S i n , I have much fatiifaCUoii in congratulating ruy Lords Conimirtioners of the Admiralty on the capture of the lfland of Curacoa, on New dear's Day in the morning, by the foiXr frigates named in tlie ma: gin*, under thb orders of Capt. Hrifbane, of the Arethufa ; a copy of whnfe letter I t n c l o f e for their Lordfhijis information.— Whill't 1 contemplate the immenfe firt ngth of the liarboiir of AmUerdam, and the fuperior foice contained in its different batteries, oppofed to the entrance of the frigates, 1 know not how fufficiently to admire the decifion of Capt. Hrifhane in attempting the harbour, and the determined bravery and conduct dilplayed by himfelf, ihe other three Captains, and all the Olhcers and men under his command ; and it is another ftrong inflam e of the cool and determined bravery of ISrililh feamen. Captain Brifbane being from his fitiia'iou obliged to a< M as Governor, 1 have, as aN acknowledgment and higti upprobation of his conduct, continued him in that fituation tiil his M a j e l i y ' s pleafure fhall be known ; and requKlt, in iht; l'trongcft manner, that their Lordlhips will lie pleafVd to recomniend him f. » r that appointment.

New Y e a r with what I humbly flatter myfelf will be deemed an enterprise of confiderable confequence to my country. I proceeded in tiie execution of j our orders the 2,9th of November with every poliible avidit y ; but the adverfe wind and current prevented nie from reaching this ifland before the 1ft inff. In my way up I met Captain liolton, of the Fifgard, going to Jamaica ; I took him under my orders, according to your direftions, and proceeded with the ftjuadrOti off this port, having previoufly refolved 011 that fvftera of attack which Brilifh feamen are fo capable of executing. My arrangements having been previouUy made known to the refpechve Captains, I wat fatisfied nothing further remained lor mn than to put it in execution. My line of battle confilied of the Areiliufa, Latotia, Anion, and I'ifgard ; and very foon after the break of day, I made al!; poffible fail with the . flips in clofe order of - battle, palling the whole extensive line of fe:>, batteries, and anchored the fquadron in a lii e far furpaffiug my expectations. Being ftill delirous of having the efftifions of human blood fpared, I wrote the inclofed ( No. I.) 011 the capftan of his M a j e f i y ' s fliip Arethufa during the adtion, which was not regarded, as they did their ut 1110ft to ueftroy us. Words cannot exprefs the" ability of the fquadron. The harbour was defended by regular fortifications of two tire of guns ; . I'' ort Amlterdam alone confifiing of fixtylix pieces of cannon ; the entrance only fittv yards wide, athwart which was the Dutch frigate, Hatflar, of 30 guns, and Surinam. < if ' 2^, with two large fchooners of w a r , o n e commanded by a Dutch Commander; a c h a t n o f forts was 011 Mifelburg comtnaiidinp Height ; and that almtift impregnable f b r u e j s Fort Republique, within the difiance ol grape- Oiot. infifaiiing the whole harbour. At a quarter pat'l fix o'clock we entered the p o r t ; a feve. re aud deliructive CJIIIIUnatle en lilt d ; the frigate, floop, ami WKIIHUIS Were carried by bo* rdrng ; the lowi r ferts, the citadel, and town of Ainlitrclam, by lloim ; all of which, by fevvn o'clock, were in our ] nd-' feflion. For humanity fake 1 granted the * nu e x f d capitulation ; and at ten o'clock, the British flag was hoifted- on- Fort Republique ; the whole ifia « d is in our quiet poflt ttion. T l j e ftrengtb, commerce, and value, 1 uuderflaud, is immenfe. It i » now become a plealiug part of my duty, although iwipoflible, t « < d o j u fr lice to the merits, gallantry, aad determination of Captains Wood, Lydiard, and Bolton, who fo nobly hiadjjd their refpedlivc ( hip's ciuupanies to the fiorm ; and the fame gallantry and determination are due to the officers, h amen, and marines for following* up" I'o glorir example.

