PRICE 6d.} PRINTED BY J. GREGORY tf CO. Friday, IN THE MARKET- PLACE. March 4, 1803. [ No. 2622. J Sunday & Tuesday's Pofts. LONDON, MONDAY, February 28. A Report of a Commercial Treaty having XJL been nearly settled between this country and France, gains ground. On Saturday a Dutch mail arrived, by which it is said letters have been received, stating that M. Schimmelpennick, the Batavi- an ambassador in this country, is negotiating » Commercial Treaty. Yeiierday were received French papers to the 23d inftant. The Moniteut of that date contains an official view of the present fitua- tii n of the Republic, prepared for the Legis- lative Body, to whom it is to be conveyed by three ol the Members. Tins important and curious paper is figned by Bonaparte—- its substance is as follows: — It begins bv complimeniing the Senate on the in* creasing industry of the Republic, and the union amongst its citizens. It is stated, that in all the Departments which were v sited by the First Consul, lie every where received complete testimonies of a return to those principles which form the strength and happiness of aociety. Aft r some remarks on ihe cession of Elba to France, by which she acquired a mild and industrious people, two beautiful ports, and a valuable mine, it mentions the reasons why that Island should not be subject to the same laws which apply to the Continent, With respect to Piedmont, it contains the following pas- sage : " 1 he abdication of the Sovereign, ths wish ct the people, and existing circumstances, ha'd pla- ced Piedmont in the power of Fiance. Amidst ihe nations with which that kingdom was surrounded, and the different sentiments that prevailed amongst her inhabitants, she could neither support her own inde- pendence, not theexpencesofa Monarchy; but unit- ed to France, she will enjoy both security and gran- deur, while her laborious and enlightened Citizens will extend their talents and industry in the midst of the arts and of peace." A view is now taken of the internal situation of France, the object of which is to praise the vigilance of the Magis. rates for their attention to justice; the military, for their rigid discipline and the Gendar- merie, for their activity in the suppression of popular disorders. With respect to the Agriculture of the Republic, it is stated to have attained a degree of per- fection beyond that of the most boasted systems in Europe. The Veterinary Art has also been encou- raged by premiums, and attempts every where made toimprove the quality of wool by the introduction of foreign flocks. Manufactures of every kind are in a progressive state of increase, and nothing is wantin to a power which seems to waver, but whom it is our i interest to support and consolidate." " Some British troops still remain in Alexandria \ and Malta: of this our government had a right to complain, but it has learned that the ships destined to convey them to Europe are in the Mediter- ranean."' • " The Government secures to the people the peace of the Continent, and it may be permitted to hope for the continuation of a Maritime Peace ; this Peace is required and wished for by all parties; and to preserve it, the government will do whatever is compatible with national honour, and essentially con- nected with the strict execution ot treaties. But in England two parties dispute for power: One has concluded the peace, and is decidedly inclined to maintain it; while the other has sworn an imputa- ble hatred to France; hence arises that fluctuation in opinions, and in the Senate that attitude which is at once pacific and threatening.— As long as this contest qf parties continues, there are certain pru- dential measures necessary on the part of the Re- public. Fire hundred thousand men must and will be ready to defend and avenge it. What a strange necessity is imposed, by miserable passions, upon two nations whose attachment arises from an equal interest and a general inclination. " But whatever may be the success of intrigue in London, the parties will not succeed in forming new alliances with other powers; and our Government tells them, with well- founded pride, that England alone cannot now encounter France! But let us entertain better hopes, and rather believe that in the ) British Cabinet there will in future be heard only the councils of wisdom, and the voice of humanity. * " Yes, without doubt, the peace will be cons li- dated, and the connection between the two govern- ments will assume that character of benevolence so congenial to their mutual interests, A happy repose will cause the long calamities of a disastrous war to be buried in oblivion, and France and England, by contributing to their reciprocal happines, will merit the approbation of the universe. " The First Consul, ( Signed) BONAPARTE. " By order of the First Consul, " The Secretary of State, ' ( Signed) H. B. MARET." actions might more easily be observed by the French agents or spies, who follow him every where; vari- < jjus reports circulated in Italy in consequence; it was, however, soon remarked that the arrival of a British fleet in the Mediterranean, created much uneasiness to the Italian Proconsuls of the Great Nation. t " Two days ago courier arrived from Milan, and since it is whispered in the ministerial circlcs, that the King of Sardinia has voluntarily ceded to England the Island of Sardinia, on receiving for himself and his posterity a pension somewhat more than the pre- sent revenue of that Island. " Should this