THE SALISBURY AND WINCHESTER JOUIt] AND GENERAL ADVERTISER OF WILTS, HANTS, DORSETi AND SOMERSET. [ NUMBER 3705. VOLUME LXX1II.] MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1808. PRICE SIXPENCE. f Stamp E ( P:. rer at Duty.. laid P.' ii Monday's and Tuesday's Posts. FOREIGN NEWS. LISBON, January 16. THE scarcity here is chiefly confined to bread. We are supplied with beef from Spain, but all the corn in the country will not last until the end of the present month. It is now ascertained that the Russian ships of war in the Tagus were bound to England to refit, when the damage they received 011 their passage compelled them to take shelter in that river, where they soon learnt the rupture between Russia and England. They are undergoing slight repairs, and are in great want of provisions and necessaries. General Junot has issued a decree, by which all goods, jewels, and silver, as well as moveables and landed property of any nature whatsoever, belonging to any individual subject of Great Britain, found in anv territory of the Portuguese dominions, are confis- cated. All goods of British manufacture, of any kind whatsoever, are also confiscated. LONDON, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3. Yesterday afternoon dispatches were received at the Admiralty, and at Lord Castlereagh's Otlice, from Admiral Cochrane and General Bowyer, announcing ' the surrender of the Danish islands of St. Thomas, St. John's, and St. Croix, to his Majesty's arms, 011 the 22d and 25th of December last, without any loss On our part. By the Hawke, Aitken, arrived in the Clyde, from Boston; newspapers to the 4th of January, inclusive, have been rweeived. Prom the general tenor of the articles they contain, it is obvious that the late measure of an embargo has been carried into effect by Mr. Jefferson's party. The proposition was brought into Congress as if by an automa- ton ; all the President's party sat ill sullen silence ; nothing said could induce them to open their mouths— till the vote was put: while those on the opposite side deprecated it as fraught with ruin to the interest, to the liberties, to the independence of the United States. O11 the last day of the discussion, the House sat twelve hours. Mr. Randolph at first approved of the embargo, but perceiving its motive, objected to the bill as calculated to seal the death- warrant of American liberties. " I will stake my life upon it," '• aid Mr. Masters, in delivering his sentiments on this subject, " the hand of Napoleon is in this thing." Mr. Elliott ex- pressed his apprehensions that the time was fast coming when America was to be added to Holland, Naples, & c. " Who knows," said Mr. R. " but that at this moment the Prince Ptegent of the iuture King of America, who is now puling in his nurse's arms, may be within these very walls." The embargo has cau- ed numerous failures, and a total stagnation of all trade. A house in New York has failed for 800,000 dollars.— Flour has fallen to 4 and 4} dollars. The American Government is stated to have pur- chased 20,000 stand of arms in Holland, at four dol- lars each ; and it is added that they are now on their passage over. A bag of letters from the Cape of Good Hope, to the 30tb of October, reached the Post- office yesterday. They announce the arrival at the Cape of the Monarch and Harbinger transports, with the 8th regiment on board, from Monte Video, on the 30th of October, under convoy of tut1 Staunch gun- brig. The Flora and Fox transports lan foul of each other at sea, 011 the 24th of October, and sustained considerable damage— the Monarch was in a vary bad state when she reached the Cape. A violent gale pre- vailed at the Cape on the 20th, when most of the ships in the bay drove from their anchors, but the American vessel Juno was the only vessel stranded. The Warley lost three anchors. A Russian frigate is blockaded by an English frigate cf considerable infeiior force at Trieste; the Commander of the latter sent a complimentary note to the Imperialist, inviting him to come out, assuring him th;'. hi- was the only British vessel in the neighbourhood, and observing she carried fewer guns and men. The Russian was not wanting in courtesy in his reply, but he declined the meeting. In addition to the 20,000/. lately granted by the King to the Duke of York, the following lists of grants, in like' manner the produce of the Admiralty droits, has been published:— In October and November, 1803,— to the Duke of Kent £ 10,000 1 Duke of Gloucester.. £ 1.0,500 Daks of Cumberland 15,000 | Princess of Wales.... 20,000 And in April, 3 306,— to the Duke of Clarence .. £ 20,000 | Duke of Kent £ 10,000 Duke of Sussex 40,000 | Duke of Cumberland 5,000 which, with the late gran: to the Duke of York, gives a total of 199,500/. It has been also affirmed, that the recent grant to the Duke of York of 20,0001. from the droits of Admiralty, is not the first gift from the same fund which it has pleased his Majesty to make to his Royal Highness. That he received 20,000/. from the proceeds of the Spanish frigates seized at the breaking out of the war;— that each of his Royal Brothers were likewise partakers in those spoils, and that the Prince of Wales shared with the Captains by whom the captures were made. A few evenings since two men, by means of a ladder, entered the Prince of Hesse public- house, Fieldgate- street, Whitechapel, about seven o'clock in the evening, and stole 25 watches, belonging to sailors, gold chains, seals, gold broaches, rings, 100 guineas, and a club- box with all the money and accounts belonging to a benefit society. MARK- LANK, Monday, Feb. S. The supply of Wheat at the opening of to- day's market appearing extremely scanty particularly from Essex, higher prices were asked in general and an advancc of about is. per quarter was obtained under this impression, for a small quantity, at an early hour; after- wards we had a very considerable accession from Suffolk and Kent, with an entire cessation of all briskness in the trade, last Monday's terms barely maintained for any thing, and a greater proportion of the arrival ( Red Wheat especially) left unsold at the close, than we have known for many weeks • upon the whole we consider the currency as unaltered from Monday the 1st ir. st.

EMEN, ITAKE the earliest opportunity of expressing to you, the sincere gratification I feel on " being re- instated as your Representative in Parliament, an honour you have now con- ferred on me for the sixth time, and which it has ever been the ambition of my life to deserve. No defence having been attempted against the petition which I presented on the double return, I have been reluc- tantly precluded from laying before a Committee of the House of Commons all those extraordinary transactions of the last Election, by which the number of votes received by the Re- turning Officer was such, as to give my opponent a colourable equality with myself on the Poll; thus depriving you ( for six months at least) of a Representative. But although the ends of public Justice may not, for want of such investiga- tion, have been so completely answered, yet the termination of this contest has afforded the most ample and satisfactory proof of the firm grounds on which we stood ; a truth so self- evident,, that resting my cause simply on its own merits, 1 have now only to repeat my high sense of the gratitude tor your continued favours, and to assure you of the zeal with which 1 shall uniformly endeavour to promote the interests of the Borough of Chippenham. I have the honour to be, GENTLEMEN, Your much obliged and faithful servant, JAMES DAWKINS. Harhy- street, Feb. 10, 1S08. [ 506 WIMBORNE MJNSTER, DORSET.

