• Vol.' LXX. T H E EDINBURGH ADVERTISER From TUESDAY OCTOBER. I, to FRIDAY OCTOBER 5, 1798. THURSDAY's POST. From the LONDON PAPERS, Oct. 1. LONDON. SEVERAL Cartel vessels are now preparing at Dover to convey the French prisoners in this country to France, and to bring in exchange the British prisoners now in that country. The 32 English prisoners landed from „ a French flag of truce on Fridav morn- ing at Ramsgate, are all Fishermen, who are sent without exchange, as by the late Cartel all persons of that descrip- tion are not to be considered as prisoners of war. An order has been sent from the Admiralty to the Port Admiral at Spithead, for the usual precautions at the setting in of the Winter half year. The harbour nightly rowers are, the approaching season, to be augmented to eight instead of four; the duty to be performed alternately by the boats of the squadron, and officers from their respeCtive ships. A large gun boat is to be stationed off St. Helen's Point, and two small cutter* to cruize from thence from the close of the day till day- light the succeeding morning. ,". In consequence of information having been received by Government that the French had prepared several vessels of various descriptions,. with combustibles, for the purpose of setting fire to our ships at Spithead, as well as those in the harbour, and to Portsmouth dock- yard, orders have been received by the guardships at St. Helen's, & c. to examine every vessel that arrives, and to detain such as are in the least suspicious. Yesterday Capt. Sir SYDNEY SMITH, of the Tigre man of war of 80 guns, who has been in town some days, on business at the Admiralty, set off for Portsmouth, to join his ship ; in which he is said to be going on a secret expe- dition with a detached squadron. The spirit of this young officer is unbroken ; nor has his valour been deprest by his late long and severe captivity in France. The Amphion frigate, in company with the Speedwell brig, has captured a vessel of about loo tons burden, la- den with hemp, iron, and other naval stores,, bound from Petersburgh to Amsterdam, supposed to be worth 1o. oool The prize is arrived at Yarmouth. PICHEGRU professes the warmed gratitude for the kind ness which he experienced from the officers of the Wasse- naer, who shewed to this unfortunate General all the polite- ness of English Gentlemen, and all the generosity of English Seamen. The Dutch, from the commencement of tbe war, have been the greatest sufferers by it. All parties have gained from them. The English have made themselves masters of their Foreign Possessions, and now the merchants of Holland com- plain, that the French ships cruizing off the entrance of the Dutch ports and rivers take all the ships that attempt to en ter, whether Neutral or belonging to Allies, and carry them to Ostend, Dunkirk, and even into the ports of Holland, un- der pretence of exercising a judicial authority independent of the law of the country, t0 declare them lawful prizes. The Sale of Indulgences constitutes one of the accusa- tions against the Romish Church, for which the French Directory, considering themselves as the ministers of Divine Vengeance, exaCt punishment. We find, however, that ScheeReR, the French War Minister, is not free from sus- picion of having b; en guilty of the same offence. He is charged by BRIOT, - representative of the people, with having sold 40,000 furloughs, or leaves of absence. The celebrated MALLET DU PAN, in the work which HE has lately published, on the subject of the Subjugation of Switzerland by the French, pays the following homage to the British Nation :—" Along with Switzerland," says he, " I have lost my country, my relations, and my friends . mournful remembrances alone are left me. Perhaps should I now be without an asylum, had not Providence reserved for me a port, where, without fear, I can raise my voice a- gainst tyrants seized with madness. whose haughty impotence threatens in vain this last rampart of Ancient Europe. It is under the protection of this firm immoveable Nation, that I here depose my observations and complaints. But for its magnanimity, I should still feel the tortures of a forced silence — No gratitude can ever requite for this delivery !" The Small- pox and. Fever have raged with great and fatal violence at Paris for some time past. All the eastern. coast of the gulph of Finland has been ravaged by a dreadful storm. The powder- magazines at Cronstadt were twice set fire to, and blew up with a dreadful explosion. Several persons were killed. The Irishmen on board his Majesty's ship Sans Pareil. have published a paper strongly expressive of their abhor- rence of the- conduCt of certain of their countrymen belong- ing to the fleet, and vindicating the Irish national character from the general imputation, which they suppose is in con Sequence likely to go forth. On the 17th ult. a large quantity of foul air broke out in a coal- pit belonging to Mr. Whittuck, of Hanham, occasion ed by the proprietor having stopped a communication be- tween that pit and the Duke of Beaufort's coal- work adjoin- ing; by which accident the whole pit's company, consisting of 19 men and boys, were in imminent danger of being suf- focated ; but seeking timely- assistance from some of his. Grace's colliers that were at work very near, they all pro videntially escaped though some were saved with great dif- ficulty the foul air. continuing so very powerful as to render fruitless all the endeavours, made for several days together, to purify the coal pit, and fit it for work again. Sunday afternoon, about six o'clock, the village of Hox ton was thrown into a violent alarm by the escape of fif- teen madmen, from a well- known house in that neighbour- hood ; but a police officer being upon the spot, and a num- ber of persons charged to aid and assist, eight or nine of them were soon apprehended. Yesterday three men were committed to New Prison by WILLIAM BLAMIRE Esq; CHARGED with stealing a leg of mutton ready dressed. with a dish containing the same, from a pUblic- house in Goswell- street, when they adjourned to another public- house to regale themselves, where they put up a large score, of which they attempted to trick the land- lord. Bridgewater Bridge.— This struCture, which is principal- ly composed of Cast iron, brought in pieces from Coalbrook- dale, Shropshire, by water carriage, is now pretty well com- pleted ; it consists of one arch, the span of which is 75 feet; the road way is 14 feet in the clear, including two foot pave- ways ; it is lighted with six lamps. The expence of ereCt- ing the bridge is about 4000l. which was colleCted by an ad- ditional toll on all the turnpikes leading to the town. Mr. Thomas Carpenter surgeon, of Bridport, was lately found drowned in the river, at Wareham. It appeared on the Inquest, that instead of visiting a patient at Godmanston, for which purpose be left home, he went to the woods, where he wandered about several days, gathering nuts, a large quantity of which, with his hat and pocket- book, were found in the neighbourhood of Critchel.— The Jury found a verdict of Lunacy. Death having of late been more than ordinarily prevalent amongst the Soldiery at Silver Hill, the bodies of several who died, were in cOnsequence opened, when it appeared, be- yond a doubt, that their deaths were occasioned by eating too freely of nuts. The Bon Mot without a joke.— A daughter of a labourer, who had been in service in the Pottery, in Staffordshire, from her childhood, when weary, would be frequently wishing to be married, that, as she emphatically termed it, she might rest her bones. Hymen at last listened to her prayers, and a neighbouring clodhopper led her to the altar, " nothing loth." Some time afterwards her late mistress meeting her, asked her, " Well Mary, have you rested your bones yet ?" " Yes indeed," replied she with a sigh, " my jaw bones." The following article appeared in a late Italian News- paper: " A woman at Florence, after losing four children by cutting their teeth, saved five others by rubbing their gums with virgin honey on the first indication of pain, and repeating the operation whenever the children showed signs of un- easiness. It is added, that the same experiment has been tried with equal success on other children." This DAI IS PUBLISHED, And Sold by J. SIMPSON, and PETER HILL, Cross, Edinburgh— A. BROWN, Aberdeen— and J.