really be the case, England has only anticipated the intention of France, and Sardinia as a naval station, when Malta is given up, would, as such certainly be a very valuable acquisition ; had France been as powerful by sea as by land, there is no doubt that the Senatus Consultus that incorporated Piedmont with the French Republic, would have added Sardi- nia to its usurpation. " When France surprised and usurped Piedmont a pension was promised its Sovereign, which never has been paid, and indemnities which he never has received ; and since the Continent of Europe, only with unavailing pitv, has seen force and fraud divest this Prince of the most valuable inheritance of his an- cestors, it has no reason to complain, and no right to i nterfere, because he trusts only to British honour and to British generossity for the future support and maintenance of himself and his family." Timber and Bark on Sale. to their success but a more extensive employment of capital, which is, however, rapidly withdrawing from hazardous speculations in the stotks to this more j profitable and patriotic occupation. lastly, it is stat- ! ed that upwards of ^ 0,000 French manufacturers, ! who were dispersed throughout Europe, have by the prot< ction and benevolence of the Government, returned to pursue their respective vocations in the Republic. I he manufacturers of Lyons and Com- piegne, are particularly noticed for their rapid ap- proximat ion to the> r tormer opulence. After taking a survey of various measures of de- fence completed along the coast, the report adverts io the situation of the colonies in the West Indies.— The islands of Martinique, Tobago, and St. Lucia, • are stated to have been surrendered in the height of prosper ty ; Guadaloupe is in a good state of cultiva- tion, and Guiana is rapidly rising from its obscurity. St. Domingo, says the report," had submitted, and the author of its troubles was in the power of France: everything, in short, announced the return prosperity, when by a horrid disease, it was| ip* 0ted n- neived calamity : but the plague that cftsoiated By the last arrived French papers w e have received the constitution which Bonaparte's Ministers have framed for Swisserland. The ancient federal form is made the foundation of this new arrangement, but it wants that tie fry which alone such a government can long sub- lj sist. That spirit of patriotism which formerly < animated the Swiss, was sufficient to give sta- j bility lo the mostloose and incompact of all go- vernments ; but where, instead of this, a spirit ot mutiny and disaffection prevails, it requires some- strong compressive power to keep tight the band* ol an Empire. No such power ap- pears in the present constitution imposed on Swisserland : we must therefore conclude that it is intended to lodge this conpressing power in the hands ot a French army, which cannot thus be dispensed with. It is indeed held out that Swisserland is to be evacuated by the French troops as soon as the new constitution has been completely established.—— But when will this period arrives, il the report of General Ney, with regard to the disposition Ot the Swiss, be well founded ! Holland was once nearly evacuated ; but the French troops soon found their way back again. This is not the first time that the first consul promised to leave the Swiss to themselves. His paternal care of the Gauls is too great long to leave deserted state. the private advices from Paris, it would appear that the First Consul does not yet find matters quite in a train for the assumption of . UUl Ulfc fic*£, uv ' « •'-- - our army has now ceased its ravages, and the forces that remain in the colony, together with those which ivill speedily arrive, cannot tail to restore it to peace and prosperity." The army and the marines are stated to be making the most rapid progress in their respective tactics, • while in consequence of the exposure of the frauds of • contractors, together with an improved system of eco- nomy, the soldier is better fed and cloathed, and the savings which he is enabled to make from his pay, attach him as strongly to his colours as to his family. With respect to the finances, their sources are every where increasing. In the 6th year it was sup- posed that the contributions, & c. amounted to SO,< 100,000, part of which were three or four years in arrear; at present there is not a deficiency of 3,000,000. Every branch of administration becomes more productive. In giving a sketch of the repose and tranquility of • he Continent, the Italian Republic, the report as- • crts, is strengthened by the unanimity of its inhabi- * » nr « _ while the judicious proceedings of its admini- his new title of Emperor of the Gauls. It is however to be expected from his well- known temper, that he will not long defer the execu- tion of the measure if he has once resolved on it. Bonaparte, though he has not yet received the Crown, assumes in ail his official acts, the usual style of Royal, in the invariable use of the plural pronouns, we and Us. A letter from Paris of the date of Tuesday last says: " The ether foreign Nobility and Gentry with men guilty of re- volutionary grown rich by revolutionary plunder ; men, in their own country, they cer- • tration, together with its military force, have already given it the character and appearance of a long- esta- blislied State; and if the same wisdom continues to prevail, its destiny will be still morS^ rosperous, " Liguria, placed under a mixed