Saint Sebastian Itanum Sancti Sebasti- by

of the sea which form a peninsula of it and
at the mouth of the little river Uremea or
Gurninera which was the Menascum ol
thp ancients: there is an eminence which
serves it as a dike on the sea side. This
town staked with bastions and half moons
appears defended by a castle or citadel ol ,
little importance, placed upon an almost f
circular and tolerably high mountain.which

has a small harbour inclosed by two moles,
that leave a very confined space fur the .

protected" from^ winds, on arriving at the

very airy; it contains twenty streets, sev- ic

and all paved with large smooth stones.
There are from six hundred and fifty to 7,.
seven hundred houses in it, and many (if

SPAIN.
FALL OF CADIZ.
We »re left entirely wilhout details oftheop
eralions of the French, from the 13th of Sepiein.
ber, up to the surrender, which took place on
the 27th We find, however, an official article
in a Gibralter paper, (regular files of which wc
h ive received to the 25th Sept.) announcing ,he
capture of the Fortress of St. l'etri, ami it is
said in the Gibraltar papers anil letters, that the
French had also taken the whole of the hie of
Leon, which gave them possession of the narrow
peninsula connecting the town of Cadiz with the
Isla. Whether the Castle of Puntales (directly
opposite the T rocade ro) was also forcibly car
l ied by the French, previously to the surrender,
we are not informed. Cadiz, however, we should
infer from the accounts, lias been surrendered
without firing a gun, although, as at the 1 rocn
dero, there may have been hard fighting in tak.
ing the outworks. But we are told,
son for this, that the French, by obtaining the
Isle of Leon, were enabled to cut otf their sup.
plies. It follows then, that all the reports we line
had, relative to the abundance of provisions in
Cadiz, like a majority of the other reports, were
unfounded.
This war, which is no doubt concluded for (lie
prcsi-ni, has indeed been a singular one, and ma.
ny people have been deceived by building their
speculations upon the constancy, courage, patri
otism, and prodigies of valour displayed by the
Spaniards during the invasion of Bonaparte. Hut
