LONDON, MONDAY, JUNE 19. Commencement of Hostilities. A Mail from Flanders arrived this morning, I brinio letters and papers from Brussels to the 17th. Hostilities have beg-un.-On tho 15th a detachment of French troops advanced towards Charlemonte, but retired the next morning. Thus far the Brussels papers but private letters state that the attack was made upon some Prussian troops near Charlemonte, and that they were left fighting when the accounts came away. The Duke set off for Namur at four in the morning of the lGlh. A letter from Harwich, dated yesterday says, that a Prussian Officer had arrived there with dispatches, stating 'hat the FRENCH HAD A TT ACKED the Prussians on Thursday last, aed that the Officer left the armies fighting' on Satur day. The French are said to be commanded by Murat ami Vandamme. Lellers from Ostend, dated Saturday, men- tion that the firing of artillery was heard, and an engagement believed to have taken place. On the 161h in the morning the Doke of Wellington set off for the army. and during that and (he preceding day,all the troops which were in the rear of Brussels were brought up, and proceeded to the frontiers. By the 19th, all the army, British, Prussians, Hanoverians, &c. were to enler llrance. And a similar move- ment was expected on the Rhine, in Savoy, and in Nice. The Austrian army destined to enter France from Italy, is said to be the finest that ever was assembled in that quarter 8000 British troops, and 20,000 Sardinian, form a part of it. The first Russian army which is up. march- ed through Bohemia to the Rhine, and con- sists of-84.000 infantry and 26,000 eavilry.- The second is near Frankfort, and consists of 81,000 infantry and 23,000 cavalry. The 11) i rd, of SO,OOO, will have arrived before the end of June. Thus vast are the means, and thusjuat is the cause which they are to fight for.. Aorona has surrendered, and thus Ihe wholo Neapolitan territories have passed awav from the authority of Murat The departure of Bonaparte from Paris is placed beyond all doubt, by the arrival of It. single Paris Paper, of the 14lh.

Old Cambaceres is to be the President. He also appointed a Committee to maintain the safety of Pat ii. And thus a few hours perhaps only will clajise before we hear of a great blow having been struck. '0 The regular communication with France is now stopped.

A R M Y OF NAPLES. Vienna, June 3.— Captain Count Thuru, who arrived here last night express, from the head-quarters of the Imperial army or Naples, and was dispatched from thence on the 24th of May, has brought the following account of the remarkable-events that louk place subsequently to the Military Convention of the 20th of May. Capua was occupied by the imperial troops on the 2tsit at noon; the enemy's garrison in the jiince, under the command of General Rapp, had disbanded itself of. its otrn accord before the arrival of our troops, committing, at the same lime, excesses, and acts of violence, of every kind. The Genera! in Chief, Carraseo- sa, and the Marquis de Galio, who had with difficiviij escaped the fury of the soldiers, re- ceived at the same time news of an insurrection which had broken out at Naples against the late Government. The city guard was no longer able to keep in check the mass of the populace and the Lazzaroni, and to prevent the most dreadful scenes. In consequence cyf this, the said General and several Deputations seni from Naples to the Imperial head quar- ters, made the most urgent entreaties to hasten as much as possible the entrance of the Impe- rial troops into the city. FieJd-Marshal Lieut. Count Neipperg accordingly received orders lo proceed immediately lo Naples, with the 10 proceed immediately to Naples, with the fvichtenstein hussars and the Tuscan dragoons, to check the disorders, and to assume the com- j juand of the place. He arrived there on the 22d at two o'clock in the morning, at which time the tumult had risen to the highest pitch. The City Guard, assisted by some British marines, who had been landed by Admiral Lord Exmouth, defended the Royal Palace. and lhe valuables and ef- feels which it contained, against the furious mob. By the intervention of the Imperial troops, the plundering was prevented, and the property of the state preserved for the new -Government. At noon the same day, the Commander in Chief, Field Marshal Lieut. General Baron Bianchi. III company with his Royal Highness Prince Leopold cf Sicily, made his sole.Dii entrance into Naples, at the head of 30,000 men, amidst the most lively expressions of en- thusiasm from the people. The greatest part of the people armed themsetves with muskets which the troops had thrown away all was now rctored to order in the capital. The vi- gorous measures of the Imperial Commander in Chief and of Count Neipperg, insure also the immediate and complete tranquillity, of the environs and of the provinces, 10 which the spirit o/ insurrection might have been com- municated by the disbanded army. On the 17ih, in the evening. King Murat, accompanied by Generals Miliet and Roca Romans, by Dukes Pignatelli, Cicarra, and Schiteili, and several other Neapolitans, em- barked from Naples, for Ischia, and thence on board a small merchantman, either for France or Gaeta, The Queen, who was on board of the Tremendous, had, in a prior