Albion Fire and Life Office, London, iff December, 1S05. THE DIRECTORS of the ALBION FIRE' and LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY of LONDON, having considered the very heavy expense, and the nu- merous inconveniencies attending the establishment of Agencies, and being desirous to devise' some mode of lessening the charges of Insurance to' persons resident in the country, Without diminishing the security, or fair profit, of the Company or, such business, have determin- ed, for the present, to refrain from the appointment of A- gents;; and to offer to all persons having buildings, goods, or other property, to insure, at more than four miles distance front London, AN ABATEMENT OF NO LESS THAN TWENTY- FIVE pER CENT. PER ANNUM, on the premiums usually charged, provided such Infu- rances be effected at the Company's Office in London, through the friends or agents of the parties; and with- out the Company being involved in any correspondence, or other duty, excepting that of supplying such friends or agents, with every necessary information at the Of- fice, for the guidance of thosfe who may wiih to take the benefit of this offer. If Insurances be made for three, or more years, at once, a further abatement will be allowed; by which perfons Insuring will not only be in a still greater de- gree benefited, but will be relieved from the trouble of frequent renewals' of their Policies. In cases where the Annual Premium, ac- cording to the charge generally made, would be-. V 2. it will be reduced to 3. ditto 5. ditto And in the like proportion for the intermediate years. A confiderabie allowance will be alfo made, accor- ding to A( 5t of Parliament, on the King's duty, when paid for more than one year. The Proposals of the Company, with full explana- tions as to the method in which infurances should be ar- ranged, and property defcribed, will be delivered, free of charge, to any perfon who may apply at the Com pany's Office, in Change Alley, London. The whole will be comprifed in one sheet, so as to admit of being forwarded at the expence of single postage. The Directors beg particularly to impress on the pub- lic attention that the above offer is not made in any spirit of adventure, but on known and justifiable grounds. The saving, on which they are entitled to calculate, will be quite equal to the reduction proposed. It is on no other footing that such an alteration of charge could be attempted, with justice to the Company, or to the public, becaufe the premiums, as they now stand, do not admit of abatement without a clear and certain in demnity. The object of the Company is to give to persons residing in the country the whole benefit of a saving of which their business is susceptible ; with no other difference than that of occafioning to fuch perfons the trifling trouble which may attend the employment of a friend t n London, once in a year, or, if it be pre- ferred, once only in several years. The funds and resources of the Albion Company are equal to those of any. institution. formed for the same purposes The conditions of insurance are more favour- able than have been yet offered ; and the rates, on which the above reductions will be made are as moderate as those of any Company, and, in some instances, more moderate than have been before proposed.

STUTGARD, NOV. 17— We have just been in- formed that General Wolffkehl's corps, which had taken a pofition in the neighbourhood of Bregentz, has endeavoured in vain to effedt its retreat by the Vintschgau, to join the corps un der Prince John, and that, not deeming that plan practicable, it had determined to divide in' to feveral detachments, with orders to take dif- ferent roads, to efcape the French. Some thefe detachments forming two fquadrons of the huffars of Blankenstein, and the rest of the in fantry proceeded by Leutkirch to Biberach, from whence afcending the Danube, and passing it at Mengen 4h 1 Sigmaringen, they hastensed to Blau- beuren, cutting off thus the great road from our city to Ulm, whence they attempted to get by Hiedenheim and Aalen into the territory of An- spach, and from thence by Nuremberg to Bohe- mia. But we are assured that the army under Augereau, the first column of which arrived on the 12th at Ravensbourg, has cut off the retreat of some of the Austrian detachments, and ob- liged them to turn back again to the Voralberg and the Tyrol. We learn by letters from Kempten, that Mar- shal Ney has set out with the greater part of bis troops from the environs of Inspruck, to pursue Prince John. After having defeated him at the foot of Mount Brenner, the French, it is said, passed that famous mountain, from whence they are proceeding to Lenz and Draubourg, to re- pair to Villach, and there to join Marshal Ber- nadotte. Letters from Bareuth announce that a satis- factory reply has been made to the King of Prus- sia, relative to the passage of the French troops by the Margraviate of Anspach, and to the da- mage done. A private letter from Nuremberg fays, that 66,000 florins in new gold of the coinage of the Emperor Napoleon has been sent to Furth, to be deposited in the Prussian Bank there, that sum being the amount of the damage occasioned by the above- mentioned march. STRASBURGH, NOV. 21.— We have not yet received the official bulletin of the entrance of our troops into Vienna, nor the details that fol- lowed tbe taking of that city. All the private letters from Augsburg, Munich, and fome other places, affirm positively that couriers from head- quarters passed through there on the 13th and 16th of November, with the news of the en- trance of the French into Vienna. It is said, that the Imperial Guard from the garrison of the city, and that other corps of French troops have been lodged in the suburbs. It is supposed that the courier with the official dispatches has been intercepted by the Austrian cavalry, which has effected its retreat from the Banks of the Lake of Constance, and which by the last advices oc- cupied some places on the great road from Heil- bron to Nordlingen and Donawerth. Perhaps the courier may have gone round by Franconia. We have received the confirmation of the news, dating that Massena has parted the Tagmomenta, and is hastening rapidly to the frontiers of Ca- rinthia and Carniola, to join the grand army. Private letters announce, that Prince Murat has advanced to Presburg, - where i has fixed his head- quarters. Her Majesty will repair for two or three days to Carlsruhe, to visit the Electoral family of Ba- den, but it is not certain whether she will jjo as far as Munich. RATISBON, NOV. 13.