I BUONAPARTE'S EXP ED II lON. Cd" During the present anxiety respeCting the design of Buonaparte'sexpedition, and the practicability of the voyage to India, the following observation on the Mon soons, extracted from the Bombay Ca lender must be interesting. OUR readers will not require to be told, ) that onr year is divided into two grand sea sons, or as they are called, the South Weft and North East Monsoons ; that the firft generally prevails from May to the middle of September, inclusive, the other during the remaining months ; yet we must premifc this as an introduction to what follows : We need fcrcely to. observe, that during the South Weft Monsoon, all the ports and roadfteds on this fide of India deny approach —so much so that between the 15th of May and the Ift of September, ships are preclu ded by their policies from touching upon the Malabar coast, or from lying in SuratVoads between the Ift of May and the lit of Sep tember. Generally speaking the Monsoon is considered to extend from Dunder-head, the southern extremity of Ceylon, to the Persian gulph ; in order to attain which, they -who (hould fail at this season, would be obliged to make what is called a fauthern passage, that is, go firft to the south of the Equator, before they could (tretch over to the weft ward , a vayage that would occupy for Muscat about 40 days, and to Bufforah about two months ; the fame objection ex ists Sgainlt failing at this season to ajy part of the Arabian coast ; as for'the Red Sea, it is considered in vain to attempt enterjng it at this feifoo—nor can i( be said to be favourable to fail now to the cape, the Mau ius, or any port to the weft ward. To die Other fide of India <xt*lie-c»ntra ry, it is now the mtaft advantagrtms period of departing. From the middle of April even to the middle of August, a voyage to Madrafs may be made in about 12 or 15 days ; to Bengal, from 15 to 20 days ; after this time it becomes excessively tedious from the necefiity of keeping to the Eas tern fide of th* bay to avoid the violent wea ther on the Coromandel coast ; for the fame reason the south weft Monsoon is eligible to leave Bombay for any of the ports in the gulph of Bengal or the straits of Malacca : hence also it is the season for failing to Chi na ; after the 20th of August, howevrr, what is called the direst passage to China becomes very precarious, with much proba lity of finding blowing weather in the Chi na seas. With regard to the ports from which (hips may be expefted to arrive at. Bombay during this monsoon ; it may be lata down as a general rule, that'the quarters favora ble to fail during any season, are those that it is unfavourable to expeft arrivals from, and vice versa : hence, from the Persian Gulph, the Red Sea, the Cape of Good Hope, and the westward in general, this is the most seasonable period to expedt arrivals; from Muscat, a trip may now be made in 10 or 12 days, from Mocha in 20 days, and Suez in about a month ; it (hould be remarked, that after September the Red Sea admits of no egress : (hips consequently remaining there beyond that time, must continue there all the north-east moonfon, and are said to have loft their passage ; on this account the 25th of August is the latest day to which our cruisers are allowed to remain at Suez. From the Cape a pas. sage may be made in five or fix weeks, from the Mauritius, in three weeks or a inonth. The south-west monsoon is also the most faverable season in which a passage may be made from Batavia or any ports to the east ward, through these southern (traits; from Batavia to Bombay in particular, a passage may be made in about 35 days. From Madras and Bengal during the south-west monsoon, it is necessary to make the south ern passage in order to'reach Bombay ; this will require in a passage from Madras, from 30 to 40 days, and from Bengal from 45 to 60 days, frons the necefiity of working out of the river, and beating down the Bay to clear Acheen-head ; from the straits of Malacca it i* in arduous task to fail for this port, or even to any one in the Penin sula of Iniia, owing to the difficulty of wearing round Acheen-head. We have now to treat of the north-ealt monsoon, or the season which may be con sidered as included between the 15th of August and the 15th of April, in which, the firft circumstance that occurs to us to remark, is that our coaik is rendered in a peculiar manner feaure and favorable to na vigation ; it is now considered the most eli gible period for failing to the Persian Gulph, and irt general to all ports to the westward : to Muscat the trip is generally 15, and to Bufforah 28 days. The time suitable for failing to Mot ha aad Suez, is from the mid dle pi February to the middle of Match, when a passage may be nude to tSe firft in 18 days, to the second in 25. If ■» fl»'P he delayed till the end of March or the beginning of April, the passage becomes more tedious, being then obliged to make th* land to the foufhward of the island of SoCatra, before the Gulph can be entered, on account of the southerly winds which prevail, and a current setting