Vol. LXXXV. No. 11. Ready Money is expected with Advertisements. T Sunday and Tuesday's Posts. From THE LONDON GAZETTE. QUEEXVPAL. VCE, May 9th, 1305. Present, the King's Most Excellent Majesty in Council. HIS day his Majesty in Council having ordered tiie Council Book'to he laid before him, the name of Henry Viscount Melville was erased from the list of Privy- Counsellors. LONDON, May 14. The Emperor of Austria has acknowledged Bo- naparte as King of Italy. A GREAT number of French and Dutch troops have lately been sent to Zealand. As they belong to the different corps cotnposing the army intended to act against England, this movement lias excited a considerable sensation.— Transports to convey about 10,000 men, tire'collecting at, Bergen- op- Zoom, as well as in the island of Walcheren. Some intelligence has at length been received of the progress of the combined Toulon and Cadiz fleets. The Viper cutter, which had " been sent off with dispatches ' foV Sir John Orde, arrived oil' of Cadiz on the ult. after the British the Bay squadron had quitted it. in eOnseqttCttce of which she made sail back for England, and arrived at Plymouth oh Friday. On the 5th inst. she spoke a Guernsey privateer, by whom she was informed, that the privateer had, on the 3d, fallen in with the combined fleet of the enemy, consisting of nineteen sail of the line and eight frigates, and sloops, in lat. 44. long. 15. \ V. steering a South- west course. Accounts are received of the safe arrival of Admiral Cochraue's squadron at Barbadoes. Mr. Pitt has informed the agent for Jamaica, that Government, fully aware of the danger which threatens the West- India Islands, have lost no time in adopting measures for their protection; that exclusive of the force under Admiral Cochrane, naval and railitwry forces have been sent to the West Indies, which will act according to circum- stances. It is confidently asserted, that the Treaty of Alliance which has been so long in negotiation be- tween our Government and that' of Russia, has been at length ratified, and received in this coun- try. It is added, that Government, in expectation of this event, have been for some time making arrangements for the remittance of the subsidy that will be required ; and that an immense quan- tity of dollars has been purchased on their account. — If the above Treaty be acted upon, the subsidy, it is said, will be Jive millions a year.' Two Bills, in which the clergy are much in- terested, arc now in progress before Parliament. One, thft Stipendiary Curates Bill; the other, the College Advowson Bill. The first fixes the salaries of Curates, and gives a permanence to their resi- dence, & c.; the second is to enable Colleges to improve their property, by increasing the number of their church livings, & c.: to this may be added, that the Lord Chancellor, on Wednesday, brought in a Bill for encouraging planting in church, college, and hospital lands; which was read a first time, and ordered to be printed. Friday, in the House of Commons,- Lord A. Hamilton moved, that a Committee be appointed to exalnihe the matter of thu petitions against chir Corn Laws. A long debate aro^ e on this motion; on which the House divided.— For the motion, 03 — against it, 40.— Majority, 23, The Committee was then appointed. Mr. Coke ( of Norfolk), Mr. Western, and se- veral other Members, of the landed interest", were against the above Bill going into a Committee, or that any discussion should take place thereon.— As the Bill lias never been acted upon, no ground of complaint upon that score can be urged against it; but the actual complaint is, that the passing of the Bill has produced erroneous opinion^ and injurious effects: to counteract these, Mr. Pitt and others voted for and carried the question ill' favour of a Committee. R. A. Cox, Esq. and Sir W. Rawlins, the late Sheriffs of London, committed to Newgate by order of tiie House of Commons, for their conduct - at the Middlesex Election, were on Friday brought up to the bar of the House, and there being re- primanded, were discharged. His Majesty has signified his