LONDON, SATURDAY, DEC 28. THE following intelligence was on Thurfday received at the Poft- office : " A French fquadron of four fail of the line was feen in lat. 47. 15. long. 10. 30. on the IQth ititt. fleering Well; they had that day attacked two Englilli fiiips of war, with feventeen merchantmen and tranfport veffels under convoy : particulars not yet learned. The Alcmene frigate arrived at Plymouth on the 24th, with fimilar intel- ligence, when Admiral Cornwallis, with four fail of the line, failed to the weltward, in purfuit of the enemy." The French force alluded to is fuppofed to be the Rochfort fquadron, and the Britifli convoy chafed by it, that which failed from Cork on the 12th inft. bound to the Weft Indies, confifting of 22 fail of merchant- men, under the protection of the Arethufa, Boadicea, and Wafp. Capt. Jafon, of the American fhip Peggy, has written a letter upon the fame fubjett, the fnbfiance of which was on Thurlday pofted at Lloyd's, viz.— " The Peggy, arrived at Plymouth from Virginia, fpoke on the l/ tb, in lat. 46. 29. long. 11.4. a brig, from Dublin to Madeira, one of a fleet from Cork to the Weft Indies, under convoy of two ( hips of war, who informed the Peggy, that the fleet had been chafed by four fail of the line, when every iliip made the beft of their way for their refpedive ports." A copy of an Englifli paper, printed at Paris, under the title of the Argus, has been fent out from Boulogne in an open boat, containing an account of the battle of the 2d, and of an armiftice having been concluded between the hoftile armies. The paper is in the pofleflion of Government, and the following are the circumltances under which it is ft a ted to have been ob- tained :— The boat drifted on Wednefday into our fleet off Boulogne, and was picked up by the Acute gun- brig. No perl'oii was on board, but on examining the boat, there was found a parcel encloled in a tin cafe, containing the Argus of the 17th inft. ( or rather the fuppleme it to the Argus of that date) directed to " Mr. Thos. Rullell, mer- chant, Haftings." It is not known whether any perfon ot this name refides at Haftings, but the paper was of courfe immediately forwarded to Government. lhis paper, which has thus fo very oddly found it way hither, contains the 30th and 31fi bulletins of the French grand army, the laft of which is dated frotn Aufterlitz, the 5th. It gives, however, the particulars of the battle of the 2d only, which it fta'. es to have been moft obftinate and bloody. It further Hates, that the Ruffian army had been reduced to 40,000 men, and that in confequence of the battle, the Emperor. of Germany had fo- licited an armiftice, for the purpofe of negociating a feparate peace, to which Bonaparte had acceded. 1' be terms are not flared, except that one of the conditions is, that the Rullian troops fhatl return to Rullia, The armiftice is ftated to have been con- cluded on the 4th. It has been fnggefted that this paper, the Argus, which has been conveyed in fo extraordinary a manner to this country, is probably a forgery; that fonie perfons on this fide of the water, wilhing to influence the tranfaciions of the Stock Exchange, have procured a pretended fupplement of the Argus to be printed, and fent adrift in a boat, in fuch a manner as to be picked up by our fquadron off Boulogne. Among other circumflances which have been ftated as reafons to induce fufpicicin that the fupplement of the Argus may be a forgery, the ignorance of the people of Hoi land, fo late as the 20th, of any events after the battle of the 2d, is not the leatt impor- tant. That this is a fafit, has been aliened on the authority of fome American gentle- men, who failed from Rotterdam on the 21ft, and had read the Amfterdam Gazettes to the 20th, without finding in them any accounts of an armftice, or of battles fub- fequent to that of the 2d inft. In addition to this, a letter has been received in this country by a General in his Majelly's fer- vice, from a perfon of great refpettability at Berlin, and if the date of this letter be corre6t, it is impoflible to place any credit whatever in the ftory of an armiftice having been concluded between the French and the allied armies. Had fuch an important event taken place, it would furely have been known in Berlin 011 the 11th. The letter is as follows : — " GENERAL, Berlin, Dec. 11. " On Sunday and Monday we were iu the moll violent agitation, and felt the moll ferious uneafinefs wilh refpect to the refult of the battle which took place onthe2d and 3d of this month, from the details of which it appeared to be unfavourable to the Ruffians, and that the perfon of the Em- peror was in danger, he having charged in perfon at ( he head of his guards. We were two days without receiving any intelligence. It appears that the centre of the Rullian army was broken, by means of a malted battery of eighteen pieces of cannon, which made a dreadful flaughter on that point.— Twelve hundred men of the Emperor's guard were killed; but on the 4th, Gen. Kuiufow, the brave Bagrathion, and the Prince of Lichtenftein, turned the light wing of the French, and reftored the battle. " The Ruffians, animated by the prefence of their brave Emperor, and by the danger to which he was expofed, overthrew the French, and obtained a complete victory.— They retook the artillery, and the prifoners which the French had taken on the 2d and 3d. Our Coart was in the grfeatell alarm, but the Queen received yefterday a courier from Count Haugwitz, which completely tranquillized her. " We are allured that orders have been given to the Prnflian army to attack the French. " I have the honour, & c." A paflenger in the Alfred, Capt. Ander- fon, lately arrived at fielfafl, from Tenerilfe, dates, that he left that place on the 20th of OiStober, and the Canary Iflands on the 11th of November, at which time there was no account of the Rochfort fquadron, nor of any prizes. This is a fnfBcient refutation of an article fent from Bonrdeanx fome time ago, of 23 velfels being carried in there by the French. There is a report very prevalent, that the Arethufa, 38, with the Weft India Convoy, outward bound, fell in with the Ruffian fqtiadron of three fail of the line and a frigate ; miftakitig them for enemies, and not anfwering the Arethufa's private fignals, ( he difperfed the convoy by figtial before the Ruffians hoifted their colours, and dif- covered themfelves to be friends. Surely there fliould be ( if the above account be correct, or indeed if not fo) fome fignal code eftablillied between us and our allies. Several of the