The Whitehall PriCe THREE- PENCE. From TUESDAY, October 19, to THURSDAY, October 21, 1784. [ No. 584-^. WEDNESDAY, Oct. 20. COUNTRY NEWS Northampton, October 18. AT Leicester fair, which began on Tuesday, some of the best cheese sold for 34s. per cwt. but the general prices were from 31s. to 33s. Hor- ses, and cattle in gene- ral, did not sell so high as was expected. Sheep in particular sunk about al. a score from the price they were expected to fetch. Norwich, October 15. On Saturday last m the afternoon a terrible fire broke out at Mr. Bunn's, farmer, at Stanfield- hall about two miles from Wymondham, which was occasioned by a wo- man throwing out some turf- ashes on fire, that communicated to some straw in the yard, and from thence to the barn, stables, out houses, and several tenements adjoning, which were burnt to the ground, together with all the corn in the barn, containing about thirteen lasts of wheat, and eight lasts of barley. Lewes, October 18. Last week a pacquet was seized in Brighthelmstone road, by some Re- venue officers of the above place, by whom a considerable quantity of contraband goods was found on board her. LONDON. Extract of a Letter from Naples, Stpt. r i. The Royal squadron on its return from the expedition againstt Algiers put into this put on the ad inst. It came last from Carthagena, from whence it sailed on the 13th of August. The shipS and crews are in good condition. All the Officers have been presented to the King, and were most graciously received. His Majesty, sa- tisfied with the conduct of his men, of which the Spanish Commander gave the best testimonies, and in compliance with the powerful recommen- dation of his Catholick Majesty, has been pleased to grant relief to the families of the small num- ber of his subjects who lost their lives on that occasion : He hath granted pensions to the wi- dows of Anto to Chitarino, Diego Brugnona, and Giovanni Agnone; the first a seaman of the second class, the next a soldier of the Royal corps of volunteers of the Marine, and the last • a seaman of the third class, who are to have the same pay which their husbands received. " His Majesty proposes also to reward the six individuals wounded in the different attacks, in- dependently of the gratification which they have already obtained, and to extend his favour like- wise to the families of those who were killed or wounded in the gun boat, No. 27, when he shall have received more circumstantial particulars of that unfortunate event." The allocation for suppressing the clandestine exportation of wool, it is hoped, will give some check to that pernicious practice. A large quan- tity of wool was seized about a fortnight ago in the island of Purbeck, on tlie Dorsetshire coast ; where it has been discovered that nearly all the farmers in that county are connected with the smugglers, and, regardless of their country's welfare, have not only sold their own wool, but have purchased great quantities in other parts to supply the contraband traders. They receive in return tea and spirits, to the great detriment of the revenue, and the emolument of foreigners. A Court was held yesterday at Guildhall, at which were present the Lord Mayor, 14 Alder- men, and the two Sheriffs. John Hart, Esq. having surrendered the of- fice of Alderman, his office as Governor of the Ticket Porters became vacant, and the Court appointed Tuesday next to fill the vacancy. On Sunday afternoon as Lucas, a Constable, and an officer belonging to the Police, was com- ing thro Chick- lane, observing a woman with a bundle, he accosted her with, " Well, mistress, what have you got there?" To which she re- plied, with seeming confusion, " What is that to you ?" This brought 0n some strong reasons that increased his suspicions; he insisted on searching her, and for that purpose conveyed her into a public- house. On opening the bun- dle, it was found to contain three thousand and upwards forged stamps for receipts ; and on mote strict examination were also found a wedge of silver, weighing about six ounces, and two smaller pieces which had evidently been in a crucible.— From many circumstances, there is great reason to believe she is an accomplice with the man frequently advertised in the Public Pa- pers for having put off forged Bank notes in dif- ferent disguises, and ia known in Bow- street under the appellation of Old Patch. She is about forty years of age, and has the appearance : fs. tion, through the vigilance of Mr. of the officer of police at Bow- en received of a suspicious house in Bunhill row, he yesterday with Morant, Townsend, s, searched the same with- in the wash house he dis- fit under ground, a b> g upwards, part of the ship freight. , together CE. ia board, • ie East, ( we say ideas, since they have, like the Ameri- can CongrefS the power to recommend and mar) were transmitted to Leadenhall street on the 14th inftant, sealed up ; aud yesterday was the day appointed for opening and taking them into consideration. A Court of Directors was ac- cordingly held, which sat late; and we can as- sure our readers from authority, that this new Board, so far from having put an end to the dis- traCtions and animosities which have so long af- feCted the Government of India, tends to in- flame the discords, and they now burn to a de- gree more than ufualiy violent. Even the new appointments have given occasion to protests and appeals, and the new Governors will go on w th the knowledge that they leave a party be- hind them anxious upon every occasion t0 thwart their measures. When the Collectors of the window- tax shall' begin to call upon the people for the additional duty, then will the praises of Mr. Pitt resound through every corner of the kingdom. Young and old, rich and poor, will join to applaud him, for who will not feel the weighty obliga- gations he has laid upon them ? Who will not revere the sagacious young man, that by doubly taxing an article which none can do without, and which some can afford to pay for, has, with the assistance of the word commutation, thrown an immense sum into the hands of the Com- pany, and made every Nabob his fast friend ? Black teas of the better kind must continue to be as dear at ever, and smuggled in a degree equal to the contraband trade of last year, for the Company have not a sufficient quantity by them to keep down the market. This was over- looked by the present Minister and his friends at the time of passing the bill, though the increase of this branch has been notoriously great for the last three or four years. The Cabinet Ministers we understand haVe de- termined that thirteen new Provinces shall be im- mediately planted, extending from Cape Sable to Hudson's Bay, with a fond hope that they will rival the United American States; the no- ble work has commenced, Nova Scotia is already dissected, the barren Island of Cape Breton is one more, containing less than two hundred in- habitants, and in Louisburgh and the other insig- nificant inlets there are not 30 houses. Our cor- respondent, who has seen the establishment for this useless desert, asserts, that what with bar- racks, Custom- houses, & c. See. the cxpence of Cape Breton on the outset cannot be less than 40, oool, ihe interest of which sum, joined to the salaries of the Governor and other inferior ap- pointments, would keep up three of those reg - ments to be reduced from the old establishment; and if the new Province of Brunswick was anni- hilated and rejoined to Nova Scotia, the whole of the old regiments might be kept up, and those veterans who have freely bled for us, feel the effeCts of national honour and justice.

