PARIS, September 39-
The Pope's Brief to the cn,i:.iitniiondl
Jjishops of France.
The Pope has fent to M. Spina a
Bri f, dated t!ie i sth of Auguft (the
fame date as that of the Concordat and
the Brief to th; legitimate bilhops), for
the purpofe of obtaining their refigna- !
tioiv.
The fubft<(nc« of the Brief to M. Spi- j
na is, that his holinefs li'd feen at j
length happily terminated the negoria
tions with the Fr-uch government, and j
the Catholic religion re-cftnblifhed in j
that country after fo many troubles and
agitations : but that his fatisfa&ion was
not complete; and that ha flioufd even
he extremely unhappy, fhonhi J»ny of
them negle£t this happy opportunity of
re-uniting themfelves to the Holy See,
and not conform zealoufly with the re
coMciiiation which his tendernefs offer;; ,
to thfcm a'l, ill imitation of our Saviour
and of divine charity.
That for tlris realbn tlie Holy Father :
deemed it necc.Tary to make his difpoli
tions known through tlie medium of M. ■
Spina, and the means v/hich he thought ■
moft expedient to he taken by all thofe !
who held archbifhoprics or bifhoprics ill j
France, without being inftitutcd into :
them by the apoftotlc See.
That for that purpofe M. Spina would
inform fhem of the gracious will of the
Holy Father, and his ardent willies »f ,
putting an end to all the distentions i
which agitate France, to re-unite ail i
hearts within his bofom, and in all the j
bonds of glowing charity. That he does j
not entertain a liifpicion that they will ;
deny his felicitations, orhefitate to tef
tify to ldm in writing their obedience
and fubniiffion to tlie Sovereign I'on
tiff: their fincere adhefion to all the de
cilionsof the Holy See refpe&ing the cc- 1
clefiaftical affairs of France ; and finally,
their prompt refignation of the arch
epifcopal and epifcopal Sees which they
occupy without his authority. ,
That he recommends to M. Spina to
neglect nothing which may bring this
great work to a happy termination ; and
to perfuade them that his holiuefs will
receive them with the more good will,
and the more proofs of his pa
ternal and apoftolic love, ifi proportion
as they haften to yield to his requeft.—
That to him it would be a fubjedt of
much grief, if any individual of them
rejected his paternal advice, or rcfufed
to comply with his requeft ; in line, that
his Holiuefs conceived the ftronger
hopes, as the declaration of his inten
tions was made at the period of the fejli
* val which the church celebrates
in honor of the affumption of the Vir
gin Mother of God ) that he confiders
that circumftance as a happy prefage in
favor of religion, the glory of the
church, the profperity of France, and
the tranquility of the whole world, hav
ing every confidence in the interceffion
of that virgin, whom France has for a
long time recognifed as its fpecial pa
tronefj, See.
The moment the bifhops refiding in
Frince were made acquainted with the
difpofition of the brief of his holinsfs,
dated the 15th of Auguft, they haftened
to comply with it. Tlie bifhopof Mar- •
feilles, who is 92 years old, wrote on
the 2ift inft, to the bifhop of Corinth,
as follows u 1 receive with refpedt and
filial fubmiflion the brief which you ad- '
' drefs to me on the part of our Holy j
Father the Pope. Full of veneration ;
and obedience to his decrees, and al- ;
ways defirous of being; united with him |
i in heart and fpirit, I hefitate not to !
trafffmit to his holinefs my refignation ;
of the bifhopric of Maneilles. It is
fnfEcient that he deems it necefiary to 1
the prefervation of religion in France,
to induce my acquiefcence."
" From a regard to religion,'' fays the
bifhop of Senlis, late Grand Almoner of
France, in his letter of the fame date,
" to preferve the unity ef the Catholic
! church, and to aflift the paternal invita
tions of his Holinefs, I voluntarily and
cheerfully abdicate the epifcopal See of
Senlis, and deliver my free refignation
of it t* his holinefs.''
i The liifliop of St. Claude had previ
oufly made the fame declaration. His
- letter of the Ift of the fame month
i lays* " I too much refp-ct the orders of
i his Holinefs, m>t to eonfortn to them.
- No'facrilice will <rive hie pain, when it
; tends to the re-efUbli'hment of religion,
s and the glory of its divine Author."
.1 " B.'ing appointed a bifliop for the
* gdod or the people," fays the bilhop of
, St. Papon!, in his letter of refigr.ation,
e " I ceafe to be fo, that nothing may op
:i p >fe their future union ; overjoyed at
- having it in my power, at this price, to
y contribute to the peace of the church,
- and the prbfperity of Frenchmen."
