WEDNESDAY'S POST. . LONDON, TUESDAY, MAY ' 22. IT is mentioned in several of tiie German papers, tliat the urrcar of contribution, imposed on the House of All tria, amounting to 25 millions of tlorins, lias been remitted ; and the Nene Zeitung^ contains • the following singular anecdote 011 the subject:— Before the Empress Louisa entered tl; e French fron- tiers, the Emperor sent her a plain gold snnff- box. Surprised at this present, so different from the earlier • nes she received, which were always more brilliant and valuable, she opened it, anil found an imperial receipt ic full for the 25 millions arrear of Austrian contribution- money, with a letter in his ow n hand- writing." The Empre- s forwarded the present to Vienna • with the following note:— " On the Frontiers. « Alt- ruWnsj PV> vidence also uiesses the Emperor niv father, and his faithful people. My tears fall on this paper— but they are pledges of my love and lidc- litv." At Antwerp, Bonaparte treated the Empress with the sight of the launch of an 30 gun- ship. The Bi- shop ofMaiines attended, presented the Imperial Pair • with holy water, and pronounced a benediction 011 tlie new ship of the line. It is said that diamonds and pearls rose thirty per cent, last month at Leipzig, Brussels, Amsterdam, Ac. owing to the demand for them by the festivities at Paris. Tiie marriage of King Eerdinand with one of the nieces of Bonaparte is fully expected, and is the sub- ject ofgeneral conversation in Paris. The gentleman is returned from Pal is who was the bearer a short time ago of dispatches from Mr. Pinck- iicy. He has brought over with him a new French Decree relative to American commerce; the publi- cation of which has been as long in contemplation as the 13th March last, that being the period at which it is dated. This measure was suggested by the act of the American Legislature, who some time aso de- creed that all French and British ships entering the ports and waters of the United States should be liable to be sequestered, & c. This mode of evincing the impartiality of the American Government towards those of France and Great Britain, has drawn down the vengeance of Bonaparte, who has now ordered the condemnation of all American property wherever it may be found, that has or may arrive in any of the ports of France, or places to w hich her influence ex- tends; the proceeds to be pai 1 into the hands of the FrenchGovehimcnt, to be dealt with as circumstances may require. It is alsq stated that the same mea- sure lias been recommended to the Northern Pow ers. By the arrangement agreed 011 for the exchange of prisoners of war, sixteen French, it is said, are to be given for every nine British, till the whole are re- gularly exchanged; it having been ascertained that the number of the former in this country exceed? those of our countrymen in France in that proportion. The reduction of the Danish island of Bornholm, in the Baltic, it is understood, was the first object of the fleet unihr Si. J. Sanmarez; and from the state of its defences it is supposed by this time to have fallen an easy conquest. The Portuguese Government lias directed that, un- til a new order to the contrary, the exportation of wines from that kingdom be prohibited, except those which are of the Factory. A riimonr is afloat that the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer is to be rewarded by a peerage, after the prorogation of Parliament. Considerable difference of opinion prevails among the Court of Directors relative to the conduct adopted towards the late mutineers in India, particularly Major Boles. Some of them reprobate the general conduct of the Madras Government, and likewise of the Governor, to whose inflexibility they impute the late alarming occurrences in that country. The Nonpareil schooner, Lieut. J. Dickinson, on the 10th inst. captured, after a sharp action of one hour and three- quarters, off the river Vilaine, La Cannoniere French brig, of 3 long 12- pounders, and two 24- pound carronades, with 61 men.— GAZ. The Terrible, 74, Lord H. Poulet; and the Lavinia frigate, Lord William Stuart, arrived offPortsmouth, on Friday, with 60 sail under convoy, from the Medi- terranean. Our naval force in the West Indies is about to be reduced inconsequence of our late acquisitions in that quarter. A change among the Sea Lords, at the Board of Admiralty, will, it is said, take place immediately.— The arrival of Sir Joseph Yorke is daily expected from ilis ship tlie Christian VII. in Basque Roads, a Captain having sailed from Plymouth some days since, for the purpose of relieving him in the command of that vessel. It is also reported that some of the other members of the Admiralty Board w ill retire. A large supply of Colonel Congreve's rockets is to be sent without delay to Cadiz. A vessel is preparing for that purpose at Woolwich, and a detachment of artillery, with an officer, proceeds with them. A dreadful gale of wind from the south- east came on at Otschosk, in Siberia, at the latter end of Janu- ary, which lasted two days. The water of the Oelio- ta* which, after passing through the city, empties it- self into the sea, was elevated twelve feet above its ordinary level, and carried over the tops of the houses situated near its banks. The tempest coming on at night, between 2 and 300 of the inhabitants perished in" their sleep. A transport belonging to tile India Company, which a tempest had carried into the l iver in 1808, was raised by the waves, and forced into the town. At a Common II dl, which was held yesterday, it • was resolved once more to petition the House of Com- mons. Two incendiary letters, signed " by order of the in- jured volunteers," < SIC. have been addressed to the Marquis of Blandford, in Berkshire, threatening to take away his life, and likewise containing gross, scandalous, and indecent expressions. His Lordship has offered a reward of 2001. for the discovery of the of- fender or offenders. AnH. P. war rages at present with great violence in the Liverpool Theatre, in consequence of tiie ma- nagers having refused to admit half price. The dis- contented part of the audience have had recourse to tlie same means of annoyance which were made use of at Covent- Gtrden, and in consequence several of the H. P. champions have been escorted into con- finement, prisoners of war. Stone cylinders, pillars, & c. which were formerly cut out with much labour and waste by the cliissel, are now, by a new invention, formed out of the block a complete anil perfect cylinder, and thus from tile same stone several pipes of different sizes may be malic without the least waste. TO THE INDEPENDENT Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders, OF THE COUNTY OF GLOCESTER. GENTLEMEN, AVINGavowedly espouseJ the cruse of SIR EDWIN BAYNTUN SANDYS in the late Canvas for the County Election, I fee 1 it due to myself, and to the Cause, to address you on that subject. Never was a more glorious cause sacrificed from want of the means to carry it through with effect,— never was there a more favourable opportunity pre- sented to the Freeholders of emancipating themselves from the chains of aristrocratical influence, had they possessed the courage to stand forward and enrol their names under the banner of INDEPENDENCE ; but alas! they were not sufficiently alive to tlieir own Inte- rests, and suffered the fairest occasion to pass without cultivating it as the magnitude of the subject required. I am fully persuaded, that had any two or three other Towns in tlie County followed the example of the Towns of Stroud and Cheltenham, in raising a Fund to convey their Freeholders to Giocester, we should have had a great majority of votes.— The hearts and good wisiies of many hundred Freeholders were with us, who voluntarily offered their votes, but we were disabled ( by the machinations of theenemy) from bringing them to the Poll. In riding through various parts of the County, during the last week, I experi- enced high gratification to find so much virtue,— such a just sense of morality deeply rooted in the minds of the people, and manifested by their general sentiments, and warm expressions, on the character and eligibility of the. respective Candidates.. But the great Peers, who are Landholders in the County, with their predo- minant influence, overwhelmed our exertions in the cause of Freedom ! some personally canvassed the Free- holders, to vote for tiie noble Lord— others directed their agents and stewards to exert themselves for the same candidate. Gentlemen, you know that by the standing rules of the House of Commons, " No Lord of Parliament hath any right to interfere in the election ot Common- ers."— The Lords of the present day ( with regret I speak it) break down the barrier of distinction, and descend from their exalted situation in more respects than canvassing for an election. I would not be un- derstood to include in this general observation the , two noble Dukes who head the list of our Glocester- shire nobility; as I am assured their conduct, respect- ing the late election, was highly honourable and unin- fluenced— much less would I have it supposed that my principles are democratical. I respect nobility; I con- sider it" the Corinthian capital of polished society."