Whereas the Worshipful Company of Stationers have piratically imitated many of the above county Almanacks, whereby THOMAS CARNAN is injur- ed, and the Public imposed on ; it is thought pro- per to inform the purchasers, that, all Almanacks printed for THOMAS CARNAN are known by the following words : " Printed for THOMAS CARNAN, in St. Paul's " Church- yard, who, after an expensive suit in " law and equity, by the unanimous opinion of " the Judges of the Court of Common pleas, " dispossessed the Stitioners Company of their " pretended exclusive privilege of printing Al- " manacks, which they had usurped for two cen- " turies ; a convincing proof that no unjust mo- " nopoly will ever stand the test of an English Court of Justice," The purchasers of Almanacks are desired to observe, that the Worshipful Company of Sta- tioners gave Lord North their utmost assistance for the additional duty of two- pence which was laid on all sheet Almanacks, and THOMAS CARNAN presented a Memorial to both Houses of PArliament against the additional duty, tax was very ably and constitutionally opposed in the House of, Commons by George Byng, Esq. Sir Charles Tur- ner, See. and in the House of Lords by the Right Hon. Edward Lord Thurlow, Lord High Chancel- lor of Great Britain. , | Complaints having been made from various parts of a difficulty of purchasing CARNAN'S Almanacks, owing to those Booksellers who are under the in- fluence of the Stationers Company, it is thought necessary to inform all persons that are willing to vend CARNAN'S Almanacks, that they shall be supplied with them at the same price they are sold to the trade in London, for ready money and as a further encouragement, those that remain unsold shall be taken again at a stated time the money returned.

Manchester, Sept'. 21, 1784. AT a MEETING of the COMMITTEE for the protection of thc CALLiCO MANUFACTURE and PRINT TRADE this day held at the Bull's Head Inn, in Manchester, RESOLVED, That it is evident to this Committee that very large quantities of Callicoes and Linens, paint- ed, dyed, printed or stained in the East Indies, and other foreign pans, have been for some time past smugglcd into this kingdom, and exposed to sale in London and other markets, to the great injury of the Print Trade of this country and the diminution of his Majesty's revenue : The wearing or otherwise using such foreign Prints in this kingdom, is expressly prohibited by sundry Acts ot Parliament now in force, and by he same Acts all shopkeepers and others selling or disposing of any such Prists, are liable to a penalty of 200I. one third thereof to the King, and the other two thirds to the prosecutor ; and all such goods found in any house, shop, ware- house, or other place whatsoever ( except as in the ACt mentioned), are forfeited and liable to be seized. And whereas it is notorious that the duties on printed Linens, Callicoes, tic. have been, and continue to be, very much evaded, and as the heavy additional duty now about to take place on bleached Callicoes and Cottons intended for printing, will very much cramp that trade, and occasion an increase of such illicit praCtices, the Manufacturers are sensible that if some spirited measures are not taken to enforce the laws the revenue And fair trader will be greatly injured. Therefore the Committee do give Notice, That all persons who shall be detected in wearing any such foreign Prints after the 1st day of Ja- nuary next, will be prosecuted at the expence of this Committee by indiCtment, with the ut- most severity i And that aCtions for recovery of the before- mentioned penalty of iool.- will be brought against all shopkeepers and other per- sons who shall, after the ill day of January, sell or dispose of any such foreign Prints. And also that profectutions will be carried on against all persons who shall be hereafter found evading the duties on printed, bleached or dyed Callicoes, Cottons; or Linens. And, in order to encourage informations, a Reward of Twenty Guineas will be given to such perfon or persons as shall give information to Nathaniel Milne, Attorney in Manchester, against aiij person or persons offending in any of the cases above- mentioned, such reward to be paid immediately after conviction of any such offender. By Order of the Committee, NATHANIEL MILNE, Secretary. DURHAM.

We hear that the report which appeared in several of the papers, stating that the- African Company had at last succeeded in their applica- tions to the . Board of Ordnance, for a fort to be erected for their goods sent from Europe, is en- tirely without foundation, nor is their request likely to be decided upon for some time to come, on account of a difference now subsisting between the French and English Ministers, respeCting how the boundaries were meant to be settled by the late treaty of peace. By an article in that treaty, the King of Great Britain gives up Se- negal, and its dependencies, and also Goree to the French King; and the French King by an- other guarantees James Fort and the river Gam- bia" to the King of Great Britain ; another arti- cle expressly says, Commissioners shall be ap- pointed to settle the boundaries ; after which it is agreed to by the 19th article, that all places not particularly described are to be given up re- ciprocally to those to whom they belonged pre- vious to the war; under this article the French claim Albruda, a factory on the northern banks of the Gambia, situate beiween James Fort and the Bunian Island ; the English contend that it ought to be evacuated. There is now a negoti- ation on foot on the subject.; and in the mean time the River is wholly abandoned by the En- glish, and the trade engrossed by other nations. The following is banded about as part of the plan now under contemplation of Government, for converting the waste Crown lands to purposes of national utility.—— The lands are to be di- vided into lots or parcels, a number of which are to be sold or leased but every year, by Com- missioners to be appointed for that purpose; but the annual alienation ii not to exceed a limited measurement of ground, left the too sudden crea- tion of new farmers should decrease the value of the lands already in a state of cultivation; the purchasers and renters are to be exempted from the land- tax for a certain number of years after the ground is broken up; and divers other pri- vileges are to be granted for encouraging the cultivation thereof. They write from tbe Hague, that the King of Prussia has given assurances to the Stadthol- der, that if the Imperial troops invade any part of his territory, he will employ his arms for his protection. extract of a Letter from Utrecht, 08. 12. " One of the German news- papers just re- ceived has the following article : " M. le Comte de Wassenaar, the Dutch Ambassador at Vienna, is making preparations for his speedy departure ; • nd in consequence of an immediate war between the Emperor and the Seven United Provinces deemed inevitable, the underwriters at being Genoa, and in all parts of Italy, refuse upon any terms to insure vessels sailing under Dutch colours." Letters from Cadiz, received on Monday, say, that on the 31st of July last, the hurricane, which did so much mischief on the island of Jamaica, destroyed several stone houses at Por- to- Bello, and laid waste most of the plantations in that settlement. Several Negroes were killed, and four vessels, richly laden, beat to pieces in the harbour. Other advices say, that the above hurricane was severely felt at Carthagena, and all along the Spanish coast ; and that it was preceded by three slight shocks of an earthquake. Extract of a Letter from on board the Salisbury man of war, dated Newfoundland, Sept. tor. , " The time of our station here being nearly expired, a few weeks will probably bring us once more to England. We expeCt to leave have had a very fine summer; the fishery has been very good, and near 200 sail of vessels have loaded for the European markets. A few of the ships which came out early make two voyages, as is often experienced by the Green- landers in those seas. The French vessels have in some instances been a little troublefome, by making willing mistakes, and getting out of their boundaries; the good conduct of Admiral Governor Campbell has however soon prevented this, by forcing them to a literal compliance with the treaties. The Americans are not al- lowed to fish on these banks ; but we suspect some have got at times among our fishers, as Well as those on the French side. The garrison here has been compleatly exchanged. This place was never more flourishing, nor