This PAPER, for upwards of Seventy- three Years paft, has been, and continues to be, circulated in all the Market- Towns and populous Villages in the Counties of NORTHAMPTON, LEICESTER, NOTTINGHAM, LINCOLN, RUTLAND, HUNTINGDON, CAMBRIDGE, ant! lfte of ELY, ESSEX, BEDEORD, HERTFORD, BUCKINGHAM, BERKS, OXFORD, WARWICK, to BIRMINGHAM, STAFFORD, & C. and by the Poft to all the chief Towns in the Kingdom.— It is alfo conftantly fent to the Chapter, Rowley's, and Peele's Coffee- Houfes, London. Sunday and Tuefday's Polls. L O N D O N, February 25. ATURDAY's Gazette contains a letter from Captain Hood giving an account of his having on the nth of January, be- tween ten and eleven o'clock at night ( not knowing of the evacuation of the place) entered the port of Toulon with his Ma- jesty's frigate juno ;— the discovery of his situa- tion, and his efcape the Captain describes as fol- lows -— " By the time we had hoisted out two of our boats to warp the ( hip, a boat came along fide, after having been hailed, and we thought an- swered as if an officer had been in her; the peo- ple were all anxious to get out of her, two of which appeared to be the officers; one of them faid, he onne to inform me, it was the regulation of the port, and the commanding officer's orders, that I muft go into another branch of the har- bour to perform ten days quarantine, I kept afking him where Lord Hood's ship lay ; but his not giving me any satisfactory anfwer, and one of the midfhipinen having at the fame inllant faid, " they wear national cockades," I looked at one of their hats more stedfastly, and, by the moon- light, clearly distinguished the three colours. Perceiving they were suspected, and on my ques- tioning them again about Lord Hood, one of them replied, Soyez tranquille, Ies Anglois sont de braves Gens, nous les traitons bien; I'Admiral Anglois est sorti il y a quelque tems." It may be more easily conceived than any words can express what I felt at the moment. The circumstance of our situation, of courfe, was known throughout the ship in an instant, and saying we were all prisoners, the of- ficers soon got near me, to know our fituation. At the same time a flaw of wind coming down the harbour, Lieutenant Webly, the third lieu- tenant of the ship, said to me," I believe, " Sir, " we shall be able to fetch out, if we can get her " under, sail." T immediately perceived we should have a chance of saving the ship; at least, if we did not, we ought not to lose his Majesty's ship without some contention, I ordered every perfon to their respective Rations, and the French- men to be sent below : they perceived some bustle, two 6r three of them began to draw their sabres; 011 which 1 ordered some of the marines to take the half pikes, and force them below, which was^ foon done. 1 believe in an instant such a change in people was never seen; every officer and man was at his duty, and I do believe, within three minutes, every fail in the ship was set, and the yards braced ready for calling. The steady and a& ive assistance of Lieutenant Turner, and all the officers, prevented any confusion from arising in our critical situation. As soon as the cable was tort, 1 ordered it to be cut, and had the . cood fortune to see the ship start from the shore; the head fails were filled ; a favourable flaw of wind coming at the fame time, got good way on her. and we had then every prospect of getting out, if the forts did not disable us. To prevent our being retarded by the boats, I ordered them to be cut adrift, as ' also the French boat. The moment a brig saw us begin to loose sails, we could plainly perceive she was getting her guns readv, and we also faw lights on all the batteries. When we had shot far enough for the brig's guns to bear on us, which was not more than three ships lengths, she began to fire, alfo a fort a little on the starboard bow, and foon after all of them, on both sides, as they could bring their guns to bear. As soon as the fails were well brimmed, I beat to quarters to get our guns ready, but not with an intention of firing till we were sure of getting out. When we got abreast of the centre part of the land of Cape Sepet, I was afraid we should have been obliged to make a tack, but as we drew near the shore, and were ready, ( he came up two points, just weathered the Cape. As we passed very close along that shore, the batteries kept up as brisk a fire as the wetness of the weather would admit. When I could afford to keep the ship a little from the wind, I ordered some guns to be fired at a battery that had just opened abreast of us, which quieted them a little. We then stopped firing till we could keep her away, with the wind abast the beam, when, for a few minutes we kept up a very brisk fire on the last battery we had to pass, and which 1 be- lieve must otherwise have done us great damage. At half past twelve, being out of reach of their shot, the firing ceased : fortunately we had no person hurt. Some shot passed through the sails, part of the standing and running rigging shot away, and two French 36- pound shot, that struck the hull, was all the damage we received. SAMUEL HOOD. The French have actually begun their ope- rations, and that in a most formidable way. They advanced on the side of Maubeuge, and on the 15th a violent cannonade commenced on the Austrian out- posts. All the English troops have moved from their cantonments; and the Austrians have ad> M\ ced from Mens to the frontier. The Prince of Cobourg has been for two days at Ba- vay, and it was'thought that he would remove his head- quarters to Valenciennes, as for the pre- sent at least they must continue on the defensive . 70,000 French arc already assembled before that place, but it appears that Pichegru yet waits the arrival of cavalry. Letters from La Vendee, say, that the Royal- ists, under M. Charette have joined M. Laroche Jaquelin, and that the latter killed the Repub- lican General Moulins, with his own hands; notwithstanding the gasconading report of Bar- rere, that Moulins killed himself to avoid being taken. The Royalists increase every day. There has been another dreadful fire at Gothen bourgh, which has destroyed a great number of houses. Mr, Jefferson, the American minister who is appointed Ambassador to the Republic of France, it is said, is now 011 his passage to this country, for the purpose of demanding satisfaction for the injury done to the United States, by seizing their ships under the order of the 8th of November last ; and to make a peremptory demand of the most ample fulfilment of the articles of the peace of 1782, by a surrender of the forts on the bor- ders of Canada, and making a restitution for the damage done by Lord Cornwallis's army in the Southern States during the last war. After ful- filling his million here, he is to proceed without of time to Paris.