The inhabitants of this city have, fmce the departure of the French troops from this ctiony, been in the utmcjil con-jfternation, and h,aye, in confequence, fent a petition to the King, representing their prefent de-fencelefs condition, and praying his Majelty to take their cafe into confideration. Vienna, "June 12. The day before yeilerday a ineflenger arrived from Berlin, who had been difpatched by the Pruflian Miniiter at Conilanti-nople, and immediately fent from Berlin here. It i* (aid> he brings propofals for peac2. In the mean time the negotiations continue between our Court and that of Pruflia ; notwithstanding- which the armies in Silefia are in motion, and many people are of opinion that war is inevitable. As foon as the news arrived here that the Bra-bancons had deiired afiiilance from Pruflia, a Council was held by his Majefty with all his Mi-iiiiters, when it was refolved to require a categorical anfwer from Pruflia upon this fubjett. Count de Podewils being dangeroully ill, the courier who arrived from Berlin the day before yeilerday delivered his clifpatches to Baron Ja-cobi, Miniiler from Brandenbourg, who immediately waited on his Majeily to give him a letter from the King of Pruflia. By what we can learn of the contents, the two Courts feem already to Jiave fettled the affairs of the Porte; the only difficulties which remain are in thofe relative to the indemnification to be made to Poland for Thorn and Dantzick. The Diet of Hungary has commenced its feflion, which will be very turbulent. The higher Clergy are endeavouring to rellore what they term the reign of St. Stephen, which is tobanifh all who are hot Catholicks, whilll the troops of the Nobles on horfeback, whom they call Banderia or B^.nderifles, renew daily the moil dreaxlful fcenes.

Vefterday at no�n his Serene Highnefs the Dttke of OjJeans had a private audience of their Royal HighneiTes the Prince of Wales and Duke ofTorfe-at Carleton-houfe. llhis morning their Royal Highnefles the Prince ej^Wales, Duke of York, and his Serene High-tfsfs*the Duke of Orleans, fet off from town on a vifit to his Rftttl Highnefs the Duke of Clarence, on. board the Vattant at Spithead. Cm account of the King's letters to the Cabinet Minifters on-Monday, the following arrived in town yefteTfday morning, and at noon met in Council at the Duke of Leeds's office, Whitehall, viz. the Lord Chancellor, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mafte*-Gerieral of the Ordaance, two Secretaries of State, and the Firft Lord of the Admiralty. At four o'clock the Council broke Up, when the refult was forwarded to the Ki at Windfor Lodge Lail night, at nine o'clock, Mr. Major arrived at the Secretary of State's Office, from Madrid, .with difpatches from Mr. Fitzherbert. A Council was immediately held ; and, from the proceedings of the night, and the general afpeft of affairs, we may jultly infer, that the profpedl of a further continuance of Peace is removed from a hope. A MefTenger is hourly expetfled to arrive from Paris, with news no lefs interefting and important. The King of Pruflia, after reviewing the for-trefs of Schweidnitz, and the mountain frontiers of his territories, took up his head quarters at Schonwalde on the i/th-inilant. By accounts from Calcutta, we learn that at a place called Nudee, in the diftricl: of Kefl'angur, the moll (hocking enormities are committed by a banditti of Bramins, who for ages before had be n held facre-1 in the country. They generally attack villages and fi igle houfes in gangs of fifty or fmy, which they fet fire to and plunder while in flames, prtve 'ting at the fame time the wretched inhabitants from efcaping. In order to elide detection, they ufually drefs in European habits, and paint their faces of a white colour; they are remarkably well armed with fwords, piltols, and fometimes with guns, and have hitherto efcaped all the endeavours of juft refentment. The Governor General and Council, however, have offered large rewards for their apprehenfion, and it is hoped that fome of them will toon meet their deferts. There has been a bkjody fcene at Prelbourg, inHungary. A quarrel arofe between the twc parries, and they immediately made the fword the umpire ; fix were killed on the one fide, one on the other, and three wounded. Advices from Frankfort, dated the 19th infl. fay, thaTrrft fpite of the truce demanded by the Turks, and lilently granted, the army of the Grand Vizir, compofed of 60,000 men, and increafedalmoil inilantly to 120,000, has advanced to cover "~' in 885I Viddin. The Prince de Saxe Cobourg, confequence, has received orders to march again!l the Turks, and give them battle. Extract of a Letter from Port/mouth t "June 29. Yeilerday evening Admiral Barrington, with twelve fail of the line, including the Valiant, commanded by the Duke of Clarence, were under weigh by half pad fix P. M. after very unremitting exertions from five o'clock A. M. to effeft the clearing of the harbour. The wind proving unfavourable, the utmoft (kill and activity was continued during the night to get the fleet to fea; but it was not till day-break this morning that the purpofe was effecled.