VOL. LXX. i EDTNBURG THE NO. 3G3O. ADVERTISE From TUESDAY OCTOBER 9, to FRIDAY OCTOBER 12, 1798. THURSDAY', POST. From the LONDON PAPERS, Ot7. 8. LONDON THE Naval Battle of Abukir, owing to the ' consequences which mav attend it, forms a New Epoch in the history of the times; 1 The victory of Admiral NELSON is the very thing which induced the PORTE to . declare war against France— a country with which it had so long lived in friend ship and alliance. It is now going to send troops against BUONApARTE to Egypt. The east of Europe, which remained hitherto quiet, is now at war against France.— Citizen RUFFIN. the French ambassador, having been thrown into the Castle of the Seven Towers at Constanti- nople. we are curious to learn what will be be fate of the Turkish Ambassador at Paris. Abukir, called Bikirre, or Bequieres, bv the Europeans, is a village, situate four leagues from Alexandria on a large Bay.. where ships may safely lie at anchor. It has a citadel and a garrison. Even in the battle of Abuker the usual ma- noeuvre of the English was first, to take the Admiral's ship, Or to destroy it, in order to confuse the command and the sig- nals among he enemy's fleet. They attacked the L'Orient in the most violent manner. The Declaration of war, which the GRAND SEIGNIOR has published against France is one of the strongest that has is- sued frOm the Turkish Chancery for a long time the French are stiled " treacherous, faithless infidels." This Declaration excited the people oi Constantinople to a kind of fu^ y • iguiti!' the French, who are all pu' under arreff, and no longer ap- pear in puSt c. The Egyptians were preparing to rise in a mass against BuONAPARTE'S troops. The Pacha of Syria distinguishes himself the most by his attachment to the POrTE, and by using all his endeavours to irritate the inhabitants against the French ; and to encourage the Pachas to follow his ex- ample. he has collected a large body of horse to oppose the Republicans. The Officers of the Russian fleet which passd the Dar- danels, into the Archipelago, on the first of September, were, during their short stay at Constatinople, received by the Ottoman Government with the most flattering expres- sions of friendship and respect. Corfu is stated as the first object of attack, and after the reduction of the other ci- de- vant Venetian Islands Malta is to. be invested. Great chan- ges are expected to take place in Italy, Dalmatia, and the Levant Admiral NELSON has sent the captured ships to Gibral- tar, where some of them are said to be arrived, and ij blocking up the harbour of ALexandria, in which two ships of war, formerly Venetian, and all the transports, have taken refuge. Capt. TROWBriBGE. with six or seven ships, is to be left behind to block up Alexandria, and prevent the enemy from receiving any reinforcements, at the same time pro- per means are to be provided for the destruction of the . French transports, and their interception in case of any at- tempt made to escape. Nothing can exceed the chagrin of Capt. Trowbridge on the accident, occasioned, in some measure, by extreme ar- dour, which ran the Culloden on shore, and deprived him of the share which he would otherwise have had in the danger and glory of the battle. The accident, however, may in some respects have been propitious, as it was a guide to the other ships of the division, how nearly they could approach. On board L'Orient which blew up was the general War- Chest of the Fleet, containing several Millions in Ready Money. The English entertain hopes that they shall be able to find and weigh up this chest. On board of the Nine Ships of the Line that are taken were many important papers, instruments and machines. It is a very pleasing circumstance that the Lion, of 64 guns, must have joined Sir HORATIO NeLSON'S Fleet not long after the Action, with an immense supply of stores of every kind, which of course most have put not only the gal- lant Admiral's own detachment bound to England but the squadron left in Bequieres Bay into complete repair, befides adding to it the force of a 64 gun ship. capt. WeSTCOTe, who has fallen in the late engagement Under Admiral NELSON, was A brave and an honourable man, and by his merits raised himself from a very humble station. Letters from Switzerland, of the 14th ult. state, that in the late conflicts between the french and Swiss in that country, the former lost four thousand men If the Swiss had acted with unanimity, there is no doubt but the French would have been all put to the sword ; but unfortunately they are much divided by religious disputes. The Deputation of the Empire have published their Conclusion in answer to the last French Notes. The Depu- tation, demand the renunciation on the part of France or a claims to the territories of Kehl and Cassel as well as of a very species of possession, and every point of contact on the right bank of the Rhine. . The TiSiphone and- Scorpion sloops,' and Griffin cutter are arrived at Yarmouth with three Dutch schu 7., prizes The two last packet brought over near 100,000 in specie and bullion from hamburgh His Majesty's ship Grampus, of 54 guns, Capt. Saun- derson-. and the Proselyte, of 32 guns, Capt. Falk, are ar- rived at Plymouth, along with the Jamaica and Cape Ni- chola Mole fleets, consisting of 41 sail of ships. The Chance. of Leith, Capt. Bishop, became so leaky at sea, that the crew were obliged to abandon her, after having set her on fire: except this vessel and another, the whole fleet have reached the Channel. A SPY GLASS FOUND.

