Printed and Published by John Price, Market- place Leicester, [ No. i92t FRIDAY, February - 24, 1809. - ) Circulated through the principal Towns, & populous Villages, in the Counties of Leicester; Rutland, ) t Lincoln, Nottingham, Derby, Stafford, Warwick, Northampton, Cambridge, and York. S I Price SIX PENCE, i( r J One Pound Seven Shilling p. Ann SUNDAY'S Sf TUESDAY'S POSTS LONDON. MONDAY, Feb. 20. Dutch and German Papers down to the 29th nit. have been received in town; by which we learn, that Austria still persists in her mi- litary equipments. Twenty thousand French conscripts have lately been sent into Germany. The mos, active preparations are making by the King of Naples ( Murat) for making a descent on Sicily. Mr. Adair, our Minister at Constantinople, has had his first audience of the Grand Seignior and was most favourably received. This in- telligence is given in letters from Gibraltar, dated the 27th ult. The Cabinets of Saxony and Bavaria, are • cach engaged in measures for the augmentation of their military establishments. In Saxony the recruiting service is forwarded with great activity, and it is said that the system of con- scription will shortly be adopted there. A militia is forming in Bayaria, and vast num- bers of ammunition- waggon* and military Tehicles, called ambulances, have been built at Munich. The Emperor of Austria lately made a sur- vey of the new works constructing at JablUnka, Eruen, and Olmutz, accompanied by the above Simarro— it is evident, therefore, that the victory of which he boasted, oijep the corps of Gen. Penegas, on the 13th, lrad not produced any result favourable to the enemy, as, fifteen days after, we fiud lie had not gained an inch of ground. The Duke of Infantado had established his head- quarters at Moya, on the borders of Valencia, communicating with the army of Gen. Reding, in Catalonia, and being, at the same time, in a condition to support the army in La Mancha. The Valencia Gazette states, that the Mar- quis Lazun was on the 22d January at Gorona, that a division of his army under Gen. Cloro, had driven the enemy from Ampurias, and had pushed its patroles as far as Rosas, and had surprised at the village of Padret, a body of Italian troops, having under their escort a considerable quantity of military stores for Rosas No mention is made of Saragossa, further than that an atmy was forming at Barbastro, in Arragon, for its relief. The gallant General Romana and his troops have taken possession of Bayona, a sea- port to the south- west of Vigo, from, which our shipping may carry them oil' in safety, if found necessary. to assist in the garrisons of Cadiz, Carthagena, Ceuta, and Minorca, during the war. We hope the Treaty will now be laid bn the t § > b% of the two Houses of Parliament. This Comfhander of the British Squadron in the Adriatic, has been engaged in a negocia- tion with the Russian Admiral at Trieste. By a letter from an Officer, dated off that port the 28th December, we understand that our propositions were to the following effect, namely— that the Russian fleet, which at the above date consisted of four ships of the line and two ( f 50 guns, should be dismantled, and laid up in Trieste ; that the guns, & c. should be landed, and to remain so until six months after the conclusion of peace between England and Russia.— The reasons urged for this concession on that part of the enemy, resulted from the injury which the town sus- tained in consequence of the rigorous blockade to which the presence of the Russian fleet ex- posed it, and further to the damage it would necessarily suffer from the further operation, which, in the event of refusal, our Com- mander would consider himself obliged to undertake. Wanted, A YOUTH of respectable Connections, as an ARPRENTICE to a GROCER and TEA DEALER.— Enquire of Mr. B. CARTER, Grocer, Market Place, Leicester. Leicester,. 10th Feb. 1809. Archdukes Charles and Maximilian. Jablun- ka is in Teschen, and commands the pass in the mountains leading to Hungary. The desertion in the Bavarian army is so great, that the Government has found it ne- cessary to declare that all deserters shall be shot if taken, and all persons assisting or har- bouring them are to suffer two years imprison- ment in irons, and the confiscation of their property. Some modification of tile French Decree of September, which prohibited the introduction of colonial produce from Holland, appears to have taken place, an official notice having been published at Antwerp declaring that colonial produce would be admitted there from Holland, if furnished with the previously- pre- scribed certificates of the origin. The French Consul at Rotterdam had given notice to the same effect, but we are unable to ascertain tile date of these notices. A project of a new Law is before the Dutch Legislative Body, for preventing smuggling with England/ the penalties heretofore in- flicted being insufficient. It is now proposed to punish the first offence with confiscation of propel ty:— The second, with death. Asker Khan, the Persian Ambassador in France, is to return to Teheran early in the spring, and is to be succeeded by the present Governor of Toris. The French General Gardaune, Minister to the Shah, is represent- ed as having obtained great influence over that Sovereign. During the time the Persian Court was encamped at Sultaula, Gardanne • was lodged in an Imperial tent, with a guard of honour. The English Mission, it is added, liad wholly failed in its endevours to inflapnce the Emperor.