There is, of suspicion with many ... perhaps, no modem insW. ce of a Military Commander so uniformly unfortunate as has been Gen. Blake • he has lost, we believe, not less than 18 or 19 battles, accompanied by tbe total annihilation of some of the armies he commanded : but il is difficult11" 0 Conceive the possible motive which can have induced'him- po Vong to have exposed his person to incessant danger and fatigue in tbe service of lhat enemy, against whom be cannot he doftbttd to have been sincere at tbe . commencement ofthe contest.' Tbat lie has been a traitor to his country's cause, is in every point of View improbable, anil it certainly requires proof more conviuciug than popular rumour, to, induce a belief that . thechaige thus preferred against binvcaii have any foundation iu faets. A letter bas been received from Capt.. Collyer, of the Sur- veillantc, dated at sea, Jan 17, lat. 43. north, loflg. 11, and another from Capt. Sir T.

ThcEndymion was leit in sight of them, and we trust, they will soon be seen in a British port It has been notified in a Circular from the War- Office, thai Regimental Officers succeeding, wit hout a Staff ap- pointment, to the command of his Majesty's troops abroad, by the death or absence ofthe Commanding Officers, shall, during the time of their actually exercising such commands, have, if Field- Officers, 20 » . a day: if uf inferior iank, 10s. in addition tothelv regimental pay, ' I'he case of Dr . Povali and the Archbishop of Canterbury and Bishop of London, is fixed for hearing, by Ihe Court of King's Bench, on Thursday the 6th of February. The various frauds which have been commuted on com- mercial bodies, as well as private individuals, by the failure of ,'. anks, have long manifested the necessity of a Statu'te to prevent Bankers receiving any sum exceeding a certain amount, within a limited period o'f their stoppingpayment. A Bill for Ibis purpose, is said lo be preparing, under tbe laudable advice of one of the first banking- houses in London in which they recommend to be introduced a clause, declar- ing it felony, 111 future, fur Hankers to receive money froin their customers, contrary to tbe limitations above slated. The Secretary at War has decided, tbat in all cises persons liable, and about to be tried for criminal oll'ences, being per- mitted to enlist in the army, a sufficient bounty to provide them with necessaries will be allowed as a charge against the Public. Tbe Vigilant, destined to this country from the River Plate, and having on board between 150 and 200,000 dollars, and 22,000 hides, bas been lost on the English Bank, near the mouth of that river. Six ofthe crew were drowned, THURSDAY, JANUARY 30,1811. • The immediate result of Lord VV'. Bentinck's return to Palermo, and au interview with the King, is said to have been, lhat every difficulty was amicably aiTanged, and the arrest and trial of a number of French spies and emissaries ordered. It is of this circumstauce the French papers avail themselves, which, in an article from Naples of the bth, would have it believed, that the persons arrested are the " best f inds of the Sicilian Government." The tone of that article sufficiently shews that the projects of the enemy against Sicily have been compleatlv defeated. By accounts received from St. Domingo, dated Ihe 23d of November last, we undeisland, that British subjects and property at P01 t- au Prince were perfectly safe; tbat Petiou's naval force was only two brigs, one of 20, and the olher 16 guns, the former none 011 board, the vessels dismantled and their crews discharged. His Majesty's ship Thalia was cruizing off there. Letters from Gibraltar, of the 9th inst. havs been received.

Captain Gordon bas lost a leg, butisdoiug well. The cause of both Houses of Parliament not attending Divine Service this day, according to general custom, is sup- posed to be the proximity of the ensuing Fast- day, when of course they will attend. The American Senate have passed the Bill for raising an additional military force of 25,000 men I Execution— Yesterday morning, soon after eight o'clock, C. Phillips, for setting tire to his house ; J. Frazer, E. Hall, and W. Wiggins, for burglaries; W Habbertield, for forging and uttering counterfeit Bank Notes ; and P. Whitehead, for forgery, were executed iu the front of the Old Bailey, pur- suant to their sentences. There were upwards often thou- sand people assembled on the awful occasion. Yesterday the twelve Judges assembled at tbe Court of King's Bench, and appointed their Circuits, viz. MIDLAND.— Lord Ellenboaough and Mr. Justice Bailey. NORFOLK — Lord Chief Jus ticeM an. field and Mr. Justice Heath. , . „ HOME — Chief Baron Macdonald and Mr. JnsticeGrose. NORTHERN.— Baron Thompson and Mr. Justice Le Blanc.