HOUSE OF LORDS. MONDAY, Feb. « .] Tht J) ule of Norfolk stated, that after the fullest consideration be could pay to ths subject the expedition to Copenhagen, he felt it to be expe- dient t > extend his application for papers in the form of four distinct motions. To tlv three first, iie understood, no objection would b » made ; he should therefore propose tii " n without a iv comment. [ Th" three motions were in substance, that the partieu- 1 aid dates of such information as bad been received from liis Majesty's Ministers at Comnihagen, as far as related to tii' naval preparations on the part of Denmark, be laid M . re the 1.' mse. J These being read and agreed to, The Duke of Norfolk again l ose and said, that the equit- ahl1 orineiplts due from one independent nation to another were utterly abandoned, and the fleet of a neutral State s iie. l without any justification. He was aware that a n<<- >• •• Sty might exist that would supply a complete vindica- tion 5 but the Declaration subscribed with bis Majesty's name, which had received the sanction of the British Government, and which must be attributed to the advice of the servants of the Crown, he would venture to say, after an attentive perusal of that instrument, discovered no oieli necessity as had been pretended : that attempt at justification which had been submitted to the eyes of ail Europe had failed, arid we were exposed to the disgrace consequent 011 this failure. \ V indeed had gained posses- sion of the Da . isli navy, but by that possession we had throw, 1 Denmark into the arms of France. Russia aho, by such an aggression, was converted into an inveterate enemy— Russia, fVyui whence our arsenals are supplied with the most valuable articles for the maintenance of our maritime strength— Russia, who herself possessed a power-, ful navy, which would become a must important accession to the naval resources of France. His Grace concluded with moving, that the papers be laid on the table. Marquis IVellesleij thought the nece sity alone of the measure was a complete vindication. What constituted thij necessity ? 1. The designs of France;— i. The means France possessed to accomplish those designs ;— 3. The concurrence of Dontnark with those designs;— 4. The im- minent danger that hung over the country. To the last moment of the contest with Russia there was some hope of a, n sling the progress of the French triumphs. After the battls: of Friedlanrl, the hope of the Continent was converted into despair. Tile naval resources of every ma- ritime state were to be concentrated tor our de . truction. Did any Noble Lord doubt that to Zealand she directed her attention, and was it not of the highest importance to dis- appoint her purposes. This plan was not confined to Den- mark ; it was to be extended to Portugal; and in both countries all British subjects were to be seized— every 1 leans of oppression w- as to be employed— the combined f 11 cos of these kingdoms were to be directed to complete the punishment of the oppressors of the seas, the enemies to the freedom of navigation throughout the world. His Lordship th - n entered into a course of reasoning, to sheiv that Denmark could not have defended Zealand against Fiance. Nice enquiries into the political attachments of Deumak were not, in the present circumstances, necessary; it was sufficient to shew, that she was absolutely depend- ent upon France; anil the unavoidable conclusion was, that she would be subservient to tile purposes of France. From e. il th it had been urged on these various departments of the subject, he would draw three natural inferences. 1st. It was the purpose of France to seize the Danish fleet. 2d. It was in the power of Fraucp to seize it. Id. Den- maik had 110 adequate means of resistance, The Danish fleet then would have been added to the navy of Ruisia, and the subjection of the Sweedish fleet would have pre- cipitately followed 5 and thus the whole of the floating strength of these three powers would have been under the eont. ool of our enemy, ft would have been no trifling ac- cession ; 40 sail of the line would have been planed iui a commanding situation for the attack of the vulnerable parts of Ireland, and for a descent upon the coasts of Eng- land or Scotland; and in opposition to this formidable navv the Admiralty could not have assigned any competent force without weakening our stations in the Mediterra- nean, in the Atlantic, and in tile Indian Seas, at a time win n it was most necessary to maintain our superiority in all these situations. The great maxims of the law of na- tions nj- re founded on the laws of nature ; and the law of security or self- preservation was, among these, the most important and sacred. Could their Lordships point out any place 011 the map of Europe wher* any oue dare breathe a sentiment adverse to the Ruler of France ? Was not the subluxation not oply of the Continent, but of the body anil mind of every individual on its surface, complete? F. om these considerations, he hoped that the conduct of Ministers would he respected and approved. Mrrl tyutehin- Mn said, the very able and eloquent speech of tlji} Noble Lord who had just sat down, had not afford; d any Justification satisfactory to his mind of the expedition to Copenhagen. The Noble Lord had failed in proving that Zealand could not have been effectually defended, < S* en if the French were in possession of Holstuin and . lut- ltnd. Tie was of opinion, that, even supposing the French to haVe beeri in possession of Holstein and Jutland, that still Zealand might have been defended with effect against the French arm'. He had been employed on a very im- portant m'ssi in, and lie thought it the uiore necessary to say something respecting that mission in consequence of partial extracts from his letters tuvmg been communicated in another place, by which he had been held out as giving opinions which were never delivered by him. The Rus ia. i army in Poland never amounted to more than 70,000 men, with the exception of two detached divisions, amounting to about 30,003. The French troops were estimated at 159,000. From the disasters sustained by the former, and after the unfortunate battle of Fit dland, the loss of the Russians aril noted to 40,000 men, they lost also 1898 Oliieers, and 9' J Generals, lie was then perfectly con- vinced that Russia must make peace' with ' f'ra ee. t • be- lieved also that the Emperor of !''..' ia wee sincere in his desire to mediate, if possible, 1 .. « ! » c\ : i tnis c ' un- try and France; but at all e •• • ; • ie thru believed that the reset: ::: of peace en i :. :..'