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. New-York, May 1. 4n cinfequence of fomegoods bting lent from London, in Capt. Munds, by the merchants tkeie, without orders, and repugnant to thfe ag.-tement.*j?tered'into by the inhabitants of this city, a number of the irieicfesnt. affembl�f laft "Saturday evening) and agreed, That the faid goods fhould' be U^red ipnmi-djattly, without opening any of the packages, w hich Sgreenwnt was infiantly complied with by the gentlemen to whom they were ' arid.effed. For thViatisfa&ion of the friends of liberty in this and the neigbouring colo-fiies, they ?re acquainted, that there ha? net beei: imported in all the fhips ' from England, rh'ore gnods than would fill a long-boat.   That the agreement �f the merchants has been ftiiftly sphered to. LONDON,    June 12, 13 and 14. It wjs ftrongly repotted on Saturday, that the French had collefted all their Mattered forces together, and had rooted the Corficans in a general engagement on the 10th of laft month, and that they were in poffeffion of the ca- A private letter from Leghorn mentions that the Corficans had laid down . fheirarms, and. that the French had taken poffeffion of Corte on the 16th ulc. and afterwards of the whol<-iflgv.d. . By the iame letter We learn, that Gen. Paoli was not prefenfrin the actions ef the nth apd itthult. but that he hadembarked all his baggage and raoft valuable effects in a felucca bound to Leghorn, By the Bruffels Gazette, which came in tjiis day, we are informed^ by an article from Paris, dated June a, that a courier had. juft arrived there from Corfica with an exprefs, containing, the important news, that the French army feiving, on the i$th of May, opened the trenches before Corte, took polleffion *T that place aftera ftoflt refiftance ; the pafs that led to it alio having been ebltinatefy defended. The French in this attack acknowledge they have loft between 7 and 800 men, and that 60 of their officers were killed and wounded; they made the 'lofs of the XZorlkans amount to 1200 killed, and pretend to have taken 300 priibncrt, and that Paoli has been forced to feek refuge in the inacceffabie mountains. The city of Corte, which is faid, in the Bruffels Cazette, to have been taken by the French, is tbe capital of-Corfica. The general's palace, the univerfity, and the fupreme court of Juftice are in ^ this metropolis, which is Ctuated partly at the foot, and partly at the declivity of a rock, in a plain furrounded with prodigious high mountains, at ihe conflux of two rivers tbe Tavignano �nd Reftorina, and is fa hemmed in by impaffable mountains and narrow deifies, that it may eaff.y be defended by a fmall number of men ; which gives fts reafon to hope, notwjthftanding the bold affertions of the French, that the above news is premainre. _ Ciemeflt Paolt, who behaved with fuch intrepidity in the affair at Roftino, & the elder brother of Pafcbal Paoli, an Ecclefiaflick, about 54 years of age, *nd of Urcommon grnius and application; brave, humane, and fo devout, that fee frequently prays four or five hours in the day, which gives him no little in-Jtuetice over the^uatives.
