A new Preparation for RHEUMATISMS and the LUMBAGO J ONES's RHEUMATIC TINCTURE.— Vainable Dilcoveries are commonly the effeft of accident. The Inventor of this Medicine is a Clergyman of the Church of England, who, dun g a Ions feries ol experiments in Pharmaceutic Chemiftry, undertaken partly for his amufetnent, I ut p ncipally with a view of affifting the poor in his neighbourhood, had the good fortune rp difcover a Combination, which he had reafon to fuppol'e would piove a powerful Remedy in all Rheu » matic Cales The refult has more tlvan anfwered his expeftations; ar. c!, from its peculiar ctl . cacy n nuir. liCrlels infances, he has no htfitation in pronouncing this Medicine to I e fuperior to any hitherto ufed in this excruciating malady. Of the truth of this lie can produce the moil ufiqueftionable Proofs, not only Jrom men of veracity, who have experienced its wondo-. ul e f f e f l s , but from ( bnr of the moft relpeOable Gentlemen obthe Faculty, under wliofe dircftior. s It has been aclimniftered, and by whom he has been repeatedly urged 10 extend its falinary influence beyond tli. Ti. nits ofhis own neighbourhood. This he has at length contented to, from a fullconvidhon, that his Rheumatic T i n Sure will prove a valuable acquitition tA Medicine, ard a benefit to mankind. This T i n , f i n e may be miflaktn, perhaps, for a variety or' the ' l'inftureof Guaiacum ; but though Cuni cum enters into the compofition, the Inventor foiemftly allures the Public, that tbe ingredient, ( a vegetable proc'uftien) on which its great Efficacy depends, is an Ait- cle unknown in the Materia Mrctica, and that this Medicine has often effefled a Cure, vhen all the preparations 0' Guaiacum has bee^ i given in vain. It is equally as f rviceable in Chronic, as in acut. Rheumatifrls, and will be found an admirable Remedy for that deep- feate'd and obftinatc Complair. fthe Lumbago.

This Gentleman, who died on Tuefday laft, has made l'uch a diftinguifhed figure in the Literary World, that he fhould not be fuffered to drop into the grave without notice. His original powers of mind were not of the higher kind, but they were greater than has generally been filppofed. He poffeffed humour, and was not without learning. . If lie had cultivated his poetical talents, he would moft probably have acquired 110 in- Confiderable repute in the fportive province. His darling propenfity was an avarice ot Fame ; and this propenlity he indulged rather by courting the acquaintance of celebrated chafafters, than by drawing from the - refeurces o f h i s own mind. He made his entrance into public life by an acc o u n t o f t h e f a m o u s PASCAL PAOLI"; aud b v t he extravagant ze : 1 which marked his reprefentation of the Corfican hero, Mr. BOSWELL contrived to elevate himfelf. When he had fufficiently exalted the ch-'. ra& er of PAOLI, for the purpofes of deriving a refledted fame himfelf, he found means to get into particular intimacy with Dr. JOHNSON, and of courfe became known to all the literary connexions of the great Britifh Moralift. By his interceffion, JOHNSON was induced to gratify an early defire of vifiting the Weftern Iflands of Scotland, and Mr. BOSWELL had the pleafure of being the Cicerone to the Literary Leviathan, and of fhe- xving him about to all curious people in the North. . Of ( his expedition BOSWELL wrote* an account, and in his - Hiftory of SAM. JOHNSON'S Rambles, he did not forget to take due notice of himfelf. Mr. BURKE was the next diftinguiihed charafter with who'v. Bos WELL co: ne£ led himfelf; but as Mr. BURKE fhone with too great a radiance in converfatioji for BOS- WELL to dlfplay his tranfient gleams, he withdrew to the milder influence of Sir | OSHUA REYNOLDS, and continued intimate with the latter till hH'death fpread a cloud oyer the World of Art. BOSW'ELL'S Life of'Dr. JOHNSON is his p incipal Work, and a ^ erv anrttlliiig one it is, for in a very whimfica! manner he def lis the charafter and man ners of one of Hie b.- ft 11 i.; cs, anil one of the foundeft moralifts that this country ever knew. It wa BOSWELL'S intention to give a biograpni- i c a l a c c o u n t of Sir J O S H U A R E Y N O L D S ' ; but as i the dome,' tic particulars of that gieat artift were but few, and as BOSWELL did not profefs to know . much of painting, he relinquiflied the idea ; very properly conceiving, that it was the province of a Painter to raife a pi'ofeilional monument to the Bri- | tifli Apel'es, 1 HAMBURGH, MAY 11.

HAGUE, MAY 10. The day before yefterday Count de BEN- TINCK, and the late Penfioijer V A N SP I E G E L , were conveyed to the Houfe in the Wood ; the former in a hired chariot, attended by two Meflengers; the latter in a fimiiar vehicle, attended by ENTE, Chamber Keeper to the Committee of Public Welfare, efcorted by a fmall number of the military. It is believed the reafo- n of their being lent to the Houfe in the Wood, in preference to the Caftle of Muden, is, that it is very eafy to efcape from thence by means of a fmall boat in the Zuyderzee. l( S B O U L Q G N E - S U R - M E R , M A Y 14.

On the queftion of commitirtent of this bill, Eail Radnor oppofed it, on the principle* of its tendency to weaken the force, and relax the ne'eefl'ary fubordination of the Militia, by giving the power to the men, on every occafion of difcipline, of callinr; for their difcharge fiom their officers, and enrolling themfelves in the Artillery, Corps. The Mai* quisoJ| Bbckinfmim coincided in opinion with Earl Radnor; and reprobated both the principle and pfovifion orfne bill, as having adireft i nd immediate tendency to fuBvert the whole Intern of, Militia.

He j was convivial without being focial, for though he i could partake of the laugh of the table with great j glee, he never feemed to have any attachment to his moft intimate companions, unlefs they could in fome meafure contribute to the exteniion of his ! fame. If, however, he was not very fufceptible of j friendfhip, or Zealous in maintaining his connections, I he was not malevolent, and never indulged himfelf ; in detraction.' Give him but fame himfelf, and he did not niiiid how many partners he had to lhare it ! with him, . | As a father, he was as affe& ionate as, his love of fociety. and diitindtion would permit him to be, and in the proper duties of lite, we have no reafon to doubt that he was an honeft man.

On Wedntfday evening a melancholy accident happened at a baker's iliop, in Lothbury, adjoining th: buildings pulling down by the Bank.

