3 pet c ^ s'L- vUfd r^ rz PRINTED AND PUBLISHED, FOR THE PROPRIETORS, BY G. F. HARRIS • HI, No. 50t. iO cieternii. it" SATCRDA^ MA'V i, 141- 1. WEDNESDAY'S POST. LONDON, TUESDAY, APRIL 30. LETTERS from Lis RS to the 1? th ins taut have been reeeiveil isbon by the Intelligent gun- brig, which has arrived from that port at Plymouth. These let- Vrs state, that Lord Wellington was expected at Lisbon1 to be present at the solemn ceremonies and rejoicings which are to take place, in consequence of the deliverance of the country from the enemy. A grand Te Denm is to be performed on this occasion. It is understood that Lord Wellington does not intend to enter Spain 111 force, and that the allied array will immediately occupy three strong positions 011 the Portuguese frontier, whence corps of light troops and cavalry will he pushed forward to harrass } he enemy. It was reported at Lisbon that Badajos had surrendered. A Member of the Cortes, whose person by his office is sacred frec\ arrest, is said to have been seized aud imprisoned ii/ j, : e Ca"': of St, Sebastian, and it was intended that two 111c ,1: members of that august body should receive the same treatment ou the fol- lowing day. A vessel arrived yesterday, which sailed from the Dutch coast on Monday night, with several passen- gers who got 011 board by stealth. The master states, that lie was at Amsterdam 011 the preceding Saturday, when the commotion took place. Some conscripts of the Jewish persuasion having revolted, they were, after a considerable struggle, overpowered bv the troops that escorted them, and four of them shot by Way of example to the others. This act of severity occasioned a numerous mob to assemble, chiefly con- sisting of women, who pelted the French officers and soldiers with stones and other missiles. One officer was severely w ounded on thehead ill the affray. The only act of outrage committed besides, was the cut- ting adrift some boats in which conscripts were put for the security of conveyance. A strong French force continued to parade the streets from Saturday, until the time our informant left Amsterdam. No person was suffered to appear abroad, cxcept upon urgent business, or with the permission of the French. A gentleman has arrived in town from Rotterdam, who left that place on Monday last. He confirms the reports which have been in circulation of disturbanci s having taken place in different parts of Holland, but states that they had been entirely suppressed. He re presents the rigour of the French authorities as into- lerable in the extreme. Domiciliary visits had taken place in several of the villages 011 the coast, and the utmost precaution was taken to prevent the fishermen flora having any intercourse with our ships of war. A morning paper mentions a rumour of the Danish, and other sailors disaffected to France, having taken possession ofthe Scheldt fleet, with which they have threatened to proceed to sea. The following official notice was, on Saturday, posted at Lloyd's Coffee- house :—" The Lords of the Conunittpe qf the Council of Trade have received in- formation, from which there is reason to believe tbat a Swedish frigate ( the Eurydice) is cruizing in the Baltic, under orders to capture all Danish vessels." Th/„ < unse nt tliiA, - ufi> » » « between SvOjdon and T) t 1 < nar.. not ajhjflpstdy known. It is sad, how ever, in letters fion. Gottenburgh, dated Ihe 22d, that sonic Danish and French privateers lately made an attack on the small Swedish port of Matwick, from which they cut out three vessels, of which tliey piade prizes. This the Swedish Government natural- ly considered as an act of hostility, and immediately determined on reprisals. The resentment of the Swedish Government is not confincd, it seems, to the mere fitting out of this frigate, but it has given permis- sion to a number of privateers to cruize against the Danes. The most extraordinary part of the intelli- gence, however, is that this measure is said to have been strongly recommended by Bcrnadottc. COPENHAGEN, APRIL 6.— The following is a lite- ral translation of a letter which the English Governor ofthe island of Anholt wrote, on the 29 th of March last, Ri Major General De TeHequest, Commander in Chief in Jutland :—" Sir— In consideration of the bravery of w hich the troops of his Danish Majesty gave proof, in their attack of this island, and which Y- as excited my admiration, I have opened a cartel, and sent a Danish officer, who is charged to propose this exchange of the twenty military prisoners, whom I si't at liberty upon their parole ofhonour, and whose arrival I beg you to acknowledge in writing; or, if it is more agreeable to you, to send me back an equal number of English prisoners.— Your Excellency may be assured that the greatest care shall be taken of the wojmded, and every attention paid them. The Com- mailer in Chief of t| iis expedition, who died in the field of honour, where he manifested so much bra- very, shall be to- morrow interred with all the honour due to a man who perished with so much glory. I have the honour to be, " J. W. MAURICE." French Papers to the 22d instant have been re- ceived, but they arc very uninteresting. The ex- pulsion of Massena from Portugal is not alluded to in them, but the Parisians are, perhaps, indemnified for the deficiency of news, by the gossipping stories which are detailed to them, respecting the churching of the Empress, and the health of the young Kina of Rome, who is named Napoleon Francis Charles Joseph. An Ambassador has been sent to Vienna to solicit the Emperor of Austria to stand sponsor to tiie little King, whose christening is to take place on the 2d of June, and to be celebrated by a Te Oeum, a grand dinner and fire- works at Paris, and on the following day by fetes throughout the Empire. The Moniteur, of the 30th of September, 1309, in some official observations upon the campaign in Spain and Portugal, said, " We hope the English General, who, in the course of this winter, will be driven into the Tagus, and forced to evaeuatc Portugal, will be created Duke of Lisbon !" We should be glad to know Bonaparte's opinion npon the subject at present, . hut whatever he may think now upon the propriety • of creating I. ord Wellington Duke of Lisbon, we are inclined to believe that he will postpone, if not entirely abandon, his intention of creating Massena King of Portugal. We are happy to hear by the last accounts from Por- tugal, that Lieut. Slater Smith, one of the brave 13th light dragoons, w ho was so severely wounded in the ac- tion of the 2.1th ult. is considered out of danger. Marshal Bcresford, with distinguished kindness, had him taken to his v « quarters, that every attention should be paid to him. W o understand he is but just 19, an only sou, antl an officer of great promise. Government have, it is said, advised all Com- manders 011 foreign stations, of the probability of a rupture between this country and America.— In cor- • roboratrpn of this report, we have to state, that the oistand 103d repeals arc uudcr orders for Canada Mr. Foster, our newly appointed Ambassador to the United States of America, left town on Friday morn- ing for Portsmouth, where he will immediately em- bark for America. Extract of a letter from Kohlenfeld ( department of Hanover) dated April 6.—" A dreadful tire broke out in our village 011 the 26th March, and has been the more destructive, because the inhabitants were, at the time it commenced, occupied in cultivating their fields, or working iu the forest.— The flames, assisted by a violent wind from the south- east, spread with incredible rapidity from one end to the other of the village. In less than an hour 153 houses of tiie unfortunate inhabitants were reduced to ashes. It was not possible to save any ofthe effects; and what is still more afflicting is, the provisions of corn, which were very considerable, have been a prey to the Haines, as well as 150 head of cattle. It was even with the greatest difficulty that many individual^ were able to escape with their children. A child, which had been conveyed into another house, peri.