Foreign Intelligence. £]y the ship Echo, arrived at Halifax* LONDON, Oa. 19. Letters from Berlin Hate, that the Mar iqmfs de LuChefini h*Toon to have, a place in fcim with diftindlion. Although he does not enjoy the fame favor as during the late reigir; he poff-ffes great influence,through the means of M. Lomoard, Secretary of Foreign Affairs and M. de Koclwitz, the King's Adjutant, who are both in favor. M. de Luche fini infills that Prullia ought to take an a£tive part in the general concerns of Europe. He is not friendly to Auftrin, and he detHls Thugtit. In the whole contents of the Paris papers that arrived on Wedncfday evening, we find but one tiling of importance, the double change which has taken place in the Adminiflrations of Vienna and of Paris. From thi 3, though no pafitive ccnfrqucMices can bs deduced, we way, at leall, dpw fonie probably inferences. The appointment of Count Le'nroach, a man whom a paper of yellerday uujuttly calls weak, in the room of B iron Thugut, appeals to in dicate that the political system ofihe latter is not abandoned, while the nomination of Count Cobentaf!,.lu a Negociat'orat Luneville has a contrary afpeft. It is not impoflible to reconcile tlitr—appsfeKt oppositions. Wt may suppose that the former has been done WJthjiti intention of preducing fatisfaftion art] Vienna, and the latter with a view to tiie lame objeft at Paris. It is poflible that the party which has placed Count Lehrbach in Admiftratien, may 110: have been dis pleased that a person foreign to them (houltl have been entrufled with the negociation for peace—Count Cobenzel will naturalty be a mere but what is previouflv decided at Vienia or vhat must be ratified there. His commilTion may not operate so much in favour of peace •as fonae persons imagine. The fending of a ' ""Pruffian Minister, M. Dohnr, defervrj to • be remarked, and will have a particular in fluence on the iflue of the Congress. It will be time to turn our attention to it when .the faft (hall be better authenticated. The Cnief Gonful appears desirous ot rivaling another Foreign Gorernmenti in its mutability in the choice of Miniftersand Generals. This imitation of the policy of ought not to be pafled over •without observation : it Ihews very little corfiftency in the ideas of Buonaparte, or • what is more probable, very little confidence in men who having been formerlv his equals, •re now reduced to be merely Kris tools. From the Vienna Court Gazette, Sept. 17,. Hi« Majesty the Emperor arrived here in * perfect Irealt'.i, 011 his return from thfe army •of Germany. A suspension of arms for days has been concluded between the French and Auflrian armies, and negotiations for peace with trance are about to be opened. His Majesty has seen with the greatest - pleasure and the mod lively grattitude the *eal which his fabjefts display for the de fence of their country and their eagerness to contribute to it in the most adtive and efficacious manner. As the ifTue of the ncgociations is uncer tain' and as none but a j nft and suitable peace can be accepted, the faithful fubjefts of his Majelty are again invited and exhor ted to redouble their zeal and their ardour in every thing which is lieceffary ' for the defence of their native country, and partic ularly for t>e bringing about a suitable peace so that this end may be obtained and the •whole monarchy may enjoy tranquility and "repose, and all the bleilings which result from them. Paris, oa. 5. , SIR SIDNEY SMITH. In the begtning of last month a Jlag of trucorrWed from Mahon, at Barcelona. It brought about'los prisoners, Spanilh Lirgai an and French rescued by the English from Turkifli llavery. The cruelties they had experienced would freeie the foul. An?ong them was young Thevnsrd, son of Theven ard of Toulon. He 4iad 101 l a brother at ■the battle ef Abouker ; and he "himfclf had languiflied in chain* among the Turks till Sic Sidney Smith was apprised of the circum flance. By means of letters and applications of every kind Sir Sidney p ocured his re lease. But this generous enemy did not flop there -He furnilhed Thevenard with money, clothes, Bcc. and recemmendations to his brother at Cnnllantinople, and for all the EngUlh naval officers. Sir Sidney carri ed his generality so far as to equip an avi so to go and find him at Rhodes. 