From the LONDON PAPERS, May 20. LONDON. DISTURBANCES AT HAMBURGH. ON Easter Tuesday, the Commandant or- dered the gates of the town to be shut at an earlier hour than usual, on the pretence of its Ije- ing a holiday, and with a view to prevent excesses, in consequence of this, a number of the inhabitants were shut out, and about 1000 presented themselves before the gates, and de- manded entrance. The gates not being open • ed at their demand, from noise and clamour the populace proceeded to pelt the soldiers with stones, and a very serious commotion took place. Some of the military quartered in the : town, joined the guard, and fired upon the people, seven or eight of whom were killed, aad many more wounded. At this juncture a firebroke out in the town, and some person rang the alarm bell. This caused a general eonfusion; the French Com- mandant considered it as the premeditated sig- nal for a general insurrection, and, under this impassion, dispatched a courier to BERNA- DOTTE for succours, who was at that time in Jutland. In the meanwhile, the Senate assem- bled, and effectual means were taken to quell the disturbance. Peace being restored,- the Se- nate dispatched a messenger to BERNADOTTE, explaining the affair, and promising to prevent, as far a3 lay in their power, similar tumults.'— BERNADOTTE, it was supposed, had thought proper to meet the last message with indiffe- rence ; for when the account came away, French troops were marching towards Ham- burgh, from various, quarters. This affair will furnish a pretext for new extortions. The day after the disturbance, a Proclama- tion was issued by the French, to prevent riots in future. It was ordered, that any person sounding the alarm bell without instructions from the French, should be shot on the spot ; that any person throwing a stone at a French soldier, should be tried by a military commis- sion, and if found guilty, be punished • with death. If four or more persons were ' found talking together, the French soldiers with .68 men. But only 44 on board. She r - • had taken a brig from Dundee, in ballast, for America, and a sloop from Banff, also in ballast, the day before ; and when I sbseryed her she had just boarded a slodp of this place, and was in chace of several other vessels, which would have inevitably been captured had I not hove in sight.

After a few observations from the Earl of LAUDERDALE, his motion ' was NEGATIVED, SC the Interlocutor of the Court of Session AF- FIRM'ED,- with the tilteraison proposed by the LORD CHANCELLOR. ThW case is of great importance ta the CLERGY of SCOTLAND and " the LANDED INTE- REST, as it iijvolvesVquestion, Whether the stipend of a.

The judgement of the Court of Session, Sd of February 1808, as Lords Commissioners of Teinds, was, "• This Court having been esta- blished- by an act in tht year 1707, as a perma- nent Court of Commission, in pla'ce of the for- mer temporary commission, for the . purpose: ' inter alie7, of modifying and augmenting the stipends of Parochial Ministers, out of the Tiends; it is the duty of the Court, and with- in its powers, as recognized by the House of Lordsj in two- decided cases, in the years 1784 atid- l789j and b- y. the uniform practice of the Court, acquiesced in by all parties, in a great variety of instances, ever since the last, men- tioned peifod?, to receive such applications, when made in the regular form, and to decide upon them according to the state of matters at the time, & fb'e merits of each particalar case, mounting, eight guns and thirty- one men, out .,, /, , , , : me uii « -, ot luc IHCI NJ cantur/ I notwithstanding a former, augmentation, since capture.

Mr. CLERK was heard again in reply for the Respondent, on - Wednesday & Thursday. On Friday, Mr CLERK was finally heard in his reply ( being his fifth day of speaking there- on). on tV behalf of the appellants. Saturday, May 21. The House met this night to determine on ' infofmatiuD I" tKe mode of proceeding' ia this cause. After. portant cause may be returned to the Cou: £ of - Session before it can receive any decision here. By the interlocutor of the Court of Session, i; is found, " That the Estates of Rexiurgh wen heldby the late WM. Dukeof ROXBURGH, under an eritail which contains an effectual prohibit)! n against altering the order of succession ; and that th a persons called to the succession und r that branch of the destination, beginning with the eldest daughter of HARY LORD KER, are heirs of Tailzie, under the said Entail." It. ap. pears probable, from this interlocutor, that neither Sir JAMES NORCLIFF INNES KER, nor Brigadier- General KER, have proved their pe- digree, else there would have : been a finding to that effect, and the word persons would not have been used. Now, fcis Lordship remarked, that it was not the practice of that House to a- gitate abstract points of Law, without knowing that the proper parties were before them. Such an inquiry cannot originate in' the HOUSE of LORDS, which is a Court of Dernifr Resort. HOUSE OF COMMONS. Friday, May 20.

