VOL. LX. THE No. 3118. EDINBURGH ADVERTISER. From TUESDAY NOVEMBER 12, to FRIDAY NOVEMBER 15, 1793. THURSDAY's POST. Frenrt the LONDON PAPERS, NOV. it. LONDON UR readers will wonder what some newspapers mean by the perpetual repetition of " the Carmagnols!'— At that period of the last year, when the French over- run the Austrian Netherlands, a theatrical piece, Cal- led the Siege of Lisle, was repre- sented at Paris with great success; it contained a long in praise of the French cannonry, of which the follow- ing words were the burden : " Dansons la Carmagnole " Vive le son, vive le son, " Dansons la Carmagnole " Vive le son du canon."

Full of their ancient levity, and abounding, perhaps, more than ever in insolence, they seem to have no with for the re- establishment of peace, so necessary to the founding of their new Republic ; nor have they testi- fied even the smallest symptom, of suffering other na- tions to be at quiet, were they to be left entirely to themselves. The cause of this is not deep to seek. The secret lies with their rulers, who at present set the herd in motion. Having risen by riot and disorder, a regular system of government is not suited to their views. It is in confusion only they can thrive ; and for this reason no overtures will ever be made by them, no reasonable terms of peace ever be accepted, while they can, by any means, raise the supplies for war, and by the most forcible measures levy an army for the field. Though trifling indignities cannot materially aggra- vate the enormous crime of infamous regicides towards their Queen, yet they might serve greatly to agonize the feelings of the unfortunate victim ; and for this purpose, no doubt, they were practised against the QUEEN of FRANCE. Her beautiful hair was cut off by the hangman, and she was conveyed to her murder in a dung cart, such as has ever been appropriated to the vilest and meanest malefactors. She had been guarded in sight, ever since the 1st of August, nearly three months, in a room only 12 feet long and 8 feet broad ; four feet under ground, and a grated window just level with the earth. She was hurried repeatedly from this her prison to her trial and back again, three or four times; and finally murdered in about nine hours after her iniquitous sentence. No female near her at the hour of death— not allowed to see or take leave of her sister or her children— and her sacred remains finally thrown, by the base hands of filthy dungeon villains," with more indignity than that of the lowest felon is treated in this kingdom, into a hole, and covered with unslak- ed lime. Jourdan, who succeeded Houcbard in the command of the French northern army, is a man about 36 years of age, who began his career as a common soldier in the infantry regiment of Lafere; after that he was sur- geon in a small village in the province of Limoges ; and then a petty shopkeeper in the city of that name, In 1792, with these previous qualifications, he was made commander of the second battalion of volunteers of Upper Vienne ; and soon after obtained the commis- sion of Chief of Brigade. He is now at the head of the principal army of t Abbey. It is adjoining the one of Lord Chatham's and is of the finest marble, and the most delicate work- manship. Last month was remarkably mild, and many people- lay they do not remember a milder month of October • but October 1783 was as mild, the thermometer was' 69, 67, 66 and above 60 for 13 davs; was below < 0 only two days, the 8th and 28th; first frost the 8th ; first ice the 9th November; the mulberry tree not out of leaf till November 7th ; thermometer from 63 to 32 during November, between the Hours of 7 A. M. and xo P. M. But from January the 22d to the 31st 1784, thermome- ter between 17 and 30— Many birds found dead by the inclemency of the weather in January and February. The Hon. Mr. Fitzmaurice, Member of Parliament; who died lately at Hampstead, was the gentleman, who, from his extensive concerns in the linen manufactory! was called the Royal Merchant. The contents of his warehouses at Chester, in which, during his health, he was generally to be found in times of business, have been frequently estimated at 1oo, oool. ncipal army of the Republicans. The jews are all to quit France, by order of the National Savages, but before they set out, they are to be lightened of what property they possess, it being the law of the country, that no money, nor articles of value are to be exported. This is what those new Le- gislators call securing private property ! No great degree of cordiality subsists between the Imperial and the Prussian troops. The former com- plain that the chief weight of the war rests upon them, and add that the partition of Poland engrosses the at- tention of Prussia more than the war against France. It is certain that the court of Vienna did not easily accede to the treaty between Prussia and Poland. The Spanish Admiral Borghese, with a squadron of fifteen sail of the line, and three frigates, is at present cruising in the latitude of Madeira, in order to convoy a fleet of merchantmen expected from Vera Cruz, which has 80 millions of piastres on board. This sum is intended as a patriotic donation from South Ameri ca, to be employed in carrying on the war against the French. The late Captain Sutherland of the artillery, served with great eclat in America, under Colonel Moncrieff, whom he soon followed to the grave. It is become necessary that the uniform of the Eng lish and Irish artillery should be changed. It so nearly resembles the French, that in a close engagement some of our men have been cut down by the Prussians through mistake. Our artillery officers wear a white handker- chief round their right arm to distinguish them from the enemy, but in a Dark night, and during the heat of action, this has not been found a sufficient protection. A few days since, a very elegant monument, erected by Parliament, at the cost of four thousand pounds to the memory of the late Captains Baine, Blair, and Lord Robert Manners, was opened at Westminster Next week will be Published, , A CATALOGUE OF BOOKS, FOR THE YeAR M dcc, xciv.

