AllNTrtAt. TY- OFFICE, FEU. 16. Admiral Rerlie lias transmitted a letter from Capt. Pati rson, of the stoop Hesner, giving an account of • the capture, on the 15th of November, of the Mom- lie Frent ii national schoorter, bound to the Isle of Fiance with dispatches, bv tiie Hesper's cutter. She was f. irr ed bv boarding, in which Lieut. Nixon and two seamen were w united; and on the side • f the enemy two killed and five wonnded, including amongst the latter the officer commanding ' he sclteoncr. f A letter from Capt. Borirchier, of the Hawkc, anhonnces the capture of Le Furet, French privateer, of'lfi'giras and 86 men, on the ithinst.] Tile Abmv.— Saturday's London Gazette contains the greatest number of promotions of Field'Officers, Captains, aid Subalterns, we ever remember; some of them by purchase, others without purchase or by exchang .

Mackenzie, Fori light infantry Volunteers -, with several others iu the German ligion, & c. The Majors consist of Captains next in seniority, except in a few instances of exchange or purchase.— N. K. In this list we notice SOdfoot, Capt. Lord Burghersh, from the 3d dragoon guards, to be Maior, by purchase: this voutig nobleman, son of the Earl of Westmoreland, was prematurely prompted to a majority two yeais ago, contrary to the regulations of the army. ^ ^| A mail from Lisbon arrived on Thursday. No change whatever had taken place in the head- quarters of the hostile armies, nor had any movement of im- portance been lately observed iu any other direction. Junot, who was wounded in a recent affair ofskir- inisliing, it seems is still alive, and issaid to have set off for France. The Spanish papers contain accounts of" formidable insurrections having taken place ill the south of France, attended with much bloodshed— a circumstance which, if correctly stated, must be deem- ed of very great importance. An article from Vienna, of the 18th ult. states in positive terms the fact of peace being concluded be- tween the Emperor of Russia and the Ottoman Porte. The particulars are nbt mentioned, except that by the principal article of the treaty the provinces of Mol- davia and Wallachia arc ceded to Russia. Letters from the same place, of the 19th, state that the do- mains ot Austria in the Illvrian provinces have been placed under sequestration, in reprisal for the indul- gence which the merchants of Vienna have received; in consequence of which considerable activity was • observed in the Austrian Cabinet. If these facts be eorrectly stated, events of considerable importance may not unreasonably be expected to result from them. Letters from the French coast to the 16th, and from Paris to tbe 13tli inst. have reached town. We learn from the former that the embargo would be con- tinued nntil the fate of the Hamburgh and Bremen vessels detained iu this country was ascertained. So strictly was this measure enforced, that hardly a fish- ing- boat was allowed to put to sea. Advices have been received from the Baltic, to the 6th inst. The letters from Stockholm notice the ar- rival of a courier in that capital from Paris, with a peremptory order for the return of all the officers in the suite of the Crown Prince. The Swedes are ap- prehensive, from the nature of this mandate, that Bcrnadotte has incurred tbe displeasure ofthe French ruler. ..... The Austrian Government have relaxed in their n- ronr against colonial produce. The Directors of tbe Cu tonis at Vienna have notified that 2000 cwts. of coffee, which had accumulated in their warehouses, would be sold according to samples, at 7, 8, and 9 florins per lb. to individuals for private use, A simi- lar notification was expected in regard to sugar. Letters from Germany, of a late date, mention that the constant rcfnsal of the Emperor of Austria to co- operate in the continental system, has produced an evident coolness between the Courts of Vienna and 1 Ely a smuggling vessel which has recently left the French coast, we learn that the embargo is still con- tinued in the French ports. The parket from the Brazils brings letters to the 16th of December, which do not communicate any intelligence of importance. Admiral De Courcy had returned 10 Rio Janeiro, having settled every thing amicably with Hie Spaniards relative to affairs in the River Plate. The Portuguese Minister Arajo, who accompanied the Prince Regent to tbe Brazils, died in November last. We are extremely concerned to annonnce, that the Duke of Albuquerque labours at this moment under a mental derangement of the most violent kind, but we trust it is only a temporary deprivation of reason. There was no man in Spain who bad rendered a more important service to his country. Had it not Urn for his penetration, decision, and activity, Cadiz vould have long since been in the possession of the French. The Difke is at present confined in a pri- vate honse for the reception of persons in his unhappy situation. The body of the Marquis de Romana lias been cpencil bv Surgeon Rose of the guards, and his death f, mid to have been occasioned by an aneurism of the heart, and the bursting of a large btood- vesvel. Hamburgh letters state that many counting- houses of the principal merchants ate shut up, money ex- tainely scarce, and trade in a condition of total stag- lUlion. It is sarcastically observed, tltat the pater- nal solicitude of Napoleon inclines him to relieve his a.- w subject* from the vitissilnJvs and anxieties cf « Jiioiereial spct uiatidu. The most strenuous exertions are making to orga- nize the Spanish soldiers under British officers. Ckils. Whittingham, Carroll, Roche, and Lord M'Dnff, who have so long ailed with the Spaniards, and pos- sess their confidence, are all appoiuted General Offi- cers, and will, most probably, command armies or divisions of the grand army. It is likewise said that Cols. Campbell, AshWorth, Doyle, and M'Mihon, will be transferred from the Portuguese to the Spa- nish army, with a step Of promotion to each, so that their vacancies in the Portuguese service w ill be filled up from the British army with officers conversant in the Spanish language. The Russians are said, in letter* from Bagdad, to have been defeated lately by a Persian corps, on the banks of the Euphrates, while meditating an attack on Enzeriun, and obliged to retreat with loss, and great disorder. The Prussian General Lestoq was tried at Berlin in December last, and sentenced to five years con- finement ill the prison of Magdcbtirgh, for having forged bills to a great amount on the Jewish louse ot Schleliugei. Letters by the Fairlie East Indiaman, from Bengal arrived at Portsmouth, state, that it was the inten- tion of Lord Minto to return to England in a short time, and that his Lordship would take his passage in the Modcste. Sir G. H. linrlow was named as his provisional successor in the Government. The pirates who so long infested the southwest parts of the coast of China, have at length surrendered them- selves to the Government of the province of Canton. A general amnesty was granted to the pirates by the Viceroy; and upon their surrender they were receiv- ed with marks of favour and honour, and taken into the employ of Government. The breaking up of this piratical band is a very favourable event to the Chi- nese coasting trade. An American vessel was, in July last, boarded and cutout by the Ladrones, while lying in the offing be- low Canton. The crew made a gallant but ineffectual resistance; and tbe pirates, after plundering the ves- sel, offered to surrender their prisoners for 5000 dol- lars. The Jesuit Missionaries, who were confined in Pckin, on suspicion of treasonable practices, have tieen set at liberty by the Chinese Government, aud ordered to quit the country, on pain of death. Our readers will feel equally gratified with our- selves on being informed that the crew of the Cum- berland, who so gallantly beat off four French priva- teers, as stated in a former paper, ( besides receiving protection from the impress service) have been hand- somely rewarded by the underwriters and owners of the ship, nnd were on Friday paid, at Messrs. Chris- topher, Idle, Crooke, and Co.' s counting- house, in Prince's- street, London, the following rewards, viz. — the Captain, 1001. First Mate, 601. Second Mate, 401. Seamen, 201. each, Boys, 151. each, and 501. to the mother of the apprentice that was killed in the action. Some further acconnts of the capture ofBanda have arrived. A letter of the 10th of October, after stating the surrender of the island, says :—" Tims fell Randa and its dependencies ; the last, the richest, and the most important of all the Dutch settlements among the Molucca Islands. It is impossible as yet to ascertain the value of the property captured,— it is estimated at about 800,0001.