FRENCH PAPERS, TENTH BULLETIN OF THE GRAND ARMY. _ WITEP. SK, Juty 31,1812.— The Emperor of. Rus. sia and the Grand Duke Constantine have quitted the army, and repaired to the capital. On the 17th, the Russinn army left the entrenched camp of Drissa, and matched tow.-. rds Polotsk and Witcpsk. The Rus- sian army which was at Drissa consisted of five corps d'armee, each of two divisions, aod of fjur divisions > f cavah v. One corps d'armee, that of Prince Witt- m it" n, remained for the purpose of covering St. Petersbutgh ; the four other corps, having arrived on t ie 21th at Witepsk, crossed to the left bank of the Dwina. The corps of Ostermann, with a party of the cavalry of the guards, put itself in motion at day- break of the 25th, and marched upon Ostrova. BATTLE OF OSTROVNO On 25th July, Geu. Nansouty, with the divisions Bruyere and St.' Germain, and the 8th light inFm'fry, encountered the enemy two leagues in advance of Os- trovno. The action commenced. Several charges of cavalry took place ; all of them were in favour of the French. The light cavalry covered itself with dory. The King of Naples mentions the brigade Pire, composed of the 8th hussars, and 16lh chas- seurs, as having distinguished itself. The Russian cavalry, of which a part belonged to the guards, was overthrown. The batteries which the enemy opened upon our cavalry were carried. The Russian infan- try, who advanced to support their artillery, were l> ro ken and sabred by our light cavalry. On the 26th, the Viceroy marching with the divi sion Delzon at the head of the columns, an obstinate action of the advanced guard, of 15 to 20,000 men, took place a beyond league 03trovna. The Russians wore driven from their positions one after another.— The woods were carried by the bayonet. The King of Naples, and the Viceroy, mention with praise Ge- nerals Baron Delzon, Huard, and Roussel, The 8th light infantry, the 84th and 92d regiments of the Jine, and the 1st Croats, distinguished themselves. Gen. Roussel, a brave soldier, after being the whole day at the head of the battalions, was visiting the advaac d posts at ten at night, when a sentinel took him for an enemy, fired upon him, and the ball shattered his skull. He ought to have died three hours sooner on the field of battle, by the hands of the enemy. On the 27th at day break, the Viceroy made the division Broussier file off in advance. The 18th light infantry and the brigade of light cavalry of the Baron de Pire, wheeled to the right. The division Broussier marched by the great road, and repaired a small bridge which the enemy had destroyed. At bay break, the enemy's rear guards consisting of 10,000 cavalry, was perceived drawn up en echellon on the plain ; their right resting on the Dwina, and their left on a wood lined with infantry and artillery. Gen. Count Broussier took post on an eminence with tbe 53d, waiting till the whole of his division had pas- sed the defile. Two companies of Voltiguers bad marched in advance alone ; they skirted the b: tnk of the river, advancing towards that enormous mass of ; cavalry, which made a forward movement, and sur- rounded these 200 men, who were thought to be lost, and who ought to have been so. It happened other- I wise. They concentrated themselves with the great- est coolness, and remained during a whole hour hem- med in on all sides : having brought down more than 300 horsemen of the enemy, these two companies I gave the French cavalry time to dehouche. The division Delzon defiled on the right. The J King of Naples directed the wood and the enemy's I batteries to be attacked. In less than an liOur all the | positions of the enemy were carried: and he was I driven across the plain beyond a small river which en- 1 ters the Dwina below Witepsk. The army took a j position on the banks of this river, at the distance of a a league from the town. The enemy displayed in the j plain 15,000 cavalry, and 60,000 infantry. A battle j was expected next day. Th * Russians boasted that I they wished to give battle. The Emperor spent the j rem-. inder of the night in reconnoitring the field, and I in making bis dispositions for next day ; but at day j| break the Russian army was retreating in all direc- I tions towards Smolensk. The Emperor was on an height very near the 200 Voltigeurs, who alone on the plain attacked the right of the enemy's cavalry. Struck by their fine conduct, he sent to inquire what corps they belonged to. They answered, " To the 9ih; and three- fourths of us are lads of Paris."