TUESDAY, NOVEMBER T. Tn the pending negotiation with France, we have undoubt- ed'authority for faying, that Mr Crawftird has been inftruc* ttd to. offer the admiffion to our markets of their' cambrics, in « ".'., d: tis'm to the, ir wines but. they Ilrtiggle ( till for more. They fay, the treaty ; would iiot. be reciprocal on thefe con- ditions. They apprehend, that their wine would never be- come fuffitientfy general in England, as it is not fuitable to our climate. As to cambrics they know that our own ma- nufacture of the article is extinguilhed— and that their fa* fcric gets into the country by contraband means, which is more beneficial to them than a fair trade. They demand the adiniffioh" of'th'eir brandy, which, from, its',' llrength, is fuit- a& lt to our palates, and. . alfo. of their fa( hion's, gloves, fans, Sic. This we have refufed, antl here the negotiation reds. General Sir Auguftus Elliot, K. B. is coining home im- mediately from Gibraltar, and Lieutenant Gen. Rainsford. about to embark, in order to take the command of ihat fortrefs as Lieutenant Governor thereof. • .. Lieutenant General Sir Robert Boyd has obtained his Ma- jelly's periflifiion to wear the vi& orious word GIBRALTAR on the colours of his regimear, as'an honourable diftindlion for the important, fervices of that gallant officer and jiis corpsdu- ring the memorable liege of that important fortrfifl. It is certain that a fclieme is now determined upon to dif- pofe of the Waft'e Crown Lands by way of lottery, but the plan is not yet ripe for publication. It will be, the moll ca- pital lottery . ever known. There will be no blanks) but a fmall allotment of land, of about twenty acres, will fall to the ( hare of every adventurer, and will be tax- free for the firft twenty- years'; after which they are to be fairly affeffed to their value ; and it is thought that Government will then be. enabled to make a general alfeffment throughout, the king-, dom, without burthen to any liild- hohler. It will'require time to digclt the fcheme properly, and to fix a proper price • for the tickets, which mull depend on the, general ellimate of the value of the lands to be difpofed of.

On Friday morning, - Mr Mackay, of Piccadilly, was fent for by a. woman, who .. owed . him a ftim of money, to St y, Newingtonno. fooner had he . entered the houfe than a Frenchman came to, him, armed with a pair of piflols, and demanded of him a. d. raft on Meff. Drummond, and Co.- for 30 © 1 and fwore if lie did not comply. he was. a dead man. He wrote the draft, after which they tied his hands and feet, and lett him, while they went and received the fame in bank- notes and cadi. Further fadts refpeiSitig the robbery of Mr James Mackay, uphollterer In Piccadilly.: Mr Mackay, is truftee to the will of a gentleman. deceafed^ | tid has conft'antly paid the: wife of one de Chameron an annuity , of thirty guineas per annum, under the will to wliicbjK-. is t^ uftee. • The. ivtfe of this man has been in the habit of conftantly. making applications to Mr Mac'kay to affift her with money in advance- on account of her annuity, always dating her poverty and diftrefs as. the the plea. She is at tin's inftant in advance ; and what was unfortunate for Mr Mackay, the pretence of decoying him from his houfe on Friday morning lad was, that ( he had cal- led on him with the- ' information of its being now in her power to repay the money Mr Mackay had been good e- nough to advance, and that if he would then accompany her to her. houfe ( he would repay it. Mr Mackay unfortunately immediately left his., own lioufe, about nine in the morning, with her, and thev were both let in by de Chameron. He was defired to walk up flairs into the dining room, when de Chameron, after a few minutes eonverfation, produced a large knife and a pair of piftols', with which he menaced him- with irritant death if he offered. to cry out or alarm the neighbours, or if he did .. not lower his voice, he would inftantly difpatch him. He thendemanded his immediately writing an order on his bankers ( Meff...' p. rumrnond$} for three hundred guineas, ahd" was., very preffing that it fhoiild be. written in his ufual and cuftomary manner of drawing drafts; for, if the money was not produced, I nil ant death Ihould be the confequence of a refufal. _ The draft , was" written by Mr ' Mackay, and Mrs de ClYameron was dlfpatched with it. On her return the villain produced the bank notes to Mr Mackay, and told him there was the money. He then infilted on his drawing ano- ther draft on Mr Wdlpolefhe banker, where the. money was kept for the payment of Mrs de Cliameron's innuity. This Mr Mackay refufedy dating, that he would fuffer death ra- ther than do it; that if he was fuffered to have his choice, he, for the fak'e of lit's wife and family, -( hould'prefer life ; but that at all events be was determined not to draw another draft. Finding, he- was- fixed in his determination, the villain ceafed. impoitumtig him. He then bored holes In the wain- fcot of the roomy and'paffed ropes through them ; afterwards he compelled Mr Mac^ yt. to,, fi. t dowu. pn, the ffoor, to . which he bound himr havio^ fi^ lijtied Ijis hands behind him. Pre- vious to his leaving Mr'. Maeitay, he informed him, that in the corner cupboard, was placed a bartel of gunpowder, and in order to prevent hi? endeavouring to purfue him in his flight, told him that he had placed ropes to each of the win- dows, which had a commnnic'atioii with a loaded and cocked piftol pointing into the powJeiy arid that the inftant either of the windows were touched Or opened, the powder would go off and blow the houfe up. They afterwards left him ; and it was four o'clock in the afternoon before he could make any per'on heltr, the houfe being empty, and only taken for the above purpofe; by the help of a ladder fome people got into the window, and releafed him. When the peifoils got into the houfe at Walworth to re- leafe Mr Mackay, they found h, im tied by the hands and legs with ropes put through the wainfcot, and one hand tied to a rope fixed to. the window, which, upon being haftily puflied up, would have pulled the trigger of a piltol, the muzzle of which was inferted in £ fmall barrel of gun powder. Mr Mackay, upoq the perfoaa ifitting up to the window to re- leafe him, called out'to! them fibt to open the windowiiaftily, upoo . which they opened tlie window gently, and cut the rope, and thereby avoided the danger, There was no fur- niture whatever in the houfe; . the only things found were fome wood, which was put under the Hair- cafe', a'tlndfr box and matches, pen, ink, and paper, and a fcrew fixed iiito the ciding- beam, to which a rope was fufpetided. Mr Mackay has" fince received two incendiary letters, threatening certain death in cafe of any fearch being made after the artful vidian Who " robbed him. Should the fellow think proper to remain iq England, there is little doubt of his being taken, as his perfbn is very remarkable. It is fup- pofed that the Lady is the indentical one who wasadvertlfed fonn- time fince, as having committed feveral forgeries to a confidtiable amount. ..•• » '• On Sunday morning a duel was fought between a ftudent at law fiom Ireland, and i Scotch Phyfician.

