The Types are new and cast, purposely for the Work ; the Paper is of the first Manufacture.

SD. AY, DEC. 27. THE HEGFNCY. On the m'Mio'n of the Earl of T. IVERPOOL, the. Hortsp went into a Committee, and the Resolutions which hwd bfen pa? srjd by the Commons we< e read — On the first of them, which declares the inraparity of the King, beius: put, the EArl of LIVFRPOOT, addressed the House at. great length, in support of the PeSo'iitions, and in jus'iftcation of the corduct of himself nnd his r'olleacues, for the , c1Vps thev had taken on the present extraordinary occasion. The first Resolution was carried nemine dissentievte.— Upon the second, that it is the right and duty of the two Houses to supnly the deficiency,- beinff read, Lord' STANUOVE said it was iric « frnplete ; and proposed an addition to the " Resolution, to the effect that such supply should onlv exi t. " until the Irro Houses, hpyh a full end satis factory proof rf the tact, Ttavr declared that his Majesty, is so far recovered as to he capable of p'rforniinj* the duties of his office " — His lordship- thought no objection could be made to this proposition. All parlies were agreed as to the competency of the, two Houses to decide on the steps to be pursued in the present emersrfency, for if they had not the right, where was the Court that could decide on it? The present case put. him in mind of an answer made bv a very wise Judge ( Burnet) to an observation once made to him, A person onCo observed to him, that the office of a Judge was a very s'rlht office; every case must have a right side and a wronsr; and it as surely very easy to deride between black and white.' ' True,' replied the learned Judge ; * when the case is simn'v black and white, it is an easy matter to determine ; but the greys were much moie difficult to determine upon.' So it was in the present case, where the least difference in shade from former precedents became important. Tiie noble lord concluded hy putting the amendment he had before proposed ; which was rifaratived without a div's'on.— Lord HOLLAND observed that this Resolution was similar to one, upon which there was a recorded difference of opinion on their lordships' journals. Some persons thought the Heir Apparent had a right to the office of Regent— some thought the light to appoint, was vested in the two Houses of Parliament— w hile others denied that principle, and asseited that it revetted to the people at large, But all men knew there could he but one Regent, and the universal wish was, that the repal authority should be conferred on the Heir Apparent, He would, therefore, feel it his duty to move the previous question on the second Resolu- tion ; and, should that motion be acceded to, be would then move—" That the lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Co n- mons of Great Britain and Ireland, in Parliament assembled, j should take such measures as the exigencies ofthe case re- quire • and that those measures should be in conformity with the principles of the Constitution." The question w as then put on lord Holland's motion, '* that the House do resume;" and negatived without a division.— The original Resolution was of course carried. The 3d Resolution, that the two Houses proceed by Bill, was then moved by the Earl of I IVERPOOI.— Lord HOLLAND after a long argument tending to shew tlw mode of proceed- ing hy bill to be quite incorrect and unconstitutional, and admitting that no line of proceeding would be perfectly correct, said that in his opinion proceeding by Address would be the preferable course of the two, being less liable to delay, more candid, and having les? the appearance of art and contriv- ance : and whatever might be the result of the present dis- cussion, it would be the duty of Parliament to institute a close investigation of the past, and to provide for the future* it wa « a dut\- they owed to the Sovereign, to the Country, and to themselves, to provide agiinst the usurpation of the Royal functions They had it now upon their Journals, that at a time when the King was labouring under a malady similar to that which they now had to lament, he had been represented as performing all the functions of Government. And the noble lord and his CoMeagues bad, in the face of the dav, taken upon themselves, contrary/ to law, without the consent of Parliament, and without the knowledge of the Sovereign, to usurp all the power and prerogative of the Crown. The noble lord concluded with moving as an amendment, that • instead of proceeding by bill, " An Address be presented to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, requesting him to take upon him the exeiciseof the royal power and authority in the united kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, in the name and on the behalf of his Majesty, during his Majesty's indisposition, and no longer; with a proviso, that his Royal Highness should not assume the exercise of tho? e powers, until j both Houses of Parliament had passed a bill or bills with certains restrictions," The Amendment was supported by the Duke of NORFOJ K- The Duke of SUSSEX also spoke foi the amendment, He insisted ihat Ministers had acted treasonably in having, so long suspended the Royal functions. The House and the Country had been deceived bv them ; they had been one day cheered by the hope of his Majesty's recovery, and the next day had brought, them disappointment. In this melancholy crisis, he looked to that. House and to the Country for support. That House bad an undoubted right to preserve the rights of the people against, any ministerial faction whatever: so also hid they a right, and it was therr duty, to preserve the preroga- tives of the Crown. He had heard of restrictions being put on the Regent— it could not be. If theie was a necessity for a Regent, it was necessary he should be the FULL and efficient Representative of the monarch, not a . puppet in the hands of Ministers, and he trusted their lordship* would not consent to make a mockery of Royalty,—( liar. Hear.' J—- Tbe illustri- ous Duke observed, it had been his fate to piss tiie last IB year.