Ample experience of 20 years warrants assertion most unqualified, and presents to mankind a remedy whose curative powers are alone com- mensurate by the dire affliction of confirmed stone.

A Secretary read the following letter from Ro- bert Lindet, a representative of the people, and de legate to the department of Eure : " Vernon, July 14. " The Rebels, who were near Vernon 0n the 12th, and were rcpulsed, again appeared on the 13th. The ar- my, however, anticipated them ; the Chief of Brigade Joubert, who commanded in the absence of the General, made the most excellent disposition to receive them, and employed his force in such a manner as kept them at a distance. The Revolters fired five or six cannon : The Republican army, who had only opposed to them evolu tions, marches, and movements, waited the orders of the General to rcpulse force by force. The General ordered the canoncers to fire : The enemy were obliged to quit the field of battle after two four- pounders had fired thirty or forty rounds, and to make a quick retreat towards Evreux. Pascy was evacuated : The army took every measure to prevent a surprise, or any alarm, and to re- pulse the enemy, should they again appear. Some of the army of the Republic were slightly wounded. All shewed the greatest courage— the greatest confidence in the justice of the cause for which they fought, and in their choice of the officers who commanded them. Citizens Enault, Reg- nault, and Baffardin, staff officers, received this morning, when vitsiing the pods, proofs of this confidence. Gene- ral Sephir arrived in the evening. The army is so well provided with artillery as not to have any reason to dread that which was at Evreux. The service is performed with equal zeal and exactness. It is necessary to profit by the present disposition, if we would extinguish the flames of a civil war which have been lighted up in tb department by some rebels, who have taken refuge in Calvados, and who have seduced some young people of different departments. Puysaye commanded on the 15th the body of Rebels. If the contigent of Paris, if the bat- talion and squadron of Seine and Oise hasten to the de fence of their brethren, or if the company of cannoneers of La Halleaux Bleds alone arrives at the camp, the de- partment will be delivered from their oppression and from their yoke, which it supported for a few days only be- cause it had no arms, and had entrusted what it had to those citizens who fight on the Rhine and the Scheldt " We entreat the Convention to continue its attention to the entire suppression of the troubles excited by the Rebels, refugees in Calvados, and to increase the activity of the measures and means, till the sparks of rebellion shall have been extinguished. General Sephir, and Adju- tant General Boulanger, were received with the shouts of Vive la Republique ! They arranged their plans at Mantes. The peasants interest themselves in our success; they would all fight for the consitution, and for the establis- ment of the laws. ( Signed) LINdET.' The Minister at War acquainted the Convention with the dismission of Biron. The Constitution had been accepted at Dole ; the Constituted Authorities " had proclaimed it with pomp at Besancon. The Convention passed a decree with four ar- ticles, for completing the annihilation of every title or record of the ancient nobility. DROUET complained, that the discourse he had pronounced yesterday on the death of Marat had not been inserted in the minutes. " I then an- nounced," said he, " that, for 24 hours, the re mains of our Colleague remain without burial." BENTABOLE demanded, that they should think of he means of honouring his memory. The Assembly ordered Drouet's speech, the pro- ces- verbal of the death of Marat, and the declara- tions of Duperret, to be inserted in the minutes. On the eve of the death of Marat, said DAVID, " the Society of the Jacobins sent to Maure and me the news. I found him in an attitude which struck me : He had a billet of wood near him, on which were ink and paper; and in his hand, which had just come out of the bath, were his last thoughts for the safety of the people. Yesterday the surgeon who embalmed his body, sent to ask in what manner it should be exposed to the view of the people in the church of the Cordeliers. No part of his body can be uncovered ; for he had a leprosy, and his blood was totally inflamed ; but I thought it interesting to present him in the attitude in which I found him, writing for the happiness of the people." CHABOT demanded, that the Convention should attend his funeral; " for," faid he, " since the Mountain is to share his fate, we ought to swear upon his tomb to defend, as constantly as he did, the cause of the People."— Adopted in these terms: The Assembly shall be present in a body at the funeral obsequies of Citizen Marat, one of its Mem- bers, who has- been assassinated in a cowardly man- ner, for the cause of liberty." The Convention charged Citizens David and Maure to concert with the Section concerning the ceremony, and to fix the time-; and that the seal put upon his dwelling should be taken off; that an inventory of his papers, and an account of his affairs nd of his fortune, should be taken; reserving to itself the right of declaring whether or not his debts shall be paid. The death of Marat will be useful to the Re- public," said BeNTABOLe. " We shall soon per- ceive it. Marat sacrificed himself for the Revolu- tion : He was poor, and without the aid of some good Citizens, he would not always have had where- with to subsist. I require that an account be taken of his debts ; and to prove that he was neither hired by anarchy, nor by foreign powers, the nation ought to discharge them."— Applauded. DROUET demanded, that two Commissioners of the Convention should be added to those already in the commission, to take an inventory of his papers, and to examine into the state of his affairs.— Decreed. A moment after, LOUCHET protested against this decree. He observed, that under that report, Ma- rat was only a simple Citizen. " In naming Commissioners," said MAURE, " you do an injury to the Friend of Equality. The ope- rations of the public officers of his Session ought to suffice. Besides, your Commissioners will be calumni- ated : They may be accused of having taken impor- tant papers from Marat's house." He demanded an alteration in the decree. DARTYGORTE maintained, that Marat was out of the ordinary class. " He it is," said he, " whom they accuse of being the head of the Royal or dis- organizing party : It is by such calumnies, that conspirators have led astray the departments, and have caused the best patriots to be proscribed. We must open the eyes of the deceived Citizens: I therefore demand that the decree remain in force ; and that- your Commissioners prove to France that Marat has died poor." I believe," said LACROIX, " that two Commis- sioners have no right to go and take an inventory in a private house ; and that the act of Public Of- ficers are equally authentic as those of your Com- missioners. Let the Public Minister direct the in- ventory : It will be presented to you, and you will order it to be printed, to refute the calumnies which have been made against the Friend of the People." The decree was reported. BIlLAUD DE VARENNES gave in a report of the De- puties under arrest. He charged Gensonne, Verg- niaud, and Gaudet, of having proposed to the ty- rant to remount the throne ; he accused them of having caused to pass a decree, which condemned to punishment, whoever, inflamed with ardent patrio- tic, should propose to establish a Republic. He ac- cused them of having endeavoured to render abortive the Revolution of the 10th of August ; and of having prepared the re- establishment of Royalty, in pro- posing a Governor to the ci- devant Prince Royal. He accused the Legislative Commission of Twenty- one, of having tried to save the tyrant, in having him judged by the then Criminal Tribunal, of which the dispositions were Counter- revolutionary ; and for leaving' his family exposed to the sight of the Citizens, to move them by their fate. He accused this Commission of having acted in concert with Du- mourier, to facilitate the retreat, of the Prussians con- quered in Champaigne ; and of having sent that per- fidious General into the Low Countries, to set 0n foot fresh plots. He accused Gensonne of having been the warmest friend of Dumourier, and of ha- ving carried on a secret correspondence with that traitor, which he contrived to conceal by means of the Ex- Minister Lebrun, his accomplice, He ac- cused Petion of having had the most intimate con- nections with the family of Orleans, of having been a Mentor to his children, and of having been with them in England ; and of having constantly corre- sponded with the eldest son of that family, who had participated in the guilt and flight ol Dumourier. He accused him, also, of having signed, on the 10th of August, the decree of death against those Citizens, who, believing him their friend, had taken for coun- ter- sign, Vive Petion ! Vive la Nation !— He accused Brissot of having directed the projects of Dumourier — of having broken, by a combined declaration of war, the good intelligence which, since the Revolution, had u- nited the French and English people.— He accused the leaders of the Right Side of having even defended the Counter- Revolutionists— of having caused the first decree of accusation against Montesquiou to be repealed, to give that treacherous General time to escape- i- of having calumniated the Paris battalions — of having defended the conspirator Dietrick, and of having cruelly persecuted the best patriots.

