Barbagos, Feb. 2.—'Vhe standard of Independence has
once more heen unfurled on the Spanish Main, an expe.
dition for Chat purpose having been pris ately undertaken
by some creole Spaniards who had sought refuge at ‘Trini.
dad after the plans of Miranda had failed; and, having
sailed from one of the stsader Islands iu the Bocas with.
out the knowledge of the Government of Trinidad, they
made a descent at a weekly defended place called Guiria,
with success, haviog citected their landing aud gained pos.
session with the loss of only danéen. It has not been as.
cerfained who is at the head of this enterprise; but it is
strongly suspected that one of the former ringleaders, at
present residing in ‘Trinidad, is concerned. The number
of men that composed this armament was viry limitedy
Consisting, it is said, of net more than 200 or 250. Since
they have gained their point, the communication by laun.
ches, which had for some time been interrupted, had res
commenced with ‘Prinidad, at which Island many sup plics
had been received from Guiria. Martial Law has been
proclaimed at Trinidad, and an investigation is taking
place, in order tu discover those who have had any con.
cermin the expedition: several persons have been appre.
heuded upon suspicion.

Cortes, wishing to improve the glorious successes of thie
allicd army, with a view to put an end to the calamities of
war, which bear heavy upon the nation, considering that
nothing can contribute more eflectually to the attaimment
of so interesting an object, than the placing of all the t oops
in the Peninsula under the direction of one Commander,
in order that there may be unity in the plans and opera.
tions of the alliedforces ; and setting the highest value ou
the distinguished talents aud eminent services of the Duke
of Civdad Rodrigo, Captain-General of the National
Armies, have decreed in a seeret fitting that during the co.
operation of the Allied forees he shall be invested with the
command in chief of them all ; exercising it conformably
to the general ordinances, with this differetuce only, that
whatever is enacted in Art 6, Title 1, Treatise 7, of the
same shall be extended toall the Provinces of the Peninsue
la ;—that illustrious Commander corresponding with the
Spanish Government through the office of the Secretary of
War. :
The Regency of the Kingdom has directed me to request
your Iixcelleucy wil lave the goodness to transmit this
important communication to the Duke of Ciudad Rodrigo,
with as little delay as possible ; he being persuaded that this
meritorious Commander will see, in the above mentioned
determination of the Cortes, a most solemn and authentic
testimony of the national gratitude for the eminent servis
ces which he has rendered Spain, as also of the great con.
fidence to which he has entitled himself by the uncommon
talents and military virtues for which he is conspicuous :
and by the unlimited zeal with which he devotes them to
the furtherance of the common cause.” ,
His Hihness is anxious to hear of the Duke of Ciudad
Rodrigo having accepted the above-mentioned situation ;
that being officially informed of it, he may direct the pub-
lication of the resolution of the Cortes, by which his Lord
ship is invested with the saine.
I beg your Excellency will admit of the sincere assur-
ances of my high consideration and respect.—May God,

View original Most Excellent Sir,—I have had the honour to reccive
your letter of the 25th of September, inclosing another to
the same datg from Don Ignacio dela Pezuela, by which I
learn, that the General and [.xtraordinary Cortes have been
pleased to direct, that the command of all the Spanish forces
be conferred on ine: for which signal proof of confidence,
on the part of the Congress and Government, [ request your

I am theless concerned at this delay, as having long been
in the habit of confidentially communicating with the Gene-
rals atthe head of the Spanish armies on the geueral objcets
I had in view in the operations of the Anglo-Portuguese
under my commanth; suggesting, al the same time, such
measures as they might adopt to eficctually co-operate
with me, 1 have constantly found them attentive to those
suggestions, and received from them whatever assistance
they could give; and accordingly, Lam convinced they
will continue to do so; although Ldo not immediately as.

inconvenience can resul! from my applying to [lis Royal

honourable trust conferred upon me by the Cortes.

being persuaded, that, in the command of the other two
Members of the Alliance, with which T had before been
invested, [ have dote whatever lay in my power to pro-

The celebrated French Panter David and. M. Denon,
avantageously known by his splendid work on Egypt,
have been created Barons of the Freuch Empire,
Mr. Lambert, the American, who, in 1311, took pos-
session of the Island of ‘Tristan d@’ Acuna, in the. Southern
Ocean, has recently applied to the Governor of the Cape
of Good Hope, for the patronage and assistance of the
British Government and Waste India Company. bis Agent
at the Cape has declared, that he would endeavour to af.
ford refreshments to whatever vessels might pass in that
track of the seas; anu that who never the sanction of the
British Government sicald be known, the necessary as.
sistance being given hi.., he wouid most solemnly deciare
himself allicd to that Government; and by permission,
display the Engish flag o% the Island, roeerving, how.
ever, always to himocif the Govcruorship, provided au
equivalent could not be agreed wpou.—Lord Caledon had
granted to his Agent a small vessel, to carry from the
Cape five industrious famiites, who had requested leave to
emigrate thither; also a fow blach cattle, sheep, goats,
&c. with such other sinall necessaries as might couduce to
the growth and production of the Isiand,
Antwerp, Oct. 27.—The courage and generosity of a
young woman, who subsututed herself for her brother,
a conscript in 1806, and who has Just returned from the
army, covered with honourable wounds, is wow the sub.!
ject of much conversation here. The story is true and
the particulars deserve tobe known,
Virginia Chesquiere, born at Delemont, department of
the North, district of Lille, finding that her brother, who
was ordered to march, was not ta a condition to support
(he fatigues of war, aud that he was inclined to continue
his studies, obtained from her parents permission to depart
for hin, They were twins, and very much resembled eaci
other, She presented herself at the depot im the clothes
of lier brother, and was sent to the 27th regiment of th
line, in witich she has served six years. She was raised to
the rank of serjeant ai the battle of Wagram, for having
saved the life of her captain, who fell into the Danabe,
and was in danger of peishing. At the battle of the od
of May, near Lasbon, where the Duke of Abrantes com.
manded, her Colonel being surrounded by the enemy, she
demanded six men whom she could depend upon, with
whom she proceeded to ats succour ; notwithstanding a gun.
shot wound which she received in her left arm, she succeed.
ed in saving him, besides making two insurgent officers pri-
souers, She alsy received ou tins oceasion a wound from
a bayonet in the left side, was carried to the hospital of
Almeida, and thenceto that of Burgos, where she was cur-
ed of her wound without her sca beg discovered ; but an
ness has since betrayed if, and she has just passed by
the cily of Courtray, to go to her depot, to receive the
recompense due tu her vaiour, and to be decorated by the
hand of the Colonel whom she saved with the henourable
insivwia duc to the brave,
