KINCARDINE. aT a numerous and Respectable MEETING of the NOBLEMEN, FREEHOLDERS, JUSTICES of the PEACE HERITORS of the County of Kincar- dine, assembled at stonehaven on the 19th day of January 1793, in consequence of an advertisement from the Sheriff- depute and Convener of said county, the Right Hon. LORD IMVERURY being called to the Chair, when the FOLLOW- ING RESOLUTIONS were moved by Alexander Burnet, Esq. of Strachan, Sheriff- depute, and leconded by Francis Russell, Esq. of Blackhall, and were UNANIMOUSLY a. greed to. 1. That, at this alarming crisis, when we hear that wick- ed and defsgning men are endeavouring, with great assiduity, to propagate in this island wild and levelling notions, sub- versive of all good government, and even of society itself, and which have given rise to such dreadful calamities in a neigh- bouring state— we feel it a duty incumbent upon us to exprefs in this public manner our firm attachment to the constitution of our country, and our sincere loyalty to our Sovereign. 2. Being fully sensible that the increasing prosperity of this country, and the blessings which we enjoy of just and equal laws, so mildly administered under our present Govern- ment, can only be maintained while good order and due sub- ordination prevail, we will to the utmost of our power assist the Magistrate to repress every appearance of turbulence; and will exert ourselves in our feveral capacities to prevent all seditious publications and discourses, and to bring their authors to examplary punishment. 3. That we highly disapprove of all associations or clubs which are set on foot under the specious pretext of obtaining for the lower ranks and labouring people greater advantages than what they at present possess, but which in reality tend only to instill into their mind, sentiments of disaffection to Go- vernment, and of discontent with their own situation, more favourable than that of any people on earth, and which Of course tend- to damp and depress that true spirit of industry and sobriety which can alone procure for them comfort and happiness;— and we will therefore discourage and discounte- nance, as far as lies in our power, all those in our different neighbourhoods who promote and frequent such affociations. 4- That the thanks of this Meeting are justly due to the Preses, for his proper conduct in the Chair, and to the She-. riff- depute and Convener, for having given them this oppor- tunity of expressing their sentiments.

RodeRiCK MACLEoD Esq. Provost, in the Chair. THE PROVOST and MAGISTRATES of the City of Old Aberdeen, having called the members of the Town Council, and requested the attendance of the Prin- cipal and Professors ofthe College, the Ministers, and Inha- bitants, in the Town- House this day, for the purpofe of gi- ving their sentiments on the PRESENT STATE of PUBLIC AFFAIRS, did unanimously agree to exprefs, in this public manner, their fincere attachment to the Conftitution of this country established at the Revolution, which under the go- vernment of King, Lords; and Commons, has excited the admiration and envy of surrounding nations; and which has not only fecured the liberty and property of individuals, but has promoted to an amazing degree the general profperity of tilt kingdom; and they are perfectly satisfied that, besides all the other advantages which this constitution enjoys, it has this peculiar excellence above all other forms of government, containing the principles by which any decay or corruption that may have crept into it, and to which every human in- stitution must be liable, can be repaired and corrected by lawful and constitutional means. It is therefore with sorrow that they see opinions propa- gated, and books circulated, which tend to make people dis- satisfied with and disaffected to our excellent Constitution, and to raise a spirit of equality and levelling, destructive of all order, security, and peace; and which however plausible in theory, are totally repugnant to the nature of man, and can never be reduced to practice in any well- regulated society.— under this conviction, they refolve to do every thing in their power to prevent such pernicious opinions from being pro- 3- For further particulars apply to Edward Bruce, clerk to the signet.