Some pieces of the battered money were fhewn, and feveral of the crew, it appeared, had been wounded by them, belides others were found in the enemy's hull and mafts. The Frenchmen had even concluded that the Leviathan's lliot was expended, and that - they were obliged to fight with money. On investigation it turned out, that the cannifters of the caronades, inftead of being filled with fmall fhot, were filled with the money of fome unfortunate Republican in the Ordnance Department at Toulon, who had taken that method of feeuring his riches. , Building, notwithstanding the reftriftion- lately laid upon it, and what has hitherto been ahinftiperable obftacle— Warfare— continues with unabated furor-, about Somers'- lown, Camden- toWri, in the neighbourhood of the Small- pox, Hofpital, & c. whole rtreets have been erefted with great fpirit, an indubitable proof of the wealth, and enfireaiing population, of this country.

' s c s a s e s make it neceliary to offer any iricreafe; and there were very few who went into the army without fome private fortune in addition to their pay. General Tarhton faid, that as additional allowances had been granted to Subalterns of the Militia, that Houfe was in a particular manner called upon to confider thofe of the line ; the latter, engaged in war and danger, fubjeft to all the viciffitudeSof heat and cold, in all theclimates of the world, would receive no increafe ; whilft the former met afliftance and compaffion for finking, poffibly, under the fatigues of a country dance, or fainting with heat under the rigours of a furnmer campaign at fome watering- place. Mr. Pitt bagged to remind tbe Houfe, that no additional pay had been granted to Subalterns of Militia; an allowance had indeed been granted in peace, inferior to that of half- pay to the Regulars, which thofe only Ihould be entitled to who had j ferved a certain time in war, and for which at their monthly meetings they were to do actual fcrvice; and this was done merely becaufe it was neceiiary to hold out fome encouragement to fupply an exifting deficiency. No argument could be drawn from thence in favour o f t h e prefent motion. Mr. M. Robinfon faid a few words. Mr. Porter faid, the advanced price of every thing had been confidered a good reafon for increafing the Eftablifhment of a Prince of the Blood, and fhould ha% e the fame weight in favour of a poor Subaltern in the Army. Sir William Puliensy thought there was no ftmilitude' between the fituation of a Subaltern in the Arffly and in the Militia. Gentlemen went into the Army with an eye- to promotion, but a Militia Subaltern could not rife to be a Captain. He oppofed the expending fo much public money, when it was by 110 means neceiiary. .

The ambiguous and fluctuating conduft of the King of P R U S S I A , during the whole courfe of the . prefent war, has caft an odium on whatever wears the Pruffian name over every part of Europe. Inftead of oppofing in an open and manly manner a focial re- volution, which threatens deftnlftiori to all regular governments, and of fulfilling the folemn engagements he had contrafted by receiving from this country conliderable fobfidics for a' Vigorous profecution of the war, his generals made it their ' bufinefs to paralize all its moft effential operations on the Continent. We are, therefore, not to wonder at his Miiwfcers in foreign countries receiving marks of that general Indignation, excited by the conduit of their rnafter; nor ought we to find it ftrange, that the. Marquis L U C H E S I N I fhould of late have been treated with lo much difdain at Vienna, as this intriguing Italian is well known to direft the wires, which move the Machiavelian Cabinet of Berlin.

We take the earlieft opportunity of corrcfting a paragraph in our paper of Friday, concerning the elopement of a very pretty Countefs. The Lady went privately from her hulband's houfe, and immediately drove down to her mother's feat in the country, with whom ( lie has remained ever fince. The Lady's moral charachr is unimpeached. Yefterday a Baker was convicted before the L O R D M A Y O R, at the Manfion Houfe, for felling to a poor woman a quarten loaf, four ounces deficient in weight, and was fined five ( hillings each ounce. The fame baker was alfo convi& ed in the penalty of twenty ( hillings for omitting to imprint upon the IoaVes fold by him, the mark diftinguifhing the quality of the bread, and which for wheaten bread fhould be a large Roman W, and for houfehold bread, a large Roman H. The fame day an infoimation was taken by the Lord Mayor againft a Regrater in Smithfield Market, and his Lordfhip direfted the City Solicitor to profecute the offender agreeable to a reiolution of the Court of Aldermen on Tuefday laft.