has a sea son passed with fewer disasters; not a single ves- sel lost, though we have had some high winds and rough weather." Extract of a Letter from Calais, ti. " The French are making a canal from the ditch of the citadel at the upper part of the har- bour, leading to an extensive morass many miles within land, they say to drain it, and thereby gain a great extent of useful land; the fact is not so, they are doing it to increase the back wa- ter of Calais harbour, by letting the sea further into the country every tide, which, with the addition of the springs from this extensive mo- rass, will so increase the current upon the ebb as to scour out the sands of the harbour to a very great depth indeed. That will not only make Calais a rival and equally good port to the op- polite neighbour Dover, but far superior, unless the English should keep pace with them in im- provement. The French engineers are men of great judgment-, and what they are doing at Ca- lais is such a proof of it, as I fear we shall ex- perience in a future war ; for I much mistake in what they are about, if the increase of back wa- ter they will obtain will not render Calais a good port, not only for the large privateers, but also for frigates, and far better than Dunkirk ever was. They have already agreed to lay out near 100, oool sterling upon this work, and are likely t.. expend double that sum before it is com- pleat." ROBBERIES AND COMMITMENTS. On Monday se'nnight, one Edward Summers, a carpenter, was attacked by two footpads near the city of Gloucester, who robbed him of five shillings and some halfpence ; after which one of he villains cut off one of his ears and made off; but strict search being made after the robbers, the ear- cutter was apprehended on Tuesday, and committed to Gloucester Castle, to take his trial at the next assizes. Saturday evening, between six and seven o'clock, Mr. Jewers, brass- founder, near St. Luke's church in Old- street, was stopped in crossing Upper Moorfields by two fellows, who robbed him of his watch and money. Near the same time a poor washerwoman, who lives in Christopher's Alley, was stopped in crossing from the end of the above Alley towards Chiswell- street, and robbed of a bundle of linen which she was carrying home to one of her employers, and it is supposed by the same villains. Saturday night some villains broke into the house of Mr. Nichols, in Bell alley, Coleman- street, and carried off from the lower apart- ments a large quantity of linen, wearing apparel, all the brass and copper kitchen utensils, and in short every article that would admit of removal. Sunday evening, while the family were drink- ing tea in a back r00m, a thief threw up the sash of the front parlour, at Mr. Dixie's, at Bethnal Green, and stole a table- cloth, besides some spoons and other small articles of plate from the beauset. A short time before the property was missed, a man was seen to go out of the street- door with a bundle on his head, and to walk away in a deliberate and seemingly unconcerned manner. Sunday afternoon a man was apprehended on suspicion of being concerned with three others in breaking into the house of Mr. Pellatt, iron- monger, in St. John street, early the same morning, and stealing Bank- notes, plate, and other effects, to the amount of several hundred pounds; and being taken before Joseph Fakeney, E'q. after a short examination, he was com- mitted to New Prison for a further hearing. Monday afternoon about six o'clock as Mr. Rackstrow, shopkeeper at Brentford, was re- turning from London on horseback, he was stopped at Turnham- Green by two fellows, one of whom held his horse by the bridle, while the other, pointing a pistol to him, demanded his money ; which having delivered to the amount of about three pounds, they went off, but in a few minutes they stopped him a second time, and robbed of him his silver spurs. Monday morning, about one o'clock, the doors of the church of St. Botolph, Aldersgate, were found open by the watch; upon examin- ing the inside of the church, the thieves had stolen the gold fringe from the pulpit- cloth and cushion, and from tbe cloth at the altar. Last night some villains broke into the house of Mr. Gilliard, loom- maker, in Brick lane, Spitalfields, and carried off effects to the amount of between twenty and thirty pounds. CASUAL T Yesterday as the son of Mr. Barry, stable- keeper, near St. George's Church, in the Bo- rough, was exercising a young horse in Kent- street road, he was thrown from the back of the animal, and his neck being dislocated, he in- stantly expired. The CONDUCT of His MAJESTY'S LATE MINISTERS CONSIDERED, as it af- fected the EAST- INDIA COMPANY and . Mr. HASTINGS. By Major JOHN SCOTT. Printed- for J. Debrett. ( Continued from our last Paper.) IT has been insinuated that Mr. Hastings's mo- tive for disobeying the orders of the Court of Directors, was in order to strengthen his Par- liamentary interest at home, by providing for Gentlemen who had great and powerful connec- tions here ; but surely there never was a more unfounded charge than this is. Mr. Bristow's connexions in England were very powerful. He had two near relations in Parliament, Lord Westcote and the late General Fraser. He was patronized by Lord North's Administration Mr. Middleton,. on the other hand, was scarcely known in England except to Mr. Gregory, who had taken so hostile a part against the Go- vernor- General : Mr. Bristow came out at a time when his Lordship was desirous of supporting the Governor- General. If Mr. Hastings had studied to strengthen his own interest at home, ge could not have done it more effectually than by patronizing Mr. Bristow. Mr, Fowke was nearly related to Gentlemen With whom Mr. Hastings had passed the early part of his life. It was neither for his interest nor his ease to remove him, nor was it probable that he would be in a situation to want the ser- vice of Mr. Markham's friends in England : That Gentleman had been his private secretary ; he thought him the best qualified for the Residen- cy of Benares at the very critical minute in which he appointed him: but surely any candid man, who considers the case, will be convinced that Mr. Hastings neither acted from motives of enmity to Mr. Fowke, nor in order to insure the good offices of the Archbishop of York in Great Britain. I do not know a single instance in which Mr. Hastings has attended either to the mean gra- tification of perfonal resentment, or to the esta- blishment of a powerful interest in England, by the disposal of patronage in India. If the conduct and charasters of the civil and military servants who have been peculiarly employed by him, are scru- tinized, it will be found that no man in a public station has been more fortunate in distinguishing and employing in the public service men of ho nour and abilities than Mr. Hastings; and that he has never been at the pains to enquire whether their connections- in England were powerful or not *. It is the peculiar fate of Mr. Hastings to be accused by ope set of men, of wasting the public money for private purposes, and by an- other, of being totally inattentive to the recom- mendations of those who have the power of sup- porting him at home. In the course of the proceedings in Parliament on India affairs, the terms Usurper and Delin- quent have been applied to Mr. Hastings ; and Mr. Dundas in particular has been called upon to proceed against him as a delinquent. I could wish the public would attend to a curious fact, which that gentleman stated in the most direct and manly terms. He said, there were gen- tlemen present, who knew that he had been applied to formerly, to proceed against Mr. Hastings as a delinquent, but that he had pe- remptorily refused to do so; and for the best reason in the world, because he did not believe Mr. Hastings was a delinquent, nor had he ever thought him one : That he proposed his remo- val, from an opinion that he had forfeited the confidence of the native Princes of India, and that it was necessary, as a step preparatory to peace.