FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. Admiralty-Office, May 29. H. M. sToopfLyra, "ff Bermeo, May 13. SIR—In my letter of 'he 4th mst. 1 inform- ed you of my arrival off Castro, in company -with his Majesty's sloops Royalist and Spar row, and that the enemy having been twice repulsed hefore the wans of Castro, had again invested it the 25th April, with increased forces, and of the measures taken by the squa- dron to assist in its defence; I have now the honour to communicate to you oursubsequenf operations. On the 5th and 6th no material movement took place. The enemy were in such numbers in the surrounding villages, that the garrison did not make atiolher sortie after the 4th.— We perceived them making fascines in the woods. On Ihe 71h we discovered that they were throwing up a battery to the westward of the town. A 24-pounder was landed with gi<?st difficulty from the Sparrow,on a small Island wi:hin point blank shot of it, and a battery ere; ted, which IJY ;reat exertion was nearly ready tor its reception on the following morn i-ng, at which time theenemy commenced their fire from two 12 pounders against it, which was briskly returned by Ili castle, and about three in the afternoon by our 24-pounder, and with such effect, that t)lie of their embrassure* was rendered perfectly untenable before night, T'e enemy were discovered also constructing a targe battery to the sonth west of the town, viihio one hundred yards cf the will, (iiider cover f a large house, and against which the gLII, of the castle could not he brought to bear. A hvnir brass 12-pounder was mounted on the castle, by the assistance of our people, I)ijl it unfortunately burst after having been fired < few times. The v-hole of the 9th a heavy fire wask ptup on bolh sides, andevery exertion made to strengthen the defences.— The most determined spirit of resistance ani mated the Governor, Don P. P Alvarez, and every officer atiki soldier under his command. and the enemy had received signal proofs of their perseverance and courage in the two preceding attacks. We could see troops ap- proaching in every direction, and we received infelJigt-nce thaf besides the artillery they had received from Sanfonee before our arrival, they had also several guns embarked at Por tfigaltie. 1 therefore took every precaution to prevent their conveyance by sea, by sending at one time the Sparrow off that port, and at another the Royalist, and keeping a strict guard of boats by night. On the 10th the enemy commenced throwing shells from a battely they had constructed to the south-east j of the town, with great effect they were also busilv employed in erecting two other batte- ries, one to the snnihwMid of the town, and the other to flank our works on the islititl. They also sent a slrong body of men behind the rocks to annoy our people with musketry but they were soon dislodged hy the fire of a four-pounder on the island, and two compa nies of Spanish troops. A battery f< r another 24-pounder was begun by Captain Taylor 'or, the island, flanking the enemy's principal baffery, and the gun mounted and ready for firing at day light on the 11th. The enemy at the same moment opened a heavy fire from their south-west battery with such effect, thai notwithstanding the brisk manner in winch it was returned from our nder carronade, iro-unted on the castle, toe troops or. the walls, and our battery oir the island, they had made a breach large enough to admit twenty men abreast before noon. The euemy were now advancing towards the town in immense num- bers and as our posit,iou in the island was not tenable in the event of their storming, I i directed Captain Taylor, of the Sparrow, who 11ad unùert,1kell themallaement of it, to re embark the guns and men, and made the ne- cessary-ttrrangemeuts with the Governor to embark the garrison, after having destroyed the gllllS and blown up the castle. The enemy having destroyed the walls, turned their guns on the town and castle, throwing shells luces santly at the bridge connecting the castle with the landing place, endeavouring lo cut off the retreat of the garrison about nine p. m. at least three thousand men rushed at once into the town from every quarter, not only hy the breaches, but also by scaling. They were most gallantly resisted by the garrison, who disputed the town, house by house, until they were overwhelmed by numbers and obliged to retreat to the castle the ship's boats and launches were in readiness to receive them, and they were embarked hy companies, under a tremendous fire of musketry,and distributed to the three bris àlHLAlphea sehooner, extent I i,o companies which remained to defend the castle. until the tlIJS, &e. were destroyed. The enemy advanced to the castle, but were successfully resisted, until every gun was thrown into the sea but they unfortunately gained the inner wall before the train for hlowing up the rastle was set on fire, incon- sequence of which that part of "ny wlshe was frustrated. I have, however, the pleasure to say, ti,al every soldier was brought off, and many of the inhabitants. The town was set on fire in many places, and must, I think, have been entirely destroyed. As soon as everv tiling was the squadron weighed and proceeded to Bermeo, where the troops were landed yesterday morning Çaptain Bloye then speaks in the highest terifls of praise of the fatiguing but cheerful exertions of every officer and man employed. Of the Governor, Don P. P. Alvarez, and the garrison, which consisted of 1200 men, he makes honourable mention; a Iso of Captains Bremen, Taylor, and Lieutenant Kentish, ot the Royalist, who was slightly wounded in the leg, as was Mr. Sutton, Midshipman of the same ship, whilst embarking the garrison. The intrepidity and good conduct of this young officer is highly praised, but we are sorry to observe, that the amputation of his leg has been found necessary. Captain Bloye says, that he has reason to believe frum the intelligence lie has received, that the cnemv ban not les, than 13,000 men before Castro, which bad been collected from every post in the province. Their loss was very great, that of the garrison about 50 kil- led and as many wounded. The Royalis had only four wounded and the Sparrow six none killed- (Signed) R. BLOYE, Commander.

