The Monthly Reviewers, after having spoken of the want of such a work as the present, proceed to state their opinion OF its merits as follows: " Fortunately for the public, this task has devolv- ed on a Gentleman, whose talents and opportunities eminently qualify him for discharging it with fide- lity and reputation. The high expectations with which we sat down to his book have not been disap- pointed ; and we are enabled to, commend equally the propriety of the plan and the diligence of the execution. Accuracy of painting, and perspicuity of expression, distinguish the present descriptions from those of many of the Author's predecessors. The candour, judgment, and discrimination with which he has selected his materials; the diffidence with which he records doubtful allegations; the temper with which he prosecutes his inquiries, removed a- like from scepticism and credulity ; his apparent free- dom from pre conceived opinions; his uniform and respectful intimations of the sources whence he de- rives his materials; and the singular felicity with which he has - adapted the tenor of his writings to the disciple of Linne, and the common reader, all intitle him to very singular praise. With regard to the typography and engravings of this work, we arc happy in informing or readers that they are execut- ed in a manner which is suitable to its solid merits.*' Vide Monthly Review for Sept. and 0ct. 1802 For other characters ol this work, the reaj'r . requested to refer to the British Critic and Critical Reviewers.

These Lands consist of 1560 acres, whereof I109 are at present arable. They hold of the Crown, and the valued rent is I.. 1030 Scots. A great- part of the Estate is out of lease, so that the present rental cannot well be stated ; but on the supposition of there being no leases, it has been valu- ed by very competent Judges, at nearly L. 1100 a year; but if a few Thousand Pounds were to be ju- diciously laid out on improvements, the means of which are at hand, it is difficult to say to what value this Estate might soon be brought. If not sold in one parcel, the Estate will be divid- ed into such Lots as purchasers incline, or as circum- stances may require. The I. ots presently in view, are the following three, viz. LOT 1st. to consist of the EAST MAINS, with the Mansion house and Garden, and the Parks pos sessed by John Walker and William Nicol, measur- ing in whole 194 acres.

During the period when the Hebrides- were attached to the Crown of Denmark, these Mines were wrought to a very great extent, and formed an article of Commerce with the neighbour-; irtg countries. They were also wrought in the time of JAMES the V. of Scotland, when Buchanan de- scribes them as paying annually to the King, a consi-; derable quantity of Silver. Since that period, they: have successively been held in lease, and wrought first by the Glasgow Company, afterwards by Messrs. Crawfurd and Freebairn, and latterly by the Angle- sea Company, ' In- the immediate vicinity of the Mines, there is an inexhaustible supply of water, with a descent suffici- ent for any Machinery, which may be wanted. The; Island is also interested in all directions, by excel- lent carriage, roads, and two commodious Harbours, with stone quays, afford convenient outlets for tran- sporting the Ores to the different parts of the world. As the proprietor is more anxious to promote the em- ployment of the inhabitants of the Island, then to reap any immediate profit to himself, the most advantage- ous terms, and every accommodation and conveni- ence towards promoting the working of them may. be relied upon. ; Persons wishing to enter into, terms, or to make any inquiries, are requested to apply to Alex. Grant, W. S. Argyle's Square, Edinburgh ; or to John Spot-; tiswood, Esq; Solicitor-, Sackville Street, Piccadilly, London. FARM IN THE CARSE OF FALKIRK TO BE LET.

FOR COUGHS, ASTHMAS,- THE BALSAM OF LIQUORICE, an elegant, concentrated liquid preparation from the root, whence it derives its name, stands. unrivalled for the relief of Coughs, Colds,, Catarrhs, Wheezings, Hoarsenese, Asthmas, and other Pulmonary Com- plaints. The superiority of this Medicine consists not only in the success which accompanies it, but also in the simplicity of its composition ; for children, it posses- ses the double advantage of being administered with perfect safety, and when other Medicines from their taste are rejected, this is taken With avidity. It speedily allays irritations or tickling Coughs, softens acrimonious humours in the throat, promotes ex- pectoration of viscid phlegm, and soothes the inflam- ed membranes; in short, for pleasantness. safety, and efficacy, it can never be excelled. . The late EArL OF ABINGdON had so repeatedly witnessed the good effects of this concentrated li- quid preparation- from Liquorice Root,- that he was in ' IN habit of recommending it to many of the No- bility ; and it is a tribute due to the memory of so worthy and humane a character, to state also, that he purchased large quantities annually to give away to the afflicted poor.

To BE LEASED, For such a- number of years as may be agreed upon, and entered to immediately, THE LEAD MINES of TYNDROM, belong- ing to the Earl of Breadalbane. These Mines have been wrought for 30 years- by the Scots Mining Company, and formerly by Sir Robert Clifton, and others. This Lead is reckoned the purest probably in- the world, and the fittest for making into white paint. - Sometimes the principal Lead Vein at Tyndrom Is intersected by a Vein ot Clay, as white as snow, in which is an Ore of Cobalt, perfectly free from bismuth and nickel, and of course proper for the fin- est China and Enamel Paint. A FARM will be LET along with the Mines, end there is proper accommodaion for the people em - ployed in the works; which, may be increased at a moderate expence. There are also very promising appearances of Lead at Drishaig, on the side of Loch- Awe, ! 2 miles weft from Tyndrom, and in some other places of the neighbourhood. Tyndrom is situated in Perthshire, ten miles ftotn the head of Loch Lomond, from whence the Least has been generally carried by water to Glasgow and Greenock. The mines will shewn by the innkeeper at Tyn- drom ; and proposals for a lease may be given in' to John Campbell, writer to the signet, Edinburgh, or to James Chalmers, Abingdon Street, London, who will shew a section of the mines, and give further information.