— I can aver, that this is no new idea of Mr. Dundas; for, upon a former occasion, while the Maratta peace was depending, he de- clared his intention of removing Mr. Hastings by bill; but he expressly stated, that it was upon the idea of its being a measure of expe- diency, and not from an opinion of his delin- quency. It is very necessary this circumstance should be attended to, because a party in this country have wished to speak of the two Com- mittees, as if they perfectly coincided in their sentiments of Mr. Hastings, yet nothing can be more dissimilar than their opinions, and their conduct. Every thing that Mr. Dundas thought Mr. Hastings could not do, he has actually accomplished, in spite of the obstruc- tions which were thrown in his way, by the miserable politics of this country ; fo that every cause of objection to Mr. Hastings is removed, and it is no discredit to Mr. Dundas, to acknow- ledge that he was mistaken, or that, though his reports are fair and impartial, the conclusions he drew from them are contradicted by subse- quent events. But the Reports of the Select Committee go upon very different ground ; they certainly were intended to fix a very great degree of cri- minality upon Mr. Hastings. The essence of all theie Reports is contained in Mr. Burke's printed speech of the jd of December last, in which that gentleman fairly and fully appealed to the tribunal of the Public, and before the same respectable tribunal 1 also appeared.— To mere declamation I cannot reply ; but when po- sitive assertions are made, they are capable of proof, or contradiction. I have proved, by facts which are not to be controverted, that Mr. Burke has mistated a great variety of subjects; amongst the rest may be mentioned " The Rohilla War;" " the Maratta War;" " Mr. Hastings's Treat- ment of the Mogul," ' the Vizier,' " the Begums of Oud ;" " Disobedience of Orders:" Manage- ment of the Revenues; the Opium ContraCt; and " the Bullock Contract :" I have fully repli- ed to, and 1 have fully refuted all these charges : tho' it is a peculiar hardship attending Mr. Hastings, that while the most powerful and the ablest men in this kingdom have been diligently employed in effeCting his ruin, they have de- clared, that his conduct was not the objeCt of enquiry; and even the Ninth Report, which, from the first page of it to the last ( I mean Mr. Debrett's Report), is the most intemperate libel against him that ever was published, has the fol- lowing passage ; " The Reports of your Com- mittee are no charges, though they may possibly furnish matter for charge." Since I am upon the subject of the Reports of the Select Committee, 1 cannot avoid taking notice of a circumstance which I have publicly mentioned— that the evidence of Lieutenant- Colonel Robert Stuart, a gentleman who had been examined two days by the Select Commit- tee, was completely suppressed. The Tenth Report was made in order to prove that Mr. Hastings had been guilty of a breach of public faith, in withdrawing the Company's guarantee from the Begums of Oud, by which means the Vizier had re- assumed their Jaghires, and ac- quired possession of his father's treasures. Upon the subject of the Begums, I had the honour to * To prove this I could bring many instances. Mr. Shore is one of the number; that Gentle- man is called by Mr. Burke a " Creature of the Governor- General," because he was the leading Member in the management of the Revenue of Bengal, during the absence of Mr. David Ander- son. But the truth is, that Mr. Shore had a! ways lived in social intimacy with Mr. Francis, and was patronized by Mr. Hastings, from the high opinion he entertained of his abilities in the Revenue Line, without the smallest regard to his political opinions, or connections. 1 be examined, and my evidence is entered in the Appendix_ to the tenth Report-. Lieutenant- Co- lonel Harper ( who quitted India in 1773) was also examined, and his evidence is entered. Colo- nel Stuart was also examined, who had then just arrived in England ( February 1783), and ap- peared peculiarly calculated to give material in- formation, by having commanded a detachment in the Vizier's country ; but not the smallest re- ference is made to his evidence in the Report, and it is not entered in the Appendix. In short, it remains at this moment amongst the trials of minute, taken by the Select Committee. Colonel Stuart was examined on the 19th and 20th of February, 1783 ; and in answer to the questions put to him, he said, that he had served in India for many years, that he had commanded a detachment for ten months in Rohilcund that he never heard complaints of exactions by se- poys or officers in our service, from the Zemin- dars or inhabitants; that he lest Oud in June; 1781; the cultivation of the country was impair- ed from the time he first knew it ; that the Nabob Vizier had complained to Mr. Middle- ton, that his resources were much decreased and that he wished to strike off the heavy bur- then of the Jaghirdars ;— that he thinks Mr; Middleton mentioned this to him in the latter end of 1780;— that it was currently reported and believed, that ever since a few months after the late Vizier's death ( in 1775), ' 3" t' 1 gums, nnd the Nabob's uncles were all con- bined in a scheme against the British interest : — he heard that some correspondence, explanatory of that inimical disposition, had fallen into our hands :— he thinks ( in 1777) Zabita Cawn, the son of Nadjub Ul Dowla v sent an Ambassador to ths Vizier with a paper, said to be the origi- nal of a confederacy entered into by the diffe- rent Powers of India to act in concert with the French, to expel the British from India; and that the begums and Uncles, his relations, were said to be concerned in it : — that this circumstance was told him by the Ambassador of Zabita Cawn ; that he does not know of any act of hostility committed ; but Nudj ff Cawn declared his intention of entering the Vizier's country in a hostile manner; and as he commanded the Western Province, he took every precaution to frustrate his intentions: that Nuzeph Cawn never did enter the country in an hostile manner, as he knows of;— that he does not know the military force of the Begums, but thinks they could not have raised two regi- ments of sepoys: - that the Vizier attributed the decline of his country, to the specie being drawn from it; that the cause of that drain was the subsidies paid to the Company, and the public debts due by the late Vizier to the Com- pany ; and that there was a constant flow of trea- sure from Oude to Bengal:— that the Vizier did complain of the distress brought upon him by the number of troops kept in his country ; and that, in consequence, they were recalled from Rohil- cund and Futtygur; and several English Gen- tlemen were alio recalled :— That he first heard of the indisposition of the Begums to our Government, a very few months after the death of Sujah Dow- law in 1775) :— That he does not know of any treaty entered into by the English to protect the Begums in possession of their property :— that when the Ambassador of Zabita Cawn made the communication to him, he passed through his camp, and paid him a complimentary visit;— » that he did not communicate this intelligence to Mr. Hastings, as the Ambassador told him it had been communicated to the Resident at Lucknow, which he believed, or he should certainly him- self have sent intelligence of it to the Council General. These are some of the material parts of Colo- nel Stuart's evidence; and surely it applies infi- nitely more to the subject matter 0f the Tenth Report, than any part of- my evidence, or that « f Colonel Harper's, but it was wholly suppressed. Shall I not then rejoice that a tribunal is esta- blished, which will supersede this mode of inves- tigation ?— The injustice of the proceeding can only be equalled by its absurdity, unless the fact were really as it is stated to be in the Ninth Report: — " That the Committee makes no " charge."— But is that the case ? I appeal to the good sense of every man in England to deter* mine that it is not.— A Committee is appointed,- with power to send for papers, to examine evi- dences, and to draw up Reports.— Under these powers they examine several gentlemen at to a particular subject: one of them, an officer of high rank and character, is asked a number of questions relative to the state of Oude, and th « conduct of the Begums: his replies tend very fully to confirm what Mr. Hastings has asserted, and to justify his conduct towards those ladies f but the whole is suppressed. From no part the Tenth Report could the world suppose that there is such a man as Lieutenant- colonel Ro- bert Stuart in existence. But as the Reports are no charges, this is deemed of small consequence and whenever a charge is made, say the Repor- ters, " It will be at the discretion of the party " accused, to call for, and for the discretion of " the House of Commons to institute such pro- " ceedings, as may tend finally to condemn or " acquit." 9th Report, page 33.— 1 hope every man of honour will attend to the manner in which this doctrine is applied.