— But let nobility respect itself; let the Peers, with dignity and propriety maintain that elevated station in which the constitution of the country has placed them. The Statute 23d Henry Vlth c. 14. expressly enacts, " That the Knights of the Shires for the Par- liament shall be notable Knights of the same Counties for the which they shall be chosen, or otherwise such notable Esquires, Gentlemen of birth of the same Counties, as shall be able to be Knights." That was the rank in life designed to furnish repre- sentatives of the Commons. The candidate, Sir Edwin Bayntun Sandys, is exactly of that description: a man of good extraction and ancient family in this County ; and ( as far as I can judge from a short acquaintance with him) a man, in every respect, qualified for a seat in Parliament. It is not however the man, BUT THE CAUSE, for which I contend. It was not for himself, but for the Cause that he contended, and was ready to give up his interest to any Gentleman more known to the County. His declining to go to the Poll I must publicly condemn. It was contrary to my earnest advice, and contrary to the advice of the greater part of his Cheltenham friends— li s sentiments were influenced by the pressing solicitations of his older friends, to send his resigmtion to the Committee at the King's Head, before they went to the Hall.— This sudden and unexpected resignation was a severe disappointment to a large body of Gentlemen and Freeholders, impatient to give their suffrages to an In- dependent Candidate. It was a severe disappoint- ment to the great mass of the people, who found their highly raised hopes extinguished, without any obvious reason or explanation. The simple truth is, that being left destitute of the subscription he had reason to ex- pect, Sir Edwin thought it prudent to retire. This event cannot be called a triumph to the opposite party — their success was acquired by money; the powerful aid of money, so essential to give vigor to a contest. The opinion of the people was not change^.— the public eye of this country is not easily deceived— the sumptuous and splendid spectacle of " the chairing" did not impose on the populace. " No man cried God save him; no joyful tongue gave him his welcome home." Even the hired gladiators, " canentes Casa- rem," could scarcely excite a shout for their hero I Gentlemen, yon have but one alternative— you must either submit to be assigned from an Uncle to a Nephew, at sue., time as suits tlieir own family arrange- ments, liise the assignment of a mortgage deed, or you must combat the enemy with his own weapons — MONEY I " Quadringentis sex septem millii desunt." Money must be iiad, it is chimerical to carry on an Election without; and I submit to your consideration a plan fur raising it. Let a Subscription List be opened at every Bankiu every Town in Glocestershire, to be intitled, " The Fund of the Independent Freeholders of the County of O'oce3ter"— the same to be under tiie direct on of a Committee in each town, constitut- ed of the three largest subscribers. The population and opulence of this County, since the great contest in the year 1776, has much increased, and the number possessed of Freeholds has increased in proportion; the Freeholders who polled at tiiat Election were 5793, but the present list, I understand, is nearly 3000. I am confident, that for so noble a purpose, Fifty Thou- sand Pounds might be raised in a few weeks, aiW the Fund would accumulate by interest until it was neces- sary to call it into action. Freeholders who rent under Peers, and others, wlto might be unwilling to avow their names, may contri- bute their aid under an assumed signature. In the Town of Cheltenham, I w ill begin the Subscription with 1001.— persons of larger means will subscribe largely. Some Thousands may be raised in the Hun- dred of Cheltenham alone. The twenty- eight Hun- dreds of the Comity would produce an immense sum. With the hearts of the people, with the armour of a good cause, and with weapons to carry it On, you • would strike a death blow to these family assignments. You might then choose yonr own representative, and pay him,— did the ancient usage ufPuriian wt prevail, for doing his duty by his Constituents. Gentlemen, let this subject occupy your thoughts— let it have a claim to your serious attention. The sparks of Liberty and Freedom, though smothered for a time, are not- extinguished; and with the opportunity of the next Election, would burst forth with energetic fire! If such a plan as I have taken the liberty to suggest, or something similar to it, were to be adopted, I think we might fairly cherish the mostsanguine hopes of its beneficial effects to the nation at large. THIS COUNTRY IS WORTH PRESERV- ING !— It behoves every Loyal Subject to lend his aid in asserting and maintaining the Constitution, as by- law established, of KING, LORDS, AND COM- MONS. I have the honor to remain, Gentlemen, Your faithful humble Servant; ROBERT HUGHES, Cheltenham, May 21, 1810. 2 of 30,000/. 19 ... of - - <£ 20,000 15- 2 - - - of - - .£ 2,000 33 ... of - - ^ 10,000 76 - - - of 1,000 47- ... 0f - - - 5,000 | 99 - - - of - - - - 500 HORNSBY and Co.

To the^ Medical Practitioners in the County of • • GLOCESTER. , WE whose names, are hereunto subscribed, beg leave earnestly to address our brethren in the county of Giocester, . on a subject that is equally connected with the reputation of our profession and the safety of the . community: The subjoined reso'u- tionsare declaratory of our .. sentiments, and of the means tiiat we think should be adopted to give them effect. We are convinced of their utility and propri- ety; and we trust that they, will soon'be admitted and acted upon by every medical man. It is deemed per- fectly unnecessary to make any remarks upon the evi- dence on which they are founded. Luckiiy for man- kind, the efficacy of Cow- Pox has been ascertained by the severest tests; and the prejudices and misconcep- tions which prevail against it, only require to be dissi- pated to secure its universal adoption. While we, in common with the majority and most respectable of our brethren in every part of the world, rest confident in this belief, we nevertheless think that much may be done to accelerate a triumph which we all anticipate, by promoting the scheme now proposed. It is not brought forward to draw the unthinking, or unwary, into a measure which their more mature deliberation may condemn. None are called upon to support it, who have not fully examined the evidence in its favour; and none ought to support it, who entertain the slight- est doubts respecting the conclusions to which that evidence leads. More than sufficient facts have been accumulated to enable every competent judge to come toadecision. Every conscientious man is bound to come to a decision— the public have a right to demand it,— and we think it should no longer be withheld. In submitting the present plan to the members of our profession in this county, we joyfully look forward to consequences of the most beneficial nature.— The combined and unequivocal testimony of those who have longest known the advantages of Vaccina- tion, who have watched its progress with the most anxious care, and who, from their local situation, have been constant witnesses of the caution, the skill, and the talents, evinced bv the illustrious individual who first gave it to the world, must have the effect of re- moving the fatal errors which have lately induced mis- guided persons to send many of their fellow- creatures to an untimely grave, by the wilful and wanton propo- gation of a most pestilential and dangerous disease.— It is right that we should be foremost in an attempt of this kind— that we should set an example, which, We trust will be followed by every district in the kingdom — that we should mark our high sense of the value of the discovery to which this county has given birth, by cordially and collectively promoting it on all occa- sions, and principally by determining to check, by every possible means, the ravages of that distemper which it is now in our power to extirpate entirely. It only remains for us to illustrate our plan, by ad- ding the following resolutions, founded as they are on the highest sense of public utility and professional duty. RESOLVED,— I. That we see with regret the pre- judices hostile to Vaccination which exist in this neigh- bourhood. II. That the honour of our profession, and the repu- tation of this county, require that every possible means should h." en- rdo; ci to l them, III. That those Gentlemen who are satisfied of the efficacy of Vaccination, be requested to unite with us in forming a Society, to be called " THE GLOCES- TERSHIRE VACCINE ASSOCIATION." IV. That the objects of this Association shall be, to promote Cow- Pox and discourage Small- Pox Inocu- lation. V. That, with this intention, the Members of this Association shall individually and collectively declare, That they, considering their knowledge of Cow- Pox, do not believe themselves entitled either to practice, or, in any way whatever to sanction, the use of Small- Pox Inoculation, t and that henceforth they renounce it accordingly. RESOLVED further, That the foregoing Address and Resolutions be, printed iu the Giocester and Chelten- ham. Papers-, that copies of them be sent to every Me dical Practitioner in the county; that those Members of the Association who'are resident in Giocester, ( as being the most central part of the county,) be request- ed to act as a Committee to receive communications; and that a subscription be opened for defraying the necessary expences.

