Dispatches were received on Saturday night r. t the Admiralty from Sir Home Popbam ; ami 011 Sunday the following letter was sent to the Lord- Mayor:— " Admiralty- Office, Jan. 25, One o'clock, A. M. " MY LORD, " I have the honour to inform your Lordship, that dispatches are received from Sir Home Pop- ham, dated from ltio de la Plata, the 30th of Oc- tober, by which it appears tlmt the town of Buenos Ayres had been re- captured on the 12th of August. It further appears that on the arrival of the re- enforcements from the Cape, his Ma jesty's troops bad taken possession of the town and batteries of Maldonado. I have the honour to be, & c. THOMAS GRENVILLE. " To the Right Hm. the Lnrd- Mlyor." The above intelligence was brought bv the Wellington transport. The following account of the re- capture is said to be given from authentic information:— « The military and inhabitants of Buenos Avres, amounting to about 12,000 men, having organized and armed themselves rnti. a military body, attacked the force under Major- General Beresford, con- sisting of about 1450 men, on the 10th, 11th, and 12th days of August. The actions fought on these days were bravely and obstinately contested; the Spaniards fought approaching to a state of fury; many of our brave men were killed and beat down by superior numbers at the muzzle of their guns. This glorious defence was attended with the loss on our part of 165 men and officers, killed and wound- ed, and of 1300 men taken prisoners, contrary to the express articles of capitulation. The troops detained are, 700 of the 71st ( Highland) regiment, 150 of the St. Helena corps, and the remainder, the Marines, and the brigade of seamen; part of which previously reached their ships. General Beresford was detained. Captain Kcnnet, of the Royal Engineers; and Lieutenant W. MitcheTl, of " the 7? st regiment, were killed. The Spaniards lost about 700 incn. The inhabitants of Buenos Ayres are computed at 70,000 persons; many of these fired from the tops of their houses upon our troops as they were marching out of the town " On the 2d of October, a re- cnforccment of between 2 and 3000 men, arrived from the Cape of Good Hope, consisting of the 38th and 47th regiments, and 350 of the 21st Dragoons. On the E8th of that month, an attack was made on Monte Video. It, however, soon appeared that the men of war could not enter near enough to bombard the town, with sufficient effect to cover the landing of the troops, although they succeeded in silencing the batteries; and the attack was given up. The troops were taken to Maldonado, a strong post, near the mouth of the river Plata, rendered im- pregnable by nature; the Island of Gorreti, which is strongly fortified by art, protects them. On this peninsula our troops are securel y and comfortably situated; the men of war flank them on each side. The Spaniards, soon after they had landed there, meditated au attack on them; but they were so convinced of their hcrmetical situation, that the Spanish troops refused to march against them. The enemy suffered a loss of about 00 persons killed and wounded, at the bombardment of Monte Video; we had none killed or wounded, " Our troops arc anxiously and ardently waiting there for re- enforcements from England; when these arrive, no doubt can be entertained ( we are told) of their permanent success, both against Buenos Ayrcs and Monte Video: indeed, consi- dering the great disparity of force, it is surprising that our troops were not all destroyed. V,' c lament to hear that many of our brave fellows lost their lives by assassination. The dishonourable conduct of the Governor of Buenos Ayres, ill detaining our troops and marching them into the interior of the country, after he had signed the articles of capitulation, by which they were to embark on board of transports for Europe or the Cape, is a new disgrace to their nation. No merchantmen had arrived at Buenos Ayres from England, when the Wellington sailed; the Justians, which was going ou an adventure to Botany Hay, and followed Sir Home Popham from St. Helena to Buenos Ayres, was anchored so high up the river that she was taken. " The Wellington sailed from Buenos Ayrcs on the 4th of November, when the Diadem, ltaison- able, Lancaster, Diotnede, Leda, Medusa, Ilowe, Protector, Encounter, and Rolla, were lying there." Sporting.— Mr. Arthur's brown horse Sir David, which was never beaten in the year 1806, is sold for 3000 guineas; the purchaser is as yet unknown to the public.— Mr. Mellish's famous horse Sancho, which fell lame at Lewes in running with Pavillion, is now cantering, and it is supposed that he will stand sound.— Mr. 1". Neale's bay horse Goth, bought of Lord Grosvcnor, is broken down, and it is^' eared will never be able to stfirt again. Shocking Murder.— On Saturday, Mr. Chivers, of Clapham Common, was most barbarously mur- dered by his own servant. IR the morning, the nieces of Mr. Chivers, who reside with him, went in his carriage to take an airing ; Mr. C. who was between 70 and 80, went into his garden to inspect the gardener at his work. The latter, who is a Scotchman, 22 years of age, and full six feet high, about half past eleven ran into'the house in great agitation, exclaiming to the servants, " Lord, what have I done! 1 have struck my master, and he has fell;" and immediately left the house and made for the village of Clapham. The footman went to discover what had happened, when he found his master on the ground apparently lifeless. It appeared that the gardener had struck him with a spade, the end of which entered the lower part of his nose, broke both his jaw hones, and pene- trated nearly to a line with his ears, so that his head was nearly separated. The footman immediately gave an alarm, and messengers were dispatched for a surgeon, to Bow- street Ottice, and in pursuit of the gardener. When. the surgeon arrived, he declared that though life still remained, it could not last long. This proved too true, as Mr. Chivers died in about an hour in great agony. A neighbour's footman arrived at Bow- street Office at half past one o'clock, and gave information to Mr. Graham, who dis- patched Miller and Rivett in a post- chaise in pursuit of the murderer. On the arrival of the Officers at Mr. Chiver's house, their interference was rendered unnecessary, by the gardener having been apprehended previously by one of his fellow- servants in the village of Clapham, and was taken to Wandsworth, before Colonci Fleming, Sir Robert Wilson, and Mr. Newsomb, who were sitting at the Horns public- house. The fellow did not deny the charge, and the Magistrates com- mitted him to llorsemongcr- lane prison. It seems the prisoner is a very passionate man, and has been heard to say— he was afraid his passion would overcome his reason some day. The cause of the rash act, it is Supposed, was a dispute betwoen him and his master. A murder has been lately committed on the wife of William Ward, shopkeeper, at St. Peter's, Thanet, on her return from her daughter's, at Broadstairs. On Monday Andreas Scbostack, be- longing to the 7th battalion of the German Legion, quartered at Ramsgate, was committed to Dover gaol, charged on the Coroner's inquest with the murder. It was stated that she was met by the prisoner, about half a mile from Broadstairs. He dragged her from the main road to a corn- field, where, after having robbed her by cutting off her pockets, he strangled her, and carried away part of her clothes, which were found upon him. Ano- ther man of the name of Webb is « Uo in custody on suspicion of being an accomplice.

