BION FIRE and p..-., cl, ; And a the like proportion for the intermediate years. A nfiderable allowance will be also made, accor" ding aCt of Parliament, on the King's duty, when paid for more than one year. The Proposals of the Company, with full explana- tion .. j the method in which insurances should be ar- ranj: 1, and property defcribed, will be delivered, free of ch. • .; e, to any person who may apply at the Com pany's oflice, in Change Alley, London. The whole will be comprifed in one sheet, fo as to admit of being forwarded at the expence of single postage. The Directors beg particularly to impress on the pub- lic attention that the above offer is not made in any spirit of adventure, but on known and justifiable grounds. The saving, on - which they are entitled to calculate, will be quite equal to the reduction proposed. It is on no other looting that such an alteration of charge could be attempted, with justice to the Company, or to the public, becaufe the premiums, as they now Hand, do not admit of abatement without a clear and certain in- demnity. The objeCt of the Company is to give to perfons refiding in the country the whole benefit of a laving of which their bufinef, is fufceptible ; with no other difference than that of occafioning to fnch perfons the trifling trouble which may attend the employment of a friend in London, once in a year, or, if it be pre- ferred, once only in feveral years. The funds and resources of the Albion Company are equal to thofe of any institution formed for the fame purpofes. The conditions of infurance are more favour- able than have been yet offered ; and the rates, on which the above reductions will he made are as moderate as thofe of any Company, and, in some instances, more moderate than have been before propofed.

This Day is Pubished, In quarto, price 18s. in boards, tne Second Edition of Part I. ( Parts II, to X. may also be had either peri- odically, or together; and the succeeding Parts will be published, with an accelerated expedition, till the whole work be completed) of tHE NEW CYCLOPEDIA ; or, UNIVERSAL DICTIONARY of ARTS, SCIENCES, and LITERATURE ; formed upon a more enlarged Plan of Arrangement than the Dictionary of Mr Chambers; comprehending the various articles of that Work, with Additions and Improvements; together with the new Subjects of Biography, Geography and History ; and adapted to the prefent ftate of Literature and Science. By ABRAHAM REeS, D. D. F. R. S. Editor of the last Edition ot Mr Chambers's Dictionary, with the assistance of eminent professional Gentle- men. Illustrated with new Plates, including Maps, engra- ved for the Work by some of the most distinguished Artists. Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, Pa- ternoster- row; and the principal booksellers of Lon- don ; sold also by all the booksellers in Edinburgh. § * § The first edition of this work consisted of 5000 copies, and a second edition of all the early parts being called for in this early stage of its publication, an ade- quate idea may be formed of the estimation in which it is held by the public. The following are its principal recommendations:— 1. The Plan of this Work is intended as an improve- ment upon fimilar publications, being a medium between the plan of a dictionary and that of treatises; and com- prehending the advantages of each. The history and outlines of each Science are given under its appropriate title; and its various divisions, which can be more fatis- faCtorily explained in separate articls than in the body of a treatise, are introduced under their respeCtive terms. This is indeed the only proper plan of a Dictionary in- tended for reference when information is required, which is expeCted to be found under its most ready and familiar term in the alphabet. 2. The Editor is of acknowledged learning and indus- try, and of unquestionable experience in this department of literary labour ; the greater part of his life having been employed in editing and improving the last edition of Mr Chambers's Dictionary, and in collecting materi- als for the prefent work. 3. Among the gentlemen who have engaged to con- tribute their assistance to this work, are many of distin- guished eminence; and the lift is continually aug- menting, no opportunity being negleCted to engage the co- operation of any Gentleman whofe fervices can be of real utility. 4. The Embellishments are of a very superior descrip- tion, and will form, when completed, an incomparably more elegant and correCt set of scientific and other plates than has ever been produced. The scientific sub- jeCts are engraved by Mr Lowry, whose accurate know- ledge and improved method of execution, in this branch of the art, have not been equalled. The subjeCts of Na- tural History, Sec. are chiefly engraved by Mr Milton and Mr Scott, with corresponding taste and beauty. The Drawings are almost wholly new. 5. The Maps will be double the size usually given in similar publications, and are drawn and engraved under the direction of Mr Arrowsmith. 6. A Part, or half volume, price 18s. each, has hither- to been pubiifeed once in about four months; and, in confequence of fome arrangements lately adopted, the public may with confidence rely upon a more frequent publication. 7. A few copies are printed off on royal paper, with Proof Impressions of the Plates, price L. 1 16s. each part. WOODS FOR SALE.

BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR. SUPPLEMENT TO THE GIBRALTAR CHRONICLE. GIBRALTAR, NOV. 2.— As we are fully sensi- ble, that every circumstance respecting the late glorious victory, as well as every incident rela- tive to the death of that truly good and great man, the late much lamented Lord Nelson, must be deeply interesting, not only to his own coun- try, but to the world in general, we have en- deavoured, since the arrival of the Victory, the ship on board of which his Lordship's flag was flying during the whole of the action, to obtain every information in our power on that subject. Previous to the action, his Lordship had fully explained to every captain in the fleet the mode in which he intended to attack the enemy's line, and every ship also received such particular secret instructions, that very few signals were requisite on the day of battle. Before the action began, however, the following sentence was conveyed, by telegraph, to all the ships in the fleet, England ex pects that every man will do his duty. On its being explained by the captains to their several crews, it was received with an enthusiasm which shewed that the expeditions of their country would not be disappointed on this occasion ; and indeed, from the accounts of every officer who was present, we believe it is impossible to convey an adequate idea of the general exultation and joy that pervaded every ship, at the prospect of bringing the enemy's fleet to action. By none, perhaps Was this so forcibly and sincerely felt as by his Lordship. After the many anxious days and nights that he had passed, since the commencement of the war, in watching or pur- suing the flying foe, he now, for the first time, had the satisfaction to behold the enemy he had so long sought for, drawn up to receive him, and in a situation where they had neither batteries nor mooring chains to trust to for protection. Whilst bearing down upon the enemy's line, he repeatedly said, " that it was the happiest day of his life, and that from the plan of attack which he had laid down, he expected, that he should have possession of twenty ofthe enemy's ships be- fore night:" a prediction which was verified in so remarkable a manner, that we hardly know whether most to admire the consumate science and wisdom with which the plan of attack was pre- viously arranged, or the cool intrepidity with which it was carried into complete execution ; as not one single ship escaped of that part of the enemy's line on which his Lordship had directed the principal effort to be made, and the total number of ships which had actually surrendered before night, we have now every reason to believe was twenty, of which the Achille and a Spanish ship were burned, and the Redoubtable sunk after the action ; but all of them had previoully struck their colours. It was his Lordship's intention to have broken through the enemy's line, between the tenth and eleventh of the enemy's ships in the van, at the same time that Admiral Collingwood penetrated their line, about the twelfth ship from the rear; but, finding the enemy's line in that part so close, that there was not room to pass, he ordered the Victory to be run on board of the ship which op- posed him, and the Temeraire, by which the Victory was seconded, also ran on board of the next ship in the enemy's line ; so that these four ships lay for a considerable time engaged togeth- CJ, in one mass, as it were, and so close, that the flash of almost every gun fired from the Victory, set fire to the Redoubtable, to which ship she was at that time opposed ; whilst our seamen, with the greated coolness, were, at intervals, employed, in the midst of the hotted fire, in throwing buc- kets of water to extinguish the flames on board of the enemy's ship, left, by their spreading, they might involve both ships in dectruction. We question if ancient or modern history can pro- duce a more striking example of cool and delibe- rate valour, than what we have just recorded, and it certainly reflects the highed honour upon the discipline and intrepidity of the ship's crew. It was during the hottest part of the action that his Lordship received his fatal wound, whilst engaged with the Redoubtable and the French Admiral, at the fame time. The enemy's ships' tops were all crowded with soldiers, who had orders to aim particularly at the officers on the quarter- deck. The Victory was, in general, fo completely enveloped in smoke, that it was diffi cult to distinguish any particular person on board ; but, unfortunately, for a few feconds, when the smoke was more dispersed than usual, a foldier took aim at Lord Nelson, from the mizen top ofthe Redoubtable; and, the instant he fired, his Lordship fell, the ball entering near the left shoulder, palling through the lungs, and lodging in the spine. He was immediately sensible of the wound being mortal, and said, with a smile, to Captain Hardy, with whom he had been talk- ing at that moment, " They have done for me at last !" He was soon obliged to be carried off the deck; and, as they were conducting him be- low, he remarked the tiller rope being too flack, which he desired them to acquaint Captain Har- dy with, and have it tightened. His anxiety for the event of the day was such as seemed totally to surmount the pains of death, and every other consideration ; he repeatedly sent to inquire how the battle went, and expres- sed the most lively satisfaction to find it favour- able. His lower extremities soon became cold and insensible, and the effusion of blood from his lungs often threatened suffocation ; but still his eyes seemed to brighten, and his spirits to re- vive, at hearing the cheers given by the crew of the Victory, as the different fhip* of the enemy surrendered. About four o'clock he became ex- ceedingly anxious to see his friend Captain Har- dy, and he sent for him several times before that gallant officer thought it prudent to quit the deck at so interesting a moment. About five o'ciock, however, when he faw that the victory was completely decided, and the bat- tle nearly ended, he was enabled to attend to the last wishes of the dying hero, who eagerly en- quired how many ships were captured ! On be- ing told by Captain Hardy, that he was certain of twelve having stuck, which he could see, but that probably mote had surrendered ; his Lord- ship said, " What, only twelve? there should at least have been fifteen 0r sixteen, by my calcula- tion ; however ( after a pause, he added), twelve is pretty well." He now said, that he felt death fast approaching, and that he had but a few mi- nutes to live ; that he would have wished to sur- vived a little longer, to have seen the fleet in safety ; but as that was impossible, he thanked God that he had outlived the action, and had been enabled to do his duty to liis country. About this time he was again roused, by hearing another cheer from the crew of the Victory, at their seeing some more of the enemy's ships strike their colours ; at which he expressed the highest satisfaction., cm learning the cause, and shortly af- wards expired without a groan. The Frenchman, by whose hand this match- less hero fell, was soon afterwards shot by M. Pollard, midshipman of the Victory, and was seen to fall out of the mizen- top; and the Re- doubtable was so dreadfully shattered, that, foon after striking her colours to the Victory, she went to the bottom, with must of her crew ; so that his fall was greatly avenged. The loss in the Victory was chiefly sustained whilst going into action, when, as the leading fhip of the division, she had to sustain the fire of eight of the enemy's ships, for nearly 20 minutes, be- fore she returned a gun. She also sufFered consi- derable loss from the musketry of the enemy ; but so tremendous and well directed was the fire from the Victory, that every ship on which she got her guns to bear, was