INTELLIGENCE has been received here tan on the i8'.h inflant, a Ruffian corps, Ui.dor the. command of Gen. Mtchelfon, attacked the Swedifh troops at St. Michel, coirerr, ruded bv Colonel Stedmg.   The aclion idnigh:, in which the Swedes kept fou-iht very bravely for feve- tcc.'.i at mil tl::-ir ground, and ii\ hours; but Colonel Stedii'.g, perceiving rh.Tt (he enemy muR at length fucceed in turning his f;on(, a.ed attacking him in the flank, thought it prudent, in Older to lave his men rand anil'ery, to evacuate St. Michel, and lciieat ;o Jokas ; which he effected with a very turJiirg lafs, having faved all his baggage and {lores, except the powder magazine, which he blew up, to prevent irs falling into the hands of the enc-111 v.    In conlequence of this retreat, (he Ruffians have entered into S.twolax. On the other hand, i!".c King, at the head of a corps of about 5000 men, with tihy pieces of cannon, ha* palled the tiver Kvmeiie, and m-ide an irruption, near Kcltvs, in Ruffian Finland. Stockholm, (Szucdcn) July 3. A cou-jier who arrived ycllerday morning with letters fiom the King to the Queen, the Prince Royal arid Baron Armfclt, brought the firH news of an aclion between the troops under his Majeflv's command and a corps of Ruffians, whom he met on the 28th pad within two miles of Da-vidfiadt. His MajeiJv mentions no particulars in hi.; letters, only that he had defeated the enemy, without receiving any hurt himfelfj but the courier reports that the King, with onlv 2000 of bi< rioops, which compoled the vanguard, without waiting for the reil of his amiv, advanced to charge the enemv, who amounted to about 5,6'jo men: that the Ruffians Ootid the fire of the Swedes, with great intrepidity, lor a .� capable. He had addreffed a general circular letter to the Chief Magiflrates of all the Cities, Corporations, and Borough Towns of Great Britain, fo-hcitinx their communications and affU'tar.ce upon the fubject of his enquiry, whieh had, bv moil of them, been complied w,rh, with much libera-^ litv and inttruction. He had endeavoured to obtain evety publication that had appeared for a century pal), a1- well as every law and regulation that hid taken place within that pciiod, not only in Gteat Britain, hut through Europe ge-neially, for the correction of abufes in- weights and meafurcs. That moft induflrious. able, and voluminous Report of a Committee of the Houfe ot Commons appointed in 17,58, "To '' enquire into the criginal Standardsof Weights " and Mi'ajures, and to com'ider the laws re-" la.'mg thereto" had furnifhed him with an infinite variety of moll imereltmg matter. To tlie liberality of individuals, he uas alio deeply indebted for more thin a thoufand letters, rnanv of them of great extent, and entering into minute details of the milchiet under confideration, Hating particular local abufes (befidcs thofe more geneially complained of; from the ufe of uncertain weights and meafures, and accompanied alfobv the fuggeflion of regulation, a.id remedy for their mitigation or cute; and. me add, to imlrucl their afiiti u j:h their an equalization faid he, which I cannot do unattended by my fincerefl acknowledgments, that fifiy-feven communities, each of whom lend two rcprefema-tives to this Houle, have altcady infiimTcd, or have declared their intention Members to attend upon and bed endeavours the attempt to of weights and meafurcs. When we iccolleci that in no age or nation, of which any record exills, whatever may have been the (late of its police, or the form of us government (from the uv>fl perfect republic to the moil abfoliite monarchy) have any laws or regulations that have been applied to this object, Dioved adequate to the extjiiftio:: of the abules in i> J;e difcordanee of muff be obvious to which have prevailed weights and meafurcs: everyone how much time, and how much in-dul'iiy muff be indilpeniiblv employed by that individual to obtain everv light within bis power, upon a fubjeft ^hich he Oands pledged to this Houle, and to the public to bung forward_ in that fhape which fball bell jiiomiie efficacy and fuccels. To methodize and to digeff in the befl man. nei f am able, luch a rnafs and variety of matc-ii.ils, in order to bring the fubjetf before a committee in fome form and fltapc, has fully occupied, and continues to give employment to every diligence I can lay claim to. And if I am alive, and in l/as Houfe, it is mv decided intention to bring this matttr before a Committee early in the nextSefiion of Parliament, when I truff my relent endeavours wi 11 piove to that Committee lidfl a laving both of time and ol labour. Invclligation and enquire, even in the mi of perplexing difficulties, have rarely proved totally without piolit: on the contrary, thev have frequently been ic;j,';d uie'ul and efficient beyond tire hope or expectation ot thofe who have h.i.i reeoun'e to then. And hence the com'pari-,'ci may not always tuin out a perfectly jufi one Stite f > the home depannunt, in the rooiti M. de YilWeml.   Ti-.e  Due de.

