ThA alarm which that unfortunate event of the mutiny hail at firft excited has fubfided, though for a while the moft fatal confequences were apprehended. It remains inexplicable, how tbe orders', fo puerile in regard to the object-,• fo dangerous' in their application, could have been i'llilfed by any man of common fenfe. Regulations fo cnxcomical . could hardly have been expected from a young fenfign, a fortnight after he had joined his regirmsnf, and whq imagined all - military virtue confifted jn the fh. ape of a , hat,. o r ithe cut o f » mufta'chio.. But when, fuch pitiful changes in drefs and appearances involved the inveterate and invincible, religious prejudices of the nsfives of India, and by provoking thgfe prejudices menaced the foundation of our Indian Empire, it betrays fuch a degree of lliougliLjeliiolS and' ignorance to have attempted \ he ih110vat10.11, that one is wholly at a lofs to conceive where thu fatal orders in queftiou could have originated.

In return for the Loan or Subfidy which we jjuhdenftand is to be granted to Raffia on the part rof the BritiIh Government, the Court of Peterfburgh has teftified its gratitude in a manner - which cannot but be welcome to the mercantile intereft of England ; it is faid, that the Ruffian jMiniflry have prefented to the Euglilh Government, the draft of a Commercial Treaty, which puts the Brilifli trade to the Baltic en a level with that of tl. e native Hullian merchant, from port to port. The greater part of tbe Alien Duties, as far as refpe< 51s Giea; Britain, are to be taken tiff; and it is even expected, that Rullia will employ her mediation - with the Court of Denmark, to piocgire, in favour of England', a moft conliderable tliminutioi. on the duties paid at the Sound. The latter would be an ineliimable advantage to the Britifli merchant. Tbe Emperor of Ruffia receives flrong proofs of the affection and fidelity of his f u b j e f b .

J'he French fay, that the Ruffians bad. a great many Generals killed and wounded on the 26th of December; yet. they do not give us the name of one of them ; though, as they took all the liofpitcils, according to their own account, they - tytiuld have been able to have found out the names. But let- us. fee what tlitf Frenc h fuffered jn killed and woundefl. The following are the names of the Officers, whom their own Bulletins confofs to have been killed or wounded:— Gen. Fennwoiles, killed; Marl'- a^ Lafnes, aacl Generals Vedel, Claperede, Treiihard, Bouitard, and Rapp, flightly wouivded;' Colonels Si niely and Bartbelemy, flightly wounded ; Barj- as, Aid- de- carnp to Marshal Beifitrs, wounded; Boifen, Aid de- camp to Murfttiili La- fin s, and Cutial, Aid- de camp, to General Sucltet killed ; and Sfgur, Cauip-' Marllial to Bun iparte,' made pnfouer.

ORTEK FEE a a The Dublin Papers into fin us, that a meeting of the Catholics of Ireland, fummomd by tl} e Earl of Firfgai, was field on Monday le'nnight at D'Arcy's, in Earl- ftreet, for the purpofc of taking into confideration the propriety of petitioning the Imperial Parliament for a complete emancipation of his Majefty's Subjects, profefiing the Catholic Religion in Ireland. Upon the motion of Lord French; the Chair was taken by the Right Hon. the Earl of I-' mgal, who informed the Meeting that he had been induced to requelt iheir attendance there, by a fen fe of what he deemed his d u t y ; with the intent that they might in a free, independent, yet difpaffionate ftyle, exprefs their feveral opinions on a fubject of the higheft concern to the Empire at large, and of vital importance to Ireland. HisLordfliip finifhed by declaring, that he underftood from the firft authority, that Government meant to tranfinit to ; iem an anfwer expreffiveof how far tbeir application was likeiy to obtain thecoontenance of t h e Executive. Mr. Keogh then rofe, and, after a fpeech of fome length, cprfcluded by moving the following Refolution:—\ " Refolved, That this is a fit and proper time to prefer a Petition to the Imperial Parliament, for the complete Emancipation of the Catholics of Ireland?" which was carried unanimoufty. Forty- me Gentlemen were immediately appointed to prepare and forward the fame. It is faid, that the example of Dublin will be followed by all the counties and great towns in Ireland. In order to procure fuch an unity sf aftion, circular letters have been difpatehed in great numbers to the leading Roman Catbohcs iu every part of the country. A very lingular robbery was committed on Sunday night, about half- paft eleven o'clock, in the fields leading from Pentonville to Clerkenwell: A gentleman returning to town, who had been ( pending the day with fome friends, in Pentonlireet, was accofied near the New River Head, by a woman in very getnteel attire, who- begged he would proteft her from the infults of a man who had been taking'fonre liberties with her, and who was then following her at fon » e little diftance. The gentleman promifed her his protection ; bttt they had not proceeded 50 yards together before he was knocked down with a bludgeon, by a man who had come up nnobferved behind him, and who, with the alfiftance of the woman, who it appears was an accomplice, robbed him of his watch and about 31. itfs. i n c a f h; and, after giving him feveral more blows on the head with the bludgeon, left him fenfclefs in the field, while they made their efcape. Original Anecdote of Garrick.-- When Packer, who lately died, was a young man, and engaged at Drury- lane Theatre at a low falary, he was one day attending tbe rehearfal of a rvew play, at a time when Garrick was occupied on tbe fiage in an interefting fcene, and accidentally let fall his h a t : a circumflance which much 1 dilconcerted the Manager, who on fueh occafions confidered the fmalleit interruption as a very great crime. At the end of the fcene, he ftrutted in great wrath up to the offender, and was proceeding to pronounce the dreadful fentence of difmiffal f r om tbe theatre, when Packer, in humble guife, befought his attention for a moment.—" Indeed, Sir, faid he, I am not morally refponlible for this adh My nerves, Sir, my nerves, could not withftand the eledlric ( hock of your wonderful delineation of this new part."—"' { Ia ! What ? Ha I" faid the little great man, lowering his tone-—" Well, well, do take care in future.''— Ten fbillings a week were added to Packer's falary from that day 1" MIDDLESEX SESSIONS. Wednefday, Robert Tot/ nl was indifle'd for a ( hocking alfault on a child of the name of Beeby, feyen years old ! The defendant, a' earpe- nter and undertaker, in Wood- ftrcet, Spa fields, was the intimate friend of the falher of the child, a Watch- moveinfen't- maker, in the fame ftreet. It appealed by the ftatement of the child, who delivered her teltimony in the mod; clear and artlefs manner, that the prifoner behaved in the moll bTiilal manner towards her, and that llie has ever fince been very ill. Th « Jury found the prifoner Guilty ; and the Court l'entenced him to be imprifoned one year, and to- Hand in the pillory at Clerkenwell Green, in the firfl month.— It was with difficulty that tbedefeudnnt was pro- K& ed from the indignation of tlie populace.