We now refume it at a greater length. " After having announced the coriclufion of the Treaty of Peace of the 5 th of laft month, between P R U S S I A and F R A N C E , hisMajefty proceeds to ftate his fentiments and wifhes, concerning this Treaty, and the motives which have led him to its conclufion. " He obferves, that as he had entered into the war from a pure zeal for the public weal, and froth refined patriotifm, his fentiments had remained in tbe fame ftate of purity during the whole courfe of i t ; without any felfilh view, ( he fays), he has made - the utmoft exertions, which the refotirces of Pruffia admit, to refcue Germany from the dangers of utter i ruin, with which it was threatened by a powerful and enterprizing enemy, to check the viftorious progrefs ofCusTiNE, to recapture Mentz vm& Franckfort, to cover the greateft part of the Rhine during three bloody campaigns; and laftly, when, after a long uninterrupted feries of difaftrous events, not only the Auftrian Low Countries, but alfo the United Netherlands were loft, to fave and proteft, befides his own Weftphalian dominions," the whole circle of Weftphalia, and the North of Germany. " T h e f e exertions, however;, could the lefs be continued with the fole forces of Pruflia, as the Revolution of Poland obliged his Majefty to carry on another expenfive war in that quarter, and he ( hould therefore have been obliged to withdraw from the Rhine the greateft part of his army in the beginning of laft year, had not at that time, ( when the Members o f t h e Germanic Body, with marks of indifference and difapprobation, received his application for afliftance,) Great Britain made offers of ftibfidies, which he accepted, and continued to fight the battles of Germany. Yet thefe fubfidies, which could not be confidered but as a very inconftderable fupport, had fcarce begun to be paid, when they ccafed altogether, and the whole burthen of the war fell again 011 his Majefty's lhoulders. " At that period, no doubt, the whole pofture of affairs invited his Majefty to pacificatory mealures, and yet he remained, at his fole expence, the defender of the G erman Empire. But thefe immenle facrifices having at laft entirely exhaujied the refources of the Prulfiah dominions, the extraordinary e,<- pences of the recapture of Mentz, * not being refunded by the other German States; thedefeftion of Holland having confiderably leffened the means " of defeating the enemy, and opened the moft defencelefs jiart of the German Empire, whofe military conftitutiort, on account o f t h e great variety of its component parts, notwitbftanding its armament had been rai fed to quintuple contingents, could afford but ver the la; ry llender means of defence; and the end of ft campaign having been unfortunate in the extreme, whilft at the fame time from the ruins of the moft horrid defporifm and' anarchy arofe in France, a more folid Government of Moderation, difpofed'Toy Peace, every motive of humanity, policy, and'felf- prefervation muft, of neceifity, open his Majefty's heart to the earned: deftre of reftoring peace, and tranquillity to his own dominions, as well as to the whole German Empire ; feveral Members and whole circles of which, had requefted hisMajefty, in concert with his Imperial Majefty, to procure to the Empire a truce, leading ultimately to a Treaty of Peace. Although this requeft had been fanftioned by the well- known cmlufum of the Empire, yet it, had produced neither the neceffa.- y in-. trodu& iori'of the Supreme Chief of the E-. npire, nor a proper concert with his Pi ofuan Majelty, but on the contrary, the Srates bad been ca'lec upon to furnifh their contingents of troops for a nher year, and they were, of courfe, to remain ir olved in all the difficulties of this deftruftive war. " Under thefe circumftances, bound in duty not to cxpofe any longer his own dominions to utter ruin by continuing a war,' the moil favourable iffue of which could not equal tbe advantages* arifing from an immediate peace, h e had opened pacificatory negociitionsat Bade, which bad terminated in the conclufvon of rhe Treaty of the 5 th of laft month; wherein, confulting not his own intereff alone, but alfo that of Hie whole German Empire, he had taken care to pave the way to Peace for all its Members, who Ihould within the next three months avail themfelves of the favourable ftipulation, which on their account had been inferted in that Treaty. Not fatisfied with this meafure, hisMajefty had alfo caufed by a feparatc agreement a line of neutrality to be drawn for all Northern Germany, calculated to put a period to all military operations in that quarter, and to enfure the fafety and tranquillity of all countries, fituated beyond that line, on condition of their refraining from all a£ ts of hoftility 011 their part, and was ready to fupport in the moft effeftive manner the wifh of al! thofe Members of the Germanic Body, who Ihould defire the return of Peace, and for this purpol'e addrefs themfelves to the Naj tional Convention of Franc-;. But, as his Majefty muft leave this to the eonfideration of his co- ftates, he for his own part found himfelf obliged to declare, that, in cafe the war Ihould be continued by the German Empire, he was bound b\ his Treaty to abftain from all participation in it by furnifhing either contingents of troops, or fupplies in money, and to keep up the ttrifteft and moft punftual neutrality." » About £ . 3 4 8 , 0 0 0 fterling.

FRANCE. NATIONAL CONVENTION. S I T T I N G OF MAY 12. . Ruelle entered into a very detailed account of the Peace with theChouans. He imputed the triumph whicn the Republic had gained iti thofe diftrifts to tbe principles of juftice and humanity profetfed by the National Convention. It was, he faid, 011 the 13th Floreal, ( May z) that the junftion Was effefted with Stofflet and his troops, Under the walls of Mo- j niglonne, formerly St. Flofend, 011 the left bank of ; the Loire. Stofftet was furrounded by the remainder ' of his troops, fome on horfefeack, others on foot;. feveral thoufands of inhabitants, affembled for the j purpofe of being witneffes of the termination of hof- : tilities, kept at the diftance of half a league, and 1 waited with anxiety and iiiipatience for the moment j in which the Treaty fhould be figued. Ruelle faid, | that he had conceived prejudices againft Staff let which \ had been diffipated by his conduit ; far from finding j any hoftile difpofitions in him, the Republicans were fatisfied that his wifhes were all pacific. Stofflet had \ collected all the inhabitants of La Vendee for the : purpofe of communicating to them the offers of j peace. They expteffed the utmoft joy ; and tlie National Deputies, accompanied by Stojjlet and all I his Chiefs, decorated with feathers and tri colour cock- ! ades, paffed the Loire. The Peace was announced | by the difebarge of cannon ; and the Chouans and the Republicans entered Varades in triumph, in the midft of an immenfe concourfe of people. A fraternal repaft terminated the happy day. Ruclle now entered into fome explanations neceffary to diliipate the uneafmefs of the Public with refpedt to fomehoftilities and aflaflinations that had occurred fince the peace. When peace was figned on the 29th Ventofe, with Charette, Sapenaud, and the Chiefs of their party, Caumartin, one of the Chiefs of the army o f t h e Chouans, called the army of Britanny, which occupied the departments of Finifterre, Cotes duNord, and part of the departments of la Manche, Ille and Vilaine, and the Lower Loire, ( igned the Peace, refervingtotheColtncil of that army the power of approving it. There was another party of Chouans, which occupied the departments of Orme, la Sarthc, Mayenne, Mayenne and Loire, and the Lower Loire. Thefe two parties Were very diftinft; each had their Chiefs, their Adininiftration, and their Council. Caumartin, therefore, figned for his party, and what he did was wholly unknown to the other party. Defepeaux, Dreazy, 3 cToine other Chiefs, who commanded in the departments of Mayenne, Loire, and la Sacthe, informed of the Peace, came to Nantes and figned it. Stofflet profited of their abfence to fend a great many emiffaries to the right bank of the river, in order to excite commotions ; to prevent the inhabitants from making Peace, and to deprive the Chiefs who bad figned the Treaty of the confidence whicn they bad hitherto enjoyed. This meafurc was attended with the defired effeft. Defepeaux and the other Chiefs who returned to the cantons, efcaped deatli only by refuming their commands. On this account their party remained devoU'd to Stofflet, and hoftilities were continued. The Peace of Rennes, 011 the ift Floreal, confirmed w hat Can- martin had done in the name o f t h e army of Britanny, but did not comprehend the other departments. It was a notorious fadt, that they were not to lay down their arms until Stofflet had made peace. With regard to tbe Chouans of Britanny, it muft be faid, that the great roads are entirely free; that provifions are carried from place to place with great facility, and that there have been 110 affaffinations. It ( hould alfo, exclaimed Ruelle, be told, that the Chief of the Chouans have, fince the peace, given up to us near a million of forged affignats; that at the end of laft month, when an Engliih fquadron, whofe objedt was to land emigrants, appeared in the harbour of Port Brieux, the inhabitants o f t h e Departments of the Cotes thi Nord, affembled without diftinCtion of party, and, arming themfelves with guns, pikes, hatchets, forks, See. prevented the traitors from being landed, I muft likewife inform you, that the Chiefs o f t h e Chouans have taken up fuch perfons as have committed robberies and murders in the great roads. We have every reafon to believe, that the peace with Stofflet will produce the fome effeits, and that a permanent prosperity will fucceed the horrors of civil war. Yet it muft not be difguifed that, however durable the peace may be, it will be impofftble, for a time, to prevent thofe difcords, jealoulies, and prejudices, whicli are ever tbe confequences of civil war. Ruelle concluded by pronouncing a warm eulogium on tbe conduft of Generals Canelavx and Hoche, and on the difcipline of the Armies of the Weft, and of the Coafts ofBreft and Cherbourg.—( Applaufe.) The difcuffion of Johannot's report of the ftate of the Finances, was refnmed. Bourdon, del'Oife, declared, that the Committee of Finance, to which his plan had been referred, had adopted the bafis of it, and meant to make a report upon it iu a few days. Fermont, in the name of the Committee of Public Welfare, announced, that provifions would arrive in future more rapidly, that there was a large quantity of corn in the environs of Paris, and that the diftribution of bread would foon be more abundant. He ftated, that feveral bakers, wifiiing to enrich themfelves at the public expence, had either carried off, or injured the grain entrufted to them. Several had been taken up; but, as there exifted 110 l lw for the puniihment of them, he moved, that the penalties pronounced againft agents, betraying the truft repoied in them, ( hould attach upon Bakers, Commiflaries, and all perfons employed in watching over and diftributing provifions.— Decreed. Barras, who had juft arrived from the Coaft, announced, that a conliderable quantity of provifions was 011 the road to Paris; that from Oftend alone 5000 quintals of corn had arrived at'Senlirs. " Yet a little patience," he exclaimed, " and the Citizens vvilLreceive a much larger portion of bread than they have hitherto received."—( Applaufe.) The decree and the lpeech of Barras were ordered to be ( tuck up in the molt confpicuous parts of Paris, nature; their connections with one another conlis in univerfal morals. II.

