GENERAL HUE And cry The NeWcASTLE CoUrANt Saturday and Sunday's Posts. LONDON, July 8 and 9. aCcording to our last advices from Smyrna, the plague rages so much there, that the streets were strewed with dead bodies, the few surviving in- habitants having left the city. they write from Paris, that the King has of- ered himself as an Umpire between the Emperor and Hol- land, to bring their disputes to an amicable determination. The Emperor, however, rejects all arbitration, and perse- veres in his demands upon their High mightinesses, alledging it ai a matter of right, and a point of justice which nego- tiation cannot palliate, nor national equity refuse. A number of experiments have been made in the course of these few months, by order of the French Government, in Count Buffon's iron forges, and alio in the royal manu- factory at Heronville, in order to ascertain whether French and English iron" is convertible into steel by the process of cementation. These experiments have succeeded beyond expectation; and have received the approbation ot the Royal Academy of Sciences. The object of them is very important to us as well as to the French, as at present the best iron for the purpose of making steel comes from Sweden. The alliance is drawing still closer between Spain and Portugal. The latter has agreed to send a small squadrOn, consisting of one ship of 64 guns and three frigates, to'co- operate with the Spanish fleet in the blockade of Algiers. When the last ships arrived from India left Bengal, Mrs Hastings and family were preparing for europe, and had taken a ship for that purpose. The price agreed to be g-. vtn is 13,000). An entire change has taken place, not only in the uni- form but in the arms of our cavalry : Their dreaaed cloath- ing in blue. faced with different colours; their carbines are in future to be loaded at the breech like rifle- guns;. with a bayonet much longer than that used by our Infantry. It appears from a fair calculation . of the different bonus's given by lord North during the American war, that he, distubuted at least five millons in douceurs to his friends. The Committee of Privy Council that have been fitting from time to time these six months past upon the formation of the new colony in North America, having compleated their business, no longer exist as a Committee, A com mission for the Governor, and regulations, with instructions about the granting of lands, are all pre- paring with 1 be utmost dispatch. The new government lies upon the North of the Bay of Fundy, and extends West- ward to an immense distance The Committee recommen- ded that the island of. St John's should be added to the New Colony, as a saving to Government would accrue from a reduction of its present establishment; it was also recom- mended that the office of Governor of St John's should be abolished, and a Lieutenant Governor only appointed, who should be under the controul of the Governor. of New Brunswick, as also the establishment at Cape ' Breton — These regulations are all to be carried into execution. One of the articles of instruction to'the Governor does great, honor to those who suggested it. The lands that are not yet under grant are to be surveyed, aud marked in portions from one hundred to five hundred acres, the largest quan- tity that is to be given- to' any one man. Such of the; loyalists as apply for lands are to make proof of the pro- perty they possessed before tlie trouble's in America com- menced- This is done to ascertain the degree of recompence they have a right to claim, allowing for such as have large families to provide for. Most of the other regulations are equally just and tend as much, as possible to prevent im- proper partialities iti the distribution ot the land., Dr Franklin is not in this metropolis, as mentioned, i, n the papers, but dangerously ill at Paris of a nephritic com: plaint, for which the faculty have adviaed au operation. The plan laid before the minister for a regulation in the Post- Office respecting the carriage of letters, is not at pre- sent to be carried into execution upon so extensive a scale as was at first proposed. The experiment will be made up- 011 the great Western road. The reason why it is not ex-; tended arises from some objections made to the scheme by several merchants in the city, who say, that as the busineSs upon ' Change is not finished until three ' o'clock, and the letters by the new regulation must be delivered before nine o'ciock in the evening, time sufficient is not allow'ed for1 them to dine and answer their correspondents. ' It may be depended on as a fact, that a certain member of the coalition is no longer honoured with closer confe- rences at Carleton house. A certain young Gentleman has discovered that it is