AIRE's ESSENCE of HERBS — This Medicine, which is prepared from Herbs only, may be truly cal- led a Specific for that dreadful disease the Gravel, as hath been shewn by a number of testimonies. It will likewise give cer- tain relief in the most exeruciitiug Fits of the Stone,- and is equally efficacious 111 the Dropsy.— The following is an addi- tional proof of its virtues. TO MR RobERT AIRE. . " SIR— I have received a very extraordinary cure from the Effence of Herb's, which you are at liberty to publish. I had . been afflicted with the Gravel for upwards of eleven years in the most dreadful degree, being at times totally Snr. '-- able of attending business, and in such excruciating pain that I could not bear to - be moved. It was accompanied with a violent windy complaint in the bowels. and my tegs were very much swelled. I applied to your medicine in the year 1791. which immediately relieved me in a fit of the disorder, attended with great agony; and, by continuing the use of it for a short time, every symptom of my Complaint entirely disap- peared, and 1 have enjoyed 1 perfect state of health ever since. — I am, & c.

Another striking illustration of the superior virtues of HAYMAN's MAREDANT's DROPS. WM. TRUSLOVE, aged 15 years, had the Scrofula, 0r King's Evil, to a degree difficult of description, The ulcers ill his legs and feet perforated to the bones., par- ticularly oh his insteps and round his ancles, which became stiff and prevented his walking; hut what was moat extra- ordinary, the thumb of his left hand enlarged to an incredi- ble size ; the joints thereof likewise became inflexible, and full of deep ulcers of the most alarming hue, on which the Slight- est touch gaVe excruciating torture, and eminently, exhibited the terrible havock this wretched disease is capable of pro- ducing. He had been five weeks in St Thomas's Hospital, and discharged incurable ; he was then five weeks more an out- patient to the London Infirmary, but left it bcCause he would not consent to the amputation of the thumb, which Mr Blizard, surgeon of that institution, advised ;— indeed; fo extaordinary was the appearance of his hand, that another gentleman of the faculty, to whom his father had recourse, took its impression in wax, which, besides giving him fome trifling medicine and lotion, was all he did for him when re- commended to Mr Hayman, who deprecated the idea of amputation, and put him under an immediate course of his Drops; these soon retarded the progress of his disorder part of the carious bone exfoliated— the thumb at length re- duced to its natural size— the virulent sores gradually healed up— his Joints became more and more flexible. He now walks with pleasure, has left off, after years usage, all kind of bandage from his thumb— has the free use thereof; and his parents have the satisfactory prospect of his administer- ing to his own support, which, before he took Mr Hayman's Drops, they had nearly dispaired of. MR HAYMAN, London, Aug. 27. 1793. As I consider it no less due to the afflicted than to yourself; I think it right that you should add the above state of my son's case to your public list of cures; and as: a sight of your patient ( the havock his disorder made being so very appa- rent) may be still more satisfactory you may refer to hint at my house, No. 1. Crown Court Seething Lane; or to me, at Mr Brook's gun- manufactory, George Street, Tower Hill, who knows the affliction my son was in, and in whose employ I have been these 17 years I am, Sit-,, your humble fervatit, WM. TRUSLOVE, Gurt- Smith. ' SIR, As it is my duty, I add my acknowledgments to my fa- ther's, for the great benefit I have obtained By your Drops. WM. TRUSLOVE Jun. O" As the words " J. Hayman, Golden Square," are en- graved in, and form a real part of the stamp upon each bot- tle of those celebrated Drops, no person who examines it can have a spurious sort unwarily obtruded upon them.

NATIONAL CONVENTION. November 4 -— concluded. After several discussions of little importance, Le Gendre observed, that at Rouen each person is only allowed a quarter of a pound of bread a- day ; that the neighbouring parishes refuse to bring in provi- sions to that city, because it was said in the Con- vention, that Rouen was full of store- houses ; yet after the stricted search, nothing was found in them. . That, however, to compensate in some measure for what Was wanting, seven millions are to be levied on the rich inhabitants, in order to buy corn in fo- reign parts ; but that until these succours arrive, it is necessary to send corn to Rouen.— Agreed. ''. Barrere said, that the Committee of Public Wel- fare was preparing a report relative to what en sued after the 5th of October near Laval, on the Representatives of the People, on the Generals, and on the suspicious patriotism of the inhabitants of that town, which was become the centre of a next Ven- dee. From the attempt of the rebels to open to themselves a passage towards the sea, or even to fall back, he concluded that they were very weak, and in a bad condition. St Just and Le Bas write from the army of the Rhine, that they are busy in clearing the corps of officers of improper persons; that the number of pa- triots among them is very inconsiderable ; and that a previous measure of this nature would have saved the lines of Weissembourg. They further observe, that they have received a trumpet from the enemy, by which they sent the following answer : French Republic receives nothing from its enemies; nor fends them any thing but lead bullets." Extract of a Report made by Gen. SAUTER, command- ing a Division, to the Commander in Chief, relative to the action which happened near SAVERNE, on the 23d and Head Quarters, Schilligkeim, near Strasbourg, October 27. " I was attacked yesterday and the day before by the enemy at an early hour, and we fought until night. " The enemy had a numerous and heavy artillery; and as I had on the first day Only four- pounders to oppose to theirs, they succeeded in forcing me from a post, and in gaining some ground; but the pieces of eight and the flying artillery which you sent to me, joined