So rapid was her progress to recovery, that ill three weeks she was entiicly free from auy Consumptive Symptom, and al this time is perfectly well, to the astonishment of our Medical Friend, and all that had witnessed her emaciated State.— I am.

A dispatch, of which the following is an extract, was on Sunday received at Lord Liverpool's Office, addressed to his lordship by Lieiitenanl- General Lord Viscount Wellington, dated Quinta de St. Jao, 20th June, 1811. The enemy moved forward his advanced guard, consist- ing ofabout 10,000 men, to Los Santos, ou the morniugof the 131 h.— Upon Ibis occasion Lieutenant Streeuuwitz, of tbe 21st Light Dragoons, was sent out by Major- General Sir William Erskine lo reconnoitre the enemy, with a small detachment of the 2d Hussars and 3d Dragoon Guards, which distinguished themselves in an attack upon a superior number of the enemy, and took some prisoners. — 1 bad arranged that t^ e cavalry, and 2d and 4th divisions ofthe allied British and Portuguese army, and the corps of Spanish troops under General Blake, should collect it the enemy should advance to interrupt the siege or blockade of Badajoz; and I went to Albuera on lhat night, to super- intend the movements ofthe troops.— 1 also moved, on the night of the 13th, General Hamilton's division from the blockade of Badajoz, w ith an intention to stop the enemy in case the Army of the South alone should have moved forward.— Ou the 14th, iu llie night, Lieutenant Ayling, of the 40th regiment, who had been employed to observe the movements of the enemy, arrived al Albuera with the account, that the advanced guard of the enemy's army of Portugal from Castile, had entered Truxillo on the 13th, which confirmed the other accounts that I had received of their progress up lo the I2tli, aud as from Truxillo they " M C I " R J might have been at Merida on the 15th, and in con, muni- refreshment, either of sleep or food cation with the army of the south, I determined to raise the blockade of Badajoz, and I hut all tbe allied troops should cross theGuadiana on the IJtli. This was accord- ingly eflected without difficulty or loss of any description ; and General Blake likewise crossed with his corps at Juramenha ou the 17th— Since that period, the allied British and Portuguese army have been encamped in the without loss of time off Charleston, where you may expect- to meet Captain Pcchell, in the Guerriere, to whom you will deliver the packet you will herewith receive, and follow bis orders for your further proceedings. Should you not meet the Gucrriere off Charleston, you will stand for the northward, aud use your utmost endeavours to join hint off the Capes of Virginia, or off New York: and in the event of not meeting the Guerriere, you will cruize as long as your provisions and water will last, and then repair to Halifax for further orders. You are to pay due regard to protecting tbe trade of his Majesty's subjects, and the capture or destruction of the ships of the enemy. Yon are to be particularly careful not to give any just cause of offence to the Government or subjects of the United States of Ame- rica ; and to give Very particular orders to this effect to the officers you may have occasion to send on board ships under the American flag.

On Tuesday and part of yesterday, we understand, his Majesty's pulse was as high as 120, and he took no " An express from Windsor, however, in the course of last night, brought the account that the pulse had fallen, and that he was more quiet.

And without exception the best pre- ventive of that MORTAL MALADY TUB APOPTEXY. It has been asserted from respectable authority, that a great majority of cases of epilepsv are incurable by any remedy that has yet been discovered.— And indeed some of the medicines prescribed by the faculty for this dreadful complaint, are not only inefficacious, but often hurtful.— Venesection, Electricity, Epispasties, are nearly powerless as Auti- Spasmodics. Valerian has been reckoned by many practitioners almost a specific in convulsion fits, but experience has proved that in nine cases out of ten it has been of no real service. Musk, Castor, AssafEetida, Peony Root, Vis- cus quercinus, Extractum hyo- cram, and many other re- medies, in which great confidence has been placed hy the faculty, have been used without success. A medical gen- tleman of the present day, has, however, discovered, after much study and labour, a remedv lor this disorder, which is in most cases an absolute specific; aud in tbe course of his extensive practice in one of the principal county towns in this kingdom, he uses it with complete and unvaiying suc- cess. To extend however so happy a discovery beyond the circuit of his immediate private practice, he has allowed it to be advertised, tor the 11- e of those afflicted with epilept c and convulsion fits, and the dreadful effects of those disorders.

Lou. 71. 49. W. Cape Charles bearing IV. 48 Miles. SIR,— I beg leave to acquaint yon, that in pursuance of your orders to join his Majesty's ship Guerrieve, and being 011 my return from the Northward, not having fallen in with her, lhat abuut 11 A. M. May 16, saw a strange sail, to which I immediately gave chace ; atone P. M. discovered her to be a man of war, « pp « <- r » . tly » fviftntc, ni. ndin^ to ttie east- ward, who, when be made us out, edged away for us, and . el bis royals ; made the signal 275, and finding " it not answered, concluded she was an American frigate, as she had a Com- modore's blue pendant flying at the main; hoisted the colours and made all sail south, the course I intended steer- ing round Cape Hatteras, the stranger edging away, but not making any more sail. At half- past three he made sail in chace, when I made ihe private signal, which was not an- swered. At half past six, finding he gained so considerably on us as not lo be able lo elude him during the night, being within gun- shot, aud clearly discerning Ihe stars in his broad pendant, I imagined the more prudent method was to bring 10, aud hoist the colours, that no mistake might arise, and that he might sec what we were; the ship w as therefore brought to, colours hoisted, guns double shotted, and every preparation made in case of a surprise. By his manner of steering down, he evidently wished to lay his ship ill a posjtiou for raking, which I frustrated by wearing three times. About a quarter past eight he came within hail. 1 bailed, and asked what ship it was ? He repealed my ques- tion. I again hailed, and asked what ship it was ? He again repeated my words, and fired a broadside, which I imme- diately returned. The action then became general, and continued so for three quarters of au hour, when he ceased firing, and appeared to be on fire about the main hatchway. He then filled. I was obliged to desist from firing, as tlie ship falling off, 110 gun would bear, and had 110 afier- sail lo keep her to. All the rigging and sails cut lo picccs, not a brace or bowline left, he hailed, and asked what ship this was; I told him; he then asked me if I had struck my co- lours ; mv answer was, 110, and asked what ship it was ? As plainly as I could understand, ( he having shot some dis- tance at Ibis lime) he answered, the United States frigate. He fired no more guns, but stood from us, giving 110 reason for his most extraordinary conduct. At day- light in the morning, saw a ship to windward, which having made out well what w^ were, bore up and passed within hail, fully prepared for action. About eight o'clock he bailed, and said, if I pleased he would send a boat 011 board : I replied in the affirmative, and a boat accordingly came with an offi- cer, and a message from Commodore Rogers, of tlie Presi- dent United States frigate, to say, that he lamented much the unfoi tunate affair ( as he termed it) that had happened ; and that had he known our force w as so inferior, he should not have fired al me. I asked his motive for having fired at | all i his reply was, that we fired the first gun at him, which ! was positively not the case. I cautioned both the officers] aud men, to be particularly careful, and not to suffer more than one man to be at the gun. Nor is it probable that a sloop of war, within pistol shot of a large 44 gun frigate, 1 should commence hostilities. He offered me every assist- j ance I stood in need of, and submitted to me that 1 had better put into one of the ports of the United States, which : I immediately declined. By the manner in which he apo- j logized, it appeared to me evident, that, had he fallen MI with a British frigate, he would certainly have brought her to action ; and what further confirms me in that opinion is, that his guns were not only loaded with round and grape shot, but with every scrap of iron that could possibly be collected. I have lo lament the loss of 32 men killed and wounded, among whom is the master. His Majesty's sloop is much damaged iu her masts, sails, rigging, and hull, and as there are many shot through between wind and water, and many shots still remaining in her side, and upper works all shot away, starboard pump also, I have judged it proper to proceed to Halifax, which will, I hope, meet with your approbation.— 1 cannot speak in too high terms of the officers aud men I have the honour to command, for their steady and active conduct throughout the whole of this business, who had much to do, as a gale of wind came on the second night after the action. My First Lieutenant, Mr. John Moberley, who is in every respect a most excellent officer, afforded me very great assistance in stopping the leaks himself in the gale, securing the masts, and doing every thing in his power. Il would be the greatest in- justice was I not also to speak most highly of Mr. Lo- vell, Second Lieutenant, of Mr. M'Queen, Master, who, as I have before stated, was wounded in the right arm, in nearly the middle of the action, and Mr. Wilson, Master's Mate. Indeed, the conduct of every officer and man was so good, it is impossible for me to discriminate.— I beg leave to enclose a list of the thirty- two men killed and wounded, most of Ihem mortally 1 fear. I hope, Sir, in this affair I shall appear to have done my duty, and conducted myself as I ought to have done against so superior a force, and that the honour of the British colours was well supported. I have the honour to be, & c. ( Signed) A. B. BINGHAM, Capt. The following were the instructions given to Captain Bingham, on his sailing :— " You are hereby required and directed to put to sea in his Majesty's sloop under your command, and proceed A numerous Meeting 011 the subject of Parliamentary Reform, consisting chiefly of tbe Freeholders of the Couuty of Cornwall, took place 011 Monday se'nnight, at Bodmin, who concurred With the Resolutions adopted by the late meeting of the Friends of Reform, at the Freemasons' Tavehi. The population lists now making out will exhibit a very different order of things, than 111 Queen Elizabeth's time, when on a census of the inhabitants of London being tdken, there appeared lo be only Scotchmen in all the metropolis! In coinage as in all other matters, men look prin- cipally to their own interest. The Altornies will have it that the new silver tokens should have been three and four- pences, and six and cight- pcnces. When the English militia arrive in Ireland, the whole of the cavalry, infantry, aDd artillery, of tbe King's German Legion, in that country, as well as the depot of the Duke of Brunswick's corps, will be seut to Portugal. I11 addition to the Prince Regent's superb services of plate, his Royal Brothers lent theirs for the late Fete ; as did the following noblemen:— Dukes of Norfolk, Devon hire, and Bedford; Marquisses of Stafford, Hertford, and Wellesley; Earls Spencer and Derby j Viscount Melbourne 5 Lords Dundas and Choluiond! e- Icy Sir ® G.

