SIEGE OF MENTZ. JOURNAL OF THE OPERATIONS. July 8.— Yesterday an order was given to pre- pare for dislodging the French garrison from Cost- heim. The attack was made at ten at night, and the cannonade was the heaviest heard since the com- mencement of the siege. A shower of shells and grenades was discharged against the chapel of Cost- heim, and the redoubts. During this time the Ger- mans surrounded the place, and cut the advanced posts in pieces. The combat continued till two o' clock this morning, when the French betook them- selves to flight. Between three and four hundred men, several of whom had concealed themselves in the cellars, were made prisoners. The streets of Costheim were strewed with dead bodies. The loss of the Germans, who took possession also of two re- doubts near Costheim, is unknown. The French still occupied those at the point of the Rhine ; the Ger- mans, however, having attacked them this day, these were also abandoned. July 9.— This day the French prisoners taken at Costheim were sent to Frankfort; they were in num ber about 138, five of whom are officers. July 10.— This day the wounded prisoners were also conveyed to Frankfort— they were conveyed by water. A valet de chambre, named Schul, who conducted the Imperialists to Costheim, received a reward of ten caroluses. Our troops, in that at- tack, took eight pieces of cannon, with some cais- sons of powder and draught horses. BRUSSELS GAZETTE. EXTRAORDINARY, JULY 12. & 15. OFFICIAL ACCOUNT OF THE OPERATIONS OF THE COMBINED ARMY beFORe VALENCIENNES. Head Quarters General at Herin, July II. This day the town of Conde surrendered by ca- pitulation. A part of the corps who blockaded this place, under the command of his Serene High- ness the Prince of WURTEmBURG, took possession of the out- works, advanced forts, and redoubts, and even of the draw- bridge of the gate which leads towards Tournay. Agreeable to the capitulation, the 4009 men who composed the garrison, are to go out from Conde on the morning of the 13th with the honours of war, but when they come to the glacis, they are to lay down their arms and remain prisoners. The siege of Valenciennes is still carried on with vigour, and notwithstanding the efforts made by the garrison to oppose it, we lose very few men, as we are not obliged to hurry our works and at- tacks; it is impossible for the armies of the enemy to relieve the place, which gives us time to spare our people. The night between the 8th and 9th was employ- ed in completing the batteries of the third parallel, in establishing two new ones, and to form the com- munications. In the day- time the workmen conti- nued to enlarge the excavations. The violent fir- ing which the enemy continually kept up during the night with their cannon and mortars, as well as with their musquetry, killed 5 of our men, and wounded 14 ; among the latter is Count HENDI, Captain of artillery, who received a contusion in the foot. The night between the 9th and the 10th was employed with so much ardour in extending and completing the preceding works, that two dis- mounting batteries of the third parallel, and one in the second, were completely finished, and the com- munications enlarged to the requisite breadth. In the afternoon of the 9th, the enemy made an extraordinary effort from the curtain, near the gate of Mons, by means of a very brisk fire of can- non, mortars, and howitzers, directed against our batteries and communications; but it was at length silenced by that from our dismounting batteries. Towards next morning they renewed their at- tempt, but with as little success. The last twenty- four hours we had 5 men killed and 25 wounded — Among the latter is Sub- Lieutenant HELFENSTEIN of the bombardiers. July 12.— Yesterday we received intelligence of two advantages gained by our troops over the ene- my, between the Sambre and the Meuse, in French Flanders. According to the first report, General Count de LATOUR states, that the French having collected all the troops they could, came between ten and eleven at n'ght, to attack with five columns at once the line of his advanced posts. Their first column advanced against a post near Hantes, which we occupy only in the day time.— As there were consequently no troops there, they took possession of it without any attack ; but they were driven from it at day- break by Major Count de HADDIC of the regiment of Cobourg. The se- cond column of the enemy, consisting of 600 in- fantry and 200 cavalry, marched towards the farm of Salmagne. The third, consisting of 1200 in- fantry and 80 cavalry, with three pieces of can- non, made a sudden and unexpected attack on an advanced post, which was unable to resist such a su- perior force. This being reported to the brave Major NesliNGER of the regiment of Stein, who was on a piquet guard, he hastened to the relief of the redoubt at the head of a company, and falling upon the enemy's column with incredible bravery, killed 51 of them, took 85 prisoners, and obliged them to fly with precipitation. The fourth column, consisting of chasseurs, ad- vanced against our centre, and the fifth, consisting of some battalions of infantry, reinforced by caval- ry, attacked our right near Donzies and Lamotte, but Major Count KEGLEVIES of the regiment of Blankenstein, at the head of his hussars, attacked them, killed their commandant, with another offi- cer, and thirty soldiers, and put the rest to flight. The enemy left in the whole above 100 dead on the field of battle, among whom are the command- ant of one of the columns, and two other officers. We took prisoners one Colonel, one Captain, and 107 privates. Our loss consists in 11 killed, 25 wounded, and 36 prisoners surprized by the enemy The secend report of Lieutenant- Colonel de GOMETZ, of the Staff, announces, that Major UTZ, of the regiment of Blankenstein, wishing to free our advanced posts from the frequent attacks made against them by a body of the enemy, consisting of 8oo men, who were entrenched at Oost- Capelle, between Bergues and Roueil- Brugge, near our fron- tiers, he resolved to dislodge them. He therefore set out from the latter place on the 7th of this month, at the head of a detachment, consisting of Tyrolian chasseurs, with a party of the regiment of Laudon- verd and the hussars of Blankenstein, while Captain STANGER, with a detachment of the regi- ment of Laudon- verd, and a company of that of Orange- Gueldre, advanced by Beverin to support him. They made their, attack with