The Ceres chaced on the 1st June La Mutinie French privateer brig, of 18 guns, and 150 men, to windward of St Juan; but, from the state of the weather and shoal water, was unable, for some days, to take pos- session. of her; the crew, in the interim, had warped her close in shore for the purpose of defending her from the beach : Captain Otway, however sent his boats the very first moment the weather permitted, ( covering them with the Ceres) under the command of Lieut. Wooldridge, The j enemy having set fire to her quitted, and formed in great numbers on the beach, keeping up a very heavy fire the boats ; while taking possession of her, and striking the co- lours, some of the Ceres shot having taken place below her water line, shs filled, which making it impracticable to bring her off, the fire was permitted to take effect. The St. Josef de Victorioso, of eight guns ( but pierced for 16) and 5o men, from Europe, was chaced on shore bv the Acasta six leagues to windward of St. Juan : the boats of which sh p being fent to take possession, and finding it impossible to bring her off, set fire to and completely destroyed her. The Ceres chaced to windward on the morning of the 6th of May a sail to the eastward into the Mona Passage. Intel- ligence was received, upon which was placed great depen dence, that the French privateers were doing incredible mil- chief off the N. E. end of Porto Rico, and of two spanish frigates being daily expected at St. Juan ; we immediately proceeded thither, and made all the above captures off that port, but both ships being extremely short of provisions and water, the Ceres not having more than two days of all spe- cies on board, I thought it most advisable under the exist- ing circumstances, to recruit at St. Thomas's ; to which island we made the best of our way, and returned in four days from the time we left our former station to it again. I am forry to add that the day previous to our arrival at St Thomas's, one of the enemy's frigates ( the Venus, got into, St. Juan, . the other we are anxiously looking for, and you may rely upon our remaining out until the last moment, in hopes of falling in with her ; having this moment captured a Polacre ship from St. Juan, bound to Vera Cruz, under Greek colours, affords me the opportunity of sending this letter, which ought to have gone by the last prize, but by some accident was left behind. Lieut Denman will be able to give you every information respecting both ships you may wish for. The Ceres is now in chace, and has made the signal for an enemy which we take to be a privateer brig. I have the honour to be. & c. RICHARD LANE. REGULUS, Cape Nichola Mole, SIR, _ July 17, 1798. I HAVE the honour to inform you, that on the 11th inst. having discovered five vessels at anchor in Aguada Bay, • • the north west end of the island of Porto Rico, I manned La Pouline, a french schooner, of 4 guns, and 31 men, which I had captured a few days before, and sent her, toge- ther with the boats of the Regulus, under the command of Lieut. Good, to endeavour to cut them out, proceeding in with the ship for their protection and support the wind un- fortunately failing, neither the Regulus or schooner could get in near enough to be of any material service, the whole effort consequently fell upon the boats ; and it is with great satisfaction I have to add, that through the judicious arrange ment and very spirited Conduct of Lieutenant Good, well supported by Lieut. Holman and the junior officers and men under their command, three ot the largest vessels, con- sisting of A ship, a brig, and an armed schooner, wee brought away, and had there been the smallest breath of wind, the same would have been the case with the other two, both which were also boarded, and in our possession for a considerable time, but it falling a dead calm at the moment the cables were cut, and not having boats sufficient to tow so many vessels, it became necessary to quit some, in order to secure those which appeared of the most impor, tance. I have great pleasure in representing to you the very good conduct and determined bravery which was conspicuously shewn by every officer and man in the boarding and towing out these vessels under a very heavy and incessant fire from the batteries, close to which they had previously been brought as a security from such an attempt. I am sorry in concluding, to be obliged to acquaint you with the loss which We have sustained in Mr. Thomas Finch, Master's Mate, a very promising young man. who was kill- ed by a grape shot from one ot the batteries, and was he only person hurt upon this occasion. I have the honour to be, & c. GEORGE EYRE. From the LONDON PAPERS, Oct. 9. LONDON. No certain intelligence has yet been received respecting the Brest squadron. The Triton frigate arrived at Plymouth on Saturday, which ship was said to have been chaced a few days before by two French ships of war, supposed to be part of the enemy's fleet. It is said that some fresh accounts have been received from the Squadron under the command of Sir JOHN BORLASE WARREN, whs was left in pursuit of the fleet which lately sailed from Brest. A report is current that Admiral KINGSMILL. has fallen in with the Brest squadron and destroyed it— but there seems. no foundation for the report. An Express arrived at Yarmouth on Thursday, for Admi ral Lord DUNCAN O sail immediately, in consequence of a report of the Dutch fleet being out.