REVOLUTION IN FRANCE. PARIS AND VERSAILLES IN ARMS ! The latest advices from Paris are dated the 7th of this month, and mention a return of confusion and alarm in that capital, of the most serious na- ture, and almost equally terrible as the riots of the memorable 13th of July last. At ten o'clock on Monday morning last, by a preconcerted scheme, the officers of the King's body guards gave an entertainment to the officers of the regiment de Flandres, and of which they in- vited several other officers who were at Versailles, among whom was Count D'Estaing, to partake. In the course of the entertainment, after the inspiration of the bottle, they presumed to pro- mulgate a new doctrine — cried, " Vive le Roi," tore out their national cockade, trampled them under their feet, and replaced them with the royal black one. They then sent for several detachments of the soldiers, in order to sound their dispositions, who readily followed the example of their officers, and swore on their knees, their allegiance in future should be to their Sovereign. This example became general amongst the sol- diers and guards— they mustered within the gates in the front of the Palace, unanimously vociferating " Vive le Roi & la Reine.'" and shewing the sub- stituted royal cockade instead of the national one. The King and Queen appeared at the balcony, to court and approve their loyalty. Several grenadiers of the guards got access to the balcony, threw themselves at the feet of their Ma- jesties, and implored their pardon for their treachery, swearing, that they had authority to say, that the people, who then appeared before them, were de- termined and ready to spill the last drop of their blood in the cause of their Sovereign, having ab- jured their oaths to the National Assembly, and re- newed their allegiance to the King. The King and Queen bade them rise, and ap- plauded their resolution. On their retreating, Versailles was in the utmost tumult. During this scene, information was conveved to Paris.— The drills beat to arms, and Monsieur le Marquis de Fayette, commander of the national troops, immediatly mustercd his forces ; but, to his astonishment, found amongst them many disaffect- ed, and not a few old friends with new faces The Marquis de la Fayette set off to Versailles, at the head of many thousands of the militia and citizens of Paris, with the view of insisting on the regiment of Flanders being sent off from thence immediately, and to offer to the Minister to sub- stitute, in lieu of this regiment ( whose conduct has given offence to the inhabitants of the capital), a body of 2000 national soldiers, who will unite themselves to the militia bourgeoisie of that city, to mount guard at the Palace, and the door of the National Assembly, and do the duty of such pa- troles as shall be necessary to hinder all insurrections. Upon the manner in which this offer will be ac- cepted, and the success of the accompanying mea- sures, the tranquillity of the capital depends, and perhaps the peace of the whole kingdom. The city of Paris was on Wednesday illuminated from one end to the other. All the citizens passed the preceding night under arms, waiting with trem- bling anxiety the success of the Marquis de la Fay- ette's expedition. The Hotel de la Ville has not only been attack- ed, but completely pillaged, of very considerable sums of money, jewels, & c. Some thousands of women are armed— fome with sticks, pitch- forks, and pikes, and others even with muskets. They have put themselves at the head of the populace, and are by far more inveterate and sanguinary than the men : Their first rendezvous was in the Thuil- leries Gardens ; and on marching out by the Pont Tourneanx, or Turning Bridge, the Swiss who was on guard there made some opposition to their passing, upon which they hanged him 0n the near- est tree, without mercy. When the banditti of females reached Versailles, his Majesty was hunting ; they met him 0n his re- turn, and presented a most formidable appearance, being most of them armed. They assured his Ma- jesty they had no hostile intentions to his person. They only wanted immediate food, and to c0m- plain to him of the Committee of Subsistence, by whose mismanagement his faithful subjects were starving. The King assured them of his good will, and that he would command an enquiry as to the foundation of their complaint. His Majesty then ordered them an immediate supply of food, at the Palace ; after which they set off on their return to Paris. On the road they met a gentleman on horseback, with a round hat on :— On questioning him who he was, he informed them he was a superior domes- tic ; but the women observing he wore long gold ear- rings, doubted his veracity, and supposing him to be an aristocrate, they dismounted him, aud immediately hanged him. After this transaction, one of their body was dis- patched to the National Assembly, with an account of their proceedings. Having obtained admittance, whilst the Assembly were deliberating, she stated to them what had passed, aud hoped they would approve of the conduct of the women ! The As- sembly did not think it prudent to irritate them farther, and accordingly dismissed her with marks of approbation. The gates of the city of Paris were shut all Tuesday, to prevent any person's escape. The places of public entertainment were shut on Mon- day evening, as well as the coffee- houses about the Palais Royal on Tuesday. The Parisians, in addition to this