HUNTINGDONSHIRE TO WIT. Fines faid by Parishes under the Act of 44th Geo. III. V. 56. rpIIE Fines paid for - I- to the Provisions of tl On Saturday, some French, Dutch, and German Papers, to a' laic date, were received: their contents are of great importance: they contain four French bulletins, viz. the 45th, - With, 47th, and 48th. These, with accounts from Warsaw and Berlin, represent the French as victorious in a succession of spirited actions, up to the 26th of last month, on which day, in particular, a desperate battle appears to have taken place, in which the enemy claim the victory, and state, that the loss of the Russian armv, ( namely, the division of Generals Benningsen and Buxhovdrn) engaged on this occasion, amounted to 12,000 men, killed, wounded, and prisoners, besides 80 pieces of can- non; whilst they modestly mention their own loss as not exceeding 800 killed, and 2000 wounded, including, among the latter, several General Of- ficers.— But, though the bulletins bring the ac- counts from Warsaw down to the Sd inst. they afford no information with respect to some very important operations which are stated to have taken place from the 27th to the 30th ult. an ac- count of which was sent on Saturday from the Foreign Office, to the Lord- Chancellor, the Sitting Committees of the House of Commons, and the Merchants at Lloyd's, in the following official note:— " Bulletin, Jan. 24, 1807. " T. ord Howick has just received intelligence, of the truth of which he has not the least doubt, that an action was fought between the Russians and French on the 27th of December last, which continued three successive days; and on the last of which the French retreated, with the loss of 40,000 slain, and 80 pieces of cannon. The scene of actio- i was Osterneske, sixty or seventy miles from Warsaw. The enemy made tlieir retreat to within eight miles of that place, and were also entrenching themselves at Magdeburgh." The information of his Lordship, we understand, rested on the authority of the Russian General resident at Dantzic, where a bulletin w as published by the Prussians, to the above purport. Mungo Park.— We regret to state a fresh report of that enterprizing traveller's death, who is said to have been killed at Sego, the residence of the King of Batnbarra ( iu Africa), by the natives.

