LONDON, TUESDAY, JULY 13. FROM SATURDAY'S LONDON GAZETTE. DOWNING* STREET, JULY 10. ADISPATCH, of winch the following _ is an ex- tract, has been this X JL " at,, day received at Earl Ba- tliurst's Office, addressed to his Lordship by Field- Mar- hal the Marquess of Wellington, dated Orcoyen, 26th June, 1813. " The enemy continued their retreat yesterday morning, from the neighbourhood of Pamplona, by the road of Konoevalles into France, and have been followed by our light troops. " The fort of Pamplona has been invested this day. " I have received a letter of the 22d from Colonel Longa, stating tbat he had taken six pieces of artille- ry, from a detachment of troops under the command of General Foy, on their retreat iuto France by the liigli road at Mondragon. " I ought fo have informed your Lordship, in my dispatch of the 24th, that on the 23d I had detached Lieut.- Gen. Sir Thomas Graham to the left, towards Tolosa, with a view to the operations to be carried on in that quarter. " By a letter from him, of the 25th, it appears that he arrived yesterday at Tolosa, having been opposed in his occupation of that town by the troops which retired tinder the command of Gen. Foy. He men- tions the assistance he had received from Col. Longa, and from two battalions of tbe army of Gallicia, which General Giron had left with him in his attack upon Tolosa. " Sir J. Murray had certainly landed in Catalonia on the 3d inst. and had taken possession of the Col de Balageur, on the 7th, in which post were found seventeen pieces of camion. Some prisoners were taken. CAPTURE OF THE CHESAPEAKE. The Gazette contains the following letter from ^) apt. Broke, of the Shannon, to Capt. Capel, of his DI. jVsty'o ship La Hogtie : — SI", Shannon, Halifax, June 6, 1813. I have the honour to intoriii you that ticin; close in with Boston Light House, in his Majesty's ship nnder my command, on the 1st inst. I had the plea- sure of seeing that the United States' frigate Chesa- peake ( whom we had long been watch'ng) was coming out of the harbour to engage the Shannon; I rook » a position between Cape Aline and Cape Cod, aud then hove to for him to join us— tbe enemy came down in « very handsome manner, having thiee American eu- - signs flying; when closing with us he sent down his Toyal yards. I kept the Shannon's up, expecting the breeze would die away. At half past five P. M. the enemy hauled up within h « it of us on the starboard side, and the battle began, both ships steering full under the topsails; after exchanging two or three broadsides the enemy's ship fell on board of us, her mizeij channels locking iu with our tore rigging. I went forward to ascertain her position, and observing that the enemy we flinching from Ibi ir guns, I gave orders to prepare for boarding. Our gallant bands appointed to that service immediately rushed in, nn der their respective officers, npon the enemy's decks, driving every thing before them with irresistible fnry. The enemy made a desperate but disorderly resis- tance. The firing continued at all the gangways and be- tween the tops, but in two minutes time the enemy were driven sword iu hand from every post. Tbe American flag was hauled down, and the proud old British Union floated triumphant over it. In another minute they ceased firing from below antl called for quarter. The whole of this service was achieved iu 15 minutes from the commencement of the action. I have to lament the loss of many of my gallant shipmates, but they fell exulting in their conquest. My brave first lieutenant, Mr. Watt, was slain in the moment of victory, in the act of hoisting the Bri- tish colours ; his death is a severe loss to the service. Mr. Aldham, the purser, who had spiritedly volun- teered the charge of a party of small- arm men, was killed at his post on the gangway. My faithful old ^ clerk Mr. Dunn was shot by his fide; Mr. Aldham has left a widow to. lament his loss. I request the Commander in Chief will recommend her to the pro- tection of my Lords Commissioners of tbe Admiralty. My veteran boatswain, Mr. Stephens, has lost an arm. He fought under Lord Rodney on the 12th of April. I trust his age and services will be duly re- warded. I am happy to say that Mr. Samwell, a midshipman of much merit, is the only other officer wounded be- tides myself, and he not dangerously. Of my gallant seamen and marines we had twenty- three slain and tifty- six wounded. No expressions I can make use ot can do justice to the merits of my valiant officers and crew; the calm courage they displayed during the cannonade, and the tremendous precision of their fire, could only be equalled by the ardour w ith which they rushed to file assault. I recommend them all warmly to the protection of the Commander in Chief. Having received a severe sabre wound at the first onset, whilst charging a part of the enemy who had rallied on their forecastle, I was only capable of giv- ing command till assured our conquest was complete, and then directing second lieutenant Wallis to take charge of the Shannon, and secure the prisoners, T left the third lieutenant, Mr. Falkiner, who had head ed the main deck boarders, in charge of the prize. I beg to recommend these officers most strongly to tbe Commandtr inChief's patronage, for the gallantry they displayed during the action, antl tbe skill and judg- ment they evinced in the anxious duties which after- wards devolved npon them To Mr. Etough, the acting master, I am much in- debted for the steadiness in which beconn'd the ship into action. The lieutenants Johns and Law, of the marines, bravely boarded at the head of their respec- tive divisions. It is impossible to particularize every brilliant deed performed by my officer* and men ; but I must men- tion, when the ship's yard- arms were locked together, that Mr. Cosnabam, who commanded in our main- top, finding himself screened from the enemy by the foot of the top- sail, laid out at tile main yard arm to tire upon them, and shot three men ill that situation. Mr. Smith, who commanded in our fore- top, stormed the enemy's fore- top tiom the fore- yard arm, and de- stroyed all the Americans remaining in it. I particu- larly beg leave to recommend Mr. Etongb, the acting master, aud Messrs. Smith, Leake, Clavering, Ray- mond, aud Littlejolin, midshipmen. This latter offi- cer is a sen of Capt. Littlejolin, who was slain in the Berwick. The loss of the enemy was about seventy killed and ane hundred wounded. Among the former were the fourth lieutenant, a lieutenant of marines, the master, and many other officers. Captaiu Laurence is since dead of his wounds. The enemy came into action with a complement of four hundred and forty men; the Shannon having pieked up some recaptured seamen, had three hun- dred and thirty. The Chesapeake is a fine frigate, and mounts forty- nine guns, eighteens on her main deck, two and thir- ties on her quarter deck and forecastle. Both ships came out of action in the most beautiful order, their rigging appearing as perfect as if they had only beeu changing a salute. I have the honour to be, & r. V, ^ .( Signed) 1'. B. V.

