AND GENERAL ADVERTISER OF WILTS, HANTS, DORSET, AND SOMERSET. [ NUMBER 3714. - VOLUME LXXIIL] MONDAY, MAY 2, 1808. PRICE SIXPENCE. / Stamp Duty.... 2J een circulatedteSpectin^ the Rochefort squadron, there is slow no doubt that the fir- t accounts which reached u-, of its Laving entered the Mediterranean, were correct. The • article frota Brussels, brought by the Gotten burgh Mails, is confiiined hy letters from on " board tlie Apollo frigate, stating that the united French squadron was seen on the Hth of February,, the day of its sailing, standing towards the Hit- res Islands, in thick weather, and in a gale of wind. Aec ^ Qnts Iwve also been received that it reached the Adriatic about the latter end of that month. On the 9th < f rtarch IV » d Collingwood, with his own squadron and those of Admiral Thornlmroogh and Sir Richard St radian, Was off Marelimo, a small island fo the west of Sicily, and we understand that his Lordship had ascertained the rendezvous of the enemy's fleet. American Papers to the 10th ult. were received this miming. It is obvious from their'contents, that the tembargo lias already produced very great distress in America, and of courre a proportionable shaft of dis- content. Notwithstanding the S" vere penalties attached to the violation of the embargo decree, a number of vessels had s » ile! l in the night from the American ports, with flour and - necessaries, for the West India Islands''; where the vessels were sold and the crews dispersed, to avoid the operations ' of th-- act; and, ift consequence of thetfe supplies, flour had very Mtl* advanced in Jamaica and our other ' islands. The AuicfSCan Senator, Mr. Pickering, has published a long address to tbe Goveffc. rr of the State of Massachusetts, . oh. thc rtiinoos conscquenefes of a war with Great Bri. taiA-, in which lie details the origin and progress of the diffe- rence between the two countries, and positively concludes that England has given America no cause of war. f l is fully understood that the ftiissicra of Mr. Rose to A merica wfts not so successful as might have been hoped for, txit ' that he found the Americans at large much more • favourably disposed towards this country than they had tieen. The President has not anullcd his unfriendly I'ro- fchflaatlofi', nor Iras the Embargo been withdrawn; bfit Mr, Rose uas assured that the ' ctMtmuahce of the latter did not - ii- ise from any " hostile feeling towards this country. Mr. Hose was fully authorized to make every proper reparation in the business of the Chesapeake; but as the Preskledt tefus- d to revefe the Proclamation, and a" there are other topic; which required discussion, the Negotiation was sus- pended, upin as- uranees^ fafavourahledispc'dtion to treat. Mr. Rose parted in a very friendly manner v. ith the Prtsiderit on the 28th ult. and as Messrs. Clinton and Mon<- > ee we're likely to be eferteA Co the Presidency and Vice- Presidency on tbe approaehir'ig election, there is every reason to hope that th : present amicable disposition of the p*- ople will be rtrengtheued by the measures of the subse- quent Government. Intelligence was yesterday received, ( confirming the rumour of a Revolution in - pain. The King of Spain is ( dethroned; and, to uV. ke his degradation the more com- plete, he has been compelled to declare that his abdication Was quite volnntitry, and that his ill state ot" health required a change of climate, Bonaparte, however, drd not think it prudent at once to expel the Bourbons from the Spanish' Throne, and the Prince of Asturias is the nominal uc- Ccssor of his father, under the title of Ferdinand the 7th. As scon as the new King was seated on the Throne, he issued a Proclamation, iu which he assured his subjects that the Arrtty of his All)-, the Emperor of France, had entered his Dominion- upon principles the most friendly to his interest, and merely to guard the Ports of Spain against the designs of the English. The property of the Cxi nee of Peace was confiscated, and he has been thrown into prison-. So irritated were the chief Spanish Nobility against him, that the Revolution has the appearance of having been headed by them; and by whatsoever secret direction it was effected, the French took no active part therein. E> ST INITSA L iersK.— A General Court w as held this day, summoned on Especial Affairs-, which was very numerously attended. After the usual forms, th" Chairman stated to the Court, that a deficit of li, 400,000( e- iisting in the pre- nt nt accounts of the Company, it was deemed expedient to prepare a Petition to Parliament for relief, and to submit the same for the consideration and approbation of the Pro- prietary. The Committee of the House of Commons, Ire had the pleasure to say, were disposed to recommend it to the Honse to make an immediate payment on account of the debt due from Government to the Company of L'.' ObjOOUi He then stated the causes of the present de- ficit, ai. ftiug which a prominent one was the advances made by desire of Government, on various occasions, particu- larly for tbe expedition to Egypt, under the command of Sir David Bairii, and the heavy interest ( IS per cent.) ac- cumulating on loans made for that surviee in India. He next took a view of the tangible property of tbe Company, which he Shewed would be, on tic- arrival of certain good* from India, I9,420,6-> W. The Petition having been read, it was moved that it be presented to the House of Com- mons hy Mr. Grant. After a few observations from differ- ent gentlemen, the question was put, and carried unani- mously.

