Qnfutfday the infant, arrived at Nbw- You, the Mercu r y Packet, from Fal mouth, votth thefollo'wing EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. Constantinople, ( t he Captai of 'Turkey J A™. 17. H E i 2th of this month a Tartar arrived from the Grand * z ' rs arm y» w^°was onl y w,th a ve toal account, that a corps of our troops,com manded by Apti Pacha and Chaous Fachi, amounting to about 40,000 men, who were going toatack thcßudians in their retrench ments at Bazargick, in order to diilodge them from thence, and force them to repais the Danube, and by that means prevent their taking up their winter quarters on this fide of that river,had the misfortune not only to fee their intentions entirely defeat ed, but were moltly cut to pieces by the Ruilians, who made 10,000 of them pnf oners. f “ This courier adds that two Turkish commanders were among the Hain, and that those who cfcap<d the enemy’s Iword, fled to the. Grand Vizir,and threatened openly to revolt against him, if he did not immediate ly march in person against the Ruffians, and redeem their captive comrades ; that the Grand Vizir, fearing they would keep their promise, had marched at the head of his whole army to attack the enemy, who notwithstanding the inferiority of their for ces, after a bloody battle, entirely defeated the Ottoman army ; that the Grand Vizir, was said to be dangerously wounded ; and that the enemy, after this victory, marched against Varna, most of the inhabitants of which place, fearingthey Should be pillaged by the CoSl'acks, had fled with the most valuable part of their effects. “ These disagreeable accounts have been confirmed by other expresses which arrived the 13th and 14th inStant, and have thrown the Grand Signior and the Divan into the greatest conftcrnation. “ The Divan assembled immediately on the arrival of these accounts, and orders were sent for the fame number of troops to march to the army as have been cither made prisoners, or killed, in the late actions, that the utmost may be tried to prevent the Ruffians from taking Varna. “ At an aflembly of the chief of the Janiffarics, it was resolved that 60,000 men ! were to be raised immediately, to whom ■ the Grand Signior has granted a pay of 13 ! Afpres per diem.” N0v.29. Thcfirft courier who arrived from the Grand Vizir’s army occasioned a gene ral council to be held composed of ail the officers of the empire and the lawyers, soon after which it Was publicly known,that part of theßuffian anny,hud m iched towards Kar a. Sow ; that Dagheftan Ali Pacha, whocom m..nded 8000 men ill that part of the coun ; try, having attacked the enemy, was routed by them with the loss of 500 men ; that Ifpir Aga Chiunoux Bachi was taken pris oner, and that the Ruffians were preHing ' forward to attack Bazarzick, and after that V arna. “ On this news the Grand Signior de ■ termined to head his troops himfelf, and the council aflembkd on this occasion, with difficulty persuaded him to lay aiide his intcniion. Ovders were immediately lent to Bertangi Bachi, of Adrianople, to go to the army with the 10,000 men, whom he had aSlernbled under tiiat place, and to the I Caprain Pacha, who is appointed SeraSkicr, to hasten his march at the head of 2000 chosen horse ; but feverai Tartars who ar rived since from tlie army, have biou ht account that Kaiidgi Ol’man,Pacha,Gene ral of the fleet, had entered the port of Varna, with feverai vessels full of troops, at the fame time that the Rutlian General appeared be.ore that pl ace,headed bySoliman Facha, the governor, they attacked and de feated the Ruffians who came to beiiege Varna, and took one of their generals and 30 officers prisoners, with all the baggage and artillery ; that Botangi Pacha met the remainder of that army, and compieated the defeat.” Vienna, Nov. 24. An Auftrianarmy, confiitmg of between 20 and 30,000 m n, hath juSt entered that part of Walchia, which belongs to the Turks, and is now possessed by the RuSHan troops. Nov. 27. Last week a courier arrived here from Verfaiiks,and another from Con stantinople. it is allured that two power ful monarchs have declared to the Porte, that if file did not accept the conditions of peace, proposed by Rullia, they would fend next Spring an army of 100,000 meu uno the Ottoman empire. Some late advices from Constantinople assure, that the Grand Sighior’s indifpoli tion i turning to a dropsy ; and that Mos -1 loun-Oglou was actually inverted with the dignity of Grand Vizir. If this news iscon fir.ned, affairs will turn greatly in favour of the Ruffians. Warsaw, Dec. 6. A courier arrived here last Sunday from the Ruffian