We were informed yesterday that the frigate la Medea is arrived at Rochefort from Cape Francois, from whence she has brought the Marquis and Marchioness de Bouille, also M. de Bougainville, whom the Marquis de Vaudreuil per- mitted to return to France 0n account of his bad state of health. Paris, June 30. We learn, by the Medea, that the St. Esprit joined the fleet at the Cape, and that the Dauphin Royal, an old ship of 70 guns, has been broke up. The Auguste had above 400 balls in her, and is acknowledged to be one of those which suffered most on the 12th of April. If this be the case, M de Grasse is certainly wrong in complaining of the be- haviour of M. de Bougainville, her commander. It is said that M. de la Clocheterie, Captain of the Her- cules, is dead of his wounds at Curassoa. Rome, June 16.

Clerk of the Course. blame at all in the measure, and he hoped the house would think so too, when, he should- have informed them that the warrant had been signed also by that ' .. jfat and respectable personage whose memory would ever be held in veneration, and whose loss the whole nation must long deplore. Mr. Gascoyne, sen. approved very much of the mo- tion against the penfion. He must condemn those, who, at the time they were arraigning their prede- cessors for prodigality, and declaring that the finances of the country were completely distracted, were heap- ing new burdens upon the unfortunate people. The new Ministers, however, appeared better qualified for finding fault, than for avoiding the commission of - faults. Mr. Fox rose next, he stood in his old place, on the opposition side: he had not, he said, signed the warrant for the pension in. question ; but then it was not in his department to do so - for he confessed that he knew of it from the beginning-; and, as one of the Cabinet Council, he had advise'd his Majesty to grant it: the gentleman to whom it had been granted was a person, than whom no one could be more deserving of reward ; and therefore he should hold himself justified for the advice he had given, up- on the merits of the Member who was to enjoy the pension. If it should appear to some gentlemen, that any blame should fall upon Ministers for advising the grant of the pension in question, he begged it might be remembered, that it was not granted to any one of those who had thought proper to resign their em- ployments. The late noble Marquis had not pro- vided for those who most enjoyed his favour and esteem; it was a part of his character that he was most ready to provide for those with whom he was the least connected, and who, perhaps, were the most hostile to his own principles : If he had been of a different turn of mind, he would not have forgotten one, whose merits- gave him at least as high a- claim to public reward. But that noble Lord was no more his principles no longer guided the Cabinet;— and those who adhered to his principles, could no longer fit in the Cabinet,— since he, who had been the cor- ner stone of. the Administration, was removed ; with him his principles had been removed from the Cabi- net; and he should not be surprised, if he saw, in a short time, the Old Ministers restored to their former favourite bench in that House; for when he had rea son to think that their principles would soon be re- vived in the Councils of his Majesty, there could be little ground for surprise, if, with their principles, they should re- enter the Cabinet: nor ought it to He matter of surprise that he should have resigned his si tuation, when he faw a very great probability that those principles, which had been the very foundation of the Admimstration. in which, he had borne a part would be given up. General Conway lamented- that fatal difference of opinion, which had deprived his Majesty of the bene- fit of the splendid talents and extraordinary abilities of his honourable friend; but he really could not see that there was such a disagreement in the Cabinet, as could justify his honourable friend in withdrawing from it. When eleven Cabinet Ministers were assem bled in Council, it was impossible that there should not be some difference in opinion ; but when this difference was not of an important nature, to retire from the Cabinet was a measure, in his mind, not to be justi fied. For his part, he had not perceived any depar- ture whatever from those principles, which had been the basis of this Administration ; an Administration which he believed to have been the most popular that had ever been formed in, this or any other country. If he had perceived any such departure-, he not only would applaud his honourable friend for having with- drawn himself, but would accompany him in his re- treat, That the House might judge whether the ori- ginal principles upon which the late Administration had been formed, were still adhered to, or not, he would; with the leave of the House, state to them what these principles were. The first was, that the Inde- pendence o£ America should be unconditionally acknowledged; Upon this head; he