FRANKLYN, Esq. AMERICA. Philadelphia, April 22-. Yesterday morning at ten o'clock, his Excellency the President of the United States left this city, on his journey to New York. His Excellency was accompanied by Charles Thomson, Esq. and Colonel Hum- phreys, formerly Aid- de- Camp to his Excel- lency. Previous to his Excellency's departure, the following address was presented : An Address to tbe President of the United States, from the President and Supreme Executive Coun- cil of Pennsylvania, SIR, THE President and Supreme Executive Coun- cil of Pennsylvania chearfully embrace this inter- resting occasion to congratulate you upon the establishment of the Foederal Constitution, and so felicitate ourselves and our country upon your unanimous appointment to the Presidency of the United States. In reflecting upon the vicissitudes of the late war, in tracing its difficulties, and in contemplat- ing its success, we are uniformly impressed with the extent and magnitude of the services which you have rendered your country ; and by that im- pression we are taught to expert, that the exercise of the same virtues and abilities which have been thus happily employed in the prize of liberty and independence, must be effectually instrumental in securing to your fellow citizens and their posterity, the permanent blessings of a free and efficient Government. And although the history of the revolution will furnish the best evidence of the in- variable attachment of this Commonwealth, to the interests and glory of the union, yet we can- not resist this favourable opportunity of personally assuring you, that in every measure which tends to advance the national character, you may rely on the zealous co- operation of the executive au- thority of Pennsylvania. In discharging the duties of your present impor- tant station, it must, Sir, be a never- failing source of consolation and support, that the unbounded love and confidence of the people, will produce a favourable construction of all your actions, and will contribute to the harmony and success of your Administration. For we know, that eventu- ally your happiness depends upon the happiness of your country; and we believe that in wishing an adequate execution of your intentions and de- signs, we comprehend all that is necessary to both. Uniting with our sister States in the admiration of those motives, which, at this interesting aera of our affairs, have induced you again to relinquish the enjoyment of domestic peace, for a conspicuous and laborious participation in the cares and toils of public life, we fervently pray for the preserva- tion of your health,, and we confidently hope that the consummation of a patriot's wishes— the glory and felicity of your country, will crown the period of a long and illustrious existence, and prepare you for the enjoyment of an everlasting reward. THOMAS MIFFLIN. Council Chamber. To which the President of the United States was pleased to return the following answer: to the President and Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania. GENTLEMEN, I RECEIVE, with great satisfaction, the affection- ate congratulations of the President and Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania, on my ap- pointment to the Presidency of the United States. If under favour of the Divine Providence, and with the assistance of my fellow citizens, it was my fortune to have been in any degree instru mental in vindicating the liberty and confirming the independence of my country, I now find a full compensation for my fervices, in a belief that those blessings will be permanently secured by the establishment of a free and efficient Government. And you will permit me to say, on this occasion, that as nothing could add to the evidence I had formerly received, of the invariable attachment ot your Commonwealth to the interests and honour of the union, so nothing could have been more agreeable to me, at this time, than the assurances you have given me of the zealous co- operation of its executive authority, in facilitating the accom- plishment of the great objects which are commit- ted to my charge. While I feel my sensibility strongly excited by the expressions of affeCtion and promises of sup- port, which I every where meet with from my countrymen, I entertain a consolatory hope that the purity of my intentions, and the persever- ance of my endeavours to promote the happiness of my country, will atone for any of the sligh- ter defects which may be discovered in my admi- nistration. for whatever may be the issue of our public measures, or however I may err in opinion, I trust it will be believed that I could not have been actuated by any interests, separate from those of my country. Suffer me, Gentlemen, to conclude by assur- ing you, that I am well pleased with the justice you have done to the motives from which I have acted, and by thanking you for the tender con- cern you have been pleased to manifest for my per- sonal felicity. GEORGE WASHINGTON. [ Addresses were likewise presented from the Mayor, Recorder, Aldermen, and Common- Council of the City of Philadelphia ; from the Judges of the Supreme Court of the State of Pennsylvania ; from the Trustees and Faculty of the University of the State of Pennsylvania ; and from the State Society of the Cincinnati, in Pennsylvania ; to all of which his Excellency was pleased to return similar answers.] English Parliament. HOUSE OF LORDS. Monday, June 19. CROMFORD CANAL BILL. Counsel were again heard, and several witnesses examined, after which, the further consideration was adjourned to Friday. MOTION FOR PAPERS. Lord Rawdon moved for a number of the public accounts, similar to those which have been ordered to the House of Commons, on the motion of Mr. Sheridan. His Lordship mention- ed this circumstance to the House, merely to shew that a compliance with his motion, could not occasion much trouble as the accounts were al- ready made out. The Chancellor put the question separately on each, and they were ordered accordingly. Several Road and Canal bills were brought . up from the Commons, and the House adjourned at seven o'clock, to Wednesday, HOUSE OF COMMONS. COUNTY ELECTION BILL. The County Election Bill was read a third time, passed and carried by Captain Berkley to the Lords for their concurrence. ARABIN'S DIVORCE BILL. The Bill for separating William John Arabin and Henrietta Molineux his Wife, a Vinculo Matrimonii, and for empowering the parties to marry again, was read a second time, and was ordered to be committed for to- morrow se'nnight. A Petition was presented from Colonel Arabin stating, that his Agents has called at a great variety of places in town, where Mrs. Arabin was said to lodge, for the purpose of serving her with a Copy of this Bill, now depending in Parliament, that the result of their inquiries was, that they found she had left the kingdom, and was in Italy. The Prayer of the Petition therefore was, that that the service of the present Bill on Mrs. Ara- bin's Proctor, might be esteemed good service. Mr. Johnston, Clerk to Mr. Graham, Solicitor of Lincoln's Inn, swore to the truth of the contents of the Petition. The question was then put, that service on Mrs. Arabin's Proctor might be held good service, which was carried. TOBACCO BILL. Mr. Pitt brought in his Bill for repealing the duties on Tobacco, and Snuff, and for granting new duties in lieu thereof: This Bill was read a first time, was ordered to be printed, to be read a second time 011 Wednesday, and is to be com- mitted on Thursday. Sir W. Lewes opposed the Bill,. The Speaker said, this was not the time to make objections. LOTTERY BILL. The Report of the Lottery Bill was read a first and second time, and agreed to. LIGHT HOUSES; Mr. Dempster moved, that a Committee be ap- pointed to consider the 26th and 28th of the pre- sent King, directing certain Light Houses to be ereCted in the farther parts of Great Britain, to enquire how far the provisions of the said act have been carried into execution, and report the same to the House.