FRENCH PAPERS. Paris, May 19.—Her Majesty the Empress, Queen and Regent, iias received the followlIIg information respecting the situation of the armies on the morning of the 131ii. The fortress of Spandau has capitulated. This event astonishes all military hien. His Majesty has ordered that Gen. Bruny, the Commandant of Artillery, and Commandant. Engineer of the place, as well as the Ministers of the Council of Defence, who may no! have protested against, it, to he arrested and tried before-a. Marshal's Com- mission, presided hy the Vice-Constahle. Ifis Majesty has likewise ordered that the ca- pitulation of Thorn should be the subject of an enquiry. If ihe garrison of Spandau has surren- dered without a siege, a strong fortress surround- ed by marshes, and subscribed to a capitulation which itiust be the subject of an enquiry and a judgment,the conduct observed by the garrison of Wittenberg has been very different. General. Lapovehas perfectly well conducted himself,and supplJrted the honor of our anus in thc defence that important point, which is besides but an in- different foi tress, liaving but one inelosure, half destroyed, and which could only owe its rpslstance to the courage of its defenders. Baron de Mon- tat-ati, all Equerry lo (lie Emperor, on the Gib of May, lost his way two from Dres- den. He felt into the hands of a patrole of light Gilvalry, consisting of 30 men, and. was taken by the enemy. A new courier, sent from Vienna by M. de Staekelberg to M. de Ncsselrode, at Dres- den, has Just been intercepted. What is remark- able is this, that the dispatches are dated the 8th in the evening and that, they contain congratulations from M. de Staekelberg to the JKtnperor Alexander, upon the brilliant victory he has juht gained, and upon the retreat of the French beyond the Saale, Tile Grand Duchess Catherine has received at Toplitz, a letter from her brother, the Emperor Alexander, which informs her of this great victory on the id. The Grand Duchess with reason allowed all the persons taking the wafers of TlJplitz, to read his letter. However, t lie, follow flay she learned the Emperor Alexander had returned to Dresden, anrl that she herself must proceed to Prague. All this has appeared extremely ri- diculous in Bohemia We have secn in it the name of a Sovereign compromised, without any motive which policy could justify. All this can only be explained hut as a Russian custom, re- sulting from the necessity there is in Russia of imposing- upon an ignorant populace, and the fa- ciliiy with which they can be made to believe every thing. They should have found it neces- sary to have adopted a different conduct in such a civilized country as Germany. MayW.—u Her Majestythe Empress Queen and fiegent has received the following intelligence relative to the situation of the army oil the morn. mg of the 14th of May. Tt-.ear.ny cf the Elbe has heen dissolved: and the two armies of the Elbe and (tie Mein form only one. The Duke 01 iU'llnno was on the evening of the 13th near Wit- 'enberg. The Prince.of Moskwaha* left Torgau 10 proceed to Lukau. Count. Lauriston was march ing from Torgau on Dobreleigh. Count Her:- rand was at. Koengsbruck. The Duke of Tarel" to, with the llth corps, was encamped bet ween IJis^hofF-iwerder and Bautzen. He, on the Hth and I2'h, briskly pursued the enemy. General 'idoradovitz, with a rear-guard consisting of '0,000 men, and 40 pieces of cannon, endeavour- ed, on the 12th, to retain the positions of Fish- boeh, Oapelhenberg, and of Eischofswerder, which brought on three successive battles, in which our troops behaved with the utmost intre pidity. Charpfiitier's division distinguished it- self on tiie attack on the right. The enemy was turned in this position-and dislodged at au points; O(Je of his columns was cut off. We have laken 500 prisoners, and he had upwards of 15110 men killed or wounded. The artillery of the llth corps fired 2000 cannon shot in the engagement. The