Yeflerdav rend" i'Xf-jinet -j Council was held at the Duk..- of Leeds's of!ice, Whitehall, which was attended by the Lord pre-fident, Lord Privy Seal, the Chancellor of the Exchcauer, two Secretaries of State, and Lord Hawkelbury. At four o'clock the Council broke up, when the Duke of Leeds ferit out fummonfes ^ to feveial Members of the Houfe of Peers, to attend at his Grace's office, Whitehall, on Wednefday evening, when the Duke will read the fpeech, which his iv|ajeily will make to both Houfes of Parliament on Thurfday next. The Council which was held on Friday at St. James's had for its object., among other things, the reading of his Majelly's Speech on the opening of the Parliament. It will be privately read again in Downing-dreet on Wednelday morning, and the fame evening at the Cockpit; previous to which Mr. Pitt entertains a party of about thirty friends with a dinner, at his houfe in Downing-iixeet. - We have been favoured by a gentleman at Luxembourg with' the following particulars of the routing of the army of the Patriots : " On New-Year's-day, General Van-der-merfch advanced to take poffeflion of the village of BafTogne, then occupied by the Auitrians under the Baron de Beaulieu. He marched his army in order of battle, and as foon as he had got within muflcet (hot of the Audriaus polled in the village, he faluted them with a volley, but fo ill directed, that not a man was killed, and only one wa*. wounded. The falute was returned by a difcharge of two pieces of cannon, which had the effect, of throwing the Patriots into a panic. General Van-der-merfch, who appeared to have formed his meafures well, and to have a good profpecl of fuccefs, if he had had better (bldiers under his command, had the mortification to fee his ranks all broken, and his troops difperfed and nying in all directions. Nothing that he could .fay or do, could prevail on them to raily ; and he had the additional mortification to fee 600 of his men throw away their arms, that they might be the better able to run. The arms of thefe- 600 men fell into the hands of Baron Je Braulie-u. The flight of the Patriots was fo precipitate, that the Auitrians were not able to make more than three prifoners, of whom one was a Major, of the name of Breyden, the other two u/^rc privates. One c.f them was .fUfcovered to be a deferter from the regiment of Wirtemberg, in the Emperor's army, ar.d. a:, fuch he was hanged. Trie Major and the other prifoners wore treated with humanity." Extrad of a Letter from Mons, Jan. 9. *' The Drtke of Aremberg, the late Grand Bailie of Hainank, arrived here on the 2d inftant. His arrival was announced by the ufua! demodulations of joy, viz. the ringing of bells, firing of guns, &o, Wnen he approached the city, upwards of 4000 citizens, attended by the Burgefs Guard, went out to meet him, and conducted him in a kind of proccinon to the State Houfe, where he was complimented by the States and. Magistrates for his heady adherence to the patriotic caitfe ; while the people, equally grateful, though lefs eloquent, expreff:-'d their prasks by bonfires, &c. ant a general illumination throughout the town at-night." By advice from Trieite we learn, that the Pacha of Scutari returning from his unfortunate expedition agaiull the'Croates with but half his forces, and they almot ^-urnlicd to death by con-th:v>ed fatigue and w.-int, was purfued' for fome time, and at length overtaken by a cornpleat and numerous body of the Montenagrians ; that they came to an engagement, in which he was routed with the greateft partof his army ; and' that> accompanied by a very inconfiderable number of his troops, he was beholden lor his fafety to a precipitate retieat. On Saturday evening the hew-born fon of the Duke and Duchefs of Leeds was baptized at their Grace's houfe in Grofvenor Square, by the names of Sidney Godolphin- The fponfors wi-re, Lord Vifcount Falmouth, Lord Herbert, and Lady Godolphin, reprefented by Lady Mary Ofborne. The ceremony was performed by the Lord Bifhop bf London. Mr. Mailings, the gentleman who claims the Huntingdon Peerage,'is' an apothecary df eminence in Dubl n: to him the famous JJarringtoh is laid to have ferved his appreriticefhip. The excenfion of the Herring Fifliery, although an oisj.-ct of great importance, will probably never be carried to the extent projected" by its moit fanguine partifaus: a market feems lobe wanting. The quantity of fajt herring's con-fumed in this coun'ry is very inconfiderable. The Dutch have decidedly an advantage in the difpofal of theirs, having the immehfe empire of Germany at their,, where the greater part is. fold, and of the navigaH; river* to which country they are a]moit twclulively nolicfii-d. But even the Dutch Honing i'ilhery is greatly inferior to what it was ; the inhabitants of Sp.tin, Portugal,'and the Italian States, who formerly purchafed great quantities of Dutch Herrings-, now preferring the fait cod of Newioutidland. Letters from Lyons have brought an account of Ext rati of a Letter from Chatham, Ja?t,.i$. " Laft week a young gentleman from London, aged 18, eloped with a young lady, aped 16, the youngell daughter of Captain,0gilvie (a half-pay Captain of the marines here) on a matrimonial excurfion 10 Flanders, .in the Emperor's (at lead the Patriots') diftrict, where they were married. They returned to this place on Monday lall. The .gentleman has no fortune at prefentin his pofleflion, but has a dependence, on the death of his mother; arjd the lady has not the lead expectation." An approved method cf'� dcjlraying Weovils.- The imell of loblters is fatal to thefe voracious infects; loblters have been thrown alive among wheat infected with weovils,' and in a Ihort time the walls of the barn were covered with them ; if the lobders be left till they become putrid, the infects will all die> and the corn be entirely cleared of- them. One Jackfon, a hog-butcher, at Eait-moor, near Stoke-ferry, is co�mitted to Norwich CalUe on a violent fufpicion of robbing the Lynn mail; feveral bills taken ont of the mail have been traced up to him, one of which led in a Angular manner to the difcovery.