There never was ren'ieinbt- red fo great a crowd affe'nibled 011 a finiilar occnlion; every avenue leading to the . Ohi Bailey was blocked up at an* ear! y lirjtjr. Juft vfter the falling of the platform, the p. refttire of . the crowd' became, fo great, that great numbers fainted, and falling down, were trampled To death; Tire particulars of this melancholy event will be found in the following evidence taken before the Coroner's Inqueft at- St. Bartholomew's Hofpital. ' fuefrlay evening, the molt painful talk that ever'perhaps devolved upon any Ger. tlfjman ii> his fituatJOn, was performed t> y ' I'honias Shelton, EI'q. Coroner f i r the Cily of- Lond. yi, the Borough of Sonthwark, and its" vicinity. This afflifting duly was performed al the Hril'pital of St. Bartholomew. The inveliigation continued fron* Itx o'clock in the evening until < leven at night. The Jury was fworn in the Yefiry room of St. Sepulchre's parilh. They then took a view of two youths that lay dead in the church ; after which they viewed, the. body that lay at the White Swan, Snow- hill. The Coroner and Jury then procef tied to the Hofpital, where levtral witnefies were examined. The detail would take up too much ( pace, and would be tdo tedious'Ifgjsls nature to be given at length in a newfpaper. Notwithftanding the nttiioli endeavour « f thg Goroner to confine the WitneftVsas much as p op fible to a mere recital of what was r. ecefliary for the information of tise Jury, tbofe who were examined conid not, 011 fuch a melaticboly occafion as this, refrain from going into fome extraneousm a t t e r ; in coufeqitence of which no more than 12 perfons could be kJfntified. The following i » an outline of the evidence which was given to the Coroner and Jury r— Thettphihii Salmon, of Ihe King of Denmark public hoafe, in the Old Bailey, endeavoured ti> convey an idea of the vaft croud that were aflembled in the Old Bailey, and choaker) up every avenue leading to it, 011 Monday morning. At ten minutes after eight, when Haggerty aicended the f'caffold, the witnefe heard a general cry of " Hats off." The hats were taken off, and probably it might have been owing to ibis that the crowd immediately fell back: the witness obferved a general motion in the croud immediately, and he thought il might probably have been occafioned by the hats taking up more fpace in the hands lhanon the heads of the people. Every face was then turned towards the fcaffold. A great fcreaming was heard at lhat- inftaut ; as the witiiefs looked oul of a window on the firll floor* and turned towards St. Sepulchre's Church, he law owe or two perfons fall down flat on the ground, about a yard from the foot- pavement, oppofiie Little Green- arbour- court. Such others as flood near them in front, finding that there was fome tiling behind that was likely to throw them down, endeavoured to turn round and face it. Some of them did turn round aifd ftrove to make a Itansl againft the cunrent of the people which prefl'ed tipon them ; they were, however', driven with fuch force by thofe who were then behind them ( that is between them and the fca. tfold, as they had turned their backs towards il), that, as the only means of felf- pr. efervation which they could poftiblv have recourl'e to, they fli pped over thole that lay down; where they had time to do it, as '. hey were rapidly preffed forward, they leaned iheir bands upon the flioulders of fome' that flood near them, and by that means enabled theml'elves to ftep over the unfortunate perfons without touching them ; but there was ftieh a contiant and rapid i'tieceflion of people driven into the \ acancy in ihe body of the crowd, that many were compelled to tread on thofe that Were down, in order to prevent theml'elves from falling as they were hurried on. The ft reams iivcreal'ed to luch a degree that the wUriels obli rved to fume flrangers that flood at the window with him, that there was a lad piece of bulinefs ung forward. He then went down flairs in a I right ; the front door was Unit, and he knew nothing of what palled from that time until after the crowd had nearly difperfed, and the. door was opened, when he witnefled the thftreiling fcene that prefented i t f e l f ; upon his looking into ihe ( heet a wart was e m p l o y e d in carrying away tlie dead MARCH » , S U N f t A V R & l ' o t t t i R. 6- 7 mid feveral that were maimed were cojjyey. ed . on.

The cries were fo numerous, and the. clanioif amougft the people was fo great, that people who were, fi. ve yards off the foot: where tlft; people lay could only now and then be nble to diftinguilh the found of the words " Murder, murder I Oh .