JrmcsXyon, who in January Ssffiort, 1794, de- » tnurred to two indiftments srainll him for forgery, was ordered to be difebarged from the matters contained in tbe faid indiftments, as it was the opinion of the Judges, that the crime which lie was guilty of was not that ftatcd in the indiftment, and upon thefe grounds the Judges agreed that judgment ( hould be given againft the Crown, James Clark, alias Sbiers, was capitally indifted for counterfeiting, or caufing to be forged and counterfeited, a draught 111 the name ot Mr. ] ebh, value 22I. with intent to defraud Sir R. Carr Glynn, and Co. and in the fecond count, he ftood charged with uttering the fame, with intent to defraud Mr. Jebb. The prifoner went to the Bell and Crown Inn,' Holborn, dined there, and requefted of the landlord to fend a perfon with the draught in queftion, to the houfe of Sir C. R. Glynn, and Co. Richard Judge, the waiter, took thedraught a n i gave it to William Cole, a porter belonging to the place, who went with it and was flopped. He returned in cuftodyy and met Clark at the door going out, who was immediately fecttred. His defence was, that he got it from a perfon of the name of Birch, for goods at bis fnop. Mr, K K O W L Y S and Mr. A L L Y , as Cuinfel for the prifoner, took an objeftion to the indiftment ii » point of law, viz. that the m* te drawn 011 Sir R. Glynn might not be intended 011 the houfe of Sir R. Carr Glynn, and Co. and that the indiftment was a bad one.— Guilty— Death. Aged 50. The prifoner product! written piper, betro- imr T- o Lp recommended, as an obj ft ot mercy, 111 confideration of a wife and five children, who were in diftrefled circumftances. The Jury on thefe grounds recommended him to the Court. Maria Therefa Pw^ ofwas indifted, for that flie, on the 14th of April laft, near the Highway at Chelfea, 011 John Courtois did make an affault, and unlawfully did put him in fear, and take from his perfon by force, and againft his will, a certain paper writing, purporting to be a prorniffory note, dated March 30, 1795, with the name of the faid John Courtois thereto fubferibed, for the value of 2, cool, the property of the ( aid John Couitois. The cafe, on the part of the profecution, was opened by Mr. Shepherd ; he ftated all the circumftances at full length ; but as they were nearly the fame as have been already detailed to the public, it is needlefs to repeat them. This cafe, he remarked, was of fo extraordinary a nature, he could not help raking fome notice c'f what appeared to him to be the law upon it. T i ft was an offence againft an aft of Parliament, the 2d of George II. Chap. 25. which ftatcd, that if any perfon fliould fteal, or take by robbery, an Exchequer Bill, Promiffory Note, or Bill, for the payment of any Aim of money, being the property of any perfon, fuch psrfon, fo ftealing, or taking away by robbery, ( hould be deemed guilty of felony, in the fome in inner as if fuch perfon had ftolen any goods or money to that amount, and which was fecured thereby. This ftatute therefore made a rromiffory note of the fame value as money, in regard' to the committing of a theft upon it. Th; s cafe he contended came exaftly within the meaning of the aft, for if Mr. Courtois had met his death after this note had been thus taken from him, there could be no doubt but that his executors muft have paid the 2, oool. fuppofed to be fecured by it, they could have no means of avoiding tbe payment. He concluded with obferving, that he had nothing more to do than to call his witneffes to prove the cafe which | he had opened; having done fo, be was entitled to call upon tbe Jury to pronounce theprifoner guilty. The firft, witi! efs called, was Mr. Conrtois himfelf, the perfon on whom the robbery was alledged to have be- jn committed. Mr. Fif: T. ni s a , ea'ding C. ooxu nfel for the prifotve'r, " objected to Mr. Courtois as a witnels. on the ground that he was an interefted ' witnefs. It was his intereil to invalidate a note, for which, if good, he muft £> ay z, oool. and rodeftroytheintei'eftoftheaccufed, wh", if the note was a good one, would be entitled to'ieceive 2, oool under it. This point being argued at full length, the Court " determined that Mr. Courtois fliould not be exa* ftiined, he not being a competent wilnefs. FROM T : i E LONDON G A Z E T T E , M A Y 2 1. MORSE- OUARLSSI MAY I J. A Difpatch, of which tbe following is ah cxtraftj has been received from Lieutenant- General David Dundas, by his Royal Highncfs the Duke of York, and tranfmitted by his Rojal Highnefs to th; Right Hon. Henry Dundas, one of his Majefty's principal Mary Brown, Mrs. Phipoe'sfervant, then gave an j Secretaries of State account of the whole cafe, from the coitling of Mf. Courtois to the houfe, to his going out of i t ; of his " Dicpholti, May 0, 17951 " We have jufl heard thafthe Auftrians have been Wing tied to the chair by her miftrefs andtierfelf; fuccefsful, though not without the lofs of fix or'feven bf the holding of a knife to his throat; of his draw- ; hundred men, in driving the French from the pdft i n g the note in quefhon; of piftols being On the of Mombach, near Mayence, and on the heights; table, and knives covered with black filk, & c. of a I before which place they wiil eftabiifh part of their fcentleman in the houfe taking fome fhare in directing 1 army.'' how the note fhouldbe drawn, & c. and all the other circuniitancesof this extraordinary cafe. It appeared by the evidence of a watchman^ as alfo of Mn Courrois's own foil and iervant, that he Was wounded as the girl had defcribed. It appeared a'lfo by the'evidence of the officers from Bow- ftreet, that the prifoner was unwilling to go with them, and- wilhed to conceal tbe note i n quefti'jn, which they found in her poffeffioYi. After the whole of the evidence was gone through, Mr. F I E L D I N G contended, that Mary Brown was an accomplice, and that ( he was not corroborated by the teftimony of the other witnefles, and, therefore, her evidence being goo. i for nothing, it was u'nneceffary for him to crofs- examine her. The Court being bf a different opinion, Mr. F I E L D I N G crofs- examined her, when nothing very t material occurred different from her original examination. Mr. F I E L D I N G then ftrenuoufly contended, that there was no cafe made out on the part of the profecution which ought to go the jury at all, but that flie ought to be acquitted upon the evidence as it itood, without any defence. Mr. Juftice G R O S E over- ruled this, and fubmitted the cafe to the Jury. He was of opinion that the charge was well laid in the indiftment, and the question was, Whethet the Jury were fatisfied that the evidence fpoke the truth. He left that point entirely to them. ' The Jury, after confidcring the cafe for about ten minutes, delivered in their verdift of— Guilty. Mr. G A R D N E R , one of the prifoner's Counfel, immediately thereon, moved an arreft of judgment. His objeftion went to the concluding part of the indiftment, which fays, " againft the form of the jiatute." & c. He contended, that as the offence with which the prifoner was charged, was grounded upon two ftatutes, the conclufton of the indiftment ( hould be againft the form of the ftatutes, & c. He cited two or three cafes out of Hale's Pleas of the Crown, and Coke, Elizabeth, which were, he Contended, precifely analogous to the prefent. Mr. S H E P H E R D , on the other fide, contended, that the prefent indiftment was grounded upon the ad Geo. II. c. 25 only, and had no reference whatever to any other ftatute. The Court upon confidering the arguments on both fides, took time to deliver their opinion thereon; an. d 011 Saturday Mrs. Pbipoe was refpited by the Court till the opinion of the twelve Judges can be taken on her cafe.