tranfports belonging lo the fecond expedition, which failed laft week from the Downs, have been again obliged to return. Five veifels are arrived at Har- wich, two of them with damage. Portfmoutb, Dec. 27. — This afternoon Vice- Admiral Sir J. B. Warren arrived from London, and went oft'immediately on board the Foudroyant, of 80 guns, C. ipt. Douglas, now lying at St. Helen's, and is expe£ ted to fail in the morning with the following ( Lips under his command : Lo. idon Capt. Dunn. Namur 74 Capt. Halsted. Repulse 74 Capt. I- egge. Hero 74 Capt. Gardner. Canada 74 Capt. Harvey. Ramillies 74 Capt. l i kmore. Illustrious 74 Capt. Shield. C'ourageux 74 Capt. Rissett. Saracen sloop of war Capt. Prevost. His Majefty, in a lelter addle fled to the Board of Admiralty, after lamenting the lofs of the gallant Nelfon, and acknowledg- ing the eminent fervices he had performed for his country, defired that his thanks may be immediately forwarded to Lord Colling- wood, for his con.; utl in and after the battle of Trafalgar. Expretlive alfo of his Majefty's afl'urance, that in the fervices he fliould hereafter be called 011 to perform, the country would recognize in him the heroifm and virtues of his predeceflor. The plate upon Lord NelIon's coffin is gold.— The dimenfions are to be thirteen inches by nine, the fame fize as the Duke of Gloucefter's. His Majefty's goldfmith is preparing it. The following inlcription is to be upon it :— DEPOSITUM. The Most Noble Lord HORATIO NET. SON, Viscount and Baron Nelson of the Nile, and of Burnham Thorpe, in the county of Norfolk. Baron Nelson of the Nile, and of Hilborough, in the said county. Knight of the Most Honourable Order of the Hath ; Vice- Admiral of the White Squadron of the Fleet; and Commander in Chief ofhis Majesty's Ships and Vessels in the Mediterranean. Also, Duke of Bronte, irt Sicily; Knight Grand Cross of the Sicilian Order of St. Ferdinand, and of Merit. Mertiber of the Ottoman Order of the Crescent; and Knight Grand Commander of the Order of St. Joachim. Born September 29th, 1758. Afret* a series of transcendant and heroic services, this gallant Admiral fell gloriously, in the mo- ment of a brilliant and decisive Victory over the Combined Fleets of France and Spain, off Cape Trafalgar, on the 21st of October, 1S05. The fum upon which the duty was paid on the late Lotd Nelfon's property, 011 proving his will, was SOOOOl. The moment after the French troops ar- rived in Vienna, they inquired for the houfe occupied by the Brititli Minifter al that place, and immediately flew to it with the ntmoft impetuofity. doubtlefs with a view to feize his perfon, and get pofleflion of his papers. Sir Arthur Paget, however, fully aware of their total difregardof the refpett univerfally paid tothe perfonsof Ambaffadors in every civilized State, as well as of their predatory condud in all matters of property, had removed his papers, and every article of value belonging to him, long before the arrival of thele ferocious hordes. Englifhmen, as they fit down to eat their Chriltmas beef, this year, may derive, from companion, that full fenfe of their own bleffings, which is too frequently wanting, except fome confideration of this kind arifes to imprefs it. They may recoiled, that, while a large portion of Europe is expofed to the ravages, the aggreflions, and the de- vaftations of armies, the calamities of war are fcarcely known in England except as matter of expence. Every man who has the means of putchafing it, may eat his Chriltmas dinner in quiet. Few have thofe means, without having fomething to fpare for thofe, who have not. Let the former then confider for how much they have to be thankful, and not omit to fliew their grati- tude to God by charity and benevolence to their fellow- creatures. Lord Valeniia.— We are happy to fay that accounts have been received of this fpiti^ ed and enterprifing Nobleman. His letters are dated Mocha, April 22. He had furveyed the Coaft of the Red Sea, as far as latitude 21, and thus elucidated the Geography of the Peraplus. He will produce a piore accurate defcription and Chart of the Red Sea than lias yet appeared. He was to remain at Mocha till the change of the Monloon in October. The folemnity and grandeur of the f. ineral of Lord Nelfon will trailfeeiid, it is frfid, every thing of a iimilar nature, that has been ever exhibited in this country. Not fewer thanSOOJ ptrfonsin official characters, are to appear in the cavalcade upon the wa - tor. The lalt ceremony will take place on the 9th of January, under' the direction of four Heralds at Arms. A very large affemblagc of the Volunteers of the metropolis vii 1 attend. An exfenfive promotion of the tiava officers who fought at Trafalgar and Ferro' has been made. Lieut. Pel fold of the Ajax, Lieut. Stock ham of the Thunderer, Capt. Digby of the Beazle, and the Flrft Lieute- nant of the Vidory, are made Poll Captains. The I'irft Lieutenants of the other ll, ips which were engaged in either of the two adions, are raifed to the rank of Mafters and Commanders. , The Officers of the French ihip Redoubt- able, faved as prifoners on board the Swift- fure, have publiflied an attefted narrative of the cii'cumllances in which they loft their fliip in the battle of Trafalgar. They claim the merit of having* lilenced the guns of the Vidory, and alrnofi boarded her ! ! 1 They own that they had 300 men killed, and ' 222 badly wounded, on board the Redoubt- able'! Several Ruffian Officers are admitted to the Portfmouth dock yard, for the ptirpofi; of inftrudion in naval architedure.

The terms which Mr. Belty demanded of the Drnry- lane Managers, for his Son, this feafon, were a hundred guineas a night for twenty- five performances, with two Bene- fits, and the managers thought proper to agree to them 1 His engagement at Covent Garden Theatre is a divilion of the profits after deduding three hundred pounds for the nightly expences. It is lingular, that at the time of the fire at Mr. Hamilton's, the printer, in Fleet- Street, about two years ago, a very valuable publication, entitled " Anacharfis's travels," had been completed, zvitb the exception of it finglefhect: the whole edition was cotifumed. This work was afterwards given to Mr. Gillet to print, and he adually finillied it all but two Jheels, when the unfortunate accident of Thurfday fe'nnight, in like man- ner, defiroyed every copy.

When that fignal was made, which fiitmi- lated every foul to deeds of glory, " Eng- land experts every man to do bis duty," it was anfwered by three cheers from the whole fleet— It made heroes of them all.

