A Dublin paper of May 1 has he fullowini
article:-" A gentleman who had been lonj a
Baldivia, in South America, lately arrived in thi
city (Mr. M'Mahon, a naturallied Spaniard
afferta, that when he left Cadiz on the ?th o
April laft acceo tet werercei eLlthere, from th
aoaft of Chili, that the native inhabitants were ii
commotion at Coiceptiol, Cotqimbo, Villarica
St. Jago, and Imperiall that they continued thl
exeucfles-f zy7r, and murdered without diftinc
tion, Spaniart Negro, and Indian. They ad
further, that the Governor of t ma wan defeated
and lain, in the valley of Aravcl, while a largi
body of Chilefe besieged Baldivin. This is attni
buted to emilfaries from North America."
His Maefty, previous to the departure of I.rr
Cornwallis, coferned on him the honour o
knighthood, as a preliminary to his having tranif
mitted to him, and beingt invefetd in India, witl
the blue ribbon.
The manner in which the King made know
his Intention of giving the vacant blue iibboln to
Lord Cornwallis, reflects the hlighcit lultre on hi:
charader.-It was after his Lordlhip had taken hi!
final lave, and was preparing to withdraw.-
*' I now do it," faid his Majety, to obviate
every unworthy idea that might be entertained,
that your Lordfrip bad made terms with your
Sovereign."
The above is faO ; but fAr the return of the
Swallow packet the above circumfiance had not
tr nfpherd, as Lord Cornwallis kept it a fetret
here from his mult Intimate friends.

Ma, r6. There is a rcfemblance, ant' that not
very iftant, between the table talk of Dr. John-
fon and that of Voltaire, if we may credit tho
biographers of each.-Inconliltency,-maalignant
fatire-poignancy of wit,-and want of urbanity
diftinguilhbotlh.-n moral character there can be
no comparison. Johnfop was a Chriftian, and
revered rellgion.-Voltaire an Atlicit, and hated
every thing that regarded religion.

it becorls my duty to lay further particulars of
that infllignee before his Majery's servants and

concerning th general Aflembly, antl rquerning

Proteltant air, nations. This I communicated as
a pice of news to Mr. Grant of thi foutkern In-

tiuning tome that Mr. Adams, tlle American A i.

introduced Mr. Tufts to me, (U ho lodges at Mr

I requefed thrurto walKntn I cofee-hours
that I might bear Mr. Tufts himfelf on the fub-
iea, who notonly repeated what I had the honour
to communicate to the larquis of Carmarithn,
but permitted Mr. Grant, at my request, to write

it is f(ee and open to the aid King to rnfume