neither to his honour or interest longer to be made the dupe of disappointed ambition. It is remarkable, that four prelates now living. & re1, or have been, Biiliops Litchfield, viz. Bishops Egerson, North, Hurd, and Cornwallis. ' A letter from Swaffham, dated the sth instant, says, that their wheat will be ready to cut in ten days; that they; never had a finer crop. H OUSE of C OM MONs, July 6. MAJOR Scott moved, That there be laid before this House an account of the Supplies sent from Bengal to Madras Agreed to. -' Mr Pitt being called upon by- the Speaker, rose, and there was a general silence throughout the House. The oc- casion was certainly great. There Is not, in the history of the world, an instance of any nation dictating laws for the government of such extensive and populous territories as the kingdoms subject to the power of Great Britain in India! . Mr Pitt modestly expressed the very great anxiety which he naturally felt, when he was called upon to propose new regulations on a subject so intricate and so important" as that which the order of this day had brought before them. India was the chief resource to which we could look for restoring and confirming the credit and the strength of our diminished empire: it was a source of' commerce, the parent of national wealth, the grand support of na- tional greatness. But what of all other considerations was the nearest and the molt affecting, the decisions of the legisliture with regard to India might materially affect the British conffitufion. Mr Pitt then adverted to the great difficulty of uniting in one system all possible advantages, and avoiding all disadvantages. He also observed, that at first glance, it was absurd to suppose, that such extended dominions as we possessed in the East, could be properly governed by a company of merchants. The East India Company, with whose prosperity the interest of the nation was intimately conneaed, had risen to their present opulence and greatness by commerce. It was the commerce wiih India that was therefore to be held as the object of the first importance, and to which inferior objeas, it they couid not be reconciled, mult Be facrificed. In forming a system for the regulation of India affairs, they ought, as much as possible, to have respect to the chartered rights of the Company ; who were better qualified than any Other set of men, to manage their own commercial concerns. But, in the course of things, betides commercial advan- tages, we had gained great territorial propeity, and it was reasonable that Government should have a part of what their arms had fo great a share in acquiring And, as the commercial concerns should be left in the hands of the Company, fo political matters should be committed to other hands. It would accordingly be the business of the bill he fliould move this evening to determine, r. Into what hands the political or civil affairs of the British pof- feflions in India fhould be entrusted. 1. What should be the extent of that power that should be consided to them. And, 3. By what means the obedience of the persons to whom such a trust should be committed, was to be enforced : by what means they were to he checked, and controlled ; and by what rendered responsible for their aaions, and punishable for their delinquencies. And firft, with regard to the hands in which the government of India fliould be entrusted, there was an enquiry which met him on the very threshold of this business, namely, whether the delegated power for governiug India fhould be permanent or tem- porary. Here he was aware that he fliould differ in opinion from some of his friends, who, although they disapproved M another bill on other accounts, yet applaud it with reg'ard to that permanency which it bestowed on the seven Com missioners. But that was a permanency, he observed, unknown to the Constitution. He was for no permanency that did not depend on good behaviour. The principle that gave permanency, of another kind, was inconsistent with the spirit of the british government. Having wholly reprobated the idea of permanency, he proceeded to enquire in what hands the government of' In- dia might he most safely lodged, . On this subject I was going to say, that it should be lodged any where but with the executive government. But, on reflection, I must af- firm, that it would be equally dangerous to place it in the hands of any body,, or political party of men whatever, who might make it an engine for raising their power above the other branches of government. The government of our political affairs in- the East, he was clearly of opinion ought to be committed to. men who should be responsible for their conduct: And the nomination 0f those men, he thought should be vested, analogously, to the whole