After the 10th they began to abate. The troops and the rebels had also suffered, and in some corps the number of victims was considerable. "-Correio do Porto. May 22. A letter from Villa Nova de Gaya of the 19th inntant says, 11 Misery and all kinds of disasters continue in Oporto, and our artillery does not cease to destroy build- ings and kill people in the city. The batteries of the bar, &c. do their duty, and it is only by night that some boats can escape, covered by the fire of the Foz, for by day absolutely nothing can escape.Coi-reio do Porto.