intention of visit- ing Oxford, and examining all the public buildings of that University, the beginning of next month ; from thence he proposes going again to Chelten- ham, and afterwards proceeding to his marine residence, for the summer, at Weymouth. The Chancellor yesterday delivered judgment in the cause respecting the guardianship of Lord Hugh Seymour's daughter, which had been claimed on the " one part by Mrs. Pitzhcrbert, and on the other by Lord Eustou and the relations of, the family. The Chancellor decreed the guardianship of the child to the relations of Lord Hugh Seymour. The Ballet had a new and most abrupt finale at the Opera- House, on Saturday. In consequence of a peremptory message from the Bishop of Lon- don, that the entertainment must not be protracted beyond midnight, so as to encroach on the Sunday, the curtain dropt at twelve o'clock, sans ceremonie, in the middle of the second act. It was not the Opera only that was cheeked tin Saturday. The Noble Marchionesses who have, for some time past, given concerts on the Sunday evening, were apprized, that if they. continued, the profanation of the Sabbath, they would be proceeded against, with the utmost rigour of the law, A long and curious correspondence took place, which was followed by an interview with the Marchioness of Stafford. The result of the whole was, that Lady Salisbury, whose turn it was to give the concert on Sunday night, having no longer the privilege of the Lord Chamberlain, thought proper to countermand the invitations she had given, and thh- e was no concert at licr house'.' Scotland has this year actually contributed to supply her southern neighbours with wheat, having sent no less than 10,000 quarters to London jn one week: that country also exported large quan- tities of. oats last year to Portugal. Lord Stourton has purchased the great Yorkshire estate of Thoriiville Royal, of which he took possession last week. The purchase money is said to be £. 220,000. The following very singular wager was decided oil. Thursday last: — Air. Reed, jun. of VVestdcan, near Chichester, engaged for a wager of .£. 50, to find out, . from a flock of 200 ewes, the lamb which belonged to each. The lambs were kept in a separate place from the ewes. Mr. R. com- pletely succeeded, to the satisfaction of all present, in finding the mother of each lamb.—- Other, con- . siderable bets were depending on the eveut of this curious underlaying.

Lord MULGRAVE declared himself a decided friend to the_ Catholic claims, but thought the present period improper for discussing them. Lord HOLLAND spoke at some length in support of the motion. Lord CAMDEN was against it. The Bishop of DURHAM thought it highly essential that the principles of the Established Church should be inviolably preserved: he professed himself no enemy to toleration, but said, he could not see any security in any concessions which could be made at present. Lord REDESDALE, in arguing against the motion, entered into a minute examination of the tenets now held by the Irish Catholics ; which, he contended, were such as rendered it impossible, without immi- nent danger to the existing constitution, to admit them to arty share of political power. Lord CARYSFORT, on account of the lateness of the hour, suggested the propriety of adjourning the debate. The Earl of. DERBY then moved, " That this House do now adjourn to Monday next;"— which, after a few words in support of it, was agreed to. So large an attendance of Peers has not been known for many years— there were 167 present. Monday, May 13. The debate on the subject of the Irish Catholics being declared to be resumed, Lord SUFFOLK rose. He wished their Lordships to give a voluntary and cordial assent to the prayer of the petition. The time must arrive when the boon would lie granted, and it was surely better that it should be granted freely than extorted. Every one knew that the Catholics'were taught to look to the Union as a measure which afforded them the strongest hopes of a complete emancipation ; but the ohly result which they had yet experienced, was an enor.

