[ 1663 Moniteurpf the 13th inst. gravely relates the circumstances of the abdication of the Crown by the usurping Son Ferdi- nand, in favour of his father Charles, from whom he had usurped it, and whom he now wishes long to live and enjoy it! It gives a letter from the old King to bis son, in which the latter is told, that by his own conduct he has placed a brazen wall between himself and the Crown of Spain ; and it is evident from other circumstances that Ferdinand will never again have the name of King in Spain, if ever he is again permitted to visit it. This same French Gazette ' styling him Prince of Asturias) says that in two or three days he will arrive atVelancy, an estate iu France belonging to " his Hi- jhness the Grand Elector" ( Camba- cere-''; and that the- King and Queen of Spain, the Queen cf litruria, the Infanta, Don Francisco, and the Prince of the Peace, are expected at the Palace of Fontainbleau by the 2() th. Thus the whole Royal Family of Spain will be within the gripe of the French Emperor. It is to be . expected that Murat, the newly- appointed Lieutenant- General of the kingdom of Spain, will govern for some time in the name of Charles, and that he will be the lait of the SpanishTine of the Bourbons. , There appears " to have bepn great slaughter of the people in Madrid, iu the insurrection on the 2d of May. The Moniteur coolley intimates, that an assemblage of 20!, 000 people was soon dispersed by thirty discharges of artillery with grape shot'; aftcv which the insurgents took refuge in the houses, which were broken into, and all who were found with arms in their hands were put to the sword. The cavalry charged through the streets and squares, and wherever there was any. assemblage of people they were cut down. The peasants who had come iu, were intercepted in their retreat to the country ; others were ' frustrated in attempting to seize the arsenal; many were instantly killed, and all thoe taken prisoners were shot. It is added that tiie French had 25 killed, and between 40 and 30_ wounded ; and that the li « s of tlie insurgents amounted to several thousands, of the lowest order. In a letter of Bonaparte to the Trince of Asturias, the wiiter intimates that the Prince has no right to the Throne but what he derives from his mother ; and that if, in prose- cuting bis process,"" Be had degraded her, he would have destroyed bis own right.— Hence it appears that the Prince's • primmed illegitimacy ru » . y one day be held out to the Spaniards as a reason for displacing him from the succession Mails are received from Malta and Gibraltar. The letters from Gibraltar state that the massacre of the Spaniards, in the late insurrections at Madrid, have been dreadful; and that oven the French mu t have lost some thou and; of men; that notwithstanding the disadvantage wilder which the Spaniards' attack their enemies, their spirit is far from subdued, and much more bloodshed is to be expect aid. In every part of Spain, regret is expressed that the ports were not opened to the Bnti h, at the first breaking out of the Revolution.— One letter status that the Commander of St. Sebastian bas received a written order from Chailes IV. to admit a French force into that garrison. Ill this manner JJooaparte will, it is to be feared, get possession of all the., fortresses iu Spain. Accounts have been received from Madeira, of the lgth ult. when our troops on the Island were all healthe. The- Hydra transport had sailed for the Brazils with 150 Portuguese emigrants who had made their escape from Lisbon. Advices have been received by Government of a very • bold and successful attack having been made by the Redwing, Capt. Usher, upon a Spanish