LONDON, MONDAY, DEC. 30. CESSATION OF HOSTILITIES BETWEEN rRANCE, ADSTRIA, AND RUSSIA. AT a late hour laft night we received PaYis Journals to the lQth, and Dutch Gazettes to the 24lh inftant. The complexion of the intelligence thefe enable us to convey to the public, rnull, no doubt, crcate no ftnall degree of difappoliitmcnt and furprife ; but we feel it our duty faithfully to relate what our ar- rangements for obtaining Continental news lias pat us in polfeffion of, leaving it to the judgment of the public what degree of credit they chufe to attach to information derived from thefe fources. We cannot, however, forbear obferving, that in our opinion little doubt can be entertained rel- pefiling the naked faQs which thefe Journals announce, tho' experience lliould uniformly admonilli us, how much the colouring, and evident exaggerations of circumftar. ces, lhould be dillrufied. The Moniteurs contain the 30th and 31ft Bulletins fuch as they have already been def- cribed in the Argus, and ftated in fub Itance in this paper. The Official Journal of the 18th. contains the 3. d B,* flletin, and a copy of the Armillice figncd on the part of Auftria by Prince Licbtenftein and on ibe fart of France by General Berthier. It is dated the 6th, and was agreed upon, as would appear, by the Emperors of Auftria and France in perfon. The Armistice concluded between their Majes- ties the Emperors of the French and Austria. " His Majesty the Emperor of the French, and his Majesty the Emperor of Germany, being de- sirous of coming to definitive negc. ciation, in order to put an end to a war which has devastated both their dominions, have previously agreed upon an armistice, to exist till the conclusion of a definitive peace, or the rupture of the negotiations. In the latter case, hostilities shall not recommence within fourteen days; ar. d the cessation of the armistice shall then be announced to the Plenipotentiaries of both powers, at the head- quarters of their lespec- t'. ve armies. " Article 1. The line of both armies shall be in Moravia, the Circle of lglau, the Circle of Znaim, the Circle of Brunn, a part of the Circle of Olmutz, upon ' he right bank of the little river of Trezeboski, before Prosnitz, to the spot where that river dis- charges iiseif into the Rlarck ; and the right bank of the Wan k to the junction of that river with the Danube, Presburg being included. iC No French nor Austrian troops shall, on any occasion, be stationed within five or six leagues of llaliicb. upon the right bank of the Marck. " Further, the line of both armies shall include in the terntory to be occupied by the French army, - all Upper and Lower Austria, Tyrol, the States of Ve lice, Cafinthia, Stvria, Carniola, the County of Goritz and Istria, and lastly, in Bohemia, the Circle of MolUabor,' and the whole space to the Eastward, from Tabor to I. intz. " 2. The Russian army shall evacuate the Au- st- ian States, with Austrian Poland, viz. Moravia and Hungary, within the period of fifteen days, and Callicia within a month. The routes shall be pre- scribed to the Russian army, that it may be always known where they are, as well as to prevent any misunderstanding. ( t 3. There shall be no levy en mass, or insur- rection, in Hungary, nor any extraordinary recruit- ing for troops in Bohemia, nor shall any foreign arniv be permitted to enter the teriitory of the House of Austria. '' The Negociators for both Powers shall meet at Nit olsburg, for the immediate commencement of hegociations, in order t-> effect, without delay, the re- establishment of peace, and a good understand- ing between the two Emperors.

The report of the interview betvyeen the Emperors of Auftria and France feems thus to be confirmed, and may, in fome meafure, account for the u'nexpefled conclufion of an armiftice, Napoleon is reprefented as apo- logizing for receiving the Emperor Francis in fo mean a place, ( alluding, no doubt, to the mill) ; but adds, that it had been his place of refidence for ten days. To this the Emperor Francis is made to reply, " that Napoleon might be well contented with any refidence in which he had performed fo much." The Emperor of Auftria after having agreed to the arniiftice, is faid to have re- quefied leave to extend it to the Ruffians.— Napoleon obferved, that he bad fo com- plexly fttrrounded them, that not a man could efcape ; but that from his refpedt for the Emperor Alexander, he would fend General Savary to him, intimating his wilh lo put an end to ibe calamities of war, and to open a way for the retreat of the Ruffians. General Savary on being introduced to the Emperor Alexander, was received in the molt gracious manner. He is laid to have expreffed the higheft admiration of the Em- peror Napoleon. General Savary obferved, that it was the fortieth battle which his Sovereign had gained :" to which the Em peror Alexander is faid to have replied, " that it was the fir ft in which he was en- gaged." When it was aiked what guarantee the Emperor Napoleon would require ? Sa- vary replied, " Only your WORD, Sire!" Orders have been illued from ihe Admi- ralty for the following Ihips being immedi- ately fitted at Plymouth for foreign lervice, viz. St George, 98; Caefar, 80; Montague and Rfpulfe, 74 ; Decade and Penelope frigates.

FRIDAY'S MAIL. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. Admiralty- office, December 31. A letter from Lieut. Handfield to Admiral Corn- wallis, introduces the following : — His Majestu's ship Egyptienne, off SIR, _ U. shant, Dec. 28. IHave the honour to acquaint you with the capture of the French frigate La Libre, on the afternoon of the 24th inftant, off Rochfort, by his Majefty's ( hips La Loire, Capt. F. L. Maitland, and Egyptienne, at prefent under my command, both coming up at the fame time, and joining in the at- tack. La Libre, commanded by Monfienr Def- corches, Capifaine de Fregate, mounts 24 eight- pounder guns on the main- deck, 6 thirty- fix pounder carronades, and 10 nine- pounder guns on the quarter- deck and fore- caftle, with a complement of 280 men — She fubmitted, after an obftinate defence of half an hour, having twenty men killed and wounded, and received fo much damage that all her malls went overboard foon after we took polleffion. She failed from Flulh- ing on the 14th of November, in company with a French frigate of 48 guns, from whom ( he parted in a gale of wind on the gth inftant, on the coaft of Scotland. I have much pleafure in communicating to you the good condufit of the officers and men of the Egyptienne in this affair, and have only to regret that the inferior force of the enemy did not give room for the full ex- tent of their fervices. Enclofed is a lift of the wounded, and 1 am forry to add that one is lince dead. Capt. Maitland, of La Loire, has taken charge of the prize, fiom whom I parted on the 25tb, when he had her in tow. 1 have the honour to be, & c. P. C. HANDFIELD, Lieut. The Hon. Wm. Cornwallis, Admiral of the Red, Commander in Chief, & c. [ Then follow the names of eight seamen and marines, who were wounded. J LONDON, WEDNESDAY, JAN. 1. Four Hamburgh mails are now due, we ate confequently ftill without that fpecies of intelligence which can alone enable us to form a complete conclufion with refpedt to the events which have lately taken place on the Continent. We rnuft now confine our exertions to the prote& ion of our own Ihores. Peace we are not to exped, unlefs we were to fubferibe 10 fuch a peace as would injure theinterefts and fully the honour of Great Britain. The conduct of Pruffia can, at the prefent crilis, be of little momerit in relation to us. She has committed herfelf to the vengence of Bonaparte, and Ihe w ill make the belt bar- gain ( he can for herfelf. It would be in vain for her - to attempt to refill the enor- mous mafs of military force, flufhed with, vi& ory, which Bonaparte has on foot, ready to march againft her. Minifters, we are confident, do not expe£ t that Pruffia will aft fo inconfiderate a part. They have, accordingly, refolved to bring home, wilh- out delay, the troops which were lately fent to Hanover. Captain Raines, the naval officer who fuperintends the embarkation at Ramfgate, received orders on Monday morning to fend all the empty tranfports in the Kentilh ports immediately to the Elbe. Such tranfports as had troops on board, in thefe harbours, were alfo ordered to land the men without delay, and proceed for the fame deftination. Thefe orders were carried into effea with fuch difpatch, that feteral of the tranfports went out of Ramfgate har- bour before four o'clock. The Countefs of Elgin cutter alfo received orders to fail immediately with difpatches to the Commander of the Britilh troops upon the Continent. The tranfports are cer- tainly fent for the purpofe of bringing home the troops. It would be idle to at- tempt to defend Hanover in the prefent circumft'ances; and thefe troops, which confift of a confiderable part of our regular army, will be wanted at home. The ultimate end we are to look to from this great difaller is, the arrival of the tyrant on the Ihore of Boulogne, inflamed witli tenfold hatred againft us ; exhibiting himfelf and his armies in all the impofing array of conqueft, talking of our furtiga- tion as a thing of no difficulty, after what he has effected, and imagining that the in- timidation of his recent vi& ories will render it as eafy as he defcribes it. It is not un- likely, that, under thefe circumftances, fe- cure as he will be from all alarm on the Continent, he may attempt his long- medi- tated enterprize againft us ; but the llrength and fpirit of England, we trull, will tri- umph over all her difficulties, and enable her to furvive the general ruin. A letter frorrtllamfgate, received in town yellerday, ftates, a JDaniffi vefsel had juft arrived there from the neighbourhood of Havre- de- Grace, the mailer of which af- firmed, that " two days prior to his failing, great rejoicings had taken place in France, ; n confequence of the arrival of the impor- tant information that a peace had been finally concluded between the THREE EM- PERORS."

