MENZIES, Head Collector, Stamp- Office, Edinburgh, North- Britain Aug. 1. 1793. Foreign Intelligence. VIENNA— July 16. Tha Baron de ROLE, whom Count d'Antois sent to Petersburgh, presented a memorial to our Court, on the part of MONSIEUR de PROVENCE, as Regent of France, in which that Prince requests his IMPERIAL MAJESTY to be introduced into Valenciennes, as soon as that fortress shall have surrendered to our troops, in order to give to Our conquests a proper form, as on the part of the only lawful power in France. A verbal answer has been returned to this memorial; but the verbal reply was at first very unfavourable. The Prince of SAxE CoBouRg sent to General FERRAND, the Commandant of Valenciennes, a copy of a moniteur, which states, that the garrison of that fortress had, in several sallies spiked a great num- ber of cannon, and killed between 5000 and 6000 men. The Princes adds, that he sends that journal to convince him how impudently the people of Paris were deluded with stories of that kind. The official letter of CUSTINE to the Convention, in which he announces the arrival of 12,000 Rus sians at Quiavrain, has afforded great merriment to our Court. BRUSSELS— August r. A few days ago, some police- officers went to the house of M. LASONDE, the intimate friend of the Ex- General DUMOURIER, and there seized all the papers which that unfortunate and celebrated man had left. DuMouriER himself had set off about two hours be- fore this occurrence. At the same time a similar visit was made to a country house occupied by General MARASSE, Com- mandant of Antwerp during the French invasion of Brabant and Holland. the police officers also re- paired to the houses of two eminent burghers of Brussels, known for their attachment to the Jacobin party, where some French officers had left papers, which were carried ofF likewise. it is presumed that there are some strong suspicions of the proceedings of those ancient French officers, whose turbulent and restless spirit of intrigue and cabal, congenial to their fellow countrymen, could not be suppressed. The day before yesterday. this city was full of in cendiary hand- bills, in which the French Emigrant- were invited to take up arms, to prevent, as the bill expresses, the dismemberment of their unhappy coun- try, ready to be effected, like that of hapless Poland, by the Confederate Powers.— The bills were at first torn off, as we are sensible of the injury which the partition of Poland, and the treatment of the Polish Diet at Grodno, operates against the cause of all Sovereign's. WARSAW— July 24. The project of a treaty of alliance between Rus- sia and Poland, laid before the Diet by the Dele- gates, appointed to treat with the Russian Ambassa- dor Count SIEVERS, consists of the following ar- ticles : ART. I. A lasting peace and friendship shall be established between Russia and Poland. 11. ' The Republic is formally to cede to the Empress of Russia, the provinces occupied by the Russian troops HI. The Republic is also to renounce all claims whatever on these provinces, and to guarantee all the Russian poS- sessions in Europe. IV. Russia shall renounce all claims upon any other part of the territory of the Republic, aud guarantee the integrity of Poland in its present state. V. Mutual commercial advantages shall be granted to the inhabitants of Russia and Poland. VI. The Roman Catholic inhabitants in the provinces ceded to Russia shall enjoy a free exercise of their religion. VII. Poland shall be allowed to chuse such a form of Government as the King and the States shall think most con- venient. VIII. All the other points which shall be agreed upon by the Russian Ambassador and the Delegates, shall be compre- hended in a separate treaty. IX. The necessary ratifications shall be exchanged within the next six weeks. The new Constitution is said to resemble that of 1775, and to consist chiefly of the following ar- ticles : ART: I. The King is to be eleCted, not by the nation, but by an Extraordinary Diet, consisting of three times the num- ber of Deputies who compose the present Diet. II. The Diet shall be convened, not every second, but every fourth year ; and during the interval, the Govern- ment shall rest with the King and a permanent Council. III. The civil list shall consist of 6,000,000 of Polish flo- rins, out of which 3,000,000 shall be yearly employed to pay the debts of the King. On the 20th inst. the Prussian Ambassador, Baron BUCHOLTZ, addressed a note to the Diet, wherein he demanded, that the Delegates should treat with him, as well as with the Russian Ambassador, but has as yet received no answer. DIET AT GRODNO, July ,5. After reading the report of the conferences of the Delegation with the Prussian Ambassador ; the treaty of alliance with Russia, presented by the Ambassador, of which the partition of Poland is the basis, and with respect to which neither modi- fication nor representation could be received ; and the note presented by the Ambassador the same day, containing new threats in case the Delegation should not instantly be empowered to sign the treaty; it was proposed that the Chancellors should give in a re port on the present state of Europe, from their cor respondence with the Ministers of the Republic at foreign Courts. July 16. The Marshal communicated a second note from the Russian Ambassador, threatening military exe- cution on all the property of the Members of the Diet, who should make further opposition to his demands on the Royal domains and personal pro- perty of the KING, and on the revenues of the Re public. Several Members proposed, that the Chancellors should declare to the Ambassador, that the Diet acting under the bond of the confederation of Tar- gowitz, and bound by the same oath, could not > consent to the cession of any provinces ; which the majority of the Diet seemed dispofed to adopt. The proposition for granting unlimited powers to the Delegation was again brought forward and rejected. Several Nuncios proposed communicating the last note from the Ruffian Ambassador, and the proposed treaty of alliance, to all the foreign Ministers. This was opposed by M. MiAczyNsKi and several Nun- cios from Wolhynia. M. MLODZIANOWSKI of Rozansk, proposed that the representation to be made by the Delegation to the Ambassador, on the reasons which prevented tha Diet from consenting to the cession of any provinces, should signed by each of the Members and sent to Petersburgh, to be there presented to the eM PRESS. The same Members, who opposed the for- mer proposition, opposed this also, and with diffi- culty consented that it should be taken into further consideration. On the 17th it was proposed in the Diet to give full powers to the Delegation to sign the proposed treaty. LIST of FORTIFIED TOWNS IN FRANCE.