There isa report that Valencia continued to hold out up tothe 4th of January, winch we hope wilt prove true.— Letters were yesterday received from Gibraltar and Alicant, but not t! dates sufficiently recent to confirm this agreeable intelligence. It is said, that the number of Spanish troops which retreated with General Mal. i to Alcira, amounts to about 3000 men. While the French are exerting the utmost efforts to ac- complish their purpose in the eastern extremity of Spain, tl- ey are suffering serious difficulties elsewhere, of which Ihe following are seine particulars tbat will assist in ex- plaining the immediate motive of the. offensive operations recommenced by Lord Wellington. The enemy has evacuated the city of Plareutia and its neighbourhood, and the cause of this movenieut was the absolute privation of the means of subsistence. Lately only a small roll had been delivered to each soldier per day, and those not engaged ou duty were destitute of bread, a substi- tute for which was a ration of meat and a few potatoes. Marquis Wellcsley is said to have tendered his resignation to the Prince Regent, who has requested him lo hold his office fur the present. The Marquis is believed to be desirous of baviug some arrangements made with the Irish Catholics, though, from the imperious strain of their present demands, and from their conduct relative to the Convention Act, he does not think those arrangements could be now proposed, without all improper submission to thein. It appears tbat the Court of the Brazils lias determined to put a stop to the commerce which has for sometime been carried on with the Portuguese dominions. Letters were yesterday received from the Azores, dated the 8th of January, freih two Swedish Captains, which stale, that orders had arrived there from the Prince Regent of Portu- gal, for ihe sequestration of all Swedish ami Danish pro- perty. In consequence of this order, their ships bad been seized, and the crews imprisoned in the island of St. Michael. Some very important advices may shortly be expected from Lord Wellington. His lordship, it is said, is in full expectation of a general battle, and has accordingly given orders to General H ill lo take such a position as will enable him toco- operate, if necessary, 111 the momentous conflict, which the gallant Chief awa. ted with a just confidence in bis Cause arid llie valour of his troops, tbe whole of whom were in the highest Spirits, and burning with ardmur to combat the enemies of their country. The Directors of the East India Company, it is said, have entered a protest against the claim to prize- tuOuey set up by the King's troops, for tbe capture of tbe Isle ot Frauee , t . . Another forgery lias been discovered in the Bank. A ' clerk bas been found to have given forged receipts for sums of money to a great amount, which had been intrusted to him to purchase in the funds, but which it appears he never did. He absconded immediately upon the discovery. A French store- ship, of about 900 toils, ladeu with corn, has been captured going into Corfu, by the Elizabeth man of war, aud carried into Malta The Sandwich packet | arrived at Malta on tbe 10th of December, from England. We understand lhat a requisition has been transmitted this afternoon from Mr. Secretary Ryder to tbe Lord Mayor, toobtain leave that the impress may take place within the precincts of tbe city of London during nine days. The ex- ertions employed to procure bauds have for tlivir object the fitting out'a considerable naval force to proceed to America. Y'fiil morning American Papers arrived to tlie 31st Dcc — They are a little less warlike than the preceding.— A dread- ful tire has happened at Richmond in Virginia:— it took piiice at the Theatre dining the performance; upwards of 100 persons were burnt to death, aiid several hundreds more were much injured. The Trial of Mr. Kirw'an, the Catholic Delegate, com- menced on Tuesday and concluded on Thursday, when the Jury, after deliberating a qoarler of an hour, returned a verdict of Guilty.— The Court, after it had received the verdict, informed him that he was at liberty, notwithstand- ing the conviction, to go al iarge, upon his original recogni- zance.