convoy, near Cape Trafalgar, most of which he either sunk, took, of destroyed. Letters from the Minerva, of 44 guns, Capt. Haw- kins, dated the 6tb, off L'Orient, state, that the boats of that, ship, manned and armed, commanded by Lieut. Cooke, landed in a bay bear L'Orient, attacked and carried a battery defended by one 18 pounder, and a large party of Soldiers, in the block- house, and fired it through-; then spiked the gun, and took the centinel prisoner, when the c emy fii'ej through the loop holes, and unfortunately killed Lieut. Cooke, but his party succeeded in carrying the body on bo l . i, and the next day it was committed to the deep, with naval and military honours. The Tartar frigate arrived in Leith Roads, on Friday e. vemo j, from Noith Bergen, having lost her gallant Com- mand. r, Capt. B'eftesworth.— On Monday last, whilst the Ti « tar was lying becalmed near the shore, in the vicinity of liergen, several Danish gun- boats and a schooner made a sudden attack upon her; a fort on the coast opened its fire at the same time; and early in this combined attack Capt. Bettesworth was killed by a shot in the head. The frigate afterwards sunk one of the boats, and beat off the rest. Mr. Fitzlmgh, a promising young midshipman, was killed, and several of the crew were wounded, , Capt. Bettesworth had often distinguished himself by hi i gallant conduct on former occasions, and was sever ly wounded ill the West Indies some , vturs a » - o. He was the officer who, when Commander of the Cui'ieux brig,, brought the dispatches from Lord Nelson, when in pursuit of the combined fleet in the West Indies in 1805 ; on which occasion Lord Barham, then First Lord of the Admiralty,- immediately promoted him to the lank of Post Captain. Captain Bette? wortb was lately married to Lady Hannah Grey, sister to Earl Grey, and had . just fitted out the frigate hi which he has so prematurely lost hi* valuable life. — Captain Betteswprth was about 23 years of age, and he had been wounded twenty- four times before the shot whith produced his death. Captain Betteswbrtb's death is the more melancholy, inconsequence of the situation of Lady 11. Bettesworth, who is in a state of pregnancy. Colonel Pollen, who was unfortunately lost off Memel with Lord Rbyst'on, and others, was the only son of tin; Jtev. George Pollen, of Little Bookham, in Surry. He Was in the 33d year of his age. On Thursday se'nmgbt Mrs. Ford, wife of Henry Ford, Esq. of the county Down, iu Ireland, went, apparantly iu perfect health, to the rout of Mrs. Loftus Tottenham, in Dublin i whilst seated at the card- table, she was seized with sudden indisposition ; medical assistance was called, she was soon much recovered, and being near her aecouc/ i- • incut, she declined the offer of accommodation at. Mrs. Tottenham's, and was assisted into her coach to go to her civn house, accompanied by her sister and her son; but before they arrived at the house, the vital spark was fled, and this amiable Lady, who bad left her husband a few boms before, in health and happiness, was brought back to Mm a lifeless corpse. Mrs. Ford was eldest daughter of the late Right lion. William Brownlow, and sister to the Countesses of Powerscourt. ;* td Darnleyand Viscountess De * \ tsei. She had twenty children, of whom nine survive, A melancholy accident occurred at Brighton on Friday evening last :— Mr. Alexander, late a grocer in the Strand, London, who had for some time retired from business, unfortunately, in the dark, walked through an open part of the fence, near the Last battery, and fiouj thence over the cliff, and was killed by the fall. rJ^ HE WESTERN MEDICAL SOCIETY, next Meeting, Antelope Inn, Sherborne, June 10, 1808.

