J 33d year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord GEORGE the THIRD, King of Great Britain, & c. JOHN KEDDELL, Elq. Mayor. THIS COURT, truly sensible of the happiness which they, in common with the reft of his Majefty'a fubjefb enjoy, under the present system of Government s and obferving, with great concern, the disposition of many evil- minded perfons, in different parts of the kingdom, to provoke and diffeminate a fpirit of fedition HAVE Refolved unanimoufly. THAT the prefent fituation of affairs renders it indispensably neceffary for every Corporate Body, to be forward in manifesting their attachment to their King, and a reverence for the laws of the realm. Refolved unanimously, THAT the establilhed Constitution is admirably well calculated for the protection and security of persons and of property; an4 that the pernicious doctrines, which have of late been industriousy propagated by evil- disposed men, ( although artfully calculated to beguile the minds of the lower order of people, by holding out fallacious representations) have, in fact, a manifest tendency to deprive the subjects of this kingdom of that REAL LIBERTY, and thofe iseitimable blessings, which they now enjoy. Refolved unanimously, THAT the Members o'.* fiis Court will, as well individually as colle£ tively, ufe their strenuous exertions in the support of ORDER and TRANQUILLITY ; and to fruftrate the darin- attempts of fuch wicked or deluded persons, who may wildly aim at the subversion or violation of those laws which the'' WISDOM of AGES hath established, Refolved unanimously, THAT although this Court doth confidently hope that, at pre- fent, there does not exift, within their jurisdiction, any one fo lost to the sense of that duty which he owes to his country, him- self, and his family, as to entertain principles inimical to the efta- blessed Constitution ; yet as such vile and insidious machinations have been fet OH foot to produce that effect— this Court doth ear- nestly exhort every freeman and house- holder, resident within the said Corporation, by their example and admonition to co- operatg with them, in an endeavour to convince their neighbours and do. mestics of this important truth— that their welfare and happinefs depend" on a firm allegiance to the King, and a due obfervance of the salutary laws of the land— and that, if the calamitous objedt of factious men should be once accomplished, although the lower ranks of the community might derive, from rapine and plunder, a temporary and small advantage, yet that the bands of fociety would be thereby disunited, and every source of future fupporc, for themselves and families cut off and destroyed. Resolved. upanimously, THAT notice be given Co the several Innkeepers and Victuallers, within the jurisdiction of the said Corporation, that if they shall hereafter permit any libellous or seditious publications- or writing* to be distributed, read, or debated upon, within . their respective houses, the licences of such houses will not, in future, be re* newed.

Guildhall, Rochester, th Pec. r, 92. K E N T. North Division of the aSSOCiATION for defend- Lath of Aylesford and > \ ing Liberty and Property, against City of Rochester, Republicans and Levellers. At a very numerous and respectable Meeting of the Magistrates, ' Gentlemen and Inhabitants of this Division and City, GEORGE BEST, Esq. in the Chair, It was resolved as follows: I ft. That it is the express purpose of this meeting, openly and directly to declare a firm and unshaken attachment to the King and Constitution of these Kingdoms. 2dly. That we think ourselves immediately called upon, at the present moment, to comc forward with this declaration, from ai entire belief, that the most wicked endeavours, have for some time past been exerted in various ways, to raise a general spirit of dif- content and sedition. that the attempt to effect this, has pani- cularly appeared in the dispersion of dangerous and treasonable pub- lications, in a 1 par. s, calculated to unsettle the public mind, to destrot all respect for our Sovereign, all obedience to the laws, and subordination among the different ranks of society. . That we consider the authors and promoters of this nefa- rious purpose, as much enemies to the private and domestic hip - piness of each individual, as they are to th' public welfare, inaf- much a. the execution of it would be followed not only by the ruin of our excellent constitution, by the subversion of all order and justice, and by the annihilation of that eminent national prosperity, which we now enjoy; of which every rank ani condition partakes, but would put our property, our liberty, our very lives at stake. 4thiy. That as in every government, there must be different ranks and degrees of men, we are convinced, that in such as are well regulated, this does not tend t the encouragement of pride and oppression, but is the occasion of promoting in , uftr , and of providing for the wants of the artificer, the labourer, and the indi- gent; and that therefore the adoption of any fancied system of equa- lize, io , would, while it introduced civil confusion, deprive by its effects the lower orders of society, of those means of subsistence which they now enjoy. 5 hly. That under a serious conviction of these truths, we now stand forth a. members of . he community, interested in the public happiness, as individuals, anxious tor the preservation of good order, and in defence of those objects which are most dear to us; and as we profess to unite ourselves together in this impotant caufe, fo do • we alfo pledge ourselves, that if any should be fou d so imprudent or malicious, as to excite a tendency to riot and disturbance, we are ready and determined to form a barrier againft them, and to exert ourfelves by every lawful method in the maintenance and fipport of the public tranquility.— And resolved therefore, that the perfons present at this meeting, do become a society for these purposes. 6: hly. That moreover, we think ourselves bound as good fub- jects , to make this further declaration ; that we will not hesitate to discover and make known any . treasonable or seditious desigr. s, which may in any wise come to our knowledge. 7thly. That the following Gentleman be a Committee, for the purpose of promoting more immediately the purpofes of this meet- ing, and that they do meet from time to time, at the Council Chamber, in the City of Rochester, and that any five of them be compete t to act to that end, with power to call future General Meetings, as they shall see occasson.