IT is determined that in time of peace the companies of infantry shall consist each of 104 men, and 174 in time of war, includ- ing six officers, namely, the first and second captains, two lieutenants, and two sub- lieute- nants. No alteration is intended with respect to the inferior officers. The six battalions of the regiments of French Guards are daily exer- cised in the stricted manner, in order to perfect them in all the manoeuvres and evolutions of War. A design is on foot for establishing manufac- tories for cloth, silks and linens intermixed with gold and silver in divers towns and villages, Where the workmen in that branch are to he exempted from certain taxes. It is imagined that if this plan is carried into effect, it will not only tend to revive the above manufactories to their former flourishing state in France, but also greatly to promote the agriculture of the coun- try. It is said the Marshal de Richelieu is employ- ed in writing Memoirs of th.: Courts of Louis XIV. Louis XV. and Louis XVI. In this no* bleman's garden stands a tower, having a gallery hung with portraits of the men and women who have distinguished themselves at Court, or in other respects remarkably attracted the public notice ; and to this valuable collection are added curious and interesting observations upon the deceased and existing characters. To this in- struCtive and amusing exhibition, however, some interest is necessary to obtain admission. M. l'Abbe de Crillon received from Madrid on the 8th instant a print of an amphibious ani- mal fouud among the Mountains of Chili. The length of this carnivorous creature from head to tail is eleven feet ; his body is covered with large scales ; his physiognomy resembles what daubing painters draw for the face of the moon ; at the end of his chin depends a long thick beard ; his forehead is broad, and armed with horns like those of an ox ; his ears are like those of an ass; his breast, as well as the features of his Countenance, have some resemblance to a man's ; on his back are two fins or wings for enabling him to Swim or fly ; his jaws are of an enormous size, set with teeth six inches long ; h s rump terminates in two tails, with one of which he Seizes his prey, and with the other he defends himself when attacked, it being armed with a short kind of dart, which he points in a threatening manner when provoked, uttering a horrible bellowing. This animal discharges a very offensive effluvia, like that ascribed by Virgil to the harp of Cylaeno. This creature is the male ; the female that was taken having escaped, still continues a terror to the inhabi- tants of Chili; his food is nearly a Whole sheep each day. This non descript animal was brought to Madrid on the 25th of September; and to gratify the curious, it is said he will be conveyed to Paris towards the end of winter. Brussells, Oct. 14. The Emperor having de- clared by his ultimatum, sent to the Dutch Ple- nipotentiaries in this city, that after the repeated infractions which the States- General had made in all the stipulations of the Treaty of Munster, of the 30th of January, 1648, which were ad vantageous to our provinces, he considered them as disengaged from the odious and unnatural yoke which the 14th article of that Treaty had imposed on them by the unfortunate circum- stances of the times, in shutting the entrance of the Scheldt against them, though it remained common as the open sea, by that Treaty, which in no point attributed the Sovereignty of it to the Republic ; notwithstanding which, to de- monstrate his disinterestedness and his desire of living in good friendship with the Republic, his Majesty was willing to renounce his evidently established and incouteftible Rights on the City of Maestricht, the County of Vroenhoven, and the Country of Dutch Outremeuse, as well as other different important objects which are in dispute With ths Republic, if on their side the latter would only acknowledge the opening and the absolute liberty of the Maritime Navigation of the Scheldt : but in the mean time his Majesty meant provisionally to exercise his right in that respect in re- establishing immediately that navi- gation, and that he should consider the least in- sult which might be offered to his flag as a de- claration of war and a formal act of hostility on the part of the Republic, which was positively repeated by a Memorial delivered to the Dutch Plenipotentiaries on the 17th of last month in answer to that of the 7th, by which the States- General have refused to accede to proposals so just and moderate, under the absurd and far- fetched pretence that the safety, the security, and the independence of the Republic depended on the shutting of the Scheldt: his Majesty or- dered his Government General of the Low Countries to execute what he had declared rela bravery which did them much honour, without any other accident than a slight wound which the Captain of the ship received in the face by a splinter of wood which flew from the mast, which was damaged by the cannonade. This violence, carried as we see to atrocity, and which the States- General thought they might commit, notwithstandiing the wise and sa- bitary counsel given them by the Court of Ver- sailles not to do any thing which might wound the dignity and respect due to his Majesty the Emperor, cannot but engage the attention of all Europe to the consequenees which must neces- sarily result from it. We have not yet any news of the other Impe- rial brigantine, which was to have sailed from Ostend to go up the Scheldt to Antwerp, and we are curious to learn whether it will be more ci- villy received by the squadron of Admiral Reynst, who waits for it at the entrance of the Scheldt. L O N D O N. Yesterday at noon their Majesties and the Princess Royal arrived at Kew from Windsor, from whence his Majesty immediately came to St. James's; the levee broke up at three o'clock ; the Secretaries of State, and others of the Mi- nistry, had conferences with his Majesty til near five, when he returned to Kew. It is some months since we informed the pub- lic of the hostile disposition that appeared on the part of France in their Settlements at Newfound- land. We spoke from good authority, and we are sorry to find that the subsequent Conduct of the Governor and officers of France in that part of the world justifies the opinion we formerly gave upon that subject. If the report that prevails at Portsmouth is true, this country cannot be very distant from experiencing the calamities of another war. An English frigate, employed to protect our fishery, has received some indignity from the French Admiral. We have read a letter from a gentleman at Ports- mouth, mentioning this circumstance, and who says it is generally believed to be a fact. It is incumbent upen our Ministers to inform the pub- lic how the affair has been represented to them, or whether there is any foundation for the re- port.— Gazetteer. Extract of a Letter from Newbury in Berkshire. " Friday's post brought several letters to this place, among which was one addressed to the Mayor and Corporation, signifying that Mr. Blanchard and Mr. Sheldon had determined to pay a visit to Newbury in their atmosphetical vehicle, and that they would descend in tbe fine extensive meadow behind Northbrook- street. This news spread like wildfire through all the adjacent towns and villages. Saturday morning the flag was displayed upon the Town- hall; and before noon the neighbourhood had poured forth all its inhabitants, who being joined in the meadow by great numbers from the surround- ing towns and villages for many miles, a group of about two thousand was collected by one o'clock. The carpenters brought planks, and tressels being procured from the undertakers and other tradesmen, for supporting them, a sort of homely tables were formed, round which; the rustics crouded to regale themselves with ale and cakes, the consumption of which greatly exceeded that, in the same space of time, at our late annual fair. In the mean time, those in a more polished station formed themselves into small parties, keeping their optics immoveably directed " full in the wind's eye," momentarily expediting the organs of vision to be gratified by the appearance of the travellers in the " trackless regions of the air." In short, till the near ap- proach of evening, all was jollity and meriment; but as the apprehension of being deceived en- creased, the good- humour of a large part of the company subsided. Disappointment excited mirth in some, who laughed at each other's credulity; others were sullen, and retired in silence, or muttering dissatisfaction."

When Mr. Blanchard's balloon came down in the garden adjacent to Mr. Loohee's, he was very urgent with Mr. Sheldon to alight, and suf- fer him to make his voyage alone. Mr. Shel- don would not comply, and a short dispute took place. If you are my friend, says Mr. Blan- chard, you will alight. My same, my all, de- pends on my success.