The Meeting unanimously made choice of DONALD MACLEOD of Geanies, Esq; Sheriff- depute of Ross, to be Preses, and ALEX. MACDONELL, writer in Inverness, to be Clerk.. , Thereafter, the following PLAN was suggested to the Meeting: 1mo, That the Members of the present Meeting, and all Sheep farmers within the Counties of Inverness, Ross, and Sutherland, shall hereafter for every parcel of Sheep they deliver to a purchaser, or drive themselves from their Farms for sale, give or send a certi- ficate under the hand of the owner, or his manager, stating the number and kinds of sheep whereof the parcel consists, with the marks whereby they are distinguishable, and certifying ( as the faCt may be) that they have been fairly sold to the person or persons in whose custody they may be, or are driving on account of the pro- prietor for market or otherways, ( as the case may be) and to pre- sent the risk of such certificate being forged, that a plate shall be engraved conform to a plan produced, with blanks to be filled up according to circumstances, and after striking off a certain number of copies that the Plate and Certificates be lodged with Mr. Mac- Donell, clerk to the Association, who will distribute them solely to the Proprietors of Sheep Farms on receipt of paying some trifle for indemnifying the expence of the engraving and printing. 2do, That all Ferrymen, Constables or others residing in the course the sheep drivers usually take, or can possibly take, be required to' stop all sheep droves, and call for the certificate from the drivers-, and if he or they can produce no certificate, that they shall be direCted to bring the- driver-.- before- the next Justice of the Peace or - Civil Magistrate for examination, who will proceed as the case may require. ylo, That application be made by this Meeting to the Gentle- men of the counties of Inverness, Ross, and Sutherland, at their en- suing General Meetings at Michalmas, or at the first Quarter Ses- sions of the peace within the same, stating the suspicions of Theft - that are entertained, and praying them to interpone their authority, by directing all Ferrymen, Constables, or others to require the pro- duction of such certificates, and upon failure to bring the party be- fore the next Magistrate for examination, and certifying them, that if proof can be brought of their being remiss or negligent in the execution of their duty, that they shall be liable to prosecution and fine, for such neglect. 4/ 0, That application be also made to the Sheriff Deputes; of the several counties, that they do give pointed instruCtions to those men who are under their immediate direction, and paid by the public for pursuing and apprehending thieves and vagabonds, that they ' be peculiarly watchful over those who drive sheep through the hills, examine their certificates, and take down a memorandum in writ- ing of such certificate, stating from whence the sheep have been driven, to what market they are bound, with their number and kinds;—- and shall have the account always ready for the inspection - of any having interest, That to indemnify those persons for their , trouble, those who keep such memorandum regularly entered in a book, and can at the end of the season exhibit that account to the . Association, or their clerk, shall be intitled to receive Half a Crown . for every such entry, besides all expenses actually laid out in bring- ing those who may have no certificate, or an irregular one,, before a Magistrate, and in caring for the flock stopped until the Magi- strate's decision is known. 510, That Ferrymen and Constables who are put to trouble and expence in executing the business here alluded to. shall receive full indemnification for their time and trouble by applying to the Clerk - of the Association, and in case of their actually stopping a parcel; of sheep which shall be found to have been stolen, they shall re- cieve a reward of Twenty Guineas from . the Association if the par- cel exceeds Two Hundred Sheep or upwards, and so in proportion ; for a less parcel. 6u, That these resolutions be publslhed four different times in each of the four Edinburgh newspapers, at the distance of a week . from each publication this season, and renewed in the months of July and Auguft next, at the expence of the Members of this meet ing, and so many copies be printed here, and posted upon the diffe- rent public houses, and in the different Ferrymens houses within the Counties as may be Sufficient for that purpose, and a person or persons sent round to have that done immediately. The Meeting entered into several separate resolutions amongst themselves for the preservation of thtir property, and the more speedy detection of future depredations, which they thought unece- ' cessary to make public. but which notwithstanding is nor the less binding 0n them individually, and on those for whom they acted, and they give their unanimous approbation to the adoption of rhe .. above resolutions. These minutes, consisting of this and the two preceding pages are signed by each Member of rhe Meeting for themselves and those they act for, on this last page, and by the Preses and Clerk on this and the preceding pages.