On the motion of LORD EUSTON, Mr. HEARN, Messenger to the Serjeant at Arms, WAS ordered to --- State at the bar the Steps he had taken to apprehend James Trotter, one of the witnesses summoned, to give evidence before • the Committee on the Dunfermline. Election, and who had not obeyed the warrant of the House. MR. HEARN stated, that he had proceed- ed to the residence of James Trotter, near Edinburgh, but did not find him there. His wife gave evasive answers to the question the messenger put to her respecting her husband,. she asserted however, that he had never seen the warrant of the House, and that he had gone away from home before the warrants had ar- rived, and that she had not seen him since.— The messenger asked Mrs. Trotter to sign a memorandum of what the had stated, but she told him she had neither pen nor ink in the house ; at last he prevailed upon her to Sign a memorandum to the above effect, which he wrote with a pencil. The Serjeant at Arms was ordered to take farther Steps for the execution of the warrant of fhe House, by apprehending the said James Trotter. MR. HOBHOUSE moved, that there be laid before the House the quantity of cotton wool and cotton twist exported from this country in the years 1790 and 1802, specifying the quali- ty of the same in each year.— Ordered. THE SECRETARY AT WAR got leave to bring in a bill for consolidating the Militia Laws, relating to the provision to be made for the families of Militia men when called on ac- tual service. EAST INDIA BUDGET. LORD CASTLEREACH opened the EAST IN- DIA BUDGET in a very able speech. He enter- ed into a very minute detail of our different . Settlements in INDIA, replete with Financial Calculations and Figures. The produce of the Revenue had in no in- stance, but that of the Presidency of Bombay, proved less than it was supposed in the previous estimates. The expences of the expedition to Egypt had, indeed, made an addition to the expenditure : but, the increase in the produce of the different branches of revenue, and in our new Acquisitions, had been nearly Sufficient for the discharge of that aug- mented expence. In the trade to China, there had been no diminution, nor bad the profits on that trade been lessened. If a mode could be found of transferring to Europe, at such inte- rest as was paid here,; those debts for which the Company now paid nine per cent, in India, a fund might be provided for the speedy dis- charge of all the Company's debts. On the whole of the Estimates he conceived himself warranted to the House in concluding, that the Company would be able to apply two millions a year to the liquidation of their debt in time of peace, and one million in case we should again unhappily be involved in a war.— The Company might also derive a further aid, if that Should be necessary, by increasing its ca- pital, as it was empowered to do by Act of Parliament, and by a fresh issue of bonds, which taken together would afford an aid of 6, ooo, oool. He thought it material to state, that none of the arrangements adverted to by him went to crip- ple the trade of the Company ; and to Shew that if peace should continue, which would be the greatest blessing for India as well as for Eu- rope, the happiest result would arise in the Company's affairs. But it was still more ma- terial to be known, that if unhappily we Should - be involved in a new Struggle in defence of our honour and interests, no portion of the EMPIRE would be better able to bear its share of the common charge than India. MR. JOHNSTONE, though he differed with the Noble Lord as to the confidence which Should be given to the prospect held out, bore testimony of the clearness and accuracy of the accounts. Though he could not agree that an actual increase of debt of 3,500, oool. was a good ground 011 which to build a expectation of an increase of applicable funds of 2,500,000!.; yet he was ready to allow that the accounts on the table were made up with as much accuracy as the affairs of a vast Empire would; admit, cr as there had been an instance of in the ad ministration of any great country. With re- spect to the Noble Lord's Statement, of the " THE EDINBURGH new of territory and revenue in i India, he would ask - what was the nature of those acquisitions, for which so much credit was attributed to the India Company? They were acquisitions, in his mind, much less in titled to credit than to disgrace ; acquisition? wrested by violence and injustice from those Powers whom the India Company termed friends and allies, but whom they plundered without mercy, as the worst of enemies THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER observed, with some warmth, that there was something which had fallen from the Hon. Member who spoke last, which it was im- possible for him to let pass without notice.—^ The Hon Gentleman had declared, that our late acquisitions in India had been obtained by the most flagitious and criminal violations of every principle of justice and national faith.— He was sorry that the Hon. Gentleman could think himself Warranted in forming for one moment an opinion at once so injurious and so unfounded ; and that he should have chosen a moment for expressing that opinion, when these was not an opportunity of taking the whole of the subject into a full and fair dis- cussion, and this too in the absence of those highly honourable and meritorious charters, whose conduct was thus implicated upon a sub- ject, wherein their proceedings, when every- thing came to be investigated, would Stand honourably vindicated in the eyes of Europe. SIR HUGH INGLIS stated the profits of the India trade to have been last year nearly equal to those of the China trade. The China trade had produced 3, ooo, oool. and the India trade 2,700,000l. The Hon. Gentleman could not therefore say, that this did not afford a ground of confidence. MR. FRANCIS regarded estimates as of official promises, on which little was to be placed, and as predictions verified by events. MR. WILLIAM DUNDAS replied to Mr. FRANCIS, and stated that the accounts were perfectly accurate. The resolutions were agreed to UNANI- MOUSLY. THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER gave notice that he would, on Wednesday next, move for a Committee to take into con- sideration the charges on the Civil List, and the most effectual means of preventing the ac- cumulation of debt.— Adjourned.