The Month is divided Into three DECADES, the days of which are called, tram the Latin numerals, I. Primldi 4. Quart id I 7. Septidi i. Duodi 5. Quintidi 8. Oaodl 3. Tridi 6. Sextidl Nonodi, and 10. Decadi, which is to be the day of rest. A fpecimen of the reckoning introduced bv the above curious scheme—" Decadi of the third decade of Bru- maine, in the second year of the French Republic, one and indivisible,"— is, in plain English— Wednesday, Dec. 2o, 1793. It is very certain, that the learned tutors of the young Louis, are, at present, industriously employed to train him up in ignorance of every duty moral and divine; in a most Sovereign contempt of natural justice ; in an absolute profession of Atheism ; and in a love of every licentious debauchery that can in in the natural princi- ple of the human mind, and place it on a level with the common ideas, or rather the uncontrouled passions, of the brute creation. Though the advantages of the campaign are mani- festly on the side of the Confederates, it is melancholy to reflect, with what little effect they have hitherto been attended; The French, Hardened by their iniquities, become every day more savage 5 and in proportion to their want of success, their fury rises to desperation. Hence, both in council and in the field, their conduct is more that of a band of robbers, than of a nation struggling for liberty ; and all their measures whether for war, or domestic regulation, bespeak rather the fer- vours of madmen; than the deliberate efforts of a great people, endeavouring wisely and coolly to compose all differences and by some settled plan, to fix upon mea- sures, that may procure them peace, both within and from without. iNdeed no regular plan or proceeding in any one circumstance, to be their object What they de BritisH ARMY IN FLANDERS. While our COUNtRYMEN abroad are employed in most laborious and perilous service, in order to Secure for us at home our Religion, our Laws, our Liberties, and our very existence as an Independent and Civilized Nation— It seems to be our duty, by every kind attention in our power, to testify our gratitude to our Gallant Defenders.— The pre- sent seat of the war is a cold and a damp country ; and the season is approaching When our soldier's in those parts may, it is to be feared, be in greater danger from disease than from the sword of the enemy. It is therefore presumed, that a VOLUNTARY SUB- SCRIPTION for supplying the BRITISH TROOPS on the CONTINENT with FLANNEL WAISTCOATS will at this time be deemed not unreasonable — It may prove the means of saving the lives of many brave men, and, by conse- quence, of bringing to a conclusion a war which, on the part of our merciless and unprincipled enemies, has been distin- guished by atrocities disgraceful to human nature, and till now unexampled in the history of mankind.

The Waters of the Susque- hannah, opposite the land, is sufficiently deep for large vessels, and as the land is stocked with Timber for Plank, Staves, and Shingles, & c. in constant demand, the sale of them will amply pay for the clearing of the ground. The low land 0n the River side is as good for wheat or mea- dow as any in the State and the uplands for corn or pastur- age. There is now cutting Navigable Canals from the Sus- quehannah to the Delaware; and from that River to Schull- kill, nigh Philadelphia; which will increase the value of the back land, ' the taxes on land and the neccessaries of life are so light as not to be felt by the poorest in the State. It is ne- cessary for the purchaser to know, that ( an alien) cannot hold lands of a non- resident; but the hour he or she arrives in Ame- rica, by the law of the State of Pennsylvania. they are ena- bled to hold land on 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.