— Though the wind was at East, the Noble Admiral worked out in less than two hours. In consequence of the British Victory, the Bank Paper ,. t Vienna had risen five per cent. When the Jamaica convov left St. Domingo on the 7th of August. the evacuation of Jeremie was just about taking place, and it was supposed that soon after Cape Nichola Mole would likewise be abandoned. Every thing was quiet at the Islands, but they continued unhealthy. The following curious paragraph faithfully translated from the French Paper Le Clef du Cabinet of the 7th Vende- miaire, 28th September) we recommend to the perusal of the Opposition ; as they have so often made a Common Cause with the French, the latter seem to have taken this occasion of expressing their Alliance with them : " The English mob is, it is said, much satisfied with the victory which NELSON has gained over our squadron, and the British Administration is careful to add as much as possible to the general satisfaction. But NELSON was sent out against Buonaparte throw obstacles in the way of the great expedition 1 has he prevented this expedition from being attended with that success which we might have ex- pected from it ?— This is a question which the English, who know how to think, ask one another. It was not the busi- ness of the English Admiral to destroy some of the French Ships and to lose a great number of his own ; and if the Opposition Party preserve any of their energy, this Admiral will have much difficulty in justifying his conduct.'". The illuminations have been general all over the kingdom, except at Bath and Dorchester. The worthy Mayors of which prohibited any illuminations, on pretence of mobs.— The same worthy Mayor of Bath, generously contributed Two Guineas for the Wounded Soldiers and Sailors in Ad- miral NELSON'S fleet. Saturday a large sum of money, in new coined Guineas and Half Guineas, were sent from the Mint in the Tower to the Bank. in consequence of some words between Capt. C and the Reverend C—— C , both Gentlemen of Ipswich, a challenge was sent by the Captain, and accepted by Mr. C . On Saturday morning the parties met on the race ground, and the accustomed forms having taken place, Capt.. O. fired at his antagonist which happily missed. The Re- verend Gentleman, whose turn it was to fire, discharged his pistol in the air, and the affair ended. Yesterday an Elephant was sold at Garraway's, by public auction, for 255!.

In the next page we have th pleasure to present our Read- ers with an ENGRAVED PLAN of the late GLORIOUS BAT- TLE, taken by an OFFICER on the spot, which conveys a much more accurate and distinct idea of that MEMORABLE EVENT than any thing we have hitherto published. As a number of persons will probably wish t0 preserve this Paper, along wiih the ADVERTISER or Friday last, containing the LONDON GAZETTE EXTRAORDINARY, we have subjoined to the PLAN, such authentic particulars as are worthy of being handed down to Posterity. The LONDON GAZETTE, received this day, contains a number of Captures by the BRITISH NAVY.— See the two first columns ot this page. A letter from the best authority states, that the late Alliance betwixt RUSSIA and the- OTTOMAN PORTE, is without any conditions, either Cession of Territory by the Turks, or in- crease of Commercial Privileges ; the CZAR asking only pro- visions for his forces by land and sea.— The first object of the RUSSIANS and TURKS, is to dispossess PASSWAN OGLOU of Widdin, and afterwards to proceed to the Mediterra- nean, to destroy the French Power there.

So little prepared were the French ships on the land side, that even their guns were not shotted. When Le Guillaume Tell and Le Genereux, with the two frigates, fled from the scene of action, the Zealous, com- manded by Capt. HOOD, with a noble ardour pursued them., and was actually firing upon both the line- of- battle ships, when the Admiral judged it prudent to call him back to the fleet. The number of the enemy killed, wounded, and burnt in the battle of the Nile, was FIVE THOUSAND Two HUNDRED and TWENTY- SIX. The prisoners taken by Adm. NELSON, according to the return made by the British Commissary, ?- mounted to THREE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED and FIVE. Admiral NSLSON'S loss in killed and wounded, was EIGHT HUNDRED and NINETY- FIVE. The example of two fleets fighting in such a position, stands single in the annals of the Navy. The manoeuvre of Breaking the Line, formerly considered as the most desperate attempt, appears now to be reduced to a system, and has hitherto been practised, if not with ease, at least with certainty and success. The skill of our seamen in working their ships, gives out fleets a superiority in their performance of this, which the fleets of no other nation have presumed to emulate. We have no difficulty in saying, that of all the great and glorious Naval Victories that have been obtained during the course of the present war, or in any preceding one, that of Sir HORATIO NELSON is the greatest and most brilliant. There has been no action in which the enemy has sustained so great a loss, and none perhaps in which so much enter- prize, skill, and intrepidity were displayed in the attack. In the open sea, a lesser force may frequently attack a larger to advantage, from the one being in a compact line, and the other dispersed over a wide extent ; but here every ship of the enemy was certain of coming into action, and af- ter a plan of the attack had been formed and executed, all skill in manoeuvring, to which we are supposed to owe much of our superiority, was at an end, and the success of the action seems to have depended upon the cool and determined courage with which each BRITISH SHIP took its station, and the superior effort and gallantry with which our Fleet main- tained the conflict. Let the BRITISH NATION join in the Pious Sentiment of the great and good commander of our Fleet upon this signal occasion, and with all due humility offer up our grateful ac- knowledgements to ALMIGHTY GOD, who has upon this, as on many former occasions, showered his gracious bles- sing on tbe BRITISH ARMS.

