FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. Downing street, March 29. A Letter of which the following are extracts, has been this clay received at Earl Bathurst's Of- fice, addressed to his Lordship by Col. Hamil- tot), Lieut.-Governor of Haligoland, dated 22d March 1813. In my letter dated 17th inst. I had the honour to represent to your Lordship, that in conse- qticHeeof the effect which the glorious success of the Russian arms produced, and the fa- vourable reports from different parts of the Hanoverian coast, I determined immediately to take every step which the inconsiderable force at my disposal would admit of, to pro. mole the great anijiist cause. Lieutenant Banks proceeded with two gun- atid reinforced by two serjeants and thirty veterans, to Cuxhaven, from which the French had departed with great expedition, afle.r des: royng all lheir gun, ùoats, and dis- counting the guns from the strong works constructed fur the defence of the harbour. On a summons from Lieut. Banks, the Castle of Ri'ebu!tel, and batteries at Cuxhaven, were surrendered to be at the disposal of his Majesty by the Burghers; and the British and Hamburgh flags were immediately displayed. Major Kentzinger, an Officer perfectly qua. Tified for such a mission, was sent to Cuxha- ven, having received instructions to commu- nicate as soon as possible with the Russian General, and the Senate of Hamburgh and this Officer was followed by a detachment from the 8th Royal Veteran Battalion, and a supplv ot'.ili the arms, &c. which were not y employed by this garrison. The loyal people* of Hanover, who have been so long oppressed, display every where the British colours, and G. It. upon their ha Dilations: fit the Weser, the inhabitants of that part of the country-assembled -in consi de:\tbIt numbers, and took the strong and important battery and works at Bremerlee and a corps of about fifteen hundred French Laving assembled in its vicinity, which threat- ened to re;,ike the battery, application was made immediately to Major Kentzinger for assistance, who having left < tixiiaveii with a party of the soldiers in waggons, was met by these brave and grateful men, who gave him the pleasing intelligence that the enemy had marched off in great haste, in consequence of the landing of the British troops, which were reported to alliOLI-t to a coiis Iderable number. Baron de Feltenborn, Colonel Commandant of a corps of that division of the Russian ar my, commanded by Count Wittgenstein, en- tered Hamburgh oil the IStli itist. aiiiidst the acclamations and every demonstration of joy on the part of the Cilizeiis inconsequence of this happy event, the ancient Government has been restored, and a mati for England is now dispatched from this rity. Admiralty Office. March 30. Copies of two letters from Lieutenant Francis Banks, commanding" his Majesty's gun-vessel the Blazer, to J W. Croker, Esq. dated off Cuxhaven, the 16th and 17th inst. > Blazer, at anchor off Cuxhaven, March 16. Sm,—I beg to inform you, for the informa- tion of the Lords Commissioners of the Ad- miralty, that from the intelligence communi- cated to me by the Lieutenant Governor of Heligoland, and what 1 otherwise learned by the arrival of vessels from the Continent, of the digressed state of the Frencit forces at Cuxhaven, and of the entrance of a Russian army into Hamburgh, I judged it expedient to take the Bredageren under my orders, and- proceed to the river Elbe, which I entered early this morning, with the hope of inter- ceding such of the enemy's vessels as might attempt to make their escape; two of the o-nn vessels we found deserted in the entrance of this river, and were afterwards destroyed OIl a nearer approach to this place, I observed some were others were sunk and drilling about in all directions; and I have the satisfaction to inform JOII of the total de siruction of the French flotilla that was sta. tioned at Cuxhaven, which were 20 large-gun schuyts the timely appearance of his Majes- ty's brig prevented the escape of two, and I fir iy believe led to the destruction of the resi by their own hands. The HamlJurgh flag is displayed on the batteries and castle of Hilz- buitel, and 1 intend to gain a communication with the sliore.