Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. hundsrucken, Feb. 9. HE accounts of die Republicans hav- T ing abandoned the neighbourhood of . Lautern, DeuX Ponts, St. Wendel, & c. are confirmed ; they retired chiefly towards the - Saar. They committed the greatest excesses at Sr. Wendel, and their plan seems to have been to pillage all the inferior envi- rons of the Moselle; but the good dispositions made by Capt. Schulz, who commands at Bir- kenfield, and the accounts that the forest of Hoch was furnished with a number of German peasants in arms, made the enemy give. up their plan, and retire with precipitation ; between Widerkirchcn aud Verschweiler, they left a num- ber of- waggons laden with baggage, which they returned afterwards to set fire to, but the peasants liad carried them away. German troops at pre- sent occupy St. Wendel; a corps' of Prussians, under Major- General Kohler, is on the march to cover the heights ot K. irchbourg, Kaftellauw, and Simmern. The city of Deux- Ponts, en- tirely exhausted by different contributions and pillages, suffered again in the most cruel manner, • when the French entered it on the 4th ; the inha- bitants were ordered to pay 50,000 livres, to de- liver up all their arms of every description, powder, salt- petre, & c. all their gold, silver, iron, steel, copper, lead, pewter, & c. all their linen and flax; all the cloth in the warehouses and shops; all the horses, with their harness, cat-: tie, hides, saddles, and bridles; all clothes of every fort, and all the provisions; the inhabitants only to keep what was absolutely necessary for their own consumption. nantes, Ieb. 1Vielaris has been shot at Noirmoutier; the guillotine continues to be oc- cupied, and the commission ad hoc dispatches, by 4 or $ co at a time, the wretched banditti which they bring us from all parts; they shoot or drown them, and bury them 40 and 50 in a grave, which' occasions such a stench that we are in fear of some contagious disorder breaking out; frefsh. graves arc digging, and the others covering with earth. This will purify the air, but the victims are llill Tery numerous, particularly towards the quarter of Chefne. Paris, Feb. 23.—- Thomas Paine has written to the society of the Cordeliers, from his prison, to request their interference ; but the only anfwer he received was his own discourse in favour of the King. — LONDON, March 4 Advice has been received thrft foon after the evacuation of Toulon, Lord Hood was ordered to land his troops in Corsica, and fecond the ef- forts of the brave inhabitants of that island to shake off the French yoke. Thefe orders have been executed. Lord Hood fent a party of his fleet with a good body of land forces againft Fort Mi rtella, which, after a fpirited attack both by fet and land for two days, and as refolute a de- fence, was forced at laft to fubmit to the Englifh. The following intelligence to the above eff. ft had been received at Leghorn on the 12th ult. by , perfons arrived there in thips from Capo Cori'o and Centuri: Several English men of war entered the gulph . of St, Florenzo; and after having directed their fire upon fome adjacent heights, they effected a landing of the troops whom they brought with tneni, at a place called Pirallo, at the diftance of four Italian miles from fort Mortella. This lat- ter fort being immediately after attacked by land and fe: t, furrendered, after a resistance of two days. Soon after, the British troops, joined by fome of the Corsicans, went to attack another fort called- Fornali, the issue of which expedition has not yet transpired. At the fame time a most violent cannonade was heard at Capo Corso. Other pessengers, arrived from Capo Corfo at Leghorn, bring intelligence, that several British frigates having appeared before Centuri, they dispatched a boat with an officer thither, to sum- mon the commandant to declare himself; the lat . ter immediately hoisted the tri- coloured flag, and fired upon the English. The latter'then directed so violent a cannonade against the place, that all the inhabitants fled The British commander sent six cutters into the harbour, which fct fire to all the Corsican ships, and part of the crew went on shore, and plun- dered all the store- houses and magazines of mer- chandize, at and contiguous to Centuri; after which they went on board the cutters, and re turned to the squadron, which immediately set sail The official confirmation of all these particulars was hourly expected at Leghorn when thefe ac- counts came away. It is faid, but with what degree of truth we cannot pretend to fay, that our Cabinet, not wish ing to push Genoa to extremities, had refolved to raife the blockade of that port; that orders were transmitted to Lord Hood to that effect and that the blockade was actually raised on the 8th of February, and that as a confe quiince of this measure a great number of mer chantmen had actually arrived at Leghorn from Genoa. Yefterday an officer arrived at Lord Grenville' office with letters from Francis Grose, Efq. his Majesty's Lieutenant Governor of Botany Bay and from Captain Gridley King, Lieutenant Go vernor of Norfolk Island, which mention that the colonies were in a fiourishing situation through the industry of the convicts, See. Letters from the West- Indies, of a posterior date to thofe which were received a few days ago, ftate, that Sir John Jervis and Sir Charles Grey were gone to attack Martinique. We are informed that Admiral Gardner's ex- pedition to the Mauritius is entirely laid afide . and that the stores embarked for that purpofe arc re- landed. The French are fortifying Maubeuge and the entrenched camp of Rousies more and more, and have opened the fluices to lay part of the ground between that fortress and the river Sambre under . • water. The Commandant of Douay, though it be dif- ficult to approach that place, fituate among marfhes, finding that the number of the Auftrians increased daily in thofe environs, has pierced '- dvke to encompafs that place alfo with water. The allies have put West- Flanders in an ex ccllent state of defence, and the British army Is now at Courtray and Menin, and