War Policies were opened in the City, on Saturday, offering seventy- five guineas to re- ceive one hundred, if hostilities take place by the first of May. Our preparations have occasioned the utmost surprise at Boulogne, Calais, Havre, and along the whole line of the French coast. The in- habitants are perfectly ignorant of the causes that have induced us to assume an attitude of Such formidable vigour. Among the numerous reports which are cir- culated daily, we heard that the FIRST CON- SUL had written a very insolent letter to the KING, of which the following is the substance : " Brother, in disputes between nations of such importance as England and France, a question must necessarily arise of considerable moment, viz. " which is the greater ?" We of course, reciprocally must be partial ; and I have no hesitation in declaring, that if BRITAIN do not submit to my claims, the ENGLISH EMPIRE muit be ecrase " ( destroyed.)"—( LONDON COURIER.) To this rumour we do not give the Slightest credit, for if such a letter had really been re- ceived, all explanation with BONAPARTE would have been in the highest degree criminal. We should have declared war. Two other reports stand on a less loose foundation, but we have not been able to ascertain that they deserve cre- dit. They are, first, that an insult has been of- fered on the subject of Malta, and of such a nature as not to be Suffered; and, 2d, that French troops, under the disguise of Dutchmen, have taken possession of the Cape, and thus committed an infraction of a treaty, the prin- ciples of which have already been Several times violated.—[ lb.) Extract of a LETTER from PARIS, March J. " During the epidemic, which lately reigned at Paris, the indefatigable attention of BONA- PARTE to public affairs, proved a source of great affliction to his Ministers. TALLEYRAND, with a Swelled face, an ulcerated throat, and inflamed eyes, was sent for to one of his night- ly conferences. After having remained an hour, he felt himself so ill, that he begged per- mission to return home, in order to go to bed. This was granted him : but he was not an hour in bed, when a messenger again came to desire his immediate attendance. The Minister of External Relations took off the bandages with which he had enveloped his head and face, and shewed the messenger his deplorable situation, adding, that he could not go, unless it was something which deeply concerned the good of the State. The messenger carried this re- port to St. Cloud; but he soon came back with an order of that decisive kind, which left no room for hesitation ; and the unfortunate Mi- nister did not think it prudent to disobey. In the same unseasonable weather, MENOU, who had received his appointment to Piedmont, was sent for at one o'clock in the morning, to a con- ference at St. Cloud, which lasted till two. At his return, there were several Ministers waiting in the anti- chamber. " At a late levee of Madame BONAPARTE, the Prince de NASSAU having addressed some observations to that Lady, ( he looked sternly at him, and turned away her head without, making any reply. One of the Maids of Ho- nour soon afterwards came up to the Prince, and informed him, that it was the etiquette there, that no one spoke first to Madame BONAPARTE, but only made replies to such questions as she might ask." The best answer which can be given to the late pompous expose of the flourishing State of the Revenue and Finance of the French Repub- lic, is conveyed in the following Extract from the Proceedings of the Tribunate on the 3d instant : " A Petition was read from several holders of Government Annuities, Stating that some of them had not been paid for the last half year of 1797, and the first half year of 1798, for which they had received debentures upon the produce of the taxes ; that some of them had not even received the fourth part of specie which they were to have had in the first half year of 1797." The only redress which the Petitioners received, was to have their repre- sentation referred to the Government. MARCH 18. YORK ASSIZES, March 10. SEDITION. WILLIAM LEE and WILLIAM RONXLEY were indicted for feloniously administering a certain oath, contrary to the Statute of the 37th year of his present Majesty's reign, in- titled, " An act for more effectually preventing the administering or taking of unlawful oaths." William Simnet was the first witness, who said that he was brother- in- law to William Rowley. In October 1801, Ronxley asked him to make one with them in their Society, and said it would be better to join them than to do otherwise, for if any fell in the engage- ment when it came to a battle, there would be a maintenance for their wives and families af terwards,; Ronxley said the battle was to be with any who might come against them ; ad- ding, there were more than 1000 of the So- ciety in Sheffield. In OCtober 1802, Ronxley asked the witness to go with him to Lee's, and become one of the Society ; witness went with Ronxley to Lee's, and told Lee they were come to join the Society ; Lee produced a pa- per and read it over ; it was to make them members, and to keep secrets with the Socie- ty ; Lee and Ronxley told him to repeat after Lee, which he did, and then bade him kiss the paper, which he did ; Ronxley told the wit- nefs, that the Society intended to make this a Free Nation if possible, and they were to rule themselves ; that it Was to be done by fighting; that they were to destroy the Parliament, to take the Parliament House, and to rule them- selves. Ronxley Said he was a Conductor, Lee was a Chief in the Society, and witness was a Member ; Ronxley said there were Five Chiefs in Sheffield, but did not say how many Con- ductors ; Ronxley, in the latter end of August last, said that orders were come from the Chiefs to prepare arms for themselves, and he should prepare arms for himself and his men, such men as he had attested as a Conductor.— Witness said, he heard Ronxley give orders to one Ramscar, a whitesmith in Sheffield, For some Pikes. Ronxley asked the witness to go to Ramscar's to see if the spears were done ; witness went and got three or four at Ram- scar's ; could not get more, as Ramscar said JERSEY.— M. Shippey, who for several months has resided in Jersey, in the assumed capacity of Commercial Consul from the French Government, and who has hitherto been extremely noxious to the inhabitants, has within these few days been, by order of Gen. GORDON, the Governor, confined to the town of St. Helier, with the indulgence of walking in an an adjoining rope- walk for the benefit of the air. It is to be feared this gen- tleman has lost no time in obtaining every in- formation which may ultimately prove inimi- cal to that country. There is not a bay, a fortified place, nor in short a road, the know- ledge of which might be serviceable to an e- nemy, which he has not, by his diurnal visits, made himself perfectly master of. We could wish his observations in that island had been prevented by an earlier restriction. A circumstance has lately come to light, that is no less matter of surprise than of concern to us. It appears, by the papers of an officer in the British service, who died a few days since, that he has maintained a correspondence with BONAPARTE, which was brought down nearly to the time of his death. What the exact na- ture of this correspondence was, we have not been able to learn. The discovery was conse- quent to the death of the person alluded to.— His papers have been put into the hands of Government.—( PORTSMOUTH GAZETTE.) Colonel PERRIN, first Aid- de- Camp to the late General LECLERC, arrived on Sunday at Jaequier's hotel, Leicester Square, last from New York. This officer was quite aft , nished to find, on resorting to the file of French Journals, that General ROCHAMBEAU was ef- fecting wonders in St. Domingo, and that there was every appearance of the speedy restoration of order and good government in that colony. So great, indeed, was his surprise, that he ex- claimed, " Tout ceci, ma foi, est bien neuf pour moi"— or in other words—" this is the first time I have heard of it." no more were yet done, for he had not had time to do more ; they were blades, sharp at each edge, and a sharp point; brought them to Ronxley's. Ronxley said they would do very well with Shafts. Witness went with his brother to a wood to get Shafts; heard Lee say to Ronxley, after the spears were got, that a letter had come by the post; it was found out and opened, and that it was proper, there- fore, all the pikes should be hid as Soon as pos- sible. After this witness and Ronxley took a box and buried it ; Ronxley said there were pikes in it. That in the evening he went with Ronxley, Thomas Frere, and witness's bro- ther, to a wood, about a mile from Sheffield, called Cook's Wood; witness made a hole, and put the box in the ground ; Ronxley said there was lime put in the box with the pikes to pre- serve them. ^ Witness was afterwards taken up and went with the Constable to the wood, to the place where the box was buried. . They took it up, and it was the same box ; he saw it opened, and there were pikes or spears in it, and three or four files, with some lime and a hook. Witness said he came to Sheffield in October last, and saw Ronxley, who told him there were orders come for a meeting that e- vening; that Ronxley went to the meeting, and when be came back, told the witness he had had very good news, and should want the things again very soon, and would let them know when they were wanted ; he did not say where the orders came from. The evidence of William Simnet was con- firmed in the Several particulars by his brother, Edward Simnet, with this addition, that Ronx- ley told the witness that they Should take the Barracks at Sheffield, make the soldiers priso- ners, and take their arms, and then go into the town, and take the town And that Ronx- ley also said, he had provided pikes and spears, and had hid them in a garden, and that the plan was to overturn the Government and rule themselves. Thomas Ramscar, a whitesmith at Shef- field, proved, that Ronxley came to his shop to order tools some time last summer, and chalked out what he wanted, but did not say what they were, and witness could not under- stand the pattern chalked out, on which Ronx- ley fetched him one : it was like a long blade of a knife, with two edges. Ronxley also brought about eight or nine files to be made into spears, about eight or nine inches long.— Ronxley paid for making them, and witness made about ten or a dozen. Simnet was fur- ther confirmed by the evidence of Thomas Frere, and Fletcher the Constable, who iden- tified the box dug up to be the box produced. Each of the prisoners called a witness to his character, who spoke of them as honest in- dustrious men. The Learned Judge, Mr. JUSTICE ROOKE, summed up the evidence. And the Jury, on MARCH 18. three minutes deliberation, found them both GUILTY. The Judge then addressed the pri- soners, expatiated at large on the enormity of their conduct, and the sad consequences to be apprehended to this happy country, if men of their, description should accomplish their a- vowed objects, or being convicted, should escape the punishment the Legislature had thought fit to inflict on such offenders ; he ex- horted them to acknowledge the justice of their sentence, and moderation . of the punishment the laws had, inflicted on such offences. His Lordship then, proceeded to pass sentence of transportation for seven years on each of the prisoners. ________ PHILIP SAMUEL MAISTER, Esq; of Salt- coats, in the East Riding, committed the 4th of February last, was tried for the wilful mur- der of Margaret Maister, his daughter. The prisoner was found Guilty ; but as it appeared upon his trial, upon the evidence of two phy- sicians, and One of his own servants, that, he had for some time been in a state of infinity, he did not receive- sentence of death. At Sarum Assizes, Thomas Hilliker, a shear- man, of Trowbridge, was capitally convicted of being concerned with others, armed and disguised, in setting fire to a mill and premises belonging to Mr. Naish, near Trowbridge, in July last. It is hoped the conviction of this man will have a proper effect on the misguid- ed workmen, who of late, in defiance of the laws, have been guilty of so many alarming outrages. DREADFUL DUEL.— Friday morning a most extraordinary Duel took place in Hyde Park, between Lieut. W. of the Navy, and Captain J. of the Army. Some dispute arose respecting the distance, which the friends of Lieutenant W. insisted should not exceed six paces, while the Second of Captain J. urged strongly the rashness of so decisive a distance, and insisted on its being extended. At length the proposal of Lieutenant W.' s friends was agreed to, and the Parties fired per signal, when Lieutenant W. received the shot of his Adversary on the guard of his pistol, which tore away the third and fourth finger of his right hand. The Seconds then interfered to no purpose ; the Son of Nep- tune, apparently callous to pain, wrapped his handkerchief round his hand, and swore he had another which never failed him. Captain J. called his friend aside, and told him it was in vain to urge a reconciliation. They again took their ground. On Lieutenant W. receiving the pistol in his left hand, he looked stedfastly at Captain J. for some time, then cast his eyes to heaven, and said in a low voice, " Forgive me." The parties fired as before, and both fell. Captain J. received the shot through his head, and instantly expired ! Lieut. W. received the ball in his left breast, and immediately inquir- ed of his friend if Captain J.' s wound was mor- tal ? Being answered in the affirmative, he thanked Heaven he had lived thus long ; re- quested a mourning ring on his finger might be given to his sister, and that she might be assured, it was the happiest moment he ever knew.— He had scarcely finished the words when a quantity of blood burst from his wound, and he expired almost without a struggle. The unfor- tunate young man was on the eve of being mar- ried to a Lady in Hampshire, to whom for some time he had paid his addresses. We are concerned to state, that one of the packets from Harwich to Hamburgh has been lost off Heligoland. She had not long been appointed to this station ; she foundered at sea in the dreadful gales in January last, and every person perished. There were several officers and passengers on board.

