Hirun, Jan. 11. ^-'^^T^T^^O:-.. **E' Pruffian army has been augmented twenty-ufand men within months ; it is they are only y'l' to compleat the different rS>,^|J^fefj/-7g regiments. J^;v an a^iance with the Court *'V '�'sis'.-* of Berlin, it was ratified to the Republic, that Pruflia could not Iiilen to it-while the army of Poland was fo weak, and incapable of ading with effett, or affiiting its allies againft a powerful enemy ; but if they would augment their troops to fixty thoufand men, Pruflia would enter into a treaty.of alliance- with, them botU offensive and defeniive. _-. " Tne Polifh army now exceeds fixty thoufand men, and the promifed treaty is on the tapis. The King has affigned ten thoufand- Tfcalers put of his private bank, to have his camp equipage put in compleat order ; and it is aniverfally thought that the approaching Spring will announce a war almoit general, notwithstanding the overtures and negociations of peace, which at Conftantinople was the eWt&. of panic at the takinr of Belgrade and Bender; but the Porte, now informed of the Revolution in the Low Countries, and of other citciunftances, will not be defirous of accommodation during the winter. Rotie d-iv, Jan. 18. The Patriotic party be* gins to lncw itfelf again in many parts of Holland, which fixes the atte ti m of the Mini iters of the jtlifferent Provinces ; they are bold enough even-to diltinguifh themfelves by their cockades, and 'declare openly, tnat if the revolution of their heighbours fucceedj they will jeja th.eir.rel/es to the ftandard of Liberty.

" f-d �. - Though the Addrefs of Thanks for the Speech \ from the Throne paffed here through both Houfes of Parliament without debate, yet in Ireland, that from his Majefty's Reprefentative met with much and violent oppofition. Mr. Gratt&n, Mr. Egan, and Mr. Corry, diftinguiflied themfelves greatly by their oratory on this occafion. The two firlt were particularly fevere on Admini-ftration, and the conduc> of the late Lord-Lieu- \ tenant; the laft as warmly defended them. At lait, after much heat, which, by the interference, however, of the Speaker, produced an explanatory converfation, the queftion being put, the Addrefs was carried unanimously. The King of Pruflia, at Memel, has added fiVe per cent, duty on timber and other goods exported. The troubles in Hungary are a little appealed by a declaration from the Emperor to convene a Diet, and confirm the privileges of the-Province. General Vandet Marfch, it is faid, has retired from the command of the Patriotic army in difguft. On Monday arrived at Hull from Cppenhagen, after a tedious paffage of eigjfrF weeks, -in the Favourite, Hugh Ellior, Efq; his Majefly's Envoy Extraordinary and Minifter PtempotegStiary to the Court of Denmark. * Extra.8 of a letter from Plymouth* Jan. 26. " The following may be depended upon as a fa�t, which calls loudly for fome fpeedy regulation. There are this Port fixteen {ail of Colliers from Sunderland and Newcaftle, out of which only feven are permitted to deliver their cargoes for the fupply of this town, Stonehoufe, and Plymouth ."Dock,, and its very paprious.neigbibQurhood r the ether nine fhips are all laid up with their cargoes on board, and the Matters prohibited, under the penalty of zool. to expofe to fale any coals, while there are fuven fhips in the Port on delivery, that being the itipulated number of veffels to deliver, in order to enhance the price from 12s. per quarter to 18s. It is therefore to be hoped that the Legislature will, this Seffion of Parliament, take fuch Heps as wi.l in future put an end to fuch iniquitous combinations, by relieving the poor in this popu-Iohs town and neighbourhood, with many others of their fellow-fufferers in different parts of the kingdom, from the exorbitant^ high price of that 1 Article." Extrad of a Letter from Plymouth, Jan. 27. " The new dock in our yard, which has been upwards of five years in building, is nearly com-pleated; and is allowed, to be the beft dock in the univerfe, for the two following;reaibn*, viz. .hirli,. it is dug out of a f lid rock j and, fecoiidly, it will contain twenty inches of water in depth more than any other dock in England. It gave their Majefties, when hef e laft fumiJier, the high eft fatisfacYion, and who ordered h to be called the Queen's dtfek." SxtraS of a letter from fcamfgate, Jan. tj. " Laft night about 11 o'clock the brigantineXa-Vater, Wolff Frederick-van-der-Wifch, Mailer, front Bremen to JJodrdeiux, with a cargo of wheat and "beans, was wrecked on the North fand head. The mailer and cre> were with great difficulty faved) they carrie on fhore here this morning in one of our town boats: the vefTel is gone to pieces, and the wind blows (b hard,,that little hopes are entertained of any thing being faved out of the wreck." _ Yefterday the Judges met in the Treafury Chamber, Weftminfter-hall, aod chofe their Circuits for the enfuing Lent Affizes, as follow, viz. Northern. Lord Kenyon and Mr. Jtiftice Buller. Norfolk. Lord Loughborough and Mr. juftice Afhhurft. Midland.; Lord Chief Baron Eyre and Mr. BarOn Thbmfon.

The gentleman who gave, we too much fear, the fatal blow, faid he was ruined by his antago nift, and tfiat he was the caafe of his lofing his commiflion, and fifteen hundred-pounds, and, at the fame line profeffed a great happinefs in having the pletfure to meet him-He was not taken into cuftody. Saturday evening a trunk, containing a variety of apparel to a confiderable amount, the property of Mr. Hill, of Gower-flreet, was cut from behind a poft-chaife, near Bedford-fquare.

Monday Mr. Thomas Wickworth, of Tooting, in Surrey, was (topped near Ballam, on the Toot-ing-road, by two highwaymen, who robbed him of his watch, and near 30s. On Sunday evening, about half after eight, two gentlemen coming down Pancras-lane were j huftled by a gang of fellows that were driving t an ox before them. Bath of them loll their watches, and one of them his hat and wig. As this occurred-at a time much top early for the | arrival of the beafts in Smithfield, there is too much reaibn to believe (from the inactivity of the people in fuppreflmg thefe practices) that it was hired for the purpofe of d-predation. Wednefday morning the houfe of Mr. Dun-ton, of Uxbridge, was broke open and robbed of plate, &c. Early yefterday morning Mr. William Shepherd, of Lambeth, was knocked down near the Two Sawyers, at Lambeth, by a perfon, who robbed him of his watch, feals, &c.