EDINBURGH ADVERTISER for At the MICHAELMAS MEETING of the Freeholders JuStices of the Peace and Commissioners of Supply of the County of Perth, held at Perth, the second day of October, one thousand se- ven hundred and ninety- eight years, of which Meeting his Grace the DUKE of ATHOLWas, Preses, tHE following RESOLUTIONS, moved by ARCHIBALD CAMPBELL, Esq; of Clathick, and seconded by the Right Hon. the Earl of Kinnoul, were unanimously adopted, viz. Resolved, Thar contending, as we now are, for our existence as a nation, and for every thing dear to us as individuals it is the duty and interest of every inhabitant of this country to afford, with zeal and alacrity, all the pecuniary aid in his power, for the defence of the British Realm, and for counteracting the efforts of an ambi- tious, a cruel, and a rapacious enemy. 2Resolved, That in order that pecuniary aid may be afforded to the Executive Government, adequate to the important and pres- sing exigencies of the times, and in the most fair and equal manner possible for all descriptions of persons, it would be expedient that each should contribute, in proportion to his ability to do so, by a tax being imposed corresponding to the income of the several members of the State, upon such a plan, and with such variations, according to the nature and different kinds of income, and with such modifi- cations and regulations , as to the wisdom of the Legislature shall seem proper, 3d/, Resolved, That this Meeting, whilst they express their humble opinion on the subject, place compleat reliance on Parliament for adopting such measures as shall be calculated to raise, in the most just and expedient manner, the pecuniary supplies necessary for e- nabling us to preserve all that is dear to us as men and as Britons. At the same meeting, it was, upon the motion of Mr. Murray, younger or Ochtertyre, seconded by Mr. Rutherford of Glenda- vin, ( with only one dissenting voice), Resolved, That it is the opinion of this Meeting, that the law of Scotland with, respect to Bail, in the case of persons apprehended for crimes, has, by recent experience, in a variety of instances, been found to be defective. zJ, Resolved, That the Gentlemen who compose this Meeting, while on the one hand they regard, with anxious concern, what- ever respects the liberty of the subject, so. on the other hand, they conceive it highly necessary that effectual measures be taken for compelling persons accused of crimes, tending to endanger the ex- istence of the State, or disturbers of its peace, to stand trial for their offences, • 3d, resolved, That whereas, it having been found by experience, that the sums for which Bail was ordered to be taken in crimi- nal informations, by the Act of the Scottish Parliament, passed in the year 1701, Intituled, " An Act for preventing wrongous impri- sonments, and against undue delay in trials had in the course of twenty- three years from that period, become too small and dis- proportioned to the danger of the criminals escaping from the punishment appointed by law, the Legislature accordingly enabled, by the Statute 11th Geo. I. c. 16, § M passed in the year one thousand seven hundred and twenty- four, that from and after the 1st day of June, one thousand seven hundred and twenty five, it should be lawful for every Magistrate, Judge, or Court of Judica- ture within Scotland to enact double the sums for which Bail might be taken in pursuance of the foresaid act, one thousand se- ven hundred and one, if he, or they, upon the circumstanccs of the case, should think fit. ,4th, resolved, That it appears to this Meeting, that the sums specified by the statute 11th Geo. I. as the highest. which may be taken in bailable offences, have, in consequence of the change of circumstances which his taken place since the date of that enact- ment, in a period of upwards of seventy year's, again become insuf- ficient, and ineffectual for compelling persons accused of crimes to stand their trial; and that in consequence of this defect in the law, the ends of public justice have in several instances been defeated by the escape of persons who had committed, within the bounds of this county, offences of a very high and flagrant nature, against the Government, the execution of . the law, and against the public 1798" OCT 5. fife- sHiRE. Cupar 1798: iN a General Meeting of the Noblemen and Gcntlemen and other Heritors of the County of Fife, held here this day, the Sheriff of the County in the Chair. Tke Meeting being constituted. Re- solved unanimously, That the establishment of Corps of Volunteer Yeomanry Cavatry are highly necessary, and advantageous to the Country, not only as a protection to the public peace, and a proper support to the Civil Power, but also a judicious arrangement in the event of Foreign Invasion, and therefore merit the warmest appro- bation and greatest encouragement from the country at large: - Resolved, That the thanks of this Meeting be given to the numer- ous and respeCtable body of Noblemen, Gentlemen, Farmers, and others, embodied as Yeomanry Cavalry in this county for the pa- triotic zeal they, have displayed in stepping forward and taking an aCtive part- in these Corps. Resolved, That in opportunity be given to those Heritors whose situations will not admit of joining the Yeomanry in person, to contribute to the expence of the establishment ' The Meeting are therefore unanimously of opinion, that in order to defray the purchase ot Horses for Serjeants, and the expence of the necessary appointments requisite to equip the Yeomanry for immediate service a Voluntary Contribution should be proposed to the Heritors of the county, to be levied in proportion to their re- spective valued rents, and the Meeting beg leave to suggest that as. 6d. on the I.. 1oo Scots of valued rent, should be contributed by each heritor. But before this measure Is carried into effect, they are of Opinion that the subject should be considered at another Ge- neral Meeting, and intimation thereof should be given in the Edin- burgh Newspapers, that the absent Heritors may be acquainted with this proposal, and have an opportunity of declaring their sen- timents. Signed in name and by appointment of the Meeting, by CLAUD J. BOSWELL, P. Extracted from the Records of the County, by THOMAS HORSBRUGH. Clerk. In consequence of the above Resolutions, intimation is hereby given to the Heritors of the County, that the subject will again be brought before them for consideration on Friday the 12th October FIFE TOLLS. THE CLERK to the TRUSTEES for Making and Repairing the TURNPIKE ROADS in the County of FIKE, requests the attendance of the said Trustees at a General Meeting to be held within the County Room at Cupar, on Friday the 12th day of Oc- tober inst. at 12 o clock noon, when THE TOLLS AND DUTIES leviable at the several Tollgates within the said county, will be ex- posed to public roup, to be Let in Tack for one year, from and after the 11th day of November next.