to the north ward. After the 15th of April, a (hip bound to the Red Sea would be very likely to lose her passage. Between the 15th of August and the 15th of September, it be considered favoura ble to fail to Madras and Bengal, but after this time the season is fufpmdtd. owing to the setting in of the North-ealt monsoon on the other fide of India, which closes the ports on the coast of Coromandel, Golconda, and Oriffa, between the 15th of OCtober and the 15th of December, at least this peri od is excepted in common policies of insu rance : after this time again a passage may be made to Madras in 30, and Bengal in 50 days, this season may be deemed unfa vourable to the coast of Pegue and the straits of Malacca, but far the straits of Sunda, Ba tavia, for example, it is the best adapted : a passage thither may be Dade in 35 days. With regard to the seasonable imports in this monsoon, it is at 110 time more advanta geous than now for coming from the Coro mandel Coast and in short the whole Bay : a passage may be made from Madras in 26 days, from Bengal in a month, and Penang a month. From the Persian Gulph it is no less favourable, the paffige from Muscat be ing about !o days j and from Bufforah 28. The Red Sea is now closed ; nor is it rea sonable to exprCt arrivals from the Cape or the Straits of Sunda ; from the latter in par ticular it isalmoft impoffibleat this season to make a tolerable paflage. FOREIG N ARTICL Es. t ■»- ■ • ■ - -» EXTRACtS fROM UVCLISH P/tPSRS. LONDON, September 18. The independence which France bellows upon the Republic? which (he has formed is, to be perfeflly dependent upon her ; and the liberty of doing what (he pleases. " You (hall be King, and I will be Viceroy over you." A French Loan has been whispered at Madrid ; but Don John, who is a sulky fort of a gentleman at times, declares he will let it alone. Amsterdam once so distinguishable for the firmnefs of its police, and the decorum of its manners, is said to have now become the fink of vice and debauchery. Every street is crowded with prostitutes, and almost every house is a Brothel. Wednefaay la 11 upwards of 30c French prisoners, taken by the Hazard sloop of war (coming from the Mauritius,) were landed at Liverpool ;-:amongft many females cap tured, one heroic Joan of Arc was feei*, who (food to her gun, and commanded the mctrduuiig theKCWoii ; her child accompa nied her as (he marched along guarded by British soldiers. It now appears, that the united English, Ruffian, and Turkilh fleets are to be em ployed in traafporting from Greece to Al exandria the army of the Captain Pacha, who has left Widden, and is on his march to the Archipelago. The books, manuscripts, and curiosities lent from the Vatican at Rome, and the Library of St. Mark at Venice, to Paris, have not received any damage in carriage. The manufcrpts are in the highest preserva tion, and are bound with much elegance. Amount the antiquities are, a sacred veffelin gold filligree, of singular workmanfliip ; two gold crosses, enriched with precious (tones ; two golden crowns, one of which belonged to King Flavius Agilius, and the other to Queen Theolinds. They are of a circular form, ornamented with (tones, and were used at the coronation of the Lombard Kings, 1 here are also some large tables of marble and porphyry, with Greek inferip tions upon them. All the curiosities have been placed in the Cabinet of Antiquities at Paris. We have been told of the immense funis gained by our Naval Commanders. The public (hould also be acquainted with their liberality. The wife of Rorere, one of the Deputies sent to Cayenne, and one of those who are now arrived in England, was, with a great number of Priefti, taken some time ago by Sir Edward Pellew, in a French frigate going to Cayenne. She had fold all her property in France to go to join her un happy hulband, and had with her about 300®!.—Sir Edward ha 9 given back to her the 300 PI. and has paid the sailors their share out of his own purse. [The following important article is a specimen of the ingenuity of London Edi tors, in the art of para graph-making. 3 The complaint in the Princess Amelia's knee, is said to yield to the remedies that are now going on, by the advice of the at tending faculty, at Worthing, in Suffcx, as far as refpedts the fears that from a defeCt in thcfynovia, there would be a constant (liff nefs in the joint ; but it is doubtful when, y«ung at-ft»>ii, her Royal Highness will recover the full dfe of it. Several accounts have been given of large floating vcffels, but none equal to the fol lowing ;—Philopater, an Egyptian King, built a vessel of 40 ranks of oars—more like a castle or palace than a (hip ; being in length 420 feet, and in breadth 72 ; con taining 4000 rowers, 400 mariners, and 3000 soldiers. It appears, by a private letter from that excellent prelate, the bifkop of Killala, that the expeoces in keeping his visitants, the French, at his palace, in fix days, amounted to 5001. The French geceral who commanded at ' Killala, told the biftiop, that during all i%. campaigns he had made with he had never