new revolu- tion, are likely to experience the horrors of famine, as there was not bread or corn sufficient in the city to serve them many days. The most disastrous events, similar, or even worse than those which happened from the 14th to the 22d of July last, still threaten Paris. NATIONAL Assembly. To explain the reccnt causes of this return of alarm and confusion, we shall briefly relate the pro- ceedings of the National Assembly since the 1st in- stant, which will be found highly interesting and worthy observation. We have already mentioned in former papers, M. Necker's appearance in the Assembly with the draught of his bill for imposing a contribution of one fourth on the revenue of every individual for one year towards the relief of the state. The whole of the Minister's plan had been al- ready adopted by the Assembly, and nothing seemed necessary but the form of the decree ; a debate however almost imperceptibly arose out of the mo- tion for carrying it into effect, which in the end became unusually violent. It was thought by some, that the resolutions proposed in one part of the Minister's plan had been too instantly and hastily determined, not to be again considered before they passed into a law— such as the reduction of the pension list, See.; and that in order to give no obstruction to the immediate operation of the article relating to the general con- tribution, it would be best to postpone the rest for further consideration. This was strongly opposed by M. de Mirabeau and others, who insisted, that all the articles already agreed on, concerning the new form of constitution, as well as the bill of rights, should be presented to the Monarch for his acceptance, at the same time with M. Necker's plan ; and after some further observation from other Members, M. de Mirabeau moved, " That the President of the Assembly should immediately retire, and solicit an audience of the King, to present the plan of M. Necker for the royal acceptance, as well as the several articles of the constitution already deliberated on, with the declaration of rights." M d'Espremenil opposed this motion very point- edly. He said, that presenting the article of the constitution with the decree for imposing a con- tribution of one- fourth, was submitting the latter to the condition of accepting the other parts— it WAS constraining his Majesty to accept the whole, or expose the nation to great inconvenience. Many other observations passed, which we have not now time to relate ; but M. de Mirabeau's motion was at length carried. The President then withdrew, and having had an audience of his Majesty, brought back the fol- lowing answer— " That his Majesty would make known his in- tentions as soon as possible." No answer having been received on the 3d instant, the Assembly debated on some other subjects of a less important nature. On Monday last, the 5th instant, his Majesty's answer having been received, it was read in the National Assembly, and was nearly as follows— " Gentlemen, *' Laws newly constituted can only be properly judged of, when taken in their general mass ;— in such great and important objects, the whole is join- ed by one common link. " Nevertheless, I feel it extremely natural, that in a moment when we invite the nation to come to the succour of the state, by a signal act of confi- dence and patriotism, we should assure it of its ne- cessity and propriety. Therefore, in the hope that the first articles of the constitution which you have presented to me, united with the continuation of your labours, will fulfil the expectation of my people, and secure the happiness and prosperity of my kingdom, 1 acquiesce in these articles according to your desire ; but on this positive condition, from which I will never depart, That the general result of your deliberations shall leave the entire effect of the executive power in the hands of the Monarch. " A general view of my observations shall be laid before you, by which you will be made acquainted, that in the present order of things, I can neither with efficacy protest the recovery of legal imposi- tions, the free circulation of money and provisions, nor the individual safety of my citizens. I will nevertheless fulfil the essential duties of royalty ; the welfare of my subjects, the public tranquility, and the preservation of good order among society, are dependent 0n it. It is my with, therefore, that we make it a common cause to remove those ob- stacles which may obstruct so desirable and saluta- ry an end. " It remains for me to acquaint you with frank- ness, that, if I give my acquiescence to the various articles of the constitution which you have laid be- fore me, it is not that they are, according to my ideas, a model of perfection— but that I consider it praise worthy in me not to delay paying attention to the present wishes of the Deputies of the Na- tion, and the alarming circumstances which so strongly invite us to restore the public tranquillity and confidence among the people. ' I do not now explain myself on your Declara- tion of the Rights of Man and Citizen. It contains very excellent maxims proper to guide our delibe- rations ; but principles which are liable to differ- ent applications, and even constructions, cannot be justly appreciated, nor is it necessary they should be, until the moment when their true sense is fixed by those laws to which they are to serve as a basis. ( Signed) Louis." The impression which this answer made in the