Since our last, we obtained the loan of a London Paver
of the 26th October, which wasin possession of the Capt.
of the Fur Packet, and have copied an article which ev-
plains the reasow for protracting the wccting of the Gene-
ral Consress of Vienna, and also affords sume infurt ation
relative te the Note that was to be presented by Talley-
rand, from which it appears that France is jealous of the
increase of territory that is expected by the neighbouring
Powers, and wishes that with the reductton of her limits,
to what they were in 1792 the Continental Nations may
likewise be placed upon the same footing that they were at
that period.
It has been reported by an arrival from America at St.
Bartholomew’s that since their Army under Major-Cen.
Brown had been reinforced by by the troops which left
Plattsburgh with Gen, Tzard, an action had takea place
some time about the 25th October, and terminated success.

We have this day the inexpressible satisfactian to con-
gratulate our readers upon the favorable icsue of the cam-
pain in Upper Canada. Our flect on the 17th of Octo.
ber, arrived at the head of Lake Ontario, with supplice
for our forces under General Drummond,—who immedia-
tely advanced to attack the enemy, and compelled them,
without the loss ef a man, to destroy their works at [ort
rie, aud retreat entirely beyond the boundary of our ter-
ritory. Gen. Brown had gone to Sacket’s Harbor, where
the Americans were in momentary expectation of au attack.
Massachusetts has proposed a General Convention by
Deputation from all the States, to be held at Hartford in
Connecticut, on the 15th of December. Connecticut,

Interruption of the Proceedings of the Congress of
This morning (Oct. 26) we received Paris Papers of
Friday and Saturday last, they state, that the proceedings
of the Congress have been suddenly suspended until the
Ist of Nov... The following declaration has appearcd on
the subject :—
**Vienna, Oct. 8—The Plenipotentiaries of the various
Courts, who signed the Treaty of Peace of Paris, on the
30th of May, 1814, have taken into consideration the22d
article of this Treaty, by which it is said, ‘that all Powers
Who have been engaged on both sides in the present war
shall send Plenipotentiaries to Vienna, in order to regulate,
in a general Congress, the arrangements hecessary fer cem-
Dieting the dispesitious of the present Treat ¥,
View original ‘And after having maturely reflected on the situation
in which they are placed, and on the dutics which are ime
posed on them, they have ayrced that they cannot better
fulfil them than by establishing, im the frst instance, free
and confidential! communications between the Plouipoten.
-tiaries of all the powers.
*“But they are convinced at the same time, that itis the
interest of all the intervenning Powers to suspend Phe ge-
ucral meeting of their Plenipotentiaries until the period
when the question on which they must decide shall have
attained a degrees of maturity sullicient for the result, bee
ing conformable tu the principles of public law, to the
stipulations of the Treaty of Paris, aud to the just expec.
(ation of our conicmporarics.
‘Phe formal opening of the Congress is, therefore, ad.
journed to the st of November, and the undersigned
Licnipotentiarics flatter themselves that the labours to
which this interval will be devoted, in fixing the ideas and
coneliating opinions, will essentially advance the great
vbject, waich is the objcet of their common mission.”
On the above subject the following important article also
reached us this morning, through the medium ef a Dutch
und Piussel Mai!:—
‘henna, Ot. 10, ~-Tt has transpired that the Prince
vf Beacvente has presented a Note, in which he protests
avainst the ug randisement tha€ scems te be intended for
several Pow Crs
that b'vamce, not to hinder the restoration
of Peace, has fuillered her frontiers to be reduced to their
stare in 1792,
‘that, (hercfore, if she is not tobe exposed to powerful
neighbours, they must also agree to the reeestablisbinent
of their fronticrs, asin that same year, as a basis of the
negociations ;—'That France would not, in any case, ope
pose these agerandisements by force, or do any thing to
(reuble dhe peace; but that it would be obliged to refuse
(o recogivise such increase to the pussessivos of the neigh.

Oct. 17.—Paris Papers to the 14th inst. arrived yes
terday. ‘The accounts of the Patristic insurrection ia
Spaiu are conficmed ; and resistance becomes every day
more determined against the icfatuated Ferdiuand and the
bigotted Pope, whosedark and tyrannical procecdings, if
tamecly tolerated, might lead to the mortifying conclusion
that theeflorts of lngland and of Hurope bad mainly en.
ded in the success of those aceursed measures, tlie re-estae
Llishmeut of the Inquisition and che restoration of the Je.
sults. According to an article from Pampeluna, the Pa.
