WHITEHALL, NOV. 14 The dispatch, of which the following is an extract, was this morning received at the Office of the Right Hon. Henry Dundas, his Majesty's Principal Secre- tary of State for the Home Department. SIR, Toulon, Oct. 3, 1793. IN my dispatch of the 24th of September I had the honour to inform you, that the enemy had been more aCtive than previous to that period ; they occasionally cannonadcd our different posts, and had approached bodies of men to various points, to attract our atten- tion. On the 30th of September, at night, they en- tered upon a daring and desperate project, that met with a most unaccountable success, which fortunately was not of long duration. The post of Faron being the point at which the ene- my determined to make an attempt to render them- selves matters of Toulon, they carried their design into execution on the night of the 30th of September. The piquet of 60 men, being driven from the Pas de la Masque about day- break, retired to the redoubt of Faron, which they found abandoned by the Spanish gar- rison that had been placed in it. The enemy some time after took possession of the redoubt, and of the whole summit of this almost inaccessible mountain. By the possession of the redoubt of Faron their communication was open with La Valette, and with La Garde, where the Head Quarters of General Gardane are established ; from both which places they received considerable re- inforcements. The fort of Faron, which is below the redoubt, having made the signal of being pressed by the enemy, and in want of immediate succour, Go- vernor Elphinstone added Captain Torriano, with 92 men of the 30th regiment, to the garrison of that post. At about seven o'clock in the morning of the itt of October, the report came to Toulon, that the enemy were in possession of the whole summit of the mountain of Faron. The absolute necessity of an immediate attack of this post being obvious, the most practicable means of regaining the summit of the mountain, in the face of an enemy, who were hourly receiving re- inforcements, and who were prepared for their de- fence, became the only subject of discussion. Admiral Gravina, Brigadier- General Squierdo of the Spanish troops, Brigadier- General Prince de Pignatelli com- manding the Neapolitan troops, Lieutenant- Colonel Chevalier de Revel, Governors Goodall, Elphinstone, and myself, having assembled at the Government House, and having consulted intelligent persons ac- quainted with the possible accesses to the mountain on the side of Toulon, it was determined to make the attempt on the Western side. The troops of the gar- rison having been assemhled on the parade during the time of our deliberation, 1 detached Captain Beres- ford, of the 69th regiment, with 50 men, to Fort Fa- ron, to co- operate under the command of Governor Elphinstone, in case any opportunity should offer of making a diversion on the side of the redoubt of Fa- ron, in favour of our main attack, if we should be so fortunate as to reach the summit of the mountain, which is 1718 feet above the level of the sea. The British troops upon guard at ihe gate of the town having been relieved, i was enabled to collect 250 British rank and file, to which I added 140 chas- seurs and 163 - grenadiers of the Piedmontese troops ( the remainder being dispersed in distant posts). This corps composed the column under my command,' destined to ascend the face of the mountain from the fort of Grand St. Antoine. ( I had also ordered 500 Neapolitan troops of the regiment du Bourgogne to join my column; but, from the difference of lan- guage, some mistake occurred in the delivery ol the orders, and those troops did not join me.) The co- lumn of Admiral Gravina, which took its route to- wards the Vallon de Valbourdin to ascend by that pass, was composed of two companies of Piedmontese chas- seurs, 143 Spanish rank and file, 400 Neapolitan grenadiers, and a detachment of 100 men of the regi- ment de Bourgogne ; Brigadier- Generals Squierdo and Pignatelli went with this column. The two co- lumns marched from Toulon at eight o'clock. At the redoubt of Grand St. Antoine I formed the troops under my immediate command in alternate hundreds of British and Piedmontese, directing them to keep in small platoons, as nearly in a line as possible during their ascent, and to form to the first party that should ar- rive at ihe summit. An advanced party of 200 of the enemy appeared at the top of the mountain, and gave their fire at a great distance, retiring immedi- ately, and allowing the troops to gain the height with no other obstacle than that which the rugged and al- most perpendicular acclivity presented ; the labour and fatigue of the ascent being considerably increased by the great heat of the day. The column of General Gravina gained the top of the mountain soon after us, without having met with any resistance. Captain Moncrief, who led the right division of my column, pushed across the mountain, and possessed himself of the Pas de le Masque, which had been abandoned by the enemy. The top of the mountain of Futon is intersected by a succession of transversal heights, of steep ascent from the West, and rising successively to the easternmost extremity of the mountain, where the redoubt of Faron is placed. We found the enemy drawn up on the front of this last ridge. The rock to the North, on the right of the position taken by the enemy, ends in a precipice above the Vallon de Fa- vieres ; the ground which lay between the right of the enemy and the column under my command is a low ridge, forming the narrow head of a deep valley, which descends to the Southward, widening itself by a gradual turn to the Eastward, it as_ to form a stcep side to the left flank of the enemy's position, and end- ing on the flat summit of an interior ridge of the mountain, directly above the town of Toulon. The enemy were formed in a line on the front of - the eminence, and within musket- shot of our poiition. In front of the right of the enemy's principal line, and on the crest of the ridge which forms the head of the valley, they had an advanced guard of about 50 men ; in the rear of their right flank, which did not reach up to the precipice, a body of abouy 200 men were placed en echellon ; a consider- able body was placed en potence behind the left of their line ; and in front of their left flank was placed an advanced guard, similar to that on the right 5 in the rear, half way between the redoubt and the first line, a strong column was placed in reserve ; and the parapet of the Redoubt was lined with men. The post of the enemy commanded very considerably every part of the position which we were obliged to oc- cupy. The left column, under my command, ar- rived first in presence of the enemy. I placed the greatest part of it under cover of a rising ground, be- hind the narrow crest of the valley over which I was to pass, when the attack should be made. The co- lunn, of General Gravina being soon after also in pre- sence of the enemy, he formed his line 0n an height, which extended beyond the left of the enemy's posi- tion, and was separated from the height on which I had taken post by a branch of the great valley, run- ning to the Westward, and forming a dip between the posts occupied by our respeCtive divisions. I imme- diately sent notice of our being in presence of the enemy ( by an Officer, who was obliged to make a considerable circuit) to Governor Elphinstone, who was a Fort Faron. A brisk fire, begun by the advanced posts of the enemy, took place at this time between them and