the St. James s OR, BRITISH Chronicle; EVENING- POST. Price FOUR- PENCE HALF- PENNY. J From SATURDAY, MAY 16, to TUESDAY, MAY 19, 1795- 5835) MONDAY, May 18. From the LONDON GAZETTE, of Saturday, May 16. WHITEHALL, May 16. THE King has granted unto Martin Kemp, of Tower- Hill, London, son of Mar- tin Kemp, of Pool, in Dorsetshire, his Royal Li- cense and Authority that he and his issue may take the surname of Welch in addition to that of Kemp, in compliance with the ___ wish of his maternal uncle George Welch, esq. of London, Banker. The King has also granted unto Hugh Whitelock, of Hoddesdon, in Hertfordshire, Gent, his Royal License and Authority that he and his issue may as- sume and take the surname and bear the Arms of Hughes only, in compliance with an injunction in the last Will and Testament of his maternal grand- father Hugh Hughes, late of Hoddesdon aforesaid, Esq. deceased. Downing- street, May 16. The Lord Chancellor has appointed Thomas Jarman, of Bristol, Gent, to be a Master Extraordinary in the High Court of Chancery. Extract of a letter from Capt. Sir Richard Strachan, of his Majesty's ship Melampus, dated Grouville Bay, Jersey, May 11, 1795, to Evan Nepean, Esq. Secretary to tbe Admiralty. I have the honour to acquaint you, for their Lord- ships information, that Sir Sydney Smith, with the ships under his command, joined me on the 8th inst. at noon. About three o'clock in the morning of the 9th we discovered 13 sail coming from the Northward along shore. I made the signal to weigh; the squadron weighed and gave chase, the wind being off the land, and the enemy's vessels running along shore to the Southward. About six o'clock the Melampus got near enough to fire upon the headmost vessels, but they all, except a cutter, which escaped round Cape Carteret, ( our gun- boats net being arrived at the rendezvous) got close in shore, under a small battery, protected by their armed vessels, a brig and lugger. I made the signal for the boats to assemble on board this ship for the purpose of boarding them, and worked the Melam- pus in to cover the attack, soon followed by the other ships as they came up, firing upon the enemy's battery and gun- vessels in succesiion. The enemy soon abandoned their vessels, and the boats of the squadron boarded and got them all off, except one small sloop, which was burnt, the tide having left her. About this time the battery ceased to fire. I beg to take this opportunity to acknowledge the assistance I have received from the zeal and activity of the Captains under my direction upon all occa- sions, and particularly upon the present; and also to observe that the manner in which the Lieutenants of the different ships boarded and brought off the ves- sels of the enemy does them infinite honour as Officers, the First Lieutenant of the Melampus bearing a conspicuous part; and the boats crews and different ships companies acted with their usual courage. , The accompanying is a list of the killed and wounded on board the different ships, and also a list of the vessels of war and Convoy taken. I have the honour to be, Sir, your most humble and obe- dient servant, R. j. StRACHAN, Return of Killed and Wounded. Melampus. 1 Petty officer and 7 seamen wounded. Diamond. 1 seamen wounded. Hebe.

Fouquiar Tinville, the' Publick Accuser during the period of Robespierre's power,, has been con- demned to death, and executed at Paris, together with his accomplices. If there were no objections to a Republican form of Government so near home as France, with re- spect to its influence on this country in time of Peace, there would still exist a particular objection to it, in the case of the country before us, from the very deprived morals of the people. The advocate for Republicks have always contended that more virtue is necessary in their favourite system of Go- vernment than in a Monarchy. Does this extra- ordinary virtue exist ? The most pleasing accounts are received from dif- ferent parts of the kingdom, that from the pro- mising appearance of the grain in the ground, the farmers are bringing wheat to market in large quantities, and the prices are in consequence reducing apace. HAIR- POWDER TAX. " STAMP- OFFICE, SOMERSET- PLACE, 5th May, 1798. HI S Majesty's Commissioners for Managing the Stamp Duties, do, in pursuance of " An Act for " granting to his Majesty a Duty on Certificates issued " for using Hair- Powder, wbicb commences on the 6tb Jay of May inst. hereby give notice to every person using or wearing Hair- Powder, that they have appointed the following Offices or Places for granting such Certificates, viz. The Head Office in Somerset- Place, for persons residing in the Parishes of St. Mary- le- Strand, St. Clement Danes, St. Paul, Covent- Garden, St. Giles in the fields, St. George, Bloomsbury, the Liberty of the Rolls, Lincoln's- Inn, and the Temple. City District, at No. 50, Lombard- street, London, for per sons residing within the City of London, and the Liberty of St. Martin- le- Grand. For the District of the Tower- Hamlet, Liberties and Pre- cincts thereof, with Bethnal- Green, and Parts adjacent, at No. 35, Wellclose- square. For tbe Westminster District, including the Parishes of St. Martin in the Fields, St. Margaret, St. John, St. James, St. Anne Mary- le- bone, St. George Hanover- square, and Pad- dington, at No. 3, Terrace, Spring- Garden, and No. 296, Oxford- street, near Bond- street.

