VOL. LXXI. THE No. 3703. EDINBURGH ADVERT! From FRIDAY JUNE 21, to TUESDAY JUNE 25, 1799. r SATURDAYS POST. From the LONDON PAPERS, June 19. LONDON, v HE following extraCt from the » Log Book of his Majefty's ( hip Cormorant, ferves to correal feveral errors that have been publifhed with refpeCt to dates ; its authenticity may be relied upon : Sunday, May 5.— Eighteen fail of French line- of- battle Ihips palled the Gut of Gibraltar.— Same day. Five fail of Spanifh Ihips of the line feen off Gibraltar. Sunday, May 13— Seventeen fail of the line, un- der Earl ST. VINCENT, palled the Gut of Gi- braltar. Monday, May 13.— The Cormorant fell in with the Englijh fleet, eight leagues to the eaftward of Cape de Gal, having a fine breeze. Friday, May 17.— Seventeen fail of Spanijh line- of- battle Ihips parted Gibraltar for the Straits. Sunday, May 19.— Five fail of the line, under Rear- Admiral WHITSHED, palled Gibraltar, for the Straits. Tuetday, June 4.— The Cormorant oke Sir ALAN GARDNER, olf Cape Finifierre, with ftxteen fail of the line ; and, in confequence of the Cormo- rant's information, the Admiral crowded a prefs of fail, to join Earl ST. VINCENT. The following is a correct ldt of the Britifo Naval Force in ' he Mediterranean :— Admiral Lord ST. VINCENT, 21 fail of the line, Rear- Admiral WHITSHED 5 Rear- Admiral LORD NELSON 15 Admiral Sir ALAN GARDNER 16 Total 57 Befides frigates and lmaller veffels, and number of Ruffian, Turkifh, and Portugueze fhips of war, the whole of which are no doubt by this time united, Lord ST. VINCENT having fent orders to Malta, Palermo, and Alexan- dria, for the feveral fquadrons to join him at Minorca. Government are faid to have received within thefe few days, authentic intelligence of the organization of a new La Vendee in the Wef- tern Departments of France. The Confcripts in that part of the Republic having r nil very generally refufed to march, but had fled in great numbers with their arms, and joined the infurgents in the woods and defiles, who are faid to occupy a chain of polls, extending from the Mouth of" the Seine ro the Loire. The representation of an Opera which har- monizes the language of Royalifm, has given fuch alarm to the Government, that it has been thought neceflary to fupprefs it, and a motion was carried in the Council of Five Hundred fjr that purpofe. The Opera, which, in their prefent circumjlances, the Diredory found it neceflkry to fupprefs, was the TRIUMPH of the EMPEROR. ADRIAN— and the following was the paflage which was found moft fault with, as a fuppofed allufion to the Emperor of Germany— " Ceefar regne fur nbus, toujours grand, toujours " jufte, " £ t que ton front Augufte s'aecoutoume aux lauriers facres —" " Cxfar, always great and always juft, reigns over us, his brow encircled with the fac- red laurels of the conquerors." The Choiians have again appeared, and the Direflory is befet with denunciations. Everv thing announces fome new change about to take place, the period of which is not remote. The prefent Government of France has molt to fear on the Frontiers of Switzerland, they being the leaft guarded with ftrong polts, and from whence the. Allies can molt eafily pe retrate, as far- es f. yons, a city where. the dif- pofitions of the inhabitants againft the Direlh, ry are troll inveterate, and molt to be dread- ed, on account cf its great population, and its geographical pofition, which opens a direCt line of communication between the Southern Provinces and the Capital.— Hence the Go- vernment collets all its force towards Swit- zerland, forms a Camp between Lyons and Geneva, and fends its reinforcements to Maf- fria, rather than to Moreau, whofe retreat into Provence prefents more diftant dangers. The ABBE SIEYES, the new French Direc- tor, throughout the whole of his political en-. reer, has ftiewn himfelf to be a complete dif- ciple of the famous Vicar of Bray, having con trived, in all reigt! s, to keep in with the pre- vailing power. As long as the Monarchical regime continued, he not only profeffed him- lelf warmly attached to a Kingly Government, but even entered the field of literary conteft againft To? n Paine, to prove its great perfec- tion, and vaft fuperiority orer any Republican fvftem that could be devifed ; but finding the Regicide faClion fhortlv after predominate in the country, lie affeCled to fee things in an en- tire new light, and has ever fince been the creature of the party whofe power appeared the ftrongeft in the State. From a ftatement of the French Finances, it appears that the fum provided for of the expences for the 7th year, amounts to Two Hundred and Ninety- eight Millions, Four Hundred and Thirty- fix Thoufand, One Hun- dred and Thirty- nine Livres. A fum amount- ing to verv nearly Twelve Millions and a Half Sterling. This deficit is not calculated upon the aCtual produce of the French Taxes, but upon the funis voted ; when the real a- mount of thefe fums is known, it is probable that the deficiency will be found to be ftill greater. The crofling of Mount Cenis by the French and ftalian fugitives from Italy was the moft burlefque aflemblage that ever was feen. Di' reflors, Legiflators, with their wives, their concubines, and their little ones, fled with what- ever they could carry. A French CommifTary defcribes the avidity with which they de- vouied his eggs on the top of the Alps, but the grand objeCt with every one was to fave his bacon 1 Reprefentations to Government are abou' to be made by the merchants trading to the Bal tic, refpeCting the hofls of privateers in the ports of Norway, which greatly annoy out Commerce. Into one port only, fince the laft three years, no lefs than 250 Bririfh fhips have been carried. The whote number of veffels captured during this period, by the enemy, whofind every kind of afliftance andencourage- ment from tbe Norwegians, is incredible, and calls aloud for fome decifive meafure to protect fo valuable a part of our commerce. The re- fonrces which the enemy draw from: hefe ptizes are of the greateft advantage to them. The Report from the Secret Commitee of the Houfe of Lords refpeCting treafonable prac- tices has been made. It is founded upon the fime evidence, and enforces the fame conclu- fions, which are contained in the more ample and detailed Report of the Houfe of Common: on the fame fubj- Ct. From two papers ed, it appears that the Corr.- fpor. ding Sochly .. .. . „ Vy had maintained a correfpondeiice with many A the principal towns in England and Scotland, and that there were Societies of the fame na- ture in molt of the great towns of this country. There is no new information in the Report. The Scots Towns in which there were Cor- refponding Societies, are ftated in the Repoi to he Edinburgh, Glafgow, Perth, Dundee,. Paifley, Berwick, Jedburgh, Kilmarnock, and Stranraer. The Report adds, that it is be- lieved there are feveral others. Laft week a fervant of Mr. Shenitone, of Slandeford, near Brewood, having carelefsly brought forne fire near his hay- itacks, for the purpofe of burning weeds, it caught the ftacks. and they were all foon in flames, and moft o: them burnt. MONDAY'S POST. From th'e LONDON PAPERS, ' June ar. L O N D O N. HOUSE OF COMMONS.