-/ might have been preserved between Great Britain and Russia. The treaty of Tilsit was signed on. the 7th of July. " On the 2;) d of August, my Lords, I had a conv rsation with the Emperor of Russia at Kamincostroff. His Imperial My- sty asked me- whether I had not admitted to Count Siro- gonofr, three days after the battle of Friedlan 1, that it was necessary for hkn to make peace ? I told him that I had done so, that I was of that opinion then, wnich subsequent events had confirmed; that I thought myself bound in justice to him, and to myself, publicly to avow it, which I should con- tinue to do as long as I lived. His Imperial Majesty said, we are then both agreed on the necessity thcie is to make peace, I answered in the affirmative. " His imperial Majesty proceeded to state, that he had offered his mediation to England ; that he attached 110 false vanity ( gloriole was the French word) to the acceptance or rejection of his mediation ; but that it was his most sincere anil anxious wish that England should make peace, as he was sure that it was his interest, and also that of Europe, and ours, that we should restore tranquillity to the world. I said to his Imperial Majesty, that he had not given sufficient time for England to accept or reject his. mediation, because a much longer period than a month must eiapse before any answer could Ice received ; and though the dispo- sition of " my mind inclined towards peace, I, nor no other man in England would accept it, but on conditions the mosl reasonable and honorable ; that 11s far as we were concerned, the events ojf the war had been highly favourable. " To which his Imperial Majesty replied, that the time allowed was of no importance, because we might take three or four months, if we pleased to accept or reject his media- tion ; but his anxious wish an I desire was, that we should make peace. That he had a perfv - t knowledge of the feelings and character of th,: people of England; that he had been made acquainted by'Bonaparte with the conditions . of peace proposal to he offered ; and that he had no doubt that even I myself would consider them to be highly reasonable and honourable. " Some confidential conversation followed, which I do not think - myself at hbcrtv to disclose; but from what then passedt as I have already stated, I was justified in believing, that the relations of peace and amity might have been pre- served betwetn the two countries. It has been stated in ano- ther place, fhat 1 had given an opinion, that if the attack on Copenhagen had not' taken place, Russia would not have gone to war with thils country. My Lords, I never gave any such opinion, nor do I mean to say, that if that attack had not been made, there would have been no war with Russia ; but ! mean to say, that the result of that expedition did ma- teriafly change- the relations between Great Britain and Russia, and fftve rise to sentiments of a very hostile nature at the Court of Petersburg!}.' Intelligence of the result of the attack 011 Copenhagen arrived at St. Petersburg on the 27th oriMth of August. Oil the 4th of September I saw the Emperor a second time at Kamincostroff. " His Impeiial Majesty began the conversation by asking me, what 1 thought of our attack upon Copenhagen ? " I replied, that 1 was entirely ignorant of the circurrt stances which had occasioned that attack, but that I hoped the Administration in England could justify themselves, and prove to the world that the Danes were on the eve of joining all their forces to the French, to make common causc against England. " Hrs Imperial Majesty told me in fc- ply, that it was im- possible for me to be of that opinion, if 1 would recollect the repeated conversations which had taken place between us, on the subject of Denmark, at Bartensteiu, in which he told me that he had used every effort in his power to bring forward the Crown Prjnce of Denmark, and to induce hini to join the coalition against Prance. The answers of the Prince had al- ways been explicit and uniform, that he had maintained for many years a system of neutrality, in which he was deter- mined to persevere, as the people whom he governed had flourished and prospered under it ; and th- t uc consideration should ever induce him to depart from it.— His Imperial Ma- jestv a. i* ed, that I must be acquainted with the decision of character which belonged to the Crown Prince, that nothing was so difficult as to shake his determinations, or to induce hira to change any line of conduct which he na.- l once adopted ; and that he was sure np connection existed between We French and Danish Government previous to on; attack 011 Copenhagen. " 1 then said, that I believed Lord G. I,. Gower had de- livered to his Imperial Majesty's Minister a note on the sub- ject j to which his Imperial Majesty answered tbat ho had, but that the contents of itwefe nugatory, as it contained no sufficient explanation, or olfer of satisfaction. His Imperial ?* Iajesty then proceeded to state the ftreat concern which our unjustifiable aggression had given him ; that the French Go- vcrnriieut never had done any thiifp. so strong— that it justified everything they had done or might do he. eafter. If such proceeding were admissible, there was an end of all those relations which had usually influenced the conduct of nations towards each other; that every body was at liberty to do just what tlicv pie ised, and that he might attack Sweden to- mor- row. fl: s tro;!.<*, u Majesty then told me, in the most peremptory language^ tone, and manner, that he would have satisfaction, complete satisfaction, for this unprovoked ag- gression. That it was his duty as Emperor of Russia to demand it, and that he would have it 5 and he asked me, whethet even I myself could venture to differ with him on that sub- ject ? He then said that he was bound to Denmark by the most solemn treaties tnd engagements, which treaties and engagements he was determined to adhere to and fulfil. His Imperial Majesty then added, that he supposed we meant to m ike an attack on Cronstadt; he did not know what the event of that attack natgllt be, but this he knew, that he was determined to resist to trie last man, and to prove himself not entirely nmvorthy of filling that high station to which it had pleased Providence to cail him. " I told his Imperial M jesty, that I had strong reason to hope and believe, that no attack would be made oil Crortst. idt. His Imperial Majesty said he wis prepared for such an event, apd had taken his determination upon it, which was that which he had before stated to me. 1- Ie then closed the con- versation, bv repeating with much emphasis, that he would hare satisfaction for Denmark." After these Conversations, can it, said his Lordship, be maintained by any one, that the attack upon Copenhagen had 110 effect upon the Emperor of Russia? He would never cease to assert, e long as he existed, that that at- tack was the immediate causc of the war with Russia. Lord Erskine observed, that if Ministers uid not. pro- duce proofs sufficient to satisfy the House that the attack upon Copenhagen was a ease of extreme necessity, he had a right to presume that, they had them not, and that they had no existence in point of fact. He was sorry to see the British Government degenerate into the servile imitator of the Ruler of France. The first great breach which had been made in the public moral code of Europe was by revolutionary France. That example we were following. She assigned the Treaty of Pilnitz as a reason foHmrsting in upon and over- runuing Germany, and we assigned the Treaty of Til. it as a eause of attacking Denmark, and seizing her fleet. Stf tiiat we, who first engaged in this war as the conservators of political morality, became in the end its flagrant violators, Jj'tfd Baringdon opposed the motion. The Earl of Hurkint'liam- ihire supported it. Lord ffarrowSi/ referred to the dissolution of tile mari- time confederacy in I60f, and presumed that it was the recollection of the splendid achievement by which it was effected, which 111 ide us suppose out - elves in such profound security, and speak with such contempt of the naval power of Denmark. How were Ministers to draw the extremely nice and evanescent line, between probable and meditated hostility? Were they to anticipate the danger, or stand with their arms folded until it came upon them ? The danger from Denmark was of that description, that it was incumbent upen Ministers to take the earliest opportunity to ward it off. The Earl of Hloira asked if we were to renounce the high principles upon which we had hitherto acted, and sanction, by following his example, all the enormities and outrages of the Ruler of France ? What" proof had Mi- nisters of the hostile di position of Denmark, or of the probability of her fleet being placed at the disposal of France ? Denmark had maintained her neutrality through- out all the wars since the commencement of the French revolution, and she probably might have continued, were it not for the recent atrocious attack upon her, to do so. Toe Earl of Liaieriek approved of the conduct of Ministers. - The Earl of Jer. ni/ su iported the motion. Lord TJa^ vkeshUry said, the Noble Huron ( Lord Hut- chinson) had completely mistaken hi. Noble Friend, when he supposed him to have contended that it was justifiable to depart from the general principles of morality. He shotild contend, in the first place, that in the expedition to Copenhagen, there had been no violation whatever of the principles, of the law of nations. The first principle which the law of nations i iculcated was '- elf- preservation, coiabi . ed with < K! I-.