' A Letter, of which the following is a copy, was re- ceived on Sunday last, from his Royal Highness the Duke of York, by the Right Hon Henry Dundas, his Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department. Sir, Tournay, June 6 1794. stant, the combined army; under the command of the He- reditary Prince of Orange, attacked the enemy, who was posted at Fontaine l'Eveque, in order to cover a part of their Forces which was besieging Charleroi, and compel- led them to raise the siege, and return across the Sambre, where they now remain. I am, Right Hon Henry Dundas, FREDERICK. ' WHITEHALL, June 10. THE dispatch, of which the following is a copy, was re- ceived on Sunday last from Admiral Lord Hood, by the R. . Hon. Henry Dundas, one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State. SIR, Victory, off Bastia, May 24.1794. I HAve the honour to acquaint you, that the town and citadel of Bastia, with the several posts upon the heights, surrendered to the arms of his Majesty on the 22d, On the 19th I received a message that the garrison was desirous of capitulating upon honourable terms; in consequence of which I sent the inclosed note on shore. This brought on board the Victory three officers, who informed me, that Gentili, the Commandant, would assemble the officers of the several corps; and of the Municipality, if a truce took place, which I agreed to, a little before sun- set. The next day I received a- note from Gentili, which I also in- close, and sent Captain Young on shore on the morning of the 21st, who soon returned to the Victory, with two officers and two, of the Administrative Bodies, which , with Vice- Admiral GoOdall, Captain Young, Captain Inglefield, and my Secretary, Mr M'Arthur, settled the articles of ca- pitulation, which were signed the following morning, when his Majesty's troops took possession of all the posts above the town, the troops in each retiring to the citadel, from whence they marched to the Mole Head, where they grounded their arms, and were embarked. You will re- ceive herewith the articles of capitulation, which I hope his Majesty will approve. I am unable to give due praise to the unremitting zeal, exertion, and judicious conduct of Lieutenant- Colonel Villettes, who had the honour of commanding his Maje- sty's troons : never was either more conspicuous. Major Brereton, and every officer and soldier under the Lieute- nant- Colonel's orders, are justly entitled to my warmest acknowledgments; their persevering ardour and desire to distinguish themselves cannot be too highly spoken of, and which it will be my pride to remember to the latest peri- od of my life. Captain Nelson, of his Majesty's ship Agamemnon,, who had the command and directions of the seamen, in landing the guns, mortars, and stores; and Captain Hunt; who commanded at the batteries, very ably assisted by Captain Buller and Captain Serocold, and the Lieutenants Gore, Hotham, Stiles, Andrews, and Brisbane, have an equal claim to my gratitude, as the feamen under their management worked the- guns with great judgment and alacrity. . Never was an higher spirit, or greater perseve- rance exhibited; and I am happy to say, that no other- contention was at any time known, than who should be most forward and indefatigable for promoting his Majesty's service; far, although the difficulties they had to struggle with were many and various, the perfect harmony and good humour that universally prevailed throughout the siege overcame them all. I cannot but express; in the strongest terms, the meri- torious conduct of Captain Duncan and Lieutenant Alex- ander Duncan, of the royal artillery, and Lieutenant De Butts, of the royal engineers; but my obligation is parti- ' cniarly great to Captain Duncan, as more zeal, ability, and judgment, was never shown by any officer than were displayed by him ; and I take the liberty of mentioning him as an officer highly entitled to his Majesty's notice. I feel myself very much indebted for the vigilance and attention of Captain Wolseley of the Imperieuse, and of Captain Hallowell, who became a volunteer wherever he could be useful, after being superseded in the command of the Courageux by Captain Waldegrave. The former kept a diligent watch upon the island of Capraia, where the enemy have magazines of provisions and stores, and the latter did the same, by guarding the harbour's mouth of Bastia with gun- boats and launches well armed, the whole of every night, whilst the smaller boats were very judiciously placed in the intervals between, and rather without the ships ( which were moored in a Crescent just cut of reach of the enemy's guns,) by Captain Young of the" Fortitude, the center ship, on board of which every boat assembled at sun- set for orders; and the chearful- ness with which the officers and men performed this night- ly duty is very much to be admired, and afforded me the most heartfelt satisfaction and pleasure. The very great and effectual assistance received from Vice Admiral Goodall, Captain Inglefield, and Captain Knight, as well as from every Captain and officer' of his Majesty's ships under my command-, have a just claim to my most particular thanks, not only in carrying into exe- cution my orders afloat, but in attending to and supply- ing the wants of the little army on shore. It is to the very, cordial and decided support alone I had the honour to receive from the whole, that the innumerable diffi cutties we had to contend with were so happily sur- mounted.