Baron de Tracy, a native of Normandy, har « ing married an Englilh I^ ady there, was fo violently inftigated to > ealoufy by certain anonymous letters, that he- plunged his dagger intohis wife's breafl, caught, as be c o u r i e r e d herr in the arms of hei feducer. His wife Matilda',. only wounded, fled with her infant foi>, leaving her hufband to tbedri rafting convittion ofher unfullied honour, and to the ftill more diffracting farniife that the veffel in which fire departed was loft in i u paffage. The caafe of all this mifery was Fitthardin- g, a youth, who, having entitled in the Baron's fervice, received from frim, for fbme trilling offence, the ignominy of a public pnmlhmeut ; and of this the impofture he pra'ftifed ot> the Baron by the anonymous tetters was but tbe commencement of his revenge. In the prefect play, we find the Baron an Englifh Lord, andj Fifzharding, the Captain of a Danifh banditti, infefting the woods adjacent to the Baron's C a file. Fitzharding, luckily for the completion of his revenge, intercepts a I'riar, who is on his way to confefs the Baron ; he affumes the Monk's difguife, and proceeds thither himlelf, having previcrufly planned with his feltow- robbers an attack upon the Caftle, at tbe tolling o- f the curfew- bell. Near to this fcene of aftion refided Matilda, and her foil Robert-, the former of whom, frotw her reclufenefs, had obtained- the reputation of a witch; and the latter, front diftrefe,' had j u ft jo'medFitzharding's banditti. This bandittir in their prowliugs, meet with Florence, thedaughlerof the Baron, who had left herfather'sCaftte in male difguife, on account of bis refufal to heF umoi> with Bertrand, the companion of her earlieft years ; the robbers bear her a\ vay to- their eave, where ( be overhears the whole plot t o befiege ber father's cal'tle. The robbers, conceiving her to have been too attentive to their difeourfe, give her over to Robert to be difpatched. The tender heart of this youth in iniquity is melted by her co- nfeflion o f h e r fex! and he'not only preferves her, but feciirea her efcape to his mother's cottage. Robert, alio, ( hoots an arrow, with a written difeovery of the robbers' intention, into the confines of the caQJe, where it is picked- u p and delivered to the Baron in the midft of his conference wilh the fuppofed Friar. The Baron gives it to Fitihmd'mg to read, wbo, of courfe perceiving its drift, evades the communication of it to the Baron. In the mean time Florence is brought into the Baron's prefencc, under bis order for the feizure of every foul in Matilda's collage. Flo- renee dc.- ekpes enough of Fitzhardirrg'i dark defign to put the Baron's caftle in ( he utmoft readinefs foi* attack ; and jult .^ s. Fitzharding bad led the Baron into the deeded recefs of the caltle, and had difcovered hitlifelf ami his , bloody intentions, we find the form of Matilda interpoftng,- and corifeffing herfelf the long- lolt wife. oftbe Baron. v The next fcene is, of cotrrfe, the fruftration of Fitzharding's plot, and the happy union of Bert rand and Florence. It will eafily be perceived, that this is a drama of the fonibre caft. It difpfay3 in a ftrong light the wild workings of the ferocious paffitriis— revenge a; rd remorle are forcibly depiited. The everftinging admonitions of the one, and inextipguilhable rage of the other, are touched with the band of a mafte'r. Love here makes but a fecondary and fubordinate im. preffion. If, in The Honey- Moon, Mr, T. Jias fhewn with what art he could animate the lighter fcenes of comedy, in the prefent drama he has- drawn forth intelledtual refources of a higher kind, which prove, that with nearly equal ( kill and force, he. can arreft the attention by > yhat awfully inltrufts, or powerfully agitates thp, hetsrt. That his characters or his plot can claim the praifd of novelty, we fhall not affert. The Dramatilt's objeft mui't be to obtain a command over the emotions of bis audience, £ EB. aa. aud, by controuling, to purge and purify the paffious. In this relped, the play of The Curfew h eminently fuccefsful. The vigour of the feutinients is for the moft part fuitably exhibited in equal vigour of expreffion. Indeed, Mr. Tobiu was mailer of a ftyle that has almoft every tiling to recommend it, viz. force, elegance, fplendour of imagery, felicity and jultnefs of illuftralion and companion. We liave feldom feen a new Plaj more ably fufiained by tlie performers. Frequent applaufe aqcompanird the piece from the beginning to the end, which broke out in a uiiiverfal t/ tirft when the play was announced for a fecond reprefeutation. The Prologue had many ftriking lines, and the Epilogue many pretty points.— The Houfe overflowed in all parts. OLD BJILEY.

The fieges of Seh'wtitfnck and NeifTe proceed at ihe fame time. " Geueral Vidtor, ou his way to Stettin, and in a carriage with his Aid- de- Camp and a fervent, was made prifoner by a party of 25 Iluffars who were fcourihg the country. " The weather has become cold. It is probable that in a lew days the rivers will be frozen. At the fame time the weather is not more fsvere than it ufually is at Paris. The Emperor daily reviews fome of the troop6 on the parade. " All the magazines of the army are in courfe of being arranged and fupplied with provifions. Bifcuit is baked in all the Departments of the Commifi'ariat. The Emperor has givenorders that gr » at magazines fhould be formed, and that a great quantity of clothes Ihould be manufactured in Silelia. " T h e Englifh, who can no longer make anybody believe that the Ruffian?, the Tartars, and the Calmucks, will be able to devour the French army, l- ecaufe, even in the coffee- houfes of London, it is known that thefe worthy allies will not bear the fight of our bayonets, now* call to their aid dyfentery, peftilefiie, and all manner of epidemic difeafes. " If ihefe plagues were at the difpofal of the Cabinet of London, there is 110 doubt that not only our army, but our provinces, and the whole manufacturing clafs of the Continent would become their prey. In the mean time, the Engl- ifh publifh, orcaul'e to be publiflied, in every lhape, by their numerous emiffaries, that the French army is deftroyed by difa'afe. By their account, whole battalions die, like the Greeks at the beginning of the fiege of Troy. This, indeed, would be. a very convenient mode of getting rid of their enemies ; but they muft abandon all hopes of obtaining it. The army never was in better health. The wounded are recovering, and the number of d « ad is very ineonfidera, vi! e.

