r PRINTED BY J. GREGORY Csf CO. PRICE 6d. ] Friday, IN THE MARKET- PLACE. ibid March 11, 1803. [ No. 2623. Sunday & Tuesday's Ports. LONDON, MONDAY, March 7. YESTERDAY arrived two French mails, bringing papers and letters to the date of ( the 2d ot March. The former do not furnish one important article of intelligence, unless the nomination of a Grand Master of the Order of Malta by the Pope, be considered as such.— These Journals are filled with discussions on the- projet of the civil code in the Tribunate, & c. with the details of the traitorous career of Colonel Despard and his associates; the pro ceedings in the Court of King's Bench against Peltier. & c. This morning was received ( he French Of- ficial Paper of ( he 3d of March : it is chiefly deserving of notice for the observations it makes on the trial of Peltier : — A person of the name of Peltier ( says this Pa- per) has been found guilty by a London Jury of printing wretched libels against the First Consul'; it is difficult to account for the importance and eclat which the British Government attaches to that event. " As the English Journals have declared it was at the particular desire of the French Government that the trial look place, and that the French Ambassador was in Court during the investigation of the busi- ness, we are fully authorised to give the lie direct to both these assertions; the First Consul having never heard of these libels except through the medium of the printed triaL " In the existing system of Europe, all civilized nations have reciprocal duties to fulfil; they are the more bound to shew each other respect, as a different mode of acting ( which in every country has its par- tisans) would tend to throw us into anarchy and bar- barism. Nor can it be conceived what interest the English can have in supporting and authorising the various kinds of invective which the native libellers daily disgorge; it is equally unaccountable how they can afford protection to French libellers who have settled among them during the war; in fine, the in- utility of the legal proceedings alluded to, and to bc- jet with ostentatious circumstances, appears extreme- ly enigmatical. " the Alien Bill grants Government the power • f banishing foreigners, and it amply avails itself of that right; upwards of twenty Frenchmen who were in business in England, have been lately sent away ; Bay, a few days ago, Citizen Bonnecarrere, Chief of Battalion of the National Guard of Paris, who had a suit pending in the English Courts of Law, and whose wife was at the time on a sick bed, re- ceived orders to quit London in eight and forty . " We know individuals who have been settled in London for upwards of 30 years, whom the Alien Bill has reached. Why, then, affect to drag before a respectable Court of Justice, with circumstances of parade; foreign malefactors such as are always to lie found after great political commotions ? It would lie sufficient for Lord Pelham's Sub- Ministers, to say seriously to them, " don't write any more," and they would be still; and should they refuse comply ing with the injunction, the Alien Bill is there to drive them out of the country. " The King of England owes to his own person, and to the honour of his nation, to put at length an end to these outrages offered to a neighbouring Go- vernment and people with whom he is at peace, and at whose Court he has an Ambassador, as much dis- tinguished by his rank, as he is respectable for his personal qualities. It must, however, be allowed, though the trial was perfectly useless, it at least af- forded an opportunity to the distinguished Magis- trates of the criminal Court of London of displaying their wisdom, and of proving themselves worthy of administering justice to a nation at once so enlighten « d and » o respectable." American papers were yesterday received in town, up to the 29th of January. The New- York Evening Post, of Jan. 17, says, that James Munroe, Esq. had been no- minated Ambassador Extraordinary and Mi nister Plenipotentiary to the Court of Madrid for llie purpose of adjusting the differences subsisting in consequence of the recent infrac- tion. of the treaty with Spain. And thus, says this paper, " ends the bufiness of New Or- leans. Our economical president prefers send- ing two Ambassadors to the Spaniards, and incurring alt the hazard of delay, to taking a step wbich would at once insure justice to our country, and vindicate ill honor." The same Paper asserts, that after Mr Munroe shall have adjusted the objects entrust ed to his discretion at Madrid, he will proceed to Paris upon a further mission ot great im- portance, with the functions of minister extra ordinary. The Governors of the French West India isJands continue to harrass the American trade by every possible means. The Negroes, in revolt, when apprehended, are now conveyed on board the vessels of the United States which sail Irom the ports of Guadaloupe. All remonstrance on the part of the Masters is fruitless, and they are informed by the French officers charged with the execution of the orders, that it they do not- choose to be in- cumbered with the Blacks, they may throw them overboard. . The incessant state of warfare between the aiafive powers of India, the Peishwas, Scin- deas, Holkars, & c. must be matter of anxious concern to those who seriously reflect upon the British interests in that quarter. One time assisted by the French, another time bv the English, the result is, inevitably, a more intimate acquaintance with European tactics. Tfie Swedes, it is remembered, beat the Rus- sians till they taught the Russians to beat the Swedes; and the most numerous party ulti- mately prevailed. From the folly, to call it no worse, of the present colonial