He accused the Committee of Gene- ral Safety, in which the Deputies from La Gironde prevailed, of being accomplices of Dumourier, and of having allowed his accomplice Beurnonville to escape— of having paved the way for the present misfortunes, in abandoning the army, and in attempt- ing to deliver them up to foreign powers. He ac- cused all of- them of having wished to dissolve the National Convention; and to accomplish it, of ha- ving favoured the revolt of La Vendee, Finisterre, Isere, Lyons, Eure, and Calvados. He accused them of being assisted with the misfortunes of these rebellious fanatics, and of having rejoiced in their success. " Behold those who call themselves friends of the Republic," exclaimed Billaud, " those whose federalism is so notorious, that it is remarkable that the two Deputies from Mont- Blanc, who had voted for this system in their own country, have taken their seats on the Right Side, close by Buzot and Barba- roux. These political tartuffs always denounce the pretended plot of assasinating the Right Side of the Convention ; yet three Deputies of the Mountain have already fallen by their poignards. Traitors, they exclaim that their life is in danger, at the moment they thrust a poignard into our bosoms. I move a decree of accusation againd them." This discourse, which was much applauded by the Mountain and citizens, was ordered to be printed, and sent to the departments. GASPARIN caused a decree to be passed, which re- duces to four the Representatives of the People with the armies, and which prohibits them from dele- gating any of their functions. General BEAuHARNOIS sent a letter to contradict the report of the taking of Mentz. Ammunition Was there in great plenty ; and the soldiers were in the same disposition as at the beginning of the siege, resolved rather to die than furrender.— On the zd of June, the son of the King of Prussa was in dan- ger of being taken prisoner by one of the French battalions, in a skirmish in which JO of the enemy had been killed, with the loss of only one chasseur. The Convention set aside, by the previous que- stion, the project of a decree for transferring from the Abbaye to the ci- devant Palais Bourbon the re- lations of the Prince de Cobourg, who, by virtue of a decree, are made hostages for the Commissioners of the Convention detained prisoners by the Au strians. BARRE read an account of many adhesions to the Constitutional Act. Tuesday, July 16. LETTER from DUBOIS DUBAYE, Rcpresentative of the People with the Army of the North. " CITIZEN PRESIDENT, Maubeuge, July 12. " Gourville, Commandant of the place, had resolved to chace the enemy from a neighbouring redoubt. He chose for this expedition six companies of grenadiers. Arrived " at a certain distance, they separated. The right column, under Col. Bastia, threw itself into the redoubt with that Intrepidity peculiar to Frenchmen only. Bastia himself brought to the ground two Austrians, the soldiers he com manded imitated his example, and the redoubt was soon carried ; but it was not occupied for more than three quarters of an hour, on account of an event of which we are now searching the cause. The three other companies did not arrive. The first, borne down by numbers, was obliged to retreat. Bastia was wounded, and many of our brave grenadiers perished. We made 13 prisoners, in the number of whom is the Commandant of the redoubt. In the remainder of the letter, Dubois gave the highest praise to the soldiers who had the glory to be present at this expedition. He transmitted two addresses from the two battalions of La Meurthe and L'Yonne, who expressed their desire for the prompt acceptance of the Constitutional Act, which they considered as the pledge of the independence and happiness of their country. The Deputies from St Domingo gave the fol lowing account of that colony : " The calamity of St Domingo is at its height Polverel and Santhonax exercise over the Colony the greatest despotism : They imprison, according to their pleasure, the citizens, who, to escape from their fury, are obliged to fly to the mountains, or to- take refuge with strangers.— These Commissioners arm the Artizans to promote their tyranny : The Colonists, in their turn, arm them to give them battle. If speedy succours are not given to that unhappy island, it will be soon nothing but a field of blood and desolation.— These wicked men appear to be the agents of Roland and Claviere. By the ruin of our commerce, they certainly intend to se- cond the ambitious views of our enemies; and to hasten a Counter- Revolution, by irritating our ma- ritime towns." BREARD.—" I have for a long time denounced Polverel and Santhonax; they have ever appeared to be vile intriguers. I know not from what fatality the report I demanded on their conduct has never been made. The papers which served for the pro cess of Blanchelande prove that these traitors em ployed the forces of the Republic to protect the Counter- Revolution; and that, so far from execu tiong your decrees, they have usurped a Legislative Authority. I demand a decree of accusation against them."— This motion was adopted, and the Com- mittee of Public Welfare ordered to present the mode of executing the decree; and to join with that of the colonies to make a report, in the space of eight days, of the actual state of St Domingo, and on the means of restoring peace to that wretched co- lony, The Revolutionary Tribunal complained of not having received the documents relative to the mur- der of Marat.— Referred to the Committee of Ge- neral Safety. FAUChET wrote from the Abbaye where he is a prisoner, " I deny as an atrocious calumny the as- sertion advanced by Chabot. I have never seen the woman who assassinated Marat; and yet my name is coupled with that of the assassin, and I am pro- claimed her accomplice." He recounted the ser- vices which he had rendered to liberty. The following particulars of the correspondence of Gen. Custine were read to the Convention : Cambray, July 14. The advanced posts of the army of the North have been attacked by superior forces they were obliged to make a momentary retreat; but being soon after supported by considerable reinforcements, they bore down upon the enemy in their turn and killed a great number of them. Peyne, a volun- teer, was pursued by an Austrian ; he fired at and missed him. The hussar rushed upon him ; he stop- ped short, and killed the Austrian and his horse by two stabs of his bayonet.— Applause. Cambray, July 15. Custine complains of the Minister at War, who seems to wish to disorganize the armies of the North, by taking off one corps now, and another then ; and by sending positive marching orders to battalions, without giving him previous notice of it. He declares that he will not suffer any detach- ment to depart from his army, without an express decree of the National Convention ; and that he shall never be an accomplice of men who, by male- volence or incapacity, seem to have sworn the dis- grace and ruin of the Republic. Custine informed the Convention, that he had re- ceived departmental commissions from Lyons, Bour- deaux, Marseilles, Caen, and Evreux, with invita- tions to adhere to the project of avenging the Na- tional Representation, on account of the act of vio- lence committed upon it by a factious Minority, whose punishment will be demanded and obtained by an army of 80,000 men. This packet contain- ed a letter from General Wimpsen, who calls him- self General of the Departmental Armies— and the answer which General Custine thought proper to return. Wimpsen puts Custine in mind of their constant and intimate connection : He represents France as enslaved by a faction ; announces to him the wishes of the majority of the departments re- specting the events of the 31st of May and 2d of June ; and flatters himself, that a General who has done so much for the liberty of his country, will not betray its cause in a moment so critical as that into which factions have involved it. This letter is dated from Evreux, July 6. Cambray, July 12. Custine answers Wimpsen, that he judged ill of him, if he could believe him capable of attempting to make the least attempt against the unity and in- divisibility of the Republic ; that he can call anar- chists only those ambitious men who compose a re- bellious majority; that he shall never know any other rallying point than the National Convention ; and that he shall cease to correspond with him as long as he shall be the Chief of an handful of fac- tious men.