to the rein- forcement dispatched to me By General Ferinan; being' arrived, I charged them with vigour. My infantry per- formed wonders, and bore the shock of their numerous cavalry, without, giving ground,- and killed many. 1 in return charged their infantry, which occupied a very fine situation, and fucceeded in breaking through them, and putting them to flight. If night had not come 0n we should have taken their artillery. By every account I received, and what I saw myself of their carrying away the dead, I swear that we have killed at least 500. They left on the field of Battle at least 100, whom we did not give them an opportunity to carry off. They were bu- ried this. day. I have lost 12 men killed, officers and sol- diers, and 100 wounded, few of them dangerously. ( Signed) SAUTeR." Barrere read two letters from Strasbourg, from St Just and Le Bas, requiring the Convention to . approve different resolutions which they have taken, - and from which they expeft the happiest effects. The substance of these letters is :— that St Just and Le Bas have resolved, 1. That every military man who shall be found hid in any part of that town, shall be instantly shot. 1. That the Municipality of Strasbourg shall supply a certain quantity of shoes for the defenders of the country — and such of the inhabitants as will not assist in this par- ticular, shall be considered as bad citizens; and be fined. 3. That a loan of two millions shall be called for from the rich, to supply the wants of the poor, and to repair the fortifications. 4. . That there shall be instituted a commission for the better supplying the city with provisions. .5. That Administrators. not obeying the requisitions made by the agents of Government shall be imprisoned till the end of the war. '. The Convertion confirmed these resolutions On the motion of Camille Desmoulins, the Con- vention decreed, That the late law concerning foreigners shall not extend to physicians.'' ' November 5. Lequinio and Laignelot; Representatives of the People at Rochefort, write, that eight constitutional Priests and a Protestant minister had abjured their er- rors in the Temple of Truth, ci- devant the parish church, and had promised to teach nothing but sound morality, and the hatred of all political and religi- ous tyranny. They confirmed their oath by burn- ing their letters of ordination. There is to be in future in this town but one church ; and a copy of the Rights of Man, and the Constitutional Act, is - deposited in the tabernacle. The same Representatives write, that the Revo- lutionary Tribunal, which they have just established in that town, will make the Aristocrats experience the guillotine; that they annulled 1,500,000 livres republican assignats, upon which the rebels of La Vendee had a fixed royal inscriptions, A deputation of the Committee of Safety at Montauban has denounced the Representative Tail- liser, who is on the point of marrying an aristocrat, j to whom he sacrifices every thing, and who by his inactivity and his. unfitness for revolutionary mea- sures, spoils every thing which is done by the other Representatives, Chaudron, Rousseau, and Bandos. The same Deputies likewise denounce the Admi- nistrators of the Department du Lot, all Federalists, and of Bridot's party. They shall be dismissed, and they demand the report of the additional articles re- lative to the imprisonment of suspected persons. General Carteaux, very desirous not to leave the brave soldiers with whom he so often conquered the rebels, remonstrates against his nomination to the command of the army of Italy. " I am ( says he) the son of a dragoon, and have attain- ed the most honourable situation by military labours alone I leave my comrades with infinite regret; I shall, notwith- standing, endeavour to merit the confidence which the Convention places in me. The post of a Republican is every where.—; Be satisfied with regard to Toulon; the in- famous ruffians which this city contains, cannot escape the national vengeance which surrounds them on every quarter." Referred to the Committee of Public Safety. The Commons of Boulogne, in the department- of Paris, consisting of 3600 inhabitants,- complain that they have neither corn nor flour. Richaud, Ehrmann, and Soubrani Representatives of the People at the army of La Moselle, sent from Saarbruck sixteen crosses of St Louis, with the names of the officers who gave them up. They sent likewise a diploma found among the records of the soi- disant. Prince of Nassau Saarbruck, by which the great tyrant, Joseph II. Emperor, legitimates the little despot William- Frederick Augustus de Freital The Attorney- General of the department of La Mandha ( the Channel) announces, that on the first report of the arrival of the rebels La Vendee near Rennes, he caused all the department to be put into motion, and cause'd all the suspicious characters to be arrested, which procured 2500 guns, and four pieces of cannon, which served to arm the contingent body which was destined to go to Cherbourg, and replace the four regiments marching against the rebels. Every thing is in a state of requisition at Avranches. Men, horses, corn mills, tailors, shoemakers, saddlers, & c. The Administrators have opened a communication with Rennes.— General Peyre is with the army of La Manche, which is marching against the enemy A deputation of women complained of the decree which prohibits their meetings. Their petition was interrupted by the order of the day. . The Commissioners at Brest have regenerated the staff of the navy. The widow of the late Farmer General Kolly ( ex- ecuted some months since for lending money to the "^ The R° yal Brothers), whose execution was delayed by pregnancy, solicited her pardon. A call of the or der of the day. On the motion of Sergent the Minister of the Home Department was required to execute the de- cree which orders a statue to be erected to the me- mory of Jean Jacques Rousseau, Montaut moved that a statue be likewise erected to the memory of Marat and Brutus.