At Worcester market, on Friday and Satur- day last, 1032 pockets of hops were sold ; prices from 3!. to Jl. ids. per cwt. On Monday last, as one of the constables be longing to Greenwich, was conveying two pri- soners to Maidstone gaol in his cart, who were fully committed there for a capital felony, they stopped to dine ; when one of the villains stole a knife, and in going along, the constable riding on the seat before, he took an opportunity to cut his throat, on which he fell from his seat, and shortly after expired. Two postboys com- ing by secured them again, and with other assist- ance conveyed them to the above prison. Yesterday an elderly man was carried before the Lord- Mayor,. charged with forging and sell ing 5800 twopenny stamps, for which he had 6 guineas. In his defence he said they were sent to him from Dunstable to be sold, and de- ired time to produce the persons; when his Lord- ship granted him till to- morrow for a further examination, that in the mean time he might give up the persons he had them of, and where the dye is to be found. Last week were committed to Bristol Newgate, Richard Morgan and Richard Incell, labourers, for stealing a watch the property of J. T. C. Tre- villian, Esq. and for assaulting him, and by threats and menaces to murder him, unlawfully obtaining from him a promissory note for the payment of the sum of 500!. Saturday five well dressed men had fixed a telescope in a tree near the spot from whence the balloon was to ascend, and after having looked through it themselves, genteelly offered several well- looking spectators an opportunity of doing the same, and in helping them to get up, as genteelly picked their pockets. JUSTICE RUSSEL's FUNERAL. THE Union Hall having been refused by the trustees of that building, the corpse of the late Joseph Russel, esq lay in state at his late house in Bermondsey- street, from whence it was re- moved in the following manner : Staff men to clear the way, Constables with hatbands. A mourning coach and four with the four young ladies to strew the flowers, all dressed in white silk, with nosegays and flower baskets on their arms. The plume of feathers supported. A hearse and six with the body properly cloathed and drest with feathers, velvets, escutcheons, flags, Sic. A coach and four with two of the pall- bearers, ( females) dressed in black sarsenet with white gloves, scarves, hoods, and fans, and nosegays in the right hand. A ditto with two ditto. A ditto with two ditto. A mourning coach and four with three clergy- men, viz. Rev. Mr. Penneck, Rector of St. John's, Rev. Mr. Abdy, Curate of St. John's, and the Rev. Mr. Grose. Six other mourning coaches and four with two friends of the deceased in each. The procession set off at twelve o'clock, and moved slowly, partly from the etiquette, and partly from the number of people assembled up Bermondsey- street, Tooley- street, and Fair- street, Horsleydown, to the front gate of the church, where it arrived a quarter before one. When they arrived, the concourse of people within and without the church- yard was so great, that the young ladies, strewers, were obliged to be carried through the croud into the Church, and when the corpse was taken out of the hearse ( with great difficulty) the men ( ten in number) were nearly falling down under its weight, be- fore a passage could be cleared to get it to the Church. No pall could be put on, and the pall- bearers ( ladies) were with great hazard, and in a very trembling condition, got safe to the same place. The clergy and mourners, the latter particularly, met with as indifferent a re- ception. The feathers could not be borne be- fore the body ; nor was the path strewed but with hisses, groans, throwing of dirt, and other missile weapons: at length it was placed on the tressels in the middle aisle; and the flower- strewers, pall- bearers, mourners, & c. at length arranged, the organ struck up a funeral dirge, but so great was the noise, that nothing distinCt could be heard. The Curate then read the bu- rial service, not a syllable of which could be heard, owing to a confusion of mock sighs, groans, & c. all in contempt to the deceased. The first service being finished, the body was then borne to the vault below the Church, and there deposited in a stone case which had been provided for its reception on the pavement, about the centre of the gloomy mansion. The after service here was not a little inter- rupted also from the noise without. So thronged a church was, perhaps, hardly ever seen before in this metropolis ; and so great a disturbance at a ceremony usually solemn has occurred but seldom. The young ladies at the funeral appeared nearly as dead as the corpse they were attending, though their dress, in which there was a perfect uniformity, added a great lustre to their pallid charms. The clergy were never, perhaps, so sweated before on such an oc- casion ; and. the church was so intenfely hot, though the windows were all open, that ladies and gentlemen fainted away, among which last were two of the mourners, who were brought out of church, and conveyed into the vestry. When the funeral was ended, the attendants with difficulty were put into their coaches, and arrived back at the late deceased's house about three o'clock. The outer coffin was of walnut- tree, rubbed very bright, with silver plate- handles, and other ornaments; the body was drest in linen, and the lid so contrived as to shut close without screws. The pulpit and desk of the church were hung with black and escutcheons, as was also the front of the organ- loft. Previous to the procession setting out, the effigy Of the deceased, with a label on its breast, waS hung on a gallows before his own doors and such distinguished marks of indignity shewn as happen but seldom. Mr. Russel's own father was buried at St. Mary Magdalen's, Bermondsey, a few years ago, when some such severe marks of similar in- dignation were used, which occasioned his orders to change the place of his otherwise intended burial. The young ladies who attended Mr Russel's funeral at St. John's, were all relations of the deceased, except Miss Jones, of Tooley- street, and the two Miss Leavis's, of Bermondseyj The house of the late Mr. Russell Was very ill suited to the exhibition of his lying in state. As the consent of several proprietors had been obtained, and some of the executors are also proprietors it was always intended that the body should lie in state at Union Hall; for which a sum of fifteen or twenty guineas was to have been paid ; but when the undertaker was proceeding on Saturday last to hang the Hall and passages with black cloth, he was told that Justice Smith, who is one of about twenty- four proprietors, had left word, that he should not lie there, without payment of a very exorbitant sum ) and that if the undertaker put up the cloth, he would come, and cut or tear it down. A majority of proprietors would certainly have disapproved of Mr. Smith's conduCt; but there was not time to see them, living as they do in different and distant Situations. The undertaker is one of the executors; therefore being con- vinced that Mr, Carpenter Smith would persist in his threats, they, concluded on making the exhibition in Bermondsey- street. SPECTACLES. The Hay- market Theatre Was crouded on Wednesday evening to see the deceptions of Mr. Pinetti. It was really entertaining to observe the avidity of the people to be deceived — It was considered as an ungracious office in those who endeavoured to open the eyes of their neighbours, and several who laughed at the weak credulity of the rest were severely checked.—" We came here to be deceived, and it is unkind in you," says a lady to a gentleman who sat in the same box, " to rob me of my pleasure. If you are too wise or too gloomy to be entertained with juggling, why did you come here ? There are rational amusements for your very lagacious peo- ple ; and we beg you will Suffer us to remain the delighted dupes of our own senses.'' This re- buke, or something like it, Was pretty general at first, and John Bull enjoyed the tricks with no other abatement of his pleasure, Save the te- diouSness with which they were performed. But when Signor Pinetti failed in some of his mea- sures— when he commanded a box to open, and it was too sulky to obey him— when he repeat- edly shot his pistol, and no card appeared to flick again it the wall, and when at last, provoked at the dullness of his confederate behind the Screen, he flew upon a rage and discovered the artifice- John Bull began to grumble, and expressed his diSappoinment in loud and continued hisses. The multitude was assembled ehiefly by the pro- mise that a man's Shirt should be taken off, " without any otherwise undressing him, or causing the least immodetly." It seemed as if this had been given out for the purpose of trying the full extent of our Englishman's patience. A fellow was got, who was ready to assist in the experiment; and by command of the conjurer he stripped his coat and waistcoat, and put on a loose great coat. Mr. Pinetti then threw a large black cloak over his body, and in this manner he stood, while the juggler pulled his shirt over his head, thrusting the body of it at the same time into the inside of the great coat-; He then drew out one arm, and then, as it may be ima- gined, was able with perfect ease to strip the whole through the other sleeve of the coat. So palpable a humbug was too much for the pa- tience of fifteen hundred people ; nor indeed could the reconcile to themselves the grossness of the matter. The beautiful Lady Spencer and other noble and delicate ladies were present $ and though those absurdities were practising, it was still a Theatre Royal, dedicated to the exhibition of the English drama. The house burst into an uproar of dissatisfaction, and if this piece of bottle conjuration had not conclu- ded the night's performance, the audieuce would in all probability have peeped behind the cur- tain, and given themselves more insight into the matter than they in the beginning seemed willing to accept. The juggler, though he did not understand English, seemed perfectly sensible that he was wrong( and he made many scrapes and bows, and assured them that he Would in future perform more wonderful tricks; which means, we suppose, that if John Bull will be patient, he Will, instead of his shirt, strip him of his skin MARRIED, Tuesday last at Birmingham in the county of Worcester, the Rev.

