Extra3 of a Letter.from Amjkrdam, Sept. 26. " Advice is received here-i that four flfrps of the fquadrori under Vice-Admirai King/bergen have put to fea again, but that their deftinatioa remain* a Jecret." The Emprefs of Ruffiaj. harrafred as fhe by war, pays a ftrift attention to any improvements either in the liberal or mechanic arts; the conftrHCler of a coeleflial globe, with all the Southern conftellations that were not iong fmce obferved at tke Cape of Good-Hope, hat been very liberally rewarded by her. Arts have been brought to the htgheft perfection where tr fpirit of emulation has appeared ; this fpirit th� Emprefs has very judicioufly and politically promoted. An eftafette arrived at Vienna on the rithinft. fufpen4ing all the marriage ceremonies till further orders, in confequence of one of the Neapolitan Prin�efl"es having been attacked with the ague. An alarming fire happened on the ifland of Cronltadt on the 5th current. A matt-warehoufe, adjoining to a large deal-yard, having by force accident taken fire, which burnt fo fuiionfly, that the whole, together with the greateft part of the deals on the ifland, were cemfumed. This lofs, it is fuppof*d, will chiefly fall, �pon the Brkifh As in the Gazette decent rejourning was ordered, every body was allowed to regu^te their appearance by their owrl ideas of decency. - Atcordingl.y the appearances of yeilerdsy were rather anorr.a, lous, and indeed, to be cooiidered as decent njournin^ fome\vhat ludicrous. There wer^few whofe drels did not exhibit a portion of black, but fometimes whimficaity contrafted with other co-te�r*r fo that it wasJiificult ifkibmte cafes to de- | termine wither the mourninj or tlie mixed drefs was predominant. Though m Europe the ordinary colour far mourning jb black, yet in China it is white; in Turkey ft is blue; in Egypt k is yellow; in Ethiopia brtwn.   Each country has its reafons for each particular colour ; black denotes the privation of life, as beirfg.the privlation of light; white denotes purity ; bluf expreffes the felicity which, the deceafed is wished to enjoy'; yellow, that dgRth is the end of all human hopes, in regard to leaves that fill, and flowers that fade; J. and brown-denotes the earth in which the de-.Ceafed is depofited.   The ancient Spartan and Roman ladies ufed to mourn in 'while. The following is the Infcripticn on the Dukb of Cumberland's Coffin. , Depojitum Illttftrifiimi Hbnrici FredeHici de Brunf-Iwick*Lunenburg, Ducis Cutnbria et Strathnnics, Comilis Dublin//*-, NcbiiiJJimi Ordinis Perifcelidis Equit}s, Filii ^uarfogeniti IlluJlriJJimi Frederici Prine\pii IFallite, def*n3i, et Fratris Auguftijfi-mi et Potentijimi Georgii Tertii, Dei Gratia Mag** Rvitfitinite, Francis, et Hibtrnia Regis,' Fidci Defer, pris.

Among the poffefTions of the lr-te Duke of Cumberland there was a very capital colls&ion of mufiCr, antl in this collection feme manufcript com-p'oft|ions of the higheft celebrity. The muiical instruments alfo belenging to his Royal Highnefs were" numerous.and valuable, having been pur-cha/ed under the-for, ?Jon of the firfl judges and at %great expence.' A geneiil roiflake has taken place in ftating the imihedT'ate'caofe of the- death if his lace Royal H!fchnef3 the Dwke of Cumberland. From the beft authority, we- can declare, that neither the tracbie not the &$aphagsis -vere in the leaf! ulcerate^/and the 'vifcera cr.tirely were in perfect fapity? the -paldtt only was fo affected, and the r&ht lobe of Ae lungs was a mrfs of putn/ctney.

The 60th begins at the epoch,. when the Conful Aurelius fuhdued the rebels of Sardinia, after a very considerable flaughter, and went afterwards into Coriica to pttnifh thofe who had.bidden defiance to him. The 6ill book, opens with the foundation of Aix', io Provence, by the Pro-Conful L. Sextius, from whom that city took the name of Aquvas driving bt9 miftrefs and three other ladies near Woodford Wells, when they were ftopt by tw6 highwayraen^ He could not identify the freitAfes, of eithec^ef the prifoncrs, *s he faid they bid him keep his head turned frorsr 3iem during-the whole time they were robbiag the ladies. He defcribed one of tbe robbers a* being on a bay horfe, and the other- on a bkek mare. The' horfes on which the prifoners were taken exactly correfponH with this defcription. Mr. Clark faid, that he was on Friday, aboft three miles on the London fide of Woodfori Wells ; when hearing the cry of Stop Thief, k� joined about eight or nine horfemen in purfuit of the robber*, and in Old-flreet came up with Spencer, whoitt he fecured. * The other priibner was taken by a Mr. Parfoni near Battle Bridge. On them were found loaded piflols, and withia Spencer's hat a piece of black filk was (ewed, which he occafronally let down and hid his face 5 the other had a filk handkerchief pinned withia his hat for the fame purpofe. They were committed for re-examination, vrhea the ladies robbed will attend. They are both very young men. Tyler, who has kSTgbeerr advdrtifed, wkh a reward for apprehending him, On ftr/picion of his hav--ing committed feveral forgeries, particularly onSic Benjamin Hammett, was on SaturdaymetbyCharles Jealous, one of the officers of the Bow-llreet police, in Long-acre. Tyler was ori horfeback ; when Jealous attempting to hty hold of the bridle, he fpurred his hcHr, and went ofFat full gallop. The. officer, who is lame, purfued him, crying " flop thief." He was at length knocked off his horfe in Lincoln's-Inn Fields, but efcaped by running cUnvn Holbom.   The horfe was fecurtd. . The Coroner*?'jury at Margate have fat on the bddy of the late Mr. Stephens, and brought in their verdict Manslaughter. On Friday three perfons were convicted In the penalty of 20s. each f:r bullock hunting, before the fitting Alderman at Guildhall. On Friday night, or early on Saturday morning, the counting-houfe of Mr. Francis RurSe, brewer, of Weft-ftree't, St. Ann's, Soho, was-broke into and robbed of near 20I. in ca/h.