— Agreed to. COMMITTEE. The House went into a Committee to consider an act for granting certain duties to his Majesty on Wines, Spirits, Wash, & c. in Scotland. Mr. Rose moved for leave to bring in a Bill for amending and discontinuing the former act, See. for granting to his Majesty other duties in lieu thereof,— Agreed to. MONEY BILL. The Bill for raising a duty of money by Exche- quer Bills, was read a third time, passed, and carried to the Lords. CARRIAGE BILL. The Bill for granting his Majesty an additional duty on Carriages, was read a second time, and ordered to be committed for Wednesday- The order of the day for the House to resolve itself into a Committee on the Indemnity Bill, was put off till this day. BRITISH FISHERIES. The House resolved itself into a Committee of the whole House on the British Fisheries. - Mr. Dempster wished with the approbation of the Committee to make some alterations in two laws passed in the 25th and 26th of his present Majesty, for the encouragement of the Fisheries of Great Britain. Mr. Dempster proposed that leave be given to bring Cod, Ling, and other White Fish to the home market, free of salt duty. As the law now stood, fishing vessels were obli- ged to be out at sea three months. He wished that fishing vessels might be allowed to return to port as soon as they were loaded without staying that time. If this were the case, many more fish would be procured, and great expence saved. According to the present law, bounties are only given to the owners of vessels who go to the fish- eries themselves. He conceived that nothing could be more discouraging to these fisheries than this circumstance. He therefore proposed that the bounty should be given to fishers whether they were proprietors of vessels or had only hired them. By the present laws every vessel that went to the fisheries must clear out at the ports to which they belonged, which was attended with great ex- pence. He therefore proposed that fishing vessels might clear out from any port of Great Britain. When cod were sent from Scotland to England, and then exported, the bounty was not allowed. He proposed that it should. Mr. Dempster observed that 2500 able bodied seamen were employed in these fisheries, and that they were obliged to go through a great many ceremonies before they could dispose of their fish; from which he thought they had been exempted. Mr. Dempster then moved for leave to bring in a bill for explaining and amending the 25th and 26th of the present King. The Marquis of Graham said the regulations which had now been stated by the Hon. Member were rather intricate. He did not rise to oppose the bringing in of the bill, but he would not pledge himself to all the provisions in their full extent. Mr. Pitt was of the same opinion. He rather doubted with regard to the propriety of some of these regulations. The Hon. Member wished to extend bounties to all persons indiscriminately. Now he thought he could not regularly more for leave to bring in a bill till the Committee had agreed to these resolutions, and therefore he ad- vised him to withdraw his motion, and appoint a Committee to consider the resolutions. Mr. Dempster said he was much obliged to the noble Marquis and the Right Hon. Gentleman, and fixed on this day to go into this Committee. STREET BILL. Sir William Dolben gave notice, that he should move for leave to bring in a Bill for regulating the streets at night, and for preventing them from being infected with disorderly women. The House next went into the Slave Trade, Sir William Dolben in the Chair. Counsel were then called to the Bar, and evi- dence examined. Adjourned. — ....... .,- FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. Palermo, May 3. The Sicilians, under the aufpices of their prefent Monarch, begin to turn their views to mercantile affairs and commercial improvements. For attaining thefe purpofes, Don Jofeph Giocni, oF the Dukes of Angid, after having rendered himfelf jullly celebrated by cftablifhirig a profeffoifliip for. ethics and na- tural jurifprudence, as alfo feveral new and ufe- lul manufactures, has now directed his views to a nautical fchool. Tlie conftitution, the plan of education, and the choice of inftruCtors, do him the higheft honour. The orphans and poor children of pilots and ( hipwrights, will be ad- mitted into it, and fup'ported at the expence of the foundc. Fienna, June 12. Field- Marflial Laudolin has fent ad' ice, under date the 23d of May, that a large body of Turks, under the command of two • Pachas, attacked the Auftrians ported in the Block- Houfc at Bobera, which they furrounded. That the officer and his men, taking their can- non, found means to retire into the entrench- ments, with a Captain and 200 men who were polled at another place. The Turks, however, followed and furrounded them again., keeping up a furious fire for twelve hours, with cannon and grenades, which the Auf- trians returned. At length they were fummoned to furrender; but this they refufed; and at night the Turks left off firing, but kept a large " fire lighted. The Auftrian officer, knowing he had no hopes of fuccour, under favour of the night evacuated the entrenchments, marching through part of the enemy, without lofing a man. The Turks had 600 killed and 1 ; o wounded. The Auftrians had 224 killed and wounded in this and the former attacks; and the officers thought to be among the latter, appear to be killed. General Wallifch writes farther, under date the 26th of May, ( hat the enemy having got a rein- forcement of 2000 men, on the 27th a body of , tcu thoufand of them, headed by two Pachas, with foi( r pieces of cannon, advanced to Dobro- zello, and drove in the advanced ports, which confided of 1500 men and fix pieces of cannon. The Turks made vine furious attacks in ten hours, endeavouring to rtorm the place ; but the Auf- trians bore the charge fo well, that they were re- pulfed every time with great lofs ; and were at laft obliged to delift and retreat. In this affair the Auflrians had 183 killed and wounded. Six officers were amongrt the former. The*' f urks had boo killed, and 200 wounded ; among the latter is one of the Pachas. The enemy thus finding their attempts to make an iticurfion into Croatia t'ruitlefs—- on the 28th, in the evening, theirwholearmy inarched toVakup, Where they burnt all ihe haufes of thofe Turks, who had fotmerly put themlelves under the Em- ptor's protection. IVai/ a- w, May 31. By letters from Lemberg of the 25th of May we learn, that the left wing of the Imperial army, commanded by Prince Co-' bourg, already occupies a ( pace of 50 leagues on the enemy's territory. Copenhagen, June 6. One of the ( hips of the line belonging 10 the Ruffian fleet in our port has taken a valuable prize, i'econded by the brig Mercury. The ( hip having failed from the Cat- tegat, met a Swedifli frigate of 44 guns, which had juft left Gottenburgh, and having chaced her towards the waters of Not way, a fudden calm came on, which prevented the ( hips from ma- noeuvring ; in this fit u at ion the brig Mercury came up, and it was to her that the frigate ( truck, in prefcnce of the fhip of the line, and the brig conduced the prize into Lagkull, near Chriftiana. Hermanjladt, May 20. One of our fpies ha- ving by different fineffes obtained a paffport from Prince Maurogeni, which enabled him to go all through- Wallachia, affures us there are 40,000 Turks and Tartars near Grind, waiting for the Ruffians or our troops. From the Mefelle, June 7. In the night of the 3d a dreadful inundation did confiderable damage in the Duchy of Veldentz, as far as Traarbach ; the rain was violent beyond defcription, and fe- vcral { mart fliocks of an earthquake were felt; the ftieams overflowed their banks, and the tor- rents fwept away trees, houfes, bridges, and, in fliort, every thing that was in the way. All this happened in the middle of the night, which added to its horror, and the fcene which day- break ( hewed was tiuly Clocking ; houfes and walls fwept awav or funk into the ground ; whole orchards and vineyards, fomc entirely deftroyed, and others removed r> a diftance from their ori- ginal lituation, yet placed as firmly as if they had grown there. Frankfort, June 13. The Emprefs of Ruffia having abolilhed all the fmall duties laid on the interior part of the country, and which were prejudicial to the merchants, the latter, to ( hew their gratitude, have prefentcd her Majerty with a diamond of 56 carats weight, worth 54,000 