   Dublin News-Letter (Newspaper) - April 22, 1840, Dublin, Dublin                                Vol. IV. RICHARD  REILLT. blin News- Numb. 344. setter. From Tuesday April the 22d, to Saturday April the 26th, 174.C. Yefterday arrived one Britifh Pacquet, which btought the following Advices. Petenburgh, April 1, N. S. H E Commandant at Kiovv has acquainted the Court of the Serus-kier of Bender's having intimated to him that 1500 RulTnn Subject, who have been in Slavery in leve ral Parts of Turkey, were arrived there, which he had defied him to fend for. The faidCommandant has fent thither an cqu-1 Number of Turkifh Prifoneri of the 30CO already arrived at Kiow, under an Efcort of 150 Cofiacks to be exchanged with the ocher. M S The Negotiations of the Marquis de la Chetardie the French Anibaffidor at this Court, fe;m to be in no fair way of fucceeding. M S Cokgn, April 19. N\ S. The Winter Barley being generally frozen in thofe Parts, the pri.e per Maiden is already rifen to upwards of four Dollars. M S Paris, April iS.   We cannot as yet tell with any certainty whether the Squadrons we are continuing "to fit out at Breft and Toulon are bound for, nor when they wiil put to Sea. M S Car laft Letters from Madr '. brought us no New= of any Importance, but th.2 ^iere w;is a Report that there had been an Engagement between Admiral Haddock and fome Spanilh Men of War, to tne Dif advantage ol the latter. Hambargh, April 15. N. S. land, that iome Depredations have beea committed from thofe Part* in Pmffim Brandenburg, where Several Houfes had been plunder'd and laid in A flies, by way of Reprifal to what has been done by a Pruf fern Party at the Cloyfler nam'd Paradice, which Affair it is feared wiil be attended with very bad Cenfequences. M S In fome of oftr* former we gave an Account of the Mutiny among the Peafems of Holilein, but without Matmg precrfely the Occafion of it; this is what we how hear of the Matter: The King of Denmark taring refolv'd to eibblifh a regular Militia in the Dutchy of Holilein, every Bailiwick was call'd to fur tima-certain Nari>berof Men for that purpoie; but the TTnhabirants of the Coanty of DittmaiiTen refufed to deliver up their Contingent, upon Pietcx: th .t they had obtain'd Letters Patents above eighty Years fince, which exempted them from it, upon Condition of paying a certain Sum into the Exchequer. This Pretenfion was io tffe&ually fuppurted by Force of Arms bv the People of the Bailywick of MddorfF, that a Detachment of Horfe and Foot being fent againft them, were repulfed with fome Lots: However the Commiflkries fent into the Country to take GogftJzsnce of this Affair, have found means to con tent the Inhabitants, without any Prejudice to his Da-jiifli Majefty's Rights. D P Hanover, April 19. N. S. O-ir Sovereign, in CampaCion to the milerable Situation of th;s Liefto-nce, has not only caus'd all his Granaries to be upen'd in this Capital, in on;er to fupply at a much lower tnnn the current Price with Corn for ready Money thofe that can fpare Cafli, and upon Credit fuch as have no ready Money, either to feed themselves or fow their Lands, and the molt Needy for nothing; he has alio order'd the Stoie-keepers of his Magazines, wlierever they be, to do the fame in their Diftricts. This companionate Prince has alfo abated tins -Raits of hii Tenants in proportion to their LofTes, and railed the Pay of hi> Troopers and Dragoons, tor the ^better maintaining themlclves and their 1 lories. M S Hagi;;, April 11. We hear from Leevvarden that their mok Serene Highneiles the Prince and Princcfs m Orange-�re preparing to make a Tour into Germany, not only to lee his Dominions there, but to ufe tae Miner J Waters. S J E Gibraltar, Feb. 16. Such a Stormy Winter has not been known by the okteit Peri'on here ; we have had frjctefiive Rains for -fbsr Months ; four Ships were left in the Bay, aad ilverul old Hjul'es fell down. In Spain they are in a much vvorle Condition; their Corn is wafted out of the Gi.ound ; one Town u entirely deltroyed, and a whole Reg;ment was drown'd by the Exceffiver.efs of the Rain pouring down from off the Hills upon them, they being in a Valley upon their March. We live in no Fear of the Spaniards here, for they carfc bcljege us if they would, becaufe the Ground betwixt us and them is overflowed, and will not be fk to erect any Batteries on, this Summer. G E Amfterdam, April 22. The States rf the Province of Holland are fpeedily to affemble, and it is not doubted but that during the Sitting of fuch A trembly, their Noble and Great Migbtinefles will again bring the Augmentation of the Forces q^the Rej ub lick upon the Tapis, and will pat the fame once more under the Confederation of the States Geae-al, feeing th- Deputies will then have made Report to their High MightinefTes of the Meafures taken witn the Deputies of the Admiralty. G E Letters from the North feem to confirm what ha; been already remark'd, touching the Destination of the Squadron which is equipping, as fome lay. in no great Hurry, at Breft. The fame Letters ren-.r.rk. that the Miniliry of Sweden, perceiving the Rulii;m to be ftronger upon the Frontiers of Finland tnan wai expeeled. has given up the Defign of recverii.g tiic Provinces conquer'd by Peter the Great, h.-.ving iin^c the excefTive Cold has abated cauied no more Tioop^ to pafs into that Province, where thofe which are already in it can hardly fubfift, by reafon of the great Scarcity of the NecefTaries of Life. It's affired that the Court of France infilteth upon his Swediih M^je fly's fending zcoco Men into Pomerania, to be there in Readinefs to make a Diverfion in thole Parts, in cafe th.it upon the Death of the Elector Palatine the King of PrulTia fhould oppofe the Meafures which his molt Christian Majelly has taken, in Concert with M S j the Empercr, to fecure the Succeffion of the Dutchies We hear from Po-! of Juliets and Bergues to the Prince of Suitzbach : And in order to luppcfrt this Body of Troops, the Court of France will, is laid, lend a Squadron into the Baltick poles:   1 he one of the Marquis de la Chetardie, who ufes his utmolr.

