LONDON, DecNassal a6.
\N Friday a deputation of merchants in the Ameri-
Scan trade waited on the Marquisof Caermarthen,
Ships office in Cleveland Row, to propose fome new
nuoaiions in commercial bfinefs, previous to Mr.
men's going to France.
DeNeim.r 17. Yefetrday died, in Suffolk Street, Ca-
osdilhfquare, aged Tj, Sir Thomas Pye, Admiral of
Ak White, and LieutenantOeneral of Marine.
7ar.y 5 This being the day appointed for the
ehbation of the New Year, the uiual ceremonies
wer observed at St. James's. The King, Q.een,
priaeefs Royal and Princefs Augufta, came to the
qyaen's houfe to breakfaf, and afterwards went to the
iawing-room at St. James's, where a Court was held.
At soon the' following Ode written by Mr. Warton,

S P~E.AR to Jove, a genial Ille,
J Crowns the broad Atlantic wave;
The fca"ons there in mild ffemblage file,
And vernal blifoms cloath the fruitful prime;
There, in many a fragrant cave,
Dwell the fpirits of the brave,
And braid with Amalanth their brows fublime."
So feign'd the Grecian Bards, of yore;
And veit'd in Fablc'r fancy-woven vef
A visionary (hore,
That faintly gleam'd on their prophetic eye
Through the dark volume of futurity :
N r knew, that in the bright attire they dreft
Albion, the ;reen-hair'd Heroine of the Weft;
Ere yet the cl im'd oldOcean's high command,
And in tcn'd the tsident from the Tyrant's hand.

Vainly flow'd the myftic rhime ?
Marl: he dcee from age to age,
That fill her trophy-pidur'd page;
And fev. with all its strength, untam'd by time,
Still glows her valor' veteran rage.
O'c Cilpe cliff, ind tfeepy towers,
When 6ream'd the, red falphurqes fhow'rn,
And Death's own hand the dread artillery threw ;
While far along the midnight main
It'sgarinl arch the flaming volley drew ;
flow trumh'd Elliot's patient train,
Baffling their vain confederate foes!
And met th' unw ted fight's terrific form;
And hurling bac the burning war, role
SSuperior to.th fiery Ilerm

Beneath the torpid Pole,
Nor to the Iooding temper heaves ?

To search coy Nature's guarded mine,
She burRt the harrier of th indignant ice;
D'er funleft bayI e beam of Xience bears:

Hence then, each vain complaint, away
Each captious doubt, and cautious fear!

Nor deem that Albion's honours ceafe to bloom.
With candid glance th' impartial Mufe,
InTok'd on t o suspicious morn,

And breaks opinion' speculative gloom:
Interpreter of ages yet inborn,
Full right fhe fpells the charader. of fate,
That Albion fill fall keep her wonted ate :
Btill, in eternal ftory, thine,
Of Vidlory the fea-beat Ihrine ;
The force of every fplendid art
Of old, of future world#, the univcrfal Mart.
1Yanuary 6. It is certain chat Mr. Pitt has new mo-
defied the Irilh Propottions, and will undoubtedly
bring them forward again early in the enfuing fallions.
It is reported that Spain has positively demurred in
the matter rcfpe&ing the cefion of the two Floridas to
France : and that he has offered to cede both there
provinces to Great-Britain, on her providing an equi-
valent, which the French are faid not at this time to
potfers. Gibraltar is the place that the Court of Ma-
drid certainly point at.
UnIcs the Grand Signor should hazard a revolution
that may lend him from his throne to hie grave, by
sacrificing too much to the Court of Vienna and to
peace, a war is likely to break out between the two
formidable Emperors ot Germany and Turkey, the
former of whom will be fupported by the whole power
of Ruflia, the Emprefs of which wilies to fecure to
herself and liceeffor the polleflion of the Crimea, by
putting it out of the power of the Turks to affect their
ancient title to the supremacy over that vafal Province.
Our rcadcra will remember, that for fome time back
there have been negotiations between the Courtt*f
Vienna and Conflaltinople, in order to certain and
fix for ever-the limits and boundary e of the two Em-
pires; in the course of the laf month the Divan dell-
red to know the ultimatum of the Emperor of Gemany
,n this head; the following is prccifely the answer
which the Imperial Juleph has t-anfmitted to the Porte,
and which contains the final demands of the Court of
Vienna, from which the Emperor has declared he will
not depart in a tingle article.
t. That the Fartrefs of Wihaoo being abfelitcly
necefary, as well to fop the inroads of the wandering
hordes, as to prevent the defertion of his Imperial
Majelty's troops, the ceifon of the diftridh in Croatia,
litoated beyond the River Unna, (offered by the Porte)
cannot by any means be accepted, unless the above
Fortrcf* be included in the difiri& offered to be ceded.
s. If the Porte contents to cede to the Emperor
what belongs to it, in the Province of Wallachia, as
far as the River Unna, the Court of Vienna will con-
fent to wave its claim to an extentJn of its territories
as far as the River Save, and fufflr the boundaries of
Bofbia and Herzogewine, to remain in Rai yee.
3. Ilfthe Porte conftnt to the second propeftinn.
it will be then necetary that au often as there flal be
a quftion of depofin the Hofpodar or Prince of Wal-
lachi, in order to fubftitute another In hisplace, no-
tice muft be previously given to his Imperial Mijefly,
who Ihall be made acquainted with the motives of the
evolution; and the aforefaid Prince of Wallachia, for
he time being, faI be bound to deliver up all defer-
er> from the Aultrian amy, that may take refuge in
his dominions.
4. The troops ofhis Imperial Majcny flal be put
* poileffon of the Fortref of Orfowa.
j. On there terms his Imperial Majfly will observe
he rldleft peace, and cultivate a fincere amity with
he Sublime orte.
There term however are to very unfavourable to


the Turks, that it is not much erpeded at Vienna, the
Sultan will dare to accede to them; the mon obje&iot
unable is the third article, by which the Porte would
lof the foverelgty of Wallachia, the Prince of which
the could no longer depofe without the approbation of
the Emperor of ermany. This is not a mere matter
of etiquetteor ide; for by the frequent changes of the
Wallachin Prince, a very great revenue ariles to the
Porte on their inveftiture.
Matters in Holland begii to be very feriou, and
public tranquility to be threatened with difurbuace.
The Stadtholder having left the Hague upward of
three months, on account of the ummand of the ga
rifon there being given to a French officer, is determi-
ned not to return until that officer il perfeded. The
States of Holland, an the other hand, are u determi-
ned not to fecede from their former refolution. The
Kinr of Prnla threaten--the people are divided-and
as tie time draws near, when bufiaels of the firn
confequence is to be agitated in their allembliers
(which cannot he done without the Stadtholder) con-
fulion muft inevitably follow.
7famry 7. The fecrily of the weather for fome
day palt, has exceeded the ufual meafure of cold it
this country.-The thermometer has been 1s and 4i
degrees below freezing, and this with every wind from
the Eaftg North-Ratl. ronnd th: North to South-Weft,
and South.
The Emprefs of Ruffl is Lrengtlening herself on
every fide, to that the may have little to fear on her
own frontiers, from her surrounding neighbours,
Should the be obliged, as there is reafoo at present to
think the may, to carry her arms either into Turkey or
Germany.
The Swallow Eaft India pocket from the Eaft-Indies
is arrived in the Downs, on board of which Lord
Macartncy is come hois paffenger, and who arrived
ycfterday about two o'clock at the Eaft.India Houfe.
The Swallow Packe left l Bengal the 16th of Auguft,