remarked, that he had always considered this independence, came when it would, as a very great evil; but since he found that it had become necessary, since he found that- its must be acknowledged, or that this country must be undone, he thought, that of two evils, the left should be adopted, and that America ought to be declared independent, rather than that this country should be undone. In this opinion the whole Cabinet had concurred ; and tho' there was no difference uf opinion as to the means by which this business was to be done, there was but one opinion as to the main question. This would appear incontestibly from the dispatches which had been sent to America, by which an offer was to be made to the Americans t0 n - rh a negociation with them, upon this preliminary, that they were to be acknowledged an independent nation, and treated with as such.—[ Mr. Fox whispered across the House, that, by the resolutions of the Cabinet, the independence of America was to be the price of peace, and therefore could not be said to be uncondi- tional.]—' To this General Conway replied, that the distinction was, in his opinion, futile ; that the inde- pendence of America was what the people of that country had long been fighting for ; and when they found the great object for which they had supported 1 long, expensive, and bloody war was attained,, he was convinced that their arms would drop from their hands, and that they would think that a happy peace, which could be obtained by the attainment of that object for which they had been so long fighting. He wished that what he said might be as public as possible in America, that the people of that country might no longer be imposed upon by those who wished for a continuation of the war by the French, or by those among themselves whose ambitious views might be disappointed by a peace. The next principle upon which the new Adminis- tration had been formed was— that a regular system of oeconomy should be established in the expenditure of the Public money. From this principle he had not as yet been able to discover a deviation : the pension granted to the Right Hon. Member near him, did not appear to him a departure from it : indeed, he knew nothing of it originally, and had heard af it only very lately ; but he could not but approve of it. The third principle was, that the Independence of the lrish lcgislature, so fully acknowledged by the repeal of the 6th George I. should be established upon a firm system never to be departed from. From this, system it could not be said that the new Administra- tion had in any degree departed.. The fourth principle, was that a reform should take place in the Civil List, and other departments of the State. This principle had already been ad- hered to in part, and a bill now lay in the. Upper House for the Royal Assent, which would convince the Public that the Cabinet were in earnest on that head. These were the great principles upon which the Administration was' Formed , the House could already pronounce. how faithfully three of them had been ad- hered'to; as to the other, which related to America, time would convince them that the Cabinet were as determined to adhere to it as the others: . for his part he proclaimed- these to be his principles ; he had hi- therto every reason to say, they were the principles. also of the Cabinet ; but if ever it. would be resolved in Council to depart from any one'of them,, he would, rest satisfied to be pronounced the. most infamous of' men, if he should continue to act one moment with those men who should enter into such a resolution. For his part he did not mind men; he never would take a part in a scramble or quarrel for places, pen- sions, or for power ; he did not care who were the Members of the Cabinet, or who enjoyed power pro- vided those principles, which he had statcd as the fundamental points of the new Adminstration, were strictly adhered to: he looked to measures only, and and not to men. He lamented as much as any man the death of the noble Marquis which had occasioned the late division ;--- but he saw no, ground ' for appre- hension that the successor, who had been given to him, would not steadily pursue the true interests of his country ;--- that he would not- strictly adhere to the great leading- principle relative to America, which he had stated to the House : the noble Lord in question was-- not satisfied at bringing himself to think favoura- bly of American independence, to which the change of affairs had made him a convert; he went farther-, he had persuaded the King to think favourably of it also. He therefore was at a loss to discover the- effential ground of difference in the Cabinet, and the- cause of that separation and the loss of the assistance- of his honourable Friend, which no one could more sincerely lament than he did. Mr. Fox expressed his hope, that the house would escuse himself he shonld rise a fecond time, to excul- pate himself from so heavy a charge, as that of having: quitted the service of fhe public without cause, and ascribed a conduct or intention to the present Cabinet- which they had a right to disclaim. It seemed to have been insinuated, that disappointment in a con- teft for power, or for place, had been the true cauft of his retreat from Administration ; but he was hap- py to- have it in. his power to answer this charge effec- tually, by assuring the House, that he had, in a full' Cabinet Council, expressly declared, that if such and, such a measure should be adopted, he must necessarily resign his employment.