They occupy the second ranks in the drama ; to which on the whole they do great credit. But every thing is lost in the blaze and luxuriance of Allegranti's performance. She was re- ceived with the warmest applause ; and deserved all that could be given her. There were no new dancers; but the favourites of last year were cordially received. The house has undergone alterations, which render it one of the most elegant and magnificent theatres in Europe; and will transmit the name of Novosielski ( difficult as it is) to some future generations.

When it is considered, that no Share can be purchased under Twenty- four Shillings, and" that those who cannot afford, or I will not risque so much, have only the pretent Opportunity to be in the Way of Fortune to acquire very capital Sums, the Proprietors trust, that their Gift, ( worth the whole Price of the Work) will be acceptable to their Patrons, who may be I assured, that their Promise will be fulfilled with Honour, I Punctuality, and Integrity.

The Responsibility and Fidelity of George Hicks 1 and Co. have been experienced in many State Lotteries On Monday evening a place of entertainment, called the Royal Circus, was opened in St. George's Fields, by that cele- brated horseman, Hughes, ( son of Mr. Barnard Hughes, of Glocester). The whole in an improvement on the'plan of Astley. The proprietor of this place has substituted children, tor Astley's puppets, and the spectators were filled with asto- nishment at the perfection which theft: little creatures displayed In their parts. The house was as full as it could hold. Saturday evening the Opera- housc was opened for the sea- son, wih a new comick 0pera, called Il Convito. THURSDAY's POST. I s This day arrived the Mails from France and Flanders. I 1 From the Camp at St. Roch, 0ct. 14. ^^ JOGO^/ OO^ H E ] 2th instant the impetuosity of I c O js g/ the winds and rain, was so violent that I ^ TSVTR (?) combined fleet, cruising at the en- | 0 ' p yfc trance of the Bay of Gibraltar; were I iQZ yg greatly damaged; the Triomphant, a Spa- | t nish ship of 74 guns, run a- ground, on I t Europa Point, and sunk. General El- t liot through his generous care saved the I crew and took out the provisions and am- I t munition. After which, by firing red- hot balls on the hull, I he sunk her to the bottom. The Majestueux, under the com- I mand of the Viscount de la Rochechouart narrowly escaped the 1 same fate, but lost her mainmast, and was towed by a frigate 1 into Algesiras. The fleet retired towards the entrance of the I road of that port, unable to resist the storm. On the thirteenth, I the fleet of Lord Howe, ( the sea being very rough and boiste- I 1 rous) appeared shattered and in bad condition, in order to en- I ter the port of Gibraltar, but was driven with his transports I * by the impetuosity of the winds into the Mediterranean. His I 1 ships appeared to be roughly treated. We counted 33 men of I war and a number of frigates, one of which, and four tran- I sports, entered the port of Gibraltar.— Madrid Gaxette. LONDON, Tuesday, Nov. 5. The men of war which sailed from Portfmouth on Friday I last, are supposed to be gone to the Western Islands, in order I to search for the Ville de Paris, as there is every reason to be- I lieve the French have dispatched some ships to sea for the pur- I pose of intercepting her, in consequence of the information I which they received from the Ariel frigate, that captured the I Hector, Cox, on the 26th of September, in lat. 44, 54, | long. 30, which was four days after the Hector parted from I her. Capt. Cox fell in with the Ville de Paris on the 19th of I N September, and kept company with her till the 26th, when at I ten o'clock that night, they lost sight of her. She was then I 150 leagues to the westward of Corvo; the preceding day fbe I " hoisted a signal of distress, but it being blowing weather, and I Ac Hector dismasted, she was not able to go near enough to I speak with her ; but they understood that it was Capt. Cur- I genven's intention to make the Azores if possible. It is me- I lancholy to observe, that neither the Centaur nor Glorieux I were in company with her, therefore most probably they are I both foundered. The Ville de Paris did not lose her mast I during the hurricane, but rolled them away two days after- I wards. This morning some dispatches were received from Lisbon, 1 which were brought over in the Sacramenta de Silva, arrived I at