HOUsE of COMMONS. Some Account of Yesterday's Business. THE HON. CHARLES FOX'S MOTION TO GROUND AN IMPEACHMENT OF THE MINISTRY. the degree of information which Ministry had obtained of the French force, that is, the number of ships, men, and guns," in Brest harbour and Brest water when Admiral Keppel was first sent out with a fleet of twenty ships last May. As the consequences- of Admiral Keppel's being so sent out were now over, at least as the production of the papers he wished to have before the House, could not, as far as his judgment went, do harm or injure the interests of Great Britain in any manner whatever, he was induced to hope that no objection would be made to the motion, and that the papers would be, pro- duced without a single negative. Under- standing, however, , that it was meant on the other side the House to oppose the motion, he should be under the necessity of going somewhat more at large into the reasons up- * Mr. Fox did not come into the House till fou o'clock. The House had sat for some time without. doing any business, in expectation of his arrival, and just as he came to, the Order of the Day, which had been repeatedly called for, was a out to be read. in which case his motion must have been postponed for R. Fox, after apologiz- ing to the House for his having. kept them wait- ing , said he had the preceding day given no- tice of his intention for moving as that day for certain papers relative to on which the motion was founded, than he had originally intended. He did not, he declared, with to quote the words of a for- mer, debate, or to mention what had been said in the other House of Parliament on a for- mer occasion j he knew very well that sucH practices were in general deemed irregular, and very properly deemed so ; but he con- ceived that it was fair to quote the official declaration of Ministers in either House, declarations made with a view to be dissemi- nated, which had been disseminated, and which were now become matters of publick notoriety. He therefore reminded the House, that in the beginning of last session of Parliament, in November 1777, the first Lord of the Admiralty had declared in Par liament that " there were at that time thirty- five sail of the line ready for sea, ard that seven more would be ready in a very few days." That the noble Lord accompanied this declaration with another; which was, " that if any first Lord of the Admiralty did not keep up the navy of England, so AS to have a fleet ready at all times to send - out superior to any fleet that the United Powers of France and Spain could send against this country, he ought not to hold his office." This latter declaration, he ob-- served, came spontaneously from the first Lord of the Admiralty, and was therefore the more worthy attention, and the more to be considered, as the test of the noble Lord's opinion of the nature of his own duty. Let gentlemen recalled a little what had fol- lowed this declaration, and how far ' the meaning and spirit of it had been complied with. He had early laft sessions had the ho- nour of informing the House of the Treaty of Versailles, ( or whatever other name it might be called by,) the treaty between France and the United States being signed. His information was, at the time he gave it, f 0uted by the noble Lord in the blue ribband, and his abettors, and depend- ants. In March last, however, a noti- fication of that treaty's having been so signed, was made by the Marquis de Noailles, and then Mr. Keppel, who had been about two years before that applied to by his Majesty to serve, as had been sent by every gentlemen who had read the newspaper account, ( an imperfect one it must be confessed, but a complete" one would soon be 011 the table) of what was said by Admiral Keppel in his defence, pre- vious to his calling of witnesses in support of his innocence, on his late trial, was called on to go and take the command of the fleet at portsmouth. Admiral Keppel went and found only six ships ready for sea ; more were, it was true, by great industry, got ready soon afterwards ; ( and so far the Admiralty Board had acted commendably, and deserved credit;) by May, Admiral Keppel went out with twenty sail. Gentle- men would therefore see how far this agreed with the declaration of the first Lord of the Admiralty, who had in November as- serted that there were then 35 ships ready for sea ; and that there would shortly be seven more ;' whereas in fact and in truth there were only six ready in March, and Admiral Keppel sailed with no more than twenty in May. Mr. Fox said he was aware that it would be said in answer to him, that we had detached various squadrons, and particularly one of 13 sail under Ad- miral Byron. Those he should consider as pleas of little avail, because it was noto- rious that France had sent out nearly as many ships under Comte d'Estaing, besides other