General Evening Post (Newspaper) - July 8, 1790, London, Middlesex ( L O N Price Four Pence. From T H U R S DAY, July 8, to  $A T tJ R DA Y, July io, 1790. 8857 )0M - : � 4r FRIDAY, July 9. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE.: Vibkna, June 9. ^j^^p ,,t HOUGH the Wfc letters E>/~^%^$C>- from Corrftantinopie af-fe�t a warlike tone, it is evident, that the people* who are under the Tor-. kilh. Government wiih ardently for peace. The UV^^^W^'^ firft divifion of the fleet, 'n coni'equencj of the ^-0?5^�^^'^>V:y' prefling orders" of his Highnefs, has left the Arfenal, and on the firlt of hh month was at anchor in-the Canal; it confifts of five caravelles, as many frigates, and other veflels of a foialler force. The fecond divifion was to leave the Arfenal in a fortnight after ; and the third by the end of the month. Thefe delays are entirely occafioned by the want of failors, .who , cannot be procured, arid Government is obliged to employ the Afia'ticks to man their fliips, as they did laft year. The fame letters make mention of a fmall fquadron of armed veflels which is cruizing in the' Arclvpelago, and which has been fent there by the Barbary Powers to fupport the Porte againft the Ruilian privateers, who, by thefe means, can attempt nothing in thofe feas. The day bjfora yefterday a courier extraordinary'arrived here from Madrid, who delivered 'his difpatches into the hands of his Majerty. As nothing has yet tranfpired of the contents, our politicians conjeclure tint their purport is to ri-queit our *ood offices to accommodate the differences between England and Spain; but that is very improbable, as the Ho'ufe of Auftria is not at pre fent at leifure to charge itfelf with fuch a negotiation; others, on- the contrary, imagine them to be relative to fome family arrangements., in which our Miniiter interefts himielr very �much. Vienna, June 23. The following account is published here by authority : " On the 2d inftant our troops,, having taken �poiTeflion of the city, inverted the fortrefs of Chi-urghero. " The fame evening the Turks made a fally, but were driven back. In the evening of the third, our batteries had commenced a brifk fire, irad had filenced fome of the neareft batteries of the enemy. " The Turks continued to make, r.ight and day, at leaft two Tallies againll our � trenches and batteries, but were conftantly resulted by our foldiers, who advanced within eighty paces of their glacis. On the 3th at night the enemy having received a reinforcement onthe fide towards Rudzuk, attacked our troops, forced cur trenches, and feized the artillery of our batteries. Prince de Cobourg, finding it was im-poffib'.c to recover our entrenchments, refolved to raife the fiege, and encamp at the diitauce of two leagues. Generals Anefefs and Thurn, w,';o commanded the trenches, were both killed, which prevented our knowing ihe fuperiority of the enemy in time to fu-ccour the troops under their command. " 'I he returns of the killed and wounded not being made out when the courier fet OiT, Prince de Cobourg will fend it hereafter. In the mean h"uckbiirgh, furrounded with Paint and Laurel branches. On the. other ficf^of the blade*, under the refpe&ive Crefts of the Knights of the Sh re, is a Laurel and Ribbon entwined; round the the motto Rex Populufque cvaleant, below and within a wreath is the date of the period, when, by the unanimous voice of ihe Freeholders of Warwickshire; our pfeferit Kegfrefentatives wefre a third time elected." A flaocking affair had like tr> have happened at a gentleman's houfe on Richmond Hill, forrie time ago, by fome arfenic being put into fome bottfel of brandy ; which was found out by the footmaii before the family had drunk much of it. Ufiori examination it was proved to be the houfe-maid/ a woman whom tliey had taken into fhe hoafe oufof charity. In her defence Ihe fald fhe had no intention to hurt any body, but only meant to fpoil the brandy.