- hed, notwithstanding all tin efforts of its parents to saye it from the flames. It was necessary to employ force to take away its mother, who, driven to despair by its distressing cries, attempted to throw herself into the fire. This misfortune lias reduced 483 per- sons to mendicity. Compassionate and generous peo- ple eagerly step forward to their assistance— The parish church, pastor's house, and school- house, alone escaped the fire." A singular change is about to take place in our commercial relations with the East, and especially with China. Forages, the precious metals exported to the latter have been in a state of accumulation ; a large portion of them will probably in a short time return to this quarter of the globe. An absolute want of raw materials of various descriptions lias at length opened the eyes of the Chinese to the folly of retaining within their own empire, through motives of jealousy, a commodity which derives its chief value from its being considered as the only general instrument of commerce. The countries contiguous to China begin now tu experience the beneficial con- sequences of the change. Considerable supplies of specie have already reached various parts of India from China; antl ill Bengal, silver had recently been most abundant. Indeed, it is so plentiful at Calcutta, that the rate of interest, which in India has usually been extremely high, has fallen almost as low as in Europe. In some of the ships about to arrive from India, large supplies of dollars anil specie in general, arc expected; aud it is calculated, that, before any very long period elapses, we shall in this country re- ceive from that quarter further supplies to tiie amount of seven millions of dollars. On Tuesday a court- martial assembled on board the Gladiator, at Portsmouth, to try Lieut. Joseph Tullidge, the surviving officers, and ship's company of his Majesty's ship Africaine, which was captured off the Isle of France. The court having examined into the circumstances attending her capture, agreed, '' that his Majesty's ship Africainc captured by a very snperipj force of the enemy, after an aption which was commenced by the order of her deceased commander, the la) e Capt. Robert Corbet, in a very Jn are .-. nd spItiteJiiamu-- , aih} after lit was disable? by the loss of his right leg, by the second broadside of the enemy, was continued by the said Lieut. Joseph - ,, . " , i . PRICE SIX- PENCE HALFPENNY The royal vault, in Cardinal Wolsey's 1 chapel, Windsor, is going on with great dispatch, uiUder the direction of Mr. Wyatt, and is 011 a very magnificent scale. Il is intended to have a communication by a sub- terraneous passage withasmaller vault in St. George's chapel, where the interments are to take p'lace, from whence the bodies are to be removed into' the royal vault, and there deposited .. His Majesty, iu testimony of the affecti .. %• ser- vices and attention of the la^ e Miss Gascoigiie, to the departed Princess Amelia, has ordered a nlnrble tablet to her memory to be placed 0.11 the right I. jnd aisle of St George's Chapel, Windsor, w ith the lol- lowing inscription:— KING GEORGE III. 1 caused to be interred near this place the body of MARY GASCOIQNE, Servant to the late Princess AMELIA; anil this Stone to be inscribed in testimony of his grateful sense of the faithful service and attachment of an amiable vouog woman to bis beloved Daughter, whom she - uivir*\ l - i' .; I'lie'- r .— tie-,. She died the l. itbSf I'ebriiary, 1311. On Friday last died, al his scat in Norfolk, Sir James Pulteney, Bart, a General iif the Army, aud Colonel ofthe 18th regiment of foot. His death was occasioned by the accident of his powder- horn taking lire, while loading his gun, when the catch of it being blown violently into his left eve, occasioned an inflammation, which no medical skill could afterwards allay. Sir James served at the commencement of the war as Adjutant- General, under the Duke pf York, in Flanders ; afterwards had the command of an un- successful expedition against Ferrol; and a short time since filled the office of Secretary at War with con- siderable crcilit. Though his military character was not marked by any brilliant exploit, he was considered by the profession a gallant soldier; and bis liberal donations to the distressed, after his accession to his fortune, proved him a benevolent man. The immense annual revenue which lie derived as the interest alone out of the Pulteney property, by the will of his late Lady, the Countess of Bath, was full 50,0001 pel- annum ; the principal of which, by his death, now devolves, by the same- will, 011 the four children of Mrs Markham, datightt'" of Sir ^ utton, Bart. by a son of the late Archbishop of York, who was divorced from her husband about six years ago : part of her children will now come into the possession of 250,0001. sterling, as their portion of this great fortune, aggrandized by the late Sir Wm. Pulteney. Last week died, at the extraordinary age of 112 years, after two days illness, John Leary, an honest, faithful domestic, in the family of Curragh, county of Limerick, for upwards of eighty years. He was mar- ried ts eight wives, by seven of whom he had children; / his last he married in his 103d year. He declared that he never suffered a day's illness or an hour's pain, uuiess for the death of a friend, or occasionally for t^ ie loss of a wife I Wc learn from Paris that the female monster, Whom the papers lately mentioned under thp name of Madclainc Albert, found guilty of having murdered her father, u'er mother, and her two sisters, was stn- . i need tjr eatli, and executed the SOU} of March, at lin ' j- axgbe was cogfeywiM?, t" « fysic ofex » cn * Horned in a red ' cheffise^' ft " flbe ^*. ier Kleail and tec covered with a black'veii;' wftitii was not re- LOCAL MILITIA.

Friday a preparatory interview was had between the Marquis of Lansdowne, Lord Holland, and Mr. Perceval, at which it was determined to call a meet- ing of the Noblemen and Gentlemen favourable to the cause of Portugal, to raise a subscription in West- minster similar to that which had been so liberally supported in the city of London ; the meeting is fix- ed for Wednesday, The ficeholders of the county of Cambridge, in the interest; of the Hardwickc family, have voted three massy pieces of plate, value 15001. to the Right Hon. Charles Yorke, as a testimonial of their respect for his private virtues and public conduct. We have great satisfaction in stating that his Royal Highness the Dtike of Sussex is perfectly recovered from his late accident. It is expected that the whole of the volunteer corps of the metropolis and the environs will very shortly be reviewed in Hyde Park, by his Royal Highness the Prince Regent. In consideration of the distinguished services of the 87th regiment upon various occasions, and more re- cently in the brilliant action at Barrosa, it is in future to be styled the 87th or Prince of Wales's own Irish regiment : and to bear as a badge of honor, upon the regimental colours'and appointments, an Eagle, with a Wreath of Laurel, above the Harp, in addition to the Arms of his Royal Highness. The scrjeant of flic 87tli or the Prince's Own Royal Irish Volunteers, who took the Eagle, at Barrosa, is to have an Ensigncy, and to be removed 011 the first vacancy into his own regiment. His gallant Colonel, Sir John Doyle, submitted his claim of merit to the Prince Regent, through the Commander in Chief, and had it instantly granted. In consequence of the retreat of the French army, a great fall iu the price of wines has taken place iu Portugal. A great part of the stock sent out for the use of the allied troops w ill not be wanted for that purppse, in consequence of the general opening for supplies from the interior to conic to market. The speculators, who enhanced upon the rccent want, in the hope of making exorbitant profits, in the expect- ed event of still greater distress, are likely to be con- siderable losers. Next Term the question between Sir Francis Bur- den and the Speaker will occupy the attention of the Court of King's Bcqch, when also the Attorney General will be heard in reply to Mr. Holroyd; but as the Court w ill afterwards hear that gentleman again, and they themselves deliberate subsequently upon the judgment in the demurrer, if is nof likely that any- trial at bar can be had till next Michaelmas. The amount of subscriptions received by the Gene- ral Committee in London, for the relief of British prisoners in France, is upwards of 26,0001 There are more than 10,000 British subjects iu the diffe- rent prisons of Franco, antl to afford them relief, in a very limited way, for food, with some bedding, fuel, tic. will require an annual sum of from 20 to 25,0001. The Society for the discharge and relief of persons imprisoned for small debts have made their annual report of the number of debtors discharged and re- lieved within the last year, which amount to 769, who had 533 w ives, and 1536 children.