— By express order of his Imperial Majesty of France, all the women who have followed the French army, are to be sent beyond the Inn. General Sebastiani did nothing more than pass through Vienna ; he took the road to Hungary, which is encumbered with waggons, baggage, and effects belonging to the Court. MUNICH, NOV. 16.— The greatest expedi- tion is using in the demolition of the fortifications of Ulm If he French display prodigious intrepidity in the scaling of the forts and rocks which protect the defiles of the Tyrol, the Austrians and militia do r. ot shew less firmness in defence. Many wo- men, and even girls, armed with fusils, have taken part in the different actions. These heroines hav- ing fired upon the French troops during their pas- sage through some villages, an ordonnance has been published, rendering their husbands and pa- rents responsible for these infractions of the rules of war. BERLIN, NOV. 13— Lord Harrowby arrived h re yesterday. Yesterday 200 waggons belonging to the baking department, set off to follow our troops into Lower Saxony. AUGSBURG, NOV. 17.— It is now decided that, a cordon of neutrality shall be formed from the frontiers of Holland to those of Bohemia— This cordon will be occupied by the Prussians, Hessians and Saxons. It will extend along the Electorate of Hesse. by the country of Fulda, and from thence along tbe circle of Upper Saxony. As to the disposition of Prussia, it is now known that the convention which was signed on the 3d of Nov. at Potsdam, between the Empe- ror of Russia and the King of Prussia is only con- tingent, and merely engages Prussia to make pro- portion for the re- establishment of peace. These propositions have been arranded, but they may be modified. M. d'Oubril has been charged to pro- ceed to London to communicate them to the English Government, whilst the Minister of State Haugwitz, communicates them to M. De Talley- rand, Minister of his Majesty the Emperor of the French. No alliance has been contacted between Prussia and Austria, and the former of these pow- ers it is said formally reserves her neutrality in the event of the Continental War being still con- tinued. It is certain, however, that some of the first Princes of the Empire have been invited to accede to the Convention which we have men-, tioned. A great number of Polish officers coming from France, have been summoned to the Imperial head- quarters. Several of them have passed by Ulm, proceeding on the route to Munich, and from thence to Austria. The inhabitants of Venice have been informed by a proclamation published by the Count De Biesingen, Governor General of Austria, that 24,000 Russians would arrive on the 3d of No- vember by sea from Corfu and Dalmatia, ( where the Russians had already relieved the Austrians, who had departed for the army,) and that they were to be treated as friends and brothers, and quartered on the inhabitants. The Venetians, however, detest the Russians, and several riots have already taken place. According to letters from Trieste a corps of 400c Russians had alrea- dy disembarked at Venice, and the second divi- fion was daily expected. PARIS, NOV. 25— It is said that the Polish General Kosciusko is gone to Strasburg. M. Jerome Bonaparte arrived on the 20th at Nantes. The deputation of the Conservative Senate has returned from the grand army. The Minister for foreign affairs is gone from Munich to Moelk. ACTION OFF CAPE TRAFALGAR. Extract of a letter received by the Euryalus, dated off Trafalgar; Oct. 26. " I have at length found an opportunity of writing to you after having been incessantly em- ployed, and in the greatest danger, since the ac- tion ; and you must not expect from me a very accurate or detailed statement of our proceedings. You may however depend upon me for not giv- ing you any accounts which did not fall under my own observation. " The enemy having been seen at day- break, on the 21 ft of Oct. the Admiral made the signal to form two lines, and in two minutes after to prepare for battle. We neared them so fast by eleven A. M. that Lord Nelson notified to the Royal Sovereign his intention to break the ene- my's line, and prevent their getting into Cales— At half past eleven he gave us his last order by the telegraph— England expects every man to do his duty. At a few minutes before twelve he repeated the signal to engage quite close, and al- most at the same moment the enemy opened his fire upon the Victory and Royal Sovereign, which led their respective divisions. The latter ship was for a confiderable time entirely unsup- ported, from the difficulty which the Mars and Tonnant found in keeping their way in flaws of wind which were perpetually, drifting ; but, in ten minutes afterwards, the Tonnant supported her most gallantly indeed, in action with the Monarca, ( which fell aboard her) and the Mars was as closely engaged with the Fougeux, which struck to her. The Santa Anna of 112 guns, was well fought, and being supported by the In- domptable, of 84, was for a considerable period a full match for the Royal Sovereign. The lat- ter, however, struck to the Santa Anna, dismast- ed her, and beat her almost to, pieces; and we at length had the satisfaction of seeing her strike to Admiral Collingwood. ' " The heaviest part of the action of the van division fell on these three ships, until the line having been broken, the Belleisle and Bellera- phon got closely engaged with a group of four ships, consisting of the Algesiras, ( formerly out Hannibal) the Argonaute, the Aigle, and the Bahama; every one of which were taken ; and although it is not easy to state to what ships they individually struck, yet the Bellerophon and Bel- leisle too plainly tell by their returns of killed and wounded, and the former in the top of all her masts, how much they contributed to the vic- tory. " While this was passing with Admiral Col- lingwood's division, that of Lord Nelson was e- qually engaged. The Victory opened her fire at a quarter after twelve, and endeavoured to break the French line by passing under the stern of the Bucentaure, of 8a guns, bearing the com- mander in chief's flag, and being the finest ship in the French navy. He here met with a most gal- lant and determined resistance, in the Redoubta- ble, of 84 guns, who closed upon the Bucentaure for her support, so that the Victory could not a- void running her on board; and being entangled with her, both ships payed off before the wind, un- able to disengage from each other. This acci- dent, however, proved fatal to the