> olenCS and good- will to our fellow- creatures. Instating the grounds upon which he considered the measure to be siri tl.' justifiable, he should resolve them into the following heads: 1st. Whether the House believed that there was a design on the part of the enemy to form a great maritime confederacy against this country, and to lay hold of the Beet of Denmark to effect this pur- pose ; S> d. Whether it was practicable for him to carry this design into exee. iti m, either by absolute force or by intimidation; an I, 3dly. Whether the object was of sufficient magnitude and importance to justify a devia- tion from the ordiniry rules of proceeding. On the Ill'st point, as to the intentions of Bonaparte, there could be little or 110 doubt.— The next point was, the practica- bility of accomplishing this object. In considering t ils, it was necessary to aonsi ler the situation of France, after the battle of Friedland, a id the treaty of Tilsit. All the great Continental nations th n lay prostrate at the feet of France. As to the power of Denmark to resist the attempts of France, it was evidi nt that an attack upon Zeaiend was not necessary, in order to induce Iter to join with France, especially when that power was ill good understanding with Russia. It had Ueen argued, tbat even if the French armies had occupied Holsteiu and Jutland, they could not have crossed the Belt, or invade Zealand. To this be must answer, that he had the highest military authorities for supposing, that the invasion of Zealand from Holstein was very practicable. The Danish resources alone could not defend Zealand from France, and it was not to be expected that they would have called for a British force to protect them. It would not have been necessary for France to have invaded Holstein : the bare menace would have been sufficient to influence the determination of Denmark. As to the third point, the magnitude of the object for which the expedition was ordered, must consider sixteen sail of the line, in so advanced a state of preparation, as a mo3t important object. As to their quality, whether they were a littla better or a little worse, they would have employed at least an equal number in blockading them, if they had been in the hands of the enemy; or rather, they would have required many more than an equal number, according to the system of continued blockade. The Earl of St-^ liieeat differed from the Noble Lord, with respect to the practicability of defending tiie passage of the Belt. Lord Grey replied at considerable length to Lord Havvkesbury. He adverted to the date of Iris Majesty's order for the expedition to Copenhagen, and the period when the treaty of Tilsit was signed, the former being 011 the 2fst of July, and the latter not until the 7th of August; from whence he argued, that it was physically impossible lii< Majesty's Ministers could have had that, information respecting the secret articles of the treaty of Tilsit which they pretended to. He then proceeded to contrast the advantages we had gained with those we had lost by the expedition. We had obtained 18 sail of the line, but in such a state, as appeared by the report of the shipwrights, that it would take Very nearly as much time to fit them for actual service, as would be required to build as many new vessels of the same rate from the keels, in our dock- yards ; while we had not only lost for ever the friendship of Den- mark, animated all the irritable feelings of that country, roused the hatred of Rusfia, of the North of Germany, and of the very people, of our last and only ally Sweden, against 11s; but we bad thrown into the hands of Bonaparte 18,000 Danish seamen, to man his own fleet, or any other he could muster against us. We had given him a place of arms, and a dock- yard, with all the naval resources of Denmark, and the. countries bordering 011 th: Baltic; which wo dd enable hint to replace those ships within a very short period. We had closed the passage of the Baltic completely against our trade ; and we had cemented more firmly than ever tbat northern confederacy, which Minis- ters boasted that by the success of their enterprise, they had completely put down. 1mrd Mulgrave, in a speech of considerable length, defended the attack on Copenhagen. Lord Sidmouth reprobated the attack. A division then took place, on which there were— For the Motidn, Contents 3.",, Proxies 13— 18.— Against it, Non- contents 68, Proxies 37— 105.— Majority 57. At flvo o'clock onTuesday morning the House adjourned. TUESDAY, Feb.!).] Counsel were heard in the Irish Appeal, Stafford v. Drew. Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. MONDAY, Feb. 8 ] Mr. TVhitbread, in a sharp and spirited speech, accused Mr. Canning of having, in the debate tin Thursday last, read partial extracts from the public dispatches of his predecessors in office, so as to answer his own momentary purpose, by arptariag to justify the bombardment of Copenhagen, when the whole! of the dispatches taken together, would have had a directly contrary tendency. Such conduct was extremely repre- hensible, and prcgrtaHt with serious mischiefs to the coun- try : he therefore moved for a copy of the dispatches of Lord Howick to Mr. Garlike, dated Dee. 3, laob', and the answer of Mr. Garlike thereto. Mr. Conning-, in reply, said, that the extracts he had read, be deemed essential to the proof of a particular point, and had not road them with the purposes imputed to him, of mis- statement or perversion. Lord Temple reprehended the conduct of the Right Hon. Secretary, in reading garbled extracts from dispatches of his predecessors, on the same grounds with Mr. Wlritbread. The Secretary at. [ Far spoke shortly in vindication of the seizure of the Danish fleet. Mr. Tierney begged the House to beware of establishing a precedent, which would hereafter warrant a Minister in reading garbled extracts for Iris own justification, and after- wards in withholding that information which the full docu- ment could furnish. Air. Horner askcil what was the coarse the Right Hon. Gentleman had pursued ! In justifying a great and impor- tant measure to the House, he had read part ol' a docu- ment, which part had induced many to suppose that the opinion of the Noble Lord who Wrote the letter was in favour of the measure, whereas the reverse would prove to be the case, had the whole of tbat document been read. The Chancellor of the Exuhei/ uqr said, that the produc- tion of the paper wou^ d cause great public incouvei'iieuce and danger. Mr. ll ' uulham thought the conduct of the Right Hon. Secretary had been mo t extraordinary and unprecedented, and that, 110 man ought to be trusted who would garble papers of this kind: he therefore called 011 the House to support its own dignity, by shewiug a detestation of such conduct. Sir John Orde.