321 LLOYD'S EVENING- POST. VOL. LXXI.] From MONDAY, OCTOBER 1, to WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1792. [ NUMB. 5502. TUESDAY, Oct. 2. AFFAIRS of FRANCE. NATIONAL CONVENTION. Wednesday, Sept. 26.— Evening. thE following report on the state of the armies was presented from the Minister at War. Sept. 15. " No courier arrived yesterday from the ar- mies ; but a letter writ- ten from Chalons by the citizen Santerre, brother in the Commandant of the National Guard of Paris announces,, that tranquillity were restored in the _ the enemy so near them ; which {. . same time the patriotism, courage and disposition of the troops Lieutenant- General Sparre has acquired their confidence, and deserves it, The communication between and our armies was still interrupted^ but I hope that it will not be so long. ( signed, " SErVAn," M. le Brun, Minister for Foreign Affairs presented to the Convention the following gene- ral view of the state of Europe, as it respects the French Republic: " Citizen President in conformity to the decree which enjoin' the members of the Exe- cutive Council to give an account to the " Poland, a prey to intestine divisions, can undertake nothing abroad. " Denmark— its interests require that it should observe the strictest neutrality. " The Court of Vienna has at length pre- vailed upon the German Empire to declare war against France- We may expect that the Diet of Ratisbon will soon formally notify to us this resolution. " The union of the Courts of Berlin and Vienna has been blamed by all Powers. The war which they carry on against us cannot fail of being prejudicial to themselves. " A secret fermentation, which increases every day, prevails at Berlin. Frederick has demanded a reinforcement of 30,000 men. They cannot be sentr to him without incurring the danger of an insurrection. He can hope for no further assistance in money ; and the treasures accumulated by Frederick the Great are ex- hausted. To judge well of the conduct of Prussia, we ought perhaps not to separate it from its ancient allies, who are more natural and more versed in the art of politics than those with which it is now openly connected. What appears most extraordinary in its present politics, may be explained by the secret influence of the Cabinets of St. James's and the Hague: but, Gentlemen, it might be imprudent to hazard conjectures on so delicate a subject yet it is of some import- ance that a watchful eye should be kept over the conduct of England and Holland. These two Powers Have evidently followed the same system and the same plan of conduct : both of them' National Convention of the Situation of the different parts of the french Republic', I come to give an account of that department which has been entrusted to me—: come, Gentlemen, to reveal to you the mysteries of the present diplomatic system, for on these must all our political Calculations be founded at present— on the one part,' the hatred of all Governments to our principles— and on the other, the secret disposition of the people to adopt them. " That Woman of the North, who for twenty years has disturbed the peace of Europe, still threatens us ;— she still announces the ar- rival of her troops, and yet she still detains them through a dread of seeing herself oppressed by her neighbours. " We are told that 30,000 Russians are coming to join those armies which are now fighting against our Liberty;-— those 30,000 men have not yet passed the frontiers- of Poland.' We have been told of ships in the White Sea ;— these ships have returned to the port of Cron- stadt, because they were neither provided with provisions nor ammunition,. A fleet was like- wise said to be coming from the Black Sea;— but this fleet, so long announced,: has not yet ap- peared. Besides, to send a fleet through the Straits of Constantinople, wouid be violating every kind of treaty with the Ottoman Porte, which is not much disposed to grant favours to the Heroine of the North. have taken ad referendum the formal proposal, made to them by the Courts of Vienna and Berlin, of entering into their league : both of them have recalled their Ambassadors they had at Paris: both of them have renewed, at the fame time, their assurances of observing the strictest neutrality, making an exception, how- ever, in regard to the safety of the person of the ci- devant King: both have expressed their desire of living in good harmony with us and both have solemnly promised to respect our independence, and not to mix in the internal affairs of the government of France.. " It would be unpardonable temerity, how- ever, to be in perfect security respecting the real intentions of these two Powers; for it is very evident, that