silenced in the course of a few broadsides. The Redoubtable, alone, had no less than 30 of her guns dismounted, and, for a considerable time before she struck, she did not return a single shot. It was his Lordship's intention to have enga- ged the Bucentaure at first, if he could have dis- tinguished her ; but, singular as it may appear, no person on board could discover the French Ad- miral's flag to be flying during the whole of that day, though the Victory was, for a confiderable time, within pistol- shot of her, and handled her so severely, as to render her incapable of taking any share in the engagement afterwards Three of the French ships in the van, who had no part in the action, and one of which car- ried a Rear- Admiral's flag, had the inhumanity and cowardice, as they were making their escape, to fire, for a considerable time, upon the Santissi- ma Trinidad, and several other of the crippled 1 Spanish prizes, after they had surrendered to us, which, from their situation, were incapable either r _ I mathematical learning by of opposition or flight; and an immense number of the Spaniards were killed and wounded, from t is unprecedented and bloody deed of their good and faithful allies. We solemnly pledge our credit for the truth of this extraordinary fact, to which every officer on board of our victorious squadron, now in the Bay, can bear witness. indeed such was the in- dignation felt and expressed by the Spaniards, a, the conduct of the French, that, when, two days after the action, seven of the enemy's ships came out of Cadiz, in hopes of retaking fome of the disabled prizes, the crew of the Argonauta, in a body, offered their services to the British officer who had the charge of the prize, to man the guns againft any of the French ships ; and they were actually stationed at the lower deck guns for that purpose, whilst the Britifsh seamen manned those of the upper deck. The British officer on board returned all the Spanish officers their arms, and placed the most implicit confidence in the honour of the Spa- niards, which he had no reason to repent ; as, though their numbers were so superior as easily to have enabled them to retake the ship, yet they, on every occasion, shewed the utmost submission and good conduct, and declared that, if a Spa- nish ship came along side of them, they would quiet- ly go below, and leave the British to act for themselves. Extract of a letter from Lord Nelson to his confidential Friend; Alex. Davison, Esq. of St James's Square Victory. " Day by day, my dear friend, I am expect. ing the fleet to put to sea, every day, hour, and moment ; and you may rely, that if it is within the power of man to get at them, that it shall be done ; and, I am sure that all my brethren lo « k to that day as the finish of our laborious cruise, The event no man can say exactly, but I must think, or render great injustice to those under me. that let the battle be when it may, it will never have been surpassed. My shattered frame, if survive that day, will require rest, and that is al 1 shall ask for. If I fall on such a glorious occa sion, it shall be my pride to take care that m friends shall not blush for me—- these things ar in the hands of a wise and just Providence, and his will be done. 1 have got some trifle, thank God, to leave to those I hold most dear, and have taken care not to neglect it. Do not think I am low spirited on this account, or fancy any thing is to happen to me ; quite the contrary.— My mind is calm, and I have only to think o destroying our inveterate foe. I have two fri gates gone for more information, and we all hope for a meeting with the enemy. Nothing can be finer than the fleet under my command. What ever be the event, believe me ever, my dear Da vison, your much obliged, and sincere friend, " NELSON AND BRONTE." was early instructed in his father and Dr Hutton, then of Newcastle, now an ornament of his country in the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. He acquired practical navigation in the same fchool which bred Captain Cook, the circumnavigator— the Coal Trade-, and, entering the navy, he served during the whole of the American War, chiefly in the squadron commanded by Admital Barrington. Many of our first- rate officers were Barringto- nians in early life, and are, to a man, skilful in naval tactics. Captain Rotheram was first lieu- tenant of the Culloden in the memorable battle won by Lord Howe and commanded the French ship Le Vengeur as long as she could swim, sa- ving the lives of many poor fellows when she funk. So far from her crew having gone down crying Vive la Republique, as was falsely asserted in France, they laboured under the deepest de- pression of spirits, and clung round the knees of Captain Rotheram, after their own commander had quitted the ship, which he knew could not be kept long above water, and which, there is every reason in the world to believe, he expected and hoped would carry Captain rotheram and the party who had taken possession to the bottom. In the moment of the ship's sinking Rotheram's self- possession and intrepidity were remarkably difplayed. He was made post- captain in 1800. During the latter part of the last war be com- manded the Lapwing of 28 guns. In the Royal Sovereign he had a glorious opportunity of evin- cing both his seamanship and bravery, and he act- ed a part worthy of himself. The Hon. Capt. Henry Blackwood, the gal- lant Commander of the Euryalus, of whom such favourable mention is made in Admiral Coiiing- wood's dispatches, is the sixth and youngest son of a noble Irish family, and one of the most dis- tinguished officers in the service. He first ac- quired the rudiments of his profession under Ad- miral Macbride, and was present in some ot the most brilliant actions of the war before last. Ar different periods, and in various quarters of the globe, he has served under all the great Admi- rals of the present reign. He served under Lord Howe in the Royal Charlotte, as his signal mid- shipman, during the period of the Spanish arma- ment. From this ship his Lordship promoted him to be a Lieutenant. In the memorable ac- tion of the 2d of June 1794, last war, ( again nder his Lordship's command) he was First Lieutenant of the Invincible, ot 74 guns, when she captured the Jusfe, an 84 gun ship, after a close fought action of two hours, yard- arm and yard- arm. The slaughter in the French ship was immense. On the return of the fleet to Ports mouth, he was made Master and Commander, and appointed to the command of the Maegera fireship, attached to the Channel fleet under Lord howe. From this ship he was promoted > o the command of the Brilliant frigate, of 28 guns in this smail vessel, after chasing a Spanish f i gate of superior force under the batteries of Te- neriffe, he was engaged by two French frigate , of 44 guns eacn, La Vcrtu and La Regenere : La Vertu first brought him to action, and was beaten off with the loss of her foremast. He maintained as successful a conflict with her con- sort, and escaped uncaptured. On his return' he was made Post Captain, and rewarded for his brilliant exploit with the command of the Pene lope, a new frigate of 36 guns, and attached to Lord Nelson's fleet in the Mediterranean. in this ship, which for discipline, and sailing, and manoeuvring, was the admiration ot every officer who there witnessed her, he was stationed by his Lordship off the harbour of Malta to watch t > e Guillaume Tell, a Fiench 84 gun ship, bearing an Admiral's flag, which had escaped from the battle of Aboukir, and was there blockaded by a part of our fleet. Under cover of a dark night, and a gale of wind, she attempted to elude the vigilance of Captain Blackwood, and had clear- ed the harbour, when she was attacked by the Penelope, raked, and otherwise so roughly da- maged in her yards and rigging, as to enable our ships to come up with and capture her