<\\ ought this was not a time to cripple the hands of ins . tWesty's Ministers. Mr. Lyttletan SauL that in voting with Ministers 011 Wednesday night lasr, lie was greatly influenced by those papers which had been partially read. He thought, there- fore, it was but comm in justice to the Noble Lord who wrote the letter in question, as well as to Mr. Garlike, that the whole of the papers should be given. Mr. Sharpe said, he thought the motion ought to be acceded to on every principle of fairness and justice. Mr. ( Fh{ thread congratulated the House on the idea, that tiie motion, whether lost or not, would have the good effect of preventing the Right Hon. Gentlemen from again making use of garbled letters. Mr. fjyUteton and Mr. Canning said a few words in explanation ; after which a divi- ion took jdace : F" > r the Motion Ayes 73 Against it Noes 157 Majority 84. Mr. Sliarpe then said, tbat as tit, ! Ion. . Member had come forward on the subject, he rose to give notice that he would, on an early day, submit to the House certain resolutions relative to the expedition to- Copenhagen, and to the conduct of Ministers respecting the same. After some routine business, the House adjourned at ten o'clock. TUESDAY, Feb. 9.] Committee? w; re ballot ted to try the Horsham and Saltash Election Petitions. Mr. fhtskmon moved for copies of certain letters which passed between the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Governor, & c. of the Bank, respecting the Unclaimed Dividends.— Ordered. SirJ. Newport moved that a Copy of the Charter of the Bank of Ireland ; also an account of the Balances in that Bank, from the 5th of Dec. 1807, to the 5th of Jan. 180 belonging to the different Public Offices, be laid before the House. Sir F. liar deft said he wished to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer a question, respecting the grant lately made by his Majesty to the Duke of York, of 30,000/. All be wa ited to know was, bv what authority his Majesty could dispose of so much property at plea- ure. The Chancellor of tht! Exchequer replied, that the pro- perty belonged to his Majesty, which accrued to him from droits of the Admiralty, & c. Such grants were usual. Sir F. liurdett signified his intention of bringing for- ward, on an early day, a fliotion respecting these grants. Mr. Hushisson presented the correspondence between the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Bank of England, respecting the Unclaimed Dividends. Mr. Gtnning laid before the House a Paper, purporting to be the Speech of the President of the United States to both Houses of Congress; also a Copy of Mr. Itist's Note to Lord Howick, and his Lordship's Answer. Lord Folkestone moved, that the. Outle Papers be taken into consideration on Monday the 22d instant, and be reprinted. Jf Mr. Creevey observed, that it was impossible to take these papers into cousi- l - ration in their present state, as they were altogether a confused and undigested mass, and advised that they should be referred to a Committee ; when a desultory conversation ensued between Mr. S. Dundas, Sir A. Wellesley, Lord Temple, the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer, Messrs. Lushington, Windham, Wellesley Pole, and Lord H. Hamilton, when the motion was agreed to. Mr. Creevey moved for the production of copies of all letters written by the late Marquis Cornwallis to the Court of Directors of the East India Company, from the period of his going to India in 1805, till the time of his death, together with their enclosures. Alter a short discussion, the motion was agreed to, with the exception of one letter, which was stated to be un- authenticated, it not having been finished or signed by the late Marquis. Tho Bill for regulating the mode of issuing money for paying off Exchequer Bills went through the Committee. The report was ordered to be received to- morrow.— Adj. LONDON, WE^ VNKSDAY, FEBRUARY 10.

From the papers lately found on board the Hope, American ship, bound from Bourdeau* to New York, brought into Falmouth, We learn, that Government has received some very important intelligence respecting the state of the islands of Guadaloupe and Martinique, from which they will be able to direct some operations in that part of the world that may be attended with very advanta- geous effects. The amount of unclaimed Dividends 011 the 5th of Jan. last was 9345 « Hd. The amount of unclaimed Lot- tery Prizes on the same day was 113,220/. TIIEA'TI'E, OovSNT GARDEN.— A new Comedy, entitled, Jtegode dull Care! or, flow will it End? was produced at this Theatre last night, and experienced a favourable reception.— It is one of those irregular bustling dramas, which iiave driven legitimate Comedy from t. he Stage, of whhich Reynolds has usually maAu/ uctured one in a sea- son, and it is understood, that this play has proceeded from his pen. Lewis and Miss Smith performed the principal characters so admirably, that the success of the piece may be attributed to their exertions. DUEL.— A duel was fought last Wednesday, in the neighbourhood of Aberdeen, between Capt. F. M. of the A—— Militia, and Capt. S. of the M Militia. The parties met at six o'clock in the morning, and went ovbr in the ferry- boat to the parish of Nigg, where they fought, and upon the second tire, the latter gentleman was un- fortunately wounded in the groin. He was soon after brought over to his lodgings in town, where he died nejtt morning, at eight o'clock. Capt. M. and his Second have ^ jseonded. itt On Monday night, about ten o'clock, a fire broke out * at Mr. Nichols' Printing- office, Red- lion- passage, Fleet- street, and continued burning until four the next morning. There is no certainty as to the manner in which it origi- nated, more than that it is generally supposed to have begun from a snuff of a candle having been dropped in the ware- room. The whole of that very extensive concern is consumed, and valuable works that have been accumulating for many years have been entirely lost. Messrs. Nichols and Son were insured to the amount of 12,000/. hut that sum is by no means equal to cover their loss.— There is a remarkable circumstance related, which is as follows:— a servant girl was in the kitchen, almost suffocated with the smoke, and unable, through terror and the deprivation of breath, to move; a fire- man discovered it, broke opto the window, and at. the risk of his oivn life saved the girl's. Tile Red Lion public- house, Mr. Edwards' Printing- offhe, the Scottish Hospital, and some other adjacent places, sustained partial injury. _ LAW.—- William Tticker tfas arraigned yosiirtUy in tht Court of King's Bench, upon an indictment for taking a stanlp off a certain writing, and affixing it to another writing for an unlawful jftirpose, and thereby defrauding the Revenue. To which he pleaded not guilty. The Attorney- General moved the Court that he might be tried by a Special Jury, in thy county of Devon, and for an Habeas Corpus to remove him there, which was granted. Mr. Ruslnvorth, at! attorney, was suspended for twelve months, for not answering interrogatories put to him by the Master, respecting the number of actions brought by him on fines incurred by persons offending against the Game Laws.

