AND WINCHESTER AND GENERAL ADVERTISER OF WILTS, HANTS, DORSET, AND SOMERSET. [ NUMBER 3708. - VOLUME LXXIIL] MONDAY, MARCH 14, 1808. Mondays and Tuesday's Posts. 1 V has dc FOREIGN NEWS. LUBRCK, Feb. 15. e this moment received intelligence Riga, by an estafette, that Russia declared war against Sweden. BANKS OF THE ELBE, Feb. 22; The refusal of England to co- operate in restoring peace to Europe, is on the eve of producing measures the effects of which will soon be felt on the Continent. What operations will be undertaken by the armies of the Emperor of the French and those of his allies, are not yet known ; but already on all sides movements are observed, which indicate the inten- tion of taking the field, on the return of fine leather; a formidable army of French and Spaniards is assembling in Spain, which will be increased to 150,000 men ; prepara- tions are pursued with toe utmost activity on the. frontiers of Turkey; the Russian troops are advancing in great force • on those of Sweden, and we are in momentary expectation 6f official intelligence of hostilities having commenced. , A LONDON, MONDAY, MARCH 7. Hamburgh and Altona papers to the 24th ult. con- taining a few extracts from Paris papers to the 16th ult. reached Town this forenoon. The German paper; assert that Russia has actually de- clared war against Sweden; and intimate that " the refusal of England to co- operate in restoring peae^ to Europe" will occasion further changes in tfee States of the Continent. An article from Naples, dated Jan. 23, says that a Russian frigate has been taken off that coast by two English ships of war. It appeal's by an account from Naples, taken from the French Journals, that a Gunpowder Plot has been carried into effect at Naples. In the night between the 29th and 30th of January, a wing of the palace of M. Salicetti, Minister of War" and Police to King Joseph, tumbled down from the explosion of a quantity of gunpowder. The room where the Minister was received little damage, but he was wounded whilst hastening to relieve his daughter, the Du- chess of Lavella, who was found with her husband amidst the ruins. The apothecary of the late Queen, who had a shop near the Palace, is suspected of having collected - a large quantity of gunpowder in his cellars, ( which are se- parated from those of Salicetti merely by a partition wall) the explosion of which occasioned the mischief. He is in custody. The fire at Dantzic, which broke out in the night between the 1st and 2d of February, was followed by another conflagration, which broke out in the afternoon of the 2d, and continued burning for 24 hours. The city presents a scene of desolation; more than 100 buildings are reduced to allies— the steeple of the Church of the Holy Ghost has fallen down, many persons have been maimed, and others have lost their lives on this disastrous occasion. French papers to the 25 th ult. and Dutch papers to the 1st inst. were received this afternoon. They contain the following articles, in addition to those in the Hamburgh and Altona papers. The Russians are active in their preparations for attack- ing Sweden. They are now stated to have entered Finland. General Buxhovden, who has the chief command in that direction, is stated to have organized not less than 180 regiments, m;> « t of which are fresh levies, and the. whole Br' said to have proceeded to Finland and Moldavia. O tl • left 1 of the Danube. the Russian preparations for renewing tlr war are equally vigorous ; and the move- ments of the French in various directions seem to be connected with thes preparations; which are undoubtedly intended to carry into execution the long- projected dis- memberment of the Ottoman Empire.—- An article from Vienna even intimates that the Porte is aware of its danger, and has i: i consequence solicited an alliance with England, offering to allow our forces to occupy Egypt and the Morea. Letters from Holland state, that the prices of colonial produce have risen enormopsly. American vesels are allowed to enter the Dutch ports; but such as are disco- vered to have touched at a British harbour, uniformly fall under the rigour of Bonaparte's decree. All the ships and cargoes in Holland have been condemned, and the greatest distress prevails among the merchants. A Gotleiiburgh Paper of the 12th of February, received this morning, says, " The fleet bound to England sailed from hence on the [ 4th inst. but put back again the next evening, by contrary winds, and still remains. An En dish 74 is at Kladesholmen, near Marstrand, for the purpose of protecting the convoys. The winter is very severe, the ice extends above five English miles from the town." Ministers, it is said, have refused to place the British Squadron which is to act in the Baltic under the command of the King of Sweden. The army will be on the footing of auxiliaries.' It is preparing with great expedition. It is to comprise twenty thousand men, and to be followed bv a considerable Reserve. Tae King of Sweden has sti- pulated to co- operate with an effective force of equal number in the field, independent of hi ; Guards, Garrisons, & c. The Provisions, Hospitals, & c. for our Troops are to lv: furnished from England.— Lord Cathcart, Sirs A. Welles- ley and .1. Moore, anil some other Officers, are mentioned fcJr commands in this Expedition. Ortlot* were sent on Saturday to Shee. rness and YarmouVi, to prepare tie . several ships at those places desti. ied for the Baltic, for immediate sailing.— The chief comm- vad is to be given to Sir James Saumarez, and directions have been sent to him to repair to town, to re- ceive his instructions. It is said he is to hoist his flag on board the Barfleu'r, of 98 guns, which ia preparing at Portsmouth. . Government have received a confirmation of the account of three or four French frigates, full of troops, having reached Martinique, where they are blockaded by Admiral Cochrane. J The Danish settlement of Tranquebar, on the Coromandel coast, is thought to be at this time occupied by a British garrison. Goa, on the Malabar coast, with the Portuguese territory annexed, are, it is said, to be placed under the Government of Bombay, on the same conditions on which Madeira has been occupied by our troops. GENERAL WIHTELOCKE'S TRIAL, Twenty- ninth Day.— This morning the Judge- Advocate informed the Court that be had closed the evidence for the prosecution. General Whitelocke was then asked when he sh ukl be ready to enter upon his defence ? and having named Monday next, the Pre'ident immediately adjourned the Court to ten o'clock that dav. LAW.— In the Court of Exchequer, on Saturday, m the cause the King v. Agle— The Solicitor General stated this to be an action for the recovery of money received by the Defendant on behalf of the Excise Revenue, but not accounted for. It appeared that Mr. Agle, as Assistant to the late Collector of Excise at Preston, in Lancashire, had become possessed of very large stuns, and that there existed a deficicucy in his payments of npwards of forty thousand pounds. There were il', 1 witnesess for the Crown, and five for the Defendant, and the books and ve ichers produced filled five large cart'. The trial lasted two- days, when the Jury found a verdict for the Crown for 44,000?. OPERA DISPUTE.— On Saturday the Lord Chancellor gave his promised judgment in this cause, which he prefaced by observing, tliat as he had gone over the proceedings, and had minutely weighed the arguments of Counsel, bis judgement would be decisive. There were two main points on which he had been required to interfere— the appoint- ment of a Manager, and the nomination of a Treasurer. The deed of 1803, between Taylor and Gould, was so con- tradictory, that it was impossible for him to r/ iove one step in the appointment of a Manager. The same deed stood almost equally in the way of his novating a person to receive the rents and profits; but if the parties could point ' out how a person so nominated was to act with safety to himself, he would willingly hear them. At present he could have nothing to t'. q with the busings. MARK- LANE, Monday, March 7. The. supply of Wheat this morning was smaller in quantity than wc have seen for several week's past, and the quality of some of the Essex runs being much approved, such samples at an early hour fetched rather more money, as per particulars ' beneath ; in other respects the mealing trade was extremely dull, and must be reckoned Is. per quarter cheaper than last week. Barley had accumulated for several market- days, almost without buyers, under an idea that the distillery would be stopped ( which c;; n scarcely take effect, however, this season), until the stands were loaded jn an uncommon degree, but a decline of 2s. per quarter being complied with towards noon to- day, a consider- able clearance was made upon these terms.