of our Civil Constitution," in Crown. He was aware that Gentlemen; whom he had in his eye, would plead that the influence which was taken from the seventeen Commission- ers would, by the present bill, be added to the . Crown. In general, Mr Pitt assured the House, that the bill had provided with great care against that objection. He allowed that the Commander in Chief was to be ap- pointed by the Crown, but that officer, as well as those in subordinition to him, were to be directed and restrained by the bill, as that they should not enjoy any unbounded patronage nor the servants of the Crown by their means. He now explained: his meaningf more particularly than he had done, concerning the persons who should be entrusted .. with the controul and regulation of India affairs in genera!; and still was of opinion that eight Directors, appointed by the Company; should, in ordinary cases, transmit orders, and carry 011 the government of India, their dispatches being subject- the revision and veto of Commissioners, to be appointed by the Crown. But the Bill enacted, more- over, that the Commissioners, or Board appointed by the Crown should be at liberty, on extraordinary occasions, to transmit orders, without the privity or previous content of the eight assistant Commissioners although these were, in all cases to be made acquainted with whatever related to affairs of commerce. A Secretary too for India affairs was to be appointed; an office which required the happiest union of ability, integrity, and industry. The Board to be appointed for India affairs might be made up of men who filled honourable and lucrative stations iu ' government, but who. Were not put to: any great trouble in fulfilling the duties of them. Thus an expence would be saved to ' government, and, at the same time the necessity of filling those honorary and profitable departments with men of abilities and activity, would give strength and efficacy to Ministry in general. Having thus stated the hands to whom the controul of India affairs was to be committed, Mr Pitt entered upon the second thing proposed, which to define the extent of the power with which they were to be entrusted. They were not only .. to put a stop to whatever measures they might deem improper, but to suggest and forward such as might seem proper and necessary. They were not only to have a controuling, but a superintending and a directing power. They were to take care peace should be the system that should prevail in our settlements in India; that the interests and passions of individuals should not . predo- minate over, the interest of the public; that no war should be entered into through ambition, or the love ot conquest ; that the bounds of the British empire in the east should not be enlarged'. The Commander in Chief, with the other great. Officers in our Asiatic dominions, might indeed wage • war in self- defence, or in Order to ward off an impending calamity; but they were to send home the earliest intelli- gence of such necessity, and in all cases to be responsible for their conduct, and to take upon themselves the proof of that necessity which constrained them to depart, on the spot, from orders from Britain- The' new regulations were to comprehend the native Princes of India, as they stood with relation to the East India Company, and as they stood with relation to each other. The nature of the claims of ihe Company Were to be considered, and the ability to satisfy them investigated The disputes too between the Nabob of Arcot and the Rajah ot Tanjore were to be set- tled. It would be impossible to clear up all the- matters, in dispute between the Eaft India Company and the Zemin-, dars, or landholders, in a summary manner,- indiscrimi- nate resumptions,' which had been proposed in a former ( mr Fox's) bill, would be as iniquitous as indiscriminate- confiscations. ' All that . could be done for the landholders, would be,' fo extend to them in as high a degree as their local and moral situation would admit", the free genius and protection ot this country. A reasonable tribute would be imposed, security given, that it would - not be increased. The Government of India would be Amplified. Greater oeconomy- would be introduced : And on the whole, they would, in the process of time, be reduced within the nearest possible limits, whatever these limits should be found to be. The servants of the Company, in India, would , be appointed according to certain laws of gradation and succession : and all the proceedings, with regard to these, as well as other matter's, registered, that an appeal might be made, in case of any injury sustained to the justice of this country. But ' these, and. all other laws, must prove vain and inefficacious, unless theit authority were