MUIR AND PALMER. . The order of the day being read, Earl Lauderdale said, the best apology which he could make for the present intrusion, was the feelings of gratitude which he had for those who had so peculiarly honoured him, by de- legating to him that trust, which enabled him to stand forth their advocate on the present occasion. His attention, be said, was the more awakened to the late extraordinary pro- ceedings on the trials of Mess. Muir and Palmer in Scotland, when he considered the nature and extent of their extraordi- nary punishments, and compared them with what had oc- curred in similar cases in this country. Such considerations, he said, induced him to enquire anxiously, and investigate deeply, if any thing antecedent had taken place to justify or vindicate the sentences that followed these trials ? but all his researches were vain. He was one of those, he professed, that held it improper to oppose the constituted authorities; but stretches of power may sometimes occur, that justified in- dividuals in reforming to where they may receive an abate- ment of their oppressors. There were three points in them, to - which he wished to call their Lordships attention. The construction of the indictment— the objection to the evidence— and the deprivation of the evidence of William Russel. In the major proposition, there Was nothing but what was ver- bal; in the minor proposition, there was nothing that went beyond the charge of leasing- making, His Lordship argued, that these Gentlemen's conduct was calculated merely to Ob- tain a Reform in Parliament. He insisted, that, agreeable to the indictment. they could not be accused of constituting meet- ings to subvert Government., or calling the people together, for the purpose of making seditious specches; of this they were not accused in the indictment, though they were found guilty, on their trials of those very practices which had not been charged in the bill.— They were also charged with en- deavouring to create rebellion; but this was treason, and . if included in the libel, he asked, Why did not the punish- ment incurred by such conduct follow ? His Lordship said, in the first instance, that he would move for certain papers to be laid on the table, which, if agreed to, he would have the honour of submitting other propositions founded on thofe, to their Lordships. Lord Lauderdale next en- - larged on a variety of precedents, on which Mr Adam had amply argued on the same question in the House of Com- mons ; and after a most animated review of the whole sub- ject, and particularly discussing the exercise of discretion in the Scotch Judges, with respect to the sentences passed by them, even admitting they had the right contended for, ; concluded with moving for copies of the record of the in- dictments against Mess. Muir and Palmer, for a copy of the warrant of commitment against John Russel, and of the mi mites of the decision by which the Lord Advocate was per- mitted to go into general evidence against the defendant — His Lordship also moved for an Address to his Majesty in behalf of Mess. Muir and Palmer. The Earl of Mansfield entered into a very learned disqui- sition, to prove that the crime itself for which those gentle nun had been tried and convicted, was not the statute crime of leasing- making, but that known the the common law of Scotland, of sedition, which crime left its punishment not precise or confined, but arbitrary, or, according to English ideas, in the breast and discretion of the Judges.. With re- spect to the punishment itself of transportation, as contra-, distinguished from simple banishment, his Lordship entered int> a detail of a variety nt precede at a of convictions, and sentenees of tranfportatiou., inflicted in consequeuce, thereof, at different periods; from which he argued that that pu- nishment was actually known, not only in the old Roman law, which, by adoption, was the common law of Scot- land, but also actually acted. upon, and carried into execu- tion, by the different tribunals' in Scotland. . Lord Kinnoul, upon the same side, entered on a detail of precedents, all of which, his Lordship contended, were a complete justification both of the principles and practice- pur- sued on the present occasion. The Lord Chancellor said, that the Noble Earl, who had spoken last but one, had, in his opinion, stated the question so clearly and precisely, and argued it so ably, that it cer- tainly was both unnecessary and impossible' for him to add any thing thereto. There were, however, certain, minor points to which he thought it proper to - advert, thereby o- verturning those parts of the arguments of the noble mo- ver, which had, by being overlooked, remained Unrefuted. The first of these was the objection made to the refusal of the challenge made by the defendants to the Jury. What were the grounds of this objection ? That five of the Gen- tlemen upon the Jury were of the Goldsmith's Hall Associa- tion, who had declared their aversion to the crime of sedi- tion, and their determination to resist the attempts, and pu- nish the authors. If this were a good ground of objection, as well might a highwayman have ground of challenge against one of an association against highway robberies; or that an enemy to crimes in general, was an incompetent Judge of the guilt or innocence of an individual . The next objection' taken was to the admission of evidence as to the proof of , crime not laid in the indictment. When their Lordships considered the utter impossibility of laying specific charges to specific periods, both by the law of this country and that of Scotland, this objection would appear of little or no weight; but particularly so, when it was recollected that the facts proved were anterior to tbe dates contained in the" indict- ment; because, if subsequent thereto, it would be certainly a much greater hardship to be prepared to rebut, where the attention could not have been so readily drawn to a refuta- tion of the charge. With respect to the third objection, the refusal of evidence'on the ground of incompetence, there was a material distinction in the law of evidence in Scotland and this country, inasmuch as there existed a preliminary elimi- nation with regard to the conduct of evidence, upon which much of his competence as a witness depended, which preli- minary examination, however, although out of practice a- mong us, yet existed in act in what, was called the. voir dire, by which the competence of the witness would, among us, be called in queslion. Adverting to the general ground of argument advanced by the Noble Earl, he observed, that they were drawn from a praise of the- administration of criminal justice in Scotland,. in the middle centuries, in preference to that since the Revolution; a comparison between which, he believed, would need no great elucidation!, nor the conclu- sion be difficult to be drawn, observing only, that whatever privileges certain distinguished individuals: might have had, it could hardly be believed, that justice was more evenly and generally distributed then than in the more modern times. Leaving the laws upon this ground, he hardly deemed it necessary to say any thing in defence of; the Judges more than this, that, amidst the temporary clamour raised against them, they had done their duty, adopting the motto, " Be just, and fear not."