His Britannic Majesty's Ihip S viftfure, off
Cadii, the 22d of July, 1800.
I have this moment received vour letter
of the 13th inli. and in reply, I bejj leave to
refer you to Keith's letter of the sth
of December, 1799, '» which you mil rib-;
serve, that the Co.ifuls of all the nations in
amity with Great-Brltaia, have beefi duly
informed of the blockade ot Cadiz, and that;
any vessel attempting- to enter, or to fail
frorp'that port, would be detained and pro
ceeded igainft according to law. I .am di--
re£led as tar as poflihle, to enforce the bloc
kade, and I eannot allow any laden vrflthto
depart from Cadiz, iinjefs Ihe has a pass from
the commander in chief of his Britannic ma
jesty's fleet in the Mediterranean , but niu
tral vetTelg without cargo will not be nio
lefted, the Pjvplper, American (hip excepted,
which entered Cadiz alter being warned not
to do so, and wat r.lear d out for A brier?
It is very probable that several vefTils may
have efcaped,our cruise's, and got into C.i
diz, but some of his Majesty's fliips have al
ways been off the port.
Vessels departing from C.;diz in ballast,
are to endeavour to lpeak any Britifli men of
war they imt/ Tall in within the neighbour
I have the honor to be, Sec.
To the refpeftive Neutral Consuls, resident
in Cadiz.
From late London paper.
The young King of Sweden is about S
feet 11 irches high. He is well limbed,
and muscular- H i fore) ead arched and
prominent; his eyes penetrating. He in
general *ralk> quick, but on parade is state-
Jy and warlike ; his afprA is open and his
manners si anks* 7he mod favored am :>ng
the authors he usually reads is L vy, of
whose relation of battles and speeches he
has been known t0 express a romantic ad
miration but it was the remark of his pri
vate tutor, that always af'er reading the
life of his ancestor Charles XII. he roamed
about several days in search of some grand
adventure. •• But, obfervts a German Jour
nalist, " this young King pnfieffes little of
the enthusiasm of the rival of Peter the
Great." ,
Belle- Ifie, (to which it is supposed the
Expedition is direfted) is an Island of
France, 115 miles off the coall of the de
partment of Morbihan. It is ij tnies
long 5 broad, and diverfified with craggy
mountains, salt-works and fertile plains It
was taken by us during 1 the 7 yea:s war,
in 1761, and reflored at the peace of 1763.
The following singular occurrence was
lately communicated by the Prefect of the
Department of the Var (county of Nice)
to the French minister ot the interior :
The mountain of Fondndes forms part of
the chain of the I ower Alps, which runs
along the right bank of the Var- It is
abut 300 metres above the level of the
Mediterranean ; its fouthe n base is wafhtd
by the Var. In the course of last June
there was observed that cn the foothern
declivity of this mountain frme parts had
funk. The ground opened in the clefts
and sensibly fell in. The upper part soon
felt tVe effe&s of this, and, by the parallel
linking of the ground the mountain appeared
like an amphitheatre. At last the weather
calm and the (fcv firene, the top of the
mountain fuddently gaveaway, with a noise
like thunder- The ground shaken to pieces
by the (hock rolled down the declivity
like a torrent of lava, and flopped only by
a hilock at the foot of the mountain. The
quantity of ground displaced is estimated at
20 millions of cubical metres. It lilled up
a whole valley, buried several country houses
and covered the tops of the highest trees
over the furface of a quarter of a fyuare
leagues. Notwithstanding this enormous
(hock, the ground dill continncs to fink,
Hr.d we dread a f cond perhaps as diaftrous
as the firft.
The Danish ship Norway, Captain OfTon,
arrived at Diamond harbour from Batavia
on th- 12th January. By this ftiip we
learn the loss of the American ship CereS,
last from the Isle of France, which was
wrecked in the month of Oftwber, uponthe
Island Anguna. Part of the crew arrived
at Basvia in the jolly boat belonging to the
Ceres, with about four or five thoufatid
dollars part of the trcafure with which the
■vefTcl had been freighted. By the accounts
of these people, as soon as the Ceres had
struck, the Captain and ftiips company
fought the shore in boats, carrying the trea
sure with them 5 upon their landing, the
natives cam.e down upon them, and the Cap
tain in order to conciliate their good will,
advanced towards them with t' e supercar
go, and one or two pafTengers. making
signs of fubmiflion : the attempt was vain,
for the savages immediately put them to
death; the reft witnefied this brbarity,
betook themselves to flight, and found re
fuse in the woods. The party who sur
vived to relate the above, vilited the shore at
dusk, and found the jolly boat lying there
with the tteafure, but Hove. I hey howe-
ver contrived to repair the damages by the
application of their jackets to to the leak,
and prosecuted the perilous way to Batavia.