All Officers on the Half- pay of the Land Forces resident in Great Britain and Ireland, who are not serving in the Militia, or who do not hold Offices under Government, are here- by required immediately to transmit to the In- specting Field Officers of the Recruiting Dis- tricts, within which they reside, an account in writing of their age, past services, and present place of abode, in order that their services may be called for as circumstances shall render it expedient: and such as think themselves, from age or infirmities, unfit for further ser- vice, even in this country, are to accompany their reports with sufficient vouchers of their inability, and the causes thereof. Such Officers on Half- pay as are serving in the Militia, or are otherwise employed under Government, (. Officers of the Yeomanry and Volunteer Corps excepted, whose reports are to be made to the Inspecting Field Officers of Districts as above- mentioned,) are to transmit similar accounts to the Secretary at War, specifying also the na- ture of the public situations they possess. The Inspecting Field Officers of Districts will make returns to the Secretary at War of the names of the Officers who shall report themselves in pursuance of the above notice. And every Of- ficer who shall neglect to make his report, either to a District Field Officer, or to the Se- cretary at War, according to the circumstances of his situation, within one month from the date hereof, will be considered as otherwise provided for, or dead, and his name will be struck off the Half- pay List accordingly. By his Majesty's Command. C. YORKE. EDINBURGH ADVERTISER fyf jfjej. and of ingratitude for the Peace which he had granted. Lord WHITWORth in answer, is said to have enumerated the various instances of bad faith on the part of France, since the Treaty of Amiens, particularly with regard to Switzerland. The latter point BONAPARTE called a bagatelle, and then threatened to Come over to England himself with three or four hundred thousand men, to enforce his claims. The reply of Lord WHITWORTH, was both dignified and firm ; and, on his Lordship's re- tiring, he immediately sent off a Courier with what had passed. The next morning the First Consul expressed a wish that what had hap- pened might be buried in oblivion : but our Ambassador informed him his request came too late, as he had already acquainted his Court with the affair. If this be a true representation of the cause of our vigorous preparations, it is probable that a proper explanation on the part of the FIRST CONSUL might prevent hostilities. But we confess we doubt the truth of the rumour. It may be that the FIRST CONSUL may have said something haughty and insulting with respect to this country j but he is not a man that speaks lightly or loosely— nor do we think it probable that he would easily be brought to confess him- self in an error, or to acknowledge that he had behaved improperly. Besides his charges a- gainst this country, if he made any to LORD wHITWORTH, cannot be viewed as the hasty ebulitions of an impetuous temper, or the effect of sudden irritation and anger. They have been repeated day after day for months— and the tone of his Official paper, in speaking of this country, has never changed. It is probable, that a day or two will decide the question of war or peace, unless BONA- PARTE wish to keep us in a state of anxiety, to lower our funds, and to put us to a great expence. If that be his object, he will delay giving any immediate explanation, and will make the differences between us the subject of a Negociation. Ministers, however, we should suppose, will not permit such delay, but will demand an immediate and categorical answer. It is again reported, that when Lord WHIT- WORTH inquired the occasion of the armaments making along the coasts of France and Hol- land, he received for answer, that " they were designed for the amusement of the CHIEF CONSUL, and for the exercise and occupation of the troops ;" and on his Lordship pressing for a more consistent answer, he was inform- ed, that " he might ascribe to them such fur- ther objects as he thought proper."

