His Excellency the Earl of Weftmorlandi Lord Lieutenant of this kingdom", embarked on board his Majefty's yacht the Dorfet,  at Holyhead, yefterday at eleven O'clock in the forenoon') and arrived early this morning off Bbwith', where his Excellency landed about nine o'clock, and proceeded to the feat of the Earl Of Howth.   A fquadron of horfe was immediately difpatchedthithefj and attended his Excellency to this city.

Luxemburg})* Dec z8. Notwithftanding the reports of the arrival jo� the Patriotic army in this province, we are tolerably quiet. The Commandant and States take alt poflible precautions not to be furprifed ; we are farniihed with pro-vifions for at leaft fix months, and our ramparts are well planted with artillery.

The Council of Luxemburgh, and a vaft number of the principal inhabitants attached to the Emperor's party, are retired to Treves; however, the place is fo badly fupplied with provifions, that the Patriots will not have much difficulty in reducing it by famine.

They ftill continue to levy troops, and a proclamation, \v6 are af- 1 furcd, will ihortly appear, enjoining all the fub-jecls of the Porte, without exaeption, from 18 to 60 years of age, to take up arms and repair to the army. Four P' ' as of Three Tails, two Of whom are brothers-m-law to the Sultan, are ordered to Sophie, and his Highnefs himfelf goes to Adrianople. Frankfort, Bee. 29. Although we learn from Vienna that the Emperor is rather recovered from the late attack of his old complaint} yet his ilate of health is llill very critical; His Majefty has caufed a fopha to be made; on which he repofes in a half-reclining pofture, in which fitu-ation he breathes better than lying in bed. We have accounts from Warfaw> that a Con-greis will certainly be held at JaiTy, between the Mini^rs of the Porte on the One part, and thofe of the two Imperial Courts oh the other, without the mediation.of any other Power, the conferences will be held at Jifay, where 35 TiU'ks LONDON.

Cn Saturday the King Tainted again with the ftag-hounds in Buckinghamftiire; the chace being turned out on that fide of the water. The day's fport was very good> and the fporifnien very numerous. Lord Barrymore wa9 honoured, on Friday evening, with a numerous and elegant company of ma/ks at his houfe at Wargrave. The Prince of Wales, and almoft all the Nobility and Gentry in the county of Berks were pfefent. Ex trail of a Letf&c from Madrid, Dec. 14, I7S9. " So alarmed are the Court at.the growing clamours of the people, that in addition to the Anathema pnblifhed by the Inquifition againft the fpi-rited pabiphlets \Vhich', in fpite of the vigilance of the pdlice, were daily fpread aBroad, an ordinance? has been iffded; enjoining'all perfofls ccpt the grandees of Spain) not fettled in Ma-^ drid,and who cahript prove fubftintial reafons for> their temporary refidence there, -to quit the capital withia fifteen d^ays, under a penalty of fifty ducats.   If this order mail be executed rigb-roufly, 20,006 perfons will be expelled.-This is evidently meant againft the French, who are very numerous, and who with the volubility of their nation, at this moment more than ever inflamed, are inceflantly pouring into the ears of the Spaniards the delegable tiiufic of human liberty Thefe afts on the part of Government may ftifte the fpirit for a time, but fhewing at once the fears and the weaknefs of the C^.ur't, they will animate the intelligent and thinking part of the Community, and Spain will no doubt foon recover its juft rank in the fcale of nations." We have all along  Hated to our r'eadersi , that as- foon as the people of the Belgic provinces had   wonderfully  delivered themfelves from  the  oppreflions  of the  Emperor,   important difputeS took place between the different Orders. - It was not to be expected that, in a moment fo favourable to the: rights of men, the Commons fhould fubmit to be continued in their ancient fubje&ion to the Clergy and NobJeffe, and fuffer the difabilities to. remain which.had their origin in the oligarchic principles of the feudal fyftem.    Accordingly their enlig';teried writers feized the firft moment of a free prefs, and the rights of men have been afferfed with the found reasoning that truth and philofophy fupply. -The States of Brabant, in conformity with the general willies, folemnly declared,- " that the third eftate mould be organized and have in-" fjuence, fuch as the dignity of the people, 'the " advantage of the Republic, and the prirjciples   into commiffion at this port, now "fitf-tit^for'ibe Weft-In ies. *' An- officer of the dime of'Fraier, of the . l^'p^r ^a;racks, ran his fervant tbrough. the l body, who had faithfully interfered to prevent the cOnfequences of a drunken fqaabble 'between his mailer and another officer. The man ft dange-roufly wounded, and the officer is put under ar-refi� and a dbable guard put over him." WESTMINSTER SESSIONS'. Saturday Mr. Sylvefter moved the Court that the Rev, Mr. H. might be difcharged out of caftedy upon his own recognizance, to appear at th'a next Seffions to take his trial.     , . . In fupport of, the motion, an affidavit was producedand read, ftatingj that although diligent inquiry liad been made refpeSing the chaVadler, rnidence, and conditioa of the profecutqr> no i\ '"uihation could be obtained, and that it,appeared he had never lived at or near the place he had fworn to be his refidence; that there was alfo ftrong reafon to believe, that no ground 'exifted for the change againft Mr. H. ^ut that the pix>fecHtioft wa� founded in malice.       .  Upon hearing this affidavit, the Court ordered Mr..H. to be brought t?o the bar.   He \Vas accordingly placed there, When he was afked if he ihad any thing to offer to the Court; upon wh,ich . he addre'fjed himfelf to the Bench. He faid fie felt \tki' ftrOageft reafon to believe that.there wa&no '^a) pr6fe.cutor of the indictment preferred againft jiim ; and that it was his-_ intention, in due time, to bring the parties concerned in this nefarious bufinefs td cdndigrt punifhment.   He prayed the. Court fo take into confederation the whole of the cireutnftances of his cafei and to permit .him to b'& 'difcharged upon his own recognisance". The Chairman faid, that the motipn, froni the cirgumftances difclofed in the affidavit, appeared to have reaibn fpr its foundation. There were, however, two points worthy of confederation ; the one was, whether it would be a proper ex-ercife of the difcretion of the Court to permit the priftmer to be difcharged without taking a better fecurity for his appearance than his own recognizance ? The other point wa�, whether the-ufage and practice of the Court could warrant a compliance with the application that had been made i Mr. Sylvefter produced feveral inftances to prove, that motions of a fimilar nature had been made and granted. The Court, after fome deliberation, difcharged the prifoner but of cuftddy upon his own recognizance, Which was taken in 500I. fcr his appearance at the next feffions. It was then moved, that" a fervice of notice of the prifoner's intention to appear to take his trial, to be left at the place at which the pro-fecutoc.had fwort\_ himfelf to reiide, might be adjudged legal fervice.   This was ordered. On Friday evening laft the. poft-boy bringing the, mail from Lynn, was Hopped between feven and eight o'clock in the eveningj on Methwold Warren, "near Brandon, and was knocked from his feat by one or mori; perfons, who drove the horfe andean atfayiWth the mail. .