We fl;ould imagine tlie ntcefluiej of France at this time not fo very gieat as they have been geneially conceived; federal veffels having gone fiom Aniflerdam to Dunkirk, laden with grain, sr.d returned with their cargoes, finding the price too low for the Ipeculaiion of the adveutuiers. HOUSE of COMMON'S, Friday, Jnfy*.\. . Mr. Steele moved an addrels to his Tvlajeltv, pia\ir,g, he would bellow fome Church dignity on the Rev. Mr. Mofs, their late Chaplain.- Oidercd. Mr. Rofe prefentcd a petition fiom the Com-miflroners of Agiicultuie, coni.uning an account of an invention laid before them by a Mr. Foi-fyth, for remedying the injuries done to the bark, or even timber of trees. By cutting out the decayed or wounded part, and filling it with a certain compaction known onlv to himlelf, the tree would be prelerved, and even the excava-t'lin filled up. Such an invention, Mr. Role ohferved, mud obviouUy be of the highvll public utility when made known, and the dileoverer well delerving remuneration. It was not, however, his intention to move for luch reward without the efficacy of the compofiuon being thoroughly afcertained. He therefore moved, that an zddrei's be prefentcd to his Majefly, humbly praving that he would be graciouily pleaftd to appoint trials to be made, fo as to afcertain the value of the difcovery, and to oidcr inch reward to be given the difcoveier as he fhall think fit, and the Houfe will make good the fame.-Ordered. The bill for appointing Commiffioners to enquire fuither into the loiles of American Loya-liffs was read a third time, and palled. Sir John Riz;s Wilier begged the indulgence of the Houfe for a few moments ; he faid, that towards the cloie of the lad Seffion of Parliament, he had given notice, thatinthe ccutfe of the prefent SeOion, he fhould move for a Committee " to confider a,id report the expediency of eftabhfiiing one general ffandard of weights and meatures, to be obferved through the kingdom ;" that for the prefent he would merely trouble the Houfe to aifure them, that he had neither been wanting in diligence or alfiduity, nor been fpanng 111 expee.ee to obtain every pof-fible information upon this mod important fub-jecl ; a fubjefl which, whatever feafible, appearance it might prelent upon a curfory view of it, he bad found upon a clofer examination, to be exteiifive, complex and embanafred in an ex- of the agent and lite Every individual contnbute lome-beucfir.

L 0 N D 0 N, July 24-25. The principal deflrucfion produced in the late wonderful revolution in France, aiofe fiom the atdour of ihe people thcmlelves, who rufhing imperuoufiy to fei/.e the arms depofited in the Baiiile, crowded, over-turned, and Hilled each other. The numbers who perilhed in this lamentable leene, cannot be accurately afcertained, but they were certainly far greater than is given out. Thouyh the Revolution in France is remarka-b'e for its mildnefs, vet fome particular anions call to mind the. Roman profenptions, and evince the pertinacious and daiing fpuit wuh liich might weie it to he imprudently lefifled Matchands, who was formerly Intendant of Lyons, bad given information by letter to the Governoi of the Bjflile, ot the intended alfault of that place, and adviled him to hold out, if poffihle, til! eleven o'clock, P. M. when fie fhould receive fuccour. This letter was found in the pocket of the perfidious and jufily-puni filed Governor, by one of the Municipalite Armer This perfbn happened to difcover the Prevot in the crowd, to whom he held out the letter, faying, " Do you know this?'' The other acknowledging himfelf 10 be the author by his li-lencc, his reproacher making the crowd remove to the right and left, appioached his pitfol to the Prevot's head, and blew out his br.ins. The flames of patriotilm weie not confined to Paris, but Ipread rapidly in the-'provinces. In Orleans 6000 men under arms were ready to alfilt the public caule, and there were mrllions in other, provinces arming and ready to arm. So fiiong was the flame oflibeitv at Paris der-ing the late Revolution, that no lefs a number than 230,000 citizens enrolled their names in the fird twenty-four hours, lor the fupport of Pa-tnoufm and theii Countiy. which the people are animated, and wl proceed to the moft dreadful extremities, :--------.....r.n,A prevot des ft isf�iid, (hat the Count d'A-rtois had formed a plan for firing Paris with fliells:-and red hot balls, in order to compel it to an immediate fur-render; and tf.at for this purpofe the'eminence of Montniartie, which commands the city, had been levelled, and the excavations occafioned by the quarries under ir, filled up. The nest fkp that (lie new Commonwealth of France, for it tiulv