VOL. LXX. THE No. 3636. EDINBURGH ADVERTISER. From TUESDAY OCTOBER 30, to FRIDAY NOVEMBER 2, 1798. THURSDAY's POST. The following is the Conclusion of the MANIFESTO of the OT- TOMAN PORTE against FRANCE, published in the LONDON GAZETTE, the substance of which appeared in last ADVERTI- SER, page I. it is intitled the ManifesTo of the SUBLIME PORTE, communicated to our ESTEEMED FRIEND, the MINISTER PLENIPOTENTIARY of GREAT BRITAIN, at CONSTANTI- NOPLE, I\ tb September, 1798. ( N the beginning of the war with the other Powers, the French Government had declared, that their intention was not to acquire New Territory, but, on the contrary, to restore every' such conquest as might have been made by their arms during the contest : Contrary to which, they not only have kept possession of various extensive Provinces, snatched by them from the Belli- gerent Powers; but not content with this, profiting of the changes which had prevailed among the Allied Courts through their in- trigues, have put off the mask entirely, and, developing their s'e cret views, without reason or justice, have fallen upon several Free and independent Republics and States who had held themselves Neutral, like the Sublime Porte; invading their territories when least provided with the means of defence, and subjecting them to their will by open force and hostility Thus, no one being left to control them, they tore the veil of all decorum at once; and, unmindful of the obligations of Trea- ties, and to convince the world that Friendship and Enmity are the same thing in their eyes, contrary to the Rights of Nations, and in violation of the ties subsisting between the two Courts, they came, in a manner altogether unprecedented, like a Set of Pirates, and made a sudden invasion in Egypt, the most precious among the Provinces of the OTTOMAN PORTE ; of which they took forcible possession at a time when they had experienced nothing from this Court but demonstrations of friendship. Upon the first surmise of the French project to invade that Pro- vince, RUFFIN, their Charge d'affaires at this residence, being questioned Officially, declared he had no intelligence whatever re- specting it; out he gave it, as a speculation of his own that if such an enterprise ever proved true it probably must be to take revenge of the Beys, and to annoy and attack the English settle- ments in the East Indies. In answer to this it was circumstantially stated to him, that the smallest attempt, 0n the part of the French, upon Egypt, on what- ever pretext it might be founded, would be taken as a declaration of war; that the Ottoman Empire would not suffer the loss of a handful of sand of the Egyptian Territory: that if the chastise- ment of the Beys of Egypt was necessary, it behoved the SUBLIME PORTE, to inflict it on them as her dependents; that the interfe- rence of the French in this business was inconsistent with the Rights of nations; that the Court of GREAT BRITAIN, being the dear- est Friend of the OTTOMAN EMPIRE, the SUBLIME PORTE would never consent to the passage of French Troops through her territory to act against their settlements; that, in short, should even their expedition to Egypt have no other object but this, it would he equally construed into a declaration of war; of all which he was charged to make the earliest communication to the DIRECTORY in this very language Before the communications sent by Ruffin to the DIRECTORY, and the dispatches transmitted by the Sublime Porte to her Ambassador before named, a letter of an old date was received by the said Ruffin, expressing that BUONAPARTE'S expedition to Egypt was true, but that the object was to secure some commercial advantages by bring- ing the Beys to an Account, and to hurt GREAT BRITAIN. Upon the other hand, AALI EFENDI, the SUBLIME PORTE'S Ambassador at Paris, had, by order of the SUBLIME PORTE, an interview with TALLEYRAND PERIGORD, the Minister of Exter- nal Relations, and demanded officially a categorical answer : That the said Minifter ( forgetting, as is to be supposed, the tenor of the letter which had been written to RUFFIN some time before) positively disavowed the expedition against Egypt, and said that BUONAPARTE'S commission had no other object but the conquest of Malta; that the abolition of the Order there being a measure conducive to the benefit of all the Turks, the SUBLIME PORTE ought to feel even obliged by it; that the DIRECTORY had no- thing more at heart than to maintain the peace existing with the PORTE since time immemorial, and more and more to strengthen the same ; thus barefacedly exhibiting a farce of the most artful duplicity. The wide contradiction between the two communications of TALLEYRAND PERIGORD, at Paris, and of RuffiN, the FRENCH AMBASSADOR at Constantinople, being visibly a fresh artifice by which to mislead the OTTOMAN PORTE, and to gain time until intelligence could be procured respecting the affair of Egypt, is a palpable demonstration, that the Directors of the French Govern- meat, to second their own ambition and arrogance, have actually lost all recollection of those laws observed and maintained in every regular Government, and that no Faith whatever is to be placed in their Words and Professions. From the tenor of their arbitrary proceedings and despotic con- duct, as too well witnessed from first to last, it is clear and evi- dent, that their project is no other but to banish every orderly institution from the face of the woild ; to overset Human Society; and, by an alternate play of secret intrigue or open hostility. as best suits their end, to derange the Constitution of every establish- ed Independent State, by creating ( as they have done in Italy) a number of small Republics, of which the French is to he the Pa- rent Mother, and thus to sway and to conduct every thing after their own will every where. Now EGYPT being the portal of the two venerable cities, { Mecca and Medina and the present operations in that quarter being of a nature affecting all the Mahomedan Sect at large, the SUBLIME PORTE,- confidently with her express declarations, feels compelled, by every law, to resist the sudden and unprovoked ag- gressions and hostilities committed by the French, and with a full confidence in the assistance of ths Omnipotent God, to set about repelling and destroying the enemy by sea and land. Thus, to wage war against France, is become a Precept of Religion incumbent upon all Mussulmen. In consequence whereof, the afore- named Charge d'Affaires, together with the Officers of that Mission, have been sent to the Seven Towers, to be detained there as hostages until such time as Auli Effendi before- named, and those of his retinue, he arrived from Paris : And the Consuls, Merchant's, and French Properties in Constantinople, and in other parts of the Ottoman Empire, shall also be kept in deposit and as a security, until the Merchants, dependents of the SUBLIME PORTE, with their shipping and pro- perties. as also the public ships, with their equipages, detained in the Province of Egypt, ( prisoners of war excepted,) be set at li- berty. To repel the perfidy of these Usurpers, who have raised the standard of rebellion and trouble in France, is a measure, in which not the safety and tranquillity of the SUBLIME PORTE alone, but also that of all the POWERS of EUROPE is concerned. Wherefore the best hopes are entertained of the cordial co- operation of all friendly Courts, as well as of their disposition to fulfil by every means in their power, their duties of friendship and of assistance in the present cause. 