We are afl'ured he has brought ad vices that the army in that province has consent ed to'the ast of union and surety resolved on by the orders of the clergy, citizens and pealants, and part of the nobility. HAMBURGH, April 7, Letters from Stockholm of the 27 of March in form us, that the equellrian order still refufes to consent' to the act of union and guarantee, but has joined the other three orders in presenting an address of thanks to the King, which was sent to his Majelly by a deputation from the four estates. — - PARIS, April 16. A deputation, it is said, is arrived from the French American colonies, to demand a difcuflal of their rights, by the Etats Generaux. This deputation consists of thirty two-members, who will be reduced to a more convenient number. LONDON, AI'RIL 22. The merchants of this city have received up wards of jo,oool. from their correspondents in New-York the week past. A loan of eight millions of li vres has been opened at Genoa, for the service of the King of Sweden at an interest of four and a half per cent, to be repaid in eight years, begining from the year 1800. By private letters from Smyrna we learn, that, instigated by the Porte, the Tartars of the Crimea have risen up in rebellion against their Ruffian matters. They have cut in pieces several detach ments of her Imperial Majesty's forces. Ihe number and audacity of the rebels increase daily, and there is every reason to believe, that the Ruffians will be forced to abandon the Crimea. At a meeting of the States General of France, no person can be represented by proxy. Every Nobleman of 2J years of age, and an inhabitant of Paris, has a right to vote tor an elector to that city. The University of Paris fends four Members to the States. The election began on Monday last, and to prevent any outrages or tumults, the guards a bout the town are treble in number. A gentleman who arrived on Monday from the Continent fays, that when he left the Hague lalt Tuesday, they were in hourly expectation of hear ing that the Emperor was dead. As that is a place of the firft political information, it may be iuppofed that the Emperor is really in a very critical situation. So extensive are the revenues of some Polish npblemen, that Count Potocki, Grand Maiter of the Artillery, and Commander in Chief in the Ukraine, will alone pay to Government, as his (hare of the 10 per cent, on his lands, the an nual subsidy of 30,000 florins. There never was known in the history of France such tumults as have arisen within the latl few weeks, throughout almost all the Provin ces. We may suppose, that from the frenzy which has seized the people, that the scarcity of grain mult have been nearly equal to a famine, or that there has been gross negledt in the infe rior offices of government. All hopes of peace between their Imperial Ma jesties and the Porte, are entirely dissipated ; 011 the contrary, every tiring announces a bloody campaign, from the preparations that are mak ing by each of the contending powers. Ihe Turk is allembling his forces ; and the ci ty of Conllantinople, as well as all its environs, iwarm with troops, which are continually joining 'lie armies of the Grand Vizier, and of the Pacha e Romelle ; nevertheless, our letters fay, that Jmong that immense multitude, there are very W cavalry. The Emperor of Germany, on the other hand, is Very diligent. His army aflein ed in the Bannat, to oppose that of the Grand Vizier, will consist of 48 battalions, and of the j"ne number of squadrons, besides Huflars. Ie corps of Prince Holicnlohe, and Prince Saxe ~° ourg, are already 011 their march, the firl ,i°iii "11 anfilvania, the feconcl from Moldavia, utending to penetrate into Wallachia, in ordei 0 aain concert with the Ruffians.

In whatever light the fubjedt is viewed, no reasonable man can find any apology for such obltinacy and verfenefs. Perhaps no part of the United States is so illy fituaied to maintain afepaiate indepen dence. The hour is approaching when Congress will be under the neceility of some kind ot inter ference ; and though we entertain the moil ex alted ideas of the justice and moderation of that illustrious body, we Itill believe they will not quietly fufFer the Revenue to be defeated by the iniquitous conduct of a State, which they can so easily controul. It is with pleasure we inform our readers, that forfeveral days past the business of Congress has progrefled in such a degree, that several very im portant bills have arrived nearly to completion. The public expectation, which has been so long awake, will soon be gratified with the arrange ments that are to put our government into ref pe<slable operation. When the various and com plicated objetfts are examined, which were neces sary to be brought into view, the liberal temper of our countrymen will readily acquiesce in the delays that have happened ; and it must afford great fatisfatflion to all patriotic men, that the public impatience hath nothianifefted itfelf, con sidering the ardor of hopes they entertained of advantages from the origination of the executive departments. We indulge the pleasing anticipa tion, that the President may soon commence his appointments, and that Our affairs will be put in to a ftateof prosperity ahd dignity. If men contemplated the advantage andliappi nefs that resulted from industry, we lliould find that the public regulations would prevent idle ness by instituting modes of employment for citizens of all ages, and descriptions. Theefta blifhment of such manufactures as can employ children,and infirm,aged people, will produce the greatest utility. It would snatch many a vicious youth from the paths of perdition, and make them ufeful and virtuous. Perhaps no circumstance marks so much the defective state of society in this country as to behold such numbers of inha bitants unemployed, merely for the want of suit able objedls about which they can be engaged. Humanity no less than patriotism calls for legi slative attention, as Well as for the efforts of nio nied men, to bring about a reformation in this refpetft, and to invent and adopt methods tor fiving employment and bread to the idle and in igent of eveiy poflible denomination. Frequent allusions are made to the period, when the people of the United States lhall rea lize the importance, dignity, and security of an independent nation : The profpedl only of this event has excited more refpeiftlul ideas of the union, than all the partial, temporary regula ting commercial fyfteins of the individual States put together ; and if we have magnanimity as a people, to carry into prompt execution, thole acts and regulations, which will receive the fiat of our National Legislature, we lhall evince that we merit the station, to which, by the favor of Heaven, we are exalted. To inspire the people with confidehCe in the new government, itfeemsneceffary that those who are deftinedto adminifterit, should discover this con fidence in thefirft instance : T his can be done in no way so effectually, as by a firm and decisive a vowal of principles congenial to the spirit of the Constitution, and bringing those principles into view by enacting laws, which lhall have a prompt, independent, and energetic operation. " If we may judge from their writings and their conduct, the French seem determined to regain a part, at least, of that liberty which their fore fartlier's enjoyed in so much plenitude as to be distinguished by the appellation of the Franks. There is a time when old falhions, even in po litics, become new again !" The Proceflion ofthe King of Great Britain on the 24th April, to St. Paul's Church, to return thanks for his recovery, was the most fylendid exhibition ever beheld in London. The most agreeable part of the late Proceflion in London, was five thousand fix hundred chil dren, belonging to the Charity Schools. A noble specimen of humanity and benevolence !