Redoubtable, inasmuch as he had the whole strength of the Vic- tory upon her; at the same time the San Leandro and the Neptune, the latter of which was on tht fame line with the Bucentaure and her sister ship, severely annoyed the Admiral. " Capt. Harvey, of the Temeraire, was close in the wake of the Victory, and having run be- tween her and the Intrepid, of 74 guns, got foul of her, and by paying off, found herself likewise foul of the Redoubtable, and locked in between these two ships. In this situation she was obliged to fight both sides, and being boarded at the same time by both antagonists, was obliged to make a desperate exertion to save herself from the great bodies of troops which poured in upon her ; a terrible contest ensued, in which at one time the enemy had even advanced upon her poop, and were struggling for her colours. " Captain Harvey succeeded in repulsing both sets of boarders, and following his blow, on boat the Intrepide of 74 guns, got possession of her after a most severe conflict. The third ship in this di- vision, the Neptune, 98, Capt. Freemantle, took up the Bucentaure, which had been forced out of Lord Nelson's grasp, and engaged her for some time, supported, most gallantly by the Conqueror, the ship astern of her, but observing the Santissima Trinidada, of 140 guns, separated from the group of ships which were locked together, and present- ing her stern, and apparently unable from want of seaman- ship to bring her head round, placed him- self within pistol- shot, and after the closest action of above 40 minutes succeeded in carrying away her mizen and main- masts. By this accident Hie payed off, but the Neptune preserved her advan- tage, and in ten minutes more her foremast went. Shortly after which an English Jack was thrown over her starboard quarter; and several of her Officers hailing the Neptune at the same time, an- nounced to her that this magnificent ship, the lar- gest. in the world, had struck to her ! 1 " The Conqueror, during this period, observ- ing that the enemy's van had worn, bore down upon them, to check the progress of six sail that were passing to windward : and she, together with the Leviathan and Orion, maintained a very heavy action with the San Juste, San Augustin, and the San Francis d' Asis, all of which struck. " I have thus endeavoured to give you a short history of this action, as far as the volumes of smoke permitted me. Of course, many brave ac- tions escaped my eye ; but these were the pro ceedings of our headmost ships, which contributed so essentially to this brilliant victory. But I have | now to add, that which has clouded the whole, the loss- of our gallant Nelson, who was killed by a musket shot from the mizen- top of the Re doubtable, but fortunately lived long enough to witness the noblest victory that Britain ever gain ed ; I will say nothing more to you on that sub ject, for every heart is full, and you who know how much I loved and honoured him know what I feel on this calamity. " At a quarter past four the Victory and Roy- al Sovereign, which had disengaged themselves: and taken a most distinguished part against the re- serve of the enemy, commanded by Gravina, made the signal to haul to the wind on the larboard tack, when the firing ceased, leaving us in possession of 18 sail of the line, exclusive of the Achille, which was on fire, and soon blew up. " Our subsequent labours have been inces- sant, but they will form the subject of another let- ter." THE LAST MOMENTS OF LORD NELSON, FROM AN OFFICER. WHO WAS WITH HIM. Previous to the commencement of the battle of Trafalgar, Lord Nelson went over the different decks of the Victory, saw and spoke to the differ- ent classes of feamen, encouraged them with his usual affability, and was much pleased at the man- ner in which the seamen had. barricaded the hawse holes of the ship. All was perfect death- like si- lence till just before the action began. Three cheers were given his Lordlhip as he afcended the quarter deck ladder. He had been particu- lar in recommending cool, steady firing, in pre ference to a hurrying fire, without aim or preci- sion, and the event justified his Lordship's ad- vice, as the masts of his opponents came tumb- ling down on their decks, and over their sides ; within half an hour after, tbe battle began to tage in its full fury ; the royal marines on the poop soon felt the effect ( as well as the officers, feamen, and royal marines on the quarter- deck) of the system of sharp shooting from the tops of the Bucentaur, 84, Adm. Villeneuve. The men began to drop fast, and poor Capt. Adair, of the royal marines, was struck with a rifle ball, which so irritated him, that he asked Lord Nelson leave to take up in the tops and place some of his royal marine party, with an officer, to counteract the destructive fire of those sharp shooters of the ene- my. The men went up the shrouds, and as Cap- tain Adair was ascending, he fell quite dead on the poop, perforated with near 20 balls from hose marksmen. The action then became very hot, and Lord Nelson was advifed not to appear fo conspicuously, in full uniform, to the mark of the topmen of the enemy. His answer ought to be recorded on the heart of every Briton, and en- graven on his monument—" No, said his Lord- hip, whatever may be the confequence, the in- gnia of the honours I now wear I gained by the exertions of British seamen, under my command in various parts of the world ; and in the hour of danger, I am proud to shew them and the ene- mies of old England, I will never part with t tem ; if it please God I am to fall, I will ex- pire with these trophies entwined round my heart." About a quarter before two the fatal bullet struck his Lordship above the star on the left side, and his Secretary, Mr Scott, fell quite dead on the deck, with many seamen and ma- rines. Lord Nelson was conveyed below, and per- fectly sure that the wound was fatal. A master's mate, one of his signal officers, and a protege- of his Lordship, was with him to his last moment— he was to have been promoted to a lieutenancy by his Lordship, for his great merit. The sur- geon came and probed the wound ; the ball was extracted, but his Lordship, though apparently exhausting, told the Surgeon he was sure his wound was fatal, and begged, when he had dres- sed him, he would attend the other poor fellows, equal sufferers with himself. Frequent messages passed from Lord Nelson to Captain Hardy, re- specting the fate of the battle. His countenance brightened as the number of ships that had struck were related ; but when the number of nineteen sail was mentioned, an hectic flush of joy appear- on his wan face, and he fe£ med to revive a little. It was the hectic of a moment.