It is a fortunate circumstance that various causes have delayed the failing of the French squa- drons in tne ports of Helvoetsluys and Dunkirk occasion require their service, the patriotic corps which lately did honour to every part of the Empire, will again stand forward in its de- fence. The Moniteur, and other Paris Papers of Saturday• last, are received. They are totally silent respecting our preparations, though his MAJESTY'S Message must have been received at Paris on the Thursday before, and the dis- cussions in Parliament thereupon, on Friday. The French Five Per Cents, have fallen from 66^ to 61- J. On Tuesday, a Messenger arrived with dis- patches from Lord WHITWORTH, and a Cabi- net Council immediately met, to take them into consideration. It is believed they contain no- thing decisive. In the mean time, there is no relaxation in the vigour or activity of our preparations.— Two frigates have been sent to Cork for im- pressed seamen. The Dreadnought, of 98 guns,- is commissioned, and Lord GARDNER was expected at Portsmouth on Tuesday M. DUCLOS and M. LE COMPTE, two French Messengers, arrived on Monday with dispatches, at the French Ambassador's. They made the journey with the greatest speed, and are supposed to have brought over the answe, of the CHIEF CONSUL to his MAJESTY'S Message. Immediately after the receipt- of these dispatches, General ANDREOSSI had an interview with Lord HAWKESBURY. The following circumstances attending an interview between Lord WHITWORTH and BONAPARTE, are accredited in some of the first political circles, and are asserted to have produced the present warlike preparations : I is stated that on their meeting, the First Consul broke out into a most violent passion, accusing- England of perfidy in not surrendering Malta, first, by the failure of a House at Paris, which had the contract for supplying it with necessa- ries; and secondly, by the frost, which set in with great severity in Holland. Sir SIDNEY SMITH attended on Monday at the Admiralty, and took leave, previous to his repairing to Sheerness to join the ANTE- LOPE, on board of which he will hoist a broad pendant, as Commodore. PORTSMOUTH, March 14—" The whole of this day cannon have been mounting on the ramparts round the Garrison. The prepay tions to repel any hostile attacks that may be meditating against this Country, or for carry- ing the thunder of Britain to our enemies' coasts, are going forward here with a degree of promptitude and celerity altogether unex- ampled." On the 17th ult. the Dragon, of 74 guns, the Renown, of 74, and the monmouth, of 64 guns, sailed from Gibraltar for Malta to join the fleet there. Three French line of- battle ships were then at the back of the Rock, wait- ing for an easterly wind to pass the Gut. They were crowded with troops, and their destina- tion was announced to be for St. Domingo. The time is at length arrived for convincing the FIRST CONSUL that his arts and tricks, as well as his threats and boastings, are unavail- ing; that while our moderation is undoubted, we are ready, under the painful alternative of war. to resume hostilities with alacrity and vi- gour ; and we trust, should war be unavoidable, that we shall convince not only BONAPARTE, but all Europe, that our fleets can again meet and triumph over those of France and of all her allies and dependents. A London Jacobin Paper contains the fol- lowing insidious paragraph :—" What can be expected between such a man as the FIRST CONSUL, a man bred in camps and nursed amidst civil arms, to whom danger is habitual and war pastime, and those' who have been* dandled into politicians, and who have become Ministers by accident— the creatures of intrigue, the butterflies of a Court! Can any body think that any ' thing short of a miracle can save us from utter ruin if we go forth to battle under such auspices!" We will venture to assert, that, when our Ho- nour, our Security, and Independence areatftaks, the Country will be saved from" ruin, without a miracle, under this or under any Ministry. It will be saved under PROVIDenCe:, by its determined spirit, by its active vigour, by its proved valour, by its ample resources. It will be saved by those BRITISH feelings and prin- ciples that have raised us to a state of Prospe- rity and Pre- eminence, of Freedom, and of Wealth, which iu; rounding Nations envy, but which none of them have yet been able to equal. On Saturday evening last, a banditti, to the amount of twenty- one, composed of coal- heav- ers, & c. formed themselves into two parties, with a view to plunder; and under pretence of being authorised press- gangs, seized between forty and fifty labourers coming from their pay tables, in tiie neighbourhood of Wapping, from whom they extorted about 20I. for their libera' tion. But in the high career of their success, two real press- gangs coming up, demanded their warrants: for want of which, every one of those non- commissioned plunderers were sent off to the discharge of more honourable duties in his Majesty's service. Some produced pro- tections, but the Regulating Captain very just- ly concluded, that nothing could or ought to protect such audacious impostors. The PARIS PAPERS contain the following intelligence : " Office of the Minister for Naval Affairs. " The frigate La Fraternite sailed from St. Domingo on the 7th of August last. No news has been since received of her arrival in any port of Europe. It is therefore much feared that this frigate may have perished at sea." The importation of Refined Sugar into France is prohibited. A Squadron of one Ship of the Line, four Frigates, and a Transport, is about to sail from Brest for the East Indies. General DECAN is arrived at Brest, and is going out with the Expedition preparing for . the East Indies, as Captain General of the French Settlements in that quarter. The events that have occurred within these few days, will, in all probability, prevent this and the other Expeditions in the Dutch and French ports from sailing quite so soon as was expected. DUTCH MAIL. Letters from Constantinople state, that twelve French Commercial Commissioners, destined for different parts of the Turkish Empire, had arrived there, in the Squadron which brought thither General BRUNE and his Suite. These Commissioners, it is added, have been already acknowledged by the PORTE, and will imme diately set out for the several places of their destination. LORD ELGIN sailed from Constantinople in the night of the 16th of January. The same accounts state, that though an of- ficial notice had been, given by LORD ELGIN, ot the intended evacuation of Egypt by the British Troops, yet it was not expected to take place, for three or four months, that is to say, not until the Convention with the Beys has been carried into effect. Several Corps of French Troops in Italy are stated to be in motion, and about 10 march for different Ports on the Mediterranean.— Troops from the Italian Republic are embark- ing at Genoa for St. Domingo. The KING of SARDINIA IS still reported to have ceded that Island to GREAT BRITAIN, for twenty millions of Florins. The Trial of two men at York Assizes, for conspiring; to overturn the Government, mak- ing Pikes, & c. is published in page 172. ' This seems to be connected with, and a ramifica- tion of Col. DESPARD'S PLOT, who declared that many persons were ready to join them at Sheffield, and when it is considered that Col. DESPARD said he expected money from France, there is little doubt, but that the French were the instigators of this horrid business. At Lincoln Assizes, Miss SOPHIA MAR- SHALL, aged 24, charged by B. Scott, of Horncastle, linen draper, with stealing a piece of white lace, two remnants of printed cali- co, three pieces of muslin handkerchiefs, and a small roll of Irish linen from his shop— was found GUILTY, DEATH.— Miss Sophia Mar- shall, is a striking example of human frailty.— She was supported by friends, and supported in plenty 1 There were two other indictments for theft against her, which were not proceed, ed upon.

