® itljattt| 3tcm erttirg Vol. LXXXV. No. 41. Keadv Money is expected { with Advertisements. SATURDAY, December 14, 1805. PRICE S Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. LONDON, December 10. SATURDAY'S Gazette contains an Order of Council to further prorogue the meeting of Parliament, to Tuesday the 21st of January next; ami the Lord Chamberlain's orders for a eourt morning, of one week, for his late Serene High- ness Frederick Augustus, Duke of Brunswick, jeeond cousin to his Majesty. The Uazette likewise contains the appointment of the Rev. Thomas Rennell, Doctor in Divinity, to the Deani v of the Cathedral Church of Win- chester, void by the death of Doctor Robert Holmes. Paris Papers to the 00th ult. and the Hamburgh Corrcspondenten to the 29th', were received yes- terday.— Ihe French papers contain live bulletins of the Grand Army, in regular series from the 21st ( the last which had been received), and one from tlte Army of Italy. By these it appears that Bo- naparte " has not " been " able to bring the Austrian and Russian army in Moravia to a general action. The greatest advantage he has obtained consists iu the immense stores of every kind, particularly of artillery and ammunition, which were left at Vienna: two thousand pieces of cannon, and 100,000 stand of arms! Two of the bulletins are occupied with an account of the battle with the Russians at Kreins on tlve 11th, which is narrated and re- narrated, in order to persuade the Parisians that the French'had the advantage in it. Mortier, it appears, only received a slight wound. For the first time the French say " On our side the loss zcas- cmsidcrulle." They, however, claim the victory; and, least the public should not thus comprehend the matter, the cannon of Paris were tired on the Stith, and the theatres thrown open, although by their previous papers, the news had arrived there several days before. [ This is the battle, of which we last week gave the account from the Imperial Court Gazette.] The ' effrontery with which the French claim the above victory, when there is uo doubt of their having suffered a defeat, not only shews the ve- racity of their official documents, and the reliance which ought to lie' placed upon them, but places in a very questionable light an account given in one of the bulletins, which states, " that the Russian army oflvred to capitulate, upon condition of being allowed to quit Germany unmolested, and to return to Russia; which Bonaparte refused to grant;" which, considering the channel from whence the intelligence.. was received, cannot be considered, for the present, in any other light than French gasconade, especially when the pre- vious conduct of the Russians is considered. There might have been an offer made to Bona- parte, on the part of the Allies, of certain terms of peace, on his acceptance of which the Russians undertook to quit Germany; but that the Russian Commander in Chief should propose a capitula- tion, for the mere purpose of being allowed to lead his army out of Germany, cannot be believed, particularly " as his army does not appear to have been in the least danger of being forced to any such measure. These very Russians who had just offered to ca- pitulate, were, after the convention had been signed by the Russian Generals, marching with a part of their army towards Zuaim, and the rest w-> re about to follow them and escape, ft is truly remarkable, that at this very place to which they were uiare.';' tg, according to the French ac- count, for the purpose of escaping, a part of the French army was stationed, and Bonaparte himself advanced his head- quarters there on the seven- teenth of November; which is sufficient proof that the Russians, instead of endeavouring to escape or retreat, or being under the necessity of capitulating, were advancing upon the French army. That they did advance upon the French army is clearly proved by the succeeding para- graphs of the' bulletin, which state an action to have taken place between the French and Russians at Tuntersdorff, in which the French, as usual, claim the victory, and state, that the Russians lost two thousand killed and two thousand prisoners. Bonaparte's head- quarters remained at Zuaim; and not an inch of ground appears to have been gained by the French. The bulletin goes on to state, that, " The Russians retreated towards Brunn, and our advanced guard pursued them half nay; but the Emperor having learnt that the Emperor of Austria was there, ; wished to girea proof of his respectful- that Prince, and halted On the Vith."