fuffered so much as in the fn> ii (lay he made in Ireland. The Following particulars come from a Ren tleman who was on the scene of aftioit du ring the late momentoui business in I re land, to his friend ill Bath. The circum" fiances may have appeared in the public" , papers before, but their being written bv a private hand, adds to their intercft and eftablilhes their authenticity. After giving an account of the furreod er of the French troops as appeared in tkl Gazette, he fays, " The rebels who w cr , with them, are completely cut to piece, • they were put in the front of the battle bC ! their new Jriends, and from their gre J slaughter, it it is generally underftaod on their giving way before our troops, thev I were cannonaded by the French according to their plan at the battls of Jemappe Th French would have surrendered some dav! previous provided the Irish who were in their camp, ihotild be included : this l on t Cornwallis absolutely refuftd, and the del,, ded rebels in confcquence, had no qU art« given theai. « You have no|dta how admirably lord Cornwallis conduits hmfelf ; he adheres to no party whatever j he lifters attentively to all, but judges and adls from himfelf " The limerick m ilitia have gained i mmor . ho " or 5 tli9 y fuftamed the shock of the army for upwards of two hours. Col Ve reker has got infinite credit by it —Lord Roden greatly diftinguilhed himfelf,' and his regiment behaved in a moll gallant manner. In the firft charge to animate his men, he advanced so far before his regiment, that he fell into the hands of the enemy ; which when the regiment perceived, they determin! Ed to a man to retak, him, or perifl, in the attempt---they accordingly charged again with such hrmnels and impetunfity, that they brought off their adored colon*! in triumph. . This little business has giver, such an energy to the army, and to militia regiments in particular, that I verilv believe were the French to effed another 'landing they would not keep their ground a second day." September i j. Carnot, it is laid, resides at a village near Linti, where, under an affiimed name, he en joys bare toleration, without the slightest favor or countenance from the Austrian government. He is busily employed in writing memoirs of the revolution, which will difclo'fe many interesting secrets, and which more particularly will illul trate those military operations which he planned and of which the consequences seem likely to change the whole face ef the earth. The Roman territory continues to be> dread fully diftrafled. Troop, are constantly March ing from qne place to another to quell the dis turbances.

September 28. This day a mail arrived from Dublin . Teeling, who many expeded would receive a pardon, on account of the humanity he had (hewn in redrawing the vindi&ive pas. fions of the rebels who had joined the French on their landing, has been executed, a* a warning to other natural born fubjefts, not to deceive themselves by a belief, that afting under a foreign commiflion will be held a good plea for ads of rebellion. September 29. ai -^' v '*V ot out cruizers along the eosft from Dunkirk to Ollcnd, the French troops in that quar ter are greatly harrafled. Sometime! an attack.it threatened at one point, sometimes at another, and the enemy's forces, much weakened by drafts to the Rhine, areexpofed to incessant fatigue. Of the companions of Pichegru, Ramelle wasCom mamder of the National Guard of Paris; Willot was a Diputy, and had commanded the troops of the liue at Marseilles; Roveie was a Marquis under theold Government, was deeply implicated in forrieof those bloody scenes which passed at in 1791; but > n <797, became onc °f 'he mod zealous and formida ble opponents of the Direflory, in the Couucitof Five Hundred. Suard, one of the writers sentenced to tranl"- p rtation, on the 4th of September, has found an aiylum at the house of his old friend M Nec ker, at Copet, where that ex-minister resides, hitherto, undiftnrbed by the florins of the Hel vetic Revolution.

Barbarities of the United Iri/hmen: DUBLIN, Sept. ?1 . Wcdnefday night, a numerous gin'g of above 100 desperadoes, entered the house of Mri. Lamb, near Old Bawn and Tallagh, in th« county of Dublin, and plundered it of cash, and every portable article of value it contained. While the villains were in the house, they ap peared to be under great apprchenfion, for they were frequently heard to fay, "Boys, mind the piquet," which wl suppose was a guard of their party they Rationed at the outside, to be oJ the watch. They were goin« to hang a gentlemis who was a visitor in she house, arid had a re?e about his neck for the purpafe ; but some l«i» cruel than their comrades, interfered, and fjv ed his life. On Wednesday iaft a poor inoffenfive jsm6» named James -Wiley, was seized by a party of Wicklow Rebel*, as he was saving his little crop of hay on the land* of Merganftown in that county : he was carried by them toafbort distance from his own habitation, and placed!- gjtnlt a wall by the mercilef* villains, whofirfd at him, and lodged three balls in his head.
