Gentleman ( Maj. Maitland) in another House, on the Expedition which he had the honour lo command. His Lordship ex plained, at fomc length, the general outlines of- tile expedition, the views of his Majesty's Miniiters, and the communications which had tal. cn place with the royalists on the subject. He had been fent for, he said, by his Majesty's Ministers on the i?< h ot O to her. and informed by them oi the succours with which i; was intended the Royalists should be furnished. lie oid nor hesitate to undertake the Expedition proposed nor that responsibility which he considered as attached to it. The Royalists had demanded a certain force to co- operate with them, and his Majesty's Ministers had appointed a much greater force than they had re quested: It only remained, that a point of junction should be fixed; and before that could be effected, some signals were agreed upon, and foilte frigates sent to repeat thole signals ; but they were not anwered by tile royalists.— On the loth' of November, fomc persons were lent to concert measures with them. The Royalists had required Artillery and Artillery- men, as they had scarce any one - who understood the use of cannon, His Lordship had represented to his Majesty': Ministers, who had entrusted him with a discretionary power 011 this Expedition- the necessity of bringing' some persons from Flanders. tile management of Artillery ; and as he hoped to have loaned an immediate junction with the Royalifts, lie had appointed two French Officers, of great merit, Ms Aides- du- Camp, and another as his Secretary; antl under all circumstanccs, he thought himself justified in malting those appointments. His Lordship laid, if it should be thought that he had done wrong, lie was willing that the whole expellee attending that measure should be deducted out of the appointments which were attached to the command v, it'i which he had been honoured. He could not make known the names of these officers, becaufe they hall children and friends in France, to whom such ' a. pub- licity might be fatal. But, laid his Lordlhip, what- ever difference of opinion men may entertain of tin French Revolution, god knows they have suffered enough : it is now a Common Cause, and it is also the Cause of Humanity He concluded by laying, that lie ti. ok the whole responsibility upon himself, bc- Canfc his Majesty's Ministers had fully approved of the appoint- ments he had recommended to them. After a few words from Lord Lauderdale, in justifi- cation of1 he notice that had been taken in the lioufie of Commons of theft' appointments, Lord Grenville laid, mat his Majclty's Minillers, after having fo fully approved of what the Earl of Moira had done, would share the responsibility with him, Monday, Februaiy 17.

VVjvcnhe predicted what might happen from what had been; when he lelected, compared, rcal'or- ed, and deduced; he could declare tlj. it, in his opinion, the French prevailing fyftem was a fyltem of action and re- action, of production and re- produtlion; though per- petually Jfiy inf off" iiv particles, yet never exhaulted; though comihually diiiiinilliing, continually renewed. tie then jiroceeUcd to t tic ex... 11 illation of the Trea- ties 011 the table— Treaties, which I'urprized him, as they were devoid of'any fixed principle, and deftitutc of air. beneficial compact.--- In this review he ad- verted to Rullia, that Colossus of europe, a power i'o enormoUsly gigantic, and of such terrific aspect as to be viewed with awe and- guarded against with tltc utmost dread. Referring. to Spain, he conceived the treaty. opposite to every arrangement of any former period. He re- viewed the treaty of 1GS6, and the treaty of Worms, wnich all Statesmen hud concurred in calling the fnn- d'. miental establishment of Europe. When he com- pared the conduct of Aduiinilfration with that of thole- jllalti ious paribus who ligned. the treaty at Worm he lamented tu. tt they were neither directed bythc fame motives nor guided to the lainc- ellcft. llecDnimended the noble and. grand individual charafler of the Spa- iiiardsebutexprefl'ed' hiidil'approbation of the Spanith < io. crnment, . is founded upon tile principles of a dark and injUvtious policy anit a jealous and ambitious enter; ' r e.

The object of the prel'etit motion, laid lie, is to addrel's his Majcfty to forfake his Allies. Where is the member that will concur in this dishonourable meafure The prtfent motion could only have 4 inifchievous tendency, by creating a fufpicioii that we we're not unanimous in the prolccutiuiiof the war ;— a war ill whicll our Religion, and to fay all in one word, our ( ionttitittion, was at ( take ; for it had been expressly dec'lafedi that our in- famous Constitution, ' as the Go'nveittiomfts were | ileafed to term it) mult be dettroyed.

The Americans Jiatf been Itigmaiizetl with eprthcts, limilarly opprobrious with thofe Which we now apply to France; but the re- l'ult of all was, that we had treated with America.

Peace,- lie laid, was almolt univcrl'ally dc- fired in this country ; 1t was the' only remedy for tile- ravages of war. France, if Ihe had'been, left to her- felf, would never have endangered the peace of this country; and 1 thai 1 ever object, faiil the Noble Duke, thiscountryintei'fering in the internal regulations of another. He condemned our alliance with Amtt- iaaiul Rullia, and rec- omuiended ail alliance with Frallce as a barrier to tile Continental Powers.

Such were the rcal'ons which had lod him to Itep for- ward coolly and dilpallionately to do his duty. Lord Portchester laid, that tiie motion was the fame as that which a. Noble earl •. Stanhope had advanced fome time ago; but the Noble Lord had not proved h'ovV il was practicable or honourable ; honourable, in- dued, he had not called. it, for his advice Was to break with our allies.

Lord Guildford lupported the motion, and laid he believed there was, as much good faith in the Conven- tion as had ever been inherent in the French Monarchy. The Duke of Leeds oppofed the motion, lie jaw 110 eafon why tliat opmion which had been lb very lately given, for carryhi ,' oil the war with vigour, lhould he lo fuddenly changed; and therefore conlidcrcd the motion as totally unnccelTary. Lord Grenville ooiwurreil^ in the opinion that this point could never be too much advanced to the public attention, as the mgre it was difculled, lie wa:, cou- inced still firmer wotild. be ' the conviction of the ne- ellity of continuing tile war with unremitting energy.