constitution, be- holds at its head, and in its authority, | h « j$ e citizens who are most distinguished by their tmues, their fortune, and their intellects.' " Batavia is gradually re- gaining possession of the Colonies restored to her by the peace; but she ought never to forget, that France can be to her only the most useful friend, or the most dangerous enemy." " n Germany the last stipulations oi the treaty of Luneville are near their completion." Prussia, Bavaria, and all the secular Princes, who had possessions on the left bank of the Rhine, have obtained on the opposite bank adequate indtra- " The House of Austria, in the Bishoprics of Saltzbourg, Aichstett, Trent, and Brixen, as well as in most parts of Passau, finds an equivalent for what it has lost in Tuscany." " Thus, by the happy concurrence of France and russia, every permanent interest is consulted} and, irom the midst of that storm which appeared to be pregnant with destruction, the Germanic Empire, that Empire so necessary to the equilibrium and the repose of Europe, arises with greater strength, by composed of elements more homogeneous and combined, and adapted to the circumstances of the present age." " A French Ambassador is at Constantinople, tainly would not permit to come witnin tneir noors.— Last toll given by a man now worth millions; a porter to a wine- merchant, and one of the persons who on the 6th of • October 1788, carried from Versailles to Paris, carnage of the Royal Family, the heads of the King's Garde da Corps,) most foreigners of distinction Were present, together with the Regicides Merlin, Fouche, Sieyes, Carnot, & c. and an unusual num- ber of other revolutionary gentry, as the Senator Garat, who signed the death sentence of his King, the Tribune Grouvelle, who read the death sentence to his King, and General Santerre, who with a shocking brutality carried his unfortunate King to the scaffold ! When German and Russian Princes, English Peers, and Spanish Grandees are found in I such company, who dare to deny the too fatal pro- ! gress of Jacobinism in all calsses of society every where. Bonaparte has more than once said that the revolution was at an end— his Prefect of the Police at Paris, is however of a different opinion; he has just renewed all the former revolutionary laws and slavish terrorist regulations to which persons travell- ing in free France are subject; this is particularly di- The Court of Common Council on Thurs- day resolved unanimously to address his Ma- jesty on the discovery and detection of the late diabolical and traiterous designs against his royal person and government. A committee appointed to prepare the address withdrew, and being returned with the same, it was twice read, and unanimously agreed to, and ordered to be presented by the whole court to his Majesty. It seems to be a very general opinion, that M. Peltier will not be brought up to receive jndgment; but that the mighty prosecutor, who cannot send him to Guiana or St. Domin- go, nor probably obtain any very severe pun- ishment against him, will prefer the praise of lenity and pardon. Some persons seem to think, that inconse- quence of the verdict against Mr. Peltier, the Argus will be stopped, and the Moniteur called to order. We confess we are not so sanguine as to expect any compliment of this nature; It is not a week since our Great Henry the Fifth, and his Talbots, Bedford*, and Shrewsburys, have been described by the First Consul of France, as crafty politicians, taking advantage of the simplicity and frank* ness of the French! By accounts from Jersey we find that the government of that island have prohibited the printers of the Jersey Gazette from printing any paragraphs reflecting on Bonaparte, even though they have previously appeared in the London papers. The reason given for this strange prohibition is the danger of offending the First Consul, and re- plunging the two countries in a war ! Tbe good people of Jer- sey, however, may make themselves quite easy on this head. Bonaparte, il he feels himself aggrieved, knows that he can always find re- dress in the Court of King's Bench: and with all deference to the importance of the Jersey Press, we conceive that the First Consul will pay full as much attention to what issues from the press of London. In the Exchequer last week, a cause was tried— Attorney General v. Ockenden.— Mr. At- torney- General statecl. that this information was filed by order of the Commissioners ol Stamps against the defendant, James Ocken- den, a shopkeeper, near Hastings, in Sussex, for selling twelve packs of playing cards with- out the proper stamps being pasted and affixed to the wrappers inclosing each pack of cards, } by which the defendant had forfeited 51. for ' each offence.— The Attorney- General also stated, that the defendant had forfeited two other penalties, one of I0l. for not tying up the cards as directed by ihe Commissioners of Stamps, and a further penalty of 201. for selling the cards as waste cards; but he should confine himself to the penalty first dated. The witness proved the facts as stated in the information, and the jury gave a verdict for the Crown, for 601. being twelve penalties of 5l. for each pack of cards sold. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, and the Hon. Mr. DillOn, have made a match of a very extraordinary kind; each party is to produce an Arabian horse ( his property), to run four miles, carrying eight stone, for one lundred guineas. The remote period at which any foreign cross has been introduced among our breed ot racers, and the great im- provemennt derived from the Godolphin and Darley Arabians, give great hopes ot similar success from the recent importations from ( Asia. Wortheydowns, near Winchester, is the , course fixed upon for the decision of this match, Newington, ( where they had all been deposit- ed since Tuesday last), and were followed by their different friends to the same place of bu- rial. When the whole of the bodies had reach- ed the Chapel, they were taken into the in- side, the doors fastened, and none of the spec- tators ( who were numerous) allowed to accom- pany them. It was expected after the fune- ral ceremony had taken place, that the coffins would be taken to the ordinary burying place, but this was not the case; and therefore' they must have been deposited in a vault under the Chapel. Several Police Officers attended the processions in case any tumult should arise; the whole passed off quietly. Paddington Canal-— Yesterday afternoon, about three o'clock, part of the bank of the Pad- dington Canal gave way, a little on this side ( he first bridge; the water rushed through the tunnel close to the spot, and the meadows on the other side were immediately inundated ; the lock at the bridge prevented the water flowing from the upper part of the Canal.— The gap is about eight feet wide, a log of timber is placed across, and planks driven to I secure the lower part of the bank. The wa- ' ter in the bason, and to the first bridge, has sunk between two and three leet. Indicati- ons of a similar accident have appeared on the opposite bank, near the second bridge.— N. B.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer presented an account of the several sums received by the commissi- oners appointed to liquidate the'debts of his Royai Highness the Prince of Wales, and the manner in which the same have been appropriated.— On the motion of the Right Hon. Gentleman, it was referred to the committee to which his Majesty's most graci- ous message had been referred.— His Majesty's mes- sage, on this subject, being read, and the house hav- ing resolved itself into a committee, the Chancellor ofthe Exchequer, after due amplification, moved, " That it be an instruction to the committee, to grant to his Majesty the yearly sum of 60,0001, out of the Consolidated fund, to take place and be com- puted from the 5th of Jan. 1803, and to continue till the 5th of July, 1806, to be applied to the use of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, for the support of Ins dignity, & c." After the Solicitor General, Mr. Sheridan, Mr. Fox, & c. & c. had spoken, the motion was put, and carried nan. con. Monday, Feb. 28.. Mr. Tyrwhitt rose, and said, he had it in com- mand from his lloyal Highness the Prince of Wales to make the following communication to the House, which he read in his place: " The Prince of Wales has felt, with the liveliest sense of affection and gratitude, the kind folicitude expressed by hisMajefty for tbe fituation of his affairs, and his Majefty's liberal recommendation thereof to the confideration of Parliament. " Having seen from the note of the proceedings ofthe House of Commons, the liberal measures they liad been pleafed to adopt, relative to him, in con- sequence of bis Majetty's messages, the Prince of Wales leels it incumbent on bitn to express the deep fense of gratitude which lie entertains for the libe- ral and generous conduct of the House towards him ; and to assure the House, their kindness had made upon his mind the most lasting impression. " Hut the Prince, notwithstanding the generosity evinced towards him on this occasion, feels him- self bound to declare, that he is ftill expofed to debts for which no provision has been made, but which lie feels himself bound in honour to difcharge; and therefore, notwithftanding the kind folicitude cx- piessed by the House for his speedy refumption of the ( fate and dignity appertaining to his rank, he obliged to appropriate, to the discharge of those debts a large finking fund out of his annu- al income : and however solicitous he may he to comply with the withes expressed by the House for speedy resumption of the dignities appropriate to his llation, yet lie knows but too well, from dear- bought experience, that it would be impracticable to make such a resumption for some considerable time, without the risk of being involved in new em- barrassments " The Prince, confident of his just claims to the Revenues arising from the Duchy of Cornwall, from 1762, until he came of age, and with such confi- dence, founded upon legal opinions of the first au- thority, he naturally looked to arrears due on that ground as a source of complete extrication. But however strong were life claims upon this ground, he preferred the alternative of a firm reliance on the justicc and generosity of Parliament, and now total- ly relinquishes those claims for ever: to which pur- pose, he had given tbe necessary directions to his law Officer to discontinue all farther proceedings on the subject." Mr. Calcraft then gave notice, that it was his in- tention, on Friday next, if that day would suit the Chancellor of the Exchequer, of submitting to the House a motion, the object whereof would be, to place the Prince of Wales immediately in the posses- sion of his wonted dignity. Mr. Erskine immediately rose and observed that any motion of a tendency similar to that just specified, was