The Princess Charlotte packet, Captain White, arrived at Falmouth on Saturday last, in nine days from Passages, having- carried out the duke of Angoulesme, who had joined Lord Wellington, at his head- quarters, St. Jean de Luz. The low and deep roads in that quarter had been so deluged w ith rains, as^ o render them impassible ; and pre- vented any general movement. We have the authority of , i very respectable officer for stating, that our army is in good health, and amounts to 45,000 British effectives and about 30,000 Portuguese, exclusive of the Spaniards.— The • Spanish papers report the return to Madrid of PalafoX, the '; ero of Saragossa, and that King Ferdinand VII. was ex- pected. The obvious intention of the French Ruler in this courtesy, and the treaty of Peace which he is said to have imposed upon Ferdinand, is to get rid of the English army, now that he can no longer spare the troops necessary to hold it in check. The Count de Viel Castel, stated in the Loudon pa- pers to have arrived in England on his way- to Lord Wel- lington's head- quariers, on a mission from the Crown Prince of Sweden, sailed from Falmouth for Passages in the Princess Elizabeth packet, on Saturday last. A French gentleman passed through Exeter last Satur- day evening for London, who had been taken on board an English frigate at Quiberon, transferred to the Bloodhpund gun- brig in Mount's- bay, and landed at Plymouth. It is believed he is charged with intelligence from the friends of the Bourbons in that quarter. THE WAR IN FRANCE. The general hope and persuasion, that the great struggle for the liberties of Europe w as about to terminate speedily in complete victory and peace; has been rather damped, since our last publication, by repeated and confident claims of victory on the part of the enemy.— The following Re- ports from Bonaparte to Maria Louisa, are copied from the MoniteUr:— " Paris, Feb. 11. " The Emperor yesterday attacked, at Champaubert, the enemy consisting of twelve regiments, and having 40 pieces of cannon. The General in Chief Osouwieff has been taken, with all his Ge- nerals, all his Colonels, Officers, cannon, caissoons, and baggage. We have made 6,000 prisoners ; the remainder were driven into a morass ( etang) or killed upon the field of battle. The Emperor was briskly pursuing General Sachen, who is separated from General blucher. Our loss has been extremely light; we have not 200 men to regret. His Majesty King Joseph reviewed to- day the grenadiers of the National Guards of Paris, was pleased to communicate the news to them."— Moniteur, Feb. 12. " Paris, Fab. 12. " M. Alfred de Montesquieu, aide- de- camp to the Prince of Neuchatel, dispatched by his Majesty the Emperor, has brought to her Majesty the Empress the following news :— On the 11th of February, at day- break, the Emperor having left Champaubert after the day of the 10th, pushed a corps towards Chalons, to keep in cheek the enemy's columns, who had thrown themselves on this side. With the rest of his army he took the road to Montmirail. A league beyond he met the corps of General Blucher, and after an action of two hours, the whole of the ene- my's army was overthrown. Never did our troops display more ardour. The enemy, every where broken, is completely routed; infantry, artillery, ammunition, all is in our power, or over- thrown! The results will be immense. The Russian army is destroyed. The Emperor is extremely well, and we have lost no person of rank." " Paris, Feb. 13. " Her Majesty the Empress Queen and Regent has received the followiug accounts of the situation of the armies :— On the 12th of February, his Majesty followed up his successes. Blucher endeavoured to gain Chateau Thierry. His troops were driven from position to position ; a whole corps which had remained united, and which protected his retreats was cut off. This rear guard was comprised of four Russian battalions, three Prussian battalions,- and three pieces of cannon. The General who com- manded it was also taken. Our troops entered Chateau Thierry pell- mell with the enemy, and are pursuing on the road to Sois- sons, the wrecks of this army, which is in dreadful confusion.— The results of to- day, the 12th, are 30 pieces of cannon, and an innumerable quantity of baggage waggons. The number of pri- soners was already 3000 ; more are brought in every moment.— We have still two hours day light. Among the prisoners are five or six Generals, who are sent to Paris. It is believed that the General in Chief Sacken has been killed. ( Moniteur, Feb. 14.) The Paris papers describe in glowing colours the joy dif- fused throughout France by the news of these victories, and ( what is their chief aim) their effect in " exciting the courage of all Frenchmen to march to the armies to defend the country and the Government," Their funds are stated to have risen on the 12th, to 57 at the opening, but closed at 5 If. 25c. Oil Friday last a fourth victory over the Allies was an- nounced in Loudon by a French Bulletin, received at Do- ver from Boulogne, of which the following is a translation:— " Boulogne, 16th Feb. TELEGRAPH.— LINE OF BOULOGNE. The Director of the Telegraph, to M. Martin, Commisary Ge- neral of the . Police, on the coast of the North. " SIR.— The Telegraph has just transmitted the following : — " On the 15th the Emperor obtained a fresh victory over the Russians and Prussians, near Montmirail, and has taken 10 pieces of cannon, 10 stand of ' colours, and 10,000 men prisoners. " I have the honour to be, & C. " NAGUER." We have nothing to oppose to these statements but our experience of the audacious falsehood which has ever cha- racterised the boasts of the Tyrant, and the obvious neces- sity for his operating on the credulity of the French people under the circumstances in which he now finds himself.