VOL. LXIV. THE Ms. 3317 EDINBURGH ADVERTISER. From FRIDAY OCTOBER 9, to TUESDAY OCTOBER 13, 1795.- SATURDAY's POST. From the LONDON - PAPERS, Oct. 7. LONDON. HE accounts received from the seat of war in Germany is, that the grand stand intended to be made against the French by the Combined Aus- trian armies will be in defence of the hereditary dominions of his Im- perial Majesty. Where it will be' really made, we cannot say certain it is,, not the least shew of resistance has yet been exhibited, though seve- ral posts have been successively evacuated, which were j deemed impregnable. The Gazette of Hanau, of the of this month; announces, that Mentz and Casel are both invested . by the French. Whatever may be the strength of Mentz, to which few places in Europe can be compar- ed, we have no reason to suppose, that after the ordi- nary forms of summons, some threats, and a little ap- pearance of bombardment, it will not surrender to the French like Manheim. It will be difficult to conjec- ture what will be the end of all these scenes, which one would be tempted to call a Military Comedy, - if it was not in its nature and probable consequences, a very serious Tragedy. Extension of French Territory.—" We thought," says the Courier Universal, published at Paris, " that we stood more in need of peace, than of an accession of territory, which must place it at a greater distance. It appears evident, that all the proceeds of the Church Estates, which we are going to seize in Belgium, will fall much short of the enormous expence caused by one or two more campaigns; and it cannot make up for the ever increasing depreciation of Assignats, which is the natural consequence. The decree in question incorpo rates . with France, Maritime Flanders, Austrian Hainault, the Duchy of Brabant, the County of Na- mur, the Country of Liege, Limbourg, Maestricht; in short, all the Austrian dominions on the left banks of the Rhine, as well as the whole extent of country which the Convention has appropriated to France by the treaty with the Batavian Republic. This decree exposes as to a long continuation of the war, and after- wards to a peace, on which we cannot rely; as it is the interest of Europe to break it the first opportunity which offers for despoiling us of such important con- quests." The spirit of division yet runs very high in Holland; many provinces have seriously protested against the proceedings of the Clubs, which threaten an universal confusion, equal to that which for so great a length of time deluged France with blood. The new race of patriots, as they are called, are all Jacobins ; most of them indeed such as bore conspicuous posts in the Robespierrian tragedy at Paris. PROSCRIPTION of JACOBINISM in SWEDEN. A Royal Rescript, is just published, stating, that melancholy experience has proved that there are per- sons in Swedens who, under the appearance of what they term enlightening the people, and the doing away of prejudices, are insidiously endeavouring to disseminate such notions as can have no other tendency than to con- fuse every idea of the general duties towards God, the King, and the subjeCt. By means like these, one of the most ancient thrones in Europe has been overthrown, and a great and famous nation subjeCted to all the insatia ble plagues of tyranny and arbitrary proceedings of the merit hateful kind ; where a contempt of religion has so far deluded and hardened the inhabitants of a. happy country; as to draw down the most signal punish- ments of the Almighty upon the traitorous heads of the principal performers.. That it is In vain to hope for the amendment or a radical conviction of these bad men, too well known under the hateful name of Ja- cobins, ever ready to avail themselves of every oppor- tunity of sacrificing the temporal and everlasting hap- piness of their fellow citizens, in every country where' their principles are disseminated. The King is there- fore firmly resolved to assert the cause of religion, his own rights, and the liberties and privileges of his sub jeCts, to the last drop of his blood, and never to per mit that the people should be led away by false. doCtrines and delusive ideas," ' ' - A letter from an Officer on board the Agamemnon, Captain Nelson dated Leghorn, 21st of August 1795, says, A few nights ago we went on an expedition to cut out nine sail from under the French batteries. We arrived off the port about half past two o'clock in the morning, with nine boats manned and armed. After muffling the oars, and reconnoitring their situation, we rowed silently in a close line a- breast. when, within a cable's length, the dogs on board gave the alarm, and there was not a moment to lose. Dash was the word, and we were on board just as they were coming on deck, and forced them down below. Such as made resistance, we dispatched ; and under a very heavy fire of musketry and great guns from shore, we cut their cables and towed eight of them triumphantly to sea.— At break of day the sternmost was full four miles from the enemy's guns, but the vessels entirely our own. We began to bend their sails with the greatest alertness, as they had taken the precaution of unbending and link- ing their yards; but we were much disappointed by the vessels that were to cover our retreat being becalmed in the offing, and could be of no- assistance to us, we hav- ing only row boats. The enemy now began to recover their panic; and with numbers of boats towed and row- ed out several large gun- boats, each having two long 24 pounders in their bow. They kept up a heavy fire upon us for two hours ; we were then approaching our ships fast. We arrived with our prizes in Vado Bay, after an absence of 30 hours, 18 of which the men had been pulling hard at their oars. Had we been one mi nute later in boarding we should have had warm work, as, besides the great guns, they were well stocked with blunderbusses and muskets. We escaped astonishingly with the prizes, as every shot went through the sails or amongst the boats. We had not a man killed or wounded. We received the thanks of the Commo- dore, and the squadron unanimously gave the whole of the prizes to the boats." Of the late Loan, though amounting to Twenty- two Millions, there is not now One Million repaid; whilst cash in general is so uncommonly plentiful ( particularly for this time of the year), that bills of any validity are readily discounted at the