HOUSE of LORDS.— Friday, May 10. ROMAN CATHOLIC PETITION. TOED OitEKVTTi. F. moved the order of the day J for their Lordships to take into consideration the Petition presented by the Roman Catholics. The Petition being read by the Clerk, his Lordship ob- served, tha- he hoped the matter of the petition would be impartially and temperately discussed, and he had no dotibt but the petitioners would meet with ample justice from the House. His Lordship then entered at largi upon the grounds and reasons why the Ca- tholic claims should be allowed, and answered the objections that had been urged against them. His Lordship then said, " If there be any force in the opinion that you ought to refuse to enter into the consideration . of this petition, it can arise from this circumstance only, that we are arrived at the point where it ir. necessary to make a stand, and concede no more. I doubt whether it would be prudent for the Legislature to say, we will now tie up our hands. Whatever system is adopted by the Legislature, it ought to be on principles immutable, and containing lines of distinction so clearly marked, that no man can mistake their tendency or operation. Now, let ine ask, whether the point on which these laws stand is of this description ? You have conceded to the Ca- tholics all the civil. rights necessary to fill all offices, with the exception of seats in Parliament, and the heads of professions* If there is anv disaffection among the Catholics, it is among the lower orders; ami your remedy is, to exclude those persons from that share of respect which YOU could give them. I should think, that sound policy ought to be the re- vere. If you confide in the higher orders, you ought to give them . power and consideration ; and if you are obliged to impose restraints, impose them on those whose dispositions you distrust. Does any mart be- lieve that there would be less, practical advantages from not excluding three or four Peers, of whom we , may state, that we do not distrust their loyalty, for they have given as signal proofs as any men in his Majesty's dominions of their zeal and good conduct? If they came into this House, do you believe they would persuade you to abolish the Hierarchy of this country? Would you be afraid of their influence composed of Catholics, rtoing into the House of Commons ? Few can be so ignorant as not to percei ve what little benefit the cause of' tlif Catholics would derive there. Supposing even fifty Catholics obtain seats in the House of Commons, could they persuade them to overturn the Protestant Government? The same sort of observations were urged at the time of the Union between Scotland and England. There were not persons wanting who told , ymt, that bv admitting the Scotch Members, you i thens which attached upon the latter. ' He could not would, overturn the Hierarchy of the Church of Eng- assent to their present claims, because the whole land You have had for a century sixteen Peers, and j frame of our Constitution excluded Catholics from forty- five Commoners in the House of Commons; and j any shareof political power. At the time he was in I a.-, k your Lordships, not whether they have over- Ireland, he was convinced that a more loyal\ body turned'the Church of England, not whether they have j did not exist than the Roman Catholic nobility and overturned the Monarchy,' but whether you can point gentry; but he could never bring himself to consent out a single instance of a Scotch Member, who has wished to place a Presbyterian Government in the stead ot the present Government? Surely then we ought not on such grounds to adapt a measure tending to throw so humiliating a stigma on a respectable cla s ot subjects." His Lordship, after a most elo- quent speech, moved, " That this House resolve itself into a Committee, to consider the said Petition." Lord HAWKKSBURY rose, and concurred with the No" bl: Baron, that the question before the House should be entered upon and. discitssed with temper and moderation, and went over all the arguments urged by tl* Noble Mover in favour of the Petition. His Lordship then said, " My view of the case is pre- cisely that of the reverse of the Noble Baron. I think you are giving them very little, but that you are parting with much from yourselves. You will give away ' that which not enriches them, but makes you poor indeed.' You would give them power — you would give them that which would make them the State itself. But would the Roman Catholics be sa- tisfied with the repeal of those laws ? Would not they ask for something further ? And when that something further shall be asked, will not your Lordships find much difficulty in refusing it ? The terms of this petition have been referred to with much approbation of their moderation ; yet from this petition it is easy to collect that thev are not perfectly satisfied with the test thev are obliged to take. Thv/ y agree, indeed, to take it, but allude to it as a hardship imposed upon them. I mention this circumstance to shew, that we are not yet at the end of the complaint; and I can assure your Lordships, that we never shall get to the end of'it, until the test be given