From the LONDON GAZETTE, of Feb. 8. Whitehall, February 8. ALetter, of which the following is a copy, was this day received from the moft noble the Marquis Cornwallis, K. G. by the Right Hon. Henry Dun- das, his Majesty's principal Secretary of State for the Home- Department. SIR, Fort St. George, Sept. 16, 1793. Advice of the war with France arrived at Fort St. George on the 2d, and at Fort William on the nth of June, from Mr. Baldwin, his Majefty's Consul at Alexandria ; and this gentleman was fo anxiouj to promote the public fervice, and fo de- firous to enable the company's governments to de- rive every possible advantage from his communi- cation, tnat he declared himfelf refpcmlible in his public character for the truth of the information, and assured them that they might aft uport- it with confidence ; addihg, that all the British and • Dutch vessels in the ports of France had been seized. Upon the receipt of this intelligence, all the small factories belonging to the French on the Continent of India, as well as their ships in Our ports, were taken possession of; and the govern- ment of Fort St. George proceeded immediately to make preparations for the attack of the impor- tant fortress of Pondicherry, which place was in full as good a state of defence, as when it was at- tacked at the breaking out of the last war. It was reported at Pondicherry that considerable reinforcements were expefted from the Isle of France, under the convoy of the Sybille of forty guns, and three smaller frigates: and we were in some doubt whether Admiral Cornwallis, who blocked up the place by. sea with the Minerya frigate, and three Indiamen, would have been able to' prevent the succours from being landed ; but the Sybille,- which was the only ship of the enemy's that appeared during the siege, went off immediately, upon being chaced by Admiral Cornwallis, and has not fince been heard of on this coast. t was very desirous of giving my personal as- sistance in. carrying tin the last piece of service that was likely to occur during my stay in India, and embarked on board a small French vessel that liad been fei^ ed and armed in Bengal, as foon as I could avail myself of the convoy of the Wood- cote Indiaman, which had been taking in new • masts at Calcutta, and without which I did not- think I could with prudence " hazard the voyage, at least while I held the office of Governor- Ge- neral. The Triton Indiaman, which Admiral Cornwallis and Sir Charles Oakley sent, at my requeft, on . account of the difficulty and uncer- tainty in equipping the Woodcote, arrived a few ilavs befort we sailed, and returned with us. By the great and meritorious exertions of the government of Fort St. George, in transporting the ordnance, stores, & c, fo f fo considerable an undertaking, and those of Colonel Braithwaite, and of the troops under his command, in carrying on the attack, our batteries were opened against the place fooner than I expected; and the muti- nous and dastardly conduct of the garrison obliged the governor to Surrender the forts several days before my arrival, and before the arrival of five companies " of . Bengal artillery, and twelve com- panies of Lascars, which I had embarked on board of the Woodcote, and three other vessels, which were . likewise employed in bringing. rice, on government's account, to this presidency. I shall beg leave to refer you, for the particulars of the operations againft Pondicherry, to the letter, and the accompanying papers, which I have received from Colonel Braithwaite, and to his aid- du- camp, Cnpt. Braithwaite, of the 72d regiment, whwwill have the honour of delivering to you my difpatches; and who Hketfife carries to England the colours that were taken from the enemy.