The French ehai'adter was eli'entially holtile to all t) ie Governments of Europe. The war had been entered into with the- full concurrence of Parliament— they had gone up to the Throne, requeu- ing his Majesty to pursue the most vigorous hostilities -— with " an addrels, promiling to coperate with his MajelJy in puifuin;; thewar^ with vigour'; and within three weeks, faid Lord grenville, fnall we change our opiutofi,. relax in our operations, and dilhoiiourably abaiu{ on our allies?

The Duke of York certainly resumes the command of the British troops, and will ere long return into Flanders for that purpose. General Mack is ? r> have the principal conduft of the ensuing campaign— IV greatest hopes of success are entertained, fronl tlie known abiKty of this great officer. General Mack is a native of Wurzhurg, and fon of a tradefman of that ;> lace. He began his military career as a con mon hdlTar in an Aulfrian n ument, but his uncommon talents for military drawing, his unwearied application to this art, and his extraordinary fk'U 111 laying down plans, loon rnifed him from obfeurity, and introduced him to the notice of Marilia! Lnudohn. This General employed him on different occaftons, and attaehed him to the ftaff of the army under the character of a Geographic Engineer. His diftingnifhed conduct at the affair of Lilfa ftill more ingratiated hjm with thatgreatCommander. Field Marshal Laudohn had made all his dif- . pofitions for crossing the Danube, and attacking that place. Mr. Mack,. w'- o had formed the plan of p- ffing the river, as well as that of the attack, went the night before to the Marfhal to receive his lafl orders; when that General informed him, that he had juft received intelligence of the Turks >. avjng been reinforccd at Liffa by a corps of 30,000 men,, and that of cpurfe he had given up his project of an attack, . as, after Ifeving palfed the river, in cafe of meeting with any dif- aiier, he fliould be at a lofs how. to effeft his re- treat. Mr". Mack did not credit the report of the reinforcement, but could not prevail on the. Marfhnl ' to exectite his ir. tf" : d march. Mr. Mack, left the General,' crofl 1 tiie Danube in a boat, accompanied by one fin. 1- hulan, ftolc into the place, gf> t certain information of the fup- 1' ofed reinforcement not having arrived, took r. Turkish, officer prisoner in the Suburb, repalfc- i the Danube, and at four o'clock in the mottiin., informed the Marshal of his expedition.^ On this report the Austrian army passed the river, and took I. iff. t, ' he whole garrifon of which place, confifting of 6000 men, were made prifoncrs of war. In the prefent v.- ar, Colonel Mack, still at- tached to the ftaff, has much contributed to the fuccelfes obtained at the beginning of the cam- paign, efpecially at the attack and capture of the Camp of Famars, for which he made all the ne- ceflary dispositions. In this affair he received a wound, the cure of which obliged him to repair to Bruffels. He expefled to be made Quarter Matter General of Prince Cobourg's. army, but that place - having fallen to the fhare of Prince Hohenlpc, hii wound afforded him a pretext to retire to Vienna. Called there to the conferences held with refpcct to the plan of operations for the enfuing campaign, he has caufed a fyiiem to be adopted totally different from that which has been purfned in the preceding campaign; This he has laid at. BrulTels before the commanding Generals of the cor, fedorate troops, and his vifit to this country was to communicate the fame to our government. We learn that every where it has met with the fulled approbation. The Marquis Cornwallis will immediately be inverted with the Commandership in Chief of all the forces in England. The cabinet were di- vided in opinion, whether this poll fhould be filled by his Lordlhip, or Lord AmherTi:; the calling voice only gave it in favour of the former. It is faid to be the intention of the Admiralty to order out immediately several small squadrons, consisting of a line of battle ship, uvo or three frigates, and two or three floops of war or'cut- ters each, for the purpofe of'cruizing off the French ports, to watch the motions of the enemy; P, y this means a fufHcient force will beat lea, ready to intercept any attempts of the enemy to fend a~ force to our cOast. ' The harbour of Cherbourg is the port from whence all the enemy's frigates and crttizers fail, which have at different times in felled the chan- nel. Their crui/. e is generally confined to four or five days at the farthest ; and before anv infor- mation can reach our coaft, the enemy's fhips are in port again'— This proves the neceflity of our hrfVing a small fleet of obfervation always cruizing in the channel; for otherwise our trading vessels are always cxpofed to danger. We believe that the Board of Admiralty means to adopt this fyftem in future. Madame du Barre considered herfelf in fo much security, that two days before her arreft, she declined the offer of joining a party then leav- ing France, and which since arrrived in perfect security in London.— This unfortunate Lady at the time of her arrest, had specie in her house to the amount of a million and half of livres, which was immediately feiv.:* d " ppon by the rapacious ' Sans Culottes. The fear of this property being confiscated, which it was impossible for her to bring away immediately, might have been one motive with that deluded lady for resisting the friendly solicitation of the gentleman who of- fered to conduct her to England. A gallant and desperate enterprize was fome time since effected by a number of English sailors, [. who had been taken prisoners by the French cruizers in the West- Indies; about 2 jo of them were confined at St. Marc, in the Bite of Leo- peace for the city of London, at Guildhall, Mary Hill, an oH bawdy- houfe keeper in a court in Bishopsgate- street, was indicted by the parish for keeping a house of ill fame, and making a practice of trepanning young girls from their pa rents, and fending them into the streets to pick up men. Three girls appeared, the eldeft of whom was not quite .' twelve years of age, who gave their evidence against her. The charge being clearly proved, the jury found her guilty and the court sentenced her to stand in the pillory in Bishopsgate- street for one hour, and to lie im- prisoned iii Newgate for two . years. From an American paper, of the' date of De- cember 16, the following advertisement is taken : —" Lost where it was dropped, last night, an empty, bag with a cheese in it.' The bag was marked T. D. but the letters were mm out. N. B. The person who lost it, never missed it until it was gone; so if any perfon. will bring i( to him, he shall be rewarded for his trouble."