system in either quarter ot the globe, will arise, in ano- ther fifty years, such consequences to the pa- rent state ( unless a miracle protects them) as will abundantly avenge the oppressions of the past. _ The Colonial Legislature of Jamaica has found it necessary to prohibit independent and itinerant preachers by a law, which passed on the 17th of December last, from presum- ing to teach and perform the services of reli- gion in assemblies of negroes. The offending preacher is to be taken into custody, and con- fined to hard labour, one month for the first of- fence— six months for every repetition of the same. Orders are given for the removal of the gun on the parade in St. James's Park, which is to be replaced by a 52- pounder, captured Irom the French Army in Egypt. The ground is already measured out, which is to be covered with twenty square feet of stone, the piece being sixteen feet long ; an iron railing is to be put round it.— It is not exactly known in what country the piece was made; there are several Hieroglyphic Characters marked on it, which have not hitherto been explained. The following form of Prayer was read on Sunday last most of the Churches and Cha- pels in the metropolis:— " O Almighty God, who, in all ages of the world, hast manifested thy power and goodness in thy pro vidential protection ot good and godly Kings, ruling in equity and justice, and professing and cherishing thy holy and eternal truth: we, thine unworthy ser- vants, the sinlui people of this land, do prostrate ourselves before thee, with praise and thanksgiv- ing, for that thou hast mercifully vouchsafed to bring to light and to frustrate, in the late as in former in- stances, the atrocious conspiraces and machinations of desperate and bloody- minded men against the sacred person of thy servant our Sovereign, and a- gainst tbe Constitution of this Kingdom. " We acknowledge it to be of thy unspeakable mercy, 0 Lord, that lie hath not been cut off for the sins of the nation. Continue we beseech thee thy watchful care over him. Be thou his defcnce and shield, and let no weapon raised against him pros- per. Clothe his enemies with shame, and disap- point their treasons. We thank thee O Lord, that thdu hast knit together the hearts of this whole na- tion, as the heart of one man, for the defence of our King, our Laws, and our Religion. Strengthen and confirm us, 0 Lord, we beseech thee, in this righteous and loyal consent and union. Long may the Crown flourish on the head of thine anointed, and may the work of thee his God, prosper in his bands. And when it shall be thv blessed will to call him ( o exchange this earthly kingdom for the inheritance of a glory tbat fadeth not away, grant that hit Sceptte may remain with liis children, and his children! children from generation to genera- tion : and that they, fashioning themselves after his example, zealous for thy truth, and ruling accord- ing to thy law, may walk in the light of thy coun- tenance for ever; through thy blessing reign like him in the hearts of their people. These things we humbly begi O'merciful God, for our Sovereign, his Royal house, and for tti'SNation, in the name, and through the mediation of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour Amen." Died suddenly, on Friday morning, Major General D'Oyley. The General was at the levee on Wed- nesday ; went in perfect health, accompanied by his I « ady, on Thursday evening, to a concert, in Pall Mall; returned home to his house in Half- Moon Street, Piccadilly, on Friday morning, and after retiring to lied, fell in a swoon, and expired. Died, at his house, at Pulta, near Calcutta, on the' 29th August last, Sir Charles W. Blunt, Bart, aged 73 years. He went out to India in the humble capacity of a writer in the Company's service, 20 years ago, leaving a wife aud a numerous family1 in England, in very slender circumstances, but obtain- ing soon after a lucrative appointment in ibe bullock contract, besides a share in the post- office, and form- ing honourable and advantageous connections, he married his daughters, one after the other, to men of family, fortune, and merit. He has left X. 100,000 behind him, three fourths of which he has bequeathed to his eldest Son, now in India, Charles Richard Blunt, who inherits also the title— and- we are happy to add, that the India Company, on account of his merit and eminent services, have lately promoted him to a situation worth <£. 4000 per annum. Lately died, at her house, in Canterbury, Mrs. Celestina Collens, widow, aged 70. Although possessing an income of-£. 7p per annum, her habits of life were singularly disgusting, her disposition and peculiarities so eccentric, that she may lie truly said tb have verified the old adage, " de gustibus nil dis- putandum." During many years her constant com- panions were from 16 to 20 fowls, whose ordure defiled as well her bed and every article of her furni- ture as the plate out of which she ate; a favourite cock, whose age might be calculated from his spurs being three inches long, and an equally favoured rat, were for a length of time constant attendants at her table. Her predilection for vermin prevailed so much, that at her death a nest of mice was found in her bed. The house where she resided, besides the room in which she constantly lived ahd slept, con- tained two others that had not been permitted to be opened for many years. Among the bequests in her will, are £. 50 to the Kent and Canterbury Hospi- tal ; the same sum to the parish of Sf. Peter; £. b to the Minister of the parish for a funeral sermon, and one guinea to each of ihe persons who should carry her to the grave; besides many other legacies, ge- nerally to persons in no degree related to her.