Ge- ereral Gravina's line, and a fire also commenced on the side of Fort Faron by the corps under the command of Colonel del Porto, against the potence ( or return line) of rhe enemy's position, which could not how- ever, at that time, produce its effect, and was soon after very judiciously discontinued. As I could plainly perceive from the post I occupied that no im- pression could be made from a fire across the deep part of the valley, and that there was a defeCt in the dis- position of the enemy's left, I went to the right, to communicate my observations to Geneial Graviua j and it was then agreed that the corps under the com- mand of that General should descend, by its right, into the valley, and march, under cover of the ascent on the left of the enemy, to attack them on that flank, which they had injudiciously placed upon the extreme summit of the hill, so as not to have the com- mand of the whole descent, as they might have had by placing themselves a little below the brow. It was agreed also, that the left column, under my command, should endeavour to attract the attention of the enemy during this movement, and that when General Gra- vina should have attained a certain point, 1 should move forward, and the general attack be made. On my return to the left ( General Gravina having already began his movements), I produced my whole force to the view of the enemy. The operation answered to our utmost wish. The enemy marched reinforcements to the right of their line, and appeared in expectation of an immediate attack from my column ; during this period General Gravina proceeded down the valley, and came unperceived to the side ot the hill occupied by the enemy ; the line of march round this steep and rocky ascent being explored, with infinite intrepidity and judgment, by Serjeant Moreno, of the Spanish Marines, and three soldiers of his corps, to within pistol shot of the enemy's line. The whole crest of the Mountain of Faron being a hard grey rock, without vegetation, and in some parts broken into sharp and loose pieces, which render walking very difficult, the march ot General Gravina's column was necessarily slow: As soon as he had got to the point agreed upon, the British of my column, led by Captain Montcrief of the 11th regiment, and preceded by Thomas Graham, Esq, ot Balgeroon ( a Gentleman of independent fortune, who was attracted to Toulon by the extraordinary event of its bring in our pos- session, to whose abilities on many occasions here, and to whose distinguished and exemplary gallantry 011 this occasion the service has been infinitely indebted), and the Piedmontese Chasseurs, led by Lieutenant Colonel the Chevalier de Revel, advanced in two columns, supported by the Piedmontese Grenadiers, under Colonel the Comte de Forax, the ridge being too narrow to admit of a line. A very heavy fire from the greatest part of the enemy's line checked our progress for a short period at somewhat less than half the way, between the ground from which we had ad- vanced and the enemy's post. Here a continued fire was kept up between the enemy and the British and Piedmontese troops, under every disadvantage on our part of a most exposed and confined situation. The column of General Gravina in the mean time ad- vanced in excellent order, under cover of the hill ; the two compan'us of Piedmontese Chasseurs, with the Neapolitan Grenadiers and Spanish troops, advancing with a regular progress, and well supported fire, to- wards the left of the enemy's line, whilst the detach- ment from Fort Faron, under Colonel Comte del Porto, recommenced their attack, which they made a real one, instead of a mere diversion, as at first in- tended. At this instant the advanced part of General Gravina's column having nearly gained the brow of the hill, 1 perceived the left of the enemy's line begin to waver, and crowd together, and ordered the British and Piedmontese under my command to rush forward, which they did with the utmolt spirit and alacrity, under an heavy and galling fire of the enemy, which, however, was of very short duration, for the whole line of the enemy, with their different corps of reserve ( 400 of their troops having abandoned the Redoubt before the conclusion of the aCtion) were thrown into confusion, and the rout became general; several were killed in the pursuit, but a very considerable ! number indeed were destroyed by pressing each other over the precipice in their flight; 75 of their dead were collected, without descending into the valley to which they fell from the precipice An Officer and 60 prisoners were taken, and, by accounts since receiv- ed from deserters, but one quarter of their original num- ber have rejoined their forces. The most moderate cal- culation upon the accounts of the prisoners and deserters, Hates their numbers to have been from 1800 o 2000 men, all troops of the line, and the flower of La Bar s army. Our loss has been inconsiderable, compared with the difficulty, and hazard of the enterprize. I have to re- gret the loss of Lieutenant the Chevalier Fabar, of the Piedmontese Chasseurs, a gallant, active, and in- telligent young officer, who was killed at the com- mencement ot the first attack made by my column. The whole army heard with regret that General Gra- vina, in the course of his able and spirited exertions at the head of the Neapolitan grenadiers, received a wound in the leg, which obliged him to retire from the field ; I am happy, however, to add, that the wound is not likely 10 be attended with any serious consequences : his place was ably supplied by the cou- rage and conduCt of Brigadier General Chevalier Squierdo and Prince Pignatelli. I inclose a list of the killed and wounded of the different nations; the chief loss has fallen upon the column under my command, from the very exposed situation in which the attack was necessarily made, and where the British and Pied- montese troops justified the mutual confidence which each seemed to repose in the steady support of the other. Indeed, Sir, I should do injustice were I to particularize any corps or any nation, where all were so equally meritorious , not only in the intrepid firm- ness with which the whole of this brave body of men encountered the dangers of a difficult and almost des- perate attempt, but tor the patient fortitude also with which they bore hunger, thirst, and fatigue, the troops having received only a small portion of bread at the time they marched from out of the town, and being ( from the want of necessary supplies at Toulon) without canteens, no officer or soldier had a drop of water to refresh him during the space of 12 hours, in a laborious march up precipices supposed inaccessible, and over rugged rocks, exposed to the heat of a burn- ing sun, reflected strongly by the nature of the ground. I can only say, that the mutual esteem and applause which the troops of the different nations so strongly manifest towards each other, is the most honourable panegyrick that can be bestowed upon them. I have the Honour to be, witii great refpeCt, Sir, your most obedient, and humble Servant, MULGRAVE, Acting Brigadier General. Here follows the return of the killed, wounded, and miffing on the Mountain of Faron in the attack of the 1st of OCtober, 1793, viz. British. 1 Serjeant, 3 rank and file, killed; 1 cap- tain, 1 subaltern, 24 rank and file, wounded ; 3 rank and file, missing. Piedmontese. 1 Subaltern, 4 rank and file, killed ; 1 Major, 2 Captains, 2 Lieutenants, 28 rank and file; wounded. Spanish Infantry. 1 General Officer, 4 Subalterns, 2 rank and file, wounded. Neapolitan Grenadiers. 