CRAWFURD, Jan 21. 1793. A T a MEETING of the residing HERITORS, MINISTER, and INHABITANTS of the Parish of CRAWFURD DOUGLAS, county of Lanark, in conse- quence ot former intimation thereof— The Meeting unanimously made choice of ARCHIBALD STIRLING, Esq. Leadhills, to be their Prefes, and TAMES M'QUEEN of Bellfield to be their Clerk— And the Meeting- having taken into consideration the prefent POLITICAL STATE of the COUNTRY, was happy to find, notwith standing the many seditious publications circulated by fac- tious and designing persons in that as well as in every other part of the united kingdom, that the greatest unanimity still prevails in that part of the country in which they reside, in sentiments ot loyalty to their King and Constitution as settled at the Revolution 1688, which defines, harmonizes, and thereby secures on the most solid foundation the rights of all ranks and denominations of men— It shelters the weak from the violence ot the strong; it delivers the poor from the op. pression ot the rich; and it protects the private individual from the injustice of the man in power. By this means it comes to pass, that the rich enjoy their property undisturbed, the poor the earnings of their labour unmolested, and all the rational exercise of their judgment undismayed. Thus are happily removed those groundlefs animosities which in some countries subsist between the different orders of society. It also opens a way to the exaltation of merit in every branch of business. The Nobleman possesses no eminence" to which the lowest of the people may not arrive; the son of the cot- tager may become Prime Minister to the Sovereign. Thus are the different ranks of life reconciled and cemented, and That grudge and envy arising from the obstacles which some Governments throw in the way of merit prevented. More- over, it secures the exercise of the established religion, and at the same time grants full toleration to all who dissent from the established religion to worship God according to their conscience. The members of said Meeting, being penetrated with a sense of these blessings, which they fhare in conjunction with their fellow subjects, and considering the whole as enforced The mild but steady Government of his present Majesty, think it their duty at this time to express their attachment to his royal person and government, and their determination to uphold, as far as in their power, that glorious Constitution which diffuses so much happiness. Thefe their sentiments they appoint to be signed by their Preses in their name, to whom the thanks of the Meeting are due for his attention during the course of the business, and the same to be published in the Edinburgh Evening Cou- rant, Mercury, Adverser, Herald, and Gazetteer. ( Signed) ARCH STIRLING, Preses CUPAR ANGUS, Jan. 11. 1793 AGREAT and respectable number Of the GENTLEMEN and FARMERS of the COUNTIES of PERTH and ANGUS having met here this day, did, with great unanimity and cordiality, express their firm and unalterable attachment to his MAJESTY and to the prefent happy CONSTUTION of Great Britain, consisting of King, Lords, and Commons— and resolved to exert their utmost en- deavours to maintain and promote that spint of loyalty and affeCtion to his Majesty, and of peace and good order in so- ciety, which has hitherto prevailed in this- part of the coun- try. Also appointed these their sentiments to be signed by Mun- go Murray, Esq. of Lintrose, their Preses, and published in the Edinburgh newspapers. The thanks of the Meeting were then given to Mr Mur- ray, their Preses, for calling them together, and for his con- stant attention to the interests of this part of the country. MUNGO MURRAY, Preses GLASGOW CONSTITUTIONAL ASSOCIATION Jan. 1792. / // AT a MEETING of the SUBSCRIBERS to the GLASGOW CONSTITUTIONAL ASSOCIA- TION, held this play in the Tontine Tavern, in conswquence of advertisements in the Newspapers, GILBERT HAMILTON, Esq. in the Chair, - The Chairman having stated, That as the intention of this Association was to check that unwarrantable spirit of LE VELLING REPUBLICANISM which had been indus- triously fomented in the country, by the distribution of many publications tending to raise a spirit of discontent among the people, and of disaffection to our present excellent Constitu- tion, it was necessary to form such rules and regulations as should appear to the Meeting best calculated to promote the design of the Society, and thereby to secure that peace and good order so necessary to the welfare of the community; and to appoint a Committee to carry thefe regulations into effect. The MEETING, therefore, UNANIMOUSLY agreed, That a Committee ihould be appointed of 24 Members, five of whom to be a quorum, who shall meet in the Ton- tine, so long as shall be found necessary, every Thursday e- vening at six o'clock, where all communications tending to promote the views of the Association will be thankfully re- ceived, and where such measures will be resolved on as may appear expedient for that, purpose. That the Committee shall appoint two of. their number in rotation, to procure the subscriptions of those who may approve of this Association and its views. That it be recommended to the Committee to be industri ous in distributing among the inhabitants of this city and neighbourhood all publications which may confirm them in _ their attachment to our present happy Constitution, and which may point out to those who have imbibed different senti- ments, the fallacy of the arguments used by seditious writers. With the view of perverting the unenlightened judgment of well- meaning men. That every exertion should be used, both by the Commit- tee and the individual Members, to prevent the further disse- mination of all writings tending to alienate the minds of the people from the present Government, and to show the dan. ger arising from the propagation of such pcrnicious doc trines. That, in order to carry these resolutions into effeCt, each Member shall pay into the Treasurer to be appointed such sum as he shall add to his subscription, in order to defray the expence of such publications as it may be thought proper to circulate, and such other charges as may necessarily attend this Association. That the Treasurer shall keep a distinct account of such sums as may be received, and of the charges paid out by him, to be laid before the Society; and that the Committee be empowered to call a General Meeting when they see proper. That the following persons be appointed Members of the • Committee. KINGSBARNS, Jan. 16. 1793. AVERY full and respectable MEETING of the GENTLEMEN, FARMERS, and other INHABI- TANTS of the Parish of Kingsbarns, was held here this day; and judging it their duty to declare their fentiments with respect to the PRESENT CONSTITUTION, under which they enjoy fo many invaluable blessings, at a time when the most wicked attempts have been made to mislead the unwary, by propagating levelling, dangerous, and repu- blican doctrines, UNANIMOUSLY came to the FOLLOW- ING RESOLUTIONS. That the Constitution of Great Britain is founded on most equitable principles, and supported by the most salutary laws.— That the Life, Liberty, and Property of every sub- jeCt is thereby protected; and the individual,- in whatever rank he is born, may, by virtue and talents, not only arrive to opulence, but fill the most honourable stations with pro- priety and respect. As loyal subjects, sensible of such privileges, we do here- by declare our firm and unalterable resolution to support the present Conditution, so happily established in King, Lords, and Commons at the Revolution ; and we pledge ourselves to support and assist, to the utmost of our power, the Civil Magistrate in maintaining peace and good order, and in op- posing any inflammatory or seditious writings that may have a tendency to interrupt the harmony of the community, be- ing assured that by so doing, we attend to the true interest of our Country, and are the Real Friends of the People. That the thanks of this Meeting be given to the Preses, the Rev. James Beatson, and Methven Erskine of Cambo, Efqrs. for their particular attention to this important bufinefs. DAVID ERSKINE, Preses.