- of his life on the Continent, witnessing the fall of states and empires; and he had universally found that the road for the downfall of monarchy was Tn St paved by bringing the kingly office into disrepute. In this country we had au ex- cellent Constitution, founded on a glorious Revolution, and beautified by time. Feeling as he did, lie could not avoid once more calling their lordships attention to a circumstancc which struck at the very vitals of the Constitution. A noble lord ( Lord Tburlpw) in a former illness of his Majesty had said in that House, " When I forget my K'ng, may Gud for- get me;" but he would go further, aud say, " When I for- get the Constitution, may God forget me." It was ihat Con- stitution to which be was attached bv every tie— to which his family owed their succession, and his country its prosperity, its power, aud its greatness. Loid M, UL- GRAVE argued that as long as the King was in existence his political capacity remained entire; and Parlia- ment, during the suspension of his judgment, had a right to ( xucise that authority for his benefit; they bad a right to presume bis intention; and when the exercise of the Royal functions became necessary, and they put the Great Seal to a j bill of Regency, that became an Act ol Parliament, and bad > all the poweiN of Royal authority. His lordship assorted that the mode of proceed ng bv bill wa^ the only safe and con- | stitutional means of appointing a Regency. The Duke ol YORK, in a short speech, intimated that he should most cordially give his vote for the amendment pio- posed, and he thought the suspension of the Royal power ought not to be continued. five Ear] of MOIUA said, lie hailed the principle held forth that night, that the power with which a Soveiei° n was to be invested, was not given as a boon to the individual, but as a right to be exercised for the benefit of the people. There was nothing which the Constitution mere carefully guarded against that tho noble lords who now pretended to be the King's servants, were not Ministers, for the very moment the report of the Physicians declared the King incapable, from that moment they ceased to be his servants. TbeV had brought every kind of distress and calamity on the country ; and yet they considered themselves a tolerable bunch of kinglings: thev took the kingly power into their own hands Not content with ruining the trade and commerce, they now attempted to ruin the constitution of the countiv ; and if their lordships suf- fered these men to destroy the great bulwark of the consti- tution. which protected tbeir importance and property, they would be the vrrv first to suffer for their supineness; and they would bring down irreparable calamities not only on them- selves, but on their, remotest posterity. The Earl of BUCKINGHAMSHIRE supported the resolutions, merely as an act of duty to Ministers and his country.— The Marqr. is of LANS'DOWNE spoke in favotVr of the amendment. — Lord GRENVILLE declared his complete conviction of the propriety ofthe resolutions. He could not, however, defend the conduct of those w ith whom they originated on the present occasion. For eight weeks, on unfounded allegations, their lordships had been induced to delay any proceeding, in- stead of applying themselves to the discharge of their duty by way of bills He entertained a d ep sense of the'[ Crimi- nality of those arrogant men, by whom ( for the first time since the days of Cromwell) it had been said, that the regal authority could be exercised by any one but the Monarch, without an act of Parliament for that purpose : and he would shew, by his vote this night, his conviction that Ministers • had, by their late conduct, committed an outrage upon Par- liament, compromised the best interests of the Crown, and criminally violated the fundamental principles of the Con- stitution.— The House then divided— for the Amendment 74-, against it 100— Majority in favour of Ministers 16— Adjourned at half past three o'clock, till Monday. HOUSE OF LORDS— FRIDAY, DEC. On the Report of the Committee of the whole House oh theStateof the Nation being received. and the question being put on the third Resolution, Lord Holland opposed it, and moved an amendment, which was supported by Lords Erskiue and Darnley ; and combated by Lord Kenyon ; after which the amendment was negatived without a division.— Adjourned till Monday. HOUSE OF COMMONS. The CMANCF. LI. OR of the EXCHEQUER stated, that their meeting was in expectation of receiving some Resolutions from the House of Lords, but as none had been brought, he should propose that the House do adjourn till Monday,— Iu reply to a question put by Mr. Tierney, on the subject of the Regency, Mr. Perceval replied, that the limitations would be confined to the period of twelve months, and besides these, there would be regulations as to the custody and management of the King's person. The distinct and specific limitations to be proposed would not appear in the Resolutions, but in the Bill.— Ad- journed till Monday ; oh which day there will be a Call of the House.