— In doing this, they had even now found their reward ! for, excepting the perversion of some Sans Culottes of Edinburgh, the report of all intelligent and im- partial men were unanimous in their praise of the proceed- ings upon that occasion. Earl Lauderdale said, I. ord Loughborough had entered into the most declamatory harangue he had ever heard, and had subsituted in the place of reason and argument, wit and declamation. But nothing he had said could make him a- bandon the position he had laid down, that the criminal law of Scotland bore a greater resemblance before the Union to tht law of England, than it does at this present period ; that it bore a stronger resemblance to the law of England before the Union of the two Crowns, in the person of James I.— He concluded a spirited and animated reply, by wishing, as a friend to the peace and happiness of his country, that di- sturbances might not be the consequense of those proceedings. Ths motion of the Noble Lord was then put, and nega- tived without a division. The Lord Chancellor then moved, " That it is the opinion of this House, that there are no grounds for any interference with regard to the sentences past on Messrs Muir and Pal- mer." Lord Lauderdale said, that this motion was the most com- plete triumph to his Noble Friend ( Earl Stanhope) that he could have wished; for, on a former occasion; he had been told, it was the most indecent and illiberal conduct to sound a motion on the speech of any Noble Lord in that House. There could be no ground for the learned Lord's present motion but his Noble Friend's speech, the several motions he had made having been negatived. Earl Stanhope said, if any thing that could happen in' that House could surprize him, the present motion would have done it, being one of the most extraordinary kind he had e- ver heard. His Noble Friend ( Lord Lauderdale) had brought forward a motion which had been negatived; he had supported that motion by an able and eloquent speech, to which he had heard in reply some speeches which affect, ed to be answers, but Were in his opinion no answers. The. conduct of the Scots Judges, was, in his opinion, highly re- prehensible. The Learned Lord had said that the aristo- crat merchants, the aristocrat tradesmen, and the men of property, approved their conduct. The only persfons who disapproved thereof, were the' Sans Culottes— Of course ( said his Lordship) I must be a Sans Culotte citizen, a Sans Culotte individual, one of the Swinish multitude; for 1 think their proceedings have been unjust and illegal." He moved as an amendment, " That the several papers and documents by which- the merits of the question could be decided, have been refused." Lord Grenville thanked the Noble Lord for the candid manner in which he expressed himself; but he desired their Lordships to rccollect, that when the Noble Lord should a- gain stand forward in support of any constitutional question, they should not consider him a mere Lord of Parliament, but a Sans Culotte citizen. He thought the motion of the Noble Lord ( Lord Loughborough) Well sounded, and should therefore give it his support. The question was then put on Lord Stanhope's amend- ment, which was negatived, and the Chancellor's motion car- ried without a division. Adjourned. House of Commons. APRIL 14. Mr Mainwaring moved, " That leave be given to bring in a bill to enable his Majesty to license, as a play- house during the summer season, the theatre called the Royalty Theatre." Mr Sheridan stated, fully and forcibly, his objections to the bill. Mr Secretary Dundas said, he had no desire that the east part of the town should be deprived of the pleasure of thea- trical amusements any more than the west part of it; but he must tell the Houfe that he had a deputation from some of the most respectable inhabitants of that part of the me- tropolis, stating the great impolicy of having a theatre there,- and they gave very strong reasons in support of their opi- nions. He therefore could not, in justice to his situation, countenance such a motion as this. The question was then put and negatived.. — Mr Grey presented a petition 0n behalf of certain lottery, office keepers, praying to be heard by Counsel. against a clause in the present lottery bill, giving power to Magistrates to grant warrants to enter their houses, & c. Ordered to be laid on the table. Mr Pitt moved the order of the day, which was for the third reading of the bill, to empower the East India Com- pany to continue their bond debts, & c. which being read, he moved, That this bill be now read a third time,'' Mr Francis took notice of the importance of the bill, und argued against tbe measure. Lord Mornington replied to Mr Francis. The bill was then read a third time and passed, and order- ed to be carried to the Lords by Mr Dundas. Mr Pitt moved ths order of the day, for the committal of the bill to enable subjects of France to enlist as soldiers in his Majesty's service, on the Continent of Europe and other places, & c. which being read, he moved, that the Speaker do now leave the Chair. Colonel Tarleton opposed the bill on the general, principle of it, and on its provisions. He considered this as one of the parts of a plan which Ministers had formed against the libera ties of Englishmen; for, step by step,- were they undermi- ning the Constitution. He concluded with giving his nega- tive to the Speaker leaving the chair. Sir William Young supported the principle of the bill, and thought it as wise a measure as any ever proposed to the Le- gislature. Mr Whitbread said, he was afraid it Was one of the links of a Chain'of measures determined upon for the subversion of the Constitution. Suppose the French Government were a- ble to induce a certain number of persons in England to en- list in the service of a war against England, what would their situation be if taken ? — They would be executed as traitors. — Could we suppose that any thing short of that fate would await the French in a similar situation ?— Would we send troops into the field, as an Honourable Friend of his had ex- pressed it, with halters about their neck ?— Woe be unto us, if retaliation was to be exercised upon that occasion.— Dreadful would be the effect all over Europe— a scene of desolation and bloodshed would ensue, and be exhibited to the world, to which all that has passed since the com- mencement of the war, was mere; sport and pastime.