up. It had been stated, in another place, that it was proper to get fid of all tests This principle has been completely avowed. Certainly this is the fair way of stating the question, and your Lordships have now only to look at the consequences. It will be recollected, that when the Roman Catholics of Ireland obtained the elective franchise, they came forward with an Address to the Throne, at the end of which they alluded to their future expectations. In this manner every concession has given birth to a new demand, and your Lordships must be sensible, that very important questions must follow this, if the present demand should be con- ceded." His Lordsnip concluded a most argument- ative speech with opposing the motion. The Duke of CUMBERLAND opposed the motion. He professed himself a zealous friend to toleration, with respect to every denomination of christians ; but could not, and never would, give his assent to extend it so far, as to endanger that constitution, civil and re- ligious, which it was the pride and duty of his family to protect. He was convince;) that the sentiments of the nation were against the present question, as ap- peared from the petitions which had already been pre- ' seated, and others which were preparing. Earl SPENCER supported the motion of his Noble Friend If he could think either the motion brought forward by his Noble Friend, or the speech with which he so eloquently supported that motion, could J ' ord GRENVILLE, who replied at considerable length, have, in the most distant degree, the tendency attri- Lord SIDMOUTH spoke in explanation.— The House bated hv the Noble Secretary, of injuring the church and ally, the preroje of the people in the choice of their Reptesents in Parliament. The one remained unalterably. ched to the Ctown, the other was ot a very differcomplexion. On the subject of the concessions 1; a violation of his Majesty's Coronation Oath, liDserved that this Oath had been framed and sanaed by Parliament itself ori- ginally ; and surelyrliament would never have committed to the cof a Sovereign, a power of refusing his assent tceasurcs which the Parliament itself might think Hy advisable and expedient. It had been said than opinion entertained in a certain quarter was nical to the measure; but he could answer, that? the constitution such an opinion was unknowt the House, and could not be entertained, or ever rht to be acted upon. The arguments of the Honentleman were then directed to some minor points^ d he dilated upon them with great force. His rems, towards the conclusion of his speech, were verjrong. He observed that the British Empire was e^ ed in a war of much expence with an enemy who ( not wage war against us bv her navy, her army, • commerce, or her internal resources of money, bby her great and united popu- lation. What, on thioctrary, was the situation of this Empire: we had ; r or five millions of our peo- ple, all subjects of i King, who laboured under disabilities which craied and destroyed their ener- gies, rendered them usss to a degree', which would be done away were the disabilities removed. The instant they obtained participation in the common rights of British sufcftets, these men would come forward in the irniy and navy ; they would augment both the ofiensire aid defensive means of the Govern- ment; they woild strcngthen the cuuitiy itself; they would have th: effeqt of lifting it u? from the state into which" it had alien, and the country at large would have caise to bless the day tint had given this respectable cLss of citizens a partiiipation in the coiltmon right- of the people.

LONDON", May 16. It appears, by advices received at the Admiralty, that the combined fleets of the enemy, which sailed from Cadiz on the 10th ult. had " returned to that port previous to the 22d. The intelligence was brought by the Prince of Wales packet, which sailed from Lisbon on the 4th instant. This is so contrary to all expectation, that if the information was not so precise, it could not obtain belief. Various conjectures, but all equally vague, are given respecting the cause of this return. It has been said that the crews mutinied, on finding that they were destined for the West Indies; but this is founded on no authority, and on very little pro- bability. It has been even stated, that an action had taken place with Lord Nelson, but according to all accounts received of Lord Nelson, he must have been at too great a distance; and besides, it is not credible, that if the enemy's fleet got into Cadiz on the 22d ult. after the engagement, news I in "! f u^ Patrmc, nt. , ... •-..,.., ; » . , .', . , • , i • i 1" the Office ot Lord viscount Melville, with his I of it should not have been received at Lisbon [ PrW;, y .

T a MEETING of the principal INHAB1T- ANTS of the C I T Y and COUNTY of COVENTRY, convened pursuant to public Requi- sition at the COUNTY- HALL, on THURSDAY the 9th Day of MAY, 1305, FRANCIS PERKINS, Esq. inthe Chair, Resolved unanimously,— That it appears to tilts Meet- ing, from the Tenth Report of the Commissioners appointed by Parliament to examine into public Abuses, in the Department of the Navy, that there has been, I.