at day- break. In this action the master of the Pene- lope had his head shot off. The British and French Commanders did ample justice to Captain Blackwood's conduct on this occasion. In their public dispatches to their respective Governments he was honourably mentioned, and the French Admiral in his letter, published in the Moniteur, scribes his capture to the heroic intrepidity of lie Commander of the English frigate, in pre- vioully bringing him to action, and damaging h s He was put in charge of the prize, to tow her into port. On the expedition against the French in Egypt, he served under Lord Keith with considerable distinction. At the breaking out of the present war, he was among the first te press forward again, at the call of his country, and was immediately appointed to the command of the Euryalus, of 38 guns, then just launched, in which frigate, on the coast of Ireland, under Lord Gardner, at Boulogne under Lord Keith, and at Cadiz under Lord Nelson, he has again distinguished himself for his activity and ability nd performed he services which have been so justly noticed by his present Commander numerous chapels of ease, the meeting- houses of the different sects and denominations of the dis senters— all were crowded with the patriotism and piety of the land. In an age, which is, per- haps, too luxurious, and which has been exposed to the censure of the moralist and the divine, as too apt to forget the great source of all human benefits, we cannot refuse ourselves the satisfac- tion of considering this striking feature in our n - tional character, as a glorious proof that the great body of the people of England are still, not only the warmest lovers of their inde- pendence, and the highest patterns of bravery, but among the foremost in their attachment t their loyalty, and in the number of the most sin- cere, in their estimation and reverence of tbe sa- cred duties of their religion. Yesterday morning the Royal Family, accom- panied by General Fitzroy, Colonels Taylor, and Desbrow, Ladies Sydney and Ely, went to St George's Chapel, and. heard a sermon preach- ed by the Rev Dr Cookson, from the 50th Psalm, and 15th verse. Dr Glasse preached before the Princess Char- lotte of Wales, at the Chapel Royal. Her Roy- al Highness fat in the Princesses' closet, and was attended by the Bishop of Exeter and Lady De Clifford. Lord Mulgrave and a number of the Nobility, were present. After the sermon, an anthem—" Sing unto God," by Dr Croft, was sung by Messrs Nield, Goss, Welch, and W. Knyvet. The sermon at St Paul's Cathedral was preach- ed by the Lord Mayor's Chaplain, the Rev. Mr Hatt, in prefence of his Lordship, his Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge and his Staff, several Noblemen, and a vast number of Military Officers, the Hon. Artillery Company, and a nu- merous congregation The text was taken from he 23d chapter of the 2d book of Samuel, part of the loth verse : — And the Lord wrought a great victory that day." A more appropriate sermon could not be de- livered. His Royal Highness gave a donation of 50I. ; the Lord Mayor contributed- the same sum ; and the Officers belonging to his Royal Highness's Staff subscribed liberally according to their rank. The whole sum collected on the oc- casion an. ounted to 300l. iid. At this place even the beggar came to over his mite, and as small a coin as a farthing was received. The crowd round the doors of the Cathedral was veey gnat, and attracted the notice of the pick- pockets. We are sorry to say, that the collection they made for their find was enormous ; a Common- Council- man, attendant on the Lord Mayor, when about to subscribe to the charity of the day, found that he had been robbed of his purse. All the churches and chapels in the metropo- lis were well attended, and liberal collections made for the relief of the sufferers in the late glORIOUS actions. L O N D O N— DECEMBER 6. GENERAL THANKSGIVING. Yesterday, being appointed, by authority, a? the day of General and Public Thanksgiving, was observed with remarkable, and, perhaps unex- ampled attention in this metropolis, and we have no doubt, throughout the empire at large. The day exhibited the most gratifying, solemn, and As it has been justly said, that every Briton concerned in the memorable battle of Trafalgar was a hero, there can be nothing uninteresting that relates to any character conspicuous among such heroes; we have therefore much pleafure " giving the following particulars respecting Captain Rotheram, who commanded the Royal Sove- reign on that glorious occasion, as some mistakes have appeared in several of the public prints. Captain Rotheram is a Northumbrian by birth,! edifying of spectacles; the spectacle of a power but he was born at Hexham, not at Newcastle. His father more than forty years ago removed from Hexham to Newcastle, where he lived ma- ny years Senior Physician of the Infirmary, and of high estimation, both as a medical practitioner and a man of general science. Captain Rothe- ram's elder brother, Dr John Rotheram, was educated at the high school in Newcastle, and studied physic and natural philosophy under Lin- naeus at Upsal. He attended that illustrious man in his last illness. Dr Rotheram resided at Turnham Green about fifteen years ago, and conducted the Monthly Review, of which . the late Dr Griffiths was the ostensible proprietor and editor; and he died lately professor of na- tural philosophy in the Univerlity of St An- drews in North Britain. Captain rotheram ful and favoured nation offering" their sincere and pious acknowledgments to the Great Disposer of all Events, for his good providence, vouchsafed to them in the achievement of one of the great est and most splendid triumphs, over a combina- tion of foes, that the annals of the world have yet been able to record. Never, upon any occasion, was the universal sentiment of national gratitude for the assistance of Heaven more eminently displayed, than by the immense numbers who flocked with eagerness, to consecrate the success of their country, by their humble prostration in the Temples of the Most High. No difference existed between Chridian Britons, in the acknowledgement of a blessing, in its consequenceS common to all. The Metro politan Church, the various parish churches, the The extra ships Tottenham and Lord Eldon, from Bencoolen, arrived on Thursday off Ports- mouth, under convoy of the urgent gun- brig— They sailed from St. Helena the 2d of October The Worcester and Skelton Castle, and the Naye, Danish indiaman, were left at St. Hele- na. The Bridgewater had not arrived at St Hele na on the 4th of October, the day on which a Dane sailed from thence. The Brunswick, we regret to state, was cap- tured off Point de Galle,. the i. ith of July, by Admiral linois, in the Marengo, accompanied by the Belle Poule frigate, an ! was afterWards lost in False Bay. The Brunswick sailed fi om Bombay the 1st of July. The Marengo and belle Poule anchored at the Cape the 13th of September, where Capt. Grant and his officers were landed on their parole, On the 21 ft they embarked on board the Dane- broog, a Danish East Indiaman, for St Helena, accompanied by Mr Pearse, purser, and Messrs More and Halhead, midshipmen. The Dane, with Capiain Grant, & c. sailed from that island the 7th of Oflober, and arrived off Dartmouth on Wednesday. The crew of the Brunswick were to be sent from the Cape to St Helena a cartel. Captain Grant states, that in September he fell ' n with Admiral Trowbridge, and some ln- diamen , that the French bore down to engage, but were beaten off, and made their escape by dint of superior sailing. The Sarah country ship is supposed to have been lost near Point de Galle. The Policy, St Vincent, and Britannia, whalers sailed from St Helena, with the Tottenham and Lord Eldon, and arrived off Dartmouth with these ships. We have been favoured with the following