—" Tell them, said the Emperor, " that they are brave fellows: they all deserve the Cross 1" The fruits of the three actions of Ostrovno are 10 pieces of cannon of Russian manufacture taken, the cannoneers sabred ; 20 caissoons of ammunition; 1500 prisoners ; 5 Or 6000 Russians killed or wounded.— Our loss amounted to 200 killed, 900 wounded, and about 50 prisoners. The King of Naples bestows particular praise on Generals Bruyere, Pire, and Or- nano, and on Col. Radzivill, commandant of the 9th Polish Lancers, an officer of singular intrepidity.— The red hussars of the Russian guard have been cut up. They lost 400 men, many of whom are prison- ers. The Russians had three Generals killed or wounded. A considerable nuntber of Colonels and superior officers remained on the field of battle. On the ,28th, at day- break we entered Witepsk, a town of 30,000 inhabitants. It has 20 convents. We have found in it some magazines, pauicularly one of salt, valued at 16,000,000. While the army was marching on Witepsk,, the Prince of Eckmuhl was attacked at Mohilhow.— Bagration passed the Berezkia at Bobrunski, and marched upon Novoi- bickow; At daybreak on the 23d, 3,000 Cossacks attacked the 3d chasseurs, and took 100 of them, among whom were the Coiiinel and four officers, all wounded. The generate was beat j an action commenced, The Russian General Sieverse, with two select divisions, began the attack. From eight in the morning till five in the afternoon, the firing was kept up on a strip of wood, and at a bridge which the Russians wished to force. At five, the Prince of Eckmuhl caused three chosen battalions to advance, put hims If at their bead, overthrew the Russians, carried their positions, and pursued them for a league. The loss of the Russians is estimated at 3,000 killed and wounded. Bagration repulsed, retired upon Bickow, where he passed the Borysthenes', to advance tcwaids Smolensk. The battles of Molhilow and O- ttrovno hive been brilliant and honourabe to our nrrnv. We never have had engaged more than the hair' of the force which the enemy presented, the ground not bein- r suit- able for greater developemetits. ELEVENTH BULLETIN- _ WITEPSK, AUG. 4.—" Intercepted letters from the Camp of Bragation speak of the losses sustained by his corps in the battle of Mohilow, and of the number of desertions from which it has suffered on the route. Every Pole'has remained in his country, so that this corps, which including the Cossacks of Platow, amounted to 50,000 m.- n, is now reduced to less than 30,000. It will join the grand army on the 7th or 8th August, at Smolensk The following is the position occupied by the army on the 4th Au. rust. Head- quarters at Witepsk, with four mi Iges on the Dwina— The 4th corps at Samai oc- cupying Veluj, Poi ietche and Ousirath The King of Naples at Roudenu, with the three fjjst corps of cavalry.— The first corps, commanded by the Prince of Eckmuiil, is at tbe mouth of the Boressina, on the Borysthenes, with two bridges over this last mentioned river, and one bridge upon the Beressina, with double tete- de- p'mt.— The third corps com- manded by the Duke of Elcbingen, is at Liozna.— Tbe 8th cotps, commanded by the Duke of A!> rantes, is at Orcha, with two bridges, and tetes- de- pont upon the Borysthenes— The ,5th corps, Com- manded by Prince Poniatowsky, Is at Moiiilovr, with two b- tdges and teles de pont upon the Borysthenes. The 2d corps, commanded by the Duke of Reggio, is upon the Drissa, advanced before Polotsk, upon the road to Sebei— The Prince De Schwartzesbeig is with his corps at Slunim.— The 7th corps is upon Rozana.— The 4th corps of cavalry, with a division of infantry, commanded by General Count Maubetg, is before Brobunsk and Mozier.