MORTON, Secretary. LONDON, OCTOBER I ESTERDAY morning their Majesties and the two eldest Princesses came in one of the Queen's coaches and six from Windsor to Kew. The King arrived from Kew at St James's soon after twelve o'clock. The levee began before one, and was over in an hour. After the levee broke up, a Coun- cil was held in the Great Council Chamber, at which were present the Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Chancellor, Secretaries of State, Secretary at War, Lord Chamberlain, Lord Steward, Deputy Comptroller, and Mr Fawkener, Clerk of the Council. The Council closed at three o'clock.— Mr Pitt arrived after the Council was over, and, with the Duke of Leeds and Sir G. Yonge, held audiences with the King till four o'clock, when, his Majesty set off to Kew to dinner. The following intelligence was received by one of the Foreign Ministers yesterday from Brussels, and we therefore present it to the public, as an ar- ticle 011 which the most implicit confidence maybe placed. It is dated Brussels, Oct. 9. The moment of the Grand Revolution approach- es fast, and perhaps it will take place in a few hours. The country is in most dreadful agitation ; Government has already taken the precaution to remove the Royal Treasury, and the archives of Government, as well as all the costly furniture of the Archduke and Duchess, out of the town.— They are sent off to Vienna under a strong guard. The treasuries of the province are likewise secu- red ; it is, however, doubtful whether they will be soon enough to get past the frontiers before the revolution takes place. The Archbishop of Malines has been put under arrest at Brussels, as well as the Bishop of Ant- werp. Several other persons have been served in like manner, but Government dare not execute any one for fear of retribution. The Imperial Minister at Paris has demanded the succour of 24,000 men from the Court of France. The latter has referred him to the National Assem- bly, which began by asking the Minister for the 70 millions which the Emperor was indebted to France. Any succour from this quarter is, there- fore, not to be expected. The eyes of the belligerent powers are now turned upon the siege of Belgrade ; much depends upon the issue, and therefore we may expect the attack will be carried on with vigour, and the de- fence supported with resolution. The Russians have boasted of a complete victory in their last naval engagement with the Swedes ; yet the latter are again at sea, to dispute the lau- rel with the Prince of Nassau. It is rumoured that overtures have been made by the people to the Duke of Brunswick to be their head. If this report be true, there is no doubt but the appointment would meet with the counte- nance of the Kings of Prussia and Great Britain ; as well as a design said to be formed by the Bra- banters of re- establishing their ancient form of go- vernment, and to make a federative alliance with the United Provinces. We learn from Madrid, that the King of Spain has ordered a nine day's supplication to Heaven ( neuvaine) over all his dominions, praying that the Almighty would be pleased to frustrate and con- found all those counsels which tend to the humilia- tion of the monarchial power in France. NATIONAL ASSEMBLY. October 8. On account of the indisposition of the President, M. Chapelier presided. Some members appeared very uneasy at the menacing threats that had been held against several of their body, when the Abbe Gregoire observed, that such threats were only made by people whose ignorance ought rather to be pitied, and the cla- mours despised. The order of the day being moved, the follow- ing articles passed almost without a debate : " The legislative body shall prelent its decrees to the King, either separately as they are decreed or altogether at the end of the sessions." " The royal consent shall be expressed to each decree with this formula, signed by the King's own hand writing— The King consents, and will order to be executed. The suspensive refusal shall be expres- sed in this manner—' the King will examine." The following article gave rise to a very animat- ed discussion— " After having consented to the decree, the King shall order the Great Seal to be put on it, and it shall be addressed to all tbe tribunals, admi- nistrative bodies, and municipalities, for it to be transcribed in their registers, and to be read, pu- blished, and executed by them, without delibera- tion, difficulty, or delays" Many members here took occasion to demand a formula to all edicts, which should point out the legislative right of the nation. M. Dupont wished the laws should be presented to the people, under the title of national decrees. M. Froteau proposed this formula— Louis, by the Grace of God, and the Law of the Constitution, King of France. It is necessary, says he, that the legal character belonging to the nation should be expres- sed in the law. The name of the National Assem- bly, as well as the King's, must be seen in it. He wished there should be a national seal. M. Petion de Villeneuve, with more haste than judgment, attacked the expression of Louis, by the Grace of God, with great bitterness. He said it was perfectly ridiculous, since the King only held his power by the grace of the people. On a general mur- mur being heard at this sort of language, M. Pe- tion observed, that