The following are the dimensions of one of the largest oak trees ever cut down in th s kingdom. It grew in the parish of Bassaleg, Monmouthshire, about four miles from Newport, near the Canal; was cul down last year, and purchased by Mr. T.

The following Bulletin was received at St. James's this day:— Windsor Castle, July 18, 1811. His Majesty has hail some sleep in the night, but is not better this morning " A mail from Lisbon, with letters and papers to the 1st inst. has arrived this day. The proceedings of the irregular Spanish armies, it is apprehended, are about to become extremely interesting and important, during the concentration of the French force in nearly one spot under Soult. Some of the paities, we find, have been again near enough to Madrid to afford 60 of the Spaniards, who had been enlisted by the French, an opportunity to desert to Ihefti with their arms aud horses. Some considerable reinforcements for Lord Welling- ton had arrived at Lisbon, before the 28! h ult. A part of these were probably the battalions which sailed from Jersey, with a fine w'iiid, 011 the 22d. No battle had taken place, nor had any material change of [ position taken place since Lord Wellington's dispatch of the 20th. It will be seen by this mail, that Soult trusts for part of bis supplies to Sev lle; and there is reason to hope that General Blake will cut off these. Many circumstances induce us now to believe, that Souit must either speedily cross the Guadiana, aud attack Lord Wellington in the posiiion chosen by his lordship, or fall back upon Seville. It might be wished indee i, that he would not do either of these things, especially not the last; for the progress of the Spanish parties, during his accumulation of the French armies, iiiust be highly advantageous lo tiie allied cause. But we cannot suppose he will suffer this state of tilings to continue. The Spaniards in the North threaten the city of Leon, where Bonnet has about 4000 troops. The Gallicians certainly exceed 10,000, but they are badly provided. If they could overcome Bonnet there would, be nothing to prevent them from approaching Madrid. A requisition has been presented to tiie High Sheriff of the Couuty of Essex, desiring him to call another Meeting 011 the subject of Parliamentary Reform » to which the Sheriff hits declined acceding. A man of the name of Lock, who lives at Sunning Hill, undertook for a wager of 100 guineas, to run a mile in five minutes, which he performed in four minutes and fifty seconds. In Michaelmas" Term ( 19th November), 1S01, the Judges were called upou, in Ihe case of Grtgby and Oakes, to give their opinion, whether Bank Notes were a legal tender. Lord Alvanley, Mr. Justice Heath, Mr. Justice Rooke, and Mr. Justice Chambrc, were unani- mously of opinion that they were not; aud Mr. Justice Heath is reported, by Bosanquet and Puller, to have said thus:—" Whatever inconveniencies may arise, the Courts of Law cannot apply a remedy— I think, indeed, the Legislature acted wisely, having Ihe recent example ot France before their ejes. to avoid making Bank . Note* a legal tender; for in France we know that Legislative provisions of that kind, in favour of papei- currnucy, only tended to depreciate the paper it wnj designed to protect, and were ultimately repealed, as iijurivu » in tbeir nature," J ON DON. FHIDAY, JULY 19. Dispatches have been received by Govfemmdht from Lord Wellington, dated the 27lh ult. Quiitta de St. Joao. Upon the 22d, a picqnet. of the llth light rrngoons, commanded hy Captain Lutzens, was surprised by a strong reconnoitring party of the enemy. Another of our picquets, composed of part of the second German hussars, snffeed some loss upon this occasion. The steadiness of the a'l ed cavalry arrested the advance of tbe enemy towards CampoMa or and they retired with- out having been ableto reconnoitre our position. The enemy occupy the country between Badajoz and Merida, and Ibey seem intent on collecting provisions. Don Julian Sanchez has been very actively employed iu the plains of Old Castile, and has succeeded in intercepting a very valuable convov between Salamanca and Cilidad Rodrigo. King Joseph's baggage and private pro- pel ty has fallen into the hands of M inn. Blake recrossed the Guadiana near Pecetola, and upon the 24th Was at Castilegos, marching upon 1- eville. In addition to the above intelligence, we understand that private letters have been received from the head quarters of a dute subsequent to the official dispatches, which utile that the French, after reinforcing Badajoz with 5,000 infantry and 1,000 cavalry, bad retreated to Talavcra The Corporation of London has recovered, by pro- cess in Ihe Exchequer, £ 2,510, surcharged upon it by the commissioners for the property tax. The Act provides, that the decision of Ihe commissioners upon an appeal to themselves shall be ' final; but it now ap- pears Hint relief may he hud in Ibe Exchequer, though, from the expensive and dilatory nature of the process, few individuals can avail themselves of that remedy In the Court of King's Bench, on Friday, Davenport Scdlt"., the father, was convicted of a conspiracy to defraud the Marquis of lleadfort of acceptances to the amount of £ 4000. The evidence was extremely clear ; drafts of all the fabricated letters which had been sent under various names to the Marquis, being found in iiis possession.— Baron Kierrulf was acquitted, there being no dire: l evidence against him.— Seilley's sou, anil E. Meyer, absconded without pleading. A gentleman named Moore, of Sussex, obtained a verdict in Ihe same Court, on Saturday, with £ 50 damages, against his Steward, for crim. con. with Mrs. Moore, the mother of aeven children. Thursday in the Court of Exchequer, a person named Page was convicteti in mitigated penalties to the amount of £ 400, for refusing lo allow the property- tax to be deducted from the interest of £ 300 which he had lent to Bob. Wright, a farmer in Norfolk, on mortgage.— The penalties actually incurred were £ 7,200. Cricket.— Yesterday a match for 1000 guineas be- tween eleven Greenwich Pensioners wilh oue arm each, and the s> me { number wilh one leg each, was decided at Montpellier Ground, Walworth. The one leg men won by several notches, after a contest of three days, which afforded great sport to a number of spectators. The veteran victors returned in the eieuing t i Green- wich, in a caravan covered with flags and other trophies. The match is said lo have been made by a noble Lord and an Officer in thc army. FROM THE LONDON GAZETTE. HOWN1NG- SJBBET, JULY 20. A dispatch, of which the following is an extract, has been received from Lord Viscount Wellington, dated ftninta de St. Joao, June 27. The enemy made a great teconnoissauce with a very large body of cuvalry upon Elvas aud Campo Mayor on the S22d iust. The cavalry of the Army of the South went upon Elvas from the neighbourhood of Olivenza, and thc wouds between that town and Badnjoz ; und the Army of Portugal upon Campo Mayor, from the neighbourhood of Badaioz — ' 1 he former succeeded in cutting off a picquet of the Light Dragoons which had been posted on Ihe Cava, iu front of Elvas, under Ihe command of Capt. Lutyens It is under- stood that the cause of Ibis was, that Capt. Lutyens mis- took a regiment of the Enemy's Hussars for a body of ours sent to his support. Tlie 2d Hussars also, which were 011 the Guadiaua, on the right of Elvas, suffered in their retreat, towards Elvas.