A Secretary read an address from the first divi- sion of the army of the North, commanded by Ge- neral Lamorliere; from which it appears that 60,000 men of that army have accepted the Constitution, which was proclaimed amidst a general discharge of artillery. Lamorliere added, that the attacks of posts are al- ways in favour of the French ; that since he com- manded this division, 11,000 of the enemy had been made prisoners of war," and 1230 more came over as deserters. " Such a defence," adds the General, is much better than a complete victory." Saturday, July 13. LETTER addressed to CITIZEN DUPONT, Chief of Bri- gade, . end Adjutant General of the firft division of the army of the North. Head Quarters at Cambray, July 16. " I have good news for you, my dear Dupont. I would not be too hasty in communicating it to you, till it were daily more and more confirmed by our spies, and the de- serters who come over. " The power of the leagued Kings has been dashing a- gainst the walls of Valenciennes; they may convert that unhappy city into a heap of ashes and ruins ; but they will never subdue the invincible courage of its inhabitants, and of the Republican soldiers who defend its ramparts. History does not furnish an instance of so cruel a bombard- ment as this city is doomed to suffer. For these three weeks, near 200 pieces of cannon have played upon the city, both night and day. The garrison makes sallies e- very day, which proves not less fatal to the enemy than the loss of battles. " Cobourg, finding that the fire of the fortress slacken- ed, thought it was destitute of ammunition, and attempt- ed to scale it in the night between the 5th and 6th. Tha English, the Hungarian grenidiers, and Hanoverians, were to perform the task, by means of barges laden with sdaling ladders, which were thrown into the fosses.— General Fer- rand perceivcd the enemy's design, and suffered them to approach ; but when they were preparing to throw up the scaling ladders, he assaulted them instantly by a shower of balls and case- shot, which lighted upon them in every direction. The number of those who fell victims in this rashenterprise is computed at 6000 men. I am posi- tively sure that Cobourg was determined to sacrifice 5000 men, to secure himself in the success of this assault. The assailants, thus repulsed, took flight in confusion, and were pursued into their camp. The explosion of a mine, which was blown up the same moment at the Rollcux, completed their defeat. " Since the beginning of the siege, the enemy have lost a great number of cannons, which were taken, spiked, or dismounted. A11 epidemical malady, occasioned by the putrid exhalations from the woods of Raimes and the camp of Famars, spreads desolation among the combined armies. The hospitals of Mons and Brussels are not spa- cious enough to contain their sick and wounded. ( Signed) " CHERIN, Adjutant- General." The Commissioners of the army of the north, who sent this letter, informed the Convention, that the desertion from the allies continued, and that not a day passed without the arrival of a great number of deserters at the French polls. HERAULT said, that upon a strict examination and collation of the letters lately arrived from the army of the north, it might be possible that Conde, de- prived of provisions, could have surrendered to the superiority of numbers; and that, in such a case, Valenciennes would be more seriously threatened ! LETTER from the COMMISSIONERS with the Army of the Coasts of Rochelle, assembled in a central Com. mittee. Angers, July 8. " We arrived here with the army yesterday. The soldiers suffered much from the scorching heat, but their spirits are high. Their desire of fighting the enemies of the Republic seems to promise us the happiest successes. The movement we have made in conjunction with Wes- terman, has already produced a good effect, and pre- vented the enemy's making a fresh attack upon Nantes. This city is absolutely delivered from the numberless hordes who surrounded it. The Rebels seem to have fled to their ancient dens at Chatillon, Mortagne, and Chollet.— We shall not be long to seek them there. " The army of General Cantclaux now occupies the right bank of the Loire, assists ours, and can second our operations in the most powerful manner. Cantclaux comes hither with our colleagues Merlin and Gillet. We shall fix our position, and the Generals will concert their plan of operations. " You have surely heard that Westerman, after the most considerable and most rapid successes, has been re- pulsed from Chatillon. The enemy, terrified at his bold- ness and numerous successes, attacked him in main force, and routed his little army. He purchased victory at a dear rate. This event has made a deep impression on us ; but it could not damp our courage, or lessen our hopes. This check will only afford a fresh opportunity to ouc brothers in arms, of avenging an outrage." ASSASSINATION OF MARAT. Sunday, June 14. CHABOT—" Your Committee had for a consider- able time been told, that a deep plot was to accom- pany the fete of July 14.— It was partly executed yesterday evening; and the single point now is, the effecting of that Counter Revolution in Paris on the same day that its inhabitants acquired liberty. in order to accomplish this, all the Deputies of the Mountain were to be assassinated ; for which purpose the conspirators of Caen kept up a criminal corre- spondence with their accomplices, your colleagues, who still sit in this Assembly. The day that Char- lotte Corde, the woman who struck Marat the mor- tal blow, arrived in Paris, Duperret received a courier extraordinary from Caen. Who was that courier ? That very Corde. Duperret communica- ted the dispatches to Fauchet," FAUCHET—" You lie" CHAEOT continued.- It was on this account that we yesterday demanded a decree to put seals upon the papers of two of your Members; This, terrible project led to others; for it was not suffi- cient to assassinate the Mountain only to ensure the JULY 27. 1793 TO BE SOLD, AN ENSIGNGY in the 75th REGIMENT of FOOT, at present in India Apply to Alexander Abercromby, writer to the signet HaY Wanted, ACONTRACTOR to supply the 4th REGI- ment of DRAGOONS with HAY for the Troop Horses the ensuing The quantity required will be full Two Thousand Stone per Week— to be paid for on delivery.

The Meeting taking into consideration, that Great Britain has been involved in a necessary war with France, by the un- justifiable conduit and hostile attacks of the present Rulers of that Country, they think it their duty to premote the man- ning his Majesty's Navy, and also the recruiting his Land forces; - / They therefore resolve voluntarily, to assess themselves in the sum of Three Shillings on the Hundred Pound Scots va- luation, to be levied by their Collector at the ensuing collec- tion in October next, to be applied in paying a Bounty of THREE GUINEAS to every Able Seaman, and TWO GUINEAS to every Ordinary Seaman belonging to the Stewartry, that shall enter with the Regulating Officer at Leith— and also to be applied in paying a Bounty of FIVE GUINEAS to every Able- bodied man born in the Stewar- try, who shall inlist in any of his Majesty's Old Regiments of Infantry, within the space of one year. The Meeting also resolve, that any balance which shall re- main of the money levied as above- mentioned, shall be re- served for the Relief of the WIVES and FAMILIES of such gallant Sailors and Soldiers from this district as shall fall in the service. The meeting appoint Mr Gordon of Kenmore, Mr Cop- land of Collieston, Mr Campbell of Queenshill, Mr Hannay of Bargally, Mr Bushby Maitland of Eccles, Mr Corrie of Dunrod, Mr Blair of Borgue, with such of the heritors as chuse to attend, as a Committee to manage the above funds.