On Saturday last, at his seat at Muntham; in Sussex, in the 84b year of his age, William Frank- land Esq. brother of the late Admiral Sir Thomas Frankland, of Thirkleby Park, in the county of York, Bart. Lately, at the extraordinary age of one hundred and twenty- five years, Mr. Creek, who had been upwards of' eighty- three years a schoolmaster at Thurlow, in Suffolk. On the 1st ult. at Coombe, near Salisbury, in the 103il year of her age, Mrs. Martha Leach Street, late of Dinton, in Wilts. Perhaps her death would not have been noticed, had not the antiquity and genealogy of her ancesto- s and property been extra- ordinary. She had a great grandfather who lived to the age of 104, a grandfather on her side to 100, a great grandfather on her husband's side to 106, and a grandfather to 98 ; all of whom were living with her and her late husband's father on the day of her marriage. She died possessed of a considerable estate, with part of the original building ( a curious structure) which had been held bv the regular suc- cession of her family, from the leign of Egbert first King of England, and which, by her death, becomes the property of her son, whose extensive family, of both sexes, promises a continuation of lineal des- cendants for many ages to come. A gentleman in this town received a let- ter yesterday from his friend in Liverpool, which mentions, that an Officer there, who ranks high in his Majesty's service, had re- ceived inforrriotion from London, that the accounts in the French papers, respecting the entire defeat of the Allied Armies on the Continent, and an Armistice having been agreed to, were ilntrile. We Ihall feel happy in being enabled to confirm this intelligence; yet we cannot but believe that an Armistice was agreed to between the Emperor of Germany and Bonaparte, on the 6th ult. which, however, did not include either the Emperor of Russia or the King of Prussia. On Monday last, about noon, the inhabitants of this town were alarmed bv the, ringing of the fire- bell ; a cellar of Mr. Thorley's, grocer, in the Market- Place, being discovered oil fire, occasioned by the boiling over of some oil. By the pfO'thpt as- sistance which was given, however, it was prevented from spreading, and was got under before much damage was done. A correspondent wishes" fis to remark, how reprehensible the practice of boiling oil in so public a situation, surrounded by buildings, is, not only on account of the danger, but from its emitting so intolerable a stench. We hope so great a nuisance will in future be avoided. On Sunday morning1 about three o'clock, a fire broke out in Thackeray and- Son's cotton factory, called Gariat- mill, near M. aiichestet, and such was the rapidity of the devouring element, that in less than an hour tile whole building was reduced to a heap of ruins. Fortunately, from the direction of the wind, the flames did not communicate to the adjacent factories and other edifices. A short time previous to the fire being seen, an attempt was made to break into the dwelling- house of Messrs. Thackeray ; and while those gentlemen retired to alarm the watchman, the factory was observed to be on fire in three different parts; there remains, there- fore, not the smallest doUbt of this diabolical deed having been committed by some. wickedincendiaries, who, we trust, will speedily be brought to justice, a large reward being offeied for their apprehension ; and, we are happy to hear, one of the perpetrators has already evinced a disposition to impeach bis ac- com plices. We have been favoured, by our Kendal corres- pondent, with the following accurate account of the quantity of rain, which fell, ill that town, in each month of the year 1805 : January February March April May June July 4,814 4,686 6,501 August September October December 0,732 November 2,07.4 1,921 5,222 4,758 3,231 1,479 1,633 5,748 42,799 Upon the further examination of Mary Brown, before Richard Johnson, Esq. Mayor of this Bo- rough, she stands committed to our Castle,' for trial, at the next assizes, for uttering base shillings and sixpences.— This woman has been connected with a gang of nefarious wretches, lately' removed from Manchester to Skerton, in order to put off counter- feit money in this town and neighbourhood. William Weston the younger, has also been Committed to our Castle, by E. Wilbraham Bootle, Esq. charged with having stolen about seventeen pounds in Bank notes, gold, and silver, in the counting- house of Stephen Walmslcy, of Orms- kirk, brewer ; and Edward Barlow, committed by the same gentleman, charged with having stolen a chesnut- coloured gelding, the property of Peter Wright, of North Meols. On Sunday evening, the 22d ult. while the guard of the mail coach from London had gone into the Post- office at Macclesfield, the Stockport bag was stolen from the coach, ami the thief has hitherto eluded detection. Tl) e bag was found in a field near the former place on Thursday se'nnight, but the letters had all been taken out. A reward is offered or apprehending the robber. t) ri the 56th uft. the Coronas lilcjuest met finally to consider the cause of the death of the unfortunate George Calvert, the Selby carrier; and after a minute investigation from eleven in the forenoon till six in the evening, returned a verdict of wilful murder against Joseph Ilazlegrave arid Joseph Brown.— They were consequently committed to Yoik Castle the following morning, to take their trial at the next assizes On Monday se'nnight, Daniel Humphries and Thomas Smith, were committed to York Castle, by J. Wright, Esq. Mayor of Doncaster, charged with having been concerned witli J. Murray, in robbing a warehouse at Wakefield. The latter made his escape on Monday evening, and for whose appre- hension a reward of 501. is offered — A few weeks ago, the above persons atrived at Doncastc- r ( they said) from Manchester, with a quantity of linen and woollen- drapery goods, & c. for sale at very low prices, for the purpose, it was stated, of raising a large sum of money against a certain time. In the night between the 23d and 24tli ult. the shop of Mr. Tyson, haberdasher, in St. Mary's Gate, Manchester, was robbed of goods to the amount of 3001. The nocturnal depredators, it appears, hav ng failed in their attempt to force the door, owing to the strength of a cross bolt, had cut out a pannel in the window shutters, and, breaking one of the squares of glass, contrived to draw through several pieces of fustian and boxes of ribbon ; but on an alarm being given by the family, they thrt- w the greater part of the gotjds Into the ccllar of a new building adjoiniHg to Mr. Tyson's house, where the property was recovered, with the exception of about twenty pounds worth of ribbons, with which tliev contrived to escape. ( In Thursday se'ntiiglW," a melafi'choly accident happened at a woollen manufactory in1 UlingWorth, near Halifax.