DARBY, of the Bellerophon, intended haVing his ship upon the bow of the French Admiral's ship, l'Orient, but by some accident she swung upon her broadside. and in that situation she sustained the heavy fire of L'Oriet till that ship blew up. L'Orient blew up about ten o'clock at night— the Belle rophon was dismasted— The Alexander had suffered much both in the action and by the explosion. but nobly bore up for French ships in the rear of their line, which were at- tacked in succesion by our ships as their opponents had struck in the Van. When the British Squadron was standing into the Bay on the afternoon of 1st all the french Captains were drink- ing coffee with their Admiral on board L'Orient, and they The changes which have lately taken place in the Divan, are in consequence of several members of it having been de- tected in taking immerse bribes from the French, to prevent war being openly declared against the Republic, and it it was declared, to take no effectual measures against BUONAPARTE. We can state on the best authority, that every dispatch which BUONAPARTE has written since he arrived in Egypt has been intercepted ; and we have the pleasure to Know that they contain the most unpleasant accounts of his own situation. Amongst the papers intercepted bv Admiral NELSON is a letter from Gen. BUONAPARTE to his brother, LUCIeN BU- ONAPARTE, Member of the Council of Five Hundred. It contains interesting details respecting his expedition, his si- tuation, and the consequences of the destruction of the French fleet. He complains bitterly of the French Government, which deceived him in regard to the disposition of the inha- bitants - of Egypt, and the means of succeeding in his enter- prize. He represents his situation as extremely critical, from the diminution of his army, by diseases, by the battles he is continually obliged to fight, by the detachments re- quired to preserve the communication between Cairo Roset- ta, and Alexandria, by the garrisons of these towns. and adds these words—" My position is such, that I can neither advance nor retreat." Some letters of inferior consequence have been, taken, one of them from Citizen TALLIEN to his wife in france, points out every hardship they have encountered and adds, " Every Frenchman here asserts that the Directory wish BUONAPARTE dead, for till then there will be no peace, and, on that account, they sent him with this army." * By a letter from on board Lord NELSON'S ship, we are informed, that the Admiral's wound in the forehead, near the eye, was at first considered as dangerous. But all ap. - prehensions are now removed, though i will leave a con- siderable scar, more honourable t0 that Hero than all the coronets, stars, and ribbands with which be can ever be decorated. Admiral, now BARON NELSON of the Nile, is the son of the Rev. Mr. NELSON, Rector of Burnham Thorpe, T H E E D I N B U R GH near Holkham, in Norfolk, and is said to be related to the Walpole family. Admiral NELSON entered early into the service, was a Lieutenant in 1777. and a Post Captain in 1779. - Lady Nelson wass the widow of a West Indian gentleman, and niece to Mr. Herbert, late Governor of Nevis, where she was married to Sir Horatio, and given away by the Duke of Clarence.. The Rev. Mr. NELSON, the father of the gallant Admiral, resides at Round Wood Farm, near Ipswich, beloved and respected by his neighbours. Lady NELSON, since the ab- sence of her husband, has dwelt with him. When Admiral NELSON was last introduced to the King, his Majesty lamenting the Admiral's wounds, said, " You have lost your right arm."—" but not my right hand," exclaimed the Admiral as I have the honour of present- ing Capt. Berry to your Majesty " Much noise has been made for ages about the Source of the Nile, but its Mouth, thanks to Admiral NELSON, will nOW be more famous in history than eVer its Source has been. For the Source of the Nile let philosophers seek, What need we to know but its name ? for NELSON'S brave action shall forcibly speak, That its Mouth's are the Sources of Fame J. B. It is no gascanade in the French Directory to prophesy, that " their fleets must shew themselves more terrible after the moment of disaster ;" for they are then manned with British Tars commanded by British Captains. Yesterday was observed with great festivity by many gen- tlemen, being the GLORIOUS ELEVENTH cf OCTOBER, when Admiral DUNCAN gained a complete victory over the frenCH FLEET, which among other important consequen- ses, prevented, according to the testimony of O'Connor and his Associates, the INVASION Of IRELANd by the French and the Dutch. THE NATIONAL DEBT. The following important particulars are taken from the REPORT of the SELECT COMMITTEE of FINANCE : The National Debt on the 5th April, 1798, was L. 397,087,674 : 13 : 5£ d, and the total annual charge there- of, including Annuities and the sums applicable to the re- duction thereof, were L. 17,795,160 : 4 : ail. The amount of the sum redeemed by the Commissioners for reducing the National Debt was, between the first of July 1786, and the 1st of May, 1798, no less than THIRTY- ONE MILLIONS THREE HUNDRED and NINE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED and EIGHTY- TWO POUNDS. The sum annually applicable to the Reduction of the National Debt, amounted on the 1st of May, 1798, to L. 9,919,8733 1od, which, at the present price of the 3 per cents, will purchase near EIGHT MILLIONS per annum. From the accumulation of interest, the Sinking Fund for reducing the National Debt, will now increase with amaz- ing rapidity ; and One per Cent, being paid to the Commis- sioners for all the New Debt that has been borrowed this war, or will be borrowed afterwards ; this will reduce the New