Robertson's letter to his Lordship on s"bject, which is dated Lissa, February 23, 1813. Colonel Robertson states, that several iner chant vessels to Lissa, having been captured by a French privateer, and carp d into La- gosta, Admiral Freemantle and himself had deemed it necessary to put a stop to a system which w is likely to become very detrimental; and that accordingly, on the 19th January, he e lib i ked with about 300 of the garrison, two 6poullders, and two howitzers, on hoard the Apollo frigate, Capt. Taylor. They landed on Ihe island of Lagusta on the 21st. Capts.

On information being received that a corps of 300 men were on its way from Ragusa to reinforce the garrison, Colonel Robertson and Capt Taylor were induced to offer favourable terms of capitulation, which the French Com- mandant after some hesitation accepted. The dlaeh melltnflerwards proceeded to Curzola, where, after considerable resistance from the lines, as well as from troops placed at the doors and windows of the houses, and from the sea batteries, the enemy proposed a capi- tulation. which after a modification of the terms, was accepted. On (akin- possession of the town, it was discovered ihat the enemy had packed up the church plate and bdls of L'agosta atid Curzola for the purpose ot send- ing them to the'Continent these were restored to the oppressed inhabitants.

LONDON. FRIDAY, JUNE 4. PREUCH ACCOST NTS OF THE LATE BATTLED. At length we have official accounts, the French account of the late great battles, not of one cr two days' continuance, btit o-C four days, the 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22d ult.-th-e battles of Weissig, of Bautzen, of Wurtchen, and of Reichenbach. The effect of these has been to advance Bona- parte's position from the Spree to the Neisse, a space of-about twenty miles, at a greater expence of bloilfl than formerly the conquests of kingdoms, the subjugation of Prussia or of Austria cost him. Before the 19th, the Prussian and Russian re- inforeempnts, under Barclay de Toiiy, Langeron, Sass, and Kleist, had arrived, ati(I lie total mass of ihp allied force is represented at from 150 to 180,000 fIJn. They had taken up a position, with the Spree in their front, their light extending to fortified eminences, which defended the debouches from the Spree; Bautzen being their centre, and their left supported by woody mountains. Where the ground was open, particularly in the centre, srrong works had been thrown up; and behind their first position were other works of equal -,tr(-n,-rh.-Arterrecontioitrin,- the posi tion u the allies, Bonaparte says, it was easy to conceive how, no wifha'andinga lost battle, like that of Lutzen, and eight days retreating, the enemy could still have hopes in the chances of The French give us no account of the amount of their force, but they name the divisions that were opposed to the Allies, and we find that Ou- dinot formed the right. IMacdonald and Marmont the centre, and Bertram) the left; Ney, Lauris- ton, and Regnier, were at Hoverswerda. to the left of the ene my's left wing, and in a position to act as occasion might require on the right of the Allies. The latter began the offensive by a very fjord, brilliant, and has it should seem, on the part of the enemy, a very unexpected ope- ration. l'hey supposed-that these three divisions had been posted at Hoverswerda, to turn the right of their position, whilst the remainder of the French army was engaged against their whale liaes to the right and left of Bau'en. Accordingly they de- termined to disengage themselves from this mass, and on the 19th, at four o'clock in the ifiorniog, cent General York with 12000 Prussians, and Barclay de Tolly with 18000 Prussians, to attack it. The Russsiaus took post at Kleix, the Prus- sians at Weissig. Meanwhile Bertrand had sent a division to Konigswerder, to keep up a commu- nication with Ney and Lauriston-hut the Gen. who commanded this division is blamed for not making proper dispositions. He was suddenly assailed by the Allies, and their animating hur- rah, which frightened the Italians and threw them into disorder. They were driven from Konigswerder. Gen. Valmy then came up with thejfeavairy, retook the place and Lauriston arrrived at the same time before Weissig. There the battle commenced, and we are informed that the corps of General Torek would have been destroyed, had it not been for the circumstance of the troops having to pass a defile, which caused