detachments, and that therefore unless Ministers chose to forget that there was any such port in France as Toulon, and to assert we were only to consider the port of Brest as. a place from whence the enemy could send out ships, it was idle and frivolous to talk of the ships we had detached from Portsmouth, in proof that our navy was, at the beginning of the present war with France, a war foreseen and fore- told ' over and over again, as a war that was impending, and must be expected, equal to the navy of a single branch of the House of Bourbon. Admiral Keppel sailed in May with twenty ships, and by. his luckily taking the two French frigates, the Pallas and Licorne, had got acquainted with the superior force of France, then lying in Brest Harbour or Brest Water. In corroboration of which information, he had occular proof by his going and looking into Breft Water himself. As soon as Admiral Keppel saw that the French were so superior in point of force, he had returned to England: A circum- stance which had the appearance of running away from the French, inasmuch as the Admiral had thought it necessary to quit that station to which he had been ordered. Mr. FOX said, he did not mentioin this by way of censuring the Admiral's conduct, ve- ry fae from it; he thought if did him the highest honour as a good and a wise officer ; that his country . was infinitely obliged by it, for that possibly we should not have en- joyed the safety we now felt had it not for great measure. he Mentioned it only to shew that so far from the first Lord of the Admiralty's assertion respecting the number of ships ready in November, proving true, it was manifestly ill- founded, and likewise to shew, that so far from his con- duct corresponding with his other assertion, " that a minister of his department ought always to have ready for sea a fleet superior to any that the united branches of the House of Bourbon could send against us" that it was evident at the commencement of the present war with France alone, our fleet was no: only not superior, but barely equal to hers. This, he said, was a fit matter of publick enquiry, and if we meant to be more successful than our arms had proved last year, it was right for us now to enquire into the failures in point of preparation for military defence, which had marked last year, especially those failures which he had just mentioned, and which respected so important a part of our defence as our navy. How the enquiry might turn out, upon whom the blame would fall, and what would be the proper steps to follow the enquiry with, were matters foreign to the present motion, and matters which he would not then go into ; he only contended that an enquiry was necessary, and that his motion, if complied with, would furnish the proper evidence to proceed upon. He disavowed any intention of disclosing secrets which might endanger the state ; he did not foresee any danger of that kind at a probable consequence, and therefore had hoped that the papers would have been granted with the same candour as other pa- pers of a similar tendency had been granted last year, and from the production of which no bad consequence had arisen. If, how- ever, his motion was thought to extend too far, or any gentleman would suggest words of a more proper tendency, he would rea- dily adopt them. His motion was as fol- lows : " That an humble address be presented to his Majesty, that he will be graciously pleased to give directions that there be said before this House, copies or extracts of all letters received by any of his Ma. jesty Ministers, Or the Lords Commissi- oners of the Admiralty, containing any intelligence relative to the equipment, number, and force of the fleet that sailed from Brest, under the command of Mons. d'Orvillier's, in July last." By the word Extracts, he conceived he had so guarded his motion, that it might safely be complied with, as under that word Ministers might keep back whatever was really improper to be communicated to the publick. If Ministers, however, should still think the motion improper, and would de- clare to the House verbally what the nature of their information was, and whether they did or did not know the force of the French in Brest before they sent out Admiral Kep- pel, with twenty ships only, he would be contented. He only wanted grounds for the enquiry to proceed upon, and he was free to say, that it might be conducted even with- out the papers moved for, but not so well, nor so accurately. One great inconveni- ence, which would arise, if neither the papers were granted, nor a verbal declara- tion was made, would be this ; Ministers would have it in their power to answer in that ambiguous, shuffling, evasive manner, in which they had ever answered on similar occasions. They would, as usu- al, make a double defence, and might reply just as they did last year, when he mentioned the French treaty