It is very much my duty to inform you, that I am ex- tremely obliged to General Petrecono, Mr Frediani, and all the officers of the Corsicans, serving with the army, for their great zeal, ardour, and attention, in forwarding the reduction of Bastia by every means in their power, who were of infinite service by preserving good order in the troops.

ON the 29th of last month, being in latitude 46 deg. 38 min. north, longitude 9 deg. 40 min. west, his Majesty's ship fell in with, and, after an action of an hour and fif- teen minutes, captured a French frigate, ( late his Maje- sty's ship the Castor,) commanded by Mons. L'Huillier, mounting 32 guns, and manned with 200 men. She had parted company from the French squadron an the 24th in chace of a Dutch brig, which she had in tow when we first discovered her, and which, upon oar com- ing up, was enabled to effect her escape. I have the satisfaction of reporting to their Lordships the uniform good conduct of the officers and crew of his Majesty's ship I have the honour to command-; and 1 feel myself indebted to Lieutenants Worsely and Sayer, for the spirited example they set to a new ship's company.

ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, June lo. SIR Roger Curtis, First Captain to the Admiral Earl Howe, arrived this evening, with a dispatch from his Lordship to Mr Stephens, of which the following a a copy : ' Queen Charlotte at Sea, June 2. 1794, Ushant, E. Half N. 140 leagues. SIR, THINKING it may not be necessary to make a mors particular report of my proceedings with the fleet, for the present information of the Lords Commis- sioners of the Admiralty, I confine my communica- tions chiefly in this dispatch, to the occurrences when in presence of the enemy yesterday. Finding, on my return off of Brest, on the 19th past, that the French fleet had, a few days before, put to sea ; and receiving, on the same evening, ad- vices from Rear Admiral Montagu, I deemed it requisite to endeavour to form a junction with the Rear Admiral, as soon as possible,. and proceeded immediately for the station on which he meant to wait for the return of the Venus. But, having gained very credible intelligence, on the 21st of the same month, whereby I had reason to suppose the French fleet was then but a few- leagues farther to the westward, the course before steered was altered accordingly. On the morning of the 28th the enemy, were dis- covered far to windward, and partial actions were engaged with them that evening and the nest day-. The weather gage having been obtained, in the progress of the last mentioned day, and the fleet be- ing in a situation for bringing the enemy to a close action the 1st instant, the ships bore up together for that purpose, between seven and eight o'clock ir, the- morning. The French, their force consisting of twenty- six ships of the line, opposed to his' Mayesty's, fleet of twenty- five, ( the Audacious having parted company with the sternmost ship of the enemy's line, captu- red in the night of the 28th) waited for the action-, and sustained the attack with their customary reso- lution. In less than an hour after the close action com- menced in the centre, the French Admiral, enga- ged by the Queen Charlotte, crowded off, and was followed by moft of the fhips of his van in condition to carry fail after him, leaving with us about ten or twelve of his crippled or totally dismasted ships, ex- clusive of one sunk in the engagement. The Queen Charlotte had then lost her fore topmast, and the main topmast fell over the side very soon after. The greater number of the other ships of the British fleet were, at this time, so much disabled or widely separated, and under such circumstances with respect to those ships of the enemy in a state for action, and with which the firing was still con- tinued, that two or three, even of their dismasted ships, attempting to get away under a spritsail sing- ly, or smaller sail raised on the stump cf the fore- mast, could not be detained. Seven remained in our possesson, one of which, however, sunk before the adequate assistance could be given to her crew ; but many were saved. The Brunswick, having lost her misen mast in the action, and drifted to leeward of the French retreating ships, was obliged to put away large to the northward from them, Not seeing her chased by the enemy, in that predicament, I flatter myself she may arrive in safety at Plymouth. All the o- ther twenty- four ships of his Majesty's fleet re- as- sembled later in the day; and I am preparing to return with them, as soon as the captured fhips of the enemy are secured, for Spithead. The material injury to his Majesty's ships, I un- derstand, is confined principally to their masts and yards, which I conclude will be speedlly replaced. I have not been yet able to