The difference between Sir Edward Pellew and Captain Faulkner, relative to the share of the Cleopatra, captured by the former, has been de- cided by arbitration in favour of Sir Edward.

E^ TJ— H E movements and preparations on || our frontiers announce that every dif- 11 polition is making for the opening of JI the next campaign. According to an exaft statement which has been drawn « p of the force of the Austrian, English, and Hanoverian armies which defend our territory from the fea as far as Luxembourg, they amount nearly to 100,000 men, and that exclufive of . the lick, or Dutch army, alfo deftined to aft with it. Such a force fliould be capable of not only baf- fling every effort of the enemy to recover their conquered fortreffes, but even of purfuing our advantages with additional vigour. The plan of attack againft the frontiers of France has been finally fettled amongft the Generals of the co- alefced powers, and it is faid the whole of their forces will bedireftedagainft Lille, the pofleflion of which important place would always fecure this country from the attempts of the French, and guarantee Well- Flanders from thofe ravages which lay wafte that line province. In the in- terim the skirmishing continues at the advanced polls occafionallv. On the 6th inlt. our light troops took feveral Waggons near Cambray, loaded with wine and brandy for the garrifon of that place, after having difperfed a detachment < of horfe chaHeurs which efcorted them. On the other hand, the Conventionalifts on the 7th ad- vanced againft our cantonments between Lille and Tournay, and after a fmart fkirmifh, not • only obliged feveral of our advanced pofts to re- treat, but alfo plundered fome farms, and car- ried off all the provifions they found in them. All the Generals who had met here to concert the plan of the approaching campaign, have, after lome long conferences, fettled the bufineis, and are gone to place themfelves at the head of their respective armies 011 the frontiers. Four thoufand tiico, cavalry and infantry, palled by lately in their way to join the army, together with a tranf- porr of liege artillery, and a large convoy of bombs and balls, from Malines. British Army in Flanders,— Oudenarde Feb. 11, We are ail in a bultle preparing for the field— Yefterday the troops received orders to hold them- selves in readinefs to march at an hour's notice, as the French were confiderably augmenting their advanced pofts with troops and cannon : a ge- neral attack of the cordon is, therefore,_ hourly expected. The army at Ghent have received the fame orders as ours, and every officer has his bag- gage packed up and ready to move at the fhortell notice. The 37th regiment march at ten o'clock to- day to relieve the 14th, who have been fta- tioned at the advanced post of Wevelgheim, be- tween Menin and Courtray. I HOUSE of COMMONS, Tuesday, fan. 18. ConVOY S. Mr. Fox rose to bring forward his promifed motion on this subject, vv hich he prefaced with a tpeech afcon- fidcrable length, replete with details of a complicated • And del'uhory nature. He obferved that tlie great failures in the important fervice of Convoys may not be folelv imputable to the negligence ot' Government; they iiMKlit as well aril'e from the want of refources ; find the objedt of his motion, which was for an enquiry into the b'ufinels, could belt determine the point; it would go to exculpate Adimniltration, if innocent; to Jix theltigma of ccnl'ure if guilty, and thereby atibrd fucli a lellon as would compel Government to p » v a proper degree of attention to the Convoy fervice in fu- ture.— He then entered into his details, which were a vircuniftantial and minute narration of the dilk- rent facts which had been ollcrcd to him, in the courl'c of his information 0: 1 the fubiedt. From very relpectablc aurhoritv he had learnt, that 15 or 16 Ihips had been vaptured from the Baltick merchants, but he had iince hurn allured that c or 6 only had fallen into the hands *> f the enemy, From tliel'e circumftances he, felt it a duty to apologize to the Houle tor his former alien ion; but although he made this candid acknowledgment, ret he thought his deficiency of intelligence on this [ lead was far from beingefl'eutial, when he enumerated the various lotles which the mercantile world had fuf- 1 allied-. Mentioning tile different fleets, both outward kud homeward bound, lie began with the Elfineur fquadmir, which had failed under convoy of the Tlutincs frigate; many vellets had feparatedfrom'the convoys, conJ'equentlv Government were not to blame for tlie captuies which that fleet had fuftered. In re. viewing the Newfoundland, Qtiebcck, and Mediterra- nean beets, he leverely cenl'ured the conduct of rlie Admiralty; and, after being 011 his legs upwards of two hours, he moved for the appointment of a Com- mittee of Enquiry into the fubjeit, when he would produce Inch evidence as would fully corroborate his allel'tions. Admiral Gardner rofe to reply to the obfervations and allegations of the Right Hon, Gentleman. He ob- ferved, that in oppofitiou to the voluminous and va- riegated detail now adduced, he would put in a ge- ifteral wa\ rile united anil publicly avowed fentiments of the great mercantile body of the kingdom, which were unanimous in aliening, that upon the whole, the trade to the different quarters had never received fuch eiletlnal protection, as during the prefent war.-— In fupport qf this, the Hon. Admiral brought forward feveral extracts from official documents, wherein were let forth the feveral applications which had been made bx different mercantile bodies for convoys, with their < l\: cs, the particulars of the meafures taken by the Admiralty in confequencc, thidnterent fliips difpatch- t- don the convoy fervice, the dates of their failing, the unavoidable delays on accoun. . if weather, want of men, and the procraftination of the fhjp- owners them- lillves, from all of which he deduced conclufions very ditfei ent from what had been drawn by the Right Hon. Gentleman ' Mr. Fox and demonffrated, fecminglV, very much to the l'atisfaction of the Iloufe, that tlie conduct of the Hoard of Admiralty was fuch, as, inltead of cenfure, del'erved the thanks of the mercantile in- tcrdt. Alderman Anderson in support of what fell from the Hon. Admiral, obferved that he had enquired very mi- nutely into the fubjeit, and the refult was, that he coiild leani that only two Ihips of all thole who had availed themfelves of the piote& ion of convoy, had bceli captured. With refpect to the Riglrt Hon. Gen- tleman's flatement, relative to the