— The reason for this respectful halt is obvious. The Archduke Ferdinand has 20,000 men on his left flank, or rather in his rear, and is now advancing to the Danube. The bulletin from the Army of Italy informs us, that the Archduke Charles had effected his retreat to Laybach, but was still closely pressed by Massena. The Hamburgh Paper is very explicit in regard to the decided advantage of the Russians over the French in the affair of Krems; and particularly dilates upon the brilliant offurt of General fan cration, who cut his way through a body of the French. The same paper informs us, that llara- guav d'Hilliers, who had made an incursion into Bohemia, had been met by the Arehdukc Ferdi- nand, and obliged to retreat.— On the 22J ult. the head- quarters of the Russian army were at Wis- chaw, between Ohnutz and Brunn.— The Imperial family is at Olmutz, but they intend removing their residence to Troppau, as the former place is to be put in a state of . siege. Count Ilauifwitz has arrived at the place of his destination. It is further stated, that on the 35th ult. his Prussian Majesty received a letter of great importance from the Emperor of Russia; and that the march of the former Sovereign, with the gar- rison of Berlin, for the army, fcas expected to take place immediately. General Don has issued the following Procla- mation to the inhabitants of Hanover, inviting them to join his standard :— PROCLAMATION, Addressed to the Inhabitants of the Electorate of Hanover. " I, George Don, Lieutenant- General in the service of his Majesty of the United Kingdoms ot Great- Britain and Ireland, Commander in Chief of a corps of British troops on the Continent, hold it for my first duty, upon my arrival in his Majesty's German States, to make known and declare, hereby, to the inhabitants of the Electorate of Hanover, that the principal object of the troops I have the honour to command, is, to elfect the evacuation ot his Majesty's German S'ates, and to undertake the defence of the sr. me against the enemy. '< The well- known discipline of the troops under my command, is to me the best assurance ot their good conduct towards the subjects of their lawful Sovereign; but, contrary to my expectation hould any weft. grounded complaint be brought before me, I shall investigate its merits with impartiality, and remedy the same accordingly without delay. " His Britannic Majesty, mv gracious Sovereign, is convinced, that his beloved German subjects will receive his troops in tiw most friendly wanner; I, therefore, in his Majesty's name, and by his express command, invite all persons, whose circumstances will permit, to enter into the military service, par- ticularly those who have previously belonged to the Hanoverian army. I invite them, without delay, to join the British standard ; where 1 shall ensure to them every privilege attached to his Majesty's German Legion, With our forces thus united, we shall then oppose a check to the unlawful demands of the ene- my; and we may thus the more confidently reckon upon the good consequences of our ellbrts, being armed with the justice of our cause in behalf of our King and our Country. " Given at Stadt, Nov. 20, 1805. " GEORGE DON, Lieutenant- General." Saturday were received New York Papers to the 26lii of October inclusive. They state that the British have taken possession of Cape Nichola Mole, in St. Domingo, where they have landed troops. His Imperial Majesty, Dessalines, is not dead, but great jealousy subsists between him and Christophe, whose popularity increases. An in- surrection is apprehended.