1 Subaltern, 1 Serjeant, 8 rank and file, killed ; 1 General Officer, 1 Field Officer, 3 Captains, 5 Subalterns, 2 Serjeants, 59 rank and file, wounded ; 3 rank and file, missing. I inclose a copy of the account I received from Go- vernor Elphinstone of the attack made to the Eastward of Fort Faron. 03, 6. Last night a reinforcement of 355 Pied- montese troops arrived from Sardinia. The second division of Neapolitan troops, consisting of tooo men, is arrived in the harbour. MULGRAVE, Act. Brig. Gen. La Malgue, 03. 4, 1793. My LORD, IN conformity to the plan fixed on for our joint ope rations, I went up to Fort Faron, and by shewing the head of different columns cf the troops, kept the enemy constantly jealous of an immediate attack on the right, and kept up a well- direCted fire from three twelve pounders 0n the redoubt; but It was not only my own opinion, but that of all the officers com- manding corps, that a direct attack in a work so situ- ated and full of men was impracticable ; 1 therefore ordered four parties, of 60 men each, to be ready to climb up the hill the moment General Gravina and your Lordship should advance 011 the top of the moun- tain, and a column of loo to follow and support them, without firing until they should arrive at the summit, and a party to turn the hill lower down on the right, to cut off or impede the retreat, and all the guns ot the Fort to fire about 50 yards in front of the uo ps, and to stop the moment 1 should maike a signal. This plan was admirably executed, and I hope produced the best effeCt ; Conde del Peresta, Colonel of the- re- giment of Majorca, distinguished himself much in conducting the attack. Captains Torriano of the 3oth, and Beresford of the 69th, had infinite merit tor the intrepid manner they led their men up lo an almost inaccessible mountain, under a seVere fire. The commandant of ihe Neapolitan troops, and Major Heustein, of the Regiment of Royal Louis, were not less distinguished 0n this occasion, and the whole be- haved with exemplary firmness. Lieut. Alexander, of the navy, and Capt. Dexter, of the marines, per- formed most material services by the well directed fire from guns 011 the enemy's troops and works. I have the honour to be your Lordship's, & c. G. K. ELPHINSTONE. WHITEHALL, NOV, 15. By letters from Vice- Admiral Lord Hood and Bri- gadier General Lord Mulgrave to Mr. Secretary Dundas, dated Toulon, the 24th and 27th of last month, brought by Captain Cook of the Royal Navy, it appears, that Lieutenant General O'Hara, appointed by his Majesty Governor of that garrison and its de- pendencies, had arrived 011 the last- mentioned day from Gibraltar. It also appears, that the first batta- lion of the Royals, the 18th Regiment, and a bat- talion of the Royal Artillery, had arrived at Toulon with General O'Hara ; and that no event of conse- quence had occurred. That the enemy continued to work at some distance from Toulon, but that they had not opened any new batteries, excepting a small one or two eight pounders and a mortar above Fort Pomet ; which it was expected would be silenced by some heavy guns which were to be brought against it. That intelligence had been received of the capture of Lyons, from which it was expected that the enemy wouid receive considerable re- inforcements. [ This Gazette also contains his Majesty's order in Council that no ship or vessel, laden with any sort of corn, meal, or flour, which shall be exportable, shall be permitted to clear out from any port of this king- dom, until the merchant exporter of such corn, meal, or flour, shall have made oath of the true destination of the same ] BANKRUPTCY SUPERSEDED.

This morning the Saunita, a new- built ship, carrying 74 guns, and com- manded by Count de la Tour, sailed for Toulon with a convoy of troops and artillery ; the troops consist of 1560 men fully equipped, besides a detachment of artillerymen. Turin, 03. 23. We have accounts that Gil- leta is taken by our troops, together with the posts on the neighbouring heights. This is stated to have happened on the 17th. On the same day the van of the army under the Duke of Aosta took Desferres and Bojone, situate not far from the mouth of the Var, We also learn that a detachment of our troops attacked the French ( who fled to Brook, in Provence, near the sea), and after a stout re- sistance defeated them, and took that place, with their artillery. Other accounts say, that one of our advanced posts at Montar above Giaudola, was attacked by a detachment of the enemy, greatly su- perior in number, with a quantity of artillery, and that our troops were obliged to give way to the superior numbers of the French; but that our's getting upon a height, attacked the enemy with so much vigour that they killed 100 men, and obliged them to evacuate the place. Rome, 03. zj. It is said, that 2000 Papal troops, horse and foot, will shortly be sent to Toulon to act with the allied army. The Pope is still confined with a complaint in his leg. Brussels, Nov. 12. The Prince de Cobourg, as a testimony of his satisfaCtion at the con- duCt of the Legion of Caineville in the different aCtions in which it has been concerned since its creation, has prefented to M. de Carneville, the Colonel Proprietor of that Legion, in the name of the Emperor, two pieces of cannon, part of the three pieces which that Legion took on the 16th of October. These pieces are to belong to that corps, which is to be doubled at the expence of his Majesty. His Royal Highness the Duke of York has established his head- quarters at Tournay. His Royal Highness lodges at the Abbey of Sr. Martin. The camp of Cisoing is raised, and is going to enter into cantonments. The heavy artillery, placed under the walls of that city, forms a grand Park, and has a noble appear- | ance. They have begun to fence in Tournay with palisades. The prisoners taken at Mar- chiannes set off the 9th inst. for Ostend, from whence they are to embark for England. Monsieur, brother to the unfortunate Louis the XVIth, has been acknowledged Regent by Spain and England. A courier is arrived at Ham for the purpose of obtaining from Mon- sieur, the Regent, Commissions for the officers of the regiments which are forming at Toulon. The first column of the Hessian and Darm- stadt troops which are on their way for the Low Countries, were expeCted at Tirlemont on tie 9th, from whence it will proceed, by Tirle- mont, to West Flanders. Luxembourgh, Nov. 6. The Carmagnols are continually making irruptions on the frontiers of this province. Virton has been pillaged, sacked, and destroyed ; above 50 waggon- loads of furniture have been carried off, ard above 6000 head of cattle, which the unfortu- nate peasants were compelled to drive into France. LONDON.. His Royal Highness Prince Adolphus in- tends to leave Windsor on Thursday, to join the Duke of York on the Continent; Field Marshal Freytag, with several Hanoverian offi- cers now in England, will accompany his Highness. Late last night a Messenger arrived at White- hall with letters and dispatches from the Duke of York's army. Nothing of consequence had occurred. By certain advices from the Royalists, we learn that they are in great force, though acting at present upon the defensive, and in separate parties.