— Before and af- ter he was wounded, several kind messages and inquiries came from Lord Collingwood, and it appeared to soothe the last hour and moments of this great Hero to find himself so ably seconded. About a quarter before four, the battle ceased to rage with its pristine fury, and word being brought below that the defeat of the enemy was complete, the dying Nelson pronounced the word victory ! but upon attempting to repeat it, he convulsive- ly grasped the hands of one of his friends near him— the blood rushed from the lungs into the - throat, and he expired calmly, and without a groan. Thus died the greatest Hero that Eng- land ever produced. PATRIOTIC FUND. The following are the noble resolutions of a Special General Meeting of the Committee, held u Lloyd's on the 3d inst Resolved, That a Vase of the value of L. 500, orna- nented with emblematical devices, and appropriate in- ' criptions, illustrative of the transcendant and heroic at- hievements of the late Lord Viscount Nelson, be pre- sented to his relict, Lady Viscountess Nelson. Resolved, That a similar Vase be presented to the present Earl Nelson, of Trafalgar, to descend as an heir loom, with the title so gloriously acquired. Resolved, That a similar Vase be prefented to Vice- Admiral Lord Collingwood, who, after the death of the Commander in Chief, in the hour of victory, lb nobly completed the triumph of the day. Resolved, That Vases of the value of I,. 300 each, with appropriate inscriptions, be presented to the Right hon. Rear- Admiral the Earl of Northesk, and Sir R. strachan, Bart. Resolved, That Swords of the value of I,. 100 each, with appropriate inscriptions, be presented to the sur- viving Captains and Commanders of his Majesty's ships who shared in the dangers and glory of those memor- able actions. Resolved, That the fum of L. 100 be presented to each of the Lieutenants of his Majesty's Navy, Captains of the Royal Marines, and other officers in the second class of his Majesty's proclamation for the distribution of prize- money, who was severely wounded; and the sum of L. 50 to each officer of the same rank who was slight- ly wounded. Resolved, That the fum of L. SO be presented to each of the officers in the third class of his Majesty's procla- mation for'the distribution of prize- money, who was severely wounded; and the sum of L. 30 to each officer of the rank who was slightly wounded. Resolved, That the sum of L. 40 be presented to each of the officers in the 4th class of his Majesty's procla- mation for the distribution of prize- money, who was se- verely wounded ; and the sum of L. 25 to each officer of the same rank who was slightly wounded ; and that additional gratuities be hereafter voted to such officers as may be disabled in consequence of their wounds. Resolved, That the sum of L. 40 be prefented to eve- ry seaman or marine whose wounds may be attended with disability or loss of limb; the fum ofL. 20 to each seaman or marine severely wounded; and the sum of L. 10 to each seaman or marine slightly wounded. Resolved, That relief be afforded to the widows, or- phans, parents, and relatives depending for support on the Captains, officers, petty officers, feamen, and ma- rines, who fell in these glorious engagements, as foon as their respective situations shall be made known to the Committee. Resolved, That letters be written to Lord Colling- wood and Sir R. Strachan, requesting they will com- municate the above Resolutions to the different ships un- der their command, and furnish the Committee with the names of the private seamen and marines killed and woudded, with such particulars as they can collect, re- specting the widows, orphans or other relatives, who de- pended for fupport on the brave men who so gloriously fell in the cause of their country. Refolved, That the fums contributed on the Day of Thanksgiving be exclufively appropriated to the relief of the seamen, marines, and volunteers wounded, and to the widows, orphans, and relatives, of thofe killed, in his Majesty's service, and that a separate account be kept of the fame. The following anecdote of Thomas Main, a seaman of the Leviathan, has been communicat- ed to the Committee, by the commander of that vessel— " I must beg to relate a trifling anecdote of one of my men, the captain- of the forecastle, as it will serve to shew the enthusiasm of a British seaman when fighting with the enemies of his country. " We had passed through the line, and had assisted in disabling and silencing the French Admiral's ship, and the four- decker, the Santissima Trinidada; but were much galled by a distant cannonade'from a separated few of the enemy's ships : at last the St Augustin, of 74 guns, bearing the pendant of Commodore Cagidal, gave us an opportunity of closing with him, which was im- mediately embraced, and he was soon taken. While this was doing, a shot took off the arm of Thomas Main, when at his gun at the forecastle. His messmates kind- ly offered to assist him in going to the surgeon; but he bluntly told them, •' I thank you; stay where you are ; you will do more good there.' He then went down himself to the Cockpit. " The Surgeon, who respected him as a good man, would willingly have attended to him in preference to others who had been brought down a few moments be- fore ; but this brave seaman would not admit of it,' A- vast, not until it- comes to my turn, if you please.' The Surgeon soon after amputated his arm, near the shoul- der ; during which operation, with great composure, smiling, and with a steady clear voice, he sung the whole of Rule Britannia.' " The cheerfulness of this tough son of Neptune was of infinite use in keeping up the spirits of his wounded shipmates; but I am sorry to inform you, this fine fel- low died in Gibraltar Hospital of a fever, when his arm was nearly well. CAPTURE OF THE BRUNSWICK INDIAMAN. Mr Pears purser of the Hon. Company's ship Brunswick, arrived at the India House on Saturday, with the melancholy intelligence of that ship having been capturcd by Rear Admiral Linois, in the Marengo, accompanied by La Belle Poule frigate, on the nth July last, off Point de Galle. This ship separated from the homeward- bound China fleet in February last, for Bombay, in consequence of her fpringing a leak, and, after very great exertions in keeping her afloat, arrived there, making nearly six feet wa- ter per hour. After receiving the necessary re- pairs, she failed from Bombay for China on the 1 ft of July, with three country ships, two of which parted company on the 4th, in very dark, blowing, squally weather. On the nth, the Sarah, . Captain M'Intosh, being the only ship then in company with the Brunswick, they fell in with the French squadron, to which, after ah - ineffectual attempt at resistance, the Brunf- wick surrendered. The Sarah being considera- bly to windward, made for the land, closely pur- fued by the frigate, and soon after ran upon the breakers, with all sails set, when she immediate- ly hoisted a signal of distress, and, from the re- port made by the captain of La Belle Poule, up- on his return, she must be totally lost. Captain Grant and the officers of the Brunswick were sent on board Le Marengo, who continued her cruize to the south ; and, on the 6th of August, in lat. 20. long. 80. 