collect regular ac- counts of the killed and wounded in the. different ships Cap. Montagu is the only officer of his Majesty's rank who fell in the action. The numbers of both descriptions I hope will prove small, the nature of the service considered ; but I have the concern of being to add, on the same subject, that Admiral Graves has received a wound in the arm, and that Rear Admirals Dowyer and Pasley, and Captain Huty of the Queen, have each had a leg taken off; they are, however, ( I have the satisfaction to hear) in favourable state under those misfortunes. In the captured ships the numbers- of killed and wound- ed appear to be very considerable. Though I shall have, on the subject of these dif- ferent actions with the enemy, distinguithed exam- ple's hereafter to report, I presume the determined bravery of the several ranks of officers and the ships companies employed under my authority, will have been already sufficiently denoted by the effect of their spirited exertions; and, I trust, I shall be eX- cused for postponing the more detailed narrative of the other transactions of the Fleet thereon, for be- ing communicated at a future opportunity ; more especially as my first Captain Sir Roger Curtis, who is charged with this dispatch, will be able to give the farther information the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty may at this time require. It is in- cumbent on me, nevertheless, now to add, that I am greatly indebted to him for his counsels as well as conduct in every branch of my official duties: — And I have similar assistance, in the late occurren- ces, to acknowledge of my second Captain, Sir Andrew Douglas. I am, with great consideration, SIR, Your most obedient Servant, HOWE. P. S. The names and force of the captured French ships with the Fleet is transmitted herewith.

THE Enterprize, of London, is taken by a French brig of 14 guns, near the Island of Sardania. The Vigilante, Mayer, from Bremen to Bilboa, is taken and carried into Rochfort. . , The Walter, Harris, from Cork to St Sebastian's, is taken, by a French frigate, and carried into Rochelle. The Britannia, Feetam, from Hull to Oporto, taken by the French, is retaken by the Vulture privateer of Jersey, and sent to Spain. The Carysfort frigate is arrived at Plymouth from Spain, with fhe Caftor frigate, which flic retook on the 29th ult.— The Carysfort also retook a brig from Amsterdam to Bata- via, which has proceeded on her voyage. The Mary, Taylor, from Liverpool to Africa, taken by a French sloop of war, on the 19th ult. is retaken by the Sarah, M'Ghie, and arrived at Liverpool. The Elisabeth, Grieve, from Dantzic to Rotterdam, is sunk near the Rosehead— crew saved. The Princess Mary, Bourdett, from Quebec to Cadiz, was lost on Cape Ray on the 10th of November last— crew - The Herstelder, Hauser, from Surinam, put back to Cu- racao on the 13th of March, leaky, and is. there condemned ; part of the cargo damaged, the remainder is on board the Cornelis Gabriels, and the Philadelphia, Paulus Kelder, which ships, with twenty others, were to go to Ja- maica for convoy to Europe. Captain Thompson, of the British Queen, arrived at Fal- mouth from Leghorn ; on the 24th, of May spoke a Dutch galliot, which had been captured by the French and given up, 011 board of which were the crews of the following ves- sels, viz.— The Brothers, Prior, from London to Barbadoes — the Guildford, Read, of Hull, for Lisbon—- and the brig Douro, Sharp, of Hull, for ditto, the two latter with wheat, all of whom were taken on the 22d ult. by the Surprize and Courier cutters, who had taken seventeen sail of vessels during their cruize. . Captain Thompson saw the galliot again in soundings, steering for the Channel. PLYMOUTH, June 9. . Last night, about nine o'clock, the Valiant lugger of 12 guns, Lieutenant Parker, arrived express to Rear- Admiral Macbride. This vessel, which sailed a few days ago with the Crescent, of 36 guns, the Druid, of 32, the Euridice, of 24, and the Charlotte, of 10 guns, with a final 1 lugger, anil two other cutters, to cruize near Guernsey, where some ships of the enemy had been seen, brings intelligence that, having shaped their course for the islands, at day- break next morning, they were within se- ven leagues of Guernsey, when they discovered five large frigates, and two corvettes, at a small. distance. The Valiant was ordered to go near them, for the purpose of discovering of what nation they were. When within gun shot, they hoistcd French colours, and commcnced a heavy, but ill directed fire; but as their chief aim seem- ed to be to come to action with our frigates, tiie Valiant made her escape. Another cutter arrived this morning, and brings intelli- gence that, at seven o'clock yesterday morning, when she left them, the frigates were