WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19. Dutch papers have readied town to ihe 7th instant. The terms of peace are said to have been agreed! upon between Russia and the Porte, by w hich the former power is to obtain Moldavia and a part of Wallachia. Advices from Amsterdam of the 7th inst. reiate that the House second in rank in thai city had suspended its payments, on account of the deficit occasioned by a large debt, undischarged, due from the Government. The failure was accelerated by the defalcation of two houses in Paris, v hicli had supplied the, exigencies . of the French Treasury, hut had not been repaid their advances. fome letters have been received frcm the United States, in'which it is asserted that the " mongrel revo- cation'of the edicts of Franco will only mislead the enemy;" and ft is asserted, that on the important sub- ject of the intercourse with Ihe two belligerent powers of Europe, the Southern states are uniformly amicable to France, and the Northern as consistently favourable to this country . The last account's from the West- Indies are of a most disastrous imlure. The B'cljjtte has brought accounts of a prodigious mortality, not. only among the troops, but likewise in many of the King's ships. The regi- ments tn Guadaloupe, Martinique, Dominica, and Gre- nada, have suffered the most, Palafox, the gallant defender of Saragossa, is said to be iu perfect health with his Uncle in Milan. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20. French papers to Ihe 13ih inst. have arrived in town. Thev are chiefly filled with fabrications from Ham burgh, Amsterdam, Dantz: C, and other places, of the distress which prevails iu England on account of Ihe failures which have recently taken place. They are very pathetic upon Ihe bankruptcies which have occur- cd here, but they make no nientioti of the failure of two of the first- rate banking houses nearly connccled • with the government, which we know have failed at Paris. The fad is, that of the bankruptcies that have taken place in England, for the last six months, nine- tenths of Ihem have been occasioned by Unwarrantable speculations, aud so far from the general interests of the country having been injured by such failures, we must question whethei the reverse of such a proposition might not lie maintained, and it might not be asserted, that our commercial world had undergone a wholesome purgation, and was on the whole, in a better condition lor having got rid of its peccant members. An article from Bayonne, of the 6th, says, that Gar darme was, on the 16th November, at Belmonte, on the road to Guarda, and Drouct, on the 24th, within three days march of Castel Branco. The expedition which had been so long preparing in the rivers Ems aud Jade, the object of which was sup- posed to be a coup- de- main against Heligoland, put 11 sea on Ihc 20th of Nov. It consisted of 12 gun- brig s and 24 gun- boats. Two days after, lord George Stuart, the Commodore on that station, received intel- ligence that the enemy were out, and immediately pro- ceeded in quest of them, with the Horatio frigate, I'az schooner, six gun brigs, and two gun- boats. On the 24th his Lordship got sight of the enemy, but unfor Innately was not able to close with them. Three of their gun- brigs, however, were driven on shore, rear Jade; Ihe rest escaped into Varel. I- ord George Stuarl, according to the last advices, was left at the mouth ol the Jade, watching the enemv. FRIDAY, DECEMBER SI.

The King of Bavaria has raised llie sequestration in his dominions on colonial produce; but it remains in force against English manu- factures.— In Denmark, Sweden, Naples, and every < ither part of the Continent under the influence of Bonaparte, his anti- commercial system is enforced with increasing rigour. The Urgency.— The following statement is given in some of the evening papers.— The Chancellor of the Exchequer, on Wednesday lasl, addressed a respectful letter to the Prince of Wales, inclosing for his Iloyal Highness's consideration, the plan of the proceeding for a Regency, w ith certain limitations, which it was his intention to submit to the House of Commons; and expressing a hope lhat he might be honoured with his Royal Highness's command to wait on him to know his pleasure on the subject. The Prince ol Wales signified to Mr. Perceval, that as no step had yet been taken on Ihe subject in the two Houses of Parliament, be ( lid not think it consistent with his respect for lhe two Houses to give any opinion on the course of - proceedings which had been submitted lo him.— On aformer occasion it was not until alter the Resolutions had been come to by both Houses, that the matter was submitted to him ; and then he had felt it lo be his duty lo express his opinion distinctly on the subject, and to that opinion he had ever since invaria- bly adhered; and the answer of his Royal Highness concludes with expressing his most earnest wishes that the speedy re establishment of his Majesty's health would make ani measure of this kind unnecessary.— This answer was sent to Mr. Perceval on Wednesday evening ; and of course no interview took place. The Prince of Wales communicated lo all the hi anches of Iris illustrious family the plan of the Regen- cy w hich had been transmitted to him, upon which, v e understand, the whole of the Royal Dukes, with one consent, drew up a Declar lion and Protest against the forin of proceeding, t and which they addressed to Mr. Perceval, for the information of Ministers at large. It staled in substance— That understanding from his Royal Highness thePrince of Wales, that it was intended to propose to the two Houses Ihe measure of supplying the Royal Authority, by the appointment of a Regency, with certain limita- tions and restrictions, as described ; they felt it to be their duly to declare, that it was the unanimous opinion of all the. male branches of his Majesty's family, that they could not view this mode of proceeding without alarm, as a Itcgenev so restricted was inconsistent with the prerogatives which were vested in the Royal Au- thority, ns much for the security and benefit of the Jieople, ns for the strength and dignity of the Crown ilself; and they, therefore, most solemnly protest against this violation of the principles which placed I heir Family on the Throne.

It was transmitted to Mr. Perceval late on Wednes- day night, or rather yesterday morning. To this Declaration and Protest we understand an Answer nas last night received by the Prinees from the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in which, after Hie usual recital of the tenor of the Royal Document, he pro- ceeds to sla'e, lhat he had submitted it to the consider- ation of his Majesty's confidential servants— that how- ever much they had to regret that the course they had adopted on I lie melancholy occasion of his Majesty's illness had not had Ihe good fortune to receive the ap- probation of Ihe illustrious persons, the male branches of the lloyal Family, yet they continued to consider it as the onlv It- gal and constitutional course in which they fcoulil be supported by precedent— that it was the course prescribed in the year 17S8- S, when it had not only been adopted, after long and painful discussion, by the two Houses of Parliament, but had received the tini- • t . j \ FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE.

Bourdtavx, December 7.— On the 5th and 6th of this month, from six o'clock in the morning till three iu the afternoon, all English confiscated merchandize which was found in tbe ma- gazines of the custom bouses, was publicly burnt. The people beheld with pleasure the execution of the law for the pveser- tion of the eternal liberty of the seas, and for the mainten- ance of the sacred rights of civilized nations. Advices are said tohave'been received this day from France, which btate that Bonaparte has signified publicly, that it never was his intention to recal his Berlin aud Milau Decrees, as intimated lo the American Minister in Paris, unless Great Britain, during the period prescribed, should rescind her Orders iii Council, and extinguish her system of blockade. The British Government having fr. iled lo comply with the in- vitation, the Berlin and Milan Deciees were still to be con- sidered iu full force against American and all other flags entering the poits of Fiance and ber dependencies. In thus changing the face of things wit'h America, Bonaparte alleges, that England having refrained from rescinding ber Orders in Council, or removing her blockade, the United States of Ameiica ought to have been prepared to maintain, by j'o- ce, her right to ' the navigation of the seas against any power whatever. A few gentlemen, part of the Committee of Merchants trading to America, this day attended at the office of Lord Wel'eslev, fur ihe purpose of obtaining an answer to a former application for an interview wiih his lordship, on Ihc subject ot the D-. crces and Oiders ill Council, ami the proceedings lately passed in America on that subject. I'hese gentlemen wi re officially informed, that Lord Wellesley had no answer at present to give. STATE OF HIS MAJESTY'S HEALTH.— The bulletins issued since our last are as follow : Decemb r 18.— His Majesty has passed a good night, and is much in the same state as he w as yesterday.