— Th. enemy were kept in check iu the neighbourhood of Cnmpo > 0 Mayor by tlie Hon. Major Gen De Gray's brigade of IWitish, and Brigadier- Gen Maddeu's brigade' of Portuguese cavalry, and they retired without seeing Ihe position of our troops. Since that day, they liave made 110 movement of importance. Their Army is ulo'. g the Gnadianu between Badajozaud Merida, and their principal occupation appears to be to procure subsistence They are already beginning lo experience in some degree, theeffects of drawing together, in Esiremadura, theirwbole force— General Bonnet ha< evacuated the Asturias. Don Julian Sanchez has possession of the open country in Old Casti'le, aud has rccentlv intercepted a valuable convoy of money and provisions on ihe road from Salamanca to Ciudad Rodrigo ; and 1 learn from Valladolid, lhat a very valuable convoy, consisting of Joseph Bonaparte's baggage and pro- perty, lias been intercepted bv Mina, near Victoria — Gen. Blake crossed ll; e Guailiana ( us had been arranged) . on the 22d iust. aud 1 understand was at Caslillejos ou the 24lh. SATURDAY, JULY 20. The King, we lament lo slate, continued yesterday in a state of extreme danger. A Cabinet Council assem- bled yesterday at Carlloa- house: the subject of deli- beration is supposed to bave been the expediency of Parliament continuing lo sit during the present alarming crisis. Yesterday the following Bulletin was shewn at St. James's Palace : " Windsor Castle, July 19 — His Majesty has passed a sleepless night, and in not better this morning." This day's Bulletin cxcites some hopes. " Winasor Castle, Jvlif So — The King has bad several hours sleep in the course of Ihe night His Majesty is iu no respect worse this morning " We lament to say, that the report of his Majesty's disorder was yesterday more afflictiug than ever. We learn that the paroxysm was excessive, and dispatches were sent to town every two hours. The Prince Regent was engaged to dine this day with Mr. Perceval ; but 111 consequence of the imminent danger of his Royal Parent, he has signified his wish to decline all dinner parties. It should seem, lhat Iiis Majesty, at intervals, deeply reflects 011 his political situation, and hurb. iurs appre- hensions of the possibility of bis being withdrawn from his kingly tlig. 11 ty, and dread* the approach of the quarterly examination of the Cou icil, for the purpose of enabling them to make their report under the Regency Act. This apprehens on has, it is feared, taken deep rool, and no doubt occasions a recurrence of his disorder, which may eventually baffle all the skill of his medical attendant.".— The indisposition has had nine months duration, consequently more difficult lo be eradicated. Advices from Windsor, of this day, inform us that the members of thc Queen's Council assembled al II o'clock this morning, and examined the Physiciaus at some length, touching his Majesty's health. We under- stand from one of the Physicians, that, excepting as far as relates to Ihc inflammation of the King's throat, bis Majesty's bodily health is good; bill the induration ol the oesophagus is apprehended, if it have nut already commenced in a slight degree. His Majesty's paroxysm is said lo continue w ith equal violence. Another ma I from Lisbon has brought I- iters and papers to the 5th iust. by which a dispatch from Mr. Stuart, at Lisbon, has been received, which stales that 11 telegraphic communication from Elvas had announced the important fact of General Blake having bv a rapid inarch reached Seville, and possessed himself of lh. it city, together with Ihe immense depot of artillery and stores, which tbe enemy had collecled al that pi . ice, one of the antient fouudenes and arsenals of Spain.— The te'e; raphic communication does not mention Ihe junc- tion of Geucial Graham's force wilh that of Blake, but the former was known advancing from Ayamonte, in the direction of Seville.— On the other baud, Sonll has detached two of his divisions to the southward. They will probably arrive too late to save Seville, aud, we trust, will not be superior to the force of Gen. Elake, sh'i- jl ; they bring him to battle. 11 remains also t J be seen, whether Lord Wellington, during the absence of these divisions, will net have an opportunity tor weakening the main army of the enemy by some fur- ther manreuvres. General Blake's seizure of Seville is thought likely to have a more decisive effect npon the campaign than any victory not ending in a pursuit and dispersion of the enemy's main army" j yet we must not consider his expedition as finally successful, till we bear how he resists the attack, which will certainly lie made upon him, and what passes on the banks of the Guadiana. The F'- sgard, conveying the Portuguese Minister lo Russia, has arrived off Revel. The inhabitants are said to have expressed much joy al the sight of a British frigate in their waters. We Understand that this ship will not be permitted to enter the Neva, but that a Russian vessel will receive the Minister on board to conduct him lo the capital. A royal salute was fired 011 the approach of the Fisguaid at Revel, but it was merely a ceremony 011 the arrival of an Ambassador from a foreign Prince. A heavy firing W as heard all day yesterday from the French coast. A sloop arrived from off the French coast in the evening, ar. d stated that she had spoke some French fishermen, who informed her that Bona- parte had arrived at Boulogne. The firing therefore must have been in honour of his arrival. By an American ship which has arrived at Ports- mouth, we have just received letters from Bourdcaux to the late date'of the 3( 1 inst. communicating import- ant intelligence. It is stated, lha> Bonaparte is organiz- ing, in the interior Of Fiance, an army of no less than 8( 5,000 men, who are to co- operate with the rest of his troops in the subjugation of Ibe Peninsula, letter informs us, that a division of this armament was expected to arrive at Bourdeaux in a few days; and that, within the space of a fortnight, < tbout 5000 men had taken the direction of the Pyrennees through that place, being principally Germans." King Joseph bad ciossed the Pyrennees, and was 011 Uie road to Madrid, by the last accounts. No'withstanding, the threats of the cuch Govern- ment, and its niinion Joachim, nothing hns been attempted against Sicily at the present advanced season. We have, via Paris, obtained advices from Naples, as late as the 10th of this month, when no enterprises had been undertaken, and the enemy remained almost wholly inactive. The Locust has sent into Dover a smuggler, having a water cask on board with double heads, containing bullion and a number cf letters and papers, and the middle part containing water. It appears that six times the number of regiments of 1 Militia have volunteered more than can be allowed to go to Ireland. The interchange will immediately take j place. The Governor of the State of Massachusetts, in bis Address to I lie Senate and House of Representatives, declares, lhat the measures of Great Britain towards ] America, " for a series of years, have been marked by every species of ins. ilt, injury, and injustice."— He pro- \ ceeds to censure England, and apologise for or rather ; to vindicate the conduct of Bonaparte.— The Governor, i towards the conclusion of his speech, declares, that " of late years the dismemberment of our union has been an avowed object in the Ministerial Papers of Great Bri- tain, and to effect it a war has been urged against these Stales." The Senate and House of Representatives marked their unanimous approbation of this philippic against England, by ordering 5000 copies of Ihe Go- vernor's spcech to be printed. Al a public dinner Ihe Lieutenant- Governor of Massachusetts gave the follow- j ing toast:— Free commerce with the consent of j foreign Italians— if not, at the cannon's mouth .'"— To hear these Americans talk, we would suppose they j were a great naval power, j There are not less than 59ti causes in the London j paper for the present sittings in the King's Bench, the ma jority of which are special juries. There has been a hearing before the Justiciary Court in Scotland, of Ihe mysterious business mentioned in our last paper, of » grout political .- liaraotor haying brought all action to recover the sum of £ 5000 lhat he had paid in part of a bond of £ 20,000, to be applied to- the people. nd.- Tbat any statute having for its object the prevention of t'. ie paper currency from being exhausted, would occasion tlie money of the realm to disappear. The remaining Resolutions were equally hostile to tlie bill; and after 1 he. previous question had been moved to each? they were negatived without a division. fftoStBCript. LONDON, Monday Night, July 22, 1811. A mail is arrived from Lisbon, brought to Falmouth by the Darlington packet.