THE dispatches, of which the following are copies and extract, were this day received by Philip Ste- phens, Esq; from the Right Hon. Vice- Admiral Lord Hood, Commander in Chief of his Majesty's ships and Vessels in the Mediterranean : Victory, Toulon Road, October 6, 1793. S I R, I HAVE the honour to desire you will be pleased to offer to the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty my sincere congratulations on a very brilliant and complete victory obtained over the enemy the first inst. upon the heights of Pharon. The British and Piedmontese troops' composed the column under Lord Mulgrave, and led the way; but his Lordship gives full credit to the spirit and exertion of the troops of every nation, and is loud in the praise of the Neapolitans, who greatly distin- guished themselves. I transmit, for their Lord ships' information, a duplicate of the order his Lordship gave out next morning, with an account of the killed and wounded. The action was short, but hot. The ene- my had upon the heights from 1800 to 2000 men, the flower of the Eastern army, not a fourth part of which, we are well informed, ever returned to head quarters ; for what did not fall by the bullet or bayonet, broke their necks in tumbling headlong over the precipices in their flight. In the night of the 30th a very important port, above Fort Pharon, was surprised and taken'; the repossessing of which being of so much consequence, an attempt was immediately resolved upon ;" and, in order to enable Lord Mulgrave, General Oravina, and Go-, vernor Elphinstone, with the respective columns under their commands, to go out with the greater force, I undertook the care of Toulon and Fort La Malgue, and had a sufficient number of good men on shore, within two hours after receiving notice of the said disaster. I am sorry to inform their Lordships of that gallant and able officer, General Gravina, being wounded in the leg; and although there is no doubt { as Dr. Har- ness assures me, who has the care of him) of his doing perfectly well, he will probably be confined some time, as the ball is lodged between the two bones. His Majesty's ship Colossus returned to me, on the 24th, from Cagliari, and brought 350 good troops: and I expect 800 more from Conti, in three or four days. The second division of Neapolitans, consisting of 2000, arrived last night, and the last 2000 were to leave Naples yesterday. His Sicilian Majesty has ma nifested the greatest readiness and zeal in fulfilling the treaty, and has confided his ships and troops solely to my disposal, which his Majesty has made known to me from under his own hand, I have good reason to expect General O'Hara will be here in a very few days, with 12 or 1500 men from Gibraltar : He will be welcome to us. I have the honour to be, & c. Philip Stephens, esq; HOOD. Brigadier- General Lord Mulgrave takes the earliest opportunity to return his most sincere thanks, and to offer the tribute of his warmest approbation to Captain Moncrieff, and the British officers and soldiers, as well as to Colonel Farass, Lieutenant- Colonel the Chevalier de Revel, to Major St. Etienne, and the officers and soldiers of the Sardinian troops why composed his co- lumn, and were most immediately under his command in the attack of the enemy's post yesterday. Lord Mulgrave is at a loss to express his sense of the intrepid spirit with which the officers and men encountered danger, and of the patience and fortitude with which they suffered fatigue, hunger, third, and the unavoid- able inconveniencies attending the difficult and pressing service to which they were suddenly called. Lord Mulgrave begs also to take the opportunity of giving his tribute of applause to the daring and judi- cious conduct, and to the important and effectual ser- vices rendered by Serjeant Moreno, of the Spanish ma- rine corps, who, accompanied by three brave soldiers of his corps, with infinite skill and gallantry, traced the line of march of the right column to within pistol- shot of the enemy's advanced guard. Lord Mulgrave begs also to be allowed, with great respect, to beat testimony of the able conduct of General Gravina, Bri- gadier Skirds, Brigadier- General Pignatelli, and to the gallantry of the officers and soldiers under the com- mand of those Generals, and most particularly to the Neapolitan grenadiers, whose well- directed fire, and steady approach on the left of the enemy's position, tended so much to the success of the day. Lord Mul- grave has received such reports from Governor Elphin- stone of the steady, active, and gallant conduct of the NBURGH ADVERTISE Britifh officers and soldiers and seamen, of the Spanish officers and soldiers, and of the regiment of Royal Louis, under the command of Colonel Count de Porto of the regiment of Majorca, who acted on the side of Fort Pharon and were not immediately within his view, as induces him to beg their acceptance of his sincere thanks for the timely and effectual diversion they made in favour of the other attack. Lord Mulgrave begs leave, on this occasion, to ex- press his grateful sense of the friendly and important assistance he has received, in many difficult moments, from Mr. Graham ; and to add his tribute of praise to the general voice of all the British and Piedmontese of- ficers of his column, who saw, with so much pleasure and applause, the gallant example which Mr. Graham set to the whole column in the foremost point of every attack. Lord Mulgrave assures his fellow- soldiers of the dif- ferent nations which compose the army of Toulon, that the general good conduct, of which he was yesterday a witness, can never be effaced from his memory.

