Copy pf aletter from Capt. John Surman Carden,
laie\Commander of his Majesty’s ship Macedonian,
to John Wilson Croker, Esg., dated on board the
American ship United States, at sea, Oct. 28.
“Sir,—It is with the deepest regret I have to acquaint.
you, for the information of my Lords Commissioners of
the Admiralty, that his Majesty’s late ship Macedonian,
was captured on the 25th inst. by Ure United States’ shi;
United States, Commodore Decatur, Commander ; the de-
tails is as follows :—
‘CA short tine after day-light, steering N. W. by W.
with the wind from the southward, in lat. 29 deg. N. and
Jong. 29, 30min. W. in tife execution of their Lordships?
orders, a sail was sech on the lee-beam, which I imme.
diately stood fer, and made her out to be a large frigate,
under American colours:‘at nine o'clock 1 closed with
her, and she commenced the action, which we returned ;
but from the cuemy keeping two points off the wind, 1
was not enabled io get as close to her as f could have
wished. After an hours action, the enemy backed and
came to the wind, and I was then enabled to bring *her to
close battle: in this situation LI soun found the enemy's
force too superior to expect success, unless some very for.
tunate chance occurred in our favour; and with this hope

Most important News.— Desertion of the Prussian Army
JSrom the French.— Bonaparte demands a fresh Levy
of 350,000 Men.
Bonaparte has at length broke the silence he had pre-
served since his 29th Bulletin with respect to aflairs in the
North, and he has burst upon us with impostant, aud to
us, glorious intelligence indeed,
The General in Chief of the Prussian army, d’ York,
has withdrawn his whole force from the French army, and
has concluded a convention with the Russians, by which
the Prussian troops are to remain neutral in Mastern Prus.
sia—And the orders he sent to the Prussian General Mas-
senbach, who was with Macdonald at Tilsit, with two bat.
teries, six battaiions and six squadrons of Prussian troops,
to leave the French and join him, have been obeyed. ——
<¢Massenbasch set off on the 3st ult.”? says Macdonald,
“‘without any orders, to repass the Niemen. He thus
abandons us before the enemy.’”’—Macdonald had evident.
ly taken some steps to detain the Prussian General and
disarm his troops. The General was aware of his inten.
tions, and began his march without loss of time. Macdo.
nald could not prevent or pursuchim. And thus, nearly
the whole of the 10th corps, which the last French papers
assured us was in the finest state, the only corps that had
not greatly suffered in the last campaign, has been detached
from the French service, and may in fact be considered as
part of the force destined to act against France.
General d’Y ork, in his letter to Macdonald, says, that
‘Cafter many painful marches it was not possible fur me to

cellency, and left me to choose between the alternative of
losing the greater part of my troops and all the materiel
which alone insured my subsistence, or saving the whole.”
—But other and nuvier motives wedare say impelled him.
Ife wished to set an example to the other Powers which
Bonaparte keeps ia subjection—to invite (hem to with.
draw from their slavery, and to break their felters upon
the head of their oppressor. He wished to teach a lesson
to Germany—to suund the alarm—to rekindle their ancient
leve of independence, and to arm them against a tyrauny