— Adopted November 6. Barrere gave an accoant of the state of the fugi- tive rebels of La Vendee It appears that the Re publican van guard, which was driven back at L- val, communicated a panic to the rest of the army ; that they lost some patriots and some arms ; that while preparations were making to surround the re- bels, one of their columns marched otf for May enne ; that these ruffians have no fixed plan ; that some of them wished to go to Rennes, while others carried their extravagance so far as to attempt marching against Paris. They likewise talked of penetrating into the department of La Manche, in order to be in the neighbourhood of Jersey but troops, which were marching towards Talaise, in order to oppose the rebels who may have escaped from La Vendee, and who it is thought may en- deavour to penetrate into Calvados, or the depart- ment of La Manche. Mallarme and Lacoste, in a letter from Metz, dated the 3d, date, that they have called together all the well disposed citizens to strike a great blow upon the enemy ; that from Savern to Metz . they have found none but Republican's, who have immediately risen to march against the enemy ; that 500,000 livres have been deposited at the Commune House, and a great number of coats, breeches, and shirts, which have cloathed 3000 men ; and that an extra- ordinary imposition is about to be levied 0n the rich for paying the troops. EXECUTION OF PHILIP EGALITE Arrived- FOREIGN - O Holland. 0 Flanders. 1 Lisbon. MAILS. Due— 1 Holland. I Flanders, that fearing the army of 25,000, which the depart ments of La Sarthe, and of L'Isle and Vilaine sent against them, they evacuated Mayenne, bending their march toward Domfront ( in Normandy). The Committee has taken measures to prevent their re- passing the Loire and returning to La Vendee. There will Certainly soon be a general engagement. The General of the second division of the army of the Ardennes is busy in burning the relics-— in pillaging place wherever he can find it— and in levying contributions in the enemy's country-, The Administrators of the district Of St Paul du Var have armed the citizens with fuzils, sabres, pikes, axes, spades, pitch- forks, & e. have obliged the enemy to abandon the village of Consegades; have forced them to raise the blockade of Gillette, and to leave four pieces of cannon behind, besides killing a great number,' and taking several pri- soners. A female citizen deposited 2400 livres in gold to be changed into assignats. Honourable mention of this circumstance was demanded; but Cambon op; posed it, saying : " People: will some time or other be extremely glad that we have received pieces of a metal which bear the effigy of a tyrant, in ex- change for Republican assignats. We shall soon pro- pose a sumptuary law, which will bury this dross a- gain in the earth."— Passed to the order of the day. ' Merlin Vendee, a heap4 three or four villages, the inhabitants of which came Out to meet the Republican army.. - At present all the neighbouring departments have risen to extir- pate the banditti. . . ' La Planche wrote from Caen, under date of the 4th, that he intended to set out the following day, with Generals Sepher and Tilly at the head of some PARIS November 7. The monster Egalite yesterday underwent an in- terrogatory before the Revolutionary Tribunal. All that is hitherto known of what passed there, relates wholly to the charge respecting the intimacy sub- sisting between Egalite and Sillery as follows: Judge—" Did not a great intimacy subsist be- tween you and Sillery Egalite—" I was attached to Sillery until the mo- ment that I suspected his patriotism; when I did so, I refused any longer to see him." Judge—" You have nevertheless committed the care of your children to his wife, who is now with them abroad." - Egalite—" Yes; but that was at a time when I had no cause to suspect Sillery; in other respects, that carbuncled villain has just expiated his crimes like his accomplices." This most villainous, mod cowardly, and most infamous of wretches, was condemned to death at the same sitting at which he was tried ; and yester- day evening, at half past five o'clock, he was ex- ecuted on the Place de la Revolution, three hours after judgement was pronounced against him. His conduct was becoming his past life— that of a cow- ard, and a man oppressed with the stings of Con- science. He had lived detested despised— he died unpitied by all mankind ! On the same day, and on the same scaffold, was likewise executed, Coustard, another Deputy to the Convention. Four other persons, convicted of counter- revolu- tionary designs, were condemned to death the day before yesterday ; and were executed within a few hours after their condemnation. * Bailly, the late Mayor, will soon suffer a similar fate, he has been transferred to the, Conciergerie, and so has General Carles. Generals Houchard and Brunnet; and the Abbe Barthelemy, the author of the Voyages of Anachar- sis, have also been transferred from the Abbaye to the Conciergerie. The total number of persons confined in the se- veral prisons were yesterday 3335. The wife of Rolland is shortly to appear before the Revolutionary Tribunal, to give information respecting the retreat of her husband, or to undergo the punishment which was reserved for the Ex Mi- nister. * Madame Kolli, wife of the Ex- Farmer General of that name, had obtained a suspension of her sen- tence, by declaring herself with child. The time for that proof being elapsed, she was yesterday, like her husband some time ago, delivered over to the guillotine. Lemoyne, Wamser, Lacombe, and Purg- nere, Members of the Popular Commission at Bour- deaux, have shared the same fate. At the Jacobins, Chabot has strongly insisted a- gainst the liberty of the press, with regard to De- mocratic Government. Coupe has maintained, that it was not Pitt who indicated the crowd that daily assembled at the bakers doors, but our own counter- revolutionists. Whilst the Revolutionary Tribunal, by bloody executions, indulges the public taste in these kind of spectacles, the Municipality is employed in effa- cing all signs of Aristocracy from the streets, by calling them after the great names of antiquity, such as those of Lycurgus, Cato, and Regulus; in