Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. LONDON, December 24. PARIS Papers to the 11th, and Dutch Journals to , the 14th instant, have been received;— The Paris papers make no mention of the battle of tho 2d; and the Dutch Journals are equally silent, with the exception of an Order issued by General Bruce, which announces that the Frcnch had obtained a great victory over the Allies; and the Batavian State Gazette of the 12th, which Hates that a decisive battle had bpen gained by the French in Moravia, on the 2d, and promises the details in the next number; for which, how- ever, there is a kind of apology for the omission. In the number of that Gazette received by our Ministers it is confidently stated, that the loss of the Allies, on the occasion alluded to, amounted to no less than 40,000 men, with the whole of the Russian artillery; which, however, we cannot, forbear repeating, was completely reversed on the follow ing day. There is an article from Paris, in one of the French papers, which states, that the head- quar- ters of Bonaparte were about to be removed back to Schoenbrunn. This seems very like an inten- tion of preparing the public mind for the retreat of the French army. In another journal it is stated, that Bonaparte intended to proceed to Munich, for the purpose, as it is hinted, of crowning the Elector of Bavaria. The Paris papers boast that the French troops in Germany would soon amount to 280,000. We trust, however, that a large part of these troops w ill ere long have to combat a" strong and efficient Prussian force. 1 he Berlin CourtGazette, of the 3d, » a\ s, that " perhaps the period has arrived when the hopes of peace have been annihilated;" a clear indication that no pacific result was expected from the mission of Count Ilaugwitz. Great preparations arc making in Holland to resist any attack upon that country. We understand the Duke of Cambridge's de- parture for the Continent is postponed. The transports, with troops, which were driven l> » ck to the Downs last week by contrary winds, sailed again on Sunday for the Weser. The embarkations at Rainsgate, & cc. for the Continent, continue whenever the weather will admit. The transports now assembled in the Downs arc competent to the conveyance of ten thousand men. More than 500 horses have recently been lost in the transports off the enemy's coasts. The Maria transport, with part of the 88th regiment on board, for whose safety much fear • was entertained, has arrived at Portsmouth, with several others that had also troops on board.— Among them is the Atlantic, with a detachment of the German Legion heavy dragoons. She was driven undct a battery at Calais, to which she struck, seeing there was no hope of escape, the wind blowing hard on the shore, and the guns keeping up an incesstvu fire; but while the boat, which was sent ashore, to say they had struck, was gone from the ship, the wind shifted, and she escaped. The boat was swamped, and the crew drowned. A letter received yesterday from Dover states, that some Prussian Captains there had received letters from their owners, desiring them not to sail without convoy, as Prussia mis at war with France; The Master of the Ocean brig, which arrived at Plymouth, on Saturday, from Lisbon, states, that on the 14th instant, in lat. 47. long. 7. he fell in with a French squadron of eleven sail, six or seven of which appeared to be of the line, who were steering W. S. W. They plundered the brig, and took away the mate, liiis might probably have been the Rochefort squadron; though some reports state it to have been a division which had escaped from Brest.— Accounts received at the Admiralty confirm the above intelligence. The frigate that boarded the Ocean was full of troops. Information of the circumstance was sent from Plymouth to Admiral Cornwallis. A letter received by the Auckland packet, which arrived yesterday from Lisbon, says, " La Topa/ e French frigate is now nearly ready for sea^ and her captain has frequently declared openly in public company, that no one frigate in the British navy shall prevent his sailing as soon as ready. La 1' omone is on the Lisbon station waiting La Topaze, and will no doubt speedily follow her : but Mons. Battdin talks of carrying La Pomone into a French port, llis Britannic Majesty's ship Constance, and Star brig, are also here." A letter received yesterday from Falmouth, dated on Saturday, says, " Lieutenant Garraty, late Commander of the Plumper gun- brig, cap- tured by the French some time since off Cherbourg, landed at Falmouth yesterday, from a Prussian vessel, only 21 hours from Morlaix. This gentle- man has brought with him the copy of a printed bulletin, circulated at Morlaix, of which the fol- lowing is a translation:— « Telegraphic Dispatch from the Counsellor of State, Minister of the Marine, to the Prefect of Brest. 1 Paris, December 11 th. ' His Majesty the Emperor of the French has beaten the Russians, near Olmutz ; destroyed the halt of their army, and totally routed the remainder.' " Lieutenant Garraty saw a printed bulletin, of nearly the same form as the above, which was cir- culate! in France soon after the glorious battle off Trafalgar; in which it was stated that the English were defeated, and had lost fourteen ships! Nor did Lieutenant Garraty know the contrary till he landed at Falmouth.