On Tuesday Mr. VANSITTART moved that the SPEAKER of the House of Commons do issue his Writ to the SHERIFF of AYRSHIRE, in Scotland, for the Eledtion of a Knight of the Shire, instead of WILLIAM FULLARTON, Esq; one of the Commissioners for the Settling the Island of Trinidad .— Ordered. DUBLIN, March is. On Thursday se'ennight, General PAYNE, having received information that there was to be a meeting of the deluded Combinators who have lately disgraced the county of Limerick, at Rossbrian- Wood, he, with that spirit and celerity which has marked his character on all occasions, gave directions immediately to the different Piquets to put themselves under the orders of the City Peace Officers, himself be- ing with one of them. On their march to the Wood, they came up with several parties of the " Combinators— four of whom were appre- hended by the division under the orders of the General: on one of them was found a case of pistols that were stolen from a private of the 5th Light Dragoons. " This day the Barrack Board decided upon he proposals for building Barracks at the dif- ferent stations in the County of Wicklow Moun- ains, ascertained by Colonel STEWARt and Captain TAYLOR, of the Engineers, after the Colonel had cleared the country of the armed Rebels by whom it was inverted. At the Glen of Imael there is to be a Barrack, for a Field Officer, and two hundred men.— At Glancree a Captain and one hundred.-- Laragh, ( the Se- ven Churches) a Captain and one hundred.— Glen Muraar, the same.— At Aughavana the same, and a station at Lissey Head. Thus will all the mountain tract be surrounded and com- manded by those strong stations, which will be complete by Michaelmas next. In the mean, time, two hundred armed Yeomanry are em- ployed in making the great Military Road of communication; and every possible encourage- ment will be given to Loyal men to inhabit the villages to be built near each Barrack. '". Monday last the Hon. BARON SMITH and the Hon. JUSTICE OSBORNE, arrived Limerick, and opened the Assizes. Denis Cof- fee, Timothy Coffee, Edward Banks, and Pa- trick Hogan, were found guilty of breaking into the house of Francis Callaghan, of Tory- Hill, and. flogging him ; and On Friday, Wil- liam Regan and William Shearman were found guilty . of breaking into the house of T. Con- nor, of Patrick's- well, and flogging him. Sen- tence of death was passed on the above 6 men.' THE EDINBURGH MARKETS, & c. MARK- LANE, LONDON, March 14.—" Our market was particularly thin supplied with Cora to- day.— Wheat has fetched 4s. more than Friday, and Barley 1s. and the fides were very brisk.— Oats have little variation.— Fine Beans are a little dearer ; and boiling Peafe are fel- ling at 48s. to 50s. Rye is dearer. BREAD.— On Tuelday the LORD MayOr of London ordered the price of Bread to re- main the same as lift week. The prices of Oats on Wednesday in Edin- burgh market, were from 14s. to 17s. per boll. Hemp has risen fro 1 58 to 63. By the Brig William, Captain Combs, arriv- ed at New York from Cape Francois, on the 31st of January, it appears the. town was close- Arrived at- Port- Glasgow, the 14th inst. the William, Campbell, from Trinidad, in 52 days. The island was healthy while Captain Campbell lay there, and had received a great increase of population since the arrival of Co- lonel FULLARTON. The Betty, Evans, from Cork, for Belfast and Greenock, was driven on shore on the 27th ult. about six miles west of the Ross of Kirk- cudbright, in a violent gale of wind. The car- go, consisting chiefly of porter and bacon, is Linded there, in order to have the vessel repair- ed, the hull being considerably damaged. KINGHORN, March 15.—" We are con- cerned to state that a pinnace belonging to this place, on her return froni Leith on Friday morning last, with two men and one woman passengers, is supposed to have been upset in a. sudden squall of wind. The unfortunate acci- dent was not observed from the shore, but as the oars and: rudder of the boat have since been picked up, and no tidings of those on board, there is too much reason to fear that the pas- sengers and crew, consisting of four men, Archibald Duncan, David Thompson, B. Steedman, and William Brown, have all pe- rished. No passage boat has been lost at this Ferry for a great many years, notwithstanding the number that daily pass." A. Kinghorn passage boat, in crossing on Sun- day to Leith was suddenly overtaken by a squall and was nearly lost. The mast and rig- ging in a moment fell down on the deck. Pro- videntially only one man- was hurt. They im- mediately returned to Kinghorn, and the pas- sengers- got all safe over in another boat. During tbe dreadful gale of the 26th and 47th ult. a ship came to anchor off the island of Iona. The moment the gale abated, boats put off, but, melancholy to relate, not a living creature was found on board, nor could any papers be found to trace what the fhip is, It is supposed that the crew, thinking the ship would founder, had- taken to the boat and all perished. She is a large vessel, and her cargo, as far as could be seen, consists of hemp, iron and deals. A letter, dated Loch Bay, 6th March, receiv- ed- in town, says, " The Uist Packet, reported to' be lost, it too true as the mast, with the let- ters,.- was- found ashore in Lord Rae's country. To add to the misfortune, the next packet, employed to bring home the same mail, was also lost, and the letter bags found on the shores of Rona Every person perished in both. In the last were Hugh M'Donald and a brother, Mr. Finlay, merchant in Carnish, & c'." besieged by the Insurgents, who had em- bodied, in immense numbers, for the purpose of making a general attack. To describe the dis- tress of the miserable inhabitants of that devot- ed place, is impossible ; all the stores were shut up, and business was entirely suspended— no person was suffered to walk the streetsf and every man. compelled to bear arms. About 350 French troops arrived at the Cape the latter- end of November, in a very emaciated condition ; number died before they reached the barracks. On Thursday se'ennight the Associate Con- gregation in Skinners Close of this city, una- nimously made choice of the Rev Mr. TAYLOR, minister of Renton, to be their minister ; the Rev. Mr. G. HILL, preached and presided. Early on Tuesday morning a gentleman was attacked in North Hanover Street, by two men in concert with a woman ; he was struck at se- veral times, and at last knocked down, and robbed of all the money he had on him ; one of them swore he had a knife in his pocket with which he would stab him to the heart, unless he delivered up his watch, & c. but while they were in the act of taking off his great coat, he got so clear as to be able to ring at a street door, on which they made off with their booty. Wednesday, three respectable farmers from Cathcart parish, were brought before the Ma gistrates of Glasgow, on the complaint of the Fiscal, for riding in a violent and furious man ner through the streets of that city, to the great danger of the inhabitants. They ac- knowledged their fault, and immediately paid a suitable fine, with the expences. James Taylor, from Linlithgow, accused of stealing butter and cheese, and having pleaded GUILTY before the High Court of Justiciary,' was sentenced to be banished Scotland for life. On Wednesday, Betty Alexander, was drum med through the streets of this city, pursuant to a Sentence of the Magistrates, for stealing goods from shops. On the 1oth February, thirty publicans were, at the instance of the Society for the Suppres- sion of Vice, convicted by the Magistrates of Union Hall, in the Borough, London, in the penalty of 10s, each, and costs, for having suf fered tippling in their houses on the LORD' DAY, notwithstanding the previous notice sent them by the Society to desist. On Monday, the Magistrates of Glasgow, had under consideration the case of Mrs. Kil- patrick, changekeeper in the Bridgegate, and Widow Henderson, residing in the Stockwell, accused at the instance of the Fiscal, of having shut their doors against Mary Brounlie, a poor unfortunate girt who used to haunt about their houses, when very ill of a flow fever, in conse- quence of which she died at Mrs. Henderson's door in the open streets upon a cart, upon which some passengers laid her. The prisoners' did not deny the facts, but pleaded that they were in no way related to the deceased, and had given her lodging merely for charity, but perceiving that she would not live long they determined to get quit of her, as the expence of her funeral was what they could ill afford. The Magistrates sentenced Mrs. Kilpatrick to be imprisoned one month, and to pay a fine of two guineas, and banished Mrs. Henderson from the city and liberties for three years. On Monday morning, at half past nine o'- clock, a most alarming fire broke out in the cotton works at Woodside. Just as the city firemen arrived with their engines on the spot, the flames were extinguished by the workmen. A dreadful fire happened at Cork on the 3d inst. in the house of Mr. Murphy, pawnbroker in Hoare's Lane, and from the narrowness of the place, the conflagration was so menacing, that nothing but the most extraordinary exer- tions could check its progress. No efforts were able to save the house where it broke out, and all its contents, amounting to about 30,000!. being the property of many poor persons, Were consumed to allies. Mr. Mur- phy's, losses are considerable, but the unfortu- nate people who crowded round the ruins ol the house, the proprietors of the pledged ar- ticles- which had been destroyed, exhibited a melancholy scene of misery and lamentation. Above 1500 watches have been consumed, and a vast quantity of plate. The fire is attributed to some foot, which fell down blazing and set fire" to the floor. Mr. Pike's Bank, near the place, was with difficulty saved; ADVERTISER for 1803. BIRTHS. At his houfe, in Great Cumberland place, Lon- don, the Lady of WILLIAM BuSHBY, Esq; of a son.

