C 449 3 LLOYD'S EVENING- POST. * VOL. LXXI. From WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, to FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1792. [ NUMB. 5518. THURSDAY, NOV. 8. AFFAIRS of F R A N C E. PARIS, AW. 4. THIS city is still quiet. — The anarchists are busy ; but their num- bers are few, and their means are small. Their importance is now chiefly owing to the exaggerations of ---• -.-- r - ... _ „ their opponents. Their last resource is to spread rumours of a com- motion, on such a day, at such a place. Curiosity collects a crowd ; and if there be not a commotion, there is something that looks like one. But the people are unani- mous in their wish for quiet, and to be excul- pated from the odium of the massacre of the prisoners. The Department of Finistcrre has sent a cir- cular letter to all the Sections of Paris, import- ing that they will surround the Convention, if neccessary, with the whole armed force of the Department; and that a considerable number of their National Guards are already on their march. The SeCtions have applied to the Mi- nister at War respecting this conflux of volun- teers The Minister has written, in answer, that the volunteers come not to Paris by his command, and that the first order he shall give them will be to depart. In the mean time he ad- vises the Sections to receive the volunteers as bro- thers. to afford them every possible degree of hospitality and accommodation, and prove to to them that the calumnies circulated against the people of Paris are unfounded. The Sections have wisely taken his advice ; and most of the volunteers are lodged, by invitation, in the houses of such citizens as have room for them. Marat has chosen to conceal himself, probably to avoid the just punishment which seems to await him. Many people, however, have their fears that this man has only retired to hatch new mischiefs, and involve the capital in new calamities. Brissot, in his journal of this day, mentions that there is a report of the death of the Emperor and the Duke of Brunswick. A great number of Emigrants have been stopped and imprisoned at Boulogne, Calais, & c. The late severe decree against those not taken in arms, it is to be hoped, will be soon modi- fied, if not entirely repealed. NATIONAL CoNVeNTlON. Friday, Nov. 2. The Convention decreed, that the castle of the Tuileries, and the buildings adjoining, are to be at the disposal of the Assembly; and that the Minister for the Home Department shall present an estimate of the expence of fitting up a Hall in it for their Sittings, and make the rest into offices and archives,. It WAS observed, that the present Hall was too small and inconvenient for the purpose, and that the building and ground adjoining would sell very well. The Administrators of St. Marne complained, at the bar, of the discredit of the notes of the Caisse de Secours. The Convention decreed, that on the following day a general report should be given in of the state of paper- money. The Council General of Boulogne sur Mer, wrote, that a great number of Emigrants were returning into France again, and requested to know what is to be done with respect to them. " The Penal Laws," they observed, " against the Emigrants, were easy to make ; but the necessity of acting with justice, rendered the distinCtion of these penalties extremely dif- ficult. Would you, for example, compare the man whom fear obliged to fly his country in- stantly on the 2d of September, and who wishes to return again now that the Convention has stopped all proscription, to the wretch who has daringly gone and raised the Austrians and Prus- sians against our liberties? Would you punish these two alike i" A debate ensued on the subject of the murder of M. Gerard at L'Orient; and it was decreed that the matter should be buried in oblivion, having taken its rise from an ardent desire to avenge the country for a supposed treason, and not from any thirst after blood ; and in great Revolutions such things were unavoidable:— 409 voted for the Decree, and 125 against it. It was twice put to the vote, from the minority's insisting upon their being equal. The Convention decreed, that the Workmen, who, since the cessation of their 1abour, had returned home, should receive three sous for each league they had to go. A letter from the Minister at War was then read, in which he observed, that the Contrac- tors for provisions had, without his authority, purchased specie to the amount of 1,728, livres, under a pretence that the National Trea- sury did not afford them supplies proportioned to their necessities; and they requested that this sum might be reimbursed. But as they had left their accounts in confusion, and been very irregular, the Minister said, he had been in- duced to striKe out this article of expences from their accounts." ( Applauded). In a second letter, the same Minister as- sured the Convention, that he had taken proper measures to prevent the ContraCtors for shoes from robbing the Republic, by furnishing bad articles. Commissioners had been chosen from the 48 Sections of Paris to inspect the shoes in the magazines of St. Denis, three fourths of which they found bad, and consequently re- jected. A Letter was read from General Valence, dated the 31st of October, informing the Con- vention, that on the day of the affair of Virton, after the departure of the Austrians from the Castle de la Tour, the French troops had found the trophies which the Austrians took in the year 1790 from the Belgians. He wished to know whether he was to restore them to ths Belgians, or what was to be done with them.' The Convention decreed that they should be sent to Dumourier, who should restore them to the Belgians. On the report of the Colonial Committee, by M. Mazarde, the National Convention decreed, that 10,458,000 livres, drawn for by the Trea- surer of St. Domingo, shall be Honoured by the Commissioners of the Treasury. November 3. A letter was read from General Chabot com- plaining of Marat's slanders against him. A letter from the friends of Liberty and Equa- lity at Strasburgh, announced that the Mayencois wish to be united to France, and that their only fear is that of again falling into the power of the Despots from whom France has delivered them. M. Rhul supported their request, and proposed that the Republic of France should take them under its protection.— Referred to the Legislative Committee. A letter was read from the inhabitants of Montauban, inviting the Assembly to pay less attention to personal disputes and private pique, and to interest themselves more for the safety of the Republic.