— but we may surely expect 600,0001." Admiral Bertie and Commodore J. Rowley, it is moderately calculated, vvill not derive less from the capture of the Isle of France than 200,0001. sterling each, and the inferior officers in proportion. The taking of the Isle of France w ill release the India Company from the dangers to which their com- merce has been so long and ruinously exposed in the Indian seas. The enemy's cruisers from that island have not wrested from them in prizes less than five millions sterling of property since the short lived Peace of Amiens. The six French frigates gone out with troops for the reinforcement of the Isle of France w ill in all proba- bility fall into our hands, as Admiral Bertie had time- ly information of their sailing, and the object of their destination. • It is somewhat singular, that in General Aber- cromliy's sensible and well writen letter to Lord Minto, no notice whatever should have been taken of the number of French troops that capitulated, or of flic population of the captured island. The Hon. Major- General Abercroinby, who com- manded the land forces at the taking of the Isle of France, is the sccond son of the ever- to- be- lamented Sir Ralph Abcrcromby, who fell in Egypt. Commodore J. Rowley, the successful naval coad- jutor of Admiral Bertie in the capture of the Isle of France, is to be honoured by a matrimonial union with Miss Bertie, the beautiful daughter of his Com- mander. The produce of cotton in the Isle of France is so great, and of so superior a quality, that our principal manufacturers calculate upon the highest advantages to be derived from this new source of commercial wealth. Extract from a letter, dated in November, from the Cape of Good Hope :—" The infamous Hamclin, who commanded at Tappanooly, is caught at last, by Commodore Rowley; he is going to Moi laix in a car- tel, and is now at anchor here, storming at a gieat rate, because we will not let him or his officers come onshore. One of them, Chevette, kicked poor Cor- bett's corpse, after taking possession of the Africaine; and the same man, and another named Mendor, kick- ed and beat, with an iron ramrod, Lieut. Tnllidge, of the Africaine, who was wounded in both arms and in the groin, and forced him, or rather threw him into the boat alongside. These facts arc attested ou oath by the persons present." Oil the death of Catharine, Empress of Russia, it was enjoined by her successor, that the four first classes of people should furnish their servants with sable, that every coach should be covered with black, and that the horses, without distinction of colour, should be provided with black tails! Mr. Bingham, the clergyman, charged with being the author of an incendiary letter addressed to Mr. R. Jemier, Marcsfield, and w ith arson, underwent a final examination in the prison at Lewes, and was fully committed tor trial on both charges at the next assize*. At this examination, the prisoner's two bro- thers, one a Minister, and an acting Magistrate, and the other a Post Captain in the Navy, wire present. BIGAMY AND POLYGAMY.— At the late Leicester Sessions, a man Was sentenced to be transported - for seven years, for having two wives, and, at the same time, his wife was sentenced to be imprisoned twelve mouths, for having two hhsbayds. But these arc out- done liy another man, at the last Kent Sessions, who was sentenced to be imprisoned tw o ycafs, for having fhree wivc&. The Duke of Qtiecnsberry's library, which he be- queathed to Mr. Douglas, appears at first sight a very fine one; but, on examination, It has been found that scarcely one set of volumes is perfect through the whole, some familiar friends of his Grace having purloined or borrowed numberless volumes, which they forgot to return! The amount of the subscriptions in aid of the fund for the relief of the sufferers by the late high tide along the coast in the neighbourhood ot Boston, has at length become so considerable, as to warrant the be- lief that very substantial assistance will be afforded to the mo t necessitous of those sufferers; who will, by this means, be rescued from total ruin and absolute want. Aud as considerable expectations are enter- tained of some further liberal contributions, the amount is likely to exceed the most sanguine hopes of tlie very zealous promoters of this charitable under- taking,— upwards of 26801. have been subscribed. An old woman was scalded to death at a public- house in Chelsea, on Thursday, by au inhuman wretch pouring a kettle of boiling water down her back while intoxicated. The villain escaped. Co VENT GARDEN THEATRE.—. After the comedy of Every Man in his Humour, the entertainment of Blue Beard was revived, last night. The decora- tions were splendid, and the battle has more bustle, noise, and varit ty in it, than we ever before witnessed. DuBtm, FF. b. 14.— The proceedings at the Spe- cial Commission were resinned on Saturday iu the County Court at Waterford, when Lord Norbitry and the Lord Chief Baron both sat upon the Bench. The following is a correct list ofthe trials and convictions: — P. Blake, J. Cnnolly, T. Brien, P. Baker, J. But- lcr, T. Maliony, and J. Dooley, for burglary and fe- lony in the house of Edmund Flaliavon, assaulting his habitation, forcibly taking arms, attempting to com- pel him to quit his farm, and attempting to discharge a pistol ; guilty; to be hanged the 16th of February, al Ballydtiff Hill. T. Dower, for felony and robbery of arms, confessed guilty; to be hanged on the 9th of March. M. Ouan, J. Brown, T. Phelau, and J. Wht'lau. for felony, burglary, and robbery of arms; guilty; M. Quan to be hanged on Carrick Bridge on Saturday, the 23d of February— Brown and Wlielan to be hanged on tlie 9th of March.— The two last pleaded guilty.— Tile business of the commission may be regarded as having closed, the Counsel for the Crown, from motives of humanity, and in the hope that the awful examples exhibited will be sufficient to restore peace to the county, have declined for the present to carry the pi- osecutions any farther. Camp equipage has been delivered out to the troops, and every preparation made for taking the field, if it should prove necessary.— It is reported, we know not upon what authority, that the Habeas Corpus Act is to be suspended in Ireland. CORRESPONDENCE Between the Prince Regent and Mr. Perceval. The following are Copies of the Letters that passed between tbe Prince Regent and Mr. Perceval, on the annunciation of his Royal Highness's determination to retain the present Ministers in hi- service. Carlton- House, Feb. 4, lflL!. The Prince of Wales considers the moment to he arrived, which calls for his decision with respect to the persons to he employed by him in the administra- tion of the Executive Government of the Country, according to the Powers vested i « him by the Hill passed by the two Houses of Parliament, and noiv on tbe point of receiving the sanction of the Great Seal. Tlie Prince feels it incumbent upon him, at this pre- cise juncture, to communicate to Mr. Perceval his in- tention not to remove from their stations those whom he finds there, as his Majesty's official servants. At the same time the Prince ones it to ihe truth aud sincerity of character, which, he trusts, will appear in every action of bis life, iu whatever situation placed, explicitly to declare, that the irresistible impulse of filial duty and affection to his beloved and afflicted Father, leads him to dread that any act of the KOgent might., in the smallest degree, have the effect of inter- fering with the progress of his Sovereign's recovery. This consideration ALONE dictates the decision now communicated to Mr. Perceval. Having thus performed an act of indispensible duty, from a just sense of what is due to his own consistency and honour, the Prince has only to add, that, among the many blessings to be derived from his Majesty's restoration to health, and to the persona! exercise of his Royal Functions, it will not, in the Prince's esti- mation, be the least, that that most fortunate event will at once rescue him from a situation of unexampled embarrassment, dnd put an end to a state of affairs, ill calculated, he fears, to sustain the interests of the United Kingdom, in this aivful and perilous crisis, and most difficult to be reconciled to the genuine principles ofthe British Constitution. MR. PERCEVAL'S ANSWER. Ho: vning- street, Feb. 5, 1811. Air. Perceval presents his humble duty lo your Roy- al Highness, and has the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your Royal Highness's letter of last night, which reached him this morning.— Mr. Perceval feels it Ills duty to express his humble thanks to your Royal Highness for the frankness with which your Royal Highness has condescended, explicitly, to communi- cate the motives which have induced your Royal Highness to honour his colleagues and him with your commands for the continuance of their services, in the stations entrusted to them bv the King. And Mr. Perceval begs leave to assure your Royal Highness, that, in the expression of your Royal Highness's sen- timents of filial and loyal attachment to the King, and of anxiety for the speedy restoration of his Majesty's health, Mr. Perceval can see nothing but additional motives for their most anxious exertions to give satis- faction to your Royal Highness, in the only manner in which it can be given, by endeavouring to promote your Royal Highness's views, for the security and happiness of the country. Mr. Perceval has never failed to regret Ihe impres- sion of your Royal Highness, with regard to the pro- visions of the Regency Bill, which his Majesty's ser- vants felt it to be their duty to recommend to Parlia- ment. Hut, he ventures to submit to your Royal High- ness, that, whatever difficulties the present awful cri- sis of the country and the world may create iu the ad- ministration of the Executive Government, yonrRoy- al Highness will not find them in any degree increased by the temporary suspension of the exercise of those branches of the Rovai Prerogatives, w hich has been introduced by Parliament, in conformity to what was intended on a farmer similar occasion ; and that what- ever Ministers your Royal Highness might think pro per to employ, would find in that, lull support and countenance which, as long as they were honoured with your Royal Highness's comuiuiids, they would feel confident they would continue to miiov, aniple and sufficient means to enable your Royal Highness effectually to maintain the great aod important in- terests- of the United Kingdom,— And Mr. Perceval numbly trusts, that, whatever doubts your Itoyal Highness may entertain with respect to the Constitu- tional propriety of the measures which have In en adopted, your Royal Highness will feel assured, that they could not have been recommended by his Majes- Iv's servants,- nor sanctioned by Parliament, but upon the sincere, though possibly erroneous, conviction, that they iu no degree trenched upon the ll- ue princi- ples and spirit ofthe Constitution.— Mr. Perceval feels it his dutv to add, that be buhls hiuiKe'f in readiness, at any moment, to wait upon your Royal Highness and to receive any commands ivitti w Inch your Royal Highness ma/ be graciously pleased to honour h'im.