— Au express has reached lown with dispatches for Government, together with letters and papers for the Post Office. The contents of the Lisbon papers to the Sth inst, the period at which the packet sailed, are not so important as there was reason to expect, cpn- iidcring the pie- sent critical situa lion of affairs in the . Peninsula. Reinforcements con- tinued to arrive, out almost daily. Amongst the last arrivals were the 77th ard 32d regiments, beside some others which landed the Friday previous to the depar- ture of the Darlington.— The armies, according to the papers, have not altered their positions: there had not been even any skirmishing ; and not Ihe least indication had thc enemy shewn to advance, but 011 the contrary they evinced a disposition to fall back. A letter frOm Lisbon, dated the 7th itisl. states that nothing further bad been heard of the detachments from Soult, nor from Blake, and therefore it is con- cluded that the telegraphic message from Elvas respecting the success Of the latter at Seville was still believed. Gijon having: been abandoned by the enemy, the A second j ships of that port have embraced the earliest opportu- nity to sail with cargoes j one arrived in a British port brings advices from thence to Ihe 13th inst. General Bonnet, with abouLSOOO men, according to letters to that date, had continued in Leon, but 011 the very day the ship sailed intelligence arrived lhat he evacuated that province, in consequence of Soltocildes b- ing ou his march against him; Gotier is stated to be al St. Viucenti with 2000 men, but on every side where the enemy appeared, he had double the force opposed to him. The following Officers have arrived at Seville,— They were taken at Albuera on the 16th ult: 48lh Regiment Major Brooke and Captain Thomas A1I- nian, severely wounded; Captain Campbell, slightly; Lieutenants Ellwood, Marshall, Sash, and Ensign Gilbert, all severely wounded ; Capt, Phillip, 4th Dragoons, slightly wOunded, now quite well. Volunteer Fitzgibbon, of tbe Buffs, not wounded. To- day accounts were received in town from Char- leston to the S3d ult. at which time the arrival of neither Mr, Pinckney or Mr. Foster had been au- i uouueed ; but it is stated as a fact that Mr. Macon, son of tiie active member of Congress of that name, had beeu selected by the President lo proceed to England ou a particular mission, which was hoped by the merchants to1 relate to the affair of tbe President frigate with the Little Belt, and that in consequence a rupture between Great Britain and America would possibly be prevented* It is not true, as all tba Papers have asserted, that Sir Joseph York is gone to the coast of America. His destination is a very different oue. The order issued by the Commander- in- Chief, 011 the 5th inst. relative to Catholic Soldiers, is 111 tbese terms : —" In consequence of the operations of the Act for allowing the mutual interchange of the British and Irish Militias, his Hoyal Highness this Commander- in- Chief is pleased to dircal, that the Commanding Officers of regin ents shall be particularly attentive, that no soldier, professing the Ronia. 1 Catholic religion, shall be subject to any punishment For not attending the divine worship of the Church of England ; and that every such soldier shall be at full liberty to attend the worship of Almighty God according to the forms prescribed by his religion, when military duty does not interfere, The King.— The two last Bulletins from Windsor inform us that bis Majesty has at length enjoyed some hours of sleep, and though this refreshment wasobtainr- d by the means of opiates, it has had the effect of lower- few days, when it will be distributed to the different 8< mk3 here. We hope the hoarders of the old silver coin will now be induced to bring it into circulation, as it w ill by this measure be considerably reduced in value. Shropshire General Agricultural Society.— On Fri- day last, the members of ibis interesting Institution held their first meeting for the distribution of Premiums ottered by the Society, and it was most numerously and respectably attended. Lord Bradford ( lire President), William Childe, Esq.

July 22.— The King has had several hours sleep in the course of the night. His Majesty is in Ihc same siate this morning as he was yesterday." A letter from Windsor, dated yesterday, says, 14 It would afford us the most heart- felt gratification, if we could announce any favourable change iu his Majesty's most afflicting ma| ad\— it is true, that lie had aboul four hours sleep in the course of the lasl night, but the symp- toms to day are in uo material degree abated— Ihe paroxysms are less violent, but a prevalent restlessness exists, aud frequent v mule rings mid aberrations are the concomitants, the natural etl'ects of w hich must be extremely injurious to tbe constitution, and have a serious tendency to weaken the frame al liis Majesty's advanced period oi'life. The reports of this evening do liot afford any flattering ex- pectation of his Majesty's amendment."

Buriletl, and Sir S Rumilly; and supported by Mr. Patti- son, Mr. Rose, Mr Willici force, Mr. Taylor, M Lord Castlercagh, and Mr. Sheridan. The latter gentleman observed, that for his pari lie was unxious before the Bank was called upon for cash payments, to understand I hat it was not the same thing as to call upon the House to give up the contest in which it w as engaged. Nothing could be more unjust than while they restricted the Bank from cash payments, to leave the tenant at the mercy of the land- holder. The country hanks, he concluded, would certainly be ruined, and he left it to themselves to conceive in what manner that might affect Ihe Commercial interests of itie country. He ridiculed the prophecies of barkruplcy, & c. appealing tothe 6tale 01'( he country, as a proof that the enormous income with which she supplied the Government were not wrung from het" distresses, lie held it to be ex- traordinary, that upon either side of such a question as this, there should be such a conviction that the other side was wrong, as to encourage any ferocious party spirit The question did not admit of such peremptory decision. He did not think lie should even agree lo make Bauk Notes a legal tender, but hoped that tbey would be able to come back to tlie old system, without resorting tosuch astep. To him it w as no mortifying it flection, that the gold w hich w as essential to the existence of other couutries should be so easily dispensed with in this. It was a proof of our ciedit antl resources, and whatever disadvantage might be sup- posed to follow it, he would ask What other nation could do thc same. He did not wish to risk the advantages we possessed, or do any thing rashly or prematurely — On the division there appeared for thc thiid reading ys, against il 20, majority 7.-,. Mr. BROUGHAM, before the passing of the bill, moved some resolutions bv way of protest against it, lo the follow ing purport*, That by the laws and constitution of the realm, the right of a man lo sell or dispose of his properly was admitted, and that evcy man who has a Bauk note lias no unquestionable right to sell, exchange, or give it away for what be pleases. Afier this Resolution bad been put, Ihe CHANCELLOR of tbe EXCHEQUER moved the previous question, which was carried. Mr II it-> u Git a 11 then moved his second Resolution, ! namely: I It il to restrain a man from giving away, or ollicr- 1 w ise diHiit sing of his llank notes, would be contrary to tlie principles of Ihc constitute. 11, and Ihe uua! ici: able* rigtvts of Hi inches and Chapels yesterday.

NATURAL PHILOSOPHY.— We are much gratified by the simple illustration of Natural Laws, which Mr. Webster's Lectures afford u. t Shut out from these enquiries, mankind not only los;^ the pleasures, hut likewise the advantages of Creation ; for a knowledge of those law s of nature net only serves to diminish our temporal wauts, but likewise to in- crease ourviews of the Creator — The peculiar exertions of Mr. W. aided hy 1, is continued habits in his department, are well calculated both to entertain and instruct. His very extensive apparatus also affords innumerable experiments iu demonstrating the interesting subjects which lie intro- duces.— His auditors are most respectable, though not very numerous ; we are rather surprised lhat, in a populous town and neighbourhood like this, there should not be more avi- dity ft » - rational pleasure and improvement.