— We have the satisfaction, how ever, to know, through more authentic chan- nels, that the Emperor is exceedingly averse to the idea of entering into a war, and has de- clared his desire to cultivate peace with us. Dutch Papers to the 8th, containing ex- tracts from Paris Journals to the 2d inst. have been received; by which it appears, that Bonaparte has actually returned to Paris; but We are not able to learn when he arrived there, nor is any mention made of the Coronation of bis brother Joseph, as had been reported, though the people of Madrid are represented as very anxious for that event taking place, for which preparations are making. The Madrid Gazette of the 22d of Januafy, contained an annunciation that the Emperor bad sworn the destruction of Saragossa; but that the mercy and humanity which charac- terize him, had induced him once more to summon it to surrender. In case of its further refusal to submit, it would be devoted to perdi- tion, being the only part of Spain which conti- nued in a state of insurrection, he being muster of all the other provinces. There are no Bulletins of the army in the It is confidently stated in the Spanish Papers, that an extensive desertion has taken place amongst the Italian, Swiss, and German troops, in the French service. Nearly half of the Saxon troops, it is said, have deserted to the Patriots, and that the contingent of the Prince of Reuss, amounting to 250 men, went over to the Spaniards, with their colours, and three of their officers. Some entire companies of Swiss troops, and upwards of 1500 Italians, are represented to htve done the same. A Gibraltar paper of a late date, states as follows :—" All the artillery belonging to the Garrison, with 500 infantry, have been employed these three days in the Spanish lines in shipping off all the guns and warlike stores in the different forts and batteries, for the purpose of sending them to Tarragona and Valentia, where they are much want- ed, and for which transports are now fitting out here: and we understand, that, all the ordnance and stores at Algesiras, and round the neighbouring coast are in like manner to be shipped off, where they may be more actively employed; " This measure has diffused the most uni- versal satisfaction throughout the garrison, and is a strong proof of the liberal and en- lightened policy of the Spanish Government towards us, as they seem anxious to remove every means by which the place could be annoyed in future, in case any reverse of fortune should take place in Spain, which might enable the enemy to penetrate to this neighbourhood. , " The utmost enthusiasm still prevails < along the whole of the provinces on the coast of the Mediterranean, where every man ca- pable of working or fighting is daily employ- ed in the common cause ; and if furnished with arms, of which they are still much in want, it would hardly be possible to subdue them." * We have the pleasure to announce' the ar- rival at Cadiz of the San Justofrom Vera Cruz, with nine millions and a half of dollars, up- wards of two millions sterling. This is the richest cargo that has been sent from the Spanish settlements to the Parent State, and is one- fifth of the total annual supply from those countries in times of peace and prosperity. About seven millions of dollars belong to the Government. The rest is private pMperty ; but we imagine the whole will, for the present, be applied by the Junta to the public use. The Expedition under General Mackenzie, which our last letters from Lisbon stated to be ready for sea, actually sailed on the lstinst. This intelligence has been received by the ship William, Capt. Ilolman, which arrived at Liverpool on Tuesday last, in twelve days from Lisbon. The transports sailed under the convoy of a frigate, and the destination of the Expedition is understood to be Cadiz. The remainder of the British troops in Portugal were preparing for embarkation, and it was believed that the whole would be removed as soon as possible to the South of Spain. French Papers, and not much is saiif" 0t its progress towards the South of Spain. ' i lie capitulation of the City of Corunna was signed on the 19th ult. by Marshal Soult and the Governor De Alzedo. The articles are thirteen in number, but they do not con- tain any feature of importance. The terms are rather lenient. An amnesty has been granted to all the inhabitants, even to those who held official « ituations; military and marine officers are allowed to retain their rank, on taking the oath of allegiance to King Joseph. Those who refuse to take that oath are to b considered as prisoners of war. Yesterday were received accounts from the Eastern coast of Spain, to the 30th ult. by the Intrepid, Capt. Hewison, which on Friday arrived in Standgate Creek, from Alicant. The intelligence by this conveyance from Catalonia and Valencia, is of subsequent date to the advices lately received by way of Ca- diz, and is of a very agreeable complexion.