in the beautiful plain of Vienna, such as are found in the neighbourhood of a great capital, were burnt during the battle. The just hatred of the nation is loudly expressed against the guilty men who have drawn upon it all these calamities.

Twenty-seventh Bulletin.

"On the 10th the Duke of Rivoli be at the enemy's rear-guard before Hollabrun.

"At noon on the same day, the Duke of Ragusa, who had arrived on the heights of Znaim, saw the enemy's baggage and artillery filing off towards Bohemia. General Bellegarde wrote to him that Prince John of Lichstenstein would repair to the Emperor with a mission from his master, for the purpose of treating for Peace; and in consequence desired a suspension of arms. The Duke of Ragusa replied, that it was not his power to accede to such a proposition; but that he would acquaint the Emperor with it. while he attacked the enemy, drove him from an excellent position, made some prisoners, and took two colours.

The General of Brigade Guiton made a fine charge with the 10th cuirassiers.

The Emperor, informed that Prince John of Lichenstein, who had been sent to him, was arrived within our posts, ordered the fire to cease. The annexed Armistice was signed at midnight at the Prince of Neufchatel's. The Prince of Lichtenstein was presented to the Emperor in his tent at two o'clock in the morning.

Alexander Girardin, Colonel of the 8th regiment of dragoons, and M. Brun, Aide-deCamp to the Duke of Dalmatia, have passed through this city on their way to the headquarters of his Imperial Majesty in Austria, with dispatches from their Excellencies the Dukes of Dalmatia and Elchingen; copies of which have been delivered to the War Minister.

After the embarkation of the English t Corunna, January 17th, his Excellency the Marshal Duke of Dalmatia marched towards Portugal through Santiago and Vigo. The difficulties which he experienced in endeavouring to cross the Minho so near its junction with the sea, compelled him to ascend its banks as far as Orense, where he arrived the 5th of March, and from thence began his operations.

The 6th of March, he crossed the bridge over the Minho, at Orense, and on his way to Chaves met with Romana's army, which he defeated at Juzo, Allaritz, and Ösogue, near Monterey, destroying the rear-guard, consisting of 3000 men, and taking 2000 prisoners and some standards. The enemy then retreated in the greatest disorder to the vale of Oez. The 13th of March, the Duke of Dalmatia

appeared

appeared before Chaves, on the frontier of Portugal, and invested this place, which capitulated three days after. Its garrison, composed of several thousand peasants and some militia, were sent back to their habitations.

The 16th March, his Excellency marched against Braga, where the army of the Portuguese insurgents had taken a position. The badness of the roads delayed the arrival of the artillery until the 19th, when the enemy were attacked. Their force was estimated at 20,000 men, which were entirely overthrown. They lost 6,000 and all their artillery, and retreated upon Oporto.

The 24th, the second corps arrived before Oporto, where all the Portuguese northern armies were collected in an entrenched camp, flanked with redoubts, and defended by a numerous artillery.

Two days were spent in skirmishes; and the French troops found in the redoubts, of which they took possession, a shelter from the cannon of the enemy.

The 29th, the Duke of Dalmatia fought a battle as glorious as memorable, in which the French displayed their usual enthusiastic valour. Upwards of 10,000 Portuguese were killed or taken, and the enemy lost, not only the artillery planted on their entrenchments, but their field-pieces. This day put the second corps of the army in possession of more than 200 pieces of cannon.

From the 30 of March, to May 10, the 3d corps was employed in establishing in that part of a country not wholly conquered, its communication with the 6th corps that remained in Gallicia. Large detachments were sent to Guimaraens and Valencia, in order to bring off the magazines which had been left at Tuy, and to scour the country. General Loison, whose death the English have lately published, was detached with the same intent against Amarante, Villa Real, and the adjacent country, with 2500 infantry, and 600 horse.

On the 10th of May, the vanguard of the Duke's army was on the Vouga. It was attacked by several thousands of foot, 1500 horse, and six pieces of cannon, which formed a part of General Wellesley's army, lately landed in Portugal. The vanguard retreated behind Feyra, and on the 11th recrossed the Douro, with the division of General Mermet. The increase of the British force in Portugal, and that of the Portuguese insur gents, through the influence of British gold, had, as early as the 10th, determined the Duke of Dalmatia to effect his retreat through Amarante, Villa Real, and Braganza, ascending the right bank of the Douro. But a numerous corps of English and Portuguese having compelled General Loison to evacuate Amarante, the Duke found it necessary to pass through the defiles of Salamonde, and, in order to gain two marches of the enemy, to sacrifice a few pieces of cannon and their caissons, which he ordered to be destroyed, and

the remains of which could prove of no us to the English.