- IVednefday, June 19. MR. DOUGLAS made a motion to continue the Scots Difli'dery laws with amend- ments, and a bill was ordered in. DUKE OF RICHMOND'S DUTY ON COALS. Mr. Pitt moved for a copy of the grant of King Charles II. to the Duke. of Richmond and his heirs, of a duty of is. per chaldron on coals carried coaftwife from the River Tyne.— Or- dered. Several inftruCtiorrs propofed by Mr. Pitt being agreed to, the. Houfe refolved - hn: Lords of the Treafurv fhouid be author fed to con'raCt with the Duke of Richmond for rh redemption of his duties upon coals, and to grant him in lieu thereof a yeatlv fum out of Confolidated Fund, not exceeding the ave rage produce upon 10 years preceding the jih of April 1799. in a Committee on the Judges Salaries Bill. Mr. Tiemey wifhed to know whether the fala- ries~ were. to be exclufive of all expences ? : Mr. Pitt replied that they were not, for the Judges would Itill have to defray the . expences at'ending the Circuits. Mr. Tierney then declared that he had not the fmalleft objection to make as to their a- mount. In a Committee of Ways and Means voted an additional iflue of 3 millions of Exchequer Bills.— Adjourned. The following outward bound Eafl India Ships failed on Wednefday evening, under convoy of the Madras man of war, cf 54 guns, viz.— Duke of Buccleuch, HindoJlan. Hope, Abergavenny, Charlton, IVoodford, A, J, Albion, Warley, Britannia, and Eliza Ann, extra fhips, Regulus for the Cape. The Abbe Sieyes, on being inftalled a Mem- ber of the French Directory, fwore hatred to all Kings, although he had but a few days be- fore paid his moft humble devoirs to his MA- JESTY of PRUSSIA, and was at the time load- ed with. the high favours and brilliant prefents of that Monarch. The virulent animadverfions on all the Allied Powers, contained in the proclamation of the Council of Five Hundred to the French people, laft ADVERTISER,) are extremely applicable to thenifelves, and, without that ap- plication, have no truth in them; whilft the advice they give, and the vigilance they re- commend, for fubduing a " favage Conque- ror," are fuch as there is no little doubt of being turned, with effeCt, againft the Great Nation. EAST - INDIA HOUSE. Yelterday a General Court of Proprietors of Eaft India Stock was held at the Company's Houfe.— The Dividend for the lalt half year was declaied at per cent. The CHAIRMAN ftated, that the Direflors had complimented Lord NELSON with the fum of TEN THOUSAND POUNDS in confequence of his glorious condudl at the battle of the NILE. A penfion to the wido v of Mr. EDWARD HAY, late a Member of the Board of Trade, and many years Secretary to the Government General of Bengal, of 300I was agreed to. MR. DAVID SCOTT. The Court pioceeded to the confideration of the Papers refpedling Illicit Trade. Mr. David Scott faid, he would not ( loop to anything like recrimination againft his accufcrs; he only tame there to defend - himfelf, and he thought the propereft ftep he could take, was to call on his conftituents to determine the queftion concerning his character. Mr. ChiJbolm faid, he had read over all the printed papers, in which he not only aid not fee any thing that could jullify the charges againft r , .0 vid - ir- ft but was convinced that the pa- pers were fufficient to acquit him thoroughly; he concluded by moving, " That it does not appear to the fatisfadlion of this Court, from the papers printed for their Con- ftituents, that it was neceflary to include the name of David : eott, fen. in any Ei'l of Dif overy, but. as the Court of Directors have thought proper, at the requeft of Air. • Scott himfelf ( although not confiftent with, the refolution of the laft General Court) to prppare a Bill, including his name, and to fubmit the fame to his Majefly's Attorney- Ge- neral,: this Court do acquiefce therein. But they think it incumbent upon them to declare, that they do . not fee, from thefe . papers, : the fmalleft reafon to iufpect Mr. Scot of having betrayed any confidential knowledge which he poftclted Member of the Secret- Committee, or any part of his duty, as a Diiedlor of this Company, or of hav- ing any perfonal knowledge of the fhip Helfnger. nor of tranfadtions relative to the trade of the Houfe of D. Scott, Jun. & Co. and that they entirely concur with* the Court of Directors in acquitting him of all peifbnal imputation." Mr. Lujhington faid, he role to fecond t! i motion, although he did not think it went far enough ; becauie he conceived there was n- o. ground whatever for filing a bill ef. difcovery againft Mr. Scott. He understood the charges againft this gen- tleman to be thofe of his having ( as a partner in the houfe of David Seoit, jun. and Co ) " carried on an illicit trade to the Eaft Indies, by fending out Englifh goods which were firft carri . d to Copenha- gen, and from thence fent to India as Danilh pro- perty. That he had given fecret intelligence of an intended expedition againft Manilla to the Spa- niards, who were at war with this country; and alfo fupplied them with goods and ftores. It did not appear from the papers, that there was a fingle adt imputed to. the houfe of David Scjtt and Co. but adis of agency ; which it was the bufinefs of the Government to encourage, in order that the manufactures of the country might be exported to the greateft extent poflible.: If this, therefore was the fadt, on what ground could the Houfe he charged with carrying on an illicit trade,. when the parties were not owners but agents, aCting for pfrfons at Copenhagen ? There was only one perlbn on whofe evidence the whole of thofe charges were founded. This was the man who failed iu the fliip, and who had falfely charged the Captain with murder, hecaufe he r^ fuled to give him a lum of money. After- the fhip in quellion had been carried into Manilla by the Spaniards,-^ this man firft faid that the caigo was Danifh property ; he afterwards fwore it was Brltijb, and belonged to- D. SCOTT and Co. Every circumft& nce went to. fhow that this was a perjured man ; yet. he was the only evidence againft Mr, • cott. With refpcCt to the charge of communi- cating intelligence to the enemy, it was admitted in the papers betore the Court that the Captain of the ( hip had picked up an Englijb Newfpaper fume- where, in which it was ftated that an expedition was preparing againft Manilla. It was neceflary that the Court 011 that day Ihould not only acquit - Mr. Scott, but annihilate all the proceedings againft him. lt muft ftrike the Attorney General, who intended to file a bill of difcovery, that an agent was not anfwerable for the future deftination of goods. Mr. Elphinjlone faid, that no man in- this country could adt a. an agent in lending out property that was intended for the Eaf indies ; nor could he law- fully fend goods to any other country, knowing that they were afterwards to be fent to the Eaft Indies. This would be found to be the opinion of the firlt - lawyers in this country. After lome debate the motion was put, and car- ried unanimoully. Mr David Scott then declared, that although before this decifron he l ad felt himlelf perfeflly at eafe in his own mind, yet the juftice which the Court had done to his character and injured repu- tation, made an impreflion on him which he Ihcul. l never forget..

FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE E XT R A OR DINAR T, SATURDAY, June 22. Downing Street, June 21, 1799. A DISPATCH, of which the following is a ii copy, has been received from Lieutenant ' Colonel ROBERT CRAUFURD, bv the Right Hon. Lord GRENVILLE, his M^ jefty's Princi- pal Secretary of State for the Foreign Depar: ment: MY LORD. ZURICH, June 7, 1799. I HAVE the honour to inform your Lordfhip, • that, in eonfequence of a very fevere aCtion which rook place on rhe 4th inft. MassENA has been obliged to abandon his entrenched camp before this place* and that the Anftrians took pofleffion cf the town yefterday afternoon. In my difpatch of the 31ft ultimo, I had the honour to acquaint your Lordfhip that after the affair of Winterthur the enemy retreated be- hind the Glat. In the fubfequent days th right wing of rhe ARCHDUKE'S Army under Gen. Nauendorff, advanced towards Bnelacb, she centre of Prince REUSS'S column towards Khten, and Gen. Hotze's to Bafferfdo'j)'. In order to threaten the enemy's right flank and in hopes of thereby inducing him to quit the pofition of Zurich, ( the real ftrengrh of which was not known,) Gen. Zellachich was fent with a column round the Greifienfee, and afterwards advanced towards Zurich, in con- nexion with another part of General Hotze's corps, which croffed the Glat below Greifin- Jje, but confiderably to the enemy's right. As th - fe demonltra'ions, however, were without effect, an attack was determined upon. Between the Glat and Limmat is a conside- rable chain of hills, running nearly parallel to thefe rivers, and covered in moft parts with thick woods. On this ridge, jult in the front of Zurich, MASSENA had chofen 9. moft excellent and not very extenfive petition, which for feveral weeks paft he had Caufed to be ftreng'hened by numero'u* entrenchments and in which, a ter the affair of Winterthur, he coiledted a confiderable part of the army.—- The right wing was pofted on the h; ll called Zurich Berg, which is greatly eleva'ed above every other part of the ridge within its reach, ;'. rid is covered with very thick woods1, in which the enemy had made very confiderable abbatis, entirely furround'ing the hill, and defended by redoubts : and this being the molt interefting and decifive point of the pofition, it was oc cupied by a large body of infantry ; the right ving of which was thrown back en Potence towards the town. The lef; wing of the ar- my was placed on the continuance of the a- bove- mentioned chain of hills ; likewife pro- tected by extenfive wood?, abbatis, and en- trenchments :— in tbe centre the ground was much lover, quite tree from wood and of eafy accefs. Through this open fpace ( which is not quite a cannon- fhot in extent from wood to wood), pafs the roads leading from Kloten and Winterthur to Zurich. This is the only part of the pofition in which cavalry could have aCted ; but it was completely covered by a chain of clofed redoubts, confiderably retired, and ferving as a curtain to connedt the two wings, by which it was fo flank'd and defend- ed as to render the attack of this line extreme ly difficult fo long as the wings of the army maintained the heights on each fide of it.— The left flank was further covered by a corps pofted between Regenfberg and the Glat, hav- ing its retreat towards Baden. The only de- fect of the pofirion in front of Zurich was, that in cafe of defeat the whole would have been obliged to defile through the town, fitu- ated clof: behind the right of the pofition, and in which there is but one bridge over the Limmat: for ( whether owing to the rapidity of the river, or what other caufe I know not) the enemy had not, as it was fuppofed he would have done, conltruCted. anv pontoon bridges in the rear of his centre or left. From rhe above mentioned circumftances of the enemy's fruarion, it w* s evident that, if the Zurich- Berg was forced, it muft have brought on he total defeat of their army; whofe retreat through the town, juft at the foot of this bill, would h. ive been attended v, die greateft difficulty. li'irly in the morning of the 4th inftant, the - army marched to attack the enemy. '^ Central Hotze's corps marched off to the left, croffed the Glat, formed on the enemy's right flank, and began the attack of the Zurich- Berg. The enemv defended this poft with the greateft jb- ftin- icy. and although a confiderable part ot Prince REUSS'S column was afterwards fent off to a firft in the attack, it was found impoffible to force it. The enemy was driven indeed from fome of the abbatis and entrenchments, but maintained his principal pofitton on trie Zu- rich- berg, ' ill night put an end ; o « he aCtion. During the night and the whole oftlie next dav, both paities remained exaCtly whe; e they had ( tood at the end of the affair, the Aujlrian THE EDINBURGH infantry of the left wing . biing in many places rmoft within mufk:'-( hot of the enemy's Ab- batis and works. The great fatigue which the troops had undergone on the 4th, determined the ARCHDUKE to defer tili the 6th the renew- al of the attach. But the enemy, whofe lofs in the affair of the 4th had beer very great, and who forefaw the total ruin of his army if the Zurich- Berg ( hould be forced, retired in he ight from the 5th to the 6th, leaving in his entrenchments thirty- five pieces of cannon, three howitzers, and a great number of am- munition waggons. In the afernoon of the 6th, the Aujlriani occupied the town. In the attack of : he4' h inftant the Aujlrian infantry fuffered a confiderable lofs in killed < nd wounded ; among the latter were General Wallis, Lieutenant- General Hotze, inA Major- General Htller. General Hotze received a mufkei- fhot in the arm early in the affair, bur it did not hurt the bone, and fortunately does not prevent his continuing to command his corps. His abfence at this moment would have been fenfiblv felt and fincerely regretted. Cherin ( General of Divifion and Chief of the S aff,) together with two other French G.- ne- als, were feserely wounded, and two Adju- tant Generals, are among the prifoners, of which there are a confiderable number.