This day at one o'clock, the different bodies of the State were admitted to an audience of her Mtfji fly t h e Emprefs and Queen. , M. Monge, Prefident of the Senate, addrefled the following dilcourfe to her M a j e t t y :— " MADAM, " It is four months fince the heart of your Imperial and Royal Majefty was deeply aflliCted at the approach of a war, as inevitable as it was unforeletn, and Which could not but caul'e mere French blood to flow. • The blood of France is fo precious ( ( exclaimed yoilr Majelty); and mult it then be poured forth to check the follies of an ill- adviled Monarch ?' OH this principle your Majelty was dt- firous of peace. " The Emperor, whofe vigilance it was attempted to deceive by the fallacious proteltations of perlbnal friejidfliip, was not, perhaps, at his departure, without hopes of avoiding a war, for which there was 110 juft catife.-- The outrageous threats of a young and inexperienced Prince did not difturb the tranquillity of his fuperior mind ; and on the eve of the firft and laft battle, when he dilplayed to him the danger of hi? pofition, and the certainty « f his riiifl, he opened to him not only the door of fafety but even of honour. The Emperor, therefore, proved his folicitude for peace. ' But is it peace that our implacable enemies are anxious to obtain ? No, Madam, it is long fince they flattered themfelves with the hope of blotting out the name of France from the lift . of nations, as they had effaced that pf Poland. Perhaps they ftill indulge it. With refpeft to France, they have renounced every lentiment of morality. No promile engages them, no treaty birds them ; they are without honour in their conthifl, and the truth iflues not from their lips; and " f the King of Piuflia at length took up arms, it was hecaule he was ceriain that, without that, he would have been pdignarded in the midft of his Court, as was tlie cafe with Paul I. 3? " l'iie God ot Empires is at length wearied with. ; o much iniquity ; nor can it be denied that he means to make ufe of France in ol der to reform the molality of Kings, fmce, iji his . goodnels, he has samiital its destinies to the hands pf an Hero, whom he has hern pleafeij to endow with e- viry great qtfality ; to whom he defgus to unfold the ways of his wilaom ; arid whofe arm he f'ultains in battle. " Madam, the Senate lays at your Majefty's feet the tribute of its profound lei'peft, as well as the l> o.- t linage of its admiration for all-. your virtues.

Warfaw, Jan. 27, " Eighty- four pieces of cannon, taken from tlie RiitlianS, are ranged before the Palace of the Republic at Warfaw. They are tliofu which wert . tsrken ' f'r< « m Generals Kaininfki, Bennigfen, and . Buxhovtlen, in the battles of Cxarnowo, N'afiellk, Pultulk and Golyrnib ; and are the very fame that the Ruffians drew along the ftreets of this City with fo much ofteni'talion, when lately Uiey marched through them to meet the French. It is eafy to conceive the elf rt which the light of fo grand a triumph muft produce upon a people delighted with feeing the humiliation of enemies who have fo long ; u. id fo cruelly ofiprefiedtheiii. " Five thou fund prtfoners have been fent to France, twe thoufand efesped in the firft moments ol coniulion, and, fifteen hundred have entered among the Polilh troops. " Thus b; tvie lire bailies with the Ruffians coft them a great part of their artillery, all liieir baggage, and from 25,000 to 30,000 men, killed, wounded, or pri loners. " General Kaminlki, who had been reprefented as another Siuvarrow, has juft been disgraced. It is reporled, that Cifcneral Buxhovden is in the lame fituatlon: hetice it appears, that General Bennige n now commands the army. " Some battalions of light infantry belonging to Marlhal Ney's corps, bad advanced twenty leagues • from their cantonment's ; the Rutlian army took the alarm, and ' made a Movement on its right. The battalions have returned wiihin the line of their cantonments, without fufiaining any lofs. " During this period, the Prince of Pontn Corvo took pofl'eilion of Elbing and the country fituated 011 the borders of the Baltic. " The General of Divifion Drouet entered Cbtiftbourg, where he took 300 prifoners from the regiment of Courbieres, including a Majoc and feveral Officers. " Colonel Sainl- Genez, of the l£ th dragoons, charged another of the enemy's regiments, and took 50 pril'oners, among whom was the Colonel Commandant. " A Ruffian column had gone to Liebftadt, beyond- the little liver Pafl'arge, and had carried off half a company of the Volligeurs of the Sth regiment of the linr, who were at the advanced pofts of the cantonmPnt.

( Signed) T. GRENVILLE. Tu the Right Hon. the_ Lord Mayor, PARTS Papers to the 13th, and Hamburg and Altona to the 11th inftant, have arrived.] The 54- th Bulletin of the Grand Army, dated Warfaw, Jan. 27, tends to corroborate a report brought by the Datiilh Mail, " that the divifion of Marflial Ney has been defeated.'' The Bulletin fays, " fome battalions of light infantry belonging to Ney's corps had advanced 20 leagues from their cantonments; the Ruffian army took the alarm, and made a movement on its right. The battalions have returned within the line of their cantonments without fuftaining any lofs.', :— Is it to be believed that thefe battalion sadvanced 6' 0 miles without a motive, and retreated without a check I No. It is evident that, whatever was their objeft, they were defeated and forced to retreat. No date is affigned to this occurrence. The French Armies have, doubtlefs, had an efcape from a moft imminent peril, if not from an entire defeat; and, asfiibfequent circumftance, mutt compel them to acknowledge this fa of, t hey are endeavouring to do it by piece- meal. In. the Fifty- third Bulletin, CJen. Viftor is acknowledged to have been taken prifoner. In the Fifty- fourth, the corps of IVJarlhal Ney is found to have had a narrow efcape. The Fifty- fifth Bulletin contains the important ifi'telUgence, that the Forte, has'declared war ggainjlliujitt. The faft is fo pofitively and circumftantially ftated, that it feems to admit of no doubt. The formal declaration took place on the 30th of December. On the preceding day, the Ruffian Arnbafiador and all his fuite left Conftantinople. A confiderable part of this Bulletin is taken up with the details of the a d i o n o n the 25th ult. between Bernadotte's divifion and a corps of Ruffians. It appears to have been hotly contefted. — The French, at one time, appear to have had much the worft of the affair. One of their regiments loft its colours ; but, as they fay, they were afterwards recovered. The Ruffian account of this affair will, very probably, inform us that this trophy remained in their poffeffion. The Bulletin eftimates the lofs of the Ruffians at 1500 that of the French at 500. The following is ftated in fome of the Morning papers, faid to be on the authority of a Ruffian Officer arrived with difpatches. " O i l the 31ft day of December, five days after the battle of Pultufk, Bonaparte ordered two regiments to make an attack upon one of theRuffian out- pofts; which they declined. This refufal fo exafperated him, that he ordered the twy regiments to be immediately ( hot. They were accordingly furrounded by fevera! other regiments, and every man put todeath. TheRuffianOfficer fays, that he was told thisanecj|> te by a'perfon who decl& red that he had been an e t c witnefs of the ( hocking fcene ! ! !'"— We think it incredible. In the predicament In which Napoleon is placed, the experiment would, have tjeen too hazardous. The Revolution ha? fhe^ vn what be French can bear ; . but . there . is a point beyond which human* forbearance inanliot eudnje. KIA tiSiiil of this kind was made by DtiiAotW'Pefililf^ S, when he " ftimulate< l'?. the young Parifituss to . it. tack the A u f r i a n entreucbmentSj by re^ ien- tfrj d'feharges of grape- lliot en their rear. This tilKid Paris with mourning, but it covered hirn willj difgrace, and was t b e c a u f e of In is flight and d « - fertiDii.- ltAnothfr rumour iS; that a:, battle thudtaken place, in which Bonaparte had been Ihot in the groin, and expired in the arms of his friend Davouft ! — We are lorry to place in fuch bad company a report which is much more probable, namely— that the Ruffians,- having received their reinforcements, were preparing to attack the French in their cantonments. Bonaparte, it appears, has gone from Warfaw to infpeft the cantonments of the army ; Jiis departure is preparatory, we may prefume,' to the • refumption of more' aftive operations. It is highly probable that he will attack- the Ruffians, ' and endeavour, by a nevv effort, to cancel the difgrace of his failure on the 26th of December. The King of Pruffia has, though much too late, difmiffed Haugwitz and Lucchefini.