them to come unonty in succession that is, the corps of Yorck would have been defeated, but for the circumstance of the enemv having themselves been defeated by this very corps! However, the account adds, that it was driven to the other banks of the Sp ee. But not the least mention is made of the Russians under Barclay de Tolly, who were sent to co-operate with General Yorck. l'h fact is, that the enemy, were entirely worsted on the 19th. The baiile of Weissig was immediately suc- ceeded by the geneneral battle of Bautzen, The whole French army was engaged—Oudioot, inlor tier. Vlaelooald, Marmont, Ney, Lauriston, Ree- nier, Bertrand, and Duroc. From the enemy's account of this battle hi is clear that he had nothing to boast of. In the centre, Bautzen, after an obstinate contest, was occupied, and at seven in the evening Oudinot got possession of t!ie heights on the left of the Allies, who then fell back on their second position. But Dalmatta and Bertran j, who were sent to dispossess- the Allies of the heights on the right, failed in their object, an,.lNe, Hill Lauriston, and Regnier, who were t3 pass the Spree and turn the right of tlie-Atlies,, -were,rsitlatly unsuccessful. The Al- lies kept their ground and cut off Ney from com- municating with the i-es,, of he French Army. Such. was the Issue or' the battfe of :"ie 20th, the battle o! Bautzen. If w :s followed by the equally sanguinary battle of Wurrch.—And here it were injustice «ioi to pay the ti-ibale to the skiii, promptitude, ;ud valour of the Allies'. No confusion of movement, hu surprise, no dis- order; the battle of Bautzen hart rencfeied a change in all their dispositions nece*a y, All was to be done during the night, and a'[ was done. We cannot say that 'he enemy's account; of this second general battle is by any means clear, ex cept in one part, that Bonaparte was obliged to bring tip every man of his reserve, and that from four in the morning to three in the afternoon the fortune of the day was in favor of the Allies.—" On the left,Oudinot and Vlacdonald were worsted. Marraont's division suffered considerably from the fire from the entrench uents of the Allies in the centre, whilst Ney, and the four divisions under him, which passed the Spree and taken Prelitz, were beaten out of the village and driven back. Dalmatia, who was senr to debouch from the centre, seems to have been equally unsuccessful; and Bonaparte, seeing affairs iu this critical state, brought up his guards young and old, and all his artillery, even his reserve, to pour a heavy fire upon the right flank of the Allies. Gen. Devaux established a battery, and the Allies immediately stormed it. He was forced to order up Generals Dtilalot and Diouet with sixty pieces of reserve. They were insufficient, till Mortier and the divi.- sions of Damoutier and Barrois arrived. Still the cpatlict continued obstinate on the right of the A Hies, uncovered as it was by a movement of the enemy's reserve. N-ey then advanced and took the village of Preisig, The Allies being thus turned on their right, retreated towards sight. This movement, we apprehend, decided the retreat -of the left of the Allies more than the attack of the enemy. On the 22d the combat was renewed near Rei- cheuback, but it was chieflj between the cavalry of the two armies. In the first. part of the day the French were driven ha k, till they broughT up about 10,000 cavalry, when the Allies are said to have retreated. On the ijd, in the evening, the date of the last accounts, Bonaparte was at Goeritig oil the Neisse, and part of the army betweel) the lie-Qne^s. Such were these sanguinary conflicts, in which the enemy coniesses that lie lost f om 11 to 12,000 men. Daroc, Bonaparte's favourite, was killed; three more-Generals were killed or wounded The allies are said to have lost 18,000 wounded, • 10,000 of whom are stated to have been made -prisoners, But it is added, we could not take aný colours, as the enemy always carries them off the field o! bat'le. We have only taken nine- teen cannon, he enemy having, blown up his .park and caissons. And besides, the hniperrr, keeps h s ca a! y in reserve, till it IS ofsufficlent numbers, he wishes to spare it." As to the idea of Bonaparte sparing his caval ry, which, had the UMies retreated in disorder, would have been of the utmost service in com- peting their route and ruin, it will impose upon no one. The fact is, no doubt, that the allies retreated in order, and that