Peter Ralph .-, of his Majesty's ship Caroline, aidressed to Rear- Admiral Sir T. Troubridge, Bart, dated off Batavia, Oct. 1,9, 1808, ha; been transmitted by Capt, Rainier to this Office. It relates, that on the 18th of Oct. 1805, the Caroline captured a small brig from Bantam, and in consequence of the information gained thereby, Capt. Rainier sailed for Omust. Between Middleby and Amsterdam Island;, he discovered two Dutch men of war trigs at anchor, one of which he raptured, the other e; caped. Tile captured brig was the Z-.' ei op, of 1- 1 guns, Capt. Groot. Whilst Capt. Rainier v. a- taking possession of the prize, the Phecnix frigate slipped out of Omust, and run for Batavia roads. The Maria, another Dutch frigate, was lying ill tlia roads, and likewise the William sloop of war, " with the brig- that had escaped " from Oiiiust.. The Maria being evidently the largest ship in the road, the Caroline ran for her, with springs on both cables, and getting within half- pistol shot, a, smart actton took place, and lasted about half an hour, when the enemy hauled down her colours: on boarding, she proved to be the Dutch republican frigate Maiia Reygersbergen, of 36' guns and 270 men, launched in 1800, anil a fast- sailing ship. The Caroline had besides to encounter the William, of 20 guns, the Patriot, of 18, andZeeplung, of 14 guns, with several gun- boats; and there were 30 gun- boats l. ving on shore, which did not attempt to come out. The Caroline Has 57 short of her Complement, by men away in. prizes, sick at hospitals, & c. It was out of Capt. Rainier's power to capture the Phoenix, William, Patriot, or Zeeplong, as the Caroline and Maria were after tile action in four fathoms water, surrounded by many dangerous shoals.— The Dutch ships, with seven sail of their merchantmen, were all afterwards run on shore.— Captain Raiiner put t li Dutch Officers, and as many of the men as she eould carry, oil board the brig first captured, and sent them to Batavia, on their parole.— The Caroline had three sea- men killed, together with four Dutch prisoners in the hold. Lieut. Williams of the Royal Marines,' four seamen, and a marine were wounded dangerously, and are all since dead ; and there were twelve seamen slightly wounded. Vice- Admiral Lord Collingwood, Commander in Chief of his Majesty's ship* and vessels ill the Mediterranean, in a letter dated on board his Majesty's ship Ocean, at Syra- cuse, Feb. 23, says, " The Rojioniee and Grasshopper were slut- oiled in December last olf Carthagena, to watch the Spanish squadron, and when Capt. Searle was detached on the look- out he fell in with three vessels of war ; and not- withstanding the great superiority of their combined force, lie attacked and took the largest of them, the two others making their escape."— The captured vessel i; the St. Joseph Spanish brig of war, of 12 guns and t> 9 men. In this affair we had two men severely wounded. Extract of a Letter from Rear- Admiral Pun is to rice- Ad- miral l. o/ d CoUvigicood, dated on toartl his Majesty's ship Atlas, ojf Cadiz, April l>. HAVING directed the Captains of the Mercury and Grasshopper to put themselves under the orders of Capt. Maxwell of the Aleeste, off the Light- house, until Sir John Gore in the Revenge, with the Excellent, should re- turn to that station, it appears by Capt. Maxwell's letter to me of the- 4th inst. that a large convoy of the enemy was discovered pushing for Cadiz from the northward, Under the protection of about 20 gun- boats and a numerous train of flying artillery on the beach. At three P. M. the convoy being off Rota, Capt. Maxwell with hi; Hi tie squa- dron attacked thorn, and after having destroyed two of their gun- boats, driven the others away, anil silenced the batteries at Rota, they captured seven of the convoy, and drove many of them ashore in the surf. Capt. Maxwell gives Capt. Searle the credit of silencing tile batteries at Rota, and speaks of him in terms of high praise and admi- ration for his gallant behaviour and skilful management in the m'dst of shoal;, driving the enemy from their guns with his grape- shot, and keeping a division of the gun- boats ill clieek at the same time, which had come out from Cadiz to assist the others engaged by the Aleeste and Mer- cury. Capt. Maxwell speaks of his Officers and ulen, as well as those belonging to the Mercury and Grasshopper, ill exalted terms for their bravery and eool behaviour, and particularizes the names of many Officers.

