NEW AMSTERDAM, May 8h 1813.

No arrival this week in our Port—but having had
this week a sight of several of the last English Pa-
“pers, we have collect the most interesting extracts
from them.
We are in the meantime happy to say, that an-
other Plantation, in this colony, is released from its
Sequestration, as will be seen in the head of the
Marshal's Office—This will be now the fourth, which
in a short time, is released.

Two Genilemen arrived from Holland, ona
prticular mission to the Russian Minister at
the British Court; and another Gentleman ar-
rived yesterday for the purpose of inviting the
Prince of Orange to Holland, where the people
were desirous of joining his Standard ; and it
is further said, that d!-patches were immedi-
ately forwarded to His Serene Highness, in

It is said to be the determination of the Duke of York
that every one of the Generals wow serving on the Stall,
in Great Britain and Ireland, who have not served iu the
Peninsula, shall be sent out for the approaching cam.
paign; aed also the Adjudant-Generals, Quarter-Mas-
ter-Generals, PaysMa:ter-Generals, Medical aud Com. Departments,

A Gentleman who left Paris in the beginning of March,
states, that the Conscription has been enforced throughout
France with the utmost rigour, and has in most places
been successful, The drawing, assembling, and diilling
of the troops, were scarcely permitted to occupy three
wee ks, befure they were marched off towards the Rhine
and the Elbe, where several corps of observation were
assemb'ed under General Lauriston and the Duke'of Ra-
usa, to Cover, or rather overawe, the German States.
In addition to this resource, in the begianing of last mouth
a proclamation was issued, inviting all males, between
(he ages of eighteen and thirty-two, who had escaped
being drawn for the Conscription, to jain the Northern
Army, oflering to provide for their families, or whatever
‘elatives might be dependent upou them for support ; and
holding out, in consequence of the deficiency of oflicers,
the hope of early promotion, as an inducement tuo those
who shoui? volunteer their services. ‘he 11ch inst. was
fixed as the period for marching those who had enlisted
to join the army. In regard to the cavalry, it is stated
that there was every probability that 40,009, the number
originally required, would be raised, their being Scarcely
an individual, -possessed of competency, who had not
yielded to the influence of those around him, and provided
a recruit or horse, or asum of money. In France, there-
fore, the opinion was, that the Emperor’s exertions to,
assemble a vast military force would be successful, and
that in May or June he would assume the command,
An order was sent to the Custom House, yestenlays
allowing all vessels to clear out for the Prussians ports,
and dirceting that no hindrance shall be given to vessels’
coming from thence.

Corunna, Feb, 19.—The French to the number of 800
infantry and 25 horse, entered on the 14th into Astorga,
la Banena, and alle towns. Itis also reported that it is
their'intention to come to VillaFranca. It is believed to
be false, and that their object is to extort mouey.
Feb. 20.—It is currently reported that a nnmber of
French have assembled in Salamanca and its vicinity, and
to this it is attributed that the English and Portuguese,
who were in Braganza, under orders to proceed into Cas.

same cause the head-quarters of the Marquis of Welling-
ton have gone back to Freuada, which had set out for Cui-
dad Rodrigo.

King Joseph was preparing to march for France on the
96th of last mouth, announcing in a proclamation to the
people of Madrid, that the motive of his journey was not
for the aflairs in the North, but in order to assist ata
Congress at Bayonne. During his absence coult com-
Iu the vicinity of the Guadarama 200 French have died
out the 2000 who went to Madrid with Gen, Drouet. .
They write from Lugo, that the Marquis of Wellington
was already there with his army, and that he would im-
mediately open the campaign, which must produce events
of great importance tu the common cause. A new regu.
lation has been made in eur armies, agreed ov between the
Government and the Duke of Cuidad Rodrigo.
Abicant, Feb. 3.—The enemy have begun to concen-
trate their furces and withdraw their artillery, but still
making incursivds with small parties on the intermediate
points between the two lines, and ravaging a country
which they must abandon as svon as operations commence.
Jean, Feb. 10.—IAn Atmodeva are the hussars, and re-

in the same positions, making great erxactions of ail kinds
of provisions, which they sell to rane uivncy.
Murcia, Jan. 26.—IUvis generally supposed the French
will evacuate Valencia, but nothing is hnown with cer.
tainty. Ourcavalry which had proceeded to Lorea to
rest itself, is but in ill condition, as there are Wo pi avisi-
ous for either men or horses.