— The average cx- pt- nce of their liberation amounted to four pounds, six- teen shillings, and a penny each. I body The Sir Francis Drake, Captain Harris, lately cap- tured a Dnteh corvette, on ttie coast of Java, the crew of wlncl; were, at their request, landed on that island. During the same cruize, the Sir Francis Drake fell in with eight Malay prows. Capt. Harris sent a boat tQ examine them : if they were armed, it was his orders to capture or destroy them: if they were employed only in the peaceable pursuits of commerce, they were not to be molested. The Malays made 110 resistance to the examination, but 011 the contrary, enticed four of the men below; whom they instantly murdered, cut them, in quarters, and hung the mangled remains up in the shrouds I Capt. Harris, exasperated at this treacherous and cruel murder of four of his brave crew, stood the Sir Francis Drake closer to the shore, and fired at them, till not a vestige of them was fo be seen. The whole of their crews, consisting of400 of these barbarians, who were not killed by the shot, found a grave in the sea. The public are cautioned against a set of sharpers, who are passing newly manufactured fictitious notes, which are better known by the name offlash screens, payable at the Bench and the Fleet. They are so well executed as to escape notice, the one bearing a close resemblance to a bank note. A seizure of 10,0001. was made on Thursday, at the Custom- house, of gold, in bars, regularly entered and sworn to at Guildhall as foreign gold.— Wm. Jones was thesame day committed to Cold- bath- fields Prison, on a charge of buying guineas at a greater price than the legal currency— William Dickins, keeper of the turnpike gate at Hyde Park Corner, is also in custody for a similar offence. Last wet k a person was convicted before the Magis- trates at Gainsborough, for buying corn contravy to the Winchester measure, and paid the sum of I'll 10s. being the full value thereof, besides the penalty of40s. The Noyeau sold at the late Duke of Queer, sherry's sale at sixteen pounds four shillings per do. zen, was purchased for his Grace not long ago from ' the manu- factory in London, for six guineas per I'. ozen. So much for the efficacy of a great man's y. ine- cellar! How it meliorates and enhances the value of liquors I At a grand pigeon- match in Wiltshire, hist week, in which Capt. Hicks, a famous shot, cou tended with the gamekeeper of C. W. Morris, Esq.. the parties exceeded in science any thing before hi ard of. The match was for 100 guineas a- side, at 15 birds, at the usual distance of 21 yards, and each killed bis num- ber. In shooting off ties at seven otlucr birds, Capt. Hicks missed his sixth, which gave flincksman, the keeper, the stake contended for. Mr. Aldriilge, the celebrated sn'ipc- shooter, has matched himself for 200 guineas, to kill eighteen wild piegeons in 21 shots, from 3. trap at 21 yards distance. Crib, rather than quietly resign, his native cham- pionship, has consented again to fight Molineux, but for what sum is not yet stated.— Young Belcher had a sparring benefit this week, wh ich produced him 701. admission money, besides disp osing of tickets to a greater amount. A few days ago Thomas B11 ck, of St. Dunstan's, Canterbury, was found hangi ng in the premises of Mr. Pillow, by whom he wiis employed, ' flic i) c- 1 eased had left a 11. note, with which he was going to purchase a gallon of 111111, in the care of a publican j and a person in the company : telling him " that he was connected with the late rot iberv of the Canterbury Bank," so affected the poor fellow's mind, that he immediately went and comini ttcd the rash act; leaving a w ife itnd uiue children to la? lent his unfortunate end, Royal East Glocester Regiment, commanded l) y Lifcn't.- Colohel Sir Berkeley William Guise, Barf.

ADISPATCH, of wliicil tlic following is an ex- tract, was this morning received at Lord Liver- pool's Office, addressed to his Lordship by Lieutenant- Gmeral Viscount Wellington, dated Nissa, April 18, 1811. Having made arrangements for the blockade of Al- meida, and having reason to believe that the enemy's army will not be in a situation for some time to at- tempt to relieve that place, even if they should be so inclined, I have taken advantage of the momentary discontinuance of active operations in that quarter to gt> into Estrcmadura, to the corps under Marshal Sir W. Beresford, and I have got thus far on my way. Lieut.- Gen. Sir li. Spencer remains in command of the corps ou the frontiers of Castillo. Nothing of im- portance has occurred in that quarter since I addres- sed your Lordship on the 9th inst. The enemy retired entirely from the Agueda; and, it is reported, that some of their troops had gone b;" k as far as Zamora and Toro, upon the Douro. Marshal Sir W. Beresford was not able to effect his passage across the Guadiana as soon as he expected -, and the enemy have introduced some provisions into Badajoz and Olivenca. Sir Wm. Beresford's advanc- ed guard crossed the Guadiana on the 4th instant; and I am concerned to report that a squadron of the 13th light dragoons, which were on picket under Ma- jor Morrcs, were surprised, on the night ofthe 6th, by a detachment ofthe enemy's cavalry from Oliven- ca. I have not received the return of the loss upon this occasion, but I am informed that the whole squad- ron, with\ the cxceptifin of twenty men, were taken prisoners. The enemy have since retired, as I am informed, entirely from Kstremadura, leaving small garrisons in Badajoz and Olivenca. Marshal Sir Wm. Beresford has taken a position to invest both Badajoz and Olivenca. A detachment from the 5th army, which is now commanded by Gen. Castanos, is, I understand at Merida. Since I last addressed your Lordship, Gen. Zay- as had again landed the troops under his com- mand, and had again embarked them, and return- ed to Cadiz. Gen. Ballasteros's division alone therefore continues in the Candado di Niebla; but from a letter from Mr. Wellcsley of Ihe lltli, I learn that Gen. Blake was himself about to come into the Candado di Niebla to take the command of Gen. Bal- lasteros's division, and the troops which had been un- der the command of Gen. Zayas, and which were to return to that quarter, fieri. Iilakc had expressed^ an anxious desire to co- operate with Marshal Sir Wm. Beresford. Gen. Castanos has been appointed to command the army in Gallicia, as wi ll as the 5th army, lately the army of the left, commanded by the late Marquis of Romans. FOREIGN- OFFICE, DOWNING- STREET, APRIL 30. Dispatches were this morning received by the Mar- quis Wcllesley, from Clias. Stuart, Esq. his Majesty's Minister at Lisbon, under date the 20th inst. stating, that the garrison of Olivenca, consisting of 310 men, surrendered at discretion to the allied army on the 14th inst. and was marched to Elvas. Marshal Mortier, with 4000 men, was in the neigh- bourhood of Llerena, having detached a moveable co- lumn, under Gen. Martiniere, by the way of Ahnarez, towards Toledo.- Gen. Beresford, w ith that part of the allied army which does not form the siege of Ba- dajoz, w as in the neighbourhood of Santa Martha. The corps of Gen. Ballasteros had its bead- quarters in Segnra dc Leone, on the 13th ; his cavalry was at Zafra on the 13th, ou which day Lord Wellington left Villa Pernio ou the Coato join the army in Estrema- dura. FOREIGN- OFFICE, APRIL 30.— A dispatch, of which the ftnlowiug is an extract, was this morning1] received by the Marquis Weltesley from Charles Stu- art, Esq. at Lisbon, under date the ' 20th inst. The brilliant successes of the allied army have been celebrated by every demonstration of joy w hich can mark the gratitude of the Portuguese for the ex- ertion of the British in their behalf, and the satis- faction inspired by the salvation ot their country. [ By the above Gazette it will be seen that Lord Wellington has left the British army in the north of Portugal, and is gone to take the command of the army under Marshal Beresford, who, according to private accounts, ( having left a sufficient force to in vest Badajoz) arrived at Zafra oil the 17th, in pursuit of Mortier; this place is about 70 miles from Seville; on the road to it our troops made 300 prisoners. Ballasteros, with 10,000 men, is at Megutr; here he is to be joined by Blake, who embarked at Cadiz on the 14th, with 14,000 men ; they will then advance towards Seville, near which place it is expected that Marshal Beresford will join them with about 20,000 nun. The enemy cannot oppose to the allies more than 22,000 men, without raising the siege of Cadiz. Events therefore have rendered the south of Spain a point of great interest. With the exception of the siege of Almeida, the operations in Portugal are of little importance. Massena's advanced guard has reached Valladolid, in a most deplorable state. No intention seems to be manifested of pursuing the enemy- into Spain; they have left about 1200 men in Almeida and 300 in Ciudad Rodrigo.] The French have rebuilt the bridge, and repaired the fortifications of Badajoz, and supplied it with stores, which leads to a supposition that they intend standing a siege. Badajoz is only a third or fourth- rate fortified place. Tire necessaries of life arc so abundant at Lisbon, that a merchant vessel which sailed from this country w ith articles of the first necessity, lias returned w ith- out breaking bulk. A donation of a large quantity of salt fish from the British Government, for the relief ofthe Portuguese, has been most gratefully accepted by the Regency. Some