ACCOUNT OF THE LATE HOSTILE

The Sieks under our protectton can bring into the field about 17,000 soldiers.

You are aware that the immediatec auses of the Nepaui war were the depn^datious, et)- croachments, and murders which five Goorkabs; commuted on the hrillsh frontier, and which their Government reiused to make any atone- ment for whatever. The reasons for bringing matters to an immediate iIJsltc were (hC/w- that the Goorkalrs were becoming every day more powerful: (hat HI our opinion, thegreat and good support of out power in India, would have been much wcakcucdbythÙtowaróiy sufferance of such lawless cruelties, and such shameless aggressions. I'iie general state of 11 Is India too, presumed a fortunate itit)iiieiit.- The Sicks were engaged in a difficult war, and Ihe other hostile powers, though formidable, i-iot had time to coalesce against us; nor Odd they, nor could they derive aid or assist, auce from any European power. cir- cumstances are the more worthy of considera- tion, because the Nepaui nation possess all that bravery which characterises mountaineers; they have been inured to war, and 'hey ifilia- bit a country, which to subdue, even when divided into petty states, had batHed all the efforts of the most formidable of the Mogul coti(lue,rorsi so that by a superstitious people th.s country was foolishly thought to be pro- kcled oy magic, No sooner was the war decided «pon, thaft stores were provided, by which timely arrange- ment, and by giving the soldiers money iu hen of half of, half their rations, the expences of the war have not exceeded one half of the original estimate, and which, 1 must tell you, was calculated upon the scale of former wars, and lor an army of 30,000 instead of 40,000 men.. to which number it has been augmented. 1 will explain this matter to you by purchas- ing provssions at a favourable moment, they were obtained at a Jow rate* and by giving thetnen money in lieu of half their rations, if the Oxpence of conveyance of food, which in this hilly country could not be carried upon men's shoulders, was saved. The troops Wen. nevertheless well fed, and satisfied with the at The general plan of the campaign now t, rl claims your attention. It was necessary to guard our immense line of frontier against all those powers which I have embraced under the denomination of "hostile States," and to prevent them from confederating. For this purpose, the Madras and Bombay armies were advanced, and ordered to hover close to their frontiers, whilst that portion of the Bengal force, which was not otherwise engaged, pro. tected from insult the upper provinces. This done, 30,000 mea were prepared for the inva- sion of Nepaui. Their territory, extending above 800 miles, required as well to prevent the Goorkahs from making incursions and laying waste our country as to make a sirong and general impression upon theirs, that we should invade them from several points at the same moment. Acting upon this principle, four divisions entered their country i. e. two to the westward and near to the Sul leege, and two to tbeeastward upon Catmanda, the capital. Let us first consider the move- ment of the western division Geueral Ochterlony, a man of reputation, both as a soldieraud a diplomatist, commanded the most westerly division. His first enter- prise was an attempt upon Terragwery; after much labour he succeeded in getting up his cannon. He then cannonaded the butwoiks, or stockades, repelling several bold sallies, and got possession of them. This accomplished, I and having by au able movement cut off all la I supplies from the garrison, he laid seige to the body of the place, and soon forced the eneiiiy to abandon it. t'lae enemy, under I Ameer Sing, then takes up an aliiioni impreg- nable position. General Orhterlonv circum scribes them, cuts otf their communication I with the Biiiarpore R <ja;i, from wlitn-n the\ drew their Sllllpli", and by that means forces hirn to join issue. Gen. Ochterlony next makes a hold attack upon their fortified posi- tion, takes their stockades, kills 500 of ihem, and drives ttiem into Malouen. He invests thai place, and forces Ameer Sing to eapitu- late, and he obliges him at the SaIne lime to e iter into terms for the capitulation of the other vesteru army under iiaibnddah Sing, his son, giving up by this treaty iii the for- tresses within the range of their extensive dts j tncts. | The other western army wa# commanded j by Giiespie, he who saved Bel(»re and cou- quered Java. Gilespie moved upon Catunger, aud ordered it to he stormed all points at -the same rJsomeut Unfortunately some of the dtdid u it come up in tftiie, and the others loss many men and could make no ii) pressiou Geueral G's observing the disastrous state of things, flew to the head ..tlhe attack- ing column, but not being vigorously se.. conded, he failed, 4iid lost his iife in the at tempt, Let this be our censure—Gilespie was too brave General Martindeli succeeded to tlve command- Another unsuccessful attempt was made to storm this place. The brave defenders, however, had suffered so much, j that they retired from the fort. The enemy under Balbuddah Sing, moved off to Naken, which »hej abandoned without resistance.— They then tou-K up a fortified position on the heights near Jietuck. Driven from this, they retired into ttie foriress, wtiieli, as before stated, surrendered by General Ocbterlony's treaty. Lpt me now call your attention to the con- duct of the eastern -,rite army under the command of General Sullivan Wood was in its first attempt beaten back from SlIme slrong stockades. He then laid waste to J Uve countr) called the Terace. His last effort was upon ButWall, a strong place, which he was obliged to abandon. After this more than one mill tary error was committed General vlartindel had lost two detachments of 500 men each, and other circumstances of a disastrous nature oc- curred. To counteract the evils arising from the fatal supineness of one or two Officers, a fifth army was pushed into Kamoueo. which, from the want ofolher superior Officers, was commanded by Col. Nicholls, the Q.M.G 5 this arm' having got POII- sesion of the pasies, pushed to the caijital.- the enemy sent out a force from Almora to cut off their supplies* this lorce was attacked and lotuetl. Col. N. finding that his troops were elated cy this success, and cboceivieg that the enemy most be proportionably dispirited, he de- termined not to wait for his battering train, but to make all immediate attack upon the fortress. lie did so, and gained a considerable portion of the town. At night his force was attacked sword iu hand by the Goorkhas; however they were \'i°^rously repulsed, and the town and province was s»an a-.ter surrendered by treaty, The re- sult of all these eti'orts was our getting posses- sion ol all the country from the Sill lege to the Gogra. ° In a commercial point of view, the possession of Kamouen and Sounagur will open to us the trade of Chinese Tariary. which I have no doubt will he lucrative heyond the most sanguine hopes. [I regard to the expences of the war, the pos- session of the Tcrace of itself will more than repay ¡ t.
WEST CO.-i.S • OF AFRICA.
WEST CO.-i.S • OF AFRICA. (From Capt. Tuckey's Maritime Geography.) The coast between the Volta and Benin is subject to the powerful and barbarous King of Dahomey, whose body guard is composed of 800 women, armed with muskets, bows, and arrows; whose chief officers approach him crawling on their bellies, and licking the dust of the ground the avenues to whose palace are paved with human skulls, and its walls in crusted with the jaw bones of his massacred subjecls; and who, oil day. of ceremony sprinkle the graves of his ancestors with hu- man gore, while fifty corpses, and as many head! stuck on p„|es, are p|aced round lh> royal sel)ulclire;-the wives of the deceased King mutually kill each other, until the new Monarch orders the massacre to cease and the people, more ferocious than tygers, in the midst of noisy rejoicing, tear the victims to pieces, for the mere pleasure of doing so, and without even the excuse of feasting on the flesh, for they are not cannibals. 44 The negroes of Benin are nearly as barbar- ous as the Dahomeys. Their King, who can bring 100,000 fighting men to the field, is worshipped as a demi god, is supposed to live without food, and when lie appears to die, is thought, like the Grand Lama, to revive un- b der another form. Here human victims are sacrificed to the evil principle; and in their L o.J. I feasts the King and Nobles dip I heir otd! necklaces in the blood of the victims, and pr y to the Gods that they may never be deprived I of this mark of pre emiueuce. The nations between Benin and Loango j are little known. A se, aid inbe ol Biaffers I inhabit the banks of the Formosa, aud arc said to sacrifice their child'en to the Devil.— I To them succeed tiie Colbongas, occupying the country through which runs the Rio del Rey and San Benito; they are painted as tha I least civiiised of iiie noked, apd selling their children and relation* I as slaves." -.g