And the Distributor of Stamps for the adjacent Counties of Middlesex, Essex, Kent, and Surrey, have appointed an Office in most of the Towns or large Villages, in those Districts, far the convenience of persons residing beyond the said limits, and within ten miles of the Head Office, in Somerset- Place. N. B. On some visible part of the front of those Offices, the words— OFFICE APPOINTED TO GRANT HAIR- POWDER CERTIFICATES, will be painted, for general information. At all which Offices or Places, the persons applying for the said Certificates will be furnished gratis, with the proper printed form of the Entry, required by the Act, to be filled up in writing, and delivered in, previoufly to the issuing of any Certificates. And the Commissioners do hereby give further notice, that they have duely authorised tbe Head Distributors of Stamps in the different Counties of the Kingdom, to execute this business by themselves and their Deputies. The former of whom tbe Commissioners have directed to publicity advertise, as early as possible, an account of tbe Offices and Places in their respective Districts, for the said purpose, in the News- papers usually circulated in the neighbourhood thereof, With the names of the Deputies the faid Head Distributors have appointed to superintend the same. And to prevent mistakes, the Commissioners think it right to apprise the Publick, that a Duty of ONE POUND AND ONE SHILLING only, is to be paid for each Cer. tificate; which Sum will be expressed, by a Stamp, on each Certificate-, and that NO MORE IS TO BE DE- MANDED OF ANY PERFON upon taking out a Certi- ficate for using or wearing of Hair- Powder, upon any pretence whatever; except where there are more than two unmarried Daughters in one Family ; in which case a double Certificate, stamped with two Stamps of One Found One Shilling each, is required to be taken out. Daily attendance will be given at the above Offices, till further notice, from ten o'clock till three. N. B. No person will be liable to the penalties of this Act, who shall take out a Certificate within a Month from the commoncement thereof. By order of tbe Commissioners, JOHN BRETTELL, Sec. 18th May: N. B. IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE NOTICES, the Cammissioners think it expedient to caution the Publick, that every person, who since the $ tb day of May instant, has worn Hair- Powder, IS LIABLE TO THE DUTY OF ONE GUINEA, and required to take out a stamped Certificate of that value; at the expiration of one month from that day, A PENALTY OF TWENTY POUNDS will attach upon person who shall use. and wear Hair- Powder without taking out a Certificate fcr the same; and that if Informations are then tendered against offen- ders, the Commissioners cannot, confidently with their duty, refuse to receive them, and to direct Prosecutions accordingly. To prevent which, and that persons may be accommo- dated with the least inconvenience and delay, it is earnestly recommended to such as require Certificates, to provide themselves therewith immediately, by applying at such of the Offices above- mentioned, as are respectively appointed for persons residing within those different districts ; and if the parties applying could make it con- venient previously to furnish themselves with the Forms of Entry, which ere issued, gratis, at the said Offices, and deliver them in properly filled up, it is presumed that it would greatly facilitate the business of taking out Cer- tificates, by shortening tbe time of waiting, and pre- venting that embarrassment, which, from the numerous applications that may be expected to he made for them towards the close of the month, will otherwise unavoid- ably occur. - ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, 18th April, 1795.

THE RESTORATIVE BALSAM is of singular service in Disorders and Indispositions, where the Strength is impaired, or where the other parts are too much relaxed ; for this reason it is good in Weaknesses of the Brain and Nerves; Imbecility of the Memory and Senses, and in all cases where the Parts are to be strengthened. " Drinking too much Tea, of other watery Liquors, excess of Pleasures, and every thing that tends to relax or weaken the Body, dispose it to nervous Diseases, which do not only affect the Body, but the Mind also suffers, and is often rendered ex- tremely weak and peevish. Nervous Disorders also proceed from intense Study, Grief, Disappointment, unwholesome Air, want of Sleep, great Fatigue, Anxiety, & c." The Reader will therefore reflect on the importance of this Restorative Balsamic Medicine, which imparts strength and vigour to all parts of the . Body, and totally re- establishes the whole Nervous System. .