— Applause. All these letters were referred, without discussion, to the Committee of Public Welfare. A member observed, that it had been reported yesterday, that the plague was ravaging Paris.— This report," continued he, " is destitute of all foundation : I went yesterday to the hospital called Hotel Dieu ; no epidemical disorders infest that a- sylum of suffering humanity : But there is a salu- tary measure, an act of justice, to be adopted with regard to the unfortunate patients confined in that hospital, especially at this time of the year, when they are most in want of breathing, and pure and salubrious air : The garden of the episcopal Palace, which is contiguous to the hospital, will afford them that convenience."— Decreed instantly. On the motion of THURIOT, it was also decreed, that a part of the patients in the Hotel Dieu, and other hospitals, should be removed to the National Edifices. OSSELIN embraced this opportunity to call, the at- tention of the Assembly to the prefent state of the prisons. He represented, that the persons detained for petty offences were confounded with the male- factors, and infected the prisons with all their vices The Convention charged the Minister of Justice to make a report respecting the execution of the gaol laws. DAVID—' I went with my colleagues into the section of the Theatre Francaise, in order to put in to execution the decree issued yesterday. Putrefac- tion has rendered the corpse of Marat so infectious, that it will be impossible to lay him out in state. Only one half of his body will be presented to view, covered with a wet sheet. He is to be interred to night, having been exposed to the sight of the Friends of Liberty in the garden of the Cordeliers where he formerly entertained and instructed them by his lessons and example. I have read the lives of the Aristides, the Catos, and the Fabricii, and the great men of antiquity : All I can do is to ad- mire them, but not to make their panegyric.— I am exactly thus situated with regard to Marat: I have seen him— I have known him— I have constantly admired him— Posterity will be his judge." GUFFROY read an address from the Section of La Liberie at Bourdeaux, by which it accepts the Con- stitution, and invites the other Sessions to follow its example.— Honourable mention. LAUNAY—" Your Committee of General Safety has caused the Seals to be put upon the Registers of the Financiering Companies. This is attacking the very source of stock- jobbing. It remains for you to seize upon those bills of exchange which, by their secret circulation, are so much in favour of the calculations of the moneyed men. I move that your Committees of General Safety and of Finance do present their projects on this matter." FABRE D'EGLANTINE—" The Financiering Com- panies elude the Laws of Exchange ; they discredit the assignats by giving a ficitious value to their pa- per. The terrible game of secret exchange, which lasts only an hour at the Exchange, lasts the whole day at the Palais- Royal. Since that epoch, the shares which were worth 600 livres rose to 1200 ; and the higher they rise, the lower the assignats sink This is an intricate conspiracy against our finances, and the subsistence of the people. I second Lunay's proposition."— Decreed. ChARlES proposed to use all possible means to dis- perse the gangs of stock- jobbers who meet in the Palais- Royal, and all other places.— Order of the Day. GOSSUIN announced, that upon proper investiga- tion at the Mandamus Office, it appeared, that since the 1st of July, and all the subsequent days, 595 De puties had received their salaries; that were with the armies ; and that 23, then present in the Convention, remained unpaid ; whence it resulted, that 686 Deputies were in full exercise of their func- tions ; and, to complete the number of 745, 59 were either absent on leave, by illness imprison- ment, or flight. A letter from Vernon, dated July 15, and ad- dressed to the Committee of Public Welfare by the representatives of the people sent into the depart- ment of Eure, announced, that, according to all the reports received, it was an indubitable fact, that the rebels of Eure retreated into Calvados; that the arrival of the artillery had produced the greatest ef- fect; that a General Officer of the troops of the Re- public was gone, without uniform, to Evreux, where he would invite all the citizens to rally themselves with the principles of the indivisibility of the Repu- blic, and with the National Convention. The Commissioners remark, that this insurrection bears no analogy to that of La Vendee ; but that it is a matter of importance to deliver speedily Evreux and Caen from the new tyrants who have assembled there. They express their wish, that the citizens of Paris should send off their contingent, to stifle in embryo this germ of civil war. Wednesday, July 17. GOSSUIN stated, that the citizens of Maubeuge, and its brave garrison, had sworn to be buried in the ruins of that place, rather than surrender to the enemy. He read an address to the departments se- duced to liberticide measures.— Honourable mention. An Aid- du- Camp of the army of the Republic, in the departments of Eure and Calvados, appeared at the bar, with a letter from the Commissioners sent to those departments, of which the following is the purport: The city of Evreux has just been reconquered for liberty. As soon as it had recovered from the yoke of the rebels, which oppressed it, that city ex- pressed its real wish: It attested its inviolable at- tachment to the Republic and the National Con- vention ; and in a few days the Primary Assemblies will meet for the acceptance of the Constitution. ' The inhabitants of Evreux quit that city, and go to receive the Commissioners, mix with the army, and hug in their arms the brave defenders of liberty. " We thank fate," added the Commissioners, " that this glorious day cost us no blood. The advanced guard of the army entered Evreux, and the rebels retired into Calvados." LACROIX exclaimed, " Buzot wishes to kindle ci- vil war in the bosom of his country, and to establish federalism ! I demand that the house which he oc- cupied at Evreux be razed to the ground.— Bursts of applause. Some Members seemed to doubt whether Buzot had a house at Evreux; others pleaded for the na- tional generosity in behalf of the creditors of that Deputy. THURIOT seconded Lacroix's motion; adding at the same time, that it became the justice of the na- tion not to let Buzot's creditors become victims of his perfidy. He proposed, by way of amendment, that an inscription be raised on the spot where Bu- zot's house stood, with these words—" Here lived the villainous Buzot, who conspired against his country All these propositions were decreed. The Aid- du- Camp being suffered to speak, an- nounced, that after the engagement of the 13th and 14th, when the rebels were dispersed, and after the re- capture of Pascy, the van of the army entered Evreux, evacuated by the rebels, under the com- mand of Puissaye, formerly a Nobleman— The castle of the latter was seized : The property found in it was respected, since it is become national; and a cross of the order of St Louis was the only effect which was taken away, to be deposited on the altar of the country. As to the inhabitants of Evreux, they received the soldiers of the Republic as bro- then, friends, and deliverers.