— London Chronicle. By the New York papers of the * th of Janu- ary, it appears that the house of representatives had coma to several resolutions relative to the commerce of the United States. The objeft of thefe refolutions is to establish a reciprocity be- tween the United States and other nations : to favour thofe who most favoured them, and to put the same restrictions upon the trade of other nations which the law of thofe nations impofed upon that of America. For thefe purpofes va- rious new laws and regulations are made, and new duties laid, conformably to thefe principles; and great favour shewn to thofe nations which have formed commercial treaties with them. On Sunday, accounts were received in town by the Minerva, from Bengal, for Ostend, that the Princess- Royal Eaft- Indiaman, outward- bound, 011 the 27th of September last, near the Sunda Islands, fell in with three French frigates, and engaged them for upwards of one hour, when fhe was obliged to strike to their superior force. The carpenter was killed; the fixth Mate, and two feamen wounded. The Mate, and one of the feamen fince died of their wounds.— The French frigates were on their way to attack Batavia, but supposing the Princess- Royal to be_ a very rich jrize, they returned to the Isle of France with ier. A Dutch ship with a very valuable cargo, con- fifting of gold bars, to the value of 15,0001. 700 tons of rice, 200 tons of pepper, and a great quantity of fugar, had likewife been captured and fent to l'isle de France. Immediately upon the arrival of the Princess- Royal, they unloaded her, and fitted her out as a 50- gun fhip. The above particulars were collected from the Commander of an American vessel, that failed from l'isle de France in November laft, and put in ;. t the Cape of Good Hope. The lofs fuftained by the India Company by the capture of the Princess- Royal, is very trivial; she was laden with army and garrison stores for St. Helena, which ( lie safely delivered at that place, and was proceeding to China with the re- mainder of her cargo, consisting of lead, the ut- 1110ft amount of which does not exceed 1500I. Extract of a Letter from Leghorn, Jan. 31. The late heavy ftorm did much damage at fea : among the reft, the French frigate l'Amphi- trite, fitted out by the English, was loft. The English fleet, which lay off Corsica, was obliged to leave that fituation with fome damage, and Admiral Lord Hood arrived on the 2qth at Porto Ferrajo with the reft of his fleet, where he will wait the arrival of all the tranfports, in order to purfue the plan of operations intended : in the mean time all the Englifh veffels in this port are preparing to fail to Porto Ferrajo. " February By a vessel from Kapraja we have accounts, that Lord Hood sailed on thezd, with his whole fleet, from Porto Ferrajo, fleering towards Corsica. The English frigate, the Am- phitrite was fet fire to by the English themfelves, when they found it impossible to save her." A letter from Leghorn, dated fan. 30, fays, " O11 the 15th inft. a defperate aftion lock place off the height of Porto Vecchio between three Sardinian veffels and two Barbary xebecks. The Sardinians grappled,, and took one of 18 guns and 100 men, and alio grappled and boarded the other of 12 guns and 46 men; but fome of the crew, rather than yield, fet fire to her, and fhe blew up, but happily not before the Sardinian vessels had difengaged themfelves, and picked up the people who had been blown up, amongst whom were fome Sardinians. The crews of the Sardinian vessels were fo enraged, that they dis- patched all the Turks and Algerines whom they had taken, consisting of qz. The lofs of the Sardinians was seven men killed, & 75 wounded." An article from Lisbon dated Dec. 28, men- tions a smart fhock of an earthquake sustained there on the Friday preceding, which lafted 24 feconds, but happily without doing any damage; though the remembrance of what that city had fuffered in the laft calamity of that kind, caufed the most sensible apprehensions. In the courfe of the prefent war, from Feb. 1, 1793, to Feb. 1, 1794, a writer, who we believe is accurate, dates the captures from the French by the Englifh, according to Lloyd's books, to" be 232 ; of which feventy- five were privateers, four frigates, and three lloops. To thefe muft be added fifty- two more taken under pretended, neutral colours having French property onboard; and forty- five superior ( hips of war taken orde- rtroyed at Toulon, according to a ftatement formerly given in this paper; total, 329, of which one hundred and twenty feven were liiips of war, and 202 trading- veffels, many of them of very great value.— On the other fide, the cap- tures, by the French from the Englifn, have amounted to 332, a number which may, perhaps, furprize fome of our readers. Of thefe, 10 were privateers and two frigates; fo that the balance of fhips of war, amounts to the vaft number of 11 ? in favour of Great Britain. That the balance of Merchant- ships taken ( hould be againft us to the number of 118 ought not to furptize us, nor be any caufe of complaint or blame. when we con- fider the great and univerfal extent of the com- merce of Great Britain, compared with that of France, now nearly annihilated : according to which proportion only can a fair eftimate be made. ' Yefterday came on in the Court of King's Bench, before Lord Keynon and a fpecial Jury, an aftion, Howard v. Bingham, to recover a compenfation in damages for criminal converfa- tion with the plaintiff's wife, when the Jury found a verdift for the plaintiff.