In the whole contents of the Paris papers
that arrived on Wedncfday evening, we find
but one tiling of importance, the double change
which has taken place in the Adminiflrations
of Vienna and of Paris. From thi 3, though
no pafitive ccnfrqucMices can bs deduced, we
way, at leall, dpw fonie probably inferences.
The appointment of Count Le'nroach, a man
whom a paper of yellerday uujuttly calls weak,
in the room of B iron Thugut, appeals to in
dicate that the political system ofihe latter is
not abandoned, while the nomination of Count
Cobentaf!,.lu a Negociat'orat Luneville has
a contrary afpeft. It is not impoflible to
reconcile tlitr—appsfeKt oppositions. Wt
may suppose that the former has been done
WJthjiti intention of preducing fatisfaftion
art] Vienna, and the latter with a view to
tiie lame objeft at Paris. It is poflible that
the party which has placed Count Lehrbach
in Admiftratien, may 110: have been dis
pleased that a person foreign to them (houltl
have been entrufled with the negociation for
peace—Count Cobenzel will naturalty be a

vhat must be ratified there. His commilTion
may not operate so much in favour of peace
•as fonae persons imagine. The fending of a
' ""Pruffian Minister, M. Dohnr, defervrj to
• be remarked, and will have a particular in
fluence on the iflue of the Congress. It
will be time to turn our attention to it when
.the faft (hall be better authenticated.
The Cnief Gonful appears desirous ot
rivaling another Foreign Gorernmenti in
its mutability in the choice of Miniftersand
Generals. This imitation of the policy of
ought not to be pafled over
•without observation : it Ihews very little
corfiftency in the ideas of Buonaparte, or