Dover, after a passage of 14 days; but they give no ac- I count of the Ville de Paris. Extract of a letter from Capt. Kempthorn, Commander of his Majesty's packet boat the Antelope, dated Port L'Orient, Oct. I 21. " We sailed from Lisbon the 29th of September, and on I the 16th instant, about eight o'clock in the morning, fell in I with an American privateer, called the Buccaneer, Capt. I Pearson, belonging to Salem. She gave chace and came up with us in the afternoon, and made us strike our Colours, the 1 mail and Government's dispatches having first been thrown I ' ..; the privateer mounted 18 nine- pounders, and is I the swiftest sailer I ever met with." Extract of a letter from Portsmouth, Nov. 4. " The following ships of war are under orders here for sail- 1 ing, in the course of a few days ; and the West- India fleet will I accompany them to a certain latitude, viz. Romney, of § 0 I guns, Commodore Elliot; Europe, 64, Duckworth; Rain- I bow, 44, Trotlope ; Mediator, 44, Luttrell; Resistance, 44, I King ; La Prudente, 38, Fitzgerald ; Alcmene, 32, Doug- I las ; and Eurydice, 24, Courtney." Yesterday the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty put his Majesty's ship Grafton in commission, and gave the com- mand of her to Capt. Stair Douglass, who came home some time ago from the Leeward- Islands Captain of the Triumph. The Lords of the Admiralty have put his Majesty's new ship Scipio, of 64 guns, now in the river, into commission, the command of which is given to Capt. Man, and she is fit- ting out for sea. Sunday afternoon, as his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales was returning in a post- coach and four from the Queen's palace to Windsor, turning into Piccadilly, one of the wheels caught the gate ; the violence of the jirk threw his Royal Highness against the front glass, and cut him very much ; the gentleman who was with him was also much hurt. His Royal Highness returned immediately to the palace, and we have the pleasure to inform the public he was so well recover- ed, as to go to Windsor yesterday afternoon. Last Saturday evening an elderly gentleman was going up Holborn, when a fellow suddenly threw himself across the way, and the gentleman fell over him. Two men genteelly dressed went to help him up, whilst he that threw him down ran off. When the gentleman had recovered himself, he ex- amined his pockets, and found his purse, with ten guineas and some silver, and his watch, were gone ; but the two that helped him up, were gone off likewise. On Friday as a gentleman was standing by the stairs Black- wall to see the convicts put on board, one of them picked his pockct of his watch, which the gentleman immediately missed, and offered half a guinea to have it restored, but they all de- nied it; on which the city serjeants who guarded them to Blackwall went on board the vessel, and at length found it upon a man, he having received it of the thief, and it was re- turned to the gentleman. On Wednesday night last the Bath and Bristol coaches were robbed between Maidenhead and Reading, by four highway- men, who took from the passengers all their money, except one poor man, who declared in a piteous tone of voice, that a single half guinea was his whole stock ; on which the robbers, moved at his distress, returned it him, and then rode off. Saturday afternoon, during the removal of the debtors from Clerkenwell- Brideweil to New- Prison, a fine, who had ingra- tiated himself into the favour of the jailors by his civil and quiet behaviour, was entrusted with the key of the inward gate, which he opened, and let all the felons into the court, where they instantly overpowered the keepers of the outward gate, cne of whom was stabbed and cut several times with a knife, so that it is thought his right- arm will be for ever use- less to him. After this they knocked down another keeper, and robbed him of his money. Letitia Holland, who was sentenccd to be executed for the riot at Lord Mansfield's, in July 1780, but pardoned on condition of imprisonment, hav- in ; given notice of the intended escape; in revenge for it the ruffians used her in a manner too barbarous and too indecent for description. Twcnty; five prisoners then got out, and went oft' in a body through Corporation- Row, into St. John's- Street, & c. Five of them were afterwards retaken, and are now double- ironed, and chained to the floor of the strong ward. MONDAY, November 11, 1782.