maintained by proper sanctions. Mr Pitt-, therefore, proceeded to the consideration of the third object of the Bill, namely, to controul the servants ot the Company in India, as well as of the Directors of their affairs at home, and to render the whole of them obedient and subservient to the will of the Legislature. ' He pro- tested, that he was most inviolably attached to that palladium of English liberty, that security which every man felt in his person and property, in a trial by jury, and according to the - written letter of the law. But in certain cases, the Le- gislature of the country, for wise purpofes-, had allowed trials of another, and a more summary kind, aud such as was suited to the exigences of the State; Such a species of trial it would be expedient to institute for delinquents from India. He proposed to erect a tribunal severe in its investi- gations, and- prompt and vigorous in its decisions : a tri- bunal that shoujd be determined, not by the usual forms of written law, but by evidence as would be esteemed good in common law, and as the nature of the case should admit. He added, that men, he hoped, would be found patri- otic enough to forego, for a time, the privilege of a trial by written law and by jury, for the sake of being, instru- mental in carrying on a plan with regard to India full of humanity: a nobler field, he said, had never been opened for the generosity and heroism of mankind. But on the subject of the new tribunal he proposed to erect, he pro- fessed a willingness, and a sincere desire, to hearken to and adopt any prudent hints that might be suggested. He also suggested, that it might be proper . to allow of certain interrogatories to'be put to accused persons from India, concerning the extent of the fortunes they had brought home with them, as that circumstance might be necessary to be known, in order to ascertain the quantum of their punishment, which was either by fine or imprisonment, or both. He would submit it to the Committee, to the con- sideration of the House, whether it might not be proper, " rather than to oblige delinquents, or such as were accused of delinquency, to give an account of their whole fortune they had made in India, to specify a certain sum which they were to swear, under the severest penalty, that their fortune did not exceed. He said farther, that his bill would take cognizance of all delinquencies committed by British subjects in any part of the Continent of India.; so that there would be no opportunity of committing enor- mities in the dominions of any of the native Princes; and pleading afterwards, in bars of punishment, that they were not committed within the territories of Great Britain. Nor would his bill permit the servants of the Company to accept any presents from the natives of Hindostan, be- yond a small limited amount; aud such presents to be reported, and registered in the records of the Company. That the bill allowed of any presents at all was in confor- J mity to the customs of Asia, where, without presents, no- | thing was transacted The Bill also provided, that no person who had been once in India, and who had remained a certain number of years at home, since his return from thence, should be sent back thither, in any office under Government, or the East- India Company. Mr Pitt pressed upon the notice of the House, that the Bill provided for, the security of obedience on the part - of all to he concerned in ihe government of the civil, military, and maritime affair, of the East- India Company, by every thing that would de- termine and regulate the moral conduct of man; character, conscience, duty, and a regard to all the obligations that are held the most dear and sacred amongst mankind, and moved for leave to bring it into the House. Mr Fox did not then mean to enter into any debate on the subject at present. He would satisfy himself with ob- serving,. that many parts of the intended Bill,, for the regu- lation of India, were imperfect, and inadequate to - the ends for which they were intended.- The last part of the bill, relative to the punishment of delinquents, he highly applauded; but the other parts were so diametrically oppo- site to his ideas of reform, and indeed fo diametrically op- posite to that system of policy, which had been approved and adopted by the last Parliament, but which, for Certain reasons, had been rejected in the Houfe of Lords, that he thought it a duty incumbent on him to oppose it. He alledged, that it would be subVersive of the Constitution in the first place, and detrimental to the- interest of the East India Company in the second. he wished to know the plan, whether or not it was to include commercial and ter- ritorial regulations in one bill, or form them into separate