so much suc- cess, that the enemy were driven from their en treachments, leaving 100 dead on the spot, while we had only eight killed and 11 wounded of the Austrians, and one killed and one wounded of the Dutch. On the night between the 10th and 11th, the works before Valenciennes were carried on with the utmost possible ardour. Great advances were made in the batteries, and the principal part of the artil lery were placed on them. The communications of the third parallel were completely finished, as well as the banquettes of defence and sortie, and bags of sand were placed on the parapets between the bat- teries. Our dismounting batteries of mortars and howitzers did great damage to the enemy's works in several places, and silenced the fire from the town ; while our grenades and pedereroes several times drove the workmen from the covered- way, so that the enemy's fire of musquetry was very faint during this night. We had 7 men killed and 22 wounded. On the night between the 11th and 12th the pa- rapet of the second parallel was raised at the left wing, to cover the new dismounting batteries which have been established there. The works at the batteries of the third parallel were continued.— They were mounted with artillery, and bags of sand were placed on the parapets between them.— All the supplies necessary for the siege were convey- ed to the right wing. In the afternoon of the nth, the enemy kept up a most violent fire, by means of which one of our mortar batteries was greatly da- maged ; but it was repaired in the night time.— The fire from our batteries was never discontinued ; during the course of the night we, above all, threw a great number of howitzers and bombs into the covered way, to prevent the enemy's fire of mus- quetry. These last 24 hours cost us four killed and 30 wounded. Lieut. PROHASKA, of the regiment of Michel Wallis, and Ensign WANEREMONDERE, of that of Wurtemberg, are among the latter. PROCLAMATION. FREDERICK JOSIAS, Duke of SAXE COBOURG, CLEVES, JULIERS, ENGEREN, and WESTPHALIA, Grand Cross of the Military Order of MARIA THERESA, Mareschal Commandant in Chief of the armies of his Majesty the EMPEROR and KING, and of the Empire, & c. & c. The town, fortress, and district of Conde having been subjected to the power of the EMPEROR and KING, by the valorous troops which I have the ho- nour to command, I declare by the present Procla- mation, that I take possession of it in the name of his IMPERIAL and ROYAL MAJESTY ; and that I grant to all the peaceful inhabitants of the conquered country every safety and protection. I declare, moreover, that I shall employ the authority which f exercise in virtue of the right of conqued, only to preserve public order, and to secure persons and pro- perty ; and wishing to pursue the first measures ne- cessary for accomplishing these important objects, I declare also, that it is my desire that all Clubs and all Assemblies, not authorised, whatever they may be, may immediately cease ; being firmly' resolved to dissolve and suppress them by every means in my power, and to inflict severe, military, and ex- emplary punishment on all those who shall hold such Clubs or Assemblies at their houses— or those who shall convene them or assist at them— or those who by actions or words shall insult or injure any person whatever— and in short, on all those who' in any manner shall disturb the public order and tranquil- Done at my Head Quarters General, at Herin, July 13. 1793. ( Signed) P. R. COBOURG, F. M. BRITISH HEAD QUARTERS. ESTREUX, July 16. On the 13th, agreeable to articles of surrender, the garrifon of Conde marched out of the town, and laid down their arms. It consisted of 4009 men, among whom were three regiments of the line, a- mounting to 2700: The rest were national guards, the strongest battalions of whom confided of 440 men. The troops of the line in general, and a few of the national guards, looked well; but the rest cut a miserable figure. They had been living for some time on eleven ounces of bread, and two of horse- flesh, and some rice, per diem. A considerable quantity of rice was still remaining, but bread had very much failed. They carried out with them about one hun- dred horses in good condition. One hundred and three pieces of ordnance were found in the place, but the quantity of ammunition was inconsiderable. The firing from Valenciennes ceased on a sudden this morning, and a flag of truce came out from the town. It was the general conjecture and ex- pectation, that the French were at length going to surrender.— The occasion was, however, to conduct a lady, a Madame METIOUR, to our camp, who wished to leave the place, and wanted to go to Pa- ris. She was readily received, but the latter part of her request cannot at present be complied with. She has her choice of Mons, Conde, or Brussels, for her present place of residence. The present operations of the siege are very much confined to mining, from which the greatest advantages are expected. The suspension of hosti- lities gave the Captain of the mines an opportuni- ty of walking to the covered way, and ascertaining the progrefs, length, and depth of his mine. During the truce, likewise, several of our officers had an op- portunity of conversing with some of those of the Troupes de Ligne, who came without the garrison. They expressed their wishes to furrender, and in- deed to come over entirely to t'ne KING'S party; but they were deterred by the consideration of their wives and families, who were in Valenciennes, and would be at the mercy of the Governor. There are frequent skirmishes between our ad- vanced posts and those of the enemy, in all of which we are successful— The French attacked, four days ago, an Austrian post, near Maubeuge, in which affair they had 103 taken prisoners, and a much greater number killed and wounded. The Austri- ans had only between 20 and 30 killed and wound- ed. Since the 10th, only one British has been kill- ed, and seven have been wounded, in the trenches. The loss of the Austrians, Hanoverians, and Hessians has been somewhat proportionably greater, particularly last night, when near fifty were killed and wounded. A very heavy cannonade is at pre- sent carrying on on both sides.