Extract of a letter from Vice- Admiral LORD HOOD to Mr. Stephens, dated Victory, Toulon Read, October SIR, I BEG you will be pleased to make known to the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that, upon re- ceiving a pressing request from General Paoli for assist- ance, and informing me at the same time that even the appearance of a few ships would very essentially serve him, provided it should not be judging expedient to make an attack by them on any ot the forts, I therefore determined to send three ships of the line and two fri- gates to him; and, as the season was too far advanced for a second rate to go on that coast, I established Cap- tain Linzee as a Commodore, appointed Captain Wood- ley his Captain, and gave an order to Lord Amelius Beauclerk to command the Nemesis. Alcide, in the Gulph of St. Florenze, MY LORD, _ October 1, 1793. I HAVE the honour to inform your Lordship, that be- ing joined by the Ardent on the 21st ult. and it being deemed practicable to make an attack by sea upon the Tower and Redoubt of Fornili, ( a post at the distance of two miles opposite the town of Florenze) I immedi- ately gave the necessary orders for the squadron to ad, whenever the wind was sufficiently steady for that pur- pose. On the 24th the Courageux joined, with provi- sions from Leghorn ; and on the night of the 27th the launches of the squadron cut out a vessel, which has since been converted into a gun- boat. Having made several attempts ( between the 21st and 30th ult.) to attack the above posts, which were always frustrated by the wind dying away as soon as I drew into the Gulph; and ex. perience having pointed out the improbability of the wind's blowing steady in a Gulph or such depth, and surrounded by mountains of considerable height, it was deemed expedient to execute my intentions the follow- ing morning, by warping the Ardent, during the night, into a situation from whence she could not only annoy the redoubt, but cover the approach of the squadron. Cap- tain Sutton placed his ship with as much judgment and precision as if the service had been executed during the day, and at half past three A. M. opened a fire, which was kept up without intermission till near eight o'clock. By four o'clock the Alcide was in a situation to open her battery on the enemy's works, but being too close to the Ardent, and a flaw of wind filling the sails, en- dangered her shooting on the rocks, before she could be anchored with security. The sails were instantly thrown aback, and boats were employed, towing, to extricate her from this difficulty. Captain Mathews, R for 17JV Nov. 15, observing the Alcide's situation, very gallantly shot un- der her stern, to cover her, and, occupied the station I had intended to anchor in, As the situation of the Courageux prevented the Alcide from opening her fire, except at intervals, I ordered Captain Wolseley to carry out warps, to move us into a more eligible situation; which service was executed with great alacrity, and a spirited fire again opened on the enemy's posts. Although a close and powerful cannonade had been kept up by the squadron till a quarter before eight, no visible impression was made ; and Captain Sutton hav- ing reported the Ardent was much damaged, and that, in his opinion, there was no prospeCt of success ; and Captain Woodley ( who had been on board the Coura- geux, to inquire into the state of that ship) having brought a similar report from Captain Mathews, who, as well as Captain Wolseley and himself, agreed in the above opinion, I judged it advisable to make the signal for discontinuing the attack. The Alcide is not materially damaged in her masts or rigging, but the Ardent and Courageux have suffered considerably in both, from being exposed to the raking fire of the town of Florenze, though every information had assured me the distance from that place was too great for guns to have any effect Our failure is not only to be imputed to the false in- telligence respeCting the range of cannon from the town of Florenze, but to the want of ardour on the part of the Corsicans, who had faithfully promised to storm the posts on the land side, though they never made the smallest movement to effeCt that service dur- ing the aCtion. I inclose a list of the killed and wound- ed, and of the artillery opposed to the squadron ; and am happy in testifying my warmest approbation of the gallant manner in which every officer and man employ- ed on this occasion conducted himself. I am sorry to find Mr. Sheills, first lieutenant of the Courageux, is a- mongst the number killed, and have appointed Mr. Pe- ter Hunt, a very deserving young man to act as junior lieutenant of that ship, till your Lordship's pleasure is known. I have the honour to be, See. LORD Hood. ROB. LINZEE. A LIST of the KILLED and WOUNDED on board the different ships of the Squadron under my command.

SIR, I HAVE the honour to desire you will acquaint the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that a very successful sortie was made in the night of the 9th, and herewith transmit Captain Brereton's account of it to Lord Mulgrave. But the enemy has since ereCted ano- ther battery, about two hundred yards to the southward of the one destroyed, from which they have fired hea- vy cannon and shells all yesterday, and are now doing so, but as yet have done us very little mischief. I have the honour to be, & c. HOOD. Philip Stephens, Esq; Fort Mulgrave, Hauteur de Grasse, October 9, 1793. MY LORD, AGREEABLE to your Lordship's order and arrange- ments made for carrying them into execution yesterday morning, at half past twelve o'clock at night we moved from this post ; and, having formed a junction in the bottom with the marines and Piedmontese from the post of Cepet, we marched off from our right in one column, in order to insure the greater regularity in a night at- tack : our march to the top of the height, where the new ereCted batteries of the enemy had been construCt- ed, was performed with all possible order and expedi- tion, the troops observing the greatest silence, by which, with the aid of the French deserter, who answered the centinels of the enemy as we passed them, our advanced party arrived at the entrance into their first battery, perfectly undiscovered: the first centry having been put to death, the advanced party, computed of the grena- diers and light infantry of the line of British, under the command of Captain Stewart of the 25th regiment, very gallantly rushed in, and put every man to the bayonet that opposed them. The remainder of the enemy that could get off re- tired to their