-1 Sanson, THURSDAY, March SO. I LAST m"ht wree received Paris papers to Sun- § day last. Not a. word is suttered to tranSpIre, which could betray the future intentions of B'»nairArte, though at the time he must have been acquainted with the fulminating declaration pub- lished against -hun at Vienna. In his decrees, the t.itteofKing; of Italy is omitted and the Mofliteur, hi announcing the arrival of Joseph Bonaparte, gives bun the tide of "Prince" Joseph. In the ives. the mean time- military preparations appear to he car- rying >n with extreme activity. The regiments, as they arrive from different p trts of France, are re- viewed in the ThuUleries. On these occasions Bo- naparte narrangues them, speaks of their former ex- p! fjts. 4iieucoarages their pride and pretensions, without. giving direct catjse ot offence to foreign powers. This movem-ent of troops towards Paris seems tr be spontaneous and universal Several (]':ner;¡\s, tnre to their oaths, their honour, and th, ¡ r ;(f";gn, attempted to counteract it, but in Iv.t. P, are advancing-towards the French fronri'rs; an army of 40,000 men has marched in the direction ot Lisle, where the garrison and po- pulation are said to be entirely devote(i to Bon-t- parte. Caruot, in his of Minister of the Interior, has addressed a circular letter to the dif- ferent Prefects: in which he saythat the march of Bonaparte from the coast to Pans, resembled a triumphal procession. The Duke of Bourbon hai. embarked oil the Loire-for this country. All the other members of the House of Bourbon have quit- ted Fra.nce, with the exception of the Duke of An- gouleme, u-hose •escape, is problematical. Great gains ar« used to-excite the old cry against the emigrants; and incited, every thing announces a return to the principles and arts of the revolution- ary system. Lord Fitzroy Somerset havingatlength procured passports, arrived at Calais on Monday from Paris, and intended to repair forthwith "to Ostend, where h s Majesty Louis the XVlIIth remained last Mou- dav. Dutch p^pars also arrived yesterday. A portion of Use Prussian troops had passed the Rhine at limerick, and were to proceed by forced marches towards the .Duchy of Luxenibufgh. It is compu- ted, that tbe allied force on that part of the French frontier, which extends from Nieuport.to Treves, would in a short time, amount to 150,000 men. The Milo has arrived at Liverpool in eighteen days, from Boston, being the first merchantman from the United States since the conclusion bt peace. The letters and papers are to the 13th ult. Congress had separated on the 3d of Match, not to suspend their proceedings during the usual recess, but to resume them ft is believed in the month of May. General Jackson had advanced from the lines near New Orleans and had marched with 10,000 men upon Mobile. The two Houses of Legislature concurred with the President as to the fitness of employing only natives and naturalized seamen on board American ships; but the Lusiuess was deferred on account of the arrangements necessary to be considered before the intention should be carried into effect. The standing force is to consist of 6000 men.— The navy, it is determined, shall be progressively augmented. On the 3d ult. at 11 at night, it was resolved that hostilities shoutd be commenced against the Dey of Algiers. It appears that our troops made some attack t'pon Darien, in the State of Georgia. It was, ac- cording to these papers, unsuccessful. Mr. Adams has been appointed Minister to our Court. The President of the United States had sent the following nominations to the Senate:— Monroe to be Secretary of State, for the de- partment of war. « Joseph Anderson, Ex-Senator from Tennessee, to be Comptroller. of the Treasury. JuhttQiiiitcey Adams to be Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary at London. James A. Bayard to be Envoy Extraordinary and ?Vfittiste.r P'letiipotentiarv'at St. Pe-tersburgit. Albert Gallatin to be Envoy and Mi nister Plenipotentiary at Paris, vice Grawford-. v Joltti Rogers, Isaac Hull, and David Porter, Captains in the navy, to form the Board of Navy Commissioners." The Aiuerican Government have, as line of their new t;'xes, doubled the postage of all letters re- ceived into, and passing out of, the United States the last year's receipt of this part of their revenue produced only 60001.