— The 10th corps, commanded by the Duke of Tarentum, is befoie Dunaberg and Riga.— The Oth corps, commanded by the Duke of Bulluno is assembled at Tilsit.— Tiie 11th corps, commanded by the Duke of Q tstiglione, is at Stettin. " His Majesty has sent the army into quarters of refreshment. The heat is excessive, greater than what it is in Italy. The thermometer is at 26 and 27 de- grees The nights even are warm. " Gen. Skamenskoi, with two divisions of the coq » _ of Bragration, having been cut off from that corps, and not being able to rejoin it, has entered Wclynhia, effected a junction with the division of recruits com- manded by Gen. Tormazow, and marched upon the 7th corps. He surprised and cut off the Saxon Brig. Gen. Klengel, who had under his command an ad- vanced guard of two battalions, and two squadrons of Prince Clement's regiment. After a resistance of six hours duration, the greater part of this advanced gua d were killed or taken. Gen. Regnier could not co'ine up to their assistance sooner than two hours after the affair was over. Prince Schwartzenberg marched on 30th July to join Gen. Regnier, and push the war with spirit against the enemy's divisions. , " On 19th the Prussian Gen. Qrawert attacked the Russians at Ekau, in Courland, overthrew them, took 200 prisoners, and killed a considerable number. Gen. Giawert much commends Maj. Stiein, who, at the head ot the 1st Prussian dragOons, took promi- nent part in the affair. When G.' n. Graweit had ef- fected a junction with Gen. KList, he drove the ene- my before him on the road to Riga, and invested the tete- de pant. On the 30th the Viceroy sent to Weiij a brigade of Italian light cavalry, 2 > 0 men charged four battalions of the depot, who were on their route to Twor, broke them, took 400 prisoners, and 100 waggons 1 > aded with military stores. On tiie 3t') tli, the Aid- de- Camp Traire, who had been sent forward I with the Queen's dragoons of the Royal III in gu i ii, j arrived at Ousvrath, took a Captain ami 40 men pri- soners, and possessed themselves ol 200 carriages loaded with flour. * " On tbe 30th, tbe Duke of Reggio marched from Polotsk upon Sebei. He met Gen. Wittgen- stein, whose corps had been reinforced by that of Prince Repnin. An engagement took place near the Castle of Jacoubovo. The 26th light infantry ob- tained much glory. The division Legrand gloriously bore up against the fire of the entire of tbe enemy's corps. On the 31st the enemy marched upon the Drissa, to attack the Duke of Reggio, upon his flank, as he marched. The Maish. il took up a position j with the Drjssa in his front. On 1st August the enemy were foolish enough to cross tbe Drissa, and to present themselves in battle array in front of the 2d corps. The Duke of Reggio allowed half their corps to dross, and as soon as lie perceived 15,00') men and 14 pieces of cannon over, he unmasked a battery of 40 pieces of cannon, which played upon them with grape shot for nearly an houi.— At the same time the divisions Legrand and Verdier ni tde a I running charge with the bayonet and drove the 15,000 Russians into the river. All their artillery and mi- litary chests taken, 3000 prisoners, among whom were I several officers, and one of Gen. Wittgenstein, toge- I thcr with 3,500 men killed or wounded, are the result I of this affair^,. The affair of Drissa, those of Ostrov- I no, and Mohilow, might have b>- en in other wars call- 1 ed three battles. The Duke of Reggio praises much I Gen. Count Legrand, who is remarkably cool in ths I field. He also highly applauds the conduct uf the 1 26th light infantry, and the 56th of the. iline. The Emperor of Russia has ordered levies of men in the governments Witepsk iiy Mobilow, but b.- fore hij Ukases could reach those provinces, we were niasteis of them. These measures consequently have j in duced nothing. We have found at Wi'. epsk procla- mations, issued by Prince Alexander of Wirtembui: , and we have learned that the people of Russia ate amusing themselves singing Te Deum on account of the victories obtained by the Russians."

