By a letter from Madrid, we have received intelligence, that the three ships destined for making discoveries, under the command of Don Alexander Malaspina, set sail from Cadiz the 30th of last month. The artists and men of letters engaged, are of the first reputation. For discoveries relative to natural history, Don Anthony Pineda; for Botany, Don Louis Nee; for the drawing of plants, Don Philip Bauza; for landscape and perspective, Joseph Pozo, of the Academy of Seville; for the collecting and drying of the plants, Joseph Guio.
