V From TUESDAY MAY 24, to FRIDAY MAY 27, 1808. THURSDArs POST. From the LONDON PAPERS, May 23. LONDON. gHE French & Dutch Papers fre- quently take an opportunity to mention the embassy which BONAPARTE sent to the KING £ of PERSIA.— We think- it right ' to state, that our Ministers have by no means beeo negligent upon this subject; for Sir H. JONES sailed from Ports- mouth in the Sapphire Frigate, in October last, on an embassy to PERSIA. He left the Cape on the 28th January. Tuesday a Cartel arrived from Harlingen, having on board the crew of his Majesty's ship Flora, which Was wrecked on the Dutch coast. OPORTO, May 4.—" Of the contribution levied by General JUNOT, now DUKE D'A- BRANTES, amounting to 4,000,000 of old crowns, the first payment, one- third, has been enforced, and the greater part paid in. When the French Emperor's army arrived in Lisbon, not one man in ten had shoes; now they are well clothed at the expence of the inhabitants of Portugal, who hold them in the greatest detestation." On Monday the Commanders of the Hon. East India Company's Naval Service gave a splendid and elegant dinner at the London Ta- vern to Mr. DRUMMOND, late Chief of the British Factory at- Canton in China, in testi- mony of the regard and psteem in which that gentleman has been held by the above very respectable corps. A vat of strong beer, containing nearly 1000 barrels, the property of Messrs. GOODWYN and Co. of East Smithfield, burst on Tuesday evening last, with a most tremendous crash, carrying every thing before it 5 only 100 bar- rels were saved. On the 5th instant, as Mr LACvwas return- ing from Wooler Cottage, where he had been receiving the rents for Sir FRANCIS BLAKE, Bart, about 11 o'clock at night, he was accost- ed by a person near Woofer Brewery, with " How do you do, Mr LACY ? I hope you are very well; it is a fine evening." The man im- mediately came across to Mr LACY, as he sup- posed to shake hands with him, instead of which he struck him with a bludgeon on the cheek bone, but beingan oblique stroke it graz- ed upon the arm. Mr LACY immediately made a push at the man's head and struck his hat off. He then caught the ruffian by the hair, and clapping spurs to his horse, dragged him about ISO yards, when the hair gave way and he fell to the ground. In the act of dismounting to secure him, Mr L. observed two persons run- ning on the contrary side of the hedge, and having nothing in his hand but a small whip, he thought it prudent to make tbe best of his way past the hedge, and on looking back he saw the two men standing at a corner, the fence beii:; so strong they could not get over; io'consequence their design was frustrated.

It contains also much interest- ing and useful information respecting the progres- sive improvements in the Highlands, furnished from the reports of the Commissioners. But its principal superiority to all ' other Itineraries of Scotland, consists in the distinct exhibition of the Gentlemen's Seats and Villas, which appear from tbe respective roads. The distances from place to place are given on the left hand, and the gentle- men's seats oft the right band side of every folio. SIMPSON'S BOARDING SCHOOL.

April 1808. THE Commissioners and Trustees, for Manu- factures, & c. in Scotland, hereby intimate, that by the Law relative to Lint- Seed, ( 13. Geo. I. cap. 2b'. and 24. Geo. II. cap. 31.) if any person shall sell, or expose to sale, or shall even import e- ny bad seed,— or seed of different years,— or different qua- lities mixed together,— or seed not thsrdughly cleansed; or if any person sell old seed, as new, or under a false description s any respect; all such seed, or the price thereof, is liable to be forfeited, and the proprietor or vender is also liable in a penalty not exceeding 51, per- hogshead. But in case of Lint- Seed being damaged iA the conveyance by sea, it is not liable to forfeiture.,, pro- vided thatj immediately on landing the seed, the importer shall produce sufficient proof before a Jus- tice of the Peace or Magistrate, that the damage was received at sea, and shall at the same time fender sufficient security to the Secretary of the Trustees for Manufacturess: that such seed shall not be sown , but shall be made into oil,- or exported. The law requires, that the seller shall, along With every parcel of Lint- seed, deliver an account subscribed by him, to the buyer, specifying not only the quantity, the price, and the port from whence it came, but particularly " the year of its growth, and the Country where it grew( which circumstances must always be precisely stated in the importer's invoice.) And as such a certificate may enable the buyer, in case of imposition, to prosecute the sel- ler more effectually for redress, no one should ever take seed without a certificate, of the above parti- culars, subscribed by the seller. The law also requires, that all Lint- seed must be sold by the Linlithgow barley measure, streaked; and that every such measure must be first stamped by the Dean' of Guild of some Royal Burgh, with the usual mark of such Burgh, and also with these words, " Linlithgow, Barley Measure :"•— other- Wise the vender forfeits , the measure, and: forty shillings for every offence* In all Advertisements of the Sale of Lintse. ed, and upon all Packages in which it is brought to market, the Dealers should specify the Tear cf its froivth, and the name of the Country where it grew.— f this be omitted, the Public have a right to pre- sume, that it is omitted intentionally, and that it is Old Seed, which is understood very rarely to pro- duce even a tolerable crop. The Riga, the Dutch, and the Philadelphia Lint- seed, are the « nly fo- reign kinds which, from experience, can be safely recommended for sowing in this Country. 1 And the Trustees bei>: g informed, that,- tinder he pretext of importing Lint- seed for, • crushing A CAR D.

Dealers will observe, that after a seizure is made, its validity Is to be tried in a Court- of Justice, in terms of the above statutes ; and not on any ad- j count by the Trustees, as some have erroneously supposed I any application therefore, at this Office, in a case of seizure, will be entirely fruitless. Importers ought to give the most pointed orders to their Foreign Correspondents, that the Seed shall be thoroughly cleaned before it be put into the Barrels, informing them, that If they neglect cleaning the Seed, it. is by the law of this country expressly liable seizure and to forfeiture, in tiie same manner as if it were bad Seed, or mixed Seed.