— Damages ioool. Yesterday came on, at the Sessions- houfe in the Old Bailey, the trial of Mr. Eaton the bookfeller, in Newgate- ftreet, for a libel, contained in a pamphlet, entitleel, " Hogs Wash, or Politics for the people." The libel charged was a ftory told at a debating society, of a man who kept a game cock. The indictment charged, that tinder this fable of a game cock the prefent King was in- tended, and that it was publilhed with a view to excite difaffeftion to the King and the Regal Go- vernment of this country, and toftirup { edition. The indiftment was opened by Mr. Fielding for the Crown; Mr. Gurney appeared as Counsel for the defendant. The jury found the defendant, Not Guilty. Several Resurrection- men, as they are called, were detected on Thursday, exercising their hor- rid traffic at Lambeth new burial- ground.— The next morning, great numbers of the parishoners repaired to the ground, and having learnt that fuch thefts had often been practised, were fo alarmed at the apprehenfion of their deceafed re- latives having suffered fuch a fate, that they were determined to dig up their graves, and try whether they were there or not. The confe- quences have been truly distressng; of above a hundred coffins that were examined yefterday, it is faid that all except ten or a dozen, were empty. The whole neighbourhood, during the day, was one scene of anxiety, grief, and lamentation. Saturday a Hackney Coachman who was ap- prehended in conveying dead bodies from the burial- ground in High- Street, Lambeth, was brought before the Magistrates at Union- Hall, in the Borough, for examination. At the time the coach was seized, the body of the late porter to the Archbishop of Canterbury, that of a young woman, and two children, were found in it. On Saturday evening between seven and eight o'clock died, at his house in the Exchequer, Westminster, in the 74th year of his age, the moft noble Henry Fiennes Pelham Clinton, Duke of Newcastle upon Tine and Newcaftle under Line, Earl of Lincoln, Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of the county of Nottingham, Steward, Keeper, and Guardian of the forest of Sherwood and. park of Folewood in Notting- hamshire, High Steward of East Retford, Au- ditor of his Majesty's Exchequer, Comptroller of the Customs in the port of London, High Steward of Westminster, President of the West- minster Hospital, Knight of the Garter, LL. D. and F. R. S. His Grace is succeedcd in his titles find estates by his only fon, the Right Hon. Thomas Pelham Clinton, Earl of Lincoln, now Duke of Newcastle, who is married, and has issue. HOUSE of LORDS, Friday, Feb. 21. hEssiAN TROOPS. The Ear! of Albemarle made his maiden speech. He conceived the Constitution had received a wound b" the introduction of Foreign troops into this countiv. French and Hefiians mixed together, had, under a plea of necessity, or expediency, been landed 011 the Btitilh Coalt, and Ministers fecmed to think a limple commu- nication of the fait to Parliament was fufficient. Him- felf, aware, that if a Britifh Prince had the acknow- ledged power of bringing upon any occafion, without the previous confent ot' Parliament, foreign troops into this country, our Conftitution was at an end, thought the belt meafure that could be adopted under the pre- fent circumltances for asserting the illegality of ally fuch prerogative, and to screen Minifters, would be the introduction of a Bill of indemnity, which he now brought forward, and fhould move it's l'ecoud reading on a future day. Earl Spencer, in a very mafterly fpeech of fome length, replied to all that the Noble Earl who had pre- ceded him, had introduced. lie perf'efily coincided in thofe points which alluded to the unconstitutional doctrine of a right to introduce foreign troops in the time of peace into the country without the fanCtion of Parliament— but this was not the prefent cafe. The landing of the Hessians was a mere matter of conve- nience to thofe troops, that arose out of the necessity of their cafe. He laid lie rvas glad that the meafure was brought forward ; it muft ultimately tend to pro- duce a decided opinion on the queftion ; not that he by any means meant to infiiiuate, that it was legal to in- troduce foreign troops. Legality was one tiling— ne- cessity was another. He thought it belt, therefore, at the prefent crifis, that the Bill ( hould be rejected; chiefly on the ground that: it would make no precedent for Minifters hereafter, whole intentions might be fraught with mischief. He said, he always was, and ever would be, ready to allow, tiiat the prerogative of the Crown never did, no never ought to extend to the employment of foreign auxiliaries, without the con- lent ot Parliament, it was his bound on duty to op- pole all ideas tlut had for their object fuch a doctrine ; and he would r all times Join ill bringing forward an impeachmen, againlt any Minifter who dared; to practile fuch a dodtrine. The prefent cafe, however, was widely different: liefhould therefore give sis negative to the fecund reading. The Duke of Portland, and other Lords'), took the fame ground ; and Lords Grenville & Auckland warmly opposed the motion, all'erting the propriety and lega- lity of every measure that had been taken* rEspecting thefe troops ;— they were replied to by the i ' acquis of Lansdowne, the Duke of Bedfordj and . Lord Stanhope and Lauderdale, who took the oppofite gde of the queftion; but, upon a division, the Bill Was thrown out, there being for it 12, againft it 89. HOUSE of COMMONS, Friday, Feb. 2t. HA L I F AX, & C. Mr. Sheridan brought forward his promifed motion respecting the defenceless state of Halifax- and Nova- Scotia; and in a long speech infilled upon all his for- mer assertions, that tliev had been left totally unpro- tected. he concluded by moving for the correspon dence between Government and the Governor and Commanding officer of Nova- Scotia, and alfo for a copy of a memorial, which, he understood, had been delivered on the subject from fome Nova- Scotia mer- chants to Mr. Dundas. Mr. Dundas denied the validity of Mr. Sheridan's assertions.— Nova- Scotia had been sufficiently protect- ed ; and he ihould not object to the production of the correspondence; but he wondered Mr. S. was not ashamed to ask him for a memorial only delivered that morning, which he had not had time to read, and the King had never feen. The expression ashamed occasioned fome converfation between Mr. Pitt, Mr. fox, and Mr. Sheridan; at length the latter pointing at Mr. Dundas, described him by using the expreftion of a perfon in a play, who says, " there sits a good man who is ashamed of nothing.'' 