VOL. LXX. THE EDINBURG No. 3629. ADVERTISER. From FRIDAY OCTOBER 5, to TUESDAY OCTOBER 9, 1798. SATURDAY', POST. From the LONDON PAPBRS, Oct. LONDON, FURHER PARTICULARS of the late GLORIOUS VICTORY, which did not appear in the GAZETTE EXTRAORDI- NARY, published in last ADVeRtiseR The French had the advantage in the beginning of the action,- of being at an- chor, and of annoying our ships as they led into action, before they could come to an anchor; be sides the protection which they received from the batteries of guns and mortars on shore, and from being flanked by gun- boats.- Commodore TROWBRIDGE, in the CULLODEN, un- fortunately got ashore before the action, and though be made every exertion, was unable to participate in ths glo- ry of the fight, this reduced the two lines of battle to an equality in point of numerical force ; but in weight of me- tal, number of guns and men, of frigates and gun- boats, and in the material circumstance of batteries on shore, the French had greatly the advantage.— The French had three 80 gun ships, and one of 12o guns, whereas we had none of higher rate than 74' s. The French had 1190 guns, the English only 1012, and from that number a deduction must be made of the CULLODeN'S 74 guns, as she was unable to take any part in the action. When these things are considered, and it is reflected that the English Admiral run close in shore to make the attack on a fleet moored to receive him, and a number of gun boats, the whole protect- ed by land batteries, that the battle was fought at night, and that but two out of thirteen of the enemy's ships en- gaged escaped, it is in all its characters the most splendid victory ever atchieved. The British Fleet on passing the French battery, proceed- ed immediately to break the enemy's line, and having suc- ceeded in this manoeuvre, seven ships, including L'Orient, were cut ofF. The British ships anchored close along side the enemy as They came up. Capt. DARBY, in the Bellerophon, of 74 guns, attacked singly the French Admiral's ship L'Orient, of 120 guns, and set her on fire. It will be seen from the Official account, that this brave action was attended with the loss of a very considerable number of Officers and men on board the Bel lerophon. The L'Orient had on board 1010 men.— Adm. BRUEYS himself, who commanded her, was shot through the body, and the Captain under him killed, before she took fire. On board this ship was the whole of the treasure taken by the French at Malta, which was very considerable. The num- ber of men on board Le Timoleon, the other French ship which was burnt, is stated in the Gazette to be seven hun- dred ; and the crews of L'Artemise frigiate, burnt, and Le Serieuse, sunk, amounted to five hundred. The total loss of the French IS estimated at nearly FIVE THOUSAND ; that ot the BRITISH, in killed and wounded, amounts only to eight hundred and ninety five. The Culloden, which grounded in the beginning of the action, was got off after its termination. Admiral NELSON received a severe wound in the head from a splinter; but he states, in a private letter to Lady SPENCEr, that he is nearly recovered. Though his spirit bears him up, we are, however, extremely anxious respect- ing him, as he occasionally felt great inconvenience from it. Sir JAMES SAUMAREZ was recovering of his wound, and hoped in a few days to be as well as ever. Capt. BERRY is coming home over land, through Italy and Germany, with dispatches from Admiral NELson. Several letters have been received from Sir HORATIO NELSON, written with his own hand. There is one in par ticular to Mr. DUNDAS giving in a very masterly stile, a view of the probable consequences of his victory, not only to Europe, but to India.— A Messenger was yesterday dis- patched to Scotland with the letters for Mr. DUNDAS. - The following extract of a letter from on board the O- rion, contains some interesting information : Extract of a letter from on board the ORION, dated Be- quieR roAD, Aug. 9. " Sir HORATIO NeLSON has sent an officer to India, with the account of the victory ; Lieut. DUVAL of the Zea- lous is charged with his dispatches and set off yesterday in a Turkish boat, which was to land him in Syria, on his way to Aleppo ; a vessel detained the day before with dispatches and letters from BUONAPARTE'S army at Grand Cairo, will make the Admiral's dispatches still more interesting 0 our Settlements in India, as they all tend to represent the French Army in the most disastrous situation, as well from the severites they have undergone in their march across the sandy deserts, as from the depredations of the Mamelukes and Arabs, and also from being deprived of wine and spi- rits, without which the French troops find it next to im- possible TO resist the excessive heat, or indure fatigue. It ap pears that BUONAPARTE meant to proceed to Suez. and demand transports and craft to meet him on the Nile,. but when he hears the defeat of the French Fleet, it will throw him into despair, particularly as the squadron Sir HORATIO NELSON proposes to keep up here, will effectually cut off for some time all communication with Alexandria." The splendid victory places GRIAT BRITAIN in a proud situation the most undoubted Mistress of the Ocean, and the ARBITRESS of EUROPE. The minds of BRITONS muft be filled with gratitude « > DIVINE PROVIDENCE, who thus crowns with victory. the arms of a brave people, fight- ing for their INDEPENDENCE, their CONSTITUTION, and their RELIGION. While awful visitations are going forth over the face of the . civilized world,, this nation has stood firm, amidst the shock, almost the sole refuge of the arts and the commerce of Europe, and of every thing that dignifies So- ciety, and can make it valuable to Man. While the mind is raised by this consoling reflection, let us. with all due, humility, think that sve may be the favoured instruments, in the hand of Providence, of curbing the arrogance and extirpating the principles of Anarchy and Atheism, which the French Revolution has engendered. We now stand in such a situation of political, as well as moral pre- eminence, that we have only to use our successes with wisdom, to se- eure every point we Can desire. Let us maintain our pre- sent position with firmness and patience, and little doubt can be entertained that a change will take place in France, which must give honourable Peace and permanent security to Europe. The receipt of this intelligence, it is hardly necessary to say, occasioned the sincerest rejoicings in every part of the town. A SUBSCRIPTION for the RELIEF of the WIDOWS and CHILDREN of those BRAVE MEN WHO FELL, and for such as have been WOUNDED in the ENGAGEMENT, was, on the receipt of the intelligence, opened a' LLOYD'S Cof- fee- house, and ELEVEN HUNDRED POUNDS . were immedi- ately subscribed. Authentic intelligence was also yesterdav received that BUONAPARTE was at Grand Cairo, destitute of provisions and every necessary, and not able to get at any supplies.