second battery, and, though most rapidly pursued, made a sort of stand ; but the greater part of the detachment by this time having taken different Po » • sitions of attack, the enemy were soon routed in all quarters, and, in a quarter of an hour after, we made Ourselves masters of all their batteries on this height, and the ordnance mounted thereon. In the first battery they had mounted two twenty- four pounders on garri- son carriages ; on the second battery they had one fine brass twenty- four pounder, mounted on a high travel- ling carriage, and two smaller guns ; and in a third bat- ery was mounted two thirteen inch mortars, with a great deal of ammunition, suitable for their different pieces of ordnance. On the road we found one light travelling six pounder. Immediately as the enemy re- tired and ceased firing, I posted the troops round the Center of the hill, and placed guards at the leading avenues to it, while Lieutenant Serocold of the navy, with the sailors, See. under his directions, set to work in destroying these different pieces of ordnance, by spiking the touch holes of the guns and mortars, and ramming balls into the guns, breaking up their car- riages, and destroying their ammunition. Had it been possible to have carried off any part of the above guns, & c. it should have been done; but, from the precipices we were necessarily obliged to descend, and the broken narrow paths we had occasion to pass, in order to avoid exposing ourselves by day- light to the fire of two heavy batteries of the enemy at the Windmills, I found it was impracticable even to carry off the field piece; neither did I think it right to hazard remaining with the de- tachment ( which did not exceed 408) on the height where the batteries were erected, there being no cover in the rear, and the force of the enemy immediately in our neighbourhood on heights above us equal to 12 or 1300 men, which might have cut us off before your Lordship could have sent a reinforcement to sustain us from Toulon. From these considerations, as soon as Lieutenant Se- rocold reported to me that he had rendered the diffe rent guns and mortars unserviceable, having collected our killed and wounded, we marched back from our left about half past four in the morning, and reached this post about six o'clock. Our loss on this enterprize of killed and wounded is herewith inclosed in a return, which, considering the strength of the position we at- tacked, that was defended by three hundred of the ene- my's best troops, is very inconsiderable; but, at the same time, is much to be lamented, as they were of the advanced guard of British, and the best of our troops. The loss of the enemy is far more considerable ; for we perceived in different places between twenty and thirty of them killed, but, from reports since from deserters, we learn they had upwards of fifty killed and as many wounded. We took a Captain Lamatalie of the Chas- seurs du Burgovne, a Lieutenant Chevalier of the 4th regiment of artillery, and twenty- three men, prisoners, who we brought with us to this post. I have the pleasure to inform your Lordship, that, in the operation of the march and attack, all the foreign troops employed co- operated most cordially. I have the honour to be, & c. ROBERT BRERETON, Captain, Commanding 2d battalion of British. British corps, 1 corporal, 3 privates, killed; 1 corporal, 6 privates, wounded. Whitehall, Nov. 9. The following dispatch was this day received at the Office of the Right Honourable Henry Dundas, his Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department: Toulon, October 10, 1793. SINCE my last dispatch of the 3d of October,* the enemy had completed three batteries opposite to the Hateur de Grasse, one at La Hauteur des Moulins, and two to the southward on the Hateur de Reinier. Vice- Admiral Lord Hood being apprehensive that the fleet might suffer some inconvenience from the batteries de Reinier; and information of the situation of the enemy, and of the approaches to the batteries, having been, re- ceived from an intelligent deserter, it was determined to make a sortie from the Hauteur de Grasse, on the 8th instant at night, for the purpose of destroying the ene- my's batteries. A detachment was ordered, composed of the British troops on that post, amounting to 225 rank and file, under the command of Captain Brereton of the 30th regiment, the Spanish grenadier company of the regiment of Hibernia, 50 men commanded by Brevet Lieutenant- Colonel Nugent, who also command- ed the sortie, a company of Piedmontese grenadiers of 50 men, and 50 Albanese Neapolitan troops. This corps marched at half past twelve o'clock at night, and were joined ( at a point agreed upon) at one o'clock in the morning, by the post of Les Sablettes, of a Captain and jo British marines, and a Captain and 50 Piedmon- tese Chasseurs ; the advanced guard of 50 British gre- nadiers, light infantry, and 10 grenadiers of Hibernia, Lord Mulgrave's dispatch of the 3d of this month has not been received. under the command of Captain Stewart of the 25th re- giment, Lieutenant Knight of the 11th regiment, and a subaltern officer of Hibernia, ( whose name has not been reported to me) surprised the enemy's post, attacked the first battery with their bayonets, put the whole guard to flight, and pursued the enemy with great slaughter into the second battery, supported by the whole de- tachment, which formed on the height, and remained till Lieutenant Serocold of the navy, with a party of sea- men, had taken measures to render the artillery of both batteries unserviceable, and had destroyed all the am- munition : the ground between Grasse and the Hauteur de Reinier was so intersected with ravines and walls as to render it impossible to bring off the mortars or guns. I inclose a list of the pieces of ordnance which were destroyed, and a return of the killed and wounded of his Majesty's troops. The whole loss fell upon the ad- vanced guard ; the officers and soldiers of which dis- tinguished themselves very particularly by their enter- prize, activity and spirit. The good order and steadi- ness of the whole detachment deserves the highest praise ; as well as the judicious conduct of the march, concerted by Lieutenant- colonel Nugent of the regi- ment of Hibernia, and Captain Brereton of the 30th regiment, under the orders of the Spanish Colonel O'- Neale, who commands at the post de Grasse. Deserters, who came in yesterday, report, the ene- my calculate their loss, in killed, wounded and missing, at near 20c men ; and that one of the mortars had split in their endeavours to clear it.