Assembly, can scarcely be described. It was read three times before any member ventured to reply to it. All was Consternation and surprise. M de Virieux first spoke, and thought his Ma- jesty's declaration wise, clear, and satisfactory. He was supported in the same opinion by the whole body of the aristocracy, and the Assembly soon be- came a scene of the utmost distraction and turbu- lence. The patriots on the contrary insisted, that his Majesty's answer was extremely unsatisfactory, and not dictated by his own parental sentiments— That he had been advised to it by the secret enemies of the nation, and that it ought not to pass without remonstrance. , Messrs de Villeneuve and de Mirabeau were un- usually severe, and threw out some very extraordi- nary observations The former remarked on a late entertainment given at the palace to the militia of Versailles, which he represented as the effect of a species of conspiracy against the Assembly. On being questioned by the opposite party to bring proof of this, and commit the charge to wri- ting, M. de Villeneuve offered to confirm his testi- mony. He was supported by M. de Mirabeau, who added, that the law having only declared the person of the King inviolable, every other indivi- dual was subject to the law, and liable to be at- tached.— After having endeavoured to prove that his Majesty's answer was insufficient, he moved the following resolution, which was agreed to : " The Assembly orders its President to wait on the King a second time, accompanied by a deputa- tion of twelve members, to beseech his Majesty to give a further explanation to his answer of the 4th instant, which shall give the people fully to under- stand the extent of his conditional acceptation, founded on the circumstances of the times;— in short, that his Majesty will give a second answer which leaves no doubt of his acceptation."

Paris, Oct. 7. It being customary for the Gardes du Corps at Versailles to give an entertainment to any new re- giment that arrives there, the regiment de Flandres was on Thursday last sumptuously entertained with a dinner by that Corps in the Palace. After dinner their Most Christian Majesties judged proper to ho- nour the company with their presence, and conde- scended to shew their satisfaction at the general joy which prevailed among the guests. On their ap- pearance the music instantly played the favourite song of O Richard— O mon Roi, and the company joining in chorus, seemed to unite all ideas in one unanimous sentiment of loyalty and love for the King, and nothing was heard for some time but repeated shouts of Vive le Roi, within and without the Palace. In the height of their zeal they pro- ceeded to tear the national cockades from their hats, and trampled them under their feet. The Gardes du Corps supplied themselves with black cockades, in the room of those they had treated with such distain. The news of these proceedings soon reached Paris, where a general ill humour vi- sibly gained ground. On Saturday there were great disturbances in the Palais Royal, and it became unsafe for any one to appear with black cockades, as several foreigners experienced, from whose hats they were torn with much violence and abusive language. On Sunday the confusion increased, and a vast concourse of people tumultuously assembled at the town house, under the pretence of demanding bread, and enquiring into the real causes of the ex- treme scarcity of it at this season of the year. On Monday morning a number of women, to the amount of upwards of five thousand, armed with different weapons, marched in regular order to Versailles, followed by the numerous inhabitants of the Fauxbourgs, St Antoine, and St Marceau, with several detachments of the city militia ; and in the evening the Marquis de la Fayette, at the head of 20,000 of that corps, likewise marched to Ver- sailles. On Tuesday morning an account was received of some blood having been spilt. The Gardes du Corps fired on the Parisians, and five or six per- sons, chifly women, were killed. The regiment de Flandres was also drawn out to oppose this torrent; but the word to fire was no sooner given, than they all to a man clubbed their arms, and, with a shout of Vive la Nation, went over to the Parisians.— Some troops of dragoons that are quartered at Ver sailles also laid down their arms, and the Swiss de- tachments remained motionless, having received no orders from their officers to fire. The Gardes du Corps being thus abandoned, and overpowered by numbers, fled precipitately into the gardens and woods, where they were pursued, many of them killed and taken prisoners. Some of the heads of those who were killed were carried to Paris, and paraded through the streets on spikes. The same morning a report came, that the King, Queen, and Royal Family, were on their way to Paris. Upon this the people began to assemble from all parts of the town ; and above 50,000 of the militia pro- ceeded to line the streets and the road to Versailles. Their Majesties and the Royal Family accordingly arrived between seven and eight o'clock in the evening, after having been six hours on the road. The carriages all proceeded to the town house.— The concourse of people that attended is not to be described, and the shouts of Vive la Nation filled the air- From the town house they were conduc- ed to the Palace of the Thuilleries, though totally unprepared for their reception, where they passed the night. St Petersburgh, Sept. 10.