— As a young woman, of the name of Saiali Earnshaw, employed at a spinning engine, was assisting to adjust the strip of the wheel, she unfortunately got eniangled therewith, and being violently drawn round the drum or tumbling shaft, was instantly killed— It is remarkable, that im- mediately preceding tlie accident, she was observing, it was little more than five years since her brother was killed, in that place, and by the same engine. -•- She had scarcely uttered the words, when it was her misfortune to meet a premature death, nearly in the same manner. It has been announced at the several Freemasons Lodges in London, that the Constitutions of the Ancient and Modern Freemasons have been con- solidated ; and that his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales has been placed at the head of the Society of the united kingdom. On Thursday se'nnight, the Judges in Scotland gave their decision in the great cause, wherein the Ladies Kerr, sisters to the late John Duke of Rox- burgh, were plaintiffs, and John Wauchope, Esq. the trustee, the Rev. Chas. Baiilie, Sir John Scott, and Sir Henry Hay, Barts legate^, were defendants. — The plaintiffs tried to set aside the Duke's will, on the ground that his Grace was not of a sound disposing mind at the time he executed the will.— The Judges unanimously found a verdict for the defendants. A Miss Fraser, not si* years of age, performed Douglas at the Greenock theatre, on Monday se'n- ' night, and was received with great applause 1 Churches.—- Mr Carr ( in bis Northern Summer) remarks, that the Russians are most enthusiastically attached to their churches; and notices a saying current in Russia, which is not very honourable to the inhabitants of this Island, " that whilst the Russians build their churches jiist, and their towns afterwards, the English never think of a temple until they have erected their own dwellings."— It would be well if they thought of it even then ; but we are concerned to say, this is not often the case. A few days ago, at the annual meeting of the Bath and West of England Agricultural Society, Lord Somerville produced several pieces of cloth made from the wool of his own improved breed of sheep, which unequivocally established the impor- tant fact, that I''? tglish wool is equal to the finest Spa- nish. The meeting resolved upon instituting a che- mical laboratory, as illustrative and highly beneficial to rural economy. The shew of cattle this year was comprised of such as were more calculated to enrich the table and sustain life, than for the dripping pan or chandler's shop. One of the fattest and best formed prick- eared pigs in the county was shewn at Durham, last week. It weighed upwards of eighty stone; was in length, from the nose to the tail, eight feet nine inches ; in height, three feet seven inches; and eight feet seven inches in girth. A horse, the property of Mr. J. Smith, of Barling Mill, la'ely died at the astonishing age of 41 years. He was never known to lose a day's work by sickness of lameness during his life. The election of a Member for Boroughbridge, in the room ofthe Hon. Mr. Scott, is fixed for the 10th ol January. The death of the charming Mrs, Duff has struck a panic through the world of fashion, which, we hope, will be productive of some salutary effects. This lady's death was occasioned by a cold caught in coming from a fashionably crowded room at Edin- burgh. ' On Monday se'nnight, as Mr'. B. of L— d Hall, was walking in the grounds adjoining his house, he felt the earth beneath him suddenly give way ; and on examining the break, he discovered a trap door, which having opened, he descended a few steps, and perceived a leaden coffin, eight feet by three, fixed upon four posts fastened under it. At the bead of the coffin was placed ari urn of exquisite workmanship, with all inscription in mvsterioUs characters engraved oil it. The inscription " has been laid before several learned men of the County of Durham, but without success. On opening the coffin, there appeared to have been a body placed in it, completely doubled Up ; the hair was visible on the head, and the bones were of an immense size.— Several small pieces of coin were found at the same time,— Tyne Mercury. The following wonderful cbace may be depended on as strictly true :— Oil Wednesday the 18th ult. as a Mr. Lion, an inhabitant of Chatteris, was skait- ing, on his way to Nordelph, wiihin the parish of Downliam Market, he saw a hare upon the ice ; he pursued her, and was abreast of her for upwards of a mile, and at last took her without any assistance or weapon than a small stick he had in his hand.— We are apt to think this is the first instance of so swift an animal as a hare being run down by a man.— Cam- bridge Chronicle. A valuable silver cup has been presented to Capt. Lewtas, of the ship Venerable, ' of Liverpool, for his meritorious exertions in beating off a French privateer, twice, on his voyage from thence for Bar- badoes, in March last — The following inscription is engraven thereon, viz. l< This Cup is presented by the Underwriters of Lloyd's CoffetJiouse, to Captain William Lewtas, of the ship Venerable, of Liverpool, as their testimony to the bravery of his conduct in twice repulsing, with great slaughter, a French privateer, carrying 16gw. s and 104 men, on his voyage from Liverpool to Ear- liadocs, in March, 1805." < It has been reported among the higher circles that five hundred pounds will be given to any person who shall produce the best Eulogy to the memory of our immortal tar, Lord Nelson. At the decease of the Noble Duke of Marlborough, the like sum was publicly advertised, for the best Eulogy that could be produced ; many elaborate pieces were produced, but none gave that satisfaction equal to the follow- ing, which is comprised in a few short lines, and gained the prize : Five hundred pounds I too small a boon, To put the poet's muse in tuiie, That nothing might escape her ; To sing the noble Marlborough's praisej And write his deeds in Sun- bright lays, It would not find him paper.