— Ordered that honourable mention should be made of this Address. The new Administrators of Verdun, sent a melancholy account of what has passed in that town during the stay of the Prussians, pointing out the most odious acts of tyranny on the one hand, and conduct of the most abject nature on the other.— Referred to the Committee of Ge- neral Safety. A letter was read from the Marine Minister, informing the Convention, that he, by letters from Nice, had learnt the arrival of the squa- dron commanded by Rear- Admiral Truguet be- fore Oneille; that Admiral sent a boat, either to summon the city to surrender, or learn they proposals of the Commandant; but some peasants. in ambush fired on the boat, killed Aubersme- nille, Aide- de- Camp to the General, Isnard, a midshipman, and five others. Duchallia and some more were wounded. The squadron however, consisting of six ships, had avenged the French Nation by a terrible fire, which had destroyed part of the city. Two Commissioners from the Administrative Bodies of Lyons, were admitted to the bar. They called the attention of the House to the deplorable condition of that city. The distur- bances there are solely occasioned by the distress of 30,000 workmen, who have no em- ployment at present. They requested relief. A report was presented in the name of the Committee of Agriculture and Commerce, re- specting the present scarcity of provisions. The report first examined the causes of the scarcity and dearness of corn, and of the uneasiness of the people on that account. They were found t to originate in the fears, sometimes pretended, of a great number of farmers who would not carry their corn to market ; the criminality of others, who exported grain fraudulently and in the error of some, who prevented provisions from being circulated through the interior parts of the Republ c. The Committee proposed the plan of a de- cree : — 1st, To enjoin all farmers and proprietors. 45 ® of land to give in, immediately after the issuing of the decree, a declaration to their respec- tive Municipalities, of the grain they have in their granaries, and what they have still to thresh in their barns ;- 2dly, That exporters of grain do suffer two years imprisonment in irons;— 3dly, That the Minister of the Home Department should receive 12,000,000 livres to buy grain in foreign countries. -— After ordering the printing and adjournment of the above plan, the Convention decreed, that j 2 millions should be placed in the hands of the Home Minister, to relieve those places which stood in need of it; and he is to give an account of the expenditure thereof within 20 days. A letter was read from General Beurnonville, dated the 2d of November, informing the Con- vention, that the Austrians had that morning evacuated the small town of Lannoy, but that he had not been able to make the garrison pri- soners. The Commissioners fent to the Army in the North wrote word, that they still continue; to visit the different posts occupied by the French troops. General Dumourier has held a Coun- cil of War at Valenciennes, to concert the plan ef the campaign, which the French are about to open in . Brabant, The resolutions cannot be made public; but the Commissioners assure the Convention, that the Belgians shall soon be free. To their letter was annexed one from the army in the North , mentioning the heroism of a soldier. who, at the head of four others, resisted an Austrian detachment for two hours, repulsed by an able manoeuvre, and covered several villages. This brave man, named Man- gin, was made an Officer at the head of the garrison of Maubeuge. LLOYD'S EVENING- POST, And Nov. - 7— t/ j LONDON, Extract of a Letter from Warsaw, Oct. 17. On the 15th Mr. Gardiner, the new British Minister, had his first audience of the King. " It is decidedly fixed, that the illustrious Confederation shall open their sessions as Grodno, on the zoth inst, " The Prince Primate, Brother of the King, is returned here; but nothing has transpired relative to the conferences since held between him and M. Potocki, Marshal of the Confedera- tion. " We are assured that the King refused giving letters of credence to the Delegation gone to Petersburgh, alledging that none were given to those sent in 1767. The Polish garrifon at Cracow has been obliged to cede the place to the troops of Russia. " As to the troops of the Republic, their locality is so circumscribed by the Russians, that they cannot make the least movement without the approbation of the Russian army." Extract of a Letter from Vienna, Oct. 13. « « On the proposal made to the States of Hun- gary by the Archduke Palatine, it was decided to raise an army of 72,000 men to serve against France, under, the command of an Hungarian General. Every Lordship to furnish 1000 men, and the Nobility to equip them. " The States of Transylvania have agreed to offer the Emperor a war subsidy of half a million of florins, 2000 recruits, and 900 horses. " Twenty- eight battalions have received or- ders to march. " A detachment of 1500 artillery- has marched from this town. The preparations for war, of every kind, are in the greatest forwardness." PROCLAMATION OF THE EMPEROR WITH RESPECT TO THE FRENCH EMIGRANTS. ART. I. The Emigrants, serving, or aCting as volunteers in the army of the French Princes, must not on any account reside in any other places than those fixed for the cantonment of that army. All those who may chance to be, or. shall appear in any other town or place in this country, shall be arrested by the Officers of the Police, assisted, if necessary, by the military, to be conducted back again to the said army ; and in case of any resistance, they will be punished as disturbers of the public tranquillity. H. The other French Emigrants, of what- ever rank or quality, ecclesiastics or lay- men, who do not hire a house, or quarters, must leave the country within the space of eight days, from this date, on pain of being treated as vaga- bonds. III. Such of the Emigrants, as, in consequence of the preceding article, may remain in the country, must within the said space of eight days, give in to the chief Officer of Justice, or Police, in the place where they reside, an exaCt deposition, signed by them, containing their baptismal and family names, as well as those of their family, servants included, with a particular direction to their lodgings, the last place of re- sidence they had in France, likewise their rank and profession. Those who shall remain without giving these informations, or shall wear cock- ades or white plumes in their hats, must also leave the country under the same penalties. IV. The Officers of Justice and Police must deliver in the depositions which they shall have received in the execution of the preceding article to the Fiscals of the