with Ame- rica being signed, and was blaming them for their culpable ignorance in not know- ing it they then asked, " how he knew, or could he prove that they did not know it?" and afterwards, when he pose it; but he was most exceedingly glad to hear that it was the Honourable Gentle- man's opinion that the enquiry could be conducted without the papers which the mo- tion went to require. Had the case been otherwise, it would have been a matter of much doubt with him, whether the laying the papers before the House would not have been productive of more mischief, than the enquiry could possibly have produced bene- fit. The motion, if it were carried, not- withstanding what the Honourable Gen- tleman had said respecting the word Ex- tracts, went to all letters, and every part of letters which contained the least intelligence relative to the Brest fleet; intel- ligence, from its nature, secret and impro- per for publication ; intelligence which would at any time be a matter of great de- triment to the publick interest to produce ; but if it would be detrimental to produce it five years hence, how much more detrimen- tal would it be to produce it now, when it was so recent, and referred to occurrences scarcely a year old ? If it were improper for the papers to be produced, a verbal de- claration what the information was that Ministers had upon the subject, would be equally improper ; for, in his opinion, written evidence of a particular kind, and a verbal recital of that very evi- dence amounted to just one and the same thing. If Ministers were accused, and in the course of the enquiry blame was thrown upon them, the information and pa pers now moved for must necessarily be produ- ced by Ministers in their own defence; but he trusted there would be no necessity for the latter, as he saw not the least reason to fear the former, and as he had never heard that any blame whatever was thrown upon ad- ministration respecting the sending out Ad- miral Keppel, but on the contrary, that the first Lord of the Admiralty had gained great honour by his activity on the occa- sion, and by the excellent equipment of the fleet. The Honourable Gentleman had said, that papers had been moved for last year ; that the motion had been received with candour, and the papers granted. It was very true, but how did that happen ? Another branch of the legislature, the House of Lords, had thought proper to ask for papers, and they had been granted there. When the motion therefore was put in that Houfe, he had said he should not oppose it, and had given his reason for so saying. But he had not thought it wise in granting those papers, and he was not cer- tain that no ill consequences either had not, or would not yet follow, as the Hon. Gen- tleman had declared. With regard to Ad- ministration's not having expressed their approbation of Admiral Keppel's conduct, in returning home with twenty ships, as soon as he discovered the superior force of the Brest fleet, he was certain no blame had been thrown on the Admiral by Administration, and, as to himself, he had always thought the prudence and propriety of the measure was an ample justification of the Admiral's conduct. The Honourable Gentleman had talked of Ministers always making a dou- ble defence, and had forgot that he himself was urging a double charge against Minis- ters. The Hon. Gentleman had declared, that if Ministers did not know of the force of the French fleet in Brest water, they were most culpably ignorant ; if they did know the force of that fleet, they were inde- sensibly culpable in having sent out Admi- ral Keppel with only twenty ships. Surely this was an ambiguous and an unfair mode of reasoning, and not consistent with that re- peated mention of candour, which was heard so often from that side of the House. His Lordship took notice of several other was blaming them for not having done more to put this country into a state of defence, knowing, as they did, of the French treaty, they asked " what proof he had, and why j he took upon him to assert, that they knew of the treaty at all, previous to the notification by Monsieur de Noailles," This sort of unmanly conduct might be played over again ; even to this day, the nation at large would have been kept in the dark, as to the information, or want of infor- mation of Ministers, respecting the treaty between France, had not a noble Lord, Lord Stormont, stood up in defence of his honour, in the other House, and publickly declared, that he had done his duty to his country, by giving Ministers information of the treaty while it was in agitation, and that he had sent them word of it's being signed, the very night it was signed. Before he sat down, Mr. Fox again touched upon the Ministry with holding their approba- tion from Admiral Keppel, upon his ac- quittal ; and with- holding their approba- tion from the Admiral for his return