HESSIAN TROOPS. ' Mr. Grey prefaced his motion, relative to the recent disembarkation of these troops, with a specch of foihc ' length. He observed, that notwithllanding what might ' he said by certain perfons, it was obvious that the Con- stitution had- of late suffered more by the inroads of prerogative, than by the encroachments of Democracy. » - TIit meafu're in question, he said, was a striking in- stance of the former ; according to the principles of the Constitution, as wvll as by law, his Majesty could not . introduce a body of foreign troops into the king- dom, without the confent of Parliament; by the con- duit of Minjllers in the prefent Jnftn'nce, the reverie was praftically afl'crtbd. liis Willi was to bring the matter to ifliie, and i, ( ho. uld be finally afl'ertecl by. the Houle whether or not the King had a power lo to do. He contended that lie had not; and in this a'flertion, the maxims eftablilhed at the Revolution, the Bill of Rights, and Ail of Settlement, by. ali which, the K ing could not eve. iv maintain an. army of natives, in this kingdom without the concurrence,' of Parliament,,, which, together with all the precedents that hail taken " place 011 fimilar occafions, he- laid, would bear hifri out. — Having touched upon each of thefe topics, and par- ticularly the hiftories of the different precedents ot in- troducing foreign troops into the kingdom lince the re- volution, in fome detail, he concluded with moving to the following eft'eft, " That ' the employ eft t of fo- reigners ' in. leryices of military. truft, or bringingfo- , reign troopl into the kingdom,' without the, confent'of Parliament, iscontrarv to law." Mr. Powys perfectly agreed with the Hon. Gentle- man, that it wits the undoubted duty of every Member of Parliament to watch over the conduct of Ministers ; but at the lame time. it could not be denied,. that Members had another duty, equally important, which if,' to'watch over and to prevent great aaogyr. s, coming >, from another; quaner— he meant, from- tl'ole whq, un- der pretence of. prefevving Freedom, may propofe rriea- • lures which have a tendency to deltruy all regular Go- vernment, and to introduce anarchy and confulion.-- He. felt 110 fliame in confessing himself to be one of thofe perfons, upon whom fo much abul'e and. ridicule had been thrown, viz. an' Alarmist j and he confeli'ed he was much 11101 e afraid of two or three fcore of led bbn- nets, than of all theCrowiis andSteptres in Europe. The Hon. Gentleman had called upon all thofe who had opposed the Administration- in the year 1775- rela- tive to the employing of foreign troops, to stand for- ward and fupport his motion.—- He was one of thofe • who voted agaipft the Ministers in the year 17.7s j and Tie did 1b beeaule he th'oUght the measure Illegal 5 . but' ne thought he could point out very material distinctions between the principle of the two cases. In 1^ 75, t'he foreign troops were sent into garrison in two ' very, im- portant" places, and the English troops were sent to' America; this he thought unconstitutional, and there- fore voted againlt it— But What was t he fieiYhrthe pre-- fent uiltance ? A body of Hessians . had been brought over for a particular purpofe ; they were- dircmbarkc:!,' it - was true— but it was for the purpofc of'p: .- fcVvihg their health, which would have been affected by- re- maining so long on board the transports. -- The Hon. Gentleman had relied much on . precedents --- There was one precedent which, he thought pre- Cisely in point.; that was, the cafe b'f 1784. In'- that cafe, the foreign troops, 011 their return from America, were obliged to be landed in England, from the circumstance of the river Weizer being frozen up," \ vhich rendered it impolQble lor them to return- h. ome immediately; he lliould be very glad to heaj< a d » f- tihaion between the two cafes. It was further to be Observed, that in the year 1784, when this meafure Was ' adopted, the Opposition of that day took no no- tice of it, though, about that time, they had carried fome motions againft the Minilters ; the Oppqlition at that time did not want talent or energy, but unfortu- nately the Hon. Gentleman was not prcfebt to point out their dutv to them; The Hon. Gentleman might derive much popularity from his motion among a certain set of men ; and he ( Mr. powys) among the same perfons, would probably be abused; but that Was a circumstance he was ,' pre- pared to meet. 1 It \ yas undoubtedly th'e/ luty of every. Member 10 oppofe : t1) e encroachments of Prerogative againlt Vultus instantis Tyranni, but at t'he faille time, they . Mr. Whitbread demanded, that whenever gentlemen made inlinuatifans upon iltc patriotism of gentlemen leafed 011 that bench, they would fallow it with a direil" and pofitive ciiarge. Let them be impeached, if im peachment could be grounded. He could answer id the virtue of his Hon.. friend who had propossed the motion. He contended that all which the Constitution had. suffered of late, or that there was any apprehen- in time of war, might be eventually injurious to the Constitution ; for a badly- inclined Sovereign, availing himrbU'of- the numerous pretence's furnished by war, might introduce such a foreign force as ft- ould make him matter of his subjects. ' The Attorney. General, in a fpceeh of fome length, nfidered the - original queftion in a legal juid confti- tutional - point of view'; he animadverted 011 the Bill of Rights,' the Afts of Settlement, and the other diilerent Ads wliic. h any t. av referred to the fubjeft- in debate, in fuch a manner-, " as evinced him not only, the tho- roughly informed, but the real conftitutional lawyer. Then alluding tothe different precedents which had been cited, he Contended for the ftriitnefi of their ap- plication, and- on . the whole manifefted, feemingly, much to the fafisfaftipn of the Houfe, that the meii- fure, independent qf it's political expediency,.. was founded on ' the inoft constitutional and legal principles. Mr. Fox supported his Hon. Friend ( Mr. Greyf and fpoke. againlt the previous queftion,- with his accui- tomed energy, lie then adverted to Mr. Powys's mention of doubts', which he treated and felt with " juft indignation ; arid laid, that tire bill of Indemnity '•'•'. as thrown out, becaufe that Word Was in the preamble: He paid many compliments to Members of the lipper Houfe, particularly . to the late Marquis of Rocking- 1HR1V who Was the chief inlfigator of the reje'ftion of that'bill. He had heard'fome fay, that t'hoy were. ) i ry " the queftion was agitated ; lie could riot for one agree; and, he thought itai- aahighly praife: worthy to, bring forward a motion tccoppnfe adoitriive'fo- fireaSf'ul. He then combated the precedents which were adduced, and having anfwered with great'ability to^ ll the argu- ments, he gave his negative to the previous ' queftion. Mr. Pitt and Mr. swift spoke in explanation; and ' Mr. Martin having said a few words, the question as loudly called forj and a division look place; - when there appeared, for the previous queftion, 184— Againft 35' Majority, 149. - lion of it's fullering, w as by the encroachments o, i'the Prerogative; going into details on this fubjetl, arid cftinglome iriltances in which certain deejfions of the Courts of Judicature were arbitrarV and oppreilive, he gave'it as his opinion, that Lord George Gordon had fallen a martyr to the coriduft of the Court of King's Bench, in holding huii to fuch exceffive. bail. Mr. wyndham', in arguing on the oppofite lide of the queftion, dii'ptaycd fhis' ufiial pliilological aciftenets/' He was of opinion, that it Would be much better to cbnfider the meafure with a view to- tlic, exigency of the moment, and the abl'olute nqeellity of the occalioli, than 011 the abstract ground of a legal qiujltior.. . That a great partof the Democracy of the kingdom were of late in perpetual habits of afl'ailing the Conttitutiop, he faicl was of public notoriety ; and it were much' better if certain gentlemen in that Houfe had not countenanced fome of thofe alleviations. ' Lord G. Cavendish condemned the measure of intro- ducing the Hessian troops into. the kingdom, in a con- stitutional point of view : he was of opinio:-.," that the best thing Ministers could do on the occasion, would be to apply for an Act of Indemnity. Major Maitland replied to Mr. Wyndham.. He af firnfed, that no objection had been made to the argu nients of his Hon.' friend who propofed ihe motion and that the Right Hon. Gentleman had appeared to. . tally ignorant of the Mutiny Bill, to which he had given his vote but an hour before. He then expounded tile Mutiny Bill, and informed the Right Hon. Gen- tlemen, that no British army could be maintained, in this kingdom but hy a vote of Parliament; that the Hessians, since tl, ieir* landing, were subject to no con- troul but the civil law, and were in ^ othing more than. a band of tebefs," or an ariu'ed banditti; that the 8th of George the . Third, Chap. 1.?, only applied to the quartering a « d billeting of them, and that as rile whole was unconstitutional and iileg J, he should object to tile disembarkation. Mr Grey spoke iii explanation. Mr. w, Smith Supported the originaL motion. ' Mr. Adair was sorry that such a qusftion had been agitated, it could do no possible good, nor- could it strengthen, the law, even were it carried as the Hon Gentleman ( Mr. Grey) desired, and it may do an in. jury to it, the Bill of Rights, he contended, should be ,' most liberally conflrufted, as a great part of our ex- . cellent Constitution, as asserted at trie Revolution was involved in it; and to the standard of that Coil stitution it was belt to rally, in order to repel the en croachments either of defpotifm or anarchy ; were he reduced to the alternative, he would certainly vote for the motion ; but to avoid the delicacy of fuch a fitu- ation, he would move the previous queltion, which he accordingly did. Mr. York seconded this nnjtion, and said a feW words in disapprobation of the original proportion. Mr. Pitt, in a speech of considerable length, which he displayed his usual ability and eloquence, took a comprehensive view of the entire subject. Hi let out by declaring himself a responsible adviser of tile meafure in question; and that lie certainly could not look for indemnification in an instance, where th law and the general usage of the country would uni formly bear him out. In collating the different pre cedents for. the measure, he displayed the most exten sive historical information; and on legal points lie Commented with considerable knowledge, and thereby manifested the expediency,* legality, and conftitutiona'l propriety of the meafure.-— Alluding to the particular ineal'urcon which the inotion was founded, he. obferved that to limply look at his Majefty's communication of the affair, would be fufficient to fatisfy almoft any man;' it was therein ftated, that a body of Hellian troops, Intended for foreign fervice,' had been for eonlulerable time at their place of . rendezvous off the ,111c; of Wight; and with a view tb the health ofjthefe troops, his Majesty had. thought proper . to order a dif- embarkation ; the caules for landing- the troops', - and the objects for which they were intended, were of Course clearly and fully set forth: ; ii was'his intention, he laid, to fupport the Learned Serjeant's motion for' the previous question. . Mr. Francis deprocated the illiberal construction which had been put on that part in question, of tile Bill of Rights.. Would any Gentleman seriously de .. clare iiis opinion,. that becaufe - Foreign troops- were riot expressly mentioned in that bill, that they, were not included in the spirit of the restricttion : such a doctrine had never been held. Some Gentlemen seemed to think that the power of the Crown to vail in Foreign troops was restricted only in time of peace; this was a dangerous idea; for allowing the power unlimitedly LONDoN, February 1 x. The interruption of military operations on the continent has continued for another week, and,, at.' length, an interval is apparent between the campaigns pf .179.3 and 1794. In'the North, nothing has been distinguishable for forhe weeks all hut the preparations of both armies to com- m'ente the next campaign with extenfive and powerful movements > On the Rhine, the French are.- It- ill occupied in plundering the country, which! they obtained by the battles of the 23d « ncL46th of December, and the allies in prepar- ing for the defence of manheim, Treves, Mentz, and Franckfort, as well as of all the Country on the. eaflem bank of the Rhine; fo that the eager-' ness.' of the former army for booty, and the rea- diness of the latter for defence, will probably prevent any important contetts on that frontier till the allies are sufficiently Enforced to commence them,. In Savoy, an entire cefl'ation of arms has taken, place since November; and the Spanifh troops in Rousillon having taken meafures for the blockade of Perpignan, appear to rely upon, that mode of reducing the place without entering upon" the operations of a llege. Previous to their quitting Worms, the ( when • widitd 10 carry off a large bell from the ' cluirch of Etienne. The belli as they took it down, fell en a vault, which it broke through, hnd in the vault the Republicans found' a quaufity of plate and church ornaments which were hid there. The french army on the Rhine ic gone into cantonments; that of- theMoselle is ftill in aftual fervice. The papers from Flanders have the following article, dated Brussels, Feb. 6:—" A letter from Duretal", dated Jan. 24, mcntidns, that a most. bloody battle had taken place between the Roy- alists under M. Charette and the Republicans, in which 24,000 are faid to have fallen, and that, the Royalists remained masters of the field; and that a number of prisoners were taken, who were ( by way of reprisal) ( hot upon the spot. A letter from blois of the fame date fays", that the Re- public puts every thing in a state of requifition to send succours to Tours, which feems threa tened by the Royal and christian army." The instruftions delivered to the Tiers- Etat, in France, in 1789, were exprefsly and solely to make fome necessary reforms in the Government, and relieve the mafs- of the people. But the Com- munes foon went beyond their powers, feized the Royal Demefnes,. dragged. their King- a captive to Paris, abolifhed the nobility, plundered and'per- fecuted the Clergy. The second National Assem- bly treated the virtuous Louis, XVI. with all sorts of contuma'cy, ' and at laft the nefarious Conven- tion brought him to an ignominious death. The fubfequent events, the flight of the emigrants to fave their lives, the murder of thoufands with the forms of juftice, and the atrocities of all . kind committed fince, rani be a dreadful leflbn - tb all. Europe; and teach nations with what cau. tfoii they ought to approach the. sanctuary of their fundamental laws, left by pullilrg it down rafhly, the whole country fhould become a prey to wild beads, in human fhape, as is now the cafe in France. _ On the' 27th of January, a deputation of Ame- ricans appeared at the bar of the Convention to demand, the freedom of Thomas Paine, who, they said, came to France at their own invitation, to take a seat among them ; they represent him as the apostle of liberty, a profound and valuable philosopher, and- pledge themselves as securlty for his conduct, when released, during the short time he will remain in France; and they obferve, that by, his confinement the French are affording complete gratification to tire King of the neigh- bouring ifles, who has expelled him his domi- nions. The president replied, that their petition should be taken into consideration, but of fortune, who had given her hand to a journey- man hair- dresser, lately came on'to be heard. It was' proved, that the ' lady was under seventeen years of age, and first became acquainted with the knight of the comb at Margate, where he assumed the character of a young gentleman 6f fortune. They were soon afterwards married in, London by licence, totally without the knowledge and consent of the lady's parents and friends. The marriage was declared illegal, and of course fet afrde. . _ Yesterday Messrs. Muir, Margarot,- and Skir- ving,, under sentence. of transportation, • were conveyed from Newgate to the place of their em- barkation to New South Wales. Mr. Palmer was fent off fome days fince. Between ten and eleven o'clock about 60 female convicts were put on board a vessel at Black- friars- Bridge, destined to the same voyage. _ Mr. Purefoy who was outlawed, on a prosecu- tion for the " murder of Col. Roper, has been brought before the court Of King's- Bench, who have reversed his outlawry, and committed him' to be tried for the murder at the next Kent assizes. yesterdAy se'nnight the Hon.