— Besides, a report had prevailed that the King of Prussia had found his finances were exhausted in this war already, and that he would not proceed without English money. Per haps Austria might soon find itself in the same situation, and that, after all'the stress that had been laid on the low state of the finances of the French, all the superior wealth of the combined powers would be put an end to at the point of the French bayonet. The last point of view in which this measure appeared to him, was that in which it affected the constitution of this country. He thought it extremely ob- jectionable in that respect. It went to the utter subversion of the act of settlement. It empowered the King to have any number he pleased under his command of foreign troops; to increase them when he pleased; to make for them and for their officers what law he pleased; and if any danger should arise from all this, there was no remedy for any of it. Lord Mulgrave observed, that when he was at Toulon, there were persons serving in that garrison on an important post— they were surprized and taken. It was stated that they were massacred in cold' blood, he took pains to enquire into that subject. and he found that no such event had hap- pened ; but at the same time he was far from pledging himfelf, as to what might happen on such occasions, and if any future occasions 0r contrary, conduct should be adopted by our ene- mies, we must pursue the same measure, particularly, if we thought of . bringing this war to a successful conclusion. A-- contrary doctrine would lead to the moft dreadful situation ; for if the enemy should pursue this method of assassination, and should find that we would not do every thing in our power to deter them, they would bully us With the threat of it from day to day, for the purpose of inspiring terror. He knew it was not the custom of civilized nations, or of mo- dern times to put prisoners of war to death, but if our ene- mies deferred that civilized practice, we must in justice'to ourselves retaliate. The ground on which he intended to proceed at Toulon was this,— He should have sent out a flag of truce, stating to the enemy, that if any such violence to the law of Nations, and the feelings of humanity, were offered by them, he should man for man retaliate; and, however cruel that might seem in us, and. however repugnant to the feelings of human nature, he was ready to declare he believed it to be necessary in such a situation ; for if we did not proceed on equal terms, we could not carry on war at all. With regard to the objection that had been stated, to the King having the whole power of the troops to be raised by the present bill, it was not more so in this case than any other by the articles of war ; and he wished any gentleman to point out the distinction, if there were any. Major Maitland said, it was easy to vilify the republican troops of France in speeches, and to paint them in the most odious or contemptible colours ; but mark how the King of Prussia, in the declaration announcing his secession from the war as a principal, spoke of them to the States of Germany. He represented them, on practical experience, as a mass u- nited and almost invincible, combining tactics with numbers and a well- appointed artillery. Mark on whom the French would retaliate, if we put to death a prisoner taken from them— not on Frenchmen in our pay, but on British soldiers and British officers— on our fellow subjects, our friends, our relations; and let Gentlemen recoiled: who were already in their hands, and whom the fortune of war might put with- in their power. If, by employing Frenchmen to fight a- gainst France, we brought on this departure from the ordi- nary rules of war, to us, and not to the French, would be imputable all the horrors that must ensue from it. Mr Montague approved of the bill, as an efficacious mea- fure, tending almost to an immediate peace, and without any danger to the Conftitution. More force might be obtained by embodying the discontented French, now that all descrip- tions of men, forgetting their former differences, were dis- contented with the present rulers, than from our allies.— The very circumstance of such men having no mercy to ex- pect from their opponents in the field, would make them more true to us. If we had lost one ally, which, however, he did not believe, the more reason was there to look for o- ther allies. Retaliation in war was partly matter of right, partly matter of expediency. Men went to war with the in- tention of killing one another, and if they spared prisoners, it was only on the supposition of mutual convenience. Mr Este wondered how Gentlemen who, although they opposed the war, said, that if entered into, it ought to be vi- gorously prosecuted, could oppose a measure that tended so much to its vigorous prosecution. Mr Sheridan said, that having heard no answer to the ar- guments against the bill, unless the material objections were removed in the Committee, he should take the sense of the House on every stage of it. General Smith spoke in favour of the bill. Mr Dent said, that if the French emigrants, who had been so liberally supported by subscriptions in this country, did not enlist when an opportunity was offered them, they ought to be sent out of it. The House divided on the motion for resolving into a Com- mittee, Ayes 130— Noes 28. The House then resolved into the Committee; and in the first clause it was proposed by Ministers to substitute for the words " subjects of France," the words " subjects of the late Most Christian King." Mr Sheridan, and Mr Fox contended against the Chancel- lor of the Exchequer and the Solicitor General, that this was a mere evasion to get rid of acknowledging in words what had been acknowledged iu fact, viz. the existing Govern- ment of France. The amendment was adopted. A conversation took place on the different clauses. On tht last clause, an amendment was proposed by Major Mait- land, to make the bill an annual bill, which produced a few words from the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr Sheridan, and Major Maitland, upon which the House divided, For the amendment 17— Against it 78. The bill being gone through, the report was ordered to be received to- morrow.— Adjourned. April 15. Mr Long moved for leave to bring in a bill for saving to His Majesty the subsidy, or new duty, imposed on tobacco, in that part of Great Britain called Scotland. The bill was presented, read a first time, and was ordered to be read a second time to- morrow. ' The House ordered the petition relative to the Carlisle right of election to be heard on the 6th of July ; that from Seaford on the 7th of July, and that from Westminfter the 9th of July. BILL FOR THE REGULATION or THE SABBATH. Mr Mainwaring having moved the order of the day, for the House to go into a Committee on the bill for the better regulation of the Sabbath. The Speaker put the question for leaving the Chair, when Mr Joliffe objected to some parts of this bill. Mr Courtenay declared that he would oppose this bill, be- cause it authorised a set of the most profligate men, common, informers, to be paid by Justices of the Peace, even for their idleness ; and encouraged them to enter upon the most scan- dalous profession which could possibly be practised by any men especially Englishmen. He objected to the whole prin- ciple of the bill, because he thought it was founded on puri- tanical principles, to prosecute the poor, to make it incon- venient to buy a loaf on Sunday, or to purchase the necessa- ries of life, even on that day, which was the only day on which many of them could purchase them, it being so late on the Saturday