To His GRACE TIIE DukE OF PORTLAND, May it please your Grace, . HAVIng been long convinced of the necessity of a Reform in Parliament. we whose associa- tion is now announced to you, should think our- selves highly culpable, were we to omit any oppor- tunity of calling the attention of our. countrymen, to the causes of their present calamities, which must continue to increase, unless the renovating hand of Reform be speedily and effectually applied in asso- ciating., for this Reform, so necessary for our preser- vation, happiness, and even existence, as a free and independent Nation, though convinced we are sub- jecting ourselves bys such association to the lying tongues • of and detraction ; but. that our at the root of the be fallacious and principles may be clearly aad unequivocally under- stood, especially by those entrusted with the care of the publick. tranquillity, we think it right to de- clare, that after the most mature deliberation, we are convinced the excellent plan laid down and so ably supported by the Duke of Richmond, is the only one really practicable, and adequate to the exigency of the times-; all other Reforms being, mere palliatives, as not striking . evil, must, we are assured, nugatory. _ . And though determined to persevere in the ho- nourable pursuit, legal, peaceable; aud constitutional, shall be the only means employed by us for its at- tainment, and as our pursuits and means are honest and laudable, we despise secrecy and deceit, there- fore to convince you that Our professions are sincere, should be happy to receive any person or persons, deputed by his Majesty's Ministers, to inspect our proceedings, hoping from this openness and candour, they would appoint those whose moral character would sec are us from misrepresentation and treachery, with respect to the terms jacobin and Levellers,, which have been so lavishly bestowed on the Friends of Reform,- we shall only declare we hold in equal abhorrence, a Jacobin faction and Levelling system, our only aim being to restore to our country its just and Constitutiinal Rights, by rescuing it from the tyrannical usurparion of an over- bearing Aris- tocracy. JOHN BONE, Sec. Committee- Room, No. 8, Weston- street, Borough, May 11, 1795 PROTEST. HOUSE OF LORDS'. DIE VENERIS, 8 MAY, I795. THE Order of the Day being read for the Lords to be summoned, MOVED, " That an humble Address be presented to his Majesty, that his Majesty will be graciously pleased to direct, that there be laid before this House, such part of the correspondence between his Majesty's Ministers and Lord Fitzwilliam, late Lord- Lieu- tenant of Ireland, as relates to the motions and grounds of his recall from the Government of the faid Kingdom, during a session of Parliament, in which the two Houses of Parliament had voted their confidence in him, and their approbation of his conduct, and with a munificent unexampled, had granted supplies for the general exigencies of the State." Which being objected to, after a debate, the question being put thereupon, ' Resolved in the Negative; Contents. E. Derby Proxie tetters chesterfield Non. Contents Proxies DISSENTIENT, Because the removal, in the midst of a session of Parliament, of such an Officer of the Crown, as a Lord- Lieutenant of Ireland, the immediate and sole Representative of his Majesty in that kingdom, under the circumstances, is singular, perhaps unpre- cedented. The effeCts of that bold and unusual measure, especially in the present critical state of affairs, cannot be indifferent. It is a sriCt notorious, and not contradicted, that the House of Lords and the House of Commons of that Kingdom did, at the momeat of his recall, direCtly and explicitly, in a solemn vote and resolution of each House, de- clare their confidence in the Lord- Lieutenant, It ii a fact equally notorious, and equally uncontra- dicted, that these Votes of Confidence from both Houses of the Irish Parliament were in perfect con- formity to the opinions and wishes of all descriptions of tiie People of that Nation. Becaufe a strong charge of Malversation in office, supported by clear proof, or strong presumption, ought to be produced to weigh against these solemn teStimonies of a Parliament, and those declared opinions of a People, and to justify a proceeding, the inevitable tendency of which is to produce dis- satisfaCtion and discord amongst his Majesty's sub- jects in that kingdom. That the proceeding itself j. within the Prerogative, there is n0 doubt; but there is not a doubt also that this House is compe- tent to an enquiry into all advice given to the Crown with regard to the use of that Prerogative, and that it is it: duty to make such enquiry in any event by which his Majesty ' s honour or interest, or the tranquillity, concord, and union of the Empire, and its common effort against the common Enemy may be affected. Because the Peers are bound by their own honour to examine with a more strict scrutiny into the con- duct, and to animadvert with greater severity into the misdemeanors of those of their own body, fo they owe a peculiar protection to such Peers, as on enquiry they shall find in . the exercise of the high Prerogative of the Crown, to have demeaned them- selves uncorruptly; to the satisfaCtion of the People, with a diligent attention to the functions of their Charge and with duty, zeal, and fidelity to their Sovereign. Because Earl fitzwilliam, the Lord- Lieutenant, did