( Paper and Print • Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. SATURDAY'S Gazette contains an account of the boats of the Pique . frigate having captured, jn the Mona Passage, a line Spanish brig, of 12 guns, destroyed one small French privateer, and. taken another. The Orpheus frigate has taken a Spanish schooner: and the boats of the Success accomplished the capture of the Vengeur French privateer, after losing Mr. Duke, First Lieutenant of the Success. A letter from Capt. Riehan, of the armed ship Norfolk, mentions his having taken L'Adolphe French privateer, of 14 guns, which had captured the Letth picket on the 23d ult. The Master! live of the crew, and three passengers, were on board the privateer. LOND O N, February 10. The following are extracts from the official re- ports of General Henningsen, as transmitted from the Cabinet of St. Petersburgh, to the Russian Minister in London, and by h^ Excellency com- municated to our Government; dated St. Peters- burgh, Jan. 7th :— " . On the 4 th and 5th inst. Messengers arrived here from the army, announcing to his Imperial Majesty, that since the 22d of December, almost daily skirmishes took place between the advanced corps, in which the enemy } vel invariably repulsed. The moment General Benningsen had taken a position near I'ultusk, be was attacked by the division of the enemy under General Suchet: the action lasted three hours, but the enemy were at length repulsed with considerable loss. " On the 26th, the greater part uf the division under Prince Dolgorucky had joined General Ben- niugsen, and about 11 o'clock the enemy, in great force, made an attack under the immediate direc- tion of Bonaparte, led by Marshals Davoust and Lasncs, and a detached corps under General Suchet. The battle was most sanguinary, and lasted till dark. At the commencement of it, General Dai oust with a corps of 15,000 men, fell upon our left wing, in order to possess himself of l'ultusk in our rear. General Baggavoust, who commanded there with 4000 men, was obliged to give way to the superior numbers of the, enemy; but General Count Osterman, being immediately detached by General Benningsen to his support, the progress of the enemy was arrested. " 1 he attack upon the right wing was impetuous, and was conducted by Bonaparte himself. Lasnes's numerous corpspf infantry were employed in this service, and advanced through a thick underwood upon our advanced guard, which was stationed under General Barklay de Toliy, to cover our wing. Our small corps necessarily gave way, and afforded opportunity for a masked battery to act. A few discharges of grape shot killed vast numbers of the enemy, and effectually stopped his career. Ge- neral de Tolly, profiting by his confusion, again advanced, but was again obliged to retire, " Bonaparte now attempted to out- tlank this battery, when General Benningsen ordered the charge of the front to the whole of the right wing, and sent three battalions up two different times to support General de Tolly. " At this period of the battle, General Ben- ningsen determined to attack the enemy in his turn, and for this purpose he ordered General Count Osterman to advance with the rest of his infantry towards the right wine, and supported him with a strong train of artillery, and twenty squadrons of cavalry, at the same time ordering the rest of his cavalry to form in front of his centre, in order to keep that of the enemy in its position. The French defended themselves with desperation, but were obliged to yield to the valour of his Imperial Majesty's troops; they were entirely defeated, and beaten from the scene of action. " The prisoners we have taken, declare that the enemy lost above 0000 men in killed alone.— Our loss could not be immediately ascertained, and the Messenger was dispatched the moment the affair was over; it does not, however, exceed 2000 men. " General Benningsen proposed giving a de- tailed account of this battle as soon as possible; but adds, that he cannot sufficiently praise the courage and intrepidity of the troops of his Impe- rial Majesty. Among other things lie mentions, that Major- General Kogin, with the Imperial Body Regiment of Cuirassiers, and two regiments of Carjopal Dragoons, charged a detachment of the enemy, consisting of 3000 infantry, which was on the point of cutting off Major General Baggavoust; and, notwithstanding the galling fire of the enemy's artillery, broke through them, and cut them to pieces to a man. " Thus Bonaparte's attempt at the destrustion of the corps under General