NATIONAL CONVENTION. SUNDAY, Jan. 20. JEAN DE BRIE proposed to inform the people by an address, of the motives that directed the Con- vention, respecting their conduct towards Louis ; and to make a decree to banish from the galleries, every expression that may create animosity among them. M. RABAUD supported the former speaker, and conjured the Members of the Assembly to lay aside every passion not tending to the good of the public M. CAMBON made a vehement denunciation of M. KERSAINT. This deputy, since the commence- ment of the Convention, had opposed the sangui- nary members, whom he affirmed to be his associates. Alarmed at their influence, and the advantages they might have over good men, when he could no long- er be but a weak adversary, he gave in his resigna tion by the following letter— " That his health did not permit him to continue in such a boisterous Assembly ; but that it was still more impossible for him to sit among those that thirsted for blood, when their advice, preceded by terror, overawes the good— when MARAT has more influence than PETION. If the love of my country has made me encounter the mis- fortune of being the colleague of the panegyrists and pro- moters of the murders of the 2d of September, I would at least save my memory from the reproach of being ac- counted their accomplice. I have not a moment to lose — to- morrow will be too late. I return to the bosom of the people; I no longer retain the inviolability with which they clothed me ; I am ready to give them an ac-. count of all my actions; and without fear or reproach, I give in my resignation." M. CAMBON considered the above letter as an outrageous calumny on the majority of the Assem bly ; a kind of protest against the judgment they had pronounced ; a criminal intention to bring in to contempt the representatives of the people, whom he included collectively under the denomina tion of Assassins. Several Members supported CAMBON. BARBAROUX and GENSONNE defended KERSAINT. M. CHOUDIEU demanded a decree of accusation a gainst him, and that he should be brought to the Bar, which was adopted. GENSONNE. I move that the Minister of Justice may be charged to prosecute the authors and insti gators of the robberies and assassinations of the month of September." Adopted TALLIEN proposed as an additional clause, that the Minister of Justice should be charged also to prose- cute those who were at the Castle of the Thuilleries on the 10th of August. Decreed. The Minister of Justice informed the Conven tion that the Executive Council had been summoned and assembled early this morning, for the execution of the decree relative to Louis Capet, a decree of which two copies had been transmitted to the hotel of the Minister of Justice. The Council had cal- led to its assistance the Department, the Mayor, the the Commandant General, and Public Accuser of the Public Tribunal. After having concerted, a long with these, the measure of execution, the Mi- nifter of Justice, President of the Executive Coun- cil, a Member of Council, the Secretary and two Members of the Department, went together to the Temple. At two o'clock, they were brought to Louis, to whom the Minister of Justice, President of the Exe- cutive Council, said, " Louis, the Executive Coun- cil has been charged to notify to you the extract of the minutes of the National Convention, dated the 15th, 17th, and 19th of this month, which the Secretary will now read to you."— The Secretary of the Executive Council proceeded to read these three extracts. Louis answered by reading a written paper sign- ed with his own hand. After having heard this paper, I answered, continued the Minister of Ju- stice, that we should deliberate on the object of his demands. We retired, and as we were of opi- nion that we could not decide alone on the con- duct proper to be adopted, we returned to the Coun- cil, which decreed, that we should submit to you the writing delivered by Louis to the Deputation, of which I shall now read you a copy. CAMBACETES—" Louis Capet has only made those demands which you have now heard to the Deputation of the Executive Council, because they did not inform him of the decree passed yesterday on my proposition, in which the greater part of his requests are anticipated. I demand on that ground that we shall pass to the order of the day. The Assembly passed to the order of the day. LACROIX—" I demand that we pass to the or- der of the day, on the demand of a respite of three days. To grant that delay would be to revoke the delay decreed in the preceding sitting."