the Hanoverians have marched to Fumes and Nieuport, which are both tinder water. Skirmishes happen almost daily between the ad- vanced posts; and a few days ago a detachment of French dragoons was defeated by the Austrians near Baifeux. — Colonel Maclk has vifited the whole cordon of the allied army, and given orders to . reinforce all those posts which were most ex- posed. By a gentleman who has lately at great personal hazard visited the French army of the North, we re a flu red, that it is in a state of great. distress, from the want of every necessary of life. The common allowance is one pound of bread per day fora man, aiid half a pound for a woman, which they are obliged to steep in water. Letters from Brussels of the z8rh ult. announce, that the inhabitants of Douay arc reduced to three quarters of a pound of bread per diem. The beer, wine, and brandy, are in requisition or thearny At Lisle the magazines for the garrison are well provided; but the inhabitants have neither can- dles nor oil, and are kept upon half allowance. If the French have received , by means of their Indiamen, 10, coo tons of saltpetre, their con-' fumpt'on for the ensuing campaign is already more than provided for. Ten thousand tons of faltpefre will make 14,000 tons of the strongest gun- powder, and the quantity which the Com- mittee of Public Safety stated would probably be expended, was 23,000,0001b. oriels than 12,000 tons. This report however seems to be greatly exaggerated. The tonnage of East- India ships in general lies between 8 and 1200 tons per fhip ; let us then fay, that on average they are each of the burden of 1000 tons. In this cale, the ten Eaft Indiamen arrived at I'Orient, could not pof- fibly have furnished a supply of 10,000 tons of falt- petre, unlefs each ship was exclusively freigh- ted with ( to- article : and as it is to be prefumed that this was not the cafe, but that each veffel had an assortment of goods, - the real fupply of faltpetre carried into France by the above fleet, cannot, upon any fair eftimate, he fuppofed to extend to more than a fifth of the c?. fgo, & therefore ought not'tobe rated at more than 2,000 tons; a quantity " greatly- fhort of the 12,000 tons faid to lie abfolutely . necessary for the service of the ensuing campaign The government of Florence have published an cdifl, ordering all Frenchmen, of what tie-, scription soever, who cannot prove their residence in that Grand Dutchy since January 15, 1793, to quit the Tuscan territories in the space of a month from the publication ot the edict. Saturday the Royal assent was given by Com- missioners to the Mutiny Act, the Act to preserve French property, the Aits to repeal the Glove Tax; Act, and the duties on Births, & c. and the Aft to indemnify such perfons as have omitted to qualify for offices and employments. •- Saturday morning, the soldiers ordered for fo- reign service, marched from the Parade in St. James's- park to Greenwich, where they em- barked for Ostend, under the command of- Sir James Murray. Sir James Murray is appointed to the Com- mand of the 18th Regiment of Infantry, vacant by the death of Sir John Sebright,- The addition ot cavalry about to be; made to the different regiments of Militia, is to be in pro* portion to the number of companies in each re- giment ; to the Yorkshire regiments ten troops of cavalry are to_ be attached ; to the Cornwall two, making an increase of one fifth. Monday Mr. Justice Addington attended the War office, and passed upwards of fifty' wounded soldiers from St. Margaret's parish to Chelsea hos- pital.— One of these brave fellows experienced an escape very little fhort of a miracle. He re- ceived a bullet in the pit of his stomach, which missed his heart, and other vital parts, and was cut out of his back. Some of the others were desperately wounded. Preparations are making for throwing several thousand additional acres of the Mendip Hills in Somersetshire into cultivation. It is understood, that several extensive tracks of thofc lands will be employed inthe culture of buck or French wheat. This is an article exceedingly profitable to the farmer, as it thrives well in fandy or any other kind of poor land ; rolled and ploughed in, when green, it makes a very good manure, that will last for three years; reaped and threshed, the produce is very great, and ihe grain is an excellent food for swine and alt kinds of poultry. One third of buck wheat, given with oats to horfes, serves to purify their blood, and smooth their coats. Perhaps there is no article of culture fo profitable on poor land. As a proof of the forwardness of the season, green peafe have already made their appearance in Cavent- Garden market, where they are re- tailed to the curious in vegetables at the moderate price of two guineas a quart I A decree of divorce was last week given out from the Commissary ( Or Ecclesiastical) Court in Scotland, at the instance of her Grace the Dutch- efs of Hamilton, against the Duke of Hamil- ton, for crim. con. by which the marriage is dif- folved, and either of the parties may marry again, with certain restrictions asto the after- marriage of the Duke, laid down in the laws of Scotland, following the Roman law in this re- fpeft, which is different to the laws of England. We underltand that thefe rcftriftions prohibit the pe'rfon who is divorced from marrying the pcrfon with whom he or fhe had, by the judgment of the Commiffaiies, been found to have cohabited. In the Court of King's Bench, at Guildhall, on Saturday, caineona caufe of importance to all journeymen mechanics, artificers, & c. Theaftion was brought to recover the fum of 3!. 1^ s. which the plaintiff had advanced to the defendant, a journeyman copper- plate printer, to complete a piece of work he was employed on, while in the plaintiff's fervice,— It wasproved by the w. itneffes, that the defendant did not finifh the work, but quitted the plaintiff's fervice and went to work with another mafter.