he wondered the Assembly should be choaked at such simple ideas, and request- ed to know whether Kings were instituted by the gods or the people. The Count de Mirabeau defended the expression of by the Grace of God, and pointed out the impos- sibility of a misinterpretation, as the legislative right of the nation had been determined. The words, by the Grace of God, were only the proper homage due to the divinity. If Kings held their power from God, the people likewise held their liberty from the same power. After some further debate, the article of the form to precede all decrees, was passed in the fol- lowing words: " Louis, by the Grace of God, King of French- men, to all present and to come— Greeting— the National Assembly has decreed, and we will and order what follows." The following letter was received from the King: " Gentlemen, " The instances of attachment and fidelity which I have received from my good city of Paris, and the invitation of the Commons, have determined me to fix my permanent abode there ; and in the confidence which I have, that you will not separate from me, I invite you to chuse Commissioners to select the most proper place for the National As- sembly to sit in. I shall give the necessary orders to prepare it. I shall facilitate and expedite the measures which mutual confidence may require. Louis." This letter occasioned some debate, and some members argued against their removal to Paris. , It was put to the voicc, and by a great majority it was decided that they should remove to Paris, conformably to their declaration to the King. Commissioners were named to make known this resolution to the King, and chuse a place. FRENCH SERVANTS. The servants in Paris are going to set a laudable example to the more wealthy members of the com- munity, of public spirit and liberality. They have resolved to raise, for the public use, the fum of one million of livres, or about forty thousand guineas, by contributions among them- selves, in the following manner . They compute the number of servants of both sexes in Paris at 150,000. Of these they consider one third as unable to spare from their scanty wages any thing for the relief of the public. The other two thirds, or 100,000 persons, they propose, shall raise the whole sum of 1,000,000 livres, by a voluntary contribution of ten livres each. They have already prevailed upon M. Dossant, a notary public, to receive their subscriptions. It was thought by many, that even the poorest of the 50,000 servants thought too poor to contri- bute any thing, would still make some offering to the state, and that some of the others giving more than ten livres, the sum thus raised would turn out to be nearer two millions than one. The idea of the National Assembly of France, in substituting the words, King of Frenchmen, instead of King of France, has been adopted as the faithful translation of the ancient title, Rex Francorum, which expresses the idea of King of the Franks, or Freemen. This distinction seems to annihilate the preten- sions which former Kings claimed, who held it as a maxim, that the King was the proprietor of the lands as well as the crown of the kingdom. There were reports in town yesterday of the ex- tinction of another dukedom, by the death of his Grace the Duke of Bolton, without male issue. The last account of the Contractor East India- man was brought by the Asia, which arrived the 22d of August last ; she spoke with the said ship on the 29th of April, in the Straits of Sunda, all well. A remarkable animal has arrived from India in one of the Company's ships; its fore part is like that of a fox— its hinder that of a bear. It was but the other day that the Pais Bas were over- run with Dutch fugitives, and now they are overflowing with French ; yet their own situation is very critical, for an inhabitant of Brussels assures us, that a very few days will determine whether the edicts of the Emperor or the will of the people are to prevail. Now the people of Paris have got the King and Queen in their custody, it will be impossible for the Emperor, or any other potentate, to assist them with troops. The King was exceedingly alarmed, and the seeming indifference in which the Queen passed from Versailles to Paris was not fortitude, but a void sensation, like a criminal going to exe- cution. So many have been the changes of national man- ners in France, since the great revolution began, that, viewing the French according to the ideas formerly entertained of them, one cannot recog- nize the polite Frenchmen, or Frenchwomen, in a mob of people taking off heads, and hanging up every person they conceived to be obnoxious to their political interests. A correspondent says he trembles for the fate of France, now that the women have taken to arms — For though he cannot allow Frenchmen, with all their urbanity, to be a humane people, he thinks the female canaille much worse. By a private letter from Bourdeaux there is ad- vice, that the vintage has this year almost entirely failed in France. From the ill of August to the 15th of September the weather was as fine as could possibly be wished, and the people were flattered with the hopes of a most plentiful vintage ; but from that day it changed to the most violent and continued rains and storms, which have totally de- stroyed their fond expectations ; infomuch, that, on the 27th of September, there was not, in the environs of Bourdeaux, a bunch of grapes fit for the table ; and it was much feared that the remnant which the raging tempests had spared would never be thoroughly ripened. On Saturday last the Magistrates for the Tower Royalty Division, assembled in their Michaelmas Quarter Sessions, at the Court House, in Well- close- square, were applied to by Mr Steel, of New- ington, for a licence to open the Royalty Theatre, agreeably to the act of the 25th Geo. II. Mr Steel stated himself to be the purchaser; and the Magistrates, being satisfied with his title, grant- ed the licence. LLOYD'S MARINE LIST, OCTOBER I6. Ramsgate, OCt. 14.