The campaign is considered at an end, and both parties re- main in the positions which they have occupied for some time - Lord Wellington at Cartaxo; Massena at Santarem.— General Ilill defends the southern bank of the Tagus; and General Siiviera, Colonel Miller, and Colonel Trant, occupy positions in the rear of the enemy. As no attack has been made upon Coimbra, it is supposed the enemy had no serious intentions of making one, or had been prevented by the swell- ing of the M ond ego, and the strength of the division ( 15,000 men), which occupies Coimbra. Three Anholt Mails reached town this morning. The letters continue to furnish fresh disasters in the Baltic— between ' 20 and 30 vessels have been lost or wrecked in a gale of wind near Archangel. From Petersburg!} they write, that the merchants there have begun to experience the baneful effects of ihe Continental system, and that several failures had taken place, one of them Baron Roll, who had been a defaulter for a very considerable sum. It. was perfectly understood at Peter- burgh that Finland had been demanded of the Emperor by France to annex to the Swedish territory, and, if the opinion of the merchants can be relied on, the Emperor of Russia was decidedly resolved on a refusal. . By letters from Hamburgh of the 18tb instant, received to- day, it would appear that the Continent has reached its climax of misfortune. Thev state from, thence, that it has been notified to the Senate that the French Government have resolved to annex that city to France, as well as Luoeck, Biemen, and Luenburgli. The letters add, that the people of Bremen are so depressed at the intelligence that they have closed the Theatres and all places of amusement. It is impossible to conceive the misery occasioned by the rigorous measures pursued by Napoleon on the Continent. All the principal Merchants at Dantzick have, as if by oneaccoid, suspended their payments for a term of six months, when they hope to be enabled to renew them to the extent of all they owe. To the numerous losses of India ships, we have to add the Elizabeth extra ship, which has been attended with disastrous consequences.— We also r « gret to state, that the accounts from the French coast mention the loss of the Salcette British frigate, off Cherbourgh, and nearly the whole of the crew perished ' I hree Protests have been entered on the Lords' Journals, against the Resolutions of Friday last. They are signed by the Princes of the Blood, as well as bv a numerous body of Peers. HOUSE OF COMMONS— MONDAY, DEC. SI. A message from the Lords desired that a Committee of Conference of this House be appointed to confer wilh their lordships on the subject matter of the conference on the 22d inst. between both Houses. A Committee was. immediately appointed, and went up forthwith to the House of Peers — lu about a quarter of an hour the Committee returned and Mi. Spencer Stanhope reported, that the Lords had agreed to the Resolutions ofthe House communicated to them on tiie 22d instant, without any amendment. The Rep. « t was laid on the table— On the motion of the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer, the names of the defaulters on the last day the House was called over were now read.— Mr. Owen, a defaulter, was ordered to betaken into the custody of the Serjeant at Arms for not attending , in his place.— The older of the day for culling- over the House was postponed tiil Monday. REGENCY. • On the motion of the CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER the House resolved into a Committee, to take into further consider- ation the State of the Nation, to whom weie referred the former Resolutions of the. Committee, and which were agreed to. by the House of Lords.— Mr. PERCEVAL then rose, and addressed the Committee and stated what be had before laid ftown as the practical measure which should be adopted upon the resolutions before agreed to by the Committee ; the which were, 1st. That his Hoy a I Highness the Prince of Wales should be appointed sole Regent, with certain restrictions., viz. that lie must not grant any places for liie ; that he itiust uot create any peers of the Realm; or advance any public promotions, except in such cases where the conduct of particular indi- viduals peculiarly and eminently call fur such a record. — 2d! y. That tiie care and protection of. His Majesty's person be vested in the. Queen and a Council.— 3dly. That this Regency do not continue longer than a tweKvcmonth, and this with a view to secure the certainty of the Execu- tive Power; — and 4thly. That part of this twelvemonth must take place during six weeks of the sitting of Parlia- ment,— The right hon. gentleman anticipated very little ob- jection to these restrictions. He did this upon the general agreement, that as Parliament had the power to give, it had also the power to restrict. He put out of his consideration any lespect to particular persons. This was a measure to provide a substitute for the Royal functions, which were now vacant. He concluded that on looking to precedents it had not been thought disrespectful, or derogating from the Royal Authority., to restrict that authority when it was thougnt neces- sary This he thought was such a case, and came precisely within its limits, because, in a great constitutional question, a question like this, it was the duty of Parliament to protect and provide for the security of the Royal authority, which might by possibility be impaired in the hands of a Regent. Auot hei clause he should introduce into the bill which would be, that in case his Maiesty should recover during the 12 months, he should immediately resume bis Royal authority ; and this was an happy issue he mo> t confidently expected, confirmed as he was, by the general opinion of the King's j Physicians, who gave it as their judgement, that although his I age was advanced, that did not preclude the probability of his recovery. The right hon. gentleman after a most able and elaborate speech, n; which he contended he was borne out in this measure by thepiecedent of H38, concluded by moving for leave to bring iu a bill upon the grounds thus stated. Tiie debate on this motion was expected to be protracted to a coiuiderable length, as it was known that Mr. Sheudan, and several members ofthe opposition, were prepared to enter fully into the discussion of the question. t^ p The Letter of a Briton on the treatment due to Strar. gerx, in reference to the arrival of Lupien Bonaparte at Lwt'ozo, shall appear next week.— Percautus zvill reaaily conjecture our mot ves for not insetting his last letter.