letters by the Lisbon packet state that a quan- tity of concealed gunpow der lias been found on board some American ships in the Tagus. This is supposed to have been connected with the plan which we men- tioned some time ago, to destroy our ships. Colonel Waters, who was taken prisoner in the action of Sabugal, arrived oil the 12th inst. at the head- quarters of Lord Wellington, from Val Formosa, having effected his escape from the French near Salamanca. The letters by the Cadiz mail exhibit a deplorable picture of the state of affairs at the seat of Govern- ment : every Member of the Junta is dissatisfied with his situation; no cordiality, no harmony exists among them. The whole of the Spanish Generals arc held in utter contempt, and the few well- disposed inha- bitants of Cadiz do not hesitate publicly to say that an entire change of system can alone save their country, adding that had it not been for the presence of theBri- fish troops, the French party, w hich is very strong in Cadiz, would long since have delivered up the fortress to the enemy. According to the private accounts, the Regency still declined to confer upon Lord Wellington the au- thority of Generalissimo ; or even to accept a pro- posal which he had made, for permission to raise two corps of Spaniards of 20,000 men each, to be taken Sfco British pay. Under these circumstances, it is under ; rdod, that the British and Portuguese troops will iiot advance into Spam, butoecupy three, posi- tions with a view to the exclusive defence of Portugal. An article under the head of Madrid inserted in a late Cadiz Journal, says, that Joseph was preparing in take his departure, disgusted with the state of tars. By a gentleman who is arrived in town from the Russian capital, we learn, that during the space of the last two months, upwards of 800 pieces of artil- lery had been forwarded to the various frontier towns of Russia. Ail immense army had also followed in the same direction ; and the general impression on the public was, that a war with France was on the eve of taking place. With respect to trade, the in- telligence from St. Petersbnrgli is most afflicting. Immense quantities of produce were on hand, for which there was no vent. The only hope of the mer- chants being saved from utter ruin, was in some favourable determination on the part of our Govern- ment with respect to a limited trade by licences. A letter, dated Gottenburgh, April 22, says, " Tilings are better in Russia since the Emperor Alexander's declaration to Napoleon, to preserve a strict neutrality: to maintain which, he has ordered an army of 300,000 men to be in readiness to enforce it. Nopoleon, it issaid, has consented to Alexander's plan. The French were sending additional numbers of troops in the direction of Dantzic, and the Russian Government has ordered a considerable force into Livonia and Courland, which had already set on!, its march. Large bodies of Prussian troops had been recalled from their agricultural pursuits, and were assembling at various points. The King of Prussia, it was expected, was about to repair to Koningsberg. Swedish cruisers are fitting out against the Danish and French privateers ill the Baltic, which are now- looked upon in no other light than pirates." Accounts from Heligoland to the 24th inst. state that almost the whole of the Vrencli troops had quit- ted the opposite coast, and marched for the frontier of Prussia. The King of Sweden continued to live on board the Horatio frigate: it is said he has re- quested to be conveyed in her to the Baltic. This morning the following account from Barbadoes was received. If America suffers her ports to be con- verted into French ports, it is high time time they should be treated as such:—" BAKBADOES, FEB. 28. — Several large French privateers, fitted out in Ame- rican ports, arc cruising off Guadalonpe. One of them is a ship of 24 guns, called the Wagram.— Our men of war are gone in pursuit of them. A letter from a gentleman of great respectability in America, states, that a general opinion seems to pre- vail, that a separation of the States is an event likely to happen at no very distant period. The inhabitants of the Northern States are very much dissatisfied with the proceedings of the Government, and openly avow their intention of opposing, by every means in their power, a war with Great Britain. At sonic public dinners which have been recently given in these States, the following toasts were drank:—" King George the Third."— " May we never forget the land in which the bones of our ancestors arc buried." Advice has been received from America ofthe arri- val of Lord Courtney, with his yacht, iu Blandlbrd river, 111 Virginia. Letters from Paris to the 26th ult. were received yesterday. They communicate, that the embarrass- ments of the commercial classes were daily increasing. Some of the oldest and best established houses in that city have been under the necessity of yielding to the pressure ofthe times, and suspending their payments " Such," adds one ofthe letters, " are the happy ef- fects of the Continental System." There is in the Moniteur of the 15th ult. a report made to Bonaparte of a plot formed by an English offi- cer of the name of Owen to surprise Belle Isle. It is a most ridiculous report, and when we state that the English naval officer who formed the plot was repre- sented as the person who discovered it to the French Government, and betrayed his accomplicc, there is not a man who will believe the assertion. Slate of his Majesty's Health.—" April 27,1811.— The King is going on well." We are assured that the Phy- sicians, at an examination on Saturday, unanimously recommended, that hi « Majesty's mindlshall continue undisturbed by any | ubli • business whatever tor the present. i We are happy to find that public meeting ariT about to be called to congratulate the Prince Regent on the truly glorious' and substantially beneficial re- sult of the campaign in Portugal, and that a motion to the same effect is likely to be shortly made in the Common Council of the City of London. In the House of Lords, on Monday, Lord Viscount Sidmouth gave notice, that he should, on the 9th of May, call their Lordships' attention to the important subject of the Toleration Laws, and should on that day state his sentiments at length. His Lordship moved that the Lords be summoned for that day.— In the Commons, a new writ was ordered, on the motion of Mr. Swart, for the borough o'f Weymouth, in the room of Sir James Pultency, Bart, deceased. Lord Palmcrston brought up a bill for increasing the inn- keepers' rates for soldiers. It is reported that the Speaker of the House of Commons will retire from the Chair at the end of the present session. He is to be called up to the House of Lords by the title of Baron Kidbrook, and with the appointment of Speaker of that House, to assist the Lord Chancellor, retaining bis present salary of 60001. a year.— Mr. C. W. Wynne, Mr. Vansittart, and Mr. Bragge Bathurst, arc mentioned to succeed Mr. Abbott. The consideration of the Berkeley Peerage case being further resumed in the Committee of Privileges, on Friday, the Countess of Berkeley underwent a very long chief and cross- cxamitiation, principally by the Solicitor- General, on the part of the Crown, ke. and much discussion thereon took place in the Com- mittee. It was not until six o'clock that their Lord- ships adjourned the further consideration of the case till Thursday. The crowds below the bar were greater than on any former instance in our recol- lection, even iu the most interesting periods of the Regency Question. Captain Hall, late commander of the Cadiz flotilla, is appointed to the important charge of the maritime defence of Sicily. The Wellesley packet is arrived at Plymouth with dispatches from the Isle of France, now the Isle of England, in 72 days. A French brig, Outward bound, with important dispatches to India, has been taken by our cruizers. A schooner, name unknown, was captured on Mon- day night, off Dover, by two French privateers, at 7 o'clock; the brig Wclconic Friends, from Swansea, was driven on shore Hiider South Foreland; the brig Esperance,. of Lynn, ditto; Plineus, of Edinburgh, ditto; and the brig Alert, of Sunderland, ditto; two brigs are supposed to have gone to Ramsgate, and one sloop got into Dover; three of the enemy's pri- vateers were lying under the South Foreland, with close- reefed main- sails, and two of them, next morn- ing at 7 o'clock, made an attempt to capture a large ship, but were foiled. The report of the capture of the Cork fleet is un- founded. It was fabricated by some unprincipled master of a vessel which arrived at Martinique, with a view, it is said, of procuring a ready and profitable market for his cargo. The Victory, Sir James Saumarez, sailed on Fri- day from Portsmouth for the Baltic. Sir E. Pellew is appointed to the Mediterranean station, in the room of Sir C. Cotton. The Royal Academy dinner, on Saturday, was honoured with the presence of the Prince Regent, the Dukes of Clarence and Kent, aud many of the nobility. THE BRITISH NAVY.