-I am, &c. (Signed) F. BANKS. Blazer, at anchor off Cuxhaven, March 17, 1813. Sm,-1 beg leave to acquaint you, for the information of my Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, that having bad communica- tion with the Civil Authorities of Ritzbuttel, they expressed a desire that I would lake pos- session of the batteries that had been lately evacuated by the French. I accordingly this morning disembarked the small detachment of thirty two of the Royal Ve cran Battalion, from Heligoland, and took possession of Cux- haven battery. Fort Napoleon, which is half tili the river, I sliall I destroyed. Ever): iiiiii- iii these forts ale in disorder, the guns dismounted, the carriages and stores destroyed. From what 1 have been able to observe this day, all is anarchy and confusion among the inhabitants, but they rejoice much at a tew English being landed. Nu senate as yet is formed at Hamburgh, nor do I hear of the Russian Army having entered that city whenever that can he ascertained, I shall communicate the event to the Com- manding Officer here. The French withdrew from this place yes- terday morning at five o'clock their collec- tive force was about 1200 they made their retreat by Bcd'rkesa to Bremen. I cil, lose a copy of the articles concluded on beiweet) the Civil Authorities and myself- 1 snail forward a list of military and other stores the moment I am able, I have the honour to be. &c. (Signed) F. BANKS. Articles concluded between the Civil Authorities of liitzbutiel and Lieutenant F. Banks, com- manding his Majesty's forces in the river Elhe. The Hamburg flag shall be hoisted, in conjunc- tion with the British, at the French batteries near Cuxhaven, until his Britannic Majesty's pleasure is known. All military aud other stores belonging to the French shall be delivered up to the English. The British troops shall take immediate pos- session of the batteries, and garrison the same. Executed on board his Majesty's brig Blazer, this 11th March, 1813. II. M. brig- Brevdageren, River Ilbe, March 2-1, 1813. SIR-Agreeahly to your arrangement, I proceeded with the galley of the Brevdageren and cutter of the Blazer, in search of the Da- nish privateer said to infest the upper part of the river. At day light this morning we dis- covered two galliots, which were at first sup- posed to be merchant vessels but on ap- proaching them they hailed, and instantly opened a fire. In this critical situation there was no safely but in resolutely boarding, and 1 took advantage of the cheerful readiness of our people. We carried them under thesmoke of their second discharge, without the loss of a man, and only two wounded on the part of the enemy the galley hoarding the first, and the Blazer's cutter, in Ihe most gallant man- ner, the second. They proved to he the Da- nish gun-boats Die Junge Trourman, com- manded by Lieut. Letkin, and Die Liebe, Lieut. Wrítl" each mounting two long 18- pounders, and three 12-poundcrs carronades, with a complement of 25 men each. When you consider that each of these for- midable vessels was carried by a single boat, one by a culler with 12 men, and the other by a galley with nine, the conduct of the brave fellows- under my orders need no comment and i beg to return my sincere thanks to them and to Mr. Dunbar, the Master of the Blazer. These two vessels were sent, three days ago, from Gluckstadt, for the express purpose of intercepting the trade from Heligoland- i beg you to report the above proceedings to the Commander in Chief, who. i trusi, will approve of my conduct on this occasion. I have the honour to be, &e. THOMAS BARKER DEVON. Lieut. and Commander. Lieut. Banks, his Majesty's gun-vessel Blazer.
AFRICAN INS 1 ITUTION. Last week, the Annual Meeting of the Mem- bers of the African Institution, was held in the Free Mason's-tavern, in Queen-street.— William Wilberforce, Esq. M. P. in the chair. Mr. Harrison proceeded to read the Report of the Directors appointed annually for the ma nagement of the Institution. They had consi- derable apprehensions of the continuance of the illegal traffic, notwithstanding the Parliamentary enactment of last Sessions, and the unparalleled vigilance of the British Naval Commanders sta- tioned along the coast of Africa. They had re- ceived intelligence that from the one extremity of the African slave coast, to the other, only one vessel had been actually employed in the barter for slaves, and that vessel sailed under the co- lours of Portugal. Commodore Irhv, an officer whose courage, intrepidity, and unbounded affec- tion for the whole human race, entitled him to the veneration of the Directors, along with seve- ral other excellent Officers, hadcaptured various vessels employed in the illegal management of that detestable and heinous traffic, and had sent them into Sierra Leone for condemnation, which occasioned several appeals to be made against the decision of the Vice Admiralty Court in that quarter. A large portion of that pernicious trade appeared to be carried on by the people of Portugal Spain had refrained from extensive participation for although vessels had carried it on under the colours of Spain, several of them were found, on condemnation, to belong to Eng- land, and one of them actually had Liverpool papers secreted on board. The Act of Parlia- ment declaring the barter of slaves felony, had considerably promoted the suppression of the trade and a planter of the name of Saml. Sabs, under the jurisdiction of Governor Maxwell, had been prosecuted for violating it, though he was afterwards pardoned on the earnest intercession of many of his friends, who all agreed to re- nounce the continuance