— Having confirmed the account of the Commissioners, that the inhabi- tants of Evreux were uniting in Primary Assem blies, the Aid- du- Camp was admitted to the ho- nours of the fitting, amidst the loudest applause General WESTERMANN, ordered to come to the bar in virtue of a decree, requested admittance ; but the Convention referred him to the Committee of General Safety. The city of Metz signified its acceptance of the constitution. The Commissioners with the army of the Coasts gave fresh particulars respecting the conduct of Ge- neral Westermann at Chatillon.— This General had ordered a veteran Officer, who commanded a bat- talion, to take a position, which the latter, knowing it to be bad, thought proper to exchange for ano- ther, in which he loudly said he should not be sacri- ficed. Westermann hearing of his disobedience, or- dered that officer before him, made him kneel down and was on the point of ordering the chasseurs of his legion to shoot him, when the cries of Pardon were heard. Westermann consented to hear the of- ficer ; but the latter would not answer before he should have left the humiliating posture he was in This being granted, he explained his conduct; and Westermann himself was obliged, in the presence of all, to own that the position taken by the veteran Captain was better than that which he had ordered him to take. LACROIX observing that Westermann was that very moment before the Committee of General Safety, the letter was referred to that Committee PARIS— July 18. The funeral of MARAT was celebrated the day before yesterday, with the greatelt pomp and solem nity. All the Sections joined in the procession, some with their colours, but all of them with their stand ards. An immense crowd of people attended it Four women bore the bathing machine in which MARAT was standing when he was assassinated ; his shirt, stained with blood, was carried by another Amazon at the top of a pike. After this followed a wooden bed- stead, on which the corpse of- MARAT was carried by Citizens. His head was uncovered; and the gash made by the knife of the assassin could be easily distinguished. The procession paraded through several streets ;— and was saluted on its march by several discharges of artillery. At half past ten o'clock at night, the remains of MARA were deposited in a grave dug in the yard of the Club of the Cordeliers, between four linden- trees. At the base his bed of state the following words were inscribed: MARAT, The Friend of the People, Assassinated by the Enemies of the People. Enemies of the Country, Moderate your Joy ; He will find Avengers! CHARLOTTE la CORDE was tried yesterday for the murder of MARAT, the Friend of the People, by the Revolutionary Tribunal. Her countenance display- ed heroic disdain, and her answers, by their bold- ness, struck every spectator with astonishment. At the beginning of her trial she thus addressed her judges:— I did not expect to appear before you; I always thought that I should be delivered up to the rage of the people, torn in pieces, and that my head, stuck on the top of a pike, would have preceded MARAT on his state- bed, to serve as a rallying point to Frenchmen, if there still are any- worthy of that name. But, happen what will, if I have the honours of the Guillotine, and my clay- cold remains are buried, they will soon have con- ferred upon them the honours of the Pantheon, and my memory will be more honoured in France than that of JUDITH in Bethulia." Sentence of death was pronounced upon this resolute woman, and she was executed in the evening. The Sections of Marseilles persist in their deter- mination of marching against the Convention. They have already taken Avignon, which was for the Maratists; but no blood has been shed. The city of Lyons is still in a state of insurrection against the Sans- Culottes, and Partizans of the Convention; its armed force is very considerable, and has been re- inforced by several platoons of Marseillois, who are daily arriving. The Popular Tribunal at Marseilles has pronounced sentence of death upon one PAULET, who, being arraigned for the murder of thirteen persons, answered with great coolness and uncon- cern, Your charge is false, I only killed nine of them ! Gen. WIMPFEN'S army is now very formidable ; and though the Maratists have been suffered to take possession of Evreux, the partizans of the Moderates say, that they only evacuated it from motives of policy, and that they might join Gen. WIMPFEN in Calvados. VIENNA— July 4. A letter from Grodno, of the 28th of June, gives us the following interesting account of what had hap pened in the Diet: Count de SIEVERS, the Russian Minister, insisted that the KING and the Nation, assembled in a Diet, should sign the Act of Accession to the New Parti- tion of Poland, part of which was already in the pos- session of her Majesty the EMPRESS of RUSSIA- Many difficulties arose on that subject, on which Count SIEVERS attempted to cross, the Hall, in order to speak to his Majesty. A geat number of Nun- cios observed to him, that according to the laws of that kingdom, no Foreign Minister is allowed to ad- dress the KING in the Diet without special permis- sion. But Count SIEVERS, disregarding this admonition, found means to penetrate through the Nuncios, in spite of their opposition, and to whisper few words to his MAJESTY. The KING answered in a loud voice : " The Russians, indeed, had the power in their hands to do what they pleased ; his MAJESTY was unable to resist their forces ; and if Russia should think fit to take away the Crown from him, he should undoubtedly be obliged to submit: But nothing on earth should prove capable of inducing him to sign that act of consent to the new dismemberment of his unhappy country." This speech was received by two- thirds of the Nuncios with the loudest acclamations, who imme- diately declared themselves to be of the same reso- lution. Count SIEVERS, after the adjournment of the Diet, in order to stifle this fermentation in its birth, thought fit to order nine Nuncios or Representatives, Mem- bers of the Diet, to be arrested in their palaces ; the pretence was, that they were the authors of a fac- tion againd the interests of the Court of Petersburgh. OFFICIAL ACCOUNT of the taking of COSTHEIM, by the PRUSSIANS, under the command of Lieut. Gen. VON ScHOENFELD. Orders having been given to attack and carry Costheim, in the night between the 7th and 8th in- stant, Lieut. General Von SCHOENFELD gave the following orders and disposition for the attack, in the evening of the 7 th :— " Two columns shall be formed. " The left column, destined for the main attack, and to take Costheim in flank, shall consist of 150 Prussian volunteers, with Captain Von RAUMER. at their head— of three Prussian battalions, viz. the second battalion of Borch, the grenadier battalion, and second battalion of Crousatz, and moreover the Saxon battalion of Gotha : These are to be followed by one troop of Borstel, and 200 workmen in their rear. " Of this column, 50 volunteers, supported by the second battalion of Crousatz, shall first attack the Chapel ; and then the Frankforter gate of Cost- heim, while the rest of the column shall continue its march towards the gate of Mentz. " The right column, destined to cover this at- tack againd Cassel, the Rhine, the redoubts, and the intrenchments behind Costheim, shall consist of two battalions of Hessians, one troop of Borstel, one troop of Saxon carabineers, and the Saxon battalion of Clemens: The latter, however, shall only act as a body of reserve, with two pieces of cannon, and two grenade mortars. " This column shall keep up in a line with the left, and lodge itself between Costheim and the ene- my's works, in such a manner that its left wing shall