The known abilities of this Nobleman render his par- liamentary fpecches of importance. Speaking but feldom and that on matters of moment, his arguments are not of that extemporaneous kind which arife from a mere habit of loquacity. His fpeech 011 Tusfday 29th ult. was fraught, in our opinion, with much good fer. fe; and many hints were thrown out which it may be worth a Miniller's while to adopt, even if they fliould be thought to come from a quarter hofiile to the prefent fyllem. We are lorry it is not in our power to gratify our readers with this fpeech in a more accurate manner. The following, however, is the bell abridgment we have been able to procure; and we hope that after the pains we have taken to do jullice to Mr. Fox and the ( relent fpeakers, we ( hall not be accufed of, what indeed we deem a meannefs, that partiality which reftrifts a newfpaper to the Service of ONE SET OF MEN, AND ONE SET OF SENTIMENTS. The MARQUIS OF LANSDOWNE faid, that it was 3 maxim in war, which had been oblerved by all great Ge- nerals, that the fame flratagems ought not to be too fre- quently repeated, lelt they fliould become too common, and lofe- their effeCt. This maxim in the prefent circum stances was, perhaps, worthy the attention of the Minifliy. It might happen, that a Meffage might be fent from his Majefty, requiring the approbation and fupport of certain meafures. It might happen likewife that the Minifters, from pretended motives of expediency and convenience, might decline giving any account of the nature and ten- dency of thefe meafures; but might pledge themfelves for their public neceffity and ufefiilnefs, and hold themfelves out as bound to be accountable with their heads for the refult. On the faith of fuch affurances, a vote of credit might be given ; the SefTion of Parliament might be nearly at an end, and hoftilities might be threatened to be com- menced. A peace afterwards might be patched up, and the people, too happy to have purchafed it at any rate, might forbear all future enquiry ot the circumllances which had attended the difturbance, or the conduft which had been purfued in effecting the pacification. But though this might be the cafe, when we had to contend with a nation, alarmed for the fafety of its Acapulco veffels, and whofe fupport was derived from the mines of Mexico and Peru, yet we were not to hope that fuch meafures would always lead to an ilfue equally pacific. Tilt prefent Miniftry, he remarked, had appeared to have changed their fyftem— a change which was fo much the more deplorable, as of the various fy Items which to- night had been brought forward, [ here was none which they feemed decifively to have adopted. He was far from willing to infinuate that the Minifters were defirous of war, or could have any inclination to en. - gage the nation in hoftilities. On the contrary, he was rather inclined, from the prefent fituation of affairs, to form the conclulion, that the Minifters would be averfe to war, and anxious to avoid all meafures which might lead to hoftilities. This conclufion he was inclined to adopt, from the increafiug and almoft intolerable load of public burthens', and the poverty which had lately appeared of refources. Taxes had been impofed the moft oppreffivi; on the indultrious poor, which had not only pinched their narrow circumltances, but even impaired their means of fubfiiience, and had left them in the country to fuftain all the hardfhips of poverty and famine. He would not de- traft any thing from the merits of the reduced ftate of the nation, and its incapaciiy to l'uftain the expellees of a war, and confequently might be fuppofed to be a rea- fon why Minifters would not chufe to hazard a mealure, for which they are fo ill prepared. He did not mean to detraft any thing from the merits of ihofe, whofe duty it was to point out lefourcesj he was inclined to give them the credit of ihe higheft abilities ; but this would only ( hew what poor fliifts had become neceffary, from the exhaufled tote of the national refources. Even if the income of the country was, as the Minifter wifhed to be believed, equal to its expenditure, the flow progrefs which had been made in paying off the unfunded debt, and other circumftances, Jliewed that the revenue was by no means in a flourifhing ftate ; and in the event of a war, lie was firmly perfuaded that tnuli happen to this country, which would have hap- pened to France, if it had not been pofltffed of tile Church Lands, the Royal Domains, and the exemptions of the Nobility. Thefe had amounted to about two hundred millions— a fum which enabled ihem to difcharge their debt. But in cafe of a fimilar convulfion, this country was not pofleffed of equal rel'ources. With regard to the property the Church, every part of it was, in his opinion, ne- ceffary to the maintenance of the Clergy, if it was properly divided. The Royal Domains were nothing, and the ex- emptions of the Nobility we did not poflefs ; fo that, in cafe of the event which he had dated, the inevitable rcfult mirft be a national bankruptcy. At prefent the Bank of Amflerdatri, to which we trufted for fupport, had received a fatal- bloW in its credit; the Ealt- lndia Company was bankrupt, and the Weft- India Company was felling off at a difcotrnt of about a third. It fliould be confidercd to what degree of confidence Minifters were entitled, who had fo recently, in a; former inftancC, betrayed the confidence which was repofed in them, and who, if' they fliould again receive it, might be fuppofed, on the prefent occafion, to employ it wildly and wantonly.: Ruffe was by no means fuch an antag^ nift as Spain. The people, . inftead of being indolent and weak, were aftive and hardy ; inftead of gold atid filver, they were polfeffed of iron. The late King of Vruffia, the greateft hero and politician of the age, whole ' authority was Very higli in every queftion of war, ftates, that nothing ' ee'oM b* mare, unprofitable than an enmity with RufTia ; and that there was no country, whofe enmity could be more hurtful, or from which an antagonift could receive lefs advantage.' It could nojt be attacked in its ca. pital, whillt there was no country more capable of annoy- ance and defence. We would be engaged to accompany the King of Pruflia with a fleet to Peterfburgh. And in that cafe, it would be nectfuny to procure gallies, as our great ( hips could be of no fetvice. Thefe we m'uft purchafe from the King of Sweden, who having experienced our neutrality, and being fenfible of his own value from his immediate contiguity to Ruffia, would take care to enhance the price of his favours. And as we had paid to the King of Pruffia a fubfidy of 8oo, oool. for his alliance, perhaps it would be neceffary to