extract of a letter from an officer on board the Lancaster, in the Indian seas, dated ift June:- Notwithstanding the vigilance of our squadron number of privateers have taken opportunities of slipping out of the Mauritius, and have done much damage a- mongst the trade on the Malabar coast. We have been cruizing for some time, in hopes of falling in with large vessel, which is said to have made its appearance between Travancore and Cape Comorin, in April last, and which, during the dark nights, had continued to send on shore several French emissaries, charged with dis- patches to the Native Princes hostile to the British inte- refts in India. Some of those persons have since been apprehended by the Rajah. Several large praams, or gun boats have been constructed in the creeks of the island, and are brought under cover of the batteries, where they are arranged in formidable order. They appear to be principally manned by the natives under the command of European Officers. These vessels carry some very heavy guns; but they are only calculated to, act 011 the defensive in case of an attack on the island, which, from the movements of our squadron, it has long been in dread of. This measure has indeed been in contempla- tion of our gallant Commander, Sir Edward Pellew, but we must be cautious of endangering our ships, till l. i- nois* force in these seas is reduced. We therefore think the attempt is. for the present, postponed. Some skilfu engineers have lately arrived at the island, by a sloop of war from Europe." A Privy Council will be held this day, and a proclamation will be ordered for the further pro- bation < 5i Parliament till the 31st of January. We are happy that this arrangement can be made confidently with public business, as will enable country gentlemen to spend their Christmas on their estates. Yesterday morning General the Earl of Har- ington had a long conference with Lord Mul- grave, at his office in Downing Street; about en o'clock in the evening ( and not before), his Lordffiip and suite left the Stable Yard, St james's, for Harwich, where he will immediate- y embark for Vienna. Letters from Hanover state that M. Bighnon, the French Envoy at Cassel, quitted that Court in dudgeon, because Mr Taylor, the English Mi- nister, was suffered to return to it. This may have been the pretext, but the real cause, we in- cline to think, is the devotedness of the Elector to the Court of Berlin. By letters from Gibraltar we learn that that garrison was visited on the 11 th of October by a Committee of French physicians who had been sent by that Government to enquire into the na- ture of the late dreadful pestilence which made such ravages in that garrison and other parts of the the south of Europe. The President of this Committee was the cele- brated Desgenettes, Inspector General of the French Military Hospitals in Egypt, that virtu- ous physician who so nobly resisted the commands of Bonaparte to poison the sick and wounded of his army at Jaffa, but which an apothecary was afterwards found villainous enough to perpetrate. The report made by these gentlemen, after ha- ving visited the different parts of Spain where the disease had appeared, is extremely satisfactory, as they seemed fully convinced that the contagion was now completely extinct in Europe, and that there was no probability of its breaking out again, if proper quarantine regulations were established to guard against its future introduction from the West Indies or America, from which, from every in- formation they had received, they were unani inously of opinion that the disease had been origi- nally imported. i| A ridiculous report has been fabricated, pur- porting that a difference has arisen between the Kings of Prussia and Sweden, on account of the former having refused to place his troops under the command of the latter. But is it ail con- fident with common sense. that the King of Swe- len should return home in a pet, at the moment that his Ambassador at Ratisbon is presenting the oft energeric declaration to the Diet against the measures of Bonaparte ? All such reports, we think, ought to meet with total discredit, as they are, no doubt, fabricated by French agents, for the purpose of creating jealousies arid distrust a- mong the Allied Potentates, now the only hope' left to tbe Corsican tyrant, of being enabled to dissolve the noble coalition formed against his un- principled encroachments. Accounts from Franconia, dated Nov. 10. On the 19th tilt all the ships in the road ol Elsineur fired three discharges, in celebration the victory off Cadiz. Immediately afterwards their flags were lowered, and three minute guns fired on account of the death of Lord Nelson. Wednesday a Court of Directors was held the East India House, when Capt. Robert Ward law was sworn into the command of the ship Asia; consigned to Madras and Bengal, instead of St Helena and Bengal as as was Capt. D. Macleod into the command of the Walthamstow, consign ed to St Helena and Bengal. ay : " Travellers have observed above fifty vil- lages, on the road between Braunau and Lintz, entirely deserted by their inhabitants. Not a li- ving creature could be seen, but the bodies of soldiers were plentifully strewed all the way. The Prince of Auersberg, who took Murat's word of honour that preliminaries of peace had been signed, and who desisted, in consequence, from executing his orders to destroy tbe bridges, has, we underdand, been sent to prison. A letter from Brunn, dated Nov. 14. says,—- What the Turks attempted in vain in the end of the 17th century, fortune has permitted the barbarians of the 19th century to perpetrate. Our capital, ere you receive this letter, is in the lower of the slaves of Bonaparte, and will en- dure the most merciless, as well as the most dis- , graceful bondage. You remember, no doubt, an insurrection of the populace at Vienna last summer, under pre- tence of dearness of provisions. By the confes- sion of the insurgents, it was discovered that Bon naparte, so early as that period, meditated upon passing his Christmas in that city, though at th « time we were in profound peace with France ; f an epocha can be called peace, where one State dares and attempts every thing, and others en- dure in impotent indignation the most provoking outrages. Since, the emissaries of Bonaparte and Talleyrand have disseminated the most absurd re- iorts, and held out the most seducing promises, among my fellow subjects. On one part, they have libelled our present beloved Sovereign and his house, and held out a change of dynasty as a blessing which would finish all our fufferings ; on the other part, a destruction of the privileged classes, and a confiscation of their property, have been preached as an allurement to the ambitious, as well as to the avaricious ; to entice him who envied rank, as well as him who speculated upon plunder. " The horrors committed by Bonaparte's sol- diers every where on their march from Bavaria, will be retaliated upon them, should our force?, or those of our allies, obtain a signal victory : a defeat will not only disband, but annihilate the usurper's satellites because every where the people are secretly armed, and avowedly exasperated, and a routed French army must inevitably be a de- stroyed one. " Notwithstanding what the French papers have stated to the contrary, the Russian troops have every where preserved the greatest discipline and order, and the greatest cordiality subsists both between the armies of the two nations and be- tween the two Sovereigns and their Ministers. In all the battles a kind of loyal emulation had subsided. Where in the last glorious action at Krems, the Russian General Kutusow had a horse killed under him, our General Schmidt rode up, took his place, and was killed. This is a great loss ; he had risen from the ranks only from his talents. An aid- de- camp of Kutusow, on seeing our General fall, headed for some moments our united forces, until his Chief had recovered from his surprise and contusions; but he too was se- verely wounded. The French fought desperate- ly, because Bonaparte has tried to persuade them that those who surrender will afterwards be mur dered ; and that they are too far from their couni try to be avenged, if injured, or exchanged, if vanquished. The Princess Charlotte has taken, in the West Indies, the Cyane sloop, which was captured by the combined fleets. Great discontent prevails at Paris.