THURSDAY, Feb. 11."] Lord Sidmouth gave notice, that oil Thursday next lie should move an Address to his Majesty, praying he would give directions, that the Danish fleet be kept ill such a state as not to preclude the possi- bility of restoring it, should circumstances oceur under which it might be expedient to restore it. Lord Grenvt'. le rose to move for papers, which would tend to throw some l. ght on the nature of the relations, as they now exlstejl, between this Country and America, and Oil the terms and tendency of the t.- oaty which, in De- cember, 180'), was concluded between the two nations.— The cultivating and maintaining of a good mule, standing with Ami- l ie was, in his mind, the most material and im- portant consideration that, could possibly engage the atten- tion of the liritish Government, and Parliament, next to the care of conciliating and uniting, ill one bond of union, all descriptions of his Majesty's subjects in these kingdoms. Under the influence of this disposition were the late dis- cussions with America carried on, and nearly brought to a happy termination, when circumstances arose, that may put to hazard'the final issue of that negociatiort. His Noble Friends who conducted that negoeiation had been reproached as having made unwarrantable and dangerous concessions to America— Cencessions which have been causel » * slv and mischievously held out to the public as the bane of the interests of Great Britain ; yet while these re- proaches were vented against tile Administration at li rnie, no sootier had the treaty reached America, than the Go- vernment of the United States was accused of having yielded too mnch to the British Plenipotentiaries. To prove how far either of tliese assertions were well founded, br; Lordship moved fur " Copies of such communications or answers as had been received from the American Pleni- potentiaries since the conclusion of the treaty." After some observations from Lord Auckland, the Lord Chancellor, & c. the question was put, and the motion agreed to. ' lend Grey rose to move for several papers, from which be expected that some information might lie derived, with regard to the spirit and tile views with which Russia and A," tria had undertaken to propose their respective media- tion betwefctt France and this country. It was evident, from the documents already before the House, that be- tween Baron Budberg's second Note, and the one that fol- lowed, some answer must have been made by our Ambas- sador at Petersbuigh, which, however, did not appear. It tvas material that the Himse should be in possession of that answer, as it must have made some reference to the charges brought by the Russian Minister against the Government of this ' country for neglect in assisting our Ally, which charge-, it we'll founded, it was the duty of Ministers to have8brought- forward ill a di tiuct form, and not to get theui thrown in loos* insinuations against the conduct of their predecessors. His Lordihip mentioned several other papers which were necessary to explain the nature of the ' proffered mediation of Austria and Russia, and the founda- tion of the charges by Russia, of our having neglected her interests, and concluded with moving for the several papers lie had alluded to. A long debate took place on tlie motion, in which the whole of our conduct towards Ru- ia was reviewed by the dHf< rent speaker-, and at length the motion was agreed to without a division. - Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. WEDNESDAY, Feb. 10.] Sir Thomas Turton gave notice, that on Monday the 21- 1 of March he would submit certain resolutions to the House, oil the Oarnatic question. > le gave this long notice, that Gentleman might have full time to consider the subject. Sir Francit liurdett rose to move for an Add re s to his Kajerstv, praying that he would he gracioti ly pleased to order that there be laid before :. h< House an account of all captures made at sea, which remained at the disposal of the Crown, from the commencement of the late war in 17.93, to tlie present time, together with an account of the pro- duce of the same, and the manner it had b.- en disposed of. The Chancellor of the E echeqner wished the 1 Ion. Baronet to give a notice rather than to make his motion now. Sir Francis Burdett had no difficulty in consulting the convenience of the Right Hon, Gentleman, by giving the notiee for to- morrow. Mr. Dickewni moved the order of the day for the second reading of the Bill for the repeal of the Act of last session, suspending the penalties and forfeitures affecting persons accepting augmented curacies, if these pel- sons were not resident or had no dispensation. The ca- e of Mr. Scott, which was the sole one on which the Suspension Act of last session was grounded, Was exactly under the circumstances that worked this forfeiture. Mr. Scott, holding the rectory of Brampton Bryan, had'accepted the au,": vented curacy of Tkley ; and his rectory being thereby forfeited, the patron granted it to Mr. Graham, who was inducted with all proper forms. Mr. Scott pleaded that he had sinned from ignorance of tlie irnv ; but it. was a fundamental doctrine i; i British juri- pmb'nee, that- ignorance was no excuse for a breach of the law ; ami the Suspension Act of last Session, passed by surprise, was a gross encroachment on the rights of patrons. Mr. J/ tckhavt defended the Suspension Act of the last session, which wa; brought forward, nqt from reference to any private case, but from regard to the general state of the Clergy, whose titles were very generally threatened by the penalties and forfeitures unguardedly incurred under the Act of 171) 6. Mr. Ltmhington argued at length against the Suspension Act, and contended, ti.-. it it would be an unwarrantable exercise of the power of Parliament to interfere with the right of the Patron ( Lord Oxford) to whom the Rectory lapsed by the default of Mr. Scott, and with the right of Mr. Graham, who legally enjoyed it uador the presentation « f that patron, confirmed by all due forms. Mr. ff'hi'brtad denied ihat the Suspension Act of last session -- kid been passed by surprize, and went over the circumstances ot Mr. Scott's case, which he contended « all(> d fen' relief from Parliament. Several other Meuibers spoke, but the above were the only points on which tlie discussion turned, and the second reading of the bill was carried without a division. Mr. Taylor's motion on the Dardanelles expedition was postponed till Monday. The House went into a Committee of Ways and Means, to consider the recent correspondence between the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer and the Directors of the Bank. The Chancellor of the Exchequer explained the bargain and arrangements on which the Bank had agreed to ad- vance 3,000,0<> iji. to the public, without interest., and moved several resolutions thereon, all of which were agreed to.