order that if the French have not the virtues of these an- cient Republicans in their hearts, they may at least have their names constantly in view. A plan on this subject has been presented by the Section of Pikes, which has been referred to the Administration of Public Works, upon its being observed by . Member of the Commune, " That the richest Sec tion had monopolized the most illustrious names." The army of the Eastern Pyrenees has just re- pulsed the Spaniards. General Dagobert pursues his conquest on the Spanish territory ; he has taken the burgh of Montailla and the village of Martinet, The rage of the Republicans was so great, that they plundered and burnt two villages. . In an address which Grosse- du Rocher, and Bissy, Members of the Convention, have made to their fel low- citizens of the department of La Mayenne, they remind them, as a certain truth in the principles of the French Revolution, that the throne and altar have at all times Oppressed the earth ; and that people must no longer be their slaves." In virtue of the decree passed againd the city of Lyons, the demolition of the superb front of the Place de Bellecour has been begun. LETTER FROM MONSIEUR. Letter written by MONSIEUR to M. le Marechal de BROG- lie, dated Ham, Nov. 1. desiring him to send a copy of it to all towns in which Emigrants reside. " GENTLEMEN, . "- I have this instant received the news of the horrid outrage which has terminated the days of the Queen my sister- in- law. The grief and indignation which it excites in me, can be allayed only by the concern you take in it True Frenchmen and faithful subjects, we ought in a two fold degree feel the horror of this crime. It is by re doubling our zeal for the service of our young and unfor- tunate King that we can one day render such cruel losses less grievous, and effice the stain which monsters would imprint on the French name. Such, I am well convinced are the sentimcnts which animate you. Such are those which my, brother and I will preserve till we breathe our last sigh, and such is the end to which all our efforts tend. " Accept, Gentlemen, the assurance of my sentiments towards you. ( Signed) LOUIS STANISLAUS XAVIER Yesterday morning dispatches were received in town from the Earl of YARMOUTH, near Landau, which were brought hy Mr Timms, the messenger who left his Lordship yesterday se'ennight. The principal news brought by this messenger is a confirmation (£ the intelligence chat the siege of Landau was railed by the Prussians ; and that it is converted into a blockade bv the troop; serving under the Prince DE CONDE. The garrison of Landau consists of about 7000 troops. The Prussians raised the siege of Landau on Tuesday se'ennight last; and the Duke of BRUNS- WICK has retired near the mountains at Marchelles- We shall not here repeat all the observations thrown out in private letters concerning the Duke of BRUNS- WICK, and the crooked politics of his PRUSSIAN MA- JESTY : But both are condemned in- the most unqua- lified terms. General WuRMSER is encamped about three leagues from Strasbourg. Letters were also yesterday received from Lord HERVEY at Florence, and Lord ROBERT FitzGerald at Borne. On the < J; h inft. the head- quarters of his Royal Highness the Duke of YORK, were at the Abbey of St Martin's, at Tournay. The British head quarters are said to be fixed at Bruges, during the winter, and those of the Prince of SAXE- COBOURG at Tournay. By accounts from Brussels, of the 11th, we learn, that the French had made a movement in the neigh- bourhood of Poperingue, and appeared to have some design again upon Menin ; but the force in that quarter, aided by the zeal of the brave inhabitants of West Flanders, who are now all armed, has in- duced them to desist. The PrinCe de COBOURG holds his head- quarters at Cateau Cambresis. He has sent forward a corps of 30,000 men, and it is even reported that he has in- vested Landrecies. His object, it is said. is to o- blige General JOURDAN to attack him, to open a way for the arrival of his convoys. As it would be ne- cessary to give battle in a vast plain, which faces the Austrain army, the latter would have a great advantage, on account of its numerous cavalry. It is also certain that JOURSIAN'S army is considerably weakened, in consequence of the detachment which he has been obliged to send for the defence of Alsace. and the defertion that subsists in that part of his army which consists of the requisition men. The French seem to have a serious plan for in- tercepting the advices which may may be sent fron this country to Spain. The EL Quiro packet is known to be taken The El Campo is supposed to be in the same predicament; and the Reyna Louisa, which is arrived, with the last mail, at Falmouth, was chaced quit across the Bay of Biscay, by 3 French 50 gun ship, and six frigates. Among the passengers taken in the El Quiros pac- ket, and carried into France, was Mr JARDIN, who was going Consul General to Corunna, and family. The Thames frigate, of 32 guns, which we have reason to fear is taken by the French, was carrying out dispatches for Gibraltar. Advices from Bourdeaux inform us, that on the 15th of October all the British subjects in that city were imprisoned by order of the Convention. The place of their confinement is the Carmelite convent, where it is however added, their treatment is wita every possible mitigation so violent a measure can admit of. The French fleet, consisting of 22 ships of the line, and 10 frigates, were at anchor in Brest water on the 4th instant. The ship le Terrible, had on board M. de GALL, Admiral of the fleet; his Cap- tain, M. de BONNEFOND, is considered as a man with- out experience. M. de FLOTTE commands the Cote d'Or, ( ci- devant les Etats de Bourgogne). He is a raw boy, and without the smallest knowledge of naval mat- ters. He commands the second division. M. le LARGE, formerly Capitaine de Port, commands the Bre- tagne, and he is Admiral of the third division. The other vessels in Brest harbour, whose officers are known, are le Neptune, commanded by M. de Fu- STEL, late Sub- Lieutenant de port;— I'Indomptable, by M. de