The following are the chief of the additional particu- lars which this extraordinary man has just given to the world, relative to his own life :— In August 1787, he procured a pension of 1200 dollars ( about 22- 1.) from the present KING of PrusSIA, but could not recover his confisicated estates, for the Surrender of them would have been an impeachment of the justice of the GREAT FREDERIC. About this period he assisted or believes that he did in bringing about an alliance between the Cabinets of Vienna and Berlin. After being received at Frankfort and at Strasbourg, almost with the honours of a triumph, he reached Paris in the year 1789, and published an edition of his life, three days before the Revolution. Upon leaving the city, he had occasion to ask a passport from M DE LA FAYETTE, who requested that he would travel without a Sword. " General ( Said TRENCK), I am an officer in the Service of a foreign power, and whoever demands my Sword shall die by its point " The Baron relates this anecdote of himSelf, without any apology for Such unprovoked turbu- lence; but his readers will allow it to a man, who has been injured like him in the beginning of life, to step somewhat beyond the bounds of common conduct in its conclusion. When the late Emperor, LEOPOLD, ascended the throne, TRENCK obtained an audience, in which he was treated with kindness and condescension ; and shortly after he was sent into Hungary, where a curious, interruption was given to his literary efforts in behalf of the House of Austria. A military tribunal, not understanding the objeCt of his writings, and thinking it moreover unsuitable, that an of- ficer should write, obliged him to Sign a paper, by which he bound himself " to renounce every branch of author- ship " confessed that to increase his income by means of publications was " unworthy the charaCter of an officer ;'' and promised " to deliver up to his Excellency, Count VON TIGE, General of Cavalry, all his essays, memorandums, and papers." Though the EMPEROR disavowed the knowledge of this proceeding, the Baron was arrested soon after, by order of the Prince DE COBOURG, upon which occasion he resigned his commiffion in disgust ; but his IMPERIAL MAJESTY- augmented his pension from 900 to 1300 florins, and restor- ed to him his bond. TRENCK calls this " a down- right - German narrative," and then concludes, in his way, announcing that literature Is now his hobby horse, " on which the Belisarius of Austria and Prussia may probably prance throughout Europe, except where fire and faggots threaten him." His works are now prohibited in the Austrian as well as the Prussian dominions; but he promises to publish in Denmark, where the Prince he says, has confirmed the O. freedom of the press.

Government received advices on Saturday morn- ing from Paris, brought to them by the way of St Maloes. By these we learn, that on the intelli- gence having reached the National Convention of the surrender of Valenciennes, with an account of barbarities said to have been committed by the Au- strians, it immediately resolved, That MARIE ANTONIETTE, the ci- devant Queen of France, should be delivered over to the Revolu- tionary Tribunal. v In consequence of which she Underwent, on the 2d instant, her first interrogatory. Her demeanour was majestic and composed, and her answers were dignified and shrewd.— After her examination, she wished to be sent back to the Temple, but this was peremptorily refused, and she was conducted by a strong guard to the prison of the Conciergerie. As soon as the Revolutionary Tribunal has made a report of the first examination to the Convention, this unfortunate lady is to Undergo another interro- gatory, The QUEEN has not been furnished with the questions that are to be asked, previous to her examination. This indulgence, granted to the KING, to her has been denied. The following resolutions have also been made by the Convention : 1. That all the BOURBON family shall immediate- ly be banished France, except the two children. 2. That a very numerous army shall immediate- ly be encamped between Valenciennes and Paris. That France shall be declared in a state of danger. 4. That every man capable of bearing arms, shall immediately arm for the defence of the Republic-. 5. That a cordon of troops shall be formed on the Frontiers, to act against the common enemy.. 6. that the natives of all nations at war with France, shall be immediately arrested. [ An excep- tion will, we suppose, be made to those who have resided in France for the last 12 months, which constitutes their naturalisation.] 