By the arrivaicf our Mail Boat, which left Barbados
onthe 5th instant, we are enabled to presentour Readers
wlth details of the continued success vf our drms on the
French fronticrs—as also of the ininterrupled restora.
tion of the Prince of Orange to his ancient States.
London Papers have been received in Barbados to the
23d Dec. and the most prevalent feature in them tends
towards a general pacefication.
View original eng ee
London Papers, including the 23d of December, were
brought by the Venerable; ana, having been ohiizingly
permitted the use of them, we find their contents of con-
siderable importance.—In the first place, the Patriots im
Ifol and, with the assistance of the allied forces, are exe
pelting tHe French Civil Authorities, and their troops,
from every quarter of (hat country, which is now so far
restored to order aad (canquility, as to al ow of some con.
siderations for its futurc Govetnment. Towards this ob.
jeet, the title of Stadhoider €tormerly that of His Serene
Highness the Prince of Orauge) was abolished within a few
days after his return to Holland, and in its stead he has
becn proclaimed sovereign of the United Provinces and of
the Netherlands ; and, a Constitution and Code of Laws
suitab'e fora Monarchical Government are about to be
establisned.—This stey, d.d net enter into the calculations
of the British Government, vor was it perhaps Known by
the Stadtholder iimself, when he left Eugland,—and it ap.
pears nut only to have occasioned much Surprise, but is
considered by many as an impolitic measure on the part of
the Dutch people.—The Iiereditary Prince of Orange,
Who was with bied-viarshal Wellingtou in Spain, has
arrived in Tloliand; aud, in consequence of the prepara.
lions that are evidently making, and the hints that are
given, au alliance with the ILouse of Orange, by the mar.
riage of that Prince with the Princess Charlotte of Wales,

A second iditiun of the Londow Star of the 23d De-
cember, apprises us of a recent victory over the enemy
wader Soult, near Bayonne, by the troops commanded by
field-.iarsual We'lingtow which led to the reteeat of the.
principal partot tao Lvench soidiers, leaving only a suf.

as usual, claims the advantage, aad asserts that the allied
forces lost, besides killed and wounded, 1200 men prison.
ers. Nothing beyond a verbal report had reached Eng-
land; bulthe official dispatches, were momently expected.
A third Edition of the same paper coutains information
of the acceptance of some Preliminaries that had been pro.
posed to Bonaparte by the Allics, in order to facilitate
Peace ;—and in doing this, he pretends to have been in-
duced hy no other consideration than that of restoring
tranquilfty to the families of Fraauce—insinuating, that
his resources were great, and his invincibility unimpaired
by those temporary reverses which his armies had expe-
rienced.—'That terms should have been offered to Bona.
parte, and at a period too when the allied armies of the
North had entered the French territories, does not cor-
respond with that elevation of character which one would
have thought likely to bethe result of the glorious carecr
that had led them beyond the Rhine. Thus, however,
unhappily for humanity, has terminated one of the most
glorious campaigns in the history of war; for [as will be
seen by the Declaration of the Allies inserted in our last
page], upon crossing the Freoch lines, they addressed the
‘*kmperor Napoleon” in terms more of supplication than
those which should have actuatcd them——and assured him,
that they wished to be upon the best feoting with His
Majesty, ‘“Swhose Empire they were desirous ef extend.
ing beyond what France, wider her Kines, ever knew.”
View original To joinin this trace—for a vermanen® peace with Napo-
leon can never be expected-—lord Castlereagh, itis added,