— To do this, he has, in the above reports destroyed Marshal Blucher's army over and over again !— We remember, how he destroyed the same Blucher's array in five successive battles in Silesia ; though they afterwards crossed the Elbe, and assisted in hisfotal defeat at Leipsie. We confidently trust it Will prove, that now, as then, Blucher falls back, upon being attacked, in order to draw on his assailant, that Prince Schwartzenberg may operate more successfully on his flank.-— It appears to have been the advanced guard of Marshal Blucher's army under Gen. Sachen, which has been worsted.— The main Russian and Austrian armies were to enter Troves on the 7th, and on the 11th and 12th, it is believeds make an attack on Bonaparte ; but he being engaged on the side of Soissons, had left but few troops between Troyes and Paris.— These papers tell us that ar- tillery had been mounted on the barriers north and east, and chevaux de frise planted across the roads leading to the capital. It is also acknowledged in these papers, that Rheims ( a city of 35,000 inhabitants) had been taken by 400 Cossacks ! If the force be so contemptible, what becomes of the enthusiastic attachment to Bonaparte of the people who gave them such a city without opposition ? The Crown Prince was ^ xpected to cross the Rhine some time this week. The corps of Winziugerode and Bulow preceded him. This army will reinforce the Allies with 70,000 men. On the side of Italy, the peace concluded with Murat, has set at liberty GO, 000 Austrians under Bellegarde, which have marched for France through Piedmont; and will pro- bably co- operate with Lord W ellington across the isthmus. Private accounts are said to have reached London on Saturday, of the Allies having appeared before Paris.— We hope to receive more particulars in time for our Postscript. THE NEGOCIATIONS. With respect to the negociations, of which so much has been Said and written, and so little really known ; nothing has yet appeared that militates against, but much that, makes for, the probability we have, jso often hinted at, that they are merely designed by the Allies to gain time— to parry the constrained placability and the diplomatic intrigue of the enemy, till they shall have obtained the power and place proper for the successful developement of their plans. As to the degradation which we are told the Bri- tish nation suffers in seeing one of its Ministers of State seated at the same table, in Chatillon, with Caulincourt, the confidential agent of Bonaparte's murders ; it seems to be forgotten that the policy of necessity has compelled all the Sovereigns of the Continent to entertain, in their turns, the arch murderer himself ; and that England once entered into bonds of amity with him. The French authorities are fond of repeating to the people, and for very obvious purposes, that in the basis for negociation proposed by the Allies, they roundly declared they meant nothing against theBona- partean dynasty. But all this is said by those whose inte- rest it is to have it believed. While in no declaration that has yet been published by the Allies themselves, do we find any such assurance. They are equally silent as to Bona- partes and Bourbons. They tell us only that their great objects are the peace and independence of Europe. With whom, as on what terms, they are prudently silent. With respect to the dinners exchanged by Lord Castlereagh and Caulincoilrt, and their politeness; all this is matter of course. No man knows better than Lord Castlereagh how to make his personal feelings conform to political objects.— It is now positively said that at these dinners not a single step was taken towards negociation; and while our newspapers were speculating upon a Congress to be held at Chatillon, Lord C. left it to join the Allied Army at Troyes.— It is asserted too, that in the several councils lately held bv Minis- ters, a vigorous prosecution of the war upon the territories France, in co- operation with the Allies, was resolved upon. — A messenger ( Brown) was sent off with dispatches for Lord Castlereigh last Thursday night, in the expectation that he might find his Lordship in Paris. VARIOUS. Private letters of the 11th instant from Paris, state that the Government secretly encourages the rumours of the ap- proach of the Cossacks, hoping thereby to prepare the in- habitants for a vigorous resistance, but the same letters add, that the stupor and apathy which are so conspicuous in the Departments, also hang over the Parisians. They are al- most at the end of their miseries, and they expect the close rather with terror and depression, than with the animation which a sense of justice throws over the last scene of the falling patriot. Not a day passes, that numbers of indi- viduals, and even of families, do not contrive on various pretexts to withdraw from their residence, and seek refuge' as far as possible from the din of arms; and though in otlicr times this would be attended with difficulty, owing to the regulations of the police, it is now easily accomplished; for among other indications that the whole frame of the ty- ranny is paralysed, we may notice, that even the system of of espionage is at a stand. The Chief Officers of the Po- lice are providing for their own safety : and the common gen- d'armes are ashamed or afraid to seize deserters, or scru- tinise passports, as they used to do. It has been mentioned as a fact, that a party of young men belonging to the newly raised battalions of Bonaparte's guards availed themselves of the