Ships of war, together witli a large supply of powder, being landed at the same time, and the wants of the garrison amply provided for in every respect, I proposed taking advantage im- mediately of the Easterly wind, which had prevailed the two or three preceding; days, to- f returning through the Straits to the Westward. " At break of day on the yoth, the combined force of the enemy was at a little distance to the N. E. The fleet being at that time so nearly between Europa and Ceuta Points, that there was not space to form in order of battle on either tack, I repaired the Straits, followed by the enemy. " The wind changing next morning ( the 2oth) to the Northward, the combined fleets, consisting of 45 or 46 ships of the line, still retained the advantage of the wind. " The Britsh fleet being formed to leeward to receive them they were left, uninterruptedly, to take the distance at which they should think git to engage. They began their cannonade- at sun set, on the van and rear, seeming to point their chief attention on the latter, and continued their fire along their whole line, at a considerable didance, and with little effect, until ten at night. It was returned occasionally from different ships of the fleet, its their nearer approach at times afforded a more favourable opportunity for making any impreisson upoa them. " The enemy hauling their wind, and the British fleet keeping on all night with the full sail directed before the com- mencement of their fire, the fleets are now much separated j but as 1 conceive the knowledge of the relief of Gibraltar may be of much consequence at this time, I take the opportunity^ while it is now almost calm, and the ships are refitting the da- mages they have sustained in their masts rigging by the enemy's fire; to forward this dispatch without further delay. " P. S. The Minerva naval transport with the baggage of the regiments embarked in the ships of war, separatcd from the fleet in the night of the 13th, and was, I hear, since taken by the enemy. 12s. 6d. lis. 2d. - us. 8d. 13s, 13s. 12s. lis, 14s. - 12S.

Henry Duncan, of his Ma- jesty's ship the Victory, arrived this § morning with dispatches from Lord Viscount Howe, and also with dif- patches from Capt. Curtis, of the Brilliant, who commanded the bri- gade of seamen at Gibraltar, of which the fol- lowing are extracts. Extract of a triplicate of a letter from Lord Viscount Howe to Mr. Stephens, dated on board the Victory, Oct. 21, 1782, . Cape Spartcl, E. N. E. 40 leagues. RESERVING the more particular account of my proceed- ings to be delivered on my return to England, I send the Peggy cutter now to acquaint you, for the information of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that after much delay by contrary winds, and very unfavourable weather, the fleet arrived off Cape St. Vincent on the 9th instant. " According to the advices previously obtained, I had rea- son to expect to find the enemy Off Cape St. Mary's; but by authentic intelligence I had then an opportunity to procure, I learned that the combined fleets, consisting of 50 sail of three and two decked ships, had taken a station, some time before, in Gibraltar Bay. " On the morning of the 11th, the fleet entered the Straits, and the van arriving off Gibraltar Bay a short time af- ter the close of day; a very favourable opportunity offered for the store- ships to have reached their destined anchorage without molestation from the enemy ; but, for want of timely atten- tion to the circumstances of the navigation, pointed out in the instructions communicated by Capt. Curtis, only four of the 31, which had kept company with the fleet 011 the passage, ef- fected their purpose. " Very tempestuous weather in the night of the loth had put two of the enemies two- decked ships on shore, a third lost her fore- mast and bowsprit, and a fourth had been driven under the works of the garrison and captured : two more went out of the Bay to the Eastward. With the rest of their force they put to sea the evening of the 13th to interrupt the introduction of ,- the remaining store- ships ; and having the wind at W. N. W. they bore down upon the fleet, then off Fangerolle, in order of battle. . Upon sight of the fleet standing to the Southward) about nine that night, they appeared to haul to the wind on the larboard tack. In the morning of the 14th, the fleet being to the Southward uf the enemy six or seven leagues, and the wind changing foon after to the Eastward, the opportunity was taken to pass such of the store- ships as were then with the