perceiving that he alone could not succeed in

ters. Ventured to go himself in person" and
ortng toe English squadron with which be
bad threatened the Piyan for so long a time.
It was n the afternoon of the SiOlh of Febru
ary that intelligence was received here of that
fleet, consisting of seven ships of the line, 3
of whicli were 113, J 6Vsj and 2 ?4's, .be
side 2 frigates of 48 and two fire ships, ha--ving
passed the Streights of ihe Dardanelles
almost without any resistance, a few hours af
terwards it was seen casting anchor three
leagues fom Constantinople. ,.Vtv",v.iA
1 be ' appearance of these forces, which
found us in some measure' unprovided, exci
ted at first an unfavorable sensation upon the
minds of the inhabitants. rThe Divan flself
seemed uneasy and irresolute.' A great con
sternation spread throughout the city. f
1 be French ambassador, without suffering
himself to be moved by the effects of that cri
sis, threw hlmsell as it were upon the neim,
undertook to inspire courage and confidence,
and to drag out o order for ; defending the
ritir. ' H 4nriide(L Frrtm that . moment
the French' military- obtained every thing,.
from the good will of the ministry and the
Turkish engineers. , f be people teeing in
the morning the disposition which had been
made during the night, showed themselves
disposed to second this movement of ener-
'gy''' ''..-' .'.'' ". VVr-cv
The preparations for defence could hot yet
however be very considemblek ,They con
sisted only in a battery of 13 pieces of cannon,
hastily thrown up before , Tophaea. , another
battery of 10 cannon placed on the coast of
Asia 1 and lastly in four or five small cqnnons
which bad beeh put upon an advanced towen

, Happily the English admiral though he had
with bun Sir Sidney Smith and fire ships,
knew not how to take advantage of this mo
ment, he suffered himself to be driven into a
kind of negociatjon with lb. Pons carefully
kept in suspence until s'ie found Jyerself in a
situation to repulse every aggression. . The
dispositions that were' making toon, put her
in a state to raise her tote, apd she.Kjectcd
the odious propositions of the enemy. ' We
had at that lime 300 pieces of cannon inbaw
tery, morters and howitzers 3 ovens for red
hot bullets in activity, 300,C0C men armed
with rifles and fusils and animated with the
best spirit, 80 gun shalopt forming the ad
vanced guard of nine ships.of the lint 1 six
heavy frigates and tix corvettes in the Road J
and five large ships in front of the fort ...
All this hat contributed no tiule to thorttn
the negociaiioa. The English Admiral judg
ing, tie doubt from these disposition', that si
milar measures would be taken to shut the
passage of the DirdanelleS against him, has
tened, after having reconnoitred oUr position,
to make his retreat. He hat passed, the Dar
danelles! but the Turkish garrison anima
ted by the example of the capital, fired det
perately from the only, battery which time
bad allowed to erect there ., It disabled and
retook the corvette which the, English had
taken on their passage anu it sunk apolacre
loaded with' ammunition Four , days Ulrr,
and the enemy would pot have come out so
easily.- - " ' ' ,
The English Ambassador hsJY In hit ne
gotiation with the Divan, demanded as pre
limmtries, thtt the Porte should turn sway
the I'totich Ambasader and the whole' lega
tion l that hostilities should from that mo
ment cease with Itussis that every arma
ment, fortification, and erection of batteries,
should immediately be suspended at Con
.stantmoplci that the treaty of alliance wuh
England should be renewed 1 that a treaty cf
alliance with Russia should be concluded 1
that an Lnlih and Russian Garrison should
be established at the Dardanelles and in the
' castles of the Dotphortts ; that an Fncltsh-
garrison should be cstablmhed at Alexandria,
and a "Russian garrison in one of the Mareas j
and lastly that there should be put imnieJi
