MF.NTZ, December 26.
A German Journal, which has an extensive
circulation, makes the following reflections on
Ru sia: The situation 1 f this empire, it says,
is at the present moment very alarming. An
innumerable French army is now marching
across Poland, which already assembles ai! its
strength, in order to lake advantage ol so fine ;
an opportunity, which perhaps will not (tiler
itself a second time, to recover and lound its;
independence. The urks are ri ing 111 tiie |
south, in order to make an effort to avenge I
their long state of abasement and to prepare |
a barrier for the future. Persia, in short, who j
is already sending ambassadors to .Napoleon,;
will not let slip so favorable an opportunity ol’
repelling from her frontiers so dangerous “a j
neighbour, Vlio every day penetrates still fur
ther towards the centre ol her empire, i hese
facts arc undeniable, and what would it be
were the king of Sweden, embracing a policy
more suitable to his present interests, to w ish
also to profit of present circumstances, to de
mand and retake front Russia the provinces
which bis predecessors lost, ik. which the r>\ve
dish nation still regrets. Attacked on so many
points, disturbed on the Baltic and Black seas,
whose mouths will be shut up from her, what
resistance will this great yet feeble (flasque)
and disproportionate body present to a French
army, already capable of annihilating it without
all this assistance.
They write from Vienna, that a Russian
general, (who is not named) has arrived inth.it
capital with an important mission ; he lodges
with the Russian ambassador, who has present
ed him to the court.
Letters from Prussia state, that a changd is
about taking place in the Russian ministry.
If this new sis confirmed, it may be regarded
as a favorable augur for peace, but the report
of advances made Ity the court of Pctersburgh
to the emperor of France, is so often renewed
without being confirmed, that all news ol tlfis
kind must be viewed as doubtful.
PARIS, January 1.
Letters from Menu mention that a courier]
from Berlin had given intelligence in that town,
that H M. tlie Emperor of tlie French had ]
made his solemn entry into Warsaw, where
he iv..s received with the greatest enthusiasm.
The head-quarters of the grand army being
tints established in the capital of Poland, there !
is reason to believe that military events will
shortly resume a great activity.
The bankers of the American government
at have made known to the pub
lic, tlvat on the Ist of January instant, they will

touche ! in England, have not been permitted I
to enter that port.
In execution of the imperial decree, which
repels from French ports evi ry ship coming
directly irom England or its colonies, and to
prevent ships from making use of the pretext:
of having been forced into England or her pos
sessions, from stress of weather, tlie captains
of foreign ships on their arrival in anv French
port, must declare the place whence they were
dispatched, the one whence they came, and the
ports into which they may have put ; to give a
summary information of their cargo, and to
affirm that they come neither direclv f-ont
England nor from her colonies. If the decla
m.'.Y'i announces that the ship put into England,
she shall be forced to put back; in the contrary
cas--, the declaration shall be sent by the com
mandcr of the port, to the superior administra