— Adjourned. THURSDAY, Feb. 11.] A Committee was ballotted to try the merits of the Evesham Election Petition. Sir TVm. Curtis presented a petition from the sufferers by the late fire at Diminica, praying for Parliamentary relief. Referred to a Committee. Mr. HuskUmn obtained leave to bring in a Bill to aboli h the office of Surveyor of Subsidies and Petty Cus- toms in the port of London. Sir Trawia Hard ' t said he would not take up the time of the House by any prefatory remarks to the motion which he was about to submit to them ; for that motion . being the ground of a Parliamentary proceeding, he con- trived that it would he consented to without opposition. He * bould tlv. reforc content himself with simply moving, " That there he laid before the Hon e an account of aii captures made at f a by the naval forces of this country, w'-. i. h were claimed to remain, and which did remain, at t' disposal ot the Crown, since the year 11.92, specifying tii : h capture and its amount, with the particular appro- priation of the proceeds thereof,". The Chancellor of the E. ccheqiier doubted whether the specification of every individual capture could be obtained, and recommended an alteration in the wording of the motion. Sir F. Harriett said lie could see no objection to the proposal; His Object was to obtain information on a point of great importance; The proceeds he'had alluded to anliiunted'to such a considerable sum, that he was certain Parliament > Votild lidt endure that it should remain the private property of the King. Sir C. Pole said, every day afforded fresh proof of the necessity of regulating the Admiralty Court. Sir j. Nichols Itlic King's Advocate) said, this remark was invidious, and totally irrelevant to the motion. Mr. LusiYington agreed with the Learned Gentleman, that this question had no reference to the proceedings in the CAurt of Admiralty, but differed from him in thinking that it had no reference to the application of the fund. It appealed to him that it had the closest reference. As he saw an Hon. Knight ( Sir Home Pophs. ni) in his place, he would state to the House a circumstance, of which he had had intimation some time ago, but a correct knowledge of which he had only that morning obtained. Ill the year 1787, that Hon. Knight obtained his Majesty's leave to quit the service oil half pay. He went to Ostend, pur- chased a ship called II Ktrusco, and, under a foreign flag, went to India. After some time, he exchanged this vessel at a Chinese port for an American ship, which, in eon- juneion with a French supercargo at. Canton, he loaded with tea. He then returned to Europe ; first went to Ireland, then touched at Dungeness, where he landed a part of the cargo, or, in plain words, smuggled tea ashore, and afterwards escaped to Ostend, where, however,' his sl) ip was seized by the boats of the Brilliant frigate, and the business being Drought before the Admiralty Court, the Hon. Knight first avoided the process issued against him, and then absconded altogether. After a great length of time, the ship was condemned, but Captain Robinson, of the Brilliant frigate, never received a single shilling of the proceeds. His Majesty, by the advice of the Learned Gentleman opposite, ( reluctantly given, as he understood), had been induced to order the issuing of a Treasury Warrant, by which the sum of 25,000/. being his share of the cargoe, bad been returned to the Hon. Knight. Was not this a gross misapplication of the fund ? To reward an officer of the Navy f. ir having violated the laws of the land by smuggling. Would the Gentleman opposite pretend to justify it? He saw no objection to the appropriation of the part of the fund to the Royal Dukes; but. oil the other modes of appropriation he was convinced that a serious investigation should take place ; and he therefore trusted the Hon. Baronet near him would persist in his original motion for a specific account of those appropriations. Sir Home Popham, in his vindication, stated that the grant had been made to him on the recommendation of the Government of India, for services he had performed there. Mr. Sheridan made several remarks to shew that this subject must be further enquired into, and for a conside- rable time the debate entirely turned oil the extraordinary disclosure made by the Hon. Member. Sir Francis fiurdett observed, that from the infor- mation given by his Hon. Friend, he deemed it necessary to persevere in his original motion. Mr. Hushisson moved, as an emendment, to substitute the following words for those used by the Hon. Baronet: " That there be laid before the House an account of the net proceeds paid out of the Registry of the Court of Adi miralty to the Receiver General of Droits, cf all property condemned to his Majesty, in right of the Crown, or in right of the . eUiee of Lord High Admiral, since the I st of January^ J793, with balances now remaining." On a division there appeared— For the original motion 5"— For the amendment 82— Majority 25. On the third reading of the Bill for regulating the issue of Exchequer Bills, Mr. Horner observed that the bill created a new place, that of Paymaster of Exchequer Bills; but he more particularly objected to the clause which ex- empted persons who might contract for the circulation of Exchequer Bills from the operation of the Act which dis- qualifies Contractors from sitting in Parliament. After a few observations in reply, the debate was post- poned, and the House adjourned. LONDON, FRIDAY, FKBRUARY 12. Letters of a late date from America announce that the Statira frigate, with Mr. Rose on board, arrived at Virginia on the 30th of December, and that Congress was prorogued. Some Boston Papers to the 5th ult. were received yester- day. In the c the conduct of tlie President, . lefferson, is irtveighed against with the utmost severity. The measure of the embargo is characterised as a proof of his subser- viency to France, as a measure dictated by France.— The effects of it began to be speedily and alarmingly felt.— In Portland several houses failed.— In New York one house ahnie fa'kjtl for about 800,000 dollars.— In Bo- ton, say the Coston'papers, " we already see consternation stalking through our streets, and hundreds of poor but industrious men without employment, or the means of supporting their families." The embargo is spoken of as a measure dictated by Bonaparte, and the submi sion to it as au act disgraceful to the Government of America.— Tile rumoured cession of the Floridas to France, is another subject of great uneasiness to the Americans. Intelligence lias been received from the West Indies, that two French frigates with troops, had arrived at Martinique. The last letters from Gibraltar continue to speak of preparations being made in Spain for a siege of that fortress. Magazines of grain are collecting at Algesiras. A more unpleasant circumstance than this is, that the inhabitants are said to be at present on bad terms with the garrison. Precautions are taking against them ; and, it is added, memorials have been presented to Government for more effectually removing all causes of dissatisfaction. Yesterday the Queen held a Drawing- room, which was very numerously attended. Among the presenta- tions were— Earl Grey, oil having succeeded to the Peerage; Mrs. Merrick Iloare, on her marriage) Sir Henry Worsley Holmes, the Archbishop of York, & c. Sir John Stewart, the hero of Maida, is appointed to the chief command in Sicily. The existence of a French faction in Palermo is said to have rendered it necessary to entrust this command to an Officer of distinguished energy and talent. A letter dated from Santa Cruz, on the 29th of December, says—" An account has just reached this place by the Camilla, of the arrival of two French frigates at Martinique with troops."