Bankers at the rate of 4 per cent. This very great influx of money, and in war time, is rather uncommon,; but such are the happy effects of the French commerce being almost entirely annihilated that all the articles of the West India markets, by which the French supplied Germany and other countries, are MONDAY'S POST. From the LONDON PAPERS, 0CT. 9, PLYMOUTH DOCK, Oct. 6. tHE Russel, Capt. Larcom, has been obliged to put intO this port in a disabled state- On Thursday last a sudden gale came on with tremendous thunder, lightning and hail, which lasted very fortunately, but a short time. A flash of lightning struck the masts of the Russel, and rendered the main and mizen- masts use- less; killed the First Lieutenant, a very worthy man, as he was sitting at dinner, and three seamen, and wound- ed seven others. The Minotaur received some da- mage in her top- masts ; but of too little consequence to quit her station. MARGATE, Oct. 1. This afternoon we had a remarkable storm of thun- der and lightning, which passed over the town; the lightning was very vivid, forked, and frequent, and the thunder was tremenduously loud. We do not hear of any serious damage being done by it, though a man, carrying a basket of fowls up Hooper's Hill, two of them were struck dead, but the man escaped un- hurt; also a new wall of considerable length, was thrown down by it, and it is supposed that the church clock received an electrical shock, as some pins were drove out of it, which liberating the striking part, it struck upwards of an hundred strokes between eleven and twelve at night, to the great amazement of some of our timorous old women. L O N D O N. The Paris Papers from the 1st to the 5th instant, in- clusive, which we received by express this morning, contain news of considerable importance. Notwithstanding the decree of the Convention against the Presidents and Secretaries of the Primary Assemblies of Paris, those Assemblies continued in a state of per- manence, and persevered in their deliberations upon the conduct of the Convention. ' • On the 1sr inst. one of the Sessions determined, that in case of violence, exercised against any citizen for deliberating in the Primary Assemblies, the generale should immediately be beat, the citizens should take up arms, the Electoral Assembly should meet, and" the arm- - ed force be required to attend and obey the Assembly. In consequence of these events, the Committee of Public Safety resolved to have recourse to severe mea- now supplied by our English merchants. Three Lieutenant- Colonels have been superseded, for reporting themselves not well enough to embark with the regiments for the west Indies. A heavy additional duty on Tobacco, it is said is to form one of the Minister's taxes for the next year. By accounts received from New York, dated the 26th of August, we learn, that they have had a most violent storm of wind in Virginia, on the 2d of that month, which very much injured the crops of corn and tobacco ; and on the 14th they had another, which, for violence, has not had its equal in the memory of man ; it is imagined that one half the corn and tobacco is totally destroyed, and the damage otherwise is im- mense. Several French prisoners have been suffered to leave this country, on condition of sending an English prisoner back in exchange.. Directions were given them to find the particular person, whom they were to liberate ; but, alas many of them never thought of their engagement! Non Punica sed Gallica fides One Irishman in Bresjt prison offered to enlist in the French service. On hearing this, his companions in captivity flogged him in such a manner, that they left him little power to enlist in any service. The Dutch haVe again resorted to a stratagem they praCtised very successfully last war. Having captured two large fishing smacks belonging to Harwich, they have fitted them out as privateers, at Flushing, for the purpose of cruizing in the North Sea,' to capture the smacks, which may, by their appearance, suppose them engaged in fishing. One was a lute stern, the other a square one.- Lieut. Forbes, of the Royal Regiment of Artillery, having, as he thought, discovered some improvements on the mortar, caused one to. be made, but as, after several trials, it was not found to answer, the Board refused to pay for it, wherefore he had the following motto, ergraved upon it;-— Johannes Forbes, Aberdoniensis, Made this mortar at his own expences sures. On the morning of the 3d inst. it was proposed and decreed that such of the Primary Assemblies of Paris as had completed their elections should be com- manded to separate immediately., All the arrests of those SeCtions were annulled, and . the armed force was ordered not to obey them. The Convention, at the same time, apprehensive that this decree might produce disturbances in Paris, resolved that its sitting should be permanent. The decree was immediately proclaimed in Paris.— The officers who proclaimed it were insulted, hissed, hooted, and forced to retire without concluding the reading of the decree. In the evening, the Committee of Public Safety or- dered the armed force to march to the place of meet- ing of the Electors of the Primary Assemblies of the Theatre Francais, who had refused to obey the law passed in the morning. Legendre headed the armed force : but the Electors had previously to his arrival, dispersed. In the mean time, strong patroles paraded the streets. - ' •, In the morning of the 4th, the Convention were sur- rounded by battalions of the inhabitants of the Faux- bourgs, and the Committees of Public and General Safety were guarded by the Military, which rendered the Primary Assemblies very quiet. On' the 3d of OCtober, there was a grand National fete to commemorate the forty- two Members of the Convention who fell ViCtims to DecemvirA Tyranny. The President pronounced the oration, in which he scattered sufficient- flowers of oratory on the tombs of Vergniaux, Brissot, Guadet, & c. the Guillotined De- puties. " Could there be any thing more striking," says one - of the Paris papers, " than to see the Mountain, which sent 42 deputies to the scaffold seek to bury the trans- action in oblivion by applauding the funeral oration of those whom they themselves assassinated . Riots have taken place in several parts of France, At Verneuil, ten of the insurgents were killed, and thirty taken prisoners. ^ By THE RIghT HON.