Pec. 21.— The King has had a very good night, and is better to day. Dec. 22.— His Majesty has passed a pretty quiet right, and is not materially different from his state yesterday. HOUSE OF LORDS— WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10. The House meet this dav agreeable to adjournment, when a con vet: a t io n si mi I n r to that which occurred in the Commons on Monday, look place.— The Earl of LIVERPOOL said, it was the intention uf Goveinniertt generally lo adupt Ihe precedent of 1788- 0 in tlje present melancholy conjunctuie of public affairs, nnd as the Report of their lordships' Committee was not in a state of readiness to be brought up, he thought that the eat liest opportunity for taking it into consideration won- d heThuisday next, on which day he wished their lordships to be summoned. Earl Spencer, tbe Eai I uf Lauderdale, and Lord Holland, contended against the precedent of 1788 9, and maintained that the proper course to he pursued would be immediately to address the Prince to take upon him the ili- tection of public atfaiis. Lord Grenville declared bis film adherence to the opinions which he held in 1788- 9, that the proper course of proceeding was by hill, and noi by address. No division took place ; but Lord Holland intimated t. is in- tention of taking the sense of Ihe House whenever the Re- solutions were bri- ught forward. On THURSDAY the llepoit was brought up, and laid upon jthe table. Lord HOLLAND hoped that, inwiiatever way Par- iament was to proceed, no time would he lo.- t iu proposing some specific measure upon the Report, as thedangers ol delay- were obvious ; for either tbe interest of the country must be abandoned, or the power of Ihe Sovereign must be usurped by Ministers. — Eail GROSVESOR was more friendly to the proceeding hv bill than by addiess, but deprecated any delay. The Duke of CLARENCE contended for the precedent of the Irish Parliament of 1789, and thought the mode by address would be inure consistent than that by bill. He thought pro- crastination would be as injurious lo the Monarchy, as it would be dangerous to the Constitution. — After some further conversation, in which the Duke of Norfolk, Lords Stanhope, Erskine, Lauderdale, and Daroley, took pari, ihe House ad- journed till Saturday. HOUSE OF COMMONS— THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20. A new writ was ordered for Brackley, in the room of G. Middleton, Hq. — Mr. PERCEVAL moved the order of the day that the House be called over. The gallery was ckaied during the call, which lasted about two hours ; after which an order vvas made, on the motion of Mr. Perceval, tor another Call of tho House on Monday tiie 31st.— The Ser- jeant at Arms was then ordered to lake into custody such members as had not attended the callol the House this evening. STATU OF IHE NATION.— THIS REGENCY. The House having gune into a Committee ot the vi hole House, to take into consideration the state of the nation, Mr. LUSUINGTON took ihe chair. Mr. PLRCEVAL tailed the attention of the Committee tothe melancholy state of his Majesty's health, a national calamity which was so severely felt by every individual in the kingdom, that he was convinced it was unnecessary for him to say any thing to rouse the feeling3 of the Hou^ e on the present oc- casion. The malady under which his Majesty was suffering vvas one which, even in private families, was felt and con- sidered as one of the greatest calamities; how much more so must it. be for a King, who, for upwards of half a century, had watched over the liberties and studied the happiness of ' he people ofthps* realm*, to" provide the means of supplv- • ng the defect of the personal exercise of the royal authority, arising from his Majesty's indisposition, in such manner as he ex: g ncy of the case may require." Upon this Re? o » hition there might, perhaps,, be some difference as to the wording, but he understood none to the'principle ; indeed thf principle s'eemed to- be supported hv everv thing, and unim- peached by ativ thing. He should, therefore, assume that it would not be denied, arid would pot anticipate anv opposition j to it. He would now read to the Hnuse Vis 3d. Resolution. 3d. Resolved, that for this pnspose, and for maintaining entire the authority of the King, it is necessary that the said Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons of the LFnited Kingdom, should determine on the means whereby the royal assent may he passed by the two Houses of Parliament, re- specting the exercise of the power and authority of tiie Crown, in the name and on behalf of the King, during the continuance of his Majesty's present indisposition."— The great andlead- • ng proceeding in this'Resolution should he by hill, and that : proceeding he had recommended to thfe House. The right hon. ( gentleman ( Mr. Pouspnby) had declared his intention of op- posing lhat mode of; proceeding, as being unconstitutional ; and said that, instead of a bill, h& should propose an address. The question for debate,' therefore, narrowed itself into that only, namely,' whether their proce" efting Shotild " be by bill or bv address* This question decided, the- next measure to be adopted tfas, that his Royal I fighrre- ss'th? Pr'rnce'of Wales-' should be appointed Rcgenlfor adnvnisiorviil-^ hf- affairs of the country, in the name of andduririgyihe. dn'disprkitiotU- of'ihe fCwg ; and next, that the Queen . should hove the gnmdian, ship. of the King's person ; and also that due precautions should be taken foi notifying his recovery, and that the rheans should be pointed out by zvhic. h he should remme his. authority on that event taking place; that the lime of the Regency should, have no limit, except the termination of his Majesty's disorder. From the statement of the late Dr. Willis* who attended his Majesty in his former illness, it appears that few persons recover in a shorter period than six weeks; that the average is five or six months ; and that the extreme of time is from 12 to IS months; arid if, at the ex- piration of thafrtime, some amendment had not taken place, there were then but little hopes " of recovery. Gentlemen would see the necessity of providing for t lie King's return to power, and he trusted the Committee would agreed with him that the peiiod to which thev might look forward for the King's recovery would not be too long'to restrain the power of the Regent, say 12 months. Amongst, tho^ e restrictions which should be imposed upon the Regent, during that limited time, he conceived the power of granting the Peerage rnirrht be suspended without any injury to the public service. Offices or pensions also, granted during the Regency, should be subject to the approbation of his Majesty on his recovery: and also that the Queen's management Of. the King's Household should then expire unless the Parliament should prolong it. Having thus stated a general outline of his plan, he should call the attention of the Committee distinctly to that point b ' fore it. The question to be considered now was, whether the mode to be adopted should, be by Bill or Address. The proceeding by Bill, it Was said, would be opposed by gentlemen opposite, as being derogatory to the honour of the Crown— inconsistent with the Constitution— and offensive to the Prince. He knew not better how to judge of a measure than by what had been before done in a ca- e like the present, ar. d which had always been held constitutional. A right hon, gentleman ( Mr. Sheridan) had alluded to the mode of proceeding at the Revolution iu 1638, hut that case was not the same as the present. The Committee would now- recollect, that though the royal functions were suspended, yet the Crown was not vacant; they would remember that they had not now to make a King, but to preserve his powers in reversion fhear, hear! J and to provide for the exercise of them ad interim ; and it vvas mo « t important that whilst they were providing for the security of the country they should also provide for the King's restoration to power f Hear, hear !) In 1788, the King la- boured under the same complaint, and the House had the same da: ies to perform; and they had performed them in the manner now proposed; a Bill passed through That Htfuse, and had been carried to the Lords and agreed to there , they had therefore the authority of Parliament in favour of what he now proposed. A Parliament was then held by Commission under the Great Seal, which was affixed to it by order of both Houses of Parliament; and in that Pailiament, held under that Commission, several Bills were brought in whilst the Regency bill vvas depending, and completed after the King's recovery. Did the King on his recovery deny the Acts of Parliament? No; on the contrary, alter his recovery, he continued the