If parliament chose to refuse the assist- ance required, it ought not to contribute to the distress, by witb hoiding the property of the Compafty. Mr. Tierney thought the Company hardly dealt by. Two noble Lords ( Melville and Cast'lereagh) had made delusive promises re- pecting an annual surplus of the Companvs fund's, and now the Company, who had never promised, were to bear the odium of non- performance. A slight enquiry would shew that the public had had the use of 1,200,000/. advanced by the Company, for twelve years; and li > w, when a temporary assistance was asked, on account of deficiencies occasioned by circumstances which the Company could not controulj they were unjustly blamed for that deficiency. The fault, if any existed, rested with those who had occasioned the war, and directed the profu- e expenditure, which had so much injured the affairs of the Company. Sir John Anstruther said, it was evident the'embarrass- ments of the Company were occasioned by the wars which had originated in Europe, and the commercial restrictions, which locked up a great deal of their property. There was no reason to infer that the money would not be re- paid, as similar loans had been. After some further conversation, the motion was agreed to.—. Adjourned, LONDON, WE D NES D AY, APRII. 27. HOUSE OF COMMONS. TUESDAY, April 26.] The Irish Clergy Residence Bill was read a second time, and committed tin' Thursday. Mr. Gran' presented a petition from the East India Company, setting forth the exigencies of the present state of their trade, aud their incompetency, in consequence thereof, to fulfil tbe demands made upon thejn. They were at present, indebted to Government for duties to a large amount, and the stun of 1,200,000/. was wanting for the security of their territorial possessions; therefore praying the House to enable them to make good the same, by a loan of 2,400,0001 The petition stated the advances made on account of Government by the Company, but did not claim the money in re- payuient. On the contrary, it gave an estimate of tangible property belonging to the Company, amounting to 19,420,623/. to prove the ability of I lie Company to re- pay the loan. Mr. Grant moved that the petition might be referred to the Committee sitting on East- India affairs. Mr. M. A. litylor objected to referring a petition of this nature to a Coimniitee, as that had the appearance of sanctioning a claim on the country, which had not vet been made out; and till it had he would not consent to the monrv b ing advanced, unless satisfactory security was given for its re- payment. Mr. Creevcy was ot opinion the Company never would V' able to re- pay the money; if the petition should be a" ceded to, the money would not be a loan, but a gift. Sir John Newport and Mr. Ponsonlry were both against gTil ing the prayer of the petition. The Chancellor of the Exchequer observed, that at ] r>: - nt there was no call to determine whether it was fit to i. Iv with the prayer of the petition. It was only pro- j ; d to put the petition into a state of enquiry ; and for • '.' ii purpose nothing cotild be so proper as to refer it to Vie ' ommittco actually employed in investigating tiie i! ;• t to which it related. It had been assumed that the n oii v. if advanced, would be a gift; but this was exciting a ' . dice against the Company without any real . ". ". o '. The petition expressly asked it as a loan. At a" \ eius, facts were stated which required examination. 7 lie Cofcpauy offered to make otic that they were, to a All the accounts received by Government from Sweden are of the most favourable complexion. It is even reported in the City this morning, on the authority of a letter received by a most respectable house, that the Russians have been obliged to evacuate Finland with precipitation, for want of provisions, leaving behind them all their military stores, See. & c. Norway, it is believed, must fall into the hands of Sweden. The current opinion at Gottenburgh, according to the last letters, was, that , an expedition from this country is immediately to attempt the re- capture of Copenhagen and the island of Zealand. A Bourdeaux paper, of the lst inst. is in town, which contains the proclamation relative to the abdication of the Thro lie of Spain, by the unfortunate Charles, and the accession of his soil, under the title of Ferdinand VII. According to the French papers, tbe Prince of Peace was found ill a garret in his own house, where lie had been secreted thirty- six hours.— The new King was not at Ma- drid when the disturbances took place. On his ascending the throne, he ' determined on the removal of the Swiss Guards, • who had theretofore been stationed about tbe person of the King ; they were to be replaced by others more firmly attached to the present measures. The un- happy Charles, on abdicating tbe throne, assigned as a reason " his ill state of health, and the necessity of a change of climate." Recent accounts have been received from the Medi- terranean, which state, that the Carthagena squadron re- mained at Minorca, having sustained much damage, and that they » were watched there by Lord Cochrane. They a'so report, that the Toulon squadron had sailed with troops, and that Lord Collingwood and Sir 11. Straclian were oil' Sicily, ignorant of the destination of the enelny. The force at Minorca is estimated at ten sail of the line and one three- decker, nearly ready for sea. If this statement be correct, it probably includes the Carthagena and Roche- fort squadrons. The Fiench have besides four sail of the line at Corfu. On Sunday the second Battalion of the Light In- fantry of the'German Legion, 1000 strong, embarked on board the transports at Ilams£$ ute, and immediately went into the Downs. On Monday the first Battalion of Light Infantry cinbjrked.— Several cavalry trans- ports came into Ramsgate. Yesterday, at one o'clock, four companies of the first Battalion of the German Riflemen, embarked, four companies of the second were embarked in the afternoon, and the embarkation was to continue as expeditiously as possible, Government being very anxious for the sailing of the Expedition. Clothing for 15,000 men, for the use of the Mi- litia, is ordered for Canada, and upwards of 20,000 stand of arm;, with artillery and . ammunition. ' I'he aspect of affairs in America is said to have produced this order. The Stocks rose this morning about one per cent in consequence of a report that Gen. Armstrong, the Ame- rican Minister, had quitted Paris, on the failure of his, negociation with the French Government. The rumour, nothwithstanding its effect on the Stock Exchange, is wholly disbelieved elsewhere. Seven hundred Portuguese, vt'ho had cscaped on board Sir Charles Cotton's fieet, have arrived in this country. Advices. have also been received, that, about the - ame number are now on their way from off Lisbon. Individuals are Hying from Portugal daily in great num- bers ; aud so eager are the Portuguese to escape from the clutches of the Fiench, that none remain behind except those who dare not attempt to remove their families and properLy, from the fear of detection. At the date of the latest account from our squadron, < Jf Lisbon, it was hourly expected that tin; Russian fleet would attempt to put to sea, in consequence of the great scarcity of provisions. Bread was 1 ( id. per lb. and meat 8d. Bonaparte was endeavouring to raise 10,000,000/. sterling in Portugal. The enemy's force in the Tagus consisted of nine saibot' the line, Russian, two frigates, and three brigs. The British squadron was amply supplied with water and provisions. A cartel, with French prisoners on'board has been refused admittance into Movlaix. Besides the French Officers, there was Mrs. Stewart, wife of Lieut. Stewart, who was lately wrecked on the coast of France. Tbe French Would not suffer any communication with tbe shore ; a boat was not suffered to land, nor would they receive even a letter.— Hitherto Morlaix has always been acciessible to flags of truce.