On the order of the day tor the third reading of the Bill for settling an annuity of £ 60,000 upon his Royal Highness the Prince of wales, Mr. Kinnaird rose and apologized to the House for troubling them in this stage of the bill; he did not mean to oppose the third reading, but he did not think he should be doing justice to his feelings, were he not to state the reasons which induced him to giVe that vote. He was, for- one, perfectly satis- fied in the measure, and had no wish that Parlia- ment should do less than it had done. When the right Hon. Gentleman brought down his Majesty's message, and thereon founded the present bill, he was one that considered a very advantageous bar- gain had been made. the House were to recollect that they were the constitutional protectors of the Prince, In giving his solemn protest against the bill, v he was actuated by no other motive than. a convic- tion that it. did uot go far enough, nor more than half ibe length of what the Jlouse, in its answer to his Majesty's inesnge, had promised. The money voted did not satisfy tbe Prince ( a cry of hear ! Hear !) After what the country had seen for the last eight years of the economy of his Highness, and the sacrifices he had made, the public were prepared to express their gratitude; . their feelings- were inte- rested in reinstating him in' that dignity and splen- dour, to which he was by birth so. justly entitled. Sir William Dolben wished to say a tew words be- fore the bill passed. It had been his intention to sub- mit a motion similar to the one proposed on Friday ' last, he did not mean to oppose the bilj/ but lie thought the House should come to a resolution, bv which the comfort and dignity of the Princess of wales might also be supported. ' he was convinced his Royal Highness would never enjoy that- outward comfort and splendour unless his Royal Consort par- took - of it. ' 1 Ue Prince had submitted to the wisdom of Parliament, in prjvi. ding. for that desirable end, with an ingenuousness and. urban ty which 50 well became his exalted station; but he could not resume his dignity, if her Royal Highness was not allowed to be the means of adding to it. he should therefore move, that a small part of the .£ 60,000 should lie applied lb the establishment of the Princess of Wales. he was aware the Prince had acted in a manner the most becoming, in paying the demands on him out of his private income; but he was also convinced, that this was one of the/ irst classes of demand which called on his lwnour, and to which he would cheer- fully submit. The Princess had supported her retire- ment for some years in a manner which had added to her many virtues, and exalted her charactet in the estimation of . the public, lie therefore moved, that a clause might be added, by way of rider, for appro- priating a sum of Jj. 6,000' out of . the .£.< 50,000 for the benefit of her Royal Highness. Col. Stanley seconded the motion, and observed that her Royal highness's conduct during her seclu- sion had been highly meritorious and exemplary.— He trusted the House would adopt the motion of his Hon. Friend, and consequently give testimony to her amiable^ and numerous virtues. The Chancellor, ofthe Exchequer hoped his two Hon. Friends would not persist in the motion, he was convinced the Hon. Baronet acted from the best of motives in proposing it: there could be but one sen- timent throughout the- House and the Nation with re- spect to the virtues of the Princess of Wales; and however the House might be actuated by that senti- ment, it must at the same time feel what was due to the virtues of the Prince, . the Heir Apparent ot the British Crown. With these feelings the House could not for a moment entertain a doubt of his Highness's generosity. ( Hear! Hear!) The proposition which had been made, had the tendency to imply a doubt, which he was certain, from his knowledge ofthe Hon. Baronet, he could not for a moment en- tertain. He therefore hoped he would not press the motion. Mr. Martin entirely coincided with the motion of the Hon. Bart. and thought both him, and the Hon. Gentleman who seconded it did themselves infinite honour. He was astonished that no other Member, had the spirit to propose an allowance to her Royal Highness before ; her virtues and character were de servedly estimable in the eyes ofthe people of Eng- land. Mr. Sheridan was disposed, to give credit to the Hon. Gentleman who made the proposal. He would say a word or two however to the assertion of his hon. Friend ( Mr. Kinnaird) that the Prince was not satis- fied with what the House had done; on the contra- ry, so far from being discontented at that act of libe- rality, he was truly grateful and satisfied with it, and no person could doubt for a moment that the prince would resume his dignity and splendour without the Princess. He could assure the hon. Gentleman such a suggestion was not neccssary. From reasons which were evident, he had not found it practicable to re-, eutne his establishment, and of course remained in th « same state of privation as he had done for the last eight years. Sir William Dolben agreed to withdraw his clause; aud the Bill was then read a third time, passed, and ordered to the Lords. The greatest obstacles oppose at this mo- ment throughout the French territory, the ex- ecution ot the laws relative to the conscripts, and great numbers oi those who have been called'upon to join the armies, carefully con- ceal themselves, take refuge in other depart- ments, or fly entirely from France. Many, whose superior circumstances have enabled them to escape from their country, and live independently elsewhere, are now in London, j The dread of a campaign in St. Domingo, has \ been the chief cause ot this determined aver--) sion to the service. The trial of Peltier, has not proved an of- fering worthy of a grateful acceptance at the" shrine ot the First Consul. It has only " served to shew him, that the Government as well as the governed must in this country all equally bow before the laws. It has convinced him that the freedom of the British Press, that ter- ror ol villainy and despotism throughout the known world, cannot be overcome : It is only by shewing its censures to bo groundless, that he can still prevent it Irom surrounding his pillow with thorns. The article 0n this subject, which we have extracted from the Moniteur, shews at once the complaisance he expects from our Govern- ment, and his total ignorance of the nature of our liberty. Instead ot considering the trial of the culprit in an open court, by an unpre- judiced jury, with able lawyers to advocate the cause on both sides, and expose its merits to the opinion of the whole world ; instead of considering this as the best means to shew This morning two Batavian mails arrived, the intelligence brought by which is rather' important. It appears by an article from Constantinople of the 10th of January, that an arrangement has at length been made re- specting the Beys in Egypt, by the interference of the English General and Ambassador, ^ with whom a Convention has been concluded On this subject. Lord Elgin is stated to have officially declared, upon