— This declaration he had made before the death of the noble Marquis;- if he did not actually resign before that melancholy event, took place, it was because he would not accelerate it or embitter the last moments of a venerable friend, by taking a step which, he knew, would give him the greatest uneasiness : but to prove that the proba- bility of the death of that great and good man had no influence whatever upon him in his resolution to rea- lign, he said that when there was every hope given by the faculty, that the noble Marquis was likely to.- recover, he had on the very day these glad but delusive tidings had been brought to the cabinet,, positively declared that he must retire, if such a • particular measure should be adopted : he was out- voted in the Council, and that measure was adopted. Now as he looked upon that measure to be to the last degree dangerous to this country, he owed it to him- self and to his country, not to remain any longer in a situation in which he could not continue to act, with- out renouncing his own principles, or betraying his trust with the public. He stood in a delicate situa- tion,; it had been often said, - that while he himself and some other men, should continue in office, it would be looked upon as a pledge that nothing was going; forward that could be injurious to the public interest r. must he not therefore deceive those who should look upon his continuance in office as such a pledge, if he should consent to retain his situation, while measures- were pursuing . which he thought highly injurious to. the public interest? All that was great, all that was- good in the kingdom had countenanced his . retreat. His noble friend ( Lord John Cavendish) had resigned his employment;. and the, public would be naturally ted to pressume, that when such, a character quitted the Cabinet, n0 man of character ought to remain in it. If the higher sense of duty had not compelled him ( Mr. Fox) to resign, he had many very powerful in- ducements to keep him- in the Cabinet : he would not say that he was such a stoic as to wish rather to be neg- lected than courted, to prefer poverty, to riches, in- convenience to ease, and obscurity to splendour and power ; but when power, emolument,, celebrity, and ease were to be acquired by a base desertion of princi- ple, an honest man could not hesitate a moment what line of conduct he should pursue.— It was said that he- differed only for shades ;. perhaps to his honourable friend the figure, which to others appeared the most; tremendous monster,. might appear only as a shade ; but to him this seemed of that consequence, as to be decisive of this great question " Whether we shall have peace or war?" And it was not a little strange that the honourable gentleman, by whose vote in, the: Cabinet the question was decided, should have so little penetration as not to discover, that the fate of the- empire, and not a little shade of difference, depended upon his vote. But it was the fate of friend to be last to discover those things which stuck every man alive; and experience ought to have sharpened his penetration. In the year 1766, when his honourable friend had voted for the repeal of the stamp- act, he never dreamt that the idea of taxing America would revive ; he had then the security of al- most every man in the present Cabinet; the present Lord Shelburne was at that time Secretary of State; the then Chancellor had signed a strong protest against taxing America; the Duke of Grafton was at the head of the Treasury ; the characters of all those Mi- nisters were as pledges that the system of taxing Ame- rica was at an end ; but so greatly had his honourable friend been deceived, that he had since been obliged to fight hard, to put an end to a war, entered into solely for the purpose of raising a revenue in America. His efforts had been successful; he had crushed that war; but after he had succeeded, and carried the ad- dress of that House to the foot of the Throne, for put- ting an end to the American war, he was willing to give up the honour of it to the Earl of Shelborne, and to say that it was that noble Lord who had made the King think favourably of the independence of America. That House had spoken out; it had spoken the voice of the people ; and the King must have listened, as no doubt he was well inclined, to their voice. True it was, the Administration, of which he him- self had lately formed a part, was a popular one ; but he could not call it