Private accounts ( late, that two regiments have been embarked from Sicily, to reinforce General Frazer at Alex- andria. The Mediterranean Fleet has also ar- rived, in number 17 fail, under convoy of his Majesty's ship Amphion. A Jamaica Mail has brought letters and Papers from that Island to the 17th ult. They state that Admiral Cochrane's squadron is blockading three sail of the line that escaped from Brest, in Fori Royal Harbour, Martinique.— The French 7- 1, which took refuge in the Chesapeak. from Sir John Borlase Warren's squadron, was, according to the last accounts, preparing to put to sea; but two English line of battle ships were watching her. The fleet from Jamaica, consisting of about 150 sail, under convoy of La Pique frigate,, were dispersed shortly alter passing the Gulph. The Commerce was taken 0n the 291b of June, and retaksn on the of July, by the Princess Char~ lotte frigate. Several of the fleet were in sight when the lugger, a Spanish letter of marque, bound to the Carraccas, took the Commerce. An American Paper dates, that the Phaeton frigate of 36 guns, Capt. Cockburn, had cap- tured, in the Indian Seas, a Spanish ship from Manilla, with 1,400,000 dollars on board, and carried her into Mocha. A Morning Paper says, " A formal notice of the rejection of the Treaty between England and America is said to have been received by Govern- ment. The chief objection is understood to be made on the right of searching American vessels. Private information has, however, led us to suppose, that this right might have been waved on the part of the British Government, if the Americans would have suffered English agents to reside in their ports, to see to the bona fide un- loading of the Colonial produce of the West In- dia Islands prior to its being shipped for Europe Commodore Owen, who commands Our cruis- ers stationed off the French coast, had on Monday a long conference at the Admiralty ; it is sup- - posed, on the subject of some information lately obtained on that station, and by which it is the intention of Government to direct some opera- tions they have in view. Sir Charles Cotton, or Sir Erasmus Gower, according to report, is to succeed Lord Gardner in the command of the Channel Fleet. On Tuesday, tbe Archbishop of Canterbury paid his respects to the Duchess of Brunswick and the Princess of Wales. His Grace remained with their Royal Highnesses near an hour. We understand that the two vacant Orders of the Garter are to be given to the Marquis of Hertford and the Earl of Lonsdale ; and that a Chapter of the Order is to be held at Windsor, on Saturday', for investing them with the rib- bands, Tuesday the Lord Mayor ordered the price of bread to remain the same as last week. City Privileges on the River Thames,— On Sa- turday came on for trial before Lord Ellenbo- rough and a Special Jury at Westminster, an in- dictment preferred by the City of London, against Thomas alias Copper Holmes, a wa- terman, for a nuisance upon the River Thames, near Hungerford, by placing and mooring a large barge in the River, with a dwel- ling house erected thereon for himself and family. When the evidence of the fact was given- by the Deputy Water Bailiff and others, his Lordship expressed his disapprobation of the conduct of the defendant; and observed. that if he had been permitted to remain there lon- ger, he might probably have erected a mansion- house upon the bed and soil of the River, and claimed it as his freehold. His Lordship was of opinion, that any impediment or obstruction to the navigation of ihe River Thames was a nui- sance, and that the party committing the same might alway be indicted. The Jury without the least hesitation pronounced the Defendant — Guilty. On Sunday morning, as one of Lady South- ampton's gardeners was bathing in a pond at Highgate, near Fitzroy Farm, although a goods swimmer, he sunk in deep water., and was drown- ed, supposed from having been seized with the cramp. His companions and others were busied in dragging for the body till late on Sunday even- ing, but without effect. It is to be questioned whether any of Bona- parte's late Bulletins travelled so fast from Po- land to Paris, as what the news will do through out England, that in the present great contest lot Lottery Prizes, not one of the numerous Capitals turned up on Tuesday last, though 2000 num- bers were then drawn. It may be easily con- ceived, therefore, what commissions for Tickets and Shares will flow in from all parts of the country, before the second drawing on Tuesday next. Tuesday N. Millshaw, porter to an ironmon- ger in Theobald's- road, was fully committed from Hatton garden Office, for pilfering money at va- rious times from the shop. 226 SUNDAY REPORTER. JULY 19. Paris, Hamburg, and Altona Papers to the - 8th, and Dutch to the 12th inst, have come to hand ; and their contents will be found of im- portance. [ See our Third Page.] and 84th Bulletins of the French Army, which mention the ratification of. the Armistice, and the inter- " View between Prince Labanoff and Bonaparte. . The signature of a PRELIMINARY TREATY OP PEACE BETWEEN RUSSIA AND FRANCE IS announced in positive terms in the German Ga- zettes, but the date is not mentioned. On the 24th ult. a conference took place on a raft in the Niemen, between Bonaparte and the Emperor Alexander; when mutual compliments look place, and the two Chiefs embraced each other. They afterwards rode through some of the streets of Tilsit, which were lined with the French guards, and dined together at the resi dence of Napoleon. How far the feelings ol'the parties correspond with their exterior appear- ances 0n the occasion, we leave our Readers to judge. All the external ceremonies that attend- ed the meeting of the two Emperors are minutely described in a letter from Tilsit. It is not so easy to become acquainted with the language they held on this occassion ; as the attendants of Bo- naparte and the Russian Sovereign were not ad- mitted till after their Masters had conversed to- gether for about two hours. The manner in which the Imperial Interview was conducted is worthy of notice. The Em- perors are stated to have met upon a raft in the middle of a river ! This is an imitation of an interview between the. Emperor Charles the Fifth and Francis the Second, who had an inter- view 011 the Rhine with the same form, and at- tended by the same circumstances. Each of the Monarchs got into a boat with twelve Knights, and directed their course for an Island in the middle of the river. On each bank, immediately opposite the Island, was drawn up an equal force ot the French aud German troops.— The inter- view of the Emperors Alexander and Napoleon, was conducted pretty much in the same manner. According to the letters from Tilsit, there ap- pears a more than reasonable friendship between these two recent enemies. The town is stated to he equally divided between the two Sovereigns Configuring the narrowness of the quarters, it would not be very surprising if these two Kings, of Brentford should chance to justle, and again fall into some unlucky quarrel ! There is an old Arabian Proverb—" Don't ride 0n the same saddle with a reconciled enemy." Unless upon the supposition that Bonaparte has acquired some influence over the Emperor Alex- ander, such a measure is very extraordinary.— After the defeat of his army, it is rather singular that the Emperor of Russia should. have such feel- ings towards the conqueror, as to place, himself on such a footing of intimacy and personal con- fidence. The interviews and entertainments - which must take place in this situation will give Bonaparte an opportunity of employing every artifice and intrigue to gain the Court of Russia to his views. There is a report in the Berlin Paper, that all Englishmen are to be ordered to quit Russia. We know not this ; but we may expect that Bonaparte will use every endeavour to dissolve the connection between this country and Russia. The following Letter mentions the accession of Prussia to the Preliminaries: — " ROTTERDAM, July 11,-— Night.— WE have but time to inform you, that an express from the French head- quarters has brought. intelligence, that on the 25th of June, the PREliMINARIES OF PEACE were signed BETWEEN FRANCE, RUSSIA, and PRUSSIA— The particulars are not yet known.'' We see no reason for doubting the accuracy of this article.— The Moniteur of the 6th inst. gives a copy of the 84th Bulletin, which contains some details of the actions - of the 11th and 12th ult. previous to the battle of the 14th at Friedland. The issue of that battle, however, and its results, have stript these narratives of every thing like interest. This Bulletin, which is. dated on the 24th, mentions the expected arrival, of Gen. Kal- kreuth, and furnishes ground to suppose that all matters between Prussia and France were adjusted before the 29th The principal conditions are conjectured to be. That Poland shall be- possessed as before by Prus- sia and Russia;— That all the Prussian territories are to be restored, except Sileslia and Westphalia That the fortresses of Magdebourg, Westphalia and Hanover, shall be garrisoned by the French until peace between Great Britain and France that take place;— and that all the ports and places on this side of the Elbe ; ( half henceforward be under the dominion and controul of France. It is con- jectured that Bremen, Emden, and the whole of East Friezeland, are to be united to Holland ; and that Silesia is to be erected into a separate Principality, or Dukedom, for one of Bonaparte's Marshals. DENMARK. We are happy to state, that the alarms respect- ing a rupture with Denmark, are at lead pre- mature, if not unfounded. By the Danish Consul letters have been received, announcing that on the g. d and 3d instant, the first division of the Ex- pedition from England, had passed the Sound, without the least interruption. The second di- vision had not then arrived. The number of ships, however, ordered into the Baltic, leads us to