voluntarily solicit, in this House, the production of all such documents as might furnish matter for a full and impartial inquiry into his conduCt. Because it does, not appear, that the Earl in ques- tion, during his AdMinistration in Ireland, did in any degree subvert, impair, or weaken, any one of the Legal Prerogatives of the Crown, or abuse them to the prejudice of the Subject, in any instance whatever. That in. the arrangements proposed, with regard to Office, either in removals or appoint- ments, it does not appear that the efficacy of his Majesty's Government, or the popularity' of his Majesty's measures, were at all impaired, or the unanimity and harmony of the Nation disturbed, or the confidence in his Majesty's Government as administered by him, in any degree Whatsoever Because the Unanimity and zeal in his Majesty's service-, which , appeared, throUghout that kingdom, was owing to the hope held out that such arrange- ments as. the Lord. Lieutenant proposed, would take place ; namely, such as tended to demonstrate that those, in whom the Nation reposed much confidence, had obtained the Confidence of his Majesty's Chief Governour; that those who had the misfortune NOT to obtain the publick confidence, or at least not to obtain it in the same degree, were not to be predominant in the efficient offices in the kingdom. Because the persons 0n account of their general estimation in that country, who were taken into the confidence of the late Lord- Lieutenant, had, previous to his Government, given the most striking and unequivocal proofs of their attachment to Great- Britain.' " Because it appeared in the debate, that one of the matters of discussion between his Majesty's confiden- tial servants, and the said Lord- Lieutenant, had arisen on account of a Bill intended to be introduced into the Parliament of Ireland, by Mr. Grattan, " for the further relief of his Majesty's Catholick subjects in that kingdom." if late Lord lieu- tenant gave countenance to any measure repugnant to that service, and ' defiance to that authority, and positive instruCtions given by his Majesty's Ministers here, it forms a- matter ot Constitutional discussion in this House. upon that point Earl Fitzwillian has alledged, that he is ready to put himself upon the judgement of this House. Because it appears, from several years past, to have been the policy of his Majesty's British Coun- cils, with regard to Ireland, and of the Parliament of that Kingdom, to remove the several Civil re- straints which had been made in consequence of religious differences; for all offices had been open to Protestant Dissenters, without any limitation whatever, by the repeal of the Test in that Kingdom in the year 1770, the 20th of his Majesty's reign, chap. 6. From these Dissenters, no Test whatever had been exacted in lieu of that from which they were exonerated; but for the Catholicks by an ACt of the 15th and 14th of the King, chap. a Test Oath was proposed for ascertaining the Alle- giance and Fidelity of Catholicks. About f0ur years after, viz, the 17th and 18th of George the Third, chap. 49, in consequence of this a strong Legislative Declaration was made, in which the principle, which has been gradually followed up by subsequent ACts, is strongly and decidedly affirmed. For the preamble of that Act States. their uniform peaceable behaviour Catholicks) for a long series of years, it appear; reasonable expedient to relax the same; ( restraints, and it must tend, not only to the cultivation and improvement Of this kingdom, but to the prosperity and strength of ALL his Majesty's dominions, that his Subjects of ALl denominations shall enjoy the benefit ot our Free Constitution, and should be bound to each other, by mutual interest and mutual affection."

[ A great variety of reasons, of a private nature, are given in this Protest, to justify Earl Fitz- william in the measures he was pursuing-; which, not being materially interesting to the Publick, for that reason, as well as their great length, are omitted. To this is subjoined a very long Protest of Earl Fitzwilliam individually, which concludes with the following words : " He will remember with a warm and lasting gratitude, and a cordial attachment, the weighty persons in Parliament, and all the respeCtable bodies and individuals, by whom he was generously en- couraged and honourably supported, in a different plan of Government from that, which derives its support from the corruption of one part of the People, and the depression of the other.] COPYHOLD COMMODTOUS HOUSE and LANDS, EPPING FOREST. 0 be SOLD by PRIVATE CONTRACT, by Messrs.

TUESDA Y, May 19. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. PARIS, May 12. eVERY eye is now fixed on our publick finances. The project of Dubois Crance, proposing to levy an impost in kind, has many partisans. With the utmost impa- tience we long for a settled form of Go- vernment, and a Constitution; till we have at- tained both, there can be no fixed rallying- point in France. Letters from Bourdcaux announce the arrival of several American vessels, laden with Flour, which has occasioned the price of bread to fall 40 sous per pound. The Ports of Dunkirk, Ostend, and Havre, have also received several ship cargoes of provisions and merchandize ; and till they reach this metro- polis, the neighbouring departments supply us with Corn and Flour which arrive under a military escort.