-Eighteen fhips of the line, and feveral fine fiigates, are the force now under the Admiral ; and at Torbay, he will be joined by fome ihips from Plymouth and this port. At half pad eight this morning, at a time when the fleet was beyond the fight of the beil glaflVs, bearing away for Torbay, with the wind as fair as it could blow, we have reafon to conjecture they fell in with the Dutch fquadron, under the command of Vice-Admiral Kingfber-gen; and in particular, we muft obferve, that the firing of falutes continued fo long as to confirm the fuppofition. " A tender, which this morning arrived, brings advice, that the London had not been able to make much way for this port, owing to unfavourable winds. At the fame time, the Commander of the tender reports, that yeilerday evening, in his way through the Downs, he faw feveral ihips of force, which.he knew to be the Dutch fleet.-At all events, our Naval Ally is expected to form a junction with the Britifh fleet in Torbay ; and the deilination of the whole is unquestionably to cruize off Cape St. Vincent. " The Hebe frigate failed on Sunday night* under fee ret orders, and very unexpectedly. She is gone, it is fuppofed, to watch the motions of the Spaniih fleet, which, according to very creditable intelligence, is at fea." The Caledonia, Pottinger, of Borrowilonnefs, is loft en a rock at Davis's Streights; crew faved. The Unity. Prentice, from Memel to London, is wrecked on the Swin Bottoms. The Flora, Fotheringham, from Jamaica to Leith, is loll on the Jordains. KIN G's BENCH. An acliojn was brought by a young lady to recover from a gentleman a fatisfaction in damages for defamatory words. It appeared in evidence that the defendant had fpoken the, following words of the plaintiff:- " She has been a w-e to me, and I can prove it." It did not appear to what particular time thefe words referred. The Counfel for the defendant contended that the words, as proved to have been fpoken, were not actionable. They pointed to no definitive time in wh'ch the plaintiff was faid to be incontinent. They might import that file was many years ago deftitute of chaitity, but ihe might as the law prefumes have reformed, and be now an example of virtue and prudence. The plaintiff was noofuited. 1 ia 80 78 959 891 691 497 474 3 79 379 320 Returns of Members for the new Parliament.-No. XII. Cheshire* John Crewe, Ef^; and Sir R.Salitbury Cotton, Bart. Dorsetshire.

Of eleven hundred freeholders who polled for Lord William Ruffell the firft day, eight hundred and two voted for him only. It feerr.s to be a circulating joke to invite parties to dinner at houfes without the knowledge of the bojl. In indances where a gentleman is fa unmindful of his friends as never to give a dinner^ the joke has humour; but to fend a party cffrarp-fet guefls half a dozen miles into the country, where a generous landlord is from home, or un-( prepared, merits a horie-whipping-and in a cafe or two, which has lately happened, the wag, if he can be difcovered, will receive, if not his dinner, his defert. At the clofe of the poll for Weilminfler yefter-day, the numbers were, Mr. Fox 1880, Lord Hood 1666, Mr. Home Tooke8i8. Something like a rival of the bid riots took place on the clofe of yellerdav's poll, at the Huft-ings in Covent-Garden. Mr. Fox, Mr. Sheridan, Cant. Hood, and Mr. Home Tooke, made various attempts to addrefs the numerous and motley affemblage. The pattizans in oppofition to them took no fmall pains to prevent either having ah audience. From noife and uproar the mob proceeded to acts of violence ; and it is with concern we add, that fome inoffenfive electors were knocked down on this occafion, and other-wife treated in a ruffianly manner. Thofe who make out the Bills of Mortality for the prefent week are defired to add the following difordr/r-Died of a ivarm canvas. Or/Sunday morning the following unfortunate affair happened on board the Saturn, at Spithead : Ky accident the failors let a boom flip from the main-top, which ilruck Mr. Chalmers, the Second Lieutenant, on the head, and knocked him overboard ; as he never rofe again, it is fuppofed the blow kilted him. He was a good man, and an able officer, and is much regretted. Lad night the Opera feafon concluded by a mifcellaneous entertainment at Ranelagh. It confifted of an admirable fel.ction of muiic and dancing. Lord Kenyon was fo much indifpofed that he could not attend at the Court, of King's-Bench yeilerday, on which account Judge Buller heard the caufes in the room of his Lordihip. Yeilerday the Court of Common Pleas ex-preffed in ilrong terms the neceflity of difcou-raging litigious actions, which are fo frequently brought by poor ip-^orant people by the advice of low Attornies ti_ utter ruin of the former. The Jury according to this laudable recommendation, in an action brought for a trifling afftult, being bound by law to find a verdict for the plaintiff (the defendant not having pleaded a juftifica-tion) fhewed their difapprobation of it, by giving the plaintiff only one farthing damages. This fort of action"! will in  .ure be diilinguiihed by the name of the farthing caufes. On Monday night a highwayman_jnade an attempt on & gentleman, near Whetiion turn-p'ke> tvko immediately fixed a double-barreled pillol, and lodged the contents in his head, whic.h killed him inilantly, His body was carried to the Bull' public hoiife for the Jury to fit on; arid the gentleman proceeded on to Barnet.
