The Revolutionary spirit which has manifested it- self in the inhabitants of the Venetian territory, threat- ens the neighbouring countries, and compels the EM- PEROR to secure himself from the unhappy conse- quences which may be the result. i. The ancient rights of his IMPERIAL MAJESTY and his ancestors to Venetian Istria, which formerly made a part of Hungary. And as several of the Vene- tian Provinces have detached themselves from the So- vereignty of Venice, his MAJESTY conceived this to be the time to assert his ancient rights. This declaration has been accompanied by a general pardon, as well for the Austrian subjects who had fled into Istria to avoid taking up arms, as for the Venetian subjects who had left their country.

" His Majesty the EMPEROR having at heart that Peace should be restored between the Germanic Em- pire and France, and the Executive Directory of the French Republic willing likewise to manifest to his IMPERIAL MAJESTV their desire of founding the said Peace upon a solid and equitable basis, agree to a Cessa tion of Hostilities between the Germanic Empire and France, from this day. ' A Congress shall be held, formed of the respective Plenipotentiaries, to treat upon and conclude a Definitive Peace between the two Powers,, on the basis of the Integrity of the Em pire. " The deliberations as to a convenient place for the Congress for treating of a General Peace of the Empire, are net yet concluded.

ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, July u, 1797. Extract of a letter from Admiral the EARL of St. Vin- CENT, Commander in Chief of his Majesty's Ships and Vessels employed on the Coast of Portugal, to Evan Nepean, Esq dated on board the Ville de Paris, off Cadiz, June 16, 1797. S I R, IDESIRE you will acquaint the Lords commissioners of the Admiralty that Lieut. Hardy, in the French Republican corvette La Mutine, cut out of the bay of Santa Cruz, by the boats of his Majesty's ships Lively and La Minerve has this moment joined. The gallantry of this action, recited in the public and private letters of the Captains Hallowell and Cock- burn, has prompted me to take the Mutine into his Majesty's service, and to appoint Lieut. Hardy to the command of her ; a measure so necessary to encourage a continuance of daring enterprize, I am confident will merit the approbation of their Lordships. Lively, off S. W. End of Teneriffe, SIR, May 31,1797 I HAVE the honour to inform you, that on standing into the Bay of Santa Cruz, in the Island of Teneriffe, on the afternoon of the 28th, in company with La Minerve, I discovered an armed brig lying in the road, which, on our nearer approach, hoisted French colours. Capt. Cockburn agreeing with myself in opinion that she might be taken from her anchors, I ordered all the boats of the two ships, with a Lieutenant in each, the next night, to bring her out; Lieutenant Hardy, of La Minerve, being the senior officer, the command fell on him. At about half past two in the afternoon he made a most resolute attack, in which he was gallantly sup- ported by Lieutenants Bland, Hopkins and Bushby, and Lieutenant Bulkley of the marines, in the Lively's - boat, and Lieutenants Gage and Maling in La Miner- ve's boats, and under a smart fire of musquetry from the brig, boarded and carried her almost immediately. This gave an alarm to the town, and a heavy fire of artillery and musquetry was opened from every part of the garrison, and from a large ship lying in the road immediately, which continued without intermission for near an hour, during which time they were very much exposed in getting the brig under- weigh, and towing her out, there being very little wind, and a little before four o'clock they had got out of reach of the Batteries with La Mutine French National Corvette, of 12 six- pounders and 1 thirty- six- pounder carronades, and one hundred and thirty- five men, one hundred and thirteen of whom were on board at the time, commanded by Citizen Xavier Paumier, Capitain de Frigate. She sailed from Brest on the 8th for L'Isle de France, and His Majesty sloop Kingsfisher being in sight I have directed Capt. Maitland to proceed to Lisbon with the prize and prisoners. I have the honour to be, & c. J. N. MORRIS. Boston, off Vigo, June 10, 1797. SIR, I HAVE the honour to inform you, that yesterday at noon his Majesty's ship under my command gave chace to a brig, and at six o'clock brought her to, close in | with the Bayona Islands, at the entrance of Vigo : she proves to be his Catholic Majesty's packet El Enfante, and sailed the evening before from Corunna, and was bound for the Havannah. I have the honour to be, & c. J. N. MORRIS Extract of a letter from SIR HARY NEALE, Bart, to LORD BRIDPORT. St. Fiorenzo, Torbay, July 8, 1797. MY LORD, I BEG to inform you, that 1 captured the Castor, French lugger privateer, on the 1st inst. sixty leagues west of Scilly, pierced for fourteen guns, and manned with 57 men : She had been out from St. Maloes 18 days, and had taken the Resolution brig belonging to Tinmouth, laden with salt. She threw her guns over- board during the chace. I have the honour to be, & c. H. NEALE. From the LONDON PAPERS, July 11. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Monday, July 10. The bill to prevent Officers of Excise and Customs voting at Elections in Scotland, was read a third time and passed. The new House Duty Bill was read a third time and passed. VOLUNTEER CAVALRY. The Chancellor of the Exchequer stated, that these corps had originally been equipped with arms and ac- coutrements by subscription, but it was not to be sup- posed that this was to be continued, so as to free the public from any expence upon their account. At pre- sent it was not his intention to propose any permanent establishment, but he took this opportunity of declaring in the most public manner his opinion, that whether the war was continued, or whether a peace was concluded, the country ought not to part with a corps which con- tributed so much to its security ; and he announced his intention of proposing, next Session of Parliament, some systematic and permanent provision, for the purpose of maintaining them as a military force in the country. — At present he should only move that a sum be grant- ed to his Majesty to defray the expence of their cloth- ing and accoutrements for the ensuing year. He sup- posed as they were not often called out upon duty, one suit of clothes every four years would be sufficient; which would be attended with an expence to the coun- try of about 3I. a man per annum. There were at pre sent about 10,000 men of this description in the coun- try ( and he hoped that the number would rather be in- creased than diminished), and according to the calcula- tion the sum wanted would be 30,000). He moved a resolution to this effect, which was agreed to by the Committee. The Chancellor of the Exchequer moved, that to make good the supply granted to his Majesty the sum of two millions be granted to his Majesty out of the consolidated fund.— Agreed to. ' The bill for preventing the counterfeiting Copper and other Coin, & c. was read a second time. SHIP OWNERS BILL. The house then proceeded on the bill for relief of Ship- Owners. Petitions were presented against the bill from Man- chester, and from the Merchants of London and South- wark, from Berwick, from Bolton, and various other places. The Master of the Rolls wished to hear what Coun- sel had to say upon this important question of law. Counsel were heard, and evidence was examined ai the bar on behalf of the petitioners against the Bill. It was afterwards proposed that the report of the Bill should be further considered to morrow ; but the Chancellor of the Exchequer observed, that as the sub- ject was of immense importance, he could not make up his mind upon it soon, and therefore desired that it should stand for Wednesday.— Ordered. Adjourned. [ During the debate on the Ship Owners' Bill, a man. apparently or pretendedly deranged in his mind, forced his way through the lower door into the House, and said, he wanted to seize the Mace, to purge the Parlia- ment ; as it was sold, and he knew the buyers. A- mong other incoherent expressions, he said, that foreign nations were disposed to Peace, and so were we ; that of the House R for 1797. JULY 14. trouble, he was taken out, and induced to go away without further notice. LONDON. LEEWARD ISLAND FLEET. This morning the agreeable intelligence reached town, that the Leeward Island Fleet yesterday parted by Portsmouth, standing up channel, under convoy of the Vanguard, of 74 guns, and the Alarm frigate.— The arrival of the whole in the Downs may be expeCt- ed this day. ___ PARIS PAPERS to the 8th inst. are received. The arrival of Lord MALMESBURY at Lisle had been notified at Paris by the Telegraph. The DIRECTORY have addressed a message to the COUNCIL, of FIVE HUNDRED, giving an account of a general attack having taken place in the north of St. Domingo, in which the English were defeated, and lost 1000 killed and prisoners. Neither the date, nor any circumstances of the action, are mentioned. The message from the DIRECTORY adds: " It appears certain, that on the 22d Floreal, the brave TOusAiNT LOUVERTURE surrounded Port- au- Prince, after having captured Mirabalais, taken pos- session of the camps and forts of Buisson and Rodrillon, and dispersed the English and Emigrant troops, com- manded by M. DESSOURCE, and M. le Baron MON- TALEMBERT— more than a thousand of the enemy were killed and made prisoners in this affair. " The letter from the Consul at New York, dated 3d Prairial, is couched in these words : " Many private letters received here from Port- au- Prince, confirm beyond a doubt our success at St. Do- mingo. Consternation and horror reign at Port- au- Prince, and they talk of an immediate evacuation. ( Signed) " CARNOT, President, " LAGARDE, Sec. Gen." The town of Lyons is a prey to the most dreadful disorders. In the sitting of the Council of Five Hun- dred on the 4th inst. a message was received from the DIRECTORY, stating, that the most horrid massacres and assassinations were daily committed at Lyons and the neighbourhood. had put into the Bay of Santa Cruz, three days before she was captured, to take in water. The Captain was on shore at the time she was cut out. Lieut. Hardy having commanded the boats on this expedition, I have sent him in with the prize, and can- not recommend him or the Officers or Seamen employ- ed on that service with him, in too strong terms.