SIR, I have the honour and happiness of acquaint- ing v- on with ' lie capture of Bauda Neira, the chief of the spii- e islands, on the 9' h of August, by a por- tion of the force under my orders, in consequence of a night attack, which completely surprised the ene- my. although the approach of the ships had been un- avoidably discovered tiie day before. The weather proved so unfavourable for boat ser- vice on the night of the 8th instant, that although nearly 400 officers and men had been selected for this occasion, yet, 011 assembling under Great Banda, at tw o in tin follow ing morning, I found that the state of the w eaiher w ould deprive us of the services of some valuable jncii, under Lieutenant Stephens, of the royal marines, and the greater part of the detachment of the Madras European regiment, and from whom I had expected the most steady support and assistance. The attempt was now to be made with less than £ 00 men, consisting of the seamen and marines, anil about forty of the Madras European regiment ; or our labours in the boat., through a dark and squally night, in the open sea, must end in the severest mor- tification. After netting under the shelter of the land, the cir- cumstances of thevweather, which before operated aaainst us, were now favourable to us, and tlieconfi dcnce I had . iu the handful of officers and men about rue, lift ine 110 hesitation ; and with a degree of si- lenee and firmness that will ever command my heart- felt acknowledgments, the boats proceeded to the point of debarkation. A dark cloud, with rain, co- ven 1! our landing within a hundred yards of a battery of 10 guns, where, by the promptitude and activity of Captain Ken ah and Lieutenant Carcw, who was ordered with the pikemen to the attack, the battery was taken in the rear, and an officer and his guard made prisoners without a musket being fired, although tin enemy were at their guns with matches lighted. From the near approach of day- light « ur situation became critical, but we had procured a native guide to carry us to the walls ofthe Castle of Belgiea; and after leaving a guard over the prisoners, and in charge of the battery, the party mado a rapid movement round the skirts ot the town, where flic sound of the btiL'le was spreading alarm amongst the . enemy. IL tw 1 ntv minutes the scaling- ladders were placed against the walls of the outer pentagon ofBelgica; and the first muskets fired were bv the enemy's sentriesi The gallantry and activity with which the scaling ladders were hauled up after the outwork was carried, and placed for die attack of the inner- work, under asharp fire from the garrison, exceed all praise. Thecnemy afti r firing three guns, and keeping up an ineffectual di charge of musketry, for 10 or 15 minutes, tied in all directions, and through the gateway, leaving tin Cob- Commandant and ten others dead, aud tw o officers and 30 prisoner in our hands. Captajn Kenali, Lieutenants Carcw. Allen, Pratt, Walker, and Lyons, of the navy ; Lieutenant Yeates and Ensign Allen ( a volunteer) of the Madras service were amongst the foremost in the escalade ; and my thanks are due to Captain- Lieutenant Nixon, of the Madras European regiment, forihesteady and officer • like conduct with which he directed tbe covering par ( ty entrusted to his charge, ana Lieutenants Blown aud Deker of that regiment, attached to the marines With such examples, our brave fellows swept the ramparts like a whirlwind; and in addition to the pro videutial circumstance of the service being performed with scarcely a hurt or wound, I have the satisfactioi 6f reporting, that there was no instance of irregularity arising from success. The day now beaming 011 the British flag, discover- ed to lis the fort of Nassau and the sea- defence our feet, and the enemy at their guns at the different posts. I dispatched Captain Kenah with a flag of truce to the Governor, requiring the immediate sur- render of Nassau, and with a promise of protection for private property. At sun- rise the Dutch flag was hoisted in Nassau, and the sea- batteries opened a fire on the Caroline ( followed by the Picdmotaisc and Ba- laeouta), then approaching the harbour. Having se- lected a detachment to sccure Belgica, the remainder with their scaling- ladders were ordered for the imme- diate storm of Nassau; but Captain Kenah had return- ed with the verbal submission of the Governor, and I was induced tosend a second flag, stating my determi- nation to storm Nassau that instant, and to lay the town in ashes, if the colours were not immediately struck. This threat, and a well- placed shot from Bel- gica ( which completely commands all the principal defences) into one of their sea- batteries, produced ah immediate and unqualified submission ; and we found ourselves in possession of the two forts and several batteries, mounting 120 piedes of cannon, and defend- ed by nearly 700 disciplined troops, and the militia. The ships had been left with so few men to manage them, thatlmeiely directed Captain Foote to lead into any anchorage that he might be able to maintain, to make a diversion in our favour; but they were worked against all the unfavourable circumstances of a dark and squally night, in a narrow channel, with the most determined perseverance, and with that de- gree of zeal that I expected from an officer of my own rank, whose heart and hand had always been with me on every point of public service. Captain Kenah, who led the storming party, crown- ed a series of valuable services during two months'dif- ficult and intricate navigation through the Eastern seas, by his bravery and activity on shore, Tlie colours of forts Nassau and Belgica will be presented to your Excellency by Lieutenant Johu Gilmour, who has served nine years iu this country as a Lieutenant, and a large portion of that time as First Lieutenant under my command. Although labouring under severe illness, he took charge of the ship on my quitting her; and his seamanlike and zealous conduct in the discharge of his trust were most conspicuous. I beg leave most earnestly to recommend him to your notice. I also transmit a plan of the defences of Banda Neira, with the position of the Dutch troops, and our route from the landing- place to Belgica. The enemy had advanced a strong corps towards the place where Admiral Rainier's forces had formerly landed : and a suspicion that this would be the case, and that the roads would be destroyed, determined me as to the point and method of our attack. The service performed was of such a peculiar na- ture, that I could not do justice to the merits of my companions without entering much into detail; and I feci confident, that in your Excellency's disposi- tion to appreciate duly the merits of those under your command, I shall find an excuse for having taken up so much of your lime— I am. Sir, with great respect, yonr very obedient Servant, ( Signed) CHRISTOPHER COLE. To his Excellency IVilliam O'Brien Drury, Esq. Rear- Admiral vf the Red, Commander in Chief, tre. The cause of postponing the Prince's Levee, is said to be, that owing to tiie immense number of public papers yet to sign, his Royal Highness is apprehensive, that the loss of a single day ( which would inevitably he the case) might occasion great f3. cwavcniciice to public business. French papers to the Kith inst. have been received town. They contain a report of the situation of the French army in. Potential ou the 20th o/. laiiuaty. As we have advices from the British aatny of a fort- iglif date later, this arfide loses much of its interest. Wcording to the French , account their army has undergone no . privations; they have but. few sick, ^ not above 1200; and there has not been a single de- serter. The positions of the Allies are acknowledged fo be strong, both by art and nature; but it is assert- ed that the population of Lisbon are a prey to the most dreadful scarcity : that tiie Portuguese are dis- contented iu the extreme; and that the situation of the English becomes more critical every day. The wound. received by Jimot i, s mentioned. He is stated to have received a ninskct ball in the neck while re- connoitering, but 110 ill ( tenscquences were appre- hended from it. General Stew art is immediately to return to Lisbon. It. is certain that the French Officer llcgnicr was in the camp of Lord Wellington, and immediately after the interview took place General Stewart left the Tagus, bearing confidential dispatches. What they contain, aud what is the official communication in answer to them, we cannot pretend to know, but from the rank of the messenger employed, we may presume that the subject is of great importance. The Lisbon transports were stopped sailing from Plymouth 011 Monday last by telegraphic signal. Wc are ignorant of the cause. It is feared that of the four cartels that lately sailed from Plymouth for Morlaix, three have foundered in the late gales. One only had reached Morlaix. She carried over the account of the capture of the Isle of France, which tbe people of Morlaix would not be- lieve. The Moniteur of the 10th instant contains au acri- monious attack upon the commerce of England, and, above all. upon the liberty of the press, which all tyrants instinctively hate. A decree, dated the 3d, directs 80,000 conscripts, out of the 120,000 of 1811, to be called into service. A mail from Anholt arrived this morning. We have selected the following article from the papers brought by it.—" OTUANTO, JAN. 3.— M. Barraiilt, Captain of the 1st Neapolitan regiment of light horse, arrived yesterday from Corfou, as bearer of the dis- patches from his Excellency General Donzelot, Go- vernor- General of the Ionian Islands, for his Majesty the King of the two Sicilies. This officer reports, that the Isle of Ftiuo has been occupied since the 8th December by a French garrison, as well as those of Mirlair and Samadroche, and that the English cniiz- ers are 110 longer able to keep the sea 011 those coasts. Three swift- sailing vessels with money on hoard, and 14 transports laden w ith provisions and troops, sailed 011 the 24th Dec. from Otranto for Corfon, and ar- rived there. M. Barrault adds, that he left the Island in the most brilliant situation." It is reported 011 the authority of letters by a vessel which sailed from Heligoland since the packet left, 011 the 14th January, that Alexander has formally declared war against Napoleon. We do not believe this assertion, but we can state it as a positive fact, that a Russian General lias been arrested and thrown into prison by the Czarina Government, 011 a charge of having traitcronsly declared to Caiilincourt, the French Minister, the strength, positions, and re- sources, of tlie Russian military force. Our readers will recollect an account, purporting to be official, which appeared in the papers a few- weeks ago, of a revolt among the Janissaries at Con- stantinople, which was not suppressed without the carnage of some thousands of that body.