111 the courfe ot the debate Mr Grey conceiving hun- self alluded to by Mr. Dundas, as the Member under the sanction of whole privilege several letters of an alledged improper tendency had been sent into the country, ex- plained the circumstances and the causes, which were as follow: A person of the name of John Harrison, who had conceived himself to be illegally and severely treated by some of the Birmingham Magistrates, com- menced suits against them in consequence, but being unsuccessful in thefe, his circumstances were very much deranged; in this situation this person applied to him for advice, and to know if it would do him any service, was his case laid before Parliament; to which he freely gave him his opinion, that it would not. Harrison then, after recounting how he had suffered in his affairs 011 the above account, requested his assist- ance to dispose of a large parcel of Razors of his own manufacture. He then, impelled by charitable mo- tives, purehased Two Guineas Worth of these Razors from him ; and certainly, faid Mr. Grey, never were yet more Loyal Razors, as they had on one side of them inscribed " God save the King." and 11 Long live the king" on the other.—( A loud Laugh.) After this, Harrison informed him, that he belonged to the societies of Sheffield and Manchester, associated for the purpole of obtaining a universal representation of the people in Parliament, and requested his opinion on that subject--- In confequence, he laid what he could to induce him to give up for ever the idea of universal representation— but, faid Mr, Grey, he combated me lb warmly, and met me at every turn, with the arguments and opinions of that Great au- thority the Duke of Richmond, that I confess in the end I was obliged to give up the argument to him : he then requested a parcel ot " franked covers" from me, which I gave him.— Ami in thefe were, he said, en- closed the letters relative to the proceedings ot a meet- ing at the Globe Tavern, in fleet- street, and other circumstances alluded to by the Right Hon. Gentle- man, and which letters were generally signed " I am a friend to freedom, " John Harrison, a Sans- Culotte These circumstances lie thought necessary to com- municate to tile Houfe, to vindicate his character from any ill- founded or malevolent assertions, which might be trown on it on such an occasion. What had passed, with" respect to himfcif, IK- was far from being ashamed of, and he was happy that th^ opportunity was thus offered him to explain it. Monday, February 24. MuiR- and PAlMEr. preslented a petition from the Rev. F. Palmer, setting forth the alledged grievances of his cafe, complaining of the conduct of the Court by which he was convicted, & c. and praying such relief as the House in it's wisdom Ihould deem meet— On putting the question for it's being brought up ; a con- version of fome length arofe, and rather ot a desul- tory nature, between several gentlemen ;—- it was at length agreed that the debate arising 011 the question, should be adioured to Thurfday. Mr. whitbread, jun. then said, that what had just palled, as well as his former opinions oil the subject, rendered it necessary for him, in order to satisfy his conscience, to make every effort to delay the execution ot tne sentenee passed on the unfortunate gentleman in question ( a sentence, in his opinion, equally unjust and severe) at leaft until after the decision of the House should be know ii. He then moved for an Address to his Majesty, that he would be pleased to order that the execution of the sentence of transportation of Messrs Muir and Palmer ihould be suspended till after Thurfday next— Upon this adivision took place, when there appeared against the motion 104, in favour of it 34; Majority 70. education.

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. Luxembourg, Feb. 12. HE hordes of Carmagnols which af- fcmbled a few days ago on our frontiers be £ in to retreat: it is not indeed pro- bable that they could have conceived the rash project of blockading or be- lieving our fortress, the strongest bulwark. in Eu- rope. After pillaging some of our villages', they wifely retired, having been repulsed in several place's by the armed peasants. In the environs of Viston they succeeded in pillaging and burning some villages, the inhabitants having no ammu- ' tion. On Friday laft they ' came with artillery, ca- valry, and- infantry, into the , village of Meix- devant- Virton, where they burnt 14 houses ; at Harnoncour they burnt four, and at Rouvray two. In the former of thefe placcs the inhabi- tants vigorously opposed tlieir ravages. We are aflured evfcn- that a. bra've'amaxon, daughter to a chasseur, killed several Republicans with her - own hand, and-, among Others, the commander of their cavalry. Some reinforcements arriving ih time, they prevented a general pillage, and re- pulsed the patriots, who, according to their own ' acknowledgement,' had in these. different attacks • above loo men killed and wounded, all of whom ' they carried away with them. LONDON, February 27. Tjie campaign will be opened in Flanders ( in- cluding Austrians, British, Hessians, Hanoverians, and Dutch) with 55-, 000 cavalry and 170,000 in- fantry. The object of the allies will be to make themselves masters of lisle, Bouchain, Douay, and other places on the frontiers, but not to en- deavour at penetrating into the interior parts ot France. From the measures which have been taken in Flanders fince the return of General Mack, it • appears, that the siege of Maubeuge will be the first operation of the campaign ; but in this the British army will not be immediately engaged, being destined to cover the frontiers of maritime Flanders, and so prevent the diversions which would otherwise lie made by the enemy. The Combined Spanish and Portuguese troops h u e been extremely successful in the province of Roussillon during the lafl campaign. They took i or) large pieces of ordnance, exclusive of those of a small fr/. e, and fit, to" he ufed at fea ; befides ' large magazines full- of ammunition; and pro- visions of ail kinds, coats, great coats, and espe- cially bread, ' biscuit, salt- meat, flour, & c. fuf- s an army of 10,000 men for six , valenciennes. i— Thc, ' Austrians, after having re- paired the fortifications of this city, have col- lifted immense magazines of corn, hay, & e. and deposited tlieni within it's walls, as in a place of safety, The Prince it Cobourg's head- quarters are now there.