SOME French papers have been just received.-— Bonaparte is returned to Paris. He went to the Opera on the27th nit. where his entrance, accord- ing to the Gallic papers, occasioned a burst of en- thusiasm which expressed itself by the loudest shouts and acclamations. It is mentioned with exultation, that the con- scription for 1810 has been completed, hotonly without a murmur, but wilh every mark of'eager- ness and joy, throughout the French Empire. The late military operations in Spain seem to be con- sidered as decisive ofthe fate of the Spanish people. Tfie imperial guard was shortly expected in the capital. Saragossa continued to make so vigorous a resistance as to require, at the end of last month, the assembling of a very large army for its reduc- tion. A diplomatic communication has been opened by the new Sovereign ofthe Turkish Empire wilh the Austrian Government. Paris, January 27.—. The bombardment of Sa- ragossa began on the 12th. It is supposed that the town cannot long resist, being inclosed on all sides, and having but a small stock of provisions. The sale of the wool which has been taken in Spain began at Bayonne on the 16th. Falladolid, Jun. 25.— Numerouscoloturis of Eng- lish prisoners pa's daily through this ( own. The Prince of ISeufchatel takes a survey of them from time to time, and has distributed shoes among thern. The English officers and soldiers say, that from the day of their being overtaken, their relreat has been nothing but a precipitate flight. They have lost their ammunition, baggage, and all their horses. The Commander in Chief, Moore, is kil- led, and Sir David Baird dangerously wounded. Jour ships which were stopped by the French fire if b ^ e been taken. The British army is returned to England, and put to sea during a dreadful storm General Moore wasthe best land officer which they possessed. They have lost a great number of of- ficers, colonels, captains, and othcersof all ranks. Madrid, Jan. 16 — A report is just spread, that Jtis Majesty the Emperor aud King, affected by the submission of the Government and inhabitants of Madrid, has consented that our Sovereign, King Joseph I. max remain among us. We flatlet ourselves that his Nlajesty will soon make a solemn entry into the capital of his dominions. The city is making preparations to receive him in a splendid stile. Since the beginning of this month we enjoy perfect repose and good order, thanks to the va rious measures which have been taken for thai purpose. The gallant General Romana and his troops have taken possession of Bavomt, a sea- pori to the south- west df Vigo, from which our shipping may carry them off in safely, if found necessary. The '••>:• oisli Ambassador, Don Pedro Cevallos, lir. s taken up his residence in Clarges- stfret. W « ? understand that he has brought with him the speci- fic offer on the part of the ^ upreine Junta, to cede to us, during the war, Cadiz, Ceuta, and Minor- ca.— Globe. The specie latelv brought to Cadis, from Vera Cruz, on board the English frigates Diamond and Melpomene, amounts, according to an official ac- count published by authority, in the whole, to 3,301,832 piastres." We are assured that General Beresford is destin- ed to Lisbon, and th< J object of his expedition is to organize the Portuguese levy. Major- General Hill is also going out wilh five regiments. We do not know his destination. The Duke of Oldenburgh has entered into the Confederacy ofthe Rhine. Some papers ( French) affirm, that the Emperor of China, and all his family, have embraced the Roman Catholic religion. Sir David Baird was sufficiently recovered to be able to leave Portsmouth, on Friday, for London Bucharest. Dec. 17.— We have the following intelligence from Constantinople:— " As soon as the Janissaries found the body of Bai- ractar, thev tied a rope to his legs, and dragged him through the principal streets, a herald going before, and continually proclaiming that it was the body of Bairactar, until they reached the pa- lace of The Grand Seignior, where thej hung it up bv the legs, and left it to remain three days as a public spectacle. The King 6f Denmark has lately made repre- sentations to the French and Dutch Courts, thai In* has seen, with much concern, that many vessels laden- in Russian ports, with tar, hemp, & c. pass the Sound under English colours, bound for Eng- land, and that these vessels are chiefly Dutch, under foreign colours, ftfrnished with clearances irom Rotterdam. Amsterdam, & c. which clear- ances are false, and proved to be so bv the mas- ters and crews of vessels captured by the Danes. The Dutch Government, inconsequence, has de- sired that all such Captains who should be detain- ed by Danish cruizers, might be committed to prison. A Charleston paper of the 7th of January says —" The anniversary of the embargo was kept at Salem aud Beverly with every mark of sorrow adapted to the occasion. The colours of the ship- ping were displayed at half- mast, and minute guns were fired at North- bridge, to commemorate the death of commerce, upon the very spot where the march of a British regiment had been stopped dur- ing the war.— An Augusta Maine paper says, we hear that a number of women, a few days since, collected in a body at Castine, and wentlo the gaol and liberated several ofthe prisoners confined then for breaches of the embargo laws." It has already been stated, upon the authority of undoubted intelligence, that a commercial inter- course to a great extent was carrying on under the British flag with the French West India Islands. We are sorry to find that this disgraceful traffic has been of greater magnitude than was before supposed.— The following article on the subject is extracted from the Jamaica Uoyal Gazette of the 31st December last.—" A detection has recently been made of one of those infamous connivances at the schemes of the enemy, which we have had much reason to suspect the treachery of some base speculators have too long carried ou with impuni- ty, but we now trust they will be put an end to. The Galatea frigate, Capt. Sayer, while at St. Tho- mas's, in overhauling the schooner Enterprize, luglish, master, ( belonging to St. Lucia,) which had received convoy instructions to proceed with the homeward- bound fleet assembled there, detect- ed, in a barrel of fruit, a set of French papers, by which the whole cargo and property of the vessel appeared lo be enemy's, and actually intended tor France. According to the papers discovered, tlte schooner's cargo had been taken in at Martinique, and was the property of a French merchant named Second, who was on board, and entered as master of ( lie vessel on the French papers, according to which the vessel was called 1' Iphigenie; and in- tended lo proceed with the convov to the chops of the Channel, aud then skulk off for the neaiest French port." Melancholy Ship wreck.— The loss ofthe Thames smack, Captain Craiggy, of Dundee, on Ihe Nore Sand on the 8th instant has already been mentioned It was chiefly owing to Captain Craig^ y having mistaken the" Note Sand for the Middle Sand, though Captain Johnston, of Arbroath, wlm was a passenger on board, repeatedly endeavoured to con- vince him of his error. The other passengers were, a young lady, the daughter of a naval officer, three women and one man, domestics in the service of Lord Keith, and one or two men, who were not known lo those onboard. The vessel filled with water toftards the morning, ami the Captain and crew took to their boat and made off, notwith- standing every effort was used by Captain Johnston to induce them to take on board the female passen- gers. A detailed account which has been pub- lished of this lamentable event, states, that the boat left the ship, with Captain Craiggy and the crew, consisting of ten men, and two men passengers, among whom was Lord Keith's footman, who had two ribs broken by jumping into ( lie boat at the time of its quitting the ship. The unfortunate pas- sengers left behind were the four women, Captain Johnston, and a private soldier, who, to his credit be it mentioned, lost his passage in the boat, as did Captain Johnston, by his zeal to preserve the wo- mens' lives. The night was dark, and the sea was breaking over the vessel mast high ; but still the voices of thecrew in the boat were heard ; and again Captain Johnston implored them to return for the women, and leavo, him to his fate ! Tim answer was, thev bad no oars wilh them, and would return as soon as they could. It was in vain that Captain Johnston and the soldier pressed the women to em- brace the only means left to preserve their existence by exerting themselves to get up the shrouds.— i hey were benumbed with cold, and otherwise in a helpless situation. The moment Captain Johnston and the soldier went aloft, the three female do- mestics were washed overboard, and perished ; the voice of Ihe officer's daughter was heard on board about twenty minutes after, when it totally ceased. About eight o'clock next morning, the male pas', sengers were relieved from their precarious situa- tion, by a ship's boat passing near ( hem ; and Cap- tain Johnston declared, that, from the inclemency of the weather, and his benumbed faculties, he could not have survhed two hours longer. Thursd » v, a very melancholy accident happened at Brentford. As the Oxford post- coach was pas- ing ' through liiat p.' irv, tr>" < l. » or ol it flew open, -. hen a most affectionate and interesting little girl, about six \ ears old, second daughlerof Mr. Ko- berson, attorney, of Oxford, who was on her way to school, fell out, and the wheel going over her head, she was killed on the spot. Murder.— The following barbarous and shock- ing murder recently occurred in the vicinity of Ballibay, in the county ot Monaghan. The chil dren of two neighbouring farmers haying quarrel- ed, the father of the beaten paity, in revenge, chastised t lie other so severelythat he was threat- ened with legal prosecution by the parents. The affair was, however, compromised, upon the ag- gressor promising to pay 101. in compensation for the injury. With a view to fulfil this engagement, his wife, the following < iay, carried the produce of their little industry to market, when, in her absence, the husband, under some diabolical im- pulse, murdered two of his own children, ill a way too terrible to relate. It appears to nave been his desperate intention to butcher the remaining three of bis children ; but Ihe cries of the two sufferers alarmed Ihe rest and they fled. It is impossible to assign an\ motive for this rash and unnatural, deed, but the irritation and chagrin arising from the preceding circumstance. The uuiortunate perpetrator ha.-, we understand, delivered himself nto ( lie hands ol justice, and is at present in Mon- aghan jail. At the Old Bailey sessions, on Saturday, Mar- garet Grimes alias Batrington, ordered for execu- tion on Wednesday next, was put lo the bar, and pleaded, in stay of execution, that she was quick with child; upon which a jury of matrons were impannelled, who retired with the prisoner, and Mr. Box, assisted by a surgeon of eminence, who A ere also sworn. After being absent about 15 minutes, they returned a verdict, that she was not with child; whereupon the Rccorde'r, in a most solemn and pathetic manner, exhorted the pri- soner to make the best use in her power ol the short time allotted to her in this life. The unfortunate woman * MS taken from the bar in convulsions. Boringdon's Divorce Bill received the Hoyal As- sent on Tuesday fnorning, at ten o'clock ; and in the course of the day, the late Lady Boringdon was married lo Sir Arthur Paget, and is now Lady Augusta Paget. The Royal Cardigan militia have subscribed 1001. for the relief of our troops returned from Spain Harmon's Bankruptcy.