KARMARTIN ; the frigate la Galatee, by JAMES DE FLOTTE ; I'Insurgeante, by M. THEVENAR, jun;— la Carmagnole, by M. L'ALLEMAND. Since the return of the fleet, the discontent still continued, but without coming to any act of vio- lence, until it was ordered that a guillotine should be put on board the Core d'Or. The crew refused to receive so unwelcome a stranger, which occasion- ed their being threated to be fired upon from the batteries on shore; but the people, particularly the women, solemnly declaring that if the troops put their threats in execution, they would burn the town, it had the desired effect, and the guillotine was not sent on board. An insurreftion in Quiberon Bay occasioned the French fleet to return to Brest. A Lieutenant in the navy, who was instrumental to it, was condemned to die, and a sailor, who cut the cable of the Bre- tagne while at anchor, was sentenced to the galleys for five years. Letters from Nantes, dated the 2zd and 27th of October, confirm the taking of the island of Noir- montier ( near the mouth of the Loire) by the Roy- alists of La Vendee. Thus they hope to receive succours from England. The same letters mention, that the column of Royalists which passed the Loire at Varade, brought off its artillery, ammunition, and baggage safe, with- out the smallest loss; and that they intended to go from Laval towards Lower Bretagne and St Malo, where a formidable party waits only for their appear- ance to declare themselves. Twelve thousand pa- triots, coming from La Vendee, have passed the bridges of Nantes on their way to Rennes, to give the Royalists battle. The city of Nantes is subservient to a Municipa- lity composed of Sans Culottes ; and to ten mem- bers of the Convention, who as National Commis sioners exercise there the most tremenduous tyranny. There was last night on the river a press for sea- men, the most severe of any which has taken place since the commencement of the war; almost every ship was stripped of its hands, including the mats. A mystery hangs over the late transactions in France, which time only can develope. Egalite was held in too much contempt by the Republican party, supposed to favour the system of federalism, to be admitted into their councils; they at one time even procured a decree for his banish- ment, as a dangerous person attached to the Moun- tain, and making same of its most violent members the agents of his ambition. Yet, we find, that by this party he has not only been discarded, but ar- rested on their advancement to power, and since committed to the guillotine. Among the leading men, Roberspierre has been frequently pointed out as one of the Orleans fac tion, and used to be admitted to his nocturnal parties at Monceux and Rincy. Through the whole course Of the revolution this man, no less weak than wicked, appears to have been guided by the alternate emotions of fear and ambition. In his conduCt towards Louis he waS actuated by personal resentment; but though a spi- rit of revenge might have been his sole motive in the commencement of the revolution, there is scarce- ly a doubt, that in the course of it he hoped to trans- fer the crown from the head of Louis to his own. Mirabeau was thought to have been privy to this design ; whether this be so or otherwise, it seems pretty clear that Mirabeau, if a natural death had not intervened, would have terminated his brilliant career upon a scaffold. All the estates of this criminal and unfortunate Prince will go to swell the income of the new Re- public. His rental, before the corruption he was obliged to practise during the revolution plunged him deeply in debt, must have amounted to near 15o. oool. per annum. On the composition made with his creditors, his allowance was 25,0001. an- nually. He has left behind him four children, three sons and a daughter. The eldest, ci- devant Due de Char- tres, escaped with Dumourier ; the other two sons, whose titles were, the Duc de Montpensier, and Count de Beaugolois, are prisoners; having been arrested with the other members of the Bourbon sa- mily. Madamoiselle D'Orleans is with Madame Genlis, the wife of Sillery, now in Switzerland. What connection there was between D'Orleans and Sillery does not appear, any more than their guilt; it is only remarkable, that on the trial of Sillery, , his being the confidant of Orleans, was mentioned as his chief crime; as on the trial of the latter the chief imputation was his being the friend of Sillery ! This action and re- action of imputed criminality is not the least curious circumstance that distinguishes the jurisprudencc of the new Tribunal. Sir CHARLES Grey, K. B with Majors MAIT- land, GREY, and LLOYD, were introduced at the last levee to the KINg on their arrival from Nieuport, and afterwards took leave of his MAJESTY on their going to the West India station, for which place they will set out in a few days. The King's levee on Wednesday was attended by an unusual proportion of military officers.— A Great Personage, it is said, on coming into the room, asked the Lord Chamberlain what General he had lost upon enquiry it was found that Lieutenant General TAYLER, Colonel of the 24th reginent, had that morning departed this life, to the great regret of his brother officers, every one of whom were ready to do the duty of their deceased friend merely from respect to his memory. Major- General WHITE is appointed Colonel of the 24th regiment of foot, vacant by the death of Licutenant- General TAyLeR.. The Earl of MOIRA ( who has jud got a com mand) has received a carte blanche, with respeCt to the appointment of his own staff, & c. His Lor' ship's destination remains a profound secret. Yesterday Lord MALMESbURY received the ap- pointment of Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary from the Court of Great Britain to the King of PRUSSIA. Admiral GARDNER, who lately arrived from Ja- maica, will shortly sail, with a very strong squadron, for the Eaft Indies. The advices received from Commodore CORNWALLIS on the 12th, it is said, will hasten his departure, and some considerable ope- rations may be expeCted when the two squadrons shall have