Convention I w.th Commodore Campbell, been promised a free passage to France, with her suite. Upon the declaration ot Lord Exmouth, that the Commodore had exceeded his instruc- tions, fresh negotiations were entered into with her ou the part of Austria, with the. co. j JW ¡ operatron-of PrinceLeopold, Lords motiih awl Burgbmh in consequence of which.she, together with her children, who are at Gneta, throws herself under the protec tioll of hili imperial Majesty, and with Gene- rals Macdonald and Livron, and also with the Ministers Znrlo and Mosburg, goes on board all English ship to Gaeta, and thence toTrieste, where she is to await, from the favour of his Majesty, the determination of her future resi- dence, with the promise never to return'to France or Italy, without his Majesty's special permission. On the 23d, when this Conven- tion was concluded, the English and Sicilian expedition, under General Macfarlane, 6000 strong appeared in the bay of Naples. The army of King Murat, which, on its march from Capua to Naples. consisted of about 16,000 men, of whom 2,300 were ca- valrj, and which by the Convention was to take a position at Saluus, was all dissolved in a few days, so that not a division belonging to it isnow to be found complete. Thus ended, after a six weeks campaign, which will coafer immortal honour on the Imperial troops, and their distinguished com. mandcr, the perfidious attempt to revolution ize Italy, with the flight of its author, the en- tire dissolution ot his army and of his king* dom. The Revolutionary measures recoiled upon those who had employed them, and Hiey were indebted to the favour of the conqueror alone, for not falling a sacrifice to the nopular rage, which they had themselves excited.
SUPPLEMENT to S ATU H DA V's GAZETTE India Board, Whitehall, June 15, 1815. The following statement of the operations of the second division of the field army, under the command of Lieutenant Colouel Mawby, of his Majesty's 53d regiment, before Kalunga, has been this day received from India Fort William, Dec. 13, 1814.— His Excel lency the Vice President in Council is pleased to publish the following statement of the ope- rations of the 2d division of the fieid artiiv, under the command of Col. Mawby, of Ins Majesty's 53d regiment, before Kalunga, which tet-iiiiiiated ii, the evacuation of the fort on the 30i11 November. The battering train from Delhi, having ar rived in camp ori I he 24lii ult. the operations of the army against the fori of Kalunga were resumed on the morning of the 25th at one o'clock, p. in i- on the 27th, the breach wasre- ported completely practicabie by the Officers in charge of the engineer and artillery depart- ments. Col, Mawby having also satisfied him- self of (he fact, from personal observation, and being anxious to avoid any delay which should afford the enemy sufficient time to strengthen hi.. internal defence, either by cut- ting off th breach, or erecting works, so as to command the entrance into -it. ordered the storming party instantly to advance. The stofullng party, consisting of all the grenadiers of the division, and oi-e ba'taiinn company of the 5,>d, with the light infantry company of thai corps, was led by Major fngleby, and *fler b -ing exposed till inrce o'clock, aa inter- val of two hours, to a most galling and de- structive fire of musketry and aie'eh locks, t')Cv their efforts opposed by insuper- abic obsMcle?, and were in consequence, or- dered to abandon the attack. In tins arduous and gallant, but unsuccessful struggle, many bi-itfc Officers and raeu were killed and wounded. The h\"¡¡)ÍJn\!f testimony is borne by Colonel JViawby to the zeal and courage dis p:ajf>d by the and tr»eo who were en- gaged in the assauit; and although their brave eiiorts were not crowned with success, they produced such an effect as to convince the enemy ot the inutility of further resistance.— Accord ngfy, on the 30IH, at four a. m. the Napaulese garrison abandoned the fort of Ka- lunga to the British troops. The annexed are the names of the Officers who were killed on the occasion: Lieut. Harrington, H. M. 53d regiment CapL Campbell, 6!h native infantry; Lieut. Cunningham, 18th ditto. The number of Officers wounded does not exceed nine, and we are happy to find that none of them is returned as dangerously hurt. The Gazette likewise contains a dispatch from Colonel Ochterlony, giving the particu- lars of the surrender ofthe Fort of Nallagurh, and its dependent Port of Taragurh, accom- panied by a statemeut of the number of the garrisons, amounting to about 100 men, taken prisoners of war. Our loss was about three men. The Gazette likewise contains an ac- count of the operatlOo of a small detachment under Major Bradshaw, commanding on the frontier 01 Sarun and Tirhoot. The loss was likewise, in this case, trifling. Major Brad shaw thus concludes his account No Nipaulese force is now in the Teralee of Cbumparun and the military occupation of it being cornpletcd, I have proclaimcd Its subjection, and ca-lled upon the inhabitants to manifest their allegiance to the British power. Every symptom of a willing obedience to this iiotificatiot) appears in the surrounding vil- lages, and the principal persons are coming in 2!1 11 to give the necessary security for entillil),, them to trust and protection."