Boston, off Vigo, June 4, 1797 SIR. t HAVE the honour to inform you, his Majesty's ship this . morning, after a chace of three hours, captured El P. incipe de Paz Spanish brig privateer, of 20 guns and men she sailed evening from Vigo on her first cruize. It is with extreme concern I have to add, that the only one of her shot that took effect kill- ed Mr. Mainwaring, midshipman, a very amiable' war was only carried on by the Member: young gentleman, of great promise as an officer who might make peace in an hour.— After some little ] This morning Brussels Papers to the 6th inst were received. An article from Vienna of the 23d June, says, that the conclusion of the Definitive Treaty of Peace will be subject to great obstacles, if, as they are assured, the French insist that the Dutchy of Mantua, as well as the Ecclesiastical States after the death of the POPE, and the Terra Firma of Venice, and the Dutchies of Modena and Parma, shall be united to the new Lombard Republic. The fortress of Ehrenbreitstein has been provisioned for two years, and the magazines are not touched, the garrison receiving a supply of provisions every eight days from Mentz. An article from Worms of the 29th June, states, that large quantities of artillery were arriving in the envi- rons of Creutznach, and orders had been for the imme- diate repair of the road to Mentz. The celebrated Count BERNSTORFF, Prime Minister of Denmark, died at Copenhagen on the 21st ult. A change was spoken of in the Imperial Cabinet. Apprehensions are entertained at Paris of a re- com- mencement of hostilities between France and Austria. These letters, we are informed, state, that, on the 5th, it was announced in Paris, and made a very considerable sensation, that BUONAPARTE, in a letter to the Directory, stated that he had seen with great uneasiness the dila- tory spirit of the Court of Vienna in regard to the de- finitive treaty; that the jealousy between the outposts of the two Armies was daily fermenting into discord, and that even some aCts of hostility had taken place in the Friuli that in consequenee of this he had made a peremptory remonstrance, but entirely in the loyalty of pacific intention, which he had no doubt would be effectual; but if it should not he informs the Citizens Directors that he is prepared yo force the EMPEROR to fulfil his engagements to the REPUBLIC. His Army is more powerful than at the epoch of the Armistice, since he has now removed all apprehensions of attack by the Powers of Italy and can bring all his force to bear on the hereditary dominions of Austria. It appears from the Hamburgh Mail that the EM- PEROR is reinforcing his army with as much vigour, as if no Negociation were pending ; and some rumours prevail of an apprehended recommencement of hosti- lities. In Italy affairs continue in a state of the utmost confu- sion a revolutionary Spirit has manifested itself every where, of which BUONAPARTE is the directing genius; a counter disposition however lurks in secret, the effects of which are the frequent massacre of some of the more JULy 14. THE ED aCtive of the French Agents. The Commander in Chief, BUONAPARTe, meanwhile, it is evident, is not without some fears for his personal safety, as he never appears abroad without a strong guard of chosen fa- vourites. BUONAPARTE, according to the opinion of many intelligent correspondents, is certainly endeavouring to establish himself in Italy independent of France. He has formed an army consisting of upwards of seventy thousand men, of whom but a very small portion are Frenchmen, and of these he is getting rid as fast as he can. He is already distinguished in that quarter by a name, analagous to that of OLIVER CROMWELL, as he has promised to be the Protector of the Republics he has founded. The Departments of France continue in a very agi- tated state. In their journey from Calais to Lisle, our Commis- sioners were received with the warmest cordiality by the people, whose eager desire of peace was manifested by the acclamations with which they hailed them as the pro- bable heralds of the blessing. At Ardres, at St. Omer's, and Cassel, they were received under a discharge of artil- lery, and at the latter place they were met by a Gen- tleman Usher of the French Commissioners who direc- ted the cavalcade to Lisle. The concourse assembled on the ramparts was immense. The Rue Nationale was lined by the citizens under arms, and the train was conducted to the hotel which had been prepared for their reception. The processions were conducted with theatrical eclat; and the parties met on Thursday morning for the exchange of credentials, which took place under the most promising appearances of a mu- tual desire to facilitate the objeCt of their