— Lieutenant Garraty is about two months from Verdun. A short time before he left that place, Dr. May and an English Colonel, whose name he does not remember, were taken out of their beds, sent to Biche, and closely confined in separate prisons. The reason of this was not known." Nothing can possibly exhibit a greater contrast than a comparison between the heroic conduct of the brave and magnanimous Emperor of Russia, who seems to inherit the daring intrepidity and unshaken perseverance of the Imperial Catherine, and the mean and crafty pusillanimity of Bonaparte, in the late actions. The former led on his troops in person, and exposed himself, for hours together, in ihe hottest of the battle, while the wily com- mander of the French kept aloof, at the distance usually maintained by ordinary commanders in c iief, whence lie ordered the most vigorous and reiterated attacks on that point of the centre where the heroic Alexander was most engaged, in the malignant hope of immolating that valiant Sove- reign, and thus paralysihg the efforts of Russia. It is also said, that when the Russians came close tup with him, in his retreat, he changed his dress, most opportunely, and secretly effected his escape, leaving his Guaril of Honour to bo cut in pieces by his enemy. The many treacherous acts of the man had taught lis to expect such conduct in the hour of danger. We gave little credit to the report of his being wounded, having learned to estimate his personal courage. At the brilliant, but dearly- purchased victory of Lotli, the daring and adven- turous part of tl'ie business was achieved by the personal bravery of Generals Massena and Ber- tbier. At the bridge of Areola, indeed, he exposed his precious person for'a few minutes, at the head of a column, but he speedily retired ! Ami at the much- vaunted battle of Marengo, though he rode along the line for some time, within the range of the Austrian field- pieces, his Consular Majesty took care to disguise himself in a grey- coloured great coat!! Unlike his Imperial competitor of Russia, or the immortal Nelson, who, though it increased his personal danger three- fold, in the scene of almost inevitable death, persisted in displaying the brilliancy of his various orders, the well- earned rewards of his heroic intrepidity, and unparalleled merit. When the French entered the Tyrol, they at- tempted to call together a meeting of the States of that province, in which they did not succecd. Since then, however, they have boasted of the want of loyalty on the part of the Tyrolese to the Austrian Government. This is certainly very con- sistent with the accounts they have since given of the conduct of that people towards them'. In one instance, the French have deemed it advisable to make the heads of families responsible for the conduct of the women who should dare to fire upon, or annoy the French; and since that, we find an account of the peasantry having actually destroyed a corps of three hundred of their in- vaders. For this last proof of their sentiments towards the French, the district has been visited with military execution. When the Prussian army of reserve was filing off before the King at Berlin, his Majesty ad- dressed General Moellendorff, telling him, that it was his design to leave him in charge of the capital, as presenting less laborious service than that which he was likely to encounter at the head of an army; on which the veteran replied, " My age does not yet prevent me from serving my King; at the head of an army I shall feel young again; and should I fall, I shall prefer to die on the bed of glory, than on the bed of sickness."— The King warmly shook him by the hand, and the auditors of this interesting discourse were deeply moved. The College of Heralds, we hear, have received orders to make preparations for the establishment of a Naval and Military Order. It is added, that the installation is to take place in St. Paul's Cathedral. On Saturday evening the Patriotic Fund amounted to upwards of j£. 74,000; of this sum, 45,000 arises from contributions in churches, chapels, and other places of worship. In the codicil to Lord Nelson's will, Lady Hamil- ton is highly complimented by his Lordship for the services her Ladyship rendered to her country, in obtaining information, and facilitating the provi- sioning of the fleet in the Mediterranean, with which the illustrious hero obtained the battle of the Nile ; and, in consequence of this service, her Ladyship is recommended by the deceased to the protection of the nation. Mr. Pitt's illness is gout, and the object of his journey to Bath was to fix it. We learn, that on Sunday se'nnight an attack of the disease in the stomach excited an alarm for his life, and for three hours he continued in extreme danger, but his phy- sicians succecded in fixing i- at length in the knee, when the limb was swelled to a great size, but he was considered as out of danger. Accounts since received enable us to add, that his general health is now considerably amended. Post- Horse Duty.