The refolves of the States upon this were, that the deputation of foreign aftsug; fhould be ordered to confer with the Prufiian jlfryLinglifti Minifters as often as they E leafed ; buI lM'p other foreign Minifters reftding ere, and. particularly the Ruffian, it was refolved, with confent of, the King, that if they defired a Conference, they fhould notify to the Deputation the reafons for'which they wifhed it. The moderation of the Ruffian Court in all thefe circumftances . occafions much fpeculation.

This wretched fituation was again aggravated by the galling of the chains, now become infnpportable, and the filth of the necefi'ury tubs, into which children often fell, and were fuffocated.

T H I S day, at three o'clock, his Majefty came in ftate to the Houfe, and being feared on the throne in his robes, the Prince of Wales on his right, and the Dukes of York and Clarence on his left, a meffage was fent by Sir Francis Molyneux, Gentleman Uflier of the Bjack Rod, to the Commons, commanding their immediate attendance. The Commons being come to the Bar of the Houfe accoriiingly, they prefentcd to his Majefty for his Royal approbation, Henry Addington, Efq. their Speaker eleCt. Mr. Addington, in an able fpeech, replete with modefty and diffidence, addreffed his Majefty to the following effeCt : He had it in command from the Commons of England to acquaint his Majefty that they had been pleafed to confer the honour on him of choofing him to be their Speaker. He felt himfelf unequal to the arduous talk the partiality of his friends had conferred on him ; he diftrufted his own abilities, and fearing that they would not be adequate to the difcharge of- the office, hoped his Majeily would be plealed to difapprove of the choice of the Commons/ and give them an opportunity of eledting a perfon better qualified to the difcharge of the duties of an office of fo much importance. The Lord Chancellor, having communed with his Majefty on the election of the Commons, came forward, and faid, tliat his Majefty approved of j the proceedings of his faithfiul Commons, in their • choice of their new Speaker; he prefaged from the becoming diffidence of the Gentleman eleCled fliebeft profpeft of his proving fully adequate to the difciiarge of the important duties of his high office, with honour to himfelf, advantage to the Houfe of Commons, and credit to the country. The Speaker then addrefled himfelf again to his t Majefty, and in an elegant and refpettful man- i t ner, exprefled his deep and grateful fenle of the high honour conferred upon him by his Majefty* s gracious condeftenfion in approving the choice of the Houfe of Commons. He allured his Majefty that he fhould confider his unremitted efforts to fupporl the forms and privileges of the Houfe of Commons, the ancient bulwarks of the Conftitution, the belt return he could offer for the gracious fayour of his Sovereign. The Kifg was then pleafed to retire, and the Commons withdrew. ? K. IT& OW ' of CONSCIENCE. The order of the day being read for the fecond reading of Lord- Stanhope's Bill for the repeal of certain penal ftatutes for not attending Divine Worlhip, & c. The Archhijhop of Canterbury rofe, and contended that if the Bill before their Lordfhips fhouid be palled into a law, it would be of infinite injury and danger to the eftablifhed Church, as it went to the adtual repeal of a great number of ftatutes,, though it at firft view appeared only to aim at the repeal of four or. five. He admitted that there were many ftatutes which difgraced the timed in whiah they were paffed ; he agreed that fome ought to be repealed and others amended; it was however of the utmoit importance that fo great a fubjed fhould not be taken up lightly, or decided on without the moft feriotis confideration. He reprabrated the claufe granting liberty to write, • print, and publifh all kinds of investigations whatever upon religious topicks; fuch a liberty, he faid, would tend to the fubverfion of peace and good order. The Bill was throughout particularly exceptionable, and he hoped their Lordfhips would not fuffer it to proceed any further. The Bifhop of Bangor dreaded the Mifchiefs that would arife fliould the Bill before their Lordfhips be carried into a law; the fabbath would be negleCted, and the little religion at prefent in the country would be wholly forgot. l^ ord Stormont fpoke againft t h e Bill. The Queftion was then put and negatived without a divilion. Adjourned. Wednefday, June 10. THEIR Lordlhips proceeded further in the tryal of Warren Haitings, Efq.