fleet into the Bay. " On the night of the t8^ the rest of the store- ships, which had been ordered to a special rendezvous with the Buffalo, 011 light of the enemy on the 13th ( the Thompson victualler, that had parted company in the mean time, excepted) were like- wise anchored is Rosia Bay. The troops embarked 141 the Extract of a letter from Lord Viscount Howe, to Mr. Stephens on board the Victory, 0ct. 24, 1782. SIR, DEEMlNG it essential to his Majesty's service, that the debarkation of ths. troops and stores at Gibraltar* should be communicated to the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty as soon as possible, I sent the Peggy Cutter the 21ft instant, with a general report of my proceedings, in exe- cution of my orders to that period. A duplicate of that report went in the Buffalo, ordered for England the next day, on account of the state of her wounded masts; and I encloce a triplicate of the same by this convey- ance, to connect the relation of the different circumstances re- specting the employment of the fleet, which have since occur- red. Some of the ships having sustained more damage in their masts and yards by the fire of the enemy on the 20th, than was at first observed, the necessary repairs were not completed until the 22d. But as it was mostly calm, in the mean time no advantage could have been made of an opportunity to fol- low the enemy ( who, when last feen 011 the 21st, were standing off to the N. N. W. by the wind on the ( larboard tack) it the masts had been earlier secured. A list of the killed and wounded will likewise accompany this dispatch. I have only to express my regret, that the lit- tle confidence the enemy shewed in their superiority, by keep- ing always as near as they could haul to the wind, prevented the full effect of the animated exertions, which I am sure, would have been made by every officer and seaman in the fleet under my command, if they could have closed with their opponents: but as I judged such nearer approach could not then be seasonably attempted, I made no change in the dispo— sition of the ships, as formed at first to receive the enemy. " For similar reasons I do not dwell more particularly on the merits of the flag officers of the fleet on the same occasion, being certain they would disregard any commendations of their efforts against an enemy who declined giving them an oppor- tunity to discharge the duty of their stations, in repelling a more serious attack 1 but at the same time I am reminded of the advantages derived to his Majesty' service, from the ex-' tensive knowledge of the difficult navigation within the straits acquired by, and the unremitted assiduity of, my first Captain, Levison Gower. Having had but very little wind from the N. E. chiefly since the 21st, 1 cannot much longer, with prudence, ( under the reduced state of the water and stores in many of the ships) make the pursuit of the enemy's fleets, which, I fuppose, are on their return to Cadiz, the first object of my attention, Capt. Duncan, of the Victory, taking his passage in the Latona,' is charged with these dispatches; and as Capt. Curtis, who was sent off to me for the last time on the 19th, with Gen. Elliott's confidential sentiments, could not be put on shore again, in consequence of the return of the enemy from the Eastward that morning, I have appointed him to command the Victory for the time being, until their Lordships' pleasure is signified for his future conduct.

Extract of a letter from a gentleman just returned from France, Nov. 6. " I returned to England last week; and you may be assured I should not so long have been silent, if I could have furnished you with any valuable intelli- gence from the places I have visited- " I was much surprized at the political turn given to the general conversation in Paris ; but prejudices of this sort are nearly over ; and a Frenchman in the present reign may say, what a subject of Lewis XV. dared hardly think. In general however, we heard nothing severe against the French Court ; little else indeed but effusions. of that constant and uniform hatred, which subsists between themselves and the Spaniards, notwithstanding their forced and unnatu- ral alliance. The King of Spain, they told us, was weak and obstinate ; under the direction of his con- fessor, a monk in English pay, who disposed every thing for the advantage of that nation. The Prince of Asturias, they declared, was a partizan of Eng- land. The officers and soldiers before Gibraltar, were; till the French did them the honour to join their arms, an assembly of the veriest cowards in nature, and who had so little hopes of seeing an end to their undertaking, that they had built a little city at St. * Roch ; and had even planted asparagus, which could yield them no produce ' till the third year. ' O si ' le Roi les auroit defendu de se faire la barbe avant ' que de prendre Gibraltar, ils auroient paru a cette heure - comme des Cordeliers.'