The Monileur and oilier Farit Journals,
ol Sunday last, contain no intelligence ol
importance, txcept dial it appear? that the
French b ve been disappointed as to the
! result ofanother act ot ^military treachery,
j According to a letter from Perpignan,
I Manso, in deserting to the enemy ha?
| been able to carry with him only 43 men
! and his own disgrace. On 'he 6th, at
1 Vendrell, he signed hi? submission, and it
was .forwarded to AloNCfcV. On the 7th,
be still flattered himself Mat he would be
able to eedure the whole ot his dtvi.-ion,
hut a violent commotion having taken
place in his camp, and AIii.a.vs being on
his march to Vendrell with » strongde*
tachmeui, the traitor, to avoid being ar
rested,fled in all haste with hi- lew wretch
ed adherents. It must he owned, howev
er, that tins discovery of freacVry among
the troops under Alina io Catalonia, tiith
, erto so zealous iu their ie?i-tance to the
French, is sufficiently discouraging to the
constitutional cause.
Intelligence by express was received
yesterday trom Madrid ot the 18th instant,
i by an eminent mercantile house iu Me
! citv, that the Duke d’Angouleuie arrived
• at Port St, Mary’.? on the 16lli,* and that
immediately on Ins arrival a flag ol truce
[ was sent into Cadiz, with propositions lor
( a negotiation with the Cortes. The intel
ligence proceeds to stale, that the assem
bly declined receiving any such proposi
tions. unless lli« French Generalissimo was
authorised to uoiie with them a proffer of
’ the mediation ol England between the ne
gotiating parties. No hint is given wheth
er the treaty wa* proposed with the Cories
as the representative of the Spanish ua
tiou,or as a prelude to that “personal c»*
• pitulation” lately defined by the Journal
des De-hals. The intelligence mus! there*
lore, be received with some degree of dis
trust, but may be allowed, perhaps, to es
! tahlisb one important point at least—tint
j the firstoflers of negotiation have proceed
j ed tromthe French General—a confession,
f so far, of the difficulties fcfhis situation
London, August 23.—We have receiv
ed Dutch papers to the 2lst inst. We ex
tract from them the following article upon
the atf.iirs of Germany •'
Munich. Aug. 9. —Our readers have not
forgotten that at the conclusion of the
Congress at Vienna, two of the greater
German Powers united to take steps for
the assembling of .« German Congress at
Vienna, to winch it was intended to invite ,
all llip Powers of the German Confedera
tion, and at which the Act of th»» Confed
eration of 1814 was to he revised, in urdu
to remove from it all traces of the con -
ce-.-ions which the danger? ol the moment j
had extorted from the ministers ot tintj
day. The endeavors of the cabinets- of!
Merlin and V unm* were fruitless, and
Prince Mcllern- h was obliged to content
himsell with having destroyed the spirit
ol opposition which had been formed in
the bosom ol .the German Diet. Bnt the
views ol Austria were only adjourned, and
that Power ha- now sent a circular to se
veral German Governments, to invite
them to a Congress which is to be held at
Vienna in the month of October next.—
The object of this Congress, says the cir
cular, i- to introduce into the system of
government in Germany, more similarity
and unnoriiiity. thereby to strengthen the
ties winch must unite all the member? ot
the Coulederauon, <Vc* This circular has
caused if to be generally believed and re
ported that the affairs ot Germany are to
be regulated at Vienna, under the influ
ence ol the Holy Alliance. Our govern
ment has refused to send a representative
to this Congress, and Wurtemburg has im
itated the firm c.uuduct of Bavaria.”
DIED,
On board ship Boston, in Hampton
Roads, on the 27th ult. Master Wiujam
j Pelton, aged 19 years, son of Mr. Enoch
Pelton, of this town. It is due to the me
mory ol the deceased to briefly notice his
death —It is too often the case, that boys
who follow the se3 for a profession, get
into had and dissipated habits, and turn
out worthless members of society—hut this
was not the case with young Pelton. He
was remarkably steady and moral in hi?
habits, pleasing in his manners, and bid
fair to become a perfect master of bis pro
fession. It has pleased the Supreme Ruler
of the universe to summon him to 4 another
and a better world.* ’Tis a bitter pang to
his parents, brothers, and sisters—but they
have this consolation left them, that *to die
is gain.* K.