Moody, a soldier in the 2d battalion of the Coldstream Guards, called- on Mr. Beal, of tiie Feathers public- house, Halt- street, Covent- garden, and displaying a handful of guineas, told him he had actually ulore money than he knew what to do with. Mr. B. questioned him how hu came by it, when lie stated, that in Fleet- street, that morning, an elderly gen- tleman, in a Yorkshire dialect, addressed liiui familiarly, and askeil him to hold his purse tilliu: returned, which would lie in a short time; tliat he. then went into a house ( supposed to be a brothel) with a girl; that he waited oil the spot four hours ; but the " Ttnlleman did not return. Mr. B., with a neighbour, then accompanied the soldier to the house described, ill Black Horse- eourt, Fleet- street, but the people denied having' seen such a person, arid' referred tlieni to another house in the court, but without success. They then returned to Mr, B,\ s, when he pre- vailed on the soldier to ascertain what sum he had, which proved to be 1 HO guineas, 50/. in bank notes, and. a pro- missory note, due yesterday, for 50/. They then repaired to Mr. Wright's banking house, who refused to take charge of the money, but recommended them to apply- at ftJw- street, where the soldier persisted in his story, and said, he had no more money; but, on being searched, easlito the amount of til. 10s. tid. Was found, and he was ordered to be detained till the business can he further investigated. 17,( ill 17, at;) 5,772 15.8 20 HI', 772 16,211 14,( HS IS ,333 17,551 3,927 9,273 7,0* 33 7,403 13,035 10,592 1.9,6* 95 5,927 17,127 0,931 17.009 lst Drawn No. 9, 2d ditto 24, 3d ditto 41, 4th ditto 45, Vth ditto... 6th ditto .. 7th ditto 8th ditto 9th ditto loth ditto.... lltli ditto 12th ditto 13th ditto.... 14th ditto.. 15th ditto 16th ditto 17th ditto 4;>, 18th ditto 21, 19th ditto.. 8, 20th ditto 22, . 10, • . 4, .43, • 5, • 4, • ' I. • 18, .41, ditto ditto ditto ditto dittD .. £.< 25,000 7,000 .... 6,000 f)',( KK) 3,000 3,000 6,000 .... 4,000 4,000 4,0110 ' 3,000 6,000 3,000 4,000 3,000 4,0110 3,000 4,000 4,000 2,000 PORTSMOUTH VICTUALLING OFFICE, April 19, 1808. , N Thursday, the 5th of May next, at ten o'clock in the forenoon, I shall be ready to sell to the highest bidder, in several lots, the undermentioned quantities of OLD STAVES, HEADING, IRON HOOPS, tec. lying in his Majesty's Cooperage at Wecvill, near Gosport, where any persons inclinable to purchase, may have the liberty of viewing the same in the cltmmon working hours, any day before the sale, viz.

The Ambassadors of France and Russsia, in Vienna, have frequent conferences with one another. In the southern parts of Russia great preparations are making ; they are fitting out there a great number of ships of the line and frigates, anL'the fleet of Sebas- topol, in the Crimea, will sail as soon as the season permits.

Colonel Ulan It/ brought up a Bill making certain alterations in . the Poor Laws in regard to Settlements. •— Read a first, and ordered to be read a second time 011 the ifith of May next.