right before they got their money. This- severity only extended to the labouring poor, while every deviation from morals was permitted to the higher ranks of the people, who were often seen playing at cards publicly, even after his Majesty's Proclamation. Sir James Sanderson, Mr Wilberforce, and Mr Mainwa- • ring, replied to Mr Courtenay. The House then went into a Committee— Mr Sergeant Watson in the Chair. Mr Courtenay and Mr Hussey spoke strongly against the clause for giving any money to informers, which was ex- punged. The bill went to prohibit the buying of bread on Sunday, and the baking of meat, pies, tarts, & c. except from nine o'clock in the morning till one in the afternoon. After a long conversation on this subject, the bill passed the Committee. London, April 16. The Duke of York has advanced to Valenciennes, and , an attack upon Landrecy is the immediate object. The amiable ci- devant Duchess of Hamilton is said to be at length in a fair way of enjoying domestic comfort, un- der a different title. The Hon. General Stuart is going out immediately to succeed General Dundas in the command at Corsica. Ge- neral D'Aubant, of the engineers, is the present com- mander there. We have reason to believe, that the siege of Bastia is ft HI continued by the British Force. Bastia, it was determined when the last accounts came away, was to be attacked by blockade; and provisions, it was known, were very short in that place. All accounts respecting Corsica, which we have very recently received, it is to be observed have come by Ge- noa. These are to be taken in the same light as if they had come hy the way of Paris itself— partial, distorted, and untrue. It is reported, that a convoy of merchantmen bound to Nice, had been captured by two Spanish frigates, which are cruizing off the Hieres, aud carried to Gib- raltar. Agreeable to the negotiations concluded between Great Britain and Prussia, Prussia is to send into the field a- gainst France 90,000 men. Of this number 32,000 men will join the army of his Royal Highness the Duke of York in the Netherlands, and 20,000 are to be in the pay of the Emperor, to begin from the first day of A- priL The latter are to act with the rest of the Prussians on the Upper Rhine. Those regiments which quit the environs of Meritz will immediately be replaced by o- thers. The Convention about To be entered into between. Great Britain, Prussia, and Holland, will not be ready to be laid before Parliament, until after the recess. The French it is supposed, will try the event of a gene- ral action, in which if they fail, it is determiued that the. allies shall march in full force towards Paris. The report of General Fox being wounded in a duel, is without the smallest foundation. Another report, probably equally destitute of founda- tion, is, that Prince Edward has been taken by a French Frigate, on his passage to the West Indies. A Congress of all the Italian States is opened at Milan, to concert measures for the common defence ; their object is the raising an army of 40,000 men ; Venice refuses ta join the coalition, and Parma will not grant any contri- bution towards the war. Besides the promotion of flag officers, the King, 011 Fri- day last, signed a list of Lieutenants promoted to be Ma- sters and Commanders, and another of Masters and Com - manders raised to the rank of Post Captains, each consist- ing of about twenty names, which were presented to his. Majesty in the closet by the Earl of Chatham. The late Naval promotions have encreased the several ranks to the following numbers,, viz. Admirals 99— Post Captains— 401— Masters and Commanders 184— Lieutenants 1628.—' Total Naval Of- ficers 2212. The Albion and Nonsuch, two 64 gun ships, lately cut down at Chatham for floating batteries, are fitting uj » with the greatest expedition, on a new plan, projected by Sir Sidney Smith. On the upper deck they are to car- ry 68 pounders, and on the lower 32 pounders. Their upper decks are to be provided with furnaces, for the pnr. pose of making balls red- hot. The magazines of these de- structive batteries are to be stored each with 450 barrels of powder, and 200 rounds of cartridges to be filled by the artillery- men, a company of which will be stationed on board each ship. They are to be rigged after the manner of frigates, and to carry the same complement of ; men. Captain Savage is to have the command of the Albion, and Captain Douglas of the Nonsuch. The 10th, 16th, 32d, and 49th regiments, are order- ed from the West Indies, to Ireland. The 79th, 81st, 84th, and 85th regiments, are order- ed to be put on the Irish establishment. The Americans have hired the French frigate Ambus- cade, and another, to cruize against the Algerines. They have been spoke with off Cape Ortega). By the death of Danton, there are no less than five for- tunate Gentlemen who gain 500 guineas The state of the bet was this,— They gave a guinea to receive 100, whenever Danton should be executed. The King of Poland is now to be considered only as a prisoner in his own capital. He is surrounded by 15,000 Russians, and his own army is reduced by an Imperial man- date to a handful of men. What mild and just step the Empress will next take with respect to Poland, it becomes a matter of curiosity to ascertain. A meeting of the London Corresponding Society for promoting a Parliamentary reform, was appointed for Monday, to be held in Store- street, Bedford- square, where the arm of power prevented their assembling. They ad- journed to the Chalk Farm Gardens, where they met to the number of three thousand. They there read their correspondence from the several parts of the kingdom; and passed a number of resolutions-— one was, that ano- ther Convention should be formed in six weeks, to consi- der of the most efficacious means of promoting a reform in Parliament, FRANCE. NATIONAL CONVENTION 15 GERMINAL, APRIL 4. St Just, in tbe name of the Committee of General Safety.—" the public accuser of the Revolutionary Tri- bunal has communicated that the revolt of the crimi- nals has made them suspend their proceedings until they shall know the sense of the Convention. You have e- scaped the greatest danger that ever menaced the Re- public : in the mean time all the accomplices are dis- covered, and the revolt of the criminals, even at the foot of justice, intimidated by the law, explains the secret of their conscience, their despair, and their fury ; every . thing announces that the honesly they affected was the most hypocritical snare that was ever laid for the Revo- lution. What innocent man ever shrunk from justice? There requires n0 other proof of their guilt than their audacity.