pay a larger fum to the King of Sweden, who, confciotis of the advantage which he derived from the prefent fituation of affairs, would expeft to receive a fum fuitable to his own ( till greater importance. When we were once engaged in a war, the confideration of ex- pellee no longer became an objeft. No facrifice was to be made to a trifling faving; nor could the lengths to which we might go be afcertained, as they could only be regulated by our fuccefs. It would l'urely be confidered as very bad policy to protraCt a war for the fake of conducting it upon an oeconomical plan. It was this idea that the late Lord Chatham had pointedly ridiculed, when he talked of Mr. Legge's wars at the rate of five millions a year. Much had been faid of the late Lord Chatham ; and it might here be propeily remarked, that lie conltanily reprobated all con- nexion between this country and Turkey. The reafon which lie affigned was, that Turkey was an Aliatic ftate, and to form treaties with it, and enter into its " views, would beafource of endkf's confufion. I11 any war which we fliould have occafion to carry 011 with Ruffia, we fliould find ourfelves deprived of all thofe advantages which we were apt to appropriate from our fituation, and boaft of as peculiarly Our own. The Ruffians were qualified to match us at fia. By lending them our officers, we had enabled them to contend with ourfelves. The Ruffian failors, it is true, were rude and ignorant, but they flood fire like pillars of ftone or ( locks of wood. Nothing could be conceived more dreadful than a Ruffian engagement at fea. Perfonal courage was of no avail. The characters of our feamen could not ( land us in any ( lead ; there was only battery oppofed to battery. Another circumftance from which we fliould encounter the Ruffians with confiderable difadvan • tage was, that we fliould have to contend with them 011 their own Teas. There were none of our Admirals who were acquainted with the Baltic, except one, who, it was pra- bable, would not be employed. In the Black Sea we had equally to overcome the difficulties of inexperience in op- pofing thofe who were completely, vei fed in its navigation. It was a curious doftrine that had been advanced, that we were bound not only to fupport our allies, but likewife thofe who might be connefted with them. On this principle we were bound to proteft the Emperor of Germany, who furely was fufficiently qualified to take care of himfelf; and alfo the kingdom of Poland. This, perhaps, was rather a new inference, and it demanded fome confidera- tion, whether it could be adopted with prudence in its con- fequences. It would certainly be ftrange, if, with the example of France before them, and the inftances of confidence which were then repofed in the fubjefts, the people here Ihould be led to vote the approbation and fupport of meafures, of whofe circumftances and tendency they were ignorant. The French had firft fet the example of a liberal and enlightened policy, the influence of which, it was to be hoped, would not be loft 011 this country, and would extend to other na- tions of Europe. They had difchimed all views of ambi- tion and defiie of conqueft, and referved themfelves no pretext to engage in war, except from the motive of feif- defence. He by no means wiflied to import into this country all the principles of the French Revolution. The French had confidered their conftitution as an old houfe, which it was neceffary to rebuild. Our conftitution was likewife an old houfe ; but it contained excellent apart- ments, and required only to be repaired, and fecured from the inclemency of the feafons ! AUTHENTIC ADVICES. PARIS, March 31. On the night of the 171I1 a number of the Inhabitants of Toulon, were murdered by the foldiers of the legion of Aft -- the citizens, ftruck with juft horror, ran to arms, and were in the very aft ot burning the part of the town, which is chiefly peopled by that banditti, when the municipal of- ficers prevailed upon them not only to defift from their in- tentions, but even to contribute their aid to lay the fury of the flames, which they had caufed—- the people, however, went in a formidable body by the Colonel's lodgings, who was fulpefted of having a quantity of arms in his pofieflion, but after the moft fcrupulous fearch, they found only one double barrell gun ;— the colours of this corps were carried to the town houfe, but being, demanded by the mob, they were given up, torn to pieces and burnt; two men, who had been concealed by the Municipality, left the people fhoutd facrifice them to their rage, owned, at their firft in- terrogatory, that the intent of the legion was to maff'acre every individual in the commercial part of the town !--- the leaders of this horiid plot have efcaped to Spain. By a decree of Monday the wings of Royalty have been molt clolely dipt; fhould the King of the French, have a mind to take the air, his flight niuft not extend beyond twenty leagues, from where tht Legiflative body is afTembled,. unlefs he hear with him their exprefs permiffion 1 fhould he' quit the kingdom, he abdicates the thrown in the eye of tile nation. M. de Lomenie has fer. t his Cardinal's hat to Rome- he thinks that the Catholick religion needed.. a fchifni, by which a reform, founded on reafon might be effefted. The National Aflembly have it in contemplation to de- cree that no French Clergyman, living in France, ftiall henceforward accept any title rank or dignity from the Bi- fhop cf Rome.-— Cardinal de Bernes, for certain reltriftions exprefled in his oath on ih.* clerical conftitution, is no longer Charge d'Affaires of France at the Court of Pius VI; he is fucceeded in his Embaffy by M. de Segur, the late Am- baflador at the Court of St. Peterfburgh. The Club, of which the great Royalilt, Clermont Ton, nerre is Prefident, met 011 Tuefday, but no fooner were the mob informed of it, than they hailed to put them to flight — many of them were confined for wearing the white cock- ade, and many more were very feverely handled for being found ill LOYAL company. It is in agitation to deprive the King of the privilege of feieftir. g his own Minifters. Mirabeau has talked himfelf into a very ferious malady ; and wonderful I fo great is the homage paid to him, that the minuteft fymptoms attendant on his indifpofition, are reported to the Affembly. The Queen rides in the Bois de BonSogn every fine day, attended by two officers of the National Cavalry— fhe is at- tentive to every mark of refpeft fhown to her, and will not fuffer a child to pals tier unfaluted— the Dauphin accompa- nies her ufually--- Prudence dictates this precaution, ( he knows that her fun will procure her the refpeft which fne cannot enfure to herfelf.