Therefore it is the opinion of this meeting, that the sums for which Bail may be taken hy the Law, as it stands at present, ought now to be further augmented, or that such other remedy ought 10 be applied to the' evil of which they complain, as to the Legislature shall appear more adequate and proper. And for the purpose of bringing the subjeCt under the consideration of Parlia- ment, this meeting recommends to Col. Graham, Member for the county, to bring in a Bill for accomplishing the above objeCt, or to give, his support to any proper Bill which may be brought forward with that view; and they request their Preses to transmit a copy of these resolutions to the Right Hon the Lord Advocate for Scot- land, and appoint them to be published in the Edinburgh News- papers - At bAnff, the 28th day of September, 1798 years.

MAIL arrived this morning brings, in an article from ConstantinOple of tbe 25th of, August, - the important intelligence of the seizure of several French Frigates that had arrived at Rhodes; by which fri- gates the account of the victory obtained by Admiral neL- SON over the French Fleet, was confirmed. The frigates- had escaped into Rhodes ignorant of the commencement of hostilities between the PorTe and France. Accounts had also been received at constantinople, of the Retreat of BUONAPARTE from A position which he had taken • between Rosetta and Cairo, to Damietta, in consequence of the difficulties which, appeared to stand in the way of, his progress to Cairo. The accounts add, that in the neigh- bourhood of Damietta. he had been defeated by an army 0f 2o, 0oo Arabs chiefly cavalry. Measures of precaution and hostility, with respect to the are vigorously pursued by THE pORTE. With respect to the Army of BUONAPARTE, we have re- ceived the following intelligence had for some time maintained a position between Rosetta and Cairo ; but sud- denly retreated to Damietta. In the vicinity. of this town the French were attacked by an army of 20,000 Arabs, the greater part Cavalry, under the Command of MUSTAPHA BEY and two other Beys. An obstinate battle ensued, and the Arabs say, in their account transmitted to the PACHA of' Daaesaus, that they forced the enemy to retire with consi- derable loss, and that the French afterwards made a stand a few leagues frOm damietta. These accountS do not say why BUOnAPARTE, at firft, instead of advancing against the residence of the Bey, should have retreated so soon ; but this is ascribed partly to the numerous cavalry that covered the city of Cairo, partly to the inundation of the Nile", which at this time is at the highest, and partly to the difficulty which the French found in obtaining provisions where so many of the roads were laid under water. The POrTe has taken great offence at the Invasion of E- gypt by the french, and regards it as an act of open hostili- ty. It considers the project of buONAPARTE as very de- grading to its dignity, injurous to its Government, and contrary both to the claims it has to Egypt, and the relations which long existed between it AND the Beys WHO govern E- gypt in its name. The French charge d'affaires Citizen RUFFIN, and all those in employment under him, have in consequence been put under arresT and confined to their houses. The french resident here have been forbidden to wear the National Cockade in the streets and public places. They had indeed before laid aside the Cockade, for fear of being ill treated by the populace, who are violently incen- sed against them. The French Charge d'Affaires, in conf - quence of an intimation from the Porte, has likewise been - obliged to take down the insignia of the French Republic, which he had put over the door of his Hotel. Similar orders; have been sent to all the towns in which French Consuls or ' Vice- Consuls reside, as the Porte fears attemptS at revolu- tionary movements. Particular orders have likewise been sent to Jaffy AND Bucharest, relative to the French Consuls there, as the Porte believes a suspicious correspondence is carried on there with some Polish malcontents. Councils of State, and Conferences, between the Tur- kish and Foreign Ministers, especially those of England and Russia who have now great influence, are held almost daily.: The Austrian Internuncio has not yet been invited to these conferences. The utmost diligence is used in equipping our fleet for sea ; but it will now find no enemy to contend with. VIENNA, Sept. 11. Official accounts from Constantinople, which . were yester- dav brought by Couriers to the English and Russian envoys in this CITY, bring advice that Admiral NELSON had attacked- the French fleet before Alexandria, and partly burned and partly sunk almost the whole of it. Some ships which made their escape fell into the hands of the Turks, and met I Similar fate so that of this great French fleet scarcely a single transport is lost. The Turkish Merchants here have likewise received let- ters from Constantinople ( but of an earlier date than the above official dispatches), which mention that the Turkish nation is highly incensed against the French, and that the . populace have clamorously demanded that the French charge d'Affaires shall be sent to the prison of the Seven TOWERS. In the mean time orders have been given by the Porte, to arrest all the French Consuls, and detain all the French ships in the Turkish harbour. The embargo on all French property has been carried into execution, and the, ' Consul at jaffy has been the first arrested. The Turkish Merchants here have likewise received let- ters from Smyrna, which state that BUONAPARTE had ad- vanced with his army towards Grand Cairo, and published his Invitation to Liberty in tbe Arabic LANGUAGE ; but that the inhabitants had only been the more enraged against him, and that he had been forced to retreat. The EMPerOR has appointed the ARChDuKE CHArLES a FIELD MARSHAL oF the IMPERIAL ARMY.— The King of NAPLES has requested an Imperial General. The PRINCE of ORANGE, in case of a new rupture, is to command a corps in Italy. Several promotions have been made in the Imperial army ACTION IN SWITZERLAND. BASLE, Sept. 11. The inhabitants of the Canton of Underwald, determined , tO persist in their refusal of taking the oaths, intrenched them selves in very advantageous situation near Stantz, whereon the 9th inst. they were attacked by Gen. SCHAUENbOUrG with a 1arge train of artillery One body oF French crossed the lake, and landed near Stantz, and another marched over the mountains, by which means - the Insurgents were THE EIMN'BU'fl- GH A* DV£ ftTtS£- R; for surrounded ; thev however defended themselves with the most obstinate valour ; at length they were obliged to way, and all their artillery, ammunition, c. fell into the hands of the victors. Their loss is estimated at 15OO, ' be- sides wounded. The loss of the French is also very great. The town of Stantz was almost wholly destroyed. " The following is'Gen. SCHAUeNBOurg'S letter.

