within this colony, of publicly ant privately Daa-
cing on Estates and other places, at) stated) periods,
has been perverted by them to purposes of the most
dangerous nature.
We have therefore thoneht fit, to withdraw the
pernussion, for, merely sanctioned by our different
Ordinances, with reward to the Dancing of Slaves
upon [states and other places, at certain appointed
times, and to forbid, as We do hereby Fonrsip and
prohibit, under any pretence whatsoever, **Any and
all Dancing, on any Hestates, or in any place within
the jurisdiction of this Govarnment, from henceforth
until the year VWe25, or watil our further picasure
and licence be nude huown.”
And we wara and caution all Proprictors, Mana-
gers, and others, having charge of Slaves, to prev-
ent any Dancing on Lstates or other places, strictly
forbidding on Lxtates or other places within this co-
Lony, all Assemblics for Wakes, Feasts, Festivals, or
Dancmy at Burials,on any pretence whatsoever, on

SaturDay, Marcu 26, 1814.
Wednesday last, we received, cia Demerary our Letter
Bag of the pst February Mail, with London papers to
the 3th February. | At the sume time we received Barba-
dus papers containing three days (to the \Nth February)
later news than by our Mail.—The intelligence which tt
conveys ts upon Itrench authority, and therefore not en-
titled to full credence ; tts certain nevertheless, that there
had been, at least, one severe batile betzecn the Allies
and the French troops under Banaparie, at Brienne, in
which he claims the victory, but admis that he lost avout
3000 killed and wounded, besides General Basie, whe
was killed, and General boresticr and Lejebre Des-
noucttes, who were severe/y wounded, and that, of course
the Allics sustaineda loss of double that number, (caving
him masler of the ficld.— The account of this aff ar hau
not been received from the Iead-quarters of he Aldics,
but we may justly infer avery differcat resull, when ut
ty known that the enemy were obliged lo retreat. Stace
this action, tl ts rumoured that there hus ocen another
Joueht near Chalons-sur-Saone, inwhich the Allies caus.

unerpected arrival vf VO,000 cavalry and a corps of horse
artillery, that had been detached by Prince Schwurtzen-
bere, anthwhtch reinforcement reached the field dia ing

encomy, those loss on this occasron ts supposed to har
been not less than 30,000 men. Il is said, that Bona-
parte afterwards retired to Parts; and, from the acive
preparations that are maktng for ts defente, by the con-
struction of pallisades and other barriers, thy are evt.

Weare happy to fad, that the KRegeney of spain have
acted with advegree of frrmness and resolution whtch some
cercumstances thathad previsusly transys tired, hud rendered
doublsful, [t appears, that one of the Grandecs which had
been deputed to present the terms of the Treaty agreed
wpon by Ferdinand of Spain and Bonaparte, had relurn-
cl frois Madrid, in order to lay before the French Kalor
4 copy of the Resolutions of the. Spantsh Goverunent,
aud ta chek they pledged themselves strictly to adicre,
one of whi h ts the following effecd:—* That the Spanish
Nation wil never treat wiih bunaparic, nor the French
Nation, wittl the King ts restured, and all their lerri-
forics evacuated by the Lrench (roups,’?——and he was
yo directed lo acquaint Nupolcon, that they would not
be concerned ta any treaty that was not safisfaclury lo
their Aitics, the British and Portucguese.
Negotiations are to be catered upou Gollenbure ; but,
judging from the Presidents communication to Congress,
and the Secretary of State’s letler to Lord Castlereagh,
there does not appear to be much likelihood of their lead.

