Parted by the Anna Maria, Chriftian, and Sarah, Sommers, from St. Andero j Four Brothers, "'�i from Rotterdam ; and Amrtfj Spencer, for Jamaica. LONDON. On Monday night Mr. Long arrived in town froml Paris. He brought letters with him from his. Excellency Earl Gower,. his Majeily'j Am-baiTador at the Court of France. Mr. I*itt, �n receiving the letters; held a Meeting of the Cabinet Miniiters at his houfe in Downing-ftreet, which was attended by the Duke of Richmond, Earl of Chatham, and "Mr. Secretary Grenville; and at half pall one o'clock yefterday morning, Mr. Flint, the Meffenger, was fent off with letters to the King at Windfor Lodge* with orders to wait till feven o'clock, which is the hour his Majefty generally gets out of bed, and to deliver the letters to the King as he was going to hear morning prayers, which he did, and returned to town yefterday at twelve o'clock. On his return a Council was held at the Secretary of State's Office for Foreign Affairs, Whitehall, which was attended by all the Cabinet Minifters in town, and fat till fqaf o'clock, when the Dake of Leeds difpatched one of his MefTengers in Waiting with letters to Earl Gower at Paris. This difpatch, and the event upon which it is founded, namely, the decifion "bf the National Affembly of France, in favour of tthe Minifters, is important to England. We are led to believe that things are likely to take a turn in France favourable to this country. It was the party of the��-ragset that made the famous report of the 25th of Auguft/where a warlike conclufion is drawn fo in-conlifteotly from pacific premifes. On that report the decree was made for fulfilling the Family Compatt, and for arming 45 fhips. That party only were fufpicious of England, and they alorie were for interfering in our difpute. In their queftion of Tuefday and Wednefday Iaft they failed, and the Minifters of France thereby de  rived llrength which they had not before. It is not, therefore, unlikely, that their influence will be exerted in preventing a war between England and Spain. Yefterday a volume of 440 pages iflued from the prefs under the name of M. de Cai.onne. Its title is, " De l'Etat de la France, present et A VEt^ir." M. de Calonne, in this volume, condemns the National Affembly for their refolution to arm, which he avers wis not provoked by the conduft of England. -Neither its King nor its Minifter had any hoftile views againft France* This he can fay from his own obfervation-for he has lived three " years in England, and has never been de-�* ceived by an Englishman." One of the Treafury Meflengers was fent off yefterday morning to bring the Lord Chancellor to town from Buxton. Saturday's Gazette, it is expefled, will contain an order for all Lieutenants of the Royal Navy upon half-pay to prefsnt themfelves for ferrice to the Admiralty within a certain time, under the penalty of being ftruck off the lift. When the Emperor quitted Frankfort on the 15th inft. he had the mortification to leave the King of Naples iff of the fmall-pox. Yefterday artjveji at the 'General Port Oitice One LiAon lMlft� brought to Falmouth by the Expedition psweet boat* Capt. Rofiien, after a pleafant pafiafe of fix days. The pffle^gers hbme in the Expedition were, the Barpn Hbggttife and his fervant, Mrs. Mot-tier, and fttdiftreffed BritimfabjeRs. Bjr tbef Expedition we learn, that the Bull-dog flobp of warr Capt. Peyton, had arrived at Lif-bon .with difpatehes from General O'Hara at Gibraltar^ IP be forwarded by the packet to London; imd had returned to her ftation on the tpfh of October j that the g*rrifon of Gibraltar were in pfcrfcft health and fpirits, arid were in anxioos exftWEtatiOfj of a war j that 300 men hstd beeri added ttf the riumber already employed in cdrapMttiitf the Spariifh lines; and that the forces i& thofe fortifications were to be augmented to 860c effectfveVmeri; .diie of the new Je gui) ftiips is ofdered for Gibraltar immediately, and Sir Robert Boyd, the new Governor^ fs expected lib take his paffage in her to that^afrifon. ; OA the 2oih of September ftie brig Penelef e, Robert Kerf, mstfeY, from Barbadoes, bound for Oreenock, fpoke flie Favourite JohiK, Cowd^ Mid the St; Johft/ Hafeifen* from Portfraouth, boani /or Qgebec wrih the Aoyal artillefy on hoar'd, on tie Banks of Ne^foanAaiid.

James Montagu, fon of the Admiral, is named to command the Montagu, of 74 guns, , fitting at Portfmouth, and ready for cornmiffion: and the,Rev. Mr. Montagu, eldiffifon of the Admiral, is appointed one of the Prebends of the Cathedral Church of Chichefter, by the Biihop of that Diocefe, in the room of the Rev". George Falhill, deceafed. It is not only in Esgland that the name of Edmund Burke is borne by men oftagh political talents. The King of Denmark has appointed M. Edmond Boarke Ambaftador Extraordinary at Warfiyv. A new order is iflued for the Guards. They are not to march till Monday ; and inftead of proceeding dire&ly to Portfmouth, they are to be quartered at Chichefter, Southampton, and Wia-chefter. Yefterday new knapfacks were delivered to all the men belonging to the guards who have been draughted for foreign fervice. They are con-ftru&ed of thin canvafs, painted a light orange j colour to keep out the wet. The old ones, which were of goat's ikin, were returned. Anew invention has lately taken place on beard reveral of the {hips of war in refpeft to the naval ordnance, by fixing a lock over each of the touch-holes, by which they will be difcharged without having recourfe to matches as heretofore. This experiment is expe&ed to be productive of much good; in particular in cafe of fires on board fhips, too common in warm engagements. There being no Court of Aldermen yefterday at Guildhall, the Mafter and Warden* of the Company of Bakers waited on the Lord-Mayor at Gnildhall, to affix the aflize of bread, and there being a confiderable fall in the.price of wheat at the Corn Market fmce laft Tuefday, his Lordihipwas induced to reduce the price of brn was lately delivered in Lancaflvire of four children, two boys, and two girls; and what is remarkable* the boys have each of them two. thumbs on each of their hands.