(rivtic Mina has actually made an attempt upon that for.
tress, and though in this instance he has proved unsuccese
ful, sufficient is admited to shew that the most serious ap.
prehensions are catertuined with respect to the future ope.
radions of that enterprizing Chieftain. His present daring
eaploits are stated to be only a ramification of a plan ef
insurrection which embraces several of the pruvinces ; and
vigorous hustility sceins determined upon against a Gow
verament which has perfidieusly overthrown the liberties
ofits Ceuntry, purchased at the high price of the blood
and treasure of Great Briiain, and the most heroic sacrie
lices and trying privations of the people of Spain, Any
thing of a general eflort against such a Government cane
uot reasonably be expected to fail of success ; nor can the
honest patriotic heart be otherwise animated, than by a
sincere wish for the prompt accomplishment of so god-like
hauobject. With respect to the bigotted Pope, we are ree
juiced (u find that he is likely to experience sore disap.
pointment alone in all his endeavours te have his dark
example followed in fercign countries. Already has Ause
(ria most virtuously refused to comply with any of his re.
quests; and there isevery reason to hope that a similar en.
lightened spirit will in this respect be fuund to actuate all,
the other powers of the Continent.-—The intelligence frous
Vienna (contained in the Papers which arrived en Satur.
day,) gives reason to believe the aflairs of the Congress, in
which the Foreign Powers are chiefly interested, will soon
he dispatched, and that the matters touching the internaq
regulations ef Germany will be left to the adjustment of
a minor Parliament of German Princes. The Ministers of
Austria, Russia, Prussia, England, and Spain, had a pres
paratory conferrence on the 30th Sept. On the formal
opening, Miuisters from Sweden and Pourtugal would, it
was supposed, be admitted. ‘The Crown Prince, accords
ing te amarticle from Berlis, was vet invited te Viewna
View original with the other Sovercigns; and an interest for the son of
the late King of Sweden is again intimated.—It is suppos-
ed the grand political affairs of urope only will be settled
at the General Congress, and that those of Germany will
be afterwards separatcly adjusted. The offairs of Poland
aud Saxony, it is presumed, are those that will be attended
with the greatest dificully. Another article under the
head of V.enna, iu the Paris Papers, alleged to have been
eopicd from a paper published on the Banks of the Rhine,
detai!s some of the general principles which the several
Pewers mean to adopt as forming in future a part of the
law of nations. Itstates, that France and Russia are to
stipulate, in the name of humavity—we presume the hu-
manity that defends the Slave Trade—that neutral com-
merce shall not be plundered in future in time of war, and
that war shall not be declared without a previous notice,
and even a specific time for negociation ; that it is also
meant to reduce the standing armies of the European Pow-
s one half, aud that the gradual abolition of the Slave
rade will also form a part of the gencral compact. The
greater part of this article is so decidedly directed against
England, and agrees so much with the policy of France,
wedo not hesitate to pronounce it of French manufactur.
That France will iaterfere in every mode that ingenuity
can devise to recover Some portion of her lost iniluence,
that she will even endeavour to obtaina high and imposing
characier among the nations, by talking of rights and jus.
tice, and independence, the talents of Talley rand, and the
natural policy of France, have no roomtodoubt. If her
interferrence is dangerous we know but one way of per-
manently checking it. It can only be effected by adher-
ing to those priniples of justice and moderation, which were
read with pleasure in the declarations of the Allicd Sove-
reigns. Du justice to all the States, small as well as great,
which make up the common-wealth of Europe, aad you
will deprive [’rance of the pewer aud pretence of inter-
meddling with other States; you wiilmake various nations
centend, and French intrigue and French dictation will,
fora long time, cease to disturd the workd.—The French
Government anxious (0 relieve itself from the suspicien of
sanctiening articles of the nature of that now before us,
has caused a short grasph to be inserted in the Moniteur,
#tating that “*forcign jouruals and some persons in France
do not form an exact notion of the nature and character
of the French Journals—that the Monileur is theonly of.
ficial jourgal.”? It is certainly true that the Moniteur is
the only vehicle in which decrees and other acts of the
Government are orginally published ; it is no less certain
that there are Official Cencors for all the Journals of France
to whom every article inserted is tirst submitted ; and hence
Wwe must continue to censider the Government responsible
for the acts of the Journals which obviously in this respect
ebtaia the previous sanction and approbation of its agents.