The Marquis de Mirabeau rose, and made a com- plaint against the Count de St Priest, respecting an expression of that Minister, which the Marquis said might be attended with the most serious con- sequences. When the body of 5000 women from Paris, em- ployed in the late revolution, reached Versailles, to demand a supply of bread, they waited on the Count de St Priest, and made him acquainted with their errand. The Minister immediately made them the following answer— " Ladies, When you had only one King, you did not want bread. Now that you have twelve hundred Kings, you are starving It is to them you must ap- ply for bread." The Marquis de Mirabeau concluded his com- plaint, by moving that it should be referred to the Committee of Inquiry. The Assembly appeared to be deeply impressed with the idea that such language from a Minister was highly improper ; but did not think proper, however, to refer the complaint to the Committee, without some further consideration. M. NECKER'S REFORM. The Assembly has approved, in toto, M. Neck- er's projected reform, as mentioned in his speech on the state of the finances, and published its reso- lutions respecting the contribution of the quarter of each man's income, excepting those below 16l. 13s. 4d. per annum, and those of working men and day labourers. The saving in the different departments are— French Livres In the War Department, - 20,000,000 \ In that of Foreign Affairs, 1,000,000 In the King's and Prince's Household, 8,000,000 In the Pension List, independent of the reduction in 1788, - - 6,000,000 The suppression of the Haras, 814,000 35,814,000 Equal to 1,492,250!. sterling, besides the sup- pression of 104,0001. paid annually to the clergy, and the taxation of property formerly exempted from paying duties, See. Paris, October 12. The King has appointed the Marquis de la Fayette, Commander in Chief of all the troops within a circle of fifteen leagues of the capital. A considerable sum is given by Government, at the instance of the Queen, for redeeming the cloaths of the poor people who had pawned them at the Mont de Piete for sums not exceeding 24. livres. The concourse of persons which this brought together at this office, has occasioned great alarms, not only for the safety of the magazine, but for Paris in general. On which account there is a continued patrole in almost every street, night and day. A conspiracy has been discovered, which, from the persons concerned in it, must be of a serious nature, though the object of it is not yet ascer- tained. Ten persons, most of them of great di- stinction, are arrested ; and fifteen thousand uni- forms made to resemble those of Paris and Ver- sailles, have been found in their apartments, toge- ther with a list of many other persons concerned in the same affair. On this account, no body can go out of Paris without a passport, and the letters, even of the members of the Assembly, have been opened at the Post Office. The opinion of the provinces respecting the King's removal from Versailles to Paris is not yet known ; but there is great reason to fear they will not be very favourable to that measure. In short, every thing announces some alarming circumstance ; from the beginning of the troubles to this hour, no point of time has presented so tre- mendous a prospect. Orders are given for using the utmost severity against the distributors of seditious papers. The heralds have proclaimed publicly in Paris a pro- hibition against mobs, and have authorised the mi- litary to disperse them. Since the Royal Family's removal to the Thuil- leries, they have been pestered daily with addres- ses and congratulations from all ranks of people, though God knows how heavy it must lie on their heart. The low Billingsgate and fruit- women have even insisted on an audience, and have waited on the Queen with their congratulation— those women who a few nights before attempted to murder her. To these commands her Majefty was constrained to accede. It is almost needless to add, that the Queen seemed unusually terrified while in their company. On their being introduced, a young person, whom they had cholen for their President, addressed the Queen, and demanded the pardon of all the pri- soners in the gaols, not malefactors, as well as all deserters. The Prince de Luxembourg, who was present, then stepped forward, and, 111 the name of the Queen, asked in exchange the forgiveness of the fugitive Princes, viz. the Count d'Artois, and the Princes de Conde and Conti, which was agreed to with great acclamation and joy. The fair Presi- dent of this troop appeared so pretty, that his Ma- jesty kissed her on retiring 1 It is hardly