respeCtive- Provinces, who will then forward them to Government. Done at Brussels, under his Majesty's private seal, the 23d of October, 1792. The Proclamation of the Archduchy of the Netherlands against the Emigrants, which at first sight apppears alarming, is said to have no other object in view but to oblige them to join their corps, and the better to discover the Jacobins who may be amongst them in disguise. The King of Prussia has agreed to take the care of 8000 of the Emgrants upon himself, and the Emperor of the rest. The Duke of Wirtemberg, who was upon the point of entering into an alliance with the House of Austria against France, has now re- solved to continue his neutrality. The account in the Brussels Gazette of four- teen ammunition- waggons being taken from the French in the affair at Baisieux, is contradicted by the Statements of the latter, which assert that the French fell back on the approach of a fresh body of Auftrian troops from Tournay, and carried off not only their ammunition waggons, but likewise their killed and wounded. The German Professors Boehmer and Win- ticking, who had been deprived of their of- fices for their efforts in the cause of liberty, are now at Mentz, under the protection of M. Cus- tine, who allows them 500 livres a month for reading leCtures to a Society established there. The colours taken by the French from the army of the Princes de Conde, d'Artois, and the other emigrants, were burned in Paris, on the 4th instant, by the hands of the common executioner. About an hundred and fifty inhabitants Lille, it is said, fell, during the late bom- bardment of that city. The National Assembly of Savoy passed a decree for the abolition of Convents, for the seizing and selling the property of the Church, and sequestrating the estates of such Emigrants as do not return within a certain period. The Commander of the French fleet in the Mediterranean, has sent notice to the Grand Duke of Tuscany, that he shall not offer any violence to his dominions. COURT NEWS, & C. Yesterday morning the King and Queen in their travelling post haste, and the six Princesses with their attendants, in two post- coaches and four, arrived at Buckingham House from Wind- sor.

Yonge ;— and at five o'clock went to Buck- ingham House to dinner. In the evening the Royal Family went to Co- vent- garden Theatre.

Major Ephinstone, by his uncle Commodore Elphinstone; and Capt. Stuart, on his arrival from Vienna, by Sir Robert Murray Keith. Yesterday his Excellency Mons. Tronchier, Minister from the Republic of Geneva to this Court, was presented to the King in the usual form by Lord Grenville, and Sir Clement Cot- trell Dormer, Master of the Ceremonies, when he delivered his credentials. Sir Robert Murray Keith continued in private with the King yesterday for upwards of an hour and a half, and laid several important papers before his Majesty from Vienna and Brussels. Sir George Yonge laid before the King his | months return of the state of the army on the British establishment, Mess. Mace and Lucas took leave of the King; the former on going Consul to Algiers, and the latter on going in the same situation to Tripoli. Nov. 7— B R I T I S .

Government dispatches were sent off fron Lord Grenville's Office to Charles Whitworth his Majesty's Envoy at the Court of Petersburgh. Count Paravicini Capelli, who was yes- terday at the Levee, is the only Officer of the late swiss guards of France, who was saved at the massacre at the Palace of the Tuileries, in Paris. A terrible massacre was made of the White People at St. Domingo, on the 6th of Septem- ber. Mr. Walsh, an Irish gentleman, who pos- sessed a very considerable estate near the French Cape in that Island, was one of the unhappy victims. Yesterday a Court of Directors was held at the India House, which adjourned at four o'clock to Wednesday next. Capt. John Hall, of the Worcester, for Bencoolen, and lestock Wilson, of the Exeter, for Bombay and China, attended, and were sworn into the command of their respective ships.

Yesterday morning Captain Case, of the An- telope cutter, seized and brought into Ports- mouth, 400 calks of foreign spirits. Dr. Milner the master of Queen's College, Cambridge, is elected Vice- Chancellor of that ' University for the year ensuing. Such of the Royal Academicians as were in town met on Tuesday, at the Royal Academy, Somerset- House, for the election of an Associate. There were several candidates for the honour in the first ballot, who had few votes except proxies: in the second, which is decisive, the contest was between two; and for Mr. Westall there were 15, Mr. Hoppner 5. Mr. Westall was consequently declared duly elected. The floods are so much out in many parts of the kingdom as still to prevent the farmers sowing their wheat. On Monday evening, as the mail- coaches were going off from Gloucester Coffee- house, in Piccadilly, a hackney- coach attempted several times to get a- head of one, which it effected, and continued before them till they got a little on the other side of Knightsbridge, when, in consequence of a dispute between the two coach men, they began to exercise their whips very severely on each other, which contest was ter- minated by the guard of the mail- coach firing his pistol at Jones, the hackney- coachman, the ball of which lodged in his leg. He was car- ried to St. Bartholomew's Hofpital, where he will be obliged to have his leg amputated.

THE well- known Reputation of the Author would be sufficient to rccommend the above Work to the Public ; but we think it necessary to mention, chat it was his last Performance in this transitory life ; the last Efforts of a great Mind, unnerved by the rapid Decay of Nature, and even in the Grasp of Death ; yet ardently exerting its debi- litated Powers for the Promotion of Science and Virtue.

TROTTER, Chymist, of bear- lane, who constantly supplied Debraw. This Article is cleansing and beautifying to the Teeth, sweetening to the Breath; and the safety of its use, from not having in its composition any acid that can corrode or weir off the enamel, are facts acknowledged by the most respectable Medical Authorities, and which have established its reputation with persons of the first distinction. From its astringency it strengthens the Gums, eradicates the Scurvy, preserves sound teeth from decay, prevents de- cayed Teeth from becoming worse, and often proves the happy means of securing them from being drawn, as many Ladies and Gentlemen who have been in the habit of using it can affirm. But what enhances it in their estimation, is its having cured that most excruciating of all pains, the Tooth- Ach, with- which many of them before that period were violently afflicted.

