Since the publication of the Narrative up to the 30th ult. little of consequence occurred. By the best information it appears, that the enemy had in some meafure divided : the Chateau- bellair, Bri- gands, having; taken post at Morne Cochin, and the Caribs and some Whites and Mulattoes having established a camp on very strong ground above Mr. Fairbairn's. From this place they moved in small bodies in every direction, and sometimes made their appearance on Greatheed's estate, but con- stantly retreated on being fired on from the post at Sion Hill. The Fleet, which we have been so long and so anxiously expecting, at last arrived at Barbadoes on the 30th, and on the lft the Merchantmen for this Island arrived here. The day after the arrival of the ships a straggling Negro was observed in the neighbourhood of the camp, and being furrounded by the armed Negroes and taken, confessed himself a spy who had been to the enemy's camp with information concerning the fleet. On the evening of the 5th, two transports, under convoy of the Montague of 74 guns, arrived here, having on board the 46th Regiment, who were landed the next day. It is impossible for us to express the joy and exultation felt by all ranks at the sight of so fine a corps, which has now placed the town and fort in the completest security. On the 8th, the ship Cochran, Capt. Wiseman, arrived here from Liverpool, and not observing the ruined state of the conntry, put nine of his people On shore, at Greatheed's Bay, to prevent their being pressed. They were immediately observed by the Caribs from their camp, and a large party marched down and surrounded them ; a party pushed after them from Sion- hill, but were unable to rescue them. • It being feared the like might happen to other sailors, and it being judged expedient to establish a post at Calliaqua, to prevent succours being thrown into the enemy, an attack on their camp was deter- mined on by his Excellency the Governour; for that purpose, on the iotl » at midnight, different parties marched out, and three arrived at the dif- ferent posts allotted to them at four o'clock in the morning. It was intended that the Grenadiers under Capt. Campbell should make the principal attack, and that the enemy fhould be cut off, in their retreat to Calliaqua, by the Light Infantry under Capt. Hall; but that corps being discovered by the enemy, a severe fire was opened on them ; upon which Capt. Hall advanced with his men to the storm, and met with a resistance more vigorous than was expected; but the Grenadiers under Capt. Campbell, and 22 of the 60th under Lieut. Farquharson, coming up, the whole charged the enemy with irresistible im- petuosity, and drove every thing before them. The enemy fled on all sides; and, had the party of Mi- litia and Seamen been able to gain the ground al- lotted to them, they would probably have been cut off. Besides the Officers above- mentioned, who particularly distinguished themselves, Capt. William Fraser, ( Manager on Mr. Bannatyne's estate), with his small party of Voluntier Militia, behaved with much spirit; and ' tis with extreme regret that we mention the names of Messrs. Thomas Taylor, Philip Hepburn, and John M'Broom, who fell in the action. Dr. Alexander Stewart and Mr. Joseph Richardson were wounded. The loss of the Regulars fell chiefly on the light company of the 46th : one man was killed and se- veral wounded. The Artillery lost one man. The loss of these brave fellows was in a small measure compensated by the recovery of the sailors who had been taken prisoners, the enemy not having, accord- ing to their custom, immediately put them to death. As the Caribs always carry off their dead, not more than 20 of them were found killed, and some of the Brigands. After we had been some time in the pos- session of the camp, a Carib, who was affirmed to be the son of their late Chief Chatoye, was brought in and put to death by the enraged Negroes, not- withstanding the endeavours of the party; thus falling by less glorious hands than his perfidious fire, who met his fate by the bayonet of Major Leith, at the storm of Dorsetshire- hill. After the troops had refreshed themselves, a detachment marched down to Calliaqua, and established post on the Barrack- ground. The Caribs have had the audacity several times to come within reach of the musquetry of the post, and have lost several men from their temerity. On the evening following the storming of the Carib camp, the bodies of the three young Volun- tiers who fell at the attack were taken from the Ordnance- Office to the Church- Yard, drums muffled beating the Dead March, Artillery, and Militia marching with arms reversed.— The Artillery in the handsomest manner paying the compliment to Mr. Taylor, due to Commissioned Officers. All the inhabitants not on duty also attending to pay the last melancholy offices to departed valour. We shall be excused in observing, that Mr. Tayor and Mr. Hepburn were two of the most promising young men in the island; were great friends, and that they fell within a sea yards of each other. Sincerely do we join in the general regret felt by the Colony for the loss of thofe three voluntiers; and, until the island shall be able to record their valour on a more durable monument, we shall hold up their con- duct to the emulation of others, concluding with this just tribute to their memory— That Messrs. Thomas Taylor, Philip Hepburn, and John M'Broom died in the service of their Country. LONDON. Preparations are making for the Summer Excur- sion of their Majesties and the Princesses to Wey- mouth, for which place they will set out from Windsor the middle of next month ( August), and make a stay of six weeks, as heretofore. The Duke of York will shortly set out on his military Tour, as Commander in Chief, in which character he is to visit not only the Camps superiour and subordinate, but also all the military stations in the kingdom, which will take up a period of six weeks. Accounts received from France state, that the In- furgent Royalists in Vendee, & c. had cut off all communication between Paris and Brest. Government has received intelligence from Brit- tany