the conclusion of this Convention, that Egypt would be immediately - evacuated by the British troops, which were to be removed trom thence to Malta; which island, however, it is said, is ( or some time at least to be kept possession ot by the English, and this intelligence we are. inclined to believe to be correct. The Dutch government has adopted a reso- lution with respect to the First Consul's in- tended visit to Antwerp; that as soon as his arrival in that city shall be known, a deputati- on from the members ol the Council of State is to be sent to him. From this circumstance, and tbe menace thrown out against the Bata- vian Republic, by Bonaparte, in his review ot the state ol France, we expect that something important to Holland will soon take place. It has been for some time known, that a considerable degree of discontent has prevail- ed in all the commercial towns of the Batavian republic. The financial measures of" the Go-" vernment have been 1' ar irom being palatable fo the merchants of Amsterdam; aud it is un- derstood also, that the Dutch are not at all sa- tisfied with the present situation ol their com- mercial relations with France. Their trade labours under the operation of very oppressive duties; and the commerce which they former- ly, in'a great measure, monopolized, is ra- pidly transferring into the ports of the Nor- thern powers. v the atrocity of the libeller, and instead of Con- sidering the subsequent punishment as most consonant to the calls of honour and justice : the First Consul upbraids our Ministry with not taking the dark and suspicious road ol ar- bitrary power, with not deciding themselves 011 the merits of the cause, and with not punish- ing the culprit without admitting him to be heard in his own defence ! If such sentiments be not the immediate effeCts of spleen ; it it is by such opinions that the First Consul's con- duct is on all occasions directed: wretched is the people committed to his charge! unfortu- nate the nation wbich has spent so much biood, so many years 111 the .- earch ol liberty, and has at length found itseli entangled in the labyrinths of despotism! True indeed it is, ( and we lament the ne- cessity which has made it a truth) that, our ministers might have punished Peltier without a trial, and, in virtue ot the Alien Laws, have driven this unfortunate exile from the only re- luge which Europe afforded him. But Bo- naparte is mistaken if he imagines that they could have commanded their meanest officers to do this, and then have silenced all censure by the strong hand of authority. No! the highest as well as the meanesl minister would, by such conduct, have deserved and met with censure. The Alien Laws were made with a view to guard our government against the machinations of such foreigners as might have corrupted the principles of the natives, and prompted them to such measures as Bonaparte's Journalists, without any proof, have so often attributed to the agents of this country. If laws, framed lor this purpose of impairing the Liberty of the Press, or gratifying any foreign government at the expence of those Aliens whom this country had formerly received, fostered, employed, and never once even sus- pected of any sinister intention ; would such an act have passed in silence? But we will not reason 011 a case that can never happen— Our ministers are Britons, and incapable of such conduct. The English sojourners at Paris live in the same way as the John Bulls and Milords An- glais of former years. They associate exclu- sively with each other, they are taken in by the filles de joie, pigeoned by the gamesters, cheated by the hotel- keepers, and laughed at by all. Yesterday a man of the name of Cosgrove, a printer, was brought before the Sitting Al- derman, at Guildhall, charged with having publicly made use ol treasonable and seditious language. Il appears this man was drinking at a public- house, in the neighbourhood ol Fleet- street, and when there, exclaimed with so much insolence against the name and person of his Majesty, as to induce some poor men, who were in the tap room, to get a constable, and take him into custody. The landlord of the house was brought forward ( though not very willingly) to corroborate the charge; and the magistrate ordered . the prisoner to be committed to the Compter, until a future day. The conduct of the persons who caused this man to be taken into custody,' will, we trust, convince these disseminators of sedition and disaffection, that it is not safe at all times to give vent to their galled minds in the com- pany of the poor, but industrious parts of soci- ety. Friday night, an inquest was held at the Fox, in Wardour- street, on the body of Do- rant Lovell, otherwise George Mango, who was found dead on Sunday morning last, at the corner of Noel- street and Wardour- street. It appeared in evidence, that the deceased, who was a man of colour, had procured his livelihood, for many years, in the streets of London as an itinerant tinker.. He went into the Crown, in Oxford- street, on Friday morn- ing, where he was served with a bason of tea and a buttered roll. He returned in the even- ing to the same house, and had a pint of beer; about eleven o'clock the same evening, he was discovered by the watchmen in Wardour- street, sitting under a doorway, where Andrew Pollock, a watchman, finding him, insisted 0n his leaving that place, and forcibly dragged him to the opposite side of the street, which is St. Ann's Parish, where he lelt him. The watchmen belonging to St. Ann's, finding the wretched being lying on a door- way on their beat, forced him back to the side of the street in St. James's Parish, where he remained, till Pollock resuming to cry the hour, asked him, " What he did there a second time, after he had driven him away ?" when the deceased exclaimed, " O God, I am dying !" " Then ( replied the watchman) you shall not die here: you must do that somewhere else." The deceas- ed answered, '- I am not able to stir, I am a dy- ing man!'' " I care not," said the watchman, and then either dragged or carried him a second time to the opposite side ot the street. At seven o, clock he was found dead on the St. James's side. The Jury returned the following verdict:— " It is not proved in evidence that the deceas- 1 did actually die otherwise than a natural death; but it is very clearly proved, that An- drew Pollock, the watchman On duty in War- dour- street 011 Sunday night last, has been highly negligent of his duty, by omitting to take that care of the deceased which he was bound to do ; and by such omission, the said Jury is clearly of opinion, the deceased lost his life." A very elegant fellow went last Sunday into Clare Market.— From a chicken- butcher he earnestly en- treated a fowl, to make broth for a sick wife ; from a butcher a little beef, to make beef- tea for a sick child; and soon through nearly all the butchers, green- gro- cers, fruit- sellers, & c. in the market. Having thus abused their credulity and humanity, he summon- ed them on Friday to hatton- Garden, where they were fined for breaking the Sabbath. HOTEL LIBRARY. Additions since last Advertisement.