certainly without the privity of his Royal High- ness. Mr. Calcraft replied, it certainly was; but he was actuated by his own feelings, and thinking the Prince ought to enjoy his proper dignity, he would certainly submit the motion. A Jamaica Mail which arrived this morning, has brought accounts from St. Domingo down to nearly the middle ol January, at which time though the blacks still remained in great force in the interior, the French, it is said, had begun to entertain more, sanguine hopes of the final issue ot the war than had prevailed for some time. Very little is, however, known at Ja- maica of the real state of affairs in St. Do- mingo. The Jamaica Daily Advertiser of the 11 th of January states the arrival, a few days be- fore, at Cape Francois ot eight sail of the line, having on board 12,000 troops from France. The number ot troops is, we think, exaggerated, but there is little doubt that a considerable reinforcement has arrived at the Cape.— attention is very intent upon the of the Franco- Spaniards at the mouths ot the Mississippi, and the sensation they have caused in the United States. Some persons are of opinion that the violation of the treaty will be declared a just and urgent cause ot war, and that troops will be sent without delay to expel the Spaniards from New Orleans. The enterprize, no doubt, is not very diffi- cult ; but we confess that, in the present state ol American politics and factions, we dare not encourage and hope for any thing so decisive. II appears bv accounts from the Mediterra nean, that the reports concerning the evacua- tion of Egypt and Malta by our troops were premature. We always supposed that this was the case. The Turks and the Neapoli- tans are unfit to hold such trusts in ihe present state of Europe without farther security. The Ottoman Secretary, who is now on his way to this country, is expected in town about the middle ot the present week. He is the bearer of the Insignia of the Imperial Order of the Crescent, which, in its gratitude, the Porte sends to the Chief ( and many ot the su- baltern) heroes ot the army of Egypt. Bonaparte says England can expect no al- lies, and we fear this is true. We trust the moment is distant when the experiment shall be tried; but if the day should come when England, even alone, shall be compelled to maintain her just rights, we have not a doubt, whatever the wishes of a few cowards and traitors may insinuate to the contrary, that England would come out of such a contest glorious and triumphant; France baffled, de- feated, and disgraced. But we trust that though it may be a difficult task to avoid a war, when our rivals display such insolence, ambition, and a spirit of real hostility, the peace will be maintained, and that our efforts will be reserved lor a case of the strictest ne- cessity— a case ol honorable and just defence against the worst enemy that ever scourged . he human race. Mr. Pitt's health continues in so precarious a state, as not to admit of his undergoing the fatigue of a regular parliamentary attendance. We understand that the Committee on the Coventry election have couie to a relolution which goes to annul the election of Mr. Jefferies. At a meeting held yesterday at Lloyd's coffee house, ot the subscribers, amotion was made by Mr. Angerstein, " That on account of the eminent services that Earl Spencer has rendered them and the country at large, dur- ing his late Administration, his Lordship's portrait should be placed in the subscription room, as a testimony of their esteem and re- gard." A very spirited debate took place in consequence, and the sense of the meeting appearing to be against Mr. Angerstein's pro- potition, an adjournment was moved. This motion was over- ruled, and the following re- solution was at length agreed to : " That not- withstanding the high sense the subscribers entertained of Lord Spencer's meritorious ser- NEW PANTOMIME.

The YORKSHIRE FLYING PHENOMENON' And— The GRIMACER,* % From the Royal Circus, London, with twelve others, "" Will perform this prefent FRIDAY EVENING, motion in question, as it might encourage mo- tions of a fimilar nature in future." During the performance of Hear Both Sides, at the Portsmouth Theatre last Tuesday, a ve- ry serious disturbance took place, caused by a number of Naval Officers, assembled in the upper boxes. After they had repeatedly in- terrupted the performance it was thought pro- per to send for Constables to remove the nui- sance. But their number being great, several of them in liquor, and all with side arms, it was dangerous for the constables to act. One of them snatched a lighted candle and threw it into a box amongst some ladies. A party of the military arriving, some of the gentle- men were taken into custody ; but the person who threw the candle, we are sorry to learn, is not amongst them. When the soldiers ap- peared, some of the riotous party gave an alarm of fire; and, from the confusion this oc- casioned, several of them escaped. What followed wore a most alarming appearance. Many ladies got over the boxes, and upon the stage; some fainted, fome were hurt in climb- ing over the spikes. Captain Martin, and a number of gentlemen greatly exerted them- selves to assist the ladies. It is with pain we add, that a Lieutenant in the Navy, while thus employed, had the misfortune to run one ofthe spikes through his leg, and that his wound is dangerous The young men who were taken into custody are bound over to ap- pear at the next sessions.