Debt with still more rapidity than the Old— and the reduc- tion goes on in the same manner in War as in Peace. The Surplus of the Consolidated Fund in this quarter is upward of A MILLION STERLING— this is no bad accompa- niment to NELSON'S victory. It is said, that in the Chancellor of the Exchequer's pro- ject of finance for the opening of Parliament, one article will be a plan for the sale of the House and Window Taxes, in the same way as the Land Tax is now offered to the Pub- lic : And another, a round tax an personal property, to the discovery of which, through all its ramifications, he has now a perfect key. IRELAND. IRISH PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Thursday, Oct. 5. " Lord CASTLSREAGH rose to call the attention of the House to a subject which must fill every mind with satisfaction — the important and decided victory obtained by the gallant Admiral Sir HORATIO NELSON over the French Fleet in the Mediterranean ; a victory, at this crisis the most glorious to the BRITISH ARMS, and most important to EUROPE; The. annals of the British Navy, enriched as they are by innu- merable triumphs, furnished scarcely one so complete in its nature, so important in its consequences, or so glorious to the Empire as the present. It was obtained by a force con-, siderably inferior to the enemy, through that characteristic, spirit and gallantry of the Officers and Seamen which Has ever rendered Great Britain invincible on her native element. It was a blow irretrieveable to the Naval Strength of the ene- my ; and while it would teach France to humiliate her am- bitious hope of ever being able to cope with the Naval Power of GREAT BRITAIN, it would exhibit to France, and the Surrounding world the strength and resources of the BRITISH EMPIRE, and give new energy to the spirit of the BRITISH NATION, at he same time that it would render GREAT BRI- TAIN the rallying point for the dispirited Monarchs of Eu- rope, who would, it was to be hoped, from this glorious event, gather courage to unite their scattered strength against the common enemy of all settled governments, and crush him in that, quarter where only he could pretend to claim any, su- periority— namely, in his Land Force. For if these Mo- , narchs hoped to negotiate themselves out of the difficulties in which they were involved by France, they would find themselveS most miserably deceived, and have bitter cause to repent that despondence and pusillanimity which now de- graded them to a crouchant humiliation at the feet of France, and for which they should atone to their subjects and to the civilized world, by rallying round GREAT BRITAIN, and by a gallant and united effort, rescue themselves from the insolent and dictatorial tyranny of the French Yoke. His Lordship concluded by three successive motions for the thanks of the House to be presented— first to Si- HORATIO NELSON, Bart K. B. Admiral of the Blue, for his brilliant Victory over the french fleet in the Mediterranean, on the THRICE GLO- RIOUS and EVER- MEMORABLE FIRST OF AUGUST.— Second- ly, to the gallant Officers of the Fleet and, thirdly, to the brave Soldiers and Seamen under his command, for the valour evinced by them on this glorious occasion. These motions, which were seconded by the Right Hon. CHAN- CELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, were agreed to unanimously. " Lord CASTLEREAGH again rose and observed, that while the House paid its tribute to our brave soldiers and seamen for their gallant conduct abroad, it was impossible to pass by the gallant and arduous services of our troops at home, without paying that tribute; of applause so justly due to their meritorious. conduct. In adverting to the respective con- duct of the different branches of the army, there was one which certainly challenged the first notice : It was the brave YEOMANRY CORPS of IRELAND, whose services had effected the salvation of this country and our glorious Con stitution. ' " Next to the Yeomanry the gallant conduct of the BRI- TISH MILITIA Regiments challenged the gratitude of the nation ; those brave corps, though only obliged by law to serve in their native country, yet the moment they heard that Ireland was in danger, impressed by a sense of loyal duty to the common Sovereign, and regard to the safety and happiness of the British Empire, they gallantly volun- teered their services, and solicited to be sent hither for the defence of Ireland. After paying like compliments to the Other Military Corps, his lordship moved, that the ap probation and thanks of that House be expressed to the Yeomanry, Militia, and other troops in Ireland, for their loyal, patriotic, and gallant conduct during the Rebellion." This motion was also seconded by the Right Hon. the Chan cellor of the Exchequer, and passed unanimously. " Passed a Resolution for a Vote of Credit not. exceeding One Million sterling, to be granted for the support of any exi gency during the Recess of Parliament. DUBLIN, Oct. 6. " The enthusiasm of joy with which the glorious news of yesterday was received, afforded to the Citizens of Dublin a degree of gratification to which they had for a long time been strangers ; even the rankest rebel in society dared not to evince any sorrow for the disasters of the French. To those who are still capable of Treason, the ill fortune of their friends is motive enough to disclaim the alliance. The most brilliant illuminations took place, Chearfulness and gaiety enlivened the whole evening ; parties of Gentlemen paraded the streefs to A late hour in the night singing " God Save the King," " Croppies lie down," and other loyal songs. Bonfires, and every other appearance of rejoicing, were profusely conspicuous throughout the whole city. " Tuesday night, the Derry Mail was stopped between Ardee and Collon, by three men well armed, who carried it entirely away, with the horse upon which it was con veying. " The house of Valentine Dunn, Esq; at Dundrum, was broke open and plundered on Friday night last. That of Alderman Trulock near Ball's- bridge, was completely rifled on the preceding night. " The Rev. Dr. Ryan fortified his house in the county of Wicklow against plunderers ; but finding Holt's party grow- ing daily more formidable, he quitted his house, and offered it and his offices as a barrack to Government. The rebels having heard of this offer, set fire to the Doctor's house in three places on Friday last ; the fire was soon extinguished by the activity of his neighbours.