An article from Tonningen, dated January 2S> fays, " The Ducliefs of Weimar and fuite arrived here a few days ago, in company with his Excellency the Count A lopeu9, Ruffian Ambaffador to the Court of London ; they immediately embarked on board his Majefty's gun- brif Starting. The accounts they bring are moft pleafing. The Ruffians have completely beaten the French ; and it is thought there is not a Frenchman left on the Polifli fide of the Viftula." Anarticle, dated Nowomiafto, Jan. 2, fays---. " Marffial Augereau has had his head- quarters here for fome days. The ceffation which the retreat of the Ruffians has procured us, affords fome refpite from the continual fatigues we have fuftained. Provifioas are not only fcarce on the banks of the Viftula, but even thefe are procured with difficulty ; we fee no white bread, nor is the black very abundant: the common price of a pound of beef is half a crown." C O M M O D O R E Sir Home Popham arrived in town late on Tuefday night, from Weymouth, having failed from the River Plata on the 27th of . December, and made the quickeft paffage ev « r known from thence, viz. in 50 days. Admiral Stirling, who fuperfeded him in the command in thofe feas, arrived thereon the 22d December, but without any troops or tranfports whatever. Sir Home Popham has been put under arreft by a Warrant from the Lords of the Admiralty, in order to take his t r i a l ; but he is allowed to be at large on his parole. Shortly after the arrival of Admiral Stirling! an epiftolary correfpondence took place between him and Sir Home Popham, relative to the beft mode of effetting the re conqueft of Buenos Ayres ; in which the latter expreffed his opinion ." that Monte Video fhould be the firft object of attack,- as affording every facility with refpeft to the other ; that the attack of the army Ihould be made hy the peninfula of the town, while the armed veffqls ffiould attack the fouth face of that fettlement." Letters from St. Helena, dated the beginning of January, ftate, that Governor Patten had been ordered to be fufpended, for having weakened the garrifon of that place, by fending a part of the troops to Buefios Ayres. . Of the vefTels fent to Buenos Ayres, in cOnfequence of the alluring profpetts held out by Sir Home Popham to the Merchants, the following had arrived at the River P l a t a : — The Duke of Kent, Robinfon ; Anna, Eaftw. ick ; Spring Grove, Greenwood; ASiive, Minerva, L'Invention, and Le Breton, from London ; John Bull, and Nelfon, from Jerfey ; Venus, Paint, and Hood, from, Gwernfey ; Juno, Hacker, and Horatio Brown, from Liverpool; Kitig George, and Medxiwj.— They wero . left, with .

He replied, it was no m a t t e r ; for as I had refufed to-( hare the danger, I Ihould not ( hare the booty. We came to the Black Horfe in Dyotftreet, had half a pint of gin, and parted. Haggerty went down in. ( hoes, but I don't know if he came back in them. The hext day I obfe. rved that Holloway had a hat upon his head which was too fmall for him. I allied him if it was the fame he got the preceding night. He faid it was. We met again on the Monday, when I told Holloway that he afted imprudently in wearing the hat, as it might lead to a difcovery. He put the hat into my band, and I obferved the name of Seeele in i t .— I. repeated my fears. A t night H< lloway brought the hat in a handkerchief, and we went to Weftminfter Bridge, filled the hat with ftones, akid, having tied the lining over it, threw it into the Tbanies. The witnefs was then crofs- examined. He f a id he had made no other minutes of the tranfaftions he had been detailing, than what his confcience tpok cognizance of. It was accident that led to his dtfclbfure. He was talking with other prisoners in Newgate, of particular robberies that had taken p l a c e ; and the Hounflow robbery and murder being flated among others, be inadvertently faid that there were only three perfons who knew of that tranfadion. The remark was circulated and obferved upon, and a rumour rao, through the prifon, that he was about to turn " nofei" ( i. e. informer) ; and he was obliged to hold his tongue, left he ftiould beill- ufed. When at Portfmouth, on board the hulks, the compunctions of confcience came upon him, and he was obliged to diffipate his thoughts by drinking, to prevent him from divulging all he knew. At laft he was queftioned by Sir John Carter, an officer foon after arrived from London, and he made a full confeffion. He admitted that he had led a vicious life, that he bad been concerned in feveral robberies, and had entered and deferted. from feveral . regiments. He had ferved in the Eaft and Weft London Militia, had enlifted in to the 9th and 14th Light Dragoons, and had been in the Armv of Referve. He added, that he was afliamed a: id forry at what be had been, and would endeavour to mend his life in future. . A f t e r fome wittieffes had been examined, in order to bring the two prtfoners and the accomplice together about the time of the robbery and murder ; and feveral Police Officers bad been called to fliew that they were all three confidered to be of reputed bad character, and connected ; Juftice Nares was examined, who gave an account of the feveral examinations the prifoners underwent before him. In thofe examinations Haggerty denied any knowledge of Holloway, and faid he bad never feen Hanfield, the accomplice, in all his life. They, both denied ever beingat Hounflow in their, lives, or, that they had ever entered the Black Horfe, or Turk's Head public haufe in Dyot- ftreet. Another head of. evidence was to prove that they bad been feen at both the public- houl'es mentioned, alid that they had alfo been feen in Ho'unftow and its neighbourhood. The next and principal head of evidence was that collected from the prisoners own mouths. It appeared, that they Were confined in feparale apartments after their Separate examinations ; b. ut. as there wasonl'y. a flight partition betwixt them., they were enabled to. converfe t o g e t h e r .— Daniel Bijhap, an-. officer of Worffiip- ftreet, fwore that he was polled in a privy near the place where the prifoners were confined iep- arately. He there heard them talk together, and took- minutes of what paffed- between them. Tee general tendebey of this was to ( hew that tho prifofaers laboured hard to be of one ltory ; that they, made ufe of many harfh expreflions concerning Hanfield, and ( noft anxioufly expreffed their hopes and fears, as they thought. the- cafe feeii^ d to t a ke a favourable or. an unfavourable. turn, ' l'hey. profieffed . the utmoft fincerity towards each other ; and when.- tite cafe was fuppofed- to go, hard: with them, one refolved on having Mr. A l l e y and the other Mr. Knapp for his counfel. They confided to each other, that they had denied having any acquaintance with the accomplice ; and, in fad, ^ eyapnujatpd to. eacb other the Whole of their examinations. In one of thefe converfatioiis^ lhe following colloquy pa fled-: Haggerty—-" Where did he fay We parted- after the murder f" ' Halbway. At f l o u f r f l o w .