— These papers bring the pleasing intelligence of the yellow fever having ceased at New York. Lord Cathcart, who is to have the chief command of the British troops in the North of Germany, left town on Sunday. He will be followed by the Duke of Cambridge in the course of the week. The departure of his Royal Highness, who is to take the field at the'head of the Hanoverian Legion, is only postponed in consequence of the incomplete state of his camp equipage. Lieutenant- General Francis Dundas is to command the infantry under Lord Cathcart, and Major- Generals Mackenzie Frazer, Sir Arthur Welleslev, Sherbroke, and Hill, are to have the command of brigades. Captain Grant, who is arrived in town, stated, on Saturday, at the India- House, that, whilst a pri- soner on board the Marengo, in September, that ship, and the Belle Poulc, off the island of Ceylon, fell in with Admiral Troubridge, in the Blenheim, with about ten sail of outward- bound Indiamen in company. The French immediately bore down to attack them; a partial action directly commcnced between Sir Thomas's ship and the Marengo; but was soon discontinued bv the latter, which es- caped under the cover of night. Sir Thomas was obliged to relinquish the pursuit, in consequence of the Belle I'oule having gone in chase of the Indiamen. It is stated that it was the Naval Telegraph, lately invented by Sir Home Popham, which Lord Nelson used. It was by this new telegraph that Lord Nelson, at a distance, out of sight of Cadiz, was enabled to communicate with his cruisers close in with that port, and to know what the enemy were doing, as accurately as if he had been on the spot; while he was so far away that the enemy did not believe him to be within reach. It was by this telegraph, too, that he said to his fleet, as it was going into action, " England expects that every man will do his duty." The Gratitude, of Spain.— The following is an extract of a letter from Vice- Admiral Lord Col- lingwood, to a near relative, received on Thursday last, dated on board the Queen, November 2: " To alleviate the miseries of the wounded as much as in my power, I sent a flag to the Marquis Solatia ( Governor, of Cadiz) to offer him his wounded Nothing can exceed the gratitude expressed by him for this act of humanity. All this part of Spain is in an uproar of praise and thankfulness to the English. Polaiia sent ine a present of wine : and we have free intercourse with the shore. Judge of the footing we are on, when I tell you he offered me his hospitals, and pledged the Spanish honour for the care and cure of our wounded men. Our officers and men who were wrecked in some of the prize ships were received like divinities— all the country on the beach to receive them, the priests and women distributing wine, bread, and fruit amongst them, and the soldiers turned out of their barracks to make room for them; whilst their allies, the French, were left to shift for themselves, with a guard over them, to prevent their doing mischief. All the Spaniards speak of us in terms of adoration." The total of the subscriptions received on Sa- turday, at Lloyd's, from the liberal contributions of Thursday, was ,£. 11,600. Many returns hail not then been received. When these are completed, and those from the country received, there is no doubt but that they will amount to at least £. 50,000. On Thursday upwards of « f. 400 were collected at the Surrey Chapel, generally known by the Rev. Rowland Hill's Chapel, for the patriotic fund. In the morning 160 were collected. After the evening service, the gentlemen who held the plates cast up the two collections, to the amount of £ 360. One of the gentlemen observed a piece of paper sealed up, and it was supposed to contain a penny piece. On opening it, the paper proved to be a of. 100 bank note, wrapped round a new halfpenny. On the note was written—" A Widow's Mite." Among the instances of liberality to the widows and orphans of the sailors on the day of Thanks- giving, we have heard of none more pleasing than that of the* Blue- coat boys, who raised among thein of .20. The Jews on Thursday met the solemnity of the occasion with strict and becoming observance. Their shops were shut, and the collections made at their different synagogues, but particularly at Duke's- Placc, were of the most munificent de- scription. General Willot, a French emigrant, having lent large sums of money to some erf the Nobles, his countrymen, at excessive interest, they, in return prosecuted qui turn actions agrinst him for usury, m the Court of King's- Bench; and, on Wednes- day, obtained a verdict with .£. 23,200 damages, being the amount of the penalties on treble the sums lent. After this severe deduction, the Ge- neral is said to have ,£. 10,000 left. On Friday, Mr. Samwell obtained a verdict, in the Court of King's Bench, against Mr. Wright, stable- keeper, with £. 