NATIONAL ASSEMBLY. Feb. q. ON Sunday and I.'onday the. Afiembly proceeded on the new cdvifion of the kingdom, which is now neaily completed. A decre.e was paffed, declaring the members of the feconA chamber of vacations of the Parliament of Brkany incapable of exercjjing the rights of aftive citizens, till they fhall have made a proper fubmiffion to the.Legiflarive Body. A plan was ptefented for carrying' into efFedl the abolition of the, feudal fyftem, and ordered to be printed. On Monday ^he W&" brothers AgaJJi were executed. Mails from Flanders. No perfon here dares Saturday Conjlcmtimpl:, Dec {peak cf peace, a3thcug]> it is much defired. The preparations which are making for a third carupaign are amazing. Tjey have ordered 4300 draught hories, and 2000' ammuni:ion waggons. Thefe freih preparations are attributed to the fturgeftions of certain European Powers. Vienna, Jan. 20. They write from Confhnti-Rcpl.e, dated the ill of December, that Haffan Pacha had only accepted the place of Grand Vizir, under the aJiuranse and facred promife of fcis Highnefs, that the command of the fleet lliould be refrored to him when he fhould quit the poll T)f Grand Vi/.ir. This anecdote is'not improbable, as it corxefponds with the great inclination that General has for marine affairs, and tha ex-ten five .power annexed to tjje charge of #rand Jk^ttiml. LONDON. Yefterday the King, Queen, and Princeffes, with the ufual attendants, went to the private Chapel in the Caille 3t Windfor, where they heard divine fervice and a fermon by Dr. Ma-jendie. The Royal Family will go no more to Chapel at Windfor till after Eaftcr Sunday. Saturday his Majefiy took the diverfion of flag-hunting, which was on the Buckinghamshire fide of the water. The day produced a good field. Saturday her Majeity and the three eleefr. Prin-ceiTes, after receiving vifits from the female Nobility till near one o'clock, fet cfFon an airing over St. Leonard's-hill, and a quarter pad four returned to the Lodge to dinner with the King. The King certainly goes to Hanover in July next. The Duke of York will accompany his Majefty, that Prince's prefence beino; as necef-fary in his Bifhoprick as the King's journey to his electorate. Yefterday at half paft eleven o'clock the Duke of Richmond waited on his Royal Hlghnefs the Duke of York, at York-Houfe, Whitehall,'Twith whom his Grace had a private conference for two hours and a half. Yefterday morning his Royal Highnefs the Duke of York muicered the Coldftreasn regiment of foot guards in the Birdcage-walk at half faff ten, when, by his Highnefs's order, a private who had deferted from the corps five times iv::s brought out of the hofpital belonging to the raiment, where 1.0 had beer, placed--, for..the cure of wounds he hnd received by being flogged three times; he had the halter round Ms neck, and a paper faftened on his back and breail, on which was inferibed " thief and de-ferter after having been led three times backwards forwards before the regiment, during which the brmd played the rogue's march, he was drummed out at Queen-fquare gate. His Royal Highnefs afterwards viewed the hofpital. Even at Evlofcow the fpirit of difcontent begins tc> fliew itfelf. Want and oppl'effion have wrought ori the moft mikrable of -the human race to fpeak out, and the NoblefTe have prefented a memorial, piaying for redrefs of their many grievances. The Emprefs has fent the inquifitor Schroikowfby to enquire into their hardihips. In the lrifh Eloufe of Lords, on Monday, the Duke cf Leinfler moved, that the advifer of ki:. Majclly, in the deprivation of Lord Strangford of a peniion, granted at the rcqueft. of thai Houfe, had adted difrefpedfuUy to the Houfe, and unccnjiituiiunaUy and undutifully to his Majefiy. This p; educed a debate, and on a divifion taking place, the motion was negatived by a majority of twenty Peers. There is no time fixed, as hath been mentioned in feveral of the papers, for the commencement of the Minifter's Levies, and it is rather expected, that he will entirely lay afule this cuflom. The Queen of Portugal, on the 17th of Dec. latl (her birth-day), abohfhed the Dime which was laid on all merchandize fabricated in the kingdom. There is now in the hands of an Eaft-India Agent a fingle ftone ring for fale, valued at twelve tboufandpounds. On the 16th of laft December was launched at Li/bon, a fhip of the line of 74 guns, called he Ccear de Jefas cj de Marie, and a frigate of 32 guns-the name of the former feems to border more on impiety than on religious bigotry. On Saturday came on in the Court cf King's-Bench, before Lord Kenyon, a eaufe which had excited much curiofity, and in which the vulgar error was,done away, of female praftitiorisrs in Midwifery having no right to ufe inlbrumeots. The plaintiff was a Mrs. Afh?on, a midwife, and a Mr. Walford, of the fame profeiTion, defendant ; the action was for defamation, and the Jury gave a verdi& for the plauituF in fixty pOands damage* The Siirem and the Dee.-The junction of thofe Rivers, through Ellefmere, is proceeding.

Jtahufy-A man of the name of John Williams, who loved and courted a girl of Dewlifh, in Devonihire, having obferved her in company with another man, was feized with fuch a fit of jealoufy, that he allured her to walk into the fields with him, when he ftrangled the unfortunate girl with hi) handkerchief. After that he conveyed the body to a co.v-houfei and concealed it under fome flfaw ; but it being difcovered the following morning, he was apprehended, and confeffed the fact. Thi* is an age of accommodation ; its polUefje endeavour? to unite the gieatcil contraries. Mr. Mendoza profelTcs to teach the art of breaking a ja^-jj bene without (becking the delicacy of the ladies. The proprietors of the great Lincolnshire ox, following- his example, inform the fair Sex that the creature is perfectly tame, and that the ladies may be accommodated with great conveniency from a one pair of flairs window. On Saturday, between three and four in the afternoon, ths poll for Lecturer of St. Botolph SiShopfgate, which commenced on Thurfday, finally clofec?. The numbers were, for Mr. Abdy 242; for Mr. Harrifon, junior, 370: on which he was declared duly elected. -A few days Since as Mr. Bennet, coal-merchant, of Ckriftchurch, Surrey, was firing at fome cats, which greatly damaged his garden, one of the creatures being enraged on receiving fome Shot, flew at Mr. Bennet and fattened on his throat. The cat with difficulty was destroyed, and we are happy to hear that Mr. Bennet is not dangeroufly hurt. - An old -maiden lady in KingSland-road, who 'lives as a reclnfe, without any attendant, and rc-yerfes the order of nature, by fubftituting night for day, and vice iierfa, was lately robbed by three men-, who very calmly took poffcifion of her kitchen fire, at her breakfaft hour, eleven o'clock at night, devoured her toaft and butter, and then proceeded to rifle the houfe, unm.olefr.ed, and we'fl away calmly, defiring her to.^Kten the door after them.