— What ! those whom we have accused of being the accomplices of Dumourier and Orleans ; those who only made the revolution in favour of a new dy- nasty : those who have conspired for the misery and slavery of the people, at length complete their infamy by shrinking from trial! If it be thus with men who are truly the friends of liberty— if the energy proper for those who undertake to enfranchise their country is in their hearts, you will find there are no more concealed conspirators to punish, but bold, open, avowed conspira- tors, who counting on the aristocracy with which they have been for years connected, call down on the heads of the people the vengeance of crimes. No ! Liberty shall never retreat from its enemies 1 Their coalition is discovered. Dillon, who ordered his army to march against Paris, has declared that the wife of Desmoulins touched a sum of money to excite a movement, in order to assasiinate the patriots, and the Revolutionary Tri- bunal. We thank you for having placcd us at the post of honour.— Like you we shall cover our country with our bodies.— To die is nothing, provided that the Revo- lution triumphs. Behold the day of glory ; the day on which the Roman senate struck at Catiline; the day that shall consolidate for ever public liberty !— Your Com- mittees answer to you for an heroic watchfulness. Who can refuse to you its veneration in this terrible moment, when you fight, for the last time, against the faction that was indulgent to yoar enemies, and which this day renews its fury to fight against liberty ! Your commit- tees hold life cheap; they are covetous only of honour. People, you shall triumph ! May this experience make you love the Revolution by the perils to which it expo- ses your friends! It was without example that justice should be insulted ; if it ever was so, it was only so by insensate emigrants prophesying tyranny. But the new conspirators have recriminated on the public conscience. What more is wanting to convince us of their guilt ? Miserable men ! They confess their crimes by resisting the law. It is only criminals that terrible justice ever frightens. At this very moment, there are conspira- cies forming in the prisons in their favour— at this very moment, aristocracy is struggling. The letter that I am about to read to you will shew you your danger. Is it by privilege that the accused are insolent ? Let us call back, then, the tyrants, Custine and Brissot, from their tomb, for they did not exercise their privilege by insulting their judges. In the peril of the country, in tbe degree of majesty in whleh you have placed the people, mark the distance that separates, you from the guilty : it is in this view that your committee proposes to you the following decree : The National Convention, after having heard the " reports of the Committees of Public Welfare and of " General Safety, decree, that the Revolutionary Tri- " bunal shall continue its proceeding in the conspiracy of " Lacroix, Danton, Chabot, and others; and that the " President shall employ all the means that the Law " provides to make his authority, and that of the Tri- " bunal, respected ; and to repress all attempts on the " part of tbe accused to trouble the public tranquillity,;' " and to hinder the progress of justice. Decree, that " all persons accused of conspiracy, who shall resist or " insult national justice, shall be instantaneously held to be " guilty." Billaud de Varrenes. " Before making this decree, I demand that the letter Which the Committees have re- ceived from the administrators of police be read : it will shew the peril with which liberty is menaced, and the intimacy that subsists between the prisoners and the con- spirators." A Secretary read a Letter, which was as follows : " ' Commune de Paris, 15 Germinal, April 4. " We, the Administrators of the department of Police, in consequence of a letter written to us by the keeper of the house of arrest ( the Luxembourg) instantly went thither, and having ordered before us Citizen Laflotte, formerly Minister of the Republic at Florence, detained in the above house for the last six days, he declared, that yesterday, be- tween the hours of six and seven in the evening, being in the chamber of the citizen Arthur Dillon ( whom he has only known since his confinement), the said citizen took him aside, and asked him if he knew what had happened that day at the Revolutionary Tribunal ? that on his an- swering in tbe negative, the said Dillon told him that the accused Danton, Lacroix, and Herault, had declared that they would not answer, except in the presence of the mem- bers of the Convention, Roberspierre, Barrere, Saint Just, and others; that the people had applauded ; that the Jury, embarrassed by this circumstance, had written to the Con- vention, who had passed to the order of the day ; that ou the reading of this decree, the people had expressed strong marks of disapprobation, which were heard even to the bridge ( a noise which Dillon took care to make known in the prison) ; that his fears were that the Committees of Public Welfare and General Safety would order the prison- ers confined in the Conciergerie to be murdered, and that the prisoners in the other houses of arrest would undergo the same fate ; that they must resist oppression; that men with heads and hearts should unite; and that the said Dillon said besides, he was for the Republic, but for the free Re- public. Dillon then said, he had formed a project with Simon, deputy of the Convention, who had been detained in the same prison— a man of a cold head and a warm- heart; that he wished to communicate it to him, the de- clarer; that he, feeling the importance of discovering the project for the public good, took the part of dissembling, and of entering into his views; that Dillon said he would come to him in his apartment; that he would bring Simon along with him, and would strive to bring Thuriot, who was also a prisoner ; he then gave to a door- keeper, whose name he believed to be Lambert, ' a letter. On the obser- Vation of the door- keeper, the said Dillon cut off the sig- nature of the letter; that the said letter was for the wife of Desmoulins; that it put into her disposal a thousand crowns, in order to hire a mob to surround the Revolu- tionary Tribunal— after which he quitted the chamber ; that he, the declarant, then went into his own ; and that, reflecting on the importance which the discovery of the plot might be of, he determined to appear to participate in their ideas, the better to know their plan, Towards half after eight, Dillon and Simon came into his cham- ber; after having both confirmed the news which Dillon had previously communicated to him, they strove to awa ken in him all the passions which could make him adopt their project, as well by reviving all the discontent which they supposed him to have on account of his imprisonment, as by shewing the glory in which he would participate, by re- establishing the liberty which they said was lost ; and by exciting his ambition by the hope of the places to which he might be advanced. At length, when they thought themselves sure of having gained him, and that he was associated in their infamous plots, they detailed to him, and discussed in his presence, different plans. Desirous only to gain time, and to know their accomplices, he, the declarant, acceded to every thing ; he told them even that he had some money at their service. In short, when he was assured of all; when he was persuaded that they were' the sole depositories of their secret; when they had given him their parole not to act until they had heard the news of the next