bills; and, above all, he wished to be informed when Mr Pitt intended to have it read a first and second time, as he would then make his objections. Mr Pitt answered, that it was his intention to make one Bill serve for both the commercial and territorial regula- tions, as he imagined it would be sufficient for every pur- pose requisite; and that . he intended that the first reading of the Bill should be on Friday next, and the second very early next week. The motion fo » bringing in the bill was then put and agreed to; after which the HOuse adjourned. Lord Galway reported, that his Majesty had been waited on with their address of yesterday, relative to the famine in Shetland;, and his Majesty, would give directions as desired. . Passed the Insolvent Bill. 1 A conversation now took place between Mr Sheridan and the Chancellor, in consequence of the former asking the latter when the smuggling bill would be brought iu. Mr Sheridan hoped it would be understood, that Mr Pitt was not intitled to credit for originality in the plan for the suppression of smuggling; for that measure was not only in contemplation, but actually in forwardness during the administration of Lord John Cavendish; but he must vin- dicate that administration from the opprobrium ot ever having it in idea to establish an oppressive window tax as a commutation of the duties on tea.' ' Mr Pitt rose. with warmth to defend himself, when the Speaker interposed, saying, that it was a duty he owed the House, to stop such disorderly proceedings," and Gentlemen would be supporting their own rights, in supporting him in his endeavours to enforce the rules of Parliament, Mr Pitt, Mr Sheridan, and Mr Eden each attempted to speak, but " Chair,' Chair" echoing from every quarter, the Speaker resumed, saying it was - very disagreeable to him to. be under the necessity of interfering On occasions like the present'. TO ask questions relating to - the bringing in of bills was an indulgence, which; when confined within pro- per limits, Could be productive of uo harm, - but, on the contrary, ' might conduce to facilitate the prOgress of public business; but he could not sit in that chair, to hear gentle- men engage in arguments and controvercies, when no que- stion was before the House.

LONDON July 9 and 10. Accounts from Vienna mention, that the Emperor is con tinually giving proofs of his moderation wiih respeCt to the differences between the protestants and the Catholicks. Last month his Imperial Majesty appointed Mr Deimed ( the Advocate) to be inspeCtor of books at Ratisbon. Upon this the Chancellor of Mentz protested, on account of that Lawyer being a Lutheran. The Emperor immediately re- turned the remonstrance, having added the following words at the bottom.- " According to the treaty of Westphalia, every kind of religion has an equal right in the Roman Em- pire and it becomes me to see all treaties preserved invio- lable. ( Signed) JOSEPH." Those who pretend that nothing can terrify from com- mitting crimes, but the aspcCt of the gibbet or the wheel, have not seen the spectacle the inhabitants of Buda were witnesses to a few days ago. The Emperor has never given greater proofs of his wisdom than in the reform ot his criminal laws. By letting the malefactors live, whom be has found means to render useful, he has instituted chal- tisements more dreadful, perhaps, and more capable of making an impression if not stronger, at least more durable and efficacious. There has just arrived in a kind of open gallery, a troop Of malefactors, condemned to the public works, such as drawing along the Danube and the Save the ships distined for Peterwaradin. They are distinguished by the following uniform; they wear a long garment 01 white woollen cloth, to which is fastened a cap in the form of a friar's cowl. They have an iron collar about their necks, from which two chains hang down TO their feet, and serve to pinion them. Their heads are shaved; bread and water is their sole sustenance: they have one gros per day for their maintenance. It is pretended there are among them some persons of elevated rank. There are shewn in the troop several comedians, some valets de chambre, an apothecary, an adjutant, and two Jews. The Prince of Wales has perfectly recovered his late ill- ness, and went yesterday by water to Richmond, where he dined with . the Duke of Montague, who gave an elegant entertainment to the Nobility, foreign Ambassadors; & c. The King has appointed Lieut. Col. Carleton to be Gover- nor of New Brunswick, he kissed his Majelty's hand yester- day on the occasion: as did Major Dubares, on his appoint- ment to be Lieut. Governor of Cape Breton. Earl Mansfield has not, nor does he intend to preside as judge at any of the sittings; and it is expeCted