via Jersey, where some Royalists have lately arrived. We understand, that it concerns the mission of Mr. de Pusaye. From the account of these Royalists, it appears, that Mr. de Bois- Hardyt who was said to have been arrested with Mr. de Cormartin, has been massacred by the Re- publicans, after he had killed two of them. It seems certain, that Lord Moira has been ap- pointed Commander in Chief of the troops destined to effect a Descent on the Sea- Coast of France; which will be carried into execution as soon as in- formation is received of the Emigrants on board Commodore Warren's Convoy having landed on that Coast. On the 22d inst. Louvet, President of the French Convention, promised the Ministers of the Batavian Republick, in the name of the French Common- wealth, that the tri- coloured Banner should be planted on the Banks of the Thames ; and on the 23d Lord Bridport defeated the fleet of the Con- vention. This brilliant victory was, no doubt, the best possible reply to the President's speech ; but we much doubt whether the Myn Heeren will consider it as a pledge for the safety and indemnication pro- mised them by their new allies. At Painboeuf, near Nantes, on the 12th instant, a fire broke out on board the Aurora, an American ship, which having communicated to the St. Ni- cholas, Young Charles, Simple, Alexander, and Mere Cherie, all these vessels burnt down to the water's edge. The loss is estimated at two millions and a half ( of Livres.) Four American sailors pe- rished in the flames. The town, which was in the most imminent danger, was preserved by a strong North- East wind. Extract of a letter from Elsineur, dated June 9, to a House in Leith. " We are now happy to inform you, that the dreadful fire at Copenhagen is, thank God, entirely extinguished, after having consumed 58 streets and lanes, consisting of nearly 1500 houses. It was a melancholy accident, and will ruin many individuals. The King's Yard has suffered the least." Extract of a letter from Portsmouth, June 28. " By one of Admiral Cornwall's squadron we learn, that on its standing away for the Channel, nine of the French ships gave chace, in the course of which they came up with the Mars and the Triumph, the rearmost of the British squadron, with which they immediately engaged. Admiral Corn- wallis, whose flag was flying on board of the Royal Sovereign, immediately assembled his ship's com- pany, and addressed them as follows: —" My lads, none or all must fall!" Three general huzzas then succeeded, and the squadron directly bore down to the assistance of the two ships already deeply engaged. The nine French ships immediately bore off, and the other ( twenty one) would not come to action." Rear- Admiral Man, with the greatest part of his squadron and convoy, has reached Gibraltar. A Gentleman who arrived from Jersey and Guern- sey on Sunday last, says that Provisions are very plentiful and cheap in those islands ; the best beef 3d. and mutten 2jd. per lb. Bread and all other articles in proportion. The Merchantmen that arrived at Grenada have been obliged to find another Market for their cargoes, as it was judged unsafe to land them. An order is just issued for all Aids- du- Camps to the Commanders at the different little Camps, to quit the nominal service, and to join their respective Regiments. In consequence of this order, oue of the Regiments of Guards has at once recovered 18 Officers, who otherwise would have been absent as Aides- du- Camp. By the Jessie, Graham, arrived in Clyde, from Jamaica, last from Charleston, South Carolina, we learn, that the ship Mermaid, of Clyde, had been condemned by the Court of Admiralty at Charleston; that the Betty, Cathcart, also belong- ing to Clyde, had been released ; and that the Pro- cess relative to the Tivoli was not determined when the Jessie sailed. Not less than 17 Privateers were fitted out from Charlston. The Hamilton, Freer, from Bristol to Virginia, foundered at sea on the 13th of April ; crew saved. The Laberen, Maden, and Cariscrona, Erickson, with Wheat, from Copenhagen for Dunkirk and Ostend, are taken and carried into Yarmouth by the L'Espeigle sloop of war. The Queen Charlotte, M'Pherson, with clay, is lost on Hurst Beach, off Poole. Yesterday morning a second Detachment from the three Regiments of Guards marched from the Parade in St. James's Park for Warley- Camp. At a Court of Aldermen held yesterday at Guild- hall, present the Lord- Mayor, 13 Aldermen, and the Recorder, John Liptrap and Richard Glode, Esqrs. entered into Bond to take upon tnem the of- fice of Sheriffs on Michaelmas Eve next. Two Persons were allowed and one fworn to a * s Brokers. „- - Eleven Persons were sworn Rulers of the Water- men and Lightermen's Company. The Master, & c. of the Bakers Company repre- sented, that, owing to the great demand for Wheat by Millers from several parts of the Country, of- fering a high price, the Factors agreed to divide the Wheat at Market, amounting to 2132 Quarters, among the Millers, who generally supply the Bakers in London conditionally, that the flour should be forwarded to Market, and agreed not to advance the price higher than 80s. per quarter, and 60s. per sack of flour. The Company of Bakers requested to raise the Bread half an Assise, as they were loosers at the present price. The Court ordered it to rise to 10jd. the Quartern Loaf. Extract of a letter from Cork, June 20. " A Dutch man- of- war, of 68 guns, is now lying here under the guns of the Polypheme, a 64. The Dutchman must either strike his colours, er acknowledge the Stadtholder." DUTCH PROPERTY ACT.

THE following Letter from John Stanger, Esq, late of Rockingham Castle, now of Glayston, Rutland, to Mr. BERRY, will be an Addition to the many Proofs of the extraordinary Efficacy of this Medicine. " SIR, " After a long and painful Affection of my Liver, attended " with Jaundice to such an inveterate Degree, that the most " eminent of the Faculty thought that it was in a Schirrous " State, and after trying Variety of Medicines without the leaft " Relief, I was recommended to take your BILIOUS PILLS, " from which I soon experienced . a happy Recovery.