ROCHESTER, 10th Dec. 1792. - A very respectable meeting of the Magistrates, Gentle- men and Inhabitants of the North Division of Aylesford and City of Rochester, to the number of three thousand, af- sembled at the Guildhall, Rochelter, this day ; when Geo. Best, es.. being unanimously voted in the Chair, Mr. William Twopenny read the Advertisement concerning the meeting, and Mr. Best then opened the business in the Hall by tne following address: Gentlemen and Fellow Countrymen, In discharge of the duty ot the honourable situation in which you have now placed me, I come forward to express the intention of Convening this meeting : and I feel the most heartfelt pleasure in seeing it so respectably attended.' ' I'll* wicked designs to subvert our admirable Constitution are but too apparent the public declaration of our beloved Sovereign leaves no doubt of their exstence. It is unna- cessary to point out, Gentlemen, that we actually possess the blessing of REAL liberty : it ts also unnecessary to observe, that our exertions to preserve the enjoyment of it, arena lei's honourable in us, than the struggles to obtain it were glorious in our ancestors. To transmit it unimpaired to our posterity is a duty we owe to those from whom we re- ceded it, and this noble inheritance can only be insured, by the preservation of our glorious Constitution 111 the form of KING, LORDS, and COMMONS. I am persuaded, Gentle- men, that you carry in your own breasts the conviction of these undeniable truths. To testify then our ardent and unshaken attachment to our " beloved King and to this Con- sitution by a public declaration : to pledge ourselves to their support by resolving to make a firm opposition to all evil machinations against their.; to shew ourselves worthy of our freedom by coming forward to i 1 s support in the hour of danger ; FOR THIS PURPOSE we are convinced. And let us, thetefote, evince our thorough knowledge, and perfect sense of the blessngs we thus enjoy, by our ar. xiety at this moment, and at every period of our lives, to secure them to ourselves, and to our posterity. Mr. Longley then addressed the meeting as follows : Gentlemen, Fellow Citizens . and Fellow Countrymen, You have heard the worthy Chairman's explanation of the motives for the Invitation published by the Magistiatcs of the neighbouring Division of the County in conjunction . with those of this City, to the Inhabitants of these populous Towns arid the Country adjacent, to meet them here this Day to Consider of an association in defense of our common Constitution against the attempts uf those wicked men who wished to subvert it. I will take the liberty to lay before you addressing myself to the Chairman, as is regular on such occasions, my ideas of the necessity, the object, and the due extent of such an Association. Sir, when this matter of general Association was first started in another Place, I confess 1 entertained some doubts, not of the Rights of the People to assemble peacea- bly, and express the r opinions on public Affairs, but of of the expediency of doing it now, and in the mode propos- e 1792 IT Ts the King's pleasure that, notwithstanding any leave of absence granted by his Majesty, all officers belonging to regiments in Great- Britain, or on foreign ftations, do join their refpeflive corps without delay; except fuch officers as are employed on the recruiting fervice.