WELCH'S FEMALE PILLS; x AMEDICINE long known for its ftng ular virtues in removing Disorders more especially com- mon to the younger part of the FEMALE SEX ; and had not the numerous deceptions, continually practised upon the Public, by substituting other Compositions, of very inferior value, in lieu of this, induced the Proprietors to come forward, in a more amenable situation, to support : ts pretensions to public favour, its circulation would have still continued rapidly 11 increase through- the medium of private recommendation ; and of this recommendation the Proprietors need not be a little proud, when they can number the noble, the affluent, and the disinterested, as their willing supporters: Medical Professors, particularly, have frequently recommended them when their private practice has failed of success. These PILLS are eminent ' in removing Obstructions to which unmarried Ladies at a certain period are subject ; also what is commonly called the Green Sickness: they create an Appetite, correct bad Digestion, remove Giddi- ness, and are of distinguished excellence in Windy Dis orders, Head- Achs, Pains in the Stomach, Shortness of Breach, and Palpitation of the Heart: also Married Wo- men will be materially benefited by taking them three or four weeks after delivery, as they cleanse the body, and carry off gross humours. Their virtues may extend further; but for the cure of the Complaints above mentioned, upon application to the Venders, the most unequivocal testimonies can be pro- duced ; and the Proprietors flatter themselves, that if the nature of the cases permitted them to publish them in a more general way, they could produce a more numerous and more respectable list of Vouchers to the efficacy of this Medicine, than could be produced to any other ex- tant. They are sold by Messrs. Kearsleys, No. 46, Fleet- street, with directions, Price 2s. 9d. pei Box, Stamp- Duty included , or upon taking one dozen, the value of the Stamps will be deducted.

THE Nobility, Gentry, and the Public, are respectfully informed, mat they may be supplied, at No. 9, Princes- street, Cavendish- square with DOCTOR CORNWELL's ORIENTAL VEGETABLE CORDIAL; A Medicinal Preparation, which has stood the Test of Twelve Years Experience in his Britannic Majesty's Do- minions, with great Esteem, in a Variety of Complaints. Vide the Treatise. Another recent Case of Cure : James Draper, a respectable House- keeper, in New Swallow- street, for Forty Years, has, at various times, been subject to violent excruciating Pains in the Stomach and Bowels, insomuch that his Life had been despaired of; but, from taking a few Glasses of the Oriental Vegetable Cordial, he has always found effectual Relief. And the said James Draper most solemnly declares, that he attri- butes his Existence, under Divine Providence, to the effica- cious Properties of this Medicinal Cordial. Its peculiar Efficacy is, to correct and assist a bad Di- gestion ; to recruit the animal Spirits, cherish and invigo- rate the System. It is also excellent, and almost instan. taneous, in easing Pain, often occasioned from over Reple- tion of Fruits, Vegetables, or any improper Sustenance. In Bilious Disorders, attended with violent Pain, or Spasm, Sickness, Vomiting, Flatulence, Hysteric Affec- tions, Lowness of Spirits, Gouty and Rheumatic Attacks, it is deserving implicit Confidence, by giving speedy Re- lief ; and by a regular Perseverance in its Use, ultimately effects a Cure. It is elegant in Appearance, and highly grateful in Flavour. Sold, by Appointment of the Patentee, Dr. B.

For COUGHS, CONSUMPTIONS, & c. PECTORAL ESSENCE of COLTSFOOT. THE Herb Coltsfoot, called Tussilago by the ancients, was distinguished by them, as its name sufficiently conveys, for its excellence in the cure of coughs and other pulmonary complaints ; and this essence has, in the course of a long praCtice, been found the most safe and effectual remedy for coughs, asthmas, wheezings, phthisicky complaints, consumptions, hoarseness, de- fluxions, catarrhs, difficulty of breathing, and all disorders of the breast and lungs. It gently opens the breast, and im- mediately gives liberty of breathing, without any danger of taking cold. It admirably allays the tickling- which pro- vokes frequent coughing, and takes off the uneasy sensation of acrimonious humour, cleanses the small glands, relaxes the fibres, and thereby enlarges the cavities of the vessels. Thus it regularly and quickly cures the most obstinate asthmas, and consumptions of the longest standing, if taken before the lungs are ulcerated. It cures all bulky and dry coughs, dissolves congealed phlegm in the thorax, heals rawness and soreness of the breast. stomach, and lungs ; and gives immediate relief to those who, through age and infirmity, are deprived of rest or deep, as it generally composes, and contributes to make the remainder of their days comfortable and easy. This Essence is prepared only by James Ryan, Surgeon, in Bristol; ini fold, wholesale and retail, by Francis Newbery, at Wo. 45, the east end of St. Paul's, London, in Bottles, price 3s. 6d. each, duty included. N. B. As many persons continually mistake Mr. New- bery's house, particularly servants and messengers, all pur- chasers are requested to observe, that it is a little out of the general line of foot- passengers, five doors from the cor- ner of Cheapside ; and that a bust of Dr. James, and these words, are against the front of his house, viz. THE ONLY WAREHOUSE FOR DR. JAMES's POWDERS. The following Celebrated MEDICINES are faithfully pre- pared by J. MAC HAN and Co. and, by their Ap- pointment, sold Wholefale and Retail, by Messrs.

