Captain Foster left Constadt the 13th,
and Copenhagen the 30th September.
Previous to his departure from the for
mer place, he learnt, that no part of the
treaty which had been signed at Paris,
by M. O’Ouibt il, was agreeable to the
views of the Emperor Alexander, or in
conformity to his instructions; and that
such was the indignation of the Russi
an court against this minister, for hav
ing violated the faith which he owed to
his sovereign, that an order of banish
ment had immediately followed his re
turn to St. Petersburgh, and M. D’Ou
bril was no longer to be found among
the living, unless on his way to the de
serts of Siberia ; that the greatest ac
tivity prevailed in levying and embody
ing troops ; that immense camps iiad
been formed; that large bodies were
marching towards the frontiers; and
that nothing else was talked of hut war
against France, a measure which ap
peared to be very popular among all
classes; that the Prince Constantine,
brother to the Emperor, was spoken of
as being highly in favor of the war, and
had offered the utmost assistance which
he could lend to the cause.
Captain Foster further advises, that
the day before lie left Copenhagen, ac
counts were received at that place, per
mail, that every hope of peace had fi
nally vanished; and that hostilities had
actually commenced between Prussia
and France; that Lord Lauderdale had
demanded his passports, and was on
the point of quilting Paris, three sever
al times, during the negociation, with
out having effected the object of his em
bassy ; but that from circumstances
j which were not known to the public,
| though not affecting the serious busi
ness of the negociation, he still remain
ed at Paris, at the date of the last ac
counts from that city. On the subject
generally of a renewed Continental
War, captain Foster was desired to re
port, by his merchant at Copenhagen,
that the safest calculations might be
made on the certainty of its commence

to remain upon his ground, the diffi

I could not possibly have made an im

advantage amqpßsing the river with
his entire force, he came down to meet
us upon the open plain—a measure to
which he was no doubt encouraged by
his cavalry, an arm with which unfor
tunately, I was altogether unprovided.”