30. E. they fell in with an outward bound India fleet, consisting of 11 fail; about four P. M. they were standing to the north, and when first discovered, it being thick hazy weather, were not more than three or four miles distant. Every thing was immediately cleared for action, and the Brunswick's officers and men sent below. The action commenced about 30 minutes part five P. M. and continued without intermission nearly half an hour. The Admiral bore up to leeward of the fleet, and continued receiving and returning their fire until they had passed them all, when, having received several shot from one which they supposed to be a man of war, they continued under a press of sail, and kept hauling out to windward all night, still keeping in sight of the fleet. The Brunf- wick, which was then in company, separated from tbe fleet at the beginning of the action, ar. d stand- ing to the south, was soon out of fight. At day- light the English fleet were perceived about four miles astern to leeward, all hove to in line- of- battle, expecting the attack of the French Admiral, who had then shortened sail under his top- sails and fore- sails. About feven A. M. the Marengo bore up to reconnoitre and ascertain the force of the English, when having ran about a mile and a half to leeward, she again hauled her wind, the English still preserving the same line as before. The Admiral and his Captains now held a consultation, the result of which was, that they thought the English force too much for them, and the idea of a farther attack was im- mediately abandoned. At two P. M. the Eng- lish man of war set his top- gallant fails, the fleet also made more sail, and kept edging to leewerd, the French ships still keeping upon a wind, under an easy sail; about sun- set the merchantmen were nearly six miles to leeward. At nine P. M. the Marengo tacked and stood to the fouth, and we saw no more of the fleet. There were eleven sail, one of which appear- ed to be a 74 gun ship, five to be large China ships, and five to be Bengal ships, which the French officers said were full of troops. The damage sustained by the Marengo were three men wounded, a shot through the fish of the main mast one struck the fore- yard, one through the poop, several shots through her sails, and the ship's sides full of musket balls. La Belle Poule—- Two men wounded, cross jack- yard carried away in the slings, hulled in two places under the chess- trees, and the fore- sail so much cut as to be o- bliged to shift it. The French ships now made sail for the Cape of Good Hope, and arrived in Simon's Bay on the 13th of September, where they found the Bato, of 64 guns, but in a com- pletely dismantled state, having no ship's com- pany on board. The officers and men from the Brunswick were immediately landed, and Admiral Linois gave permission to Capt. Grant, Mr Pears, and two midshipmen, to take their passage to Europe on board a Danish fhip which was upon the point • f sailing for Copenhagen. Two days before Captain Grant sailed, a ship was seen coming into the Bay, making signals of distress, and firing guns for assistance ; she proved to be the Brunswick, who had lost three anchors the preceding night, and for want of timely as- sistance from the French men of war, was driv- ing fast upon the beach, where she soon went on shore about a mile from Simon's Town ; in a few hours part of her false keel and sheathing were thrown upon the beach, by the surf which was breaking over, and when t e Dane sailed had upwards of twelve feet water in her hold. The other officers and seamen of the Bruns- wick were expected to leave the Cape in a few days in a cartel brig hired for the purpose of car- rying them to St Helena. The Dannebroog touched at St Helena oa the 7th of Odlober, at which time the Hon. Company's ships Worcester and Skelton castle had arrived, and were detained for convoy. On the 5th of November spoke his Majesty's brig Teignmouth, with five fhips in cons, any, which they supposed to be the Tottenham, Lord Eldon, and three Whalers. The Danish ship Wilhelmine Teresa was also in fight of the fleet. Lat. 22. 23, N. long. 30. Mr Pears adds—" Not knowing of the im- portance of an accurate statement of the forces at the Cape, I merely enquired their number, and was informed there were about 5000 men, principally Dutch. The inhabitants appeared very favourably disposed towards the English, but had no expectation of a visit from them." L O N D O N— DECEMBER 9. Friday, his Majesty held a Council at St James's, when an order was issued proroguing the Parliament from the 7th to the 2i( l January. After the Council, Lord Cathcart had an au- dience of his Majesty, and had the honour to kiss his Majesty's hand, on being appointed Com- mander in Chief of the English army on the Con- tinent. Lord Cathcart, accompanied by his chief Aid- de- Camp, Major Holland, set off laft night for Yarmouth, to embark for the Continent.