Resolved, That as the peace and prosperity of these king- dom's depend upon a strict obedience to the laws from all ranks of men, wc declare that we will use our utmost en- deavours to support every conftitutional authority, and to discourage and suppress all seditious publications, tending to disturb the peace of society, and to introduce Republican and levelling principles respecting Government, which must lead to anarchy with all its evils. Resolved, That upon a regular and constitutional applica- tion being made, we trust that the cautious hand of a pru- dent Legislature will be ever ready to redress and amend any real grievances, and to use the proper means of removing any blemish which may have crept into the original frame of our most excellent Constitution. Resolved, That these resolutions be left in the Council- house, that the whole inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood may have an opportunity of declaring their loyalty and attach- ment to the King and the Constitution by signing the same ; and that they afterwards be published in the Edinburgh Cou- rant, Mercury, and Advertiser, and also in the London Chronicle and Evening Post.

[ The substance of the Will of Louis was given in our lad; the following is a fuller and more accurate translation, which, although in some measure a repetition, will doubtless be ac- ceptable to our readers. J In the name of the Holy Trinity, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost : This day, the 21st day of Dec. 1792, I, Louis the XVI. of that name, King of France, having been for more than four months shut up with my family in the Tower of the Temple at Paris, by those who were my subjects, and de- prived of every kind of communication with my Fa- mily since the 11th of this month ; and being more- over involved in a trial, of which, from the passions of mankind, it is impossible to foresee the event, and for which neither pretext nor precedent can be found in any existing law; having no witness of my thoughts but GOD, and no one but him to whom I can address myself, I here declare, in his presence, my last will and sentiments. I leave my soul to GOD, my Creator : I implore him to receive it in his mercy, and not to judge it according to its merits, but according to those of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, who offered himself as a sacrifice to GOD, his Father, for us men, unworthy as we were, and especially myself. I die in the Communion of our Catholic, Apostolic, and Roman Mother Church, which holds its powers by an un- interrupted succession from ST PETER, to whom JE- SUS CHRIST had entrusted them. I firmly believe, and I confess, all that is contained in the Com- mandments of GOD and the church— in the sacra- ments and mysteries which the church teaches, and has always taught. I have never presumed to make myself a judge as to the different manners of explain- ing the doCtrines which divide the church of JESUS CHRIST ; but I have always referred myself, and shall always refer myself, if GOD shall grant me life, to the decisions which the superior ecclesiastics united to the holy Catholic Church give, and shall give, conformably to the discipline of the church, follow- ed since JESUS CHRIST. I lament with my whole heart our brethren who may be in error: But I do not presume to judge them ; and I do not the less love them all in JESUS CHRIST, agreeably to what Christian charity teaches us. I implore GOD to pardon me all my sins. I have endeavoured scrupulously to know them, to detest them, and to humble myself in his presence. Not having it in my power to avail myself of the ministry of a Catholic priest, I implore God to re- ceive the confession which I have made to him; and, above all, my profound repentance for having put my name ( although it was contrary to my will) to those acts which may be contrary to the discip- line and the belief of the Catholic church, to which I have always remained sincerely united in my heart " implore GOD to receive the firm refoiution I en- tertain, fhould he grant me life, to avail myself, as soon as it shall be in my power, of the ministry of Catholic priest, to accuse myself of all my sins, and to receive the sacrament of penitence. I beseech all those whom by inadvertence I may have offended ( for I do not recolleCt ever knowing- ly to have committed an offence against any one), or those to whom I may have given a bad example, or occasion for scandal, to pardon me the evil which they think I may have done them. I beseech all those who have charity, to unite their prayers to my own, to obtain from GOD the pardon of my sins. I pardon, with my whole heart, those who have made themselves my enemies, without my having given them any cause ; and I pray to GOD, that he will pardon them, as well as those who, by a false zeal, or by a zeal ill understood, have done me much evil. I recommend to GOD, my wife, my children, my sister, my aunts, my brothers, and all those who are attached to me by the ties of blood, or in any other manner whatsoever. I especially implore GOD to cast the eyes of his mercy upon my wife, my children, and my sister, who have for so long a time suffered with me— to support them by his grace,- should they happen to lose me, so long as they shall remain in this perish- able world. I recommend my children to my wife; I have never doubted of her maternal tenderness for them. I recommend to her to make them good Christians, and honest ; to induce them to consider the gran deurs of this world should they be condemned to make trial of them) as no other than dangerous and perishable possessions; and to turn their view to the only solid and durable glory of eternity. I beseech my sister to be pleased to continue her tenderness to my children, and to supply to them the place of mother, should they have the misfor- tune to lose their own. I beseech my wife to forgive me all those evils which she suffers for me, and the uneasinesses which I may have given her in the course of our union ; as she may be assured, that I retain nothing in my mind respecting her, should she imagine that she has any reason to reproach herself with respect to me. I earnestly recommend to my children, after what they owe to God, which they ought to consi- der as prior to every thing else, to remain always united among themselves, submissive and obedient to their mother, and grateful to her for all the pains she takes for them, and in memory of me. I beseech them to consider my sister as a second mother. I recommend to my son, should he have the misfortune to become a King, to refleCt that he owes himself entirely to the happiness of his fel- low- citizens ; that he ought to forget all hatred and resentment, and especially all which has a reference to the misfortune and