Greenock, July 23. 1793. JOHN LIKLY establishment of federation, and afterwards of Roy- alty. The intriguers and the Counter Revolution- ills had already misled the Sections, and caused Ci- tizens to be deputed from Paris to Caen, Evreux, and Bourdeaux. Others ordered the printing of the scandalous manifestoes of the Federates. Your Committee ought to take vigorous measures; though all its Members were to fall under the poignard of assassins. In causing the assassination of Marat, the conspirators said the Sans Cullottes, who were of his way of thinking, will wish to revenge his death.—• They will march to Calvados; they will there meet men of a different opinion. A civil war will com- mence ; and in the midst of these troubles we will establish the Counter Revolution. What would this Counter Revolution be ? It would be the recal of the intriguers whom you have only driven away in part, for you have taken pity on Fauchet, who re- tired during the storm, and who has only returned to the Convention to intrigue afresh. These con- spirators were to revise your constitution, and leave the people destitute of laws, to waste themselves in anarchy. This was the aim of their plot. A wo- man has been the first instrument of their crimes : This woman, who has plunged a knife into Marat's bosom, seems to me to be one of those who, during the time of the Legislative Assembly, spoke to M Guadet in favour of the conspirators of Caen. This woman wrote thus to Marat last Friday:—" Your civism must make you desirous to discover confpi- racies; I have a very important one to communicate to you, and therefore beg that you will hear me at your house." She presented herself there yester- day morning ; but not seeing him, left another note conceived in these terms: " Have you received my letter ? If you have received it, I rest upon your politeness. It is enough that I am unfortunate, to claim your attention." You see, Citizens, that this female conspirator rendered justice to the civism of Marat-— of Marat, who died, as he lived, the con- stant friend of the people. Yesterday evening she again went to his house; and Marat, whose heart has ever made so many sacrifices to humanity, or dered his doors to be opened to her. She spoke a great deal to him about the conspirators, who have fled to Caen. He answered her, that they would one day lose their heads upon the scaffold. At these words she plunged this knife into his bofom. [ Cha- bot shews the inftrument.] Marat had only time to say, I am dying. His fervant entered the room and made a cry : People ran to her assistance. This new Tisiphone went out with audacity ;— she was stopped. She might have assassinated herself, but she did not. When we told her that she would lose her head upon the scaffold, she looked at us with a smile of mockery. She reckons upon the success of the traitorous plots of Caen, and doubtless hopes to escape punishment. But, Citizens, these plots will be developed; these crimes will be punished. The people of Paris are rising ; they already make their enemies tremble—( applauses)— and I dare say that before the end of this week, all the enemies of the Constitution will be arrested, and that the most guilty will have lost their heads. In the pockets of this abominable woman were found 150 livres in silver and 146 in assignats,' a letter addressed to Ma- rat, a passport delivered the 8th of April by the Municipality of Caen, her baptismal certificate, a gold watch, & c. on her neck, the sheath of the knife, and a writing in the form of an address to the French people. The extract of her certificate of baptism, dated July 28. 1768, dates, that she was torn of M. Jean Francois Corde and Charlotte Godiae, his wife. This woman went in the morning to Le- gendre's house ; but he refused to see her. She said that she could not be guilty of two murders, and that it was necessary to begin with Marat." A decree of arrest was demanded against Duper- ret. He wished to speak. The decree was obtain- ed, and he was only permitted to be heard at the bar. DUPERRET—" Last Thurfday my daughters re- ceived in my absence a packet directed to me; it contained printed papers already known in Paris, and which my colleague Barbaroux sent me from Caen with a letter, which I shall read. The bearer of the packet was the woman who has killed Marat. When I went home to dinner, the woman returned and gave me a letter from Barbaroux, who recommend- ed her to me for some private businefs. I might be silent upon this letter; but, secure in my conscience, I can dissemble nothing, and still less conceal that I join in the sentiments of my absent colleague and my department." Here DUPeRRET read the letter from Barbaroux, to the following effect : " I address to you, my dear and good friend, some interesting works, which it is necessary to distri- bute. The work written by Salle, relative to the Constitution, is that which might produce the best effect. I beg of you to remit to the Minister of the Home Department, the papers of a young lady, concerning whom you will be spoken to. The fe male citizen who is the bearer of my letter interests herself greatly in this affair. All goes on well here ; it will not be long before we shall be under the walls of Paris." DUPERRET continued—" This woman begged me to take her to the house of the Minifter for Home Af- fairs. Garat was not at home ; and upon mention- ing to his porter that I was a Deputy, he told me to call in the evening, at eight o'clock. I then asked the woman if she had the papers respecting her af- fair, and added, that my recommendation would be of little weight : She answered me, that she should not again go to the Minister's. In the course of our walk, she frequently invited me to quit the Convention, where I could not do any service to the Republic. I replied that I should remain at my post till driven from it. I have no further know ledge of Charlotte Corde, she appeared to me, in the interviews that I had with her, a woman of in trigue, occupied with some important object. She gave me her address, and took mine. This is all the conversation I had with her." Here CHABOT interrupted Duperret, by asking him whether he had not shewn Barbaroux's letter with satisfaction to several members, and particular ly to Fauchet. He answered that he had shewn it to more than thirty ; that he had given his opinion ; but that he did not think he had shewn it to Fauchet. HERAULT announced, that the Minister of the Home Department had received information from Calvados, that there was a plot to assassinate him. It seems", says he, " there is a sort of correspon- dence between this letter from Calvados, and Char- lotte Corde, and her conductor Duperret."—- Loud murmurs. DROUET read a speech, wherein he recited all the services which Marat had rendered the Republic. He lamented the deplorable death that had termi- nated the sacrifices which Marat had made to liber- ty and humanity; and concluded this eulogium, by inviting the people to honour the memory of his friend, by attending with the calm and noble atti- tude of freemen, the trial and judgement of his as- sassin Applauded. COUTHON complained, that the project of so many crimes, discovered by the flight of the con- spirators from among the Members of the Conven- tion, should be yet unpunished. In his opinion, it was impossible not to perceive the assassins in Buzot, Barbaroux, and la Salles, whose orders had so cruel- ly been executed by the woman Corde, against the most ardent friend of the people. He thought it equally difficult to acquit her of the charge of being the accomplice of Duperret, Fauchet, and other Deputies of Calvados. He moved, First, " That the Revolutionary Tribunal should hasten the judgment against the assassin of Marat ; that it should immediately proceed to the trial of Brissot, and prosecute as outlaws those Deputies who, by their flight, had deprived themselves of the protection of the