Persons who have not already contracted for the REDEMPTION or PURCHASE of the LAND- TAX charged upon their respective Estates and Properties, Arc requested to take Notice, That by an Act made and passed in the last Session of Parliament, all Persons who are entitled to the Benefit of Preference may enter into Contracts for the Redemption of their Land - Tax, by a Transfer of Stock, within the Period of sixteen Years from the Date of their respective Contracts, by sixteen even and equal annual Instalments, or by transl'ering the whole Stock, or any Part thereof, in Advance, at the Option of the Parties entering into such Contracts. The ADVANTAGES to be derived by this Measure, in the Investment of Money so as to yield nearly Five Pounds per Cent. Interest out of real Estates, without incurring any Expence; and the Security it affords the Proprietors of Instates against any Advance in the Assessment, which tney would otherwise be liable to every Year, upon any Improvement upon the Value of them; and the Priority of Security which the Purchasers of Land- Tax have over every other Incumbrance, wholly independent of, and unaffected by, any Question of Right or Title to the Estate out of which it issues; and the simple and ready Means afforded for its Re- covery ; render this Species of Property an Object well deserving the Consideration of the Public. To which njay b « added, the following material Recom- mendations to the Measure, viz. that Persons who redeem their I. and- Tax are not afterwards liable to be re- assessed, towards making good any' Deficiencies that may arise in the Parish by the Default of the Collectors or otherwise, which is an Event that hath taken Place with considerable Pressure on Individuals in some Parishes, both in this ami other Counties, where Collectors have failed ; and that Persons having the Benefit of Preference to redeem their Land- Tax, and neglecting to contract for the same, leave such Land- Tax open to be purchased as A FEE- FARM RENT, by. any Person or Persons who may first apply to the Commissioners, and make an Oiler for the Purchase thereof. Attendance is given daily at the Clerk's Office, in the Town of NORTHAMPTON, to receive Instructions for Contracts.

Understanding that a vessel is to sail imme- diately' for England, I do myself the honour to transmit to you a copy of a letter, addressed to Lieutenant- General Sir David Baird, in obedience to whose orders I sailed on the 29th of August last, with the 1st battalion of the 47th regiment, for the purpose of joining Major- Gen. Beresford, in South America. " Royal Charlotte ( Transport), off Monte " SIR, Video, Oct. 13, 1806.

" Having arrived last night, I am not, at this moment, sufficiently acquainted with the parti- cnlais to enable me to detail them, though I presume due and full information of this unfor- tunate and important event, must have been transmitted to you soon after its occurrence. " You are aware, Sir, that the command of his Majesty's land forces, at present in this river, devolves upon me, with which, in co- operation with the squadron under Sir 11. Popham, it is my intention to occupy a favourable position, until a. re- enforcement shall arrive, or I may be honoured with your further instructions; and trust that, by an early opportunity, I shall be able to afford you a satisfactory report of my arrangements and operations io carrying vour designs into execution.

Windham, dated Muldo- nado, on the River de la Plata, Oct. Slsf, 1806. SIR, In my letter of the 13th inst. 1 had the honour to transmit a copy of my letter, of the same date, Pu Lion, one of the Municipality, appears to have been the greatest organ of the revolution, lie applied himself with great art and address in preparing the people tor a general insurrection. ' 1 he alius in the town were secreted ready for the moment of action, the discontented assembled every night, and attended to his instructions, and he raised all the rabble of the country by the ample supplies of money with which he was furnished. On the north side of the river, Col. Liniers, a French officer in the Spanish service, and on his parole, successfully employed himsell in collecting people at Colonia. Terror was established, and every person who refused to contribute his assistance to this con- spiracy, was threatened with immediate death I have traced this from very unquestionable au- thority, and so rapid was the progress of the revo- lution, when it first shewed itself, that it was not till the 31st of July, that I learnt by a dispatch from the General, which reached me at Ensenada, on my return from Monte Video, that he was ap- prehensive, from the information he received, an insurrection would shortly be made. On tlie 1st of August, in the afternoon, the Teda anchored off Buenos Ayres, about 12 miles distant; and on my landing on the 2d, which I did as soon as the weather would admit of a boat getting on shore, I found the General had just made a very successful attack on about 1500 Spa- niards, under Pueridon, five leagues from the town, with 500 men, in which h'e took all the enemy's cannon ( I think nine pieces) and several prisoners. The torrents of rain that fell during the 6th, 7th, and 8th, had rendered the roads totally im- practicable for any thing but cavalry, and conse- quently Gen. Beresford was most seriously disap- pointed in his determination to attack the enemy at a distance from the town : in which, had it taken place, I entertain no doubt that his army would have added another trait of its invincible spirit under his dispositions. The enemy, however, by his inexhaustible supply of horses, suffered little inconvenience from the state of the roads, and he was therefore enabled to approach the town by several directions, without giving the British army any opportunity to attack him. On the 10th, in the evening, the Castle was summoned, and on the following day I landed, while our remaining vessels were firing on the justice to the conduct, energy, and prowess of General Beresford, and the officers and soldiers under his command, it has been owing to the limited scale of my communications since the 12th, from the extreme jealousy of the enemy, and not from any indisposition to appreciate their merits in the most liberal maimer; a sentiment which I haie held on every occasion, and publicly marked it in all my former dispatches. 1 have the honour to he, & o. HOME t'OPIIAM. ARTICLES of CAPITULATION. Fort Buenos Ayres, Aug. 12, 1806. " The British General having no further object for remaining in Buenos Ayres, and to avoid an unnecessary effusion of blood, as also the destruc- tion of the property of the inhabitants of this city, consents to deliver up the Fort of Buenos Ayres to the Commander of his Catholic Majesty's forces, on the following conditions:— " 1st. The British troops to march out with all the honours of war, to be considered as prisoners of war, but to be embarked as soon as possible on board the British transports now in the river, to be conveyed to England, or the stations whence they came. " 2d. The British, on their entrance into this place, made many Spanish prisoners of war, which remained on their parole; and as the number of Officers is much greater on one side, and of men on the other, it is agreed that the whole shall be exchanged for the whole, the English transports returning to the place of tlieir destination as cartels, and to be guaranteed as such by the Spanish Go- vernment from capture on the voyage.