Dec. 1,—There are various reports circulated, unon the
authority of letters from Paris. Some me rtion the intend.
ed departure of a Minister with proposals of peace to tne
Allies ; others, that Bonaparte’s Speech to the Legistatve
Body, which meets to morrow, will be very pacifie. If
it be so, it will bea mere manwuvre to facilitate the cous.
cription ; and as to any overtures from him we hope they
will not be listened to. One letter has been rec@Wed, and
we be believe has been communicated to the higher autho-
ritics in this country, containing two lines, which weshail
be most happy indeed to find well founded :-—**T'he Gor-
ernment is olinost at its last grasp: ‘The inost important
avents are preparing.”
There is not a ship of war now at anchor in Plymouth
Sound, all the smaller ships of war having been sent off
Bordeaux, it being supposed that the Americans there will
make a push to escape.
The Emperor Alexander, with that wise and generous
policy which guides all his actions, has set a!. tac Polish
prisoners at liberty, anct sent them back to their own
couutry, the Generals giving their parols that they will
not again take up arms against the welfare of Europe.
At Gotha, the Poles who were still with the French ATM y
serit (har Generals to Bonaparte with a declaration, iat
they would quit his army, as they had then no hope of
otherwise returbing lo their native country. Bonaparte
received this declaration with much violence of timper,
but at lenghth requested that they would remain with him
nother week. ‘The Poles a reed, but touk care to mark
carefully the Gime, whick expired on their atrival at Frank-
fort, and they then, to the number of 30v0, all that re.
mained of the Polish force, wenteover to the Allies.
‘Stralsund, Nov. 16.—Anarrangement has been made,
under which the fortress of Stettin is to be surrendered up
on the 20th inst. The terms of capitulation are, that tle
soldiers of the garrison remain prisoners of war’ that the
Officers be allowed to return to France, and to retain their
private property ; but with the condition that they are not
to serve against the Allies until after the re-establishment
of peace.”
Dec, 2.—There is no longer any dowbt, we never had
any, of the disposition of the people of the Netherlauds to
throw off the yoke of Batiaparte.—Uiaded by any fo.
reign power, unarvied, in the presence even of the French
Authorities, they have not been restrained from shewin#
their hatred of the Tyrant, and theis disposition to rise
against him.—From the Ichine to sea; at Brussel, Brugge
Ostende, every where the spirit of the people is decided]
hostile to the French, ‘They have risen against the Coas-
criplion-—they are eager for the approach of the A tlico.
They call out for arms and assistance from the country,
At the first signal the whole country would be up, aud
the Netherlands would pass away from the power of
irauce as quickly as Holland has dove, whose sudden and
easy transition, wilhbout a groan or struggle, from adject
bondage to perfect freedom, resembles rather the involun.
tary act of awaking from natural sleep, than the delibe.
rate and irresistible cnergy of a suffering people unex pect.
edly throwing off an intolerable burthen.—This disposi.
lion of the Netherlands was made known to our Govern.
ment by the arrival, late last night, of two Licutenants of
the Navy, whose important information has been commu.
nicated to the public ia the following
**T'wo Lieutenants of the Royal Navy, long prisoners
in France, are just arrived from Holland and Flanders.—
One of them left Admiral Ferricr off the Texel on the 29th,
with two sail of the line. The French flag was still fly.
ing in the Dutch squadron, and they appeared to be for-
tifying Kyke Downs, but the seamen deserted in great
numbers.—Admiral Ferrier had hoisted an Orange flag
over the French, The Dutch ships had been hauled into
the Niew Diep. Admiral Ferrier had Jeft two sail of the
line off Scheveningen. The spirit of all the Dutch, their
cnemity to France, and the anxiety for the English, are
indescriable.-—The other Lieutenant left Brugge on Sunday
last. On the Saturday, he was at Brussel; the people
there had risen against the conscription. Placards were
struck up against the French, and al/ kinds of puns against
the [Xinperor were exhibited. While the Officer was in
the streets, he saw the populace break all the windows of
the Prefect’s house. —He was at Autwerpen on the 26th:
the people were crying out for the English. The ships
were all laid up, and there were no seamen in thef{,.—
He passed through Ostende the next day: the spirit of the
people was the same as in the rest of Flanders, all deter.
minedly against the French. When these Officers lef¢
Admiral Young yesterday, he had sent forward Mr. Tho.
mas to buoy the entrance to the Roompot; but the wind
was S. S. E. and he could not possibly work into that
anchorage. The Prince of Orange passed the Deeps on
Monday, and was saluted by the ships laying there.”