LONDON, OCTOBER 11. CIVIL WAR IN FRANCE. An express arrived yesterday morning, at five o'clock, from Paris, which brings word that a re- gular attack had been made between the national troops and the King's troops, in which the former had 800 killed. Count D'Estaing is said to have been beheaded, and four of his party, for assisting the King in endeavouring to make his escape. Duke de Guiche, Duke de Chatelet, and Count Lusignan are also said to have been seized on and put to death. A body of women fought like furies, and dragged forth and murdered three of the Guarde dc Corps. Several field pieces were fired at the Palace, and the left wing was set on fire, and nearly destroyed, when the express came away. Though 800 of the national troops fell in the contest, the slaughter was greater oa the side of \ 1 » til be poi twe whi tha' as : rcci birt per tho eve be aPf bee cd i pea Co all to ma 1 hav on up mil ftrc to Ch tir< a C ate lia< ed, the King's party'; the whole Flemish regiment is said to have been cut in pieces. The King is in the Louvre at Paris. The Queen has eacaped for the present— search is making after her. Other accounts say, that the Count de St Priest was to be put to death, but that that had not ta- ken place when the express came away. One account denies the engagement betwixt the national troops and the Flanders regiment.— It is to be observed, that very much uncertainty yet prevails as to the exact facts; and we give these reports, as well as that above, without pretending to vouch for their authenticity. Wednesday at noon, being the Court day, their Majesties received all the Foreign Ministers in the Palace. The King looked uncommonly dejected ; the Queen was in tears the whole time, and only talked a few words to the Imperial Ambassador. The sight was uncommonly gloomy and affecting, and the Court broke up after a short time. In the evening, the districts of Paris passed a re- solution, that the regiment of the King's Body Guard should be immediately broken, and never more revived. That in future his Majesty should be guarded by citizens, instead of soldiers. During these proceedings at Paris, the National Assembly at Versailles could not be supposed able to transact much business. They, however, came to two resolutions on Wednesday, which it was supposed would be the last day of their sitting there. The purport of these resolutions were : That the National Assembly should adjourn to Paris ; and That its meeting should never be separate from the King's place of residence. One paper adds, That the mob had been again insurgent— that they had attempted to force the Queen's apartment at the Thuilleries. That their avowed object was to strangle her. That the attempt to force the apartment failing, they had tried to set fire to it. These are all the reports which have yet been circulated with any degree of confidence. The Duke of Orleans, apprised of the inten- tions of the aristocratic party to make another struggle for the renewal of the old system, towards the beginning of October, sent off his children the 26th of last month to Villedieu, a small country seat of his near Dieppe ; opposite to which, in a little creek of the sea, a vessel has been for some time ly- ing at anchor, provided with every necessary, and ready to put to sea at a moment's warning for Eng- land. The King's removal to Paris will render this precaution no longer necessary. The King has completely developed the plot that was engendering to overthrow the Assembly, and the names of the conspirators are disclosed. The National Assembly were called upon to pro- ceed to the confiscation of the estates of the fugi- tive Noblesse. Advices are received by the Duke of Dorset's courier of yesterday, that it was very strongly re- ported and believed at Paris, that the King of Sar- dinia was marching 15,000 men, in three divisions, towards the frontiers of France, which no doubt are to be joined by more from other quarters. We only dread, that whenever this news may be con- firmed, and foreign troops enter France, the very persons they are meant to protect will fall victims to their zeal. It is indeed to be feared, that the very first moment of such an alarm, the Queen of France would suffer by the axe ! The Marquis de la Fayette having declined marching to Versailles, at the desire of the citizens, had a halter sent to him, with a brief message, im- porting that he must take his choice between the two— a march to Versailles or a halter; upon which he set off, but went as slowly as possible, that the King and Queen might be apprised of his approach. It is absolutely said that the Queen of France had a halter put round her neck, and was led through the Place de Greve, not merely to inspire her with terror, but with a serious determination of making her a public sacrifice to the fury of the mob, who applied to the National Assembly to know whether it approved of her being hanged, as an atonement for the insult which the nation had received during the festivittes at Versailles, on the birth- day of the