INNUMERABLE nostrums for nervous disorders, and debility of body and mind, are so frequently advertised, and puffed with such unblushing effrontery, that the proprietor of Dr. TVYLOR's RESTORATIVE PILLS, is unwilling to obtrude his important discovery upon tiie public, in a way which is considered disreputable by most medical men who have received a regular and liberal education. Un- willing, however, as he is to put himself in competition with professed quacks, he must in justice to himself and to the public state, that Dr. Taylor's Restorative Pills, are the safest and most efficacious remedy ever yet recommended thus publicly, f r weak, nervous, and debilitated constitutions, and for all the baleful train of disorders Which are so sure to overtake those who indulge their intemperate appetites and desires, or who lead a sedentary and inactive life.— Taken in a morning, after a night of inebriety and debauch, they immediately restore the stomach to its proper tone and strength, and expel the noxious fumes of the liquor, inid the consequent pains and giddiness, from the head. It is not, perhaps, too presuming in the proprietor of the Rcstorativ Pills, to pledge himself that no otner advertised medicine for nerv us disorders is half so deserving of public approbation as Dr. Taylor's Restorative P. lis.

THURSDAY'S POST. LONDON, WEDNESDAY, MAY 23. TTUS day arrived Paris papers to the 16th, and Dutch to tlie 20th instant. Napoleon reaeiied Brussels 011 the loth, 011 his way back to Paris. These papers also give some details respecting the fall of Astoria, of which we had before received accounts via Corunna. The French, as usual, exaggerate the number ofthe Spaniards who were in the place at the time of the surrender. But the most important ar- ticle is the following IMPERIAL DECREE. " Rambmillct, 23d Hi arch, IP, 10. " All vessels sailing under the American flag, and owned, in whole or in part, by any citizen or subject of that Power, that, reckoning from the 20th of May, 1809, may have already entered, or that shall subse- quently enter the ports of France, her colonics, or the territories occupied by the French armies, shall be seized and sold, and the produce of the sale shall be deposited in the sinking ftmd. From this provision are alone excepted such vessels as may be charged with dispatches, or commissions, from tbe Govern- ment of the United States, and have 110 lading or merchandize 011 board. This decree is issued in consequence of an act is- sued by the Government, of the United States, dated 14 M; frch, 1809, ordering:— i. That from the 20th of May next ensuing, vessels arriving in the United . States, under the French Hag, shall be seized and con- fiscated, together with their cargoes, 2. That from the sanie period, 110 merchandize, nor production of the soil, or manufactures of France or her colonies, can be imported into the ports of the United States, from any foreign port whatsoever, under pain of seizure, confiscation, and a penalty of three times' the value of the goods. 3. That it shall not be law- ful for American vessels to proceed to any port of France, her colonies, or dependencies." A subsequent decree has also been issued, of which we have received the following abstract, in a letter of the 19th, from Rotterdam: — " It is ordered that all American property seques- trated in the newly- acquired countries, shall be sent to Antwerp for sale ; and the produce shall be depo- sited in the sinking fund." An American vessel had arrived at Brouwershaven, loaded with tobacco and potash, and it was expected would suffer the denouncement ofthe above decree. A decree lias been issued by Napoleon, ill which lie unites to France all the countries on that side of the Ebro, under four Governments, headed by his Gene- rals. By the 6th title it appears that Bonaparte in- tends to extend this decree to the wholeof Spain. The preamble runs :—" Considering that the enormous sums which our army of Spain costs us impoverish our treasury, and oblige our people to make sacrifices which they cannot support; considering on the other hand, that the Spanish administration is without energy, and in many provinces does not even exist, 1 and so far from being able to derive any advantages from the resources of the country, leaves them to be employed by the insurgents; we have decreed and do decree," See. Sic. A mail from Lisbon, arrived at Falmouth, has brought accounts from the former place down to the 14th instant. No event of any importance had oc- curred, and the expectation of a speedy engagement has subsided. It was generally believed at Lisbon, that the enemy had retired from his position in the neighbourhood of Lord Wellington's army. Portuguese papers to the 13th state, that the whole force opposed to Lord Wellington, amounts to 37,000 men. Of these 20,000, under the command of Mar- shal Ney, have advanced from Salamanca towards Cuidad Rodrigo ; and 13,000 are at Astorga, under the Duke of Abrantes. The head- quarters ofLord Wel- lington are at Celerico : the whole force under his Lordship's command consisted of 22 battalions of in- fantry and five of cavalry, all English, besides 40 pieces of artillery. The Portuguese troops consist of 12 battalions. The whole army is described as be- ing in high health and spirits; and what is perhaps singular, not one desertion has taken place from the Portuguese battalions since their advance to the fron- tiers. General Cameron's brigade is atLinhazes, General Louis's brigade is at Franozo, General Picton's and Lightburn's are at Pinhel, General Campbell's in the Mondeza valley, General Cole's is at Celerico, and General Crawford's between Almeida and Ciudad Ro- drigo. The Portuguese General Carriera has marched from Coria to Naves Frias. It is said that the French fleet has dropped down the Scheldt from Antwerp, and that it is the intention of Sir R. Strachan to make a dash at them while at anchor, should an opportunity be afforded by the wind and weather.— The possibility of this attempt is favoured by the knowledge acquired in the navigation of both the East and West Scheldt, in the late ex- pedition to Walclieren. The Doctors have hopes of the recovery of the Princess Amelia.— Courier. Upwards of 700 most respectable liverymen dined at the Old London Tavern, Bishopsgate- street, yes- terday, to commemorate the expression of the senti- ments of the loyal and independent citizens of Lon- don, contained in the declaration of the meeting, held on Friday the 4th instant. During the sccnc of con- viviality within doors, a considerable crowd was col- lected without, who rent the air with their discor- dant shrieks and cries of disapprobation, and 011 any persons leaving the tavern, at the front door, they were pelted with mud. In the HOUSE of LORDS on Tuesday, the third reading of the Gas Light Bill was negatived ; 011 an understanding, however, that the evidence be printed, aud that the bill be recommitted. The Lord Chan- cellor apprised the House, that a clause was intro- duced into Guard's Divorce Bill, in pursuance of their Standing Order, prohibiting the offending party from marrying again. I11 tbe HOUSE of COMMONS, Mr. Rose proposed a resolution for doubling the present dutie^ upon foreign timber. The great supply of this article had been from the North of Europe, and conveyed in foreign ships. Siuce the commencement of the northern trade, foreign timber had risen 300 per cent.; the freight had conveyed vast sums of money to foreigners. He thought that every encouragement ought to be given to the importation of timber from our own set- tlements in North America, which could supply one half of our timber consumption; and tbe pine timber from Canada would supply it all. He denied an ex- traordinary and ill- judged assertion advanced by a Noble Lord ( Cochrane) 011 a former night— that there was not timber enough in Plymouth dock- yard to build one half of a seventy- four. Agreed to. The Chancellor of the Exchequer got leave to bring in a bill for regulating the manner of making surcharges upon the Assessed Taxes, and the Tax 011 Property, and tor amending the said Acts. lie proposed caus- ing notice to be made of every surcharge to the person on whom it was imposed, who might then apply again to the Commissioners, and if it should appear that the return was not fraudulent, no double charge was to take place. General Loft moved the repeal of those parts of the different taxes upon property, which applied to officers in the army and navy, and to subalterns ill the militia. He however, agreed to withdraw the motion on an understanding that it would meet with the mostsirious attention. Monday night, when the doors of the House of Commons were shut, we understand that Mr. Broug- ham asked a question, " whether a report which had reached his car was correct, that the charter of a cer- tain close borough being about to expire, it was the intention of his Majesty's Ministers to advise the re- new:;! of the same?" Mr. Brotigham was called on to name thq borough, which he did —" Maiden, in the county of Essex." Upon which Mr. Perceval owned, it was proposed bV Ministers to renew it. Here the matter was dropped— for Mr. Brougham said it was not his intention at present to ground any proceeding on this information ; but to recommend it to the Gentlemen 011 both sides of the House who had expressed themselves favourable to a limited and spe- cific plan of Reform, although they voted against Mr. Brand's Resolution. Here at least one decayed borough might have been cut off", and two Members granted for either Manchester, Birmingham, Shef- field, or Leeds.