THE Honourable Captain CAPeL, of his Majesty's sloop Mutine, arrived this morning with dispatches from Rear- Admiral Sir HORATIO NELSON, K. B. to EVAN Nepean Esq; Secretary ot the Admiralty, of which the following are copies: 1 ' VANGUARD, Mouth of the Nile, S I R, Aug. 7, 1798. HEREWITH I have the honour to transmit you a copy of my letter to the Earl of ST. VINCENT, together with a line of battle of the English and French squadrons, also a list of killed and wounded. I have the pleasure to inform you, that eight of our ships have already top- gallant yards across, and ready for any service the others, with the prizes, will soon be ready for sea. In an event of this importance, I have thought it right to send Capt. CAPEL with a copy of my letter ( to the Commander in Chief) over land which I hope their Lordships will approve and beg leave to re- fer them to Capt. CAPEL, who IS a most excellent officer, and fully able to give every information; and I beg leave to re- commend him to their Lordships notice. I have the honour to be, & c,. FOREIGN EXCHANGES.

VANGUARD, off the Mouth of the My LORD, Nile, Aug. 3, 1798. ALMIGHTY GOD has blessed his Majesty's arms in the late battle, by a great victory over the Fleet of the enemy, whom I attacked at sun- set on the 1st of August off the mouth of the Nile. The enemy were moored in a strong line - of battle for defending the entrance of the Bay ( of Shoals),' flanked by numerous gun boats, four frigates, and a battery of guns and mortars on an island in their van but nothing could withstand the squadron your Lordship did me the ho- nour to place under my command. Their high state of discipline is well known to you, and with the Judgment of the Captains, together with their valour and that of the Of- ficers and men of every description, it was absolutely irre- sistible. Could any thing from my pen add to the characters of the Captains, I would write it with pleasure, but that is imposS- ble. I have to regret the loss of Capt. Westcott of the Ma- jestic, who was killed early in the action ; but the ship was continued to be so well fought by her First Lieutenant, Mr. Cuthbert, that I have given him an order to command her till your Lordship's pleasure is known. The ships of the enemy, all but their two- rear ships, are neatly dismasted, and those two, with two frigates, I am sorry to say, made their escape ; nor was it, I assure you, in my power to prevent them. Capt. Hood most handsomely endeavoured to do it, but I had no ship in a condition to sup- port the Zealous, and I was obliged to call her in. The support and assistance I have received from Captain Berry cannot be sufficiently expressed. 1 was wounded in the head, and obliged to be carried off the deck, but the service suffered no loss by that event. Capt. Berry was ful- ly equal to the important service then going on, and to bim I must beg leave to refer you for every information relative of this victory. He will present you with the Flag of the Second in Command, that of the Commander in Chief be- ing burnt in the L'Orient.

So rejoiced were the ARABS at this glorious victory, which thOusands witnessled from the shore, that they illuminated the whole coast for several miles, for three successive nights. BUONAPARTE was at Cairo, completely at variance with, all his officers, who are discontent with the Expedition. The Soldiers are all sickly, and poisoned with the water of the country. The GRAND SEIGNIOR is making every effort to collect a Force to cut off Supplies. BUONAPARTE'S Dispatches were taken. It is not the least important part of the news, to know that Gen. BUONAPARTE'S dispatches have been doubly in- tercepted. His first dispatch, dated from Alexandria, on the 8th of July, was sent to France by an avise, which was taken by a Turkish vessel, before the French had time to throw the dispatches over- board; the second dispatch was taken by Admiral NELSON'S cruizers. It is thought that our Government is by this time in complete possession of all the further projects of the French in Egypt. A bye boat from Hamburgh landed three Gentlemen at Lowestoffe, on Monday afternoon at five o'clock, who say, that before they left that place, news had arrived from Con- stantinople and which seemed to be credited, that BUON- APARTE, after being permitted to land and begin his march, had been suddenly attacked by a very numerous body of the natives; that Ten Thousand men were killed on the spot,- and BUONAPARTE and the remainder of his army all made prisoners. Private accounts received from France, brought by a cap- tured ship, state, that the Paris Papers have announced the death of BUONAPARTE in Egypt, in addition to the defeat of Admiral BRUYES. The following is the account: Capt. TALBOT of the Eurydice, took a Frenchman out of a prize which he had discovered foundering at sea, who informed him, that on the 18th ult. near Brest, two French line- of- battle ships, and 11 frigates, passed the vessel he was taken in, under English colours, steering for the coast of Ireland; they Had troops on board, but what number he could not tell. He further gave information, that the French papers had announced the after landing in Egypt. death of BUONAPARTE BRITISH Navy. DISTRIBUTION OF THE BRITISH NAVAL FORCE 1798. if it IRELAND. , . DUBLIN, Sept. 29 " His Excellency the Marquis of CORNWALLIS has found, that the Lenient System he had adopted has, in many in- stances been abused and prostituted to the worst purposes several of the Rebels who had been pardoned, and to whom protections had been granted, having, the first opportunity . afterwards, returned to their rebellious practices, and com- mitted the most horrid cruelties on his Majesty's Loyal Sub- jects, and on the Protestants. His Excellency has been under the necessity of adopting more vigorous measures a- gainst the Insurgents, and has given the following very firm and decided answer to an address from the HOSIER COM - PANY on this subject. " Gentlemen— When the force of his Majesty's arms had crushed the desperate efforts of rebellion, I was led to hope that the extension of the Royal Mercy to the deluded would have had universal operation in restoring public peace, and reviving a general spirit of loyalty. " I have been, however, concerned to find, that in some parts of the kingdom, the clemency of our Sovereign has failed, and I am under the disagreeable necessity of observ- ing, that when lenient measures are found to have no effect it will become necessary to punish severlly those hardened cri- minals who have shewn that they can not be reclaimed by mercy, " I request you will exCept my most cordial acknowledge, ments for your warm expressions Of approbation and regard. CORNWALLIS." " The outrages of the wandering rebels in the county of Wexford, have unhappily extended to the neighbouring counties. A party of these villains marched on Tuesday evening last through the little village of Ballymurphy into the lower part of the county of Carlow, and committed se- veral robberies in- their passage they proceeded through the barony of St. Mullins to the populous town of Graige- namanagh, in the county of Kilkenny, which they reached about one o'clock on Wednesday