As a natural result of the important intelligence which
had recently reached the British metropolis, the Funds had
risen considerably,
i —
Feb. 4.—Yesterday, at three o'clock, a Cabinet Coun-
cil was held at the foreign Office, in consequence of the
dispatches from America,
Hague, Jan, 28 —Wis Royal Highness has received
the importantintelligence of the town and fortress of [ere
togenbosch (Bois-le-Duc) being taken from the enemy.
After that General Bulow had considerably reinforced the
troops which for some time past had blockaded the place,
an attack was made on the town, and the French Com.
mandant found himself under the necessity of retreating
from it.—Qn this occasion the inhabitants attacked the
French garrison, and were active in forwarding the entry
of the Russian troops. ‘Their zeal on this occasion is
highly praised by Gen. von Bulow. They continued their
endeavours for preparing an attack on the citadel, which
was on the pointof being made on the evening of the 26th,
when the garrison capitulated, which was 900 men, above
800 of whom, as prisoners of war, are to be sent to Siberia ;
but the Officers, and 100 veterans, have obtained permis-
sion to return to France, after having given their parole
of honour not to scrve again during this war, either azainst
the troops of His Majesty the King uf Prussia, or those
of his high allies.—With the 70 pieces of artillery found
in the fortress it may immediately be put in a state of de-
fence ; aud this service readered by Gen. von Bulow and
his valiant troops, and for which we are indebted to them,
is thereby rendered of dyuble ollicacy. Nou less satisfactip
View original on is derived from the conduct of the citizens of Hertogen-
bosch by this twice repeated assurance, that no Nether.
launder will evade any sacrifices or danger when the inter.
est, when the navonal interest or reputation aad indepen.
dence are concerned.”’
Feb. 7.—Six Dutch Mails and a Messenger from Lord
Castlereagh arrived yesterday,—Hlis Lordship arrived at
Basle on the 18th, and a German Paner mentions, that
after a long conference with M. de Metternich, Count
Nesselrode, and Baron Tlardenberg, it was resolved to
make new overtures to Bonaparte. Wedo not attachany
credit ¢o this statement. Lord Castlereagh certainly had
a conference with the Emperor of Austria and the Minis.
ters of the Allies immediately after bis arrival ;—and we
believe we shall be found to be correct in stating, that the
object of the first conference related to Holland aud the
Netherlands, It was settled that Hlolland should have a
strong barrier and accession of territory on the side of the
Netherlands, Tlis Lordship was received, as he deserved
tu be, in the most distinguished manucr ; the Emperor ‘of

reports of Che wast Giree days, with the alleged tiring upon
the french coast, had inade us extremely ansious for their
arrival. ‘Phe Mondleur of the 2d infornns us, that—
‘After (ne taking Of St. Dizter, the Emperor advanced
gn the roar of the enemy, at Biseuney beat him on the
2Uth, and louk possession of the town and castle, aftera
pretty smaré action with the reareguard.”