" An Extraordinary and Corroborating Instance of " the Virtue of - SPILSBURY's ANTISCORBUTIC DROPS. ISAAC CROFTS, of Folkingham, in the county of Lin- coln, slater, deposed, that for seven years he had been af- flicted with a Scorbutic habit, which broke out in his left leg just above the ancle bone, so that he could not stand to work at his business. Thus circumstanced, he was persuaded by a Gentleman for whom he worked, to purchase some of SPILS- BURY'S Antiscorbutic Drops of Messrs. Ward & Son ; and by persevering in the use of this Medicine his cure was speedily effected. After taking the first bottle his leg became conside- rably easier, and he gradually improved in health, rest, spirits and appetite. This happy change in him he considers as a- mazing, from his not receiving the least benefit, from any o- ther preparation and that others may have the confidence which he had in this invaluable medicine, he publishes his un- expected but happy delivery from affliction ISAAC CROFTS.

' An express arrived this morning from Calais, with the following short note, and a Paris paper of the 6th instant ; CALAIS, oct. 8. " We have just received intelligence of the gates of Paris being shut — Civil War rages within its walls— the Sections and the Troops are fighting. The ac- counts we receive are alarming— a great number on both sides have lost their lives ; the result we look for with the most anxious suspence." DOVER, Oct. 9. " This morning arrived the Two Sisters, Captain Schousted, from Calais, with some British soldiers, and other passengers. This vessel confirms the account of troops having marched to Paris. It likewise brings an account of the gates of Paris being shut, and of hostili- ties having actually commenced between the Parisians and the Conventional troops.". The Courier francais, published at Paris on the 5th, has the following article " Every thing has the appearance of war. Fresh troops are entering every instant. The Narional Con- vention is surrounded by bayonets and cannon. The disarmed men have received arms. The Sections are permanent. The Electors of several sections met yes- terday at the Theatre Fransais— their Sitting was pro- longed to midnight. At two in the morning, the Re- preventatives charged , with the armed force put them selves at the head of two thousand men, to execute the decree ordering the closing of the Electoral Bodies : no person was to be found. They took, the bell of the President and some papers. The guard, and the pro clamation of the Convention, were received with gene- ral hootings." The Gazette Universelle contains an article to the following purport: a Every thing announces a conspiracy against Li- berty Assemblies are held, in the night; laws are made in the night; military dispositions are made in the night; the day comes not to dispel these plots of dark- ness ! Is there not need of conspiracies to preserve an authority which they would render legitimate ? The Authority has lost the, confidence of the People, be- cause it passes only penal laws. Yesterday evening the proclamation made by the Administrators of Seine was accompanied with the hootings and hissings of the po- pulace from all quarters of Paris., A tradesman said in the Session of the Theatre Francais, that that procla- mation had the appearance of the burial of the Conven- tion. The escort of dragoons which accompanied the - Administrators was Well received by the peoples who cried from all quarters, " vive les dragons ! a bas les deux tiers!"--" Live the dragoons ! Down with the two- thirds " " While the people manifested their indignation against an expiring authority, the Electors whose busi- ness it is so chuse the new Legislators of France, assem- bled in great numbers in the hall of the Theatre Fran- cais ; they were not numerous enough to form them- selves into an Assembly ; but they were witnesses of the energy which the Primary Assembly displayed upon this occasion, who had assigned them a place in the hall of their sittings : they remained here till late in the night; they waited for the Electors of the other Sections which had adhered to the resolution of the - Section of Lepelletier: they observed amongst them M. Marelet, whose great age, talents, and knowledge, render him so respectable. At nine at night, the Pri- mary Assembly of the Theatre Francais gave up the place of their deliberations to the Electors, and retired into the boxes, to encourage them by their presence. " At two in the morning, when all the Electors had departed, Legendre arrived with 500 men and four pieces of cannon. General Miranda, who command- ed this expedition, took away the bell. At 8 olclock this morning all was quiet. " This day a great number of Terrorists have been armed by order of the Government, and stationed on the Terrace of the Thuilleries.— Most of the Sections have continued their sitting." Another account says, " An Insurrection of some of the Sections against the Convention has taken place. In consequence of the decree of the Convention for dissolving the Primary Assemblies by force, if necessary, the Section Lepelletier, on the morning of the 5th, beat the Generale and flew to arms. Two other Sections did the same. The Committee of Public Safety imme diately sent troops to surround the Section Lepelletier.. This was effected, but the General who commanded the troops having received an assurance from the inha- bitants of the Section, that they were only arming in their defence, thought proper to retire. " The Section immediately secured and fortified some strong posts, and made every preparation for a formidable resistance. The Government ordered troops to be marched a second time, and a Contest ensued, in which many fell on both sides. The firing of cannon against the Section commenced at noon on the. 5th, and was not terminated at half past nine at night, when the Paris Paper just received was put to the press. " The