THE WINGHESTE AND GENERAL ADVERTISER OF WILTS\ HANTS> DORSET\ AND S0MERSE1 [ NUMBER 3710. VOLUME LXXIII.] MONDAY, MARCH 28, 1808. I'RICE SIXPENCE. / Stamp Duty., .. (_ Paper and Print Monday's and Utesday's Posts. FOREIGN NEWS. GOITENBURGH, March 11. ALL communication by post, or otherwise, between Helsinburgh and Elsineur, is for the present suspended. Travellers who arrived from Denmark yesterday, aud who were the last the Danes suffered to depart, report that the French entered Holsteiu on the 4th, and that apartments were taken at Copenhagen for Bernadotte when they left it; and, as we know that every ship in the Danish harbours is put in requisition for the purpose ot transporting troops, we may expect to hear from day to tlay of the com- mencement of hostilities. LONDON, . MONDAY, MARCH 21. MARK- LANK, Monday. March 21. We had this day but a scanty supply of Grain in general; and from the clearance made last week, there appeared some expectation in the early part of the day of an advance in prices, but this could not be obtained, ex » ept for a small quantity of very fine clean heavy white Wheat; and when it is stated that white Peas are cheaper,— Grey Peas, Beans, Oats, Tares, arid Rape Seed the veriest trifle dearer, the general currency of last week may be referred to as the present standard, Clover Seed has a much less brisk demand than of late, aud the price of Flour is unvaried. SMITIIFIELD MARKET, March 21. We had this day an ample supply of all kinds of Cattle.— Prices as last week. Two Gottenburgh Mails arrived yesterday, with letters and papers from that city to the 12th instant, an- nouncing the commencement of hostilities between Russia itid Sweden. This important intelligeHce is contained in two official reports from the Swedish Lieuteuant- General Klucker, giving an account of the military operations to the 30th of February. It appears that a Swedish force was posted near Forsby, in Finland, in two brigades, one of which wis attacked on the 14th by the Russians, and driven in. The Russians attacked the other brigade on the 25th, and again in the night between the 27th and 28th, but were defeated. The second brigade, however, notwith tanding th'w advantnge, was obliged to fall back to preserve a com- munication with the first. In these skirmishes the loss of the Swedes was inconsiderable. The accounts from the, Swedish troops in Finland come down to the 5th of March, at which date the army was concentrated in the Vicinity of Tawastchus, where the Commander in Chief had his head- quarters.— The Swedish army, on the 1st inst. comprised 44,800 men, of whom 17,000 were in Finland, under General Klengspor; 8800 in Scania, under General Toll; 8000 in the environs of Gottenburgh, under General Vegesack ; 2700 in tbe pro- vinces beyond Stockholm; a corps of reserve of 5200 men in F. a t Gothland ; and another reserve, of 3000 men, is forming in the Northern Provinces. The remainder are under the King, near Stockholm. The Russian Cabinet appears to have entertained doubts of tbe success of its arms in Finland, since it has resorted to the basest arts to get footing in • that province. The Swedish traitor Sprengporton has a high command in the Ru-„ ian army, and exercises all his address to seduce the Fins from their allegiance to theirs and his own lawful So- vereign. Proclamations, signed by Buxhovden, the Rus- sion Commander in Chief, have been circulated in Finland, calling on the inhabitants to revolt, promising them pro- tection ; and on the soldiers to desert, with the offer of rewards for horses, guns, accoutrements, or whatever else they may carry off to the Russians. A Spy was appre- hended on the 24th ult. on whom were found several copies of this proclamation, with several letters explaining the plan formed by the Russian Cabinet to assist him ; for which service it had formed a revolutionary corps, consist- ing of a Major, two Subalterns, and four soldiers, ines- sengers> & c. to carry on the necessary correspondence. The Spy was sent in irons to the Swedish capital, and measures were taking for apprehending a courier, who, under the cloak of conveying dispatches to the Russian Ambassador, was bringing more copies of this Proclamation, to be dis- persed in the neighbourhood of the Swedish armies. It was the discovering of these base practices that occasioned the Swedish Monarch to confine M. Alopeus tu his house, with an intimation that he could 110 longer be regarded in his diplomatic character. American journals were received this morning,— from Philadelphia to the date