Government have received uriquestionable intelM- gence, that an English Emissary was recently fent to Paris, charged with dispatches to Dumourier, in which certain British Traitors of some note pledged themselves, " that if he would land 10,000 of his troops in England, he should be greeted with an im- mediate junction of 20,000 English Revolters !"— that well known Emissary is not yet returned from his Embassy ! The French have, at this time, thirteen fail of the line up the Straits — Admiral Goodall, who difplays the British flag in the Mediterranean, will, on a commencement of hostilities, be reinforced by a 1 squadron sufficient to extirpate the Gallic Pirates from those seas! j The latest information we received from France The last accounts from Ireland are by no means of a favourable nature— The spirit of tumult was not likely to be subdued by the mediating influence of the most respectable characters of the Catholic, as well as the Protestant persuasion. More large orders came over from France on Monday, for buying up all the foreign corn that could be laid hold of. It is well known that large quantities are coming hither to be difpofed of, and we have no doubt but it will be bought for our own ufe, efpecially fhould a war take place. Friday advice was received by Government, that Capt. Drury, in his Majesty's frigate the Squirrel, had captured four Corn Vessels, laden with Wheat from Ireland, and bound to France, for the fupply of the French army. The Duke of Portland, to his honour, is extreme- ly solicitous to assure the Public, that he was not present at, much less participated in, the sentiments of Charles Fox. INTERESTING TO LADIES. Cream of Violets, as a refined and delicate foap, calculated more immediately for feminine use, is re- spectfully offered to the notice of the Ladies under the sanction of a grant from his Majesty, securing to the Inventor the exclusive right of manufacturing it for fourteen years. Extreme cleanliness of person has ever been one of the greatest recommendations of the Sex. The fein cannot be thoroughly freed from the soil contrafted from the floating dust, even in the cleanest rooms, without something of a cleansing quality ; and it is a well known fact, that such is the delicate texture of the neck and arms of many Ladies, that the ap plication of any sort of foap will immediately caufe them to smart and chap. To remedy this teasing evil, the Cream of Violet will be found to poflefs all the powers of thoroughly cleanfing the pores of the Ikin, and at the fame time of giving to it an animated fairnefs, and delicacy of tint, equal to the finelt natural Complexion. Parents, who with great propriety object to the ufe of paint, cannot objett to the use of the Cream ot Violets, it being but a secondary soap, prepared on the same innocent principle, and included in the fame Patent as the Violet Soap, but of a more refined na ture and frc. m a cooling quality it possesses, it is particularly calculated to ieiieve tt » e ( km from the ef- fects of the Sun 111 Summer, or in hot climates' giving a refreshing feel after washing with it, remo- ving that yellowness occasioned by sea bathing, and rendering every part to which it is applied, beauti- fully white, soft, and fair. The sale of this article is confined to folely houfes of known respectability ; and may be had in Pint bottles at 5s. each, stamp duty included, at Mr. Bailey's, haberdasher, No. 77, New Bond- street ; Messrs.

Anvil ' - Saltram Whilky Volunteer Colt Coeur de Lion Cymbeline Calash Dido errant knave 5 such unfortunately will be the case of all Frenchmen, whom such gentry afflict with their encomiums I The Levellers here begin to despair of their brethren in England and Ireland, since the Association for levelling knaves has boldly come forward to assert not only the_ Rights, but the Duties of Man. May the Association of worthy characters confound the knaves that labour to make happy England the theatre of blood and ravage; in fine to asimilate it to miserable France 1 A word on the" papers recently discovered at M. Dti- frene's— It is asserted that, on the 10th of August, the Queen snatched a pistol from an officer's girdle, and pre- fented it to the King, saying, " This is the time to ( how " yourself— but the King rejected it. I have reason to doubt the veracity of that assertion, for two reasons— ii. tft, the Queen is no virago— in tne second place, I learned from a person, now ia London, and who will read this, that the King would not have abandoned the brave Swiss, had not his Queen knelt to him, and conjured him, by the love he entertained for her and his children, to take refuge in the National Assembly; persuaded, as she was, that the mob meant to cut her head off. The cause of Namur is taken by Valence— the garrison became prisoners of war. Dumourier sends up his groans to the National Conven- tion ; his army is starving, men and beasts, as they are.— He has not one hundred pounds to pay his heroes : he says he will resign, if matters are not better ordered. The oeconomical Cambon cannot believe that the conquering General is in a state of misery; if it be true, as he himself asserted, that he took such quantities ol' ammunition and provisions from the Austrians. Pache, Secretary at war, is a Jacobin of the new style, consquently unfriendly to Dumourier's party : it is suf- pected that he has aimed at bringing the army to utter de- struction. The Members of the Convention are laughed at by the people,^ s they go in and out of ihe House. They are. : o be sure, a miserable set of Legislators ; among them, in particular, are two monsters, who, on the bloody days of September, were each in. a public- house near the prisons of the Cenciergerie and the Chatelet : when the murderers were in doubt, whether they should kill such or such a one, they used to consult these patrons, and on their ipse dixit depended the lives of hundreds I Justice will have them named-— Panis and Marat! It also appears, that four murderers re- ceived is livres a piece, for dispatching 136 innocent Priests. bore date Tliurfuay laft ; at that time, as our rea- ders muft have fcen, the vengeance of the prevailing fusion was advancing with hafty ttrides to crulh the nnhappy Louis.