The prefence of a large Britilh fqUadron would probably have no iiicotifidera'ble weight in deciding the resolutions of the Porte. But if the conteft bet- ween the French and Ruffians is to continue, it is not eafy to fee how the Turks wilf'be able to maintain their independence.— Which ever party be vidorious, the Porte will prabablyibe the victim : fitch is the impotence to which that once powerful Empire- is reduced. The dreadful gale of Tuefday night- has done much damage toour ( hipping. Letters from Deal give a m'oft diftreffing account:-— At day- light on Wednefday morning eight veffels were feen on • fliore between the South end of Deal and KingfdoSvti, a diftance of - about d \ miles ; — t w o Weft India men were wrecked d o l e by Deal Caftle ; — two more fhrps near Wa- lmer'Caftle ; — four mdre vefTels are On lliore to the Southward of Walmer Caftle ; feven or eight were feen in the Downs difmafted ; between 40 and 50 parted their cables, and were blown out of the Downs.

Benjamin Hanjield, who was the principal witnefs on the part of the. Crown, gave his evidence with an uncommon degree of fteadinefs and perfpicuity, opnfiderjng the fituation in which he iSooth Hedepofed- nearly as follows : — " I have known Haggerty eight or nine years, and Holloway fix or feven. We were accuftonaed to meet at the. Black Horfe and Turk's Head publichoufes in Dyot- ftreet. I was in their company in the month of November 1802. Holloway, j u f t before the minder, called me out from the Turk's Head, and afked me, if I had any objection to be in a good thing ? I replied I had not. He faid it was a " Low Toliy," meaning a footpad robbery. I alked him when and where. He laid he would let me know. We parted, and two days after we met again, and Saturday, the 6th of November was appointed. I alked who was to go with us. He replied that Haggerty had agreed to make one. We all three met on the Saturday morning at the Black Horfe, whefi Holloway faid, our bufinefs is to " farce" ( meaning to rob) a Gentleman on Hounflow Heath, who, I underftand, travels that road with property. We then drank for three or four hours, and about the middle of the day we fet off for Hounflow. We flopped at a public- houfe, the Bell, and took fome porter. We proceeded from thence upon the road towards Belfont, and expreffed our hope that we Ihould get a good booty. We flopped near the eleventh mileftone, and fecreted ourfelves in a clump of trees. While there the moon got up, and Holloway faid we had come too foon. After loitering about a confiderabletinie, Holloway faid he heard a footftep, and we proceeded towards Belfont. We prefenliy. faw a man coming towards us; and on approaching him we ordered him to flop, which lie immedediately did. Holloway went round him, and told him to deliver. Hefaidwe ftiould have his money, and hoped we would nut ill- ufe him. Thpdeceafed puthisband in his pocket, and gave H a g g e f t y his meney. I demanded his pocketbook. He replied that he had none. Hollowayiufifted that he had a book, and if he did not deliver it, he would knock him down. The deceafed again replied that he had no book, and Holloway knocked him dawu. I then laid hold of his - legs. Holloway ftood at his head, and fwoj-, e, if he cried o, ut he would knock out his brains. T h e deceafed again faid, he hoped he would not ill- ufe him. Haggerly proceeded to fearch him ; when the deceafed, made, fome refiftauce, and ftruggled fd mwh,, that we get aerofs the, road. I: le, cried out feverely,; an- d, as a carriage was c o d i n g up, Hullo way faid, " ' f a k e care, T w i l l filejrce the b r,'' and immediately ftruck him feveral violent blows on the head and body. The deceafed heaved a heavy groan, and ftretched, himfelf out } ifelefs. I felt alarmed, and foid> rt " John, you. have killed the man ;',' HpUoway replied, that it was a lie, for he was-. only ft united. I laid I would Hay no longer, and irrvnemediately fet off towards London, leaving., 11, ol - If) way and Haggerty with the body, I came to Houiiflow, and .( topped at. the end of the, town • for. near an hour. , Holiowa. y and ( laggRrty then, came up, and l » iid, they ha'injoiKVliit trkk ; and, a* s a token- put the tleceaftd's hat into, my hand.

He then pointed out what lie: called, eontradi& ions in his evidence, and c a l l ed Mr. Males to witnefs for tbofe oontradictions. Sir.

It appeared from the teftimony of Emily Bijfet ( who cohabited with the deceafed), that. the pri i'oner had come to lodge, four days before the unfortunate event, in the lame houfe, and i « a back apartment of the lame floor. That two xiiglits before ( be tranl'aCliois, in confequenee of fonie altercation between the prifoner and a man whom the had brought to her apartment, and • « vho complained of being robbed of 18s. the deceafed had called in the watch, and feat tbe pri- 1' oner to the watch- houfe, where ( lie was detained all night; that on Ctiriftmas Day, about five itl t h e afternoon, as the witnefs and the deceafed f a t at tea, they heard a rap at their room door ; t h e deceafed opened it, and, feeing nobody, doled i t again. Immediately another rap was heard ; l i e went a fecond time, when the witnefs alked l i im why he did not take the candle. It was t h e prifoner who rapped, and faid Ihe wanted to f p e a k to the deceafed, who went out to the landing- place. The prifoner afked him why he trou b l e d his head about fetching the watch to take neu up fome evenings fince? and the witnefs immediately heard her e x c l a i m , T a k e that !"— T h e deceafed inflantly came back into the room, l a i d he was a dead man, and pulled out of his l e f t eye a knife, which bad been ftuck into it by t h e prifoner, which he threw upon the floor. It appeared bent, and bloody. Mr. Scott, the m s l t e r of the houfe, ran up ftairs, and afked how t h e prifoner could be fo wicked as to do fuch an a f t towards a fellow- creature? She anfwered— « ' It ferved him right." The pr. if'oner faid in her defence, that ( lie had been beaten and ill treated by the deceafed, and that at tbe time of giving the wound he had i'truck at h e r ; when Ihe ran into her room, caught up the knife in the dark, not knowing what it was, aud fttmck the deceafed, without any intention to kill bim.

And, as great rjuantities of Raw Sugars had been taken out of the Warehoufes and had paid the duty, which flill lay on hand without a market, he would propofe that the holders of fuch Sugars fhould be at liberty to return them to fhe King's warehoufes for the purpofe. of exportation, and for which ihey fhould be allowed the drawback of tV, e duties they had paid, and thofe. Sugars be permitted to remain until a foreign market could he found for, them.