HOUSE of LOrDS— Tuesday. Lord hobart brought down a Message from his Majesty to the following1 effect: " G. R. His Majesty thinks it necessary to acquaint the House of Lords'that very considerable military pre- parations are carrying on in the ports of France and Holland. He therefore judges it proper to take eve- ry additional means for maintaining the peace and se- curity of his dominions. " Though these preparations are avowedly for co- lonial purposes, yet, as discussions of great impor- tance are now depending between his Majesty and ihe French Government, the result of which must be uncertain, he deems it proper to make this commu- nication to the House of Lords, sensible that while they participate in his Majesty's earnest and invaria- ble solicitude for the continuance of peace, he may rely with confidence on their concurrence in such measures as shall be . calculated to support the honour of his Crown, and . the essential interests of his peo- ple." The motion was ordered to be taken into conside- ration to- morrow. —[ 4 similar message'was brought < l » wn to the Commons, also to be taken into consi* iteration to- morrow.] The ASSIZE ASSEMBLY; WILL be at the Hotel Rooms on Monday 21st March 1 the 2lit Day of Marc h Inttant. J. MANSFIELD, Esq. Capt. FARMER, Mr. FREER, Stewards. Tiiat the Government of this country is no longer able to persuade itself of the sincerity ef Bonaparte's professions in respect to peace, may be seen by referring to the Parliamentary Report of last night, by which it appears that a- Message from his Majesty is this day to be taken into consideration by both houses, which recommends strong precautionary measures necessary to lie taken on account of the mili- tary preparations making by France, and of the uncertainty ot the result of the discussions af present. depending between the British and French Governments. That Ministers have, moreover, received some important news, there can be no doubt. In consequence ot an express sent off on Mon- day morning to Windsor, his Majesty came to town with extraordinary dispatch. A Council had been previously summoned, and was held in the afternoon at Buckingham house., It was attended by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Lord Hobart, Lord West- moreland, Lord Castlereagh, and Mr. Bragge, and its deliberations lasted several hours. it was impossible- to listen for ever in si- lence to the offensive language of the French Government. One day we are told that France must assume the attitude of Minerva, " the helmet on the head, and the lance in its rest." Another day we are threatened with the vengeance of 500,000 men, because Lord Grenville and Mr. Wyndham dare to speak in parliament and, as it were but yesterday, the official journal told us, we must change our laws, and constitution. Laying actions aside, surely language like this could not be listened to for ever, in . silence, without com- promising the spirit, honor, and character of England, and with, them, her safety and very existence ! We are informed that when Andreossi ar- rived in this country, he said to Ministers, he had no instructions to negociate respecting any of the objects in the Treaty of Amiens an he was only impowered to deliver a verbal message, namely, " That the Treaty of Ami- ens must be executed in its fullest extent, or France, would go to war." Ministers feel the odium that would follow the surrender of Malta, & c. agreeably to the Treaty of Ami- ens, and the spirit the country displayed in October encourages them now to stand out for some modifications. Orders have been sent from the Admiralty to Portsmouth, for all the ships ready for sea in harbour, to proceed immediately to Spit head. Consols at one o'clock this day had fallen seven per cent.— They afterwards rose two per cent, leaving off at 64— Omnium 12 disc. Among the rumours of yesterday, that of an immediate change of ministers was re- newed ; a measure which, we believe, will entirely depend upon the grand question— •* Peace, or War ?" The Duke of Bridgwater. Yesterday depart- ed this life, his Grace the Duke of Bridgwater, after a short illness. By his active spirit, and his unshaken perseverance, he amassed immense wealth, but the public grew rich with him, and his labours were not more profitable to himself than they were to his country. , 1 Francis Egeton, Duke of Bridgwater, was the Eth son of Scroop, first Duke of that name, by Lady Rachael Russell; was born in 1736, and by the dtiuh of his brothers, succeeded to the title and estate in f? 43. Ilis Grace has rendered himself conspicuous by being the patron, and, it may be said the father of a most important public undertaking which must, in the end, be attended with the greatest national benefit. He was the first man who counte- nanced the plan, and supported the expence, of cut- ting a navigable canal in the kingdom. This great plan he had digested in his mind before he was of age, and as soon as he came in possession of his fortune, proceeded to put it in execution.— Among other estates of which the Duke, came in pos- » ession, he had one at Worsley, in the county of Lan- caster, rich in coal mines ; but which, onaccount of The expcnce of laud- carriage, although the rich and flourishing town of Manchester was so near, was of tittle value. Desirous of working these mines to ad- vantage, he formed the plan of a navigable canal from his own estate, at Worsley, to Manchester.— Accordingly, in the session of Parliament, 1758- 9, the Duke applied for a Bill to make a navigable canal from Salford, near Manchester, to Worsley, on his own estate. His Grace met with great opposition in its passage through the two Houses, and it would now appear inconceivable that such strong preju- dices should have been entertained against a plan of public utility, so apparently advantageous. The Duke, however, succeeded, and immediately set about his work, which appeared to promise so well, that the next year he applied for another act to enable him to extend the line, and to pass from Worsley, over the river Irwell, near Barton- bridge, to Man- chester. His Grace was not remarkable for any active part in politics, though sometimes he appeared in the House of Lords on party questions. He generally followed the politics of his relation, the Marquis of Stafford. But he was a noble patron of many great national institutions. To the Loyalty Loan he sub- scribed 100.0001. all in ready- money, at one time.— He died amazingly rich, worth large sums of ready money. He was remarkable for carrying his own wine with him when he travelled, and he was very nice in his food. The Dukedom is extinct, but the Earldom of Brack- ley goej to General Egerton, Member for Brackley.