Benningsen, was de- feated, and a complete victory gained over him." In addition to the above, the following intelli- gence was circulated in the Government Offices on Saturday evening, as the substance of the accounts received from Poland :—• « Colonel Kruser arrived at Koningsberg on the 3d of January with dispatches from General Kalkreuth, and a Russian Messenger followed the day after with dispatches from General Kamenskoy. Excepting a trifling affair on the 28th of December, in which a detachment of 1' renoh cavalry made an unsuccessful attempt to cut off a corps of Cossacks, which was posted in the advance of Rozaw, it does not appear that any engagement has taken place subsequent to the 26th. " The victory of the Russians, on the 26th, was decisive; its consequences would probably have been more important, had not General Benningsen been restrained in his pursuit of the enemy, bv intelligence, that the divisions of Ney and Au- gec, eau had formed a junction near Grodzier, and were advancing in his rear— the approach of night likewise contributed to the escape of the enemy. " Upwards of seventy pieces of cannon, taken from the enemy on the 26th, bad on the 30th ar- rived at Ostrolenska: several others were buried in the roads. The peasantry cheerfully assisted in their conveyance. " Fresh troops are daily joining the Russian army, which, by the middle of February, will comprize three hundred thousand men, between the. Neimen and the Vistula. " General Tolstoy commands a corps of 16,000 men at Sieliy; General Bagonaut is posted at the little village at Martinky, on the Omulcio, across which river he has established a bridge; General Tolly commands the advance of the left wing of the army atSietun; the rear, with General Oster- man, has fallen back upon the strong position of Kolno; and the other corps of the army, under the orders of Prince Dolgorousky, Gen. Somdoff, & c. oceupy Wizna, Bailstock; Mazow, & c. Gen Buxhmden's division occupies Novigrod. Clinki, Lornzaj & c. " Tic whole of the army is thus concentrated within he circuit of a few miles, notwithstanding the diffculty to provide provisions and forage; and it is hence obvious, that General Kamenskoy is de- termined to resume offensive operations the moment he is in a condition to do so. The Russian army is impatient to meet the enemy— nothing can sur- pass their enthusiasm and confidence. General Sitoff, previous to the affair at Framguikaw, read, at the head of his detachment, one of the French bulletins, containing scurrilous reflections on the Russian army, on which the soldiers, in tumultuous indignation, exclaimed, ' Lead us on, and we will punish our calumniators.' " A strong Prussian corps has taken possession of the defdes of Nikolaiken. " The French division, under Ney, has fallen back behind the Dribentz; and a corps of about 300 men, which had pushed beyond Osterode, was surrounded by a Prussian regiment at Deutsch Eylau, and cut to pieces." The Comet lately discovered at Marseilles will be visible in our horizon about the latter end of this month. It may be very distinctly observed and followed by a common telescope. It is said very much to have influenced the season, and pro- duced that very mild winter which has been so general throughout Europe. As a proof of the utility of the Friendly Societies, we have to record the following instance that has occurred in a village in Renfrewshire. One of those societies, established about 19 years ago, has paid to one of its members, lately deceased, during a long illness of IT years, the sum of „£. 186 10s. 6d. — Such a striking example of the great good done by the establishment of those benevolent insti- tutions, ought strongly to recommend the more frequent adoption of them among the working class of mankind; and it would add much to their stability and usefulness were the humane and bene- volent to enrol themselves as honorary members. Yesterday se'nnight, at night, as Mrs. Simison, the wife of an attorney, in Poland- street, Oxford road, was sitting alone, in the absence of Mr. Siniison, in lier kitchen, after the rest of the family had retired to hed, her clothes accidentally caught fire. A gentleman who lodged in the house, frightened at the smell of the burning clothes, gave - the alarm, but too late to save the lady's life; she expired at five o'clock the next morning, in great agony. She was a handsome woman, about 40, and has left a son and four daughters. Lately died at Edmonton, aged 38, the wife of Mr. Bigg, attorney, of Hatton- strect. The fate of this lady is singularly calamitous:— A few days before, as she was assisting in trussing a wild duck, in consequence of her cook having abruptly left her, the point of the skewer ran into the ball of her thumb, conveying with it some of the putri- fied matter of the bird, which brought on a mor- tification that terminated in her death.