On the motion of Mr. 1- b. iter, the House resolved i ; to a Committee cf Supply on Irish Miscellaneous Services. The first resolution proposed by Mr. Foster was a sum of 10, GOO/. for printing in the Dublin Gazette, and other Jicwspapei's, Proclamations, & e. by the Government. Mr. Darnell objected to the motion, and stated that he should move as an amendment, that the words, " other • Sew si apers," be. omitted. He was induced to this from the fact of one of these Newspapers having, published, on the '.' lst of January last, a proclamation, prohibiting intercour- e. with vessels coining from Gibraltar and the Mediterranean, on account of a fi ver that raged in the garrison at that fortress three years ago. He quoted other iustauceSequally absurd. ^ Sir 1. UclleJy argued that this blunder was not of consequence to the public, the Editors being paid by the jfear, en d not by the eotunrn.' Mr. Windham contended tbat such wanton abuses ought to bit cheeked. Mr. Laing thought that Government wanted the press ef Jrcl. iwi under controul : and provided that object could be attained, neitbe'r the pi ice nor the absurdities published wen; regarded. Mr. Croaker accounted for the insertion of antiquated proclamations, hy. relating that a friend of his, Editor of an Irish paper, always kept them ready for insertion, and when the wind was contrary, so a » to prevent the arrival 4) 1' the Mails, a Government proclamation was inserted, without regard to its date or utility. The Chancellor of the Exchequer promised that the abuse should be enquired into, and remedied. The item was then agreed to, together with the follow- ing' :— 25,000/. li'oh currency for the purposes of criminal jrosecutions, and other law coerces; 937/. ditto, for carrying on the discoveries which were begun in the gold Mine* of Wieklow mountains ; 2,000/. ditto, for the Cork In titution ; 1,8541, ditto, for repairs of Dr. Stevens's Hospital; 4,03SI. ditto, for erecting buildings, in addition t > Sir Patrick Dmm's Hospital; 512/. B. v. ditto, to Edward Kent, for arrears paid through mistake to the treasury in Ireland; < 1,434/. ditto, for salaries to Lottery- Officers in Ireland. On the motion of Mr. Hushisson, the House resolved itself into a Committed of Ways and Means, when he pro- posed that the sum uf 2,223, i) 00/. 5s, lid. being the sur- plus of the Grants of last year, which exceeded the Esti- mates, be applied to the service of the current year; that the Pay of the Militia of England be provided for from the proceeds of the Land- tax, and tbat of Ireland from the Consolidated Fund of that country. The House being resumed, Mr. S. 11. Ijishington moved for tbe Returns of Wheat, Bailey, and Rye, imported to this country since the 1st. of January, 17.95, and the bounties paid thereon; which were granted.'— Adjourned. THURSDAY, April 28.] The House met at the usual hour of four o'clock, to ballot for a Committee to inves- tigate the merits of the Grantpound Election Petition; but there being only 40 Members present, and the Gren- • ville Act requiring 100 Members, the House Immediately adjourned. LONDON, FRIDAY, APRIL 29. Last night Dutch papers to the ? 6th tilt. teached town, but they are quite harren of intelligence. Orders, it is said, have been issued for the Spanish fleet in the harbour of Cadiz to form a junction with ' the French squadrons ; but how these orders tire to be cx'.' i'qted without permission from our Admirals, we arc not told. A letter from Leghorn states, that no aeeo. oifs h ive been received of the Piochefort squadron. It is said that there is a constant interchange of frmtiers between Vienna and Paris, and that some « v: lueiatiinis of importance are carrying on. Bonaparte li i- probably required some further cession of territory . flour Austria. It is thought he has demanded Trieste. All the late intelligence from the North, derived « hn Ay from private letters, is indicative of the spirit and su< ess with, which the Swedes have commenced the war, and greatly tends to confirm the accounts of the retreat of tii Rn- si, 01s from Finland. Variohscauses are assigned for t » U retreat, but most of the letters say that it was ' oVasioiU'd by the want of provisions. The gross mis- management which usually characterises tbe progress of a lb. ; in army renders this highly probable. It is supposed that liena| iavle is so much engaged in Spain and Portugal, tbat be has not leisure to push his enterprises against • ; B « ed.- ji, Rnspii. eti ng the operations against Norway, advices from Car', i; oU, of the 13th of April, state that the Swedes t o ..• .1 Uiiit country at two points, Elverem and Shilling- lo ok ; Coionel Ghati with the Dalecarliaus at the former, juid Colonel Liigerbung with the regiments of Upland and If.- I line, i anil at the latter.

A jmmggling vessel has brought accounts from Flushing up to th » : 7th inst. Information had reacheiHhat town, calculated to ri e an alarm ill the neighbourhood. The French troops stationed at Bremen, Hamburgh, and lb,' adjacent, district of Germany, had been ordered to inarch instantly into Holland, where their arrival was expected every day.— These movements, it was understood, bad been occasioned by an apprehension, generally enter- tained, that an attack was about to be made by the English upon some part of the Dutch coast. At the same tithe it was reported, that the embargo Upon the shipping in Flushing was to be taken off iu the course of the following day. Letters from Gibraltar were yesterday received, dated the 6th inst. which mention that a detachment, con- sisting of an officer and. 100 men, had been sent from that place to take possession of a small island on the Barbarv coast, which had been ceded to us by the EinpeVor of Morocco. This island, it is added, will he of great use to us in watching the enemies' gun- boats in the Bay, which have annoyed us so much. Notice has been given by Government that the trade with Portugal will 110 longer be permitted. No further licences will be granted. The Parliament of Lower Canada was opened on the 2.9th of January, with a speech from the Governor, in which, after lamenting the dispute with the United Slates of America, be - expressed a hope tliat by an equitable accommodation thereof, the calamities of war would be averted from two nations, who from habits of affinity, language, and the tics of common ancestry, seem destined by Providence for the enjoyment of the blessings of continued peace; while tbe reciprocal advantages of their commercial intercourse seem no less to point them out to each other, as the objects of a mutual connection, of amity, and confidence. Lord Gardner has resigned the command of the Channel fleet, on account of ill health, and is suc- ceeded bv Lord Gatnbipr, who will hoist his flag in a few days. Lord Gambier will be succeeded at the Admiralty Board by . Admiral Domet. Capt. Searle, one of the Officers engaged in the late gallant exploits off the Spanish coast, is pro- moted to the rank of Post Captain. The San Raphael, 84, and two other 84 gun ships, in ordinary, are ordered to be fitted up to receive the emigrant Portuguese from Lisbon, who are to have births 011 board each ship, particularly those that have families. CAPTURES by the FREXCII in INDIA.— The following country ships have been taken in the Bay of Bengal by the Piedmontiese and Semilante frigates, and a oriva- teer commanded by Sureouff, viz. Udney, Maria, Rosource, Mangles, Trafalgar, Elizabeth, Gilwell,- Sarah, Eliza, Ca- roline, Admiral Aplin, Althea, Hunter, Susannah, High- land Chief, Louisa; amounting to upwards of 6' 000 tons of shipping, * Upon perusing the account of such serious depredation - upon our commerce, we naturally enquire where t : Commander ill Chief in that quarter of the world is ac- tually stationed, whose presence might have prevented a loss so - igntficaht. We understand be is now engaged i i an expedition off Balavia. We trust that it will hareafter appear to have been an expedition* for tbe oublie be leflt, and not a privateering cruize, profitable only to tbe can- tors, and affording 110 compensation for the losses' our merchants are condemned to bear.