Extract rtf alet: rr from Saxony,of the \ 7th Dec. 1
“ The manufacturers of cotton cloths find a
; great scarcity of cotton-yarn or tv. ist; they pro
cured it therefore front England. They now
turn their views to France, where the spinning
of cotton has been brought to great perfection.
. A number have applied to the French iilatiucs,
J and they flatter themselves that they will ob
tain yarn as good as that coming from England.
The scarcity of yarn will then cease, and cur
! manufacotrics wiil renew their activity. We
arc endeavoting, also, to introduce spinning
machines into this country ; but they are yet
too few in number lo supply the want of the fa
brics ; besides, the difficulty of procuring the
raw materials, will always be an obstacle to the
increase ol this branch ( f industry.”
Extract of a private letti r from Saxony, of the
1 7 th December.
Our manufactories have not yet got out of
the stagnation they were struck with before the
war, and which the breaking out of hostilities
was not calculated to put an end to ; but v. e at
least have a prospect of its end, which the in
fluence of English commerce, previous to the
events that have just taken place, had deprived
us of. The occupation of Bucnos-Ayrcs by
the English is particularly hurtful to the rna- \
nufacturcrs of Lusace, who exported great i
quantities of linen to that colony and to the !
whole of South America, where it is in much ‘
greater demand than in Europe. However,
even though this conquest had not taken place, 1
it would have been very difficult to find at Ham
burgh any captains of ships who, in tlie pre
sent circumstances, would have undertaken to
convey our linens to South America.
The cotton manufactories experience a scar
city of yarn, which can only be momentary ;
they formerly drew it from England ; but they
have now recourse to France, where cotton’
spinning has within these few vears been great
ly improved. Several manufacturers have al
ready sent orders to the French spinners, from
whi m they expect to receive as good and fine:
yarn as they formerly had front England. The
receipt of this yarn will give fresh activity to
cur cotton manufactories.
The ribbon manufactories in the circle efi
Erizbrig are at this moment in want of dyed
silk, which they drew from Berlin, where it
was manufactured ; but the manufactories 01
that capital having resumed their usual labors,
v.e hope that in a few weeks this momentary
scat city will be removed.
The interruption of ail communication with
the north of Furopc, particularly with Russia
and Poland, where Saxon goods have hitherto
had the greatest sale, is not without disadvan
tage for the Saxon traders ; for the manufac
turers have given credit to a large amount to
their commissioners in those countries, and it
i-> now impossible for them to draw their mo
ney from thence by biiis of exchange. The
greatest vent they now have is the Austrian
states and the Levant.
LONDON, December 31.
The report of a war between Russia and
Turkey, rests on very doubtful grounds. It is
dated , m Berlin, the very mint of fabrications.
Thi i rumour, perhaps, was circulated with a
view to induce the French to suppose, that Bo
naparte still retained his influence in the Di
van ; that such a war would divide the strength
of Alexander. In the mean time, Sebastian!
would exert all his arts to dissolve the treaty
concluded between the courts of Petersburgh
and Constantinople. The French, it is well
known, have played off such temporary tricks,
when any object was to be carried. 1f it should,
however, turn out to be true, that the Turks
have driven Russia to appeal to the sword, the
theatre of war, in all probability, will be trans
ferred from Poland to Turkey. In such a case
the navy of this country would be of essentia!
service to our ally. Egypt would once more
fall into our hands, and a trade with Persia
thrown open to our merchants. If the articles
of the treaty, inserted in the Statesman of yes
terday, be authentic, all the Christians of the
Greek church will range on the side of Russia ;
for m one of these articles, it is expressly stip
ulated, that they shall he permitted to enter
into the Russian service, a privilege they
have long w ished for, as a dawn of cheering
prospects, li’ the war has lately broken out,
and if the Russians have stretched so far, as
stated, into Turkey, it is a proof of the wisdom
and activity of the cabinet of Petersburgh, that
it could not be lulled into safe security; and
that the most prompt measures were taken to
put the army in motion on the first signal of

FORTY FOURTH BULLETIN OF THE CX-.AXR
ffersare, 2 lit December, 1306.
The emperor has \ isi'.e ! the works of Pra
ga, ei iit handsome redoubts, paii-saded, toi in
an intrenched camp. The Vistula is one of
the largest kind ol livers. The Bug, vvfticn is
comparatively much smaller, L larger than the
Seine. The bridge on this latter river is cm
tirely finished. General Gauthier with the’
25th and 85th regiments of infantry, occupy
the tete du ftont, (head eftbe bridge) w hic.li ge
neral Cheelop.e, has caused lo be loiti.ie,. in
such a manner that this head which has an ex
tent of only 400 toises, finds itself supported by
marshes and the river, encircled by an inn ei.cit
ed crimp on the right bank, which could licit!
the whole of the army covered from every at
tack. of an enemy. A brigade of the light ca
valry of reserve lias constantly small skirmish
es with the Rushan cavalry.
On the 18th, * m. .ii Sml Davoust, feeling the
necessity of strengthening Iris camp on d.e
1 right bank, tool; possession of a little island si-
I tuate at the mouth of the Lika. The enemy
] saw the importance of this post ; a ii.eiy at
j tack vvi.li musquetry took place between the
j advanced guards, but the v ictory and trie island
| remained with the French. Our loss whs a
J few men wounded; the engineer Clouet, a
young man of great hopes, Ims icoeivcd a bail
in his breast.
On the I‘Jth, a regiment of Cossacks, sup
i ported by the Russian Hussars, attempted to
carry off the main guard of tire Jit ht cavalry
placed in front of the tete du font of the Bug,
but it v.as place’ a manner lo be sheltered
front all„surpme. The first hussars gave the
alarm ; the colonel precipitated himscif at the
head of his squadron, and the 13th adv anced to
sustain him. The enemy was overthrown. In
this little affair vve had 3 or 4 men wounded,
but the colonel of the Cossacks was hided, 30
men and 25 horses remained m our power.
There is nothing mote miserable and base
than-those Cossacks ; they are tlie disgrace cf
human nature, they pars the Bug every day and
v iolate the neutrality of Austria, to pillage hous
es in Galiicia, or to make their owners give
them a glass of branciv, of which they me
very fond; but our cavalry have familiarised
themselves with their manner of fighting,
since the last campaign. These wretches
might, by their number, and the noise they
make in charging, stop troops not accustomed
to sec them ; but when they are known, 2Cu-0
of these men are not able to charge a squadron
whic h waits for them on a firm footing.