— Adopted. The Assembly then passed to the order of the day on the demand of Louis to be freed from the per- petual inspection of the Council General. The Minister of Justice observed, that the Com- missioners of Inspection always remained in an a- partment contiguous to that of Louis. A Deputation announced, that the Citizen LE PELLETIER SAINT FERGEAU, dining in the ci- devant Palais- Royal, had been assassinated with the stroke of a poignard. The wound was three inches deep PROCLAMATION of the PROVISIONAL COUNCIL. EXECUTIVE January 20, Second year of the Republic. The Provisional Executive Council, deliberating the measures to be taken for the execution of the decree of the National Convention of the 15th, 17th, 19th, and 20th of January 1793, enacts the following regulations: I. The execution of the sentence of Louis CAPET shall take place to morrow ( Monday, Jan. 21.) II. The place of execution shall be La Place de Revolu- tion, ci- devant Louis XV. between the Pedestal and the Champs- Elisees. III. Louis CAPET shall set out from the Temple at eight o'clock in the morning, so that the execution shall take place at noon. IV. The Commissioners of the department of Paris, the Commissioners of the Municipality, and Members of the Criminal Tribunal, shall assist at the execution, the Secretary- Register of the Tribunal shall draw up tbe mi- nutes, and the said Commissioners, and Members of the Tribunal, as soon as the execution is over, shall come to give an account to the Council, who shall continue in a state of permanent sitting during the whole day. By the Provisional Executive Council, ROLLAND, CLAVIERE, MOUGE, LE BRUN, GARAT, PACHE. THE LAST REQUESTS OF LOUIS. " I demand a delay of three days, in order to make the necessary preparations to appear in the pre- sence of God ;— I demand for that purpose to send for and to see freely the person whom I shall men- tion.— The person whom I demand is M. Eschevaux de Fermont— he lodges at No. 483, Rue de Bacq. " I demand that his person be secured from all disturbance, from all apprehension on account of the last offices of charity which he shall render me. " I demand to be freed from that perpetual in- spection, which the Council General has established over me for some months. " I demand in this interval, to be able to see my family as often as I shall request, and without wit- ness. " I would request, that the National Convention would immediately proceed to deliberate on the fate MONDAY, Jan. 21. The execution of the judgment of Louis had en- gaged the Convention to assemble at nine in the morning.— This sitting, the epoch of which will ever be memorable, was opened by the reading of the following letter, addressed to the President. " BENVIT LOUIS LE Duc, solicits of the National Convention permission to pay to Louis CAPET the funeral honours which it is becoming the dignity of the nation to allow. " He, in consequence, hopes the Convention will order that the body of Louis CAPET shall be de- livered to him, to be transferred to Sens, and de- posited near his father. ( Signed) B. L. LE Duc." The Assembly deliberated on this letter, and then passed to the order of the day, on the observation of CHABOT, that Louis should be interred like other citizens, in the common burial place of the parish in which he resided. The attention of the Assembly was now diverted to the assault made the day before on the person of PELLETIER de SAINT FARGEAU. The following de- tails on this head were stated by De FAURE : PELLETIER. dined yesterday, as he had been ac- cumstomed to do, at the Palais I'Egalite, ci- devant Royal. Scarcely had he begun dinner, when six persons, among whom, we are assured, was PARIS, a Royal Garde du Corps, approached him, observing " This is PELLETIER." " That is my name," he replied—" Have you not voted," added PARIS, " for the KING'S Death ?" " Yes, I have ; and, in so doing, have obeyed the dictates of my con- science."— On pronouncing these words, the recei- ved from the hand of PARIS a sabre- wound in the ab- domen ; the assailant made his escape. PELLETIER was carried to his father's house, and expired at one this morning. His last words were, that he had not injured the assassin, and died satisfied with having Served his country, convinced that his death would be of public utility. Grief was blended with indignation at the recital of this atrocious deed. The Convention, on the motion of THURIOT, decreed, " That the Executive Council shall give an ac- count of the circumstances which accompanied the assassination of PELLETIER, and of the measures which have been taken, both to apprehend the murderers and to affix seals on their papers." There followed a conversation, in which several of the members declared they had been threatened with a fate similar to that of PeLLETIER. It was decreed that the Convention should attend his fune ral, and that his body should be deposited in the French Pantheon. The Executive Provisional Council sent the As- sembly the report of the Commissioners appointed to be present at the execution of the decrees of the 15th, 16th, 17th, and 19th of this month against Louis. BANCAL was proceeding to read this report, but several voices objected to it. LA MARQUE said, the tyrant is no more, let us think of the public affairs, and forget the tyrant. I demand the order of the day. The Convention passed to the order of the day, and did not suffer the report to be read. Execution OF Louis the Sixteenth, REPORT made to tbe COMMUNE of PARIS of particular; attending the EXECUTION of Louis XVI. The proclamation of the Provisional Executive Council