‘uieition made in the official paper, ‘a
pretty stat action wath the rear-guard of the Allies.”
but the otaer Papers, the minor Paris Papers, are more
saclhog and ‘*sounding in the index.’ They present us
with more particular accounts, and ‘the pretty smart
action’? ds magoifled, like kadstajf’s accounts of his ex.
rlous on Cead*s Patl, into a great battle. One of these
Papers, of the 2d, assures us, that an express arrived at™
Parts atfourin (he morning of the Ist, from the Lupe.or’s
road-Guarters, with an account of the complete defeat of
the Allies on the 29th and SOth. “Phe courier saw
15,000 Prisco rs”? Procdivies of valour by (he (roops,
ind feats af gailantry by the country people with their
seythes and forks, swell this #cconnt in the Journal de
Faris, which, not content with this complete victory,
adds, that there are *Sprivate letters from Troyes, which
ypeak of another acuien, connected probably wath the pre.
ceding, in which 15,000 French troops, half conscripts,
engased SO,G00 of the enemy, killed 4 or 5000, and lose
only 300 1’ — Mighty well, Mer. kditor of the Journal de
Paris! butif the express with the above intelligence reaches
ed Paris, as you assure us itdid, at four in the morning of
the lst, why is it not published in the Monieur of the 2d ?
Whey is no Bulletin transmitted,—no letter of the Em-
press? No placards at Paris? No announcement at the
heatres? No cannon fired? No rejoicings of an
kind 2?) Why does the Monétewr preserve so profound a
silence upon all these grand exploits? Why? Because
no such exploits had Deen perioried.
Keb. 9 —The two first of the dispatches (published in
the Gazette last pight) are from a British Minister, dotail-
ing, from towns in france, the operations carried on
against the Power and the Ruler that were to dictate sub.
mission to the [Emperor of Russia on the borders of the
Wolga, and to plant the tri-coloured standard on the
banks of the ‘Thames. The opening of the year 1814,
which was to sce a French General in the capital of the
British Empire, behold as an English Minister marching
with the armies of the Allies towards the capital of France.
Lord Burghersh’s dispatches are from Vescul of 14th
and from Langres of the 18th; of course, not so late by
a fortnight as theaccounts we had by the last Paris Papers,
But they furnish us with very interesting military details
and, which is of much more impartancc, they assert this
fact, that every effort made by Bonaparte to induce the
people of France to rise against the Allies has failed.
Almost the first operation of the Allies in I°rance was to
secure the debourhes of the mountains of the Vosges,
They form one of the principal barriers to (he entrance ine
to the heart of France on that side. The French Genéfal
Milhaud had been sent ta get possession of them: but the
Bavarian General de Roy drove him from St. Dicz, and
this important position was secured by the Allies. Mil.
haud was driven to Raon l’Etape, on the frontiers of the
depariment of the Voges. The Prince of Hesse moved
upon Besancon and invested it, and General Burna pro.
ceed towards Lyon. Meanwhile the Bavarians and the
Prince Royal of Wirtemberg chaced the strong country on
the right of Prince Scwartzenberg. ‘Lhe French force at
Epinal was driven to Charmes with loss, and the Prince
moved on to Langres, the Bavarians under General Wrede
flancking and defending his right wing. Continuing to
follow the movement of the Austrian General, we find in
View original Lord Burghersh's second dispatch, that it was expected
the Fench would make ‘some defence at Langres. Mortter
was posted there, bat, on the advance of the Austrians,
he retreated on the loth ult. towards Chaumonut, wloich
heoccupied with 12,000 men ‘Phe Prince Royal of Wir.
temberg, who cominanded the advanced guard, was direct.
ed to march agaiust Chaumont, and was expected to reach
it on the evening of the 12th. The official account does
not bring down events to a later date: but we know (hat
Mortier retired froma Chanmont upon Troyes, and after-
Wards upon Nogeotesur-scine,
Whilst these events were passing in this quarter, Mar-
shal Biucher advanced upon Naacy ; Marmont retreated
before him with great rapidity, breaking down all the
bridzes over the Saar. On the 17th Blacher entered
Nancy, and (hus forced the noclit of Cen, Wrede, WV ho
formed the right of Schwartzcn berg. Hence the three
Generals were in communication, and we see no reason to
depart from the opinion we expressed yesterday, that
though Bonaparte was on the 29thin the roar of Sehwart-
zenberg; in his rearsonly, because Schwartzeuberg was
advineing, Blucher must have Dech ta the rear of and
close upon Bonaparte. There have Deen sume atlairs near
Strasburg, in which the enemy have been as unsuceessful
asin every other quarter.
The Emperors of Russia and Austria and the King of
Prussia, are all in brnce.
Fed. 10.—The empire of the modern Charles magne is
falling asunder fast. very day some partof the edifice
Bives way. ‘Shits foundation is louses it standeth on the
Sand.” ‘othe other defections fiom his yoke, to the
other diminutions of his territory, we have to add the loss
of eroat part of Flanders and Brabant. Brussels and
Bruges bave been entered by the Allies. Given has cman.
cipaled hevself by the efurts of her own inbabitants. Os.