After being twenty- seven days in an open boat, a id endur- ing innumerable hardships, they landed at Gaml l- are, Guadaloupe, whence they made their way to Point Petrc, where they were humanely treated by the Americans.

Cotter OF CHANCERY, April 28.— At the Sitting pf the Court, Mr. Ludlam, against whom a commission of lu- nacy had issued some time since, addressed the Lord Chancellor from tbe back bar. I ! e requested his Lordship wouid appoint a day lor taking bis case into conside- ration, as every day's delay was of the utmost importance and extremely injurious to him. He hnd already lost two of his material witnesses,' anil a third was under orders for the West Indies. He therefore trusted these circumstances would be sufficient apology for trespassing- upon his Lord- ship.— The Lord Chancellor said he would confer with the Master, and appointed Mr. Ludloui to attend him iu his private room 011 the morrow. Immediately after, a poor man, who has long been in the habit of attending tbe Court, who i^ better known by the title of the Duke of Norfolk, and whom we have bad occasion to notice in former papers, contrived to station himself in front of the bar, before Sir Samuel Homily, and addressing bis Lordship, begged to know if his Lonl- shsp would make any order in bis ease. He bad, li : said, been thitown into prison for debt, was now living iu a very poor anil humble dwelling, from which he was afraid he Should be obliged to seek assistance from the workhouse, where he had already been once compelled to go. Ilis title, to an independent property ( be added) could be fully made out to bis Lordship's sati- faction. The Lord Chan- cellor assured hi- m he had given bis case every Consideration iu his power, but found it was quite impossible for him to give him any assistance, which, however, his Lordship re- gretted exceedingly. FATAL Dai'. t..— Capt. Grant and Lieut. Lavton, of tbe ,95th regiment, having had a dispute during their march to Harwich, where t'ne regiment is embarking, went into a field, at a small distance from the town, to settle it. After firing twice, Capt, Grant was wounded in the spine, and immediately expired. LUut. Layton and the seconds have ab conded. SEVERITY OF TIIB WEATHER.— The Edinburgh papers of Saturday say, that in the past weak there hatl been a suc- cession f snow storms ; and though the snow soon disap- peared in thatimmed ate neighbourhood, in some parts of the country it lay so deep as to interrupt the communica- tion,— On Monday last the snoiv wa£ so deep upou Stan- more, in Westmoreland, as to render it necessary to cut e I'oad through it. ANOTHER SUICIDE.— On Wednesday an unhappy young ma. i, nam, d George Greenwell, residing in Northumber- land- court, Charitig- Ci'o s, put an end to his existence bv nearly severing his head from his body. The implements of destruction, two razors, were fou id near him. He has left a wife and a young family to lament his loss. Report states lie wa the offspring of a Nobleman of high rank, and was in th Royal Navy. BOW- STREET.-— Yesterday J. Moody, the soldier upon whom a large sum of 111 mey was found, was put to the bar, when Bowden, a journeyman carpenter, stated that he bad lost a sum similar to that found upon the prisoner ; and on being desi.- ed to give an- account of himself, a, id the circumstance, he observed, that he was a married man; that he had been six years saving a part of the sum by ta k- w irk ; the remainder Was lent him by bis uncle and bro- th r, for the purpose of taking a public- house; aiid, at tlie t 111 • he lost the money, be was i., treaty for the King's Ann public- house, opposite Shoreditch Church, for wnich lie was to pay, with the fixtures, 750/. That M • . Godwin and Co. porter- brewers, Mr. Chowiug, ; de- biviver, and a distiller, were to assist him with the money he wa del- dent. He bad received from Mr. Che- vei'ing 50t. note, which answered tile description of one foil d on 1 be soldier. La t Monday the treaty was to have be - n ea i. ie l into effect; be put 320/. tied up in a red h ndkerchi f, into his pocket; in the course of the day be had be 11 with a great number of persons to con . ult, and drank to excess, so much so, that he bad no recollection of any occurrence after nine at night, when h • was at bis brother's, in Browne's- lane, Spital- fields. On Tuesday i. ning he found him elf at the Three Compasses, iu Drury- lane, in c impany with a girl and a soldier; he di ank pari and gin with them, whicn he paid'for ; at this time he had his money; but the purl and gin overcame him, and he lost his senses again. The Magistrate said he was afraid he had 111 recollection of the subject, but he alledged that he was sufficiently collected on Tuesday morning, to know be had the money, and that he, the girl, and a soldier, went out of tbe house together, and he believed I be pri- soner to be the man, but from that time he did not recol- lect any thing, until he found himself at twelve o'clock in Drury- lane, " where he missed his money, which brought him to his senses. He was ashamed to go near any of his friends, until Wednesday, when, on making known hi loss, be was informed there was a soldier taken up, and that a similar sum had