LONDON. Yeftcrday their Majeities, Princefles Royal, Au-gufta, Elizabeth^ and 6ophia, with the feveral attendants^ went,to the Chapel at Windfor Caftle, where they hdard divine fervice, and a farmon by the Canon Refidentiary. The Royal family afterwards viiited the two younger Princefles at the Lower Lodge, where the Princefs Amelia is under inoculation tor the fmall-pox; and afterwards returned to the Queen's Lodge to dinner. In the afternoon they went to the apartments at theJpaftle,'an'd drank tea; and from thehce appeared on the Terrace, where the company were numerous and brilliant. The Duke and Duchefs of Devonfhire, the young Marquis of Hartington, and the reft of the Liluftrious party arrived at Devonihire-houfe in perfeft health on Saturday evening. Some difpatches were received in town on Saturday night, which mention that Earl Howe, with the fleet, were arrived fafe at the Chops of the Channel, with a tolerable wind out. Extract of a Letter from Plymouth, Aug. 19. " Yefterday morning the Winchelfea frigate fell in with the grand fleet, fleering to the Southward j and this morning a DarVilh fhip arrived at this port* the mader of which reports he fell in with the fleet to the Weftward of this port lail night, and was very near one man of war, which, from the defcription, mult be the Cumberland of 74 guns." Extraii of a Letter from Chatham, Aug. .20. " Tuefday morning one Thomas Martin, a houfe-carpenter, of this yard, being at work on board the Leviathan, a new fliip of 74 guns, now upon the flip here, difcovered a bag, concealed i;i a temporary cabbin, which contained about a pounds and quarter of combufiibles. ((This cirenrr.-Ilance has fpread much alarm, and occafioned a good deal of converfation here. The fhip has been fmce diligently fearched by the officers of the Yard, but no further difcovery has been made." , A Treafury warrant has jail bc?a figned, for allowing to liarl Gower 3000I. in lieu of a ,-of plate, as Ambafladtjr to the Court of France. The quantity of plate given by Government to every Ambafiador. Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary ^to foreign Courts, oh his appointment", is 5893 ounces of ,,'filver,. or, as it is termed, white plate, and 1066 ounces of gilt plate. Early' on Monday morning a duel was fought in the Phcenix Park, Dublin, between C-s H- -n, and N-s W-n, Efqrs. It being agreed that they fhould fire at the fame time, Mr. H.'s fin't (hot flightly grazed hisadver-fary in the ri ht fide without penetrating it-but Mr. W.'s did-not take place. On the fecond fire being difcharged without any eftciSl on either fiie, the feconds interfered, and not without fome difficulty accommodated the. difference. It is (aid to' have arifeh from fome apprehended indecorum to a Lady, who was a friend of tbe former Gentleman's. On Saturday, at one o'clock in the day, Lady Houghton and another Lady were (lopped in their chariot by a Angle highwayman, on the Edgware-road, who prefented a piilol, and robbed them of their purfes and watches. The generally credited report of the lofs of a Margate hoy; propagated through the publip prints, we are extremely happy in contradicting. We have reafpn to believe it arofe from a malicious mifreprefentation. N DIED]. Lately, at fchool, to the great grief, of his Lordihip and relations, the eldefl fon of the Right Hon.