the Earl of Shelburne's Adminis- tration , they did not go into office with him ; he had called upon them, in the name of his Majesty, to invite them to the Cabinet; there was another great character in his Majesty's Council ( the Lord Chancellor) who could not be said to have gone in upon the popular grounds ; that learned Lord had, in conjunction with Lord Shelburne, treated with them, and brought them into the Cabinet. The country had now an Administration, which could not be that popular Administration to which his hon. Friend had alluded ; it was now the Administration of a man who was gigantic in promises, but a pigmy in performance; a man who could not think of re- formation with temper, however loudly he might speak about it; a man who would declare, that the influence of the Crown ought to be diminished, but who would, at the same time say, that the King had a right to use his negative in passing laws, and would threaten with the exercise of that negative all those - who should attempt to move any bills that went to re trenchment: such was the man now at the head of the Treasury. The principles of the late Ministry were now in the Cabinet; and the next thing he should look for, would be to see the late Ministers themselves again in office. He was not to be reasoned out of his senses by his hon. Friend ; for if it was now the intention of the Cabinet, as he said, to grant in- dependence to America, it was an intention very lately adopted ; and he found that he, in fact, had much more weight out of the Cabinet than ever he had in it. He had never before seen the paper from which his hon. Friend had stated his four great prin- ciples ; and therefore he could not be answerable for their contents; but this much he could assure the House, that he differed from the Cabinet on this subject, because he found the majority of them averse to that idea of unconditional independence to Ame- rica, which he conceived it to be necessary to the sal- vation of this country to have granted : if, since he quitted his employment, his late colleagues had changed their opinion, he rejoiced at the event; and would feel himself satsfied, if the sacrifice he had made to his principles should ultimately be service- able to his country. The number of eleven in a Com- mittee of Council, he certainly thought too great; and he was of opinion, that those Minitters who hold great responsible situations, should have more interest in the Cabinet, than those Members of it who attend- ed merely to give counsel, but without holding re- sponsible situations. The principles of the new Ministers would be found • In the end to be precisely the same with those of the Ministers who had been driven out; and he had ra- ther see them supported by the old Ministers than by the new ones : He would draw no comparison between the present First Lord of the Treasury and the predecessor of the noble Marquis:— HE WOULD NOT INSULT FAL- LEN GREATNESS BY THE COMPARISON ; THEIR ABILITIES, THEIR CHARACTERS WERE NOT TO BE COMPARED. He concluded by observing, that he should have been mad indeed, if, having been placed as a watch- man in a tower, he remained an unconcerned specta- tor, while he saw the enemy at work in undermining it, and had not hung out the flag of distress, to warn the people of their danger. He was now about to build a fortress, to which all those might fly who should hereafter find it unsafe to trust their fortunes and characters in the tower from which he had fled ; and he made no doubt but, sooner or later, he should see his honourable friend and others fly to it for shel- ter. Mr. Burke rose next, and after an eloquent speech, in the course of which he observed, that the world • would be satisfied that he did not retire from idle pique, when they were acquainted that a poor man gave up a lucrative office to enjoy narrow circum- stances with an enlarged heart.— I will ask, says he, that gentleman ( Gen. Conway) whether if he had lived in the time of the immortal Cicero, he would have taken Catiline for his colleague in the consul- ship, after he had heard his guilt so clearly proved by that orator. Would he be co- partner with Bor- gia, after he had read his accursed principles in Ma chiavel ? I can answer for him he would not. -- Why then does he adhere to the present men ?