Popham Spanish posts; and I learnt that, exclusive ot the ) mentions the arrival of some re- enforcements from Spanish army, which was divided into many co-| the Cape of Good Hope; and details the positions lulling,' occupying the various avenues of the town, 1 the inhabitants were all armed, and sheltered oil to Sir I). Baird, apprising him of my arrival in the ! the tops of the houses and churches, with a design ' of carrying on a war of ambush. Under these circumstances, and the manifest disposition of the enemy to prevent an engage- ment, it was determined to embark the wounded that night, and cross the Rio Chello, for the pur- pose of moving towards Ensenada; but this mea- was in a great degree frustrated by the River Plata, and of my intention to occupy a po- sition on shore, to await his further orders. I, in consequence, immediately recomioitercd, im one of the frigates, which carried me suffi- fr ciently close in shore for the purpose, the works of the place, and the positions and defences in the vicinity of Monte Video ; from which I formed, as the most eligible mode of attack, the idea of being able to carry the town and citadel by assault, on the South face edging on the water, in co- ope- ration with the ships of the squadron, under Com- modore Sir Home Pophatn', which were to silence the batteries on that face, so as to enable the troops to land and enter. The attempt was accordingly commenced, on the 28th, by the navy; but the water proving too shallow to admit of the ships coining sufficiently near to cannonade it with effect, a further effort was necessarily given up. Upon this I deemed it adviseable, with the co- operative concurrence of Sir Home,. Popham, to take possession of the town of Maldonado, as a favourable position for the purpose of refreshing the troops, mounting my cavalry, and carrying oil such other arrangements as might thereafter appear most nscessary. Not a moment was lost; and accordingly on the evening of the 29th, I landed with about 400 men, composed principally of a part of the 38th regi- ment, under (.' clonal Vassal, and advanced against the town, which seemed to be occupied by aboqf 600 Regulars and Militia, mostly., mounted, with one howitzer, and one long four- pounder field- piece, both brass. Notwithstanding we were without any artillery, the enemy were soon dispersed, w ith the loss of their guns, atld about 50 nicti killed and wounded ' I he loss on our side was two killed and four wounded, of his Majesty's 8!} th regiment. To the cool intrepidity of'onr little column on this occasion, much praise is due, as it advanced with the utmost steadinesss and alacrity, and without firing a shot, until sufficiently near to make a certainty of carrying both the guns and the town, which was principally done by the bayonet, notwithstanding the advance was made uuder heavy discharges of grape and musquetry. At day- break yesterday morning, I detached Colonel Vassal to take, possession of the heavy batteries on the beach of the harbour, and on the Peninsula, which precluded any communication for the enemy between the main land and the strong island and post of Goretti, situated in, and much commanding the Hay of Maldonado, and which, in consequence, in the course of the day, surrendered at discretion to a summons sent from Sir Home Popham, and thereby prevented the ne- cessity of carrying it by storm, and the consequent bloodshed that might have ensued. During yes- terday and this morning, the chief part of the re- mainder ofthe troops have- been landed, and 1 have already contrived to mount nearly one- half of my cavalry. I herewith have the honour to inclose the re- turn of such ordnance, ammunition, and stores, as have yet been discovered. 1 haie the honour to be, & c. T. J. BACKHOUSE. [ Col.