— His Lordship is certainly appointed to the com- mand of the British troops who are to serve ia Germany. Lieutenant General Francis Dundas is to com- mand the infantry under Lord Cathcart, and Major Generals Mackenzie Frazer, Sir Arthur Wellesley, Sherbroke, and Hill, are to have the command of brigades. The Duke of Cambridge will probably leave town for Hanover on Tuesday or Wednesday, to command and organize the Hanoverian Le- gion, and the new levies forming in that electo- rate. The recruits already amount to u, oooj and as our army advances into the country, their number will doubtless increase. The Russian Swedish, and British troops, including the noverian Legion, at present in Hanover, amount to nearly 70,000 men. Lord Harrington, with his son, and two mes- sengers, arrived at Yarmouth on Saturday morn- ing ; and yesterday, after receiving a salute from the Venus frigate, which awaited them in the harbour, his Lordship and suit set sail for Cuxha- ven, in that vessel. At twelve o'clock the Venus was out of light, and as the wind blew a stiff breeze from the south- west, there is reason to be- lieve that his Lordship will have a quick passage. Mr Pitt is gone to Bath for the benefit of the waters. A house has been engaged in Argyle- street for his and Lord Bathurst's residence. Saturday intelligence reached the Admiralty, that on the 12th ult. an American was boarded off Cape St Vincent by a French ship of the line, in company with two frigates ar. d two brigs, which are supposed to have formed part of the Rochefort squadron. His Majesty's fhip Baodicea arrived at Cove last Sunday morning. During her cruize ( he fell in with the squadron of French ships which' were captured by Sir Richard Strachan a few days previous to that event, and lost sight of them in a very heavy fog. On the 2d ult. off Cape Finisterre, she fell p with eight sail of French line of battle ships, which were conjectured to be the Rochefort squadron j those she also lost in thick weather. Lord Nelson's body is to be conveyed in the Victory to tbe Nore, and from thence in 1 frigate to Greenwich. . The Board of Admiralty have at length pre- ferred a charge againd Vice Admiral sir Robert Calder, on the ground of " not having done his utmost to bring the enemy to a renewal of the action on the second day, off Cadiz." Mr Er- skine is retained in the defence of Sir R. Calder. The Urgent, which convoyed the Lord El- don and Tottenham, Indiamen, brings intelli- gence that on her way home she spoke ihe Dane- hroog Indiaman, which informed her that' when she left the Cape of Good Hope, Linois, in the Marengo, and Belle Poule, were in Table Bay. The day following the Danebroog fell in with the Tremendous of 74, Grampus of 50, and Terpsichore and Pitt frigates ; and hence there is | uft reason to hope that Admiral L'. nois is be this time in our possession, as no protection could be afforded them from the land, and the French were very unpopular at the Cape, where they could get no credit for supplies of any kind.— They had sold the Brunswick East Indiaman to enable them to purchase the necessaries they stood in need of. The death of the lamented Captain Wright, o' which event some doubts were expressed during the week, has been confirmed by a letter received by Mr Coutts from Mr Perigeaux at Paris. The cause of his death is not mentioned ; but Mr Pe- rigeaux has been requested to obtain all the offi c'ral and authentic documents on this painful oc- casion, that he can. probably for the regulation and conduct of our Government. We hear, that it is in the contemplation of Government to establish a new Order of Merit, for the reward of Naval and Military Officers who may their country. distinguish themselves in the service of On Saturday morning we receiv d New York papers to the 24th October. They state that the British have taken possession of Cape Nicholo Mole, where hey have landed troops. Hts Im- perial Majesty, Dessalines, is not dead, but great jealousy subsists between him and Christophe, whose popularity increases. An insurrection is apprehended. We feel real pleasure in Rating, that the malig- nant fever has ceased at New York. The public offices were to be opened for the dispatch ot bu siness on the 28th of October. On the 26 h, the following notice was issued by the Board of Health : " The Board of Health have the satisfaction to an- nonnce to their fellow citizens, that in their opinion e- very reasonable cause of danger from malignant fever has ceased, and that they may return to their respec- tive homes in perfect safety. The Board recommend, however, that precautionary measures be taken to ven- tilate their dwellings." The following letter contains, we believe, the lated intelligence that has been received from Malta, dated Nov 8 : " The troops were all embarked on the tit, destined for Naples, and are now lying at single anchor, ready ' o take advantage of the first shift of wind. The forces composing the expedition is 8000 men, including the Chasseurs Britan- nique and Wattevile's regiment. Twelve thou- sand Russians are already at the rendezvous ( Sy- racuse), where Sir James Craig was to join them. Transports were sent to convey them from Corfu, where the same number were ready for embarkation, as soon as these should be land- ed. Lieut. Col. Baynes. of Sir James's. Staff, has been at Corfu, and the Russian officers spoke of their troops . as the flower of their army.— They are commanded by a General Lacey, and their squadron by Admiral Greig." It is a fact decisive of the co- operation of Prus- sia in the war against France, that the recruits raising in Hanover, in British pay, and to be at- tached to the King's German Legion, are sub- sisted, from the greater part, from the Prussian ma- gazines. Lord Harrowby's reception by the Prussia 1 Cabinet has fully corresponded with the wishes of our Government. His Lordship was attend ed to Portsdam by Count Hardenberg, and WAS there fully and unreservedly possessed of the views and intentions of that Cabinet. Accounts have been received from Colonel Ramsey, who has been sent bv Government to the Austrian head- quarters, that the first division of the Hungarian Insurrection Army was in mo- tion on the 10th ult. and advancing towards the frontiers of Stiria, with a view to support th. operations of the Archduke Charles. This mass, which is excellently organised and appoint- ed, comprises upwards of 100,000 men. The Elector of Bavaria lately sent one of his Chamberlains to Berlin, with a view to excuse and justify his conduct to Austria ; but his Prus- sian Majesty refused to give him audience, and declined to answer a letter which the Elector had written to him. The Emperor Alexander arrived at the Aus- trian Court in Moravia, on the 20th ult. The contributions levied by the French on Vienna, during the three first days of their occu- pancy, amounted to thirty millions of florins. A scarcity, bordering on famine, prevails in Suabia and Franconia, in a material degree ari- sing from the consumption and devastation of the hostile armies. PLYMOUTH, Dec. 7.—- Arrived his Majesty's ships St George, of 98 guns, from Halifax ;, montagu, of 74 guns, from the Channel fleet; and- the Glory and Goliath are just come in ; the remainder of the Channel fleet passed by for Tor- bay.