if the people in any country are disposed to, favour out Revolution, the Government there will conceive a hatred against it. If the interest of national commerce gives us reason to hope that they will remain faithful to their protections of neutrality, we have perhaps much reason to dread the particular views of those who govern them. " Holland indeed is not arming; but it gives our enemies exclusively, in transports and loans, and by selling them arms and ammunition, every assistance in its power, England this year fitted out only a very small squadron, and this squadron has already returned into port; but it does not appear that the ships are going to be laid up, though the season of evolutions is now over. No movements have been remarked for a month [ Price Fourpence past in the ports of Great- Britain ; but it is well known that its navy is always on such a respect- able footing, that it can, at any time, soon fit for sea a very formidable squadron. " There is a secret intelligence between the Cabinet of St. James and, that of the Hague These two Courts seem to follow the same system; and they have declared that they mean to observe a strict neutrality. All their pro- testations, however, ought not to inspire us with confidence. Holland has not taken up arms against us, but it furnishes certain supplies to our enemies; and though England has only a very small. fleet in its ports, it has such re- sources as may enable it to equip a very formi- dable one in a moment. " Spain has only 25,000 men ready to march against us. We need not doubt that this Court will take a very active part in the war against the French Republic. A Bourbon is upon the throne of Spain, and he wishes to avenge the Bourbons. " The petty Princes of Italy always follow that plan which is dictated to them by the strongest party." M. Le Brun terminated the Report by assuring the Convention, " That he would be answer- able for the truth of every thing he had ad- vanced.' The Report was applauded, and ordered to printed. Thursday, Sept. 27 A Deputation from the Commons of Paris were admitted to the bar, , " They denounced M. Manuel, Procureur of the Commons for having delivered to an agent of the King of Prussia, some Decrees of the Commons, and extracts from the Proces verbal of their Sit- tings. Manuel.—" I had a right to deliver these extracts, as being Procureur of the Commons :' besides, fince the King of Prussia wished to enter into a Negotiation, it was of importance that his proposals should be heard. [ A loud., laugh Breard.—" I wish Manuel would explain him- self. Nothing ought to be concealed from the National Convention ; and if the King of Prussia- wishes to negotiate, he ought to address him- self to this Body." Simon.—" Manuel speaks to us of Negocia- tions, but there have been none: the pretended agent of the King of Prussa is an Adjutant- General of Dumourier. He came to Paris with a kind of commission from the King of Prussia. We had taken prisoner a Secretary of the King, of Prussia : this Secretary was released on the simple request of his master; but it was re- collected that one Georges, a Member of the Constituent Assembly, was detained a prisoner at Verdun. Dumourier therefore sent after the Secretary of the King of Prussia, and had him brought back. Dumourier then dispatched the Adjutant- General, to whom I allude, to the Enemy's camp, to propose an exchange of this Secretary for Georges. This exchange was I LLOYD'S EVENING- POST, And proposed to the King of Prussia who readily accepted of it. A conversation then took place between the Adjutant- General and his Prussian Majesty who complained that the King of France and his family had experienced every kind of indignity, being confined in the Cha- telet, where they were rotting upon straw with the rest of the prisoners. The Adjutant re- plied, that this was absolutely false, as they were m the Temple, a house formerly belonging to d'Artois." The Convention, after hearing this statement, proceeded to the Order of the day. LETTER FROM GENERAL LUCKNER. " GentleMEN, " Invited to Paris by the Executive Pro- visional Council, to examine with it the opera- tions of the campaign, I repaired thither imme- diately, and waited upon the Ministers. I hastened, however, to make my appearance in the National Convention— an Assembly invested with all authority, and all real power. I do not come, Gentlemen, to compliment you on your laws. You have erected the king- dom into a Republic; in this you have done right, and I declare my readiness to obey the Nation; but if it is the duty of a soldier to watch at his post, ought not his post to be safe and clearly defined, and ought it not to be honourable ? I cannot conceal from you, Gentle- men, ( that calumnies have been thrown out on all sides against me. I have said long ago, that the French language is not familiar to me ; but my heart is French. I am not acquainted with the art of speaking well; but I know, at any rate, my own business— that of fighting. Some expressions in my letters have been found fault with, but it is well known that I did not write these letters; and my enemies forget, that I never abandoned or suffered any person to abandon the post which this country has entrusted to me. They forget my conduct at Courtray, my disputes with a bad Minister and with La Fayette, in respect to whom I was in such a situation that I was always afraid lest he should throw me into the most cruel embarrassment. They do not speak of my conduct respecting the events of the 10th of August, and of my constancy in Silencing every 0pposition, till the arrival of the Commissioners of the National Assembly, who, I will venture to say, did nothing but finish the work I had begun. They are silent respecting my repeated journeys and my continual vigi- lance; but they speak against me on the events of the 10th. I caused, as they say, preparations to be made for marching against Paris; and this suspicion was sufficient to occasion my removal from my command. When the Commissioners of the National Assembly arrived, the light burst forth, and I was appointed Generalissimo; but was it to command and to direct the Armies to- wards the middle point of action ? No— it was to aid the Generals with my advice. They wished me to enter Chalons; I accordingly obeyed : but I am sometimes accused of sending away the volunteers, as if I had done a thing which was not done by the other Generals, who sent back the volunteers that they might be formed and removed them from the enemy, until they were fitted for appearing in the ranks. Sometimes it is asserted that I had not the con- fidence of the soldiers; as if exclaiming against me, as the new comers have done, could deprive me of the love of those who have seen me with them in the midst of danger. It is said that I have a son in the service of the Emperor; but my two sons are in the service of the King of Denmark, what is very certain is, that they have never given any cause of complaint in France. " In general one evil follows another; the people lost the good opinion which had been formed of me; I was called to Paris, and the enemy took possession of the frontiers. I thank the Ministry for not neglecting the suspicions which might have been excited by my letters This is a mark of their patriotism ; for it is time, I must confess, that doubtful characters should be removed ; it is time also that confidence should be restored to those who declare them- selves in such a manner that they cannot be ranked among the number of the suspected. " Representatives of the Nation, Luckner does not come among you to complain, but he comes to declare his political creed. He loves the French Nation. Honoured in several States, he is desirous of terminating his life in that in which he has been esteemed the most. Having passed through every degree of rank that a mi- litary- man can obtain, he wishes to finish his career with honour ; he thinks himself incapable of tarnishing his honour; and he desires no other happiness than that of sacrificing his life to the service of a great Nation, who had sacrificed every thing for Liberty. He may be allowed to speak of honour, for he has always preserved it; and everything is comprehended in honour, so dear to the French Nation. Why then should he, instead of being suffered to command troops, see himfelf obliged to repair to the metropolis to justify himself? Whatever may happen, he here repeats the oath he has already taken of being in every thing faithful and obedient to the Nation. ( Signed) LUCKNER." M. Collet d'Herbois observed, that it was ne- cessary that M. Luckner's justification should be complete. How was it possible to excuse his indulgence in respeCt to Jarry, the incen- diary ? Why had not he tried him by a Court martial ? M. Albite accused Marshal Luckner, on ac- count of his conduct in the late expedition into the Belgic Provinces ; and upon his motion, the Assembly decreed : 1. That the Military Committee should give in an immediate report on his Letter. 