* Such is the ge- neral tenor of conversation in the first circles in Paris. " With the assistance of the French, indeed, they entertained the warmest hope that the fortress must yield. — Hope did I say '— They were morally certain of it. Two days before the fatal express arrived with the news of the destruction of the floating batteries, they were boasting to us, that they were neither inflammable nor immersible The managers of one of the public places had prepared scenes, at a great ex- pence, to exhibit the storming and capture of Gibrat- tar. The ballad writers too had been indefatigable ; and all was ready at two hours warning. The news therefore of the destruction of these famous batteries was like a thunderclap ! " At first the Gazette printer had orders to pub- lish a list of 1 500 killed and wounded on that memo- rable day ; these were afterwards reduced to scarce a fifth ; but it is supposed the first number is far short of the truth ; yet I believe the populace of France would think this not a dear price for a cessation of the war. Their oppressions are greater than can be ima- gined. A little innkeeper in Burgundy assured me that he paid fifteen louis d'ores ( guineas) for the tax on his house, independent of the rent to the landlord. A peace with England is the wish of all, except a few individuals, who flourifh at their country's expence. " You may depend upon it, that their marine is in a deplorable state with respect to men and officers. They have no opinion of any of their admirals but d'Eltaing ; while Howe, Hood, and Barrington, have their warmest applause ; and I must do them the justice to add, that they behaved charmingly in their commiserations about the Royal George and Kem- penfelt. They have such an opinion of our navy officers, that a friend of mine was actually promised by a person in power, that if he could persuade any English first lieutenants to enter into the French ser- vice, they should immediately have the command of third rate ships of the line ; in short they seem to think that integrity and ability dwell in England alone, ignorance and venality in France " The real motive for the Count d'Artois' expe- dition to Gibraltar, was certainly to obtain for him the rank of Marechal of France, which cannot be given to those who have not seen actual service. His expences have been enormous ; and did they not most cordially love him for his many amiable qualities, they would lament the day that he set out.'.' * If the King had forbid their having their beards till they had taken Gibraltar, they would by this time have had the ap- pearance of so many Cordeliers [ an order of Monks who wear long beards]. - f Neither to be burnt nor funk. Extract of a letter from Cardigan, Nov. 7. " On Monday the 18th ult. a violent Storm from the ; I N. W. began to rage on this coast, and continued till the 5th inlt, threatening destruction to all the vessels in the Bay. On the 29th the Molly sloop, bound from hence to London with tin- plates was stranded in the bay, but by the activity of the people the cargo : will be saved. The same morning the Charlotte, . Nicholas, laden with coals, was lost near Fishgard, , and had it not been for the noble exertions of some .

A gentleman who discharged in the most exemplary manner, the various duties of the magistrate and of the man. On Friday the first instant, between six and seven o'clock in the evening, Mr. Edmund Stock, of this I city, was stopped in Buckland Field, near Farringdon, Berks, by a single highwayman who demanded his money, which being refufed, the highwayman snappei a pistol at him which missed fire, after which Mr, Stock drew a pistol and fired at the fellow at the dis- tance ot about three yards, and is supposed to have of I wounded either the man or his horse. The highway- man immediately made off, and Mr. Stock's servant, who was armed as well as his master, would have pursued, but was not suffered, as Mr. Stock appre- hended there might be accomplices at hand. Last week five persons were committed to the castle, x, I viz. Wm. Peare, for poaching; Wm. Cox, for leav- ing his family chargeable to1 the parish of Cirencester; Eliz.