suppose that Government imagine the French will endeavour, though they have not done it yet, to drive the Danes from their system of neutrality towards this country, as soon as the Grand Army in Poland is at Li- berty to enforce Bonaparte's mandates. It is a humane policy in this country to send so respect able a force into the North Seas as may justify the Court of Denmark in refusing to comply with his demands. We understand that it will be more formidable than it was at first mentioned; viz. lo consist of at least 22 sail of the line, and a propor tionate number of frigates and smaller vessels. The ships of war altogether are expected to amount to about 40 sail ; and the most happy result may be expected from this necessary effort of vigour, not merely for a point of commercial interest, but for the honour and character of the country The command of this fleet, it is now reported, is to be given to Admiral Sir Charles Cotton, who has been sent for express, and is hourly ex- * pected in town. All the Pilots who are thoroughly acquainted with the passage of the Sound are ordered to as- semble at Yarmouth immediately, for the purpose of embarking on board the ships of war. The following passage is extracted from Lord Molesworth's account of Denmark, in the year 1692 :—" It is very well known, that the passage ot the Sound is not the only one to the Baltic Sea; there being two others, called the Greater and Lesser Belts, and that of the Great Belt so commodious and large, that during the late wars the whole Dutch fleet chose to pass through it, and continue in it for four or five months toge- ther ; and the Danish strength at sea, never appeared yet so formidable as to be able to oblige the English and Dutch to choose which passage it pleased. Besides, the breadth of the Sound, in the narrowest part, is four English miles over, and every where of a sufficient depth : so that his castles could not command the chan- nel when he was master of both sides, much less now that he has but one." [ BY THE TONNINGEN MAIL] " Elsmore, July 4. " On the 2d inst. arrived here his Majesty's ships Dispatch, Procris, and Charger, with a fleet of transports under convoy, the major part ol which proceeded immediately; the remainder, under convoy of the Charger, have not been able to prosecute their voyage till this day, hav- ing arrived later, when the wind became un- favourable, and continued so till noon.— This day sailed the Centinel gun brig, with the home- ward- bound trade under convoy, for the Nore; but fear they will return, as the wind has become unfavourable for them.'' Letters from Malta, of the 1st of June, men- tion, that the Spartan frigate had arrived there a few days before, from a cruise, and had been chaced by two different French squadrons out of Toulon. Her crew had been roughly handled in an unsuccessful attempt to cut out a large vessel in the port of Nice. Out of 70 men employed, there were 58 either killed or wounded both the lst and 2d Lieutenants lost their lives. A friend of Madame Sebastiani, who, before her marriage, was Mademoiselle de Coigni, has inserted in the Journal de l'Empire, an account of that Lady. We observe in it a specimen of that blasphemous adulation which has become the order of the day in France. " The health of Mademoiselle De Coigni" observes the Writer. " was impaired: she was taken to the waters of Plombieres. It was there that she found a visible Providence, ever ready to protect merit and mil- fortune ; the Empress was at those waters!" , His Majesty came to town 0n Wednesday from Windsor, and held a private levee ; at which the following had the honour of being presented to his Majesty : Prince George and Prince Augustus, of Ol- denburg, on their return from a tour through En- gland. Their Royal Highnesses at the same time look leave of his Majesty, previous to their leav- ing England. Counts Holmer and Malizahn on a similar occasion, and took leave of his Majesty previous to their leaving England. Sir George Hill, ou being appointed a Lord of the Irish Treasury. The Right Hon, George Ponsonby, the late Lord Chancellor of Ireland, on his return to England. Admiral Sir Sidney Smith, on his return from the Mediterranean, by Lord Mulgrave. The Bishop of Rochester presented to his Ma- jesty an Address from the Clergy of his Dio- cese. His Majesty held a Privy Couneil, and gave audiences to the Duke of Portland, the Earl of Camden ; Lords Hawkesbury, Castlereagh, Mul- grave ; Mr. Ponsonby, and Mr. Bond, who laid before his Majesty the proceedings of several Courts Martial. About six o'clock, his Majesty set off on his re- turn to Windsor. Sir Sidney Smith is arrived in town, and had yesterday an interview with the Board of Admi- ralty. Wednesday a Court of Directors was held at the East India House ; when Captain John Lo- gan was sworn into the command of the Experi- ment, destined to Madeira, Madras, and Bengal. It was Captain Boyd, of the 21st regiment who was killed by the wound he received in the duel at Newry, with Major Campbell of the same re- giment. Riot at Manchester.—" Last Monday being the Anniversary of several Friendly Societies in this town, the Members of one, called the Orange Club, consisting of Irish Protestants, attended Divine Service at the Collegiate Church ; but, in proceeding from thence, they were violently attacked by a number of their countrymen ( Ro- man Catholics), armed with bludgeons, & c. near High- street; when a dreadful rencontre took place, wherein several were dangerously wound- ed, some of whom were sent to the Infirmary. — Seven or eight of the ringleaders were appre- hended, and lodged in the New Bailey Prison. A detachment of the military remained on duty all that night."— Manchester Mercury, July 13. During the thunder storm on Saturday even- ing, the ReCtory- house of Great Cressingham, in Norfolk, was struck with lightning. It entered one of the rooms with a m0st tremendous crash, rent the chimney- piece and some pictures above it, was then attracted by the bell- wire, which it melted to atoms. Three ladies were in the room at the time, which appeared in ablaze, but pro- videntially all the family escaped unhurt. Tuesday an Inquest was held at the Sign of the Cape of Good Hope, at Limehouse, on the body of W. Penthouse, aged nine years, who died from the kick of a horse he was playing with a few days before. Verdict.— Accidental Death. A young woman, not twenty years of age, was committed to the gaol of Longford last week, for the murder of her husband, an athletic young man, at Rusky, in that county. They had not been married more than six months.— Her father had forced the marriage, contrary to her inclination. She made the unfortunate man intoxicated, and, with the assistance of two fe- males, younger than herself, when he was asleep, fastened a pair of tongs about his neck, and strangled him. She and one of her accomplices have confessed their guilt. A subscription was recently set on foot in dif- ferent parish churches in England, for the re- pairs of a church in Westmorland ; but the ex- pences of collecting the subscription amounted to 701. more than the subscription itself in which sum the parish was consequently minus ! Prediction Realised.— In Moore's Almanack for the present ( but published last) year, the fol- lowing singular prediction is inserted against the end of April:— " Near this time the Turkish Emperor dies, or, it may be, hides his head. His people are tumultuous. If he can save his life, let him; I give him fair warning!" It is singular, but true, that before the end of May this prediction was verified ! JULY 19.

General Koscinski writes from the camp at Friedland as follows: " The enemy was compelled to accept battle on the 14th.

VIENNA, JUNE 21.—- Our Court has received a Courier from Constantinople, with dispatches, an- nouncing a revolution to have taken place in that capital— but nothing has yet been published in the Gazette.— The following are the contents of two private letters :— " The Emperor Selim is no more— the discon. tents occasioned among the people by the scarcity of provisions, and among the Janissaries by the European exercise and discipline, furnished the ene- mies of Government with an occasion to excite an insurrection, which cost the unhappy Sultan his throne and life. " On the 24th of May, the Mufti, at the head of the malcontents, repaired with 300 Janissaries to the Seraglio, and read to him a list of his pre- tended offences, recited passages from the Koran, which declared him, on account of those offences, unworthy of the Throne, and ordered him to sign a renunciation of it. " Selim seeing no means of resistance, signed the Deed of Renunciation, and begged his life. The Mufti promised to intercede for him. His person was then secured, and 14 of his principal Ministers were put to death. Couriers were sent to the Camp and the Dardanelles, to arrest and Strangle the Grand Vizier and the Capitan Pacha. " On the 25th of May, a Proclamation was published in Constantinople, to announce to the1 people that the Sultan had been dethroned, and to make known his offences, and the passages of the Koran which condemned those offences. The peo- ple were invited to remain tranquil, and mind their affairs. On the 26th, Mustapha, the son of Achmet, was proclaimed Grand Seignior. On the 27th, he Sent an order to Selim to take poison. Selim obeyed, and died in a Short time. " During the whole of this revolution few disorders were committed. The mass of the peo- ple took 110 part at all; so that we attribute this catastrophe to some Chiefs of Parties yet unknown, and to the Janissaries., All foreigners have been ordered to be respected. " We are assured that the Grand Vizier made no resistance to the order sent him, and was Stran gled. Of the Capitan Pacha we know nothing. " The Grand Vizier had gained some successes before he died : he passed the Danube at Ismail, and forced General Michelson to retire from Wal- lachia to Foksany and Rimnick.