— The, Austrians are fortifying Ypresin fuch a manner as. to be able to Hand a fiece, > ri cafe of an attack from the enemy. The Prince dc Cobourg removed his head- quarterS on the 20th ihfiv to Valenciennes. The head- t| natters of the British army are at Courtray. )' f the accounts from Paris may be Credited, the royalists of ,1 a Vendee have lately been beaten in three different engagements. In one of them a. body of four thoufand men were defeated, with the loss of eight hundred in killed, and their celebrated leader, Roche Jaqueline slain. the Butchers in Paris are denounced and im- prisoned, as Assassins, for murdering sheep big with lamb. This may serve to show'the necessity to which the parisians are driven for provisions ; and the affectation of condemning the Butchers is not very likely to produce plenty. A dreadful epidemical disease is raging in the hospital of bensancon, in the ci- devant Province of franche Comte, in France: forty to fifty in- dividuals, are daily carried off by it; fourteen physicians have already fallen victims to this dif- temper; The frequent ufe of the juice of lemon is tlii only antidote againft it, by which the in- habitants of the town have escaped it'sinfeftjon. " On th. e 31st, inst. Elizabeth Capet delivered a worn- Out thimble to the officer of the police, who' visited the prisoners in the temple, and de- sired to have another that was useful.. The coun- cil finding it to was gold, ordered it to be sold,, and another thimble .0f copper, or ivory, to be given in exchange to the woman Elizabeth ! At' Bourdeaux, the executions are fo many, that the permanent guillotine is enlarged to fuch a size, that the axe strikes off 7 heads at one flroke. It is faid, that the famous Dick England, who fled from this country on account of the death of Mr. Rowls, whom he killed in a duel, has been guillotined at Boulogne. All the French East- Indiamen, expected this season, have escaped the vigilance and activity of our cruisers in the channel. Ten have arrived at Port L'Orient in perfect safety with all their cargo.— Thu. the dilemma, which the French have some time experienced respecting the want » f saltpetre, will very eassily be removed, and the manufa cture of powder accelerated. At a late meeting of the colonels of the militia regiments it was determined to increafe the mi- litia one- fifth more, than what it's present esta- blishmeiit is, by an additional number of pri- vates to each company ; but whether thefe men are to lie railed by fresh ballot, or by volunteer companies, as was done laft war, is not yet finally agreed, upon. _ • <. - > The Militia regiments are not only to be en- creafed ip their compliment of men, bat are alfo to have, an addition of Horse Artillery to each regiment. The office of Auditor of the Exchequer, held by the late Duke of. Newcastle, was suppofed to bring him in at leaft 14,0001. a year, arising from a poundage on the sums audited at the Exchequer; but bv an act of parliament passed some years ago, a fixed salary of 4000I. SS annexed to the of- fice., without anv . fees or poundage whatever : this regulation, however, did not affect the late Duke, as it was to take place only at his death. Monday there was a meeting of the West- India Planters and Merchants, at the London Tavern, which was very fully attended.— T( ie subjects for discussion were ftated by Lord Penryhn, ( the chairman) to be the Foreign Slave Trade Bill now before the House of Commons'; & the late decree of the National Convention, for the general emancipation of the Slaves in the French Colonies. — A petition was produced by Mr. Bryan Ed- wards, which with some additions, was approved, and the petition ordered to be engrossed'— The meeting then proceeded to the consideration of the late decree, and fome proceedings in the ifland of St. Domingo, on the fubjeft of which, Mr. Edwards read some curious papers from that island, in one of which, it is expressly asserted that if Sir Charles Grey had been at that time in thofe. seas, the whole of the French part of St. Domingo would have surrendered without a strug- gle' He concluded by moving for a committee to wait on his Majesty's ministers, to represent the danger and ill policy of removing from our sugar islands any part of the force now stationed there, ' tween the French islands and those of Great- Britain, even though fome of the former may be captured by our arms. The continuance of the slave trade was limited in the American States to the year 1800. Another curtailment of it's duration took place in the American Congress, oh the motion of Mr. Bou- zanet, on the 2d- of January last. His motion ' went to terminate the duration of slavery on that " Continent in - iz months from that day. An amendment was proposed to extend the interval to 21 months, the amended motion, after fome dehate, was carried unanimously. The affair of gallantry determined in the court of King's Bench, 011 Monday, Howard v. Bing- ham, seems to be one of those unfortunate cases which may be attributed more to the effects of parental authority than to any depravity of dif- position in the parties. The circumstances were briefly thefe : Previous to the marriage of Mr. Howard with this lady, the daughter- of Lord Faulconberg, Mr. Bingham paid his addresses to her with such success as to have engaged her af- fectons, tlviugh in compliance to the solicitations of her family, she was induced to give her hand to Mr. Howard. The effects of the constaint under which she acted, were immediately mani- fested to her husband, by a reserve of a very sin- gular nature, which it would be difficult to ex- plain, with sufficient delicacy in a a public print. A mutual dissatisfaction at last brought 011 an agreement to a separation, after which it was ad- mitted , that she went to Mr. Bingham, and they cohabited as man and wife. A Shropshire Squire declared the other even- ing in Peek's Coffee houfe, that the Resurrection- men had become fo audacious, that he would have himself buried alive, with a pair of pistols, to be revenged of the rascals, if they dared scrape him up after he was. dead ! bon Mot. A person was saying the other day, before a celebrated writer, " that the modern French were a compound of the monkey and the tyger."