— The di- trust of paper money, in consequence of the fai- lure of so many bankers, one of whom, Reca- mier's house, is for no less a sum than four mil- lions sterling, and the consequent dstresses are universal. Fouche, the Minister of Police, found the discontent to be so rapidly increasing amongst the crowds that flocked about the doors of the bank for payment of bank- bills, that he feared some disturbance, and issued a proclamation, in which he prohibits those assemblages ; in other words, forbids the people under pain of incur- ring the vengeance of the Police, to go ard de- mand payment for the bank- notes in their posses- sion. But a partial payment is to be made to peaceable citizens. But in what manner ? In- dividuals are to go before the Mayors of the re- spective districts, and to make known their wants; they are then to receive, if the Mayor and Fouche chuse, a ticket, which they may carry to the Bank, authorising the Bank, upon that tic- ket being presented to it, to give cash for the notes the ticket- holder has in his possession. Those who refuse to disclose their necessities, and to give an account of the manner in which they came by the notes in their possesson, or of the manner in which they mean to employ the money which they solicit to be permitted to receive for them, will.. of course be suspected, and no tickets will be granted them. Of this we may be fare, that none but bank- notes for small sums will be allowed to be paid in cash ; the large ones will be refused, as belonging to avaricious men and stock- jobbers. Amidst this universal distress and depreciation of paper money in France, it is cu- rious to read the dissertations in the accounts from the French army of the great discount up- on the bills of the Bank of Vienna, circulated in Swabia and Bavaria. We know that that discount has been enormously exaggerated ; but, what is the conduct of the French in Germany ? The Austrians pay for provisions and other ne- cessaries in bills which may be at a discount, but the French pay nothing at all for what they take. In such a state of affairs the people of Paris seem to care little for the successes of Bonaparte ; and though the bulletins are stuck up in every part of Paris, they are read with silent indiffer- ence. Fouche's spies swarm in every public place, coffeehouse, and street, to furnish a register of any offensive speeches, of any sarcactic jokes, or even of any significant shrugs. The prisons were never known to be so full. BANK OF FRANCE. Report of their.

This crowd consists of most part of citizens who really want money, but amongst them there are intermixed a number ol avaricious persons and stock- jobbers, and sometimes pick- pockets. It might happen that malevolence might at length, in spite of the superintendance and pre- cautions of the police, excite a tumult, Which it is prudent to prevent, in order that there may be no occasion to repress it. " Measures must therefore be taken to isolate and frustrate cupidity and malevolence, and to facilitate to peaceable citizens the exchange of their notes for cash. " I have therefore charged Messieurs the Mayors to make themselves acquainted with the wants of individuals in their respective districts, and to distribute a certain number of tickets, which the bearers may present at the bank, and receive calh in exchange for their notes. By this means the cash will not be diverted from its proper chan- nel, and honest men will not be placed at the mercy of stock- jobbers. 41 I request that his Excellency the Minister of the Public Treasure, who has collected infor- mation relative to the real situation of the bank, will assure the timid that they need not be dis- quieted with respect to the solidity of the establish- ment. The Minister of Police, " FOUCHE." PLyMOUTH, Dee. 3.— Came in his Majesty's ships Belleisle and Bellerophon, of 74 guns each, from Gibraltar. PORTSMOUTH, Dec. 4— This day at noon arrived the Victory, of 100 guns, with the flag of the immortal Nelson flying at half mast ; she anchored at St Helen's till to- morrow morning, when the tide will bring her up to Spithead.— Admiral Montagu's ship made the signal, soon after her arrival, for the ships at Spithead and in the harbour to lower their flags and pendants to half- mast. Dec. 5 The platform and ramparts have been crowded all day with persons anxiously waiting in order to witness the ceremony of land- ing the remains of Lord Nelson. It is under- stood that the body will be landed at the Dock- yard ( as in the case of Lord Hugh Seymour), and that it will proceed from that place to Lon- don in ( lately procession, the order of which is not yet made public. The ships flags are only half mast high, which, with other circumstances denoting a public mourning, has created a sensa- tion that gives peculiar Solemnity to the day. LLOYD'S MARINE LIST— Dec. 6. The body of Lord Nelson was put in spirits the day after the action, in which state it will be brought to Greenwich, where it is to be shifted into the shell coffin made out of the main- mast ot the French flag- ship L'Orient : this shell is lined with white quilted satin, and the outside covered with black cloth ; over this is placed the brass plate, on which is inscribed Captain R. Hollo- well's certificate of the coffin being made of the wood of the said French mast, picked up by his boats at sea, after the action of the Nile. It is stated that it was the Naval Telegraph, lately invented by Sir Home Popham, which . Lord Nelson used. It was by this new tele- graph that Lord Nelson, at a distance, out of sight of Cadiz, was enabled to communicate with his cruizers close in with that port, and to know what the enemy were doing, as accurately as if he had been on the spot; while he was so far a- way that tbe enemy did not believe him to be within reach. It was by this telegraph too that he said to his fleet, as it was going into action, " England expects that every man will do his duty." The following is an extract of a letter from on board the Union transport, in the River Elbe opposite Cuxhaven, dated Nov. 18 :— " After a very dangerous passage, of 13 days, we arrived safe here. One transport, with troops, is entirely missing ; another went upon the sands, but the troops were all saved, and we hope to find that the other has arrived safe in the Wefer. The weather is dreadful, and the coast abounds with shoals and sands. This day we landed at Cuxhaven, dined, and are just returned on board. Part of the troops will debark to- morrow morn- ing, and march immediately for Bremen, which place, I believe, will be our head- quarters. The Guards follow on Thursday— I suspect we shall accompany them. We hope that the King of Prussia has at lad adopted a decided course. In- deed, we have every reason to presume it ; as, Otherwise, we could not proceed upon our march through the country we are going into. I sus- pect I shall see a little more of Germany, and perhaps Holland, than you did in your summer tour. I only pray to be kept out of a French prison j I would much sooner be shot dead than experience French mercy." The Naiade French corvette, of 22 guns and 250 men, is captured by the Beaulieu frigate, and carried into Barbadoes. The Marengo French man of war, and Belle Poule frigate, from the Isles of France, arrived at the Cape of Good Hope 13th Sept.