laws. Secondly, ' That a decree of accusation be pas- sed against Duperret, previously convicted of being an accomplice in the above murder; and also a de- cree of arrest against Fauchet and the other mem- bers of the deputation of Calvados, until the ne cessary proofs shall justify their being sent before the Revolutionary Tribunal." After some debate, the proposition of Couthon was decreed in the following terms : " The Convention decrees, that Duperret be put in a state of accusation, as standing previously convicted of being an accomplice in the murder of Marat, and also in the conspiracy raised in the de- partments of Calvados and Rhone, against the li- berty and indivisibilitv of the Republic ; and the Revolutionary Tribunal is immediately to try the assassin of Marat and all her accomplices. " The Convention also decrees, that Fauchet, one of its members, be put in a state of arrest in the prison of the Abbey." DANTON—" I demand that Fauchet, this deserter from the cause of liberty, may be heard. His speech may perhaps give us reason to put him in a state of accusation." FAUCHET—" Never had royalty and federation more formidable enemies, than in myself. Let all my papers be searched ; I am confident that not the least proof of factious designs shall be found; against me. With respect to the assassin of Marat, how is it possible to accuse me of being her accom plice ? She is an utter stranger to me ; and if it were true that I had seen the dispatches from Bar baroux, this would prove nothing against me, be cause they are in no kind of relation with her. With respect to what is going forwards in the department of Calvados, I assert, that since the rebellion I ne- ver have written a letter to that department, nor re- ceived any from thence; in short, I have always shewed the greatest submission to the decrees of the Convention. But another object lies still heavier on my heart. I am accused of having secretly sub- scribed to the measure proposed by the Committee of Public Safety on the famous day of the 31st of May. So far from this, I. thought to do a generous act by offering to suspend myself from my functions. The Convention having not approved the project of the Committee, I have been every day in my place ; this was my duty. I abhor all effusion of blood. I look with horror upon the war against the patriots, and I would give my life for my greatest enemy ; this is my creed." The drum announced the arrival of the people of Paris, who came to testify their gratitude for the accomplishment and acceptance of the constitution. Headed by the Constituted Authorities of the de- partment, they filed off with a banner, representing emblems of the libeity and unity of the people of Paris. BILLAUD VARENNES, DURTYCOYTE, and PRIEUR, called to recollection the services rendered to the cause of liberty by the citizens and the present mu- nicipality of Paris ; and the Convention decreed, That since the year 1789, the city of Paris had never ceased to deserve well of their country." ,„ A civic hymn was chaunted, and the sitting broke j up under continual acclamations, vive la Repubiique, { une & indivisible ! . j Monday, July 15. CHABOT—" It has appeared doubtful whether Fauchet be an accomplice in the murder of Marat; but I declare, and am ready to prove, that he has brought with him the assassin into this hall, and pro- cured her a place in the galleries." " Fauchet," added COUTHON, " is an abominable priest, who preaching an Agrarian law, .'. as ordered to be arrested in Calvados, and was called into the Legislative Assembly, because he affected love for his native country. He will soon pass over from the state of arrest to that of accusation. With re- gard to Duperret, I shall easily prove that he is an accomplice in the murder of Marat. I beg leave to recall to your recollection an event, says Couthon, which evinces this criminal connexion. Remember that day when Duperret, rushing upon the Mountain, and drawing his sword, threatened to thrust it into Marat's heart; and however ( addressing the Mem- bers on the right) you treat us as sanguinary ty- rants, robbers, and partizans of the Agrarian law, a Gentleman seated among you has dared to say to us—" Bring to that wretch Couthon a cup of blood to refresh himself with." Others have proposed ' to place in the midst of the Mountain a large ves. sel of blood, to quench our thirst. We knew then these atrocious fellows; but deeds now proclaim what they are. France knows them, and has al- ready judged between them and us." LAVASSeUR—" The Right Side desired a civil war; for the Members of that side rejoiced at the reading of a decree calculated to provoke it. Ye wretches ( addressing himself to them), you desire a civil war? I wish you were condemned, after a battle, to collect the bloody remnants of the unfortunate defenders of their country.— You desire a civil war! I wish you were condemned to survey the dreadful field of battle, to hear the dying groans of the wounded, and to fee the convulsions and- agonies of despair. But we, Citizens, strong in the opinion of the people and the justice of our cause, have as yet strenuoufly defended the rights entrusted to our care; let us with steadiness and intrepidity proceed in our glo- rious task, and let the dagger of our assassins reach us at the end of our legislative career— we shall then have lived long enough !"— Applauded. The Convention decreed, that it would hear the Members who should have any new facts to allege against the imprisoned Members. PARIS— July 15. The Jacobins, on hearing of the death of Marat, immediately assembled. Nothing was determined on that evening; but yederday Bentabole rose, and demanded that the honours of the Pantheon should be granted to this Friend of the People. M. Condorcet has escaped into the Departments, having had previous notice of the intention of the Convention to put him under arrest. A Deputy to the National Convention, who was imprisoned by the Counter- revolutionists at Lyons, as an hostage to the accused Deputies, has hung himself, in a fit of despair, by his garters. He has left a will, which throws a good deal of light on se- veral of the National Deputies. Nine persons have been condemned and executed for having attempted to take away the life of Leo nard Bourdon, at Orleans, on the 15th of March.— Their names were, Benoit Couet, J. Baptist Quesnel, John Henry Gellet, James de la Salle, Adrian Baissort, Ch. Philip Nonneville, Nicholas Jacquet, and J. Baptist Poussot, Charles Tallin. After the President had communicated to the accufed the declaration of the Jury, they fell on their knees, declaring, with tears and shrieks, that they had been deceived, and were innocent! This moving spectacle prevented the Judges from pronouncing sentence, which was not done till the 12th inst. at four o'clock in the afternoon.— They were executed yesterday at half- past two o'clock in the afternoon, in the Square de la Revolution. The greatest part of the spectators murmured aloud, cursing both the Convention and the Re- volutionary Tribunal. THE ROYAL FAMILY. The treatment of these victims of usurpation is by all accounts less rigorous than formerly. Th separation of the DAUPHIN from the QUEEN is the only circumstance of cruelty that has been added to the past. The Commissioners on duty in the Temple are no longer changed, and continue to wait on the Royal Captives. They treat them with respectful gentleness. They are not only allowed to walk about, but even their table has been bettered. TISON, the woman who waited on the QUEEN, has turned lunatic. She was immediately taken out of the Tower, put into a separate room, and a nurse assigned to her. This nurse was bound by an oath not to reveal any thing of what TISON might say in her fits of phrenzy. The DAUPHIN is now allowed to play in the gar den with his new keeper ; he may also speak to the sentinels— an indulgence which was never granted before.