" 5 E T W E E N four and'five o'clock, the Members having taken their places, Mr. Hatfell, the Clerk, informed them, that he had juft received a letter from the Speaker, which, with the permiffion of the Houfe, he would read. This epiftle was, in fubitance, as follows : that the Speaker had been lately promoted by his Majefty to the office of Secretary of State, in the room of Lord Sydney; that,, in confequence of his having accepted this office, he was precluded from the further eXercife of the duties of that employment which the Houfe had, fome time ago, thought proper to confer on him: that it was, therefore incumbent on him to refign his fituatipn as Speaker : and, in fo doing, he was forcibly impelled to embrace this opportunity of returning his warmelt acknowledgments to the Houfe for the high mark cf favour with which they had honoured him. After Mr. Hatfell had read the letter, he ordered the Serjeant at Arms to bring in the mace'; which was complied with; The Chancellor of the Exchequer immediately rofe, And read a fhort meffage fronVijis Majefty, expreliing his defire that the Houfe would proceed to the eleftion of a" new Speaker with all convenient fpeed, and that the peri'on whom they fhould eleft fhould be prefented in the Houfe of Peers, on Tuefday next, for the Royal approbation. He then moved that the Houfe do now adjourn till Monday next, on which day the vacancy in the chair will be lupplied. This motion was agreed to, and the members • feparated. '•••'• Motttfdyi June 8;- • • » * E L E C T I O N OF A SPEAKER,, THE Marquil of Graham opened the bufmefs of the day. His Lordlhip faid that as their late Speaker had been called to a higher fituation, and to a place where his talents and abilities would be exercifed to greater publick advantage than in that Houfc, it was with pleafsre he whs enabled to propofe to the Houfe a Gentleman capable of filling the Chair with honour to himfelf, and dignity to the Houfe. The Hon. Gentleman he meant to propofe was Henry Addington, Efq. he was a Gentlemen poffeffed of every requifite qualification, he peffeffed confiderable abilities, he had been bred to the Law, he had been particularly afliduous in attending to the forms and rules of the Houfe, and from his age and conduction he was capable of undergoing the fatigues of the office. After fome further panegyrick on the Hon. Gentleman, lie concluded by, moving, that Henry Addington, Efq. be called to the Chair of this Houfe. Mr. Grofvcnor feconded the motion from a convidtion of the propofed Gentleman being able to fill the Chair with high honour to himfelf, and the Houfe, his found conftitutional knowledge, his temper, his prudence, and politenefs, qnalih- ' cations he poffefled in an eminent degree, rendered him a fit objeCt for the choice of the Houle. Mr. W. Ellis rofe for the fame purpofe he faid as the laft vacancy of the Chair, namely, to propofe for that important office, his Hon. Friend ( Sir Gilbert Elliot). He would not dwell upon, nor trouble the Houfe with the virtues and qualifications of his Hon. Friend ; it would be vanity in him to do fo, the Houfe of their own knowledge being fully acquainted with the great merits of the Hon. Baronet. He was willing to admit every thing Urged in favour of the Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Addington), for whofe character and abilities he had the higheft refpect; there was, however, one requifite wanting which neither learning, charadter, or abilities, could give, he meant experience. To ' ride in the whirlwind, and direct the ll'orm,' which frequently occurred in that Hbufe required much fkill and experience, < ind to attain that effential requifite, to govern with applaufe, and to guide with a fteady hand, the Hon. Gentleman ought to wait awhile until his abilities Were matured by time. In the mean time he propbfed that his Hon. Friend fhculd be called to the office, and fhould he be fo fortunate as to fucceed, the Hofife would have the pleafiure to contemplate the abllki-' s of the Hon. Gentleman maturing, under the Hon. Baronet, and as a thriving plant under his influence, gaining that found judgement and knowledge which would hereafter enable him to fill the Chair with great credit to himfelf, and fervice to the Houfe. He concluded by moving that Sir Gilbert Elliot, Bart, be appointed Speaker. j Mr. F. Montagu feconded the motion;, and fajd though on that fide of the Houfe they could nipt • command fuccefs, in that inftance he was fute they deferved it.