Parliament held under that Commission ; and iii a speech delivered, by Commissioners after his recovery, he alluded to the Commission so signed, under winch Parlia- ment had been assembled, and applauded the steps which had been taken foi the honour and security of his Crown and the good government of his people : and an Address, the very echo of ihe Speech which had approved those measures, vvas voted by the House nem con. and though 20 years had passed since, no Address, Protest, or Resolution had been heard of against those proceedings. Under these circum- stances, he trusted, the House now considered the mode of proceeding, by Bill, which he had proposed, as the right one. The right hon. gentleman ( Mr. Sheridan) had said the House might as well adopt the precedent of the Irish Parlia- ment. He ( Mr. P.) had shewn that the Britisn Parliament approved of the piecedent by Bill : but the Lord Lieutenant I of Ireland had not approved of the Address, and had even refused to bring it over. That, therefore, was not the Act of the Legislature ; it was merely the. Act of the two Houses of Parliament. Mr. Perceval concluded by a high compliment to the Prince of Wales, and by expressing a contident hope that Hie Houte would be of opinion' vfith him, that the mode he proposed was preferable to an Address, and agree in the Resolutions he had proposed. The first Resolution was put and agreed to nem con. On the Second Resolution being put, Sir F. BUP. DETT pro- tested against every thing done by the House relative to the suspended state of the Government; and against every thing new proposed by the right hon. gentleman. The proposition now made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer was a mere delusion— a mere shapi. His object was to make a King, which he cauld carry, about in his pocket—( A loud laugh). The King, he continued, ought to be a great and efficient Magistrate: and the safety of the country tequired, that a permanent piovision should be made for the due exercise ol the Government; and it was treason against the Constitution to suffer the royal power to continue suspended or curtailed. The second Resolution was then agreed to. On the third Resolution being put, Mr. PONSONBY said, he entirely concurred in every thing said by Mr. Perceval on the subject of the calamity with which his Majesty was afllicted, and the wish that a speedy recovery might take place; but he thought at the time that the course pursued by the House in 1788 vvas an unconstitutional one, and he thought so now. The person who now filled the Throne was incapable of ex- in what manner the p^ wcr was to be given. The right hon. gentleman's argument vvas merfely precedent ; but he did not attempt to reason in favour; of it. or justify the precedent. He argued only bn authority ; and authority against reason was absurd, and should never be quoted. That precedent, of 1783 was the most unjust and unconstitutional that ever was adopted by the Parliament of this country. The proceeding implied that the King could do a thing which it was acknow. ledged he vvas wholly incapable of doinsr. It Was also unjust, o. u account of the - restrictions attempted to be imposed on the Prince of Wale » . If at the age of 48 years, his Royal High- ness ought. to be restrained in the exercise of his power, he must be altogether unfit to govern the country, and ou^ ht to be excluded from the kingly office* Were the present Minis- ters capable of managing the affairs of the country in a way to meet its exigencies ? The right hon. gentleman, no doubt., might look upon himself as one of the blessings of the coun « try:— t( But," said Mi. Ponsonby, " I feel no gratitude to him for the blessings he affotds us ; I know of no blessings he has given this country; and J would look upon the moment of his departure from power, as one of the best days England ever saw."— The right hon. gentleman concluded with moving, as an amendment—'' That an humble Addiess. be presented to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, requesting'him to take upon him, during the indisposition of his Majesty, and no longer, the Government of this Realm ; and that he would administer the same under the stile and title of Prince Regent of Great Britain aud Ireland."— Mr. P. said, if this amend- ment was carried, he had some other resolutions to propose. Mr. CANNING said, that' in his opinion the question then before the Committer' was, whether or not thev should adopt that course proposed by his right hori. friend ( Mr. Perceval) for supplying the defect in the royal authority, or whether they should proceed by Address, at proposed by the right hon. gentleman opposite. Under all circumstances, he thought it. better to follow the precedents of 1788, since ( if any such case should occur in future) it would he a strong guide to Parlia- ment to see the same precedents established by two different Parliameuts. That restriction which he thought absolutely necessary ( and perhaps it ivas the only one which was ubsolutely necessary) was the appointing a proper provision for the safety of the King, which cannot be committed to a Regent. As to tbe other particular restrictions they will come to be argued at a more proper season. The right hon. gentleman concluded hy saying, that he would give his vote most cordially for following the steps taken in 1738 ; not that he saw no objec- tions to those measures, but because he found none, nor had been shewn any that were better. Lord TEMPLE strongly prefetred a Legislative Act before the Address proposed by Mr. P. In the course of his argu- ment, he contended thaT. by au Address, his Royal Highness could not be known in any of the Courts of Law. If it was lawful for them to supply the defect of the kingly power, it was equally legal to make u> se of tbe Great Seal for that ( purpose, the Great Seal being only a symbol of the royal authority. Lord JOCELYN, the ATTOTNEY and SOLICITOR GENERAL, , Mr. CHOKER, and Lord CASTLEREAGH, supported the. motion ' ( or a Bill: and Mr. ADAM, Sir S. ROMILLY, Mr. HORNF. R, | ami Mr. WHITEHEAD, contended for the mode of Address, j The question being . loudly called for, at half past three the I House divided— Against the Amendment l269 — For it 157— j Majority for Ministers 112. j '{' he original motion was then agreed to, and at four o'clock the House adjourned. FRIDAY, DECEMBER V. j The House was thinly attended this evening, but a long debate ensued oij bringing up the Report of the Resolutions ' for supplying the present deficiency of the Roval Functions. ! The first Resolution of the Committee was agreed to. On the I motion for agreeing to the second, the previous question was j moved by Lord W. RUSSELL; which upon a division vvas nega- tived by 98 to 1.5. Tne others were afterwards agreed to, j and at half past one o'clock the House adjourned till to- morrow. Alter the gallery was cleared, Mr. C. WYNN asked Mr. Perceval whether, in the event of the House agreeing to the restriction which would deprive the Regent . of the nomination of the officers of the household, he pioposed TO follow the plan given notice ot by Mr. Pitt in 1788, of allowing to the Regent an additional regal establishment, and imposing fresh taxes to defray the expense of it? To which Mr. PERCEVAL answeied in the affirmative. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22. The Speaker took the chair at half past one, having formed a House— On the motion of Mr, Secretary Ryder, Lord CLIVE vvas sent with a message to the Lords, requesting a con- ference on the subject of the Regency. After aoout an hour's absence, in consequence of the non- arrival of the Lord Chancellor, LordCuvn returned to theComtnons, and reported at the Bar, that the Peers had agreed to meet tbe Commons in conference,— Mr YORKS then moved that a Committee be appointed to conduct the conference. The question vvas put, and the ten members following were appointed the Commit- tee : Lord Clive, Mr. Secretary Ryder, Mr, Yorke, Mr. Dundas, Mr. Wallace, Sir J. Nichol, Mr. Banks, Sir E. Nepean, Mr. Bathurst, and Mr. A. Cooper. After conferring with the„ Loids, as usnal in suchcases, in the painted cham- ber, the Committee returned to the House, and Lord CLIVE reported, on the House being resumed, that the Lords and Commons had conferred, aud that the result was, that the Commons shuukl lay the iesolutions they had passed be- fore the Lords, at the same time requesting a concurrence with the same. In consequence, the Committee had left a copy with the peers. The House then adjourned until Friday next. HO USK OF LORDS. After the return of the Lord Chancellor from theconference with the lower House, Lord LIVERPOOL moved that the House should adjourn until Wednesday, which was ordered accord- ingly.