Eruptive humours fly before its pow M-; Pimples and freckles die within an b ur. MACDONALD, HUMBERT, and Co. solicit the patronage of the Nobility, Gentry, and the Public, to their preparation of this justly- celebrated article, and of which they flatter themselves they shall be deemed worthy, for two reasons ; first, because it will be found superior in efficacy, in remoying, with great facility, all cutaneous eruptions, pimples, blotches, & c. and se- condly, from the reduced prices at which it will be sold. To publish a long panegyric on a medicine so well known, for its surprising , effects hi all disorders incident to the skin, would be superfluous ; they, therefore, refrain front it, and entreat only an unbiassed trial. M. and. Co. dis- claim an invidious competion with Mr. D. and solemnly assure the public theirs is justly founded on his declining to fulfil with them those engagements he had seriously and voluntarily made, and of the nature of which any fair en- quirer may b^ informed.

" O blessed Health ! thou art above all gold and trea- sure ; it is thou whoenlargeSt the soul, - and opens all its powers to receive instruction and relish virtue. He that has thee has little more to wish for; and he that is so wretched a3 to want thee, wants every thing with ' heel" STERNE. It is notorious that various disorders of the human frame are brought on by dissipation in youth, and the gross violation of those rules whi. h prudence dictates tor the preservation of health, and laying a foundation for a long and happy life, with a firm and strong constitution.. The blessings of health are. no sooner lost than painful experience teaches the inestimable value of it, and the unhappy patient looks around, loo often, alas ! in vain, for the means of its recovery ! The Cordial Baim of Giiead is universally acknow- ledged to be peculiarly efficacious in all inward wastmgs, loss of appetite, indigestion, depression of spirits, trem- bling or shaking of the hands or limbs, obstina e coughs, shortness of breath, and consumptive habits. It thins the blood, eases the most violent pains in the head and sto- mach, aud promotes gentle perspiration. By the nobility aud gentry this medicine is much admired, being pleasant to t. he taste and smeli, gently astringing th: fibres of he stomach, and giving that proper tensity which a goc- d digestion requires. No'hing can be better adaokd to help and nourish the constitution after a nocturnal- de- bauch with wine. This coroiai is highly esteemed in the East and West Indies, for nourishing aid invigo'afn'. the nervous system, and acting as a general res', orati\ e < « n de- bilitated constitutions, arising from bilious compia;- its contracted in hot climates. Those who have the care and education of females, the studious as well as the seden- tary part of the community, should never be w ithout he Cordial Balm of Gilead, which removes diseases in the head, invigorates the mind, improves the memory, and enlivens the imagination. It is the most absolute remedy for such diseases as are attended with the following symptoms, namely— a great straitness of the breast with difficulty of breathing; vio- lent palpitations of the heart ; sudden flashes o'' heat in various parts of the body ; at other times a sense of cold as if water was poured on them ; flying pains in the arms and limbs, back and belly, resembling those occa- sioned by the gravei ; the pulse very variable, sometimes uncommonly slow, at other times very quick ; yawning, hiccough, frequent sighing, and a sense of suffocation, as from a ball or lump in the throat; alternate fits of cry- _ ing or convulsive laughing; thd. sleep unsound, and sel- dom refreshing, and the pa'. ient often troubled vvMh horrid dreams. Much has been said by interested individuals against medicines that are advertised ; but ihere is a \ ery important observation to be made respecting the Cordial Balm of Gilead, that unless its operation was gentle, safe, and effica- cious, it could not nave obtained the unexam- pled demand it has acquired ; tor, as it has rarely the great advantage of a persuasive advocate at th ear of the k patient, so nothing but his convic'ion of its virtues, by its salutary, effects, can induce perseverance, and yet rea- sonable perseverance is certainly most tequi- ue to enable even the happiest combination of ch\ micals and galeni- cals to root out chronic diseases, and i'estore lbs vaietudi uariaa to fceadifa. Til S DAY's POST. l. OXRON, WEDNESDAY, EEliRUARY 22. / fR. Adair, our Minister at Constantinople, has JVJL had an tfiidit nce of tiie Grand Seignior, and was most favourably received. The intelligence is given in letters from Gibraltar, dated the 27th tilt. The increase of Fiench privateers in the Channel is become a very alarmingsui> ject, of ctiositleralion. Thirty stout lugger privateers are tilled out at Ca- lais only, and many more al Boulogne, & c. The Lady Frances packet arrived \ esienlayat Harwich, in five days from Heligoland, with mails and passengers, who state thai a strong rumour ( if the renewal of hostilities between Austria and France prevails upon . the Continent', and that Bona- parte after his return L> Paris proceeded to Ger- man}, where he now is. There are letters from Holland lo the IOth, which make no mention of the above rumour, nor of Bo- naparte's departure from Paris, llis return lo Pa- ris, however, from Spain was sudden and unex- pected, and though he had realized his Ihreat of making us evacuate Spain, lie would hardly have { ell that country under the present ci; cumstances, bad not some event of importance have occuried which required his presence at Paris. King Joe lias recognized the national debt or pauer money of Spain; but the creditors are to lie paid bv bills upon his Majesty's possessions in the tivo AmericasI Saturday, the Intrepid, Hewlson, arrived from Alicant, after a short voyage of fourteen days.— But little information is communicated by this arri- val respecting the slate of affairs in Spain, south of the capital It appears that the Duke of Beilnno ( Marshal Victor) instead of proceeding towards ts! ramadura, has altered his route, and having traversed the whole province of New Castile fror. i West to eas!, has taken post at San Clenienle, a small town near the sources of the Guadiana, and 100 miles distant from his former situation.— The " Duke of Infantado has established his head quar- ters at Moya, on the borders of Valencia, commu- nicating with the army of Gen. Reding in Catalo- nia, and being, at the same time in a condition to support the army in La Mancha. In aid ot Sa- ragassa, and the province of Arfagnn in general, a considerable ( orce was collecting at Balbasti: o, a to n seated on the river Cinca, about 60 miles north- east of, Saragossa. Linens fell on Jan. 24tli, in Drogheda, from 2d. * o 3- td. per yard. Spangle yarn, which brought 20d. on Saturday week, sold at 15d. The fall is attributed to the arrivals'of flax- seed in Ireland. i lls Majesty has granted a pension of 1401. per annum to Mrs. Balderston, mother of Captain Bal- derston, who was inhumanly murdered by tlie Master's mateof lhe Parthian. The discovery of tile papers respecting Kennet, the bankrupt, and tht- Dukeof York, arose entirfly from an accidental conversation at a dinner parly, a few days ago, where Mr. Duff, in talking of 1 hat person's bankruptcy, " casually mentioned the pur- port of them, and one of the guests communicated the fact the next day to Lord Folkestone. Government, it is said, has agreed to make a loan to the Prince Regent of Portugal, of the sum of 6! i0,000l, The mode of repay menl is lo be by consignments of Brazil commodities to Portuguese agents here, ant! the produce when converted into money, is to be delivered over lo the Treasury.