relative to his execution, had hardly been notified to Louis, before he requested permission to confer with his family. The Commissioners testify- ing their embarrassment at this request, proposed to him that his family should be brought into his apart- ment ; to which he agreed. His wife, his children, and his sister accordingly came to him ; and they conferred together in the room, in which he was accustomed to dine. This interview lasted two hours and a half; their conversation was very ear- nest. After his family had retired, Louis told the Commissioners, that he had been obliged to use strong language to his wife. His Family had asked, whether they might not see him again in the morning. To this he made no answer, and Madame ELIZABETH saw him no more. Louis cried out in his chamber. " Oh, the mur- derers !, the murderers !" Addressing herself to the son, MARIE ANTOINNNETTE said, " Learn by the misfortunes of your father not to avenge his death." The morning of his execution, Louis asked for scissars to cut his hair ; they were refused him. When they took away his knife, he exclaimed, " Do they think me base enough to destroy myself?" The Commandant General and the Commission- ers of the Commune ascended, at half past eight o'clock in the morning, to the apartment of Louis, and signified to him the order which they had re- ceived, to conduct him to the place of execution. Louis required three minutes to speak with his con- fessor, which were readily granted. Immediately after, Louis presented a packet to one of the Com- missioners, with an entreaty to convey it to the Council General of the Commune. JACQUES Roux, the citizen to whom Louis ad - dressed himself, answered, that he could not take charge of it, because his mission was only to conduct him to execution ; but he engaged one of his col- leagues, who was on duty, in the Temple, to do what Louis desired ; with which he was satisfied. Louis then told the Commandant- General, that he was ready ; and in going out of his apartment, he begged the Municipal Officers to recommend to the Commune, the persons who had been in his ser- vice, and to beg, that they would give his Valet- de Chambre Clery, a situation under the QUEEN correcting himself, he said, " under my wife." They answered Louis, that an account would be given of what he required to the Commune. Louis crossed on foot the first court; in the second he mounted into a carriage, in which were his Con- fessor and two Officers of the Gensdarmerie. The Executioner awaited him at the Place de la Revo- lution. The whole train moved along the Boule- vards to the place of execution, where Louis arrived at ten minutes after ten o'clock. He undressed himself, mounted the scaffold with firmness and cou- rage, and shewed an inclination to harangue the people; but the Executioner of Criminal Justice, by the order of General SANTERRE, and by sound of drum, gave him notice that he was only to re- ceive his sentence. _ The head of Louis was then struck off; and be- ing exhibited, a thousand cries were heard of Vive LA NATION, VIVE LA REPUBLIQuE FRANCOISE. Some volunteers dipt their pikes, others their handker- chiefs, in the blood of the tyrant. The body was immediately conveyed to the Church DE LA MAG- DELAINE, where it was buried among the persons who perished on the day of his marriage, and the Swiss who were massacred on the 10th of August. The grave, in which the body was deposited, was fourteen feet deep, and seven in width. FURTHER PARTICULARS. His Majesty wore a great coat of the fashion of those which are commonly worn without other coats by the French, of a dark colour, black silk breeches and stockings, altogether neat, and his hair was dressed. Every account dates, that he advanced towards the awful apparatus with a calmness which astonished every one.— He looked round upon the multitude, as if desirous to address them— this multitude were composed of the creatures of the day, the hired in- struments of democratic vengeance ; the mass of the people, that people to whom he before had in vain expressed a wish to appeal, were kept at a distance, too great in general for them to hear any thing he might have to say. When he prepared to speak, all was for a mo- ment silent; the military music stopped, till order- ed again to proceed by the savage directors of the sacrifice, and the voice of the dying King was drowned in clamour: However, he was heard di- stinctly to pronounce, " I die innocent— I for- give—" The Council had so given instructions, that the execution might be over at noon ; yet, such was the haste of immediate conductors, as if thirsting to luxuriate in the blood of the victim, that near two hours before noon all was over ! We wish at least to believe that Egalite was not present at this shocking sacrifice, but more than one account declare that he was. The shops were shut all day on Monday.