LONDON, September 7.
By the dispatches received from Mr. Hiroir.ond, we
leirn, that his million has failed in toto ; the king of
IVuilia. having Hot only rejected the proposal made to
him 4>y our court, which went to guarantee to him
certain very important territories and a tta-p»rt, but
received Mr. Hammond in the mojt 1:1.1 mur 1
This is an insult not to be wondered at, after submitting
to such an humiliation, as to apply to that very powir
which deceived us, broke faith with us, and cheated
us of our money.
The object of Mr. Hammond's million isfaid to been
'Vtvo-fbld: firft, to aftertiin the final dete min.ition of
the l'rench poveniment on the conditions of peace
and secondly, if that determination Ihould prove to be
such as to render the continuation of the war inevita
ble, to detach the Prufiian monarch from hi? alliance
with the French, and to induce nim to rejoin that con
federacy which he w*s the firft to eftablilh, and the
firft to clelert. In both these points,-Mr. Hammond has
completely failed ; and the failure has jullified the ap
prehensions of thof : who were capable of forming any
judgment of the present slate of contiaental affairs.
Some of our politicians are now convinced of what
they ought to have seen long ag«, that the royal plan- !
derer of Poland is determined to take every possible ad
vantage of the ? empcror's diftrefled situation. The
petty Hates too, at least as many as are within his power
will foot! participate in the blessings of his pater iul care
and afteifhbn.
The demands of the French diredtory, as communi
cated through nur late faithful ally, are laid to be such
as might be expcifled through such a channel, tn fa<sl,
the- go c'early to provecnepf two things—either that
PrullVa is not the channel by which negociations at all
JionoOrJble tr. this country can be carried on ; or, that
that the direflory w ill hot, through any foreign medi
um, treat with our present miniitry. We pretend ivit
to determine wfcich of these i< the facSl.
Mr. Hammond, after fending the meflen
ger, to Vienna, with the result of his conferences at the
court of Prussia, is himfelf on his return to Loudon,
and may be daily expelled.
The emperor, we are told, is determined to defend
his dominif>» .ro the last. It is natural he fhou'd do so ;
but it is conlidently reported, that he has no intention
to carry or) the war any lon'ger ; that he now labours to
givepeaceto his dominions by a treaty with the French j
and that, if nothing unforefeen retard the negociati
ons, a peace between these two powers will be cun
eluded before tb| end of next month.
William Swift, a man of 93 years ps ag_e, was late

not twelve years old.
The emoluments of the offices held by the late earl
of Maisfield, amounted to upwards of 19,0001. per
eifn. We do not complain that the moftof them were
.jinecure places • every man ought to have places suited
tn his abilities, and if Mr, Pitt has provided for many
of his friends in this way, it ia a proof that tie knows
exailly what they are fit for. <

One of the most firople and ufefnl difceveri'es in
Agriculture, comprehending pasturage, is to mix
green, or new cut clover, with layeis »f lfr&w,in ricks
'!»and {lacks. Thus the sap and strength of the clover
is absorbed by the 'straw, which, thus impregnated,
both horses and cattle eat greedily ; shd thus the clover
is dried, and prevented from heating. This pra&ice

Brutal Outrage at Yarmouth,
Mr. Thelwail, who has been for some tiifie delivering z
Course of Lectures on Civil Hiftorv, and particularly on the
laws and revolutions ol Rome, at Norwich, rec. ived a lUong
invitation frotn (everal of the rincipal inhabitant* of Yai

firft merchants in that place, having lent one of iiis wareboufes
for the purpole, and feveiii gentlemen having entered into a
fubfeription to fit it op in a proper way, Thelwall accepted
the invitation.
On theftfftand second nights, a oarty was formed, con
fining of two or three Clergymen, some officers df the Mi
litia, (moftof them dilguifed in coloured elbaths) a fellow
employed to look after the emigrants, and a hangerou or
two (place expe&ants) of government, who attempted to

Uoys without, irrigated by a naval officer, wno offered them
five guiueas if they wod»d pull down the hou s e, co-operatea
with the detachment within, by all the noise and uproar
they were capable of making. The difturbfrs, novtfever.

concord, and discreet good humour of the cotupuny. The

ages, molliv of genteel people, aflembled, and the k&ure
proceeded for some time with the utmost trartqnillky j but
about eight o'clock a banditti, con filling of upwards of sixty
faTltfrs, amjfcl with blui?-eons, who came on fliore (evident

in the roads, iuddicnly rushed into the room, attempted to

completely c 1 eared t'hc room a Maltlnmfe ficuated

PRO SP E'er 4) p PEACE.
The indirect attempt of minifiers to negociate with
the French republic, having failed, we are happy to
hear, that, waving every tittle, pilrry consideration
of etiquette oa a feufinefs so fericufly momentous, they
have, with muth wisdom and propriety, final 1 )' deter

other power.
Mr. Hammond's interview with the king of Prnflia,
although it did not produce the advantages which
were expefled to result from it, nevertheless enabled
that geutlrm?n to afcertam at ieaft one very, material
and important fatf, namely, '« That the French go
vernment had not the smallest objeflion to treat with
this country —but that, for the purpeft of Supporting
their eonftltution in the eyes of their country, and of
proving to all Europe the ample coni'ohdation of rhe
republic, any p rope fit ion the BriuCi cabinet might
have 10 make on thefubjeifl of PEACE, muff be made
m a direct and unequivocal manner to the diredlory it-
In coifequence oAhis intimation, the csbinet im
mediately proceeded to deliberate on the queflion ;
and, after coniiderable debate, it was at length decid
ed that an accredited agent (hould be sent immediately
«o Paiis, inverted with all the neceflary powers for
opening a negeciation with the executive directory, and
(empowered to submit to them iiich terms ts our mini
llers an willing to agree to, for the purpose of restor
ing psacc to Europe. Those terms are already drawn
up.—We ire well allured they have been diaated by
finc«rity, and that they are at once so liberal, wife,
and honor 'ble, as to afford the molt rational ground of
hope that thty cannot fail to produce the moil favora
ble imprefiwn not only upon the membersof th* French
government, but upon the French nation at large, es
pecially when it i considered that the executive direc
tory, (owing to the j#-feit ruinous Hate of their
finances, and the diftrefled condition of their affairs,
independent of the recent check they have experienced
in Germany J ruiiif be as anxious to bring the war to
a speedy termination, as either of the powers with
whom they have to contend. Of thr Mature of the

has been hinted to us, from a quarter,of the greatest
reipeftabiiity, that the grand balls of the proposed ne*
gociat.on is lii.c.y to be, a restoration of all our con
queffs in the Weft-Indies, during the present war, and