the Datch bhing very nat @tally occupied almost entirely
with their owu tnternal affairs, furnish us less information
than we could have wished; but they all wear the most
favourable aspect. Still do the Dutch papers, upon the
authority of tne Russian Officer, insist upon the signal
defeat of Davoust, and we have no doubt ourselves of the
truth of their assertion, Lor, by the last dispatch from
Mr. Thornton, dated on the 19th ult. he informed us, that
Generals Walmoden, Benningsen, and Adlererantz, had
been entrusted with the direction of the operations against
Davonust, and the re-capture of Hamburgh, <As they were
then on their march, a few days only could elapse before
they would come in contract with Davoust. ‘The account
is, that he was defcated with the loas of from I6 to 18,000,
and that he escajsed with great diticulty.—A Harwich
letter of yesterday adds, that the Cossacks are in Ham-
burgh. The defeat of Davoust would be followed by the
immediate liberation of that city.—If we attach credit to
the report of Davoust’s defeat, we see no reason to refuse
our belicf to the other intelligence mentioned in these papers.
‘ say that Kehl, opposite to Stratsburgh, has been
taken by storm; that the Allies have actually crossed the
Rhine, and taken Coblentz, Bonn, and other places ;_ that
Wittemberg has been evacuated, and Torygau surrendered.
Now, we took it for granted, indeed the Crown Prince's
Bulletin prepared us for such an cvent, that the Allies did
not mean to make the Rhine the Jimit of their march. We
felt confident that leaving Bonaparte no breathing time,
no panse to recruit or repair his disaster, they would fol-
Jow up their blow, and penctrate at once into France and
the Netherlands, where, particularly in the latter coun-
try, draticetion to the Tyrant hed half completed their

Bonaparte, ‘Sif you had not becu to Moscow.”—Eryo,
having teen to Moscow, the Allies must penetrate into
France —the invader must be invaded. Weexpect, there.
fore, tat the next accounts of the Allies will be dated
frow Wiis side of the Khine. The last Paris papers con.
tained nothing incompatible with these accounts in the
Dutch «..ocrs. They told us that the Allies had teft the
Rhine o: posite Cologne, and that Macdonald had marched
trom Coliogne with part of his troops towards Wesel.
The Aiaes wight then have immediately crosscd over to
Boon and Coblentz to proceed to the Netherlands, give
life and vigour to che spirit of insyrrection, and thus place
theie force between Macdonald and the French frontiers.
With respect to the fortress of Kehl, the same Paris pa-
ers informed that Bavarian troops were near it.
The Prince of Orange landed on Wednesday at Scheve-
ming, the port from which Charl. the Second embarked in
the year 1660.—The most gratifying intellizence from
Holland is, that the Patriots are proceeding with the ut-
most activity in completing the emancigation of their
country, assisted in this glorious labour by those troops,
so appalling to Bonaparte, the Cossacks. ‘They are at
Amsterdam, the Ihaguey at Letdeu, at Utrecht: they are
the advanced guard of a much more numerous forces and
it was calculated that by the beginning of next week there
wowtbeat lest 50,000 regatar (roops in the United
Provinces. ‘This removes all uneasincss with respect to
auy allempt which Bonaparte mig!it make to crush the ris.
ing spirit of independence.
Part of the armament preparing for Holland consists of
a strong rockct brigade. ‘The embarkation will be super.
inteaded by Col. Congreve himself.
Sir Thomas Graham leaves town, we believe, today, to
take the command of the xpeditioa. The regular force
will consist of nearly 10,000 men.
“4luarlem Nov. 29.—Several accounts from the banks
of the Ysselannounce, that the Prussian General, Poppen,
with a column of 800 men and 4) pieces of canuon, broke
up on the 28th to march by the way of Doesburg and
Arnhem fo Utrecht. Gen. Benkendorf arrived on the 27th
at Zwolle, with 2000 hussars, 2U00 infantry, aud ten pie.
ces of cannon.—Gen, Bulow, with the main army, which
is estimated at 30,600 men, broke up on the 25th from
Munster. Zutphen was occupied by the Allies, but the
French had still a garrison in Deventer.”
By a private letter from Leer, dated the 2ist, we are
informed that—**On the 17th, at two in the afternoon,
the Crown Prince of Sweden entered Bremen, amidst the
greatest rejoicings. ‘The garrison of Maagdenburg has