probable that the Princes of the Blood will think proper to return to France on such slight authority, or even on any authority what- ever. The National Assembly seem to, go on in the same slow, unmeaning manner, as they have done almost since the first day of meeting. While the nation is in the most horrid state of anarchy, from one end to the other, and even the lives of the Members of the Legislative body in the most im- minent danger of assassination, the National As- sembly wastes its time in foolish insignificant ques- tions, which are a disgrace to its own importance. Their Majesties were at the Theatre de Monsieur last night. The house was crouded, and both King and Queen well received. It was no doubt meant as complimentary to her Majesty, that the audience desired her to take off her hat, which she most wil- lingly complied with. AUSTRIAN NETHERLANDS. The ten provinces of the Austrian Netherlands would, in all probability, have thrown themselves into the arms of France, as soon as that great people have settled their constitution. Justly sick of their alliance with the Emperor, they would have cheerfully accepted them. England and Holland could not foresee this pro- bable event unconcerned— Prussia was easily made a party, from obvious motives. These three powers have therefore determined to give independence to the Netherlands, upon condition, That the Dutch barrier towns shall be restored ; and, That the Scheldt shall be kept shut. This stipulation, equally interesting to England as to Holland, is, we understand, agreed to by the patriots, and it will be formed into a limited mo- narchy— to be given either to the Duke of Bruns- wick, or Duke D'Areinberg. Its independence to be guaranteed by the three powers. The troops of Holland have marched to the frontier; not apparently to act, but to be ready. The Imperial troops do not amount to more than 10,000 ; but the little dependant Princes of Ger many, the Duke de Wirtemberg, the Prince of Hesse Darmstadt, have threatened to march. We wish they may. A general desertion will be the consequence. It is thought the revolution will be accomplished without a general war ; but, if not, we are in- volved and We must march. The public may depend on this statement. Extract of a letter from Brussels, Oct. 10. " We have received from Vienna authentic infor- mation of a signal victory obtained on the 22d of last month, by the combined Austrian army under the Prince de Cobourg, and that of Russia under General Suwarow, over the Grand Visir's army at Martinestie on the river Kaminieck, in Walachia. The enemy, whose force consisted of between 80 and 100,000 men, left upwards of four thousand slain upon the field of battle, and 31 were made prisoners. The conquerors took eighty pieces of cannon, and their loss does not exceed an hundred men killed and wounded. " Capt. Hartmuller, who delivered the particu- lars of the above important victory to his Imperial Majesty, at the fame time communicated to him that the army under Prince Repnin had gained a complete victory over the Seraskier Hassan Pacha, near Toboh in Bessarabia. At the particular re- commendation of the Prince de Cobourg, his Ma- jesty has promoted Captain Hartmuller to the rank of Major." Wednesday the Earl of Westmoreland was by his Majesty's command sworn of his Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, and took his place at • the Board accordingly. Same day his Majesty in Council was pleased to appoint the Earl of Westmorland Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and his Lordship took the usual oaths on that appointment. Yesterday the Parliament, which stood prorogued to the 29th instant, was, by his Majesty in Council, further prorogued to the 10th of December. A new arrangement of the Commissioners of the Navy Board, 0n the proposition of Sir Charles Middleton, has been submitted to the Admiralty, and it is thought will be adopted. The King did not hunt on Tuesday. Two mes- sengers arrival with dispatches prevented his join- ing the chace. The prodigious quantity of rain that has fallen lately, is a great bar to sportsmen— Hunting and shooting wait for a period of more dry and open weather. Canvassing, as it is called, is the only business our great men are now employed about in the coun- try ; and, from their affability, politeness, ease, and good nature, one would think them the sweet- est tempered souls in the world. They promise won- ders, and many of them think they can perform wonders. A Methodist preacher, at Aylesbury, lately told his congregation that two eggs were enough for any pudding, three too much, and four an abomi- nation tO the Lord. ' DIED. Wednesday morning, at two o'clock, after a long and most afflicting illness, Mrs Lascelles ( formerly Miss Catley), wife of General Lascelles. EDINBURGH. This day his Majesty's prize was shot for on Burntsfield Links by the Royal Company of Archers, and won by Robert Kerr, Esq; surgeon in Edinburgh. Among the members who attended were his Grace the Duke of Buccleugh, Earl of Hopetoun, Earl of Morton, Lord Elihank, Lord Ancrum, Sir James Pringle, & c. & c. The Company afterwards dined together at their Hall. We hear that, in compliance with the reigning taste for uniforms, the ladies at the balls of the pre- sent week are to be ornamented with the device of the Caledonian