His Lord- ship moved the Previous Question £ EDINBURGH light thing to touch, with an innovating hand, either the Civil or Criminal Code, as it now stood. He objected to the compensation clause, as no person was now brought to trial, against whom bills of indictment had not been found by the majority of the Grand Jury. MR. WILBERFORCE could not help depre- cating all trivial objections to a measure like this. He thought, for his awn part, there were great objections to the existing criminal code of England. SIR JOHN NEWPORT made some animad- versions on the state of the gaols in Ireland, where it appeared, from a report of the Inspec- tor of prisons, the unhappy captives were ac- tually in danger of being eat alive by rats ! | SIR G. HILL Contend^!, that in Ireland, & • particularly in the service of Ulster, there was I as much humanity on these subjects as in Eng- land. J SIR FRANCIS BtiRiJETt put in a protest a- ! gainst being pledged in support of the motion, | without giving it more mature consideration. ACVERT1SER —. • Lord HOLLAND and Lord LAUDERDALE contended that the attack upon DENMARK was the most unprecedented and immoral Act eVer committed by any nation.

He would be glad to know how those cases differed, except in their want of success ? EARLS STANHOPE and LAUDERDALE la- boured to prove a wide difference between the two cases.

Another division took place oft the other Resolutions— Contents 16— Non- contents 37— Majority for Ministers 21. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Tuesday, May 17. CARNATL'C QUESTION. SIR THOMAS TURTON made a very Iting speech respecting the conduct of Marquis ' WELLESLEY, and concluded, with moving a string of Resolutions, against the Marquis. MR. WALLACE spoke against the Resolu- tions, and Lord ARCH. HAMILTON for them. MAJOR ALLEN went into a general defence of the conduct of the British Governors in INDIA for the last twenty years, and particu- larly approved of the proceedings of Lord WELLESLEY. On the motion of Mr WINDHAM, the fur- ther debate was adjourned to Tuesday next. The House adjourned at HALF- PAST ONE O'CLOCK on Wednesday morning. WeOntslkq, May 18. PENAL LAWS. SIR S. ROMILLY said, it % v3s much to be la- mented, in some points of- View, that Capital punishments were so commonly enacted by law; he did not mean to say they were as fre fluently inflicted; for the humanity of an en- lightened age had discovered both the cruelty and impolicy of such severity. An eminent writer or a distant country, the Marquis BEC- CARIA, had in the last century published his sentiments on the miseries resulting to the in- dividual, and tbe evils accruing to the public, from such ® system. That celehratcd authoi bad told us, that the prevention of crimes by the terrors of the law jvas less dependent upon tlic quantum than upon the certainty of punish- ment. The expedients adopted in this country were the reverse of this. In the year 1805, of 50 there were capitally convicted, only one- fifth had £ ufjdred under the stroke of the law. In i$ Qfi, the offenders of the same class were 915, of - which bnly .57 were executed, or in the proportion of about one- sixth to the ag- regpte number. For . murder and forgery very w escaped, but for other crimes almost- all vfcre relieved from the awful mandate of- the Jaw. The integrity even of our English Jury, that grettt Palladium'of our rights, was render- eJ-^ ifestionabltf by such a system. Thus Ju- ror,?, after the most indisputable evidence, to igrai the capital part of the punishment, oiler, dec Ved property stolen to be beneath the reai. ftf'eit} and jurymen were thus brought on the most solemn occasions, to trif. e with their con- s:': snces I His first proposal was confined t£> the repeal of the laws which direct severe pu- nishments for small sums, and to pass otliers applying the like punishments to amounts pro- portioned to the augmented value of money m our own times. He next adverted to a propo- j s. d perfectly new to the law of England, and' that w. S the assignment of some compensation to the party accused in particular cases.— Throughout England, excepting Middlesex, persons suspected might lie eight months, and in the Northern counties, twelve gaonths; con- fined. in a loathsome jail, while their families were exposed to want and misery, ; tfld to all the immoral contagion of the situation where the parent was immured. The most fatal dis- eases, both cotporeal nnd mer. tal, were often the cmuequcnce; and no alleviation was prc- THE SOLICITOR GENERAL doubted very much the propriety of this plan. He thought the evils to be derived from It would very much overbalance its benefits. If the compen- sation Were to be made out of the county rate, it might prove a great discouragement to pro- secutions, or in the event of a trial, that cir- cumstance might operate in some minds against the accused. THF. CHANCELLOR OF the EXCHEQUER was of opinion, that the remedy proposed would be more injurious than the evil com- plained of. MR. FULLER was afraid that by the intro- duction of such complicated arrangements, peo- ple would be so puzzled that they wotdd not understand the law at all. Leave was given to bring in the bilh Thursday, May 19. LOCAL MILITIA BILL. The House went into a Committee on this Bill. SIR JAMES HALL ihought that the period of 18 was- certainly the fittest time for young men to commence military service, and that every year after they " became less and less fit. He was of opinion, that if the ballot were confin- ed to young men between the ages of 18 and 19, a sufficient number would be found to an- swer the purposes required, without canying the ballot to men of more advanced years.— He thought the age of 35 wduld be much too advanced. SIR JAMES MONTGOMERY thought the range of years stated in tile clause too exten- sive, as it would give'a greater number of men than vtere required. LORD CASTLEREAGH said, it was only in counties where Volunteers did not come for- ward in sufficient numbers, that the ballot was to be adopted at all; and as to the alteration proposed, he had no objection to accede to this amendment, and substitute the age of 30, in the place of 35, the service to commence from the age ot 18, pi ovided it was agreed to extend tha period to - lo years of age. The Amendment wSfc agreed to. Several other clauses were discussed. Adjourned at Two O'CLOCK on FRIDAY MORN INC.'. Friday, May 20. THE DARDANELLES. MR. W. TAYLOR rose to make his promised motion relative to the Dardanelles Expedition. He reprobated in strong terms the foolish and unnecessary Expeditions of the late Admini- stration, who had the impudence to characte- rise themselves by the title of " All the Ta- lent, i." By their absurd Expeditions, many brave men had been ' sacrificed to no purpose, and the Country disgraced. Not only the ARMY, but what it had been seldom found practicable for any Administration ( however weak and incapable) to effect, the BRITISH NAVY had also been disgraced, and it was a Wonder that it escaped destruction is the dan- gerous passage of the Dardanelles. The entire system- of the war, with the OTTOMAN POR'TE, he uttuly contfcmned, as contrary to the dic- tates of justice and general policy. It was cer- tainly no business of ours to interfere in such disputes, and commence a war unjust in its . principle, and unsuccessful in its prosecution, pile concluded by reading several Resolutions, as his motion ; the first of which was,: " That it is the Opinion of this House, that his Majes- ty's fleet, under the command of Sir J. T. DUCKWORTH, arrived before Constantinople on the 2( th of Feb. 1807, ^- remained t'teie' ten days without effecting any important object/' MR T. GRENVILLK expressed himself ex- trernely' gM that this motion h;. d at length been brought forward in- such a shape at to Ifbafcp it tangible; it would enable him and his Colleagues to give that satisfaction to the House o l the subject which th'ey h.' id long wished to d>. He said that by the Triple Alliance, fa: di- vided for such a complicated state'of distressed ift 1799, and by", the treaty oL Lasey, of " "" alityi if not the strict Which this cohntry was guarantee, it bccame Was it not fit that the liberality* justice of the law, should provide some remu- neration for such calamitous cases ? He con- cluded with tpbyitig; that so much of an Act passed in the 8th Elizabeth, as inflicted cer- tain punishments for private stealing, be re- pealed. ERBE& T ebscrvcd, that it was not a the daty of this country to support and ex tend," as far as \ y; is reconcileabie With justice, the influence of Russia. Although there was a considerable risk in ships attacking land bat- teries, yet he believed naval Officers- thought but little of the risk of passing batteries, even if they were in a better ttutc than the castles tor 180 3. of the Dardanelles, and had French Artille- rists in them. He should next touch upon that part of the charge which related to Alex- andria ; and it appeared to him) that any charge respecting Alexandria, ought rather to be brought against the present Mi- nisters, who had abandoned it. When hosti- lities had been regularly commenced against TURKEY, it was perfectly consistent with jus- tice and policy to possess ourselves of a place that we knew TURKEY attached a consider- able value to, from, which Constantinople de- rived a considerable part of its provisions. As to the subsequent military operations in Egypt.. he thought it unnecessary to occupy Rosstta, MR. CANNING said, it the Right Honourable Gentleman thought that the triple alliance was still binding, he would ask him, did he not recollect that one of the principal ar- ticles in it was that which guaranteed the in- tegrity of the TURKISH EMPIRE ? And hi would ask him also, was it to carry into effect that article of the treaty, that the late Mini- sters projected the capture of ALEXANDRIA: ( Loud cries of hear ! hear ! J If this country had interfered at all, it should have been a- greeable to the principles of justice and com- mon policy. If this country had interfered in a disinterested manner, she might have acquir- ed the gratitude, or at least the respect of both Powers; but in the manner that the late Mi- nisters chose to manage their interference, th6y immediately involved the country in a war with TURKEY ; and so far from gaining the good will of RUSSIA by it, that Power felt a very deep resentment at our conduct upon that oc- casion, and publicly reproached us with it in the face of Europe. It ill became those who themselves perceived the necessity of interfer- ing sometimes with a Neutral rower, to set up a clamour against those Ministers for an in terference ( the Copenhagen expedition) not more decisive in its principle, but more success- ful in its retult.—( Loud cries of hear I be. r I) To send, a squadron through the Dardaneilei, without providing for its secure return, was, under all tbe circumstances of the case, an act of military madness, almost without a paral- lel. A's to the motion before the House, he should be sorry to see any resolution reflecting upon the honour of the British Flag recorded upon the Journals of the House. He should therefore move the Order of the Day. MR. WINDHAM observed, that the Right lion. Gentleman's imagination seemed to bv haunted by the transactions which took plttce at Copenhagen ; but it was in v. nn that he sougl;. to justify that atrocious attempt by the expedi- tion to the Dardanelles. He accused him of maintaining a wild sort ot combat, by argument not urfiike the movements of wii. i bears, that puzzled their pursuers. He denied that it was ever the intention of the late Admini- stration to drive TURKEY into a war.— He denied that the Expedition, either to E gypt or Constantinople, failed from any fault in the original plan of the late Ministers, but solely from the accidents of service. He re- nounced the protection which the Right Hon. Gentleman, Mr. CANNING, wished to throw over the late Administration, and would there- fore vote against the amendment. COLONEL WOOD was sorry the Right Hon. Secretary should have moved the Order of the Day, as he thought there were sufficient grounds to support the original question. It was the duty of the Representatives of the people to stigmatize the gross mismanagement and folly of any Administration, which had produced such lamentable and disastrous con- sequences. He then pointed out the folly © 1 the Expeditions. » MR. TAYLOR was heard in reply, when he insisted that whoever was Minister, it was the duty of every Independent Member of that House, to see that the resources of the coun- try were not misapplied. In the case before the House, he contended that the resources of the country had not been properly exerted. The question for the Order of the Day was put and carried without a division. The House adjourned at FIVE O'CLOCK on SATURDAY MORNING. Monday, May 23. ROMAN CATHOLICS. Mr GRATTAN presented a Petition from the Roman Catholics of Inland, pro forma, pray- i. ig for an equal participation of the privileges of the British Constitution, & c. This petition appears to be one of the largest ever presented to. this House. Mr G. Who is a very little man, With difficulty was able- to carry it across" the- House, in order to present it in the usual way. The petition is signed with a great number of signatures. Mr GRATTAN then moved, that it should 6e referred to a Committee of the whole House, General MA^ HEW also presented a very vo- • iurriinous petition from the Roman Catholic in- habitants of the county of I'iperary in Ireland in favour of the Roman Catholic petition Bill.