— On Saturday morning the Commissioners of the Stamp- Office met in the great room, in the Crown- aiui- Anchor tavern, to lett to farm, for three years, the Post- horse Duty, according to the conditions advertised. Mr. Est- court, the Solicitor to the Commissioners, attended them, and put up the several districts. When a bidding was made, he placed a glass before him, made like an hour- gla » s, containing sand, that took about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour to run out, and, when all the sand was run out, he declared the last, bidder the purchaser. The undermentioned districts, within the circuit of our paper, were lett for the following sums:— Northamptonshire, Rutlandshire, Warwick- £. shire, and Oxfordshire 13,020 Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and Lei- cestershire 9,150 Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, and Cambridgeshire 14, ISO Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire 7,010 Huntingdonshire and Hertfordshire 10,220 The lettiugs, we unrlei stand, exceeded the former three years, OF. 23,360.— Between four and five hundred gentlemen attended as bidders. The Child of two Mothers.— The parties in this strange affair appeared again at Union- Hall last Friday, when Mrs. Nott again positively swore that the child was her's, that it was born on the 9th of October, 1803, and that when she was put to bed, Dr. Hough, of Percy- street, Rathbone- place, was sent for, but that nature had performed its effort before the Doctor's arrival. She had been married, but had left her husband for some time, and a man named George English was the father of the child. Mr. Nott, her husband, mentioned her leaving him without any reasonable cause, little more than four years since, and that no subsequent cohabitation had taken place; that two years since she sent him a letter, saying she had been delivered of a child about six weeks before, and had it christened in his name, and as his child; he took no notice of the letter, as he had long ceased to pay any attention to her, nor had he ever seen or had any knowledge of the child.— Mrs. Hopkins, in very decided terms, swore that the child was her's, and was born on the 13th of October, 1803; that Dr. Hopkins of the guards laid her; and that unable to nurse the child, she was induced to put it in the care of Mrs. Nott, who thru went by the name of I'earsey, and in pursuance of her earnest request, let the child be christened in her name, and as her child. Mr. Woolburn, a publican, cor- roborated this testimony, and also swore to the identity of the child. The Magistrates wishing for further time to deliberate, adjourned the case until the Doctors ( Hopkins and Hough) can attend, and sotnc written documents be produced. Fatal Duel.— About twelve mouths ago, a officers of justice of their intention to fight, and having thereby occasioned the arrest. The time . for which these gentlemen were bound to keep the peace elapsed on Friday last, and, before the day was closed, a challenge passed from the one to the other, and an immediate meeting was de- termined upon, to decide their inveterate quarrel. — Mr. W. attended the Colonel to the ground, and Mr. II. the Major. It is with regret we add, that the first fire proved fatal to the latter, who was shot through the bead and killed on the spot. Colonel B. has made his escape. Friday evening, at six o'clock, a fire broke out in the back warehouses of Messrs. Hallett and Hardy, wholesale chemists, in Queen- street, Cheap- side. The flames w ere first seen in the warehouse situated at the back of the dwelling- house occupied by Mr. Hallett, which was soon destroyed. The dwelling- house soon became in a blazed and was also completely destroyed before eight o'clock. We are happy to hear the premises were insured to a large amount. A few evenings since, as Mr. Life, Excise- officer, of Hadleigh, Suffolk, was sitting by his fire- side with his family, some villain fired a' loaded pistol in at the window, no doubt with an intent to mur- der him. The ball grazed Mr. Life's left arm, but it fortunately did him no material injury. The principal inhabitants of the town, at a meeting held at the White- Lion, entered into a subscription, and the sum of ^'. 400 was immediately ^ collected, and offered as a reward for the discovery of the offender, but hitherto without effect. ^ An important Improvement in Boots and Shoes.*— The following method of rendering leather water- proof, at a very small expence, will be found in- variably to succeed:— Take one pint of drying- oil, two ounces of yellow wax, two ounces of spirits of turpentine, and one ounce of Burgundy pitch, melted carefully over a slow fire; with this composition new shoes and boots are to be rubbed, in the sun, or at a distance from the fire, with a spunge, as often as they become dry, until they are saturated; the leather is then impervious to wet, the shoes and boots last much longer, acquire soft- ness and pliability, and thus prepared are the most effectual preventatives against colds and chilblains. 1PURSUANT to a Decree of the High Court of Chancery, made in a Cause, KIDMAN et al, versus PALMER et al, the Creditors of Sir JOHN PAYNE, of TEMPSFORD- HALL, in the County of Bedford, Baronet, are personally, or by their So licitors, to come before Sir William Weller Pepys, Bart. one ot the Masters of the said Court, at his Chambers in Southampton- Buildings, Chancery- Lane, London, and prove their Debts, on or before the 29th January, 1806; or in Default thereof they will be peremptorily excluded the Benefit of the said Decree.

