VOL. LXI. MONDAY, October 14, 1782. 3157 THURSDAY'S POST. Since our last arrived a Mail from HOLLAND. Constantinople, August 26. H E desolation occasioned by the late terrible fire, which consumed more T ^ than half of this city, is now aggra- vated by the scarcity which has en- sued ; upwards of 500 mills were burnt, with the horses which worked them, and the grain they contained. In order to relieve the muititude of unfortunate persons who are in want of shelter and subsistence, some tents have been raised, and ovens built. It is computed that above 200,000 persons are reduced to the most shocking misery. The greatest ferment arose against the government, and if the Grand Seignior had not timely distributed considera- ble sums among the Janissaries, matters would have been carried to the last extremity. If to these domestic embarrassments be added the troubles of the Crimea, and the dispositions of Russia, it will be allowed that the Ottoman ministry must be in great perplexity. Vienna, Sept. 14. The fortifications in the greatest part of the towns in Hungary are destroying. All the artillery and ammunition of thofe places are sent to the arsenal of Buda, and that city will be made one of the most formidable fortresses in Europe. Hague, Oct. 1. The following is an extract of a private letter from Paris: Paris, Sept. 20. The following, Sir, is the de- plorable detail of some disasters which have happened at the siege of Gibraltar. " On the 9th inst. the land batteries began to play on the garrison. A well- directed and well- sustained fire made some progress every day. It was not doubted but as soon as the floating batteries began to fire, Gibraltar would be obliged to capitulate " On the 13th eleven floating batteries were ready to attack the place on the sea side; they carried in the whole 193 brass cannon, and above 150 others for ballast and exchange, of the same calibre of 14 poun- ders. " The whole firing at once from the land side, and that of the sea, afforded the most terrible and horrid spectacle : success did not appear doubtful, but about 11 o'clock the English began to fire red hot balls, 110 pieces of cannon pouring forth incessantly a shower of fiery bullets, put the batteries in the most horrible disorder. Three of the floating batteries blew up. with every thing in them. The rest endeavoured to cut their cables, in order to retire, but in vain, the ropes, masts, sails, were all burnt. It was impossi- ble to get away, and the shower of incendiary bullets still continued. Boats were sent as fast as possible to save the crews. The Prince of Nassau, who performed prodigies of valour, and who had lost the greatest part of his men, jumped, with several officers, into one of the boats, and 152 men belonging to his battery got into another; and the instant when the latter was moving off, a bomb fell into the midst of it, and the whether they will ever be able to arrive, both of them having lost their rudders, as well as being dismasted. The last letters from New- York mention, that up- wards of 20 ships from Newfoundland, and feveral from the West- Indies, were arrived there, and also several prizes ; that provisions were very plentiful and cheap. Yesterday an officer arrived from the West- Indies, with letters from Admiral Pigot. The whole of the British fleet in North America and the West Indies at this time, consists of 34 ships of the line, which are Rationed as under : Gone with Admirals Pigot, Hood, and Drake, to America. 98 Magnificent Formidable Prince George Barfleur Duke Namur Alcide Fame Marlborough Alfred Bedford Princessa Monarch Arrogant 98 98 jo 90 74 74 74 74 74 74 74 74 Conqueror Hercules Warrior Valiant Torbay Shrewsbury Prudent Repulse America Belliqueux St. Alban's Agamemnon 74 74 74 74 74 74 74 64 64 64 64 64 64 64 64 64 With Admiral Rowley at Jamaica.

