By accounis received fjom the armament of fir James Pulteney, and rear admiral fir John Borlafe Warren, of the id instant, we learn that the troops were to proceed to tlie Mediterra nean, under convey of the Gibraltar «nj Ajax line of butle (hips, and thut the tear admiral and the remainder of the squadron were to re turn to rejoin the grand fleet under Earl St. Vincent.

About 40 minutes past 12 they at-' tacked her with the jM-.avft bravery, meet ing with desperate refinance, her comman der having laid if.e hatches over to prevent her people giving way, and cheered as the boats advanced, but notwithstanding this determined opposition (he was carried in 15 minutes. lam sorry to add Lieut.

Our loss has been as«peY enclosed lift, the greater part occasioned by the del'perate conduft of her commander, who was mor tally wounded, two much praise cannot be given t» those defefving officers and men who so gallantly fbppoited lieut.

Colonel Stewart of the 67th regi'jient, commanding the rifle corps, and captain Turrens, of the std5 td (ill batta!- lion) are among the wounded ; the latter I fear mortally." Extraft of a letter from 011 board the Chan nel Fleet, off Ulhint, dated the 3d of September, 1800 " The Speedwell revenue cutter joined tie fleet last night, w th the unpleasant news of the failure of the expedition which failed from Ouiberon Bay under Rear Admiral Sir J. B. Warren and Sir E. Ptllew. 'l'he ob ieft of this enterprize was to take pofleffioh of the Spanilh fhipp'mg, and to burn the ar renal, dock yards, See. in flie port of Ferrol ; but after landing the troops and marines, See. 011 the 25th and 26th of last month, the mea sure was tVund impraftical.le, and therefore a re*embarkation took place on the 27th, without loss, and the armament (leered with a fair wind further to the fouthwa'd. Ihe naval force detached on this service are the Renown, Sir J. B. Warren's flag fliip, London, Warrior, Gibraltar, Impereux, Camden, and Cnurageux, of the line} three frigates, two sire-ships, several gun boats, and numerous transports armed en flute, car rying 1 3,000 effcclive troops. Our fleet are in high health and spirits. Ihe combined enemy in Bred, it does not appear, have any intention of coining out ; their preparations, by all the adviceswe get from neutral vefiels, are more dire ft t« the defence and ferurity of their harbour and (hipping, than to the more hazardous projeft of meeting U3 at fe* 1 " We undrrfland that there was no less than eleven fail ot Spanifli (hips of the line in the harbour of Ferrol ; which would ol course have fallen into our hauds, had we made ourselves matters of that place. w« understand that a colony of Ghinefc have lately fettled at Tonor, where they It ive err died a lmall tort and a g*rrtfnn of about fifty foldieri. 'i'lie chief articles of commerce produced in tbis island are beeswax and fand.il wood. It is aflerted, in letters from the Hague, that the rX*y of Al>;iers*h.>s ordered his Cor lairs to take all Eiiglilh merchant (l)ips which they (liall meet with. September 12. Letters from the army under the command of Sir James Pulteney, dated on ibe if! in flan*, from Bay, 011 the coast of Spain, concur in ftaii.i< from the general opinion in the flee:, that Gibraltar would be the next rendezvous of the armament, and they were expetled to put to sea egain from Vigo Bay on the id inflant. How far this opinion may be correft, we will not pretend to fay ; but we think it not improbable, for the pre lent circumstances of Portugal, that they may now be at anchor in the Tagus. The expedition has been joined by the remaining part of the guards, and Hompefch's mounted riflemen from Ireland. We last Aight rrcrived, by express, Paris ; papers to the 9th inHant. Their eontr-ntc arr not entitled to particular notice. It 18 only remarkable, with how much care all mention of negotiation or communication with this country,is avoided. From diffe rent parts of the continent we find articles which represent the (late of the French ar mies as equal to the contest in which tjhey fuppole they are fliov tly, by the termination 'of the armiflice, to be engaged. An Augs burgh article of the 29th ultimo, Hates, on the other hand, that the Archduke Charles has, in the event of the resumption of hosti lities, been prevailed upon to take the com mand of the Austrian army. The feftival of the New-Y'ar, according to the republ fan calendar, which will begin on the 23d of September, is to be celebrated according to a plan presented by the Minister of the Interior, when particular honours are to be to the memory of Marlhal Turenne. General Kleber who fell 011 the fame day with Ge neral Deffaix (the 14th ot June), is to lhare in th» monument which the French govern ment has voted to the memory of the latter general. These paperr were brought to Dover by a neutral v t flVl, which arrived there from Ca lais yesterday. Yesterday arrived the Hamburgh mail due on Wednesday. Its contents relate almost exclulivtly to the notice which has been given by the French generals throughout the whole line, of the ceffacion of the armistice, and the eonfequences which it is fuppoled wHI result from that event, The German journalilH, not aware, perhaps, that these coulVquences depend on circumstances foreign to their own country, speculate on the bom bardment of Philipfbtirgh and of Ulm as im mediately at hand. The defence of Bohemia is stated to be an objeft to which the Auftri ant are turning their attention, as that king dom is threatened with an invaGon. A great part of the Auflrian troops are re treating towards the frontiers of it, i:i order to prevent their retreat being cut off by tilt j Frcfich division of ColJaud. * An article from the banks of the Mains, reprcfents the ..reparations tor war in that quarter, as being made by the French with great aftivity. Oil the past of the Auflri ans, it we may bslieve the Vienna article, which is ut the 27th 1 , the lame aftivity does init prevail, though the hopes ol a favorable anl'wer from Paris are net (anguine. His Imperial Majeßy has ordered that the fame honours (hall be paid by tl? garrison of Vienna to Admiral Nellon, as are paid to Foreign /\mba(ladors. In cmtf ouerice of the fufpicionscntertain eJ by Government, that a party in France is endeavouViiig to. piilage this country, by gambling in our funds, the Duke of Port land has determined to lend every alien out of the country, who is known to be con- I cerVied in such tranfaftions.