— The sum of 80,0001. had been advanced at the time of the departure of the Braganza family for the Western Continent. Thursday requisitions were handed about for signature's, to tltsiie the Sheriffs of Middlesex, and High Bailiff of Westminster, to convene a meeting, to take into consideration the necessity of ail im- mediate Parliamentary Reform. PARLIAMENT. Tn the House of Commons on Tuesday, Lord U. Petty brought forward a motion relative to the expedition lo Portugal. His speech was long, and is said to have made a deep impression on his au- ditors. He wjisexceedihgjy animated, eloquent, and argumentative; and received those warm cheers which ever accompanied the addresses of Messrs. 1' itt and Fox. 1 he principal topics whereon i: e dwelt were the want of concert in the planning of the enterprise, by the separate detachment of the forces; and the remarkable change in the Com- mander who was to guide them.—" It is entertain- ing to see the Noble Lord ( Ca • Vreagi;) recom- mending persotis so superseding each other to act together in harmony. The noble leader of the band puts ail his instruments out of tune, and then says, be pleased gentlemen to be harmonious.— ( A laugh). Let us compare the situation of Ge- neral Jtinol ; n June, with what it was in the Decem- ber following, when he was quelling insurrection in Spain, " and assisting to drive the British army to Corunna. What had intervened between July and December? A British expedition I British success! . British victory ! ( Hear, hear, from all parts of the House.) I hope, at least, that the result of the Vote this night will be to give some important in- struction to the country, and that those who have been attributing the failure of our expedition to other causes, will come to a distinct vote ; that they will inform the country, if tliey are of tlia! opinion ; that although the expedition was prpperly com- manded, yet it was convenient that the Commander should be changed ; that although it was proper there should be a large, yet that it was not incon- venient to have scarcely any cavalry ; that although it was proper lo have good artillery horses, yet it was no detriment to the service lo have horses that were wounded, lame, spavined, and cast off; that although it was necessary to have the most preci- c instructions given to the Commanders; yet it was no fault in his Majesty's Ministers to have abstained from giving any irtstructions at all." He then moved,— 1. That the convention concluded at Cintra, on the 30th of August, 1808, and the ma- ritime convention concluded oil" the Tagus on the 3d of September, 1808, appear to this House to have disappointed the hopes and expectations of the country.— 2-. ' I hat the causes and circum- stances which immediately led to the conclusion of those conventions, appear to this House, in a great measure, to have arisen from the misconduct and neglect of his Majesty's Ministers. Lord Castlereagh thought that the judgment which the country had passed upon this proceeding was hasty and precipitate. The Noble Lord would have had the British army landed at St. Andero, and thence marched to the Pyrenees, a journey of not less than one thousand live hundred miles, and ail this upon an opinion that the Pyrenees formed a kind of gateway, in which an inferior could obstruct the passage of a superior force. There was no such pass in the world. The Pyrenees, besides two lead- ing passages, had forty- three military passes. He moved the previous question. General Tarletrm, although in the habit of voting with the present'Mjnisters, felt himself bound to support the motion.— Sir Arthur Wetiesley defended the conduct of Government. He protested how- ever against " Courts of Inquiry?' and repeated llis opinion, that the French might have been annihi- lated had his counsel been taken.— Mr. Batburst supported the resolutions of Lord Henry Petty, and slid that no one of his arguments had been answer- ed. The previous question was then put upon Lord Henry Petty'* first resolution, and the House divided— Ayes 203— Noes 153. Majority for Mi- nisters 50. ' I he second resolution was negatived without a division. Adjourned at six o'clock. GLOCE3TER.

A VALUABLE IjlSCi. Srk,. ROYAL BRITISH ARCANUtM, for Cleans. ing, beautifying, and preserving the HAIR. Pairc- nized by several illustrious branches of tiie Royal Famiiv. Amongst the various compositions at present recommend- ed for removing external iiuperfecti.- ns, inoie fall slinrt of producing the desired effect as those designer! for cleans- ing, beautifying, and preserving the Hair. VJ. ions nily and other substances have of late, it is true, been recom- mended to the public for that purpise; but a very slight investigation of their properties will convince an enlightened mind hotv inefficient those articles are, and that tbev literal- ly accelerate those evils they are reeomended to reniore. It is a maxim wisely urged by medical men, not lo near or use any thing which may obstruct perspiration—( he matter of insensible perspiration being a tine subtle fluid that exhales from all parts of the body in the form of va- pour proceeding from vessels, which lie obliquely under the scales of the scarf skin, and are so inconceivably small, that, from a calculation made by Lewenhoeke, one hund- red and twenty five thousand of tliem may be covered by a single grain of sand. The deduction we mean lo draw from this hypsthesis is, that all oleaginoui applications, under whatever form applied to the hair, must prove in- jurious, inasmuch as if forms a coaling on the surface of the skin, and thereby preve nts the escape of the perspirable matter so essential to the health. Hence arise heaviness torpor, giddiness, pains of the head, r. nd dimness of sight — nils, all of them the effect of the above cause, anil which will be effectually removed by Ihe use of the Arca- num, now offered lo a discerning public by the Propri- etors, Macdmuhl ^ Co. who, perceiving the various evils which are the effect of oils applications to the hair, have taken cosisid r. bie pains to find out an article which should possess all ti e dualities ofcleansiug, beantif ing, and pre- setting il ; and i" st* n'i of closih" ,>. .,,). and thereby effecting those evils which result from Ihe use of such applications, it should gently asist the escape of perspirable matter, keeping the Head free from all tlio. e complaints which are the i- ff'ct of its obstruction. Provi- dentially for the heads of tho isamls, they have discovered this inviouaole composition, lire Arcannm, which is en- tirely lie produce of a vegetable. distiilalion, is perfectly innocent in its nature and properlie-, ai C m c b » used with equal advantage from the Infant to Ihe At, ul . remov- ing with the great! < t celerity all oily and greas., s ibstances imbibed by the hair, cleansing the head from sea f, dander, and other impurities, and by rendering it clear from all secreted matter, will literally be found lo preserve, if not improve, the memory, ( as many individuals have testi- fies', who, as the Proprietors' friends, have been in tha habit of using it for sometime.) It is presumed, ( hat, af- ter what has been said on the virtues of this Article, cverv person desirous of'lie Ornament ot a Fine Head of Hair, will give it a fair, t. ial; and if once used, the Proprietors feel confident that if will never be neglected. It is particu- larly r.- commended to Ladies and Gentlemen who keep Boardi g Senin. uies. k N. H. Merchants going to hot climates will find thU Article deserving their attention.

A Lisbon mail arrived this morning, with letters' and pane > the 16' ii insl. Attempts, it appears have t- ide to Know that capital into astate'of insurrection and revolutionary disorder ; and in the pjosecwtiou of rhi". plan, the British officers, civii and mi! i! ar\'; have been insulted Wid abused.