The Speedwell privateer, of Guernsey, has taken and carried into that island the Tres Amigos, from St An- dero to Vera Cruz, armed with 6 nine- pounders and 30 men, captured after an action of 50 minutes. The Atlantic, Utting, from Cardiff to London, is stranded at the back of the lsle of Wight; great part of the cargo expected to besaved.

The Port- au- Prince, Duck, from London to the South Seas, was all well round Cape Horn the latter end of June. EDINBURGH— DECEMBER 9 Tbe mail from Hamburgh due on Wednesday- has not yet arrived, nor have we received any French or Dutch papers since our last. The mail is most anxiously expccted by Ministers, who look with great anxiety to the next dispatches from Lord HARROWBY. They arc expected to be de- cisive .' of the opening of negociations for a general peace wilh BONAPARTE, or the instantaneous co- operation of Prussia with the confederated Powers More than sufficient time has certainly elapsed for the return of BONAPARTE'S answer to Berlin, and its transmissic. i to England. All the members of the Cabinet are either in London or in the neigh bourhood, for the purpose of an immediate meet- ing to take into consideration the expected dis patches. The want of intelligence from the Continent, is always productive of a number of reports. It was rumoured on Friday in London, that Government had received intelligence that a second defeat ofthe French has taken place, under the walls of Vienna, attended with great slaughter ; and the death of BONAPARTE is again reported. It was also said, that MASSENA had been completely defeated bv the Archduke CHARLES ; and that the Prussian armies were in full march to form a junction with the troops of th4 allies.— A- day or two will show if there is any truth in these rumours. Although BONAPARTE has gained possession of Vienna, he has failed in his grand object, that of intimidating the Emperor of GERMANY ' into a se- parate peace— lie has failed in his project to sur round and cut off the army of ( he Archduke CHARLES— he has failed in his design of outflank- ing the allied artny, and forcing them into a disad- vantageous action. Having thus been unsuccess- ful in executing those intentions, ihe completion of which alune could have been of any service to him, the possession of Vienna becomes of little consequence, and the distance he has advanced into Germany will only tend to embarras and per- plexhim, pcrhaps. be the means of ruining his aimy- His gieat distance from France and his supplies, his want of a new army to support him, the dif- ferent divisions of his army being much dispersed, and his German friends but lukewarm in his cause, must render his situation very hazardous. If he attempts to retreat, it must be done through an hostile country, where the excesses of his troops have excited the deadly hatred of the inhabitants, who would take every opportunity of annoying a defeated and scattered army. This retreat must, also be conducted through a country already ex- hausted, where his nearly famished troops would scarcely be able to obtain a scanty meal. It is very probable that long ere this time a ge neral battle has in a great measure decided the fat. of the campaign. Should it prove against BONA- PARTE, his army must be exposed to the greatest danger ; while the Austiians and Russians, eve 1 if they should experience a reverse, would daily receive reinforcements which would enable thein again to face their enemies. The armies of Rus- sia and Austria near Brunn are little short of 200,000 men. I'he German papers left the Archduke CHARLES at Laybach, the capital of Carniola, 011 his way to Vienna. He had of course got the start of the French division, which had advanced to Clagen- furt to interrupt his progress. The detachments which proceeded by Bruck and Gratz, are the on- ly obstacles which he would be likely to encoun- ter upon his march. Of the inability of MASSENA to attack him in rear with effect, we entertain san- guine hopes. It appears that MASSENA gave up the pursuit at the Tagliamento ; as we find the ARCHDUKE had retreated in the best order to Lay- bach, and do not understand that he was harrass- ed in his march, by the French. Several causes, independent of the great ability of the Archduke, and of the courage and strength of his armv, may have contributed to deter MASSENA from any fur- ther attempt to overtake him, and bring on a ge- neral battle The Russians, to the amount of 34,000 men, reinforced by the English troops from Malta, are said to have sailed from Corfu, on the 17th ot Oc- tober, and to have arrived safely at Venice. Thi force, with that which the Austrian? left in Ve- nice, will be able to incommode and harrassMA?- SENA in his rear, and effect a powerful diversion in favour of the Archduke. From the lowest estimate of their number, they must be sufficient tooccupv the attention of, al least, 30,000 men. The very- state of the country also renders it absolutely ne- cessary that MASSENA should leave behind him a considerable force in Italy. It is well known, that it is not wedded in affection to France ; and that nothing but the terror of French bayonets prevents it from manifesting its disposition in favour of Austria. To preserve a military station of so much importance, and with it the kingly crown of Italy, objects of sufficient importance to induce MASSENA to forego the pursuit of the Archduke CHARLES to Vienna. If the French General should have adopted the resolution of following the Archduke, even with the majority of his army, the Russians, will gain a strong footing in Italy; and, aided " by forces from Malta and England, might shake, if not wholly detach, the iron crown nf Lombardy, from the golden sceptre of France. On the other hand, should MASSENA follow with any thing less than the majority of his armv, he would not be able to make any impression upon the Archduke. It is, thetefore, very probable, that this gallant Prince will be able not only to effect his retreat to Vienna, but to accomplish that great object, without much loss. We are happy to state, that the Victory man of war, with the body of Lord NELSON on board, has at length arrived safe at Portsmouth. The Belleisle and Bellerophon at Plymouth. One of the King's yachts is to go round to Portsmourh, to take on board the body of Lord NELSON, and convey it to Greenwich. Orders for that purpose have already been issued. We