Cadiz, July 11. The Astrea Frigate, which sailed from hence on the 20th of March, after having sailed as far as the Line, was obliged to return to Europe, on account of a contagious Fever, joined to the Scurvy, which had seized the greatest Part of the Crew. She has put on Shore almost all her Hands.