Bart, dated at Bermuda, May 28, transmits reports of ope- rations upon the livers at the head of the Bay of Chesapeake, conducted by Read- Admiral Corkburn, and executed by Captains Burdett, Lawrenqp, Byng, & c. in the Maidstone, Fantome, Mohawk, Hiahflyer, anil three prize armod schooners, with 180 st; amen ami 200 marines selected frftui the naval brigade of the squadron, and a small detachment of the royal ar- tilley, under Lieutenant Robinson." Ill the morning ofthe 29th of April they completely succepdpd in de- stroying a depot of ( lour, with military aud other stores, at a considerable distance up the river Elk, though protected by a six- gun battery, which the Americans quitted, retreating precipitately into the country. Onr only casualty was the wouuded arm of a seaman of tbe Maidstone, by a grape- shot. Oil the 2d of May the boats of the same squadron attacked a - bat- tery at Havre- de- Grace, at the entrance of tluT Sus- quehanna, from which, and a cannon- foundry, about three or four miles further northward, they tbok^ and destroyed 51 guns, ( including 28 S2- potinders). and 130 staptl of small arms. Lieut. G. A. Westpiial, af- ter receiving a shot through his hand, continued to lead a pursuing party, dislodged the whole of the- ene- my from their lurking- places, and had the satisfaction to overtake, and with his remaining hand to make prisoner and bring in a captaiu of their militia.— The operations of this day were in t. ie centre of the ene- my's country and on his high road between Baltimore and Philadelphia. In the morning of May 6, the boats approached Georgetow n- and Fredcrirkstown, situated up the Sassafras River, and though opposed by the musquestry of about 400 men, aided by oue long gun, they succeeded in gaining the shore, when the enemy fled « ith his w hole force to the wootls, and w as neither seen nor heard of afterward. The two towns ( excepting the houses of those who continued peaceably in them, and took no part in the resistance) were forthwith destroyed, as were tour v.' S- eU iv'ine in the river, and some stores of sugars, lumber, lea- ther, and other merchandize. After ascertaining I tbat there was no public property or warlike stores, and paying full value to the owners fur what the boats stood in need of, the party re- enitarked, with five men wounded, one only severely. Rear- Aduiiral Freemantle, dating on board his Majesty's ship Milford, at Lissa, May 1, transmits a report by Captain Black, in the sloop Weazle, of his attack on an enemy's convoy near Spalatro, the grea- ter part of which, with ten gun- boats, took refuge ill the Bay of Bosceline, and erected batteries on shore, assisted by considerable supplies of troops. The ac- tion continued from half- past five A. M. on the 22d of April at intervals, till five P. M. 011 the 24th, during which, three of the enemy struck their colours, two were driven 011 shore, one sunk, and eight were burnt and destroyed, with several of the gun- boats. The Weazle's loss was five killed and 24 wounded. Capt. Black was severely wounded by a musket- ball which passed through his right band. The Gazette further contains a report from Admi- ral Sir J. B. Warren of four captures from the Ameri- cans; also of twenty by the Channel fleet, under Lord Keith.] ; A letter from Heligoland, dated July 8, says,— " The frigate, which remained here for some time with two gun- brigs and eleven gun- boats, have taken tlieir departure for the Elbe, and in a few days we hope to hear some good accounts from that quarter. Yesterday a boat put inhere from the Elbe, by which we have reports that the Allies have taken Lubeck, and that the Emperor of Austria is dead." A rumour prevailed on Saturday, tlmt the Crown Prince had advanced and taken Hamburgh. It proves a most baseless fabrication. By the subse- quent arrival of a Heligoland mail, with letters to the 6th inst. we learn that a Gentleman had reached the island, who found means to quit Hamburgh on the 3d, up to which time, not only had 110 battle been fought, but the Crown Prince was understood to have acceded to the armistice, aud to be remaining in bis positions, as agreed upon, iu consequence of that measure. He was, however, tndefatigably em- ployed in organizing and reviewing the volunteers, who from all the neighbouring States flocked in crowds to his standard. A Corimna mail has arrived, brought to Falmouth by the Prince Ernest packet. By this opportunity we have some information of considerable importance of a later date than the last dispatch of Lord Welling- ton. The British troops were within half a league of Pamplona, and bad commenced the siege of taut city. General Graham, with two divisions, and General Giron, with the Gallieian army, we learn, were in pursuit of the enemy, and were marching towards Bayonne. Lord Wellington is said to have marched to Jaca with a part of the army, for the purpose of cutting ofFSuchet in his retreat. This movement conduces to the destruction of the French force under that commander. This would be a complete coup- de- grace to French dominion in the Peninsula, and would leave the British General at liberty to pursue his triumphant march into France, without any danger from au ene- my behind him. The intelligence from the cast of Spain is no less pleasing than that from the north. Valencia is assert- ed to have been evacuated— O'Farrel to have sur- rendered with his corps— Barcelona to have been be- sieged, and Tarragona to have been taken.— The ar- mies of General Elio and the Duke Del Parquc, to the amount of 30,000 men, had concentrated in the province of Valencia, so tbat Sucliet will find ene- mies on all sides, and bis only road to France will be I iirpugti the mou ntainous part of Catalonia, tlironah which he cannot convey his artillery and baggage, and where he will most probably meet the bands of Gue- rillas under D'Eroles and Lacy. Private letters received from Paris to the 5th inst. state, that the defeat of Joseph, in Spain, was well known I11 the French capital, although the Govern- ment had allowed no particulars of the event to he published. The Southern Departments being the weakest part of France, the approach of the Allied Army had excited not a little apprehension for tlieir safety. The sick person, whose residence in the Palace of Dresden has been noticed iu the papers, is supposed to be Berthier, whom wc know to have been lately very much indisposed. A German paper, conducted by the celebrated Kotzebne, n- kes the following observations 011 the article in thelFrench papers which first announced that Bonapajte had proposed the meeting of a Con- gress at PI. gue, to negociate a general peace:— " It would tie superfluous to comment upon the in- lelligince thus auaanucett. Napoleon, ever aware that there are some simple. beings who are susceptible of any impression, puts 011 the appearance of being as meek as a lamb, and pretends to have nothing so much at heart as the restoration of peace. But eveTy man that does not fall into the snare will contrast this honied discourse with the series of his actions, which testify, that with the conviction of his ap- proaching ruin, a hell of more and more turbulent passions boils in bis bosom, which renders every idea of peace au insufferable torment, and makes the noise of battle and the groans of the dying indispensably necessary to his existence. So far is he from being serious iu his overtures for peace, that while he offers his hand to England, he totally precludes her from entertaining any wish for peace. The Britons are in- veighed against as egotists. How long will the 1 French usurper continue to sound this cuckow- note I" The Manchester packet has been captured by the York Town American privateer, after a running tight - of 20 hours, and a close engagement, above au hour Unstained with a skill and gallantry almost unprece- dented, considering the inequality of force.