The latter not having been able to gain any advantage on the second corps during the retreat, the only action which took place was with our rear guard at Oporto, the English having found means to convey on the right bank of the Minho about 1000 infantry and50 horse. They have swelled this trifling engagement into a battle, the pompous relation of which (in no point of view a military one)has no other end than to deceive the people of London, and perhaps the Ministers themselves, in order to pay them for the immense sums of money which this expedition must. have cost the British Treasury.

On the 19th of May, the Duke of Dalmatia was at Allaritz; the 20th he crossed the Minho at Orense; and on the 23d formed a communication with the Duke of Elchingen. himself, and the corps under his command. Bulletin of the Imperial Austrian Army. Wolkerfdorf, June 18.

On the 15th inst. the corps under his Impe rial and Royal Highness the Archduke John, composed of about 20,000 troops of the line, and 16,000 of the Hungarian Insurrection, in the environs of Raab, vigorously attacked by the French army, estimated at 59,000

men.

The troops of the line fought the whole day with the greatest success, and the enemy suffered a loss of 2000 men in killed and wounded. But as the right wing, consisting for the most part of the Insurrection, that could not be expected to possess the courage of veteran troops, was no match for the enemy, his Imperial and Royal Highness thought it most proper for the attainment of his object to fall back to a position near Comorn, and thereby to secure and facilitate his junction with the main army.

But this has caused no material change in the positions of the Imperial and Royal army; and the Archduke John praises highly the excellent disposizion and patriotic alacrity of the troops of the Hungarian Insurrection.

The Imperial and Royal troops suffered in this engagement a loss of 1300 men in kil led, wounded, and some few prisoners. About 400 Frenchmen were made prisoners by the Austrians. The enemy, so far from pursuing the Austrian troops, had again retreated behind the Razb. Dalmatia is again in the possession of the Imperial and Royal troops. The enemy has been obliged to abandon Zeng and Fiume, as well as the islands along the Dalmatian coast. Gen. Marmont retreated in such haste, that the Austrians made a number of prisoners. In the hospitals, too, the enemy left a number of wounded, among whom are three French Generals, and one of them Launay. Trieste must by this time be delivered from enemies. The English on the one hand, and the Turks on the other, make common cause with the Austrian troops.

INCIDENTS, MARRIAGES, AND DEATHS, IN AND NEAR LONDON: With Biographical Memoirs of distinguished Characters recently deceajed. WHOEVER has been in the habit of passing it. An Act called "The Surrey Drain

ing along the Surrey side of the Metropolis, must have observed the stagnant and putrid ditches with which it abounds. This monstrous nuisance has been increasing annually with the increased number of houses, and at last it became necessary to obtain the sanction of the Legislature to a plan for abat

age Bill," was passed before the close of the late Session, and will be speedily carried into effect. The object is to run a large barrel drain through part of Lambeth, St. George'sfields, and the Borough, through which a part of the Thames will pass without obstruction, and into which all the smaller drains and

ditches

ditches shall be emptied. It will begin and communicate with the River a little below Westminster-bridge, cross Pedlar's-acre, come into the New Cut, pass through Charlottestreet, cross Blackfriar's-road, near Mr. Hill's Chapel, and proceed along Queen-street and Union-street into the Borough. It will then be carried forward through King-street, turn on the left by Guy's Hospital, and cross Tooley-street into Bridge yard, where it will again communicate with the river. The whole extent of this drain will be one mile and three quarters; and it will have a gradual fall, from beginning to end, of near 15 leet. It is for the purpose of increasing this fall that it will be carried below London Bridge. The expense is to be borne by a Tate on all the parishes through which the sewer passes.

In the night of Saturday, July 8th, a dreadful fire broke out in the house of Miss Starke, milliner and dress maker, Conduitstreet, which burnt that and several houses adjoining.

The new Commercial Dock, at Deptford, was opened on Friday, June 30, for the reception of foreign merchantmen. It is the Dock formerly known by the name of the Greenland Dock. It has received several alterations and improvements, and an entire Jy new range of storehouses has been erected. The Lord Mayor's barge, handsomely decorated, was the first to enter. She was followed by three vessels laden with timber, iron, and tar, under Sweedish colours. They were received by a salute from several pieces of cannon, and cheered by an immense concourse of spectators. After the vessels were moored, the principal proprietors, and a select party, to the number of about 150, partook of an elegant dinner in one of the storehouses. The dock is intended principally for the Baltic trade.

The Court of Common Council have agreed to give the Governors of Bethlem Hospital, in exchange for the Site of the Hospital, a parcel of ground in St. George's Fields, where the governors intend to erect a building for the same purpose (on the spot lately occupied by the Dog and Duck), together with an open space of about eight acres, for air and exercise for the lunatics.