his Lordship will resign as Chief Justice, previous to the ensuing term. Earl Temple is certainly to be created Duke or Bucking- ham immediately after the prorogation of Parliament. The proposition which the Directors, of the India Com- pany have made to the Minister is to equalize the Excise duties on tea at 10s. percent, to which the Tea dealers propose a tax on the Trade; which will be a means not only of confining it to proper persons, but will also more effectually check smuggling, by reducing the prices of tea 16 low as te take off that most powerful incentive cheapness. It is rumoured that a Bill in Chancery is filed against a merchant and an Attorney for making an illiterate man drunk, and procuring an assignmeut from him of a very va- luable estate in Cornwall, without any consideration but a few quarts of ale. . This day the Subscribers to the new Loan made good their first payment of rj per cent. The Englishi herring fishery in the North Sea has in the course of the last month been very succcssful. HOUSE oj COMMON S, July 8. PASSED Sir Ashton Lever's Lottery Bill. Mr Pitt said, when he first proposed to lay an additional duty on Coals, he was 111 hopes the tax would have been ap- proved of; but found many gentlemen we're apprehensive that the tax could not be modelled in such a manner, but it must materially affeCt. the trade and manufacture ot this kingdom . be. was not altogether of their Opinion; yet as scarce be given to hear all the objections, and to make those exceptions which would be neeessary, he should, in compli- ance with the wish ot many persons, give up tbe tax upon coals, to hoped the House would sufficiently understand him, that he by no means abandoned the' idea of the tax another year ; for under particular regulations it might be made a good tax, and not any wise oppressive to trade and manu- facture!' He therefore, for the present, should conclude with moving, " That so much Of the resolution of the House of Thursday last, as related to laying ' a duty on coals, be discharged." Sir John Wrottesley, Mr Stanhope, and . Lord Delaval re- turned thanks to Mr. Pitt for withdrawing the Coal Tax. Sir Joseph Mawbey was sorry the Right Hon. Gentleman had moved to discharge the order totally, as he was of opi nion a duty, at ail events, should he laid on coals exported to Holland , Flanders, & c. Tbe motion agreed to. Mr Burke stated his reasonS tor not pursuing any farther the prosecution against Sir Elijah Impey. And he began with desiring the Clerk to read that part of the journals where the House addressed his Majesty to recall Sir Elijah Impey for having been guilty of misconduCt; likewise for recalling of Warren Hastings, Esq; for the same fault. The journals being read, the Right Hon. Gentleman proceeded to shew, that when Mr Piit, a few days since, announced the arrival of Sir Elijah Impey, he must do it either as a piece Of information to the House, or from a view 10 ground some proceeding upon it; but it would probably be expec- ted that he ( Mr Burke) having been extremely active in framing the Report of the SeleCt Committee, which com- plained of the conduct of Sir Elijah lmpey, should be the proper person to carry on the prosecution against him, now he was returned; but he could assure the House that he should decline doing it; and stated, that alth'o' it would be im- practicable in him to prosecute Sir Elijah Impey, he thought Mr Pitt, as Minister of the Crown, was bound to do it. Mr Pitt did not conceive himself bound to do it, merely as Minister. Mr burke again insisted, that it was the duty of Mr Pitt to bring Sir Elijah Impey to trial, and that the sole reason of his Mr Burke's) declining to do it, was from a cer- tainty that it would not be effectual, which it would it taken up by the Minister. Mr Pitt said, the original accusers should be the persons to impeach and prosecute. The House in a Committee on the Bill of the Com- missioners of Public Accounts, Mr Gilbert in the Chair. Mr Hussey said, the Commissioners had examined the accounts of the Sub- Treasurers Offices, & c. but they never examined the Treasurer's Office ; this was the source from which all the other inferior offices arise. Mr Hussey would therefore thank Mr Pitt if he would inform him, why the accounts ot that principal office were not examined as well as the other offices. Mr Pitt stated how far the ACt of Parliament enabled them to examine. Adjourned till this day. Mr Rose brought up several papers from the Treasury, amongst which was the tax on hats, which was agreed to. Mr Pitt gave notice, that the smuggling bill which. stood for this day, he wished to postpOne till a future day, that nothing might interfere wit. h tbe Indian business. Sir Herbert Mackworth moved, that the