CORN BILL. The Houfe, purfuant to ihe order of the day, refolved itfelf into a Committee upou the Corn Bill, Mr. Bianlton ill the Chair. A converfation took, place upon moft of the claufes, and a diviiion upon that which confifcates the ( hip, or veffel, 011 board of which a certain quantity of grain or niea! fhall be found, when not exportable. Inftead of this claufe, Mr. Alderman Curtis propofed a penalty upon the tonnage, at the rale of one hundred pounds for one hundred tons meafurement of the fliip or vtflel in which fuch corn or meal fhould be found.. Lord Shetfield'and Sir Peter Bunel were for the amend- ment. Mr. Ryder, Mr. Pitt, the Attorney General, and Mr. Rofe were againft it. The Committee divided, and negatived the amendment, there being for the original claufe, Ayes - 64 Noes - 39 Majority 2.5 The Committee then proceeded, until they came to the table regulating the prices of grain for opening and ( hutting the ports; and that part of the table being read, which enafts, that the ports fhail be opened for the importation of Foreign Corn, when the price of Britifh fliall amount to 48s. or upwards. Mr. POWYS rofe, and contend « d againft the admiflion of foreign wheat, until the produce of this country fliould be at the average price of 52s. inftead of 48s.-— and faid he would take the fenfe of the Committtee for the infertion of the higher prices. Mr. RYDER, upon the point of order, obferved that it would be incompetent for the Hun Gentleman, in the prefent Committee to move his 3mendmeHt; the mode now to be adopted, he faid, muft be by negativing the whole table. Mr. POWYS replyed it was the fame thing, as tbe Com- mittee undejrftood his objeft, and the ground he flood upon. He moved to have the table omitled. Mr. RYDER rofe in fupport of the table, and accounted for the increafe of importation from the increafe of wealth, of population, of luxury, of horfes, of diftilleries, & c. & c. The bill, he faid, was calculated to prevent an artificial fcarcity, and to keep wheat at a price not too low for the grower, nor too high for the confumer ; 48s. he conceived to be the fair medium, and could not confent to the al- teration propofed by the Hon. Gentleman. Lord CARYSFORT confidered that the cheapeft poffihle way of procuring corn for the confnmptioiv of the country, would be by making the importation and exportation free : Such, however, was not the objeft of the prefent bill, its objeft being to fecure for the people coin not at the loweft pofiible price, but at fuch a moderate price, as might infure the growth of the country to be adequate to its confumption ; the whole of which objeCt his Lordfliip faid was hazarded by allowing too low a price for the importation of corn to be admitted, which could not fail to difcourage the tillage of the country, and render us dependent upon other countries for fupport. He was therefore for railing the price to 52s. Mr. MONTAGUE was for the table. Mr. PELHAM faid the principal objeft of the'Houfe ought to be, the fupplying of the country with corn of its own growth, which he contended could not beeffefted, fituated as England was fituated, unlefs th? growing of corn was forced by bounties, or by an admiflion to export when the prices fhould be higher than propofed by the bill. He concluded by giving his vote for the increafe of price to 51s. Mr. PULTENF. Y faid a free trade would be hazardous, and the Houfe were not to rifle the exiftetice of the people upon any theory. He wiflied the price to be increafed as propofed by the Hon Gentleman, that the farmer might not i> e crufhed, being convinced, that by crufhing the farmer, the poor would i> e crufhed alfo. Mr. BASTARD was f ® r negativing the table. Mr. POWYS ( howed to the Conimit. tge a calculation lie had received from ieveral quarters which wotfji drove ir- refiftibly that a farmer could not gain upon 48s. the quarter j for, admitting that he gave but 10s. rent for an acre,, and that his tillage and other expesfes would amount to 6t. 3s. 5d. more.; to repay which, calculating that" an acre would produce three quarters, at the higheft price in cite bill, 48s. the farmer would receive, to defray thofe expences of 7I. 3s. 5d. no more than 7I. 4s. Lord SHEFFIELD contended, that 52s. ( houid be the loweft that ought to be grained. _ Mr. Fox faid arguments ftom experience were to be with the greateft fafety relyed on, and experience warranted a high protefting price ; for from the old praftice of boun- ties, and under the old laws, the price of wheat decreafed, until the bill of 1773, after which it increafed, and the country, mftead of exporting, commenced to a confiderabfe degree, the injurious praftice of importing corn. Tbofe, he faid, who cultivate corn, ought to know, that fhouid they be unfortunate in. their crops, the price would fuffi- ciently rife to indemnify them : and by fuch means en- couragement would be given to tillage, and ( he poor ulti- mately benefitted by a greater plenty. The only iecurity to , the poor, he faid, was by encouraging the tillage of die country, and that alone was to be done by bounties, or high protecting prices, which operate as bounties. He liid the country was oppreffed by tithes, the collection of which was harfh and injuiious ; and it was hiswifh that fome gen- tleman might attempt jn that Houfe to relieve the country from that Ipecies of barbarif'm, and dil'couragement