— ' 1 he head quarters of the French army of the Duke de Rellune, were, on the 28th January, at San Clemeute— his advanced corps occu- pi » d the passes of Sifanta, and had constructed v orks to defend the bridge over the Jucaron Orders have l. eeu sent to Cork for the im- mediate sailing of the tiansports - comprising Gen. Shvrbrookc's expedition, which had sought shelter in that and the neighbouring ports during the late gales. The vessels which had put into Kinsale, Wa'erford, have all re- assembled at Cove. This expedition is to be followed by another, consisting of 4- or 5000 men, as soon as the transports, which are under orders to sail from Portsmouth the moment the wind per- mits, can make their passage to Cork to take the troops on board. Yesterday his Excellency Don Pedro Cevallos, and Suite, arrived in town from Portsmouth. Ilis Secretary has been in Lon- don some days. At the same time two Spa- nish Couriers, the bearers of dispatches to his Excellency, reached town. By the same vessel which brought them to England, Mi- nisters received dispatches from Mr. Frere; and it was whispered that the Treaty with the Junta of Seville w as formally ratified and ex- changed. It is said that MO arc to Le allowed Four or five flags of Truce wfere sent in during the correspondense which passed on. the occasion, and each time the Russian Ad- miral summoned a Counsel of War— the Rus- sian Consul resident at Trieste, was likewise invited to attend.— A refusal was, however, the result of their deliberations, and the Rus- sian ships were warped further up the harbour.' Yesterday, Letters and Papers were receiv- ed from Charleston by the Good Voyage, bound from that port to Cadiz, but put into Liverpool in consequence of receiving somfe damage. The Charleston Courier of the 6th ult. received by the above, contains a letter, from St. John's, Antigua, noticing the de- tention and arrival at that port of the American ship Maryland, of 22 guns and 40 men.— In the same paper, there is another article, stating, that Mr. Smith, Secretary to the Navy, had declared in his report that the sum of 2,602,949 dollars would be wanting in the ensuing year for the support of the navy; and that a special act of Congress was necessary for employing 284 additional midshipmen and 2000 seamen. There are at present lying in the harbour j of New York, 240 ships, 130 brigs, and 90 s- jhooners, making a total of 400 vessels.— The tonnage of the above amounts to 80,000' tons, and it would require to navigate them at least 4700 seamen. It may be added, that if the embargo were raised, there could not be found more than two seamen for each vessel, this useful class of men having deserted their own country to procure bread. One of the objects of the American Embar- go was to keep their seamen at home ; but we have been informed by a gentleman who lately left the United States, that the Chesapeake fri- gate, when ordered on a cruise, for the pur- pose of detecting the vessels that should break I the Embargo, was barely able, after trying at Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth, and New York, to obtain a sufficiency of men to carry her to sea. The Hornet, ordered on the same service, it was found unable to equip, and she is therefore, now lying useless in Charles- town. A belief is still encouraged in the city that a reconciliation of our differences with America is on the eve of adjustment. Mr. Oakely has not yet sailed for America; and it is now said that he will carry out such overtures as have already received the full approbation of Mr. Pinckney. Lord Granville in the House of Lords on Friday moved an Address to his Majesty, res- pecting the immediate revocation of the Or- ders in Council. The recent offer of the Ame- rican Government to remove the embargo against us, and to maintain it against France,- placed us, he contended; in a new situation with respect to the United States. His Lord- ship in a long and very able speech, stated the embarrassments that were felt in all bran- ches of our manufactures, in consequence of the interruption of our commercialintercouise with America. Earl Bathurst maintained, that these em- barrassments had been felt a year and a half antecedent to the embargo, and that they were j the result of the Non- Importation Act, and i not of that measure. He expressed his hopes that in the course of a short time, we should be able to draw from other sources those arti- cles of necessity of which we were deprived by the cessation of the intercourse with the Unit- ed States. I. ord Sidmouth censured the conduct ofMi- nisU- rs towards America, and approved of Lord Grenville's motion, though not of every part of the reasoning urged in support of it. Lord Melville justified the conduct of Go- vernment. In the further progress of the debate the motion was supported by Lords Auckland and Erskine, and opposed by the Lord Chancellor and the Earl of Liverpool. Lord Grenville then replied, find a division having taken place, the motion was negatived, by a majority ( proxies included) of IJ 5 to 70.