He defcribed the ftate of the crowd in nearly the fame manner as the other wUnefl'ts had done, lie was thrown dowo upon fome people, and feme others were 011 top of him.— After fullering a great deal of pain by the weight upon his body, and the confined polition in which he'was kept, he got tip and was brought into a lhop, where he law two dead bodies, and in the inner pari of the ( hop a man in a fit. That. ll'urcejhr, a pye- man, who flood about the middle ol the ftreet at a Ihort dillance from the rail, which was fixed acrofs from the Ealt to the Weft Side of the Old Bailey, at the end next Sf. SepulcliieVCburch, de poled that the rail broke down with the weight of the people. The force of the people tumbling off the rail knocked him down 011 the. top of his balket .1 d ov< r it. Several others fell dow , upon him and he was nearly Iqueezed to dea n ; however, was, alter fome time, brought out of the crowd alive, and is now a patient 111 St. Bartholomew's. James Divine, weaver, alfo ,1 patient in the' Hofpital,' give a moft melancholy pivhirr of wh t palled on Monday morning, lie had l « en down amongft the ruins of mortality for about'four nt live minutes— he found his cafe to be f o d I'p. • raie that lie ltood up oil the bodies— he recollect cr that he had one foot placed upon a uuiiiV lace and the oilier upon fome one's throat ; ihe pile, of bodies was at leaft as high as a table ; and he jumped up from the heap on the heads and Ihuei-' ders of ihofe that flood near him, and their crawled along 011 his knees and hands on the tops of ihe people's heads till he got to a window, wherehe was taken in, after foine Ihort time was f> far recovered as to be able to bear being' carried - off to the Hofpitah . Thos- Oliver, liobt. Hewitt, and !!'*>.- Daiis,' gav" nearly a fimilar delcpription. ' i'he evidence br ing clofed, the Coroner obferved, that he had not the fmalleft doubt that the J nry were long fince ft lis lied as to what was the immediate caufe Of the people's death, upon whofe cafe they had affenibled; namely, that they, died either by comprt llion, being trampled upon, or by fuffocation. lie" had continued his refearch, however, with a view lo find out, if poffible, what it was that oecalioned the firfi fallitig down amwig the people, ' l'hey mult fee that this was IU a degree connected with fome local circumtiance; as the accidents were confine^ nearly t o o n e f p o t . He mult, therefore,''' conclude that, as the cirts had flopped, up the " greater part of the entrance at the fouth'end of ihe Old Bailey, the current of people that flowed in towards the platform was like a. great body of water that is propelled by a powerful force behind into a very narrow paffage before i t ; wheiv it has parted through and endeavoured to expand itfelf, it dallies round with the greater fury on every fide. No doubt, however, there were many iuftauces of individual weaknef*, or other circumllances peculiar to the cafe ot every individual that hadfuffered. ' I hefe poiiKs, however, it was impoffible for them to afcm'ain ; . a rd it relied with thena to determitte oh foro « - general verdi& that would be furticiently compffhtnfive fo embrace every cafe that was thtn before them. After this the Jury deliberated f o r a cotS/ iderable length of lime ; and theu agreed upon a verdirt, of which the following is the fubllance,:—" That 011 Monday morning lad the Several perfons deceafed had ali'elnblecl in the Old Bailey, at the North- well end, near the Weft fide thereof, aiitl oppofite Great Green Arbour court. That many carts and carriages were placed acrofs that part of the Old Bailey by fome perfon or perfoas unknown, which coafiderably narrowed that entrance to the faid ftreet or place. That a vaft number of people had alfo colleiled there for the purpofe of feeing the execution of criminals which was to take place that morning. That the pall'age being narrowed in manner aforefaid, caufed a confiderable degree of coitfufioa among thofe who were in the crowd, and preffing to get forward to fee the execution ; in confequence of which feveral perfons were comprefftd, trampled upon, and fuffocated. That the decrafed perfons were among the aunjber of thole, who, thus fullering, died through comprcllioa, lieing trampled upon, and fuffocation." 1 ' I'he Court broke up at Half after Twelve o'Clock. His Majefty, we utuierl'taiid, means to confer the honour of Knighthood on Captain Hrilbane, who fo gallantly conduced himfelf at the taking of Guracoa.

LONDON. T H E French Government in Hamburgh have publiihed an account of the aftion at Mobrjngen. We conclude it to be theirs, as it is the firft a r t i c l e ' i n the Currefpondenten of the 14th i n f t . ; and it is to be prefumed that nothing appears in that Paper, particularly where the honour qt character of the French army is implicated, without their previous fanftion. If the two taft French Bulletins, or the Prullian official report inferted in a fubfequent Page, could make the refult of the battle of the 25th ult. in the leaft degree queftionable, it mutt be put beyond all doubt by an article, which, though dated f r om Loebau,' was moft probably fabricated at Hamburgh. It clearly appears from it, that the Ruffians obtained extenfive and decided advantages on that day, in confequence of which the fafety of the whole French line was fo much endangered, that Bonaparte found it necefl'ary to lake the field i. imfelf. The Emperor Alexander, it is reported, has mtde a pen mptory demand from the Emperor of A u f t i