By a Barbados Piper of the 19th June, which we
have been favored with, we are enabled to present our
Readers with extracis of London Papers to the 15th of
May. From them it will be seen the French are report-
ed lo have obtained advantage over the Allied armies in
Germany; at least the rumour of this intelligence has
occasioned a considerable jall in the price of Coffee,
which, when the lust accounts left England, was wiihou!
— re
May 15.]—We have at length received the official ac-
count, the French official account, of the great battle of
Lutzen. Lt was indeed a tremendous coutlict, and the
Slaughter on both sides was probably as great as at the
battle of Borodino.—The last accounts left the respective
armies on two lines parallel with cach other. Bouaparte
was at Naumburg on the 29th, and on the same day the
Emperor of Russia and King of Prussia wereat Altenburgh
—There were, wé believe, some sharp affairs ov the 29th
and 30th, but these are not alluded to, and were, of
course, of nu great importance. Ou @e Ist, Bonaparte,
with Berthicr, was at Weissenfels ; Beadharnois at Merse.
berg; Marmont at Naumberg; Bertrand at Stolilsen ;
Soult at Jena; and Maisson at [allee—The first opera.
tiou of Bonaparte, on the lst of May, was to get posses.
sion of the plain which extends from the heights of Weis.
senfels to the Elbe. The allies shewed nothing but caval.
ry, aud @eccupied the heights. ‘There was evidently an
obstinate battle on that day, and part of the French army
under Girard, which took the direction of the road to Pe.
gau, Was at ove tine beat back. ‘The French account
says, ** fhe Mimperor wishing to reinforce the batteries of
Girard’s division, sent 2 pieces of cannon of the Guards
vider Gen. Dron”? tlowever, the French entered-the
plain, and the respective armies made Chose movements
which browsht ou the battle of Lutzen on the 2d—a battle
fought on the very | lain where, in 1652, the Great Gus.
tavus fought and fell, like onc own Nelson, in the very
arms of victory. tlad the Swedish troops been there,
they might again havc iimoctalised the Swedish name, and
Lutzen Deen a second Gime celebrated in the Swedish au.
In the battle of the ist, after a S*dreadful and long can.
nonade, alier such p:odiies of valour peiormed, aud the
Russiau cavalry overthrown dy grape shot,’? the enemy
declare they only lost 90 men—but among them was Mar-
shal Bessieres (Duke of tstriqg), who had been the compa-
niva of Bonaparce in all his campaigns: he was killed by
a cannon ball.
lt appears from the French accounts that the allies were
thre assailants in the battle of the 2d, and that they had
determined, as svon as they heard that Bonaparte had dee
bouched from the Tnhuringe, tu attack himin the Plains of.
Lutzen. They accorting!y pasoed the little river Elster
at three places, Zaviuchau, Pegau, and Zeitz. Bonaparte
appears not tu hive expeciud Uns movement sgover than
the 5th, an l ts hive thought that, by # previous ettack
upon Leipsic, he should aiscoucert Ge allies, get to the
right bank of the Plu, and take them ev reeverse. But
the passage of tie Mister by the Allies on the 2d forced
him to changy lis dis, osteus. Beauharnots, with the
lett of the army, was onthe bister; Ney, with the centre,
in tae village of Kala; Marmont on the right; Bonaparte
behind Ney in the centre, The object of the allies was
twofold—to make an attack with their main force on the
centre of the eneny, and at the same Ume to turn thei
right by Weissenlels, ‘Phe battle began between nine and
ten inthe muroing, and continued till uight.—The enemy’s
account of it is nut avery clear one, but it is evident that
for the greater part of the day victory was in favour of
the allias, but thae it was at length decided against them
by amovement of Gen. Bertrand’s, towards night, in
their rear. Kaia, which formed the centre of the French
positions, an was dteuded by Bovaparte, Ney Girard,
and Souham, was the scene of the most sanguinary contlict.
The allies pierced it several times, and several times Bo-
naparte sent reinforcements to repair the jusses sustained,
and strengthen Noy. aia was taken and retaken; bat
after stating that **it remained in the enemy’s power,”
ties account says, ‘Sthat General Ricard ordered it to be
retaken, and it was retaken.”’—Finding himself pressed
with such desperate energy in this poiut, Bonaparte sent
orders to Beauharneis to make a strong attack upon the
Jeft, and Macdonald to endeavour to cut off the attention
of the allics from theie centre to their right and their re.
serve. It was in vain. ‘The allies kept their forces and
efforts steady to the centre, and Kaia was again taken—it
was another Aspern. The allies poured fresh troops, and
the French centre, commanded by Bonaparte in person,
and Ney, give way. Some battalions fled, and in great
disorder, throwing away their arms (se debanderent), but
at sight of Bonaparte they rallied !—Credate!— Bonaparte
Saw that not a moment was tou be lost; ail the reserve were
brought up to repair the disasters experienced in the cen.
