From THUR SDAY, jAUtfAIfV 14, to S A T U %T> A Y, ,.'UR politicians have for Ibifte days been iat a lofs to divine the motive which has occafioned an order to be fent for it battalions to march into Gallicia. Thefe battalions, all compofed of Hungarian troops, are drawn from Upper Hungary, \ here they were quartered. Although the fudden x.;arch of "thefe troops is yet a myftery to the public, a few weeks will explain it; and we may in tie interim regard the reports of ah apprehended Kevolution in Ga!ricia as abfeUitdyialfe. The I wo Generals who are ordered to GaHica to command the above-mentioned troop* are Count 'Verueflas Colleredo and M. de Karaczay; ths ibrmer is arrived here front Belgrade, and the ^atter is in Waliachia With the Prince de Cobourg. *)he accounts from that province Ynfitem us, that Ae inhabitants continue to ^VeJ&e gyepteft iarks of attachment to the ImpertgfeR& to whom iey are conftantly relating inftaocefe of the un-Jeard of tyranny which the Hofpodar fvfam*Ofejii jearu ui iyr*nuy wmv.ii uic tluwnwi ivjamwpn*.-* 01 martial activity, ana leverai nave maepent jas exercifed there for thefe four year* 'pafts I- focmncsx but who fcorn, when fo excellent The rnoft illuftrious houfes in the country are ds~f folate, their Chiefs having all been baniflled, to the Archipelago, under pretext that they had rendered themfelveS fufpe&ed> but, in reality, jto -have forae pl&\iftbte r**fd� for letting their jpofTeflions. The number fcf thefe unfortunate texiles is very confiderable', and their .relations are in great fear for them. Since the Porte has learnt the conqueft of Waliachia, mari)r diftrifts of that prorince, principally thofe of Krajova, are ^entirely ruined 5 others, on the contrary, where the Ottoman trcops have not encan�ped> are Abundantly provided with provifions. Venice, Dec. 3. We have accounts, from Tla-3gufa that they have learnt, that, the Pacha of Albania having arrived at Serao, the capital of Bofnia, with 20,000 men, expended 30,000 roubles to equip his troops in che compleateft and Imoft a1'�"'ntageous~ manner. During his itay at Scrao, fome of his men having robbed a garden, the owner complained to the Pachai who caufed the delinquents to be arretted immediately and brought before him ; when, 'after reproachjhg, ] them feverely, he had their heads cutoff to i he. inumber of 14. Aft^r this execution, his preparations being finiihed, he proceeded on his march �with his army for Banjiluka. A veffel arrived from the Levant informs us, that the divifion of the Ottoman fleet which is Cruizing in the Archipelago, cait anchor the beginning of laft month "at the irland of Paros, and the fmall Algerine fqciadrbn at Scio.

Yefterday his Royal ifeghnefs the Prince of Wales went to York Hb6fe to fee the Duke of York, who was fo well reclrVered as to be able' to take a ride with the Prince. T,he Duke of Clarence is not fo well. Among the feveral peculiar and necefiary compliments paid to the different branches of the Royal Family, one is> that let an invitation be given ever fo late^. the etiquette is, certain at^ tendance. -- "Should any previous engagement have occured, of ever fo long a date, or of ever fo much confequence, any lefs than a direct dif-penfation of fuch engagement, would be confi-dered as an affi-ont, or ill-breeding.

He is already complimented with the command of a Cdmpany of foot. The whole of tne party were very handfomely received at Bruflels by the Commandant of the garrifon. The conduct of the Ring of Sweden in railing up the Commons toafharein his council, though it h Calculated to give him a formidable ally for the prefent againft the Nobleffe, will yet finally produce the proper diminution of the royal-office. It was by fuch a -meafure on the part of our own Kings, that the people were at length able to aflert their juft rights. May it be fo fn every part of the world I The French claim from us the merit of having invented the fleam, engine, becaufe a certain phi-lofopher of their nation obferved the effect of fteam in forcing up the lid of a coffee pot, and obferved, that fomething of advantage to leience might be drawn from it.

A fracas has happened between the Commander of the Wivcnhoe cutter, Captain Muhnings, of the Cuftoms, and a cutter belonging to the Excife, both itatkmcd on the Eflex coaft, which feems likely to involve thofe two Boards of Revenue in a difagreeable litigation.

The difp-ite is faid to have been carried fo far as to produce a challenge from the Cuitom-houfe cutter to fettle the difference by their refpedtiye guns. This, however, was not acceded to by the l!xcife people, who thought it more prudent to report the whole proceedings to their. Board, than to rifk their veffel and lives in fo fmgular a conflict 1 ..