— There are now in com- mission 758 ships of war, of which 155 are ofthe line, 22 from 50 to 44 guns, 162 frigates, 145 sloops of war, 5 bombs and fire- ships, 163 armed brigs, 36 cutters, 70 schooners and luggers; besides which there are building, repairing, and in ordinary, a number that makes the whole amount 1043 ships of war, of which 255 art of the liue. An experiment of an improved method of charging with the bayonet took place yeitferday, by a detach- ment of the royal marines, in presence of the Lords of the Admiralty, and a committee of marine officers. The whole plan contains many very superior advan- tages over the present system, and particularly iu ena- bling the rear rank men to use their muskets in the charge, with similar effect, and at the same moment as the front rank, causing the men to stand in a stron- ger position, and enabling them either to attack or de- fend, at one instant, both the front and rear. It ap- pears to he particularly adapted to repel any attack that may be made by an enemy's boarders iu a naval engagement. The ipja » met with entire approbation; andf t is reported tha^ Uk^ M^ httjjed. JewsfiA Hol^ Tm^ viSminated to situa- tions ifif trust.— Several of them have recently been raised til the magistracy, ss commisioners of police. The Rrencli clergy are indebted to the policy of the French Government for several late decrees, which hale greatly ameliorated their condition. By one dated! 15th Feb. all curates in the departments of the Appeilioines, Loire, Montenotte, Po, Sesia, and Stura, wliojse annual incomes arc below 500 francs, are to receive the balance from the public treasury. Au arijofte has been adiltessed to the printers of the SlnvwsWry Chronicle, dated Ludlow, April 22, which jKys, " I takcthe liberty to inform you, the pa- ragrat/ i copied in your last paper, respecting Lucien Boi'.' parte and his family, is very incorrect, namely, tliuy have not proposed going into Worcestershire to reside; the servants are none of them Corsicans— they arc all Italians: they do not sleep in hammocks — there is no such thing in their house; and the house, at this time, is not more damaged, nor more dirty, than any other house of a similar size would be, when containing 50 people.— It has the appearance of great illiberality in your selecting a paragraph of this de- scription, because on this side of the country many persons know* its contents' ' of, be false ; aud if such in- vectives are copied into French newspapers, they may tend to excite unkindness'fi- om the French people to- wards our own suffering countrymen who are prisoners there. Lucien has, during his residence here, con- ducted himself politely- and inoffensively; and has re- gularly and liberally paid all reasonable demands upon him." VAUXHALL BRIDGE.— Contrary to expectation and the intention of the Directors of this undertaking, the laying of the first stone was postponed in conse- quence ofthe unfavourable weather during the morn- ing of yesterday. We understand that this grand ma- sonic ceremony will take place on Thursday next, when the Grand Lodge of Masons, with his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, will honor the occasion by a grand procession. bv CAPITA* FARMING STOCK, HORSES, kt.

MILITARY RIOT AT BRIGHTON.— Between the hours of eight and nine on Saturday night, a very se- rious disturbance took place in Church- street, be- tween the South Glocester militia and a detachment of the 10th royal hussars from the cavalry barracks. It seems that Saturday was the quarterly settlement day ofthe 10th, 011 which occasion the full arrears of pay accumulated during the preceding three months, were distributed where due, and which, perhaps, might have induced more than moderate sacrificcs subsequently to Bacchus, among the receivers. The bounties which those of the South Glocestcr militia will be entitled to, who intend exchanging the nature of their present services for that of the line, on Wed- nesday, the lst of May, it seems, had also operated to occasion them to celebrate their determination by public- house jollifications. At the Brewers'- Arms, therefore, in Church- street, it appears that various of the two parties met, among w hom a quarrel ulti- mately took place, and which, soon after, arrived at a pitch to put the whole neighbourhood into an up- roar. The picquet- guard, and several of the officers of the South Gloccster militia at length interposed, and, effectually, to separate the combatants, and a Serjeant of the 10th, and three or four privates of the same corps, in the end were secured, and lodged in the South Glocester guard- house. During the conflict an officer, a subaltern of the South Glocester, had the feather in his hat severed by a sudden stroke from a . sabre. The 10th dragoons have long been in de- served estimation in this town and district; nor can men, generally speaking, be more quiet and exemplary in their behaviour, than are the South Glocester mi- litia in their quarters. On Svmday evening similar disturbances took place, in which some ofthe dragoons lost their sabres, having them wrenched from them by the South Glocester pioquet- gi which was commendably alert on the occasion, and many were conducted as prisoners to the guard- lhousc. In Castle- square an officer of the militia was rather rudely treated by the dragoons, but the guard eventually came to his assistance, and the chief offenders were secured. At the Hunting, donian Chapel, in North- street, where the Rev. Row- land Hill wa « preaching, much confusion at one time predominated , for a soldier or two of the South Glo- cestcr, who w ere closely pursued by those ofthe 10th, sought refuge ft'iere, and where their pursuers folio wed them with as little hesitation and ceremony, the shrieks of the women, and the exhortations of the preacher being e qually disregarded. From the chapel the soldiers agt in found their w ay to the street, where they encot'infcred fresh opponents, and where, in the general confusion, it was impossible to dis- tinguish the particular conduct of any. It gave 11s great pleasure to behold two or three of the officers ofthe 10th, as well as those ef the South Glocestcr, exceedingly active i n suppressing the riot, and the soldiers eventually retired to their quarters and the barracks, at tlieirinterposition.

IT was reported on ' Change yesterday, that accounts had been received of the King of Prussia having come to the resolution of joining the Emperor Alexan- der in a war against France. We mention tins rumour without pretending to atlach any credit to it. New instances of the complete distress and contu- sion in which the French abandoned Portugal become known by every communication from our army, or front Lisbon. l etter* from officers of the Light Brigade, dated Villa Formosa and Nisa, the 18th nit. state, that head- quarter* were at the above place. Almeida had not surrendered— was garrisoned by 2000 men; Cuulad Rodrigo garrisoned by 2000 men, but badly supplied; Lord Wellington was gone to Elvas, to inspect and re- view the Portuguese troops, leaving ( Jen. Spencer in command; Marshal Beresford was atZafra; Olivenca fell " II the 14th, 350 prisoners;. Badajoz contained 40QO troops, w ell supplied w ith provisions, ammuni. hon. & c. , , It was reported this morning that Ballasteros had had an affair with Mortier, in which he was worsted; but it is not believed. Mortier seemed by the lastac- Connts to be anxious to avoid any action. He bad, on that account, taken the road to Llcrena. There lias been a gallant alliiir between a party of Portuguese cavalry," headed bv Marshal Beresford, and some French' dragoons. ' The former charged and broke tlieni ill great style, receiving repeated huzzas from I the British troops who witnessed theaftair. A vessel has arrived front Cadiz, which place she ' M> on the 171li, and we have the pleasure to learn, that the expedition under General Blake, which bad not actually sailed, when tlte prior accounts came awav, went out of the harbour on the 15th, tor Aya- nionte. The above report, that Mortier had defeated ilallasteros, was unknown at Cadiz, where, if true, I ich intelligence would have been received sooner than » t Lisbon. There are letters from T ishon, dated the 21 st, which late, that Marshal Beresford had sent to that city for battering train of artillery, in order to bombard Ba- ijoz. Provisions were plentiful and cheap at Lisbon. Some of our officers who ate returned from Portu- ; 1 oil account of ill health, have brought over with : £ in beautiful Spanish galloways, of high Arabian blood, several of which arc rode daily through the streets at the west end of the town.