close on the Mayn, and the right bend itself more backwards, to face Cassel, and to cover both the attack and the works to be afterwards constructed." The troops executed these orders with the utmost exactness and intrepidity. The darkness of the night occasioned a small alteration, by the' battalion of Crousatz, which advanced a little too far to the right of Cassel. Col. GOETZ, with the greatest pre- sence of mind, ordered them to change their posi- tion, while he marched with the Saxon battalion of Gotha, at the head of which there were 50 volun- teers of Crousatz, straight to the Frankforter gate of Costheim, and penetrated into it. Lieutenant General Von SEHOENFELD led, during this time, the other part of the column to the Mentzer gate of Costheim ; and although he was received there with a brisk discharge of musquetry and artillery, and had his horse shot under him, yet Captain Von RAUMER found means to jump in- to the enemy's fosse of communication behind the Mentzer gate, and to penetrate into Costheim, at the'head of 100 volanteers. He was so well seconded by the second battalion of Borch, that the latter pe- netrated into Costheim close behind the volunteers. The enemy finding themselves attacked on all sides, and not having even supposed that such a bold enterprise was possible, as our troops were to pene- trate from behind, by passing between the village and their adjacent redoubts, they endeavoured to defend themselves in the village by a fire of musque- try, which lasted about an hour : But being sur- rounded on all sides, and compelled, to the num- ber of 150 men, including nine officers and one sur- geon, to surrender themselves prisoners of war, with the loss of four pieces of cannon, they yielded to our victorious troops. The rest of the French gar- rison of Costheim was mostly cut in pieces, and on- ly a few of them escaped by flight. The head of the right column, consisting of a part of the Hessian battalion of grenadier guards, com- manded by the Prussian Major LECOQUE, and the Hessian Captain Von WIEDEHOLD, first covered the right flank of the assailant column, and afterwards its rear, kept up with it in the same line, and marched up against the enemy's works in such a man ner as to hinder them from quitting their trenches. As soon as the enemy had been dislodged from Costheim, the workmen went to do their duty, and executed the plan of fortification and defence given by Major LECOQUE. At broad- day, Lieut. Gen. Von SCHOENFELD or- dered the cavalry, which had remained all night long under the cannon of Cassel, and penetrated with their picquets and patroles to the gates, to re- turn to their quarters. Considering circumstances, our loss would be but trifling were there not several excellent officers a- mong those who are dangerously wounded. Amongst the wounded is Lieutenant BLANKENSTEIN, jun. of Crousatz, who carried the fortified Chapel at the head of 50 volunteers. Upon the whole, it appears that the French only maintained Costheim to give us opportunities to kill their men, and take their cannons: They have lost in several attacks 800 men, and seven pieces of ar- tillery. Our loss consists of eight men killed, and 127 wounded, including twelve officers, and nine cor- porals and serjeants; and 17 men are missing. The names of the wounded officers are as follow ; Capt. Binau, of the grenadiers of Dunilaze, Lieut. Von Harres, of the Guards. Major Von Diericke, of Borch of Crousatz.' Lieut. Wietski, Ensign Von Perrick, Major Weyher, Capt. Perzyschowski, Lieut. Machs, Lieut. Blankenstein, Ensign Von Brunou, Cornet Himecke, of the cuirassiers of Borstel. London, July The last accounts represent Lord HOWE'S fleet as rather working to windward : Such is certainly not the course which leads to the coast of France, neither do we apprehend that his immediate desti- sation lies that way, but that rather his object is to render perfectly secure the homeward- bound trade from the West Indies, as it is understood a French force is at sea, too powerful for that which convoys the English ships: This, it is said, left Brest not long since. What important object the British fleet may have in view, after the safe arrival of the Western trade, it is supposed will be pursued in concert with the Portuguese squadron, arrived at Portsmouth. We are now taught to believe, that no accounts have come to Government relating to Admiral GARDNER, further than that he is at Martinique ; the troops which he had landed were not re- embark- ed. It is still supposed the place is by this time alto- gether in possession of the English. Before the English fleet arrived there, a great part of the inhabitants had made their escape to Dominique; many lost their lives in this expedition. Letters from Dover state, that it is generally be- lieved there, that Valenciennes has surendered, in consequence of an assault being made immediately on the blowing up of the outer works. As no re- gular accounts have arrived of a later date than those which have appeared in this paper, we can say nothing to this, further than that it was on an as- sault the besiegers relied their last hopes of success. A report has likewise prevailed, that Mentz was also taken by similiar means; but that the King of PRUSSIA lost 10,000 men in the breach.— We be lieve neither of these rumours to be well founded. Respecting Valenciennes, the last regular accounts informed us, that the garrison were so determined . to resist, even to the centre of the place, that they have begun to throw up lines of circumvallation a- round the citadel in the very streets of the town. It was yesterday strongly rumoured, that it has absolutely been subject matter of debate in the Privy Council, whether or not the British troops should be recalled from before Valenciennes; however, this statement ill accords with the fact, that a consider- able train of artillery has already been ordered out, in addition to that formerly sent.— In a word, it is not the leading charasteristic of our present Cabi- net to publish the secrets of their business while it is pending. It will be seen by the French National Conven- tion, that an alarm has prevailed in Paris of a plague having broke out in that unhappy city. Whether - founded in truth or not, we cannot say, but it was at lead sufficiently formidable to call for the utmost exertions to suppress it; when the last accounts left Paris, this alarm had by no means subsided, not- withstanding the declaration of the Convention. Marat in his grave, Roberspierre is considered as the demon of the day. The Jacobins still hold to- gether in firm phalanx; and at this moment their united efforts are more than ever requisite— The Girondists are on their march against them :— These latter, it will be remembered, on the King's trial, proposed making the final appeal to the people ; therefore, if they should succeed against the a- narchists, and we believe it is the unbiased with of France that they should, the lives of the Queen and her son may probably be saved. As things, however, are at present, the mere death of Marat is nothing in their favour; indeed, this circumstance may be made use of, during the fervour of the instant, to their disadvantage. We hear nothing of Gaston and the Royalists: There is, however, no doubt bat they are still in arms. The transports which carried over the Dragoon Guards and Scots Greys arrived safe at Ostend on Wednesday se'ennight; from whence they marched on Friday morning to join the army cantoned be- tween Ostend and Dunkirk, under the command of Sir WILLIAM ERSKINE. Both the men and the horses were in excellent order, and made a noble appear- ance. A battalion of the Light Infantry arrived at Ostend on the same day, where they still remain with the 37th Regiment and Emigrant Legion. LORD CAVAN, it is certain, has entirely recovered from his late wound. Orders have been sent down to Woolwich to get ready immediately sixty twenty- four pounders, and thirty iron ten- inch mortars, with a suitable quan- tity of ammunition, to be sent to the allied armies. The Prussian General, Count de GOLTZ, was dan- gerously wounded in a late reconnoitring party, in a wood beyond Bouvines, where the French were in ambuscade— a number of his attendants fell at the same time. It is little known, but it is certain, that the ground occupied by M. CUSTINE, between Bouchain and Cambray, includes the whole of Caesar's Camp in that neighbourhood, which is in greater preserva- tion, considering its extent, than any other which he has left. The ditches, in some places, were so perfect two years since, that in the opinion of mi- litary men, a thousand men might completely restore them in three days. At the conclusion of the last campaign, this post was surveyed by M. DUMOURIER, who pronounced it Camp Inexpugnable. The military fame of Louis XIV. revives with the tediousness of the present contest in Flanders.