" On the 11th of June, at four o'clock in the morning, the Russians attacked Druezewo in great force. Gen. Claperede sustained the enemy's fire.

" All the enterprizes of the enemy against our posts on the 11th and 12th, turned to their own confusion. It is already seen by the Armistice, that the left wing of the Frency Army supports itself on the Carisch Haff, at the mouth of the Niemen, from whence our line extends it felt to- wards Grodno; the right, commanded by Marshal Massena, reaches to the confines of Russia, be- tween the Sources of the Narew and the Bug.

At the same time the Emperor Alexander, with the Grand Duke Constantine, General Benningsen, General Ou- waroff, Prince Labanoff, and hie first Adjutant General Count Lieben; put off from the oppo- site Banks. The two vessels reached the rast at the same time. The two Emperors embraced each other on leaving the vessels, and entered the pavillion which was prepared for them. Their conference lasted about two hours, and when it closed, the attendants of the two Emperors were admitted, The Emperor Alexander paid many handsome compliments to the French officers who attended Napoleon; and the latter conversed a long time with the Grand Duke Constantine and with Ge- neral Bennigsen. Both Emperors returned af- terwards to their vessels. June 20, Last night, immediately after the conference was over, Prince Labanoff arrived at the French head quarters. A Convention was concluded that one half of the town of TilSit was to be considered as neutral. His Majesty the Emperor Alexander, his retinue and guards, are to take up their quarters in the neutral part of the town. The Emperor Alexander, we under- stand, intends to dine to day with the French Emperor, and it is supposed the King of Prussia will be of the party. SUNDAY REPORTER. TUt- Y iq, Last Night's London Gazette. Downing Street, July, 17, 1807. Dispatches, of which the following are Extracts, have been received by Viscount Castlereagh, one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, from Major- General Fraser, commanding his Majestys Troops in Egypt: [ The first Letter is from Gen. Stuart to Gen. F as r, stating the preparations he had made for the siege of Rosetta ; as also, the interruption he met with from the enemy. He likewise men- tions various attacks from the town, in which the assistants were always repulsed, — Our loss in the different affairs, from the 6th to the 18th of April, was as follow, viz: 1 Serjeant, 5 rank' and file, killed ; 1 Briga- dier- General, 1 Brigade- Major, 1 Captain, 1 Lieutent, 6 Serjeants, 60 rana and file, 5 horses. wounded. Camp. Eastern Heights, Alexandria, SIR, April 25, 1807. I had the honour of stating in my last, that the expectation of the junction of the Mame- lukes had chiefly induced me to persevere in the attack of Rosetta : every exertion was continued to be made by such artillery as we. could com- mand, in reducing the enemy to surrender, but without effect : the mistaken ground upon which we were acting respecting the Mamelukes, and the general deception of our informers, were now about to become manifest. On the 19th the enemy left his position oppo- site Hamet, and crossing the river near Elsine, established himself there. He advanced from Dibet. against Hamet 011 the same day, and attacking Major Volgesang's position 011 the left, was repulsed. with loss; diversion was made at the same time at Rosetta, in a sortie against the left of our lines, by about 80 cavalry and 200 infantry ; the 35th regiment and the dragoons were engaged ; they repulsed the enemy with much spirit, and drove him, as usual, to his walls. The 35th had in this affair 2 killed and 14 wounded. 1 this evening detached the light companies of the 35th and of De Rolle's to the port of El Ha- met under the command ot Capt. Tarleton of the former. His orders were to drive the enemy across the Nile, either during that night, or ear- ly next morning. On attempting to effect this service on the 20th, the enemy was found to be powerful in cavalry, and Capt. Tarleton retired. — I must here state the nature of the position of Hamet: from Lake Edko to the Nile is an Isth- mus about about two miles and a half in extent, varying according to the depth of water in the Lake. The remains of a deep canal with high . banks extend from the river nearly two- thirds across this Isthmus ; the banks command the . plain on either side. The village of Hamet is on the southern side of the canal, about halfway across; its inhabitants were friendly to us. On ' the banks of the Nile and at Hamet are the on- ly two regular passes through the banks of the canal. At each of these was posted a gun, and a proportion of Major Wogelsang's detach- ment. From the termination of the Canal to the Lake is a plain, passable by cavalry. A pic- quet guarded this flank. As Captain Tarleton retreated, he divided his detachment; he directed the march of his own company to the left position, and sent the De Rolle's, reinforced to 100 rank and file, to Ha- met village. While crossing the plain, the latter detachment, under Capt. Reinack's orders, was suddenly attacked by 200 cavalry, and as it should appear, was with little opposition routed; two thirds were cut in pieces. Report of this reaching me by 11 o'clock in the forenoon I de- tached Lieut. Col. M'Leod with two companies of the 78th regiment, one of the 35th, a piquet of dragoons under Capt. Delancy, and a 6- poun- der, to reinforce the post, and take the command. Two more companies followed in the afternoon, with a day's provision . for his whole force, am- munition, & c. all which arrived safely. On the arrival of the reinforcement, the enemy retired towards Dileg, and I received assurance from the Lieutenant- Colonel before sun- set, of the perfect security ot his post ; he had detached three com panies, the dragoons, and a 3- pounder, under' Captain Tarleton's orders, to the plains on the right, and had reinforced the centre post by company of the 35th regiment; the average strength of these companies were 60 rank and file. During this day the enemy made. no movement against our lines at Rosetta, but, sent reinforce- ments to Hamet from the town by the right bank of the Nile. I visited the post of Hamet during the night of the 20th, and had the good fortune to escape the enemy's cavalry, who had turned Capt. Tarleton's position at sun- set, to the num ber of 150. Having reconnoitred the line of de- fence, which I found to be weak in many parts, and very extensive, I confirmed my former in- ftru& ious to Lieut.- Col. M'Leod, viz. that he should defend the post to the uttermost, but if likely to be forced or turned by a numerous cavalry, that he should concentrate and eppuyer himself upon the Lake ; that if this was not feasible, he should fall back on the main army. I at the same time concerted measures for a general re- treat on the succeeding night, unless certain in- telligence of the Mamelukes should arrive on the 21st. Although he had one- third, of my force under his orders, 1 gave him reason to expect a rein- forcement of 80 men more, with ammunition on the ensuing morning. About 7 o'clock on the morning of the 21st, i received the following express from him:—" The cavalry were not to be seen this morning ; but, to my utter astonishment, from 60 to 70 large germs, and a large brig, are now coming down the Nile upon us. I do not know what to say of this; it appears, undoubtedly, a reinforcement to the enemy, and one of considerable magnitude. I take it for granted they have, gun boats among them. I must make preparation, and be ready to retire upon you; let me know as soon as possible." My answer, immediately dispatched, was not received, the dragoon being unable to penetrate to the post. The reinforcement also, which had marched under the orders of your Aid- de- Camp, Capt. A'Court, was obliged to return. Not a moment was to be lost in breaking up from the position before Rosetta, and in supporting the Ha- met detachment. The advance upon us of a strong body of cavalry in that direction, prevented my detaching single corps in their relief, and it was necessary that the whole army should move to- gether. The field guns were first. withdrawn from the batteries ; all camels were laden with ammunition and idispensible stores ; the carro- nades and mortars kept up their fire on the town to the last moment that could be spared, and were then destroyed and buried ; all spare ammunition and stores were set fire to and blown up. The picquets remained in their sleeches until the field train, the wounded, and the stores were assembled in the plains, under the charge of the 78th and De Roll's Regiment, which formed a square round them. The brave 35th then retreated, followed by the Picquets. The enemy sallying from the town in all directions, surrounded our square; but the bold front which the 35th kept, under the command of Captain Riddle, and the flanking position of the Light Infantry Battalion, under Major O'Keefe, on the heights of Aboumandour, prevented him from making any impression. Nothing could surpass the steadiness of the troops you had entrusted to my comand. The 35th regiment fired by its wings ard platoons retiring ; and the 78th with its front rank kneel- ing, as during the movements of a field day. Under the direction of Colonel Oswald, who re- gulated proceedings in the rear, I felt confident of the good conduct of the whole. About ten o'clock our little army advanced across the sandy plain, in a direction for the lake Edko, and the right of the Hamet position. We arrived there about one o'clock, under continual fire, and after a sultry march ; our loss was not, however, con- siderable, the greater body of the enemy being kept at