— The York Town is a cpt down East In'diaman, of 500 tons, with a- bulwark of 14 inch solid timber, six feet high, and mounts, sixteen long twelve and nine pounders, and has on hoard 116 men. The Manchester carried ten guns, six and nine pounders, and 30 men, and is only 180 tons burthen. At tbe time she struck she had only two pounds of powder left, and her sails, rigging, hiasts, & c. were cut to pieces. A mail from Halifax and Bermuda has arrived' with letters and papers to the 8tli ult. A private letter from St. John's, New Brunswick, of the 1st nit. states, that tbe American General Harrison, and 300 men, had been taken prisoners, and that the whole of bis army, about 4000 in number, were surrounded, and expected to surrender. Reinforcements of regu- lar troops, and a large body of seamen, to ac t under Sir J. Yeo, lmd arrived at Montreal, and set off for the Lakes. A strong expedition under Sir J. B. War- run was preparing nt Bermuda, supposed lo be des- tined against Baltimore, or according to other ac- counts against New York. It was expected to sail about the 8th tilt. The skill aud intrepidity so finely displayed ill the late capture of the Chesapeake American frigate, have met with the reward they w; re so justly entitled to : Lord Melville has, as a mark of his high estima- tion of the conduct of the officers of tbe Sharnon, promoted the surviving Lieutenants to the rank of Conimnnders, and the Midshipmen, who so ably fol- lowed the orders of their gallant Captain, to succeed to their situations as Lieutenants of that ship. Captain Laurence, of the Chesapeake, died of his wounds. The respect due to a brave enemy was shewn to his remains. The corpse was lauded from the Chesapeake under a discharge of minnte guns— the American ensign was spread as a pall over the coffin, on which was placed the sword of the deceased; six Captains of the Navy officiated as pall- bearers— six companies ot the 64th regiment, commanded by Sir Jon Wardlow, preceded the corpse— the Officers of the Chesapeake follo wed it as mourners— the Offi- cers of the Navy generally attended— Sir Thos. Sau- niarez, the Staff, aud Officers of the garrison ; and the procession was closed by a number of respectable inhabitants. The fnneral service was performed by the Rev. Rector of St. Paul's, and three vollies dis- charged by the troops over his grave. A great number of vessels and boats of every de- scription, tilled with spectators, were cruizing near Boston ; Captain Laurence informed the inhabitants of that town, they might expect his return to the har- bour in about two hours and a half from the time of his departure, with the Shannon, which he had no doubt of capturing, and desired a sumptuous dinner might be prepared for himself and crew 1 Captain Broke, who so nobly distinguished him- self in the capture of the Chesapeake, is the eldest son of the late Philip Bowes Broke, of Broke's Hall, Nacton, Suffolk, Esq. Lieutenant Colonel Broke, A. Q. M. G. 4th division of the British Army in Portu- gal, ot whom honourable mention is made by Field Marshal Wellington in his late dispatches, is brother to the Captain of the Shannon. FIRE AT WOOLWICH. — Between seven and eight o'clock on Thursday morning the inhabitants of Woo - wieh were thrown into consternation in consequencle of prodigious volumes of smoke which enveloped the whole town. It was soon discovered that the white hemp store- house, iu the rope- yard, was on fire. Tbe alarm immediately spread, and the engines were quickly on the spot. The drums beat to arms, and upwards of 1000 artillerymen from the barracks ar- rived to assist in qiieuching the flames: but notwith- standing the most prompt and active exertions, the fire continued to burn with irresistible rapidity till about nine o'clock, when the roof of this part of the building fell in For some time great apprehensions were felt for the safety of the adjoiuiug buildings of the Royal Arsenal; but by the prompt. supply of water and the great exertions of the military, the flames were prevented from spreading, and were got under about 10 o'clock. The greatest intrepidity was evinccd by the artillerymen, many of whom were placed in the most perilous situations in endeavouring to sabdue the flames. The damage done must have beeu considerable, and it is supposed that several thousand pounds worth of hemp and oakum have been destroyed. The cause ofthe fire has not yet been discovered, though various conjectures are afloat as to its origin. It is only a few months ago since a fire happened in another part of the buildings. It has been conjectured that the fire- works exhibited the evening before may have been the accidental cause of . the calamity. EAST- INDIA HOUSE, JULY 12, 1813.

" In a very modest preface, Mr. Enfield observes ' tbat the editor of such a work as this has little to do but to familiarize the mind to knowledge already ex- tant, and to endeavour by a lucid arrangement of the materials of bis predecessors, to smooth the. path of science.' Humble as such pretensions are, the task is one which requires the exercise both of considerable judgment and of gieat industry; and it is but common justice to say, that Mr. Enfield has displayed both in the compilation and arrangement of the useful little volume before us."— Anti- Jacobin Review, Aug. 1807.

The following bulletin was yesterday issued from the War Department: — " By letters wlu- h have been received at this Office, it is known that the allied troops commanded by Sir John Murray, which hail embarked at Alirantin the list day., of May, were landed on the 3d of June near S- » lon, ami immediately invested Tarragona.— Lieut.- Colonel Prevosi had been previously detached with the. 2' 1 battalion 67th, and a part ol Kobe's and ol Dil- lon's reels, to a'tack the Fort of St. Philip upon the Col de . Bidaqner. He was there joined by a brigade from the Catalan army. C plain Adam- commanded the squadron sent out to co- operate with Col. Pre- vo » t; ami ,- iie great exertions of the troops and sea- men employed upon this Service, under the direction ol vfiy able officers, overcame the difficulties pre- unied by the situation of the fort, and obliged the > amson to surrender on the morning of the 7th.— Lieut Debitie, of Dillon's reg. and ore Spanish offi- cer we- ie killed, as were six soldiers, and 37 wounded. — T: i ihe me ill lime. Sir J. Murray had comnienred the s; ege of Tarragona; but having intelligence upon t.- e 19th, that a strong body ol Fremiti troops had advanced from the side of Barcelona towards Villa Franca and Vendrill, and likewise lhat Marshal Su- chet was upon his march from Valencia, SirJ. Mur riy resolved to raise the siege, and the troops were embarked immediately without any U> 6s ol them; lm' they wcie obliged to leive in Ihe advanced batte- ries some pieces of heavy oidnaiirt, of which the car- riages were burnt." Ttie G. zette of last night contains Captain Adajn's account of tbe capture of tie Col'le Balagner. The co- operation of that brave officer w as admirable, aud jt w as altogether a most gallari'f'cntefpi'ige. It is icported that a vessel jii^ iyed at Dartmouth, after a very short passage front 8v Aiider. bringing ine intelligence of Sir Thomas Graham, who had hem de- tached to Toloso, which he entered. on the 25th, having passed the Bidassoa, pursued the enemy into France, and taken the town of St. Jean de Luz. Palis papers to the 9th iust. came to hand last night. The JMonitcur of the 6ih contains a dispatch fiom Bonaparte, which announces that the Austrian Mini, ter of State, Coiiut Mettcnicli, had arrived at Dresden, and already had several conferences with tin- French Minister Maret. Preparations appear to be at length making for assembling the proposed Con press, at which most of the principal Functionaries of State of Austiia will assist. From the mention that is in, oh in some articles iu these papers, we have no doubt of lb • Emptror cf Russia and the King ot Piu « s: a having had interviews with the Emperor of Austria, iu Boh. mid. Tbe two former passed some day in that kingdom, and had returned lo Silesia.— The Emperor Alexander was, during his visit, accom- panied by several of his Ministers. The Eupeior of Austria has five 1 hi- residence . it Ko- inanos ; and an article from Pr. gue - ays, that the Austrian Court is exper'ed to tuake a long stay ilrUoheinia.— Napoleon continues his military preparations with ill' leased activity iuall directions; and iiie Weroy of Laly is about to reoaii to the army in that quarter, oiohahlv for the purpose of putting it in motion towards the Austriau fromiers. The Monittur contains another tirade against the British Goveriiiuent, upon the sub- ject of the affairs of Sicily: From Copenhagen it is state! that a change of Ministry is spoken of as likely to take place at the Danish Comt. Bonaparte has vnstured ^ o take an excursion of several hours' dura- tion iu the environs of Dresden.