Dauphin. The Queen of France appeared during the above perilous condition in a state of singular composure, though she was kept some hours in suspence, and every moment in apprehension that the mob would be authorised to hang her upon the spot. This apparent tranquillity, however, is supposed to have been the effect of torpid insensibility, that suspend- ed all her faculties in apprehension and horror. Extract of a letter from Petersburgh, Sept. 9. We have it now from the best authority that peace as well with the Turks and the two Imperial Courts, Sweden and Russia, are now on the tapis; all parties having great reason to wish for an end to the present disputes; and on the side of Ger- many, it is become absolutely necessary." By accounts received in town late last night, we have good authority for asserting, that at Brussels on Monday last all the principal people were taking up arms, and preparing to join the army of Fle- mish militia at Bois le Duc. The Emperor's troops at Brussels are only 6,300 strong, and some hundreds of those had threatned to lay down their arms. The plan is, to declare the Due d'Aremberg Chief Magistrate, and to invest him with the en- tire government of the Low Countries, assisted by a Council, to be nominated by the people. The cockade was adopted by all— and immedi- ate execution followed a refusal. Lord Bristol and a gentleman who arrived in town yesterday, confirm this account. This morning Jacob Canter, alias Richter, who had been condemned for forgery, and often respit- ed, was executed before the debtors door at New- gate. AGRiculture. This rainy weather has been extremely favour- able to the wheat which is already sown. The lightest lands are always first sown, and therefore want most rain. The turnips, as last year, begin to die in the leaf, especially the forward ones. They will certainly not stand the winter well if the weather should last severe. The clover which is left for feed promises much ; the crops are full, and it has a fine purple look. It is cut in many places, but carried as yet in very few. The hay in general about London is bad, and a good rick is as scarce as an old one. In many parts of Hertfordshire whole stacks of 40 or 50 loads are quite spoiled, so that tolerable hay may be expected to sell well. The barley never was better in quality, nor can a better crop be expected in any year. The same thing may be said of oats, but the price of neither of these grains will be so cheap as was imagined, for the hay and pease failing in a degree, more of the former will be consumed by the horses, and much of the latter ground down for feeding hogs. The wheat, that important article with all man- kind, was not so abundant as to encourage the hun- gry to expect bread very cheap ; although the straw was promising, the ears were not well set, one head containing but 16 or 18 grains, when in some sea- sons it will produce 24 and more. The well coming up of a new feed, however, will produce its good effect; for in many places in champain fields and plains, the plant is already up thick, and the fold upon it. The potatoes are various in quality. Many of them, particularly the red, are for the most part hollow in the middle, and watery. The white Shetland are the best. EDINBURGH. Yesterday the Right Hon. Henry Dundas wait- ed on the Lord Provost and Magistrates in Coun- cil, and returned them his warmest acknowledge- ments for the honour they had conferred on him, in approving his intentions of offering himself to represent his native city.— His being chosen an as- sessor for it, in his early years, was his first ap- pearance in public life.— He considered their present favour as a testimony not only of their approbation of his past political conduct ( the particulars of which he recapitulated), but as a mark of confidence in his future exertions, which he assured them should ever be made for the welfare and benefit of the community at large, and of every individual who composed it. The Earl of Stair died at Culhorn on Tuesday the 13th current. Died here, on the nth instant, Captain John Inglis, sen. of the Royal Navy. Died, at Mounie, Aberdeenshire, the 4th in- stant, Mr Alexander Seton, in the 82d year of his age. _ Died, at Camelon House, the 7th current, Mrs Chalmers, relict of the deceased Major John Chal- mers. The late Earl of Abercorn, whose death was an- nounced in our last, was born in 1712, and suc- ceeded his father in 1744, was elected in 1761 one of the Sixteen to represent the Scots Peerage in Parliament, and has been re- elected ever since, un- til his Majesty, in 1786, created him a British Peer, by the title of Viscount Hamilton. His Lordship was of no party ; but from principle supported Ad ministration, though he never asked a favour of any Minister. His ample fortune made him live inde- pendent, and in a stile truly princely. The regu- larity in which he conducted his affairs was exem- plary ; and all under him lived happy, and grew grey in his service. His generosity to his relations was unbounded : he gave his nephew ( now Earl of Abercorn) 5000I. a- year; and in one morning presented his nieces with 50,000!. His Lordship had five brothers ; two died young. John, father of the present Lord, Captain of the Lancaster man of war, was unfortunately drown- ed in 1755 coming ashore in his boat at Ports- mouth : William was Lieutenant on board the Vic- tory of 110 guns, when lost in 1744, with her whole crew, amongst whom were many of the first rank in the kingdom : George, a respectable cler- gyman, died in 1787 Canon of Windsor, See, lea- ving nine daughters. The present is the ninth Earl of Abercorn, and the only surviving male heir of the above brothers. He married in 1779 Catharine, daughter of Sir James Copley, and has several children. He re- presented the borough of St Germain's in this pre- sent Parliament. At the opening of the first ses- sion he seconded the motion for the address to his Majesty, and has uniformly supported Administra- tion. Yesterday the following gentlemen were appoint- ed Resident Bailies of Canongate : Mess. George Rae, Robert Murray, and Mr Milne Treasurer. Mr Calder Resident Bailie of Portsburgh, [ and Mr Home Resident Bailie of Pottercow. The Resident Bailies of Leith are not yet elected. DUMfRIES RACES. Tuesday last, a purse of 50 guineas was won by the Duke of Hamilton's bay filly. Mr Thomson's bay colt, distant the first heat. , WEDNESDAY, a purse of 50 guineas. Mr Thomson's Poor Cottager, - 11 Duke of Hamilton's bay filly, - - 2 2 THURSDAY, a purse of 50 guineas. Duke of Hamilton's Goldfinder, - 11 Mr Joseph Thomson of Ponsonby's Tumult, ' 2 2 On the same day there were two hack races for five gui- neas each, which afforded excellent sport; the last race was very hard run, and occasioned three heats. The above races this season were not fully equal to expec- tation ; but we hear there is already a new subscription for ra- ces to be at Dumfries next harvest, upon a more liberal plan, which, independent of the Caledonian Hunt, will, it is hoped afford better entertainment. Owing to the badness of the weather, the Cale- donian Hunt have had but little amusement since their meeting. The hounds were out at Dalkeith on Monday and were expected to have been out this morning at Newbottle, but the heavy rains will probably prevent them. We do not hear for certain whether there is to be any ball; it is gene- rally thought there will be none. Extract of a letter from Aberdeen, Oct. 12. " Last week the town has been uncommonly gay, and the concourse of Nobility and gentry from all parts of the country, far exceeded every thing ever known here. The Northern Shooting Club held their October meeting, and devoted the week to social amusement and agreeable intercourse. On Monday they gave a ball, in the Mason Hall, to the most brilliant company that ever assembled in Aberdeen. There were present the Duke and Duchess of Gordon, Marquis of Huntly, Lady Magdalene and Sir Robert Sinclair, Lady Char- lotte and Colonel Lenox, the Countess of Kintore, Lord Inverury, Lady Mary Keith, Lady Catha- rine Keith, Lord and Lady Saltoun, Lord Banff, Lady Susan Gordon, Lord and Lady Haddo, Lord Strathaven— But as it would far exceed our limits to mention all the Ladies and Gentlemen who were present on this occasion, we must content ourselves with saying, that the Hall that night exhibited an assemblage of beauty, youth, and elegance. Of the illustrious company who graced this meeting, the following were paired in the dances: The Duchess of Gordon Lady Charlotte Lenox Lady Magdalene Sinclair Lady Susan Gordon Lady Saltoun Lady Mary Keith Lady Catharine Keith Lady Haddo Miss Dalrymple Mrs Hay Montblairy Miss Fraser, Fraserfield Lord Haddo Lord Strathaven Hon. Captain Forbes Sir Robert Sinclair Mr Skene of Skene Sir William Forbes Mr Leith of Overhall Marquis of Huntly Lord Inverury Lord Banff Lord Saltoun " The Ladies dresses were in general elegant — Many of their sashes had pretty devices in ho- nour of the Shooting Club— and on the beautiful Lady Saltoun's cap were the letters N. S. C. neatly done in pearl. " After the ball, the company supped in the Town House. " On the other days of the week the company dined together, alternately at Wilkie's and Mas- son's, and spent the evenings with infinite cheerful- ness and good humour." Mr Charles Ross younger of Balnagown was unanimously chosen Provost of the borough of Tain, on the 29th of September last. His Grace the Duke of Buccleugh has present- ed the Rev. Mr William Scott, minister of the pa- rish of Gretna, in the presbytery of Anan, to the church and parish of Dalkeith, in room of the Rev. Dr Greive, translated to this city. ' Last week, the University and King's College of Aberdeen, conferred the degree of Doctor of Medicine on Mr James Mackie, Surgeon in the island of St Vincent's in the West Indies. The celebrated Miss Fontenelle, from the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, is engaged for eight nights, and will make her first appearance in this city on Saturday next, in the Highland Reel. On tuesday last the