— The period is probably r. ot far distant when they will concentrate their force, and effectuate something decisive of the fate of France. We have in our possession Paris Papers down to the nth inst. inclusive. That of the nth contains the very important intelligence of great advantage gained by the Royalists of La Vendee. They are in possession of May- enne, Ernne ar. d Fougeres, places in Nor- mandy, where they now are. The two first were carried without much resistance, but the last was the scene of a very obstinate engagement, which terminated in a complete victory in fa- vour of the Royalists. This took place on the 3d.— Their army was advancing by forced marches towards Rennes. On the 11th the process of Bailly was ter- minated before tbe Revolutionary Tribunal.— He was condemned to die. Duquesnoy, one of the Commissioners with the Northern Army, had suspended several of the officers. General Davesne is arrested. On the 8th, Madame Roland was con- demned to suffer death. She behaved with such firmness of spirit that the Judges thought proper to order her to be silent. On the same day Lamarche was condemned. This man was formerly Head Administrator 0f the Office of Assassins. Five Municipal Officers of the Community of Pont de Ce, accused of having carried on a correspondence with tlje Royalists, were executed on the same day, in the Square of the Revolution, Duhem deposed at the trial of the Brissotine party, that being present on the 3d of Septem- ber 1792, at an entertainment of 60 person sat Petion's house, when Mayor of Paris, the guests appeared to be for an instant seized with horror, on seeing 15 Septemberisers come into the room all covered with blood.—" It is nothing, Ladies and Gentlemen," replied one of them very coolly)—" We could even dispatch 60 more." g Well," replied Petion, " do as you please." I — He then very deliberately returned to the stable, and swallowed a glass of ice cream. Egalite has left behind him four children, three sons and a daughter. The eldest, ci- devant Due de Chartres, escaped with Dumou- rier; the other two sons, whose titles were, the Due de Montpensier, and Count de Beaujo- lois, are prisoners, have been arrested with the other Members of the Bourbon family. Mademoiselle D'Orleans is with Madame Genlis, the wife of Sillery, now in Switzer- land. Letters from Brussels mention, that Monsieur, brother of the unfortunate Louis XVI. will be acknowledged Regent by Spain and England. A Courier is arrived at Ham, charged to solicit of the Regent commissions for the officers of the regiments forming at Toulon. On Saturday a Commission passed the Great Seal, appointing Major General O'Hara Com- mander in Chief of his Majesty's forces at Toulon. On Saturday a Board was held at the Admi- ralty Office, Charing Cross, when a frigate of 32 guns was ordered to be put in commission. Mr. Tayler, of Lloyd's Coffee- House, has publicly declared, that the Hankey has not discharged any part of her cargo, and that he has every reason to believe she will not be per- mitted to unload in the River. Thames. He likewife states, that the crew are in perfect health, and were so during the voyage. We hope this declaration will appease the public anxiety upon this subject. A letter from Havre de Grace, dated Nov. s, says, " A Courier has brought an order to set at liberty all the English, who contribute, by their industry, to enrich France ; they are set free, and their property will be restored to them." .

Mr. Erskine moved for a rule to shew cause why a criminal information should not be filed against Sir William Yeo, a Magistrate in the West of England. The learned Counsel said, he moved this on an affidavit of Mr. Harvey, the prosecutor, who stated a tranfaction which he was persuaded their Lordships would not think consonant to the dignity and integrity of the Magistracy. Mr. Harvey stated, that he had employed two labourers who had left their work, and had so demeaned themselves as to be amenable to the statute ; that he took them before Sir Wil- liam Yeo to answer for their conduct ; that he came there about twelve o'clock in the fore- noon, and was detained very late before he had an opportunity of geting home; when he was accosted by Mr. Yeo, the son of the Magistrate, who charged him with having stolen four eggs. Mr. Harvey protested his innocence, and denied the charge. Nothing more was said on this business till the warrant was returnable, when Mr. Harvey attended before the Magistrate to have justice done on these two men, and one of whom only attended. Justice was done upon him, and the warrant was renewed against the other. After Sir William had decided on the offence of the labourer, and after every person present had retired except a Mr. Tibble, the worthy Magistrate observed, that he had a word to say to Mr. Harvey. He then repeated, to the astonishment of the profecutor, the charge of his having stolen four eggs ; and accompa- nied the charge with such violent oaths and impre- cations, that the prosecutor was a little thrown off his balance. Sir William made out a com- mitment for Mr. Harvey, and ordered Mr. Tibble to be aiding and assisting in taking this man to gaol. At last his humanity began to operate, and he thought it a reasonable com- mutation for his offence that Mr. Harvey should be obliged to pay for the eggs, and that the commitment should not take place. The learned Counsel said, their Lordships would be astonished to hear that Mr. Harvey was obliged to come down one guinea for each egg. Mr. Harvey had not four guineas about him, and Sir William told him he must either find bail or go to prison. But his humanity at last began to soften him a second time, and Sir William was satisfied with Mr. Harvey's promissory note for the four guineas, and with a collate- ral security. Mr. Tibble, out of humanity, interposed in this unfortunate business, and be- came a collateral security for the payment of this note. On a future day, when the warrant for doing justice on the other labourer was returnable, Mr. Harvey attended, and then Sir William must have the note paid. Mr. Harvey ac- cordingly paid him four guineas, when the Ma- gistrate refused to deliver up the note.— Rule to shew cause granted. Mr. Bragg obtained a Rule to shew cause why a Criminal Information should not be filed against Mr. Weaver and Mr. Sadler, two Justices of the Peace for the County and City of Gloucester, for supposed misconduct in the discharge of their duty, in the character of Ma- gistrates. The dispute that gave rise to this business originated so long ago as the year 1785, when it was made a question, whether one Cooke, of the parish of St. Nicholas, in the city of Gloucetter, ought or ought not to be rated for certain lands. This dispute, we understand, has continued from that time to this. By the KING's PATENT, DATED THE 4TH OF FEBRUARY 1792. Although the persevering and unwearied en- deavours of the late Mr. SPILSBURY, in the improvement of his invaluable ANTISCORBU- TIC DROPS, WERE never passed unnoticed by a discerning public ; yet his motive in soliciting the Royal Patronage so long as thirty years after he first prepared them, was not only to secure the property to his Wife and her Family, but as a just ground for an increased confidence to the Patient that the preparation is GENUINE ; an impression that should ever accompany medi- cines calculated for an extensive circulatoin ; And that the same confidence should be preserved after his decease, he expressly mentions in his will, that he fully instructed his wife, and her only, in every minute part of the preparation : Mrs. Spillbury, therefore, most respectfully informs the Public, that the business is carried on by her, at Soho Square, the same as usual, she having, in reality been the preparer of the Antiscorbutic Drops for several years past.