to Plymouth from Brest Water with his fleet of twenty fhips as soon as he discovered the superiority of the French. It was there- fore, he said, an act of justice, due to Ad- miral Keppel, that the publick should be informed whether Ministers really knew, when they sent out Admiral Keppel with twenty ships, the force of the French in Brest Water, and whether they intended to risque the fleet and deliver it over to the French, or whether, as he believed was the case, they did not know the force of the French, and were not in possession of that informa- tion which many persons had, and which any person tolerably industious to acquire in- telligence, might have easily obtained. The motion was read by the Speaker. Lord North rose to reply. His Lordship said the enquiry which the Honourable Gen- tleman talked of was perfectly proper, and absolutely necessary. The publick had a right to it, and he should by NO MEANS op- matters which had fallen from Mr. Fox, and observed that it was impossible for Government to be conducted at all, un- less a proper degree of confidence was placed in Ministers ; he concluded with say- ing, that an enquiry into the business of last summer, was both expedient and necessary, but that when that enquiry was commenced it would appear that Admini- stration were perfectly firm, perfectly safe, as to the consequences of such an enquiry, and that in answer to any insinuation of blame, a defence could be made which would not only acquit them from such insi- nuation to the satisfaction of that House, but to the satisfaction of the whole nation. Mr. T. Townsend very warmly supported the motion, and replied to several parts of Lord North's speech. He expressed his sur- prize at the noble Lord's declaration that no person had thrown any blame on Ministry for their conduct last year, declaring that it was not possible for any, even the most ab- ject of the numerous herd of servile wretches who followed the heels of every treasury board, to have looked in his Lordship's face, and told him without a blush, that the conduct of Ministry was not universally blamed. In support of this assertion, Mr. Townsend instanced the suffering the French to engross our whole trade in the Mediter- ranean, and make prizes of every merchant- man we sent there. That it was unparal- lelled in any war with France, not to have a squadron to guard the Straits ; that at pre- sent we had only Admiral Duff, with a spy- ing glass, to see our ships taken from day to day, but with an insufficient force to pro- tect them. He mentioned, that it was hinted six ships had lately sailed from Tou- lon, to join the others in Brest water, and that from the conduct of Ministry, and their scandalous neglect of the Mediterrane- an, it seemed as if they had got Toulon rub- bed Out of the map, and as if no such por he was extremely severe on the Conduct of Lord Sandwich, and ridicul- ed Lord North for his asserting to en- courage an enquiry, and at the same time denying the House the means to carry it on, as well as Lord North's mode of saying that some defence of Ministers, would be made by somebody, upon some grounds, on some future occasion. Admiral KEPPEL declared he was a total stranger to the intention of his honourable kinsman, who had brought in the present motion ; that he had no hand in framing it, and that he made no complaints against any person ; he did not like speaking about him- self, and he should always avoid it as much as possible. On the present occasion, he thought it due to himself to declare, that he had never betrayed the secrets of Ad- ministration in any the least degree ; Ad- ministration, who trusted him, or rather whose orders he went to obey ( for he could not say he had a single friend among them, and they well knew there had not subsisted any sort of confidence or intercourse between them) should never have it in their power to accuse him of having diVulged their orders, or that any person knew whether he had violated their instruc- tions. When he came home with the twenty ships, his nearest relation did not know why he came home; nor could any one of his friends obtain from him, even had he been so imprudent as to require it, a syllable of what he necessarily knew of the secrets of Ministers. Ministers might treat him with as much indifference as they pleased, they should have no ground to impeach his honour, of which he was himself the guar- dian. The Admiral said it was true, Administration had not shewn any appro- bation of his conduct, either on his first return from Brest water, or on his late acquittal. He had nevertheless receiv- ed the compliments of his professional judges, the thanks of both Houses of Parliament, and the thanks of the public, which amounted, he feared, a greater degree of congratulation and honour than his ser- vices merited. If he had complained at all, it would have been at