HE King of Sweden embarked on board die ^madls yacht on the evening of the 26th inft. and fell dowrft the channel on his^wfcy to Finland, but finding the wind 1.^ unfavourable he came on fhore again the next day, and did not finally fail 'till the 28th in the morning. Four frigates and fome fmaller veffels have fceen craifing for fome time, in order to protect the paffage of the armed veffels prepared in the different ports for the coafting fleet, and with a �view to fecure the prior poffeffion of the promontories of Porkala and Hango-Udd. After this point was obtained, the Baron de Cederflram, �with two frigates and a cutter, proceeded to the little town and fort of Roderwick, fituated at a faiali difMnce. The igarrifon, confiding of a few invalids* could make no refiftance, and a capitulation was entered into, by which it was iti-pulated, that 4000 rubles fhould be paid for the franfbm of the town, and that all the public ilores, ind a warehoufe, containing a considerable number of uniforms, were burnt. T'his blow was ftrack on the i6th inftant, and M. de Ceder-ftrsem returned on the 17th to Hango-Udd.

The intention of diffolving the Parliament lieniij now to be poftponed, at leaft till after all the bufinef* of the Seflion is fully gone through. It will be fo late in the year before this is done, that an autumn diflblution feems probable. General Vander Merfch behaved with an uncommon degree of temper and fortitude, in a late-tranfa&ion: General Schoenfeldt having been difpatched by the States to the City of Namur, at the head of a confiderable body of troops, was tnet by M. Vander Merfch, at the head of an equal number. The two armies having advanced in light of each other, M. Vander Merfch fent a trumpet to General Schoenfeldt, to demand the r*aibn of fuch ho/file appearances. Several mef-fages were then exchanged, and at length a conference took place, which ended in an agreement betwixt the two armies, and they accordingly jnarched into Namur together in a peaceable manner. It is reported that M. Vander Merfch, fin his arrival at Namur, was arrefted, and obliged to give his parole to furrender himfelf to the War Department, and he accordingly arrived here lait night, with his Adjutant, Mefemfkcr. Several Othef patriots of dillinguilhed rank are alfo in Cuflody, among whom is the Count de Rofiere, Governor of Namur, and the Count de la Mark. An inflammatory hand-bill was lately circulated hf fame erf the partizans of the States, tending to raife the public indignation againft the Dutch patriots, many of whom, very opulent, have been fettled here for fome time. They were exceed--Mgly alarmed, and applied for public protection ; but although the States publiihed a placard, intimating their entire difapprobation of the hand-till, the Hollanders, not being mentioned, were doubtful of their fafety, and they are departing the country with the utmoft precipitation." A manifefto lately arrived from Leopold, with further proportions, in which he gives the Con-fcrefs ten days to deliberate. And it is generally believed that an expedition into the country is refolved on immediately* The following letter from General Vander Merfch is this moment printed, addrefled to the States: " My Lorbs, *' I am" come herein purfuanct�of your command ; crimes of the blackefl kind are imputed to me.-If I am guilty, let my head fall; if I �am innocent, as my confeience teftifies, I ought to be exculpated.-Death or reparation of my honour is then what I demand." The Recorder of London, the Counfcl, the Jury, and Ae feveral Suitors, attended the*Coun-cil.Chamber at Guildhall on Thurfday, for the piftrpo e of holding the regular Quarter Seffion for the city of London j but after waiting many fours', and difpatching many meffengers different vayj, kwas found impoffible to colled a fufficient '>umber of Aldermen together to form a Cctart j conference of which the feffion wa� loft.