OFFICIAL ACCOUNT OF THE OPERATIONS OF THE COMBINED ARMIES BEFORE VALENCIENNES. Head Quarters General at Herin, July 13. The French garrison at Conde marched out this morning, having General CHANCEL at their head, who was formerly Governor. Arrived near Lecocq, they grounded their arms as prisoners of war, and were conducted by an escort to Peruwez. At the same time the Austrian garrison entered the town, with martial music, and with all possible order. Last night three dismounting batteries were erect ed, perfected, and furnished with artillery, in the third parallel before Valenciennes. Two platforms were at the same time constructed ; and the works which had been damaged by the fire from the place were repaired. A great number of fascines and ga- bions were provided for the use of this parallel. Both night and day the enemy continued a ter- rible fire from their heavy artillery, and threw a great number of bombs; but these did us little damage, while the fire from our first and second pa- rallels reduced theirs in many places to silence. Our howitzers and mortars of the third parallel in- commoded the enemy by grenades and stones, pre- vented them from repairing their ruined works, and drove the workmen from the covered- way. Our artillery is so well directed, that the enemy cannot remain long at the same battery, and are obliged to scamper frequently from one to another. Du- ring the last twenty- four hours, we had eight killed and twenty- four wounded. July 14.— The two platforms were this night finished, the howitzers brought to them, and two new dismounting batteries erected.— The enemy continued a fire of musquetry from the covered- way till day break ; and then commenced, with much briskness, the fire of their artillery. We return- ed it with success. We lost only one man these twenty- four hours, but we had twenty- four wound- ed. We imagine the enemy has lost many more than us for several days past, if we may judge from the effect of our mortars, of our howitzers, and of our fire a- ricochet upon the workmen in the cover-* ed- way. — General OTTO, commanding the advanced posts, attacked this morning at day- light, the enemy's piquets at Avesne- le- sec and Lieu St Amand, in the forest near Neuville, upon the Scheldt, and in the _ wood near Noyelle, consisting of 300 infantry and 100 cavalry. Colonel QUIETOOSEY, of the regi- ment Of Barco, at the head of a division of his re- giment, and of three companies of Tyrolean chas- seurs, conducted the attack. Our attack was so brisk, that the enemy abandoned their different posts with the greatest precipitation, without at- * tempting to defend themselves. Our hussars pur- sued the fugitives as far as the small fortified camp near Ordaing, and to the redoubt on the bridge near Bouchain. They put 1oo to the sword, and took 15 prisoners. } At the same time, ESTERHAZY, Colonel of lit1-** sars, fent many patroles by Marq towards Fechain.""* One of them, consisting of 15 hussars, commanded by Lieutenant BENIZKY, fell upon a patrole of the enemy, consisting of 80 men, and attacked them with so much bravery, that they fled, after many of them had been killed, and four made prisoners. To favour the expedition which General OTTO had projected, his Highness Major- General Prince de COBOURG advanced with a detachment of dra- goons to the heights of Saulzoir, situated upon La Selle, a rivulet which falls into the Scheldt. His advanced guard met an enemy's patrole of 200 men, which were put to flight, after some of them were killed. All these attacks of the advanced pods on- ly cost us three killed and five wounded, which ap- pears incredible, but it was owing to the quick re- treat of the enemy. July 15.— The works were continued with un- abated vigour, but no event of any consequence took place. In the course of this day we had four killed and thirty wounded. July 16.— A powder magazine belonging to the enemy, situated on the horn work, was - blown up this day in confequence of our fire. The works were continued with ardour. The enemy fire very little in the night: We therefore take advantake of that circumstance to repair the damage done to our works during the day. This day we had two killed and 34 wounded. The following is the position of the Combined Army:— The Walloons extend from the inundation of the Lower Scheldt to near Herin. At the bot- tom of Mount Anzin is a battery directed against the gate of the city, to prevent the besieged from, making a sortie on that side. The Hanoverians occupy from that side to Fontenelle, where begin two dykes of communication, which cross the inunda tion to the foot of Mount Ouy : They are so broad as to admit a waggon, and convoys come by the one and return by the other. The English extend from the inundation to Marli and Sultain. On the top of Mount Ouy is a battery of ten pieces of cannon, which play upon the right branch of the horn- work. The Austrians are posted from Marli to St Sauve. The first parallel extends between the road to Ba- vay and that to Mons: It is from twelve to thirteen hundred toises in length, and nearly 300 from the place. The second parallel is at the distance of only 150 toises; and the third at the distance of 36. Be- tween St Sauve and Onaing is the park of artillery, with the necessary articles for carrying on the siege; such as fascines, gabions, See. Sec. A large dyke of communication, on which two carriages may pass abreast, also traverses the inundation towards Con- de. The head quarters general of his Serene High- ness the Prince of COBOURG are at Herin ; those of his Royal Highness the Duke of YORK at Estreux; and those of General FERRARIS at Onaing. The army of observation, under the command of Gene- ral CLAIRFAYT, extends from Wavrechin, and is covered by the wood of Vicogne. At the bottom of the heights of Famars is a small army, with some batteries; and another under the command of M. de BELLEGARDE, is established on the road to Ones- SIEGE OF MENTZ. July 11.