MONDAY, March 7.] Lord Sidmouth called the at- tention of the Lords to a subject of great importance. Previous to any declaration of hostilities between this eiuntry and Denmark, the Danish merchants in London hid applied to oar Government, to know if their ships in the British ports might remain there, in security. The a tswer to this application he did not exactly know ; but it appeared, from the answer given by the Chamber of Com- merce at Copenhagen to a similar application there, that there was no expectation of hostilities," as if something Ji < • an assurance of safety had been given to the merchants h ire ; in consequence of which, they completed their car- go Previous, however, to the sailing of the expedition to Copenhagen, an order was issued, under which all those ves els were detained, and others brought in, which had since been condemnedas Droits of Admiralty. The produce of these vessels and cargoes, he had also heard, was nearly 2,000,000/. and the crews of the vessels, it was further said, tad been treated as prisoners of war. If these statements were true, they reflected disgrace on the'country ; for he could not help thinking the expedition to Copenhagen the fcau. se of the war with Denmark ; and the vessels and sea- men detained previous to any hostile conduct on the part of ( he Government of the country to which they belonged, ought to be differently treated from those detained in con- sequent of such previous hostile conduct. He wished for official information how far these rumours were founded. Lord Hawkesbury replied, that no assurance of safety bad been given to the Danish merchants at the period alluded to ; that the same conduct bad been adopted with pect to the detained property as had been pursued with the property of other merchants in a similar situation; arid that the ssamen were considered as prisoners of war ; but a cartel had been proposed hy his Majesty's Govern- ment, which had not yet liicn acceded to by the Danes. l/ ird Su- folk observed, that the immense amount of the Danish captures made it necessary to enquire, on the tart of the public, in what way the produce was to be Applied. fjord Hawkesbury assured the Noble Earl, that the amount had been greatly exaggerated ; and that, whatever it was, the ma- mier of its disposal would be known to the public. Lord Sidmouth disclaimed any intention to exagerate; he spoke from rumour only ; but whatever might be the • mount, the principle on which the seizute was made was equally reprehensible. Lord Lauderdale, after commenting with great severity < » n the impolicy of the Orders in Council, which might be rendered nugatory hy the refusal of Sweden to act with as,— tor instance, if Sweden refused to lay similar duties, then American vessels might go to Gqttenburgh, anil avoid the expence c$ touching at an English liort, moved for " Copies or Extracts ef all communications which had taken place on the subject." Ijord Hawkcsbury said, it was impossible to comply with the object of the motion ; for though satisfactory assurances had been givdn of the friendly conduct of our ally, there was yet no arrangement in a shape to lay before Parliament. The motion was negatived without a division.— Adj. TUESDAY, March 8.] Isord Grenvilh observed, that a Noble Secretaryvof State had asserted in that H . use, that the Treaty signed with America by the late Admini- stration had been received in America previous to the separation of Congress, and that the President had re- fused to ratify it. He believed both these assertions were ineorrect, and the. usual candour of the Noble Secretary Would doubtless incline liim to correct the error, into which he mil it have been led by misinformation. Lord Hcwjlcsbury replied, that an official copy of the Treaty, t.' get ve. r with a dispatch from Lord Howick, was received by ihe Hritish Minister at Washington on the 2d of February, and Congress did not separate till the 3d. This copy was immediately laid before the, American Se cfctary of State, who communicated it to the President; but when the latter received a Message from the Senate, expressing a wish to know whether it was h « intention to make any communication to them previous to their sepa- ration, be answered in the negative. He thus neglected the opportunity * f keeping Congress together till the Treaty should arrive; and he had since publicly declared that his disapprobation of certain parts of the Treaty was the cause of hi - so acting. Lords Holland and Auckland contended that there was it material difference between this statement and that for- merly made by the Noble Secretary. The Treaty re- mained in America, perhaps waiting the acceptance of the Government, instead of having been rejected and returned. Lord ' Hawkesbury argued, that « s the Pre- ident had, oft reading the copy of the Treaty, declared bis disappro- bation of it, our situation was in substance the same as he had before stated it. Lord Enhine then rose, and called their Lordships at- tention to the order of the day for taking into considera- tion the question of the legality of the Orders in Council. These Orders, in his view of them, involved the important consideration whether the violence and injustice introduced by the French Revolution into the relations of national communities, were to terminate with the present genera- tion, and be limited within the immediate sphere of the arms of the Ruler of France, or whether they were to be perpetuated to all time, and extended to every nation on the surface of the globe, llis Lard- hip then read a long String of resolutions, commenting on each, the purport of which was to condemn the Orders in Council, as a vio- lation of the Constitution, by the assumption of a dis- pensing Power in the Crown ; as an infraction of our mu- nicipal code, by authorising the detention and capture of foreign vessels contrary to Magna Charta, and various Statutes of Richard II. and El ward III.; and as a violation of public law, by depriving neutrals of the rights of inno- cent commerce, under the false pretence of their acquis esccnee ill the French decree of the 21st of Nov. 1806. Lord Iftdon contended, that the Orders in Council were strictly within the acknowledged law, of nations, and being so, had been legitimately adopted on the authority of his Majesty's war prerogative. The statutes quoted by Lord Jsrskine were Solely enacted, as appeared from their pre- ambles. to prevent thfc f rown from establishing a fnoivo- jvly of foreign commodities, by an arbitrary jegolation of the ports where tbey should be landed, and the prices at which they should be disposed of. If tl^ e Order of the 11th of November was unjustifiable by the law of nations, he would ever contend, that the principle of the blockade of 1806, extending from the Elbe to Brest, and the Order in CounciFof January 1837> were equally at variance wdth that code. His Lordship concluded with moving the pre- vious question. Lord Grenville suppoited the original motion, and Lord Hawkesbury the previous question, which, after a short reply by Lord Erskine, was carried, on a division, by a majority of 127 to 61. Proxies included. Adjourned at two o'clock. HOUSE OF COMMONS. MONDAY, March 7.] Mr. Simeon reported from the Grampound Committee, that tins Election for that borough was void. Mr. IVilberforce reported from the Newcastle- upon- Tyne Committee, that Mr. Wilbraham Bootle and Mr. James M'Donald, the sitting Members, were duly elected, but that the petitions against their return were not frivo- lous nor vexatious. Mr. Parnell presented a petition from the freeholders of Queen's County, in Ireland, praying the House to take into consideration the present state of the Tithes in that country. The petition was read, and laid on the table for future consideration. Mr. Horner moved that the account of fees paid at the public officii for commercial licences, which bad been presented pursuant to orders of the House, should be re- ferred for investigation to the Finanee Committee. His reasons for this motion were, that the account was un- satisfactory:— It stated 121. 