From  SATURDAY,  July 31,  to  TUESDAY,  August  3,  1790. M O ND AY, Aug. 2.    . From the LONDON GAZETTE. :K\ the Court at St. James's the 30th of July, 1790. PRESENT, The KING'S Moft Excellent Majefty in Council. IS Majefly in'Council was vQj) this day pleafed to order the Right Hon. the Lord High Chancellor to iflii2 writs for proroguing the Parliament; which was appointed to meet on TuefHay the 10th day of Auguft next, to Tuefday 'SiVly the twelfth day of O&ober text; and alfo for proroguing the Convocations of Canterbury and York, which were appointed to meet on Wednefday the eleventh day of the faid inonth of Augult, to Wednefday the 13th day of ihefaid month of October. Stockholm, July 13. The Finland mail of yef-terday, and a meflenger from the DaMe of Suder-mania, who arrived in the evening, brought the hews of the defeat of the S.vedim fleets by thofe &f Ruflia, on the 3d and 4th infant. An unfuccefsful attempt made by the King of Sweden to deftroy the Ruffian coafting fquadron at Viborg, and the approach of the Prince de Naflau, with the Cronftadt divifion, had already rendered the pofition of the Swedes at the entrance of Viborg Bay extremely critical, when the fcarcity of ammunition, and the want of provisions, made their return to their own ports a meafure of ne-fceffity. The King refblved therefore to avail himfelf of a rtrong easterly wind, which fet in on the 3d, and to fet fail with both fleets for Swenik-Sund and Svveaborg. The grand fleet had to penetrate through a narrow pafs, and to fuftain the fire of four Ruffian line of battle /hips, two of which were placed on eich fide of the Strait. After this it had to engage the whole of Admiral TfchitfchakofPs line, which Was drawn up along the coaft, at a fmalldiftance, while his fiig;.:2s were ranged among the iflands which He nearer trie ihore. The Swedifh van, under Admiral Modee, pafTed the Strait, without fuffering any eflential lofs, firing with great fpirit both broadfides againft the e lemy. The canonade from the four Ruffian mips was however fo powerful, and continued.to be fo well fupported, that it was refolved by the Duke of Sudermania to make an attempt to burn tnem. But this operation proved fo unfuccefsful, that the firefhlps employed in it were driven Upon one of his Royal Highnefs's own line of battle fhips, and a frigate, both of which blew This accident feems to have caufed a degree of confufion among the (hips that were to follow, four of which ftruck upon the rocks, and were left to IT e mercy of the enemy. On. their farther courfe along the coaft, with a tUminifhed force, the Swedes loft two more (hips bf the line, which were taken by the enemy. The engagement continued all night, and part of the next day (the 4th), on the evening of which the Duke of Sudermania arrived at Sweaborg. The fate Of the coafting fleet is not fo exactly known, no-official accounts having yet been received from it f but it is certain that the King arrived the fame evening in Swen/k-Sund, -with a large part of the fleet, having loft fix gaHies, with eight hundred men (of the guards) which were taken by the Ruffians, befides a number of fmaller vefTels taken or Junk, reported to amount to fixty. The whole lofs in men, on the part of the Swedes, is eltimated at feven thousand. His-Swedi/h Majefty, having filpplied the re* mains of his fquadron with provifions and ammunition, and having been joined by the divifion under M. de Croriftedt, which had hot been able to reach the Bay of Viborg, is already failed again, With a view to prevent the Prince of NafTau, who is faid to be advancing with the Cronftadt and Vibnrjj fquadrons, from getting into the port of Frederickfham.