—" Pray, Sir, what have those poor animals ever done to deserve the comparison^" was the reply. GLOUCESTER, Feb. 24. On Wednesday night the wife of John Syms, of Standish, in a fit of resentment against her husband, who threa- tened to inform fome neighbouring farmers that she had stolen milk from their cows, rose in the middle of the night while- her husband was fast asleep, and having melted part of a pewter plate, attempted to pour the hot metal into- her hufband's ear and mouth. It happened fortunately, that very little of the pewter went into his ear, but his face and mouth are so terribly burnt,, that he is a sad spectacle, and is now under the care of the surgeons at Our infirmary. The woman has ab- sconded, and has taken her youngest child with her. llie child was in bed with it's father, and by it's screams and cries the'man supposes it was burnt by the melted pewter thrown upon him. The man is- likely soon to recover the injury he has received. BATH, Feb. 26. Tuefday, died at Hinton, near Hereford, the Rev. Mr. Williams, son of Mr. Williams, of Lansdown road. The circum- Itances attending bis death ate peculiarly distress- ing: he had come to Hinton, for the purpose of being united to a very amiable young lady; the licence was procured, and every preliminary set- tled, when the morning fixed for the celebration of their nuptuals, fatally proved the day of his death! Mr. Sheridan support of what had fallen from Mr. Adam, contended that, the precedent. of professional taxation, v as a had one-— as well might the Bar, and Physicians bo taxed; but if thev, and other profes- sionS were taxed, the event would show that such pro- ceedings were grounded on a false principle. After which the different clauses of the bill were agreed to by the Committee, and tlie Houfe resuming, ordered the report to be reeeived on Monday.

SLAVE TRade. Two petitions'were presented from the merchants of Liverpool againlt the bill now pending in Parliament. Mr. Wilberforce moved the order of the day tor the second reading of the bill to prevent the importation of slaves into foreign colonies in British vessels. . Sir william young reprobated the bill, as fraught with equal injury to the british trade, and to ran- quility of the islands. He laid it made part ot tka grand system of the abolition, and would alii It the French Convention in the objects of their late decree. He concluded by moving that it be read a third time this day lix months. Mr. Alderman Newnham seconded the motion, and faid the/ bill would- defeat it's own end; for.' while'we. lost our own trade, not a slave the less would be im- ported to tlie foreign islands, which would be supplied by others. • .- ' 1 mr. j. vaughan was in favour of the motion. If the bill were carrried into elicit it wonld enable the French to diilciiiiiiate the principles of their deitruttive freedom. , Mr. jenkinson said- a few words in opposition to the measure. mr. Fox rose fo give his decided approbation-' to the meafurc; he refuted the arguments of the Gentlemen who spoke again it the committal of the bill, and re- probated the delay which the bulinefs had experienced in the House of Lords. His speech was a recapitulation of what has been often fubniitted to the p. ublic, and very widely discussed. Mr. Pitt' supported the bill in a short speeeh ; he faid, that, what had taken place in the French islands, which was of a piece with the rest of. their ridiculous and absurd policy, would operate as an inducement with him to promote rather than to retard the prefent measure as the apprehended danger could only apply with respect " to- the Negroes, it would therefore be po- litic not to encrease the number of those as every in- crease would multiply the means and instruments of danger; and it was well known, that the' newly- im- ported slaves were always the most remarkable for their refractory conduct; in this - point of view, setting aside every other unannwerable argument, which had been already advanced in favour of the measure— he would support the bill. colonel Tarleton laid a few words against the meafure. Colonel Cawthorne supported his opposition to the bill, by reading a letter irom the West Indies, which stated, that our enemies were endeavouring to stir up disturbance, by secret emissaries. Lord Sheffield Obferved, the houfe was mistaken if they thouglit the foreign trade annihilated, it still ex- isted in a very great degree.

The Iloufe rcfolvecl itfelf into a Committee on this Tax Bill, mr. Hobart in tile chair. The consideration of the different clauses and provi- sions of tile Bill in the. Committee, was' accompanied by much desultory dehate, principally between Messrs. Joliffe, Sheridan, Adam, , Sir wm. Dolben, Messrs. Pitt, and Rose— in the course of which it appeared that such Clerks as were Articled to Attomies, pre- vious to the jth instant, were to be exempted from the tax. Sir W. Dolben: wished that tile exemption should ex- tend to such Clerks as their parents might with to article to themselves. Mr. Pitt objected to such an idea, as tending totally to do away the effect of the tax. Mr. Adam contended that the tax, in the mode propOfed, Would go to disgrace a very useful profession in the eyes of the Public, & among which were several as reputable persons as in any other class of society ; in point of regulation, and towards it's alledged end, he asserted. it would be insufficient, as it went- to tax, promiscuously, the whole, good of bad; it was, in fact, a capitation tax, and he was Af opinion that the Legislature ought to be very cautious in doing any thing which might degrade fo useful a body of men, in the public estimation--- in a general view, therefore, he ex- prelfed his disapprobatlon of the measure. Mr. Pitt admitted that in so numerous a profession, there certainly were to be found several respectable members, and in order to render that respectabillty more general, was the principal end of the present tax, as it would go to exclude persons in indigent circum- stances from becoming members of the profession, who could not qualify themselves with- toe essential requi- lite of a liberal education; and with respect to the novelty of such a meas'ure, such an objection could not apply, as observed, several bodies of men, for instance, and certain were already subjects ' of taxation.