7. That an appeal shall be immediately made- to the People of Great Britain; which appeal is to contain animadversions on the conduct of the Bri- tish Administration in provoking the war ; the ob- ject of the war; loss that has been, and will be sus- tained by Great Britain; the pledge which the British Administration is alleged to have given to Austria and Prussia, relative to the dismemberment of France and finally, an energetic statement of the total ruin in which the cause of Liberty will be involved, should the intentions of the Combined Powers be sufFered to be carried into execution'. CusTiNE was sentenced to death, and was ac- cordingly guillotined. It is said that such was the fury of the mob— they cut his body into five pieces ! BARRERE made a report to the Convention, in which he gravely stated, that an Englishman had been arrested at St Omer's, in whose pocket a let- ter, in the hand writing of Mr PITT, was found containing instructions in what way the money with which he was entrusted should be distributed to ex- cite insurrections in France, and particularly di- recting him to appropriate three millions of livres to promote tumults and massacres at Lyons. It was said also that the Duke of LIANCoURT had yesterday received a letter, stating, that the late unfortunate QUEEN had been torn to pieces by a mob. Similar causes have revived the ferocity which disgraced the French nation twelve months ago; and till those causes cease to operate, no out- rage on humanity can be considered as incredible. Advice is said to be just received, that the pre sent ruling Government of France had been en- tirely overthrown. DANTON, the President of the Convention, had obtained that the Sovereign ; Authority should be veiled in the Committee of Public Safety, to whose disposal, for some secret and very important pur- pose, the sum of twelve hundred millions of livres was Immediately to be applied. The Executive Council was to be suppressed, and DANTON, as President of the Committee of Public Safety, was invested with the powers of a Dictator. < The army of the Royalists, after the defeat of the Republican troops, has again besieged Nantz, and taken several of the out posts near that city. General WIMPFEN'S army is disbanded. PARIS— August 2. Everything is yet tranquil.— The decree relative to the unfortunate QuEEN of FRANCE and her first interrogatory, excited no convulsive emotions in the public mind. The people even beheld her removal from the Temple to the Conciergerie without in- dulging those sentiments of anger which her presence was wont to excite. Accounts have been received here from all parts of France of the plenty of the harvest. In the southern Departments the crop is cut down, and the harvest has commenced in the northern ; of course, there is no scarcity of bread, or indeed of other pro visions at Paris. The father of Madame CORDE, though a man of unblemished character, has been arrested, and is now in prison. THOMAS PAINE is very unpopular, on account of his attachment to BRISSOT, PETIOn, CONDORCET, VERGNIAUD, and GENSONNE.— He means to retire to America in September PHILIP EGALITE has been tried and acquitted at Marseilles. His character is however stained with such strong marks of suspicion, that he is still kept confined, from fear, lest he might go to Paris, and excite new commotions. M. DE CONTI and Madame dE Bourbon set at liberty. They must all quit France speedily in obedience to the decree of the National Convention relative to the Bourbon family. The Department of Calvados has released the Commissioners of the Convention, who were arrested at the beginning of the insurrection.— But PETION and BARbAROUX possess still a very powerful influ- ence over the Department. M. BEAUVALLET presented on the ' 26th ult, the bust of MARAT to the Commune of Paris. Mrs WOlSTONCROFT ( author of the Rights of Wo- men) is here, and is busily employed in writing a History of the French Revolution. Great preparations are making for the celebra- tion of the Civic Festival that is to take place on Saturday the 10th of August. EXECUTION Of CUSTINE. Intelligence received this morning, confirms the account of the execution of CUSTINE. The follow- ing is the substance of the charges that were ad- duced against him :— First, That at the first fight of the enemy he re mained inactive with a view of penetrating into the interior of France, and replunging the nation into slavery, as soon as the insurrection in the depart- ments should become general. That he placed none but suspicious characters at the head of the different corps under his orders, that he might be able to imitate Dumourier, if he had remained in his post. . That he made papillots of the decrees of the Con- vention, and arrested the National Commissioner CELLIOT, for having distributed among the troops the journal of the Mountain. That, whenever he pleased, he disarmed such of his troops as did not embrace his views, to arm those who espoused his cause, and exercised the power of life and death over his soldiers. That he abandoned Mentz to its fate, though he had offered with his head to answer for its safety, and weakened the army destined for its relief, un- der pretence of raising the siege of Conde, which he sufFered to be taken, and of Valenciennes, for the succour of which he did not make the least effort. That he was at Paris and held conferences, with BOURNONVILLE, while DuMOURIER was consummating the most infamous piece of treachery. That he offered to become the Dictator of France, and adopted the tone and style of BUZOT, VERgNIAud, BRISSOT, and others, against the anarchists, disorgani- zers, clubs, MARAT, and the Mountain. That on his own authority, and without a trial, he ordered three volunteers to be shot, under pre- tence of their having committed robbery. That he lavished praises upon the despot of Ber- lin, who is still daily shedding streams of French blood ; and informed the enemy of the plans of the Republican army, before they were executed. That he encouraged all the aristocrats, and dis gusted all the patriots, supported every ill- disposed person, and molested the sans culottes, persecuted the Minister BOUCHOTTE as DUMOURIER did PACHE, be- cause BOUCHOTTE follows the footsteps of PACHE ; and endeavoured to displace General HOUCHARD. That he falsely announced the capture of Conde, with a view to favour the insurrection which was intended to be raised on the 14th of July by the conspirators against the members of the Mountain. And that he wrote a billet to the Commandant at Mentz to surrender. By a courier arrived this morning from Ply- mouth we