commission. Having done this, LETOURNEUR, the French Presi- dent, invited Lord MALMESBURY to postpone the o- pening of the negociation till the next day, that they might take repose after their journey. A Cabinet Council was held yesterday upon Lord MALMESBURY'S dispatches, and a Messenger was to be dispatched to Lisle this day. Two Packets from Har- wich are to ply between Dover and Calais, for the pur- pose of facilitating the communications upon this im portant occasion. Letters received this day from Lord BRIDPORT'S fleet contain the pleasing intelligence, that the whole ships continued in the most exaCt state of discipline and su- bordination, and are making the utmost exertions to proceed to sea. The following horrible faCt is related by Capt. Pratt, who is arrived from Carthagena, and had it from the schooner, Polly and Jenny, Capt Parson. The schooner mounted 14 guns, and was met with on her passage from Jamaica bv two Spanish privateers one of 16 guns and another of 10 guns— The engage ment commenced at a little to the leeward of Cartnage- na, and continued for two hours, when the Spaniards boarded the schooner, and barbarously murdered the captain, first and second lieutenants, surgeon and two seamen in the cabin. The body of the captain was afterwards hauled upon deck, and his head chopped off. Those who were not Englishmen on board es- caped this treatment— and no pretence can be assigned for this barbarity, unless the gallant resistance of Capt. Parson and hie crew can be deemed one DEATH OF THE RIGHT HON. EDMUND BURKE, On Saturday night, at his seat near Beaconsfield, after a long and painful illness, which he bore with a pious fortitude, worthy of his character, died, in the 68th year of his age, the Right Hon. EDMUND BURKE. His end was suited to the simple greatness of mind which he displayed through life, every way unaffected, without levity, without ostentation, full of natural grace and dignity. He appeared neither to wish nor to dread but patiently and placidly to await, the appointed hour of his dissolution. He had been listening to some Essays of ADDISON'S, in which he ever took delight; he had recommended himself in many affectionate messages to the remembrance of those absent friends whom he had never ceased to love ; he had conversed some time with his accustomed force of thought and expression, on tbe awful situation of his country, for the welfare of which his heart was interested to the last beat; he had given with steady composure some private directions in con- templation of his approaching death ; when, as his at- tendants were conveying him to his bed, he sunk down, and after a short struggle, passed quietly, and without a groan, to eternal rest, in that mercy, which he had just declared he had long sought with unfeigned humi- liation, and to which he looked with a trembling hope Of his talents and acquirements in general; it is un- necessary to speak. They were long the glory of his country, and the admiration of Europe. He was not the , most accomplished orator, yet the most eloquent man of his age perhaps second to none in any age. He diligently collected it from the wise of all times; but what he had so obtained, he enriched from the vast trea- sury of his own observation and his intellect, active, vigorous, comprehensive, trained in the discipline of true philosophy, to whatever subject he applied it, pe- netrated at once through the surface into the effential forms of things. With regard to his Political Writings,- mankind will judge of them according to their different political prin- ciples, but, persons of all parties will admit, that they possess a brilliancy of imagination, and fervour of dic- tion, unrivalled by the writers of ancient or modern times. In all his policy he was. strictly practical, and in his practice he always regarded with holy reverence the institutions and manners derived from our ancestors._ His private conversation had the same tincture with his public eloquence. He sometimes adorned and dig- nified it with philosophy, but he never lost the charm of natural ease. There was no subject so trivial which he did not transiently illuminate with the brilliancy of his imagination. In writing, in speaking, in the Se- nate, or round the table, it was easy to trace the ope- rations of the same genius. To the Protestant Religion, as by law established, he was attached from sincere conviction; nor was his a barren belief without influence of his moral conduct.