Whitehall, Feb. II. L N Sunday the 9th inftant the Right Hon. Henry Dundas, one of his Majefty's principal Secretaries of State, received Difpatches from the Lieutenant- Gover- nor of Jamaica, dated the 15th of December, J79.?, containing intelligence, that Major Grant, Commandant at Cape Nichola Mole, had ac- cepted the Surrender of the Parifhes of St. Marc and Genaivcs, in St.- Dotnineo, to his Majefty, upon the fame terms and conditions which have been granted to Cape Nichola Mole and the Quarter of Jeremie; and that the English Flag was, in confequence, flying on all the Forts and Batteries in the above- mentioned parifhes. Admiralty. Office, Feb: 11. On Sunday the 9th itift. a letter was received from Commodore Ford, Commander in Chief of his Majefty's ( hips at Jamaica, addrelfed to Mr. Stephens, dated the 7th of December, 1793, of which the following isanextfafl; with copy of the letter to which it refers : I. request you will be pleafed to inform the Lords'. Commissioners of the Admiralty, that fince my letter of the 24th o£ November last, by the Antelope Packet, nothing material has hap- pened to the fquadron under my command, ex- cept the capture of the Inconstant French frigate, by the Penelope and Iphigenia, the particulars whereof are stated in Captain Rowley's Letter, to me, herein inclofed ; and to which I ( hall add, { in juftice to the commendable zeal, activity and enterprize of thofe officers on all occasions, & the high condition and discipline of their ( hips) that in my opinion, either o'f them alone would have accomplished what fell to their united efforts. Penelope, Port Royal Harbour, Jamaica, SIR, November 30, 1793. i beg leave to acquaint you, that I failed from Mole St. Nicholas on the 20th inftant, having received, intelligence that the Inconftant frigate was expected to leave Port au Prince, to convoy a large armed Merchantman. On the day fol- lowing I foil in with his Majesty's ship Iphigenia, Captain Sinclair, to whom I gave orders to keep . company, and was proceeding to Port au Prince, • vi'hen I was informed from Leoganne, that the ' Inconstant had sailed with two fmall veflels for Petit Trou, but was daily expected back. I immediately made fail, with intention of trying to take or deftroy her in the Harbour: but 011 tlie night of the 24th we had the good fortune to fail in with her, and, after exchanging a few broadfides, fhe struck; her colours to the Frigates. The Penelope had one man killed and feven wounded ; amongft the latter is Mr. John Allen, MidshiPman. The Inconstant at six killed, amongst whom was the Firft Lieutenant; and the Captain and twenty wounded, three of whom are since dead. From the gallant behaviour of Lieut. Malcolm, the Officers. And Ship's Company, I have every reason to flatter myself, that had either of his Majesty's Frigates been single, they would have been equally fortunate in capturing her. I beg leave td add, that Captain Sinclair's very favourable report of the conduct of his Officers * nd Ship's Company is fuch as does them the greateft honour. I remain, Sir, Your moft obedient humble Servant, B. S. ROWLEY John Ford, Esq. Commodore and commander in Chief, & c. & c. Admiralty- Office Feb. 10. Rear Admiral Mac bride, in his letter to Mr. Stephens, dated the 31st ult. mentions, that Sir John Borlalt: Warren, Captain of his Majesty's fhip Flora, being on a cruize on the coast of France, had captured and sent to Portsmouth, a French Republican Brig, named La Vipere, of sixteen fix- pcundcr guns and i^ o men, quite new, coppered, and only four days from Havre.