miseries which I experience that he cannot effect the happiness of his people, but by reigning according to the laws; but that, at the same time, a King cannot make those respcCt ed, or do the good which is in his heart, unless he possess the necessary authority ; and that otherwise being confined in his operations, and commanding no respeCt, he is more hurtful than useful. I recommend to my son to take care of all those persons who have been attached to me, as far as the circumstances in which he may find himself shall give him an opportunity ; to refleCt that this is a sacred debt which I have contracted towards the children or relations of those who have perished for my sake, and towards those who have become miserable on my account. I know there are several persons in the number of those who were attached to me, who have not behaved towards me as they ought to have done, and who have even shewn ingratitude towards me : But I forgive them ( for, in the moments of trouble and effervescence, one is not always master of one's self); and I beseech my son, should he find an op- portunity, to refleCt only on their misfortunes. I wish I could here testify my thankfulness to those who have manifested towards me a true and disin- terested attachment.-— On the one hand, if I have been sensibly affected by the ingratitude and disloyal- ty of those to whom I have never acted but with kindness, as well to themselves as to their relations and friends ; on the other, I have had the consola- tion to see the voluntary attachment and interest which many persons have shewn me. I beseech them to receive all my thanks for this : In the situ ation in which things yet are, I should fear to com- mit them, were I to speak more explicitly ; but I especially recommend to my son, to seek opportu- nities of being able to acknowledge them. I should, however, conceive, that I calumniated the sentiments of the Nation, were I not openly to recommend to my son M. M. de CHAMILLY and HUE, whose sincere attachment to me has induced then to shut themselves up with me in this sorrowful a— bode, and who have been in danger of becoming the unhappy victims of that attachment. I also re- commend to him CLERY, with whose attention I have every reason to be satisfied since he has been with me, as he is the person who has remained with me to the end. I beseech M. de la Commune to deliver to him my EffeCts, my Books, my Watch, and the other little articles of my Property, which have beea deposited with the Conseil de Commune. I moreover fully pardon those who have guarded me— the ill- treatments and harshness which they have thought it their duty to use towards me. I have found some feeling and compassionate souls : May these enjoy in their hearts that tranquillity to which their mode of thinking should entitle them ! I beseech M. M. de MALESHERBES, TRONCHET, and DESEZE, to receive here my utmost thanks, and the expression of my sensibility, for all the pains and trouble they have been at on my account. I conclude by declaring, before GOD, and being ready to appear before him, that I do not reproach myself with any of those crimes which have been charged against me.

Sir WILLIAM FAWCETT sent off letters last night to the Colonels Commanders of the different regi- ments of cavalry, to get their troops ready for im- mediate service. Should Government accept the offer of the DUKE of GORDON to raife a regiment of Highlanders, the command will most probably be given to the MAR- QUIS of HUNTLY. The Princess Royal of France, it is very posi- tively said, died. at eleven o'clock on Monday even- ing ; murdered by an inattention to her situation the most inhuman. She was just turned of fourteen. As our Court has ordered an etiquette mourning for Louis XVI. there can be little doubt that the people will, as one man, clothe themselves in a garb expressive of their detestation of his murderer:. The KING'S will is a most eloquent and affecting composition; and is no less honourable to the ta- lents than the virtues of the unfortunate testator. If the hundredth part of the precautions had been taken on the 2d of September, which were used on the fatal day of the butchery of the KinG, the prisons of Paris would never have been drench- ed with blood. The shops were shut during the greatest part of the day. Few carriages were seen, and few women went out of their houses. The streets, filled with armed men, recalled each mo- ment to remembrance the idea of the dangers of the country. The mode in which LA FAYETTE is treated in his confinement, is said to originate in the assurance that he acted with double hypocrisy on the occasion of the escape of the late KING of FRANCE and QueEN — first, in permitting them to depart, and then in betraying their flight, and procuring them to be stopped when they began to think themselves se- cure. If this is the case, and of this it is said the QUEEN of France is satisfied, he deserves every pu. nishment he has suffered, and more. Monday, Jan. 21. 1782, the Parisians gave to Louis a superb feast at the Place de Greve ; the place resounded with the cries, Vive le Roi, bien aime, or " Long live our beloved Monarch!" On Monday, January 21, 1793, the same Louis XVI. mounted the Scaffold, and cries for his death descended with him to the grave. Letters from Calvi, in Corsica, give details of the wreck of French ships lately mentioned as ha- ving happened in the Mediterranean. The tempest was on the 21 st of December, several ships were da- maged, but only one frigate, the Pearl, lost. She failed from Toulon on the 18th, with 180 passen- gers, who, with the crew, were saved. Advices from Naples state that the French fleet in the Mediterranean, commanded by M. LA- TOUCHE TREVILLE, has been almost destroyed by a dreadful tempest. Two ships of the line are said to be lost, and the LANGUEDOC of 90 guns, the flag ship, dismasted, and in a most shattered condition, has been obliged to take shelter in the port of Naples. It is not known what is become of the rest. The Genevese protest against French liberty, and look to England, " that great, good, and generous people," as they stile them, to proteCt and preserve them from the " cruel misfortune" of becoming French Citizens. In most parts of France, Assignats are at forty per cent. discount; and every other article, both ne- cessaries and luxuries, are increased in value. The frost in Germany has been so intense, that the Rhine and Maeze have for some time been fro- zen over. FRANCE. NATIONAL CONVENTION. WEDNESDAY, Jan. 23. At one o'clock, it was decreed that the Funeral of De- puty MICHAEL PELLETIER should be celebrated at the expence of the nation. That the National Convention, the Executive Council, arid the Administrative and Judiciary Bodies, should as- sist at this ceremony.