FRIDAY, "March SI. This morning the Paris papers of Monday last ar- rived. They confidently state that Bonaparte has ordered it to be signified to the foreign Ministers who were detained in Paris, that he intended to observe the Treaty of Paris; a.nd that he hoped the Foreign Powers would as scrupulously observe the conditions of the same Treaty, and not interfere in the internal affairs of France. Almost all the Marshals have made their sub- mission to the Usurper. However, there are one or two honourable exceptions. Marshal Marmont is sopposed to be with the King of France. Mar- shal Berthierhas gone to Bamberg, to his father- in-law, who is brother to the King of Bavaria. Amongst the leading military men who have submitted to the successful cause, are the names of Macdonald and Augereau the former has ar- rived in Paris: the latter has published an Address, teeming with the most fulsome and disgusting praise of the very man, whom .about. 11 mouths ago.he did not hesitate to call a coward, and un- worthy to-reign over a brnvepeopte. is one name, that figures in the list of apostates, which fills us with astonisiwnent and grief—it is that of Rapatel—the Aide-de-Camp and faithful fncm'of Morean, who accompanied hitn in his exile,: and received his last sigh. He was pre- sented on .Sunday last at the Levee at the Thuil- ierjes; and. on the sameoccasion Marshal jourdan was received hack into favour. Th6 news from the frontiers is important.— A dispatch from the Duke cf Treviso (Mortier) says," the fortresses of the North are all supplied with sufficient provisions to secure them, not only against a ^,vip-dc-rna).K, but even against a serious attempt, should it be made by foreign forces." Mortier has since arrived at Paris and to his loyalty." is ascribed the -preservation of Lisle for Bonaparte. Augereau writes from Caen, in Normandy," that thr disarming of the insurrectional troops is pro- ceeding with the greatest activity." Bonaparte, on his arrival at Lyons, sent a Courier by the way of Turin to the Emperor of Austria. The movements of troops continue; and pre- parations for war appear to be making with the greatest activity. At the levee held on Sunday at the Thuilleries, the different Bodies of the State were presented to the Usurper; and addressed him on the occasion Ïi! language expressive of the strongest attachment and admiration. The answers of Bonaparte are replete with affected moderation and liberality. The following answer to the Council of State will serve as a specimen ot the whole:— Princes are the first Citizens of the state. Their authority i5 more or less extensive, aceord- iug to the interests of the nations they govern. J Sovv.-eignfy itself is only hereditary; because the interests of the people require it. Beyond those principles, I know no legitimate authority. I have renounced ther ideas, of the Empire, the bases of which I had' been onl/able to lay in a period of 15 years. For the future the prospe- rity and consolidation of the French Empire shall be the object of g.11 my thoughts." Brussels papers to the 29th inst. arrived this morning. The preparations for immediate war are carried on with the strictest activity. The Prussians are already on the march. An-article from Frankfort, dated Match 23 d, says that "the Prussian army which is passing the Rhine is 120,000 strong. The troops of Bavaria, Wurtemberg, Hesse, and all the German States are in motion, and orders h tve been already sent to hasten the march of -30,000 Swedes to Belgium. Intelligence from Vitllnaof March 16, says, the Allied Sovereigns have resolved to make 300,000 men march with all possible expedition to the Rhine to increase the army in Italy to 200000 men, and that in the Netherlands to 200,000. Four thousand waggons are ordered for the con- veyance of the Russian troops in Poland. The whole Austrian army is in motion. There is not a single regiment but what has received orders to break up." .Thf King of Spain has ordered two armies of 80,000 each, to be assembled in Catalonia .and Biscay. ——— Extract of a. letter from Amsterdam, March 25; (6 A. M.)—■' Thjs moment,I learn that the memo- rable traitor, Admiral VerheuJ, and Gen. Daendels, late Governor of Batavia, have been detected in a conspiracy to buy over "ur troops to the cause of Bonaparte.—They have been sent prisoners to the Hague. The former had arrived in Holland from Paris since Bonaparte entered it, and, no doubt, was sent here for the diabolical purposs above- mentioned. Three or four persons have been arrested for making disturbances aud calling out Vi-ce Napoleon—To-morrow Lord -Wellington is expected here.7* Letters frem China up to the end of May are received in town this morning by way of America, which state, that the Doris frigate, whilst in chase of an American ship on the coast of China, fired several shots, one of which unfortunately reached the shore, and killed six Chinese. The Chinese had in consequence put a stop to trade with all the European vessels. The China fleet for the season of 1814 ha.d not arrived at Penang. Files of Barbadoes, Antigua, Dominica, and other West India papers, have arrived in town. The intelligence of peace having been concluded with the United States was received at Barbadoes on the 2.5th Jan. by the Brazen sloop of war, which carried out dispatches from England for the Ad- mirals in the West Indies. The news had been received with the greatest joy throughout all the islands, as it was of equal importance to the inha- bitants as the pacification ofEurope. These papers are destitute of colonial in tell igetice.