Convention sat all night on the 4th, and the whole of the jth inst. guarded by a large detachment of military with cannon. Strong patroles paraded all the streets and squares, and every preparation was making by the Convention, and by the revolted Sec- tions, both for attack and defence. " The Section Lepelletier was in hopes of receiving succour; the other Sections having assured them, that they would send assistance to them during the night of the 5th. The following proceedings of the Convention on the 5th, and the Paris articles which are translated literally from the Paris paper ( le Censeur des Journeaux) of the 6th, will shew, that the insurrection is of an alarming na- ture, and that the Government suspect that the resist ance of the revolted Sections will be extremely obsti- nate. The inhabitants of the suburbs St. Antoine and St. Marceau, and the troops, appear to be firmly at tached to the Convention." NATIONAL CONVENTION. 13th Vendemiaire, October j. The sitting of last night was, as may be easily con jectured, stormy and full of alarm, 1 The determinations, in a mass, were as incoherent as the individual resolutions were ardent. After the reports of Louvet and Delaunay, on which no decision was palled, the fitting was suspended though the As- sembly did not adjourn. Whilft the most exaggerated or unfounded reports were circulating in the lower part of the hall, groups were forming upon the benches, and each gave himself up to conjectures more or less alarming, during the period that preceded the report of the Commission of Five. This morning the most awful dispositions appear to have been taken on each side both for attack and for defence.. At the commencement, of the sitting, cries were heard in the Court of the Thuilleries, and some agit- tion was visible in the Tribunals. It was announced at the bar of the Convention that the Section of Quinze Vingts had just made a rampart of their bodies in de- fence of the Convention. Freron announced, that last night he went with Barras into the Fauxbourgh St. Antoine, and that he found there none but Republicans. The Sections of Montreuil, of Popincourt, and of Quinze- Vingts had evinced the same attachment to the Convention. It is now impossible to penetrate into the interior part of the Convention, or to procure tbe remainder of the sitting. - We hear the noise of cannon, the cannon of civil war has been discharged. The combat has commenced— Death hovers over all our heads God of France Genius of Liberty ! watch over us ; protect innocence ; save the unhappy persons whom a moment of error may have dragged into the frightful abyss of desolation, of devastation, of the most frightful ravages May the culpable leaders of these infamous ma- noeuvres perish May their death, which will not ap- pease the manes of their unfortunate victims, assure at last the repose of the country which they have inces- santly convulsed. Our readers will pardon us for these lamentable complaints; our hearts are wrung with an- guish, and the blood flows on every side 1 PARIS, Oct. We are now marching upon a volcano the explosion of which will be terrible. In spite of the decree passed yesterday, the electoral bodies and the Sections remain' assembled. The Convention will execute their decree and the Government are taking, we are assured, all the necessary measures Of these measures, one is the arming of the Terrorists, an armament which good citi- zens cannot see without horror. Five hundred of these oppressed Patriots have been organised into a battalion upon the Terrace of the Thuilleries, and a cOnsiderable quantity of cartridges has been distributed among them. The inhabitants of Paris are upon their guard, and firmly determined to resist oppression. OCTOBER 6.~ - We Can no longer dissemble— Civil War is organized in our unhappy city; the ardour of discussion is about to give place to the eagerness and delirium of battle Three Sessions have already raised their standard, beat the Generate, and given the watch- word. The Convention is surrounded with cannon and bay onets. The streets Vivienne, Filles, St. Thomas, St. Augustin, Petit Champs, du Mail, & c. are full of armed men, and of advanced posts: during the whole night we heard nothing but those lugubrious words— Sentinel, take care—' the sad and monotonous expression of which infused into the mind of the impartial obser- ver the most frightful presages. This apparatus of a city in a state of siege, these cries, these soldiers, this frightful perspective of ills, ready to fall upon our unhappy country, have wrung from us tears of blood. Shall we never be released from this deplorable situation ? And are we fated to be exposed before we die, to all the degrees of opprobri- um and grief ? As soon as it was known in the Committees of Go- vernment that the Session Lepelletier had beat the gene- rale, troops' were sent to surround the Section. It was nine o'clock. Menou commanded the troops. Two Representatives of the people were with him, The armed force advanced towards the focus of in- surrection ; it was soon surrounded ; parlies were held, explanations given, and reciprocal assertions were made, that the warlike preparations were not for at- tack but defence. These assertions, whether true or false, satisfied the General; the troops and the citizens retired: but hardly had the former retired, than the latter re- assembled, and the Government perceived that they had been duped. - Louvet mounted the Tribune, and denounced Menou as guilty of a fatal temporising, if not of treason. A- nother member begged that the Assembly would sus- pend their decision until he had made a report. Every Member of the Convention spoke of distrust, treason, and departure. Such is the lot of a great Assembly, ever disposed to give crcdit to the most hazardous reports, always cu- rious, always a mob, always . _ The Convention will not suffer themselves to be mas- sacred