His Majesty's ship Diadem, Rio de la Plata, SIR, August 25, 1S06. When the events of war cease to he favourable to any armament, I consider it the duty of Com- manding Officers to state all the circumstances under their knowledge or information with clear- ness and perspicuity, which, either progressively or suddenly, led to a reverse of fortune. In pursuing this course, I feel confident I shall be able to- satisfy the Lords Commissioners of the Admiraltyv. that the liberal and beneficent prin- ciples upon which the Government of General Beresford was conductcd, do more honour to his Majesty's arms, and the character of Great- Britain, than if he had resorted to expedients completely within bis power, which would have effectually annihilated all the efforts of the enemy, and wrested, probably for ever, these countries from the C'pown of Spain. and manoeuvres of his squadron at the attack on Monte Video : but the British ships not being able to approach near enough to act with effect, the attempt was given up. An account of the surrender of the island of Gorreti, which forms the harbour of Malclonado, is contained in his last letter of October 30; he speaks. of it as. an excellent har- bour where the fleet can procure water and pro- visions— Gorreti is a very strong position, defended by twenty 24- pounders in four batteries, command- ing the roadstead, the eastern passage between it, and the peninsula; and the only practical beaches for landing.] , i' ill i in — weather, which became very violent during the night, and consequently retarded the progress of embarkation, though the enemy added a consider- able number of men to the houses and churches near the Castle, aud. advanced by all the streets not under the influence of its fire; in short, Sir, his object was to avoid by every means a general action, and to place his men in such a situation that they could fire at 5ur troops while they re- i on Monday the 12th inst. about five o'clock in the mained in perfect security themselves. ! evening.

Pack, of the 71st, soon'charged and took from him. During this time, - however, fe- enforcements crowded the tops of all the houses commanding the Great Square from- the back streets, and our troops were soon considerably annoyed by people they could not get at. The enemy commanded the castle in the fame way, with the additional advantage of a gun on the top of one. of the churches, which I consider as an indelible stigma against the character of the Bishop, not only from his situation, but the pro- fessions he made. I can easily conceive how the feelings of General Beresford must, at this moment, vlth A have been on the rack; disappointed in his last i conjecture, efforts to induce the enemy to a general engage- ment in the Great Square, bis gallant little army falling fast by shots from invisible persons, aud the only alternative which could present itself, to save the useless effusion of so much valuable blood, was a flag of truce, which was hoisted at the castle about one o'clock. In an instant, there were near 10,000 men iu the Great Square, pressing forward in the most outrageous manner to get into the fort; and even firing at' our men on the ramparts, so much so that it was with extreme difficulty the British troops were prevented revenging this insult; indeed, the General was obliged to tell the Spanish officers, if their men did not retire in the course of one- minute, he must, as the only measure of safety, haul down the flag of truce, and re- com-, mence hostilities; this firmness had the desired effect, and he then sent his conditions to the Spanish General, and they were instantly acceded, to. I inclose a copy of the capitulation, aiid I trust the high and independent language in wbich- it is couched, and the terms dictated by General Beres- ford to an officer at the head of myriads Of people, will do him infinite honour in England, aud obtain for him his.

The enemy confesses to have lost about 700 killed and wounded, in the short conflict in the streets; and if it had not been for the inhabitants, I have little doubt t. lmt the Spanish troops would have been completely defeated, although seven times tlie number of the British forces. Nothing is more difficult than to give their Lordships an idea of the number of men in arms ; but from the best accounts we can obtain, it is thought Pueridon, and the other principal people engaged in this plot, had collected from 8 to 10,000 men iu the country; that Liuiers may have brought over from 800 to 1000; and the town furnished, though armed in various ways, about 10,000, under the secret arrangement of the Magistrates. On the 16th, ill conscquencc of receiving, by Colonel Liniers' aid- de- camp, a letter from General Beresford, 1 dispatched two of the transports to Buenos Ayres, where one arrived on the 17th ; but from the prevarication of the Governor of Monte Video in the first instance, and his subsequent dis- honourable conduct, no troops have yet been em- barked. 1 most sincerely regret, however, that my situ- ation has imposed on me the painful duty of making this report to their Lordships, especially as it is done principally by materials collected from different people, which they probably in many instances deduced from vague mid uncertain con- clusions : if, however, it should hereafter appear that I have failed in any instance to do ample some means took fire, and instantaneously blew up, destroying all the houses in the vicinity, and occasioning the premature death of some hundreds of the inhabitants. At the awful moment, manv families were sitting at dinner with their friends, and thus precipitated into eternity : fathers, mothers, children, servants, all were rapidly hur- ried to one promiscuous grave. Of the number of the dead, various conjectures have been formed: many respectable persons have been dug out. A number of strangers on visits, were among the unfortunate sufferers. Of sixty children in a board- ing- school, five or six only have been saved, but dreadfully scorched. On the Rapenburg, where the deplorable event occurred, the houses, to a large extent, are levelled with the ground.— Close to the vessel which blew up, lay a yacht, on board of which were from 15 to 20 persons, not a vestise of whom was to be found. The cause of this dreadful calamity no one can ascertain, or even The Emperor. Alexander signed a decree on the 15th ult. for the formation of- a volunteer1 militia in Russia.