WESTMINSTER ELECTION.— On Monday there was a nu- merous meeting of the Electors of Westminster, at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, to celebrate the anniversary of Sir Francis Burden's ejection. The first toasts after dinner were, " The King."—" The Birth- day of our Liberty."—" The Triumph of Westminster."—" The Electors of the United Kingdom, and may they take a lesson from the Westminster School."— Mr. Adams pro- fosed, " Westminster's pride and England's hope— Sir ' rancis Burdett;" which being drank with loud plaudits, Sir Francis, in returning thanks, argued at great length on tbe necessity of a reform in the public expenditure, to induce the people to act with vigour in defending the country against tin- common enemy, and alluded to some recent proceedings 111 Parliament in the following terms:— *' The present Session, Gentlemen, like former Sessions, has added much to your burthens, but nothing to your liberties. It requires some apology from a Representative to his Constituents, that he suffered any Bill to pass the House of Commons without taking notice of it. But the fact is, Gentlemen, that a man's constitution must be as ' hard as iron, and his mind as quick as lightning, to epdure all the fatigues, and to understand all the business of the House of Commons, particularly in the multiplicity of business which is now brought before it. I have to confess, therefore, that a Bill of a most exceptionable character did pass through that House without having once attracted iny . attention ( the Indictment Bill); but, Gentlemen, there is arjother exceptionable Bill now before that House, I mean that respecting what is called a Local Militia— this Bill may not pass— at liist let us hope so ; but if it does pass, it. certainly shall not without my decided reprobation. I trust that my countrymen are not yet so low as to submit to that last of human degradation, to which this Bill would reduce them. When I consider the couduct of Ministers in overwhelming the people with taxe;; ruining one part <> f them, and reducing another to distress; and when thus broken down', attempting to seize and subject them to all the indignities which this Bill has in view, I cannot reflect upon the project without indignation." This speech was very loudly applauded. Sir Francis retired about ten o'clock, l> ufe jreat part of the company reinainc- to a late Lj- u. r. The Mtiros frigate, of 22 guns, Capt. Duff, we regret to say, has been lost in the Gulph of Mexico. The crew, liowever, have been saved. As Viscount Milton was riding in Hyde- park, on Thurs- day, he observed something floating in the Serpentine River, which finding on a nearer vieav to be a boy, his I.< ordship leaped into the water, and rescued him from death. On bringing him on shore, he appeared lifeless ; but Lord Milton had the pleasure, before he departed, of seeing him nearly restored. TROTTING MATCH.— Saturday, a horse, tlie property of Mr. Lean, of Coleman- street, started on a piece of ground between Cambridge and Huntingdon, to trot 14 miles within the hour, drawing a light vehicle, in which was a person of 14 stone. The animal set off at a winning rate, kept tile whole distance without making a break, and com- pleated the journey in one minute and a half within the time. The stakes were 2501. to 50/. against the horse. Bullock, the bankrupt, whose cast: was lately reported by tbe Recorder, has received his Majesty's pardon, on condition of being transported to New South Wales for life ; and at five o'clock this morning was sent off, with 12 others, for Portsmouth, to be embarked at that place. LAW.— Colonel Watson, con\ icted of using offensive language to General Gwynne, who had been President of a Court Martial, before which the Colonel was tried, and for having endeavoured to provoke him to fight a duel, was 011 Monday brought up to the Court of King's Bench to receive judgment, and was sentenced to one year's imprisonment in the King's Bench Prison, and to enter i « to a recognizance in 200/. to keep the peace for two years. Mr. Goodridge, an Apothecary at Cranbourn, in Dorset- shire, also attended to receive sentence, having been con- victed of asaulting Mrs. Charlotte Miles, who resides in the same town, by pinching her arm, and pulling her 011 one side, in order to take the wall of her. Many affidavits were read, which disclosed a variety of ridiculous circumstances, to shew the ill- will that subsisted between the parties. It likewise appeared that the town's people took part in the quarrel, and exhibited the Prosecutrix in efiigy, riding upon an ass. They also paraded before her door, and cried out " Goodridge for ever— and Madame Bonaparte in the river." The Defendant, however, had no concern in these transactions.— The Court, after hinting that the Lady had better exercise some countroul over her own conduct, and observing upon the Defendant's Laving been harrassed from prison to prison, by her vexation, ordered him to pay a fine of Is. and to enter into recognizances to be of good be- haviour for the future. Capt. Williams, of the African ship Croydon, charged with the murder of a seaman of the name of Nicholls, at Charles- ton, South Carolina, by firing a pistol at him, and for whose apprehension Government had offered a reward, surrendered himself on Monday, at Bow- street, and was ordered by Mr. Read to be confined at the Brown Bear. Capt. Williams was attended to the Office by the Mate and Surgeon of his ship, and several other friends. On Monday evening, about 11 o'clock, a fire broke out in the lower part of Mr. Ilicks's house, East- lane, Bertnond- sey; the house was completely consumed, and one Gentle- man perished in the flames; the rest of the family useaped from the upper windows. On Wednesday afternoon, about five o'clock, as one of the Portsmouth stages was on its way to town, the coach- man turned a little out of the road, near Claphanij when the coach immediately upset. The consequence was, that one male passenger on the outside was killed on the spot, another was so dreadfully bruised that he is since dead, and a woman had her thigh broken, and was conveyed in a cart to St. George's Hospital, where she underwent ampu- tation. Not one of the passengers escaped without being severely bruised, and the coachman had his leg broke. CITY BUSINESS.— Yesterday a Court of Aldermen was held, at which two of the Aldermen, Lea and Roweroft, resigned their- gowns.— The Court directed that the price of Brtad should be continued the same as last week.