1 Rebuilakher, 1213. ( 11 September, 1798.) IMPERIAL DECREE, promulgated at the PORTE on Saturday, ifl September. IT being incumbent upon ail true believers to combat those faith- lless Brurtes the French, and it being become a positive duty for Our Imperial Person to deliver the blessed territories from their accursed hands, and to revenge the insult which they have offered to Mussulmans, the most vigorous measures must be pursued to at- tack them by sea and land Wherefore, by a deliberation with the illustrious. lawyers, mi nisters, and chieftains, our subjects, you must ( with a full confi- dence in God and his Prophet) fix upon the effectual means of freeing the Province of Egypt from the presence of such wretches. You will acquaint all the true believers in the respective quarters, that We are at War with the French and, turning night into day, will apply your utmost efforts to take revenge of them. You will adopt the most vigilant conduct towards defending the other Mahometan Provinces, and our Imperial frontiers, from the ' plots and malice of the enemy, by the due reinforcement ot every 1 port and place with troops and military stores. We shall observe your exertions ; and may the Omnipotent God ordain his divine favour to attend our undertakings, and render us successful in the vindication of our cause. * Original Swine. From the LONDON PAPERS, Oct. 19. LONDON. Capt. BERRY, of the Vanguard, who was on board the Leander at the time of her capture, has written to his wife, and her father, Dr. Forster of Norwich .. £ spt 7, in which he states, that the Leander, having Been much injured in the action off the NiLe, in which she acquitted her- self with distinguished credit, was compelled to strike to Le Genereux, of 74 guns, after a feeble resistance ; the Gene- reux had 20 men killed, and a considerable number wound- ed. We are happy to state, that Capt. BERRY, together with Capt. THOMPSON, of the Leander, and his brave Offi- cers and crew, experienced the kindest attention at Corfu ; from whence they expected shortly t0 return to England. General MAITLAND, who a few days since arrived from the West Indies is ordered to hold himself in readiness to embark for the Mediterranean. It is suppofed either for Malta or Alexandria. The French Projector, who announced that he should ascend by a Balloon, mounted on horseback, made the attempt lately at Bellerue, about, two leagues from Paris. The as- censional force of the Balloon, though of large dimensions, was Just sufficient ' O raise M. Testu Brissy and his horse to the height of a neighbouring chimney, from which both the quack projector and the unoffending animal would have broken their necks if speedy assistance had not been render- ed — M; Brissy should Certainly have been employed on the Irish expedition 1 On Saturday night, a sailor at a public house, in King- street, Wapping, playing with a pistol, not knowing it 10 be charged, and being, withal in liquor, levelled it at a girl coming for beer, when the contents entered her thigh, and shattered IT so much, that her life is despaired of.

On sending my boats on board, I found that in consequence of her being hull'd in several places she was sinking very fast, which detained me a considerable time, ( in endeavouring to stop the leak,) otherwise I must inevi- tably have taken another before they could possibly have reached the coast of France. I have the pleasure to say that all the prisoners got safe on board except those killed by my firing, and every exertion was used to save the vessel, but to EDINBURGH ADVERTISES, for no effect; at nine- A. M. she sunk ; she was entirely new, had been out two cruizes only, and taken nothing. One of the luggers in company had captured a brig, which I observed his Majesty's sloop the Plover to take possession of, off Folkestone, at eleven A. M. I am, & c. ROB. LLOYD.

ADVICES FROM FRANCE. From the FRENCH PAPERS. Paris Paper 1 to the 23 J inst. are received— These Papers contain dispatches from BUONAPARTE, which are of an old date, having taken sixty days to come, and the brig only ha- ving escaped by hiding herself between two rocks; all the other dispatches having been taken or lost. The dispatches contain the account of BUONAPARTE S progress since he left Toulon— The following are the particulars that have not yet been published: BUONAPARTE Member of the National Institute, General in Chief, to the EXECUTIVE DIRECTORY. Head- Quarters, CAIRO, 6th Thermidor, 61 b Year " Citizens Directors, ( e4th. July J. " On he 19th Messidor the Army set out from Alexan- dria. It arrived at Demenhour on the 20th, having suffer- ed greatly in traversing this desart, from excessive heat and want of water. BATTLE OF RHAMANIE. " On the 22d we met the Nile at Rhamanie, and joined the Division of Gen. Dugua, who had proceeded to Rosetta, by forced marches. The Division of Gen. Desaix was at- tacked bv a body of 7 or- 800 Mamelukes, who, after a brisk cannonade, and the loss of some men, retired. BATTLE OF CHEBREISSE. " In the mean time I learnt that MURAT BEY, at the head of his army, composed of a considerable force of Caval- ry, with 8 or 10 karge cannon, and several batteries upon the Nile, was advancing. We waited near the village of Che- breisse. On the evening of the 24th we began to march to- wards it. The 25th, at day- break, we arrived there. " We had only 200 cavalry, wearied and harassed. The Mamelukes had a magnificent body of cavalry, covered with gold and silver arms of the best kind ; carbines, pistols, of the manufacture of London, the best sabres of the East, and mounted on the best horses on the Continent. " Citizen PERREE, Chief of the Division of marine, with three armed sloops, a chebeck and a galley, proceeded to the attack of the enemy's flotilla. The battle was extreme- ly obstinate.— PERRSE, the Chief of Division, was wounded in the arm with a cannon ball ; but by his good dispositions and his intrepidity regained possession of three sloops and a galley which the Mamelukes had taken( and set fire to their Admiral's ship. " The cavalry of the Mamelukes soon inundated all the plain, surrounded all the wings of our army, and pressed us on all sides in flank and in the rear ; but they every where found our line was equally formidable, and opposed them with a double fire from the flank and front.— They many times endeavoured to change, but without determination. Some more bold skirmished with us, but they were received by the balls of the carabineers placed before the battalions. In fine, after having remained a part of the day at about half cannon shot- distance, they commenced their retreat and disappeared.— We may estimate their loss at about 300 men killed and wounded. " We had marched during eight, days, in want of every thing ; and in one of the hottest climates in the world. On the morning of the sd Thermidor, we perceived the Pyra- mids. BATTLE OF THE PYRAMIDS. " On the third, at day- break, we met their advanced guard, which we pursued from village to village. At two in the afternoon, we found ourselves at the enemies entrenchments. I ordered the divisions of Generals DESAIX and REYNIER Nov. 1, to take a position to the right, between Giza and Lambabe, in order to cut off the Communication of the enemy with higher Egypt, their natural retreat. " The instant that MURAT BEY perceived the movement of Gen. DESAIX, he resolved to charge. He sent one of the bravest of his Beys, with a body of Chosen troops, who charged the troops with the rapidity of lightning; We let them approach within fifty paces, when we overwhelmed them with a shower of balls, which made vast numbers fall on the field of battle.