— A husband of exemplary tenderness and fidelity ; a fa- ther fond to excess; the most affectionate of brothers-; the kindest master; and, he has been often heard to de- clare, that in the most anxious moments of his public life, every care vanished when he entered his own house. The Court Martial pronounced sentence on the four Mutineers on board the Phoenix, on Saturday, viz. Colin Browne to be hanged by the neck until dead. Hays to be kept in solitary confinement in the Marshal- sea prison for two years; and O'Neil for one year.— Gray to receive 2oo lashes round the fleet on his bare back. Needs was acquitted. TRIAL of MUTINEERS, [ Continued from last ADVERTISER.) NAVAL COURT MARTIAL. Saturday, July 8.— FOURTEENTH DAY. M'Carty produced a written defence, and prayed the Court to permit Mr. Alley to read it for him, which was done— He admitted that he was on board the Iris, and read a paper to the crew— but that he was compelled by Par- ker to undertake this embassy, and threatened with death in case of the least refusal. He also acknowledged that he had gone and read several papers on board of the Pylades, where he went, not as a volunteer, but sent as a prisoner by Parker. Two Delegates or Committee- men always attended on these occasions to compel him to read those papers ; and certain it is, that if he dis- obeyed, death must instantly have followed.— Thus situated he acted against his inclination, and his will ne- ver accompanied the deed. He did every thing his situation would permit to curb the desire of those who wished to proceed farther, and often, at the hazard of his life, requested the pardon should be accepted, and was thankful for the indulgence his Majesty had gra- ciously extended. For this endeavour he was brought to trial by Parker, condemned to death, and carried on board the Brilliant for the purpose of execution. In- deed, so far had his execution proceeded, that the rope was round his neck, and he was drawn up from off the deck, and would have been sacrificed, had not the humanity of a few protected him. To prove this, he called Stephen Reat, who proved, that when M'Carty came on board the Brilliant, as one of a boat's crew from the Pylades; he was taken into the Waste, a rope' with a noose and well greased was put about his neck, and that about fifty men on the forcastle, who had hold of the other end of the rope, hauled him up a piece from the deck. He was rescued by a party in the Waste, who rushed forward and cut the rope as he was hoisting up. The reason assigned for this transaction was, that after Admiral BUCKNER came on board the Fleet, MlCarty had been desirous of accepting his Ma- jelty's pardon, and opposed Parker in the Committee. Gregory addressed the Court in a short speech, and made some very ingenious comments upon the evi- dence. He did not deny being a Member of the Com- mittee, but argued, that while in it, he had always endeavoured to moderate their proceedings, and to do all the good in his power. The men, who were now brought forward, selected as objects of trial, were, he asserted, the most worthy part of the seamen, and those who had saved the fleet from destruction.'— He concluded by submitting himself to the justice and mercy of the Court. He then called Stephen Reat, who deposed, that the prisoner came on hoard the Brilliant, on the 8th of June, and read tHe King's pardon. That he told the ship's company they had now a fair opportunity, if they chused to return to their duty. In consequence of this, some of the peo- ple expressed their readiness to accept the pardon.'—• These men, however, were soon put in irons, but not until Gregory had left the ship. John Aberdeen proved the same as the former wit- ness. He was one of the men who were put in Irons for offering to accept the pardon. In answer to a question from the Prosecutor, the Witness deposed, that he heard Gregory say, " Those who accept the pardon will be sent on shore, and may return to their tyrannical Officers." A Duel took place a few days since at Athlone, in Ire- land, between Major Carr, and Captain Somerville, both of the Carbineers, in which the former was wounded. On Sunday last, a most violent storm of hail and rain fell at Bushbury, Cardington, and Stone Acton in Shropshire, which was succeeded by a sudden flood, that carried away the bridges and flood- gate between Cardington and Eaton, and overflowed the country foe eight miles. Several sheep were drowned, and the Miller of Stone Acton was confined for some time to the upper loft. Sunday afternoon, during a violent thunder- storm, a ball of fire entered the dwelling- house of Mrs. Collis, of Mears- Ashby, near Wellingborough, in Northamp- tonshire, which set fire to the clothes of a young lady who was there on a visit, and burnt her in such a shock- ing manner, that her life is despaired of. The house was also set on fire, but was happily extinguished with- out much damage. LORD HOLLAND is at length married to the divorced wife of Sir GODFREY WEBSTER.