The Ajax, Bedford, Torbay, Shrewsbury, Princes- sa, Royal Oak, and Prothee are all to come home next spring. The appearance again of Commodore Elliot off the French coast, it is believed will prevent the French convoys at St. Maloes and Morlaix from sailing. They had not quitted those ports on the 2d, when the Commodore was met by the Trinity privateer, which was carrying a prize to Jersey. Extract of, a letter from Kidwelly, in Carmarthenshire, Oct. 1, 1782. " A few days since some villains broke into the vestry- room of our parish church, and stole the whole of the plate used in administering the sacrament, with which they got clear off However, one of them who offered a gilt cup for sale the next day to Mr. Ed- wards, a silversmith, in Swansea, was immediately secured by him, and taken before a magistrate of that town, and after an examination of near three hours, committed to Carmarthen gaol. His name appears to be Evan Jones, and that he was formerly a servant at the Ivy Bush, Carmarthen. None of the other villains are yet found, tho' strict search is making after them." Married.— At Eglingham, in Northumberland, William Routh, Esq; of the Middle Temple, to Miss Carr, daughter of Thomas Carr, Esq; of Eshot, in Northumberland. Died. About a fortnight ago, at Hurley- Hall, near Atherstone, in Warwickshire, greatly advanced in years, the Rev. Mr. Jackson, one of his Majesty's justices of the peace, and rector of Witley Magna, in the county of Worcester. We hear that he has left an estate for the institution of a new Professorship in the University of Cambridge, and the encouragement of the physic gardens there. Saturday, at Barton, near Stafford, aged 78, the Rev. Mr. Walter Collins. Tuesday, at Bristol, Miss Coleman, of Newing- ton- Butts. boat sunk without a single man being saved. The next day four other floating batteries were blown up; and at eight o'clock the eleventh was set on fire, and instantly consumed. The loss of men is estimated at 1500 or 2000. " This terrible check hath not discouraged the besiegers ; they are preparing to carry the place by as- sault, and the soldiery are not dismayed at it, The fire still continues furiously on the land side. " The combined fleet is in the Bay of Algesiras; it is difficult for the garrison to receive any succours; the English fleet is advancing ; it will probably arrive before the end of this month, and then another dread- ful scene will be exhibited." IRELAND. Dublin, Sept. 28. The Dublin corps of volunteers, who assembled yesterday in Eustace- street, resolved a- gainst the measure of the Fencibles ; which is a con- firmation of what was lately asserted, that his Grace of Leinster had refused, when solicited, to accept the command of a Fencible regiment. His Grace has publicly declared, he never would have voted for with- drawing the 5000 troops, but from a firm persuasion that the volunteers of Ireland were fully adequate to the defence of their country. An order was yesterday made by the Privy- Council, to encourage a colony from Geneva to settle in this country. Some of the most respectable citizens from that oppressed republic have been soliciting an asylum in this rising land of liberty, for a number of their inhabitants, who give the preference to Ireland, and propose to bring with them the arts and manufactures that have fo long rendered that city the envy of Eu- rope. LONDON, Tuesday, Oct. 8. Advices were received on Saturday of the arrival of several of the homeward- bound Jamaica fleet at their places of destination; particularly of 10 at Bristol, others at Hull, Lancaster, & c. and it is hoped the re mainder will escape any danger from the enemy. Yesterday an express arrived in town from Dover, with advice of the Jamaica Planter, Capt. Hay, and the Mary Ann, Innes, two of the Jamaica fleet, being arrived off there. By an express received last night from Plymouth, we learn, that 16 ships, part of the Jamaica fleet, are arrived there. By the above vessels we are sorry to learn, that the Dumfries, Capt. Currie, belonging to the same fleet, bound to London, foundered in the gale off the Banks of Newfoundland, and very few of the crew were saved. . Orders are sent from the Board of Admiralty to the commanding officers at Plymouth, Portsmouth, & c. to give every assistance to the Jamaica fleet; and if they press any of the hands, to supply their place with a sufficient number of men from the King's ships, to bring them to their moorings. The Pegase man of war is already sailed in order to succour the disabled ships that were dismasted off the Banks of Newfoundland; and we are informed, the Europe of 64 guns, and the Cato of 58, are likewise ordered immediately to sea for the same purpose. The Centaur and Ramillies have received fo much damage, by the hurricane, that it is very doubtful The wretched forcats, or convicts who had been condemned to the gallies, and were brought to the camp before Gibraltar, with a promise of liberty and pecuniary rewards to those who should survive the ser- vice upon which they were to be employed, have been cut to pieces. Two hundred of these unhappy crea- tures were sent out to drop the anchors of the floating batteries, on the 13th ult. within musket- shot of the Old Mole; so that they were as greatly exposed to the fire of the