Tliis venerable gentleman ( who retained his faculties ti. il within a few weeks of his decea- e) was father to th< » present Lord Bishop of Lincoln, nnd vvas greatly esteemed for his cheerfulness of temper, by a numerous circlc of friends, during a residence ot near 70 years in that town.

In 1788, the country had beeu placed n precisely the s& me situation in which it was at present; land he apprehended, the proceedings adopted on that casion, would point out the line ot conduct which the House ought now to adopt. Of the light of the two Houses of Parliament to take ste. pS for supplying the loss of the royal authority, a douot of which existed ut that time, he did not understand there war. now a question ; and as there did not now exist that rage of party which, in some case*, had almost disgracsd the proceedings of 1788, he trusted the discussion of the pieseut important question would be wisely conducted, and successfully terrnin. ited. The first proposition would call for their judgment ou the fact of the King's illness, and his incapacity to attend to public busiue* s. This the House would decide upon, and enu r on their Journals.— The 2d. pro- position would be expressive of the duliesof the House aiising out of lhat situation.— Aud the 3d. would go to the form ol the proceedings to be adopted.— Befoie he went into the pro- ceeding he would stale the tiist proposition, as follows : " That it is the opinion of this Committee that his Majesty, by his present indisposition, is prevented from coming lo nw Parliament, and from attending to public business, aud that the personal exercise of the royal authority is for the present interrupted."— On this resolution he thou^ gnt no doubt could be enieitaiued ; aud if any was entertained gentlemen had only to refer to the lepoit of the evidence taken before the Committee. And here he could not but observe, iliat the Report ot the Committee afforded the same reasonable grounds for entertaining hopes of his Majesty's ultimate itcovery, which the Report frcm tbe Privy Council held out, and also that tltat recovery- wight be expected to take place at no great distance of time. Proceeding upon precedent, he tliould then pr< potc the 2< S Resolution, which w as as tollo. vs : " l2d. That it > s the opinion of this Committee that it is the right and duty of the Lords Spiritual aud Temporal, and of ( he Commons of the United Kingdom now assembled, and Lwfully, and fully, and freely representing all the estates of Roy al Assent to a Bill in the name of him who was incapable of giving it:— to make incapacity capable. To provide for the lompetent exercise of the royal functions, it was necessary to supply to the King the competence of ex- ercising them with the same power as the King ought to pos- sess. It was not in the power of tiie two Houses to usurp the Great Seal, as the right hon. gentleman intended to do. The Great Seal was the King's Seal, aud the Houses had nu au- thority to order it to act, as in cases of lejislation. He denied tiie assettiou of the right bun. gentleman, that this course of ' proceeding was conformable to the practice of our Constitu- tion. No such thing was done at the Restoration, or Revolu- tion. At the Restoration, the first thing done was to consider the King's letter ( rum Breda. After this, an application was made by tlie Commons to the Lords, to put the Great Seal into activity ; and it was remarkable that Ihe Lords would not consent: they would nut meddle with tbe Great Seal, or order it to act, and it was not put into activity. At the time of the Revolulii , i, when it must he admitted the nation bad intetests at stane much greater than at any period since, because the liberty and religion of the country were endan- gered, the Parliament were determined to place the Crown on the head of the Prince and Princess of Orange, who were proclaimed merely on the declaration of the two Houses, to which the Prince and Princess were supposed to give their assent; and the men who acted ill those days, did not think of making tne Great Seal speak in the absence of the per- uns to w hum it belonged. Betides, tbe Act of Henry Vill. made it high treason to counterfeit the King's Sign Manual. In the same reign an Act of Attainder was passed against the Duke of Norfolk; and in the subsequent reign, the Act was leveifitd, because ii was declared that the King had not given his assent to it. Tue a.' sent had beeu given by commission ; but the King had not signed that commission witb his hand. The Act was therefore declared to be void, and of no effect. It was a monstrous doctrine to attempt such a fraud anil im- posilion on the cuunirv a* tile right lion, geuileinan proposed, when the Constitution already pointed out tbe proper mode. II., asked if the Addresses of the two Houses would nut be giving authority to llie Prince? Certainly they would ; and why then give autnoriiy iu any otbei way. This mode would not prevent any regulations which it mi^ tit be advisable to adopt. The Prince must derive the power he was to exercise fioai the two Houses ot Parliament; and the question now was, IBOStSCrtDt LONDON", Monday Night, Dec. 24, 1810. " Windsor- Castle, Dec. 23. — His Majesty is not quite so well this morning, although he had several hour's sleep y. ster'lav evening." " Dec 24.— His Majesty has had a sleepless night, and is not = o well to- day," No'hing has been finally determined by the British Go- vernment respecting the rescinding of the Orders m Council. And it is said that Ministers do nut consider the Berlin and Milan Decrees to have been revoked in effect; and therefore matters will rest as they do at present. By a vessel arrived from Norfolk, in Virginia, advices have been received to the 25th of Noveinbet, which state that since the return of Mr. Armstrong to America from France, be had several interviews with the President, and of course had com- municated to him fullv what he conceived to be the real in- tention of France. The private letters on this subject state, that it would appear, there was nothing cheering or consoling in General Armstrong's information; that some hints had been thrown out bv the Government party, that they would rather the publication had not been published, and not u woul had transpired against England in the national intelligencer since the interview with General Armstrong. The Maria, fioin Dieppe, is arrived at Itamsgate in distress She has brought a messenger, with dispatches from Mr. Russell, the American Charge d'Affaires at 1' aris : when their contents shall have transpired, it is probable they will throw some new light on the affairs between France and America.— The Maria iirst appeared off Deal, where, it is said, she was refused to land the messenger on board, which induced her to bear away for Ram- gate harbour. The private accounts received to- day from Windsor state, that independent of his Majesty's mental disorder, he has had a seveie bodily atltack, which bas considerably reduced him. It is with great regret we communicate intelligence of the lo.- s of two fine frigates, the Nymphe aud Pallas, on Tuesday night, at the mouth of the Frith. On Saturday night or early yesterday morning, St. Paul's Cathedral was robbed of the whole of the church service of plate, of considerable value. The difficulties ai d ingenuity required to get at the property, prove the villians to bave been complete masters of their profession. The weight of the plate carried off is 1601) ounces. These articles, or most of them, were used on Friday last at a private ordination hy the Bishop of Lincoln; aud efter they were done witb, they were locked up in the plate- room, immediately over the vestry, in iron chests, which had on tliem padlocks, as well as other locks.