We found our last videttes about three quarters of a league from that town, on the road of Sit b - dka ; w, however, penetrated thither, and ' tumid that ti e tc \ vn was totally evacuated' l> y the enemy, who coi'. fiiiui ( F<* cintinuation see neat page.) BELFAST C > MMRRCIAL CHROKICLE ( In continuation from first page.) fc'mself to observing the river with one company Of Cossacks and two of dragoons ; at least, so we are t">! d by some inhabitants with whom we were able to converse. *" . . .' The river is very much confined at this place ; and its banks are rucged and impracticable. It appeared to me to be^ ibout 60 toises in width. There were two batteries on the other baok, one of seven em- brasures, to infilade the avenues of the town, and other ravines; but as these batteries were not fired, we supposed that, tbev were BO longer mounted with cannon. After having examined the position of Drouis, I next day repaired to the entrenched camp of Drissa, where I arrived, at the same time with the rear- guard of tbe division of Gen. Merle. I imme- diately set aUnit reconnOitering tbe camp j but the enemy still occupying a portion of ground in the rear of their lines, and even some works on tbe right ( turning your back to the river), it was not possible for me to penetrate every where ; the night, besides, prevented me from continuing this reconnoisance. The demolition of the works had been begun im- mediately after tbe arrival of the troops. The arch, of great breadth, formed by the line of the works, is about two leagues in extent-; and is connected with the oiher bank by batteries. There were also batte- ries on the left bank ; btft they were. quite open, in their gorge. The camp is about 2000 toises in* its greatest depth, from the most advanced works to the, river, ft was defended by a series of redoubts, and by open batteries placed - in' the intervals of tbe re- doubts. Entrenchments very steep, and of 100 toises in length, are formed in front of each redoubt. There ate two lines of works nearly similar. The ground more exposed and more practicable on the left quar- t- r, induced the enemy to increase his dcfence on that. side ; and he pl. iced - there a large lengthened work, consisting of an immense bastion, two. curtains, and two redoubts, insulated from the works bv. their foSses: The enemv. bad placed also, towards the-' centre of the curve formed by the river, a' very large'flat forti- fication to serve as a tete de. pont.' It was Jon ' the middle of the wire, of this work that the principal milton, our Consul at- Norfolk, in Virginia, who disliking to remain in a hostile country, engaged the vessel to convey him and his family to this country, DOWNING- STREET, AUGUST 24. Lord AV - llinirton's dispatches are dated Cuellar on the 4th. They state that five French army of the cen- tre after having passed the Oundarama, and after its head quarters had arrived at Uenta de Santa Risaelle, j joined Joseph at Segovia, on the night of the 27th. The allied army were not diverted, however, from the pursuit of tfce army of Portugal ( Marmont, s) tbe rear- guard of which remained on the Douro on the 28th and 29th, but our divisions having . crossed, the Erf- sma On- that day, the enemv retired across the Douro, pursuing the course of their main body to- wards Villa Vaneo abandoning Vill jdo. lid and 1ravin < 17 pieces of cannon, with a great quantity of ammu- nition, their hospital and about 800. sick and wpnnded. The Spanish General, Metqumez, took 300 prisoners near Valladolid On the 30th the advanced guard crossed the Douro, and our troops were received at VaHadolid w'th enthusiastic joy, " Lord Wellington moved on the night along tbe Cija to Cuellar, to prevent the ', unctinn between the Army of Portugal and the troops- under Joseph, and arrived at Cuellar on tbe 1st inst. On the same day Joseph retired from Segovia and marched tbrough the Guadarama, leaving in the former place an advanced guard consisting principally of cavalry. Befoie his departure, he spiked the cannon and destroyed the ammunition in the Castle, and carried off" the church plate, besides levying considerable contributions. The Army of Portugal continues its retreat towards Purges. " Accounts from Sir Rowland Htll to Lord Wel- lington, state a brilliant affair of cavalry which took | place at Ril> er on the 24th ult. The British were ubts, doub'Iess in consequence of the greater quan- tities of earth required by tltebieadth of the'platforms. These butteries ace neither palisaded in the fosse, nor [ I enclosed at their gorge; almost all the redoubts are S . palisaded in their fosses. Some palisades of the fosses, a portion of the platforms of the batteries, some bar- riers, and some trifling; entrenchments on the left, were all that remained stillunfinishud when the ene- my evacuated the canip. It is sufficient - to gl- ince at the annexed sketch,, taken with the eyfc while the, demolition was going forward, in order to form an idea of the prodigious labours such a camp must havi cost the enemy. Be- sides the immensity of its extent, it may be. said that works have been lavished upon it without much ne- cessity. These works are also very ill placed, because they do . not ftank each other at afl, or do it insufficient- ly ; and it is astonishing the Russian engineers could commit so gioss a blunder. The enemy was obliged to cut down a considerable extent of the \ vood on the left, both to erect his works and to unmask them.— Though the wood is marshy and of difficult access, the enemy had still formed abattis of sixty or seventy toisses in width, even at the opening from the wood ; so that this portion of the circuit of the camp is very Strong, as v/ ell as that of the continued work upon which it touches.' The quarter on the right is less•' strongly defended, and here would have been thetrue point of attack. During the night which preceded the departure of the division, the. enemy burnt all his magazines on the other bank. They Were im- mense, and were estimated at many millions. ( Signed) Dp.

