The following event, which happened;
during the great fire in tiie town of Z -he
denick, deferves to he recorded :—
" One houfe only efcaped th - fury of the
flames; it was inhabited by a trooper be
longing to the garnion, named Lu< k. His
little daughter, about five years old, was
in the houie when the fire broke out, and 1
ttie manner i:i which Ihe efcap.d is next to
a miracle. The trooper and his wife w-nt
out early in the morning to the r work, and
according to the cultom of the labourers,
they left the little girl behind. At the'
found of the fire-bell, the mother perceiv
ed, from the field in which fhe was at work,
•.he flames afcendmg from all parts of the!
town ; fhe ran immediately to her houfe,!
haftened to colledt a few articles of wear
ing apparel in order to depofit them in fome
place of fafety out of the town, defining!
the child to remain quietly in the houfe till 1
ihe. returned; yet, notwitbftandmg (he!
made the greateft hafte, the flames had
gained luch ftrength that fhe was not able
to gain the habitation in which fhe had left
:he only fruit of her affection : /he was
<carce able to fave ht rfelf.
" The next morning the father entered
the town, reduced to afhes, and was amaz
ed to fee Ins houfe {landing upright and
untouched ; he approached it with a throb
Ling bofom, full of impatience, his ey
only fought his infant ; bi"t what was his
joy in looking in through the window,-to
perceive his little daughter, uuite eafy,
laying with the cau Tears of traufport
1 and gratitude to Providence rart down hi:;
••.hecks ; he rallied into the houfe. " Papa,"
• cried the child as loon as fhe faw him.
u why have yon been fo long away, there
> was a great fire, the room was quite light
( with it, 1 was very much afraid, but lain
now quiet, give me a bit of bread, tor 1
i am very hungry."

i Newspapers. The following ac
count oi the various publications in the
■ world, is given in a German paper : " There
is but one paper published in Portugal, and
that only appears three times a week ; it is
c;inducted by a German, who takes care to
exclude only the French news, while he ad
-lin its thofe of Madrid, Hamburgh, and
London. In China there is only one ga
zette a week, but it is a folio volume : it
contains no foreign news, but merely the
hiitory of the events in the country. Then
is no joking in if about truth, for in 1726,
one o!:' the writers having thought propei
to infert fome tulle intelligence, See. &cc.
was condemned to lol'e Ins head ; the em
peror himfelf lometimes contributes to this
paper. In 1798, the prefent emperor in
ierted a funeral oration, which he compofed
upon his predecelfor. It is a lingular cir
cn nlhnce that fome accounts once appear
ed in it, which it w, s thought improper to
make knowi . 1 iiat particular number was
imrneuia:ely fiapprelled, and tlie peoplt
were for hi t ever to fpeak of it in future.
Tnere is a paper publilhed in the Perliar
language at Delhi,the capital ot the (Jieat
Mogul. Some curious per lons have pre
-I'erved copies of the paper of the IBth Fe
bruary, 1 798, which is five French ells in
length. The intelligence contained in ii

The Journal des Debats contains the
following details of circumltances r fpe Cl
ing the huiband and wife who lately went
tor theexprel's purpofe of c mmitti .g l'ui
cide in the Flylian Fields' at Paris. The
particulars are communicated in a letter to
the Fditor from the chief l'urgeon of the
jholpital to which the unfortunate furvivor
| was conveyed.—lt is now about tlx months
; iince Gampagn»c, aged thirty-four, accom
panied by his wile Marie joleph Faj?rit,
then in the tweiity-fith yt rt r of her age,
came tVcm Bruffels to Par,3 with a fum of
money amounting to 500 Louis d'ors, b<-
nig tlie wreck of an immenfe fortune, lit
{Concerted commercial {peculations in lefs
• than fifteen days deprived him of 200 Louis
,d'ors ; ieiTlibly affe.£led with this lols,
•Campagnac lought to repair it in a gaming
jhoi.lt •, there he wa.3 fpoiled of remain -
■der in a very Ihort time. He 101 l the
clothes, the jewels, nay even the marriage'
'ring of his wife. On his return to the t'ur-j
jnilhcd lodging, which he occupied in the]
j line d'Or lean ? Saint Honor e, he approach-?
jed ms wife bathed in tears, and (aid to her,!
•' happinefs, my friend, can no longer be
|< ur portion I indigence or death ; can you
ilmve the courage to adopt this laft with
.your hnfband I." At firll (lie helitated, but
[at length agreed to the propofal. The
evening of the 22d of Au,;ult was fixt'd
upon lor the ca allrophe, but at half paft
■eight on the evening of the 2 lit, Canipag.
Jn,tc no longer being able, without doubt,
to fupport the mifrrics of life, prevailed
upon h;s young wife to take a walk in tht
;Kiy!'nn Field: ; they entered into the (hop
ol Dubcti it, a cook, where they made a
'very fru-al repafl. Ab'ut eleven o'clock
Campagnac conduced her to the bank of
jthe river, where tin y were feen linked in
leach'others arms, taking a noft tender adieu.
The pre King folicitations which this inter
letting wnman addrelTed to her huiband t >
reltorc h.m to courage, were diltindtly
heard at a diltance. All was vain, 44 the
Irel'olution is taken fa d he, " and we can
!not furvive without infamy. Recollect
your promifes." He tied' a bandage ovei
her eyes; " open your mouth" laid he ;
| lie introduced the end of the piftol into hei
imouth, and executed his delign ; a fecond
pillol terminated his own life. The inner
jiait of the unfortunate woman's mouth if
torn in a molt frightful manner ; the throat
too is in a veiy deplorable It ue. Her re
covery, however, is not altogether defpair
ed of. It's worth while to obferve, that
Campagnac thr w himfelf from the Pont
Neul into the river, immediately after the
great lofs he fuiiaiued, about fix months
before the final cataflxophe.