— In addition to thele accounts, we are told of letters from Paris of a day later ( Friday) which would a'ffure us that the bloody cataflrophe is before this complete; that a tumoltuou: aflemblage frc m all the dillridts of the capital had raifed a cla mour round the walls of the Convention, demanding his immediate trial and execution, which it is fup- pofed has been obeyed, and that ( he fentence that was lure to pals has been as fpeedily executed. Monday morning another of the King's Mtflen- gers arrived in town from Paris, charged with dif- patches fubfequent to thole brought over by Mr. Brookes— They contain advice, that the Democratic Rulers of France pertift in forcing the palTage of the Scheldt— and treat, with almoft filent contempt, the remonlhances of the Britilh Court on that fubjech— ' Lon, Packet. It is laid that nine more regiments of militia will very Ihortly be called out. Jn the event of a war, it is the received opinion that feveral of our regiments will be fent on foreign fervice, particularly fome companies of Artillery. The following political arrangements, are now faid to be on the tapis, and will probably be declared at the meeting of Parliament, viz— His Grace of Portland, Lord Loughborough, and Mr. Wyndham, avowed feceders from Oppolition— The Law Lord, in that cafe, will be in a fair way to the Chancellor- fliip. Most of them are of the fame blood with Highflyer. The Duke of York sold Chanticleer for 54° gs-— Bro- ther to Halbert for ^ ogs.— and Soldier for 115gs. PARIS, Dec 6. The humane Legislators of France ire loo well persuaded, that a Republican form of Government is not calculated to give geneial satisfaction to their unfortunate countrymen, not to hold out terrors to, and pronounce anathemas on all such, as ilia 11 dare express an opinion, militating against their supreme will: animated, therefore, by modern phi. lanthropy and the true spirit of Gallick liberty, they have sentenced to the block the sacrilegious individuals, who shall propose, or in any other manner attempt to restore not only Royalism, but a power of what denomination soever, tending to invade the sovereignty of the. nation 5 or in other words, to establish good government in the room of anarchy, and a system of plunder and death. Lest the universe should not he sufficiently apprised of the scene of criminality, which is at the eve of being hiought forward in this distracted country, on the motion of gentle Pethion, it was decreed,. on Monday, tliat the National Convention would try Louis XVI. at their own tribunal; it was then enacted, that, after his sentence should be palTed, the nation would dispose of the rest of his family. Robespiere conceived that the dignity of France would acquire new lustre, if the Convention, in its justice, decreed Louis's head to fall that very hour. A Member re- ' marked on the occasion, that the papers found in the wall deposed against the- civic honour or several Members of the House ; and he supposed such would uniformly vote, that the prisoner should be condemned unheard, left he ( hould utter disagreeable truths— the would- be Dictator, as if thunder- struck, sunk into silence. Undoubted proofs of Mirabeau's corruption are extant; the papers lately found in the Palace, show him to have been paid by the civil li.' L A letter of M. Talon's appears, in which he fays, that Mirabeau insisted on an annuity, or a pension on the national treasure, without fixing the sum. I am of opinion it will soon come out, that his allowance was 500 . louis d'ors a month; at least I was told fo, in his life time, by one of his most intimate acquaintance, now Commander in Chief of the Germanic Legion. By another letter it appears, that La Fayette's conduct proved agreeable to the King! who would have thought it ? and that he was commissioned by his Majesty to buy off Mirabeau. Another paper was read yesterday, containing a vail plan of secret influence; I can only give a very limited idea of it in the small space allotted tor these advices— 600 livres a month were distributed to twelve able Membres of the Con- stituent Assembly ; two of the Jacobins had a 00 a piece per month; two of their Committee were paid at 300 livres each. The Ex- Bishop of Autun, M. Chauvelin's diplomatic companion, can boast of being impeached -- his bufinefs was done last night. What a shade is here M. de Talley- rand thrown into 1 The PIOUS Prelate, in whole praise all the London Jacobin prints ran wild, is proved to be an REPUBLICAN HYPOCRISY AS it was v. ry natural to expect, the Republicans of this kingdom now affect to treat the preparations of Government with contempt; and insolently ask where the dangers lies ? They talk of themselves as " a few obscure fucieties, which may be dispersed by constables," and very gravely assett that all which they demand is " a wise and temperate reform of Parliament. Now, Mr. Pi inter, if any thing completes the charac- ter of our jefuitical Republicans, it is their cowardice in denying their real principles, and their hopocrisy in assum- ihg false ones. But as they affect to be ignorant of the causes which oc- cafioned a more than common watchfulness in the public at piefent, I wil state to them a few of the principal. The Society foolishly calling itself Constitutional, and other similar Clubs, have taken every opportunity hitherto, and in the most public manner, to approve of the proceed- ings of the French Assembly, Covention, and Jacobin Club ; and h; ivc, in the most unequivocal language, recom- mended every book and pamphlet tending to establish in this countiy an anarchy similar to what tyrannizes at |> re- lent in France - L- t the most barefaced Member of their Clubs affect to deny this. A great many associations on the fame principles have been formed in the manufacturing towns of Great Britain, where the poor and uninstructed minds of t! le labouters have been deluded into a belief that by a revolution their fi- would be bettered, A Club in tiie Borough of Southwark have already been the canfe of one mob assembling, pi etendedly to burn an effigy; bir had they been opposed in this, the leaders of that Club know what their instructions were 1 The constant, and, hitherto, the most daring efforts of such Clubs to excite riots have been the cause ol the prepa- rations which ara no. v making to convince these men that their further endeavours will not pass un noticed, nor with inp. mity. Their correspondence with France is another proof that there is nothing they would stick at to bring about in this country all that has happened thete. But af- ter having been for the laft two years fo very open and ex- plicit in their resolutions and declarations, that they should now draw back, and, in the true cant ol hypocrites, plead that they " really meant nothing more than a temperate re- form of Parliament," is truely disgraceful, and admits only of one apology- fear. They say they rre " obscure individuals."— That this is the case with nine tenths of tin m is very certain. But they will please to recollect that all mobs are made up of obscure inviduals, and the gentlemen who " did the busi- ness," in June 1780, were fo very obscure that few of them could be sworn to when they came to be tryed.