tre—80 pieces of cannon were brought up at the same
time. The village of Kaia wasggain taken, but we infer
that the allies again succeeded im restoring the battle in
that point, for we find Bonaparte obliged afterwards to
order part of his right to the relief (he says to support
the success) of the centre. But the cavalry of the allies
made some desperate charges against the division from his
View original right. aud we collect that it was not able ¢o execute ity
orders, s3ut Bertran’, who had been seut before to de-
bouch on the rear of | @ allies; who early in the battl
was seen from afar, but who obviously experienced the
greatest dificultics in his march; Bertrand at length, some
Short time before night-fall, cutered the line. —The caval-
ry of the allies pressed him closely, for the account says,
that ‘*they capered about his squares ;” a capering less
acceptable, we dare say, than ever he experienced before.
lie was obliged to form in squares, and even when he en-
tered the line Bonaparte seems not to have been without
apprehensions, for he altered the whole of his movements
and brought up all his right, himself pivoting on Kaia.
Night came on and the allies retreated.
The French confess a loss of 10,000 men, including
Gen. Gourie killed, Generals Girard, Brenier, Clemeneau,
and Guillot, wounded—the former mortally. ‘The loss
of the allies is estimated at 25,000 men. The Trince of
Mecklenburgh Strelitz was killed, but no other General
of note on the part of the allies. Blucher and four othes
Prussian Generals are reported to have been wounded.
On the 3d the enemy continued his march, and on the
5th Bonaparte was at Colditz; Beauharnois at Horta;
Martnont behind Colditz ; Lauriston marching from War.
(zen to Dresden ; Ney at Leipsic; Soult at Altenburgh,
and Bertrand at Rochiitz. At Colditz there was a sharp
afiair on the 5th, and the allies having joined a reserve
belunging to Muloradovitch’s army at Gertdorff, near
Colditz, Beauharnois seems to have been roughly handled,
and to have been forced to bring up Marmont’s division.
The allies then retired towards Horta. Ney is marching
to raise the blockade of ‘Torgau and Wittenberg. The
allies are falling back upon the Elbe, and as the French
confess that they are so inferior themselves in cavalry, we
infer (hat they retire in good order.
The French accuunts says, ‘‘that we have made sever-
al thousand prisoners. ‘The number could not be more
considerable considering the inferiority of our cavalry,
and the desire which the Emperor had shewn of sparing
ite’? As they do not state any specific amount of prison-
ers, we dare say they made but few.—Bonaparte wishes
it to be believed that the allies were froin 150 to 200,000
strong, but that he had buthalf his army engaged. Now
he had Beauharnois, Marmont, Ney, Bertraut, Soult,
Bessieres, Macdonald, and Lauriston; though he says,
Lauriston was only at Leipzic. Victor was got in the
battle, and Davoust and Sebastiani were on the E}be—but
these were the only divisions alsent.—The allies consisted
of York’s, Blucher’s, Bulow’s, Wittgenst:ins, and part
of Miioradovitch’s corps. The other part was not in the
batile, and we doubt whether Tormazow’s was. But Pla.
tofPs and Tcichagoti’s, and Aleist’s were absent, and the
reinforcements frum the Visiula had not come up—Bona-
parte will would persuade us that there are dissentions be.
tween the Russians and Prussians—that they accuse each
other of not having fought well, at the very time he i
shewing that it is impossible any such accusation could
have been brought. As tu the Joy of the people at hls
successes—at the little eflect of the Russian and Prussian
Proclamations, we know them to be falsehoods—having
gained ground—having advanced from the Saale to the
Mulda—it were absurd to deny that the advsautage has
been on the side of the French.
May 13.—Marsha! Kutousolf has sunk uoder the weight
of fatigue and age. Gen. Wittgeastein succeeds in the
chief command.
A French Squadron, of 18 sail of the line from Tovlon,
having on board 5000 troups, has escaped. Sir Edward
Pellew, with {1 of the British line, has sailed in pursuit

of 43,000 men, of whom 6000 are cavalry. Ie has also
about 30,000 Portuguese ; so that he will open the cam.
paign with full 70,000 firelocks.
May 14.—The victory gained by Gen. Murray over
Suchet was of much more importance than the first ac.
counts stated it to be. Suchet lost in killed, wounded,
and prisoners, 5000 men, while our loss was comparative.
ly small. Suchet continued his retreat.
The Planters and West India Merchants of Glasgow
have transmitted a Petition to the House of Commons,
praying. —‘**That the Act of the 43d of his Majesty, chap.
