IN the laf conlrence between the Grand Vizir
and the Int uncio ot the Emperor, the for-
mer gave the I er the mollt positive and unequi-
vocal proofs, t t the Sultan had nothing more
at heart than maintain the mot perfect har-.
mnnny and invio bl friendship with his Imperial
MHajlely. *
1 he Republic of Venice havebeen treated in a
very different flyle by the Divan. It has given the
Vcnecian, to unlerftantd, that it was its desire they
fhiolil make peace with the Tunillans; if they
di I ot, that the Porte would affift the latter with
all thle r torces. In confequence of this, their
Amn affador with 'imficulty obtained a delay for 75
days, and he ha teent Ieveral exprlefes to the Re-
rubic. The Balthaw of Seutariia s filppofed to
bhve fome orders re stive to this bufinefs. Thua
mrnch we know of a certainty, that the Venetians
hare entered into a treaty with Rmlia, which may

After the conqiiftI the Ifland, it wastnccifary
to take the city of Rioun ; in c,'iifqnence, battle
rise t wetereded to attack thl place, but the in
hibitants fled under four of a dark night, and

.ugif a. Many people areim dotbt whether
the teaB.ono -l- for the Wlprtioe at ofthe


Cardinal do Rohan, Oropd Almee r-france,
be the teal ones ; but as they are pubicl reported
at Vertfilles, they certainly merit lome degree of
credit. The fad is a follprs:-Mrn Bohmer, the
King'A jeweller, fome months ago, offered her
Majefty a diamond necklace of immenfm value
tie price fixed war 1,6ootaOollres. Her MaleAy
is fuppofed to have replied, that the tate ofher
finances did not admit oftr eexpndingfuch alum
on fo ufeleft a purehafe." On her Majefty'a refu-
fal, the jeweller endeavuered to difpoef of the
necklace Ibroad. In the interim a certain lady
De La Mothe came to the eweller's and told him,
" that the Queen would take the necklace on
condition of paying for It by infalments, and at
the fame time infited on the purchase being kept
a profound fccret." Mr. Buhmer did not think
proper to deliver the necklace on the strength of a
fuppofed letter from the Queen, which the lady
had brought, but required Tome better security.
The lady hereupon affured him, that one of the
Arir pcrfon about the Count Ihould be fent to finish
the bargain. This person proved to be the Cardi-
1nl tie Rohan, who after having called on Mr.
Bohmer, ftnt for him to bil hotel, and concluded
the punchafe for 1,4oo.o0o lives. The necklace
was delivered to Madame de La Mothe in return
for notes of her Maielty's, payable at driferrnt
times. the firfi of which for 400,o00 livrer, became
due the til of Adtlit.
The Caddinal having neglehed to take npthe
uilll tle jeweller, by means of a friend about the
Qeeln's person, laid hit complaint before her Ma-
icity, together with his v.ichers, aming which
was a letter of the Cardinal's own writing, in
vhch he fays he had delivered the necklace.
The Qjeen was fit n.ch furprifed at thefe nn-
accountable proceedings, and fe unwilling to be-
lieve that any one could have been guilty of fich
grofs impudence, that the took ten days to exa-
mine into this mvflery, and obtain the fulleft
proof, before the would mention it to the King.
On Sunday her Majefty htrfilf informed the
King of it, and on Monday the Cardinal was ar-
iefted.

On Tucdfday evening the Cardinal was Cent to

The Grand 4'moner is the firlt Cardinal that
has been atrelled tnceCardinal Polignac, for being
concerned in theconfpiacyof the Prince de Cella-
mare; this prelate was banlihed, but not confined.
His Eminence Is attended in the Baftile by three
servants, and is permitted to fee the Prince de
Souhife and the PrinQfs de MaCran ; he alffires
his friends that he Is the vitim of an intrigue,
and behaves with the reateft fortitude and

will abrogate the laft prohibitory laws ilued fro0

meetig of Parliamen*.
St nmrir The French bave at laft fieceeded
In their long proje~cd deign of reviving the Eaft-
(ndia trade by it ancient channel. through the
gtlfof Perllaand by wayof Alexindria. Every
thing we are afifred Is nnally fettled with the
Beys of Egypt and the Chiefs of the Arabs of
the Defart, who in consideration offme trillin
duties have agreed to enfurs the fate paltie of
the caravans, and to grant them proper efforts.
Though this negotiation wa carried on with the
greatest fecrecy, the Englilh reading in Egypt had
notice of it, and ufed ever effort to reader it
abottv. hut without fucces.
It till however remains a great doubt whether
thin trade will answer the sanguine epnctdations
formed from it. The moment the paflage to In-
dia by the Cape of Good Hope was discovered,
the track now attempted to be opened was ahin-
doned. The difficulties of land carriage, efpe-
cially through fuch inhofpitable defarts as thofe
of A.abia, where whole armies have perthned;
the rapacity and treathery of the chiefs of thofe
tribes who will always rife in their demands ac-
cordint to the riches of tie caravan, and ifthey
find them more il than ordinary, will, from their
'nf"it;ale thirft of plunder, make no fcruple, as
has often been found by experience, of feizing the
whole, and which they will be the m-re readily
induced to, a. no po.wr Nan pnnih the delin.
quent all1 there circumfiances muft render the
trade fo dangerous, expensive, and precariouse
that no reafanable expectation can be formed of
its ever fnieceding.
The Duke of Newcaflle, and without any
fpccflic ailment, is to much broken of late, that
he cannot he expended to laft much lonyr. An
event therefore comes in view, which however it
may be a private loft, will benefit the public to
the great amount ofthirty thousand pounds a year ;

when he rut the Pells from him, and gave there~

RitraR of a letter from Dublin, AtuguI ry.
A trade to all the world Is extremely capa.
cions in idea among Irilhmen, but the moaf diffi
cult of being reduced to practice of any thing we
know. Some diftrelhng examples could be pro.
diced that this is the fai. On the conclusion of
the late war, there arefe a kind ofjfror to ruft
with all our goods into the American mark, t,, and
return with mountains of gold. What was the
confrqnence ? The Americans conftralned all ma-
nufadures, &c. to be handed over to American
Agents; thofe American Agentp foreftalled the
fal, and told the Irlih Supercargo, that he mult
either take fich and luch prices for his goo4s, or
leave them on credit. He generally chofe the
wife alternative, and at the lotr of perhaps a
third in value returned home, deceived and cha-
grined. There are at this hour men who had
inre d up warehoukfe of goods In this city for the
American market, and ending It inelecf to fend
any there, are firtggling with diffi' i with-
out being able to vend their manufa&ures. Sluc
are the dirfapointments attending a trade with a