In the morning, after at- tending Chapel prayers, the King, Prince of Wales,' and Duke of York, on horseback, and the Queen, Princess of Wales, Duchess of York, and the fix Princesses, in carriages, took an airing. At half past four o'clock their Majesties, Prince and Prin- cess of Wales, Duke and Duchess of York, Duke of Clarence, and the six Princesses, dined together at the Queen's Lodge. _ In the evening the Royal Family went in carriages to Frogmore- House, where they were joined by the Duke of Gloucester and Family, Prince of Orange and Family, aud several Nobility of both sexes who had received the Queen's card of invitation on the occasion, from whom their Majesties and the Royal Family re- ceived the usual compliments. The entertainments of the night were, by appointment, a ball, with refreshments, to commence at nine o'clock, and a supper of two services to be on table at twelve. The whole was in the pavilion which has been used on similar occasion. This day being the anniversary of the Queen's birth, - when her Majesty enters the 52d year of her age, will also be observed with, great festivity at Windsor. The Royal Family dine together at the Queen's Lodge, as yesterday. The evening en- tertainments, which arc given by the King in com- plitment and honour of his illustrious consort, are to be a concert in the grand Council- chamber at the Castle, and a superb supper in St. George's Hall after the concert is over. The Company will be nearly the same as at yesterday's festival, except that the Nobility will be more numerous. . The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty have passed a resolution for paying a visit to the several Dock- yards in the course of the summer.

'•'-- Extract of a letter from Barbadoes, April 8, " A vessel is arrived this morning from St. Vincent's, and brings intelligence, that a 74 gun ship had arrived with two Regiments. The Caribs had taken post within two miles of the town, but were expeCted to make a speedy retreat when the suc- cours arrived." On Saturday the Paris Gazettes, down to the 12th inst. inclusive, arrived in town, which fur nish some very material information. The sittings of the Convention are highly interesting to those; who, with close attention, follow the progress of the French Revolution. From the discussion. which preceded the settling of the new form of Govern- ment, as well as from the decree itself, it clearly appears that while, on one hand, have inconveniencies arising from a division of power have been severely felt by the Convention, on the other hand, the con- centrating the power in one Committee, ( that of Publick Safety,) has a strong bent towards the decemviral regimen, which it has been so difficult to destroy. The new Government also remaining still a provisionary one, the epoch of a ConstitUtion, calculated to be permanent, is removed to a still greater distance, since it would have been unless to organize the new Government, if this Constitution were likely to be soon presented to the French people, to secure their happiness; or to the European Powers, to serve them as a security for the stipula- tions contrasted by thc Republicans. To this want of a settled Constitution are to be attributed the eternal variations in the course of the Revolution. While the Convention has quelled the insurrection in La Vendee, by the submission of Stoffiet, the Treaty with whom was read on the 9th, it has the mortification to learn, . that massacres are committed at Lyons, Montbrisson, and in other places. The laws do but feebly oppose the vengeance ot the people; the voice of the Representatives is drowned or slighted, and blood still overflows se- veral- parts of . the Nation, without cementing ihe • basis of the Republiek ; and the cOnclusion of a civil war does not lessen the preparations for another cam- paign ; which, although opened late, promises to be as vigorous as any of the preceding years. A discussion which took place oa the finances, proves the Convention to labour under the same embarrassments, with respeCt to this delicate point, as In regard to the important article of the Consti- tution ; and those difficulties increase every day. All its projects are counteracting each other ; and every decree evinces the most gross ignorance in this department of publick affairs. And. yet what is a State without a well- regulated system of finance, without order in its treasury, and without a clue to extricate it from the labrinth in which it finds itself? The discussion in. the Convention of the form of . the decree proposed by the Commission of Eleven was opened on the 9th. The following is the form of the decree : " The National Convention, after having heard its Commission of Eleven on the means of giving a greater degree of energy to the present Government, decrees, - - " Until the Constitutional Laws are put in force, the Government shall be entrusted to the Committees of Publick Welfare and of General Safely, with tne exceptions . and modifications contained in the follow- ing articles: The Committee of General Safety shall preserve its present powers and attributes.