of the 25th of January, and from Boston to the 3d of February, inclusive. The advices from Washington are dated the 23d of January: they state that little is known respecting the negociation with Mr. Rose ; but that he appears to be on a friendly footing with the Gentlemen in power, that it is understood the princi- ples on which they will treat are settled, and that Mr. Rose's mission will terminate in nil honourable and amicable ad- justment of all differences between Great Britain and the United States. Baron Jacobi, late Ambassador here from the Court of Berlin, embarked at Dover on Friday, on board a flag ot truce, for France, and arrived close in with Calais late that night: the vessel was hailed from the Citadel, and the Captain was informed he would be fired oh, if he attempted to enter the Harbour, and that no person would he suffered to land. The vessel in consequence stood off till the next morning, when Baron Jacobi directed the Master to run her to the Harbour's mouth, which he did, and was again warned off. The Master took the trumpet, saying, " I have Baron Jacobi, late Russian Ambassador to the Court of London on board, who has the necessary passports from your Court, and wishes to land." — After a iong parley, a boat came out, with the Com- mander of the Citadel, who addressed the Baron with great respect, but told him bis orders were peremptory not to admit him or any person to land, and not to suffer the least future communication with any vessel from England, whether bearing a flag of truce or not, under any circum- stances ; that he risqued the charge of disobedience in making this communication; and must, on his return, give orders for firing on the vessel, if she did not instantly stand off. Baron Jacobi was very desirous to have a letter for- warded to the Minister of Foreign Affairs at Paris ; but the Commandant reminded him that he had already said he was prohibited from allowing any intercourse whatever with British vessels, lie- added, that if any other vessel from England approached the shore, it would certainly be fired on ; and then politely took leave, and was rowed back to the shore. The vessel returned to Dover, where Baron Jacobi landed on Saturday evening; and late last night he arrived in London. In the system of warfare adopted by the ruler of France, and imposud on the Continent of Europe, we appear to be going back to the ferocity of feudal times. It was reported that some English Pilots, who had risqued their lives in taking neutral ships into a Dutch port, were detained as prisoners. This report is doubtless tiue, as the men have not returned home ; and certain advice has been received that two more of tbe Dover over- sea pilots, who carried neutral ships into the Texel, have been taken out of them, and committed to prison! Several offices at the Royal Exchange were broken open early on Saturday morning, and plundered to a considerable amount. Mr. Smith lost from bis office about 40/. in cash, and 700/. in bill?; Messrs. Rivers and Angerstein lost about 90/. in cash ; Mr. Parish lost about 40/. among which was a 5/. draft, which the robbers contrived to get paid before notice was given to stop it Shares of lottery tickets, pieces of Irish cloth, even provisions were carried off from different offices; but in many of them the attempts of the robbers to force open the iron chests, in which very large sums of money were deposited, had failed; and in the Merchant Seaman's Office 700/. which hail been set apart for payment that morning, escaped falling into their hands, by their overlooking the closet where it was deposited. A dreadful fire broke out on Thursday evening at the house of Mrs. Lacy, Clenton Range, Sarrv, which destroyed the same in less than two hours. Tbe servant- maid, who WAS up stairs, had no opportunity of descending, and in jumping from the window to the lead of an adjoining house, she broke her thigh. An infant, the grand- daughter of Mrs. Lacy, who was sleeping in the room where the fire broke out, perished in the flames; and the latter, who slept in the Borough on the night of the fire, is suffering the lo3s of her faculties from tbe sad event. A shocking suicide was committed on Friday night, in Peymour- street, by a young Officer, Lieutenant in a Regiment of Foot, who cut his throat in a water- closet. The young gentleman had been married only three weeks, and when he committed tile rash net he had a select party to suppT at his house, whom he clandestinely left to accomplish his purpose I PORTSMOUTH VICTUALLING OFFICE, March 24, 1808.