— There is not, it seems, the least foundation for this story. Letters of the 7th of December have been received from the Turkish metropolis, which, so far from containing any allusion to such an event, mention that the most perfect tranquillity prevailed at that time, and for several weeks before, in that city. The article is supposed to be a French fabrication, for the purpose of inducing the Russians to continue the war with the Porte, the Court of St. Petersbnrgli having about that time manifested a strong inclination to negociatc. The following is ail extract of a letter, dated ' Wind- sor, Feb. 17 : - " Yesterday his Majesty, accompani- ed by the Duke of York, again walked on the Ter- race for near an hour. The Physicians were in at- tendance as usual. Afterwards, their Royal High- nesses the Dukes of York, Kent, Cumberland, and Cambridge, dined with her Majesty aud the Prin- cesses. Those Royal Dukes w ho have been visitors at the Castle in the course of the week, have been gratified with alternate audiences of Ids Majesty, and uost affectionately received. This morning Mr. Perceval arrived at the Queen's Lodge, and went from thence to the Castle, where he was received by the Duke of York, and both were introduced to his Majesty, with whom they had a conference for more than an hour. After Mr. Perceval had retired, his Majesty took his dinner, and soon after two o'clock, walked on the Terrace in the company of the Dnkes of York and Cambridge, for near an hour. The Royal Dukes very kindly were the occasional sup- porters ot their Royal Father, who conversed with them very cheerfully, and appeared improving in health and spirits. A most material change for the better has taken place in his Majesty's system, within the last twenty- four hours. The medical attendants are in high spirits, and every day gives the most en- livening hopes of speedy recovery. It is expected that his Majesty, with the Queen and Princesses, will visit Weymouth in the ensuing spring. The month of May has been named as the time for their departure." The measure of enforcing the Convention Act in Ireland against the Roman Catholic meetings, re- sorted to by the Government of that country, was adverted to on Monday night in the House of Lords by the Earl of Moira, and in the House of Commons by Mr. Ponsonby ; and in both it was distinctly de- clared by Ministers that they were totally ignorant of the proceeding until Thursday last, and that the Regent was first made acquainted w ith it on Friday. — In the House of Peers, Lord Redesdale presented three Bills relative to debtors. The first is, to enlarge the sum for which persons could be arrested ; tlie second, to establish a permament provision for the relief of insolvent debtors ; and the third, to provide for the recovery of small debts upon the constitutional principle of legal practice, namely, the intervention of a jury. Read a first time.— The Earl of Liver- pool presented a petition from Fitzharding Berkeley ( late Lord Dursley), respecting his claims to the Peerage of Berkeley, which had been presented to the Prince Regent, and referred to the House of Lords. It. was ordered to lie 011 the tabic.— We un- derstand itis to be considered on Tuesday week. In the House of Commons oil Tuesday, after a rou- tine of business relating chiefly to private bills, and some matters of minor importance, Mr. Ward said that he had given notice of a motion for certain pa- pers regarding Ireland, and he had understood that they would not be objected to : he should now move therefore for the copy of the circular to the Sheriff's, regarding the Convention Bill, and the letter of the Secretary of the Catholic Committee. Mr. Perceval answered that he had no objection to assent to the motion for the production of these two papers. Mr. Ward postponed his notice for other documents. Mr. Tierney asked whether he was to understand th. it the Government of England had not in their possession any further documents 011 this important subject, 01' that they were of a nature such as not to allow of their communication. Mr. Perceval replied that there certainly were other documents from the Irish Go- vernment, which if the House so decided, would be laid 011 the table, but he could not avoid expressing his opinion, that they were ol'a kind to render them unfit for production. Yesterday the Prince Regent gave audience for two bom's to Mr. Perceval. Mr. Foster, appointed . Minister to the United States, is nephew to the Dutchess of Devonshire, and was Secretary to the American Legation. One of the- grounds of complaint against this country by America has thus been removed, and Mr. Pi'nckney will of course remain here. The Duke of York is getting very corpulent; to prevent which he has been advised to take strong ex- ercise iu walking; and when his Royal Highness is in town, lie walks round St. James's Park every morning. .... We understand that the; Duke of Norfolk has puI'- ll ase'd of the Marquis of Hertford, his property 111 Horsham. The electioneering struggle in that bo- rough will of course be put to rest between tile two parties. The great stone theatre 111 the Russian capital, more capacious than the late Drury- ktne theatre, has been lately burnt to the ground. Mr. Raikes, well known in the commercial world, died in that city in his 82d jear. Several Swedes, resident at Berlin, were lately summoned by the Ambassador of the former nation, | to take the oaths of allegiance, and recognise the I succession to the Crown: after many delays, they at j length refused. The Ambassador, ill consequence, j applied to Frederick William to banish them Ilis ter- I ritorics; but the King declined compliance. The Earl Camden, Captain Sampson, was burnt at Bombay 011 the night of the 22d July; the fire broke out in the gun- room, and raged with such violence that every endeavour to extinguish it proved ineffec- tual, and even an attempt to scuttle her was iu vain. The crew'was obliged to quit her, and she drifted up the harbour, presenting a magnificieut spectacle of a floating mass of fire. Fortunately she was the inner- most ship, and to leeward of all the rest. No lives were lost. She was of 1200 tons, and about half- laden, for China. There was a meeting at Hertford 011 Saturday last, when, 011 the motion of Mr. Hale, jtm. it was agreed to petition tlu.' House of Commons in favour of re- form. Mr. Brand and Sir John Scabright spoke on the occasion. The following passage in the speech of the latter gentleman was much applauded :—" He was a frieud to a mild, ' temperate, and well- timed reform; but he was the determined enemy of those wild, fantastic, impracticable speculations, introduc- ed by weak theorists or wicked men—( Lond applause) — men who would destroy what they never could improve, and pull down the Constitution under the pretence of reparing it."—( Lond cheers.) His Royal Highness the Prince Regent has been graciously pleased to grant a respite, during pleasure, to Peter Ogilvie, novV under sentence of death in the Tolbooth, Glasgow. This morning was executed in front of Newgate, G. Towers, for robbing his former master, Mr. Bry- ant, au old gentleman, in Manchester- street, accom- panied by circumstances of cruelty; and A. Cane, for repeatedly extorting money from a gentleman, on a threat of charging him with an unnatural offence. The Pantheon, in Oxford street, has been very judiciously converted into a national institution for exhibiting the improvements in the manufactures of the united kingdom, and in the arts connected therewith; for promoting the general interests of commerce, both foreign and domestic ; and for aid- ing the prosperity of every class of manufactures. It will present at once, ( arranged in a regular and connected series,) all that Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Nottingham, Coventry, Norwich, Glasgow, as well as the sister kingdom, and all other manufacturing places, supply ; and will pre- serve a register of every manufacturer in the united kingdom, whereby such of them as become subscri- bers to the institution, will open new means of pro- moting their interests in a variety of ways, and to a great extent. A spacious chamber is exclusively appropriated to the resort and accommodation ofsub- scribers; and the daily and country papers are to be taken in and filed for their accommodation. And for the peculiar ase of patrons of the institution, a spacious chamber flf association i « prepared, and fitted up for their exclusive reception aud resort at all times, provided w ith a copious supply of books of reference, an extensive assortment of publications, foreign and domestic; together with all foriegn gazettes and newspapers that ran be procured from every quarter of the world. The intelligent part of the metropolis, and country visitors, have long lan- guishe'l for such an establishment, and we cordially wish it success. At liic commencement ofthe new year, the land- holders and principal inhabitants of Mclksham ent red into a' subscription, which amounted to 1861. and from which they have been enabled to supply every week 620 poor families with coals and soup. The last last year's old duty 011 hops is stated to be 73,5141. < K Hid. Twelve prisoners, confined in the borough goal in Liverpool, effected their escape a few days ago, in the following manner:— when the turnkey came to lock them up at night, one ofthein knocked hini down, and stood over liini with a pistol till the rest escaped. He then followed ilis companions, threatening the turnkey with instant death if he attempted to pursue him. Oil Mtmday night, the warehouse belonging to Messrs. Mole and Locket, carriers, of Hereford, was broken into, and between 30 and 40 gallons of spirits stolen from it.' By the active and judicious exertions of Mr. Owen; police officer, the whole was found, next day, in the possession of R. Powell, of Putson, who was apprehended ; and ill the course of the day Jolin Bailey, John Bevan, and Thomas Edwards, were also apprehended, 011 suspicion of being accom- plices. The whole have been committed for trial. LOSS OF THE AMETHYST. PLYMOUTH, FEB. 16. - Last night it blew a very heavy gale of wind from the W. 8. W, inwhich his Ma- jesty's frigate Amethyst, of 36 guns, commanded by- Captain Walton, drove from her anchorage iu the Sound, and about one o'clock ran on a reef of roeks near Mount Batten Bay, near the place were the Pal- las frigate was also wrecked some years since; the night was extremely dark, and in consequence lights were hung out from all parts of the ship, and guns were fired from her as signals of distress ; soon after striking it was. deemed expedient to cut away l. er masts, which prevented her from falling over; but shortly after, from the damage sustained in her bottom she was found to he filling fast, and in tconseqiience some of her ctfew took tc the boats, and w ere making for the shore, but were soon overwhelmed by a heavy sea then running into the Bay, and it is feared the greater part of them must have perished, as six boats were discovered wrecks 011 the shore at daylight; a boat from one of the men of war in the sound was pro- ceeding to the relief of the crew , but, melancholy to relate, was overset 011 hearing the ship, and ai. hands perished, consisting of an'officer ( supposed to be a midshipman) and 16 men ; two other boats, fro;; outward- bound transports lying in Cutwater, were also proceeding to the relief of the distressed, and it is feared were upset, and their crews perished, as they have not since been heard of; the Ami thyst w as rul- ing at single anchor, ready to start 111 the squadron off Brest; Three , of the bodies of the unfortunati sufferers have been washed ashore. The gnns that were fired from her, as signals df distress, unfortunate- ly . were plotted, which prevtnted the timely a'dist- ance, that would . otlierw ise have been rendeied. It is feared the Amethyst will become a complete wreck, as she is now lull of water, and 110 possibility of got- ing her otf. P. S.

