The state of suspense and apprehen
sion which has existed in this country
since the attack on the Chesapeake, in
June last, is not yet changed for the
better. It appears from the intelligence
in the preceding columns, that the rela
tions ot the United biates with hctii
1'ranee and England, are still in an un
certain and perilous situation.
A formidable opposition, in both
houses of die 'English Parliament, re
prc^ate the British orders of Council
ci November last, which require neu
ral \ es is sailing to the ports of France
or i.er allies, to land tin ir cargoes and
pay duties in England. The opposition
also censure, in severe terms, the Co
penhagen expedition. They declare it
a loul reproach, and in its consequv nccs,
a lasting injury to the nation.
A number of English merchant ves
sels, of great value, have been captured
m the Indian ocean by a French priva
teer from the Mauritius. In the course
of eight days, she took ten valuable
prizes.
1 he Gazette of the United States, of
the 24th inst. mentions the arrival of
the ship Bingham, from Calcutta, in the
East-Indies, which place she left earlv
in 1) comber,—and states, that u when
the Bingham sailed, a report was in cir
culation at Calcutta, that war was likely t
to take place between Scindia, Holcar,
ant; the Company. A severe skirmish
had taken place between on' of the na
tive powers and the Britt >h at Ration,
m the Attrass country,in v.*hif h the Bri
tish lost GO commissioned officers.”
The ports of Holland are shut against
all merchant vessels, at the desire of the
Emperor of France. Vessels driven in
by the dangers of the sea, or in distress,
are not to have any intercourse with the
interior, and are to depart as soon as
possible*—1 he Dutch government calls
upon the merchants to turn their atten
tion to privateering.