THE superior Excellence of thefe Medicines ( difcovered by the late Dr. MAC HAN) compared with others recommended in the like Intentions, is fo fully proved, by the Experience of many Years, that the Pro- prietors, desirous of rendering them more extensively useful to the Public, have offered them at a Price so moderate, as to put them within the reach of the Afflicted of all Ranks.

Gratitude for the singular Cure I owe to your excellent Medicine, has in- duced me to communicate this Information to you ; and that others, afflicted in the like manner, may know where to obtain the same Relief, you have my free consent to publish it.

FRIDAY, Nov. 9. LONDON. COURT NEWS, YESTERDAY morning the King took an airing on horseback, attended by Colonel Goldsworthy, from Buckingham House to Kew, and returned to town by twelve o'clock. Yesterday, soon after one o'clock, the King, Queen, and three Princesses, came from Buck- ingham House to St. James's Palace, when Mons. Tronchier, the new Genoese Envoy, had an audience of the Queen, to deliver his cre- dentals, to which he was introduced by Earl Morten, and conducted by Sir C. C. Dormer. The Drawing- Room began soon after two o'clock, and was over before five. The circle consisted of their Majesties and the three eldest Princesses;— Duke of Gloucester, and Princess Sophia, his daughter ;— Mr. Pitt; — the foreign Ambassadors and Envoys, foreign Nobility, Officers of State, Naval and Military Officers, & c. as at the Levee on Wednesday. The Female Nobility were as follow ;— Duchesses of Leeds and Dorset; Marchioness of Salisbury ;— Coun- tesses of Morton, Chefterfield, Guildford, Cour- town, and Holderness, ( Lady in Waiting on the Queen) ;— Viscountess Sydney ; Ladies Grenvilie, Waterpark, L. M'Donald, Kenyon, M. Douglas, M. Kerr, Dorchester, and C. Waldegrave ( in Waiting on the Princesses) ;— Baronesses Nagell and Nolken Mistresses Moore, A. Stanhope, Jones, Pitt, two Walpoles, King, and A. Phipps ;— Messrs Digby and C. Waterpark. Their Majesties and the Princesses returned to Buckingham House after the Draw- ing- Room broke up, and in the evening there was an entertainment to celebrate the Princess Augusta's birth- day. The presentations were the same as to the King at the Levee, with the addition of Lord Mulgrave, on coming to the title; Lady Wa- terpark and her daughter, from Ireland ; and the officers lately promoted. The Earl and Countess of Guildford were in- troduced to the Queen, having been before presented at the Drawing- Room when her Ma- jesty was not present. After the Drawing- Room Lord Henry Spencer and Sir Robert Murray Keith were for some time in private conversation with the King. Yesterday General Lake, with two Corporals of the first Regiment of Foot- Guards, the one dressed in the usual uniform, and the other in a uniform which is superior in taste and lightness to the preceding, waited on the King at Buck- ingham House, when his Majesty, after inspect- ing them, gave the General his approbation of the latter; so that an alteration in the clothing of that regiment will take place next June. The Lord in Waiting gave notice that the King Would have a Levee this day at one o'clock. The Queen and Princesses returned to Wind- sor this morning; his Majesty follows after the Levee at St. James's is over. Yesterday their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and Duke of Clarence paid their respects in private to their Royal Parents at St James's Palace, previous to the commencement of the Drawing- Room.. His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester paid a visit yesterday noon to the Queen and Princesses, to felicitate them on the Princess Au- gusta's birth- dav. Yesterday evening his Royal Highness the Duke of Clarence dined with their Majesties and the Princesses at Buckingham- House. Yesterday afternoon the Duchess of Cumber- land arrived in town from Margate. Yesterday Lord Southampton and Mr. Sheri- dan had a private interview with their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales, and the Dukes of York and Clarence, at Carlton- House. Yesterday at noon Lord Grenvilie held a Levee at his Office, Whitehall, which was at- tended by all the Foreign Ministers. At half past two o'clock the Levee broke up, when they proceeded to the Queen's Drawing- Room. Yesterday Mr. Pitt gave audiences to several Members of both Houses of Parliament at his house in Downing- street, and in the evening dined with a party of his friends at Mr. Ryder's, at the Pay- Office. A French Gentleman, who had last year of his own accord, lent to the Princes, brothers of the French King, the sum of 5000I. sterling, for which M. de Calonne was held to be respon- sible, arrived in London two or three days since, and immediately took out a writ against M. de Calonne, whom he arrested on Wednes- day. The engagement having been imme- diately paid, the proceedings of course stopped ; but the circumstance shows in what disagreeable predicaments this Minister has stood from his zeal to maintain the cause of his King. The arrest of M. de Calonne appears to have originated in malice, and probably was done only to spread abroad a report injurious to his reputation. The gentleman who had M. de Calonne's engagement had been promised to be paid the 28th inst. the day for which it had been originally engaged. The arrest was the more cruel, as the money was sent to the French Princes, and not to M. de Calonne ; and the engagement was only counter- signed by him, as their Minister. The Right Hon. Lord Foley and Son, Sir Stephen Lushington and Son, Samuel Smith, Esq. M. P. his Lady and Daughter, Pybus, Esq. his Lady and two children, Captain Hay, the Duke de Coigny and Count Chalons, Mrs. and Miss Nesbitt, and the Rev. Mr. Sneyd and Lady, are among the list of passengers, who sailed on Tuesday, in the Howe Packet, for Lisbon. On Thursday, a Dispenfation passed the Seal, to enable the Rev. Henry