It was reported and generally credited, in the French houses last night, that Prince Lambase had been pursued by the populace, and burnt in the carriage. It was said that the Queen and the Dauphin had retired to the convent of Val de Grave. Among the fluctuating reports of last night, on was, that the Count de ARTOIS has quitted Brussels, and had solemnly erected the Royal Standard, in French Flanders; that he was attended by the Prince de CONDE, the Duck de BOURBON, and many other eminent personages; and that the Marshal de BROGLIO has joined him with a small body of forces which he had collected, and was looked up to as second in command, and the man who was to model their forces, which were hourly encreasing. The Court was further said to have published a manifesto, in which de declares his intention to be solely directed to the public peace, and the rescuing his Majesty's person from the hands of "those Rebels who now detain him." This report we considered as too important to pass over at the same time we can not vouch for its authenticity.—At a late hour last night no official account was received.