— Ttie reports ofthe death of the Emperor of Austria and of Bcithicr prove to be utterly unfounded. The Journal de Paris, of the 5> d inst. contains an article dated from Perpignan, on 24th June, asserting that intelligence had arrived thereof the defeat of Sir J. Murray's troops near Tarragon a. lie - disembarked, it is said, w ith 13 000 infantry, and 300 horse, at Cape Salon, in the neighbourhood of that fortress; and after an ineffectual attempt to carry the place by storm, he w as himself attacked by a division from Barcelona, commanded by General Mattliien, and forced . o re- embark in the greatest disorder, leaving behind him between 3 aud 4t) 0 killed or wounded. Neither the Mouitear, nor the minor papers, con tain any accounts relative to the glorious battle of Vittoria. The Madrid Gazette of the 27th ult. contains Gen. Castanos's official dispatch notifying tiie great battle of Vittoria. The intelligence w as no sooner received al the Spanish Capital, than it produced She same tun st of enthusiastic joy anil exultation there as it did in this city. Illuminations look place for three suc- cc- sive nights, and bull- fights were exhibited as many days successively ; and the pioduee of the latter was divided between objects of charity, and if wards for military service: part was given lo the Hospitals, part was assigned as marriage- portions for the dangh tcrs of disabled soldiers, and part was bestowed on the most distinguished followers of the Empecinado. Clause), who turned off Irom the vicinity ot Vitto- ria, a- soou as he heard of the battle, took the road to Ttldela, probably in the hope of joining Suehet, and retreating with him hy the road that leads north- ward from Saragossa into Fiance. The Marquis of Wellington, with his elevation of military rank as Field- Marshal over all the General- in the British service, w ill, most deservedly, acquire considerable additional emolument; his pay now be- comes double that of a General, amounting to 201. per day, which the regular contingencies of the service will increase nearly as much more. A letter from an offiet r under tlie Marquis Welling- ton states that the gallant Colonel Cadogan was mor- tally wounded whilst cheering his men in a charge of the bayonet, which was continued for the space of a mile! The writer was standing near him at the time. The Court of Common Council yesterday directed tint a bust of Lord Wellington should be placed in the Council Chamber. Detachments from the 26th, 27th, 71st, 75th, 79th, 92 I, and 94th regts. of foot, amounting to about 500 men, embarked last Saturday at Leith, to join the corps to which they belong in Spain. Two Goteeuburgh mails have- furnished intelligence to the 3d iust. The papers contain two Prussian p> o- clainatious^ diiied the5th and 15th of June, from Eo- nigsberg, the one signed by Frederick William, and the other by his Miuisteis, which are not expressed in terms that indicate any approximation to peace. The French have remitted eighteen millions ofthe contribution first demanded from Hamburgh, and their claim is now reduced lo thirty millions of francs; about three millions of which sum have been pWid into the Bankers, oil French account. The accounts from Malta by the two last mailsi give reason 10 appithend the actual existence , of the plague in that island. Privau* accounts staH*, that all places of public iesort are shut up ; ami all Jnisine- s anil intercourse snspendel; even private houses being opened only tor the purpose of admitting the neces- sary articles of subsistence, which arc passed through vinegar and water befoie they aie u.- ed. No letters or papers are opene I without being picviously fumi- gated. A letter dated off Flushing, July 7th, sav « —" The enemy's ship* in Flushing came out beyond the shoals this day, aud were very near being brought to an action. The whole of our fleet ( with the Russians) eliaccd <- lo cto Thornton's Ridge; and had it not Ireen for the weather tide making ( the wind being S. E.) we should certainly have taken them. The Impreg- nable and Cornwall, with the Jsson slid brigs, ex- changed sliet with them. They have fourteen sail of tlie line, five frigates, and thirty brigs, at Flushing." ' file small vessels of the enemy have long been ac. customed to facilitate their voyages on the west coast of France, by passing through the narrow channel which separates the islands of Obcron and Rhee tiuiii tbe river, lint their coasting trade is now most ef- fectually stopped : the Clarence, ol 7- 1 gnn<, at anchor at the north entrance of the Pertuis Breton, block- ades that passage, w tiile she keeps np tbe communi- cation, by signal, with the squadron at anchor in Basque Roads. The effect of this mode of blockade, lately adopted by Admiral Durham, is sen- ibly felt throughout the coast between Bayonne and Blest. Wednesday arrived the Speedy Packet, in 21 days from Bermuda. Sir J. IS. Warren was to sail from Beiumda the day after the Speedy, with two 74' s, 4 frigates,. 5 sloops, 1 rocket ship, and 2 troop ships, with 3000 troops, including marines, for Balti- more/ with au intention of destroying it. A letter, dated from Halifax, I ltli June, notices all unlucky accident on the subject /' the action between the Shannon and the Chesapeake.—" Some minutes after the Chesapeake being in our possession, the first lieutenant, in hoisting the English colours, made a mistake, pulled the halliards the wrong way, and in consequence diew np the American flag above the British; the ships had llien parted from each other, and on this being seen ou hoard the Shannon, a broad- side w as fired, uinli r the supposl - ion lhat our board- ing part) were overpowered, which killed the lieu tenant and fiv<" of our seamen. Iri a moment the mistake w a- corrected, and the British Aug flew where it ought— over that ofthe enemy." We understand, by a letter from Halifax, that Cap- tain Broke, though severely wounded, is doing well. Lieut. Gen. Hislop ( commander- in- chief at Bom- bay) who was a passenger on board the Java frigate, - lias piesented to Capt. H. Ducie Chads an elegant sword, as a mark of high regard and admiration of the gallant conduct ef that officer in the action between the J. iva and the American ship Constitution. Accounts ware on Monday received at the Admi- ralty that tiie President frigate, Commodore Rodgers, ad put into Bergen in Norway, and after watering an I refitting had sailed from thence, with a view as w ( « supposed, to intercept some of onr Greenland fishing vessel-. Orders were immediately sent to Admiral Young, off the Scheldt, advising him of this circumstance, and directing- him to deia;, h au adequate force iu pursuit of the Alliere an Commodore. The Essex American frigate has gone round Cape Horn; her object is supposed to be to destroy the British Southern Whale Fishery. . Sir Janu s Yco, with Capts, Mult- aster, Spilshnry, England, O'Contier, 8 lieutenants, 24 midshipmen, and the party of stamen appointed to serve upon the Lakes of Canada, arrived al Quebec in the Woolwich, Capt. Snllivaii, on the 5tll May, and reached Montreal on the 10th. They expect tub. at Kingston ( which w as bei ome the plant of their fir t operations) in the sixth week from their leaving England. The partial victories of tile American ships at the commencement of hostilities ou r the British frigates are said to be attributable, in some measure, lo an improvement in their shot. The cartridge ( Instead of- being made up in canvass) is ascertained to have hern eased with lead. This enables theiii, ft seems, to load with greater dispatch, and to fire w ith addi- tional effert ; hence the destructive h ivock of then broadsides, Tie Commissioners of the Admiralty are now iu full possession of ail the circumstance , which are stated to have been communicated by a lieutenant of our navy, who lias, in consi quencc, been promoted to the command of a vessel.— Star. A meeting of the Stewards appointee, to manage the Festival at Vauxhad, in honour of ilie late gloi ions Victory, was held yesterday at theThatclted House Tavern. About 50 Noblemen and Gentlemen attend- ed.

The two tii- t of lhft. se reports give details of the operations in Catalonia to the 20th, at which time, having satisfied himself that the allied forces ( who continu d elf ihe coast on bonid Ihe flotilla, consisting of 180 vessels) meditated no further attack upon l a:. agoiia, and had resolved to blow up the fort of Balaguei, be returned to V. i! icia, in which direction he expected they would i tenipt to laud.

Iiad been deliveied to the flames.— On the night between the 20th a.. u 21st, he adds, the immense convoy, wilh the allied forces on board, had decided to quit the coast of Catalonia. We regiet to find that this object was not accomplished without some loss. Several cf the. vessels grounded npon the sands at the mouth of the Ebro, and live of them are slated to have been abandoned.— Of the battle of Vittoria, which decided the fate ofthe Peninsula, not the slightest mention is yet made by the enemy; aud strange to say, even the relre. it of Clausel, in consequence of that event, so far from being admitted to have been a measure of ne- cessity, is spoken of as a mere removal of his head- quartets, after having beaten and dispersed the bands of insurgents he met with nu his route!!! These papers contain no further dispatches from Bonaparte; bill articles from different places state, that Gotsrliin is to be the seat of the Congress about to tie assembled.; and it is added lhat a meeting ofthe belligerent inonarchs is also to take place there. An Imperial decree, elated Dresden, 3th May, 1813, orders confiscation, with expedition, against all aud evety sort of British merchandizes and colonial pro- duce which are and ma- be found in the great Duchy of Berg, in Hamburgh and Bremen, and ail towns and places adjoining. The Doiutniers lo seize all property which may Vhrtber arrive. The decree makes no dis- tinction against licensed or other ships which may have come ill auy other manner. Madrid Gazettes atrived hist night to the 23d nit. but they contain no news.