HOUSE OF COMMONS— WEDNESDAY. The House resolved itself into a Committee ofSup- ji- f. A copy of the Sicilian Treaty, presented to the . use on the I Oth of June, 1808, by Mr. Secretary earning, was ordered to be referred to the same. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER moved, " That it is the opinion of this Committee, that a sum, not exceeding 400,000i. be granted to his Majesty, for making good tbe engagements entered into by treaty with his Sicilian Majesty." On the question being put, Mr. WHITBREAD said, , , that he did not rise to oppose the grant, but to ex- press bis opinion, that, notwithstanding the elation of iflie public mind, in consequence of the prosperity of nnftoreign relations, it became the Members of that Ho § e to be most carefully on the watch. At the time of ( subsidizing the Court of Sicily, the House should knf) , v how the assistance is to be applied, and should . - ernlenveur to remeilf ajiovernmciit, than which u • e more profligate ever existed upon the face of the eajrh. He took the opportunity of expressing his ' | ret that he was not in his place on Friday last, when tii Chancellor of the Exchequer proposed to the I iuse a Motion of Thanks to Lord Wellington. This •" ffence he regretted the more, for be should have cordially concurred with the motion, and would have bettowed on the King's Ministers a praise which he never before thought their due, for the selection of so able a General. He was also happy to say, that not- withstanding the doubts which arose in his mind at different periods of the campaign, and his opinion that • some parts of it w ere exceptionable, the whole now appeared to be a masterly plan, doing honour to its author by its success. He should have been happy to give Lord Wellington his sincere tribute of praise, and to express it in the words quoted, on a former occasion, by a young and eloquent Gentleman in that House ( Mr. Peele,) invidiam gloria superavit. He conceived that the only legitimate object ot'a war, aud of this war in particular, is peace. This should never be lost sight of. We should, therefore, en- deavour to use the advantage we had gained, ( for in all times we should never be led astray by success. He did not oppose the motion. Tbe CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER observed, that this vote had been submitted to the Committee in consistency with the tieaty, which had met with the approbation of Parliament. It would be extraor- dinary, under existing circumstances, to withhold it during the continuation ofthe war. He could not forbear expressing his regret at the sentiments of the I ton. Gentleman respecting the Government of Sicily; for if any thing could prevent thegood effects resulting • from the assistance of a British army, it was to set the people of a country against their Government. Such language as the Hon. Gentleman had used, was not likely to promote the cause in which we had engaged. The House well knew that the object of sending an , army to Sicily was to keep it independent of France. The manner in which the Hon. Gentleman expressed his praise of Lord Wellington, was as creditable to the gallant General as to himself ( Mr. W.) He was most Tiappy at bearing his unreserved approbation.— Re- specting his general observations on peace, neither lie could think, nor he believed anv other Hon. Member, • or ifny man in ( he country, with roe Hon. r^ ntlemnn, that this was precisely the moment favourable to the • attainment of the object professed by the Hon. Mem- ber. No Gentleman would think of denying, that the oulv legitimate object of all war was a safe and honou- rable peace; but if the Committee, as he was per- suaded it was, should be. of opinion that the present moment was not favourable to that object, he could not consider the discussiou of that topic useful on this occasion. Mr. WHITCRKAB wished to vindicate himself from • w hat the Right Hon. Gentleman thought an imprudent characteristic of the Government of Sicily. He , thought that in the course of this war there were many times in which tbe Emperor of France might have been approached with hopes of peace. He might be considered enthusiastic, but he would say, that such was the present moment, for we were now at the height of our success; while the trie my suffered the utmost pressure. Mr. WILLIAM SMITH thought that it was now the time to recommend to Sicily a change in its GO « H>' ment. Sir T. Towro* said, that the moment of treating with the enemy was when we were successful. He was aware, of the unpopularity which this assertion would create ont of doors, but be conceived that an effort for. peace should be made by hi* Majesty's Ministers. He observed, that this country did not assist Sicily so much for its defence, as to establish its Government, and to effect an amelioration of the sufferings of its people. , The resolution was then put and agreed to, and the report ordered to be received to- morrow. On the motion of Mr. Wharton, it was ordered, that the IT use Should resolve itself into a Committee to- morrow, to consider tk$ Slate ftt tho Inland Navi- gation with Loudon, (^ IOCESTER* SATURDAY, MAY 4.

At our comity sessions last week, was tried, an ap- peal to an order of removal of a female pauper from Clifton, in this county, to Leigh, in Dorsetshire. The first question turned on the validity of a marriage. On Mr. Donovan's cross- examination of the pauper, it ap- peared that she was married by licence at the age of 20 years, without the consent of her father, who was then living. The. marriage was declared void, as being contrary to the Marriage Act.— We understand a simi- lar case occurred at our last Epiphany city sessions. — It is important that a law so clear, and involving so many serious consequences, both to families and parishes, should be generally understood. On Saturday John Harris was committed to our County Goal, by Martin Lucas, Esq. charged with stealing poultry, the property of Sarah Purser, of Deerhurst Walton: and, same day, Maltha Jakes, by H.

At Shrewsbury fair on Wednesday, fat cattle and sheep were considerably higher than at the former fair; lean stock in general found purchasers. Pigs rather declined in value.— There was no alteration in the price of cheese since the last fair. Last week as some men were at work in a wood at Abbots Lencb, Worcestershire, they sprang a wood- cock, the appearance of which at this season being very unusual, they were induced to examine near the spot if there was any nest; they accordingly found one with four eggs ill it, and it appearing that the birds w ere nearly hatcjied, means were taken to con- tinue the warmth necessary for that purpose, and the next day they were brought forth, but did not live many hpifrs. Some sportsmen in the neighbourhood have had two of them stuffed. An inquest was last week taken by Mr. Fidkin, Coroner, at Redmarley, on the body of John Hands, a boy about 14 years of age, who was found strangled by- an ox- chain fastened round his* neck, and fixed to a beam in itu ox- liotise belonging to his master. Ver- dict, accidental death. William Yates has been committed to Worcester county goal for stealing a boy of 8 years of age, the child of Joseph Smith, of Northfield. A respite, during his Majesty's pleasure, has been received for William Bradbury, now lying under sen- tence of death in Warw ick county goal, for selling forged Bank of England dotes.

SINGULAR OCCURRENCE.— A few days since, a person walking over his farm near the Hazles, iu the parish of Stanton, Salop, observed a large crow strike violently at something on the ground, and soon rose with a fine leveret in hct claws. The cries of the little captive, however, soon drew the attention of its parent, who actually pursued over tw; o fields, jumping at the crow, which could not rise more than ( 3 or 8 feet from the ground, and was at length obliged to drop her prize; which poor puss immediately took up in her mouth, and carried in triumph to her hiiling- placc. LOCAL MILITIA.— It may 1> Q useful information to state that all Local Militia Men are required to bring with them, on assembling on' duty, two good shirts, and two pair of good shoes, as welt as any other articles belonging to regimental clothing and appointments which they may have'taken away when disembodied last year, iu case of failure of which the ten shillings and six- pence allowed for necessaries on the present year's training, will be appropriated to make good all such deficiencies. If from ill health they are unable to attend, they are to transmit a Certificate thereof, signed by a medical practitioner, addressed to tbe •- commanding'officer.— Such men as were trained in " each respective regiment last year, are considered as belonging to such regiment, notwithstanding they may happen to reside in the divisions assigned to furnish men for other regiments.