joined. The troops, Which the EMPRESS of RITSSIA will contribute to the next campaign in France, will, perhaps be those lately employed in Poland, whence 40,000 men may easily be spared, now that her MA- JESTY has succeeded in all her measures in that country. The Council of War at Vienna has sent an or- der to all the provinces, to furnish immediately as many recruits as possible. The recruits, raised since last summer, are ordered to join the different armies In consequence of these orders, large reinforce ments pass through that city daily. Lord LENNOX, Colonels MERCER, DAVIES, and CAMPBELL, with several others, on Monday surveyed the batteries and citadel of Plymouth, in which it is understood several alterations will shortly take place, and each will be put in the best possible state of de- fence. Intelligence was received yesterday at Lloyd's by the Aquila, arrived off Dover, that our Madras army went, on the 10th and 11 th of June, against Pondicherry, which is said to have surrendered on the 1st of July. The French had marched to at- tack Fort St David's. Carrical had also been taken by the English, and a French Indiaman captured in the roads. Insurrections still prevailed at the Mauritius, where the white cockade was mounted by many of the Royalists, Letters from Genoa, of the 19th ult. state, that the Doge Doria had held a private council, at which all the Senators assisted; none of its results have hi- therto transpired. Immediately after, couriers were dispatched to the principal Courts of Europe : The Genoese soldiers and militia- men have all been put in readiness for aCtive service. Letters from Genoa, dated Oct. 23. mention that Generals CARTeAuX and GARDANI continue to bom- bard the forts and navy of Toulon, but without success. That the French frigate the Imperieuse; Of 40 guns, which, was sunk, had been raised: that a 22 pounder burst on board the Saint- George, kill- ing 16 men, wounding several others, and shattered in the Mediterranean, with a view of intercepting such ships of war and trading vessels as the French' might still have in that sea ; and that after his cruise he was to sail with a strong fleet for the West Indies. Two more troops of cavalry- artillery are to be raised immediately, the command of which is given to Captains HOWARTH and HALEY, both officers di- stinguished for their gallantry and services daring the American war, in which the former was severely wounded ; and the latter had the singular fate to be under the command of General BuRGOYNE, at Sa- ratoga, and also with Lord CORNWALLIS at York Town The want of a cavalry artillery has long been severely felt in our military operations, and on the plan it has now been established by the Duke of RICHMOND, it promises to be of the most extensive utility.— Every thing belonging to it has been mi- nutely inspected, and entirely regulated by his Grace ; in consequence of which, nothing that could contri- bute to its real advantage has been neglected, and every superfluity has been omitted. • Saturday morning, at one o'clock, the ship Me- dona Indiaman, Capt. HOLADICE, of London, from Ostend, in ballast, with a Lieutenant of the navy, his wife, three passengers, and 26 hands on board, struck on the Goodwin Sands, and instantly went, to pieces. One man was taken up by the Flora, of Broad- stairs, and carried in there; he lashed him- self to a hen- coop and part of the mizen mast, and by that means was saved : He says, that the Captain and pilot were both drunk. The seamen repeatedly told them that they would be on the Sands, but to no purpose. He further adds, that at two o'clock two more of the hands passed him on another piece of the wreck, and hailed each other, the sea then running very high. The Broad- stairs boats have been in search of them, but without success, so that we fear they are lost. We have since learnt, that on Saturday evening, twelve men and a boy, belonging to the above Vessel, were taken up at sea, floating on a piece of the wreck, by a Yarmouth lugger, and carried into Margate. ; ' It is not many years since our fair' sovereigns of the region of fashion, defying aching heads or heated brain, wore heavy beaver hats, and thick black silk calashes in the dog days. With equal consist- ency, and in defiance of the rude blasts of the com ing winter, they now stick a few poultry feathers in a little bit of silk, which scarcely covers the top of their heads, and call it a bonnet. Lord LONSDALE has so many suits in Chancery that with all the expedition the forms of the Court will admit, they cannot possibly be decided in the course of the next century 1 The French estimate the merit of Saints in pro portion to the weight of their statues 1 The new French kalendar reminds us of a publica- tion called the Belfast Almanack, in which the Sun days were reduced to twenty, Good Friday was on a Saturday, Christmas took place twice a year, and every week begun once a fortnight. The improvements made 0n the access to the House of Commons will also facilitate the entrance into Westminster Hall; but the great inconvenience in the latter place arises from the difficulty of finding the way out. A new tragedy, entitled, the SIege of BerWICK, written by Mr Jeningham, was last night, representcd for the first time at Covent Garden Theatre, and honourably received. EVENING COURANT.

The same day the Sheriff of this county publicly declared his Honour SAMUEL ADAMS, Esq Lieutenant Governor, to be his successor. A messenger arrived last night from Holyhead, which brings intelligence, that the Countess of WESTMORELAND died on Sunday morning last of a fever. The Lord Lieutenant is expected immedi- ately to depart from Ireland, and the seals will of course be put in commission. She his left four children. This lady was the daughter of the late Mr CHILD the banker, and of Lady DuciE, who died a few months since. In consequence of this event, a general mourning will take place in Ire- land. The greatest part of the property, left to her Ladyship by her late father, is now transferred to her children. BIRTH. On Saturday, in Hanover- square, the Lady of the Right Hon.