BEFORE LORD LOUGHBOROUGH. Trial of ihe pretended Duke of Ormond. Henry Griffin, alias George Hubbard alias Lord MafTey, alias the Duke of Ormond, was tried for a capital offence, in forg m* an order for payment of money, purporting to figned by the Earl of Tankerville, and direced to Mefffs. Coutts and Co. bankers. The order was in the following words!---" Pay to Lord Massey, or bearer, 1,449!." " TANKERVILLE," " To messrs. Coutts and Co." The indictment also charged the prisoner with uttering the above order, knowing it to be forged. Thete were several other counts in the indictment, charging the prifoner with intending, by the forgery, to defraud the Earl of Tankerville and Messrs. Wellerton and Co. The first witness was Mr. Charlet Orren, jeweller, a partner in the house of Messrs. Wellerton and Co. the pro- sequtors ; - he said, that on the 16th of March, 1791, ' be prisoner came to their shop in Bond- street, and requested to look at some diamond necklaces and earrings, saying he was recommended by Lord Salisbury ; the prifoner left a caid of his address, which was-—" Lord Massey, No. 46, St. James's Place j he desired the witness to wait upon him at four o'clock in the afternoon, with different articles of jewellery. At four o'clock, the witness accordingly went to his lodgings, and was shewn up stairs by the prisoner's fervant; the witness . produced a variety of articles of jewellery, and the prisoner selected some to the amount of 760!.; at this time, the arrival of Dr. Hunter was an- nounced, upon which the prisoner politely requested the witness to withdraw for a few moments, which he accord- ingly did; and in a few minutes, the witness was again ordered imo the room, when he faw Doctor Hunter writing a prescription. The prisoner having agreed for the goods, went to a drawer, out of which he took the draft or order before mentioned. The witness took it home, and returned foon afterwards, but the prisoner was gone out, and the wiiness never saw him afterwards till he was in custody at 1 • Birmingham. The draft was foon afterwards prefented for payment, and discovered to be a forgery, The witnefs. said he verily believed him to be the person who gave him the draft, End that had assumed the character of Lord Massey, Mrs. Horton said she kept a house in St. James's place. On the 15th of March, 1791 the prisoner under the af- sumed character of lord Massey, took lodgings at her houfe, he entered upon them on the following day, and ftaid only a few hours; he went away as if he was only going to pay a visit, but never returned; he left his French servant. and trunks, behind hint. She verily believed the prisoner to be the fame man that had taken the lodgings. His trunks were afterwards opened, and they contained nothing but brick- bats and some hay- bands. The witness well re- membered, that while the prisoner was in her house, he was visited by Doctor Hunter for some complaint, and that " Mr. Green also came, to him. Mary Munro, a servant- to Mrs. Horton, confirmed the evidence of her mistress: she added she had waited upon him while his servant was sent on an errand, and could swear positively to his person ; she attended him to the door when he left the house, and saw him get into a hackney coach, desiring the coachman to drive to the Duke of Argyle's. Joseph Le Cree, said he advertised for a place, in conse- quence of which, he received a message from the prisoner, under the name of Lord Massey, to wait upon him at Ib- betson's Coffee- house, Vere- street; the. witness went there accordingly and was hired by the prisoner, who told him he must enter into his service immediately, or it would not do; this was 011 the Y 6 th of March, 1791, the witness en- tered into his service instantly, and took the prisoner's trunks to Mrs. Horton's in obedience to his orders, he remembered Mr. Hunter and Mr. Green coming to visit his master, who soon afterwards went away and never returned. Several respectable witnesses proved that the forged order was not of the hand- writing of Lord Tankerville, who kept no cash at Messrs. Coutts and Co.' s banking- house. The prisoner beiiig called upon for his defence, addressed the Jury in a speech couched in elegant language; in which he made several observations upon the testimony of the wit- nesses, and endeavoured to persuade the Jury to discredit the evidence of Mr. Green. He called Mr. Brook, an Attorney, resident at Bir- mingham, to prove that the evidence Mr. Green had given in Court was contradictory to what he had said at Birming- ham respecting the identity of the prisoner, but Mr. Brook did not in " any respevt diminish the force of Mr. Green's testimony. _ , ' Lord Loughborough summed up the evidence with the greatest ability and precision, after which the Jury found the prisoner- Guilty- Death. The prisoner was elegantly dressed, and appeared totally unconcerned about his fate. MR.