LONDON, THURSDAY, MAT 24. STOCKS.— 3 per Cent. Cons, fbr money 70} 71— Do. for July 715 72— 3 per Cent. Reduced Omnium l| Jprem. MR. DICKENSON, who accompanied Mr. Mac- 1 kenzie to Morlaix, ami brought dispatches from thence some time ago, is returned to France xvith the answer to these dispatches. As Mr. Mac- kenzie is at P aris tie will proceed thither direct. We have been informed that an intention was en- tertained of sending tlie Duke TV Angoulemc, the hus- band of the interesting daughter of Louis XVIth, to Spain— that his Royal Highness had actually set out for Plymouth, when a messenger from Government was sent after him, requesting him to return to Lon- don. COI'EIER. The following note is annexed in the Monitenr of the 15th inst. to the official account of the surrender of Astorga:— " Lord Wellington remains with the English army a spectator of those events.— He does not move from his camn. — He hears the sound of the cannon of Astorga, of liadajos, of Cadiz, bnt contents himself with foment- ing insurrections, and furnishing arms and clothing.— He remains tranquil, while the Puke ofElchingen is making all the dispositions for the siege of Citidad Ro- drigo! Will he suffer him to take that place without succouring it ? Thus the French army, carrying on, under the eyes of the English, four great sieges, pre- pares every thing ( or that of Cadajos, andhas, on all sides, moving columns to repress the plundering ex- cited by England." Eight millions of dollars have arrived at Cadiz in the Asia, Algesiras, and another ship ; and 400 stand of arms have also been received there from England. A vessei which arrived yesterday from Ostend, from whence she sailed 011 Saturday, has brought in- telligence that Bonaparte and his Consort were expected there on the following day. They visited Ghent the middle of last week, where they separated; his Majesty to inspect some of the neighbouring for- tresses, and the Empress to proceed to Bruges, where Bonaparte intended to rejoin her, and continue their route to CMend. The Archduke Charles has again accepted the title and office of Generalissimo ; he has, as before, the chief command over every thing relative to war. A letter from an officer 011 board the Implacable, of 74, states, that Baron de Kolli has been executed in sight of our shipping in Quiberon Bay, and the body left suspended for two days. Bombay newspapers to the 9th December last, state that all the late discontents among the military have been happily terminated. A piratical village, which had proved extremely troublesome, has been captured and destroyed. It may be recollected that about two months ago, sn homeward- bound Indiaman, bringing dispatches, and those too of some importance, as they related to the rebellion in the Company's F. ast India troops, was met so near home by a French privateer, as in the chops of the Channel. It may also be recollected that the Indiaman, being doubtful of encountering the enemy's force, threw overboard the dispatches; in which operation by the way, the usual precautions were adopted of using means to sink the, box which contained them. By what means the box became liberated from tlie weights which were tied to it, to sink it, it is now very difficult to ascertain; bnt cer- tain it is that the bojt floated, aud about a fortnight ago was cast ashore near Castlehaven, in the county of Cork, where it was taken possession of by a very- respectable gentleman in that neighbourhood. Enquiry was immediately made to examine the con- tents of the box, in which, among several official do- cuments of a public nature, were also found some letters from a very gallant aud distinguished officer of . the army to a most amiable woman, his wife, resident in this city, which were immediately forwarded with every generous attention, according to the direction. In the maritime world the circumstance, trifling as it is, may lead to some important discovery as to tlie courses of currents and tides, from Seilly to Cape Clear, not many miles from which latter place, after so long a drift, this box had been thrown oil shore.— ( From a Dublin Paper.) A packet from New York is arrived at Falmouth, which left New- York on the 5th of last month, and Halifax on the 27th. Yesterday a numerous company assembled at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, to celebrate the An- niversary ofSir Francis Bardett's Election for West- minster. Lord Cochrane, Mr. Coke, of Norfolk, Mr. Jones Bnrdett, Major Cartw right, and many other public characters, were present. The Princess Mary pays the greatest attention possible to her sister ; in fact, she never leaves her. All the other Princesses visit their afflicted sister four or live times a day. His Majesty visit sher daily, and in general stops two hours with her. The Queen presented Miss Dashwood ( now the Marchioness of Ely), who was one of her Maids of Honour, upon her marriage, with 10001. The Prin- cess Elizabeth presented her with a very valuable lace cloak. In the Honse ofCommons yesterday, Mr. Calcraft moved that Joseph Hunt, late Treasurer of the Ord- nance, had violated the Act of Parliament under which he held his office, by embezzling a large sum of the public money. And 2dly, that for this his of- fence he be expelled the House.— Agreed to. An assertion in Mr. Grattan's speech 011 Friday last, upon the Catholic Petition, has produced the resolution mentioned in the following letter from the University of Oxford :— " OXFORD, MAY 23. " In consequence of the allusion made by Mr. Grattan, in the debate of Friday last, to ' lie late election of the Chancellor, Lord Grenville, aud the silence of the University on the Catholic Petitions, a Convocation was this morning held, in which it was resolved, without opposition, ' that the Representa- tives in Parliament for this University be requested to oppose the motion made by Mr. Grattan, the debate on which stands adjourned to Friday next; and to resist those Petitions of the Roman Catholics of England and Ireland, which pray for' the total repeal of every test, oath, declaration, or provision, which has the effect of subjecting the petitioners to any pen- alty or disability whatsoever on account of their religious principles." ROBBERY. Ten Guineas Reward. Bristol, May 23, 1810. STOLEN, this day, from the shop of Messrs. HARTLEY & EGGERT, Clock and Watch- makers, in Nicholas- street;— SEVERAL WATCHES, Among which are the following;— 1 single case French Gold Watch, with fly- up spring; 1 Silver stop ditto, without name; 2 others, with the name of Woodworth, Liverpool; and 1 ditto, with the names of Meyer and Hartley, Bristol. Information has been received that the person who stole them left Bristol, and took the road through Glocester for Tewkesbury and Birmingham, and was seen in the Bristol Raad, travelling towards Glocester, on Thursday evening,- the 24th hist. He is rather a short man, about 5 feet 4 inches high, marked witn the smallpox; tiad 011 a dirty apron, with a loose dark brown great coat; and travels with 2 small boxes, with metal broaches and other trinkets. Whoever will discover the offender, shall, upon con- viction, receive the above reward, and all reasonable Thames paid, by applying to Hartley and Esrgert, Nicholas- street, Bristol"; to Mr. John Avery, shoe- maker, Hate- lane, Glocester; or to Mr. Benjamin Walker, butcher, No. 28, High- street, Tewkesbury. If offered for pawn or sale, it is hoped the parties will be stopt, and the reward will be paid as above. ^ LOCESTER* SATURDAY, MAY 25. THE belief of an engagement taking place between the British and French troops in the Peninsula* seems to have been greatly diminished by the last intelli- gence which has been received. From the general aspect of affairs in Spain, we cannot express any thing the least sanguine as to the ultimate success of her cause. Since the Spaniards suffered the favourable opportunity for redeeming their country which was afforded them by the Austrian war to pass away, we have had less, tav less, confi- dence in the result of t/ ieir struggle. That the Aus- trian peace did not press them down to the utmost despondency tlas an indication of a firm principle, of a manly heart, of the inveterate liate they bear to their foes. That they have been as active since that time " as circumstances would allow is most certain. They have risen in our esteem ; and the people, and a few of their leaders, have established their claim to the high and holy character of Patriotism ; tint in proportion as we esteem, we pity them. Their late partial successes have done little to dissipate