— I mean no offence, but I will speak the dictates of an honest mind. If Lord Shelburne be not a Catiline or a Borgia in mo- rals, it must not be ascribed to any thing but his under- standing. -- Under the present baleful influence— an in- fluence if possible more baleful than even the old Ad- ministration, there is every thing to dread. In so disastrous a crisis, a good citizen should remove to a distance, and bewail what be could not help. Mr. Fox, Gen. Conway, Mr. W. Pitt, and Mr. Burke were severally up two or three times to explain and reply to each ether. The houfe adjourned at half after ten. Yesterday, at two o'clock, his Majcfty went in state to the House of Peers, and having passed the Civil List Bill | th* Bill for disciplining Volunteer Corps; the Bill for regulating the Office of Paymaster General of his Majesty's forces; and five other bills, his Majesty made the following most gracious speech: " Lords and Gentlemen, " THE unwearied assiduity with which you have perfe- cted in the discharge of your duty in Parliament, during fo long a session, bears the most honourable testimony to your and industry in the service of the public : for which you ' have provided with the clearest discernment of its true inte- rests; anxiously opening every channel for the return of peace; and furnishing with no less vigilance the means of carrying on the war, if that measure should be unavoidable. " The extensive powers with which I find myself invested to treat for reconciliation and amity with the colonies which have taken arms in North America, I shall continue to em- ^ ploy in the manner most conducive to the attainment of those objects, and with an earnestness suitable to their importance. " The zeal which my subjects in Ireland have expressed for the public service, shews that the liberality of your proceed- ing towards them is felt there as it ought; and has engaged their affections, equally with their duty and interest, in the common cause. " The diligence and ardour, with which you have entered upon 1 he consideration of the British interests in the East In- dies, are worthy of our wisdom, justice, and humanity.— To protect the persons and fortunes of millions in those dis- tant regions, and to combine our prosperity with their hap- piness, are objects which amply repay the utmost exertion. " Gentlemen of the House of Commons, ' I return you my particular thanks for the very liberal supplies which you have granted with so much cheerfulness and zeal for the service of the current year. I reflect with extreme regret upon the heavy expence which the circum- stances of public affairs unavoidablly call for. It shall be my care to husband your means to the best advantage, and, as far as depends on me, to apply that Oeconomy which I have endeavoured tosfet on foot in my civil establishment, to those more extensive branches of public expenditure, in which still more important advantages may be expected. . " My Lords and Gentlemen, ' f The important successes, which, under the favour of Di- vine Providence, the valour of my fleet in the West- Indies hath obtained, promise a favourable issue to our operations in that quarter. The events of war in the East- Indies hare also been prosperous. Nothing however can be more repugnant to my feelings then the long continuance of so complicated a War •• My ardent desire of peace has induced me to take every measure whicb promised the speediest accomplishment of my wishes; and I will continue to exert my best endeavours for that purpose. But if for want of a corresponding disposition in our enemies, I should be disappointed in the hope I enter- tain of a speedy termination of the calamities of war, I rely on the spirit, affection, and unanimity of my Parliament and people to support. the honour of my crown, and the interests of my kingdom; not doubting that, the blessing of Heaven, which I devoutly implore upon our arms, employed as they are in our just and necessary defence, will enable me to obtain fair and reasonable terms of pacification. The most triumphant career of victory, would not excite me to aim at more ; and I have the satisfaction to be able, to add, that I see no reason which should induce me to think of accepting less.". , Then the Lord Chancellor, by his Majesty's command, said, My Lord, and Gentlemen, It is his Majesty's royal will and pleasure, That this Parlia- ment be prorogued to Tuesday the third of September next, to be then here holden ; and this Parliament is accordingly pro- rogued to Tuesday the third of Septemher next.

' Yesterday the E 0 table bill was thrown over the table at the House of Commons, on account of alte- rations made to it by the House of Peers. . Friday night Lord Howe's squadron came into this bay, having been obliged to put back by contrary winds. The fog was so exceedingly thick that the whole fleet had a very narrow escape from being wrecked. It consists of 22 sail of the line, three fri- gates, one fire- ship, and three cutters from the West- ward. The Raisonable, which was the leading ship, was within a cable's length of the bolt head, with the wind right upon the shore, before she perceived it, and had she missed stays, she must inevitably have been dashed to pieces on the rocks. She immediately made the signal of danger, and the rest of the fleet, which were a little to windward, tacked just in time to save themselves^ • " On Sunday the whole fleet sailed again to the Westward, with the wind at E. S. E." A fine new ship of 4.4. guns, commanded by Capt. King, the circumnavigator with the late Capt. Cook, was launched yesterday at Deptford ; she is called the Resistance, and carries her guns on two decks. The Lord Chancellor has presented the Rev.