garrison, as it was possible for men to be : the consequence was, that a dreadful havock was made among them ; and few indeed of them will ever pre- fer their claim to the promised reward. A Spanish merchant received a letter last week from Cadiz, which says, that the Spaniards vow vengeance against the Moors for supplying the garrifon of Gi- braltar with provisions; that attribute to them partly their ill success in not having taken that fort; the Spaniards believing, that had not the Moors sup- plied them with provisions, they would have surren- dered some months ago. The Prince of Nassau, who commanded the gun- boats in the attack of Gibraltar on the 13th ot last month, is the same officer that commanded the troops that invested Jersey last year. The several camps are to break up, on account of the very cold and wet season, as soon as Lord Howe ar- rives from the relief of Gibraltar, which is not, how- ever, expected before the latter end of the next month : routes and winter quarters for the several regiments, are now making out at the War- office. Extract of a letter from Versailles, Sept. 30. " The Comptrolleur General des Finances of France has reason to lament that the King gave leave to his brother, Comte d'Artois, to serve at the siege of Gibraltar, as his Royal Highness draws without the least mercy on the Treasury. He seems not to know the value of money : his table alone occasions a prodigious expence ; he has 60 covers every day, to which he invites the Generals, Brigadiers, Colonels, and the officers of his own guards; the Captains are also invited in turn, and dine at a second table with his guards, who are all gentlemen, and with the lords and gentlemen of his household. When his Royal Highness went to view the floating batteries, previous to the late unsuccessful attack, he ordered 1000 pistoles to be distributed among their crews; 1000 more a- mong the company of the frigate which carries the flag of the naval commander in chief, Don Bonaventura Morena, and 50 to his boat's crew; upon the whole, the Minister of France complains, that this trip has already cost very little short of 1,500,000 livres ; so that it will be in vain, he remonstrates, to retrench the expences of his Majesty's household, if the Princes of his blood are permitted to swallow up all the savings." The King of Denmark, in order to encourage trade, has lately published an edict, remitting the duty on ships that winter in the ports of his domi- nions. A letter from Oporto, received by a merchant in Dublin, says, " By a temporary order, Irish manu- factured goods may be imported into the Portuguese ports. This order is not established by an act of state, or royal edict, so that it may be instantly recalled. Such is the precarious tenure by which we hold this almost only object of the free trade our sister kingdom has permitted us to participate with her." A letter from Harwich says, that they have re- ceived advice there by a neutral ship, that by the late high winds, the men of war in the Texel have received very considerable damage ; and that the shipping a- long the coast of Holland have suffered greatly; three Dutch ships are on shore near Flushing, and it is feared they will not be got off. It is said to be the squadron under Paul Jones which sailed from Boston in August last, and not three French frigates, which surprised and plundered the forts in Hudson's Bay. After dismantling the forts, and taking away every moveable valuable, Jones left part of the troops on Digge's Island, near the en- trance of the Bay. Two vessels of the Company's had left Hudson's Bay but a few days before the plun- derer arrived there. 9 On Wednesday the Lady of the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Peterborough was safely delivered of a daughter, at Trinity- lodge. We have Authority to declare, that Mr. Spilsbury, Chymist, of Soho- Square, London, from a Consciousness of the im- proved Virtue of his Antiscorbutic Drops, is determined to raise their Price, on the 1st of Auguft, 1783, viz. the 4s. Bottle to 55. and the 7s. to 7s. 6d.

A fresh act of her Imperial Majesty's clemency and benevolence appeared last Tuesday ( in commemoration of her illustrious an- cestor, Peter the Great) by the publication of an ukase, or imperial edict, wherein all persons indebted to the Crown in a sum not exceeding 500 roubles, are forgiven ; all law suits with the Crown, which have lasted above ten years, are suspended ; and prisoners for all inferior crimes released. Constantinople, Sept. 6. On the evening of the 26th of August, the deposed Grand Vizir was sent into exile to Demotica, nigh Adrianople: his successor, Jejen Mehemmet, has entered into that important office with great applause, and bids fair to quell the fermentation and discontent of the populace. It now appears that the late conflagrations have actually de- molished about two thirds of the city. [ Thus far London Gazette.] Berne, Sept. 13. The Grand Duke and Duchess of Russia arrived here on the 7th, accompanied by the Prince and Princess of Holstein, with a very large suite, desiring to be kept incog. They stopped at an inn in this town, from which, after dinner, they went to see the ice mountains of Grindenwald. On the fame day the Duke and Duchess of Glocefter, with the young Prince and