TRURO, May 2.—" Captain PETRE, and the brave crew of the Prince Ernest, have given a fresh proof of the spirit which jiervades the Falmouth Packets. On the 19th of March, in the Charibee Sea, Captain PF. TR E fell in with a French privateer of 10 guns and full of men, which he engaged in close action for three hours, and beat off! On the 20th, the Packet thus gallantly preserved, arrived at Jamaica. We regret to add, that this honourable success was not obtained without bloodshed. Captain PETRE and three of his brave fellows were wounded." WESTMINSTER ELECTION.— Yesterday a bout three hundred persons assembled at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, in the Strand, to celebrate the return of Sir FRANCIS BURDETT, as one of the Members of Parliament for the City of Westminster. Sir FRANCIS BURDETT took the Chair, and after the cloth was remov- ed addressed the company, standing on the table, that he might be universally heard. The; whole of his speech manifested as clearly the style of Mr HORNETOOKE as if it had actually been delivered by the latter. It consisted of the usual topics, invectives against corruption, the necessity of Parliamentary Reform, the bur- dens of taxation, the weakness of Ministers, & c. with a few obseivations against the new Indictment Bill, and the new Plan of Military Defence. We shall not attempt to follow the worthy Baronet over his seditious, if not trea- sonable harangue. We shall only observe, that the most offensive declaration he made was, that '' it is time that the Psople of Eng- land, since they cannot be saved by Ministers, 6hould. think of saving themselves." The mis- chievous t ndency of this declaration hardly need be pointed Out. It seems intended to raise a popular storm, which, if it tor a short time elevated Sir FRANCIS BURDETT and his party, would assuredly soon sweep them into ruin and oblivion. He seems not to have read the opi- nion which his favourite, BONAPARTE, has ex- pressed of the people, in bis recent letter on the affairs of SPAIN, { see page 312,) in which he speaks of the popular will and popular un- derstanding with utter contempt, thus adding insult to oppression, and defying the resent- ment of the people, while protected by his mi- litary hordes. An Irish Pedigree hunter has found out that a woman from Italy, who has lately made a great noise in this country, ( Madame CATALAN M J,) was a native of the Land of Potatoes, and that her original name was Katleen I and that she was carried to Italy when she was five years old, by TENDUCCI. It would be well if he could persuade her to stay in her own dear country, and spend there the money she has got by the gullibility of the People of ENG- LAND, SCOTLAND, and IRELAND.