roubles, upon a gold plate, and half a million of roubles upon three lilver p'. ates : they have alio offered to pay two roubles per head every year during the war. Their number is 211,000. Hamburgh, June 12. The alteration in the price of corn, which it was fuppofed would have taken place upon the change made by the Ruf- fians in their march through Poland, has hap- pened, and that article has fallen in price in Vol- hynia, the Ukraine, and Podolia. Genoa, May 3c. His Excellency Baron Wr an- gel, Who has been in this capital fomc time in tHe character of Minirter Plenipotentiary and Envoy Extraordinary from his Swedilh Majerty to the Courts and States of Italy, has received the ufual compliments by a deputation of four fenator?, accompanied by the mailer of ths cere- monies. Hague, June 18. We learn from Nimeguen, that the Waters of the Waal and the Rhine have i'o overflowed their banks its to inundate a large traCt of country, and they have been obliged to take the cattle out of the paftures. The damage done hy thefe inundations muft be very great, but the full extent of it is not yet known. LONDON TUESDAY, JUNE 23. Yesterday morning his Majesty sent a messen- ger from Windsor, with orders to summon a Council to meet this day ; when the Recorder of London will make his Report of the ConviCts under sentence of death in Newgate. Yesterday the Duke of CLARENCE gave a grand dinner to several Naval and Military Officers, at his apartments at St. James's. Yesterday Mr. GRENVILLE dispatched a mes- senger with letters to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. Yesterday 3 grand dinner was given at Lady JERSEY'S to the Duke of BEDFORD and all the Russell family. The marriage of the beautiful Lady C. VIL- LIERS with Lord WILLIAM RUSSELL will take place in a few days. His Excellency the FRENCH AMBASSADOR will set out next week with the Marchioness de la LUZERNE, his neice, on a tour through some of the distant counties in England. Sir W. WILLIAM WYNNE, is said to have again relapsed. It is said that the MARQUIS of TICHFIELD'S hasty departure to Paris, was owing to a violent passion conceived for the future LADY RUSSEL, which the Duke of PORTLAND did not altogether approve. A DISSOLUTION of Parliament will certainly not be so speedy as many of the daily prints give out. We are very confident that it is an event yet at some distance. Should the EMPERER continue to linger much longer, it is highly probable that the Election of KING of tht ROMANS will take place before his death. Preparations are already making at Ratis- bon for the occasion. But the probability is greater that the Emperor will not survive so long. Although the Election will certainly be con- tested, it is generally believed that the ARCH- DUKE of TUSCANY will be the person eleCted. The laft Mail from Ireland mentions, that the Marquis of Buckingham is recovering but slowly, and that there is some idea of his Excellency go- ing for a short time to Bath. The Cromford Canal Bill, which assembled such a number of Peers yesterday in Palace Yard is not a Political Party matter— it is a private interest dispute in which the public benefit is an argument 0n both sides. Private letters from FRANCE, by yesterday's mail, furnish us with very important intelligence of the issue of the late violent proceedings among the three orders of the STATES GENERAL. The Tiers Etat, or Third Estate, has at length triumphed, and on Thursday last formed itself as the national assembly of the COMMONS of FRANCE; a few days previous thereto, several Members of the Nobility and Clergy went over to the third estate, particularly his Royal High- ness the Duke of ORLEANS, who was followed by many others. The first objeCt of their deliberations were the Finances, and they immediately repealed all the Taxes of the country, and created them a- fresh, to continue as long as the States General should fit. This was done to shew their independance and power. They next took into consideration the public debt, and placed the creditors of the state under the protection of the honour and loyalty of the nation at large. This resolution has caused the most universal joy throughout Paris, as well as in the Provinces. Trial by Jury seems to be a grand desideratum with the French nation, and, indeed, it should be so with every country, where the love of freedom and justice is a predominant passion. Infallibility is not pertaining to any of the race of mankind, and even in judgment by Jury, mistakes may be fre- quently committed. The addition of twelve men, however, to the Judge, must be of the utmost con- sequence, and every friend to human liberty must with that form of adjudication established in all parts of the world. A Judge may be generally upright and just, and yet his private attachments or enmities may insensibly prevail over his con- duct. A barrier being thus placed, the evil may in a great measure be removed, while the Judge in every decision is exonerated from censure. The termination of the disputes in FRANCE will be of the utmost consequence to Great Britain. The Commons have guaranteed to fund and pro- vide for the national debt, which being done, the nation will be unincumbered, and ready for hostilities whenever the people may think fit. Their influence will then be become so extensive, that the KING will find it expedient to obey their wishes whenever called on. It may be said with truth, that singers, fidlers, and aCtors, meet with too great encouragement in this country. It is, however, much the same in others, where they cannot so well afford it. At Vienna, tliere is a more Superb Opera than in London ; and the departure of Le Picq and Rossi, for Petersburgh, shews that even the Russians can outbid our Nobility. The empress once complained of this expence, and of the enormous salaries given to the first- rate singers— observing, that Signora Gabrielli re- ceived more than one of her Field- Marshals— to which the singer made his humorous retort, " If her Majesty did not chuse to give her more than the appointment of her Field- Marshals, she would return home, and her Majesty might employ the Marshals to sing in her stead." The Right Honourable WILLIAM WYNDHAM GRENVILLE is re- eleCted for Buckinghamshire, without opposition. A stagnation of trade has been experienced at Liverpool.— The merchants complain, and many are determined, should Mr. Wilberforce suc- ceed in the objeCt of his bill, to emigrate to France. Last Sunday St. George's Church, at Newtown Pery, co. Limerick, so called in honour of his present Majesty, was opened the first time for di- vine service.— The church is light and elegant, of an oblong form; the eastern window a beautiful antique of the thirteenth century, preserved and sent there by Lady Hartstonge, from the church of the old Franciscan Convent in St. Francis's Abbey. WESTMINSTER COMMITTEE. THE RESOLUTIONS entered into on Thursday, by the Westminster Committee, afforded but a short pleasure to Opposition for they all fell to the ground yesterday, and the business is to go on regularly until all the bad votes are struck off, and the Member that ought to have been returned, is seated constitutionally. Mr. Partridge, 0n the part of Lord Hood, stated, in a short but nervous manner, that his Lordship could not think of withdrawing his Petition, and therefore meant to go on until the merits of the Election were fully decided. Much had been done towards this desirable purpose, and so clear was the prospect of victory— so fully satisfied was his noble Client that the majority of of legal votes would be established in his favour that to doubt the fact, would be to suspect that which must soon appear to the Committee, " an established truth. Upon these substantial grounds, his Lordfliip could by no means assent to with- draw his Petition. Mr. Pultney said that the Committee never in- tended to persuade the noble Lord to withdraw his petition— they had formed their judgment merely on what was past, and not on what was to come ; and offered their opinion accordingly. If the noble Lord, who undoubtedly was the best judge of what he had to offer, saw that the merits of his case promised success, he was right to pur- sue it, and of course the Committee would fit to hear and determine it.

