By a letter^ from Colonel Hartley.^ Camp, in Vipeen Ifland,. dated the 6th of May,' we are informed, that our troops had landed, on the 2 5 th of April, and found that Tippbo had ftormed and carried the Travancon lines On the 15 th ult. He met with very-little refiftance from the Rajah's^ i^bcps, who fl|d immediately on the firft aflaulf.' The whole country in the neighbourhood is now de&fred. The* ttmabitants have all gone fouth-. ward. Tippoo's army, which coiififts of upwards of 100,000 men, is. encamped at Mellcore, about ten miles from this place. M. Tally, a Frenchman, with a detached party, has been laying fiege to Cranganore for fome days paft :-He } opened his batteries this morning, the firing has been inceffantfmce day break; and it is, thought that the' Fort tannot hold out long. By letters from Madras} of the 24th uh;. we learn, that their grand army was to march from Trinehino-poly, on the 5 th inftant,' und^r the command of General Meadows, fo that it -will not be prudent. ibr Tippc^to wsiam 'bis toCighbourhood.1 tywlit&yri&ht/orcein will be r^pffible for ns^ ^ tjuit this place, he would be able to cut off all oUr fupplies,; by meech, wherein he acknowledged the ho- \ nour his Btio>y-citi5eji.s had done him, and faid he would in his. attendance on all public bufihefs} and hoped the Court would give iim their affiftarice on all occafions. The thanks of the Court to the late Lord-Mayor (Pickett) were moved by Mr. Deputy Birch, and feconded by Mr. Dbrnfordj the former paid" a great many compliments to the per-feveranc"e of the late LordrMayor, notwithiland-ing *he daily abufe he received in the newfpapers, .and the defeftion of bis brethren on the Bench. He was angered /byj.^Jamei Alderman Newnham,- who denied any defeftibn^ but that tbe.Caurtof Aldermeri.wereever readx^f to give him their advice. ' ' Aftet a great deal of time taken dp in debate, and-fome parts being particularly objecled to, arid qaeftions being pat thereon, the thanks were agreed to with very little alteration, and ordered ' to be'pubjifhed. Mr. Syms, in a very fenfible and ingenious fpeech relative to the commercial advantages obtained by the Convention with 5pain,- and the univerfal bleflings of peace obtained without the dire .effect of fpUling human blood, moved for an humble and loyal Addrefs ta his Majefty, congratulating his Majefty on his exertions, and thereby preventing the calamities of war. Mr. Deputy Leeky feconded the motion, after making a few pertinent pbfervations on the,advantages which peace has ever infused to this country. r 'Mr. Thorpe; Mr. Wjlfon, Alderman Skinner, Alderman' Newnham, and feveral others obje&ed to the motion taking place, the ratification not being exchanged. They were anfwered by Sir James Sanderfon, Alderman Watfon, Alderman Curtis, Mr. Syms, &c* who ftrorigly urged the meafure as confiftent with former precedents particularly in the peace of 1783, which was not finally fettled and figned till feven months after figning preliminaries. � After two hours debate the: Recorder put the queftion, on which Mr. Thorpe moved to have it adjourned, which, on a divifion, was negatived; there being tight Aldermen, 49 Commoners,, and two Tellers againft adjourning, and four Alder-'njenj 28 Commoners, and two Tellers,for adjourning. The original queftion was then put and carried, arid the Aldermtn Crofby, Sanderfon, Watfon, AmS&f�n� Efdaile, Le Mefurier, Lewes, abd Qlyn j-'Wfeff.