are informed, that on the evening of the 31st July, Lord HOWE fell in with the French fleet off the island of Bellille. The French reti- ring behind the island of Grovais, it was impossible to follow them, on account of the very difficult na- vigation between that island and the rocks of the Saines. On Saturday last, at three o'clock in the morn ing, Lord HOWE with the fleet put back into Tor- bay. The French fleet, consisting of 18 sail of the line and 3 frigates, have retired into Brest. It was deemed adviseable not to attack them on account Of their superiority, the Englifh fleet amounting only to 17 sail. The Glory, the Atlas, and the Blen- heim, are ordered into commission, for the purpose of reinforcing Lord HOWE. Captain COLE of the Eurydice, and Captain CARPENTER, of the Intrepid, arrived at Torbay on the evening of the 9th, and set off immediately for London with the above intelligence. Another account states, that the French fleet has put into L'Orient, having first had a frigate chaced on shore by Lord HOWE'S squadron. These advices agree in the superiority of num- bers on the part of the French, and further add, that it was much suspected, that as soon as our fleet was out of sight, a detachment of the enemy was to proceed to the West Indies. It is somewhat extraordinary, that the Dutch fleet should keep out of sight, when their assistance to co- operate with Lord HOWE would give so de- cided a superiority to the Britifh force now at sea. There appears something mysterious in this conduct, more than can be attributed to the natural slowness of their High Mightinesses. It is said, that the reason why the Dutch continue in a state of backwardness to arm, arises from the poverty of the government in that country. By the last accounts from Admiral GARDNER it appears, that it was his intention to dispatch a con- siderable part of his fleet to Jamaica, after his ha- ving left Martinique on the 15th of June. As this squadron might reach Jamaica in five or six days, the convoy would no doubt be enabled to sail at the time appointed, in the most perfect security. We learn, that, on the 3d of June, the French naval force at St Domingo consisted of the following ships: At the Cape, L'Eole of 80 guns, Le Sur- veillante of 36, with about 200 sail of merchant- men ; at Port au Prince, L'Amerique of 74 guns; cruizing off Donna Maria, Le Jupiter of' 80 guns, La Fine of 36, L'Astree of 40, La Concorde of 40, and seven sloops of war— In all, three sail of the line, five frigates, and seven sloops. A letter received at Plymouth on Wednesday last, from one of the Officers, dated the 16th of June 1793, dates, that " the Hyaena, on her return to Port Royal from a cruize on the 27th of May last, was captured by the Concord, a French frigate, mounting 48 guns ; and that they were carried into Cape Francois, where they are now all prisoners of war, but expected to be exchanged soon." Yesterday dispatches were received at the Secre- tary of State's Office from the Governors of the Leeward Islands, which were brought over in his Majesty's packet the Carteret, arrived at Fal- mouth. They contain an account of the safe ar- rival of several merchant ships from London, Bris- tol, Liverpool, and Ireland; and that the second fleet of merchant ships were then lading, which were to sail under convoy, the beginning of August, from St Kitts. By our last letters from Valenciennes, we under- stand, that it was intended to make an attack upon the French camp near Maubeuge. From the strength of the allied army, there is very little doubt of the success of this attack. Immediately upon the surrender of Valenciennes, General ClAiRfAiT moved farther towards France with a body of 20,000 men, chiefly cavalry. * On Monday last the Hanoverians struck their tents, and on Tuesday the British were to do the same. The Irish priest who had deserted from the 14th regiment a few days previous to the surrender of Valenciennes, had been tried by a Court Martial, and sentenced to suffer death. He was to be exe- cuted on Tuesday morning, at the head of his regi- ment, immediately previous to its march. The crops of grain, both in Austrian and French Flanders, have been very great. The richest corn fields in the world surrounded the camps of the al- lied armies during the whole siege of Valenciennes. the corn is now all got in, and in the best possible state. The Austrians are filling up the trenches all round Valenciennes; and it is a very general opinion there that the fortifications, will be razed. On Saturday last, when the DuKE of YORK. and. Sir JAMES MURRAY were retiring from head quar- ters to the British camp in a one horse chaise, the horse fell, and both were thrown out with great vio- lence. The Duke was severely hurt in the arm, so as to cause considerable apprehensions lest some of the bones may have been fractured. Sir James was cut in the forehead by the fall. A rumour prevails that the garrison of Valen- ciennes have broken their parole, and have joined, the army which is behind Bouchain— there are let- ters in town mentioning the circumstance, though we do not pledge ourselves for the truth of it. It is reported, that DuMOURIER. is arrested at Aix- la- Chapelle. The French, with some reason, apply themselves to the disengaging Great Britain from the war. Without the spirited contributions of money and stores, by which this country distinguiihes itself it is certain, that hostilities against them could be pro- secuted with very little effect. A plan is now said to be on foot, the acceptance and execution of which will it is faid, be the only condition on which peace will be accorded to France. This plan is to contain an ameliorated and new Con- stitution for France, which will be first sent to the French Princes, and the most unprejudiced Chiefs of the Counter- revolution, that they may make their remarks upon it. It will then be communicated to the Neutral Powers, which are to be previously in- vited to guarantee it. After these preliminary