The following statement is copied from a Morning Paper: — " By a letter from Rouen, dated the 23d ult. we learn, that 011 the 21st of February, a Frenchman, of the name of Bourgais, just returned from England, was with a number of his accomplices, arrested by the Government, in consequence of information that rhey had entered into a plot to assassinate the Chief Consul, and afterwards to seize on the reins of Go- vernment. A number of papers were found upon him, which are said to develope the diabolical scheme, and to implicate : i number of persons in this country, rmigrants from France. M. Bourgais came over to England m the month of July last, with recommen- dations to several respectable families to procure him a situation as a tutor. He did not succeed in this, and the account is, that he was drawn into the conspiracy bv some of those emigrants resident in England, who still cherish the thoughts of a counter revolution by the means of tumult and anarchy. We state this entirely on the authority of the letter from Rouen.— We know of no such conspiracy in England. There are very few emigrants now remaining among us, and those who have settled in England are persons who appear to have given up all thoughts of returning ( o their native land. They think differently in France;— and these suspected persons were, on the 22d ult. sent off from Rouen to Paris in irons, and under a guard of 50 horsemen." Yesterday, at twelve o'clock, the remains ct Col. Despard, were taken from his late lodgings in Mount- street, Lambeth, accom- panied by three mourning coaches, in which were his private friends. The procession, ac- companied by a vast number of spectators, proceeded to St. Paul's. The whole passed off with the greatest order. The body was interred on the north side of the church yard. Lord Somerville's Shew of Cattle.— Monday the second annual shew of cattle, instituted by Lord So- merville, took place at Langhorn's Repository, in Barbican. The object which his Lordship has in view is, to give annual prizes to the first and second best yoke of fat oxen which shall have laboured a given period, to provide corn and other food for man, but shall never once have consumed it; the second, to all breeds of short- woolled sheep ( hitherto so much neglected), giving the preference to those the most productive in food'' and raiment j subject to certain conditions. To be given annually, so long as it shall be thought adviseable, a prize of .£ 30 to the best, and « £ 20 to the second best yoke or pair of oxen which shall have worked together in yoke or harness, for the space of three years previous to their being turned up to graze, aged from 5 to 8 years, weighing from 100 to 160 stone, from 10 to 16 score per quarter, being the size best adapted to labour, and to the ave- rage of the markets.

Tuesday, 2d.— The Society, after the shew of cattle, dined together at Freemason's Hall, at which lord Somerville presided— the Duke of Bedford, * Lord Villiers, Marquis of Sligo, Lord Porchester, Mr. Coke, & c- & c. were present, The cloth being removed, his Lordship proceeded to mention the names of those gentlemen entitled to the prizes adjudged by the Society, as follow : The firft a prize of thirty guineas to his Grace the Duke of Bedford, for the best fed Yoke Oxen, The second, a prize of twenty guineas, to Mr. Abrahams, for his second- best pair of Yoke Oxen ; but in case the said oxen should weigh more than 160 stone ( that weight being the standard allowed hy the Society) the said premium should be adjudg- ed to Mr. Martin, his being the nearest, and the best Yoke Oxen in the shew. The first prize for Sheep, thirty guineas, adjudg. cd to Mr. Edm. Smith— Yoke Hog and South Down Wethers. The second, of twenty guineas, was adjudged to * he Duke of Bedford, for his five best South Down Wethers. After which his Lordship, in a handsome speech, earnestly recommended to the Society, to persevere and improve their breed of sheep, by the crossing of the Spanish breed with their South- Down, and also with their Wiltshire & Leicestershire breed. Should this system be followed up, he had no doubt but that in the course of a few years the importation of Spa- nish wool would be totally abolished, and that our markets and woollen manufactories would exceed air other nations for fineness, elegance, durability, and cheapness. MONTHLY AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The mild . » nd gentle manner in which the severe frostsofthebeginningofthepresentmonth, have dis- appeared, has completely dissipated the apprehensions of the farmer, in respect to the danger of the young wheat crops. In the midland and all the more sou thern districts, tne injuries that have been sustained, even in the later sown crops, have in general been but trifling. And in the northern parts of the island they have in very few instances been of a serious na- ture. On the whole it may nowbe stated that for agreat number of years past, there has tcarcely been a sea- son so highly favorable for the various purposes of the farmer, as the present, especially when taken from the begining of August in the preceding year to the conclusion of this month. The prices of grain still continue somewhat on the decline; and from the large quantities on hand it may be reasonably presumed that they must be still more reduced before the conclusion of the next month. Wheat averages, throughout England and wales, 56s. 8d. barley 24s. ! ld. oats, 18s. lid. In most of the Northern parts of the kingdom, the markets continue to be fully supplied, and the sales of grain have been mostly made at reduced prices. Though the frosts during the more early parts of the month, have considerably retarded the operations of the plough, many of the other processes of husban- dry have been performed with great convenience Much manure, in different places, has been carrie d upon the arable, as well as the grass lands. Notwithstanding the abundance of winter keep for cattle, the prices of fat stock continue to keep up, lOST, at Leicester Fair, on Wednesday. A Black Runt.