It is repottet! that the Duke of York has been advised lo catt for a trial before the House, ot' Peers. ' t his is the proper course, anil indeed, it floes, " ol seem to us that any other can be adopted. His lioval Highness should afso tender his resignation of the command of the ari « '••'. Previous to Lord Melville's trial his Lordship resigned the post of First Lord ofthe Admiralty .— Courier. ft appears from the Sth report of the committee of Military Inquiry, that the allowance for the table of the officers on guard, amounts to 2,1811. 8s. per annum. The table is tor 16 . persons, which makes the rale of the yearly expenditure for each, about 5741. The table was formerly maintained b- the pay of a certain number of men called outliers, whose" pav was stopped in consequence of their re- ceiving permission to work, but this practice was abolished in 1793. The sentence of divorce between the Rev. J, F. Tonynand AnrieTonyn, his late wife, for adultery with" the Rev.

The examination of evidence is at length closed : the minutes nil! be printed by Monday next, and the report of Ihe committee is to betaken into con- sideration on Thursday. Colonel Hamilton examined by Lord Milton.— Q. When did Cap tin Sanden inform you that he had cer- tain papers in his possession, and a note respecting the inquiry before the H use? A. He told me so the day he arrived from Spain.- Q. Did Captain Sanden tell yon he believed it foreed or genuine ? A. Certainly not; no such conversation took place. 0. When yon saw the note or scrap of paper, did you believe it was forged or genuine? A. in my opinion it was the hand writing of the Dake of York, and 1 did not think it was forged. ' Mrs. Clarke was then examined to the following effect:— By the Chancellor ofthe Exchequer.— Q. Has Mrs. Clarke brought the two notes that she mentioned ill her last examination? A. They are here. Q. Has '. Mrs. Clarke received any other notes than these from the Duke of York since her separation from his Royal Highness? A. More than fifty. Q. X> 0 you recollect Slaving received a note to that effect? ( The copy of a note was shewn to her.) A. Possibly I might, possibly 1 might not, I know his Highness wrote another note t> y Greenwood, which I burned. On the motjon of Mr. C. Adams, that part of the former minutes of evidence was read, in which Mrs. Clarke had stated her having pinned up at the head of her bed a list of the friends whom she wished to be promoted, and which list the Duke of York took down. By Mr. C. Adams.— Q. Does the witness abide by that'statement? A. Yes; I never pretended to make any other. Q. How long was that list so pinned up? A." His Royal Highness took it down tiie second morn- ing, drew " up the curtain, and read it. I afterwards saw it m his Royal Highness's pocket- hook; with teratches through several of the names of those who were promoted. Q. The witness has said, that the Fluke of York did not take it down till the second morning. Did it remain up during the whole of the intervening da. y? A. It did. Q. Was it seen by any other person than the Duke of York and Mrs. Clarke? A. I suppose it must have been seen by the maid servants who made the bed, but perhaps they could not read. Q. Is the witness quite sure that the Duke of York read the list? A. Quite sure; for lie afterwards made some observations on it. He assured me he would pro- mote every one of them by degrees. The two notes given in by Mrs, Clarke, were then read, tliey were as follows:— " Enclosed I send you the money which you wish to have for your journey." " I do not know what you mean. I never authorised any one to plague or distress you; you may therefore be at vonr ease on my account." By Mr. Thompson.— Q. Did the Duke of York, in what the witness crdls his love- letters, mix any tiling which related to military or ecclesiastical promotions? A. Hardly know how to answer that question. Q. Has not the witness stated that she has what she calls love- letters, from the Duke of York, iu W possession at present? A. Yes, I have, and some cfm/ friends have also. Q. Is any thing in those letters relative to miii- tary or ecclesiastical promotions? A. No. By Mr. Lockhart.- Q. Was any person present • when the witness looked over the papers which related to the subject of this inquiry? A. I never let any per- sor h ev- r niv paeers. Mr. Ellis examined by the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Q. vWiat are you? A. Master in the Merchant Taylors' School. Q. Do you know Mrs. Favourite ? A. Not by that name. Q. By what name do you know her? A. By that of Mrs. Farquhar. Q. Was she ever hi your service ? A. Yes. Mrs Favourite called lo the Bar and examined bv ( he Chancellor of the Exchequer. Q. To Mr. Ellis. Is that # e person you know bv the name of Farquhar ? A. Yes. Q. To Mrs. Favourite.— Is tliat the person you re presented as Ellis, a caipenter? A. Yes, I tlid so out of respect for his character; I had no other motive but respect for his family, in not wishing to have him brought lip from the pnlpit to the bar.—( A laugh:) Q. Where docs Mrs. Favourite's father live ? A. In his grave. ( A laugh. J Q. Where did he live? A. In Scotland. Several notes from the Duke to Mrs. Clarke - were read, relative to his inability to make her re- mittances, and to serve, however willing, Iter chil- t'lren. One from General Clavering to her, dated since the investigation, requested his name might be suppressed. . Mr. Lowton, a solicitor called in, by Sir 1. Turton. Q. I wish to know if the witness remem- bered being caiLed upon by Mr. Adam, and in- structed to make inquiries i elating to '. lie Duke of York? A. Yes.— Q. Witness will stale what pas- sed at the interview which lie had with General Clavering? A. In those interviews, his statements were of a very contradictory nature; and hearing I was at a coffee- house, he- came to me with a let- ter ready written, in which my name was made use ' of as I thought improperly.- Q. Did the witness ask if General Covering had offered any money to Mrs. Clarke, to procure him a promotion, through her influence with Ihe Duke of York?— A. He should I rave thought such a question ex- tremely impertinent. He never could imagine a General Officer would seek for promotion by such means.— Q. Did the witness question him gene- rally with respect lo his intercourse \ ulti Mrs. Clarke? A. ] ditl: and from a letter 1 saw, it up- peared to me that she was in the habit of gaining promotions. Mr, Greenwood by Mr. HuskV son. Q. Is that your writing? A. Yes.— Q, What is it ? A. . A copy* of a loiter from the Duke of York lo Mrs. Clarke, after his separation from her. The letter was as folio us:— " Yon must recollect tiie occasion when,' aboet seven months ago, 1 had to employ a solicitor to defend a suit upon your account. The result of the inquiries. then made into y oilr conduct - ere most Unfavourable to yon, and ^ circumstances ha. - since arisen to cou/ irm these impres- sions. I w as not rasli or mcomVierale in coming lo the - V/ trterrninatiou to part from you, anil l owe it to my own . character to persevere in ttiat resolution. An interview would be painful tn us both, and of no use to you.— I tWrctore decVmc il —— 1 Miss Taylor was re examined. Q. Does the witness re. coWct any conversation passing between the Duke of York and Mrs. Clarke on the subject of roihiafy promotion? A. Never, except that about Colonel French. Q. Is the witness certain no one was present at that conversation but the Duke of York, Mrs. Clarke, and herself} A. I am certain no one else was present. Q. Is the witness certain that ( u the conversation with his Royal Highness relating to Colonel French, Mrs. Clarke used the words, his behaviour is middling but not very well? A. I am. Slit: was asked whether she did not know that her mother had been lately in custody for debt ? She immediately burst into tears, and appealed to ilie House whether, she was compelled to answer? Affirmative being returned, she replied under the greatest agitation and distress that her mother had been in '• onftnement for two years. The pur- port ofthe question was to shew, that if her mother was in confinement for debt, her father being still alive, her mother could nol of course be the wife of her father; which Mr. Perceval felt confidant Miss Taylor had described her to be on her former evidence. The House felt much for lieras she was thus reduced to the painful necessity of declaring her own illegitimacy. Mr. C. W. Wynne how- ever, In referring to the printed minutes read that part of her evidence which she hat! given a few evenings before, by which it appeared that she had only said her father's name was Taylor, and that her mother's name was Taylor. With respect to her evidence Mr. Whitbtead and several members said, that she had shewn throughout much sensi- bility, and modesty, and there was no reason why her testimony should be doubted. Many Genera! Officers were examined as to the improvement of Ihe army under the