9s. ( id. as the highest amount of fees paid for any of these licences, whereas, if he was rightly informed, the least sum paid was 15/. some bad paid 20/. and when licences had been obtained for several ships, though by the same person, as much as 65/. or 667. had been extorted. Besides, the system of granting licences ought to be watched most jealously 5 it was an ac- knowledged novelty in the system of commercial ( econo- my, and of dangerous tendency in a constitutional view, as it went to place the whole trade of the country under the ccntroul of the Executive Government. Mr. Rose stated, that the Committee of the Privy Council had received information that in some instances more had been paid to the Clerks for these licences than they were entitled to demand, anil that a strict enquiry had in consequence been instituted, which was now in train ; therefore, though he had no objection to the Hon. Gentleman's motion, he thought it might be preferable to wait till it was seen whether the Privy Council remedied the evil ; and if it was not satisfactorily remedied, the House might then re& r the business to the Finance Committee. Mr. Horner expressed bis readiness to adopt the stig gestion of Mr. Ro- e, and withdrew bis motion. Sir /'. Burdett moved for an account of the total sum paid to his Majesty by his Royal Warrants, by the lb gistrar of the Court of Admiralty, being Droits of the Crown, since the 1st of January, 1792, to the latest period the same could be made up, distinguishing the balance remaining due in the custody of the Registrar of the Admiralty. When this account should be produced, the Hon. Barunct gave notice that he would appoint an early day for a motion on the subject of these Droits. The aeeount was ordered. On the motion of Mr. Chancellor Perceval, the ord- r of the day was read, for taking into further consideration the Orders in Council Bill. On this subject a desultory conversation arose between Mr. Eden, Mr, Perceval, Mr. Ponsonby, Lord II. Petty Mr. Baring, and Sir J. Newport, when the Bill was ordered to be engrossed with its amendments, and read a third time on Thursday next. The Mutiny Bill was read a second time, and committed for the morrow.— Adjourned. Right Hon Gentleman's system might be remedied by. doing a » ay the principle of exclusion, which was its worst feature,— by leaving it to the discretion of the recruit to enlist for life, or for any long period. His Lordship con- cluded with moving, in substance, that an amendment be made to that clause of the bill which restricted enlistment to seven years, and that it should be left to the option of the recruit to engage for life. Mr. rfindham observed, that the plan nf the Noble Lord must stand on a weak foundation, when he had thought it necessary to prop it by a mis- statement. By the present plan, instead of the enlisting being for seven • ears only, as the Noble Lord had asserted, it was for 7, 14, and ill years, with appropriate encouragement for the meritorious soldier at the expiration of each period. This was the system which the Noble Lord wished to do away; and to induce the House to coincide in his wish, he had nsinuatod that more men were enlisted under his own ma- nagement than under any other, in the same period of time. The merits of the plan of limi ted service would appear from the returns : In July 1805, the first quarter of its Operation, 11,000 men eidisted under it; in the second quarter, 13,000; in the third, 21,000; and in the fourth, 24,000. In this career of success, the plan was interrupted by that violent measure, the Additional Force Act, which, though the Noble Lord prided himself on it, so far checked recruiting, that after all the ineonve- niencies the country suffered from it, the number of men raised in the year scarcely equalled that of the four quarters l « i had enumerated, all of which were raised by " ordinary recruiting " When the Noble Lord boasted of his numbers, he always omitted to state the means by which he bad raised bis men. He reminded him of a Clpwil in a pantomine, who always imitates the hero of the piece, and then boasts of having done the same thing. Thus at the Amphitheatre, when young Astlcy, putting his hand on his saddle, vaults into bis seat, " like feathered Mercury," with exquisite grace and agility, Mr. Merryman afterwards climbs up the mane or tail of his horse, and grinning to the audience, cries out, " There 1 I have done it too!" £ 0 when proofs were brought forward of the success of the system of raising men with the encourage- ments afforded by limiting the duration of service— by holding out the pleasing bope that once in the ordinary duration of life they would have again the exercise of their own free will in respect to the mode in which they would pass it,— tl » e Noble Lord cries out, " I have raised as many men I" always, like Mr. Merryinan, forgetting to state the means bywhieh he had done it; always keeping out of sight his Additional Farce Act, Additional bounties, and the other clumsy apparatus by which he bad indeed raised the men, but had at the same time cut up and destroyed the " ordinary recruiting," which the limited service was meant to encourage and promote. It bad been said, why not give the men an option ? Ha would answer, because it was. not proper so to do. The system was intended to make the service regular, and to place it on a footing that should make it eligible for men to enter into the army ; to shew that they might ehter for an apprenticeship of seven years, and at the expiration of that period deliberate whether they should take the advantages which further services held out to them. If the option contended for were allowed, the crimps and recruiting serjeants would delude sucW recruits as they could obtain to enter for life, the old system would gradually obtain, and our honest peasantry, sneing that the word uf promise, though " kept to the car," was " broken to the bope," would shun the service as the greatest evil that could befall them, or would be driven to it only by another scourge, the ballot. General Tarleton spoke in favour of the clausc. The Secretary at War agreed with many of the princi- ples of the Right Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Windham), but thought the clause necessary in the present crisis, A division took place, when the numbers were, for the clause 169, — against it 100. The Bill then went through the Conunitte ; and the other tinders of the day being dis- posed of, the House adjourned. TUESDAY, March 8.] A Committee was ballotted to try the merits of the Malton Election petition. Sir Charles Pole moved for leave to bring in a Bill for the better regulation of the official appointments in Green- wich Hospital