— She has left eight children. At the Court of Justiciary, at Paisley, on the 2d inst. M. Smith was tried for the murder of a female infant, found guilty, and ordered for execution on the lltli of March. An apothecary's apprentice, named Taylor, was included in the indictment, but acquitted. The child was about three months old. Smith received it in the streets of Paisley, from a woman named Kelly, carried it to a garden, and left it lying on the ground, while he went for Taylor, who accompanied him to the place where the child lay still alive. Here they killed the infant, by squeezing its neck and putting its head under water! MURDER OP MR. STEET.. Monday John Holloway and Owe ® Haggerty were publicly examined at the Police- Office, in Worship- street, for the fust time, though this was the third examination, on the charge of murdering Mr. Steel, on the 6th of November, 1802. There'- was a great body of evidence adduced, none of which tended materially to criminate the prisoners, except that of Benjamin Ilanfield, who was particeps criminis, and who, under the promise of pardon, had turned King's evidence. He stated, that the prisoner Holloway, about the month of October, 1802, eame to lnm, ond asked him if he had an inclination to earn a little money, in a manner that would cost him very little trouble, lie told him, he knew of a man who constantly passed Hounslow Heath every evening, with a considerable quantity of money about him; and if he ( Hanfield) would come with him and his com- panion Haggerty, he had no doubt of making it worth bis while. Hanfield having no objection, he appointed a meeting at the Black- IIorse public- house, a favourite rendezvous for this sort of gentry, in Dyott- street, St. Giles's, where they settled matters together for the accomplishment of their object. They accordingly agreed to carry their plan into effect on the Saturday evening fol- lowing, when Mr. Steel should be returning home from his house at Feltham to l._ ndon. They set out oil Saturday morning early, and proceeded to Hounslow, where they waited in ambush until the time Mr. S. usually departed for town. It was about eight o'clock, the moon shone very brightly, when Ilolloway cried out, " Here's the man," and desired Hanfield to demand Mr. S.' s money; witness accordingly went up to Mr. Steel, and de- manded his money, which he gave, and begged the prisoners would not treat him ill, but suffer him to depart. The money he gave not satisfying the prisoners, Haggerty swore with a tremendous oath, that if lie did not immediately deliver up his pocket- book, he should suffer the consequences of refusal, and, at the same moment, witness saw Mr. Steel knocked down by a blow from behind, which be believes came from Ilolloway. The sound of carriage wheels at that time so much alarmed witness, that be ran away towards London, and left the prisoners to complete their bloody in tentions. He heard repeated cries of " murder!" and several dismal groans, as he fled from his companions. About an hour after, the prisoners overteok him on bis way to Loudon, and upbraided him with being " a wliite- livered coward," and that he must not expect to participate in the spoils, as he did not share in the danger. The prisoner Holloway said " he had done his business." They then parted for the night; and on the morrow they met again in Dyott- street, when witness observed that Holloway had a strange hat and boots on. Upon examining the hat, he perceived the name of Steel in the lining; upon which he advised Holloway to make away with it, as it might lead to a dis- covery, and they would be all taken up. Holloway accordingly filled the hat with stones, and threw it into the Thames, from Westminster bridge. This was the material part of Hanfield's evidence. Several other witnesses were examined, whose testimony did not throw any additional light on the guilt of tlije prisoners; who, in their defence, still positively persisted in denying all knowledge of the transaction, and fervently wished that punishment might fall on the guilty. They adduced no evidence. They were committed to Newgate, to take their trials at the n « s.< t Old- Bailey Sessions.