steps, it is to be proclaimed to the French nation in a ma- nifesto, in which it will be declared, that the Com- bined Powers propose, as the fundamental condition of negociations for peace, the acceptance of the said plan, without which they will never acknowledge France as an Independent State. In case of a re- fusal, the whole French nation is to be considered as the enemy of all civilized nations, and treated at such. France, in case of non- acceptance, is threat- ened with total dismemberment, to pay the expences of the war. A gentleman who is arrived from the neighbour- hood of Brest relates, that twelve days ago, a fleet of 17 sail of the line were at sea, from that and the neighbouring ports; that in one day they launched a ship of 130 guns, and two others of 74, and were making great preparations for others. Nine Russian ships of the line, with their frigate', are to sail immediately to the Mediterranean, There are eight of them three- deckers, carrying 100 guns each. They meditate an attack on Toulon, and have onboard 12,000 troops. This is the army that was to have landed in France in November to assist the Allied Powers. If the assistance of the mild and amiable Catharine was equal to her boasts, instead of being an useless, she would have been a most for- midable ally. The Portuguese are said to be not well pleased with the arrival of several English officers, to take command in the squadron fitting out at Lisbon ; and Martin de Mello, who is thought to favour the war more than the other Ministers, is, from this cir- cumstance, become somewhat unpopular. Two Por- tuguese Captains have given in their resignations. The Argo of 44 guns is preparing to convoy to the West Indies a detachment of troops. Eight regiments of infantry are ordered to pre- pare immediately for foreign service. Two hundred of the Horse Guards are to be dis- mounted, and to take the Windsor duty. His MAJESTY has been pleased to settle pensions of 60I. per annum each on the six children of the late Dr HALIFAX, Bishop of Gloucester. The Duchess of GORDON and Sir JOHN MACPHER- SON, with several Nobility, & c. set off for Brigh- ton to- day, to pay their respects to the PRINCE of WALES, it being his Royal Highness's birth- day. Last Saturday evening the Marquis and Mar- chioness of ABERCORN, and suite, arrived in the bay of Dublin, in the Dorset yacht, Sir ALEXANDER SCHOMBERG, from Holyhead ; and on Sundav morn- ing, they set off for his Lordship's seat at Baron's- court, near Strabane. The Rozalie, from Bengal, arrived at Flekewe, in Norway, on the 2d of August, and proceeded for Copenhagen ; she left St Helena the 29th of May, when the Rose, Burbridge, and Valentine were waiting the arrival of other ships from India, and a convoy then expected from Europe. The plants from the Cape de Verd islands, and also the Otaheitan and other exotics, were yederday landed in a very healthy state at Kew Gardens!— Though, in consequence of the war, these plants were on their passage three months longer than the intended time, they are, at present, in a state of vi- gour that will astonish the whole Botanical world. A native of Otaheite has reached England in the Providence; he is a well made, handsome fellow, very good humoured, intelligent, and affable. Two of the natives came away ; but one remained at Ja- maica, to assist in the culture of the bread- fruit. A young Irishman, who had envinced great bra- very at the siege of Valenciennes, concludes one of his letters to his friends thusi "' If an officer's finger is scratched, it is called a wound ; if my head was shot off, it would only be the same ; but if I survived I should contradict them." MAdAmE COrDE, InTErESTInG PARTICULARS OF THE TRIAl AND EXECUTION OF THIS HeROIC WOMAN. None but spectators of this afflicting scene can con- ceive the majestic picture of the immortal COrDE, who from a perfect sense of rectitude and independent spirit, deliberately sacrificed her life for what she conceived would be the redemption of her country, and enlighten the seduced minds of those wretches who adhered to the seditions doctrines of Marat. Her appearance at the Revolutionary Tribunal struck each person with respectful awe, and the idea of her as an assassin was removed from every mind. The Accusateur Public having asked her, for what reafon she had committed this resolute act of murder ? She re- plied with a stoick calmness—" I came to Paris to glori- fy myself by this deed ; to deliver my country from a conspiring monster, and to stop the wound his atrocious hands had opened." Accusateur Public— Are you not ashamed to become a common criminal for assassination ? Mad. Corde — It is a crime to have committed murder, but no disgrace to ascend the scaffold for this act. Accusateur Public— Do you recognize this sanguinary dagger ? Mad Corde I bought that myself in the Palais Royal, and remember it Well; it is the same I plunged into his heart— and am satisfied. This unhappy Lady had two counsellors, one of whom was Mr Stone, an Englishman, who during the last two hours of her trial incessantly felt her pulse, to distinguish if there were any symptoms of burning fever or timidi- ty. He declared they were the same as those of a person contented in their mind. She did not manifest the least irresolution but in one interval, when Mr Stone was so struck with her firmness and answers, that he was quite dismayed, and at that instant her undaunted courage fell, and tears of sweet fallibility declared her gratitude for his pleading for her. She was condemned at three o'clock in the afternoon, after a trial of six hours, to be behead- ed at eight o'clock the same evening on the Place de la Re- volution. She requested this gentleman, as a last favour, which, said she " will make me die contented, to defray all the little debts she had contracted in the prison of the Con- ciergerie, as the property she had brought with her to Paris was confiscated Mr Stone promised and executed her request. The scene which