At three in the afternoon of the 11th, the signals made by the enemy indicated the approach of the British fleet. The Latona anchored in the Bay soon after sun- set. Only four of the convoy fetched into anchorage, the remainder were driven to the back of the rock, to which place the fleet also repaired. Extract of a letter from Capt. Curtis, to Mr. Stephens, Secre- tary of the Admiralty, dated on board the Victory, at sea, Oct. 22, 1782. THE Admiral Lord Howe having conducted the remaining' ships of his convoy into the Bay of Gibraltar on the even- ing of the 18th, and landed the troops at the same time, Gen, Elliot charged me with the final communications his Excellency had to make to his Lordship, and I embarked on board the Latona frigate, for the purpose of repairing to the Victory, and left the Bay about midnight. The situation of the enemy's fleet the next morning, cut off my return to Gibraltar, and I was put on board this ship in the evening, when the fleet brought to, after it had gained the Atlantic. I have great pleasure in acquainting my Lords, that the Saint Michael, a Spanish man of war, of 72 guns, which being driven from her anchors in a gale of wind very early on the morning of the 11th, and captured under the walls of Gibraltar, as mentioned in my letter of the 16th, was got off on the 17th, and has not received the least damage. She is a very fine ship, of large dimensions ; and I am sorry that having lost her mizen- mast, and the most of her stores being 3 taken out to lighten her, it was impossible to send her home > with the fleet. The enemy threw a prodigious number of shells at the Saint Michael, while she was on shore, with the intent to destroy her; and they annoyed us excessively in the getting her off, but without any obstruction to our work, or doing us any material damage.

ROGER CURTIS. Extract of a letter from Capt. Curtis, of his Majesty's ship Brilliant, to Mr. Stephens, Secretary of the Admiralty, dated Camp at Europa, October 16. - QU the evening of the 8th inst. it being deemed proper to use all means to send home an account of the late events at this plaee, the Governor purchased a small vessel, and she was sent off for Leghorn, or any other port in Italy, With our dispatches. On the afternoon of the 10th it blew very fresh from the South West. The enemy made many signals along shore, and two frigates and a cutter arrived from the Westward. Towards the following morning the gale encreased, and guns of distress were heard from the combined fleet in the Bay. Just at the - break of day, the St. Michael, a Spanish ship mounting 72 guns, was discovered very near the garrison in a crippled statc, • ad after having two men killed, and two wounded, from the five of our batteries, she fell on shore near to the South bastion. As the day advanced, the fleet of the enemy appeared to have suffered confiderably by the gale. A ship of the line and a fri- gate were on shore near the Orange Grove ; a French ship of the line had lost her fore- mast and bowsprit. A ship of three decks and another of the line weec forced from their anchor: , and ran to the Eastward ; several others were driven far over towards the garrison, but withal to the Northward. I took possession of the St. Michael as soon as possible, landed the prisoners, an 1 carried out anchors to prevent her going further • ashore. I have no doubt of saving her : she is a very fine Extract of a letter from Captain Curtis, of his Majesty's ship Brilliant, to Mr. Stephens, Secretary of the Admiralty, dated Camp at Europa, Gibraltar, Sept. 15, 1782. BE pleased to acquaint my Lords Commissioners, that the combined fleet of France and Spain, consisting of 38 sail ^ of the line, arrived in this Bay on the 12th instant; six sail of the line were here before. At eight o'clock in the morning of the 13th, the ten bat- tering ships of the enemy lying at the head of the Bay, under the command of Admiral Moreno, began to get under sail in order to come against the garrison ; every thing was in readiness ' for their reception. At ten the admiral's ship was placed about 1000 yards from the King's bastion, and commenced • his fire. The others were very shortly after posted to the North and South of him, at small distances asunder, and be- gan their canonnade. They were all fixed to the stations allotted them in a masterly manner. Our batteries opened as the enemy came before them : the fire was: very