A - the iJonifeur does not contain one word of official intelligence from their grand army, it is very natnral to suppose that they have nothing ad- vantageous lo communicate.— It is supposed by the French journalists, that the communications are not open, and that their couriers have been in- tercepted by the Austrian cavalry in Soabia, nndcr WoLFSKEHL, 01 that th y may be obliged to go round by Franconia. WOLFSKEHL appears to be a most active, enterprises, and skilful General. He divided his little armv into several corps, each of which he ordered to take different routes to get to the Danube, and from thence to Bohemia. Se- veral of them succeeded, but some are said to have been obliged, by AUGEREAU, to fall back to the Voralberg and the Tyrol No account had reached Paris on the 24th ult. of the French having entered Vienna, though that fact has been placed beyond a doubt by the last Hamburgh mails. ( MURAT'S division, which first entered Vienna, is said, but we doubt file truth of the assertion, to have proceeded to Presburg in Hungary, where he has established his head- quarters. As the whole Austrian and Russian force is in Moravia and Bo- hemia, we cannot see why MURAT should push • forward into Hungary. With respect to BONAPARTE himself we have 110 new information. He would probably COB- 1 tinue at Vienna until the Other divisions of his ar- my came up, unless in the mean time he should be driven from it by the allies. He would at any rate, be very cautious in advancing in the face of the large force which he would find opposed to hiin. There is no further information in these papers respecting the movements of the Archduke CHARLES. NEV, it is stated, had marched from Inspruck, and was pursuing the Archduke JOHN ; but almost in the same breath it is said, that the object of NEY was to form a junction with BER- NAUOTTE. This, perhaps, he might not find it very easy t » effect, and if he did, the united divi- sions of NEY and BKRNADOTTE would be insuffi- cient to intercept the progress of the unbroken ar- my of the Archduke CHARLES, with whom the Archduke JOHN might then unite his forces. A proclamation was published at Venice by the Go- vernor- General, announcing that 24,000 Russians were expected there on the 3d ult. These troops, with the strong Austrian garrison previously left there bv the Archduke CHRALES, would be suffi- cient to give employment to a large portion of M ASSUNA'S army, who, of course, would not venture to continue his inarch without leaving a force before Venice greatly superior to the Austrian and Russian troops in that city. Throughout the Austrian dominions the most determined and patriotic spirit appears to be dis- played by, the inhabitants. In theTyrol, the French had not only to contcnd with the regular Austrian troops and the brave militia, but were even tired upon by the women and girls. It will probably be found t. iat NEY was glad to make his reireat out of ihe Tyrol, for which his proposed junction with BITR^ ADOTTE serves as ail excuse. The Parisian journalists labour to persuade the readers of their lucubrations, that the exertions of Pfussia will be contincd to drawing a cordon of troops from the frontiers of Holland to the frontiers of Bohemia, for the purpose of maintaining her neutrality. The accounts in the French papers are at va- riance with all the other intelligence that has been received from the Continent; it was strongly re- ported when the latest accounts left Rotterdam 011 the 5th, that Prussia had beguu to co- operate with the allies, and haJ gained some advantages over the French. Among other reports that prevailed in London, it was stated, that a tumult had taken place in Pa- ris, occasioned by the regulations adopted in con- sequence of the stoppage of the banks, and which hail drawn the EMPEROR to the metropolis ; he having left the sole command df the army in Ger- many to Prince MURAT.— French funds bg\.