HOUSE OF COMMONS, FRIDAY JUNE 16. ASSIZE OF BUEia, Mr. Fi-,z?tlclaizd Lewis gave notice, that on Mon- day next, he would move for leave to brinfr in a Bill, to repeal the Acts for affixing the Assize of Bread. 7 CHAPET, EXEMrnOT BILL. The Chancellor of the Ercheque), moved the or- der of the day for the third reading of the Chapel Exemption Bill. Sir tV. Scott rose to give his decided opposi- tioll to this Pill. It was unnecessary for him to preface his observations by referring totheenor- mous increase of Sectarians of iate years in this kingdom- there. was not a town, a village, or hanHya street in which they had not erected a Chapel, and the consideration of their exemp- tion from parochial assessment became a matter of no small importance. The grouud on which the present Bill was now introduced, was not huilt upon any allegedgrjevance on the part of ,e on the part of those Disseaters it was not accompanied by any j claims foi a relief from hardships t lie was there- fore entitled to assume that no case of complaint existed—and that the plaiu object in view was an exemption from Tax—(Hear.) Now he knew no. places of worship which were exempt from parochial rate, except Chypels of Ease-places of worship from which no pecuniary stipend was drawn, and the Chapels of Foreiga Ambassadors; 1 ✓ all others were rateable, berauss tbey belonged j LO proprietorships, who de rived emolument from hem, and thereby laid them open to ordinary burdens. Unless this subject was taken up gra- tuitously by his Right Hon. Friend (the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer, (he must suppose he had been instigated by the influence of those re- ligious people for whom the exemption was sought. Now, they came forward with no case of oppression or injustice and on what grounds of expedience were the arguments built which were to create this innovation in the law of the land ? Why, that the Bin would produce con- cïiiaJion through various classes of the commu- nity belonging to the Churches of England and Scotland. But, it appeared there was no want of harmony and cordiality between these bodies, therefore no bonus of conciliation was required: and his Right Friend had sallied forth on a diplomatic expedition, to effect. a pacification between two bodies, who were already in pro. found peace. But the plain Fact. in his fSir W. Scott's) opinion was, that the parties did-not so much seek to take the burden of rates from them-, selves, as to throw it upon the backs of others. The increase of population rendered it necessary, that those rates should be equally borne by all, and the consequence of any partial exemption would he, that a few would not only escalre free, but that their share would be an additional load upon others, who perhaps were already suffi- ciently encumbered. He denied that any argu- ment of toleration could be drawn from this sub- ject. No man valued this principle higher than he did, but he understood its acknowledged inter- pretation was tiiis-11 that every man may exer- cise whatever form of religious belief he pleased, but that he must contribute h:s legal proportion towards the maintenance of the church establish- ed by law." The Bill before them went directly against this maxim, and claimed exclusive ex- emption (Hear.)—Whatever spirit of concilia- tion was meant by its introduction, would, he was sure, he found as nugatory as it was unne- Icessary, I tie circumstance of the non-exis- 1 fence of any division. It would be a mere peace- offering to carpenters, masons, and others, who, however useful in their proper stations, were certainly not entitled to any special grace and the ouly cffect it would produce w-as, to laoitt out an encollragement to commercial speculations in religion, which had, from their universality, he- come too conducive to purposes of fanaticism- need he rJlIc any other proof of this species of mischief, than the profanation which was prac- tised in private Chapels by individuals, such as Joanna Southcott, and others ? It wa acerfainly one thing to avoid repressing superstition of this kiud hut it was another !o enable ii, not only to pass without expense, but to throw the weight- upon the shoulders of the people, who happened to live in the same district. The Hem. and Learned Gentleman then stated the law upon the exemption of places of worship from parochial rates. This exemptioll was founded upon the principle, that they were nnt places of profit.— He concluded by expressing his determination to ta ke the sense of (he House upon the Bill. The Chancellor of the Exchequer never before heard the objections to this Bill propounded in so strong and elliqllent a shape as they hai just- been, by his Right Hon. and Learned Friend.— It had been argued, that if those Chapels were exempt, an additional bnrden would he imposed upon the other classes of the- community. Now he uenied that this would be the case, but even if it were, the House could easily suppose ho.v insignificant the onus of that burden would be, when he informe'1 them that the amount of the Chapel rate at prasent levied in London did not exceed £ >i.