— He infilled on the neceffity bf having the Chair filled by a perfon of experience ; he admired the character and abilities of Mr. A | - 1 dington, but preferred the Hon. Baronet as beitlg t in poffeffiou of thofe abilities, aided by long ex- ' perience. He impreffed on the Houfe the mildnefs of the difpofition of the Hon. Baronet, the gentlenefs of his mind, joined with a proper firmnefs, ne" effary to fupport the rights and privileges of the Houle. Mr. Addington rofe to exprefs the gratitude he felt to his Friends, whofe partiality for him had prompted them to praife in him qualifications he was not poffefled of. The Hon. Gentleman ftated the importance of the office of Speaker, and the qualifications neceflary to enable any one to hold it;— he found himfelf wholly inadequate to fo important a truft, and fincerely hoped the Houfe would look round for a fitter objeCt. He expreiTed his warmelt refpeft for the Plon. Baronet, whofe abilities he always looked up to with admiration. He concluded with thanking his Friends for the honour they had done him in propofing hini to the Chair. Sir Gilbert Elliot rofe alfo to exprefs the gratitude he felt to his Friends for their nomination of him; he entered into the qualifications neceffary to fill the Chair with honour to the Houfe, and declared that he was confcious of his incapacity.— He agreed with every thing advanced in favour of the Hon. Gentleman oppofite him, whofe excufes he was not willing to accept: He refpeCted, his character and abilities, and would give him, his vote. Mr. Fox faid he confidered it a painful talk to fpeak on the comparative merits of two Gentlemen ; but in what he fliould fay, he by no means meant either to bellow any improper compliment on one, or any invidious or detracting remark on the other. He was willing to admit every thing ; that had been urged in favour of Mr. Addington; < whatever he had heard of that Gentleman's cha- , raCter and ability was highly to his honour; he j could not, however, avoid remarking 011 the* un- ; fortunate manner in which he had been propofed by the Noble Marquis, who had ufed a language not. fit to be held in that houfe, namely,* tha, t an individual could be called to a higher fituation than the chair of that Houfe, and to a place where abilities might be exercifed to greater advantage ; this doCtrine he denied, and contended that no higher fituation' exifted, nor could abilities be exercifed any where to greater advantage. He wilhed the Houie to confider fairly the y. hgle that I had been faid in favour of Mr. Addington : they were told to belie ve that lie had confiderable abilities, and that he pcfl'effed the many qualifications neceflary to fill the chair ; the Houfe need not, however, be told that the Hon. Baronet poffelfed all the abilities they w .' re told to believe were poffelfed by Mr. Addington, for the Houfe knew the qualifications of his Hon. Friend. The only queftion he Could fee before the Houfe was, whether. tiiey would prefer reported abilities, and take them on credit, or take weifctried, well- known abilities r— He could not avoid thinking that the Right Hon. Gentlemen ( Mr. Pitt) had propofed . fo young a member, folely for the purpofe of trying his ftrength with the Houfe, and how far their confidence would fupport him ; the Houfe ought, on fo important an occafion, to confider whether their confidence might not be carryed to abufe ; he hoped that they would think and judge for themfelves, in choofing a reprefentative to appear befor? their Sovereign, and to ftand between him and the people, for on the'r choice depended the dignity and honour of that eflential branch of the Legiflature, The Chancellor of the Exchequer rofe in reply 5 he Ihould not have faid a Angle word on the prefent Occafion had it not been to deny his proceeding on the ground mentioned by the Right Hon. Gentleman ; he wilhed no Gentleman to vote on con* fidence, but on their own knowledge, on their own obfervation and conviClion. He was willing to admit every praife bellowed on the Hon. Baronet, but much of that praife mult be taken on belief. He was happy to bear the moft fincere teflimony to the great merits of his Hon. Friend ( Mr. Addington) he appealed to thofe Members who Iia4 the honour of being acquainted with Mr. Addington, for hischaradltr of ability, and every qualification neceflarytofill the chair witi honour; but without appealing to their perfonal and private knowledge, he could rely on his publick conduft, and on the principles he had fhewn in fupport of the Conftitution on a recent occafion. He concluded by refting the caufe of Mr. Addington on the memory, the honour, and impartiality of ths Houfe. Mr. Burke fupported the nomination of Sir Gilbert Elliot; he had watched him from his dawning youth to his ripened manhood, and had feea a frequent difplay of the greateft talents. The Right Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Pitt) was right in faying that much of the ability of the hon. Baronet he muft take on belief, for he had not the honour of a feat in that Houfe, on the early display of the hon. Baronet's abilities. Mr. Burke faid the chair of that Houfe was once looked up to as an objeCt of honeft and grave ambition, and confidered too important to be lightly conferred; and never v/ as given without the tell of experience ; the cafe was, however, now altered; it was confidered merely as a place of