TO THE EDITOR. . : SLR,— If the tendency ofthe subjoined observations,— which is no other than tbat of computing, though only 111 one point of view, the importance of General HILL'S late movement beyond the Guadiana,— can entitle theui to in- sertion in your interesting columns, perhaps from the same consideration lliev will not lie deemed unacceptable to the generality of your numerous readers. General Hill has taken from the enemy two Magazines, containing, Thai of Mcrida - - 160,000 pounds of wheat. That of Alinendralejo 450,000 Ditto Total - - GlO, 000 pounds of wheat. 75 pounds of wheat will . yield 100 pounds uf bread. Upou this calculation, tbe til0,000 pounds of wheat captured as above stated, will afford 813,333 pounds of bread, or 542,222 daily rations at pounds. Thus, the Magazines taken by General Hill will be suffi- cient for supplying a corps of ly, 000 men for nearly eight weeks. The capture therefore is of high importance, as it materially adds to the means of subsistence of the British army, at the same time that it must greatly em- barrass the future motions of the enemy in au exhausted country. If a conjecture of the consequences inav be added, perhaps the rumour ofthe evacuation of Badajos by the enemy will be verified and explained from the circumstance, that the magazines 111 question were most probably intended, partly, for victualling that fortress. These being lost lo the enemy, the Governor of Badajos may have despaired of escaping that famine, which, more certainly than any other mode ofattack, will ultimately reduce the strongest fortress.— 1 am, Sir, your constant reader, Thursday, Jan. 30 1812.

Mr. LOCK HART, " agreeable to notice, after some prelimi- nary observations, moved " thai a Committee be appointed to take into their consideration if any and what persons being Bankrupts, can sit and vote in this House.''— The mo- tion was opposed by tbe CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER and Mr. Baring; it would be carrying disqualification too far. to make the act of bankruptcy the criterion of it. Bank- ruptcy might take place without Insolvency, as the latter might take place without the former; and it would be hard to visit the calamities of the t imes by harsh usage. The storin was great; the bad fruit fell first, but, by its conti nuance and severity, some of the good had also fallen.—- The motion was negatived without a division. Mr. RYDER obtained leave to bring in a bill to amend the Local Militia Act. The amendments he slated to be of a simple nature, that the quota of men should be only four times, instead of six times, as in the original Act; that pow- er should be invested iu the Crown 10 make the quota five times, but that Parliament must be assembled in fourteen days after. Also, that tbe Commanders of the regiments be empowered to ascertain, at tbe end of every four years, w hich of the men would wish to volunteer for the next four years He also wished to make some alteration as to the time of men being called out. He had not, however, made up his mind on this point— The Bill w as then brought up, read a first time, and ordered to be printed, and to be read a second time 011 this day fortnight.— Adjourned to Monday. laostscrtpt. LONDON, Monday Night, February 3, oy ... garde, and Perpignan were reduced to guards, the better to support this undertaking, and combining bis movements with the garrison of Barcelona and the flying corps of the Baron de la Tour. On the 3d instant, the divisions com- menced their movements to unite iu Granoulliers, for the purpose of destroying the Catalan corps which were orga- nizing in this province, and passing afterwards in security the rich convoy which waits iu Gcroua. General Lacy Immediately disposed his troops; the Baron Eroles was charged to oppose the enemy which came from tbe Ampurdan, whilst tbeGeneial in Chief, wilh Brigadier Sarsficld opposed those w hich came from Barcelona. At seven o'clock in the morning, the division of the Baron Ernies opened fire, and notwithstanding llie artillery aud superior force of the enemy, sustained the attack till one in the afternoon, disputing every inch of ground. The enemy, who counted upon an union of J2,000 men in GranoulUers, effected il, but after some loss. General Lacy, penetrating the views ofthe enemy, that they wished to pass to the city lit' Vich, for the purpose of destroying Ihe authorities uuilcd in that city, and Ihe little depAts of'tlie army, with a, rapid movement formed in the Garr'iga and Si. Felieti, the only passes which lead to Vich. O11 the 5th instant, I lie enemy, with 4000 infantry and 400 cavalry, and four pieces of artillery, attacked I lie pass of the Giii'i iga, where General Lacy v. as, decided to penetrate and destroy the little Sj am- h Voice, which consisted of 1500 infantry aridstio cavalry, without artillery. The Spanish troops received the enemy u itb the greatest serenity, drove them bark twice, caused them a great loss, and eventually obliged them to retire, pursued them by the light troops. Brigadier Sarsfield following them, to the neighbourhood ol Hum rlicb, after havingmade thein sensible of his bayonets. The enemy from li e Apurdan bis retired to Geroiia . and Figiiras, and the column of La Tour and the garrison of Barcelona have retired to that city from vrbenc. r it is not imurobahle that La Tour has marched lo the relief of Tar- ragona, which is blockaded by Colonel O'Ryau's corps, con- aiiting of about 5000 men.