the gloom which bangs over their destiny. We do not, however, view the contest as unim- portant. Spain will stand as an example to all go- vernments ; she will teach them that the compromise of their dignity and independence from the base in- fluence of fear, may postpone their overthrow, but cannot arrest it— that it makes it eventually the more easy : while 011 the other hand warning is given to aggressive tyrants, which affords some support to the hope of oppressed nations. Patriotism, though not. successful, because it had been betrayed by pretended friends, has there had its revenge. The enemy's thousands and tens of thousands slain there is a re- tribution awful, but encouraging. The military power of Fiance has been debilitated by its efforts, and the contest is not yet at an end. Thousands more are doomed to the same fate, and even when conquered, the spirit of revenge and resistance w ill still slumber under its ashes, and the living principle again expand when France shall be called to a dis- tance by the mandates of her ambition, or be sunk to repose by the violence of her exertions. Lord Durslcy took the oaths and his seat, in the House of Commons 011 Tuesday. The Archbishop of Canterbury has collated the Rev. John Nance, A. M. late fellow of Worcester College, Oxford, to the Rectory of Old Romney, in Kent. On Wednesday last, Thomas Gardner, of this city, Gent, was admitted au Attorney of his Majesty's Court of Ring's Bench. On Saturday, John Chadborn, of this city, Gent, was admitted an Attorney of his Majesty's Court of King's Bench. On Thursday, Heury Wilton, of New Inn, Lon- don, Gent, was admitted au Attorney of his Majesty's Court of King's Bench. On Thursday last was married, at Newnham, James Cornock, Esq. of Gossingtou- hall, Slimbridge, to Miss Taylor, of Newnham. Lately was married, at Standish, Sir. S. Butcher, to Miss Hannah Martin, second daughter of Mr. Tho- mas Martin, of the same place. Last week died, at Smith's Boarding- House, in Cheltenham, John Lucas, Esq. aged 53. An extraordinary number of good horses arc en- tered for the sweepstakes of 40gs. to be run for on the first morning at Worcester Races; so that much sport may fairly be anticipated. Hereford fair 011 Saturday was tolerably well at- tended ; the shew of cattle was small, but several very fine animals were in the market, aud all kinds sold well. Hereford Agricultural Society hold their first meet- ing this summer On the seventh of June, instead of the thirtieth; it having been found inconvenient to deter shearing tile rams to the latter period. The second meeting takes plane at Leominster, as usual, ou tlie Friday before Brampton Bryan fair. Lord Somerville is going to Lisbon for the benefit of his health. By an accurate calculation, it appears that Great Britain, in the coure of the last year, produced 600,000 packs of wool. The Worcester militia are to encamp 011 South- Sea Common, near Portsmouth ; and the Durham march to Hilsea barracks to make room for them. An alarm having lately prevailed, and which, in all probability, has been greater in the minds of many since the disastious event at Liverpool, that the steeple of Cheltenham church was unsafe, and required re- paration ; a committee has been appointed by a ves- try, to investigate the grounds of the alarm, whose report will shortly be made public; and should it ap- pear that any measures of safety arc requisite, the most speedy and decisive steps will be taken to ensure security. As Viscount Castleross, son of the Earl of Kenmare, accompanied by some gentlemen, was lately taking an airing in the vicinity of Killarney, 011 horseback, he was, by a sudden jerk, thrown off with such vio- lence, that his arm was unfortunately broken. On Tuesday John Taylor was committed to our county prison, by Sir Wm. Hicks, Bart, charged on the oath of Walter Mayers, Of Cheltenham, with hav- ing stolen a silver watch, his property.— On Wednes- day James Reed, by G. Cooke, D. l). charged with stealing about half a peek of wheat, the property of Robert Cole, of Old Sodbury.— And 011 Thursday, Isaac Haines, by Samuel Watlien, Esq. charged with stealing about thirty yards of broad- cloth, the property Mr. Wm. Toghill, of Chalford;— and John Davies, and Thomas Bick, charged with stealing from a barge, about six hundred weight of coal, the property of John Baker, of Brimsconib Port. Oil Friday as aman of the name of W. Francis, em- ployed by the Chepstow Company, was falling timber in Chanson Wood, Herefordshire, a tree unexpected- ly gave way, and falling upon him, completely severed his head from his body, by jamming it upon a tree ou the ground. The city of Bath was, on Wednesday evening, thrown into great confusion by the Mcndip local militia, who were there on permanent duty, under the command of Colonel Rogers. A dispute arose between the officers and men respecting the marching guinea, as they term it; a deduction was made from it for trowsers, which the men objected to, and some of them refusing to obey the word of command, were taken up and put into the city goal. About eight o'clock in the evening the privates met in a large body, advanced to the prison, bioke open the doors, liber- ated their comrades, and carried them off in triumph. On Friday morning ( the 18th) the regiment were marched to Claverton Down, and the ringleaders of the party who broke open the prison doors were tried at a drum- head court- martial, and one of them was sentenced to receive 50 lashes. The Colonel made a long speech to the regiment respecting the impro- priety of their conduct, exhorted them to behave better in future, and to pay attention to their officers ; and, finally pardoned the man who was preparing to receive the punishment allotted. The Lancashire Militia, and'the Bath Volunteers, were in readiness to act had further tumult prevailed, and a part of the 7 th light dragoons and the Frooine Selwood cavalry ar- rived 011 Friday, so that tranquillity may be con- sidered as completely restored. The points of law which were reserved for the opi- nions of the Judges in the cases of Richard Wright, John Lee, and William Hancock, condemned for burglary at the last Salisbury Assizes, have been de- cided against the prisoners. The sentence of Hancock is respited during his Majesty's pleasure : Wright and i Lee were executed yesterday. A General Order,, dated Horse Guards, May 22, states :—" \ Vhen,. Soldiers of good character may solicit their discharges, on grounds so strong as to claim the attention of the Commander in Chief, they shall, instead of providing substitutes, be required to pay the levy- money of two recruits of the same des- cription, and to be engaged for the same period of service as themselves; Which money is to be applied to tlie general purposes of recruiting the army:" A gentleman of the name of Yt\ « vil, a native of Dorchefcter, started on Monday morning at Henley, to go 500 miles on foot in Seven successive days, which is above TO miles a day ; he hail done ICO miles at twelve o'clock on Tuesday night, and is backed to win. It may be said to savour of something like an usu- rious contract, when we hear of six thousand guineas being possible to be gained by a few shillings ; this is not, however, out of the chapter of probabilities, as a slight perusal of the scheme of the present lottery will evince.

Living as I do on the borders of the Severn, I have frequently been an eye witness to the many unlawful means used for the destruction of salmon fish; and so iong has it been done with impunity, that the offenders consider themselves fully justified in their practice, and it now continues a growing evil. It is not for want of very sufficient laws being in existence: our ancestors considered the preservatioi of salmon in a serious way ; and by Acts of Parlia- ment passed in the reigns of King Edward the First, Kin:; Richard the Second, and Queen Elizabeth, very severe penalties were enacted to deter people from taking fish at improper seasons, as likewise from de- stroying the spawn or fry of fi ll. It is shameful to see the quantity of unseasonable salmon exposed for sale in this and other markets, when it can so easily be prevented by a few gentlemen stepping forward and appointing ( as the law directs) a PROPER PERSON AS CONSERVATOR, with power to seize and destroy all such fish, and levy an immediate fine before a magis- trate from the seller, or in default thereof, he or she might be committed to prison. Then there is uo doubt but that, in the course of a few years, we should have salmon in the same abundance as formerly. OBSERVATOR.