150 damages and costs, Wright's servants, driving four horses in a carriage carrying the Marchioness of Bath to Windsor, carelessly ran against, aud caught the wheel o Mr. Samwell's chaise, in Brentford, threw him out broke his collar- bone, & c.— Mr. Erskinc, for the defendant, said the action was wrong laid : that it should have been against the Marchioness of Bath; this, and some other quibbling, were resisted by the Court and Jury, who gave the verdict as above. In the Court of Common Pleas, on Wednesday, a verdict, with damages and costs, went against Mr. Willan, coaChmaster, for the running down, and unhorsing a gentleman on Finchley Common, by the old Northampton coach. The horse had its thigh broken by the wheel of the coach, and was rendered unserviceable.— The coaclnnan was on the wrong side of the road. A few days ago a common brewer was convicted before the magistrates at Newcastle, in the mid- brewing of beer a certain compound ingredient, for the purpose of heightening the colour of the liquor. The long- expected contest between the cham- pions Belcher and Pearse, commonly called the Chicken, took place on Friday. The combatants, attendc ! by their patrons and friends, met at Blvthe White Water, near Mr. iVIellish's seat, at the village of Blythe, in Nottinghamshire. Some time after twelve the combatants entered a rope- ring, with their seconds, Bill Ward and Gibbons for the Chicken, and Bob Watson and Dick Weale for Belcher. After stripping, the combatants de- posited a stake of twenty guineas each on their own account, and the Belcher handkerchief was placed with another pattern of a blue ground, worn by die Chicken, as the distinguishing colours of the parties.— Seventeen rounds were fought; in the course of which, about the twelfth round, Belcher appeared weak and feeble; and from that to the seventeenth, his strength declined, and he gave in.— The Chicken, more than once, declared he could have killed Belcher, by throwing him over the rope. It was thought Belcher had a rib broken, but. it afterwards proved not so.— Belcher experienced much inconvenience during the fight from the loss of an eye, of which lie was deprived some time ago, playing at tenuis.— The number of spectators was unprecedented, notwithstanding the scene of action was 152 miles front town. There were present many noblemen and gentle- men of distinction, from town and country. Anlong the principal losers are, Messrs. Fletcher Read, & c. & c. A subscription was set on foot by Jackson, at the close of the contest, for Belcher, which was liberally supported. A few days ago, at Ilebtlen- bridge, in the neighbourhood of Halifax, as the corpse of the wife of a labouring man lay in the coffin previous to interment, the afflicted husband drew near to take a last farewel of the once- loved partner of his joys and his sorrows— at this awful moment, when his eye was directed to the inanimate re- mains of his departed wife, he suddenly drppt down, and, before medical assistance could be procured, expired.— They had been married fifty years, and what is strikingly remarkable in the annals of the marriage state, during so long a period, the noise of dissention had never been heard between them. A respite, during pleasure, has been sent to Newgate, for Burroughs, under sentence of death for forgery. To be LETT, And entered upon immediately, READY FCRNtSIlF.

MBIR, 1805, in order to take into Consideration the Propriety ot petitioning Parliament for the Repeal - of the 30th and 33d Sections of tiie Act of 42d George 111. Chap. 38, proh biting the watering or sprinkling Grain making into Malt upon the floor; and also for removing the Doubts at present entertained concerning the Right of appealing to the Justices in Quarter- Sessions from Convictions by two Magistrates; ( WILLIAM PHILPOT, Esq. in the Chair;; It ivas unanimously resolved, That the Operation of the above Clauses has been found, by Experience, to be productive of the most injurious Consequences to the Manufacture of Malt, and to subject the fair Trader to great Difficulties and Hardships, without any adequate Advantage to the Revenue. That the'Moisture imbibed by the Grain in the Steep, however long immersed, is found to he incom- petent to the Purpose ot keeping up sufficient