to agri- cuhural improvement. He concluded by faying he had no difficulty whatever to give his vote for the prohibition, till corn fliould' beat 52s. per quarter. Mr. PITT was for the tab!;, being convinced that the fyftem upon which it went, fixed the price high enough tor the encouragement of tillage, and at the fame time guarded the conl'umer againft any ferious inconvenience. Mr. Pitt and Mr. Fox feveral times fpoke in explanation, as did other Gentlemen ; after which the queftion was put, and the table was negatived by a divifion. Ayes - 53 Noes - .59 Majority S A defultory converfation enfued, in which Mr. Pitt intimated that though the divifion had gone againft him m a Committee, he fhould, if it appeared convenient, take the fenfe of the Houfe upon the bufinefs. At eleven o'clock the remainder of the Bill was post- poned, and the Houfe refumed, and the Committee ordered to lit again on Thurfday, Adjourned. H O uTTTf L O R D S. TUESDAY, April 5.

Tuefday a Meeting of the. Planters and Merchants trading 10 the Weft Indies, convened by public advtrafc- mem, wis held at the Crown aud Anchor in the Straad, Lord Penrhyn in the Chair. A Memorial, fetting forth the prefent danger to which the lives and properties of the White People 111 our Weft India Iflands are now expofed, from the a'arming and dif- affefted ftate in which the flaves and black men in geiteril are " in moft of thofe Iflands, particularly in Dominica, was lately prefetited by a Committee to Lord Grenville, as Secretary of Stale. He defired to be informed, what military force was neceffary to reftore the peace ar, j tran- quillity of the iflands. The " Comnflttee declaring them- U'lves incompetent to anfwer the qneftion, he propoll- d, That a Meeting fliould be held on the fubjeft. In couie- quence of which, the Meeting of Tuefdny was called. It appeared by information from the Colonies, that the minds of tlie black people throughout the i/ bnds have been much inflamed by information communicated to them, of the difcuffion of the ( lave trade by the Houfe of Commons. That the ( laves had demanded that they fiiould have four days out of the feven to themfelves ; and that for thofc days, they fhould be paid for their labour. Mr. Knoe road an Extraft of an Examination taken before the Council of Dominica, of a negro who was one of the ringleaders of the infurreftion, it was dated the 7th of February, 1791 ; and ftated that, on Governor Crete's landing, it was circulated throughout the ifland, that he had brought pofitive inftruftions from this country, that the Blacks fliould be free; fliould work but a ftated time j and for that time he paid an adequate compenfation. That the Negroes throughout the ifland agreed to a general, revolt; a Chief was chofen over the whole, and one over each plantation ; they had procured upwards of 500 ( land ot arms; and agreed that oil a certain night, about fupper time the whole of the infurgents fliould rife and murder their mailers, without diltinftion, and all thofe white People who fhould attempt to refill therti, or even to blame their conduft ; ar. d that the furviving White Meti Oiouid be driven to a remote part of the ifland ; a body of troops attacked the infurgents, and by feveral of the ringleaden falling into their hands, this fcheme was fruflrated ; but not before many of the foldiery were deftroyed ; who n « fooner fell, but their mu& ets were feized, and carried to affift in arming the reft of the negroes. It appeared to be the unanimous opinion of the Meeting, that nothing could fo effectually re- eftabhfh the quiet of the colonies as the ( peedy termination of the- prefent bufwefs before the Houfe of Commons refpefting the flave trade ; to which effect a Refolution was framed, in order to be pre- fented to Lord Grenville.

If you are placed in a part of the room which you think not fuited to your confequence, do not allow yourfelf to complain, or even to appear diffatisfied ; and you will not, if you confider, that the perfon gives honour to the feat, not the feat to the perfon : if you are an invalid, and' likely to fuffer in your health if not put into the warmeft, you had better remain by your own fire- fide. 3. Avoid ( hewing any fort of difcontent againft the party you may be engaged with ; mind your game, remember you are thrown together only for a few hours, and be thankful that it is not for life. 4. Be fare you put down your card money at the expi- ration of the firft rubber you play, calling on fome one at the table to be witnefs of the depofit. j. Be not impatient for your tea and coffee, and if it is ftrong and warm, well; if weak and cold, be filent, and take the lefs of it, which will be better for your nerves, and fave your reputation for good- breeding. To find fault is totally repugnant to true politenefs. 6. When the Cakes are brought to you, guard againft fingering the whole bafket, or diving for a macaroon ; ( finely matrimony may fatisfy you:) do not help yotirfelf too largely, left you incur the fufpicion of faving yqur fupper. 7. Go into every party with an eye to improvement, ra- ther than to ridicule, to confirm and increafe, not to weaken and dlminifh your benevolence. 8. Be not too much dreffed, nor affeft a negligcnce cf it. The former is an indication of a frivolous, the latter of a contemptuous roind. THURSDAY, April 7. From the L O N D O N G AZ E T T E.