and the Royal Naval Asylum. By the ori- | giual charter of Greenwich Hospital, all the Officers of the institution should have served in, or been connected with the Nayv, which provision had been grossly violated. One object of his bill was to restore the operation of the original charter in this respect; - another object was to prevent in future such misapplication of the funds of the hospital as had been detected by the Commissioners of Naval Enquire. — In the Royal Naval Asylum, an institution now supported at the national expence, and dc oted exclusively to tile children of seamen, especially of those who had fallen in the service, it was highly desirable, in the disposal of the official situations, to give preference to those candidates who had served in the Navy, or lived in situations con- nected with the naval service. Mr. Rose admitted that the Commissioners of Naval Enquiry had discovered misapplications of the money be- longing to Greenwich Hospital; but the recurrence of this evil might be prevented without a new Act of Parliament, and it did tuit appear necessary to provide for the other objects which the Hon. Baronet had in view. He must be aware that there were situations 011 the establishment which could not be well filled bv a man who had received his early education in the Navy ; for instance, the office of Organist, those of Architect and Surveyor, and also those of Receiver of the Rents, and Auditor of the Accounts. Mr. IVhitbread said, if the original principles of the chatter of Greenwich Hospital had been grossly violated, it surely could not be argued that it was unnecessary to revert to those principles. It might be very allowable to except the offices of Architect ami Surveyor ; but he saw no rea'on to despair of finding in the Navy men of musical - taste, who might qualify themselves for organist, and find a comfortable provision in the salary, after having been wounded in the service of their country. He might appeal to the example of the Right Hon. Gentleman him- self, and to that of a Right Hon. Bart. ( Sir Evan Nepea ® ) to prove that there are men to be found, who have received tie* early rudiments of their education in the Navy, and who have felt no incompetence on their parts, nor been thought by the heads of Government inadequate, to fill much higher situations, to manage funds of gre iter magnitude, or to audit accounts infinitely mare complicated than those of Greenwich Hospital. But however meanly Gentlemen might think of the talents of Naval Officers for official duties, surely no man would deny the competence of a naval man to hold a sinecure, as well as any placeman ill the nation. Now he found, from the evidence before the Commissioners of Naval Enquiry, a person enjoying 11 sinecure salary of 280/. a year in Green- wich Hospital, who was not only no naval man, but no Englishman : this was a Mr. Henry Clues, a Swiss, called the principal barbar to the hospital, who did not even know how to shave, but employed five or six deputies, and de- scribed himself, before the Naval Commissioners, as s/ tper- intendant of the shavers. The Chancellor of the Exchequer rensidered the motion to be at least premature, if not wholly unnecessary. When the regulations far managing the Naval Avium should be laid before Parliament, any alterations could be moved, or any new regulations pioposed for the more important insti- tution with which it is connected. . Sir F. B. irdeti said, it was very unusual to oppose the introduction of a bill, particularly when the object of it wa- the correction cf gross and acknowledged abuses. Cer- tainly no argument had been . advanced again- t it, and therefore he could not bring himself to suppose that the House would at present reject the bill. The Hon. Baronet had his thanks for persevering in bringing this measure before Parliament, in spite of the obstacles thrown in his way; and he would have what was mtnih more valuable, the grateful thanks of bis countrymen at large. The House then divided, when the numbers were,— Ayes 52, Noes 78. Majority against bringing In the bill, 56, The Secretary at ffar having moved that the House go into a Committee on the Mutiny Bill, Mr. Wharton took the Chair of the Committee. lyord Castle rettgh rose, and stated the nature of the alterations he meant to propose iu tf> e bill: It had been shewn that the system of the late Seeretaiy for the War Department could not be strictly adhered to, without prejudice to the interests of the country; for the vast increase of force lately made to the army was acquired by a departure from that system. Our Colonies required nearly 100,000 men to protect them, and we bad at present upwards of 90,000 on what was called foreign service. It would be impossible to keep up this large force on the Right Hon. Gentleman's system. The - conveyance of a soldier to India eon the country nearly SO/. A man enlisted for a limited period could not with prudence be sent there, since the same sum must be expended in bringing him back, perhaps after he had been in flic country three or four years and gat Masoned to ttie climate. Tjuis and other evils at the LONDON, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9. The Royal Family were prevented from coming to town yesterday by indisposition of the Princess Amelia. Her Highness's disorder is supposed to be the measles. Dutch papers of t'ne date of March 2, were receii ed last night. They contain accounts from the coast of Italy of a sufficiently late date to have furnished some informa- tion of the Rochefurt squadron, hud it steered, after passing the Straits of Gibraltar, on the 26th of January, a direct course towards Sicily. Letters from Naples, of the 12th of February, make no mention of any French ships having appeared in those seas. The Neapolitan Moniteur contains an account of the English having anticipated the designs of the enemy against Sicily, and actually effected a landing on the coast of Ca- labria, with a small body of men, which, however, we are told, were defeated ; as also that a brig of 22 guns, w hich had unfortunately run a- ground, was taken, after a severe conflict of two days!— The port and fortress of Reggio, which we did not know was in possession of the Calabrians, was, it is said, re- take. 1 by the enemy on the 2d of February. Jerome Bonaparte has issued a decree against British manufacture!, m ire violent than those of his Imperial and Royal Brothers : he has not only ordered that all such articles found in his kingdom of Westphalia shall IK- seized and confiscated, but has further directed that they shall be burnt. This absurd decree has been carried into execution at Cassel in three several instances, when the shivering subjects of this feeling father of his people witnessed with sorrow the destruction of numerous articles that had been destined to shelter them froiii the inclemency of the weather. By the American ship Unice, letters were yesterday received from Lisbon to the 4th of February, which contain information of much importance. It appears by them, that on the 23d of December last Bonaparte signed at Milan a Decree, or Manifesto, by which he finally determined the fate of Portugal. This decree was not promulgated at Lisbon until the Ist day of February. It declares the throne of Portugal abdicated by the family of Braganza, which is never more to reign; and that henceforward the kingdom of Portugal is