engaging. " This moment an express is arrived to Admiral Macbride, said to be brought by the Dolphin lugger from Guernsey, with the important information of the safe arrival of the Crescent, Druid, and Eurydice at Guernsey, after having had a most desperate action with five French frigates, which was brought on to savc the Eurydice from falling into their hands, , by which the French have been most handsomely trimmed. The Trusty man of war, and Pearl frigate, who passed this port last evening with a convoy from Ireland, bound to the Eastward, received intelligence by one of Rear Ad' miral Macbride's cruizcrs, of the hazardous state of the a- bove three frigates; on which they immediately crowded sail for that place, and it is hoped arrived time enough to fall in with the Carmagnols. JERSEY— June 4, Yesterday arrived at St Helier, a vessel from France, having on board a great number of women who escapcd from the guillotine. The same vessel brought back the person whom Government sends regularly to France to learn what happens there. We received information by her, that three armies of Royalists were now on foot, the smallest of which amounted to 40,000 men. Thefe armies gained several considerable advantages over the Sans- Cu- lottes. ' The peasants of the environs of St Maloes leave all the coast, to go to join the Royalists: others are forccd to follow ihe Patriots. In other respects there is not a single Sans- Culotte left on this coast, but they are all, with the army. London, June 11. In addition to the joyful intelligence from Lord, Howe, so congenial to the wishes of every - Briton! who glories in the triumphal reign of victory in the British fleet, we are happy to learn that Govern- ment have had, by other channels, some account of the disabled flate of the French fleet after the ac- tion. The Lieutenant of the Andromache gave a distinct relation yesterday to the Lords of the Ad- miralty of their having seen, on the 1st inst. a 74 gun ship dismasted and. extremely disabled, towed by a French frigate— one ship sinking and two on fire; but the Andromache was prevented from watching their motions, as five more Frcnch ships hove in sight, but all of them shattered; and for several leagues the sea bore the marks of a recent engagement, by timber, masts, rigging, and other articles swimming on the surface. From this ac- count it seems highly probable, that not only in ad- dition to the seven captured ships, other ships of the enemy have been burnt or sunk, but that they are generally so disabled as to be hardly capable of e- scape. The Andromache was conveying the Newfound- land trade ; but upon being chased by the French ships, made the signal for the convoy to disperse It is probable, more may fall into our hands, as Admiral Montague, who sailed from Plymouth on the 4th, had not joined the- grand fleet; and his squadron consists of eight " 74 gun ships, befides fri- gates. Should he therefore fall in with the French who are so disabled, it is probable he may capture great part of the remainder. The grand fleet re- turns to port to refit. We must add, that every prospect is afforded that this intelligence will be followed by an account of the capture of the French convoy from the coail of America, as the Andromache brings advice that they were steering for the Bay of Biscay on the 3d of this month. Never was victory more complete nor more glo- rious! for, unlike their former practice, the ene- my fought with great gallantry; and thus in a fair and nearly equal battle, ( six ships of their original force having separated from them on the 28th of May, the day on which they were first seen by Earl Howe, and at which time their force consisted of 32 sail of the line) the superiority of the English navy was made manifest to all the world; and such a blow is given to the marine of the new Republic, that they will not again venture to meet us at sea. Lord Chatham brought the account of this great naval victory to the Opera last night, and just after the beginning of the second act, it was made known to the house. A burst of transport interrupted the Opera, and we never witnessed any scene of emo- tion so rapturous as the audience exhibited, when the band struck up the national song of " Rule Bri- tannia." The joy was too excessive to subside in a moment.