The enemies of government seem now to content themselves with general reflecti ons against war, thereby wishing to excite a discontent against the present—bat the people of this country are not now. to be told, that the war in which we are at pre* sent engaged differs in its principle from every other that we were ever embarked in : It is a war for the preservation of our lives, and liberties, our property, and our religion ; and upon the issue will depend the future permanent happiness or misery of this country. • According to Mr. May's calculation, founded on authentic documents, the ■whole number of Indians in North Ame rica, amount to little more than 60,000.

Coast of America, brings the firftfubftantiated accounts which we have heard of the loss of the Lark, Capt. Peters, which veffej was fitted out from this port some years ago, at the commencement of those enterprizing expeditions to Nootka Sound, which have since experienced such various fhccefs, and caused so serious an-al tercation between England& Spain. The Lark was loft on Beerings Illand, off Kamfchatka and several of the crew got on (hore: but owing to the hard (hips they underwent from the inclemency of the climate, and want of necellaries, only four survived, who were re lieved by a Ruffian vessel which carried them to Siberia, where they have met with the moll humane and attentive treatment from the Ruffians. They are two Portuguese and two Lascars, and are still residing at Irkufk, in Siberia. The Phoenix found in Beals harbor a Por tuguefs Snow, commanded by Capt. Viana, oi Macoa, which had wintered on the N. . Coalt. The former Captain had been killed by the natives at Port Mulgrave, who had attempted to board the vessel. An American Ihip had left a man to learn the language and trade with the natives. Captain Moore humanely supplied him with such ne:effaries as he could spare. In a Bay near the Green Islands, a Ruffian Captain Beramhoff, who commanded a fqita dron of boats, came on board the Phoenix, and informed Captain Moore, that he came from Kodiac, and was cruizing along the Coast in quest of the natives, for the purpose of civilizing them, according to orders from the Emprel's. He had also received orders to treat the Englilh with the utmost civility : in consequence of which, he oifered Captain Moore every afliftance in his power to afford. The Ruffians were erecting some works in Cook's River. The commander mentioned that there had been no trade between Russia and China for fix years, and that they got all their tea from England: that article fold in Siberia so high as nine roubles per pound.

THOMAS MIFFLIN. Philad. 13th March 1794. By this Day's Mail. NEW-YORK, April 1. Capt. Cummins, arrived here yesterday, failed from St. George's, Grenada, the 9th March : He informs us, that accounts had been receeivea there on the 7th, by the Lady Hammond, from Martinique that the Britilh Batteries were to open cn Fort Bourbon on the morning of the Bth: That a series of heavy rains had retarded their operations, and that about fifty of the Britilh troops had beer, killed in the lines by Ihells from the Fort—but that it was completely in veiled. Capt. Cummins also informs us, that the port of Grenada is open until the id of May, for every article that can be admitted in Britilh bottoms from the United States with permiflion to enter for exportation, any thing they may have inadmissible, and carry it away with them. Capt. Cummins, has favored us with Grenada newspapers, to the 7th of March, from which we have copied the following und«r the Grenada head : St.GEORGE'S (Gre.) March 7. The Ihip Mary, Capt. Molyneux, arri ved here from Martinique on Monday morning. When the Mary failed, which was on Saturday, every thing was quiet at St. Pierre, and the mod perfeit order and regularity eftablilhed among the inha bitants, who under the protection of the Britilh arms, and the equitable command of Col. Myers, enjoyed a state of security, to which they had long been strangers. — The arms of the inhabitants were demand ed, and delivered up to the Englilh, who deposited them 'in a magazine appropria ted for that purpose. The batteries, which had been carried 011 with great expedition considering the immense labour they re quired, were completed and mounted with upwards ot an hurtoied heavy cannon ana mortars, to act against Fort Bourbon ; but their fire had not commenced, not a lingle (hot or (hell having been thrown into the Fort. Sunday night, was the time appointed for the cannonade to be gin, and it was the general opinion, that the place could not hold out more than 48 hours. In the whole of the arduous and fatiguing fetvice of erccting the batteries and carrying the guns from the store-ships, for a considerable distance thro' a very difficult country, impeded by the enemy's fire from the Fort, thefpirit of emulation pervaded every different corps of the Bri tish forces, and the mod perfect good uo derftanding and harmony reigned among the whole. The Midshipmen who com manded the Gun Boats, have all been pro moted to the rank of Lieutenants by the Admiral, in conlideration of their good conduit. A confirmation of the above account I was received by the sloop Speedwell, that failed from Martinique on Sunday after noon, with the additional circumftauce, that Belgarde had lurrendered with two hundred and fifty of his people, on condi on u? his being sent to America ; having been repulsed in ah attempt he made on a party of the English who were landing (lores for the siege, his retreat to his form er pod wag cut off, by a (kilful evolution, and the gates of Fort Bourbon were shut agnrnll him. In this fituatipn several of his party escaped to the woods, a number were killed, and the remainder laid down their arm*, Capt. Drew of the 45th par ticularly diftinguilhed himfelf on the occa fnm. Accounts are' received of the arrival of his royal highness Prince Edward at Barbadoes, and of his proceeding immediately trom thence to join the army at Martinique. Gapt. Neil, of the ship Diligence, arrived yesterday from St. Euftatia, hai alio favored us with the St. Euftatius Ga2ette, of the 7th March; the following under the Basseterre head, is the only article of intelligence we find in it. BASSETERRE, Feb. 18. Extract of a letter from Montl'errat, Febru ary 2j, 1794. " The Lovely Mary left Roseau on Sunday lift, the Sea Flower cutter arrived that morn ing and brings accounts that St. Pierre was taken by storm the 1 oth irilt. with the lot's Of Britifli troops.