The arrival of the MANSHIP produced a very full Court of Directors yesterday, to hear the dispatches read, which were extremely volumi- nous, nor did it break up till seven in the even- ing. The packets containing letters to individuals were received early in the morning, and are ex- pected to be delivered out from the General Port Office in the couse of this day. Our private advices confirm the pleasing in- telligence we gave in our Paper of yesterday re- specting the general tranquility of the CAR- NATIC. The RAJAH of TRAVENCORE has agreed to pay an annual subsidy to the Company, in con- sequence of their stationing two regiments to de- fend his country from the invasions of mauraudcrs. The TYRANT Tippo— taken up too much with his new possessions to wage an unsuccessful war with troops, though not so numerous, yet far more brave and skilful than his own— melts a " little of his FLINT"— and holds out, if not friendly, at least neutral colours to the Govern- ment of Madras. Mr. MAUNSELL— the Junior Member of Council, is expected home shortly in an Imperial ship— as is PAUL BENFIELD, who quits Fort St. George, by a similar conveyence, his health not permitting a longer residence there. Mr. JOHN HOLLAND the present Governor of Madras, it is imagined, will soon be " pushed from his stool" by a successor from England, the present system of domestic politics not allowing a CIVIL servant, however high his pretensions, to keep possession of the Asiatic Chair. Lady CAMPBELL has received the thanks of the Madras Government, for her exertions in favour of the Asylum for Female Orphans, which has succeeded beyond the most sanguine expecta- tions of the benevolent founders. Encouraged by its success, an establishment for MALE Orphans has been started, and we are happy to add, promises to be crowned with all the success the liberality and philanthrophy of the undertak- ing deserves. On Friday morning a duel was fought on Ken- nington Common, in Surry, between a Mr. TONGUE and a Mr. PATTERSON. It originated in a drunken quarrel in the street, and though Mr, T. who gave the insult, offered to make any apology, yet such Was the idea of modern honour, that n0 mediation but that which ha- zarded life, was deemed sufficicnt. The princi- pals and the seconds, therefore, met, and to avoid as much as possible any lucky escape from the ball, the distance was settled at seven yards, so that with the length of the arm, added to that of the pistol, the muzzles were not above four yards asunder. In this position the word fire was given, which did not however happen for a full minute afterwards, when Mr. Tongue re- ceived his antagonist's ball under the bone of the right hip, and it went with such force, and pe- netrated so deep in the thigh, that the probe has not been able to find it. Mr. Tongue's second desired him to fire, but he declined it, saying, that he gave the insult, was sorry for it, and of course had no animosity against Mr. Patterson. Every possible care has been taken of the wounded gentleman, but the expectations of recovery are very doubtful.— Mr. Tongue is an officer in the 60th regiment of foot; Mr. Patterson has some military employment in the India Company's service. The quarrel between Mr. ASTON and Mr. SUMNER originated at the Bush Inn at Staines, after Ascot races on Saturday. The former be- ing in company with Lord Tyrconnel and Lord Delaval in a room up stairs, saw two ladies at the window, who were with Mr. S. in a room below. Mr. A. nodded to one of them, and asked her whether she would have an orange : the Lady smiling, Mr. A. threw one at her. Mr. S. then asked Who the rascal was who threw it, and offered five guineas to know. Mr. A. jocosely said, give me ten, and I'll tell you. He then said, he was the per- son, on which Mr. S. told him he was a d—'— d fcoundrel. Mr. A. then went down stairs, and struck Mr, S. and gave hiin a black eye. A chal- lenge was the consequence, the issue of which the public already know. On Saturday morning, between the hours of eleven and twelve, as a lady, who was attended by a servant, in a phaeton, was driving between Hampstead and Southgate, she was stopped by a highwayman, near Coney- Hatch Wood, and robbed of her watch and money. LAW INTELLIGENCE. CHANCERY, MONDAY, JUNE 22. THE Assignees of GIBSON and JoHNson some time ago presented a Petition to this Court, praying permission to prove negotiable Paper to the amount of 7000I. under the Commission against BONus and PADMORE. The facts of the case appeared to be these Bonus and Padmore had placed paper security, of various kinds and descriptions, in the hands of Gibson and Johnson, as collateral securities to them for having accepted Bills to the amount of 4000I. at one quarter per cent, drawn by Bonus and Padmore. When Bonus and Co. failed, Gib- son and Co. had only paid so much of their ac- ceptances as amounted to 1,7001. ; and the re- mainder, on the failure of Gibson and Co. were proved by the respective holders, under their Estates; and on these proofs a dividend had ac- tually been made. The assignees of the estate of Bonus and Pad- more resisted the prayer of this Petition, and con- tended, 1st, That no part of this debt could be proVed, because it was founded on a corrupt contract on the part of Gibson and Johnson, to take more than the legal interest on the monies they had advanced, under colour of five shillings per cent, for commission. 2dly, That they ought not to be admitted to prove more than the real balance due to them, viz. 1,7001. because these bills were only a multiplied security for the same debt. 3dly, That they could not prove what had been paid in dividends by the estate of Gibson and Co. because such payments were made subsequent to the bankruptcy, and therefore formed no part of any legal debt ex- isting at the time the Commission issued. These points were conceived to involve consi- derations of such magnitude and importance, that the matter was ordered to stand over for further consideration. WESTMINSTER- HALL. Before LORD KENYON. Tuesday, June 13. JOHNSON V. WOOD. This was an aCtion on the custom of merchants, brought by the plaintiff as the indorsee of an in- land bill of Exchange, against the defendant as acceptor. The bill was drawn by one Wilkinson, and made payable one month after the gth of August, 1788. It appeared in evidence, that the drawer having persuaded the defendant to accept the bill, for the purposes of accommodation, had paid it away to a Mr. Child, who had indorsed it, and paid it away to another person: that the accep- tor, not having received any consideration, as he pretended, had refused to pay it when it be- came due : that it was protested for non- payment, and returned by the holder to Mr. Child, the last indorser, who erased his indorsement, and return- ed it to the original payer and drawer, Wiskinson. Wilkinson satisfied Mr. Child, but desired that he would keep the bill for a few days, and endea- vour to procure payment for it of Wood. He did so ; but finding all endeavours for this purpose ' fruitless, he returned it at the end of four days after it had become due, to Wilkinson ; no other indorsemcnt except Wilkinson's, being then on the bill. Some months after this transaCtion, the bill was transferred to the present plaintiff, Johnson ; who brought an aCtion against Wood the acceptor, to recover its value. Wood filed a bill of disco- very in equity against Wilkinson the drawer, and Johnson, the present indorsee. Johnson, by his answer, confessed that at the time the bill came into his hands, he knew it to be a bad bill, but that he took it on the credit of the drawer Wil- kinson swore that the defendant had accepted it for goods sold and delivered. Upon this case, the counsel for the defendant submitted to the court, that Johnson's having received the bill after it was due, with full notice by the protest, that it had been dishonOured, was a circumstance which so strongly implied that the transfer was fraudulent, that it was impossi- blc for him to recover without proving that he had paid a full and valuable consideraiion for it and the case of Holt v. Adye, at Guildhall, was cited to support this position : But Lord KENYON said, that he conceived the rule of law, upon such a case, made it incumbent on the defendant to prove that the transaCtion, be- tween the plaintiff and the person from whom he received the bill was not, bona fidet fraudulent ; for that Johnson was at liberty to proteCt him- self under Wilkinson's title; and that until Wilkinson's title was impeached, it was not ne- cessary to enquire whether the plaintiff had given value for it or not; but if Wilkinson had not given value for if, it might be impeachable in the hands of Johnson, though he had given at full consideration. Another objection was also mentioned, viz. That the declaration had averred, that Wilkinson afterwards, and before the time limited for the payment of the said bill, had indorsed it to John- son ; but this was held to be an immaterial aver- ment, and therefore the variance upon the evi- dence was irrelevant. VERE and Co. against HARRIS. This was a motion for a new trial, ( See the Mail of June 16.) Mr. Bower was proceeding to shew cause against this rule, when Mr. Justice Buller wished to hear the other side. Mr. Erskine said, in looking into this case, he confessed himfelf considerably pressed how to sup- port this rule. He ought to have had Madar at the trial to prove that which was only presumed. He could have told them the indorsement on this bill was not his, and that he had no concern in A conncCtion with it; and this would have had the same effeCt as if his name had not bcen upon bill at all,-—— Rule discharged.