— It continued for the whole night, and at intervals the acclamations of triumph drowned the performance— Morichelli joined in the general joy, and " God save the King" was sung by her, and Morelli and Rovedino. Not content with this, the spectators seeing Banti in a box, she was called on by every voice to sing " God save the King.' She cheerfully obeyed the summons, came on the stage, and the transport of the night was crowned by her singing the song His Royal Highness the Duke of Clarence, in the ardour of his joy, went to Covent Garden thea- tre, where he communicated this joyful intelligence to the manager, who ordered it to be announced to the house, which was accordingly done by Mr Incledon. The music played " God save the King;" and " Rule Britannia!" which were loudly applauded encore and encore. Lord Mulgrave and Colonel Phips, in the mean time went to Drury- lane house, and informed the Manager of the glorious achievements of the Bri- tish navy, which he ordered to be announced to the audience by Mr Suet. The music and performers joined in the loyal sounds of " God save the King" and" Rule Britannia !" which were loudly ap- plauded by the whole house. The event was celebrated throughout the night by ringing of bells, firing of cannon, & c. and this day at noon the Park and Tower guns were fired as testimonials of sincere joy. Such was the expedition used by Sir Roger Cur- tis in his journey to town with the good news, that he was twice overturned in a post- chaise, and he arrived with both his arms in slings. The captured ships of the enemy, with the Bri- tish fleet, were left by him beating np Channel, on their way for Plymouth and Portsmouth. Captain James Montague, of the Montague, who fell in this memorable engagement, was brother to Rear- Admiral Montague, who commands the se- parated division of Earl Howe's fleet. At one time the enemy had thirteen ships nearly dismasted ; and on the part of the British, at the same moment, the Marlborough and Defence were in a like crippled state. The French Admiral preserved from the first his line very close, and seemed to avoid, as much as possible, venturing at a near, action. This conduct being observed by Earl Howe, his Lordship, as the only means of effecting the best advantage over the enemy, disregarded the order of his own line, and thus was enabled twice to break that of the enemy . The consequence of such a victory to this coun- try, at the present time, mull be beyond calculation, while it re- asserts the old and established claim of Britain to the empire of the sea. It is surely worthy of remark at this period that this is the first signal victory which has been gain- ed by the channel fleet since the year 1759, and it has been gained under circumstances, which com- pared With those of former periods, make the pre- sent to reflect the most brilliant lustre on the Bri- tish arms. Admiral. When we consider the comparatively small force that he could spare from his ships; for the purpose of Carrying on a long and difficult siege, much praise is certainly due to the skill, spirit arid perse- verance of both officers and men. Calvi is by no means so strong a place as Bastia, It is probable it will not hold out long. Advices from Florence state, that Lord Hood has published a proclamation, inviting the Corsi- cans to form an Independent Republic, under the protection of Great Britain 5 and has also invited General Paoli to convene the states, without any delay, at Corte; declaring at the same time, that he has received full powers from his Court to ne- gotiate with the new Republic. There are accounts in town from the army in Flanders, but we hear of no action. It is said to be reported at Tournay, that the whole French ar- my on receiving the decree of the Convention of the 26th ult. which orders no quarter to be given to British and Hanoverian prisoners, unanimously de- clared to their officers their resolution not to act till it was repealed A very important victory has doubtless been gain- ed on the side of Charleroi, by the Austrians, headed by the Emperor in person. A general account has reached this country; but an official detail of the particulars remain yet to be received. We have reason to conclude, however, that the enemy lost altogether near 4000 men, and 33 pieces of cannon. Mr Jay, a member of congress, who is deputed to settle all existing difference's between this coun- try and America, has arrived at Falmouth. The government of America is. extremely averse to a war with Great Britain, while the people, on the other hand, are Jacobinical in the extreme. Per- haps nothing will tend so much to bring the Ame- ricans to their senses, as to hear that the French fleet is completely defeated, upon the superiority of which they probably built very flattering hopes. The Empress of Russia, we learn by letters re- ceived yesterday by the Dutch mail, means formally to declare war against the Poles. By letters from Quebec, dated March 1. we learn, that the Indians had fallen upon the American army, and slaughtered three or four hundred men. We are happy to find that there is a probability of many of the Lisbon convoy having escaped be- ing taken by the French fleet; another of them arrived at Bristol on Friday last. Au application is faid to have been made