The following letter was sent to all the Paris Journals on the day of the condemnation of the butchered MO- NARCH, and inserted in the greater part of them : " TO ALL THE JOURNALISTS. " Penetrated with horror, I declare as a simple French citizen, that, according to my opinion, the sentence of the National Convention, which condemns to Death the ci- devant King, Louis XVI. is both infamous and iniquitous. I conceive that the public will is sufficient to absolve me from the oath which attached me to our Constitution; but a retroactive effeCt, contrary to my oaths, can be no other than a perjury. I protest against the impunity of the massacres committed in the month of September. " This is what my conscience imposes on me as a duty to publish ' Tis what I wish to transmit to my contem- poraries, and from generation to generation, to the latest posterity. FRANCOIS AURSDENESTE.

It may be truly said of them, " that they were lovely in, their lives, and in their deaths they have not been divided." A private letter from London, received by this day's post, mentions, that an express arrived there on Friday afternoon, with an account, that the Duke of ORLEANS, and twenty others, members of the Convention, who voted for the KING'S death, were massacred. A formidable band of honest men in the metro- polis of France, had bound themselves by a most solemn engagement, at the peril of their own certain destruction, to exterminate from the face of the earth ORLEANS, and the other heads of the faction of Re- gicides. What must be the complexion of character of the prefent French Notional Convention, when, amongst its Members, we behold THOMAS PAINE compara tively acting the part of a moderate man ? Last night, about eleven o'clock, an old gentle man was attacked by two fellows dressed in dark coloured cloaths, in the road leading from Cross causeway to Nicolson's Street, and robbed of a metal watch.

You have conspir'd against our Royal Person, Join'd with an enemy, and from his coffers Receiv'd the golden earnest of our death ; Wherein you would have sold your KING to slaughter His Princes and his Peers to servitude, His subjects to oppression and contempt, And his whole kingdom unto desolation! KING OF ENGLAND. ( As dreaded by the French.) In his Royalty of Nature Reigns that that would be fear'd And to the dauntless temper of his mind He hath a Wisdom that doth guide his Valour To act in safety.— There is none but he Whose being I do fear. tended and imaginary grievances; that they have not made them dream of abuses that are only to be found in such books; and that they have not led them to call that new which is almost as old as the hills, and to give bad names to things that do not deserve them. J . The third reason they assign for expressing their love for our Constitution is, that they very much disapprove of war.—- They surely do not speak of war in general, of which I and every man must disapprove, and wish to avoid if possible. Nor do they allude to a war carried on fifty or a hundred Years ago? or to one- that may take place a century hence, they must refer to that war which, I see from your Cou- rant, we are preparing for, in case the French should force us to enter into it. Now, Sir, I have read in your newspaper the State Papers, as they are called, delivered to and by the British Secretary, relative to the circumstances which may pro- ducc this war. It is to me as clear as sunshine, that the French, whilst they profess the contrary, are violating the . rights of Holland— are invading her territory, and through that terri- tory sailing up a river with armed ships, in spite of her de- clarations against their doing so. They are violating treaties to which Britain is a party; whilst they are at the same time conquering country after country, and reducing them to be provinces, or, as they call them, Departments of France. If they go. on in that way, they will soon be all- powerful and irresistible; and when by the conquest of Holland the Dutch fleet is joined to theirs, and their dominions rendered exten- sive and immense, they may invade and abuse us at their pleasure. They are indeed now taking upon them to dic- tate to all Europe, and are' using our allies and us in such a domineering way, that I would not submit to the like from one of my best cuftomers. I therefore agree with the Forfar people ( if that is their meaning), that, unless the French act in a different manner from that in which they have been and are now acting, they will render a War with Britain " unavoidably necessary;" and I agree with the people of Montrofc, that we must in these circumstances take up arms in self- defence, and because the safety and interest of this nation are at stake." Indeed, Sir, it has always been a sacred rule of mine to adhere strictly to bargains or agreements, or as kingdoms and states call them— treaties; and this is always for one's interest in the long run. Besides, at present we can- not be safe, if the French go on in the way they are now doing. In the same newspaper I also observe an advertisement from Dundee; which gives me the satisfactory intelligence that there has not been any insurrection or riot in that town. But before I know perfectly what