Brussels, Oct. 1.—Animportant Decree relative to th :
Press has just beco published, abrogating all the Frencl
Jaws on that subject. Every one is responsible for what
he writes and publishes, for what be prints, sells, and dis-
tributes: the printce alone is responsible if the author is
wnkuown, Every thing printed te have the name of the
author, the Priuter, the date, and place of publication,
The property of a work ss in the author, his widow,
and heirs for their lives. An orginal M.S. in the hands
ofa stranger cannot be printed during the lives of the au-
thor, bis widow, aud heirs. All printed editions, printed
pa Belgium, or introduced from ab oad, tv be confiscated
fer the profit of the author, and a fine of the value of 309
Oct. 8.— Weare extremely pleased here with the Decree
ef the Prince Sover ign, increasing the salaries of the Ca.
thelic Clergy in Belgium. Baron Capellan, the Secretary
wf State sets out to-iaorrew for Paris, where he will make
m short stay, and then return to Holland, to go out as
Governer of Batavia.
By the last accounts from Ghent, it appears, that the
Jateeveutsia North America have madea very deep impres-
@ion on the American Negociators. After a short ab-
@ense, they are returned to Ghent, and expect with impa.
tience instructions from their Government, which will pro-
bably decide the fate of the negociations.
From th¢ French frontiers we hear, that the spirit of
discontent which has prevailed in the French army is by
me meade appeased, A vast uumber ef soldicis, aceustum.
View original ed te the licence ef war, cannot accommodate themselves
to a state of peace. It is remarked, however, with plea-
sure, that the most violent of the Odicers are placed upon
half-pay, or arc pensioned ; and the most mutinous of the
soldiers choseu for the service of the colonics. It is thougt
very probable that there is a party in France disposed to
go to war to recover the left bank of ths Khine; but the
Irench Monarch is too just and too moderate not to dis-
appoint such criminal project.
It is known that a Russian army of above 30,000 men,
under General Benningsen, is still in and about Hamburg.
We learn from good authority, that in case France should
unexpectly shew a disposition to oppose the arrangements
which the Allied Monarchs intend to make for the repose
of lsurope, this Russian army is destined to be placed on
our freutiers. These energetic measures, added to those
which are taken here in our country, are calculated to
(ranquillizing the most desponding, who might still fear the
ambition of the French army. On the least appearance
of danger eur country would be covered by 150,000 cho.
sen troops.
Calais, Sept. 29.—The monument to beerected in com.
memoration of the landing of His Majesty at this port, on
his auspicious restoration, will be of marble, 30 feet high,
of the Doric order, crowucd with a globe, bearing the
fleur de lis.
Many Calaisians think a bust of his Majesty would be
better. The pedestal will record the happy occcasion
which caused its erection, M. Ilobque, of this town, is
the architect. ‘The spot on which the Kiig first’ put his
footon French ground, is deeply cut ia ihe rock, and the
Shape of the foot will be incrasted in brouze: it ts close to

Vienna, Sept. 22.—The following letters have been ad-
dressed by the Emperor to the Princes of Schwarzenberg
and of Metternich :—
66 My dear Prince Scheartzenberg!—Tnu transmitting to
you a certain number of crosses for military decoration,
formed with the metal ef the cannon (akea fromthe cnemy,
for the honorary reward of those warriors of my army who
participated in the glorious events of 1813 and 1814, I
charge you to renew, on this occasion, to my arniy, the
assurance of my grateful sense of the mu'tiplied proofs of
bravery, constancy, and devotion, which they have given
in these campaigns, which will form onc of the most bril-
tant epochs in our military annals. I trust these dis-
uincuions wt}! serve always to recall to the army, the im-
por(ant duties which they have so well fulfilled—and that,
iu the very bosom of peace, they will continue to practise
the military virtues,
**Desirous, also, to afford you a distinguished proof of
my estimation of your very transcendaat merits in the
course of the late war, I transmit te you, in addition to
the metal cross, one fermed like it of pure gold, and which
[ authorize you alone te wear, pendant from the neck.
(Signed) MPRANCIS.”
‘‘My dear Prince de Metternich—In creating a civil
decoration in memory of the events of this and the last year,
my object is to recompense, henorarily, services rendered
jn one of the most important epochs of modern history.
I desire to recompense, in a particular manner, the ability
and the geal with which you have contributed to re.
the inquiry of the Commission as to the different indivi-|
establish order and justice, in the social state. Tending
duals entitled to the Czui Cross of Honor, I transmit to
you the first cross in gold, and which you alone are autho-
rized to wear pendant from the neck, with the decorative
ribbon, as a mark of singular distinction.
(Signed ) “FRANCIS.”