WHEREAS a paragraph appeared in the Kentish Herald of Nov. ictb last, respecting the deci- Unn of a Debating Society at Folkestone concerning PAIne'S writings, and the said paragraph having given great offence;. the author feels it a duty incumbent upon him to declare,, that, he by no means meant to convey any idea that such were the sentiments of the inhabitants in general; but only the decision of a few per- sons who used to meet once a week . at a private house to debate on various subjects for evening amusements ( which meeting is now voluntarily dissolved.)— And he declares, that the only reason he had for inserting the said paragraph was, in compliance with the general custom of notifying such occasions in this and other pa- pers — He hopes by this public declaration to atone for his indif- cretion ; and to prevent any odium being cast upon the inha- bitants of this town : at the same time he also declares, that po man more despises and reprobates all writings that way tend to subvert the constitutional laws of this country.

Norwood oad Smart. i Dacgjibw, 1791.. blessings which my subjects have derived from a state of tranquillity; but events have recen ly occurred, which re- quire our united vigilance and exertion, inl order to preserve the advantages which we have hitherto enjoyed. " The seditious practices which had been, in a great measure, checked by our firm and explicit declaration in the last fession, and by the general concurrence of my people in the same sentiments, have of late been more openly renewed, and with increased activity. " A spirit of tumult and disorder ( the natural consequence of such practices) has shewn itself in acts of riot and insur- rection, which required the interposition of a military force in support of the Civil Magistiate : The industry employed to excite discontent on vaiious pretexes, in different parts of the kingdom, has appeared to proceed from a design to attempt the destruction of our happy Constitution, and the subversion of all order and government; and this design has evidently been purfued in connexion and concert with persons in foreign countries. I have carefully observed a strict neutrality in the pre- sent war on the Continent, and have uniformly abstained from any interference with respect to the internal affairs of France; but it is impossible for me to see, without the most serious uneasiness, the strong and increasing indignations which have appeared there, of an intention to excite dis- turbances in other countries, to disregard the right of neu- tral nations, and to purfue views of conquest and aggran- dizement, as well as to adopt towards my allies, the States General, who have observed the fame neutrality with my- fest measures which are neither conformable to the law of nations, nor to the positive stipulations of exifting treaties. Under all thefe circumstances, I have felt it my indispensible duty to have recourse to those means of prevention, and in- ternal defence, with which I am entrusted by law: and I have alfo thought it right to take steps for making fome augmentation of my naval force ; being persuaded that thefe Exertions are necessary in the present state of affairs, and are beft calculated both to'maintain internal tranquility,' and to render a firm and temperate conduct effectual for preserving the blessings of peace. Nothing will be neglected on my part, that can contri- bute to that important object, consistently with the security of my kingdom', and with the faithful performance of en- engagement which we are bound equally by interest and honour to fulfil. " Gentlemen of the House of Commons, " I have ordered the estimates foi the ensuing year to be laid before you, and have no doubt that you will be ready to make a due provision for the several branches, of the public service. " You will certainly join with me in lamenting any ne- cessity for extraordinary expences, which may for a time pre- vent either the application of additional sums beyond thofe which are already annually appropriated, to the reduction of the public debt, or retard the relief which my subjeCts might have derived from a farther diminution of taxes. " But I am confident you will feel, that those great ends will ultimately be best promoted by such exertions as are ne- cessary for our present and future safety and tranquility. " And it is a great consolation to me to reflect, that you will find ample resources for effectually defraying the ex- pence of vigorous preparations, from the excess of the actual revenue beyond the ordinary expenditure. My Lords and Gentlemen, " I have great pleasure in acquainting you, that the brilliant successes of the British Arms in India, under the able Conduct of the Marquis Cornwallis, have led to the termination of the war, by an advantageous and honoura- ble peace, the terms of which are peculiarly satisfactory to me, from their tendency to fecure the future tranquility of the British dominions, in that part of the world. " Your attention will now naturally be directed to taking such meafures for the future government of thofe va- luable possessions, as shall appear, from experience and full consideration, most likely to provide for their internal pro- sperity, and to fecure the important advantages which may be'derived from thence to the commerce and revenue of' this country. " I am persuaded that it will be the object of your im- mediate consideration, to adopt such measures as may be necessary, under the present