The trial of Vice- Adfniral Sir Robert Calder, for not bringing the French fleet tp action a second time, ort' Fer'ol, commenced on board the Prince of Wales, at Portsmouth, on the 23d ult. The evi- dence for the prosecution closed on the same day. The witnesses examined in support of the charges • were, Admiral Stirling, Captains Martin, Dur- ha.:-, an- i Lunan, and Mr. Craddock, master of the Glory — Vice- Admiral Sir George Montague, President of the Court, then called upon Sir R. Calder for his defence, who, not expecting the Solicitor for . he prosecution would have closed his case so soon, was unprepared, and obtained the grant of a day to arrange the same, and bring up his witnesses. On Wednesday, Mr. Gazelee read Sir Robert's defence, which was of considerable lei. g h; an-. t several witnesses were examined to prove the circumstances stated. On . Thursday, Mr. Greetham. the Judge Advocate, read the sen- tence to this effect: " At a Court Martial, assembled on board the Prince of Wales ( reciting the names of ihe Mem- bers of the Court) and setting forth, that Vice- Admiral Sir Robert Calder, by his letter, had de- sired that an inquiry should be made into his con- duct or. the 23d of July last, in not renewing the engagement with the Combined Fleet, in order that he might be enabled to state his reasons pub- licly ; arid also stating, that the Admiralty had thought fit, in compliance with such request, to direct, that a Court Martial should be assembled to inquire into his conduct on the said 23d of July, in riot renewing the engagement, and for not taking or destroying all the ships of the enemy, which it was his duty to engage.— Ami that the Court had proceeded to inquire into the conduct and proceedings of Vice- Admiral Sir R. Calder, w ith the squadron under his command ; and hav- ing heard the evidence in support of the charge, and what he had aliedged in his defence, and the evidence in support of that defcnce, and having maturely weighed the whole, the Court were of opinion, the charge of not having renewed the en- gagement with the Combined Fleet, and of not having taken or destroyed all the ships of the enemy, which it was his duty to have engaged, was PROVED, and that the conduct of Vice- Admiral Calder was not the'effect of cowctrdice or disaffection, but from an URM in JUDGMENT ; for which he is highly censurable, and deserved to be s.- verely reprimanded, and ( added the Judge Advocate) he IS SEVERELY R E R R 1 M AN DEC ac- cordi gly." Upon the sentence being pronounced. Admiral Calder appeared deeply affected— he turned round, and retired without uttering a word. AUTHENTSCATED ACCOUNT O E THE DEATH OF LORD NELSON. We should scarcely azain call the attention of our reatlers to this subject, w hich has so frequently been detailed to them, but that our purpose is to arrest tome principal errors in the accounts which have been given of the last moments of our departed Heto, and to exhibit the faithful anil authentic report which has been communi- cated ' o us from those gentlemen who attended Lord Nelson in his dying hours. To our present report, therefore, we have to affix the names of Mr. Heatty, the surgeon, and Mr. Bourke, the purser of the Victory. Such is their relation : About the middle of the adion with the Combined Fleets, on the 21ft of Odober, Lord Neifon was upon the quarter- deck, where he had refolved to take his flation during the whole of the battle.— A few minutes before, he was wounded, Mr. Bourke was near him ; he looked ftedfaftly at him, and laid, " Bourke, I expe6l every man to be upon his ftation." Mr. Bourke took the. hint, and went to his proper luna- tion iu the cock- pit. At this time his Lordlliip's StJCTefary, Mr. Scott, who was not, as has been reprefented, either receiving rliredions from him, or ftanding by him, bat was communicating fome orders to an officer at a diftant part of the quarter- deck, was cut almoft in two by | k c3nnon fliot. He expired on the inftant, and was thrown overboard. Lord Neifon obferved the ad of throw- ing his Secretary overboard, and faid, as if doubtful, to a Midlhipman who was near him, " Was that Scott ?" The Midlhipman replied, he believed it was. He exclaimed " Poor fellow !' He was now walking on the quarter- deck, and about three yards from the Hern, the fpace he generally walked before he. turned back. His Lordfliip was in the a£ l of turning on the quarter- deck, wilh his face towards the enemy, when he was mortally wounded in the left bread by a mufket ball, fuppol'ed to have been fired from the tnizen tup of the Redoubtable French fhip of the line, which the Vidory had attacked early in the battle. He inflantly fell. He was not, as has been related, picked up by Capt. Hardy. In the hurry of the battle, which was then raging in its greateft violence, even the fall of their beloved Commander did not inter- rupt the bufinefs of the quarter deck. Two failors, however, who were near his Lord- fliip, raifed him in their arms, and carried him to the cock- pit. He was immediately laid upon a bed, and the following is the fubftance of the converfation which really took place in the cock pit between bis Lordfliip, Capt. Hardy, Mr. Bourke, and Beatty. Upon feeing him brought down, Mr. Bourke immediately ran to him. " I fear," he laid, " your Lordfhip is wounded."— " Mortally, mortally.''—" 1 hope not, my dear Lord ; let Mr. Beatly examine your wounds."—" It is of no ufe," exclaimed the dying Neifon ; " he had better attend to others." Mr. Beatty now approached to examine the wound. His Lordiliip jvas raifed up ; and Beatty, whofe attention was anxioully fix^ cl upon the eyes of his patrient, as an indication the mod certain when a wound is mortal, after a few moments glanced his eye 011 Bourke, and exprefled his opinion in his countenance — Lord Neifon now turned to Bourke, and faid, " Tell Hardy to come to me." Bourke left the cock- pit- — Beatty now faid, " Suffer me, my Lord, to probe the wound with my finger— I will give you no pain." Lord Neifon permitted him, and, palling his left hand round his wailt, he probed it with the fore finger of his right. The defcription of the furgeon, however, is fo accurate and fcientific, that, by his permiflion, we thankfully give it. " On his Lordiliip being brought below, he complained of acute pain in about the fixth or feventh dorfal vertebra, of priva- tion of fenfe, and motion of the body and inferior extremities; his refpiration was fliort and difficult; his pulfe weak, fmall, and irregular; he frequently declared his back was fhot through— that he felt every inflant a gufl) of blood within his breaft; and that he had fenfalions which indicated to him the approach of death. In the courfe of an hour his pulfe became indif- tind, and was gradually loft in the arm ; his extremities and forehead became foon afterwards cold; he retained his wonted energy of mind and cxercife of his faculties until the laft moment of his exiftence; and when vidory, as fignal as decifive, was announced to him, he expretfed bis pious acknowledgments thereof, and heart- felt fatisfadion at the glorious event, in the moft emphatic language. He then de- livered his laft orders wilh his ufual preci- fion, and, in a few minutes after, expired without a ftruggle. " Courfe and fite of tie ball ajcertained fmce death. " The ball ftruck the forepart of his Lordlliip's epaulette, and entered the left flioulder immediately before the proceffus acromion fcapulae, which it flightly frac- tured ; it then defended obliquely into the thorax, fraduring the fecond and third ribs; and after penetrating the left lobe of the lungs, and dividing in its palfage a large branch of the pulmonary artery, it entered the left fide of the fpine, between the fixth and feventh dorfal vertebrae, fradured the left tranfvene procefs of the fixth vertebrae, wounded the medulla fpinalis, and, fra61ur- ing the right tranfverfe procefs of the feventh vertebras, it made its way from the right fide of the fpine, direding its courfe through the mufcles of the back, and lodged therein, about two inches below the inferior angle of the right fcapula. " On removing the ball a portion of the gold lace and pad of the epaulette, together with a fmall piece of his Lordlliip's coat, were found firmly attached to it. " W. BEATTY, furgeon." When Bourke returned into the cock- pit with Capt. Hardy, Lord Neifon told the latter to come near him—" Kifs me, Hardy 1" he exclaimed — Captain Hardy killed his cheek.