Warfavj, Jan. 6. The Preliminary Articles cfa Treaty between this Republic and the Court of Berlin are agreed bn, and were ' " ' ' patched to Berlin by the Department of Foreign Affairs. The particulars have not tranipired. By certain information from Jafly, we find that the conferences on the fubjeft of peace, fo ftrongly advifed by the Grand Vizir, are on the point of being opened, without the^ interference of any mediator. Mr. de Bulgakow, one of the Plenipotentiaries for Raffia, has joined Prince Potem-kin, to whom the Emprefs has chiefly confided this great bufinefs. Vienna, fan. 13. Ficld-ManTial Laudohn, who has for i'o many years efcap:d the perils of war, to which he has been fo often, expofed, ran a great rifk of his life a few nights fince, whilft he was afleep, had not the watchfulnefs of a little dog which lay in his apartment awaked hinv wh*n he immediately difcovercd the adjacent room to be on fire, which was, however, pre--fehtly extin^uifhed without doing much damage Paris, "fan. 15. There has been a commotion at Verfailles on account of breaJ^ but happily, owing" to the wife andfpeeJy precautions taken td' quell it, was attended with no bad confequences. Tne martial law has been proclaimed at Ver-. failles, where the National Guards are -daily rer lieved by frefli detachments from Paris. . Five or fix of the ringleaders have been taken; two of *whom were drummers in the National Guards* and were difmifled for their bad behaviour. The Municipality of Paris at firft granted the people's requeil, and lowered the price of bread, but fome days after it waS rellored to its former price. The example of revolt given at VerfailleS has had no effect on the people cf Paris. All the Fauxbdurgs are quiet, owing to the plenty'which prevails there, through the beneficence of their Majeiiies, and the mildnefs of" the feafon. But the interior part of the city is not fo peaceable �; the people refort in crowds to the Chat:let, and feem fearful lell the law fljould acquit M. de Be-fenval, whom they flill perfilt in thinking guilty. The infurrcction was fo' great -on Monday, that the Magifcrates were obliged to adjourn their . feffion, and retire; the National Guard, however, difperfeJ the mob, and on Wednefday every thing was quid.

The combatants neverthelefs immediately went out of the jurif-dl&fon, as well as the county, and in a field a little above Bottley, after a very fhort contelt, Beafley proved victorious, having, among other injuries, fraclured one rib of his anbgonilt.