ISI2. SUPPLEMENT TO THE LONDON GAZETTE OF SATURDAY, FEB. I. War Department, Downing Street, February 1812. A Dispatch, of which the following is an Extract, has been this Day received by the Earl of Liverpool, from General Lord Viscount Wellington, dated Gallcgus, Jan. 15, 1812. 11 We have continued our operations against Citidad Rodrigo since I addressed you on the 9th instant. We opened our tire from 22 pieces of ordnance in three batteries, in the first parallel yesterday afternoon; and we opened our approach 10, and established ourselves In our second parallel, one hundred and fifty yards from this place, last night.— This measure lias heeu facilitated by LieUtenant- - Gencral Graham having surprised tbe enemy's detachment in the convent of Santa t'nu, close to the body of the place, on the night of the 13th. The right of our ap- proaches was protected and secured by this operation. Major- Geueral the Hon. C. Colville, who commands the • lib division in the absence of the Hon. Lieutenant- General Cole, likewise attacked the enemy's po. t iu Ihe convent of San Francisco last night, and obtained possession of that post, anil of the other fortified posts in ihe suburb, where our troops are uow lodged. Our b ft is protected and seenred by this operation. Two pieces of cannon were taken in the convent of San Francisco. " Preparations to a certain extent are making at Sala manca, for the movement of troops in this direction ; and 1 have reports, that- troops were to he collected at Salamanca un this day. We have, till now, had very fine weather, and the troops bave suffered but little from ex- posure to it." A vessel, having made the quickest passnge from Corunna ever known, las brought papers from thence of ns late a scriptiou to tbe police officers of those districts. A fat pig, only 18 moHths old, was a few days ago slaugh- tered at the farm- yard of Thomas Eyton,- Esq. near Welling- ton, and weighed 40 score and nibs. We refer our readers. to the fourth page for some highly interesting intelligence from the Peninsula.— A battle is expected between Lord Wellington and Marmont. Tbe former presses the siege of Ciudad Rodrigo vigorously, aud the latter, it is supposed, will attempt to raise the siege— A GazetteExtraordinary, in that page, gives an account of the total defeat of the enemy, after attempting to take Tariffa by storm, and the most formidable preparations against tbat place, with the loss of all their artillery and stores On Wednesday last an inquest was taken by Mr. Hill, Coroner, at Kenipsey, on Ihe body of John Roberts, who 011 the Saturday preceding was brought there, from Ashton- uuder Hill, by a vagrant order, aud in about three hours after liis arrival, died.— It appeared in evidence that a mor- tification had taken place in the toes of the deceased, prior to his removal from Ashton, which, with the irritation of the journey, was the- cause of his death. The several Constables who had the charge ot the deceased on the road, however, heing ignorant of his affliction, a verdict was found of— Died by the visitation of God.— The examination by a surgeon of sickly vagrants, previously to their being passed, would be highly proper. At the Quarter Sessions held at New Malton, seven per- sons in the Methodist connection applied for licences to preach, which the Court refused, ou the ground that none of thein were appointed to preach to any specific congrega- tion. At. the Cumberland, Hertford, Beverley, and at Lin- coln Sessions, similar refusals were given — By a late deci- sion of the Court of King's Bench, 011 a motion to compel the Ma gistrates at Hickes's llall to grant a licence lo a dissenting preacher, it w. ts determined that 110 persons are entitled to such a licence, unless engaged to preach regularly lo some permanent body of dissenters. The outrages in Nottingham and the neighbourhood still continue, without any attainable object iu view.— The workmen at Leicester and the county were invited, we under- stand, to begin a similar destruction, but had a better view of their own interests than to attempt it. The report of two murders having been committed in the neighbourhood ofCongletou, in Cheshire, is entirely void of foundation.— It has been publicly contvadictcd by John Wilkinson, Esq, the Mayor of that town. Damaging Bridges.— Joseph Bury and Edward Foulkes, of Wrexham,' for wantonly throwing down the battlement of Pen- y- lnyn bridge, in that town, on Christmas Eve ( besides defraying the expence of repairing the work, and all costs at- tending their prosecution) paid a penalty of five pounds, which the Magistrates ordered to be distributed in white bread to the poor of the parishes of Wrexham, Ruthin, Deu- bigli, and Llanrwst. Caution.— T homas Morgan, of Wrexham, Denbighshire, pig- driver, a niau apparently about 40 years ofage, was taken so ill at a public- house in Wolverhampton, a few days since, that he was carried to the workhouse for medical relief, where he died 011 Thursday After his death, two hundred counterfeit shillings were found upon his person By Permission of the Right Worshipful THE MAYOR AND CORPORATION.