Princess, their children, ar- rived here, and spent fome days in viewing this town and its environs. The Duke and Duchess of Russia returned on the 10th from the ice mountains, very much fatigued from the tour they made to the top of those very high mountains. They did not refuse to gratify the great desire the people shewed to see them, and passed fome hours at the redoubt, where the Grand Duchess opened the ball with the Duke of Glo- cester. On the 11th, thefe illustrious travellers de- parted from hence. Every person who had the honor of approaching them, has passed the greatest enco- miums on the very great courtesey they shewed to all those who crouded about them. Trieste, Sept. 5. Commerce begins to encrease here every day rapidly : they are cutting a canal of 500 fathoms length, and are building dwelling- houses and storehouses upon the banks of it. Among other warehouses which are erected there, is one Irish house called the Adolphia, which trades with feveral towns of the Levant, and some of Egypt. The As- surance Company of Verpoorten are equipping their first ship for America, whose loading will consist of the productions of the country, such as corn, cloth, iron, & c. They continue to export great quantities of copper for France for the bottoming of their ships. LONDON, Saturday, Oct 12. " By the late express from India, there are authentic advices from Bengal of the 19th of April, which give the most pleasing accounts of the present flourish- ing. state of that government. By these we learn, that there is the greatest prospect of an immediate peace; but that in the mean time they abound in every species of resource for carrying on the war; having been able, for some time past, to send monthly to Madras five lacks of rupees ( 62,5001.) besides o- ther requisites. The Mahrattas, weary of an unsuc- cessful war, have declared for pacifick measures; and the late misunderstandings with the Nizam, and some others of the Country powers, arc now so happily ta- ken away, that, should Hyder Alli alone prove re- fractory, they have all engaged to unite with the Com- pany's servants in bringing him to reason. Another favourable circumstance is, that none of them show the least inclination to see a French interest; ever re- es- tablished in their country. This favourable state of affairs, so different from the late distracted and threatening prospect of things, is entirely owing to the activity of the prefent Supreme Council, and that perfect harmony among themfelves, which gives them weight and consequence with the native powers. But while thole gentlemen have been so attentive to measures of peace and conciliation, they have not neglected the commercial concerns of their employers; their investments being already compleated, not only for this year, but likewise for the next; a degree of forwardness in that business never known before. The island of St. Helena, belonging to our East- India company, which it is suggested the Dutch have formed an expedition against, has a garrison of 800 men; besides its own natural strength, to withstand an attack. The French Ministry have received authentic ad vice, by a frigate arrived at L'Orient from Boston, in 23 days, that the French squadron, confiding of 13 ships of the line, and two frigates, under the com- mand of the Marquis de Vaudreuil, had arrived safe at Boston, except the Magnificent man of war, of 74 guns, which had been lost by the ignorance of the pilot, and every soul on board with it.— These let- ters further add, that the combined fleet, under Don Cordova, remained at anchor in Algesiras Bay, the 25th ult. lying there with a determination to dispute the relief of the garrison with Lord Howe. They keep several frigates cruising, to apprize them of the approach of the British fleet, as it is thought they mean to come out to engage. Admiral Pigot was arrived at New- York with 21 sail of the line, befides 17 frigates. Yesterday in the afternoon a report was circulated, said to have come by the way of France, that Admi- ral Pigot had fallen in with, and taken the whole of the rich Spanish galloons, in their passage home from La Vera Cruz. English Chronicle. Extract of a letter from Plymouth, OS. 7 " On Saturday evening 12 sail of the homeward- bound Jamaica fleet came in from the eastward ; two or three were dismasted " I have just heard that the Ville de Paris is ex- pected every day. She has got the Centaur in tow, with some crippled merchantmen. " The Ville de Paris weathered the storm owing to her having the masts of a 64." Yesterday the packet of letters from Jamaica, which was saved out of the Ramillies, was brought to the General Poft- Office, and the letters delivered out. Extract of a letter from Cork, Sept. 30. " Laft Saturday the Friends Adventure, with the King's stores, for Gibraltar, put into Cove ; she was one of Lord Howes fleet, and having carried away her main top mast, parted from his Lordship last Tuesday, about two o'clock, lat. 49, 9. long. 11, 36. W-. The fleet consisted of 34 or 37 sail of the line, besides fif ties and frigates ; the Pegasus not having joined, hav- ing had heavy gales of wind. He left the fleet rather in a stragling situation, two of them three deckers ( one of which wore a flag) top- masts struck or carried away. The wind at S. W.