to think about this— as I have been of late much bewildered by strange meanings put upon words— I should wish to know if there was n0 mob there, no breaking of windows, nor any attempt by a mob to introduce or express approbation of French practices, which from small beginnings get to a great height, and which have produced so much murder and so many other crimes in that unhappy country. If these things did not happen in Dundee ( on the report of which I was told the dragoons went there from this neighbourhood), then I shall be satisfied there was not any insurrection or riot about political matters in that place. Before sending away this letter, I shewed it to a student who came into my shop, and who made some change upon the wording of some parts of it. I am, Sir, Your humble servant, Luckenbooths, Jan. 23. 1793. A GLOVER. P. S. If you or any of your readers want gloves, I can sup- ply you and them 0n moderate terms. I do not pretend to be able to make or mend Constitutions, but I may safely say I can make gloves, which will fit and wear well; and I have been told it is a good quality in a constitution, as it is in a glove, that it should fit the wearer, and wear well. V. EdinburGH EvENING Courant To th; PRINTER of the SlR, FROM tbe attention I am obliged to give to my oWn bu siness, I have not time to read newspapers carefully. In yours, which is almost the only one I ever see, there are now often advertisements about supporting the British Constitu- tion, which, from the great noise that has lately been made by some meetings in this place, I feel myself inclined to look at when I have leisure to do so. In your Monday's Courant I observed two such advertisements, the one from Forfar, and the other from Montrose; and I should be glad you or any of your readers would help me- out of a difficulty I am in, as I do not understand the meaning, which is probably owing to my own dullness and want of comprehension. The persons at these meetings- declare their zealous and sincere attachment to our Constitution ; and, as far as I can Observe or understand their meaning, they assign three rea- sons for this attachment. The first is, that our Constitution abounds with abuses, is productive of grievances, and that dangerous innovations have crept into it, which call aloud for a reform. The second reason is, that the late writings on government ( which I have heard were very wicked) give in these places no real cause for alarm. The third reason for expressing their attachment to our Constitution seems to be that they do not approve of a war, into which we are likely. in defence of that Constitution, to be forced by a nation which has declared itself the enemy of our Constitution, and of all Governments at the head of which there is a King. As to the first of these three observations, I cannot disco- ver why it should have been brought in as a reason for meeting of such a kind expressing their attachment to the British Constitution ; nor, even if it had been mentioned on a different occasion, would I have been able to understand its meaning without fome explanation. General declarations about grievances are easily put into Writing; but before any person can know whether the grievances referred to are real or fanciful, the particulars complained of must be mentioned, On asking a gentleman who came into my shop yesterday what such words meant ( without telling him I had seen the Resolutions from Montrose and Forfar, for fear he should think me too idle if I took up my head with such advertise- ments), he said they might have an hundred different mean- ings : That one of the meanings lately put on the word reform was the same as that of the word revolution: That there were people who thought it a grievance not to be able to get quit of our national debt by the ruin of our honest creditors ; That it was sometimes thought an abuse, that every man who had a head on his shoulders had not, as in France, a right to vote in elections; where that fine scheme had produced, was still producing, and would continue to produce much anarchy and bloodshed— And he added, that, by dangerous innovations, some meant useful customs esta- blished at leaft for a century. For my own part, Sir, 1 do not understand these matters; but as I am sure such was not the meaning of the people of Montrose and Forfar, I only wish they may; have understood exactly what they meant themselves; and I also wish that they had expressed their Re solutions so as to have made their meaning clear to their fel- low subjects. The second circumstance made mention of is, that the late writings 0n Government give no real cause for alarm in that part of the country. This I am heartily glad to hear; for customer of mine, when trying on a pair of gloves not long ago. told me, that though the bulk of the people there were sound yet there were more persons discontented and tainted with these new doctrines in that quarter than in any other in Scot- land. But I am happy to learn that it is not so, and that the writings of Paine, which ( as you know, Sir) are full of false- hood, nonsense, end impiety, have ( if read there) been con demned and reprobated as they ought certainly to be by every good man who has common sense.