order for taking into confideration the duty on glass should be postponed till Thursday allowing, or any day next week. Mr Hussey said, it should be put off till next sessions. ., Sir Herbert Mackworth declared that he had n0 objection to accommodate himself to the inclinations of gentlemen but thought it proper to consult those concerned. Sir Matthew White Ridley rose to state, that the Glass Manufacturers of Newcastle had taken very serious alarm on hearing of the present application ; he hoped, therefore, ihe Hon. Baronet would not think of adjourning the business over for another week It had already been continued very extraordinarily by adjournments from day to day, and to suspend it for six days longer would induce the manufactu- rers to think the house still meant to do something upon it this session. Sir Matthew declared, that the Glass Manu- facturers from whom he had received any intelligence, de- nied ihe truth of many of the faCts alledged in the petition of the Glass Manufacturers whose caufe the Hon. Baronet espoused, and therefore it would be necessary to allow all parties sufficient time to explain themselves to the satisfac- tion of the house, before any thing was decided either one way or the other. Sir Matthew alligned other reasons for wishing to put the business off till the next session, aod moved, by way of amendment, that the words " that day three months" be inserted, instead of the words " that day se'nnight." Sir Herbert Mackwortb complained of this as unfair. An amendment was then made, that instead of " Thurs- day next," " this day three months" should be inferted. Sir Herbert Mackworth, when the question was put, and the House about to divide, gave up his motion; consequently the business is put off. Mr Pitt brought in his India Reform Billr which was read a first time. Mr Wraxall returned his thanks to the Right Hon Gen- tleman for his firmness in maintaining the superintending power of the Governor General of Bengal over the inferior Presidencies: the House muft feel the necessity of making the subordinate Governors dependant upou Bengal; the insolent, contemptuous, and almost rebellious conduct, of Lord Macartney, in disobeying the orders of Mr Hastings, clearly demonstrated the necessity of taking such steps as would in future secure to the Governor General the obedi- ence of all the officers in the subordinate settlements. Mr Dempster recommended the House, to empower the Governor General of Bengal to choose his principal assistant in a judicial capacity from those who had been bred to the law, rather than from Gentlemen entirely iguorant of that profession. mr Pitt moved, that the bill be read a second time on Tuesday next. He mentioned that early day, as he appre- hended, that although some gentlemen intended to oppose it, they certainly could have no objections to its commit- ment, which might be fixed for Wednesday or Thursday next. With regaid to the opposition intended to be made to the bill, he thought that would be done in the Committee. Mr Fox apprehended that Friday next would answer better; but declared he had no intentions to retard the bu- liness, notwithstanding he wished the bill to be first printed, in order that gentlemen might fully weigh the tendency of it. He, however, hoped that it would be understood, that he did not make this observation from a desire to collect himself gor the subjeCt, as he had already made up his mind on the matter; and he cordially confessed, that those passages in the middle of the bill, relative to the Zemindars, and other salutary regulations, deserved approbation, but there were other clauses to which he would object. Mr Pitt wished to accommodate himself to the inclina- tions of the House; therefore he had no objection to the day proposed by Mr Fox. He then moved, that the bill he read a second time on Tuesday, and that it should be com- mitted for Friday next; agreed to. Mr Fox wished that Mr Pitt would inform him when he thought that the navy bills, and the bill relative to the tea or window tax, would be brought in. Mr Pitt imagined both bills would be brought in on one day, although he could not fix the precise period. The loan, he presumed to think, could not be later than Tues- day next. Adjourned till Monday. IRON MANUFACTORY.