Hunt, elegantly embroidered in soil, on sashes and bandeaus. A number of them, admirably executed, have been received frOm Lon- don for the occasion. This day arrived in town, at Walker's Hotel, Princes Street, their Graces the Duke and Duchess of Buccleugh and family, Duke of Montague, Archibald Douglas, Esq. Lady Frances Douglas, Lord and Lady Morton, & c. See. We are desired to acquaint the public, particu- larly the seat holders in the Tron Church, that that church will be opened for divine service on Sunday next, the 25th current. The Highland Reel, petformed on Saturday, at the theatre here, like all O'Keefe's pieces, abounds with whim and absurdity. The characters ( who by the by might with equal propriety be called Dutch as Scotch) were in general well supported, and the music is so sweet and agreeable, and some of the situations so truly laughable, that it will most probably have a run here Miss Fontenelle was received with much and deserved applause. Wilson, Bell, and Mrs Taylor also deferve to be mentioned ; the latter particularly for her agreeable singing, and her easy and unaffected deportment. Died, at Salton, on Friday the 16th ult. Mr John Brown, much and justly regreted by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. This day a person, for a Considerable wager, un- dertook to walk nine miles, within an hour and a half, on the road from Leith to Cramond. It is not yet determined. • Extract of a letter from Dublin, Oct. 13. " Tuesday, at evening tide, the Princess Mary, Captain M'Dowgal, from Jamaica for Port Glas- gow, arrived off the harbour of Waterford, all well, after a tedious and stormy passage of forty- seven days. She parted with eleven other West- India- men from different islands, about ten days ago, in a hard gale, at the entrance of the channel, so that the arrival of the whole fleet may be expected in the course of the ensuing week. " We hear from Castlerea, that on Wednesday last, a most melancholy and much lamented accident happened in that town :— Cornet John Roe, of the 8th Light Dragoons, quartered there, was thrown from his horse, and was so severely bruised that he survived but a very few hours." Monday the 42d, or Royal Highland Regiment, ( commonly called the Old Highland Watch) com- manded by Lord John Murray, arrived at Newcastle,, and on Wednesday marched down to Tynemouth Barracks, to replace the 29th regiment of foot, commanded by the Right Hon. the Earl of Har- rington, which regiment that day proceeded on their route to Dover, in Kent. Sunday the celebrated veteran pedestrian, Donald M'Leod, arrived in Newcastle, on his route from St James's to the Highlands. Induced by curiosity, several gentlemen visited him during his short stay here ; and his astonishing hilarity of disposition and healthful appearance fully gratified his very nu- merous visitants. Friday se'ennight, the wind being very high, three ships were driven on shore at the entrance of Sunderland harbour, one of which was got off on Monday, and it is hoped the others will be got into the river in the course of a few tides. Last week the Fishburn, Brown, of London, laden with coals from Newcastle to the Thames, was wrecked upon the Gun- fleet. The crew were saved, but the vessel totally lost. Wednesday, being the General Quarter Sessions, Newcastle, the grand jury certified the prices of corn as follow :-— Wheat, per bushel, ( Winchester measure) 5s. 6| d.— Rye, 3s. ixd.— Barley, 2s 9d.— Malt, 4s. 10s.— Oats, is. I lid White Pease, 3s. 9d.— Grey Pease, 3s. 3d.— Beans, 3s 3d. The Diana, Campbell, from Leith to London, arrived at Gravesend the 16th instant. Ink Spots.— A correspondent has sent this re- medy : He says it is effectual. Dip the spotted linen in the melting of a mould tallow candle, then wash it, and the spots disappear. AN INGENIOUS WAy Of RAISING MONEY ! About thirty years back, two young fellows ( brothers) went to Jamaica : They were by trade blacksmiths. Finding soon after their arrival, that they could do nothing without a little money to begin with ; but that with 60I. or 70I. they might be able, with the aid of that and industry, to make a fortune, they hit upon the following novel and ingenious expedient:— One of them stripped the other naked ; shaved him close, and blakened him from head to foot.— The ceremony being perform- ed, he took him to one of the negro dealers, who, after viewing and approving, advanced ( he being a fine stout young fellow) 80I. currency upon the bill of sale, and prided himself much upon the pur- chase, supposing him the finest negro on the island. The same evening this new- manufactured negro made his escape to his brother ; washed himself clean, and resumed his former appearance.— Re- wards were in vain offered in hand- bills: Pursuit was eluded ; and discovery, by care and precaution, rendered impracticable. The brothers with the money commenced busi- ness, and actually returned to England not many years since, with a fortune of 20, oool.— Previous, however, to their departure from the island, they waited upon the gentleman of whom they had re- . ceived the money, and recalling the circumstance of the negro to his recollection, paid him principal and interest with thanks. This story is well known, and well attested in the island. SHIP NEWS. ARRIVED AT GREENOCK. OCt. 7. Aurora, Makins, St Domingo, sugar— 14.