Not satisfied it was doing justice to my character, I called the officers of the garrison present, the militia officers, and the principal inhabitants, who were unanimous in their opi- nion, that to make a defence of a few hours would not entitle them from the Governor but to termsof discretion. X have the honor to be, & c. New Providence, May 14, 1782. JOHN MAXWELL. New Providence, May 14, 178e. MY LORD, ' THE Spanish troops under the command of Don Juan Ma- nuel Cagigal were the second division going to the Cape, in order to join their first under the command of Don Galvez; but as they had no transports of their own, they wisely laid an embargo, by which means they procured a sufficient num- ber from the Americans who readily hired their vessels to gi against Providence at their own risk. However the Spanish General disappointed them exceedingly in not including them in the capitulation, and now compels them to proceed further, paying them as transports. , Jamaica was the original object, and we might have escaped a visit, had not the winds, and the assurances given them by several cf our own inhabitants, who were employed by government in flags of truce, of the facility cf reducing this place, joined to the consideration of the risk of the vessels being on the American account, induced them to malce the attempt, in which they have been too suc- eessful, but I am certain they adhere to their first intention of attempting Jamaica. immediately on my arrival I gave your Lordship my opinion of the inhabitants, and the strength requisite to keep the island in order. In the Council of war, consisting of the militia officers and principal inhabitants, there were 33 unanimously of opinion to capitulate. , 1 have the honor to be, & c. JOHN MAXWELL. Right Hon.

Hereford, July 4 Whitehall, July 13. The King has been pleazed to con- stitute the. Right Hon. William Earl of Shelburne of the kingdom < sf Ireland, Knight of the mozt noble order of the Garter, the Right . Hon. William Pitt, James Grenville, Richard Jackson, and Edward James Elliot, Esquires, to be Commissioners for executing the office of Treasurer of his Majesty's Exchequer. The King hajs been pleased to grant to the Right Hon William Pitt, the offices of Chancellor and Under Treasurer of his Majesty's Exchequer. . . .. , - i- - The King has been pleased to constitute and appoint. the Right Hon. Augustus Viscount Keppel, Sir Robert Harland, Bart. Admiral Hugh Pigot, Charles Brett, Richard Hop- kins, John Jefferies Pratt, and John Aubrey, Esqrs. to be his Majesty's Commissioners far executing the office of Lord High Admiral of the kingdoms of Great Britain and Ireland, and of the dominions, islands, and territories thereunto re- spectively belonging. The King has been pleased to constitute and appoint the Right Hon. Sir George Yonge, Bart, to be his Majesty's Se- cretary at War. - . , The King has been pleased to appoint David Parry, Esq; to be Captain General and Governor in Chief of the Island of Barbadoes, in the room of Major- General James Cunning- hame. The King has been pleased to appoint Archibald Campbell, Esq; to be Captain- General and Governor in Chief of the Island, of Jamaica, in the room of Major- General John Dal- ling, The King has been pleased to appoint John Parr, Esq; to be Captain- General and Governor in Chief of the Province of Nova Scotia, in the room of Francis Legge, Esq. Yesterday Capt. Deake, commander of the Vigilant, arrived at the Admiralty with dispatches from Admi- ral Rodney and Governor Campbell at Jamaica : he sailed from Bluefields in company with the home- ward- bound fleet, and parted from them on the 9th of June, clear of the Gulph. He brings advice that there were only two sail of the line left at the Ha- vannah, and that Don Solano's squadron, with the remaining part of De Grasse's fleet, were yet lying at Cape Francois. A very large fleet of merchant- men sailed from the Havannah, under a very weak convoy, just before they passed it. Many of the ships were very valuable that were bound to Europe. A re- port prevailed at Jamaica, just before they left the island, that Admiral Hood had fell in with an out- ward- bound Dutch fleet that was going to Curacoa, and captured several of them. Admiral Rodney, in his dispatches observes, that from several corroborat- ing circumstances, he has every reason to believe the St. Esprit, of 80 guns, sunk a few days after the ac- tion. De Grasse is on board the Sandwich, coming home with Sir Peter Parker. , , This day advice was received at Lloyd's that the Emperor