'flie following fs a copy of one of the letters—Thevenard has, out of gratitude, prcferved them all. They teftify th"e plea sure which Sir Sidney enjoyed in restoring a son to his aged father, and in acknowledging the efforts, tho' frnitlefs, made by the bro ther of Thevenard to allevinte his captivity at Havre, previous, to his removal to the Temple, Coppy of a letter from Commodore Sir Sidney Smith, to Gapt. Gabriel Theven ard, on board the Tyger, June 15 1800 . M. Thevenard is requeued to come and dine with Sir Sidney Smith onboard the Tyger this day at three. Sir Sidney Smith takes tlve liberty to fend some clothes, which lie fiippufcs a person escaped from prison may require. Thefe,'*'however, are not of the! best ; but excepting English uniforms, they j are the only ones he has on board the Ty- ' ger, and they are the fame which Sir Sidney wo.re from the Temple till his reaching the tea—They will have done good ltrvice if I thejf trtlwtV tViefame purpoG; afccondtime in, again re do ring « l'on to his agri father dying of grief. Letters from Nantz, dated O&ober 3, fays" Ycfterdty evening, at feveti o'clock, Gen. Clarke, with Ins ftiite, arrived here. He alighted at the Temple of Prase, where it is fuppofedj he will hold his relidence during the Cong"-ef»« This morning the General of the 4th military division, with the whole of the Staff, vilited him, to con fer relative to the preliminary operations of the Congrefs-.-Every preparation is making for the completion and decoration of the places dc (lined for the re Tide nee of the Ple> nipotenti.iiies ; the road* are covered with articles of consumption, which are forward ing to Luneville." General Clarke, the bearer of the orders of Government, and who is to command extraoidinary at Luneville, and in the de partment of the Meurthe, is arrived there. After having conferred with the Sub Prc fe£t, and the Mayor, he vilited in person *ll the houses of the bed appearance ; he spared no pains to procure for the Members of the Congress lodpings and accommoda tion suitable to their dignity. Accounts from Marseilles state, thai the garrison of Malta arrived there on jjie 30th of September, to the numcer of 6000 men. They are there undergoing quarantine.— Gen. Vaubois has informed us, that the unfortunate Dulomieu is freed from his fet ters, and that he is in a chamber where he can walk, read and write. General Graham inter&lled himfelf much in his favour, and -tfc that Gchtrnli we are indebted for the pre fcrvation, at Malta, of the CahiiifX of Nat«- ral History belonging to that itluftrioui per son. It is now packing up in order to be sent off for Paris. We are informed from Cadiz, that an EnglifW fleet, conlifling of about 180 trans ports, cfcortfd by 16 (hips of the line, ap peared before that city, and made the EecefT.i ry preparation for eff»<f\ing a disembarkation. We can hardly allow ourselves, however, to believe, that the English will attempt a coup-de-main again ft a place, the Situation of which is painted in the following words in a letter from Barcelona : " As the malady becomes more alarming at Cadiz, it ha 3 been thought proper to fumigate all the letters which arrive from thence. We are informed by the Ihft cou rier, that during the four last days 732 per sons died, and of 110,000 inhabitants, who were in that beautiful but unfortunate city, 85,000, have quitted it. The immense po pulation of the suburbs confifl only of un happy wretches, whose dirtiness and poverty add still to the horror of the disease, and mud increase its »ravages.—There was at Cadiz only one Sp.inifh regiment which was much reduced by licknefs ; the sole defence therefore of this city againlt the English, is the contagion, which doubtless, they will not venture to brave. PARIS, OA. 11. Gen. Berthier has again been appointed Minister at War ; Carnnt it is said, will be the colleague of Joleph Buonaparte, in car rying on the Begociations at Luneville. The news from the armies are now en tirely unintfretVing. Tbey are returning to their cantonments.—Moreau is. going to Paris. There is now less probability thin ever that their services will be required. It is certain that M. Lifakewitz, late se cretary as Legation, and now Charge d'Af faires from Kulfia, has received orders from his court to quit England, and to pro ceed to Copenhagen, where he is appointed ambaflador. * The Emperor his mailer, has fignilied to him his fatisfaftion with his condu£l in the situation he held here, parti cularly line- the retirement of Count Wo— ronzow. His Imperial Majesty likewise presented him, we are informed, with 4000/ to enable him to appear at the Court of Denmark with suitable fplendaur and dig nity. On his departure, the Emperor of Russia will have no official agent in this country, as we have none at Peterfbr.rgh. All"this routing is to be considered as previ ous to the farreuder of Malta. What will : be the comequence when that event is known to his Imperial Majesty. FRANCKFQRT, Oft. 5. The Landgrave of Meffe Caffel Was adop ted a sudden and untxpc&cd measures, by putting all his troops on the war eftabliffi ment. A certain number of men have been letached from the garrison of Hanau, in oitjer to procure tents and other requifities at Caffel. The Landgrave betides has taken into pay 8000 orf the militia, who will lerve on the fame footing as the troep3 of the line. The motive of