This Day is published, in Quarto, Price 18s. in Boards, the SECOND EDITION of Part I. ( Parts II. to X. may also be had either periodically or toge- ther ; and the succeeding Parts will be published, with an accelerated Expedition, till the whole Work be completed,) of RILHE NEW CYCLOPEDIA; or, UNIVERSAL - 1- DICTIONARY of ARTS, SCIENCES, and LITERATURE; formed upon a more enlarged Plan of Arrangement than the Dictionary of Mr. Cham- bers; 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 present State of Literature and Science. By ABRAHAM REES, D. D. F. R. S. Editor of the last Edition of Mr. Chambers's Dic- tionary, with the Assistance of eminent professional Gentlemen. Illustrated with new Plates, including Maps, en graved for the Work by some of the most distin- guished Artists. Printed for Longman, Hurst, Reeves, & Orme, Pater- noster- Row, and the principal Booksellers of London. Sold also by W. Birdsall, T. Burnham, and J. Abel, Northampton; and C. Jacob, Peterborough. fc- t' 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 Pub- lication, an adequate Idea may be formed of the Esti- mation in which it is held by the Public. The following are its principal Recommendations : — 1. The Plan of this Work is intended as an Im- provement upon similar Publications, being a Medium between the Plan of a Dictionary and that of Treatises, and comprehending 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 satifactorily explained in separate Ar- ticles than in the Body of a Treatise, are introduced under their respective Terms. This is indeed the only proper Plan ot a Dictionary intended for Refer- ence 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 In- dustry, and of unquestionable Experience in this Department of Literary Labour; the greater Part of his Life having been employed in editing and im- proving the last Edition of Mr. Chambers's Dic- tionary, and in collecting Materials for the present Work. 3. Among the Gentlemen who have engaged to con- tribute their Assistance to this Work, are many of distinguished Eminence, and the List is continually augment'- ^ no Opportunity being neglected to engage the Co- c . ^ pfc.- n of any Gentleman whose Services can be of rearUtility. 4. The Embellishments arc of a very superior De- scription, and will form, when completed, an incom- parablv more elegant and correct Set of scientific and other Plates than has ever been produced.

Albion Fire and Life- Office, London9 1 st December, lb05. RPIIE DIRECTORS of the ALBION FIRE L and LIFE - INSURANCE COMPANY, of LONDON, having considered the very heavy Ex- pence, and the numerous Inconveniences, attending the Establishment of Agencies, and being desirous to devise some Mode of lessening the Charges of Insur- ance to Persons resident in the Country, w ithout dimi- nishing the Security, or fair Profit, of the Company on such Business, have determined, for the present, to refrain from the Appointment of Agents; and to offer to all Persons having Buildings, Goods, or other Property, to insure, at more than four Miles distant from London, AN ABATEMENT OF NO LESS IHAN TWENTY- FIVE PER CENT, PER ANNUM, on the Pre- miums usually charged, provided such Insurances be elfected at the Company's Office in London, through the Friends or Agtnts of the Parties ; and without the Company being involved in any Correspondence, or other Duty, excepting that of supplying such Friends, i> r Agents, with every necessary Information, at the Office, for the Guidance of those who may- wish to take the Benefit ot this Offer. If Insurances be made for three or more Years at once, a further Abatement will be allowed; by which Persons insuring will not only be in a still greater Degree benefited, but will be relieved from the Trouble of frequent Renewals of their Policies. The Charges will be on the following Scale:— In Cases where the Annual Pre- mium, according to the Charge would be 2s. it will be reduced to 3s. ditto - 5s. ditto - Years. A considerable Allowance will be also made, ac- cording to Act of Parliament, on the King's Duty, when paid for more than one \ ear. The Proposals of the Company, with full Expla- nations as to the Method in whicii Insurances should be arranged, and Property described, will be deli- vered, free of Charge, to any Person who may apply at the Company's Office, in Change- Alley, London. The Whole will be comprised in one Slket, so as to admit of being forwarded at the Expence of single Postage. The Directors beg particularly to impress on the public Attention, that the above Ollei is not made in any Spirit of Adventure, but on known and justi- fiable Grounds; the Saving, on which they ate en- titled to calculate, will be quite equal to the Re- duction proposed. It is on no other Footing that such an Alteration of Charge could be attempted, with Justice to the Company, or to tlie 1' uolic; because the Premiums, as they now stand, do not admit of Abatement, without a clear and ceitain In- demnity. The Object of the Company is to give to Per- sons residing in the Country, the - whole bencjit of a Saving, of which their Business is suscej tible ; - with no other Difference, than that of occasioning to such Persons the trifling Trouble which may attend toe Employment of a Friend in London, once in a Year, or, if it be pre- ferred, once only in several Years. The Funds and Resources of the ALBION COMPANY are equal to tnose of any Institution formed tor the same Purposes. The Conditions of Insurance are more favourable than have been yet ottered ; and the Rates, on which the above Reductions will be made, are as moderate as those of any Company, and, in some Instances, more moderate than have been before proposed. The Directors are for for tor for 1 Year. 3- Years. 5 Years. 7 Years. 25 30 35 40 per cent. percent. percent. per cent. abated. abated. abated. abated. s. d. s. d. J. d.