-ISI r William Young, Governor of Tobago, had died on that- island in the 64th year of his age. Intelligence has been received from St. Thomas's of the 26th ult. that the Guerrier, Independence, and Constitution American frigates, were cruizing to the N. E. of Barbadoes. Information had been received of their track, which was afterwards con- veyad to Sir G. Collier, who, with his squadron, had proceeded to Madeira. -.z.. A letter from Plymouth, received this morning states," that a report of the capture of NewOrleans, brought by the Superb and Saturn, ha*, excited much sensation. It is said, that the troops had re-embarked; but, that in consequence of the re- presentations of Adin. Cochrane, the Commander- in-Chief of the land forces was induced to make a second attempt; that nearly all the seamen of the squadron were sent to the assault; and that, after a tremendous conflict, in which they exhibited all the daring impetuosity of English seamen, the works were carried, but with the loss of a. v.ist nnmber of brave fellows. (Some accounts say, that 6000 soldiers and seamen fell.) It is added, that ill carrying the lines, a slaughter of the enemy took place, which included a great proportion of those found in arms. A journal of yesterday re-asserts, with the utmost confidence, that the plans and intentions of Bcyia- parte to escape, from Elba were known to a part of his Majesty's Government, In sufficient time to have been prevented. The journal alluded to pledges itself that this circumstance will Shortly appear before Parliament.
J SATURDAY, April 1. The Prince Regent has been pleased to appoint the Earl of Clancarty, one of his Majesty's Pleni- potentiaries at the Congress at Vienna, to be a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the B.th. Gazette. i—7-—— Three mails have arrived at the Post-office from France, bringing journals of the 29th and letters of the 30th inst. The mild and pacific tone adopted by Bonaparte, and which is re-echoed by his Mi- nisters, arises soleiy'from the consciousness of his inability to resist, with any probability of success, the threatened confederacy of the Continental So- vereigns This is the clue to the change- of style and sentiments in the speeches which have been (hade public. It most be remarked, that this change has taken place since the receipt of the Declaration of the Allies, which, doubtless, struck him with terror. It appears by the letters from Paris, that he is using every exertion to re-organize the army, and render it capable of taking the field. Cavalry and artillery, in which he was formerly strong, he is now miserably deficient every nerve will therefore be strained to put them upon an effi- cient footing; and as he is hot scrupulous with respect to the means, he will, no doubt, be suc- cessful. It is not true that the Usurper is popular in Paris, or that reposing on the affections of the peo- ple, he frequently exposes himself to their view, or mmgles with them. His entrance was private, and by night, because it was doubted whether he would meet with a favourable reception. On the morning of that day 200 dragoons entered by way oif experiment," to ascertain the feelings of the peo- ple, shouting, Vive CEmperetir." They were fol- lowed by a number of citizens, who replied at intervals, by cryingwith equal vehemence Vive, le HoiJ" This opposition of sentiment at length produced a conflict, in which several were hurt 011 both sides. This termination, it is believed, deter- mined Bonaparte to enter the capttal by night. The Moniteur of the 28th1 ultimo contains the minute of an investigation respecting the Royal Treasury, from which it appears that in pursuance of an ordonnance of Louis XVIIL dated March 13, M. Georges, Cashier-General of the Treasury of the Civil List, had delivered £ 0 M. Huet, the King's Valet, the crown jewels. The total value is esti- mated at 14,834,046 francs 10 centimes, including the Regent diamond, which is estimated at six millions. ) R.XTRACT OP A LETTER FROM PARIS. The pacific tone of the address and replies in our Jour- uals farm a r«roarkable contrast to the beitic iucidcut to a j state of war. At tfee moment I am writing, all the rofjds leading to the capital are crowded by military-otficers are hourly arriving and departing for their destitutions ;—- while couriers are expedited from the Minister of the In- terior and of the Minister at War, every half hour. It is not concealed here, that though the military are very