— The streets were illuminated at night, and ordered to be so again : This, however, is not to be confidered as a mark of festivity, but as tending to prevent dark assassinations. The King is said to have declared with his last breath to those immediately about him, that he sin- cerely accepted the Constitution. After the execution his mortal part was carried to the burying- ground of La Madaliene. To ac- celerate the dissolution of his body, lime was thrown into his grave. Guards were placed to prevent his being taken away in the night. Louis was born the 23d of Augud 1754. He began his reign on the 10th of May 1774; was driven from the Thuilleries the 10th of August 1792 ; thrown into prison the 14th, and dethroned the 22d of September following. Hs has reigned eighteen years and three months. Of his unhappy family nothing has been said. « 1 The people of Paris are spoken of as in a sullen stu- por: The most horrid proceedings are expected hourly to commence. On Friday morning the DAUPHIN stole down stairs the sentry at the door asked him where he was going " Into the street, replied the infant PRINCE, through all Paris, to beg of the people not to kill my dear Papa." One of the guards carried him to the King ; when he heard what the child had said, he burst into tears, and pressed him to his bosom. Within the King's desk in the Temple has been found a parcel, inclosing a sum in specie of about four thousand livres, directed by himself to M. Malesherbes— it was all his riches in the world, which, however, has not been given to the Counsel, agreeable to the grateful bequest of the deceased ! In a conversation which he had with this Advocate on Friday morning last, the latter announced to him the fatal sentence of death—" So much the better," said the King, " it eases me of longer suspence." For the moment he became thoughtful, walking a- cross the room ; by noon he was calm ; and in the evening had recovered his usual cheerfulness. Louis assured M. Malesherbes, that his wife and sisters thought as calmly on this subject as himself, " which," said he, " tends much to increase my happiness ; all my agitation of mind is for my son." It is supposed that the Convention will imme- diately proceed to determine respecting this forlorn family. Thus has Louis the Sixteenth, we will not yet say, in the enthusiastic phrase of his persecutors, the Last King of France, to their eternal dishonour, ended his individually virtuous life ; a life, by all that we can collect from cool observation, chiefly devoted to the good of his people. Considering that he was pronounced inviolable by the Constitution, and that no punishment could be inflicted upon him, but forfeiture of his Crown- considering that he was not tried according to the determined forms of the criminal code— considering that a part of the adduced evidence, such as it was, was with- held— considering that the offices of Judge and jury cannot be united ; and that the appeal to the people, whose sovereignty was pronounced the sole authority by which Monarchy had been abolished, and the Monarch brought to judgment, was set aside— we can but conclusively consider that Louis the Sixteenth has died a Martyr, ANd BE HIS BLOOD UPON THE HEADS OF HIS MURDERERS DIED, 1 A few days ago, MRS KENNEDY, the celebrated singer. London, January 25 EVENING COURANT. FRIDAY. Government yesterday received regular intelli- gence of the execution of the unfortunate Louis, early in the day ; their dispatch, we are given to understand, contains simple mention of the fact, with but few particulars. M. CHAUVeLIN is about to take his departure.- He has not received any letters of recal, but notice, under one of the clauses of the alien act, that he must leave England within a week. Lord GRENVILLE had a levee yesterday, at his office, at Whitehall, which was attended by all the Foreign Ministers. A general condolence took place on the death of Louis the XVI. By a letter received from Vienna, on Thursday last, addressed to a gentleman in this town, of high political connections, we are informed that a plot has lately been discovered in that city, wherein no less than ten thousand persons ( most of them French emissaries) were to be employed, for the horrid pur- poses of setting fire to the Palace, as well as to the city in four different parts. The above plot was very near being put in execution, and was discovered by mere accident. By the exertions of the Magistrates of that capital, however, several of the principals are taken, and they were preparing to bring them to an immediate trial. Letters from Bayonne announce, that hostilities have been commenced on the frontiers of Spain— a Spanish and French Patrole came to blows. Many - have been killed on both sides. An attack by the Spanish troops is expected daily, who receive fresh reinforcements from Fontarabia to Saint- Lutz. The purport of the communication from the Spa- nish Envoy, which the French Convention refused to hear, before pronouncing sentence on the late King, was to entreat the Convention to suspend the judgment of Louis ; and to offer, if the Envoy were allowed time to send a courier to Madrid, to obtain a promise from the King of Spain of beco- ming a mediator between France and her enemies; and to engage them to disarm and