JjOrd Lauderdale rose to. make his promised motion, respecting the injury which must result to the general commerce of the country, from the operation of the Orders is Council. His Lonlship took a wide field in arguing. this point; but insisted chiefly on their injurious tendency te wards America and this country. These orders must, he contended, sink the value of all the articles of American export, and thus disable the United States from paying the debts they owed to this country; and by suspending or annihilating the trade of America, there would be no inlet ; to the Continent for our colonial produce. His Lordship read a string of resolutions stating these facts, and moved that they should be adopted by the House. Lord Bat, hurst replied, that the facts lyere contrary to the statement of the Noble Earl: that in 1806 and 1807, our exports to America had fallen off to the amount of nearly five millions sterling; hut since the issuing of. the Orders in Council the trade had revived, so that in the last nine weeks the export of cottons, woollens, & c. from the port of London had increased. Lord King and Lord Grenville spoke in support of the proposed resolutions,— Lord Ilawkc- bury against, them, and in defence of the Orders in Council. On a division, the Contents were 21, the Non- Contents 56; consequently the resolutions were rejected by a majority of 35.— Adjournal. HOUSE OF COMMONS. MONDAY, March 21.) The bill for building a bridge arross the Thames, from the Savoy Prec- int to Cuper'. s- bridge, was read a second time.— Lord G. Cavendish pre- sented petitions against the bill, from Earl Spencer and other proprietors of Battersra- bridge; to be beard by Counsel on the third reading of the bill. Lord Mahott presented a petition from the Merchants, & r. of Hull, against the Orders in Council. Mr. Hankes, at the request of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, deferred his motion rcspeoting the grant of places in reversion till Monday next. Mr. Sharpe, after arguing that the sense of the House as to the justice and policy of the expedition to Copenhagen had been only partially expressed, that the conduct of Ministers therein was most atrocious, and that all the country bad gained, in Compensation for the loss of character, was tire hulLs of 16 ships of war, valued at 8/. a ton, moved an Address to his Majesty, stating these faets, and severely reprobating the expedition. Air. Stuart Wortley defended the conduct of Ministers, who had, in his opinion, done die most important service to their country by the expedition to Copenhagen. After a long debate, the numbers on a division were,— Ayes 64, Noes 224; majority against the motion 160. Mr. Stuart Wurtlei/ then moved a resolution of thanks to Ministers for the eminent service they had rendered their country in planning and ably directing the expedition to Copenhagen ; oil which a division took place,— Ayes 216, Noes 61; majority tor Ministers, 155.— Adjourned at six o'clock on Tuesday morning. TUESDAY, March 22.] Lord Folkestone postponed his motion respecting the ships taken from the Danes, which stood for to- morrow, till Tuesday next. Sir Charles Pole rose to submit to the House certain resolutions relative to the Offices at Greenwich Hospital, and re- stated his former observations on the abus « of the Charter, by the appointment of persons wholly unconnected with the sea- service to the most lucrative situations He more particularly adverted to the circumstance of the church livings in the gift of the institution having been generally conferred on gentlemen unconnected with the service, whilst there were many meritorious Chaplains in the Navy unprovided for. He trusted, the House would concur with him in declaring, that the regulations of the Charter, providing that all offices In the hospital should be held by sea- faring men, ought to be observed ; that it appeared from the 14th report of the Commissioners of Naval Enquiry, that these rules had been grossly violated; and that an humble Address be presented to his Majesty, praying that ha will be pleased to give orders that all the appointments in. the said hospital, or in the gift of the Governors, he made, as far as is practicable, from the officers and seamen of the British Navy. The Chancellor of the Exchequer observed, that there was an impossibility of complying with all the provisions of the Charter, and the necessary infringement of a part had introduced a negligence of the whole. He thought that the object of the lion. Baronet would be best attained by introducing into the resolutions an exception for the offices of Auditor, Surveyor, Organist, and Brewer. It might also be provided that no landman should be appointed to any office withont a month's previous notice in the news- papers that if any person qualified should present himself from the Navy, he might have the preference. Mr. Whi thread professed himself much gratified with the Right Hon. Gentleman's conceding so far to the principle of the resolutions ; and thought he should have preferred them as worded by the Hon. Baronet, he would not object to the amendment. The proposed regulation in the dis- posal of the Church Patronage belonging to the Hospital must gratify every friend to the Navy. Agreeable to the Recommendation of the Committee, the living of Simon- bourn, worth 4000L a year, at present held by Mr. Scot, who ne , er had any connection with the Navy, was to be divided into seven or eight livings, fur the purpose of being bestowed on old and meritorious Chaplains of the Navy. He would mention another gross abuse; the situation of Messenger to the Hospital, a very comfortable one, the duties of Which any obi seaman could discharge, had long been held by men who had not only never been at sea, but who had no claim on the public, whatever private services they might have rendered the individuals though whose interests t^ e funds of this noble institution were thus per- verted from their proper use. After a few words from Mr. Rose and Mr. Ward, Sir C. Pole consented to the alteration proposed, upon which the resolutions were passed, as amended by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. In a Committee to consider the trade of Ireland to the East Indies, leave was given to bring in a bill for regulating the Act of the '.' 