INSURRECTION AT MADRID. ATTACK UPON MURAT. The Moniteur of the 11th, gives intelligence from Madrid, written on the evening of the second, by which it appears that. Violent dis- turbances had taken place in that Capital. This Fr'& teh' account begins by stating, that ever since the events at Aranjuez, the people of Madrid had been in a disturbed state; that of- fence was daily given TP the French ; that for two days there had been numerous assemblies, which appeared to have some certain object iii tiew,' The cool and prudent part of tho French and Spanish saw that a crisis was ap- proaching, and wished to bring the multitude to reason. The Queen of ETRURIA and Don FnANcisCo wished to go to Bayoone. The Grand Duke of BERG, General MURAT, at- tempted to rescue them. He was surrounded AJ he was going to the Palace, and defended hirtiself long, and he was on the point of fall- ing, when ten grenadiers r& cued" him. At the sarue moment a second Officer was wound- ed, by another crowd. The great street of Akfllu, the Sun Gate, and the great Square, were crowded. The GRAND DLIITE gave the alarm, and flew to his post, and a Battalion of the French marched to theGRANDDuKEat the Palace, < vsith eutmdn, where the disturbers had assembled.' A firing took place from UVo ranks, and in A short time the multitude were dispersed.— General. GROUCHY was ordered to disperse the crowds in the street of Alcala— thirty pieces of cannon with grap> e shot, and a charge of cavalry, cleared all the streets. Yet the in- surgents, though they fled from the streets into the houses, fired from them up6n the F~ renth soldiers— Generals GUILLOT and DAUSRIH broke open the doors, and EILL who were found with arms in their hands were put to death.— General DAMESNEL made two charges with cavalry in the square, and had two horses Idl- ed under him, The insurgents made for the arsenal to stsize the arms and cannon— they broke in, but General LEFRAEN arrived in time to save the arms All who were in the arsenal < were put to death. The l^ rench Garrison of Madrid were close engaged in this affair.— When the firing of cannon was heard in the camps outside the City the troops marched immediately. When the EMPEROR received the tidings of" the above business, he wentto King CHARLES, and met him coming from the Empress's, where he had dined, and on telling him- the news, the King said—"- I have foreseen this evil— those who set the populace on think they can restrain them." The King instantly resolved to appoint the Grand Duke of BERG Lieutenant- General of the Kingdom, and at the same fin. E sent Pa- tents to the Councils of Castile and War. The King afterwards" called- the Prince of pn 3W T As TV R I AS to Elm, and read the Grand Duke of BERG'S Letter. He observed to him, that he now saw the result of his criminal conduct in flattering tbe prejudices of the people, and forgetting the sacred respect he owed to tiie Throne and the lawful Authorities— Popular commotions were like lire, easily excited, but it required another mind and another arm than his to extinguish them. The next article is a letter from BONAPARTE ~ to the PRINCE of ASTORIAS, dated the 16th April, in which he defends the PRINCE of PEACE He addresses him 41 My Brother," at the beginnning ; but in the body ot the Lt- ' ter styles him only " Royal Highness." The next is a long letterfiom King CHARLES' to the PRINCE of ASTURIAS, dated the 2d May, relative to hrs conduct. The sd article IS the following letter from the PRINCE of ASTURIAS to the Infant Don A* ITONIO at Madrid.— " I have sect the following letter to my dear Father to- day:— 1 Honoured Father and Lord, In ai der, to give you a proof of my love and obedience, and in fulfilment of your desire, I resign iny Crown in favour of your MAJEST: Y, wishing you may enjoy it many years! l_ . re- commend to your MAJESTY the persons who have served me since the 19th of March.