" EUIWKlTM.< S- fIo From the LONDON GAZETTE, May ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, May 24, A LETTER has been received by the Hon. WILLIAM WELLESLEY POLE, from Mr JOHN KINSMAN, Commander of the Active Excise cutter, datter at Falmouth the 19th instant, stating that, on the 12th, he had captyred in the said cutter, after a chace of some hoiirs, the Deux Freres French privateer, of St. Ma- kes, armed with two carriage guns, and man- ned with 29 men. She had been out four days, and had taken two vessels, one of which was to this, he calculated upon gaming as much as speech of the CHANCELLOR, of theExpHE QUKR, on a former night, was full of erro- neous statements and illus'oiy reasoning. He had declared that com was at a high price, that a scarcity was to be apprehended, and that to prohibit the distillation would remedy the dreaded evil. All these assertions he ( Mr. COKF. J absolutely denied. Cdrn was not at a higher price than that which would afford the Farmer a fair and moderate remuneration for his iabour. There was a prospect, of an abun- dant harvest. How dangerous was it then to hold out to the public a danger which did net exist, and for which therefore there was no occasion to provide a remedy, even were the remedy proposed applicable to the case, which it was not. In support of these opinions, he referred to the Repot of the Committee, and read extracts from the minutes of the evidence given by Mr CHAMBERS, Mr ScoTr, Mr KENT, See. MrHaRtiAM said, false alarm might be dan- gerous, but false Security might be fatal. If the question were argued without passion, the interests ef both parties might be reconciled.— It was admitted that we imported to a great a- niount ( about 800,000 quarters) from the Con- tinent; and that, we were now cut off from, that source. Would not that person who should find a substitute for these 800,000 quar- ters, and that without in the smallest degree infecting the landed, which he would call the permanent interest of the country, be intitled to the thanks of the public ? ft was not ad- viseable that the prices of cor'rt should be either too high or too low. The very low prices were invariably found to produce exorbitant prices at subiequent peribds. He would agree that the landed interest should have a enume- rating price-, but though he was an old, and successful farmer, he could never ascertain in what this remunerating price was, to be. It varied in different parts of the kingdom, but where barley farms were to be let, he invaria- bly found that the landlord required double the rent which he last received. This, he supposed, was what was called , a renycnerating price, This was the; Landlord's idea . of" Remuneration; he would next shew the House what was the Farmer's. First, as it was just, he should be expected to be able to make enough to pay his rent. Next, he expected such prices as should secure him against short crops. In addition retaken by the Active, and the other by the " Betsey privateer of Plymouth. ( END OF THE CASSETTE.) PRIVATE ' CORRESPONDENCE. SCOTS CLERGY, HOUSE OF LORDS. Tuesday, May 24. THE LORD CHANCELLOR formally pro nounced the judgment of the House, ( of which he had formerly only stated the sub- stance.) See last ADVERTISER, page 333, in the Appeal from the Court of Session as Com- missioners of Teinds, the Earl of WEMYSS, against the Rev. DANIEX. M'QUEEN. The Interlocutor of the Court below, was AF- FIRMED, with a trifling variation. SCOTS APPEALS. ROXBURGH CAUSE> SECOND BRANCH. Mr. CLERK, audthe Hon. HENRYERSKINE were heard for the Appellant, being the com- petition between Brigadier- General WALTER KER and Sir JAMES NORCLIFFE INNES, Bart, on Monday. Mr. . ERSKINE was heard in continuation « n Tuesday. The Court of Session Stock bill, and the bill to prevent Child- Stealing were read a first time. In the Bill now in its progress through Par- liament, respecting the Courts ot Law in Scotland, it is stated, that additional Buildings' are necessary for the Court of Session, Justi- ciary, and for the Clerks and Officers of Court, for the Library of the Faculty of Advocates, & also for a new Prison for ihe City and County of Edinburgh. Trustees are appointed to carry those buildings into execution, and for that purpose they are to apply the fund called the " Stock of the Court of Session," amount- ing to L. 27,766, as ; far as the same lias been recovered; and after the bnildings for the Courts of Law, & c. are completed, the trus- tees are to appl& the balance remaining to- wards building the Gaol before- mentioned'. A sum arising from the Forfeited Estates was formerly ordered by Act of Parliament to be applied to the buildings for the COtfrt of Ex- CHEQUER'HOUSE OT COMMONS>. Monday, May 23. ' The Berwick new pier bill was read a third time and passedi THE DISTILLERIES. Mr CAMPBELL presented petitions from the Chamber of Commerce of the city ot Glas- gow, and from the calico printers, manufac- turers, and cotton spinners of that city, in fa- vour ofthe measure for distillation from sugar and, molasses. Petitions were also presented by Mr COKE, Admiral HE^ VEY, & C. against the measure. LORD BINNING then moved, that the Speaker should'leave the Chair. should enable him to live comfortably and genteel, in a manner much superior to his an- cestors or to the ancestors of his . landlord j and lastly, that he should be able to lay by a pro vision for his family, This was the farmer's idea of remuneration. Was it not evident from all, this that the price of land was too high, and that the profits of farmers were too high ?— While the landlords and farmers were rioting in wealth, the West India Proprietors were in a state of the greatest distress. One third of the plantations were actually under foreclosure. The supplies of clothing, provisions* & c.. for the negroes must be stepped, and the. exist- ence of the Colonies consequently endangered. Was not this a crisis worthy the interference of Parliament? But Gentlemen say, you may have any other remedy but this. Unfortunately there was no other at hand, or they might well believe the West India interests would not press for this particular measure,. The distresses of the West India interests would admit of no delay. They must be instantly relieved, or somfe great convulsion would ensue. They had the strongest claim* upon tue gratitude of the country; they contributed to its wealth— to its revenue; they consumed its manufactures, they supported its navigation, and what did they ask in return ? Why, a market for their produce. This was the com- pact between the Colonies and the Mother Country, and that was denied to them. The annual importation of sugar was about 290, QQO hogsheads, of which 200,000 might, be con- sumed in Great Britain and Ireland. There Was therefore a eurplus ot 90,000 hogshead:, for which, by the acts of the Government, there was t? o vent., Instead 6f facilitatinj; its exportation, they forced the sugafr. of all the world into England-. This, in the course - of the Ittift year, amounted to no" less than sixty thousand hogsheads. Was it to be expected that the West- India proprietors could bear up against these accumulated disadvantages I Mr ROSE would wish the House to take up this question Upon' a much wider ground than the Hon.