Vege- tation to carry the Acrospirc as far as the End of the Grain, which is the true Criterion of perfect Malt; and that the Restriction imposed by the above Clauses against recruiting the languid Vegetation, by wetting the Grain upon the Floor previous to the Expiration of twelve Days, renders it impossible to manufacture a perfect Article; whereby great Loss is sustained by the Maltster, and still greater Injury by the. Con- sumer: And that this Meeting are not aware of any Disadvantage which could arise to the Revenue, were the Makers of Malt permitted, as heretofore, to sprinkle their Grain upon the Floor; the Officers of Excise having the Power of taking their Guages in any Stage of Operation between the Steep and the Kiln. That, independent of the Evil above stated, the most oppressive and serious Grievances to the Manufactories of Malt arise, from the Facilities and Temptations which the first- mentioned Clause, in particular, aiibius for unfounded and vexatious Prosecutions. That the naturally moist Appearance of the Grain upon the Floor, for several Days after bi- ing thrown from the Cistern, added to tht Fact of the Officers participating in the Penalties, enables and encourages such as are either ignorant of the Process, or inclined to take undue Advantages, by availing themselves of that particular Stage ot Operation, when such natural Appearances may seem to justify Suspicion, to exhibit Informations against the Maltster, from which no Vigilance can guard, and no Innocence protect him ; upon which, Convictions are accustomed to be founded on Matter of Opinion only, and from which no A- ppeal is to be obtained; and that these vexatious and ground- less Informations have of late become so frequent, from the Facility with which Charges of this Description can be established, as to amount to a most grievous Evil, and to become a Source of the most serious Alarm. That the foregoing Hardships are considerably aggra- vated, by . the Doubts which are entertained concern- ing the Right of appealing from Convictions under the above Act to the Justices assembled a< the General Quarter- Sessions of the Peace: A Privilege extended to all other Ollences relating to the Duties on Malt; and from which,_ as to this particular Otience. upon which Decisions, tor the i'. easons above stated, must lie so peculiarly liable to Error, this Meeting cannot con- ceive it was tiie Intention of the Legislature to exclude them. That to obtain Redress of tile Grievances before- mentioned is an Object of the highest Importartce; and for that Purpose, that a Petition be presented 10 the Honourable the House of Commons, setting forth the same, and praying for such Relief as to them, in their Wisdom, shall seem fit; and that the following Gentlemen be requested to withdraw and prepare such Petition, viz. John Edgar Rust, Esq. Edmund Bar- ber, Esq. John Marriot, Esq. Mr. John Woodcock, Mr. Nathaniel Byles, Mr. William Smart, Mr. John Byles, Mr. George Edwards, Mr. John Boby, and Mr. Martin Harsant. And the above Gentlemen having withdrawn, and afterwards returned with a Petition prepared, and the same having been read, Resolved unanimously. That the said Petition is approved by this Meeting; and that the same be signed by each Individual present, and be' forthwith . sent to such Maltsters and Makers of Malt as have not been able to attend, for their respective Signatures. That a Subscription be immediately entered into, for the^ urpose ot raising a Fund to provide for the Expences already incurred, and which may hereafter arise in the future Progress of this Business; and that " the Chairman be appointed Treasurer. That the following Gentlemen, or any seven of them, be appointed a Committee for managing the said Fund, and forwarding the Purposes of this Meeting, viz. William Philpot, Estj. John Edgar Rust, Esq. Ed- mund Barber, Esq. George Archer, Esq. John Mar- riot, Esq. George Brook Keer. Esq.

That Mr. R. G. White and Mr. R Crabtree, of Halesworth, be appointed Solicitors, for rendering such professional Assistance to the Committee as may be necessary in the Course of this Business. That the " above Resolutions be signed by the Chair- man, and advertised in the I pswich Journal, the Bury, Norwich, and Chelmsford Papers, and in the Star, Courier, and Commercial Chronicle.