i a , of an auxiliary force of 40,000 men. 1' iiva a accounts from the Continent inform us, that an Order, figned by Bonaparte at Warfaw, has been received by Bourienne, at llani- | ) surgh, direfling the immediate difpoful of the i confil'cAit d Englilh property at that place, fom'e of which is to be fent to France, fome to the army in Poland, and the remainder to be fold upon tin; fpot.. I T appears to be the general e x p e d i t i o n on the Continent, that Auftria will ultimately dec l a r e againft France. Nbtwithftanding all the means of conciliation employed, and induce, incnts h t ld out by the French, the whole of the territory of the Eleitor of Hert'e continues in a ft a t e of increafrng revolt. The ; French Government employs every means, ( hurt of open force, to fuppii Is this turbulent difpofition, but with out etleft. Tlie infurgents have acquired courage from impunity; and a defeat on the Viftula would route them to a man, and make tin in bre. ik their chains upon the heads of their opprtflori. T h e Hellians, will never forgive or forget the infults and dilhouour which Bonaparte hat heaped upon them. Every man in that country has felt the di( grace which has b e t n inflicted on the Heflian army ; and woe to the enemy fhould auy of their routed columns be under the necefiity of parting through it 1 The King of Pruffia is exerting every n e r v e .— T h e Priilces of the Blood are railing voluntee1" regiments in Poland and Silefia. The loyalty of the Prudian and Silefian peafantry is faid to have exceeded the moft faiiguine expectation; and not to be in any degree inferior to that which, iu a former war, was exhibited by the T y r o l e fe towards the I l o u f e of Auftria. Private letters ftate, that the RuiTian General Kaminfkoy's difeafe was a fit of infauity, whieh broke out in the field of battle fuddenly, and iti its confequences proved difaftrous to the Ruffian army. It is reported, that he entered the field ftripped to his fhirt, over which he had hung his ribbons, ftars, & c . This was confidered merely as an imitation of JSuwarrow. But he afterwards committed a variety uf excefl'es, which threw the army into confufioti. Letters received at Plymouth, dated in December laft, from our Qeet in the Dardanelles, ftate the following p a r t i c u l a r s : — T h e Canopus, 84, Rear- Admiral L o u i s ; the Endymion, 44, and another frigate, are ftafioned dire& ly oppofite the Seraglio. The Thunderer, 7- V, and Standard, of ( i4, are anchored to command the palVage of tbe Dardanelles. A few days before thefe tatters came away, a ltuflian frigate from the Mediterranean parted '. fee Dardanelles without 1110- leflation from t h e T u r k i f h batteries; but Sebaltiani made a violent renvoi)(" trance at thrt frigate palling the Dardanelles, but could get no redrefs, as our Envoy, Mr. Arbuthnot, gave in a reprefentation of the buiinefs, and placed it iti its proper point of view, to the f j t i s f a c i i on of the Turkifli Government.

Of the conditions of the Treaty we are not informed ; but the circjimftance of a Treaty having been concluded, will renibve all fiifcicj'on from the minds o f tliofe who thought that Pruflia m i g h t ' b e induced to enter into a Negotiation for a feparate Peace.—• P. riiffia cannot negotiate but in concert with her A l l i e s . It appears that the l'. uiperor of Ruflia has required from Auftria a reiuforceinent of 40,000 n'leh ; and alfo, that the Emperor Francis had demanded from the French the immediate reltitiition of the important fortrefs o f Brannau. In either cafe, the conduct of Auftria cannot long remain undecided. If Bonaparte furrenders Brannau, it will be attributed to fear, and to the v e i y critical fituation in which ( he appears to be placed. This is an enibarratfment from which he can . only be delivered by a vittory over the Ruffians.

By attempting to live on the / nine fare with the common foldiers. ou the banks o f the Viliula, he experienced an indigeltiop, and was ablblutely in a date of infenfibility for 2 4 hours.

Although it is probable that the Trench will be fouted, this will not fatisfy the E m p e r o r ; the enemy mud be driven beyond his own frontier; this is the only means of faving Germany. The Emperor, therefore, hopes, that t h e Germans, under thele circiimdauCes, which < ttill decide their fate for ever, will not lend any afliftance to the enemy's troops ; but, by a gener a l xefiftance, render it impoilible for them to prol o n g their flay, and alfo harafs them in their ret r e a t .