COUNTRY NEWS' Port/ mouth, April 4. This forenoon the London, of 98 guns, failed out of harbour to Spithead, and immediately Admiral Goodall hoilted his flag on board of her. The Lizard frigate, Captain Hutt, is ordered into the Channel on the iniprels fervice, and the Sweden has made a formal Treaty with the Emprefs of Ruffia, by which the King is to fupply her Imperial Majelly, in " cafe of a rupture with England and Ruffia, with twelve Ihips of the line and 16,000 troops ; and the Emprefs is to relinquifti her late acquifttions, or rather encroachments in Finland, which have been fo galling to the Swedifh Monarchy. Judge Wilfon is fo much recovered by the air of Lifbon, that he propofes to return home towards the middle of next month. All yet looks like hoftility. The preparations for war ftiil going on. A Prefs at the Out- Ports taken place. Conferences with the Foreign Ambaffadors become more frequent, particularly between the Minifter and the Dutch and Pruffian AmbafTadors. The Ruffian Ambaffador made his appearance laft Sunday at St. James's ; bet vifibly more out of ceremony, and as it were in confequence of the com- ments that had been made upon his long abfence from Court, than out of any cordiality that feems reviving between the two nations. His reception, of courfe, had nothing interefting or particular in it, further than what belongs to fo diftinguifhed a Nobleman, the reprefentative of one of the firfl crowned heads. The Prefs has not yet taken place in the Port of London. No gangs then are feen parading our ftreets, and excepting a houfe or two of rendezvous, with fome little buftie about the Vidtualling Office, and near the water, all here is as yet tranquility, and many are of opinion that the prefent warlike ap- pearances will blow off The Ruffian Merchants have prefented a Memo- rial to his Majelly's Minifters, in which the chief queftion was, " Whether, in the preient fituatioti of affairs, they might execute their prefent orders to Ruffia in Britifh bottoms?" have received the following anfwer : " That in the prefent fituation of affairs, nothing " could be determined on relative to the expediency , c of the departure of the fhips deftined for the fe- " veral ports in the Ruffian Empire ; that as foon " as his Majelly's Minifters ffiould be able to give " any information on the fubjeft, the Duke of " Leeds would fend notice to the Merchants ; but " that it was uncertain when that notice might be " expedted." The Trinity Houfe have provided pilots for the Baltic. It is not a little remarkable, that feveral Captains in the Ruffian and Swedifh trade have adtually refufed their fervices on this occafion'. From all the ports of Ruffia, there are 700 fail of Englifh ffiips annually employed, and they are, on an average, of 300 tons each. The Ardent, of 64 guns, Captain Vaffion, ar- rived on Tuefday in the Downs, from Spithead. All the outward- bound Indiamen of this feafon take out 250 recruits for the neceffary augmenta- tion of the Britifti forces in the Eaflern world. Captain Foulkes, of the Afia Eaft Indiaman, Marlborough, and will fail the firft fair wind for the Downs. The 31ft, 30th, and 3d regiments of foot, are under orders to do duty as marines in the fleet. The orders for preffing are at prefent wholly con fined to feamen found on board their refpeilive ( hips, and fuch as were taken on fhore on Friday were im- mediately fet at liberty. Port/ mouth, April 5. This moment Sir Richard King's flag has been hoifled on board the Marlbo- rough, . of 74 guns ; as hat Admiral Faulkner's, on board the Barfleur, of 98 guns, both at Spithead. The Marlborough is ordered immediately to the the Downs, where Sir Richard's flag will continue flying, until the St. George, of 98 guns, is ready. Plymouth, April I. From twelve o'clock laft night till fix this morning, there was the hotteft prefs ever known in Hamoaze, Catwater, and Plymouth Pool. Many good failors were picked up, particularly from the colliers : the crew of one, in particular, had concealed themfelves for a fortnight paft, and flept on board laft night, thinking the bufinefs of preffing was put a flop to. They were all carried on board the Cambridge. Laft night, advertifements were pobliffied by the Agent Victualler for two feparate contrafls, each for 1000 quarters of ambtr malt, for the brewery at Southdown. Large quantities of corn were fent to the King's mills to be ground for baking bifCuit for the Fleet; and the bakers have orders to open fix ovens to- morrow, and to bake as many fuites of bifcuit in a Angle day as can poffibly be got done, each fuite of bifcuit weighing 1181b. A private of the Artillery on Monday morning early, having the preceding night flept with a girl of the toivn in Liberty- ftreet, Dock, appeared a little hurt at a preference fhe had paid another inamorato, and told her, in a fit of jealoufy, he would deftitey himfelf. The girl cried, Murder ! and the foldier immediately applied the muzzle of a horfe- piftol, which was concealed under his cloaths, and which he had borrowed the preceding day, to his ears, and blew his brains out— he died inftantly. He was the fineft fellow in the Train of Artillery quartered at Dock, and a good foldier. LONDON. The King of Sweden is fitting out a fquadron at Carlefcrona, which will be ready for fea by the itt of May. The Danes alfo are preparing an armament, as they are alarmed at the rumour of the foreign fleet being about to appear in the Baltick. The Ruffian fleet, in the ports of Sebaftopol, or Skurfhi, and Cherfon, confilts of about forty veffels, of which one third are nearly equal to our twenty- eight gun frigates, and