Scotland, AW. 14. This forenoon Mr Muir the younger, of Huntershill, Was conveyed in a coach from the Tolbooth to Newhaven and from thence put on board Capt. Ogilvy's yatcht, for London. LONDON. The troops assembled at Spithead under the command of Sir Charles Grey, K B. for the West Indies, are the 3d foot or Buffs, 9th, 27th, 28- h, 42J. 54th, 57th, 58th, and 59th from the British establishment; the 39' h, 43d, 56th, 64th, and 70th from Ireland, are to join Sir Charles in the Channel. Accounts recevied from Manheim of the 4th inst. give a confirmation of the raising of the siege of Landau. After a short Bombardment, in the night of the 31ft of October, the Prus- sians, on the 1st of November,, withdrew their artillery from the batteries, and returned to their camp, determined to take the town by famine only. Information having been received by the Germans, that 60,000 of the regular troops and National Guards, who had been serving against the Royalists of Brittany, had re- in- forced the French armies in the North, the Prince Royal of Prussia has joined his troops to those of Prince Hohenlohe and the Duke of Brunswick. In consequence of the capture of two Danish vessels, laden with military stores for Brest, by the Alligator privateer, it is said, that Govern ment have determined to issue an order for the more strictly stopping and searching all vessels at sea which are deemed neutral; it having been found that, by being too ceremonious co- wards those nations who are not actually en- gaged in the present war, the French have procured large supplies of warlike stores and implements. Captain Rivers, of the East Middlesex Mili tia, who was charged by Colonel Tuffnel, of the same regiment, with having made use of expressions at the head of the regiment, in the presence of the Officers and Men, strongiy tend- ing to make them discontented and mutinous, by telling them, " they had their just dues withheld from them, and that they would have gone with- out their pay, if he had not drawn on his pri- vate fortune to support them," having submit- ted himself to the decision of a General Court Martial, was acquitted. The Minotaur, a new 74, lately launched at Woolwich, is preparing with all possible expe- dition in the River for the flag- ship of Admiral Macbride. Wooden barracks for the militia, to be en- camped on the coast, are making with great dispatch at Woolwich and Deptford. The importation of corn from Russia into this country has not been lessened, as was ex- pected, by the war. Liverpool last week re- ceived 1,161 quarters of wheat and 680 of barley. Letters from all the different seaports men- tion, that the impress for sailors has been very hot, and that a great number of prime seamen have been obtained. The remains of the late Henry Laurens, Esq. of America, have been burned to ashes, according to the directions of his will.

STEEL, as a Strengthener and D obstruent, * has been long acknowledged to excel all other Ar- ticles of the Materia Medica ; and of the Preparations of this Mineral, that which introduced by the late Dr. MOSES GRIFFITHS has tvn the most successful; yet, as it is exceednigly nauseous, Patients become often to disgusted as not to be able to persevere in its Use. A Circumstance of this Kind gave rise to the Chalybeate Pills, which r< so contrived as to be equal in Effect to Dr. Griffiths's Medicine, with these Advantages, that they are more agreeable in the Palate, yhat they will sit easier upon the Stomach, that they are in > re portable and convienient and that they are not above a tenth Part of the Expence. At that Period of the lifevof Females when Maturity ' should arrive, but the Constitution is defective, either from HABits too sedentary, or from want of Tone in the System, inducing paleness of the lips, Sallowness of the Countenance, PalpitATION of the heart, Shortness of Breath- ing, Trembling of the Knees, Hysterical AffectionS, Ner- vous Head- Aches, & . they may be had recourse to with the utmost Certainty of Advantage. They are likewise the very best Strengtheners after bad Lyings- in-, or for Debility from too long Suckling, or frequent Miscarriages; and they are particularty ser- viceable to those Persons whose Constitutions are relaxed and Broken, by living in hot Climates, or by other Causes. ' They are sold only by FRANCiS NEWBERY, at the Warehouse for Dr James's Powder, no. 45, in St. Paul's Church yard, London, a few Doors from the Corner of Cheapside, and by J. Griffiths, at the Mineral Water Warehouse, St. Alban's street, in Boxes, Price 3s. 6J. each, and i5d- Duly, 01 six Boxes for a Guinea. Each Box contains six Dozen Pills . X. it. Apotheca ries ( to whom a considerable Allowance will be made) may occasionally find it convenient t0 adapt these Pills, rather than have the Trouble of a tedious process. to COUNTRY GENTLEMEN, and Others. For PARALYTIC COMPLAINTS, and the whole Train of NERVOUS DISORDERS, with IN- WARD DECAYS, is strongly recommended HUNTER's RESTORATIVE BALSAM of LIFE and HEALTH, prepared for those whose Constitutions have been weakened and impaired bv the Shock of any violent Disorder, conveying Strength and Tone to all Parts of the Body, and totally re- establishing the whole NERVOUS SYSTEM. 6 *„* Gentlemen of the first distinction in this kingdom, as well as others, whose constitutions were broken and' debilitated have experienced the good effects of this Re- storative Medicine. For Nervous Disorders proceeding from excessive drinking, dissipated pleasures, the immo- derate use of tea, or from whatever occasions great debi- lity and relaxation of the solids, a better and safer Me- dicine cannot be taken. Numbers who had undergone too powerful courses of Mercury ( the bane of health) which reduced them to a state of miserable existence, received the utmost benefit from this Restorative; for after loss of strength and vi gour, they happily regained their former health. The following Extract shews the Importance of this Restorative Medicine : Extract of a very interesting Letter from a Clergyman, dated April 43, 1791. " In December 1769, the above Gentleman was at- tacked with a Paralytic Stroke, which deprived him of the use of his left side. He was attended by the most eminent of the Faculty, who ordered him to Bath in 1770 where he continued till 1771, and great Part of 1772, using the Waters in every way that could be directed ; but growing rather worse than better, he was advised to try native air and he began to recover in some degree, but still continued much debilitated, and laboured under great depression of spirits, insomuch that he lay in bed the greatest part of his time. This Gen- tleman observed, that after taking the RESTORATIVE PILLS a very short time, his spirits returned, and ho could rise cheerfully at six o'clock in the morning, and his strength returned in such a degree, that he can now pass the remainder of his life comfortably. This Gentle- man also, in the Postscript to his Letter says, that he occa- sionally continues the use of the Pills, and constantly expe- riences great advantage from them." The whole of this Letter may be fern in the Pamphlet on the Virtues ot the Restorative, price only 6d. which may be had of the Venders. Since the receipt of the above Letter, an account has been received from a Gentleman of fortune in the coun- try, who says, that after being much afflicted with a Paralytic Complaint, " he received great benefit from the use of the Restorative." Many other Gentlemen have been also candid enough to declare, that after having expended enormous sums of money for medicines of various descriptions, they re- ceived infinite advantage from this Restorative, which is now in such repute, as to be used and recommended by many of the Faculty, as well as by Gentlemen of the first distinction in this country. Note, This Restorative is prepared in Pills, which produce more gradual and lasting effects than all the in- ternal forms the finer parts of the Balsam are also better preserved. This restorative has been ordered to the East- Indies, where, in Nervous Disorders, extreme Debility, and Relaxation, its good effects have been happily experienced. Indeed, every day produces such accounts of its success. For Pains in the Back and Loins, Weaknesses, & c. per- haps there is not any Medicine in public or private practice which has succeeded so well.