EKINUS. SPAIN. Roncevallos is a town iu the province of Navarre, in a valley to which it gives name, between Pam- plona and St. Jean Pie de Porte : 14 miles NNE. of Pamplona, and 15 SSW. al St. Jean Pie dt Porte. Pamplona, or Pampeluna, is the capital of the pro vince- of Navarre, on a plain near the Pyrenees, and w as founded by Pompey. It is well fortified, and de- fended with a citadel, the see of a bishop, suffragan of Burgos, and has an university: it contains 3 pa- rishes, 17 convents, 4 hospitals, and about 5000 inha- bitants; is 72 milesNNW. of Saragossa and 172 NNE. of Madrid. Mondragon is a town in the province of Guiposcoa, and 25 miles SSW. of St. Sebastian. Balaguer is a towniu Catalonia, on the river Segra, at the foot of a sharp hill in a fertile country, and con- tains 1 parish and 4 convents: 63 miles WNW. of Barcelona and 229 N; E- of Madrid. Orcoyen is situated not far to the SE, of Pamplona, in which 1260 men are closely besieged. Field Mar- shal Wellington was advancing tow arils Ja^ a, to in- tercept Suchet. Jaca is about 45 miles almost N. of Saragossa. Our army is marching easterly across the country almost parallel to the Pyrenees. Vittoria was founded by Saiicho, king of Castile, and so named in commemoration of a victory gained by him oyer tlie Moors. It may be worthy of remark, that'the late battle was fought nearly on the same spot with another, in which a. victory, obtained by the English, nest or ed a legitimate Sovereign to the throne of Spain. Within sight . of the enemy's positions on < lie- 2ist of June, and only a few miles higher tip the same stream, the Zadora, stands the village of Nava- rete, where, on the 3d of April, 1376, Edward tbe gallant Black Prince totally defeated Henry the Bastaud, king of France, and in consequence seated ' Don Pedro on Ihe throne - ofCastile. Froissart, who gives a lively description of the engagement, observes of S'. r John Chandos, the mostJemineut of the English :< kniglrts., that " be nt er thought during the day of waiving any pi. oOn. ers; but was solely occupied in lighting and pushing forward." The most striking passage in- his accouiltis that in wbie. lt lie describes the approaeh- of the two armies towards each Other; when •' a little before they met, the Prince of Wales, with eyes and hands '. uplifted towards Heaven, ex- claimed, ' God ef Troth, the Father of Jesus Christ, who hast made and fashioned me, grant, through thy < benign grace, that the success'- of this battle may be for me and my anny; for thou knowest, that in truth ' I have been solely emboldened to undertake it, in < the support of justice arid reason, to reinstate this ' King upon his throne, who hath been disinherited ' anil driven from it, as well as from his country.'— This zeslous prayer was immediately followed by the onset, the Prince crying aloud, ' Advance Banners, ' in the name of God and St. George.'" " At the commencement ofthe action," says the old historian, " the French and Arragonians made a desperate re- sistance, and gave the good Knights of England much trouble; but at last, when all the divisions- of the Prince were formed fnt- o one large body, the enemy could no longer keep their ground, but began to fly iu great disorder; aud Henry ( the Usurper) perceiving his army defeated, without hope of recovery, called for his borse, mounted it, and galloped off among the runaways. The English pursued them through the town of Najara, where they gained considerable plun- der, for King Henry and his army had come thither with much splendour; and, after the defeat, they had not leisure to return, to place in security what they had left behind them in the morning." Extract of a private letter, dated Cainp, near Pamplona, June 25.— " You will mo doubt have lull and most satisfactory accounts of tlie battle cf Vit- toria, the most glorious for Old England, and yielding to none in the most brilliant pages of the annals ofour country. The grandeur of the whole vvas beyond ex- pression— the two armies drawn up in fare of each other, the French occupied a large plain in front of Vittoria, and had posts on two ridges of hills that flanked it on the right and left. From an early hour in the morning till the middle of the day w e continued to drive the French army steadily, though slowly, belore us, from village to village, from woods and heights. It w as for a long time an affair of artillery, in which Bonaparte always musters very strongly, and they aunoyed us much oil the 21st and before ours could be made to tell on them.— At length the third division was brought to In ar on the French line : tbe contest was sharp, but not long— they broke it. The French, who know this division full well, cried out, it was " e'est la division de Ficton," and they retreated w ith the greatest speed, leaving their guns. The gal- lant Hussar Brigade came up, chased their rear- guard, and secured, as a prize, their whole artillery, great part ofthe baggage of Ihe army, and the carriages and wine of the French Officers. The Portuguese troops have of late often behaved like good soldiers, but never villi such distinguished gallantry as on this occasion; their line, and the firmness with which it advanced, was the admiration of the whole army. You will, 1 know, be glad to hear that, in the battle of the 21sf, the Spanish division, under General Mttrillos, behaved very well. We have to regret the loss of some brave Officers. The Hon. Colonel Cadogan, a relation of the Marquis's, has often distinguished himself in the command of the 7ist Highlanders, in South America and in this country. Colonel Grant was a most gal- lant old soldier, and respected by the whole army. He had often distinguished himself in India; his gal- lant conduct in front of Gibraltar saved the remainder of the little army there, when General Lord Blaney • was taken by the enemy. The Marquis of Tweedale was wounded slightly, and for a short time in posses- sion of the enemy, but got olf from them. As usual, our illustrious Chief was in the heart of the shot. Marshal Beresford bad a bullet brush his cockade, • when near the Marquis. The enemy made a despe- rate attempt to turn upon lis and retake their car- riages, baggage, & e. aud endeavoured to get into the town ; but tbe inhabitants seeing this, several of them got firelocks, and, from- the walls of Vittoria threaten- ed to fire on the French if they. attempted to push in. The plunder made by some men is enormous : a drum- mer got £ 1500 in gold, and several dragoons are very rich in money and jewels." BALANCE OF POWER. While a General Congress of the European Powers is talked of, it is of particular importance for politi- cians to consider whit may he the objects for which the States opposed to France will have to contend at a General Congress; and how those objects maybe best attained. The grand end at which all are aim- ing, either is, or is said to be, a general and perma- nent peace ; and how any other peace than one found- ed on an equipoise of power, ( except it be a peace of general am! downright slavery) can be considered as likely to be permanent, it is not easy to devise. Au appropriate title, therefore, lo an interesting pamphlet ou this subject, is, " The re establishment of ail ef- fective balance of power, the only solid basis of a ge- neral and permanent peace." The Author's other positions, in the body of the work, are as little liable to subversion ; the chief of which is, " that the exten- sion of the boundaries of the French Empire beyond the Rhine and Pyrenees is incompatible with the liberties of Europe." If this principle be incontro- vertible, as we believe it is, a declaration to this ef- fect, by tin Sovereigns of Europe, would placeFrance, if she did not acquiesce in the reduction ofliey power to file prescribed bounds, in tbe acknowledged and avowed situation of contending to enslave the Other nations of Europe. . The w ork closes with these remarks Upon Hie pre- sent crisis : — " Should the armistice lead to a negociatioh, a ' ge- neral, and not a continental peace, should be its only object. The Maritime Powers, instead of manifest- ing a jealousy of the maritime supremacy of Great Britain, should zealously uphold those principles to which her naval grandeur is chiefly to be ascribed. If those principles were abandoned, the Maritime States of the Continent would be unbenefifted hy the sacrifice: whilst their firm and unshaken assertion, by maintaining the naval superiority ofGreat Britain, enables her effectually to oppose and chastise the am- bition of France, and to provide, by this just and equitable exercise of power, for the greater security and independence of the Continent. If the maritime greatness ofthis country had been extinguished in tlie course of the revolutionary war, would there at this time have been one free and independent State in Europe ?