A Message was received from the Lords, that ' heir Lordships had agreed to feveral public and private Bills, among which was the French Pro- perty Bill, with amendments.— The amendments in theFrench Property Bill were taken into con- fideration ami agreed to.

REV. MR. pALMER's PETITION. The order of the day being read, for refuming the adjourned debate, on the<) ueftion for receiv- ing the Petition of the Rev. Thos. Fische Palmer: Mr. Sheridan said, that agreeable to the notice, ft such the House had received of his intentions, ami possessed of time to take into confident turn fhe propriety and justice of receiving the Petition, lie had no doubt of it's being received. Mr, Pitt( after a few obfervations, agreed to it's feeing received. Mr, Sheridan then moved, that the Petition may lie on the Table; which was agreed to. L O N D O N. March i. Yesterday Lord Grcnville was sworn in Auditor of the Exchequer, in the room of the late Duke of Newcastle; his Lordship afterwards took pos- session of his office. Loid Auckland is to succeed Lord Grenville as Secretary of State for the foreign department, and Mr. Villiers, brother to the Earl of Clarendon, will succeed him as Ranger of Hyde and St. Jame's Parks. ft is faid that the Marquisate of Rockingham will be revived in the person of earl Fitzwilliam. " Various reports are again in circulation respect- ing the Royalists, none however that can be re- lied on— the truth may probably be this:— On their retreat from Noirmoutier, which might be effected with no great loss in numbers, they en- camped themselves in great strength, in the im- penetrable woods which abound in that part of France where they are, from whence, during the little bad weather there, lias been this winter, they made occasional sallies to supply themselves with provisions, fee. Since the season has opened more favourable, they have been joined by a num- ber of new converts to their cause, the relatives aud friends perhaps of those who have suffered under the revolutionary axe, and are now become of sufficient strength again to take the field with renovated tripes of fuccefs.— Whether they will ultimately obtain if, does not reft fo much upon any movements they may be induced to make to penetrate immediately to Paris, as upon that which may go to effect a junction with the troops of England at fome port, through which ufeful supplies may be liberally furnished. Certain it ' the Earl of Moira holds the ccmmand of the armv originally deftined for this expedition, with the fame views as form'erly. A great stroke, we understand, is to be struck early the ensuing Spring; but whether on the Rhihe, the Moselle,. or in Flanders, is at present uncertain.— Perhaps it may take place in all three, and tile more,. as the faying is, the better. It may at least' serve to deter the enemy from th; ir romantic scheme of invading this country indeed,' tliey really mean it " mention :— A few years ago, Captain Hood being 1 stationed at Jamaica, perceived, in the morning after a night of grear tempest, a ship at distance falling to pieces, with . three men fastening them- selves. to a. rafter in order to save their lives.— Touched with companion at such a fight, he pro- posed putting out the- boat to their assistance. The men at first remonstrated, an account of the imminent danger from the great swell of aea. The Captain, however, was resolure, observing, at the fame time, " that he would press no danger 011 them he would not partake himself," and springing into the boat, afked who Would follow him.— In an instant the boat was manned, and they reached the three unhappy men just in time to save their lives.— This story was told in Ja- maica, as it should be told; and the House of Representatives were fo sensible of the gallantry of the action, that they voted a present of two hundred pounds to the brave deliverers. Irish Budget — In the Irish House of Commons 011 the 12th, the Chancellor of the Exchequer rofe to open his budget, stating, that of the fum of 8oo, oool. found necessary for the exigencies of the year, he fhould propose to raise only ioo, oool. by the following new taxes: .

These taxes all. met the approbation of the houfe, except the tax on leather, which Mr. Van- deleur disapproved, as exacting a tax on shoe- lea- ther from a bare footed people! Other members considered the tax. a'good one, as it would pre- vent the frauds now practised in the imperfect tanning of leather. American Budget.— The American minister, in open- ing his budget,- laid before the House of Reprefentatives a detail of the whole expence of their government, as follows : Mrs. WATTS tAKES the Liberty of informing the - u- GOVERNORS of the GENERAL INFIRMARY, whole Votes And Interest have been solicted in her Favour, That from the Encouragement ( he has re- ceived, arid by the Advice of her Friends, it her I n- tention to offer herself a Candidate tor MATRON to the HOSPITAL, on the earliest Vacancv, when ( lie presumes to hope for their Support, and carly Atten- dance on the Day of Election.

The dreadful fire which broke out at Gotten- burgh, on the 4th inlhut, began juft oppofird the tmyn- houfe, which had a narrow efcape; the flames and heat reached it from the other fide of the canal, and nothing but the moft ftrenuous exertions could hai'c faved it. It is computed that from 100 to 120 houfes have been confumed, and upwards of 2000 people loft their all in the fpaoe of ten hours: fortunately none of the Bri- tifli have suffered. By letters from Italy we learn, that a molt dreadful accident happened lately at Cape d'istria. The Dancers and Singers of the Opera. having met at the Opera- house to celebrate the . Carnival, the house came suddenly down, and crushed the players and the whole audience to atoms. Fox hounds are now kept by the British Na- bobs in India, in a greater style than any of packs in England: though they sometimes hunt the fox, their principal runs are with the jackals, who have great speed, and generally afford an excellent chace: the field, in general, is a fine spectacle, exhibiting, at least, a hundred horse- men, all mounted on beautiful Arabians.