Duke of York, and they all gave him the highest character in this respect. Sir James Pultney said there was a time when commissions and ranks were obtained entirely by purchase, and still more generally by favour, '' here were formerly officers who got the rank of Lieutenant- Colonel in two years; but since bis Royal Highness took the command, none had ob- tained tiie rank of Captain before they had served two years, and the rank of a Field Officer before four years' service had been performed. The dis- cipline has also improved. I recollect when it was a difficult lh'um to place six regiments ou the ground, so as to make them move in an uniform manner. , Mr. W. Wynne gave notice, that after the House had considered the report, lie would call their attention to a motion respecting General Wavering's evidence. Glocester, Saturday, Feb. 25. AS far as respects the examination of evidence, Parliament has concluded its inquiry into the con- duct of the Commander in Chief. What proceed- ing will follow is a matter of much speculation. Tiie measures taken in Lord Melville's case are considered by some as a probable precedent for the present occasion. On the bearing of the tes- timony against the Duke's public character, we ab- stain for the present from giving any opinion. In the meanwhile, we rejoice that the investigation lias taken place, and that it has been conducted in the lace of the world, rather than by a secret Com mittee. The latter mode would not have satisfac- torily answered the purpose of justice to the Duke's official character, nor have had that good effect we hope to see produced from the exposure of his private life. One strong expression of censure lias filled almost every tongue and every newspaper. He will be hardy indeed, whatever his rank, who will, after this exposition, exhibit establishments so aggravating to the feelings of the people at large as that of Glocester- place. It seems that the French have not yet re- taken Portugal. From this circumstance one would ar- gue that their employment in Spain is still suffi- cient for all their attention. No intelligence that appears correct has been lately received from the Patriots. Again it is rumoured that Austria has broken terms with Bonaparte. This seems lo us a most unlikely occurrence. The Uev. E. Gatehouse, fellow of Corpus Christ! College, Oxford, is instituted to the rectovv of North- Cberiton, void by the death of the Rev. S. Gatehouse. The King has presented the Rev. Clias. Talbot, B. D. to the deanery of Sarutn. Colonel Bromley, of Abherly Ixidge, is appointed Sheriff of the county of Worcester. On Saturday was married, by the Rev. Richard Davis, Mr. Benjamin Stable, of London, to Miss Lo- vett, of the T- ything, adjoining Worcester. Lately was married, nt Maisemore, near this city, Mr. Thos. Phelps, to Miss Elizabeth Vallender, both of that place. On Friday was married, Mr. E. Sydney, of the Crown inn, to Miss Giles, daughter of Mrs. Giles of the Red Lion inn, both of Newport, in this county. Lately died, Mr. Richard Pimm, Officer of Excise, of Minchinhampton, in this county. Last . veek died at Sodbury, after a few days'illness, Miss Williams, daughter of the Rev. Jos. Williams, late of Wickwar, in this county. The committee for erecting Hereford new market, haveoffered premiums of 30 and 20 guineas for the two best plans and estimates. On the eleventh instant, Miss Pryce, daughterof Sir O'Bryan Pryce, proprietor of the Castle Cary Bank, near Taunton, and of Alfred- place, Bedford- ' square, and her servant, were taken up in I'ore- strcet, London, by one Pugh a constable, for offering a one pound'note in pay ment: they were sent to the Compter onSaturduyevening, and no bail admitted. On Monday, at 12 o'clock, Lady Pryce, with her solicitor, and counsel, Mr. Head, attended the mayor, and they were discharged. 1 lie counsel made some severe remarks on the rash and violent conduct of the constable; and on the mistake made by his Lordship ; who in liis zeal to detect fradti- lent tanks, had, he said, attacked a regular house. Sir Edward's daughter is a beautiful child of 13 years old. Since the occurrence, Mr. Harrison, Sir Edward's solicitor, has served the mayor and constable with notice, that an action will be commenced against ( hem. It is necessary on such occasions, that previous notice should be given. ft is said that an association is about to be entered into by several thousands of the respectable inhabi- tants of the metropolis, to check the unnecessary rise in the price of clothes, by a resolution not to wear any woollen cloth but what is the genuine pro- duceo f the country. Commitmenlsto our County Gaol.— William Grif- fin, by John Browne, Esq. charged, on the oath of I homas Hathaway, of Guiting Power, with steal- ing a breast- plough, of the value of fire shillings, his property.— Henry Jones, by Thomas Mee, Esq. charged, on the oath of Hubert Mules and George Hipwood, on suspicion of having stolen a quan- tify of wool, consisting of two hundred weight, the property of the said Uobert Mules, Samuel Harnett, and Jonathan Worthington the younger, his co- partner, from out of a trow, called the Suc- cess, then lying in the River Severn, at the Flat.— William Taylor, by Martin Lucas, Esq. charged oil suspicion of stealing uiu; hen, of the value of lOd. the property of Wm. Hill, of the Leigh. The following is an extraordinary instance of pre- servation from imminent dinger :— Some masons were last week employed uf repairing a deep well at Malvern ; and on Wednesday, while one of them was standing on a ladder which was placed in it, ( being at that lime about 20 feet below the month) he found that the brick work of the well was giving wa y; he ascended the ladder as quickly as possible, but before he could get out, the buck work gave way, and every one near the place concurred that he must have, been immediately killed, it hap- pened, however, that two psrtso'l the work met in tailing, and abso\ ute\ y formed an arr.

Richard J Crawshay and Samuel Homl'rav, Iwps. and the ' Rev. George M. Maber. In Michaelmas Term ) last, an application was m ule to the Court of King's- ' Bench, and a rule nisi obtained by the Attorney- 1 General and Mr. Bevan, gmnndesi on the affidavits of Mr. Taitt, Mr. Goodrich,' and Mr. Williams, three magistrates of the county of Glamorgan, f. r leave to tile a criminal information against Mr. Crawshay, Mr. llomfray, and Mr. Maber, mag - slrates also of the said county, for impvopevW liv - ing a precept lo hold a meeting for ihe purpose cf granting ale licences for the Cpper Dmsi-. m of the Hund/ ed of Caerphilly, in that countv, when s precept had before been wue- A by Mt. Taitt, Mr. Goodrich, and Mr. Williams, appointing a mee'ing for granting ale licences within the same hundred, and imputing to Mr. Crawshav, and < Aher two gentlemen, interested and corrupt motives.— Ou Saturday last cause wag shewn by Mr. Garrow and Mr. Hall, agair^ t the rule, and Lord Fllenborough, Chief Justice, in giving judgment, expressed him- self in these terms •.•- That he had been looking for the two hours thru past for some criminal,' tv,' im- puted to the magistrates, against whom t' e had been granted, to grasp at, but he could find none; that from what passed in Ihe year 17S3 ( when il appeared that the hundred had tan, „ rated by consent into two divisions'), the parties had acted under an idea I hat this could be legally ( lone, ar. cl thai they had persuaded themselves ihev were correct and were justified on thisaccount in their conduct in the present instance. That with respect to the precept tliey had issued, it could not be con- sidered as being done in fraud; on lhe contrary, ( hey conceived " they were competent to do what they had done; anil that they had acted with a degree of courtesy towards Mr. Taitt and his as- sociates that became them, which had not drawn a similar line of conduct from Mr. Taitt. That as lo any interest that could be imputed to them, it was too ridiculous to comment upon ; they appeared to have acted throughout from a conviction that they were justified in doing what had been done by them, and there appeared no objection to the persons to whom new licences had been granted at the meet- ing which they held. Indeed, so far as to one of the innkeepers, it appeared that Mr. Taitt himself had even offered the man a licence if he would come to his " SHOP." Mr. Justice l. e Blanc con- curred in opinion with the Chief Justice, and con- cluded by observing, that the parlies applying for the rule had siated to the Court false grounds for the application, and that the rule would not have been granted if they had stated all the lasts in their knowledge, and that the least the Court could do was lo mark such conduct by discharging it, zvfth costs. The- other Judges concurring, the rule was accordingly discharged, with costs. CARMARTHEN SPRING CIRCUIT. SAMt'EL HEYWonD AMI JOHN BALGUY, ESQRS. Cardiganshire... Friday, Mar. 24, at Cardigan.