— Not a place there but is indebted for some part of its strength to him ; and, still more, the country, which 160,000 men have assailed for four months, with no other advantage than that of taking one town by famine, he entirely conquered in three months, with an army never exceeding forty- seven thousand men. Letters from on board the BERWICK, dated Gib- raltar, June 22, date, that there were then lying in the Bay ten sail of Portuguese ships of the line, ten Spanish, and twenty British ; and that all this fleet, in the space of ten days, was to proceed to Carthagena. Its further destination was not parti- cularly known ; but it was rumoured, that an at- tack was meditated upon the port of Toulon.— The fleet had taken three prizes, a French man of war, brig, and two merchantmen with very valuable cargoes. the French, it was said, had 25 sail of the line at Toulon. Two more Generals accused and dismissed by the National Convention, viz. Biron and Westermann ! We believe that there is not ONE General, except Custine, who has figured away in the French revolu- tion, but who has in his turn been dismissed. The latter has been often denounced ; and the first mis- fortune that happens to his army will probably cost him his head. No less than thirty- five mails are now due from France, according to the office lists, which conti- nue to enumerate them, as if they were expected to arrive. The direct intercourse between the two countries may, perhaps, not be restored in this cen- tury ; but a communication with Paris, certain, though tedious, has been established by the way of Basle, in Switzerland. Letters, by this route, reach Paris in about ten days. About 60 French emigrants are landed at Ply- mouth from Spain. They were dismissed from that country by order of the Government, and brought over by a Spanish vessel. Yesterday a Board was held at the Admiralty- Office, when two frigates were ordered to be got ready to join Admiral GARDNER on the West India station. Negapatnam, taken from the Dutch in the last war, is to be exchanged, in consequence of a re- cent agreement, for Cochin, a settlement on the Malabar coast, near Tillicherry. Lord MACARTNEY and his suite are to remain in the island of Java, till the persons sent to announce their arrival have returned from the EMPEROR'S Court, and till it is known what reception the em- bassy is likely to have. The Commissioners to relieve Commerce by Ex- chequer Bills, have issued no more than 2,075,000!. although it was originally said that the five millions appointed for that purpose would be insufficient.— It is observable, that at the last meeting 60, oool. which had been received on application, were re- paid. It is not believed that further applications will be made to the Commissioners. By the report from the Committee appointed to inquire into the state of the trade to Newfound- land, it appears that that most valuable branch of naval commerce has within these few years differed an alarming decrease. In 1788, the total of ships fitted out from the ports of England amounted to 303; in 1789 to 267 ; in 1790 to 256 ; in 1791 to 242 ; and in 1792 to 230. The American schooners have lately taken possession of the mouth of some rivers on the coast of Labradore, for the purposes of the salmon- fishery. The present promises to be the most plentiful partridge season that has happened for many years. The young birds are so forward as to be able to fly in coveys already ; and are nearly as large as the old ones in some places. The Nides of pheasants are also in great forwardness; so that there will be plenty of game for this year's sportsmen. The grouse will also be in great abundance. Wednesday a bill of indictment was found at the Surrey assizes, Croydon, against Lord WILLIAM MURRAY, Doctor JACKSON, Doctor CROSFIELD, and Mr STABLERS, prisoners in custody of the Marshal of the King's Bench for an attempt to liberate them- selves from that prison. At Buckingham a verdict of iool. was given a gainst a grazier for speaking maliciously of the cre- dit and character of a butcher. After six hours examination on Monday last, at Bristol, Messrs JOHN and SAMUeL FORD, of Bath, machine- makers, bankrupts, were committed to Newgate by the Commissoners, for not giving a sa- tisfactory account of their property. LIVERPOOL— July 23. - The Pilgrim, Hutchinson, belonging to Mr Birch, Mr Ryan, Mr Thomas, and some gentle- men in London, in quarters, is just arrived here. She was bound from hence to the Southern Fishery, but falling in with the La Liberte, a French East Indiaman, engaged her three days; on the second evening of which the French Captain was killed, and on the following morning she struck; when the Pilgrim taking possession, carried her into Barba- dos, where she is condemned," and will proceed to England with convoy. The La Liberte is 800 tons burden, mounts 12 guns, with 63 men ; the Captain and another kill- ed, and 8 wounded. The Pilgrim is 16 guns, and 40 men; 1 killed, and 3 wounded. The India- man's cargo cost 110, oool. Sterling in Bengal, ex- clusive of private property ; had been out three years, and is supposed to be worth at least 150,000!. The French Captain is amongst the dead. On the First Lieutenant of the French ship coming on board the Pilgrim, and seeing her have only 45 men, and the La Liberte 12 nine- pounders, and 60 men, he jumped overboard, and was drowned. A new monument is just opened in the north aide of Westminster Abbey, to the memory of the late Brigadier General HOPE, formerly Lieutenant- Go- vernor of Quebec, erected at the expence of his widow. THE STOCKS. EVENING COURANT. MONDAY— july 29. On Thursday the 25th inst. was married, at St George's Church, Bloomsbury. Capt. JOHN HYDE BROMWICH, of an Independent Company, to Miss KEIR of Southampton Row. ' Died at Ardmillan ( Ayrshire), on the 15th curt. THOMAS CRAuFORd, Esq, of Ardmillan hamILTON, daughter of the late Archibald Hamilton, Esq. of Dalziell and Rosehall. On the 26th curt. died at Annfield in Fife, Mrs ELIZABETH straton, relict of Capt. John Walkin- shaw. On Friday died Mr. JAMES GRANT, printer in Edinburgh. By desire of the Magistrates, we lay before our readers the following letter received by this day's post, for the satisfaction of the trade and public at large;. ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, July 26. 1793. My LORd " Having laid before my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, your Lordship's letter of the 18th inst. trans mitting an affidavit of the master and the mate of the ship Aurora of Leith, stating, that fifteen vessels belonging to different ports in Scotland, had been captured by three French privateers, on their homeward bound voyage from Elsineur, and requesting that immediate and effectual measures may be taken to recover, if possible, as well as to protect hereafter, so valuable a portion of trade, I am in return commanded to acquaint your Lordship, that my Lords have dispatched some of his Majesty's ships in- to the north sea, for the protection of the trade there, and for the special purpose of endeavouring to take or destroy the privateers in question, and any other of the enemy's cruizers which they may be able to come up with.