February 16. The second detachment for Altra-
can, &c. on the N W. extremes of the empire,
designed on difcov es, arrived, as we learn, at
Mofeow, the ad of the prefect month, after expe-
riencing a variety of dilficulties on account of the
feverity of the weather, there having been an beavy
fall of fnow finceetheir departure. Our letters
(tate, that both detachments (which confift of
upwaida of llo perfonI, with a variety ok cattle,
caravans, &c.) had both gone into winter quar-
ters at Mol'cow, Jrom whence they were not
likely to move ti!lowrardi the middle of April,
as the winter was exceedingly rigarcum, and likely
tcontinue as tongat left as the laft. The Rftfian
government have the fuccefs of this enterprise fio
much it 'heart, that among other conveniences
there are travelling kitchens, with every article
of neceflries for cooking provilions in fuch regions
as they may pafs through. The PrincetBiflop bf

that one Pierlot, a prieft nd church warden, who
rome time ago had committed four murders In the

confelred the whole, declaring, that finding hiim