The Duchess of Argyll's retiring from Court has given infinite concern to her Majesty, in whose Service she has been ever since she became onr Sovereign. When Duchess of Hamilton she was Sent to accompany her Majesty to England, and from that period to the present has, without interruption, deservcdly preserved the friendlship of her Royal Mistress. In the course of her long attendance upon the person of her Majesty, she has never been known to use her influence to the injury of any one whatever. Her elevation in life; though great, was no more than she me- rited ; in her person she has united the contending Houses of Argyll and Hamilton, whose animosities rent Scotland for centuries. She has been married to the heir of each house, has been the mother of two Dukes, and has now a son who is heir apparent to the dukedom of Argyll; there are circumstances of honour attending the fortunes of one lady that cannot he instanced in our hidory. Miss Pulteney is on the whole the greatest heiress ever remembered in this country. The annual income of her fortune will exceed that of Lady Strathmore 4000I. a year. Friday last the Hon Mr Fitzroy, son of Lord Southimp ton, made her Majesty a present of a Bull sent him from the east Indies. Tiii » creature is looked upon as a great cu- riosity, not being bigger than an ass. The Scheme of employing felons on the fortifications, and off the Dockyards, in deepening the water, and re- moving Shoals, will become general, Hulks being now pre- paring at Chatham and Sheerness for that purpose. House of CommonS-, July 12. The House resolved itself into a Committee on the bill for imposing an additional duty on candles, Mr Gilbert in the chair . Mr Sloper called the attention of the House to the hard- ship which the propofed tax tended to impose on the poor. He thought that by imposing a higher duty on a pound of large candles, and a lesser one on small. the poor would be ex- empted from any additional burthen on this necessary of life. He wished for a clause of amendment. Mr Rose said such a clause would be almost impracticable. Sir James Johnstone said, every one knew that there was a great variety in the size of caudles; some were Sixteen in the pound, and fsome only four or five; and what possible difficulty could there be in taxing according to their sale ? Capt. James Luttrell observed, that it the larger candles only were taxed, people of fortune would be induced to make use of the latter in their stables and other offices, and the public revenue receive a very considerible injury. Sir James Johnstone observed, that the tax on wax candles was by far too small, considered as articles of luxury. The question being put, whether the clause objected to remain a part of the bill, it was carried in the affirmative. The House resolved itself info a Committee on the bill for the further prevention of smuggling, ' ' Mr Eden said, that the bill involved such a variety of matter, and the1 laws to which it bore reference were so many, and of so diftant a date, that he thought it would be exceedingly proper to order its being printed, and in the mean time to report it. Mr Pitt was of opinion that the present bill was not of such a very complex nature. He would not, however, wish to precipitate a business of this magnitude and im- portance improperly. Mr Gilbert proceeded to read the clauSe Mr Wilberforce objected to one, which Subjected the owners of vessels to punishment on account of the miscon- duck of the master, or mariners, or both. The bill enacted, that on the discovery of a small quantity of contraband commodity, the ship should he Seized and confiscated. This was an infliction directed not against the guilty, but those who were not so much as accessary to the crime, the owners of ships. He thought this penalty exceedingly erroneous in its principle, and calculated to produce very bad effects on trade and navigation. The Solicitor General defended the penal sanction. Smuggling had of late become so clamant an evil that the practice of it justified the most rigorous mode of prevention. He saw the difficulty which would inevitably arise from admitting a distinction between the owner of a vessel and the master or Seamen. Under this idea various frauds would be intro- duced equally unfriendly to trade, and favourable to Smug- gling. Such was the length to which contraband commerce had been of late carried, that even houses of the greatest opulence were not ashamed to deal in it. Mr Atkinson thought the penalty much too rigorous. It tended to destroy the principles of trade. The committtee then came to the following resolutions: — That the farther duties, payable on the importation of cofFee and cocoa nuts do cease.— That in lieu thereof, a duty of 6d. per pound avoirdupoise, be paid upon all coffee imported from America.— That a duty 01 is 5d, per pound ditto be paid upon all coffee imported from any other places.— 1 hat a duty of 6d. per pound ditto he paid on cocoa imported from America— That a duty of is. 6d. per pound ditto be paid upon all cocoa nuts imported from any other places, the above duties to be Subject to the j I, percent, duty! The faid resolutions 10 be reported to- morrow, and the Committee to sit again On Wednesday.