— Would not the whole have Iain prostrate at the feet of France? The obvious answer. to this question is alone sufficient to demonstrate the narrow- ness of that jealousy With which States, which, be- sides, are rather military than naval, view the maritime pre- eminence of England, notwithstanding it is to that preponderance alone that they are, in a great measure, indebted for the means of opposing a success- ful resistance to French aggression. " Equally animated by a desire to conebide a per- manent and honourable peace, the Allies cannot ma- nifest too much promptitude to bring to a happy ter-' mination the countless miseries of this protracted war: but if it be closed, without that indispensable guarantee for the continuance of peace, which is to be found only in the re- establishment of an effective balance of power, the sanguinary conflict will be re- newed with aggravated violence and fury; and afflict- ed Europe will bleed afresh at every pore.'* THE NAVY. A pamphlet has been recently published by Captain Layman, of the navy, which contains a great deal of valuable information relative to the present state and future preservation of our marine establishment, on which the most vital interests of tlie country essentially depend. The author fust considers the home supply of timber. This is a point of great importance; for, unless the home supply for Ihe material of the navy is rendered equal, or nearly equal, to the demand, the permanence of the British marine must depend on tbe state ofour relations with foreign powers. But it is Certain that the consumption of timber in the royal navy, exclusively of that for private use, is infinitely beyond the supply, or even the present possible supply of timber of English growth. The author thinks that in tbe deficiency of timber of native growth, the best auxiliary source of supply exists in the dominions of the East- India Company. Tbe teak of India seems un- rivalled in durability, when applied to maritime pur- poses: " I have examined ( says the author) the timbers of a ship built at Snrat, which were as sound as Ihe day she was launched, although it was upwards of 90 years before. And when I was last at Bombay, the East- India Company had a very good and perfectly sound vessel in their marine, which had been 50 years em- ployed as a cruiser. The Swallow packet was also built at Bombay, and after 26 years'service between England and India, was purchased by Government for a sloop of war, being valued on survey at 10s. per ton more thaua Thames- built ship only two years old ; and it is well known that the Britannia Indiaman, built at Bombay about the same period, made nine voyages to and from India, exclusive ofhaving been employed in expeditions, and received no repair till the 20th year. And if proper methods weie adopted to bring the re- sources of that country into action, not only timber, but hemp, tar, dainma, which ( mixed with oil, is more adhesive than pitch) might be obtained in consi- derable quantities, exclusive of furnishing the means to keep 74 gun ships'constantly building at Bombay." No one who speculates on the probabilities of the future, can doubt but that we shall have once more to contend with France for the sovereignty of the ocean. Bonaparte, according to our author, has at present— " SIXTY- five fast sailing ships of the line ready to start, and near forty in a state of great forwardness; the three- deckers discharging equal to 30701bs. ( English) of shotat a momentum or power of discharge of 5,047,442, and carrying the lower- deck ports six feet above the water, with a complement of 1000 men, & c. whilst the English flag- ship Impenetrable, off the Scheldt, and probably the only three- decker on that station, discharges but 2,512lbs. of shot at a momentum of 3,991,200, and with a complement of only 743 men ; the lower- deck ports are only about two- thirds the height of the French ships above the water. Tbe French tvfo- deckers ( anil we may presume those of America will not be of less force) discharge 2,141 lbs. of shot at a momentum of 3,333,530, which is a grea- ter power even than oor first- rate the Victory, if armed j as per old establishment. To oppose such powerful | machines, we certainly have not at present ships of j any thing like proportionate force." Friday a Court of Common Council was held at I Guildhall, for the purpose of moving an Address to ' the Prince Regent, on the late splendid victory at- chieved by the Marquis of Wellington.— Mr. Bell opened the business, and concluded by moving, " That, a loyal Address be presented to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, on the great and memorable Victory obtaiaed over the French army near Vittoria, on the 21st of June, by Field Marshal the Marquis Wellington, and the Allied Army under his command." — The motion was carried nem. dis.— A Committee was then appointed to draw up the Address, and having returned with the same, it was agreed to, and ordered to be presented by the City Officers. According to an order issued from the Office of the Commander in Chief, in all regiments of infantry, whose services are not subject to limitation, the pay of the Serjeant- Major is to be raised to three shillings per day, and the pay of one Serjeant in each company of battalions of the above description to two shillings and four pence per day, and the said Serjeains are to be distinguished by an honourable badge. The expence of lighting the front of Somerset House alone, for three nights during the illuminations, aniouuted to near 3,0001. QUEEN OF PICILY. The following has beeu published as a copy of a letter w ritten by the Queen of Sicily to Lord Ben- tinek, in consequence of the failure of the late attempt to recover lier influence in the island, under pretence of re- establishing her husband on the throne : — " LORD BENTINCK,— Notwithstanding the present extraordinary and irregular proceeding of your Court, to force me, the Queen ofthe Two Sicilies, by birth Archduchess of Austria, to abandon, after an union of forty- five years, the King my spouse and my fami- ly, to retire into my native country, under the spe- cious hut false pretexts— sometimes of my pretended correspondence with the common enemy ( anatiocipus calumny! of which I defy anyone to bring the slight- est valid proof), and sometimes the violent propensi- ty I betrayed, as it is said, to create obstacles to the project cf the English Government, to change the constitution under which Sicily has existed so many ages : notwithstanding, I am very far from acknow- ledging the authority of the British Government, of which God has rendered me quite independent by birth, I do not feel less the necessity of submitting to the order it prescribes; since this submission appears the only means of preserving the interests of my fa- mily, to which having devoted myself, dfiring the whole of my toilsome career, I do not hesitate to make this last sacrifice, though it may perhaps cost me my life. " I declare then to yon, my Lord, and through you to your Court, that to this consideration only, and not. to any other, I yield,— and I am ready to set out towards the end of the present month, to return to tbe dominions of the Emperor of Austria, my august kinsman and nephew. " I must decline going to Sardinia, as I do not choose to be Separated from every branchof'tny family, and as, at my time of life, the separation must be expected to be final: I wish likewise to avoid dying in a foreign land. " I wish that, in making the arrangements for my return to my native country, the voyafce may be ren- dered as short and as little toilsome as Vossible : my age, and my hc. iith, destroyed by twenty years of pains, ofchagrins, and of persecutions of every kind, do not leave me the hope of terminating this journey. " In submitting to this act of violence, as I cannot nor might not to forget what is due to my birth and rank, 1 demand, I claim the previous execution of the following conditions; and I am persuaded, my Lord, that you will both consent and hasten the ful- filment of tbeuis 1. " That ar, arrangement shall be made to secure to my creditors payment of their demands, not being willing to quit Sicily, and fail in so sacred a duty. I demand also, thai measures shall be taken for the restitution of niy. diamonds, which are deposited in the bank of Palermo. 