THANKS TO LORD WELLINGTON. ON Friday night the Thanks ot' both Houses of Parliament were unanimously voted to Lord Wellington and the Officers and Army under his com- mand.—' The speeches delivered on this occasion were worthy of the subject, anil did equal honour to the heads and hearts of the distinguished persons by whom they were spoken. in the Commons the motion was made by the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer, and seconded by Mr. Can- ning, w ith a glow of eloquence, and a facility in the choice of the topics, which were universally felt by the House, and candidly and honourably acknow- ledged by the Opposition. The motion was conducted with die same talent in the House of Peers, and met with a similar reception. Mr. PerceV* in one House, and Lord Liverpool in the other, most ably exposed and refuted the invidious insinuations so frequently dealt in by the advocates of the party, not only by repeated proofs of the fore- Sight and the skill with which Lord Wellington had anticipated and prepared the result of the campaign, hut by references to two private dispatches of that illustrious Commander, written last December, in which lie developes his plan to Hie Noble Secretary of State, and the reasons which induced him to prefer waiting for the result of that plan— the compelling the enemy to retreat— rather than risk the loss of precious lives, which must be sacrificed in a victory, howeversplendid and decisive, while equal, or far great- er disasters might be inflicted upon him in a retreat, without comparatively any loss oil our side. In pay- ing the tribute so justly due to Lord Wellington for the foresight, judgment, r. nd skill displayed by him on this great occasion, Mr. Perceval, with equal truth and eloquence, impressively observed, amidst the uni- versal plaudits of the House, that" as long as a vestige of the present eventful times remain on record— as long as it shall be congenial to the heart of man to be gratified with military glory, not iu extending the ambitious projects of a tyrant, but in resisting tyranny and defending the oppressed— as long as execration shall follow the contemplation of violence and in- justice— as long as praise shall be deemed due to the most zealous and patriotic exertions in a righteous cause— so long shall the character of Lord Wellington be venerated by posterity, and be embalmed in tbe w-' mor, '."' I gratitude of mankind." Earl Grey followed the Earl of Liverpool in the House of Lords; and it is impossible to speak ill terms too high ofthe manliness ami magnanimity with which he acknowledged the unsoundness of his former opinions and predictions, or the warmth and alacrity with which he rejoiced that they had been falsified by the event. — With equal candour did he allude to his former op- position to a vote of thanks to Lord Wellington after the battle of Talavera, because he thought the result of that battle was not sufficiently decisive, to deserve such a mark of distinction, w hich, to make it valuable, should never be conferred but for splen- did and decisive services. The service for which it was now proposed, was pre- eminently of that descrip- tion ; and lie concurred in the vote which conferred it with the most unfeigned cordiality and satisfaction. Indeed in both Houses, both sides seemed to vie with each other in acknowledging the foresight, the fortitude, the skill, and the perseverance so con- spicuously displayed by Lord Wellington throughout the whole of this memorable campaign, and in ad- mitting him to have every claim to the highest honours which tlie admiration aud the gratitude of his country could bestow. We have now a General and an Army, who not only equal, but surpass, in skill and science, as in discipline and vaiour, tiie boasted veterans of France ; and, after our BUS have been so long stunned with the praises of tlie French Generals, we may be al- lowed to observe, with Lord Liverpool, that to the lot of Lord WeJiiugtoei it has fallen to defeat six of the twelve Marshals « f France— ist, Marshal Junot, DukeofAbrantes; 2d, Marshal Soult, Duke of Dal- matia; 3d, Marshal Jouidau; 4th, Marshal Victor, Duke of Iteltuno; 5th, Marshal Ncy, Duke of El- cJiingiu; a « < 3 6 th, though last, not least, Marshal Masseua, Prince of Esii « s, tlic spoiled child of vic- tory, the most consummate Capt. of all Bonaparte's • Generals.— Most forcibly did tiie Chancellor of the Exchequer speak of the benefits that may probaldy result, not only to the Peninsula, but to all Europe, from the accomplishment of tiie great object so ad- mirably planned by our gallant aud illustrious Chief; and alluding to the ridicule which persons attempted to tfa- ow upon the honest patriotic exultation felt and expressed on this occasion, he in language devoutly eloquent, observed; " When it is said that£ we ought to bless our stars and hold our tongue,' I cannot fol- low the advice. I thauk my God, but I cannot hold mv tongue. I must proclaim to this House, to the country, and to the world, the merits of that illustri- ous man who has Itceti the instrument under Provi- dence of effecting this great good." Universal cheers accompanied turn throughout; the whole of his most admirable and impressive address. BANK OF ENGLAND. The following letter has been addressed by Samuel Hoare, Esq. to the Governors and Directors of the Bank of England: " GrsTi. EMLN, The irterest which I have always taken in the general good conduct and management of the Bank, renders it impossible for me to view, with- out considerable anxiety, the numerous and increasing difficulties which now assail the establishment. There never was a period which demanded the exercise of more talent, firmness, aud discretion, iu order to avert the impending dangers of our situation. It does not require much sagacity or foresight to perceive, that a severe and alarming blow is aimed at the indepen- dence of the Corporation, by those who are neither competent to appreciate its value to ourselves, or justly estimate, its importance to the general interests and welfare of the community at large. To persons intimately acquainted with the tr « e principles of finance, it is unnecessary to explain, that the confi- dence of the public cannot be maintained io the soli- dity of the present circulating modium, wittiout a, total exclusion of every act of power and authority from the direction and management of the Bank; and that whenever the period arrives, that the Corpo- ration becomes identified with the Goveruinentof the country, and they exercise the power of limiting or extending the issue of paper according to their dis- cretion; I say, if that epoch shouldever arrive, it may be considered as the signature to the death- w » rraiu ofthe Bank of England. " The generality of writers upon the subject of iinance may be classed under two distinct heads.— The one contending that the paper constituting the existing circulating medium of the country has no influence, nor in any manner operates, upon tire fo- reign exchanges, the price, plenty, or scarcity of bullion.—' The other, that the extension of our paper circulation is the eftle occasion of the unfavourable state of the exchange, increased price and scarcity of gold and silver; and that a reduction of the paper ' alone » ilt remedy the evil. " Upon an accurate investigation of the subject, I suspect that both these opinions are erroneous, and tltit the truth wilt be found { as is generally the case) to lay between the two extremes, each of them having souta operation in producing tbe evils complained of, ttujugh by no mentis equal in their relative importance. The eitoraioiM increase which has taken place in our foreign expenditure, the immense sums which have beeu paid tor neutral freights, combined with a large importation of goods from abroad, have i/ i my esti- mate exceeded hy otany millions the amount, profits, and advantages ot our exports; aud as I know of no means which can be devised to discharge this balance, but by the exportation of bullion, to this cause may faiily be attributed the general scarcity of money. When a large pro lit attends the exportation of a com- modity which may be confined within so small a bulk, there are ao restiietive laws, however severe, that will secure itscoutiuaanee in the country. " Although there is great difficulty in ascertaining the tuiuuc. in which paper operates upon the ex- changes, and the most able writers do not give a satis- factory explanation of the subject, there appears strong presumptive evidence in favour of the fact; and one circumstance seems perfectly plain and indis- putable, that if bullion it an article of commerce and merchandize, a considerable increase in the circulat- ing medium, which is acknowledged to have the effect of enhancing the price of all purchasable commodities, must have some influence upon this, admitting the statement to be correct, a decrease of paper will di- minish the price of bullion.— The new principle adopt- ed bv the Court of Directors, that no other limits should I*; prescribed to the issue of tlieir paper, but de- mand ; and that all good bills which ate presented to them may be discounted, without creating excess ; appears to me not only liable to material exception, but if acted upon to the extreme, would be attended with very serious evils. The Hank paper, in that case, instead of being confined within about twenty milli- ons, would soon double the amount; aud the idea which the Court of Directors have adopted, that the paper will return to them, if extended beyond proper limits, appears to me very theoretical— there are so many speculators, adventurers, and projectors, both in commerce, canals, and the public funds, & c. who can probablv furnish tiie liauk with very unexception- able security, and would employ any sums of money they could borrow at five per cent, with the expec- tation of realising a profit often per cent. Under such circumstances, there is too mtich reason to fear that an ex- cess, which even the Directors themselves' would deem improper, must unavoidably take place, before the paper reverted to them. The' natural consequences resulting from the measure would be an important de- preciation in fcha value of money, and au increased price iu all the necessaries of life. Although I know it to be impracticable for the Bank to resume their pay- ments at the time proposed by the Report ofthe Bul- lion Committee, unless a total stop is put to our im- ports and foreign expenditure ; yet it is extremely de- sirable that the Court of Directors should be guided themselves by those limitations, and that discretion in the issue of their paper, which are absolutely neces- sary as a preliminary measure, and will not only have the effect of giving additional confidence to the public in its solidity, and decrease the prevalent spirit of hoarding, but approximate the value of their paper to the current coin of the realm. Until this event takes place, the country cannot be considered in a state of perfect health and security.—- I remain, & c. Lombard- street, April 22. SAMUEL HOARE. MONUMENT TO LORD NELSON. We some time since gave a description ofthe monu- ment intended to be erected in Guildhall to the memo- ry of tbe Hero of Trafalgar. This work, which does great credit to the taste ofthe artist ( Mr. J. Smith,) having been finally completed ill the course of the week, was on Saturday opened for public inspection. The monument is adorned by the following inscription from the classical pen of the Right Honourable Richard Brinsley Sheridan :— TO HORATIO VISCOUNT AND BARON NELSON, Vice- Adiuiral of the White, and Knight of the most Honourable Order ofthe Baih. A Man amongst tew, who appear, At different periods, to have been created To promote the Grandeur, and add to the Security of Nations: Inciting by their hi< h example their Fellow- mortals, Through all succeeding Times, to pursue the course That leads to the exaltation of our imperfect Nature. PROVIDENCE, That implanted in Nelson's breast an ardent Passion for Renown, llad bounteously endowed him with the transcendant talents Nece.- sarv to the great purposes He was destined to accomplish. At an early period of life He entered into the Naval Service eif his Country; And early were the instances which mark'll The fearless nature and enterprize of his Character; Uniting to the loftiest Spirit, and the justest title to Self- confidence, A strict and humble obedience to The sovereign rule of Discipline and Subordination.