morning, and with a most incredible audacity broke into the house of a shopkeeper of the town named Singles, whpm they dragged out into the street and massacred before his own door, and having done so they departed with the plunder of his house without meet- ing the least interruption. We hear, however, with infinity gratification, that this band of murderers were met on their route by a party of the army, who cut them entirely to pieces. " Singles was a yeoman, and had been peculiarly active in the pursuit of an Hessian deserter, who had been appre- hended and executed at Kilkenny a few days before. " By letter's from New- Ross, we have been informed of a horrid plot discovered there, which had no less an object than, a general massacre of all the Protestants of that town, to have taken place yesterday ; but the design having been' fortunately imparted to one of the County of Dublin Militia the honest soldier instantly seized the conspirator who wished to seduce him, and by dragging him before his officer, ob- tained such a chain of information as to bring the leaders under the arm of justice they were principally old and confidential servants of persons in the town. " The town of Coolgraney, county of Wexford, has been burned by a party of rebels from the neighbouring mountains. " Letters from Cork mention, that at the Assizes there, a desperado named Casey was tried, and found guilty of con- spiring to murder Dr. Harding, one of the present High Sheriffs of the city of Cork, a respectable gentleman, whose exertions have been great in counteracting the machinations of Traitors and Seditious Incendiaries. This criminal re- ceived sentence to be executed yesterday. He confessed that Sweeny, one of the traitors here in prison, who has signed with others for transportation, was a principal in this horrid conspiracy, and. accompanied Casey to the place where it was designed to assassinate Dr. Harding, to prevent any re- luctance occurring to his accomplice, that was tO be the perpetrator. " The insurgents in the county of Kildare, besides burn- ing the house of Mr. Rawson, whose brother was lately murdered by one of these desperadoes in that quarter, have committed many other atrocities upon houses in the same neighbourhood. Those of the respectable family of the Manders', are amongst those they wreaked their vengeance on.; and these persons have thus suffered, bccause they Were Protestants from Narraghmore to Athy, we hear, the insurgents have in many places sent letters to persons of the sect before mentioned, to abandon their dwellings, other- wise they may expect to be massacred. " Last week, the house of a woman of the name of Man- ders, at Narrow Water, in the county of Kildare. was at- tacked by some Rebels in that quarter, and herself, two nieces and a servant maid, were inhumanly murdered. The servant met her death for intreating them not to murder her mistress, upon which they shot the poor creature through the head. " Every day we hear of new acts of atrocity that are af- flicting. After the dispersion of the Militia on the first check of Gen. LAKE, the outrages on the helpless and innocent inhabitants of the country were dreadful. A beautiful young Lady, the daughter of a clergyman at Enniscorthy. was wantonly shot through the heart, as she was standing in con- versation with her father. " It is supposed the ruffian tempted by her ear- rings." " On Wednesday night last, three brothers of the name Byrne, respectable farmers, near Roundwood in the county of Wicklow. were set upon bv a band of ruffians, and deprived of life with attending Circumstances of great barbarity. Can nothing be done to put an end to this de- moniac system which and disgraCes the country ?— or is Ireland, one way or other, ever fated to be a scene of terror and personal insecurity. even the terrible experiment of open warfare is more tolerable to the Country than the hell- born fiend- like war of assassination, which if longer car- ried on will confirm to the Irish name in indelible disgrace and abhorrece all the world.— Dub. Ev. Post. "- On Wednesday evening so early as seven ' o'clock, a Banditti entered the houfe or Alderman TRuelocK, at Sim- mon's Court, and, after locking the female part of the fa- mily in a lower apartment, proceeded upstairs into the Al- derman's Chamber, and, having obliged him to give them the keys of his desk, took therefrom cash and bank notes, as we understand, to the amount of 8ol'. and upwards. " It is a fact that the LORD LIEUTENANT was obliged to accommodate the seven French- Generals, who were per- mined to visit Dublin, with 2oo guineas ( they asked for four) as the Rebels had improved on the French plan of Equality, and robbed them not only of their valuables, but even their wearing apparel, and portmanteaus. " The French prisoners taken at Kilalla, a few days ago, with the rebels, were yesterday brought up to town, They consist of six officers, and about 50 privates. The former were lodged in apartments at Corbet's Hotel, in Capel street. These were artfully left behind at Kilalla, by General HUM- BERT, to keep THAT plaCe open for the reception of any other French force that might come in there by chance ; but in this design, like the others upon this country, they, have been frustrated. " The crops of barley in Ireland have turned out this year remarKably abundant, and of a very good quality. " Notwithstanding that the county of Wexford had been the chief seat of ' rebellion in the province of Leinster, and consequently was liable to numberless depredations and other calamites, yet we are pleased to find, that in the return qf the Average prices of grain from the different parts of the • country to the week ending the 15th, wheat was cheaper at the town of Wexford than at any other city, or town of Ire- land, being only 22s. 6d. the barrel— the middle price of oats at the same market being but 9s. ad. the barrel, though barley is 14s. which is dearer than in some other parts of tHe kingdom. " . ' " On Friday last John Richardson, late surgeon in the Antrim militia, and Charles Montgemery, of Cart, two persons for whom a reward Of 5ol. each was offered for their apprehension, were brought in here prisoners, and, lodged in the DonegAll Arms." BALLINA, Sept. 24. " We have been here for some time in the greatest dread of being destoyed by the Rebels : but now, thank God, we are extricated from those fears. A sore defeat has been given to the deluded wretches, by his Majesty's army, in which above 1000 of them were killed between this place and Foxford. In this vicinity they had committed great depredation ; on entering houses, they first drank any wine . they could get, then destroyed the furniture, and even the gardens, and afterwards carried off all plunder that was por- table, to Kilalla.. They were going to hang Dr. Colonel, whole house they plundered. Some of the French who late- ly landed at Kilalla were found among them, and are now prisoners." , CORK, Sept. | This day Denis Casey was executed at Galowsgreen pursuant to his sentence, for ' conspiring to murder Doctor Harding our present worthy Sheriff- He died a melancholy instance of youthful depravity, he was under 20 years of age."