been found in his pos « e - ion. Mr. Read ordered the business to stand over for a further inves- tigation. Isaac Dawberry, the coachman, was next put to the bar, charged, with several others, with a violent assault upon Margaret We- t, in a stable in Dake- street, Lineoln's- inn- field . The account she now gave, differed materially from tbat she gave 011 her attendance at the Office, when the prisoner was first apprehended; yet, with respect to the outrage, it remains just the same. It appeal's that when all the villains, except Dawberry, left the unfortu- nate girl, they thought she was dead, anil had laid her ill ii corner, under some hay. AVhen she was sufficiently re- covered to move, llawrberry appeared much astonished, arid he wa - endeavouringjfo get her out of tlie stable when the Officers arrived, and took him into custody. He was committed for trial. SHADIVF. I. L.— Yesterday three Lascars underwent ex- amination, charged with the murder of one of their own countrymen in Bluegate fields. They were fully committed CORN EXCHANGE, April 29.

The Irish Recognisance Bill was brought up from the Commons, and read a first time. ' Lord Sidmouth complained that the returns made of the Danish captures had been unreasonably delayed at the Transport Board, and on examining them he found they were sp imperfect, that lie coiild not bring the subject under discussion on Tuesday, hnt must delay it till the returns were more perfect. He moved to discharge the summons for Tuesday, and also a resolution to enforce a proper return of the Danish captures; boLh of which mo- tions were carried.— Adjourned to Monday. HOUSE OF CQMMQNg. FRIDAY, April 2^.] A Committee was chosen by bal- lot to investigate the merits of the Grampound Election Petition. v Mr. Tremayne hrought in a Bill to sccure the burial of bodies east on shore from wrecks, & e. which was read a first time. 1 ' Mr. Lang moved for leave to bring in a Bill for the bet- ter examining and auditing the accounts o'l' the Paymaster General. There were, he said, accounts in the Paymaster's office which have been laying there 25 years unaudited, and from a difficulty of obtaining vouchers, the Paymaster's cash account' loulilnot be matte up. It was, therefore, with a view to re'inedy this inconvenience that the Bill was submitted. He then took a view of Mr. Burke's Bill, whieh did not sufficiently guard against all abuses. In future it was intended that the monies issued fiVm the Paymaster Generals office shoftl'd bts by warrant instcUd of by letter. • . After a few words from Dr. Lawrence, in defence of Mr. Bueke's Bill, leave was granted. Mr. Hutkissor., in the absence of Lord Castlereagli, postponed the second reading of the Local Militia Bill, which stood for fa- day, till Monday. O. i the motion of Mr. For. it. ci-, the House resolved it- pelf into n Committee, to consider of the Supplies granted to his Majesty, when he proposed that 3250/ 1 Irish cur- rency, be granted towards the support ' of the college of Maynooth. Sir J. Newport said, the sum was too small, and pro- posed an amendment, making it 13,000/. On a division, the amendment was negatived, and the original motion carried. in a Committee of Ways and Means, Mr. I. ethbridre moved, that si duty Of five'' guineas ' be " lAid 011 every double - barrelled guil used for killing game, '& e. ' Sir W. Elford, Mr. Alderman Combe, and the Chancel- lor of the Exchequer, opposed the motion, which,' ou a d vision, was negatived by a great majority. Adjourned. Hamburgh papers to liie 13th.' injt. have l> eon re- ceive^, whifch contain some interesting intelligence. An article in a paper of the 9th is particularly impor- tant, for, if we may credit it, Bonaparte really intends to attempt the much talked of project of inarching troops over land to India. He has obtained, it apT pears by the following letter, the consent of the Porte to this extraordinary measure :— VlNWU, March 30. The Porte has permitted the march of the French troops through its territory towards Persia. On the Sth and 7th inst. a great Divan was bolden, in winch the proposition of th- Emperor of the French, for inarching a corps of troops through the Turkish do- minions into Persia, was discussed, and finally acceded to by the Government. This intelligence was brought to Vienna by an ex- traordinary courier, Yesterday more Dutch Papers to the 27' h reached town, and also Paris Journals to the 17th. It is stated in the former, that the French troops entered Madrid on the evening of the 23- i of March, and that great rejoicings tflok place in consequence o. f their arrival! The French join the cry of popular indignation against the Prince of Peace. In a Proclamation published by Murat on his arrival at Madrid, he expresses Bonapaate's approbation of the measures adopted by the Spanish Government against this, wretched man. All persons possessing any jewels or other articles of value belonging to him, are called upon to deliver them up, under the pain of fine aitd imprisonment. It- was on the 2$ th ult. that Murat entered Madrid. On the 1st inst. he published H proclamation, in which the arrival of the Emperor is promised, and the French iroops are exhorted to. keep themselves perfect