I'M addition to the evidence which has been adduced in confirmation of the defeat of the French in Moravia, we find that a letter has been received by a respectable mercantile house in Birmingham, J'^' ed Franckfort, Dec. 6, which states as follows:—" The French have lost, in the last bloody battle, 23,000 men, and were obliged to evacuate Vienna in a great hurry, though the Russians paid dear for their victory : their loss is estimated at 16,500 men." Subscriptions have been opened in this country for the relief of the unfortunate peasantry in Germany, who have been and are now suffering all the calamitous effects of a famine, brought upon them by the mercihss rapacity of the French Usurper's numerous bands of armed ruffians. We are huppv to record this fresh instance of British benevolence, sincerely wishing that it may be successful. Ir is reported that an expedition is shortly to be sent to the south- west " coast of France, to consist of all the French emigrants in British pay, and anv others who may wish to join their standard ; to carry with them artillery, and 30,000 stand of arms. he felt it his duty to solicit all enquiry iiito the whole of his conduct, even prior to his falling in with the enemy, while in their presence, and sub- sequent thereto; this enquiry, he lamented, was confined to his subsequent conduct and pro- ceedings, thereby depriving him of giving evidence of the circumstances of the action, which he had no doubt he should have been able to prove would have added to the reputation of the British Navy. Sir Robert admitted, that it was the duty of an Officer to engage an enemy wherever he might meet with him, and that it was likewise incumbent on him to explain, satisfactorily, why he did not; he then proceeded to state, that his was not the only instance where a British fleet had laid in sight of that of the enemy, without renewing an engagement; in proof of which he mentioned the action of the 1st of June, 1794, by Earl Howe, and that of the 27th of February, by Earl St. Vincent, in both of which cases the Officers did not think themselves justified in bringing the enemy a second time to action, although they were in sight of them as long as he was; and that in the instances above- mentioned, there was no j other force to contend with, no other quarter I from which an attack was to be apprehended, than 1 the fleets which had been already engaged : in his I casf, it was his llnty to be on his guard against j the'rerrol rtnd llocnefort squadrons, consisting of twenlv- one sail of the line, both which, lie had About one oclock on 1 uesday the remains of - , r ' , ,, » , ,, , i i j y> • i , i i reason to believe, were out, and one of them teas Lord ixe son were anded atOreenwich, and p aced , ,, . , , , • , . , 1 actuul/ y at sea; and to which the squadron op- illy winch op 1 posed to him might easily have given notice of i their situation.

Mr. Gazeley and Mr. Erskine, jun. were the Counselor Advisers of Sir Robert Caldcr.— Moses Gretham, Esq. Judge Advocate. The Admiral was brought into Court by Mr. Fenton, Deputy Marshal of the Admiralty. The business of the Court immediately com- menced. The Surgeon of the Tonant was called in, and deposed that Captain Tyler could not attend, in consequence of his wounds. The President read the order for assembling the Court- Martial. It recited, that Vice- Admiral Sir Robert Calder had, by a letter to the Secretary of the Admiralty, requested that atl enquiry should be instituted with reference. to his conduct on the 23d of July last, in not renewing the engagement with the combined fleets of France and Spain. That the Lords Commissioners, actuated by a desire to do what appeared to , be for the good of tlve service, and to enable Vice- Admiral Calder. to give his reasons publicly for his conduct, had thought fit, for the reasons above- mentioned, to order that a Courf- Mai'tial should be assembled, to enquire into the conduct and proceedings of Vice- Admiral Sir Robert Calder, with his Ma- jesty's squadron under his command, on the 23d day . of July last; and also his subsequent conduct and proceedings, until he finally lost sight of the e leniy's ships; and for his not having done his utmost to renew the engagement, and to take or destroy every ship of the enemy which it was his duty to engage. The letter from Admiral Calder to Mr. Marsden was then read; it was dated Prince of Wales, off Cadiz, and expressed, that he had learnt with astonishment from some of his friends, that re- ports to his prejudice had been circulated, and that bis conduct had been improperly animadverted upon at a period when he was abroad, employed in the service of his country; and that to obviate the effect of such unfounded reports, he was desirous of having a Naval Court- Martial. The President said, as Captain Prous, one of the witnesses summoned, was not in attendance, it w as far from his wish to proceed, if the evidence of that witness was considered at all material. Ad- miral Calder observed, that his great object was to avoid creating the least unnecessary delay ; he liad therefore no objection to proceed without Captain Pious. I he log- book of the Prince of Wales was then produced, the contents verified, and extracts from it rend. ' 1 he first witness examined was Admiral Stirling, who was first interrogated by Mr. Bicknell, on the part of the prosecution, next by the Court, and j then cross- examined by Sir R. Calder.