Extract of a letter from Ludlow, 31st Dec.—" Wednesday ' last, Lncien Bonaparte, and his Nephew, accompanied by Mr. Mackenzie, arrived at the An « el Inn, Ludlow. On the following day they were vi- ited there by some ofthe nobility and gentry of the town and neighbourhood ; nd the same evening attended the Assembly at the Town- hall, where every due respect was shewn them bv tbe company.— Madame Bonaparte, with seven children, were expected to arrive at I udlow in the course of this week, where they will remain two months before they proceed to Stone House, five miles from that town, instead of going to Lymore, ir. Montgomeryshire, as at fust fixed on.'' Lucicn and his party travelled in two chariots and four, and were attended by three servants. He behaved with much affability towards those who were solicitous of seeing him in the places through which thev passed. At Glocester, ( where he slept on Tuesday night), he walked out for a quarter of an hour before they dined ; aud, upon his returning to the hon* e, found tbe room so warm, that be ordered the door to be left open ; so that numbers of curious spectators were highly gra- tified by this means. Early on Wednesday morning, he visited the Cathedral, with which fabric he seemed highly pleased ; and, soon after eight o'clock, they set off for Tewkesbury, where they breakfasted at the Hop Pole. After remaining there about an hour, they proceeded on their route, and arrived at Worcester about twelve o'clock ; but the horses being in readiness, they did not alight from their carriages, and, continuing their journey with great rapidity, reached Ludlow to dinner. I. ucien observed, that all he had heard of the curiosity of the English was greatly surpassed by what he had witnessed. Numerous gronpes of people were assembled in every town, village, and at every turnpike through which they passed. At Worcester he was cheered by the populace on his departure, which he politely acknow ledged bv repeat- edly bowing. It is reported that he has brought considerab e property with him, not less than three millions twenty- five thousand pounds sterling. The effects of the storm on Tuesday have been awfully felt at spa, on most of the English and Welsh coaits, and in many exposed situations on land. The Liverpool papt rs state that a great number of vessels are totally lost. A Member of a City Club, who, from a terse mode of speaking, has acquired the appellation of Laconic, lining asked lately his opinion of the present state of public aff. urs, replied, in short, B maparte is now more busy in soliciting Fortune, than in obtaining Title ; or why should he send so many orders ( in contradiction to his political decrees) to purchase Tickets in the State Lottery, to be drawn on an j entirely New Plan, in One Day, containing Forty- four | Capital Prizes, amounting toTwo Hundred Thousand Pounds, f'our of which are of Twenty Thousand Pounds cach, on the loth of February next.