— It is besides charged with the direction of the armed force of Paris.— The Committee of Finances shall preserve all. its present power, except the direction and con- troul of the Treasury, which shall be entrusted to the Committee of Publick Welfare.— Nothing in this decree is to affeCt the functions of the Committee of Decrees, or of the Committee of InspeCtors of the National Palace.— With the above exceptions, the Committee of Publick Welfare is exclusively charged with the direction and controul of all parts of the Government. The Committee of Publick Welfare shall not propose to the Convention the form • of a decree; it shall only present Reports on the dif- ferent parts of the Government entrusted to it.— The Committees of Publick Welfare and General Safety shall each be composed of sixteen Members, iour of whom shall go out every quarter. Any Member going out by rotation shall not be re- eleCted before the expiration of one month.— Such of the provisions of the Law of the 17th FruCtidor as are not repealed by the present decree are to remain in force." On the ' iotli the discussion of the plan proposed by the Commission of Eleven was resumed, Freron dccidedly disapproved of the plan. It was a reproduction and a revival of the Government of Robespierre. He therefore moved a plan to sup- press the Revolutionary Government ; to appoint an Executive Council; to six the organick Laws of the Republick, and to submit them to the People ; to convoke the Primary Assembliesj and to eleCt a new Legislative Assembly, which should assume its functions six months after its election. During this period of six months, he proposed that the powers of the present Convention should be continued, for the purpose of amending the Laws, and of establish- ing regularity in the Government. This plan was received with loud applauses, and ordered to be printed. A Member, moved, that the suppression of the Revolutionary Tribunal should be put to the vote. This motion was referred to the Committee of Legislation, in order to make a Report in three days. It was now demanded that the discussion of the Plan of the Commission of Eleven should be closed. it was accordingly closed, and the following plan which Cambaceres proposed was adopted by the holders voting at Elections, which was referred to a Committee, and is to be confirmed and published by a subsequent general - meeting. It is a question whether thc Prince of Wales has precisely a life rent in the Dutchy of Cornwall. there is a contingency on which, during his life- time, his right ceases, which is, in case of his suc- cecding to the throne, and his having a first son born to him after that event. The nature of this appan- age is singular. It belongs Only to. the eldest son of the King actually on the throne. If thc Prince, therefore, had a son before the event of his succession, that son would not be Duke of Cornwall; or in case of his Royal Highness's death, it would not descend to the Duke of York. A Court- Martial will be held immediately after the conclusion of the present trial at Portsmouth, in order to enquire into the loss of the Alexander Man of war, of which Richard Rodney Bligh, Esq. lately arrived from France, was Commander. The Kitty, Walker, is arrived at Barbadoes, after having beat off the Mutine, which was sent in: to the River Calabar to take her ; the Mutine was in company with another Brig, and the Princess Royal; the Lieutenant and several of the crew of the Mutine were killed. the George, Gowing, from Jamaica to Liver- pool, which had been taken by the French, is re- taken and carried into Halifax. The George, , from the Cape de Verds to Barbadoes, is taken and carried into St. Thomas's. , The Aurora, France, from New- York to the West- Indies, is taken and carried into St. Domingo. The Levant, Hind, was taken and afterwards blown up on Bonny Bar by the French. It is the intention of the Irish Government to form encampments all along the coast of that king- dom ; one is already marked out, between Drogheda and Bray, for 8000 men.

The Convention find leisure to apply to the formation of a permanent government, in which they have not been inter- rupted of late by petitions or addresses on the sub- ject of provisions; the scarcity is therefore probably diminished.

THE PRINCE's DEBTS, to the PrintER of The St. J. CHRONICLE, Mr. BALDWIN, I Do not mean to say one word pro or con on this subject, as far as regards what is past. But as none of the plans submitted to the House of Com- mons have given universal satisfaction, I should be glad to know if there is any objection to the plan am about to offer; namely, to pay these debts by a LOTTERY", or rather by one or two Lotteries. I am of opinion that the whole might in this manner be defrayed in about two or three years time— and I am much mistaken if a certain degree of popula- rity would not attach to this Lottery. I need scarcely add how very desirous at all times people are to venture their money on a security like this. I am, Sir, Your's, & c. X. Y. ? St. James's Chronicle. HOUSE or PEERS, MONDAY, May 18.