Cadiz, Feb. 16.—Our campaign is expected to open
early next month, and surely the prospect was never
brighter. Our army of reserve will shortly be respecta-
ble, and we must ultimately succeed. )
A change of Regency is said to be determined on; va-
rious are the opinions respecting the persons likely to form
the new one; the majority, however, think the election
will fall upon the Cardinal of Bourbon, Garne, Ilerrero,
and Theron: the two latter are deputies in the Cortes ;
the first for America, the other for Old Spain.
By the Spanish frigate Vinzanza, from Havannah, we
bave received 1,039,997 dollars, and some eflects.
Cadiz, Feb. 17.—The Americans, aad Crecks from the
View original Black Sea, arrive in great numbers: provisions prowise td
be down to nothing, and as the Ar rican Government
have not been able to prevent their stips sailing with pro-
visions for the Peninsula, brother Jonathan continues to
carry large supplics of wheat, flour, and rice. Flour is
now without a price, and every store in Cadiz piled up to
thetop. Itisnow three p. m. and six Americans in sight.
Carolina, Feb. 20.—According to a person from Ma.
drid, which place he left on the 28th ultimo, the equipages
were proceeding by the road of Alcala, and no ont doubted
the speedy retreat of the French.” He adds, that from
Burgos to Madrid there was not an enemy’s garrison.
An express has arrived with the information, that on the
5th the intrusive King slept at Villa Robledo, and _ that
with his escorts of 5000 infantry and about 2000 horse,
marched towards Valencia; that in the whole of La Mancha
there scarcely remained 5000 French, including the garrison
of ‘Toledo ; and they had, for the last time, exacted in all
the province a contribution of 13,000,000 of reals.
Jean, Jan. 29.—The troops remain in the same points.
We are assured that General Friere’s cavalry were, on
the 24th inst. in Cuadex, and that Wittingham’s division
was to march to Grenada, and from thence to....
Jan. 30.—The day before yesterday set out, from this
place, for Martos, all theartillery belonging to the army:
and that from Consuegra proceeds to Grenada, Every
day provisions and money become more scarce. ‘The army
has not yet received half pay.
Buga, Jan. 18.—We are assured that General Sarsfield
has passed the Ebro, and that Gen, Mina was in Bar.
Elbe, Jan. 26.—We expect General Murray from
England, to take the command of theallied troops, which
already amount to more than 80,000 men. The enemy's
army does not exceed 14,000.
The whole of the property taken at Djojocarta, is im-
mense. The greatest part of it is now on his way to Ben-
gal, and the prize-money is about to be shared amongst
the claimants.
The following is an extract of a letter on the subject:
Djweocarta, June 28, 1812.
‘< Since [ last wrote, we have hada brush with theSul-
tau of Djofocarta, and with very trivial loss on our part
have stormed his place, taken him prisoner, and raised
his son to the throne, I[lis treasure has become the pro-
perty of the captors, and a subaltern’s share will amount
to between 3 and 4000 dollars, Our Joss ® inconsidera-
ble, compared to the number of troops whom we had to
oppose. ‘The enemy stood well while they were sheltered
by their fortifications, but at the sight of our men on the
top of our walls, they fled in all directions. Colyuel Gil-
lespic, Who commanded, was wounded, but not severcly ;
and an officer of his Majesty’s 14th regiment has since
died of his wounds.”
New York, Jan. 7.—By all that we can learn from
Washington, says the United States Gazette, it appears
to us sulliciently evident that some juggle is about to take
place between the Administration and their underwoikers
in Congress, with a view to get this troublesome war off
their hands. Lt has served the purpose for which it was
made, by securing to Mr. Madison his re-election, and he
how wishes to have nothing more to do with it,
I'rom the National Intelligencer.
We observe that au idea is in circulation in some of the
Gazettes, that there is a prospect of au ¢arly accommoda-
tion with Great Britain. We wish it may be founded on
any recent indications, on the part of Great Britain, of a
disposition to meet the liberal advances of our Government.
Of such a disposition we have however no proof. Of the
perseverance of the United Statesin their pacific disposi.
tion, we have no doubt that every additional proof will
appear from time to time that circumstances may render
proper. We allude more particularly to its being intend.
ed, as we learn, to introduce into the Legislature a propo-
sition for excluding by law foreign seamen from the public
and private vessels of the United States. This will pro-
vide for giving effect to any stipulated arrangement between
the two governments, which may take place after the ad.
journment of Congress, without the delay and inconye..
nience incident to a special call for the purpose.
Extract of a letter, dated Norfolk, Dec, 26:—‘‘A.
View original vessel arrived yesterday with the crews of scveral vessels
captured by the squadron at our Cape, and put dn board
just at our Light, among them the ship Pekin (formerly
the British ship Ann Green), coming round in ballast with
a Sidmouth, to load at Alexandria, taken becanse that
she had becn made a prize from them siuce the war, (dn.
other account states that it was because they would not
abmit that her licence protected her only from Alexandria
outwards )—sent to Bermuda. It is said the Commander
of the Poictiers regretted the capture afterwards, and
thinks she will be released. They are close in with the
Capes and speak every thing. ‘Thereare some fears of an
attack here or more south, and the State Governments
are making some preparations.”
Lord Wellington’s Answer to a late Address of the
Merchants of Lisbon.
Lisbon, Jan. 18.
Gentlemen; I am much flattered by the honor
you have conferred on me by this visit, and gratified
by the terms in which you have addressed me.
In the conduct of the operations entrusted to my
directions, it has been my invariable wish and en-
deavour to spare the lives of the brave Officers and
Soldiers under my command, to whose galantry and
discipline their country and the world are so mnch
indebted ; and to diminish, as far as lay in my po-
wer, the miseries inseparable from a state of war;
and Jam happy that I have met with the approba-
tion of Gentlemen equally interested in the happi-
ness and prosperity of the people of the Peninsula,
aud capable of forming a judgment on the imporlant
occurrences of late years. WELLINGTON.