of the traffic in future. Three vessels, called the Clare, Out-industry, and the Prudent, hyd all fieen captured and con- demned for carrying Oil the traffic in slaves. The Clare was found with 126 negroes, of both sexes and of tender jears, on hoard, ail crowded pro- miscuously together, in a place constructed so secret as to conceal them from the observation of an ordinary examiner but the British sailor who discovered them, though he was offered 200 dollars to permit thein to pass, refused it with disdain, and caused the vessel to be detained as a prize. A few days after the detention of the vessel, one of the crew discovered a negro boy concealed in an aperture, where he was kept for (he purpose of taking him on shore at a favour- able opportunity, and prevented from bewailing his situation, by the intimation that he would be killed by the captors as soon as he was found. The Industry, though her register burden was only seventy tons, had contrived to conceal one hundred and eighty negroes on board, and the Prudent, with a cargo of bullocks, had 20 human beings secluded from fresh air in a kind of cell under the cattle They weie sent into Mada- gascar, to be condemned and against the deci- sion of the Couit, appeals were to be made, they understood, at home. A traffic of the like nature had also been discovered to exist between Egypt and Malta, and the British Government had ordered an inquiry into the circumstances.— Intelligence had atso been received, though not officially, that the people of Chili had adopted the same humane regulations. On the whole, concerning Spain and Portugal, the Directors did not despair of finally triumphing over all the inclination manifested by those nations, of car- rying oil that trade, which contaminated every Government that permitted it. The Directors were also desirous that his Majesty's Govern ment. should in all future keep the abolition of the Slave Trade in their mind, and they conceived that arrangements might he made with Denmark, to banish it from the colonies of that country. They learned with much sorrow that the condition of slaves in the Isle of France was wretched in the extreme, and that the con- (ilict of the French part of the population towards these miserable beings, was cruel aud unjust. They were badly lodged, badly clad, and worse fed, and 200of them sometimes were seen chain- ed together, and harnessed like mules, for the purpose of drawing carts loaded with baggage.and oftentimes dung. The introduction of draft oxen "had been recommended. They contemplated with deep regret the flagrant abuses prevalent, in the West Indies, and conceived that the dangerous lessons of Huggins were not yet obliterated. The adoption of a register for slaves in some of the islands had been attended with good consequenc- es, and deserved to be extended over all the West Indies. John Wylet, the free negro of St. Vincent's, who had been reduced again to a state of slavery, was restored once more, they were assured, to the bosom of his family, in a state of freedom, and measures bad been adopted for rhe redress of several other cases of individual hardship. From a Gentleman of the Bahamas, they had received important information, which would be of infinite service in the operation of the Slave Acts. On the continent of Africa, they were positive the traffic would soon altogether cease, could they prevail with the Portuguese and Spaniards to abstain from continuing it. Go- ¡ vernor Maxwell, with his customary humanity and vigilance, had carried the law completely into effect, which made slave barter felony, wherever he had jurisdiction; and the copper which belonged to the condemne.d vessels was to be conveyed to Britain, where it would be ma- nufactured into tokens with appropriate devices, and then returned to that part again for the pur- pose of being circulated. They lamented the un- happy murder of General Meredith, on the Gold Com!, which happened in the followieg manner; —The natives, conceiving that he had concealed large quantities of gold, lay in waft for him, and sarounded him while he was walking in his garden, carried him into the interior; they compelled him to walk barefoot along the dry grass, which was set on fire beside him after having tortured him for several days, nature sunk under their brutalities and he expired. Commodore Irby immediately destroyed their town without shed- ding any blood. This atrocious transaction was altogether unconnected wit h the, lave trade. The Portuguese slave trade had been supported by the Canoes on the Gold Coast, and the Govern- ors, conceiving that to be a violation of the Act, had ordered it to. be discontinued. Captain Paul Cuffee, an enterprising American, of extensive information and singular benevoience, had volun- teered to further the cause of humanity and free- dom among the Africans, and applications had bet a made to Government to permit him to settle. Pecuniary assistance had likewise been afforded to learned men whose writings had a tendency to open the eyes of 11le world to the iniquitous traffic in human flesh. The meeting thanked Mr. Wilberforce for his conduct in the chair, and a resolution was read at the last meeting, ordering a present of plate w/h'he Ihffiks of the institution, to he made to Mr. IViacairev, their late Secretary.—Mr." Macau- ley r £ iurneu thauke 0 ihe meeting in a very ap- propriateand elegant speech.—The meeting then aljourned.