A,\ kw? « e came from the Lords, signifying that they bad ajreed to Campbell's Divorce Bill, on account of the adultejv with Mr. T. Sheridan. THK DUKE OF YORK. The House, on the motion of Lord Fulkstone, went into a'Committee of Inquiry on the conduct of the Duke of York. , lard Eo'listone,. before calling in the witness who bad the papers in possession, thought it. necessary; lo state the case. In 1304, the Duke of Work wished to ra: « e 70 or- 80,00( 1. bv way of annuity, through the means of Mr. Kennett, who bad been twice a bank- rupt, as an upholsterer, in Bong- street. During this wso.- iatiou, the Duke of York was anxiously em- ployed in concurrent negociat; on, in which or had applied to Mr. Pitt and Lord Camden, in order to procure a place in the East indies for Kennel. One of the letters would shew that the loan depended on the procuration oi tbe place. The Noble Lord in- ferred from thence, that bis Royal flighuess'. s recom- mendation proceeded from improper motives. Mr. Duff' was called and examined by . Lord Jy tc- slaur He stated that he was a solicitor: knew Ken- nctt, Who became a bankrupt in IS03, In consequence of which certain papers came into his possession, which ho now produced, and proved the hand writing of Mr. Keunett; that Kennctt was originally an upholsterer, but lately a toothc- aehe etirer, m Lin- coluV- lnn- Fieltis ; that lie had once been found guilty of consniring to defraud his creditors, for which he stood iu the piUory. His former bankruptcy took place in 1801. Mr. Chapman examined.— ft. Did the. witnses know of any p: . posal made to his Royal Highness by Ken- lit-. t, to acrvimoiorfate the Duke with the sum of 30 < v - 40,0001. j,,, way of annuity, on the terms of his Highness* personal security ?— A 1 did. The wit- westhen i stinced a letter from Lietit.- Col. Gordon, Dnk./ s Secretary, stating that his Royal Highness would appiv to Mr. Pitt on the subject of that Right Hon. Gentleman ' providing a situation for Mr. Iven- n* » . The Duke's letter stated also that the appli- cation to Mr. Pitt would be more effectual wefea letter written iu fivoiu of Keiujett to Mr. Pitt, by Sir H. Mann. The witness believed sucli a letter was writtfii by Sir Horace Matin, but he believed it had no effect, and of course'it host no relation to the pre- sent t& arge before the Committee. It appeared that Kenne. t wanted, for a friend, tiie situation of stoie- Icrep.- r at Surinam, as bis friend would run all the risk attending a hot. climate. Colonel Gordon waited on Mr. Pitt's Secretary, in the year IS04, on the sub- ject of Keiinett's being appointed stofe- keeper at Surinam, fly . iin- nau of bis Royal Highness. Mr. Pitt, however, refused tbe appointment of Kennett, saving it hats been disposed of, Keuuett, on learning this, applied to be made Collector of the Customs at Surinam, but in that he was likewise disappointed, notwithstanding a letter from his Poval Highness to Mr. Pitt in bis ferotir. It appeared that Kennett, being miMflj mortified. by these repeated disappoint, meat's, applied to Mr. Greenwood for . Mr. Adam's ad- dress. in Scotland. Rennet wished to write to that Gentleman on the subject; and in the letter he sent to Mr. Adam, he alluded, iu open terms, to the loan he was negociating for his Highness, as he wished, at all events, to get something in contemplation of that loan. Colonel Taylor was examined by Lord Folkstone. ft. Did the witness receive a letter from Kennett5 ( a copy of which bis Lordship shewed the Colonel,— A. The witness said he did, aud it was- mm ked 18. Colonel Taylor was tlieo asked whether his KOyal Highness paid anv attention to the application by Sir Horace Mann?—.- J. 1 d" not believe his Royal Highness did; for J told him Keiinett's character, and tiie punishment be bad undergone, and his Royal Highness desired me never to mention him, and gave orders that none of his applications should be attended to. Keunett repeatedly called upon me, saying he had to procure for his Highness the- advance of 30 or 40,0001. The witness apprized the Duke of York of that circumstance, and his Highness directed the offer to be left to the superiuter. dance of Mr. Adam. Tbe loan was dffered before the Duke ordered all Ken- nett's applications to be treated with disregard. Mr. G.- eenw ood was next examined. Kennett came frequently to his office, seemingly much enraged, and highly discontented. He gave him no encouragement, but treated him with silence. He said he was to sup- ply his Royal Highness with 30,0001. and that upon easy terms— his Royal Highness'.-; own security, and a situation abroad for a particular friend, lie stated tlie substance of the Conversation to the Duke of York, but it was, by his Royal Higlmess's desire, all referred to Mr. Adam. Mr. Hurdle laid before the Committee certain letters which he received through Mrs. Clarke, aud r. hich she had received, through Mr. Donovan, from certain officers, to obtain " promotion for them. Mrs. Clarke was then called ill, and asked if the letters delivered to the House were the same which sba delivered to Mr. Wardle and received from Mr. Donovan. She. did not recollect when she received them. She does not know whose hand- writing the letters were; Mr. Donovan told her the letters were thu band- writing ofthe officers whose letters the. v purported to be. She did not knoiv whether any of them were the hand- writing of Mr. Donovan. One of them was like his baud ; but she could not suppose that he would write letters with the signature of another person. One letter was the copy of another; the copy written bv Donovan.— Being asked which was the copy and which was the original ? She said that she would leave the lion. House to find out that. These were all the letters she put into Mr. Wardle's hands for the purpose of facilitating the negociation. Mr. Wardle told her he would facilitate the nego- ciation by getting the signatures of some Members of Parliament, but he made a different use of them. He was only laughing at her. There was no reason whatever assigned for tbe non- payment of the an- nuity by the Duke of York. Mr. LockUarl asked Mr. Wardle if Mrs. Clarke said true, that he promised to facilitate the negociation by ••• opuring the signatures of Members of Parliament ? _ Ir. Wardle replied, that he had repeatedly given an answer to that point— that he never had made a direct promise to Mrs, Clarke. The Chancellor of the Exchequer stated a circumstance relative to a note iu the possession of Capt. Huxley S. mden, purporting to be a note written by the Duke of York. Upon this note Capt. Sandenliad not in bis examination communicated any information to the House. The Chancellor of the Exchequer, therefore, suggested the necessity of re- examining hitn. Capt. Sandeu was then called in, and asked if he stated the particulars- he knew respecting Major To- nyn's promotion, lie said he did; that be did not know of his having kept back any important facts. He did not particularly recollect any arguments he used " to persuade Major Tonyn that his friend would accomplish the business, lie only said he ought to wait for a Gazette or two. Here Capt. S. repeated his former evidence, as to what passed at the inter- view between him and Mrs. Claike. He was asked if he was certain that nothing else had passed than what he bad stated in his evidence. He said he was not. Being asked if any thing passed about a note ? He answered, that Mrs. Clarke gave him a note, which he was to shew to Major ronyn; and the substance of it was, to request Major'Tonya to wait a little w hile. Tbe note appeared to be from Mrs. Clarke. He did not recollect vi bet her he ga\ e the note to Major Tonyn. He did not know whether the note was ill Mrs. Clarke's band- writing. He rather thought it was. He never told any body that " this note was in the hand. writing of the Duke of York. Witness knows Colonel Hamilton: he asked his advice how he should act iu this business, and related lo him what he stated now. He does not recollect having stated to Colonel Hamilton that the note was in the hand- writing of the Duke of York. 3. Did you not. per- mit Colonel Hamiitou to take a copy of this note ?— A. Not that I know of. On being pressed by Mr. Per- ceval, Capt. Sar. den at last admitted that Col. Ha- milton did take a copy of the note, but denied re- collecting w hether that was the note he shewed Major Tonyn. He was then asked where the note was ? he believed mislaid; he bad seen it six days ago, but did not kuow what was become of it. On being Asked- if lie had not been desired by Colonel Hamil- ton not to destroy that note, he answered he had, and that it was not destroyed. Mr. Whitbread then asked if he could produce the note?