and the Wiltshire, two ships from Jamaica, were safe arrived in the Downs. Tho' they sailed two days after the fleet, and came through the Gulph, they saw nothing of the fleet. The fleet which sailed from Jamaica under convoy of the Sandwich, Russel, Intrepid, and Pomona men of war on the 25th of May, were left on the 9th of June near the Gulph, and consisted of 100 sail as fol- lows :— For London, 42 j Bristol, 21Liverpool, 16 ; Gtafgow, Sj Portfmouth, 2; Ireland, 2; Lan- casterr 1 ; America, 8. The force with which Admiral Graves sailed from Port Royal, Jamaica, was several sail of the line, and three frigates -. There was no doubt of its being des- tined against Curacoa. The Admiral had his flag in the London, of 90 guns. A dispute has arisen bctween Sir Guy Carleton and General Washington, and is as follows A board of refugees, it seems, had been for some time past formed at New- york, consisting of about 400 people, under the command of Governor Franklin. The point in- sisted upon by these men, who had their commission.'- from Sir Henry Clinton, was, that they should be controuled by their own laws, subject, however, in their military services, to Sir Henry Clinton. A- mongst other exploits, which these people performed, was the attack of a block- house, which Gen. Wash- ington had erected, and which they carried, killing every man found in it, except three, whom they brought away as prisoners of' war. Among these was a Captain Huddy, whom they carried at first on board a vessel, where he was closely confined for up- wards of three weeks, He was then taken on shore, under pretence of being exchanged, but was in fact forced to the first tree that could be found, on which he was hung ' till he was dead, without any trial, or charge made against him. Upon this being related General Washington, he immediately wrote to Sir Henry Clinton, insisting upon it, that Capt. Lippen- court, by whole order Capt. Huddy was hung, should be executed by way of retaliation, , Sir Henry Clinton upon this, directed a court- martial to be held upon Capt. Lippencourt, and when Sir Guy Carleton ar- rived at New- York, the court martial was sitting; but as his appointment superseded Sir Henry Clinton's, the court- martial broke up without coming to any de- termination. General Waihington upon this, wrote to Sir Guy Carleton on the subject, and informed him, that unless Capt. Lippencourt was hanged, he would have one of the British officers in his possession executed for Capt. Huddy, and that he had caused the British officers, his prisoners, to cast lots which of them should suffer. We are very sorry to find, that it has fallen to the lot of a Capt. Asgyll ; and when the last accounts left New- York, Gen. Wash- ington bad determined that he should suffer death, unless the satisfaction he required was made ; and that he would also retaliate by every other means in his power. The Congress refuse to treat with Gen. Carleton. They will not allow even a passport to the General's secretary to present his papers to them. They declare they will receive no terms of pacification, but through the medium of France. Sir Guy Carleton has, during the short period of his arrival at New- York, actually made reductions and reforms to the annual amount of 500,000l. Yesterday a new writ was issued for electing a Mem- ber for Calne, in Wiltshire, in the. room of Isaac Barre, Esq appointed Paymaster- General of the Forces, Pepper Arden, sfq; of the Middle- Temple, is ap- pointed to succeed to the Solicitor- Generalship, vacant by the resignation of Mr. Lee. Mr. Ord is appointed by Lord Shelburne to be his Chief Secretary. Never were the gentlemen of the long robe so tossed about by political changes as of late; Mr. Mansfield, on the late change, returned to the western circuit, and Mr. Burke quitted it;-- Mr. Pitt, in the present change, quits it, and Mr. Burke returns to it.-— Mr. Adams is just out of the ordnance, and goes the northern circuit.-— Mr. Lee goes the same circuit, and lays down the Solicitor- Generalship, which Mr. Arden takes up, and quits the circuit.--- Mr. Wallis resumes his station on that circuit, having resigned, on the late change, the office of Attorney- General. A letter from Falmouth mentions the agreeable news of the Aurora frigate; of 28. guns, having taken and carried into St. Ives the Madame, of 44 guns, aftera severe action in which the Aurora had seven killed, and nine wounded; the enemy's loss is very considerable. The same letter mentions the arriva of a packet from New- York in 19 days. BANKRUPTS.