M Y LORD, I have rec- ived your Lordlhip's note, accompanyi n g the Memorial of the Weft India Planters and j Merchants, praying for a ftrong military force, both by fea and land, for the general protection of the Britifh Weft India Iflands, and feparate garrifon to j be ftationed in each Ifland ; alfo for a public difavowal of the Proclamations iffued by Sir Charles Grey and Sir John Jervis. I feel much fatisfaftion in recollefting, that at no period fince the commencement of the war, has there been a deficiency of exertions, in furn'fhaig the Weft India Poffelfions with fuch a fupply of both naval and military defence, as the national force of the country would admit o f ; and if at any time thefe exertions have not, in all refpefts, had their complete effeSts,. it has arlfen from circumftances, in which it is impoilible to impute any blame to his Majefty's Miniflers. Thefe exertions will be unremitted; but you are aware, that in • fending reinforcements to the Weft Indies, the feafon of the year muft of neceflity be attended t o ; and permit me to take the liberty of fuggefting to the confideration of the Weft India Planters and Merchants, how far fuch frequent public difcuflions on their own fuppofedweaknefs is not calculated to in creafe, rather than diminifh their danger. I am well aware, that the prefent warfare is in almoft every refpeft different from any that ever exifted ; and that there is top much reafon to apprehend, that the objeft of the enemy with whom we are engaged, is rather a plan of favage devaftation, than of conqueft beneficial to themfelves: but I cannot adm. ir that fhr. h a plan originated in any of the rramaUions of Sir Charles Grey and Sir John Jervis, it being an abfolute certainty, that the fyftem i s the natural confequence of the principles on which the prefent Government in France is founded, and exifled long before either Sir Charles Grey or Sir John Jervis were employed in the Weft Indies. With regard to the Proclamation to which you refer, I think it unneceffary for me to add any thing to what is ftated in the letter from the Duke of Portland. It is notorious, that thefe Proclamations were abandoned or annulled almoft as foon as they Were iltued; and it muft be mere pretext, if fuch ufe is made of them as you feem to apprehend. I objeft therefore to the propofitkm of the Weft India Planters and Merchants, becaufethey call upon his Majefty's Minifters to eftabliih a general rule on a fubjeft, which, in the various ufage of war, does not admit of a fpecial definition ; and, if the matter occurs to you in the light it does to me, I am fure you c,: nnot be difpofed to continue a difcuffion, which can have no other tendency than to injure the feelings of meritorious Officers, to whofe great exertions their country is much indebted, and in particular that part of the Britifh Empire, in which the Weft India Planters and Merchants are fo deeply interefted.

King's Levees on Wednefday and Friday, which laft will beobfcrved " as a Collar Day, it being the Anniverfary of King Charlel the Second's Reftoration to the Throne. Yefterday evening, his Excellency Marquis DEL CAMPO, theSpanifh Ambaffador, had a grand route at his houfe in Manchefter- fquare. - There will be a review by the K I N G on Afhford Heath, in the courfe of a tew days. Major H E N R Y M . C L A V E R I N G , of the 98th foot, is appointed Adjutant- General to the Forces tinder the Command of the Earl of M O I R A . There are French Papers of the 16th in town. They mention the return of a number of Emigrees, and the extreme fcarcity of every thing. Mr. E N G L A N D , who has been fo long a refident in France, in confequence of the fatal duel he had with Mr. R , the brewer, who fell, is juft returned, and has given notice that he means to fake his immediate trial. On Friday evening the Bengal $ iu)> gave a magnificent Ball and Supper, & c. & c. to Mr. and Mrs. H A S T I N G S , at Willis's Rooms, at which more than 500 perfons were prefent.