consternation of the moment, and having merely changed their dress, and sat off for Flanders in the Diligence as ordinary passengers, they reached their destination with- out being once asked for their passports, or interrogated as to their names and business. It has been confidently stated, that the King of Wirtem- berg has consented to let his Queen, our Princess' Royal, return to this country, and fix her future residence. It lias long been reported that the Itoyal Pair did not subsist in a state of connubial happiness, and as there is little like- lihood of a more harmonious state of affairs, it has been thought necessary, for their mutual comfort, that a separa- tion should take place. It is further saV, that the principal inducement for Lady Castlereagh to accompany his Lord- ship to the Continent, w as for the purpose of attending the Queen of Wirtemberg to this country. Sir Tho. Tyrwhitt, in soliciting his recent audience with her Majesty, is report- ed to have communicated this arrangement by desire of the Queen of Wirteinberg. The character of the latter, when Princess Royal, was so highly esteemed for the affability of her manners and the benevolence of her disposition, that the public must rejoice in seeing so amiable a Princess re- stored to her native country. ENGLISH PRISONERS in FRANCE.— On the approach of the allied powers, the prisoners from Biche ( masters of merchantmen) were marched to Sedan, handcuffed.. together two and two, with one long chain, which ran from one couple to another, through the number of twenty ; and on their arrival at Sedan had to sleep in stables, on the bare stoneS, or on damp straw in places still inferior.— The pri- soners at Longwy, of the same rank, were marched off, at a few hours notice, to Beauvais, on the 5th of Jan. whence, after remaining about ten days, they were removed to Guise, from which place they are in daily expectation of a counter- march, making the 6th depot in which these unfortunate people have been confined during their captivity in France, namely arras, Verdun, Auxonne, Longwy, Beauvais, and Guise. FATAL DUEL.— On Saturday evening, aLoiil five o'clock, a meeting took place on the strand at Sandy- mount, between Counseller Hatchell, seconded by Mr. F— y, and Mr. Morley, of Molesworth- street, an eminent Attorney, se- conded by Mr. C— y Mr. M. fired first without effect, when his fire was returned by Mr. II. and we are sorry to say, the ball hit Mr M. on the hip, took a direction through the kidneys, and killed him instantly. We have taken particular pains to inquire into the circumstances which led to this unhappy event, and we believe the following are the facts. In the hall of the Four Courts, on Saturday, Mr. M. addressed himself to Mr. II. requiring him to acknowledge that part of a trial which took place in Au- gust last, which appeared in a public print of that month, in which both parties were professionally concerned, " Was a falsehood." Mr. H. would not comply with the requisi- tion, upon which Mr. M. called Mr. II. by a very oppro- bious name, which drew from Mr.. H. a retort that Mr. M. was a liar. Mr. M. immediately struck the Barrister, and a challenge ensued. On the ground every honourable en- deavour was made to obtain an apology for the blow, but we are sorry to say in vain. As soon as the Coroner's In- quest return their verdict, Mr. H. will surrender to abide his trial.— Courier. BOXERS.— The first of gymnastics for the season will take place on Tuesday next, in a pitched battle betwixt Ford, of pugilistic celebrity, and a formidable gardener who has dealt out bruises in the county of Kent, with much success. It is a match, and also for a subscription purse of 25 guineas. The great battle between Painter, the Lancashire man, and Oliver, the Battersea gardener, now the two first on the list, will take place on Tuesday the 3d of May, on a match, and a subscription purse from the Pugilistic Club, of 50 guineas. The gardener is immediately to be put under regimen and training upon the Highlands of Scotland, under the regula- tion of Captain Barclay, Cribb's patron and trainer for the fight at Thisselton Gap. i All the Fire Offices have, it is said, refused tlje claims of the Company of Customs for the various sums insured, to the amount of more than 100,000/. on account of the three barrels of gunpowder which were kept and blown up in the Custom- house. AND FAMILY NEWSPAPER. 403 LOCAL, Sc. A crowded and highly respectable meeting, convened for the purpose of forming; a District Committee, in aid of the general designs of the Society for promoting Christian Know- ledge, was held on Wednesday last at Honiton. We understand that the proposed Committee is intended to comprehend the inha- bitants of tho different parishes whose Clergymen attend the Hon ton visitation, as well as other Clergymen and Gentlemen, who, from local circumstances, may be enabled or desirous to join them. The business of the meeting was opened by the Rev. W. I. Tucker, rector of Widworthy, in a speech replete with so- lid and judicious arguments, which we regret that we cannot give at length to our readers. William Tucker, esq. the Rev. Francis Huish, rcctor of Clysthydon, H. B. Lott, esq. the Rev. H. A. Hughes, and several other gentlemen, also addressed the meeting, and introduced many appropriate remarks with much feeling and pathos. The Rev. H. A. Hughes, then submitted for the approbation of tbe gentlemen present, sixteen resolutions; ( for which see the advertisement:) they were immediately adopted, and passed without a dissenting voice. And before the company had left the room, a very considerable number of names were added to the list of Annual