A. Alexander. Fairfield, 28 th September, 1809. FOR IHE GAZETTE. BRANDYWINE BRIDGE. It is with pleasure we announce to the part of the bridge over public, that one Brandywine creek is now passable. The" ferry, which was established for the conveyance of travellers across the creek, during the time the bridge was building, was abolished on Saturday last. The novelty of the constt action of the bridge, naturally produced a diversity of o ptnion respecting the utility of the plan,— but after having received the won't do — never do — and can't do — of hundreds of fully believe that it —will spectators— we JJOj. We forbear giving a particular account of the construction, believing that the ma nagers will give the public every requisite information on the subject, when the bridge is fully completed, sent is, that we believe it a good plan — and that people in waggons, carriages. Etc. can now cross the creek safe—and with out TOLL. All we can say at pre MANY. A gentleman at Porto Rico writes to his correspon dent in New-York, that official advices had been re ceived that on the 27th and 28th of July, a most bloody battle was fought in the neighbourhood of Ma drid, in which the French lost, in killed, wounded, and prisoners, 48,000 men. been fought by Gen. Cuesta, in conjunction with the The battle is said to have English. We have now assurances that the English Expedition had reached the coast ol Holland, and that the fleet had extended itself from the East to the Western entrance of the Scheid. This country, in the latitude of the 1 hames, is but 3 degrees east of it. It does not appear that the English have made a descent upon the Continent, but have taken possession of some portion ofthe Islands which compose the prov ince of Zealand. They reckon four principal Islands on the Western Scheid and as many on the eastern. Walcheren forms the entrance ofthe west on the noith side and Schon wen the if the east branch, on the north side. Flushiu" is the port of Walcheren on the south side ofthe island towards the West Scheid. The Capitol of the Province is Middlesburg on the Wolchercn and its population has bee» giv en at 24,000, and it is nearly in the centre ol the LDtnl. A canal of communication with the West Scheid admits ships of the largest bur den and formerly this place was considered as well fur lifted. Flushing is the filth town, and was also fortified, and its dock is sufficient to receive u large fleet. Veer on the north pint ot the Island has not a great distance from the Fast Scheid, but is not so large as Flushing. By landing on the isLmds the English may not ■V.v >3 su readily to pénétrât., into ws Country, entrait ct but they will be more secure from any f.rcc which the French and their allies call bring against them. It is above two hundred years since Wulcheren had joined the Slat short time afterwards Flushing was mortgaged to Elizabeth, but upon payment of the loan, il was restored to the States by James. In the middle of the past Century the English repre sented Middlesburg as emuirtt of a share in their trade with Rotterdam, and as having redu ced their customs to divert the trade thither, but its chief trade was with Scotland. At that time every week a passage could he obtained in the Middiuburg packets to London. Veer however bad the greatest portion of the Scotch trade, which still inclined to Rotterdam.— The privileges granted to the Scots in Veer were great both civil and commercial, so that many Scotch families settled in that place. It has always been insinuated that no competition of interest, should induce the inhabitants of this country u, at war with Great Britain. The subordinate cha racter of die commerce of Zealand will re ceive the strongest local prejudice, from ti ny advantages the English may propose, and may be- favorable to a temporary quiet which oromsses present concurrence with their commercial interests. From the Danube, the accounts continue very favorable to the French. The Armis tice was of such a character, as not to augur well to the Austrians, and as such it was received in England. The French Empe ror had admitted an immediate inter view with the officers of die Austrian army, and it has been even insinuated with the Archduke Charles himself, but of this e vent there L no evidence. fhe French emperor had returned to the Imperial Pa I lace near Vienna, and it is said that the Emperor of Austria had retired from Ol muiz in Moravia to Hungary, and it was said that the Archduke Charles was at Ig lau in Moravia, northwest from Znairo — Iglau is the capital of one of the circles, with a population of 10 000, upon a river of the same name, and about the same dis tance from Znaim as from Brunn, not a de gree northwest from Brunn, and not two degress southwest from Olmutz. It is re ported the armistice has succeeded the pre liminaries of peace. At first it was said that the French emperor had refused every né gociation for peace, hut the language ot the bulletin, expresses fully with what, temper the Austrians would make their proposi tions for peace. It is said that Bavaria was to receive the countries as far as the Drave, and the countries south of the Drave were to be added to the Italian kingdom, the Tyrol was to he given to France. That the German powers were to be rewarded with portions front the Austrian dominions in Germany, and Austria was to retain part of Moravia, Bohemia and Hungary, distribution whether real or not, is made upon the terms ot the Armistice. The Rus sians were to hold Austrian Poland and the und in u That This country conquered hv their arms. The armistice according to the last accounts had been communicated at Dresden, and had pat an end to the operations of that quarter. Some accounts had been given that Gen. La Roche had passed with French troops from Nuremberg to Baretith, and had had a successful action in that neigh bourhood. before the news of the armistice had arrived. According to the bulletins, divisions of the. French army had encamp ed at Holabrun, Znaim, and Nicholsburgh, and the Austrians from Saxony were re turning co Bohemia, Holabrun is between Znaim and the Danube and Nicholshurg is more easterly than Znaim in Moravia. In the No; th appearances were in favor of between Sweden anil Russia. Swedish peace Ministers were expected at Paris and Petersburg. The Russian troops which had advanced upon ihe Gulplt of Bothnia had retired, but whether towards their northern settlements which had been disturbed by the English, or towards Fin land had not been known. It is suid that the Russians will hold Finland and the Island ol Aland, and will insist upon I be co-operation of | ie Swedes against the English. It is even said that the Swedes were to unite their maritime force with the Russian licet in the Baltic. The English report a victory gained over a Russian fiotîlla in the Bdtic, and an English fleet has been seen in the Gulph of Finland., in every pait of the Gulph. Such are the appearances of le mming peace among the northern powers, that e have assurances ot the renewed intercourse between Stralsund and Sweden by permission of the commander in Swedish Pomerania, now in the hands of the French. the English have taken alarm, and expect to begin hostilities again-t the Swedes immediately. the Swedish government nolon to w At these circumstun r,-s The change in gel- appears like a temporary accommodation.