—, His soldiers, almost poisoned with the water of the coun- try, were in ill health and discontented ; and he was at va- riance with his Officers, who were disgusted with the Ex- pedition. It was supposed he had an intention of re- im- barking, but the destruction of his Fleet must have put an end to all hopes he might entertain of returning. The GRAND SEIGNiOR was making every effort to collect a force still further to distress and harass him, and we may venture to predict that the failure of his Expedition, if not the total loss of his Army, will be the next intelligence which we shall to communicate respecting the Hero of Italy. BUONAPARTE's dispatches, it will be seen by the extract of the letter from on board the Orion, are in possession of Admiral NeLSOn. - By letters from Vienna, dated the 19th September, it ap- pears that the intelligence of Sir HORATIO NELSON'S glori- ous victory had been received in that city with the most live- ly and universal expressions of joy;— the lower order of people, in particular, appeared to be transported with the success of the British Fleet-, indeed the disposition mam- fested by them, and bv the soldiery, on this and other occa- sions, if properly roused and animated would render them capable of the noblest exertions. MONDAYs POST. From the LONDON PAPERS, Oct. LONDON thE advantages likely to result, not only to England but to all Europe," from such a glorious event as the late Victory, are at present incalculable; it will arouse the timid and confirm the bold, we will yet trust, to the ultimate con- tusion of unprincipled France. In this hope we are strengthened by the arrival of the Hamburgh Mail. Letters from Constantinople represent hostillities as having actually commenced against France, a frigate, ( it is confirmed)' having been taken in th; Mediter- ranean by two Turkish galliots and a strong Turkish f1eet received orders to sail immediatelv. The French Minister remains a prisoner in his own house ; he would have been committed to the Seven Towers, but, for the intercession made in his favour by the Spanish and Dutch Ministers, who likewise undertook a vindication of the con- duct of France in landing an army in Egypt on the ground of its object being to chastise the Beys, for want of proper submission to the SUBLIME PORTE. • This fulsome apology had no effect with tHe Reis Effendi, who firmly replied, that it was the business of the GRAND SEIGNIOR to punish any disobedience in his, servants, and not that of Any Foreign Power~-- that the landing of the French army at Alexandria was considered as a violation of the Rights of Nations, which called for just revenge. The Grand Vizir and the Mufti have been removed from their situations, being accused of want of zeal and patriotism in the present state of affairs. In Egypt and near the Red Sea, all persons supplying the French with provisions, See. are ordered to be imme- diately strangled. We rejoice to learn that Ministers are resolved to make our great naval superiority effectual to the Renovation of OUr commerce in the Mediterranean and the Levant. A com- pact is entered into with the KiNG of NApLes, by which the ports of Sicily are to be put into our possession, for the defence of his dominions, and for the purposes of our naval operations in those seas:. General STEWART is actually gone to take the command, and our troops lately in Portugal are on their way thither. A most critic 1 post will thus be esta- blished. . The blockade of Malta will be formed and con- tinued without danger to our ships, as they will take shelter in the ports of Messina and Syracuse, and hopes are even entertained that the island will fall into our hands.— The first fruits of this victory may be its surrender, and its pos- session would greatly facilitate the recovery of the Levant trade. The PRINCE of WALES met with an accident on Satur- day, near Canterbury :— a vicious mare that his Royal High- ness rode, fell with him, and his spur fastening in the sad- dle cloth, he was dragged some paces, during which she twice lashed at him; but providentially he met no other hurt than being scraped in the cheek by the gravel. He was immediately blooded, and was so well next morning, as to have a field- day with his regiment on Barham Downs. Sir- RICHARD CARRE GLYNN, who is elected LORD MAYOR of LONDON, is of firm Constitutional principles. ALDERMAN COMBE WaS before Sir Richard in rotation, but he was rejected. The numbers for SIR RICHARD GLYNN were fifteen ; for ALDeRMAN COMBE, who is in the opposition five. BUONAPARTE became a Mussulman on his arrival in Egypt. from the political consideration, that whatever a man is, it becomes very convenient for him to be of the established religion. IN pursuance of this beneficial notion, while BUO- NAPARTE was at Rome, " he did the same as Rome did." Tuesday the Rev. Walter Chapman, Vicar of Banwell, in Somersetshire, had his neck dislocated by a fall from his horse, and he instantly expired. - SHOCKING ACCIDENT.— Saturday evening, while the chil- dren of Mr. Lewis of Sutton- street, were at play together in the kitchen, a kettle of boiling water was by some means thrown from the fire- grate, and one of them, a fine little boy of about two years old, was scalded to death in a most dread- ful manner.