— On the same day the house of Mr. Butler, the Doctor's neighbour, and a Yeoman, was burned to the ground. " At the Assizes in Ireland, the trials have been very numerous, and many persons convicted of murders, rob- beries, & c. had sentence pronounced upon them according to their various crimes. " Last week, Mr. Parsley, his wife and son, went to their farm at Templeodigan, to attend their harvest, but they were attacked at night by the Insurgents, and Mr. Parsley is since dead of his wounds and the widow and son are scarcely alive. All the Protestants in that country and Old Ross, have fled into town, and left their proper- ties, at the mercy of the Rebels. '< A Petition has been presented to the Irish House of Commons, from the Freeholders of King's County, pray- ingi that no person who has been engaged in the rebellion shall be allowed to carry arms ; and that every one claiming a right to the elective franchise, shall take an oath that he has not been an United Irishman, a Defender, or in any way engaged in the Rebellion." The speech of HENRY IV. to the Prince of WALES con- tains , the arguments we may vary naturally imagine passed in the Directory of France when they planned BUONA- PARTE'S expedition to Egypt. ' Human nature is nearly the same in all. ages", and none could paint it with more truth than SHAKESPEARE- . — " Heaven knows, my friends, By what by paths, and indirect crooked ways, We met this dignity ; and we ourselves know well How troublesome it fits upon our heads. It seems in us On Wednesday the Magistates and Council of Edinburgh resolved to transmit a congratulatory address to his MAjes- TY, on the late glorious victory of his MaJesTy's un- der the command of Admiral Lord NELSON of the NILE ; and have requested a meeting of the principal inhabitants, , relative to the opening a subscription for relief of the wi- dows, families, and relatives of the seamen and marines killed or wounded on board Lord NELSON'S fleet; and au- thorized the Lord Provost, in name of the community, to subscribe One Hundred Guineas. But as an honour snatch'd with boisterous hand, And we have many living to upbraid Our gain of it by their assistances. We are not firm enough, since griefs are green And all out friends, which we must make our friends, Have but their stings and teeth newly ta'en out, By whose fell working we were first advanced, And by whose power we well may lodge a fear To be again displac'd : Which to avoid, We'll cut them off, and have a purpose now To send out many to the Holy Land, Lest rest and lying still. may make them look Too near into our state. therefore, my friends, Be it our course to busy giddy minds With Foreign Quarrels ; that Faction hence born out May waste the memory of former days."

North Berwick, See. At Gatehouse of Fleet, Mr. MURRAY of BROUGHTON, proprie- tor at that Burgh, and the Estates adjacent, ordered an excellen- Bullock to be killed, and served up in a dinner to the inhabitants of the Town and neighbourhood, in order that the late very im- portant Victory might be celebrated with every possible festivity. Accordingly on the 8th inst. upwards of four hundred persons of respectability Were entertained by Mr. MURRAY on the street of the town with an elegant dinner, and as much ale and punch as they chose to accept of. Mr. MURRAY gave an elegant enter- tainment also to a number of Gentlemen in the burgh and neigh- bourhood, whom he honoured with his company till a late hour. Many Loyal and Constitutional Toasts were drunk on the occa- sion, and accompanied by vollies of the LOYAL GATEHOUSE VOLUNTEERS, commanded by Capt. BIRTWHISTLE, who in the forenoon had a grand field- day in honour of the occasion. In the evening the burgh was splendidly illuminated, as was also Mr. Murray's mansion- house at Cally, and several devices of transpa- rency, applicable to the glorious event, were displaycd in the windows of the burgh. Every sentiment of loyalty and attach- ment to our unrivalled Constitution was displaycd on the occasion, ' and the day was concludcd with the utmost decorum and propriety. 1 PORTPATRICK, 9th Oct. 1798. •' The rejoicings here for ADMIRAL NELSON'S victory were be- yond all Former example. The expression of loyalty was un- bounded, and was the more pleasing as it was unpremeditated. The Rev. Mr. MACKENZIE, Minister of this place, gave the signal, by illuminating the Manse, and, in less than a quarter of an hour, the whole town was in a blaze. The public offices, the Customs," the Excise, the Post- office, and the office of the Inspector Gene- ral, were splendid. The Custom House in particular, which . stands in the centre of the town, was lighted on all sides, and afforded no bad representation of the French Admiral's ship on flames, the Youth of the place completed the Glory by con- verting, amidst repeated huzzas, a tar barrel into a bonfire. " the company then adjourned to the Inspector's Office when the General began a round of Toasts truly patriotic, such