PATTERSON, daughter of Colonel Patterson. DEATHS. At London, after a short illness, in the 67th year of his age, his Grace FRANCIS EGERTON, DUKE of BRIDGEWATER. Of those illustrious characters who have done honour, not only to the British Peerage, but to the name of English- men, the DUKE of BRIDGEWATER deserves to be placed in the first rank.— That time and for- tune which too many others, especially in the' higher ranks, have, devoted to purposes, if not injurious to society, at least useless, his Grace spent in pursuits that intitle him to be consider- ed as a Benefactor to his Country, and a pro- ' moter of her Commercial Interest. The DUKE of BRIDGEWATER projected and executed the first Canal ever made in England, which has been followed by so many Canals, and which has so. greatly improved the Commerce, Trade, and Convenience, of the Country. He at first met with great opposition in both Houses of Par- liament, but by perseverance, carried through his great objects. These great and stu- pendous works, known by the name of the Duke of Bridgewater's Canals, so lau- dably and patriotically undertaken, and brought to perfection by his Grace, to the great tem- porary detriment of his private fortune, are no well and generally known to be here de- scribed, In all that part of the country their great and growing utility is most sensibly ex- perienced, and to these the Port of LIVERPOOL is in a great degree indebted for its present o- pulence and prosperity. Of late years, those works have been exceedingly productive, and are understood to have afforded immense re- turns to their illustrious Projector. . His Grace has left a will, by which he bequeaths his im- mense property in a very clear manner. His Canals are left to EARL GOWER, with rever- fion to his second son, and a strict entail upon his heirs, in failure of whom they go to the heirs male of the LORD CHIEF BARON, and failing them, to the children of the Bishop of CARLISLE. His pictures worth 150,000l are entailed in the same line. To General EGERTON, now EARL of BRIDGEWATER, he bequeaths estates, to the amount of 30,000!. per annum. The Duke's return on the Income Tax, was 1 io. oool. per annum,. He was very liberal in supporting Public, institutions. He subscribed L. 100,000 to the Loyalty Loan, which he paid all in ready money. He had. 600, oool, in the Funds when he died. His Grace fell into a slumber at twelve on Monday se'ennight, and slept apparently composed till three, when he spoke to his at- tendants. He fell again into a slumber, and at four his servants found him quite dead. He expired without a struggle or a groan. At his house in Glocester- place, Sir JAMES WALLACE, Knt. He was made a Post Cap- tain January 10, 1771, a Rear- Admiral April 12, 1794, a Vice- Admiral June 1, 1795, and Admiral of the Blue January 1, 1801. He had distinguished himself in many actions; and a few years ago was Admiral and Governor of Newfoundland. On Friday, in the 78th year of his age, the Right Hon.