Subscribers of 1/. Is. besides those who c ame forward with liberal donations, and smaller sums as subscriptions. A large party afterwards sat down at the Golden Lion Inn, where an excellent dinner had been provided for them by Mr. Webber ; and ti- ie whole passed off with the greatest cor- diality and unanimity. We. trust that the example thus set by the Clergymen and Gentlemen in that neighbourhood, will be speedily followed throughout the Diocese ; as the greatest good must result to the parent Institution from the formation of Dis- trict Committees, tending, as they do, to give a greater extent and circulation to the laudable objects of the Society for promoting Christian Knowledge, which is interwoven ( as it were) with our Church Establishment, and therefore has the first and strongest claim upon every Member of the Church of England.' Amongst the company present, we observed, besides the worthy Chairman, William Tuckcr of Coryton, esq. who gave a handsome donation of twenty guineas in addition to his annual subscription, and the gentlemen already mentioned— the Re- Dr. Palmer, vicar of Garcombe ; the Rev. Herman Drewe, rector of Comb- Raleigh ; the Rev. P. Putt, rector of Gittisham ; the Rev. C. Steer, vicar of Axminster; the Rev. Luther Elliott, of Salviston; the Rev. W. Michell, rcctor of Cotleigh ; the Rev. W. Jenkins, jun. of Sidmouth ; the Rev. H. Woolcombe, rector of Ashbury ; the Rev. H. Fellowes, vicar of Sidbury ; the Rev. J. Rogers, rcctor of Feniton ; the Pvev. G. Smith, vicar of Ottery St. Mary ; the Rev. R. Lewis, rcctor of East Anstey ; the Rev. T. Babb, curate of Kilmington and Membury ; the Rev. R, Holditch, curate of Tallaton ; the Rev. G. I. Cardew, vicar of Salcombe ; the Rev. R. Cutcliff, vicar of Seaton and Beer ; the Rev. W. Salter, rec- tor of Northleigh; the Rev. S. H. Peppin, curate of Colyton ; the Rev. Mr. Lloyd, curate of Luppitt; J. B. Coles, of Wood Hayne, esq.; Joseph Jenkins of Sidbury, esq.; Robert North- cote of Buckerell, esq. ; George Northcote, t f Buckerell, esq. ; Capt. Pring, Captain Roworth, Christopher Flood, Samuel Lott, P. Mules, J. Townsend, D. Gould, C. Templer, J. Rogers, W. Rogers of Honiton, esqrs ; with a n . mber of other gentlemen ; nd clergymen, whose names we do not immediately call to mind. On few public occasions indeed have we witness, d a more respect- able and numerous attendance. We are r, quested to st. ite, that no system of exclusion of the subscribers, is intended by the appointment of a select Commit- tee, according to the 0th resolution ; the nomin tion of a definite number of Members to assist the Secretary, is considered in- dispensably necessary to secure their attendance. John Newcombe of Starcross, esq. having been sworn into the office of High Sheriff of the county of Devon, has appointed John Pidgley, gent, to be his under sheriff, and 1!. C. Campion, gent, to be his county clerk.-— The assizes fgr Devon and Exeter, are appointed for Saturday the 19th of March. It is expected that the meeting advertised in our fourth page, to be held on Friday next at Foote's Hotel, for con- tributing to the relief of the distressed Germans, will be attended by the flower of tho rank and benevolence of the county. Our readers need not be told, that the cause in which so many thousands in the neighbourhood of Leipsic, & c. have been reduced from comfort and opulence to the most abject misery and distress, is a cause as dear to Eng- lishmen as to Germans. Nor will those hearts, which God has enobled with a ray of his own beneficence, need our prompting to come forward and claim a share in the honor- able burthen of relieving them. The sermon preached at the Wesleyan chapel in this city, last Sunday evening, by the Rev. Mr. Lessey, for the benefit of the Strangers' Friend Society, is spoken of as a most truly orthodox, humane, and dignified display of pulpit eloquence. The chapel was crowded throughout, with respectable persons of many religious persuasions; who, however, all agreed in the main point, by subscribing liberally for the relief of the distressed objects of this ex- cellent institution. No doubt is entertained, that every regiment of Local Militia now about to assemble in the western counties, will extend their services. The officers, we understand, have very generally signified their readiness to do so, already ; and it was never yet the character of English soldiers or sailors to hang back, when their officers pushed forward.— The times and places at which the eight Devonshire regi- ments will assemble, are stated in our front page ;— those, for the Cornwall regiments, were given in our last. The NORTH DEVON FOX HOUNDS will meet on Thursday next at Dolton ;—- on Saturday, at Chittleholt. Mrs. Wright, superior of the nuns, who have enjoyed a refuge from the horrors of the French revolution, in the mansion of Lanherne in Cornwall, was interred last week, in Mawgan Church, attended by a procession of nuns and priests ;— a solemnity which attracted a vast concourse of spectators from the surrounding country. Natural Curiosity.— Mr. Doney, sadlcr, of Tavistock, lias in his possession a White Rat, with red eyes, resem- bling a ferret. It was given him in September last, when it was not larger than a common mouse, but has now at- tained the full size. SUDDEN DeATh.— A melancholy event occured on Fri- day evening between seven and eight o'clock at the Cock Pit, St. Giles's. Whilst preparations were making for the setting- to of the cocks, a Mr. Thorpe, from the country, a well known respectable character, had taken nis seat in the front of the pit and having offered to back the Huntingdon birds for ten guineas, fell forward and expired.