The Governor of the State ( Henry) has in consequence issued a proclamation, offering a free pardon to any accomplice who shall make known the principals in the villany. On the 18th inst. an elegant stand of Colours was pre- sented by two Young Ladies to the Corps of NEW YORK INDEPENDENT VOLUNTEERS, accompanied with the follow- ing letter : " SIR, ; " Impressed with the highest opinion of the patriotism, federalism, and military spirit of the New York Inderpendent Volunteers, we presume to evince it by offering for their acceptance the Colours which ' accompany this ; assured that they will do their utmost to prevent their ever adding to the trophies of Jacobinism and Infidelity, E..

The number of acres under Wheat is smaller than usual; but the quality is fine, and the weight will be 31b. per bushel above the growth- of last season.— The quality of Barley is weighty and good, and promises to malt- pleasantly.— Oats may. be reckoned a; pretty good produce, are fine and weighty.— Beans, as Well as Pease, are more abundant than we have known for many years. • They have been saved in fine order, and their quaility and conditions will be excellent. Samples of New Wheat and Barley hive appeared in our market, the former sold at aos. and 21s. per boll, and the Barley at 15s. in the course of a week or two, we shall expert further and' considerable supplies ; but at present the farmers consider themselves more valuably employed in their Wheat Grounds, than to engage in extensive threshings."

Fergusson, Bonnetmakers Andrew Wood, Surgeons Patrick Cunningham, Goldsmiths •• - Thomas Kennedy, Furriers George Gregory, Hammermen Andrew Irvine, Masons Andrew Hutcheson, Fleshers William Ross, Shoemakers Ebenezer Gairdner, Weavers We embrace with pleasure this opportunity of offering our re- newed testimony to the meritorious public conduct of PROVOST ELDER, and the Gentlemen associated with him in the Magistra- ey. It is saying much, and it is not saying too much, to add, that he vacates the Civic Chair with undiminished claims to that public esteem and gratitude which he so honourably acquired, when the duties of the Chief Magistrate were of a more difficult and trying nature than they have been for some years past. After the Election Tuesday Sir JAMES STIRLING ad- dressed the Magistrates in the following speech :— GENTLEMEN, Being now called for the third time to the office of Chief Ma- gistrate in this my native city, your own feelings will do me the justice to believe me sincere, whcn I say that I am most deeply im- pressed with the sense of that very distinguished honour which the voice of my fellow citizens has conferred upon me nor will they give me less credit; when I add, that no small part of this satis- faction arises In my breast from the consideration of being once more thus intimately connected with a Society of Gentlemen from whose intercourse in private life I have derived as much pleasure and satisfaction, as I have received counsel and support from their abilities in the dischargc of my public duties. The past experience of that friendship and assistance is a pledge to me on which I api confident I may firmly rely for a like support in those on which I am now about to enter : And to you, Gentlemen, I trust it will carry this assurance, that if in former times my conduct has been such as to merit your approbation, I shall thence be more strongly stimulated to deserve in future your favour' and the good opinion of my fellow citizens. . Yet, while the retrospect of times part is in general, to my mind, attended with feelings of the highest satisfaction, I should diffem- ble with you, were I not to own that some recent circumstances have affected me with the. most sincere regret. You will perceive I allude to these unfortunate divisions which lately existed in the Council of this city. I will not here enter into particulars on this painful subject; I wish it to be for ever buried in oblivion ; I trust it will be so, and that a cordial union will take place, arid a per- fect co- operation in that honourable, open, and steady plan of po- litical conduct which has of late years distingUished the Magistracy of the capital of Scotland. From henceforth, then, let the poli- tics of the City of Edinburgh be those of the State and of the Country alone. So shall our City deserve its honourable distinction of a Metropolis, and its Magistrates the character of true patriots and friends to Britain and its Glorious Constitution. In this character, which I shall ever strive to deserve, I feel my- self called upon to express, in this public manner, the strong sense I entertain of the very high merits of that Right Honourable Per- son by whom this city is represented in Parliament; to acknow- ledge the weight of those obligations for which, amidst the most important national services rendered to the British Empire at large, we in a particular manner stand indebted to him ; and to profess a sentiment, in which every true Scotsman will most cordially join me that the interests of the city of Edinburgh never were deposited in the hands of an abler or more upright Statesman, nor ever can be trusted to one whose high public character could confer more honour, or his abilities more advantage, on the community whom he representS. Let this tribute be paid in my name to a Gentle- man for whom individually I entertain the most sincere respect, and whom publicly I regard as a great ornament to his country. Entering on a new course of official duty, I know that I speak the general sense of all my brethren in office, when, in my own name and in theirs, I here offer our united thanks to lodr most worthy predecessors in office, and in a more particular manner to our late most able and respectable Chief Magirtrate, who has so often filled that important station, with equal honour to himself and benefit to the community. In retiring from office, he has the pleasing reflection, that while his public merits stand recorded in the annals of this city and the Country at large, he carries with him the respect and esteem of all his fellow citizens. To his pri- vate virtues as a man, and as a friend, experienced In an acquaint- ance of near thirty years Continuance, I am free to say that I stand indebted for no small part of the satisfaction I have enjoyed in lige. It were superfluous in me, whose political principles have been evinced by the uniform tenor of my conduct, to enlarge here in any general professions of loyalty to our moSt excellent Sovereign, S I or of attachment to the best Constitution. Let me not con- clude however, without reminding you of the gratitude we oWe to the Supreme Disposer of all events for the singular blessings which this favoured island is suffered to enjoy, whilst a great part Of Eu- rope is now groaning under the most unheard of tyranny and op- pression, the confluence of the introduction of wild principles of anarchy and insubordination, disguised under the imposing names of liberty and equality of rights. From the contagion, of such principles, from the efforts of their partisans, ardent in the propagation of doctrines which strike at the foundation of civil ciety, I trust that Almighty Providence will long preserve these happy kingdoms. May every day convince us mere and more of the substantial blessings of which we are at present possessed ; and in order that we may preserve them to ourselves, and transmit them to our latest posterity, may all true sons of Britain remember, that, in these days of danger, it is equally their duty to guard against the Insidious machinations of domestic treason, and to repel the ag- gression of a foreign foe.