FRANCE. NATIONAL CONVENTION. Tuesday, July 9. The Minister of the Interior came to give an ac- count of the official transmission of the Constitution to all parts of the Republic. This, he said, would be finished to- morrow. Letters acknowledging its reception had given him to understand, that the city of Lisle, and many other Communities of the North, had received this work of the Representa- tives of the People with that enthusiasm with which the love of liberty and the laws inspire the French. The Minister added, that a letter from Landan, which expressed the same enthusiasm, announced, that in the exchange of prisoners, the King of Prus- sia had acknowledged the Republic. The cartel was in these words : " The King of Prussia to the French Republic." Wednesday, July 10. GASPARIN gave the contents of a letter from two Commissioners of the Convention with the army on the confines of La Rochelle.— This letter announced, that the rapid successes which Westermann had gained over the Rebels, had been followed by a considerable check in the very city itself which they had taken. Gen. Westermann, master of Cha tillen, had been surprised in it by the Rebels. The Commissioners accused him with having allowed him- self to be surprised, and not having known the ap- proach of the enemy until his soldiers were put to the bayonet in all quarters. The defeat was com- plete, and Westermann retired to Parthenay, where lie rallied the wreck of his little army. The Com- missioners loaded him with accusations. They ac- cused him of having spoken disrespectfully of the battalions of volunteers, whom he detested— of ha- ving continually favoured his own legion, as he considered the command of it, having all the ap- pointments, as a good speculation. They demand- ed his dismission, the reduction of his legion, and that it should be incorporated into the light troops, both cavalry and infantry.— They finished their let- ter, by- giving information, that General Chalbos made his troops fall back on Saint Maixent and Niort :—" We have lost," said they, " nine pieces of cannon, and a great number of people, without doubt; and this loss is the more severely felt, as the two battalions from Bourdeaux have gone home." Many members demanded instantly, that Gen. Westermann should be brought to the bar. BILLAUD VERENNES supported the motion for bringing General Westermann before the Revolu- tionary Tribunal ; and the Convention, on the pro- position of LACROIX, decreed,- that General Wester- mann should be brought to the bar, to give an ac- count of his conduct. GASPARIN- read a private letter, stating, that the army of the Eastern Pyrenees had beat the Spa- niards, made sixty prisoners, including two Officers, and taken two pieces of cannon and a stone mortar. Evening Sitting. ' This sitting was wholly consecrated to the election of the Members of the renewed Committee of Public Safety, which was reduced to nine Members. The result of the nominal call offered the follow- ing Deputies as MEMBERS OF THE RENEWED COMMITTEE OF PUBLIC SAFETY. Heraut Sechelles, Thomas Lindet, Prieur, of Marne, RIVAL CANDIDATES. Robespierre, Collot d'Herbois, Danton, Marat, Panis, Lacroix, THURSDAY, July 11. The Commissioners of the Convention confirmed the particulars of the defeat of the Spaniards, an- nounced by a letter read by GASPARIN in the fitting of yesterday. The loss of the Spaniards was stated by them at 160 men. A . Secretary read a letter from the Commander in Chief of the army of the Rhine, relative to the flate of the fortress and garrifon of Mentz. It was dated Freckenfield, July 8. and stated as follows: " The courage which distinguishes the soldiers of the Republic in every part has its full energy in that besieged city, where so many good Frenchmen are seen to submit to wants cheerfully, and with that confidence of valour which defends the cause of freedom— where even the victims of the first at- tacks are now feen running through the streets with their wooden legs, and exclaiming, without repining at their loss, Long live the Republic! " If those brave defenders of that city did but know that the wish of the French is now accom- plished by their having obtained a free constitution, they would repeat with all the army, with all the patriots, Long live the Constitution " ST ANDRE, in the name of the Committee of Pu- blic Safety, made a report, upon which the Con- vention decreed, " That General Biron, who car- ries on the war with such supineness in La Vendee, be recalled, and that the Minister of War do present another General in the course of this evening." CAMBON, in name of the Committee of Public Safety, gave in the following report on the present state of the Republic : " The army of the North," said he, " was in the utmoft confusion by the the treachery of Dumourier ; our strong- holds were hardly defended by 2,500 gar- rison soldiers. Dumourier had delivered up im- mense magazines to the enemy : He reserved, at a considerable expence, 20,000 musquets, and 25,000 suits of regimentals, to the Austrians; while he ne- ver ceased to write to the Assembly, that the troops were in. want of forage and arms, but, above all, destitute of cloathing. " The armies of the Rhine and the Moselle pre- sented the most formidable state, and left nothing to be wished for. Those of the Alps and Italy were without a Chief, and without discipline. " The Decrees of the Convention stated, that there should be an army in the Pyrennees; but al- though war had been declared against Spain, yet there was not a single soldier on the frontiers. A counter- revolutionary ferment has manifested itself in La Vendee : It was thought at first, that some efforts on the part of the inhabitants would be suffi- cient to suppress it; but their carelessnefs had suf- fered the flames of discord to spread so far as to threaten to communicate itself to all the rest of the Republic ; the coasts were left entirely destitute.