On Saturday last, Dr ROBERT HAMILTON, many years an eminent physician at Lynn. Died, at his house in Cumberland, on the 15th inst. deeply regreted by a numerous family, and by all who knew him, JOHN LATIMER, Esq. of Holmfoot, brother to the Rev. Mr Walker, Canongate. REBECCa BALLINGALL, spouse to Alexander Comb, shipmaster in Leith, died the 12th curt. Her friends and relations will please accept Of this as a proper notification of her death. The French are again at their old bugbear, an invasion. According to the proceedings of the Con- vention, as dated in our last, orders have been. gi ven to unload, all the merchant ships at the different ports to serve as transports, to bring over the inva- ders to England. An order of this sort, supposing it to be true, may serve to keep up the spirits of the - people, and to preserve, for a while, the tyranny of the Convention over them. But how these vessels are to be collected, without being intercepted, from the different ports of France; or even when collected, how. they are to be protected against our ships of war in their passage over, is a matter we are not told. It is a singular fact, that though MARIE ANTONI ETTE was Queen of France more than 17 years ( for the was crowned at Rheims, June 11 1775, from ' which period she had the Command of millions), yet she had little or no private property, either in mo- ney, houses, pictures, or indeed of any species what- ever' Was such a woman interested ? or did she merit the barbarity with which ( he was persecuted ? Capt. FERgUSON, who was wounded at Nieuport, we are happy to hear, is in a fair way of recovery. Advice is said to be received, that six French pri- vateers, mounting from 10 to 16 guns, and full of men, sailed from Dunkirk on Monday last, and are supposed to be gone for the North Seas. Besides the above, four privateers were dated in last Lloyd's' List to have sailed some time before fot the same quarter. Some: of our ships of war are said to have sailed in quest of them. The Officers, non- commissioned officers, and sol- diers belonging to the four troops of the King's own regiment of dragoons in the neighbourhood of Edinburgh, on Saturday paid in to MR CREECH twenty pounds for flannel waistcoats for the soldiers serving in Flanders. We understand that a subscription is opened in theTontine Coffee- room, Glasgow, for raising a fund for, the support of the widows and children of those men belonging to that city, who, by the chance of war may fall in Flanders in defence of their country. Thursday a hot and indiscriminate impress broke out on the river at Newcastle— No protections were regarded, and a great number of hands were pick- ed up. On Friday WILLIAM MUrE of Caldwell, Esq. was elected Lord ReCtor of the. University of Glasgow, for the year ensuing. Colonel MONTGOMERY-, of Coilsfield, has presented Mr WILLIAM RITCHIE, probationer, to the church and parish of Tarbolton, vacant by the death of the late Dr Patrick Woodrow. We learn from Alloa, that the harvest in that neighbourhood, though, not early, has been well got in ; and it is hoped, from the specimens already threshed and, missed, that the crop, though not bulky, will turn out very productive.— The autumn has been remarkably healthy, and more marriages have lately taken place than usual. The average number of marriages in the parish is about 43 per annum. ... On Friday the 15th instant, ten couple were mar- ried; eight of which were coalliers, belonging to the Alloa works, and were all married at a time. On this occasion most of the people belonging to the works were present, between three and four hundred, all clean, and near, and respeCtably dressed. An handsome pocket Bible was presented to each of the brides; and an uncommon show of happiness and gratitude seemed to fit on every countenance. Seldom have we seen such general satisfaCtion in a numerous crowd, brought together by the novelty of the occasion, and astonished at the different ap- pearance these people made from what they did thirty years ago. On Thursday, through the carelessness of a dray- man, . who had allowed his horse to go without a leader, a girl of fix years of age was thrown down in one of the streets of Paisley, and killed on the spot, the wheel having passed over her jaw- bone, and bruised her head in a shocking manner. The Magistrates and Sheriff have of late been at much pains to prevent accidents of this nature, and have committed the driver to prison, in the view of bring- ing him to trial. On the 2d inst. a remarkably handsome, middling aged, well dressed man, about six feet high, brown complexioned, fair haired, caped behind, calling himself Mr Long, and who spoke English with the accent of a foreigner, seemingly a German, took up his residence in the Tontine buildings at Glas- gow, where he continued till the 8th, when he thought proper to decamp without settling his bill. He wore a round hat, with a nut- brown coat, and had on, when he went away, a pair of light blue coloured kerseymere breeches, and white muslin vest for which he had found means to obtain credit from a tailor in Glasgow'. . We understand he has defrauded some Other people in that place. At Soulmas fair, held at York on Wednesday, there was an excellent shew of fat cattle, which sold at good fair prices. Lean oxen, and Scots sold well. The Britannia, JAMES BUTLER, master, from Lon- don,' is arrived at Leith all well-. Royal Family of France cannot be more strikingly exemplified than by the following letter, written seventeen years ago. COPY of a LETTER from the. EMPRESS Queen to the DAuPHIN of FRANCE, m his Marriage with the ARCHDUCHESS her daughter. " Your Consort, my dear Dauphin, has just taken her leave of me. As she was my delight, I hope she will be your happiness, I have trained her up in full confidence that she would one day share in your fortune. I have in- spired her with love to your person, and duty to your will; with tenderness to soften your cares, and with the desire of seeking every occasion of pleasing you. I have earnestly recommended to her most serious thoughts a fervent devotion to the King of Kings, under a firm per- suasion that those who neglect their duty towards him, in whose hands are the sceptres of Kings, can never promote the true interest of the people over whom they are allot- ted to govern. Be mindful, I say, my dear Dauphin, of your duty to God ; and I repeat the same to the Princess my daughter. Be mindful - of the good of the people whom, whenever it happens, you will govern too soon Reve- rence the King your grandfather; be good as he is good ; and render yourselves accessible to those who labour un- der missortunes. It is impossible, in carrying yourselves in this manner, but that you must share in the general happiness. My daughter will love you— I am sure the will, because I know the inward sentiments of her heart; but the more I make myself answerable for her love and her endearments, the greater reason I have to expect that you will preserve for her an inviolable affection. Fare- well my dear Dauphin; be happy : My eyes overflow with tears." ' HIGH COURT OF JUSTICIARY. This day Mess. Brown and M'Nab, starch manufacturers at Monkton, appeared