nu- merous,yet they are badly organized, and want the materiel which constitutes the strength of an army. Horses, tents, and artillery, are particularly deficient, Soult, who is con sidered as one of the chief instruments of the counter- revolution, is asserted to have permitted thio deficiency to prevail, to embarrass any resistance which the Government luight oppose to Bonaparte. I have perused a 'circular- which has been addressed by Count Curuot at the instance of the Minister at War, to the Prefects and farmer* of the different departments. It is to the following effect:— 4 That the Prince d'Eckmuhl having received the com- mands of the Emperor to place the cavalry of the army upon the most efficient fouting-to remount many regi- ments which had either been dismounted or disbanded— and to provide for the conveyance of the artillery, had deemed it necessary only to make hit want of horsts known, to find in the patriotism of the farmers an imme- diate supply. The Prefect* are in consequence invited to transmit the names of such agriculturists, farmers, and others, who may be willing to furnish both horses and wag- gons, at an equitable price, for the service of the army, with the number of each.' Neither the letter nor the spirit of the above, circular is kept; for three thousand waggons, and report adds, 14,000 horses have been seized in the departments itf the Seine, of the Oisej of the Loire, for which the proprietors have not obtained nor ever will ob- tain any remuneration." IXTBACT op ANOTHER, LETTEt. You have no doubt heard that Caulincourt has been dispatched to Vienna, to invite the Archduchess to return to Franca. It is pretty-well known here that this distin- guished female is still so ruucli attached to her husband, as to be willing to share hi-s fortunes; but measures have been taken to prevent her following her tuctinittion". She is now confined at Presburg under-great personal restraint, Those in whom she mostconrided,lMve been removed, and persons ptaced about her, who would oppose any prema- ture attempt to depart for France. She still wears the miniature of her husband about-her neck. It lsbdlcved that Bonaparte knew that she would not be permitted to join him .but strong political motives rendered it necessary, to favour the belief of her speedy return to France. CarJ- lincourt is also said to be the bearer of dispatches to the Emperor of Austria, inviting him, by alluring offers, of ex- tending his possessions on the side of Italy, to withdraw from the Confederacy of the Continental Sovereigns." With the French rmils letters have been received from Sp&in, and almost every part of Italy. At Seville, the ancient capital of the AiUlalusias, the commotions ha.d beea of so serious1 and extensive a. character, that it had been thought prudent to march 30,000 troops thither, and these had been reinforced by very strong detachments from the interior. As to the first iiicaslii-c of violence, 16 persons were dragged from the bosom of their families, and had been sent under a. strong escort to Madrid how they had been disposed of had not been ascertained; nor did their relatives expect any very early inhumation.regarding them. Letters from the opposite coast mention, that all the* Foreign Ministers had left Paris to join the unfortunate Louis at Brussels. Lord Fitsrov So- merset and suite were on Thursday waiting at Calais, for the arrival ofa vessel to convey them to I England. About thirty of the military are stated to have deserted from Calais. In a rencontre be. tween the military and the citiaens, whether the white nsn; or the tri-coloured one should be hoisted, eight persons were killed, Yesterday Mr. Myers, the Messenger, arrived from Vienna, with dispatches from the Duke of Wellingtou, They are understuod to contain the. most encouraging intelligence. The whole of the Allied Sovereigns have declared their intention to march once more personally at the head of their troops to Paris, to enforce, within "the walls of that city, the Treaty made there last year. The com- bined forces are computed at not less than 800,000 men. The Brussels Gazette says, that.Murat is to furnish his whole army o! 80,000 men, in support ot the common cause against the Tyrant of France. It is added that he, as weit as the Crown Prince of Sweden, and Eugene Beauhtynois, are to have dis- tinguished commands, with the heroes Wellington, Blucher, and Sclnvartzenhnrgh.
