Yefterday morning, at half j>aft feven o'clock, the King cf Sweden's Adjutant, Baron St'crnblad, arrived at Urickfdah'l with t'ifpatches for the Queen, and brought the news of Ids Majeily having gained a cornpleat victory over the Ruffian coafting fleet in Swenfk Sund.

Paffed by the Royal Charlotte, Smalls, from Calais ; Concord, Roberts, from Cork; Friendfhip, Wintringham ; and Betfey, Dowfland, from Peterfburgh; Sally, Strakef, from Oporto; Juftina* Moncur, and Naricy, Guy, from Jamaica; Efinkley, Rivet, from Virginia ; Nymphj Merry; frum, Africa; and Hope, Rowe, from Ofjenfll* LONDON-Saturday being the birth-day of the Princefs Amelia, was obferved as a gala at Windfor, where the Royal family received the uiual compliments on thebecafion. Yesterday their Majefties and the Princess attended morning fervicc in the Chapel Royal, Windfor-Caftle, and afterwards dined at the Queen's Lodge, By-a,letter from Paris, cf the firft au.hoiity, we learn, that all the Miniders are either on the point of retiring, or have already retired. M. Neckar'thought he could not take a better moment than :1ns, having convifled M. Camus of grofs afperfions of his character.-This, though pleafant to.his feelings, has not given M. Neckar any popularity, as they accufe him publicly in Paris of being inimical to all the Decrees moil favourable to the people. M. de St. Prieft Hands publicly accufed of being privy to all the plots for a counter Revolution ; and there is no doubt but that he knew much more of the plot of M. de Maillebois than he has acknowledged. The capture of Bon Savordin will, in all probability, add M. de St. Prieft to the lift of fugitives. M. de la Tour du Pin having taken from fe-veral garrifons On the frontier the troops which were neceffary to their defence, and of whom the people approved, without replacing them ; and whw, befides, has attempted to fubdue the National fpirit of the army before its organization took place, has been fo feverely treated in the Committe Militaire, and in the National Affem-biy, that he is no: only difgufted, but forced to retire. The Keeper x>f the Seed, the Archbi:hop cf Bourdcaux, has been fo-often rep.iroanded for his delays in forwarding the Decrees to the Municipalities,' and has fo comrletely loll the confidence of the people, th.;t -long fmce he would have been obliged to withdraw himfelf from the Cabinet, had they known whom to appoint as his fucceffor. The Miniifry fupported the Arch-bifhop, becnufe, being linked together, one could not go conveniently without the reft. M. de la Luzerne has printed his defence, and has accufed M. de Gouy d'Arcy ; but the reply of all the Deputies from St. Domingo has made him no lefs unpopular than his colleagues. M. de Montmorin might, perhaps, have remained, as he is known to have been all along a friend to the Revolution, and the only man who gave uniformly to the King the beft and moft honsPc advice ; but his filence fox fix weekl^after having recei'/cd the peremptory demands of Spain, has appeared at leaft fingular. They cTcr not confider, that had he communicated it in the heighth of the difcuffion, it might have committed the nation, in the decifion of a queilion which he thought might be better poffponed ; but the Affembly does not argue on the intention, but on the fail, and he has his fhare of the public odium, which is increafed by the inflammatory writers who daily endeavour to roufe and alarm the public. The Gazette contains ?n Order of Council for difcOntinuing the Bounties payable in this kingdom, purfuant to a grant of the Irifh Parliament to feamen and able-bodied landmen entering the fervice /';/ Ireland. The bounty continues for feamen entering the fervice in this' counfcy. The Lords of the Admiralty have entered a Refolution on their Book of Minutes, to build two new firft rates at Plymouth and Portfmouth, and three new fecond rates at Chatham, Woolwich, and Deptford, befides other (hips of the line, with which the vacant flips are fhortly to bz filled up. An order has paffed the Treafury Board for iffuing three thoufand pounds, to be divided among fuch Clerks in the General Poft-Oflice, whofe falary does not exceed 100I. It is intended as a temporary relief, until a more permanent one can be granted, (by the carrying the Commiffioners' report into execution) and it is to be divided in the following manner, viz. 2000I. anon;1 the Clerks of the inland department, and ibool. among thofe of the Secretary's, Bye and Crofs Road, Receiver General's, Accomptant General's, and Foreign Offices. Sufficient credit cannot be given both to the Poftmafters and Comptroller General, for their active .and liberal behaviour on this occafion. On Saturday laft advice was received in Leaden-hall- ftreet of the arrival of the Pitt Indiaman off the I fie of Wight. She failed from China the 27th of February, J arrived ac St. Helena the iothof Tune, and failed from thence the 16th. A Spanifh (hip, from Manilla, was left at St. Helena, called the Rey Carlos, Captain Jofc Salmon, buthen 800 tons, with 28 guns, and 180 men, bound to Cadiz, with piece goods; (he had been near four months on her voyage, and was in the Dtmoft diftrefs for water.

The Britannia failed from St. Helena the of June, but as fhe is not copper bottomed, fhe may not be expected this week-or ten days.. ... The Fort William was fpoke with by thje Pitt^ off the Java Head, oft the 27th of March laft. . The Pitt has made a very long voyage, as her deftination was for St. Helena, Bencopren arid China, and the crew have Been remarkably Unhealthy, no lefs than twenty-nine have died prj the voyage, among whom were the chief and Fecond mates.

DIED.   Early on Saturday morning,  in the 60th year of his age, Dr. Willmm Vaughan, c^" Union-court,  Old Broad-ilreet:  His death was occafioned by a violent cold,  which, he' caught at a public entertainment about twelve days ago.
