BruJJih, Feb. 27. Some perfons on ThnrfHay laft thought fit to take the patriotic cockades from their hats, and replace them with others ; but the people were to exafperated at it that it was with great difficulty the perfons above-mentioned efcaped their fury. The following De.clar-.tion was ftuck up in different parts of  his city :  " We, the underwritten, declare that the Ma-nifefto of the People of Brabant fliall be obferved in all its points ; that all that is done fhall be in the name of the People, in whom the Sovereignty centers, and that the States have never pretended to contradict it. Bone at Bruffels the 25th of February, 1790. (Signed) H. C. N. Vandernqot, Plenipotentiary Agent for the People of Brabant. Van EviPBn, Secretary of State The Five Oaths and'all the Companies of Volunteers were under arms, and maintained order during the publication of the abeve. Namur, Feb. 23. The Belgick troops in this city are fo numerous that they can fcarcely find lodgings for them either in the town or fuburbs, and therefore quarters are preparing for 7000 men in the Bailliwick of WafTeige. The number of workmen employed about the fortifications of our cnflle amounts to 900, and their daily pay to 450 florins. IRELAND, Dublin, March 2. Mr. Kirwan's fermon, laft Sunday at St. Ann's church, produced 4.62I. which, with the late contribution at St. Peter's, amounts to the fum of 900I. raifed from public charity, in the coiirfe of a few days, by the exertion of a fingle man. To maintain for the term of three fucceffive years, fuch fbvereign dominion ovei the human heart, is without example in the hif-tory of any age or' nation. Wonderful is the power of eloquence! but, peculiarly fo, when that rare and fafcinating talent receives additional weight from ardent zeal and unblemiihed manners.    ; . .    ' ship*news.

What was this, but faying in effect, that he would truft to experience aguinft rcafbn-and that he would rather live by fufferance than fyftern ! On the fame principle he wouJd have fupported every erroneous eftablifh-ment that d'd not produce pofitive mifchief. He would fubmit to inceffant danger, provided he had never fallen into the fnare. As well might an unhunted -frare.;Tat a''.Convocation of its fpecies, argue againft taking meafures for protection from the dogs, beeaufe it never had been afl'ailed. The fupreme, civil, and; rnilitary command ia our Eaft-India poiteflions being now united in one perfon, the Governor General of Bengal, it may befaid to-be.the greatelt employment of any fubjeel: of Britain, or perhaps the v/orld.