Letters Patent have passed under the Great Seal of this kingdom, for translating the Right Reverend Doctor Eusby Cleaver, Bishop of Cork and Ross, to the United Bishopricks of Leighlin and Ferns, vacant by the death of the Right Reverend Doctor William Preston. ' Letters Patent have also been passed for pro- meting the Reverend William Forster, A. M. to the United Bishopricks of Cork and Ross. Stockholm, June 5. A corps of about 1100 Russians having assembled at a village called Ruskiala, on the borders of the Province of Ca- relia, waiting only for the arrival of a sufficient number of pieces of ordnance to make an irrup- tion into that Province, Major Gripenberg, who was posted in the neighbourhood with a battalion of the regiment ot Tavastehus and four cannon, resolved to attack the enemy on the 17th ult. though his whole force consisted only of about 250 men. On their approach the Swedes were so fortunate as immediately to dismount some field pieces, with which the Russians disputed the en- trance of the village, and soon after' the Powder Magazine of the enemy blew up, by which a great number of them perished. The battle then com- menced, and continued with great obstinacy for upwards of three hours. Major Gripenberg computes the loss of the enemy at 400 killed, and a considerable number wounded. He quitted the field, however though he had only 17 killed and 30 wounded The Russians also after the ac- tion evacuated Ruskiala, and retreated to Sorda- walla. The Swedes fired with red hot shot, being informed that the Russians had deposited their powder in one of the adjoining Houses. Ma- jor Gripsnberg has been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant- Colonel, every officer under his command has been advanced one degree, and a reward of a Swedish ducat is ordered to be given to each private soldier. The Port of Helsingtors is blocked up by a Rus- sian squadron. On Tuesday night last his Swedish Majesty set out for Finland. Warsaw, June 6. The accounts received here of the Turkish force in the Black Sea make it amount to 16 ships of the line, and 21 frigates ; in all 121 sail, including bomb- ketches, gun- boats, & c. Vienna, June 10. On Sunday last the Emperor had a return of his fever, but he is this morning rather better. Advice has been received from Croatia, that the Turks have been rcpulsed in a second irruption which they had attempted to make into the Licca, in the Austrian territory, and that, after this de- feat, the Austrians had taken a redoubt, with four iron cannons. In the evening of the 28th ult. the Turks retreated towards Vakup. The last accounts from Moldavia state, that the Prince of Saxe- Cobourg, with the army under his command, had reached Bakun ; that the Russians were posted in the environs of Gallacz ; that a considerable number of Turks were assembled near Fockschan, and that the Grand Vizir had arrived on the Banks of the Danube, opposite to Ismail. Ostend, Jnne 20. An Imperial Ordinance was published on the 18th instant, by which all the concessions and privileges granted or confirmed by the Emperor to the province of Brabant, as well as the whole content's of the Joyeuse Entree, are declared to be revoked and annulled ; and a Su- preme Council is establitlicd at Malines, in lieu of the Provincial Council of Brabant, which is abolished.

All strangers were for a considerable time ex- cluded from the gallery, on account of the call of the House. We understand that Mr, Alderman Newnham moved, in a very full House, that the order for going farther into the consideration of the Slave Trade be discharged. This motion was seconded by Mr. Hussey. Mr. Wilberforce and Mr, Pitt delivered their sentiments upon it, and Mr. Marsham was speaking when we entered the gallery. He hoped this subject would be dis- cussed fairly and fully, that every species of evi- dence would be heard on both sides, and that the Gentlemen of the West Indies might have an op- portunity of shewing that they were possessed of as much humanity, as any other body of men in the nation. Mr. Rolle was likewise of opinion that this important subject should be most maturely con- sidered, that nothing should be done upon it rash- ly or hastily, but that the evidence ought to be heard fully on both sides. There was another thing which he conceived would be proper to be done, and that was to learn what were the ideas of other nations upon this subject, and whether they meant to abolish this trade. The Speaker then put the question, that the order for going further into the consideration of the Slave Trade, be discharged, which was agreed to. Mr. Alderman Newnham next moved, that the petitions presented against the Slave Trade, be taken further into consideration early in the next session of Parliament, which was likewise agreed to. BILL FOR REGULATING THE MIDDLE PASSAGE. Mr. Gascoyne said as the Hon. Baronet ( Sir Wm. Dolben) had mentioned on a former day his intention of moving for continuing the bill for regulating the transportation of Slaves from A- frica to America, he conceived it would not be improper for him to ask the Hon. Baronet whe- ther he meant to make any alterations in that bill or whether he meant to content himself with having the Bill continued in the State in which it passed last year: He said if any new re- gulations were proposed, he should be under the necessity of keeping a number of his very respect- able constituents in town, who had been detained here at a very great expence to a public body, and with great private inconvenience to them- selves. If the bill was to be renewed in its for- mer State, their stay in town he conceived would be unnecessary.. Sir William Dolben said, he was extremely ready to give the Honourable Gentleman every infor- mation on this subject. He undoubtedly meant to make a number of alterations in his Bill; these alterations, however, were not very material. Sir William then moved for leave to bring in a Bill for continuing and amending the Act of last Session, for regulating the manner in which Slaves are to be transported from Africa to America, which was agreed to. Lord Penrhyn begged the Hon. Baronet would mention to the House the nature of these altera- tions. Sir William Dolben said, he conceived it would be premature to give any farther explanation at present, but he was very ready to inform the noble Lord by himself what these alterations were. CALL OF THE HOUSE. On the motion of Mr. Alderman Newnham, the Call of the House was dischargcd. HANOVER SQUARE POOR BILL. The Bill for the better relief of the Poor, & c. of the Parish of St. George, Hanover Square, was read a third time, and carried by Mr. Jer- voise to the Lords for their concurrence. INDEMNITY BILL. The House went through a Committee on the Indemnity Bill, Sir Joseph Mawbey in the Chair. The Report to be received to- morrow. GARDEN BILL. The House went into a Committee on the Garden Bill, Sir Joseph Mawbey in the Chair, and after fome conversation between the Attor- ney General, Mr. Hawkins Brown, Mr. Hussey, See. whether those who transgressed the provisions of this act should be liable to transportation ; it was agreed, 0n account of the thinness of the House to report progress, and that the House should to- morrow, ( this day,) again resolve itself into a Committee of the whole House on this Bill. The Annuity Bill, the British Fisheries, & c, were like- wise put off till to- morrow ( this day.) Adjourned; JUNE 24. To morrow THEIR MAJESTIES and the PRINCESSES will set off with their attendants from the Queen's Lodge Windsor, to his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester's seat, Hamp- shire, on their way to Weymouth. LINDHURST LODGE, to which the Royal Family first proceed, is exactly half way between Windsor and Weymouth. WINCHESTER is extremely impatient to see the KING; on his route to LYNDHURST, Yesterday his Royal Highness the Prince of WALES took an airing in his phaeton, and in the evening gave a dinner to several Nobility at Carl- ton House, His ROYAL HIGHNESS made a great figure in the event of Saturday's sport at Ascot,. and his friends may thence imagine his treasurer is count- ing back the sums this amusement has cost him ; we are, however, pretty sure such royal and ho- nourable sportsmen are in the situations of many who gain their law- suits— losers into the bargain. The Duke of YORK is said to have been among the successful betters at Ascot. Four thousand pounds are reported to be his winnings. The three PRINCES intend to visit York this summer ; they are to be at Brighton the latter end of this week. There is not much probability of the PRIN- CESS ROYAL'S houshold being established. Her Royal Highness having at all times expressed the sincerest wish to be near her Royal Parents; a filial desire, which has not been supplanted since the KING'S recovery, Yesterday morning at half past eleven o'clock, his Majesty came home from Windsor Lodge to Kew Palace, in order to be present at the Cabinet Council, which was held at one o'clock ; it was attended by their Royal Highnesses the Dukes of York and Gloucester, the Archbishop of Canter- bury, the Lord