"•I think my felt hap y ,f Says the hi
fi iop of Alais " inbeing able to concur,
as much as pofTible, by my reflgnatioii,
n in the views of wifdom, peace, and con
e I ciliation, which his Holinefs propof s
|to himfelf. t pray God to blels his
■3 J pious intentions, and to fpare him thole
■- i contradi&ions which may atfiicl his pa
, j ternal heart."
! The religriations of the bi 11 1 ops of St.
, | Mafo and Angers ar»r written in the
d , fame fpirit; and thefe ientiments are
- perfectly conformable to the declaration
made by thirtv hifh >ps who were mem
bers ofthe Coiiftituent AiTembly. oil the
S.l of May 1791. We deliver
t! onr rsl'.gnations into yoar bands," laid
their letter to the Sovereign Pontiff, " in
oruer that there may be no longer any
a obflncle to l'uch means as your Holinefs
e ni ;y take in your wild >m, for re-eflab
;l iilhmg peace in the bofom of the Oalli
r can Church ;*nnd a little farther, to
- ! pledge as it were the aficnt of their col
! league?, they add, " we have hitherto
- ; lir.d tlie advantage of obtaining, in the
i i explanation of our principles, their una
- nimous fuflVagrs, and it Is not when we
1 i farther offer every thing in our power
i to remove every obflacle that we have
1 to ft .ir being difappointed by their noble
s and generous difpolitions."
f LONDON, Oa. 8.
f OFFICIAL.
, We have authority to ftate that the
- afiertion in our paper of yefterday, that
s ; M. Otto, was informed of the capitula
r tion of Alexandria at'the time he fign
| ed th preliminaries and communicated
- ; it to Lord Hawkefbury, is totally defli
. ! tvite of foundation. We have good rea
. • fou to believe that the French govern
c • me fit had no expedition that this event
; j would take place for forne time ; and wc
l i are confident that M. Otto had no in
> | timation even of the probability of it; —
i he learnt it from the public papers the
I next day, and applied for a permiffion to
: forward this intelligence to Paris, which
f , was granted to him.

,; 'reception 0 f the French en
toy.
1 | > O i Friday night about 9 o'clock,
. Citizen Lauretton, general of brigade
» in the French fervice, and one of l»o
--. : napartc's chief aide's-de-camp, landed at
. Dover with his fuice, and the copy of
„ 1 the preliminaries of p.-ace, formally ra
, tided by the Chief Conful. By the vef
. fel which brought him over, we recei/-
r ed Paris Journals to the Bth, which an
t nounce that peace has been figned he~
> twee© France and Portugal ■; and that
3 the difpute between Fruffia and Auftria
{ refpeflnig the liifliopric of Munfler af
-1 fumes a more ferious alpcift. The French
? funds have l i'fen again to 54. It is the
. great load of floating debt that muft be
j funded at the peace which keeps down
. their pricc, as we underhand.
f Citizen Latlrefton, after putting up at
, the City of London Inn, Dover, imme
l diately difpatched one of his couriers,
richly drefled in fcariet and gold, to or
- uer horfes on the road for the French
. envoy, and to apprife citizen Otto of
. his arrival. General Laurellon himfelf,
5 after fome refreflnnent, followed, and
. reached Weflminfler-bridge about 12
; o'clock at noon on Saturday ; the horfes
i of his coach, and the drivers, decorated
. with blue ribbons, and the word Peace
[ upon the in. In this manner the French
. envoy made his triumphal entry ; and a
i mob lbon colleft'd, running after the
i carriage, which drove to citizen Otto's,
. the corner of Hereford and Oxford
ftreets, near Tyburn Turnpike. After
i remaining a few minutes with M. Otto,
; that gentleman returned into the carri
, age with Citizen Laurefton, and they
I drove down Oxford-flreet, for Redifh's
. j Hotel in St. where apart
! raents had bf-en taken for the French
, envoy. At Otto's door the mob ircreaf
[ «d amazingly, exclaiming " Peace for
. ■ rver"—" Long live Bonaparte," ?cc.
r I The populace imagined that Laurellon
i 1 was Joleph Bonaparte, and fome fup
. | pofed it was Bonaparte himfelf. Hence
i i the acclamations of joy at feeing him
i 1 were loud and inceifant. In Oxford
i ; flreet, a fliort diftance from M. Otto's
, j houfe, they (topped the coach, took the
i 1 horfes out, and dre .. the carriage down
, | Bond-ftreet to Redifh's Hotel, rending
the air with Ihouts of joy, fome of them
mounting the tri-coloured cockade.—
Laurefton repeatedly bowed, and feem
ed much pleafed with his recepticn ;
but really, we believe, much alarmed
for his perfonal fafety. After he alight
ed at Reddilh's Hotel, he went to the'
fir ft floor window (M. Otto leading him
up to it, and prefenting him) and fhewed
himfelf ta the populace, repeatedly i
bowt'dto them. He threw a handful o!
guineas, .which were not, we fear, divi
ded on the principles of equality ; he
that caught n:oft keeping all he caught.
