, , Downing Stiver, March 3D, 181.
A letter of which the following are extracts, has
thii day been received at Bail Baihurst's Office,
addressed to hisLordship, by Col. Hamilton, Lieut.
" In my letter, dated 17th insK I had the honor
to represent to your L irdship, that in consequence
of the effect which the glorious succesu of the
Russian arms produced, and the favorable reports
irom different parts of the Hanoverian coast, I de
termined immediately to lake every step, which
the inconsiderable force at my disposal would ad
mit of, to promote the great and just j cause.
Lieut Banks proceeded with two gun brigs re
inforced bynwo a.rjeants and 30 veterans, to Cox
ha-r from' which the French had departed with
great expedition, after destroying (ill their gun
boats, artd. dismounting the guns from the strong
works constructed for the defence of the harbour.
On a summon from Lieut. Banks, the castle of
Ritxehuttle, and batteries of Cuxhaven were sur.
rendered, to be at the disposal of his Majesty by
the Burghers; and the British and Hamburg Rags
were immediately displayed.
- Major Konteinger, "an officer perfectly qualified
lor auch a mission, was sent to Cuxhaven, having
the Kreat theatre of war between the Vistula arjd

the Elbe. , Th accounts which they afford are of
course unofficial, and must, therefore, in come
degree, partake of the usual characteristics of
rumor ; but, alter makiug due allowance Tor
this circumstance, enough remain to satisfy us
that the Russian arms, and the irreat cause of
national independence, are advancing with the
most triumphant, and almost unresisted progress.
One of the most ting and curious facts,
which our private correspondence, communicates,
is, that the Great Personage lately arreted on
the continent, and who has been the subject
of so mucMpeculation " various journals. i no
othet than th Prince Royal of Bavaria. This
Ulusui 'and patriotic princ has been long
known at an inveterate' enemy of Bonaparte. A
bout two. years ago he was put under arrest, in
consequence of being discovered to have formed
a plan for a new confederation of the German
States, in opposition to the Confederation of the
Rhine, and, with a view to rescue his country
from its degradation. He, at that time, Showed
a clear insight into all the objects, views and mo
lives pf the oppressor of Europe ; and would pro
bably'have experienced all the severity of his ven
geance,' if it had . not been for the intercession of
the father of the King of Ba varia, one of the most
abject, and at the same time, most powerful of

The accounts frona Dennaark' continue to bear
a favorable aspect. Indeed, the King, who has
lately overawed by th French force in his neigh-
Dorhooq, is now nearly in the same state with
respect to the Allies. sBy great and ( continued
exertibns he has collec'ed a repectable military
force, to maintain his independence ; but the to
tal decay of trade, and consequent dilapidation of
htVnncea. readers it utterly impossible that he
should engage in active hostility on Xny great
seal.. The negociations which he has already
opened will therefore doubtless proceed j but,
perhaps, it is of litile importance under exis'ing
circumstances to secure more than the neutrally
ol Denmark. In another point of view the. reli
live situation cf that Court may, perhaps, be. im
poitaot, as affording a medium of communication
with Austria. The last 'letters state, that an Aus
trian oinccr and Dunish nobleman were on the
pointof embarking for this country.