2. " That there shall be delivered to me, as soon as possible, a sum equal to the expences of a journey so long and so remote as I shall be compelled to undertake, with a retinue befitting the rank ill which Providence has placed me. 3. " That there shall be secured to me a som suffi- cient to sustain this ranK in the country to which I shall retire,. Htid lhat it shall be paid every six months in advance. 4. " - That permission to depart shall he granted to every person whom I may be willing to attach to my service, and to that of my son Leopold, w ho accom- panies his unfoitunate mother; and that those who receive pay from me, or pensions from the Sicilian Government, shall receive an assurance tbat they shall be transmitted wherever I may reside. 5. " Lastly, that there shall be placed at my dispo- sition, a frigate belonging to the King, » corvette, and the necessary transports, on board which my re- tinne and my equipage may be embarked : and I re- quest to have the appointment of the captain of the frigate, for my particular tranquillity, being m great dread or travelling by sea. " I ' ave reason to believe, my Lord, that you will find nothing but what is reasonable and convenient in my demands, the execution of which is - indispensible lo a Journey as long as it is toilsome, and to which your Government - compels me. Your instructions, according to my information from England, are to make tfte" 6f your influence over the Sicilian Govern- ment, to dispCse it to make all necessary and conve- nient arrangements which may be required. If you have hitherto demonstrated extreme perseverance and firmness in ' obliging me to make a sacrifice of my existence, I have reason ta hope, my Lord, t'. at without you depart from the orders of your Court, you will maintain the same character in order to insure the last days of a Princess, the victim ot all kinds of misfortunes, and to Whom your Government, and the English nation itself, will, one day or other, render the justice that she merits. " I transmit yon this letter by the hands Of General Maefarlane, to whom I owe infinite gratitude and thanks for tiie delicate manner in which he has borne himself towards me, and which makes ine desirous of continuing to receive through him, any farther expla- nations ofthis painful affair. " I beg yon will offer my compliments to Lady Bentinck, whose feeling heart, lam persuaded, par- ticipates and deplores my unmerited sufferings. " April, 1813." THE SHANNON FRIGATE. Extract of a letter from anon- commissioned officer on board the Shannon, to his wife residing in Bath: —" Before you receive this you will, no doubt, have heard that we have made liars of one- half of the naval characters in England, who have repeatedly said that our frigates were not able to stand a contest with the Americans. When we first went off Boston, we chal- lenged Commodore Rodger.*, of the President, but he escaped us in a fog. We went into their harbour and braved this Chesapeake frigate, commanded by one of their best officers, who, like a brave fellow, came out, attended by hundreds of spectators in boats to witness the action. We never fired a shot till we could fling a biscuit otl board each other; then we made the first fire, aud in ten minutes I had the plea- sure of seeing our ensign waving over the A'an key 1 In that short time we killed and wounded near 200 of his men ! We have lost only 80, but I am sorry to say that some of our best men, if it be possible to make any distinction, are amongst them. Ottr cap- tain headed the boarders— his words were " Follow me Shannons!" He is badly wounded, but we are in hepes that he will live to receive the honor he merits. Lieut. Falkner behaved like a hero : in the midst of shot, blood, aud brains, he was as cool and temperate assn old warrior. Lieut. Watt being killed, he had the honor of bringing in the Chesapeake, In the an- nals ofour naval history you will never find an action to equal ours, fought in the enemy's own harbour : if we had got dismasted their gun- boats must have taken us You would have, laughed to see how the boats and small vessels ran in shore when they found us the conquerors!— 300 men killed and wounded iu ten minutes! was not that sharp work? Tell William I have got Capt. Laurence's fighting sword for him, but be must get stronger and older before he will be able to draw it; and tell George that I have got the fiist Lieutenant's sword for him. " JUNE 10.— We are this moment safely arrived at Halifax with the Chesapeake. The people here are exulting about this victory of our's, and would give us gold could we eat it: they illuminated the town for tw o nights. Capt. Broke is going to challenge the Constitution the moment he recovers, and the American Commodore will accept it.— A public din- ner, to be given on Saturday by the merchants and gentlemen of Halifax, is to be honoured by the pre- sence of every one within 30 miles. Sir John Coope Sherbrooke, the governor, and ihe Hon. Capt. Cape! are to attend she dinner." The Prince Regent's letter to the Marquis of Wel- lington, on the occasion of the victory of Vittoria, begins with congratulations and thanks lor the truly brilliant and complete victory which the gallant Mar- quis has recently achieved. It acknowledges in very forcible language, how deeply both his Royal Highness and the country are indebted for his many and most important services, and laments the inability of both to requite them by anything like an adequate reward. In return for tho'batim of a Marshal of France, which his Lordship has'sent him, his Royal Highness sends Lord W. thebatdn of a Marshal of England, which is all that is in his power. This his Royal Highness ac- companies with his most devout prayers, that the Noble Marquis may continue in the uninterrupted enjoyment of health and prosperity; and that he may still reap a richer harvest of laurels, under the shade of whlchhis Royal Higliliesstiopes he may long enjoy that glory which he has so nobly acquired for himself, and which he has so large'lv shed on the arms and the military character of the'nation. The letter concludes With tbe most marked expressions of personal friend- ship an des tend. The Prince Regent has, it said, projected a grand National Fete in honour of the battle of Vittoria. It is to be held at VauSihall Gardens, as the only place capable of eutertamin£ the numbers that will certain- ly be assembled. It is to consist of a dinner, at which the Duke of York is to preside as chairman; and there will be at least 100 stewards selected from all ranks— princes, nobles, military and naval officers, civilians, merchants, See. Sec. so as to represent the whole community of England ; and, it is thought, the Prince Regent may himself be present as a guest. The tickets to be at a price which shall at once make it numerous anil select, and in the evening ladie3 are to be introduced by tickets, when an ode to Victory, to be written for the occasion, will be performed by all our most distinguished artists; and the whole to conclude with a ball. The Hindoos believe not only in a future but in a prior state of existence ; and the particulars of this doctrine seem to be nearly as follows :— That man is born into this world seven times as a man.— That ac- cording to his conduct in each state of existence is his birth, fortune, Sec. in the succeeding one—( hence the distinction of castes.) That when good men are entirely purified fioin all imperfection, they no lon- ger are detained in tire sea of mortal existence, but are transferred to different degrees of bliss, and finally absorbed into the infinite ocean of eternal life, God: — while bad souls are sent to do further penance on earth in the bodies of jackalls, crows, pigs, See. or sometimes of daemons, Thursday the remains of Mr. Huntingdon were re- moved from Tunbridge- Wells, and interred at Lewes, in a vault at the west end of the Jiteh Chapel. Lady Sanderson and her two daughters, with the children of the deceased by a former wife, were tlie chief mourners, A stone, at the head of his grave, exhibits the following epitaph, dictated by himself a few days prior to his death;— " Here lies the COAL HEAVER ; who departed this life July 1,1813, in the 60th year ofhis age, beloved ofhis God, but abhorred of Men. Tbe ommiicient Judge at the Grand Assize shall ratify and confirm this to the confession of thousands; for England aud its metropolis shall know that there has beeu a PROPIIK''' among them. W. H. S. S." A duel took place on Friday, near Carisbrooke, in the Isle of Wight, between Lieut. Blundell and Lieut. M'Gregor, of the 101st regiment, in which the former received a wound, which is considered likely to prove fatal to