—(Hear)—so that instead of shifting rate. it would remain where it already exist- ed. He concurred in the priucipies of tolera- "on, as laid dow« by his Learned Friend, and he would also admif that whenever private Chapels became convertible to purposes of profit, thev were open to the assessment of rates. Where tnis was not the case, he thought it a great hard- ship that any doubt should prevail upon their liability of being taxed. Those Chapels were extremely useful to the community in the pro- pagation of religious faith; rhey were particu- larly necessary in large parishes, where, without iheii aid, a hrge portion ofthe inhabitants could have no means of being accommodated in places of religions worship for instance, in St. Mary- le-bone, where there was a population of 70,000, and in St. Pancris, with one of 60,000.—(Hear, hear.)—Unless a measure of this kind were pass- ed, explanatory of the law, in his (the Chancel- lor of the Exchequer's opinion) an endless scene (II petty litigation would he found to exist in bodies which would otherwise would be at peace. Mr. Bankes said, that if the whole rate of those Chapels only amounted to -04, where icas the tie cessily of this Bill of exemption Heili-.)-- No Chapels were rateable, but (host- in which private speculations of pecuniary profit were car- ried on and he was, therefore, of opinion, that the Bill was unnecessary. Mr. Buttermorth regretted that the Right Hon. and Learned Gentleman opposite had indulged in the application of unmerited epithets to a set of men, who were every way as useful, enlightened, and loyal, as any in the Kstablished Church I ["Sir yy. Scott, across the table, disavowed any such imputations.] Mr. Butt-rworth resumed and said, the Bill had emanated from a spirit of conciliation, and he regretted that in its last stage, the Right Hon Gentleman should have come dowu with the force of his opposition. flatl lie (Nlr. B.) anticipated this, he would have been prepared to shew, by the presentation of petitions, that nmnerous hard- ships and grievances did exist, which loudly call- ed for redress. The late Mr. Perceval was of the same opinion. and at the moment of his assassi- nation, was contemplating a measure like the present, which he had only deferred until another matter of still greater importance, then pending, was decided by-Parliament. As to the specula- tions of carpenters, masons, and others, he (Mr. B.) rather thought they would be found in the Church of England than among those soci- eties in question and he was also of opinion, that the Riht Hon. Gentleman might have spared casting the allusion of Joanna Southcott upon persons who despised such fanaticism as much as he did himself. It would he rather ex- traordinary if he (Mr. Butterworth) drew an ar- gument against the Established. Church, from the fact of one of its Clergymen having been hanged at the Old Bailey and yet, what diffe- rence would there be between the two observa- tions ? The lIon. Gentleman then explained the nature of those Chapeis for which exemption was claimed, the great benefits they conferred, and the education they distributed, and concluded by stating, that the most mischievous litigation would follow the rejection of this Bill. Sir fV. Scott explained. Sir Jolin Nicholl laid down the law on this sub- ject, and quoted the decisions in the Court of King's Bench, which established the case that Chapels in which no revenue was collected were exempt from rateage and that, on the contrary, where a sum was collected, they were within that liability. He concurred in the principles and opinions of his Learned Friend in the Objections to this Bill, particularly at a time when it was notorious that those sort of Chapels were in many cases, matters of mere private specula- tion.—(Hear.) Atr. IVetherall saii, that as the Bill professed io act on general principles,: it should not con- fine the exemption to parochial rates, but extend it to county poor rates, and all others. He dis- claimed all intention of interfering with the spirit of toleration but he contended, that the present Bill would not exempt persons attending those Meeting Houses from payment of any rates, but went merely to relieve the pockets of the Ministers, OT the proprietors, who build on spe culation for the object of gain. For these rea- sons he should oppose the Bill Mr. Protheroe expressed his astonishment that the Bill should be opposed on the third reading, by Gentlemen who sat silent during its former stages, leaving the gallant General (Thornton) to oppose it propria Marte. He hoped, however, that the House would support the enlightened views of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and remember that Sectarianism would never be sup- j pressed by evincing ungenerous feelings of iili- 'I beratiry. Mr. Serjeant Best defended himself and the other Members who would vote against the Bill, from the imputation cast on them by the Hon. Gent, who spoke last, he having declared that they took the Chancellor of the Exchequer by surprise, in opposing the third reading of the Bill. The measure was esteemed