The friends of SirCnARLEs G R E Y and Sir J O HN J E R V I S , whilft on the one hand they profels to court enquiry into the conduft of thofe Commanders, omit no effort to prejudice the public mind againft the channels through which alone information can be obtained of fafts alledged againft them.—- For this purpofe a memorial, figncd by a fefpeftible Merchant, as Chairman of a public meeting, is animadverted upon as if it were the aft and accufation of an individual, and ( abfurdly enough) it is :\ fked, why not detail in the memorial itfelf, every ' particular circttmftance and authority upon which it profeffes to be founded, and of which it ftates tl-._ t evidence - un be produced, if Minifters will inftltu'. e an enquiry ? Mr. Thelluffon, charged openly with giving circulation to falfhood, makes public fucli part of the vouchers for his memorial, as can, without impediment to legal proceedings,;. which are now inftituted, be at prefent brought forward. It is found that not only the names of Hie principal Commanders, but fome of thofe afting under their orders are implicated in the charge. Could this be doubted? And lhall it now be aiked of Mr. T . why have you not urged your charge againft each individual concerned, whilft he was prefent to defend himfelf ? Mr. Thelluffon, in the name of his conftituents, fought from the Britifh government an enquiry and juftice.— Minifters ( for reafons, the policy of which we will not queftion) declined the inveftigation.— A Member of Parliament accufes his memorial of fafehood. He produces the affidavits upon which it is founded; the public muft decide upon them; and Mr. Tlieiluffon, who has not been fuffered to chufe his time or manner of elucidating his memorial, cannot blame himfeif if, in repelling the odious imputation caft upon his conduct, he is und^ r the necefliry of publilhing f-. ich vouchers as are in his poffeffion; although we are perfuaded, that the fafts they are intended to prove are fuch as, for the honour of his country he would have wifhed to have been buried in obiivion. The Moniteur of the 24th ult. contains the following particulars, relative to the infurreftion which was to take place at Paris on the 20th of that month. " The confpiracy was plotted in concert with the prifoners detained in the different jails and houfes of arreft in the metropolis; eggs, half ftained red, Were to apprize them to keep themfelves in readinefs, and the number of thefe eggs was to indicate the hour of their deliverance. In a ftraw- cart, arms, files, and other inftruments for breaking open . the locks of the prifons, had been conveyed thither. Thole Reprefentatives of the People, who were accomplices in the plot, were to appear in their robes, and order the opening of the jails in the name of the Cdmmittee of General Safety, and different alarmplaces were pointed out ; the Convention was to be furrounded, and funnnened immediately to put in aftivity the Canftitution of 1793; to arreft the 73 Deputies of the G- rondiJiparty; todifmifsthe Committees of Government, banilh Tallien and Frercn, and take into cuftody Barras, Dnbois- Crance, Revere, Le gen ( Ire, and fome other Members. Thuriot, Camion, and Metitaut were to put themfelves " at the head of the infurgents, and the revifion of the judgment againft Barren, Collet, and Bill aud, was to be infilled upon, in order to get them acquitted. The heads of feveral yotjng Mufeadins ( the better fort of dple) were to be carried about on pikes; ths telegraph was to be feized upon, ana extraordinary couriers were to be difpatched to the Department*. A piece of white linen, hoifted on a pole, placed over the ftreet- door, was to point out the rendezvous of the chiefs o f the confpirators." See. & c. The Duke of Q U E E N S B E R R Y was a principal lofer at Epfoin Races. The Noble Duke had his vis- a- vis and fix horfes driving about the courfe, with two very pretty emigrees in it. The Duke was in his cabriolet. The Duke of BEDFORD, Lords ECREMONT and D E R B Y , were alfo on the courfe. Several carriages were broken to pieces; and one Lady had her arm broken. There was much private bufinefs done in the fu'indlinjr kvay at the luft Epfom Races. One black legged fellow cleared near a thoufand pounds by the old trick of an E. O. table— another had a faro table, and was on the eve of doing bufinefs, when he was detefted with a palmed card : almoft the whole of what may be juftly ftyled vagabond gamblers of London were prefent. WESTMINSTER- TFALL, SATURDAY, MAY 25. C. J. KENYON, AND A J U R Y . I V I F r t N A L againfl GAKTHAM. This was an iffue direfted by the. Court of King's Sench. to try whether the Plaintiff, the Rev. Richard Withnal had been duly nominated Mafter of the Grammar School of the Parifn of Skip ton, in Yorklhire. Mr. E R S R I N E expreffed his anxiety to befpe'ak the attention of the Jury to this cafe, becaufe the comfortable exiftence of a very honourable perfoa entirely depended on it. That, however, would not be fufficient, unlefs the law, juftice, and reafon of tbe cafe, were With the Plaintiff. This Grammar School was endowed, in the time of Edward VI. by William Amiftead Clerk,- Canon Refidentiary of Srs Paul's, London, who, by a deed, gave the nomination of a Mafter to this School to the Vicar and Churchwardens of the Parifh of Skipton for the time being: and if the Vicar $ nd Churchwardens of this Parifh did not exercife their-' right within a month, it devolved on Lincoln College,. in Oxford; and if that Corporation did not exercife its franchife, within the fame period, it devolved on the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's and if they did not exercife their right, within a month, it reverted back to the Vicar and Churchwardens of the Parifh of Skintonfor ever. By immemorial cuftoin, there were eleven Churchwardens in this parifh. The Plaintiff was nominated by the Vicar and fix of the Churchwardens, and the great quefliort in this cafe was, whether the Vicar stnd a majority of the Churchwardens, were competent to eleft a Mafter for this School ^ or whether unanimity wis neceffary. The pro i: s ofthe fchool per annum, were between 3 and 400I. The queftion of faft fubmitted tci the Jury was, the cuftom as to. the mode of election ; and they found that the ufage had been that the School- mafter had been elefted by the Vicar, artd the majority of the Cliitrch- wardens. After a very able fpeech from Mr. BEARCROFT, on the part of fhe Defend nit, he ftated two points Of law, which, with the approbation of the noble and learned Judge, were referved for ' the confideration of the Court of King's Bench— Firft, What the effeft of the dleed of the founder was ? and, lecondly,- Wiiethef any evidence was admiflible by way of explanation of that deed ?— Verdift for Plaintiff, damages one ( hilling.

On Wednefday night, about ten o'clock, a fire broke out in that magnificent edifice, Cliefde'rrhoufe, which in ^ ree hours entirely confumed the fame, leaving only the outer walls ftanding. The caufe of the fire is Varioufiy accounted for. It is generally believed that one of the chambermaids turning down the beds in the evening, left a candle burning in the middle apartments, which fet fire to the curtains i but this is mere furmize. The flames broke out at nine o'clock at night, and were fo fudden and fo rapid that all affiftance to fave the • furniture and the houfe were vain.

