" Here is the inteliigcnee we nave collected con-cernirig the causes of this strange war. " General bciiMETT.'tu (dead, a prisoner at Wciuiar) drew up a memorial, wrKten^w itii much, force, in which he e'tablislied, that, the Prussian army ought to regard itself as dishonoured ; that it w.iSj notwithstanding,- in a state to .beat the-French; and that it was necessiiry t�inake war. "General RuciiEr.

Prince I^ouis Frv.ini.vAND of ! I'lidssiA (killed) supportird it by every species of sarcasm. The ilcinie s[)read Ihrounh every head. The Duke of Biib.\-swici-:,(vvoiiiideiI very badly) a mail known only to l?c williout a will, nnd with-oiitdecision, was enrolled in the war-faction. In short, the memoir, tliii.s sn[)poHedj a\as presented to the Ki.n'o.. Tlie (|ueen" undertook to dispose tiili mind of the KiNf.-, and to make known to him what was thought of liiHi, S!u; feporfi-d to him that lie was not thought bravo, and that if lie did not make wiir, it was becaii.*;; ho was afraiil cif putting himself at the head of ghisariny. The Kixo, redliy as brave aiany PrusMan Prince, gave way, withoot ceasing to preserve tlic opinion that he Committed a great fault.

We have as yet, no news of a treaty between Prussiit and Russia, and it is certain, that up to this day, no Russian has appeared in the Prussian tcrritorv. In other respects the army desire much to see them : they will lind another Austerlitz in Prussia. " Prince Louis Fekdixaxtj of Prdssia, and the other Generals who have filIon under the first blows of the Ivreuch, arc at 'present mentioned as tiie principal movers in this incredible phrcnzy. The Kino, who has run all the chaiices of it, and who supports all the misftirtunes which Iwvc been the results of it, is of all men w hp have been d.-a\rn in by it, he who would have remained the most foreign to it. " There is at Lei psic such aqiiantity of English goods, that si.\{y millions have, been already offered to rjS'desni thciU'. It is asked what AviU England gain by ail this?

Great mischiefs may coaio upon 1-lunland: Europe will attribute them to the loss of that honest man and Mini.stcr, -who wished to govern by great and liberal ideas, and whom the English people will oile day; deplore with tears of blood.
