" This gay city presents very little orthnn
tice, except a wonderful pile of building
a cathedral. This cathedral is undergoing av7
ry neceflary tho expensive repair, directed L
that great artist, Wyatt. Had he never done an v
work before to render his name conspicuous as an
architect, the taste and genius displayed in the
alteration and modernization of the choir is f u (?i
cient to transmit his name to posterity with ado'
ation. A fubfeription is set on foot here for erect
ing a monument near the south door, to that Co
101 l lis of literature, the late Dr. Johnson who
was a native of this place. A similar compliment
has been mentioned to the memory of'our departed

neighbourhood of Hampton, inMiddlefex, should

L xtr a(I oj a letter from Tangier s, June 1,
" The Kmperor Morocco's troops have gained
a great victory over the Arabs, in the province
of Teifna, and 600 of their heads have been fern
to Algiers This victory was proclaimed thereby
repeated discharges of cannon."
To the account of the battle between the Ruf
fians and Swedes at Undermalm, we have to add
these farther particulars. At the departure of the
Courier which carried the news of the KinoV vic
tory,the Kingwas on his route to Wilinanftrandt,
the place where the Rullians keep their principal
magazines, and which commands an entranceinto
their country. In the mean time, General Sie
grotli advanced with another corps towards Fre
dericklham to block up that place by land, while
General Kaulbars, with a tliird detachment went
up the river Kymene ; and Count Ekrenfward
was ordered to land from his fleet, a body of
5000 men, between Frederickfham and Hogforb,
to attack the Ruffian army, near the firft men
tioned place. From these different arrangements,
this campaign promises to be as bloody and deci
sive as the last was peaceable.
The following is reported to be the circum
stance to which the Duke of Dorset alludes, in
the second paragraph of his letter to the Count de
Montmorin :—The nobility of Brittany have ne
ver sent deputies to the National Aflembly, but
perceiving the troubles which were brewing, and
torefeeing the consequences which have ref'ulted,
they resolved to seize an opportunity of shaking
offtheir allegiance to France, and rendering that
Province more independent than it had hitherto
For that pnrpofe, rumour fays, they made a
proposal to the English Ambaflador, of putting
themselves under the protection of Great-Britain,
as a tributary Hate, to be governed by the old
feudal system ; and offered to place the port of
Brest in the hands of the English, as a recompence
for their services, and a surety of allegiance. In
order to accomplish their design, the Duke of Dor
set was to procure from his Court a fleet in readi
ness to protecfl the Province, and an armytoaffift
them in their endeavours to carry the attempt in
Extra(} from the JOURNAL of the NATIONAL
ASSEMBLY of FRANCE.
A report was made in the Aflembly, that the
Parliament ofßefancon had sent a deputation to
Vezoul, toa<ft with the Judge Royal in enquiring
into the late horrid maifacre, but that the people
had ri fen upon them and obliged them to return,
that, in consequence, the Parliament had iflue»
an arret, renouncing their jurifditftion, and hM
submitted the affair entirely to the consideration
of the National Assembly.
The following motion made by Count Laliy>
in the National Aflembly, the 24th of July
and carried at one o'clock (aftermidnight) niuf
give a very favorable opinion of the head arm
heart of thatyoungNobleman, who makes sod) ■

'l he motion was as follows :
" The National Aflembly, considering, 1 3 J