AT the Michaelmas Meeting of the FREEHOLDERS of the County of Ayr, assembled at the Head Court,— WILLIAM CUNNINGHAM, Esq; of Lainshawr Preses,— The following Resolu- tions were moved by DAVID BOYLE, Esq; Advocate, and seconded by JOHN HAMILTON, Esq; of Sundrum, and unanimously agreed to: 1st, Resolved, That this Meeting, taking into consideration the present state of the law of Scotland, with respect to Bail is decid- edly of opinion, that the sums for which bail is appointed to be found by persons apprehended for criminal offences, under autho- rity of the Statute, 1761, C. 6, and of that of the llth of Geo. lit. C. is, however adequate they may have been to the state of this country at the periods of the enactment of these respective sta- tutes. bear at present no proper relation to the circumstances of the times,' the situation of individuals, and the general advance- ment of the country. 2dly, That it is the opinion of this meeting, that the smallness of the sums allowed to be taken as security in Bailable offences, un- der authority Of the statutes above mentioned, fo far from only serving as a protection from the hardships of unnecessary imprison- ment, has in fact a direct tendency to bring into contempt the authority of the Magistrate, and to render the most salutary laws nugatory and defective, by affording a temptation and facility to the Commission of the most dangerous and atrocious offences with comparative impunity. ' 3rdly. That this Meeting convinccd of the great and serions evils - resulting to the country at large from the present state of the law of Scotland with respect to Bail, as evinced by the numberless es- capes from the justice of the laws, of persons accused of the most dangerous and atrocious offences, is of opinion that an amend- ment in this department of the law is now peculiarly necessary and expedient. 4tily, that this Meeting in full reliance upon the Wisdom of the legislature, do therefore resolve that copies of the foregoing reso- lutions be signed and transmitted by the preses, to the Right Hon. the Earls of Eglintone, Cassillis, Dumfries, and Glasgow, to Colo- nel Fullarton, the member of Parliament for this County, aud to John Campbell, esq the member of Parliament for this district of Burghs, and that the Preses do request in the name of this Meeting, that they will give their support to any Bill that may be introduced into either House of Parliament, for the purpose of altering and amending the present law of Scotland with respect to Bail in criminal offences. It was moved by Mr. Hamilton of Sundrum, and seconded by Mr. Cunninghame of Enterkine, and unanimously agreed to, that the thanks of the Meeting be given to Mr. Boyle, for his having brought forward the above resolutions upon this occasion.

Our vessels were then thrown into disorder. Every one cut their cables to avoid the wreck. " We had no conception that we should be attacked on the land side, considering the small space between us and the banks along the shore ; but the English shot along in this di- rection in so masterly a manner, that only their first ship touched the ground ; and the rest passed in two lines on the starboard and larboard sides of our headmost vessels. Our line was thus between two fires from the van to the L'Orient, which was in the centre. . " Admiral BRUEyES, after being first wounded in the leg, was cut in two with a shot. The l'Orient took fire it was impossible to extinguish it, at length she Blew up and threw our squadron into disorder." The Directory already anticipate the probable conse- quences of the defeat. In a Message addressed by them to the Council of Five Hundred, they require under pretence of the delays at Rastadt, a Levy of Two, Hundred Thou- sand Men to be immediately mustered and such is the ur gency of the measure, that instead of attending to the cus- tomary forms of raising troops, the Council decreed that every Frenchman, who on the 22d September had attained twenty, was in a state of Requisition, and liable to be im- mediately called into service. The destruction of the fleet has had the effect of Working up the rage of the Dirctory almost to a degree of madness. Their demand of a new levy of TWO huNDREd THOUSAND MEN is granted, for the Legislature has no power to refuse any thing ; a measure of finance must also be thought of, equal to the support of such a mighty levy. How this may operate upon the public mind, we have yet to learn. The object of raising such an army, notwithstanding the threats against England, is evidently to rush upon the German Frontier, provided the terms of peace which have been pro- posed at Rastadt, are not immediately acceded to ; on the OCT. other hand, we perceive a growing disposition in the deputa tirin of - he Empire, produced, no doubt, by the victory ob- tained in the Mediterranean, to resist those terms ; we may therefore expect a speedy recommencement of hostilities, in which case, the strong probability is. that the first advantage will be on the side of France, in consequence of her superior activity we, however, trust the Imperial Cabinet is well provided against the consequences ot a new war ; indeed it appears to be apprehended in France, that Prussia secretly supports the Deputation of the Empire in its present de- to be quarter- master, and T.

The French Government, while they endeavour to depre- ciate the glory of NeLSON, by stating he had a superior force, cannot conceal their chagrin. They vent their spleen in a torrent of invective and menace, and call upon the Councils for hew supplies of money, new means of war, and a fresh levy of 2OO, 0OO men, to repair the losses they have suffered, and to command their own terms of peace.— The anxiety of the Directory to Undervalue the disaster ; their pains to rouse the spirit of the nation; the pitiful attempts of the Official ' Journals to palliate the misfortune, and to detract from the glory of the conquerors the whole conduct of the Commissions in the GLASGOW VOLUNTEER ASSOCIATION, signed by his Mayesty C.