CInTrA CONVENTION, lord henry Petty tast night made his ' pro- Met km on this very important subject, took a very long Review of the Ministers so fur as their Expedition to Spain and condemnation of their plans . was the result of his Lordships which was able and perspicuous throughout. He exposed the futility of their military operations, by stating that they were totally devoid of common foresight and sagacity. his Motion Went to disapprove wholly ; of the Convention. Lord Castlereagh, in a very long and able speech, endeavoured to overturn the Noble Mover's argument's. he spoke with much confidence, he gave the strongest assurances, that, considering the various circumstances " which had occurred, Ministers were not cul- pable for the measures which had been adopt- ed; and, as a set off sneeringly recurred to the failure of the late Ministers' Expedition to the Dardanelles. His Lordship defended the policy of the Court of Inquiry. , Sir Arthur Wellesley delivered his senti- ments in a very manly manner. Although he in some degree approved of the Convention the time, as then requisite for our interest, yet he totally disapproved of the measures which had caused the necessity of it. Had the Victory which he was fortunate enough to have obtained been followed up by an imme- diate pursuit and attack of the enemy whilst retreating in confusion, Sir Arthur was per- fectly confident of success, consequently per- fectly certain such a Convention would have been avoided. By the delay which had taken place immediately afterthe Victory of Vimiera, the enemy had been afforded an opportunity of taking very strong positions, and had there- fore rendered the Conventional that time an act of necessity on our part. Sir Arthur con- demned the policy which had induced the institution of the Board of Inquiry instead of that of a Court Martial, and seriously hoped it would be the very last Board of the kind ever held in this country— a Board, against which he had every reason to complain ; be- cause, had he been brought toa Court Martial, he would have been most honourably acquit- ed. Sir Arthur, with much sensibility, re- gretted the dissatisfaction produced in his mind by the nature of such a Board as that now cen- sured by him, because he had been precluded from bringing forward such evidence as would have been more satisfactory to him en cer- tain points of honor— an advantage which he would have derived from a Court Mar- tial. These declarations made a powerful impression on all present. Mr. Canning condemned the whole of the Convention, as making concessions which ought not to have but lie vin- dicated the institution of the board of In- quiry as fit and proper. He opposed the Motion, as having for its object the censure of Ministers, to which he could not by any means give his assent. General Furguson said, that although from his rank he had not been consulted on the propriety or impropriety of the CoVention of cintra, yet he assured the House, that, had his opinion been asked, he would have * given such a measure his decided Negative 1L! mr. Bragge Bathurst, and all Lord Sid- mouth's Friends, supported the Motion. On a division, the numbers were— For the Motion .... 153 For. tin; Ministers . . . . 203 Majority . . 50 Rumours were immediately circulated that the present Ministers must resign, as no longer having the confidence of the house of Commons. Lists of New Administrations were even handed about. The Brunswick, f 7 4 guns, is in Yarmouth Roads in a very deplorable condi- tion, having lost her anchors, cables, and guns, and having exhausted her provisions and fuel. She comes last from the Baltic but the same causes which have reduced the ves- sel to so lamentable a state have disabled her from bringing any other intelligence than what respects the disasters of the season.— Our anxiety concerning the political state of Sweden and Russia remains ungratified.—' The Brpnswick has, for a considerable time, had no connection with the shore ; but we learn through this, as well as other channels, that the winter has been unusually severe in the Baltic. Much damage has been done ^ rnong the'- shipping, It appears by private letters from Holland, that the King of Denmark has been turning informer, and complained to the French and Dutch Governments of the evasions and viola- tion of the penal laws against commerce with Great Britain. He has represented that nu- merous vessels, laden in the ports of Russia, have been continually passing the Sound under Dutch colours, ^ uid furnished with Dutch clearances ; but these clearances, it is pre- tended, ate false, these vessels notoriously j rocet- tlitig from, and returning to England. In. answer to this information, the King of Denmark has been desired to administer jus- tice against the offenders) by seizing the hips, and imprisoning the crews which may all into his hands. It is now generally believed that the Ex- pednion against Martinique, the success of was confidently anticipated, has been for the present. The enemy, it apt tare, has. contrived to elude the vigilance of the British blockading squadron, and Urge reinforcements ol troops, as a quantities of provisions and . country almost cestitute of every article to the comfort and equipment of the men, and re- presenting the immediate necessity of his royal Highness being empowered to order the agents of each regiment to advance the captains of compa- nies such a sum, AS would enable them IO complete the non- commissioned officers and soldiers the ne- cessaries according to his Majesty's regulations, which would be repaid as soon as the same could be obtained in the usual manner from the soldiers, except in such cases where the loss of the whole of their baggage before the enemy should be proved, or to have been destroyed by order of the com- manding officerand that the Lords of the Trea- sury had sanctioned the measures proposed by his Royal Highness. In the Court of Common Pleas, on Saturday, Mr. Finnerty obtained a verdict, and one shilling damages, against Mr. Tipper, for publishing a li bel on the plaintiff, in The Satirist. It appeared the publication in question designated the . plaintiff " a scoundrel and a fool;" and in return, the Editor of the Magazine had been held up to notice as an object of comparison with Bill Soames, ' the pick pocket. By the verdict of the Jury, each par ' will be obliged to pay his own costs. u• LEICESTER ASSOCIATION, For the Prosecution of Felons, twO Cow Chains and Kings having been Stolen from the Shed in a Close belonging to Mr. Alderman Swinfen, Oil the Westward Side of the London Road, and opposite to the Old Conduit Close, in the Parish of St. Margaret, in Leicester, in the Morning of Wednesday the 15th of February In- stant; he hereby offers a Reward of ONE GUINEA, in Addition tothe Reward allowed by the above Asso- ciation, to any Person or Persons who will cauiet. ho Offender or Offenders to be brought to Justice.