Baltick fleet, he contended it was in a great degree, erroneous, very lew, even of thole who had departed from their con- voy, were taken, the depredations were committed, lie laid, by onlv two French pi ivateers, one Called Le Sans pareil, aiid the other le Patriote ; the former of thefe fctul been chaced by a Britiih thip of war, was driven shore, » nd bilged on the rocks of Norway, the other was actually taken. He alio observed, that nothing could more i'ully evince the general good opinion which the eommvfcial'world entertained of the lafctv of our TraW, than the rate of inl'uralice, which was Tail year tilt fume as in time of peace. major Maitland,, spoke at lomc length, and with mucli warmth iu support of tile allegations and argu- ment., of hi; Right Hon. Friend Mr. Fox. Ill tile con- ciuliou of his fpcech, he t< x> k occalion to ojilervei mat though his Hon. Friend ( Mr.. Sheridan) was pre- twt, vet his Hate of health was fuch as unhappily ?. revented him from bringing forward his proofs ot the ctefencelefs itate of Halifax and the coloiiv of Nova- Scotia, that night, and the unprotected llate of it's trade, yet 011 a future day he would do it, and give tlie Right Hon, Secretary an opportunity of reading more mutilated extract from letters on the occalion. Alderman Curtis contended for the effeilual protec- tion which had been given our trade during the prelent war, he compared it to what had been afforded during the late war, and a'. l'erted that the prefent rate of in- surance would evince in what a I nferior degree of elli- been ordered for the homeward- bound West- India fleet — he faid it was shamefully inadequate; would any professional man fay, that two 74- gun Ihips, unaided by smaller vessels or frigates, were sufficient for the protection of so numerous a fleet ? With respect to what had been laid of the rates of infurance, it would l> e found, 011 a candid examination, that very different : v: es cov. Id be drawn from the prefent rates than jjccvl by gentleman opposite to him. ami Afr. brandling at fome length fup- tet< jeut and obfervations of Mr. Fox. beech of fome length, defended the he though it, he said, a duty incumbent upon him, independent of every personal consideration, to give his negative to the motion s and he believed he might, without forfeiting any portion ot that confidence with which he was honoured by tire I loufe, declare, that more groundless charges awiinJl Government never were submitted to Parliament. Mr. Pitt, after replying to the arguments of Mr. Fox and Major Maitland, entered into a very minute review of the natements of the arrivals, the departures, the circumstances occurring in the voyages of the various fleets of convoys; and. from the 1110ft indifputablc teftimonies, made it evident, that there was 110 want of vigour, attention, or ability, 011 tile part of the Admiralty. When enumerating and commenting on the naval ' tranfaflions of I alt year , he beltowed a warm panegyric oil Admiral Gardner, wnofc talents, he faid, merited the higheft commendation.— Advancing to a conclufioti, he remarked, that if the prelent motion Were agreed to, there was at once an end of all parlia- mentary and official dignity. It would tend toeltab- lifh a principle of enquiry to which human fagacity could prescribe no limits. It would, in fome inftances, fe.' ve 10 fcreen delinquents— it would teach thole, who had hitherto been unreal'onable, to be more turbulent and infatiable—- it would encourage the fpirit of com- motion to rear the lignal of difcontent, and eonvulfe, if not diffolve all the lii> ksof foeiety.— J therefore re- jeft this motion, faid he, convinced of it's inutility ; and believe that it is altogether groundlelj and vex- atious. I l'corn that l'pecics of falfe delicjcy, which on urgent occalions denies tile acknowledgment of er- ror when the judgment has been mUlead : Confcious, however, of acting agreeably to the rule of rectitude, I wave all perfonal conlidcrations, leaving my own character, and that of my colleagues, to tiie decilion ot the Houie and the Country. Mr. Fox made a very animated reply, commenting 011 Mr. Pitt's fpeech with hisufual political acumen. The Himse divided Ayes 48, Noes — Majority for the Minittry 154. Adjourned at a little before three o'clock. LONDON, February 20. Tuefday night at ten o'clock, Mr. Schaw, the mesenger, with dispatches from Lord Hood, & Mason, from the Britifh head- quarters in Flan- ders, arrived at the_ Secretary of State's office. Captain Ramsay arrived at the fame time with dilpatches from Lord Elgin at Brussels. They were detained feveral days at Ollend, which place they left at two o'clock on Monday, and landed yefterday morning at Dover. The French, having made great additions to their llrength along all the neighbouring frontier from Lifle to Dunkirk, threaten another inroad upon Weft - Flanders, and already fome. fevere lkirinifhes have taken place, at the Allied out- pofts. Gun- boats are faid to have failed from Dunkirk, for the purpose of attacking Ostend by fea, to which place their troops, in great numbers are endeavouring to prefs forward by land. Sir William Erfkine, who commands the Britifh ar- my in the abfence of the Duke of York, was collecting his whole force on the nthinft. for the purpofe of offering the firft defence for this important place, and a detachment of the Auf- trian army, it was ex petted, would arrive to fupport them. Lord Hood failed from Hieres Bay on the 14th of January, with the remaining part of his fquadron, which had been there fince the evacu- ation of Toulon ; having the fleet of tranfports which had arrived from Ireland under his convoy. He was firft going to Porto Ferajo. The Bedford man of wat has been sent to Gibraltar. Tlie French took possession of the Island of Hieres on Lord Hood's quitting it. Dispatches were likewife yefterday received from the West- Indies. Polverol, one of the French Commissioners at St. Domingo, after having given freedom to the blacks, and armed them, had made them take an oath, that they would never lav down their arms till all Kings were extirpated! It was the Juno frigate, commanded by Capt. Hood, the nephew of the gallant Admiral of that name, which, coming from Gibraltar, en- tered the road of Toulon, not knowing of the re- capture of that place, and anchored off the caserns, when a boat with a French officer came to announce to the Captain, that he was a pri- foner of war. Capt. Hood, with superior pre- sence of mind, requested the Frenchman to take fome refreshment in his cabin, and profited by this interval to cut his cables, after which he bore away under a brisk gale.