Sin— There are many subjects of serious importance to individuals and to the public, which have hitherto been but little considered, and are consequently but imperfectly under- stood. This is the case with regard to Insurance against Loss by Fire ; a subject which deserves to be maturely weighed by all who have property to insure, for it is a fact, ( not consi dered, however, perhaps, hy one person in a thousand) that the expense of insuring against loss by fire, including com pound iuteiest on the premium paid, amounts, in the course of a long life, to more than the value of the property injured I am, therefore, induced to request the attention of you readers to a few observations upon the nature and effect of the two principal modes of Insurance adopted in this country. | The returns made to Government of the duty shew, that ] the premium now paid in this kingdom for Insurance amounts to about ,£ 600,000 per annum ; and it has been clearly ' ascertained that not half that sum is required to pay all the losses by fire whicb occur within the year— of course upwards of o£ 300,000 is annually paid by the public over and above the amount lequired to defray the losses. Whilst Insurance was an untried expciiment it was advise- able to raise large capitals by subscription, in order to guard against any possible contingency ; but since we find, by long experience, that the average Joshes are so far below what the premiums have amounted to, it now becomes the interest aud the duty ot every man to adopt a Jess expensive system. The object of the Norwich Union Office, in which I am an insurer, is, to provide means of obtaining security without this heavy expense to the party ; and its plan is simply that of rceivmg the usual annual premiums for 7 yeais, and then eturning all that has not been wanted to pay losses aud charges. This Institution has now been established neatly fourteen years— has paid all claims on account of fires— has returned toils insurers more than half the premium iftey deposited, and has now an existing and increasing capital, which far exceeds the probability of loss. 1 have before shewn, that in the common mode of Insur- i ance, the public are annually paying away above .£ 300,000 THE WOLVERHAMPTON BOAT COMPANY TJETURN Thanks to their Friends and the Pub- JSLiL lie, for the liberal Encouragement they have hitherto- received ; and hereby beg Leave to inform them, that a smelt Advance of F. eights will take Place the FIRST of JANUARY, lflll ; but have no d mbt it will meet their Approbation from the Arrangements they have made for the Dispatch of Busi- ness, and the Attention they are determined shall be. paid to their Consignments — All Letters, & c. are desired to be addressed to THE WOLVERHAMPTON BOAT COMPANY, Union Wharf, Wolverhampton, Mr. Crowley declining' the Agency at the conclusion of this Year, Wolverhampton, Dec. lMk, 1810. 1 NOTICE TO CREDITORS.

Mr. EDITOR, Tn my fonner letter, I described the quantity of printed matter in Nr. Scott's Romance so greedily sought after at this moment ; adverted to the circumstance of recompence bestowed on the author by those who purchased his work; and gave, ill the conclusion, an analysis of its plan, arising out of the first canto and part of the second.— I promised to give jny opinion of its merits, it follows that 1 must also speak of its defect's; and 1 should be happy if there weie less cause for blame and more for praise, than truth Will admit there is of either. The author appears like a builder amply provided with materials for a. fine edifice; but wanting either correct judg- ment or sufficient good taste, he disposes of some in a way laihei tending to disfigure than adorn the structure. The execution falls short of the original grandeur of design, or rather possible excellence of poe- tic architecture.— Some, of the apartments are admirably planned to produce fine effect on the minds of spectators; and not only are the rooms' veil formed and proportioned, but filled with paintings so strong lhat must forcibly str- keeach beholder, at the moment lie turns bis eye upon them.— Such is the fifth canto ! The leader who does not perceive I herein matter enough to produce strong sensations anil high admiration ( lhong. li not such ad- miration as to call forth the plaudits due lo viitue). must have an intellect not fit to take in hand a volume of romance. Having traced this Lady - Lake poem from Alpha to Omega, from bi ginning to end, with a disposition to lie candid, and at the same time closely scrutinous and strictly just, in forming my estimate of its merits and defects, 1 asked myself these questions: Well now, pray what advantage have 1 derived frotn it > What has it added to my stock of knowledge ? What improvement has it effected on iny heart ? " Now have I, bv consulting at this shrine, " Retnrn'd the wiser, or the more instruct, " To flee or follow what concerns me most ?" Paradise Regained, II. 1 L. 438. — Am I duly recompensed for the labour of perusal ? Speak, judgement, an: l let candour now declare What are my gains. Really then I do not think the reward adequate to the toil. It is true that my knowledge of Highland customs has been somewhat increased, IF the Poet's narrative were a detail of facts; but it happens to