3d of the King, imposing a forfeiture on East. India goods arriving in Ireland from any other place than the port of London. The. Indemnity Bill was read a third time, and paked. Counsel were severally heard in support of the petitions from Liverpool and London, against the Orders iu Council, till twelve o'clock, when the House adjourned. LONDON, • WEDNES D AY, MARCp 43. Dutch papers to the 13th inst. with accounts from Paris of so late a date a- the 1.1th, were' received last fight. The most important article they contain is the Declaration of Russia against Sweden ; in which the Emperor of Russia not only rails upon the King of Sweden for th? fulfilment of treaties long since annulled, but, in the true spirit of proselytism to the principles of France, says that he cannot allow of the neutrality of Sweden. The magnanimous Alexander, forgetting his own abject submission to the will of a self- created Emperor, whom he had encountered as his most deadly foe till beaten into that submission, calls it a crime in his " brother- in- law" to have a partiality for England, and threatens to conquer and despoil him of bis dominions, cloaking the threat under the impious declara- tion, that he will " employ all the. means which Providence has placed in his ha, ads for the welfare of his Empire,"— and this after he has meanly and basely endeavoured to seduce froiu their allegiance tlx; subjects of a virtuous Mo- narch, who is contending only for the independence and security of his own dominions. The Paris papers arc principally filled with details respecting the creation of an hereditary nobility in that empire.— The Emperor reserves to himself and his suc- cessors the right of making fresh Dukes, Counts, and Barons; but, in some instances, a certain term of public service is necessary, and in one case a stipulated income of 15,000 franks is a requisite. Among others, there is one decree by which the hereditary titles of Prince, Duke, Count, Baron, and Knight, are established. The principal Officers of State are to be raised to the dignity of Princes, and their eldest sous are to bti created Dukes; the Minis- ters, Senators, Councillors of State, & c. are to be Counts and Barons, and the Members of the Legion of Honour are to be Knights. The private letters from Paris state, that several Mer- chants have been arrested at Brussels and Antwerp, in consequence of an order frutn Pari;, whither they have been conveyed fir examination on charges of having infringed the laws, by transmitting goods and merchandize to England. Amongst the arretes of the former place is a Mr. Vandeveld, an eminent calico- printer. A letter from Gotten burgh of the date of March 16, received by a Mail which arrived this morning, briefly states as follows :— " A courier arrived last night from Hclsingborg, with intelligence that Denmark has declared war against this country. By a vessel from Memel we learn Russia has also declared war against us.— Twenty Swedish Mails for Hamburgh were returned here this morning from Elsineur. The King of Sweden has issued a Proclamation, forbidding all intercourse with Russia. Great preparations are making in Denmark for the invasion of this country. All the ships of war in this port w ill be free from the ice to- day, and proceed immediately for the Sound." A Mail from Malta arrived this morning, and Government have received dispatches from Lord Col- lingwood, of considerable importance. The former were biought by the Surinam frigate, and the latter by the Auckland packet. Lord Qollingwood was at Syracuse on the 8th of February, and there is reason to believe that the Rochefort and Toulon squadrons had not then joined. The Carthagena squadron has put into Palma Bay, Majorca. It was seen by the Scout sloop off Minorca; but encountering a violent, gale of wind, it was forced to run for Majorca, where it was left by the Hydra on the 15 th of February. The Imperieuse, of 36 guns, Lord Cochrane, had made a dash at two French corvettes and four merchantmen, in a bay on the coast of Naples, 3nd taken them all, and carried them into Malta. The account in the French Papers, of the capture of the Post of Scylla, i. i Calabria, seems to have been too well founded. It appears that our cruizers having been blown off the coast in a violent gale of wind, the French took the advantage of their temporary abience, and sent some heavy artillery along the coast, which were brought to bear so effectually upon Scylla, from the surrounding heights, that it became necessary to evacuate the Post. The sloop which the French stated to have been taken run the Calabrian coast was the Delight, Captain Stanrlfield: she was taken in the Faro of Messina. Having got aground whilst she was defending five Sicilian gun- boats that had fallen into the hands of the enemy, she was fired upon from the shore, and the Captain and most of • her rrew killed, when she was taken by the French.