" JOHN STANGER:" These Pills, which are almost a Specisick in Billious Com plaints, ard found to be an admirable Remedy for the Jaundice; 4 having restored numbers, even in the last stage of that Disorders; They are also an excellent Medicine for persons whose con- stitutions have been impaired by hard drinking. as a purgative, particularly when there is Bile in the stomach and Intestines, and when its passage into the Bowels requiring no particular attention to regimen or diet. - fc - j ^ They are sold by Mr. Francis Newbery, at hiss Warehouse for Dr. James's Powder, No. 45, at the East endof St, Paul's Church- yard, London, being a few doors from, tile fcoAier of Cheapside, and by thofe perfons only whom he shall in boxes, price 5s. each, duty included; and as the surest mark of authenticity, purchafers will obferve, that Mr. Newbery's name it engraved in the stamp. following is the Copy of a Letter from Ulm, dated June 8 ; inserted in one of the late Paris Moniteurs. ] THERE is no doubt but the last commotions at Paris were the work of England, Austria, and the Emigrants. It was a vast plan which had been two months in preparation, and was better combined than all the preceding plots of the Coalition. They were so sure of their success, that they triumphed in anticipation, saying, " Now is the moment of our glory arrived in a fortnight we shall be masters of Paris and all France."— The whole of the Austrian army was in perfect readiness, all the great preparations having been made from Loerach to Coblentz, as well as at Mentz itself. The troops were to cross the Rhine to attack the French on every side ; and the signal for the grand operation was expected; it was a courier who was to come from Basle with the intelligence that the great blow, of the success of which no one entertained the smallest doubt, had been struck at Paris. On the evening of the 19th of May, the courier reached General Clairfayt's Head- quarters; but he brought the meloncholy news, that the blow had entirely faoled. Couriers now flew like lightning in every direction, to . carry to the different corps d'Armee the orders by which the dispositions were to be changed. The conspiracy at Toulon, and the new revolt of the Chouans, will sufficiently elucidate the enormous extent to which the plot was carried, The Committee of Emigrants which directed all this, understood how to take advantage of the check even its manoeuvres had sanctioned ; and, accord- ingly, its ascendancy over the Cabinets it influenced the most, has increased prodigioufly. We see indeed • that these men have a great number of partisans, who know how to manage and direct every spring with adroitness; and we hear it openly regretted that their counsels have not been oftener listened to and followed. It was expected that a new plot would shortly be contrived ; but not that it would, be formed so soon. Scarcely, however, had the old plan failed, when the Emigrants invented and combined another more vigorous than the former. I have read the memorial in which this plan is developed, and very fully de- tailed : it is well contrived, is very striking, and I have no doubt of its acceptance Its substance is as follows :— It is in the first place proposed to the Emperour of Germany, either to make a Peace both very dishonouiabie and very in- jurious to his interest, or by adopting the proposed plan, - to have the prospect of the highest advantages in case of success; and, in case of failure, the certainty of not making on that account a Peace more unfavourable than that which would be made at present. The Emigrants demand of the Emperour eleven millions of florins, . as much ammunition, and as many guns as may be needed. The Emigrants of all the parties are to be invited in the Emperour's name, and with threats of finding an asylum no where in case they should refuse to repair to Conde's army within a stated time. Count d'Artois, Mon- sieur, & c. arc also to repair thither. If, by the time prescribed, these two Princes should fail to be with Conde's army, they will be declared to have for- feited their rights, and Conde will be proclaimed Regent and head of the enterprise. Neither the Princes, nor the followers of the Princes, such as Broglio, Calonne, Breteuil, & c. ( Conde alone is excepted,) can either concert or direct the measures. A Council of Emigrants is to be formed, consisting of the most capable men ; which, in the name, and by the authority of the Emperour, is to direct all the movements. The Emigrant army is to force the territory of Switzerland : it will then advance to Bedfort, of which it will take possesSion, and establish itself in the heart of Franche Comte. The Imperial army is to remain quiet along the Rhine, and to make the necessary movements, only to keep the Armies pf the Republic!: occupied, so as to prevent them from proceeding towards Switzerland and Franche- Comte. As soon as the army of the Emigrants shall have forced Switzerland, which has no defense on that side, the Austrian army will make an attack at every point, and cross the Rhine. The Regent of France will publish Proclamations on Proclamations, in which he will attest that he comes merely to re- establish the Constitution of 1791. He will protest against the horrors of the old Government; he will develope ideas conformable to liberty ; he will enter into violent declamations to captivate the minds of the French ; and he will engage not to trouble or molest the purchasers of national domains, whether these are the domains of the Crown, or the property of Priests or Emigrants. He will promise whatever future good order and tranquillity can demand ; he will disperse emissaries throughout France ; and the ecclesiasticks will every where prepare, the publick ---- u, i, oomntutu-' n oF 179), which they will represent as the only plank of safety. In this way a hope is entertained of establishing, in a very little time, the focus of a considerable army in Franchc, Comte, which will' in the event proceed to Paris. At the same time that the Emigrants are to force Switzerland England is to effect a descent of Emi- grants on the coast of Brittany and Normandy. This army, either purely French, or composed of the national spirit, is to join the Vandeans and Chouans, and to march to Paris by the Western side. A third point, that of the Rhine, is to be attacked by. ( lie Imperialists ; and there will be at the same time commotions in Paris, and in several other parts of the Republick. What serves to brighten the prospect is, that, up to the epoch of the plan, the massacres in the South continue organised ; and that thus a great number of true patriots, comprehended in the proscription of the Terrorists, will have been exterminated, imprisoned, put to flight, or palsied by terror. In case this vast enterprise should not be crowned with entire success, the Emigrants hope to obtain a Capitulation, simikar to that of Charette and his followers. The plan appears to me to have been well con- ceived; and I can have no doubt of its being ap- proved and accepted by the Cabinets of Vienna and London' I am even inclined to think that this is already the cafe, feeing that Conde's army is already two leagues only from Bafle. Conde has authority to follow up every plan of recruiting, and to aug- ment his army to the utmoft poflible extent. From every part of hither Auftria, warlike ( lores, guns of the largeft caliber, and provifions, are tranfported down the Danube to Guntzbourg in Suabia, fituated on the bank of that river, a few- leagues diftance from this place. Mortars and befieging artillery even are on their way from the very extremity of Bohemia. It would appear that Guntzbourg will become the centre of the operations of the army of the Emigrants.. FRENCH CONSTITUTION. tHE following are the principal dispositions of the new Constitution, or Constitutional Act, proposed to the French Convention on the 23d: — I. The French Republick is one and indivifible. II. The Universality of the French Citizens is the Sovereign. III. The Republick is divided into Depart- ments, and the Departments into Cantons and Communes. IV. Every man born or resident in France, in- scribed on the register of his Canton,- and who pays any contribution whatever, is a French Citizen. V. The Frenchmen who made one or several campaign's in the War of Liberty, shall enjoy the rights of a Citizen, without the former condition. VI. Foreigners become Frenchmen, after having resided seven years in France ; if they pay direct contributions, if they possess landed property, and if they are married with a French woman. VII. The French Citizens alone shall have a right to vote in Primary Assemblies. VIII. In the 9th year of the Republick a grada- tion shall take place in the Publick Offices. IX.

