Mr. Chifwell, one of the new created Baronets, was ftated in our paper of yefterday to be worth half a million.-A correspondent, who is connefited witli the family, and better informed on the fubjecT, affirms, that he is worth confider-ably more than a million. He received, at two different times, from the death of two uncles, of the name of Mailman, 8oo,oocl. His whole fortun-* wiH come to the children of Sir Francis Vincent, our Refident at Venice. The late fudden capture of JBrulTels is net to be confidered as a miraculous furprile, or as effeded by sway military ftratagem.

The National AfTembly of France have decreed, that all the foldiers of the heretofore Bel-gic army in the French territories ftwll b� enjoined, in, the fpace of 44 hours, to take their arms to the regiiler of the Municipalities of the place* inhere they mall be at the time of the publication of th� Decree \ that after the expiration of fuch delay every foldier of the quondam Belgic troops, who (hall be found with arms, (hall be pnnimed by a confiscation of his arms, and even by imprifonment; that if among thefe foldiers there be any French, there (hall be granted to them a fum fufficient to enable them to return to their refpecHve; and laftly, with refpeft to the foldiers who are not natives of France, that they (hall be conduced under a fufficient guard beyond the Frontiers of the kingdom. A decree lately paffedin France for reftoring to French Refugees and their heirs all their property, upon condition of their returning and taking the civic oath, it is faid will entitle MelTrs. La Touche of Dublin, Dobree of Guernfey, and Le Mefurier of London, to (feme very largo inheritances. A letter was lately wrote by the French AiTemi bly to Cardinal Bernis, the French Ambailador at Rome, requeuing to know if he was difpofed to take the Civic oath, and fixing a term for his anfwer, with an alternative in cafe of his refufal or filence, that his Bifhopric, and its appendages, would be fequeftrated.-His Eminence, in thptrue clerical and ariftocratic fpirit, returned an anfwer, in which he mentioned, that having taken an oath to God and the King, he did not think himfelf bound to take any other, and that as to threats, having but a' ihort time to live, he was content to die a poor Cardinal and Bifhop, and faithful to Gpd, the Holy See, and the King.

The Sugar Refiners are very felicitous to obtain an increafe of the bounty upon the exportation of it when refined. Yet the ill elfeas of the prefent bounty to all but the Sugar Refiners are fuch, that the exportation forcibly produced by it authenticity_____._______ the Victualling-Board, as regulated by the balance bill; but the commiffion of 6i. per quarter on the grain furniihed from his own ftores is dif-allowed, it is to be enquired into by the mafter. The Grand Jury at Dover have thrown out the bill of indictment preferred againft Mr. An-derfon forth*murder of Mr Stephens in a duel at Margate. William Whaley, Efq. who killed Dennis Kelly, Efq. in a duel fome time ago, was indidted for the murder laft week in Dublin, and acquitted for want ef profecution. On Wcdncfday a hovel belonging to Mr. Grant, of Towceder, was blown down by the violence of the wind, by which accident four cows which were under it at the time were killed j a barn at Blifworth was likewife blown down the fame day ; feveral tree* were alfo torn up by the roots, the thatch dripped off cottages, and many chimneys blown down, in different parts of the country, by the violence of the ftorm. About two o'clock on Wednefday afternoon a dreadful fire broke out at a carpenter's in St. Cuth-bert's lane, Bedford, occafioned by a chimney taking fire, and communicating to the thatch, which, aided by the violence of the wind, f&on fpread to other buildings, and caufed the greateft alarm for the fafety of all that part of the town, which coniifts principally of thatched houfes. It was, however, fortunately got under, after con-fuming 15 dwelling-houfes, and damaging two others. By this calamity about 35 poor families are reduced to great diftrefs. Yeilerday morning, about four o'clock, a fire broke out in the King's Arms public-houfe, Gravel-lane, Southwark, which deilroyed the fame, with moft of the furniture. Monday an over-driven bullock did confiderable mifchief in the upper parts of Weftminfter.

The lad was very much bruifed. On Sunday morning the body of a failor, with that of his landlady, were found murdered in their refpe&ive beds, at a lodging-houfe, in New Gravel-lane, Ratcliff-highway. The marder is fugpofed to have been perpetrated by a Portuguef� fvlor who lodged in the fame houfe, and has fince abfeonded. The Coroner's Inqueft fat on the bodies yefterday, and brought in their verdift " Wilful Murder, againft per/on or perfons unknown."

Defim** Hiertt which declares that the edtctof 1774,r** lative to marriages entered into betwixt Catholics and Proteftants in Alface, (hall only extend to the cafes of children born from the date of fuch edict* to the 27th of Aoguft lad ; and that with regard {ojnfancs bo+h fitrce the iaft period* and to ba born in future', their education (hall be regulated according to the plan prefcribed by the decree 0/ the 37th ^)f Augnft. Some complaints having been made by aMeni* ber, of the flow progrefs of the Committee of Liquidation, the Abb* Gouttss rofe and obferve4 that their labours bad been immeufc. That a variety of accompts remained to. be examined \ and that if'the AiTembly had a defire.that theif work mould be finiihed during the prefent feflion it would be necefiary to augment the number of examiners. The order of the day brought on the further difcuffion of the report 011 the fuppreflion of mini, ftorial officers. The minrfterial officers here meant are the Pi-ocureurt before the Courts of Law.-* They compofe fo numerous1 a corps, (above j 00.000) that it will be extremely difficult, if not impollible, for the nation, in its prefent disjoint�4 ftate, to find cam to fatisfy them for the lofs of their places. It is not improbable, therefore^ that they will be allowed to hold them for their lives, folely on this account. Several member*! delivered their fentiments, fr� and cm, bttt-no-thing final was determined upon. An addrefs was read from a fbciefcy of -the- * Friends of the Confutation at Autun, complain* ing of the feditious conduct of the Canons of th* cathedral of Autun, who had dared \o proteiV againft the decree of die 27th of laft month, relative to the ecclefi3ltical oath. Several other addreffes of a fimilar nature, pre** fented to the Affcmbly, evidently fhew that the fpirit of liberty is become predominant among th* people, and that clerical protefts. and anatbzmar> are now difregarded and defpifed. In the evening a queftion was agitated, whether or not a Director General mould be placed at the head of the board for filperintendiug bridges an . highways i1 In the courfe of the converfaribn which took phce, an obfervatlon was thrown out by a member, that it would not be proper tc�"determine that point, till the functions of the feveral officers of the board ihoald be ascertained, on which the queftion was adjourned. % M. L? Brun then propofed two articles a decree for defining the functions of feveral officers of the Board, which paflcd after a ihort debate. The Preildent informed the Affcmbly that advices had been received the preceding day from Perpignari, by a courier extraordinary, that an unfortunate hftair had happened in that city, is* which feveral excellent citizens had lo"ft thei* lives.