Wednesday and Thursday's Posts. LONDON, February 12. PARIS Papers to. . the 3d, and Dutch to the 7th instant, have been received, which bring four additional bulletins from the French army, and intelligence down to the 19th of January. We are sorry that as far as dependence may. be placed upon French accounts, they give us no reason to conclude that any advantages have been gained by the Russian army., They are entirely silent in regard to any fighting since the 26. th of De- cember, and any conclusions to that effect seem now destitute of foundation. In the 51st bulletin the French claim the victory over General. Ben- jiingsen in that affair of the 26th, on which the Russians represent themselves as victorious.— This bulletin contains the following remarkable jpassage " He ( General Benningsen) pretended to have • gained a victory, and nevertheless he was in full retreat at ten at night; and this retreat was so hasty, that he abandoned his wounded. Let him shew us a single piece of cannon, a single French • standard, a single prisoner, but 12 or 15 men, who might have been taken here and there on the rear of the army; while we can shew him 6000 • prisoners, two standards, which he lost near Pul- tusk, and 3000 wounded, whom he abandoned in his flight!" We may probably conclude from these con- tradictory accounts, that the advantage of neither party was very considerable, and that the French, if not defeated, at least sustained an effectual check. We are sorry, however, to find that the French re- assert their having conquered General Buxhovden, at Golymin, on the same day, and state on that occasion no trivial loss which they mv thev have • inflicted on tlie Russian army, having " taken from them 100 pieces of ordnancc, 1600 baggage- waggons, and the important position of Sieroch, Pultuak, and Ostralenska. In conse- quence of these transactions, they inform us that rite King and Queen of Prussia, deeming their situation at Konigstierg no longer secure, set off in great haste forMernci; and that the Russian army had continued their retreat to Grodno. They add, what we trust is at least a gross ex- aggeration, that the Russian army is extremely discontented, and has lost a great number of men bv a severe and prevailing sickness. . Every appearance is exhibited of a resolution to push the advantages possessed over the Prus- sians, in the absence of their allies. Prince Jerome, having reduced Breslau, is to proceed against Victor lias Dahtzic aud Colberg; and the French cavalry is said tc be in the neighbourhood of Konigsberg. The state of the Prussian force is given as follows: With the King, 1500 troops; with I. estocq, in- cluding the garrison at Konigsberg, 5000 men; with hamburger, to garrison Dantzic, 6000 men; under Gazadon, at Colberg, 1800 men; under Courhiere, at Graudenfz, S000: and it is added, that the French troops are in motion to surround and besiege these fortresses. We trust they will exhibit such a brave resistance as will cost the invaders dear; and enable them to make but little progress, till the season for commencing the Rus- sian operations returns. hi an article dated from Lintz, a hint is thrown out in the Monileur as to the probability of a negociation for a separate peace on the part of the King of Prussia, Has Bonaparte then de- pavted from bis resolution of keeping possession of Prussia till he bring England to his own terms? It is not improbable that he has; and that a peace not only with Prussia, but with Russia, is an object w hich he hopes to accomplish at no very distant period. The Moniteur states, that the Porte has actually . in- hired war against Russia ; but this seems so improbable, in the disordered state of that Em- pire. and with an English fleet in front of the Seraglio, that we are not disposed to believe it, till we receive better authority. The people, both Turks and Greeks, are represented as strongly animated against the Russians, which is evidently untrue. J The following letter has been sent from Bona- j parte to the Bishops of the Empire: — " Mounsier LJEveque, of nfjir, liui. ien- ius; .:,',•:. toi rush vfhti'e < 1 fcw • » » <> . Ott Friday tKu TWu- st < ji Lotirt iVttit ttito a'Chffi- the very heart of the French urultery. It was inittce on- the Bill for the Abolition of the Slave the artillery which annoyed the Russians so dread- | Trade; some conversation took place as to the fully at Austerlitz; but we trust our brave irre- j periods when the abolition should take place: and gulars, the Cossacks and Hashkers,: will prove an ! on Monday, when the report of the Committee overmatch