WJFFor the Batchelob, No, 336"; &c. fee the laft page. i- * . --- Since our laft arrived three Brjtilh PACKETS, which brought the following advices. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. ;1 ,. Bastia, May 10. * t" -M Count de Vaux has lately publifteaVa new maniferto, in order B . to contradict the rriany reports that are circulated to prejudice the '....^Corucans agaihft his Majefty's intentions towards them, and to Thew how much 'he has the tranquillity and profperity of the ifland at heart. '" Bastia, May 11. The army advanced yefterday,. and encamped upon the Tento. The Corficans were-forced upon the Tenda by the Marquis d'Ar-cambaT, who feized upon Pietralba. An officer and ibme foldiers were wounded .upon this oecafion. The Count de VaTgemont, who roramanded ihe vanguard of the army, beat them near Canavaggio, and killed upwards of 100 m^u,.among whom wis Capt. Angelo,' one of their chiefs. On the 8th, a-.'. bout .two o'clock in the afternoon, Paofi came at the head of all his forces to " attack, the left of the army.; He had got upon an eminence, when 'he Count .4eVargem>nt marched by CanHvaggio towards Pqnte-Nuovo, attacked them, killer! upwards of 500 of'them, and took feveral prifoners. They would have killed many more, if the Corficans had not blocked up the avenue to the bridge with,their dead bodies. If night had not come on, Paoli's army would have , been entirely Jeftroyed. This prevented the Count de Vargemont from making a proper advantage of fhe-vi�tory he had gained. Leghorn, May z6". The fate of Corfica is unhappily decided in favour of the French,' By the perfidy of a1 large body of Gen.'Pauli's troops, who defert-edhim in the heat of action. When the advices came away the French were battering the caftle of Corte, but' would give no quarters : the place could make but a fhort refinance, fo that they will be foonjn poffeffion of every va-*iWab{e*^ra'ce in that ifland. ^Several of. the chief people efcaped from thence, *fl^�f here iaft *�gn'� itt fa*!1 boats. Gen Paoli, with about 6000 men, Wis.;ftJired into the mountains. -MrA^tca, May 10. 1 The deputies of the government of Milan lately went * tottt&Ttch-monaftery �f Chartreufc de Buccia, andl'equeftered all the effects beldngiagto it. They> affignrd a peufiohof 100 piilojes to each of the monks ' belonging to it far a fubfiftance* and committed the admihiftratioa of.the reve-' nues of that moriaftery to fome facular ecclefiaftiGka. * A new edift has lately been publifhed, by which all the eccleuaftkks of AufWan Lombardy are forbid to alienate their eftates, without the coufent of their fovereign , , Wa-'rsAw, May 18. By letters from the environs of Moldavia, we learn, that'the Ruffian army, the 5 th of this month, returned to their former gamp 'at Kallif, en the banks of the,Niefter, but they.ftauld return toChoczira, as foem as Prince Gallitzin had taken the proper meafures to fupply his troops with "proyifion*.' - * I'We bear from Turkey, that the- march of the Ottoman troops was-retarded by'Ae. floods, which overflowed avail tract of land near. Conllaqtiaople. It is fair? the Grand Vizier, hi* lately patted the Danube at the-head of his army, and that a body of 12,000 Turks has been dispatched towards Aibpb, in order to difiodge the Ruflians from! that quarter. The Tartars have remained very quiet.finoe the death of their Kan, Krim Gueray.1 The confederates ftil I proceed in .committing outrages, as ufual,, but their fpirit feems to have received a confiderahle. check from, the late. foccefaU of the Ruffian atmy. VVe have"1 juft heard that Brigadier Chederas, with a "iarge body �f Ruffians, has.hakea poffeffion of the fomefs of Taganrock, fitu-- aiedon the borders of the lea, near Afopb, at therraouth of the,river?Tanais. WarsAw, Miy 15 The unexpected return of the Ruffian army to. Medzi-boz, we apprehend "will render the confederates in a conditio* to avail them-[� feWei of the protection of the Turks, elpecially if the "army under the Grand Vizirfhould, in.c-mfequerice of thir removal,, paf* the Niefter. H10PJ, June 5. Advic6 is juft received from Sweden, that, in virtue of _*� resolution of the Dyet of that kingdom, all the let&t&s, except two (viz. the Barons de Walwick and d'Hierne), have bean deprived .of that dignity, ind condemried fo psy the extraordinary expences incurred by convening the Hate? at any other plate 'than Stockholm. Pari?, June 1. We have juft received an acco.untfrom the ifle of Bourbon, that the. Nabob Andernec was at the head �f a numerous army, and in foil march for the Eoglifh fettlement at Madraff, in order ta undertake the fiege o- that important place. [Bruffela Gazette.] Ntw-YoRK, April 17 We have an account here from Hifpaoiola of zo fjil or capita! 4hips being arrived; ijt Cape-Francois from Old France, with a ntr ber of troops. Several other letters from Jamaica confirm the arrival of the fhips at Hifpa-i.iola, and one fays, the inhabitants at the Ca~pe_are in a date of rebellion with the'f governor, and that they intended fending^bim to Old France.

Were we to put the paper., prefs earlier than 11 o'clock on the nights preceding publication, we cbul not farnifh that large quantity of news and entertainment, which has indi ced the publick to prefer, and we hope will continue to prefer\�e-thir'pap in greater efteem thaa any other whatsoever. Befide, was there to be,a pn lication of it as early as the other news papers come abroad, we molt mkte^ rially injure force of the poor hawkers, by not having any papen to ferve fuch as fbould (land lite in the lift, confequently not give all an equal chanc of fale : on account of the large number moft of them pay for, we are obliged to make two or three divifions of each perfon's papers every day, delivering the firft at 7, the^fecond at 9, and the laft generally about 11 o'clock; We beg leave, huwever, to affure our indulgent frienris, that no endeavour; (hall be wanting to oblige them with as early a publication as the nature.0 the buGnefs, and our endeavours to merit the continuance of their favour will admit.