Willis, A. M. Chaplain to the Right Honourable Lord Suf- field, to hold the Rectory of East Shefford, in ^ ov. 7— 9. Berks, with the Vicarage of Wap y in Glou- cestershire. On Friday last, the Rev. Charles Gore, M. A. of Emanuel College, Cambridge, was inducted to the valuable Vicarage of Henbury, with the chapels of Aust and Northwick, in the county of Gloucester, and Diocese of Bristol, on the joint presentation of Sir John Hugh Smyth, Bart, and John Gore, and Edward Gore, Esqrs. Wednesday one Mary Moorland, a poor wo- man, 60 years of age, being left in her room in Bunhill- row alone, fell against the fire in a fit, and was burnt to death. Monday some villains took advantage of the overturn of the Briftol stage, called the Prince of Wales's coach, and stole a trunk, containing a great quantity of apparel, Sec. the property of Mr. Obrien, at Osborn's Hotel. Tuesday night some thieves stole out of the apartments of Capt. Ross, at the Fighting- Cocks, Dartmourh- street, a quantity of wear- irg- apparel, a watch, and several other ar- ticles. Wednesday evening some thieves stole out of the shop of Mr. Higginson, of the Strand, a va- luable spring- clock. Same night Mr. James Fisher, of High- Hol- born, was stopped in Water- lane, near Kentish- Town, by three footpads, who robbed him of what cash he had about him. Wednesday, at Guildhall, Charles Vaughan, alias Fat Phillis, was committed by the Lord Mayor, on suspicion of having written a threaten- ing letter to Mr. Thomas Horne, the Stock- broker, who was mentioned in the anonymous information, by which the infamous club at the Bunch of Grapes, Clement's lane, was detected. Vaughan was charged with writing this letter, with intent to extort 10I. from Mr. Horne.. Ann Simpson was charged with carrying the letter to Mr. Horne, knowing for what purpose it was sent. They were both committed to the Poultry Compter for trial. Sarah Sathouse, a baker in Grub street, and Josiah Harvey, a baker in Beech- lane, were summoned before the above Magistrate, by the Master and Wardens of the Bakers Company, attended by their beadle, Mr. Callender, charged with having in their possession a quantity of alum, ready to mix with the flour, which they seized and brought away, and which was pro- duced,— They were convicted in the penalty of 40s. each. Yesterday, at the Public Office, Bow- street, Patrick Reid, a man who is employed as a guard to the Exeter Mail, was charged with firing at and dangerously wounding a hackney coachman, on Monday night at Knightsbridge. The man now lying in a dangerous state at St. George's Hospital, Mr. Bond refused bail, til he should have received the Surgeon's report. MARRIED. On Monday, William Smyth, Esq. of the Island of Grenada, to Miss Johnstone, only daughter of Edward Johnstone, Esq. of Liver- pool.— Yesterday, at St. Margaret's Churci, Westminfter, Mr. W.

Nov. 7— 9. POSTSCRIPT. AFFAIRS of fRANCE. PARIS, NOV. 5. This is the day appointed for hearing the an- swer of M. Roberspierre to. the numerous accu- sations adduced against him, and the present ap- pearances seem to indicate that there will be a tumult on this occasion. Yesterday the Federates paraded the streets, and called aloud for the heads of Marat, Dan- ton, and Roberspierre. The partisans of these, on the other hand, are said to have threatened the life of the elo- quent M. Louvet, who accused two of them of being engaged in the abominable conspiracy of the zd of September, The Magistrates of Francfort having levied the contribution assessed upon that city from the poorer class of inhabitants, Custine has ordered them to be re- imbursed their respective quotas, and has commanded that two millions of florins shall be levied on the opulent families who pro- tected and encouraged the Emigrants. This has produced a wonderful effect upon the majority of the inhabitants, who now wear the Patriotic cockade, and term themselves " French Citizens." The Bankers who expected to be plundered have been so much pleased with the discipline and conduct of the army, that they have subscribed the sum of four millions, which they are to offer, by way of patriotic donation, to the French Republic. A detachment of Custine's troops is said to have taken possession of Hanau. , The French General has delivered the Pea- santry in the neighbourhood of Mayence from all the feudal duties and services imposed upon them by their Lords. They term him " their Deliverer.'' The National Assembly of Savoy has abolish- ed tithes, annihilated titles, and burnt all armo- rial bearings. Custine has seized 14 millions of florins be- longing to the House of Austria. This sum was left in the hands of a Banker, in order to supply the demands of the Imperial troops. * It is greatly to be lamented, that this General and Kellerman have avowed the most decided enmity to each other. NATIONAL CONVENTION. Sunday, NoV. 4. lETTER FROM GENERAL custiNE. " Head- Quarters at Mayance, 0ct. 30, " First Year of the Republic. " CITIZEN PRESIDENT, " In a Republic, virtue and talents alone ought to have a right to esteem ; and if chance, or the valour of his troops, procure unmerited success to a General, every Citizen ought to anticipate an unfavourable event to the State, by denouncing the man whose unskilfulness may compromise the safety of its Armies. " I denounce Kellerman as unworthy the name of a General; unworthy, more especially, to command the troops of a Republic. " I can prove to you, that he fled in a cowardly man- ner at Daucheim j and my correspondence with him has proved to me his base jealousy, his haughty conduct, ( the constant companion of incapacity), and, above all, the want of reflexion, so visible in his plans. " It was easy for him to have prevented the Prussians from reaching Coblentz. If he had but crossd the Sarre, he must inevitably have taken both Treves and Coblentz ; the last of Which cities contained an immense quantity of provisions belonging to the Enemy. " I