Monsieur le Marechal, I have had the honour of receiving the nole which you addressed to me Oil the "igth inst. relative to the operation of the Capitulation of l'aris in your case. TheCapitulation of Paris of the 3d July last, was made between the Commander in Chief of the Allied and Prussian Armies Oil the one part, and the Prince d'Eckmuhl, Com- mander in Chief of the French army, on the other, and related exclusively to lite military occupation of Paris. The object of the twelfth article was to prevent any measure of severity under the mihiary authority of those who made it towards any persons in Paris on account of any offictn they had filled, or any conduct or political opinions of theirs but it never was intended, and never could be intended, to prevent either the existing French Government, under whose authority fhe French Commander in Chief must have acted, or any French Government which might succeed to it, from acting ill this b respect as it might Seem fit. I have the honour to be, Monsieur le Marechal, Your most obedient humble servant, (Signed) WELLINGTON.
----'-FREDERICA OF WATERLOO.
FREDERICA OF WATERLOO. We have much pleasure in publishing the following anecdote Elizabeth, the wife of Peter M'Mullin, private of the 27th foot, al though pregnant, had followed her husband into the field of action, on the 18th of June in the heat of the battle she assisted to carry to the rear a soldier severely wounded, and received herself a severe wound in the leg 5 shortly after her husband, after having his cap knocked off by one shot, and his knap- sack by another, was deprived of both his arms by a third, with a severe wound in the body.) Thus disabled, but little bope would seem to have remained for this unhappy pair; they, however, survived, again reached their native land, and were received into the York Hospital at Chelsea, where, a few days since, the heroine was delivered of a fine girl, unhnri by the alarms of war. His Royal Highness the Duke of York. with that recognizance 0: the soldier, aud amenity which always distin guish hira, has stood godfather to the infant who is named Frederica M'Jfullin of Water- loo.We are happy to add, that the father, mother, and young Frederica are all doing i well.

Peace with all the World1 Countrymen, wecan shut filegates nf Janus Patulcitis, and rejoice in being at Peace with all the World Memorable and glorious epoch; which we owe to the valour of our arms, to the firmness of our Prince, to the fortitude of our national character, and to the justice of our Cause 1 It has often been proclaimed that Britain had touched the sum- mit of her greatness and glory. We will not repeat the assertion, stili falsified by her pro. gress upward in cultivation and prosperity, in grandeur and renown. Proud as we are of this day-proudly as we look around from our Ion y eminence; fail as our hearts beat with patriotic exultation and scarcely darino- to entertain a hope that our Country may yet beconiceven more enviable for matchless hap- piness and sublimity-we will not despair but that a long era of Peace, with all the blessings in her trasn. has within ils scope and result, the possibility of rendering us what it is dlffi. cult to conceive, and yet most grateful to an- ticipate in a wild and undefined idea of general excellence. Exactly at six o'clock thi. owrn- ing, Mr. Plants-, who has acted as Secretary to Lord Cnstlereagh, and Mr. Penn, of the War and Colonial Department, arrived in O()W"ill"'gtred with the '['TWIl!.