JL. .1 1 luesday before the § ? lect Committee ; after the first, it was moved tiiat lie should be called in again, which was debated b\ v the Committee for l. ord OXFORD supported the motion. The Earl of BUCKINGHAMSHIRE said, that having been the person who, in the Parliament of Ireland, proposed the Bill of 1793, in favour of the Catholics, he could not permit himself to give a silent vote on this occasion. By that Bill they were not only ad- mitted to a parity of civil rights with Protestants, j but were even exempted from certain political bur. to their having any share of political power, while they continued to acknowledge the jurisdiction of a foreign Potentate. Lord CARLETON was adverse to any further exten- sion of the rights of the Catholics. He was the more jealous of conceding any political power to the Catholics, as he knew that they still anxiously looked to a period, when they might be able to reverse all the grants made under the Act of Settlement and Ex- planation, and in the reigns of Elizabeth, James 1. and William III. Lord HUTCHINSON supported the motion. Tile Archbishop of CANTERBURY enumerated the various privileges which had been conceded to the Catholics, by the 18th, 22d, 31st, and 33d of his present Majesty, and expressed his surprize, that after such a series of concessions, a petition like that on the table should be brought forward. Toleration was the brightest ornament of the Church of England; but the privileges now sought were inconsistent with the very idea of toleration. They struck at the Act of Settlement; and tended to gitfe n. it only equality, but eventual superiority to the Roman Catholic reli- gion in a Protestant State. Lord ALBEMARLE was decidedly favourable to the prayer of the petition. The LORD CHANCELLOR said, that he had waited for full information on this subject, but it was one on which he could not prevail on himself to tem- porize. He was of opinion, that any Noble Lord coming into that House, on an occasion like the present, under the sway of party prejudices, could not discharge the duty which he owed to himself, to the House, to his Sovereign, or to the country. In the prayer of this petition he could discern nothing which was not adverse to the law and constitution ot' this realm. It had been mid, that This prfitfon was backed by four millions and a half of Irish Catholics. This calculation he believed to be erro- neous; but, at all events, what their Lordships had to consider, was not the number of the claimants, but the justice of their claims. He concluded by giving it as his decided opinion, that to grant the prayer of the petition, would be to do away the very essence of the constitution. The Duke of NORFOLK argued very strenuously in favour of the petition. The Karl of WESTMORLAND said, that he should not have addressed their Lordships on this occasion, if he had not been a party to several of the large con- cessions made by our gracious Sovereign to the Irish Catholics. He would not, however, agree to the measure now proposed, because he had not made up his mind to repeal the Acts of Conformity and of Settlement— the solemn Act of Union— and even the King's Coronation Oath. The Bishop of ST. ASAPH, Lord EI- LENBOROUGH, the Earl of CHICHESTER, Lord AUCKLAND, Lord HARROWBY, Lord BOSTON, and the Earl of LONG- FORD spoke against the motion ; which was supported by Ea_ rl MOIRA, Earl DARNLEY, Lord KING, and thollcs with power, from their attachment and devo- tion ( even at present) to tiie Apostolic See, and the inflammatory conduct which had been pursued by se- veral priests. He severely commented on the charac- ters tit' many of those persons who signed the petition ; and warmly dissented from the motion. Mr. GRATTAN, in a splendid and eloquent speech, supported the motion, and concluded his address in j a considerable time, when, ( in a division taking place, the numbers were—( i and 6; on which the 1 Chairman gave his casting voice for . Mr. I'itt being [ called in again: and, in consequence, it is under the following animated words:—" By granting the ! stood that he was further examined for nearly two petition the Catholics will not get six seats in this House; but yoq get three millions of spirits. Let your liberty, like your money, circulate every where, but centre no where. Why will you ran in search of old prejudices like a grown- up child, and buy foreign- ers with subsidies, instead of subsidizing the affections of the Catholics by kindness? Bath Catholics and Protestants should be united; both should ficht the hours.