the very cold letter taking off his late suspension, which he had received from the Board of Admiralty. Had that Board put a few more words of the sentence of the Court Martial into the letter, he should have taken it kind, and it would have been a comfort to him and ' an encouragement. He concluded with declaring, that he considered himself as bound to exert his best abilities in the service of his King and Country, and to hold his life at their disposal, in gratitude for the very great favours he had received from them; favours which he repeated it, he feared were much superior to his merits. Lord Mulgrave in reply said, that the let- Icr iioni ihm AdilltraK^ wllielt the honoura- ble Admiral complained of, was a mere of- ficial order; that there was no idea of shew- ing the honourable Admiral the least cool- ness ; the only idea was to take off the suf- pension the first moment they knew of the sentence. That he was at the Board when it was drawn up ; that it was sent in the common manner, and that the honourable Admiral might be well assured he would ne- ver have given his consent to any letter meant to appear as a cold letter to Admiral Kep- pel, or that should seem to convey either a want of joy on his acquittal, or a want of respect to his person. Sir William Gordon made a very extraor- dinary speech, in which he attacked the Opposition for their want of candour ; made warm eulogiums on Lord Sandwich and Lord North, professed his duty and grati- tude to the King, and declared it was his determined resolution to support his Minis- ters. Sir William in a great part of his speech was ironical, and therefore created a good deal of laughter, but did not say much, if any thing, respecting the motion then before the House. Colonel Barre took up various parts of Sir William Gordon's speech, and returned his irony, by saying that the Honourable Gentleman had studied politics on a large scale, having been Minister to the impor- tant Court of Brussel ! The Colonel also was ironically severe on the Board of Ad- miralty, declaring, that dissimulation and hypocrisy were not among the vices of that Board ; that as they felt no joy on the ac- quittal of Admiral Keppel, they acted with perfect consistency in sending the Admiral as cold a letter as possible upon his acquittal. He produced the letter, and shewed to the House that the words malicious and ill- founded, which were very important words of the sentence of the Court Martial, were left out. Having dwelt for some time on that idea, the Colonel came seriously to consider the conduct of Ministers re- specting his honourable friend's motion, and made great use of Lord North's declaration that the prudence and propriety of Admiral Keppel's conduct justified the measure of returning home with the twenty ships, con- trolling it with the different mode of appro- bation that had been pursued respecting Sir Hugh Paliser, who had, he understood, re- ceived express thanks for the conduct of his particular squadron in the affair of the 27th July. After abundance of strong argument, the Colonel concluded with declaring, that if Ministers who stood accused of capital misconduct, with held the evidence by which alone the accusation could be supported of disproved, they ought not to march through the streets in safety, or be sufFered to live in a free country. Lord Mulgrave replied to the charge, that che Admiralty felt no joy 0n Admiral Kep- pel's acquittal, denying that the assertion, had the least foundation. Colonel Barre answered the Noble Lord, reminding him that his attempt to charge him as a malicious accuser, came with an ill grace from that side of the House, one of whose constant ministerial supporters had so lately been convicted of having preferred n malicious and ill founded accusation. Admiral KEPPEL again rose, and de- clared, that whether the letter he had received, and which took off his suf- pension, was or was not meant as a cold letter, he certainly felt it to be a cold letter. The noble Lord had said nothing had been done but what was common ; he begged leave to say, that the whole of his case was extremely uncommon. When he was upon his trial, a great many questions were suggested to him as proper to be put by him ; some by very low people, and some by very great people ; but he disdained putting any that might be imputed to dirty, mean motives : among others, he had infor- mation that a letter had been sent to Captain Bazeley by Sir Hugh Palliser, ( he begged pardon for using the name, he never would mention it again as long as he lived) declaring that the King had expressly thanked him for the conduct of the Blue squadron on the 27th of July, and de- sired that his thanks might be communicat- ed to the officers of that squadron. The Admiral said he made n0 use of the in- formation on his trial he was above it; The noble Lord had talked of his joy on his