( From the Courier Universal.) THE misfortunes of the Daughter of Louis XVI. claim the attention of every feeling mind. We have already pleaded in her behalf; we now undertake the defense of this tender victim of the passions of men. " The Publick have as yet no idea of . the atro- cities committed in the different prisonS, especially against the Members of the ancient Royal Family, under the reign of our last tyrants. In all probabi- lity, even our present Government is not sufficiently acquainted with all these enormities. When Marie Antoinette was conveyed into the Conciergerie, she was shut up in a room, called the Council Room, which is considered as the most unwholesome in the whole prison. On pretense of providing her with an attendant, a spy was sent to her, a fellow of a shocking mien, and dreadful voice; who besides this employment, was charged with the most dis- gusting and dirty work in the Conciergerie. This fellow's name was Barassin ; he was by trade a robber and assassin, and had been condemned to 14 years im- prisonment by the Criminal Tribunal. The jail- keeper, who wanted an additional dog ( a prison term), that knew the watch- word, had obtained leave for this Barassin to suller his punishment in that prison, instead of in a galley. Such was the honest person, who, as valet de chambre, attended on her who was Queen of France. Yet a short time be- fore her death, her attendant, the robber on the highway, was taken from her, and a sentry [ agens d'arme) placed in her room, by whom she was closely watched day and night, and who was not se- parated from her, even during her rest, on a hard bed, but by a very bad screen, ready to tumble in pieces. In this dreadful abode the offspring of Roman Emperour- had no other clothing but a coarse black gown, stockings full of holes, which she was daily obliged to mend, and no shoes. Such was the fate of Marie Antoinette, before whom once all Europe lay prostrate ; on whom all the honours that can be be- stowed on a mortal being were lavished, ind to whom all the treasures of the world were open ! " After the death of their mother, or after she had left the Temple, the children of Louis XVI. were entirely forsaken. They had no change of linen, and it is said, that an excess of uncleanliness engendered first the eruptions of the skin, and after- wards the sores which put a period to the existence of one of them. The following is a fact, attested by one of the Publick Functionaries of the ancient Commons of Paris, who was confined in the Lux- embourg Prison about a month or six weeks before the 9th of Thermidor— " All kinds of guards and attendance had been withdrawn from the children; they were left quite by themselves, each in a separate room, which no one was allowed to enter, not even to make their beds, or sweep away the dirt. Their dinners were conveyed to them through holes made in their rooms; they were called, in a savage tone, to receive them from the carrier, and to return the empty plates of the day before, " The boy lay amidst filth and dirt, like an abandoned animal, on a bed never touched, never made, for he had neither sense nor strength enough to do it himfelf. His sister, on the contrary, swept her room every day, cleaned it as well as she could, kept herself clean, and even took care of her toilette, as much as she was able to do in a horrid prison, where she was bereft even of the first necessaries. " This cruelty against unfortunate children, un- fortunate not only on account of the severe confine- ment they suffered, but still more so from the ut- most attention shown them before their imprison- ment, from the honours bestowed 01 them, and the profound respect with which they had been treated, is not the only one which has been committed against them 1— I am just going to relate another of the most peculiar kind, which belongs to the Commons ' — this master piece of democracy, which was to fix at Paris all the civil and political liberty, all the virtues, all the glory of exalted Rome— all the arts, and all the urbanity of polished Greece— after the retreat of the famous Simon, a cobler by trade, and by appointment the instructor of the infant son of Louis XVI. Two men, or rather two mastiffs of the Com- mons, watched day and night around the room of this child. At the fall of day he was ordered to bed, because they did not choose to allow him a light. A little time after, when he enjoyed his first deep, one of thefe hell- hounds afraid lest the devil, or the aristocrats, might carry him ofF through the Vault of the prison, cried out to him, in a dread- ful voice—" Capet, where art thou? Dost thou sleep?"—" Here I am," answered the poor infant, half asleep, and trembling in his whole body.—• " Come here, let me see thee." Quite naked, and sweating all over, the child ran to him, saying, " Here I am, what is the matter ?" " I wanted to see thee ; go lay down again." Two or three hours after, the other scoundrel went through the same manoeuvre, and the poor infant was obliged to obey." To the MUSICAL WORLD- AN elegant fine- toned FINGER ORGAN to be SOLd.