Laurefton was goim/ to repeat this, when
as we are r c Id, Ivl. Otto begged him to
defift, as he might oil end tiie gove>n
ment. After being a fliort time in Red
dilh'B Hotel, Laurellon and Otto return
ed into the carriage to proceed to Lord
Kawkcfbury's office, that they might
: formally exchange the ratifications.
The mob, greatly increaied, followed
the. carriage with redoubled acclama
tions, and in St. j imes'-fquare they
; agaili flopped it, took out tire horfes, and
drew it in triumph to Lord Hawkef
bury's oSice in Downing-Street, ihout
ing u Peace f>r ever," " Long .fjve Bo
napartehe. The mob drew the car
riagehy laying hold of each others hands,
and in this manner forming lines one
hundred long at leaf}.—They feemed
quite frantic, getting up belli.id, oil the
box, hanging on the wheels, and even
■ opening the doors, that they might fee
■ this friend of Bonaparte's. In the con
; fulion and uproar, fcveral perfotis were
j thrown down and trampled tinder foot,
j two of whom, it was thought would not
! furvive. Soon aftei two o'clock the car
riage reached Lord Hawkefbury's office,
into which citizen Lnurefton and M.
entered and exchanged the ratifica
tions. About ha f pafl two, the cannon
in the Park announced thia great event, j
and at three the Tower guns did the j
fame.—At the found of tiie guns, the
populace fcaiapcred alcng all the neigh
bouring ftreets, pouring into the Park,
rejoicing, defircus of witnefling this
fcene. The carriage of citizen Laitref
ton having the horfes put to, was in the
mean time removed lroui Dowi.ing-
Street, round throtigh the Horfe-Guards,
to the entrance from the Park of Lord i
Hawkefbury's office, that thof- gentle- I
men might there get into it privately,
and drive away ; but the vigilance of
the populace was not to be eluded. The
moment Laurellon and Otto entered, the
horfes were again taken out, and the
coach was along in triumph by
the mob ; Mr. Cox, the meflVnger, who
was in it alfo, adVmg as Reerfman, or ra
ther director of the way. They pro
ceeded to the back door of the Admiral
ty, whi h leads out upon the parade.
Here Laurefton and Otto entered, and
rema ned forne time with the Lords ;—
Lord Hood was ilfo prefent. Karl St.
Vincent came out with the two citi
zens, and very good humonredly add re fl
ed the mob thus: Gentlemen 1 Gentle- '
men! (the populace gave his Lordlhip j
three huzzas) let me re que ft you to be
•as orderly as poffible ; and if you are de. i
termined to draw the gentleman, acc ~ra
panied by M. Otto, 1 rcqucil of you to
be careful, and not overturn the carri
age." The populace allured his Lord-
Ihip they would he careful of and refpeft
ful to the ftrangers. Away tliey drew
the carriage with (bouts of applaud
through St. Jameses Park, round the
Palace, by the StaU'-yard, making the
old walls of our Royal Court fhake
at •'heir acclamations. They went up
St. James's flreet,and again fafely land
ed the two citizens at Reddifli's hotel,
before three o'clock. Laureflon again
paid his refpeiffs to the populace, and
after withdrawing, Sc. Jamcs's-flreet re
mained ftowded with people, hoping liill
to fee him. At four o'clock, his carri
age having been taken to Bennet-flrctt
for concealment, he left the hotel with
M. Otto's brother to walk to his car
riage, and proceed to M. Otto's to din
der ; but the mob recognizing him by
his uniform, and collecting abuut him,
h* returned back to Reddifli's, where
he undreffed, and put on plain clothes,
in which he eft aped ohfervation, and
dined at M. Ottu's, which he left at
eight o'clock, returned to Reddifli's, and
went to bed before ten o'clock, very
tired. The courier who preceded him
fiom Dover repeatedly fll afleep on
horfeback, and was wakened by his guide
(a Dover poft-boy) accompanying him
on the road. The poor fellow was iptite
worn out, galled with riding & fatigued.
Unufed to ride at a fmart trot, and un
able to keep company with Liis compani
on, he often cried out, in great agony,
Ah I you gallop ■'you gallop I which was
all the EngJifli he could command. Soon
after Laurefton entered Reddilh's hotel
the laft time, Mr. Fox, with three or
four friends, walked down St. James's
ftreet, on their way to the Shakefpeare
tavern, attracting, it may be fuppofed,
a great deal of notice, mixed with mur
muring applaufe.
Between four and five o'clock Mr.