acknowledge the Republic ; on condition that the life of the head of the House of Bourbon should be saved. The Duke of GORDON has made an offer to Government, to raise a regiment of Highlanders for the protection of the King and Constitution. Colonel THOMAS DUNDAS is appointed Governor of Guernsey. Earl HOWE is to hoist his flag on board the Royal Charlotte. The number of additional seamen to be moved for on Monday next., is 30. ooo men. We do not know what is to be the additional number of land forces. His MAJESTY was on Wednesday night to have honoured Covent Garden Theatre with his presence; . but with that affection which has ever distinguished his public and private life, as soon as he was in- formed of the calamitous issue of the late exccrable machinations at Paris, he sent the Vice- Chamber- lain to the Manager, to acquaint him that he should not attend the Theatre that evening. In several of the boxes where the unfortunate French Monarch was mentioned, every female eye seemed compassionately humid— every manly face pourtrayed horror and consternation ! The audience at the Haymarket Theatre on the same night, prevented the announcing of a play for next evening, and would not permit the farce to be performed. The intelligence of the French King's fate had this effect upon the House in gene- ral. At the other Theatre God save the King was sung three times with reiterated acclamations. At the Haymarket Theatre the indignant virtue cf the people broke forth at the sight of the French banner introduced at Cymon. They hissed from the stage the ensign of a country polluted by sacrilegi- ous fury and regal massacre.

The people particularly feel for the fate of Louis's son, who is now in the custody of the Mayor, till his doom shall be decided. The QUEEN is at the Conciergerie ( a common pri- son) It is said, that orders have been given for her im- mediate trial. It was this morning reported, that the daughter of Louis XVI. died last night; but the report is not yet con- firmed. The Convention this morning named Commission- ers, to go with proper instructions to the several ports." LAST WILL and TESTAMENT of Louis, as found in the Temple, and delivered by the Commissioners to the COMMUNE of PARIS. In the name of the Holy Trinity, Father, Son, & c. This 25th of December, 1792, I, Louis Six- teenth of the name King of France, imprisoned in the Temple for more than four months, by those who were my subjects, involved in a trial, of which the issue cannot be known, from the passions of men, in the presence of God, declare my sentiments. I leave my soul to God, my creator, praying him not to judge it according to my merits, but those of Jesus Christ. I acknowledge what is contained in the symbol of the sacraments, and the doctrines of the church. I refer to the church for an explanation of its dog- mas, and do not pretend to judge those who are in error. I pray God to forgive me for having put my name to acts which may be contrary to the dogmas of the Catholic church, although I did it on com- pulsion. I pray those, whom I may have offended by dis- regard, to pardon the ill I have done them. I pardon those who have become my enemies, and I pray God to pardon them in the same manner. I commend to God my wife, my children, and my sister ; I recommend my children to my wife, and intreat her to watch over their education ; I pray my sister to continue her tenderness to my chil dren ; I entreat my wife to pardon me for what she has suffered on my account ; and I recommend to my children to obey their mother, and always to have God before their eyes. I recommend to my son, if ever he becomes King, to think only of the happiness of his fellow- citizens, and to be mindful that he never can be happy, but by ruling according to the laws. I recommend to my son the persons who have been attached to me. I recommend to my son M. M. CHAMILLY and HUE ; I beg M. M. of the Commune to deliver to CLERY ( his valet) my cloaths, my watch, and the trifles that were taken to the Commune. I beg M. M. MALESHERBES, TRONCHET, and DE- SEZE, to receive my tender acknowledgment. I protest that I am not guilty of any of the crimes with which I am reproached. This will was sent by the Commune to the Exe- cutive Power. There will be a Court mourning for the unfor tunate French King ; which will probably be fol lowed up by a general one, to point out, at once the pity of the British nation for him, and their de- testation of his murderers. The answer of the unfortunate Louis to the de putation, read in the Convention, is written in the most simple language, and with the utmost self- pos- session. It displays the true pathos; and among the many other proofs which, on the present occasion the Convention has given of cruelty and inhumanity it is not the least that they were able to hear it read without emotion, and pass with indifference to the order of the day. Let it be remarked, that what he asks for himfelf, he demands- what he requests for his family, he intreats— his last request is for his friends— when he mentions the poor and the aged whom he had supported by his bounty, he considers the bare mention of their helpless condition as the most powerful plea that could be offered in their behalf. We have been accustomed to hear Louis repre sented as a weak monarch, and had he known only prosperity, the imputation might still have remain ed.