The frigate is named the Pallas, and the other ships the \ ic- torie and Batavie. The cargoes of the two latter are valued at £. 600,000 sterling; the prime cost in the Spice Islands 1,000,000 Spanish dollars ; they comprised the g.- eater part of the produce of the Dutch spioe establishments of the growth of 1305, and will prove of course, most valuable prizes. The capture was made by a British frigate and a brig( the names of w hich are not mentioned). The Dutch frigate was supported in the action bv u coivette, which, it appears, effected her ( scape.

God forbid, however, that this " practical display of our power, as a great people, should be n::\ e with aviewot holding ou: a temptation to war, or of protracting its mis l ies ; this was not the motive by which he was influenced in submitting this state- ment to the House. Ourmeans, it wculdbeobserved, were applicable to the firm, steady, and sincere pursuit of peace on grounds compatible with the interests and honour ot the country. It was pleasing to know that if we failed in our endeavours to accom- plish the work of peace, we" possessed ample means of prosecuting the war to the most remote and indefinite period.

This year there was a vwicof credit of £. 2,400,000, of which one million wis <*. ue. together with £. 500,000, making the total due on that vote of crcdit of £. 600,000, making a total on Yf Its of credit of £. 3,000,000 ; making altogether a total of supplies of a sum ot £ .48,811,540. Adding to which the sums ot £. 200,000, and £. 280,000, not Ti « ed, on the Five per Cent, or the Loyalty Loan, and the wnal will be of supplies for Great- Britain no less than £. 45,841,340. From whence deducting the shite that Ireland bears thfcreof, being about £. 6.3( 4,275, there will remain a total amount of supply for Great- Britain of £. 40,527,065, for tlie year 1807; the Ways and Means to meet which were the Mali and Pension Tax of £. 2,750,000, the surplus ot the Consolidated Fund of £ .3,500,000; the War T axes ef £. 19,500,080; and happy he was to have it in his power to say, tint these were all taxes raised within the year, without having recourse to any other measure hut their natural operation and encrease, as appears to lie the case every successive year. To these he should add the Lottery, which, taking it at an average of lust year, hc would estimate at £. 450,( KX) The Property Tax, he had also the good fortune to say, was encreased so much beyond the la « year, which was £. 10,500,000, that he could this year estimate its produce at least at £. 11,500,000. Tbewholeof the txci.- e and Customs being averaged at £ 3,500,000, it would then be found that the total and grand amount of the Ways and Means for the vear would be £. 41,100,0J0; and he had the satis- faction of saying, the whole of the amount of the Loan for this country would not exceed this year the sum of £. 12,000,000 ; and it will be seen, that the excess of income, beyond that of expenditure, taking the one at the most moderate, and the other at the highest rate, would not exceed £ 500,000. Having thus stated the present state of the finances of the countrv for the current je- ir, it might be expected that there he would close his laDours. But the Committee would feel with him, that whilst discord travailed to such an extent among the nations of urope, and whilst the firebrand of war was kindling new alarms in every quarter of it, it would be necessary for him to enlarge his vie/.' s, to reach the possibility of future events, and not stop at this narrow and contracted boundary, but to shew to Euro'oe, that, as well as we are able to maintain the contest now, so we shall be able to struggle with it, whilst war itself, according to all human cal- culations, can possibly last— that we may be able to meet the greatest dangers, even those w hich no eye can see, or thought penetrate, and to guanl against every event of war, and its greatest evils. For this purpose he was bound not to stop at the state- ments he had just nvide, but lo extend his thoughts to objects that would embrace the future security of the country in its financial system. It was not his intention, in the prosecution of that plan, to look for new objects of taxation. It redly was a matter of surprise to observe how taxation hai increased during the last 22 years. In the j ear 17S1, they did not exceed £ 10,000,000, and Mr. Pitt thon found it a most difficult matter ev - n to raise that sum ; and now they have ris'- n from that to no less than £. 32,000,000, and the exigencies of the year are met by its resources; and the plan he should submit would be such a;, looking to a continuance of the war for any period, the i ,- untry stisll tic provided against its utmost exigencies, and every year shall provide for itseif, without hiving recourse to any expedient that would in the slightest degree militate against the pledged faith and honour ot the. country ( a general cry of Hear! Hart); and it was a most gratifying consideration, that the plan of finance he meant to propose would leave nothing to chance, bur would embrace at once both certaintv and efficiency. The two great objects which w. re the basis or this new measure, would be the War Taxes and the Sinking Fund. The War Taxes for meeting the expendituie, and the Sinking Fund for reducing the interest of the permanent taxes ; of the latter, Mr. Pitt has all the merit of being its author, and it is one of the most valuable measures of finance that ever entered the head of any Statesman: it was considered of that im- portance by Mr. Fox, i ut it uniformly met his most sincere and ardent applause, and, if he might be al- lowed the digression,' it made the loss of these rival Statesmen the more to be regretted; that neither of them lived to see a favourite arid great political, as • well as financial measure, mature to perfection. for their past.