On the 5th of July he received [ yet executed the Deed of Assignment, but are willing information that the combined squadrons had orders to leave Fcrrol and be at Corunna by the ; middle of the month; which intelligence• proved j accurate. Sir Robert then detailed the opera- i dons which he was of necessity compelled to I adopt, in compliance with the instructions received from the Admiralty Board. Finding the blockade of Ferrol was raised, and the enemy put to sea, he judged it expedient not to renew the engage- ment, being surrounded on all sides by the differ- ent squadrons, and especially from the disabled state of many of his Own squadron. Sir Robert regretted that his character should have been vi- lified and traduced in the public estimation, with- out his having an opportunity when abroad of understanding the charges. He alluded to the suppression of part of his letter, which, if it had been published, would, in the eyes of his country- men, have cleared his character from the sus- picion w hich was cast upon it. The action of the 22d, he must be allowed to say, in a great measure laid the foundation for that victory in which a Noble Lord ( Nelson), whose name will SiVlllH's BANKRUPTCY.

Whoever has found the same, and will bring it to JOHN WALTON, of Chapel- Brampton, shall receive HALF- A- GUINEA REWARD December 28th, 1805. Government " received yesterday a copy of the Argus newspaper of the 11th instant, printed at Paris, picked up in a boat off Boulogne, by the Acute gun- brig. It contains an account of the late battle, and states, that, an armistice hud been concluded between the contending ai. mies. This, ar- ticle is stated in the Argus to hat e hecn copied from the Moniteur of the preceding day ( the. 1bth), and dated from Austorlitz on the 5th instnnt. Though such a paper has certainly been received, there is every reason to believe that the contents are totally false, and that the intention is to deceive. According to the statement of a gentleman just arrived from Hamburgh, no such intelligence hud been received there on the 21st. The Moniteur of the 12th, and Dutch Papers to the 17th instant, received by Government, contain little or no information which can be depended on. The Dutch paper contains a letter from General Dumonceau, affirming, that during the battle of the 3d instant, Bonaparte and the Emperor of Ger- many had an interview in a mill! a story perfectly ridiculous. A respectable gentleman writes from Prague, that during the battle of the 3d, Bonaparte did actually propose to the Emperor of Russia an armistice for- six weeks: but that the Emperor replied to Bonaparte—" Pas six heures!'' Not six hours. Marquis Cornwallis has arrived in India, and the Marquis Wellesley is now oil bis return to England.

The question ( Sir Robert said) for the Court to decide, was, whether the discretionary power vested in him, hud not been used for the benefit of the country. He called upon the Court to consider what would be the situation of every Officer in the British licet, if he were not allowed to use his own discretion. He looked to its de- cision to restore to liiin, unpolluted, that character and that honour which bad for nearly half a century been unsullied, and on which, till the present moment, not the least shadow of sus- picion could attach. When Sir Robert had concluded his defence, which occupied more than an hour in the delivery, he proceeded to cull his witnesses. The' witnesses consisted of Captain Cummins, of . the Prince of Wales, the lion. Captain Elphin- stone Fleming, Captain A. 11. Gardner, of the Hero, Captain Boyle, of the Windsor Castle,. & c. and the Chaplain of the Prince of Wales.

TO A FRIEND, Enquiring if I would live my Youth over again. ( From Soutliey's Metrical Tales). TV) I regret the past ? 1J Would la'" again live o'er The morning hours ot life ? Nay, William! nay, not so! In the warm joyance of the summer sun I do not wish again The changeful April day. Nay, William! nay, not so! Sale haven'd from the sea 1 would not tempt: again The uncertain ocean's wrath, Praise be to him who made me what I ant- Other I would not be. Why i; it pleasant then to sit and talk Of days that are Ho more ? When in his own dear home The trav'ller rests at last, And tells how often in his wanderings The thought of those far off Hath made his eyes o'erfiow With no unmanly tears ; Delighted he recalls Thro' what fair scenes his charmed feet have trod. But ever when he tells of perils past And troubles now no more, His eyes most sparkle, and a readier joy Flows rapid to his heart. No, William! no, I would not live again The morning hours of life; .1 would not be again The slave of hope and fear; I would not learn again The wisdom by experience hardly taught. To me the past presents No object for regret ; To me the present gives All cause for full content; The future— it is now the chearful noon, And on the sunny smiling fields I gaze With eyes alive to joy : When the dark night descends I willingly shall close my weary lids Secure to wake again. CHARACTER OF THE RUSSIAN SOLDIER. WHEN the Russian attacks, he must, according to his idea, either conquer or die. A skilful manoeuvre, or a good retreat, are movements for which he has not any taste. He knows how to advance, but not how to retreat. He shuns no danger, even though it were ready to destroy him instantaneously. But what distinguishes the Russian from the troops of any other nation is, his extra- ordinary strength. He is, indisputably, the most hardy of soldiers. No attacks, however long or obstinate, fatigue him. The Russian soldier dresses his schtschy when he can; he has no fixed time for meals or sleep. A Russian is ever watchful when on service, sleeps when he has time, and wherever he may happen to be. He has fewer wants than the native of any other country, and requires less expence in the field. The Russian soldiers were formerly accustomed neither to give nor to accept quarter. This habit they acquired in their wars with the Turks; but their sentiments on this subject were changed by the campaigns in Italy. As the Russian troops arc used to fighting in desert regions, they are ac- companied by a great number of carriages; but these are so light, and there are so many mechanics among the soldiers, that any repairs which they may want are performed in a moment, without in the least delaying the march of the army. FRENCH OUTRAGES AT VIENNA. BY