According to advices received from Ge neral Sir Ralph Abercrombie, we learn that Grraham had been sent with 4000 troops and a numerous train of artillery to the at tack of Malta. Sir R. Abcicrombie also went thither in person, with two regiments confiding of loco men each, from Leghorn ; but after inlpeiliiig the llrength of the works, and their il.\te of d-fence, it was thought prudent to abandon the attempt, and withdraw ouT [oices, which had heen re-landed at Minorca. It is however added, that they have again f.-.iled towaids the coafl of lialjytc co-operate as circumflances may prej'snt, with the Austrian army com manded by General Mela*.

C .uut Lehr bach has arrived here from Alt-Oettingen. Count St. Julien is likewise agaii) here.

A Proclamation has just been publilhed throughout the kingdom of Bohemia dated the 27th of July, wbish invites all faithfull fubjrrts who are difpafed to march to the frontiers to defend their religion, their pro perty, and their Sovereign, to make a deslar atjon of arms tl.ey polTeft, in order that thole who are in want may be provided.

AUSBOURG, Aug. 24. In the representations addressed to the emperor by the circle ot Franconia, the dates declare that they can no longer con tinue to pay their contingents with the ar my of the Empire, utilefs his majelty can alleviate the burthen of the contribution < f fix millions, which has been iiwpofed by ge neral M.oreau.

The report that his royal highness the Duke of Ktnt was immediately to take upon him the government of this kingdom, we are authorised to (late, is totally unlouu ded ; it being an event, it' ever in the con templation of the Britilli cabinet, that in all probability will wot take place during the present war, or at lead nut in the entangled, critical and uutower'd (late of politics at this time. It is with concern we (late, that the Eng lish papers lately received, contain accounts of dillurbances in different parts of the country on account of an unexpt&ed raise in the price of provilions.