His Majesty's Message has called forth among all parties a truly British spirit.— The language of both Houses was such as bccame the Representatives of a people set apart by Divine Providence. as the Conservators of the Rights of Nations. The Chancellor of the Exchequer last night gave notice, that he would to- morrow move for a Vote of Ten Thousand additional sea- men and marines, a number that we are satis- fied will very soon be added to our present force. On Tuesday evening Press Warrants were issued, and in the course of that night upwards of Three Thousand Seamen, as we heard, were procured on the River Thames. The Press Warrants were backed by the Lord May- or, but the City was crowded with Seamen, who flocked round the Mansion House, eager to enter. We have no doubt but that plenty of true British spirit is to be found, voluntari- ly pressing forward to oppose, and with our accustomed success and glory, the unjust ag- gressions of France, should the result ot Ihe present Negociations lead to the renewal of Hostilities.

Yesterday,, in the house of Peers, on the Order of the day being read for taking into consideration his Majesty's Message, Lord hobart said, that to the motion which he should have the honor to make upon this occasion, he could not anticipate a dissenting voice. His Majesty had stated, in his message, that preparations of con- siderable magnitude were carried on in two countries with which we had recently been at war. These preparations, it was but just to observe, might lie fully authorised, up to the whole extent to which they had hitherto been carried, by the state of the French • possessions abroad. But when it, was considered that as his Majesty also informed them, there were dis- cussions of considerable importance now subsisting between the two. countries, the necessity of our mak- ing a proportionate addition to our means of security must be obvious to the unanimous sense of that House, and of the country. He therefore moved " That an humble address be presented to his Majesty, thank- ing himfcr his communication, and that he may con- fidently rely on their co- operadon in such measures as circumstances may appear to require, for support- ing the honor of his Majesty's_ Crown, and the essen- tial interests of his people." Lord Grenville said, he could have wished that the measure had been resorted to at an earlier period. The system of concession had been too long tried ; . if it had been sooner departed from he should have au- gured better for the continuance of peace. Late however as this proposal was brought forward, he hailed it as the dawn of a more vigorous line of pro- ceeding on the part of ministers, and as affording us the only chance which remained for us of effecting the salvation of the country. He hoped, therefore, that the spirit which had began to be manifested would be followed up with equal vigour; and he entertain- ed the firmest convictiofi, that there was not a man in the country but was ready, with the'last drop of his blood, and the last shilling of his property, to support his Majesty in the assert ion of the honor of his drown and the rights of his people. Lords Auckland, Moira, Westmoreland, & c. also spoke in support of the motion, which was agreed to nem. con. A similar motion to that of Lord Hobart was made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the House of Commons.— Mr. Fox said, that no motion would be agreed to with more alacrity than that before the house, but he trusted his Majesty's advisers would well weigh and consider the situation of the British Empire before they again plunged her into a contest. If once more Great Britain should be iavolved in a war which they might conceive just and necessary, but which in fact might, without extreme caution, be the reverse, the responsibility attaching to Minis- ters would be multiplied ten fold against them more than it had been upon their predecessors. Mr. Wyndham supported the motion— war, fie said, was one of the greatest evils which England could en- counter, but it now began to be perceived that there were great dangers in peace as well as war. He observed that responsibility did not attach to Minis- ters in making war, as it did in making a proper war, carried on with energy, and supported by the whole country, which would be the case, should unfortunately such an issue be inevitable— Mr. sheri. dan also supported the motion— in reply to an ex- pression that had fallen . of England being unable to LEICESTER, March 11.

