In September, the Bellona was outfitted with twelve cannons, then augmented by Richard Ellis and some merchants of New Bern further with sixteen to eighteeen guns for action against the British. Also outfitted was the 18-gun privateer Chatham, commanded by Capt. Pendleton.

Soon after setting sail, the Chatham captured the brig Elizabeth out of St. Augustine carrying a load of indigo and lumber.

The Bellona, commanded by Capt. Hinson, captured the schooner Actason from New York, along with another sloop. Then, the Bellona seized the privateer Harlecan out of New York, which surrendered without a fight.