The King has been pleased to appoint George Poyntz Rickets, Efq. to lie Captain General and Governor in Chief of his Majesty's island of Barbadoesin America, in the room of David Parry, Efq. deceafed. LONDON, February 6. Our private letters from Flanders accord with the report in the French Convention, of a pro- pofal having been made by the Allies to ac- knowledge the Republic of France provisionally, till the form of Government ( hould be fettled by negociation; and for this purpofe a further propofal was made of a. truce or fufpenfion of arms., for two years. This offer was refufed by the French Government.— Gen. Evening, The French Convention, adopting every mea- fure to stimulate their Naval Officers against their enemies, have passed the subsequent extraordinary refolutions:— " On the report of the same Committee it was decreed, that every Captain or other Officer of the Navy, who shall strike, and surrender a ship of the line to the enemy, without having fought a force at least double her own, shall be declared guilty of treason against their country. " The Convention wishing to be just as well as severe, decree at the same time, that the sea- men who sall capture an enemy's ship of one third greater force than their own, shall get pro- motion, and also be otherwise rewarded." Ninety- five thousand horse are to be raised in France! and thefe employed in war, without contributing in any degree to the cultivation of land. Such a number of horses taken from agri- culture mult necessarily slacken the operations of the plough, and famine be the ultimate confe- quence to the people. The prosecution of the war being refolved on, we may expect a very early opening of the cam- paign ; and preparations are accordingly making on both sides. In Flanders the troops are all moving to the frontiers, and will foon commence their operations. The heavy cavalry are to be reinforced by one corporal, one fergeant, and 24 privates to each troop of dragoons, to take place from the 24th of January laft. The expences are to be de- frayed by the appointment of the fecond lieu- tenant colonel and fecond major of each regiment. Government, we understand, have purchased the Hessan horfes brought over to reinforce the Earl of Moira, and agree to give 12I. a head for 900, They are small, in wretched condition, and have already cost this country little lefs than 60l. a horfe. General O'Hara writes from Paris, that he is not confined in a prison, and may walk about the town : but it is painful to him not to be able to go abroad without Wearing a red cap. This badge of anarchy and confusion must, no doubt, fit extremely heavy on the head of a loyal officer, and a man of honour. Fargeon, perfumer to the late Queen of France, has been put under an arrest at Paris, charged with having sent gold out of the kingdom in pots filled with pomatum. When Pondicherry was besieged, the French, it is said, applied to Tippoo Saib for assistance, who told them he did not know who they were, or in what capacity they applied to him, and asked them where was their King ? The Kings of France have constantly, for seve- ral ages, undermined the privileges and immu- nities of- the Nobility. This may perhaps be reckoned as one of the many causes which have at last overset the throne, with circumstances of atrocity unparalleled in hiftory. A well consti- tuted Monarchy must reft upon the fundamental bale of intermediate powers, from wTiich it de- rives all it's strength and support.— Without an HOuSF. of COMMONS, Tuefday, Jan. 11. TRIAL OF MR. Hastings. Mr. wigley, after a few preparatory observations, defcripiivc or the nature of his motion, and withes to avoid all retrospect whanver of what had hitherto pal- fed relative to the Impeachment, moved, " That a meftige he lent to the Lords, acquainting their Lord- fhino, that the Houfe of Commons, under tlie nrefent oireturfliances of the Impeachment of Mr. Hastings, is anxious ( o faring the prolecution thereof, on tlie part of the Houfe, to as fpeedy a conclufion as poffiblc; and that, in confequence, it was ready and ttefirous to at- tend it's profecution from day to day, and to fit as manv liotirs each day as might be convenient to their Lnrd- Ihips." - The question was put, and palled nem. con. AliEN Bill. Mr. Dundas prefaced his motion for tlie renewal of this Bill, with observing, that any doubts which might have been entertained as to the extent of it'.! powers, plight he explained When the new hill was introduced. He then moved for leave to bring in a bill, for the IC- gulation of Aliens arriving in this kingdom, or refident therein, 4. x. which was ordered accordingly. The Houfe in a Committee, Serjeant Watson in the chair, passed the French Property Bill, with a few amendments : which being agreed to, the report was re- ceived, & the bill tc amendments, ordered to be printed. Wednesday, Feb. 12. R OCHDALE CANAL. rin the question for the fecond reading of this Canal hill being put, Colonel Stanley, after stating his reasons for opposing the bill, moved as an amendment, that instead ot the word ',' Son'," ' this day six months,' should be in- ferred.--- On which a convocation Of some length en- sued between several gentlemen. The question being called for, a division took place — when their appeared in favour of the bill going to a Committee 105, against it 51,— Majority U was ordered on the motion of Mr. Bastard, that trie petition received from certain woolcombers, re- specting a machine for combing of wool, should be re- ferred to the consideration of a committee, above flairs.