day, they retired satisfied of having gained a creature. It was nine o'clock in the evening, the wickets were shut, and he could not make his deposition without giving the alarm to the prison. He had the presence of mind, that he might not give any suspicion to Dillon,' to enter again into his chamber, and to sit there till eleven o'clock at a party at Whist. He watched the whole night, and at day- break he descended to the wickets, procured the gate opened, and ran to speak to Citizen Gobbert, who had the confidence of the keeper, that he might make his report to the keeper, to take their measures against the conspirators. As to the projects discussed by Simon and Dillon in his chamber, he reserves himself under the good pleasure of the Committees of Public Welfare and General Safety, to go and make to them the report, judging that prudence demands this course. " Having read the above to the said Citizen Laflotte, he declared that the above is the truth, and he has signed it along with us ; adding also, that on the stair of Citizen Benoit, the keeper, having met the Citizen Laminiere, who is also detained as a prisoner, he faid to him that the Citizen Arthur Dillon had descended into the other cham- bers about eight o'clock, and had made known the news, and mentioned his fears ; that the said Laminiere had treated them as chimeras; and that he, the declarant, had told him that he was going to have a conference with the said Simon aud Dillon; and all this the declarant has signed. ALEXANDRE LAFLOTTE. " Upon which we, the Administrator of Police, say, that it shall be instantly referred to the Committees of Public Welfare and General Safety, to be by them or dained what shall be done therewith. " WITCHENILE, '" Administrator of Police." The decree presented by St Just was adopted. Roberspierre.— I demand that this letter, and the report of St Just, shall be sent to the Revolutionary Tribunal, and that they shall be enjoined to read them to the audi- ence.— Ordered. 16 GERMINAL ( APRIL) 5. Couthon—" We are here to give you some particulars respecting what happened yesterday before the Revolutio- nary Tribunal, where Vadier and I were present without being seen. The conspirators said, that nothing was more glorious than to conspire against a government that conspires. Danton even had the audacity to fling little balls in the face of the Judges. Meanwhile, Simon, Thouret, and Dillon, in the prison of the Luxembourg, escorted by their military fellow- prisoners, were waiting the moment to break their chains, to seize the avenues to the Committees of Public Welfare and General Safety, to butcher their members, and to inflict the same barbarities on the patriots of Paris, and on the Revolutionary Tribu- nal : Then, taking the son of Capet from the Temple, they were to have put him into the arms of Danton, who was to present to the people their new Despot." Couthon moved, that every deputy be bound to give an account of his former and present fortune, and that each of them declare that the national vengeance do strike his head if he imposes 0n the nation. This motion was unanimously decreed, amidst loud bursts of applause. Barrere stated, that the navy of the Republic had taken 30 fresh prizes, from the 27th to 31st ult. Upwards of 400 sail had gone from Nantz to Tours, and thence to Pa- ris, all richly laden with provisions. This convoy is escor- ted by gun boats, and a great number of oxen are also on the road. A grazier of Pont- l'Aveque, moved at the want of provisions prevailing at Paris, sent a patriotic gift of 20 fat oxen. The armies of the Republic are in presence of the enemy, but the Committee waits the great results, to lay them before the Convention. de Batz, who has made his escape, was ordered to be tried with the Deputies. The Revolutionary Tribunal then proceeded to the ex- amination of witnesses, but Danton and the other Depu- ties declared that they would answer no questions except in, the presence of Roberspierre, Barrere and St Just. The President of the Revolutionary Tribunal,- and the • Public Accuser, attempted to induce them to depart from this determination. Their attempts, however, were in- ' effectual. The Tribunal, in consequence of this event, suspended the trial, and a report was ordered to be pre- sented to the Convention. 16 GERMINAL ( APRIL 5.)- The decree passed by the Convention, together with the letter received by the Committees of Public and Ge- neral Safety, from the Administrators of the Police, were read to the Deputies. They persisted, however, in their determination not to answer interrogatories, unless Ro- berspierre, Barrere, and St Just, were summoned to at- tend. The conduct of Danton was extremely turbulent, and he inveighed in very strong terms against the Judges. In consequence of the mode of conduct adopted by the prisoners, the Jury found DANTON, Camille Desmoulins, Herault de Sachelles, Lacroix, AND Philippeaux, Westermann, guilty of a conspiracy against the Republic— and CHABOT, Bazire, Julien de Thoulouse, & Fabre d'Eglantine, Delaunay d'Angers, guilty of corrupt practices. D'Espagnac, the two Freys, Dietrichen, and Gusman, were also found guilty. Lullier was acquitted. At two o'clock in the afternoon tbe Revolutionary Tribunal passed sentence of death upon them, and or- dered them to be executed at the expitation of three hours. PLACE DE LA REVOLUTION, EVENING of the FIFTH INST. At five o'clock, the condemned persons were conveyed in three carts from the Conciergerie to the Place de la Revolution. In the first cart were, Danton, Chabot, Lacroix, Fabre, d'Eglantine, and Hcrault de Sechelles. In the second, Philippeaux, Delaunay d'Angers, Bazire, and Camille Desmoulins, In the third Westermann, and the rest. They all behaved with intrepidity, except Lacroix.— Danton, in particular, who was executed last, shewed the utmost contempt of death. REVOLUTIONARY TRIBUNAL. 14 GERMINAL ( APRIL 3.) DANTON AND THE OTHER DEPUTIES. After the reading of the act of accusation and the re- port of St Just— Amar, the Public Accuser, requested that General Westerman should be brought from the Conciergerie, in order to be tried with the Deputies.