He certainly agreed with tile Noble Secretary, that this was a question which ought to be discussed with calmness, candour, and moderation, but was sorry to observe the Noble Se- cretary himself the very first to depart from that temper anil moderation which had so uniformly cha- racterized the whole speech of his Noble Friend. As to the assertion, that the Catholics of Ireland acknow- ledged any allegiance to a foreign Power, he was at a loss to know where it was found. They acknow- ledged, indeed, the supremacy of the Pope as a spi- ritual director; but, by the most solemn oaths that could bind the veracity of man, thay had repeatedly disavowed all temporal or political allegiance to any foreign Power whatever, and . pledged themselves by every test required of them, to the firmest allegiance to his Majesty, and the established constitution of • these realms; and unless their oaths were to be believed, there could be no security for life or property in any state where they exist. There was obvious, cause, from recent experience, to apprehend, that so long as the system of restraints and disqualifications was kept up against so great a majority of the people of Ireland, jealousies and disgusts must rankle in their bosoms, and constantly expose the lower orders divided- For the motion Proxies .... 49 I Against it Troxies .133 . 45 - 178 Majority against the motion, 129. — o> sSJ ® » < r>~ HOUSE of COMMONS.— Monday, May 13. ROMAN CATHOLIC PETITION. The Petition from the Roman Catholics of Ireland having been read, Mr. Fox rose, and in a speech which fixed the attention of the House for three hours, he stated the importance of the subject, as being of a nature more grave and serious than any that had for a length of years been under consideration, he pro- ceeded to the full discussion of the complaints stated in the petition. These he observed were of a descrip- tion highly interesting, as they involved in a material degree the dearest interests of the Empire ; were they attended to as they ought, there could remain no doubt but that the strength and resources of the Empire would be wonderfully increased, without detriment or hurt to any individual or any body of men. The question was of no less importance than whether Parliament, in its wisdom, would suffer four- fifths of the population of Ireland to lie under disabilities which rendered them incapable of offices, or of serving as Members of the Legislature. He was aware that especially to'listen to the machinations of any de- I » Sre; lt difference of opinion existed in regard to signing conspirators, who would convert their griev- < ^ foncess. ons being granted_ to the Catholics; signing conspirators ances into a stimulus but of insurrection.

LONDON, Muy 17. THE account of Lord Nelson having been seen on the 13th of April off Catfhagena, steering for the Straits, was, it is apprehended, incorrect: it is now positively ascertained that his Lordship was higher up in the Mediterranean at a much later period. Letters have been received by Go- j vernment from his Lordship, which state, that on j the 19th ult. he was cruising off Sardinia, when he received information of the French fleet having / passed the Straits: he immediately sailed with his ) w!?.' . ,, . • , • r- 1 , P, , „ • • . , J ., r ., / solicits a Continuance of those Favours she has whole fleet, consisting ot twelve sail of the line, » hitherto been honoured with, which it will be her for the ^ traits; and, as it is known that the com- bined fleets were in Cadiz on the 22d, there is greut reason to hope that his Lordship would arrive off that port time enough to prevent their sailing again, or; at least, to follow them very closely if tfiey had again ventured to sea. In consequence of the return of thc enemy's- fleets to port, Admiral Collingwoqd's squadron will not for the present proceed to the West Indies, but be employed 111 watching the enemy in the Channel.

