GOPE^^^AG^N, Auguft JO.
L ast Saturday a mefienger arrived
from the caur^of London j^and"
jt IS laiddie brings the important iivteL
iigence that Great-Britain approves of
the Court of Denmark in granting the
emprcfs all the fuc:ouis againft'^T-'

llrongly againd our taking an aftivc

Sea, is arrived off this porti and has
brought in four more Swedifh mer

LONDON, Oftober lo.
Orders have been aftually given by
the Danifh government, for fupplying
their ally, the empreff cf Rmffia, with
the naval and military fff)rcs ffipulaied
. between Denmark and the court of
Peteriburgh, which has been formally
announced to the Swedifh minifter at
Copenhagen by order of the Prince
Royal. Upon receiving this very un
welcome piece of news, the Swedifh
ambafiador at the court of Denmark,
difpatched the fame evcning,two couri
ers, one to the King at^Finland; the
other to Berlin. The prince royal is
faid to'have exprefted himfclf in very
ffrong terms of indignation, at the very
unwarrantable conduft of Sweden
towards RufTia, and fays, that all the
force of Denmark fliall be exerted in
the caufe of Ruffia, and Tier allies, if
ncccflary. Wc are alfo allured, that
various private conferences have been
had with the Prince of Orange, Sir
James Harris, and the Swedifh and
Prullian Minifters at the Hague, in
confcqucnce of which, couriers were
immediately difpatched to Berlin and
Stockholm, and Sir James Harris was
to leave the Hague in” a few days, for
the purpofe of confulting the Britiflt
court, on the prefent critical fituation
of affairs in the North. It is faid to
be the opinion of men of the foundeft
knfe, and deepeft penetration in Hol
land, that his pruftian Majftly confi-
ders the prefent moment as a favour
able one to eftablifti his own charac
ter and confequence, by humbling his
rival, the Emperor,-for many years to
come. This idea is ftrengthened by
knowing of his having furnifhed the
court of Sweden with large fupplies of
money, as well as having been princi
pally inftrumehtal in kindling this
new flame, which has broken out
with fo much violence in the North.
The ^ following js asixaft "and jiift"
an account bf the -proceedings of the
prefent billegereht powers as can be
collefted from their gazettes, and inr
formation. ^ ^ i .

Turks, with a view to extirpate them
from Europe,, and the Crimea entire

fible, the Black Eagle on the turrets of

pretences for making war. V ”
Sweden—taking an advantage of the
war in which Ruffia is involved, afpir-
ing to recover the whole, of Finland,
but wanting the means, and defeated
by her citizens. ®
The Ottoman power in Europe, ex
cept the declared enemies, Ruffia and'
Germany contending with thefe two
upon the Turkifh territories, and pro
vided with every advantage that a
knowledge of the country, and re-
fource of men ahd guns unknown to
any other nation can give. *
As to the progrefs of this war—the
Turks have not loft an inch of ground
—the Imperial armies have expended,
an'immenfetfcafure, loft many thoiiT
lands of their troops by difeafe,, and
have gainedir-a little reputation !

Ruflia's letter, written by herfclf, and
conveyed by a fpecial courier to the
Admiral Grcig, after the aftion with
the Swedilh fquadron in July Lift ;

that every part of our dominions
where this event lhall be tranfmitted,