circumstances, for enforcing obedience to the laws, and for repressing every attempt to disturb the peace and tranquility of these kingdoms. " You will be sensible how much depends on the result of your deliberations ; and your uniform conduct is the best pledge that nothing will be wanting on your part which can contribute to the present security and permanent advan- tage of the country. " I retain a deep and unalterable sense of the repeated proofs which I have received of your cordial and affectionate attachment; and T place an entire reliance oh the conti- nuance of those sentiments, as well as on your firm deter- mination to defend and maintain that Conliitution which has fo long protected the liberties and promoted the happi- nel's of every class of my subjects- " In endeavouring to preserve, and to transmit to poste- rity, ihe inestimable blessings which, under the favour of Providence, you have yourselves experienced, you may be assured of my zealous and cordial co- operation ; and our joint efforts will, I doubt not, be rendered completely ef- fectual, by the . decided support of a free and loyal people." CANTERBURY Dec. 14. ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. NATIONAL ASsEMBLy, Paris, December 8. In the Sitting of the 5th a Decree passed to prohibit, under pain of death, the exportation or corn out of the French territories. In consequence of Mirabeau's being discovered to favour royalty, it was ordered that his monument in the French Pantheon should be veiled. A denunciation was made against those who still persist in proposing the Agrarian law, that is to say, a dividing of property in equal shares between all the Members of tbe Republic. A letter to the President asserted, that England had been enticed to restore the French throne to Lewis ; the Minister declared he never had any hand it, and after some alterca- tion, the tumultuous debate it had created, ceased. The trial of Louis XVI. being brought on, several Members spoke on it,' but the majority inclined to insiSt the pain of death. At this proposition, we say it with regret and shame, great applauses were manifested by the tribune ! Iuhuman people! let the sword of the law fall on him that is guilty, but do not insult the unfortunate. It is per- mitted to see crimes punished, if crimes exist; but it be- longs to canibals alone to dance round the victim, and to ' laugh at the tortures of the unfortune. A Member proposed th . t three children and three old men should carry the decree to the ci- devant Monarch, and to prepare his scaffold at the place of the Thuilleries, to perpetuate the remembrance of his sufferings and of French liberty. Several propositionS then succeeded, how and when to put the King to death, to judge him, and to let him know his fate ; but the Convention at length approved and passed the following decree, proposed by THOMAS PAINE!!! ' " A commission is to present the act, containing Lewis's crime, 011 Monday the 10th instant, and the question to be put to Lewis; 011 Wednesday the 12th, Lewis shall appear at the bar, to answer the question that shall be put to him; and two days will be allowed him for his answer ; and on Thursday the 13th the Convention, after having heard his defence shall by nominal appeal pronounce on the fate of Lewis." Paris, Dec 10— By Express. Advice is just received that the Prussian army 38,000 strong, have retaken possession of the city of Frankfort, defended by an army of 18,000 French troops and a garrison of 3,000 men ; after several en- gagements during seven days, the French army, com- manded by General Custine, was routed, and at the entrance of the Pruffians into the town, about half the garrison, who had not time to evacuate, were made prisoners. The loss in killed and wounded cannot be less than 3 or 4 thousand on each side. Extract of a letter from Dover, Dec, 13. " Advice is just received here of the retaking of Frankfort, after an obstinate engagement, and much loss on both sides." Wednesday the following Commanders took leave of the Directors of the East India Company, previous to departing for their respective destinations: Captain Jonah Pryce, Royal Charlotte, St. He- lena, Madras and China.— Philip Burnypate, Try- ton, Madras and China — Henry Burges, Earl Che- sterfield, Bombay and China. ' Yesterday in consequence of an advertisement to convene a general meeting of the inhabitants of this city and neighboured, a very numerous and re- spectable body of gentlemen and citizens, assembled at the King's Head Tavern, but the meeting being too numerous to conduct the business there, it was adjourned to the Town Hall, when William Deedes, Esq. was called to the chair. On opening the business, he stated the necessity of associating for the preservation of our Constitution and Liberties, and afterwards moved certain Reso- lations, as advertised in this day's paper, which passed unanimously.— After the business of the day was con. cluded, the whole audience joined in the loyal cho- rus of God save the King.