remains of the Prussian Army, under the command of the King of Prdssia, which passed at Mechzau, took hi- road to Brufzen by Kro- enigsbruck. to join the Russian my. Yester- I day at neon, the Duke of ileggio's corps passed I the bridge of Dresden. The Emperor has re- viewed the cavalry corps and line cuirassiers, under General Latour Maubourg. It is said the Russians have advised the Prussians to burn Potsdam and Berlin, and lay all waste. They I began by setting the example themselves In their gaiele de ceasur, they burnt the little town of Bisiiofswerder. Th KIng of Saxony dined with live E.nperoron the S3tli. Tire 2d division of the Young Guards, commanded by General Barrois, is expected to-morrow at Dresden." MayZl.— Her Majesty the Empress Queen and Regent has received the following information of (lie situation of the arullcs, olllhe 16'ii in the evening:—On the 15th, the Emperor and King of Saxon^ reviewed four regiments of Saxon ea- valry, (one of hussars, one of lancers, and two of ''uirassier-,) which form part of Gen, Latour Maubourg's corps. Their Majesties afterwards vi.ed file field of battle, at file Preinifz. The Duke of I'arenium pu" himself I in motion on tlw 15th, at the in the morning, to march opposite B.-tutzia. Heme- a the debouch some of the enemy's rear-guard Some charges ot cavalry were attempted against our cavalry, e' but. unsuccessfully theenemy, however, wishing to maintain himself in (his position, a n'e of musketry look place, and he was driven ;rom rlw post. We had :250 neii killed or wounded in his rear-guard alfa.r; <he euemy's loss is esti- mated at from 7 fo 800 men, of whom 200 are prisoners. The second division of the yomig guard commanded by General Barrois, arrhed a' Dresden yesterday. All he army has passed the Elbe independently of the grand bridge at Dresden, two bridges of boats have been iished, the one above, the other below the town. 31 ay 23.— Her Majesty the Empress Queen and Rerent lias receive the following accounts of the siruatiouof the armies on the ISth of May — The Empcrer was HI ill at Dresden; he has pro- posed the meeting o! a Congress at Prague for a general peace. On the side of France then would arrive a' this Congress the Plenipotentia- ries of France, 'hose of the United States of America, of Denmark, the King of Spain, and all the allied Princes and on the opposite side, • hose of England, Russia, Prussia, the Spanish insurgents, and the other allies of that bellige- rent mass, 'in this congress would be establish- ed (he basis of a long peace. But it is doubted whe'her England is inclined to submit her ego- tisiic and unjust principles to the censorship and opinion of the universe for there is no power, however inconsiderable, that does not prelimi- narily claim the privileges attached to its sove- reignty, and which are consecrated by the arti- cles. of the Treaty of Utrecht, respecting mari- time navigation. If England, from that, feeling of egotism upon which her policy is fonnded, re- fuses to co-operate in this grand work of the peace of the world, because she wishes to exclude the universe from that element which constitutes three-fourths of the globe, the Emperor, never- theless, proposes a meeting at Prague, of the Pienipoieutiaries of all the belligerent Powers, to settle the peace of the Continent. His Ma- jesty offers, even to stipulate at the moment when the Congress shall be formed, an armistice heiweeu the diifcrent armies, in order to put a stop to the effusion of human blood. Thesfl principles are conformable to the views of Aus- tria. it now remains to be seen what the Courts of England, Russia, and Prussia will do. The distance of the United States of America ought not to form a reason for excluding them. The Congress might still be and the deputies* of "the United States would have time fo arrive before the conclusions of the discussions, in order lo stipulate for their rights and their ia- terests..
