The Bay of Almeira was rendered famous in 1804 by the desperate daring of Lord Cochran of the British Navy, then commanding the frigate Insurgent. He sent in his boats and cut out a French privateer, in which he lost one third of his whole crew, the boats being twice repulsed with great loss, and only succeeded on a third attempt, when Cochran headed the attack in person. The Moorish Fort on the right, still remains, but in a state of dilapidation, and ruin. [P. 5.]