Justices of Peace of this county decided several complaints, exhibited by the Solicitor of Stamp Duties, against persons for sel- ling playing cards, which were not stamped in terms of law. The sentence in each of these com- plaints was in the following terms: " Find that the defender has incurred the statutory penalties claimed from him ; but, in respect he has not on- ly engaged to observe the law in future, but has ex- hibited on oath all the counterfeit second- hand waste cards, and cards made for exportation in his possession, and has rendered the same unfit for play at the sight of the complainer, modify and restrict said penalties to 2s. 10s. Sterling. Campbeltoun, September 23. " The 22d current, being the anniversary of the King's coronation, as well as the Marquis of Lorne's birth- day, when his Lordship came of age, the same was observed here with every demonstration of unfeigned loyalty and joy. At noon, the town batteries fired a salute, which was answered by another, of 21 guns, from the Savage sloop of war, then in the harbour. These were again re- echoed in rapid succession by the surrounding hills, and had an effect so majestically grand, as to be beyond the reach of description— The gentlemen of the town and neighbourhood convened at the principal ta- vern, to commemorate events interesting to the country at large, and to every class of its inhabi- tants. " After dinner, the health of the day, and many loyal and constitutional toasts went round, and were announced abroad by discharges of musquetry, from the military party stationed at this place ; at the same time, strong. beer was distributed to the po- pulace, and the evening concluded with a crouded and genteel ball. And what, from lovalty to the King, and attachment to the noble family of Ar- gyll, a more festive celebration cannot be conceived. 1 must not omit mentioning, that upon this occasion, three fine new vessels were launched, one of which was called the George, the other the Marquis of Lorne." .< MAGISTRATES Of OLD ABERdEeN.

Dumfries, Oct. 1.1789. THOMAS GOLDIE, Clerk. To the Trustees on the Turnpike Roads, Commissioners of Supply, and Heritors of the county of Stirling. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, THAT, at last Meeting of the said Trustees, HENRY JAFFRAY, Esq. Provost of Stirling, made the following MOTION, which falls to be taken under con- sideration at the next meeting, appointed to be held at Stir- ling on Tuesday the 27th day of October curt, along with a motion made by another Trustee for causing MANURE to pay TOLL. Provost Jaffray's motion is as follows —" I move, That " now, or at a meeting to be called for the purpose, the " Turnpike Funds be again considered; and that the clauses " in the draught of the new bill, imposing a Toll upon Coals, " and raising the Tolls, be expunged; because, by a state- " ment of the funds and expenditure I now produce and lodge " with tire Clerk, which will be supported by evidence, it is " clear, that the funds are adequate to keep the present Turn- " pike Roads in fufficient repair, and pay off the debt in a " given time;— and I offer to find persons who will keep " these Roads in repair, and pay off the debt, on getting an " assignation to the Tolls, as at present, for the twenty five " years proposed as the endurance of the aCt to be applied for. ( Signed) HENRY JAffRAY." " Stirling 2d October 1789." By this offer, every person must he convinced, that it is by no means necessary either to heighten the present Tolls, or to tax Coal and Manure, in the bill which is proposed to be brought into Parliament. It is therefore expected that all concerned in the event of these motions will bestow that at- tention upon them which their magnitude and importance deserve, and that the Members of the Meeting will attend at their discussion, in order to prevent unnecessary burdens from being laid upon the inhabitants, and obstructions thrown in the way of the present rapid improvements in a- griculture throughout the county.

It has been an invariable rule with the house of Hornsby and Co. to offer the very best security to their worthy friends and the public, on whose patronage and support. they rely. They likewise humbly assure the public, that it shall be their constant study to give every testimony of regard for the in- numerable favours received during a period of twenty- three lotteries, and they earnestly solicit their orders on the present occasion. , The large number of capital prizes sold, shared, and regis- tered, by Hornsby and Co. are too numerous to mention in this publication; they therefore inform the public, for the more early intelligence of the holders of capital prizes, bought at their office, they shall follow their old invariable rule, by advertising every capital prize on the day it is drawn, and the whole at the conclusion of the drawing. CorreCt Numerical and Register Books are kept, and Tick ets and Shares registered at Sixpence per number. All shares sold at this office will be stamped agreeable to act of Parliament.