At a MEETING of the COMMITTEE for op- posing any Bill to suspend Distilling from Com, Mr. HINTON BAILEY in the Chair, On the motion of Mr. Faithfull, seconded by Mr. Goldfinch, RE. SOI. VED,— That the Resolution of Thanks to the County Members at Winchester last meeting, the Chairman's letter, transmitting it to them, and their answers respectively, be referred to the consideration of this meeting. RESOLUTION. RESOLVED—' That the Thanks of this Meeting be given to Sir H. I'. ST. JOHN MILDMAY and Mr. CHUTE, for their watchful attention to the service of their Couutry in Parlia- ment, and particularly for the stand they made on a late re- port, recommending the suspension of the use of grain in British distilleries ; and that they be requested to oppose to the utmost any bill for that purpose, in every stage of it. The Chairman's letter inclosing it to the County Members respectively:— " I cannot omit a moment the honor to transmit the in- closed Resolution, which, though our meeting was not nu- merous, 1 have the pleasure to believe, conveys the prevailing sense of the Yeomanry of Hants. " I have the honor to be, Sir, " Your faithful and obedient Servant, HINTON BAILEY, Chairman." Sir HENRY MII. DMAY'S Answer: " DEAR SIR, Cavendish- square, May 16th. " I have this moment received the favour of your letter, communicating to me the flattering approbation ot so large a meeting of my most respectable and intelligent constituents and neighbours. I shall have the greatest satisfaction in con- forming my conduct in Parliament, on the subject of the Bill now depending to prohibit the use of grain in the distil I e rics, to their wishes. It is, to say the truth, no sacrifice of my own opinion, as my sentiments most perfectly coincide with thos..' of- the Meeting at Winchester. " I am as anxious for the welfare and prosperity of the West India Islands as their warmest advocates; but I can see no reason why their distresses are to be relieved by imposing restrictions and burthens on the landed interest. 1 think that the land, and those connected with it, pay already enough to the public exigences, and more than their share ; and I can conceive no good reason why the relief cf the West Indies is to be thrown on their shoulders, and on them alone. " I have already oppe sed this measure in the Committee of which I am a member, and I mean to oppose it again in the House; not only because I think it unnecessary and ineffec- tive to its object, but because I consider it highly injurious to the landholder, and extremely discouraging to the interests and improvements of agriculture. I am, dear Sir, " Your most obliged and faithful Servant, " II. P. S. MILDMAY." Mr, CHUTE'S Answer : " SIR,— I am this morning informed of the result. of the Meeting of Winchester Yeomanry, at Winchtster, on Sa- turday last ; and cannot delay a pest to acknow ledge the com- pliment paid to me on the occasion, and to assure you, I shall be very happy and ready to pay every attention to your recom- mendation and request. Iam, Sir, " Your obedient and obliged humble Servant, " 29, Great George- street, t „ w rHtITF " May IS, 1803." / w. unuic. RESOLVED,— That any Bill to suspend distilling from Corn, grounded on the Report before the House, would not only be seriously detrimental to the landed interest,— injurious to farmers,— and partially oppressive ;— but would be repugnant to the CLEAREST evidence contained in such Report, of the alarming effects to be apprehended from the measure. RESOLVED,— That this Meeting be therefore adjourned ; and it is accordingly adjourned, subject to the call of the Chairman on any occurrence requiring it. [ 1652 RESOLVED,— That the proceedings . of this Meeting, signed bv the Chairman, be inserted in the provincial papers ; twice in each. 111NTON BAILEY, Chairman. A CARD. ESSRS.