heavy on both sides: the red- hot shot were sent with such precision from the garrison, that in the afternoon the smoke was seen to issue from the upper part of the Admiral, and one other, and men were perceived to be using fire engines and pouring water into the holes, endeavouring to extinguish the fire. Their efforts proved ineffectual, by one o'clock in the morning the two be- fore mentioned were in flames, and several others actually on fire, tho' as yet not in so great a degree. Confusion was now plainly observed among them, and the numerous rockets thrown up from each of the ships, was a clear demonstration of • their great distress : their signals were answered from the ene- roy's fleet, and they immediately began to take away the men, it being impossible to remove the ships. I thought this a fit opportunity to employ my gun- boats, and I advanced with the " whole ( twelve in number, each carrying a twenty- four or eiehteen- pounder) and drew them up so as to flank the line of the enemy's battering ships, while they were annoyed extremely by an excesive heavy and well directed fire from the garrison. - The fire from the gun- boats was kept up with great vigour and effect. The boats of the enemy durst not approach; they abandoned their ships, and the men left in them to our mercy, or to the flames. The day- light now appeared, and two fallucas, which had not yet escaped, endeavoured to get away ; but a shot from a * gun- boat, killing five men in one of them, they submitted. The scene- at this time before me was dreadful to a high de- gree, numbers of men crying from amidst the flames,^ some upon pieces of wood in the water, others appearing in the " ships where the fire had as yet made but little progress, all ex- pressing by speech and gesture the deepest distress, and all im- ploring assistance, formed a spectacle of horror not easily to be described. Every exertion was made to relieve them ; and I have inexpressible happiness in informing my Lords, that the number saved amounts to 13 officers and 344 men. One of- - ficer and 29 wounded, ( some of them dreadfully) taken from among the slain in the holds, are in our hospital, and many of them in a fair way. The blowing up of the ships around us, as the fire got to the magazines, and the firing of the cannon of others, as the metal became heated by the flames, ren- dered this a very perilous employment; but we felt it as much a duty to make every effort to relieve our enemies fromsfo shocking a fituation, as an hour before we did to assist in con- quering them. The loss of the enemy must have been very considerable. Great numbers were killed on board, and in. - boats. Several launches were sunk. In one of them were fourscore men, who were all drowned, except an officer and . twelve of them, who were floated under our wall upon the wreck. It was impossible that greater exertions could have been made to prevent it, but there is every reason to believe that a great many wounded perished in the flames. All the battering fhips were set on fire by our hot shot, except one, which we afterwards burnt. The admiral left his flag flying, and it was confumed with the ship. A large hole was beat in the bottom of my boat, my coxswain was killed, and two of the crew were wounded by pieces of timber falling on her when one of the battering ships blew up. The same cause sunk one of my gun- boats, and damaged another Two of the enemy's bomb- ketches were brought forward, and continued to throw shells into the gar- ison during the attack of the battering ships. A considerable detachment of seamen did duty as artillerists upon the batteries, and gave great satisfaction. The officers and men of the brigade of seamen under my ^ command, in whatever situation they were placed, behaved in ^ a manner highly becoming them. - I have the honour herewith to enclose a list of the battering ships. They were of different sizes, from 1400 to 600 tons burthen. Their guns, in all 212, were brass 26- pounders, and entirely new. The enemy had collected, from different ports, between two and three hundred large boats, besides a vast number belong- ing to this vicinity, to be employed in carrying troops, or any * other services connected with their operations against: this for- tress.. The loss in the brigade of seamen on the. 13th and 14th, considering the nature of the attack, has been very trifling, having only one killed, and five wounded.