feel a melancholy satisfaction on finding that no chance ofthe seas has deprived us of his valuable remains. Having returned our thanks to the AL- MIGHTY, we can now turn to the Hero who was in his hands the secondary cause ofthe greatest and most. effective naval victory, that ever distinguished any age or nation ! Monday last the Channel fleet, under the com- mand of Admiral CORNWALLIS, sailed from Fal- mouth to resume their station off Brest. Two Dutch frigates succeeded last Saturday in putting to sea from Flushing. The Resistance, Leopard, and Flora frigates were immediately sent in pursuit of them, and as thev had intelligence of the course ihey took, hopes are entertained of their coming up with thein. Bv the arrival of the Tottenham and Lord EI don from Bencoolen, we have received some intel ligence of our shipping in India. We find that the gallant French Admiral LINOIS, in Septem ber last, fell in wtth Admiral Sir T. TROWBRIDGE and some Indiamen, but after becring down on our ships, he was beat off, and retired in his usual style, covered with glory, We are agatn assured that Parliament will not meet till Tuesday, the 21st of January. WILLIAM INGLIS, Esq. is appointed Lieute nant- Colonel Commandant or' the Loyal Edin- burgh Spearmen, in room of the late Mr JOHN BENNET. At a general meeting of the Members of the Linlithgow and Stirlingshire Hunt, held at Lin- lithgow on the 2d inst. the following Office- Bear- ers were elected for the ensuing year, viz. The Hon. Alexander Hope, M. P. Preses. Thomas Livingston, Efq. of Parkhall,? James Graham, Efq. of Underwood, £ '' J. Boyd, Treas. and Sec. Mr WILLIAM WARDEN, surgeon in the Roy- al Navy, from Alyth, in Perthshire, lias received 100I from the Patriotic Society at Lloyd's, and been voted an outpensioner of Greenwich Hos- pial, acd has also received the public thanks 0f the sick and hurt on board, for his conduct In and after the aflioa between his Majesty's ship Phoenix and the French ship La Didon. Thursday was obferved in Glasgow as a day of religious thanksgiving by all classes of men The volunteer corps attended public worship, and the churches were uncommonly crowded ; very liberal collections were made ; the amount of the, whole cannot be specified, as some dssenting congregations have nor . made their collections; but we understand that the fum already received amounts to between two and three thoufand pounds, to be applied to the humane purpofe of relieving the families of our brave feamen who have suffered in defence of their country. As the gentlemen of the royal Glasgow volunteer light horse went into the High Church, a letter was laid into, the collection plate, addressed to Principal TAYLOR., their Chaplain, containing one hundred guineas, as the contribution of the troop, in aid of the Patriotic Fund. Tuesday, a meeting of the inhabitants was held in the Town Hall, Glasgow, to confider of the pro- priety of ereCting a monument to the memory of the late Lord Viscount NELSON, when the mea- sure was unanimously approved of, and a subscrip- tion begun, which, we doubt not, will receive li- beral and general support. The first exhibition of bulls, stots, and queys, ior the premiums offered by the Perth aud For- farshire Agricultural Society, took place at inch- ture on Wednesday the 20th ult. The show was great, and afforded much satisfaction to a ref- pectable assemblage of the members of the Socie- ty and other gentlemen, among whom we noticed GEORGE PATERSON, Efq. of Castle- huntly, Co- lonel MYLNE of Mylnefield, Capt. WARREN, royal Navy, See. Two of the premiums were adjudged to Colonel MYLNE for the best bull and quey ; and the third to Mr ROBT. WEBSTER of Mains of Errol, for the best stot. The com- petition was between the Devonshire and Angus- shire breed, and the latter was preferred as most beneficial for this part of the country. Mr Paterson acquainted the Society, that after several successful experiments, for some years past, he had determined this year to sow an acre of carrots, as part of his drilled crop ; but on a correct measurement, the ground laid out, was found to be only 3 roods 33 falls. Upon which, 4 and a half lib. of the long red carrot feed were own the 10th April ; they, were taken up in Oc- •• ber, and after weighing* two drills in the field, and by cubic measure, when housed and built up, the mean weight of the first was 2695 Dutch nes, equal to 47,162 libs. English; but, by measurement, and weighing a cubic yard, the whole crop turned out only 2622 ftone Dutch, equ .. to 45,885 libs. English, on 3 roods 33 tails ; the proportion per acre, 47,892 libs.

Your general system has convinced us, that the choice made by the Commander in Chief, at the moment of these valuable colonies reverting to his Majesty's autho- rity, in appointing you to preside over them, was in the highest degree judicious; and we can with truth assure yon, that we will not soon forget the ready attention to every application, where the interests or comforts of the inhabitants were concerned, which we invariably expe- rienced from you, nor the state of security justly excitcd in our minds, from the respectable state in which the garrisons under your command have been kept. Permit us to request that you will accept, as a small mark of the sincerity of the sentiments we have expressed, of a Sword, of the value of Five Hundred Guineas, and that you will believe us to be, with much respect, Sir, Your very faithful friends and servants. 10 Lieut.- Col, Nicholson, Royals, &.

So flattering a mark of attention from a body lo truly respcCtable is most gratifying to me, and will most gratefully live in my remembrance. To a soldier the present of a sword you have honour- ed me with is most valuable, and I shall feel inexpressible satisfaction in wielding it in your defence. Permit me to assure you, the hospitality and attention I have received from you, has made an impression not to be erazed from my mind, and, though duty calls me from you to the colony of Berbice, I still hope to revisit the colonies of Demerary and Essequibo, and renew those happy days I have possessed in your society. The welfare and profperity of the colonies has ever been nearest my heart, and that the planting and com- mercial interests of them may flourish to your utmost expectation, is the fervent wish of Your most obliged friend, and faithful servant, ROBERT NICHOLSON.