From the LONDON PAPErS, Oct. 6. ADVICES FROM FRANCE. LONDON. French Papers to the 2d inst. are received. They contain a string of the grossest falsehodds, respecting the late action, that can be conceived. They state that, the English fleet was greatly superior in guns and men — that all the English ships, except six, were reduced to mere wrecks, that Ad- miral NELSON was killed in the action, and that the British lost more men than the French. The following are the only paragraphs in the French Papers, that have any appearance of truth : " The English attacked us with inexpressible fury. More than one half of out line was placed between two fires ; and the rest did not get into action until the van was disabled. " The superb ship the L'Orient took fire at ten o'clock She was attacked so closely, that it was the wadding of the English ships that set her on fire ; and the sailors fought each other with their rammers. It was impossible to extin guish the flames. lt was a terrible but melancholy spectacle to she this vessel fighting to the last extremity, though with the certain prospect of destruction. About midnight she blew Directory, and Message upon the subject, bespeak how sorely they are pinched. MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTORY. COUNCIL OF FIVE HUNDRED. Sitting of the 23d Sept. The Directory addressed a Message to the Council re- specting the extraordinary means which ought to be adopted in order to accelerate the conclusion of a General Peace** At the commencement of the Congresses at Rastadt, every thing seemed to announce that the honors of war would soon be terminated. The Directory negociated with good faith, and had no other objeCt but to conduct our Phalanxes against the Tyrants of the Sea, who, terrified at the storm which threatened them, fought to avoid it, by planting dis- cord and corruption in several of the Cabinets of Europe. " Our Armies by sea and land are in great want, but we have great resource's. The Republic can still sustain an ex traordinary crisis. " The army is not complete— Two Hundred Thousand Men are wanting to complete the corps, and Ninety Mil- lions a- year for their support, beyond the other sums voted for the ensuing year. The effect of this measure depends upon its celerity. It is impossible to wait till the registers are finished ; therefore the Directory, for this time, propose to make the five classes contribute. The whole of the ex- traordinary supplies, in order to enable our defenders on both elements to accelerate Peace, amount to One Hundred and Twenty five Millions. The Directory conclude with saying, it is time that the War for Liberty should finish, and their enemies be swept from the face of the earth I— France ought to appear with the Olive Branch in one hand and the Thunderbolt of War in the other.

" The squadron from Brest, whose sailing we announced, was composed of the ship Hoche, on board which was the Commander of Marine, with the Commander also of the army of the Expedition ; he frigates La Romaine, L'Im- mortalite l'Ambuscade, La Coquille, La Semillante, La Resolus la Bellone, La Loire, and the Goelette la Biohe. It had on board 3000 men, Muskets, Artillery, Ammunition, & c. The Army is commanded by the General of Brigade HARDy, with General MENAgE, second in command and Adjutant- General SImON, as Aide- du- camp. " There is every reason to suppose that this squadron is destined for Ireland, and no mystery's made of it, as the songs made by the Officers on board mention it. " On the day before yesterday a commotion took place on board the Hoche, the pretence for which was the want of pay. The Officers in the yard having three months pay due to them, refused to work, and BoMPArD armed himself with his pistols and his sabre, and falling on the most muti- nous, dispersed them. He afterwards punished the ring- leaders who had insulted their Officers, and thus quelled the mutiny by his own exertions." One of the French accounts state, the Brest fleet which lately sailed has returned to port, having observed a superior British force in chace of them. The Directory has published no Official account, of the battle of the Nile. The Journals the Bien Informe, and the ReVelateur, have been suppressed for giving accounts of the aCtion, and reflecting on the Directory for sending BUONA- pARTe to perish in Egypt. The French Papers acknowledge, that the progress of BUONAPARTE in Egypt was obstinately contested, and his success was not obtained without considerable loss. The French themselves now consider BUONAPARTE as left solely dependent on the resources of his own genius. Turin has been the scene of a riot fomented by French Officers, who have stated in their justification, to have been intoxicated. An insult was offered to his SARDINIAN MA- JESTY, which was resented by the populace, and a disturb- ance ensued, in which several of the French soldiers were killed. The tumult Was; however, appeased before the French Ambassador returned to town.— it will, we have n0 doubt, be made the pretence for an attack on the dominions of the KINg of SARDINIA. Accounts dated the 17th of August, were received on Wednesday from Constantinople, that Sir HORATIO NELSON was off the Island of Rhodes ; the French transports were at Alexandria, he had left some of his squadron to prevent their getting away, and had sent to the PORTE for bomb- vessels, & c. to enable him to destroy them. BUONAPARTE had cut off the heads of above 200 Turks, for rejoicing at the victory over the French Fleet. His troops were sickly — he had expressed his determination of marching into Syria, but It was thought he could be prevented from the want of provisions, & c. It is confirmed; thti the GRAND SEIGNIOR had removed his Vizier because he did not think him sufficiently hostile to the French. The Members of the French Mission had been all arrested and imprisoned. the attack of on fleet was the most masterly it is pos- sible to conceive. The French ships were drawn up in a Close line of battle, expecting the attack, with springs upon their cables, thus presenting a chain of batteries against our ships— They had moreover batteries on shore, and gun- boats to proteCt their flanks. thus formidably posted, it seemed difficult to force, them ;— but they knew not the en- terprizing spirit of the BRITISH AdMiraL, or the undaunt- ed courage of his officers and men. Sir HORATIO NEL- SON turned even the precautions of the enemy to his own advantage. He made the signal for his fleet as they led in to get between the French line and the shore, a signal that was obeyed with that alacrity, which shewed that the Bri. tish Tars were resolved to make up for their former dis- appointment in not falling in with the enemy. By this bold and judicious manoeuvre, they attacked the French in the side thev were least prepared for aCtion. It was in performing this service that the Culloden, our van ship grounded We sympathize with the feelings of the gallant Capt. TROUbRIDGE upon this unfortunate and trying event. Happily the abscence of his ship was of no material disad- vantage to the general result of the acton, though had she had her share of it, commanded as she is. we have little doubt that every one of the French ships would have been taken or burnt. , To give a just idea of the comparative force of the two fleets in the late glorious action, we here present it in a close point of view ; ENGLISH.