With respect to the plan pro- posed by the Noble Earl, something similar was, some years ago in contemplation, but it was found that it would lead to° much harshness and inconvenience, and therefore it was given tip. The Bill went through a Committee, was reported, and ordered to be read a. third time on Monday. Eaxl Stanhope remarked, that it was proper every Noble Lord should be fully aware of the day- when the Indictment Bill was to be read a third time ; it might not be the general opinion that a man should be convicted in his absence ; and others as well as himself might wish to enter their protest against such a principle. He therefore moved that the third reading of ihe bill he on Monday next, and that the Lords be summoned. Ordered. Adjourned to Triday. . HOUSE OF COMMONS. WEDNESDAY, May 25.] A Committee was chosen by ballot to enquire into the merits of the Sandwich Election Petition. Sir S. Rontilly brought in the bill for mitigating the - severity of the criminal laws, hy lessening the nnmber of capital punishments ; which was read a first time. The Simqnbourne Rectory Bill was read a second time, and ordered to be committed. Sir F. Bnrdett stated that a late verdict, which subjected him to payment of a proportion ot the expellees of fitting up the hustings on the late election for Westminster, had t - Pti enfjr « ed by an execution ; that he conceived this affected the privileges of the House, and that the ac- commodations ought to have been provided at the expence cf the Returning Officer. Sir Francis made no motion on tilt subject; and after some discussion, it appearing to be the general opinion that Sir Francis's agents had made him liable to the demand, the matter was allowed to rest. Several petitions on behalf of the Catholics, claiming relief from the civil disabilities to which they are still liable, • were presented; after which Mr. Grattan moved that the petition which lie had presented on a former day should be read, which was done accordingly. Mr. Grattan tlwu, fn a most eloquent speech, stated the origin jind cau> es of the various Acts of which the Catholics complained, as^ gued the policy of now restoring them to every civil right which their fellow- subjects enjoy, and concluded with moving that their petitions be referred to a Committee of the whole House. , Mr. Maurice Fitzgerald seconded the motion. No person appearing disposed to answer Mr. Grattan, the « me, tion was called for, and the gallery cleared for a division; but the division did not take place; and after some taunting observations from Mr. Martin ( of Gallwa^') on the silence of his Majesty's Ministers, Mr. Secretary Canning rose, and sipd, if he and hi colleagues wished to go to a silent vote on this question, it was not from any want of disposition to shew the utmost respect to the. Right Hon. Gentleman, who had brought forward the business in so able, eloquent, and candid a manner, but rather from a perfect coincidence in some of his sentiments. There were, however, many strong reasons why the extension of the discussion was not to bf wished for. If his Majesty's Ministers could see no prospect of a success- ful issue to tiie question before the House, and saw much mischief in the discussion, was it unreasonable that they should be willing to avoid the debate ? He considered it in- expedient, if not dangerous, to bring forward the question at'pre eut, and on this, ground lie should conscientiously vote against the motion. Mr. Windham ridiculed the pretended fears of the Right Hon. Secretary, the whole of wlio6e arguments only amounted to this, that it was inconvenient to him and his friends at present to discuss a question, in which the general interests of the State, and the welfare of millions of his Majesty's loyal subjects, were materially concerned. Lord Pollington said, he could never give his concur- \ rence to a measure, which sooner or later would endanger ' the Protestant establishuisnt. Lord Milton and Mr. Fitzgerald Spoke in favour of the motion. , Lord Castlereagh objected, nn public grounds, to this repeated discussion of one of the most delicate and impor- tant subjects that was ever submitted to the consideration ef the Legislature. After defending his own motives and • principles, and the motives and principles on which the late Mr. Pitt had acted with respect to the Catholics, he observed, that the principle of the Hon. Gentlemen' opposie seemed to be this— to promote and agitate theCatholicelaims when they were out of power, and