Tuesday se'unlght, the Rev. C. A. A. Lloyd, Rector nf Wbittington, and the patron of the Lancastrian school in that village, gave an hospitable repast tu the scholars, amounting to 124 boys and 108 girls. The Committee lor managing the Lancastrian School nt r state ,( Sep. tember, 1809, when the School was first opened. Of thi, number 154 have left School, and 400 aie now in the habit of regular attendance.— The Boys are classed according lo their proficiency in reading. Many instances have occurred of Buys having been raised four, and, in some instances, live classes higher than when they were first admitted —. 1 period of less than lourtecn munths.-— At the opening of ihe School, 41 Boys bad learnt to write: all who were then admitted. < aa now write tolerably w'ell, and the number of those now in the School that have not begun to write is only 22.— There were at first only six buys vino had begun Arithmetic ; this number lias since been increased to 91.— The Committee attribute the proficiency and excellent order of the buys, to the parti- cular system of Education which has ueen adopted. We noticed in our last paper, that a patent had been granted to Mr. Payne, banker, of Bath, for a new method of pieventing forgeries, defacing, and altering Bank noies, It is stated to us ( fiom authority we cannot question), ns a circumstance rather extraordinary, that a fust cousin of Mr. Payne's had, ten years ago, thoughts on the snine subject, j and mure than one interview with Mr. Abiahan Neivland respecting it. His terms were nqt acceded to; the project is now under seal, which he believes bas never been made known to any human being, not even lo his relation.— We hope, however, the next patent will he granted to some gentleman, still more ingenious, who shall contrive to bave guineas in lieu of notes.

( See the Salopian Journal, of November 21.) Let INFIDELS pursue life's various toys ! Such minds reach not to things of solid worth ! Hut CHRISTIANS should aspire to nobler joys, Than they whose only hopes are here on earth. Then shall each instance of departed friend, Whose death was sudden, or hv slow disease, Serve to remind us of our own like end, And make us strive our gracious God to please. Some pious sentiments still more, in rhyme, Here let us add ; which good men will revere : Pew days elapse . before the Seol of TIME Hill close the Letter of the present year. O may the records in that letter found, When read in heav'n, at the Judgment- day, Prove, to our blessing, that our faith was sound ; Our anxious care God's precepts to obey. While here we travel, on the road to bliss, let's make our journey pleasant as we can ; The sole ambition of our lives be this, To give " GOD glory," shew " Good- will io Man." Would Christians act by this unerring rule, Then WATtS, and various troubles, soon would cease; This world, would be, like Paradise, a school Whose sov'reign teacher is the Prince of Peace. O may that teacher here so rule our hearts, With the sweet precepts of bis heav'nly lore, That we, in Heav'n, may all sustain our parts, Iu praises, hallelu- yahs, evermore. REFLECTOR. THE LITERARY TOURIST. On Tea Drinking; BREECHES ANO PETTICOATS, MR. EDITOR, On a pilgrimage through the valley of the shadow of death ; journeying onwards, towards eternity, at a degree pf velocity in time's motion equal to 14 hundred and 40 minutes between sun- rise and nun- rise ; my soul riding at ease in a well- con- structed bodily carriage ; I hove lately endeavoured to be- guile some part of the dreariness of progression thiough that valley, by perusing the narrative tours of other travellers; tome in Asia ; some in America; and some in Europe. It is long since I roamed over Africa; aud VAII. LANT was my last conductor from the Cape of Good Hope.— In less ambiguous phraseology, I hove lately employed part of my existence, ill perusing the travels of Hoi, CROFT, abridged by FULTON ; and having been much gratified thereby, 1 recommend it | ' to the readers of your Journal. Probably, sir, some of those readers hove been in Holland; And certainly a great many have not been in that country. To the1 latter, the extracts I am now going to send you will afford entertainment. From the " former, I hope to see, in your paper, at a future day, an answer to my queries and doubts, in the comments 1 shall subjoin to those extracts.— They relate to'Dutchmen ; in the first instance describing their houses, and their habits of neatness, and ceconomy; the latter giving us a view of them in their dress, on Sundays and holidays. Mr. Ho'croft proceeds, in Ihe " following language, to por- tray a Dutchman. " View the minuteness of his osconomy, ihe solicitude of his precaution, and the inflexibility of bis methodical prudence ! who would nut pronounce him incap- able of great enterprise ? He builds himself a dwelling ; it is a hut in size, a palace in neatness. It is unavoidably situated among damps, upon a fiat, aud perhaps behind the banks of a sluggish canal; yet he writes upon it, " my delight; country pleasures; country prospect;" or some inscription lhat might characterize the vale of Tempe, or the' Garden of Eden. He cuts his trees into fantastical forms, bangs his awning round with small bells; and decorates his Sunday Jacket with dozens of little buttons. Too provident to waste his sweets, he cunningly puis a bit of sugar candy in his mouth, aud drinks his tea as it melts; one morsel serves, let him drink as long as he pleases." P. 20. We now come to observations on the general costume or dress of the lower classes, in Holland, decked in their holiday finery. " Broad pewter and silver buckles ; large and • mall buttons, both in excess, and both of ancient usage; Some with short vests, and others with coals down to their heels, each of them fitting close, and shewing the waist; projecting hips, the men wearing EIGHT or TEN pair of breeches, the women at least as many PETTICOATS; stockings of various colours, not excepting purple, red, and yellow ; peasant gills in short jackets, with their gold ornaments, and rich Brussels lace; tobacco- pipes various in their form and size; and coun- tenances with a frequent tinge of the livid. These are a few, of the many maiks which catch the stranger's eye, and characterize the people." P. 42. In both these extracts, the words in italics are those only which have to far excited doubts in my mind as strongly to question their credibility. With retpect to the sugar- candy whim of Mynheer Nic Frog, and perhaps of his lady too, ( but the statement does not include ihe fair sex) I have this to ask— does he live upon tea only ; does he take no solids with this fluid ? If so, it may be allowed somewhat more credit with a critical reader; but, if he take, as we do, bread and butter, 1 think Mr. Iloleroft should have told us how he disposes of the motsel of sweet at that employment of the muscles in nnd about Ihe mouth, called mastication. For imbibition and mastication are dif- feient actions. Does he take it out, as the tobacco chewers do their quids ; or has a Dutchman some snug retired corner in the mouth, whereinto he pushes the luscious bit till the solids are gone down by deglutition ; and then says " come foith, my sweet one, to meet your friend from China ?" 