Rodgers, hud taken the Cruizer, u vessel of war, the latter having taken the A merican frigate for an Fnglis/i ves sel from Greenland. The Oheion was with her. hut escaped. I here is reason to fear that this frigate has done considerable mischief a mong the vessels engaged in the Greenland fishery. By the arrival of a vessel from the coast of France, we learn, that the Plenipotentiaries hud had their first sittinsrat Prague. Preparations are making there for the reception of the minister from England. August 13 Tn consequence of the great diffi culty that has been experienced in completing the crews of the frigates now at Chatham and Sheerness, or ders were given to disarm the Chris tian the VII. and to dispose of her crew. That vessel will be re-equip ped a9speedily as possible. We can not omit relating this fact, although the conclusion to he drawn from it, is very unfavorable to us. Such measures were not necessary, when we had the ability of procuring sea men from the Mediterranean, the Adriatic, the Baltic, the U. States, and even from the coast of France. We plainly perceive, the disadvanta geous effects of the perseverance of France in the Continental system. Pampeluna continues to be block aded by a Spanish corps under Gen. O’Donoel, hut that place eannot be vigorously beseiged, as the corps of Gen. Bill is at a distance from it. for the purpose of reinforcing the army of Gen. Wellington, who occupies a strong position with the divisions of Generals Pakenhani, Pringle and Clinton. The ill success of the terrible as sault that was made upon St. Sebas tians on the 27th of July, was owing to the inundation of a ditch that se parates the Isthmus upon which St. Sebastians is situated, from the Con tinent.

It will be observed, that although the London dates are a month later in the French papers than before re ceived, there h nothing relative to this country. This is no argument that the London papers to this date were silent on the affairs of America , and Great Britain; for, if any thing > had appeared in them o a comply. - tion favorable to Peace, it is most likely that a French Editor would not be permitted to notice it. p Lisbon, July 24. LORD WELLINGTON'S ORDERS OF THE DAY. I Ibcita, July 9, I8J3. , 1. The commander of the allied forest is very anxious to call the attention of the officers of the army to the differ ence of their situation when they were placed between Portugal and Spain, and 1 that in which they will henceforth be si tuated, between this and France. 1 2. AH military precautions must be taken, and every exertion be made to ob i tain intelligence aBd to prevent surprise, i The Generals and superior officers, and the commanders of the detached corps , will take eare to preserve a regular and constant communication with the corps | to the right and left, and also with the rear guard ; and must be mindlul that 1 the soldiers, as well as all those who are attached to the army, should not absent 1 themselves from their respective corps 1 and cantonments on any account white* ver; 3. These precautions are rendered ab solutely necessary to the army, as all the frontier territory is in possession of the -nemy. The commander of the allied orces very particularly demands that •he inhabitants should be well treated, and that private property should be ' rictly respected. 4 The officers snd soldiers of the al lied army must remember that their na tions are at war with France only be cause the ruler of the French nation does r»«»t permit them to remain in peace ; but who wishes to compel them to sub mit to his y ke. They must likewise lcmemoer mat me greatest evita wmcn the enemy experienced in his devastat ing inroad into Spain and Portugal were the consequence of the gross outrages of liis soldiers, and the cruellies they com mitted, authorised and animated by their commanders, against the unhappy and peaceable inhabitants of the country. 5 To revenge, therefore, these injuries upon the subdued inhabitants of France, would be cowardly ; and unworthy (be magnanimous nations to whom the com mander of the forces is addressing him self ; and which would at last product he same evils which the enemy suffered in the Peninsula, or still greater, as their rons quewces would injure above mea sire the public interests. 6. The regulations therefore which have bten observed till now, in exacting and taking supplies from the inhabitants, .,nd in giving receipts for the same, will he continued in the villages on the French frontier, ar.d the commissaries of the armies of the different nations, are •o receive the orders of the comtnaoder m chief of the army of their respective arions as to the manner and time for •he payment of such supplies. ,» ED.