— A. If I can find it I will. He added, that be had t « o days ago searched iiis bureau carefully, but that no such note could be found. When asked by Sir S. Romilly why lie had several times denied that such a paper existed, he said it svas an Unpleasant circumstance, and he wished to have it forgotten. He could not say it was the Duke of York's hand- writing, having never seen it, nor Mrs. Clarke's, which be had sometimes seen. On the witness's examination being concluded, Mr. Per- ceval observed, that it would be necessary for the judgment of the House to be taken respecting the conduct of the witness; and for that purpose lie moved, that the Speaker do take the chair. The Speaker then put the question—" Whether the House I conceived the witness had been guilty of prevarication or not?" I> was unanimously carried in the affir- mative. There was then a general cry of " Newgate . Newgate !" but the Speaker said, although there were precedents of that nature, yet he thought it as well to commit the prisoner to the charge of the Sergeant at Arms, with strict charge that no one do have access to him: this was done, and his papers ordered lobe searched for the notes relative to Tonvn's business. At the request of Capt. Samlen, he was again brought to the bar, i- o consequence of his desire to explain, and spoke as follows:— " I most humbly hope that this Hon. House will excuse me; I had no intention to offend this Hon. House, and T hope the House will excuse my extra- ordinary difficulty. With respect to the note, it is not destroyed: ! " ran ceo and fetch it; it is at my chambers. The note was ( riven ine to shew Major Tonyn ; and to state to him that the promotion would not mi on unless he paid the money. I shewed him - the note, and he said that he would doit. It was gazetted, and 5001. paid to Mrs. Clarke. I dou t know who wrote the note." Mrs. Clarke was called next, and examined by the Oimrelhr of ihe Euheftcr. Have you any memory of having sent any written paper to Capt. Sanden'—-) No: I am almost positive 1 never sent him anv thing of the kind. S. Capt. Sanden then never had a note from von, purporting to be from the Duke of York }— A. Never; and if he has insinuated that he has, it is false, or most probably his own writing. 2. Why does the witness employ the term insinuate?-— A. Because I think that Capt. Sanden is ca able of anv thins. . . The Committee being kept for a full hour waiting the arrival of Captain Sanden, were at length relieved from their suspence by his arrival with the identical letter about which he prevaricated so much, together with a large bundle of Mrs. Clarke's letters, which were found in his burrau and bed- chamber. The letter in question was addressed to George Farquliar, Esq. and nearly as follows:—" I have just received your note, andTonyn's business shall remain as it is. ' God bless you !" No date. Tbe prisoner stated that he had no motive whatever for concealing this note, and he threw himself on the mercy of the Com- mittee, as he could say nothing in extenuation ofhis offetic-. He was asked whether be had ever seen Mrs. Claike write, and he said he had frequently, and added, that she was in the habit of writing in different hands. He never saw, to his recollection, the Duke of York write, and, therefore, could not say that the above letter was, or was not in bis Royal rlitrhness's hand- writing. Witness was ordered to withdraw, but to be still kept in custody. Mrs. Clarke was then called in and examined by the Chancellor cf ihe Exchequer. 2. Did you ever see that naper before? ( a letter was presented to hei).-^ A. Yes, [ did. 2. Whose hand- writing is it}— A. I believe the Duke of York's. 2. Does the witness always write the same hand?— A. I cannot say the hand- writing may not vary. I generally write in a hurry, which may occasion some variation. 2. Are witness's letters always written in her own* hand ?— A. They were sometime! written by my mot hep. I guided ' her hand in writing them. 2. Did your mother and vou both write the same letter?— A. My mother hofd ' the pen, and I guided her hand. 2. Is ( his the manner in which these papers were written? — A. I believe both of them were written so, at least one of them. 2. Did witness guide the hand of ber mother when tbe two bills were drav.- n ?— A. I am not quite positive. 1 can not exactly answer that question. Is it supposed I committed forsery ? 2. It is not the aim of'my question to draw • neb a confession from you. I only ask if you wrote both these notes ?— A. I am positive as to one of them, but I cannot say which. Had 1 imagined I had been doing wrong, I would have destroyed them. 2. Do they seem to you to be written by the same hand ?— A. The dif- ference, if any, may arise from one having been written quicker than " the other. 2. Does it make no difference in the writing, when you write yourself, and when you guide your mother's hand?— A. No material difference. 2. Does the witness see no difference in the indorsement of tbe one from the hand i 11 which theother is written ?— A. I think my mother's band may have been guided when both were writ- ten.— 2. Does the witness ever imitate the hand- writing of others ?—. 4. I do not know that I do. If I did, it would be for amusement, and not for any bad purpose. 2. Has witness never attempted it ?— A. I have, and very lately; when several of us were at play. 2. What " did witness write when she was thus imitating the bands of others?— A. It may have been to take down some men's hands. : 2. Has wit- ness ever imitated tbe hand- writing of the Duke of York ?— A. Yes, I can take off the hand- writing of his Royal Highness. 2. Whbn you attempted to imitate the hand- writing of tbe Duke, did you ima- gine you succeeded ?— A. Yes, I thought so, to a cer- tain degree. 2. Did witness ever learn to write in a certain way from Mr. Towne?— A. Yes; be made me make great proficiency in writing. I recollect he is a Jew. On the motion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the papers brought to the House by the messenger were referred to a select Committee. Mr. Wharton reported progress, when Mr. Perceval moved that the Speaker do issue liis warrant to com- mit Capt. Huxley Sanden to his Majesty's goal of Newgate, for gross contempt and prevarication in bis examination at the bar of that House. This motion was agreed to— nem. eon. The House then adjourned at half- past four in the moniing. FRIDAY.— Mr. leach brought up the report of the select Committee appointed to take into consideration certain letters, which stated that they thought the whole of the letters were relevant to the inquiry. Colonel Gordon was' called in, and examined on the subject of the hand- writing of the note which was in the possession of Captain Sanden, and delivered in to the Committee.— The, Colonel was of opinion that it was the Duke of York's band- waiting.— Colonel Browning was afterwards examined, and could not decide whether it was the Duke's writing or not.— Mr. Towne, velvet- painter, of Bond- street, was next examined by Mr. Perceval.— The witness is a Jew. 2. Do you recollect having heard Mrs. Clarke say any thing respecting hand- writing?— A. Yes, In the course of conversation she said she could forge the Duke of York's hand- writing ; that she had freqi « ntly done it. She did so then, having previously shown nie the Duke of York's name in his own band- writing, and I could not tell the difference afterwards between the forgery and the original. 2. What was your business with her at the time of this conversation?— A. I gave her a lesson that morning in the art of painting on velvet. ( A laugh. J 2. Did the obser- vation arise out of the subject before you ?— A. No, there was writing and some other papers on the table. 2. To whom did you communicate Mrs. Clarke's statement that she could imitate the Duke of York's hand- writing ?— A. To Lady Haggerston, in the course of conversation, as I was talking to her Ladyship about the Duke's affair. ( A bud laugh. J. MRS. CLARKE'S STIPEND.— The Chancellor of the Ex- chequer rose and said, that a question having been put to him some nights ago, by an Hon. Member behind him, with respect to what was the actual allowance given Mrs. Clarke,: by the Duke of York, for her maintenance : he had made it an object foahis special inquiry, and, the result of the information he l- eceiycd from his Royal Highness was, that having examined his banker's book, found that the actual sum advanced to that lady, by drafts, amounted to 3,5501. His Royal Highness, however, authorized him to'say that he had advanced her very large sums of money which he never took any account of, nor had he any document by which he could inform the House of the actual amount. There were, indepen- dent of this, large sums of money paid by his Royal Highness to Mrs. Clarke for house, furniture, plale, tkc. & c. provided for her, ivhich, together with the above- mentioned sum of 5,5501. amounted to 16,7511. Mrs. Clarke was then called to prove the hand- writing of several of her letters which wrere found on the last night among Capt. Saudeu's. A number of letters were then produced, which from No. 12 to No. 41 she admitted to be her own hand- writing, and No. 42 to be a piece of the Duke of York's letter which came from Dover, directed to George Farquhar, with the same seal which . was found in Sanden's bureau. Tne first letter read was signed M. A. C. dated Holies- street', July 2,1S03, and directed to Capt. Sanden. Then followed a number directed to Colonel Sauden, and signed M. A. C. generally without dates. In one she slates that she is con- vinced the money offered is too trifling, and desires him to tell Sneddon that she must have 2001. and from the Captains 301. more, aud that as an offer of 15,0001. has been made, she requests an immediate answer. She also urges him to influence any member to give bis vote on Pitt's motion. The next'was one without a signature, viz. " I will do it when his Royal Highness comes to town. The Duke of Cambridge has already got 4,0001. There is no difference ill their not. being Pro testants: it is nothing to him. I have told him of your proposals: be sure you go at half- past three, on Monday, to him, and put on a new pair of boots."