— They threw themselves between the spaces which formed the two divisions, where they were received by a double fire, which finished their defeat " I seized ihe moment, and ordered the division of Genera! Bon, who was upon the Nile, to procced to the attack of he entrenchments; and Gen. Vial, who commanded the division of Gen. Menou, to proceed between tbe body of troops which had charged him and the entrenchments. " The columns of attack of Gen. Bon, commanded by the brave Gen. Rampon. threw themselves into the entrench- ments with their usual impetuosity, notwithstanding the fire of a great quantity of artillery when the Mamelukes charg- ed them. They went out of their entrenchments at full gallop. Our columns had time to halt, and t0 form a front to oppose them on all sides, and receive them with the bayo- net, and a shower of balls. At the same instant, the field of battle was strewed with the slain. Our troops soon carried the entrenchments. The Mamelukes, in their flight, pre- cipitated themselves in crowds on our left, but Gen. Vial was posted to receive them. A battalion of Carabineers, under whose fire they were obliged to pass, made a dreadful slaughter of them. A great number threw themselves into the Nile, and swam off. " More than 400 camels, loaded with baggage, and 30 pieccs of artillery, fell info our power. I estimate the loss of the Mamelukes at 2000 men, the choice of their cavalry. Great part of the Beys were killed or wounded. Murat Bey was wounded in the cheek. Our loss amounts to twen- ty or thirty killed, and iso wounded. During the night the city of Cairo was evacuated. All their armed sloops, cor- vetes, brigs, and even a frigate, were burnt. ON the 4th our troops entered Cairo. In the night the populace burnt the houses of the Beys, and committed many excesses. Cairo, which contains more than 300,000 inhabitants, has the most abandoned populace in the world. " The cavalry of the Mamelukes shewed great bravery. They defended their fortunes ; for there was not one of them on whom our soldiers did not find three, four, 2nd five hun- dred Louis d'Ors. " All the luxury of those people consisted in their horses and arms. Their houses are wretched. It is difficult to find a country more fertile, or a people more miserable, more ig- norant, and more stupid. They prefer a button of our sol- diers to a crown of six franks value. In the villages they do not even know the use of a pair of scissars. They have no moveables but a straw mat, and two or three earthen pots. They do not know the use of wind- mills, so that we have Constantly immense quantities of grain without any flour. The small quantity of grain which they Convert to flour, they bruise with stones ', and in some of the large villages they have mills, which are turned by oxen. " We have been continually harassed by the Arabs, who are the greatest robbers and the greatest villains on earth, assassinating the Turks as well as the French, and all who fall into their hands. The General of Brigade, MUREUR and several other Aides- de- Camp, and Officers of tbe Etat- Major, have been assassinated by these wretches. Conceal- ed behind ditches, or in trenches, upon their excellent lit- tle horses, unfortunate it is for him who strays 100 paces from the columns. Gem MUREUR, notwithstanding the representations of the great caution necessary to be observ- ed, by a fatality which I have often remarked to accompany men arrived at their last hour, was desirous to ascend alone a little eminence, about two hundred paces from the Camp. Behind it were three Bedouins who assassinatcd him . The Republic has in him sustained a real loss ; he was one of the bravest Generals I ever knew. There in this country very little money, a great deal of corn, rice, vegetables, and cattle. ' The Republic could not have a Colony of more capacity or richer soil. The climate is very healthy, owing to the freshness of the nights. Notwithstanding fifteen davs of marching, fatigues of every kind, the absolute want of wine, and everv thing else to alleviate fatigue, We have had no sickness. The soldiers have found great resources in a kind of water- melons, which are tn great abundance. " Head- Quarters, CAIRO, Aug. T9. " After giving an account of several skirmishes with the Arabs, the particulars of which is not very interesting, BUONAPARTE says: " On the 6th of July, I wrote to the Admiral to enter the port of Alexandria in 24 hours ; and if that was not practicable, to land immediately all the artillery and stores belonging to the army, and return to Corfu. I then left Alexandria, in the full assuranee that, in three days, one of these measures woulJ have been adopted. From that to the 24th of July, I received no intelligence whatever, either from Rosetta or Alexandria. A multitude of Arabs col- lecting from all parts of the desart, kept constantly within five hundred toises of the Camp. " On the 27th, at length, the report of our victories, and different positions, opened our communications. I received several letters from the Admiral, when I learned, with asto- nishment, that he remained still at Aboukir. I then wrote to him again, that he must not lose an hour, but either enter the port of Alexandria, or return to Corfu. Tbe Admiral had written to me on the ioth of July, that several English frigates were come to reconnoitre, and that he was fortify- ing himself in expectation of the enemy at Aboukir. This strange resolution filled me with the most lively alarms. I dispatched Citizen JULIEN, my Aid de Camp, with orders not to leave Aboukir, until he had seen the squadron under sail. On the night of the 1st of August the Engish attack ed him. On the moment he perceived the English squadron, Nov. *. THE he dispatched an Officer to apprise me of his dispositions and plans ; this Officer perished on the road. It seemed to me that Admire] BRUEYS Was unwilling to return to Corfu, before he had ascertained the practicability of entering the port of Alexandria ; and that the army, of which he had received no intelligence for a long time, was in a position in which it would not be obliged to retreat.— If in this cala- mitous event he was to blame, he has expiated his faults by a glorious death.