— I am, my Lord, your Lordship's most humble servant. ( Signed) PH. STEPHENS." Hon. Thos Elder, Lord Provost, Edinr. Tuesday the 19th regiment, commanded by Major General COATES, embarked at Shields for Ports- mouth, on board the Sovereign of London, and Adventure of Whitby, transports.— In going out on Wednesday, the Sovereign unfortunately got a- ground on the Mussel- Scalp, where she lay until next tide ; but got off then without any material damage, and went to sea. At the bar she was joined by the Success frigate, Captain ROBERTS, and the other transports. The 42d regiment were to embark at Hull on Friday, and are also to put themselves under the same convoy, at the mouth of the Humber. His Grace the Duke of Devonshire, with a mu- nificence worthy the name of Cavendish, has given the sum of five hundred pounds, for the use of the General Infirmary about to be erected near Shef- field._ Friday morning, the ship Adventure, Capt. ROGER, put into Greenock, in distress, having sprung a leak in her passage from the Highlands to Quebec with emigrants. She was eight days at sea. WATERFORD— July 23. Lad Friday se'ennight, three horses and a cow, near Mount William, in the county of Tipperary, were killed by lightning. Friday a vessel arrived at the Cove of Cork in 25 days from St Vincent's. She brings no news in addition to the last accounts from the West Indies, except that Admiral GARDNER'S fleet lay still before Martinico, waiting for troops. WAR OFFICE— Dublin Castle, 21st july 1793. His Majesty has been pleased to make the follow- ing promotions in the army on this establishment, and the commissions, dated 29th June 1793, are come over accordingly, viz. 7th Dragoon Guards— Mr Edward Davis to be Cornet, vice Fane, promoted. . , 5th Dragoons— Mr John M'Causland to be Cornet, vice Hutchinson, promoted. 8th Dragoons— Mr William BrooKe to be Cornet, vice Creighton, promoted. . 12th Dragoons— I. ieut.

In addition to the above, letters from Hamburgh advise, that an agent from England last month had purchased entirely the immense stores of oats in that city as well as at Bremen for the use of the British, Hanoverian, and Hessian armies on the French fron- tiers: By this means, together with what will con- tinue to be sent to Ostend from England, thefe troops cannot fail of being amply supplied with that im- portant branch of forage during the present cam- paign. Two companies of the royal Irish regiment of ar- tillery, are, we hear, immediately to embark for Ostend, in order to join the British army under the command of his Royal Highness the Duke of YORk before Valenciennes. LIMERICK— July 16. Yesterday morning about eight o'clock, a corpo- ral and six privates of the 34th regiment, returning to town, after leaving a deserter at Tipperary, were attacked by a great concourse of country people, within a mile of this side of Palisgreen ; on the party refusing to give up their arms, the mob pelted them with stones, on which they fired off all their ammunition ; they then closed on the brave few, took away their arms and accoutrements, stabbed them with their own bayonets, and otherwise used them in so cruel a manner that the lives of five are in imminent danger ; they were brought into the hospital in the evening on cars.

" FRENCHMEN, " The National Convention is informed, that the enemies of liberty have already falsified the Consti- tutional Act, and are using every perfidious effort to circulate in profusion copies of it disgraced by lies. " It is easy to discover their intention. They wish to prevent the people from knowing and ap- preciating the real labours of their Mandatories.— They with to corrupt and divide, by anticipation, the public opinion— they wish to stifle that general assent of the nation, ready to burst forth, and meet the eternal basis of liberty and equality ; they be- hold only with despair the approaching reign of the law ; and they hasten to glut themselves, by moral anarchy, with the troubles and misfortunes of which the Constitution is going to deprive them. " How weak and foolish are these corrupters of public reason, who imagine that, by obscuring it for some days, it will never more appear ! as if the people could be mistaken in that respect ; and as if the press, which they wished to make their accomplice, will not confound them by conveying to the people the real thoughts of their Constituents ! " This attempt of modern aristocracy was un- knwon to the ancients. If the power of printing was wanting to them, they were at least ignorant of its crimes. They committed their laws only to in- corruptible brass, or to the pure remembrance of children; and they did not behold them blasted in their infancy by that invention which ought to con- secrate and diffuse them. " It is therefore a new obligation imposed on the Legislator to watch over, and as one may say, to fol- low his own work, until it arrive in full purity at the most distant cottage. It is also a new duty for a Revolutionary People, who, by the noblest means, are approaching the term of their regeneration, to guard, with the utmost vigilance, against those base calumniators of the Constitutional Monument— those secret enemies of the nation, who wish to annihilate all its rights, and to blast even its hopes, by break- ing the anchor which the Legislators have thrown out amidst the storm. " Among the Athenians the law inflicted death on every stranger who introduced himself into the Popular Assembly, because he usurped the sove- reignty. Among the French, become free, let him who shall introduce himself into the thoughts of the Legislators, to misrepresent the result of them, fall under the sword of the law. " The National Convention invites all the friends of liberty, to search out with diligence these fabri- cators of false laws. It recommends to all citizens not to pass sentence, nor to express their will, but on authentic copies, addressed directly by the Exe- cutive Council to Communes, and the Constituted Authorities. " Frenchmen, your patriotism will easily defeat these manoeuvres. Every grand epoch of the revo- lution has always excited one crime more of Aristo- cracy and Royalism. We had reason to expect, that all their crimes and efforts would be united at the moment when the Constitution was about to appear but these efforts themselves will ensure to you the success of a work, which they would not have alter- ed, had it been hurtful to the people, and unfavour- able to their rights. These impotent efforts will con- duce to establish the Republican Constitution, as ca- lumny has always conduced to the triumph of vir- tue." DECREE passed in the National Convention on the first of July Every person who shall cause to be printed, sold, or distributed, one or more altered or falsified copies of the Declaration of the Rights of Men and Citi- zens, and of the Constitutional Act, the wording of which was decreed on the 24th of June 1793, I recommend it to your humanitv, and I beg it as a favour, Citizen Minister, that you will soli- cit the Convention to give fome assistance to the wi- dow of the unfortunate Capt. DUBEDAT, who is left with two children, and nothing to support them.— Never can the widow of a defender of his country have so just and so well merited a claim to recom- pence as this one, who has sustained an irreparable loss. It will be an encouragement which it is of importance to give in the present circumstances.