- Gentlemah who opposed it seemed to do. That the iVe'st India Planters had made but their case nobody who read the Re- port could deny, . It appeared from that that, several estates in Janiaica - has} been abandon- ed, and that others were ! iM| r- to fie abandon- ed, unless some relief were afforded to the Co- lonial trade. It should not be forgotten that the West'lndiil^ possessions of this country yielded an income bf between eight and nine millions, spent in this, country, that the Re- venue in Customs, Excise, See. on West India produee-? amounted to ^ five. millions and a half annually )' thus the West Indian 1. rade employ- ed one- third of the shipping of the country, and that British manufactures to the amount of MR COKE could not let pass this opportuni- si* millions were consumed in the West Indian ty of opposing a mea- Sure which was fraught1 market. A provision to prohibit she distilla- ror 1 tion, till barley should sink to any given price, and then to allow it to be used in distilleries till it rose to a certain price, would be consi dered as a sufficient security fOr the interests of the Landed Gentlemen, and induce them to acquicsce in the measure. This was their best mode of relieving the West India merchants, whom every body allowed to be in a situation requiring relief. About 400,000 quarters of malt were consumed in the distilleries, and three millions and a half in the breweries, and Jif it Were not for the ' improvement in science, the quantity of ba* ley consumed in the distille- ries would be double what it is. It appeared that this country imported to the amount of 700,000 quarters of corn annually ; and though he thanked God that he had no apprehensions of a scarcity, yet lie thought they ought to be apprehensive of the rise that might take place in the price of bread. He concluded, with ex- pressing a hope that the measure, in. the guard- ed shape he suggested, would be acceded to. SIR W; W. WYNNE allowed the distress of the West India Planters and Merchants, and. would be glad to give them relief in any other way than this. He had suggested for that pur- pose a reduction of the duty on such Sugar as should be employed in the feeding of cattfe.- But whilst he was anxious to afford re- lief tothe West ladies, he could not consent to such a measure as the present, which would press exclusively on the Landed interest.— Why had the. measure been brought forward at die present moment, when the distilleries would of course oease working till October! The present price of barley was not extraor- dinary, considering the shortness of the last crop. For these reasons he should oppose the Speaker's leaving the Chair. THE SOLICITOR- GENERAL OF SCOTLAND said, when he cast his eye on the report, and recollected the facts by which it was substan- tiated* he could not help thinking it was a mea- sure of prudence to stop the distillation of corn for a time. He knew, from private and indisputable evidence, that grain was very scarce in Scotland; and when he considered ' his, and considered also, that our annual im- portation of corn, amounting to 800,000 quar- ters, was now no more to be expected, he would give his support to any measure by which he thought our domestic produce was likely to be preserved. He thought it would Be a . measure of prudence to stop the Distilla- tion from Grain, not merely from the begin- ning of July, as had been proposed by die Noble Lord, but, if possible from the begmniiag of June. This opinion he had formed some months ago, altogether, independent of the present situation of tiie West India Planters.— lie should therefore betray the duty he owed to the. country, if he- did not vote for the pre- sent measure. SIR- HENRY MILDMAY maintained tliatthe present measure was calculated to injure the Landed Interest, and could not be beneficial to the country. It was calculated to unhinge and unsettle our agricultural connections. MR., ROBERT DUNDAS concurred in the ge- neral principle as to the propriety of not in- terfering with, the corn laws,. ah interference which could not be productive of any benefi- cial consequence! But, at the same time, he must alfow that there - were extreme cases, in which it would.. be necessary^ o resort to such interference. The question therefore was, whether the present circumstances of this Coun- try w- ere such as to consti/ ute a case of that description. The late cropa of barley and oats had been short, but not. the . Crop , df wheat.— Though there were no danger of scarcity at present, yet they ought. tb lock to the. iatar- e,, and in the event - of a short . crop this Season, they would. not, be justified ici tiot leaving to the Executive Government, thepower of giving to the public consumption that amount. ot cbrfi which was consumed . in the distilleries. He did not agree either with those who supported this as a colonial- measure, or with those who defended., it on the . score of existing or appre- hended scarcity, but with a view to the great national interests which it was calculated to promote. WHI- TARFAO compared the cry df scar- city raised at present to the cry. of the Church being in danger, raised in the same Quarter on a former occasion. He adverted to the folly of all. lhe schemes of relief suggested in'( Parlia- ment in the former scarcity, the brown bread, aid- th? Lords giving up their tarts. The in- terference of Parliament in such cases would always be marked with the. same folly and the same inutility. MR. WILBF. RFORCE defended the measure as a matter of precaution. It was not neces- sary that ^ scarcity - should exist " to justify the adoption of such measures under the present circumstances. When all the sources of fo- reign relief were stopped up, it was necessary to be on our guard much earlier than if these soarces were open. He was gl^ J that the nfeasiire . afforded1 the meanc of incidental re- lief to the West India Merchants, whom he thought' intitjed to the consideration of the House on every" ground, and to- his considera- tion, . particularly on account of the injury he may be erroneously supposed to have done them,, in bringing forward the Abolition ofthe Slave Trade. He could not he! j observing, ot ^ _ 34: that though this qflestioj was studiously di; claimed as a party question by the Hon. Gen- tleman opposite, the argument connecting it with certain supposed proceedings on the Ca- tholic Question, gave some ground for the im- putation. LORD BINNING mnde a short reply. The House then divided for the^ Speaker'- leaving the Chair, Ayes ICS— Noc's 127— Majority 35;, The" three Resolutions were read pro form.', with an understanding that the first two should be recommitted on Friday next The House adjourned at T\ vo O'CLOCX or.

