ment of Mr. T. Aspirtv/ail, as
consul General ior the United
States in London.
The Flanders mail contains the
following important intelligence,
under the date oj Rome, Nov 2i-*
( It is asserted that the Ministers
lof the great pknvers have deliver
ed to his Eminence the Cardinal
Secretary of State, the treaty of
j alliance relative to the war against
j the Barbary powers, and that it
has been ratified, by all the Sov
ereigns, in their quality of Grand
Masters of the several religious
and military orders in their do
mhiions. By this act the powers
engage nolonly to put an end to
the white slave trade, which the
African governments carry on
with equal insolence and impuni
ty ; but in order to prevent the
return of acts of violence which
disgrace humanity, the powers
also declare, that they will estab
lish there the form of govern
| nent which shah afford the best
| guarantee. The contingent of
1 the troops for this new species of
■ war will be the same, and no one
will be permitted, under any pre
tence whatever, to keep a greater
number of troops than is fixed by
the treaty. All the troops shall
Have the same uniform. His Ho
liness the Pope shall be at liberty
to send a Legate, but who shall
not interfere in temporal matters.
This treaty, which consistsof 133
articles, fixes, that all the Chris
r'*ans shall be set at liberty, and
cannot make a part of the army
destined to occupy the country.
The Sublime Porte, it is said, re
mains neuter in this war, and will
receive guarantees for his Euro