His difpatch is dated ' Marienwerder, Jan. 27 : — " On the 24th and J j t l i of January, two anions took place at Mohringen, in which the divilions of Ney and Bernadotle were aliiiod entirely - der to bring up tioops agdnl't our right- wing; but Marlhal Beriiadotte perceived his dtligti, and immediately formed in order of bailie, while he ordered a battalieni of the ^ th light infantry to advance againft the village of Pfarrer* t'eldfclien, which was defended by federal battalions of JtuOians, nnd lix pieces of cannon. This battalion advanced with all the courage and impetuoflty that didinguilh the French fwldieis; iaikl notwitlidanding the'naurdeious fire, and the warmth of the ae'lion in which the Eagle of this battalion was taken and retaken, the battalion fucceeded in defeating the enemy, and gaming polTeirion of tlie village. " " The Ruffians, who defended themfelves va- . liantly, again attacked the village with three battalions; but the 8th regiment coming to the affiftance of the French battalion, they were driven back. " Being compelled to retreat, they formed behind the village, while their right and h it extended towards ihe woods and frozen lak° s ; they occupied both fides of the road between M'c/ Mrfrigen and Liepdadt. " Our line of infantry, confiding of the 8th, 27'. b, and- lyth regiments, immediately advahw- d ugainft the enemy's front, upon the heights, whic h ' was provided with a formidable artillery. A very heavy fire of fmail arms took place. ' General Dupoiit, in the meanwhile, had orders to move from Neuhoff to Wiefe and Georgenthnl, f o r the purpofe of turning the right wing o f the Ruffians. At the fame time the troops arrived that were to adl againtl the enemy's front. A battalion. of the 32d was the firlt that advanced. The enemy were driven back, and very roughly handled, and a very great carnage took place among them ; they were purfued more than two leagues, till flight put an end to the affair. " A battalion of the 8th, which w a s f e l e f l ed j o drive the Ruffians out of Mplrringen, advanced with fixed bayonets, . and overthrew all that oppofed them. The Sth chatfeurs'followed the reniainder, killed a » reat many, and made a number of prifouers, and, among the. reft, the Colonel who commanded t h e expedi tion. " This affair is fo much the more glorious for the ( ird corps, becaul'e the troops began their march of ] 6' leagues at midnight, to arrive at the field of battle, where the Marlhal Princo of l'onte C o r v o had fcarci- ly 8000 men, againti 14,000 of the enemy's frelli troops. The enemy's - lols is conftderabfe, exceeding 2000 men; " ours is reckoned " at f or 800 killed and wouiidccR , " The French infantry have this day givea fredi proofs of their courage and uncommon iatrepidity. Notwithftanding the f d i g u e of a and tirefome inarch, they alcended the heights where the enemy was polled, and who d e f e n d ed hinvlelf with great ob'Itinacy. Dreadful defiles, and K i o r l S pieces of cannon, could not reftrain them for a moment. The cavalry diftinguilhed itl'elf by the fine charges it repeatedly made upon a. fiiperior numbtr, and thus claim a part of th j glory. In fine— Generals, Officers, Privates, all did their . duty : they all vied with each other in courage and devotion. " We have made 400 prifoners, and tiik-' i two pieces - of camion. The prifoiiers allures u , that Genral Aurepy and Prince Dolgorucki re wounded. " The refu'k of this- glorious day has been'ihe checking of l- he enemy in his rapid marli, and • aflonifhing him by a difptay of valour alinolt unexampled ; befides preventing the execution of his proju'f, which wits fo fu'rprife the Grand Army, and compel it to repafs the Vilhila, " The Prince of Ponte Corvo remained upon the field of battle till two o'clock next day, and made many sxc'ellent but flow movements to cover the left flank of the ' Grand Army, while he gained time' to carry off the w o u n d e d . —— l i e retreated but three leagues on the firlt. day after the affair ; he remained 24 hours at LTebemull, and arrived at l. obau on the 27th, when h « took a polition behind the place, there to wait for the enemy, who did not make his appearance.

Lord IFarxckk then rofe to offer to th? ir Lordfliips' conlideratipn fome Proportion 011 the ft/ bj , ct of Finance. He regre. tted, that the Lifk had not fallen upon I'orrte one m. » re accti lionise! to Parliamentary fpeakiiig ; nevertheless feeling it to be his duty, be would . not ( brink from i t .— " J'tiat eyery mode hitherto in ufe for railing a revenue was unequal, and, in many refpeds, inequitable, was a propofition. which could, not . be denied; but St had hitherto baffled the ingenuity of Financiers to riifcuver a mode which ( hould be at once juft in its principle and fimple in its application. Of fact) a principle, however, alter much meditation, he hud the good fortune to be the difcoverer-, and if at f. ll Unit's it was a matter highly defirabte to attain, it was more peculiarly fo at this crilis, when ordinary modes of taxation had been carried to their uttnoft pofifible extent, and when it was of tbe higheft importance that we ( hould place our revenue on a footing hiked to tbe very protracted warfare which, we lhould have to futiain— for he held it to be beyond all queftion, that we could not make peace while France pcrfilied in her prefent projects of aggrandizement. The noble and patriotic fpirit wnich animated all ranks ot the community Ihould be an inducement to retort to a fyftem of taxation, which would relieve the poorer daffes from tiiofe burdens, which, though borne in ' filence, muft yet be fe. verely