WILLIAM CONYNGHHM PLUNKETT, Attorney General in Ireland, has been admitted a Member of the Privy Council in Ireland. An active canvass is begun for the representa- tion of the borough of Berwick in Parliament. The candidates who have already darted are, Lieut- Colonel LOCHART, of the Lanark militia, and Sir JOHN CALLENDAR. It is believed - that Colonel ORD, of Longridge, and the Hon. Capt. BENNET, of Chillingham Castle, also mean to of- fer themselves. The officers, non- commissioned officers, drum- mers and privates of the Dunbar battalion of vo- lunteer infantry, have unanimously contributed wo days pay of their respective ranks, towards the fund for the relief of the widows, orphans, and relatives of those brave men who fell in the late glorious naval victories. On Saturday last, the Judge of Police senten- ced Elizabeth Boyd to Bridewell for 60 days, the first 30 to be fed upon bread and water, for keep- ing a disorderly house, which was frequented by very young girls. Monday the Judge sentenced Janet Brownlee to the same place, and same pu- nishment, for enticing and carrying the young girls to Boyd's house. On Tuesday the Judge of Police sentenced MARY REID, to Bridewell, for stealing some ar- ticles of wearing apparel, and fined a woman for purchasing other articles which had been stolen. Same day, a person in a respectable situation, was bound over to keep the peace, for maltreat- ing his wife, and turning her out of doors.— And a parcel of idle boys were severely repremanded for repeatedly obstructing and insulting the boys belonging to one of the hospitals, on their way to church.— The Judge, upon this occasion, stated, that if these or any other boys should hereafter be found assembling in sets or parties, and mo- lesting the peaceable inhabitants, especially on the lord's day, they would be punished in a most examplary manner. Yesterday, BETTY BAUCHOP was sentenced to Bridewell for stealing books from a shop in Ni- colson's Street, and MARY THOMPSON for steal- ing bottles from a house in George's Street. Several persons have of late been fined for al- lowing their vents to get on fire by neglecting to have them regularly swept. The Judge also da- ted, that if it should be found that foul vents were in any case occasioned by the chimney sweeps not cleaning properly, he would certainly fine them also. The Earl Moira cutter, Capt. MELVILLE, in the service of the Board of Excise, on the 3d inft. at three P. M. fell in with a large lugger off Bervie. About eight got alongside, and hailed, but receiving no answer fired into her, which the lugger instantly returned with three cheers, and an engagement took place, which continued for an hour a » d fifteen minutes within musket- shot, when the lugger drew a- head, and left off firing. The cutter continued firing her chace- guns so SERMON. On Sabbath Evening next, at Six o'clock, the Rev. Mr PEDDIE will preach, in his own Meeting- house, Bristo Street, the Annual Sermon for the EDINBURGH RELIGIOUS TRACT SOCIETY. This Society publish a great variety of short Religious Tracts, adapted for general distribution, and which, for that purpose, are sold on very low terms. They occa- sionally distribute considerable quantities having merous applications for them from different places where good has been done by them, or where there is a pro- spect of their being useful; but, from the smallness of tie Society's funds, they have not hitherto been able to supply these applications, or to make their plan l'o ex- tensively beneficial as they with. To assist them in this, they depend on the liberality of the Friends of Religion, which they hope will be exerted on this occasion. — BIRTH.— On Sunday, of a son, the Lady of Lieut. Col.

On Thursday last, the day appointed for a gene- ral thanksgiving, there was a collection at the pa- riffi church, and in the English Chapel, Kelso, for the relief of the widows and children of those who fell in the late glorious naval victories— 30!. 9s. was collected at the former, and 18I. 9s. 6d. at the latter. Previous to divine service, the East- ern troop of Roxburghshire Yeomanry Light Dra- goons met, and unanimously voted fifty guineas for the same benevolent purpose. The Western Troop of Roxburghshire Yeomanry Light Dra- goons having also met, at Jedburgh, on the same day, Ordered their paymaster sergeant to trans- mit fifty guineas to the Patiotic Fund, at Lloyds'. Sunday night Kelso was alarmed by the cry of 1 fire,' originating from the following melancholy circumstance:— A. young women heating a mix- ture of turpentine and wax, unfortunately set it on fire ; it boiling over upon herself, and another old woman, the latter succeedcd in extinguishing the flames which fell into her lap, but the former rushed into the street in a blaze ; before the fire was extinguished, her head, ncck, arms, and legs, were burnt in so dreadful a mannner that she now lies without any prospect of recovery. JANET PALMER, or Mrs THOMSON, was last week committed to jail by the Magistrates of Glasgow, charged by the Fiscal with having at- tempted to utter, in a shop in Gallowgate, two half- crown pieces, a dollar and shilling, knowing them to be base and counterfeited. On searching the prisoner's person at tbe Police Office, imme- diately on her being apprehended, other thirteen pieces of base metal, resembling the shilling coin, were found upon her. All these pieces ard form- ed of copper, thinly covered with silver. Some of the shillings are plain, and others a little head- ed, with a faint impression of part of a head on one side. The half- crowns are plain on the one side, and have on the other side the impression of the head of WILLIAM III almost as plain as if newly from the mint. The dollar is dated 1794, and has the impression of the head of CHARLES IV. of Spain, and is in the whole coarsely exe- cuted. It is believed that there are a great many of these pieces in circulation. The Magiftrates of Glasgow lately ordered ROBERT GREY, and JOHN CAMPBELL, two young boys, to be committed to bridewell, for stealing some articles from a coach- house in town ; and at same time, ANN MITCHELL, an old offender, was sent there for six months, and then ordered to go into banishment, convicted of the crimes of theft and returning from banish- ment. OWEN GARVIN and EDWARD SHORT were, last Saturday tried before the Magistrates of Glas gow for issuing base money, as mentioned in a former paper ; and on account of their candour in pleading guilty, and their having enlisted into the army, they were only fined in a guinea each, besides being found liable to the expences of the prosecucton.