HOUSE OF COMMONS,-
HOUSE OF COMMONS, WAY 24. Mr. Grattan moved, that the Roman Catholic Hellcf Bill he taken into further consideration. This was agreed to, and the House resolved itself into a-Committee accordingly. The Speaker then addressed the Committee.— He said he could not give his consent.to the Bill. What prospect was there of any concord when the themselves did not opprove of the measure ? The Heads of the Roman Catholic Church Were not satisfied with its provisions.— The Catholic Vicar-General in England had very I recently declared, that, the Clerg-y ought to lay, down their lives sooner than accede to such provisions. If they were once admitted to Par- liament, every other concession would follow. They would be tIle heads of factjon and if they were not suffered to become the coniidelltial ser- vants of the Crown, by means of their eloquence in Parliament ihey would have recourse to more violent means. They would bring forward an overwhelming force, and there would be very little chance, after ihat, of seeing the present Re presentatives of Ireland in that. House. It was evident that the spiritual jurisdiction of the Ca- tholic Church might be exercised by mere per- sonal jurisdiction coming immediately from the Pope we had lately seen I he eHècl. of it in Spain. It was necessary to make a slaild at once against such a danger, and the first stand should be against the admission of Catholics into either House of Parliament. Mr. Whitbread observed, that a difference of opinion might prevail among the Catholics as o some of the regulations of the Bill as it might affect them 'differently, but a most respectable meeting of Catholics ill the county of Cork, hiJlíl hailed the Bill as one of the greatest booili which thcir hody ceuld receive. That the Ca- tholics of the present day were as widely diffe rent from those of former-times,as light, was fro-m dark, n' t. mare in point of religion but in the feelings with which they regarded Protestants.— If the clause was to be omitted which allowed Catholics to sit in the House he conceived the whole Bill was lost. 1r. Canning was of the same opinion. The Chiiucellor of the Exchequer opposed the Bill. Lord Castlercagh thought that. the time had arrived when they might be admitted into the Constitution on principles of mutual confidence and mutual security, and that their religion as well as the State might be armed and secured with the great shield which a wise legislation could now prepare. After a considerable debate the Clause for the admission of Catholics into the Senate was lost >»y a majority of four,-the numbers for it being 247, and against it 3S-K—When the numbers were declared, the House rang with shouts of appro bafion, and the Bill was afterwards given up altogether,

Solicitude forthe Spiritual interests of our be- loved Flocks, obliges us once more to suspend the exercise of our other Pastoral Duties, ill or der to deliberate, in common, upon the present posture of our Religious Concerns. VVe hasten to declare to you, the lively feelings of gratitude excited in our breasts by the giaci- ous condescension of the Legislature in taking into its favourable consideration the Disabilities which still affect the Catholic Body. With these feelings deeply and indelibly impressed upon our heart, it is o,ill, lie utmost distress of mind, that we are compelled, by a sensc of duly, to dis- sent (in some points connected with our Eman- cipation) from the opinions of those virtuous and enlightened Statesmen, who have so long and so ably. advOlarcd the cause of Catholic freedom. Probably from a want of sufficient information but unquestionably from the most upright mo- tives, they have proposed to the Legislature the adoption of certain arrangements respecting our Ecclesiastical discipline, and particularly res- pecting-the exercise of Episcopal Inunctions, to which it would be impossible for us to assent, without incurring the guili of Sell is licil as they might, if into effect, invade the spiritual jurisdiction of our Supreme Pastor, and 1 alter an important point of our discipline, for which alteration his concurrence would upon Ca- tholic principles, be indispensably necessary, When the quarter is considered, from whence the Clauses have proceeded, it mighf perhaps lie imagined, were we to continue silent, that they had our unqualified approbation on this account we deem ita duty, which we ONe to you, to our Country, and to God to declare, m the most pub- lic manner, "that they have not, and that ifl their present shape they never can have our con- currence As. however, we have ution all oc- casions inculcated the duty of loyalty to our Most Gracious Sovereign, the (securing of which is the professed object of the proposed Ecclesiastical Arrangements) so we would be always desirous to give you the most convincing proofs, that we are ready, in the most exemplary- manner, to prac- tice it ourselves. We have sworn to preserve I inviolate the Allegiance, which every subject owes to his Sovereign — we are not accused of having violated our Oaths. Should any other Oaiii, not adverse to our re- ligious principles, he yet devised, which could remove even the unfounded apprehensions of any part of our Countrymen, we .would willingly fake j it.