Pxniv AUG. 18..— The army of Portugal,' com- manded liy the Marsh il' Duke de Ragtisa, was, on the 24th July, encamped on the Douro, in- front of ( J the English army. The Duke passed that river on the I6th> at Tordesill is, in spite of the enemy, and after several actions, in which the French had always a marked advantage, the enemy was driven b'ick to Salamanca, when the two arniits were in front of each other on the : afeer a cannonade of some dura- tion on both sides, and while the Marshal Duke de Ra usa, resolved to give battle, was occupied in mak- ing his final arrangement, he was stricken by a shell, which broke his right arm, and wounded him in two places in the right side. This accident obliged 1pm to- quit tlte field of battle : his life is not however in danger. The General of division, Cl tuZtl, took the command just as the action commenced ; it continued for several hours with the greatest fury; prodigies « f valour, and several actions, worthy or the Frencfi name, were peiformed. Nevertheless the accident which happened to the Duke of Ragusa had, from the first, determined Gen. CLiu7. el to retire upon the right of the Tonnes. After alternate and equal suc- i cesses, he re- crossed that river at Alba, leaving one of his divisions to covcr the bridge of that place till the middle of the day following. The retreat was effect- ed without molestation from the enemy, whose loss was very considerable. The French army continued their mute on 23d July, by Pcr. eranda, whither they were followed by the English Cavalry. Our rear- guard made a successful uttack on, them, forced nhem to hiske a rapid retr'cht, 4iid killed numbers of them. The army then continued their route with « ut aav fur- ther molestation, and have resumed theh- former posi- tion at - Tordesillas, and with the Douro in their front.

Tabvier, Aid- de- C. imp to tlie Duke of Ragnsa, who has~ been Sent by his Ex- cellency the War Minister to the Emperor's head- quarters, LONDON, • Monday, August 24. .

The dispatches from Lord Wellington do not confirm any of these statements There have been some movements in our army in Estramadura, but they have led to nothing important. Soult marched in force upon Urnachos on the 2.9th, and Gen. Hill on the same d* y proceeded to Villa- franca and Almendralejo. But the enemy retired in the night of the 29th bv.

In Bucking- hamshire, Surrey, and some other of the counties in the immediate neighbourhood of the metro- polis of England, the fields are nearly cleared Every where tke produce is good and abundant. Meetings of proprietors of Manors have been held at several places in Kent, and other coun. ties, declaring that, op account of the backward- wardness ot" the harvest in particular districts, it will be expedient to postpone the first day of shooting from. the 1st until the 14th of September.

Saturday, ISth inst. some bargemen, assembled on the brink ol'the Severn, proposed among them- selves to give either of the party a shilling to walk on the opposite bank, for the purpose of ascertain- ing the depth. One of them accepted the invi- tation for the reward; but had not proceeded many yards in the attempt, whert he sunk".

When the lights were nearly all extingu shed, several tar- barn ' s ver* conveyed to High- street, and set fiie to amidst the shouts of an immense croud of people. Many of the houses of Gentlemen in the vicinity of ' ife town, and some cotton- factories were also illumi- nated, arid had a fine effct from the distance.— We are happy to observe, that such of the inha- bitants as did not think proper to light up their houses, were no way molested by the mob, nor any mischief attempted against their houses. We ate happy to understand, that the Belfast , Br< nch of the Hibernian Bible Society, are ex- tending their operations into a larger sphere".

FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. ADMIUALTV- OFFICF., AUGUST 22. ( Transmitted h/ Sir J. Saumurez. J RIGA, August 4, 1812.— The Russian g » n- boats, » o long expected, and at one time so anxiously desir- ed, arrived here on 31st ult. and now form a most important acquisition to the defence of the place. The way Capt. Stewart has conducted himself in the command of the Russian aud English gun boats, is highly praiseworthy, and his unremitting exertion, so creditable to. the country, has beet) willingly imitated by the officers and men of the Aboukir aria Kinger, Who are placed under his orders ; they have unques- tionably kept the enemy from dossing the river, at the falls above the town, where a body of irlfantry and horse still remain intrenched ; the only time they ever advahced towards the boats, they were dispersed in a very few minutes, after losing ; lye men and two horses killed. Gen. Cravart, who . commands the troops of the enemy in this neighbourhood, during the absence of Marshal Macdonald, sent on ' 27th ult. to summons General Essen to surrender, assigning as a reason to do so, that his battering train would arrive in the course of a fortnight, There has been a sharp affair in the neighbourhood of Witpsk, where it stjems a strong division of the enemy crossed the Dttna, and j attacked part of the corps of Prince Bagration ; but j ihey were repulsed, and pursued across the river to 1 the distance of several miles. The enemy sustained ! considerable loss in killed and prisoners, most of • • them Wirtemberg troops; the Russian loss is not i mentioned, except that a Gen- Okuloft was killed, j T. B. Martin. RICA, 5th Aug. 1812.— I h ive infinite Sittisfac- j *. ion in acquainting you, that a messenger is arrived from Gen. Count Witgenstein, stating, that a Severe , action was fought between his corps and that under j Marshal Oudinot, on the SOth and 31st ult. in the neighbourhood of Polosgh, or Poloch. It appears i that Oudinot had crossed the Duna, and was march- ing v. ith a view, it is supposed, of comiug round up- a, and cutting off the communication with St. ehen Count Witgenstein commenced a stuck, and obliged him to recioss the river, with the loss of 3000 prisoners, anil some can- non. The fighting had been very shjirp, and the Count was pursuing the enemy } vhen the courier came away. The loss of the killed and wounded is not mentioned on either side, except that G- n. Kul- nien, of the Russian hussars, is killed, and Count Witgenstein slightly wounded. An official report of this action will probably be published in the course of this evening, and I shall forward it to you to- morrow by a vessel going to Hano. We h ive no account from the main army since that of 29th ult. which mention Prince Brag- ra- tion having driven the enemy across the rrer. T. B. MARTIN, Rear- Admiral. P. S. 1 have this evening received the enclosed from Gen. Essen, confirming what I have respecting the affair. T. B. M. RIGA, 21TH JULY (.•> AUG.) 1812 — I hasten to communicate to your Excellency the intelligence I have just received from Gen. Count Witgenstein.— He informs me, that on the 18th and 19th inst. ( SOth and 31st July,) he gained a complete victory over Marshal Oudinot. The battle took place between Shebesch and Polotzk. Three thousand prisoners, two cannons, and a quantity of baggage and ammn nition, are the unequivocal proofs of hrs victoiy. The Count writes, that he is in pursuit of the enemy, and that his advanced posts are hourly sending in fresh prisoners. Being desirous of transmitting, as soon as possible this agreeable intelligence to Gen. Suchtelen, I venture to request your Excellency will forward the inclosed to him by the earliest conveyance. In case you should not at this moment have any vessel dis- poseable, Colonel Ballabin wiil move Admiral Sche- sihenkaff to supply one. ESSEN, Governor of Riga. To Ileai- Admiral . Martin.

We, therefore, ordeir that such of our subjects in the pro. vines of Witepsk and Pskoy, as may have articles' of subsistence, either form- in or beast, beyond their im- immediate want, to deliver them to officers authorised to receive them, and for which they shall - be paid the full value out of the Imperial treasury. The owners of growing crops within the distance of the line of the enemy's march, are commanded to destroy them, and they shall be reimbursed their loss. The pro- prietors of magazines,' either of provisions or clothing, | are required to deliver them to the commissaries for the use of the army, and they wiil be liberally remu- nerated. In general, the spirit of this order is to be carried into execution in regard of all articles, whe- ther of subsistence, of clothing, or of conveyance, which may be considered useful to the invaders; and the magistrates are made responsible for the due ful- filment of these our commands.