the remainder little more than mere gun boats, The Turkifh fleet, however, is much inferior, in point of number and not half manned. An inundation has taken place at Hamburgh, by which great part of that city has been laid under water; the damage is calculated at 160,000 crowns. The province of Holftein has alfo experienced a iimilar calamity: the lofs is immenfe. By the Dutch Mail, which arrived on Monday, we have, from authority, the important fadt, that the Regency have fignified to the Baltic Company, that" as England and Pruffia had determined to " exert their whole force, in compelling Ruffia to " make peace with the Porte, the States General had " thought themfelves bound to co- operate with thefe " powers, their allies, to effectuate the fame end," TJy this intimation, the Baltic Company were put on their guard againft fending veffels into the Baltic, without infuring them againft war riGc. Cyclops is failed on the fame bufincfs _ Captain Bazeley has^ taken the^ command of the i, as taken leave of the Court of Direftors, and was expedled to fail for the Downs lall Wednefday. The total amount of the feveral branches of public revenue, under the heads of Cuftoms, Ex- cife, Stamps, and Incidents, for the laft week, is 287,9251. 6s. gd. There will be no review this year of the Train of Artillery at Woolwich, on account of the flower of them having been picked out for the various foreign fervices; but the Mailer General of the Ordnance is expedted in two or three days at the Watren to look at the Companies drafted for India fervice. They are expedted to embark about the joth inftant, in the Bridgewater. The following days and places are fixed on for the Spring Reviews by his Majefty .

The Right Hon. Henry Dundas, of Melville, Treafurer of the Navy, is chofen Governour, and Patrick Millar, Efq. of Dalfwinton, Deputy Go- vernor of the Bank of Scotland. Capt. Anthony Hunt, from the Half- pay lift, is appointed to command the Tyfiphone fireffiip, which accompanies the fteet to the Baltic, and is now fitting at Woolwich. On Thurfday laft, about midnight, as the mail- coaches were changing their luggage at Chefter, on account of an accident that had happened to one of them, a fmall box, containing a 1000 guineas in fpecie, and configned to the Lord Lieutenant of Ire- land, was completely carried off by fome perfon u'n- known. Laft Sunday died, at Beffelfleigh, near Oxford, where he had gone for change of air, in the 61ft ) « ear of his age, Dr. John Berkenhout, long difiin- guiffied in the literary world for his productions in various fciences. He had experienced many dif- ferent fituations of life; having in his youth been a Captain both in the Pruffian and Engliih fervice ; and in the year 1765 he took his degree of Dodtor of Phyfick in the Univerfity of Leiden. He went with the Commiffioners to America, where he was im- prifoned by the Congrefs, on which account he af- terwards enjoyed a penfion from Government. A letrer from Paris, dated April 2, fays, " The fituation of Monfieur Mirabeau the ELder, was, du- ring the whole of yellerday, the moft dangerous and critical; infomuch, that they expedted to receive every moment, the news of his death. At ten o'clock in the evening, the following Reportofhis health was publiffied : " After paffing a very bad day, the evening has been a little quieter. The blifiers applied to his arms, aided by the application of cupping glaffes and vola- tile alkali, are at laft become painful. His refpira- tion is fince become eafier, and lefs fhort. " They have been able to feel a gentle pulfation in his arms, efpecially in the right. The fpafms of his flomach are lefs fevere, and lefs frequent. His voice is become ftronger, and more diftindt. His head has all along been clear and Jree. His mufciilar force feems rather to increafe than dimi- nilh." In confequence of the uninamous vote of the Iriffi Houfe of Lords, that John Butler had proved his right to the titles of Earl of Ormond and Vifcount Thurles, his Majefty has been gracioufly plealed to diredt his writ to be iffued, fummoning the Earl of Ormond to Parliament. The Iriffi Parliament, having gone through all the Government bufinefs are not expedted to fit above a fortnight longer. Monday it was faid, that in the difpatches re- ceived by the French Government from the Mauri- tias, there were letters frcm Pondicherry, dated the 24th of Odtober, Hating that Tippoo Sultan had appeared with his horle on the rear of General Mea- dows, after he had paffed the Gauts, and that he had cut off his communication with the Carnatic.— Poffible as this rumour may be, we do not think that it is now given on probable authority, and we pub- lilh it only as we think ourfelves bound to make our readers acquainted with what occupies, for the day, the political circles. Count D'Artois is returned from Venice to Turin, and on the izth of March fet out to meet Mefdames, his Aunts, at the Foot of Mount Cenis, The Prince and Princefs of Piedmont were to follow him with a numerous retinue. The inhabitants of Calabria, are ftill kept in con- tinual alarm, by repeated earthquakes, by which much damage has been lately^ done to the towns and villages; and in various parts! the face of the coun- try has been materially changed. On Friday morning a young gentleman, in New- man- ftreet, fvvallowed a large quantity of arfenic. A phyfician was immediately called in ; but, though all poffible means were ufed fdr his recovery, he died in great agony abouc three in the afternoon. The caufe of this raffi adlion is not ^ et known. BANK MEETING. The Court of Bank Proprietors held laft week, having recommended to the