MONDAY, April s. A French officer, with the tri-coloured cockade and the insignia of the Legion of Honour, landed at Dover from Calais yesterday with dispatches from Bonaparte to the Comte de la Chastre, Am- bassador of his Most Christian Majesty Louis the XVIIlth. at our Court. A Letter from Dover adds, that the Inspector of the Aliens being informed of his arrival, would not permit him to go on, and, as he would not give up his dispatches, of course he awaits the decision of Government on the subject." ABOLITION OF THE SLAVE TRADE IN FRANCE BY BONAPARTE! Amidst the astonishing measures by which the energetic promptitude and peremptory power of Bonaparte are characterised, the abrupt abrogation of the Slave Trade is not the least conspicuous.— The arrival of French papers to Friday last furnish us with an Imperial Decree tu that effect, dated March 29th. Equally profound and sagacious in his plans, Napoleon's policy, in this extraordinary instance, may be viewed as a mere trick to reconcile himself to an extensive class in England. He is in great want both of money and cavairy.But to conceal the former he boasts that he shall have 200,000 pieces of gold, of 20 francs, coined in a week, and he holds out another resource—Elba is to be an- other Potosi. There will constantly arrive at Paris," say the Paris papers, ingots of gold from the Elba mines' A M. de Montron has been sent to Vienna with some overture from the Tyrant; and private letters from Paris assure us we m.iy expect in a. day or two a Declaration, in his name, addressed to all Europe. ———. PLOT TO TAKE AWAY THE KING OF ROME. Last night arrived Hamburgh papers, containing intelligence from Vienna to the 21st. Bonaparte has given a. good specimen of the activity with which he means to govern. Forty Frenchmen, it is positively stated, made an attempt to carry away the little King of Rome from Vienna. A General and two Colonels were at the head of this daring enterprize. The suspicions of the police were ex- cited by the circumstance of 16 hackney-coaches having been ordered at the same time to the.same place; they followed up the trace, till the whole plan was detected; and it was afterwards ascer- tained that relavs of horses had been ordered from Vienna to the Rhine. The Archduchess Maria Louisa and her son were instantly removed from Schoenbrunne to the Imperial palace. This attempt may explain the positive manner, in which the French papers have stated that Bonaparte's wife and son would arrive on the 4th of this month at Pariq. This enterprize is one of the boldest uponf record. The decision and firmness however with which Austria has acted on this occasion proves, in a very decided manner, Austria's determination to enter into immediate war. If she intended peace with France, or even if she hesitated, she would not have taken this step, which is decisive of her readiness to make war; and as Austria is the power supposed generally, in speculations to be the least inclined to attack the Usurper, this step is very conclusive of the disposition not only of the Cabl- net of Vienna, but of the whole of the Allies. It will too be all explicit aud discouraging proclama- tion to the French nation. The (iorsi'can.wtil be I deprived of the splendour which the presence of Maria Louisa would shed around his throne; and by-retaining his son, the Allies will possess an object of great value in their future proceedings. Bonaparte's arrival at Lyons was known at Vienna on the 10th, but it only served to confirm, as it ought to do, the Allied Sovereigns in their deter- mination to act with instant vigour against him. Austrian and Prussian troops ace-marching in all directions to the Rhine; it is reported that the latter have actually advanced into France. The Declaration of the Congress has been published in the Meuse and Ardennes departments. The Aus- trian and Sardinian traops under Bubna have ad- vanced to the Alps. The King of Saxony refusing to accept the ar- rangement of the Allies has been sent to Presburg. The Emperor of Austria has commanded his daughter to renounce the imperial title, aud take that of Duchess of Parma. A mail from Flanders arrived this morning, and brought most important information. It is said that a Convention has been concluded between Great Britain, Austria, Russia, and Prussia, by which they engage to send a. stipulated number of troops agamst France; to guarantee the Crown of France to the Bourbons; and to address a Proclamation to the French people, making tham responsible for all the evils of war. Pcussian and Hessian troops are marching to the French frontier in great numbers, and with all! possible speed. The Duke of Wellington has left Vienna for Brussels. it is supposed that Louis XVIII. will, proceed from Brussels to the Hague. American papers to the 13th of March are re- ceived in town. They contain a copy of the President's message, on laying the treaty of peace with England before Congress. It states, that the war has demonstrated the efficiency of the powers of defence, and that manufactures have sprung into existence, and attained an unparalleled matu- rity throughout the United States, during the period of the European