her execution presented was magnifi- cently awful. The place was thronged with multitudes ; and the most feeling minds were excited to behold the A mazonian courage of this unfortunate lady in her last moments. It was with much difficulty she arrived at the scaffold. The fish women and others, belonging so the markets, were near tearing her to pieces, with oaths and impre- cations the most horrid. The gens d'armes and horse of the Republic prevented this horrid act, by galloping up with lifted sabres. Madame CORDE ascended the scafFold with intrepidi- ty. She appeared serene and reconciled to death. She pulled off her bonnet and neckerchief herself, but re- coiled when the executioner went to bind her legs, and fsid, Are you so bad as to expose me here ?" He an swered, " No, it is to bind you." " Do it then," she replied with firmness. The inhuman monster, when shewing her head to the people after her execution, slapped her twice on the cheek! This was considered as such an atrocious act, that the very Tribunal who had condemned her to death, sentenced her executioner to twelve years imprisonment in irons. The corpse of Madame CORDE was buried in the church- yard of St Magdelaine, near the grave of Louis XVI. she having been executed in the same section with that unfortunate Monarch. THUNDER STORM. A young man named Hutchins, who lived in Houghton street, Clare- market, sitting with his father and a few friends at a public- house in Oxford- street, near an open window, during the thunder storm on Wednesday even- ing, was struck dead by the lightning. No other person in the company suffered the smallest injury. s At Wickham, the house of A. Atherley, Esq. was en- tered by the lightning, and a bed and fome other articles were set fire to and consumed. Various accounts are received of other losses sustained by this storm, which was truly tremendous and striking- ly awful. The storm was also severely felt at Portsmouth, and in the neighbourhood. Several wherries were overset, but providentially no lives lost. The west wall of the Jews burying- ground was blown down; an ox, the property of Mr WAY, was killed ; a tree on the ramparts was much damaged, & c. MARgATE, AUG. 8. Yesterday between seven and eight o'clock in the even- ing there happened the most violent gale of wind ever re- membered in this place; the shutters of one of the shops near the parade were blown into the middle of the street, several people were thrown off their legs, the swifts of a windmill near Westbrook were torn off, a stack of hay was blown down near the same place, one of the bathing machines that stood near the Rope ground was blown over, as was a waggon loaded with wheat; the awning over one of the bathing- houses was entirely torn off. It was suc- ceeded by the most tremendous thunder, lightning, and rain, which lasted many hours. HARWICH, AUg. 8. Last night we experienced the most awful scene we ever witnessed. About seven o'clock the sky to the south- west was covered with black clouds, and the rain descended in large drops, the wind at this time being S. S. E. blowing strong. Soon after the rain increased, and the whole hoii zon appeared to open with tremendous peals of thunder and violent flashes of lightning, which continued for some time; at the close of which an electrical fluid, or ball of fire, seemed to burst, which tore down one side of a chim- ney belonging to the house of Mr Philip Fennings, made its passage through the roof, and passed through some closets adjoining to the chimney. Providentially no other accident happened. Every room was filled with smoke of a sulphureous smell. We also learn, that two thatched cottages at Felistone were eet on fire by the lightning, and burnt down. WEST INDIES. " His Majesty's Ship Hector, Garlisle Bay, Barbados, June 11. 1793. " We have been cruizing for some time off the island of Martinique. The royal and opposite party there are nearly equal, and we are here for the pur- pose of conveying a body of troops to assist the for- mer, and, as we hope, to take possession of the island. " The 21st regiment, 32d, and flank companies of the line, form our little army ; and this day an order has been issued by the Admiral, to disembark the marines of the fleet, to form a battalion for that attack, to be under the command of Capt. RAM- SAY of that corps. " We are to attack the town of St Pierre's, which is full of all sorts of stores and shipping ; but Fort Bourbon there is very strong, and with a garrison commanded by M. ROCHAMBEAU, appears at least sufficient for our present force." The books of the several funds, the dividends on which become due on the 10th of October, will shut and open as follow, viz. three per cent, re- duced shut Aug. 28. open Oct. 24.; four per cent, ( hut Sept. 30. open Oct. 29 ; long ann. shut Sept. 7., open Oct. 29.; short ann. shut Sept. 9. open Oct. 23. The great electrical battery, at Haerlem, which contains 550 square feet of coated surface, is found to have an instantaneous effect in destroying life, by depriving the animal system of all irritability. Se- veral animals, which can scarcely be immediately killed by any other means, have died the moment the shock was applied to them. An evening or two ago the Commanding Officer of one of the regiments at Ashdown damned a Sub- altern for being a little too late on Parade the o- ther immediately delivered up his sword, and told the superior that he had another at home at his ser- vice. The consequence of which spirited conduct has been, that an apology was made the next day. Ludicrous Mistake.— An order was lately issued by the proper officer at Portsmouth, to prevent the landing at the Sally Port of any of the Princesses of the Point, from the men of war lying off there.— An old soldiers on duty, charged with the restriction, taking Lady R , and the wife of a Naval Cap- tain, who attempted to land, to be, as he said, " of the sorts" took charge of them, and had them some time in his custody ; but he was shortly after convinced of his want of distinction, by being him- self close confined. The following notice has passed through three or four Dublin papers, in an advertisement of the En- niskillen races.