Sir John Wrottesley wished to know from the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether or not he in- tended taking any notice of the petitions against the Malt Act. Unless that Right Hon. Gent, did so, he ( Sir John) should make a motion on the subject. Mr. Addington replied, that the tax on Malt had been brought forward by himself last year, and it could not he supposed that he was to bring forward ijny motion for its repeal. Notwithstanding the vari- ous petitions upon the table, he was not inclined to give up his original opinion upon the propriety of the measure. He should, however, be ready to meet any discussion which the Hon. Baronet might feel inclined to agitate, provided he would give eight or ten days notice.

PALSY OF THE AESOPHAGUS. - SIR, N the Beginning of June, 1797, in Addi tion to my usual Afflictions, 1 was seized with a violent Pain in my Side, and some other Complaint; which were supposed to be dangerous. About a Month after this Attack., I was frequently in a State of Insensibility; in this Situation Liquids were often put into my Mouth, which would not pass the Throat, and when 1 became sensible 1 found The POWER Of sWALLOWING WAS TOTALLY LOST At this Time 1 was attended by Mr. Bowle,' a* Surgeon, of Market Lavington, who applied Blis- ters, Electricity, tec. without Effect. After conti- nuing in this State, about Twelve Days, Mr. Bowle thought of the Experiment of supporting me with Liquids, through an elastic Tube, put down the Throat into the Stomach : and this Contrivance, 1 have Reason to believe, was the providential Means of preserving my Life;— but from this ex- traordinary Complaint, I was wonderfully relieved by the Application of the Tractors. Edmund Lam- bert, Efq. of Boyton, a very respectable and well- known Gentleman and Magistrate, purchased a Set of the Tractors, which he recommended me to use; the Rev. Mr. Davies, the Rcitor of Sherrington, w; ho is well skilled in the Theory of Medicine, was fo obliging as to apply them. I submited to the Ope- ration, but with little Expectation or Hope of any Relief:— In the Space of about 15 or 20 Minutes, I felt a great Heat and tingling in my Throat, which was afterwards followed by a gentle Perfpiration.' After this tingling Heat, I found the Action of my Throat so far recovered as to be ahle to swallow the Saliva,— I then called for a Glass Of Water,, which I drank without any great Difficulty In less than a Fortnight, by ihe repeated Use of the Tractors, the Action of my Throat was perfectly restored.' The above is a Statement of Facts, and if you ! think them important, you are at Liberty to publish them. ^ 1 am, Sir, your humble Servant, ELIZABETH GAUNTLETT. Sherrington, near Heytsbury, wilts.

HOUSE of COMMONS— Friday. The Secretary at War moved the third reading of the Militia Training Bill. General Tarelton stated, that he did not mean to oppose the motion; on the contrary, no man che- rished a greater esteem for the Militia than he did; and eve- y man who witnessed their gallant services in Ireland must certainly be of the same opinion; but every man who looks at the situation of this county as » he stood with regard to eur neighbour, must be rath" r jealous of that position. France had an im- mense army, well trained, and well appointed; in lhat it might be looked upon a6 the finest in the world. In this country the ballot for 40,000 men, and that soon to follow it for 20,000 more, has had a very great effect upon, and tended much to impede the recruiting for the regular service. This circum- stance was not new to the country, neither was it unknown on the other side of the water, for there were many people, like Sebastiani, ready to report such tidings. He concluded by saying, that in case the recruiting of the regular army did not go on with more success, he should make a motion on the subject befcrejhe termination of the present Session. The Secretary at War admitted that the balloting for the militia did interfere with the recruiting for the aflnv, and regretted that the Hon. General had not frown out his suggestions last year. He was, however, rather surprised to hear him say that the French was the finest army in the world; the British were equally well disciplined and trained, and if tire two armies were front to- front, the issue would rkove that the British army was at least equal. He had the satisfaction to state that the Militia would be ill out by the end of the month. The Bill was then passed. J. Wingfield, jun. of Northallerton, Yorkshire, mer- cer J.