this measure cannot be conc:ived at a period when the armiltice has been prolonged, and wken the moll ap parent intimacy of the three belligerent powers affords the best founded hopes of the approach of peace. There is reason to lup pofe that this military disposition is merely eventual in order that the Landrage may be prepared, in cafe the negociations should ! not be attended with a favourable ifiue. The regency ot'Carliuhe has been offici ally informed by the French commandant at Gomerfheim, that the navigation of the lthine is fully and freely re-established The head quarters of the Atiftrian army are now at Welz Ljnts , the troops of the Empire occupy the Corron, the Bavarians are at MahldA-fF, and the corps of VVur timberg at Wafferbourg. The (peedy ar rival of the French head quarters has been notified to the inhabitants of Stutgard. Moreau, DeiToles, EWe, the French com mandarit of artillery, Mathieu, Faviers, Percy and others, will remain there during the armillice. Moreau was, on the 111, at Augsburg, *«th his corps of Guides. Ge neral Ney is to occupy the fortrefs of In golftadr, which is now fiuroundcd by his troops. General Angereau has granted a neutrality to the Prieccs and Counts ol Nassau. The King of Prtiffia has interceded in their favor. The state of their territory is diftrefsful ; tliey have withdrawn their contingents from the ar»ny of the Empire, and they are now in treaty for a fcparate peifce. St RASBURGH, Oflober 4.

Prom the Paris Papers. LlSßON,"September 13. The following is a new incident which wilt hive a place iri the hiltrry of the disputes that divide the Courts of Spain and Portugal ; 1 great covvoy has just arrived from Braftl. At the time it fai ed from Europe, the political dispositions of the two naiions towards each other were entirely unknown in Europe, or ra ther it was believed that there was the best un derfhnding between them ; five Spanish veflels ihat were at La Plata, the commanders of which thought they could do no better than tikt trie advantage of the convoy, and joining the Portuguese veflels, with them arrived at Lisbon. It Is said that they are loaded with about twelve millions of piaftetK But while they were on their paflage, the state of affairs between the two powers confiderahly changed, and it is probable that this event will have a considerable influence on the reciprocal of the two nations ; one of which iiiuft be un willing to facrifice its millions, and the other to restore them without jiacifie afluranees for the future.

Captain Van Antweipt has put in pur hands a Halifax paper of the 27th ultimo, whiclj contains the foreign news publithed in this day's gazette—it is to the 19th, and was received there by the (hip Echo, xaptain Kendal, in 37 days from Portsmouth. The mod interetling events, fays the Editor, are, a Confirmation of Ulm, Philipfburgh, and Ingolftadi, being delivered up to the FreticU —and the confe<juent exteivlion of the ar mistice for 40 days—the preparations for a congress, which was immediately to aflemble at Luneville, to adjulla plan of general pa cification. The change of miniflry at Vi» enna, by the appointment of Count Lelir back, to succeed Baron Thugut, and the appointment on the part of the Emperor of Count Cdbenzel to be the Austrian negocia tor at the Congress at Luneville. The pa pers also contain, the rescript of the Empe ror, calling on his Hungarian fubje&s to be prepjred to rife en niafle, (hould not peace re full, from the negociation. The French garrison of Malta, confiding of 6000 men, had arrived at Marseilles. All the Biitilh forces which could be spared after leaving the necelTarv garrison in Malta, had failed under Sir A* Abercromby for Egypt, The Ruffian troops had once more disappeared, and were on their return to Russia. Fo - midable preparations were making in Spain, for the p.ttack of Portugal. A large French army was again aflembling on the coast, to excite, if pcffible, an alarm in England ; but the vigilance of our fleets and army was such as to remove all apprehension from their parading gasconade. Jn the naval line, no thing material had taken place, except the capture of two Spanish frigates, and two corvettes—the high price of provjfion, had made an early meeting of Parliament tiecef fary, and his roajeHy's proclamation had been iffusd for their aflembling on the nth of Novewber. , From all these events our readers will be furnifht'd with new fubjedls for cor.jefture, but whether peace or a continuance of the war will be the result, seem at present to de fy all human penetration., On Tuefdsy morning lad, a French gen tleman, who had been in town but a few days, cut his throat in a molt Shocking man ner, at his lodgings, in Front street.

He had for foine time after his distress in his own coun try, resided in Dublin as a clerk, where he was much esteemed.