From our Force ought likewise to he deducted the guns and men of the Culloden, who were thrown out of the action by the misfortune of her getting on sHore.— In whatever point we view this action, it must be considered as the most brilliant that ever was atchieved. Strange as it may appear, we are well assured that in BUO- NAPARTE'S dispatches, the name of India is never once mentioned. His mind, it appears, was so engrossed by the distresses and desperation of his situation, that he could think of that alone— And in a letter from one of BUONAPARTE'S Officers to his wife, he says that from the prospeCt which they then had, he would think himself very fortunate to re- turn to Paris— his expression is— even - without his shirt. BuoNAPARTE was without necessaries— His Hospitals were full, and without medicines of any kind. Under these circumstances the fate of bUONAPARTe and his army seems nearly decided. Cut off from all reinforcements and sup OCT, 9. ' the plies, nothing could he left for him but to surrender at dis- eretion, or to make Cairo a Charnel House, by the mortality of his whole army. Of the loss which BUONAPARTE sustained in his march from Alexandria to Cairo, it is impossible to form any accu rate estimate ; but all accounts agree that it was very consi derable indeed. He was engaged in three very obstinate bat The french Papers acknowledge that Generals Kleber and Menou were wounded. BUONAPARTE has sent a detach ment of his troops to Suez, but their success is not known. BUONAPARTE is master of no more ground, than what is im mediately occupied by his army. The French Government may be considered as having laid a train for its own destruCtion. They have fallen into the snare which they prepared for others. This expedition was intended as a decisive measure which was to determine the fate of BRITAIN : they have Failed in their object, and the vengeance of the Turkish Empire will be again roused to hurl that destruCtion on the present tyrannising Government which has already swept away those that preceded it ! Admiral NELSON is rather unlucky in his own person, as he rarely escapes without a wound. Fortunately the hurt be has received on his head in the late aCtion, is not dan- gerous and even if it should leave a scar, it may be Covered by a Coronet. The wound Admiral NELSON received was from a splin- ter, which struck his head and eyes. He has sent home two private letters, one to Lady NELSON, the other to Lady SPENCER. In the letter to Lady SPENCER, he speaks of his wound as a very slight one ; and, we are informed, says that he has only got black eyes and a bloody nose. Admiral NELSON is now only in the 40th year of his age. Capt. BERRY, who so gallantly fought the Vanguard, af- ter Sir HORATIO NELSON was wounded, may be hourly ex pected to arrive with the Admiral's more particular detail of the Glorious Action which he atchieved. To Capt. BERRY the country owes every tribute of the warmest gratitude for the most important services that perhaps ever were render- ed by any man in a similar situation. The Hon. Capt. CAPEL, who brought the last dispatches, is the youngest son of the Earl of ESSEX : he has been made Post Captain. Of the duration of the action different accounts have been received. It appears, however, according to the most cor- rect statement, that it lasted nineteen hours. From the fidelity with which the French have given the details of their Naval Engagement off Rosetta, we may con- jecture what credit is due to the account of their Conquests in Egypt. A letter from the COMPTROLLER GeNeRAL of the East- ern Army in Egypt, to his wife at Paris, was intercepted in the vessel which had BUONAPARTE'S dispatches on board : This letter is dated Rosetta, in EGYPT, 17th Thermidor 6th year of the French Republic, or 3d of August, 1798. After giving an account of the total destruction of the Toulon Fleet, it adds, " I have had, since my arrival here, my portrait, in pro- file, taken by an able Artnij ewtcu o; nay j it is said . very like, but we have so many English around us, that for fear of its falling in their hands; or going to the bottom of the sea, I dare not send it. I could wish to be the bearer of it myself ; be assured, that as soon as I can obtain that per- mission, which I shall not cease to solicit, I shall take my departure— there is no fortune shall retain me— I shall be contented to arrive with you naked as my hand. " I embrace you, and also my Children, " E. POUSSIEULQUE." Extract of a letter from Capt. BALL, of his Majesty's ship ALEXANDER, dated Bequier Road. Mouth of the Nile. " Before this reaches you, you will have heard of the battle of the Nile. I only received a slight wound by a musket ball taking a piece of flesh from my left cheek, Which will leave a small scar. My ship was engaged within pistol shot of l'Orient when she caught fire, after which appropriate observation of another at somes distance from him—" Why, damn it, they have— have not they?" The Messenger who carried the dispatches to his MAJES. TY, containing the account of Admiral NELSON'S victory, was stopped on Hounslow Heath by a highwayman, who robbed him of eight guineas and took the dispatches also.