to be united fo and considered as part of the dominion of France. It recommend; the cul- tivation of friendship between the troops of France and Portugal; to cement which he promises, that those of Por- tugal shall hereafter be considered as sharers, and entitled to participate in the glory obtained by the troops of Franco in the memorable battles of Marengo, Jena, Austerlitz, & e. It dissolves the Regency formed by the Prince Regent, the members of which are placed in various stations in the public departments, and are, in future, to act under the controul of the French Government. Accounts from Gibraltar, just received, state that on the 23d of January twenty- six transports arrived there, with 3000 men, part of General Spencer's force, which it was supposed were intended for the attack of Ceuta ; that the Spaniards had shewn apprehensions of this attack, and had in consequence detached a large force from Algesiras to Ceuta; that on the 2;> th of January all the gun- boats at Gibraltar were ordered to be in readiness for the supposed attack, all expectations of which had been given up on the 10th of February, in consequence of General Spencer not having arrived. The Phoebe frigate entered the Bay of Gibraltar on the 5th of February, and brought intelligence that the Roche- fort squadron passed the Gut in the night of the 26th of January, supposed for Sicily. The Phccbe therefore received orders immediately to sail fur that island, with the troops in the Bay. But at night One of the most violent gale! ever witnessed eame 011, before they could - sail. The storm continued during the 6th and 7th with dreadful violence. Many vessels were totally wrecked, and three of tbr transports driven out of the Gut. The transports returned into the Bay on the 9th, with the Windsor Castle and some other men of war, aiid the Nymphe frigate from Lisbon. Among the vessels lost, is an American valued at 15,000/. Another worth 30,000/. has been much damaged, and pro- tests have been entered by the merchants concerned, who maintain that she could only have been detained by the most perverse interpretation of the Orders in Council, and that they have a right to recover damages from the Go- vernor. This question will probably be tried in England. On the 10th of February, at one o'clock, Sir R. Strachan, with seven sail of the line and one frigate, passed the Gut ill pursuit of the enemy; but they had got so far a- head as to leave no hopes of his coming up with them, or prevent- ing the junction of the Roehet'ort, Carthagena, and Toulon Sqets, Lord Collingwood having left Toulon, and gone towards the Adriatic, in quest of some Russian ships. It was hoped, however, that Sir Riehard would be in time to prcvVnt ijny descent upon Sicily, till reinforcement* arrived there. Yesterday, in consequence of a special message, the Governor and Deputy Governor of the Bank, with a number of Bankers and others, among whom was one out of the following houses',— Messrs. Drummonds, Coutts, Dent, Child, Hoare, Gosling, Smith, Robarts, Ken- sington, Goldsmi Antrobus and Co. had an interview with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in Downing- street, when he informed the Gentlemen, that he had called them together to submit to thein a proposition respecting the Finance of the year. It was the intention qf Govern- ment to propose to Parliament to fund 4,000,000/. of the outstanding Exchequer Bills, and that this should be done by public subscription, without, regard to the dates of the bills; and it was his desire that the Gentlemen present should consult together, and say what would be a fair rate at which they should fee written in. It was necessary for him to state, that no loan would be wanted before the month of May, and that then no more than eight millions would be wanted for England. With respect to the Ser- vice of Ireland, it was bis hope and expectation, that the sum necessary would be raised within that part of the United Kingdom. The Bank of Ireland wished to renew their Charter, for which, ef course, they would contribute a sum, and he thought the whole or the greater part of the necessary sum— at any rate he could assure them, that one million would be the extent of the sum required to be raised in England for Ireland. He concluded by stating, that he wished to fund the 4,000,000/. of Exchequer Bills the 4 and 5 per cent. Stock, and they would deliberate 011 the amount of such Stock to be taken for 100/. of Exchequer Bills. The Gentlemen retired, and on their return, a question was asked, whether any alteration was to be made with respect to tin- Sinking Fund ? It was distinctly answered, that no change whatever was to be made in it. The Gentlemen then gave in a paper offering two proposals as terms, viz. 1.— For every lOOi. Exchequer Bills, to receive of 5 per Cents, at .071. 10s is 631. ~ s. Gd. Ml. of 4 per Cents, at 80i. lis. ex d. is 40/. 7s. ( id. 10;!/. 15s. Or, 2.— For every vooi. Exchequer, to receive 80/. of 4 per Cents, at 80i. 15s. is ( 141. 12s. 1 hd. 391. of 5 per Cents, at S7/. 10s. is 38/. — s. Gd. 102/. 12s. 7{ d. Which would be a Bonus of from 2 § to2J per cent. It is understood that ten days is to be allowed for the Holders of Exchequer Bills to write them in, specifying their dates and numbers, with a proviso that if the sum written in should exceed four millions, each person will be rateably reduced. STATE LOTIT. RY.— Four Capitals in the State Lottery came up yesterday, being the first day of drawing the present Lo'ttery, viz. 18,455, and 12,909^ prizes of 10,000 pounds; 4099, a prize of 1000/. and 19,459 of 500/. !• This is rather an unusual start. VOLUNTEERS.— It is said to be in the contemplation of Government to call out the whole of the Volunteers, in four divisions, during four months of the ensuing Summer, viz. one fourth of the Volunteers of each county to be encamped ( within their respective counties) during the Whole of the month of May, one fourth during the month of June, one fourth during the month of July, and the remaining fourth in August.— Half- pay Officers of the line to act as Adju- tants and assistant Field Officers, and Government, in par- ticular cases, to provide, not only camp equipage, but oloathing, pay, and provisions. By a spirited execution of this plan, it is thought the Volunteer Force w ill be brought to a state of perfection in military discipline, beyond what its most sanguine admirers have hitherto expected. BREAD.— The Lord Mayor yesterday ordered that the price of Bread should be continued the same as last week. C'ORN- EXCIIANGF., March 9. To- day's supply of Wheat is rather considerable, and the trade again is very heavy in sales at rather low prices. Barley and Malt this week are 2s. and 3s. per quarter cheaper. White Peas vary l> ut little Grey, and Tick Beans are cheaper. The supplies of Oats are large, and this trade, is dull, at rather declining price?. Very fine Flour is at 6: 1 s. per sack, but general sides are lower. SIMMONS, THE MuisriF. SER.— This malefactor was exe- cuted on Monday, pursuant to his sentence, at half past eleven o'clock in the forenoon, between Hertford and Ware. He behaved with that air of indifference which marked his conduct during his trial. He shook hands with three persons who accompanied him to a scaffold, and whispered a few words to the gaoler before he was turned off. ANDOVER, HANTS. rjX) be SOLD by AUCTION, by IffiKsr J.

