Napoleon, Emperor of the French;
We have decreed, and decree as follows :—
Art. 1. From the date of the present Decree, the
Slave Trade is abolished.
No expedition shall be sent out to carry on this.

2. There shall not be iatroduced to be sold in out

punished by the confiscation of the ship and cargo,
which shall be pronounced by our courts and tribu-
4: Nevertheless the Merchants who may previous

A boat is come in from Ostend with a Messenger,
announcing the arrival at Brussels of 40,000 Pras-

It is evident that the Tyrant expects an carly at-
tack on the side of Flanders. He has sent Ney to ine
spect and command the army in that directioa ; ani
froin ths extensive pneparations of (he Allies we may
shortly expect to hear of an important blow caving

The Journal de Paris centains some observations
on the Declaration of the Allied Pewers, the general
tendency of which is to convince Europe that there is
no cause whatever for war; or even for alarm; for
that France, however, degrading the Treaty of Paris
may have been to her, is willing to maintain if
with good faith * In a word, that nothing is changed
in France but the Ruler,—Fouche has addressed a
circular letter to the Prefects, in which is audaciously
i states, that the Government of the Bourbons was

London, April 10.
A Messenger from Paris arrived at Lord Castle-
reagh’s Office on Saturday, with dispatches from the
French Government, which are understood to con-
fain a formal overture of Peace to this country. Lord
‘astlercagh inimediately laid them before the Prince
Regent, an! they aftcrwards became the subject of
«long deliberation in the Cabinet. The answer to
this overture will readily be anticipated. Our Go-
vernment, on such an Ocersion, can act only in con-
cert with our Allies, none of whom, we believe, will
be much inclined to respect the professions of a man
who bas never kept faith with any Power, and who,
having just violated a Treaty sulemaly entered into
with the whole of them, modestly recommend him-

Wr WILLIAM, by the Grace of GOD, King
of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange Nassau,
Duke ef Luxemburg, &e. &e. &e.
TO all to whom these presents shall come, Greeting !
The unanimous will of the Powers assembled at
the Congress at Vienna declared for the union of all
the Netherlands under the same common Govern-
ment, and (he inhabitants of the Belvic provinces
testificd to us in the most lively manner their joy at
this important event, and their desire that the Sover-
eign power might be extended tu them, which the
love of the Dutch bad given to us.
Deeply moved by these ex pressions of their wish-
es, we had, however, resolved to defer al] changes in
the existing arrangements, (ill the Uelibefations of
the Congress should be wholly ended, and (ill its ree
solutions should be published entire. “Bat the unex.
pected dfenls which have taken plaice in a neigh-
bouring kingdom jaduce us to alter our Intentions,
‘They make it necessary to answer the geal of of our
stubyects with equal zeal and to leave pone of them in
uncertainty concerning their duties and our inten-
lions. It is now thatuew difficulties Seem to arise in
prospect, it is at the moment when the sa.J recollect.
ton of foreign domination is revived in (he ininds of
so inany peuple, that it becomes more im
necessary to establish a kingdom whieh the»

ine noble love of civil liberty and j
which distinguish the character of the
Netheslands, suil stronger by the
which we daily receive, we take the sceptre with no
other objeet than that of makins our Governmer €
subservient to the goud of these who are sub;
and to secure to them the uadisturbed e
all the blessings of concurdeand peace,
And we desire, that even the the naine
shatt be a pledyee of the close and pa

1 declare by these presents, that all the countries
belonging to it, traw h neefurward the hinedom of
the Netherlands, which shail be possess-d by us and
vur lawlul descendants, according to the order of
primogeniture, and thal we assume for ourself and
vill sucecesors on the thion-, the Royal title and div=
nity, adding to our tile Ghat of Duke of Luxemburg
un account OF Lhe special connection which thot prose
vince js desuncd to maintain with Germany.
But however these resolutions are conformable to
what we owe tu the catcnt of the Netherl ids, and
to their numcrous and industyigus inhabitants, we
think ourself equally obliged to provile, that the
name which we have born with honor ander all the
vicissitudes of fortune, and under which our ances
(ors have perlormed such manifold services iu the
cause of treeduin, shall not be abolished. We there-
tore decree, that henceforth the Heir Apparent of
the Ningdoim ot the Netherlands shall assuwe, bear
and keep the title of Prince of Orange, giving it im-
mediately herewith tv our beloved eldest sun, with
the more cordial satisfaction, es we are convinced
that he will maintain it in ils antient splendour, by
ine strict pertormance of his dutics, as our first sub-
ject, and as future Sovereign of the new State, and
thathe will atall times watch with courage and self
denial for the rights of his House, and for the secu-
rity of the peaceful and hospitable territory of the
Netherlands. You all my fellowcountrymen, who
inhabit this terrilory, open your hearts to confilence
and hope, The constituent parts of political hap-
piness are all in your own power, Be attached to
your country, in harmony with each other and free
trom jealousy, and you will be strong enough to av-
ertall the dangets that may threaten you. Europe
looks upon your union with interest and affection.
The Constitution which is already obligatory upon
t great proportion of you shall be subjected, as soon
as possible, to the regulations which may adopt it to
the wants and the wishes of all, and you shall find in
‘it the guarantee of your religion, upon which we all
set the higbest value. Useful institutions, under (he
blessings of the Almighty, shall promoie the free de-
velopement of all kinds of national industry, aud the
revival of your long celebrated arts and of your feel-
ings and your efforts answer to those which, on this
solemn day, your King consecratcs to you irrevoca!-
ly, and‘rom the bottom of his heart ; the prosperity
which falls to your lot shall remain (o distant azes
the inheritance of a grateful posterity.

Berea the supposed track of the enemy, and what
isa little singular, at the very instant of arriving at
that poiut, an hour before day-light, Sanday-Hook
bearing W.N.W. 15 leazues, we were made haony
by the sight ofa ship and brig standing to the south-
ward and eastward, and not more than two miles on
the AMajestic’s weather bow: the night signal for a
ceneral chace was nade, and promptly obeyed by all
he ships.
In the course of the day, the chace became extre-
mety interesting by the cmleavours of the enemy: to
scape, and the exertions vf tke Captains to get their
respective ships alongside of him, the former by cat-
ing away his anchors, and throwing overboard every
Sreabie article, with a great quan tity of provisions,
iad the latter by trimming their ships in every way
possibletocifect their purpose. As theday advanced,
the wind decliacd, giving the Endymion an cvident
advaniage in sailing; and Cap. Hope's exertions
enabled him to get ble ship alengside of the enemy,
and commence close action at half past five o'clock in
ine evening, which was continued with great es tian-
try and spiril qa both sides, fortwo kours anda hal,
when the Endmicn’s sails being cut from the van's,