— Capt. Seaeombe, of the Glatton, who had rowed in his barge to assist the Delight, was wounded and taken prisoner, but released upon his parole, and went to Messina, where, we are sorry to say, he died of his wounds. Captain Dawne, of the Bellona," seeing the Delight crowded with French troops, worked up to her, and driving the enemy out of her, set fire to her, and destroyed her. Letters from Spain state that every description of colonial produce had become very scarce, and extravagantly dear, particularly the articles of sugar and cotton, the duties on the latter had, in consequence been greatly diminished, and bounties had been proposed to those who should find the means of procuring their importation into the country. Accounts were also received yesterday at the Admi- ralty, of a most gallant exploit performed on the coast of France by the boats of theJLmerald, Capt. Mait- lind. They cut out and destroyed several vessels under a heavy fire, and returned in safety to their ship. Intelligence was yesterday received at the Admi- ralty, of a very gallant action which was lately fought off the coast of Norway, between the Childers sloop of war, of IS gnrts, Capt. Dillon, and a Danish privateer of very superior force. Unfortunately the engagoment t » ok place so near the shore, that the privateer was enabled to effect her escape into port. Capt. Dillon is severely wounded, and ten of the men belonging to the Childers are either killed Or wounded. The Childers has brought away a prize galliot, which she bravely cut out of Fleckeroe. Letters from Bosttyi to the Qth ult. speak of the distress occasioned by the embargo throughout all the Trans- Atlantic States, and charge the Frcneh with endeavouring to force American seamen into their service. The effects of the embargo, short as its duration have been, have been more severely felt in America than we could have expected. Every article of home produce had declined considerably in value. Rice had fallen from 3 § dollars to 1J— Flour to two dollars per barrel— Tobacco 2J dollars per cwt. and other articles in proportion. The Guards, who were ordered to hold themselves in readiness for service in the Baltic, have been coun- termanded. A great sickness prevails among the military in Ipswich district; there being, it is said, not less than 1000 in ill health at the present time. Some transports, and a large quantity of ordnance stores, arc about to be sent out to North America. The Field Officers some time ago Gazetted for this service, all take their passage by this fleet. The Hon. Captain Blackwood is appoitned to the Warspite, of 74 guns, at Chatham. Captain Svkes, to the Diomede, Sir Edmund Nagle's flag ship. Sir . Tames Saumarcz will hoist his flag on board the Victory, of 100 guns, at Chatham, for the Baltic. One million of the Loan for Ireland has been already taken by Mr. Luke White, of Dublin. At a late meeting of the Freeholders of Roscommon, it was resolved to instruct their Representatives to support the Catholic Petition, which is to be presented to Parlia- ment bv Lord Grenville, in the Lords, and Mr. Grattan in the Commons. CITY BUSINESS.— Yesterday a Court of Common Council was held, at which the Thanks of the Court, Freedom of the City, and a Purse of 50 Guineas, were voted to Mr. Win. Rogers, late Acting Captain of the Windsor Castle packet, for his gallant conduct, and the crew under his command, on the 1st of October last, in the defence of his vessel, and" the capture of the French privateer La Genii: and also the further sum of 50 Guineas, to be disposed of as he shall. think proper, among the crew and relatives of the deceased.— A Petition to theilouse of Commons against the Bill tor building a Bridge across the River, from South- ampton- Street, iu the Strand, to tire opposite side, in the county of Surry, was agreed to, and ordered to be pre- seated by th. e Shjrrilfs, attended by the Remembrance*. Mr. Sheridan, having been advised by his Counsel that he could not prove that allegation of his petition against the return of Lord L'oohrane for West minster which relates to the ineligibility of the eldest son of a Scotch Peer to sit in Parliament, has declined the further prosecution of his petition, and the Noble Lord will in consequence remain in the undisturbed possession of his seat. Mr. Sheridan, it is said, has disposed of his interest in Drurv- lane Theatre to Mr. Jones, the Proprietor of the Dublin Theatrf. It is'further said that Mr. Sheridan is dangerously indisposed, and that his illness is dropsical. At yesterday's Board of Agriculture, Sir J. Sinclair, Bart;, was re- elected President; George Smith, Esq. Trea- surer; and Arthur Young, Secretary: after which the Earl of Macclesfield, the Earl of Egremont, Sir Charles Morgan, Bart.. W. S. Stanhope, and Benjamin Hobhouse, Esqrs. were elected Ordinary Members of this Institution. A dreadful fire, attended with most melancholy con- sequences, broke out « n Saturday morning, about' three o'clock, at Mrs. Smith's, milliner, in Middle Ron, Chelms- ford.— The inhabitants of the house, consisting altogether of females, seven in number, were in a most perilous situation.— They appeared at the windows of the second floor, for the first was on fire, as they had risen from their beds, uttering the most piercing shrieks. As the most likely means of rescuing them, two ladders were procured, and raised against the burning front of the house; but such was the danger of ascending to their relief, from the violence of the flames, that a momentary irresolution ensued among the spectators of their tremendously awful situation ; till, agonised by their screams, and actuated by the feelings of humanity to a contempt of personal safety, a young man, Mr. Henry Guy, and Mr. Sorrel, a near neighbour, made an at. te. mpt to preserve them. The for- mer succeeded in rescuing a little girl, about nine years old, niece to Mrs. Smith. The ; aid- servant, who bad got out of the garret window, and clambered to the roof of the house, was brought down by the latter. Robinson, a waggoner, who first discovered the fire, ascended a ladder, with the intent of bringing down Mrs. Smith ; but so extreme was her trepidation, shat she was incapable of usingjexertioir; and it became ncCessery to drag her from the window by force ; in doing which, owing to her con- vulsive struggles, she fell upon the pavement below, but miraculously without having any bones broken. Almost at the same instant two young ladies, Miss Williams antl Miss Wilkinson, rendered frantic by terror, precipitated themselves from the. windows into the street, and were so severely bruised, that, together with Mrs. Smith, much doubt is entertained of their recovery. Two amiable young ladies, Mis.