— This was the military state of France when the Committee of Public Safety was created to extri- cate her from this abyss. " Soon matters wore a different aspect. All the armies were cloathed, and supplied with provisions; and the recruiting was accelerated by sending Com- missioners. This measure has been severely censur- ed by persons who compared those Commissioners with Dictators, Proconsuls, Sec. but, without inquir- ing if the fervency of their zeal has brought upon them some deserved reproach, it is mere justice to say, that they have operated the greatest good, not- withstanding the disgrace which had got the start of them in the Departments, where they were repre- sented as Maratists. " The army of the North presents now a most en- couraging sight. It was disorganized after the un- fortunate battle of Famars, partly through want of discipline among the soldiers, partly through want of vigilance on the part of the Officers. The camp was rather surprised than carried. The soldiers fought like lions on that occasion ; but discipline ap- peared to them an insupportable yoke. This is no more the case. Now that army is completely re- organized, and restored to peace and order. The infantry manoeuvre twice a- day, and the cavalry go through their evolutions thrice a week ; and the lat- ter are full as good as those of the enemy. The whole army is pleased with its present state, which it attributes to Custine. Mean- while the conduct of this General is impeached from some quarters, and posterity will judge him. The enemy appear to be superior in point of number ; but they will soon be diminished by our strong holds. It will doubtless be matter of astonishment, and posterity will perhaps disbelieve the fact, that Conde, that little place, has resisted, for upwards of three months, all the powers of the North ; whereas, in the accounts transmitted to us, we are assured that the place had no more provisions than would last five weeks. " Valenciennes follows so fine an example; and its resistance is crowned with the most brilliant suc- cesses. " The armies of the Rhine and the Moselle are now able to act offensively. Their van has already made a movement to throw relief into Mentz, the garrison of which is justly entitled to the greatest encomiums. * " The presence of the two Commissioners of the Convention contributes much towards this fine de- fence. They cause the most vigorous sallies to be made, which depress the enemy. They will per- haps be obliged to employ the whole of this cam- paign to take a city which could not hold out two days against Custine. " The army of the Alps is divided in several di- rections, to defend the passage over the mountains ; it is strong enough to act offensively. That of Italy is always acting upon the offensive ; and if it should be so fortunate as to carry the important post of Sa- orgio, that part of the Republic will be secured to us for ever. A Spanish and British fleet, consisting of 34 sail, is cruizing off Nice and Villefranche, which it seems to threaten ; but these two places can be vigorously defended by the army in Italy. _ " The Eastern Pyrenees are invaded by the Spa- niards. Our reliance has been placed upon the in- habitants of the fouth ; but their courage has been shackled by the spirit of egotism, which has frustra- ted all the hopes of the Committee of Public Safety. — The supplies have been slow and tardy, as they could not arrive but after a long passage. Befides the garrison of Perpignan, there are between 8000 and 10,000 men, who could not oppose the taking of Belleoarde. .0 " Since the 6th inftant, they were to have been reinforced by 4000 veteran troops, and 4000 men lately raised. Those 8000 men are arrived at their posts, with an additional supply of twelve pieces of cannon, and a company of cannoneers. This army will also be reinforced by a considerable corps of cavalry. " The army of La Vendee consists at least of 60,000 men; and the troubles in that department would long ago have been quelled, had not every one too much consulted his own interest. These troops are divided into three principal points; and, to accelerate their successes, 18,000 men more have been demanded, and will be speedily and easily le- vied. Versailles, Auxerre, Troyes, and other places, have manifested their zeal in a most conspi- cuous manner. This army will doubtless be weak- ened by the desertion of two battalions of Gironde. It ought to be observed, that their departure is not owing to any sentiments of a political nature, but to the expiration of their limited term of engagement. The troops of the rebels are unknown ; not a man of them appears in the day- time; at night they ring the bells, and immediately on all sides armed men are seen ; and they fight neither for the King nor for the Nobility— no, they combat for the sake of JESUS CHRIST, for the purpose of getting into Paradise. The check which Westermann has recei- ved may be easily repaired. The army of the coasts was on the point of being formed, owing to the care of the Commissioners; but since the 2d of June, their efforts have proved ineffectual. It is thus the administrators, under the pretence of restoring order, and making the Con- vention respected, furnish means to the English to penetrate into our territories. Do they then think that the English will, also come to enforce the re- spect due to the representatives of the nation ? Let us be united, and we shall be invincible ; but this union still remains an illusion. " The whole Republic is in a state of commo- tion. By the most unheard- of prodigy, we fee CAL- VIN united with the POPE in the South, to fanaticize the minds of the people. The new assignats are discredited, and go at 5 per cent, less than those bearing the bull of Louis XVI. The public money is stopped; but the Genius which watches over France, has forefeen the evils which might have resulted. The supplies ot provisions have been sent; and the expences of the present month will be 125 millions less than the last. These expences are no doubt enormous; but surprize will cease, if we consider that one hundred and seventy- stx strong holds required to be supplied, eleven armies organiz- ed, a navy created, & c. & c. In other respects a list of these expences shall be presented to all the Re- public. " There is an act of impeachment left with the Committee, which proves that the 17th of July- was the day fixed on to reltore the Monarch ; the son of Louis Capet was to have been proclaimed King, by the name of Louis XVII; and Maria Antoinette Regent during the minority of the new- King. The alarm gun was to have been fired in the morning ; and this was to be the signal for dis- solving the National Convention. " Those who signed the act of impeachment have been summoned to the Committee, where they recapitulated the particulars of the written charge. " Upon this the Committee has ordered Dillon to be put under arrest. The answers of this Ge- neral, on his examination, coincide with the infor- mation exhibited respecting this plot. Dillon con- fessed his intention of putting himself at the head of an armed force, to crush anarchy, and to re- establifh good order. We laid hold of the right sense of these words. " The Committee, urged by these