H. Advantages of Irrigation.— The irrigations of the Nile, of Spain, and of France, says Mr. Tatham, in his ingenious work on national irrigation, aftorded many examples which dese ve the notice of the nation and the practical firmer'; while the English counties, on the olher hand, remunerate lessons to those who have taught them, thev are not without some peculiar point of instruction.— Lincolnshire affords examples for low and sunken grounds ; GloCeWer and Wiltshire a com- plete system for level meadows ill ordinary ; Cheshire a singular method of procrastinating water on hilly lands; and Devonshire combines the watering of meadows v ith the means of conveying its produce. When Ihc expence is moderate and the meadow suc- ceeds well, a single year's crop will entirely cover the outlay; and even when malters are less fashionable, they may generally be liquidated in the course of two or three vears at most. ._ . , There is an increase of winter food whfcb the farmers may either convert into money, or by wintering a greal number of cattle afford an annual extra supply of manure tor enriching other fields, and the manure again obtained from lhat produce becomes an addi- tional some of national wealth. An early growth of meadow grass enables the farmer v ho has a breeding stock to furnish abundance of food for the lambs and weak ewes ' luring the spring where no turnips are raised, or after Ihey are eaten before the natural grass rises; n advantage which Ihe sheep farmer can only appreciate. The forwardness of grass from watered meadows is such, lhat the feed from March to May is w orth two guineas per acre ; and in June an acre w ill yield two tons of hay, which may be moderately valued nt five guineas— and whether the summer pro « e wet or dry, another guinea is generally obtained for the after- math. At the above moderate calculi lion an acre of well watered meadow will produce eight guineas per annum; and in dry seasons such farmers as water their meadows have an opportunity of selling their hay almost al any price lo their neighbours. Another important advantage attending these mea- do' s is, lhat the store farmer can thereby raise abundance of food for his numerous flocks against the emergency of winter storms, by which the increased expence and risk of snow retreats are completely obviated. The system of watering meadows is nol onlv of advantage to the sheep farmer in supplying him villi early and abundant pasturage for his stock, bill is also highly beneficial lo the dairy- man, inasmuch as it enables him to begin the making of cheese al least a month earlier than bis neighbours, who have not the same advantage. Lastly, land subjected to Ibis ma- nagement, w hatever be the nature or quality of the soil, is raised to double or treble its former value, requires no dung, and is continually improving in quality. Every large and copious stream abounds in manure of the most fertilizing quality, capable of enriching land to any degree, whatever be the nature of tlie soil or subsoil, and an entirely new soil is in a few years superinduced 011 the primitive surface. By the irrigation of Aberdeenshire and various other districts in Scotland, it bath also been demonstrated, that even the barren heath may be converted into grass by the simple process of irrigation. " I am confident," says Mr. Wright, " that there are in each county in England anil Wales ( he might have added Scotland and Ireland), 2000 acres, upon an average, which might be thus treated, and every acre increased at least one pound ill annual value." The general adoption, there- 1 fore, ofa svstem of irrigation throughout the United Kingdom, is capable of being made a national advan- tage of at least half a million per annum, besides the great improvement of other land arising from the produce of the meadows, and the employment of the industrious poor. Land owners aud agricultural societies should oiler premiums for the greatest produce lhat can be obtained from a given quantity of water meadow, and smaller premiums to Ihe manager or drainer. This would excite emulation, create a spirit of industry, and attract the attention ot the farmer to a crop which is more al his command, and less subject to blight, drought, or other casualties, than any other crop which he cultivates j this would be a fair subject of com- petition in the skill of the managers; and the premiums should be determined, not by the produce of a single crop, but by Ihe aggregate produce of the whole year, taken iu spring feed, hay, and autumn pasture. ' 1 lie numerous lakes which exist in the Principality might, at a trifling expcnce, be drawn oil', and applied for the same beneficial nodose ; by which the rugged fells and mountains might be converted into a beautiful Teen, the barren heath into fine sweet pasture, and the rocky feu into a fertile field, to the ultimate amelio- ration of the fleece, and tbe increased wealth and prosperity of the nation at large. This is the dictate of nature herself, if we would condescend to listen to ber voice, or open our eyes to view her operations. B » erv little sttcam that rushes from the mountains wlterc it occasionally overflows its banks, has tliere meliorated the herbage, while all around is a dismal barren waste. Every where she points out. this method of improving Ihe soil, but we have nol yet learned to obey her voice, or to copy the example which she daily'sets before us. K. S. Dublin, July 10 — The Rev. Matthew Crowley, who has just conformed to tbe Protestant Religion, was professor of Ihe Sacred Scriptures in the ( ollege of Maynooth. This gentleman's conversion ( if we are rightly informed) was principally occasioned by Ihe following circumstance s— He had been for some time preparing himself to give his class in the College a series of Lectures upon " the Protestant Heresy"' as it is theologicall) termed 111 the Roman Catholic Ecclesi- astical Seminaries, and lor lliis purpose had diligently studied all the h ading points of controversy between the Protestant and the Roman t alliolic religions, and most caref. Ily examined that fountain of all truth the Holy Scriptures: anil critically, and with a mind bent upon impartial investigation, had pef- used Dr. Stackhouse's invaluable History of the Bible, and the late Bishop Porteus's Lectures ou the Gospels. The result has been, his renouncing the teueuts of that religion in 1 2 dr. dr. dr. . aud which he was brought up, and embracing the doctrines and opinons of the Reformed Church. His conversion has, we understand, produced a very strong sensation in the College of Maynooth, and a great number of the students have manifested an inclination to follow his example. Mr. Crowley is about 38 years of age, and, as we are informed, is a gentleman of the most singular modesty, of spotless reputation, aud of the most pro- found learning. FICTITIOUS NOTES.— So great is the similarity ofthe mock notes, uttered from the Fleet Prison, London, in imitation Of lliosa of the Bank of England, that one of them was actually paid as a five hundred pound note, along with others, at an eminent bankers in the city, by a merchant of respectability. It reads Bank in England j instead of— of England ; and is so well engraved, that a stranger could not tell the difference without he readu it.

DAI- RYMPLE.— This was a suit at the instance of Mrs. Dalrymple, formerly Miss Gordon, for a resti- tution of conjugal rights, as the wife, by the law of Scotland, of Captain John William Henry Dalrymple, a son of the late General Dalrymple. It appeared that Capt. D. accompanying his regiment to Edinburgh, was there first introduced to Miss Gor- don; they conceived a mutual regard for each other, which ended in a matrimonial contract. Family cir- cumstances, however, rendering it necessary, as he persuaded her, that the knowledge of the marriage should be concealed during the life time of his father, Miss Gordon yielded to his injunctions of secrecy, and they accordingly exchanged mutual written promises to this purport t " I do solemnly promise, as soon as it is TTi my power-, to marry you, and itever any other per- son." Upon the faith of these promises, they conducted themselves towards each other as man and wife, and at a subsequent period exchanged a farther acknowledg- ments of the relation in which they stood to each other, to this purport: " I heieby acknowledge John William Henry Dalrymple to be my lawful husband ;" and " 1 hereby acknowledge Johanna Gordon to be my lawful wife ;" and signed respectively. Upon Captain Dal- rymple's departure with his regiment from Scotland, he obtained a written promise of secrecy from Miss Gordon, in which she declares, " that nothing but the strongest necessity, a necessity which circumstances alone could justify, should ever force her to declare her marriage with him." He continued earnest in his in- junctions to her 011 this head till almost the very moment of his departure from England ; ConSti'h'tly addressing her by letter from Portsmouth, and even when abroad, pointing out the agency of Sir Rupert George, as the channel of tlieir communication. Some time after- wards the correspondence was discontinued on his part, and Miss Gordon in consequence vrroto to fiis father to ascertain his address. Upon being apprised of this, he directed a confidential friend, Mr. Hawkins, of Brighton^ to intercept her letters to bis father ; but this gentleman finding considerable difficulty in such a service, wrote to her himself to discontinue the correspondence ; and General Dalrymple dying about this time, Miss Gordon considering herself released from her promise of secrecy, made a frank avowal to Mr. Hawkins of the nature of her situation with Captain Dalrymple. He shortly afterwards returned very unexpectedly from Malta; and in a conversation with Mr. Hawkins, hinted at his determination of abandoning his connection wilh Miss Gordon. This gentleman used every argu- ment to dissuade him from such a purpose, and, as he had reason