Bar on the other hand we 1/ arn by the laft Hamburgh Mail, under date. of the 4 ' h of May, that the E M P E ^ L O t's M; ifter at Ratijlon had prefented to the D I E T a State Paper, ( given in T H A J R I M E S of yeiicrday,, p der ihe date of Rati fan); from which feveral of our daily papers have drawn a very erroneous conchifieii. altogether contrary to the rpiwon of thofe belt informed on political affaiis. aruFto K N O W N F A C T S. This declaration, on the part o f h i s I M P E R I AL M A J E S T Y , as Chief of the Empire, jrofefle; a difpofirion to enter i n ' o a negocjatiori with Fr nee. It is obvious, however, that his Maji f v, in making this intimation to the D: et at Katijlon, had in view to render nugatory the mediation offered by the King of P R U S S I A ; io prevent any partial Treaty being entered into, through him, with France, which might te. id t difl cate the grand German confederacy Tto place his Imperial Majefty at the head'of thofe German States which are difpefed to treat for Pe c • and to accelerate or retard the, negotiations, an ordi r g to his '- wn interefts as a' Sovereign Prince.— Laftlv, this Declaration was jma< le% t '' he. moment of t e E M P E R O R ' S b. ing informed of the fe{*. ra: e 1' ce made between frufliaand France, . which e / i - alarmeo. inn ; an^ d was ill'ued in order, to quiet ds of the Princes of the Empire.

In'oppoiiiion to the idle fprcula'Ions of o- ir cotemporaries, who feera only to look at the furlace of things, we deciareour opinion, that fo far lrcm there being any profj eft of Peace, the flames of warwdi! extend much wider within a very fhort fpace of time. It we are not very much mittiken indeed, a war between R U S S I A and P R U S S I A is not very aiftant; which will, in all probability, make: his Pruflian Majefty forely repent of his Mucbia'- jdi& n Poiicy. The declaration publifhed by the King ofPruflia, on the'i ft inft, of which we have" given a correft aralylis fn the 2d Page of this Paper, and wherein he endeavours to juftifV his late treaty of peace with the French Republic, gives room for two obfervatidns, which appear to us of- great importance. Firft, that Monarch openly declares, " that, in cafe tlie war ihould be continued by the German Empire, he was bvund to abftain from all participation in iV, by furnilhing neither contingents' of troops nor fupplies of mojiey." This declaration, in our apprehenfion, frills little fhort o | j . n attempt to difiolve the Confederative S_\ ftein of the German Empire ; or, at leaft, to fecede from the 6 rtnanic Body, fince the . war having been determinediupon by a general cinclujhii, fanftioned by the fiipreoRHChief of the Empire, it is to be continued by its members, till anoUxer conclujnw, leg• lifed by the fame fanftion, lias aboldhed and abrogated the former. This not having been done,, the withdrawing of his contingent from the Army of the Empire expofes his Prulnan Majefty, , a, Ekftor of Bramienburgh and Prince of the Krn- ' pire, to the fame procefs of outlawry, as was inftituted againft his illuflrious anceftor; which, if it flioitld . ake place, would no doubt form the fble trait of refetnblance he will ever bear to that great Prince. It is rather ftrange, that the French Revolution which began with tearing aluyder ail the bonds of ( ocial life, ihould terminate by diffolving all political ties ; as if it were deftined to l'pread over the whole world a total dereliftion of all principles, and to nnnihilate every relation which hitherto has enfured the fafety of governments, and the profperity of nations. Secondly— His Majefty tells us, that, " from the ruins of the molt horrid defpetifm and anarchy, arofe in France a more ! i lid government, and a moderation difpofcd for p e ; c i ." Now, of what kind or folh'. ity Can a provil'; onu, ry government be pofiefled; " which holds out no guarantee for the Tights of man, but the moral charafter of thole in power; and which cherifhesthe hoj e s o f t ' ery. iaftion?"— ( fee Cambace- | ilhif'ons,' the end of which, however, feem to !> e drawijig nigh a conclufio ? " It is a painfid fightV' fays Mercifr, a Member of the Convent on, tin his aun is, to fee the loofe terms or Royafifm, Fanaticifm, and Ariftocracy, become the fignal for profscution. The freedom of opinion is Wan to ly attacked; ' the liberty of thought is opnrefi' d, and viftims are ftill facrificed. Exaggerated defcriptions, vague declamations and wild denunciations do ftill engrofs the attention of the Legiflative b. dy. Ici- al confpiracies ace formed, and chimeras and phantoms < onjured up to combat them, and keep aiive hatred and miftrnft. The pallions are. ftill at work. This fcdndalotts confliit w iir engender new convulfions and hew ca'laliiities. Does a fparcitv, or the high price of prdvifions, diftrefs " he Republic, our e- irs are immedjateiv llruck with outcries againft the confpira'cy of Royalifts and fanatics. But where do thefe confpirato'rs aflemble ? Where are their means? Endeavours are conftantly made to divert the public attention from the obvious caufes of the liiiturbances which agitate Paris, as well as the Departments. Our fquadrons and convoys, captured by the enemy, the confumption of the armies, the long t' raldom of trade and commerce, the atrocities commit ted by the Ri volutionary armies, the immenfenumber of hands taken from the plough, the plunder of private property, the forced requilitions, the crimes of the ancient government, the continual dilapidations, robberies, and aflaffinations; the enormous exptnee, and the oblivion and fcorn of all good principles:— thefe are the true fources of that torrent of misfortunes which f eeps us alone ; and what has as yet been done to put a period to this our diftrc- ffed and woeful fituation ? One wills a Revolutionary Government; another propoles tiie orginiz ition. of decadary fi ftivals ; and fome attempt even to command confidence, and to force laws upon the people, which they abhor." To judge by this pifture, drawn by an eye- witnefs, and a Representative oft'ie Fie. ch people, France has changed her fyftem, not. h Jr gov rnment; or, tofpeak m re correftly, ( lie is ftill devoid of ah regular govemm tit, es th s cannot iwlfibly exift without a fettled conftkution. The '' dements of the moft horrid defpotifm and anarchy," which his Prulfian Majefty conceives to have entirely v'nifhsd, are ftill in full vigour.; they operated forcibly in the^ late ftrong and fevere afts ag. iinft periodical writers, and ag inft the Mfnifters of the ancient religion; a d France, therefore, ftill placed between tief otifm and anarchy, remains in th t iihn. tion, wherein his M. ijefly agrees, or at e., it fuppofesit was impo. hble, with any kind of lecurity, to conclude aTreaty of Peace with Ijer. • Camps are immediately to be formed in the four provinces of Ireland, of about 5600 men each: Lord C A R H A M P T O N will command in Leinfter, and his ciimp will be near Brenanftowrn on the direct road to Bray ; General Ma i . s i ' y will command in Munfter, and will form Ids camp near the Cove of Cork ; and General D A L K Y M P L E is to. command the camp which is to be formed in the North: Thefe are all that are at prefeut declared.