Other letters from Copenhagen state, that the fact was universally believed there. Bonaparte was at Warsaw on the 81 h inst. but the Russians ha\ e crossed the Vistula, and an en- gagement took place on the 7th atSyachscliaw, on the road between Warsaw and Posen, in which the French have been completely defeated.— Letters from Dantzic mention, that 40,000 French pri- soners have been marched into Koningsburg.

The Emperor Napoleon rises early in the morn- j iu « f, for he sleeps very little, notmore than three or ! four hours a night. After having taken his coffee, | of which he is very fond, as he never drinks less | than thirty cups a day, made very strong, he goes ' to his bath, the water'of which is mixed with some medical preparation, to cure the effects of the impurity of his blood, which is visible upon his skin. As he can never be a momeut idle, and makes the most of his time, he is attended by a person who understands the English language per- fectly, and has the ability of translating it without hesitation into French. He, therefore, reads the English Newspapers to the. L'tnperor, as if he had a French paper in his bauds. This ho calls his hour of amusement, and sometimes laughs at the absurdity and ignorance of the English writers, as he calls their contents. The person who reads to him is instructed not to pass bv tmv expressions, or to soften them, he must read as he meets them ; for he likes to know what '. he enemy thinks and writes of him. Aftef having bathed, he dresses himself and goes to hi:, ctwnber, where he has always some one to attend hint; his Ministers or Officers have the preference, next his private Secretary, He is called at. the hour of dinner, and but half an hour is occupied at that meal, for he j eats very little; and seldom has any appetite, | on account of the quantity of coffee which he drinks from time to time. In the afternoon he is as btisyttsln the morning, but allows himself, sometimes thrice a week, an hour to go to some theatre., or other : but it is never known when he goes, or which theatre he means ' to visit; lie very seldom knows it himself till dinner time, when he inquires for the different plays which are to be given in the night. The Empress accom- panies him always; she is fond of him, and he is very much attached to her. He is always attended by Rostan, a Mameluke, who is very' much attached to him. He was a common man, whose family and relations suffered greatly in Egypt; lionapaiwhen in that country j took a fancy to him, and, after having proved his fidelity, employed him in his service; he raised him from time to time, and he is now a Colonel. He is not only with him every where in the day time, but in the night, he is the nearest to his person. Madame Bonaparte does not sleep with him. Rostan sleeps before the door of his bed- chamber, so that it is impossible it can be opened without disturbing him. When lie is upen his post, the EmperoV thinks himself safe; for he relies more upon this Mameluke than upon all the pages, guards, and watchmen, that are placed in the dif- ferent avenues to his bed- room. ROUSE if COMMONS, Friday, Jan. 23. Mr. WYNNE, pursuant to notice he had given, moved, " That a Committee be appointed to enquire into the state of the Criminal and Pauper Lunatics confined in Prisons in England and Wales;" which was ordered. Mr. WHIT- BREAD gave notice, that on an early day he should move for leave to bring in a Bill tor the better Regulation of the Poor Laws. COI. ONEL CAWTHOKNI. General PORTER rose to bring forward a motion upon the subject of Colonel Cawthorne's retaining a seat in Parliament. He could assure that Gentleman, and the Hoifte, that he was by no means actuated by anv motive of a personal nature towards Mr. Caw- thorne; but he felt himself called on by imperious circumstances, as a Member of the House, to assert the honour and character of the Commons. He said, that Mr. Cawthorne, a Member of the House, now present, having been expelled a former Parliament, in consequence of a sentence of a Court- Martial, which pronounced him guilty of eleven charges out of four- teen, he put it to their honour and dignity, whether the person under those circumstances, who had been expelled by a former Parliament, should be allowed to retain a seat in the present > The sentence of the Court- Martial being read, a debate of some length took place, in which Mr. Cawthorne, Lord Ilowick, Mr. Spencer Stanhope, " and several other Members took apart. The argu- ments were chiefly on the point of torm. The result was, that the House adopted the following motion of Lord Howick :—" That a Committee be appointed, to examine the Journals of the House and Records of Parliament, for precedents of eases of Members who had been expelled that House, and tpr what causes; and also th: cases of persons who, after having been expelled, had been again returnc"! to Parliament, to- gether with the proceedings there.