— The destinies have been desirous to prove OB this occasion, as on so many others, that if they grant us a great preponderance on the Continent, they have given the Empire of ihe Seas to our rivals ; but however great this reverse, it is not to be attributed to the fickleness of Fortune. She has not yet abandoned us. Far from it; she has favour- ed us in the whole expedition in a degree surpassing all her former efforts. When I arrived before Alexandria, and learned that the English had been there a few days before with a superior force ; notwithstanding the tempestuousness of the weather, I threw myself on shore at the risk of being wrecked. I remember, at the moment when preparations were making for landing, there was a signal in the offing of an enemy's sail. ( It was the Justice, coming from Malta). I exclaimed, " Fortune, would you abandon me ? Only five day's I marched all night; at break of day I attacked Alexandria with 3000 harassed men, without cannon, and nearly without cartridges ; and in five days I became master of Rosetta, of Demonhour } that is to fay, I am already established in Egypt. " For these five days was the squadron sheltered from the enemy, however great might be their number ? Far from it ; it remained exposed during the remainder of the month of July. It received from Rosetta, about the 20th of that month, a supply of rice for two months. The english, in superior force, were for ten days in these parts. Oa the 20th July it received intelligence of our entire possession of Egypt, and our entry into Cairo ; and it was only after Fortune saw that all her favours were beeome of no further use, that she aban- doned our fleet to its destiny. I salute vou. ( Signed) BUONAPARTE." A letter from General BERTHIER of the same date, 19th August, gives an account of BUONAPARTE having establish- ed an entrenched camp at four leagues from Cairo, which kept in check the force of MURAT BEY. General LECLERC, who Commands 4000 men, Was at- tacked by a body of men as well Mamelukes as Arabs, whom he repulsed, but suffered great loss. It is said that BUONAPARTE found in Egypt, the Envoys of TIPPOO SAIB, who had been long waiting for him.-^ ( L'Echo.) BUONAPARTE has ordered his officers who died and have been killed in Egypt, to be buried at the foot of POMPEY'S PILLaR, and their names to be inscribed on iti The Directory have declared the following persons now in England, to be Emigrants, viz. PICHEGRU, BARTHELE- MI, DELARUE, WILLOT, RAMEL, and DESSONVILLE From the LONDOn PAPERS, Oct. 30. THE HAMBURGH MAIL. VIENNA, Oct. 13. Accounts have been received here, that the French trans- ports in the harbour of Alexandria have been destroyed, and that BUONAPARTE, after a severe battle, had been obliged to retreat from Cairo to Rosetta. The following are the particulars : The day before yesterday the Turkish Ambassador here received, by a Courier, dispatches from the Government of Constantinople, which were to be forwarded to London and Paris. After the arrival of the Turkish Courier, tbe following accounts were made known : The English have made an attack on the harbour of Alex- andria, to destroy the tranfports. In despite of the batte- ries which the French had erected, the English bomb- ketches, employed according to the directions left by Ad- miral NELSON, succeeded in their attempt to set fire to the French Transports which lay before the entrance of the harbour, and as so great a number of ships could not be far from each other, the fire communicated from ship to ship, till they were almost: all destroyed. According to these accounts, tiie greater part of the crews saved themselves, and only a few lost their lives. Several Venetian, Ragusan, and even Turkish merchant ships were destroyed. The Cap- tains of these ships had for a long time solicited permission to depart, but the French had constantly refused it. The operations of the English were made in conjunction with the Mamelukes, who attacked the garrison of Alexan- dria while the English manoeuvred to destroy the transports. The two ships of the line which the French had brought from Venice, and which were in the harbour of Alexandria, likewise became a prey to the flames. The second important article of intelligence which has been received from the Turkish Ambassador, Is the follow- ing : The BEYS of Egypt collected a strong force near Cairo, and, under the direction of some English Officers, on the 9th of September a severe battle took place with BUONA PARTE. The Beys found, as they expected, an obstinate opposition, but were so successful, as to drive the French from Cairo, and oblige them to retreat to Rosetta. The battle lasted almost the whole day, and a great number were killed on the part of the Arabs as well as that of the French. The Egyptians were highly incensed that the French should stile themselves Mussulmen, when it was known that they neither honoured the Prophet MAHOMET nor read and observed the Koran. The Ministry At Con- stantinople were in daily expectation of accounts that the French had Capitulated, as they could neither go backwards nor forwards, nor were certain of a supply of provisions. ( ANOTHER LETTER, SAME DATE,) BUONAPARTE has been driven from Cairo with great loss. so that his army now amounts to only Twelve Thou- sand men. After their defeat the French offered to capitu- late on condition that they should be suffered to retire un- E B 1 M B U R G H A D V E R T I S E R for molested ; but the Beys rejected the proposal, as they ex- pect a complete victory, and require an unconditional sur- render. In all the great Cities and Maritime Towns of the Turk- ish Empire, the preparations for war are continued with great activity, and the Nation daily manitests a greater en- mity to the French. P. S.— The accounts of the destruction of the French Transports in the harbour of Alexandria, 366 in number, is confirmed, as is also the intelligence that BUONAPARTE has retreated to Rosetta. CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. 45. " On the 21st inst. the French Consul General at Smyrna, JEAN BON ST. ANDRE, was brought hither, under a strong escort, and sent the same day to the prison of the Seven Towers. It is said, that important papers were found in his possession, relative to a Revolution in the Ottoman States. " Yesterday we received intelligence, that the French Fleet of Transports at Alexandria had been burned. " There is a report of a great expedition against the South of France, Provence, See. in revenge for the attack of the French on Egypt." LONDON. On Sunday La Tigre, of ia guns, Capt. Sir SYDNEy SMITH, sailed forthe Mediterranean, with Presents for the EMPEROR of MOROCCO. Gen. PICHEGRU, is on board the Tigre. The THETIS man of war, Capt. Cochrane, is arrived at Portsmouth from Halifax. By the THETIS frigate, from Halifax, we have received accounts of a dreadful hurricane that took place there on the » ; th September last, and did much damage to the town and shipping. Very few of the ships were lost, and it is expected most of the cargoes will be saved. Mr. Suther- land, a young gentleman belonging to the Prevoyante, un- fortunately perished. We hear of few other lives being lost. None of the ships of war have sufFered much. Extract of a letter from ALDERNEy, dated %\ lh October. " On Sunday last a long French row- boat lugger from Cherbourg took a sloop in ballast from Mevagissey, bound to and close in with Guernsey, with which he steered up the race towards Cherbourg. A frigate from Guernsey Roads slipped out after them, and another off Cape La Hogue cut them off. The sloop in consequence came to an anchor amongst the Cape rocks, and was there left with one woman passenger, by the crew, who escaped on shore, and she was retaken by the frigate's boats.