Translation of a Note from Lord Cathcart, to thé
Count de Nessetrode, dated Toplitz, Sept. I, ISLS.
The undersigned Ambassador of His Britannic Majesty
to the Iymperor of all the Russias, desiring to avail himself
of the first occasion to renew the subject respecting Ame.
rica, which was brought into discussion in a conference at
the moment of departure from Reichenbach, has the ho-
nor to address this note to Ilis Excellency the Count de
Nessehode.—Although the Prince Regent, for reasons
which have been already made known, has not found him-
self in a situation to a cept the mediation of His Imperial
Majesty for terminating the discussions with the United
States of America, His Royal Highness desires nevertheless
to give effect to the beneficent wishes, which His Imperial
Majesty has expressed of seeing the war between Great
Britain and America soon terminated, to the mutual satis-
faction of the two Governments.—With this view, His
Royal Highness having learned that the Envoys Plenipo-
teutiary of the United States for negotiating a peace with
Great Britain, under the medation of Mis tmperial Majes-
View original ty, have arrived in Russia, notwithstanding that he finds
himself under the necessity of not accepting the interposi- -
tion of any friendly Power, in the question which forms
the principal object in dispute between the two States, he
is nevertheless ready to nominate Plenipotentiavics to treat
directly with the American Plenipotentiaries.—His Royal
Highness sincercly wishes that the conferences of these
Plenipotentiaric Smay result in re-establishing, between the
two nations, the blessings and the reciprocal advantages of
peace.—If through the good officers of His Imperial Ma.
Jesty, this proposition should be accepted, the Prince Re.
gent would prefer that the conferences should be held a€
London, on account of the facilities which it would give to
the discussions. —But if this choice should meet with in.
superable obstacles, His Royal Highness would consent to
substitu¢e Gottenburghas the place nearest to Mngland.—
The undersigned, &c. (Signed) CATHCART.
The Secretary of State to Lord Castlereagh.
Department of State, January, 1814,
My Lonp—I have had the honor to receive, by a flag of
tracy, your Lordship’s letter of the 4th of Nor. Jast, and
acopy of a note which ITis Britannic Majesty’s Aimbas.
<idur at the Court of St. Petersburgh presented to the
Kv sian Government on the Ist of Sept. preceeding.—-
By this communication, it appears that His Royal High.
ness the Prince Regent received the mediation offered by
His Smperial Majesty, to promote peace between the Unit.
ca states and Great Britain, but proposed to treat direct]
wtth tac United states at Gottenburgh or London, and that
He tad requested the interposition of the good officers of
the domperor io favour of such arrangment-—Hayving laid
your Lordship’s communication before the President, Lan
instructed (o state, for the information of His Royal Migh-
aess the Prince Regent, that the President has secn with
regret this new obstacle to the commencement of a nego-
tiation for the accommodation of differences between the
United States and Great Britain, Asthe lymyperor cf Rus.
sta was distinguised for his recitude and unpartiality, and
was morvover engaged in a war, as an ally of England,
Whereby it was his intercsts to promote peace between the
United States and Great Britain, the President could not
donbt that bis Royal Highness the Prince Regent would
accept the mediation, which His Imperial Majesty had of.
fered to them, It was the confidence with which the high
character of the Emperor inspired the President, that ine
daced him, disregarding considerations which a more cau.
tious policy might have suggested, to accept the overture
with promptitude and to send Ministers to St Petersburgh,
'o make advantage of it. ~It would have been very satis.
factory to the President, if His Royal Highness the Prince
Regent had found it compatible with the views of Great
Britain, to odopt similar measure, as much delay might
have becn asioded, in accomplishing an object which, it is
edinitted, is of high importance to both nations,—Vhie
course proposed as a substitude for negociations at St. Pe.
tersburgh under the anspices of the Emperor of Nussiag
could not, Lmust remark to your ‘Lordship, have bee
required for the purpose of keeping the United States une
conected against Great Britain with any allairs of the Con.
tinent. ‘There was nothing in the proposed mediation
tending to such a result. The terms of the overture indi-
cated the country, cflering to bring the parties together,
not ay an umpire, butas acommon friend, to discuss and
settle theie difierences and respective claims, in & manner
satisfactory to themselves, His Imperial Majesty shewed
the intersts which he took i in the welfare of both parties.
—W herever the United States may treat, they will treat
with the sincere desire they have repeatedly manifested, of
(crmimating the present contest with Great britain, oa
conditions of reciprocity, consistent with the rights of both
parlies, as Sovereign and independent nations ; and calcne
lated not only to establish present harmony, but to pro.
vide, as far as possible against future collisions which might
interrupt it. ~-Before giving an answer to the proposition
communicated by your Lordshis, to treat with the Cnited
States, independently of the Russian Mediation, it would
have been agreable to the President to have heard from the
Plenipotentiaries of the United States, sent to St, Peters.

acceptance of it by another, formsarelation between them
the delicacy of which connot but be felt. From the known
character, however, of the Emperor, and the benevolent
views with which his Mediation was offered, the President
cannot doubt that be will see with satisfactton, a concur.
rence of the United States in an allernative, which, under
extsting circumstances, alfurds the best prospect of oh.
taining speedily what was the object of his interposition.
I amaccordingly instructed to make known to your Lord.

Regent, that the President accedes to his Proposition, and
will take the measures depending on him for Carrying it
into cftect at Guttenburgh, withas little delay as possible;
i¢ being presumed, that Nis Majesty the King of Sweden,
as the friend of both partics, will readily acquiesce in the
choice of a place for their pacific negotiations, within his
dominions. —The President is duly sensible of the attention
of His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, in giving the
orders to the Admiral commanding the British squadron on