acquittal. He begged the noble Lord to consider always, that he seperated his pro- fessional from his official character. In the former, he knew no man more respectable, or who in the command of a ship, would behave more honourably. The Admiral repeated his gratitude to the publick, and said he was aware he stood now in a very ticklish situation, as the leaft ill conduct, or false step, would be attended with much worse consequences, in him, than in any other of- ficer. Sir George Saville made a long speech, in which he took notice of Sir William Gor- don's speech, and said that he had frequent- ly observed when the House had matters of great importance before them, their atten- tion was called off in that manner. Sir George also went into an examination of what had fallen from Lord North, answer- ing several of his Lordship's arguments very forcibly, and particularly holding out the request that more confidence might be pla- ced in ministers, made in the very moment when charges of misconduct of the grossest kind were urging against them, as a most unwarrantable piece of assurance. Mr. Powys made a few remarks on the speech of Lord North, taking up such points as fit matter of reply, as had escaped the notice of the other speakers. At length the strangers were ordered to withdraw, and shortly afterwards the ques- tion- was put, when the House divided, and the numbers were Ayes, — 97 Noes, __ ,34 After this the other motion, " for copies of all letters and papers found on board the Pallas and Licorue frigates, relative to the equipment and force of the Brest fleet." This was carried in the affirma- tive without a division. MORNING CHRONICLE.' LONDON, FEBRUARY 24, 1779. The printer kept his men in waiting as long as he prudently could withold his paper from press, in hopes of obtaining a copy of the London Gazette, which, he understands, contains an account of the very favourable news received by Government yesterday re- specting the recovery of Georgia, and the readiness of the Carolinas to return to their allegiance, as well as an account of the cap- ture of the Island of St. Lucie, and the re- pulse of Count d'Estaing, with considerable loss on his part, on his attempting to retake the Island.— As the Gazette will not be published till late in the morning, he submits the following summary and imperfect ac- counts to his readers, and must intreat their patience for a more authentic account till to- morrow. Yesterday morning at one o'clock, an Officer arrived express at Lord George Ger- main's Office, with dispatches from Colonel Campbell at Georgia. The contents of these dispatches are, that the Colonel had landed in that Province, where he had had two skirmishes with the people, in both which he beat them; that numbers had come in and taken the oaths to his Majesty, and that the whole Province had surrendered. They further say, that he was shortly to march against Carolina, where he had every reason to expect the like success, having had great offers made him from the principal people in that Province ; the inhabitants of Charles- town in parti- cular having sent word that they were ready to receive the King's troops, and wished most ardently for the Royal standard to be erected there. Advice is received by a vessel just arrived at Lancaster, from St. Vincent's, that Ad- miral Barrington had wrote to Governor Morrison, informing him, that having just taken possession of the Isle of St. Lucia ; and the troops having had time to intrench, Count d'Estaing appeared in sight, and landed a large body of forces, which were beat off with considerable loss that the next \ i I day he landed 5000 more troops, which after a severe action, were again beat, with the loss of 500 men killed on the spot, and 900 taken: that d'Estaing reimbarked as fast as possible in great disorder, and to Admiral Barrington's great surprise, steered his course immediately for Mar- tinico, from whence the Admiral con- cludes, that d'Estaing's precipitate flight, proceeded from some intelligence he had received, that Admiral Byron was within 12 hours sail of him, with 11 ships of the line, three 50 gun ships, and six frigates. General Medhurst was wounded in this action, and the Ceres sloop taken by d'Estaing. The Boyne's lower deck guns were landed, and mounted on a battery, and did considerable execution. Other accounts say, our troops landed the 18th of December, and the place capitulated on the 29th, having lost 1600 men, killed and taken, with the loss of only 40 on the side of the English. The Diamond frigate was sent by Admi- ral Byron to acquaint Admiral Barrington of his being on his passage to the West- In- dies, but when she arrived at Antigua, the fleet were at St. Lucia, to which he imme- diately proceeded, and by very great luck got in, though D'Estaing's fleet were cruiz- ing off the harbour : from some scout D'Es- taing