BANKRUPT. R. Kent, of Sonning, Maltster, EDINBURGH No farther communications have been received from Lord MALMESBURY. The next dispatch will proba- bly be an important one, though it is very generally reported that the basis of Negociation was perfectly understood, and in a great measure settled, before the departure of his Lordship from ENGLAND. The last dispatches from the EARL of ST. VINCENT, are dated the 15th ult. on which day the Spanijh Ad- miral had made the signal for the whole fleet to un- moor, with a view of breaking our line of battle which blocks up the Port of Cadiz, and of putting to sea ; but the wind shifting, tbe Spanish fleet dropped anchor without changing any part of its position, " The KING of SPAIN has lately arrived at Cadiz with a view of quieting the minds of the Merchants there, and to accelerate the tardy operations of the Marine. The Merchants have, on his occasion, pre- sented a Memorial to his Majesty,. setting forth the hardships they labour under in the interruption of their Commerce, from, the Port of Cadiz having been so long and so closely blockaded, that no ship could sail from or enter it. The KING gave for answer, that his Admiral had received his final instructions, which are supposed to be to risk an engagement. The Spanish Fleet consists of thirty sail of the line ; our's is only twenty- two— nine of which are, however, three- deck ers. From the admirable position of our fleet, and the skill and bravery of our officers and seamen, the Noble Commander is under no anxiety for the result. We on Tuesday stated, that accounts had been re- ceived at the Admiralty, of the capture of a rich Spa- nish ship by some of Lord ST. VINCenT'S fleet. She was taken by the Raven brig, commanded by Captain JAMES, and is valued at 300,000!. The account was brought to the Admiralty by Capt. PUGFT. Capt. JAMES was a Lieutenant in the action of the 14th of February, was promoted upon that, glorious event, and was appointed to the Raven brig in the room of Capt. PUGET. Fresh accounts received from America announce, that the most vigorous and decided measures were tak- ing throughout the UNITED STATES to resist the ag- gressions of France. The HousE of REPRESENTATIVES of tbe UNITED STATES of AMERICA have voted ten resolutions, the substance of which is, that the three frigates building should be immediately compleated ; that several others should be taken into pay to act as convoys ; that mer- chant vessels should have licences to arm ; that the pre- sent regular land force should be increased ; and a large provisional force should be raised for the defence of such parts of the coast as should be deemed vulnerable.

" The Favourite, Looney, one of the Leeward Isl- and fleet, arrived yesterday, from whom we have the following particulars : " The fleet, 160 in number, sailed from Tortola on the 21st June, under convoy of the Vanguard and St. Amasia of 74 guns, and were joined by the Demarara fleet on the Banks of Newfoundland, and Alarm fri- gate— parted with them on Thursday last off Cape Clear, all well, when every vessel was in company ex- cept a heavy sailing brig, name not known, for Glas- gow, which lost the fleet about the 22d ult. and a priva- teer brig, name not known, for this port, that left the fleet early in June. " The vessels bound up the Irish Channel were con- voyed by the Alarm frigate, as far as Waterford." IRELAND. DUBLIN, July 3. " The Dissolution of Parliament is a measure, resolv- ed on, and is hourly expected to take place. Many Gentlemen have departed from the metropolis to make their elections. On Wednesday last a number of persons were brought in by Capt. Holland of the Muff Yeomanry, and a party of his men : with one of the above persons were found two pikes, which were ordered to be struck through his hat; and in this manner he was exposed till he was lodged in jail. " Yesterday James Burnside, Daniel Shanaghan, John Barret, John Gordon, and Samuel Kennedy, were brought up from Kilmainham Gaol to the Court of King's Bench, in order to plead to indictments for High Treason found against them at Carrickfergus As- sizes. The indictments were read, charging them with comparing the death of the King and adhering to his enemies. The overt- acts laid were, assembling and conspiring to raise troops to levy war against the King, receiving returns of such levies, raising money to pur- chase arms — purchasing arms, & c. & c.— They several ly pleaded NOT GUILTY, and their Trials were ap pointed for difFerent days in next Term." CLONARD, June 17. " Matters here have put on a most pleasing aspect.