Chairman ol the HOPE INSURANCE COMPANY. IN the present State of ihe Proposals, the whole Nature and extent of the Plan cannot, with Prudence, be made Public, but it is necessary lo mention, that the Risks of Insurance are the Deaths of Horses, Mares, Mules, Bulls, Oxen, Cows, and Sheep, occasioned by Disease or Accident ( Fire ex- cepted), subject to such Conditions and Restrictions as will in due Time be circuited throughout the Kingdom, by the means of Agents, who will be spee- dily appointed for the general Purposes' of the Com- pany. The Capital not to b « less than One Million of Pounds Sterling, and to be divided into Shares of Fillv Pounds each, part of which are intended to be reserved for Country Gentlemen, Owners, and Blee- ders of Cattle, Farmers, Graziers, and others, who mav be disposed to countenance the Undertaking. No Person to be allowed to subscribe for more than Forty Shares', nor less than Five Shares ; Pro- prietors of which are to have a Vote for every Five Shares in all Cases where ballot may be necessary. Five Pounds on each Share sha| l be paid when called for, and no more of the Capital will be requir- ed unless wanted ; and then only in proportion 1,0 the Claims which may arise by Losses. The Company to be under exclusive Manage- ment of 21 Directors, a President, w hereof the undersigned Gentlemen, marked , are to form a Part, and the Remainder shall be appointed by the Proprietary at large. The President to be appointed out of, and by the above- named Gentlemen, who, together with those to be appointed by the Proprietary, are to remain in Office four Years. No Director shall be qualified unless possessed of Twenty Shares; but the Directors shall have Power to appoint honorary Directors in different Parts of the Country, provided they are Proprietors The Species of Insurance proposed to be effected by the Company has been hitherto unknown in this Kingdom, and is presumed to be of the highest Im- portance, tendering more secure a Property. which tar exceeds all other in value, and whose Protection, therefore, is of the first Consequence. In short," when the Plan ( which has been matured by long Investiga- tion, and formed upon a Basis derived from Experi- ence and subsequent Calculations) becomes to be thoroughly understood by the Owners and Breeders of Cattle, it will be found to promise great Beneiit to the Agricultural Interest; and there is not the least Doubt that it will receive the Support which its Mag- nitude and Importance entitles it to. Such Persons as may be desirous of promoting the intended Establishment, by subscribing for Shares, are requested to address Letters ( Post- paid) to VV. R. II. Brown, Esq. at the City of London Tavern, Bi- shopsgate- street; and all such as are approved by the present Directors will have Notice of the Number of Shares allotted them, and of the Time of paying the Deposits; but preference will b(? given in all Cases, to Owners and Breeders of Cattle, Farmers, Graziers, and all others connected with or engaged in Agricultural pursuits, - The Deposits when called for will be required to be paid into the Hands of Messrs. Smith, Payne, and Smith, Bankers, Man- sion House- street; and Messrs. Hammersley and Co. Pall Mall ; and also into the Bank of such Places io the Country as the Directors shall appoint, for the Accommodation of those who reside at a Distance from London, preparatory to an Investment in the public Funds, in the Names of Trustee to be appoint- ed by the Directors. We, the undersigned, having had the Basis on which the foregoing Plan is founded submitted to us by Mr. Brown, and by a Gentleman of extensive In- formation on the Subject, as well as the private Cal- culations formed on it, which, in our Opinion, can- not, without Prejudice to the Company, be at pre- sent made known, do recommend the Plan as worthy of the Public, and particularly of those connected With the Agricultural Interests of the Country ; and we assure such Persons, that the Object iti view, and all its hearings and Consequences, particularly the Mode of preventing Frauds, which, upon the first Glance this Species of Insurance appeared to be open to, have been frequently discussed by us, at various Meetings, aud that it appears to us to be a Plan pos- sessed of peculiar Merit, and promises to be of great Advantage to a Proprietary as Well as to the . Empire at large. Under this Impression we have resolved to give it every Support in our Power. * W. R. H. Brown, Golden- lane Brewery * John Card, Devonshire- street, Portland- place J. J.