quietly . If all the means of attack of the Con- vention appear to be good, all precautions to repel at- tack are legitimate ; and what will the Royalists have to say, who have sworn their destruction, if they are, the victims of Terrorism, which they alone have re- leased from chains, which they alone have re- armed ; or, which is the same thing, which they alone have oc. cisioned to be released and re armed. Voe victis. If in the frightful contest, the Conven- tion fall, it will never wipe away from itself the re- proach of having employed in its defence, the instru- ments which it broke on the 4th of Prairial. _ For this last fortnight provisions have increased one- third in price, and we can no longer doubt that this communication between that city and the French army Mentz is completely surrounded by the French, and Ehrenbreitstein is still closely invested. KONINGSTEIN, Sept. 18. The day before yesterday a bloody conflict between the advanced posts, in which General Beaulieu com- manded in person, took place in the environs of Lim- bourg. The result was, the French was repulsed with great loss. Yesterday the latter returned to the charge, under the protection of a terrible discharge from their artillery ; the Austrians, however, stood firm, and did not lose an inch of ground. HEIDELBERG, Sept. 24. This morning at seven o'clock, we heard the roar- ing of cannons, the French having attacked the Aus- trians on both banks of the Necker. The combat was violent, and lasted till the afternoon, when victory de- clared in favour of the Austrians on the right bank,— They took 13 pieces of cannon ; and several hundreds of French, dangerously wounded, have been, brought to this place. About two o'clock in the afternoon, the French General Tournau was brought in here a priso- ner, after being dangerously wounded. The number of killed and wounded is not yet known ; it must, however, have been considerable. The French, who were posted on the left bank of the Necker, have re- treated to a little distance, and the communication be- tween this place and Weinhein is again opened. The city of Manheim is now completely blockaded by the Austrians, who suffer nothing to enter or come out of the place. The grand Austrian Magazine at this place is to be completely emptied to- morrow. Ge- neral Wurmser with a great part of his army is advan cing by rapid marches to assist General Clairfayt; he is expected here the day after to morrow. DARMSTADT, Sept. 25. We this moment received an account of a bloody action which took place yesterday morning between the French and Aultrians between Manheim and Heidel berg, on the Neckar. The French, who were posted on this river, attacked the Austrians, and at the same time the Commander of the French garrison at Man- heim made a sortie upon the Austrian post in the vici- nity of that fortress, to drive it from its position ; but this post being reinforced by the Imperial General Quostanovich, it resisted the attack of the French, and drove them back under the cannon of Manheim. The French are said to have left 1400 dead in the field, and to have lost several pieces of cannon, and 16 wag gons loaded with powder; 500 of them are also said to have been made prisoners, among whom are a French General and his adjutants. The army under General Clairfayt forms at present a line which extends from our environs on the Rhine as Far as the county of Erbach. Their communication with the army commanded by General Wurmser, has not hitherto been impeded. remember. The thunder and lightning in particular were dreadful; fortunately the storm was very short, and none oF our ships suffered but the Russel. The City of London have unanimously voted their thanks to Lord Bridport, and the Officers and SailorS under their command, for their gallant and important victory on the 23d June, and have ordered the freedom, of the city to be presented to Lord Bridport, in a gold box, value one hundred guineas. The Army on the Continent are ordered home, and will embark at Cruxhaven. Transports are going for them;. The Commissioners of his Majesty's Victualling Of. fice contracted last week for the immense quantity of 50,000 casks of Irish beef and pork, to be delivered in- to the Victualling stores of the port of London. The opinions of the Attorney and Solicitor General are directly contrary to the resolution of the Directors and Proprietors of East India Stock, relative to remu- nerating Mr. Hastings for his law expences. The con- cluding paragraph is as follows : " We think, if the Court of Directors shall make payment in contradiction to the provisions of the Act, the Director's, who shall concur in making such pay- ment will be respeCtively personally responsible, crimi- nally as well as civilly, for their misconduCt, in the same manner as they would be for any other misapplication of the funds under their management, in breach of the provisions contained in the ACt. Mr. Crossley the Attorney in the Adelphi, was trans- mitted yesterday to Hereford, where he is to take his trial, for having, conjointly with the worthy Baronet, Sir John Briggs, forged a last Will and Testament, With intention to defraud a Gentleman in that County of very considerable estates, both real and personal, as was particularly stated in the trial, in this paper of the 18th August last. , Major Waugh, of the Invalids, has been partcularly unfortunate in has family— He had three sons, all of whOm he devoted to the army, and has now lost them all— His eldest, a Lieutenant in the 71st Regiment, - died in India at the close of the last war ; his second died Last OCtober, a Lieutenant in the East India Com- pany's service, commanding a detachment of troops on board the fleet fitted out at Calcutta for the protec- tion of trade in the Indian Seas ; and the third, a Cap- tain in the 68th Regiment, was killed the 22d of April last) at St. Lucia, at the head of the Grenadiers.