— The French batteries seeing the Juno flieer off, directed a most violent difcharge upon her, but could not prevent her proceeding on her way. The Juno was a little damaged by the cannonade, and is now with Lord Hood, having on board the French of- ficer, and several other Frenchmen made pri soners of war by this excellent stratagem. We hear that great quantities of pot ash have been lately exported from this kingdom to France in neutral ships; the French having, it is faid, discovered a method of using this salt instead of salt- petre, in the compofition of gun- powder. It is underftood in the political circles, that however the threats of the French may ftill pre- vail, in regard to their intention of invading this country, the enfuing campaign will commence with another attempt upon Dunkirk, and that condufted in fuch a way as to encourage the beft hopes of fuccefs. The Convention has decrecd, " That slavery shall be abolished in all the French islands." This they say will be a death- blow to Pitt. On the 4th inft. the National Convention de- creed, that the colony ot St. Domingo should be represented in the assembly. On that day thres deputies came to take their feats, viz. a negro, a mulatto, and a vvhite. They were greatly ap- plauded, and received the fraternal embrace of Vadier, the prefident. This fcene was accom- panied by the reiterated cries of Vive I'Egalite! the negroes of St. Domingo have sworn to ex- tirpate the English from that island. On the tft of February 62 persons were con- demned to death by the Revolutionary Commis- sion at Lyons. Two days after they were shot in the grand square. The circumstances which at- tended this military execution were fuch as mult ftrike every feeling mind with horror. Women and children employed themselves in stripping the bodies of the fufferers, to divide among them the bloody rags in which they were cloathed. On the 1 ft at St. Maloes, boats full of women, who, from loyal principles, had taken an active part, were sent out to fea to perish, the boats having been scuttled. This horrid piece of bar- barity has been repeatedly practised on many parts of the coast, against priests, and emigrants, and now* against women :— fuch is the gallantry, and generality of the French ! Monday very favourable accounts were received from America, brought to this country by two ships from New- York, with letters as late as the 4th of January, which state, that Congress had received intelligence of the Proclamation of our Privy Council, of the 6th of November lalt, for seizing the American ships under certain circum- ftances, as well as of the capture of several Ameri- can ships in the Weft- Indies. Congress had, however, determined on perfevering in a strict Neutrality with all nations. American stocks have risen in confequence. Colonel Mack arrived fafeat Ostend on Sunday night.— He is appointed Adjutant- General to the Prince of Saxe Cobourg. The chief operations of this campaign will be arranged by him. Yefterday Governor Hunter took leave of the King at the Levee, on going to take his com- mand at Rotany Bay. Inftruftions are preparing to tie fent off from the War office, to the Colonels of the fevetal re- giments of militia throughout the kingdom, con- cerning the difcipline ot their feveral corps, sad orders to prepare for marching or going into camp on the shorteft notice poffible. The name of the unfortunate Gentleman, who was killed by a fire- engine, at the dreadful con- flagration nt Knightsbridge, on Tuefday the 1 ith instant, has b? cn mistaken in the newspapers. His name was Greuber j he had filled a very im- portant office in the east- Indies ; and had re- turned to England with a plentiful fortune, ho- nourably acquired, as Superintendant of the great muslin manufacture at Dacca. He had, that day, been on a visit to his brother, Captain Greuber, of Sloane- street; and on the alarm of the neighbouring accident, the two gentlemen walked to the spot; where- they had no sooner arrived, than an engine, moved along by men, rushed so furiously upon them, on the foot- path, that they had not time to escape. Mr. G. being thrown down, was fo dreadfully trampled on, and crushed, that he expired in about half an hour, most of his ribs being broken, Capt. G.' s life was almolt miraculoufiy preserved by his ac- tivity in springing up the wall of Hyde- Park, where he hung by his hands, clinging to the brick work, for a moment, till the engine had passed. v In consequence of his Majesty's proclamation for a Ge- neeal Fast, the Rev. Dr. Walmsley, Vicar apolistic for the western district, has published the following Charge :— To all the Faithful, Clergy and Laity, in the Western District. " DEAR BRETHREN, " On the general view of the prefent ftate of this and the neighbouring nations, we are ftruck with the fcenes of war and destrutTion that pre- vail. It would feetn, that the clemency and mercy of the Supreme Being, exhaulted as it were by the continual growth of irreligion and immorality, had given place to juftice to pour out his wrath and vengeance upon mankind. Un, der fuch dreadful circumftances, what does our duty prefcribe ? What means can be takeji to appeafe the Divine anger ? We muft humble our- felves, in penitential fupplications to our offended God, in ooing good works, in fading and mor- tification. By thefe means we may hope, to move the Father of Mercies to lay afide the wea- pons of his juftice, and to regain his favour. Convert us, O God our Saviour, and turn away thy anger from us,-~ Shew us, O Lord, thy mercy, and grant us thy salvation. " Let us alfo fend up our humble and eameft petitions to the God of Armies, that he may vouchfafe to give fuccefs to the English arms, to cover this kingdom with his special protection, to grant it prosperity and the abundance of his blessings, and that it's military power united with that of other nations may be effectual to re- ftore peace to the earth. Let us cry to Heaven; and the Lord - will have mercy on us. ( 1 Maccab. iv. 10.) " On these motives and to obtain thefe blessings, we order all Roman Catholics of our distriCt to observe, in concurrence with his Majefty's other subjects, Friday the 28th day of February, as a day of folemn fall, humiliation and prayer, and the prieft of every chapel to offer up the facrifice of the mafs f Missa tempore Belli,) after which to recite the 19th psalm, Exaudiat, with the prayer for our gracious and beneficent Sovereign King George III. his Royal confort the Queen, and all the Royal Family.