as, May the Land of Egypt always lead to the House of Bondage May, the French Armies be thrown to the Arabs— May Admiral NELSON long live to beat the French with one hand— May the Red Sea, if they should attempt it, continue to overwhelm the Enemies of God, & & c. I have only to add, that, as the night began with patriotism, it ended with Religion. The moment the clock struck twelve, ( saturday night) the lights were extinguished, and the company rose to prepare themsleves for joys more devout; and to express an atitude more soLomn, such are the exercises of the Real Illu- minati, and such the respect entertained here for the Sabbath." The Gentlemen of CALLAnder assembled on Monday eVening to celebrate NELSOn's Victory, round a blazing bonfire in the Square, whose flashes brightened the skies and overtopt the houses. The bands of muslic belonging to five recruiting parties, with the Volunteers of the place, and others, marched round to keep off the multitude. Many loyal and constitutional toasts were drank, under repeated vollies of musquetry, commanded by two officers of the army, the ringing of bells, and loud acclamations; particu- larly,. The King and Royal Family— The Ministry and Parlia- ment— The gallant Admiral NELSON, and may the gratitude of his country equal his merit— His brave Officers and Tars, and may they emulate his prowess— Lord HowE— Lord ST. VINCENT — Lord Keith— Lord DUNCAN—. The glorious 1st of August 1798— The Navy and Army, long may they be the pride of their country, and the terror of its enemies— May the British flag sweep the seas from the Thames to the Ganges— A meeting between Lord BRIDPORt and the Brest fleet— The Viceroy of Ireland and his Army— the Lord Lieutenant of the County, his Deputies, and Assistants— Lord Perth and the CALLANDER VOLUNTEERS — the Plough, and success to Agriculture— Manufactures and Commerce— A good sale to Cattle. The company marched to the Star Inn, the illuminations on either hand making the street clear as day, where the same toasts were repeated ; and the even- ing concluded with a ball, which the Ladies did them the honour to attend. The following paragraph is copied from a London paper: FORGERY ON THE BANK OF ENGLAND. In consequence of forged Bank Notes being put in circulation in different parts of Lancashire, measures were, taken to trace from whence they had been issued; and a variety of circumstan- ces transpired to mark out Mr. J— C—, as an object of suspicion. On Wednesday last a number of Peace Officers went to his house at Whiston, near Prescot, Lancashire, and took him into custody, and on the premises they seized the copperplates from which the forged Notes appear to have been printed, together with a num- ber of counterfeits in various stages, some with complete impres- sions, and others, in an unfinished state. and also different tools, supposed to have been made use of in forming and graving the plates, besides paper resembling that issued by the Bank ; ink, a rolling- press, and, in short, every implement and material ne- cessary for carrying on this nefarious employment. After a long examination before a Magistrate, Mr. C. was committed to gaol for a further hearing. Mr. C. is a man of considerable property, sufficient for his support in a respeCtable stile of independency.— He is about fifty- two years of age. He has given evident proofs of an almost unlimited versatility in the mechanic arts, joining a quickness of invention with a facility and exactitude of execu- tion that have been seldom found to unite in the same person.— By directing these rare talents to their proper objeCt, he unques- tionably might hare rendered himself not only opulent, but res- pectable in that society, which are supposed to hare suffered by his former practices. He has for many years been suspeCted as a counterfeiter of the current coin. All that is within the compass of manual operation, this man's ingenuity is supposed to be compe- tent to perform. The most complicated pieces of machinery are, on the first view, familiar to his comprehension He was brought up to the business ot a watchmaker ; he projected and executed many engines for cutting out from the metal wheels and other parts of watches and clocks thereby greatly abridging manual la- bour. He is esteemed an exceeding skilful engineer, particularly in the construCtion of mills and other works operating by the force Of water or steam. He was a mathematical instrument maker and an optician ; his telescopes are much esteemed. He was an organ builder, his first organ was made entirely with his own hands before he had seen the internal part of any instrument upon that mode of construction. He constructed a hand mill for grinding corn for the use of his own family, and this kind of mill is now in much use in many parts of the kingdom; he thereafter end- ed at Whiston, the place of his nativity, a windmill upon a new construction. This mill is so contrived, that those who have ex- amined it concur in allowing, that, with a small press of wind upon the sails, it is capable of a more powerful operation than any mill of equal dimensions. He praCtised Physic and Surgery To this occupation he dedicated part of two mornings in each week Patients flocked to him from the circumjacent parts to the distance of ten or fifteen miles. His house was on his pub- lic mornings, commonly visited by from twenty to fifty people of both fexes and all ages, soliciting relief from the diversified af- flictions incidental to the human body. To such whose circum- stances would not admit them to pay, he administered his advice and medicines gratis — On the Sunday morning before his appre- hension, he was consulted by above forty patients. The father of the above unfortunate person is stll living; he retired from busi- ness near twenty years ago; he survived the shock occasioncd bv one son suffering death for coining, how the fate of the other will effect him, time will show. Several persons have been taken into custody as accomplices. We hear that Mr. RAEBURN has just finished a very strik- ing portrait of Mr. ELDER, which was painted at the par- ticular request of the Senatus Academicus of the University of Edinburgh. It is to be hung up in their New Buildings, of which he laid the foundation when first Lord Provost of this city.