" Monday morning about three o'clock, the people in-- habiting the houfes on the banks of the Molendiuar - Burnj which runs through this, city, « .- ere greatly alatmed, by the fudden and great rife of the Water in- that brook. The north, bank of the Monkland Caijal, at Bluchairn, about a mile eaft fromthe Ba( ot\> butft, and poured forth a g- reatitorrent of',- water Into the Burn, that carried everything before! it. The mill- dam at the High Church was levelled with the bottom of the brook. The water was from two- to three feet deep in the peoples houfes at the foot of the Havannah ( Ireet an< J the New Vennal, and approaching their beds, which awaken** ed them. The cries of thofe in danger routed the - people who were In fafety ; but how to give them relief t- hey knewr< not. A dark morning, the water continuing to rife,, and coming from a place that did not occur to them, they were ftupified, and expedled nothing elfe than the deftruflion of many of their neighbours. Happily, at that time, part of the College Garden wall, at the foot of the New Vennal, burft down, and gave fome relief to the, people, as the- waters had a greater fpread than going through the narrow bridge at the Vennal foot. But what gave relief to- them,- proved • almoft death to the people in the Spoutmouth. The arches « of the various bridges there, were too narrow for fuch a body, of water, and the channel of the bur. n being confined, by . the houfes on each fide, in paffing through the GfaUowgaxe, < he bridges rather became darns than paffages for it, and in many houfes . it was , fix. feet deep.-' The confufion attending fo a-- larming .. a fituation was beyond defcription. Floors were cut to lift the people from the ground ( lories to prevent their being drowned.; Mothers, with their hel'plefs infants, wad- ing out of their houfes in the dark, and uncertain where they were going. Others, willing to give affiltance, knew not how to approach with fafely to themfelves \ while fome, more intrepid, dallied into the flood, and brought the old. and in- firm to places of fafety. The water ruflied out of the clofes on the north fide of the Gallowgate, and ran over the top of the fide walls of the bridge in . that ftreety, when it was at. the higheft ; fo that many houfes were under water that ufed not to be fubje, cted to that inconvenicnce before, in the higheft: floods. By feven o'clock the water from the Canal w » moftly run out; but the river Clyde began to- fwell from the heavy rain that fell on Sunday, night. By. eleven o'clock fore- noon, moll part of the- Bridgegate was under water by the * river rifing fo rapidly, but it fell in the afternoon. Notwith- .

Sterling, including therein the price of 20 bolls malt an4 54 bolls oat- meal, at 16s. per boll. There is a large nianfion- houfe with fuitable offices, alfo a large gsr- den and orchard., and a pigeon houfe, 011 the premifes, and a talmoiv- fifhing at Fallinpow, none of which are included in the rent- roll. T here is alfo a great number of fine full- grown timber trees, coulilling of oak, alh, beech, ejm, & c. of coufiderablc value, with feveral young planta* tions of various kinds of wood, very thriving. The lands arc generally fnclofed and'fubdivided, partly with ftone dykes and partly with thriving hedges. From their fituation in a popu- lous country, where extenfive manufactures are carried on, and where coal and all the articles of living are cheap, and from their vicinity ttj lime and good roads, they are capalvle of great improvement and increafa of rent. Some farms are now open, which will rife; and when the other leafes which - are current expire a few years hence, a conlidotable advance may be depended rit^ OVCT the whole eftate, and great advantage may he derived from fetiing, and from tretSling mills on the - water uf Bannockburn. There is a valuable field of marie upon the eftate, to which a level is carried up; alfo two yearly fairs and a weekly market. The coal of Bannockhurn is extenfive, confiding of diffetent featn* level- free, and is Wcll. known to be of the beft quality, and of great va- lue. It has for years paft yielded a neat profit, after defraying oncaft and all expences, of about Ijool. per annurr , as wil) appear from the coal books-; and it may be wrought to a much greater extent, if th « proprietor inclines; for befides the demand from the town of Stirling and the country around, there is a harbour and fold and other conveni- y enciesat Fallinpow, on the f, ith of Forth, belonging to the ellate, where a fea fale hiay be carried on to great advantage, A purchafe in itfelf more complete, of better and more convenint fi- . tuation for intercourfe with Edinburgh, Glafgow, Stirling, and the frith rif Forth, '& c. and capable of higher improvement, rarely occurs in the ' market.
