Extract of a Letter, sent express from Washington, to
News bork, dated April 7, in the Evening.
“FT send an express to New-York, with thie Ietter,
that it may be in season to go by the Chauncey,
‘The House of Representatives have Chis day, by a
very great majority, passed a Dill repealing the kmbargo
and Nou-luportation Laws, which Bill will pase the
Senate in a day or two, by an unanimous vote, or vearly
20. The free importation of British manufactured goods
will, after this weck, be al owed iato al the ports of the
Wasted States, in neutral ships, on accounts of persons
residing in neutral countries.”
The President’s Message bear ample testimony of the
humbled tone and demeanour of the servile adherent of the
lately tyrant of france; and as these were so strikingly
manifested before the Despoat’s overthrow was effected,
or at least before any advice of that event could have
reached America, we may reasonably expect that a due
knowledge of it will produce unqualified submission on
the partof Mr. Madison, as the only means of saving
him from the effects of our provoked rengeance, ifnotalso
those of the resentnent of the people of the United States,
whose confidence he has so much abused, and whose in.
terests he has sacrificed to his own prefidious purposes,
Paris, May 19.—Tbe peace is signed: such at least is
the universal assertion; and every one pretends to have
received his information from an authentic source. Jt has
not yet been published, it is added, because the ratificati-
on of the Prince Regent of England is waited for. The
following, occording to report, are the principal conditi-
ons of a treaty which must constitute the happiness of na.
tions :—Guadaloupe, Martinique, and St. Domingo, to
be restored to France, who will also recover the Isle of
Irance, and have two factorics on the Malabar and Coro.
mandel coasts; one half of the ships and artillery in for.
(resscs now occupied by the allicd armies, to be restored
to her; a part of Be'gium to remain her’s, together with

View original Mulhausen, the Contat, &c. There shall be no talk,
either of contributions, war expences, or any other extras
ordinary imposition: no picture, nor any monument ef
the aris, will be removed.
Madrid, May 6.—Most of the Grandecs have follows
ed the example of the Duke del Infantadu, and King Fers
dinand is surrounded with the principal chiefs of the noe
bility. Many prelates also repair to that youg monarch,
The Cortes appear determiued to persevercin their sy3e
tem of rigorously giving the law, and hold up their cons
stilutional eharter philosophically decreed in the Isla,
which was sheltered from all the dangers of war.
Gen. Lacy, of Irish origin, has been placed at the head
of the troops which the liberal party has cullected to supe
purtifs cause.
However, the arrival of the King is announced for the
14th inst.; so that the struggleapproaches its close. Fere
dinand has the most beneficent intentions; but opposi-s
Nov, inetead of weakening, only inflaimes the pretensions
of cach party.
Hanover, May 6.—Nis Royal Tighness the Duke of
Canbidse wall depart in a few days for Holland, whence
he will return with the Hered. Prince of Orange into Enge
land, fur (he marciage of her Royal Highwess the Princess
Charlotte of Wales. It is not known whether that Prince
wil aticrwaids go to Paris as it has beeu announced.
The Duke of Clarence has struck his flag on board the
Imprognadle, in the Downs, and returned to town, advice
having been received that the Hmyeror of Russia aud the
ning of Peussia did nut propose leaving Paris before the
sth of June.
de Allied armicsare on theirmarch home; and the dea
parture of the Crowned Meads from Paris fur Loudon has
been delaycd only by the temporary obstacles that occure
red to the signature of the Treaty of Peace, but which by
this time have becn happily removed. The Emperor of
Russia lately visited Prince Eugene at the Castle of Sainte
feu, at Montmorency, where he dined with him, his moe
ther and sister, This is the first notice of Jusephine and
the céadevant Queen of Holland, that we have read in the
Paris Papers. —The Emperor of Austria is now styled
Emperor of Germany. This is as it ougt to be—the
Emperor Francis is, by all means, entitled to resume his
foriuer rank and influence in Germany, the Empire of
which will be restored under the powertull suspices of that
Mtonarch.—There is no further mention of Bona; ate.
Poe French Government is assembling a great niilitary
force at Lisle, and apparently they do not wish to let trae
vel ers pass through Flanders. Three English Gentlemen
returning from Paris to England, by Brussels, last weck,
though provided with passports, countersigned by Lord
Castlercagh, were stopped by General St. Cyr, and not
suffered to proceed. They were obliged to retura and
take their journey by the direct route to Calais.
By some of the Prenth papers it is again assorted that
Peace is signed, and that the publication of the Treaty one
ly waits the ratification of the Prince Regent of England.
By it, we are told, Guadaloupe, Martinique, St. Domingo,
and the Isle of France are to be restored to France, who
is also to be allowed two factorics on the coasts of Mae
labar and Coromandel; she is to have a part of Belgium ¢
no monument ef the ar(s is to be taken away, &c.—From
the nature of the terms, we may conclude that th.s is but
another premeture report, and that these rumours ex} ress
only the wishes of the writers. Such terms are eqvally
inconsistent with policy and with justice.
Lord Walpole arrived at Hanover, he is to go to Pe
tersburgh in quality as Ambassador from England.
A corps of !400 laucers is to be raised at Hanorer.