BRITISH AN1) FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY. Extracts from the proceedings at Cambridge upon the formation of an Auxiliary Bible Society there, 12th December last. [ Continued from last week's Journal.] William Rollick, Esq. having proposed the President and Vice- presidents, Mr. Simeon, perceiving that the impnilant observations nf . Mr. Professor Farish, respecting the under- graduates, had not been gcuerally heard, rose to confirm them by facts which had come under his own immediate notice, and hich had given the most unequivocal ptoof of the excellent spirit by which the first movers of the question had been actualtd. That thc proposal of ail Auxiliary Biblei Society in this place had originated with them, was undeni- able ; yet, when they found that the discipline of the univer- sity did not admit of their taking such steps as were necessary foi effecting ' heir' designs they most gladly surrendered the measure into the hands of their seniors, who might with pro- prifty exert themselves for its accomplishment. He then adverted to the prospect they bail of an abundant contribu tiou ; and observed that there had been indeed already an • universal and libeial contnbiition from the whole assembly ; a contribution, every drop of which, he doubted not, was treasured up in the vials of heaven : ( alluding to their tears, Ps. Ivi. 8.) but, whilst they had thus involuntarily shewn the interest they took in this sacred cause, they were impatient to testify it by the. r donations. He theu pioposed a treasurer, < cc. The Rev. Mr, Pr> herniary Yorke proposed thanks to the Chancellor for accepting the office of Patron. The Dean of Carlisle theu moved tn return thanks to the noble Earl ( Hard wicke) for having presided in the chair. The resolution having passed, the Dean, after some pre- limiuarv remaiks, expressed himself lo the following effect: MV Lord, it is my entire persuasion that the history of mankind, 6lnce the days of the Apostles, does not afford any instance of stlrh numerous and animated exertions foi the distribution of the word of God as have been made during lhe last seven or eight v ears. The sacred flame— I will run the hazard of being denominated enthusiastic or superstitious, while our Bibles teach us that the preparation ol the heart is from the Lord, and while 1 read in our Liturgy that fiom Bod all holy desires, good councils, and just works do pro* ceed— 1 say, the sacred ( lame of zeal and spirit fur spreading the Holy Scriptures among the nations has petvaded all ranks and orders of Christians, and I rejoice in contemplating this mark of the Divine goodness, that God bath put it into our minds to be the instruments ol spreading the knowledge of the kingdem of his Son. Therefore, v bile others exciee need less alarms and indulge unwarrantable suspicions, let us crntinue our eudeavuuis to put Bibles into the hands of those who have them not; resting assured that every calculation, which concludes against the expediency of our doing so, is in some port of it undoubtedly erroneous. My Lord and Gentlemen, it is with pain and regret that I am compelled to allow that there are certain persons nf great learning, rank, and respectability in general, who not only do not approve of our proceedings, but rtlso persuade them- selves that they see great danger in them. The Auihor of a late addiess to our sei ate is oue of tho- e persons; aud though his address is but short, it contains imputations, which every member of our establishment, who subscribes to the Bible Society, is called upon to repel. When I left London, yesteidav in the afternoon, I knew tiot whether the heavy charges imputed to us who are of the establishment, and w ho contribute also to the support of the Bible Society, might not be biought forward and enforced at this meeting. 