* Woolmer, about 1.0, whose parents reside at Hornchurch; and Miss Eve, daughter of Mr, C. Eve, of Barnish- hall, became victims to the devouring element.— Notwithstanding the most strenuous exertions of the populace and the soldiers from the garrison, by six o'clock the houses of Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Peck, druggist, and Mr. Hill, shoemaker, adjoining, were totally destroyed; and those of Mr. Rood, plasterer, and Mr. Nash, hair- dresser, were so greatly damaged, that it will become necessary to rebuild them. Mrs. Wallis, a Lady who resided in Evesham- buildings, Somerstown, set fire to her head- dress on Monday evening, as she was stooping to pick up something which her child had thrown from the tea table ; her clothes were soon iu a blaze, and she was so much burnt before assistance could be given her, that after suffering excruciating agony, she- expired the: same night. Mrs. Able, an elderly Lady, of Ford's- gate, Islingto'n- road, was burnt to death on Monday night, by her gown catching fire ;- s she was dosing in her chair. Her shrieks brought . a servant toher, but she was unable to give her any effectu ® aasistance. BREAD.— Yesterday the Lord Mayor ordered the price of Bread to he reducid half an assize, making the quartern loaf one farthing cheaper than last. week. CORN- EXCHANGE, March 23. The supply of Wheat this day is short, hut fully equal to the defnand. Sales are dull. Fine samples keep their price, but other sorts rather give way. Barley and M. dt do not decline. Peas and Beans of the two kinds are lower. Rape Seed is dearer. The sup- plies of Oats are short, and this article maintains the late high prices. The terms of Flour are without alteration.

The Danes have also thrown olT the mask, and shewn themselves in their true colour, by declaring war against this country, the safety of which, in a great measure, now depends upon the spefcdy arrival of an English fieet in the Sound and the Belts.

Bv privaate letters received from Petersburg, it appears that all the British OiScers employed in the Russian navy have been ordered to repair to Moscow. They will probably continue there during the war with tins country, and as they are the best seamen in the service o* the Emperor Alexander, the absence of their si; ill and experience must cripple the exertions of his marine in every department. Dispatches were yesterday received from Mr. Rose, qur Minister Extraordinary to the United States of America. The contents' have not transpired ; but letters from Washington, of the 19th tilt, state that Mr. Rose has been extremely well received, and was proceeding in his negociatipn. Dispatches have been received frem our fleet off Lisbon, which was left all well oh the 10th instant. The Russians seemed to. be ready for sea, and dis- posed to come out of the Tagus. Our seamen arc anxious to have a brush with them. A verv gallant exploit has been performed hy the boats of the Confiance frigate, Capt. Yeo, in cutting • out a privateer from St. Andero, mounting one 24 pounder, and six ti pounders, having 50 men 011 . board, and 100 stand pf arm*. The loss of men 011 our part his been trifling, while that of the enemy is stated to h ' considerable. It is reported that Sir Arthur Wclleslcy is to have the chief command of the army in India. Cuvermiient, it is said, arc well assucd that the Ca; '. Kigvoa -. qu. ulro'i has not joined that from Rochcfort. Sir K.

GENRFTAL OKDRBS.— Horse- Guards, March 21, 1808.— At a General Court- Martial, & c. The Court- Martial having duly considered the Evidence given in support of the Charges against the Prisoner, Lieutenant- Gener- al Whiteloebe, his Defence, and the Evidence, he has adduced, are of opinion, that he is Guilty of the whole of the said Charges, with the exception of that part of the Second Charge which relates to the order that " the Columns should be unloaded, and that no firing should be\ permitted on ouy account." The Court are anxious that it may be distinctly under- stood, that they attach no censure whatever to the pre- cautions t iken to prevent unnecessary firing during the advance of the troops to the proposed points of attack, and do therefore acquit Lieuteuant- General Whitelocke of that part of the said Charge, Tlie Court adjudge, that the said Lieutenant- General IVhitclncke be Cashiered, and declared totally unfit and kiniterth// to seree his Majesty in any Military Capacity whatever. ; • - The King has beep. pleased to confirm the above Sentence, ami his Royal- Highness the Commander in CKef has re- ceived • his- Maj^ sty'S^ Command to direct that it shall be read at the head of every Regiment ii). his, service, and inserted in all Regimental Orderly Books, with a view of its bekoming a lasting memorial of the fatal consequences to which Otficcrs expose themselves, who, ill the discharge of the important. duji<; s confided ( o thfmi, are deficient in that zealr judgment, and perional exertion, which their Sovereign,- and their Country, have a right to expect from Officers entrusted with high commands To his Majesty, n ho has ever taken a most lively interest in the welfare, tile honour, aud reputation of bis troops, the recent failure in South America, has proved a subject « * ithe mOkStdiesu'tlelt, regret j hut it bus been a great con- solation to him, and his.