— Already above FOUR THOUSAND people of this neigh- bourhood have taken the Oath of Allegiance, and as a proof of their sincerity have brought in upwards of 150 stand of arms. In the District of Castlejordan, those who have thus returned to their allegiance have formed an Association for the purpose of preserving the peace, and bringing to justice the persons who have been most active in seducing them ; they have lately brought in three young men of the name of Hussey, nephews of the good and pious Doctor of that name, the Titular Bishop of Waterford. Among many other seditious and inflammatory papers found in their possession, were several copies of that mild and conciliatory Pastoral Letter lately published by their liberal and respectable Uncle. " Yesterday, Walter Nugent, Esq; at the desire of the Magistrates who attended our last sessions, waited on Capt. FRASER, of the Fraser Regiment, ( the Offi- cer commanding here) to communicate to him in their name, their entire approbation of his very spirited ex- ertions, and those of the Officers' and Privates under his command, requesting at the same time that the pri vates might be permitted to receive ten guineas to drink his Majesty's health. This favour, ( which was present- ed by Mr. Nugent to compliment the loyalty and va- lour of the men,) they received with three cheers, shouting with one voice, " The King, God bless him, has enabled us to drink his health every day." These marks of public approbation will best explain to you,, the respect and estimation in which our country holds that brave and gallant regiment. " We will, if you permit us, ( say they,) purchase medals for our company, expressive of loyalty to our King, and gratitude to the gentlemen of the Clonard Association. ' " Since the proclamation 8582 persons have taken the oath of allegiance before Thomas Morris Jones, Esq; of Moneyglass. " On the 1st inst. a duel was fought at the camp, between Capt. JONES of the Sligo, and Mr. GALAGHER of the Leitrim regiments of militia, when, after ex- changing two shots each, Mr. G. received the last shot of his adversary in the right side of the abdomen.— There are no hopes of his recovery." HIGH COURT OF JUSTICIARY. On Wednesday came on before this Supreme Court the trial of William Qak, weaver in Johnston, in the County of Renfrew, and Thomas Potts, weaver at Williamsburgh, or Cotslets, in the same county, for house- breaking and robbery. William Oak, not appearing, was outlawed. Thomas Potts being put to the Bar, the Indictment was read over which states that he and Oak, with others their associates, armed with swords, bludgeons, & c. did on the 19th of March laft break into the house of John Barr, farmer in Gryfescastle, in the parish of Houston, and county of Renfrew, and afterwards into the room where John Barr and his wife were sleeping; and obliged him by threats to inform them where his. money was deposited, which they seized, to the amount of eleven guineas ; that they afterwards broke open a chest of drawers, and took from thence some silver money and other valuables, & c. The particulars were stated at length in this paper of the 28th March last. The robbery, & c. was proved by John Barr, Janet M'Lellan his wife, and Jean Donaldson, James Rowan, and Joseph Lang, their servants. Three of the witnesses swore that the Prisoner was one of the \ perfons that robbed the house— as also George Aitchi- son ho broke open the door and took the money. George Aitchison, weaver in Irvine, ( an Irishman), turned King's evidence, and gave an account of the Robbery, similar to what we have already stated On the day of the robbery, he met Oak and Potts— They afterwards met at Birhead,. near Paisley, and went to a public- house, and Concerted the plan of the Robbery, with one Pullans, an Irishman. Oak led the way, as he knew the house— they broke open the door and com- mitted the robbery. Pullans struck the bed- post with a knife, ( shewn in Court,) and threatened them to make them discover their money. When they returned to Oak's house, the money, amounting to 11I. in notes, 1 I. in silver, and some silver spoons was divided. he had two notes and some silver for his share— When he was in prison, a book was sent him by Potts the Pri- soner. ( The book, a volume of Hall's Contemplations, was here produced. On a leaf of it was written " my let- ters will be run out on the 21st of May, and my trial comes on twenty days after that;" by which the wit- ness understood that he was running his letters to bring on his trial. The words " I will never deceive ye and similar expressions were written in other parts of the book.) A knife was also produced in Court, which the wit- nesses swore to, as the one the robbers threatened to kill them with, if they did not produce their money. Aitchison, cross examined— He could not be sure whether the prisoner broke open any drawer, or took . money in Barr's house. The door was broke open by Pullans, or the prisoner, or perhaps by both. Could not say that he saw the prisoner strike the door. Did not see him do any thing in the house. Some witnesses were produced as to the Prisoner's character. The LORD ADVOCATE addressed the Jury on the part of the Crown, as did Mr. FERGUSON on that of the prisoner. The LORD JUSTICE CLERK summed up the evidence with his usual ability and accuracy. The Jury returned their verdict yesterday, unanimously finding the prisoner GUILTY. He was sentenced to be hang- ed atPaisley on Thursday the 17th of August next. Counsel for the Crown— The LORD ADVOCATE and JOHN BURNETT, Esq;— Agent, Mr. H. WARRENDER. Counsel for the Prisoner— JAMES FERGUSON and WALTER ScoTt, Esqrs;— Agents, Mr. JOHN CAMP- BELL quartus, and Mr. ROBERT CATHCART, writers to the signet. GENERAL COURT MARTIAL AT AYR, . ( Continued from last ADVERTISER.