Jurors not attending will be fined, Extract of a letter from Cheltenham, July 13. . .." Oh Tuefday last Lord Viscount Kingsland gave an elegant entertainment and fete champetre to a very numerous and genteel company here. At eight o'clock they met at: Mrs. Field's rooms to drink tea, & c. Between nine and ten they attended his Lord- ship to the public walks, which were finely decorated with grand arches, illuminated with a variety of dif- ferent coloured lamps, which had a fine effect. The two public rooms were alfo decorated with festoons and wreaths of flowers, and grandly illuminated,. In the large room was a concert of vocal and instru- mental music; and Mrs. Watson, in the character, of Diana, with her bow ahd quiver, sung a hunting; song with great applause. The ball then, began ;' and about one the company were summoned to an elegant cold collation of every delicacy in season, and a side- board of excellent wines.-— The company did not breakup ' till three o'clock, highly pleased with the great hofpitality, and polite attention of the noble Lord." . . We hear from. Cardiff, in Glamorganshire, that great sport is expected there at the ensuing races, ( which begin the 31st instant). Many horses being in training, and several very capital ones expected to enter for the different purses and cup." The race ground is in excellent order, and proper attention paid to render every thing convenient and agreeable in the town to the company, which is expected to be very numerous and splendid. A gentleman who was of a party on Tuesday night last at the Taylors- Hall, Bristol, to see the famous Boaz's exhibitions of his new invented deceptions, informs us, the great success of this ingenious artist is by no means to be wondered at, for that his deceptions on cards, valuable rings, medals, watches, & c. are truely amazing, but that his method of telling persons their real thoughts is astonishing beyond conception. It is expected he will pay a visit to this city after leaving Bristol. The following came too late to be added to Mr. Miles's Advertisement in the first Page.—— T. Miles hopes, that as his professional Connection re- quires his Presence in London. Gentlemen will excuse any further Application for the present, but he will certainly return to the Country previous to the Election. Advertisements omitted this week will be inserted in our next.

Chew, Bristol. #% The Publisher of thir Work thinks it unnecessry to observe,. that it could not be completed in less than 100 Num- bers 5 considering the Largeness. and Beauty of the Type, the unavoidable Length of the Notes, and the necessary Indexes of every material Transaction recorded in the Sacred Oracles, from the whole of which we- may prefume to affert, that the Rev. Dr. Southwell's Family Biblesftands alone unequalled. i; 4- t The Copper- Plates in other Works of this Nature having, been more a Difgrace, than an Embelliflirnent, we have totally obviated that Imperfection, by employing the mod admired Artifts in the Kingdom, whereby they juflly correfpond with the Dignity and Elegance of the Work they are intended to embellilli; and which, from the very great Expence in Drawings, Paintings, Engravings, & c. have cod- upwards of Two Thousand Pounds. We would have given a List of the Copper- Plates with which this Work is adorned, but the'Subjects and Beaaties of them are. fo great, that to defcribs them in fuch a Manner as to convey a proper Idea of their Excellencies, would, inftead of being contained in an Advertisement, extend to a whole Side of a Newspaper. t* t The Advantages which this Work has over any si- milar Publication, will appear very obvious to every attentive Reader. Besides the superior Elegaace of the Size, Paper, Print, and Copper- plates, there will also be given a greater Quantity of Letter- Press, and on a larger Letter, than in any other Bible, three whole Sheets being to be given in every Number at the same Price. The whole of this Work being just printed off, may be had complete in One Hundred Numbers, Price Fifty Shillings, or elegantly bound in Calf^ Two Pounds Eighteen Shillings'.' As the Work, themfore, is thoroughly compleated, the Public may ealily perceive there cannot be any possible Im- position hereafter, with regard to the Largeness and Unifor- mity of the Lester, gee. as has been to often the Case in Pub- lications of. a similar Nature; and that, upon the whole, it will be the most elegant and superb Edition of the HOLY BIBLE ever yet offered to the Public. To prevent Mistakes, pray be careful to ask for the Rev. Dr. Southwell's Universal Family Bible, which the Public may depend is executed throughout in as elegant a Manner as that juftly efteemed and much admiied Work, entituled, '' be New Book of Martyrs, written by the same Antbor.

To remedy this Inconvenience and real Hardship, Messrs. SHARMAN and Co. Have adopted a Plan for the Purchasers el whole Tickets, and also a Scheme of Chances more advantageous than Shares of four Times their Price, at HALF- A- CROWN, SIX SHILLINGS', and HALF- A- GUINEA each, by which lat- ter the capital Sum of TEN THOUSAND- POUNDS will be gained.