NAVY ESTIMATES. Mr. THOMAS GRENVII I. E, First Lord of the Admi- ralty, in a Committee, brought up< the Navy Esti- mates, in which a most important measure, in respect to the British Navy, was adopted, viz,, Kan addition of 10,000 Seamen. The Right Hon, Gentleman stated famous Ales — F the existing necessity for increasing number of I' Beers— Matchles Seamen from 120,000" to 130,000; & « d! proposed a va- riety of regulations, tending to strengthen that great bulwark of our national deteaep. The several resolutions being read in the Committee, and the sums voted, were as follow :— £. 240,500, as Wages for the additional 1.0,000 Seamen for 1807. £. 247,000, for Victuals for the above Seamen. =£. 390,000, for Wear and Tear, of Ships for ditto. £. 32.500, for Ordnance Stores, at as. per man, monthly, for the same number. , G. l, l35,134, for Ordinaries of the Navy, for the year 1807. £. 2,134,903, for building Ships oi War in merchants' yards, during the same period. .£. 1,500,000, tbrthe hire of Transports, Sec. .£. 300,000, for sick and wounded Seamen. £. 500,000, for Prisoners of War— all for the year A debate of great length and considerable warmth afterwards took place on the Report of the Army Estimates. Sir John Doyle, Bart, a military man, in an excellent speech, defended Mr. Windham's plan for recruiting the army, and, with much humour, ridiculed Lord Castlereagh's long speeches aiju ob- jections to it: lie drew an admirable and a true character of Mr. Fox: Fie likewise alluded to the Volunteer System, which he had always approved of, and condemned the conduct of Ministers in damping the ardour of that band of patriots. Sir John con- cluded, by beseeching the gentlemen ojt both sides of the house not to dispute about who were in, or who were out, but to assist in keeping our the common enemy to the peace of mankind. The eyes of all the world were directed to the deliberations of the Parlia- ment of this country, which was the last prop of ex- piring liberty in Europe. The enemy was fierce and vindictive, and aimed at our extirpation, and total de- struction.— The debate lasted till half- past three o'clock in the morning.

Dr. Bateman's Pectoral Drops. HE Public never had a more valuable Me- d: cine presented to them, than these inesti- Drops, as a certain Cure in Rheumatic and Chronic Complaints, violent Colds, and consequent Pains in the Limbs, giving Relief in the most violent Fits of the Gout; in short, it has now been so long established, and its Virtues so well known to the Public in general, that it would be needless to say more in its Praise: But great as the gocd Effects are from taking the True and Genuine Bateman's Drops, the Consequences resulting from taking the Counterjeit Sorts, are too frequently as much the Reverse, the ill Effects of which have been often experienced : 11 is therefore recommended to evary one to take parti- cular Notice, that the Words " Dicey and Co. No, 10, Bew Church- Yard," are printed in the Stamp affixed to each Bottle, and signed at the Top of each Bill of Directions— All others are COUNTERFEIT. ( ps" As a Proof of the Necessity of strictly at- tending ti the above Caution, we subjoin the following Letter, as a Proof of the. total Ineflicctcy of Counterfeits. " Having been severely afflicted for a long Time with Pains in my Limbs and Joints, from a bad Cold, I was recommended to try Dr. BATEMAN'S DROPS, and took three Bottles without receiving the least Benefit; when 1 bega.. to suspect that the Medicine I had been taking was not the genuine Sort, and there- fore resolved to procure another Bottle from a different Shop : This I found to be the genuine Medicine, with the Words * Dicey and Co.* printed in the Stamp ; and by taking this one Bottle I found Relief from all my Pains, and am now as well as ever I was in my Life. — To prevent the Afflicted from being thus imposed upon by COUNTERFEITS, you have my full Permission to publif. h this in any Way you please; and, with the utmost Gratitude, 1 remain, Gentlemen, *' Your ever- obliged Servant, » JAMES BIGGS, 11 Serjeant lltli Light Dragoons.