2. That it should be intimated to him, not to leave Paris, until their report had been de- livered in. A Decree was passed, " that in the formula of Oaths, the word Republic should be used in- stead of Nation." MM. Manuel, Thuriot, and Le Page, the three Commissoners sent to restore tranquillity at Orleans, intimated that their mission had been successful, and that they had celebrated a Civic Feast, at which all parties had assisted, and solemnly promised to live in confraternity with each other hereafter. The first of the Commissioners proposed, that the rich Capitalists of the place should pay all the losses lately incurred by their neglect and carelessness, as they were above interesting themselves relatively to the affairs of their country. ORDER OF THE DAY, After a short debate, the Convention de- creed : 1. That the pensions granted by the Consti- tuent Assembly to Priefts without functions, should be suppressed ; 2. From this Decree, all Priests of above fifty years of age are excepted ; but their pen- lions shall not exceed 1000 livres per an- num. 3. The maximum to be granted to all secular and regular Priests, not public functionaries. shall be 1000 livres, which shall not be paid until due. M. Manuel proposed to suppress entirely all clerical establishments ; but the Members on all sides cried out " The time is not yet come !" Evening. The Minister at War wrote to the Convention, that the dispatches he had received from the armies contained no new military operations. He how- ever said that the army of Dumourier and Kel- lerman were going to execute a movement which would be of great importance to the success of the campaign. Some unimportant business relative to the elections of the Commons of Paris engaged the attention of the Assembly during the rest of the Session. LONDON. In corroboration of the important intelligence given in our last, of the defeat and surrender of General Dumourier's Army, dispatches were yesterday received at Lord Grenville's Office from the Earl of Elgin, dated Brussels, September 28, stating that just as the Mail was departing a Courier had arrived there with an account— That the Duke of Brunswick had taken Chalons on the 22d of September ;— that - General Clairsait had taken Rheims on the 24th;— and that, on the 25th, the Combined Armies had by a dextrous manoeuvre, completely surrounded the army of General Dumourier ; that the General had in vain Solicited permission to march to Paris, abandoning their artillery, tents, ammu- nition, and provisions: and that the Duke of Brunswick had insisted that they should lay down their arms, to which at length they had been obliged to submit, and that 25,000 men had accordingly laid down their arms ;— that on the 26th, the triumphant army of the in- vaders were advanced to Meaux, within 12 leagues of Paris. Lord Elgin kept his dispatches unsealed to the last moment, expeCting further official informa- tion relative to this event, and has promised to transmit the accounts by a Special Messenger as soon as he shall receive them. The above news is said to be confirmed by the testimony of M. de Calonne, who arrived at Dover from Brussels on Sunday morning, and hearing that Mr. Pitt was then at Walmer Castle, went there, and had an interview with him of some length. Extract of a Letter from Vienna, Sept. 12. " This morning early Baron Van Spielman, accompanied by the Privy- Counsellor Van Kolmbach, set out for the Combined Armies, through Coblentz and Luxemburgh. As we still hope that the Combined Armies will reach Paris, and re- establish a monarchical govern- ment, with some restrictions, the above Noble- men are to go to that city with them. Thus their journey may be of long duration, as most likely the Armies will winter it in France. Baron Spielman will assist the Duke of Bruns- wick in arranging the government of the pro- vinces which have been, and may be taken. Count de Mercy and Baron Thugut are to carry on any negociationj that it may be thought necessary to enter into in this business ; in the mean time it is not easy to say with whom any negotiations can be carried on," Oct. 1— 3. BRITISH CHRONICLE, for 1792. LS GAZETTE EXTRAORDINARY. Sept. 26. We learn from the Head- Quarters of the Im- perial Army commanded by his Royal High- ness the Duke de Saxe Teschen, that his High- ness repaired before Lille with a part of his troops on the 24th instant ; that the Head- Quarters have been transferred to Flers, a vil- lage situated at a little distance from the Capi- tal of French Flanders; that on the next day his Royal Highness had Summoned the inhabi- tants of the said province to return under the government of his Most Christian Majesty; and that, in order to encourage them to this, he had published the following proclamation : ' The late unfortunate events of France ha- ving determined his Majesty the Emperor and King, as the good neighbour to French Flanders, to come to the succour of the ho- cest Citizens of that Province, and save their legitimate King and the Royal Fa- mily from the misfortunes which