General M'Leod rose to make his promised motion as to the additional allowances lately granted to soldiers by his Majesty on account of the high price of provisions.— This he commenced as dangerous and unconstitutional, in as much as it ought to have proceeded from Parliament and not from his Ma- jesty,— He dwelt very much at length, with very great emphasis, on the impropriety of this mea- sure as tending to attach the soldiery to the person of the King independent of the Parliament; and in- sisted that his Majesty could not, of his goodness and bounty, increafe the pay of the Army; for the Parlia- ment would not permit him.—- He allowed, that in the first instance which had occurred, Ministry had afterwards, obtained a sanction from Parliament, but this was after the soldiery had. been taught to look with gratitude else where. He made some animad- version on the Circular Letter of the Duke of YORK, which recommenced the necessity and pro- priety of the last advance. The mode in which the increase or allowance was made, he also objected to; it being issued to the officers as the surplus of ex- pense ; had it been paid to the soldier he might have mingLed with the people and taken his chance in the Market. After much more declamation of the same nature, the contract between the support of the sol- diery by the King and by the Parliament, was very forcibly stated by the General, and several allusions were made which wc consider as much better sup- pressed than related.— Or. e, however, we shall men- tion and remark upon,— To state that this extra allowance was made, out of the bounty and goodness pf his Majesty, the General considered as Treason against the Parliament and the Constitution, — [ The General should be informed that by the English Laws, neither the Parliament nor the Constitution can he the object of the crime of Treason.' j He concluded with observing that his Majesty had a private hereditary estate in the Electorate of Hanover, for the disposition of the Revenue of which he was not positively amenable to the controul pf Parliament. This he was, therefore, at liberty to expend as he pleased ; but even then it was the duty and prerogative of Parliament to guard against the expenditure of it upon the soldiers of this king- dom, and there is no doubt but if such a plan were in agitation, efficient measures would be taken to prevent it. So too was it equally the duty and in- terest of Parliament to prevent any undue expendi- ture of the money raised in this kingdom, whereby an improper influence might be exerted, and the army be suborned. Upon these grounds he moved for the productions of three Papers. One a circular letter from his Royal Highness the Duke of York to the War- Office, dated the 13th of April ; another sent to the War- Office in his Majesty's name upon that letter; and the third an official paper signed by the ' Secretary, to the Generals and Commanding Offi- cers of the corps, instructive of the proceedings in consequence. If this motion war. carried, he gave notice that he should then move for the House to go into a Committee upon those. Papers; and pass a Resolution on the impropriety and unconstitutionality in the conduct of his Majesty's Ministers relative thereto. Mr. Courtenay seconded the motion, and enforced General Macleod's arguments,— He made some ir- reletant remarks on the absence of the Secretary of war, who came in while he was speaking. Mr. Windham excused his earlier attendance, ss not from design or negligence, but pre- occupation in the publick discharge of his duty elsewhere. He then discussed the question, both in the prin- ciple and the particular, and expressed his approba. tion of it to the fullest extent. The principle had existed a considerable time in the allowance of bread in kind, whereby the soldier always obtained more sustenance than he could procure from his pay, and was taught to look up, with a sense of gratitude and obligation, to his Sovereign, If the principle was received in one instance, why should it not be re- ceived in another ? The additional allowance was merely given during the high price of provisions, which as it was temporary, whenever that price should be reduced could be easily withdrawn again, without any loss to the soldier, or even a sense of its subtraction ; it had been constitutionally ac- counted for to Parliament in the strictest and most reasonable way among the Estimates of the Extra- ordinaries of the Army. Mr. Fox said, that as Parliament was tting, it should have been the sole judge of the urgency of the case. He should not enter into the question, whether the measure was warranted by the times or not; but he considered it as establishing a precedent of the most alarming and dangerous tendency :— Was the Army, he would ask, to be paid by the King, or the House of Commons ? which ought to hold the purse of the People f These were questions which were to be answered. But it was no question with him what was the object of Ministers; he was convinced that as Parliament was fitting, and not consulted, they had adopted the measure for the sake of precedent, and not for urgency ; but whither that precedent was to lead, was a question of a serious and alarming consideration. Mr. Pitt contended that the measure which had been adopted was of the same nature with many which had been again and again discussed and ap- proved of by Parliament. He considered it as jus- tifiable in policy and expediency ; and it had not been, submitted to Parliament, only because it was impossible to make a previous estimate of it ; but it was certainly to come before that House for its fub, sequent sanction, when it would be found just, hu- mane and necessary. General Smith considered the measure as impoli- tick. He thought nothing ought ever to be granted to soldiers with arms in their hands. There had been insurrections in the Militia, in consequence of the high price of provisions, and he would never give up an inch to such tumults. Mr. Pitt explained, that the measure was not adopted in consequence of, but previous to, such dis- turbances ; and the most vigorous means had been used to bring the offenders to a sense of their duty. Sir Horace Mann reprobated the idea of raising an invidious distinction between the Executive Go- vernment and the House of Commons. Sir W. Pulteney declared, that as he approved of the measure, though he condemned the mode, he should move the previous question. The House then divided on Sir W. Pulteney's Motion ; Ayes, - 67 Nots, - 2Z Adjourned. IRISH PARLIAMENT. In the House of Lords, on the 13th instant, the Bill for obliging Bishops to give leases for three lives, or 31 years, was, upon the second reading, after a long debate, thrown out. It was supported by the Earl of Portarlington, and by the Earl of Clonmell; who contended that the Bill, by em- powering Bishops to give longer leases than usual to their tenants, held out to them encouragements they had not now, that would considerably tend to in- creafe the improvement of the country. it Was opposed by his Grace the lord Primate, who mentioned that such a Bill had been often in- troduced fn that House, and refused, and hoped this would meet the same fate; and therefore moved that it should be committed for the ill of August.

Sir H.