cannot enter into long details ; but I refer to the osed letters, A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H. and I, which will enable a Committee to " pronounce on the justice of my de- nunciation. " Even past services ought not to intitle any one to escape from a just chastisement; and were I fortunate enough to carry the glory of my Country to the height I wish it to arrive at, a single moment's neglect ought to de- prive me of my head by the hands of an executioner. Such should ever be the regimen of a Republic ; Citizens ought never to be puffed up with their successes.; from that in- stant, they become dangerous to their Country. He who neglects to give a mortal blow to the Enemies of the State, ought to experience the justice of the laws. Such are the ideas of a man who is ready to shed the last drop of his blood for the Commonwealth. " CUSTINE." Two Deputies from Nice, as Ambassadors of a free and independent people, were introduced into the middle of the Hall. They spoke in the name of their Fellow- Citizens, who request to become Frenchmen. Upon the motion of M. David, the Conven- tion decreed, That they should be embraced by the President, as a sign of that universal frater- nity which ought to unite all people ; but the As- sembly will wave deliberating upon their pro- posal till the inhabitants of the province of Nice shall have given their votes in their primary As- semblies. The Federates of the Departments request to share the service with their brethren in arms of Paris, till the moment of danger shall call them to the Frontiers. Deputies from the Session of Mauconseil, in the name of several Sections, showed some unea - siness, not about their brethren in arms of the Departments, but on account of their arrival and stay at Paris, the motives for which they were ignorant of. These petitions, so opposite to each other, seem to disclose the seeds of division, which the Con- vention should nip in the bud. M. Barrere moved, and the Convention de- creed, " That the Minister at War should give in a report of the state of the armed force, in- dependent of the National Guards, now in Paris." It was afterwards decreed, " That the Coun- cil- General of the Commons should give in an account of the execution of the promise they made, to inform against and prosecute those of its Members who ( hall have been guilty of pre- varication, or any thing contrary to the public tranquillity." The visit of the French army to Mentz has effected not only a conquest, but a revolution there. The people receive the French troops as brethren ; and a Society of Friends of the French. Constitution is already established by them, who have published the following, proces verbal of their first sitting. Having had the happiness to be delivered from the yoke of- ty- ranny by the French Armies, we, the under- signed, have engaged ourselves by a solemn oath to live free, or die. We have taken, at the same time, of our common accord, the resolu- tion to intreat the Society of Friends of the Constitution at Strasburgh to communicate to us its laws. Upon this occasion we have received from our deliverer, the French General Custine, by the mouth of M. Baehmer, a positive assu- rance, in the name and on the part of the august French Nation, that she will take us for ever under her protection." Letters from Calais, brought by the French mail of yesterday, mention, that news had been received there of the French having besieged Tournay and Mons. Near 4000 troops have " arrived at Calais as a Corps de Reserve to assist . Dumourier's army, which is computed to be 100,00 strong." 455 Extract of a Letter from. Ostend, Nov. 6. " Last Saturday 400 National Guards from Dunkirk attacked the village of Roosbrugg, four leagues from Ypres. It was bravely de- fended by, they say, only thirty troops of Lou- donvert, deeply entrenched. The French were repulsed, but next day they were joined by 200 more, with seven pieces of cannon. The strians received a reinforcement of only 20 men. The French again attacked, and were a second time repulsed, with the loss of 150 killed and wounded. " On the same night 250 cavalry went from Dunkirk to support the attack, and the Au~ strians were also reinforced from Poppring and Ypre's. We have heard the cannon every day at this place :— it continued the greater part of yes- terday, and at this moment a brisk cannonade is still kept up." AFFAIR Of HOnOur. A duel took place yesterday between M. de Chauvigny and Mr. Charles Lameth. This affair, which originated in a difference of opinion, had been, undecided for two years. It appears that M. de Chauvigny, having learnt the arrival of his antagonist in this country,, gave him a meeting and proposed to fight him ; which the latter assented to. The parties fought in a field near the place of Mr. Lameth's resi- dence, and he was dangerously wounded in the belly. The affair ended by both declaring themselves satisfied, and giving their word of honour that the matter was finally adjusted. The seconds were, for M. de Chauvigny, the Duke de Pienne and the Count de Chabane ; and for Mr. Lameth, the Duke d'Aiguillon and Mr. Maselet. COURT AT GUILDHALL. Yesterday a Court of Aldermen was held at Guildhall, present the Lord Mayor, Lord Mayor Elect, and several Aldermen. The Court unanimously returned their thanks to the Right Honourable Sir John Hopkins, Lord Mayor, for his punctual and regular discharge of the duties of that high and im- portant station ; for the politeness which he has at all times shewn to the members of the Court, and the rest of his Fellow Citizens, during the whole course of his Mayoralty ; and for his constant endeavours on all occasions to promote the welfare and prosperity of this city. The Searchers and Sealers of Leather were sworn into their office, after which the Court proceeded to the hustings, when Sir James San- derson, Knt. was sworn into the office of Mayor for the year ensuing.