circumstances, thought proper to ordain that young Capet be se- parated from his mother. From this source we ought to trace the calumnies spread against the Committee. It was reported to have conceived a design of proclaiming King Louis XVII. whereas we were all the while exerting our efforts to sup- press this liberticide plot. I conclude with propo ling to you, that Dillon be delivered up to the Re - volutionary Tribunal." CAMILLE DESMOULINS combated this proposition. The Convention, amidst the loudest bursts of ap- plause, decreed, " That General Dillon be delivered up for trial to the Revolutionary Tribunal." EVENING SITTING. COuTHON, in the name of the Committee of Pu- ' blic Safety, communicated the following letter from' Lyons: " Biroteau has provoked an insurrection at Ly- ons, where the department holds a congress, which has resolved to march a confiderable force against Paris. This resolution has been most pompously proclaimed. The whole city was illuminated ; the party of the Mountain of the Convention was decla- red to be outlawed, and all the provisions destined for the armies have been intercepted. A courier sent to the army by Dubois Crance has also been stopped. " Chasse is at Lyons, which threatens to invade all those neighbouring cities which do not partici- pate in its opinion : 600 men are ready to march hence, and the inhabitants are every where in a rage." On the motion of COUTHON, the Convention pas- sed the foflowing decree : I. Biroteau is declared a traitor to his country, and outlaw- ed ; and likewise all the members of the Congress of Rhone and Loire. a. The Executive Council shall order troops to march a- gainst Lyons. 3. The property of the persons outlawed by this present decree, shall be sequestrated, and put under seal. 4. The payment of the state creditors resident at Lyons shall be suspended. 5. All persons domiciliated at Lyons shall be bound to quit that city on the reception of this present decree, under pain cf having their property sequestrated ; and the Commission- ers of the Convention in the army of the Alps are charged with the execution of this decree. Friday, July 12. MIRANDA, under house arrest by order of the Po- lice, begged to be brought to the bar, where he wished to reveal faCts of the greatest importance to the safety of the Republic. The Convention decreed that Miranda be heard to- morrow. WARSAW July 3. In consequence of the measures which the Court of Petersburgh had taken for the election of the De- puties of the Diet of Grodno, it was expeCted that the accomplishment of its views, relatively to the the partition of Poland, would not have met with any obstacle ; and the passive state of the King since the triumph of the famous confederation of Targo- witz, gave no reason to suppose that that Prince would or could oppose it.— The event has, how- ever, proved otherwise : If the too great modera- tion, or, as others say, the weakness of STANISLAUS AUGUSTUS, in acceding to that confederation, has been complained of with reason, he now repairs, as much as is in his power, the effeCts of that forced accession ; and the friends of justice, and the true honour of Sovereigns, may hope to see a system of politics, so generally deprecated by all Europe, counter- aCted by the resistance of the Poles, and the unexpected energy of their lawful Sovereign. " If I acceded," said STANISLAUS AUGUSTUS, in answer to the note delivered to the Diet of Grodno, by the Russian and Prussian Ministers, on the 19th nit. " if I acceded to the confederation of Targo witz, it was under the persuasion that, in consequence of the solemn engagement of that same confedera tion, under the auspices of her Majesty the Empress of RUSSIA, the possessions of the Republic would be preserved entire: I expeCted that the confederates of Targowitz, authorised by that Sovereign, would not have made a public profession of not suffering any attack to be made on the rights and property of their country, unless they have been allured, that such were the intentions of her Imperial Ma- jesty ; I thought that the only end for which the confederation had been formed, was the re- establish- ment of public tranquillity and harmony, and 1 hoped that the welfare of the Republic would be the fruit of the sacrifices I made. " My hopes and expectation have been decei- ved : The major part of the Republic is occupied by the troops of two neighbouring powers; Under these circumftances, I have no other counsel to give my countrymen than to urge, by well- founded, pressing, but moderate and friendly remonstrances, the Courts of Petersburgh and Berlin, to adopt other measures, and to renounce their projeCt of dismem- bering our unhappy country ; a dismemberment, to which, at least I protest that I shall never consent." The King's discourse was highly applauded by the Diet, who decreed that solemn thanks be made him ; and his Majesty's counsel was not only follow- ed, but the spirit of it formed the basis of the reso- lutions paired in the following sittings. EXTRAORDINARY DIET AT GRODNO. June 24. The notes from the Ministers of the Courts of Petersburgh and Berlin, urging the appointment of a delegation to discuss the proposed partition of the Republic, being read, The KING, supported by a majority of the Diet, including all the Deputies from Lithuania, opposed the appointment of a delegation, and contended, with equal warmth and preserverance, that the only proper course was to send Ministers to the foreign Courts in correspendence with Poland, to make known the critical situation of the Republic, and to request their mediation with the Empress and the King of Prussia. The MARSHAL, on the contrary, was for the ap- pointment of a delegation, and, the question being called for, adjourned the Diet. June 25. The debate was renewed with an increased ma- jority in favour of the proposition supported by the King. A kind of middle course was proposed by the Bishop of Kossakowski, of which the King, in a speech, shewed the inconsistency. r June 26. The MARSHALL insisted, that the demands of the Courts of Petersburgh and Berlin,' with respect to the delegation, should be finally decided on. The Ma- jority insisted, that the other proposition should be first put to the vote, and the Diet resolved— " That the Chancellors shall be enjoined to send, with all possible dispatch, to the Ministers at Charges d'Affaires of the Republic at Foreign Courts, instructions to repre- sent to those Courts the critical situation of Poland, to remind them of the relations subsisting between them and the Republic, and to claim their mediation with the Courts of Petersburgh and Berlin, in order to induce these Courts to restore to the Republic the Provinces they have seized upon, and also to withdraw their troops from the territories of the Republic." Poland having no Minister at Vienna since the recal of M. WOYNA, his former title and powers were stored to him. The Marshal again pressed the appointment of a delegation. The majority insisted on first deciding, with whom, in what manner, and to what extent the delegation should be authorised to treat. This mo- dification gave rise to a second—*' That the delega- tion should be authorised to treat only with the Court of Petersburgh."