— It is with pleasure we remark, that the merits of this deserving Magistrate. who distinguished himself so pe- cularly in the preservation of the public peace, have been recognised by this learned and respectable Body. The Circuit Court of Judiciary was opened at Ayr, on Sa- turday last, by the Right Hon. Lord CRAIG.— No criminal business depending before the Court— Lord CrAiG gave judgment in three cases of appeal. On the night between the 28th and 19th of September, the Fame, ot Liverpool, John Ford, master, loaded with flax, iron, and tallow, was put on shore during a hard gale of wind from the N. E. about two miles to the weft of Banff, and is totally wrecked, and two of the crew unfortunately drowned.— Part of the cargo, by the activity of the Banff Volunteers, will be saved. Same night, a large Russian brig, bound to Liverpool, loaded with flax, iron, and deals, was put on shore at Gar- denstown— the crew, and greatest part of the cargo, faved. On Wednesday fresh herrings caught in the Frith, near Kincardine, were sold in Edinburgh market at a penny a piece. price of best Oatmeal, 13d. the peck. Tuesday last, Mrs. Dundas of Arniston was safely deli- vered of a son, at Melville Castle. On the 8th inst Mrs. Kennedy of Underwood, was safely delivered of a daughter. Upon the xoth curt, was married here, George Gibson, Esq; of Brewlands, to Miss Jessy Wightman; youngest daughter of John Wightman, Esq; late of Maulsley. Married, at Leith, on the 9th inst.

Dr. HENRY MAXWELL, Lord Bishop of MeATH. Died on Thursday se'ennight at Desart, Ireland, the Rev. Bellingham Swan, aged 1O2 years : he was curate to DEAN SWIFT. Notwithstanding his great age, he retained his fa- culties to the last hour of his existence. Died, at Ramoir, the 19th September last, John Hogg, Esq; of Ramoir, aged 65 years. John Campbell, of Ensay, died at his house in Harries, the 25th August last. Mrs. Davidson, wife of the Rev. Dr. Davidson, Principal of Glasgow College, died there on the 5th current. Died, at Dumfries, on Monday last, Capt. James Thom- son, aged 81. , Mr. James Rennie, jun. merchant in Leith, died there on the 19th ult. Mr. Andrew Henderson senior, writer in Selkirk, died on the 3d inst. Friday last, died here, much regretted, Lieut. Ransh, of the Artillery company belonging to the Shropshire Militia.— His death was occasioned by a fall from a very unruly horse on the preceding Wednesday, in returning to town from Queensferry. Lieut. Ransh was about 21 years of age, of amiable manners, and well connected. He was interred on Wednesday in the Greyfriars church- yard with military ho- nours. The precession from the Castle was grand and awful- ly solemn. At the grave the burial service was read by the Rev. Mr. CLEEVE, and three volleys were fired over it by the artillery company.

Mr Trasare, we are concerned to say, died in a quarter of a hour after the accident. Robert M'Combe was immediately taken to the Infirmary, and is in a fair way of recovery, which it is hoped will be effected, as the entire support ot a wife and four children depends 0n his labour. We are sorry to mention a melancholy, accident.— Mr George Ross, of Bonington, had all the country people in the neighbourhood assembled upon the occasion of the late Vic- tory, and, on the firing of a cannon, while two men were too near to the mouth of it, one of them was so much wounded on the thigh that he died on Sunday morning other is very much hurt, but is in a way of recove On Tuesday a respite came from the Duke of for seven days, for Joass Robertson and George condemned at last Circuit, held at Stirling, for ro Ferguson, a private of the 5th militia. Modern Husbandary has introduced many Important im- provements in the rotation of crops, but few more advan- tageous than the late one, of sowing turnips after flax or hemp. Many useful discoverics have been gradually intro- duced in the feeding of domeitic animals by our English.. farmers, but there are many roots that have been but little attended to; of this number is the Parsnip, which from its containing a large portion of the Saccharine principle, must be highly nutritious. It is much cultivated at Guernsey and Jersey, and extremely profitable for fattening hogs & poultry. Last week a cabbage stock of an extraordinary size was brought to Dundee from the garden at Belmount Castle. It weighed not less than 40 lb. From the stalk a number of stocks of the ordinary size branched out. A singular instance of the mildness of the season, com- pared with former years— There are now in Mr. Deuchar's garden, Morningside, near Edinburgh, two pear- trees with a second crop of pears the size of goose- berries. One jar- ganelle pear- tree, from which a great quantity of ripe pears were taken a month ago, is now in full blossom. There are also several apple- trees and red roses full blown.— In the fanie garden one grain of barley produced 57 stalks, 55 of which came to maturity ; the least head contained 16 grains, and he largest ao. One grain of Botany Bay oats produced IJ stalks, and one grain of wheat 19 stalks ; all of which ri- pened, and produced a very great quantity. SEQUESTRATIONS, See.