POLITICAL HiMMARY- Tnr NORTH.'—OUR advices of the opera- tions of the Russians are as late as the 2ls! olt from the right wing oi tiior army, ex. tending to the inoulh of Ihe Eihe and their successes are perhaps more rapid, and more important ¡han any ilrng recorded in the mili- tary history of mankind, It seTns as if the forlunes of Buonaparte \vere lo be similar to those of Edward til, of this, or Lews XIV. of that country, and that his defeats and dis- appointments iu Ihe latter part of his reign, were to be only equalled by his victories and triumphs in the earlier portion of it. The most recent accounts place the centre of the j armies of Alexander at Berlin, the left wing J at Dresden, and the right at the station we have named, extending through a line of about 350 (riles, and fears have been expressed, that from the precipitation of their progress, they will he endangered by the artifices of their active enemy. In this view, it is an impor- tant consideration, that all the accounts agree in, the perfect co-operation of the people into whose territories they have penetrated, so thai their weight aud force, instead of being frit- tered away, accumulates as they proceed, and will, we trust, continue to augment till it crush beneath its pouderoasbtilk tbeir haughl y and atrocious opponent. PLIVIIVSVLA,-Tlic accounts from Spain, in the-southern districts, are lo Ihe 10th of last rrtonih, and Ihere a material change has taken place in the councils of the nation. It seems that, the Regency did not fillfil the mandates of (lie august assembly of the Cortes, in pub- lishing through the proper channels the abo- lition of the horriifc tribunal of the Inquisi- tion, and this, among other causes, occasioned the degradation of the Members, and the Su- preme Executive Authority is entrusted to a near relation of the latc Kin, the Cardinal Archbishop of Toledo, with two companions in office. By one of those singular vicissitudes which distinguish the present extraordinary times, this majestic Chief of the Church of Spain, this Grand inquisitor, is himself made the instrument of the destruction of the dark court in which he has presided, and he has himself, under his own signature, issued an order, by which all the clergy of the kingdom are commanded to proclaim in their respective parishes, before the altar of God, the fall of this loffy monument of ecclesiastical oppres- sion. The railifary events in Spain either as related from the south, or uuder later dates from the north of Spain, are wholly uninle- resling. It is now perfectly understood by Lord Wellington, in concurrence with the opinion of his Court here, that under the present circumstances of the North of Europe, it is more prudent to allow the French to weaken themselves by expanding their force over the mountains of the eastern kingdom of the Peninsula, than to permit them to con- cetilrate themselves b) driving ihetn wltbin the boundary of the Ebro. in this situation of things we are, we believe, correctly informed, thai Ihe war will linger in that country, and that the campaign, if campaign it may be called, will not open until May, and that after that period. the British Commander will al. most wholly confine his operations to the defence of Portugal, and the fortresses of Ba. 6 dajoz and Ciudad Rodrigo in its immediate vicinity* BRITISH PARLIAMENT.—In Parliament a new scheme of Finance has been develloped, under which a portion of the Sinking Fund is to be diverted from the grand purpose of the L. reduction of the National Debt, a scheme of I relief to the public burthens of which the late Mr. Pitt has the merit, and which is perhaps- the most ingenious contrivance of human wis- dom to prevent the dilapidation and ruin which the fundmg system almost necessarily involves. Some progress has been made in the -i -j- •. ( L Inquiry on the Catholic Claims, and Mr. Grat. tan has given notice, that as soon as the Easter recess has terminated, he shall submit his Bill to the consideration of the House. The grand question on the East India Monopoly has also been entered upon, and by the expedient of the Commons to commence the examination of witnesses at the bar at an early hour, and the condescension of the Lords to pursue their inquiry by testimony in a Select Committee. we may indulge the expectation that an early decision maybe obtained, notwithstanding the magnitude of the interests, and the solicitude of the parties.