Mr. Pitt, in re- ply, assured the House, that whenever his Ma jesty's Government should be enabled to advise his Ma- jesty to make such communication, they wopld avail themselves of the earliest opportunity of so doing; but at present, the relations between his Majesty and the Powers alluded to, were not such as to enable him to state any thing with precision. I11 reply also to an observation of Mr. Fox, 011 the same subject, the Minister stated, that he was not enabled at present to mnke any communication 011 the subject with certainty. A communication was made to the House of Commons lust night by Mr. Leycester, the Chair- man of the Select Committee, stating that the re- gulations and restrictions under which the Lords, at a late conference, had agreed to allow Lord Melville to be examined, were such as, in the opinion of the Committee, would prevent them ex- amining Lord Melville so as to promote the object of the enquiry.— The proceedings of the Com- mittee are understood to be very interesting and important. Parliament will not be prorogued before the Report of the Select Committee appointed to in- vestigate the transactions of Lord Melville and Mr. Trotter, is made. 1 Yesterday morning eleven Volunteer regiments of the metropolis marched into Hyde Park, for the purpose of being brigaded by Majors- General thc Earl of Banbury and l'lrt ps, and then being reviewed by his Majesty. His Majesty came on the ground at ten o'clock, in very great state, preceded bv a large escort of horse, six grooms in full Royal livery, with led horses, and other usual attendants, and was received with the customary Royal salute; he then rode down the line in front," and returned in the rear, when Wiim tal- fin bis station under the shade of the trees, the brigades went through several evolutions in a good style. The . whole passed his Majesty in review order before one o'clock.— His Majesty loiked extremely well, and was received by the people with loud, acclamations. On Monday se'nnight, at KingVNorton fair, Mr. Cotterill, of Row- Heath, had his pocket picked of a pocket- book, containing 19 guinea bills, ik. 6. bv two boys, one only 12, and the other 14 years old.— The manner of committing this theft is so dexterous, that we shall state it as a caution:— The boys, we learn, went into a public- house, and placing themselves 011 each side of Mr. Cotterill, called for some ale; when one of them poured it into a glass, held it up to the light, and artfully requested him to observe its fineness,— whilst the unsuspecting man was doing which, the other youth nimbly robbed him as above. The boys immediately decamped, but being soon after pursued, were apprehended, and the notes found upon them. \\ f ANTED immediately, An APPRENTICE * V to the CHI LDBF. [ J LINEN, & c.

A letter from Hamburgh of the 28th ult. mentions, that the object of Russia is to endeavour to bring about peace, and that her efforts to this end will precede any warlike operations. It is expected, that M. Novolsitkoff, after laying before Bona- parte, at Milan, the outline of his projet of peace, will come to London, for the purpose of explaining to this Court more fully the views of the Emperor Alexander. The plan of pacification about to be submitted to France, according to Continental report, pro- poses that Bonaparte's title, as Emperor of France, shall be acknowledged; that England shall retain Malta, and Russia the Seven Islands; and that late copious rains, will, it may be safely asserted, entirely remove any doubt of a deficiency of water on that summit during the ensuing Summer.

" Botanists haye. long known that the blight in corn is occasioned by the growth yf a minute parasitic fungus or mushroom on the leaves, stems, and glumes of the living plants; in other words, botanists have found, that in those instances where a blight in corn has taken place, there is found growing in the straw of the corn, a plant some what like, moss on trees, or mushrooms on land; ami therefore Sir Joseph Banks has offered to the consideration of farmers, engravings of the plant itself. By a common magnifying glass, you may see a striped apjiearance on the surface of a straw; this is caused by alternate longitudinal partitions of the lmrk—- the one imperforate, and the other furnished with one or two- rows of pores • of months, shut in dry and opeir in wet weather.' Bv these'pores, which exist only in the leaves and glumes, it is - presumed that the'seeds of the fungus. * aiti admissitm, and at the bottom of the hollows to which, they lead, they germinate and . pn$ h- their minute roots into the cellular texture beyond the Irark, where, they draw the nourish- ment, by intercepting the sap, that was intended bv nature for the nutriment of the grain; th'c corn of course, becomes shrivelled in proportion' as the fungi-( the plants growing on the straw) are more yr less numerous. Hence the lighter the corn, the less is the proportion of ftwr to bran. Somv corn of last year's growth would not yield a stone of flour from a sack of wheat; and no doubt, in some eases; the corn was so completely robbed of its flour by the fungus, that, had it been thrashed and carried to the mill, the proprietor would have found the produce bran only, with scarce an atom of. Hour for each grain.