to Go- vernment by the West India Planters, to have the sugar of the conquered Islands in the West Indies, for this year, considered as prize sugar, and not to be suffered to be sold in Britain. The Directors of the East India Company have taken up the eight following ships, to be sent to Bengal, for the purpose of bringing home sugar, viz. tons. tons, Orpheus, 381 Comet, 300 Holderness, 361 Echo, 397 Indian Trader, 34 « Latona, 29J Lady Shore, Mercury, 202 By the last accounts received from Greenland, we are informed of the safe arrival of almost all the constant trading ships; that they had begun wha- ling, and, to all appearance, the ships in general would successful. Monday, at noon, a Privy Council was held at the Council Chamber, Whitehall, when Messrs. Saint, Sharpe, and Williams, were re- exammcd. Williams was liberated, and Saint and Sharp were remanded for re- examination. Though Robespierre and his sanguinary associate have so long escaped the vengeance of the people whom they oppress, yet the late attempt shews that the usurpers do not possess such an influence over the public in general as they pretend- It is hardly probable, that the man and woman who attempted to kill those miscreants, acted only from their own feelings, but that they were instigated by a party who may take more effectual measures hereafter. Mr Hailes, the. British Minister at Copenhagen, has delivered a note to Count Bernstorff, requesting him to accelerate the trial of Professor Rahbeck, who published a libel against his Excellency. This morning, about two o'clock, a fire broke out in a warehouse near the King's Mills, Rother- hithe, which in a short time consumed upwards of thirty houses; we have not heard as yet of any lives being lost. The Park and Tower guns were fired, in conse- quence of the- agreeable intelligence of the capture of Bastia. • Lord Hood had no military assistance in the re- duction of Bastia but the marines of his squadron, among whom were two regiments of infantry.

An illumination is to take place at nine o'clock, in consequence of the following proclamation from th « Magistrates.

It is expected that the Loyal Inhabitants of this An- tient Metropolis will testify their general joy on this happy occasion, by ILLUMINATING THEIR WINDOWS, at NINE o'Clock this Evening, and continue till ELEVEN. The Magistrates, at the same time, strictly Prohibit and Discharge the Breaking of.

In addition to the very important intelligence contained in the London Gazette Extraordinary, we have received advice, that Admiral Montague had fallen in with the American convoy homeward- bound to France ; that he captured three fhips of the line, and one hundred merchantmen, loaded with grain. Several letters have been received in town by most respectable Gentlemen, which, go to confirm the above accounts. The important victory which has been announ- ced to- day has filled the heart of every true Briton with the most lively joy— upon no occasion in the history of this country, has a victory of equal mag- nitude been Acquired, and its consequences must be of high importance to Great Britain ; for not only does it demonstrate, that Britain still remains sove- reign of the seas, but it has reduced the navy of France in a great degree— besides there is great proba- bility, that when the intelligence arrive in Paris, Roberspierre and his party will not be able to stand against the outcry of the people, and the numerous parties, who only wait a favourable opportunity to rid the world of such monsters, and free their country fr. om the anarchy and oppression under which she has long groaned, LONDON, June 12 Our intelligence from America is far from plea- sant. The Lower Assembly had pafled a resolution for stopping all commercial intercourse with this country until compensation is made for the injury done their trade by stopping their vessels, payment made for the negroes taken off last war, and the forts in the back fettlements given up 5 but by a letter to Messrs Strachan and Company, I am glad to find, that the packet from this country, carrying over the order of Council, revoking their former one for seizing American vessels, had arrived at a very good time ; for the letter says that in con- sequence of it, the Upper Assembly had rejected the resolution passed in the Lower Assembly and that Mr Jay was immediately coming to this coun- try, when they hoped every thing would be amica- bly settled.

The Stage has within these few days, received ail acquisition of no small importance. A young gentleman of this city, not twenty years of age, made his appearance at the Theatre Royal on. Monday evening, and delivered the Ode to the Pas- sions in so correct and masterly a manner as to call forth the most unbounded applause of a very nu- merous and genteel audience.