THURSDAY, July 2. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. DUSSELDORF, June n. , tHE misunderstanding between the Cabi- nets of Vienna and Berlin becomes daily more and more manifest. Count Clair- fait has just declared to General Moel- lendorff, that he will not respect the li- mits traced in the Treaty of Peace between France and Prussia, and that he will carry the war wherever circumstances may require. In the Pruffian army, they talk openly of an ap- proaching war between Prussia and Russia. It is even confidently said, that Sweden, Denmark, and the Porte, will unite with the former, so as effectually to, oppose the devouring ambition of the Court of Petersburgh, It is certain that Catherine has replied very coldly, and in a manner that Sufficiently " expresses her dis- content, to the notification made to her by Prussia of the Peace just concluded with the French. Paris, June 2{. The Churches destined for the Roman Catholick Service, are the following : viz. St. Thomas d'Aquin, St. Sulpice, St. Jaques du haut Pas, St. Etienne du Mont, the Cathedral, St. Medard, St. Roch, St. Eustache, St. Germain, St. Gervais, St. Philippe de Roule, St. Laurent, and St. Marguerite. On the 13th inst. the American vessel Pallas, bound from Altona to Lisbon, foundered off Dun- kirk. She was laden with corn, rice, floUr, biscuit, & c. The crew have been saved. From the NEW YORK DAILY ADVERTISER, May 22, Kingston, Jamaica, April 17. The conduct of' very many of the French in this town, having ex- cited serious apprehensions for the publick safety, a strong measure was deemed necessary; in consequence, the horse and foot Militia were mustered at a very early hour on Wednesday morning, for the purpose of searching the houses of suspected persons, se- curing whatever arms or ammunition might be found therein, and taking into custody every Frenchman without exception. To carry this into effect, the most judicious ar- rangements were made. With the co- operation of a party of the light- dragoons, every avenue of the town was surely guarded, and egress prevented; every company had its allotted district, and the search was begun and continued for several hours with equal spirit and fidelity. The result was the production of the following articles, which were deposited as mentioned : At the Barracks, 68 muskets, 33 fowling- pieces, 20 pistols, 40 swords and blades, a pot of combustibles, a few powder- horns, and a quantity of powder and balls. At the Ordnance Wharf, four carriage- guns one pounder, two musketoons, one King's musket, 23 common ditto, one dagger, and two swords. At the Guard- house, 29 muskets, three bayonets, 15 swords, one pistol, and some ammunition- Most of the fire- arms were loaded. At each of these places a Committee of Magistrates attended to examine the persons apprehended; the far greater part of whom found security for their good behaviour, and were, in the course of the day, dismissed. Some people of colour were ordered into confinement IRELAND, . - Cork, June 2;. Yesterday evening arrived his Majesty's ship Diana, Captain J. Faulkner, with the following Ships under his command, . viz. Stag, Captain York Lively, Lord Garlies. Seahorse Peyton from a five week's cruise saw no cruisers of any kind ; brought in with them a large ship from Vir- ginia to Bourdeanx, laden with zooo sacks of flour and a parcel of corn, which makes the third Ame- rican vessel laden with provisions for France sent in by them this cruise ; these Frigates have been on this station, under Admiral Kingsmill, 118 days, out of which they have been 100 days at sea, and only 18 Days in Port.

At half past twelve the King came in his Post- chaise to St. James's. Palace, where his Royal Highness the Duke of york had an audience. The Levee began at half past one o'clock, and was over before three. Earl Howe was at the Levee for the first time since his illness; as were the Marquis of Blandford, Lord Cadogan, and Lord Amherst, for the first time this season. Addresses were presented by his Grace the Duke of Leeds from Hull, and by thc Earl cf Lonsdale from the County of Cumberland. General Fox kissed his Majesty's hand on being promoted to be Colonel of the 10th Regiment of Foot, late Sir R. M. Keith's, and General Pennington, on his promotion to succeed General Fox. After the Levee, a Chapter of the Most Hon. Order of the Bath was held in the King's Closet, when his Majesty was pleased to invest Sir J. Banks, President of the Royal Society, with the Red Rib- bon, vacant by the' death of the late Sir R. M. Keith. The Knights present were, Lord Amherst, Sir R. Payne, Sir W. Gordon, Lord Malmesbury, Sir G. Howard, Sir W. Fawcett, and Sir G. Yonge. There was no Council. Mr. Pitt, the Duke of Portland, Marquis Cornwallis, Earl Spencer, Lord Grenville, and the Secretary at War,' had audiences on business with the King in the CloSet, and at a quarter past give o'clock his Majesty set off for Kew to dine with the Queen and Princesses. Earl Spencer laid before the King some Despatches received the same day at two o'clock from Lord Bridport, and also from Sir W. S. Smith; the conr tents, however, are not, we understand, very inte- resting, being chiefly Duplicates or Returns, Yesterday arrived in Mail, from the Leeward Islands, brought to Falmouth; by the Grantham Packet. She sailed about the 31st of May. By the Norfolk ( Virginia) Herald of the 20th of May, there is advice, that the 44 gun frigate, and tbe two ships which escaped from the Thetis and Hussar Frigates, came to anchor in Hampton Roads on the 18th, and that Commodore Maheux, in La. Normand, was killed in the engagement. The Duke of Portland sent on Sunday to the Commander in Chief,' to acquaint him that the as- sistance of the Military might be wanted on the fol- lowing day; in consequence of which .. the Guards were ordered to hold themselves in readiness; and the Light Horse Voluntiers, at the request of the Duke of Portland, paraded in their respective Riding Houses. These troops were under arms till twelve at night on Monday, but fortunately there was no occasion to call them out. It is good policy certainly not to call out the Military but upon urgent and actual occasions, though it is equally good policy to be prepared for every event. Mr. Fox's most glorious fabrick ever raised by human ingenuity, has passed off like a shadow, and is reprobated by the very men who were accessary to its erection. The Right Hon. Henry Dundas, arrived at his seat, Melville Castle, in Scotland, on Thursday . last. Monday a Court Martial was held on board his Majesty's Ship Royal William, at Spithead, on Capt. Piercey, for the loss of the Hound Sloop of War, which was taken by two French Frigates' on his passage from the West Indies ; the Captain was honourably acquitted. The Hon. Artillery Company, at a General Court, have resolved that the new London Militia cannot be accommodated with the Artillery- Ground to be put in training and to learn their exercise. The new London Militia Uniform is at last set- tled. Sir Watkin Lewes has chosen. scarlet turned up with blue. Sir James Saunderson's regiment has the uniform of scarlet and orange. Six hundred men are already raised for the Lon- don Militia, and next week they are to be put into training, on a spot near Dog- House Bar. The Phoebe, Andrews, from Jamaica to Liver- pool, is taken and carried into Charleston. The Noah's Ark, , from New Orleans to Philadelphia, is lost on the Martyrs. A vessel sunk 011 Friday morning off Sheppy Point. She appears to have been a Swede, with 800 quarters of Wheat on board for the Port of London. Three of the crew reached the land, but two of them died foon after, of cold and fatigue ; the rest are supposed to have perished, as a boy, who had got upon the shrouds, was heard to call for assistance, but the wind was so strong no boat could go from shore. At Shipston- upon- Stour Fair, On Monday se'n- night the show of fat beasts was small, and went off at high prices. The number of capital sheep was not so great as usual, in consequence of the severity of the winter, and the numbers that have been killed before the usual time. They were sold very high. A few small Lots reached Five Guineas per head. Some weeks since, information was given to the Secretary of State by the Government Agents at Dover, of an Italian Gentleman of the name of Cantua, being in that town, whose conduct induced Strong suspicions of his being a Spy ; in consequence of which, Ross the Messenger was sent down to apprehend him.— On announcing to Mr. Cantua his business, he immediately put him in possession of his papers, & c. and with cheerfulness accompanied him to town, observing, that he was master of his own time;, that he intended returning to the Continent, but that he should not be inconvenienced by delaying his journey. During his examination and detention in town, his conduct was such as entirely to dissipate the sus- picions which had been entertained of him, and he was discharged, with some remuneration for his loss of time, & c. On Saturday se'nnight he proceeded to Yarmouth, there to embark for Cruxhaven. His behaviour at the Inn, on Saturday night, induced observation, and when he went out to walk on Sun- day morning, he was watched to the Denes, where he suddenly disappeared ; he was discovered in a few minutes; but — horrid to relate!— he had nearly severed his head from his body, and was quite dead. The fatal instrument lay by him. In his pockets were found cash and bills to the amount of 200I. The Coroner held an Inquest 011 the body, and found a verdict— Lunacy; and on Tuesday evening his remains were interred in the Church. BRECKNOCK CIRCUIT. The Hon.