IBEG leave to tranfmir for the information of my Lords Commiffioners of the Admi ralrv, a copy of my report to the Right Hon. Earl of ST. VINCENT, of late events in this quarter. TiGRE, off St. John d'Acre, the MY LORD, 23d March, 1799. I HAVE the honour to inform you that, in confequence of in elligence from GEZAR PA- CHA, Governor of Syria, of the incurfion of Gen. BUONAPARTE'S army into that Province, and his approach to its caphal, Acre, I flatten- ed with a portion of the naval force under my orders to its relief, and had the fatisfaition to arrive there two days before the enemy made his appearance. Much was done in this interval under the di- reftion of Capt. Miller, of the Thefins, and Col. Phclypeaux, towards putting the place, in a better ftate of defence, to refift the attack of an European army ; and the prefence of a Bri til]? Naval Force appeared to encourage and decide the Pacha and his troops to make a vi- gorous refi'tance. The enemy's advanced guard was difcover- ed at the foot of Mount Carmel, in the night of the 17th, by the Tigre's guard boats: thefe troops, not expecting to find a naval force of any defcription in Syria, took up their ground clofe to the water fide, and were confequently expofed to the fire of grape ( hot from the boats, which put them to the rout the inftant it open- ed upon them and obliged them to retire pre- cipitately up the fide ot the Mount. The main body of the armv, finding the road between thefeaand Mount Carmel thus expof- ed, came in by that of Nazareth, and inveited the town of Acre to tbe eaft, but not without being mach haraflVd by the Samaritan Arabs, who are even more inimical to the French than the Egyptians. and better armed. As the enemy returned our fire by mufketry only, it was evident they had not brought cannon with hem, which were therefore expeCted by fea, nd meafures were taken accordingly for inter cepting ' hem ; the Tbefieus was already detach- ed oft - Jaffa ( Joppf). The enemy's flo illa which came in from fea fell in with and cap- tured the Torride. and was coming round Mount Carmel, when it was difcovered from the Tigre, confifting of a corvette and nine fail of gun vefiVls ; on feeing us they hauled off. The alacrity of die ( hip's company in making fail afer them was highly praifewor- thy ; our guns. foon reached them, and feven, as p'. r inclofed lilt, ( truck; the corvette con- taining BUONAPARTE'S private property, and wo frnall veflels efcaped, ( ince it became an objeCt to fecure the prizes without chacing fur- ther; their cargoes confifting of the battering train of artillery, ammunition, platforms, See. deftined for the firge of Acre being much wanted for its defence. The prizes were arc- o'dingly anchored off the town, manned from he fhip ® , and immediately employed in har. if- l'lg the enemy's polts, impeding his ap- proaches, and covering the ffiip's boats fent further in ( hore to cut off his fupplies of pro- vifious conveyed coaftwife. They have been cortftantly occupied in thefe fervices for thefe five days and nights paft; and fuch has been the zeal of their crews, that they requefted not to be relieved, after many hours exceflive labour at their guns and oars. 1 am firry to fay that we have met with fome lofs, as per in- ADVERTISER for 1795. clofed lift, which, however, is balanced by greater on the part of the enemy, by the en- couragement given to the Turkith troops from our example, and by the time that is gained for the arrival of a fuffic. ent force to render Buo NAPARTE'S whole projeCt abortive. I have tad reafon to be perfe6tly fitisfied with the gallan try and perfeverance of Li-. uts. Bujhby, Ingl field, Knight, Stokes, and Lieut.

" I baften to inform your Excellency, that I vefterday completely beat the enemy between Winterthur and Ratch, occupied the paffage of Haig, and drove the enemy beyond the Tofis. This aCtion was one of the hotteft that has been fought in this war; it began at day- break and lafted till late in the night; we mufl do the enemy the juftice to own that he made the moft obftinate refiftance, and defended the ground inch by inch. But the irrefiftible'va- lour of the troops I have the honour to com. mand, furmounted everv obftacle, and the ene- my was totally defeated.