at the bar. These gentlemen were formerly Indicted both on the common law and the statute imposing a duty on starch; but tbe Court, after hearing counsel, and considering Informations, found the statute did not apply to the case of the pannels. They have been since served with a new indictment, founded on the common law alone. Mr David Williamson was heard for tbe pannels on the relevancy. He was answered by bis Majesty'S Advocate ; and the Dean of Faculty replied to his Lordship. The Court ordered informations, and adjourned the trial till this day fortnight. The Charlotte, CANNON, from Rotterdam, is safe arrived at Dunbar. , On the 18th ult. the Brig Ecton of Hull, Capt. Reeves, from that port to Lisbon, was taken by the Galathea French frigate, in lat. 470 50 N. Ion. y6 10 W. They plundered the ship of all the principal stores, and took the Captain and all the crew, ex cept the mate, on board the frigate. On the 24th the Ecton was retaken, and carried into Jersey; by the Vulture privateer belonging to that island. Two other French frigates were cruizing in company with the Galathea. Extract of a letter from an officer, late of the Olive of Liverpool, dated Brest, Oct. 12. to a merchant in. that town. " I am sorry to inform you, that the Olive was taken by La Felicite, a French frigate of 40 guns2 0n the 24th Sept. in lat. 45. Ion, 28. The French Captain, behaved in a most villainous manner, sheer- ing up alongside, and pouring nine of his heavy guns right into us, before he hailed, which killed one man and wounded another. We found it impossible to get away from her, she sailed so much faster than, us; they boarded and stripped us of every article, but the clothes on our backs, and in that date land- ed at Brest, and marched to an hospital, five miles in ' the country. In two days we are to march to Dinan Castle, 8o leagues from this place. The Lydia Capt. Crow, was taken on the 26th ult. by the same frigate : Capt. Crow is sick in the hospital, having- his arm dislocated. Capt. Pennant, Mr Jones, and the rest of the officers and ships company are in perfect health." Extract of a letter from a Member of Congress, America^ to his friend in Edinburgh. " Our whole attention is now turned to European intelligence, and the affairs of Francs are very in- teresting— I have been a friend to liberty all my life, but not to licentionsness— Thomas Paine is a person perhaps better known to me than almost any other in Europe or America— he is; in my opi- nion, without principle as a man, and without taste or talents as a writer." The Society for the Relief of the Industrious Blind are to have their first quarterly meeting on Tuesday the 19th, in Merchants Hall, at two o'clock, when it is requested the Contributors will attend; to receive, a report of the state of their funds, and of the progress which the blind have made in their em- ployments. It is pleasing to think that a number of them, instead of being beggars, are now useful members of society, and in a short time may earn a comfortable subsistence. If the public shall encou- rage the institution, the Society will be able ts re-, ceive a, greater number into the Asylum. NEW SADDLERS WELLS, The New Saddlers Wells Company will probably quit Edinburgh in the course of next month; in which case, the public; if they wish to be amused at all with variety, must come to the Circus Theatre as early in this short season as possible. The Entertainments are certainly- brought forward in a style deserving some support, and. it is to be hoped the known character of the people of North Britain will operate in a way likely to encourage the future exertions of a well regulated stage amusement.

SALE OF LANDS IN ARGYLESHIRE. To be SOLD by public voluntary roup, within the Royal Exchange Coffeehouse, Edinburgh, in the month of March, next ( the particular time to be aftewards mentioned), THE LANDS of AUCHRANISH & OTHERS, I lying in the parish of Morven, and county of Argyle, the property of CHARLES M'LEAN, Esq. of Kinlochaline. These lands are fet to substantial tenants at 344!. 16s. Ster- ling of yearly rent.— Upon the expiry of the present leases, there is every reason to believe that the farms will give a very considerable rise of rent, and most of these leases ex- pire in the course of three years. The estate lies compactly on an arm of the tea, called Lochaline, in the Sound of Mull; it is about five computed miles in length by four in bre< idih,— There is appearance of lead mines in the cftate. Several valuable feains of coal have been dil'covered, from which the common labourers of the country have wrought many . tons; and there are inexhaustible quarries of lime done, as well as free. done— all these are upon the shore ; and the harbour of Lochaline is not only one of the safest and mod commodious upon the west coast of Scotland, but it is in the course of the voyage from the west of England, the west of Scotland, and Irom Ireland to the Baltic, and within three hours sail of the Crinan Canal. There is also a valuable wood upon the estate ; it consists principally of oak and ash, lying alongst the shores of Loch- aline, and the banks of the water of Ulladle. This wood has been lately inclosed ; 110 part of it is more than two miles from the sea, and there is a carriage road through it to the harbour. The thinnings of this wood will produce a consi- derable yearly profit. With these advantages, in point of situation, the produce of the estate may be disposed of with the greatest facility.— There is every encouragement for the erection of salt and of lime works; and the coal or mineral which the estate con- tains, may be exported at a trifling expence.— The leases I contain reserved powers to the proprietor to carry on any ol j these works which he may think proper to fet on foot. There is no part of the Highlands of Scotland that can boast of more picturesque beauties than those which are to* be found in the scenes on the shores of Lochaline. The country around affords game in great plenty ; and there is very fine fishing both in the loch and in the river of Ulladle ; indeed, the fishing upon the coast might be made an object of very great emolument. There is no mansion- house upon the estate, but there are many fine situations for building. This estate will be disposed of altogether, or in lots, as purchasers shall incline. The public burdens do not exceed 15I. Sterling. The articles of roup and title- deeds will be communicated to any perlun applying to Robert Bell, or to John Campbell, clerks to the signet. TO BE I.

Sir Gilbert Elliot, Bart, situated in the parish of Askirk and shiure of Roxburgh, consisting of 400 acres or thereby most of which dry and, fit for growing turnip. The favourable situation of the farm as to manure and markets, is particularly encouraging for the tenant carrying on improvements— excellent shell marl is sold at a low rate at two miles diftance. The weft part of the farm is bound- ed by the turnpike road from Selkirk to Hawick, and is nearly at equal distances from each of these places. Offers will be received by John Moscrop at Minto, for three weeks from the date hereof, who will alsfo inform ai to particulars. MINTO, Nov. 1. 1793.