POLITICAL SUMMARY. NORTHERN WAR. — PARIS Papers, bring the operations of the French Army down to the 13th, to which period there had been no fighting of any importance. 'I hey had re es- tablished the means of transportation across the Elbe, in which it seems they were only obstructed at Pfn-fnetz, and had advanced the corps of Bertrand to Konigsbrutk, and that of Beauharnois to Bishofl'svverda, a dis- tance beyond Dresden, at the remotest point, ot about twenty miles. On the 12th, the King of Saxony was again, brought upon the poli- tical stage, a reluctant personage of the Dra- ma, we should imagine. The progress of Ihe French arms, however, had left him no alter- native, and he was obliged to obey Ihe sum- mons of Bonaparte, who inforced its efficacy with an escort of live hundred men. To keep up some demostration of respect, however, Napoleon received his vassal wilh exterior cordialilv-tljey met at Dresden on the iatiik and, as we are informed in the French papers, embraced." It appears from the positions occupied by the French Army, that Buna- parte is proceeding with great circumspection. There is nothing like a pursuit o;f the Aslies—«■ no pressure or embarrassment alictts their movements. They ir& only wentioned as being in retreat upon the Oder, but this mea- sure is manifestly undertaken with a counte- nance of defence that constrains the adoption of the most reserved system of advance 011 the part of the French, They drop trom position ) to ,()s I io, few miles a day, and with very little extension of their posts, considering the I magnitude of the forces in motion. Nothing ] very important or decisive can resuh froia this plan of operations. While the Allies re- trograde, the Fteuch can effect litlle against ithem; aud we must wait for their taking a | stationary posture, or assuming an offensive t, ive aspect, to produce any great occurrence. We know not from the French papers how the Allied Army is disposed of, or what ground, between the Elbe and Oder, it occupied on I the 12ill iflsL

very heavy fire in some oTlhese attacks they succeeded MJ breaking into the squares and cutting down the infantry. Late in the evening, Bonaparte having- caB- ed in the troops from Letpsic, and collected all liis reserves, made an attack from his left on the right of the Allies, supported by the fireof isever.ii The vivacity of this iioveiiietit made it ex- pedient to change the front of the nearest brigades on the right, and as the wh ile cavalry from the left was ordered to the right to turn this attack, and to charge it. I was not with out hopes of witnessing the destruction of Bo ,iiid rwparte and nil his army but before the cavalry could ariive, il became so dirk that nothing could he distinguished but the flashes of the guns. The allies remained in possession of the disputed v illages, and of the line on which the enemy bad stood. Orders were <fi*en to renew the attack in the tnornmg, hot the enemy did not wait tor it, and it -was judged expedient, with referenceto the general pasture of the cavalry, not to pursue. The wounded have -ill been removed across the Elbe, white the rnnnon and pri- soners taken, and theground wrested from the enemy in the action, are incontestible proofs -of the success of the allies. Both Sovereigns were in the field the whole day. The King was chiefly near the village where his troops were engaged The Emperor was repeatedly in every part of the field, where he was received with the most animat- ing cheers In every corps he approached The tire to which his person was not unfre- <]uent ly exposed,andthecasuattieswhichtook place near him, did not appear to disturb his attention from the objects to which it was directed, and which he followed without any ostentation. General Wittgenstein, with the army, is between the Kibe and the Isler, with the command of several bridges over the former. The Russian troops of all ranks fully realiz- ed the expectations 1 had formed of their bravery and steadiness, and Iheemlllatioll and spirit of patirotism which pervades the Prus- sian army, merits the highest encomium. I have the honor to I)e. &e. ied) CATHCART. lord Viscount Casf'ereagh, c.