— The majority adopted this se- cond modification, and the question being put on the two following propositions— Shall the delegation treat with the Imperial Court exclusively— or— Shall it enter into negotiations with the two Courts conjointly ? The first was carried by 107 against 24. LonDon, July 22. The Dutch mail, which arrived this morning, brought accounts from Warsaw, through Holland, by which it appears certain that the KING of PO- LAND, and a very great majority of the Diet of Grodno, protest against the dismemberment of that unhappy country. & c the article Warsaw. The GRAND DUKE of TUSCANY, still persisting in his intention to preserve a strict neutrality during the present shock of Europe, LORD HERVEY the British Minister at the Court of Florence has ad- dressed a letter to him, strongly remonstrating a gainst such a conduCt, and a second paper, on the same subjeCt, to all the Foreign Ministers resident at Florence. : Captain BOULTON, late commander of the Albe- marle East Indiaman, captured by the French, ar- rived in town on Saturday from St Maloes, which place he left on the 15th instant. He brings intel- ligence of the French Royalists having again attack- ed Nantes r and that the last news from thence was, that they were firing red- hot balls into the town, which it was thought would surrender. The cap- ture of this place is the more important at this juncture, as we have reason to believe that it would greately facilitate the operations of LORD HOWE, which, it is generally supposed, are directed to that quarter. That fleet, however, it will be seen, is yet scarcely out of sight of the British shore. Wednesday afternoon a messenger arrived with dis- patches from the Duke of YORK, dated Camp before Valenciennes, July 16. They contain nothing of importance with respect to the siege;— a phrase, by which is meant, that no material progress has been made in it fince the former dispatches were sent off. The besiegers have not yet been able to find out the enemy's mines, which they must do before they can approach near enough to batter in breach. In the mean time a constant fire is kept up on the town, the demolition of which, within the range of our cannon and mortars, is nearly completed. A Cabinet Council was held on Saturday even- ing. It is rumoured in some well informed circles, that his Royal Highness the Duke of YORK, in his last dispatches, stated, that Valenciennes, if attack- ed by storm, might be carried in two days, but if the regular approaches were followed out, it might stand another month. The determination of the Council on this business remains a perfect secrct. About 1500 bombs are thrown every night into the town ot Valenciennes, which cost about 3I. per bomb at the Dutch market. The garrison of Valenciennes is in the same want of bark and other medicines as that of Conde was. They have consequently no remedy for putrid dis- orders. The Duke of MANCHESTER, Mr WYNDHAM, the Member, Col. TARLETON, and Mr MENDEZ, were in the British camp, before Valenciennes, on the* 16th inst. By a letter from Bern, in Switzerland, we trace four of the lately proscribed Members of the French Convention on their way to Italy.— They passed through Bern on the 28th ult. and appeared to travel with desperate dispatch. RespeCting the progress of the different sieges carrying on upon the Continent, we receive by the mail no further official accounts than those which appear in the first page of this paper ; however, it should seem, by the universal complexion of in- telligence, as it is scattered through the foreign Ga- zettes, speaking of Mentz, that there is now great probability of its falling before Valenciennes. The besieged are driven to so great a strait for powder, & c. that they are obliged to unload their mines. Terms of honourable surrender have been again of- fered by the garrison, and again rejected. Wimpsen marching to Paris, as he declares, to restore the indepency of the Convention, and crush anarchy, is suspected by them of harbouring a de sign to forward the cause of the Royalists, as his army has been chiefly collected from quarters fa- vourable to that cause. It is confirmed, by way of Copenhagen, that a part of the Russian fleet have been obliged to re- en- ter the port of Revel, to repair the damages they have sustained by a severe storm ; the particulars of it are not given. On Saturday intelligence was received from Ad miral GARDNER, dated the 30th of May, which an nounccd the reduction of Pigeon Island. The Ad- miral was then with his fleet at anchor before Mar- tinico, preparing for a siege, which the capture of Pigeon Island would facilitate. The 1st, 21st, and 65th regiments of foot are or- dered to embark from Nova Scotia for the West Indies. The following anecdote ought not to pass unno ticed : A French privateer was taken and carried into Ostend, within a few hours after her sailing from Dunkirk. The Captain was killed in the en gagement, and his son, a boy of twelve years of age was among the number of the prisoners. As soon as Sir WILLIAM ERSKINE heard of these circum stances, he fent a trumpet with the boy to the near, est French post, in order that he might be convey ed to his mother at Dunkirk. ASSASSINATION OF MARAT. Advices have been received in town this morning from Paris of the murder of this extraordinary per- son, by the hand of a woman. It took place on Sunday the 14th instant. The particulars are near- ly as follow— On the Thursday preceding his death a woman of a respectable appearance arrived at Paris from Caen in Normandy. On the two following days she was busied, it should seem, in making enquiries respecting the various crimes imputed to her destined viCtim, and having satisfied