wars. The President also takes especial care to state that this war, the result of which has proved so beneficial, was reluctantly declared by the Congress. lie recommends the country to be well prepared in the event of a. re- newal of it. ————— Two Members of the Cabinet, the Earl-of Har- rowby and the Right Hon. W. Pole, set off last night for Flanders, to co-operate with the. King of France, the Duke of 'Wellington, and the other Ministers of the Allied Powers, assembled or to be assembled at Brussels. Lü rde am beríllereissaid to have received orders to hold himself in readiness to take the command of the cavalry in Belgium, under the Duke of Wel- lington. Col. Campbell is krrived in town. State of the King's health. The monthly BtrHefm of Saturday last states that his Majesty passed the Ltst month in an uniform state of tranquillity, but that Ins Majesty's disorder continues.
TCESDIT, Aprils. Carlton-House, March 91—His Royal Highness the Prince Regent was this day, pleased, in the name and on the behalf of his JVlaijesty, to confer the honour of Knighthood on John Campbell, Esq. Lieutenant-Colonel' in the British service, and Colonel of the 4th regiment of Portuguese cavalry, and Knight of the Royal Portuguese Military Order of the Tower and Swyrd.-—-Gaaeffe. This morning the Paris papers of Friday last reached town. Bonaparte was still at Paris. N cy has been sent to inspect and command the frontier on the side of Flanders. About 2000 cavalry, commanded by Marrabnt, Gen.Xauristo'n and '20 other Generals escorted and accompanied Monsieur and the Duke de Berri out of France, taking the road from Estaires,in the Department of the iNurtb, to Meniu. These papers state, that the equipage of the Empress setorffrom Versaities on the 27th. Thus dees Bonaparte attempt to keep up the de- lusion that Auttria favours his enterprisp, and is sending him Maria Louisa and her sou. Bourdeanx papers to the 25th bit. are also re- ceived. They knew of the King's departure from Paris, and the Prefect of the Gironde announced in consequence that the Southern Departments are to form one Government under the Dtike (I'At)- gouleme. The South is still staunch to the Bour- bons. ————— Letters from Switzerland mention that the Swiss Diet has decreed to send 30,000 men to guard their frontiers, and to join the Allied Powers in the grand cause; 15,000 have already marched. Jo- seph Bonaparte was to be arrested at his residence at Prangins, by order of the Diet, but it is presumed he received timely notice, as he departed two hours Gefoti the detachment arrived. Col. Campbell has written a letter to the Go- vernor of Leghorn, dated Feb. 28th, informing him of the departure of Napoleon from Elba. The public are already informed of the most important particulars which it contains. It mentions that Bonaparte was accompanied with three bomb vessels and four feluccas, in which his troops were embarked, and that he had taken some cannon and horses, with provisions for a. few days. A Dutch mail with papers and letters has arrived in town. The former are to the 31st ult.—The letters from Bremen by this mail are to the 86th of last month. They speak of the most active pre- parations throughout Hanover for the recommence- ment of war, and that considerable bodies of troops had been sent forward towards Belgium, to rein- torce the British army in that country. The occur- rences in France have produced a strong sensation at Hamburgh, and the exchange on London, in the short interval of a fortnight, had fallen 17 per cent. Coffee, sugar, and all manufactured goods, had in the like proportion advanced. An article (rum Vienna, dated March 15th, says, The Austrian Government has resolved to-day to continue the landwehr, as hitherto; a. new levy of 200,000 men is to be made without delay in the whole monarchy." Baron Sack has published an acJdressto the in habitants of the Banks of the Rhine, dated Aix-la- Chapelle, March 24th. In allusion to the noble Declaration of the Allies, he says, the anathema is pronounced agams). the perjurer and the whole population of Europe will, if necessary, pour in upon France He calls upon the people of the Middle and Lower Rhine to contribute in the glorious work of supporting by their arms and united efforts the Declaration of the Allied Powers against Bonaparte, in order to oppose a wall of brass to wickedness and perfidy. Let the vigorous youth assemble in crowds to conscrate their arms and their courage to the most sacred of causes." He recommends those who have reached mature age, the fathers of families of all classes" to arm themselves under the colours of their civic militia to defend their own homes against enemies and traitors;" and concludes by observing th.