— The Rochefort squadron is generally stipp « ed to be destined for the same quarter. A letter has been received from the Amethyst fri- gate, at sea, which states, that after parting with the Emerald frigate, she fell in with the t- wo French frigates which lately sailed from St. Maloes full of troops.— She kept sight of them for two days ; on the 3d day she left them, and the day after fell in with the Shannon frigate. The enemy are said to have altered thl- lr course. Friday se'unigbt a cause of very considerable importance to the the tenantry of Ireland was decided in the Court of Exchequer, Dublin, upon a Bill filed by James White, F. sq. of Ballinahown, in the county of Wexford, to oblige the Earl of Mount- Norries to renew a life in a base of lives renewable for ever ; whim, after a hearing ot' two days, the Court was pleased to decree in favour of Mr. White, who had a property of nearly 1000L per annum depending on the question. The cause of the. Hon. Colonel Wingfield Stratford v. George Powell, Esq. and others, was finally heard in the Court of Chancery, Dublin, yesterday se'nn'ght, when the Lord Chancellor pronounced his decree, that the plaintiff, the Hon. Colonel Stratford, is absolutely entitled to the whole uf the persona! estate of which til? late Earl of Aid- borough died possessed ; and that the bond for 50,000.'. to Lord tlenniker was a voluntary bond, and directed a per- petual injunction to is- ue, to restrain the defendant from proceeding on it j and decreed, that AUihorough House and furniture was the right of the plaintiff, and that an in- junction should issue i, i one month to put the plaintiff into the possession of the Fame. Colonel Wingfield is brother to the Earl of Powerseourt, and nephew to the. Earl of Ahlbarough, whose widow, the sister of Lord Hcnniker, Mr. Powell married, and to whom she bequeathed the . contested property. Last night a new Opera was represented at Drnry- Lane Theatre, intitled Knit, or Lore in the Deserts. The fable is derived from a romaihee written by Mr. Disraeli. It has some very splendid scenery, and the music, by Redve- j is adapted to the taste of the day. Hraham sung his songs most admirably ; and though the piece is characterized by insipidity, it was announced for a second representation amidst the general approbation of a numerous audience; Sunday morning a duel was fought on Dauburv Common. between Lieutenants O e and M—— m, both of tlie 43d Foot, which was attended with fatal consequences to the former, who received a ball through the body on the first fire, and expired on the spot. I his melancholy circum- stance originated in a dispute at the mess, 011 the preceding evening. Lieut. M. and the Seconds have absconded. On Wednesday the MARQUIS of TIIOMOND was unfortu- nately killed in Grosvenor- square. He was riding 011 horse- back, and as he turned the corner of the square, from the east to the south side, he rode up rather close to the rail- ing, where the pavement is not so even as in the middle of the carriage- way. The liorse stumbled, and his Lordship fell upon his h : ad. Being in his 8u* i year, he wasvery infirm, and incapable of making any exertion towards les- senin j the force of his fall: he bled profusely as he lay upon the ground. His groom rode up to his assistance ; lie laid hold of his hand, and grasping it lirmlv, cried out " William, William 1" These were thu only words he ut- tered after his fall. Being taken into Lord Sydney's house, it was found he had breathed his last. His Lordship was descended from Murrough O'Bryan, King of Ulster : he was married to Miss Palmer, niece of Sir Joshua Reynolds ; hut dying without issue, the Marquisate is extinct: his brother, the Hon. Edward O'Bryan, succeeds to the Earl- dom of Inchiquin. A few days since a Miss Carpmeal, a fine young woman, only 18 years old, whilst walking ill Hyde Park with her sister and some other friends, suddenly ran from them, and threw herself into the Serpentine River ; every exer- tion was used to save her, and she struggled much to avail herself thereof, but in vain • when taken out, she was quite dead.— An unfortunate attachment had deprived her of her senses, and occasioned the melancholy act. On Monday an inquest was held at Great Stamnore, on the body of Miss Elizabeth Clutterbuek, one of the daugh- ters of the late Thomas Clutterbuck, Esq. of Watford, who was found drowned on the preceding Friday, at Stan- more, in the garden pond of her brother, Peter Clutter- buck, Esq. into which she is supposed to have fallen, in endeavouring to reach her bonnet, which had been blown off bv a sudden gust of wind into the water. The Jury, after a few minutes consultatiou, brought ill a verdict of Accidental Death. Simmons, the murderer of the two Ladies at Hoddesden, Hertfordshire, a few months since, died, it is said, last week, in Hertford Gaol, raving mad. He had, it seems, refused to take any food for several days before. BIRTHS.] Lately, at Witchington Parsonage, in Nor- folk, the Hon.

So severe was the weather last nsght, the snow so deep, the wind so violent, that by ten o'clock this morning not more than six inland Mails out of 20 had arrived at the General Post- Office.— In some places, it is reported, the coaches could not proceed, arid the bags were dispatched on horseback— in others ad- ditional horses were forced to be procured. During the whole night on Thursday, and yesterday morning, the wind was so high, that much damage must have been done on the coast The letters re- ceived this morning from Deal, Ramsgate, & c. mention that three or four vessels are on shore, but happily no lives have been lost. Ministers have settled a new plan for the issuing of Exchequer Bills, by which the commission will be saved, as well as an easy accommodation given to the public.

StR, IN looking into Barrow's History of England, vol. 1, page 37, Antiquarius will see, that in the year 465, upon the retreat of Vortiger n, Ambrosius Aurelius was placed on the British throne. Ambrosius, being now without a rival in'command, applied himself to Settle the affairs of his kingdom. In order to which, lie summoned a general assembly of his princes and nobles to meet him at York, where an order vas made ibr restoring the churches, and settling the peace of the kingdom. From York he marched to Winchester . and Salisbury, where he took the like pre- cautions, and was solemnly crowned at Stonehenge, the o tie bra led monument on Salisbury Plain.