Get wisdom : in her train the virtues shine ; Thy guides with Hope and Faith, to bliss divine. Get wisdom— arduous aim! - Not hopeless. Run. Begin. Half- ended is the race begun. Fleet, even at starting for the vigor's meed, Fly, the whole course is glowing, fleeter speed. The stripling drone, for life a driv'ler, ends A shame, a burthen to himself and friends. As idly toil these dolts, in chace as vain Of air gilt bubbles, pleasure, grandeur, gain. Ill does an earth- worm's offal, thy pursuit, Base worldling, a celestial spirit suit, Born to hold commerce with its kindred skies, From strength to strength, to glory born to rise.-- *' Who talks of spirit? All corporeal grown, Each thinks of seeming now, of being none j A brilliant equipage, a modish wife, . " The flutter, noise, and outside glare of life. " In building, gard'ning, sordid is the plan, 11 That suits the rank and fortune of the man ; " AbjeCt the taste, that stoops to things of use, Poor the best- order'd board, if not profuse."— Rare nostrums these, to heal a fev'rish heart! Act thou the rational, the decent part, Which truth, pure nature, and religion trace, With moral dignity, with manly grace ; Fair Virtue's offspring Pleasure, lovely ward Of Heav'n- taught Wisdom, shall thy truth re- ward With grandeur, gain, unsullied as the ray That gilds yon sky- topt dome in cloudless day ; While sadd'ning damps, and low- born vapours drown The revels, pomps and traffic of the town. Above dependence rais'd by gentle fate, Pity the slaves condemn'd to court the great, They blush to own. The genuine great revere, Whose high deserts adorn their stated sphere. Be thine deserts as high, the gen'rous aim From man to merit, not solicit fame. Be thine the triumphs of a soul serene, The smile of Reason, and a golden mean. Be thine the praise of God : nor stoop to rail, If humbler projects of ambition fail. BETHLEM HOSPITAL. Oct. 16th, 1784. HE Committee for conducting the Affairs of this Hospital think it proper to inform the Public, that, encouraged by some late Benefactions. they have resolved to take into the House, TEN INCURABLE LUNATIC. PATIENTS in Addition to the ONE HUN- DRED INCURABLES, who were before maintained in the HOSPITAL. From the dreadful Accidents, fatal to the Lives of many, that have been occasioned by insane Persons, as well as from the heavy Burthen and Expence that fall upon the friends of necessitous Lunatics, the Committee are im- pressed with the strongest Conviction, that the Extension of THIS BRANCH of the Charity is a Work which Hu- manity and Policy unite to recommend. There are generally upon the Incurable List more than Two Hundred DANGEROUS Lunatics, that is, Persons who have been Dischargcd without Hopes of Cure, and who wait to be re- admitted, in Turn, whenever Vacancics shall be made by the Death of thofe already harboured in the Hospital. J A Period of some Years must elapse before an INCURA- BLE can be again taken in ; and as Mischiefs of the most serious and affecting Nature frequently happen during that Interval, the Committee conceive they cannot perform a Service of greater Utility to the Public, than by attempt- ing to shorten its Duration. They have therefore given Directions for a Survey to be made of all the Apartments and Accommodations in the Hospital, in order that it may be made capable of containing a still greater Number of INCURABLE PATIENTS, if, through the Benevolence of the Well- disposed, they shall be enabled to support them. HENRY WHITE, Steward. Postscript. Thursday Afternoon, Oct 21. L O N D O N. The Emperor's Manifesto shews him deter- mined not to relax in the least : he offers the Dutch what they care not a stiver for, and they in return must give to him what they look upon as their most precious treasure: whether indeed treasure was honestly come by, will bear some dispute. Taking advantage of the weak state of the House of Austria, that avaricious and then haughty Republic extorted from it the most hu- miliating as well as disadvantageous concessions. Treaties of that kind are never observed longer than an opportunity offers for breaking them ; the Emperor thinks he has now a fair one, and that it it confident with political justice to re- cover what his ancestors parted with, merely be- cause it was not in their power to retain it. He will therefore laugh at all the references made by the Dutch to Treaties, which he will with the usual casuistry of Sovereigns say, being con- trary to the rules of natural justice, are in them- selves null and void : and in this he will be able to plead the unvaried practice of all kingdoms and states, from the earliest ages to the present; the Dutch annals will furnish him with innume- rable precedents; and he will tell them that they cannot complain, if he now retaliates upon them the treatment they gave to his family. Extract of a Letter from Amsterdam, Oct. I 2. " Matters are now seemingly come to a crisis between this Republic and the Emperor. The vessel which he sent down the Scheldt from Antwerp, by way of experiment, to open the navigation, has been fired upon, and stopped by Violence, by the Dutch man of war statiOned there ; an action which both the Government at Brussells and the Imperial Minister at the Hague repeatedly intimated to the States should he considered as a declaration of war; so that we may soon expeCt to hear Of the commencement of hostilities. We should suppose, that if the Republick is to stand single in this struggle, the war will be of short duration, and that matters will soon be settled, though probably with more disadvantage to the Dutch than might have been done before this aCt of hostility on their part; but if the neighbouring powers interfere in earnest, it may become a very serious and ge- neral affair on the Continent. France, outward- ly at least, seems hitherto by no means inclined to take a share, and recommends peaceful mea- sures to the Republick ; and surely England will endeavour to avail herself of the many advan- tages she will enjoy by remaining neuter ; but, by the low price of your funds, it would seem as if there was some apprehension of her taking a part. The States came last night to a resolu- tion of increasing their land forces with 14,000 men." , Extract of a Letter from Middleburgh, Oct. 11. " Ever since the affair of the Imperial vessel . in the Scheldt an embargo f- r 14. days was laid on all the vessels ( not foreign) in the ports of Zealand, which will be taken off or prolonged at the expiration of that time, as circumstances require." Extract of a Letter from Rotterdam, OH. n. " The Admiralty of this port have just given orders to equip the Wagrien 44, Merlin 28; Snoock 24, and Delft 23 guns, for sea, with all possible dispatch. Recruiting parties are now beating up for Volunteers in this province With great diligence, to fill up the vacancies in our national regiments, as a war, and that a land one, the m0st impolitic for this country, must now take place; indeed it has already begun, and hostilities have been committed on both sides." The daily accounts we receive from America of thousands of emigrants arriving there from Scotland and Ireland, must alarm every man who has the least regard for this country. If Government does not speedily interpose, and put a stop to this pernicious practice, those king doms, will foon be