to compromise and abandon them when they were in pewer. He admitted that the language used in discussing the measure of the Union, might have led to the expectation, that it was intended to make some concession to the Irish Catholics but he denied most positively that either the Parliament or the Government of Ireland was ever pledged to such a concession. Never could the claim be urged with propriety against the general Protestant feeling; and that that feeling strongly expressed on the present occasion he was per- fectly satisfied. He thought, therefore, that the Hon. Gentleman, hy whom the motion was made, would have * eted more wisely if he had waited until a more auspicious period. L'. ri Henry Petty replied, that the question was not brought forward by him and his friends; it proceeded from the unprompted sense and feeling of the Catholics themselves, whose petitions merited attention, and there- fore the motion had his support. Sir John Cox Hippisiey and Mr. William Elliot also spoke in favour of the motion. Mr. Wilberforce thought the present an unfavourable moment for agitating the question, when even those who brought it forward knew it was impossible to carry it. Mr. George Ponsonby made some severe' observations en the conduct of Mr. Wilberfurce, calculated to shew that, in his opinion, that gentleman's professions and con- duct were much at variance. He then adverted to the in- sinuation of a Noble Lord, that gentlemen bad brought forward the question when out of office, and abandoned it when in office. This charge certainly did not attach to the Noble Lord, who happily contrived never to be out of office : whether the question was agitated or not, he was sure to be in place. He was with one Administration be cause it approved tha measure, with another because it dis approved it. But with regard to the pledge so iuue' talked of lie never had much attended to it, having op posed the Union, thinking, as he did, it must prove ruinou. to both countries. He however recollected ccrtain letters, one of" which was from Lord Cornwallis; another from the Noble Lord who represented the sentiments o! the Cabinet on that subject. When Mr. Pitt went out of ofiice, these letters were shewn to the Catholics, ill v, l ie- Mr. Pitt, Lord Melville, the Right fckm. Seurewry ( Mr, Canning), held, out , a determination nev5r to accept of ofiice again, unless the concession of the Catholic claims could be securely stipulated. These letters they printed, published, circulated; nor have they ever since been contradicted, yet how have they redeemed their pledge ? In 1805, the great charge against the Catholics was, that their Clergy were appointed hy the Pope, and that by means of that appointment principles hostile to Great Britain, and favourable to France, were inculcated into the Ulinds of the Catholics. To remove this objection, the / atbolic Clergy had otfercd to leave the nomination of their Bishops to the King. They agreed to meet when a Bishop dies, and choose three persons, of whom the Crown is to ap- point one. Should the Crown disapprove of all the three, they will proceed to choose three others, and so on, until their choice is such as to meet the approbation of hi; Majesty. What more is it possible for them to do, in proof of their loyalty and att iehiue. it to the. Crown ? He concluded with reading a letter from Mr. Plunket, to prove that nine- tenths of the Protestants of Ireland were desirous of eman- cipating the Catholics. Mr. Vorke entreated to know if the statement Mr. Ponsonby had made of the di- position of the Catholic Clergy, to allow the interference of the Crown in the ap- pointment of their Bishops, was founded upon any public or authenticated act of the Catholic Clergy ; because if it was, their acquiescence in such an arrangement would go great way in removing many of the difficulties which he felt on this subject. Mr. Ponsonby assured the Hon. Gentleman that his statement was strictly correct. Mr. IVhUbread made a long and animated speech in support. of the claims of the Petitioners. Mr. Hutchinson, at nearly five o'clock, moved that the Debate should bs adjourned. A division took place on this motion,— Ayes 118— Noes 298— Against Adjournment 180. The discussion then proceeded on the. main question, Mr. Hutchinson. and- some other Members having taken a share in the debate, which terminated in a division, with- out any reply from Mr. Grattan, for referring the Petition ' foit- ft\ uunittee:- r- Ayes 128— Noes 281— Majority 153.