1 have bid the pleasure of being in Mr. Holcroft's company; and have conversed with him more than once; and making due allowance for some of that vanity which is often as per- ceptible in men of celebrated talents as in women of celebrated beauty, 1 must without reluctance confess that 1 think Thomas Holcroft was a pleasant, intelligent man; and whose death I regretted as a loss to human society ; but, in this instance, I incline to think lhat he has either indulged a luxuriant fancy, and fibbed a little to amuse his readers; or, he lias been im- posed on, by some fibbist, or fibber, and has shewn more faith respecting articles of diet, than he did concerning articles of religion. For Tommy, ' tis well- known, presum'd to be, Un Esprit fort; for rhyme, Un for I d'Esprit; or a man of strong mind; and therefore he either would not or could not credit those theological aitides which many persons, and those too not remarkable for any deficiency in strength of intellect, either could or would believe, or, at least 3Vow their belief of them. The same doubt applies, and the some language, as just used, will sene, concerning Ihe ten pair of breeches and the ten petticoats. I have certainly seen, on the stage, ihe grave- digger, in Hamlet, pull off several w aistcoats, to spoil the effect of tragical impressions ; but I do not credit that an dconomi cal Dutchman, would indulge extiavagancc so far as to wear at once such a ii/ fcr abnndance of super- vestments. The condition of the breeches and petticoats, Mr. H. either forgot, or designedly omitted, to mention, such as whether they were all tolerably new, nr whether Mr. or Mrs. Frog made it a rule to carry all their wardrobe, the wear and tear of several years, at once nn their persons ; as they become older their garments must necessarily be larger, and eveiy new pair ol breeches, or every new petticoat, must cost more than the former, supposing Hie qualify and price per yard to be the same as before.— That there must be gradations in size is beyond all doubt; and therefore this conjecture of its being a successive series of drapery, joining the dress of years past with the present, must be admitted; or the extravagance of the Dutch must in this respect be allowed. The ulrum horum is clear. Another point which renders the statement dubious, or questionable, is, that the naiuial formation of the Hollanders docs not require Ihe augmentation of much diapery to give them prominent hips. The muscles from the loins to the kneis are raiely known lo be remarkable for gracihty or slendcrness ; they have commojily bulk eiioiigh to gratify, one would think, even the eye oi taste of a Dutchman. To soy that an English gentleman is Dutch built ( I put the ladies ont of qurston in this instance) affords strong ptesumplive evidence, cr is commonly considered as equivalent to saying, that the gentleman, so described, is, in leg, thigh, and hip, tolerably fleshy. 1 thould feci pleasure if those who reply about the sugar- csn. iy tea drinkers, would also say something about tbe decade of covering for ladies' and gentlemen's—( what shall 1 say i) hips iu Holland. If they weie thus covered with velvet, the ph rose of " sitting upon velvet," would be more appli- cable in the United Provinces than in any other country. 1 should think that Holland must be a charming country fm tailors aud mantua makers; and if there ever happena umber dis- turbance with the Snips in this countiy, ut the representation of any play or foi'ce, I should vote for their being sent— not fo Coventry, hut to Holland. This, sir, is my second letter sa ' a literary Tourist;" and therefore I again sign, Your's respectfully, PERCAUTUS. HIS MAJESTY. Substatfce of the Report of the Committee of the House of Cominons. The Physicians were unanimous in their opinion that tbe state of his Majesty's health was such as to rendei him in- capable of coming to Parliament, or of attending to any kind of public business. Dr. REYNOLDS said, in answer to a question as to the pro- bable lime of his Majesty's recovery---" 1 think the King is much in the same state in which I saw him in the latter end of the year 1188, and beginning of 1789. At that time his Majesty was recovering, and was quite well in the beginning of March. But his disorder varies so, that when we See the King going on a little better for two or three days, we are sanguine ; and if there comes a relapse, it throws us back again ; it. is impossible to give any positive or decided opinion. Dr. M. BAILME.— After various questions, much the same as those put by the Privy Council, and some enquiries as to the inteiview between his Majesty and tbe Chancellor, the Doctor stated, that his body has hardly been at any time perfectly free from indisposition. That if there was precisely the state of mind which the King has, without bodily ailment, there was altogether a less chance of the King's le'covering, than if he had the bodily ailment just stated ; sometimes, however, that bodily ailment has been very little. The King's age renders his recovery less probable, than if he were a younger person. The King, at 72, is stronger and younger than many persons at 62, and therefore may have a better chance than most persons would have ot the same period of life. He thought that, in the earlier periods of an indis- position like the King's, blindness would probably be an ad- vantage ; that it would lessen tbe excitement; but when a j person, afflicted like the King, goes on towards recovery, he conceived the want of sight would be a disadvantage, because he would be deprived of many amusements that would occupy his mind, and assist in tbe complete recovery. What he now says, however, cannot, under the circumstances which pe- culiarly attach to the King's situation, his defect of sight, and his age, form any satisfactory conjecture, as to the pro- bable duration of the King's illness. Thinks the circum- stances are such, as to render it likely lhat the present in- disposition will be longer than some of the foimer. Never knew but one person who was affected with this disorder, who was as old as the King, aud that person saw, but did not re- cover. Has rather less sanguine expectation of his Majesty's ultimate recovery, now, thau at the period when examined before the Privy Council. Never thought it likely his Majesty wouM recover soon; and most probably it will be longer than he at one time thought it would ; for there has been another attack since he was before examined ; and the remission since the last attack has been hardly so complete as some of the former ones were. Believes his Majesty's affection for the deceased Princess, and grief during her illness, to have been the cause of his Majesty's indisposition ; which, upon the whole, he considered as rather a favourable ciicumstance. It is better to know some fixed cause for the complaint, and that the cause should have ceased, which it has done in the present instance. Dr. HEBERDEN.— In reply to a question about the King's being informed that his Physicians were coming to town to be examined, and who informed him, Dr. II. said, he understood it to have been Dr. Reynolds. Believed it was owing to that cause that bis Majesty had a little hurry upon him at the time he saw him ;— but not an incoherent talking. Was called to attend his Majesty in his last illness, on the 12th of February, and his Majesty first presided at a Council on the 23d of April following; expected his illness, in Ihe present case, to follow nearly the same character as in that. Sir H. HALFORD stated Ihe last time the Queen saw his Majesty was on the 29th of October; her Majesty was the last of the fvoyal Family who had seen him. The Lord Chancellor twice; and Mr. Perceval once. The Chancellor's first visit was on the 29th of October, the second lust Wednesday. Upon being infoimed the Chancellor was come to Windsor, the King desired to see him. This was the first interview. Exammant informed the King of his arrival, and introduced the Chancellor; all the other Phy- sicians being either present or in the next room.— The King expressed great satisfaction at the interview: but it had no beneficial effect upon his mental health.— On the morning preceding the second interview, Sir 11. found the King involved in a gieat many misconceptions, and he took the iibert- y of using the Chancellor's name as a medical expedient. " It occurred to him that tbe mention of his name would extricate his Majesty from those errors, and it had the effect. In consequence tie ventured to say, that it was pro- bable Ihe Chancellor would be at Windsor within a day or two; feeling convinced that the temporary restraint under which his Majesty would hold a conversation with the Chan- cellor might be of use in the future conduct of himself.— On that ground, he proposed that his Majesty should see the Chancellor when he next came. Has reason to believe that some beneficial effect resulted from this interview; as through- out the day his Majesty alluded to ttie conversation several times, and seemed to he less under the influence of error.— Does not think the benefit altogetberlbst now.