This avowal explains what Marat meant, when he declared last winter in the Convention, that 240,000 people must yet be sa- crificed before the Revolution will be complete, the rich will doubtless be all massacred or ruined ; and when their funds are squandercd away, which the Convention will soon effect, by the immense expences incurred in raising such nume- rous armies, to support their ill- gotten power, what will become of the poor people, when there, arc no manufactories, 110 trade 01- navigation to employ them; and when the nation is bereft of all the people of fortune ; who, .011 the return of peace, would have furnished means to set the people to work, and to bring about again those sources of industry for the pool, which had been interrupted and nearly deitroyed by the pressure of the war.

YESTERDAY evening Mr. Sparrow, the Meffenger, arrived at the Secretary of State's Oflice with difpatches from the army. The head- quarters of the Britifh troops are ftill at Courtrai; tliofe of the Prince de Cobourg at Valenciennes. No event of importance has yet happened; but the French have rather advanced within the few laft days, and their picquets and thofe of the Allied Armies are fo near each ether as to con- verfe together. The French seem disposed to make the firft attack. The Duke of York will certainly leave town to- morrow night for the army. Thursday an account was received at Lloyd's Coffee- house of the arrival of Admiral Sir John Jervis and Sir Charles Grey, in the Boyne man of war, with the Quebeck frigate, and three tranfports, at Barbadoes, on the 5th of January The reft of the fleet, except two or three tranf- ports, alfo arrived there between the Jth and 14th of the feme month. The whole force consists of three large ships of war, feveral frigates, ( loops, Sec. with upwards of sixty sail of transports. The troops in the other British islands had been collected in Barbadoes, expecting the arrival of Sit Charles Grey, and after refreshing the troops from Europe, they were all embarked to trie amount of 10,000 men, and were to aail on an expedition again It the French ialands, within 48 hours after the departure of the veaafel, which brought this account. Thus we may daily ex- pedt to hear of the capture of Martinique, one of the most . valuable islands belonging : to tile French in the west Indies. It is now supposed, that on the opening of the campaign in Europe, fhe firft movements of the Allies will be accompanied by a declaration of hostilities againft all thofe powers which fhall per- fift in their neutrality, as it goes to counteract more than actual war in defence of France, the meafures adopted by the nations engaged in the general league.— Of the above powers, Genoa, it is supposed, will remain the most obstinate. Denmark and Sweden, it is understood, will ac cede to the proposed terms. The blockade of the principal port of the former State continues, and the troops are moving in every direction to enforce obedience to the next summons, which will. be addressed to the Republic on the part ot the allies.

TO preferve Health, & of C'ourfe to prolong Life, nothing is fo necelTary as an Attention to tliofc flight Indifpolitions to which all Men are fubjedt, arid which by being confidered as trifling are too often difrccarded, till by Negleft they take deep Root in the ( onfiitution, and become of fenous and fomstimes fatal Confluence. Thefe Complaints, whether the Caufeof them be a Cold, Excsfs of Eating or Drinking, Fatigue of Boc'v or Mind, a too aftive or too fedtntary Life, a gouty or bilious Difpofition, & c. Sec. are generally d. fcovered hi fome Obltrudtions in the minute Vetfels, or by fome I3efe£ t in the natural Secretions.— As a Remedy for thete Pvils. the celebrated INVENTOR OF THE FEVER POW- Vek compofcd his AN ALEPTIC PILLS, & lie exhibited in* iiimfelf a memorable Inftance of their Efficacy; lor by the content Ufe of them, though a tree Liver, he at- tained to the Age of feventy- five. The ' Pendency of thefe Pills is to open the Pores by Night and the Body by Day. They remove Obftruc- tions, promote Sleep, and they require neither Con- finement nor Attention to Diet. I Hey are alfo an ad- mirable Remedy for Rheumatic Diforders, for the Head- Ach, and for thofe Complaints to which the Female Sex * Thev fliould betaken on the firft Attack of a Cold, and noon all Occafions of Uneafinefs or lndifpofition, and ( 1 uiild never be omitted at Bed Time after any Excels.

Edge, at Northampton. _ being over- heated at a Ball, I got a difagreeable Ralh all over my Frame, efpecially in my Face, which deprived me of feeing Company. I always entertained great Elteem for the Skill of my Physicians, being both Men of Eminence. My Diforder, however, inftead of diminifhing, increafed upon me, and, perhaps through the conftant Agitation of Mind, threw me into Fits. By the extra Advice of the late Dr. Hunter, 1 under- took a Voyage to Bengal, to my Brother, Major M'G r, but to no Purpose, for the Fits ceased, and brought on another Complaint. The Humour fell in my Legs and tormented me with large Sores,— I came back to'England, and went to Weymouth, where 1 found but little Relief. I was then foliated by our Friend Dr. Johnson to try Bath; when Dr. H. candidly told me his Endeavours were fruitless- ln- theCourfe of my being in the two laft Places, I was frequently told of many aftonifhing Cures performed by Dr. BRODUM's BOTANICAL SYRUP, but 1 always looked upon it as erroneous. My Friends per- fuaded me, fince the Faculty had pronounced me in- curable, there could be no Danger in trying your Medi- cines. 1 confulted my Phyficians on the Occafion, and they undertook to analyze the Syrup, which they did, and declared they could not difcover any Thing dif- cordant in their chemical Operation to my Complaint. I fent accordingly to Mr. Bacon, of Oxford- Street, tot your Medicines, and am, after a fhort Course of Appli- cation, as well as ever 1 was in my Life. I am now on a Tour to Ireland, for my Friends to partake in my Happinefs of being reftored to Health again : O11 my Return 1 will do myself the Pleasure of waiting on you at your House.