— The Messenger told him he was welcome to the money, but requested he would return the dispatches, which gave an account of the complete destruction of the French Fleet in the Mediterranean. The highwayman hearing this, ex- pressed the highest satisfaction at the news, Very loyally re- turned the papers, and told the Messenger to make all the hade possible to his journey's end. Lord DUNCAN'S victory gave rise to fashions for the win- ter. Now Admiral NELSON will set the mode for the sea son. Our Ladies will dress themselves a l'Egyptienne.— We shall have . the Mummy Shroud instead of the Tartan plaid, and the head a la Crocodile instead of the Cockernony. PRINCE CHARLES of Hesse, now called Citizen Hesse who resides at Paris, in a letter same time ago to the Editor of one of the Parisian Journalists, stiles Admiral NELSON the KING of the English Admirals. Success seems to fol- low this title, which was bestowed sneeringly. We have had not a few of this sort of Kings, and we trust that the race of them will never be extinct. . A most daring outrage was committed op Wednesday night on Capt; Lowe of the Horse Guards, who was at- tacked by an armed mob, in the same manner as Capt. DUN- CAN, ( son of Lord DUNCAN,) had been on the preceding evening. Capt. Lowe, who bravely defended himself with his sword, would probably have been murdered but for the Interference of a Corporal of the Coldstream Regiment, who, in rescuing him, received a wound from a dagger in the knee. Two of the villains are in custody. On the same night Sir R. BURNET'S carriage was stopped opposite the Admiralty, and a loaded pistol was fired, which wounded Sir ROBERT, but we hope not dangerously. These outrages determined the Magistracy to put an end to the illuminations which otherwise would have taken place last night, for the third time. 179$' — ... EDINBURGH. The LONDON GAZETTE, received this day, published in page 228, contains the important intelligence, that the OT- TOMAN PORTE had declared war against FRANCE, and sent the FRENCH AMBASSADOR to the Seven Towers. The Russian Fleet had appeared off Constantinople. HAMBURGH MAIL. A HAMBURGH MAIL arrived on Saturday, and brings the following important intelligence : VIENNA, Sept. 19. From the COURT GAZETTE. " Letters from Constantinople of the 31st ult. contain intelligence, that the Russian Fleet, consisting of twelve sail of the line and several smaller vessels, were then in sight from that city, near the entrance of the Black Sea, and was expected there by the first fair wind, to proceed from thenCe into the Mediterranean. " A frigate is arrived at Trieste, to carry Gen. MACK to Naples, where he is to have the chief command of the Ar- my. " The march of the Russians has not been countermand- ed. They are 6o, ooo in number; the first division of which, 30,000, were expected at Teschen on the 10th. The van- guard is already arrived in Bohemia. Besides the 60,000, 40,000 are to be collected on the Frontiers of Poland, to make as it were a body of Reserve. The march of another body of Russians through Moldavia and Wallachia, against Widden, is fully confirmed. " The PORTE has received information, that the Arabs had had the imprudence to attack BUONAPARTE in his in. trenchments, in which attempt they suffered very much, but the French also suffered very greatly. " BUONAPARTE has occupied Cairo with 6,000 of his best troops; He has lost many men by sickness." CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. i, " We yesterday enjoyed an unexpected and splendid sight — The Russian Fleet from the BlaCk Sea sailed by the Se Granting says an Opposition paper) that BUONAPARTE: and his officers have quarrelled, the overthrow of their fleet will reconcile them." Most happy discovery! Is it not more likely that, exasperated at the folly of the expe- dition, both officers and men may vent their vengeance on him who has brought them into such difficulty and danger ? We lament exceedingly to hear that the Secession of Op- position is still to continue after the meeting of Parliament. As Physiognomists, we should have been glad to have seen their phizzes after NELSON'S Victory and O'CONNOR'S Con- fession. The Subscription at Lloyd's Coffee- house, for Admiral NELSON'S fleet, goes on rapidly. The Royal Exchange, and London Assurance Companies, have subscribed 100 gui- neas each, and he East India Company have voted rdool. Le Guillaume Tell, of 80 guns, La Justice, and La Diane frigates, which escaped, are arrived at Malta. yW/' W". guns, is arrived at Candia, where the others will be all taken before they - aglio, and through the Canal, to the Archipelago. The fleet has on board 4000 troops. Admiral NELSON, however, having defeated the French fleet, the Russians are expected first to attack the ci- devant Venetian Islands, and after tak- ing them; to attack Malta. ITALY, Sept. 16. War is expected soon to take place between France and Naples. The latter Power has 80,000 men under arms, More French troops are marching against the Frontiers of Naples, where, in addition to the Army already on foot, 5o, o0o Militia are raising. Sir SIDNEY SMITH is appointed to act with the Russian Fleet in the Mediterranean, and has sailed in the Tigre of 80 guns, for that purpose.