" But the batteries being quite ready, and the artillery and amnunition hiving been con- veyed into them at day break, Gen. Count Kle- r. au ordered bombs and howitzer ( hells to be thrown into the citadel. Two magazines of the fortrefs having caught fire, the command- ant was fum'woned a fecond time, and after fome dilatorv anfvers, the flag of truce came about nine o'clock in the evening, with propo- fals of capitulation, which after fome inter- ne- gociation, was concluded at one o'clock in the morning. " In bombarding the fortrefs, the enemy's fire killed two privates of the artillery, and an ar- tificer. " On the 24th, in the morning, the copies of capitulation were refpeCtively exchanged, holtages delivered up. and one hour afterwards the ga e of Socco'fo occupied. " There were found in the fortrefs SEVENTY- TWO quite new brafs cannons, with their am- munition, and ( is months provifions. The Field- repofitory Medicines is eftimaied at 1,500,000 French iivres." " The French G. trrifon made prifoners of war for fix months, who marched out of the Citadel of Ferrara by means of the above- mentioned Capitulation, confifts of 1525 men. " Befides ammunition of every fort, there have been found in the place joo. ooo infan- try- cartridges, and many others of various kinds, 5214 cwt. of gun powder, with a vail quantity of arms, implements of fiege, fhip- gun- carriages, anchors, cables, and naval ftores of every kind, which require a long time to be minutely detailed. " At the fame time that this operation was carried on againlt Ferrara, an expedition was refoived againft Ravenna, and left to the exe- cution of the Firft Lieut. GRILL, ofSTUART'S. " Lieut. GRILL marched ftraightbyPazzas/ i) againft Ravenna, with three companies, and his two pieces of cannon; the infurgent troops, confiding of 300 infantry, he made march, at the fame'time, from St. Alberto, a- gain( t Ravenna. " A' his approach the enemy ( hut the gates, and defended themfelves ; but they were foon forced open, and, after fome fhort refiftance, the enemy retreated by the gate towards Lu- go ; on their flight they loft one piece of can- non, one tumbril, a perfm calling himfelf a Lieutenant- Colonel, an Officer, and about 100 prifoners, whofe number will be foon increafed by thofe who ( hall be found concealed in the houfes. " Ravenna, though it be not a place of ftrength, fays Gen. KRAY, but only a town furrounded with walls, yet its being thus fur- prized and occupied, covers and fecures the whole road along the coaft, and the fubfiftence of the troops in the province of Ferrara." SECO< D SUPPLEMENT EXTRAORDINARY tothe VIENNA COURT GAZETTE, June 4. " On the 26th of May the two divifions of Kaim and Froclich paffed the Stura, and ad- vanced in fuch a manner againft Turin, the capital of Piedmont, as to bear with its left wing upon the Reggio and Barco, and with its j right behind Madonna della Cawpagna. " The Imperial Ruffian Troops, with the divifion of Gen. KARAICZAY, alfo paffed the Stura. then the Dora, and toek its pofition in front of La Certofa. Gen. VUKASSOVICH was reinforced with one battalion, advanced on the right bank of the Po, and occupied the heights called Capuchins. " At nine o'clock at night all the 12- poun- ders and howitzers were fo kept in readinefs, that the town could be bombarded from all fides after mid- nigh!, and the entry into it be ren- dered eafier. On'the 27th the faid capital of Turin was formally fummoned to furrender by Gen. VUKASSOVICH, who commanded the advanced guard. " Af'er its refufal, Gen. VUKASSOVICH or- dered fome howitzer- fhells to be thrown into the city, by which one of the houfc fituate near the Po gate was fet on fire. This induc- ed the well difpofed armed Citizens to open the faid gate to Gen. VUKASSOVICH, notwith- ftanding the enemy's oppofing it. " Two fquadrons of the 7th of Huffas im- mediately forced their way into the city and purfued the flying enemy as far as the gate of the Citadel, where upwards of 40 of them were made prifoners. Meanwhile Gen. Vu- hjfiivich occupied the place with the greateft part of his infantry, and promoted the open- ing of the reft of the gates. The Captain of cavalry, Veczey, of the dragoons of Kaifer, THE EDINBURGH feizsd this opportunity to go in puriuu vi me enemy with a detachment of cavalry ana the picquet of Gitilay, which was ported in the fuburb of Pali no, and took feveral prifoners. " The enemy threw themfelves into the ci- tadel. Whereupon Field- Marfhal Lieutenant Kaira's divifion occupied the city, and was ordered to mmage the blockade of the citadel within the city ; the Ruffian General Prince PANKRAZION, with five battalions, four com- panies of rangers, and four fquadrons of Le- • wenohr blockades it from without. " In the arfenal and on the ramparts of the city, were found upwards of THREE HUN- DRED and SIXTY PIECES of CANNON and MORTARS of different calibre, befides a confide- rable quantity of balls, bombs, more than 6000 cwt. of powder and other artillery ftores. The enemy has alfo left behind an hofpital with 21J fick men. General Melas has no doubt but he will be able to difcover other confiderable ( tores. " Immediately upon our entering Turin, the enemy cannonaded the city for one hour from the Citadel ; they repeated the cannonade a- gain from day- break till five o'clock in the morning, but a Convention had been entered upon afterwards, by virtue of which they were to do nothing more prejudicial to the city. " Gen. SECKENDORF, who advanced with his troops againft Aleffandria at. the conflux of the Orba and Bormida, while the Ruffian Lieutenant SCHWEIKOWSKY had inverted its Citadel on the left bank of the Tanaro, is now keeping it blockaded from the town fide, and his advanced pofts extend from the Scri- via through Novi Cujine and Carantino to Maffi upon the Tanaro, as well as thofe of the Ruffian Coffacks from the latter as far as Caffale. " According to advices received, the enemy collect their main force towards Cuneo." HOUSE OF LORDS. Wednefday, June 19. The Houfe was occupied on the Seditious Society Bill. The only circumftance that at- tracted notice, was the claufe refpeCling ' Free Mafons. The Duke of ATHOLE warmly defended the tenets of the Free Mafons, as perfectly innocent, Loyal, and Benevolent, which he had a per- fect opportunity of knowing, having prefided over them both in England and Scotland. The Biihop of ROCHESTER perfectly agreed with the Noble Duke, with regard to the Re- gular Lodges, but it was faid there were in Great Britain, Eight Illuminated Lodges— and the mifchief fuch Lodges had done abroad, was too well known— It was therefore neceffa- ry for Minifters to be much on their guard re- fpeCting fuch Societies. Lord GRENVILLE obferved, that the doubts fuggefted and apprehenfions entertained by the Rev. Prelate, were thofe which he had ex- prefsly alluded to in a former debate upon the fubjedt- He was convinced of the importance and aware of the delicacy of the cafe, and knew that fome further precautions were ne- cefiary ; he would propofe. four claufes, the elfeCt of which would be to require that the objects and purpofes of fuch lodges as fhould be permifed to meet, fhoald be declared and afcertained te be purely Mafonic, and only for the avowed purpofes of the inftitution, the principal ends of which he conceived to