GENTLEMEN, T AM conscious that if the wishes of an immense majority of Freeholders could hare placed me in the honourable station of an Independent Representative of this County, my Cause, or rather Your Cause, wovhl. hare been triumphantly successful; b> tf. Gentlemen, I could not give effect to your flattering wishes, 1 could not assert aud maintain the Independence of the County without endangering my own Sanguine friends, and otlur most respectable Gentlemen of the County. Relying on the just impatience of'British Freeholders lo emancipate themselves from dictation and dependence, suggested and fondly cherished the hope, that the indignant spiri and warm wishes of the County, would have been seconded by a contribution of the funds, necessary to c- oten the public feeling with a victory due to a cause ever dear to English- men. To this hope I clung wit'i a confidence, net arising front any humble pretensions of my ore - but grounded on the inspiriting justie >, and honour of the cause. That hope has been disappointed for ihe present. I will not affect to deny that my heart parted from that hope with • i pang of regret tier f to be forgottei, till the cav e cj Independence shall triumph, and the County of Glocestci be redeemed from its present, dependence. If the canvass ofthe County, and discussion it has excited, should lead the Freeholders lo reflect on the derogal > ry state oJx its representation; if it should tend to awaken the free- holders to a just sense of the value of their long- abused franchise; if it should accelerate, hut fir at hour, the triumph of the cause of Independence, I shall on my death- bed feel an unspeakable pleasure ' n Ihe recollection of the motives that now influenced me to come forward, and my last worldly wish shall be, Independence a d Prosperity to the County of Giocester. For the sentiments manifested towards me during my Canvas, and for the support I received, I beg to return my sincere acknowledgments To say from my h'urt I thank you, is but inadequately to express the feelings of gratitude and respect of, Gentlemen., Your faithful and obedient Servant, E.

BR AN1> rose to submit to the consideration of the House his motion respecting Parlia- mentary Reform. After a few preliminary obser- vations', in which he stated ins intention to propose that the matter be referred to a Committee, he pro- ceeded to develope the plan which he had conceived, and now recommended for adoption. The first and greatest evil that existed, was that so many Members of that House were nominated by in- dividuals, the proprietors of decayed boroughs. The remedy for this evil was to be found in the good old constitutional practice of the Legislature. He was not disposed to look to any innovation ; lie should not consult any fanciful theory or speculative system ; he would be guided by the sound practice of the British Constitution, ami in that he should find means enough to remedy the evii of which lie complained. It was well known to have been the practice ot old t. i re- lieve, on their application, particular boroughs from the onus of sending Representatives to Parliament.— The same principle would authorise the disfranchise- ment of » tich boroughs as no longer possessed proper- ty or population to entitle them to such a right, which shook; lie transferred to more opulent and populous places. In feeling, however, and iti ecpiity, he thought that some compensation ought to be granted; at the same time that he should ever deny that the boroTtf. h proprietors had any right to such compen- sation. Yet he would, with satisfaction, agree to grant the compensation; because, even though it should he prodigal, it would eventually lie a saving to tli" country. There were, he had reason to know, above thirty boroughs which had not fity voters each, and tiie Representatives for which were- consequently nominated by the proprietors of the boroughs. He should beg to make one or two observations on the right of election. That right, he must contend, could not exist in depopulated and uninhabited places. Property real and personal, and population, must and ought to be the basis of such aright. When a place became deficient in population, and no proper- ty existed in it but what was possessed by the indi- vidual claiming the power of population, then the place must cease to possess the right of returning Re- presentatives to Parliament: and no consequences could result from its being suffered to remain with them, but such as were injurious and detrimental to the nation. That property and population formed the basis of representation, he collected from the spirit of the constitution. It was a principle recog- nised by our ancestors, and he found it pervading every one of their measures respecting the constitu- tion of Parliament. The elective franchise for coun- ties had very wisely been given to the freeholders of such counties. He should not think of altering that arrangement, but was of opinion that the copyholders should also be allowed to vote. He could see 110 ground in reason or principle, why they should not, equally with the freeholders, be permitted to vote for County Members. In this part of his plan, therefore, he should propose no innovation. He recognised the principle of making property the basis ofthe elective franchise ; for property would, inevitably, possess its influence, in spite of the theory of the philosopher, or tiie violence of the people. The comities, therefore, be should propose to leave as they are at. the present, with the exception of adding the copy holders to the freeholders; and, after the destruction of the feudal system in this country, he could see no objection to a bill for enfranchising copyholders. ( Hear, Hear.)— This was the only alteration lie proposed in the right of voting in comities, except in a few of the northern counties, and in Scotland, of which he should say something before he sat down. In the metropolis, and other populous places, he should propose that the right of votii g should be given to all householders pay- ing parochial and other taxes. This was a principle that had been recognised and acted upon by their an- cestors : and in proposing to act upon it, he thought that he removed the principal objection to reform.— He was aware that this plan had not any of the osten- tatious parade of theory, or the affectation of being rendered such as to be unintelligible to even the meanest capacity, but it was all of pure English growth, and on that account he was inclined to prefer it. The representative system would be continued according to the constitution; and 110 alteration would be made, but in extending the right of voting to copyholders in counties, and to all householders in populous towns and boroughs. In the northern counties of England, and in Scotland, he could not see any reason why the right of voting should not be assimilated to the practice in this country, and left in the counties to the resident freeholders and copyholders; and in the boroughs, to Iiouseholders paying parochial and other taxes. He came now to the consideration of that materia! part of the subject, the application of the Members for the disfranchised boroughs to places which have not hitherto been represented. Upon this liead, not hav- ing the necessary evidence, it was impossible for him to be competent to point out the proper places to which to transfer the right of election. North of Oxford- street, there was a population of above 400,000 inhabitants, who were at present not represented at all. In the West of England, 011 the contrary', many places returned Members to Parliament without hav- ing any population deserving of notice. What claim, he would ask, could Gatton, Old Sarum, or the sub- marine inhabitants of St. Mawes, have to the right of sending representatives to Parliament ? The right of election, in his opinion, should he transferred from these and such places to Manchester, Birmingham, and other populous towns, and the most populous counties. With respect to Scotland, he should suppose, that there could be 110 objection to assimilate the election laws of that country to the laws of England. As to the state ot the representation in Ireland, he was not disposed to propose any change. He should, how- ever, bring that subject under the consideration of the Committee, if his motion should be agreed to.