the following letter from Vienna, our readers may form some idea of the atrocities committed by the armed ruffians of Bonaparte, on their taking possession of that capital; the sufferings and indignities to which the inhabitants have been rcil- uced ;• and of the reliance to be placed on the Proclamations of the Usurper :— " VIENNA, Nov. 24. " After the treachery of Murat had prevented the removal of many valuables, and of the military stores already packed up, and ready to be sent to- wards Moravia, the booty of the French on the day of their entry here was immense; and it was there- fore thought, that the assurance of Bonaparte in a proclamation, of respect being shewn to persons and properly, was sincere, and not another artifice to obtain " plunder. We had, however, soon reason to repent of our credulity. No sooner had the enemy occupied our watch- houses and gates, than all per- sons found in the streets were civilly stripped of their' money, watches, jewels, and trinkets, shoe and knee- lmckles, and even of their hats, bonnets, handkerchiefs, & c. & c.; so much so, that nobody dared to go out, before another proclamation or- dered the soldiers, under pain of death, not to j pillage in the streets. Tins proclamation was accompanied with a requisition in money and in clothing to the amount of forty- two millions of florins, not including all the plate of palaces, pri- vate houses, convents, and churches, which was seized en masse, in the night after the entry of the French. In the same night also, most cellars wero broken open, and wines and victuals stolen ? and i not a house escaped the marauders, who took every thing portable on which they could lay their hands. In the vicinity of this capital, in a circle of five leagues, ninehundred houses were broken open and plundered; and the officers, as well as the men, forced us here to buy for ready money their stolen goods. Many individuals, supposed to be rich, were laid under a private contribution, calculated to amount to half their fortunes ; and those who could or would not pay, were imprisoned as hostages, but threatened every instant with death, as refractory, or rebels, to the commands of the Emperor of the French. " Within the first forty- eight hours that we were cursed with French fraternity, upwards of six hundred women and girls tverc violated, many of the latter under ten vears of age; and when we complained, we were faughed at, as Prince Murat considered these occurrences merely as bagatelles, though the corpses of several murdered females, laying in the streets, proved that the ravishers had also been plunderers and assassins, and that virtue and innocence had not submitted to outrages with- out resistance. So many and infamous provoca- tions, caused some retaliation. Many of the French officers and soldiers were killed when in the streets after dark, and others were wounded or disappeared, without it being known what be- came of them. A general domiciliary visit WAS then ordered, under pretext of searching for arms, but in fact to seize or extort fresh plunder. " Nearly desperate by insults and sufferings; the people collected in numbers; and* though only armed with bludgeons and knives, attacked ime of the French watch- houses in the old town, and carried it; they were, however, soon attacked in their turn and most of them cut to pieces. For l'ear that this affair might incite to a general in- surrection, the insurgents wore styled emissaries of Russia and England ; and a third proclamation promised all peaceable, inhabitants' full protection for their persons and property; and that all violence should meet with a summary punishment. On the next morning, indeed, a soldier who had stolen a silver spoon was shot, b( it at the same time the whole contents of the shop of a gold- smith were carried away by one of Mural's Aid- de- Cainps, for the use of the armies. A tariff of safety was then established, and a card, signed by Murat, for ivhich a louis d'or has been paid, is an evidence that the bearer has acquitted the quota j of his contributions, and is under the protection of the French. I do not, and I cannot, enter into the shocking particulars of all the outrages perpetrated in our abbeys and convents; but should the French continue here a month longer, famine will be added to our other wretchedness, as they have already ' confiscated all our corn ma- gazines, and do not allow us more than a quarter of a pound of bread for each individual. This is only a small part of what yve have experienced during the tirst week of French fraternity. " Some French grenadiers forced their way in the night of the 20th into the house of a rich banker at Vienna, and alter violating, before his eyes, his wife and two daughters, pillaged the apartmeirts of every thing valuable, which they carried awav, together with all the ready money and plate found in tbe counting- house. " On the 18th an inventory was taken of all the furniture of the Imperial palaces, and of the houses of all the nobility who had left Vienna. Brokers were ordered to value every thing, and a sale was advertised for the 22d. A steward of Prince Esterhazi offered a fair price to preserve the palaces of his Sovereign, and of his master, from being stripped: it was accepted; but no sooner had the money been pocketed, than the brokers who had valued the furniture were sent for, and confined until they had procured the amount of the valuation, for w hich the furniture was to be their pledge. " Twenty thousand yards of cloths were, on the 18th instant, among other things, put into requisition at Vienna. Oil the 19th, it was sold by public auction; but on the 20th, the purchasers were ordered, under pain of military execution, to deliver it for the French magazines. They were repaid with no other money than the receipts of the French Commissaries. " Six of Talleyrand's clerks are busy in searching the archives of Austria, and twenty of Fouclie's clerks and spies are the directors of the police at Vienna, divided into so many districts. They order domiciliary visits, and issue mandates of arrest, just as in France and at Paris. On the 23d ult. the number of suspected persons and state pri- soners amounted already to 710. If they do not pay a ransom required, they will be tried by a pretended military tribunal, also organized in the French manner." 3 3 3 3 8 20 60 120 GRAND LOTTERY. Begins Drawing February 3d, 1806.