be thofe of charity and benevolence ; that the mode of certifying fhould be, that two Mem- bers of each lodge fhould make affidavit be- fore two or more Magittrates of the particular place where the lodge was held, and of the number and the names of its members. That thefe accounts fhosld be tranfmitred to the Clerk of the Peace, who fhould, once a year furnifh a general account of the whole within his diftriCi, to the Magiftrates, who ( hould be empowered, in cafe of well founded corn- plain's againft any particular lodge, to lup- prefs its mee'ings. Thefe he thought would fiitisfy every reafonable perfon, and all thofe Mafons who merited the character afcribed, and he believed juftly, to them by a Noble Duke. The DUKF. of ATHOL exprefTed his perfeCt approbation of the provifions fuggefted by the Noble Lord. The claufes propofed by Lord GRENVILLE were then unanimoufly agreed to. THE SLAVE CARRYING BILL. The DUKE of CLARENCE expreffed bis un qualified difapprobation of the particular regu- lations contained in the carrying claufe. He contended, that from the great body cf evi dence before the Houfe, refpeCling this Bill, as well as from what he knew from his own perfonal experience, that fuch an interval of t? ace between the decks was totally unnecef- fary ; that inftead of tending to the comfort or the accommodation of the fl. ives, it would tend to the injury of their healths ; and the expences which mult arife in confequence, muft moft ferioufly injure the merchaats.— The Duke propofed fome amendments. An^ 2HTlSEIl for 1799; Lord GRENVILLE contended for the impoli- cy and injuftice of the traffic, and for the expe- diency in point of intereft, as well as in obe- dience to the dictates of humanity, fo make the regulations originally propofed by the Bill in cafes which regarded the lives and deaths of human creatures, and in veiiels which lite- rally carried cargoes of mankind. Lord THURLOW deprecated the hardfhips and expence to which the Merchants had been put from time to time by the Legifl « ture on fitnilaiyiccafions. ever fince the year 178S. He expreifed his approbation ofthe Royal Duke's Amendments. The Earl of LIVERPOOL fpoke for the a- mendments. The Bithop of ROCHESTER fpoke for the Bill as originally propofed. The Committee then divided, when there appeared for theDuKE of CLARENCE'S Amend- ments 17— againft them 19— M- jority 2. The Duke of CLARENCE then moved many other amendments, which were feverally nega- tived. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Thurflay, ' June 20. FINANCE. Mr. Tierney faid, in the year 1793, ( April 5,) at the commencement of the prefent unfortu- nate war, The Funded Debt was - L. 209,000,000 In 1799, April 5, it was 426,000,000 Making in fix years an increafe of L. 217,000,000 Without including in that account the Out- ftanding and Unfunded Debt, Exchequer Bills, Navy Bills, Victualling Bills, Votes of Credit, See. See. At the conclufion of this year, it was therefore apparent that confidering the 4,5oo, oool. of the Sinking Fund, he might ave- rage the Funded Debt to be 460,000,000!. He admitted the increafe of Revenue, and acknow- ledged that it exceeded a!! expectation ; but at the fame time, he ftated, that this was more the confequence of the war than any thing elfe, and therefore this excefs was not to be expeCted in time of peace ; and even fo, ftill the increafe of expenditure infinitely counteracted the increafe of income and profperity of trade ; for the ex- cefs of trade will only continue during the war; whereas the excefs of burden will the more in- creafe after a peace. He dwelt for a confidera- ble time on the Minilters ftatement of Finance, which he faid was fallacious ; and adverted to his frequent difappointment in his feveral efti- mates of taxes during the laft five years, parti- cularly his two laft budgets— that relating to the AJpffed Taxes, and that of the Income bu- finefs ; the former being fhort nearly one- half of his calculation, and in the latter upwards of one- third. Mr. Pitt had not the leaft objeflion that the financial ( fate of the country ( hould exift upon the records of the journals of that Houfe ; but for that purpofe he fubmitted whether it would not be difcreet to fee that fuch records were correCl and authentic, as therefore thefe refolu tions would become fuch records, it was but right that Gentlemen ( hould have an opportu nity of confidering them : for which purpofe he fuggefted the propriety of adjourning the debate to next week ; in the interim, that thefe refolutions Pnould be printed. Mr. Tierney affented ; the debate was ad- journed till to- morrow fe'ennight, and the re- folutions ordered to be printed. Mr. Douglas brought up the report of the Scots Diftiilery Bill. Friday, June 2T. MESSAGE FROM HIS MAJESTY. Mt. PITT brought up a Meflage from his M ijefty to the following effeCt: G. R. His Majefty recommends to this Houfe to make fuch provifion as may be neceffary, to enable him to make remittances to Ireland, from time to time, to an amount not exceed " ing three millions, to be employed for his Ma jelly's fervice as the Parliament of that coun# tiyfhallbe advifed, they alfo making provi fion for repayment of the principal and inte- reft by the fame. Referred to a Committee of Supply. SALT DUTIES IN SCOTLAND. Mr. PITT obferved, that the Salt made in Scotland was of an inferior qu lity to that of this country, and the duty of five ( hillings a bufhel, had raifed it to fuch a price, as, ac cording to the reprefentations made to him, occafioned much inconveniep. ce to the people, by railing the price cf the articles of food in which it was ufed. lie therefore intended to propofe fome new regulations, the principal of which would be changing the rate of the duty from 5s. to 4s. the bufhel. He then moved the following refolutions, which were agreed to nem con. That the duties on fait made in Scotland do ceafe and determine. That for every bufhel of fait made in Scot- land, there be paid the duty of four ( hillings. That for every bufhel of fait imported into England or Wales Iron) Scotland, there be paid 405 the duty of fix ( hillings. That for every bufhel of fait exported from Scotland into foreign parts, there be allowed a drawback of four ( hillings. That for every bufhel of fair ufed in Scotland in making oxygen muriatic acid for blenching linen, there be allowed the drawback of four ( hillings. The bill for granting additional duty on Diltilleries in the Southern Highlands of Scot- land, was read a fecond time, and committed for Monday. Mr. Michael Angeh Taylor called the at- tention of the Houfe to the fubjeCt ofthe depo- fition of the Nabob of Oude. He entered into a hiftory of that tranfaClion ; and moved for feveral papers. Mr. Secretary Du'idat entered into a long difcuflion of that tranfaClion, which he juftified, and he had no doubt that the merits of Sir John Shore would fatisfy the Hon. Gentle- man ; if not, more papers would be produced. Mr. Taylor was fatisfied with the offer, and withdrew his morion. Leave was granted to bring in a bill, for permitting Mr. Bolton to export the machi- nery neceffary for the opera ions of a Mint in the dominions of the EMPEROR PAUL. Ad- journed. Lord MINTO is going out AmbafTador fo Vienna, in the room of Sir MORTON EDEN. Stocks experienced a further rife yefterday.