None of those jarring opinions, which have disgraced other parts of the kingdom, are known in Glasgow. The profession uni- versally recommend the practice, and the people al- most , as universally receive it. The few deaths by small- pox, which have occurred, within these last six years, have been exclusively among recent incomers, and the poorest and most wretched of the Highlanders and Irish. It appears from the records of the Vaccine Institution, that, previous to January, 18011, upwards of fourteen thousand five hundred had beeu inoculated gratis. Glasgow, February I, 1811. Dr. Barrey, a French physician, who has lately published the result of his enquiries " On the Vac- cine, and its Effects," has the following " Conclusion" to his work :— " I think I have given a sufficient answer to all the objections that have been made against Vaccination up to tbe present day, by the facts produced in its favour, the various experiments ] have myself made, and the happy results that have followed. The cor- rect tables that 1 have inserted, of the number of deaths that have occurred before and since the prac- tice was adopted, are, in my opinion, the most satis- factory evidence, and every candid opponent must, of necessity, yield to proofs so completely convincing. — No farther reasoning seems necessary on the sub- ject— the first physicians of Europe have declared in its favour, and I have nothing to add to their observa- tions.— Under such authority the practice has been extended with facility, but not yet so universally as to accomplish that desirable object— the entire destruc- tion - of the Small Pox. " Let every benevolent man unite his efforts— let governments patronise, and parents understand their own interests and those of their offspring, and in a short time all Europe, or rather the whole globe,, will be delivered from the most dreadful of all scourges, " Even war and disease united cannot accomplish so much misery as the Vaccine will produce of benefit to mant- iwW" The subsetip lion tot makings tram- road from Aber » gavenny to Hereford, now amounts to 18,450(. aud we doubt not, from the known opulence of those places, it will be completed to 33,0001, long before November, which is the period fixed upon for aban- doning this beneficial undertaking, unless that sum be then subscribed. Independentof the vastadvantages it holds out to that county in general, and particular- ly to residents near the line where it is intended to pass, it is calculated this road, when finished, will pay an interest of 10 per cent, to the subscribers, or possibly more, besides considerably reducing the price of coals, which alone is a serious consideration to every one. From the liberal rapidity with which the funds for making the Brecon and Hay tram- road were completed, we doubt not this undertaking will meet with similar support, as the advantages promise to be equally great, both to the community at large and the subscribers. ALARMING RIOT AT SAMPFORD PEVERELL.— On Monday last a disturbance of a very serious nature occurred at Sampford Peverell. The annual fair, for the sale of cattle, & c. was held there on that day. On the Saturday preceding, a number of the workmen, employed iu excavating the bed of the Grand Wes- tern Canal, assembled at Wellington for the purpose of obtaining orange for ( Inpayment of their wages, which there has been lately considerable difficulty in .. procuring. Many of them got much intoxicated, and committed various excesses at Tiverton, and other places to which they had gone for the purpose above stated. On Monday the fair at Sampford seemed to afford a welcome opportunity for the gratification of their tumultuary disposition. Much rioting took place in the course of the day, and towards evening a body of these men, consisting of not less than 300, had assembled in the village.— Mr. Chave was met on the road, aud recognized by some of the party. Oppro- brious language was applied to him, but on what sub- ject we have not been informed. The rioters fol- lowed him to his house, the w indows of which they broke; and apprehensive of further violence, Mr. Chavc considered it necessary to his defence to dis- charge a loaded pistol at the assailants. This unfor- tunately took effect, and one man fell dead oil the spot. A pistol was also fired by a person within tbe house, which so severely wounded another man, that • is life is despaired of. A carter, employed by Mr. (. ' lave, was most dreadfully beaten by tbe mob. POPULATION Art.— At many of the quarter- sp ,' ions held last week tbe chief constables have been furnished with schedules for the ministers and over- seers i f the poor to take an account of the numbers in every parish in the kingdom. Householders refusing to give . in account of the persons constituting tlieir respective families, or giving a false answer to the questions forfeit a sainnot exceeding 51. nor less than 40s. The account is to be taken on the 27th of May inst. and t.' te . ostites of the pcace are to appoint a time and place between the 24th of June and the SOth of July, for the overseers to attend with the returns, which tliey are to tl'jigyyn oath. The officiating ministers are to transmit answers to the questions in the schedule relative to baptisms. & c. to the Bishop of the diocese, before the SOth ff June. ALARMING FoRr. ERIES.-- IV/ r* J> aper- currency of the country at large has already sujtaii\? 4. great injury, and is likely to suffer still more, by the ingenu. ty of the Frcncli prisoners of war confined at the diffe. ent depots throughout the kingdom.

REPORT. The prospect of a pi Ant'iiul produce in all kiwis of. grain, is highly gratifyin g tlironghout the three kit e doms. The wheats are genu rally good in all the prin- cipal corn districts, and N ort'olk and the other barley counticl! have derived tig- f - jtyi. e f- oni t" e late genial rains that they lib known for many years past. The beans and pi - ' in Kent and E-' cx, anil the oats in Lincoln, Canibr. idgeshire, See. are likely to benefit abundantly by the same prolific cause. We scarcely recollect to bavi seen the old meadow, and other grasslands, so full of feed as tliey are at this early season : bay, as the natural consequence, is falling weekly. Early potatoes plant well, and we are glad to see their extent of growth every year in- creasing. The hop plantations ofFarnham, Kent, and Sussex, look v eil, furnishing the pole with plenty of bine. Lean stock of most kinds was lower, and dull of sale, at lie beginning of tbe month ; but lias had a start iu I, is f from the expectation of plenty of feed. The men oiarkets have been well supplied with prime beef, ' iamb, and mutton; the Merino sheep, however, do not yet approach the South Downs at Smit'dickl in price, so near as several of our principal graziers were led to expect. No ad- vance or stir n the w ool trade since our last. STAIX Of THE WOOLLEN MANUFACTORY. Nat. ou) Cloths milled.

Any statement which tells against the prosperity ot our country, we make with pain i but in the present state of the Continent of Europe, seconded by the American predilection for France, this diminution in the woollen trade must have been expected. It is, however, a fine theme for those gloomy and despond- ing patriots, who seize every opportunity of aggravat- ing public calamity, who openly express pity for the sufferers but have an innate satisfaction at their suffer- ing.— The demagogue is always pleased with events that give a semblance of truth to his doctrines, if you ask him for a remedy, he will talk of PEACE ! " Is any man in the island stupid enough to give credence to such bombast?" Make Peace with the tyrant to morrow, and how much better will be the trade of this country ?