in men who having been formerlv his equals,

SIR SIDNEY SMITH.
In the begtning of last month a Jlag of
trucorrWed from Mahon, at Barcelona. It
brought about'los prisoners, Spanilh Lirgai
an and French rescued by the English from
Turkifli llavery. The cruelties they had
experienced would freeie the foul. An?ong
them was young Thevnsrd, son of Theven
ard of Toulon. He 4iad 101 l a brother at
■the battle ef Abouker ; and he "himfclf had
languiflied in chain* among the Turks till
Sic Sidney Smith was apprised of the circum
flance. By means of letters and applications
of every kind Sir Sidney p ocured his re
lease. But this generous enemy did not
flop there -He furnilhed Thevenard with
money, clothes, Bcc. and recemmendations
to his brother at Cnnllantinople, and for all
the EngUlh naval officers. Sir Sidney carri
ed his generality so far as to equip an avi
so to go and find him at Rhodes.
'flie following fs a copy of one of the
letters—Thevenard has, out of gratitude,
prcferved them all. They teftify th"e plea
sure which Sir Sidney enjoyed in restoring a
son to his aged father, and in acknowledging
the efforts, tho' frnitlefs, made by the bro
ther of Thevenard to allevinte his captivity
at Havre, previous, to his removal to the
Coppy of a letter from Commodore Sir
Sidney Smith, to Gapt. Gabriel Theven
ard, on board the Tyger, June 15 1800 .
M. Thevenard is requeued to come and
dine with Sir Sidney Smith onboard the
Tyger this day at three. Sir Sidney Smith
takes tlve liberty to fend some clothes, which
lie fiippufcs a person escaped from prison may
require. Thefe,'*'however, are not of the!
best ; but excepting English uniforms, they j
are the only ones he has on board the Ty- '
ger, and they are the fame which Sir Sidney
wo.re from the Temple till his reaching the
tea—They will have done good ltrvice if
thejf trtlwtV tViefame purpoG; afccondtime
in, again re do ring « l'on to his agri father
dying of grief.
Letters from Nantz, dated O&ober 3,
fays" Ycfterdty evening, at feveti o'clock,
Gen. Clarke, with Ins ftiite, arrived here.
He alighted at the Temple of Prase, where
it is fuppofedj he will hold his relidence
during the Cong"-ef»« This morning the
General of the 4th military division, with
the whole of the Staff, vilited him, to con
fer relative to the preliminary operations of
the Congrefs-.-Every preparation is making
for the completion and decoration of the
places dc (lined for the re Tide nee of the Ple>
nipotenti.iiies ; the road* are covered with
articles of consumption, which are forward
ing to Luneville."
General Clarke, the bearer of the orders
of Government, and who is to command
extraoidinary at Luneville, and in the de
partment of the Meurthe, is arrived there.
After having conferred with the Sub Prc
fe£t, and the Mayor, he vilited in person
*ll the houses of the bed appearance ; he
spared no pains to procure for the Members
of the Congress lodpings and accommoda
tion suitable to their dignity.
Accounts from Marseilles state, thai the
garrison of Malta arrived there on jjie 30th
of September, to the numcer of 6000 men.
They are there undergoing quarantine.—
Gen. Vaubois has informed us, that the
unfortunate Dulomieu is freed from his fet
ters, and that he is in a chamber where he
can walk, read and write. General Graham
inter&lled himfelf much in his favour, and
-tfc that Gchtrnli we are indebted for the pre
fcrvation, at Malta, of the CahiiifX of Nat«-
ral History belonging to that itluftrioui per
son. It is now packing up in order to be
sent off for Paris.
We are informed from Cadiz, that an
EnglifW fleet, conlifling of about 180 trans
ports, cfcortfd by 16 (hips of the line, ap
peared before that city, and made the EecefT.i
ry preparation for eff»<f\ing a disembarkation.
We can hardly allow ourselves, however, to
believe, that the English will attempt a
coup-de-main again ft a place, the Situation
of which is painted in the following words
in a letter from Barcelona :
" As the malady becomes more alarming
at Cadiz, it ha 3 been thought proper to
fumigate all the letters which arrive from
thence. We are informed by the Ihft cou
rier, that during the four last days 732 per
sons died, and of 110,000 inhabitants, who
were in that beautiful but unfortunate city,
85,000, have quitted it. The immense po
pulation of the suburbs confifl only of un
happy wretches, whose dirtiness and poverty
add still to the horror of the disease, and
mud increase its »ravages.—There was at
Cadiz only one Sp.inifh regiment which was
much reduced by licknefs ; the sole defence
therefore of this city againlt the English, is
the contagion, which doubtless, they will
not venture to brave.
PARIS, OA. 11.
Gen. Berthier has again been appointed
Minister at War ; Carnnt it is said, will be
the colleague of Joleph Buonaparte, in car
rying on the Begociations at Luneville.
The news from the armies are now en
tirely unintfretVing. Tbey are returning
to their cantonments.—Moreau is. going to
Paris. There is now less probability thin
ever that their services will be required.
It is certain that M. Lifakewitz, late se
cretary as Legation, and now Charge d'Af
faires from Kulfia, has received orders
from his court to quit England, and to pro
ceed to Copenhagen, where he is appointed
ambaflador. * The Emperor his mailer, has
fignilied to him his fatisfaftion with his
condu£l in the situation he held here, parti
cularly line- the retirement of Count Wo—
ronzow. His Imperial Majesty likewise
presented him, we are informed, with 4000/
to enable him to appear at the Court of
Denmark with suitable fplendaur and dig
nity. On his departure, the Emperor of
Russia will have no official agent in this
country, as we have none at Peterfbr.rgh.
All"this routing is to be considered as previ
ous to the farreuder of Malta. What will :
be the comequence when that event is
known to his Imperial Majesty.
FRANCKFQRT, Oft. 5.
The Landgrave of Meffe Caffel Was adop
ted a sudden and untxpc&cd measures, by
putting all his troops on the war eftabliffi
ment. A certain number of men have been
letached from the garrison of Hanau, in
oitjer to procure tents and other requifities
at Caffel. The Landgrave betides has taken
into pay 8000 orf the militia, who will lerve

be conc:ived at a period when the armiltice
has been prolonged, and wken the moll ap
parent intimacy of the three belligerent
powers affords the best founded hopes of the
approach of peace. There is reason to lup

eventual in order that the Landrage may

midable preparations were making in Spain,
for the p.ttack of Portugal. A large French
army was again aflembling on the coast, to
excite, if pcffible, an alarm in England ;
but the vigilance of our fleets and army was
such as to remove all apprehension from their