ROYAL REVIEW OF THE VOLUN- TEERS AT THEIR STATIONS. ExaCtly at nine o'clock yefterday morning his MAJESTY, attended by the PRINCE of WALES, the DUKE of YORK, Prince EDWARD, and a number of Field Officers, arrived in St. George's Fields, oppofite the Afylum, where the firft line of Volunteers, belonging to the fouth fide of the metropolis, viz. the Lambeth Horfe and Foot, Surry Yeomanry, Borough, Chrift Church, and other aflociations commenc- ed, extending on the right hand of the road, round by the Obelifk to the Magdalen Hofpitai, which line his Majefty, having pafled in review, he proceeded to Blackfriars Bridge, where he was met by the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs, who. preceded him on horfeback to the extent of the city limits. At Chatham Square were drawn up, the St. Paul's and Temple Bar Volunteers, and along Ludgate Hill, Cheapfide, See. thofe which be longed to the neareft diftrifts : from the Man- fion Houfe to the India Houfe, the line confid- ed ofthe Bank and Eaft India Volunteers ; and on Towerhill arid at Finfbury Square, other large corps were affembled : at the latter fta- tion his Royal Highnefs the PRINCE of WALES put himfelf at the head of the Artillery Com- pany, of which he is Captain- General.— Here, alfo, were drawn up the London Light Horfe, the whole forming a very brilliant coup d'ceil. From Finfbury- fquare the Royal party proceed- ed towards Iflington, Lamb's Conduit- fields, & c. and infpeCted theBloomfbury, St. George's, & c. Volunteers; and the review terminated, apparently much to the fnisfaClion of his MA- JESTY, and all the Field Officers. The QUEEN and PRINCESSES met'his Ma- jefty at the LORD CHANCELLOR'S houfe, in Bedford fqm're, at twelve, where " the Royal Party breakfafted. His Majeity appeared as ufual in high health and fpiriis. The entertainment provided by his Lordfhip for his auguft vifitors, was fumptuous and mag- nificent in the ex'reme, confifting of) every de- licacy of the feaion, and conducted « ith much taft: by Lady LOUGHBOROUGH, M/ EER'SKINE her niece, and the Mifs COATES. Mil's Erfkine, at the requelt of their Royal Highneffes , per formed feveral beautiful airs on the harp, with great fade and execu- ion. The Royal party were alfo entertained by the recitations of Maf- ter Parker, and the vocal abilities of Nield, Knivett, Maltcr Elliott, and Dignum, the lat- ter of whom fung with great effect the BATTLB of CAMPERDOWN. Salomon alfo performed feveral tunes on the violin. The Royal Fa- mily " appeared at the windows to the view of the l" p'Ctitors. After ( faying near two hours, therr Majelties went into theFounali, g Hofpi- tal Ground, where the Bioomfbury and Inns of Court Alfociarions, the Somerfet- houfe and Pancras Vjlunteer" s, were ir. fpcCted; after which the Royal Family vifited the Chapel, and on their entrance, the children, in full choius, fung, God Jive the King! which had a very pleafing effeCl. An authem was alfo perform- ed. At four o'clock their Majefties went to Hyde Park, L- dy LOUGHBOROUGH and Mifs ERSKINE attending them. Here his M. j- fty ialpeCled the Weflminifter Cavalry, the St. John's and St. Margaret's Volunteeis, the 40 6 Knights Msrfhal, Pimlico, and Kenfington. Af- fociations, who had been ftstioned on the ground from eight in die morning until five in the afternoon. T e congourfc of people drawn together in the different1 avenues of the town on this ex traordinary occafion, was greater than was ever known : na materia! accident happened. The number of the Volunteer Military at their pcfts, amounted to not left than- TniR- TEEN THOUSAND well difciplined mem, In every part of the town through which the Royal Cavalcade paded, the bells were rung, and the windows in all the flreets were crowded with- elegant women. The fpe& acle of the day was certainly one of the gayeft the metropolis ever witneffed. Yelterday the Temple AJJociation received their colours in the Temple Gardens, a pre- fent from the young PRINCESS E/" WALES— Lady ELCWN was the proxy of her Royal Higb^ nefs on the occafion. A vaft concourfe of peoT p! e were drawn together, in expedition of feeing the Princefs herfeif, who was not pre- lent :; they were of courfe not a little difip- pointed; nhe fpeftacle, however, upon the whole, was very pleafi- g. It having been ftated in nnriy papers, that Col. AJlon fell bv the hand of Major Craigie, we think it only juftice to that Gentleman, and an aS of humanity towards his friends, to con- tradict fuch report. A letter, dated Madras, Jan. 3, 1799, fays, " C » ) l. AJlon expired three , days ago in the arms of Major Craigie, his iecond, after fuffering. almoft without a groan, moft dreadful torture for many days. He un- fortunately fell by a Ihot from Major Allen." The change produced on the face of the country in the laft ten days, is the rtioft ex- traordinary and grateful of any ever remem- bered. Nature is at length arrayed in the moft beautiful verdure, and there is every where the appearance of plenty. The Cyder counties never had the appea- rance of a better crop: the blofToms, particu- larly in Hereford/ hire, never were remember- ed to look fo fine and beautiful. Within thefe few days, the prices of all the neceflaries of life have had a confiderable fall, in the markets of England. A PUN.— Yefterday a French Gentleman called at a public- houfe for a gill of wine, which being brought him in a glafs, he obferv- ed, that the quantity was very fmall; that in France it was always the cuftom to bring li- quor in a. meafure.—" Aye," faid the Land- lord," but we don't wifh to introduce French ? neafures here."