THE following are tiie bulletins issued from Wind- sor Castle, of bis- Majesty's health, since our last Feb. 15 There is little difference in His Ma- jesty's state since yesterday. Feb. 16.— His Majesty continues still in the same State. Feb. 17.— His Majesty's progress is gradual and satisfactory. Feb. 18.—- His Majesty continues much the same. Feb. 19.— His Majesty proceeds favourably in his recovery. Feh. 20. — His Majesty is going on very favourably, although his indisposition admits of little variation from day to day. Feb. 21.— His Majesty's progress confirms our ex- pectations ofhis recovery. A foreign schooner has arrived with dispatches from the Baltic ; and we have reason to believe, that a disposition is manifested, by the northern powers, favourable to the interests of this country. A levy is ordered in Russia of 100,000 men. Bernadotte, we are told, has declared, that he will neither, from French influence, injure the trade, nor obstruct the prosperity of the nation by which he has been adopted. It is certain that neither letters of marque, or re- prisal, lave yet been issued in pursuance of the de- claration of w ar against Great Britain. Another power in the Baltic, after a persever- ing system of determined hostility, has shewn a tem- per that may be deemed conciliatory to us. A de- cree from Copenhagen is in town, which states, among other arrangements, that ships with English licences, shall not, on account of being provided with such licences, be liable to confiscation. In consequence of this edict a great number of vessels which were detained in the ports of that kingdom will, it is understood, be immediately set at liberty. An Anholt mail has brought a confirmation of the report ot General Marmont having placed all the pro- perty of Austriaus, in the Illyrian Provinces, under sequestration. The Prince Regent is considerably better of a lamenes, occasioned by a tread on the foot from one ef liis chargers. Sir David Dundas now holds public days on Tues- days and Fridays, and will continue to do so during the sitting of Parliament. A considerable number of flat- bottomed boats has been carried out by the squadron under Sir Joseph Yorke. These may be iutended for the immediate nsc ofLord Wellington's army in the frequent pas- sages of the Tagns, which it may be necessary to make; but as it is known, that an immense number of various sorts of small craft was long since collected for that service, those now carried out are not un- likely to be destined in the first instance for some oilier purpose. Perhaps it may be intended to land the troops from this squadron in the rear of some of the French positions north of the Tagtts. There can be little doubt that some of them might be effectually surprised. In the House of Commons yesterday, Mr. Yorke moved the usual vote of seamen, the same numberas that of last y sr. After a few observations this was nil reed to: and Lord Pahnerstoue moved for the sum of S, 000,000i. for bis Msjesty's land forces ; and 2,000,000/. for the miliitia of Great Britain and Ire- land. Mr. Whithread wished to know whether it was the intention of the Noble Lord to recommend any alteration in the system of the local militia ? Lord Palmerstone said it was the intention of Government to diminish the number of days of attendance from three weeks to a fortnight, except in the case of those w ho had not served last year. We extract the following article from a respectable monring paper, but hope that it is not correct:—" In- telligence was yesterday received that the troops for Lisbon, which w ere to have sailed from Plymouth, had been detained in consequence of a telegraphic dispatch transmitted from the Admiralty to that port. The transports were just getting under weigh on Mon- day morning with a fine w ind when the signal stopped tliem from proceeding on their voyage. This circum- stance excited much surprise, and various conjectures have been formed respecting the cause of so unex- pected an order ; but it is stated, that the destination of the troops has been changed, and that the same telegraphic message which prevented them from sail- ing for Lisbon, directed them to proceed to Ireland." Letters from Ireland state, " that Mr. Secretary W. Pole's Proclamation against the Catholic Meeting has excited a great diversity of opinion upon it, between ' the higher orders of that country, but that the lower • are entirely regardless of it or its consequences." It • is understood, should the Catholic Meeting be inter- rupted and dispersed by the Civil Authority, that the lending members of it, on being imprisoned, nieauto continue in gaol, by refusing to put in bail. Yesterday a meeting was held at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, for the purpose of promoting a sub- scription to defray the expenecs of Mr. Finnertv, dur- ing. it's imprisonment for a libel on Lord Castlereagh. Sir IF. Burdett was called to the chair about one oVIoefc, and delivered a long and eloquent speech in support ofthe liberty of the press, and inviudication of the conduct of Mr. Finnerty. In the course of liis address, he read a letter from Walter Hollywood Yate. Esq. in approbation of the conduct of Mr. Fin- nerty ; also a letter from a gentleman at Bath, of the same tendency. It was among other tilings resolved, that two gentlemen should receive subscriptions for Mr. Finnerty at Bath. The company consisted of about 400. We are sorry to announce the death of the gallant and patriotic'Duke of Albuquerque, who, besides many other brilliant services he rendered his country, saved Cadiz from falling into the hands ofthe French, on their irruption into Andalusia, by a most rapid atitl masterly march. He died between eleven and twelve o'clock on Monday night, in a paroxysm of dtliriom, at his lodgings, in Portman- place, Edg- ware- road.— He was attended by ninephysieians ofthe first eminence, some of whom are attached to the Household of Ills Royal Highness the Prince Regent, but all the resources of art proved unavailing. His disorder was a brain- fever, brought on by over ex- ertions ofhis active mind. STROUD ASSEMBLIES. THE next STROUD ASSEMBLY will be held at the GEORGE INN, on Tuesday, the 5th of March.

On Monday hist died, at Whitc'omb Court, in the parish of Badgworth', aged 87, Mr. Henry Bubb, a man universally respected. A few davs since died, at Rttdford, Miss Holder, sister of Mrs. Holder, of that place. Ou the 4th inst. died, at Horscley, in this county, at an advanced age, John Harvey, Gent. Oil Tuesday last died, at Hardwick, Mi-. " William Hide, a very respectable farmer, and truly honest man.