— It is, however, completely refuted by his con duct on the present occasion— a conduct which qually does him honour as a man and a Christian- a conduct which must: reflect eternal honour on his memory, and consecrate his fate to the pity and ad miration of every succeeding age, while those who have condemned him shall be regarded as objects of detestation and abhorrence. . HIGH COURT OF JUSTICIARY.- This day Ja. Robertson and Walter Berry, indicted at the instance of his Majesty's Advocate, for printing and pur blishing a seditous pamphlet, entitled, " The Political Progress of Great Britain," were brought to the bar.— James Thomson Callender, who had been included in the same libel, as the author of the pamphlet, having left the country, was outlawed. Upon reading the sentence of outlawry, the Lord Advocate informed the Court, that, as Callender, who was undoubtedly the principal offen- der, had made his escape, he would move their Lordships to adjourn the diet against the pannels till Monday the 11th of February, by which time he hoped he would have it in his power to bring Callender to the bar. The trial was accordingly adjourned; and Mess. Robertson and Berry found bail for their appearance. EARL Of CASSILLIS. A correspondent observes, that he was surprised to find in the Caledonian Mercury of Thursday last ( 24th January) a paragraph, dating, That the heir apparent of the family and honours of Cassilis was Mr Samuel Pater- son, a clerk in the Sun Fire Office, in right of his mother, who was sister of the late Lieutenant Kennedy of the Royal Navy. The titles and honours of this family were established to be unquestionably vested in heirs- male, by the judgment of the House of Lords, 27th January 1762, in the, following words : " Upon report from the I. ords Committee for Privileges, appointed to consider of the petition of William Earl of March and Ruglen, claiming he titles and honours of Earl of Cassillis aud Lord Ken- nedy, as heir of line, and also the petition of Sir Thomas Kennedy, Bart, claiming the said title and honours, as heir- male of this family, with his Majesty's reference thereof to this House— It is resolved and adjudged, That Sir Thomas Kennedy has a right and title to the honour and dignity of Earl of Cassillis, as heir- male of the body of David the first Earl of Cassillis; aud that he hath also a right and title to the honours and dignity of Lord Ken- nedy, as heir- male of the body of Gilbert the first Lord Kennedy."— Captain Archibald Kennedy of the Royal Navy, now Earl of Cassillis, has therefore the undoubted right to the title and honours of Cassillis and Lord Ken- nedy, as being the general heir- male of the family. But even supposing that the honours of this family descendcd to heirs- female, Mr Paterson could have no claim in right of his mother, as the sisters of the last Earl left issue. On Friday last, Mrs ROBERTSON of LAdYKIRK was safely delivered of a daughter at Ladykirk. Mrs MaRGARET MURRAY, relict of the Robert Graham of Fintry, Esq died at Brigton on Thursday last. - Died at Glasgow, on the 20th inst. Miss MARGA- RET hardiE, daughter of the deceased Mr John Hardie, surgeon in that city On Saturday last Mr THOMAS MUIR younger of Hunters Hill, advocate, was served with an indict ment to stand trial before the High Court of Judi- ciary at Edinburgh upon Monday the nth Febru- ary next, for seditious practices. On the 16th inst. the Rev. NIEL DOUGLAS, late minister of the gospel, Cupar Fife, was admitted to the charge of the vacant Relief Congregation in Dundee. Melancholy accidents are still happening from mad dogs. See advertisements in next column. Friday arrived in Leith Roads, the American ship Mary, Capt.

The Second SUBSCRIPTION ASSEMBLY will be on Thursday the 31st inst. and, to continue weekly.— Non Subscribers 5s. Ireland. Extract of a letter from a gentleman at Kells, county of Meath, dated Tuesday evening, Jan. 12. " This morning a desperate engagement happened be- tween those deluded people styling themselves Defenders, and a part of the army under the command of the Rev. Mr Young, and other justices. The action happened be- tween Bailiborough and King's Court, when eighteen of these people were killed 0n the spot, and five badly wound- ed. The army at Kells, three troops of horse and one company of foot, being sent for, arrived after the party were dispersed ; that a number have been- taken prison- ers, and about 30 lodged in Cavan gaol. The army throughout, behaved in the most gallant and spirited man- ner, and continue still scouring the country." By accounts from Drogheda, we learn that a number of armed men attacked the house of a farmer named Lad- ley, at Donore, in the county of Meath, despoling, and carrying away all the fire- arms in his possession.