— Lord Kenyou faid, it was of great importance to the public, that journey- men mechanics, & c. fhould be compelled to per- form their engagements with their mafters; and the prefent trial might operate as an example. The jury found a verdict for the pjaintiff. On Saturday as two soldier's wives and a Child were going in a boat to see their husbands embark, in passing through London Bridge the boat un- fortunately overset, by which accident the water- man, women, and child perished. The number of vessels lost on the coaff of Lin- colnshire, Yorkshire, and Durham, during the late high, winds, are computed at t> f the crews perished. On Saturday died, at Eardley House, Arling- ton- street, the Right. Hon. Maria, Lady of Lord Eardley. H USE of LOrDS, Monday, March 3. Lord Auckland defired that Lord Radnor's Protest might be read-— It was accordingly read. as follows: PROTEST—- againft the rejection of tlie Indemnity Bill, for the Landing of Troops in this Country, with- out Consent of Parliament: DissentiENT, lit. Becaufe as, °. vith the exception of only one Noble Lord { not one of his Majesty's Ministers it was ill the debate unanimously admitted, that the keeping in this country; troops, whether native or foreign, in time either of War or peace, without the consent of Parlia- ment, is unconstitutional ; and as it was also admitted unanimously and unequivocally, that the troops in queltion are here upon grounds'of fitness and expedi- ency ; and as the consideration of fitness Sc expediency, tHo' they may render, & in fadt, in the prefent inftance, do render the meafure not only justifiable, but highly meritorious, do in 110 degree Co change it's nature as to make it more or less constitutional, ailly. This bill, though of a sort to be very sparingly adopted, yet was of a particular propriety ; for, in a matte- of great moment, it declared the law, saved the Constitiuion, aud did justice to tile motives of tile Executive Government. 3' lly. Becaufe the stopping of this Bill leaves the troops here, without any consent of Parliament. 4thly. because the effect of the declarations, by which the right of the Crown fo to keep troops her'e was disclaimed, however Itroug, general, and unequi- vocal, is yet tranfi- ory and fugiti ' e ; but the fait tnat . troops, are so here, is notorious and recorded ; anc] when the motives which justified, and the declarations that reconciled, to the House the- meafure.,. a- e for- gotten, may be doiie into precedent. . RADNOR. February 27, 1 Lord Auckland then moved, that the words- in italics . be. expunged. * . , . , Lord stanhope said it was known, that that noble Lord who how made the motion was. the.£ erfon alluded to in the . Protest; and he was glad . to find ihere was " lie; or, j Member founid in the house of Peers. audacious enough to give the doctrine alluded. to. the least support. ' I. ord- Auckland'replied, that he was sorry to be oblige ! to saying emi the subject than he at first in- tended : 1: 1 the debate in question, he had said, " that he was hot prepared to'fay it was illegal for tile K iug to land foreign troops in this country, in time of war, on some particular occasions.'' But he found 110' dif- ficulty in declaring, that ' the King could not maintain an army of either Foreign or Native troops in- this country,' either in peace or war; without the Consent of Parliament; these sentiments Were not contrary, to those uttered hy him in ' me debate alluded to. The motion was carried, and the House adjourned. WANTED, On or before Lady - Day next; TwO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED i.

INTELLIGENCE lias been received here, that a cutter belonging to the Danish navy, mounting iS puns, having met in the Bay of Biscay with the French ship the lmperieuse, of 80 guns, the Captain and crew of the - latter Boarded the Danish ship, and notwith- standing that the Danish officer produced the King of Denmark's commission, his ship was searched in every part; nil the Captain's chests and even his private papers were examined, and lie and his crew, after haying been subjected to every species of insult, were" confined, and the vessel taken possession of in the name of the Con- vention. Port I'Orient, Feb. 10. The ships which left the Isle de France under the escort of two frigates, are arrived in this harbour. Their cargo is esti- mated at upwards of 30,000,000 livres. One of those ships, coming from Bengal, is loaded with fait pet re, ready prepared. The rest of the ships brought cotton, muslin, coffee, pepper, and in- digo. They brought 86, too, certain intelligence respecting our situation in tin; east- Indies. I, O N D O N, March 6. Advice " is juft received, that the French Go- vernor of Martinique has sent a flag of truce to Sir Charles Grey, with . an offer of surrendering that island on certain conditions. Letters have been received within these two days from Leghorn, of date the 14th UIt. TWO days later than the intelligence which has been ' already communicated of Lord Hood's descent upon Corsica. By thefe letters we learn, that Captain Nelson, in the Agamemnon of 64 guns, had intercepted a convoy of 14 vessels, botind from Genoa to Corsica, laden with provisions and military stores We likewise learn, that the Fortitude had been placed against the battery of St. Florenza, which she cannonaded for several hours. She was on fire three different times, from having been Struck by red- hot shot; but the fire was each time very- easily extinguished. She had six men killed, and about wounded. The effect of her fire upon the battery was not ascertained when the account came away. From tlhe interception of the fleet of victuallers defined for the supply of the French forces on the Island of Corsica, and the powerful force which Lord Hood is enabled to direct against those places still in their possession, there is reason < 0 hope that we may soon hear of the total re- duction of that island, and of it's being under the protection of the British Crown. It is the wish of the Italian States that Corsica should be separated fcom the French dominion, and annexed to the British Crown, as it would then be a station for a British squadron, which could effectually protect Italy, and keep in check ihe operations of the naval armaments at Toulon. Whatever may be determined with respect to Cor- sica by the next treaty of peace, we believe we may venture to say that it Is at this moment in the interest, and a considerable part of it's coast in the effectual possesion of England. Could we retain the island with the confcm and good- will of the inhabitant?, it would be a most valuable acquisition, affording, as it does, great quantities of excellent timber for ship- building. Our ministers have resolved w maintain a con- siderable Ibody of land forces in tl/ Mediter- ranean, to co- operate with the navy and with the armies of the allies, in such expeditionsas it may lie thought advisable to undertake for the com- mon good.