itiJhe manoeuvres, of firing-, a pretty broad hint to the Spaniards o, f the means by which their new friends mean to n\ ake good their quarters. An article in one of the unofficial French papers staj. es, that, 011 the 7th inst. the new King was to leave Madrid, accom- panied by the Duke de L'Infant ado, to meet the French Emperor. The fortune accqmulated by the Prince of the peace is. rated in those accounts at 500 millions of byres; about 22 millions English. There are several French statements relative to the proceedings of the Rochcfort and other hostile squa- drons, now in tl\ e Mediterranean. If they continue long out, some of our squadrons may have the good famine to assist them in sojne of tjheir manoeuvres. It is said that a respectable house in the City has received a confirmation of the report of a revolcrtion in Russia, in whUsh the Emperor of Russia and his brother the Grand Duke Constautine were put to death.—- Globe. It is reported in a fetter from Bilhoa, that the Fran- chise French frigate, and a transport, which sailed some time ago from Cortiniia for Buenos Ayres, have been captured by some of our cruizers; but no official account thereof has reached the Admiralty. Sir Harry Burrard Neale is appointed Captain of the Channel lleet, under Lord Gamhier. It is expected that the House of Peers will receive the report of the Committee on the, Banbury Peerage in the course of the next week. A letter from Galway, dated the 2Is. t iost. states, that in consequence of the shipment of 70 tons of meal on board the Ann, for Londonderry, the populace rose to prevent its sailing, and stripped the vessel of her sails. This outrage holds out an alarming prospect ; Galway being one of the cheapest markets in Ireland, for grain, and materially looked to for a supply, to meet the necessity from the inadequate crops in the north. A principal Clerk in one of the Naval Departments lias been dismissed on the score of peculation ; and a strict in- vestigation is making into the conduct of eight or nine other Clerks in the same office.

We have authority to contradict the statement made in our last Journal of Mr. Mildmav having been a prisoner in Russia: he returned, will\ several other Gentlemen, from Pctersburgii, a few days ago,, at which place he met with no difficulty in obtaining regular Passports from the Russian Minister. The Right Honourable the Paymasters General have been pleased to appoint William Purdue Smith, E> sq. of Eling, in the county of Southampton, to be their Deputy to his Majesty's Forces, 011 the Expedition up, del: the command of General Sir John Moore, K. B. On Tuesday George Hollis, Esq. was re elected Treasurer of the County for the ensuing year. On Weduesday the 50th and two following days., the Yonng Gentlemen of the Academy, Gosport, were grati- fied with a full assemblage of their friends, to witness their annual exhibition of rhetorical exercises, commencing w ith a speaking chorus, introducing and connecting several recitations by the junior pupils ; after which, Mason's ad- mired tragedy of Oaraetacus was performed. Dr. William Burnev, the head master, lias this year presented his pu- pils with scenes and dresses entirely new and classically correct, nor hive the gentlemen appeared undeserving either the expence or pains bestowed 011 then), as they ac- quitted themselves, not merely to the satisfaction, but to the admiration of every person who witnessed the perform- ance. Mr, Burn's Caractacus was supported in a matu^ q'r that did him the highest credit. Broughton's Modtuf was extremely just, Missing, Stow, and Lemyn, far exceeded any praise we can bestow ; nor should Bccker, Lance, Gadden, Lock, Burrill, Blackwood, Pole, Rous, and Burney, pass unnoticed, did our time allow us to point out the merits due to each. ' File audience, which was about two hundred and fifty each night, included nearly all the principal families for many miles ro& nd, who ap- peared fully sensible of the great credit so justly due to the conductor aud different masters belonging to this esta- blishment. On Monday last died, aged 70 years, Mr. Thomas Tarrant, many years a respectable, inhabitant of Southampton. On Sunday evening died Joseph Barker, Esq. Mayor of this city, aged 73 years.

Several prisoners were tried, but their offences were not the deepest dve. The heaviest punishment inflU. cod was three months imprisonment, to which Robert Barrett was sentenced, for stealing a piece of two- inch plank. The manufacture of' broad cloth is on the increase in this county. We know not to what circumstance this is to be attributed, in the present restricted state of our commerce, but the fact is indubitable. From tbe report of the Inspector totlie Magistrates at the Quarter Sessions, upwards of 2000 pieces were manufactured in the last year, which is a greater quantity than was ever manufactured ill any one yea\ before'. At the Sessions of the Peace for this City held on Thursday, Joseph Smith, a soldier in the second Somerset Militia, was convicted iif stealing a dish, containing half- pence, at the Ship public- house, ii^ Winchester- street, and was sentenced to two months imprisonment, ' and to be publicly whipped in the Market- place, The Rev.