Jt has been, the custom for thofe doubtful cha- rarters which come under the provisions of the Alien Bill, to get theiufelves arrested for debt, in order to prevent the operation of that Bill.— It certainly requires the interference of the Legisla- ture to introduce some clause in the Alien Bill to prevent Jacobin Emigrants from eluding the orders of Government to quit this kingdom, by throwing themselves into prison. This has been , done by two very notorious characters within the last ten days; particularly by one Deveaux. Their predileftion to this country is however evi- dent, as they prefer a prifon in London, to Liberty in France! Information was on Monday received at the Sierra- Leone- House, of the progress of the co- lony at Sierra- Leone to the 20th of December laft. The natives continued perfectly friendly; the neighbouring Chiefs shewed every desire of being connected with the company; some had fent their children to be educated at Sierra Leone, and many others proposed to fend them in the enfuing dry season. The rainy season had passed over without any considerable mortality ; and the Nova- Scotia colonists had maintained their health, and appeared to have become well inured to the climate. The trade was become much more brisk ; the cultivation was advancing both in the colony and parts adjacent; and there ap- pears to have been 110 difficulty in procuring the native labourers.— The rice, cotton, and other articles in the company's plantation, thrive ex- ceedingly, the fugar- cane excepted, which had been hurt by the white ants. The schools of the company contained between 5 and 400 children, chiefly Nova- Scotians, who appeared to have made full as much improvement as is common in European fchools under similar circumstances. The colony had gradually improved in order, and appeared to be advancing in every respect— An unfortunate fire, however, had accidentally hap- pened 011 board the company's storefhip York, by which ( lie was entirely confumed, together with all fuch articles as happened to be then 011 board, of which the value, if eftimated at prime coft, might be 8 or 9000I.; feveral thoufand pounds thereof being African produce, which was on the point of being fent to England. The whole lofs, including the value of the ( hip and the eftimated profits and charges to be added to the prime coft of the goods, is computed by the gwernor and council, on a rough calculation, to amount to between 14 and 1 $, oool. The St. Eustatia prize cause, has, at length, reached it's termination, and the agents are about to diftribute 64,0001. of the produce. The Com- manders, by fea and land, take something more than 5,000b each ; and the common men some- thing more than il. Rise of Land.— It is a singular circumstance, but correftiv true, that what the anceftors ot the pre- sent Duke of Portland gave but qoool. for, in the parish of Marybone, and around the New Road, now lets at 30,0001. a year"! What the family of Mr. Berners, the proprietor of Berners- street, purchased for 600I. now nets 3000I. an- nually ! The late storm of snow and wind has done a great deal of damage in the fields in different parts of the kingdom ; numbers of trees have been torn from tbeir roots, and fheds thrown down.— At Pickering, a man, a woman, and a boy, perilhed through the feverity of the wea- ther.— y\ t Ludlow, the houfe of Mr. Izzard was blown down; but though feveral perfons were in it, no lives were loft.— A farmer at Totteridge, and his servant, were lost in the storm, at Great Whittington. — Another unfortunate man was found dead near St. John Lec.— A pcrfon of the name of Carter, ia going from Whitby to Steaths, perished on the road.— Mr. John Da- vison, farmer, of Billilaw, near Berwick, on returning home from the market of that town, in that inclement fnowy night, missed his way upon Tweedmouth Moor, and he and his horse were next morning found dead in an inclosed coal- pit, with which that common abounds.— The Rev. Mr. Oliphant, minister of Largo in Fife, in returning home; a gentleman on his way between Dalkeith and Musselburgh ; a taylor and his journeyman, in returning from their work at Pennywick; all perished in the snow.— In the neighbourhood of Dumfries, a great number of sheep have been destroyed, and several shepherds, in their laudable endeavours to save their flocks, perifhed. Four of these unfortunate men were buried last week in Moffat, and about eleven are still missing.— The storm at Douglass- mill was the severest that has been fince the year 1745, and a great loss of sheep. Scarce a farmer but has lost fome, and fome farms four, five, of fix fcores. Several lives are faid to be loft.— By the fudden thaw, the Water of Endrick role to a great height, and fwept away part of the new bridge 011 the turnpike road to Calcreuch, and part of the bridge at Ballindalloch.— At Aberdeen, an old man at Leask, who had gone out to fee if his cows were safe, unfortunately perished . his wife, in looking for him, some time after, also pe- rished in the snow.— A barn belonging to the Earl of Winchilsea, at Burley, in Rutlandshire, was blown down, and feveral trees in the park blown up by the roots'. Two Dukes of Somerset, two Earls of Guild- ford, two Viscounts Montague, two Bishops of St. Aspah, have died fince the trial of Mr. hastings commenced. M. de Loyante, a French officer, who served with great diftinftion in the royal corps of artil- lery, made on Monday in Marlborough- gar- dens, in the presence of the Duke of Gloucester, Prince William, Generals Henry Clinton and Pattifon, Sir Sydney Smith, and many other of- ficers of distinction, a trial of his new- invented machine for throwing shells with greater precision and velocity than can possibly be done out of any picce of ordnance now tn use. The ma- chine threw 12 bombs in a minute, and it's ve- locity can still be increased. A remarkable circumstance occurred a few evenings since at a card party at Yarmouth. Four ladies met, whose combined age made 335 years, and who all enjoy perfect health and intellect. Tuesday night about ten o'clock, a fire broke out at the floor- cloth manufactory, Knightsbridge, which entirely confumed the fame, notwithstand- ing every effort to extinguish it. No lefs than 20, ocol. worth of property, with the buildings, was deftroyed, and not a farthing of either in- fured. Among other articles were all the new fcenes intended for Drury- lane play- house.— The above fire, it is faid, was occasioned by the negleft of a boy, who, in heating fome colour, suffered it to boil over, which immediately fet the whole premifes in a blare. A gentleman, brother to Captain Gambolt, of Sloane- street, was run over by an engine, and is since dead ; and a poor labouring man had his thigh broke by the fall of a piece of timber.— Great apprehen- fions were entertained for the barracks oppofite ; but the timely assistance the engines laved them, and alfo the houfe of mr. Harris, Manager of Covent- Garden, Theatre.— Mr. Harris had his stables burnt by the above fire. His houfc is im- mediately Contiguous to the floor- cloth manufac- tory. The crowd, round the Courts on Tuesday, of Attornies, wanting to be admitted, in order to avoid the new Tax, was the most singuiar thing ever known. It was the greatest legal mob that has been feen for years. Some Attornies loft their tails, others tneir fails, and hundreds crowded round the doors that could not get in. A bailiff's follower was indicted at the Man- chester sessions for brutally assaulting a poor man whilst in the aft of distraining upon his goods for one shilling rent of a cellar!— The court much to it's credit sentenced him to one year's imprison- mcnt. By the Court of King's- Bench in Ireland, it has ' been decided that Mr. A. H. Rohan shall not have a new trial ; aud judgment has been pronounced that he shall be imprisoned for two years, pay a fine of 500I. and find security to keep the peace for seven years, himself in 2000I. and two sureties in ioool. each. After sentence Mr. Rohan rose, and in a short speech justified his principles and his conduct.— He was then re- manded to Newgate, and conduced there by a back way.— He was attended in his carriage by Mr. Sheriff Jenkins,— Battalions of infantry and fqttadrons of cavalry lined the ftreets, and thus the whole moved to Newgate.— The Caftle yard had been filled during the day by a very large guard of horfe and foot, ready to be called forth ( hould any ftgns of riot or turbulence appear among the crowd. A curious matter was heard on Monday before the borough police, respecting the wife of a gen- tleman at Sheerness, who had eloped with a black fervant. They were pursued to the Nag's Head in the Borough on Sunday, where blackey fired - pistol at his pursuers, for which he was taken brought to this place, ancHnterred in St. Andre- Vs church, in the fame grave with thofe of his bro- ther, who died a few weeks ago. _ The family of Capt. Cook the celebrated na- vigator has been remarkably unfortunate. The father, moft of our readers will recolleft, loft his life at the ifland of Owhyhee; one ion was drowned in the Thunderer man of war ; two daughters were married to naval officers, and both drowned ; the youngeft fon lately died at Chrift's college of a fever, in the 18th year of his age ; and the eldeft fon loft his life as above- mentioned. BATH, Fei. 12. Monday fe'nnight the pack of fox- hounds belonging to the Duke of Beaufort unkennelled a fox at Chalkeley wood, which maintained a fevere chace of upwards of four hours, in which time he ran over a fpace of fifty miles of very hilly country, and was killed in the neighbourhood of Uley.— Thurfday morning following the fame hounds found a brace of foxes; the pack divided, and killed both after a fevere chace.— Saturday, the pack unkennelled a fox at Stanton- park, which they ran fo fharp, that Reynard was obliged to take refuge in a fmall cottage at Caftle- Coombs where he entered and jumped into a cradle, ( out of which an old wo- man had but a few moments before taken a young infant) his clamorous foes foon rulhed in and feized their viftim; the old wQman, not a little affrighted at thefe unexpected guefts, began to vent her fears ( or thefafety of her earthern ware, but flic feeined quite fatisned when the huntfman fhook hands with her with a piece of money for all that was broke.