The weather having been uncommonly fine during the whole harvest, and the high prices still continuing, are circumstances which have occasioned much of the New Wheats to be threshed out in all the distriCts of the kingdom, and from which the produce of this year's crop may be thus early calculated with tolerable accu- racy. In the home counties they rise very unequally, even off adjoining lands, of no apparent difference of soil, cultivation, or bulk upon the ground. In Suffolk and Norfolk, their Wheats, it is feared, will rather prove light; in some parts of Essex, there is the same' complaint; while, in others, they never rose more abun- dantly from the flail. derived throughout a fatr crop. In Sussex, we find the best standing crops, and their produce does not fall off from their appearance. The corn already housed throughout the North is much heavier in the sheaf than what they generally expe- rience. The Oats and Barley prove a general great crop, and their quality is also superior to that known for many seasons past. Beans are a partial produce ; in particular soils., they are stout and well podded, but on the lighter lands they will not exceed half a crop.—- Pease are, in most counties, good and prOduCtive,— V increase, which his been so scandalously progressive since the contest between the Convention and the Sec tions, is the consequence, and perhaps the means. , The Louis was yesterday at 1260 livres ; butter at 4;; potatoes at 60. What means of living for a peo- ple panting under misery and uneasiness ! Postscript. it is nine o'clock at night; the firing of cannon is heard at a distance ; the streets are deserted Second Postscript. It is now half past nine o'clock. The firing of cannon continues, and, it is said, against the post of the SeCtion Lepelletier, which defends itself with desperation, relying still that the Sections of Paris which promised them succour and guarantee, will come to their relief. The prisons and all the ports are secure. OPERATIONS ON THE RHINE. A Hamburgh Mail arrived this morning. It brings an' account of a sharp aCtion on the 43d of last month, between the Austrians and the French on both sides of the Necker. The French commenced the attack upon the Austrians, but were forced to retreat with consider- able loss. In consequence of this victory the Austrians have been able to blockade Manheim, and to cut off the Yesterday arrived a mail from the Leeward Islands, by the Dashwood packet, in 43 days. The latest letters brought by the Leeward Islands Mail are dated the 19th of August, which contain the agreeable intelligence of the Caribs in St. Vincent's having been completely subdued, and that all the Islands were then in a tolerable state of tranquillity. There have been several skirmishes and posts attack- ed in the island of St. Vincent's, in almost all of which the BRITISH have been successful. The following officers have been killed in these attacks. Capt. Piguet and Capt. Schneider of - the 60th regiment ; Mr. Tho- mas Clapham ; Mr. Joseph Preston, and Mr. Thomas Taylor, Mr. Gray, and Mr. Thomas Grant, of the mi- litia and volunteers also Mr. Wiseman, a volunteer with the 46th The following have been wounded: Lieut. Mann of the 46th, ( since dead); Captains Law and Forster, and Lieut. Harford of the 46th; Captain Alves of the Royals, and Lieut. Tonson of the 60th. The BRITISH burnt two hundred boats and pettiaugers, and several houses belonging to the enemy. Among the officers who lately fell in the West Indies, was Major Mallory, of the 29th regiment. He was, by some accident, at a distance from the corps, assailed by three negroes, armed with musquets and bayonets. Though he had only his sword and a brace of pistols, he refused to surrender, but defended himself with such bravery, as to kill two of his antagonists, and to oblige the third to save himself by flight. Unfortunately, in the conflict he received some wounds, none of which were at first thought dangerous ; but wounds in the West- Indies are seldom unattended with fever; and to this, the most formidable enemy, he finally resigned his breath. Yesterday evening, the Commerce de Marseilles, Ca- nada, and the transports for the West Indies, dropped down to St. Helens; and this morning they are expect- ed to proceed upon their voyage. An American vessel arrived on Wednesday at Dover from Havre- de- Grace, the passengers by which report- ed, that Fifty Thousand French troops had marched into Paris, for the purpose of surrounding the Sections, and crushing their opposition to the Decrees of the Convention. Letters from the Western Departments say, that the Englilh fleet is still in Quiberon Bay, and that partial debarkations are frequently made. A letter from Nantz mentions that the whole army of the Western Pyrenees, amounting to 39,000 men is arrived in La Vendee— that Charette is strongly en- trenched at Bellville, but that General Canclaux is speedily to attack him in his entrenchments. By a letter from an Officer on board Sir J. B. War- ren's squadron, dated on the 2d inst. and received by the Russel of 74 gunS, arrived at Plymouth, we learn, that Isle Dieu has been taken possession