' Bayonne, May 6." FERDiNAND'then recalls all powers he had given to persons to fill different offices. The Monitcur states a variety of circum- stances concerning their Majesties the King & t Oueen of SPAIN, who arrived at Bayonne on the last day of April, where, as well as on the. j road, they have been received ar. d treated wito all the honour and distinction due to theirrank. In half an' hour after their arrival^ his Majesty- paid them a visit, which was of long duration. They reside in the Government Palace, while the Emperor and Empress hare taken up their j residence in the castle of Marrac. Among the Spaniards who waited upon King CHARLES IV. & Queen LOUISA, was the PRINCE of ASTURIAS, their son. After the u- Bual salutation, their Majesties retired; the Prince wasdesirous to. follow them ; but die King evented him, saying in Spanish—" Prince, have you not yet enough insulted my grey hairs ?" On the lst, the KING and QUEEN dined • •>. ith the EMPF. ROR, in the Palace of Marrac. MAIL FROM GOTTENTBURGH.

The 17th M'trch, the enemy opened a well- directed fire from a battery constructed on silockhdm's Cliff. Tiie 18th, lStjjs, and .20th, the enemy continued to keep tip brisk can- nonade against the fortress, and threw numer- ous shells and red- hot bails into our works. " The 21st March an Officer arrived with a ?' ag of • nee, and required a conference; the principal ob ct of which was, that or. - our side ihe town should not be fired upon, in order to p event the mischief which might otherwise be done to ' the distressed inhabitants, and that, on the other hand, the enemy should not erect any batteries within the lines. " The 25th March we discovered that the enemy was constructing a battery on the heights, in front of Ulricaburgb-, our fire was immediately directed against thit point, and answered by ' the? enemy, with bombs, shells, & H£ EDINBURGH ADVERTISER j rank and file of the Garrison were killed, and j 32 wounded.

RIPEE BATTALION, in conee- quence of its being undei stood that a pretty general inclination existed among these VOLUN- TEERS to extend their services, and become LOCAL MILITIA, Colonel A. W. HAMILTON, their Commander, submitted a proposition . to that effect to their choice. In doing so, the. Colonel did not press the measure on thetn, particularly those who had families. He left it to their free choice; nor, as the whole pfo- visions of the Bill were but imperfectly known, would he consider their offer as a definitive en- gagement, should any material alteration take place from what was at present known ; and he hoped that they all \* ould be of opinion with him that however pleasant it might be for' a general demonstration to be shewn, to meet the views of his Majesty's Government, yet that no imputation was chargeable On those who might feel any inconvenience in the mea- sure proposed. Upon inquiry at each indivi- dual, abotcfour- fflhs of the whole agreed to the proposals of the Colonel. The Kilmar- nock division of the battalion are equally wil- linty. to transfer their cfMrwii-^ e " ling, to transfer their services."

TO TRADESMEN AND INNKEEPERS. LANDS NEAR WILSONTON IRON- WORKS, To be Feued for Building, and a Good Situation for an Inn. SEVERAL ACRES of the Lands of FORTH are to be Feued for Building, in LOTS-, from a quarter of an acre, to two, or more acres.——- There is abundance of lime and free- stone on the spot, with excellent water, coal, and peat. The mnds are of good quality, and lye within half a mile of the Wilsontown Iron- works, where work- men of all descriptions may have constant em- ployment. The. inhabitants, to the number of two thou- sand, have hitherto been supplied with every arti- cle of necessity by the proprietors af the Iron- works, but as they are now about to give up the store, there is in consequence a good opening for tjie establishment of tradesmen of every descrip. tion, and a ready- money market for every article used by that class of people. The lands to be feued are bounded by the new tuttepike road from Edinburgh to Lanark, and are distant. about 24 miles from the former, 8 from tiie latter, 28 mile's from Glasgow, 6 from Carnwatb and Whitburn, and about 7 from West Calder, to all which places there are constant and regular arriers. Good Situation for an Inn.— About a mile north from the Iron- works, there is a very eli- gible situation for the erection of an Inn, for which purpose the proprietor is willing to give what ground may be necessary, either in feu or lease. It is on the before- tix'ntioned road fro^ i Edinbu » ghto Lanark, ^ tid being about halfway between Edinburgh and Lanark, is well adapted for keeping post- horses, this roud being, now the most approved, and likely to become still more public, by a new branch about to be made to communicate with Ayrshire. All the materials for building are at hand, and jthe'proprietor will give every encouragement to any respectable person wishing to settle there in that line. For further particulars, application may TO BUILDERS. FEUS, in a variety ot desirable Situations, some of which are on very moderate terms, with some Garden Ground behind.