felt. His Lordlhip then proceeded to ar « ue that a tax upon property, muft, o f necefftty, be unequal ; becaufe the common notion of property was fallacious. That term he conceived to be truly applicable only to productive labour ; what was ufually denominated property was but theJrgn of property, and he regarded' exflc/ tdititre as the only genuine criterion of taxable ability. This was the principle of the calculations whirl) he had made, and in proof of which he could cover the table with figures. Here his Lordfiiip produced a Paper, which he read as part ofTus fpeech, containing a variety of Tables relative lo the aggregate expenditure of the different clatles of the community, commencing, with thofe who Ipend oni. y Sixpence per day, and finilhing with tiiofe who Ipend one thoul'and a year and upwards. The refult was, that the genera! taxable expenditure might be tinted at 1 3( k>, 000,0001. & c. and that at the moderate ( ax of half [ his i. ordlhip inuli have meant &/ « •] per cent. a' turn might be raifed, bearing tqually on all elates, of about 13,000,0001. a year. By increasing, the tax in a fmall degree 011 the larger clafl'es of expenditure* the poorer orders of the community might be entirely exempted, while tlie revenue would be incredibly benefited. Thus, if he deduCled for fuch exmiptio. ns,..' i( i' 0iG00-, 00Wl. of expenditure, there would remain a taxable fund, which, on the principle of the prel'ent Income T a x , would ) it- ld a revenue of 200,000* 0001. a year. Ills Lordfhip concluded with propoling to refer his calculations, as contained ii) the paper it) his. hand, to the conlideraUoiijOf a Cuu11nit. ee. Lord Grenvil/ e obferved, that the forms of their Lor iihip's proceedings did not allow of the motion j u l i made, as the papers referred to were H - S U N D A Y R E P O R T E R . 7 1 t not regularly on the table. His Lordfhip briefly E touched on the vario- us modes of taxation' pro- ; pofed by financial writers, fhewing that none of " theiii taken, per fe, operated equally, and that tbe mode adopted in this country being a combi nation of all, approximated more nearly to practical equality, than any fyltem of revenue which had ever been devifed. After fome converfation, in which Lords Morton, Somerville, and Warwick, took a part, it was agreed, that, with the view of avoiding an informal entry in the Journals, the queftion fliould b e — " That a CommiUee be appointed to conlider of improving the mode of railing the revenue.'" The motion fo worried was put and negatived. Adjourned to Monday. HOUSE OF C O M M O N S , Monday, Feb. 23. S L A V S T R A D E A B O L I T I O N. Lord Ilonick then moved the Order of the Day for the debate on the Slave Trade Abolition Bill being refumed, The Order was read, and the queftion was, that " this Bill be comrmtetl." Lord I Iozeic k lofe, and atldreffed the Houfe in a long and able fpeeel), into which we do not intend to enter, the fubjeCt having fo repeat edly, and fo very recently, undergone the molt ample drfcuflion in the Upper Houfe. lie concluded by moving, That the Speaker do now leave the Chair. Gen. Gqfcoyne re- ftated all the arguments that have been to frequently adduced in favour. of the Slave Trade, denied that any I'uch mortality as that afferted, exified in the ( hips employed in that traffic, and complained of the injuftice with which the fiieuds. of the Abolition refufed to hear evidence at the bar of the Houl'e. The ftake was tremendous. We were ri( ki » g the lofs of the Colonies, and the lofs of the Colonies would be the downfall of the Britilh Empire. Mr. Faickts in a very eloquent Ipeech, argued in favour of the abolition. The SolicitorGenerul fpoke much at length in favour of the Abolition, and concluded with an eloquent reprefentation of the gratitude which the vote of this night would call forth from posterity ; and of the bappmel's which many of tlie younger Members, who were pretext, would have in beholding what they had anticipated with all the generous ardour of youth, exprefled by fome of. them in a coi refpondiug glow of language, the benign effects of this meafure on the Negroes, on the whole property of the Colonies, and the prosperity of the Empire at large. Mr. Alderman llibbert ( poke agaiul't the mo tipn, and entered into fome arguments in favour of the trade which the Bill went to abolilh. Mr. IV ilbcrforce replied to the laft Speaker, and ( poke with much feeling againft the traffic. He complimented the 1 Ioul'e on the number of young men who had fpoken againft the continuance of the trade ; and who, he hoped, would " live to fee tiiofe benefits realized, which were now fo reafonably predicted from the meafure before the Houl'e. Mr. Manning explained, and'finally concurred in the mealure ; expretfing, however, a hope, that due com pen ( alio 11 would be made to thofe whofe interefts mighty fuller by the Abolition of the Trade. Lord Peru/ fpoke in favour of the Abolition. The Houfe then d i v i d e d— For the Motion 28B Againft it 16'— Majority 267 The Houl'e then went, vm forma, into a Committee 011 the Bill.