Chancellor, Lord President, and Lord Privy Seal, the Chancellor of the Exche- quer, Duke of Richmond, two Secretary's of State, the Earl of Chatham, Lord VisCount Weymouth, Lord Hawkesbury, his Royal High- ness the Duke of CLARENCE, and the SPEAKER of the HOUSE of COMMONS were then sworn in ot his Majefty's most Honourable Privy Council, after which the Recorder made his report to his Majesty of the Convicts under sentence of death in Newgate ; the Council broke up about four o'clock, when the King returned to Windsor Lodge to dinner, with the Queen and Princesses. The COMMITTEE on the Westminster Elec- tion, did not sit yesterday, on account of Lord MAITLAND'S indisposition. A misunderstanding is reported to have arisen between the Minister and the contracters for the new Tontine, the latter insisting on receiving in- terest on the whole, from the time of the first pay- ment of ten per cent, which the Minister consi- ders as contrary to the terms of the bargain, and allows only the interest on the installments as they are actually advanced. Sir ARCHIBALD CAMPBELL is come home as we predicted, from the bustle that was made at Madras and the country about, to collect in Sir A.' s debts from the RAJAH of TANJORE. Mr. PETRIE was the agent on this occasion, and did the Governor's business to his entire satisfaction. On the 31st May, his Excellency GENERAL WASHINGTON was unanimously installed with the dignity of Chief Magistrate of the United States of America. The Lord Mulgrave transport has sailed from Portsmouth for Newfoundland, with three com- panies of artillery. Lieutenant Ross commands the vessel. Friday next is appointed for the Court Mar- tial to sit on the conduct of Col. DEBBEIG Lord Kenyon tried thirty Causes yesterday, in the Court of King's Bench, before three o'clock. Sir W. DOLBEN'S Bill for relieving the public from that very notorious grievance— street walking prostitutes, is, we undetstand to extend a little fur- ther ; and, by laying a severe penalty on brothel keepers, save some thousands of the rising genera- tion from ruin. Mr. GODDARD, nephew to the Dean of NOR- WICH, is appointed Under Secretary to Mr. GRENVILLE. A young nobleman, lord D , who has not long been of age, is said to have lost the principal part of the family estate at the ruinous game of Hazard ! The second son of a Catholic Peer has likewise fallen into bad hands -.— Thirty thousand pounds were his losses at a sitting :— the young Gentleman is rusticated into Yorkshire for three years, in consequence of this imprudent tranfaction. The Bank at D'Aubigny's, one evening last week, had an untoward run against it: a lucky punter, Mr. S Y, stripped it of all the cur- rent cash of the evening : the firm of the house, however, suffered not in its credit, as it renewed the successful operations of the next evening with additional resources. The gaol- keepers throughout England, are busily occupied, in getting together an exact ac- count of the various debts of their unhappy pri- soners ; what families they respectively have, and what length of confinement they have suffered. The British Government is not ashamed to copy HOWARDIAN examples. We are happy to hear that the city of London do not mean to object, by their Counsel, to the principle of the insolvent Debtors Bill. As a great an enlightened— and a commercial body, they can never oppose a statute, the object of which is to relieve the unfortunate— and to pu- nish the fraudulent debtor. Notwithstanding the man- slaughter commit- ted in consequence of the last public boxing match, another pugillistic challenge is adver- tised. Magistrates, rouse yourselves, and at once put a stop to these shameful murdering breaches of the peace. On Friday se'nnight a boat, in which were twen- ty- one persons, overset near Howth, in Ireland, and seventeen of them unfortunately perished. FRANCE. THE STATES GENERAL. Paris, June 18th As the public will no doubt be anxious to know the particulars ef the debate, which gave rise to the Third Estate in France forming itself into body to represent the Commons of that kingdom we now give some further particulars, which were promised in our paper of yesterday. the debates were on the 15th and 16th inst, The Nobility on the 15th sent a deputation to his Majesty, with an account of their conduct and deliberations since the opening of the States ge- neral. They sent one likewise to the Thir class, while the Commons', were sitting, seven Members of the Clergy came into their assembly and addressed them as follows : " The nation would have a right to reproach us for not coming yesterday to verify our titles." Our delay preceeded, from very laudable motives. Animated by the desire of uniting our order to yours we were willing to v. all the means of persuasion and patience, which prudence and the love of peace could inspire. We esteem and respect the beneficent Monarch Hea- ven has been pleased to bless us with. His in- tentions are pure his views for the happiness, his subjects are well known to us; every one us was afraid of not acting according to their , but being convinced now, that our powers should be known to all the representatives of the nation we come hither, Gentlemen, in hopes to see oi. unhappy situation cease at last : we come to o - cupy, with full confidence, in the midst of you . those seats that our Sovereign has appointed for us, in order to co- operate in the grand work of the public happiness and welfare of the State, it is from this edifice, constructed by his order, that our gracious Monarch made us hear those moving and endearing expressions, that proclaimed his at- tachment to his beloved people ; and it Is from hence he invited us to join all our labours in common. Being persuaded that the concord of the Three Orders alone, can produce the happy effects the nation seems to wait for with the most anxious impatience, we declare to you, Gentle- men, that it is the m0st earnest desire to establish this union that brings us hither ; we shall rc- spect, as sacredly as those who do us the honour to hear us, the rights of the Sovereign, the Con- stitutional laws of the State, and the property of the individuals who compose it. We beg of you, Gentlemen, to insert in your register- books, the motives and principles we have just laid before you, and to give us a copy of them. It is highly interesting to us that France, nay all the world should know the purity of our intentiOns.,' On the 16th, the Hall was exceedingly croud- ed. The debates lasted till eleven o'clock at night, and were the most remarkable of any since the States assembled. The Abbe Syeyes opened the debate. He said, that it was evident the Assembly, already composed of Representatives sent directly by 96 hundredths of the nation, was the just representation of the Kingdom, Such a number of Deputies should not be inactive on account of the absence of some classes of citizens; for the absent, who have been summoned, cannot prevent those present from exercising the plentitude of their rights, chiefly when the exercise of those rights becomes an ur- gent and coercive duty. The Members are of opinion, that the common efforts for a national restoration may, and ought to be, begun without delay by the Deputies present, and should be pur- sued without, any obstacle or interruption. The only denomination that will suit the Assembly in the actual situation of affairs is this; the Assembly of the Representatives ot the French nation pro- perly verified and known, is the only one the Chamber will adopt, while there are hopes of the absent Deputies coming over to us. They will never cease to invite them individually, as well as collectively, to fulfil the obligation im- posed upon them to attend the Meeting of the States- General : at whatever epoch they shall present themselves, in the course of the session that is going to open, they declare they will re- ceive them with joy, and earnestly carry on with them, after the verification of their powers, the mighty work that is to procure the regeneration of France." To this motion succecded many others on the fame subject. Those that were warmly debated may be reduced to three. M. Buzot moved, that the Commons should constitute them' selves as Representatives of twenty- four millions of inhabitants, without acknowledging the existence of any other separate Orders, their negatives, or inhibitions. It was proposed likewise to assume the title of Representatives of the People, with the modification of the preceding motion. The third proposition was, for the Commons constituting themselves under the name of Representatives of the greatest part of the nation, in the absence of the Representation of the least. The Adventure, Captain INGLEFIELD, re- turned from Africa with the Fairy Sloop. Capt. MANLY of the FAIRY being ill, LIEUTENANT SPRY the Commodore's first Lieutenant, took the command home. The Bulbridge,—, from London to Bengal, was well in lat. 3. 20. S. Lon. 22. 30. Le Prenterns, Barbet, from Guadaloupe, is put into Madeira, and there condemned. The Betty, Emmerson, from Falmouth to Smyrna, is put back to Falmouth, and its feared much damaged.

