"Montezuma, Iramiesch, December 7.—Yesterday a Russian frigate and a Russian schooner left Sebastopol, and sailed in all haste towards the bay of Strelestka: The Megare, which was on the watch, exchanged cannon-shot with these two vessels, which were received at the entry of Strelestka by our two look-out ships, anchored in that bay. At the approach of an English frigate, which three other English and French frigates followed, the enemy retraced his route and returned in great haste to Sebastopol. None of the Russian balls reached our troops encamped at Strilestka."
