m.re an Englishman than a Hossian, a very
ndit1crent.idea would be'formed of his talents,,
to admit rliat he could suppose that 60, 80 or
t oo.OOt) Russians were competent to disgrace
Franca, to induce - her to bend to the British
yoke, to abandon Belgium, and to force the
tmperor to resign Jus Italian crown to the
"degenerate race of the Sardinian sovereigns.
-Ttie Russian troops are brave,' but infinitely
Jess so than the French. Their generals are
ijujte inexperienced, and their soMiers so ig
norant and stupid, as to render their arms
by no means redoubtable. ,' -f
Supposing moreover the possibility of the

It wat strongly reported at Berlin, when

not a Very improbable speculation.
( There seems no doubt that the Elector of
Bavaria is to be Hing 5 and that Eugine Beau

But there is a talk of setting up another

It is certain that Buonaparte hat been plea
sed to accept the Grand Electoral Order
presented to him by the Elector of W irtcm

Jeon has demanded of the Elector of VVir
temburg, the whole population of whose do
'mlhions does not exceed half a million, an
immediate aid of 10,000 men. The Elector
has published a long and laboured address to
his subjeett mithe occasion. " ' !

that ever was remembered. A letter reviv

upwards of 200 houses were waihed away,
and not a vestige of them left behind ; a num
ber of persons, in endeavouring to save their
effects, lost their lives. To add to the disas
ter, nuinbersofkhipping were driven ashore,
and shivered to atoms, and many of the peo.
