TRQSPEC T OF the POLITICAL EVENTS, THAT HAVE OCCURRED sinc� THE beginning1 OF TrfE PRESENT year. y arise ou r cfEvil, and ^^ppy shall I he if the shall iiereaitcr entitle me to acknowledge the verity 19 maxim. The World is no stranger to my name-nor to mv pretensions: my new Ca$ey however, is singular, and it shall be briefly stated. It is but twelve months since I first had^the Misfortune to see George Ctpwtk-.we* a Partnership was entered into between us wi the Concern of The BarrisK Theatvj*. on!yy on terrain conditions, as mav be seen by a reference to the Articles, and { for a few months 1 had reason to.consider him as friendly to my General Interests*-feur, alas 1 a short time proved, that, like, i KfTE, he was only hovering round me, until an opportunity i scenes1 of havock and desolation, especially as the un- shotiW offer when he might pounce upon, and destroy mc as his '        - - � unsu�.pe�fting prey. As the French Nation has been accustomed, frost' the beginning of the'War, to carry the Campaign with the most bloody perseverance into the very heart of Winter, it He purchased -|$y - Premise* under a.^retei%cje Gf.;'*ervitfg Vnte-; bnt befo.cthe Bar^iri.wfls con%^t*�^4^r^�.--^*7 AWtrtcc from -Wotntj he'-took pTemftftn^ ind violent Posi.:ssion of them-turned my Family dut of doors by Force--detained all thy twpittyanti Books then on the Premises, excepting tl:'* Books which constitute the Hritish Library-converted all my extensive Esrablishment to his own Use-detained, and still detains my Books of Accounts-r-unwarrantably collected the Debts due to me, in his own name, and audaciously threatened, and even sued, Parties indebted tome as Debtors to himself. Having, by these means, been kept for seven months without access to my Property or Books of Accounts, I was consequently deprived of evf ry Resource which could enable me to satisfy my Creditors ; and I have been in every other respeel: subject tu the utmost Distress, without any other remedy, than an appeal to the Laws of my Country, which Appeal is now in Process, and, I trust, in train to render me ample Justice, whenever the Law's Delay will admit of a final U ue. That Process has already obtained me an Injunction from the Court of Chancery against his proceeding any farther in Printing the Bxitish Theatre, until he shall have satisfactorily answered my Charges against him on Oath. If oiths are sacred, as I think they are-cursed will he be if he dare to controvert even one of my assertions ! Whatever may be the result of these Litigations, � wish ever to remain, as long as I live, the obedient Servant of the Public. These Litigations* however, have been the Parent of the present Project:. My Declarations to the World have been candid, and I-was young enough :o imagine, that, in consequence, my Plan would have been much sooner brought *o maturity. Experience, however, a Kitter cup of which I have drank deeply, has convinced me, more fully than ever, fhat I am to look forward only to Good Foitunc through the medium of renovated Resolution and Perseverance. When I tell the World, that till within seventy-eight hours of the appearance of the present Messenger, my Printing Ar- ra,ngcnicnts were nor cnmpleated, owing to the disappointments of Mechanics, they will not wonder at receiving an imperfect Work. Such it is, ir will indicate, I hope, a good Intention, and justify mv pretensions" 'to that Which I shall ever wish to aspire to-the Pa*; r on a of. of the pL"*Br,ro, The futur*. Nuinbc; -i riaitc? mvftcit, Wfvl be looked f'c* with so^e^nxiety. -Resources are open-Talents, are engaged-and mv Experience shall be actively employed to render the Messenger hereafter a welcome Visitor at the Sunday Break fast-table of every Person who wishes to be informed or amused. JOHN BELL. r --,-,--.--r-- DESCRIPTION OF THE ADMIRALTY TELEGRAPH. The above Cut represents the frame of the Telegraph with six moveable octagonal irames, V>y changing the position of which, any letter may be madr, and in certain positions, a variety of tilings mav he signified at pleasure Thus one-frame being phidd horizontally, and the others ,shut, or in a perpendicular situation, may denote the hirer .j ; two frames only being in an horizontal position may give this letter //.; three the letter t ; and so on. As there may be m.ide as many clunges wirli these tramcs as with the same number of bells, the letters nt the alphabet mav be made with ca�c, and a surhcicnt number of signals nuy be formed for extraordinary purposes. In the ;ibo\e Sketch the Octagons marked i to 6, all move on an axis, areiaised pejpendicutar, as 1,2-^6, and returned to their original sratiof.. as     4, by means ol the ropes -V fixed at tiiecnds uf the cmss bars A\ which are'atrached to the extremi-ries id tlie axles     on which the octagons move ; to each cross bar there are attached twu roprs, one at each.extremity ; at our "�"d to raise I lie octagon perpendicular, and at the other to reui'ii rhr�.e ropes pass through the roof of the house into the room  1 "-e persons  re staTf--ned conrmuallv to watch and work !i>e.- � ili.ir frames arc erect*.(f on a chain ot posts ' - � ; -. t i.m to Deal. natural to expe*fl that the J New Year would have been ushered in by simiiai' ion, esfe  Official Notes that had recently passed between Mr, Wickham, the English Resident, and M. Bak-TiiELEMi, the French Ambassador, at Basle*' lti answer tc^ his enquiry, whether any disposition towards Peace prevailed in France, Mh Wickham was given to understand, that-the French Nation was ready to treat with its enemies; but that the Cession of all the Countries incorporated* with us owr^ must necessarily form the basis of t!*:e Negoczatxon. As these comprize the whole of the Austrian Netherlands% all Savoy* A*vignon, the Ctmtat Venaissin, and several^ smaller districts, such a preliminary was declared ab-: solutely inadmissible by the English Cabinet, in a Note addressed to all the Foreign Ambassadors resi* dent in London. The determination of the Minister to resist the pretensions of the enemy, met with approbation, eveai among those who are in the habit of censuring his measures; so injurious did it seem to English honour, interest, and .security, to suffer the new Repubilc.ro , accession to its strength, probable thswtor continued pressure of the War might occasion the breaking up of the French Finances, ox produce some new conation, which* by increasing their embarrassment at home, might render them less haughty in their behaviour to Foreign Powers. 1 hese sentiments, however, were by no means general among those who oppose the warlike system pursued by the present Adraiaistration. Many of . them'remarked, that the question was nor, Whether the proffered preliminaries were such assuifed us, but whether, by a further expence of blood and treasure, better were likely to he obtained. America, they-said, had carried on the war for vears after her paper-money had sunk to total insignificance; and might the French; nor did it follow that a new convulsion, or even the overthrow of the Government, would render them less formidable ; since, during the whole contest,- they had regularly exhibited the curious phenomenon oi the greatest weakness and racii* Iation in the centre, accompanied by- the 'rnost tremendous force and the most unremitting energy at the extremities of the political machine* It might even have been said, that the Governs ment itself had assumed greater consistency since the establishment of the New Constitution.-^-The Coun-cil of Elders generally approved of the proceedings . of that of Five Hundred; the Council of Five Hundred submitted with a good grace to the few instances of opposition it met with from the Council of Elders; and the Executive Directory cordially seconded the views of the Legislative Bodies. Ere long, however, a spark from the warm regions of the South seemed likely to raise the flame oi contention anew between the discomfited band of Terrorists and the triumphant party of the MnUres.