— The privateer was either sunk by the shot from the fnips, or dashed to pieces against the rocks, as we saw her disappear in an instant, and the boats returning from whence she had been. The sloop is got back to Guernsey, and the crew say that the privateer has been destroyed. This is a lucky thing, for she failed extremely well, and was very bold." It is pleasant to observe how often French ships are taken by those which once were French :— how frequently the enemy is shot with a feather from his own wing. The Fishguard, which has now captured a French frigate, is the vessel, that, under the name of La Resistance, brought over the French convicts to Wales, and paid the price of her cap- ture for the enterprize. She was taken by the St. Fiorenzo and La Nymphe ; and both these ships were French • the former being captured in 1794, in the Corsican harbour of that name ; and the latter at sea in 1780. The Fishguard, it has been said, is a 48 gun frigate, and we find it so stated in Steel's Navy List ; but it is a mistake. The books of the Admiralty ( who ought to be well inform- ed) rate her as a 38. Her commander, who by the capture of L' Immortalite, of 44 guns; ( 44 pounders, whilst she had but eighteens, and not half the number of men,) has added so much to his own fame, and that of his country, is the Captain MARTIN who, in the Santa Margaretta, took the Thames off the coast of Ireland, on the 7th of June, 1796. Capt. Newman, of the Mermaid, who so gallantly en- gaged and beat off a ship of such very superior force, is a relation of Lord BRIDPORT, and was a Lieutenant in the Royal George with his Lordship on the glorious 1st of June. How much the French must lament the capture of their Brest squadron, destined against Ireland, may appear from the reliance they placed upon such expeditions, when they had to look round for some consolation, after the destruction of their Mediterranean fleet One of their papers, alluding to this event, said, " of what importance will this defeat be to our main purpose? will it hinder us from going to Vi enna ? will it prevent those expeditions to IRELAND, which recent events have shewn may be so easily made ?" Another French paper remarked " what signifies the de- feat cf the Toulon fleet, when our Brest fleet is now strik- ing a deadly blow in the Vitals of Proud Albion The BOARD of AGRICULTURE have come to an unani- mous resolution. that their presidency, in future, shall be annually elective An elopement took place on Thursday afternoon from a boarding school near one of the most fashionable squares in the west end of the town.

On Saturday morning, four Irish seamen, latelv belonging to the Glory, of 98 guns, were executed on board the thisbe frigate, in Hamoaze, for attempting to excite a mutiny, and afterwards to murder the Officers belonging to that fhip ; and at half past twelve o'clock four other Irish seamsn, lately belonging to the said ship, were executed on board the Captain, of 74 guns, in Cawsand Bay, being implicated in the same horrible crime. It appeared upon evidence on the trial of those men, that the United Irishmen onboard, to tbe number of t* 2, had, the day before they intended to put their horrid scheme of murdering the officers into execution, presented an Address 0 the Captain of the ship, expressive of their loyalty, and gratitude to Capr.

TRIAL AT THE OLD BAILEY. Lad week, John Bond, a carpenter, was tried for the wilful mur- der of his Wife, which involves a curious and nice point of law- It was clearly proved, th. it the Prisoner had come in when his Wife was mending stockings, and had given her repeated blows on the side of the head, with an iron bill for cutting wood, which immediately caused her death. They previously had some words about money matters— When the neighbours came in, alarmed by the cries of murder, and were seizing the Prisoner, he wanted to go away, saying, he had done no harm, " that his Wife had killed herself, by falling on the bed- stead."— The defence set up by the Prisoner, was, that he was insane— Several witnesses were called, who swore, that he frequently behaved like a man de- prived of his senses— that he sometimes appeared like a man in despair and melancholy; declaring that he was not fit to live; and about ten years ago, that he attempted to make away with him- self, by hanging himself on a beam in the work shop, when he wasv cut down, and the rope taken from his neck. Mr BARON HOTHAM summed up the evidence very accurate- ly— His Lordship said, if the Jury were of opinion, that the Pri- soner was in such a state as not to know what he did when he committed the dreadful deed, God forbid they shoUld attempt to say he was answerable for the crime of Murder, for by the Law of England he could not be guilty of that or any other crime Under such mental derangement; but it was not enough to say, that a man is in a melancholy state, of a gloomy temper, of i splenetic disposition, apt to be distracted with gloomy fits, or dis- turbed in his mind, or that he is unhappy, or discontented or tired of life, in order to excuse him. The Jury must be satisfied, that his mind was so far deranged, that he was not a free Agent, and that he did not know what he was doing ai the time— They had heard, that some years ago, he attempted to hang himself; this showed a wild incoherent mind, but he had daily been at his work since. The people of the house in which he lived, who must have discovered it. did not think him deranged— If the Prisoner was in this unfortunate state of derangement, what should his conduct have been when he was discovered ? Very different from what it was; for his conduct was perfectly that of a man who knew the consequences of the deed he had done. He denied, the fact, he wished to get off, and said the deceased had " killed herself by fal- ling on a bed- stead." This was not the couduct of a man out of his senses. He did know what he had done, and the necessity of making his escape for it;— The question for the Jury to decide was, whether the Prisoner knew what he Was about or not? If they thought he did not understand any thing, in God's name, let them acquit him, but if they thought his real state of mind was that of an unhappy mind, gloomy, melancholy, and discontented, from various causes, or from any one cause, but that he knew what he was doing when he committed the murder, then it would be their duty to the public to pronouncc him guilty.— But if they thcught he did not know what he Was about, and that he knew no diffe- rence in the consequence of killing his wife from the killing of hii cat, GOD forbid he should be convicted. The Jury in a short time brought in their verdict— GuilTy. The Officer of the Court having asked him what he had to say for himself; why the Court should not give him judgment to die according to law ? He said, the witnesses had been telling a wrong story, he never used the bill, as he was a sinner, and hoped for mercy through CHRIST. The RECORDER then passed sentence of Death and Execution on him in the usual form. He was executed yesterday. He ap- peared very stupid and unconcerned Previous to his being turn- ed off, he spoke to several people who were near him, and acknow- ledged the guilt for which he was to suffer, but ascribed it to a mo- mentary passion. At the Old Bailey oh Thursday, John Wheeler was tried on a charge of Bigamy, and found guilty. This man, it appears, has six wives living, and lately ran off with one of his children's Grandmother /— The whole Bench of Justices was posed as to the adoption of a punishment adequate to the offence :— As most of them are married men, we marvel that they did not condemn him to pass the remainder of his days in the United Society of his six Helpmates.— He is sentenced to be Transported for Seven Years.