" SIR, " On the 12th of December last I wrote to you by the medium of the post- office. Having had no an- swer, I have resolved to address, you through the channel of the . Though not the favorite news- paper in England, it is, however, a paper publicly read there. I shall begin with copying the letter • which I have already sent you. " SIR, ", Your attack upon me, in your speech in the House of Commons, on the 24th of November last, obilges me thus to address you.— My ignorance and insignnificance, which you paint in colours so dark, ought to be my protection against abuse from any man of good sense. But you have shewn yourself as destitute of good sense a; you are a stranger to po- liteness and good manners. " You cannot but know— you who pretend to so much intelligence and information— that I hold a rank in the army of this great and generous nation, which sets me on an equality with the proudest peer in Great Britain, You know that a soldier's honor is dearer to him than life. Yet, with a know- ledge of these facts, you presume to tarnish my cha- racter, you have attempted to fix stains of infamy on my name which must be washed away in either your blood or mine.— A French Officer is not to be insult- ed with impunity. You, the country which gave me birth, the country into whose bosom I have been adopted, cannot but expect that I am not to betray the honor of die rank to which I have been exalted. 1 I therefore request you to name any city on the Con- tinent, in which you may be willing, in company with some of your friends, to give me a meeting.

" • SIR, " Eight weeks have passed since I wrote to you. My request has been neither accepted nor even ac- knowledged. I now appeal to the public, for my revenge against your attack. Had the condition of my unfortunate country been the subject, of the de- base, there might have been room perhaps for allusi- ons to my name; but that was not the case. The debate was respecting a tax to be imposed on Great Britain, in which I, a citizen of France, could be upon no fair pretence brought in. The baseness of such conduct must be . striking to the whole world. A brave man would nevr attack the defenceless nor the ab- sent. In my letter I scrupulously avoided all retort against yon.— I used no expression that could hurt the feelings of a man of honor, though in so doing, I might have been justified by your example. I simply made that appeal to which every man has a right, when his honor is injured.

On Friday night a man went into a public- house, the corner of Quebeck- street, Portman- square, » nd asked for a lodging. He soon entered into conver- sation with a Life Guard's man belonging to Lord Cathcart's regiment. Proposing that they should' drink together he threw out dark hints of belonging to a good society which he intimated would be very desirable to the soldier, at the same time saying, that he might he of the greatest service by joining their so- ciety, and still keeping his situation as a soldier. He took a book from his pocket, and asked the soldier if he could read, being answered in the negative, he read a seditious paragraph, which the soldier told him he did not like. He then read another para- graph out of a different book, which proved to be the Age of Reason; this the soldier told him he did not like either. He then proposed an oath to the soldier, who toid him, that, having taken an oath to be true to his King, he take another. The man said their party would e the strongest, for which rea- son he need be under no apprehension from swearing as . The soldier then collared and took him into custody, and gave him up to a watchman. When being taken away, the man dropped some papers, which the soldier picked up and offered to him; he refused, saying that they did not belong to hint. the soldier affirmed the contrary; and they were car- ried along with him. An examination into the business took place at Marlborough- street last Saturday ; but as the investi- gation was private, we can only state the above par- ticulars of the transaction. He had a hook- stick with him, containing a dirk, and at the end of it a whistle, which, he said, was to call for assistance in case of being attacked by robbers.

THE Amboyna Mouth Powder is prepared from a Drug the Produce of a far Foreign Country, and imported by a Gentleman of Fortune, who hav- ing experienced its wonderful Effects and balsamic Qualities, introduces it as the only Article that i4- stantly destroys the Scurvy, heals the Gums, removes the fmall Tubercles which surround the Teeth, and are the Cause of an offensive Breath. It fastens, whitens, and preserves the Teeth, makes the Gums and Lips of f beautiful red, instantly Sweetens the Breath, is a fine Stomachic Bracer, and for fafety, proper for an Infant. It removes all Foulnefs the Mouth is subjeCt to from Diet or a disordered Stomach, and by its healing, purifying, and balsamic Qualities, is conducive to Health.

BV Sir JOHN HILL, M. D. SIR JOHN HILL'S Balsam of Honey was produced by the Labour of an aClive Life and vigorous understanding, spent in searching into the Stores of the vegetable World, and ex trading their Virtues, which the God of Kindness has so richly provided as Anodynes for human Infir- mity.— This Genuine Balsam of Honey is an Antt - dote for Coughs and Colds, Ticklings in the Throat, Difficulty o! Breathing, Consumptive Affections, Asthmas, Disorders of the Breast U Lungs, Catarrhs, and all Pulmonary Complaints. Au elaborate Defcription of the Powers of this Medicine, is considered unnecessary, its Name be- speaks its Virtues, and the hackneyed Mode of re- commending it by Cases of Cure, which are fre- quently extorted by Bribe, as incompatible with the CharaCter of Sir John Hill, who, as a Phyfician and Botanist, stamps real Value on its intrinsic Worth, and places its Virtues beyond the reach of Detraction. GUSTAVUS the THIRD, KING of SWEDEN, ^ ynoured him with a Letter, ( accompanying it with the Royal Order of Sweden) which he concludes by faying, " No man ever added so much to the Store ol useful Knowledge as Sir John Hill."