Bart. Ire w s rather furprsf d to fee i t : as. on the 24th of December l i f t , he had iranfcbnneCted with the commercial profperity of the country, that it would be necetfary for him only to detain tbe Committee for a very fhort time in ftating the heads of the feveral propofitions he was about to offer for their adoption. It wasu nnecefi'ary for him to ufe a n y arguments to ( hew that the Well India Trade was one of the moft extenfive and valuable branches o f the commerce of this Empire, and undoubtedly the merchants and others concerned in that trade now, and for a confiderable time part, had laboured under confiderable difficulties, owing to the great quantity of Weft India produce- lying in hand for the want of a foreign market. It was with a view to remove thofe embarraflnients, that he now propofed this C o m m i t t e e ; and he was convinced tbe Houfe would agree with him, that no means Ihould be neglefted to remedy the difficulty, and promote the defirable objeCt of encouraging the Exportation of all Surplus produce, and procuring for thofe commodities a foreign market, as w e l l as to give to the conl'umption thereof a decided preference both at home and in our colonial poffeffions. The articles to which he more particularly alluded, were Sugars and Rum ; and the mode by which he propofed to effeCt the'purpofe fo much to be defired, was to grant an additional bounty on the export of the former, and in favour of the latter, by a countervailing duty upon the import of all other Spirits, either for home ! cdnfumption, or export : thereby to throw a decided balance in favour of the Rum. The rates of bounty he propofed to allow on the export of Sugars, were 10s. per cwt. upon all double refined Sugars, for which he underftood there was a confiderable demand in our own Colonies, as^ yell as in foreign markets. Alfo upon Raw Bill for equalizing the Trade to the South Seas. T b e draft had been returned on the 15tb of January, with the approbation of the Court of Directors ; and therefore he thought no farther dej l a y could be either given or expe& ed.