for it; in which case Kamenskoy has j was brought up, Lord Grenville proposed that the declared lie will answer for the success of the war, since our infantry is decidedly superior. Bonaparte's spies appear to have been as abolition of the trade should commence generally from the 1st of May next. His intention was, that no vessel should be allowed to clear out from this unsuccessful as his soldiers. When Kamenskoy j country for a voyage to the coast of Africa, and was at Grodno, one of these, pretending to be a j from thence to the West- Indies, after the above Prussian General, brought a letter, signed appa- j period. His Lordship, however, proposed a clause, rently by his Prussian Majesty, and requesting a confidential communication of the intended route of the Russian forces. The sagacious veteran instantly penetrated the fraud. Two Cossacks stripped the wretch, and, after administering some salutary correction, Kamenskoy ordered him to return to Bonaparte, and to shew him on his back the route of the Russian army. " The account I have given you has been per sonally confirmed by Vassilzikoff, the Courier, who was an eye- witness of the action; and I send it you bv a Messenger who is on the point of de- parture for Englund." We find that the Russians are at length con- vinced that the best mode of attacking the French is by the bayonet. To this instrument, and the valour with which it was directed, were we in- debted. for our glorious triumph over the French troops in Egypt and Maida, and by the same means there is' great reason to believe that they will be defeated by any other troops that resolutely attack them. By private lette rs from the Continent, received by the same vessel as the late French bulletins, we learn, that a report is'generally circulated, and as generally believed, that the mediation of Austria had been employed, to procure a peace, upon some more favourable t erms, for the King of Prussia. It is added, that Austria has, in this negociation, assumed a tone ( if vigour which has long been, unknown in her Councils. Baron Vincent, it is reported, was authorized to state difinitively, that the Emperor Frrmcis saw the present state of his Polish subjects with just apprehension; and that nothing would so effectually tranquillize the recipro- cal fears of bis Majesty and his faithful subjects, as some proof of the Emperor Napoleon's moderation, in acceding to the offered negociation of his Prussian Majesty, it is said that Bonaparte has thus been reluctantly compelled to enter upon the discussion of an armistice, on a more moderate basis than he would otherwise have granted. The masters of two neutral vessels detained and ; sent into Plymouth by the Snap- Dragon privateer, all the remaining places in Silesia. General j from a port in France, state, that the troops from has actually marched to the attack of j the sea coast are ordered to march into the interior ; of France, to replace those troops that are marched ', from thence to join Bonaparte in Poland. A vessel which left Flushing a few days since, has also brought accounts that the whole of the re- gular forces have been marched from Holland ; they add, that these troops have been marched into the Hessian territory, in consequence of the alarming progress of the insurrection, which has broken out in that Electorate, as also OH account of the inefficiency of the levy of French conscripts. Bonaparte, it is said, has been afflicted with the tooth- ache, ever since the battle of Pul- tusk. A letter from Leyden says, " the number of persons lost by the late explosion has not yet been ascertained, nor can it be done with any precision till all the ruins have been removed, which is a work of time and immense labour. Dead bodies, most shockingly mangled, are dug up from time to time; but the greatest part so disfigured that they cannot be recognised. Leyden, once so flourishing, is now a desart." The Madrid Ga/. ette of October, 1808, gives an account of the return of Dr. Francis Xavier Balms, surgeon extraordinary to the King of Spain, from a voyage round the world; taken for the sole purpose of conveying the benefits of vaccina- tion to all the transmarine possessions of the Crown of Spain, and other countries in their vicinity. Saturday accounts were received respecting the expedition which sailed from Falmouth on the 10th of October, for the river Plata.