from his conduct, to think with success ; but in a day or two afterwards he was surprised to hear of Capt. D.' s marriage wilh Miss Manners, a sister of the Duchess of St. Albans. This coming to the knowledge of Miss Gordon, she in justice to her own rights com- menced the present suit. The validity of a marriage of this description I according to the law of Scotland, being the principal question in the case, the opinions and exposition of J that law, by its most eminent professors of the present day, formed the principal part of the evidence, accom- panied by the production of many of the letters that passed in the course of the transaction. Sir William Scott, iu a learned and elaborate, yet perspicuous speech, recapitulated the evidence, aud delivered the judgment of the Court. The learned Judge look a view of the opinions of the Scotch Pro- fessors, fiom which he inferred that as most of them agreed in points conformable to the old Canon Law, that law must be the basis of the Scotch Law, and con- sent, therefore, was the real marriage of Scotland. He then referred to the text authorities, and thence to tbe decisions of the Scotch Courts confirmatory of that doctrine; and, applying to the circumstances of the present case, was clearly of opinion that Ihc marriage was a valid one, and that the Lady had used no un- necessary delay in claiming her remedy. He pronounced, therefore, that her claim to conjugal rights was a just one, and that Mr. Dalryinple was houud lo receive and treat her accordingly. HOUSE OF LORDS, TUESDAY, JULY 16. The order of the day having been read, for a motion for printing certain Resolutions, declaring the nccessi'y for a new circulating medium, by Bank- book entries,— Earl STANHOPE said, lie should be trespassing on their lordships patience, as well as judgment, if he were to inform them that this was a subject of immense importance. Unless tbe measure he pro- posed be adopted, tbe taxes could not be paid, nor tbe public creditor receive his dividend; neither would Government be able to get their contracts finished ; nur would it be possible 10 pay either the army or navy, for gold coold not be bad. It was n subject which comprehended all coutiacts made throughout Ihe kingdom, between rich and poor, high and low. He was alluding to Ihe necessity for au invariable cir- culating medium. It would be proper to consider what would be tbe stale ot the law between landloid and tenant alter the passing of the bill, which had lately passed through ' heir lordships House. It would certainly prevent, any noble lord lioin saying to his tenant, "| You owe me ,£ 40 ; bui il you pay me in paper, I will not take less than £ 50. Nor could he distress him as before for his rent, on his offering llie £ 40 ; but tbe law respecting actions for debt, covenant, and ejectment, temained as befoie. What a horrid situation then things would be lelt in, if Ihe bill passed as it is? He had belore, and he would then compare it to a humpy's coat. Could any thing be more unjust than to make a Banker pay in gold, when he cannot gel it ? antl is not it just as unlair to permit ihe landlord to oblige the tenant 10 do so? The tenant says to the landloid, " My lord, the law does not allow me to pay 111 gold; but, besides, I cannot get it for my life."—" You must then turu oul," says the lord. Was thai Ihe justice ofthe boasted law of England ?—" Have 1," says the tenant, " ever been behind with my teiit? No," says the lord, " I cannot say you ever have."—" Have I not ex- pended targe sums in improving lhat pan uf your estate which I occupy?— Huve I not spent the best years of my life 011 your estate?—" All that is very true, but you must tarn out," and then, whetting his knife, like Shylock, be cries, " I will have my bond; I'll have mv pound of lle- h ; I'll hear no talking, I will have my bond !''— 11 Take then your pound ot flesh," sa'y the tenant; " since nothing else will content yon. but beware yod spill no drop of Christian blood ?" Was then- no inconvenience in the action of ejectment being allowed 10 remain; or even an injunction in Chancery ? They now sa « their way cleat ly out of these difficulties, and they woold be forced to get out of them, thanks to the pertinacity of some of his friends on the other side of the House?— Suppose the landlord insist!, 011 his rent in gold, the tenant goes to market and sells his malt to a brewer— to brewer Whitbread ; why not? He tells him he has some capital malt, but he must be paid in gold. After some difficulty, it is done; and Whitbread goes to the publicans whom he supplies with beer, and tells them he is obliged to alter his plan— he must now be paid in gold. The publican at first refuses, and tells him, " I'll put up Barclay and Perkins' entire, or Calvert's entire, any body's entire, except your's." He at last, however, is obliged to demand gold Of his chalk customers, when they pay their scores, even if it be but for Is ; and soon it goes through " the baker, the butcher, ( kc. & c. until it affects every neces- sary of liie, and raises the pricesof them. All this, he said, was owing to the landlord u ho demanded the gold. He wished that those who opposed his plan would ask the people of Westminster, in Palace- yard, and see if there would be two opinions on it. He did not think that Ireland should be sepa- rated from England by the bill. He had seen a protest against the plan by those who want to get into power themselves— who think gold would be showered round their blessed Ad- ministration. But why was that a more likely thing than that it could be got from abroad without gold's worth in re- turn ? The law making gold the established circulating me- dium he denounced as one fit for Hottentots; a law of antiquity, bordering on barbarism, and first established when nations were beginning to become civilized. Suppose the balance of trade not against this, nor gold at any advanced ptie'e, an invasion takes place, and the gold vanishes; where then is your circulating medium?— it is hoarded up. If a man wanted to buy an estate in Yorkshire at 100,000; his chaise- springs would be broken i ti a crack vvitb lhat weight. He must get one of tbe broad- wheeled Canterbury hop- waggons, with a troop of horse to escort it down into York- shire. Now his plan was the simplest in the world ; there was no danger of loss 011 tbe highway, the burning of houses, or housebreaking. He was against the paper of the Bank being made a legal tender, because there never were notes more easily forged than the present. That could only be prevented by a plate, which should throw off 100,000 al once ; and he was happy to say that, after nine years, he had accomplished that. But book- entriei could not be fotged ; the spreading of branches of the Bank would give facility to Ihe detection of foi god notes. When, therefore, it would not do to make gold a legal tender when it cannot be got; when it would do to make Bank . notes, which may be easily forged, they could only resort to the safe and simple plan which he had proposed. He therelore moved, that ihe resolutions be piinted, and laid on the table lilt next. « ession.— The Eari of LIVERPOOL thought it always was most proper to legislate on known facts ; now the whole agricultural and commercial affairs of the country hail flourished under the system which was adnpted in 1797. He had no objection to the motion for printing these resolutions, as ihey were not proposed to be further discussed till r ext session ; but t- hat was not lo be construed into a disposition on his part, to give them any approbation,— The Earl of LAUDERDALE was glad to find this ne. v bantling of the noble Earl's had not been quite so well received as the last, by the nnrsts to whose care he had assigned it. He deprecated the whole of Lord Stanhope's speech ns most dangerous ; and declared it to he his opinion, that this country never could be secure until she returned to the same mode of payments in cash 011 demand, as before 1797.— Earls STANHOPE and LAUDEBDALE mutnaHy explained, when the the question was put, and carried without a division. Adjourned till Thuisday. HOUSE OF COMMONS, MONDAY, JULY 15. MILITIA- MENS' FAMILIES. Mr. Secretary RYDER obtained leave to bring in a bill to remove certain doubts that existed relative to making pro* vi- ions for the families of those militiamen who should go to England or Ireland from either country, in consequence of Militia Interchange bills. Heptoposed that it should be read through its stages in a short time, in order to be passed into a taw this session. BANK- NOTE! AND COLD. Mr. PERCEVAL moved the order of the day for the second reading of the Bank note bill.— Mr. EDEN opposed it, as a measure wholly inadequate to the object it had in view. He contended, that no inconvenience could have arisen from the act of Lord King; for if his tenants tost money by paying rente in gold they would be indemnified when they carried their produce to market.— Mr. HIRBERT considered this measure as a phenomenon in politics; because it was a compulsory law, which was likely to bring about the ruin of the country. The noble lord, whose conduct gave rise to this bill, bad in his opinion, acted in a patriotic manner. The noble lord had not created two prices, but only wanted to fix the prices as he saw them really existing. It had been, at tbe origin of ihe Bank restrictions, foretold that these two prices would prevail. They now existed, and they were the necessary consequences of excessive issue of paper by the Bank. By the measure now proposed, it would he impossi- ble to keep tbe paper up to the standard of gold. As well might gentlemen try, by the sound of their voice, to stop a stone falling by the power of gravitation to the earth. The use of gold might be embarrassed in all transactions, and it would then go into the hands of the Jews and the smugglers ; but it would be impossible to prevent a difference in ihe prices of property, when paid for iu paper anil gold.