The Report reflected on several medical persons concerned in the con- duct and superintendance of the Medical Department of the Arrny. Mr. Knight had made regulations in the hospi- tals by which 40,000?. per annum had been saved, yet the Report had not done him justice. Several Gentlemen concurred in eulogising the great merits of Mr. Knight. Mr. Huskisson moved for leave to bring in a Bill to enable the Commissioners of Public Accounts for the West Indies more speedily and effectually to investigate the same. Mr. Banltes adverted to the appointment of these Com- missioners, and the delays in their proceeding*. Me thought it would be for the advantage of the public if the auilit of some departments of the Public Expenditure should be put in other hands than those of the General Boax- d. Leave was given to bring in the Bill, and also another Bill for the better regulating the audit of the Barrack Accounts. Mr. Banlies proposed to refer to a Committee an ac- count presented yesterday, relative to the amount of Mr; Palmer's per centage on the revenue of the Post- Office. His motive in making this reference was, that he feared the return over- rated what was to be properly only the' pil' centage on the net revenue. After some explanation from Mr. Long and Mr. Rose, Mr. Baukes's motion was agreed to, and a Committee ap- pointed accordingly. On the motion of Mr. G. Van It tart it was ordered, that there be laid before the House an account of the sums paid to tire Receivers- General of the Land Tax, on account of fines for balloted men under the Militia Act of 1797- The House went into a Committee on th Orders In Council, and some witnesses were examined, whose general testimony went to prove that the Orders in Council much impeded their business.— Adjourned.

Yesterday there were several arrivals from France, The letters by one vessel state, thai the Bavonne Decrce of tiie 27th ult. has been strictly enforced again t all Ame- rican ships in the French ports.

Pr, par ti are making at Charante for the reception of Bonaparte, who, it is expected, will soon visit that poit. This morning two Mails from Gottenbnrgh arrived. Sir John Moore, with the whole of the British Expedition, arrived oft' Gottenburgh on the 17ih inst. The ultimate destination of- this force was dot known, but it is by no means improbable that the unexpected and treacherous surrender of Sweaborg may render an alteration in the plan of operations necessary. At Sweaborg the Russians found, it is said, between two and three hundred vessels of different descriptions, which would enable them to transport a very for- midable force across the Gulph, by which the safety of Stockholm might be endangered. The Swedes appear to have met with a check in Norway, though, by no means of so serious a nature as was represented in the Danish Papers. A small detachment of between 400 and 500 men, under the command of Colonel Gahn, were surrounded and taken prisoners. In Finland the Russians had experienced some checks, and on the Island of Oland, in which a party of them bad effected a landing, they had all been taken prisoners by the peasants, and the craft in which they had arrived had been destroyed. The immediate object of the English Expedition was not known at the time of the departure of the Mails. The late arrivals from Gibraltar and Cadiz have given rise to a number of reports, respecting the state of the Spanish interior; It was reported yesterday, that the people in Catalonia have taken up arms against the French, to the number of 70,000; and that the Superb conveys to England their request to be assisted with 100,000 stand of arms, and 20,000 men. It was farther said last night, that the Crane, from off Cadiz, has brought an account of the Spaniards having driven the French out of that city, a,. d taken possession of the French men of war in the harbour.— Such rumours as these require to he received with extreme caution. On Wednesday his Majesty held a Private Levee at Buckingham Hotise, which was attended by all the Ministers and officers of St. tte. Mr. Ad. dr was presented on his return from Vienna, as were several Officers on their pro- motions. His Majesty afterwards held a Privy Cou . cil, at which Earl Camden was sworn in Lord Lieut, of Kent. According to an account presented to the House of Com- mons, the net amount of the stores taken at Copenhagen is 270,240 (. 6d. The Methodist Fund has lately been strengthened by 7000/. as a legacy; and 3000/ i ha; also been left for enlarg- ing their chapel in the City- road. THEATRICAL.— Miss Pope, for many years one of the ornaments of the Biitish Stage, last night took leave of the Public. The pla/ was The Heir at Law, for her own and last Benefit, in which she appeared as Lady Duberly. The audience, who were very numerous,' marked her final exit from the Stage with the loudest approbation of her former excellence, and the deepest regret for the close of her theatrical career. Miss, Pope has conducted herself with great prudence, and retires with a handsome fortune. FASHIONABLE ELOPEMENT.— A recent event is likely to be followed by circum tanSes that will add to the affliction of the families of the parties, A hostile meeting is ex- pected— not between the husband and the gallant, but between the high- spirited and amiable brother of the Lady ( Lord B— gh— h) and the man who has tarni- hed the honour of a family, wherein, heretofore, " all tile uieu have been valiant, and ait ib# wtnuen chaste.'; CONTRACTS .