— Mr. Perceval saw Ihe King- on the 29th of- October, at his Majesty's desire. The interview lasted about six or seven minutes ; and no in- jurious effect was produced. The Physicians - left the room when the second interview took place; because it seemed desirable the Chancellor should form his judgment uninflu- enced by the presence of any other person, aud be the better able to state to Parliament what the state of the King was — Dr. Willis expressed an apprehension that it might be injurious. Dr. R. WILLIS said he entertained confident hopes of his Majesty's recovery, but could not form any judgment of the duration of his Majesty's illness. Would certainly have ob- jected had he known it was proposed the King should see the Chancellor-; and thought no beneficial effect was produced by it, nor was be aware of any prejudicial effect: His Majesty had a remarkable good night after the interview. Has hail persons under insanity of the King's age, not per- haps under derangement simiiar to his. Considers the- King's derangement more nearly allied to delirium than insanity.— In delirium the mind is entirely employed on past impres sions, which rapidly pass in succession, resembling a person talking in his sleep, ' IN insanity theie may be Irttle or no disturbance in the general constitution— the mind is occupied on some fixed idea, aud adheres to it in opposition to the plainest evidence of its falsity. Taking insanity and delirium as two points, would place derangement of mind between them. His Majesty's illness partakes more of the delirium than of Ihe insanity. When he first saw his Majesty, on the 6th of November, he was perfectly unconscious of surrounding ob- jects; that, however, was not his state oil Tuesday last; on which day there was derangement. His Majesty's disoi^ Ur has never borne the character of insanity ; it r. ever gets beyond derangemefit, according to tbe scale just laid down. This applies to the illness of 1801, as well as to the present. The King is far from being in a good sta'te Of health, at this time. The symptoms of bodily indisposition aie fully sufficient to account tor all the derangement of mind, which is at pieseirt perceived in his Majesty. Provided noconsequenees are seen to arise fiom Ihe repetition of the disorder, should attach no importance to the patient's having had previous repeated at- tacks of mental disorder; and, in his Majesty's case, lias nut obseived any consequences of the kind alluded to. Being asked whether the Chancellor knew, before be was introduced to the King, that he ( Di. W.) concurred, upon the whole, in thinking it wotud lie better he should see the King, thau that he should not? - Dr, W. said, having started the objections which I did, to Ihe Chancellor's admission, I proposed going to the King, lo see in what state of expectation his Majesty was ; knowing that he was apprised of the Chancelloi's visit to Windsor. I found him then in such state of expectation, that it was a doubt whether as much irritation would not aiise from keeping the Chancellor away, as from admitting him ; anil 1 therefore assented, as a choice of evils, that the Chan- cellor should go iu.— Ilia Majesty's complaint being more nearly allied to delirium than insanity, it is on that account much more easily cured. Does not know that lelapses are necessarily more to be upprehended on the recurrence of the malady, than alter the period of the attack ; but it has cer- tainly taken place in this instance.— Being asked, " If a patient had been under his care more than once, would he not expect the return of that patient more thau after the first attack ?"— Certainly. On Monday, Dr. BAILLIE was again examined, at his own request, to supply some omissions in his former examination. The following questions were then put to him .— Q. In whose custody do you apprehend ( he King now is ? A. Principally in the custody ( if 1 may use the phrBse) ot Dr. Willis.— Q. When did you see the King ?— A I saw the King this morning.— Q. What was the stale of his Majesty's health ? — A. He was, upon the whole, a little tetter, I thought, this morning; his pulse was less frequent than it has been for the last two ui llnee days ; and 1 thought him much less hurried, and what iie said was more connected, liioie like oulinary conversation. Upon tbe whole, I should say, he was a little better this morning. General Clavering.— This hero, whose evidence in the case of the Duke of York, and whose committal to New- gate on account of that evidence, our readers must well recollect, has again presented himself to public notice. On the 7th instant, he sent a letter to Lord Folkestone, stating that there is in " The Rival Princes" a letter signed " Folke- stone," which takes an unwarrantable liberty with his name; and, assuming that his lordship could not be the author, he says:—" 1 hope your lordship will assist me in endeavour- ing to discover the person who has presumed to shelter himself under your title, being satisfied that you must concur with me in opinion, that he is a most malicious and impertinent scoundrel." Lire! Folkestone, in an answer transmitted the same day, through Mr. Lushington, avowed the letter in question, and added, " the epithets you apply to the sup- posed unknown author of that letter are grossly false, and unbecoming the character of a gentleman to use." Early Ihe next morning, the General called on Mr. Lushington, and put into his bauds a letter, expressing his determination not to challenge Lord Folkestone, lest lie should shelter himself under his Parliamentary privilege ; but intimating his readi- ness to accept of one from bis lordship, in the following terms : " If any man who, Unprovoked, has- attempted to assassinate me, should think fit to invite me to the field, 1 will attend for tbe avowed purpose of destroying him, or fall- ing in the attempt; to accomplish which, such combat shall not be agreeable to usage oil trifling points, at the vugue dis- tance of 12 paces, but shall either be decided with the broad- sword, or with pistols, the muzzles in contact with each other; and if I should have the good fortune of meeting in public any ma n who shall have presumed to say or to write ' that I have acted unbecoming tbe character of a gentleman,' the strength of my cane shall be tried upon his head." Mr. Luihington declined being present at a meeting of this san- guinary description. He communicated the General's letter to Lord Folkestone, and the same day apprised the General that his lordship waived his privilege, ami would meet on the usual terms. General Claveriug, at this interview , informed Mi. Lushington, " that he had, for three weeks, carefully de- liberated upon the line of conduct he should pursue, and from that," as above stated, " he would not swerve ; that he did not consider this a common case— not a difference upon slight points, which eoulil be settled in the usuat mode; that if he went Out, he went fully determined to exterminate Lord Folkestone, or to be exterminated himself: he repealed, that he went with the same disposition as to meet an enemy in the field; he considered his injury so great that he would not leave the decision to chance."— In the sequel, however, the General called in tlie advice of a Captain Smith, of the Navy, between whom; and Mr. Lushington, the following agreement took place, to which their principals assented,— " General Clavering is sensible that the letter he wrote to Lord Folkestone contained very improper expiessions, which were dictated by the warmth of irritated feelings, but which, upon cool reflection, he retracts and disavows."