Tuesday Afternoon, Nov. 19. Yesterday arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Vienna, Nov. a. Count Herberstein, Ambassador from the Maltese Order, has notified to our Court, that the Grand Master and his Council having resolved not to acknowledge the present Government, of France, the port of Malta was ordered to be shut against French ships of war, so that the French have now not a single port open to them in the Mediterranean, and they must entirely give up all trade and navigation in that sea. The raising of recruits goes on throughout the Ger- man estates with great aCtivity ; Hungary alone will furnish 30,000, one put of which are already on their march to the borders of the Rhine, and another to the Netherlands. Yesterday 5006 men marched to com- plete the regiments of Preiss. and Pelligrini, at the army of the Rhine. The Autic Council of War have ordered 5000 Austrians from Lombardy to Toulon. The same . Courcil have ordered all the recruits who have been in training in the different Provinces last summer to march to the corps for which they are designed. The Government have, by way of reprisal, ordered all French effeCts and property in the Austrian estates to be seized. Berlin, Nov.- 9. Yesterday evening the King our Monarch, accompanied by the Marquis Lucchesini and Colonel Van Manstein, returned from his journey to South Prussia in perfect health. From the Lower Elbe, Nov. 8. On the iSth of October the consort of the Prince Royal of Prussia was safely delivered of a Princess. Environs of Strasburgh, Nov. 3. The French have retired from the other side of the Canal, a;, d none are to be seen on this side of Strasburgh. The Austrians are already within cannon shot of that place. On the 31st their advanced posts had a smart engagement with the Republicans, who were assisted by a number of Alcarian peasants, and the village of Eewersheim was entirely burnt on the occasion ; the advantage, how- ever, was equal on both sides. The Austrian army is still supported by the Prussian, and they can succour each other in case of need. General Wolfrath is ported with his hussars at Worth, and General Kliest at Mastolt. The Prussians will take up their winter quarters in Lorrain. Fresh troops are expected from Austria, which will be stationed at the army 111 the Low Countries, and that of the Rhine. The report of the Austrians at Heidelberg attempt- ing to massacre the French prisoners there is un- founded. Manheim, Nov. 6. Six thousand men, we learn, are arrived before Landau from General Wurmser's army and these are to be followed by others ; so that a serious attack is apparently intended against that place. The chasm in the Imperial army is to be filled up by different regiments, which are desending from Brisgau, and which pass the Rhine at Stolhosen daily. It is besides said, that a considerable corps is assembling under the command of General de Wallis, and that this corps will pass the river above Strasburgh, and take the French in the rear. Manheim, Nov. 7. Some deserters from the gar- rison of Landau, who arrived at the Prussian camp on Monday last, bring the following intelligence: During the bombardment, five of the chief citizens of the town waited on the Commandant and request- ed him to preserve the inhabitants from the danger which threatened them, by surrendering. The Commandant, far from yielding to their solicitations, had the five citizens arrested, and in an hour after- wards they were guillotined. This example of criminal and unjust rigour to intimidated the in- habitants, that they would ( apparently) rather be buried in the ruins of the town than surrender. The season is so bad, that the horse patroles alone skirmish with the enemy. Upper Rhine, Nov. 4. The efforts of the Allies appear to be principally direCted against Strasburgh ; nearly the whole of the Austrian troops have ad. vanced within a very little distance of that city Those who were on the right tide of the Rhine have crossed that river to join the corps of ihe Prince de Waldeck. Their view in this is, it seems, to cut off the communication between the French army be- twixt savern, and Strasburgh, and that of the Moselle, and to invest, in some degree, that part of Alsace. For this purpose the Austrians are making the utmost efforts to get possesion of Zabern and its environs. Some desperate skirmishs take place daily. On the night of the 3 lit the Austrians sur- prized a detachment of French at a place called the English Farm, most of whom they cut to pieces. From the Rhine, Nov. 9. The last official ac- counts from the army under General Wuimier are dated from Brumpt, ihe 3d of November, and men- tion that continual skirmishes lake place between them and the French, but that on the 13th of Oct. a very serious affair happened, and that a general attack was soon expeCted to take place in order to drive the French from their present position, without which it was not improbable but the imperialists might lose the advantages they had hitherto gained in Alsace. Brussels, Nov. 11. To the Official Bulletin of the 23d of October, relative to the affair of Marchiennes, we have to add, that our troops took from the enemy 12 pieces of cannon, and two howitzers of a large size, 36 waggons of ammunition, six large waggons loaded with shells for howitzers, two powder waggons, 3000 muskets, 300 horses, 100 oxen, and 100 sheep. The number of prisoners amounts to 1800, among whom are 56 Officers and the Staff; the rest of the garrison were cut to pieces in the Scarpe. Ou; loss is 18 killed, and among them Major Bender and Lieut. Volkert, and uS wounded. The French continue to make incursions along the extent of our long frontier, and every where com- mit the greatest excesses. Paris, Nov. 9. Barnave, a Member of the Con- stituent Assembly, has been sent to the Abbey.— The wife of Roland has been tried and condemned. When on her trial, she used such disrespeCtful lan- guage in her answers that she was ordered to remain silent, one of her Judges observing, that innocence is environed by candour, guilt by impudence. _ She confessed her connexions with Brissot, Vergniaux, and the rest. The sudden though long wished for death of the ci- devant Duke of Orleans, has surprised ( though it has been approved of by,) all Paris. The people were very impatient for his trial, which commenced at ten - o'clock in the morning-, and did not last long, for he was executed at four in the afternoon. After the in- dictment against him Was read, he declared, " that the day of his trial would be the happiest day of his life;" and when sentence was passed, he observed with indifference, that " since he must suffer he must." In his way to the place of execution he regarded the populace with the utmost firmness, but in passing the Place d'Egalite, where stood his ci- devant palace, he appeared much affecled, and continued so till he lost sight of it. He was accompanied by Coustard the Deputy, and three other criminals. He spoke not a word all the way, and on his arrival at the scaf- fold ascended it the first, and laid his head on the block with a firmness and courage, which, from a man whole cowardice was known to all Europe, was astonishing. In the Sessions of the 6th the Executive Council gave an account of the Exchange of Prisoners of War. In the Army of Italy the exchange has been stopped, in consequence of a dispute relative to the inclusion of the Emigrants, which the Spanish General insists upon. That of the Army of the Rhine has been