These particulars will no doubt, be attended to by the Commissioners to be appointed to examine in what additional cases Jury Trials are to be introduced into Scotland. Two circumstances are particularly to be at- tended to.— In ENGLAND, Juries are obliged to be unanimous, by which, Jurymen frequent- ly perjure themselves by giving a verdict con- trary to their consciences.— Secondly, by a fiction of Law, - ( as Sir SAMUEL ROMILLV states, see page 340,) Jurymen give in ver- dicts upon oath, stating, the value of articles for which criminals are indicted, at much Jess than their real value— and thus, says Sir SA- MUEL RPMILY, " Jurymen are brought or, the most solemn occasions to trifle with their con- sciences I" Notwithstanding the Great Boon, said to bfe promised to SCOTLAND, by assimilating the Laws of SCOTLAND to the Laws bf ENGLAND ; when we observe the defect of the LAWS cf ENGLAND, as stated by Sir SAMUEL ROMILY, and the English Lawyers themselves— andjwhen we " consider the superiority of the LAW of SCOTLAND, in several particular many persens may perhaps think, we are as will as we are and adopt the maxim—" Noluimn Leges SCOTI/ E ? riutare."

" Our duty has been very arduous for some time past, on accbtint of the Plunderers of the Continent drawing near our Quarter. We have been making great preparations to receive theih as they deserve— and come when they will, I have not thii least doubt, but we shall soon make them wish they had never come, < jven to look at us.

Captain BETTKSWORTH, who was killed oil board the Tartar frigate off the coast of Nor- way, as mentioned in last ADVERTISER, had often distinguished himself by his gallant con- duct on former occasions, , and was severely wounded in the West Indies some years ago. He was the officer who, when Commander of the Curieux. brig, brought the dispatches from Lord KELSON, when in pursuit of the combin- ed fleet in the West Indies in 1805; on which occasion' Lord BARHAM, then First Lord of the Admiralty, immediately promoted him to the rank of Post Captain.