HOUSE cf COMMONS, thursday, Feb. 20. sIR F. Basset presented a Bill to regulate the lolls to be paid to millers for grinding orn, which w; vs read a tint, and ordered to be read a fecond time, and alfo to be printed. Mr. Bingham moved, that the St. Alban's Canal Bill be committed. Mr. Earl, Lonl Carysfort, Mr. Serjeant Watson, and Mr. Powys spoke against ir, and Mr. Stanley, Mr. Baker, and Mr. Wyndham in favour of it. Mr. Speaker then put the question, whether this bill be committed, on which the House divided, when there appeared for the commitment Z3, against it 24, fo that the Bill was lolt by a majority of 1. LON'D ON, February 22. By letters from Guernsey, dated the 13th inft. we learn, that a rumour prevailed there, of an at- tack being meditated upon that island and Jersey on the part of the French. It did not meet with very general credit: but still the military were vigilant and aftive in the necessary duties, to pre- vent a surprize. The officer who is to command the Royalists is now at Guernsey-. He is extremely sanguine in his hopes of establishing the Royal standard in Brittany. He looks for Lord Moira's army very soon. Good information has been received at Guern- fey, of a general difcontent prevailing throughout the Republican army; and it is the received opi- nion, that if the Britilh can make good their landing, a body little fnort of, 100,000 men, per- haps a much larger number, would immediately join them, and receive them with open arms. Iu the bill introduced into parliament, for the purpofe of preventing any remittances to France, the following penalties have been adopted in the Committee: Every perfon remitting money to the ruling powers of France, or to any perfon sliding in France, from the lit of January, is to be attainted of high- treafon.— Every perfon fup- rlyirig goods, wares, or merchandize, under the fame cireumtlances, is to fufFer the penalties of a j remunire.— Every perfon palling a bill of ex- change, draft, ike. is to forfeit double the amount, and the claim ( hail retain it's force, notwithftand- ing that the fame bill or draft may have been cancelled. In the Houfe of Commons of Ireland on Wed- nefday lalt the Chancellor of the Exchequer in- troduced the Ways and Means, obferving, that he meant as little as possible to add any preffure 011 the induftrious and indigent part of fociety, whom he would relieve as much as poflible, by taxing the luxuries of life. It was his objeft to reduce the tax on beer, and to increafe it on fpirits, which was a continuation of a meafure that had operated favourably. The objects of taxation were teas, cards, dice, carriages, malt, bills of exchange, receipts, Sec. He propofed for ccnlideration a fnull duty on leather in it's firtt procefs, which would not exceed id. per pair on ( hoes: the tax on tea was equally moderate, but one half- penny under the price of 4s. and one penny above that price. The Chancellor next propofed a bounty on foreign bark ; this meafure fecmed to be calculated to equipoife the duty he had propofed 011 leather, bills of exchange and receipts were propofed as instruments of duty, which he said would bear luit half the proportion with the English taxation. Carriages he propofed to tax one third more, which would equal fix guineas per carriage. Thefe taxes, with gd. per barrel on malt, were nearly the whole propofed by the Right Hon. the Chancellor, by whom fome remarks were thrown out, tending to shew that the Proprietors of Mad- houses eluded the legal tax, and that therefore in that department there was a very great deficiency. The immediate advantage which the East- India Company will derive by the expulsion of the French from the peninsula of Indostan, is thus ftated :— Thu military establislhment in Bengal, and upon the Coromandel and Malabar coasts, is stated by Mr. Dundas at 72,000 men, and the ex- igence eftimated at three millions sterling._ Ifthen 72,000 men were a sufficient force to be maintained when the French had potfeffions in each of the three provinces, and a facility of intercourfe with • the native Princes and States, furely 50,000 will be fufficient to fecure the good behaviour of the' country powers, deprived of all European fup- port. A reduction, therefore, of 22,000 men may be made, which will create a faving to the Company of 8oo, oool. per annum. All the troops ordered to embark for the East- Indies have received counter- orders; and Go vernment have ( topped all the arms the India Company had purchased for their settlements abroad; Lord Cornwallis having given his opi- nion that they are not wanted in that quarter of the globe. Concerning the threatened invasion of England, government have received certain information by feveral of their adventurous cruizers 011 the French coaft, that the preparations making at Havre de- Grace, Cherbourg, and St. Maloes, are by no means in that forwardnefs which we have been called upon to believe they were ;- traniports arc affembled, but not in any great number. It is rather singular, that exactly a century ago, viz. preparations were made for an invasion of this lsland, at Havre- de- Grace, St. Maloes, & c. when the brave Admirals Russel and Benbow no sooner appeared be fore them, but they burnt all the enemy's shipping, and reduced the towns to ashes !- Surely there may be found fome naval commander, at this prefent period, emulous for a public service of similar heroism 1 ' Table of the diftances beliveen fea- ports in France, and f a- ports in Ireland and Great- Britain.— From Brett to Galway 180 leagues; Cork 100; Ply- mouth 60; Torbay 70; Portlmouth 100; Thi Downs 132; Cherbourg to Portsmouth 26.