She set fire to my ship in four places and nothing but the most wonderful exertions extricated us from that perilous state. " With respect to our action, I shall only observe, that the Admiral and Captain had a good opinion of each other before the battle, and now we are more attached than ever. Every one exerted himself alike. " The Captains have each subscribed 30I. for the widows and orphans of those who fell so gloriously on the first of August; and the Admiral has given 1ool. The Captains have likewise subscribed 20l. a piece tor the purchase of a Sword to be presented t0 Sir HORATIO NELSON. We in tend to establish an Egyptian Club, to commemorate the GLORIOUS FIRST of AUGUST." The TURKISH AMbASSADOR'S house in Portman- square was illuminted brilliantly in every window ; a circumstance that fully confirms the hostility of the PORTE. The illuminations were, on Saturday night, general throughout the whole metropolis. There was a hearty good will in the people. The Theatres were superbly illuminated, and appropriate songs introduced. The following Verse, given by Lord GREY de WILTOn, was sung by Mr. DiGNUM, at Drurv- Lane Theatre : Fame, let thy Trumpet sound, Tell all the world around, Great GeoRGe is King ; Tell Holland, France, and Spain, All their vile arts are vain, NELSON now rules the Main, And GeORge is King Every man in . his country may address Admiral NeLSON with SHAKESPEARE, " HORATIO, thou art e'en as brave a man, " As e'er my understanding cop'd withal."

The CAPTURE of NINE Ships ot the LINE, in the late Glorious Victory, and adding them to the BRITISH FLEET, makes A difference of EIGHTEEN SHIPS of the Line in fa- vour of GREAT BRI+ AIN, which is FOUR more than Admi- ral NELSON'S fteet consisted of. , Whatever differences of opinion may subsist in this coun- try, as to the merits of this or that Administration, a man must be composed of strange materials, who does not reflect with pride on the victories of HOWE, JERVIS, DUNCAN, and NELSON ; by which alone, TWENTY EIGHT sail of the line were added to our Navy, making a difference in or favour of FIFTY six SHIPS of the LINE, besides several destroyed, and four great hostile fleets rendered incapable of executing their designs. There is no parallel to this in the history 0. any nation. „ ... The late glorious victory while it forms a legitimate fource of triumph to the Nation, exhibits this country in a J attitude the most Sublime and Terrible, hurling her bolts of vengeance on her insolent foes— securing the LIBERTIES of EUROPE, and asserting her Right to the UNIVERSAL EM- PIRE of the SEAS By the late memorable victory, GREAT BRITAIN has got the complete command of the MEDITERRANEAN, and the important trade to the LEVANT. . Admiral NELSON'S Letter is as creditable to the piety or the Writer, : s the Victory itself is glorious to him as a Sea- man. He begins his dispatch with attributing the glory at the victory to ALMIGHTY God. He does not like the im- pious General of the French, the Hero of Italy, use the name of the Most High, for the purposes of blaspheming him, or of denying his power. We trust, there is no BRITON whom the recital of the action did not excite a feeling Correspondent to that of the brave Writer. How different is the modest letter of the HERO of the NilE, from the gasconading accounts of the HERO of ITALY! In the simple and seaman- like Letter of the gallant NEL- SON, there is a devout and beautiful coincidence of expres- sion with the Conqueror or France, our Filth HARRY after his victory : O GOD, thy arm was here, " And not to us, but to thy arm alone, " Ascribe we all " Sir HORATIO NELSON is created BARON NELSON of the NILE— See Gazetterpage 118. Admiral nelson is a native of Norfolk. tie extract of a Letter from. Capt. BrOWN, of the KITE sloop ' of war, just arrived from Cuxhaven, dated Yarmouth U BUONAPARTE after having stormed Alexandria, had penetrated as far as Grand Cairo, where he found his situa- tion so unpleasant and dangerous, from the Turks and sick ness of his army, that he had sent orders for the fleet to hold, themselves in readiness to embark the troops. All the trans- ports and two or three frigates were in the harbour of Alex- andria, where thev will either be burnt by us or the Turks ; so that I think BUONAPARTE'S conquests are nearly at an end. On their arrival, it was intended to have got all the line- of- battle ships into the harbour also ; but it was found impossible for l'Orient to get in, and the Admiral would not consent to her being sent back to Toulon. They were therefore moored in the bay where they were attack- ed, and thought themselves so secure, that they never had an idea of the Britsh fleet daring to attack them. The French garrison at Alexandria saw the whole of the business, without having it in their power to assist.— Since the action we intercepted a boat with the dispatches, & c. All the letters, both public and private, are wrote in very low spirits, every body wishing to return, and the natives are so invete- rate against them, that they are obliged to send an escort of several hundred men with every courier, to prevent his be- ing cut to pieces." . - i 11 The efforts ot France since the revolution have all— ex- cept the expedition to Egypt— had some pretext besides that of ambition ( though, indeed, frequently a very bad one); but rhe invafion of Egypt was merely the effort of Ambition run Mad. ALEXANDER, or CHARLES the Twelfth never a-- tempted a wilder expedition ; and DON QUIXOTE, who as a private madman, on his own account, never embarked more uselessly in any projeCt. We hear from Leith, Glasgow, Perth, Dundee, Stirling, Aberdeen, Ayr, Montrose, Greenock, Paisley, Dunfermline, Inverary , Alloa, Irvine, & c.& c. and many other places of Scotland, that Admiral NELSON'S Victory was cele- brated with the greatest demonstrations of joy. Feu de joies were fired by the Volunteers, Yeomanry, and Fencibles, and the loyalty of the people was every where conspicuous. Scarcely a Village or House that was not illuminated. On Friday, the 6th or NORFOLK Regiment of fencible Cavalry, commanded by the Hon. Col. HARBOARD, were drawn up in the Barrack- yard Piers Hill, in honour of the unequalled victory atchieved by Admiral NELSON, who dates his nativity from the same county to which this regt ment belongs.— The word was given by Lieut.- Col. ASTLEY member for the county of Norfolk j and the regiment fired three excellent vollies, and expressed their joyful feelings by loud acclamations of applause. In the evening the barracks were brilliantly illuminated ; on the front of the officers Pa- vilion, under the Royal Arms, there appeared in large illu- minated characters- The NORFOLK HERO, AND BRITISH NAVY At the Gateway of the barracks, a beautiful trum- phal arch was formed, of oak boughs, fancifully intersper- sed with variegated lamps, which had a charming effeCt.- iTn w Ae. sd' » Ss » . t," irflty'iPeBl'^ Ke evening verv happily, and showed they heartily partook of the general joy occa- sioned by the triumphs of their gallant countryman.