— A very numerous body of Citizens afterwards dined at the King's Head Tavern ; amongft other toafts given on the occasion were the following : The KING. The Queen. The Prince of Wales and Royal Family, May the King of Great Britain continue to reign in the HEARTS of a brave and free People. The Constitution. The Navy of Gieat Britain- The Army of Great Britain—- and may they unite with the People in support of the Constitution, Lord Camden and the Rights of Juries. Liberty, without Licentiousness. A speedy Export to all the Enemies of Great Britain without a Drawback. The County of Kent— and may it always preserve its Liberty. Prosperity to the City of Canterbury. Mr. Deedes, and the other Country Gentlemen who have this day united with us in support of our King and Constitution. May the Unanimity of this day's Meeting, and the ge- neral Spirit of the Nation be a Lesson to our Enemies not to interrupt our Peace and Prosperity. When we drink the King and Constitution, may we not lose sight of the JUST RIGHTS and Privileges of the People. The County Members, The City Members. And other Loyal and Constitutional Toasts. The Resolutions entered into at Ramsgate Associa- tion, on Monday, are signed already by 600 persons. At the constitutional meeting, held at Dover, on Monday last, Mr. Lane, speaking of the French refugees, expressed himself in the following terms: " That though I have the fullest confidence in the loyalty of the inhabitants of this town, yet circum- stanced as Dover is at present, in having a great number of foreigners amongst us, but whom, i hope and believe, are here for refuge and protection, and not for the purpose of exciting sediticn, or creating tumults', it nevertheless behoves the magistrates and inhabitants to be vigilant, and to keep a watchful eye over all foreigners, that are or may be resident in this place." Extract of a letter from Gravesend, Dec. 11. '* At the meeting of the inhabitant of this place, at the Town- hall, to sign the resolutions, entered into by the Corporation ; the persons present, ^ as a further proof of their loyalty, and attachment to the Constitution) made a general collection of all ihe li- bellous and seditious publications, throughout the town, the number of which, ( to the credit of the people,) was very small. These were immediately burnt by the hands of the Serjeant at Mace. The Rev. Richard Board, L. L. B. is instituted, by the Lord Bishop of Rochester, to the living of Westerham, in this county, oa the presentation of Mrs. Bodicoate, widow of the late incumbent. We have received by the post this morning, a copy of the Resolutions of a very numerous and respectable meeting of the Justices, Gentlemen and other in- habitants of Dartford and its neighbourhood, ex- pressing their determination to support with their lives and fortunes our prefent happy establishment in church and state; the particulars of which will appear on Tuesday, The following extraordinary and authentic cir- cumstance has excited much attention, and given rife to various conjectures:— On Saturday last as Mr. Powell and Mr. Coxon, of Ramsgate, were at a place Called Ham- ponds, about two miles from Sandwich, for the diyersion of snipe shooting, they accidentally observed, at the bottom of a stream, fe- veral shining pieces of metal, which had the appear- ance of silver coat buttons ; in endeavouring to draw them to the shore with their ramrods, they dis- covered several others, and procuring a hoe, got out upwards of forty, and the next day upwards of thirty more. Having made the matter public, a great concourse of people, men, women and chil- dren, assembled for the purpose of exploring this newly discovered silver current; their successes were various, but the amount cannot be ascertained ; one person has acknowledged to have found upwards of three hundred pieces, others, from two or three pieces, to twenty or more; the search has been con- tinued daily, but they are found less frequent now.—- On examination they appear to be counterfeit shil- lings, without any impression whatever, thinner, and considerably lighter than real ones, and of a different complexion. It does not at present appear how they came there, but the most probable conjecture is that the possessor dispofed of them in that manner to prevent a discovery, Wednefday morning as William Millward, 9. journeyman blacksmith, at Bridge, was drawing the charge of a fowling- piece, he imprudently struck the but end against the ceiling of the room, " at the time holding his right hand over the mouth of the barrel ; the gun going off at the instant the contents were dis- charged through his hand, which was lacerated in fo terrible a manner the surgeons judged it necessary to amputate the limb immediately. What adds to his misfortune, he has a wife and three children who were supported by his industry — It is sincerely hoped this will be a caution to the public in future how they handle loaded guns, as so many accidents hap- pen through carelessness. Extract of a letter from Chatham, Dec. 10. " Orders are received here for the Terrible and Audacious, of 74 guns each, to be fitted for sea at this port. M The Monarch, of 74 guns, is now fitting for a guard- ship here ; Captain Sir James Wallace is to have the command. " The Centurion, of 50 guns, is put into com- mission at this port, and the command given to Capt. Osborne; The ship is to be stationed at Halifax. " The Hermoine, of 32 guns, is alfo commissioned at this port, and the command given- to Capt. Hills. " A Frenchman, resident in this town, was thi3 day taken into custody, and sent to London, in order to undergo an examination there, before the Secretary of State for inflammatory proceedings." On Monday last was married at Hollingbourn, Mr. Robert Larking, to Miss Henrietta Mantle, both of that place.

On Tuesday a party of the 14th regiment arrived at Purfleet from Chatham, for the purpose of guarding the powder magazine, near that place.