The Meeting was also attended by many Parish Officers and Heads of Societies, and a Proposal was made that tliey should be admitted to V" te. But it appeared that there was no existing Statute which gai'e them that authority ( tfieir Privilege being eou- fiued to the Recommendation of Patients), and that this Board was not Competent to make an alteration in the Statutes for that Purpose. It was then moved by C. L. Smith, Esq. anil second- ed by the Rev, T. Robinson, that the Parish Officers and Heads of Societies not being in their own right Governors of this House, should withdraw from this Meeting, and they immediately retired. The Rev. Mr Robinson then recommended Mr. John Flint, as Secretary to the Infirmary, iu the Place of John Throsby resigned, which was seconded by Robert Clarke, Esq. J. E. Carter, Esq. recommended Mr. Thomas Martin to the vacant Secretaryship, and was seconded by Mr. Price. On a Poll being taken, the Votes of the Governors appeared to be as follows For J. Flint, For T. Martin, ^ Mr. Flint was declared duly elected ; and it vis or- dered that should give satisfactory Security to the Governors, for the proper Discharge of his Duty, in the Amount of £ 200, and it was recommended that such Security should be required of every future Se- cretary. Ordered— That the Treasurer be requested t6 take legal Advice on the best Means of recovering from the late Secretary the Sums embezzled by him from the Lunatic Asylum, and of bringing him to Justice for liis Misconduct, the Governors Of the Leicester Infirmary. GENTLEMEN, Your proceedings this day, relative to the election of a Secretary, I confess, have not made the most favourable impression upon my mind, and I cannot but fear, that it will produce a similar effect upon many in the same situation. I am not indeed dissa- tisfied with the , person w ho is elected, for I confess had he first applied for my vote, I should, without hesitation, have promised him my support. It has, however, so fallen out, that my vote, with that of many others who were representatives of public bodies, would have been of n0 avail, since by your decision on this occasion, you cut off every claim to such a privilege : a privilege, I conceive, founded in equity ; and perfectly consistent with the benevolent design of this noble institution* It appears to me, that, to deny a number Of per- sons the privilege of voting for a Secretary, because they were only Representatives of public bodies, and not subscribers in their own proper persons, is both unjust and impolitic. Unjust, because it is the tity subscribed that gives a qualification to an individual to act as a Governor, and to recommend patients, and in the present case no more would be required, and of course such persons are equally eligible : and it is impolitic, because it is more thaii probable, that such Societies will in future withold their Subscrip- tions and Collections, if their just rights bedenied.— Whatever objections may be raised against Parish Officers, Churchwardens, or the Stewards of Friendly- Societies, also which have the same claim in point of equity ^ surely ill is most invidious, as well as unjust, to object because persons are Dissenters, and re- present Dissenting Congregations. Nor is itless illibe- ral and unmanly, not to say persecuting, to object to a Candidate for the Secretaryship, because he is not of the Established Religion ! However some may be disposed to undervalue the Dissenters, I believe if any of the Governors chuse to inquire of the Treasurer, or to examine the printed Annual Accounts, they will find several handsome Subscriptions, Donations, and Collections from that body. Amidst all the generosity, forbearance, and tameness of Dissenters, can they be so generous, for- bearing, and tame, as to continue to support even the most valuable institution under heaven, when the joint exertions of the lower classes among them are treated with neglect, and they arc not allowed to send a Representative to vote in so paltry a concern as the choice of a Secretary. Whatever may be the existing Rules of the Infir- mary in the present ease, which, by the bye, are too vague to determine in favor of the present measure, there can be little doubt with any reflecting mind, as to what is equitable. I trust, therefore, that this subject will be duly considered by every Gover- nor, and that, if the present Rules be insufficient to determine the point, a new Rule will be formed at the next General Board, by which the- Rights of the Representatives of Public Bodies of every description may beduly acknowledged, and their claims admitted. I have the honor to be, GENTLEMEN, Your most obedient Servant, A Friend to the Institution. Leicester, Feb. 16, 1809, To the Governors of the Leicester Infirmary.