" The Russian garrison, which " wai in bur town and port, set out on the 20th, with such precipitation, at break of dav, that for want of horses they were ob- liged to leave three pieces of cannon upon the battery of the port. About three o'clock in the afternoon, we saw the Prussian troops arrive, who' the preceding night were supposed to be 14 leagues distant.; they immediately took possession of the town and pint.— These troops, who were commanded by Major Reuss, consisted of two battalions of fuzileers, with two pieces of artillery, and a squadron of dragoons. Upon entering the town the Prussian Commander imme- diately placed guards in the merchants' vessels, which had not left the port. The cannons taken on board these vessels were landed and placed upon the battery of the port. The following day three Russian ships of the line, two frigates, and a bug, arrived, within a quarter of a league- of the port, and reconnoitered it in a boat, carrying 20 men. The Prussian Command- er of the battery made the garrison lay down, anil as soon as he found the boat was within the ordinary shot distance, ordered them to fire. The Officer who was in the boat, and five men, were! killed. We are ignorant of the number wounded. The boat precipi- tately regained her ship, and we soon lost sight of' the fleet." PROCLAMATION OF emPEROR ALEXANDER. - RUSMANS!— The enemy has quitted the Dwina, and has proclaimed his intention of offering battle.— He: accuses you- of timidity, because he mi- stakes, or affects to mistake, the policy of your system. Can he, then, have tdi'gotten the chastisement which your va- lour inflicted at Dun^ berg and Mihr; wherever, in short, it has been deemed proper to oppose him ?— Desperate counsels are only compatible with the en- terpri e he has undertaken and the dangers of his si- tuation ; but shall we, therefore, be imprudent, and foxe^ o the advantages of our own ? He would march to Moscow— let him. But can he, by the temporary possession of that city, conquer the empire qf Russia, and subjugate a population of 30 millions. Distant from his resources near 800 miles, he would, even if victorious, not escape the fate of the warrior Charles XII. When, pressed on every side by hostile armies, with a peasantry sworn to his destruction, tendered furious by his excesses, and irreconcileable by differ- ence of religion, of customs, of language, how would he retreat ? Russians !--*- Rely on the Emperor and the Commanders whom he has appointed. He knows the ardent and indignant valour which bfirns in the bosoms of his sdfdiers' at the boasts of the enemy.— He knows that thev are eager for battle ; that tiiiey grieve at its being deferred, and at the thought of re-, tiring. This cruel necessity will not exist lung.— Even now the period of its duration lessens. . Al- ready are our allies preparing to menace the rear of the invader; while lie, inveigled too far to letreat with impunity, shall soon have to combat with the sea- sons, with famine, and with innumerable armies of Russians. Soldiers, when the- period for. offering battle arrives, your Emperor will give the signal, will be. an eye- witness of your exploits, and reward your valour. ( Signed) ALEXANDER.

In pursuance of the policy ad- | vised by ou; Military Council, the armies will, for the present, quit their positions, and retire farther into the interior, in order the more readily to unite. The enemy may possibly avail himself of this opportunity to advance ; he has announced this intention. Doubt- less, fin spite of his boasr, he begins to feel all the dif- ficulties :; f his menaced attempt to subjugate us, and is anxious theiefore to engage ; he is desperate, and would therefore put every thing on the issue of a battle.

CbV- gate and Grassmarket, on Tuesday morning, for ' he purpose of intercepting the supplies on their road to the ma ket. Several carts were accord- ingly seized, and heir contents distributed among | the populace; at'er which the mob proceeded to : he D ilk ith roid, where they seized several more carts, and retailed the meal at 2s. per peck, which they gave ' he drivers. The shops also of the viflua'- deal- rs and bakers in Nicholson- street and pla es adjoining were threatened bv the populace, and were in consequence prudently stmt up. Io i the evening, the houses of several meal- sellers in different par's of the town were attacked and she windows broken, and we understand that in Leith there were also considerable, tumults. The Ma- gistrates, wiih a party of constables, repaired, on the first alarm, to the spot, and made every exer- tion to quell the tumult. As a necessary precau- tion, a party of soldiers was ordered from riie castle, and in the forenoon the following judicious proclamation was issued :— By Order of the Righi Hon. the Lord Provost and Magistrates of Edinburgh. The inhabitants are enjoined to avoid all riotous proceed ings in the present circumstances, as any tumult9 that Aiay be excited cm have no other effect than to deter persons who hare provi- ions, from bringing them into town, and thus to increase the scarc ty The Lord Provost and Magistrates assure the inhabitants, that they will use all the means in their power to relieve them from their present distresses, At the same time, as the Magistrates have every reasom to know, that a scarcity of grain exists throughout the country, they give the inha- bitants this public notice, of their determination to m ice use of the powers vested in them, to repress any tumultuous proceedings, and preserve rhe peace of the tity. Council Chamber, Edinburgh, 1 Stb August. Yesterday every thing was quiet, and we hope that the means already adopted may so far palli- ate the existing evil, as to prevent any recurrence of tumult or disorder, which, it must he obvious to every person of lefleflion, can have no other effefl than to drive away the supplies, and thus aggravate the existing mischief; for we may rest assured that no one who has meal to sell, will send it to be plundered. It is absolutely necessary, therefore, even for the sake of the c insumets them- selves, to proteft the f eedorn of the marker, with- out which, there can be no security that the stock on hand will be forthcoming for the maintenance of the people. The M^ g s rates, we ha » e reason to know, are using all the means in their power to procure supplies of provisions; but it mast readily occur to every one, that they must gua- rantee to farmers and corn- dealers the safety of their goods; otherwise they cannot expeft to suc- ceed in their laudable endeavours.— Caledonian Mercury.