suspended, in connquence of an order issued by the Commissioners there, forbidding any communica- tion with the enemy. A long letter from General de Laage stated, that the troops of the Republic had, after a very obstinate action, entered Catalonia. In the Session of the 8th Valence announced the arrest of Bertrand, an Ex- constituent. Mei in, of Thionville, moved, that the Department of La Vendee fhould be called Le Department Venge. Referred to the Committee of Public Safety. Paris, Nov. 1 Bailly is now on his trial; 28 witnesses are brought against him ; the chief charge is the affair of the Champ de Mars. FRANCE. PARIS, November 12. The wife of the Ex- Minister Roland gave great offence to the Revolutionary Tribunal by her dis- respeCtful behaviour. She acknowledged her inti- macy with Brissot, Vergniaud, and others who have suffered under the Revolutionary axe. She was condemned and executed on the 9th inst. as were also Lamarche, ci devant Superintendant of the General Administration of thc Assignats, and. five Municipal Officers of the Pont- de- Ce, con- viCtcd of having kept up a correspondence with the rebels of La Vendee. Sylvian Bailly, formerly Mayor, convicted of having caused the Patriots to be massacred on the 17th of July, 1791, at the Champ de Mars, suf- fered the same punishment on the 10th inst. on the Champ de la Federation. The red flag, which in thc affair of the Champ de Mars was the signal for massacre, was tied to the cart in which he was con- ducted to the place of execution. The Municipality has ordered a register to be opened, to receive the declarations of all those who wished to be depretrises ( unpriested) ; and who are desirous of giving proofs of Civism by abjuring the functions of a Minister of any kind of worship. The valuable shrine belonging to the church of St. Genevieve, has been carried at night to the mint, by orders of the Constituted Authorities, Some remains of respect on the part of the people for this patroness of Paris, required this precau- tion. The gold and silver chain, ornamented with brilliants, is worth about 1,5o0,000 livres. The Department and Municipality have ordered that the Civic Feast, which was to take place at the ci- devant Palais Royale, shall be celebrated at the ci devant Metropolitan Church; and that the musicians shall sing patriotic hymns before the statue of Liberty, which shall be placed in the room of the ci- devant blessed Virgin. According to information received at the Jacobin Society, the rebels who were driven from La Lo- zerc have taken refuge in Aveyron, St. Genies, Rhodes, and Millehau. They assemble in forests and caverns. Of 671 Commonalties which form this Department, near 600 villages have entered into this conspiracy : they are chiefly the young men of the first and second requisition, who did not choose to be employed in the destruCtion of their religion. There are about 4 or 5000 of them within the extent of eight leagues, and they are supplied with arms and ammunition, which they soon, by disarming the Commons. In one of their caverns has been discovered a manufacture of assignats. Thc forests of Milguerau and Pologne are the principal haunts. The commander in the first is a man for whom they entertain' the greatest respeCt; and a foreigner, who speaks to them through thc medium of an interpreter, commands in Cologne. . These Chiefs have announced to them a reinforcement of 15,000 SwissS. Tallifer, one of the Members of the Convention, and General Mar- bot, with 8000 men, have formed a chain of posts along the exajiit of these corrupted distriCts. Pre- parations are making to burn the places of refuge of the rebels, and measures are taken to extermi- nate them all. Great complaints have been made at the Club des Cordeliers againlt Duquesnoy, one of the Members of National Convention, who is accused by General Jourdan, of continually thwarting all his operations by a despotism and severity, which inspire terror in the breast of the officers, and banish every sentiment of love for the duties of their station. Complaints were made at the same time of such embezzlements in the army, that the Republic scarce receives a third of the captures made by the patriots; that the cavalry is dying for want of forage; that great con- fusion reigns in the Northern Army ; that Duques- noy counteracts Gen. Jourdan, because he wishes to get his own brother appointed in his room, who has the command of a division. Duquesnoy has desired, that on account of the very pressing wants of the Northern Army, who- ever has more than six shirts shall give one for the Republican Forces. General Carteaux is not better treated at the Jacobins, A letter from Marseilles denounces him, . as guilty of great severity towards his soldiers, and neglecting his duty :— but his defence is taken up by one of his Aides de- Camp, who in his turn denoun- ces one of the Members of the Convention, Fieron, who displays at Marseilles an insolent and repre- hensible state of luxury, and is surrounded solely by a number of pretty Aristocratic females. General La Poype, ci- devant an officer in the French Guards, and whose commission as Colonel was signed by the late King, is likewise denounced. Hebert, at the same sitting, accused Duquesnoy of brutal treatment, and insolently striking the Republican soldiers: he proposed to recal both Freron and Duquesnoy, and to deprive General La Poype of his command, which motions were agreed to amidst the loudest plaudits. Hebcrt has likewise denounced the Editor of the Journal of the Mountain. A letter from, Strasbourg of the 4th of Nov. mentions, that the plan formed to deliver up that city to the enemy is discovered; in consequence of which all the merchants, bankers, and suspected persons, are put under arrest, and their papers sealed, as likewise their money; that the persons composing the Municipality, the DistriCt, and Department, are going to be sent into the heart of the Country, and that they are replaced by a commission appointed by the Members of the Jacobin Club. According to this plan, a00 men in disguise were to get into the city ; zo-. o French gentlemen were to appear at one of the gateS and obtain admittance in one of the first inclosures, 200 of whom were to push forward, and murder the National Commissioners and their dependents. The signal was to be the King, the white cockade, and a white scarf. It was agreed to spike the cannon, and to murder the centinels ; 1 while very considerable corps of troops were to come forth from the forest of Haguenau, and reinforce them. The letter which contains these facts, and many others, is signed—" Le Marquis de St. Hilaire." In consequence of this discovery, the Representa- tives, Mithaud and Guyardin, have issued a PrOcla- mation to publish the whole plot, and to take such measures as are capable of causing the conspiracy to become abortive. A Decree of Accusation has passed againd Osselin ( so well known in the Convention for having solely compiled the Laws against the Emigrants, and for Continually denouncing them). He is accused of having liberated an Emigrant ( for very weighty rea- sons). Soiles and Froidure, Administrators of the Police, are put under arrest, for having signed his en- largement. La Planche, one of the National Members, writes from Falaise ( Normandy), on the 5th instant, that fresh alarms are spreading every where ; that couriers announce the approach of the Rebels ; that he will set off with 4000 men to drive them back, proteCt the department