^ With regard to the second charge, it appeared in evidence, that Capt. Gordon came up behind Colonel Woodford, and struck him on the back with a stick which knocked off his bonnet; upon which the Co- lonel faced about and attempted to draw, his sword, but before he could get it drawn, Capt. Gordon gave him a second blow, after which the parties were seperated With regard to the third charge, it appeared that Col. Woodford had sent after Capt. Gordon, who had gone to Kilmarnock, to put him under arrest and bring him to Head- Quarters. The Prisoner faid he had nothing at all to do with him, refused to comply, and proceeded to Edinburgh. The Prisoner in his defence stated, that at the time the assault was committed, he was not under the com- mand of the prosecutor— that he had leave of absence, and was walking as a private gentleman, in coloured clothes— that he had received excessive provocation from the prosecutor, who had, under the mask of friend- ship, seduced the prisoner's wife, the mother of seven children, with whom he had lived in happiness for many years. Several witnesses were then called for the prisoner, whose evidence tended to establish the general fact, that the parties were face to face, when the scuffle commenced. The prisoner was then proceeding to call evidence, that he was absent from the Regiment by leave from the Commander in Chief; this fact the pro- fecutor admitted, so that it was unnecessary to call wit- nesses. Several regimental orders were then called for and read, from which the prisoner inferred, that the Head- quarters of the regiment was not the town of Ayr, but the camp in the neighbourhood ; so much so, that re giments quartered in the former had received a route to march to the latter. This closed the defence for the prisoner. Further proceedings will be given afterwards. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. Monday, the CHAMBER of COMMERCE elected the following Gentlemen as Office Bearers for the ensuing year: Sir WILLIAM FORBES of Pitsligo, Bart. Chairman. William Sibbald, Esq; Senior Deputy- Chairman.

Yesterday Colonel FERRIER inspected the second re- giment of ROYAL GLASGOW VOLUNTEERS, com- manded by JAMES M'DOWALL, Esq; Lord Provost of that city, and was highly pleased with their appea ranee. The Colonel afterwards reviewed the first re- giment of ROYAL GLASGOW VOLUNTEERS, who went through their various evolutions with their ac customed promptitude and precision, and of conse- quence, deserved and obtained the approbation of the Colonel, as well as the applause of a great concourse of people. From the reports to the House of Commons, in the case of the Importers of Foreign Corn, into Great Britain, during the scarcity in 1796, it appears, that they lost L. 105,458, by the importation, which they have submitted to Parliament for an indemnification. On Friday last, a genteel looking man was taken up at Kilmarnock, on suspicion of uttering a forged note of the Paisley Banking Company. He under- went a long examination before one of the Magistrates of Kilmarnock. In his examination, he confessed he went to a milliner's shop there, and bought a piece of muslin, for which he paid one of the notes, but the Lady entertaining some suspicions that it was not ge- nuine, returned it to him at the Angel Inn, where he immediately destroyed it, and a great many more, as was evident from the impression of the plate upon the ashes in the chimney. He was sent to Glasgow jail. Monday, an unfortunate squabble happened at Dal- keith, between James Mackenzie, a labouring man, and Thomas Moir, a plasterer, in which the latter struck the former so violent a blow on the head with a ham- mer as to occasion his instant death.— Moir was imme- diately apprehended, and, on Tuesday, was brought to town, and committed to prison. On the 4th inlt. was married Mr. George Glennie, Assistant Professor of Moral Philosophy, in the Maris- chal College, Aberdeen, to Miss Margaret Valen- tine, daughter of the deceased Mr. John Valentine, merchant in Montrose, and niece of Dr. Beattie. Married on the 2d inst. Mr. Archibald Young, wri- ter in Banff, to Miss Jane Donaldson, eldest daughter of the deceased James Donaldson, of Kinnairdy. On Monday, at Levenbank, was married, Mr. David Arthur, to Miss Helen Todd, daughter of Mr. John Todd of Leven Printfield. Died at Bonnington, in Lanarkshire, on Wednesday the 5th of July curt. John Ross, only son of Sir Charles Ross of Balnagown, Bart. Died, on Thursday se'ennight, John Clendening, M. D. Dublin, much regretted. At Stagshawbank fair, ( Newcastle) on Tuesday last, neither the buyers nor sellers were 10 numerous as at many former fairs ; horses were in general low priced, but cattle of condition sold high ; lean sheep were re- markably cheap ; and swine experienced a considerable advance from the prices of the last fair. Friday last, M'Kinnon, weaver in Anderston, went in to bathe in the river Clyde, near that place, but going beyond his depth, was drowned. His body was not found till Monday. On Monday, while a young girl was diverting her- self on the banks of the Clyde, at Peat bog, she fell in, where the water is about 20 feet deep. Fortunately, a young man, who was resting himself hard by, roused by the shrieks of some women who saw the girl fall in, plunged in and brought her on ashore.