— It is for this reafon that all the Bri- tish troops which were employed at Toulon, are to continue attached to Lord Hood's fleet, and to act in conjunction with him, either in defence of our allies » n Italy, or in invading the possessions France, wherever the same may be assailable. In consequnce of this resolution of the cabinet, th; detachments from the nth, 30th, and 69th regiments, which have for fome time past served as marines 011 board the ships of lord Howe's fleet, are to be embarked in transports, and sent to join the main bodies of their respective corps :; t present with Lord Hood. These detachments consist of 6co effective men, and are under orders to fail on the lytli Lift, to join the regiments to which they belong. There are French papers in town of the 27th tilt. By thefe it appears that the Royalists have, since die former accounts in the Convention, gained some considerable advantages ov « r the Republican forces. There is reason to believe, that discon-, tent and despair are the general sensations of the people of Paris. letters received yesterday from France by the way of Flanders, corroborate the above; and give farther information respecting some recent advantages gained by the Royalists in La Vendee not vet generally known. The Royalists in la Vendee, who have been fo often extirpated by the National Conventionists, and have as often risen from the dead, are at this mo- ment in as great force as they have been at any- period of the last year; and it now appears that the Chiefs of that party have been actively, though with secrecy, employing all the winter months to collect a very formidable force against the opening of the campaign ; and such as will induce our Government to fend them succours. The Royalists are now attempting to gain some port, where our troops may land with safety ; and Lord Moria is arrived at Jersey. in order to be on the spot to receive the speediest intelligence from them. Government has, there is reafon to believe, the most certain information of the flrengtb of their force, which promises the moll important advantage,. The whole country of the limosin is in arms against the Convention; and private letters state, that M. de Percy, who commanded the Royalists'at Lyons, and retired to Rovergue after the evacuation of that city, is now in the has Limosin country, at the head of 6000 men, and is making the belt of his way tcv join the insurgents of La Vendee. Letters from Paris, which have escaped the vi- gilance of the committees, state, that the diffi- culty of procuring provisions in that metropolis has given rise to much uneasiness. The people demand a KING and BrEAD ; and the Deputies dare 110 longer shew themselves in public, unlefs is. repairing to the Convention, where they daily hear very unpleasant complaints. The two com- missioners wno havri been represented as sick at Angers, were taken & killed by the Royalists in the action of St. Folgent. Thefe letters further { late, what we have already mentioned, that Gen. Moulin did not, as his party have repre- sented, kill himself as a stanch Republican, but was dispatched with a pistol. by la Roche Jaquelin; and that the infection which broke out at Nantes, • Jn the putrid exhalations of the dead bodies of <) 0oo of the Royalists, who had been either guil lotined or shot there, has occasfioned in that city iS an epedemic disorder which carries off a great number of . the inhabitants. Skirmishes between the allies and French out- posts in ' Flanders, begin already- to be frequent. One, which took place on the i8th ult. caused a ' very great alarm. About a quarter past eight „. .' clock" flat morning the alarm guns were fired from Menin. and repeated along the whole line Of posts. Of course the regiments of and infantry immediately assembled, and eveory disposition was made to repel the enemy. Our brave countrymen at Courtray were under arms in a few minutes, and proceeded to Menin, when they received orders to return.— The alarm was occafioned by a party of the French, amounting to about 500 men, 200 of whom were cavalry, who having advanced with two field pieces from Commines to Werwick, drove in our picquet, consisting of 50 men, killed a Major of Hessian infantry, ( we have not yet learnt his name,) cros- sed the Lys, plundered the town, and burnt the church, which had been employed bv the British as a look out. Having effected their design, ( some of our people appearing in force, at the fame time to oppose them) they immediately re- treated, and the post was re- occupied by pur forces. A terrible plot to deliver the important fortress of luxembourgh to the French, is faid to have lately been discovered, just in time to prevent it's execution. Part of the fortifications were to lie blown up, in order to facilitate the entry of the French. General Schroeder, the governor, was the principal in the conspiracy. On it's detection he blew out his own brains, according to some ; according to others, he has escaped into France, with several officers & cannoneers. AH strangers are sent out of the town of Luxembourg, and se- veral arrestations have been made. It has been asserted, with circumstances of pro- bability that entitle it to our notice, that a part of the peojefted campaign will be the defence of Weil Flanders by means of inundation, by which the offensive force of the allies will be augmented at once with the whole army attach'd to it's pro- teftion. We consider this dreadful resource, fo painful ro resort to, as more