The ratification of the treaty concluded between our Court and that of Pruflia, the ftipulated term of which expired the tft of this month, not having yet arrived from Berlin, has excited fome unealinefs here; and, notwithftanding the affurances which M. de Kno-belfdorf continues to give of the favourable difpo-Fition of his mailer, the Kadilefeier of Romelia, who figned the Treaty, has been depofed, and is fucceeded by the Kadilefkier of Natolia. Frequent Councils are held here, at which his Highnefs himfelf aflifts, fince the return of the Selictar Aga from the army. The party which is the moft ftreniious for a peace gains ground daily. The late Pacha of Belgrade, Abdi Bacha, died fuddenly ; and Selini, the Bacha of Salonica, has been depofed and banilhed. their Sicilian Majefties tr- 4,, *t The Prince of Wirtemberg (bST^uS'A^l^) ispromotedto the tank of Lieutenant-General. Bengal, March 18. Thurfday the W Bridget ) ^neril arrived here from the coaft at Sumatra--_Je^J-^6"6"1- Jack^" ^s ne was talttr jnn. 1% is further^faid he has given pofitive order? for all the diltricts, bordering on the Carnatic, to b? immediately laid wafte, the grain and cattle to be removed, and his magazines every where to be cori^leted. It %r&3 expected the army would march from Wallajabad in a few days, under the command of Colonel Mufgrave. We underftand the moft favourable accounts have been received from Poonah of the difpofition of the Mahrattas, who are eager to ernbrace the prefcnt opportunity of attacking Tippoo, and recovering their former poffeflions. Tippoo is reported to have fent another letter to our government, in which he once more expreffes his wifh to be on terms of amity with the Englifh; But declares that, if, on the contrary, our army fhould mo^gfrom Wallahjabad, in fupport of our ally the B||ah of Travancore, he will conceive" this movement as a commencement of hoftilities, and immediately over-run the Carnatic with his horfe : a detachment of cavalry has, notwithftanding, been fent from Cochin, to the afliftance of our ally., The following regulations will conftitute Gen. Medows's plan of operations for carrying on the war. Be/ides the armies at Wallahjabad and to the fouthward, a flying army will be formed for the defence of the Carnatic, and con fill of one King's regiment, one Company's regiment, three companies of the Bengal artillery, one regiment of native cavalry, and three hattalions of lepoys, and the command of it to be given to Col. Kelly. The other two companies of artillery will remain at the Moras. Accounts from the Malabar coaft fay, that the inhabitants of Cochin were apprehenftve of an immediate" attack from the number of Tippoo's veftels, conftrufted for the purpofe of tranfport-ing troops, and which, when thefe accounts came away, were within a-few hours fail of that place. A large town- whfch the Jews have built near the Fort, -'and which is reputed to contain much wealth, has invited (it is imagined) this attack. ----Three large English veiTels, now on the ftocks there, and nearly compleated, contributed not a little to confirm the alarm of" the people of Cochin ; the Dutch refidents there had fent their women, children, and valuables to Columbo.-The Nizam and Britiai refident at his Durbar have had a conference with the Poonah Durbar, for adopting fome meafuresfor the immediate redu&ion of the tyrant of Myfore. By a letter dated Wallahjabad the 23d of March, we learn the army had encamped there, which con-filts of the 5zd and 71ft regiments of foot, the 19th Light Dragoens, i,ft battalion of Native Infantry 2d reg. of Native Cavalry, and three companies of the detachment of Bengal Artillery were ex~ecled to mp.rch towards the fouth in the courfe of feven or eight days at farthcit.