The evening concluded with illumination j, an^ the populace were ^ fgaled wnth ten b. airels of al^ j the whole concluded with the greatest harmonv and, at a late hour, a large concourse of people retired to their re « pe£ tive homes, without tlis- smallest tumult or disturbance. The Dinner at Mjynoodi, by wh'ch the ntimiy rous Tenantry of his Grace celeb a'ed his hinh- day, exceeded i'i number and splendour iJie fes- tivities which took place at A. hy and its neigh* b urh rod. Several hundred persons, consisting of the respeftable Tenantry on his Grace's estate, aud also of some Gentlemen who wi re ir. vited Iroiri D ililiri, dined at the Inn. The lower orders of the inhabitants were plentifully regal d in the de mesne of Cart ' n, and the evening conclude 1 with a brill- ant Illumination of the To* n and Collets of Maynoolb. Among the several Gentlemen who, in honour of their cbarafte rs, had been sep irately invited^ were Henry Hamilton, James Hamilton, Robert Morgan, and William Murphy, . of Snriidifidd, Esqrs. ; the Protestant and Roman Catholic Cler. gymen of the pari.- h ; the Superiors ot both Col. eges at M iynooth, and the Officers of he Re^ ji.- ment in the Town and Neighbourhood. The following incident serves to illnsut", in a very high degree, the spirit which animates the British military. Last week a considerable num- ber of ArtilL ry. Drivers and horses were orde- ed to embark at Plymqurh Dock for the Peninsula : at five o'clock in the morning the whole par tied before the barrack- Gates, in high ' piri/ s, having, in patting from sweethearts and wives, been in- duced to take many ' « more last glasses " One of the Drivers,, however, fell from his horse and broke his thigh, when another, not ordered for embarkation, vaulted like Mercurv in'o the fal- len man's saddle, exclaiming, " ' Tis a pitty so fine a horse should want a rider— Here's Lord Wellington for ever— Serjeant, take down my name !"— a request with which the latter, with all due sang, froid, instantly complied, and the who'e party dashed through the streets to the Dock- yard, where they embarked. 0 « Monday the 17th inst. a person ua/ ned Stock, undertook fifr a considerable bet< to run from the Lower Turnpike to Staverton, a distance of four miles, and to, return in an hour, which he perform- ed eight minutes within the time. On his return, for another \# ager, he agreed to perform the same task in an hour and a half, and to start in < i few minutes. This latter run, incredible as it may appear, he accomplished with ease in an hour and ten minutes: every previous pedestrian feat, tviih- iu the limit of our memory, in this neighbour- hood, is, by this acl, surpassed. BRUTALITY— At a country wake in this county, about a fortnight ago, a buil was baited, agiee- ably to the charier of the place. Ail owner of a bulUdo^ s, which had shewn the greatest sport and courage, exhibited the bull's tongue ( whice he had deposited in his breeches pocket) as a trophy of his dog's valour and his own humanity. It is a fafl, that the dug a£ tually tore the bull's tongue up by the roots —( Staffordshire Advertiser J & A few days ago, the laird of Aucliintoriie, ing on a visit at the beautiful villa of Ardgartan, the seat of Mr. Carnegie, on the banks of Loch Long, one morning, went up the burn to fi . h, and having played a large trout f - r some Mn at las', by a su iden spring, it broke the line, and wenc olf with the hook.