LONDON, Saturday, Nov. 9. £ Extract 0f a letter from Plymouth, Nov. 6. wind has blown a storm for several JWJ ' S days past. Last night it increased with ftf' redoubled fury. The ships in the ft Sound rode it out well. Many tents ^ < at the different encampments were torn to pieces. Three centinels, who were posted upon the ramparts of the garrison, were blown off the wall, one of whom was unfortunately killed upon the spot ; the other two were much bruised." j The reports which have been so confidently circu- 1 lated of a change in Administration are as yet prema- < ture. Mr. Jenkinson was certainly at Court yester- 1 day, but he neither had a private audience with the ' King, which is the invariable custom on receiving the ; seals of so high an employment as Secretary of State, I ; nor did he kiss hands at all. His attendance was a j mere visit of ceremony. It is not true neither, that Mr. Townshend and Colonel Barre have been re- moved from their respective offices ; but though these events have not yet taken place, it is equally certain that some important revolution is at present in agita- tion. English Chron. A few days ago Lord Shelburne, in order to make way for one of his creatures, expressed his wishes, in I pretty broad terms, that the Right Hon. Mr. Towns- end would favour him with a resignation of the office I of one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, I and accept of another situation ; but Mr. Townsend, I it seems, had too much spirit to be kicked down flairs, I ; as it is called in the language of Statesmn, and posi- I ] tively refused to yield up his office to the convenience I of the Minister. English Chron. Upon the discovery of Lord Shelburne's intention I to remove Mr. Townsend, Mr. Pitt took fire, at- I ; tached to his interest by the intended union between I his brother Lord Chatham, and the daughter of Mr. I Townsend, and informed the Minister of his resolu- I tion to resign with Mr. Townsend. In consequence I of this, the Minister desisted from attempting to re- I move him from office. — Ibid. | It is the report of the day that Lord North and Mr I Jenkinson are again coming into Administration ; and it was confidently asserted yesterday, that the Duke of I Richmond had resigned. The newswriters say, that the Minister places great I confidence in the support he expects to receive from I Lord North. It is impossible at this time to form any idea of the I new arrangement about to take place in Administra- I tion. It is only conjectured that the Minister is call- I ing to his aid the most powerful, to enable him to I repel the attack he expects from Mr. Fox, and his Yesterday the Hon. William Pitt, Esq; was sworn in Chancellor of the Exchequer, before the Lord Chancellor, in the Court of Chancery.

She sailed I j from the Tagus the 24th ult. at which time they had I intelligence that several men of war had arrived at I j, Cadiz the 18th, among which were two three- deckers, I | which had been totally dismasted in the storm at Gib- I j raltar, and came in under jury masts, but whether 1 j French or Spaniards was not mentioned. I Mons. . in a three- deckcr, commanded the I van of the combined fleet. The first shot he fired I went thro' the fore- top- sail of the Goliah ; he then I made a signal that his guns reached our ships, and in- stantly the whole line hauled their wind. When the enemy bore down to engage, they seemed confident | that our fleet would endeavour to wave an action, but I they were soon convinced to the contrary, by Lord Howe forming the line to receive him. Last night their Majesties, attended by the Prince I and Princess of Mecklenburgh, were at Covent- Gar- den, to see the Castle of Andalusia, and Retaliation. The King wore a blue suit, embroidered with gold. The Queen's dress was sky blue, her cap and stoma- ger covered with a profussion of diamonds. The Prince and Princess were both in black. The entertainments given at Mistley- Hall last week ; were uncommonly splendid. The Prince of Wales set off from town at five o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, and got to Mr Rigby's by three o'clock next morn- ing. The « fiy then sat down to supper, and did | not break up till six. The next day the Prince, and most of the gentlemen employed themfelves in shoot- ; ing in the village of Thorn, where they found an un- common quantity of game. His Royal Highness con- tinued at Mistley till one o'clock on Saturday morn- ing, when he set off for London. On Thursday last Mr. Campbell, contractor for the > convicts at the hulks, delivered to the Judges of the Court of King's- Bench, in open court, an account of prisoners in his charge, when it appeared that 579 had been discharged out of custody, and that from en- quiry it could not be found above 39 of them re- ' turned to their evil courses. Lord Mansfield called the attention of the bar particularly to this circum- stance, which, he said, contradicted the general be- it lief of the public. Thursday afternoon, as the chariot of Thomas Fal- coner, Esq; of North End, was passing over Hamp- stead Heath, the driver perceived some defect in the harness and getting down to rectify it, the horses took fright, and gallopped about a quarter of a mile beyond Lord Mansfield's, when, by leaping out of the carriage, Mr. Falconer's niece had the misfor- c_ tune to break her leg, and dislocate her collar. The of chariot was broke to pieces, and one of the horses er rendered useless. - BANKRUPTS. Samuel Newton Riviere, of New Bond- Street, Middlesex, of goldfmith.