Masters of Ships may, also, in one Night, witness the Effects of this Powder, which allures theA'ermin to the Spot, where they will eat till they drop, yet no Cat will touch it. The Success with which it has been used in the Sugar Plantations, in Sugar- Houses, and Stores, deserves the Regard of Merchants and Planters. From the Calculation laid before the House of Com- mons by Sir James Wright, Bart, it appears, that " tne Damage done by these wide- wasting Devourers of Corn, amounts to no less than 16,850,000 Buihcls an- il ually, tsjhico is far mor e than sufficient for Seed lo sow the ensuing Year's Crop /" The Inventor being a Person of Character and Property, it is scarcely necessary to add, that his Motive in preparing it is solely for the public Good ; but beware of Counterfeits, which its great Sale has encouraged.

External Appearance necessary in life. IO R D CHESTERFIELD particularly advises Cleanliness, not only as necessary to Health, but the Success of our Fortunes in Life; and with so slothful a Complaint as any Disease that has the leitst Analogy to the Scrofula, Indolence will natu- rally prevent either Sexes from profiting by this ex- cellent Observation.— Eruptions in the Face :— The inconsistent Doctrine of those who recommend external Applications for internal Complaints, is obviated in the following simple Question:— Will the Fur which adheres to the Inside of a Kettle, or Boiler, be re- moved by washing the Outside ? The same Compa- rison may be made respecting the Human Frame: Can an internal Complaint be removed by an external Application ? These Questions are left to be an- swered by every Reader, which will shew the Ridi- culousness of inculcating this Doctrine, while the Infallibility of Dr. B RODUM'S BOTANICAL SYRUP is evinced in the extraordinary Cures that daily ap- pear in the Papers, particularly in Cases of the above Nature.— The Motive for publishing this Advertise- ment, is, to secure the Health of the Public from the Danger that attends external Application, which, to our Knowledge, has proved fatal to many who have placed in it an improper Confidence. Bennet- Stuet, Black friars- Road, London, SIR, September 1, 1802. 1 was afflicted, for many Years, with a violent Scorbutic Disorder, which caused large Sores and Blotches on my Legs, Thighs, and Anns, in as much that I could not walk without excruciating Pain. In this Situation I applied to many of the Faculty, without their being able to ellect a Cure. I was prevailed on by a Friend of mine to apply to you, and alter having taken the Medicines, I soon found myself free from the Sores, and am now in perfect Health.

LS, to communicate to you the following Cure, which has recently been performed by them:— An Acquaintance of mine, who, by the breaking out of an old Venereal Complaint ( attended by a Complication of Disorders arising therefrom), was reduced almost to a Skeleton, and although he had the best Medical Advice which could be obtained, and tried a Variety of Patent Me- dicines, Nothing could be procured which seemed to suit his Case, or to do him any Service: He remained in a most reduced and pitiable Situation for two Years, unable to follow his Profession, and scarcely able to walk or even to stand on his Legs; in Fact, no one who knew him ever supposed it possible for him to recover. He was advised at last to try your LEAKE'S PILLS ; he did so, adhering strictly to the Directions given with them; he had not taken more than two Boxes before lie found an Alteration for the better; this encouraged him to proceed, and bv taking a tew Boxes more he found his Appetite and Strength gra- dually return, and is now as healthy and stout as any Man 1 know. You are welcome, Sir, to reier any Person to me for a Confirmation of the above Account if it should be doubted. 1 am, Sir, your obedient humble Servant, THOS. PURDAY.
