CONTINUATION OF Foreign Intelligence, Received by theJh'tp Hunter, arrived at New-Tork from London, LONDON, Nov Thirteen persons, accused of having been in corrsfpondence with Gen. Van Damme, when he besieged Nieuport, and who endeavored, by their influence a mong the inhabitants of that place, to fa cilitate the surrender of it, have been ar retted at Ghent. The indictment against BrifTot, and the other arretted deputies, was drawn up on the 2 jth ult. The infamous Egalite, in obedience to the decree of the National Convention, is arrived at Paris, in order to take his trial with Briffot, and the other arretted depu ties. Mr. Elliot, minister plenipotentiary from the King of Great Britain, in deli vering to the States-General of Holland, the declaration relative to the affairs of France, accompanied it with a memorial, in which he said, " That his Britannic Majesty doubted not but that the senti ments contained in this declaration, were perfectly conformable to those of the other powers of Europe. The States General, in reply, thanked Mr. Elliot for the above communication, and prayed to him to make it known to the Miniftryof his Britannic Majesty,— " That, as the causes of the present war have been the fame with his Britannic Ma jesty as with their High Mightineffes,who are united by the bonds of ft rift alliance ; so the end which the States General have propofedto themselves in continuing it, have never been other than that expressed in the said Declaration ; to wit. To rc pulfe an unjust aggrelfion ; to co-operate in the defence of their allies j and to ob tain an honorable and solid peace, as well asajuft indemnification for the immense expences occasioned to the Republic and its allies, by the violence of their common enemies. In consequence, the States Ge neral fully partake ofthe sentiments of his Britannic Majesty, and will enjoy the ut most fatisfaftion, when the French nati on, restored to itfelf, and united under a government which refpe£h the sacred bonds of civil society and the rights of o- [Whole No. 494.] ther nations, (hall be able to renew its re lations ot peace and union with other states; and enforce the maintenance of them." From the LONDON GAZETTE' WHITEHALL, Nov. 6. The following dispatch was received this morning from Sir James Murray, &c. &c. by the Rt. Hon. Henry Dund'as, his majesty's principal Secretary of State for the Home Department. Champhin, OA. 30, 1793- Sir, " I have the honor to inform you of the success of an attack upon Marchiennes, which, by order of his Royal Highness, took place last night. " Eight battalions were put under the command of Major General Krav, for this enterprize. They marched at mic'- night from Orchies in three columns, each column headed by two officers and 60 volunteers, fupporfed by 300 men. These were not permitted to load. The reft of the troops of the different columns, with their cannon, followed at fomc diftancc. A detachment from the corps of Major Gen. Otto, ported by Denain, marched about the fame time, formed iu 4 columns, in similar order that the town might be attacked at once Upon all fides. The lat ter troops were discovered by the enemy's out posts, and prevented from penetrating by the opposition which they met with. Those under Gen. Kray, one column of which advanced upon the high road from Grchies, and the two others npon the left of it, got, about 2 o'clock in the morning within a ftiort distance of the town before they were perceived. dl w " The volunteers at the head of the column which was upon the road, fell in with a picquet about 100 yards from th* gate, which they surprised, killed the greater part of it, and pursued the reft l.» closely, that they entered the place 1- long with them. The troops in the town made little resistance. After being- driv en from the market plate, where they had assembled, they retreated to a con vent near it. They there proposed terms of capitulation, which Gen. Kray consented to, as they surrendered prison ers of war, with the folc condition of the officers being permitted to wear their swords. " There are 1629 prisoners, officers included, most of them troops of the line. There arelikewife 12 piecesof can non and 22 or 23 tumbrils taken. There arc supposed to be about 300 of the ene my killed. The lofsofmajor gpn". Krav's corps is between 70 and 80 tilled and wounded. Thefofs upon major gen. Ot to's fide is unknown,, hut it is not imagj uedtobe conflderable. I have the honor to be, with the greatest refpeft, Sir, your most obedt. humble ferv. Rt. lion. Henry Dumks, &c. FRANCE.