AN I) GENERAL ADVERTISER bi' HLT&, HANTS, DORSET, AND SOMERSET. tJm [ Friday's and Saturday's Posts. FOREIGN NEWS. VIENNA, Feb. 13. THIS morning the deputies of the Company of Wholesale Dealers were called together, and it was announced to them, that all communi- cation between England and Austria is broken off; thev were also to abstain from all speculations with English merchants, since there was no longer any aecurity, aud war was expected every moment to break Out. This intelligence was communicated by Colonel llissengen to the deputies.— Mp. Adair will remain a few days longer at Gratz, to wait for the last courier from London. According to reports from the Turkish Empire, military preparations are making with the greatest activity. The Sublime Porte is about to send into the field two armies, each of 150,000 men. The A iatic Provinces are to furnish 180,000 of them. From Trieste we learn, that English ships of war begin to cruize again in the Adriatic; and as the Austrian flag is no longer respected, no merchantman ventures into the open sea. Many merchants who fear a visit from the Eng- lish in that harbour, send their goods, with great cost, into the country. From Turkey very unfavourable accounts are received ufthe annihilation of all trade, as the English keep the whole coast, from the Dardanelles to Egypt, in a state of blockade. HOUSE OF LORDS. WEDNESDAY, March 9.] Bland's Divorce Bill was read a first time. The Sugar Bounty and Drawback Bills were received from tke Commons, and read a first time. The Scotch Distillery Bill was read a second time.— Adj. THURSDAY, March 10.] The annual account of the Imports and Imports was presented, and also a return to an Order of the House for an account of Foreign Vessels arrived in the week ending the 27th of February. Istrd Stanhope gave notice of his intention to propose, in the fourse of the next Session, some measure for ensuring to the Public a correct report of the decisions in Courts of Justice. His Lordship then pointed out a few inaccuracies in a report of a cause, in which he is a party. Lord Hawhesbury delivered a Message from his Majesty, relative to the Subsirlary Treaty with Sweden, which was ordered to be taken into consideration on Monday. Lord Auckland observed, that a paper just presented contained the pleasing account that our Exports of Hrisish commodities for the last year amounted to about 40 millions. He was anxious to have a return, distinguishing the Exports of the three last months of that year, and similar returns for the same periods of three preceding years. He should alst wish to have a return for the port of London to as late a date as it could be made out. lie con- cluded with moving for these accounts, which, after some observations from Lord Westmoreland, Lord Stanhope, & e. were ordered. The Order of the day for going into a Committee on the Reversionary Grant Bill being read, Lord Arden. opposed the Bill, on the grouud of its tending to trench upon the prerogative, and of its having eonic frmn the other House under circumstances which, interfered with the freedom of debate in their Lordship's House, It was a weak submission to the Lower House in the year 1641, which paved the way to the total overthrow of the Monarchy, lie cuncludcd with moving that the Order of the day be discharged. Lid Boringdon thought that the Bill, originating, as it did, from the Committee of Finance, should be suffered to go to a Committee, though he did not cxpeet the advan- tages from it which some Noble Lords had anticipated. fjord Redesdale considered this hill as the commence- ment of a system ot innovation, highly dangerous to the country. He illustrated his meaning by a reference to the times of Charles the I. and the commencement of the French revolution. The influence of the Crown, in his epi « i; m, required increase rather than diminution. He was decidedly in favour of the motion for discharging the order of the day. Jytrd Holland replied at length to the last speaker, and urfffd their Lordships to adopt the bill. Ijords Carlisle, Moira, and Harrowby were for going into a Committee on the bill, though they did not support its full principle. J Air d Grey ( Howicli) took a comprehensive view of the circumstances which gave rise to the Bill, and conjured their Lordships to reflect well upon the real causes of those Calamities which had overspread the Continent, before tliev incurred a suspicion of being averse to eveiy species of jpeform. i-. jrd Hawlesbiiry briefly restated the eohsiderations Vl » ieh he urged on a preceding evening for adopting the treasure v^ ithsome modification. A division then, taking place, the numbers, including • provies, were for Lord Arden's Motion 84; against it 84. This parity of numbers bad the effect, according to their Lordships' rule of proceeding in such'cases, of negativing Lord Arden's motion, when their Lord- hips went into a Committee. Lord Hawkesbury proposed to limit the duration of flic Bill to the 1- t of June 1810. This Amendment was opposed by Lords Spencer, Holland,' Grey, and Lauderdale ; a ad supported by Lords llawkesbury and Mnlgrave, and the Lbrd Chancellor. It was carried on a division, by 5y to 21.— AdjourntM. HOUSE OF COMMONS. WEDNESDAY, March 9.] Some business of form having been transacted, the House went into a Committee of Snpplv, in which various sums were voted,— to dis- charge public annuities, tor the relief of the American Loyalists and the French Clergy, for the expences of the Public Office in Bow- street, for the expences of the Alien Office, and for the auditing of public accounts. The House next went into a Committee of Ways and Means, in which the Chancellor of the Exchequer ex- plained his plan for funding 4,000,000/. Exchequer Bills, and his views in regard to a Loan ( see preceding page), and moved resolutions thereon, which passed unanimously. The order of the day was then read for taking into con- sideration the affairs of the late Nabob of Oude ; and the Speaker having read the first resolution, stating the terms oi the treaty between the India Company and the Nabob Seadut Ali, Lord Folkestone observed, that, the friends of the ' Mar- tinis Welleslev complained of public prejudice being ex- cited agaijist him, whilst there was much more catise to complain that they faxtf endeavoured, through the means Of a public newspaper, to excite prejudice against his motion. His Lordship then entered into a minute detail of all the occurrences in India from Feb. 1798, when the Nabob Saadnt Ali ascended the Musnud, till the arrival of Lord Wellesley in Bengal, and during the firsj, five years of his Lordship's government. He found the Nabob one of our most staunch friends in the Oriental World ; hut the Marquis had no sooner tiken the reins of Government, than he commenced his career of hostility to the unhappy l'rince. Actuated by the most ungovernable and unjustifi- able ambition and lust of power, he had formed schemes for the acquisition of territory in direct opposition tbe po- licy of the India Company. He pursued these schemes, in total disregard of the resolutions of Parliament, by means the most offensive and insulting to the Nabob ; and finally b<- wrested from the unfortunate Prince a great portion of bis dominions, and deprived him of all effective rule and authority over the remainder. Mr. IVhitshead Kerne entered into a general history of India, from the time of Aureugzebe to tbe invasion by Nadir Shah. From the situation of the country, he was induced to think favourably of the Marquis Wcllcsley. Sir John Anstrnlher observed, that in all the charges brought agolnst the Marquis Wellesley, no one had ever breathed a whisper affecting his honour or the purity of his motives. The sole charge against his Noble Friend was a love of power— a mis- directed ambition. But it was tor his country he had been ambitious, and not for his per- lonal aggrandizement. Further it was the general opinion in India,- that he had done nothing towards the Nabob but that was perfectly justifiable. He had acted in conformity t » the opinion of the Board of Controul, by whom he was employed, and not by the Directors; and from Major ( lust- ley's evidence bi- lore the House, it appeared that the > sl) Ob of Oude, sine* his cession of territory, was both limpier and richer than before. If the House should agree with him on these points, it was his