Hog Pease ready sale, and Boilers sold dearer, having few at market, Beans were more plentiful, yet they maintained their prices; and fine Oats obtained sixpence advance, having scarce any arrivals to- day. CAPTURE OF A DUTCH FRIGATE. An authentic account has just been received from Yar- mouth, that a cutter had arrived there with intelligence of a Dutch frigate having been taken bv the SIRIUS frigate, of 36 guns, Capt. R. KING, to the northward of the Texel. with 200 trOops on board.. Not a shot was fired by the Dutch- man. The English frigate was in pursuit of a second, and little doubt was entertained but she would come up with her. We have the pleasure to state in page 284, the capture of another fine, French frigate, La Loire, by the gallant Capt. DURHAM. She is very valuable, having on board Complete clothing for 3000 men, 1020 musquets, a brass field piece, See. Sic. The Anson has suffered much in her masts and rigging, and unfortunately had lost her mizen mast previous to the aCtion, whereby her opponent had a considerable advantage ; indeed La Loire is, in all respects, superior to the Anson, supposing each to have met in a complete state, therefore nothing but that superlative degree of skill and courage which so eminently distinguishes British seamen, could have been equal to such a contest, and ultimate victory. When the ANSON first attacked LA LOIRE, all her guns were double shotted, and so incessant a fire was kept up on her, that she was soon completely disabled, at length entire- ly dismasted, and reduced almost to a mere wreck. It is said that the French Navy can boast of only one more of the like kind; she is quite new, and was on her first cruize. She is gone up Hamoaze, where in due time she will be completely equipped, and then exhibit an Appearance that will challenge all the navies of Europe- for an equal of her class. She is the largest Razee in the French service, and is of the scantling and timbers of a 74. The following is a correct statement of the fate of the Brest Squadron : Le Hoche - 80, taken, but has not yet reached port. L'Immortalite 44, taken, and arrived at Plymouth. La Loire - 44, taken, ditto. La Romaine 44, escaped. La Bellone 40, taken, but not arrived in port. La Resolue 40, taken, and arrived at Greenock. La Coquille 40, taken, and arrived at Belfast. L'Ambuscade, 36, taken, ditto. La Semillante, 36, escaped. The only two ships La Romaine and La Semillante that have escaped, are expected also to be taken. The British frigate La Revolutionaire was seen in chace of one of them. The Hamburgh Mail, ( see page 285,) brings a confirma- tion of the destruction of the French transports in the har- bour of Alexandria. The whole number of transports de- stroyed was 366 as also two Venetian ships of war, and several Turkish and Ragusan vessels, which had been de- tained by the enemy. The Hamburgh Mail also brings accounts, that the Beys had rallied in very great force near Cairo, under the direc- tion of several English Officers ; and that on the 9th of Sep- tember, a dreadful conflict took place with the army of BUONAPARTE, when the Turks, as they expected, met with a very obstinate resistance : they however obliged the French to evacuate the city of Cairo, and its environs, and retire to Rosetta. The battle lasted almost the whole day, and vast numbers of the Arabs, as well as the French were killed. BUONAPARTE'S army was reduced to 10 or 12,000 men. After this defeat, it is said, he proposed terms of ca- pitulation, which were those of being suffered to return un- molested to France; these, however, were refused, as the Beys, being in full confidence of finally obtaining a complete victory, would listen to nothing less than UNCONDITIONAL SUBMISSION The crews of eight French vessels at Constantinople have been made prisoners. Since the rebels in Turkey are NO longer formidable, the Russian troops ordered through' Moldavia to Widden, it is said, will continue their march to Italy. Several magazines are said to have been established on the Austrian Hereditary Estates for the Russian columns marching to Germany. In letters from Leghorn, it is stated, that a war between the French and the KING of NAPLES is now considered as inevitable.— The former have laid an embargo upon all Nea- politan ships at Marselles and Toulon, and have demanded that Tuscany should acknowledge the New Roman Repub- lic, and consider . the POPE only. as a Secular Officer.' A Treaty of ALLIANCE is concluded betwixt GREAT BRITAIN and NAPLES. The dispatches of BUONAPARTE, published in page 284, contains many important particulars ; it is curious to observe this gasconading Commander saying, that the Arabs are the greatest Robbers, and the greatest Villains on earth."—. He might have with truth added except Myself and my Army " * ' . .. .... In one of his proclamations Buonaparte says " He ad- mires and loves the prophet Mahomet He paid a si- milar compliment to the POPE, a few weeks before he stript him of all his possessions ! BUONAPARTE, as was expected, lays the whole blame of the destruction of the French fleet on Admiral BRUEYS. That gallant man fortunately for BUONAPARTE is not alive to answer for himself.— He was therefore a fit person for the French General to calumniate. From the intercepted French correspondence now in this country, it is clear, that BUONAPARTE is guilty in this in- stance, as in many others, of the utmost falsehood and in- justice, as it appears from several letters, that Admiral BRUEYS had the most positive orders from the French Ge~ neral not to quit the Coast of Egypt upon any account. - BUONAPARTE makes the following very curious acknow- ledgement: " The DESTINIES have given the EMPIRE of the SEA, to our RIVALS." There is a curious fact stated in a new pamphlet just re- ceived from America, by the able and eloquent Mr. HARPUR., being a " Sketch of the STATE of AFFAIRS between France and America :" " The first blow ( says he) was struck by the capture of a French privateer on our coast, which had made prize of some of our ships, and then had the impudence to run into our own harbours for protection against the English cruizers 1 Such is French justice and honour They rob the unoffend- ing landlord in the street, and then run into his house for protection." The French have without a shadow of reason, or any pre- text whatever, captured above 2ooo American vessels. The virtuous DIRECTORY had the impudence to demand an enor- mous sum from the Ambassadors to be allowed to state their grievances. What says their Godness Reason to these facts ? Answer. The Directory had a share of the prizes ; and money they must have, without either rhyme or reason. The poor Hollanders have experienced another French Fraternal Hug ; their Convention has passed a bill, charging all the Trading Companies, Guilds, & C. to deliver up their papers, cash. & c. to Commissioners appointed by their respec tive Municipalities. The STOCKS have again risen two per Cent. 3 per Cent. Consols which were some months ago at 47, are now at 54- J. Bank