—" N. B. A main of cocks to be fought during the meeting, and all horses to qua- lify on oath, if required. A person who affected to pass for a great scholar, was asked by a friend, what was meant by posthu mous works ? Works, said he, that a man writes after he's dead. DIED, On the 5th inst. at Staindrop, in the 61st year of his age John Lee, Esq. Member of Parliament for Higham Ferrars EVENING COURANT. THURSDAY— AUGUST IJ. Our readers will find the interesting intelligence from Paris fully stated in the preceding page. The infatuated and execrable party which prevails in the Convention are about to add to their multiplied crimes, the murder of the unfortunate Queen ; who, under every accumulated insult and affliction, sup- ports herself with the magnanimity that has con- stantly distinguished her. It is impossible to account for this intended outrage on humanity, which will not only increase the horror that prevails against the Convention in other countries, but probably di- rect the hatred of the Parisian populace, which hi- therto has been artfully attached to the Queen, to- wards themselves. On Monday evening was married here, Dr Wil- LIAM FARQUHArSON, to Miss MARGARET CAMPbELL, daughter of the Rev. Mr William Campbell, mini- ster in Lillie's Leaf. Colonel PRINGLE, of the corps of engineers, died lately at St Vincent's. Died on Saturday last, Mr JAMES WYLLIE, silver- smith in Glasgow. Mr GEORGE BATHGATE, surgeon in Grenada, died there the 18th June last. Died, on Sunday last, at the Manse of Dalton, the Rev. Dr BRYDEN, minister of that parish. Died, on Wednesday last, Mr JOHN DICKSON of Upper Locherwoods. Friday last, died Mr KENNETH M'CALLuM, mer- chant in Glasgow, in consequence of a fall from his horse. Died at Stonehaven, on the 28th ult. the Rev. ALEX. GREIG, Presbyter of the Episcopal Church of Scotland, in the 82d year of his age, and 50th of his ministry. Letters received this day from Lisbon, dated the zoth ult. say, that the Flora frigate had arrived there, and was to sail the day following, and to call for the Oporto ships. On Monday arrived in Leith Roads his Majesty's armed ship Queen, Capt. RAMSAY, from the Nore. Monday afternoon, the trade for London and the southward, sailed from Leith roads, under convoy of the Echo sloop of war, Capt. HALKET. The convoy from the Nore is appointed to sail the 20th inst. with the trade to the Frith of Forth. This morning arrived in Leith Roads eight trans- ports, under convoy of the Diomede of 44 guns, Captain SMITh. They are intended to convey the 57th and SEAFORTH'S regiments to Portsmouth. The Jane, TAYLOR, from Petersburgh, is arrived" in Leith Roads, in twelve days from the Sound.— She came with a large fleet for England, under con- voy of the Ceres frigate HIGH COURT OF JUSTICIARY. Tuesday James M'Kay, found guilty by the verdict of a Jury on Saturday, was brought to the bar to receive sentence; before pronouncing which, Lord Henderland, Prefident, addressed him in a very pathetic speech. He is to be executed on Wednesday the 18th September next. Thereafter came on the trial of John Gibb, late gentleman's servant, ind George Bearhope, or Birup, or Bearup, late- gardener, indicted for entering the shop of Andrew Lawson grocer in the Lawnmarket, upon the evening of the 15th or 16th of January last, and carrying off a drawer, containing three guinea notes, some silver, a French crown piece, marked J. Mc C. seven. silver tea spoons, and a pair of sugar tongs, marked Mc.-— And upon the evening of the 18th of the said month, having met with Walter Forbes, grocer in Canongate, at the Netherbow, they jostled him, and took from him a silver watch. And, upon some evening in the month of February last, the panncls having followed John Saunder- son, Dunsyre carrier, into Brown's Close, Luckenbooths, they stole his pocket- book, containing three guineas, with a promissory note of 36I. and other papers. The pan- nels severally pled guilty. The Lord Advocate, from some favourable circum. stances in their case, restricted the libel. The Jury being sworn, they inclosed in the robing- room. While the Jury were inclosed, Mr Muir was brought to the bar; and his petition being again read, the Lord Advocate consented to the Court's recalling the outlawry. Mr Muir being asked if he had any thing to say, he bowed, and addressed the Court in a short firm speech, in which he observed, that so far from hurting his coun- try, he believed he had done it essential service; that he wished for nothing more than a trial, in which he was per- suaded his innocence would appear; and so confident was he of this, if the forms of Court, or the law permit- ted it, he Would wish a Jury to be impannellcd upon him at that very moment. The outlawry was recalled.— After which the Lord Advocate presented a petition, praying that he might be recommitted, and said that he proposed bringing 0n the trial about the 29th or 30th of the present month. Mr Muir petitioned the Court to be admitted to bail. The petition bore in substance, that, in a crowded jail, and in a room open to all sorts of company, he had not an op- portunity of preparing his defence. He was admitted to bail— the penalty 2000 merks Scots. A petition and complaint was read from William Skir- ving, prisoner in the tolbooth, accused of publishing se- ditions papers, complaining of wrongous imprisonment, and praying that it might be served on tbe Sheriff- depute and Procurator fiscal of the shire of Edinburgh ; and that he might be set at liberty. The Lord Advocate, as coun- sel for the Procurator fiscal, stated, that he was well ac- quainted with the business, and that the Fiscal had acted in consequence of directions from him; that other peo- ple had been apprehended on suspicion of being concern- ed in these publications, and that some