—" 1 hope your Lordfliip ( faid he) will ftill live to enjoy your triumph."— " Never, Hardy ( he exclaimed) I am dying; I am a dead man all over;, Beatty will tefl you fo— Bring the fleet to an anchor ! you have all done your duty— God blefs you."— Capt. Hardy now faid, *' I fuppofe Colling- wood, my dear Lord, is to command the fleet ?"— Never ( he exclaimed) wbiljl I live;"— meaning doubtlefs, that fo long as his gallant fpirit lurvived lie would never defert his duty. What pilTed after this was merely cafual. His Lordlliip's laft words were to Mr. Beatty, whilft he was expiring in his arms, " 1 couid have wifhed to have lived to enjoy this; but God's will be done."—" My Lord ( exclaimed Hardy) you die in the midft of triumph."—" Do I, Hardy ?"— He fmiled ; faintly—" God be^ praifed I"— Thefe were j his laft words before lie expired. LORD NELSON'S FUNERAI. The period for the interment of that illuftrious hero's remains is at length de- termined on. Lord Hawkefbury has com- municated to the gentlemen belonging to the Board of Works, that the funeral would pofitively take place on the 9th of January next. A written order was fent down to St. Paul's Cathedral, figned by Charles Alex. Craig, Efq. Examiner to the Board of Works, addrelfed to all the principal Artificers therein employed, defiring them to expedite the finifiling of their different orders on or before the 7th of January.— Since this order has been received, an additional number of men have been employed ; and, from prefent appearances, there cannot be a doubt that the whole will be fmillied by the 3d or 4th of this month. The workmen, within the laft three days, have been aftonilliingly ex- peditions in ereding the fcaffolding under the dome, and in the weftern aifle. The whole of the bracketing is already finiflied, and ready to receive the feats in every part of the Cathedral appropriated for that pur- pofe. The feats, fcaffolding, & c. are built in a moft fubflantial manner, and the whole is under the fo! e diredion of the Surveyor General. Every feat will be covered with matting, over which will be placed black cloth. As we before afTerted, no ticket will be fold on any pretence whatever. The Bifhop of Lincoln, who is the Dean of St. Paul's, will affix his fignature to every ticket of admillion at the doors. Thefe tickets will not entitle the owners to feats. The others muft be procured either from the Bifhop of London, or the Lords of the Ad- miralty or the Treafury. The Dean of St. Paul's left town on Monday for Buckden Palace, to prepare the tickets at his difpofal, and until his Lordfliip's return no further arrangements in that refped will be made. Lord Nelfon's grave is exadly fixteen feet below the teflelated pavement. Beneath the pavement, at the foundation of the Church, the grave is funk from the level exadly two feet nine inches in depth ; it is two feet nine inches in width, and exadly feven feet long, Mr. Milne, the Archited of St. Paul's, yefterday afternoon gave his inflrudions to the workmen to commence hoifting the different colours around the dome, which were taken from the enemy by the revered tar. The colours of the Vidory are to furmount the pyramid ereded over the grave. The preparations in the Painted Hall at Greenwich are as follow : In the tipper part of ths Hall, a fpace of about 60 feet fquare is elevated about eight fteps, and inclofed by a railing, in which the body lies in ftate. Within this fpace, in order to preferve the valuable paintings, an incloftire of timber- work, at about five feet dittance frcm the walls, and at leaft twenty- five feet high, has been ereded. The, whole is expeded to be covered with black clotii this day. At the upper end of this inclofed fpot, is a kind of platform raifed about a foot from the floor, on which the body is to lie in ftate, and over the centre of which is placed a canopy, to be covered with black cloth. The great body of ihe Hall which ap- proaches this elevated part, is divided by a wooden partition, placed longitudinally, and communicating with two diftinct palfages, by which very judicious arrangement, the fpedators will approach the l'olemn fcene by die Northern door, and retire through the Eaftern gate. Thus all confnfion and joftling will be avoided. The latter will alfo have a partition ereded to preferve the paintings. LORD NELSON's PASSING KNELL: AND ALSO ONE CERTAIN ME<\ NS OF COMMUNICATING TO POSTERITY THE MEMORABLE BATTLE OF 21ST OCTOBER, 1805. It is flrongly reported, that on the day of Lord Nelfon's funeral, the palling knell will be tolled throughout the day, by the bells of every parilh church in Great Bri- tain, beginning at lun- iife, and continuing to toll ( one full every minute, like the firing of minute guns) till fun - fet ; when- thole churches that have a complete fet of bells, will ring a folemn and awful FUNEIHL PEAL. It is alfo reported, that a fum out of a certain laudable fund is to be appropriated to the purpofe of paying the ringers, to ring a funeral peal once a year, for ever afterwards, at the different churches in the united kingdom, in commemoration of his moft glorious death ; and alfo as one certain means of handing down to all claffe- of people, in future ages, the. hiftory of the aftonifhing vidory atchieved off Trafalgar, by the beloved and lamented Hero of the Britifli Illes.— Something like the following notice might, perhaps, anfwer the purpofe, to be painted on a board, and put up in the belfry of every church :— TAKE NOTICE: A funeral peal is to be rung by the bells of this church, once every year, on the evening of ihe , in commemoration of the glorious and ever- to- be- lamented death of Vice- Admiral Lord Vifcount Nei- fon, K. B. the darling Hero of his country, the pride of every Briton, and the fincere friend of every honeft leaman. He was Commander in Chief of the Britilli fleet oft' Cape Trafalgar, on the 21 ft of Odober, 1805, and fell in the hour of vidory, at the age of 47 years, when bravely fighting for every thing dear to Englishmen. The enemy had 33 fliips of the line ( 18 French and 15 Spanifli) which were engaged by the Brititli fleet, conlifting of 27 fail of the line, and totally defeated, after an adion of four hours, when the Britifli captured 19 fliips of the line, with three Admirals. *** Note— This notice jftould be renewed or frejh fainted every 10 years. THE EMPEROR ALEXANDER. Mr. Carr, in his Northern Tour, gives the following defcription of this gallant hero: —" The prefent Emperor Alexander is about 28 years of age ; is face his very full, fair, and his complexion pale; his eyes blue, and expreffive of that betieficient mildnefs j which is one of the prominent features of his charader: his perfou is tall, In fly, and well- proportioned ; but, being a little deaf, to facilitate his hearing, he ftoops: his de- portment is condelcending, yet dignified.