Court of Diredtors to wait 011 Mr. Pitt with iheir refolution, offering to advance the fttm of 500,000!. provided the Minilter would withdraw this bill, the Governor and Deputy Governor on Tticfdav communi- cated to the Proprietors what had fince parted between them and Mr. Pitt, 011 thefnbjedl of that refolution. The Governor of the Bank faid, that the Minifter had on Monday evening addreffed a note to him and the Deputy Governor, which was accompanied by two claufes, which he propofed to them fliould make part of a new hill to be brought into Parliament, provided the Bnr. k and himfelf fhould agree to a compromile. That thefe were a fort of propofition to them for their confederation agiinft Tuefday morning, when the Governor and Deputy Governor had an interview with the Minifter in order to report his anfwer." In this converfation,. Mr. Pitt acquiefced in the propofal of the Bank to advance 500,000!. to Government, without intereft, until fuch time as the floating balance in its hands were below 600, cool, but hedefired this acquiefeence fhould not be underftood to give up the right of Government to it, but that on the contrary it fhould be confidered that the Legiflature had at all times the right to appropriate any further fums to the national ufe, whenever the floating balance of the Bank exceeded the fum of 700,0001. On this propofal of the Minifter, a very long conversation enftied, in which Lord Kennairdand fome other Gentlemen reprobated it in very ftrong terms, while others vviihed for a more modetate language, asitfeemed to be the general defire of the Court, that the bill ftiould be got rid of fome way or other, and therefore that harfh expreffions were not the moft likely means of conciliation. At length, on the motion of Mr. Chifwell, which palTed unanimoufly, the following re- folution in fubftance was adopted j— " That the Court of Proprietors do not think. it expedient to recommend to the Court of Diredtors to acquiefce in the opinion held out by the Minifter concerning the right of Government, & c. " That they recommend a reccmlideration of their former refolution offering a loan of 500,000!. to the nation without intereft', until the floating balance in the hands of the Bank ( hallbe below 500,000!. when fo much as is deficient of that fum, ( hall be refunded from the Exchequer, & c." Alderman Pickett gave notice that he fhould move for the lift to be printed of all dividends due from the ill of January 17.80, to 31ft of December 1789, in which opinion Mr. Harman and Mr. Chifwell agreed; and the latter thought that whenever a balance of Stock was transferred from one name to another, and that there was a dividend due on it, that notice of it ( hould be fent to the party to whom it belonged. The prefent was, however, not thought a pro- per feafon to bring this motion forward. - Adjourned SINE DIE. SHIP NEWS. DE At, April 1, Wind South. No Ihip in the Downs. April 2. WindN.

HOUSE of COM MO N S. There not being a fufficient rumberof Members affembled to ballot for the Downton Electicn Com- mittee, the, Speaker adjourned the Houfe. The following new prefentations were made to t! » e King at the Levee on Wednefday : l ord Charles Henry Somerfet, on his late appointment as one of the Gentlemen of the Prince of Wdes's Bed cham- ber, by Lord Southampton ; the f /. Mr. Willis, by the Lord in Waiting; Captain Brown, by Lord Vifcount Hinchinbroke, and Mr Gregory, by the Earl of Mount Edgecombe. On Wednefday Major General O'Hara killed the King's hand at the Levee, on his being appointed to the command of the 74th regiment of foot, vacant by the death of Sir Archibald Campbell; as did the Right Hon. Alderman Harley, on his late appoint- ment as Lord Lieutenant of the County of Radnor. The news of M. Mirabeau's death came by the Duke of Leeds's Courier, who left Paris on Friday at two o'clock. The rumour of it prevailed at the Prince of Wales's Levee 011 Monday, but we did not give credit to it, until we heard it authenticated on Tuefday morning. A little before his death he fent for the late Bilhop d'Autun, and exprefled his forrow at not being able attend the difcuffion on the law for eftablifking hkppinftfs was ftill frefk in his hund, applied to hit fon to write a pamphlet for him againft bis wife. The pamphlet was written by young Mirabeau againil his own mother ! It was entitled VAmi des Hommes j and the price of his labours was 100 Louis d'ors, which he received from his father. Hi3 mother complaining to him of the indecency of this filial- outrage, " Madame," fays young Mira- beau, " give me two hundred Louis d'ors, and I will write another pamphlet againft my father, in vindication of your chara£ ter." By a recent computation made by an ingenious gentleman, the number of inhabitants in M- anchefter and Salford, at the beginning of the prefent year, was fifty- five thoufand three hundred and fixty. foar — who have no pare in the tledlion of a Member of Parliament ! The cuftoms of the port of Peterfburgh were mort gaged by the Empreis, fome time fince, for money » carry 011 the war ; a circuinHance which, however, by no means proves any peculiar diftrefs, the taxes in alaioit every country in Europe being exprelsly appropriated to the public creditors. Jt appears by fomc late publications, that in pro- portion as the fand banks encreale oppofite Somerfet Buildings, the lower apartments will be additionally flooded. Sir William Chambers Ihouid pay great attention to this circumrtance, and apply to Par* fiament for leave to round oft" the elbow of land one hundred feet, and to prcferve a depth of ten or twenty feet at the lowell ebb. There is a large