1 therefore prepared mysell with the afore- said address in thy hand to make such concise lematks upon it, paragraph by paragraph, as occurred to me on the pem- sal of it. Bui judging from the perfect unanimity which pre- vails in this numerous assembly, I now think it better to re- serve myself on this subject to another opportunity wheu, either through the pi ess or otherw ise, I may, it necessary and expedient, take into consideration the soundness of tbe arguments, the candour and christian charity of the charges and insinuations, tonlained in the addiess of the very learn- ed and resectable author. My Lord, though I am under no anxiety respecting the impression which this address may be supposed lo make on the n i « d of any who reads it, and notwithstanding the re- solution I bave just expressed of remarking very little on the contents of it at present, I must request leave to tiespass for a lew moments on the patience of the meeting, with one or two concise observations. In this address it is plain that every member of the Established Cburcli who subscribes to the Bible Society is treated as a person who may in so doing probably enough be contributing to the veiy dissolution of our Ecclesiastical Establishment. Now it must be allowed, lhat so heavy and tremendous a charge ought not to have been made on slight grounds ; and posterity, I think, will scarcely believe, that the foundation of this charge, that it, that the dreadful fault which we have committed, is, that we do our utmost to dis- tribute the authorized version of the Bible, unaccompanied with any other book, throughout the world, in the language which the inhabitants!)! the respective nations can understand. This is the sole object of the society to which we belong ; 3 society which candour will admit, and prejudice cannot deny, has done more in this view, during the short period of seven years, than all the societies in Christendom have done in a cciitury. The term « authorized version' is emphatical, because ex- tremely important; it is so important iu my mind, that when- ever the society shall begin to publish their Bibles witb glosses, comments, and alterations of their own, that is, whenever they shall distribute unauthorized versions, 1 pledge myself that I will instantly withdraw my name from them. But, my Lord, I will not dissemble that this Is far from a complete statement of tbe grounds of the objections of our adversaiies. There appeals to be in their minds a corner in which resides thc principle of a rooted aversion to any con nexion in religious concerns with christians of any denomina- tion if they dissent from the Established Church. By per- mitting diisenters to join with us iu this excellent work, we are said to throw weight into their scale, we desert the esta- blishment, we encourage and promote defection from it. This, this is that solid nucleus of dislike and hostility; a nucleus, which after enveloping itself, like the comet, in much nebu- lous obscurity, teiniiuates in a fiery tail of | iortctitous mag. nitride. My Lord, I bring forward distinctly the objection that is made to us on account of our connexion wilh dissenteis, be- cause on all occasions of contrariety of sentiment, I feel al- most an instinctive aversion lo vain and fruitless contentions concerning the outsides of questions. On all occasions I Wish to meetjoirly the real points in dispute, and to grapple with them. And so in the preseut instance. I am convinced that if several of our most respectable adversaries were now pre- tend and amongst them I may well reckon the learned author of this address, they would say,' that they heartily joined in many of the handsome things that bad been said this inoi iiinjr respecting the extraordinary exertions of the Bible Society ; and that, in translating the Bible and dispersing it into foreign parts, we bad done well; but that we marred every thing by having formed an amicable junction with the dissenters from the Ecclesiastical Establishment of this country. ( lo be continued ) ' effecting any thing against him, and after following him for upwards of a league, and making ' an ineffectual attempt to break him, I judged it mdviseable to give over the pursuit, and he effected his retreat, with the'loss of about twenty killed, aud as many wounded, frofn ionr nine- pounders, which, by the great exertions of Major Hawker, and bis officers and men, got within range, and ft, flowed him fur some distance, but were unable to close upon him, ' owing to tbe deepness of the country.— One wing of tire " list light infantry, under Lieutenant- Colonel the Hon.