W. spoke the Garland, of Liverpool, for Africa, all well. The Manship, Gregory, from Bengal, spoke the Earl Cornwallis, Northward of the Cape, and the King George, near the Line. It now becomes necessary to remind the public not to throw pea and bean shells, or other offal of greens, upon the foot- pavement; a practice which is productive of many fatal accidents.— Masters and mistresses would do well to look strictly into the conduct of their servants.— No one knows who may be the sufferer - through such careless- ness. Poetry. LINES ON A CELEBRATED BEAUTY. I've search'd thro' Nature for an Angel's mein, An Angel's temper, and an Angel's look j Careful I visited the chequer'd scene, But ne'er could find them till I gaz'd on C e. Then rose the fair reality confest, In native sweetness, and unrivall'd grace ; Whilst heav'nly music in my yielding breast, Confirm'd the triumph of her matchless face. Smooth be the lot of one, so good ! so fair No rankling care to torture or annoy ; Of circling Angels the delight and care, Till earth must yield her to celestial joy. In those blest realms, where vain distinctions cease, Perhaps in tender sympathy may rove The bird, whose numbers might its object please, But ne'er could wake it into mutual love. C. J. ADDRESSED TO MR. PITT. I SEE blooming merit in high station reign, A sphere adorning it can seldom gain. See him, whose Sire his former splendour gave, Advance to snatch his country from the grave. Pu suo, O PITT, the happy course begun, Nor let the Sire be greater than the Son ; Reflect, no pow'r can last, no pow'r can shine, If patriot ardour prompt not each design. Without it, glory's but the thunder's found Without it, talents but the means to wound; Without it, office' but the menial's place, And dignity, illustrious disgrace. On it then soar to everlasting fame, That children yet unborn may bless thy name. NEW FASHIONS AT PARIS. LADIES— FIRST PRESS. THESE dresses, which are called pierrots, chief- ly consist of white linen, embroidered fancifully with all kinds of flowers ; some are varied with coloured taffety. These pierrots have linings and trimmings of a different colour, and are ornament- ed with buttons of wrought steel. The most fashionable Ladies' dress is a pierrot of violet taffety, lined and trimmed with deep orange, and ornamented with wrought steel but- tons. Underneath the pierrot is a sky- blue sto- macher, and a petticoat of white linen embroi- dered with flowers and leaves of every possible description. About the neck is a full kerchief, a good deal puffed out, and very open before : the end behind is hid under the pierrot, and the ends before un- der the stomacher. On the feet are shoes of green taffety, with ribbons and rosettes of the same colour; not that we would have it imagined that ribbons and ro- fettes of a different colour are entirely out of fashion; we have wished to infer only, that the other is the most prevailing mode. The handle of the fan is of rose and green wood blended— the paper plain green. The hair in front, and at the sides, is dressed entirely in large curls; those at the sides fall down upon the neck. The hair behind floats in separate and inclining curls, fastened by a steel slide. The bonnet is of gauze ornamented with a tuft of gauze falling in the manner of a veil, and with a loose garland of artificial flowers. There is also a large knot of blue ribbon before, and a bouquet of artificial flowers, the stalks of which are concealed under the knot. SECOND DRESS. A chemise of very clean gauze, put over a dress of rose taffety. Through this chemise is seen a girdle of velvet taffety, embroidered with green silk. The rose- coloured dress seen through the gauze, consists simply of a taffety caraco and petticoat. This chemise is not fastened in the usual way by a girdle, but by a green ribbon knotted immediately under the chin. The sleeves are tied betwixt the elbow and the shoulder, like- wise by a green ribbon ; and the top of the chemise ornamented by a large frieze, having two rows of broad plaits. The chemise, removable at pleasure, is only worn within doors ; and is in very general use. The present head- dress consists of a hat, a good deal inclined to the left side, of white taffety, embroidered at the edges with small green sprigs, and bound at the crown by a broad white rib bon, likewise embroidered with the same sprigs. At the lower part of the crown is a broad green ribbon, with a large knot at the side, and a bouquet of red and yellow flowers. There are also two white feathers, fastened, as well as the bouquet, on the right side, by a knot of green ribbon. The hair is in detached curls, four of which, in two rows, fall at each side the bosom. The hair behind as in the first Ladies' dress. The shoes are of green taffety, with ribbons and rosettes of the same colour. The gloves, of white leather, reach to the elbow. Afternoon. MINUTES of BUSINESS before the HoUse of COMMONS. This Day.— Committees on Westminster Life Insurance Bill, and Horses and Carriages Duty Bill— Committees 0n British Fisheries— Revolu tion Bill, and Gardener's Bill- The Reports on Indemnity Bill and Annuity Bill— Second " Read- ing of Tontine Bill. Yesterday arrived the Mail from HOLLAND. The Marquis D'OSMOND is appointed Minister Plenipotentiary from the Court of France to the States General The Earl of THANET is arrived at Vienna on his travels. Mr. HAMMOND, the Charge des Affairs, and of whom the world speaks so well, introduced him to all the Foreign Ministers. There are no accounts yet of the SWEDISH FLEET having sailed from Carlscrona, but it was daily expected.— The Duke of Sudermania com- mands. The Russian brig of 22 guns, which captured a Swedish frigate of 44 guns, was commanded by Capt. CROWN, who is on the British half- pay. The EMPEROR does not find the air of Luxemburgh of such benefit as was expected. He is still in a very alarming situation, and it is thought he will be a again removed to some other place. A Danish Camp is to be formed near Rens- bourg in Holstein, and the Prince ROYAL is to review it. The DANES remain neuter, according to the last agreement with Sweden. It is said, that the FRENCH KING has pub- lished an arret prohibiting the importation of English Gauze. Last night the Purser of the Albion, Captain Allen, came to the India- House with news of her safe arrival off the Start on the 2 2d inst. She sailed on her outward bound voyage to Coast and China from the Downs on the 26th of March 1788. His MAJESTY'S Packet- boct, the Expedition, with two mails on board, for Lisbon, was wait- ing at Falmouth, 011 Saturday last, for a fair wind. His MAJESTY'S Packet- boat, the PRINCE WILLIAM HENRY, which is arrived at Fal- mouth, from Jamaica, has brought over twelve thousand three hundred and eleven pounds in specie, for the use of the merchants. The Exchange between Leghorn and London, on the 5th instant, was 49 We may deem ourselves happy in this coun- try, where it rarely happens that after the grain shoots forth prosperously from the earth, and bids fair for a plentiful harvest, that the hopes of the farmer and people are disappointed.