learnt the news she brought, and next morning left his station off St. Lucia. When the several fleets of men of war are arrived in the West- Indies, now bound thi- ther, the number of the line will amount ( two with Barrington, two with Parker, twelve with Byron, eight with Rowley, and two with Hotham) to twenty- six sail, besides four fifties, and a great number of frigates and sloops of war. Yesterday morning about three o'clock her Majesty was safely delivered of a Prince, at her own palace; the Lord Bishop of Can- terbury, the Lord Chancellor, and several Privy Counsellors attended, agreeable to the usual formality, and Lady Viscountess Weymouth sat in the Prefence Chamber at St. James's, to receive the compliments of the Nobility. Her Majesty and the young Prince are in as good health as can be ex- pected: cake and caudle were given as usual, and will continue till next Sunday. Yesterday in the afternoon Colonel Camp- bel's aid de camp waited on Lord George Germain, and had a long conference on the subject of the dispatches brought by him from Georgia, and of the general situation of affairs in that province, which his Lord- ship immediately communicated to his Ma- jesty at the Queen's palace. Yesterday the House of Peers broke up at a quarter before five o'clock, and adjourned till this day. Yesterday counsel were called to the bar of the House of Peers, to be farther heard on the appeal of Gorman againft Mc'Cul-' lock ; after the counsel on both sides had been fully heard, Lord Bathurst spoke for a short time, and proposed two short amend- ments. The Lord Chancellor afterwards put the question, that the decree thus amend- ed be affirmed, which was agreed to by the House. A motion was yesterday made in the House of Peers, to congratulate his Majesty on the happy delivery of the Queen, and the birth of a Prince. The Earl of Effingham rose up yesterday in the House of Peers, and moved, " That the proper Officers do lay before this House, an account of the number of Seamen and Marines employed in the ser- vice of the Royal Navy, from December 31, 1770, to the 31st of December 1771, upon a medium of each month, distinguish- ing the Seamen from Marines, and the num. of each borne and mustered in the service. Also, An account of the expence of the Navy for five years, ending in December 1772. Also, An account shewing the payment of the Navy during the same period. And also. An account of the amount of what has been received for old Naval Stores ; and also the expenditure of the same, for the same period." Yesterday the Naval Court Martial Bill Was read a third time in the House of Peers, and passed. The Mariners Bill, the Abbington In- closure Bill, the Coleshill Inclosure Bill, and the Bill for repairing Gloucester Roads were presented yesterday in the House of Peers. The second reading of Mr. Edwards's di- vorce Bill is put off in the House of Peers till to- morrow. The Duke of Richmond, and the Earl of Shelburne are both indisposed. The House of Commons broke up yester- day at seven o'clock, and adjourned till this day. A motion was yesterday made in the House of Commons by Lord Lewisham, for a congratulatory message to his Majesty on the safe delivery of the Queen, and the birth of another Prince, which upon the question put was carried nem con. Yesterday the resolutions came to in the Committee of supply on Monday last, were reported in the House of Commons, read and agreed to. Yesterday the Militia Bill was presented to the House of Commons, and read the first time. The second reading of the Dutchy of Lancaster Bill was put off yesterday in the house of Commons sor fix months, and a motion afterwards made for a new Bill t0 be bronght in. An account of the sinking Fund Was yesterday ordered to be laid before the House of Commons, and also some accounts respec- ting the navy, similar to those moved for in the House of Peers. The Committee on the Naval Court Martial Bill which stood for yesterday in the House of Commons is postponed till to- morrow. We have authority to say, that the enter- tainment which was intended for Admiral Keppel by the West- India Planters and Merchants, and which was fixed for to- morrow, is postponed to a further day, by the particular desire of the Admiral, from an apprehenfion that the excesses which were committed on Saturday last, and which he or his friends could not repress, might be renewed on this occasion. A private letter from Madrid says, the French Ambassador being engaged in poli- tical conversation with the Prince of Asturias the heir apparent to the Crown of Spain, the Prince differing with him in opinion, grew warm, and gave the Ambassador a box on the ear, in full levee. The Ambassador putting his hand to his sword, instantly recol- lected himself and retired. This affair makes a great noise in Madrid, and is as yet unsettled, which causes much specula- tion. Monday