Extract of a letter from KINGSTON, JAMAI- CA, Dec. 1803. " Of the numberless victims who fell a sacri- fice to the scourge. of our island, the Yellow Fever, few wept to an untimely grave with more generat regret, than your young friend Capt. ALLAN M'LEAN, of the 6th Batt. 6oth Regiment, who notwithstanding the best medi- cal advice, paid the great debt of nature her- j on Saturday the 13th ult. at the early age ot 19 years and 5 months. You know he was the only son of Mr. M'LEAN, Inverscadle, and grandson of the late Sir ALLAN M'LEAN, of Argyleshire. Perhaps no young man, ever' possessed qualities more calculated to conciliate general good will and esteem ; to a lovely face and stout perfon ( nearly six feet high,) he ad- ded a suavity of manner, and address so en- gaging, as secured him friends wherever he went; and the sincere affection of his brother Officers was strongly depicted in their coun- tenances, when paying the last mournful duty to his remains." At Tipperary, on the 25th ult. Miss COR- BET ; while in the humane act of applying a bandage to the broken arm of a young gen- tleman, a visitor, incautiously let her clothes communicate with the fire at which she was sitting, and notwithstanding the most prompt assistance, she was burned in so dreadful a manner, as to survive that night only. On the 4th instant, at Green, in the parish of Dornock, Mr. GEORGE WISHART, aged 64 years. His father Thomas Wishart, was born in 1639 ; was 100 years old when George was born; and died at the very great age of 125 years. In consequence of a fall from one of the arches of the Bridge at Kelso, SIMON RO- MANES, Blacksmith, an industrious man. The Magistrates of Dumfries have present- ed an elegant Sword to Lieut.- Colonel JAMES STEWART of the 42d regiment. The follow- ing correspondence between the PROVOST and Colonel STEWART took place on the occasion : SIR, I HAVE the honour to be delegated by the Magis- trates and Council of Dumfries, to wait upon you in this manner, and in their name to present you with this Sword, as a testimony of sincere esteem for you as their Townsman, and of high respect for your mi- litary services to your King and - Country. Having discharged this very agreeable duty, it only remains for me to assure you of the sincere satisfaction I feel, in cordially uniting with the Magistrates and Coun- cil in these sentiments, : and in this public testimony of regard.

That my conduct, has been known to most of them, during the long period of my services with: that corps, is a source of satisfaction which greatly enhances, in my estimation, this testimony OF their maried approbation. This Sword shall be devoted to the service of the Standard to which it is now at- tached; and to deserve this flattering expression of their esteem, shall be the ambition of my life. Con- vey to them, Sir, the assurance of my warmest gra- titude; and accept of my best thanks for the polite and obliging manner, in which you have fulfilled their commission.

The Justices of Peace of the County of Inverness, have given judgment about the GLENELG ROAD, which had been for some time partly interrupted, and which is of consequence to be known to Drovers, who have dealings with the ISlE of SKyE, and neighbouring Countries.— It is as follows : " INVERNESS, 13d October, 1802.

' The Justices having considered the petition for the Right Honourable Lord MACDoNALD I and others, answers, replies, duplies and haill process, in respect, it is not disputed, that the road in question has been the ordinary road of com- munication betwixt Shealhouse, and the ferry of Kylerea, leading to the Island of Skye: That it has been used as such for time immemorial by horses and carts : That it is a part of the Military Road, which was formed between Fort Augustus, to the Barracks' of Barnera, by Shealhouse aforesaid, and that it has been frequently repaired by the authori- ty of the Justices of the District, as a Public Road, in virtue of the powers vested ill them by the A6s of Parliament, authorising Statute Labour and Com- mutation Money.

Besides the other advantages which this property possesses, it is situated along the banks of a river, in a delightful country, where the sportsman may find a- musement with the gun or fishing rod, and the pro- perty has upon itself a most agreeable situation for building; so that, upon the whole, a more desirable purchase is seldom to be met with. The articles of roup, and title- deeds, are in the hands of Charles Husband, writer in Perth, who will inform as to further particulars. LANDS IN ARGYLESHIRE. Upset Price Fixed.