by some to be conciliatory, but he was of opinion, that concili- ation should be more general in its nature, and. not be practised towards the Ministers of Dis- seuting Meeting-houses, at the expence of those of the Established Church. He contended that of the Established Church. He contended that no question of toleration was involved in the present discussion, and that if the Bill were passed, intolerance, if existing any where, would be levelled against the Established Clergy. The I present Bill was exceptionable in anotlier point of view, as it drew no line of distinction between those Chapels built purely from religious mo- tives,and those erected on speculation, as a source of individual profit. If the exemptiou were ex- tended to Dissenters, it would justify others in .making similar claims the Bill should therefore be rejected. Mr. Vansittart and Mr. Butterworth severally explained. Mr. IF. Smith said, that although much time was occupied in the discussion of the Bill, yet that all the talk was on the one side. He "la- mented that so much ingenuity had been exerted to give the Bill an importance it should not pos- sess. The Parochial Churches at present were not sufficiently numerous for all the parishioners; and it would he well to consider, whether it would not be much cheaper to grant this exemption to those Supplementary Chapels, than to build others for public accommodation. lIe could see I no injury in the Bill to the Church Establish ment, and would therefore support it. Mr. Baring said, that the Bill was useful to prevent all the petty litigations respecting the rates on Chapels, by which the country was at present embroiled. As to the emoluments which Clergymen may derive from those private Cha- pels, they were as liable to taxation as any other property. The Bill effected nothing more thau to exempt the building itself from the parochial rales, lie was happy to learn, that religious feelings were so strong throughout the country, as to make the building of Chapels a successful speculation. speculation. After some furthei observations from Sir Wm. Scott, the House divided— Scott, t!:c HUlls_(¡vi<led- l'or tne liill.„ .og Against it 41 Majo'-i^y 19 The Bill was consequently thrown out. MILITIA. Lord Castlereagh appeared at the Bar of the House with the following Message — GEOHGE P. R. His Royal Highness, acting in the name and on the beAaif of his Majesty, thinks proper to acquaint the House of Commons, that in pursu- I ance of an Act passed in the present Session of Parliament, enabling his Majesty to call out and embody the Militia of Great Britain and Ireland, or any part thereof, in the present iusporiantcon- juncture, it is the intejition of his Royal High- ness to cause the same to be called out and em bodied, and to march as occasion may require." Lord Castlereagh then moved—' Tha an llUmble Address be presented to his Royal Highness, to return thanks for his graci- ous Message, and to express their satisfaction at the calling out and embodying of the Militia, at 1 this important conjuncture' The Address was voted, and ordered to be pre- sented, as usual, by such Members of the House as were of his Majesty's Privy Council.
DUTY ON POST HORSES. NORTH AND RAMSDEN, ESQRS. V. COtLEN, Two causes came on to be tried on the 10th of May, at the Essex Assizes, before Sir G. Wood, one of the Barons of his Majesty's Exchequer, brought by the plaintiff's, Messrs. North and Ramsden, in the character of farmers of the duty arising on post-horses within the above county, against the defendant, YVm. Colleu, a licensed postmaster, carrying on business both at Harwich and Colchester, for not accounting for the duty on several horses let out for hire by him, and for not entering in his stamp-office weekly accoui t the number of miles the horses had been let to travel The defendant appealed to place great reliance of success in his defence, as those causes were to be tried before the above Learned Judge, who had summed up in favour of a postmaster, at a former assizes held at York, but in this the defendant wa? mistaken; for although the cases were similar, the conduct, pursued by the above plaintiffs, and their solicitor, appeared to the Court and Jury of an entirely different description to that adopted in the case at York. In the I present instance the offences complained of by the pleadings were not unnecessarily multiplied, as was the case at Yprk. The Jury, under his Lordship's direction,with- out a moment's hesitation, found a verdict for X 100. besides the full costs, which will amouiit to several hundred pounds. The plaintiffs, in the course of the trial, offered by their solicitor to forego all the Jpenalties, if the defendant would produce his private book and accounts for the actual duty he had received, but this was not complied with. These causes were conducted on the part of the plaintiffs by Mr. Serjeant Best, and Marryat and Heath, as Counsel, and by Mr. Pinero, the Soli- citor to the present farmers of the said duty, aris- ing within the counties of Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Cambridge.