The lady had two children by her husband.

Monday was fought, within a ring inclosed by a rope, on Sydenham Common, in Kent, a bat- tle between William Hooper, the tin- man, and George Mattocks, both well known in the science of pugilism. The fight lasted for an hour, in | Hhe courfe of which time there were a number of very hard fought rounds, and much skill was dis- played by both the combatants. At first victory appeared to incline to the fide of Mattocks, but Dame Fortune, ever fickle, at length favoured the Tin- man, who in the language of the fchools, " did his man." Mattocks was very much cut and bruifed. He appeared to do every thing in his power to win the battle; and, on the whole, it was a fair fight.— The Duke ot Hamilton, and feveral other patrons of the art, were prefent, COUNTRY NEWS.

THURSDAY, FEB. 13 -^ HIS day ( be seventh year of this Gen- tleman's trial commenced j and we trust it will be the last; for let men's opinions of Mr. Hastings be what they may, all feem tq agree that the length of his prosecution has exceeded the limits of strict and impartial justice. Since the beginning of this impeach- ment there have been no fewer than 149 changes in the chamber of Peers. They are as follow : Total Peers dead, or Scots Peers hi the laft, but not in this Parliament - 76 Total Creations, new Billions, and new Scots Peers 43 Total Poors lucceeding by defcent - - 4° After the uGjal ceremony, and Mr. Hastings being at the Bar, Mr. Law in a short speech stated that the evidence of Marquis Cornwallis, lately arrived, was of much importances Mr. Hastings, and therefore he prayed that their Lord& ips would permit that noble Lord to be examined on the part of Mr. Hastings. Mr. Grey said the Managers had no sort of ob- jection to the examination of the Marquis, and he trusted their Lordships & Mr. Hastings's Counsel would agree that Mr. Larkins should likewise be examined, although the Managers hsd closed their evidence. The points were agreed upon. but Lord Corn- . eallis not having taken his feat as Marquis, the Lords returned to their own Chamber, and fent a Message to the Commons, that they would further proceed 011 the trial on Wednesday next. LONDON, February 15. The two mails due this day from the Continent, have not yet arrived— in confequence, we have little new'to advance either from the borders of the Rhine, or from the interior of France.— As in all former wars, the prefent ( eafon of the year affords an account of few military movements^ of importance hevond what may be considered as in- dicative of foinething about to be done fo foon as practicable.— Seldom a day paffes without fome reports from the feat of war in Flanders— they arc, however, of that nature, to create no alarm refpefting immediate confeqnences— all parties at prefent repofe upon their arms.— In this dearth of aftual news, rumour takes it's place; for theSe two or three days we have been aflured, even in the inidft of the moll vigorous preparations for war, that peace has been folicited on the part of the allies, and rclufed on that of the French.— Left this ( hould be taker up more ferioufiy than it deti rves, we are called upon to ilate to our readers how moft likely it originated. Such an idea has been circulated among the deluded populace of France, by the defnerate rulers of that country, and it Serves to flatter the public opinion into a belief that France is on the eve of giving laws to europe; a belief that at all times was, and ever will lie, Sufficient to make a French- Irian happy under the preffure of the wortl of despotism.— Hence has arifen the above report in England, and it even extended to Vienna ; but that anv kind of terms it was ever in agitation to o! fl- r, or even accept, while the prefent ruling faftioi) of France Hi all exift, we are inclined to difpute altogether. We do not know through what channel any intelligence can have come from France, but it is reported this day, that in confequence of the late arbitrary decree respecting the confiscation of property in the foreign funds, a general clamour of difaffeftion has broken out, which has extend- ed itfulf to the army of the North, where a moll alarming miiriny has been the confequence. ' Hie Manheim gazette dates, that the Duke of brunswick, Generals Mollendorff, Brown, and kalkreuth, met at Franckfort, on the 30th, to concert the future operations of the combined ar- rauss, aitJ that the Duke afterwards retired in di thicknefs to pfftte& the men at the gans from grape- fhot or mufqurtry. Sir Sydney Smith, who has been honoured with knighthood by the court of Sweden, for his fervices in the Baltic, was the only officer who made a tender of his fervices ift tlie hazardous enterprize of burning the French flew at Toulon. Only one Jailor turned out as a volunteer for that bufinefs— the danger was held fo imminent. Private letters mention, that in the hafte of eva- cuating Toulon, Sir Gilbert Elliot was obliged to leave his plate behind him, valued at 2600I. to- gether with the created part of his wearing ap- parel, and that of his fuite. The King of Spain has contented to the con- dition propofed by Sir Tames Marriott, with re- gard to the St, Jago prize ; and that all Britifh fhipsre- taken by ( hips of war, or others, belong- ing to Spain, ( hall be reliored on the fame foot- ing. He only defires that the cargo of the St. Jago may l; e given up, a bail- bond being given for the value, which may be awarded by the King in council, to whom the captors have ap- pealed. Tax'on Attornies.— In the Houfe of Commons on Thurfday.— Mr. Rofe faid, it haying been erroneoufly conceived, that thefumof one hun- dred pounds ( hould be. paid for every admiffion into the Several court* in which an attorney fhould praftice, he thought it proper to ( late, that it was ther intention of the bill, that the futn of one hundred pounds only ( hould be paid upon the In- dentures, or one hundred pounds upon the ad- mijjion. Letters from Whitby, and other parts of the coaft, give melancholy accounts of the damage done to the ( hipping in thofe parts ' oy the tlorm on Saturday Se'nnight.