THE EDINBURGH ADVERTISER for i8o3. REVOLUTION IN SPAIN. In last ADVERTISER, page 333, we gave the important intelligence of a new REVOLUTION IN SPAIN. BONAPARTE, - who played the sati against the father, has now turned off the son to re: tore the father ; and the sceptre has pas- ted away from the- feeble FERDINAND, after he But BONAPARTE having declared his determi- nation to subjugate the country, it has become more imperiously necessary for tis to turn cur thoughts to SOUTH AMERICA, and to sever | that territory from the power of SPAIN by de- j claring it Independent.

If we take a view of the late events that have occirrred, we can have no doubt of BONAPAR- TE being ,1t' the bottom of the whole. The PRINCE of PEACE was his tool, and dissension vras through his means introduced into the Royal Family. BONAPARTE interferes to heal it; and hence completes his ascendancy over fhe different parties. Troops are then intro- duced, and no one dared oppose the measure through fear of disobliging him, MAY 27. Highness may never feel this by your own ex- - CAFTUBE ' OF A CAOTSH PRIVATEER, pei ience.

If they form treaties of al- liance, like the King of SPAIN, they will be dethroned by their Ally; if they remain in friendly neutrality like PORTUGAL, they will be'driven to seek an afiylum in some distant region beyond the reach of the scourge of Europe ; if they desire to paTtake of the spolia- tions promised by FRANCE, they will, like the King of DENMARK, be first insulted by a French General, and they will become ulti- mately oppressed and aggrieved vassals. It is the King of SWEDEN alone who holds out the example worthy " of imitation ; such as the proud may follow, and the brave imitate. If lie succeed, his success may cause an ebb in the moral inundation which has spread over so large a portion of Europe; and even if he falls without the loss of honour or the relaxation of his constancy, he will leave for posterity a brilliant name, which the free and bold of all succeeding times will preserve with fondness, and pronounce with admiration. The kingdom of SPAIN has now become a Province of France. BONAPARTE has contrived to induce KING CHARLES and the PRINCE of ASTURIAS not only to submit their respective claims to his decision, but to trust their per- sons into his power; and from that power they will never escape 1 The whole race ol the BOURBONS must be destroyed. While the streets of the Metropolis of ' SfaTri were streaming with the blood of its inhabi- tants, MURAT insulted the survivors by in- forming them that " the soldiers of NAPOLE- ON were only friendly Troops, only faithful Al- lies The Monsieur in giving an account of these dreadful massacres, says, " Thirty discharges of artillery with grap> e- shot, wrth several charges of cavalry, cleared al) the streets.; af- ter this the insurgents took refuge in the houses,, and began to fire from the windows.

A gteat number ot peasants from the neighbouring villages were summoned into the city before the grand attempt; but when they saw - how speedily the insurrection v- as put down, they endeavoured to escape to the coun- try ; - but they were watched by the cavalry, at the different outlets of the city, and all taken with arms in their hands - were fhot.

' " The Junto, or Government Council, im- mediately gave orders for disarming the whole city; all good citizens rejoice at this regula- tion, and view with pleasure the punishment of those insurgents, who, had it not been for t^ presence of the French, would, by overturning the. Throne of the late King of SPAIN, have n. iifiliated the Kingdom, and have plunged this brave Nation into a state of long decay." The following ,- hypocritical Letter was written by BONAPARTE to the Prince of ASTURIAS : Letter of his Majesty the EMPEROR to the ,• PRINCE of ASTURIAS.

The people then felt the shame • and- disgrace cf being treated a? a conquered • xountry Ly their Allies— who, BONAPARTE de- clared, he sent to protect them—- the people were the patriots who wished to rescue the country, but there was no patriotism on the part of the PRINCE of ASTURIAS and his par- ty.— The entrance of French troops excited no dissatisfaction in them— on the contrary, they seemed to think that t'. ie presence of these troops afforded them the most favourable op- portunity for cementing and confirming their power. Of the disturbances at Madrid and in other' parts of Spain, we have only the French ac- counts. It is clear from them, that the popular discontent was inflamed by the French, for the purpose of giving them an opportunity of re- ducing the capital to a state of complete sub- mission, and of adopting measures which they co, ild not otherwise have adopted.— Spain could net be treated as a conquered country until a pretext had been afforded by some hos t ie acts against the French troops, which hostile acts have been prompted and insti- gated by the French themselves.— Two lines in BO. NAPARTE-' S Letter to the Prince of ASTU- KIAS, diree weeks before these disturbances, convey a volume of information—" A few of • my soldiers may be murdered, but the subju- gation of Spain shall be the consequence of it" — But at the time that Letter was written, no disturbances had taken place.— BONAPARTE however had determined that distwbances should., and tiien the consequence ensues which . he predicted. Look at the account given of these disturbances in the Moniteur— what hor- rid atrocities ! what cold- blooded butchery J what a determinatian to carry^ on the work of vengeance with all possible fury !— The crisis was foresesn, say the French— Yes, yes, they .'^ foresaw tt, because they had, prepared it— and they saw it, they tell us, " with pleasure, for a severe lesson was necessary to bring back the , people to reason."— To reason !—* to that sub- mission which slave's pay to tyrants who have the whips of torture in their liands I—" Thirty . discharges' of artillery, with grape shot, and cavalry, cleared f// the Streets:!"