— Another : To Colonel Sandon, signed M. A. C.—" Can vou get half a dozen persons who Want interest, as I ivaut' money most imperiously. I wish to infringe a little on Tommy Greenwood's rights."— Another, from the same to the same—" Pray do something. The Duke wishes you to got on faster with your men. He has written to him this morning. Be sure to send vie an exact account."— Another: " The Duke has not seen• General Tonyu or his son, and is fearful it will be done before he slops, otherwise he will stop it in the morning."— Aug. 10. 1808. From » lie same to the Same—" Tiie King and all the Family are coining to wait upon the Duke on his birth- day : they are full of compliment."— October 9, 1803. From the same to the same—" Do not come to me to my box to- night; Greenwood, with the two Dukes, will be there, watch- ing with bis wise eyes ; the sight of you may lead him to talk of the levy business io a manner that may prove hurtful both to ytiu and me." There were a few other letters read, which con- tained nothing important, as was also a par! of the Duke's letter directed to George Farquhar, with an impression of his private seal— the motto Jamais.— Capt. lluxlev Sanden was then ( nought in and exa- mined as to his motive of withholding the note which had been'the subject of inquiry. He expressed con- trition for what he bad done, but kcould assign no motive. Mr. . Wardle said be had no other evidence to produce. MONDAY.— The investigation of the charges against the Duke of York proceeded. General Clavei'mg was examined. The evidence given by him on a former night being read, it was observed to him— On a reference to the minutes of Ihe witness's former examination, he will find, that to a question put to him, whether he had any com- munication on thesubject of army promotions wi( h Mrs. Clarke, his answer was that he had not— How does the witness reconcile that reply with the letters to Mrs. Clarke which have since been laid before ( he House?— A. When the question which has just been mentioned was put to me, I was perfectly sa- tisfied by the teim " communication," personal in- tercourse and not epistolary correspondence was in- tended.— The Geneia! then went on to state- that, in IS05, lie wrote a Seder to Mrs. Clarke, offering her 10001. if she could get him permission to raise a regiment; she represented his request to the Duke of York, who would not hear of it, and scouted it; but though he was unsuccessful in ihis, be applied lo her again when he wanted to get some information from the War- Office, because, though he was satisfied that Mrs. Clarke had no in- fluence over the Duke of York, yet he thought he might allow her to talk on military subjects. After the General iiad been examined, Mr. W. Wynne moved, that General Clavering had been guilty of gross prevarication: but the Committee not being unanimous, after a short discussion, Ihe mo- tion was withdrawn, upon the understanding that he should be entitled at any future period to renew it.— Five persons from the Rank and Post Office were examined as lo their opinion ofthe note found at Capt. Sanden's lodgings. Three staled their be- lief that it was in the same hand- wriling as the two letters of the Duke of York from Sandgate and Weymouth : one was of a different opinion : and one was in doubt, arising from a comparison with the lelters of Mrs. Clarke's hand- writing.-— Mrs. Clarke's physician was examined, and declared her not to be well enough to attend. She would be well enough, however, in two days. The further investigation was therefore deferred. In the HOUSE of LORDS, on Friday, Lord Grenville moved an address to his Majesty, re-, specting the immediate revocation of the Orders in Council. The recent offer of the American 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 Slates. His Lordship, in a long and very able speech, slated the embarassmcnts that were felt in all branches of pur manufactures in conse- quence of the interruption of our commercial in- tercourse with America. Earl Batluirst maintained, that these embarassments had been felt a year and a half antecedent to the embargo, and lhat they were the result of Ihe Non- Importation Act, and not of that measure. He expressed his hopes ( hat, in the course of a short time, we should be able to draw from other sources those a'rlicles of necessity of which we were deprived by the ces- sation of the intercourse with the United States. Lord Melville justified the conduct of Govern- ment. 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 re- plied, and a division having taken place, the motion was negatived by a majority ( proxies in- cluded) of 115 to 70.— Adjourned at three o'clock. The Commander in Chief.— Whether it be true or false, that the office of Commander in Chief is to be put in Commission we know not; we hope it is: we are sure the country will not be satisfied with any other arrangement. Our naval affairs have been admirably administered since the office of Lord High Admiral has been put in Com- mission. Why should not our military be. equally well administered by a Board of General Officers ? — Courier. The father of Mrs. Clarke ( Mr. R. Farquhar) formerly resided in Oxford, and was employed at the Clarendon Printing Office as a compositor. In the Court of Common Council on Thursday, a report, was made from the committee appointed to inquire into the embarrassments of the city cham- ber, Irani which it appears that the annual ex- pences of several ofthe committees had been nearly trebled within 14 years; aud lhat in four com- mitteesonly, the anniia! expences amount to about 70001. chiefly for tavern bills and summer ex- cursions .' The report then recommends strict eco- nomy, as well as several retrenchments, as abso- lutely necessary to relieve the chamber from its jiresent embarrassments.— At the s taie Court it was resolved, on the motion of Mr. Waithman, that no member of the Court who holds any place or ap- pointment under Government, from which he de- rives an emolument, or who receives any income, salary, or allowance out of the public money, ex- cept members holding commissions in the London militia, shall be eligible to serve on any committee or commission in ihe appointment of tiie Com t. In the cause of Maw man, v. Gillet, the applica- tion of the latter for a new trial was last Monday re- fused, in the Court of Common Pleas. — In the same Court, oil Saturday, an action was tried, Mr. Pe- ter Finnertv against Mr. Tipper, publisher of a pe- riodical work entitled The Satirist, for a libel; when in consideration of some acts of provocation, the jury found a verdict for the plaintiff, damages one shilling.— Mr. I' innerly is the avowed editor of Major flogan's pamphlet. No less than 5000 journeymen tailors have been thrown out of employ inthe metropolis by the un- precedented advance on woollen cloth ; and 5000 more, it is computed," will be discharged this week. Tuesday . evening, about 8 o'clock, as John Lloyd, ef the Shambles, in Worcester, was walking home along the road, about two miles from thence, he was stopped by four men, who demanded his money, threatening his life if he did not deliver it. Re- sistance was in vain, and they robbed him of up- wards of six guineas, in notes ( and cash. By a mere accident, they did not lake a watch which he had about him. Three of the men were soldiers, two dressed in full regimentals, and armed with a pistol and abayrnet, and the other in his undress uniform ; the loutili man was dressed in a dark coat. The subscription for the relief of Ihe sufferers by the late tremendous flood, in Bath, amounts to upwards of 20001. The collection at the different churches and chapels, on the 29th tilt, amounted to 7- 841. 14- s. 4- § d. Such examples of charity and humanity hjjve seldom been equalled. The Mrs. Radcliffe, whose death was announced in our paper, was not ( he celebrated authoress of that name, but Ihe mother of the husband of lhat lady. A patent for a new principle of measuring time, and constructing clocks and chronometers, has lately betn obtained by Mr. Congreve, the inventor of the military rocket. The prominent feature of Ihis invention is, lhat the time measurer will indicate seconds, or any smaller division, and yet it will be absolutely detached from the maintaining power for a period of one or more minutes. A clock eon- structed on this principle requires only the sixtieth of the weight or power of a common clock ; or made with the same power, it will go GO times as long, (;'. e. 480 days.)