A dispatch of which the " following is an extract, has been re- ceived this morning at this Office from Lord Burghersh, dated Troyes, February 8, 1814. The important position and town of Troyes was yesterday ta- ken possession of by the Allies; the enemy retired from it the night proceeding, and took his direction upon Nogent.—' The number of roads leading from the different points of France, slid unitiug at Troyes, the resources of the place itself, with a popu- lation of 30,000 inhabitants, render its occupation of the greatest importance.— The Prince Royal of Wirtembergh was the first who entered the town with his coips : on the day proceeding he had turned the enemy's position nearRuvigni, and had teken posses- sion of the village of Lambrissel on his left.— 1 have the satis- faction of reporting to your Lordship, that a detachment from the corps of Gen. D'Yorck took possession of Vitry on the 5th.— Gen. D'Yorek, as 1 have already informed your Lordship, attacked and defeated the rear- guard of the corps of Marshal Macdonald's army at Chausee on the 5th. On the same day Gen. D'Yorck pursued the enemy to the gates of Chalons, anil bombarded the town. Marshal Macdonald entered into a capitulation for the evacua- tion of the place, which he effected on the morning of the 6th, retiring with his army, composed of tho corps under his imme- diate orders, and of those of Generals Sebastiani, and Arighi, to the left bank of the Marne.— Chalons sur Seine has been cap- tured by the Austrians. General Le Grand was assembling a French force at that place; the Prince of Hesse Hombourgh di- rected it to be attacked ; some guns were captured in the town. General Le Grand retired upon the road to Lyons, where Marshal Augereau has collected a force of about four thousand men.— General Bubna occupies an extent of country from near Grenoble on his left, by Bourg his centre, from the environs of Macon on his right.— The advanced guard of General Wrede has this day followed the retreat of the enemy as far as Les Granges, on the road to Nogent. Several hundred prisoners have been taken since the enemy evacuated the town of Troyes. SECOND SUPPLEMENT to the GAZETTE Of Saturday February 12— Published on Monday. WAR DEPARTMENT.— DOWNISG- STREGT, FEBRUARY 13. A dispatch, of which the following is a copy, was last night re- ceived at Earl Bathurst's Office, addressed to bis Lorpship by General Sir Thomas Graham. Head Quarters, Merxem, February 6 1814. MY LORD,— I should have been happy to have had to announce to your Lordship, that the movement on Antwerp, fixed by Ge- neral Bulow for the 2.1 instant, had produced a greater effect; but the want of time, and of greater means, will account to your Lordship for the disappointment of our hopes of a more satisfac- tory result; for General Bulow received ( after we had got the better of all the great obstacles in the way of taking a position Hear the tow n,) orders to proceed to the southward to act in con cert with the grand army; and the state of the weather, for some time back, not only prevented my receiving the supplies of ordnance and ordnance stores from England, but made it im- possible to land mnch of what was on board the transports near Willi imsta. lt, the ice cutting off all communication with them.-^- 1 have, however, sincere pleasure in assuring your Lo: dship, that every part of the service was conducted by the officers at the head of the different departments, with all the zeal and intelli- gence possible.— To make up for the want of our own artillery, all the serviceable Dutch mortars, with all the ammunition that could he collected, were prepared at Williamstadt, and on the evening of the 1st, the troops of the Ist and 2d division, that could be spared from other services, were collected at Braesehat, and next morning this village ( fortified with much labour ever since our former attack) was carried in a most gallant style, in a much shorter time, and with much less loss, than 1 could have believed possible.— Major General Gibbs, commanding the 2d division ( in the absence of Major General M'Kenzie, confined by a dangerous fall from his horse), ably seconded by Major Gene- ral Taylor, and by Lieutenant- Colonel Merries, commanding Major General Gibbs's brigade, conducted this attack, in w hich all the troops engaged behaved with the usual sprit anc! intre- pidity of British soldiers.— Two pieces of cannon and a consider- able number of prisoners fell into our hands.— No time was lost in marking out the batteries, which by the very great exertions of the artillery under Lieutenant- Colonel Sir G. Wood, and the engineer under Lieutenant Carmichael Smyth, and the good- will of the working parties, were completed hv half- past three, P. M. of the 3d.— The batteries, opened that hour. During the tie short trial of the fire that evening, the defective state of the Williamstadt mortars and ammunition was too visible. Our means were thus diminshed, and much time was lost, as it was not till twelve, at noon, the following day ( the 4th) that the fire could be opened again.— That day's fire disabled five of the six 24- pounders. Yesterday the fire was kept up all day. The practice was admirable, but there was not a sufficient number of shells falling to prevent the enemy from extinguishing fire when- ever it broke out among the ships, and our fire ceased entirely at sun- set yesterday.— It is impossible for me to speak too highly of the indefatigable exertions of the two brenches of the Ord nance Department.— As soon as evcrv thing is cleared away, we shall move back into such cantonments as I have concerted with General Bulow.— I cannot conclude this dispatch without ex- pressing my admiration of the manner in which General Bulow formed the disposition of the movement and supported this at- tack.— The enemy were in great force on the Deurne and Berchem roads, but were every where driven by the gallant Prussians, though not without considerable loss. I have See. ( Signed) THOMAS GRAHAM. P. S. His Royal Highness the Duke of Clarence returned from the Hague on the 1st instant, and has accompanied this advance on Antwerp.— General Bulow's head- quarters are to be to- mor- row at Malines. T.