At Toledo similar disturbances took plade; The moment these accounts reach BAYOKN E, TSRDINANP is forced to resign his Crown to; ! hLs father; but little is said with respect to the father, except that he and his Queen and the PRINCE of PEACE are to go to- Fontainblean, and the PRINCE of ASTURIAS to be sent to Valany, an estate in France belonging to CAMBACERES. In France . thpy will be kept, - whilst MURAT governs SPAIN with al! the powers of a ' King, though with the title only . of Lieuteaant General, tiii BONAPARTE shall have declared that SPAIN is a conquered coun- n'amely, that the PRINCE of PEACE should be banished from SPAIN, and I should invite him to a place of retirement in France. Your Royal Highness was much to blame; I have no need of any other proof of this, than the letter which yon wrote to me. Your Royal Highness must distrust ail popular commotions and insurrections. A few Of my soldiers may be murder el, but the subjugation cf Spain shall be the consequence, of it. You perceive that I hare touched slightly upon many points, which it would not be proper to enlarge on. You may rely upon my desire to arrange every thing, and of finding an opportunity of giving proof of my. perfect rsgard and esteem, " BAYONNE, April 1G." We are assured that the King and Queen of SPAIN, the'Queen of ETRURIA, the Infanta, Don FRANCISCO, and the PRINCE of PEACE, are expected at the Palace of Fontainbleau by the 20th of this month. The Prince, of AS- TURIAS will in about two or three days arrive at tbe estate of Valancy, which belongs to his Highness the GRAND ELECTCR.—{ Moniteur, May 13.) BONAPARTE no doubt foresaw several ' months ago, the present Revolutions and In- surrections in SPAIN ; and he took care to make, the poor silly Old King send all the Spanish Troops to Hanover and Germany, that his scheme of making SPAIN a PROVINCE of FRANCE, might be less dangerous anrjl difficult. Insurrections have taken place in other places of Spain, and every Spaniard found in arms, was instantly put to death t Several thousand SPANIARDS have been massacred by their dear Allies, whom BONAPARTE, sent to protect them 1 Almost every . province in SPAIN is in a state of insurrection. French troops are, however, advancing in al! directions, and part of the ar- my of PORTUGAL has crossed the SPANISH frontier. Notwithstanding the daily massacres in Spain, Portugal, Hamburgh, and evei" y coun- try where the French have entered, yet we s: re rhe Roscois of this and other Nations, ad- vocating the cause of BONAPARTE and the FRENCH ! It is by adopting such pusillani- mous sentiments that the Nations of EUROPE have tamely submitted to the iron yoke of the Corsican ! DUTCH PAPERS to the 21st inst. are received. They tend very strongly to confirm the opinion we have always expressed, viz. that the BOUR- BONS will very soon cease to reign in Spain, and that that Kingdom'will be either united to France, or be placed under the dominion of one of the BONAPARTE family. The follow- ing sentence, which is contained in a pretended arttcle from Toledo, indicates pretty strongly BBNAPARTE'S intentions upon the subject:— " The security of SPAIN requires that she; should be'united to FRANCE by bonds far ? nore strict than treaties. She must retain her pos- sessions untouched, and her Monarchy entire— honour and eternal gratitude to him who shall effect this!" The'bonds by'which the FREN c H RULER unites other countries to FRANCE are perfectly well known on the Continent— they imply absolute power on the one hand, and implicit submission on the other— they are not only s- tronger than treaties, but supersede the necessity of them. The Moniteur contains a journal of Admiral GANTHEAUME'S expedition. CORFU is stated to have been supplied with provisions for two years.

Wednesday there was transmitted from the Committee of Bills, a Petition from JOHN FRASER and others, for an Gaelic & Eng- lish chapel of ease within the bounds of the city of Edinburgh. The Assembly unani- mously agreed to remit the petition to the Pres- bytery of Edinburgh, tbat they may proceed therein according to the regulations prescribed by the act of Assembly 1798. And, in res- pect of the particular circumstances of the case, they allow the Presbytery to report the case to the Commission in August or November, who are authorised to receive the same, and to give directions according to the rules of the Church. Yesterday the Assembly proceeded to the consideration of the Overture respecting the Ordination of Persons to Chapels of Ease, and Missions, within the bounds of the Church.— The Assembly, deeplv impressed with a sense of the importance of the object of the overture, and convinced that the Presbyteries will, upon all occasions, exercise the powers with which they are invested, 111 guarding against the evils which are necessarily connected with what has been called Ministerium Vagum, judge it suf- ficient to recommend the Presbyteries to be vigilant when they set apart persons to the Of- fice of the Ministry, in observing the Standing Laws of die Church. The Magistrates have passed an act of Coun- cil, authorising a collection to be made at the doors of the different churches in this city tor the Public Dispensary, on Sunday the 12th of June next. The petition of the Managers, & c. shall be given next week. The, sum of L. 540. has been paid at twenty different times, to thirty three mothers and widows, with 58 children, of the seamen, who perished near Aberdeen, in the storm in January 1800; a circumstance which reflects great cre- dit on the benevolence of the Public.

In Morpeth market,' on Wednesday, there was a great shew of Cattle, many of which were for keeping; those fat maintained full last week's prices, and a great many of them lean Cattle were sold, the grass being plentiful.

At Greenlaw Fair, on Monday last, there was but a small shew of cattle; young cows, in good condition, much in demand, and pri- ces a good deal higher than of late. On Wednesday morning, a boat arrived with fresh herrings at .' lie Broomielaw, - being the first this season. The number being small, they sold at 4d. a piece. 0 » Tuesday night, or early cn Wednesday morning, a considerable number of early cab- bage plants were stolen from a kitchen garden near Newhaven-, and in looking over the ground, the marks of uncommonly large, and smaller footsteps were traced, from which it seems that the robbery bad been committed by two persons, one a very big, and the other a middle- sized man,- Carriers arid others who may have purchased plants from such a descrip- tion of people, should give information to the Magistrates, as if a speedy check is net given to such depredations,- industrious individuals will not only suffer considerably, but the com* munity at large will sustain great- injury from the . subsequent scarcity, when plants are with diffi- culty procured- About a week ago, similar depredations were committed on the same pro- perty, and the traces of footsteps were seen in the different gardens in the neighbourhood.
