F RIDA V, March 18.
Qnfutfday the infant, arrived at Nbw-
You, the Mercu r y Packet, from Fal
mouth, votth thefollo'wing
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
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
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 .

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

Warsaw, Dec. 15. The Grand Vizir’s

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
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.

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