A Dispatch from the earl of Clancarty, dated the Hague, Feb. 5, states, that Gorcum had capitulated on the following terms : That the place was to be held by the French until the 20th inst. • when the garrison was to become prisoners of war, unless it should be relieved before that day. Dispatches have also been received from Major Macdonald.— The first day is dated from Oliva, Dec. 11, and announces the surrender of Modlin, a fortress of considerable strength on the Vistula, and of great importance in a commercial view to the iuterest of Dantzic.— The other is dated Oliva, near Dantzic, January 8, and announces the surrender of tile city and fortress of Dantzic to the Allies, on the terms projxised by the Duke of Wirtemberg, on the 29th ult. by which tho whole of the French, with the few Neapolitan and Italian troops that were in the place, to the number of 11,800, have become prisoners of war, and arc to be sent into Russia ;— S500 Poles are to be disbanded and sent home ;— 2300 men belonging to the Confederation of the Rhine, and ISO Dutch artillerymen, will be placed at the disposal of their respective Sovereigns ;— a battalion of 370 Spaniards and Portuguese, who were employed to work on the fortifications, will be sent by the first opportunity to England.

VIENNA, Jan. 26th.— According to letters from Vicenza, dated the 18th, the definitive Declaration of the King of Naples, so long expected, has at length taken place. Prince Pignatelli, Mr. Graham, Lord Bentick's Secretary, and Mr. Von Menz, the Austrian Charge d'Affaires at Naples, had that day arrived at the head- quarters of Field Marshal Bellegarde. Mr. Von Menz immediately set out from thence to the head- quarters of the Emperor of Austria, with the Treaty of Alliance between Austria and Naples. The English have made the necessary arrangements with regard to Sicily. This new alliance has already had favourable effects on the operations of the Austrian army; the Neapo- litan troops have retired from Bologna, which is now almost defenceless. Tho necessary preparations had been made for a general attack on the whole line of the French army. Mr. Graham was speedily to return to Lord W. Bentinck in Sicily, where an expedition was lying in readiness, pro- bably destined against Genoa. AlTONA, Jan. 19.— Yesterday an order was issued at Hamburgh, by which the citizens were desired to deliver into the barracks, before the evening of the next day, 1500 bags of straw, 1498 pillows, 1491 coverlets, and 1777 feather beds or mattresses ; whatever is deficient will be taken by the soldiery out of the houses, and the defaulting inhabitants brought before a Military Commission. LOWER ELBE, Jan. 28.— The garrison of Hamburgh consists of 20,000 men, of whom 5000 are sick, and 2000 Germans and Dutch, who daily desert.— On Friday last Davoust gave orders to destroy the upper town of Altona, under the additional threat that if it was not immediately carried into execution, he would destroy the whole town by his batteries. It is said that the Crown Prince of Sweden has advised the inhabitants of Altona to abandon the town entirely.— Such of the inhabitants of Hamburgh as had sup-^ plied themselves with provisions, have been obliged to de- liver them up, and now daily receive rations in the same mariner as the military. DORDRECHT, Feb. 8.— Antwerp, during two days, has been bombarded by the English and Prussians in different directions, and artillery is; daily arriving for the purpose of reducing the city. On Saturday, seven six- pounders, four howitzers, and four powder waggons, of the Dutch train, and 100 artillerymen, arrived at Papendrecht from Delft, and yesterday 700 newly- raised troops arrived from the Hague. Yesterday ten English prisoners, who escaped from Aire, reached Zurydrecht. Two hundred others had taken flight from that district. BRUSSELS, Feb. 2.— Yesterday evening at six o'clock the French troops that remained here made off, and an hour af- terwards some Cossacks entered who were in the neighbour- hood, and who had heard of the flight of the enemy, although they did not amount to a fiftieth part of the number of the French. The best order and the highest joy accompanies this change of affairs in our city, and to- day 1500 Prussians have arrived, and parties of the enemy are from time to time brought in as prisoners of war. Vilvoerden and Meehelen are full of Prussians, and another column has marched by Dendermonde to Ghent, so that the whole of Belgia will now be freed, with the exceptionof Antwerp, which is bom- barded, and the shipping has been injured. General Win- zingerode is at Naimeti, in the vicinity of Rheims, and all towns near Mons are in the hands of the Allies. FRANKFORT, Feb. 4.— Switzerland brings into the field immediately 18,000 men to join the Allied forces, and a portion of them have already been united with the Aus- trians at Geneva, where there are 8 or 9000 men, princi- pally infantry.— The principality of Neufchatel has been taken possession of in the name of the King of Prussia.— The official Gazette has the following article :— We learn from good authority, that the Allied Sovereigns have set at liberty all the persons taken during the war, that are na- tives of the following countries:— Switzerland, Savoy, Nice, Eizas, Litlieringen, Belgium, and generally natives of all those countries conquered by France since the time of Louis XV." SPANISH AMERICA. The following is a communication from the Mississippi, adverting to the state of affairs in that part of Spanish Ame- rica, the fato of which is likely to determine the future si- tuation of all the colonies dependent on the same power:— NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 27.