of La Manche and L'Orne ; that he will cover Granville and Cherbourg, succour Avran- ches and that he is accompanied by Generals Sepher and Tilles. The ci- devant Bishop of Paris, Gobet, wearing a red cap, has demolished with his own hands the statues of Saints which adorned the Metropolitan Ca- thedral. The Committee of Safety at Brevis have an- nounced to the Convention, that Lidon, late Mem- ber of the Convention, and outlawed, not knowing where to take refuge, ended his career with a pistol. His wife, his brothers, and his mistress, are put under arrest. A letter from Mortain, in thc department cf Mayenne, mentions, that thc rebels took possession of Mayenne and Fougeres, without meeting with any resistance; that at Ernee, thc 19th battalion of chasseurs lost 700 men ; that thc rebels have a very considerable artillery, and excellent cavalry ; that at Fougeres the shattered remainder of the chasseurs, united to thc battalions of the Re union - and Cote d'Or, were obliged to make head against the whole force of thc enemy's victorious columns ; and that, after a terrible engagement of two hours, they left the town in possession of the rebels. It is moreover apprehended, that the ruffians will next procecd to Rennes. LONDON. This day arrived a Mail from Dublin. Mails due— Two Dublin and two Water- ford. Mr. Kurvefer, a King's Messenger, arrived at Whitehall, with dispatches from the Duke of York, whose head quarters are still at Tour- nay, He brought no particular news. The armies in Flanders remain in the same position as they were according to the last advices. Private letters from France announce, that the inhabitants of Lyons have offered to pay six millions of livres to the Convention, to prevent the further destruCtion of that city. Several 1 If the principal edifices have, in the mean time, been destroyed. The pillage of private property, and the massacre of every person who does not enter into the views of the Mountain party, principally occupy the attention of the Constituted Au- thorities in France. It was yesterday very strongly reported on Change, that news had been received by a merchant vessel, that the port of St. Maloes, in Brittany, had been taken by the French Royal- ists. We cannot vouch for the truth of this intelligence ; but we have very good reason to believe, that if this news is at present prema- ture, it will shortly be verified. We cannot say more at present. The expedition on which the Earl of Moira has lent his arm to Government, is to be di- rected to the interior of France, by the avenue of St. Maloes, which is to be immediately at- tacked. Earl Moira is to have eight of the battalions prepared for the expedition to the West Indies. The Duke of York is expected in England in the course of next week. The Commissioners of the Convention are carrying on their system of murder and robbery all over the kingdom. Some letters from Bour- deaux just arrived mention, that the members of the house of Rabat, very rich merchants, and people of thc first character and respectability there, have been arrested, and accused of dis- affection to the Government. The Commission- ers, in examining their house and premises, found 25,000 louis d'ors buried in a garden, which they seized for the use of thc Conven- tion ; and which probably was the chief ground of the charge against these ill fated men, who will probably be sacrificed, that no one may live to reclaim the plunder. We are happy to announce, that the report of thc Courageaux man of war being sunk in the Mediterranean, is without foundation ; and that according to the advices brought by Captain Cook from Toulon, she was then refitting in that harbour. ' Extract of a Letter from Plymouth- Dock, Nov. 17, " Yesterday arrived his Majesty's frigates Druid and Alarm, of 32 guns each, from the Eastward, the latter is come up into harbour to refit immediately, as she is ordered for the West Indies under Admiral Jervis. " Last evening, about four o'clock^ his Ma- jesty's ship Caesar went off the stocks, the launch was remarkably well and without the least da- mage ; she is daily expeCted to be commissioned as a flag ship. ' « The Trusty, of 50 guns, is ordered to be got ready for commission, and is brought down into the harbour for that purpose, we hear she is to be flag- ship in the Down's. " The Andromeda frigate, of 32 guns, is paid off, and laid up in a state of ordinary, as she wants a thorough repair. Her men are turned over to the Impregnable. « ' The Resource, cf 23 guns, Sir C. Hamilton, is ordered for the West- Indies, and will be ready to sail in a few days. " His Majesty's brig King's Fisher, of 18 guns, Capt. Graves, is come up harbour to refit. " On Friday night and last night a general press took place here by all the ships in harbour and in the Sound, when a great number of sea- men were taken from different merchant ships and other vessels within this port." THEATRE. Covent - Garden. Yesterday evening, a young Lady made her first appearance 0n Covent Garden Stage; in the character of Imogen, and was favourably re- ceived, This Lady has been' brought to the Theatre by that able veteran of thc scene, Mr. Yates, and promises to be, at least, an useful aCtress. She possesses a tolerable figure and a good voice, and acts with as much ease, and as little embarrassment, as if she had been accus- tomed to the profession.— She spoke most of the character with propriety, and a necessary degree of effeCt, and played it very respeCtably throughout — She must learn, however, to fa- miliarize herself to stage deportment; and; when she next performs the part, she should en- deavour to hold her person ereCt. Previous to the play, Mr. Middleton spoke an Address, the objeCt of which was to recom- mend the Lady to the generosity and indul- gence of the audience, and to entreat their favourable construCtion of a female's first ef- fort. LAW INTELLIGENCE. Court of King'S- Bench, Nov. 13. This day the Grand Jury for the county oF Middlesex was sworn in before Mr. Justice Ashhurst. His Lordship said, he should not detain them with the ceremony of a Charge, as he did not know of any thing new that had occurred since their last meeting, which was necessary for him to press on their particular consideration ; and as to the common business, he knew from experience that they would discharge it in such a manner as to deserve the thanks of their country. HYND & FLETCHER V. THE PROPRIETORS OF THE TRENT AND MERSEY NAVIGA- TION. There was a Verdict for the plaintiffs in July last, and a Rule had been obtained to shew cause why a new trial should not be granted. Messr. Erskine, Garrow, and Wood, shewed cause against that Rule, and Messrs. Bearcroft and Lane spoke in support of it. Their Lordships delivered an elaborate opi- nion, seriatim, both on the merits of this case, and also upon the general question respecting the duty of Common Carriers. The Court were unanimously of opinion, that the plain- tiffs were entitled to retain their verdiCts ; but Lord Kenyon differed in some respects from the other Judges on the general question. As this is a subject of very great importance to the public, we shall report it at length in a future Paper. Mr. Erskine moved for a Rule to shew cause, why a criminal information should not be filed against William Lock, for a Libel on the wife of Mr. Middleton, who was now under prosecu- tion for Adultery in the Commons. The Court granted a Rule to shew cause, why a criminal information should not issue in this case.