This morning sailed Rear Admiral Macbride, with the following ( hips un der his command, on a cruize off Cherbourg, & c only one ( Colonel Washington) is in Congress: na not one holds a place, although every office in the Executive Government is at the disposal of the President. The Lawyers employed on the subject of the marriage of his Royal Highness Prince Augustus with Lady A. Murray, have had several meetings; The refult of their deliberations seems favourable to the young couple. Marriages solemnized abroad, are, by various acts of the British Par- liament, recognized in this country; and the aft of Parliament which was passed in the beginning of the prefent reign, prohibiting the marriage of any of the Royal Family without the consent of his Majesty, and on which the prefent application for a divorce is founded, does not extend to mar- riages contracted abroad. • Caution.— A few days ago a hawker and pedler was convicted in the penalty of ten pounds, for offering goods to sale in Leeds on the market day, altho' he produced a licence; and on non- payment was committed to the houfe of correction for three months. A Quaker who was examined before their ho nours the commissioners of excise, touching some certain duties that it was supposed had not been properly paid, was rather more primitive in his language than they liked: and not choosing to ufe any other titles than thee, thou, and friend, one of them with a very stern countenance, asked him, " Pray, Mr. , do you know for what we sit here ?" " Yea, verily," replied Na- than, " I do : some of you for five hundred, others for a thousand, and I have been told, others for two thousand pounds a year." Early on Monday morning the post- boy carry- ing the mail from Chester to Liverpool, was stopped by two men, about a mile beyond Neston, who took the mail from him, and carried it off — The bags have been since found, opened, and the letters taken out and destroyed, about a mile from Neston.— Two men., we are told, have been apprehended at Liverpool, upon suspicion of the above robbery. Elizabeth Emmerson, a young woman of Haut- boys, in the county of Norfolk, aged 26, has been tapped thirteen times for the dropsy since Michaelmas 1793; at which feveral times 594 pints of water have been taken from her, and ( he is now in a ( late to be tapped again, when it is supposed 1 j gallons more will be taken from her. A singular and melancholy instance of fatality.— Last week, in Boughton, near Chester, a fine girl, of five years old, having accidentally broken an earthen mug, her sister, a girl about twelve or thirteen, in the absence of the mother, put the little offender into the cellar, as a punishment, where she imprudently kept her till the mother's return, a few hours after; when, being fearful of communicating the circumstance, she with- held it, till the poor, half- distracted woman had aftually employed the bellman to cry the child in Chefter: pon the fact, however, coming out, the mother flew down stairs, with an eagerness that may be better conceived than described, to embrace the lost object of her heart, when lo! she found it a corpse, having perished in a well in the cellar. " t he following occurrence took place last Fri- day afternoon, in Cow- crofs, near West- Smith- field : a journeyman baker, entertaining a suspi- cion of an improper intercourse between his wife and a journeyman patten- maker in the neigh- bourhood, went home at an unusual hour, and finding the parties in a room together, the latter instantly jumped out of a one pair of stairs win- dow, whereby his skull was fractured, and his thigh broken. He was taken to St. Bartholo- mew's hospital, where he expired in less than two hours after his fall. On Sunday night Iast was found in the delph by the turnpike, near Gainsborough, a child newly born, with a tight string round the neck, and a brick- bat tied to it. The inhuman, unna- tural mother has not yet been discovered. DIED.] On the 13th inft. at his house at Eaft Dereham, in Norfolk, Sir John Fenn, Knt. M A. F. A.

Y yefterday's Flanders mail accounts from Paris were received of the date of the 14th — In the report of- the proceedings of the Con vention of the 12th, the Royalists of La Vendee are again acknowledged to be in great force, and Barrere announcedi that " During the retreat of one of the battalions of La Vendee, the young general Moulin destroyed himfelf, to avoid being taken prisoner by the banditti." From intelli- gence received refpe& in. g the real magnitude of that defeat,— we learn that the Royalist army is 8o, coi? strong, and that in the aftion above- men- tioned, the Republicans left 6000 dead upon the field of battle, when they retreated for protection under the walls of Nantz. Several battalions re- volted, and more than a thousand were made prisoners by the victorious army. Thefe circum- llances are however concealed by Barrere in his report. We have the satisfaction of informing the pub- lic, that official news has been received by one of the foreign ministers from his court, of Perpignan having surrendered to the Spaniards. This con- qneft is of the utmoft importance, and opens the doors to no lefs than four of the Southern pro- vinces of France. The particulars of the capture are not known. Several reports have been in circulation finee the arrival of the laft Flanders mails, of the French having appeared in great force near the lines of the allies, with a determination to attack them. We have made it our business to enquire into the truth of thefe reports ; and *. ve find, that on the 9th and 10th inlt. the French ( hewed a disposition to attack, in confequence of which, We have already mentioned that a subscription was begun by fome ladies at Bath; to purchase shoes for the Militia— we have now the pleasure to announce, that a fubfeription is begun in Man- chefter for the fame purpofe. When we confider the harrassing marches that our countrymen mud: experience from the alarm of an invasion, and that onluchan emergency they mult ( land forward as our fole defenders, this tribute in their favour will be a trifle to the different countries, but a valuable gift to the men. Two horfe- ftealers were apprehended in our fair on Thurfday— They had in their pofl'effion two valuable cart- mares, one of which had been stolen from Quedgley, and the other from Hars- field, in Gloncestershire, on Sunday night laft ; and the owners, who had traced them as far as Stow- on- the- Would, being informed of a fair at this place, luckily arrived here juft as they were offering them for fale. They were immediately taken before Jeremiah Briggs, Esq. our prefent chief magiftrate, who committed them to gaol, in order to take their trials at our ensuing assizes. On Monday fe'nnight, the servant- maid of Mr. Venables, at the Bull inn, in Oxford, was com- mitted to the gaol there, 011 her awn confession, for breading Open the bureau of her master, and dealing from thence upwards of 30l.: in money ; for which offence on the Wednefday preceding, John Hall, a helper in the stables, had been com- mitted upon her evidence.