of by our for- ces ; but the general belief in the squadron was, that the expedition would speedily be abandoned, as bad weather was beginning to come on, and no effectual assistance could be given to Charette, as he was not in sufficient force to possess himself of any strong post contiguous to the sea. Our fleet continued to block L'Orient, in which were nine sail of the line, and four frigates; Part of the outward- bound Jamaica fleet arrived the day before yesterday at Bristol ; and one transport from Jamaica arrived yesterday at Portsmouth. The ac- counts brought by the ships arrived at Bristol state, that some of the ships belonging to the fleet were taken in the Gulph of Florida. The Captains of several Jamaica ships come round, do not believe the report of eight ships belonging to London having been taken in the Gulph. They heard nothing of any such event, during the whole course of. their voyage, and think it could not have happened without their hearing of it. The French Commissioners left Dover on Wednes- day morning, in two coaches and four, attended by Mr. Boyd, the banker in London, and proceeded to Can- terbury, where they were met by Mr. Marsh on the part of our Government. A conference was held yesterday at Canterbury, be- tween Mr. Marsh, appointed on the part of Govern- ment, and the French Commissioners. So far from the French Commissioners making any public declaration of the object of their million to this country, they observe, what it is their duty to do, the most profound secrecy to all persons who visit them re- speCting it. No person is permitted to see them, with- out giving in his name at the bar of the Inn where they reside and when they walk out they are constantly at- tended by an Officer. Parliament will certainly meet on the 29th instant, agreeable to the King's proclamation. It is now generally believed, that the greatest part of the ordinary business will be done by the present Parliament, and the new one be summoned in the Spring. The detachment of the Russian Fleet at the Nore will sail again on a cruize of six weeks in the North Seas, before the expiration of the month, after whiCh they will return to the Nore, where they will pass the winter. The Duke of York has expressed his strongest cen- sure of the conduCt of those Colonels of new Corps, who over- stepped the limits of their instruCtions, by promising to their men that they should not be drafted, from which such unpleasant consequences have ensued. The storm which overtook the fleet under Admiral Harvey off the Coast of France on the 1st inst. was One of the most severe that the oldest sailor on board could Hops are in brisk demand, particularly the fine condi- tioned ones of last year. This year's produce of Hops will be scarcely half a crop. Marriage, Robert Lang, Esq; of Finsbury- square,. to Miss Francklyn, of Wimpole- street. Death.— In the 71st year of his age, the Rev.

Captain Adamson of the brig Peggy, belonging to Anstruther, arrived on Friday at Leith, from Peters- burgh. He sailed from ElsineUr on the 27th ult. under convoy of the frigate Terpsichore, of 32 guns, com- manded by Captain Bowen, with about sixty other ships, for England and Scotland ; and fifteen more join- ed in the Cattegate, the Sleeve, and the North Sea. Several of the ships were loaded with naval stores, for Government; and, many of the Scots vessels, being loaded with wheat, induced Captain Bowen to convoy the. Scots trade within 10 or 1 j leagues of the Frith of Forth, where he judged them to be Out of the reach of any enemy. None of the numerous British cruizers, said to be in the North Sea, appeared, during the whole of their passage. But Captain Bowen paid a particular and judicious attention' to his charge, and deserves thanks from the Community at large, as well as from every person immediately interested in the satety of this large and valuable convoy. From the MARTINIQUE GAZETTE. ST. PIERRE'S, July 8. " The brig Clarissa, of this port, sailed from Cork the 15th of May, and. was taken the 6th of June, in lat 27, long. 33, by, a gun boat, schooner rigged, of three 4. pounders, and 80 men,' bound from Rochfort to Cayenne. An officer, six men and three boys, were put on board in charge of the prize; four of the brig's people were left on' board, the Chief Mate, the Steward ( a Mulatto man), and two passengers, one of them confined to his bed. The vessel was demanded by the Mate from the officer, on the after part of the quarter- deck. An immediate scuffle ensued in conse- quence ; the Mate's pistol missed the first fire, and was broke' on the Officer's head : two severe wounds im- mediately followed; and he fell a victim to the passen- ger's reserved pistol, and drew his last breath with ex- pressions of surprise and regret, that ten Republicans should fall beneath the courage of three Britons : his second being severely wounded on the arm and knee by | the Steward, and the third in command having receiv- ed a deep cut on the breast, quarter was called for, and immediately granted; and so great was the im- pression that the courage and exertions of these three men made on the minds of the nine remaining