Tranjlaicdfrom the Ley den Gazette, March
1th —From Manheim Feb. 26.
Thtfe following are the most exact ideas
which we have of the petitions of the French
troops—The army of the Rhiney command
ed by General Michault, since the departure
of General Pichegrue, is divided into three
bodies—The firft which forms the left wing
has its head quarters in tRe valley of Neu-
Jtadt, and fends its patroles to Furckheim —
It now extends from Neivjladt to Franken-
Jiein, Tripjiadt, and Kay/erjlautem —The se
cond, of which the head quarters are at Schif
ferjladt occupies the borders of Rehbach. —
General Defaife has the cofnmand of the ad
vance giiard, the fame, who surprized, some
time since the' poll of Oggerjheim ; froih
whence he fends off from time to time de
tachments against Mundenheim ; polls which
are still occupied bp the German troops.—
The third body which is the principal,
and which is commanded by General Mich-
Milt iA p'erfon cbvefsStTie Rhine to the envi
rons of Spires and Germerjheim—His head
quarters which were the convent of Horil
■ bach, are transferred to Kircbe-veder due
league from Neuftadt. The French at Spires
and Germerjheim, are commanded by Gen.
Delmas—All these corps belong to the army
of tfi'i Rhine, since it is certain the ariAy (?f
the Mafe'Ne has quitted the environs of Deiii-
Ponts. The garrison of this city is : C6rit{sS
fed of ten thoufend troops, Bavarian Pala
tines ; one thousand grenadiers, 400 huflars,
and 300 Austrian artillery. General Count
Browne, returned the 16th of this month
from Moytnce, where he conferred wish the
Marechal Mollendarjf,, who takes,the dky af
ter fo-morfctW the chief command of the
Austrian army —which had been under GoUiit
Wallis, in confeq»ence of his being the oldest
General, and not the Prince of Wald*ck. —
Weare afliired that the Prince will immedi
ately quit this army to replace in Italy, 6en*
Fins, who retires on account of his age, or
perhaps some other cause.

Extract of a letter from L'Arcahaye,
dated 21ft March;
" Yesterday all the vessels at Port au-
Prince, mads their escape from ther.ce,
but were prevented going further thaa
this by Captain Rowley and captain Per
kins. The cause of this sudden bufmtfs,
was owing to the parties there falling out;
-»-thecotifequcnce was dreadful: they put
all the better fort they could lay hold of
to death, which amounted to 600.
" From this tranfaftlon we may short
ly expert to be in poffeflion of it, but am ,
1 mUch afraid they Will set fire to the town
- before we get in ; they have destroyed the
plain close by it a few days ago. The
Brigands came within fix miles of this
town a few nights ago, and destroyed one
of the fineft buildings in St. Domingo,
and cut off the head of one unfortunate
fellow they found there.''