Since my letter to your lordship from Merida, of the 30th ultimo, I have the honour to re| K> rt, lhat from all the inform ation 1 bad received, 1 had reason to suppose, that Drouet was concentrating his troops at this place. I consequently moved on yesterday, for the purpose of attacking him. On my approach to the town, I found that the greater part of the enemy's troops had moved off the preceding day, ill the direction of Villa Franca, and that his rear. guartl was on its maich, covered by his cavalry, which skirmished with the hussars of my advanced guard, and retired after receiving a few rounds from tbe horse artillery. In this town we found a few stores, of which the enclosed is a return. 1 thought it possible the enemy might have afforded me an opportunity of doing something here. MV LnltD, Meiida, January 6, 1812. My letter of the 2d and 3d instant would acquaint your lordship of my having, on the lst instant, marched with the turps under my command to Ahnendralejo, In the hope that Count d'Eilon, who had collected the greater pait of his troops at that place, might have given me an opportunity of coming in contact with him, as well as of my disappointment in that respect, he having previously fallen back in the direction of Lerena, leaving only a small rear- guard Almendralejo, which retired also on our approach. I have the honour to acquaint your lordship, that it was my intention to have followed the enemy, and, failing in my desire to bring hita to action, to have given linn every possible annoyance in his retreat; but the dieadful state of the weather, the condition of the tWads ( which are daily becoming worse), and the etobsequent difficulty of getting up my supplies, render aft'y further operations on my part impossible foi the present, without incurring risks, aud making sacrifices, greater than could have been justified by the occasion, or by your lordship's instructions. I therefore determined, after baiting two days St Almeudralejo, and occupying Villa Franta aud Fuente del Maeetre, to put the troops into cantonments in this town and neighbourhood, there to await a more favourable opportunity of acting; tiusting that the alarm occasioned to the enemy by the movement already made, will bave in part effected one of the objects with which I was instructed by your lordship to take the field. A part of the troops accordingly returned here yesterday, 4hd the remainder are now 011 their march; Ihe enemy being, by the last accounts which 1 have received, also in full march towards the south, his rear- guard having left Zafra and Los Santos yesterday. I have the satisfaction to enclose, for your lordship's information, a letter from the Honourable Lieutenant- Colonel Abercromby, detailing the particulars of a successful attack, made by some of the 2d hussars and Portuguese cavalry, acting under his orders at Fuente de! Maestre, on a body of the enemy's dragoons, which reflects the greatest credit on Lieutenant- Colonel Abercromby, who directed, and the officers aud non commissioned officers and men who executed it. 1 have, & c.