— By the vessel from Vera Cruz, which arrived here on Tuesday, several letters have been received in this city, and we have been favotued with the perusal of one of them, containing the following par- ticulars :—" The insurrection never had, even in the days of Hidalgo, assumed a character equally formidable and de- cisive. The insurgents have at length seized on Acapulco, one of the finest ports in the Pacific Ocean, and perhaps the only safe harbour in Mexico. It is eminently situated for commerce with the East, and was once famous for its annual galloons to Manilla. It appears that Morillos, after having secured his posts in the southern provinces, and or- ganized a powerful army, found himself sufficiently strong to detach several corps to intercept the communication be- tween \ era Cruz and Mexico. The army which block- aded a valuable convoy in the fortress of Perote, at the de- parture of the above vessel, was estimated at 70,000 men. — Perote is 95 miles from Vera Cruz. Apprehensions were entertained for the capital, as no news from thence had been received for some time at Vera Cruz. " N. B. We have just learned that San Bras, a port in the Pacific Ocean, near Acapulco, has also fallen iuto the hands of the Insurgents." HOLLAND. The present sentiments of the Dutch, and state of Hol- land, are well described in the following brief extract, with which we have been favoured, from the private letter of a Dutchman lately returned thither :— " There is only one opinion respecting the revolution, namely, that of general approval. The very name of a Frenchman is ex- ecrated, and to be torn in pieces bv the mob, you need only speak the French language. There is a general enthusiasm amongst the inhabitants, even to such a pitch, as I never thought them capable of. But, my dear Sir, you cannot conceive to what an abject state of poverty, the nation has been reduced, by these barbarous oppressors. " Besides, all the public treasury have been so completely pillaged by those robbers, that it is al- most next to impossible, to provide for the. wants of the public service, with that speed, which the exigencies of the present mo- men; require. And, if I add to this, the unavoidable confusion which in times of revolution, must affect all the branches of pub- lic administration, you will undoubtedly agree with me, that it is a most difficult task for the Prince to put all the wheels of the new fabric into motion, and to make them act with that energy, the public expectation requires. In the mean time, his Royal Highness is actively employed to give vigour and life to every department, and the financial system, as well as the organiza- tion of the army, being the most pressing, are two objects to which he attends without remission. These two being settled, I have not the least doubt, but that every thing will go on well.— On our arrival in the country, I expected to find some cash due from annuities; but to our mortification, we were informed by our relations, that they had been obliged to give up the interest to secure the capital. A Daily Paper says, " the first dispatch from Lord Cas- tlereagh was dated Basle, the 22d ult. The next day his Lordship had audiences of the Emperor of Austria and King of Prussia. The Emperor Alexander, who quitted Basle the day before, left a letter for his Lordship, highly complimentary, and couched in terms of marked esteem and distinguished consideration. Lord Castlereagh fol- lowed the Emperor Alexander the subsequent morning to Vesoul, where he was admitted to an interview. Lords Cathcart and Aberdeen arrived at Chatillon two days be- fore Lord Castlereagh, and Caulaincourt, who was in wait- ing there, immediately addressed an official note to Lord Aberdeen, expressing an earnest desire to wait upon him the next morning at a fixed time. His Lordship replied, that he was engaged to see Lord Cathcart at that particular time, but that he would be happy to receive him at any other he might think proper to appoint. This was not sa- tisfactory to Caulaincourt, who, determined to lose no time, went in person to Lord Cathcart's and left his card as Plenipotentiary to the Emperor and King ; the visit was returned by Lord Cathcart with alhhe forms of civility and good breeding, but in the mean time Lord Castlereagh ar- rived. This gave a new turn to Caulaincourt's views and measures, and he immediately addressed an official letter to his Lordship, requesting the honour of a conference. Lord Castlereagh visited the Duke of Vicenza the following morning, and a conference took place, which lasted two hours, after which, and on the same day, Lord Castlereagh and the other Plenipotentiaries, together with the Earl of Aberdeen and Viscount Cathcart dined, as it has been ex- ultingly stated in the Moniteur, with Caulaincourt." Letters to the 4th inst. have reached town from Bremen. They state that reinforcements of Russians and Prussians, to the number of 45,000, were marching throngh that place to join their brethren in arms in France. There were ct Bremen. Generals Tettenborn, Woronzcw, Gelatin, and several other officers of distinction. Two thousands Bri- tish troops had arrived at Bremen from Lubeck, after a se- vere march. A. consultaiton had been recently held amongst the principal officers, as to the propriety of storming Ham- burgh. It was expected to cost the Allies at least 0000 men.