a distance. by the fire of our artillery from the flanks of the square. To my surprize not an individual of the Hamet detachment joined us on this march, nor could firing, be heard in that direction ; our last account Of their proceedings left them warmly engaged near to the village of Hamet, on the Rosetta side. Failing to meet them on the shore of the lake, it was necessary, in some measure, to re. trace our steps, and to look for them nearer to El Hamet. This could be effected by gaining some land hills, which were about a mile on our left. Our march was accordingly directed towards them, the Light Infantry now leading the front of the square, advanced with activity, and the enemy who occupied them dispersed in all directions. From those hills, which com- pletely commanded a view of the plain and Ha- met's position,. the enemy were seen to be in possession of the latter, and not any appearance of our detachment in the former. lt was appa- rent they had either effected a separate retreat to Edko, or been completely defeated, in either case it was adviseable under all circumstances. that the army should continue its original re- treat ; this was resumed in the same good order as before ; the left being flanked by the lake, the enemy ceased to pursue us. Our casualties during this retreat, did not exceed 50 killed aud wounded, and none were captured. The loss of our enemy was considerable, but we made no prisonsers- By sun set we arrived at the depot. Lieutenant Tilly with his usual ac- tivity, had, in consequence of my express to him, in the morning, safely embarked all provisions and stores. Having rest our wounded and our twelve- pounder on board Germs here, and re- freshed the army, we advanced to Edko," and took up our former position about two in the morning. On the 22d the whole of the stores which were at Edko, were safely embarked for the Cara » vansera, when the army marched for that post, and arrived in the afternoon without opposition. On the succeeding day the troops embarked for Aboukir's Wells ; the Caravansera was blown up under the direction of Captain Hallowell. No certain intelligence has reached me re- specting the fate of the detachment under Lieut. Colonel M'Leod. General report confirms their defeat in the forenoon of the 21st, and states many of them to be prisoners. Of this I will make no comment. Every step which a sense of duty could dictate was taken in order to secure the post of Hamet ; and it will, I sincerely trust, appear to you that none which prudence could suggest were omitted, in order that a junction should be ; formed with tlie detachment. That our unfortunate comrades, did their duty must not be doubted ; that all was lost, save honour, when they surrendered, must also not be doubted, In closing this letter I am bound to state, that I have been: ably- supported by: those who were under my orders. [ Captain S. then speaks in the highest terms ot the several Officers concerned in the above affair.

Dividends in aur next. SUNDAY, July 19. LONDON. THE Princess of Wales cutter, arrived at Yar- mouth on Thursday, from Memel, and brought over Lieutenant- Colonel Hervey, with difpatches from Lord Hutchinson. She landed the Colonel at Whitby the day before, whence he fet off im- mediately for town. The contents of thefe dif- patches have not tranfpired ; but tbey are be- lieved to relate to the conferences that have taken place between the two Emperors, and the consequences likely to result from theme Reports of a favourable description have got into circu- lation, respecting the pending Negociations for Peace on the Continent, in which, it is confident- y said some of the claims of this country will be attended to. Certain it is, however, that we have yet no authority on which any such opinion Can rest. The private letters from Memel. aftermen- tioning the conclusion of the Armistice state, that at the conferences which subsequently took place neither. Lord Hutchinson, nor any other accre dited English agent, was present — a fact which we had before ascertained. . , The British Consul from Altona is arrived at Harwich, and is hourly expected in town. At the first meeting, which took place on the 25th, only the Emperor Alexander and Bona parte were present. A second interview, at which the King of Prussia was present, took place on the following day, at half past twelve, in a pavillion constructed on a little island in the Niemen. A third interview took place on the 58th, which was followed bv a dinner. His Prussian Majesty was also present on this occa- sion„ The Gazette of Munich announces the death of the Prussian Minister, Count Haugwitz. The fleet destined for the Baltic is expected to be ready to sail by Monday next. It will pro- ceed in two divisions ; and tbe chief command is given to Admiral Gambier ( a Lord of the Admiralty, and an officer of- great judgment and experience), who will immediately hoist his blue flag at the main. He will be accompanied by Sir Home Popham, who will act as Captain of the Fleet. Vice- Admiral Sir John Borlase Warren, Rear- Admiral Ellington, and Commo- dores Hood and Keate will command under Admiral Gambier. It is considered that this measure will either be the means of preventing a war with Denmark, by the protection. which fo formidable a force will hold out to her against the menaces of France ; or, in the event of hos- tilities, deprive the enemy of the means of em- ploying the naval force of that Power against us. If is said, that advice has been received ol the death of Admiral Sir Thomas Louis, on board the Canopus, off Alexandria. We hope that this report will prove erroneous ; at least, we believe that it has not yet reached this country in an of- ficial shape. The, ship George is arrived in the Downs from St. Domingo, She has brought private letters of the 26th May, which state that Christophe, the new Chief, was completely in disgrace, and that Petion had been invited to assume the su- preme- power of the State. This invitation, it is added, was immediately accepted ; and the first act of Petion was, to order an embargo on all vessels in Port- au- Prince, in order to enable him to convey troops to Gonaives, to act against Christophe. HiS Majesty's ship Lancaster was to sail from Monte Video, with a large convoy for England, the beginning of May. Viscount Castlereagh deferred his Motion on the National Defence, yesterday, in the house of Commons, until Wednesday next. Rumour states, that an account has been re- ceived of the renewal of preparations at Bou- logne for the invasion of this country. The mi- litary force already collected at that place amounts to about 16,000 men. Government, we may presume, entertain con- fident hope's of the safety of the Blenheim.— Dis- patches were last night made up at the Admiralty for Sir T. Trowbridge, tbe Commander of that vessel, addressed to the Cape of Good Hope. The Minerva, of Guernsey, has arrived at that Island from Monte Video, from which she sailed on the 27th of April, and brings advices that no attack had been made on Buenos Ayres up to that date. The Captain reports, that the Spaniards, to the number of 2000 and upwards, beaded by a Frenchman, made an attack on Maldonado a few days before his departure. The place was defended by an inferior British force. The conflict was desperate while it lasted, but was never for a moment doubtful. — Our troops soon put the Spaniards to flight, and made great slaughter among them; and many prisoners were taken.— Our loss did not exceed three men killed, and a few wounded. The Spaniards who were suffer- ed to remain at Monte Video after its capture had contrived to secrete in their houses a quan- tity of arms and ammunition, for the purpose, no doubt, of attempting an insurrection ; but their plans were timely discovered, and the arms and ammunition seized. The moment General Craufurd should arrive with reinforcements, an attack was to be made on Buenos Ayres. The Governor has ordered that no Spaniards shall be in the streets after nine o'clock at night. Letters from Tonningen of the 8th inst. state that an order had been issued, that all the ships which were ordered away by our Consul were again to return, and take in their cargoes, no ap- prehensions for their safety being entertained. An order was received on Wednesday at Ports- mouth, for every frigate, sloop, and gun- brig, that was ready, or could by any exertion te got ready immediately to sail for the Downs without loss of time. They were ordered at the fame time to take flat- bottomed boats with them. Seven frigates and brigs sailed in the course of the evening. The proffered mediation of Austria appears'to have'been for a General Peace ; but Bonaparte refused to admit England into any negotiation that related to Continental affairs. IN the action of the 14th June, Lord Hutchin- son, who was near General Bennigsen, had a very narrow escape. His horse was killed under him by the bursting of a shell. We are happy to add, that his Lordship was not wounded., though considerably bruised. The Channel Fleet, under the command of Lord Gardner, has put into Torbay. The homeward- bound Jamaica fleet is, arrived, under convoy of La Pique and the Anson. The fleet consisted of 170 sail; The Anson parted company off the Land's End, with the trade for Bristol, Liverpool,. & c. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales is ex- pected to leave town on the lst or 2d of next month for Brighton. By the particular desire of bis Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, Brighton and Lewes Races are to be this year a fortnight later than usual, to be as near to his Royal Highness's birth- day as may be. Brighton commences on the 7th of next month, and Lewes on the 13th.