room in the neighbourhood of Rathbone Place occupied by the following curious affemblageTOf tenants :— From feven o'clock in the morning till five in the evening it is a fchool ; from a ftage ir4 a field between Packer atid a jew named Ifaacs, near the Star Inn upou Chatham hill, but, the incleniehcy of the weather prevented them; if if proves favourable, to- inorrow they are to fight then. Will Ward, Mendoza, and Johrfon, and many others of the bt uifmg tribe, are arrived here, and we hear the Star Inn is in future to be a fchool for this fcience." Yefterday the battle depending between Mofes Ifaacs and Robert Packer, took place on Chatham Hill. The ftage was erefted in a field near the Star and the combatants made their appearance about two o'clock. The Jew was attended by Mendoza and Lee, as- fcconds ; and Packer by William Ward and Butcher. They fet to about two o'clock. The bets, before a blow was ftruck, were two to one in favor of the Jew, and after a few rounds five to one. Packer was knocked down by ] iis antagonift feveral times ; but in the laft round which was not more than nine minutes from the commencement of the battle, he brought the Jew down and fell witji hin>, on which the Jew, though not apparently hurt, or fatigued, gave in. The company which were not numerous, exprefled their indignation at his conduct by hiding him as he left the ground. The bridge at Rochelter, over the Medway, built in the Gothic ftyTe in the reign of King Henry the Fourth, is as injurious to that fiver as that of London over the Thames : They both require re- building and the rivers improved. Extras of a letter from Deal, April 4. " Yellerday morning about half paft two o'clock, the Duke of York paffage boat, Rogers, Mafter, belonging to Dover, in her paflage from Dunkirk to that place, flruck- on the Goodwin Sands, where ( lie feven till twelve it is a hop, and frequented by all was difcovered at day light, lying apparently dry thejadies of eafy viruie ; and on Sundays a pulpit is and feveral perfons walking on the fands fear her ; thefe, afterw ards, on a Deal beat's eoing off to their affiftance, proved to be paffengdrs ( tlree ladies and four Gentlemen) who were informed by the Captain they were in no danger; « nd from the ferenenefs of the weather there did not appear to be any.

SEVERAL tradefmen in the city of Canterbury, wifliing to know from what authority thofe advertifements j originated, which dire& ed the market- people to carry their goods to Lady Wootton's Green, have difcovered, that they were in- ferted by a PETTIFOGGING ATTORNEY, without the far. ition or approbation of any principal farmer in or near Can- terbury.— The manner in which this LtMB OF THE LAW has impofed upon the public is this : — he has made it a practice, for the two laft weeks, to ride through the country villages col- lecting ( hillings and fixpences from all the OLD WOMEN who were weak enough to be duped by his palaver— and, under the pretext of indemnifying himfelf from the'expence of an advertife- roent, has - pceketed from 40s. to 5CS. each time, after the 5s. for the infertion has been paid.— The neceflities of this ITI- NERANT BUTTER- BASKET ATTORNEY may be fome apology to himfelf in thefe pitiful fhiftsto RAISE THE WIND ; but l'urely tbe fenfible country people, when their eyes are opened, will no longer be made the dupes of fuch manccuvres.— The mafter greateft precipitancy, and fortunate it was, that the Deal boat was alongfide, oi they muft otherwife have perifhed, as the veffel prefently after became baggage, The par- iii fafety, the We! » - gons. an entire wreck— very little part of the & c. which was valuable, could be faved. feogers, mailer, & c. were lauded here about two o'clock in the afternoon.

Earl Stanhope is gone to his country feat for the purpofe of trying his experiment of working a ftiip on a fmall conllruflion tCith fteam. By the laft accounts from Copenhagen, it appears that the Danith Cabinet has refolved to remain per-: feftly neuter, if the flames of war ftoald fpraed in the North. Though the King of Sweden has had offers made him by the oppofite parties likely to be engaged in a war, it is certain that he is not vet decided as to the meafures which he may hereafter adopt.' On a trial at the late Hereford affizes, it appeared that a parifh officer had paid different fums of money to poor men from other pariihes, to induce them to marry fuch unhappy women as were burthenfome, or likely to be fo, to his own. The rewards had been proportioned with much nicety to the degree of in- firmity in body or mind, by which the unfortunate objetts were diftinguifhed. The Judge moA feverely reprobated thb inhuman perverfion of a facred cere- mony ; and after fining the overfeer in the fum of ten pounds, ordered him to be confined one month in the common gaol.

' The following Anecdote of M. de Mirabeau will be the fareft trait we can give of his moral character.

Extract of a letter from Chatham,' April 4, " Orders are received to fit the Sandwich, of 90 guns, with all poflible expedition at this port, in order to lie at the Nore to receive impreffed men. " Tbe Dictator, of 64 guns, now at this port, but late a guardfhip in the Downs, is ordered to be fitted to lie as a guardihip at Sheernefs for the fame purpofe, till the Sandwich is ready to take her ftaiion at the Nore. The Diflator is afterwards to be re- fitted to lie again in the Downs, and Admiral Sir Richard King is to re- hoiil his fhg on board her; Admiral Dalrymple is to hoiit his flag on board the Sandwich at the Nore as foon as ( he is ready ; and no time is to be loft in fitting her for that liation.