— Mr. CALCRAFT was most, clearly of opinion, that tbis measure was necessary; arid lie bad, several weeks back, felt that some legislative piovisiou on this subject must be adopted before the conclu- sion of the se-. don. Was this measure doing any thing more than fixing the rates of circulation as they now existed ? For in all the common tiansactions of life, if a man took a guinea to purchase any article, he got no moie than 21s. for ii; and lie should be glad, at any time, to receive a ,£ 1 note from any man who owed him 20s. Increase of price in the neces- saries of life arose from various causes; from luxury, from incieased population, and taxes; but it could not be said to have arisen solely fiom Bank- notes. He did nol contend, that this was Ihe best possible state of the circulation. But it was the only circulation we could now resoi t to. Where was gold to be got ? Could we purchase gold for Bank- notes? No— nor could we find any practicable mode of drawing gold inio the country. We must therefore, be content with that circulation which had answered all the purposes of the couti- t y for 14 yeais. After tbe notice given by Lord King to bis tenants, it was necessary to protect the tenantry of the coun- try, and to provide that their goods should not lie seized aud put under the hammer— Mr. BROUGHAM said, this was a novel principle ol legislation, which arose out of the wildest sprit of speculation that ever existed in France; and lii^ wished to take the first opportunity to enter his feeble protest against such an innovation. He believed it was a mere pre- tence, tu say the bill aiose from Loid King's notice to his tenantry. He applauded the conduct of Lord King and offered him all the tribute ot respect due to bis character aud talents. But his case must be left entirely out of Ibis ques- tion, He opposed this measure on the ground of the ter- rible consequences that must arise from it. This bill would be ulteilv inefficacious, aud recourse must be. had to another b. ll, for making Bank notes a legal tender ; and if the notes were made a legal tender, all the sellers of commodities would raise the prices of their articles. ' I bey would find it neces- sary to make up for the loss which the legal tender created. Theiefore, the bill would produce no good ellect. If any pre- tended relief then was to be given, the House must go further; a clause must be enacted to regulate future contracts; but even these would be nugatory, lor men would get rid of con. tiacts altogether, landlords would make 110 leases at all, and all tenancy by lea- e would be destroyed. He knew of 110 substitute tor this measure but one, and that was, the sub- stitution of two prices, one for gold, and another for paper, the prices to be left to their own level He know of no other cure but this. Tnts double price would always be the test, aud the pulse, for estimating tbe amount and value ol paper circulation; and there ivould be little danger of Ihe evil pro- ceeding ; for by this test the Bank would be obliged to draw in its issue; and the evil of enormous circulation would be done away. The Parliament then might repeal the Bank Restriction, and put it in the power of the liaek to comply wilh their honest feelings by discharging their debts. There was another consideration;— he would have all the overplus Bank Siork profits— those unfair gains of ibe Bank— placed in a separate fund; with a provision, that as soon as the Bank resumed its cash payments this fund should be given to the Bank as a bonus.— I bis would be, if not a remedy, an important palliative to the existing evil.— Mr. MILNE thought the example of Lo. d King mischievous, and, therefore, he trusted it would never be loll wed. At tne time the Report of the Bullion Committee was made, it was supposed an otlence at law to give more than a pound note aud a shilling lor a guinea. It had since been determined nut to be an offence. He appioved ot this bill, therefore, because it went to make it so; it was not, he understood, the inten- tion ot any person to propose making the Bank- note a legal tender, unless tbe general adoption of the pernicious example « et by the noble lord, should render such a step necessary. A Bank- note was a legal tender for taxes. It was never the mention of Mr. Pitt to de'precia'e the revenue ; and how, he would ask. had the noble lord been paying the duties for his servants, his carriages, his horses, and his windows? flow had he been paving for his tea, his salt, his soap, and Ivs candles Hie noble lord now wanted to obtain over the revenue ' hat advan'age which lie complained li s tenants had heieto- fore over him With respect to the present bill, the hon. gentleman said, he tmbtv approved of it so far as it went, and therefore it should have his support. Sir T. ' I URTOV thought the noble Lord should have been left alone, and the Legislature should not have interfered with his financial reverie?. Had he been left alone, be would soon have desisted, or be would have lost his tenants ; and the noble Lord could no more do without tenants than they could do without landlords, and he would soon have been brought to a sense of his own imprudence.— Mr. ROSE said, it would be unnecessary for him to follow the lion. Baronet through bis arguments, as he appeared to be favourable to the object of the bill, if he could have persuaded himself tbat the example of the noble Lord would have been " follow ed. Could that be doubted, after what had been said in different places, and in the public prints ? Of the noble Lord's motives no doubt could be entertained; but others might have followed his ex- ample from less honourable motives. An hon. gentleman ( Mr. Brougham) had urged the resuming of cash payments, and contended, that gold, for that purpose, might be obtained from America ; he would ask tbat learned gentleman how that gold was to be obtained ? What were we to give in ex- change ? Spanish and Portuguese America weie already glulted with our commodities; anil even if we could obtain 50 tons of gold, and coin it, while gold is at tbe price it is at present io the market (' 21s. per ounce above the mint price), in a very short time there would not be a guinea in circula- tion. With respect to the quantity of Bank- pa^ er in circu- lation being abundant, in 1798, we hail 30 millions of g" ld and 10 millions of paper in circulation ; aud now, with an ex- penditure and revenue neaily trebled, we bad a paper circu- lation of 23,1) 00,0000/.; and of gold, perhaps, 5,000,000/ — To obtain gold from America, under present circumstances, was impossible; and till gold could be obtained, the Interest of the country required, that the Bank Restriction should be continued— Lord FOLKESTONE perfectly agieed with the right hon. genileman just sat down, that in the present stale of things, whatever quantity of gold might be Coined, yet none of it would continue in circulation; it would either be hoarded or melted down. He entered at considerable length into a justification of Lord King, and contended, lhat neither in law or equity was the noble Lord deserving the censure which nad been cast upon him.— Lord CASTLEREACH con- tended that a new practical difficulty would arise if the system adopted by Lord King was continued and increased, for he could not conceive that any Sheriff would feel himself justi- fied in distraining tor rent after Bank- notes had been ten dered ; or ut least that he would say that gold should be the only payment. In what a situation they would be placed were this svstem acted up to by many ! The Legislature hail passed a law to prohibit payments in cash being made to ihe public creditor, the taxes too weie received in paper. Would it not be most unjust to compel any man to pay in Bank notes at a different scale from that in which they are paid to the public creditor ? Without the Bank restrictions, the Bank of England must have stopped altogether, and of Course all the country banks also ; in consequence of which we should have been in the same state as Fiance now is ; lor that which is called the Bank of Paris does not deserve the name of one. The duty of Parliament was to protect the tenant, and not to leave him to the mercy of any landlord whatever; nor did he think there was tbe smallest shadow of justice in the pro- ceedings adopted by Lord King. If IH6y examined the prin- ciple of the bill, it would be foond to be worib nothing, unless followed np.— Mr. H. THORNTON thought there should be no restrictions in the Bunk issues. He was also certain that no just comparison could be established between our paper cur- rency of the Bank of England and that of Fiance, to which it bad been so often in the course of that debate compared. — Mr. PERCEVAL entered into a wide range of argument in support of ihe bill. The decision of the House must not de- pend on the law as laid down by Lord King, nor on Lord King's construction of the law ; but 011 the legal construction which others might put 011 the law.— Mr. TIERNSY was of opinion tbat the immediate effect of the bill must be the death of the little credit that was still left to Bank notes. In lact, they were to be Bank- notes 110 longer. They were now to he Parliament notes, Government notes, any thing but what they once were, and ivhat they always ought to be. The House then divided— For the second reading, 133; against it 35— Majority 98. Lord FOLKESTONE then moved, that the bill be committed tbis day se'nnight, This was negatived without a division ; and the Committee was otdered for to- day.