Some fay his name is?'Ml-P-erret, others Paul Per&. The laft difpatches .from Bruffcls bring .'accounts of feveral fkirmi0ies hetwixt the Patriots and Imperial troops-fome, of them very bloody, and marked with that fpirit of revenge which ought not to fubfiit among civilised nations.--A very defperate engagement happened very lately at the bottom of the mountain Bellair, between" the Patriots and three Companies of Infantry and the Hiiffars of Wurnifer. Both fides claim the honour of the day. Another affair happened near Ardennes, where the-Patriots were com-pleatly defeated, and four of the prifoners were killed in cold blood by the Huffars. The Congrefs learning from fome deferters, thai Major Baron de Bleckem had given orders for this cruel act, have fet a price upon his head of 1000 florins. The Congrefs continue to amufe the people .with fine declarations and profeffions ; and the people, on their fide, are, from the fuggeftions of the priefthoodv very ready to believe them. Parties of the peafantry are inceflahtly pouring in. to all the great cities, offering their fervices. It will probably not be long before their valour-will be tried; as, from every appearance, it feems to be the intention of the Imperial troops to pafs the Meufe, as foon as they are in fuffi-cient force to do it with' a profpect of fuccefs. arid affectionate female,, w^o, in a foreign iflajf t3, kad CooAesdbim in^ie-l*dof fiekittfc*   '- - The total amount of the feveral branches of public Revenue, under the heads of Cuftoms, Excife, Stamps, and Incidents, for the week ending July 9, 1790, is 224,3911. 19s. 6�d.

" Although trade may in fome refp^Ss fuffeV by this p^jibition, yet, as k may probably not " be of ^Mg duration, no great detriment will " occur by the adoption of a meafure which the " prefent times render neceflary." " It is (aid that Baron. Spielman had been with the King at Schonwalde When he arrived here, which accounts for the length of time he was on his way ; and it is reported that his Ma- . ,-jefty'isby no means pleafed with the contents of ( his difpatches, which indeed feems to be proved by the above circular letter, as well as by the Baron and the Prince de Reus having fet off from hence early yefterday morning, and it was faid they directed their courfe. back to Vienna."

Charles Reeves, Tide" Surveyor of �x�fe at Plyiriouth, in confequence of an information, feized on board his Majefty's {loop Fly, lying in Plymouth Sound, a large quantity of foreign fpiiits, tobacco, wines in cafes, and boxes of Caftile foap. A paragraph in th� papers of Friday, mentions an accident, which had like to have happened in a.gentfeman's houfe on Richmond-hill. Inftead of arfenic it was vitriol, that .was mixed with the brandy, which was brought in that ftate from the houfe in town, and was fuppofed to be done by accident. No-examination was ever made, nor were any of the fervants in the leaft fufpedted. On Monday laft J. Hethefftone, coachman te Mrs. Banfield, was brought before Juftic�*$EIyde, on a charge brought againft him by Colonel Tarlcton, and others* for an infult againft his Royal Highnefs the Pribce of Wales on Saturday evening laft, at the ddbr of the Hay-market Theatre. It appeared; by feveral evidences, that ffetherftone had refkifed precedence to the carriage of his Royal Highnefs, by whipping his horfes, 'an une, RoberrE^s. and John Jones applied to'the landlord of the White Hart Inn, at Salingi near Brainfifee,. m.

He was . then afked what, was become of his fellow travel-  ler (meaning Ellis) ?  He anfweredj he was good to tranfact fome bufinefs in London. No fufpicion of his having committed a mnrdef arofe, until the^ morning of the 36th; when thei mangled body of Ellis w^is difco^ered by a labour-. ng man who was going to his work ; it was concealed at the bottom of a dg.ep_ditch> covered by brambles, and had been dragged fome diftance, which was afcertaioed by {he blood that was difV coverable acrofs the Held. The mangled conditioo,." of the body* and the violence that- mull have been..' ufed, are, perhaps* unprecedented.   On the back part of the head a wound of confiderable depth, appeared.   The fkull was, in feveral places, fractured ; the under part of the belly was fo mangled, that feveral of the ribs, moft of which were broken, appeared, and feveral ftabs were obfervablt: in. various parts of the body.   The face lay downwards ; and, on attempting to turn ir, the head fevered from the body; the whole of which wa3 in a ftate of putrefaction, although it had lain fo. few days.