PARLIAMENTARY CHARACTERS. NUMBER IX, EARL of WESTMORLAND. THE present Earl of Westmorland, whose an- cestors have enjoyed the title since the year 1624, is the tenth Earl of Westmorland, and was born the 1st of January) 1759. His Lordship suc- ceeded to that honour in 1774, and married, the 20th of May, 1782, Miss CHILD, only daughter of Robert Child, Esq. the Banker ; by which Lady, who died in Ireland, he had several children, — rl he circumstances attending this marriage are in almost every body's recollection. His Lordship seemed at a very early period to have turned his attention to the study of Politicks, his knowledge of which much distinguished his entre into publick life, and acquired him no common re- putation in his defense of Ministry ; whose measures he supported on many great, and important occasions, in the House of Lords, with abilities and eloquence, that soon raised his character to a height equal to the sanguine expectations of his friends. The talents of the Noble Lord could not fail calling him forth into the most active services of his Country ; and accordingly in the year 1787, he was appointed joint Postmaster- General with Lord Walsingham : and in the year 1789, a much more honourable and important office was conferred upon him ; being made Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, upon the Marquis of Buckingham's quitting the govern- ment of that Kingdom. Whoever considers but for a moment, the relative situation of that Country to Great- Britain, and how much depends upon a mutual intercourse of friend- ship, will readily see the necessity of exercising great prudence, and wisdom, in the choice of a Vice Roy. The independence, temper, and penetration of the Earl of Westmorland, peculiarly recommended him to this important task ; nor was it long before his Lordship justified the high opinion entertained of him. Though assuming the reins of Government at a very arduous, and critical period, the salutary measures pursued by him, tended to conciliate the affections of the. People, to fix on a firm and solid basis, their dearest interests, and to secure the bles- sings of peace and harmony. Without meaning in the least to detract from the merits of others, no one, perhaps, ever went through the viceroyship with a greater degree of reputation. Though objects of the highest concern and tendency pressed upon his Lordship, the utmost tranquillity was happily preserved; and, owing to his Lordship's address, he had the satisaction of leaving the sister Kingdom, cn his quitting the Lord Lieutenancy, perfectly contented, and loud in its approbation of the conduct of Administratioh, His popularity in Ireland was followed on his return to England with the approbation of his Sove- reign ; his Lordship having been since honoured with . the dignified station of Master of the Horse to the King. His Lordship is also a Knight of the Garter,, and Grand Master of the order of Saint Patrick. His political behaviour has always been character- ised by the most steady, active, and uniform support of the Constitution, and the present Ministry. When persons of illustrious birth, independent principles, and powerful talents, with a strict regard to the moral duties of a private life, thus stand forth in the defense of Administration, their enemies must be compelled to receive this attachment, as the most honourable testimony of rectitude of conduct. As a Publick Speaker his Lordship has much to recommend him. To all the advantages of a hand- some and graceful deportment, he unites a fluency of speech, the most elegant diction, and an unem- barrassed manner. A clear perception of the question, and a close reasoning upon the the principles ot it, never fail to distinguish him. His arguments are always founded in fact, and supported on the basis of reason ; while a modesty pervades the whole, that - — ~.. i< « mx uis consequence, and to raise him in the estimation of the house, where he is always heard with the most respectful attention. Of this, a recent proof was given by his Lord- ship in his late speech in the House of Lords, on tbe affairs of Ireland ; in which he expressed sentiments much to his own honour, and highly to the credit of Administration.

