"My Lotd,

"I am directed by my lord lieutenant to acquaint your lordship, that his excellency has received intelligence from lieutenant-general Dalrymple, ftating, that a fleet had been feen fteering for Bantry Bay, which it was fuppofed was French; alfo, that the Kangaroo floop of war had paffed through the faid fleet the 21ft inftant, and having reported to vice-admiral Kingfmill that it appeared to belong to the enemy, had failed for England, to give information to the admiralty.

"Under thefe circumftances, his excellency has thought it expedient to take all precautionary measures, in cafe the enemy fhould attempt a landing, and his excellency has the fullett reliance on the zeal and loyalty of the citizens and inhabitants of Dublin, which have already been fo confpicuous, to fecond and facilitate the measures which, in cale of emergency, it will be neceffary for the government to adopt.

I have the honour to be, &c. &c.

mayor,

Dublin-Cafle, 29th Dec. 1796. My Lord,

"The laft accounts from general Dalrymple are by his aid-de-camp, captain Gordon, who left Bantry at ten o'clock on Tuesday, A. M. and arrived here this morning. Seventeen fail of French fhips were at that time at anchor on the lower part of Bear island, but at such a diftance that their force could not be afcertained. A lieutenant of a

French frigate was driven on shore in his boat, in attempting to quit his veffel, which was difmafted, to the admiral. He confirms the account of the fleet being French, with hoftile views to this country, but does not appear to know whe ther the whole fleet, which confifted of about feventeen fail of the line, fifteen frigates, and, including tranfports and luggers, amounted to fifty fail, were all to re-affemble off Bantry. General Hoche was on board, commanding a confider

able force.

To obviate this inconvenience, the mayor has published to the following effect:

"The mayor defires that the countrymen will bring in as usual, to the markets of Cork, all kinds of corn, potatoes, milk, and butter, and every other fupply of provifions. He declares and affures to them, their horfes, cars, &c. &c. will not be taken, or be molested in the leaft.

"The horfes that have been given, and taken for the ufe of the army, are well fed with hay and oats, and proper attention paid to them, and the owners will be entitled to five fhillings per day for each horfe, and each man one fhilling, while out on duty.

"The mayor requests and calls on all gentlemen of the city, who have not already fent their horfes on duty, to fend him in their numbers, that, in cafe more be wanted, he may know where to call for them.

12,113 fhips. From the Sound lift for the years 1792, 3, 4, 5, and 6, it appears that the commerce of Europe to the northern ftates has fluctuated every year for these five years paft; but at last feems to have fo far recovered itself, that, in 1795, it has arrived to the fame pitch as in 1772, there being only one ship more in the latter period than the former. It alfo appears that the commerce of Europe to thofe ftates was lefs by 300 thips in 1795 than in any former year fince 1792, 97 which must be attributed to the 494 hard winter and long froft, which 289 must be feverely felt in the nor1960 thern feas. The British commerce has ftill kept up its profperity, and all the five years is at the head of the lift; while thofe of the Dutch, which used to be next, has dwindled from 2181 to none in 1795, and only one in 1796; and the French, from 128 in 1790, to 25 in 1792, and not one fhip any year after.

Total 2840 There has been no promotion of admirals fince June 1795; 52 poft-captains have been made in the courfe of the last year, 92 mafters and commanders, and 225 lieu