At a meeting held on Tuesday at the Swan Inn at Wichnor Bridge, in the county of Staf- ford, for the purpose of taking into considera- tion an extension of the navigation from Bur- ton- upon- Trent to join the Coventry Canal at Fradley Heath, it was unanimously agreed that the same would be of great public utility ; and a sum of 23,1361. 18s. 2d. being the estimate for completing the same, a subscription was opened for the sum of 25,0001. when it was proposed, that the same should be raised by a subscription not exceeding five shares of 1 ool. to each subfcriber; but from the number of per- sons then attending, it was resolved unanimously, that each person should not subscribe for more than two of such shares, when the sum of 105,000l. and upwards was subscribed. From Ashby de la Zouch they write, that the Grand Canal is to proceed : it is meant to join the Leicester Canal to the Coventry and the Oxford. Before this is to be done, the small cuts fo necessary for the County Limeworks are to be made. The whole inland navigation, which they term the Grand Union, is very po- pular ; 420 guineas have been paid for a share lately. At the two last sales of navigation shares at Leicester, the following were disposed of at the prices affixed :— Rochdale to Bury, 30 gui- neas. Two Union, 33 guineas. Three Hamp- ton- Gay, 48 guineas. Single Derby, 10 gui- nea'. Two Leicester and Loughborough, 324 guineas. Grand Junction, 420 guineas. Set of Ellesmere, 37 guineas. A Society is now forming in Bristol for pro- moting the happiness of blind children, by in- structing them in some useful employment ; and the meeting- house in Callowhill- street is fitting up for their reception. No less than eight distressed and pitiable objects have already applied for admission. Forgeries to a considerable extent have within these few days been discovered at Edin- burgh in that branch of the Excise duties which relates to Starch, the stamp having been coun- terfeited. Several persons have been taken up on suspicion, and committed to prison ; and a very serious and strict examination into the mat- ter is now going on. The sailors belonging to North Shields have entered into a combination to have their wages raised during the winter months. This riot has the order and energy of a system. Watches are kept with regularity, pass- words are established, the street's paraded, traitors punished, and not a ship suffered to leave the harbour before notes for four guineas per run are given to the respective crews. Monday night some villains broke into the house of Mr. Barbot, lapidary, in Tryon's place, Lambeth, and stole property of different kinds, to the value of upwards of 30I. On the 1st inst. died at Orchard, in Scotland in the 82d year of his age, John Eliott, of Borth- wickbrae, Esq. On Monday morning last, the Honourable Mrs. Mackay, widow of the late Colonel Hugh Mackay, of Bighouse, died at her house in Edin burgh. A few days since died, Mrs. Knight, of Bridge- water. Extreme grief for her loss threw Mr. Knight into a fever, of which he died within three days. This young couple were married and brought to the grave in the short space of eight days. The venerable Lady Dowager Chatham, mother of the Minister, has had the misfortune to break her leg; from which accident she lies dangerously ill at her seat at Burton- Pyn- sent. Last week an accident happened at Elmstree, in the parish of Tetbury, Gloucestershire, owing to a scaffold not being made sufficiently strong : 11 workmen were on it, on the side- walls of a barn, 20 feet high, when it broke, and they all fell to the ground; only two escaped uninjured : two men were much hurt in their heads, two had ribs broken, one is likely to lose his hand, and the other four were materially injured. Lately, in a country town, was celebrated a marriage of a very singular nature. The bride was a young woman ; the bridegroom, who was not less than 90, addressed the Clergyman thus, when he was going to perform the ceremony— " Fifty years since," said he, " in obedience to the first great command to increase and multiply, I was married by your grandfather : at this time of day I expected to have had a grandson able and willing to supply my place; but I find myself again compelled to come forward in my own person, as my grandson is too much of a fine gentleman to have any regard for the inte- rests of society, and is too deeply engaged in the career of fashionable dissipation to be qualified for the discharge of so important a duty." At Worcester market, on Saturday last, up- wards of 1600 pockets of hops were weighed. Prices from 2I. 10s. to 5I. js. per iWc. At Bridgnorth Fair, on Monday last, cheese sold from 35s. to 52s. per hundred ( 120lb.) Tub butter from 10s. to us. 4d. per gawn ( 161b.); lump ditto, from 7^ d. to 7- Jd. per pound. On the following day cheese rather dropped, but butter sold much about the same. Good hops from 4I. 4s. to 5I. 5s. inferior ones very low. There were but few horses; and good ones sold well, particularly young colts of the cart kind. The fishing season this year at Newfound- land has turned out bad, on account of the great scarcity of fish. There is now a fruit- tree in full blossom, in the garden of the Rev. Mr. Jones, of Bradsey, near Evesham. There are also in the same garden, strawberries in blossom. — An apple- tree also, which was planted last Christmas in the parish of Bradsey, has blossomed and yielded fruit twice this season. THE ORIGIN OF LOTTERIES IN ENGLAND. The first we meet with was drawn A. D. 1569. " It consisted of 40000 lots, at 1 os. each lot; the prizes were plate; and the pro- fits were to go towards repairing the havens of this kingdom. It was drawn at the west door of St. Paul's, cathedral. The drawing began the 11th of January, and continued incessantly until the 6th of May following, There were then only three Lottery- Offices in London." " In the year 1712, King James, in special favour for the plantation of English colonies in Virginia, granted a Lottery to be held at the west end of St. Paul's; whereof one Tho- mas Sharplys, a tailor, of London, had the chief prize, which was 4000 crowns in fair plate." Baker's Chron. In the reign of Queen Anne, it was thought necessary to suppress Lotteries, as nuisances to the public. THEATRICAL ENTERTAINMENTS. This Evening.