d< lerves that appellation, will probably lake, is the eflablifhment of Trial bv Jury, and, of rourfc, a total abolition of Pnelfcraft, Torture, and the Baflile. The Revolution of Fiance bids fair to break one link of the Quadruple Alliance, and may cwntualiv annihilate the whole of that reiult of Audi 11 it Politics, When the King of Fiance went in (late to ihe Town-Houfe of Paris, the people placed the coloured cockade of the Third Eflate in his hat, winch he wore, in paffing through the llveets fo The citizens of Paris rake it in turn, four and ur daily, to iiifpcet the departure and ariival of letters at the Poll-office, that none maybe opened, and committees of citizens are fixed in every depaitm, nt, to fee things brought into their ordinary channel, but with perfect freedom. The National Aflembly fat, during ihe late revolution, fixty hours without breaking up, viz. from Monday morning nine o'clock, till Wed-nefday night at ten. People talk of the French Revolution being injurious to England.-We fay it never will while our induflry remains unchecked. The Governor of ihe Baflile had not been executed four davs, befoie his head was exhibited inLon-don to the cti'iuus at a fhillmg a piece. Anions are ordeied to be immediately commenced againfi two dealers of note for clandef-tmel)- lending wheat and flour out of tlie kingdom, contrary to the fiatute. The feafou, although unfavourable in the Southern part of Great Burain, ha, been very much the contrary in the North of Scotland ; they have had very little rain, and the crops have the appearance of a flouufhin^ harvef'. The Duke of Sudermnnia. with 22 fnips of the line and 1,5 frigates, was ciuizing between Rionhoim and Moon Ifland the i tth inflant.- An rxpreis ariived at E'fineur on the 8th at night, for twelve pilots, which it was thought were intended to re-conduct the Danifh and Ruffian fleets through the Giounds back to Copenhagen, for fear the Swedes fhould take their ifafion too dole to them in Kioge Bay. Every frefh account from thelmpenal Army, fiatcs the diteafes whith are again broke out among it, and that tiie hofpitals are filled wi:h the fick. The election of the Grand Duke of Tufcany, to the dignity of King of the Romans, it is thought, will meet wuh lit tie or no difficulty. In the whole Kingdom of Ruflia, (lavs a cor-rcl'poudent)' theie are only twenty five Apothe-cailes, and not one man-wle.wite ; yet llrange to tell ! it is one of the moll populous countries in the world. Sir Sampfon Gideon as yet has onlv changed his name ; the next change will be his title. He will then June changed his religion, honor,-litle. and r/iat s, fon of Sir F. S-k-s, eloped on Sunday evening, with Mis. p--, ihe beautiful lady of Capt. P-, of the King's own regiment of dragoons, quartered at that place. -1 ins piece Mr. S-left om Ip'.wich, -, the ol gallantry was ef-ter'icci, by the lady's taking an airing with the gentleman in his phaeton, in which they (vt off foi Stow-maiket, wheie a poif-chaife and four was ordered to follow them, on the road to P'aughlev, at which place they left the phaeton to the charge of a fervanr, and purfued their route by a more fpeedy conveyance. Her huf-band had not even miffed his wife, when he received tiie intelligence ot her elopement. She is faid to be a very accomphfhed woman, and has one chili! by Capt. P--. On Wednefday evening, there was the greatelf (form of rain, attended with thunder and lightning, in the neighbourhood of Llandiinio, ever rcniembeied ; Rodney's pillar on the Biyddm, was rent off about a said and half from the top, the roads were 'rendered imp.dTable for miles around, and the crops, we are lorry to fay, are very mater, div Injured. The haililones which fell vefierdav were the largefl ever remembered at this feafun of the year: 1 Ik* fbower began at one o'clock, and beat down thnufi.ids of apples, plumbs, and chernes, in th Kennington one Ox inches fiom the ground, in ino to the Role and Crown inn, itii- the leaf! hurt hood of Liiinbeth and Wednefday laft the wife of Mr. Sturt, of Guildford, painter, was fafely delivered of three children, cne of which is fince dead, the other two are likely to do well. A remarkable ocennence happened at Beverley, \ orkfbire, la ft F.idav. The well-known horle Euryalus, twenty ve.irs of age, the pio-pcrtv of Mr. Thompfon, ol that pWcc, leapt through a window 1 wo feet nine inches in height, ioot eight inches broad, arid above four feet a {table belong-without leceiv-and though the frame of the wr.vaow was very flight I v put up, it was not in the leal! damaged. The window was not glazed. A mare in the fiable-yard, was the occafion of the horfe taking this extraordinary leap.