Hermarn, GUILTY, of having committed at the Revolutionary Tribunal, in the second year of the Republick, crimes tending to favour the plans of the enemies of the People, to promote the dissolu- tion of the National Convention, and to arm the Citizens against each other; of having caused an innumerable quantity of Citizens to perish under the forms of law ; of having drawn out lists of proscrip- tion; of having ordered women with child to be executed ; of having tried and condemned 30, 40, and even 60 persons at a time, within three hours ; of having drawn out indictments in such a confused manner, that the father has often been executed for the son, and the son for the father; of having re- fused to persons accused a copy of the Act of Accu- sation against them ; of having packed Juries, in- stead of chusing them by lot, See. The Publick Accuser, as soon as the verdict was pronounced, re- quired that the penalty of death should be passed upon them. The President immediately asked what they had to say against the application of the law. Fouquier Tinville—" SinCe it has been decided that I should lose my head on the scaffold, poste- rity, to whom all things must be known, will dis- cover who the real conspirators are. I demand to be led to immediate execution. I am ready." The condemned persons were carried from the bar, and this morning they were conducted, amidst an immense crowd of persons, who bestowed the most bitter execrations on them, to the Place de Greve. where they were executed. [ Thus do the French, after sanctioning the mis- sacres of which these wretches were the instruments, endeavour to expiate their crimes by the sacrifice of their Agents; and this is called Virtue and Mode- ration ] L0ND0n TUESDAY.— May 19. Yesterday French papers of a yet later date by one day than those which arrived 011 Saturday, were received in town ; by several of these it should appear, that another Revolution of party is much expected. In the South of France, particularly at Lyons it is generally understood that the insurrection which has taken place has been of a much more dreadful description than the Conventional details admit.— At Marseilles also, a disturbance has broke forth, in consequence of which some lives have been lost. In many of the Departmental Communes, arrests have been necessary, in consequence of symptoms of returning loyalty which have discovered themselves, particularly on the side of Alsace. There Is no mention made in the last Paris papers of Peace having been concluded with Spain. BAILLEUL owned lately in the Convention, that for three months past, a large convoy ' of vessels laden with corn and ship timber, destined for Brest and St. Malo, had been shut up at Havre by our armed vessels, cruising off the Coast of Britanny and Normandy ; " in consequence of which, the corn had got heated ; and in order to prevent its entire loss, had been CONSumed at Havre; and that the timber had never reached its place of destination. It appears that in the Convention, either on the 3d or 4th, the Committees of Publick Welfare and Finance presented a report on the state of the Fi nance, and on the means of restoring credit and con- fidence to them. The great object of this report is to call in a large quantity of assignats, and to raise the value of such as are not called in. The means of producing this effect are, by the creation of a new species of paper money, - in the nature of a mort- gage on all lands belonging to the Republick. This paper money is to be called Cedules d'Hypotheque, which we have translated Bills cf Mortgage. It it also proposed that there shall be a Mortgage Bank [ Banque d'Hypotheque) for the purpose of lending money on the bills, and on assignats. All parties agree in representing the. distresses of the French Capital as lamentable in the extreme. The Republicans are greatly humbled, and Peace at any rate is their Prayer. They look to Great- Britain with respect and fear. By the manner in which we have prosecuted the war, they are con- vinced, more than ever, of the extent of our re- sources, and of the stability of our Constitution. It may be said of France, at this moment, that she has defeated herself by her victories. Her in. ordinate exertions have exhausted her; while the steady, cool, and persevering endeavours of this Country have shewn to the world, even in the absence of success, the importance of a wise and well regulated Government. How far it may be prudent in some of the Con- tinental Powers to make Peace with, and acknow- ledge, the French Republick, we will not take upon us absolutely to pronounce ; but confident we are, that the politicks of the Continent ought not to incline us to any tameness of submission ; and that to the attainment of a stable Peace, Great- Britain must maintain a firm and dignified character. A splendid report on the subject of the burning of the Boyne, is, we understand, preparing for the Convention, by LE SAGE, the successor in veracity to the authentick BARRERE. The reporter, it is added, has even received instructions to extend the flames to the whole British fleet at Portsmouth ; and to add, by way of Postscript, an account of the; death of LORD HOWE, LORD HOOD, and those Naval Commanders from whom France has already suffered so much, and from whom she has still so much to fear. MONTAIGNE, whose credit has been sunk for a considerable time by the fanciful character of his writings, deserves to be quoted in many cases ; particularly in opposition to the politicks of his coun- trymen. " In all things, says he, except those which are undoubtedly evil, a change is to be feared; and no laws are willingly obeyed but such as have endured so long that no one knows their beginning, or that there were ever any other." The vacant blue ribband, by the death of the Earl of Bective, it is said, will be given to the Earl of Clermont. Extract of a letter from Portsmouth, May 17.