The Noble Lqrd ( iated, that the. Petitioner complained of a breach of the ! ( landing, order of that Hyufe which regarded witnefl'es. Thi. s order was read. It declares all : who may be. concerned, in direflly or indireCtly tainuering, with any witnefTes who may be fummoned to appear before that lloufe or any of its Cominittees,. or in prewehting any witneftes from appearing, iSrc. guilty of a high crime and m. fdenieanour, and that ( he Houfe will proceed wiLh the utmoft feyerity againft perfons Co offending. f. ord FuUcftone then pref- nted the Petition, which was read by the Clerk at the, Table. On the motion of Lord Folkjione, the Petition, was ordered to lie on table. Mr. Sheridan willed' to know whether the Noble Lord, meant to forward anv . proceeding on the Petition ; as unlets he did fo, he Itiould not open his mouth upon the I'ubjeCt. Lord Fulkjlone^ laid, he ihould bring forward a motion on the Petition to7morro\ v. l. ord Upxiick obl'erved, it was moft efFential that no time,( hould be loft in proceeding, to the confideration, as it involved a queftion of mach importance to the privileges of the Ilo. ufe., It was really a very grave matter. Lord Fidjijiunc trufted it would be proved a very grave matter indeed ; and the more important the matter was, the more prudence at> 4 caution ought to be obferved on his part, in. order that the Petitioner's objeCt might not be defeated. His motion to- morrow Jhould be for the Petitioner being heard by Counl't- I. Mr. Sheridan . ftated, that the Noble Lord. in fubmitting the Petition had done no more than his du( y. With' regard- to his having tampered with Mr. Pauil's witnefiTes, if he did pot reply, it was becaufe he treated, the calumnious infiiiy. ation with the fcqrn and contempt it merited ; otherwife he might fpeak of it with a degree of intemperance which might ill become him. Ha was accufed of fuboniatton of perjury, every OIMJ who knew him m^ ft know, that eveiy word in the Petition which lb charged ljim, was a grofs falfehood. Lord Ilmic/ c was proceeding-, whea be was called to order by Lord Folklione iiating Uias there was no queftion before the lloufe; General converfation then enfued, which terminated in Lord Folki'tone co. nienting to delay his motion till Monday. C A it s A T r c. Sir T. Titrton then rofe, pu/ fuant to his notice, to move for reprinting the papers prefented in 1802- 3, relative to the Carnatic. Thefe. paper's had been moved for by a Right Honourable Gentleman ( Mr. Sheridan), on the news arriving of the death of Quid tit ul Omrah, the Nabob of the Carnatic. A remote heir of that Prince had been nominally elevated to the mufnud ( the throne), in preference to the eldeft Ton of the late Nabob, a youth of great accomplifhmeuts, though only feve- nteen years of age. The revenues of the Carnatic Wad been, feized by the Governor- General, Lord Clive, tiow Earl l'owis ; and a f i - milar litie of conduct , had been followed by his luCcefTor, Lord1 Wellefley. It was conceiVSd that the Boarcfof Controul and the Comi> bnv lia given orders to this effect ; and it was for th pofe of afcertaining thatlaCt, that hfe'wffhe0 papers to be reprinted.

Anjiruthcr was at a 1 erf's to difcover the ohjeCt of the Hon. Baronet in the motion, unit Is ) ve meant to furnilh the young Members with light readings during the Eafler Recefs. From the fpeech of the Honourable Baronet, be could not divine whom he mean to charge or accufe. MI . Grant vindicated the Court of DireCtors from any imputation of their being aocell'ary to the leisure of the Carnatic territory, ' lhey had never been confulted on the fubj>- CL Rtr. J*. Thornton made a lew obfervations in fupport of tlie motion. Mr. S, Stanhope ofijcfled to fuch calls on the Hon. Baronet, as the papers were not before the Houfe, and therefore it was impoflible for him to fpe. cify the courfehe intended to purfue. He law little chance under the Government of India, as it now flood, of an enquiry fticceeding. For fixteen years he had feen the fblemn farce gone through of appointing the Ealt India Court ot Judicature without any one caufe having ever come before that tribunal. The Eafi India Government had overturned in that country more Princes than Bonaparte iti Europe ; and it was a lirange doCtrine to fay, that the conduit of the Company's Officers ought not to be a I'ubjeCt for enquiry. Sir T. Tvrton replied, that it was his villi to give the Houfe every fatisfaCfion ; but at the prefent moment it was impollible, as he had no evidence before him which could enable him to prefcribe for htmfelf the line of conduCt he meant to purfue. Part of the evidence, when it did appear, might obviate fotne of the objeftions, and acquit fome of the parties whom he at prefent deemed guilty. He had no objection to mention one of bis objeCls; namely, his intention of bringing forward a criminal charge againft thofe, be they who they may, who bad been the authors of the feizure of the Carnatic Government, hurling the Nabob from bis throne, and throwing him into a dungeon, from whence be never came alive, and fettingnpin his ftead an ufurprr. This, he obferved, was an aft of the mnl't culpable delinquency on record, and which it certainly was the duty of Parliament to punifb. Sir A. If'eUefiey pofitively denied that the Nabob of the Carnatic bad ever been irnprifoned in a dungeon, or any whete el ft'. He died by a natural caufe, a fever, and not by poifon, as bad been infinuated. Mr . Sheridan e.- vpieffed foine aftonifhlltent at this aifertion, in Cxpi els contradiction to what he was convinced was the fact, namely, that the Nabob bad been imprifoned ; placed at the mercy of the ufurper, his fucceffor, and had not died by natural means. Thefe faCts be ( liould prove, whenever the inveftigation of the matter fhould come forward ; however, he did not mean to be underlined as 1' tathig the death of the Nabob as taking place with the knowledge or con nivance of Lord Wellelley. The motion was then agreed to.