The French, having given up all idea of conquest towards the Rhine, have determined to retard the proi; refs of the allies towards France in that quarter, bv desolating the whole country which they had taken possession Of in the Pala- tinate, Treves, and the neighbourhood of Man- heim. They have carried off, in an immense number of waggons, all the moveables of every kind, and have demolished all the castles and houses that could favour the operations of the enemy. Bv' a letter from an officer belonging to the troops under Sir Charles Grey, dated frotn on board his Majesty's ship Veteran, at sea. Jan. 2, we learn, { hat from the time of their sailing they had had verv favourable weather. Their naval force confided of three ships of the line, 3 ( hips of 44 guns with troops, a frigate, a bomb- ketch, and 2,4 tranfports with ( tore:., Src. They had not fallen in with anv enemy. On the 17th of December, Sir John Jervis, in the Boyne of 98 guns, came off fenchal road, in the Island of Madeira, when he made the signal for the Quebec frigate and two transports, then in the road, to join him, which they immediately did ; and the Admiral proceeded on his voyage, leaving behind him a supply of wine for his squadron, which he did not choose to wait for. The Quebec frigate and Zebra sloop of war, having under their convoy fome transports, had arrived at Madeira on the 16th of December. The Ouebec had carried into Madeira, where the cargo~ will be fold, a Swedish vessel, loaded with about ? Soo bushels of wheat, on account Of the Republic of Genoa. A long confutation was held the other day be- tween Mr. Pitt, the Marquis Cornwallis, and Earl Moira, at the former's house in Downing- street, when the subject of the war, and the plan laid down for the invasion of the coast of France, were again fully discussed. This meeting is fup- pofed to have been held, purposely to take the opinion of the Marquis, 011 some points of mo- ment which have been called in question. The Camps are intended to be formed in this country next month unless the weather is un- commonly fevers, in which cafe the troops will go into cantonments in the neighbourhood of their respective camps, till the feafon permits their taking the field. The grand measure of a descent on the coast of England, the conduct of which the leading Ja- cobins of Paris say, must be kept a profound secret — Politicians on this fide of the water pretend to have found out will take place early in March. There are many people who confidcr an inva- fton ot this country by the French as a very f ro table attempt. The probability, however, is no more than this; that they will lend upon this ex- pedition forty or fifty thoufand Sans Culottes of the loweft order, and whofe lives they do not value at a farthing each.

Agricultural Report for January. The Lent feed feafon lias already commenced well in tlie liiuthetn and cafttrn counties; the early ploughed lays, and the fallows laid up dry, worked well for beans, peafe, barlev, and oats, as loon as thefnow was off'the ground. — Lincolnfhire, and the diftritt ltill more northward, not being fo well drained, are likely to he backward in their fpring fowing; nor are the far- thers in the weft fo early this l'eafou as might have been esuefted. The late froft, though of no long continuance, has been of general fervlce to the young wheats, not only in deftroying the ( lug and worm, but in checking thole plants in rich foils which began to run too proudly. The turnips have ftood the winter, and produced much more leed than was looked for.—- The coleleeds were cut by the ( harp weather; but from the abundance of luxuriant tares and rye through all parts of the kingdom, there is but little danger now ot any fcarcity of fpring feed. Hay is falling in price, but continues dearer in moft parts of the country than in the metropolis. Our ac- counts from the Hock matters, in different parts of the kingdom, fpeak of a general good fall ot lambs this feafon. The weftern Hocks however, are much tainted with the fcab; and the fouth downs have had more unfoiind dock this winter than they have known for many years before. Wool keeps it's laft month's prices. The long forts have had a frilling advance, from the preffing demand for various military articles of woollen. Horfes are reduced in price at lead 20 per cent, with- in thefe fix months. Sinithfield has been well fupplied with fat ftock through the winter. The Leicefterfhire and Bucking- hamfhire grafs oxen never came off better; and tin Eflex, Norfolk, and Suffolk turnip bealt never died in higher condition ; in confequence, prime beef has been more rcafonable than is generally the cafe at this time of the year. Veil is high priced; but lamb, mutton and pork, are fa:: from dear. Only two or three droves of lean cattle arc vet come up, the few lots expol'ed to fale 011 Epping Forclt are almolt out of price. - JUUOJLI | | IT II HHP A muftcal piece, called the Purfe, or the Generous Tar, ivas performed on Saturday night at the Hay- market Theatre, forthejirH time.— The following ftanzas, foppofed to be fung by a galley flame, ivill furnijh no ttnfavourable fpccimen of the Poetry.