The election of a representative for the Borough of Stamford is likely to be warmly contested. The candidates are Mr, Chaplin, eldest son of the Re- corder of that town and Mr. Oddy, of St. James's square.— the last contested election was in 1734. -- The right of voting is in the inhabitants who are householders, and the nUmber does not. much ex- ceed 500 — The tumAlt incidental t » an election ' commenced thereon Thursday. On Sunday evening, the 12th instant, was rung, by the Society of Coventry Youths. at St. Mi- chael's, in Coventry', a complete peal- of- grandsire Cators, containing 5219 changes in three hours and 58 minutes :— The above peal being the full extent of changes that can. be obtained with only four bells behind On , Coventry Youths rang, a new peal,, called the valentine, containing ' 5,075 chan- ges, in three hours . The advanced price of woollen. cloth is already generally known and generally felt. A coat which, a month ago, would have cost is now seven guineas I And the people of life country are to bo- that this exorbitant rise , is: the necessary result of an existing scarcity of superfine the Spanish wool, without which, it manu- factured. The consequence of this increase of price has been., that the metropolis alone, five thousand . journeymen Tailors were thrown out of employment. , Five thousand more, it is computed, will this week be discharged ; and it can by tio means be an exaggerated statement, that in Great Britain 20,000 families will be thus reduced to Wretchedness and famine ; for, certaihly, no man who can possibly avoid it, will order cloaths while they continue at such ' a price. This evil, were it a matter of necessity', should be quiescently submitted to... But the scircity complained . of is a false and artificial scarcity., There is in the country neither a deficiency of wool nor of cloth. There are, however, men sufficiency rich, selfish and profligate to create both. When the British army, Was compelled to aban- don Spain, the Factors of Blackwell Hall naturally concluded that all the ports of that country would very soon be closed against the British Flag. When- ever this should take place, they judged that all Commerce between the two countries must termi- nate ; and that of course, Spanish Wool would no longer be attainable. " Make hay while the sun shines," is the ' command of wisdom • and these gentlemen', accordingly, determined to recompense themselves with the wool and cloth, now in the country, for the defalcation in their fut. ure revenues, that the loss of this lucrative branch of trade would probably occasion. In pursuance of this laudable resolution, they began with buying up, at an in- creased price} whatever quantities of these commo- dities they could procure.. ' They applied to the Merchant Taylors, and offered them at once an advance of sis shillings per yard on such clothS at they might have on. hand ; and having thus engros- Majority 28 Disorders of the Head, Dimness of Sight, Defect of Hearing, .

Mr Richard Thorn, of Itchen- Stoke, Hants, writes, in Febru ary, 1805, to the Proprietors as follows : " I am now 74 Years old, and can see to read with common Glasses, and my Memory is as good as when I was only 18. In July 1776 ( 29 Years ago), I was seized with a dreadful Giddiness in my Head.— My Doctor gave me various Medicines : they did no good. He admitted this, and Candidly advised the Use of your Cephalic Snuff.

RUmours of Hostilities between Austria ami France were yesterday prevalent, and that such an event was the cause of Bona- parte's sudden return to Paris. However much we doubt the truth of this report, it is our duty to notice it. The Lady Frances has arrived at Harwich, frotn Heligoland, in five days. She brings intelligehce that it was very generally rumoured oh the C « jiti' nent, that a rupture between France and Austria was inevitable. Bonaparte it ap- pears, did not remain long' in Paris after his return from Spain, but set out for Ger- many almost immediately. Papers and letters from the United States to the 29tli ult. have been received. The new Embargo Laws were in force at that period, and acted upon with the strictest rigour. The Henry, Harman, belonging t « Liverpool, that arrived at that place on Sun- day, has brought this intelligence. The Investigation before the House of Commons has so completely superseded evety other subject, that no one asks a question about the operations of the war-, or the movements and ihtentioos of the enemy. The Duke of York has beat Bona- parte out of the field— and Mrs. Clarke has almost obliterated from the public mind all Conti- nental considerations. It has happened however tbat during the time this investigation has been going on, no operations of great importance have taken place in Spain or any other part of Europe ; the principal occurrences will be found in our pre- ceding columns. Whilst we carefully abstain frorti offering any opinion respecting either the validity or fallacy of the charges exhibited in the house of Commons against a certain illustrious Military Cha- racter, we cannot but sincerely deplore the moral turpitude, mental depravity, and total absence of common decency, which the investigstion of those charges has developed to an astonished nation. That such glaring examples of voluptuous adultery and dissipation should emanate from so high a source, is a truly melancholy and most alarming circumstance. Can it be wondered at that the lower classes of the community should indulge in the excess of prostis' tution, debauchery, and every species Of vice, When the most immoral examples are", daily held out to them by elevated rank ?— The mischief that may hence arise is incalculable. Every person of prin- ciple must feel and lament that such pernicious and dangerous lessons are openly inculcated, and widely disseminated. Sufficient evidence has. al- ready been adduced to prove that an illicit connexion has long existed between the exalted personage' alluded to; and an abandoned courtezan— enough to establish a Wanton pollution of the connubial bed — a criminal and lustful intercourse. The Ignorant it is well known, are too prone to imitate the vices of their superiors, ahd to extenuate their mis conduct by the pattern shewn them. When harlots are enabled to revel in luxury, and suffered to in- fluence the conduct of those who ought to govern with purity, prudence, and ceconomy, the people may naturally be expected 10 devia. e from the paths of morality, and imbibe a contempt of their governors. We hope, most ardently hope, the investigation of this disgraceful business may pro- duce its due effect, and open the eyes of the dis- tinguished individual implicated, to a sense of the duty he owes to his own dignified station, to morality, and to his country. Henry Bromley, of Abberley, Esq. is appointed high Sherifi'of the County of' Worcester. ' The King has been pleased to appoint the Rev. Charles Talbot, Batchelor in Divinity, to the Deanry of Satum, void by the death of Doctor John Ekins, late Dean thereof. The Rev.