prafticable in the actual circumstances, than in former wars, the ills of which were softened in some meafure by many of the principles of humanity , and some of the refinements of honour. The desolating sands of the ocean, which choak the principle of vegeta- tion, and overwhelm the hope of successive years, will be welcomed by the moral peasantry of Flan- ders, if it protect the hoary head of age from wrong and insult; if it shield the husband from cruelty and murder; or the wife and child from violation. A memorial has been presented by the Imperial Minister at Genoa, the chief purport of which is: " That the Emperor, at the present change of the circumstances of the war, was convinced that the Republic of Genoa, faithful to her de- claration of neutrality, would require her inha- bitants to take up arms, in order to resist any at- tack which might be made upon her territory; and that the Emperor would still farther confirm her neutrality of 1792, by sending troops to Ge- noa, if there fhould he any necessity for them." When thefe accounts came away, the Senate, who met the day '- efore, had not come to any reso- lution respecting this Memorial. It was ex- pected, that on their Meeting, which took place 011 Monday following, a decisive answer would be returned. The States of Holland and West Friesland, have published a placard, in exact conformity to the Bill introduced into our Parliament, relative to bills of exchange, and drawn by or in favour of persons resident in France, since Jan. 1, 1794. Notwithstanding the great diminution of his territory, Tippoo Saib is said to possess a more formidable military force than ever. An inun- dation of French emigrants has greatly in created his European troops, which from the fame fource is likely to derive still greater augmentation. This circumstance wilt probably render it advisable for the East- India Company to maintain their present great and expensive establishments. When the president of the Bloody Tribunal askeed the late Queen _ of France whether fhe had any thing more to say in her defence, fhe anfwered, Nothing— I was a Queen, and you dethroned me~ I was a Wife, and you murdered my Hus- band— I was a Mother, and you tore me from my Children. Nothing now is left me but my blood — Frenchmen, drink it— Glut yourselves with it! All I ask is, that you will not keep me long in pain, but put a speedy end to my sufFerings."— Vet though there were so many witnesses of this fact, there was not in all Paris one single Paper that dared to state it. Such is the Liberty of the Press in France! We understand that the Duke of Buccleugh, the Earl of Winchilsea, Lord Hawke, and Lord Sheffield, have l> een chosen Vice- Presidents of the Board of Agriculture, and that the Dukes of Beaufort and Northumberland, the Marquisses of Buckingham- ami Blandford, have been ad- mitted honorary members. the Prince of Wales visited the Margrave of Anspach's Masquerade, at Brandenburgh- house, in the dress of a sailor _ An Action at the same entertainment brandishing a large pair of antlers ran full butt against a French looking glass of three hundred guineas value, and smashed it to pieces.— The Margrave being neat, endeavoured to give the accident a pleasant turn, by remarking in German, that there could be no jollity where they let the glass stand." A numerous meeting of the tradesmen of New- castle, interfiled in the propofed tax 011 paper, was held on Wednesday last, when it was unani- mously resolved to send requisitions to the Mem- bers for the counties of Northumberland, Dur- ham, and Newcaltle, to oppose the bill in it's prefent form. A statement of the existing and propofed duties was fent tp each member, in which it was ( hewn, that fume of the finest kinds of paper would, if the proposed duties were enacted, pay a less tax than at prefent, while the common forts would be inereaftd to four times the fum now paid for them! By the new regulation of the [ Two] Penny Post, there are to be six deliveries daily in all parts of London, three deliveries within the pre- sent limits, and two posts daily from all parts within Yen miles of London. " Jlie Governors and Guardians of the Found ling Hospital have benevolently resolved, to admit to the full benefit of the Hospital, as far as their funds will allow, the infant children of the Sol diers and Seamen employed in the service of their country, during the present war; and in order that this protection may be extended as univer- sally as possible to these poor infants, the Society at the Crown and Anchor have opened a book for separate subscriptions, for the express purpose of " maintaining and educating the orphans, fatherless, and exposed and necessitous children of our brave seamen & soldiers. by sending them to that excellent charity the Foundling Hospital" Tuesday advice was received in town that the transport on board of which are Messrs. Muir, Palmer. Skirving, and Margarott, was arrived at Portsmouth, on her way to Botany- Bay. Another new gaol for the County of Suffolk is immediately to TO erected at Bury', on a plan similar to that of Ipfwich. Two men have been taken at Beaumaris, one. of whom has turned King's evidence; they are committed for robbing the Chester mail. A singular and melancholy instance of fatality.— A gentleman lately resident in Weftminlter had six children, the eldest of which was a young lady of twenty- two, the youngest a girl of seven. The eldest was suddenty seized with a large tumour in her throat, which gangrened and she died in three days ; the rwo sisters who were next to her in age took the infection, and died within the week The brothers, one of whom was almost the se- nior of Westminster school, and a youth of about eighteen, next sickened, and died within a flew days: Thus of six children, all in the bloom and vigour of youth and health, five died in somewhat less than a fortnight. One only escaped, by- being at a distance. But what is very singular, none of the servants, nurses, or any of the me- dical attendants, were at all affected by the ma- lady, which seems to have exerted it's peculiar and dreadful influence on the family alone.

