Adjourned at half part four O'clock till to-hiorrosv. The people of Hungary have caught the new tiifeafe, as it is called. . There is" a murmur prevailing in every clafs of the people, that it is an injury to them trj have a Ring who refides not among them ; and they talk of demanding from Leopold that he fhall hold his Court Li the kingdom. ... . The.election pf a new Emperor is fixed for the 1 ft of July, and a new King of the Romans, it is expected, will be appbinted immediately after. A letfcr from Brufielsj bf the icjth current; announces a Very ajarming change of affairs in that Capital; The arutocratic party finding that the patriotic vcMnteers were hot tb be intimidated by decrees, nor orders of council/ frchn perfi/ting in the caufe of liberty; have, it is faid; employed a very dangerous engine to effectuate their pur-pofes; They hrrVe by mean's of rrioney, and other artifices, contrived to" fpirit up infurredtions arid tiots among the loweft dregs of the people, to balance- the1 increafihg power of the Patriots.- Thefe riots liavlng ho immediate caufej arc faid to owe their rife to this infernal project of the States of Brabant. The houres of the Patriots' only h2ve been attacked by this banditti. The Dukes D'rUfel and D'Aremberg, and Vlfcouni Walkiers, were the meh that facrificed flttjft in the caufe of liberty, have within thefe iew days been the principal objects of the verigeanee of this mob. The latter^^n particular, having facrificed 1 zo.eoo florins out of iris private ptirfe, fci the maintenance of the patriotic artnyj The ilorm comrrienced on Monday afternoon, and on Tueiday this hired mob' of plunderers deinolilhed the houfe of Mr. Chapel, a Baflkerj and two other$.-^*On Wednefday i having again jfTembled before the houfe 0/ Mr. Simon/ they were proceeding to pillage it, when a party of volunteers came up, and fired over their heads, which had the eSt&. to difperfe the mob' in that quarter. But they again muttered in another quarter, and deftroyed the houfe of an Apothecary; the volunteers having all along ftrift orders front the ftates not to fire. A party of Vifcount Walkiers' company being very ill treated by tins banditti, they were obliged to fire in their owrt defence^ and two men were killed. This wound up their refentment fp far againft Vifc. Walkiers, that they refolved lipon vengeance; and if the belt meafures had not been adopted for his faftty, in all probability that patriotic nobleman would have fallen a faennce to their fury. In the evening he was fummoned to the ftates^ and the refult was, that he has refigned his company nf volunteers. Wednefday was pretty quiet;-but on Thorfday, the plunderers again aflembled, aad threatened feveral houfes, At Malinei feveral lives were loft. Such is Ihe precarious fituation of affairs at prefent in this capital. One of the greatefl orators and boldeft fpeakers at prefent in the French AfTembly, is the Abbe Maury. His zeal fometimes tranfports and carries him a point too far-but it is a right zeal, a paflion for the eftablimment of constitutional liberty. In returning home one evening very lately, from the National Aflembly, he was fur-rounded by fome of the populace, one of whom was faying fomething difrefpeftful of him. He looked boldly at the fellow, and addrened him in thefe words : " Yes, I am the Abbe Maury ; mark me well, that, when opportunity offers, you may cut my throat, and, by no; miftaking your man; commit but one murder." Yefterday letters were received at the Duke of Leeds's office, Whitehall, informing his Grace that Mr. Dreffing, one of his meffengers, who was lately fent with Government difpatches to Sir Robert Mjrray Keith, at the Court of Vienna, was apprehended and put in prifon at Luxemburgh, being taken for a fpy, and is now confined there./ Monday Mr. Fitzherbert arrived in Town from his Embafly at the Hague. The Military Commiilion at Stockholm has confirmed the fentence pronounced againll Admiral Liljehorn laft year; but the Commanders of the Ships are acquitted of the charges brought againft them. The King of Pruflia has written another letter to the Prince Biihop of Liege, with the former offer of conciliation; but has- afTured him, that, unlefs he acquiefces by the 31ft of this inftant, the Pruflian-troops will on that day evacuate the territory of Liege, and the Prince muft therefore be an-Averable fur the confequences that may arife therefrom. A vote of cenfnre upon the legal conduct of a great law character in Ireland was loft by a majority of only 30 votes. In an argument on the coimty police bill., in the Houfe of Lords of Ireland, Lord Portar-lington, fpeaking of the Chairmen of the quarter feiiions lately appointed, obferved, " they vncre taken frbm the louccji order of men." Counfellor Doyle, who has been lately appointed to that office, having feen the remark in a newfpaper, Tent his Lord/hip this alternative-either to deny the words or fight. A duel is probably the alternative his Lordlhip will make choice of. His Royal Highnefs the Prince of Wales has engaged a Scotch Highlander, fuppofed to be one of the talleft men in this kingdom, as he (lands fix feet ten inches ahd a half without his (hoes; his Poyal Highnefs intends to place him as Porter at the gate of Carleton-houfe, in the Highland drefs.

The Jury found him guilty,, and the Court pronounced fentence, that he be imprlfoned for one month in the Cannongate Tolbooth, and till he find bail for 1000 merks to keep the peace for a year. , , The Judges obferved, trlst this crime was fel-aoiti'cbmmitted, aud therefore they were inclined in this iaftance to lenity; but, for the information;, arid aS a warning to the public at large, �-hey declared, that if the like flfould happen againy a much heavier puniflinieni would be inflicted Upon the offender* A M*r; Greaves has difco^ered a method of ihaking �barfe Jiapeiand pafteboard from the bark ef the withy, equal in quality to that made from rags and old ropes/ and kfi in price by about five and twenty per �*nt; Yerterday the following number's were drawri Prizes at Guildhall, viz,-Nos. 29,256, 1,458, prizes of ioool.*-N#$. 38,942, 28,052, 43,7*5, prizes fif lot; The ftable ground, adjoining to the OperaT Bonfe in the Haymarket, is hired for the purpofe bf enlarging the new theatre, which the old proT ptietors are now bufy in preparing tb rai*b on the former foundation.

His Rcjyal Highnefs the Doke of Cumberland, and feveral other men of quality attended. It is principally by means of the attention of his,Royal Highnefs that thefe hardened mifcreants will very probably meet their fate.