overwhelm them; ' We declare by these presents that all those who lay down their arms, and submit to our protection shall be received as friends, and enjoy the protection of the laws; but those who oppose us shall be treated as rebels to their legitimate Sovereign. Given at our Head Quarters before Lille, Sept. 24, 1792 ( Signed) ' ALBERT.' Far from accepting such a moderate invita- tion, the Garrison of Lille appeared ready to defend that place; and several detachments ad- vanced against the out- posts of the Imperial Army on the morning; of the 25th: but they were driven back to the suburbs ; and as the Enemy appeared desirous to maintain them- selves in the Fauxbourg des Fisves, Major- Ge- neral Count de Staray was ordered to dislodge them at the head of a battalion of the regiment of Atton. The good dispositions made by this General, and the bravery of the Imperial troops, soon forced the Enemy to retreat towards the town ; and Fisves being then occupied by our men, they began to entrench themselves, which they still continue to do, under the cannon of the place. These works are carrying on under the di- rection of Lieutinant- Colonel the Marquis de Chateler, and M. le Major de Harnel de Querlonde, of the Corps of Engineers, who act under the immediate superintendance of M. de Fele- Zeugmeister, Comte de Browne, who in this attack has rendered the most sig- nal services. He had 20 men killed, and 80 wounded. The troops have displayed a valour and dis- cipline above all eulogium ; one Captain and a Lieutenant of Clairsayt's, are wounded. Among the officers who distinguished themselves most, is Major Count de Rebancourt, of Clairsayt's Regiment. Extract of a Letter from Brussels, Sept. 28. « ' On the 2lst instant a detachment of the garrison of Longwi Conducted 71 Frenchmen to . uxemburg, who had been made prisoners in different skirmishes that had taken place between the Combined Army and the French troops Scattered in the environs of St. Menehould. Almost Bas ese prisoners were National Guards. " The Austrian corps which is arrived under the command of Count d'Erbach to carry on the liege of Thionville, instead of the Emigrants, is 12,000 men strong. " After the attempt of the 10th inst. against M. Kellerman's army, the Prussians, being united to the army under General Clairsayt, which formed their right, marched towards Rheims.— The light troops pushed forward across the Suippe woods, within two posts of Rheims. The Hulans extended themselves without mo- lestation all along the Aisne, and occupied Attigui, le Chesne, Semuk, and other villages situate upon that river. It occasioned very great consternation through the city,— a con- sternation the more alarming, as some of the National troops in Rheims were dispofed to de- fend themselves. Every body hastened to pack up their most valuable effects : a part of the towns- people ran out of the city, and, each fol- lowing his inclination, some came to seek an- asylum among the Austrians, others fled into the interior parts of France. " These particulars are written from Rheims, and dated the 22d instant. The same letter mentions, that the two MM. de St, Souple, brothers, ( one of them is a Knight of Malta), took possession of their property at the distance of three leagues from Rheims, at the moment that two French Municipal officers of that city were coming to put the furniture of their house, or castle, up to public auction : but these offi- cers hearing on their way that they would find some hundred Austrian Hulans there did not think proper to proceed on their mission, and prudently retired home. " The Emigrant Army, commanded by the Duke de Bourbon, which was at first destined to attack Givet and Philippeville, is returned to the Ardennes.- it has since received orders to march to Mons, by the route of Namur. It is either to replace the Austrian troops which ate quitting all these places to reinforce the Duke de Saxe Teschen's army, or to occupy Lille in case of success." The Imperial Minister at the Hague has deli- vered to the States General a note similar to that presented here by the Imperial and Sicilian Ministers, requesting, that no asylum may be af- forded to those who shall injure the persons of the French King or Queen. The States General have returned an answer similar to that of Lord Grenviile, with this addition that the prohibition shall extend to the Colonies of the Republic in the East and West- Indies. They write from Tyrnau, in Hungary, that a most violent storm fell there on the 7th, at four o'clock in the morning, and lasted 40 hours, doing infinite damage at Presbourg, Tyrnau, Haimes, Senquiez, Groffmased, Pusta- sodereg, Tarkasin, Maichny, Apay, St. Tiring, and