HOUSE of COMMONS, Wednesday, March <;. The Houfc having refolved into a Committee of VVaj s and Means, Mr. Pitt ftated to the Committee the particulars of His plan for meeting a part of the Navy Debt; tic pvo- poletl that, the amount of all bills payable on or before March 1, 1793, Ihonld be funded iii the 5 per cent. Stock, 011 a plan nearly tiinitar to what had obtained in the year 1784 and 1785, and which he was happy to fee a]> j) eared to give general I'atisladion to the parties intcretted; the price of the 5 per cents, at the time of forming the calculations, was a little abov » ipav, and the arrangement was fuch as would give about 101I. for cach 100I. in navy Bills.— He Hated that none of thofe bills were made payable at a longer date than 15 months; that the mtterence in favour of prompt pay- ment would be between an half and 3- quariers per CC1U. aud obtcrved that fuch holders its did not take the prefent advantage of fubferibing, would have no politivc certainty as to tire particular time of their be- ing paid. v. He also stated, that it was propofed, that all Navy Bills to be itfued in future, Ihoitld bear inlerclt 4 percent.) from the moment they were iii'ued ; and that they thould tot be current far a longer period than months. He then moved a refblution to the aboveefifcift, which was unanimoiilly agreed to by the Committee.

J. GArDiN'R, Treasurer Friday and Saturday s Posts.- LONDON, March 8. eArL Howe will hoist his flag on board the Queen Charlotte, at Portsmouth, in — i the course of the enfuiug week-. Commodore elphinstone, who was appointed Commandant at Toulon, on it's being first pos- sessed by the English. is on his way to England, with two very fine Clips of. the line, taken in that port ;- ra'n:' of them is the Commerce de Marseilles, of 120 suns. The grand camp is to be at Ashmore, in Kent, instead of Coxheath, as was at first intended. Jt is computed that not less than 40,000 work- ing miners are daily employed ( under ground) in the mines of Cornwall ; aui it is supposed there are a still greater number in other works of lead, coal, and copper, 111 different parts of Great Britain. Militia.— Respecting the augmentation of the militia, the proposal we understand to be the same as was adopted in the last war, by increasing the militia volunteer companies. In addition to this, in towns upon the sea- coast in particular, encouragement is alfo to be given for railing corps for their own defence. Cavalry are also to be raised— Government to pay for the horses, arms, cloathing, & c. and tem- porary rank to be given to those who raise them, according to the number of men they procure. Jt is likewise proposed to form troops of horse in some places, to consist of the Gentleman and Yeomanry of counties, the officers of which are to have temporary commissions.— Thefe bodies of cavalry to be attached to the particular county in which thev are raised, unless called out by in- vasion, or the appearance of invafion, or for the suppression of riots in neighbouring counties. While on service, they are to receive pay. Companies of infantry, for the batteries on the coast, are likwise proposed. Each company is to consist of a Captain, two Lieutenants, and 60 6r 70 men, fome of whom are to aft as pioneers when necessary. The officers are to have com- missions; they are to assemble every week to ex- ercise, and to be paid on the day of exercise; qud to have arms and accoutrements furnished at the - expence of Government; and not to be re- moved from the places, for the particular safety of which they are intended, unless upon any- great emergency. Plans, of which the above, we understand, are the heads, have been sent to the Lords Lieu- tenants and principal Gentlemen of several coun- ties, for their approbation. The Taylor versus the Mouse.— An unlucky mouse having, a few days ago, made free with a cheese of a taylor in Stockport ( for mice in these cases do not discriminate)— a trap was set — the culprit caught— and vengeance threatened. This taylor y one of a society of liberty- men called jacobins, and with a spirit auiting the fraternity, he reaolved to guillotine the mouae. Still more to enrich the tteai lie dignified it with the appellation of a cer- tain Royal Duke— made it a red jacket— and him- felf was to be the executioner. A meeting night was appointed tor the deed— the hour of fix the time— and the raylor was ready with his fhrouded viftim, trembling beneath his fingers, and a large lenife in his right hand for the bloody purpofe. Eagerly watching the clock for the fignal, at the appointed moment he gave the fatal ftroke— but fo incautiouflv, that the animal darting it's little heat! aside, left the hand of the taylor exposed, ami he fairly chopped off his fore- finger and thumb! His victim, profiting by the circumstance, made a fudden dart, and efcaped from it's manly enemy.-— This we are assured is a fact—' Tis hard to fay, whether the folly, or the intention of the action is most remarkable.— Chester Courant. Dublin, Fet. 25. A very uncommon circuin- fta. xe happened yefterdav " to the child of one rorke, of Thomas- Street.