On Friday the Duke and Duchess of York, and the Dukes of Kent and Cambridge, dined with the Duchefs of Brunswick and the Princess of Wales at Blackheath. Saturday last, a melancholy accident happen- ed at Portsmouth. As Mrs. Greenway, wife of Lieutenant Greenway, was walking on the deck of the Plantagenet man of war, accompanied by her husband, her foot slipped, and she fell down the main hatchway into tbe hold, when her head striking against the iron ballast, she was killed in- stantly. A few evenings ago, as Mrs. Lloyd, the wife of the Collector of the Customs, at Ipswich, was returning home from a visit, she was met by some officers of dragoons, who treated her in a very indecent manner, and even beat her. Mr. Lloyd very laudably resorted to the laws of his country for redress; and these military men were taken before a Magistrate, whom they thought pro- per grossly to insult, as well as a Clergyman who supported him in the discharge of his duty. The following we copy from a provincial Paper; " On Wednesday se'nnight a party of officers sal- lied from the barracks at Ipswich, " reeling ripe for sport," for the laudable purpose of kicking up a row in the lobby of tbe Theatre; in which they were so successful as completely to prevent a crowded audience from hearing the entertainment — and several ladies fainted and were carried out of the house. Same night, one of these gallant gentlemen ( supposed - from a previous pique) attacked a respectable elderly lady in the street, whose husband, belonging to a public office, had just quitted her side, and rudely applied his ma- nus a posteriori ; but without any material in- jury, This indignant assault, although it ex- cited much risibility in the town, was, however, properly resented by the lady, who giving pretty strong evidence of the fact before a Magistrate, the offending party ( already under recognizances for his good behaviour) was bound over to appear at the Sessions."— Bury Post. FROM THE HAMBURGH AND ALTONA PAPERS. MUNICH, July 3.— In the affair of Eylau on • the 4th of February, tbe first regiment of Bava- rian Light Horse, under Count Charles of Pop- penheim, were posted with the 14th regiment of French Hussars, under General Latour Mau- bourg." Four Russian battalions, which had formed a square, were to be attacked by these two regi- ments; their first attack was repelled. The Co- lonel then collecting his men, " My lads ( said he) we are Bavarians ; there is no remedy, we must penetrate through the Russians. Your ho- nour and mine renders this measure unavoidable. Brave Comrades ! certainly you will follow me!" He then put himself at the head of his regiment, and gave the signal for the attack. A dreadful fire again compelled his brave men to fall back, and the Colonel fell. Suddenly the whole corps cried, " Stop ! we must avenge the death of our brave Colonel." This they effected ; not more than 100 Russians escaped from the bloody sa- crifice. The Colonel received two musket balls in his body and his thigh, and died in the arms of his trumpeter, who had never left him in any of the actions that he had been engaged in. His last words were," It is all over; take my sabre." He was brought to the village of Allenstein, where he died without the least apparent dis- composure. The Emperor Napoleon sent him his own physician ; but it was too late. On the 6th, he was buried in the Catholic church of that place, by the parish priest. A monument is preparing to perpetuate his memory. VIENNA, June 24.— The latest letters from Constantinople confirm the accounts of the depo- sition of Selim, but correct most of the details given in the first reports. Hitherto Mustapha has kept his promise of preserving the life of Se- im. The Prince is still alive, residing in the Old Seraglio, COPENhAGEN, July 4. An English Captain, arrived in the Sound from Riga, has asserted, that the inhabitants had begun to flee from that city. A part of the English expedition has passed through the Great. Belt. Upwards of 50 sail also, that entered the Sound, passed this city on the 2d inst. SUNDAY REPORTER JULY t Parliamentary Intelligence. HOUSE OF LORDS, Monday, July 10.' Several Bills were brought up from the Com- mons, and passed through a stage each. TUESDAY. The Earls of Chesterfield, Portsmouth, and Charlemont, took the oaths. The Traders' Assets, and Lord Powerscourt's Bills, were brought up and read a first time. The Report of the Indemnity Bill having been made, Lord HOLLAND offered a long Amendment to the preamble, in which he recapitulated the violations ot the Bill of Rights, the Tonnage and Poundage Acts, and the Navigation Laws, com- mitted by the order of Council; but it was re- jected without a division. The Bill was or- dered to be read a third time. AMERICAN TRADE BILL. The Order of the Day, for the second reading of the American Trade Bill, having been read- Lord HOLLAND rose for the purpose of ex- preffing his perfedt concurrence in the principle of the Bill before their Lordships. Any meafure tending to improve and consolidate the connec- tion between this country and the United States of America, should always have his most cordial approbation. The two countries found their mutual advantages in the intercourse which sub- sifted between them. It was not eafy to deter- mine to which it was most beneficial. It had always been his wish, that the closest union should exist between the two countries; he did not mean that they should be bound together by a treaty of offensive and defensive alliance, but that a free and extensive commercial lntercourse should al- ways continue between them. Lord BATHURST explained the nature of tbe Bill, and observed that it was precisely of the fame tenor as that proposed; by the two last Ad- ministrations. The present Government aded. with respect to America, upon the principles of the last . Lord SUFFOLK made some few observations in favour of an intimate connection with the United States. Lord hoLLAND explained. Lord LAUDerDALE could not refrain from making some remarks upon the different senti- mente entertained by the present Ministers with respect to America, when they were in and out of office. When in opposition, though they pro fessed to coincide with the wishes of Government, they were at the same time most assiduous in thwarting in an underhand way every one of their measures. This was one of the subjects upon which they endeavoured to excite the popular indignation. They were pleased to suppose the late Administration guilty of concessions to Ame rica, which, if their conjectures were well found- ed, would amount to little less than an aban- donment of the great principles to which this country owed her commercial prosperity and na- val preponderance. If ever there was a rotten and treacherous opposition, it was that which his Majesty's late Ministers experienced in that House. It was bottomed upon no manly, fair, ot Constitutional principle. There was nothing dig nified or courageous in it; all was underhand nothing above board. Lord MulGRAVE defended the conduct of the late Opposition. The principles upon which they aded were before the public, and by the public they would be judged. The Bill was then read a second time. WEDNESDAY. AMERICAN TREATY. On the question being put for the third read In of the American Treaty Indemnity Bill, Lord SUfFOLK took occasion to advert to the necessity of cultivating a friendly disposition with America. The Bill was then read a 3d time and passed The Million and a Half, and Three Millions Exchequer Bills Bills, went through a Commit- tee.— Adjourned. THURSDAY. The Earl of Egmont took the oaths, The Irish Hearth Tax Regulation, and seve ral private Bills, were brought up and read a firtt time. The exchequer Bills Bills were read a third time and passed. The second reading of the Parish Apprentices, the Traders' Assets, and Irish Glebe Houses Bills, was postponed, on the motion of the Duke of NORFOLK, till Monday, the 27th inst. His Grace stated, that it was his intention to move on that day, that the further consideration of the first of theie Bills should be postponed for three months.— Adjourned. FRIDAY. The Royal Assent was given I v Commission to Sir J. Stuart's Annuity Bill, the two Exchequer Bills Bills, the American Treaty Continuation Bill, American Treaty Indemnity Bill, and se veral private Bills.