— The next observation is, that every species of corn is subject to the blight; that spring corn is less damaged by it than winter, and rye less than wheat. The spring wheat of Lincolnshire was not shrivelled last year, though the straw was in some degree infected. Barley was in. some places considerably spotted; but the whole of that grain being en- veloped in the basis of. the leaf, the fungus can in no case gain admittance to the straw. Barley, however, has risen lighter from the flail this year than was expected.— Most probably the leaf of the corn is first infected before it shoots up into straw, and the fungus is then of an orange colour; after the straw has become yellow, the fungus assumes a deep chocolate colour: each individual is so small, that every pore on a straw will produce from 20 to 30 fungi, and every one of these will produce at least 100 seeds; hence a few diseased plants must very soon infect a whole field of corn. — Farmers have long admitted that wheat in the neighbourhood of a barberry bush seldom escapes the'blight. Botanists observe that the leaves of the barberry are very subject to the attack of a yellow parasitic fungus, larger but otherwise much resembling the rust in corn. Most probably the fungus of the burberry and that of wheat are the same species, and the seed is transferred from the barberry to the . corn; thus misletoe delights to grow on the apple and hawthorn, but it flourishes oedasiona Uy on trees widely differing in their nature from both of these.— Sir Joseph then offers a few conjectures respecting the malady, lie observes, that early in the spring the fungus will require as many weeks to bring it to maturity as it does davs in the heats of autumn; but a few plants of wheat infected are sufficient, if the fungils ripens its seed, to spread the malady over a whole parish.— The chocolate- coloured blight is little observed till the corn is approaching very nearly to ripeness; it appears then in the field in spots', which increase very rapidly in size, and are in calm weather somewhat circular, as if the disease took its origin from a central position. May it not happen then that the fungus is brought into the field in a few stalks of infected straw, uncorrupted among the mass of dung laid in the ground at the time of sowing? Against which Sir Joshua urges, that the clover leys, on which . no dung from the yard, was used, were as much infected last autumn twelvemonth as the manured grasi;.— An observation then is offered for farmers, whether cattle in the straw- yard thrive better or worse, on blighted than on healthy straw?— Next cornea an important fact, that the seeds of wheat rendered so lean and shrivelled, that scarce any flour fit for bread can be obtained by grinding them, will, except in the very worat cases, answer the purpose of seed corn as well its tin; fairest and plumpest sample, and in some respects better, for . three bushels of su. cb corn will go as far in sowing land As four bushels of large grain. The small" grains towards the top of an ear of wheat have an ample abundance for all purposes of vetcgation.

THE CORDIAL BALM OF GILEAD IS the most absolute Remedy for such Diseases as are attended with the following Symptoms, namely, a great Straitness of the Breast, with Diffi- culty of Breathing; violent Palpitations of the Heart, sudden Flashes of Heat in various Parts of the Body; at other Times a Sense of Cold, as if Water was poured on them; flying Pains in the Arms and Limbs, Back arid Belly, resembling those occasioned by the Gravel; the Pulse very variable, sometimes uncom- monly slow, at other Times very quick ; Yawning, the Hiccough, frequent Sighing, and a Sense of SutL focation, as from a Ball or Lump in the Throat; alternate Fits of Crying and convulsive Laughing; the Sleep unsound, and seldom refreshing, and the Patient often troubled with horrid Dreams.— Much has been said by interested Individuals against Medi- cines that are advertised ; but there is a very important Observation to be made respecting the Cordial Balm of Gilead, that unless its Operation was gentle, safe, and efficacious, it could not have attained the unex- ampled Demand it has acquired; for, as it has rarely the great Advantages of a persuasive Advocate at the Ear of the Patient, so Nothing but his Conviction of its Virtues, by its salutary Effects, can induce Perse- verance ; and yet reasonable Perseverance is certainly most requisite to enable even the happiest Combi- nation of Chymicals and Galenicals to root out Chronic Diseases, and restore the Valetudinarian to Health. Its well- known Characteristic of promoting Lon- gevity has been long maintained; for, by keeping the Constitution, as it were, in continual Repair, it pre- serves the Body in Health and Vigour, and prevents premature Decay. It requires no particular Confine- ment, nor Attention to Diet. Prepared by Dr. SOLOMON, Gilead. Bouse, near Liverpool, in 10s. 6d. and 33s.