intention to move a resolution, purporting that tbe Marquis Wellesley, in his conduct re- peeling the province of Oude, had been actu- ated by an ardent ahd well- directed jjpal for the interests of his country, and that Ids services in that instance had been highly meritorious. After some further conversation, in which Mr. Wallace, Mr. Lushington, Mr. Wm. Smith, and Mr. Sharp took a part, it was agreed to defer the further consideration of tbe Oude charge till Tuesday next; and at half past one House adjourned. THURSDAY, March 10.] A Committee Was appointed by ballot to investigate the merits of the petition com- plaining of an undue return for the bnrough of Malmes- bu ry. Mr. Secretary Ginning presented a Message from his Majesty, stating that the King of Sweden, having resisted every threat that had been employed to indue'e him to join the host of confederates against Great Britain, and having thereby exposed bis dominions to imminent danger, his Majesty felt it his duty to afford that Monarch the most prompt and efficacious assistance, and had therefore entered into a convention for that purpose, a copy of which he had directed to he laid before the House, relying on his faithful Commons that they would enable him to make good his engagements with an ally of such approved firmness and fidelity.— The Message was referred to the Committee of Supply. The Call of the House was postponed till Tuesday. The American Commissioners Bill and the Marine Mutiny Bill were read a third time, and passed. Mr. Alderman Combe presented s Petition from the Merchant? and Manufacturers of London, interested in the trade to America, stating the great distress and in- convenience in which the Orders of Council would involve the petitioners, and praying to be heard against the same. It was stated by Sir Win. Curtis, that this petition was not agreed to by the majority of the Merchants, & c. who assembled to consider the same; which was admitted by- Mr. Alderman Combe, who informed his worthy col- league, that he presented it as the petition of those persons whose names appeared to it, and who constituted a very numerous and respectable body of Merchants and Manu- facturers interested in the trade to America. After a long diseussiou, the prtition was laid on the table. General Gascoigne presenled a similar petition fiom the Merchants of Liverpool, which occasioned another long discussion of the policy of the Orders in Council ; and on a division it was ordered that the petitioners should be heard by their Counsel on Thursday. The Chancellor of the Exchequer moved the third read- ing of the bill or carrying into effect the Orders in Council. Lord Folkestone moved an amendment, that the Bill be read a third time on Monday se'nnight; and after some further proceeding thereon, his Lordship moved that the debate be adjourned till Monday se'nnight. ' A division took place, when the numbers for the adjournment of the debate were 5.9, against it 122. Sir IV. Seott maintained the propriety of the Orders in Council, aud was replied to by Dr. Lawrence. Mr. Stephens and Sir C. Price argued that the Orders in Council were wise and salutary ; Mr. Ponsonby that they were absurd, and incapable of being caraied into execution. * At three o'clock in the morning, Lord Henry Petty moved an adjournment; which was rejected on a division by a majority of 74. After a short interval, Mr. Sheridan moved an adjourn- ment, which was rejected by a majority of 73. On a motion that the Orders in Council be road, Mr. ITenry Martin called for a division ;— for reading the Orders 65, against it 140 ; majority 73. It Was then agreed that the debate should be deferred ; and at half past five in the morning the House adjourned. LONDON, FRIDAY, MARCH It. Dutch papers now arrive daily. The latest received are those of the Gth instant, bringing accounts from Paris down to the 2( 1, which were altogether silent re- specting the Rochefort squadron. These papers furnish an account, rereived by the way of Barcelona, of the Prince Regent of Portugal having arrived at the Brazils early in January. The appearance of the English in the Adriatic, is a source of perpetual alarm along both the coasts of that sea. An Imperial Decree has been passed, calculated to seduce foreigners from their allegiance to their native country, by giving thein certain privileges after a year's residence in France. In the Hamburgh Correspondenten of the 2( jth of February, received this morning, is a letter from Paris of the 16th, which states, that on the 12th of the same month the Danish East India Slop Spitzburg arrived atPaimboeul, after having, on the 29tli of January, fallen in with a French squadron, of five ships of the line and some frigates, off the Cape de Verde Islands.—" We doubt not, says the Paris letter, that this is the squadron which sailed from Rochefort under tbe command of Rear- Admiral Alhnand, and that it had previously been reported to have arrived at Toulon." Here we have the rumour of the Roehefort squadron having - arrivad at Toulon, circumstantially invalidated bv an account closely corresponding with that received in this country from Sir J. Duckworth. It should appear then, either that there are two French squadrons at sea, both pursued by the English, or that Sir Richard Straehan has proceeded up the Mediterranean upon a wrong scent 1 On Wednesday Mr. Hase read, at the Stock Ex- change, a letter from the Chancellor of the Exchequer, respecting the funding of the 4.000,000/. of Exchequer Bills. In this letter he announced some variation from tbe proposals made the day before, and it was proposed that nooks should be opened on Wednesday morning at the Exchequer Office, where the holders might write- in then- bills, including all those dated up to the end of the year 1807, specifying their numbers and dates; and that, as soon as the sum of four millions should be compTeat, tbe books should be shut, and the subscribers should respec- tively have the whole sum inscribed. As to terms, he proposed an option. If they chose to take all 5 per cents, he proposed to give for 100/. Exchequer Bill, 105/. in the 5 per cents.; or, if they preferred to take part 4 and part 5., he proposed to offer for every 100/. Exchequer, 63/. 5s. of 5 per cents, and 50/. of 4 per rents, which in both cases, wouib. be a bonus of from I f to 2 per cent. This is considerably under the offer made to Mr. Perceval by the Gentlemen who attended him on Tuesday. Yesterday a numerous meeting of merchants, manufac- turers, and others, concerned in the commerce of America, was held, pursuant to notice, at the City of London Ta- vern, Bi- hopsgate strcet; Alexander Baring, Esq, M. P. vvas unanimously called to the chair, when a petition was read, setting forth the peculi ar hardships which the Ame- rican commerce laboured under, iri consequence of the late Orders in Council.— Mr. Sansum proposed an amend- ment, stating, that such a petition was at this moment improper, and that it was brought forward merely for party purposed. Mr. Gordon, Mr. Lushington, Mr. Al- derman Shaw, and others, supported the amendment. The Chairman, and K. Sharpe, Esq. M. P. contended, that the petition was rfet intended for party purposes, but to convince his Majesty's Ministers of the evils in which these orders would involve the commerce of this country. The Chairman observed, that hints had been conveyed to some of the American Committee, if they concurred in a petition against the Orders in Council, that their names would be reported at the Treasury.—" Name, Name," resounded from different quarters of the room, and " TVu, No," from others; but the Chairman declined it, though he pledged himself its to the fact.— The amendment was carried by a large majority; and the minority were left by themselves to sign the potition, which Has presented to the House last night by Mr. Alderman Combe. SWEDEN*.— Copies of the Subsidiary Treaty with Sweden were last night laid before both Houses of Parliament. The amount of the pecuniary aid stipulated is 100,000/ monthly, making up the sum of 1,200,000/. to be paid within one year from the date of the ratification of the Treaty. The Contracting. Parties bind themselves not to make peace, < 1r enter into negotiations with tbe common enemy, hut with mutual consent, There is a separate article, which leaves an ogcriing for a further arrangement, in the event of Sweden being attacked by any of her immediate neighbours. Among the troops to be employed in Sweden are the whole of the German Legion— Artillery, Cavalry, and Infantry; also two regiments of British Caralrj- - and 6000 of the Foot Guauk A Captain of tbe Guards, on his way to town from Rochester, 011 Thursday last, after displaying many eccentricities, suddenly disappeared from his servant Oil the road, and has not since been heard of. THEATRICALS.