Majesty entertains no- doubt, that . had the exertions of his. troops in South America been directed by the same skill and energy which have so eminently distin- guished bis Cwnuiandew in other quarters of the world, the result of the' campaign would hive proved equally glo- riou - totthemsejves and beneficial to their country. Bv Command of his Royal Ilighne- s the Commander , ip Chief, - HARRY CALVERT, Major- Gen. and Adj.- Gen. of the Farces. Yesterday a Considerable quantity of woollen, cot- ton, and other bale goods, were shipped in the River, for Boston and New York. By letters from the out- ports of the Channel we learn, that the . Gibraltar Wvoy has baen chased by two enemies ships, arid it. is apprehended some of . them have b^ ep taken. From the situation iawhich ibis hostile force made its apppearail".-, it is to be apprehended that it lately escaped out of Brest, during the abscusg of our squadron usually occupied in the blockade of that port. Some particulars respecting the- intercsting subject of the movements of the Rochefort Squadron, were received this morning, in a letter from Gibraltar, of the Oth of February.— By the Prize- master of an American brig, detained by the Surinam ,1060 of war, it is stated, that oil the 29th of January, near Cape de Gatte, he fell in with a strainrevfleet of 6 '• ail of the line and a brig, steering to the Eiistwarb. On the 27th of the same month, the Master of an American fell in with a Fre ich squadron in latitude 3", longitude 10, 30, consisting of one three- deck- r, four J4' s, a frigate., and a brig. From the frigate he learnt that they had escaped from Roehfjfort on tfie 22d, and, after doubling Cape Finisterc had steered to the Southward, to avoid our look- out frigates. They continued a southerly course till they reached lat. 35, when they hauled to the Eastward, and fell in with the coa t of Barbary; on the., 28th, in the evening, they entered the Gut, and wer. e almost off Ceuta at twelve at night, when the Arawrican lost sight of them in a squall. The Ame- rican was bound to Marseilles, bat had been ordered back to Gibraltar by the Hydra frigate. As the Hydra had not seen the enemy, it is thought probable they may have passed to the eastward on the B, Hilary coast.

The length of their passages home has been so great, owing to the prevalence of contrary winds, that the intelligence we have by them has been in a great measure anticipated by the news from France. About 12.000 French troops had been assambled on the coast of Calabria. The little fortification of Scylla, gar- risoned bv about 200 English, was considered secure from attack. The Prince de Pignatelli came in the Auckland, on a special mission from the King of Sicily to our Government. By way of Gibraltar we hear that the number of French troops now in Spain amount to about QO. OOO; and that such is the apathy of the people, occasioned by the general disgust ex- cited bv their jvesent wretched government, that it was believed- the French might with half that number of men accomplish whatever projects they may have in view in that country. The Duke of Marlborough packet arrived on Tuesday froni Jamaica. * Same day arrived the Maria Christina, Swedish ship, from Chai leston, bound to Plymouth. She was captured by two French privateers, the St. Joseph, of 18 guns, and Potion, of 18 guns, on the 4th instant, iu lat. about 4,'), an « l retaken the next day by his Majesty's ship Mediator. There are several British passengers by this ship, who relate an anecdote highly honourable tn the character of British seamen. It seems that on the prospect of imme- diate war between England and America, 40 seamen came " ashore at. Charleston, from the Hornet American sloop of war, and claiming from the Consul his protection as Briti- h subjects, desired to enter for the BritLh navy. Several similar circumstances have, it is said, occurred in the American ports. A Danish ship from the coast of Africa, laden witn gold dust and ivory, arrived on Tuesday, prize to the Fame privateer^ of Fowey. , » .,., The Alligator, Boston, Nanev, and Wight, four vessels of the homeward- bound Mediterranean fleet, arrived list Tuesday. That fleet ( about 40 sail) under convoy of the Sinus frigate, having dispersed in iat, about 4?, by signal from theSirius, on the appearance of two enemy's line of battle ships. They were in chace of the Sirius when last seen. PLYMOUTH, March 25. On Monday came in, from oft' Ferrol, the Acliille, of 74 guns, Commodore Sir Richard King ; the Audacious, 74, Theseus, 74, and Alomene, of 33 guns, to refit and victual. ' I "* y left two frigates off Ferrol, to watch two line of battle ships in tint h' . rbour, which the Spaniards appear to be busily equip- Alemem ft- i ha. — M. ..... . ... ping ; but from the state they are 111, it must be several week bafore they can be ready to put to bet. ' On Monday also came in the Defiance, of 74 guns, from ; he Channel fleet, which is put into Torbav. of six sail of the line, escaped from Carthagena on the 