Yefterday morning the King took the diver Ifion of hunting with his harriers in Windfor Grea Park; and after moll excellent fport his Majefty returned at three O'clock to the Queen's Lodge to dinner. The King's Meifengfer in waking came-up yefterday morning with letters from his Majefty at WindforTLodge to the Lord, Chancellor and Mr. Pitt, which were immediately forwarded to them at their different country refidetlce?: On Thurfday laft arrived at the Biftop's Pal ace i Glotfcefter, his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Gloucefter ; and on Friday morning his Rcyal Highnefs received the Mayor; Aldermen^ and Common-Council, Who waited upon him in their formalities, wheri he gracioufly accepted the freedom of the city, which- was alfo; by the Corporation; preferited to the Prince, his ion.

They then proceeded to j^j-, Ferryman's mufeum of Britiih quidrupeds and 'feirt�3� where they were joined by the Duke of Beaufort ^nd the Marqnis of Worcefter, and which afforded them art entertainment equally pleafing and tinexpecW, at fo great a diftance from the Capital. The National Aflembly of France, retaining fomc little leaven of the national frivolity, have determined, in the midft of all their disturbances, that their Judgea (hall wear a round hat, turned up before, with a large black feather in it. The Elector Palatine has' granted leave for the pafiage of 24,000 Auftrians through his territories *r their march to the Pays Bas; a Letters from Rome &y,.'.� The reports whfch have been fpread relative to troubles in thia Capital, have been greatly exaggerated. All is at prefent very quiet, Caglioftro is watched with more circumfpettion than ever. The caufe of his confinement mull furely be of .moft ferious importance ; for there are eight iron gates to pafs before one can arrive at his dungeon, and they are guarded, night and day^by eight armed men. W Extra ft of a Letter from Calcutta, April 14. " The fyflem of neutrality adopted by Nizam Ally, during the late war, is at an end ; he muft now declare himfelf, and it requires no fuper-*-natural powers to pronounce with which of the two contending parties he will fide.

' The Nabob Vizier has alfo, upon this occa-fion, exprefled, in terms the moft deciiive and forcible, his kind difpofition and wiflies." Among Other evils with which the plan of if-fuing Aflignats to the enormous amount of loo,ooo,oool. fterling is pregnant, forgery is one. It would be utterly impoffible for human fagacity to watch over fuch a mats of paper, and prevent the artifices of the profligate. In this country a coinage of copper even cannot be made, under all the vigilance and difcipline of well-executed laws, without forgery. What then muft be the confequence of fuch an iffue of paper in the natural confequence of this forgery would be prefent relaxed ftate of authority in France. The general alarm, which would accelerate the depreciation which its own weight would begin. Stage wit has always an excellent efteft : if we ihould be fo foolifh as to take any interejl in the fictitious fcene which is reprefented before us, it reminds us of the delufion, and calls off our attention from the characters to the performers, Co as to deftroy the trifling pleafure, which we might feel from the Drama, confickred as a reprekntation of real manners.