On Wednesday, the 13th inst. died, at his house, in Salisbury- Place, Marv- le- bone, at the advanced age of 83, Thomas Elborough, Esq. unclu to Mr. Prilen, solicitor, Cheltenham. Lately died, in his 69th year, Mr. Henry White, attorney at law, Tewkesbury— in whose demise the: profession has lost a most worthy and esteemed ifieni- ber, and society one of its brightest ornaments. On Wednesday last, the 20th instant, the Rev, Wolvey- Astley, A. M. was instituted by commission to the rectory of fchiennington, in the diocese of Glo- ccster, void by the death of John Pettat, Clerk, on the presentation of Michael HickCs Beach, Esq. of Wil- lianistrip, in this county. Oil Wednesday last,, a meeting Was held at the Bell Inn, in this city, in consequence of an ad- vertisement in the last Gloeester Journal, sigrtfed by several respectable inhabitants, requesting a meeting of those who approved of a cultiful and respectful Address to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, without involving any political opinions as to the Restrictions. A more numerous and respect able meeting has seldom fallen within our notice. The insertion of its resolutions in another column of this page, renders it unnecessary for us to say more than to remark upon the manned ill which the pro- ceedings were conducted, and iii avoiding all inflated expressions and invidious allusions, it is but justice to say that the degree of temper aud moderation which prevailed, was such as we should be glad to see on all occasions. Ou Friday, the Corporation of pis'city voted an Address to the Prince Regent, iameiylpg the re- strictions which fettered his Royal Highness'* ap- pointment to the office. It is to be presented by the worshipful the Mayor, accompanied by the Re- corder, and the City Members. The Corporation and Common Council of Bristol have voted an Address to the Prince Regent, on his appointment to the functions of the Executive Go- vernment of the country; and we understand that the worshipful tile Mayor, Mr. Alderman Vanghan, Sir Henry Protheroe, and Mr. Sheriff Inmaii, are gone to Loudon for the purpose of presenting it. Several respectable gentlemen are also using llieir exertions to promote an Address to his Royal Highness from tile citizens at large. Lieut. Barrett, who was wounded whilst engaged in the affair at Palamos, under Capt. Fane, men- tioned in Saturday week's Gazette, is the only son of Mr. Barret, of the Crown Inn, Cheltenham, a youth of promising nautical ability and prowess. Mr. Cripps moved in the House of Commons On Tuesday, for leave to bring in a bill to alter and amend the Act of the 14th of Charles II. respecting parochial settlements. The Corporation of Bath, on Tuesday last, resolved to petition Parliament against the Bill now in pro- gress through the House of Commons, for making a canal from Lyncomb and Widcomb to Bristol, unless clauses are introduced compelling the proprietors to remove certain obstructions in the river navigation, and otherwise facilitate the passage of the water in case of floods. We understand that the second reading, in the House of Commons, ofthe Bill for extending the canal from Bath to Bristol is fixed for the 28th inst. Lucien Bonaparte, it is said, brought with him to this country 100,0001. in good bills; during his re- treat, in Italy, he is said to have composed au epic poem, which he entitles " Charlemagne." The report of the Infirmary for Diseases of the Eye, at Exeter, announces the cure, in the last two years, of 1195 persons; 86 of whom had cataracts, and 33 were boru blind. About ten o'clock, on the evening of Saturday sc'n- night, as Mr. William Bennett, ofElkstone, was re- turning home from this city, he was met by two men, between Brockworth and Horseferry- bridge, whom he had seen for a considerable distance coming leisurely towards him, one oil the outside and the other near the middle of the road ; but neither their appearance nor manner excited the smallest suspicion. As he w as passing them, leaving both on his left hand, the nearest to him made a violent snatch at his bridle; when tiis horse darting aside, and setting off at speed, it was some time before he could recover tile com- mand of him. He then returned towards Hie men, charging them with an intention to lob him; upon which the man at the greatest distance said to the other, ill a low tone of voice, " d— n liini, blow his brains out!" which was instantly at temped by snap- ping a pistol at Mr. Bennet. The flash frightened his horse, which again set of}', and the fellows made away. The one appeared about five feet nine inches ill height; the other was much shorter; each wore a loose brown great- coat, and they had the appearance of fanners' labourers. A gang of villains have lately much troubled the neighbourhood of Cheltenham by their nightly depre- dations amongst the poultry.— Their boldness lias been carried to an unusual pitch of daring, as they have committed robberies in places almost contigu- ous, at intervals of a few nights only.— This happened particularly in the parish of Prestbury last week ; in one case ten ducks aud drakes, which could all fly, were hunted down by a dog, aud caught, as it is sup- posed, in a net; and but a few nights afterwards, no fewer titan 13 couples of fowls were taken from a far- mer at no great distance. On Monday Priscilla Neil was committed to our county gaol by P. Sheppard, Esq. charged with steal- ing a silver salt spoon and several articles of wearing apparel, the property of Win. Neel, of Mincliinhainp- ton; and on Thursday, Jolni French, by R. B. Coo- per, Esq. charged with stealing one ewe sheep, the property of Moses Organ, jnn. of North Nibiey.

SIR, AClandestine opposition was some time ago set on foot by an individual or two of this town, inimical to the principal prompters of the in- tended Lanvihangel Train Road : circumstances transpired which caused the opposition to be more public, and a committee was appointed at a meeting convened at Grosmond, in October last, for the purpose ( amongst other things) of conducting such opposition; that committee did, I understand, meet the Lanvihaugel Road committee a few days ago, at the Angel here, when terms of compromise were ultimately agreed upon and entered into, by a deputa- tion appointed on behalf of each; and the Lauvihangel Road promoters were promised, and led to expect the warm support of every member of the opposite committee; but I learn with regret and surprise, that the sting which first caused the opposition, has not been eradicated from the bosom of one or two of the persons with whom it originated. I am a subscriber to the Road, and feel indignant at such conduct, well knowing ( as every person acquainted with the country must) that the undertaking will be of very great advantage to the conntiy in general. The bill is supported by gentlemen of this country only, the opposition originated ( as before observed) and is carried on in this town and neighbourhood ; and as I dare say neither of the gentlemen composing either committee would be ashamed of seeing his name published, I hand you the names of those living in this town and neighbourhood, who are ( I understand) members of the different committees, namely, Mr. Frere, of Llanelly, Mr. Lewis Osborne, Mr. Thos. James, the Rev. Wm. Powell, of Abergavenny, and the Rev. J. George, of Grosmon l, on behalf of the opposition; and Mr. Lewis, of Llanelly, Mr. James, of Lanartli, Mr. Swinnerton, of Wacastow; Mr. Powell, of Lanvihangel, ( the present Sheriff',) the Rev. Rich. Davis, of Courl- yGolIeii, the Rev. Mat- thew Monkhouse, of Sirliowy, Capt. Chambre, of Lanfoyst, Mr. Morgan, of the Hill, Mr. A. Gabb, and Mr. Chas.

ON Thursday, Feb. 7th, 1811, as Thomas Clem- mons and James Artus'were bricking uu a well, which tliey bail previously sunk, near the Upper Turnpike, Cheltenham, a qilantityof earth gave way and nearly filled up that part they had already walled up; Glenimons having got into the well, and neariy cleared it out, a second quantity of eartli fell in, buried him several feet deep, and threw Artus against the edge of the brickwork, which mticli injured him in the back; the well being deep and small, it was a considerable time before Clemmons conld be dug Out. Medical assistance was ineffectual! Clemrnons has left a wife ( fin- advanced in a state of pregnancy) and seven small children. He was a good husband and an affectionate father; was a Very sober man, and fetv equalled him for industry and hard labour. TO THE BENEVOLENT.