— A boy about seven years of age, who had charge of au infant, went to iiih in the refer voir that fupplies the town with water. just as the pipes were opened, in conse- quence of a fire that broke out in Bridge flreet, he happened to let his sister fall, who was preci- pitated through the pipes, and was actually car- ried into the arms of one of the firemen where the water had venr. The infant was apparently dead; but no marks having appeared of it's receiv- in; any injury, except suffocation, & a surgeon in the street having treated it accordingly, the child was restored to life by the means recommended to recover drowned perions by the Humane Society. From the resorvoir to Bridge- street is more than an Eng'ilh mile. _____ HOUSE of COMMONS, Thursday, March 6. Mr. Mainwaring, after stating several improprieties which liad obtained respecting a due observation of the Sabbath, owing to the relaxation or inadequacy of the laws rtL- mng thereto, particularly in the in fiance of journeymen Bakers, which part of his propofed mea- lure would go to rejtrain from baking on a Sunday except from the hours of ten till one inclulivc, moved tor leave to hrinj? in a Rill to explain and amend an Act passed in the twenty- ninth year of the reign of King Charles. The motion, after a few- words from Mr. Joliffe, and xome observations from Sir James Sanderson, ' the late lord Mavor,) in fupyort of what fell from Mr. Mainwaring, was agreed to, and Mr. Mainwaring and Sir james Sanderson ordered to prepare and bring in tile Bill accordingly, . . Mr. Pitt, pursuant to his notice, rofe to move for a Bill to augment this part of the national force. He observed, that in the prefent fit nation of the nation, it was evident that every potiible exertion was ne- cetl'ary, as wetl to a vigorous, external profecution of the war, as to the more important concern ol home preservati'ton ; it was therefore deemed ad v liable- to take the sperdiedt steps to augment the Militia forces : I nch a meafure obtained in the coutl'e of the late war, in the year 1779, but 011 the present occasion it was mean, to an ply tor rather a greater latitude, in as much a.; at the former period, the augmentation confuted ot adding a number of privates to each company; whereas, at prulent, it was propol'ed to give the option to his Maielty, citlu- itto augment the regiments as above, or to do it bv adding the- entire companies to each corps. He. likewise stated, that it was in contemplation to rail'e Volunteer Companies for the purpofe ot local de- fence, particularly in the maritime parts; and which, a., thev probably would confift of the gentry and yeo- manry ot'tlie different counties, were not to be marched from their respective counties, except in cafes of ab- solute necessity; a considerable portion of thel'ej it was intended, should he cavalry; such a measure was deemed necessary, in order to render it almoft impoflible tlmt any desperate attempt of the enemy, to harrafs or • lilt! el's thrs country, either in a temporary or partial point of view, by throwing in a body of troops on the coast, should be at tended with the desired effect. The measure which was intended immediately to be put into execution, related solely to the Militia; he would move for the 13ill simply to that elicit, in the fame manner as had been done in the late war. He then moved for leave to bring in a bill to augment the militia. Mr. M. a. Taylor observed, that as he saw no ne- cessity for such an increase of our internal land force, and as such a proceeding must not only incrcafe the national expences, but take away a number of hands from the cultivation of the land, he would give the meafure, when it came regularly before the Iloul'c, his decided negative. Mr. J. S. Cocks spokc in supportof themeasure, as did , . Mr. Vansittartx who stated, that the subscriptions in the country towards railing the Volunteer Com panies were very conlUlerable ; that of the Grand Jury at Reading amounted to near 1500!. Mr. fox lamented that it should be found expedient * to Call for such an extensive and unprecedented aug- mentation of the internal force, and 111 a much greater degree than when, during the late war, the great . powers of Europe were combined againxt us, and their hension and danger of invasion was now considered to be proportionable greater than at that period tlie na- tion, notwithstanding all it'S alliances and advantages in the prefent, mutt he reduced to a very alarming crilis indeed ; fuch proceedings, he observed, did not forbode well as to tut success of the war.— However, as other opportunities would otter for giving his senti- ments at large upon the measure, lie would refer hiiu- felf till then. Mr. Ryder Observed, that the measure was princi- pally intended effectually to counteract any desperate exertion . which the enemy might attempt for a tem- porary distress of this kingdom ; at the same time it would be attended with another good effect, namely, to give 11s an opportunity Of making greater external exertions. Mr Grey said a few words in support of what fell from gentlemen oil his liik- of the Houl'e; after which the question was put and carried, and the bill ordered to be brought in accordingly. Mr. whitbread rose to make his promised motion on this fiibjeit, which he prefaced with a speech of con- fuierabli; length. He obferved, that a great niajority of the numerous and complicated treaties before that Houfe were of fuch a nature, as to be incompatible with the real honour of the Crown, and injurious to the iuterests; of the country. In animadverting on thefe topics, lie found it necessary to take a compre- lieniive view, not only of the diiterent treaties made during, and for a certain time previous to the war, but to the origin and principles of the war itfelf. The facts alluded to, and the arguments adduced on the occasion, being such as have been often repeated by the Hon.. Gentleman himself, and by others oil former occasions, we deem it unnecessary to detail them. He observrd, that according to tile declaration of Ministers, their objects were indemnity and security, those. were very indefinite terms, as almost any con- struction might be put upon them; a-, he considered that in every point of view the war mult be, even if succcssful, prejudicial to this country ; in which case, the destruction of our liberties Would ensue, and we should be involved in endless Continental wars on ac- count of the partition of France, as little else seemed the real views of Austria and Prussia He considered that the best steps which could be taken for the prefer- vation of every thing dear to us, would be to withdraw from our alliances, for which favourable opportunities prefented themselves;— he alluded principally to the report, which was confidently a Iter ted, that his Prussian Maiesty had declared nis inability to go 011 with the War without pecuniary aid, and had de- manded a subsidy of 703, ocol. from this country; and the other instance. to the Empress of Russia's neglect- ing to fulfil her engagements; of those lie raeommended, that every advantage thould be taken, and to treat im- mediately for a feparate peace. He concluded by moving an Address to his Majesty,- praying that he- would'be pleased to take the above circumstances into his consideration, and recommending a specdy negocia- tion for peace.