have only a few circumstances of fact, for the base and the superstructure is ihe idle fiction of a poet's brain ; whose judgement is not strong enough to apply his materials to good purposes: it is a narration of diabolical fury, a detail of deeds of blood ; an acbount of rivalship anil combat, " Where martial spirits, all on fire, " Breath only wrath, and mortal ire. " Where blood pours down from many a wound ; 11 Where desp'rate is the strife and lone, 11 Aud either warrior fierce and strong. Lay of Ihe Last Minstrel, C. v. St. 6 and 01. What can we suppose the product of such knowledge ? Will it extend the sphere of philanthropic love, hy a stronger con- sciousness of man's amiability ? No ! the contrary The lieart of the reader of such strong scenes of wrath feels a portion of its malignant influence acting for a time ou his feelings; but when sufficient interval have elapsed, after perusal, for Ihe mind to recover its real bias ; if not much depraved by vice, tbe soul of every reader, must bv the re- action of thought arid due contemplation become indignant at beholding man little better than a monster of depravity ; a detestable compound of malignant selfish passions, and ruffian- like violence, arising from ferocity, lust, and greui bodily strength. To produce this virtuous indignation against vice should he the great object of the poet; hut instead of this what do we find ? Why some grey- headed old lascals introduced as ntinstrel- harpers, — minstiels forsooth; pretty minstrels they are— whose object is, by lamenting the loss of such scenes — to excite ycutli to deeds of fury and sanguinary revenge, in stead of acting as sage experienced Nestors, or rather i would say as old men taught wisdom by experience, and striving to counsel them against ferocious, and brutally lustful indulgence - of the passions. - Such poetry, as Mr. Scott's, is destructive of morality : and all ntbeis who so apply Ihe arts of invention and metrical language to strengthen rather than to curb vicious and in- ordinate desires, are evidently men who either labour under defect in judgement, or cov. rtly aim to sop the foundations of morality.— There is either blemish in the head or vice in the heart of such men.— From some few passages, I would not impeach the heart of Mr. Scott, but I do say, that if he pos- sessed more judgement and less fancy, he would he o beter poet, though perhaps not so charming a writer of romance.— Before 1 have done with hiin, and a few more of those roman- tic- brained gentlemen, I hope, Sir, to give him and them a few hints worthy of their attention ;— and which they shall be sui e lo remember. Mr. Scolt's poem is founded on these three base principles, Ambition, Lust, and sanguinary Strife.— To accomplish the design, Woman, lovely, charming, amiable woman, is made a chief instrument in exciting and strengthening such violations ofthe moral law.— There may be some shallow- pated readers who will consider this as gallantry, or compliment to woman's charms. It appeals to hie such gallantry as may be applied to animals iuhabitirg both towns and forests; which worry and lacerate each rtlher with teeth and talons, on account of a female whose kind looks they are anxious to gain, prompted thereto by feivour of the raging blood. If this be real gallan- try. my notions of it are radically w rong Besides, the plan has not novelty to recommend it. It is only a diversity ot machinery and incidents to produce the same effect, namely, to shew man as — a cut- throat; and woman as— the cause.— Aie we lo be for ever pestered with these servile imitations of preceding poets ? Aie we never tn lie freed from the shackles imposed on us by the dealers in fiction, who lived in days of old, and wrote for men at Alliens and at Home ' Are WAS and WOMAN to be perpetual means uf annoying human happiness ? Is human intellect to be eternally fetteird, and in bondage to the ancients " t Is mind, like body, to decrease in vigour as it proceeds in age ' Is the understanding of MAN to exper'- eirce a second childhood; and to be pleased or terrified with tales of fairies, elfin wizards, witches, spirits, hobgoblins, and foul fiends on earth ? Is philusophy never . to dispel from the human mind the pre- judices and fears of ignorance ? or rather let us say, shall not the fire and light of science warm and invigorate the faculties of the human race, and chase away the superstitions and monk- taught terrors of the darker oges ? Realty I am dis- gusted with Ibis rei urrence of similarity in the works of men pretending to be poets 1 wish, Sir, to see a poem in honour of Itoman, which makes. her. lhe medium of terminating the baser passions of innn; aud purifying his heait from its coiruptions, its rest*, less ajnbrlion, and blood- thirsty propensities. ef- iusidrrnlile number of what appear to rne good thoughts, neither wqokly imagined, not faintly expressed, in reference tb flic fair sex, here presented themselves. 1 made record of them- immediately with the peu , lest, being deferred to a future day, they should be lost: a circumstance I have too often experienced, and I presume is not unfrequent with other persons habituated to composition. 1 huve therefore, Sir, learnt to be more cautions, and not rely wholly on the kind.