A letter from the Hague has the following article ; Their High Mightinesses seem alarmed at the pre- parations making in Denmark for war, it being sup- posed, that a rupture will happen between the States and the Danes; and therefore their High Mightinesses have sent orders to their Ambassador at Copenhagen to demand the reason of such vast preparations, and a- gainst what power they intend to employ their forces, A courier is daily expected from Copenhagen with an answer to the demand made by the Dutch Ambasssa- dor." By advices from Madrid, received by the way of France, we learn, that as soon as the news of the floating batteries, & c. arrived at that capital, a coun- cil was called, at the conclusion of which, a procla- mation was issued, ordering all prisoners confined in the different gaols of the kingdom, to be liberated ( those belonging to the Holy Inquisition excepted,) mass to be said in all places of public worship for three days and nights without intermission, recom- mending the people to fast and humilitate themselves,' to implore the assistance of Providence to protect the fleets and armies of his most Catholic Majesty against, the numerous host of Heretics they shortly expected to encounter.

Extract of a letter from London, Saturday Evening. " The advices which have arrived this week from the East Indies are of a very agreeable nature, and promise to be soon followed with more substantial good news. What I can collect from the private let » ters, is as follows : — " The Sultan and Magnanime men of war, were safe arrived at Madras, with the Company's ships under convoy. The French fleet had luckily left that coast the day before their arrival, and were gone to the Mauritius to refit the damages sustained in their ac- tion with Sir Edward Hughes.- The French had landed about 1400 men, who had joined Hyder Alli. By our fleet which was arrived, Sir Eyre Coote would receive a reinforcement of Lord Seaforth's regiment of Highlanders, which would give him 800 as good sol- diers as ever went from Europe. Sir Eyre Coote was pursuing his operations against Hyder Alli. Every thing was quiet and peaceable in Bengal; 55 lacks of rupees were arrived, and 75 more lacks were said to be on the road ; which is supposed to be the treasure found at Bejye Ghur, the capital of Cheyt Sing's country. This supply had made money plenty again { with it, and the money and merchandize taken at the Dutch factory of Chinsura, the Company were pro- vided for the shipping investments for this and the next year. The ship Valentine was dispatched, and sailed for Europe on the 11th of April. — From Poonah ( the Mahratta Court) they write, that the Mahrattas are thoroughly tired of the war, and had given full powers to their Minister to conclude a peace with Mr. Anderson, the British Resident there. They say fur- ther, that the Nizam ( Soubah of the Decan) and the other nations bordering, on the English possessions, are so jealous of Hyder Alli's growing power, and his connexions with the French, that they are de- sirous of uniting against them. Some letters add, that Hyder Alli, concious of this rising opposition, was desirous to strike up a peace with us, and had actually made some overtures to Sir Eyre Coote. " The Parnassus, which was the finest ship in the Jamaica fleet, belonging to Mess. Longs and Drake, of this city, and laden with 700 hhds. of sugar, be- side other goods, was taken by the French after the violent storm ; but we have the satisfaction to hear this day, that she is retaken by the Viper privateer^ of Liverpool, and brought in there." Yesterday was married, Mr. William Holder, grocer, to Miss Workman, of this city. On Thursday died Mrs. Baylis, of King- Street,- ins this city. On Sunday died at Tewkesbury, in this county, D'Avenant Ankins, Esq. The 9th of this instant, at Carmarthen, Mrs. Da- vid, relict of the late Albert David, of this town, Esq; was seized, whilst at breakfast, with a paralytic fit, and expired soon after. The Rev. Mr. Bridge, of Leominster, was, by the Bishop of that diocese, presented to the living of Weobly, void by the death of the Rev. Mr. Price. At the Michaelmas sessions for this county, the fol- lowing persons were convicted, viz. Richard Walker, for leaving his family, and William Stocking for as- saulting Mary Short , to be imprisoned one month. William Buttess convicted of felony, to be whipped, and imprisoned twelve months, at the end of which time he is to be whipped and discharged. Hester Malpass, convicted of felony, to be imprisoned one month, and privately whipped. Thomas Griffin, ordered to be discharged out of custody, and from the power of the regiment wherein he has inlisted, he being an apprentice to his father, Anthony Griffin, of Cheltenham. Jane Stiles, acquitted, and ordered to be discharged. And at the quarter sessions for this city, Joseph Reeve and Mary Ludlow were convicted of felony, and ordered to be publicly whipped., Price of Corn the same as last Week, MONMOUTHSHIRE.