of England Stock, which was some time ago at ixo, is now 133- 4— Omnium, which was at par, is at ij j prem IRELAND. WESTPORT, October 2o " It is with the greatest pleasure that I acquaint you of quietness and indufsry being again restored to this town and country,— General TRENCH having ordered about three weeks ago a detachment of the FRAZER FENCIBLES. ( under the command of the Major) to this place and Louisbourgh, they have completely dispelled the Rebels in the mountains, and even followed them to the Islands some were overta- ken and made proper examples of; a good many arms, with a vast number of pikes, were given up. The activity of the highlanders could only be exceeded by their brave- ry and humanity. We are, happy in having the prospect of the detachment remaining with us for the winter." HACKETSTOWN, OCT. 16. " The Rebel HOLT and his desperate banditti had kept undisturbed possession of the mountains and high grounds, till the GLENGARY HIGHLANDERS, under the command of Colonel MACDONALD, arrived here ; these, with a detach- ment from the 89th regiment, attacked the Rebels the very next morning, on the top of Lagnacilla, the highest moun- tain in the county of Wicklow ; which, till then, had been deemed inaccessible; killed several of them ; and had not the approach of night and. a very thick fog favoured the flight of the Rebels, the troops would have given a very geod account of them. They were, however, so panic- struck, that they never halted till they got to Oakwood. " This neighbourhood has been freed from their ravages ever since ; and so unremitting is the zeal and activity of the officers and men, that, notwithstanding the inclemen- cy of the weather in this advanced season, they have not slept three nights following on their beds for a month past." BELFAST, Oct. 30. " We have the best authority to say, that the report cir- culated yesterday morning, of the French having effected another landing at Killala Bay, is quite unfounded. " Yesterday evening got under weigh ( from this Lough) the Magnanime, of 44 guns, Hon. Capt. De Courcy, with her two prizes, La Coquille and L'Ambuscade, for Ply- mouth— also the Van Tromp, and two other prison ships, with French troops on board for Liverpool— but owing to adverse winds, they were all forced to put back again. " A great portion of the troops and seamen employed in the recent attempt on Ireland, were engaged in the similar disastrous attempt at Bantry Bay. Some of the most respec- table of their officers have been heard to say since they came into this harbour, that they have tried both the South and North of Ireland, and are heartily, sick of both. They say, that the French Government and themselves have been de- ceived with respect to the probability of success on a Hiber- nian shore. " We find among other authentic particulars respecting the late unsuccessful expedition against Ireland, that such is the extreme vigilance of the English, that this armament, in order to have any chance of slipping out, had been no less than three months on board from the time they embark ed at Brest, to the day they were Captured by Sir J. B. WAR- REN'S squadron. . They appear to have come with the view- of possessing themfelves of any snug farm that fell in their way, as some of them came provided with Wives, one of whom was brought to bed on board, ship.'' A great part of the time during which they were at sea, they had no other food except bread and beans." ' . .. . DUBLIN, Oct, s8. ,, -. The exportations of provisions from Cork and Limerick are resumed with the greatest spirt, which, together with the renewal of manufacturing industry in the northern and western counties, promise an accesSion of'nAtional wealth, which, with the return of good order, may soon heal the wounds our lately lacerated country has experienced. " The report of a Union with Great Britain is totally devoid of foundation ; and any other connection but that which exists at present between the BRITISH and IRISH Nations as subjects of the same Monarch, and respectively claiming the advantages of the same Constitution, as de- scribed by the Bill of Rights, is not intended, or even wilh- ed, by his Majesty's Ministers ; and that the report has been promulgated for the very worst purposes, by our Worthy Patriots. " Mr. BARON GEORGE, in his late charge to the Grand Jury of Dublin, thus neatly describes the consequences pro- duced by the Rebellion upon the wretched peasantry of Ire- land :—" The space which once was animated and filled by peaceful industry, and echoed the fong of joy and com- fort, is now a silent, desolate, and blighted waste.— Where all was harmony, discord now reigns ; and the dwelling which but lately presented the happy scene of a chearful wife and playful family closing with joy and blessing the day of honest labour, if it yet stands, rings with cries of the starv- ing orphan, and the frantic widow, cursing those wretches who seduced, or perhaps forced the husband into rebellion " But see how contradictory to plain sense and reason were the delusions to which so many, and some even of the better sort, had yielded. He who had assisted to the plunder of his opulent neighbour, what security had he a- gainst a similar fate i When the law is extinct, property be- comes precarious, and he who possesses it to- day holds it only until coveted by one stronger. How long could the plunderer hope to enjoy what he had thus acquired ? or would riches cease to be coveted because transferred to his hands ? No, a seCond, and a third spoiler would come, and while there existed a variety of strength, there would still be a variety and succession of the right of power. Let not, therefore, any man hope to rise in his fortunes against the Constitution and the Law ; the enjoyments of life are seldom truly estimated until forfeited or interrupted, and I trust that the people of this country, are taught to value, properly, those which they derived from a Government of law and order. " It must, Gentlemen, communicate the most lively feel- ings of joy to the heart of every good man, if offenders shall be reclaimed by that mercy which has been so liberally held forth to them ; but what clemeney may fail to produce, our brilliant Naval Victories and the force and spirit of the Bri- tish Army will effectually accomplish, by shewing United Traitors that their criminal chimeras are all impracticable, and inducing them to desist from an hopeless and perilous pursuit. As to the Conspirator of Rank, who by his speeches and writings, has for years inculcated mischief, those high- wrought fancies with which ambition has enveloped his un- derstanding, and those pre eminent distinctions which he pro- posed to himself in the event of a Revolution, must, in all probability, render him inaccessible to conviction. " Gentlemen, the vigilance and valour of the Loyal are still wanting to retrieve the character of the country, and to perfect its tranquillity, and, judging by the past, their exer- tions cannot be doubted j and finally, every man who in the