—" Lord Folkestone considered it as impossible, whilst those letters remained dis- avowed, for him to say any I hing respecting his letter publish- ed in the Rival Princes; but those tetters being recalled, he does now, as he would have done in the first instance, had they not been written, admit, that fie is sorry that any ex- pression offensive to General Clavering, in a private lelter of his, should, through a brcaeh of confidence, have been made public; and he adds, that he never had auy intention uf giving offence to General Clavering." We are assured, says a London paper; that the fol- lowing remarkable fact may he relied on as authentic; and as it shews at once the spirit of the French Govern- ment, and tho determined rancour of Bonaparte, it may not he unworthy of being generally known in this country :— Mr. Mackenzie, our negotiator, having experienced many acts of personal kindness and attention at Morlaix, was desirous of evincing his sense of these obligations to the inhabitants in a more expressive manner than mere words. He accordingly, as a favour to himself, applied to his Government for the release of TEN young men belonging to the town of Morlaix, and the sons of her citizens, who were prisoners of war in England. His request was complied with, and they were imme- diately liberated, without exchange or any equivalent, and freely restored to their anxious friends. Iu con- sequence of this display of beneficence and gratitude, the inhabitants of Morlaix were equally solicitous of affqrding to Mr. Mackenzie a proof of their generosity and feeling for the obligation ; and understanding lhat a cousin and schoolfellow of his, of the same name, was a prisoner at Verdun, they made an application to their stern Ruler, that he, ( Mr. Mackenzie) should be set at liberty, in return for the exertions of his relative in their behalf, of which at the same time they made a warm representation. After waiting some time for the answer to their petition, they received it in these laco- nic terms, savouring more of jacobinism than of impe- rial dignity, " Le Gouvernment se vante de se refuser," — and Mr. Mackenzie is still retained in custody at the place of his imprisonment. The captors of Amhoyna will divide, we understand, not less than 300,0001. the proceeds of 67 valuable vessels, Government stores, and spices, taken at that settlement. The amount of the spices is stated to he 202,000 pounds weight of cloves, 90,000 of nutmegs, 57,000 of mace. The following is a list of the British ships of war in the Tagus, ou the 20th ult. Hon. Adm. BERKELEY. Robbery.— A circumstance that engrosses as well the conversation as the astonishment of the fashionable world, is a robbery committed on Tuesday last, at lady Heathcote's, in Grosvenor- square. During the af- ternoon her ladyship had takfen her usual ride, but had prolonged il till six o'clock ; when returning to her dressing- room, she discovered that her casket of jewels had been robbed of a superb pearl and diamond neck- lace, of the value of 1000 guineas; and as no one but the servants had been iu the house during her absence, she is moSt certain one of them has committed the theft, ltis, however, singular, that from this casket, which contained other jewels, to the amount of at least 10,000 guineas, this necklace should alone be selected. Mr, Conant, the Magistrate, has been most assiduous in the examination ' of the servants. A valuable gold watch was stolen from her ladyship in a similar man- ner, about three months ago. Irish Exparts.— On Thursday the 6th instant, were exported from the port of Dublin, alone 9^ 0 oxen, 250 sheep, and 250 pigs. The exportations of Ireland seem to be now comprised in the following list; live stock, quills, feathers, rags, salt, and other provisions; hides and skins, bones, corn, and other raw materials ; only two articles of manufacture— linen and Members of Parliament. ( The Harp.) Electric Column.— Mr. de Luc, of Windsor, has invented a machine, called the Electric Column, which may be considered the most important discovery in the science of electricity, since that of the voltaic pile. By means of it he set some small bells a ringing, which continued to do so without stopping for 152 days. This long continuance renders it not improbable that the weight of the clapper may be so adapted to the power of the apparatus, as to cause small hells lo continue ringing for years together without intermission. Information to Parish Officers.— Upon a case re- served for the opinion of the Court of King's Bench, arising out of au appeal between the parish of All Saints, Derby, and the parish of Lambeth, Surrey, and argued last term, it has been determined, that no person can serve the offices of churchwarden and overseer at the same time; and that all the acts of a peison so ap- pointed are illegal and void.— The appointment to these two offices must be separate and distinct. A cause was tried in the Court of Exchequer a few days ago, which gave Mr. Dauncey and Mr. Jekyll op- portunities of distinguishing their great talents. The latter as counsel for the defendant, never was more pointed or brilliant. In a publication that was printed during the course of last winter in Bath, called the ' Tell- Tale ;' written ( it now appears) by a Dr. Hamilton, of Bristol, the Doctor had introduced some severe stric- tures, or as the Lord Chief Baron declared them, some atrocious libels on Mr. Hobday, an artist of Bristol, and his wife. Mr. Hobday thought proper to take the law into his own hands; and without mercy, publicly horsewhipt the Doctor. For this disgrace and outrage the latter sought damages at law, which he laid at 40001. but he was obliged to retire from the bar, " all smart- ing with his wounds being cold"— with a verdict of one shilling only. An Irishman, who was tried last week at the Quarter ses- sions in Dublin, was asked " what he had to say in his de- fence;" to which he replied, " Nothing, and please your honour; for I'm not a spokesman like your worship; but I Would thank your lordship to say What you can in my favour." That horses participate with their riders in the pleasures ol the chace, is a well- known fact; but an extraordinary instance ofthe love which these animals have for sports and company was shewn near Lincoln last week. The fox hounds were passing near Caenby- hall, the seat of Charles Tennison, Esq. when two coach horses, made wild by the cry of the hounds, escaped from the lawn ( over a fence which was thought, suffi- cient to have confined horses bred for more agile Uses), and followed the chace to a considerable distance; They got so far from home, that they were nut found ou Wednesday ; on which day ( four days after their escape) hand- bills were cir- culated, describing the frolicsome runaways. — Rxhard.

In acceding to the continental system, he exempts from confiscation all the colonial produce an Eng ish merchandize legally imported previous to the 23d of April, • In the Consistory Court of De- ctor's Commons, a few days ago, criminal articles were exhibited by Miss Hannah Cox, against the Rev. W> Gooday, vicar of Terling, in Essex, for brawling in the church. This prosecution is founded on the statute of Edward VI. and on the ground that Mr. G. in the midst of divine service, without good cause, addressed the young lady, stating that he had observed improper behaviour in her at church; that if she continued it, he should order the sexton to turn her out; anil if that would not do, he would put her into the Spiritual Court.— Miss Cox immediately retired with her sister from the church, and the present proceedings were instituted against the vicar, and after hearing counsel on both sides, the criminal articles were admitted. Sir William Scott presided as judge.

KING'S EVIL. TO DR. SMITH. DEAR SIR— As I am not used to write much, I humbly in- form you, for the benefit of mankind', that my daughter Martha Jebb, at the age of 7 years, was shockingly afflicted with the King's Evil. In 1303, she was recommended bv a lady as an out- patient to the Infirmary, in which situation she remained until 1S05, without receiving any benefit. I was then advised to iry the Ploughman's Drops, which I did, and thank God I soon found, without the help of the - surgeon'.-; knife, or burning hot caustic, that my dear daughter in the short space of three months was perfectly cured, and r-" rnnn--. at this lime quite sound. I must ohsetve that the nlcPrs round her poor little neck were enough to shock the heart of any one. I am, dear Mr. Smith, your's, \ VX JF. BLI. IVrockwardine, Jan. 17, 1808. My daughter may be seen any day, as a living witness of the good your blessed Ploughman's Drops are capable of doing. These Drops aie to be had in square Bottles, with these Words moulded on each, " Mr. Smith's Ploughman's Drops," ( all others are spurious), at .£ 1 2s. the large, and lis. the small, Duty included, at the Doctor's House, Upton Magna, near Shrewsbury ; of W.