SUTER, Clk - HADDINGTON / Jan. 11. 1793. AT a MEETING of the COMMITTEE of FARMERS of the County of EAST LOTHIAN, held here this day, after electing . Mr ROBERT BROWN of MARTLE, Chairman, __ The Meeting took into consideration the report made by phe Committee of Landed; Gentlemen to the General Meet- ing of the County, upon the plan drawn by the Tenants for the future management of the BYE ROADS, and after ma- ture deliberation, the following RESOLUTIONS were adop- ted, and ordered to be published in the Edinburgh newspapers-. Resolved, tma That the Sub- Committee of Tenants have been treated in a very improper manner by the Committee of Landed Gentlemen, and that a refusal to hear them in defence of their plan, after previous appointment for their attendance had been made in their Minutes, was disrespect- ful to the whole Tenants of this County, and reflects disho- nour upon the Gentlemen themselves. 2do, That the Tenants, by their plan for the management of the bye roads, wanted to throw no part of the burden off themselves; they wanted only the Gentlemen to contribute in a proportionible manner for their horses and carriages, to the support of the roads they get benefit by, and that the claim made by the Tenants for a share of the management proceeded entirely from their knowledge of the former mis- application of the Statute work, and a conviction it will ne- ver be better guided under the present system. 3tio, That the Meeting will persevere in their endeavours to have the Statute work put under better regulation, than what it is at present, and as the standing order of the House of Commons deprive them of an opportunity of redress this Session of Parliament, that the Committee do meet upon the second Tuesday of July, to consider the propriety of applying to Parliament, for leave to bring in a bill to amend and ex- plain the Statute Labour Act. 4to That James Wilkie, Esq. in particular, Richard Som- ner, Esq. and Doctor George Barclay, have shewn themselves to be the Friends of the Tenants, and that the Thanks of this Committee be given to these three Gentlemen. That, as the Road Bill formed by the Gentlemen of this County, is to go before Parliament, with the additional Toll Bars included, the meeting will, agreeable to the pow- ers given them by the General Meeting of Tenants, oppose It in all its stages, and that the necessary means be immedi- ately used for rendering this opposition strong and effectual. 6tn, That, as it is inconvenient for the Committee to meet To often as this opposition would require, a Subcommittee of nine members be appointed, five of whom to be a quorum, and that the sub- committee, consist of the following persons, viz. Messrs. Robert Brown, Martle ; George Renny, Fanta- cy ; William Hunter, Knolls; John Sheriff Captainhead; Andrew Pringle, Ballencrieff Mains; William Mackee, Or- miston; John Brodie, Whittingham; Alexander Sawers,' Hall- hill; and George Mylne, Lochill. 7to That the Sub- committee shall have the immediate di- rection of the opposition to the Road Bill, and shall convene the' General Committee as often as any matters of import- ance require it. Lastly, That to account of defraying the expence of this opposition, the sum of five shiliings per plough be paid as soon as possible by all the tenants, who subscribed the reso- lutions of 16th November last, and that the Clerk do forth- with make up a scheme of the respective sums each tenant has to pay, which he is hereby authorised to receive.

OTTERY OFFICE, W A M P H R A Y, Dec. 1792. WE, the' HERITORS and INHABITANTS of the PARISH of WAMPHRAY, in the shire oF Dumfries— alarmed at the spirit of innova- tion which appears to have seized a number of unthinking persons in the kingdom, and the uncommon industry with which seditious writings have been circulated, with a view to inflame the minds of the people of Great Britain against lawful authority, to deceive them out of their invaluable li- berties, and to shake their fidelity to the best of Sovereigns, and the most perfect human System of Government that ever existed in the world— think it our indispensable duty to DE- CLARE, That we are resolved to contribute our best en- deavours to support our present happy Constitution, to pre- serve peace and good order, and to the utmost of our power to oppose every attempt that may be made by the enemies of our peace and of our country to overturn or disturb the esta- blished Government. SUBSCRIPTION PAPERS are left at the School- house of Wamphray, to give an opportunity to people who were necessarily absent to subscribe. BURGH OF WICK, Jan 4, IN a MEETING of MERCHANTS, FISHING ADVENTURERS, BURGESSES, and other Inhabi- tants of the Burgh of Wick, called by the Magistrates, for the purpose of expressing their sentiments on the PRESENT STATE of the COUNTRY; when Mr WILLIAM MAC- LEAY, Chief residing Magistrate, in absence of the Provost, being unanimoully called to the Chair, the following DE- CLARATIONS and RESOEUTIONS were entered into— That being sensible of the blessings and privileges we enjoy under our present happy Constitution and mild Govern- ment, the best that human wisdom ever devised, it is with indignation we hear that there are Associations in different parts of the kingdom, under the fallacious appellation of " The Friends of the People," who, by their wicked and seditious writings and publications, endeavour to spread doctrines of the most dangerous tendency, with a view to excite discon- tents, tumults, and disorders, in this realm. ido, That though little or none of that seditious spirit has crept so far North as the place of our residence ( unless a- mongst two or three individuals), yet we cannot but express our abhorrence at any attempt to disseminatc principles ini- mical to the Constitution as presently established in King, Lords, and Commons; and we declare, that we will not on- ly collectively, but individually, support the Civil Magistrate in suppressing all seditious writings that may appear amongst us, and in bringing the authors or venders thereof to a due sense of their error; and we pledge ourselves, that we will suppress and discountenance all unlawful meetings and assem- blies, whether public or private, which may meet for the purpose ofsfubverting a Constitution so beneficial to the com- munity, and which has stood the test of ages.