herself as to the truth, on the Sunday she obtained an interview with MA- RAT. She continued in conversation with him for some ne, asking his opinion of several persons whom she named ; and on his averring them to be Counter- Revolutionists, she instantly stabbed him, declaring that she was then convinced that every thing she had heard of him was true. On her being seized and interrogated, she justi- fied her conduct by declaring her conviction that MARAT had been the cause of all the evils with which France had lately been afflicted ; she seemed to glory in- her aCt, and declared, that she had not been instigated by any person, and that no one was privy to it. ' Thus perished a man, who has been a principal aCtor, if not the instigator, of more important events within the last twelve months, than perhaps any other person in a similar period of time. His assassinator was a native of Caen, and a wo- man in a respectable situation of life. PLYMOUTH— July 10. Arrived the William and Ann, Aurora, Brenshale, and Eliza, transports, with the 58th and 63d regi- ments of foot, from Ireland. The Bellerophon is ar- rived from Earl HOWE'S fleet, with her bowsprit, figure head, foremast, and main- topmast carried a-, way. This accident happened by her running foul of the Majestic in the night. Lord HOWE'S fleet has been cruising off this place all day; they passed, close to Penlee Point, and are now standing to the Westward with a fine northerly gale. At the Maidstone assizes, two of the fellows who robbed Colonel Dundas were tried, found guilty, and ordered for execution. A Swedish ship of war, which was at anchor in the port of Carlscrona, was lately blown up, and every soul on board perished. DIED, On Monday last, after a few hours illnefs, in the Camp of Cisoin, the Hon. C. ROBERT SOUTHWELL of the 3d Dragoon Guards, only brother to the Right Hon. the Lord de CLIF- FORD. At Sharrow, near Sheffield, MRS MACKENZIE, wife of the Rev. Alex. Mackenzie, Minister of St Paul's Church of that town. EVENING COURANT. THURSDAY— JULY 25. Mrs STEWART Nicholson was safely delivered of a son at Carnock, on Wednesday the 24th inst GEORGE OGILVIE- was safely delivered of a son Married on Tuesday the 23rd current John THOMSON, Naval Officer, Leith, to Miss JANET MIDDLETON, daughter of George Middleton, Esq. Comptroller of the Customs there. Married at Crieff the 18th curt, the Rev. Dr SAMUEL GILFILLAN in Comrie, to Miss RACHEL BARLASS, eldest daughter of the Rev. Mr James Barkis in Crieff. Died at Morningside on Monday the 22d cur- rent, the Hon. Lord GARDENSTON.— His Lordship was raised to the Bench in 1764. His professional character derived its first lustre from his exertions in the Douglas cause, in which he was opposed by the present Lord Chancellor, then Mr Wedderburn, before the Parliament of Paris, where his Lordship's legal knowledge, and fluent elocution in the French language, procured him universal admiration from all who were present. His Lordship was distin- guished for his genius, taste, wit, and humour. Among the public works which do him honour, are the Village of Laurencekirk, planned by his Lord- ship, and St Bernard's Well, near Edinburgh, built after the model of a temple at Tivoli, in Italy-. There are now two vacancies in the Bench of the Court of Session. On Tuesday the 16th inst. died at Elgin, Miss CHRISTINA TERESA grant, daughter of Sir James Grant of Grant, Bart. W2 DUBLIN— July 10. By accounts received from Limerick, we learn that the rioters who burnt down the village of Ad- fry, being again pursued by the Magistrates and mili - tary, retreated to the village called Bruff, where they made a stand, and fired on their pursuers from the windows of the houses ; but they were attacked with spirit, about one hundred and thirty killed and wounded, several taken prisoners, and the rest escap- ed by flight. - One militia- man was killed in this conflict, and several of the army and militia were wounded. CONSUL FENWICK at Elsineur has received official accounts from Christiania,. dated the 6th instant, that the French privateer Sanspareil was then crui- zing off the Naze, and was manning, boats for the purpose of intercepting ships off the coast. It was likewise reported there, that three British vessels, corn- loaded, were taken and carried into Fahrsund, We hear from Montrose, that on Wednesday last a copy of the act of last session of Parliament,' re- pealing the duty coals carried coaStwise, having been transmitted to the Magistrates by the Member for the , the bells were immediately set a ringing, and the colours belonging to the town, the different Corporations, and ships in the harbour, displayed, under a general discharge of the guns of the battery ; and in the evening, the Magistrates gave an entertainment to the gentlemen of the Cu- stoms, and some other of the inhabitants, when the healths of the Right Hon. HENRY DUNDAS, Mr SCOTT of Dunninauld, Mr ALLARDyCE of Dunottar, Mr BARCLAY of Ury, and others who have contri- buted to the repeal, were drunk, amidst the grate- ful acknowledgments of the company, for their un- wearied and successful endeavours in support of a measure so much calculated for the relief of the poor, the benefit of agriculture, and the encourage- ment of the manufactures of that part of the coun- try. The last Newmarket meeting was the most thinly attended of any within the annals of the turf;— a few sharks but no gudgeons ;— plenty of knowing ones, but not one flat of any consequence. An Irishman of the Artillery has, for repeated offences, been flogged at Fort Monkton. During the operation Patrick exclaimed " Oh ! Captain, by J s, do you think you're flogging a Bullock." To the drummer he said also, " O, thunder and ounds, Mr Drummer, do you think you're striking your own dear noisy drum- head." Anecdote of a Juryman.— It was remarked of a citizen of Dublin, that with the most inflexible ho- nesty of opinion, he had a set of such singular opi- nions, that whenever called upon as a juror in questions about the excise laws, libel, or other public trials, he constantly entertained notions of the law and justice of the case, different from those laid down by the Judge, and taken up by his bro- ther jurymen ; but he as constantly persevered in his notions, until he brought them all over. One of the judges asked him one day how he came to be so forward, and to give the Court so much trouble : " My Lord," said he, with the utmost gravity, " it has been always my misfortune to be on a jury with eleven obstinate men." The Duchess of Buccleugh, Brown, and the o- ther ships, arrived this day in Leith Roads, from London, under convoy. The Mally, Maxwell, from Wilmington, North Carolina, with goods, is arrived at Leith. The Dundee, Lauder, is arrived at Dundee, from Greenland, with 183 butts blubber, 16 butts cring, and 4 ton bone, the produce of four large whales. SHIP NEWS. ELSINEUR— JULY 9. 1793.