— The village of Costheim is still occu- pied by the Prussians, Hessians, and Saxons. The loss of the Allies in taking that post amounted to 12 killed and 40 wounded, among whom were five officers. The working on the entrenchments is carried on with great activity. A part of the covered way, which the French had constructed from Costheim to Cassel, is already filled up. CONDE, July 18. The day before yesterday, the white flag was dis- played on the walls of Valenciennes j the cannon- ade ceased, and a capitulation became the general talk in the camp. What occasioned this event is as follows: General CUSTINE requested permission of his Serene Highness the PRINCE of COBOURG, to let a pregnant lady, on the point of being delivered, quit Valenciennes, she being a person in whom he was interested. The request was granted, and the Comman- dant of Valenciennes only intended, by holding the white flag, to make the cannonade cease, that no- thing might happen to the lady. She has been conducted hither, and is the more narrowly guarded, as there are no apparent symp- toms of pregnancy to be discovered. STATE PAPER. ANSWER of his MAJESTY the KING of POLAND to the notes delivered by the RUSSIAN and PRUSSIAN MINI- STERS, on the 24th of June. " I do declare, in the presence of the States in Diet assembled, that whereas I acceded to the Ge- neral Confederation of Targowitz, established un- der the protection of her IMPERIAL MAJESTY of all the RUSSIAS, I did it with the assurance that the territories of the Republic would be preserved en- tire. " This was the only prospect which guided my steps ; and it is my duty to inform of this the State* in Diet assembled, who, I hope, participate in my opinion respecting the integral preservation of the Domains of the Republic. " I can foresee, that we are obliged to give a very select answer, penned in measured expressions, to the notes received. " But all our pretensions only consist, that our territories be altered to us; and, I hope, that their / Imperial and Royal Prussian Majesties will easily find, that our nation has not given the smallest oc- casion for that dismemberment which the two Courts have judged to be expedient. ( Signed) " STANISLAUS AUGUSTUS." London, July 24. Last night, at half part eight o'clock, Messrs HESLOPE and STEACY arrived at the Secretary of State's Office, with letters from the Duke of YORK, at the camp before Valenciennes, dated July 19; ihey contain nothing of importance. With the official bulletins published at Brussels, cf the proceedings of the combined armies, and the counter statements given in to the French Conven- tion before them, our readers must exercise their own penetration to come at the truth ; meanwhile we are enabled, as some assistance, to exhibit the substance of private correspondence, which may serve as a sort of regulator between the printed ac- counts of Brussels, and those of Paris. Certain it is, that several officers of the first a- bilities have expressed much doubt respecting the ultimate issue of the siege of Valenciennes; and it is equally certain, that as the besiegers approach, the resistance of the besieged increases in more than an equal proportion ; at the same time this we can safely assert, that the narratives of slaughter read before the Convention are not true. On inspecting the works of Conde, those employ- ed in the siege of Valenciennes have been led to rea- son on the probability of their speedy success against a place of strength so superior, and which occasion ally has received, and it is presumcd, continues to receive succours of provision.— In a word, it has been candidly said, that a month longer ought to be in all reason allowed before a final decision is given whether this town shall fall or not. A messenger also arrived last night from the Earl of YARMOUTH, who is at the head- quarters of the KING of PRUSSIA at Marienborn. The operations of the siege were pushed on with vigour. His Prus- sian Majesty seems eager to make up for the time that has been lost, and, by his personal example, gives the most animating incentives to courage and exertion. His Majesty daily visits the trenches in person. What other dispatches the messenger has brought from Lord Yarmouth, we have not been informed ; it is strongly surmised, that the business of his Lord ship with the King of Prussia includes other matter than what immediately relates to the war with France Our readers will recollect, that soon after the period of the first interference of the King of Prus- sia and the Empress of Russia in the affairs of Po- land, it was mentioned a representation had been made on the part of Great Britain of the in justice of such an- interference. It is said that the Cabinet of this country perse- veres in declaring its hostility to the partition of Po- land, and that the Earl of Yarmouth has instructions to express this disposition to the Court of Berlin. We give this, however, but as a rumour. Lord GEORGE CONWAY, who is returned from the Prussian army before Mayence, brings accounts that it is the design of the KING, as soon as he shall re- duce the place, to take possession of it in his own name ; the only means that is left him of holding in his hand a check against the EMPEROR, and by which it is possible that he may yet save himfelf from the plot supposed to be forming at Petersburgh against his already diminished power. Yesterday dispatches were received at the Secre- tary of State's Office, from Sir MORTON EDEN, K. B his Majesty's Envoy at the Court of Berlin. Yesterday difpatches were received at the Secre tary of State's Office, from Lord St HELEN'S, at Madrid, which came over in a packet boat from Corunna. It seems the French prove themselves excellent marksmen : A Dutch paper says, " It is now the fourth time since the beginning of the siege of Va lenctennes, that our magazines of powder and bombs within the lines have been set on fire by the French. On a late occasion of this kind a number of lives were lost. It adds, that on the 18th the advanced posts of General CLAIRFAYT'S army were attacked by a considerable body of French from Manbeuge, and obliged to retreat in diforder. Upon which va- rious detachments of chasseurs and hussars were as- sembled to support the flying Austrians, when a very obstinate and bloody conflict ensued, in which our people being the least in number, notwithstanding the most valourous efforts, were obliged to retire, leaving a number of dead, and about 30 prisoners The garrison of Conde, it is said, are ordered to Antwerp." The Combined Camps, from their long position before Valenciennes, are environed with traders and suttlers, who daily arrive from Holland, or Germa ny, but chiefly from the former country. Gin is accordingly the most plentiful liquor; it is sold for little more than 6d. a quart. Of all the conquests made by the French at the close of the last campaign, Mentz alone has been seriously useful to them. Before this place the King of PRUSSIA, and an army of, perhaps, fifty thousand men, have been occupied for four months, in which time all the fortresses on the eaftern frontier of France might otherwise have been carried. It will now doubtless be taken soon ; but the campaign is too far advanced to expect that any impression can be made by the Prussian army upon the French frontier itself. The report of Prince Joseph of Austria ( the Em- peror's brother) being taken prisoner by the French, has had no other foundation than his being surprised on a reconnoitring party, and having narrowly made his escape. Saumur, which the French Royalists and Repu- blicans have been lately contending for, is a place of some interest to many families, now English, whose ancestors had their education there, before the revocation of the edict of Nantz. The father of Jortin took a degree there, the certificate of which is now in the possession of his descendents The surrender of Conde was announced at Brus- sels, with all the customary circumstances of Impe- rial pomp ; a nobleman being the messenger of the intelligence, and twelve postillions, blowing their horns, the precursors of his journey. Things have frequently' been spoken of as proaching to a crisis at Paris ; but surely the last formidable event, the assassination of MARAT, points to something.