his loss was so sevei e he could not pursue :hem tha' he neither took cannon rior colotirs and as to the number of prisoners he ha" as usual exaggerated them. He certainly gained ground, but it yet remains to be proved whether that will be of signal and decisive advantage to him. A flag of truce is said to have been sent by the allies on the 28d, and it isbelieved that they wish to negociate for an armistice. But would not Bonaparte hat,e,-itiforitied us of this more posi- tively, had it been the fact ? The Paris Papers are silent with respect to Dantzic The wholt of Bonaparte's attention is directed to the movements of the hostile ar- mies between the Elbe and the Oder. It IS evident, from his lucubrations in the Moni- teur, that no circumstance can arise w[iie it will induce him to contend again with the Russians iu their frightful climate. An extract of a private letter, dated Heligo- land. May 31, says. h I left Hamburgh last night, at nine o'clock, two hours after the French had taken possession of the town.—On Saturday last there was a very severe engage- ment at Ochsen warder; the Hanseat<c Legi on. Prussians, and English Riflemen, made a strong resistance; but owing to a blunder of Captain Mnller» who took the French, who were commanded in English, to he E.ignsb, 1,500 men took possessIon ofOchellwarùcr. The Suedes never attempted to assist us in this awful crisis, ftarly yesterday morning Gen. Teiteuborn informed the Senate, that he had no Ipnger the proper means of defence, and left it entirely with the Senate what measures they deemed proper to adopt; and he left Hamburgh with his Cossacks, at three a. n. Yesterday, at twelve o'clock, the Danes, 5000 strong, and with a park of artillery entered Hamburgh, with the French General Brnyere at their head, and took possession of the town in the name of the Ruler of France; and at seven p. m 1,500 French, chiefly Gens-d'ar mes, entered Hamburgh. When I left hat city no proclamation had been issued by the French, nor any acts of violence committed." The Derwent. Captain Sutton, winch is ar- rived at Portsmouth from off Cherburgh and the adjacent coast of France, brought in the Spamsii General Don Juan Senor de Coiitrerar, late Governor of Tarragona, who was made prisoner about 12 months since, when that city was taken by Marshal Suchet, by assault, after a gallant and protracted defence. The General has been wandering about in disguise ever since October last, sometimes in France and sometimes in Holland, a-id at length came off from Bouillon, with three attend- anls of inferior note, inan open boat The Derwent took him .up. under Cape Barfleur While the lJerwent was off Cherbourg!) oil the 31st ultiiro the French were rejoicing for ic their pretended victories in Germany over I he Allies: they fired in the morning, at noon, and in Ihe evening, which is unusual, and no doubt done with a view of impressing on the people if --France an idea of great'advantage leing obtained. The Spanish General gives a melancholy account of the Stale of France and of the people's knowledge respecting the pas ii(im evt!llts in Germany. They are required implicilly lo believe all that they are told on politics, through themedillm of-ti,ie.IFIoniteiii-, &c. and to express a disbelief of any one cir cuiHstauce so detailed* would be to br ing down certain ruin. Such is the caution of the French Government, respecting political information, and so little does it wish to have it disseminated that in the public coffee-houses the newspapers are pasted to a board; added 10 this circum stance the annihilation of lIearlyalllhe minor Journals, and hence the lower orders liud if difficult to obtain any information of passing I events but what is framed for them bv the agents of Government. > By a survey lately made, by order of the avy Board, of Marr-Lodge Forest, the pro oerty of the Earl of Fife, it appears that there is all extent of twenty unies square of limuej, fjt to use as top uiasts for ships of the line; and for masts and bowsprits for cutters and schooners. There are thousands of trees fn For building ships of great magnitude; and it .s estimated that there is in Marr, Lodge Forest supply of masts for the whote navy of Great Britain for sixty years to come, allowing the expenditure to be 1000 spars per annum. and ihey are all self-planted, so that there will be a constant succession.—The Forest is situ- ated on the banks of the river Dee, 60 miles from Aberdeen.

FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. Downing-street, June 2, 1813. A dispatch, of which the following is a copy, was this tla-y Received by the Earl of Bathurst, one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, from Lieutenant-Gencra1 Sir George Prevost, Bart. Governor-General and Commander in Chief of the forces in North America. MY LOIlO, Niagara, February 27, In the dispatch which I had the honour of -('dressing to your Lordship on liie 16;11 inst. I reported the close of the Session of the Pro vmcial Parliament, and my intention of pro feeding on the following day to visillhe mill ary posts In Upper Canada. 1 accordingly left Quebec on the 17th, and passing through Montreal, arrived at Prescott, the first frontir post in Upper Canada, on the 21st, there I found myself within less than a urle of the enemy, posted at Ogdensburgh, '• ho had availed themselves of the frozen Uate of the St. Lawrence, in that lielrhbour, i ood, to carry on repeated nocturnal enter- prises against posts of conimuiiication which were occupied by 'he militia, and to commit frequent-depredation* upon the persons and property of his Majesty's subjects, carefully selecting objects beyond the immediate sup port and protection of a regular military force. Being at that time busdyemployed in the transport of ordnance and ordnance stores for 'he marine establishment on .he lakes, and in supplying arms, accotilretpents, iclothitig- and ammunition for the militia of the Upper Ilro. vince, I deemed it absolutely necessary, in or- der to ensure the safe arrival of these essential articles at the places of their destination, to dislodge the encmy from his position at Og densburgh,Insecure from interruption my line of communication with Upper Canada. I have now the honor of transmitting to your Lord ship the report which Major M'Donnell, of I the Glengarry light infantry fencihles, has made to me of the spirited manner in which he carried into execution my orders on this occasion. I beg leave to l'all your Lordship's attention to the distinguished merit of Capt. Jenkins; of the Glengarry fencibles, who most gallant Iy led a pari of Lhat new levy iuto actIOn; this excellent young man, and very meritorious officer, has lost his left arm, and has the right severely wounded under these circumstances I most humbly recommend him to the favour and protection of his Royal Highness the Prince Regent. It s but common justice to the merits of Lieut, lmpey, of the Dundas militia, who lost a leg in this affair, which has afforded a further proof of (lie superiority of his Majesty's arms over those of the enemy, to entreat your Lordship, that the same benevolence may be extended to him as he would have experienc- ed had he belonged to the regular forces he beiii,, a very respectable and worthy man, en- tirely dependant on his bodiiy exertions in the cultivation of a farm for the support of him- se Hand a y. > n u g fa m i ly.

Sirt-I have the honor to acquaint you, for the information of his Excellency the Com- mander of the Forces, that in consequence of Ih commands of his Excellency to retaliate, under favourable circumstances, upon the enemy, for his late wanton aggressions on this frontier; I, this morning, about seven o'clock, crossed the river St. Lawrence upon the ice, and attacked and carried, alter a liltlemore than an hour's action, his position in and near the opposite town of Qgdensbnrg, taking 11 pieces of call non, and ail his ordnance, marine, commissariat, and Quarter Master General's stores, four officers, and seventy prisoners,and burning two armed schooners, and two large gun-boats, and both his barracks. I My force cousisted of about four hundred I and eighty regulars and militia, and was di- vided into two columns liieright, command- ed by Capt. Jenkins, of the Glengarry light infantry feiicibies, was composed of his own I flank company, and about seventy militia; and from the state of the ice, aud ilic etietey's position in the Old French Port, was directed to-check his left, and interrupt his retreat, whilst I moved on with the left column, coti sistiiig of one hundred and twenty of the King's regiment, forty of the royal Newfound- land corps, and about two hundred militia, towards bis position i,u thetown, where hehad 'ostedhl:O hcavy field at! iHer), The depth si)ine degree retarded the tit). vance of both columns, and exposed them, particularly the right, to a he :.vy cross fire from the batteries of I he er»emy, lor a longer jJeriod fhiiu I had expected, but pushing on rapidly after tbe baueries ti) opcu tlll)oll us, the fcft.coiumu soon gained the rigbl bank,, of ihe river, under the direct (ire of his as 111 I lery alllllinc of musketry, posted onancmi I uesjce nearlhe shore moving ou rapidiv, my advance,consistingof [he detachment or the Royal Newfoundland, and some select niihlia, .1' I turned his right with the detachment of the King's regiment, and after a few discharges I from It Is ai-IIlferv, took them with the bay- onet, and dnHe .