army to Baron Stackelberg, the Ruffian minister, i with confirmation of the advantages gained ! by the Generals Prince, Dolgorucki and I Ungtrn, the 38th of October near Carafloo, over a corps of Turks, under the ScraSkier Dahiiangi Ali Pacha. Hamburgh, Dec. 13. Advices are re ceived here, that the CoiFacks of Don, and I the Tartars of Cafan, have taken arms, and that the commandant of On nbourg has been killed, by the rebels ; that General Brandt had been worsted in a smart fkirmiSh; and that General Kaw was in full march with feverai regiments, to put Stop to the rebellion. Paris, Dec. 3. The Duke of Glou cester has been here some days. It is be lieved that he will not go to court, having walked on Monday last, without any of his retinue, accomjianied by a French gentle man, to requ -ft, on his part of the i rench comedians, the representation of two parti cular pieces, for the next day. He saw with what cag.rn-fs his desires were complied with, notwithstanding the measures taken for playing two other pieces which had been announced to the public, and fixed up. Some of the guards conduct him to ail the public fpeClacles, and make room for him without naming him. Warsaw, Dec. 15. The great al vantages which the, diff rent Ruttan .corps have had over th? Turks on th: right of the Danube are confirmed, and likewise th 1 . [Numb. 164. the rest of the army paSK-J that river, in order to proSecute thole military operatic; if which have been begun with so much luc cefs. The grand Vizir has been totally defeated. It is not known yet, whether that commander has been killed upon the spot, or whether he had the good luck to save himfelf. The Ruffians have taken all the papers, the military chest, the baggage, and 150 pieces of cannon. KaminiecK, Dec. 4. The town of Siliilria is entirely blocked up by the Rui- Sians, who are preparing to bcli geit in form. Col. Leonticue’s regiment, which has fuf fered very much during the last campaign, will take up its winter quarters inWallachia, and that officer had obtained pcnnillian to gotoPetcrfburg.—General Sokikow com mands at the fi- ge of Siliftra. Warsaw, Dec. 15. The Grand Vizir’s defeat is confirmed on all Sides, and as he has not yet been found among those who efeaped, it is imagined he was killed on tty spot. Dec. 23. Private letters from Count Romanzow’s army,dated the 29th laft,bring I that the Ruffians have taken the furtrds of ■ Silii'ri. by aflhult* Vienna, Dec. 4. Accordingto letters received from the frontiers ofthc Ottom m empire,there have bet n feverai c ngagen nta since the 29th of October, between utc Ruffians and the Turks, all to the advan tage of the former. These letters add, that General Kamenfkoi had taken the town of Ruflig. LONDON* January 1. Letters from Lilbon mention, that a treaty is on foot for seeding the island of St. Catherine, in the Brazils, 10 his Catholic Majcfty, for which the Portuguese are to have an equivalent in the Well Judies. Should France attempt toafliii the Turks,itb finally resolved A till ri a and Pruflia 10 declare im mediately in favour o the Ruilians. it is now confidently repor.ed that an addi tion of ten fail of men of war will be made to our navy eiiablilhmcnt. By the carlicll advice received from Paris we learn, that a difference hath unhappily arifcD between Count Guigncs and the French Minister, thcDuked Aiguilion; in consequence of which, Count Guignes is committed close prifoncr to the Baftile. The conjedurcs of the Parisians are various; but further particulars re lative to this finguiar incident have not as yet transpired. "Jan. 6. Eighteen Jrifli lords (including nine Bdhops) have Signed a protell against the bill for permitting the Papills of Ireland to lend money on mortgages. Notwithstanding what has been said, it is certain that the French Ministry have lately made effe vto rcftcrc Coifica to the Geneofc. As this is the last kHion of business, it is ex pected the Parliament will not rife till July ; a.id as nothing will be done next winter but the granting lupplies and the current business of the year, it is laid the East-India affairs will politively befiniihed this spring. It now generally believed that the Parliament will not be diflulvedtill march twelvemonth. January u. It is laid that the French King is in a liate of mind very little removed from idiotcy or infcnfilnlity, so much, that neither the charms of his favourite’s conversation, nor the pkalurcs of the chace, are capable of rout ing him, this, it is sud, ha. cabled feverai ca bals, and given birth to a Ipirit of intrigue ex tremely alarming to the miltrcfs and the mini iier.