Extracted from the record, by KOB. CAMPBELL, Clerk of Supply, nd FARMERS of the CF. S of the COUNTRY, UNANIMOUSLY concurred in the FOLLOWING DECLARATION, which they appoint- ed to be publilhed in the Edinburgh Evening Courant and Advertifer. WE, the Magistrates and Town- Council of the burgh of Newburgh, feel ourselves called upon at this juncture, pu- blicly to expreft our loyalty to the King, our attachment to the Constitution, and our reverence for the Laws of the Bri- tish Empire. From our early years, we have been accustomed to admire the form of our Government, esteeming it the immediate cause of our continued security and growing prosperity as a nation; and notwithstanding the late insinuations of discon- tented men, and novel theories of speculative writers, we still consider the Legislative Authority, vested by it, in King, Lords, and Commons, adequate to all the purposes for which men unite in civil society. Holding these principles, we cannot but deem thofs per- sons enemies to the happiness of the inhabitants of Great . Britain and its dependencies, who endeavour by any means to lessen the value of this Constitution in the estimation of the people; and we will exert ourselves in our several spheres, to the utmost of our abilities, in counteracting the effects of their political misrepresentations, and in promoting due sub- mission to the laws. Although prevented by our situations from becoming ver- sant in matters of state, we yet find ourfelves at no loss in distinguishing between the insidious attempts of some despa- _ rate men who seek the ruin of their country, and the virtu- ous efforts of many judicious patriots who employ their in- fluence in advancing its prosperity and glory. Our attention is fixed on the great Council of the Nation ; and we rejoice in the repeated proofs which it has already given of unanimity in its important deliberations. While the Three Estates of Parliament continue firm and united, we trust, that we shall have nothing to fear from the attacks of domestic or foreign enemies. But should we be disappointed in our expectations, and « _ any circumstances arise to render our most strenuous interpo- lation for the protection of our Constitution, as settled at the Revolution necessary; we are not insensible to the worth of our privileges, and we will be ready to defend them at the hazard of our properties and lives.

The Meeting having unanimoully made choice of Mr Low for their Preses, proceeded to take into their considera- tion the purpose of their being called together. They resolved unanimously, that the Hynds, Herds, and Lotmen in this county are not in general entitled to a great advance of wages, as their gains being in kind rise with the prices of every thing; but as the wages of work people are rising, they agree to give their Hynds an advance of their gains in money by an addition of sheep money, and this ad- vance to be made at the discretion of the master to diligent and industrious servants. They further unanimously resolved not to hire any Hynds in the public markets in Dunse or Kelso till the first market days ot March next, and thereafter in March yearly; and that they will not hire any servants without a character from the masters they last served, and that they will not let any cot- houses till the hiring days are over. The Meeting unanimously resolved to embrace this oppor- tunity of expressing their entire disapprobation of the late ri- ots occasioned by the erecting of Tolls in the county, and declare that they will, at all times give the Civil Magistrate every assistance in their power to cheek all tumults or riots that may tend to set at defiance the laws or disturb the peace of this country. They appoint these Resolutions to be inserted ir. the Edin- burgh and Kelso newspapers, and likewise circulated thro' the country as expeditiously as possible ; and request that such heritors and farmers as have not had an opportunity of attend- ing this meeting will signify their adherence to the forego- ing resolutions by letters addressed to Mr Bell, clerk to the" Meeting.

RESOLVED, That the convulsed state of Europe, and the alarming appearances of a disposition in designing men to excite un- easiness in the minds of the subjects of this free and happy realm, call lor every good man's instant appearance to de- clare his support of the present Constitution and Govern- ment of this country, as established of King, Lords, and Commons; and his abhorrence of every attempt to inno- vate upon it. That, therefore, with our lives and fortunes we will main- tain that Government and Constitution. That in this Country there is at present every appearance of attachment to Government and to our happy Constitu- I tion ; yet should any attempt be made to alienate the affec- tions of his Majesty's loyal subjects by incendiary and sedi- tious writings, we will, to the utmost of our power, not on- ly prevent the circulation of such writings, but endeavour to bring such persons as may dare to publish them to legal pu- nishment. That if there exist any imperfection in our excellent Con- stitution, or if any slight deviations from its original prin- ciples may be discovered, which might require the wisdom of Parliament to be applied for their amendment, we confi- dently rely on the application of that wisdom in proper sea- son, and in such manner as the united branches of the Con- stitution shall judge expedient. That the public and private character of our excellent King, ( whom GOD long preserve) has been great, good, and exemplary ; and in a particular manner, commands our gratitude and thanks from the heart. That a loyal address to the Throne be framed, expressive of thefe sentiments, and that it be signed by the Presses of the Meeting. That it be transmitted to the Right Hon. Henry Dundas, one of his Majesty's Secretaries of State, in a letter from the Preses, to be by Mr Dundas laid before the King. IThat the thanks of this Meeting be given to the Preses and Convener for their attention to the business of the Meet- ing. That these resolutions, with the names of the persons composing this meeting, be published in the Edinburgh and London news- papers. Signed in name and by appointment of the Meeting, by their said Preses, AENEAS MACKINTOSH Preses.