¡ns infanlrv ¡hro' t!ie town; some escaping across the Black River into the lort, litit- the majority tied to the woods, or sought refuge in the houses, from whence th jy kept such a galling fire, that it was ne- cessary to dislodge lliem with our Held pieces, which now came up from the bank of the river, where they had stuck on landing, in the deep snow. Having gained the high ground on the brink of the Black River opposita the fort, I pre )I sit2 (lie pared to carry it by storm but, the men being quite exhausted, 1 procured time for tiiem to recover breath, by sending in a sum- mons, requiring an unconditional surrender. During these transactions CaptaIn Jenkins had gallantly led on his column, and had been ex- posed to a heavy tire of seVell guns, which he bravely ntteuvpted to take with the bayonet, though eovered with 200 of the enemy's best troops advancing as rapidly as the deep snow, and the exhausted state (in consequence) of his men would admit, he ordered a charge and had not proceeded many paces, when his left arm was broken lo pieces by a grape shot bul stiJluddauHtedly running 011 with his men, he almost immediately afterwards was depriv. ed of theuse of his right arm by a dlchafge of a case-shot; still heroically disregarding all personal consideration, he nobly ran on, cheering his men, to the assault, till exhaust- ed by pil1 and l^ss of blood,- hèbecame una- ble to utbve Ilia company gallant ly continued the charge,under f,ietiteiiatit ii!ev, hut the reserve of militia not being able to keep up with them, they were compelled, by the great superiority of the enemy, to give way, leaving a few on a commanding position, and a few of the mrtst advanced in the enemy's possesssi on, nearly about the lime that I gamed the height abov-mentioned. The enfjmy hesitat inglo surrender, 1 instantly carried his eastern battery, and by it silenced another which now opened again, and ordering on the advance, the detachment of tile King's, and Ihe High- laud company of militia, under Captain Etis tace, of the King's regiment, he gallantly rushed into the fort; but the enemy retreat- ing by the opposite entrance, escaped into the woods, which I should effectually have prevented, if my Indian warriors had returned sooner from a detached service on which they ad that morning been employed. I cannot close this statement without ex- messing 'nyadmtrationof t.begaitantryat.d self-devotion of Captain Jenkins, who has lost one arm, and is in danger of losing the other. I must also report the intrepidity of Captain Lelievre, of the Newfoundland regi. raent, who had the immediate charge of the militia under Coloiiel Friksei- of Capt Ens- tace, and the other officers of the King's regi- ment, and particularly of Lieutenant Ridge, of that corps, who very gallitlltllled on the advance, and of Lieutenant M' AlIley and En sign M'Donnell, of the Glengarry regiment, as also Lieutenant Gangneben, of the royal engineers, and oi Ensign Kerr, of ihe militia, each of whom had charge of a field piece, and of Lieutenant lmpey, of the militia, who has lost a leg. I was also well supported by Col. Fraser and Ihe other officers and men of the militia, who emulated the conspicuous bra- very of all the roops of the line. I inclose a list ot the killed and wounded. The enemy had five iiitidred men under arms, and must have sustained a considerable loss. I have the honour to he, &c. (Signed) G.

fUNEUAL OF MR. AND MRS. BON JR. On Thursday evening, about seven o'clock, two hearses arrived at Caniden-ptace, the magnificent' seat, lately the abode of the unfortunaie Mr. and Bouar; thcycontaine(t the coffins, which were immediately carried hy the servants of the undertaker up the grand stair-case, and along the galleries into the bed-room, where the bodies were placed on the day preceding in leaden ones. At eight o'clock, sixteen Illcn brought them down into the principal drawing-room, first proceeding through the library and vestibule. The bodies were placed on trestles, parallel with each other, and the two lids of feathers upon tables in the rear. The coffins were covered with black velvet, and ornamented with very rich gilt embossed iv, I handles, nails, &c. The inscription plate on Mr. Dollar's contained simply the arras, and under- neath— Tn.OMPSOy BONAR, Esq. Ohiit 31st May, 1813, Etat 70 years." On the other— Mrs. ANNE BONAR, Efat 59." Before the pall was thrown over them, Mr, Bonar, jun. Mr. Aagerstein, jun. and Mr. Han- key, accompanied the Reverend Mr. Lockwood, the Rec.torot Chislehurst, into the rooiii to view, for the first time, those awful mHI solemn pro- ceedings, preparatory to the last offices, being performed. Every necessary step being thus tak- en, the hour of eight was appointed for inter- ment; but circumstances afterwards induced Mr, Bonar to fix nine o'clock in preference. Soon after eight o'clock the hearses, .with six horses to each, and four mourning coaches and four, took their station at the private door, which leads to the Common, about 100 yards from the Lodge-gate,! the reason for so retired a spot being chosen, was to avoid the crowd collected together. Before the procession was got up in due order, it was eleven o'clock. In the first mourning-coach went Mr. and Mrs. Bonar, the latter the only daughter of the deceased. In the second coach, Mr, Hankey, Mr. Wignland, and 'Mr. Angerstein, jun. in the third, Mr. Thom- son, Mr. Charle, Ilammersley, Mr. George Ham- mersley, and Mr. Angerstein, sen. in the fourth, Mr. Lockwood, Mr. Locke, Mr. Wolaston, and a young Lady. Three state carriages followed. The cavalcade moved slowly, attended by under. takers, pages, mutes, &c. around a part of the heath, and from thence to the church at Chisle. hurst; where, after the performance of the usual rites, the coffins were carried, parallel with each other, to the grave, which is a vault eight feet square, erected since Wednesday last, inachosen spot, The Rev. Mr. Lockwood pe formed the funeral service in a very impressive manner; Mr. Bonar stood on his right hand with Mrs. Bonar holding one arm, and Miss Bonar the other. It was a most affecting spectacle.