11 th ult. and on the 25th was in Pal ma Bay, Majorca, hfae further brings intelligence that there lias been a terrible brush in the port of Reggio, in Cilabria,' between the Glattcn, 54, Capt. Seacombe, assisted by the Delight, 18, ( apt. Handheld, in which they both suffered severely. The latter was captured after Capt. Handheld had been killed, and the greater part of her crew killed or wounded. The Swallow, which is arrived from off Lisbon, brings accounts of a great scarcity in that cify. An American ship, laden with flour, having escaped the vigilance of our crnizers, and got in, there were great ragoiein^ s. Wednesday came in the French cliasse maiee Caroline, from l'Orient, anil a Spanish brig ( name unknown), both prizes to the Minerva frigate.— Five other foreign vessels have also come in here this week. Arrived the Brunswick, of 74 guns, and Leopard, of 50 guns, from Halifax. Arrived the Sirius, of 3G guns, with 14 sail of vessels under convov, all from Malta, Gibraltar, and Messina. They sailed the 28th ult. from Gibraltar, in company 38 sail, and oii the 17th inst. west of Scilly, they were chaced by two French frigates, when a signal was made to disperse, but it is a matter ol' doubt whether any of them were taken. This day arrived the Mediator, of 32 guns, from a cruize. It is said that she has sent two large Frenoh priva- teers into Falmouth ; and it is also reported, that a very- large " Danish East Indiamen has been carried into Falmouth by a privateer.

For the former, Mr. Knight, wlv) is anexeellent scholar, will be opposed by Mr. Lowndes; and the candidates for the Cormish Fellowship are Messrs. Bowyer and Hony. One ol the Fellow , who always pays a due regard to the statutes and privileges of the College, is said to have declar- d, that he will give his firm and zealous support to Mr. Knight, as he thinks his election w- i1 he conducive to its honor and it, dignity.

This morning, soon after eight o'clock, John Pitt was taken from the Felons Gaol to the usual place of execution, near this city, where the sentence of Death, passed on him at the late Assizes, was carried into effect. Since his condemnation, he has buhaved with gr « afc propriety, and made a confession of all the various robberies he has com- mitted. He was attended by the Chaplain of the Prison, and, before be was turned off, he addressed the spectators. He was a remarkably fine young man, only 27 years old, and lias left a widow and two young children to lament his fate. His parents are both living : 110 reproach attaches to them for the ignominious exit of their son, since they used every exertion to rear him in the paths of industry and virtue. Thomas White, a private in the 14th foot, and William Shaw, a private in the 17th foot, have this week been committed to the County Gaol, charged with stealing a Lamb, at Freshwater, in the Isle of Wight. *#* A.

THF.' THEATRE.— Our Manager, who has ever culled the Choicest fruits from the dramatic vineyard, for the amusement of his Salisbury friends, has at length given us Master BETTY, the young Roscius, who is engaged on the most liberal term;, previous to his performing at Bristol, and retiring, at least for some years, we understand, from a theatrical life.-— He has now come amongst us with talents, which originally astonished the public, ripened into perfection, with all those graces that first attracted general notice grown into maturity ; and perhaps it would be scarcely possible to conceive, or the mind to paint, a more fit and appropriate picture than he gave of Selim and Young Norval: here the strongest prejudice must be changed into instant admiration ; but little did we expect at his juvenile years such mind and strength as he threw into the Earl of Warwick, warming and expanding into powers scarce remembered in the most experienced veterans of the drama. We were happy to observe, that notwith- standing the short notice the public had, and their regu- lar engagements fixed, yet every admirer of science and talent waved all other considerations to attend his exquisite performances; and no doubt, as his stay is limitted to a few nights, the surrounding country will avail themselves of the opportunity of joining in the treat. The Assizes for the county of Devon and for the City of Exeter commenced on Monday, at the Castle of Exeter.— There were 40 prisoners on the Calender for trial, and the business at Nisi Prius was immense, 65 causes having been entered for the county ( of which 18 were for Special Juries) and three for the City of Exeter. The business on the Crown side was ended at half past nine 011 Friday night, but 18 causes were left for trial 011 Saturday, which occupied the Court till midnight. Five prisoners were capitally convicted, viz. William Tucker, for assaulting Maria Forest, an infant under ten years of age; Francis Thompson, for sheep- stealing; John Shepherd, for house- breaking, and stealing a watch; Benjamin Pain, for forging a bill of exchange for 501.; and William Taylor, for horse- stealing.