recent unhappy crisis has rendered a service to his King and country, let him, after the example of the pious and viclori- ous Lord NELSON, ascribe to ALMIGHTY GOD all the merit of the achievement " " In the disfranchisement of HENRY GRATTAN, Esq; by the city of Dublin, in its corporate capacity, the resolution states that " From the evidence of both Hughes and Neil- son, before the Secret Committee of the House of Lords, it was incontrovertibly proved, that Mr. Grattan was put in possession of the constitution, and traitorous confederacies of the United Irishmen, which, by his oath as a freeman of the city of Dublin, and a Privy Counsellor, he was bound to make known, and therefore the Corporation of the first city in the kingdom, found themselves called upon to strike from their records, the names of such persons as were im- plicated in the charge of Confederacy against the King, and that Constitution, which gives freedom, unalienable rights and privileges to the loyal and deserving subject." The SCOTS REGIMENTS, at present serving in Ireland, have, on every occasion, distinguished themselves, by their activity and spirit, in crushing the rebellion, and repelling the late invasion ; and we, with pleasure, state the following facts as singularly honourable to the REAY FENCIBLES in particular:— The army, under the command of Gen. LAKE, pursued the French and Rebels four days successively, dur- ing which time they had neither tent or blanket to cover them, and, within the last 36 hours before the action, they had marched 40 Irish miles. In this long and fatiguing pursuit, the REAY FENCIBLES, under the command of Major ANDREW ROSS, distinguished themselves so remarkably, that, at the commencement of the battle,- when stationed in the centre of five regiments, they were ordered by General LAKE, to pass the two regiments in front, and charge the enemy, which they did, with such rapidity and spirit, that the enemy in dismay fled on their approach, without firing a foot, a general pursuit taking place, a dreadful carnage en- sued, and many prisoners. were taken. On the day after the action, Generals LAKE and TAYLOR, paid this gallant regi- ment the highest compliments, and the former would not al- low any other regiment to guard him, during the three days the army remained on the field of battle. About a month Thereafter Gen.- LAKE, being in Dublin, and hearing of the death of the Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment, he imme- diately, and without the solicitation of Major Ross, waited on Marquis CORNWALLIS, asked the Commission, and ob- tained it for him, doing not more honour thereby to this brave Officer than to himself, by his zeal in seizing the ear- liest opportunity of rewarding meritorious services. On Monday about 160 of the French troops lately cap- tured, in the Resolue frigate, were brought to Glasgow from Greenock. The officers were lodged in the Tontine Nov. i. THE Assembly Room, and the privates the new Bridewell - The concourse of spectators which attended was immense. A subscription was immiediately opened, to Which Lord DUNDAS, Major Gen. DruMMONd, and many of the inha- bitants of Glasgow contributed. From this fund, the mas- ter of Bridewell ( where the non- commissioned officers, pri- vates and sailors were lodged) was directed to provide for each man as follows :— As much good soup, boiled beef, mutton, and bread as he could eat, one quart of stout ale, and one glass of rum, to which was added, a sufficient quantity of tobacco for smoaking and chewing, While we observe the benevolent spirit which has dictated this mea- sure, we remark that the Conduct of the French Govern- ment in regard to our treatment of their prisoners, has been hitherto very calumnious. We however trust that this addi- tional instance of BRITISH GENEROSITY to an enemy sent For the express purpose of leaguing with Traitors to their KING and COUNTRY, will tend in some degree to convince these deluded victims of Tyranny, how grossly the national character has been belied by their ambitious Masters. On the 20th of August, the ship Bellona, of Clyde, ar- rived at Charlestown, with a valuable Spanilh prize, which she captured on her voyage from Jamaica to the Gulph of Mexico. The Bellona on the same voyage, took, burnt, and destroyed other seven vessels, viz. one ship, two brigs, and four schooners. On the 17th August, in lat. 29. 30, north, and long. 79. 45. west, she was struck with lightning, which carried away her main- mast, and shivered to pieces every yard belonging to it. The sails were burnt from the yards, and the ship was on fire for about forty five minutes. On Tuesday arrived in Leith Roads, the Pomona armed ship, Sir JOSEPH EYLES Commander, from the Elbe; which ship sailed some time sinCe with the trade from Leith Roads, which she escorted safe ; but no ships being ready to proceed with the Pomona at the time of her sailing, she came with- out any fleet. On Tuesday sailed from Leith Roads, the Lutine frigate, Capt. Monkton, on a cruize. And on Wednesday morning the Meteor gun- boat, Lieut. Pearson, with the trade for London. The Tilstone, a fine ship, built about three months since at Whitby, was burnt on her passage from Petersburgh, with a cargo of hemp.— This dreadful accident was occa- sioned by the Carelessness of the cook, who threw the snuff of a candle amongst parcel of oakum, and instead of im- mediately alarming the ship's company, tampered with it till it was impossible to extinguish it.— The people nar- rowly escaped with their lives, and the captain, after being in the boat 11 hours, in nearly a naked state, landed with the rest on the isle of Bornholme. On Monday se'ennight, the Church of Glenmuick acci- dentally took fire from some sparks from the chimney of a neighbouring house and although every exertion was used to suppress the flames, the church was burnt to ashes, as well as the whole stacks of corn belonging to the Rev. Mr. Brown. Friday night, about half past seven o'clock, a fire broke out on the premises of Mr. Andrew Roberton, at Ladyrig, which threatened to be attended with the most fatal conse- quences. We are happy to state, however, that although the scene of the conflagration was a barn immediately ad- joining to the stack- yard, and, notwithstanding that a part of the stack- yard itself was on fire, yet such was the activi- ty of Mr. Roberton and his servants, that the damage was confined to the destruction of the barn, with the loss « f some tups and a threshing machine, which were in it, and a single stack of wheat. The premises were fortunately in- sured in the Sun Fire Office. The fire was first discovered in the barn, but we have found it impossible hitherto to dis- cover the cause of the accident. The University of Glasgow have conferred the Degree of Doctor of Medicine, on William King, A. M. of Randalf- town, county of Antrim, Ireland. On Thursday se'ennight, the Ross shire Militia, quarter- ed at Banff, were inspected by Gen. HAY. They are an ex- cellent body of men, and made a fine appearance.