— This engagement, the first fought this war by our privateers, does honour to the nation, and to those who maintained it with so much valour." FRENCH ACCOUNT Of the Action between the VENUS frigate, commanded by Capt. FAulkNER., and the SEMILLANTE French frigate. Letter from the Commandant of Arms to the Mi- nister of the Marine, dated Brest, June 3. 1793. " I have the honour to inform you, that the fri- gate la Semillante, which was cruising off Cape Finisterre, has returned to this port. Citizen GAR- REAU, who commands at present, relates, that on the 27th of May, in lat. 46. 12, N. and long. 16. 13. W. the Captain of the Semillante descried at one o'clock in the morning, wind E. N. E. a vessel to the leeward on a south east course. The Semil- lante, which was steering north, immediately tack- ed to take a view of her, and perceived her to be an English Ship of war, of 40 guns. Capt. GAIL- LARD attacked her at six o'clock, and after the firing had continued three quarters of an hour, that offi- cer was killed by a shot in the brest. BELLEVILLE, the 2d Captain, then took the command, and in a few minutes he fell also. GARREAU having assumed the command, and finding that a great many of the shot fired from the Semillante took no effect, ap- proached the enemy within pistol- shot. A violent firing then ensued, which continued till half after nine, when the crew of the Semillante en- deavoured to board the English frigate, which de- clined the contest by keeping close to the wind. As the bowlines of the Semillante had been cut during the action, she could not get near enough to the enemy at that moment, and could not execute the board- ing, which the enemy fairly declined giving us an opportunity of attempting, by employing all their sails to run eastward, and to put an end to the com- bat ; their vessel being no doubt much damaged, as three of her port- holes appeared to be beat into one. The Commanding Officer of the Semillante then thought of repairing his damage, and of pro- ceeding to some place where that might be done without meeting cruizers of superior force which he might have fallen in with. He run a little to the east, but the situation of the vessel's masts obliged him to steer for Brest. This frigate, the crew of which bravely did their duty, without being dis- couraged by the loss of their two chief officers, had twelve men killed and twenty wounded ; her masts and shrouds were much damaged. " GARREAU observes, that the crew were very de- ficient in numbers when the combat took place on the 27th. On the 23d and 25th, the Semillante took two English privateers, viz. the Active, of Liverpool, mounting 14 carriage- guns, and two swivels; and the Betsey, of Jersey, pierced for j 8 guns, and fighting nine on each side, a cutter of a most beautiful construction, Captain GALlIARD sent these prizes to the French ports. The latter he en- trusted to the care of his second officer, MAIMENAU, and put 45 of the crew of the Betsey on board a Portuguese ship, on their promising not to serve a- gainst the Republic, until they should be exchanged for an equal number of Frenchmen." for the acceptance of the French people, shall be punished with death. IRIS AND VENUS FRIGATES. FRENCH ACCOUNT Of the action between the English frigate the IRIS, Captain LUMSDAINE, and LA CITOYENNE FRAN- COISE privateer of Bourdeaux. Letter from Citizen VINCENT, Controller of the Marine at the port of Bordeaux, to the Mi- nister of the Marine, dated Bourdeaux, June 6. " The privateer La Citoyenne Francoise, of this port, Captain DUBEDAT, mounting 26 carriage guns, 8 and 12 pounders, and 6 swivels, returned hither yesterday, after a glorious engagement which she supported on the 13th of last month from six till half after eight in the evening, against an English frigate of 40 guns, in lat. 42. 24. N. and long. 15. W. from the meridian of Paris. Captain DubeEDAT was killed in the engagement by a bullet which struck him in the breast. Citizen RIGAL, the se- cond Captain, then took the command ; but the English frigate being disabled in her bowsprit and mizen mast, dropt astern. La Citoyenne Francoise pursued her; but the Captain finding it necessary to repair his running rigging, which was all cut to pieces, and to fish his lower masts, which he ob- served were in danger of falling overboard, he lost sight of the enemy in the night time, without being able to discover her next morning, as he was not in a condition to croud sail in order to keep up with her. La Citoyenne Francoise had 16 men killed, and 37 wounded. She took a prize a few days af- ter she sailed ; but I do not know that it has yet arrived in our ports. Sixteen English prisoners, whom I shall send to the Castle of Ha, are about to be set on shore from her. " Captain RIGAL says, that the English frigate had on board a great number of troops, who by the fire of their musquetry killed a great many of our people, as the enemy were to the windward, and- kept that position notwithstanding every attempt made to gain the wind of them. " Captain RIGAL bestows great praises on the bra- very of his crew; and had not his rigging and masts been somuch damaged, he has no doubt that consider- ing the distressed state in which the English were, he FORFARSHIRE - leading from FORFAR to DUNDEE, request that all Proprietors and Tenants who have Claims for Ground, taken up by the faid Turnpike Road, and for New Fences or other Damages, will, within one month from this date, lodge the said claims with James Wyllie, writer in Forfar, clerk to the Trustees, in order that measures may be taken for the ascer- taining of their demands, hereby certifying, that after expiry of the said month, no after claims will be attended to.

DEAR SIR, ALEXANDER MACKENZIE, my coachman, was first afflicted with the Veneral Disease, nine years since before he had been healed two months, he complained of a sore throat, and in succession he was afflicted with blotches all o- ver his head and body, severe pains in his bones,^ particularly of a night, a large swelling on each of his shins and a consi- derable one 0n his forehead. Assured that one inadvertant act had been the cause of this complicated evil, I placed him under the care of the most able medical men I could find, who, by various courses of medicine and two Salivations, re- moved his complaints for one or two months time ; but as they always returned with aggravated force, % was at length reduced to fo deplorable a state, ^ s to be incapable of leaving his bed, and for six months ( not being able to bear the mercurials that were likely to be off service) he was en- tirely under the influence of opium, waiting with great pa- tience his dissolution. Informed at this period of a lady at Bath having been, in a like dreadful situation, rescued from the jaws of death by your LEAKe'S pATENT PILLS, I ad- vised a trial of them ; this was consented to ; they were admi- nistered with great caution at first, and by persevering in the use of them for near two months, to the astonishnent of every one his throat was healed, the blotches sealed off, and his skin perfetftly clean, his pains entirely vanished, the nodes on his shins and forehead entirely dispersed, and, a little weakness excepted, he was as well as ever he was in his life. It is now more than twelve months since this cure was com- pleted, during which time this poor fellow has frequently begged me, with tears in his eyes, to send you an account of it, with his grateful thanks, which I promised him to do as soon as I was sure there was no danger of a relapse. The man being now hearty and strong, and never having had a day's illness, since he left of his pills, I return you as well as his, my grateful thanks for the restoration to life I may say of a faithful serVant, whose prayers I am sure you will never be without while he has life or memory ; he wishes you to pu- blish his case in the papers for the good of others; you have my consent to make use of this.