Bessing in which places tne lightning de- stroyed the greatest part of the houses. The famous Vicomte Mirabeau died at Fri- bourg of an apoplexy, and was interred on the 17th, by the Austrians and French Emigrants, with all possible military honours. Six hundred French from Saar- Louis have plundered the castle of Baron Van Zandt near Dachtstuhl. A letter from Colmar, of the 18th ult. says: —" The camp of General Ferrieres, which was near Hasingen, is moved to St. Louis, not not above three miles from Basle. The Ma- gistiates have sent a deputation to Prince Ester- hazy at Fribourg, who returned them a very friendly answer, expressed in general terms; but the Swiss have determined to support their neutrality in the most strict manner, and the 323 principal Cantons keep the companies of troop8 whjch return from France in their pay." A letter from Berne, dated Sept. 6, says " All our Cantons have been surprised and irritated at the massacre of their subjects at Paris, for having been faithful to the service of the King. A meeting was held on the subject at Frawenfeld, which opened its Sessions on the 2d of this month, to concert the measures to be taken against a People who have offended the majesty of the Swiss Nation, by murdering their subjects instead of protecting them. They have ordered a mourning for 15 days, for these unfortunate victims, during which time all the public amusements are to be shut up throughout the Cantons of Switzerland." By letters from the Austrian camp before Thionville we learn, that serious preparations are making for the formal siege of the place. The Prince of Hohenlohe was between Varennes and Clermont on the 17th, and the Hessian Corps was within three miles of him. In a letter from Verdun they write as follows —" The return of our respectable Bishop was a day of triumph to all good citizens; that worthy Pastor was received like a good father who had been long absent from his family."' Extract of a Letter from Warsaw, Sept. 15. " Numberless circumstances have as yet pre- vented forming inte one the multiplicity of ob- jects agreed on by the two Serene Confederations of the Crown and of Lithuania, and of their concerting together a general plan of the neces- sary reforms to be made in the Political and Civil Government of the State. But a species of Congress is going to be held for this purpose at Breze in Lithuania, between the principal Ministers of the Republic and the Diet, and it. is to be hoped general tranquillity will soon take place." On Saturday Sir George Warren gave a grand dinner to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, with a large company of his friends, at his house on the Cliff, at Brighton. , Yesterday his Excellency the Sardinian Envoy had a private audience of Lord Grenville, at his- Office, Whitehall. On Sunday morning a packet arrived at Brighton from Dieppe, with upwards of 60 Swiss officers, amongst whom were M. Bilieuse, M. de Morrier, M. de Glutz, M. de Domes- tiquie, M. de Hutchinsotein, M. de Vepasseur, M. de Gibelin, and several Officers formerly be- longing to the French King's Guard.

A Doctor Tavares, a Portuguese physician, has succeeded Dr. Willis in the care of the Queen of Portugal, whole health is not yet amended. He pursues the directions of Dr. Willis, and has proposed that her Majesty shall try a voyage by sea as far as the Canary Islands, soliciting for that purpose the equipment of a small squadron Yesterday the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, several of the Aldermen, Recorder, City Offi- cers, the old and new Sheriffs, & c. met in the Council Chamber, Guildhall, and proceeded from thence to the three Cranes, attended by the City Marshals, and the Court of Assistants of the Goldsmiths and Wheelwrights Company where they embarked on board the City and Goldsmiths barges, and went to Westminster Hall where the two new Sheriffs were sworn in, went through the usual ceremonies before 3* 4 LLOYD'S E V E N I N - F; O S TV And Qct 1— 3, the Cuifitor Baron of the Exchequer.

He was received at the Caille gate by the Deputy Warden ( Major North), and the Civil Officers of the Caftle. A Cap- tain's Guard of 50 tnen, of the 24th regiment, were drawn up within the walls, who ptefented arms and beat a march, as a compliment to the Admiral of the Cinque- Ports. A falute of 19 guns was then given; after which Major North • delivered the keys of the Caftle to Mr. Pitt, who immediately returned them to him. A prefentation of the Officers of the Garrifon by Lieutenant- Colonel Strutt then followed; and a eold collation., prepared by the Deputy War- den, concluded the furrender of the ancient ; Caftle of Dover to its Conftable."