FRIDAY, May 27.] The Royal Assent was given by Commission to several public and private Bills. IjOrd Grenville moved that the petitions of the Catho- lics of Ireland, praying for relief froiu the disabilities to which they are subjected by law, should be referred to a Committee ofthe Whole House. His Lordship admitted that the worst condition in which the Catholics could be placed in this country, was infinitely preferable to any si- tuation under the Tyrant of France ; that, in fact, in this country they had so many indulgences, that the hardships they ielt were not great; but that It would be true policy completely to emancipate them, and give them every pri- vilege which other British subjects enjoy. A long debate ensued, but on a division the motion was oaejjaRived by a great majority.— Adjourned. HOUSE OF COMMONS. FRIDAY, Nay 27.] Mr. T. Grenville reported from the Sandwich Election Committee, tfc< q. Capt. P. Rainier, " the sitting Member, was duly elected ; petition against bis return not frivolous nor vexatious.

Which motions were • greed to, and the report was ordered to be received on Monday. Dr. Lawrence stated that great, frauds were committed on ship- owners, merchants, & c. by boatmen stealing the anchors, & e. of ships, in Order to obtain the salvage: he then moved tor and obtained leave to bring in a'bill to check these frauds.

It is believed that a convoy of 21 transports, seen by the Transit, had this destination ; but whether to obtain possession of the flfeet, or to assist the Spaniards, is not. pretended to be known.

RIOTS at MANCHESTER.—' HIE Manchester paper of Wed- nesday contains the unwelcome intelligence, that the dis- tresses of the Cotton Weavers have driven ' them to ex- cesses which are much to be regretted, and which , t is hoped will speedily be repressed. The following is the account: MANCHESTER, May 25. In consequence of the rejec- tion of the Bill for fixing the nwiimnm of wages, a very great agitation has been excited amongst the Weavers in this town and vicinity. Yesterday and this day niany thousands of them assembled in a field near St. George's church, by Newton- la-: e, and appointed Delegates to at- tend the Magistrates with a statement c. f their grievances, which they assert arose " not so much from a scarcity of employment, as from the unparalleled reduction which the'prices of their work have recently experienced ; inso- much, that, after labouring for six, days, at the rale of 14 or 15. hours per day, they cannot possibly eatn mare than seven or eight shillings 1— A pittance which will not sup- port nature. Their employers, on the contrary, insist that, owing to the stagnation of trade, they cannot afford to pay higher prices, and promise to increase them to. their wonted standard as soon as a restoration of peace shall enable them. Letters from Manchester, received this morning, state that the discontents among the cotton weavers had increased, and that very serious consequences are appre- hended. In dispersing the rioters, at the different periods, several of them have been severely wounded, and 31 of the ringleaders have been seized, and committed to prison.