The C O N V E N T I O N , in order to miflead the public opinion in refpeft to the affair near Mentx, of the 2,0th ult. in its account of that day mentions only . the aftion in the wood op Mombach, two leagues from Meatz ; aud paflesover in fdence the engagement near Hardenberg, diftant bur one league from that fortrefs. The aim of the Auftrians to dillodge the French from the heights of Hardenberg, and eftibiiih themfelves on this commanding eminence, was by them completely attained; purfuing the enemy into the wood of Mombach. They had no intention to remain there, and of courfe fell back to Hardenberg. This retrograde movement has, neverthelefs, beenmifreprefented by the Convention as a forced retreat, and lerved it for a pretext, to appropriate to the Republican army the honour and advantage of the day, by ftathig, in general terms, that the Auftrians had been driven back to the out works of the place. But all the letters from Franckfort and Mentz, of fo late a date as the 10th inft. affert. unaninaoufly, the Imperial troops to be ( till in poilefiion of the heights of Hardenberg ; adding, that ihey are bufily employed in ftrengtnening and increafing the works conftrufted thereby theFrench. We yefterdav received letters from Sheernefs, which mention the arrival at the Nore of the Trial cutter, commanded by Lieutenant M A L B O N . This veflel efcaped lately from'Clovehaven, near Mandal in- Norway, off which place there appeared, 011 the 4th inftent, a French frigate of 40 guns, and an armed brig. They came with the intention of takidg the Trial; but in the evening of that day, it blowing hard, with fhowers of fnow, the Trial run out and efcapcd. This French frigate has been at Chriftianfand during the winter, where almoft the whole of the crew died by ftcknefs ; 150 men were ordered to join her from Bergen, who had been left there in hofpital by fome French frigates, and towards the latter end of laft month, a Frenth brig arrived from Dunkirk, with men enough to man her and carry her to France. This brig Oil her paffage captured a brig in ballaft. belonging to Sunderland. The French brig carried an account that a French fquadron would be off the Naze of Norway by the latter end of the prefent month. Accounts from Lnuzatins mention, that the Pays de Gex, near Geneva, is in a deplorable ftate for want of provifions. At Gen; va they dread a famine. I n defiance of the A f t o f Parliament, and in fpite o f a c c i d e n t s , the R o y f t o n S t a e l e f t t o w n o n Saturday a f t e r n o o n , w i t h 17. o u t f i d e p a f s i i g c r s , belides 6 infide and feveral children. number wounded and taken prifoners. The Mm tia, on their march, were fired at firft by the infurgents, and in turn, completely emptied their cartridge boxes of 17 rounds per man againft their affailants. • The unfortunate wretches fought with lavage fury for a time, but feeing their utter inadequacy to withftand the cool bravery and Heady difcipline of the Militia, they foo: i difperfed, and endeavoured to maintain themfelves by firing in parties from behind hedges and walls, but they were followed by a party of the Militia, who completely routed them. A letter was received yelferday in town from Sligo, by a gentleman of refpeftability, ftating that an engagement had taken place in that quarter, between the Clare Militia and the Defenders, in which fome of the Militia were killed ; but how m a i y of their antagoniftsfell, is not yet afbertained. A gentleman who lives within a few miles of Kells, was a few days ago cadeil upon by a man who lived in his neighbourhood, to inform him lhat he was three times fworn by a party of Defenders that day, to call and inform him, that they would come fa his houfe that night, or the night after, and cut his head off, if he did not reftore a miller he had difpofieffed, and give him the mill for fuch a rent as they . lnould appoint. The poor man who came with this meifige had every hair on his head pulled off before lie confcnted to go with i t ; and even then would not have complied, but they threatened to cut out his tongue, and were preparing for the cruel operation. The poor man appeared as if he had been fcalped. A fmith who fnv him in this frightful fituation, and pitying the man, faid the ruffians who had thus abufed him ought to be feverely puniflied. This expreffion was told to the Defenders, and a party of them came fhortly after to his forge, and for faying fo, cut off his fore- finder; and hearing afterwards that he • gain reprobated their proceedings, they paid him another vifit, and cut off both his ears, and nailed them to a tree at the Chapel- door. Lord C A R H A M P T O N , as Commander of the military force inConnaught, has, with equal wifdom and humanity, abftained from fpilling the blood of the lower orders. His Lordfhip's objeft has been to acquire a thorough knowledge of the ftate of men's minds throughout the country; to be informed of the precife nature and extent of the complaints which have driven the commonaliy to fuch deiperate expedients, with the hope o f enforcing redrefs; and his determination was, to bring them back to obedience to the laws by remonftrance and reafon and to have recotrfe to military force only in cafes of intrinfic guilt or incorrigible follj.

The 25th Dragoons, Effex Cavalry, the Royal Cornwall, Northampton, Morimouth, and Brecon Regiments, are alfo on their ground at Roborough Camp. The weather is very fine and warm, and vegetation begins toaffume its fummer appearance. The Alfred,, of 74 guns, is to be commiffioned, and the command. given to Captain DRU RY. She is a fine fl'ip, and thoroughly repaired. Wednefday Thomas Lee, ot the Northampton Regiment of Militia, alunatic, hung himfelf at Kayham Point.

W. byS. . Hitherto the exertions of his Lordfhip have been crowned with fuccefs. The rejection of the Catholic Bill has giv 11 the infurgents a plea for diffatisfaftion ; but, diftinftly from political caufes, the complaints of thefe wretched people narrow themfelves into three heads: the rack- rents at which landlords let their grounds; the extremely low price of labour ; and the rigorous execution of tythes and final'dues. f h e Princefs E L I Z A B E T H is perfectly recovered of her late flight indifpofit on. Lady J E R S E Y is reported to be pregnant; and ftrange as it may feem, was particularly diftinguifhed during the late fuperb fetes at Frogmore.