Mayor, It was propofed, and unanimously agreed, that the following ADDRESS should be presented to his MAJESTY:— To the King's most excellent Majesty " We, your Majesty's loyal subjects. the Mayor, Bailiffs, and burgesses of that borough Leicester, desire to approach your Royal Person with tlie molt affectionate and fervent congratulations upon your Majelty's late deliverance from a daring and atroci- ous conspiracy against life and Go- vernment. We cannot that your Majes- ty's satety, which is every British heart, has been so frequently by violence and by stratagem: whilst we yield our tribute of praise to the vigilance and prudence of your Majelty's Minis ters, which have so successfully exercised in detecting and subduing the designs of traitors; We humbly assure your Majesty, that our most devout thanksgivings are offered to that Almighty Ruler who, by many signal providences, has manifested his peculiar favor in the preservation of your person and dominions: ins our most earnest prayer to him, , by whom Kings reign, that the powerful hand which has guided your Majesty securely through circum- Itances of unparalleled danger, may continue to de-. feat every hostile attempt; nor can we doubt; from our late experience of the divine goodness, that the same gracious protection will still be extended to your Majesty and to your Royal House." It was then resolved unanimously, ' 1st. That the Town Clerk be desired to transmit the Address to Samuel Smith, Esqr one of the Re presentatives in Parliament for this borough, and request of him to prefent it to his Majesty. ' 2ndly. That the thanks of this Hall be given to the Mayor, for having by his promptness furnished the Corporation with so early an opportunity of expres- sing their sentiments to his Majesty. by order Of the Hall, W. HEYRICK, Town Clerk. HOUSE OF COMMONS.— Friday* After the routine of the day, Mr. Calcraft submitted his proportion on the state of the Prince's affairs. again disavowed any influence but what arose from motives originating in his own bqsom, and was confident that all parties would be ready to the motion without opposition. In his con- struction of the King's Message, it went farther than the measure grounded upon : it must go farther than the mere application of a sum of money, as that could not bring the Prince any nearer the attainment of the object of his M ••• sty's message. He was not guided in his proposition by any regard to the personal comfort of his Royal Highness, for the bill itself would be adequate to that; but he looked to that state of dignity to which the community was inte- rested in restoring him : with these sentiments lie moved, " That this house, desirous to give full effect to the recommendation in his Majesty's message, of ttie 16th b'ebruary, do appoint a select committee to demand information concerning those incumbrances that impede his ltoyal Highness from complying with the object of the message, by resuming immediately thai state and dignity to which he is entitled," Mr. Erskine made remarks in answer toan allusion of the last speaker, as to his former observa- tions: he took a view of the late debates respecting the Message, and paid some compliments to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, who, he conceived, in his specific proposition, had been guided by that moderation which always characterises him. He thought the motion of Mr. C. went to ascertain the feelings of the House, and was neither a censure on the Message, nor a criticism on the Minister. With respect 10 tlie Revenues of Cornwall, the Attorney General had argued that they had lieen a fund for the susteiitation of the heir apparent ; taking this for granted, if it should appear, on balancing the ac- counts, that the public was noi in debt to the Prince, nor the Prince to the public; then he would be in a situation d. fferent from that of any of his prede- cessors, by having arrived at the age of 40 without having been a burthen to the people. Mr. E. then concluded with observing, that he thought it would be advantageous to the public, and just in the house, to extend the grant so as to make it effectual. Mr. Fuller made some remarks on the wisdom of our ancestors, by keeping the Prince independent of the King, and thought the conduct of the present Prince, with respect to his intention of satisfying the claims of his creditors, noble and magnanimous: He asserted, that the commissioners had deducted the surplus charge of 10 percent, above the prime cost from the different bills, and as this was only the fair profit of every tradesman, it was much to the honor cf the Prince that he could not be happy till they were discharged, Mr. Cartwright,' Mr. Curwen, and Sir I?. Bur- ton, were for the continuance ofthe present system of economy, instead of laying additional burthens on t}) C people. Mr. Hilliard was of a contrary opinion. Mr. Johnstone saw no difference between the pre- sent period and that of 1795, that could make so great an alteration. On the contrary, in 1195 there were a multitude of Jacobins in the country, to counteract whose machinations it was necessary for every branch of the Royal Family to attract popularity and attach- ment. With respect to the Cornwall arrears, the whole sum received from the Duchy did not exceed 234,000/. against which were to be set off 5000J. per annum for the maintenance of the Prince, from 1771 till he came of age; or 250,000/. against 234,000/. He therefore thought it an insult to the country to be told of sacrifices made on the part of the Prince, Mr. H. Lascelles, Sir W. Geary, and Mr. Dent, expressed their opinions on the necessity of support- ing the Prince in his dignity. Mr. Tierney made many remarks on the illibera- lly of objecting to the increase of the income of the Prince, when placemen since 1795 had mostly re- ceived an increase of one- fourth to their salaries, on account of'. he pressure ofthe tilK's. The Chancellor of the Exchequer defended the precipitancy with which the business of the address had been hurried through the house : he was certain that the- Prince had no knowledge of the present motion, and even doubted whether it was consistent with order; in short, Ifc thought that as much had been done as could be, with propriety, and he would resist every thing beyond it. Mr. Fox defended the motion against the remarks of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Mr. Shfridan, in a speech replete with humour, commemed on the speeches of those who opposed the motion, but particularly that of Mr. Johnstone; he thought it a weak thing, after we had thrown away 250,000,0001. for the support of the thrones of Europe, in which