of them had been admitted to bail. If Mr Skirving thought proper, he might apply to the Magistrate who committed him, or their Lordships, and he had no doubt he would be suc- cessful. This was the only legal method ; and if he was oppressed, or imprisoned without just cause, he might bring an action in the civil court for damages. The Court, after delivering their opinions, dismissed the peti- tion as incompetent. The Jury on Gibb and Bearhope gave in their verdict, all in one voice finding the pannels guilty, in consequcnce of their judicial declaration. They were transported Be- yond seas for life; and to suffer death if found afterwards Great Britain. Lord Henderland gave them a very suit- able exhortation before they were taken from the bar. On Saturday night last, Captain MORTON, of the Resolution, arrived in Clyde. He left Quebec the 7th July. On the 16th, near the island of Beek, in the river St Laurence, he spoke the Eweretta, Capt. Featonby, in the night, who informed him that the London fleet, consisting of six ships for Montreal, and three for Quebec, were all well in the river; and on the 18th, in the afternoon, he was on board the Lillias, Capt. Davies, who gave him the same information. The following Ladies and Gentlemen came passengers: Lieut. Cowan, royal navy ; Capt. Lithbridge, 60th regiment ; Captain William Erskine, 37th regiment; Captain Walker, Royal Fuzileers ; Mrs Walker; Miss Walker Miss Maria Gray ; Mr Hunter, merchant, Quebec ; Mrs Bunyan ; and Mr Edwards. On Monday the 5th August, in consequence of a royal presentation, Mr HUGH M'PHERSON was ad- mitted to the office of Professor of Oriental Lan- guages in the University and King's College of A- berdeen, in the room of Mr Alex. Bell, deceased. The North Fencible regiment, who were embo- died at Aberdeen, are ordered to march for Perth. Monday, a serjeant of the Royals dropt down in the street, and expired instantly. The sitting Magistrate has sentenced Janet White, an old offender, to be drummed through the High Street and Cowgate, on Wednesday the 21st inst. and afterwards banished the city and liberties. She was convicted of stealing cloaths from a bleaching- green. PHILADELPHIA— June 30. The Government of this country observes a strict neutrality, and imprisons any of their own subjects who attempt to fit out, or go on board any French privateers. ,' We have some violent spirits who would wish to embroil us in a war, but the good sense of the public in general are decidedly against it. There is a French frigate, L'Ambuscade, which brought out their Ambassador, Citizen GENET, which has infested our coast for some time past, and has taken many prizes; the ship William, of Glas- gow, is still here, in the clutches of the captor : It is surprising that Britain has never sent a ship of war to protect their trade on the American coast, which has suffered very severely since the commence- ment of hostilities. DUMFRIES— August 13.' Saturday night last, the Hon. Capt. ADAM GOR- DON, and Capt. MONRO of the Fencibles, in crossing the river Ken in a carriage, about nine o'clock, at a ford opposite to New Galloway, were forced down the stream by the sudden swell of the current — perceiving however their danger, from the water getting in at the carriage doors, they immediately jumped into the river, almost to the chin, and with difficulty regained the bank. The driver, by a dexterous turn of the horses and carriage, happily preserved both, and got safe to land. The sudden inundations of this river, the frequent alterations of the fords, joined to the many fatal ac- cidents they have occasioned during late years, ought to warn strangers 0n the one hand to he cau- tious in crossing it, and on the other, demonstrate the very great necessity of a bridge over it. The Committee appointed by the General Meet- ing of the Managers of the Charity Work- house of Edinburgh, at their last meeting on the 7th of Au- gust instant, to inquire as to the debts owing by the house, request in those who, are creditors to the house, on or before the 31st day of August instant, to transmit to RICHARD RICHARdSON, the Treasurer, their respective claims and accounts,, specifying their debts, and the particular articles and dates of furnishing, with, depositions 0n the verity thereof, to be considered and reported by the Committee.— Such as neglect to comply with this notice, will have themselves to blame if their claims or accounts shall be considered as not owing. At the request of the Society in Scotland for pro- mpting Religious Knowledge among the Poor, a ser- mon is to be preached next Sabbath in the, Tron Church, at six o'clock in the evening— The collec- tion 0n that occasion to be applied towards the pur- chasing of books for the poor, and the other objects of that institution. A correspondent, who signs himself " A friend to Oeconomy," wishes to inform those families who are so unfortunate as to have sour ale or beer, that a small quantity of salt of tartar, or salt of worm- wood, put into the liquor, and well stirred about immediately before it is drank, makes it pleasant and wholesome. The person who recommends this saved the whole brewing of a quarter of malt from being thrown away by the above means. De VIRO CLARo ATQUE ERUDITO GEORGIO STUART, L. L. D.

Mores hominum acriter inspexit, Et feliciter depinxit. Quid magis elegans, quid veritati magis consentaneum, Quam quas exprimere solebat imagines virorum clarorum? Quis auctores Latinos animosius digniusve explicavit? Quis antiquitates Romanas clarius illustravit' Quis elegantias felicius elicuit, Ant difficultates discussit ? Opus contexuit magni laboris atque pretii, Supplementum scilicet atque additamentum Thesauri viri clarissimi Roberti Ainsworth, Quod, summo cum literarum detritmento, Cautione et timiditate bibliopolarum, cheu! est interiturum, Modicas industria atque cura comparavit opes;- Quibus in villa sua prope Musselburgum," Viginti fere annos, nec turpem nec injucundam transegit Senectutem.