JOHN SINCLAIR, West Bow, Edinburgh, HAS got to hand from England, a small quantity of the very best WHITE WHEAT for SEED, which, he can recom- mend to his Friends and the Public.

B.— Will have in a day or two some very fine WINTER TARES and RYE. 3 2} The following is a striking proof of the increase of Com- merce and Manufactures upon the Clyde. The ferry across the Clyde at Renfrew was let in tack for nineteen years; at therein of fourteen pounds ten shillings-, to which ten pounds. was afterwards added for a house. The lease having expir- ed, it has been now let in lack, by auction at the amazing rent of a hundred and seventy- two p0unds yearly, being seven times the former rent.. ' The fruit of Milton upon Clyde was sold by auction this season at the astonishing sum of a hundred and eighty pounds. In the rental Of Milton, the whole orchards, containing twenty English acres were only valued, by the present pro- prietor, at thirteen shillings and sixpence the English acre, of which the fruit WAS valued at six shillings and ninepence the acre, and the under crops of barley and potatoes at six shillings and ninepence the acre also ; being less than seven pounds for the whole fruit on the estate. . So that the pricer of the fruit this season is more than twenty- five times the. a- mount of the rental put upon it by Mr. Brisbane and this low rental was valued by the proprietor at less than twenty- one years purchase. In another point of view, it is a re- markable fact, that in making up a proven judicial rental of this office, upwards of twenty- one years ago, after deduc- ing public burdens, the ancient clear yearly rent of the sur- face was declared by the Lords to be three hundred and six- ty seven pounds, besides the mines and minerals; and the salmon cruives in the river Clyde, together with Clyde's mill, and the command of that great river for machinery, the arable lands, and mill orchard, were all lumped together by the Lords of Session at the very moderate valuation of ten guineas. From the well known lowness of a judicial rental at all times, the great improvement which has already- taken place in that long series of years in those five parishes of clydesdale, which are said to be the richest coal and lime county in Europe, and the incalculable effect which such a profusion of coal, lime, and waterfalls, must have in increas- ing the surface value, supposing the value of lands on the banks of the Clyde in the great coal and lime county between Edinburgh and Glasgow, to be only triple the ancient judi- cial rental made up by the Lords, the clear yearly value of the surface alone, in this view, is now upwards of eleven hundred pounds;- which, at TWENTY- ONE YEARS PURCHASE, is TWENTY- THREE THOUSAND POUNDS, besides the mines and minerals, the richness of which is well known to professional men, and will best ap- pear by the canal surveys. But the proprietor has never yet valued both lands and minerals, and the valuable privilege of a mill- dam upon one or the falls of the Clyde, at more than twenty- four thousand guineas. The Glasgow estate is disposed of by private bargain ia tack for two hundred years, upon terms singularly advanta- geous to the tenant, who will clear a very large sum by the bargain. This fact is now generally known in Glasgow. PEEBLES- SHIRE ASSESSED TAXES.

ALL and Whole the LANDS of EASTER BOLD and SCROG- BANK, lying in the parish of Traquair, and county of Pee- bles. This is a beautiful compact estate. It gives a qualification a freeholder in the county upon the valued rent, and holds all of the Crown. The present real rent, which is Sterling, With twelve kain hens, and the carriage of twelve loads of coals, will, ac cording to every estimate, nearly double at the expiry of the current lease, which is at no considerable distance. The whole estate con- tains 1164 acres 2 roods Scots measure, whereof about 100 acres al- ready are, or soon will be improved into arable land, consisting ge- nerally of rich holm, and all of a fine dry, early soil, well calculated for every kind of crop, and particularly the turnip husbandry. This division is mostly flat ground, stretching for a great length along the banks of the Tweed, from which it is prevented from sustaining any damage by its natural situation, without being at hardly any ex- pence. The rest of the estate, containing 964 acres 2 roods, is im mediately contiguous, rises higher, and forms a most convenient sheep walk, capable of holding at least forty score and many parts of it are fit for Hills or other plantations. Perhaps more delightful situations for a house and place than upon the haugh ground, at some distance from the sheep pasture, can not be figured, as they would command all the natural and rural beauties of the- country up and down the river for a great distance on both sides, which are celebrated as being uncommon. For the encouragement of purchasers the upset price will only be 5100l Sterling; and for particulars apply to Andrew Steuart, jun writer to the signet, who has power to conclude a private bargain betwixt and the day of sale.