The Jury, declaring; they were satisfied with the evi- dence adduced against them, went to deliberate upon their verdict, and soon returned with the following unanimous verdiCt: " 1. There has existed a conspiracy against the uni- ty and indivisibility of the Republic, and against the Liberty and safety of the French nation. " 2. All the individuals hereunto named, viz. Brissot Vergniaux, Gensonne, & c. & c. stand convicted as the authors or accomplices of the said conspiracy." The Judge pronounced the following sentence : " The Revolutionary Tribunal condemns to the pain of death, the individuals above- mentioned; it de- clares that their property is confiscated for the profit of the Republic ; it ordains that the sentence shall be exe- cuted on the square de la Revolution Valaze, one of the deputies, having quietly heard the sentence, rose from his stool, and stabbed himself to the heart, and expired The Tribunal immediately gave orders, that the corpse of the deceased be conveyed separately on a cart to the square de la Revolution, exhibited on the scaffold, and buried on the same spot. On Thursday, Oct. 31, the condemned Deputies- were conveyed from the Conciergerie to the place of execution. While passing along to the Square de la Re- volution, they entered into an able and eloquent debate respeCting the immortality of the soul they all agreed that the body perished, and the soul would survive. " Master Samson," ( the Parisian Jack Ketch), say the French Journals, " decided the former question; and Brissot with his comrades is gone into the other' world, to seek the solution of the latter!" The heads of the twenty remaining condemned De- puties were struck off, between eleven and twelve o'clock in the- morning of the 31st of OCtober. In the space 0f thirty seven minutes, not only all the heads of the Ex- Deputies were struck off, but their graves and those of federalism were dug, and their bodies interred! The following are the Members of the Convention who suffered: , Brissot, Vergniaux, Gensonne, Duperet, Carra, Gardien, Valaze, Duprat, Sillery, " Fauchet, ( a Bishop), Ducos, Boyer- Fonfrede, Lasource, ( a Protestant Mins- ster,) Lesterp Beauvais, Duchatel, Mainvieille, Lacaze, Lehardi, Boileau, Antiboul, and Vigie. They all preserved a solemn firmness, and indivi- dually at the moment of being stretched upon the ma- chine, exclaimed Vive la Republic ! Vive la Nation ! Brissot himself, except on this occasion, was sullen and silent. Sillery was most obsequious to the speCta- tors : he bowed on every side, and smiled. Fauchet, the Constitutional Bishop, was attended by a confessor, with whom he was much engaged in very serious discourse. Carra appeared indifferent, said little, and looked con- temptuosly. Duchatel, Ducos, Fonfrede, and Le- hardi, distinguished themselves by the firmness and in- trepidity of their looks. Lafource, who was formerly a minister of the PRO- testant church, expressed much penitence. Thus perished, through the influence of that Con- vention which abolished Royalty, the very men who stood the foremost in the work of establishing Republi- canism on its ruins, and who were at the time, the most inveterate enemies of the King, whom they have so soon followed to the scaffold! In the history of nations, this event, which at one stroke, has brought twenty- one MEMBERS of the CON- VENTION, and REPRESENTATIVES of the PEOPLE to the Scaffold, will form an epoch without a parallel; it will appear to the cool investigator of faCts as the effect of absolute madness having possessed a whole people, at the same time the Religionist will be led to reflect on. the awful justice of the Divinity, in giving up to the punishment of each other, those who dared openly, and as It were by a national act, to dispute even his right to reign ! At the present moment, the observer, whose lot it is to live the witness of such an unhappy period, is lost in the contemplation of these unprecedented proceed- ings ; an attempt to reason upon the probable events of the morrow is in vain; it should even appear, that the politics of France were made the instrument of the Di- vine Visitation upon all the nations of Europe. Besides the above victims, the Revolutionary Tribu- nal has sentenced to the guillotine, a priest of the name of Sannier, convicted of emigration; and to be exposed, tied to a stake, a Lady, formerly a Superior of the Nuns of Hotel DieU, at Blois, for having entertained and lodged him. As one of the groupe in this scene of horror, the imagination of our readers will contemplate, with some . return of satisfaCtion, the infernal Egalite, why is length lodged in tha cell which lately contained the devoted objeCt of his malicious aspersions the murder FRIDAY'S POST. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE, Nov, VICTORY OVER THE FRENCH. Whitehall, November 13. BY a dispatch from the Earl of Yarmouth, dated the 28th of October, it appears, that on the 25th of that month, the right wing of the enemy was com- pletely routed, with the loss of fourteen cannon, a great quantity of military stores, two howitzers, all the camp equipage, and an important position at Wanzenan, of which General Wurmser immediately took possession : That the Austrians were attacked on every side on the 27th, but that the enemy was compelled to retreat; and that the loss of the latter on the two days was comput - ed at 3000 killed, wounded and taken. From the LONDON PAPERS, Nov. it. COLOGNE, Nov. 5. The Allies are successful in their operations in Al- sace.