Mr. Whitbrtad rofe in order to make his promifed motion relpeCting the Poor Laws. He began by observing, that on a fubjeft o f this magnitude he wi/ hed there had been a fuller attendance, for the propofition was one of the mbf! important that could polliblybe fubmitted to public difcuffion. ( Hear f Hear!) The objeCV in view was no lefs than this, to folve the problem how to reduce the furn of human mifery and vice, how to augment the I'um of htiman happinels and morality. ( Hear ! Hitir !) Mr. Whitbread then took a review of the feveral^ ftatutes which had been enaCled for the relief and regulation of the poor, and tbe opinionsof different authors who have written On the fubjeCh He then o b f e r v e d— When the feudal tfyftem began to relax, the. ilumber of the poor fc^ gan to inc- reafe, and even a j FEB. 22. SUNDAY REPORTER. _ _ _ 6 J applied ? He begged leave to advert to the defcription of the poor of Scotland, in 1698, by Andrew Fletcher. It appeared, that then there Were 110 lets than 200,000 beggars, wandering about from door to door, and though tha number was greatly increafed by the peculiar diftrefies of that time, yet that no lei's thanlOO. OOO of this defcriplion generally exifted, ail enormous number conliderinp the ( late of the o'oannyiat that time. Thefe were addicted to the mod abominable vices. The fathers had incefluous mtercourfe with their own daughters— many of thein remained unbaptized, and when opportunity offered, they had reoourfe to robbery and niorder ! The remedy which Mr. Fleteher propofed, was to give a better education to the poor.'— Then the fyftem of education began in Scotland, and to borrow a quotation once made ufe of by Mr. Burke— — — funul alba nautls Stella r e f u l f i t. Defluit faxis agitatus humor ; Cortcidunt venti fugiuntque nubes. the evil ceafed, and the whole was afcribed'to the etleds of education— to the fyftem of parochial fehools. To- this the Lord Advocate of Scotland, in 1803, when the fubjeft of thefe fchools was before the Houfe, aj'cnted the good morals of the SCoteh. l i e ftated, that from Mancbefter alone more convidls were lent abroad than from tbe whole of Scotland ; and that no more than fix perfons annually upon an average fuffered capital punilhmpnt in that country.-— Thefe fchools indeed ferved as a fort of barometer to afcertain the Hate of the poor in Scotland. The Poor Laws there had lately been more reformed to than ufual. The falaries of the fchoolmafters being only the fame as it was 20- years ago, it happened for fome time that feme Schools were adtually given- up, and to this < jaufe might the evil be properly aleribed. In exa& proportion therefore to the encouragement of education, was the prevalence of good order in fociety. Ha had faid enough, he believed, to convince the Houfe of the propriety of introducing a plan of education into his Bill. This might be done at a moderate expsflce ; but if the thing ( hould be fuccefsful, the expence was 110 conlideration.- HWhatever it might be, it would be repaid with ten thoufand fold in hard noney, and more than that in the improved ftate. of the people in point of morals. and comfort. He who had been a friend to re. ferm, and full was a friend t © it, thought that this would be the bell method to accomplifh his objeft. In the interval between Mr. Pitt's plan and this time, a fyftem of education had been partially fet on foot, which he was bappy to find had received the lloyal patronage. This was fo plain and l'o Amplified, that it might juflly be called a grand difcovery, He alliided to the fyftem of Mr, Lancafter. He thought that man had met with difficulties from prejudiced perfons, yet he was happy to find that it l'ttll retained the lloyal patronage. However oppofed by bigotry, it would finally fucceed. It was not to be expected thkr. fuch a thing fhoujd become univerfal at once; but it could not be ( mothered, and it would one day prevail univerfally. The fecoiid plan which he meant to propof ® for exalting the character of the labourer was that wltich had been nrppofed^ y . jVlr. Pitt, that was,. to throw open, tip law,, of. I'ettiemeiUss altogether, which produced- more jealcmfy and heartburnings^ called'into a& ion more bad pafiiores, and gave occafipn to more litigation than alcnoit any thing e. lfe copne& ed with the Poor Laws. He then went into the hiftory of the A f t of Settlement, by which a perfon having refided llivee years vvithput interruption in one place, was thereby entitled to relief. Mr. Pitt propofcrt five years, and this was the time nu which he had fixed, apd he, would add, that no perfon having been convidled of a crime Ihould have thp benefit of t- his. The overfeer, he thought, ll. onltf have the power of examinius; to what pari 111 any perfou belonged before this period of rtlidence was expired, which would entitle him to relief from the parilh where he dwelt. An appeal Ihould- be allowed to the Quarter Seflions, , aml this to be decided upon withm two. Selii ' tis from the time of the appeal. At prefent 110 noticewas taken of the circumftnn ce of the proper parilh of each till the time when the perfon was ( lying or dead, and when in confequence the left fource of information was loft. Beyond his he would propofe that Quarter Selfions ihowld grant rewards to- lawvurers under confnied ' ci- rcomftances, as a lhmulus to mduliry; ft was well known that many per toils, who, from l a u d a b l e pudej were allramed ' to be indebted early as the r< eign of Richard the Second, fe- • vere ftatutes were enafted againft vagabonds and beggars. The monalteries at that time, however, was a great lefource, but it was not I'ufficient. From this fource f prang the vagrants and the fturdy beggars fpoken of in fubfequent ( iatutes. who wandered about farcing alms, Ikulking about ifolated habitations, and committing every fpecies of violence and robbery. Statutes were palled. But the evil, however, was not cured. After the diflolution of the monafteries, it arofe to a greater height than ever, and the only remedy then underftood was greater cruelty in the enactments. By the ftatute of Edward VI. if a man was found to have been without work for three days, he might be feized as a ( lave by any one who could lay hands on him— he might be branded with a mark of infamy, and compelled to do any work, " however vile" ( thefe were the words of tbe ftatute), and if he ran away from the perfon who fo feized him, before the expiiation of a period of fourteen years, he was guilty o f ' f e l o n y . This ( hewed the ftate of fociety at the time, and the monftrous evils that refulted frpm the want of an enlightened method of providing for the poor. This ftatute was foon repealed, but btheis of great. f? verity were enadled,. and this plan of feverity was not done away until the ftatute of Elizabeth. The ftate of the poor came, to be the fubjeft of felious confideration during the reign of Elizabeth, and the refult was the ftatute of the 43d. With thefe examples before uis, we were to coufider what would be the fituation of this country at the end of twenty years, if ho relief or redrefs were to be given to the poor ? All that fyftem that formed the cement between man and man would be done away, and you would tbfow the needy and the profligate loofe on fociety, and we would have an army of vagrants and ( lurdy beggars wandering about the country colledhingalms by force. Others might ferze upon particular foots, and fay, " if you do not give relief we will affi- rt the rights of nature, and occupy part of the foil here. It is our right to fave ourl'elves from ftarvation if we cati, and if you do not give, us food voluntarily, we will feize it by force." This was a fituation into which he could not rifk plunging the'country. Why then, if it was ti'ot wife or politic to do this, for if it had been wife or politic he would have dared to do it, but if that w ts not the cale, what was to be done ?— Why, if the Poor Laws were not to be abrogated that tlill remained which Mr. Malthus propofed, and that was, " that if it Ihould be thought unadvifable to abolilh the Poor Laws altogether, Means might be found to modify and regulate; them, and to remove many, of the evils with, which they were Attended." That was precifely' the objeft which he. had in view ( IJe, ir ! hear f ) He begged leave to fay, that he had no wild audi enthuliaftic projefls in contemplation, to do away; poverty altogether, and to provide everyone! with a I'ufficierit competency. The filing was in. its nature impoffiblfe, Man- was, bo « u t*> labour ss the fparks fly upwards, and 110 fociety could exift. without dillinftions in point of. rank and wealth. Thofe who maintained the . contrary were either- weak enouglmot to fee the neceffity, though fo obvious, or wicked enough^ for. private purpofes, 10 inoulcate notions' which they kne\ v< could not be reduced jto practice. Every perfon 1 would wilh, no doubt, that the poor could enjoy : the comforts of life. It was thebenevolent wilii of Hehry the JVth of tVancaS, ' a with lb well a?