— It is with the utmost impatience we wait further accounts from the French capital. If we may believe the Conventional reports in any thing, the lately framed constitution has been well received in the departments; though be it ob- served, the approbation thus published is simply that which is brought to the bar of the Convention by deputations, which, perhaps, as little speak the sense of the quarter from which they are said to come, as we can suppose of thofe which affect to I bring congratulations from the re- conquered terri- tories of Liege and Jemappe. By Paris papers of the 18th we learn, that on the 16 th the remains of MARAT were interred with great funeral pomp. The Sections assisted at the cere- mony, and an immense concourse of people attended. On the 17th, the woman who assassinated him was tried. She was condemned, and was to suffer death the same evening. The death of MARAT, it is at least presumed, will bring the people of Paris to avow their sentiments on this subject.— The sanguinary execu- tions of which he was the cause, have already con- siderably wrought upon their sentiments; whether his own fall will affect their feeling in an equal de- gree, a short time will determine. MARAT was the first member returned to the pre- sent French Convention, by the department of Pa- ris, which may now search in vain for his equal. His death will serve his faction, by rendering their opponents suspected ; by affording a pretence of se verities against the latter ; and by exciting attach- ment to the cause, for which, it will be said, a mar- tyr has suffered. ROBESPIERRE, his closest associate, has pointed out the use, which may be made of his death. When it was proposed in the Jacobin Club to bury him in the Pantheon, " Rather," said the surviving ally, " let us make'a hecatomb to his memory, with the bodies of his enemies." The admirers of MARAT have caused a medal to be struck to his honour.— Around his portrait is the following inscription : MARAT AMI DU PEUPLE ; VAIN- QUEUER DE L'ARISTOCRATIE.— On the reverse is a re- presentation of DIOGENES, whose head is covered with a bonnet rouge.— In one hand he holds a lant- horn, and with the other he assists MARAT to ascend from his hiding place, by means of a trap- door.- The legend consists of the following dialogue :- DIOGENES. " Camarade Sans Culottes! je t'ai cherche long tens."— MARAT. " Ou persecutoit la Verite, je n'avois point d'autre asyle." EVENING COURANT. The Sophia, Smith, is arrived at Greenock, from Anguilla, in 37 days. The fleet sailed three days be- fore him, and the master says, there was certain advice that the Island of Martinique had wholly sur- rendered to Admiral GARDNER, except fort Bour- bon. On Monday afternoon Lord HOWE'S fleet anchored in Torbay— This was owing to the wind having got round to the S. W. and being attended with hazy weather. Lord HOOD reached Gibraltar, with the division of the fleet under his command, on the 20th ult. He was joined by the division that had put into Ca- diz on the 23d, and immediately proceeded up the Mediterranean. He was off Alicant on the 8th inft.— Part of his van had even got up as high as Malaga. Admiral Sir JOHN LAfOREY is arrived from the West India station in the Trusty of 50 guns. He left Antigua on the 22d or 23d of June ; he brings intelligence that the commercial fleet, consisting of about 100 sail, had sailed on the 15th of June from St Kitt's, and therefore they may be expected in 10 or 14 days. The letters received yesterday from gentlemen on board his ship, state the important fact, that Admi- ral GARDNER, in consequence of the advices he had received of quarrels in Martinique, had determined to make a descent, and had accordingly landed a- bout 3000 men, collected from all the islands; but though the parties ran high before his appearance, he found that a national enemy had so far united them all, as to make it hopeless for him to take the island by a coup de main, and he had reimbarked the troops.— These particulars the Trusty learned from ips that she met at sea. They say the general opinion in our islands was, that if any proper expedient had been used in fit- ting out an armament for those seas, the islands of Guadaloupe and Martinique must have fallen ; but the time was now past. The first tidings of a rup- ture received in Jamaica came to them by accident from St Domingo ; and to the date of the latest ac- counts from that island, a single cutter, frigate, or other ship of war, had not even touched there, and they had received no advices from Government whatever, either for caution or defence. The Trusty brings an account of the death of Governor WOODBY. Yesterday the Duchess of GORDON gave a grand dinner to a very numerous party of the Nobility, at her house in St James's Square. Accounts just arrived from Mitchellstown ( about 22 miles from Cork), state, that a mob had assem- bled, and had wholly destroyed Lord KINGSBOROUG'S house, and an extensive cotton manufactory belong ing to Mr SADLIER, and were proceeding to further outrages. A young gentleman very much embarrassed in his circumstances, and in hourly apprehension of a visit from the bailiffs, was last summer so disgusted with his situation, as to form the desperate resolu- tion of committing suicide. Having communicated this intention to a friend, the latter, who knew his determined spirit, was alarmed lest he should carry the design into execution ; and was fortunate enough, with some little trouble, to divert it. He repre- sented to him, that a war was then raging on the Continent, where, by entering as a volunteer, some glorious exploit might reconcile him to life ; or where he might honourably terminate it in the ranks of the enemy. He joined the army of Dumourier, and fought with such prodigal valour at the battle of Jemappe, as to attract the notice of that all- ob- serving General, who rapidly promoted him to the rank of Colonel. Pleased with his situation, and retained by a sense of honour, he did not suffer gratitude to his patron to overcome that fidelity which he thought due to the French nation ; and he still remains in the ser- vice of the Republic.