him. Lieut. Blundell was lately married to the daughter of H. White, Esq. of Portsmouth ; and • what is remarkable, his adversary in this unfortunate dispute, gave the lady away. The following are signal examples of the reality of modern cattle improvement:— Mr. Champion, of Notts, is in the habit of fattening his two- year old steers of the Duiham breed. He sold last year ten from his stock, in a store state, which from their computed weight of 52 stones each. 1411). to the stone, fetched 221. each. They were fattened, and sold st Smithfii- ld in April", at 431 each, in a declin- ing market, leaving a surplus on the prime cost of 1701. and a quantity of valuable manure. The young- est steer was only two years and six months old, and weighed 72 stone. From the dearncss of oil cake, Mr. Champion feeds generally with Swedish turnip and hay, a practice which, it is much to be wished, may supersede oil cake, an article that produces a rank, loose, and greasy meat. No less improvement has taken place in the breed and management of sheep, which are now brought to market fully ripe, at a period formerly thought too early for tlieni to take on any considerable degree of fat. The same gentleman and others have brought to market new Leicestershire sheep, at 14 aud 15 months old, wei. hing 24lb. per qilarter and upwards, obtaining from 71s. to 41. per head, new shorn, exclusi » e of the fleeces, worth from 8s. to 10s. each. It may be urged, this is a coarse kind ofnmtton, but the argument is unanswerable, that it has never yet failed of a ready sale in the markets. Last week a man was convicted at Wellington, in the mitigated penalty of 201. for letting tythes by auction without a licence. At PortsmoutliQuartrr Sessions, which commenced on Thursday, Martha Chamberlain, a diabolical wretch of the first magnitude, who resides in Love- lane, Portsea, was convicted of Fortune Telling; and the case exhibited depravity and ignorance iu their most pernicious forms. The prosecutor was a poor silly servant girl, who, though residing at Gosport, heard of'the fame of tbe divineress, and came thence to obtain that knowledge from her which is wrapt in impenetrable darkness from common minds; for which she paid three- pence. The girl went a second lime, to have a particular question solved, when the hag suspended the bible to a key, ancl as it turned, she told the girl it was in her favour !— She therefore desired her to leave her mistress, and come aud live with her, until the Captain, who was to marry her, came back from London! The gitldidas she told her, but she had not lived many days with the wretch, when she prevailed on her to give herself up to pros- titution ; and in this course of life she continued five months, when she became the subject of misery and of pity. This was one of the several similar cases which the Court heard with horror and indignation. She was sentenced to the extremest punishment the law inflicts, namely, to be imprisoned twelve months, and to stand in the pillory once in each quarter during Iter confinement. A horrid murder was committed on the body of Robert Fountain, a gardener of Waltham, on Thurs- day ihe lst inst. hy Azubah Fountain, his wife, and George T. Rowell, a cooper, who lodged at the house of Fountain. The following particulars transpired before the Coroner and Jury, after a long investiga- tion:— That the deceased being suspicions of a cri- minal connexion between Rowell and his wife, was so distracted iu mind as frequently to get intoxicated; tbat about two months ago it was agreed to take away his life by poison; and a favourable opportunity ap- pearing on Wednesday evening the 30th nit. they gave him four ounces of laudanum in ale and elder berry wine; that quantity however not appearing to have the desired effect, they gave him eight ounces more the next day, which, according to the opinion of Drs. Bell and Foreman, who opened his body, caused his death. Mr. Bennet, druggist, of Grimsby, also attended before the coroner, and clearly recol- lected Rowefl's purchasing a quantity ot laudanum of him; added to which evidence, the jury had tbe con- fession of the wretched man, and brought in a verdict of wilful murder against her and Rowell, and they have both been committed to Lincoln Castle to take their trial at the ensuing assizes. Mr. Powell, who shot tlie- late Lord Fnlklmd in a duel, was killed a few days ago by a fall - fioni his horse, near Worwcll, in Hampshire. Hampshire Society for the Education of Ihe Infant Poor, on the plan of Fjr. Bell.— The anniversary meet- ing of this society was lioldcti at Winchester on the 28th ult. A most numerous congregation assembled at the Cathedral, where a sermon was preached from Gal. vi. 7. " Whatsoever a man soweth, that shajl he also reap," by the Rev. Dr. Rennell, Dean of Win- chester; who, iu a forcible manner, described the dire efleets of irreligion on tfie human mind ; and, to shew the superiority of Dr: Bell's over Mr. Lancaster's plan, observed " without religion- instruction, in- crease of knowledge does but fuviiisli more ample powers of working evil." The collection at the Church doors amounted to upwards of 451. A public examination afterwards took place iu the . school, highly gratifying to the numerous and distinguished persons present, among whom were the Lord Lieute- nant of the County, the Lord Bishop of Glocester, the Marchioness of Buckingham, Sir Wm. Heathcote, Bart. & c. many of the Vice Presidents, as weil as the Members of the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Commit- tee, Sec. Sec. A substantial dinner of Old English fare, roast beef and plum pud ling, w as provided for the children, and a present of a new six- penny piece, the very liberal donation of Nat. Achesoip' Esq. was given to each of them. The friends of the.' in'stitiition afterwards dined together at the White Hart Inu. An unaffected cheerfulness, and a spirit of Christian benevolence, blended with the most perfect decorum, characterized the whole proceedings of the day. DUULIN, July 8.— Our cily was most splendidly illuminated last night in honour of Hit glorious vic- tory obtained by Lord Wellington : the Lord Mayor, and Sheriff Studart, walking as private gentlemen, were most outrageously insulted by a mob, who called them Orange villains, upbraided the Loid Mayor with having presented a petition against the Catholic Claims, and finally assailed him and the Sueriff with showers of stones and dirt. They staved several hog- sheads of pot ter, which liis Lordship had liberally ordered out for the multitude, and tore asunder the pitch barrels, though on fire, flinging burning brands at the Mansion- house : they were, nt length, dispersed by some cavalry, but not before they bail broken se- veral ofhis Lor- lship's windows. Some of the rioters are lodged in Newgate. FORTUNATE INTREPIDITY.— The Edward, Geo. Germaine, master, from Jamaica to Bristol, was run foul of early in June by a large ship bound to Lon- don, which caused her so much damage that great part of her crew left her, and Mr. Germaine was ad- vised by the Commodore to abantlon and leave her to fate— as all who saw her thought tbat she conld not possibly be kept up. Mr. G. however, refused to abantlon his charge, determining fo sink or swim with bis vessel; and though under jury masts, the Ed- ward was the first of the fleet that arrived!— Surely such conduct well merits reward; and we hope the under- writers will shew their sense of it in a way that may induce others to imitate such intrepid conduct: for had Ihe Edward beeu abandoned, the loss would have been not less than 40,0001. BATH RACES.— Wednesday, the Sweepstakes of 5gs. with 501. added from the racing fund, was won by Mr. Hallett's Calebs, beating three others. Same day, a 501- plate given by tlfe Members for ihe Coun- ty, was won by Mr. Mills's Jesse, beating Mr. Cox's Coker.— Thursday, the Bristol Gold Cup with 5fgs. added, was won by Mr. Biggs's Demetrius, heating Mr, Smith's Crossbow, and Mr H. Lippincott's Beverley. Same day. a 501. plate, given by the Members for the city, won by Mr. Mills'* Jesse, beating Mr, Biggs'j Hereford.— Friday, the Handicap Sweepstakes of 501. won by Sir H. Lippincott's Beverley, beating Ceclebs, Crossbow, and Beresford.— The pickpockets were ve- ry active npon the Down ; but the vigilance of the officers kept pace with them, aud succeeded in ap- prehending the n'ded William Frown, with a compa nion of the name of Thomas. They were detected in robbing Ihe Hon. Robert Kennedy, and after under- going an examination at the Guildhall, on Thursday, were fully committed for trial. BANKRUPTS FKOJI SATURDAY'S OAZHTTE.