— Whether the measure will be proceeded on or not, is not ascertained; but hospitals are preparing for a num- ber of wounded. By a carte) from Morlaix we learn, that 1000 British prisoners, being under a French escort which was removing, them further from the scene of military operations, were surroundered by a party of Cossacks and set at liberty. EAST INDIA SHIPPING.— The followiag were to be dis- patched from the East India House on Friday last:— Win- chelsea and Marquis of Huntley, for Madras and China ; Royal Charlotte and Surat Castle, Batavia and China ; Castle Himtly, Madras, Prince of Wales's Island and China; Glatton, St. Helena and China ; and Astell, Eu- rope and Asia, Madras and Bengal. ACCIDENT.— Saturday se'nnight an inquest sat on the body of Mr. James Clement, of Mere, Wilis, who was killed by a most melancholy accident. It appeared that the deceased went shooting the day before with Mr. James Glover, of Mere, and that while pursuing" their sport, Glover fell into some deep water, and called to his friend Clement to assist him, who im- mediately took hold of the muzzle of Glover's gun, in order to pull him out of the water ; but while in the act of this assistance, the gun went off and its contents entered Clement's left breast, who instantly fell, exclaimed, " Lord have mercy upon me, " and died in about five minutes. He has left a widow and two children. The Jury brought in a verdict— Accidentally shot.

By EDWARD BALDWIN, Esq. The merits of this work, which was first published in the year 1800, arc sufficiently known to all persons habitually engaged in the early branthes of education. Time has affixed upon it its stamp ; and experience has evinced that it presents to the pub- lic a valuable improvement in the Instruction of Youth. The object of the book is so to shorten the time necessary for obtaining a competent knowledge of the English Tongue, that the learner may acquire all the genuine elements of our speech, with less than half the labour usually employed for that purpose. The original and natural meaning only is in most instances annexed to every w< rd, that the mind of the pupil may not be unneces- sarily perplexed ; and that meaning is generally expressed, not by a bare svnonym, which for the most part would tell him no- thing, but by a simple and clear paraphrase, fixing in his mind a distinct idea of the thing to be explained.

The True- blooded Yankee, which has so much annoyed our trade, was chased last week by the Achates, which was overhauling her fast, when she threw her spars, guns, and boats overboard and rut her anchors from her bows; and being thus lightened, she escaped. The capture of the Commerce, London trader to Ply- mouth, is likely to be severely felt there ; her cargo is esti- mated at 10,0C0/. The brig adventure, Walton, was burnt to the water's edge, last Thursday at Swansea. The William and Alexander, from Penzance to Swansea, was totally lost near the Land's End on ihe 11th instant; crew saved. A Transport bound from Passages to Dublin was boarded by a French brig privateer on Sunday last off Stilly, and plundered of every thing valuable : and on Monday night a vessel was observed to be on fire about 4 leagues to the S. E. of Scilly, which after burning a considerable time, apparently sunk. AGRICULTURAL REPORT from the NORTH of DEVON.— The gradual decline of the snow, and the breaking up of the frost, has been highly beneficial to agricultural concerns ; allowing the Teams to be hi sily engaged in turning down the eddishes, and other out- door work.— Turnips have not suffered so much from the frost as might have been expected ; owing to the covering uf snow ; but the tops are in many places completely burnt. The loss of I ambs, through the intense cold and falls of snow by night, is severely felt by many respectable breeders, some ha- ving lost more than half in yeaning, and also many Ernies j al- though most people have kept them well s. pplied with hay, and ivy, through the lay of snow. Some breeders Lave also lost many of their Hoy Slieip ( yearlings)— some, to the amount of one- fourth part, without any symptom of rot, or other com- plaint, but found dead in the morning, without auy swelling or discolour.— The growing Wheats in general look healthy and vigorous ; but the great warmth of the weather for the last ten days, has thrown forward a vegetation, not desirable ill the North of Devon so early ; as April and May are in general pro- ductive of severe frosts. Many farmers have relaxed in the cul- tivation of Spring Wheat, or the Tritieum aEstivum ; owing, perhaps, to the dealers not liking to purchase. But the millers and mealmen now seem to wish it more at their refusal, having found out its real good quality, both ill the weight of the meal, and in the goodness of the bread. It has always answered well with me after turnips ; and the clover sown with it has ever proved better than what I have sown with barley Corn markets, Wheat 10s. average ;— Barley 5s.— Oats- 2s. 3d. Customary measure of 9 gallons, except the wheat, and that 7 score the hag, or 1401bs. the two bushels :— Meat, beef, prime, from 9-^ d. to 1 Id. per lb.— Mutton 10d.— Pork 10