— This request was complied with. As soon as General Westerman arrived, tbe Revolu- tionary Tribunal proceeded to the examination of evi- denes against him— Cambon, the Deputy, was exa- mined— His deposition related entirely to Fabre d'Eglantine, Delaunay d'Angers, and Chabot— He de- veloped. the measures adopted by the Committee of Five,, to suppress the Finance Companies, and to establish the credit of assignats, and he disclosed the manner in which the three Deputies alluded to, had altered the decree pas- sed by tbe Convention, relative to the East India Com- party. As the Tribunal were do the point of adjoining, Danton and Phillippeaux requested leave to communicate freely with their defenders. This request was acced- ed to. 15 GERMINAL ( APRIL 4.) In pursuance of the tion of the Public Accuser, Lullier, Procureur Or. of the Department of Paris, in consequence of his intimate connection with the Baron Edinburgh April 19. Monday last, was married at Finlaystone, James Mur- doch, jun. Esq. merchant in Glasgow, to Miss Frances Wallace, daughter of John Wallace, Esq. Last night was married here, James Fyffe, Esq. of Dublin, to Miss Jean Stevens, only daughter of Mr Alexander Stevens, architect, Edinburgh. The account, copied from the London papers, of the death of Henry Drummond, jun. Esq. is without foun- dation. In a Scotch appeal in the House of Lords, on Tuesday the 15th April, the Lord Advocate of Scotland was heard in behalf of the Governor and. Company of Undertakers for raising Thames Water, in York Buildings, who are appel- lants, against Alexander Mackenzie, writer to the signet, respondent. — Ordered to proceed farther on Thursday. On Tuesday. last arrived at Sommer's Hotel, Sir Ben- jamin Dunbar, Bart. On Tuesday last Mr Peter M'Lachlan, Glensanda, Argyleshire, was examined by the Royal College of Sur- geons, on his skill in Anatomy, Surgery, and Pharmacy, and found fully qualified to practise these arts. Tuesday last, there was a meeting of the heritors of the county of Roxburgh at Jedburgh, when they agreed to raise three troops of cavalry for the internal defence of the country ; two to be liable to be sent to any part of Great Britain, if necessary ; but the third to remain in the county for its internal defence. At a numerous meeting of gentlemen of Argyleshire, presently in Edinburgh, held this day, it was the unani- mous opinion, that it will be proper that the county meeting, to be held at Inverary on the 30th current, take, into consideration the making offer of some military aid to Government, for the defence of the country at this time, and that gentlemen who cannot attend in person, should be requested to favour that meeting with their sen- timents on the subject in writing. We hear from Methven, the parish in which Colonel Graham of Balgowan has his principal residence, that, on the evening of the 11th instant, the day on which he was unanimously elected member of Parliament for the Coun ty of Perth, the inhabitants of the village, and the peo- ple of the neighbourhood assembled in great numbers to testify their joy on the occasion. A blazing bonfire en- lightened the sky, while health and long life to the Co- lonel, with much success to him in his double capacity of statesman and soldier, was the sentiment of every heart, enlivened by the social glass, aad announced by the dis- charge of fire arms. His Majesty's health, with many other suitable toasts, were given, accompanied by vollies from a select band. Every window was illuminated, and the ringing of bells was continued to a late hour. The principal houses at some distance made also a fine appear- ance, and the Colonel's health was publicly drunk in the smaller villages; and fires were seen on the distant hills, publishing an event which diffused such general satisfac- tion. The West Lowland Fencibles, under the command of Colonel Montgomery, are arrived at Chatham Barracks, in good health and high spirits. Yesterday being Good Friday, the same was observed with great solemnity by those of the Episcopal persuasion, and the Banks and Public Offices were shut. Citizen Oswald, whom our readers most recollect as a writer of Jacobinical prose- run- mad, having been appoint ed to some command in the Republican army in La Ven- dee, has been made to bite the dust by the Royalists.— He was bred a silvermith, and was a native of Edinburgh, The Emanuel, Captain Herman, E. Troye, sailed from Bergen, the 3d December last, bound for Leith, with a Captain Watson, belonging to St Andrews, and 21 Bri- tish sailors on board ; of whom some had been taken by the French, and some wrecked on the coast of Norway. The vessel has never been heard of since.

T'HE MAGNESIA LOZENGES are a certain remedy for the Heartburn, and all disorders arising from Sharp Humours infesting the Stomach and Bowels; are ex- cellent in removing the Effects of indigestion, as Wind, Phlegm, Cholics, Fixed Pains, and Uneasiness after Eating, particularly Vegetables, which many people are subject to. They are so powerful a corrector of acidities, as to afford almost instant relief from the painful consequences of drink- ing sour wine, stale beer, & c. They are agreeable to the taste, and, though gently opening ( a quality peculiar to these Lozenges) may be taken at any time without inconvenience. The repute these Lozenges have obtained for near thirty years, among all ranks of people in England, testify their superior excellence; and as they are an improvement of the MAGNESIA, are applicable to every case where that is deemed necessary. These Lozenges continue to be prepared and sold by W. P. apothccary, No. 21, Doctor's Commons, London— and by his appointment for Scotland, a. R. SCOTT's, druggist.

The late LORD CHESTERFIELD has said, that " Nothing contri- buted so much to our general Success in Life, as an engaging first appearance." Impressions are always formed at first sight; they affect us,, more or less, in all situations of life, even in our most trivial concerns; and, indeed, have eventually decided the future fortunes of thousands. Since, then, as Dr Blair also ingeni- ously observes, " A good appearance is a letter of recommendation it really becomes an object: worthy our serious attention, that the human Face, the mind's only index, should be as free as possible from those deformities, which not only create dis- gust, but suspicion; as nothing certainly can be more unfa- vourable to ihe advancement of either seX, than a visible un wholesomeness and implied disease. Persons who are thus afflicted must, from a sensibility of their own condition, feel DOUBLY the want of these common advantages; to them the importance of a healthy appearance and a good com- plexion must be DOUbLy obvious, and the means of acquiring them more particularly desirable. GOWLAND'S LOTION is an effectual remedy for all diseases of the skin, however vio- lently ulcerated or dissiguring, whether Scorbutic or Herpe- tic ; whether in the forms of Pimples, Freckles, Blotches, Teeters, Scurf, Black- worms, or mere Redness ; and also up- on the self- same MEDICAL PRINCIPLE, for cleansing and clear- ing the Thickness and Opacity of the skin, and for removing every imperfection to which it is liable. The Thickness or Opacity of the complexion is occasioned from a want of energy in the skin to exude its own secretion. The perspirable matter being checked, and continually con- densing in the extremities of the Pores and Capillary Tubes, they become charged and indurated therewith, and the skin evidently thickened and opaque. By a gently- stimulating quality it excites the skin to a discharge of those stagnated contents, and thereby renders it thin and fair, smooth, soft, and elastic. Its operation is feen in a few days, by a whitish scurf which rises, and is every morning wiped off, when the improvement becomes immediately visible and striking. | t is sold, wholesale and retail, at Mr KELTIE's Perfumery Warehouse, St Andrew's Street, Edinburgh— and by Mr Brown perfumer, Glasgow— Mr Anderson perfumer, Aber- deen— and Mr Hood perfumer, Perth— Quarts iss. 6d. pints js. 3d, THE VILLA OF Olive BANK, NEAR MUSSELBURGH.