The French, with a view, probably, of divert- ing fome of our force, have declared thei'r deter- mination to invade our Country, towards the end of this month"; and this boast, connefled with the circumftarice of the ufual orders at this time of the \ ear having been given, for all officers of Militia to join their reapextive Corps seems to have been aufficient to give rife to the report of an invafion having actually taken place. Supposing them, for a moment, to be mad enough to make fuch an attempt, the question is, where they will endeavour to land. The Isle of ' Wight is but 12 hours sail from Cherbourg ; but here our fleet presents itfelf on One fide, with in- accessible rocks round most parts of the ifland ; no tract of country sufficient to subsist an army for any length of time; and che fortifications of Portsmouth between it and the main land, too ftrong to be taken by a coup de main. Should they alio mean to attempt it, there landing here would be further impeded by the forces now under the command of the Earl of' Moira.; and this, per- haps, is a thorough justification of the Minister, frr landing and detaining the Hessian troops in that quarter.— Rut if, as others suppose, their de- iign mould be to land' near Plymouth, or fome- where in the West of England, the distance, Hy giving us'time to prepare, wjjl be of itfelf fuffi- cient to rendei1 the enterprise abortive.— The fame difficulty, would attend their landing at Mil- ford haven, or in any other part of Wale'sto ft v nothing of the ruggedness of roads, a moun- Tainous country, and a hardy race of people, burning with zeal in defence of their Sovereign and the British Constitution. At all events, therefore, - whether. they land or not, nothing is to be feared from an invafion. But it is more probable. they will never attempt it. The threats ot " Barrere, . and > his brethren of the'" Convention, are to be confidered. as a mere brutum Julmen : thrown but/ perhaps, politically enough, to arnufe the deluded French ; and kept up with a view < t inducing us to direct some of our force to oppofe fuch an attempt, if it fhould be made ; but having nothing in them, furely, to fill a Britilh bofom with, fear, or give us the leait apprehenfion pf what they mav really intend to do. When we consider who the Englifh are, ' who the French are, and what are the relative circum- stances of both, we mult contefs we are not able to account for the alarm that was produced on Friday, by the rumou'fs of an invsfion. To" fay nothing oi the difficulties, or rather inipra& icability of tlic inv'afion of mf/ lami by an enemy, with little or no naval force, whilll the iflMiiders ha ve riding at anchor, and ready for fea, a fleet that might well make one half of Europe tremble, we will fuppofe the French actually landed with <; 0,000 men, and a fuitable train of artillery ; v.- e know that in that cafe, a confideT- able lofs might be fuftained through the deilruc- * ionof forage, cattle, or farin- houfes; but, good God, is it poitible, that any man who feels him- felf an Engliflbman, could, even under fuch cir- cuinftanc. es, be ferioufly alarmed, left the cmqtiejl the ijland by the invaders fhould enftie ? It has been pompoufly aflted, whether 26 millions of Frenchmen could be conquered by an. army of 200,000 invaders, or even by ten times that number. And fhall it be foid that twelve millions of Eng lifli, Scotch and Irifhmen, feel alarmed at the klea n( a landing efteited by 50,00^ 0 Frenchmen ? No; forbid it pride, forbid it manhood. The landing of fuch a body could ferve only to fatten our foil; svn invaSon by fuch a force would only transfer from French to Englifh fexrons, the office of bury- ing men, who, though leaving France with the hopes of viilory, would find in England nothing but a grave. \\ hatever may be our divifions in other points, an invading enemy will find, to his cofl, that when our country is attacked, her children will have but one heart and one mind, and that they will rife is one man in her defence. Certain, we believe it is, that there is but one mind upon this fubjedt in this country, and that if the French are mad enough to come, we fhall not be tame enough to futFer any of them to return. We have every reafon to believe that Minifters will not leave any thing undone that . may render the efforts of our enemies to annoy us abfolutely abortive. They have every thing at flaketheir reputation as lta'tefmen, their honour as gentle- men, their fafety as Minifters, their pride and their patriotifm as Britons: let us then give them credit that they will notnegleft their duty, that they will make the belt ufe of the power put into their hands; and let us not be alarmed for the Con- fequences of an invafion, which though it is not to be invited, is not to be dreaded as an irre- trievable evil, A confpiracy has lately been discovered at Warehom in Kent, which certainlv was intended to give the French assistance, when a landing should have been attempted. It appears, that the principal ringleaders in the business are fome disaffected perfons, who have been exceedingly active for fome time past in stirring up a fpirit of rebellion among, the poor labourers in that part of the country; who have been led to suppose, that thev are dreadfully oppressed, in being obliged to work for their living ; and that the only means of bettering their condition would be by uniting together to effect a revolution, and then dividing the property of the country. It is generally fup- po/ cd that fome French Emissaries have likewise been active in fanning this fpirit of revolt. We hear that the combination was brought to light by a fervant of Mr. Kingsnorth's, who had ho- neity enough to withstand the overtures that were made to him to bccome a party in the rafcally undertaking : and by the joint efforts of Mr.. J lodges and Mr. Kingsnorth, the bufinefs was fuon fullv unravelled. There. are three perfons committed, and fome others are now in fearch of.