J1 « The uninterrupted and brilliant fuccefies of the ALLIES, are detailed in the - LoNnoN GA- ZETTE EXTRAORDINARY, and in the Vienna Gazettes, inferted in pages 404 and 40J.' The LONDON GAZETTE, page 404, contains an acountfrom Sir SIDNEY SM^ H, of his hav- ing defeated BUONAPARTE'S Army, and taken the French FUtilla. This is the only ac- count of BUONAPARTE'S Army that has been publifhed in the Gazette for feveral months. The Hamburgh Mails vfee page 404,) con- firm the account. of the furrender of Turin, ex- cept the citadel, which is blockaded by " Gen. VUKASSOVICH. The Allies have made them- felves msfters of Ravenna, and are blockading Alexandria. MOREAU, with his famifhed fol- lowers, was rapidly falling back towards Nice, the old French frontier, whither SOWARROW was purfuing him. Gen. MACDONALD con tinued in the fame critical firuation, and a very large reinforcement of Ruffians was march- ing to join the army deftined to aft againft him, which confided of 30,000 men. The city of Z. itrich v.- as evacuated immedi- ately after MASSENA'S Retreat ; and the fuccefs of the Auflrians may be confidered as having decided the fate of Switzerland, wtfTch leems wrefted from the French, for it is Sardly poflible they can now retrieve their iofles in that quarter. The French garrifon cf Ancona confifts of 700. men. On the 24tH ult. the Ruffian and Turkifh fquadron, confiding of 27 fail, con- tinued to bombard it. The fiege of MANTUA having been turned into a blockade,- becaufc Gen. KRAY is march- ing with a body of troops againft Gen. MAC1 DONALD, the French made a fortie on the 20th with 36 pieces of cannon, thinking MACDO NALD had already arrived before the place.— They were driven back with great lofs. Some of the Ruffian troops have entered Switzerland, and coming down the mountains of Lugo Maggiore, have joined the infurgents in the Upper, Walloon country. It is a fubjefl of aftonifhm'ent, with what facility the French give up places by capitula- tion, even before the fire of the batteries is opened againft them. The Citadel of Ferra- ra, carefully fortified, and well fupplied with artillery and provifions, has made no more re ( iilance than the Cajlle of Milan. Ravenna has not even been defended. The city of Tu- rin opened its gates aimoft at the firft fummons. This is a favourable omen of the furrender of thofe fuperior places which yet remain to bt conquered in Italy, and which confift only ot Mantua, and the Citadels^^ of AleJJandria, Tor- Una, and Turin. ! . The Military Ardour and Enthufiafm of the Great Natiotf are annihilated. A number of circumftances lead us to be- lieve, that the Direflory has fecretly deterniin ed to withdraw their armies infenfibly within the interior of France ; that the reinforce- ments intended to join them are kept on the frontiers ; and that the UJurpers are now oc- cupied exclufively, not in preferving their conquefts, but in providing for the defence of the French Republic. Io no campaign has more blood been ( hed in a Ihorter time : nor has any been fignalifed by more important confequences. The gallant LF. ANDER will once more ap- pear in the Britijh fervice, in the Mediterra- nean, the EMPEROR of RUSSIA having hand- fomely made a prefent of her to his BRITAN- NIC MAJESTY.—( See GAZETTE, page 404.) The CABINET of PRUSSIA has declared, that, in c^ fe the French do not evacuate Duffll- dorjf, Ehrenbuitflein* and the . whole right fide of the Rhine, wirh Caffel, the KING will join the Coalition. Count SANDOS ROLLIN, it is alfo faid, has received pofitive orders to quit Paris immediately, if any equivocal an- Aver be given to him on the fubjedt. This account gave rife to a report, that the KING of PRUSSIA hadaftualiy marched an army into Gi^ ddcrland; but tbe Hamburgh Mails llate nothing refpeiling that Monarch, but what is mentioned in the preceding paragraph, and the following one : On the 7th inftant the KING of PRUSSIA was proceeding along the line of demarkation to- wards Caffd, reviewing his troops in company with the Landgrave of Heffe Caffd, having yifited the Prince Adolphus of England at Ha- nover, on the 29th ot May. The following is an extrarS of a letter from Ovyyffd, dated on the 9th inft. the authenti- city of which may be perleflly relied upon : " It is the general belief here, that the KNG of PRUSSIA will undoubtedly take an aClive part in re- eftablilhing the Ancient Go vernment of this country, and is only waiting the farther progrefs of the armies in Italy and Switzerland befoie he begins to a- 51.'

In the mean time their troops are marching toward the frontiers, on which batteries have been ererffed. Four are erefted near Hardenberg, and the town of Coevordon is already calemated and garrifoned." It is with pleafure we obferse ( fee page 405) that Mr. Pitt has brought in a bill for ia - ver- ing the duties on Salt ufed in Scotland. In the brief abftract of the amended Militia Bill for Scotland, in our paper of Tuefday laft, it was erroneoufly ftated that Quakers having paid the penalty of ten pounds, ihould, if their names were drawn a fecond time, on payment cf a further penalty of five pounds, be for ever relieved from ferving in the militia ; whereas the claufe alluded to exprefsly dates that all perfons chofn by ballot ( not being Quakers) ( hall, if drawn a fecond time, be for ever re- lieved from ferving on payment of the further penalty of five pounds.

CITY AND ROYALTY OF EDINBURGH INCOME TAX OFFICE, No. 7, SOIJTH BRIDGE STREET, 24tb June, 1799, The ASSESSOR, having compleatcd the delivery of the Notices in terms of the ACt of Parliament, to the Houfeholders within the City and Royal- ty of Edinburgh, the CommilSoners will give at- tendance at this Office, every Monday, Tuefday, Wednefday, and Friday, from 12 o'clock noon, to 3 o'clock afternoon, till further notice, for carrying the purpofes of the Act into execution. Being informed that fundry perfons founding upon a miftaken idei, have fuppofed that from the amount of their income, they are intitled to deduCt the rent of their dwelling- houfe, and maintenance of their family, holding the overplus to be the fum liable in alfeffment, the Commiliioners find it necelfary to give notice, that no fuch deductions are allowed by the Act of Parliament, and that fuch perfons as have already made the return of their income, formed upon thefe erroneous principles, may have it in their power to correct the miitake, they aredefired to call at tbis Office, during the hours of the Commiffion- ers attendance. The Commiffion'ers further beg leave to call the • attention of perfons liable in the income tax, to the following particulars, with refpeCt to which, there is reafon to believe, that a mifreprefentation has taken place. 1/ I, With regard to the AfielTcd Taxes, it is only the Angle rate, or annual duty, that was paid before the late aCt of the 38th of his Majefty, commonly calfcd the Aid and Contribution ACt, that is allow- ed to be deducfted from the amount of income, and not the triple afTeffmene, id, That the fust paid laft year, as a Voluntary Contribution for carrying on the war, is not to bv deducted from the income of the perfon who contri- buted the fame. 3< i, That the expence of children at. public Schools, or Univerfities, or Boarded with private Teachers, is not a deduction warranted by law, there children being confidered as forming a part of the family, and no other allowance is to be given for them, than the rate of per centage upon the fum to be alleffed, . ac- cording to the ' number of children, as fixed by the adt. The Commifiioners of the County, having pub- lifhed in the different newfpapers, the particular de- ductions allowed in the aCt, it is neceffary that every perfon perufe and confider the fame before returning the ftatement of income', agreeable to one or other of the forms in the notice delivered by the affeffor.