St. James's Chronicle. LONDON. THURsDAy. July 2. Two Mails out of the three, due from Ham- burgh, arrived this morning; as also two from Italy. It does not appear that the campaign is yet opened by either party in that country, or upon the Rhine. Accounts from Wesel of the 17th ult. say, the French seem to be making dispositions to pass the Rhine at Dusseldorf ; but there is every reason to believe that their object is solely to hasten the nego- ciations for peace. Yesterday arrived Mr. East, a King's Messenger, with despatches from Corsica ; and Mr. Curviser, with despatches from Vienna. Two Officers arrived at- the same time from the Head- quarters of the British army. According to a letter from Ratisbon of the ijth ult. the HANOVERIAN Minister at Ratisbon declared on the 12th Ult. to the Diet, in the name of his BRITANNICK Majesty, as Elector of Hanover, that, for the purpose of obtaining a general peace for the Empire, it would be most proper and adviseable to request his IMPERIAL MAJESTY to adopt the neces- sary measures for entering into negociations with France ; but to leave the time and mode of nego- ciating, as well as the place where the negociations were to be carried on, entirely to his IMPERIAL MAJESTY'S wisdom and choice. A letter from Frankfort of the 16th ult. states, that at that time all remained quiet in the environs of Mentz ; but as the French army before that for- tress had been considerably re- enforced since the sur- render of Luxembourg, and on the izth inst. some Republican engineers had risen in a balloon to re- connoitre the fortifications of Mentz, and the posi- tion of the Imperial troops, it was generally sup- posed that the French were on the point of com- mencing the siege of that fortress with the utmost ' vigour. The same letter adds, that the Prince of HOHENLOHE has resigned the command in Chief of the Prussian army, which still remains in the vicinity of Franckfort, and is succeeded by General KALK- REUTH, According to a letter from Ratisbon, of the 12th ult. his Imperial Majesty has declined negociating a Peace between the German Empire and France, jointly with the King of Prussia. A letter from Copenhagen, of the 16th nit. con- tains the intelligence, that on the 10th a Swedish squadron, consisting of eight line of battle ships and four frigates, and commanded by Count Wacht- meister, cast anchor in the road of Copenhagen ; and that oil the 16th in the morning, the King of Sweden and his uncle, the Duke Regent, arrived in that town. According to a letter from Basle of the 10th ult. all negociations for peace are at a stand in that town. The British Charge d'Affaires, Mr. WICKHAM, had a conference with the Prince of CONDE at MUhl- hausen ; and on his way thither passed through Basle, but remained there only a few hours. The Grantham Packet arrived at Falmouth the 2Sth ultimo from the Leeward Islands. On the 9th of June, she saw, in Lat. 34. 20. Long 61.30, a large fleet of vessels, 198 Merchantmen, all under sail tor England, under convoy of his Majesty's ship Theseus, Captain Calder ; Assurance, of 44 guns ; Quebeck frigate, and Nautilus sloop; so that this valuable fleet may be daily expected. She also brings an account, that while lying at St. Kitt's, a canoe from St. Eustatia, with five black men, was taken and brought in by an armed fishing boat. They were, immediately on their landing, taken up, put into- Prison, and strongly guarded— One of them, who was their Chief, having a Com- mission in his pocket from VICTOR HUCUES, Com- mander in Chief of all the French troops in the West Indies, was known by the President, and several other Gentlemen, to be a native of that Island, and formerly a servant to General MATTHEWS at Gre- nada. It is supposed they were coming up to en- deavour, if possible, to seduce the minds of the Negroes, and instigate them to revolt. The inhabitants at St. Kitt's were all under arms, fearing an attack being made on that Island. Extract of a letter from Norwich, " The present Lords of the Admiralty have not only taken every precaution to protect our trade at sea, but have ordered all the rivers and inlets on the coast, North of the mouth of the Thames, to be surveyed; to inform themselves what Marine might be employed in them or stationed near them, for internal defense, if occasion requires ; and to the astonishment of the inhabitants of Norwich, a vessel of forty tons, fitted to carry an 18- pounder in the prow, and other cannon, if required, constructed after Captain Schank's plan, with sliding keels, got up a few days since, with ease, to the walls of this City." Upon the subject of the Expedition under Sir JOHN WARREN, Government preserves a laudable secresy. Accounts have been more than once received, the purport of which however has not been revealed to any one. The most commendable feature, in the whole of the spirited and judicious conduct of the present BOARD of ADMIRALTY, is the Secresy observed, as to the destination of the various fleets and squadrons of British ships, now covering the seas. - The efFect and purport of their instructions are discovered only by the success which attends the exertions of our gallant Officers and Men.— This is raising the glory of BRITAIN on her own element ; and is the true way to render her dreaded by her foes, and adored by her friends. Let the following account, by a contemporary writer, of the situation of the French peasantry, under the reign of Henry the Fourth, be contrasted with their present state ; and let us hear no more, that peace, contentment, and prosperity, can be found only in Republicks. " The idea of those times," says the Abbe de Maroilles, " still gives me pleasure ; it appears to me that the country was more fertile than it is now— the cattle remained safe in the fields, and the husbandmen in perfect security ploughed up the furrows, to put in the grain, which the tax- gatherers and the soldiers had not then begup to ravage. Tfee peasant had then his little cottage, his neat furniture, and slept quietly in his own bed. After the harvest, they fixed upon some day to meet together and have a little regale, to which even their masters Were invited, who pleased thsm very much when they condescended to partake of it. No one then complained of the excess of the imposts; every one paid his little tax with chear- fulness, and I do not remember ever to have heard it said that in any march soldiers had ever pillaged a single village, much less desolated whole provinces." The evils of the French Revolution cannot be estimated by us from a mere view of present calamity. War, Famine, Murther, and the other evils which affeCt France may be said to be only temporary, when compared with the shock given to morality all over the world. Grenada and St. Vincent's will remain in history a melancholy proof of the excess to which the wickedness of the Re- volutionists has been carried, and the wide extent which it reached. It seems two of the persons lately tried at the Old- Bailey for High Treason, and who had entered into a very close and warm intimacy, for the good of their Country, have lately fallen out, on political topicks.— The Grammarian thought that the Lecturer was a little too violent. The Lecturer has accord- ingly been banished, in high dudgeon, from the Sunday dinners of the Grammarian. Higginbotham and West, two Crimps, were on Tuesday convicted of an assault on James Noles, a journeyman baker, and detaining him several days, under pretense of his being enlisted; and compelling him to pay iol. to regain his liberty, and 2 ® s. smart- money.