To be SOLD by public voluntary roup, within the Old Ex- change Coffeehouse, Edinburgh, on Monday the 16th day of June next, between the hours of five and fix afternoon, ALL and WHOLE, the LANDS and ESTATE of 1N- VERHALL, or INVERTROMMIE, with the whole Sheallings, Pasturages, and Pertinents thereof, lying in the lordship of Badenoch, parish of Kingusie, and county of In- verness. These lands hold feu of the Duke of Gordon, for payment of 50 merks Scots, with some small customs and services, which are all converted. The yearly rent is at pre- sent only nol. Sterling, but, as there are no leases on any of the lands, a very considerable increase of rent may reason- ably be expeCted, and has indeed been offered, on granting leases for a moderate endurance. There is not perhaps in the Highlands of Scotland a more beautiful or picturesque spot, than that now offered to sale. It lies in the very heart of Badenoch, along the banks of the Water of Trommie, and is also bounded by the River Spey, at the junction of the Trommie with that river. It is in- terpersed and skirted with birch and other brush wood; ex- tends four or five miles from the strath or middle of the country, due south, up the Glen of Trommie ; and the pro- prietor has a right of pasturage to the very source of Trom- mie, several miles farther up. In the low part of the estate, or at Invertrommie, there is a large field of fine, arable land, of the best quality in that country. There is also an extensive meadow or morass, ad- joing to the arable land, along the banks of the Spey, and yielding great crops of fine natural hay. Trommie and Spey afford great plenty of salmon, and trout of different kinds, in the greateft perfection There are several falls on the waters of sufficient force to drive mills or machinery of any extent, and constantly supplied with water. The estate is well supplied with moss of the best quality. It contains a Slate Quarry; and it is believed there is also plenty of lime stone. It is in every respect capable of the highest improve- ment. In the middle of Glentrommie, there is a residence which has for several years been occupied as a SHOOTING QUARTER, by different Gentlemen of rank and fortune ; and here the Proprietor has built a substantial house of seve- ral apartments, superior to most Shooting Quarters. Fancy can scarcely figure a more pleasant or romantic situation than this place affords. It is close by the river, surrounded with natural woods of great beauty, and considerable value, 011 both sides. There are large fields of fine natural grass round the house by the river side. For a sportsman, there cannot be a more eligible station; as, around the residence, there is a range of four or five miles of the best Shooting Ground in the Highlands; the Game is in great abundance, and frequently within twenty yards of the house— and Trout and Salmon in the river running past the door. There is also a carriage road to the Shooting Quarters, leading from the high road from Edinburgh to lnverness. The whole estate, and particularly the Glen, is also well calculated for a sheep walk; and having the water on one side of it, and the whole being well supplied with stones, may easily be indosed ot little expence. There is no mansion- house on the estate, but many delight- ful situations for building on, particularly at Invertrommie, where, besides having a view of that part of the estate, there will also be had a complete view of the country of Badenoch for many miles up and down, the beauty of which is well known to every person who has travelled the Highland road. Belville House ( a new modern and elegant building) immedi- ately fronts this part of the estate— the Ruins of the Barracks of Ruthven— the Parish Church— the Place of Gordonhall— and many other beautiful objeCts are all in the immediate neighbourhood. There is also a view of Dunnachton, the ancient seat of the family of Macintosh, the Place of Inver- eshie, and of Loch Inch, and the river Spey for several miles of its course through that delightful country. The whole forming one of the finest landscapes in Scotland.

LANDS IN AMERICA TO BE SOLD. FOUR THOUSAND ACRES still unsold of that Fertile Track of Land formerly advertised, lying in the Coun- ty of FAYETTE, and State of KENTUCKY. These lands, for the easy acquirement and conveniency of purchafers, are divided into lots of 500 acres, and these remaining lots are now to be sold at 137I. per lot, being 5s. 6d. per acre. There is a fine stream of water running through thefe lands, which communicates with the great river Ohio, fo that Mills may be ereCted. Fayette is the head court of the State, and is the nearest and most convenient for Philadelphia, Baltimore, City, of Washington, & c. The soil of Kentucky is deep and black, and lies upon a bed of limestone and coal. The natural growth of the country are large walnuts, honey, poplar and Sugar trees. The surface is covered with blue grass, clover, and wild rye, grape vines running to the tops of the trees— shrubs and plants grow spontaneously, and afford a beautiful blossom of a rich and exqusite fragrance— cotton and fugar are manufactured to advantage— wheat, barley, oats, flax, and hemp, yield abundantly; indeed it is affimed that there have been raised 1oo bushels upon one acre, but the common produce is from 40 to 60 bushels per acre. Owing to the peculiar richness of the soil, and fine climate of this country, asserted to be the best in the world, being both healthy and delightful, no part of America, nor any part in the universe, has been so rapidly settled, and it is now impossible to ascertain, with any degree of certainty, the number of the inhabitants, in consequence of the numerous, accessions which are made almost daily. The returns made to Congress upon ill March 1792 state them at 76,000— in March 1793 there were upwards of 100, coo— and from their astonishing increase since, they may he estimated at 200,000, as it is asserted, that besides what arrive from Europe, and come from the other states of America daily, that 20,000 migrated from the West India Islands this summer. The progress in improvement and cultivation in this new State al- most exceeds belief: Eleven years ago Kentucky lay in a for- rest, but she now exhibits an extensive settlement, divided into seven populous counties, in which are » great number 01 flourishing towns. The taxes upon land and the necessaries of life are scarcely to be felt by the poorest in the state. Any person who goes from Europe has the advantage of a free American Citizen the moment he arrives in this new State, and is entitled to be elected to any office in the Commonwealth of America. For particulars apply to Mr John Granger, writer to the signet, or John Finlayson, writer in Cupar, Fife, in whose hands are the title- deeds and plan of the lands advertised.