reduced to mere deserts. It is usually said, that people cannot be detained in a country by force ; that where there are more inhabitants than can find subsistence, the over- plus is only a dead weight, and that permitting them to depart is not only an act of humanity to them, but a relief and even benefit to the Public. But this reasoning, however specious, is sophistical. The point to be examined it, whether these emigrants really are so desti- ute as is pretended ? whether they are not ra- ther decoyed by the insidious arts of Captains of ships and others to leave their country on the prospeCt of speedily accumulating riches ? instead of which they are immediately reduced to a state of the most wretched slavery, their service lost to their country, and themselves made miser- able for life. A very slight enquiry would dis- cover to which of these causes this depopulation is owing. If real necessity forces those unfortu- nate people to leave their homes, no stone ought to be left unturned to procure them a means of subsistence ; if oppression drives them from their native land, let redress be immediately afforded ; if they are deluded by the fraud, and villainy Of kidnappers, let these be made severe ex- amples of, and at the same time a law be enaCted subjeCting those who shall be found wantonly endeavouring to abandon their country to cer- tain penalties. Above all, let it be made felony - in any Captain to indent people, as is now the practice, and let n0 ship be suffered to leave any port until it be carefully examined whether there be any such passengers 011 board. The Americans seem desirous of opening a trade to the East Indies, but how it will be possi- ble for them to carry it on is not clear. They can neither export thither live cattle, lumber, peltry, tobacco, nor rice ; their ships therefore must go thither empty, and every article they purchase be paid for in hard dollars, of which they do not seem to have many to spare : they must therefore purchase 0n very disad- vantageous terms, and cannot afford to sell at so low a rate as other nations trading to those parts, Who have a profit both on their outward and homeward voyages. Consequently they can only dispose of what will be sufficient for their own consumption ; and this they might procure at an easier price from those European nations trading to the East who take off their produce. But considering the complexion of the United States, it is more than probable they will make free with the cargoes of such vessels as happen to come in their way, and thus freight their own at an easy rate. In truth this seems to be the only motive that could induce them to think of commencing an intercourse with India. A letter from Lisbon, by a ship arrived in the River, says, that they have had such blowing weather on that coast that several ships were lost, and some of the crews drowned ; that those lost are two Portuguese ships, a Spanish, and three French ships. A report is circulating that the East- India Company have purchased all the Imperial teas that were lodged in the warehouses at Ostend. If this be true, the public will soon buy tea as cheap as now they ought,- in spite of the smug- gling combination and their agents, who cannot then raise the price of teas for want of such a market to have recourse to. Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, Oct. 20. 41 Sailed several light colliers and some coast- ers, for the Eastward ; and the Earl of Oxford East- Indiaman, for the River; John, Hutchin- son; William and Elizabeth, Lowther; Char- lotte, Long; and Jane and Jannet, Kennell, all for London ; Happy Return, Collins, for Hall ; and the Helena, Harrison, for Frederickstadt.

The Westminster Scrutiny yesterday stood, fifty- five had, thirteen- good, four reserved, one unfinished. Several of the first characters in the kingdom have visited the lakes of Cumberland and West- moreland, in the course of last summer. Mr. Wilberforce was several days with Lord Mun- caster at' Muncaster- house, and has, we are in- formed, taken a neat box in the neighbourhood of the lakes, near Rayrigg, in Westmoreland. The following receipt is almost infallible in the cure of all kinds of agues ':— Take two table spoonfuls of the juice expressed from sage well pounded, add an equal quantity of vinegar, and let the patient swallow the dose when the fit comes on. A correspondent who has experienced the be- neficial effcCts of the Jesuits Bark in the gout Recommends the use of it to such as may be af fliCted with that terrible disorder. His method is, as soon as he perceives the least symptom of the approach of the disorder, to have recourse to the Bark which, he takes in Red Port, and repeats it till his gouty complaints have left him. At Sheffield market on Tuesday last, a farmer was defrauded out of twenty pounds by a Swin- dler taking up a ring in the street worth two hun dred pounds, for half of which he paid the above sum ; and the swindler immediately de- camped, leaving the farmer the ring, that was upon examination found to be not worth a sin- gle shilling .'

Yesterday some of Sir Sampson Wright's runners went to Rochester, in quest of two men suspeCted of being concerned in the capital rob- bery committed 0n board the Dutch ship lately mentioned in the Papers, when one of them was taken, but the other out- running his pursuers made his escape ; and this morning another was apprehended on the same account, and carried to the New Gaol. Saturday se'nnight John Stables, of Quorn- don, near Loughborough, having been drinking at a public- house in that village, and making too free with liquor, fell down 0n the turnpike road, in going home, and a broad- wheeled waggon went over his head, and killed him on the spot.

Leeds, Oct. 19 On Thursday the 30th ult. a man Went into the shop of Mr. Salomon silversmith and jeweller in King- street, Whiteha- ven, and offered to sell several articles of plate and jewellery considerably below the value his appearance raising a suspicion in Mr. Salo- mon, he declined purchasing any of the goods, but gave notice t0 the magistrates. Search was made for the man privately, but without effeCt, till Thurfday se'nnight, when he again called at Mr. Salomon's, and was apprehended imme- diately after. He was taken before William Hicks, Esq. and the Rev. Wilfred Hudleston, and underwent a long examination. His box be- ing produced, and a schedule taken of the se- veral valuable articles found in his possession, every thing was ready for his commitment, when the Hue and Cry from the Public Office in Bow- street, London, was brought in. It was published the 1st inst. and in a long advertise- ment described a person called Thomas Johnson, who had formerly lived with Mr. Whiteaves, silversmith in Fleet- strect, having obtained a va- riety of articles by false pretences, and had ab- sconded along with a washerwoman, who lived on Saffron- hill. The description of Johnson's person corresponded with the appearance of the prisoner, and many of the articles mentioned in the advertisement were aCtually found upon him. The property advertised is supposed to be . about 600I. the articles found in Johnson's pos- session amount to about 150I. which were secured ' for the owners.— A woman who was along with • him was also taken up, and they are both com- mitted to Carlisle jail.