— LORD KENYON said the Court would certainly inflict a most exemplary punishment, when the Defendants should be brought up to receive judgement next Term. In the foolish Address to the King, published in the name of the London Corresponding Society, the Addressers not barely admit, but insist, on the Con- stitutional Right of the King to model Parliament as he pleases— A piece of absurdity which could not have been expected, even from the ignorance of Coblers, and Quack- Medicine venders. The following definition of perfect Laws seems to have been framed by Dr. FERGUSON, with a pro- phetick intention of excluding the pretensions of France to legislative excellence—" The most perfect laws relating to the Constitution are such as confer on the Magistrate power to restrain crimes and to defend the community ; but under limitations suf- ficient to prevent the abuse of this power." As a proof of the extraordinary resources of the monied people in the city, upwards of 3,200,000!. were paid into the Bank, on Tuesday last, out of the 4,600,0001. Imperial Loan, in order to take advantage of the discount allowed on paying up the money in full. Mr. DUNDAS, it now appears, has gone to Scot- land, chiefly to arrange the affairs of Miss SCOTT, his Ward, previous to her marriage with the Marquis of TITCHFIELD. A more extensive importation of Corn is one of those good consequences which we may expect to result from our late victories by sea. The Channel is not only rendered safe to our own ports, but we can possess ourselves of the provision destined to supply our starving enemies. Nothing can so effectually advance the cause of Peace as that which tends to bring to a sense of justice those, who having learnt to contemn its claims in the moment of prosperity, are only to be awakened to its dictates by necessity and force. In addition to the foreign wheat lately imported, a further importation of 120,000 quarters is daily expected from Dantzick ; a message to that effect having been, a few days ago, sent from the Council of Trade, to Lord Sheffield, as Vice- President of the Board of Agriculture. The consumption of Great- Britain is computed to be one hundred and eighty thousand quarters weekly. The present high price of Wheat has induced two noble Lords in the North Riding of Yorklhire to give orders to such of their Tenants, as have more of that Grain by them than sufficient for their own family use, to sell to such as are in want in their neighbourhood. BREAD.— Although the price of the Quartern Loaf of household Bread, which is made of Wheat, of the same quality as the sort called wheaten bread, with the further advantage of being much more nu- tritious, is only 7| d. the Publick still continue to use the wheaten bread, now advanced to sold. the quartern loaf, of the same weight. If any danger of a further scarcity should be apprehended, a pro- hibition of wheaten bread ( so called) would be at- tended with the best consequences; as any given quantity of wheat would make one fourth more of the household sort— A saving of one fourth of the consumption in London and its environs would have a speedy effect in lowering the price of that neces- sary commodity. In consequence of an information laid against a Baker, ( his name is industrioufly concealed,) in Lower Sloane- street, Chelsea, Justice Bond went there on Saturday morning last, and made a seisure of 14 quarters loaves, and 27 two- penny loaves, short of their proper weight 83 ounces ; the full penalty of which is js. per ounce ; but on account of its being his first offense, the Magistrate, ( we think with too much lenity,) mitigated it to is. per ounce, amounting to 4I. 8s.; which, together with the light bread, was distributed among the peor in the neighbourhood of Sloane- street, in consideration of their having been the greatest sufferers, Extract of a letter from Dublin, June 27. " Thursday Patrick Fay was brought up to the Court of King's Bench from the New Prison, by the High Sheriffs of this City, pursuant to the Order of the Court on Tuesday last. Counsel for Fay, prayed that he might be discharged pursuant to the Habeas Corpus Act, he not having been tryed or indicted within two Terms from his Commit- ment, On the part of the Crown the Attorney- General opposed the motion, and desired that he might be now remanded by the Court, he being charged as a felon, capitally convicted at a Session held at the Tholsel of the City of Dublin, in the month of September, 1788, of feloniously uttering a forged Receipt ; to prove, which he produced the ' information sworn in Court by Mr. John Allen, one of the Town- Clerks, which was read in Court. " The Counsel on the part of the Prisoner ob- jected that the Court would not take the facts stated in Mr. Allen's information as regularly proved, as the record of that fact ought; to be before the Court, and that of course the Prisoner was entitled to his discharge. " The Solicitor- General for the Crown quoted several cases where, even after acquittal for returning from transportation, the party had been remitted to the old sentence. " The Court were unanimous in refusing the motion made by Fay's Counsel; and ordered him to stand committed to the custody of the Sheriffs of the City of Dublin, under the conviction and sentence so passed upon him at the Tholsel Court, until fur- ther orders." Mr. and Mrs. Mackervoy the unfortunate old cou. ple who were murthered a few nights since at Kew, lived on the interest of a sum of money in the funds, 011 which they had just received the Dividend prior to their death : Little, the person who- murthered them, is supposed to have known this circumstance. About three years and a half ago, a workman be- longing to the Observatory in Kew- Gardens, was found one morning dead in that building, and from the situation he was discovered in, and a fracture in his skull, it was believed that in opening a window a weight had fallen en his head, and caused his death. Little, who had the care of the Observa- tory, at this time, is now suspected of having been his executioner. Some years ago his Majesty paid Little's debts, to the amount of near 170I. which generous deed prevented his being taken to prison; and which originated from the partiality of his Majesty to the man, whose character was artfully vieled with hypocrisy. Bath, July 1. The Bishop of Glocester has in- stituted the Rev. Richard John Hay, to the Rectory of Yate and Chipping Sodbury,, upon his own pre- sentation, vacant by the death of the Rev. Thomas Tournay, A. M. A few days since died at Wells, the Lady of the Hon. Francis Seymour, son of the Hon. and Rev. Lord Francis Seymour, Dean of Wells. It is now the opinion of all whose situations afford them the best opportunities of judging, that the, little wheat remaining on hand cannot be made to hold out till harvest, if any other than one sort of flour, namely, that which is cleansed of the husk or bran, only be used.— The Rich as well as the poor, ought to conform to this regulation, and the idea is so strongly impressed on the minds of Lord Sheffield and Lord Gage, that they feel the necessity of its adoption, and have laudably set the example, by prohibiting in their families, the life of any other sort of flour than that above- mentioned, on all op- casions whatever. Worcester, June 26. On Thursday a body of colliers entered Mitcheldeane, and after alarming the town, breaking a few windows, and demanding liquors, they proceeded to Mr. Price's mill, where several Gentlemen expostulated with them, and Mr. P. offered to supply them with wheat at 8s. per bushel, provided they would be peaceable ; but their object was revenge from a report having been ma- liciously circulated that he exported or rather smug- gled corn to France; they therefore wantonly de- stroyed the mill, and wasted that which was offered to them for their relief. From thence they vifited a mill at Blakeney, and did considerable damage, and declared their intention of proceeding to Ross and Monmouth ; but by the timely arrival of the Militia, aided by the Hereford Yeomanry Cavalry, they were dispersed.