KRIITKOS. LUMEN BONAPARTE.— The circumstances relative to the arrival of this person iu England, arc sl. ued in the London papers to be as follow :— " In cuuseqnenee of tbe repeated demands of Napoleon, that he should separate hum his wile, and suffer his futur. destiny tu be arranged by the French Ruler ; and the repeated refusal of I. qcien lo conform to these demands, the fatter began to be appitheiisive that forcible measures would fie re- soited to by Napoleon, and therefuiB Lurien, many months ago, wrote hem Rome to Mr. Hill, our Minister at Sardinia, requesting lhat that Gentleman would obtain fiom his Court, a passpoit for Lucien and his family to proceed to America.— Mr. Hill, naturally anxious to facilitate the removal of one brother from another, who seemed likely to result to the most desperate violence in older to ao^ iklith his purpose, ventured to send'an answer, encouragiuj^^ tii.' ii^,. Sardinia, and then communicated what ' Government, who immedii tely expiessc grant tbe passports. Mr, H. ll then t rocet- d to to our him, that the permission which be requested eotild not be ob- tained. Lucien. however, soon availed himself of the favour- able letter from Mr. Hill, and proceeded to Sardinia, alleging that the prohibitory letter never reached him " The baggage of Lurien Bonaparte and his attendants, is stated to weigh 33 tons. There was a perfect squabble among the innkeepers of Plymouth and Dock, to know which of them should have the honour of lodging these persons under his roof. Lucicn studiously avoids all pomp and Ostentation. His eldest son, a fine youth of 11 years of age, was on Tuesdav taken through the dock- yard, accompanied by Capt. Warren, who brought them to England. What an impartial receiver is England of every sort of unfortunate greatness, legitimate or illegitimate I— The French Revolution not only sent us the Prince of Orange, nearly ail Llie House of Bourbon, and the King of Sweden, whom it ruined ; but it has also sent us Lucien Bonaparte, whom it aggrandized and enriched. We not only receive the latter with humanity, as we ought; but with nearly the same honours as the former, and perhaps with more consideration, calculation, and mensuration about the space that may be requisite for the accommodation of his extensive suite ! Sacrilege.— The following is a more particular ac- count of the robbery committed at St. Paul's Cathedral, than the limits afforded in our last paper would allow us to give.— On Sunday morning, the Sacrist of the Cathedral, on approaching the repository where the sacramental plate is kept, in order to take it to the altar, found the iron door had been double locked ; as his key could only open it if single locked; lie conclud- ed the officer who kept tile master- key had done it; lie accordingly went to him, anil they both repaired to the spot; when, on opening the door, a most affecting scene presented itself: the two large chests had been forced open and rifled of their most valuable contents ; a magnificent edition of the Bible and Common Prayer, in two volumes, the covers of which were of solid silver, most beautifully chased with Scripture History, was de- prived of its ornaments ; and the whole of the immense booty, amounting to 1761 ounces, was carried off.— The villains seem to have acted with the most cool deliberation : to effect their purpose, they had to pass eight doors before they reached the repository ; each of these doors they opened, and on their return, care- fully re- locked, excepting the iron door, which they double locked. The large chests were each secured wilh two immense padlocks, besides the principal chest locks; the padlocks they opened, but the locks baffling their exertions, they contrived to force the chests open. The robbery must certainly have been committed on the night of Friday or Saturday, as on the former day the. plate was useil at an ordination. The intrinsic. value of the plunder is not the only thing lo he lamented ; as a great part of it was of the most curious antique work- manship, being presents from different Deans and other pious persons, and might be considered as exquisite spe- cimens of the workmanship of the different ages in which they lived, and could not. now be executed at so low n sum as £ 2000. Every precaution and means have been taken to discover the depredators, and every engine is at work for that purpose: numberless exami- nations, and some apprehensions, have taken place, hut particulars on these points canuot at present be suffered to transpire- The Duke of ftueensberry, whose decease was noticed in our last paper, had been for some days afflicted with a severe flux, which no medicine could check. Dying without issue, the title of Duke of Queensberry is extinct; but his other titles descend, and his immense estates are divided. He is supposed to have died worth near two millions in ready money, Ti e Earldom of Qtieensberry descends to Sir Charles Douglas, of Kilhead, who married one of the daugh- ters of'the Duke of Buccleugh, with estates amounting to about 12,0001. a year. The Duke of Buccleugh succeeds to the estates of Drumlaurie, and we suppose to the title of Earl of Drumlaurie. Lord Douglas suc- ceeds to estates of less consideration, amounting to between 6 and 700ol. per annum. It is supposed, that the great bulk of the late Duke's personal estate, will go to the Earl of Yarmouth ; but his Grace used to say, that his will would surprise the public. His Grace had a presentiment of the time of his death : he laid a gentleman a wager of 5001. that he should die