Major- General Abeicomby, dated Port Louis, Isle of France, Dec. 7,1810. 1 have the honour to inform your Lordship, that the Isle of Fi ance surrendered by capitulation, on the 3d iiist. to the united force under the command ofVice Admiral Bertie and myself. I must refer your Lord- ship, for the particulars, to the copy of my official let- ter to the Right Hon. the Governor General. This Dispatch wiil be delivered by Capt. Hew it, my Aid- dc- Camp, and I believe your Lordship will find him perfectly qualified to afford you every information which you may require. To I In• Right Hon. Lord Minto, SfC. tfc. I had the honour to inform your Lordship in my dispatch of the 1st ult. that although the divisions from Bengal and the Cape of Good Hope had not ar- rived at the rendezvous, it tiad been determined that the fleet should proceed to sea ou the following morn- ing, as, from the advanced season of the year, and the threatening appearance of the weather, the ships could no longer lie considered secure in their an- chorage at Rodriguez. Early in the morning of the 22d, Vice- Admiral Bertie received a communication from Captain Broughton, of'liis Majesty's ship Illustrious, announc- ing his arrival oft' the Island, with the convoy from Bengal. The fleet weighed at day- light, as had been uiistinally arranged, and in the course of that day a junction having been formed with this division, the fleet bore up f or the Isle of France. Owing to light and battling winds, the fleet did not arrive iu sight of the island until the 28th ; ami it v as the morning of the following day before our ships came to anchor. Every arrangement tor the disem- barkation having lieeii previously made, tlie first di- vision, consisting ofthe reserve, the grenadier com pany of the 59th regiment, with two six- pounders, ami two how itzers, under the command of Major Gen. Warde, effected a landing ill the bay ofMapon, without the smallest opposition, the enemy having retired from Fort Marlastri, situated at the head of Grand Bay, and the nearest port to us they occupied. As soon as a sufficient part of the European force bad been formed, it became necessary to move for- ward ; and the column marched about four o'clock, and succeeded in gaining the more open country, with- out any efforts having been made by the enemy to retard otir progress, a few shot only being fired by a small piciptet, by which Lieut. Col. Keating, Lieut. Ash, of his Majesty's 12th regiment, and a few men of ihe advanced guard, were wounded. Having halted for a few hours ( hiring the night, the army again moved forward before day- light, with the in- tention of not halting till arrived before Port Louis, but the troops having become extremely exhausted, not only " from the exertion which they had alrrady made, but from having been almost totally deprived of water, of w hich this part of the country is destitute, was compelled to take up a position at Moulin a Poudre, about five miles short of the tow n. The main body of the army, soon after it had moved off its ground, was attacked by a corps ofthe enemy; who, with several field- pieces, had taken a strong position, very favourable for attempting to make an impression on the head of the column, as it shewed itself at the end of a narrow road, with a thick wood on each flank. The European Flank Battalions, which formed the advanced guard, under the command of Licut.- Col. Campbell, of the 33d Regt. aud under the general direction of General Ward, formed with as much regularity as the bad and broken ground would admit of, charged the enemy with the greatest spirit, and compelled him to retire with the loss ofhis guns, and many killed and w otinded. This advantage was gained by the fall of Lieut.- Col. Campbell, a most excellent and valuable Officer, as well as Major O'Keefc, of the 12th Regt. whom I have also every reason to sincerely regret. In tlie course of the forenoon the army occupied a position in front of the enemy's lines, just beyond the range of cannon- shot; and on the following morning, while I was employed in placing myself in a situation to make a general attack, Gen. de Caen proposed to capitulate.— Many of the articles appeared to Vice- Admiral Bertie ami myself to be perfectly inad- missible ; but the French Governor having, in the course of the same day, acceeded to our terms, a capitulation for the surrender- of this colony anil its dependencies was filially concluded. Your Lordship will perceive that the capitulation is in strict conformity with the spirit of your instruc- tions, with the single exception that the garrison is not to be made prisoners of war. Although the determined courage and high state of discipline of the army, which your Lordship has done me the honour to place under my command, could leave not the smallest doubt in my mind in respect to the issue of au attack upon the town, I was never- theless prevailed upon to acquiesce ill this indulgence beinz granted to the enemy, from the desire of sparing the lives of many brave officers and soldiers, out of regard to the interests of the inhabitants of this island, having long laboured under the most degrading misery and oppression, ( and knowing confidentially your Lordship' further views in regard to this army) added to the late period of the season, when every hour became valuable: I considered these to be motives of much more national importance, than any injury that could arise from a small body of troops at so remote a distance from Europe, being permitted to return to their own country, free from any en- gagement. In every other particular, we have gained all which could have been required, if the town had been carried by assault. During the course of this short service, the officers and men ( European as well as native) hare cheerfully and patiently submitted to tiie greatest fatigues and privations. During the advance of the army, the troops were unable, for the space of twenty. four hours, to procure a sufficient supply of water; but this trying circumstance did not produce a single murmur, or the smallest mark of discontent or dis- approbation.

In addition, to the shipping and naval stores, we un- derstand the property found on shore was immense, including a large quantity of specie; but the greatest gratification afforded to the captors, was the release of niaiij- British prisoners, of all descriptions, who had been carried in there, from time to tune, by the enemy's cruisers. ISLE OF FRANCE— The Abbe Raynal gives the following view of the political » nd commercial advan- tages of this important island : —" The Isle of France must always be allowed to he one ofthe most valua- ble possessions for any nation desirous of trading to Asia. It is situated in the African Sea, just at the entrance ofthe Indian Ocean. As it lies a little out of the common track, its expeditions can be carried on w ith greater secrecy. Those who wish it was nearer our Continent, do not consider that if it were so, it would IK- impossible to reach the coasts of Malabar and Coromandel in a month's time, and the most distant gulphs ill two months at most, which is an inestimable advantage to a nation, who, like the French, have no sea- port in India. This island, though in the same latitude as the barren and scorch- ing coasts of Africa, is temperate and healthy. The soil is stony, but tolerably fertile. Experience has shewn that it will produce most of the necessaries, and even of the luxuries of lift. Whatever it may- want maf be supplied from Madagascar and from Bourbon, where the inhabitants have retained their simplicity of maimers, and a taste for husbandry. Great Britain sees with a jealous eye her rivals pos- sessed of a settlement which may prove the ruin of her flourishing trade with Asia. At the breaking out of a war, her utmost efforts will certainly be aimed at a colony that threatens her richest treasures. What a misfortune for France should she suffer herself to be deprived, of it." CAPTURE OF BANDA. In addition to the capture of the Isle of France, we have tlie heartfelt satisfaction to acquaint our readers of another acquisition in tiie same quarter of the globe. The Island of Banda, one of the celebrat- ed Dutch spice islands, and a place of very consider- able strength, has been taken by one of those dauntless coups de main for which British seamen are so much distinguished. Government have not yet received any official account of this event, but the copy of a letter containing the details of the exploit will be seen below. It is au additional circumstance of gratifica- tion, that not a single life has been lost iu the enter- prize, notwithstanding our brave fellow s were exposed to the fearful odds of above one thousand to about one hundred and eighty. We are happy to add that the booty which is likely to accrue to the captors upon this occasion will exceed 400,0001. sterling. Extract of a prkate letter. " Baracouta, Indian Ocean, Oct. 8,1810. " Having met a merchant ship on her way to Eng- land, I avail myself of the opportunity of sending you the earliest account ofthe capture of Banda; and as the public dispatches cannot; reach England for some time after this, I take the liberty of giving you a de- tailed account of the attack. " Tbe Caroline, Pitdmontaise, and Baracouta, ar- rived off Banda on the 8th of August, and hove- to at a considerable distance from the land, to avoid being seen; a hope w hich was frustrated by some fishing- boats. At ten at night, being about four miles from the harbour, the boats were hoisted out, and assem- bled alongside the Caroline, containing 390 men. " At twelve the boats shovtd off, under the com- mand of Capt. Cole, the w eather being then tolerably fine : it soon, however, became dark aud squally, at- tended w ith a boisterous sea, which occasioned the separation ofthe boats; and on arriving at the ap- pointed rendezvous, Capt. Cole found the original torce diminished to 130 men. After remaining until three o'clock, in hopes of being joined by the missing boats, it became necessary to push on for Banda Noira, still three miles off, or return to our ships, mortified aud dissappointed. " Capt. Cole fortunately determined to go on, and on approaching the shore, we found, by several alarm guns being fired, that the enemy were expecting us. The badness of the weather, w hich had before acted against us, now became our protection, for the boats gronnded undiscovered in a heavy squall of w ind and rain within 100 yards of a battery of ten 24- poHhd- ers, which was stormed ill the rear; the sentinel was killed by a pike, and 60 men were disarmed without firing a pistol. " After leaving a guard in the battery, the storm- ing party, headed by Capt. Kench, and the reserve by Capt. Cole, proceeded to Fort llelgica, by a narrow path on the skirts of the town. Tbe bugle was then sounding the alarm of our, lauding. The enemy iu Bclgiea reserved their iMJKtil we got close to the walls. The scaling laddi jMR- e then placed between the guns, and mounted with " rapidity exceeding all belief, notwithstanding a very smart fire from the citadel and the