NEW AMSTERDAM, July 30th 1813.
C—O —
Late in the Evening of Thursday last, our First
June Packet arrived here, bringing London News-
papers tothe 14th. The intelligence of the allied
Russian and Prussian armies, are of a very unpleas-
ant nature. After the battles of the 20th, 2Ist, and
22d of May, the I’rench entered Siiecicn, and reports
says that the allied armies must recross the Vistula,
as not able of standing against their opponents. It
was alsoin circulation that a Congress would be short-
ly held for a general Peace, between all the Powers
of Europe. .
Denmark has declared hostilities against Great
Britain; and it was expected a similar declaration
would be issued between that Power and Sweden.
The Letter bag from hence will be closed for De-
merary ‘hursday.

June 2.—Advices from Copenhagen mention, that the
return of Count Bernstortl so suddenly withvut accom-
plishing the object of bis mission, had excitud much dis
gust, and that orders had, in couscquence, been given to
renew hostilities against Great britain. Coinciding with
this account, we have the following from a currespon-
dent: —
**Heligoland, May 24.—I[ regret being under the ne-
cessity tu inform you, chat the Danish Government have
signilied to the Comimander of his Majesty’s vessels in die

20th at Bautzen, and Wie otuer via the 2lst, at Wuttcnen ;
the Aijlics having reGired an the aatesyval to a second posi.
That the French ultimately gained the victory, there
is no doubt, because they remaincd in possessiun of the
field of battle, from which the Aliies reireated. Bouaparte
acknowledges aloss of 11 or 12,000 men, huled and
wounded, and has no trophics to buast of ; he says he
could take no colours, because the Allies always carry
them oif the field of bate! and he only took 19 canuun,
beeause he wished to spare his cavalry. ‘Phe number of
the wound d of the allied force is said to be about 23,000
men, of whom 10,000 were prisoners. ‘Lhe rest he aauuts
had been carried ot by the allied army iu carriages. Lt
is said, thata Flag of Truce had been sent by the allics,

June 5.—Unhapj ily all dre hopes which have beea
helu out to us of the security of Mamouign have proved
fallacious, ‘That eity has agiiu fallen into the hauds otf
the French, assisted by a& Diawh force. The Swedes it
appears, Whose protection was s0 wach relied upon, sud.
denmly quitted Hamburga and lett it to its fate. ‘The mo.
tive for this desertion of the ustortunate diamburghers ree
maias to be explained. Lt is sad in Che Minmasterial circles
that the Crown Prince of sweden cousiders he temporary
possession of Hamburgh ay of no Cousequcnce, and that
every thing must ultimately depend upon defeating the
main French army. ‘This may be Just reasoning, but ds
the effective co-operation of the Swedes to Le relied upon ?
Undoubtedly, if the Crown Prince bears down upon the
left tlank of the French army, and Austria takes a hostile
position upon their right, a most tmportant change must
very soon be eilected in the situation of Europe. This,
however, is, we fear, too much to look fur. in the mean
time, whatever may be the Swedish of operations,
the most dreadful calamities fall upon Hamburgh, whose
unfortunate inhabitants have only had a transient gleam
of freedom to be the more rigorously subjected to tyraany,
aud to become the victims of the must unrelenting venge-
The fate of Hamburgh is the more deeply to be lament-
ed, if, as it is said, a promise of protection was held out
from this country—if a promise was made of troops and
engineers, and of the occupation of Cuxhaven by a British
force. ‘Truly melancholy indeed is the lot of that city,
thus deprived from all quarters of promised protection,
and at length left utterly defenceless, exposed to all the
vengeance of a merciless euemy.
The dispatches of Sir Charles Stewart have made a deep
impression on the public mind; for they amount to a
confession of the inability of the allies to withstand the
force of the French. He states the allied army at 65000,
and the French at 120,000 men. Is this meant to apply
to the numbers engaged in the battle of Bautzen, or does
it include the whole of the armies on both sides? Lf the
View original latter, we must stand confounded at the exaggerated state
ments of the Russian force, which have been published,
in order to raise the expectations of the pubic. And we
apprehend, that if it alludes only to (he relative numbers
in the field of battle, on the 21st ult. it will be equaily
cheerless—for we have shewn upon gvod authori‘y ‘hat
the French garrisons, nut in the battle, amount to more
than 70,000 men. What has became of the innumerable
hosts of Russians? Did the armies of Russia aiso fee! the
inclemency of the Jast winter?

letter is, that the Russian Emperor would have maintaiu-

Advices from Sicily were received yesterda, tothe 8th

there seems to be some appearance of friendly aud com-
mercial arrangement between Lord W. Beatinek and the
Ministers of Murat, at Naples. <A cessation of all hostie

hopes upon this subject, with which, from day to day, the
public have been fed by the Ministerial Papers. Bona.
parte, itis true, is silent as to the intentions of the Cabinet
of Vienna; but his silence may be the dictate of a deep
and insidious poli¢y. What if Austria ultimately joins
him? ‘To what a situation will the Allies be reduced!
Their retreat towards Bohemia will then prove the eon.
summation of disaster. Their army will be placed in a
cul de sac, and will have no resource but to surrend r at
discretion, Will their situation be better if Austria ree
main neutral? We cannot discover in what manner they
are to profit by her neutrality. The only way in which’
the Allies can possibly derive advantage from the position
of their retreat is from the active assistance of Austria.
Her neutrality may render the destruction of the Allied
army less certain, but it cannot prevent in the smallest
degree the success of Bonaparte in all the objects for which
he is fighting,
Bonaparte, besides by the vantage ground he has gained,
aud his proximity to her territories, has the means of over
awing Austria, and these circumstances will no doubt have
this effect upon the well-known timidity and irresolution
of the Cabinet of Vienna. [tis impossible, therefore, for
us to look at the present position of the allied army with
any other feclings than those of tetror and alarm, for

agitation of the public miud, excited by the expectation of
a naval combat off our harbour, between the U.S’, frie
gate Chesapeuke, of 36 guns, and the British frigate Shan.
non, of 38 guns. We then gave our readers some of the
numerous and contradictory reports in circulation relat.
ing to the event, as they reached us at various hours of
the night; and in the morning a Postscript announced the
capture of the Chesapeake by the Shannon, as communi.
cated by many Gentlemen who were spectators of the ac.
tion and event.—The particulars of the carly movements
of the frigates were inserted in all our impessions, and we
now give the report of the Branch pilot, who carried
down the Chesapeake.
**AtS p.m. Lt left the Chesapeake, Boston Light-house

the Chesapeake prepared for action, standing for her; at

ter both vessels were yard-arm and yard-alongside each
other as if in the act of boarding : at that moment an im.
mense explosion took place on board the Cehsapeake,
which spread a fire from the foremast’ to the imizeninast,
apparently as high as the tops, on which both vessels were
cnvcloped instioke; andon the smoke clearing away, the
Koslish colours were seen flying on board the Chesapeake