— Adjourned. TRIDAV. Mr. Biddulph prefented a Petition from the Electors of Weftininfter, Riding in St. Martin'sle- Grand, complaining of » breach of privilege, and entreating the Houfe to give the Petition the earl'ielt confideration. The Petition was read. It purported to be a Petition from r : Electors of Welhninller, in Si. Martin's le- Grand; aud it Hated, that tbey bad learnt with alarm and regret, that the Petition of Mr. Paull againft the return of M r. Sheridan, had been potiponed from the 2- Mh inih to the H i h of April next. That tho Petitioners conceived themfelvts disfranchifed till that time, as tbey were not reprefented iti ti at lloufe ; owing to Sir S. Hood never having taken his feat, but being conltantly employed at f « a; and Mr. Sheridan having procured his return by a frtlfe and colourable majority of votes, and by having had recourfe to divers corrupt practices, fuch as bribery, & c. which had prevented James Paull, Efq. their legal representative, frem taking his feat. The Petition went on to lender evidence to prove that Mr. Sheridan and his agents had tampered with certain witneli'ts on bebalf of Mr, I'aull, in order to intimidate and prevent them from giving evidence upon the Committee to be appointed. That fuch a trailfadion was contrary to a Standing Order of the 1 ioufe. The Petitioners, therefore demanded ant) infilled that the Houfe fhouhl proceed with tbe utmoft feVerity to the punilhment of the ollender: and the Petitioners prayed that uu earl) t h y might be appointed to profecme the inveltiga ion of. this bulinefs. Mr. Ttid'ttijp/ i faid, that it was not necelTary that he Ihould bold himfelf rt- fponlible for the matter contained ill the Petition, it had been given to him to preleut to the lloufe in bis capacity as a Member and as an Elector for Weftminlter. He therefore moved that the Petition be referred to a Committee of Privileges. Mr. Sheridan beggtd leave to lecond the motion. Lord Houick obferved, that certainly the Hon. Gentleman who prefented the Petition was not refponfible for ihe matter with which it was pregnant ; but in the dilcharge of bis duty as a Iteprefentative of the People he ought lo have feen that the Petition was, at leaft, couched in proper and refpeCtful language. He did not feel difpofed to lay much upon the Petition ; but lie. could not help thinking, that throughout the whole of it there was an evident and flu died intention of inftilling the Houfe. ( Hear! Hear ! from all parts.) lie, therefore, thought that As little delay as pofTible ought to occur before the lloufe Ihotild refent fo grofs and indecent an attack on its privileges, as the queftion regarding the Election itfelf ( till remained undecided. The Petition, from its tone and manner, could not be tolerated. Thofe men had certainly a right to petition, and it was the duty of the Houfe to attend to their complaints ; but when they injified and demanded that the Houfe Ihould proceed with feverity againft thofe whom they called offenders before invt ( ligation, this was not language confident with jutiice, or, tbe refpe'Ct due to theflouie. l i e would not, however, throw any obl'tacle in the way of the inquiry, lie hoped tbe matter would be inquired into, aud that cenfure would fall where cenCure was due. If it Ihould be proved that the allegation of' tampering with witueffes was well founded, then certainly the offenders deferved the beavieft cenfure. But on the other hand, if it was falfe and unfounded, then univerfal cenfure would fall upon the author, of fo unfounded a ( Under. He fuggelied, however, to the Honourable Gentleman, that it was his duty in any Petition be might hereafter prefent to take care that it ( hould be couched in language fit for the Houle to hear. Mr. IV. Wynne and Lord Temple feverally fpoke in reprobation of the indecorous language of the Petition. Mr. Whitbread fuggefled the propriety of withdrawing the Petition on account of the flrong fenfe uianifefttd againft it, in order that the Petitioners might have an opportunity of Hating their complaint in. more decorous words. Mr. Biddulph faid. he was not aware of there being any offenfive matter in the Petition. It had been given to him, and he had ( hewn it to feveral Gentleman before prefeuting il, who expreffed their opinion, that there was nothing in it of an improper nature, or fuch as the Hofue ought not to be acquainted with. Air. Fuller viewed the Petition as a moft daring and direC't infult to the Houle. The words wtre highly cenfurable—" iii/ ijt aud demand,"— could the Houfe liatid this *— (" A loud laugh!) • Mr . Sheridan faid, that an IIon. Geulleman bad entreated the llonle, on a former and fin. liar- occalion, to banilh all auimoftty from their minds. He coohf alfure the Houfe be felt no fenfation of the kind on the prefent oCcafion. He entered into this Election contelf in perfect good humour, and he was determined to preferve his temper and equanimity throughout: he was perfectly ready to encounter all the holt of libels, falfehood, malice, and perjury, that could be adduced againft him. Mr. Robinfon ohferveti, that the allegation in the petition that the Electors were disfrancliifed through Sir S. Hood being at fea could not be fupported. as they had elected that gallant Officer with their eyes open, and perfectly confcious that lie was expoled to calls in the fervice of his country. After fome remarks from Mr. Adam and Mr. Biddulph, the latUr withdrew the Petition, in order to correct tbe objectionable pa ( friges in it. The South Sea Bill was palled, and Ihe Houfe at Half pall One adjourned till VomNv. C O U R T OF KING'S BENCH, DUBLIN, Fit. 19. CFTLM. CON'. R I G H T HON*.