MONTAGUE set off from Walker's Hotel for Buchanan House. The Lords of the Admiralty have ordered his Majesty's ship Daphne, and sloop Martin, to pro- ceed with all possible expedition, for the protection of the White Herring Fishery on the west coast of Scotland. Duncan Clark and James Mackay are served with indictments to stand trial before the High Court of Judiciary, accused of being guilty of the robbery lately committed on the South Bridge. Letters from all parts of the kingdom state, that there never were finer prospects of a rich and plen- tiful harvest than at present. Thursday arrived the Eaft Lothian of Dunbar from Greenland, with three fish, 130 butts blubber; and the Endeavour, with four fish, and IJO butts; none of the fish are under ten feet bone. The Government of Sweden has published an in strument to quiet the minds of the people upon the situation of the country ; assuring them that the kingdom is upon the best terms with foreign powers; that the late King's debts are paid, and that the ex- pences of the Court are greatly reduced ; that no new contributions will be levied ; and it concludes with assuring the nation that there will be no Assem- bly of the States, during the minority of the present King ; as such a measure would be diametrically op posite to the will of the late Monarch. A letter from Manchester, dated July 20, says: " In our parts, several additional hundred acres of land are this year employed in the growth of pota toes; the planters of which expect their labours to be well rewarded.— In dry seasons these roots do not, in general,' attain a large size ; but that cir- cumstance is amply compensated by their great in crease in number, and their not being nearly To liable to decay, when laid in store for winter and spring use, as those produced in dripping seasons Our demand for potatoes, for the supply of the Lon- don and other markets, has for several years been 011 the increase ; and this may reasonably be deem- ed the result of a most profitable practice, which this part of the country, had the credit of originally introducing, namely, that of the winter- foddering horned cattle with them.— Milch cows, fed with po- tatoes, yield abundance of milk, and the butter made of it is of excellent flavour." A correspondent from Holy Island writes, that the cod fishing has this year been very successful, and that haddocs have been very plenty. They have also caught a great number of skait, one of which meafured 7 feet 3 inches from the nose to the extremity of the tail, and 5 feet 3 inches in breadth, the liver of which yielded 15 English pints of oil. Turbot is so plenty as to fell at id. per pound. What a blessing for the poor when butcher meat and meal is so dear! On Monday 15th inst. a fhepherd, named Tho- mas Kemp, was killed with lightning not very far from his house, a solitary cot called Scarlaw, to the southwest of CranshaWS, Berwickfhire. He has left a widow and four children to deplore his unhappy fate. His poor wife thinking it rather behind his usual time of returning home, went out to seek him, when she found him killed, together with two dogs, just beside him. At Hull, on Monday se'ennight, there was a great deal of thunder and lightning, and the heat was ex- cessive.— A horse was killed in a close adjoining the Humber bank by the lightning. Same day there was a terrible storm of thunder, lightning, and hail, at Chapel- en- le- Frith, near Sheffield, which broke some windows, and did con- siderable damage in the open fields. Some of the hailstones measured upwards of four inches in cir cumference. At Newark, the house of Mr Atkinson, of Girton, was entirely confumed, with a large quantity of cheese, and the furniture. The lightning caught the thatch soon after the family had retired to rest, and the fire raged so furiously, that they had only time just sufficient to save their lives. On Friday last, as Mr Wm. Dunning, of Throw- leigh, near Exeter, was going to his field, about five o'clock in the after noon, for a cart- load of hay, with one horfe, and a girl about ten years of age', both himself and the horse were fuddenly struck dead by lightning; the girl was lying upon her face and hands in the carl at the time, from whence she was thrown out, and very much hurt, but is now in a fair way of recovery. Mr Dunning has left only one son, who came into the field a few minutes after, and was witness to the above melancholy fact. A few days fince, a man employed in loading a sledge with hay, at Throwly, Devonshire, was, with his horse, struck dead by lightning— his hat and wig were much torn, but no visible injury either 0n his head or body.

This ought to be a caution to all swimmers, as they have several times been discovered in many parts of the Frith. Some days ago there was found about three miles from the town of Ayr, in an old middenstead, a great many ounces ( probably from twenty to thirty) of the silver coinage of Mary Queen of Scots, consist- ing of the Testoons and the half Testoons of Mary, Francis, and Mary; including the years 1555 and 1562, and a great many of the Billon piece ., Jam non svnt dvo sed vna caro.. the years 1558, 1559 — They were all contained in an earthen pot, which. a cow' accidentally broke with her foot as she was passing over. Among some ounces which a gentle- man of Glasgow has got, there is the rare and beau- tiful Testoon, with Mary's head, ' 1562. They are all in the highest preservation, and must have been early deposited, as none of them bears the Thistle stamp, which was impressed upon the silver coinage the latter part of her reign, and upon some of the coins of James VI. by which means the current va- lue was increased. Some other of the coins have the following mottos:— Cor hvmile delicie Dni.— In virtvte tva libera me.— Fecit utraqve vnum.— Vicit leo de tribv jvda.— Jam non svnt duo sed una caro.— Salvum fac populum tuvm Domine. Cure for tainted meat, by a gentleman at Cobham. — Having met with a piece of salted beef that stunk abominably, I ordered it to be washed in cold water, and afterwards with strong cold camomile tea ; this done, it was sprinkled with salt, and the next day boiled for dinner : I had several friends to dine with The meat was not the least tainted, but per- fectly good; my company praised it; and when I told them what had happened, would not. believe me. I immediately communicated the circumstance to the Society of Arts and Sciences, and received their thanks.

Fo the PRINTER of the ' EDINBURGH EVENING COURANT. SIR, NoTWITHSTANDING the late stagnation of trade, money is not wanting in the country— The public funds keep up— land, sells at an exorbitant rate— the necessaries of life do not fall in price, and luxuries are as much in demand as ever. It is solely the want of confidence that at present distresses the mercantile world. The late bankruptcies were owing to common causes, and not by any means to the war, as has been alleged. The manufac- turers, by entering into schemes greatly above their capital, overstock the market; and their goods lying on hand, they are obliged to raise money on what is called accommodation paper— This the Banks and monied men find it necessary to check as soon as discovered ; the bubble then breaks, and ruin en- sues to all concerned.— It is absurd to say that the cotton Trade cannot, be overdone— Fashion creates the demand, and that depends on the whim of the Ladies. Not long ago the great demand was for silk gauze ; no Lady would then wear muslin,, and now a waiting- maid will not wear gauze. Prior to the revolution, France was the great market for our cotton manufactures, but since that period our exports have gradually decreased, not on account of the war, but on account of that distrust which naturally falls on a people among whom property is but ill secured ; and before matters can be settled in that distracted country, fashion may change, and something else take the place of muslins. The cause of the failures in the capital perhaps may be traced to the misfortunes that befel the distillers some years ago, most of those who have now stopped having been unable ever to ex rie vte themselves from the difficulties in which they were then involved. There is something in the distillery not easily understood. Few men in that trade have made fortunes, and yet Government have taxed it twice as much as formerly— to check, it i-- said, the too great rise of spirits. In practice, however, it is found that the more taxes you lay on, the greater is the consumption— Spirits must be got at any price, although one bad effect; of the new law seems to be, that by it the poorer people are driven to the dram shop, in place of drinking at home— Powder and pomatum, before they were taxed, were in no de- mand— Wheel- carriages have increased in the pro- portion of ten to one; and every other article, in proportion as it advances in price, seems to be the more eagerly sought after.