— Cdoke resumed his siatiort last Aight at Covent- gardeii Theatre.— He made his hue in Sir Archy Mac- sarcasm, drew the fullest House there has been in the whole season, was received by the audience with shouts of welcome, and played the character most admirably and soberly throughout. LAW.— A bill in Chancery having been filed bv Lord Vis- count Matron against his father, Earl Stanhope, stating that certain estates, which, oil tlie marriage of the Noble Earl, ill 1774, with Lady Hester Pitt, were settled on the is- ue of that marriage, had been sold by the said Karl', aud the produce not applied as directed by the deed of set- tlement, and praying for an account thereof; and ai 0 complaining that certain trees, ornamental to the family mansion in Kent, had been cut down by tbe Earl, and praying that he might be stayed from such dilapidations,— the hearing thereof commenced on Monday, in the Rolis- C mrt, before the Master of the Rolls. The arguments of Counsel ( including a Speech from the Noble Defendani himself, in vindication of his honour in the transaction) continued for two days.— On Wednesday evening the Master of the Rolls delivered an interlocutory judgment, implying, that Earl Stanhope vvas tenant for life, and Lord Malion tenant in tail of the e tates in question; that the Earl having sold an estate for 21,000/. and placed the money 011 mort- gage at 5 per cent, his Honor referred it to the Master to enquire if this vvas most advantageous, and agreeable to tbe settlement ; that the Earl, in treating for the saje of an estate in Derbyshire for 76,0001, without the advice and concurrence of the trustees, misunderstood the meaning of tbe settlement; it was true, bis Lordship had told how he meant to apply this money, but the Court would not permit the sale until it was ascertained that it would be beneficial to the estate at large. In regard to the cutting down of the trees pear the mansion, iu explanation of which transaction the Earl had stated that a violent tempest had thrown down several trees, and occasioned large gaps, which rendered is necessary to aut down others, his Honor referred this point entirely to tbe Consideration of the Master.— His Honor deferred tbe appointment of new Trustees ( which was prayed for by the Plsintiif) and various other points, till be received the report of the Master. At Chelmsford Assizes, yesterdav, R. P. Murcbison, J. P. Hopkins, and G. W. Dundas, Lieutenants in the fir- t battalion of the 43d Regiment of Foot, and all apparently very young men, were tried for the wilful murder of John Ogitvie, late a Lieutenant in the same regiment, iu a duel at Danbury, Essex, on the 7th of February la- t. From the evidence given, the Chief Baron told the Jury, that the deceased had, in the eye of- the law, been murdered ; and if they could satisfactorily collect, that the prisoners were the persons who committed the fact, then they were all guilty of murder.— The Jury, after some hesitation, acquitted all the prisoners.

The Marine Mutiny Bill, and several other Bills, were brought up from tiie Commons, and read a first time. Lord Moira moved the second reading of the Debtor and Creditor Bill; which was opposed by Lord Ellenbo- rough, and on a division, there appeared— Contents 5, Non- Contents 9.— The Bill was consequently thrown out. The Minority consisted of the Dnkes of Gloucester and Somerset, the Lords Moira, Holland, and Erskine.—" Ad- journed to Monday. HOUSE OF COMMONS. FRIDAY, March 11.] On the motion of Mr. Dundas, a Select Committee of 21 Members was appointed to en- quire into the present state of the affairs of the East India Company, and to report their observations thereon to the House. The Chancellor of the Exchequer having moved that the debate on the Orders of Council Bill be now resumed, Lord Folkestone, convinced of the propriety of hearing the petitioners against the Bill, moved an amendment, that instead of " now," the words " Monday se'nnight" be inserted. The amendment was negatived without a division; and after a long debate, the third reading of the bill was car- ried by a majority of 100. At six o'clock on Saturday morning, the House ad- journed to Monday. LONDON, SATURDAY EFENING, MARCH 13.

The petition for peace, presented yesterday to the House of Commons, from Manchester, was signed by 35,00j inhabitants, principally manufacturers. The important cause respecting the valuable right to the extensive Oyster Fishery of the Burnhain or Crouch river, exclusively claimed by Sir H. P. St. John Mildmay, Hart, was tried on Wednesday at Chelmsford, before Mr. Justice Heath and a special jury, when it appeared tbat the Earl and Countess of Sussex, ancestors of the Miidmays, had obtained two verdicts, in the reigns of Charles I. and II. establishing this very right, and that from thence to the present time it had been exclusively exercised by the tenantry of the Mildmay family, from a point called Clay Clods, above Tambridge Ferry, down to the Raysans Beacon, which lies on the main sea. Serjeant Shepheard said, be could have proved the title of the family to this fishery from a grant of Richard I. on his rftturn from the holy wars; but he felt so strong in the right of prescrip- tion, that he deemed it unnecessary. ' Flu: learned Judge said, he never knew an ancient right more clearly esta- blished ; and the Jury, without hesitation, returned a verdict for the plaintiff, confirming that right. The extensive flour- mills at Sturry, near Canterbury, latidy erected by Mr. S. Kingsford, were burnt down 011 Tuesday night. They were insured ; but the loss to the proprietor, in flour and corn, is estimated at 2000/. The fire was occasioned by the friction of a part of the ma- chinery.

A melancholy accident occurred alongside his Majesty's ship Mars, at Spithead ; during the payment of1 the ship, the boats, which usually attend alongside ships to furnish the men with necessaries, were desired to keep off, which, however, was not complied with, when the Centinel on duty discharged his musket, and unfortunately shot a Jew, of the name of Abrahams, who almost i& stantly expired. He was a fine young man, and that very day completed his SI- st ' year. SALISBURY. MONDAY, MARCH 14, 1808. The inhabitants of Farley Hospital, in this county, received their new eloa thing on the 2ath ult. the day oil which the Earl of Ilchester attained the 21, st year of his age, and walked in procession to church, to commemorate that happy tera in the life of their friend and benefactor.

The Commission for holding the Assizes for the county of Wilts was opened here on Saturday evening, and the business commences this day, before the Hon. Baron Thomson and Mr. Serj. Marshall ( the latter of whom was appointed to go the Circuit before the death of Mr. Justice Rooke). Very little business is expected at Nisi Prius, only twelve Venires having been entered. In magnitude of crime, tile Calendar is unusually heavy ; but as the bare statement of the offences, from the nature of the charges, might at this period be prejudical to the fair- trial of the prisoners, we forbear to say further till the verdict of their country shall have pronounced the guilt or innocence of the accused. The following prisoners are for trial at Dorchester As- sizes, which commence on Wednesday next:— Ann Biliett, for the murder of her bastard child ; John Tizard, for a rape; Joan Cliburn, jun. for uttering forged Bank, of England notes ; Ludewig Rode and Heinrick Busse ( Hano- verian soldiers), for a burglary atWeymouth ; James Hine, for horse- stealing ; Francis Hill and Charlotte Barnes, for house- breaking ; John Anthony, for felony in a shop at Dorchester; Thomas Astbury, for stealing nine cotton shawls and other goods at Woodbury- Hill Fair ; John Whesler, for privately stealing money, & c. from the person of William Stocker; and Elizabeth Cobden, for wilfully and knowingly offering in payment and uttering counter- feit coin.