To be SOLD by public roup, within the house of John Wil- son, vintner in Dunfermline, upon Thursday the 15th day of August 1793, at twelve o'clock- noon, THAT HOUSE and LARGE GARDEN, lying on the South Side of the populous Manufacturing Town of DUNFERMLINE, and shire of Fife, as possessed by the late Mr David Wardlaw, Merchant and Manufacturer, The House commands a most extensive and beautiful view of the Forth, and the country at a great distancc, and con sists of a large dining room, five other rooms, closets, kitchen, scullery, ceilars, and other conveniences, besides two parlours on the ground story converted into ware- rooms— There is al- so an additional ware- room built to the east end, which con- tains a stable below.— The subjects are, in general, in good repair, and capable, at a small expence, to accommodate a genteel family. The Garden is neatly laid out, and well stocked with small fruit and fruit trees of the best kinds, which are well trained up, both upon the walls and for espaliers. The subjects may be seen on Mondays and Fridays, be- twixt twelve and two o'clock— And for other particulars ap- ply to James Dalgliesh, writer in Edinburgh, No. 34, North Bridge Street, who will show the title deeds and articles of roup. ' On Saturday the 20th curt. died at the Manse of Falkirk, the Rev. John MuiR, much and justly re- gretted Died on Friday last, Mrs helen SMITH, spouse to Mr John Annand, merchant in Aberdeen. JAMES JACKSON, Esq. is appointed Treasurer of Herriot's Hospital, in the room of Mr George Les- lie, who has resigned. The Court of Directors have appointed JOHN BRUCE, Esq. to be successor to Mr ORME, as Histo- riographer to the Hon. the East- India Company. The story told by the National Convention, of the garrison having made a sortie at Valenciennes, and destroyed all the works of the besiegers, turns out to be nothing more or less than a bold down- right falsehood. The American Constitution is as different from that of France, as the British is from that of Russia. The laws of Congress, and their Courts of Judica- ture, are modelled from ours ; and they differ very little from us in any point, except that we have a King, and they a General, who- has even more power than our Monarch. In a debate some time since in the American Con- gress, on the subject of purchasing watches in Eng- land, one of the Members said, he should not be surprised it all Europe laughed at them for sending 3000 miles—" to know what o'clock it was." BOARDING & EDUCATION FOR YOTING LADIES, BLAIR- street, / Third Stair from Hunter's Square. MISS HERON begs- leave to acquaint her Friends and the Public, that she has lately begun, and continues to BOARD and EDUCATE YOUNG LADIES, who are taught all kinds of Fancy and Needle Work and at- tended by the most approved Masters for instructing them in English, French, Writing, Geography, Drawing, Music, and Dancing. She likewise proposes taking a few YOUNG LADIES as DAY SCHOLARS, who may, if agreeable, dine or drink tea, and have an opportunity of attending the Teachers along with the other Boarders. As there is no other Day School in this part of the town, where Young Ladies have those Teachers, and as Blair street is an airy excellent situation, Miss Heron flatters herself she shall meet with the patronage of the public, which she will endeavour to merit by the most unremitting attention.

The World will judge of the infamy of HALL'S attempted Imposition, when his Mother comes forward salsisy by Affidavit, every syllable he asserts. Affidavit oj the Mother oj J. B. Hall In compliance with strict justice, and in consequence of the present contest between Mr Gordon, the Patentee for the Violet Soap and Cream of Violets, and my son J. B. HALL ; I feel myself called upon to declare upon oath in the most solemn manner, That Mr Gordon was the first person, so far as I know, who introduced the Violet Soap, first public- ly brought forward by him 0n the nth of February 1791, after having obtained a Patent for his invention from the King, dated the 23d of January 1786 ; that my late Hus- band, and Father to my Son, J. B. HaLl., was, at the time of his death, a Bookbinder, and never concerned himself in any way in the Manufacturing of Soap; and that, as my Son, J. B. HALL, professes his knowledge of Soap- making is derived from a knowledge acquired in his Father's life- time, from Soap made by me, I do declare, that such Soap is what I sold for many years at Eighteen- pence a Pounds and called Purified Windsor Soap. Z^ 1 Signed by the Mother of J. B. HALL. ' Sworn before me the 5th day of December 1792. JAMES SANDERSON, Mayor, The Nobility and Gentry are respectfully informed, that Mr GORDON'S VIOLET SoAp and CREAM OF VIOLETS, are to be had genuine of J. BAXTER, Italian Warehouse, South Bridge, W. RAEBURN and A. SMITH, North Bridge, T. KELTIE, of Andrew's Street, / / And no where else in Edinburgh. TO THE NOBILITY AND GENTRY. Notwithstanding the industrious pains taken by WALteR GORDON of Bank- Buildings to depreciate the Violey Soap Cream of Violets, and Turkish Wash of J. B. HAlL, the Son and Heir of the original proprietor, and the only- person of whom those elegant articles can be had in genuine purity. And although the said Gordon is making life of e- very deception to obtrude a vile drug of his own in their room, so well established is the reputation both of the real proprietor, J. B. HALL, as well as of his articles, that he has " been under the necessity, in consequnce of the increasing demand for them, to open an office for the better accommo- dation of the Public, at No. 3, Beaufort- Buildings, Strand, within two . doors of which they were originally sold by his late Father, in which neighbourhood the proprietor has the satisfaction of being able to give the most respectable re- ferences; among others, particularly to. Mr J. Burgess, Ita- lian Merchant, No. 107, corner of Savoy Steps, Strand, as being more intimately acquainted with his family and him- self, from his infancy. Sold, wholesale and retail, hy J. B.