— In the difcharge of his augufl duties he dif- plays great adivity and aculenefs, but with- out lbow or bu'.'. le : the leading features of his mind are found difcretion and humanity ; qualities which cannot fail to render an empire flourilhing, and a people happy.— He is fo much an enemy to parade, that he is frequently feen wrapped up in his regi- mental cloak riding about the capital alone upon a little common drojlka : in this man- ner he has been known to adminifter to the wants of the poor. It is his villi if he fliould be recognized in this ftate of privacy, that no one will take off their hats ; but the gracioufnefs of his defire puts the heart in the hand as it uncovers the head. .. . . . The Emperor is very much attached to the Englifh, numbers of whom have fettled in the Empire, and have formed, under the aufpices of the Government, a fort of colony. The Emperor has often been heard to fay, ' The man within whofe reach Heaven has placed the greateft materials for making life happy was, in his opinion, an Enghjh Country Gentleman.' POST- HORSE DUTY. On Saturday morning the Commillioners of the Stamp- Office met in the Great Room in the Crown and Anchor Tavern, London, to let to farm, for three years, the Poft- horfe Duty, according to the conditions advertifed. Mr. Eftcourt, the Solicitor to the Commiftioners, attended them, and put up the feveral diftrids. When a bid- ding was made, he placed a glafs before him made like an hour- glafs, containing land, and took about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour to run out, and when all the fand was ran out, he declared the laft bidder the purchafer. During the time the fand was running out he difplayed as oratorical abili- ties as a regular profeffor of the hammer. The following funis were given in the dif- ferent diftiids. North Britain - - - £ 12,100 Northuin erland, Cumberland* Westmor- land, and Durham - - - 8,040 Yorkshire - 131720 Lancashire, Cheshire, Derbyshire, and Staffordshire - 14.940 Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and Lei- cestershire - 9> i.

Between four and five hundred gentlemen attended as bidders. Thofe who proved the farmers depofitedan eighth of their bidding. It being neceffary that thofe who intended to be the farmers fhould have in their pockets confiderable fums, for the purpofe of making the depofit, which they are obliged to do in Bank- notes, numbers of gentlemen had their pockets picked to the amount of feveral thoufand pounds at the former meeting. The Conimillioners, to avoid thefe depredations on Saturday, en- gaged Meftrs. Macmanus, Sayers, Townfend, and Rivett, to attend, and we did not hear of any lofs being fuftained. SHIP NEIVS.

Extract of a letter from Captain Thomas Mullioti, of the ship Robert, dated at the Islund of Gnree, 23d November, 1805, to his owner. " Since I last wrote to you, I have to add, that on the 22d October, when i was going to leave this for the river, I received a note from tile Governor, wishing to see me on shore, when he informed me be had just received accounts that a zebeck pri- vateer was seen going into the river Gambia, and requested to know if 1 would go down after her, and endeavour to take her, and that he would put on board 50 soldiers', which I readily agreed to ; and that evening was embarked, one captain, two lieutenants, two sergeants, two corporals, one drummer, and twenty- four privates, and the same evening weighed and proceeded for the Gambia.— Tiie following day, in the afternoon, got sight of the entrance of the river, and shortly after the zebeck was seen working out of the river, with the brig Mars in company, whom he had captured in the river fand whom, we have since learned, he had manned with fifty men) we made all sail after them, but, from the lightness of the winds, it was nine o'clock at night before we brought the brig to action, which was kept up smartly on both sides; immediately after the zebeck came down upon us, bet, from the galling fire kept up by the soldiers from their musketry, and the great guns, he was frustrated in several attempts to board us, although lie tried in every direction ; after an hour and a half close action, they hauled off, and we were in shoal water, almost upon tile Tougi Rocks, and obliged to come to an anchor.— Tiie following morning they were in sight in the S. IV. quarter; we immediately got under weigh, and went in chase of them; after running ninety miles, at sun down, found we were too far off to keep sight of them, the night being extremely dark, relinquished the chase : had we been so for- tunate to have fallen in with them, and could have brought them to action by day light, I have not the least doubt but we should have recaptured i the brig, but for the zebeck she Sailed too fast. 1 j am happy to say, that although we were hulled in several places, with our standing and running rigging cut in several places, and above one hu[ 1. dred shot through the sails, we did no- lose a mart; but will answer lo say they cannot boast of the same gc. od luck. " We have had the Hebe fivrate, Favourite sloop of war, and the Arab tv\ enty gun ship, hce lately, the latter of whom ; s stationed here, there- fore we may expect a clear coast fiom privateers. " N. B. By another letter it appears, thai the force of the privatoer mentioned above, was four 24' and six 6- pounders and 133 men. A R R 1 V E D. S 1' A 1 N .

AS a serious caution to all who, from the nature of their complaints, are ob- liged to have recourse to that dangerous piepara- tion mercury: it is certainly, if taken with discre- tion, a most noble and effectual cure for every species of venereal infection but, on the other hand, there is not an article in ihe whole Materia Medica so replete with danger; for should the patient take cold whilst under a course of this ex- traordinary medicine, it frequently leaves behind it tiie gour, rheumatism, numbness in the limbs, and paraly tic affections, which, however, may not be felt till after a lapseof seven, eight or ten years. Many persons in business, servants, and indeed all who, from t he nature of their employment, are obliged to be out in all weathers, being liable 10 catch cold under a course of mercury. which. may terminate their lives, but no such danger will in- tervene to those who substitute Dr. BRODUVi'S BOTANICAL SYRl/ P, which is particulailyre- commended to be used previous to entering into the matrimonial state, leat the indiscretion of a parent prove a source of vexation to him tor the remainder of his days, by afflicting his innocent but unfortunate offspring with the evil, eruptions of a most malignant tendency, and a variety of other complaints, that are most assuredly pioduccd by neglect and imprudence.

In particular it is recommended to young men and boys; as an early attention to the latter may serve to guard them from a fatal rock on which thousands have split, and be the means of preserving their bodies from disease, and also their souls, their minds, and all ( heir facul- ties from destruction.