— Upon the duration of Parliaments he had bestow- ed much and earnest attention : annual Parliaments would leave the Representative too little accustomed to business to be competent to iiis duties in that House. He, for his part, would be inclined to take a middle course between the two extremes of annual aud septennial Parliaments, and to recommend trien- nial Parliaments; which, without the evils of either would possess all the advantages of both. But the difficulties in changing the duration of the Parliament would be immense, unless a concurrent change were to be made in the mode of making the returns. \ Some thought that the returns should be made by districts, ethers, that the votes should be taken by districts. To making the returns by districts he had strong ob- jections ; of voting by districts he approved. He did not know whether gentlemen had attended particu- larly to this point, but he considered it of considerable importance. He begged to exemplify the opinion he bad given by a reference to the county( Hert; ordshire) he represented. If there were four Members to be returned, and they were to be returned by districts, that would throw the whole of the representation into the four principal towns of the county. The free- holders of the towns would uniformly prevail over the freeholders of the county, because they could almost always outnumber tlieni at an election, and conse- quently some inhabitant of the town would be gene- rally returned. This would be to commute the county for the borough election. But if the votes were to be taken by districts, it, would save jDiich expence, and enable those, who at present art deterred by a consideration of the expeace from offering themselves to become candidates. Nothing need prevent the Sheriffs from taking the votes throughout the different districts, without subjecting the candidate to the cx- pence of bringing up the freeholders from the extre- mities of the couuty to the place of election. The votes might also be collected throughout the different parishes in populous towns. Unless some such ar- rangement should be made, it would he impossible to establish triennial Parliaments without producing mis- chiefs of the most dangerous tendency. There was another point remaining, to which it was necessary to call the attention of the House, and which would require a remedy, viz. the number of persons holding places and seats in that House.—( Hear, hear.) Something was necessary to be done 011 that head; but he was ready to admit that he did not think that all persons holding offices should be excluded from that House. He was confident, however, that per- sons holding offices without responsibility should not be suffered to have seats iu that House ; he hoped, therefore, that a Bill would be brought in to exclude such persons from Parliament. The people demanded a moderate reform as their right, and if their demand were not complied with would endeavour to assert their right.— What the result of such a struggle might be, it was not for iiim to anticipate; but in his con- science he believed that the country must have a moderate reform, or it would be subjected to a military government. If that House were to reject the former, then would the sun of the nation's free- dom aud greatness be for ever set; but if, on the con- trary, that House should adopt reform, then would the sun of Britain rise from its present dark horizon, and again shine forth in all the splendour of meridian lustre. He should not trespass longer upon the at- tention of the House, but conclude " by moving. ** That a Committee be appointed to inquire into the state of the Representation of the People in that 1 louse, to consider of the most effectual means of re- formingit, and to report the same, w ith their opinions thereon, to the House." Mr. I). GIDDY admitted that this was the mostmo- deratc plan of reform which be had lately heard, but could not assent to the necessity of such a measure. LordMiltonsaid, lie was decidedly against the motion, because he could not see the necessity of it. The plan of his H011. Friend was fair to view and specious, but lie believed he was much mistaken if lie thought he could make a better constitution than the old con- stitution of this country ; he hoped the measure might not be adopted to satisfy a popular cry. Sir J. New- port gave his perfect assent to the motion. Sir James Pnlteney opposed it. Mr. Sturges Bourne said, that considering the present state of the country, he thought the House should not be anxious for a discus- sion 011 the subject of reform. Mr. Wardle heartily concurred with the motion. Mr. Whitbread said, this was a subject which had been recommended by- Mr. Pitt, which alone he considered a recommenda- tion ; he believed that the indisposition of the people against the House of Commons was great, and that the • ecessity of a reform was very generally admitted; he thought the people would most cheerfully pay a million of taxes in case of reform, which, in the pre- sent construction of the House, they demurred to pay. Mr. Canning concluded an eloquent speech against the motion by saying—" If I am obliged to choose between the capricious chances of an undefined Com- mittee and the ancient edifice which has so long up- held our rights, shielded our dignity, and secured our interests, I shall not hesitate-—' Stet fortuna domus.' Let the venerable fabric, which lias sheltered us for so many ages, and stood unshaken through so many storms, still remain unimpaired and holy; sacred from the rash frenzy of that ignorant innovator who would tear it down, careless and incapable of any sub- stitution." Mr. Tierney, Mr. W. Smith, and Mr. Ponsonbv spoke for the motion, and Lord Porehester against it. Oil a division there appeared for the motion— 115— against it 234. Petitions were presented from Liverpool, Worces- ter, and Canterbury, praying for a Reform in Parlia- ment, and arevisal of its proceedings by the House in the cases of Sir F. Burdett and Mr. G. Jones. The petitioners from Canterbury say, they cannot under- stand how so much severity was shewn 111 the cases of Sir F. Burdett and Mr. Jones, when Mr. Perceval was allowed to walk at large in the Hon. House.— [ This expression occasioned considerable merriment ill the House.] — The petitions were laid on the table. In the House of Commons, ou Friday last, Mr. Davies Giddy brought up the Second Report of the Committee of Privileges, searching for Precedents respecting the proceedings against Sir Francis Bur- dett. The report begins by stating the proceed- ings taken against the Speaker. It states, that ac- cording to precedent, in case of libels against the House, it was necessary for the purpose of restricting tlieni, to have recourse to prompt proceedings, and not to the dilatory forms of law. It appeared that the House of Commons treated libels as a contempt offered to the House, and punished the authors, whe ther Members of the House or not. That it appeared in the appendix annexed to the report, tliat in 170], a case in point occurred, aud in a conference had with the Lords, the privileges of the House were acknow- ledged. That in 1784, in the case of Ashley and Wright, the Lords confirmed the solemn decision of the Judges in favour of the privileges of the House of Commons. That they were acknowledged in Mur- ray's case in the King's Bench, in Crosby's ease in the Common Pleas, and in that of Flowers in the Exche- quer ; and that not a single decision to the contrary- had been given ill any of tint Courts of Justice. That it appeared from the appendix, that contempt offered to the House was punished, and the most eminent Lawyers ami enlightened Judges concurred in the power ofthe House of Commons. That it appeared from the precedents annexed, that the House of Com- mons generally committed for all contempt offered to it. Tiic Committee was therefore decidedly of opi- nion, that such privilege was essential to the freedom of debate, and essential to the State, and was consistent with the law of the land ; and that the Courts of West- minster- hall and the Courts of Quarter Session had the power of committing aud punishing for contempt, with the intervention of a jury. That the privileges of the House were established time immemorial by the best authority, and were as incontrovertible as any law ofthe land. Lord A. Hamilton's motion for expunging certain resolutions relating to the sale of seats, from the jour- nals of the House, was negatived without a division. Mr. Grattan then submitted his motion on the sub- ject of Catholic Emancipation, and concluded an im- pressive and eloquent speech by moving " that the petition of the Catholics of Ireland should be referred to a Committee of the whole House." Sir C. Hippisley seconded the motion in a speech of considerable length; but which, owing to the re- peated interruptions which the Hon. Member ex- perienced, by coughing, and sneezing, and cries of Question, could not be heard, though it lasted for more than two hours. The further consideration of the motion was ad- journed to Thursday next. Mr. Perceval, 011 Thursday night in the House of Commons, said, he had not accepted the salary of his office of Chancellor of the Exchequer, in conse- quence of his being in possession of the office of Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster ; he also said that Mr. Yorke had declined accepting the 20001. a year which was added to the salary of First Lord of the Admiralty, when Mr. Grenville held that office, 111 consequence of his ( Mr. Yorke's) appointment to the office of Teller of the Exchequer. The nett produce of the stamp duties 011 newspa- pers and almanacks, for the year ending the 5th of April, 1809, amounted to 278,8461. 6 « . ( id. The du- j ties on advertisements, for the same period, amounted to 106,2811. 