at a ceriain hour on Saturday ; which of course he lost, and he paid his wager, fhe Duke's principal medical attendant is, it seems, a serious loser by the exit of his valuable patient; as his Grace stipulated to pay him 6001. per annum, during the preservation of his life; wisely assuring him, at the same time, that all the Doctor's emoluments would inevitably cease at his death. The predominant feature of the Duke of dueensberry's character was. to use a common phrase, to do what he liked, without caring who was pleased or displeased at it. He was, upon the whole, one of those characters on which the strict moralist will not dwell with much complacency. His life was a life of pleasure, protracted lo an unusual period, and leaving few of those reflec- tions behind which can be moulded into the language ^ f panegyric. This, however, may he affirmed with truth, that/ he was a liberal friend and patron; and, during his life- time, performed some acts of princely munificence, which he intended to have included in his will. And this, he used to say, he did, " because he would neither tire his friends by longevity, nor diminish his bounty by the legacy duty." The last Will ol this venerable Peer was opened a few days ago, atul read in the presence of the nearest of his nohle Relatives now in London, It is loaded, it seems, with codicils, aud counter- codicil), to o most embarra- sing extent, and being all in the hand- writing of the testator, were in some instances not easily to be dccyphered.— In so capricious a uisposal and revocation of his bequests, some will find themselves unexpectedly noticed, while a greater number may experience a niorlil'ying disappliniment, several of whom, who knew themselves liber ally pensioned in the body of ihe will, being coniciLED down to a moiety of the donation looked for. The following stand amongst the principal bequests, viz — To Lord Douglas, dfc'lOO. l'OO The Earl of Yarmouth, for Ins life, antl lhat of Lady Yarmouth, and then to descend to their issue male, ,£ 1.70,01X1. the two houses in Pall- mall, and the villa at Richmond, w ith all their furni'ure.

Besides his extensive landed estates, he has died worth a million sterling ol uttier disposable properly. Perkins alias Williams, who lately absconded with the properly of his employers, Messrs. Tripp and Dyer, of Bristol, was ou Friday se'nuig'ht apprehended in a poor lodging house in Belfast, by Cortland Skinner, Esq. and George Bristow, Esq. Magistrates, accom- panied by an officer. He was disguised in very coarse apparel and trowsers. He denied his name was Perkins, oi tint he was the person they were in search of , but as he wanted part of the fore- finger of iiis right hand, there remained no doubt of his identity, and he was im- mediately committed to Carrick. terg. us gaol under a guard. We hear he has since given such information as has led to the recovery of a great deal of property. One box of linen, of great value, was on board a vessel bound for America, and above 800/. in good bills, ou ew York, have been fouud concealed iu a hay- stack in ounty of Down. PROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. ' DOWNING- STREET, DECEMBER 25, 1810. A dispatch, of which the following is a copy, was received last night at the office of the Earl of Liverpool, from Lieut, General Viscount Wellington, dated Cartaxo, Dec. 8,1810. MY LORD, The detachment of the enemy's troops, commanded by General Gardanne, which had returned to Sobreira Formosa, have continued their march to the frontier, and by . the last accounts had entered Spain.— I have not heard that this detachment had any communication with the enemy's troops on the left of theZezere, from whom they were distant about three leagues. I under stand that, having lost some prisoners, taken by a patrole and hy a party of the ordonenza which accom- panied the Hon. Lieut.- Colonel Ponsonby on a recon- lioissaiice from Ahrantesto the river Codes, they made very particular enquiries respect ng the position of Lieut. General Hill's corps, and the means which the allies possessed of crossing the ' I'agus at Abrantes ; and, having commenced their march from Cardigos towards the Codes in the morning, they retired about eleven with great precipitation, and continued their retreat in the same manner till they reached the frontier. They were followed by the ordonenza, who did them much mischief on the march, aud took innch baggage from them. The enemy destroyed many hoises and mules which could not keep up with them ; and this march, if it was ordered hy superior authority, and is connected with any other arrangement, had every appearance, and was attended by all the consequences of a precipitate retreat.— No alteration of any importance has been made in the position of the enemy's troops since I addressed your Lordship. I have the honour, & c. ( Signed) WELLINGTON. ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, DECEMBER 25, 1310.

Her parents had applied to nearly all the medical gentlemen in lhat neighbourhood, without ihe least prospect of ever gaining Relief,- when accidentally mention ing the deplorable situation of their little daughter to me, and having before witnessed tbe beneficial influence of your medi- C ne in similar cases, I procured two bottles from Mr. llether- toii, anil sent per coach. A few days ago 1 received the pleas- ing intelligence that the medicine had performed the most miraculous cure that perhaps was ever witnessed, as my niece had recovered the full use of her limbs, and was in other re- spects in perfect health.