At the moment I am closing my letter, news has been received from Worms, dated the 1st of Novem- ber, of great importance On the 30th ultimo, the garrison of Landau sent five flags of truce to the be- sieging army. The bombardment ceased on the morn- ing of the 31st, on account of offers having been made to capitulate. In the afternoon the garrison surrender- ed prisoners of war. FRANCE. EXECUTION BRISSOT AND HIS FRIENDS. REVolutionARY TRIBUNAL, PARIS, OCt. 30. The Jacobins sent Deputies to the trial of the Ex- Deputies, to take down in writing, their whole exami- nation. As soon as they found the trial would draw to a conclusion, one of the Jacobin emissaries of the name of Roussel, hastened to announce the event to the Club, in the following words : " I just come from the Revo- lutionary Tribunal. Antonelle declared that the Jury Were satisfied with the evidence. Lehardi, Valaze, and another, demanded to speak ; but their request be- ing resisted, they begged to be allowed to distribute their defence to the Jury ; they were at last permitted to deliver it to the Serjeants of the Tribunal, who were charged to deliver it." [ Great applauses. October .30, at eleven o'clock at night, the trial of Brissot and his accomplices was terminated. m ed Antoinette. He is in the Conciergerie, from which it is but a short stage to the guillotine. Kellerman, and a great many other conspicuous cha- racters, have been committed to the Abbaye. By the Conventional stting of the 31st ult. it appears that the Goths of France, have actually set about de- molishing the magnificent city of Lyons. Five hun- dred workmen are thus employed. In the same sitting it was decreed, that the women should no longer be permitted to assemble in clubs. . In the Sitting of the 1st of November, Isore, Com- missioner with the army of the North, stated, that they would not engage the army of the Prince of Saxe- Cobourg, merely because that Prince wished it. Deputies from the Jacobin Society were admitted to the bar, and stated, that being filled with indignation at the delays in trying criminals by the Revolutionary Tribunal, they requested, that the Convention would lay aside firms, which were slow, and not Revolution- ary. This proposal was received with loud applauses, and the Convention decreed,- that every discussion on a criminal affair before the Revolutionary Tribunal, should cease the moment the jury declared they were satisfied. The Fishwomen who acted so conspicuous a part in. bringing about the Revolution, will probably have a great share in its destruCtion. Those dangerous Ladies insult the news- carriers of the patriotic papers, espe cially that diabolical production called Le Pere Du- chesne. One hundred of them seized a vender of that paper, and swore to strangle him, if he uttered a word : they then pelted him with mud. The female citizen Olympia Gouges has been guillo tined, notwithstanding her pleading pregnancy. The bloody speCtacle of the guillotine seems to en rage the people. On the same day when Valaze stab bed himself, a national light- horseman, condemned to die, flung himself over the ballustrades of the Revolu- tionary Tribunal, and would infallibly have stabbed the Judge, had he not been disarmed. A great number of cutlasses have been found in the Conciergerie, and the Jacobins seem inwardly to tremble for their safety. Madame Mirabeau, the mother of the famous Mi- rabeau, is committed to prison, as a measure of public safety. The last return of prisoners at Paris, is 3,222 . Brutus stated, in the Club of Cordeliers, the suicide committed by Valaze and the discovery made of a great number of cutlasses in the Conciergerie, and moved, that a petition should be presented to the Convention, requesting, that all criminals who should appear before the Revolutionary Tribunal, should have their hands tied, in order to prevent any attempt on their own lives, or on the lives of any persons present. The motion was agreed to. The army was at Tournay, when the last accounts came away. Mr. Elliot, the British Minister at the Hague, pre- sented the British Declaration on the 18th ult. to Their High Mightinesses, who published a resolution on the igth, declaring their perfect assent and concurrence in the sentiments of His BRITANNIC MAJESTY, and their resolution of prosecuting the war for the same ends which are expressed in the said Declaration. The STATES also voted thanks to Mr. Elliot for the said communication, intreating his Excellency to acquaint the British Ministry with the result of their deliberations. Letters were received yesterday at the Admiralty from Lord Howe's fleet which were all well off Scilly. It is reported, that the Thames frigate, of 31 guns, is captured by the French, and carried into Brest. The devaluation which the French occasioned from Furnes to beyond Menin, can hardly be expressed. They totally destroyed twenty towns and villages. They Carried away a very great number of cattle of all kinds which formed the principal riches of the people of West Flanders.