— The Commissioners present were the Lord Chancellor, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Lord Walsingham. A conversation took place upon the Bill grant- ing to his Majesty 150,0001. for the purpose of building Glebe Houses in Ireland. Lord SUF- FOLK spoke at some length, and the Bill was af terwards read a second time. The Bills were then forwarded in their respec- tive stages, and the House adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. MONDAY. The three million Exchequer Bills Bill was read a third time and passed. After some routine business the House ad- journed. TUESDAY. A new Writ was ordered for the Eledion of a Member for the Borough of Bandon, in the room of Lord Boyle, now Earl of Shannon. Also for the Eledtion of a Member for the Borough of Tralee, in the room of Sir Arthur Wellesley, who had made his Eledtion for the Borough of Newton, for which also he had been returned. ARMY CLOATHING. The Hon. C. JOHNSTONE, pursuant to notice, rofe to move for various papers and accounts, intimately connected with a motion he had given notice of for Monday week, respecting the Army Cloathing, This was a most important subject ; and he intended, when it came forward to sug- gest certain savings, which, should they be adopted, would entitle him to the gratitude of the House and the country, he concluded by moving for the first, which was an account of all sums of money issued to Army Agents, on ac- count of clothing the respective regiments for which they acted, from the 24th of December, 1805, to the 25th of December, 1806. The SECRETARY AT WAR, had no objection to the motion, but he thought the subject thus taken up by the Honourable Gentleman was much more fitted for the investigation of the Finance Committee. Mr. ROSE said, the subject was one of consi- derable importance. Clothing for tbe Army ge- nerally cost the country annually about 800,0001. and could any saving or retrenchment be pointed out by the Hon. Gentleman, it would be ex- tremely desirable. The motions were then put and carried. The Irish Salted Beef and Pork Export Bill second time, and committed for to- was read a morrow. On the motion of Mr. PERCEVAL, the House. resolved into a Committee on his Majesty's most gracious Message of yesterday, requesting tbe House to enable the King to settle upon her Ma- jesty, during life, Frogmore- house and grounds, with descent to her daughters the Princesses. A Resolution to introduce a Bill to that effect was agreed to ; the House was returned, and the Report was ordered to be received to- mor- row. Lord H. PETTY rose to move, that the House do now resolve into a Committee on the several Acts relating to the Finances. It was unnecessary for him to detain the House at present, having on a former occasion fully explained his object which was, to originate a Bill for appropriating to the public service the excesses of the Sinking Fund. The Question, on its being put from the Chair, passed in the negative. The other Orders of the Day were disposed of, and the House adjourned. WEDNESDAY., Mr. HOBHOUSE brought up a Report from a Committee of the whole Houfe of last night, au thorising the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland to issue from the Consolidated Fund, certain annual sums towards the erection of Public Infirmaries in Ireland.— The Resolution was read and agreed to; and the Gentlemen appointed to bring in a Bill for erecting Public Infirmaries in Ireland were ordered to make provision therein, pursuant to the above Resolution. Mr. FOSTer then rose, and proposed a Reso- ution, granting a sum of 13,0001. to the Roman Catholic Seminary at Maynooth, for the service of the year 1807 Mr. ELLIOT took a review of the Maynooth Institution, where priests were educated in the Roman Catholic persuasion. He contended, that the institution was highly proper, and worthy the support and countenance of Parliament, as the Priests it reared and brought up, received the necessary education in the country, and were not as formerly exposed to the contamination o French principles, by receiving their education on the Continent of Europe. Mr. H. BROWNE observed that the institution of Maynooth was an anomaly, that he by no means could be reconciled to Governnment, he observed, paid for the instruction of people in a religion, which was not the established religion of the country. He had no objection to the reso- lution, provided its expence was defrayed by Catholics, whose friends or relatives might de- rive benefit from the, institution. Mr, WINDHAM expressed his surprise at what had fallen from the Hon. Gentleman who had just sat down. Did that Hon. Gentleman mean to deny that the Roman Catholic religion ought to exist ? It must, and it would exist, in spite of all the opposition it had encountered ; and people in Ireland must still be instructed in its tenets and doctrines, by those Priests, educated either at home or abroad, or, if they would have it so, in an enemy's country. This was the inevitable con- sequence of those laws which had passed against Popery. They had produced the effect of grind- ing the people of Ireland into a state of grossness, such as never had been heard of before. Such laws were well calculated to render the people gross, but he thought nothing could possibly be found so truly gross as our abominable cry of " No Popery," and that sort of Protestantism, of which the people of England seemed to make such a boast.' The same great and divine truths inculcated by the Protestant Faith, were promul- gated by that of the Roman Catholics ; and as it was impossible for us Protestants to convert Ca- tholics to Protestantism, it was in his mind our bounden duty to make Catholics as good and as virtuous as Catholics could be. Religious in- struction, the Right Hon. Gentleman said, was all that was wanting to render Catholics true patriots, and therefore the resolution before the Committee should have his decided support. Mr. H. BROWNE, in explanation, objected to the instruction of Roman Catholics at the ex- pence of the Public, he had no objection, he said, to the institution of Parochial Schools, in- discriminately for the great and sublime purposes of propagating the Christian Religion, in which he was happy to think all who heard him agreed. Mr. PARnell produced a Catholic Com- mon Prayer- book, compiled by Dr. Coppinger of Cork, and read several passages from it, shew- ing what were, and what were not, articles of faith between Catholics and Protestants. The Hon. Gentleman supported the Resolution on' all the grounds of its necessity, expediency and liberality. In the course of the discussion a good deal of asperily took place between Mr. Foster and Lord Howick ; his Lordship asserting, that the docu- ments for the last grant for Maynooth might have been found, had Mr. Foster only looked for it. Mr. FOSTEr. replied that the Noble Lord had accused him of neglect, carelessness, and levity. He called on Lord Howick to declare, whether, or not, he knew of any office from which such a document could have been obtained. He could not obtain it, and therefore it was not in his power to originate or follow up an inquiry. Lord Howick replied that the Right Hon. Gentleman might have found documents in the Secretary of State's office, had he condescended to have taken the trouble of looking for them. Mr. Foster replied with some warmth. Some farther conversation ensued, in which Dr. Duignan, Lord Milton, and other members took a part. The resolutions were then agreed to, and the report was ordered to be received to- morrow, A Message from the Lords stated, that their Lordships had agreed to the American Inter- course Indemnity Bill. In a Committee of Ways and Means, a vote was agreed to on the motion of Mr. Huskisson, for granting to his Majesty 19,800,0001. out of the War Taxes ; also 171,1851. as the surplus grants of 1806, and 139,0001. as the profits of the Fourth Lottery. The Report was ordered to be received to- morrow. After going through and disposing of the other Orders of the Day, the House adjourned. JULY 19. SUNDAY REPORTER. 2 n THURSDAY. A new Writ was ordered for the Borough of Hertford in the room of the Right Hon. Lord Robert Seymour, who has made his eledion for the County of Caermarthen, A new Writ was also ordered for the Borough of Midhurst, in the room of Samuel Smith, Esq. who has made his election for the Borough of Leicester. The Folkestone Pier and Harbour Bill was passed, and ordered to the Lords. BREACH or PRIVILEGE. — Mr. LOWTEN, & C, Mr. JEFFERY ( one of the Members for Poole) rose, pursuant to notice, to complain of a fla- grant breach of the law, and of the Privileges of the House of Commons. He stated, that a writ had been issued, in the usual form, on the 29th of April last, for the election of two Members to serve for the town and borough of Poole. That writ had been issued, and left with the clerk of Mr. Lowten, in the Temple, The parties, candidates, & c. went down of course at the time appointed for the election ; and many of the elec- tors actually remained at Poole for three weeks or a month, in order to give their votes. How- ever, a delay, at that time unaccountable, took place, till at last the Sheriff gave notice, that the election should take place on the 25th of May. One of the causes of the delay, as it afterwards appeared, was, that one of the voters was not eligible to vote till the 22d of May, when he came of age; the consequence of which was, that when the election came on, there was a double return as to two out of three candidates. Mr. Jeffery farther stated, that he had applied to Mr. Lowten to know what was become of the writ? Mr. Lowten told him that it had been sent three hours before. In answer to another inquiry, Mr. Lowten gave him a rude and un- mannerly reply; namely, that he would not in- form him ( Mr. Jeffery) to whom it was sent; but, for his consolation, he might be assured, that it was sent down against his interest. Sir Richard Bickerton, a Lord of the Admiralty, who was one of the Candidates, went down, and was kept at Poole for a length of time, in consequence of this delay, with great inconvenience to the pub lic service. He would therefore move, " That Mr. Staniforth, the Messenger of the Great Seal, be now called 111, to substantiate, by evidence, the statement which had been made." Mr. CREEVEY wished first to ascertain to what point of evidence Mr. Staniforth's examination was to go ? The SPEAKER said, that the subject, as stated by the hon. Member for Poole, deeply affected the privileges of the House. Whoever presumed to detain the issuing of a writ, was Guilty of a High Crime and Misdemeanour; as it went to de- prive those of their seat who ought to be iu that House. It was only by the examination of evi- dence that the House could ascertain how far the allegation of the Hon. Gentleman was substan- tiated. Mr. Staniforth was then called in, and inter- rogated at the Bar, by the SPEAKER, as follows: When did you receive the last writ for the election of a Member to serve for the town and county of Poole ?