¡tt it is thus they will preserve themselves from the woes and calamities which indolence or indifference would otherwise bang on their heads. Information of Boa&parte's arrival at Paris not reached Congress at the date of the Litest papers received from Vienna. Prince Talleyrand, it is said, has urged the necessity of energetic pro- ceedings against Bonaparte. A Council therefore is assembling at Brussels, which wilt be composed of Ministers from most of the States, which con- tributed to the success of the last campaign against France. At this Council the political and military measures to be adopted, for supporting the Decta* ration of the Allied Powers at Vienna, will be taketl into consideration. Meanwhile the united Prus- sian, Hanoverian, Dutch. Belgian, and English army in the Netherlands of which the Duke uf Wellington was to take the command, was expected to be encreased to 200,000 men. Throughout Hulland the greatest exertions are making. Volun- teers were enrolling themselves, militia raising in every district, and the best spirit every where pre- vailed. No fewer than 150,000 troops already covered the Netherlands, and there Were BO longer any apprehensions entertained for the security, of the Belgian provinces. Louis XVIII. has arrived, with such attendant* as remained faithful to him, at Antwerp. The crown jewels, valued at fourteen miliiontot.francs, have happily been secured for his Majesty, and. the greater part of the specie in the Royal Treasury- has also reached its proper destination. This for- tunate occurerence happily will tell both ways-it will particularly embarrass Bonaparte, as weli as support Louis. .Antwerp, say the accounts from thence of the SOth, is thoroughly prepared to resist any force Bonaparte can send against it. At Menin, a strong fortress near Lisle, the British, Hanoverians, &c. already amount to 30,000 men. In Lisle itself, the French have only 9000 men. From every quarter are the foreign troops directing their march to the Rhine. The King of Saxony, in refusing to accede to the partition of his kingdom, was not without promises of ultimate support from Bonaparte. This suspi- cion is confirmed; he now declares openly that he is determined to await the issue of arfairs ia France. — Accounts from Warsaw state, that 100,000 Rus- sians were ia motion for the Rhine, and that 25,000 had already reached that river. Even Denmark. was to furnish a contingent of 15,000 men.. It was reported that Murat had made an offer of the Nea- politan army to the Emperor of Austria, to be commanded by any Austrian General his Majesty might. chaose to appoint. The French officer who brought the dispatches from Bonaparte to the King of France's Ambas- sador at our Court has been sent awav, and was immediately directed to embark for Calais; -with his unopened dispatch. He landed at Calais-yes- terday afternoon. A messenger arrived yesterday in Downing street, with dispatches from the Prince of Oran^s. He left Brussels on Saturday, and brings satisfac- tory accounts from every quarter, The following detachments have set off for the Netherlands, viz.-1200 of tlye 1st regiment of Guards, from Portman-street Barracks; 250 of the Coldstream or 8d regiment, from Kuightsbridge; and 250 of the 3d regiment, from St. James's Park. Intelligence from Dover, dated April QrJ, says,, vessels continue to come from France loaded witlt passengers, and yesterday there were three mails landed from one of them. Five hundred of the French soldiers on Friday came over to the Allies at Tournay, shouting. Vive lc Roi J" A Messenger arrived at Plymouth on Thursday morning from town, with dispalches for Admiral Martin, who-haisted his feg immediately on board the Acbar frigate, and sailed to the eastward. He is to proceed to the Ellst Scheldt, to take the com- mand ot the naval expedition about to co-operate with the Duke of Wellington's army in Belgium. The Princess of Wales is expected immediately' in England. ThsEarl of AbnJeeR has totally retired, since his mission to Vien-na, from, all official duties* whatever. About 50 returned visitors from France landed en Friday at Portsmouth from an American ship. Lord Cochrane is removed from his miserable place of confinement N the strong room-, in the King's Bench Prison, to apartments ovep the lobby, at the entrance of the prison. The Marshalhas been at great expence hi having iron doors made to them, and other fastenings, in order to prevent his Lordship from making any other attempts at escape. It is said, that the friends of Lord Coch- rane are uneasy at his occasional state of mind. Bread.This day the Lord Mayor, ordered the price of bread to be raised one farthing in the quartern loaf. IMPERIAL PAliLIAMENf. ROUSE OF COMMONS, Monday, April 3.—On the motion of tht Chancellor of the Exchequer the second reading of the Assessed Taxes Bill was postponed to Monday- next.