Some very slight and imperfect sketches having been al- ready given to assist the imagination of readers, during this military period, the following are thrown together, with a view to give a more clear conception of the principal means used, both in defensive and offensive tactics : Glacis the extreme outer- face of the works of a fortified place, presenting itself towards the enemy : It is composed of earth, and gradually slopes from the parapet of the co- vert way towards the level country. Covert, or Covered Way, is a space of ground funk within the glacis, to a level with the outer embankment of the ditch, and of which the Glacis, of course, forms the breast work. The covert way is from 18 to 20 feet wide, sometimes more and sometimes less, according to the magnitude of the whole Works. The Fosse, or Ditch, is next within this, towards the town, and is of such depth and width as circumstances may render necessary ; this intended to be occasionally filled with water. Scarp and Counter Scarp, the two embankments of this ditch ; the inner and the outer. Rampart, the strong mound of earth which constitutes the grand wall of defence ; it is immediately within the ditch its outer face rising from the Scarp— the earth taken out ot the ditch furnishes materials for its construction ; it does not rise any great height above the slope of the glacis, but is ot a very great thickness, perhaps 60 or 80 feet. The Curtain— the strait facing to the Rampart, which con- nects one bastion with another. Bastions are strong projections from the Rampart, making ' indeed parts of it— they usually present towards the field a sharp angle, with two faces; and two flanks towards the town ; the flanks connecting with the Curtain.— From the nature of this construction the Rampart here acquires a supe- rior solidity. Parapet— the breast work raised in the front of the Ram- parts, Bastions, & c. formed of earth not faced with bricks or stones, to prevent splinters injuring the men who are im- mediately stationed behind it; it is sometimes 20 feet thick, the height of a man towards the town, but sloping outwards, . to give an opportunity of firing down the glacis upon the advancing enemy. Embrasures— the apertures in the parapet through which the cannon are pointed. These are the ordinary outer guards of a fortified place; and are in themselves, when provided with artillery and troops, most formidable. Within all these is situated the town, pro- vided with bomb proof places of retreat. And lastly, the Citadel, which is in itself a strong fort, or complete piece of fortification, made up of all the concomitant parts above- mentioned. It is usually erected in the most eminent situa- tion of a town, but sometimes at a small diftance out of it, so, however, as to have the sole command of it. Over and above these ordinary or regular means of de- fence, besiegers have freqent recourse to extraordinary or ir- regular ones, as approaching danger may dictate. Some of these are called counter approaches. A Counter Guard is a triangular work placed beyond the ditch, made of raised earth, situated so as to resist and weaken the attack Upon a bastion, & c. of this nature is a Half Moon or Lunette, a Horn Work, & c.— These are likewise very of- ten offensive to the besiegers. Counter Approaches is a term sometimes applied to trenches advancing so forward as actually to meet the besiegers lines of attack. . Palisade is a firm row of piles driven into the earth, in f- ich places of approach as are liable to be carried by assault — they are usually so close together as only to admit the muzzle of a musquet. A Mine is as much in use by the besieged as the besiegers; it is a passage dug underground through which a train is con- veyed to a Chamber, where the means of violent explosion are lodged, for the purpofe of blowing up every thing near it. The further these extend, the more liable are they to be 111- terupted by similar works of the enemy, and their end de- feated. Trenchcs— are cut in the ground, first at a distance from a^ town, within reach of cannon shot; these are dug in lines," following the angular inclination of the walls of the place. They are usually about fix feet deep, and as many wide ; the earth which is taken out of them forms a parapet. Parallels.— Trenches are so called, advancing, r. s they do, parallel with the works of the enemy, and with each other; they are made to approach upon a besieged place by digging smaller lines, or trenches of communication. A Sap— is such a work of communication running under ground, or covered in with faggots and earth, as it advances, for the greater security of the workmen. Opening the Trenches— is simply commencing the work. Mounting the Trenches— is going upon actual duty in them. Batteries.— This is a very familiar term, but not always correctly understood.— They are such parts of the lines as are more eminently situated for tbe purposes of attack, and where cannon are planted for that purpose ; these are con- nected with each other by the trenches : They arc of differ- ent kinds— Cross Batteries, for instance, are so constructed, as to batter the same part from different situations, thus the more effectually weakening it.— Joint Batteries, on the con- trary, play in one direction. Gabions— are rude baskets of earth, answering, as they are arranged in a line, the purpose of a breast- work on a battery, where a regular parapet of earth is not to be pro- cured. Redoubts— are very strong works, raised chiefly a. the angles of the lines, to defend them from the sallies of the e- j nemy : They have the appearance of little forts, with a small fosse, & c. Here are frequently stationed corps de garde, or bodies of men, whose office it is to prevent a surprize. A Gallery is generally a covered passage, formed of timber, serving for'the means of crossng a ditch, & c. it is also carried on sometimes under ground, constructed of the same mate- rials. Fascines— are a kind of faggcts, used to throw into ditches, with a mixture of earth, by which a passage is secured with confiderable facility. A Breach needs little explanation ; it is an opening made in any part of the works of the besieged place ; it is accom- plished ufually by battery, but sometimes in the outer works by mine. Escalade— the mode of taking a place, by surprise, with the assistance of ladders, when no practicable breach has been made. In either case, if a town or fort be entered for- cibly, the place is said to be taken by storm, 111 which case the garrison experiences little mercy. Resistance at this late period is seldom of any other avail to the besieged, than as it may go to sell their lives dear. A Flag— A Trumpet— These are metaphorical terms, ap- plied to a proposal made ; or the party who makes it, for a temporary suspension of hostilities, when a conversation is demanded, or terms are to be offered— in use, both by the besiegers and the besieged. A Sortie— another word for Sally. 1 Spiking Cannon— Nailing up the touch- hole, so as to render them useless. Lines of Countervallation— a sort of intrenchment thrown up for the simple purpose of shutting in the besieged, pre- venting sorties, & c. Blockade— A cessation or hoslile attack on the- part of the besieger.-, the simple object of which is to starve the place into terms of surrender. Raising a Siege, Capitulation, toe.— are terms too familiar to need explanation. HIGH WATER AT LEITH roa TAT- ENSUING WEEK. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. BANKRUPTS.

LAND IN AMERICA. / To be SOLD, TWO THOUSAND ACRES of VALUABLE WOOD- I. AND upon the Bank of the North- east Branch of the SUSQUEHANNAH RIVER, in the State of PENN- SYLVANIA in America. ^ There is a ferry with a landing, and a road that goes thro' a part of the land, with one or more streams capable of turn- ing grist or saw mills, as will be seen by a map of the land afterwards referred to. The waters of the Susquehannah op- posite the land are sufficiently deep for large vessels ; and as the land is stocked with timber for planks staves and shingles & c. in constant demand, the sale of them will amply pay for the clearing tbe ground. The low land on the river side is as good for wheat or meadow as any in the State, and the up- lands for corn or pa- sturage. There are now cutting navigable canals from the Susquehannah to the Delaware, and from that river to Schuil- kill, nigh Philadelphia, which will increase the value of the back- land. The taxes on land and the necessaries of life are so light as not to be felt by the poorelt in this State. It is necessary for the purchaser ' to know, that an Alien cannot hold land if a non- resident; but, the hour be or she arrives in America, ' by the Law. of the State of Pennlylvania they are enabled to hold land in their own right, which is not the case in the State of New York and other States, as they must reside two years to make them citizens.