3s. 8d. These sums do not include the duties 011 newspapers, almanacks, and advertisements in Scotland. A strong impression appears to prevail in Germany that peace is likely soon to be restored between Great Britain and France, and Bonaparte is repre- sented as being disposed to make very considerable sacrifices to bring about an approximation. We fear, however, that such an event is move distant than the continental politicians suppose. Bonaparte's pro- jects against the Ottoman Empire are gradually un- folding. General Marmont is forming an army on the Turk- ish frontiers, for the purpose of compelling the Porte to break her connection with this country, and to agree to exclude British ships from her territories. It is at length ascertained, that the important ques- tion now at issue between Sir Francis Burdett and the Speaker of the House of Commons, must come be- fore a British iurv. The following is a copy of the ride < Vf the Court of King's Bench, for leave for the defendant to plead several matters, upon the motion of Mr. Abbott:— Wednesday next after three weeks from Easter day, in the 50th year of King George the Third, IIURIIF. TT, Bart, against ABBOTT, M. P. Il is ordered, that the defendant have leave to plead several matters, to wit, NOT GUILTY to the whole declaration, and for further plea to the breaking and entering the plaintiffs messuage, and the assault and imprisonment mentioned in the first count, a justifica- tion under the resolutions of the House of Commons, that the plaintiff had been guilty of a breach of the privi- leges ofthe House, and was ordered by the House to be committed to the Tower of London ; and that the defendant, as Speaker of the House of Commons, is- sued his warrants accordingly, to the Serjeant at Arms, atteuding the House, and to the Lieutenant of the Tower: and for further plea to the assault and impri- sonment mentioned in the first count, the like justifica- tion.— Upon the motion of Mr. Abbott. BY THE COURT. This plea is not such as can support the asserted " omnipotence" of the House of Commons. Here we have 110 impeachment of the jurisdiction of the Court of King's Bench— that is recognized— and the House of Commons by its organ— the Speaker— pleads the general issue, not guilty— with a justification 011 two counts of the declaration. The Seijeant at Arms has not yet pleaded. The arguments in the Com- t of King's Bench on the plea in bar of Sir Francis Burdett's action against the Speaker of the House of Commons cannot be heard before the Sittings after Term, about the first week in July. Some years ago the noted Napper Tandy filed a declaration in the Court of Exchequer against the Speaker of the Irish House of Commons, for issuing a warrant for his ( Mr. Tandy's) arrest. Some proceed- ings were had ill the cause, but they were ultimately quashed on a motion made in the Court of Exchequer by Counsel on the part of the Speaker. A person has been lately employed ill copying these proceedings, for the purpose, it is supposed, of producing them in a British Court of Justice, as a precedent in the cause now depending between Sir F. Burdett and the House of Commons. At a Special Council held at Lincoln's Inn on Thursday last, the obnoxious rule of the benchers, that 110 person should be called to / lie Bar, who had written in newspapers for hire, was rescinded. MUNGO PARK.— By vessels arrived from Goree and Sierra Leone, we are enabletl to state, that so late as the month of March last considerable hopes were en- tertained that the celebrated and enterprising Mungo Park, so often reported to have lost his life, was still alive. The ship Favourite, of Loudon, Capairi Tru- man, is arrived at Plymouth from Goree. Previous to the departure of that v< , el, information had been received at Senegal, by a native of the Mantlingo country, who accompanied Mr. Park as far into the interior as Sego and Sansanding, that he was alive in the month of January. Colonel Maxwell, the Go- vernor of Senegal, had, in consequence of this infor- mation, directed that a decked boat should be imme- diately fitted out to proceed up the river Senegal, for the purpose of giving assistance to Mr. Park in his indefatigable exertions in exploring the continent of Africa. This account is further corrob : ited by a letter, . dated in March last, received by a vessel from Sierra Leone, from Dr. Douglas, who writes as fol- lows :— " Permit me to lay before you some information respecting Mr. Mimgo Park, which I was favoured with from an intelligent Maliomedan, whom I met at Goree, and who had acted as a guide to Mr. Park, from the time of his landing 011 tlie'continent of Afri- ca to his embarkation on the Niger. He slates, that the King of Sego had shewn much favour to Mr. Park, and that the report of his assassination there was un- true. He had passed far along the Niger without any molestation whatever from the natives. My inform- ant could not recollect the date ofhis embarkation 011 the Niger, bnt thinks it must be about three years ago. Mr. Park had taken four months provision for himself and two followers, with whom he intended to proceed to the eastward, and onwards as far as the Red Sea. Some travellers, who had fallen in with this guide, informed him, that about two 01- three months subsequent to Mr. Park's embarkation, he had been severely scorched in his breast by the burst- ing of a gun while firing at some birds, but that he passed Tombuctoo in the night by water. SPORTING.— One of the Four- in- Hand Club is said to be broken down, and that, after having himself tum- bled down 120,0001.!— The late SirCharlesTurner lias left ten thousand pounds, and the whole ofhis valuable horses, to his Stud Groom at Newmarket.— The box- ing match between Dutch Sam and Medley, is to take place Thursday se'nuight. Two other matches are to be fought the same day betwixt Cropley and Powers, and Daugherty and Burn. COURT OF CHANCERY, MAY 11. MONXHOUSE V. THE CORPORATION OF BEDFORD. — This was a bill filed to foreclose a mortgage, under the following circumstances:— The Corporation of Bedford, some years ago, borrowed on mortgage the sum of 1,2001. from Sir T. Barnard, of which sum, on his death, there remained 9001. which was paid off by Mr. Colquhouu, who then represented the Corpora- tion in Parliament, aud a receipt was given 011 the mortgage deed, setting forth that the money had been so paid by Colquhoun; who afterwards having be- come embarrassed in his circumstances, borrowed a sum of money from the plaintiff Monkhouse, and left in his luutds the mortgage deed as a security. The Corporation, in their answer, set forth that the sum of 900!. had been given to them by Colquhoim, after they had elccted him their Representative in Parlia- ment. His Honour the Master of the Rolls observed, that he would lay out of his consideration all argu- ments as to the bribery; but as the mortgage had been made over to a third party, the plaintiff, as a security for money advaneed by him, ht had no hesi- tation in saying that he had a right to recover. COURT OF KING'S BENCH, May 16. BILLINGS V. DUFFELL. This was an action brought by the plaintiff, for the recovery of the sum of 911. 6s. being the amount of certain bricks supplied by the plaintiff from his kilns, in Battersea Fields, in the county of Surrey. The order by defendant, and delivery of the bricks, were proved by witnesses in support of the case on behalf ofthe plaintiff when several witnesses were examined on the behalf of the defendant, who attempted to prove such bricks were agreed for, and had solely 011 account and for the use of one Prentis, who had be- come insolvent; but the plaintiff's case being very sa tisfactorily made out in the opinion of Lord Ellenbo- rougli, and the jury who tried the cause, a verdict was given for the above sum. Mr. Park and Mr. Marriot counsel for the plaintiff, Mr. Garrow and Mr. Cum- myns for tile defendant. Attorney for plaintiff, Mr. Edmonds, Crane- court, Fleet- street; Mr. Maymott, Blackfriars- road, for defendant. It is a curious fact, that the remains of Lord Col- lingwood are deposited in the very stone coffin which Cardinal Wolsev had prepared for himself. It had re- mained, as lumber, in a room adjoining to St. George's Chapel, Windsor; and, for its last purpose, was given as a present by his Majesty. A, soldier drowned himself in Norwich Jast week, because he could not obtain his discharge in order to get married 1— A man attempted to drown himself 011 Sunday in the Serpentine River ; a woman likewise tried to do the same: they were, however, both got out alive. An ox bred by Sir Thomas Mostyn, Bart, of Mostyn, in North Wales, has attained the astonishing height of upwards of 18 hands-, he is five yards and a half long, four yards iu girth, rarid though far from full fed, weighs two tons The house of P. L. Tatcman, Esq. at A nnesjey- Oreen, Bucks, was on Thursday night robbed of plate and other property to the amount of 2001. and the villains murdered an" old man of the name of Hunt, who, with his wife, was left in the care of the house, because he did not quickly give Hie key of some drawers. Mr. Goff, the tax- collector of Richmond, being 1,5001. in arrears, and unable to pay the money, was committed on Saturday to the Surrey county gaol. A great number of ancient silver medals were a few days ago found at the bottom of a deep moss ditch at West Calder, Edinburghshire. They arc in fine pre- servation, and bear the names of Marcus Aurelius, the Empress Fausta his wife, Domitian, Trajan, Hadri- an, and Pius. MR. GRF. VILLF.' S MINERALS.— In pursuance of a petition to the House of Commons from the trustees of the British Museum, this collection has been valu- ed by Doctors Babington anil Wollaston, C. Hatchett, Esq. and four other gentlemen, who report, that the whole collection consists of about 20,000 specimens; that the series of crystallized rubies, sapphires, eme- ralds, topazes, rubellites, diamonds, and precious stones in general, as well as the series of the various ores, far surpass any that arc known to them in the different European collections; and that the value of the whole is 13,7271. including that of the cabinets, which cost 16001.