— Adjourned at a quartet past three o'clock. TUESDAY, JULY 16. The SPEAKER tool; the Chair at four o'clock, when, there being only 38 members present, an adjournment took place till to- morrow. HOUSE OF COMMONS- WEDNESDAY, JULY 17. Lord COCHRANE, after several observations 011 the abuses in the foreign Courts of Admiralty, moved for the corre- spondence betwixt the Treasurer of the Navy and Messrs. Coke and Holford, relative to a chaige of <£ 462. for an account of the fees of Ihe Proctor's Clerk, and the fees upon taxation ; for an account of Ihe two first and two last causes in each month of the year; and after some dis- cussion tiie question was carried. On the motion of Mr. CALCRAFT, it was ordered, that theie be laid befoie the House an account of the. Bank Notes io circulation, 011 Saturday, the 6th, and on Saturday, the 13th instant, under Five Pounds. Mr. CREEVEY brought foiwaid his motion for excluding the Bank Directors from voting 011 the question ol Lord Stanhope's hill; which was opposed by Mr. Manning anil others, The SPEAKER, on this occasion, thought it 10 be hisduly to express his opinion respecting ihe rule of the House in t ie case of questions like the present occurring. The question, lie stated, was of two kinds, of law and of fact ; respecting the first, he took it that tbe law or usage of ihe House was perfectly clear; it had been laid down 200 years ago, that interest did dis- qualify tro. il voting. It was necessary that this interest should be pecuniary, aud separately belonging, not belonging tothe geueral body of the King's subjects, or State policy. So it was that on a canal, when a Member had put down iiis name for a sum of money, the House would not receive his vote.— tt was equally clear that on auv question of internal taxation, or general policy, whatever pecuniary interest an individual may have, it would not disqualify his vote. How far the present subject fell within this rule, it was lelt with the House to decide ; it was not for him to attempt to sway their de- cision by giving his own opinion.— The question was then put, and the motion was negatived without a division. The CHANCELLOR ot the EXCHEOUER moved the order of the day, for the House to resolve itself inio a Committee on the Gold Coin Bill.— Mr. BANKS adverted to the Bank tokens ot three shillings which bad been lately issued. In the state of the Arts, the interest and character of the Country were con- cerned ; the wretched manner in which this new coin was executed, was a disgrace to the Arts, and to those who pre- sided iu the Mint. Mr BROUGH AM wished to know the value of these lukens iu the lawful money of the Realm; and how much it was de- based in weight by alloy ?— Mr. MANNING, in answer, stated, tbat the three- shilling tokens contained nine penny weights and eleven giains of silver, which, according to tbe presenl price of silver at 5s. lid. peroz. made them 2.-. 9£ d. each.— It had been said, and upon very high authority, in another plate, thai the Bank made a considerable profit by these issues of Bank tokens. With respect 10 the dollars wnich had been first issued in 1804, he bad to state, that four millions of dollars had since lhat period been issued at 5s. each. Sup- posing, then, that one- fourth of them had been melted down, there remained 3,000,000 out in circulation when the Bank raised the price of the dollar to 5s. 6d.; 90 that instead of a profit, the Bank had sustained a considerable loss upon the issue of dollars. The loss upon the whole amounted to £ 15,000; the loss actually sustained up to the present moment was , f40,00u. for the convenience of the public.— The price of siher had been so high tor the last five years, ihat it was impossible for his Majesty's Ministers to issue le- gal standard coin, und consequently il became necessary for ihe Bank to le.- oit to measures to supply the circulation.— This was a situation from which they would feel satisfaction m being relieved. As to the calculations made by an lion 3nd learned gentleman respecting the amount ol silver change required daily by the Bankers ot Loudon, be should only say, that the conduct ot the Bank had been most liberal, in taking measures to atiord a speedy aud adequate supply of silver tu the Bankers, and to the manufactures, by whom it was moat urgently wanted. The practice of the Bank was to issue change to the 70 Bankers of London weekly, in sums of one, two, three, four or five hundred pounds to each. So far from issuing a debased coin, as stated by the hon. and learned gen tleman, the Bank Directors felt a most anxious wish to con- form to the circumstances of the times, and to relieve the embarrassment of the public derived from the * c « wcity of change.—- Mr, Rrtss stated, on tbe part of tbe Bank, tbat far from their having any profit by this new com, the v had lent themselves to the public at a considerable loss. He was convinced that, in the present state of things, if we even could sret gold and silver, it would not be current for a single day. The Committee of the Privy Council for coins had n « ked se- veral Bankers, whether they thought the three shilling:* coin would be useful ? All agreed th it it would.— Mr, P. Moons protested strongly against the bill. Af? er a few words from Mr. Vansittart, Mr Brougham, an< l Lord Folkstone, the House divided— For the Committee 75— Against it, 11— Majority ( 54, • The House in a Committee, the CHANCELLOR of the EX- CHEQUER proposed, " That every person who might offend against tbe ' Bill, should be deemed guilty of a midemeanor.'' With respect to Scotland, he had an additional clause to pro- pose, which provided, " that every person ; com mitt in g the same offence in Scotland, shall be punished by fine or im- prisonmnent, or by such one or other of the said puoishments as the Judges there may think fit to direct."— Agreed to y as were also the other clauses. The following is the substance of Lord Stanhope's Resolutions:— l? t, That an internal circulating medium which shall be a legal measure of value, is essentially necessary. 2dly, That it is highly expedient that such medium should be steady and invariable. 3dly, That two or more circulating mediums which may- vary in their relative value cannot form the requisite medium. 4- thly, Thatoneonly should therefore be made a permanent legal standard. Mhly, That such legal standard should be of such a nature as to bedivisable into any required parts, or fractional sums. Cthly, That it is moreover expedient, that such permanent legal standard measure be so contrived as to be easily, rapidly, and safely transferable, without expense, from any one person to any other person, and from any one part of the country to another, either for the use and benefit of the same individual, or of any other individual, free from any depreciation, de- falcation, or discount, and free from any loss by forgery, or by wear and tear, and also free from any danger of loss that might arise from housebreakers, highway robbers, mobs, insurrections, or even from foreign invasions in any particular district, aud likewise from any loss that might arise from the accidental or intentional destruction of any dwelling- house, banking house, or other building, by fire or otherwise ; and moreover, free from any loss or interest on any quantity, however considerable, of such circulating1 medium, which shall or may hereafter exist, and be transferable tn any of ibe Various ways above- mentioned, and ( above all things) free from being affected by the curse of all or any of th » foreign exchanges. 7t hly, That neither gold or silver ever did possess, or ever can possess, the various important and requisite qualities which are above particularly specified. 8thly, That the want of gold in circulation prevents person* who have large payments to mak£, from making a legal ten- der to the amount of the money so due and payable. 9thly, That it would be unjust to make Bank- notes a legal tender, because the person IO whom tney aie offered any not be certain that they aie not forged. 10thly , That for these various reasons it is highly expedient that a permanent mode of making payments be established, hy means of which legal tenders, even to the largest amount, may be made, without gold; and by means of which legal tenders for fractional sums may be made, without either silver or copper. 11th, That to satisfy the public, as to the solvency of the Bank of England, the Company should every ses- ion lay- before Parliament a clear view of their affairs, and that a maximum be placed on their issues both as to the number and value of their notes. 12th, That it is expedient, that the Bank of England shall establish various branches throughout the whole country, and in many parts of the metropolis, and shall causc books to be; opened in each of those places ; and that persons possessed of Bank- notes shall be entitled, upon depositing such notes, to have credit in the bank- book at the place where such deposit is made, equal to the value in pounds sterling which is speci- fied in such notes, to be payable to the bearer on demand ; and that every person having such credit so entered to his account in any one place as aforesaid, shall be entitled to transfer the whole of such sum so accredited, or auy parts thereof, either to bis own account or to that of any other person at anv place where any such bo-> k is opened. 13thly. That, for the perfect secuiity of all persons who shall at any time become possessed of airy such credit as aforesaid, it is expedient that triplicate corresponding entries be made, th* first of which shall be on the bank book at such place, the second of which shall be delivered to the person who shall have brought the banit notes, as a certificate oftha pioper entry having been made, and the third of which shall be forthwith transmitted to the original Bank of England in London, iu order to be by them filed and dai'y transmitted to the Tower of London for safe custody, after such last- mentioned triplicate shall have been duly recorded in thi* books at the Bank of England itself, and that every transfer be made in like manner. 14thly. That as, under proper regulations in'detail, sucb book- entries and such book transfers cannot ever b\? forged, it would be highly expedient that the law should authorise legal tenders to be made, by tendering such a boDk- trausfer as aforesaid of the sum due, in sucb form and manner as shall hereafter be prescribed by law.