Mr. Robinson. sed the article it only remained for them to it whatever price they thought proper. As if to feel the public pulse, the increase was made, n'b. all st once,, but by degrees, and at successive meets, ings. At first they advanced the price only by i | few shillings,— then by a few more ; and the con- clusion is, that for wool, which was sold at six shillings, they now exact six- and- twenty shillings per pound. Cloth of course, is proportionably raised. Immense quantities of cotton have arrived at Liverpool from America Great quantities of cotton have also arrived. from the Brazils and the West Indies. In consequence of the above ar- rivals, the price of cotton has experienced a con- siderable reduction during the present week- Caution.— On Saturday last, Thurman, of Atherstone, malster, was convicted before Francis Newdigate, Esq. and the Rev.

SIR, voluntarily undertaken to address myself to the freeholders of Great Britain, respecting what is necessary and useful at the present artful crisis.— And to point out those duties which are indispensIHe, men and Englishmen they feel at all desirons to vindicate their intellectual, moral, and political cha- racter, to God, themselves, and their country. It will be necessary for me to proceed cautiously, step by step, on such ground as may appear teualile and de- fensible. A task, you must allow, more suited to the strong herculean mind of a Demosthenes or Tully, than the feeble arm of a solitary individual. They, like ano- ther Hercules, might rid the world of tyrants and monsters; but by what means shall I be able to cleanse this angean stable or scour the filth from our Commonwealth, in order to restore it to its pristine state ? When I speak of a Commonwealth, Sir, I wish the word to understood in every possible sense but that of a Republic. No, onr government is not Re- publican, but is, if the phrase may be admissible, a Monarchical Commonwealth. Thi duty I shall first treat of, * is that we owe to Cod us the author of our existence, the- mcans of our duration, and the final disposer of our being. Con- cerning which religious duty I shall presume no fur- ther than to state, that man, as a responsible civature, ought always to be ready, to render unto his Creator a just account uf those" talents with which he hath been pleased to entrust him. Now God hath im- planted in onr nature an intellectual capacity. He hath granted us also a free will to choose or reject. He hath placed before ns'a code of moral and prohi- bitory laws, as the rule of our conduct, and the test of our obedience, lie hath subjected all earthly things to thecontronl of our reason. These, we must allow, are very high and distinguishing privileges, and for the use or abuse of which, we are jusiy an- swerable. This responsibility, in which all men stand to their Creator, applies to every state of the creature, as far as the indications of God's holy will dwells on their mind. But for men, like ourselves, baptised and initiated into the sacred gospel of truth and revelation, obedi- ence , and our responsibility altogether strengthened. Thus far with respect to our duty to God. Now let us take a view of man as a social or moral agent, in a state of society. For, as to speak- ing of him or his rights, as in a state of rude nature, they scarcely, if any where exist, not even in the al- most inaccessible wilds of Lapland, Africa, or Ame- rica. Every man therefore born into the world is a mem- ber of that state or society where he first makes his appearance ; and his natural rights, of course, give place to the established ones of the country which nurtures and protects him. These rights are all de- fined, guaranteed, and established by laws, formed » u the wisdom, and rendered permanent hy the suf- frages of former generations Hence they become rules for our moral dnty, as members of society, in the same < Iegre< j, as the former which I hefore enumerat- ed, are of'our religions, to express our gratitude to God. l aws then are equally binding on the conduct of the prince as on that of the peasant , And the sum of , when taken collectively, is, what is general- ly termed, the constitution of a country. That is, the rule or mode by w hich all the parts of a govern- ment are kept in a sound state, and rendered condu- cive to the general interest of the Commonwealth,— ' Of this hereafter.

For Coughs, Consumption PECTORAL ESSENCE OF COLTSFOOT. Herb Coltsfoot, called Tussilago by the Ancients, was distinguished by them, as its Name sufficiently conveys for its Excellence in the Cure of Coughs, and other pulmonary Complaints; and this Essence has, in the Course of a long Practice been found the most safe and effectual Remedy for J Coughs, Asthmas, and all Disorders of the Lungs. It ! gently opens the Breast, and immediately gives I. i- ; berty of Breathing, without any danger of taking cold. It admirably allays the Tickling which provokes | frequent Coughs, cleanses the small Glands, relaxes ! the Fibres, and thereby enlarges the Cavities of the j Vessels. Thus it will prevent Consumptions, if taken I before the Lungs are ulcerated. It cures also all husky and dry Coughs, heals rawness and soreness of the Breast, and gives Relief to those who, through Age or Infirmity, are deprived of Rest or Sleep. This Essence is prepared by James Ryan, Surgeon, in Bristol; and sold only by F.