GE which is intended to anfwer two Pur-to give Wdght to the Negociation cf this Affair, as that Prince has lately raifed rr.any Difficulties to 1 .-.rfiguers trading with his Subjec"t�Ort the O ails of hi* Kingdom.

G E On Monday Lit died luddenjy, in this Town, ; jr-J 07, the R- v Air. Jonr. Shaw, M. A. Rcitnr of Deiit(;[i in the C= un y of Duihim. He was educated in Eman .e!

G E Yette.day ie'nnight in the Evenii'g \'ice Admiral Balchen failed from Plymouth Sound, with the following Snips of Vvar under his Command, viz. the Rufl'e!, Capt. Charles Dennilon, of 80 Guns (the Flag Ship); Ncrfdk, Capt. Thomas Graves, cf So Guns; Grs/tcn, Capt. Thomas Davers, of 70Guns; and the Deptford, Capt. John Yeo, of 60 Guns.

Th: Progrefs which the EngUm Arms are making in America,  and the Situation of their Fleet in the Mediterranean, which wiil prevent the intended Siege cf Poit-Mahon, furnifh Cardinal Fleury, who eagerly thirds after an Accommodation, with th? Means of conllraining, in a manner, the Court of Spain to give Attention to the Conditions of Peace that may be propofed even by Great Britain her.'elf; and fhould the Spanim Treasures from America be almolt ever fo little longer prevented from coming into Europe, his Eminency would have a fair Opportunity of conquering the almoft invincible Spirit of the Queen of Spain, who is exceedingly out of Temper becaufe of the Indigence that prevails at the Efcurial, and which cccafions grrat Deficiency both in the Pay of the Troops, and the Appointments to the Minifters at foreign Courts, win have large Arrears due to them; thisalfooccafions a difagreeable Vacuity in the Queen's Treafure.   Thefe Incidents, it's faid, are not altogether difpleafing to the Cardinal, who, tho' efteem-ed a Pattern of Meeknefs, has neverthclefs -fome human Paffions to gratify.   It's well known that Po litical Hatred greatly refembles Theological, efpeci ally when a Minifter of State happens to be a Prielt. The Difcoveries made by the Papers that were in the flrong Box ftolen from the Marquis de Yaugrenant, by which a fecret Correfpondence appear'd to be c.r-rying on between the Queen of Spain and M. Chau-velin, which was the Caufe of the Difgrace of that Miniller, are Affairs fo recent, that every Body remembers them, and will never be forgotten by his Eminence.   'Twas on this Account, tiiat the Cour: of France fo fuddenly chang'd its Conduct tu wards the Emperor, at which all Europe wonder'd. G E From Amlferdam, that the States General are a little alarmed at the Right of Sovereignty which the King of Denmark attributes to himfelf in the Seas about Davis's Streights; tho' this will much more atferfl the Englilh than the Subjects of then High Mightiuefics.  The more Nocice is however taken War that have been cruiz ng off that--------, three of 70 Guns ecch, ine of 60, and another cf 50; tiie Wind having continued fair ever fince, 'tis generally believ'd the Squ-diX>n is by this time arrived before Cadiz. G E Lall Saturday arrived at Penzance the Mary and Jofeph from Biiboa, but laft from Breft, from \vhenc� {he brings Advice, that not one Ship of Force is mov'd, nor are they fo much as rigg'd. G E We hear th^t feveral Men of War at Portfmoatjl are order'd to hold themfelves in readinefs, to fail on the firA Notice. G E Yefterday was held a Board of Admiralty, when the Command of the St. George, a Second Rate cf 90 Guns was given to Capt. Thomas Griffin, Commander of the Prince Caroline.                      G E On Tuefday there was an uncommon Number of Men of Wars Boats preffing Men for the King's Service below Bridge ; a Lieutenant in one or which Lad been fo fuccefsful as to prefs ten able Sailors by Eleven o'C.'otk in the Forenoon.                    G E A Body of the moit ccnfiierable Merchants ar-drawing up a Petition to be prefented to the Hon. Houle of Commons, for a Ei.l to be brougnt in to regulate the Price of Seamen's Wages.   By the intended Scheme we hear they are to be allowed a certain Sum per Month in Peace or War, &c     G E We hear that three more Regiments of Foot will be fpeedily raifed.                                      G E , On Turfday being the Birth day of his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland, who then enter'd in the 20th Year of his Age, at Noon his Majefty receiv'd the Compliments of the Nobility and Gentry, and in the Evening his Royal Highnefs gave a Ball to feveral of the young Noblemen and Ladies.