Repub- licans, that they made no attempt whatever, during 19 days voyage, to regain their liberty. Fortunately for these brave men, they made this port this evening, without any assistance but what they drew from nature, and the resources of their own minds. The commer- cial laws of their country have amply provided for them, and they will be living evidences of the rewards, that constantly attend enterprize, generality, and cou- rage." COURT MARTIAL. The sentence of the Court Martial which sat on Captain Menzies and Lieutenant Creagh, of the city of Cork militia, having received his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland's approbation, is at length made public. The circumstances of the case were as follow :— Captain Menzies persevering in unpleasing re- marks on Lieut. Creagh's being in low spirits, an alter- cation took place. The former made an indelicate al- lusion respecting a Female relative of the latter; on which Lieut. Creagh knocked him down, and gave him a severe beating. The Captain was tried for using pro- voking and ungentlemanly language,, and the Lieute- nant for striking his superior officer. Captain Menzies was found guilty, and dismissed the service. Lieute- nant Creagh, acquitted. A letter from Westmorland Fort, Cove of Cork, dated Sept. 25, says, " A party of Royal Irish. artille- ry doing duty here have received orders to hold them- selves in readiness to embark for foreign service.

The brig Friendship Robert Craig master, bound to the Baltic, was captured on the 21st ult. about to leagues to the eastward of the May, by the Dutch cut- ter Venguer of 16 guns. The Mate was left on board the Friendship, and sent to Christiansands : the Captain and red of the crew were taken on board the cutter. The Jenny and Jean, Rankin, laden with crown glass, bound for Bristol, from the Clyde, was on her passage, encountered with a vessel in the night time, by which means it is supposed a leak in her bottom was made, the effects of which were not for some time felt, till the vessel standing out further to sea, in a very short time she became so leaky, that the master and crew were obliged to desert her to preserve their lives, which they with difficulty effected. On Friday night the low door of a gentleman's; house in Prince's Street - was opened, and a hat and three large plates taken away The servants were in the kitchen very near where the articles were.

LANDS IN WIGTONSHIRE-. - To be SOLD by private bargain, or otherwise by public sale, at Edinburgh, within the Royal Exchange Coffee- house, upon Thursday the 26th day of November next, at 6 o'clock in the evening, In whole or in lots as shall be found most suitable, ALL and WHOLE the Lands and Baronies of ARD- WELL and KILLASTER, in the parish of Stonykirk, and Lands of CAIRNGAWN, AUGNEIGHT, and SLOCK, in the parish of Kirkmaiden, and shire of Wigton. The present yearly rent of this estate is only about L. 750 Sterling, including conversions of victual rent, presents, and services at the current prices, and a moderate rent put upon the lands round the Mansion house, in the proprietor's posses- sion— But as the current leases were in general let for grassums without any addition to the old rents, very little rise of rent has taken place on this estate for thirty years past, and there- fore as the current leases shall expire, very great rises of rent may be expeCted. In particular, the whole estate in the pa- rish of Kirkmaiden, and the farm of Drumbredden, in Stony- kirk parish, the present rents whereof are only about L. no yearly, will be free of lease at or before Whitsunday 1797, and are considered to be worth upwards of L. 320 yearly. And as the other leases expire from time to time, similar rises of rent may reasonably be expeCted, 1 And by the current tacks. of four small farms, the rents thereof increase L. 2) : 5 ; 8 Ster- ling at Whitsunday 1797, and 1798, though the tacks endure for a longer period. The Baronies of Ardwell and Killaster, in Stonykirk parish, consist of 3735 Scots acres, all lying contiguous. And the Lands in Kirkmaiden parish consist 0f 844 Scots acres, accord- ing to an accurate survey lately made. And almost the whole of both estates are good arable lands; and, being, bounded by the sea, and different good harbours on the estates, where lime and other manure can be imported-, they are capable of great Improvement. There is a good Mansion- house, pleasantly situated, on the Barony of Ardwell, with suitable offices, a good, fruit and kit- chen garden, and several thriving plantations; also a consider- able Farm around the house; all which are now out of lease, amd may be entered to immediately, and are suitable for the accommodation of a large and genteel family. the title- deeds. plans, tacks, and rentals, are in the hands . of Vans Hathorn, writer to the signet, who has also power to conclude a private- bargain before the day of public sale before- mentioned. , Application for further particulars may he made to the said Vans Hathorn, or to Mr. William Ross, at Stranraer, the fac- tor, who will give direCtions for shewing the estate, and has also copies of the plans and rentals.