153, may be repealed; and further, that all articles the
growth and produce of the American States, may be pro.
hibitcd from being imported into the United Kingdom dur-
ing the war.”
The ship-owners of Glasgow have transmitted a Petition
to the Ilouse of Commons, praying—‘*That the Act of
the 43d of his Majesty, chap. 153, be repealed in so far
as to prohibit the importation by neutral ships, of any
goods or merchandize, the produce of an enemy’s country, '
directly or indirectly, into the United Kingdom.”
The Chamber of Commerce and Manufactures have also’
View original sent off a Petition to Parliament, praying that the ciream.
stances of the cotton trade may be investigated before
cnacting any regulation calculated to affect it.
Chorleston, April22.—A Gentleman, who arrived here
yesterday in the Hazard, in one day frum St. Mary’s, in-
forms us, that the troops of the United States were te
evacuate-the Province of East Florida on the 27th inst.
Gen. Pinckney was at point Petre; his
had been on to St. Augustine and arranged with Governor
Kindelan the manner of evacuation. Most of the Patriots
had gone to St. Augustine to take the oath of allegiance
under the new Constitution. J. H. M’Intosh, the late
Director General of Florida, refused to take the oath of
allegiance, and had removed his negrocs to St. Mary’s.
Some of the Patriots were insulted by the lower orders at
St. Augustine, on going in to take the oath, in conse.
quence of which the Governor issued a proclamation for-
bidding sach proceedings in future. Our informant has
farnished us with a copy of the proclamation, which will
be published hereafter. 7
New-York, April 25.—We learn by the passengers in
North River Stcam-boat, that it was reported at Albany
on Saturday morning, that the fleet, under the command
of Commodore Chauncey, had sailed from Sackett’s Har.
bour, with Col. Pike’s regiment on board, supposed to be
destined for Kingstown.
Lewistown.—We have mentioned that the rockets’ and
bombs, at the late bombardment of Lewistown, did not
reach the plaée ; this, it now appears, was amistake. The
rockets went over the town, but did no injury, and one
of the bombs fell in it—fortunately, however, it did not
explode, ‘The damage done is estimated at 2000 dollars
—many of the houses being perfurated by balls. The
shot from the Belvidere weut some distance beyoud the
place. The cannonading was discontinued on the after.
noon of the 7th inst. and the Belvidere put to sea on the
8th inst. leaving the Poicticrs and small vessels in the Bay
—-where they still remained on Monday last. It is very
surprising that, notwithstanding the severe fire of the enc.
my, No lives were lost on our side, nor was a single per-
son wounded.
Hagerstown, April 27.—We understand that the Exc.
cutive of Maryland has required of the Commander of this
brigade to turnisi 350 drafted Militia, as part of the State’s
quota of the 10U,0U0, and that they are to be immediately
marched to Balumore for the protection of that city.
Ballimore April 29.—Yesterday, about 600 of the ene-
my, iu barges, took possession of Spesutic Islaud, near
the head of the Chesapeake. At the time of their land-
ing there were a number of persons (it is su pposed near.
ly LOO), on the Island, where they had gone to fish—two
of them escaped to the shore of Harford County and brought
the above intelligence.
Elkton, April 30.—The British made an attack yester-
day ; and after being repulsed twice at French-town, suce
ceeded in taking possession of a small fortification erected
there. They burnt all the ware-houses at the place, with
a considerable quantity of gouds, They then landed at
Whitehall, and inarched over opposite the battery erected
at Elk Landings ; and after receiving two or threc shot,
recived aud embarked immediately.
Thirteca harges came up full of men. We areall ander
arms here, and expect another attack hourly.
The following extract of a letter from an Officer on
hoard his Majesty's brig Frolic, dated Bermuda, Feb. 26,
explains the cause of the great loss of men on board our
ships lately engaged with the American frigates :—**In ad.
dition to the usual charge of a cannon or carronade, the
Americins put into their guns a bag, containing a large
quantity of icon balls, about the size of our musket-balls,
which bag they use instead of wadding for their cannon ;
and when tired, the bag bursts, and scatters like a shower
of hail among our men, if at all near. Besides this, they
‘ire from their muskets 16 large shot, which they calt
buck.shot, weighing one ounce and a half, besides a run-
ving ball. This, when at close quarters, cuts up our men
terribly and, unless we resort to the same destructive
mode of warfare, our brave (ars will pot havea fair chance
with such an active enemy. ‘The loss on boasd the Frolic
was greater in proportion, than either that on board the
Java or Amelia, every officer being kiiled or wounded,
and only 14 men-left on the deck w hen the enemy board.
Weare happy to announce the appointment of Briga.
dier-General Murray (Acting Governor Demerary) to be
Adjutant-General of the Forces, servingin the Windward
and Leeward Islands, under the Command of Lieut.-Gen.