probation, not as the effeCt . of probation; it was made a fort of a baiting place, an inn to change horfes to drive on to higher honours; one day a traveller arrived, and being accomodated, fays, " I thank you for rny fituation;"— the next day he is gone, with, " I thank you for your fupport, good by- to- ye, I'm o f f . " In this manner had they been treated ; they were become a fuccejfton houfe, a hot- bed, in which official honours were forced to Maturity, their confequence was deftroyed, and the dfgnity of the chair lowered. Mr. Martin faid, underftanding the merits of both Gentlemen to be great, he lhould give his vote for the hon. Baronet, as poffeffing the greateft ' experience. Mr. Careiv knowing the ability of Mr. Addington for many years,' declared his intention to give him his vote. The Queftion being put, the Houfe divided, For Mr. Addington, — Sir G. Elliot, — Majority for Mr. Addington The Houfe immediately adjourned. Tuefday, June 9. T H E Houfe went up to the Lords at three o'clock to prefent their Speaker to his Mrjeily, who gracioufly approved their choice. The Speaker being returned, a new writ was ordered to be iffited for the election of a Member for Bucks, vacant by the promotion of Mr. Grenville. C A L L cf the HOUSE. On the motion of Mr. Alderman Newnham, the order of the day for calling over the Houfe was difcharged, and the Houfe ordered to be called over on that day fortnight. The motion caufed a fhort converfation, in which fpoke Mr. NE-. nham, Mr. Sawbridge, Mr. Wilberforce, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr. Tierney, Lords Penrhyn and Maitland for the order, and Mr. Grey, Mr. Baftard, Mr. Medley, and Mr. Jekyll, againft it. Several publick accounts were received and ordered to lie on the table. A few private Bills were delivered. The Houfe afterwards refolved itfelf into a Committee of the whole Houfe on the Slave- Trade, in which they examined Captain John Knox. Wednefday, June 10. PROCEEDED to the defpatch of feveral private Bills. Received a meffage from the Lords that they would proceed further in the trial of Warren Haftings, Efq. on the Morrow. T H E B U D G E T. The order of the day being read, and the Houfe refolved into a Committee o f t h e whole Houfe on the Ways and Means for the year, Mr. Gilbert in the Chair, The Chancellor of the- Exchequer rofe and with pleafure congratulated the Houfe on the growing produce of the revenue; the refources of the country were, he faid, in the moft flourifhing ftate ; it was, however, from various unforefeen circumftances neceffary to call for the aid of the Houfe to defray the additional increafe on the Supply : The fituation of Europe had rendered it neceflary to- increafe our peace eftablilhment for 215 142 the prefent, and other neceffary expenditures had occafioned the fvvell of the Supply: there were 20,000 feamen employed, which were IQOO more, than were employed Ialt year which made the fuin neceffary £• For the Navy — 2,328,570 The Army was — 1,517,000 Army Extraordinaries 398,000 There was no neceffity he faid for any vote for the vail fum, it being already difcharged by occafional fums which had fallen into the Exchequer, and not carried to the credit account of laft; year. The Sum- for the Ordance was For Convidts — For the different Bonds Deficiency in Land and Malt } ' 1 7 1 3 , 0 00 56,000 15,000 350,000 35,000 Duties, arifing from charges For the works carrying on 7 at Carlton- Houfe J He ftatcd feveral other fums which had been voted for the Plantations, for the Britilh Mufeum, for the deficiency of the Grants of 1788, and for the re- payment, of money advanced in confequence of the addreffes of that Houfe. The whole fums added together made the total amount of The Supply voted £. 5,539,000 To which fum to be provided for was alfo to be added a confiderable fum iffucd for his Majefty's fecret fervice abroad, to the amount © f 191,0001. which was not a lofs to the Country, as it was iffued by way of Loan, repayable by inflalments, with intereft, The two fums therefore added together The Supply Secret Service 5> 539' 0 0° 191,000 Made a total of 5,730,000 The Ways and Means for railing the above fum he propofed to be the ufual fum on Land and MaltDuties — 2,730,000 By Tontine — 1,250,000 On fliort annuities for the fecret fervice — 187,000 From the growing furplus of the consolidated fund 1,570,000 Making 5,737,000 To judge of the ftate of the revenue of the country, he took the produce of the two laft years, as forming in his opinion the fairefl average that could be taken ; the firft having fell fhort, and tlie laft increafed, which incrcafe he attributed to the wine being put under the excife, and to regula tions in the fpirit trade, both which meafures had fucceeded to his moft; fanguine wifhes. By thofe two years taken together it appeared that the whole of their produce in taxes £. was — .12,978,000 Charges thereon — 11,278,000 Leaving a balance of 1,700,000 To this