Dec. 18.—A Dutch Mail arrived last night with papers
fo the 17th inst. The Allies are marching towards Ant.
werpen, where gecat apprehensions aud disorder are said
to exist. On the land side it supposed it may be attacked
with advantage, Bonaparte never having calculated upon
any sueh attack. It is distant only about 25 miles from
Breda, with which the intercourse has been facilitated by
a paved road over the intervening heath, formed by Na.
polcon to connect his Flemish and Dutch possessions. It
is also stated, that the whole fleet is laid up beyond the
cry, inthe Upper Scheldt, from which escape would be
impossible. ‘Lhe aest’tions from the flect are numerous.
The whole crew of one of the shivs lately dcserted in a
body. Se L
Dec, 22.—A Mail from Holland arrived late ths morn.
ing. thas brought important intelligence, of which the
following are the heads. —The Allies, as we stated yester-
dity, are said to have passed the Rhine. Thirty thousand
Austrians are reported to have crossed Dusseldorff and to
be in full march for Brussel.— The Russians are within a
,aile and ahall from Antwerpen, which acoording to some
accounts, has been evacuated by the enemy.—Bergen op
Zoom, Gorcum, aud Heusden are said to have surrendered.
The Bommel Island has been taken by the Prussians.—
The accounts relative to the ‘Texel tlect are con tradictory.
Some state that it has been given up to the Patriots.—
others that Verhucil is stillin Fort La Saale, threatening
tu destroy the flect if he is not permitted to proceed . to
France.—Sir Thomas Graham arrived on the 17th in the
island of Tholea.—There is no doubt of disturbances
having taken place in various parts of France. Paris is
in a ferment.
‘Hague, Dec. 14.—According to intelligenca received
we must conclude that Bergen op Zoom has surrendered,
it being asserted that the French have left that city, and
that the same event has taken place with the Bosch and
Antwerpen ; it appears evident from all circumstances that
there exist great confusion and disorganization among the
French ; it is even reported as a fact, thaflthe conscripts
in several departments of France have refused to march.”
**Rotterdam, Dec. 15.—Vhe number of the Allied
troops which are marching by Gorcum, and by the road
of Breda, and against Antwerpen, is very great.—lIt ap-
pears that Antwerpen will not be defended ; the garrison,
consisting of 5000 men, having quitted it, as itis said, to
take a position at Bresgat, and there prevent any ap-
proaches ; and, it was feared, that as the town is not ten-
able, the ships of war, as wellas wharf, would be burnt.”
With regard to Flissingen, the Island of Walcheren is
already relieved, and it is the same with Tholen, but we
are yet without any intelligence from South Beverland.
At Bergen op Zoom the gates are shut, but there is no

There are now daily arrivals from Holland. Two

Thursday afternoon. They have brought the information
of Helvoctsluys and the Bril! ding in’ possession of the
Patriots. The former had a Prassian garrison. These
schuyts have also brought a report of Flashing being ia
possessiog of the Daich. We shall be glad to find ius

our flect.—The intelligence from every part of Holland
is as satisfactory as could be wished. ‘The evacuation of
Utrecht by the French is already known. On Tuesday
last, Gen. Blucher, son of the great General, arrived at
Utrecht, with 1500 men; and in the course of the even.
ing, Prince Naritschkin reached that place with 2000
Russians, consisting of infantry and cavalry. Certain ine
telligence had reached the Hague on Tuesday, that 18,000
of the allies had arrived on the Yesel. ‘They had taken
Zufphen by storm, with as little luss as pos:iuie to the ine
habitants. Deventer was their next object of atteck.—
Vhe plage had been summoned, and having refused to sure
render, it was expected immediately to be carricd by storm.
Bonaparte has had recouvse, for a loan not amounting
to £1,200,00U. to the system of Mandats, to obtaia
supplies for his army. ‘These Mandats are (uv be sent to
the Prefects to pay the requisitions made for provisions,
hay, horses, &c. for the army; and the price is to be,
not the market price, but the price which the Prefect
chuses to fix as the value —The buyer is to determine
the price of the article—he is to pay for it in paper, which
paper is to be assigned for liquidation upon taxes which
may be utterly unproductive. Were is a recurrence to
the principles of Robespierre, and this is done for so small
asim as about a million sterling.
There is an evident unwillingness in these papers to
speak in detail of mililary events. Articles dated from
Gorcum and Nimeguen, are inserted, in order to keep
up the delusion which Bonaparte wishes to spread respect.

bodies of truops alung the whole line of the Rhine. Sto.

ther article inserted in the Journal de Paris, cal‘ing up-
on the people to come forward to repel invasion, affords
a strong pro@Mef the alarm that pervades the Frenca Gog
vernment, and shews also that that alarm is much inciease
ed by the Proclamations issued for the protection of the
persons and property of the inhabitants of France. An
account is given of an action near Verona on the 19th ult.
in which victory is scarcely even claimed for Beauharnois,
who, there is every probability from this Statement, sus.
tained a serious defeat. And there are letters from Milan,
in which it is stated that considerable alarm prevailed in