- . cording- with the cl> a| ufter of; that celebrated \ Monarch » ibfct- he- c^ ulld 1 live to fee the trni'e i when every peafritit ill his dominions w'duTd ' b e * able to afford to have a pullet in his po^ evefy j day^ fcr < in,!. i r. All tiiufr'jifn fu'ch a wilh, b; ut the, thing was itiipoffible, and we ought carefully to ayoid Lhp hqltiing out of falfe notion;, w. hioh j God_. and Nature did not permit to be realifed He hud read iii- Co'lliii's1 Account of - NeW South Wales of a notion that prevailed among, the cdnviils, that there was a part of that country lo which they had been traiifported which produced Ihe fruits- of the earth. fpotaneoufty, and t h e del ti fio 11 was to ft long, that many of theftwretches let off in i'eai eh of the obj, ft which ihey had in view, namely, an exemption from that toil which is the lot of man. But they perilhed in the wiideriiefs, and became hey prey ofjwild beads. If, therefore, the notion - A as , to be held forth that plenty was to be ha- d without toil, the poor would be tniferubly nsilh d, and we Ihotild all perilh. teigether. The: object which he had in view was to regti late, to modify, and to add to the provilions made for the poor, and if we ( hould come to a period when thefe laws would become obfolete, a thing of which be did not altogether defpair, there would be the more reafon to rejoice. His objeil % vas to make the poor, if poftible, abfolutely afliamed to accept of relief, and to give them the ftrongeft motives to provide for tbemfelves, and oppoi tunities for that purpofe, fo as to render them valuable members of fociety, inftead of being a burthen to it. His defign was to exalt the mind of the labourer, and to give him greater freedom— to ftimulate him by rewards— to render the burthens more equal— to make parochial relief a matter of degradation, and to difcriminate between. thofe who had been reduced to poverty by crimes, and thofe who had become poor through misfortune. He would propofo two or three regulations with that view. In doing this he felt it neceffary to be cautious, that he might not open a door to new litigations, a thing which was particularly to be guarded againft. On that account he would not alter the denominations or the boundaries of parilhes, nor would he interfere with Courts of Juftice. He would not introduce any thing new, except where it Ihould be called for by all the enlightened perfons who had written on the fubjedl, or with whom he had converted, Nor would he alter any part of the old regulations, except where he found that the alteration had been found to have been good in pradlice fomewhere.— His firft obje£ t was the exaltation of the charafier of the labourer, and with that view the principal point to be attended to was, the education of the poor, ( Hear! Hear!). It had been magnificently faid from the Chair, which he ( Mr. Abbot) occupied, that the doors of this Iloufe were alwatys thrown wide open to Petitions of all forts—[ thefe were the words of Mr. Abbot when fome doubts had beej) expreffed whether the Lancafter Petition, in the cafe of Mr. Cawtliorne, ought to be received.] His objed was to throw the doors of inftruflion wide open for the poor. He begged of the Houfe to confider the difference between man in his rude, ayd in his civilifed ftate. If any thing human could be more degraded than a brute, it was man in his uncivilized ftate, when every bad pallion raged with unreftrained fury. How wide the difference as he approached a period of civilization, and when he attained to that ftate of fociety which exifted in this country. In a civilised ftate he would affirm, however much it might militate againft vulgar prejudices, that the vices were fewer, and the virtues greater and more numerous. He would therefore propofe, that the whole of the population ( hould have the means of acquiring information. Prejudices had exifte( i, ag3intt enlightening the people, but thefe had now, in a great meafure, difappeared. He bagged them to look at an uninformed mob, and obferve how eafily they were led by the cunning , and the difalfected, and then to mark how craft was gxpofed and overturned before unenlightened 1 atfembly. He would alk whether A& iftitJes wjould i have been banilhed from Athens for his having gained the furnaine of " The Juft," if his judges had been enlightened men, inftead of being, like the illiterate fellow who could neitber write rior reatf,: on whbfe card Ariftides had written his own, fiame? He would alk, Whether the Grand Penfioner De Witt would have been torn to pieces by an enlightened affembly ?— or whether, if the ' Jjeople had been enlightened, the fcenes which had been the fcourge and difgrace of this metropolis in 1780 ( Lord Geo. Gordon's riots) could , ' have taken place f But he would refer to the !| condition oTHhe pbor in Scotland, where thfe Poor Laws had in fome meafure become obfolete, alid what was this circuroftance owing to; but to the ellefts of l'uperfor education. A mifconception exilled - with refpeft to Scotland. The faft was, that a fyftem of relief of the fame nature with. that of the Englilh Poor La* vs exifted there, but was . never reforted to, except in cafes of extreme necefply. Decilions of the Court of Sellion exifte'd pompelling relief, but this refource was. JVl. rloni . reforted to. He had received much alii ( lance on this fubjett from a geptjeman of diitinguilhed talents, who. had praftifed at the bar in Scotland, and was now a Member of the Houle ( Mr. Horuer perhaps). If you found that the poor in that country had onse been in a ( ituation 110 le( s dreadful than the poor of England had been in the earlier periods of our hiftory, but that afterwards their condition hail been fo much altered for the'better, was it tinrealonable to expect that the fame effects woulbe p r o d u c e d in England, if the fame meatis:\ veie - S U N D A Y R E P O R T E R . F E B . 2 2. m to parochial relief, were forced to it by neoefl'ttv, and having had recourfe to it once, had foil that pride and lhame. He adverted to thrf beneficial effects ot the Benefit Societies, and the rewards granted by Agricultural Societies to perfons in indigent ci'rcumftances, who had brought up large families without parochial relief and, praifed the late Duke of Bedforid'for his atftvtj benevolence in fuch cafes. He approved of theft? rewards, although he did not think there would have been many claimants, but he had been agreeably furprifed to find the claimants numerous. The effects were, that many perfous who would have been obliged to liave recourfe to parochial relief, now fcorned it. He fhould therefore propofe, thatjuftices ( ho uld have the power of granting rewards of this nature according to tbe number of children, and that the reward fhould only be given. Beyond tliat he would propofe, that fuch perfons fhould have fome; badge of diftiriCtion to point out that they had been confidered as meritorious perfons. This would be a cheap ftimulus to lnduftry, and a powerful one, as man is fond of diltindtion. Another thing which he would propofe, was to give fecurity to the property whicn the poor Ihould accumulate. He could not reconcile himfelf to the fyftem of forcing them to lay up any other money. He thought it ought to be left to their own choice, and that there fhould be as little interference with them as pofiible. They themfelves were generally the wifeft managers of their property. But it often happened that they loft the money which they bad faved, by lending i t on improper fecurity. He would propofe, therefore, a method by which this evil might be remedied. He thought the notion of county banks ftarted by Mr. Malthus, could not be reduced to practice; what he would propofe there-, fore was, that certain commillioners fhould be appointed in London to manage a fund which fhould be called the Poors' Fund. That every poor man ( hould have the privilege of fubfcribing t o this fund, the lowelt fubfcription being 20 Hiillings in the year, and the higheft 51. that the • whole fum belonging to aiiy individual fho'uld not be allowed to exceed 9001. that the intereft when it amounted to ten ( hillings, fliould be regularly tranfmitted— and there Ihould be no duties paid on ( lamps, and that the letters on this fubjeCt ( hould be free of portage. He would Wfo propofe, that the money might be verted in infurances on contingencies, care being taken to calculate fo as to prevent ultimate lofs. Thefe were the regulations which he would propefe for exalting the character of the labourer. They would do much, but a good deal remained ftill to be done. ' He concluded with moving-— " That leave be given to bring in a Bill for promoting the encouiagement of induftry in the labouring elafs of the community, and for the more effeftual relief and regulation of the Criminal and neceflitous poor." After a converfation between Mr. Rofe, Mr. Calvert, Mr. Sturges Bourne, Mr. Ellifon, ' Lord Howick, Sir J. Newport, and Mr. Bragge Bathurft, in the courfe of which Air. Whitbread received many compliments on the talents and diligence he had evinced, and the propriety of dividing his Bill into two or more Bills was fuggeffed, the motion was agreed to. On the motion of Lord H. Petty, the Houfe proceeded to re- confider the report of the Finance Refolutions. Sir James Pultney dated feveral objections to Lord Henry Petty's plan, and particularly dwelt on the evils which would arife from pledging the War Taxes. Mr. Henry Thornton entered into an able analyfis of the plan held out by Lord CafUereagh, which he contended was erroneous and defective. Mr. Bankes took a comprehenfive view of the whole fubjedt before the Iloufe, and tbe various matters which were connected with it ; he faw ' Hiach to applaud in the prefent fyltem of Finance, and even that which he lamented in it was nothing but the effeCt ofneceflity, and therefore to be jtiflified. Mr. Rofe renewed all his former objections to this plan ; he thought it abfolute infanity to build on the produce of War Taxes being the ame in Peace as in War. Mr. Corry anfwered the obfervations of Mr. Rofe. Mr. Perceval renewed bis former objedtions to this plan. Lord Henry Petty- dt- teuded ( be; whole of this • plan of Finance - with great ab'flitV, a'nd with' uli- t copuiiou knisiaWon ; but « ifde't; ni'-' his i'pertlh we" have, not fpacfe; it was a complete aiVf'wer to all the objections which had been ftated againft the plan. Lord CaJlJereagh then rofe, and entered at ;- great length i t to his own I inaucifcifSvtteni ; rie-. / pelting aill his former arguments; and cd- n tending that hisw* s tbe belt poffible fehefne of Finance. After a few obfervit. ons from Mr. V'anfittart, Mr. Hulkiffbn, and Mr. Canning, the' queft'ion was loudly called for; and the Refolutions were then read a fecond time without a ditfifioh. Adjourned at Half paft'TUo O'ClOck in the Morning. FRIDAY. SIR HOME POrilAM. Mr. Th'. mas G- renviUc informed the Houfe that the Lords of the Admiralty had ifftie'd a warrant againft Sir Home Popham, for1 the p'tirpofe of his beiiig tried* by 4 Court Martial ; & rid it his Majefly's defire that a copy of- the fame fhould be laid before, the Houfe; which the Right Honourable Member prefented accordingly. 1 he C l e r k of the ITdu- fe read tbe copv'of the: warrant. 11 ftated the oircumftan'tie of1 Sir Honie; Popham having failed- from' ffiN?