excefs over the charges was to be expetted in favour of the next year 120,0001. from a balance on the affeffed taxes; and from outflanding accounts roo. oool. From the Eaft- lndia Company was alfo to be expe& ed a further film of zoo, oool. being the remaining fum due of the 500,0001. they laft year owed, having difcharged no more than 300,000!. The fum laft year agreed by the Houfe to be due from the Eaft India Company was fubjedted to revifion, the fum would not however by fuch revifion be decreafed, as it appeared fromaccounts lately received that a further fum of 200,& 001. was due from the Comany. He looked alfo to another allele as an additional refource to the revenue, without burthening the country, he meant the Tobacco Trade, in which, at prefent, there exifted the greateft frauds, and afforded the chief fupport to the remains of fmuggling ; he took that opportunity of giving notice . that he fhould in a few days bring in a Bill to put that article under the excife, from which he was confident the greateft advantages would refult.— The Hon. Gentleman then proceeded to ftate the receffity of a lean of i, ooo, oeol. ; he took a general review of the expenditure and income from the year 1786, and declared that no neceffity would have exifted for a loan in the . prefent year, had not fuch circumftances arifen which human forefight could not have reached, and which were not likely to happen again, In the Courfe of thofe vears no loan had been callcd for; the country, on the contrary, had nearly difcharged 4,000,000!. of the National Debt, and had encreafed the expences of its navy to the amount of 500,0001. • Several other great and unexpedled fums had been called for ; the difcharge of the Prince of Wales's Debts, 2 i 6 , o o o l ; an increafe on the Army Expences, & c. & c. in the whole amounting, to about ",, 500,000!. Had tkefe circumftances not occurred, the country would have been enabled to paid the intereft of the prefeht million without a new loan, would have been able to have difcharged the annual million, and anfwered for the lofs of the Shop- Tax, without any additional burthen on the people. The events abroad which had happened, and which were the chief caufes of the encreafe of expence, had at the fame time added glory to the country, and raifed Great Britain to her former pre- eminence in Europe; on the whole, therefore, this country was to be cqn- • fidered in finance in a fituation the moft flourifhing, aijd on the tappy profpedl of future incrcafe, he congratulated the Houfe and the country. T h e mode propofed to raife the money now neceffary was on a principle fimilar to that of the Sinking Fund, namely by Tontine; this mode he chole for two realons, the firft by way of experiment, obferving the general difpofition of people to adventure, and the great plenty of money in the Country; his fecond reafon ivas that by Tontine the prefent aid would be fur'niftied, without adding to the debt of the Country, as the Tontine would pay itfclf oft'. He then ilated the particulars of the Tontine, which wis divided into iix ciaffes, the firft: taking in all under 20 years • of age, the next from 20 to 30, and fo on from 30 to 40, from 40 to 50, from 50 to 60, and b om 60 upwards, allowing to the firft Clafs 41 . per Cent, and fo on in proportion, concluding with 5I. 12S. 6d. , T h e premium given for the above was 2,5001. and the bargain was in favour of the Publick, it having been negotiated under the market price. He computed the intereft to be paid 011 the Tontine at 45,0001. ' And' on the Short Annuities, by which he meant t o raife the Secret Service Money, at 56,000). in the Whole making the neceffary intereft to be provided for to amount to 1 io, oool. To raife that fum he propofed the following N E W TA X E S. On NEWSPAPERS an additional Stamp of one Halfpenny, which would raife 28,000!. An additional duty of Sixpence on each Ad- vertifement, would produce 9000I. O n CARDS a n d D I C E an a d d i t i o n a l d u t y of Sixpence, 9000I. O n t h e PROBATES of WI L L S an additional duty of 20s. for 300I. and under 600I. 30s. for 600I. and fo on in proportion. On LEGACIES, excluding however thofe to Wives, Children, and Grand- Children, an additional duty of 2 ® s, for every tool, above 300I. He calculated that the above augmentation on the Stamp Duties, would produce 64,425!. The next duties he fhould proptfe would fall on the higher Claffes ; for every perfou keeping one Carriage an additional duty of 20s. Two Carriages— 20s. for the firft; for the fecond 2I. Three Carriages— 20s. tke firft; the others 3I. each. On Horfes he propofed the following aelditiona! taxes, excluding thofe pcrfons wko kept but one Horfe. For a fecond Korfe — 5s. Three, four, or five Horfes 7s. 6d. each For fix, and upwards — 16s. each. The whole of which additional duties, added to thofe on the Stamps, would produce 11 i, oool. After a few obfervations on the probability of the taxes propofed