Jacob, Peterborough. 63* The first Edition of this Work consisted ot 5000 Copies, and a second Edition of all the early Parts being called for in this early Stage of its Pub- lication, an adequate Idea may be formed of the Esti- mation in which it is held by the Public. Tha following are its principal Recommendations;— 1. The Plan of this Work is intended as an Im- provement upon similar Publications, being'a Medium between the Plan of a Dictionary and that of Treatises, and comprehending the Advantages of each. The History and Outlines of each Science are given under its appropriate Title; and its various Divisions, which can be more satifactorily explained in separate Ar- ticles than in the Body of a Treatise, are introduced under their respective Terms, This is indeed the only proper Plan ot a Dictionary intended for Refer- ence when Information is required, which is expected to be found under its most ready and familiar Term in' the Alphabet. 2. The Editor is of acknowledged Learning and In- dustry, and of unquestionable Experience in this Department of Literary Labour; the greater Part of his Life having been employed in editing and im- proving the last Edition of Mr. Chambers's Dic- tionary, and in collecting Materials for the present Work. 3. Among the Gentlemen who have engaged to con- tribute their Assistance to this Work, are many of distinguished Eminence, and the List is continually augmenting; no Opportunity being neglected to engage - the Co- operation of any Gentleman whose Services can be ot real Utility. 4. The Embellishments are of a very superior De- scription, and will form, when completed, an incom- parably more elegant and correct Set of scientific and • other Plates than | jas ever been produced. The scien- tific Subjects are engraved by Mr. LOWRY, whose accurate Knowledge, and improved Method of Eiecu- • tion, in this Branch of the Art, have not been equalled. The Subjects of Natural History, & c. are chiefly engraved by Mr. MILTON and Mr. SCOTT, with corresponding Taste and Beauty. The Drawings are almost wholly new. 5. The Maps will be double the Size usually given in similar Publications, and are drawn and engraved under the Direction of Mr. ARROWSMITH. 6. A Part, or Half Volume, Price 18s. each, has hitherto been published once in' about four Months; and, in Consequence of some Arrangements lately adopted, the Public may with Confidence rely upon a more frequent Publication. 7.

The onlyarticie of the least importance is a Augereau, announcing the capture of the corps ot Generals Jellachich and Wolfskel, by capitulation. As this is not stated in the bulletins, or 111 the Moniteur, but in one of the minor Journals, there is some reason to suppose that the intelligence is false. However, the position of affairs 111 the Tyrol was such as to render the event not im- probable. If it be real, it is a circumstance of very seconday importance, and more than com- pensated by the victory of the Russians at Krems.

Fortunately, how- ever, about the same time that the wind abated a little, a plentiful supply of water was procured, but not until the flames had communicated, by the wooden bridge, to the dwelling- house, and, at the same instant, were seen to burst through every window ill the house, from the top to the bottom. In less than an hour and a half the whole inside of the premises were consumed to the foundation, leaving only the bare walls and a few rafters.— Finding it impossible to save Mr. Gillet's property, the fit omen's attention was directed to the pre servation of the adjoining houses; and, by playing on them, from six or seven engines, in all directions, with a plentiful supply of water, they nearly ac- complished their purpose; but not before the Vac- cine Inoculation House, which joined Mr. Gillet's, and some others, were much injured. Some time after ten o'clock, the fire was very much reduced; and before eleven all apprehensions of farther dan- ger was dissipated. The di tuns beat to arms, and a large body of the 3d, 4th, and 5th regiments of London Volunteers, the Temple Corps, and several others, were mustered in a few moments under their respectiv e officers. By their timely exertions, the firemen were enabled to act with effect, and the unhappy inhabitants, who had moved their furni- ture into the . street, were protected from plunder. — We have not been able to ascertain from what cause this dreadful accident originated, but are informed, that it arose from some sparks ot fire coming down the chimney, and communicating with some paper in the warehouse. Neither have we learned what quantity of property has been destroyed ; but from the immense business of Mr. Gdlet, and the quantity of paper, types, priuting- rtisuis, 6cc. which he must necessarily use, we con . Hide the loss must be immense; exclusive of the house, building-, and furniture, which were of considerable value.

He was advised at last to try your LEAKE'S PILLS ; hc did so, adhering strictly to the Directions given with them; he had not taken more than two Boxes before he found an Alteration for the better; this encouraged him to proceed, and by taking a few Boxes mote he found his Appetite and Strength gra- dually return, ana is now as Healthy and stout as any Man 1 know.
