Vienna, July 7. In confequene'e of accounts received from the Congrefs of Reichenbach, a courier has beenfept to. Marshal Laudohn, with orders for him to fend one. part of his army into cantonments. The firft courier who arrives from Reichenbach will, we flatter ourfelves, be the bearer of the preliminaries of peace; as the King confines himfelf entirely to the concefiions made to the Hoiife of Auftria, by the treaty of Pafla- i rowitz,T)n the 21ft of July^ 1718.      -    ' The report lately circulated of Prince Maura-jeni's having taken refuge with Marfhal de Co-hourg is absolutely falfe, that Prince having oil the 26th of laft month been attacked in his entrenchments at Klafat by General Clairfait, put to the rout," and obliged to quit Wallachia entirely. .

Which Refolution being put, the fame was paffed unanimovjly, and ordered to be entered on their iodks, and publifhed. Signed, HENRY GRATTAN, Pro-Secretary, The Volunteer Arrny receive the fignal for vigilance from the Dublin Corps, of which the following is the Refolution : INDEPENDENT DUBLIN VOLUNTEERS.

Colonel in the Chair, Refolved unanimoufly, That we do highly ap- } prove of the fpirited exertions of the Common j Council of the City of Dublin, in vindicating . their Charter, and fupporting the law ok the land-and finding bur liberties involved in the fate of our fellow-citizens-do hereby pledge ourfelves to fupport tham by every con st 1 tut ion �l means.

All letters from the Southward, and through-every channel, concur indeforibing the inaclion * of Tippoo*s Troops, ever fince their reputfe on the 29th ult, as a ftrongly preemptive circum-flance that the Sultan himfelf is,difabled from active hoftility, by having been at leali feverely wounded in the lines of Travancore. Soma accounts fpeak with confident certainty, and adduce pofitlve proof of his being dead. One very r�-fpeftable authority writes, that he was wounded in the leg by the ball that killed his horfe, which was afterwards found ; and that as he was carried off, he received the tnortal wound of an Arrow in the back, and expired next day-Certain it is, from the articles afterwards found in the ditch, the- preemption of his extreme perfonal da�ger is highly confirmed. His rings, of great value; a fmall French ink-Hand which he ufed ; his large and fmall Perfiah feals and beads; his Pauhdaunt ox beede-boxj; his fufee and pillols, with his name engraved; fword,-and "Palankeen, &c. &c. And it is alfo"certain that his camp and people are in great apparent dejection. SHIP-NEWS. Dial, July 23.   Wind S. W.

Whenever Lord Howe put* to fea, it is ge nerally believed that we are to confidar all negotiations with Spain to be at an end. Mr. Gibbon, the hiftorian, Was prefent at tHe oel^biation of the French Revolution. M.

The enlightened men of France do not countenance the infult which was offered to M. d'Or-leans by a gentleman who elbomed him rudely at the Thuilleries.