bearing light on the poorer claffes of the people, he concluded by movinggeneral refolutions. Mr. Sheridan could fee no occafion to congratulate the Houfe on the ftatement of the finances; 011 . the contrary, the Houfe ought to take into their ferious confederation the neceffity of coming forward after fo many years peace, for any loan at all. He would net trouble the Houfe with many obfervations on this day ; but would conclude with a propofa! to the Right Hon. Gentleman to fuffer the publick accounts to be laid before the Houfe for full and fair confideration, and he pledged himfelf to come forward with rcfolutions thereon. The Chancellor of the Exchequer had no objection to every neceffary paper being laid before the Houfe, and r. as ready to meet the Flon. Gentleman on the fubjett whenever he thought proper. Mr. Fox was of opinion, that the prefent encreafed expenditure would be a permanent one; and believed that the exptnees ^ vould encjteafe it a fal greater degree than the income. Mr. Huffky aliened, that the furplus of the Sinking Fund had ene of its quarters anticipated. Mr. Steele replied, that the Hon. Gentleman was miftaken. Mr. HuJJey again fpoke, and was again replie4 to by Mr. Steele. Mr. Dempfter was determined to oppofe any additional tax being laid on this already too heavily burthened country, and would, if he flood fingly, give his negative. Mr. Rolle wifhed to . know whether any thing was to be done refpedting the Crown Lands ? He faw no objeftion to any of the taxes, except the laft, which he confidered likely to fall heavy on perfons not well able to bear it. The Chancellor of the Exchequer replied, that the Crown Lands were proceeding with ; a fpeedy difpofal could not however be expedted. He did not think the tax on horfes would fall heavy on perfons unable to bear i t ; he had, for the purpofe of avoiding that, excluded perfons keeping one horfe from any additional duty. The Refolutions were then put and agreed to, the Houfe refumed, and the Report ordered to be received tomorrow. Adjourned. F^ rthe U S E of S C H O O L S.

Yefterday the King took a pretty long morning ride on horfeback, and returned to Kew about two o'clock. Yefterday feveral of the Foreign Minifters vifited his Majefty at Kew Palace. Wednefday afternoon their Royal Highneffes the Prince of Wales and Duke of York had an interview wTth the Queen at Kew Palace. The fame day the Duke of Richmond had a private conference with the King in Kew - Gardens.

Mr. Grenyille gave a fort of farewell dinner to his friends at tjjje Pay- Office, which place he quits as fooii as a fuitable town refidence can be fetted up, to make roQm for the Marquis of Graham. Yefterday his Grace the Duke of Leeds received feveral letters at his office, Whitehall, from Jofeph. Ewart, Efq. at Berlin, which he immediately forwarded to the King at Kew Palace.

Letters from Smyrna, dated the 21ft of March, mention, that a very great fcarcity of corn reigns not only there, but through all the country, quite to Conftantinople ; that two thirds of the ground ufually employed for the growth of cotton have been fown with corn, and if the crop fails, the greatcft famine muft enfue. The States- General of France have agreed, that 151 perfons fhould be the number to iorm a Houfc. In the Commons of England 40 are fufficient. This precaution is to preclude the probability of a furprife f r Jm a few of the minority forming aits of government. One of the French King's tra4efmen ( an Eng » lifhman) has taken refHge in this country, merely from the circumitance of having had fent him, a parcel of Madame la Motte's late publication, which was intercepted on its arrival in France. The unfortunate mechanick knew nothing of thparty who fent their.,: nor has he been able to dif* cover it by the utmoft diligence., We learn from Londonderry that the emigrations in that quarter continue to incieafe : In the courfe of laft week, not lefs than four hundred perfons failed from that port, on board the brig Maria, Capt. Forte, and the Keziah, Captaifi Browne, for Wilmington, in America. The Backhoufe, Collinfon, arrived at Liverpool from Grenada, on the 27th ult. Lat. 45. met the heaviell gale he ever experienced, and fhipped a dreadful lea, which came over the veffel's taffrel as high as the mizen- top, which broke full on the fteerage hatchway, fplit it to pieces, and filled the fhip with water between decki broke the lafliings of the cotton bags which were flowed on the quarter deck, carried away the filtering Jar and frame, and all the people on deck ( among whom was the Captain), and drove thcrfl ~ again ft various parts of the ftiip ; the whole watch on deck difafeled ; Second Mate both arms broke, one of the men his thigh broke, and another all his ribs on one fide. Fortunately none of them were wafhed overboard. Tueitfay a very curious experiment was tried, that of proving how far an entire copper veffel would anfwer the purpofe of failing.