DUBLIN, 0( 1. 4. " The melancholy scenes which many parts of the coun- try south of Dublin exhibit, are highly distressing. The Irish Papers contain a lilt of murders and robberies that would be a disgrace to any nation or age in wkich they could happen The savage ferocity that characterised this king- dom id days when general barbarity prevailed, appears to be rivalled at present in. the most dreadful acts of cruelty and disorder. All manner of moral principle seems extinct in certain classes of the people. Religious and political feuds, instead of being softened by time, appear to gain force daily, and where they may end, if not speedily checked, it is hard to tell. Certain, however, it is, that honest men of every persuasion, and of every opinion in politics, should with heart and hand suppose the further progress of such unheard of cruelties, which draw down execrations on the heads of those concerned in them, and bring infamy on us as a nation. " Yesterday the Cork mail coach was attacked between Redgap and Killcullen by about fifty armed rebels, com manded by a fellow named O'Neil. Two dragoons who attended, the mail- coach, made a most gallant defence, but were at length overpowered and the mail carried off j the passengers, guard, coachman, and dragoons were permitted to continue their journey without further injury or interrup- tion. " Three Protestant Yeomen of the Mountkennedy Corps, were on Thursday night last cruelly murdered ; they had been dismissed from permanent duty, and were in the mid- dle of the night set upon by an armed body of Rebels as they lay asleep in their houses ; they were brothers of the name of Bryan, and men of exemplary conduct and singular loyalty. " Some of the leaders of the Rebellion, have given di- rections, that the life of no Protestant, from the cradle to the crutch, should be spared. " The bold and sanguinary extent to which Holt and his banditti carry on their depredations, almost exceeds credi- bility. We learn, that in the neighbourhood of Monaste- reven and Athy they have committed several robberies, burn- ed some houses, and murdered a Mrs. Larktn and a Mr. Anderson, who resided within a few miles of the former place. " The Mayor, Sheriffs, and Common Council of the CITY of CORK, on account of the Public conduct of Mr. GRAT- TAN, and that his name may be consigned to oblivion, have resolved that the STreet hithero named GRATTAN- STREET, Is in future to be called DUNCAN STREET, after the gallant Admiral of that name." COURT MARTIAL. . Mathew Tone, brother to the notorious Theobald Wolfe Tone, arraigned on a former day, for traiterously, rebelliously, and hostilely acting against his Majesty's Government, was put to trial. He objected to being tried by a Court Martial. The Court over- ruled the objections, and the trial then pro- ceeded. Michael Burke sworn, deposed that. dja witness that he quitted, this kingdOm about four or five years ago for France, where he had been taken as an English spy and committed to prison, in which he remained for nine months ; that he effected his escape and embarked for America, where he arrived ; there he met Hamilton Rowan, who informed the prisoner that his brother Theobald Wolfe Tone was in Paris.— This information persuaded him to seek his bro- ther, whom, after his embarkation from America he accord ingly met in Paris : there he remained until the projected invasion against this kingdom, when he with other Irish Gentlemen took leave on their separate routs to six different destinations, from whence armaments were intended to be fitted out for the invasion of this country. That the priso- ner told witness he embarked at Rochelle for this kingdom, in the capacity of a French Officer. Witness saw the pri- oner on the Monday after his arrival at Castlebar, marshal- ing the Rebels who had joined the French, in Lord Lu- CAN's lawn ; who then remarked, " That it was extremely unfortunate for them ( the French) to join with so savage dis- posed a people," ( meaning the Rebels,) " whose minds attachment to the French.

" We lament exceedingly that we are to announce to the public, the death of Capt. Russel of the Prince of Wales's Fencibles. He was taken prisoner the 5th inst. at Tubbercuran by the French, and though in the hands of our natural enemy, a ruthless assassin, in the most treache- rous manner, shot him in the back, of which wound he lingered for some days, and at length terminated a life de- voted to the service of his King and Country for upwards of fifty years. He was in the 70th year of his age.