— On the question being put, mr jenkinson rofe, and in a speech of fome length, opposed the Motion, as recommending a measure equally disgraceful and impolitic: the tenor of the Hon. Gentleman's arguments were such as have been before fo successfully opposed to propositions of t he above nature. Sir G. P. Turner was against the Motion, but la- mented that the burdens of the poor were necessarily encreased by the burdens of the war. He recom- mended a tax upon all the rich, in proportion to their respective properties. mr. Fox, in a speech of considerable length, sup- ported the Motion. He recapitulated, commented on, and enforced the different arguments of his Hon. Friend. Mr. Pitt, in a speech of great length, displayed his accustomed eloquence and ability against the motion; lie observed, that the far greater part of the Hon. Gentleman's specch was totally irrelative to the professed subject of it, namely, the consideration of certain treaties. As to w hat had been laid againlt the war, he had the less difficulty in refuting it, as it had been so ably clone before; and the House having decided accordingly. After which the House divided, when thercappeared in favour of the Motion i&, againlt it 138, majority 112. • For SALE by AUCTION, By BENJAMIN MASON, On Thurfday tile 13th of March infl. on the Premifes, ALL the HOUSEHOLD- FURNITURE, J\ Sec. of THOMAS CORNISH, Woolcomber and Weaver, it GREAT- CREATON, in the Comity of Northampton : Coi. fifting of Bedflcads with Har- ratcen and outer Furniture ; Flock Beds and Bedding; Oak Bureau, Chelt of Drawers, Tables and Chairs; a Thirty- liour Clock ; Kitchen- Furniture;— Iron Fur- nace, Wool Rings, Warping- Mill, Loom, Wool- Combs andfuiviry other Articles.-- Alfo aufeful Road Horl'e.

HOUSE of COMMONS, Friday, March 7. UPON the motion for committing the Bill for regulating the Toll to be taken by Millers, Mr. Smith rofe to exprefs his difapprobation of the meafure. It went, to alter a long ufed and eltablifhed law, without ftifiicient reafon being ftated of the neceffity of fuch a procedure. He was of opinion that the law as it now ftood was quite fufiicient to correft any abufes in the mal- praftices of millers. . iir Francis- Baffet was much fur prized that any objeftion fhould be brought againft the prefrnt B'll. He entered into a detail of the abufes praftifed by millers ; and maintained that a poor perfon, as the law now itood, could gain no red refs; inafmuch as the cofts of an indiftment would be at leaft 14I. in order to recover ftxpence. T he Attorney General obferved that mills were a fpecics of property as much as any efiate held in fee Cmple, and the prefent Bill went to fubjeft the whole of this property to the difcretion of two juftices; this was a point fo very important, that he felt it his duty to oppofe it's even going into a Committee. The Mafter of the Rolls alfo oppofed the Bill. After fome other converfation upon the ftibjeft, the Hotife divided,— for committing the bill, 30, - againft it 59,— Majority 29.

A1 By the Flanders Mail of yefterdaj;, letters were received from Ottend of * he date of Wednefday, which announce the fafe arrival of the Guards at that place, as alfo of his Royal Highnels the Duke of York, in good health. At that time nothing more than fkirmifhes had taken place on the Frontiers, though every day frefh intelligence was brought of the preparations making by the enemy; thefe, however, were ac- companied by affurances, that the French army was in a dreadful ftate of diforganization. What tended more than any thing to confirm this infor- mation, was it's being brought acrofs the Frontiers by deferrers,. who found means to pafs daily in conliderable numbers, both officers and privates. The Mail brings little important intelligence from the neighbourhood of the Rhine.— Skir- mifhes continue, and each party retain nearly the fame pofitions they have occupied for thefe three months. The enfuing campaign, it is is faid, will be opened by another Proclamation addrefied to the French Nation, publifhed in the name of all the Combined Powers. All the vigilance of the French Committees cannot now check intelligence from the interior of France, which fpe'aks of an increaiing fpirit of hoftllity' rifing upagainft the Conve- ntion.-- It's agents in eve^ v quarter exercife their authority by fuch fanguinarv means, that the public voice is no longer fmothered.— At Lyons, it is faid, not lefs than FI VE THOUSAND haveperiihed un- der the Revolutionary Axe, which when the laft accounts came away was again in motion !

It is faid that the innkeepers and victuallers in different parts of the kingdom, are abont con- vening meetings, for the purpofe confuldng on the propriety of petitioning Parliament this feffion, for the better payment of foldiers'quar- ters, by an addition of per day more to each man, and per day more for each horfe, to lie paid out of their re( pef* ive countv- rates ; which mode, if adopted, will be the means of towns and villages lying in theremoteft part of • the counties, paying a part, though not a pro- portionate one, to thofe who now bear the bur- ' den by refiding on the public roads.