— A. On the 29th of April last. Q. To whom did you deliver it?—- A. To Jo- nathan Brundrett. Q. When ?— A. Within two hours after I re- ceived it. Q. Who is he ?— A. Chief Clerk to Mr. Low- ten, Attorney. Q. To what purpose did you deliver to him that writ ?— A. To send it down with expedition to the Sheriff at Poole. Mr. JEFFERY then moved, " That Jonathan Brundrett do attend this House to- morrow;" but, on the suggestion of the SPEAKER, that the motion should be first for the attendance of the principal and then of the clerk, Mr. Jeffery al- tered his motion thus : " That Mr. Thomas Lowten, Attorney at Law, and his clerk, Jona- than Brundrett, do attend this House to- mor- row ; and that the farther consideration of the cause of the delay or miscarriage of the writ, be deferred till to- morrow."— Ordered. The British Museum Property Exchange Bill was read a first time. VOLUNTEER FORCE. Sir T. TURTON rose for the purpose of moving for the return of the effective Volunteer Force of Great Britain and Ireland. He therefore moved " That there be laid before the House a Return of the effective force of the different Volunteer Corps of Great Britain aud Ireland, distinguish- ing Cavalry from Infantry, op to the lasted period when such Return can be made out." The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER did not suppofe that the Hon. Baronet would be able to obtain any information more accurate than in the statement which had been already laid upon the Table in January last. As the law now stood, the Commanding Officers of the several Volun- teer Corps were obliged to make returns of the amount of their force several times in the year ; at any rate, the returns were none other than what the Officers themselves gave in since the appointment of Inspecting Field Officers had been dispensed with.— These Officers had not been re- appointed till lately, and none of their returns had yet been received. Mr. ShAW LEFEVRE warmly contended, that the reason of the decrease of the Volunteer Force was by no means from any conduct pursued, or any language held in that House, but merely be- cause there did not appear any immediate neces. sity for their services, as the enemy was not then on the coast. But, should the enemy return to the coast, he was convinced it would soon appear that there was no falling off, either in the num- bers or spirit of the Volunteers. The motion was then put and carried. A Message from the Lords stated the concur- rence of their Lordships in the Three Millions, and One Million and an Half Exchequer Bills Bills. The other Orders were then disposed of, and the House adjourned. FRIDAY. The Speaker, with the House, went up to the House of Peers, where the Royal Assent was given by Commission to the Exchequer Bills Bill, Sir John Stuart's Annuity Bill, and several other Bills. POOLE WRIT — BREACH OF PRIVILEGE. Mr. JEFFERY moved the order of the day to be read, that Jonathan Brundrett be brought forthwith to the Bar of the House. He was brought accordingly, and interrogated by Mr. Speaker. Q. What occupation are you of?— A. An At- torney. Q. Are you a principal, or do you act for another ?—- A. I am employed to act for another. Q. Did you in the month of April last receive from the Messenger of the Great Seal, a Writ for the election of a Member to serve in Parlia- ment for the borough of Poole?— A. I did, Q. What did you do with that Writ?— A. I gave it to another person immediately after.— I am not conscious of auy intention to have vio- lated the orders of this House, which I hold in the highest respect. My offence, if it was one, was unintentional, and I ask pardon of the House. Q. To whom did you give that Writ?— A. I feel bound in honour and confidence, not to dis- close the name of the person.- The SPEAKER told the witness, if he did not understand the question, he would repeat it, that he might have an opportunity of reflecting and chusing deliberately whether he would answer it or not. The question was accordingly twice repeated from the Chair; but the witness persisted in declining to answer it-, and threw himself on the clemency of the House. The witness was ordered to withdraw. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER rose, and moved that the witness, Jonathan Bruudrett, in contumaciously refusing to answer the ques- tions put to him by this House, was guilty of a gross violation of its privileges ; which motion being carried, he next moved that the said Jo- nathan Brundrett be committed to his Majesty's gaol of Newgate. After several opinions had been given the ques- tion was carried, that Mr. Brundrett be commit ted to his Majesty's goal of Newgate, for refusing- to answer to the interrogatories put to him by the authority of the House. Mr. JEfFErY then moved, that Mr. Lowten be called in, and stated that when he called on Mr. Lowten, he informed him that the writ had been sent to Poole, three hours before, by a Messenger; and, on farther inquiry, observed that if it were any consolation to him, he could tell him that it was gone down in opposition to him. After some conversation, in which Mr. W. Smith, Mr. Windham, Lord Howick, and Mr. Percival, took a part, it was resolved that Mr. Lowden be called in. Mr. Lowten accordingly appeared at the Bar, and was examined by the Speaker on- the differ- ent questions put by Mr. Jeffery, He stated in substance that he did not order the sending of the Writ, and that, of his own knowledge, he could not tell who did, neither was he privy to its be- ing sent. He had since stated to Mr. Jeffery, that it was not sent to Poole, but to the City. He had told Mr. Brundrett, that he ought lo send it to the person employing him. He had not the least recollection of mentioning Poole. He was just going to dinner, when Mr. Jeffery and another Gentleman called upon him and they came into his place of business. He did not remember his words very particularly, but did not recollect saying that the Writ was sent down in opposition to Mr. Jeffery. He remembered there was a Gentleman with Mr. Jeffery, whom he knew, a Mr. William Graves, an Attorney;, but there was also one with him too. On being asked who the person was that was with him, he made some objections to answer, and was or- dered to withdraw. Mr. BURTON thought it very odd the witness should decline to answer. Mr. JEFFERY declared his intention of placing the offence on the person who had actually com- mitted such a breach of the Privileges of Parlia- ment. Mr. Lowten was again called in; and the SPEAKER questioning him again as to the name of the person with him, he said his name was Mr. William Bryant. He believed he was an Attor- ney, but was not quite certain. He was neither clerk nor assistant to him. Being asked to what person or persons he referred, when he advised Mr. Brundrett to go into the City, and give the Writ to his employer, a conversation ensued, as to the propriety of the question, between Mr. Martin, Mr. Leycester, and others. The ques- tion being put, Mr. Lowten answered, To one or two Gentlemen." Being asked who they were, he replied, " Mr. Ambrose Weston, and ano- ther of the same name." He believed, in farther examination, that his name was James. His knowledge of Brundrett's being employed by Messrs. Weston, did not arise from any informa- tion from the latter, but from Brundrett. When asked what Brundrett said to him on that subject, he declined answering ; and having withdrawn, Mr. MARTIN and Mr. BARHAM objected to the question, when, after a few words from the CHAN- CELLOR of the EXCHEQUER, he was called in, and being asked how many Writs Brundrett re- ceived from the Messenger of the Great Seal, he answered five, the description of each of which he was very ready to tell, which was thought unnecessary. Brundrett told him afterwards, he had delivered the Writ in the City, and not that he had sent it to Poole. At his desire, however, Brundrett went some time afterwards to Poole, and when he came there, he found the Writ in the hands of the Returning Officer. He could not ascertain how long it was after the delivery of the Writ in the City. The dates he could not pre- cisely ascertain. He had been out of town about a fortnight. He knew Mr. Jeffery, before he called upon him, by name and by person, but no further. He had never sat down in his com- pany, nor had any sort of acquaintance with him. The House then resolved, that the further con- sideration of the business be postponed till Mon- day next, when Ambrose and James Weston, William Graves and William Bryant, were or. dered to attend. Mr. BARHAM thought, that this would not, after what had been done, be going far enough ; he therefore moved, that the Messenger of the Great Seal be ordered to attend, which, after some observations from Lord Ossulstone and Mr. Huskisson, was ordered accordingly. Lord CASTLEREAgh, after the length of time which had been taken up in the discussion with which the House had been occupied, thought it would be inconvenient to proceed on the impor- tant subject of which notice had been given for this night, in his absence, on a former occasion. He wished that it might be practicable to bring it forward on Monday; but as that day would be inconvenient to the Noble Lord opposite, and to others who were desirous to take a part in the discussion, he would fix the motion for the introduction of the Bill for Wednesday, hoping that as measures would be taken to have the Bill printed and distributed on that day, there would be no difficulty in agreeing to the second; reading on Friday. The expositton of the plan would therefore stand for Wednesday, the is-:]! to be introduced that day, and read a second time on Friday-. The House then adjourned. 