advice was received at the Ad- miralty from the Mayor of Lynne, that a number of Colliers had been taken off Flamborough Head, ( some say thirty) by two large French privateers, and sent to France, and that they had ransomed several others. In consequence of this advice, or- ders were immediately sent to the command- ing officer in the Downs, for two frigates and two sloops to sail diredtly, to cruize in search of the privateers. The Hazard privateer, of Whitehaven, has taken a brigantine of 200 tons, bound from France to the West- Indies, with bale boods, & c. The Ellen, Power, from Cork to Ma- laga, is taken in the Gulf by a French privateer. The Pomona, Ashelford, which is arrived in the river from Lisbon, was taken on her passage by a French privateer and afterwards ransomed for 1200 guineas. The John and Elizabeth, Covell, which was taken by a French privateer, is ransom- ed for 100 guineas. The Brighthelmstone packet, which was taken by a French privateer, near Yar- mouth, is ransomed for 120 guineas. A large brig belonging to London, Capt. Boulter, which was taken by a French pri- vateer, near Scilly, is ransomed for 250 guineas. A letter from Plymouth, received on Monday afternoon, mentions the capture of the Dauphin de Francc, a Privateer 0f 24 guns, Levelade, Commander, off the Start, belonging to St. Maloes, by the Tyger of London, the King George of Guernsey, and the Shark of Dover, their arrival there, and sailing to the eastward. The company at the Pantheon on Mon- day evening were very brilliant, and con- sisted of at least elven hundred persons : among whom were, His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester, the Dukes of Devon- shire, Manchester, and Queensbury; Lords Egremont, Macclesfield, Powis, Cholmond- ley, Dunmose, Lyttleton, Carlisle, Nor- thington, Carmarthen, Foley, Donnegal, Beauchamp, Courtney, Bulkley, Mountmor- ris, Petersham, Hinton, Cranbourn, Kelly, Maldon, Sefton, Ferrers, Tamworth, & c.

The company were all out between one and two o'clock, and would have been much, sooner, but for the obstinacy'of some of the coachmen. Extract of a letter from Newcastle, Feb. 20. '* Laft Thursday at a meeting of the master and brethren of the Trinity- house, it was resolved to present the Hon. Admiral Kep- pel with the freedom of that House, in a gold box, for his late meritorious services. They also generously voted 5ol. to be dis- tributed amongst the distressed families of this port who suffered in the storm of the 31 ft of Dec, last." Extract of a letter from Gosport, Feb. 20 " Last night a Serjeant of the Westmin- ster regiment, who was on guard at Forton prison, heard some of the prisoners at work he immediately gave information to the of- ficers, who, upon a diligent search, found a subterraneous passage, near a dozen yards in length, quite under the soldiers guard- room ; in another night most likely every prisoner would have been out, as they had not a quarter of a yard to work through." Monday afternoon Edward Newham, Esq. of Bridge- street, was killed by a fall from his horse, near the Shepherd and Shepherdess in the City- road, Moorfields. On Saturday evening the following strange and melancholy transaction happened at Black friars Bridge : Robert Ravenscroft, apprentice to Mrs. Harrison, Printer, in Red- lion- court, Fleet- street, sitting upon the Ballustrade of the bridge, said to a stranger who was standing near him, " I live at No 2, in Red- lion- court," which the per- son not seeming to observe, he repeated with some uneasiness, and immediately threw himself into the river. No reason can be assigned for this rash and strange action, as he had discovered no signs of discontent or uneasiness, and was walking quite uncon- cerned with his young master in Fleet- street just before he committed it. His body was taken up on Sunday morniug near the bridge, and carried to an Undertaker's in Fleet street in order to be interred. Yesterday morning was married, at St. Michael Royal, College- hill, Mr. Darling- ton, of Clifford's- inn, to Miss Stracy, only daughter of Mr. Stracy, of Elbow- lane, Wine- Merchant. On Monday in the afternoon died of a fe- ver. at her father's house in Cheapside, Miss Simpson, aged 20, daughter of Mr. James Simpson, of said place, possessed of every virtue and accomplishment that could adorn her sex. Yesterday morning died at her lodgings in St. James's- street, Mrs. Hawkins, a widow gentlewoman of a plentiful fortune. ERRATUM.— In the paragraph concern- ing the situation of the island of St. Lucia, in the 4th col. of the 2d page of yesterday's paper, where it is said that island is seven leagues from Martinico, and the like from Antigua, instead of Antigua, read St. Vin- cents. Now the gentle gales, Fanning their odoriferous wings, dispense Native perfumes, and whisper whence they stole those balmy spoils. RICHARD WARREN. PERFUMER.