surrounding bushes, bpth very ill- di- rected. ** After gaining possession ofthelowor works, the lad- ders were hauled up and placed against the inner wa'fc; the interval occasioned by this seemed to give, the enemy fresh courage ; but when they saw the ladders firmly fixed, they teemed panic- struck, aud tied in all directions, leaving the Colonel- Commandant and ten men killed, and two Captains and tliii ty men prisoners. " The guns near which flic ladders were placed for- tunately burnt priming, ow ing to the heavy rains, and thus v. e iound ourselves in possession of this strong citadel, without the loss of a single man, just in time for the sun to rise on the British flag, and to shew- us our commanding situation; having fort Nassau and the town immediately under ourguiis, A flag of trace was dispatched to the Governor, offering protection to private property on the surrender of the Island, which WJJS refused; however, a shot from Belgica, and a threat of storming the town and forts, produced an immediate and unconditional surrender, and 700 disciplined troops and 300 militia grounded their anus to us. " Capt. Cole's feelings at this moment must have been, in unison with his followers, proudly grateful. The enemy iiad notice of the squadron's approach at six o'clock in the afternoon, and dispatched a great pait cfiijeir force to the place were Admiral Rainier landed j an event which Capt. Cole had foreseen. " The enemy, taking advantage ofthe flag of truce which we had th ing in Bclgica, opened a fur- ou the shipping just entering the harbour, bnt a fewshnt from that commanding fort drove them from their guns. Fortunately the nature of the attack required no fil ing from the assailants, as the boats grounded at some distance from the shore, and the men had to wade up to the middle in water. The enemy were drawn up at their guns, with lighted matches. " Banda Noira and its dependenciesexport 900,0001. worth of spices annually to Batavia; we found about 400,0001. worth of spices at the time of the capture. " The Piedmontiiisc remains at Band, i, in charge of the Island, until the Indian Government send to gar- rison it. We are now on onr way to Admiral Drury, with dispatches; and the Caroline is making arrange- ments to supply provisions from the neighbouring is- lands. " EDMUND LYONS, " Lieutenant of the Baraconta." [ Banda is one of Hint cluster of spice islands called the Moluccas, from which the Dutch, ill the days of their commercial prosperity, drew such immense wealth. It is about twenty miles broad, and ten long, and produces both nutmegs and cloves, but the former in great abundance. It was taken ill 1796 by a squad- roll under the command of Admiral Rainier, and res- tored at the peace. Of the judgment with which these expeditions were planned, and the ability with which their object has been accomplished, it would be as difficult to speak in terms of dnc praise, as to enumerate all the advan- tages that must result to this country from so important a conquest. Bonaparte declared that " Ships, Colo- nics, and Commerce," were the primary objects of tin- policy ot" France. He is now left without a single colony- in any quarter of the globe ; the remnant of his naval force no longer finds security even in its skulk- ing places; and the commerce of France and of tlieCon- tliicnt is now, intact, become extinct!— Such is the manner iu which the promises of the tyrant have been fulfilled, and Ins first hopes and wishes accomplished ! While lie has foolishly scaled up the Continent of En- rope against British commerce, Great Britain has vir- tually imprisoned him within that very Continent— for beyond it lie no longer possesses a single foot of ground ! Ofthe colonies of Holland, Batavia certain- ly still remains; but this settlement, too, will imme- diately lie wrested from its present possessors, not for the purpose of retaining it ( for it is in no respect of much consequence, while, from its unhealtliiness, it would only serve as a grave for our soldiers,) but in order totally to extirpate the enemy from every co- lonial territory in the world ; and this object accom- plished, the fortifications will be entirely demolished, and the settlement left independent in the quiet pos- session of the natives, with whom, of course, a com- mercial intercourse will be duly cultivated.— It was the favourite maxim of an enlightened Roman, that the power possessing the dominion of the seas, pos- sessed virtually that ofthe land ; and Great Britain, in her present proud struggle with the Colossal Ty- rant of the Continent, is not insensible to the full force of a maxim more applicable to this country than to any other existing civilized society. By their never- ceasing attention to maritime pursuits, the Dutch once not only acquired independence, but became absolute- ly formidable to all Europe ; and witli the incalcula- ble advantages we possess, pursuing the same course w e have of late so wisely adopted, there can be no doubt either of our remaining invulnerable to every effort of Bonaparte, or of our commanding the res- pect, while we excite the envy and the admiration of the Universe.] It is with feelings ofthe most painful emotion, that we arc at length compelled to advert to tlie present agitated state of Ireland. The apprehensions of the Irish Government will best appear from tbe following official notice, which was expedited on Tuesday last to the Sheriffs and Chief Magistrates in all counties : " Dublin Cattle, Pel,. 12, 1811. " Sir,— It being reportedthat the Roman Catholics in the county of — are to be called together, or have been called together, to nominate or appoint persons as Hepftesentnrives, Iui » , or Managers, to act on their behalf as members of an unlawful as- sembly, sitting in Dublin, and catting itself the Ca- tholic Committee, you are required, in pursuance of tiie provisions of an Act of the Thirty- third of the King, Chap. 29, to cause to be arrested, and commit to prison ( unless bail shall be given) all jiersous within your jurisdiction, who shall be guilty of giving, or having given, or of publishing, or having published, or of causing, or having caused to be given or publish- ed, any written or other notice of the election aud ap- pointment, in any manner, of such representative, delegate, or manager as aforesaid ; or of attending, voting, oractiug, or of having attended, voted or act- ed in any manner in the choice or appointment ofsuch representative, delegate, or manager. And you are to communicate these directions, as far as lies iu your power, forthwith to the several Magistrates ofthe said county of———. '* N. B. Sheriffs are to act under the warrant of Ma gistrates in cases where the crime has been commit- ted. " By command of his Grace the Lord Lieutenant, To . w, W. POLE." Of the propriety of this course we are not able to speak ; but certainly feel disposed to approve of any measure which may prevent the incalculable horrors attending an explosion of popular fury: the mine which every firebrand may thus light up should be af- terwards removed. The Board of Trade, we understand, have not granted any fresh licences for the Baltic during the week. The applications om merchants remain under consideration. The crew of the Otter sloop of war, which arrived at Plymouth from the Cape of Good Hope, suffered the greatest privations on the passage, owing to a want of fuel to cook their provisions. Tlicy consum- ed two of tlieir boats, and all the spare timber they had ; and when that was expended, they were com- pelled to eat their beef and pork raw. UNITED STATES.— Philadelphia Papers to the 30th December, and New York to the 8th ult. arrived on Saturday. We find in them a continuation of the correspondence between Marquis Welleslcy and Mr. Pinkney, which was laid before Congress at the com- mencement of the Session. In Mr. Gallatin's Report to Congress on the Non- Intercourse Act, it is pro- posed " to strengthen the Non- Iiiterconrse law, by placing an additional number of collectors of the re- venue on the Canada line, and to support them in the execution of their office by a military force." The letters received on this occasion state, that Mr. Gallatin is supposed to lave something more in view than the mere enforcement of the Non. Intercoiirsc Act on the Canada line. That his object, in short, is, that a sufficient forte should be in readiness to carry into execution whatever plans the Government have 1| contemplation ; the chief of which ale sus- pected to be the detentbn of all British property in the United States, subsequent to the 2d of February. The cargoes of mast oftli'se vessels being on account of American mercliants, their seizure and confiscation may naturally be expected to produce strong dissatis- faction, if not absolute opposition by force in the various ports to which they are bound, Impm'tant Decision respecting the Dog Tax.— A gentleman near Warwick, who keeps only one dog merely for the purposes of a house- dog, returned it as such, to the Surveyor ot'Taxes. That return was objected to, because, it was insisted, the dog, being ofthe Spaniel kind, is liable to the higher rate of duty, the same as a yivrtnig dog. The gentleman re- monstrated— stating hat the dog is not, in Ins opinion, « true spot- ling spanel, but a common mongrel, and therefore does not cme within even the letter of the Act of Parliament- ami, at ail events, not being trained nor ever itsd for the purposes of sporting, most certainly it des not fall Within- the spirit and meaning of that At. The remonstrance was how- ever. unavailing; amnotice of an appeal was givei — The case was head before the ( mmissioners at Wellesbouriie, on Wednesday lit: when, without a moment's hesitation it was decided against the Sur- veyor. ADHRBSS FRO* THE CITY OP I. ONDOJT. On Thursday the city address was presented to His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, with the usual form. We believe that the answer of His Royal Highness has very much disappointed the promoters of the address, and indeed the party at large. THE PRINCE'S ANSWER. " Gentlemen,— I thank you for the assurance of your attachment, and of your confidence in the . sin- cerity of my endeavours to promote the welfare and security of His Majesty's dominions, by the faithful administration of those powers with which I am in- trusted, during the lamented indisposition of the Ring. " Iu the arduous situation in which I am placed, I can assure you, that it will be the happiest moment of my life, w hen by the blessing of Providence I shall he called upon to resign the powers now delegated to me, into the bands of my beloved and revered Father and Sovereign. " My own disposition, no less than the example of mv Royal Father, will make me at all times ready to listen to the complaints of those who may think them- selves aggrieved, and will determine me on all occa- sions to regulate my conduct upon the established principles of that ancient and excellent Constitution under which the people of this country have hitherto enjoyed a state of unrivalled prosperity and happiness."'