231 SUNDAY REPORTER JULY 19. ANOTHER CHILD WITH TWO MOTHERS An examination took place Thurfday, at Guildhall, of a singular narure.— Elizabeth Ben net was charged by Mary Baddiker, with stealing her child, while she was in a fit, near Holborn. The complainant stated, that she was delivered of a child in St. Andrew's Workhouse, in Gray's Inn- lane, and, after remaining there three weeks, she found herself sufficiently recover- ed to leave the house with her infant, and take lodgings in Spread- Eagle court, at the house of a widow woman of the name of Farren. She was furnished with linen, & c. by the parish ; and the infant, when found, was wrapped in that linen. After recovering from the fit, and not being able to find her child, she informed the Officers of St. Andrew's parish of the circumstance, who imme- diately issued hand bills; and, after the expiration of a few days, the lost child was found in the pos- session of a Mrs. Field, in Red Lion- Court, Lon- don- Wall, who stated that she was employed by the prisoner to nurse the infant, at a certain sum per week. Mrs. Field added, that she knew Eli- zabeth Bennet to be pregnant; that she left her house to be delivered in St. Mary- le- bonne Work- house ; that the father of the child was a prisoner in the King's Bench, and had acknowledged that he supposed himself to be so. Mrs. Field faid the prisoner minutely detailed to her various circum- stances which happened during her absence, and did not attempt at any time to conceal the child, but, on the contrary, exposed it more in the street than the { Mrs. F.) deemed necessary. The prisoner had, when she came to her house, all the appearance of a Woman recently delivered. Some of the Officers of St. Andrew's identified the clothes, of the child. The prisoner; being called upon for her defence, assured the Magiftrate that not a single statement of the complainant, as far as respected her, was' true. She had unfortunately, been apprehended at a time which precluded her from bringing for- ward evidence, which must establish, satisfactorily her innocence, to the confusion of the wicked wo man who had brought this charge. She faid, she lay in on the 20th of June, in St. Mary- le- bonne Workhouse, and remained there a fortnight. She made the child's cloathing previous to her going there, out of some old apparel her mother had given her, who lives in a Baronet's family at the West End of the town, and was in the Workhouse only 24 hours before she was delivered.' [ Here an al- tercation took place' between the prisoner and the complainant, in which the former was extremely severe-; but the did not seem to feel that anxiety for the welfare of the infant, which was visible in every action and gesture of the latter.] The Magistrate said, he could not proceed fur- ther in the investigation of this mysterious affair, till the whole of the parties appeared before him. It was impossible for him, as the case now stood, to determine to whom the child belonged, and order- ed Mrs. Field to take charge of the infant till Sa- turday ; but Mrs. F. declined it, and, after some conversation, it was agreed that the complainant and the child should remain in St. Andrew's Work- house till the next examination, when the matrons and nurses of both poor- houses are summoned to attend, as well as every person who can be sup- posed to throw any light on the affair. police. Wednesday, at Marlborough- street Police Office, John Lemon, a hackney- coachman, was charged by a gentleman and lady with abuse, and assaulting them. It appeared, that after calling the defend- ant off the stand in the Strand, he was anxious to know whether he was going eastward or westward. The prosecutor refused to satisfy him until he got into the coach, when he ordered him to drive to Westminster ; at which the- defendant, who had been drinking, grumbled, and said his road home was toward the City ; and it being twelve o'clock at night, he did not care how soon he arrived there, and immediately drove off towards the City : the remonstrances on the part of the prose- cutor only served to induce the coachman to drive faster, and, having drove as he thought proper for about twenty minutes, he set down his fare in the midst of the City. Mr. Lemon was fined 40s. and costs, at which he looked extremely sour. Thursday, at Marlborough- street, Willaim Payne, was charged with gaining admission in. to the family of Mr. Fitzgerald, as a servant, by means of a forged character. The culprit repre- sented himself to have lived with a Mr. Williams four years, to whom he referred for a character.— On the prosecutor writing to Mr. W. he received a most satisfactory character from this person, who, instead of the late master, proved to. be the father- in- law of the prisoner, an old petitioner, residing at Isleworth. The prisoner had been found pilfer- ing in Mr. Fitzgerald's house, which led to the de- tection. He was committed till the Sessions. Thursday J. Knight, alias Kew, T. Dutfield, and A. Weatherstone, were charged at Hatton Garden Office, with stealing from the York Mail, in March last, notes, value 4000I. The two for- mer were committed for re- examination; and the latter admitted to bail. At Union Hall, Thursday, Mr. Shepperd, a corn- chandler on Newington Causeway, appeared to answer a complaint for that he, being legally required to furnish a horse and cart, which he kept, for the purpose of conveying a part' of the baggage of a regiment of Light Dragoons, when on their march to the coast, refused so to do. It was known, that he had the notice required by law, but that be refused to comply with it. The Sitting Magistrate observed, that fuch conduct; if generally adopted, must have a most mischievous tendency, especially at this time— when every heart and hand should go in unison against the common enemy, are men to refuse furnishing the aid the law requires ? As it was his first offence, and might probably operate as a Caution to others, he was fined in the mitigated penalty of 40s, only, and costs. . hAYMArKET. Thursday night a Melo- Drame, in three acts, called " THE FORTRESS," was pro- duced: it is a translation, by Mr. Theodore Hook, from a French piece, called La Fortresse du Da- nube, performed with great success at Paris.— The principal characters were as follow : — • Count Everard Mr. YOUNG. Count Adolphus - ' Mr. CARLEs. ' Major Valbron - Mr, CHAPMAN. Oliver - - Mr. DE CAMp. Philip - Mr. LISTON. Thomas - Mr. TAYLOR, Vincent - Mr. MATHEWS. • ' Celestine Mrs. TAYLOR. Pauline r - Mrs. LITTON. Alice - Mrs. gIBbS, The scene lies in one of the German States. 1 THe principal interest arises- from the imprison- ment of. Count Everard, ,0n a charge of treason ( originating in private hostility on the part of. the Minister), and the devices employed by his daugh- ter, Celestine, for his escape. The latter obtains admittance into the prison,_ which is a fortress on the Danube, in the disguise of a Savoyard. Af- ter various expedients, she. contrives to pass a disguise through the grating of her father's cell; ' and, while Philip, the Commander of the Guard, and an old campaigner, is engaged in telling a story of his exploits, in which he discloses the circumstance of being blind of one eye, Celestine passes with her father, 0n his blind side, and effects his escape, the key having been'inadvertently left in the door of his cell. . Several other interesting situations occur, after the escape of Everard, who surrenders himself up again, in order to , rescue Oliver, a brave young officer, who is su- spected of having assisted in his escape. A dispatch at length arrives from the Prince, imparting his discovery of the unjust charges against the Count, with an order for his releale. The situations of this piece are much of the same cast with those of The Escapes, The Prisoner, Tekeli, The Young Hussar, and other entertain- ments, fur which we have been indebted to the French stage. The music, by Mr. Hook, sen. has both variety and simplicity. There was a pretty duet between Mr. Taylor and Mrs. Liston; and a humorous song by Mr. Mathews was encored. The Actors performed their parts remarkably well for a first night. The character allotted to Young was much indebted to the colouring he gave it, though it was not calculated to call forth all the powers of that Actor.— The House was exceedingly crowded, and the Piece was given out for representation to- night with general ap- probation. .