we failed, to oppose giving 100,0001. to maintain the dignity of our own, ar object which we could not fail to accomplish. Lord Hawkesbury opposed the motion, as a frif n< to ihe Prince, the Parliament, and the peop! e; after which the house divided : For the previous question IF4 Against it : - - - - 139 Majority — 45 answers to the questions put by the magistrate, but talked in a most incoherent manner of the Angel Gabriel, who, he said, had given him the name of Poorhelp; mentioned the names of several nobility, and continued quoting passages of scripiure. The magistrate thinking he was as much like a rogue and vagabond as a fortune- teller, committed him to the House of Correction, under ihe vagrant act, until the next Quarter Sessions, when the society mean to continue the prosecution. TURNPIKE. UNION- HALL. Saturday a man named Samuel Best, better known by the nick- name of Poorhelp, vas brought before the Sitting Magistrate on a charge of being a fortune- teller. A complaint had been made previously to the Magistrate by Robert Gray, he Agent employed by the Society for the Suppresson of Vice and Immorality, against the prisoner. , John May, one of the officers, was sent with Gay to, execute the warrant, and when they arrived at he prisoner's house, they found him engaged in the ex- ercise of his profession, with a very decent dressed woman, and writing down passages from Scripture. They waited till the prisoner answered her such questions as she wished to be resolved, and then May desired to have his fortune told. The prisoner took bold of bis right hand, and, after examining the inside, and quoting several passages from the bible, foretold him several circumstances that would occur to him, and made him and Gray a present of a curious straw ring of various colours. May then enquired of him his charge, when he told him he never took the money, but the woman below did, whom he called up, and May paid her a shilling in the prisoner's presence. May then informed the prisoner of the other ob- ject of his visit, and in return predicted to the prisoner what was likely to happen to him, and took him into custody ; the prisoner, who was very strong, resisted the officer, who, with the assistance of Gray, had much trouble getting him out of the house ; and when in the street, lie made such resistance as to occasion a vast crowd of persons to assemble who attempted to rescue the prisoner, and it was with great difficulty that May, with the help of other officers, got him in to a coach and brought him to the office. When he appeared before the Magistrate, his dress appeared a disguised garb, to give him the appearance of an old sorcerer, the better to carry on his practice, and work upon the minds of his customers; he had a large wrapping- gown, trimmed with fur; a cap, and a large pair of list- shoes tied round his legs. He pretended to be insane, and would not give any cou- BANKRUPTS-.

They promote Digestion, create an Appetite, remove Obflruftions in the Kid- nies, and consequently are Antidotes to the Stone and Gravel, but for the Expulsion of Worms in Children or grown Persons the whole Materia Medica has not their Equal. Travellers, who are too often obliged to drink all Kinds of Liquors, as well as Seafaring People, should never be unprovided with them, as by frequently taking One or Two of them, they are kept from Costiveness, Scurvies, Fevers, and most malignant Distempers. The Scots Pills prepared by Dicey and Co. retain their Virtue for any Length of Time, and in all Cli- mates; and from the Peculiarity of the Composition, they never run together, an Advantage no othei Scots Pills poffefs: And therefore, for Exportation, or the Ufe of Gentlemeu in the Maritime Line, they have a manifeft Superiority. ff3" Spurious Sorts, of a very inferior Quality, are fold in almoft every Town ; be careful therefore to afk particularly for Dicey's ANDERSON'S SCOTS PILLS, and to obferve that the Words " Dicey and Co.

DEAR SIR, ABOUT Six Years ago, I was afflicted with excruciating Pains in my Legs, which continued for Twelve Months, about which Time they began to swell greatly, and at last broke out in very offensive ulcers, from the Ankle to the Knee, and continued in this Manner for two Years, all which Time I was confined to the House, being un- able to walk, and my Health much impaired ; hav- ing tried every Thing that could be thought of for a Cure. without Effect, I was advised by a Friend of mine to try " your BOTANICAL SYRUP, and upon taking the first Bottle I found my Health become better, and the Ulcers to have a better Appearance, which encouraged me to persevere with your Syrup, until I had taken six Bottles more, during which Time my Health still became better and the Ulcers healed, and I am in as good a State of Health as I have been in for these ten Years past, and my Legs are entirely well, and have continued fo for these 2 Years past.

THE various Degrees and Kinds of Waste or Decay that affect the human Body, though owing to Causes not the same, and attended each with some Symptoms not common to the real, agree very much in this, that the Basis or Ground Work. ua . all is nearly the same. Nervous Patients are generally disordered in the Stomach, and afflicted wiih Loss of Appetite, dry Coughs, weakness of the Voice, Hoarseness, Short- ness of Breath upon the least Exercise, and a Relax ation of tlie whole Nervous System. Some arc af- flicted with a considerable Loss of Strength, Pale- ness, sometimes a slight Jaundice; Pimples often appear in the Face, and particularly about the Fore- head, Temples, and Nose ; leanness; they are greatly affected by Change of Season, particularly cold Weather j Langour of the Eyes; weakness of Sight, and Loss of Memory. Dr. Solomon's Cordial balm of Gilead is happily calculated for the Weak, the Sickly, ani tl « ; Infirm:' In all inward Decays, Debility, Lownefs of Spirits, Weakness in either Sex owing to youthful Impru- dencies, or Nervous Consumptions, its merit stand unrivalled. The ANTI- IMPETIG1NES, the long fought for Remedy for all Stages of tiie Venereal Disease, when Mercury or Antimony, Nitrous Acid, and other Medicines so fashionable of late, prove abor- tive. The Anti- Impetigines being founded on a che- mical and philosophical Basis,' proves of the highest Utility in all Cafes of " depraved Habit with Affec. tions of tlie Skin," hence its Efficacy in Cases of Scur- vy, Scrofula or Leprosy., as well as ia the confirmed Lues, and hence by us sanative Power it expels the Virus out of the System, and restores it to a Convale- scence when impaired by Disease or the deleterious Preparations of Mercury, Antimony, or Aquafortis.