— How widely different in many other countries! On the shores of Barbary, the finest grain is produced, the ground being well moistened by the tropical rains, which extend far beyond twenty- three degrees and a half, and extreme warmth immediately after follows; but notwithstanding those happy circumstances, innumerable quantities of locusts are often wafted by the fouthern winds, which, alighting on the soil, devour every vegetable, o that even the smallest blade of grass is not left. by this means famine pervades, attended with direful pestilence. In Spain, from the long droughts which frequently happen, the face of the country wears not only a russet but arid hue; great scarcity after such seasons, prevails, and importation of grain alone supplies the public wants; though in the time of the ancient Romans, the course of rivulets was so directed over the fields, as to make that country as abundant in grain as any in Europe. France, except a few provinces, is better adapted to vineyards than corn, though in general a plentiful kingdom. In the plains of Germany, naturally fertile, the labours of the peasant are too often rendered fruitless by the dreadful ravages of war. The long and intense winters in the Northern Coun- tries frequently defeat the best conduced tillage, and the short summer scarcely ripens vegetation, therefore they must be beholden to their more southerly neighbours." From the continuance of showers, wafted to us from every westerly point, we may very justly anticipiate a most plentiful harvest, while our meadows will yield the most luxuriant grass and herbage, and our fields and gardens teem with abundance. If, therefore, the most flagrant and bare- faced monoply and extortion are not prac- tised, which is too prevalent, particularly in the London markets, the price of meat must be great- ly reduced, butter be sold more reasonable, vege- tables be exceedingly cheap, and corn fall con- siderably, as the farmers granaries will be soon replaced with plenty. The God of harvests has peculiarly blessed this country for several seasons past, with the most abundant vegetation; nor does war, which shakes its blood- stained standard over distant nations, desolate our plains. Our greatest enemies, and those most inimical to the interests of the poorer orders, and consequently of trade and manufactures in general, are those who are but too successful in making are ar- tificial scarcity, at times, when the lap of earth yields the greatest exuberance." Petitions are said to be preparing to the Court of Aldermen, praying their interference in the regulation of the markets, and to enquire parti- cularly into the real cause of the present high price of provisions; as it is too evident it must be occasioned, at this season of the year, by evil practices, which it is hoped, for the benefit of the industrious poor, will be seriously exam'ned into by some public- spirited and humane member of the Court. Rome, May 1. A huntsman, in the excessive cold of December last, had the good fortune to kill ill the vicinity of Fiumicino, an African bird of a very rare species, which is now in the Mu- seum of his Eminence Zelada ; where many per- sons of eminence anl rank resort to admire it. The Warden and Verdurers of the New Fo- rest, have got their bows in readiness to meet his MAJESTY, on his arrival at Lyndhurst. A Mail Coach will be established between Weymouth and London during His MAJESTY'S stay at that place. Mr. PALMER has given in his plan, which will be immediately carried into execution. Major HALLIDAY has purchased Leasowes, once the beautiful seat of the celebrated SHEN- STONE. Fourteen thousand pounds is said to be the purchase- money, though the annual income is little more than 200I. Simplex Mundities should be the Englishman's motto, when he furnishes a house ; Mr. Elder- ton's is too much in the French style— however, his fine collection of prints are deserving of notice, as they shew the great perfection the arts have attained in this country. His Grace of CHANDOS, Lord NORTH, and Lord BRUdENELL, will make Tunbridge- Wells their summer watering- place; houses being en gaged for them there. Miss RACKHOUSE, the beauty of Liverpool, is not yet married. Her sister, " qualis decet esse sororum" is shortly to be united with Mr. KEN- DALL., of that place. Mr. GREEN, of Salisbury, is married to the Brecon Miss WILLIAMS. An amiable young lady at a market- town in Buckinghamshire, who lately by the death of her own brother came into the actual possesion of an estate of 40,0001. has generously given to two deserving young women 1oool. each, and also an estate in Bedfordshire worth 600I. Mr. COMMELINE is presented to the Rectory of Addington, in Worcestershire. Mr. BUCHANAN, of Stirling, is the new Mi- nister of Canongate. Mr. Baldwin, the Earl of Sussex's Chaplain, succeeds to the vicarage of Alrewas, in Stafford- shire, on Dr. Farmer's presentation. Dr. MURRAY and Dr. DOBBIN are the two candidates for the vacant Prebendary of St. Michael's. A Clerical Suicide has happened near Netley- Abbey. The sympathy of the Manchester Theatre with that of the Opera House, was truly singular. The heat of the fire in both Theatres was at their respective heights at the very same instant, and both were totally destroyed under mutual circum- stances of the strongest suspicion. It is singular that THREE great Theatrical con- flagrations, two in England, and one in France, should happen nearly at the same point of time ; and most probably, each of them effected by in- cendiaries. KEMbLE in Romeo, and FARMER in Juliet, are now charming Liverpool with extraordinary fascination. The portion of ground necessary for Lewes new market- place, will be shortly marked out in the Castle- yard. The remaining nights of the OPERA SEASON will be at Covent Garden Theatre, which opens again on Saturday evening. Yesterday a Clergyman was examined at the Public Office, Bow- street, before William Ad- dington, Esq. and by him committed to Tothil- Fields prison, for want of bail. He was charged on the oaths of two young men, with having at- tempted to commit an unnatural crime on one of the witnesses, whom he enticed to go with him home to his lodgings, from Hyde Park, where he had been bathing.— Respect for the noble family to whom he is nearly related, inclines us not to mention his name. Yesterday the Recorder made his Report to the King in Council of the Prisoners under Sen- tence of Death in Newgate convicted in the two last Sessions, when the following were ordered for Execution, on Wednesday next, viz. John Ward, Edward Church and John Blinkworth, for Burglary in the Dwelling- House of Joseph May, in the liberty of the Old Artillery Ground, and stealing a Silver Pint Mug, two Silver Pep- per Castors, a Silver Milk- Pot, and other Plate ; Thomas Denton and John Jones, for having in their Possession, at a House in Bell- Court, Gray's Inn Lane, a great Variety of Punches, Dyes, and other Implements for Coining, not being lawfully authorized; and George Green, for robbing Ann Saunders, on the Highway, in Dover- Street, of 16 Dozen of Kid Skins.

Prefcot and Co. for Payment of 700I. with Intent to defraud the said Mess. Prescot and Co. was respited, for a Fortnight; and the following during his Majesty's Plea- sure, viz.

BALL commenced on the 4th inst. and was well attended ; but the company were much more numerous than splendid ; how- ever, the occasion proved sufficient to destroy all distinction, and joy was seen in every counte- nance. It is but justice to say, the evening be- gan and ended with the greatest harmony, Last Monday, the first stone was laid for build- ing a New Stone Pter at Margate. Several respect- able gentlemen attended the ceremony, and Mr. FRANCIS COBB, the Deputy, and Son, placed under it four guineas of the present reign.