----MONTHLY AORICULVARAL REPORT…
MONTHLY AORICULVARAL REPORT FOR MAY. The Wheats have improved so much withiii the last fortnight, where they had greatly suffer- ed by the slug and worm, as to afford a prospect of a full average crop. The early sown Barleys on strong land, have been injured by the nJ¡t; rains at the beginning ol the month, but tho«;4n; tender soils never appeared more promising. Rye is very forward. Beans and Pease look well only where the hoe has been freely used. The Oats, though got in late, bid fair in most districts for a good crop. Tne Clovers are generaify abund- ant, and the mcado" and other grass land, never bore a greater burthen. The Hay harvest has commenced in variou- paris round London, and the markets have in consequence experienced a fail in prices. The weather has been very favour- able to the Potatoes, which have been seldom known to plant better. The Turnips. Rape, and other small seeds standing for a crop. do not promise great produce. The Meat Mai kefs were never so scarcely supplied with Beef and Mutton,. as tney have been through the moirh, and the prices are unusually high. Every kind of lean sfo- k commands the seller's price. But little va- riation iu the Wool Markets from last Month's Report. I"
POLITICAL SUMMARY. The French details oi the balllesofthe 19th, 20th, Ind 21st of May, at Weissig, Baulzen, and Wurchen, we have inserted as fully as our liunls would permit. The whole exhibits a degree of skill and determination in fighting, for which the military annalist has few exam- ples. The enemy ultimately obtained the ground upon which those battles were fought, and that is certainly of some consequence, but he gained little more In the havoc of the field we think he has been the greatest suf- ferer, and it is evident enough, that those conflicts have put him to every resource of his own genius, aided by the talent of those Generals of greatest name in ins nervice. The French put down their loss in ttiese different conflicts, at 10 or 12,000 men, while they make that of the Allies amount to more than double that, in wounded alone. The loss of the enemy in General Officers has been heavy. Duroc, Ihe Grand Marshal of the Palace, was killed by a ball, which narrowly missed Mor- tier, and at the same instant also killed Gen. Kergener. Bonaparte appeare&to be greatly affected at the death of Duroc, who had gain- ed his regard. On the vvliwle, these battles have left the enemy little to boast of it: their real conse- quence's. He has been a dreadful sufferer ill lives hitherto. Perhaps 30,000 in this battle, and he finds an enemy in every conflict, who forces so much effort and peril upon him, as to gi we chance a greater ascendancy over his forlune in the day of battle, than in any of his former campaigns. The Berlin accounts claim a favorable share in those battles, which, it is apparent, they have a right to. The Allies lost no colours, no artillery, and as they assert, no prisoners. The French claim thousands" of the latter, but the indefiniteness of the assertion affects tile cret)it 'of it--tliey can possess Ihecnselves C, of no trophies. There is nothing clearer, than that the Allied army retired after this bailie, as after that of Liitzen, unbroken, and ready for new operations. The reserves of the centre and of the left wing, composed of their best troops, were not seriously engagctl with the enemy. Gorlilz, which was the French head quar- ters on the 23d, is about twenty miles from Bautzen. The French accounts hint at an armistice after the battle. We cannot believe that any overture of that nature would proceed from the Allied Alotiirelis. II The ill-fated city of Hamburgh nas again fallen under the tyranny of Buonaparte. The Danes have been the chief agents in this infamous measure; for which we trust, that one day or other retributory justice will over- take them in its fullest measure. This circum- stance-prevents all further communication by the Elbe* and places the press of Hamburgh under its old inquisitors.