LONDON, February 1 YESTERDAY gave birth to a great variety of reports; the moll prominent of which was that of an invafton. This apprehenfion had an evident effeft on the funds, which fell about 3- 4ths per cent. It vtfas Rated that certain news had been received that the French expedition fit- ting out at Havre de Grace, was on the point of failing. We are extremely doubtful of the truth of this report; at the fame time we know that the French have collefted a very large torce along their fea- coaft on the Channel, which merits, as we have no doubt it has, the ferious attention of Govern- ment. Certain it is, that the Cabinet has c^ eifts of theutmoft importance now under confideration ; and on this account the bufinefs in both Houfes of Parliament, which ftood for yefterday, was poft- poned, at the requeft of his Mnjefty's Mintfters. But whether theobjeft of deliberation is the news of any particular event from abroad ; or, what is more probable, the confideration of the plans of operation for the enfuing campaign, for which purpofe feveral diftinguiftied officers have been fummoncd, and for which the Auftrian Colonel Mack iscometotown, is not for us to determine. — In the mean time, it is neceffary for us to obferve that on ThurClay laft Government bought up jo flat- bottomed boats, each of which is to carry two guns; and two old men of war, of 74 guns, were ordered to be cut down, and toferve as floating batteries.— Times. Yefterday, in the Houfe of Commons, Sir Eranci Baff'et ftated the manner and quantity of tolls now taken, and pointed out fome abufes in the praflices of millers, which he faid the_ poor were obliged to fubmit to, as they were unable to gain redrefs by law, by reafoli of the expence beinj too heavy in the pi'efent mode of proceeding, which was by indictment. To remedy that defect, he propofed'to introduce in his Bill " a claufe, giving fumniary juril'diition to the judices of the peace in thefe points. He moved for leave to bring in a Bill to regulate the price taken by millers for grinding of corn, which was agreed to. SHERIFFS appointed by His Majejly in Council, for the Year 1794. Bedfordfhire.

They afterwards cut the bridle reins of his horfe, and made feveral ftrokes at his body, which, fortunately, only penetrated his cloaths; dragged him from his horfe, rifled his pockets, and almoft ftrangled him with his heck hand- kerchief!

Extra ft of a Letter from Falmouth Fed. " The. Antelope sailed from Port Royal Nov. 27.— On the first of December, on the coaft of Cuba, not far from Cumberland harbour, .( he fell 311 with two schooners, apparently of some force; the Matter We up for jamaica ; , the Atlanta, one of the privateers, out failed her consort, left her, and continued' the chace all ' day, and. till, about four P. M. when the wind failing, she rowed up with the packet, and having exchanged feveral shots, sheered off" again. During the night i e frequently bore down & shot were fired on both sides. At five on Monday'morning, it being calm, she rowed up and grappled the Antelope on the starboard side, pouring in a broadlside, and made an attempt to board, which was repulsed with great slaughter; by this brOadside,'- unfor- tunately the Master, Curtis, who commanded, fell, as did the ship's iteward and a French gen- tleman, aid- de- camp to Monsieur Loppenos, a passenger, and the first mste was shot through the body ; the command. then devolved on the boats- wain, for tilt fecond mate had died of the fever after their sailing from Port Royal,- who, with the few brave men left, assisted by the passengers, repulsed repealed attempts to board, during a considerable time the vessels were along- side. The boatswain at last observing that they had cut their grapplings, and were attempting to sheer off, nn aloft himself, and lashed the privateer's square sail yard to the Antelope's fore fhrouds, and immediately proceeded to pour in a few vol- lies of small arms, which did great execution, the survivors of the schooner's. crew called for quarter, which was immediately granted them. The prize was taken possession of, and carried Into Annota Bay about 11 next morning. " The Antelope failed from Portugal with 27 hands, but had four lost before the action by the fever, and then two unfit for service, fo that reckoning four dead, two ill, and the Doctor, who must necessarly go to his quarters in the Cock- pit, they entered the engagement, with only 20 men, besides passengers. " j'he Atlanta was fitted out at Charleston, mounted eight j- pounders, and carried56 men. " Mr. Rodm, formerly in the Navy, a pas- senger, signalized himfclf. *' Rnurii of the- killed and * xo « n led.— Atlanta— Killed during the action 30; since dead 3 ; frrft and fecond Captain wounded defperately, the iirft Captjiin fince dead ; wounded but living, 14-, * — Total 40.—— Antelope— Curtis the Master, and the ship's Steward, killed; one fin. ee dead; Mitchell the First Mate, & c two others, wounded* " This appears to be the most gallant action during the war " The House of Representatives at Jamaica have acted nobly ; they have voted 1oo guineas as a reward, 200 to be paid to curtis's widow, 100 to Mitchell, the Firat Mate, 100 to the Boatswain, and 100 among the rest of the crew."

Mr. NEWNHAM, a capital far( per'anil timber- merchant, of Weft- hill, An3ingly, in Sufl'ex, was. con- fined to his houi'e, and rendered irsca^ fsfc'e of bufinefs, by a virulent Scorbutic Eruption breaking, out in varjous ^ jarts of his bpdjf; one of his- Jegs was fatiled to double' it's Ordinary fize, aind. Ill's lungs were'; fa- affefted, that refphation was difficult - and painful to" a nioft'alarniing degree.

BATH, Feb. 7. On Tuesday last, as a boy of 1 j years of age was oiling the wheels of a .{ team en- gine, at one of the coal- works of Timsbury, by imprudently venturing too near, he was caught by his trowaers 011 one of the cpgs of' the wheels, • which, by the violence of it's motion, inastantly tore off one of his legs ' just below the calf, and at the next revolution of the wheel, the other leg was broke to pieces, and his thigh, quite to the groin, lacerated in a most shocking manner. Three eminent surgeons in the neighbourhood at- tended about two hours after the accident, but finding all hopes of his recovery vaniftied, they declined putting him to the further pain of ampu- tation. Their opinion was fully justified by the erent, for in a few hours after the poor boy was released from his mifery. OXFORD, Feb. 8.

THESE Pills have been prepared, and given the greatcft Satisfaifion for upwards of fe- venty Years by DICEY and Co. at their Original Me- dicine Warehoufe, No. 10, Bow Church- Yard", London. They. are fipgularly efficacious in bilious and dropfical Complaints, and all Dil'oritersof the Stomach & Bowels. They generally operate purgatively, but in certain Cafes by L'rine. They promote Oiggrtion, and create an Ap- r- iti,< K. They remove Obftruflions in the Kidneys, and confeqiiently are Antidotes to the Stone and Gravel, but for the Expulfion of Worms either in Children or grown Perfons, the Materia Medica has no Equal. InIllnefs in- cident to the Fair Sex, thefe Pills are incomparable ; and Travellers, who are too oftefi obliged to drink all Kinds ol Liquors, as well as Sea- faring People, fhould never be unprovided with them, as by frequently taking- one or two of them, they are kept from Ooftfvenefs," Scurvies, Fevers and- moft malignant Diftem'pers. They may ba taken at any Seafon, and are fo innocent and eafy in Ope ratiotu- that they may be fafely ufed from Infancy to old Age. The Scot- S Pills prepared by Diciy and Co. retain their Virtue for any Period of Time, arid , ri all Climates ; and from the Peculiarity of the- Compofition, they nevei* run together, an Advanrage/ 10 other Scots Pills poflefs: And therefore, for Exportation, or the Ufe of Gentlemen in the Maritime Line, they have a manifeft Superiority.