- They were followed by more than 400 empty waggons, which they filled not only with provisions, but also with the furniture of the Wretched inhabitants. At Menin, after plundering the churches" and houses, they carried away the bells, and even the music bells. In short, wherever they went they plun- dered and set fire to the houses, the unfortunate owners of which fled different ways to seek an asylum against " A brig belonging to Barbadoes, bound from St. Eusta- tia, is taken and carried into the Chesapeak. " The Olive, Pennant, from liverpool, is taken by a French frigate, and carried into Brest. " The Pierson, , from Bilboa to Jersey, is taken by a French frigate off Ushant. " Winds at Deal, Nov. 8. S. 0 S, 10 SttT. blows hard, 1J W." L O N D O N. A report prevailed yesterday in the city, that the mob there had risen upon the Convention and put them all to death ! A great change of sentiment had taken place in the Poissardes— a very formidable body in that distraCted metropolis ; and from what we have already seen, no sucCeeding event that bears any relation to France can create any very great emotion of surprise. We have received papers from Paris as late as the '. th instant, which make no mention of such an event having then happened. It was yesterday reported, that a cessation of hostili- ties had been agreed upon between the Prince Saxe- Co- burg and General Jourdain. This proceeded, it is said, from Jourdain's having received advice, that the populace rose in consequence of the execution of Bris- sot and his party, surroundad the Convention, and put them to death.' We have also been informed, bv a let- ter dated the 25th of October, that an aCtion had taken place at Toulon, since those mentioned in the Gazette, in which the Allies had a complete victory. Stocks rose yesterday, in consequence of these rumours, one and a half per cent. The Royalists at Laval have driven back some Na- tional troops lent against them, after killing a very great ' number. The Brussels Journal General de la Guerre of the 6th inst- mentions an action on the 2d, in the environs of St. Gerard, between the Sambre and the Meuse - General Beaulieu repulsed the French three, times—- Nevertheless the French rallied and returned to the charge— They were at length finally repulsed with the loss of three hundred men. Our private letters from Cologne informs us of the surrender of the important fortress of Landau. The surrender is also mentioned in the Brussels Journal Ge neral de la Guerre. It is now settled, that the Duke of York's head- quar- ters, for the winter, are to be established at Ghent.— EDINBURGH. It is remarkable, that the twenty- one Deputies, Mem- BERS of the COnVeNTIOn who were executed on the 31st ult. ( see page 317), died calling out, Vive la Re- public"! The principal difference betwixt them and the present rulers, was, that Brissot And his friends declar- ed, for a Federal Republic, in place of a Republic one and indivisible. Brissot, Vergniaux, and the other Deputies who have been guillotined, Were long the chief leaders, and ablest speakers in the Convention, of which they had all been Presidents.. In the wretched country of France one horrid event succeeds another so rapidly; that reflection is lost in astonishment. Scarcely is the murdered QUEEn cold in her grave, when Twenty one MEMBERS of the Con- VENTIOn are consigned by their fellow Deputies, ( ac- cording to Philosophy,) to the Eternal Sleep of Death I But what else can be expected from a nation which has laid aside every idea of Religion, and ba- nished every obligation Moral and Divine ? The principal accusation against Brissot and his friends, was, that they had adopted the same means with Pitt— to dissolve the Convention— to assasinate the Members and the Patriots— to destroy Paris— to arm all nations against France— to partition France, and make the Duke of York King of part of it— and of pro- ducing the destruCtion of the French Colonies. Letters are received in town, which mention the re- port of a massacre at Paris , in which the leaders of the Convention were destroyed. A day or two will as- certain the truth of this report. In the mean time, stocks have risen more than one per cent. France, as if they had not already enough of ene- mies, has declared war against the Republic of Genoa. Yesterday forenoon, about eleven o'clock, Mr. MuiR, younger of Huntershill, under sentence of transportation for sedition, was taken from the Tol- booth, and conveyed in a coach to Newhaven, where he was sent on board the Royal George Excise yacht, Captain Ogilvie, now in Leith roads, for London. There were sent along with him, John Grant, who was . convicted of forgery at Inverness Circuit— John Stir- ling, who petitioned for transportation, being concern- ed in robbing Nellfield house; Bearhope, con- cerned in stealing watches, and who also petitioned for banishment— and James Mackay, lately condemned to death for street robbery, but who afterwards obtained his Majesty's pardon. They were attended by some peace officers. NEW YORK, October _ " The yellow fever still rages at Philadelphia; it sweeps off 50 a- day ; all business is at an end. Four thousand have paid the debt to nature' at Philadelphia ; the inhabitants, in general, have fled ; the weather con- tinues intensely hot; no equinoxial gale, nor any ap- pearance of the north- west wind setting in. In the common course of things, however, the north- western wind will set in soon, attended with frost during the night, which will, in all probability, check the pro- gress of this direful scourge. Not more than 15,000 of the inhabitants remain in the city."