Fox and his friends fat down to dinner,
at the Shakefpeare Tavern, to celebrat;-
the anniverfary of his ele&ion ; and it
will be feen that his fprech is an impor
tant ccmifientaryon the peace, materi
ally connt&ed with the great events
of Saturday which we have been de
fcribing. He fa id in fubftauce, that
i the war had been undertaken for an
mvjnft obje£\, namely to fore? upon an
independent nation a form of govern
ment which it abhorred, and with the
defign of deftroyilig the rights of man
kind ; the peace was precifely fuch as it
ought to be, difgraceful to. the authors
of the in this country, who have
failed in all their real objects, and glo
rious to the enemy who have fttcceeded
iin thsm all as they ought to do. This
Is Mi'. I'b.Vs of the peace,
of which foyne of the. 'Freak-,y Journals
ffi&e boasted! We could not learn whe
ther Mr. Fox will attend Parliament or
not. From what we collided we think
- he will not. But ah fence cannot now
be Occafioned by the want of counte
nance given to his opinions in-the Houie
of commons. We can pohtivtly Hate,
what the reader will not Relieve till be
proceeds further, that Mr. Fox and his
friends, hitherto called th~ Opposition,
will have a great majority in both houfes
of parliament. Tins will not be ciii'pu
ted, when the" public recollect, as they
will on the firft mention of it, that Ad
diugtoh, 1-M-d Ilawkefoury, and the
whole of the prefent adminiftration, to
gether with Ml. Pitt and hii friends,have
on the great political que ft ion which has
agitated the empire for nine years, come
orer entirely to the opinions of Oppo
sition, and have adopted then , by liig
friatiling the war in the conditions of
the pescf-.
'1 he illuminations on Saturday began
with the night, and were f.> general,
that we had aim oil fa id t hey were utii
, verfal. A minute description of them
wi!i be found in another part of this pa
per. They were only exceeded by the *
illuminations on the King*.* recovery.
There were very, very few houfes in
London that* were not liVhfed up ; thofe
of the pooreil clafft s were the mod bfil
| 11 ant, comparatively fpealirg. The ren
llVn we will ftate to-morrow. We never
j before heard lb many guns and piftols
fired oil in the ftjeets, to the annoyance
lof pnlfsngers and horfes. It feemsd as
: it the members of the volunteer corps
were giving a farewell lalute. In *
window in Oxford ftreet, oppo'i te to M.
| Otto's:, was a pitflitie of Bonaparte, with
| this infeription : " The S.ivijur of the
Uiu'perse/" at this feveral of the St.
i George's volunteers in their uniforms
were gaping.
The prr prietors of the Porcupine newf
paper, confidently, chfapproviug of the
peace, iince they approved of the \yar,
would not illuminate. In conlequence,
the windows of the office, in Southamp
ton ftreet', were fmalhed to piece?, and
thole of the houfe of the chief proprietor,
in Pall Mali, fhared the fame fate. The
iigu of the Bible*.the Crown and Mitre 1 ,
over the window, was befmearcd with
dirt, or rather with glory in the cattle,
its the proprietor will, no doubt affert ;
j and juft with as much truth as it i; fa id
Lord ILtwkelburv has covered himllff
with glory in bguing the peace, wbcWf
his former ianguage were now afted upon,
i would he in reality befmeared with diii
' like the fjgn- above mentioned,—The i!-
i hnninatiori whs fo great, the fky lb red,
! that lVime miles from town, London lock
ed as if it were on ire. Thejs» of r! s
mob, however, had not begun ; it never
does on thefe orcalion? till about i ..nt,
o'clock, when the people begin to put
out their lights, and go to bed, and Hy
ing detachments of the mob break the
windows of a whole Itreet.—The fi n
we lay, had not begun, when at eleven
o'clock a moft tremendous ftorm came
on, which foon cleared the ftreets, pre
ferved perfeA tranquility, ftillnefs even,
fent his Maiefty, tlv People, home well
ducked, and laved the hi t;fe-keep<:r
| windows.
The lightning began to {hew itielf
flightly early in the evening ; but at 1 1
o'clock it luddcnly became molt vivid,
flafhing every minute, illuminating the
town like the fun, and obfeuring the
light of the candles. So much light
ning has not been feen in London liliefe
twenty years, never fince a violent ftorm
which did great damage on the Bth of
October, 1780. The lightning on Sa
turday night was accompanied by loud
and repeated claps cf thunder,"While the
torrent of rain fell for feveral hour?*
The advocates of the war may interpret;
thin as a mark of the wrath of heaven
at the peace ; the fupporters oflhis peace
may call it an approbation of that mea
ftire. It extingui.'hed many of the lamps.
It is remarkable, that at the Admiralty
the crown was drowned out, but the an-*
chor remained. The entertainments
concluded at Druty-laue treatre in tlie
tuidd of this ftorm, which produced the
greatcft conflernation in the crouded
Coffee-rooms and lobbies, where- the light
ning flalhed, while the thunder roared.
Several ladies fainted, and the (bricks
and groans of others were awful.
'Yeilcrday, about noon, nearly lOCO