By the above accounts, our readers will perceive that the French still claim the victory in the battle on the 26th of December. On the other hand, the official statements in our first page, and the j following extract of a private letter from a mer- chant at Continue to Russians:— i " St. Petersburg!!, Jan. 6. j " The scarcity of provisions in the French j army, and the hope of ending the campaign by a decisive blow, concurred to induce Bonaparte to pass the Vistula, at the head of 60,000 men. On the y.'. d of 1 tecember lie advanced to the outposts of General Benningsen's army, where General Osterraan commanded. Although Benningsen's force was formidable < 5s>, 000),' he preferred at first the prudent alternative of retreating during the 23d, 24th, and 25th ult. On each of these days skirmishes took place; but on the 26th the two tcroion made a stand in sight of each other, at a . viiisure called Sclim, which lay between them. This^ villageBonaparte, who commanded in person, fet on fire, to cover his attack on the Russians, . v , om he thus thought to envelope in smoke. This - ii tifice, however, was soon turned against himself, • or BeTining'en discovering his intention, instantly formed his reserve into a hollow square, which advanced unperceived, under the smoke of the v iage. This gallant corps marched with fixed buyonets; the Russian line opened their files to let. them pass through, and they never stopped until r readied the centre of the French. Here an .'. stir, ate conflict took place; but the Russians succeeded not, only in routing the centre of the t. cinv, but also turning both their wings. The 1. it. wing of the French being shaken by the Rus- • :: in infantry, was entirely borne down and dis- persed by General Chaplitz, at the head of the 1 J. 1.-. dry, who killed 2000 men. Their right wing TII- ired* a similar fate from General Kozcn, at the bead of his yagers. The^ rout of the French was . oruplete. Davoust, Lasnes, Bonaparte himself, • id fled in confusion to Pultusk, which is eleven i: iiie? from the scene of action, and had been Ben- • oin.- seri's head- quarters until the 23d ult. • 1 he Cossacks particularly signalized them- - in this glorious affair. Their general orders calculated to afford relief to such vessels as were prevented by peculiar circumstances from com- pleting their voyage prior to the 1st of January next. A clause to this effect having been adopted, the Bill was ordered to be engrossed; and on Tuesday, it was brought up again, and after a short debate upon it, read a third time and passed. It was then sent down to the Commons for their concurrence. In the House of Commons on Tuesday, Mr. Biddulph submitted to the House a motion for the appointment of a Committee to enquire into what superfluous offices, unnecessary fees, and sinecure places, might be abolished; for the purpose of re- lieving the people, to some extent, from the pres- sure of the present taxes. The Hon. Gentleman said, there were many offices, particularly in the Exchequer, to which enormous salaries w ere an- nexed ; these places were mere sinecures, the per- sons that held them doina nothing, as the duty was performed by deputies. After enlarging upon these topics, Mr. Biddulph concluded by moving for a Committee of Enquiry.— In reply, Lord II. Petty said there existed a perfect coincidence on this subject in the minds of his Majesty's Ministers, with the ideas thrown out by the lion. Gentleman. His Lordship trusted, however, that no man could deny the policy and expediency of conferring re- wards on such individuals as dedicated all their time and talents to the service of their country, in the details of Government; aud he hoped" the object of the Hon. Gentleman did not go so far as to deprive such persons of the fair receipts of the salaries attached to the offices they filled; but he admitted that such stipends ought to be confined, and not suffered to run to excess. The Noble Lord said, that reforms and abolitions of offices had taken place in the Customs and Excise, where offices held by deputy had been annihilated; also in the Courts of Law, particularly the Admiralty Court.—- His Lordship proposed, as an amendment, | that the enquiry should extend to offices in Ire- j land ; and after a short conversation, the motion, as amended, was agreed to; and a Committee, consisting of 22 Members, appointed, to examine and controul the several branches, of the public expenditure ; who are authorised to scud for per- sons, papers and- records; to report observations and opinions, & c. & c. The Slave Trade Abolition Bill was read a first time, and ordered for the second reading on Friday the 20th hist. HUNTINGDONSHIRE. GENERAL MEETING or LIEUTENANCY.
