LONDON. Yeflerday th'eir Majeflies and five of the Prin-cefles attended divine fervice in the - private Chapel at Windor Caftle, -where they heard a fermoii by the Sub-Dean. The Royal Family returned to dinner at the Queen's Lodge at three o'clock, and in the afternoon vifited the Caftle, but did not walk on the Terrace. The public days at St. James's Palace this week art, a Levee on Wednefday, a Drawing-room on Thurfday, and a LevCe on Friday next. The Lord Chancellor does not go to Scarboi rough this feafon, on account of the State bufuicls in the Cabinet requiring his Lordfliip's refidence nearer town. Laft Tuefday the Right Hon. Lord HnwkefbUry ^as appointed Collector of the Cuftoms inwards, a place df.Ji8.ool. a year. � v - William Suckling was appointee! his Chief Deputy at the Bench Cuilom-houfe. The reft of the officers are : The Duke of Newcaftle, Comptroller. Duke of Manchefter, Collector outwards. Lord Pelham, Surveyor General. Lord Stawell, Surveyor ; who have each their Chief Deputies at the Bench. Some difpatches were received on Saturday From the 'Sari of Effingham, Governor-General of the Ifland of Jamaica, and are faid to contain Ibme important matters. The Lords of-the Treafury have appointed Francis Welch, Efq. Comptroller of the Cuftoms at Cape Breton, in the room of-Brown, Efq. deceafed. John Johriftbn, Efq. is appointed Accountant-General for the Hat Duties, in the room of Rich. Bowen, Efq. refigned. On Saturday arrived at the General Poll Office one Jamaica mail, brought to Falmouth in the Speedy packet boat; Mr. Coalfworth mafter, after a paffageof43 days. Py the Speedy we learn, that it was univerfally believed at Jamaica, that a war with Spain was inevitable, if not already commenced; and that Admiral Affleck had, in cdnfequence, ordered eight additional fix prjiinders and a proportionable quantity of ordnance ftores on board the .packet previous to her leaving the ifland, to enable her to make a defence in cafe of being attacked. The Speedy failed frbhi Port Royal"ori the 20th of July* bnder convoy of his Majefty's fliip Centurion, Capt. Otway, who was alfo bound for England, awd with whom lhe parted on the 28th of July, iri lat. 21, 36. On the 25th of July'(he fpokc the William from Liverpool, bound to New Yorlci but 24 days, in lat. 480 5', long; iS� 42'; and on the 31ft of Aug: A.

Martin and fervafitj Mr. John Weft, arid Mj\ Abraham Lefe'm. , His Majefty's (hip Calypfo failed for England from Port Royal 6b the iid of June. The Belgic Congress has not yet given up all horjes: They have come to a refblution, the re fiilt of enthafiafrri, in Which religion has, as ufual, been made the inftrurhent of excitation, that they ftiall defend the Belgic provinces to-the laft, and they have proppfed a plan for raifing volunteers in every diftict, and to attack the1 Auftrians in Lirnbeurg. Poor Caglioftro continues ill at ftome. A pill it is faid, has beeri admlniftered to. him by the Polignacs, which all hii knowledge of phyfic Cannot expel;  � -b The wheat harveft is generally over in Effex, burrey, Herts, Bucks, Berks, Bedford^arid Cam' bridge, and turns out welL In fuch a iud/i^n and rapid tranfition from a ftate of flav�ry to that of a free people (as has teen elx^ienced in France), that feme circufltr ftances ihuuld have occurred which we do not apprdve \, that thlre (hobfil have been fome ex-ceflei Jfo deplore; fome regulations to r,evife ; fohid, miftakei which more mature confederation aud further experience may, and probably will, correct-is not at all furprifing. The wonder is that, in a Revolution of fuch immenfe exteint ami magnitude, there mould be fo little to blame, and fo much to praife. The defects are few and in-fignificant. Like" the fpots on the fun, they are loft in -the general fplert'dour and brightnefs of the whole. '' The merits are numerous and important. In rdany of their proceedings, and more efpeci-ally on the fubjerft bf religious liberty, the French National AfiemWy haVfe fet an example of wif-dom and liberality to the Britifti Parliament. Our countrymen, we hope, will notfuffer themfelves to be outdone in the generous ftrife to extend the freedom and promote the happinefs of mankind --the only ftrife and competition worthy of two great and enlightened nations. The manner in which the King of the French has^ exprefted his wilhes to retain the caftle of Pau', is- not only a fine compliment to the memory of a gbod monarch, but a fair, and we fin--Cerely hope, an eflicacious, bait for popularity. He protefts that it if 'mpollible for him not to add to the fervent wUh^s bf the inhabitants of Beam, his own, that the pl?.c� where Henry the Fourth was born mr.y remain fbf ever in the poi'i'eilipn of his defcer-dants! The Ecclair, Marion, of Marreilles, was loft at the Cape of Good Hope the i 1 th of April. The Count Conway, Tempy, was loft at Ihje Cape of Good Hope the 20th of April; crew, and part of the cargo laved. " Yefterday rilnruing about two o'clock, a dreadful fire broke cut at a wood wharf in^Greenwich ; it burnt with unabating fury far five heur.s before any Water could be procured, however, at (even O*clock, plenty of water being got, the different firemen afed their utmoll exertions, and it was happily got under by nine o'clock. Seven houfeS are confumed, and two more were pulled down in brder to ftop the progref* of the flames, which had the defired effeft. Two horfes and a fteep Were burnt.
