LONDON. Yefterday the ^ing, Q>jeen, and fix PrincefTes, with their fuitp> went to the'Collegiate Chapel at Windfor, where' th-y heard divine-fervite. and a fermon. The Royal family and attendants all appeared in a change, Celes arrived at CarletouiHcraf* on Sfttatday ftight from On Sattrrday morning one of the King's Mef-fengers arrived at the Duke of Leeds's Office, Whitehall, with letters from Earl Gower, his Majefty's Ambaffador at Paris. On the arrival of tlis Meflenger a Council was fumraoned, which met at one o'clock at the Duke of Leeds's Office, and was attended by Mr. Pitt, the two Secretaries of State, Duke of Richmond, and Earl of Chatham. At half paft three o'clock the Council broke on, when the refult was forwarded to the King. "I^rercfay the three battalions of-Guards ordered for foreign fervice were relieved from further attendance on the King's duty ; fo that they j have now their time unoccupied to prepare for their departure. If we may judge from circumftances, the Guards are going to Gibraltar, and not to the Weft-Indies. No order has been given to the artillery to furnifh them with battalion guns, which would Certainly have been the cafe, if they had been going on any other than garrifon fervice. The detachment of light dragoons from the five regiments are certainly going to India; for the officers of the 19th, now in England on leave of abfence, are ordered to join them, and no oS-cers from their refpeftive regiments are to accompany them. The war with Tippoo Saib renders this draught �eccffary. The -exatt amount we have not yet heard, but we believe it is no more than 60. Saturday the levies from the foot guards de-fsgned for foreign fervice were drawn out on the parade in St. James's park. The men are going to have their hair cut clofe previous to marching for embarkation : Hence t.ieir delUnation for a warm climate is no longer equivocal. An exprefs was received on Saturday from the Mediterranean. An official account is come over by this conveyance of the French men of war fitting out at Toulon. Two expeditions of the. very iaft importance are now in embryo, with a force of fuch magnitude as this country hardly ever tore witnefs to. By thefe, in cafe of a war, the Spaniards may lofe their dominion in South America, and France will be wholly ejefted from their prefent Oriental pofTeflions. The funds of France are a moll extraordinary proof how tranfvtory is popular fame. When M. Neckar departed from France, the loan of 1784. was at a di/count of 10 i-half per cent. It now bears a pr.mium of 2 i-half per cent, and yet his departure was announced as the certain sera of their bankruptcy. The houfjs of the,Clergy in Paris have fold, rapidly, and bave, upon an average, brought one third more than the valuation. The Cluney M'Pherfon,,Duncan M'Pherfon, from London fqr Seville, ran on flibre near Kingf-down, leak;/, where ihe took fire, and was totally deftroyed. The Santiffima .Trinidada, Cuculla, .frorn Malaga to Belfaft, is wrecked on Belly-Kelly Point, near Port-a-Ferry. .....

" This afternoon arrived, the Hercules, Ful-larton, from Jamaica for London, after a paflage of J 3 weeks, in which Ihe received fome damage by lightning." - His Majefty lately fignified his defire to fee Macdonald,, the old Highlander, who won the walking wager a week or two fince, of ten miles in two hours and a half. He was accordingly prefented to the King at Windfor; when his Majefty expreffed his furprife at fuch ah exertion in a man of upwards of 100; and with his wonted goodnefs and condefcenfion, gave him the contents of the purfe then in his pocket-nine gui neas and a half. The Bithop of Briftol has appointed the Rev. Mr. Gibfon, Chancellor of his Diocefe. "Drs. Small, Ca/berd, Camplin, and the Rev. Meffra. New, Wilkins, and Jones, are fworn in as his Surrogates. Mr. Ogilvie is declared out of danger, and is fo far recovered from his late accident, which he received from the Duke of Richmond's elk, that he is able to walk out. The Rev. John Bennett, Vicar-of Pagula, and ofKayingham, in Yorkshire, is appointed a do-mettic Chaplain to the Right Honourable the Earl .of Guildford. Friday the Earl of Chatham prefented a petition to the King, which he had received from 15 pri-foners in Newgate, begging his Lordfhrp to intercede, :as .they were all bred to the fea-, and as their crimes^ are not capita!, that they might be releafed, on condition of- their entering iritb his Majefty Vfervice.