In puisuance of your lordship's instructions, I put the troops under my orders in maiuh fioin tbeir several canton- ments, and entered this province ou the 21th instant, hy Albuquerque, Villa de Rey, antl St. Vincente; and, by the intelligence which 1 received from various quarters, I was led to entertain the most sanguine hopes that I should have been able to surprise, the enemy's Hoops stationed in this town. I was, however, disappointed in my e.\| iectations, by finding in Li Nava, on our approach to that village yesterday, with the column fiom Albuqueique, a party of the enemy, consisting ol about thiee hundred Volligeurs, and a few Hussars, being part of a detachment which had arrived theie the night preceding, apparently on a plundering excursion, e remainder wheieof has proceeded lo Cordivaltas, another village about two leagues distant — A patrole from La Nava fell in with the head of our column, and gave the alarm to the detachment, which immediately commenced its letreat towards Meritla, followed by the cavalry of my advanced guard, consisting ot between three and lour bundled ol the 13th litht dragoons and 2d hussars. — As 1 considered the iuteiccpting of the entire of this parly to be of the greatest importance lo our ulterior operations, I directed the cavalry above mentioned to make eveiy effort to effect it, or at least to check its march until the arrival ol some infantry.— The intrepid and admirable manner, however, m which the enemy retired, bis inlantry lormed in square, and favoured as be was by the nature of the counliy, ot which he knew how to take the fullest advantage, prevented the cavalry alone fiom LONDON GAZETIE EXTRAORDINARY. nOWNINC- STREET, JAN. 28. [ Transmitted by Major- General Cooke.] SIR, Tunffa, January 1, 1812. In my last I had the honour to state that the enemy commenced to batter ill breach on the 29th of December, since which period until yesterday he kept up a heavy fire of cannon on the breach, aud of shells ou the town, causeway, and island. At eight o'clock on the morning ol December 31 a strong column was seen rapidly advancing to the breach; our musquetry several times checked the enemy; and the firm front, aud intiepid behaviour of the troops, iu less than an hour, gained a complete victory. The most bold of the enemy fell near the loot of the breach, and the mass of the column made a precipitate iclreat. The situation of the enemy's wounded, with which the ground was covered between his battery and our fire, w here they must inevitably have perished, induced uie, from motives of compassion, to hoist a flag ol truce to carry them off. Some were brought into the place over the breach, but, from tbe extreme difficulty attending this, 1 allowed tbe enemy to carry thc remainder away. Gen. Leva), the French Com- mander in Chief, expressed his acknowledgment for the couduct of tbe British and Spanish nations on this occasion In Ihe most feeling and giateful terms. We have made prisoners 10 officers and 20 or 30 soldiers ; thc enemy's loss has been very severe. The column that attacked the breach was 21) 00 men, composed of all the grenadiers and vo'itigeurs of the army. The enemy iilvesiI'll this town on the 20th December, since which time 1U00 British and 7 or 800 Spanish troops, with only the deleti'ce of a wall, which appears to bave been built as a defence agaihst archery, and before Ihe use of gunpowder, have resisted au army of 10,000 men, with a regular battering train of artillery, and have at last defeated and repulsed them.-—- The wall of the town has the additional disadvantage of being commanded within half musket shot, and flanked or taken in reverse in almost every part. The conduct of all the troops has been admirable, and that of Lieutenant- Colonel Gough, and tbe 2d battalion of the 87th regiment, exceeds all praise. Equal credit is due to tlie indefatigable exertions of Captain Smith's royal engineers, tu whom much of our success is due.

In uiy letter of the 1st instant, I had the honour lo relate the particulars of our proceedings here, and ol our victory at the breach. Since that pciiod, the enemy has kept up a partial fire, and tbe breach nits yesterday coinplciely open for a space of 25 or 30 yards.— From Ihe movements of the enemy last night, I was induced to suppose he intended another assault, and the garrison Waited in eager expectation to give him another prool of British valour. To our astonish- meur, this morning, at day- light, tbe columns ol the enemy were already at a distance, having taken Ibe advantage of a dark and stormy night to make a precipitate letreat, leaving in our possession all Ins artillery, ammunition, stoles, & c.— 1 immediately ordered Major Broad, with a part of tbe 47th regiment, to follow tbe enemy ; he tuok possession of his artillery, w aggons, and a quantity of stores, time enough to save them fiom the ( lames, thc enemy having set fire lo tliem. We have made some prisoners, Fiom the number ot dead found ou the giountl the enemy occupied, his loss on the whole must have been very greai. Marshal Victor was" present in the Fiench camp to give oiders for their retreat. Wc have thus seen tbe greatest effort tbe Fteucii aie capuble of making, frustrated by 1800 British and Spanish troops, with only Llie defence of a paltry wall; and an army of 10,000 men, commanded by a Marshal of France, letreat- ing from Ihem silently in the night, aftei having been repulsed and deteated, leaving behind all their artillery and stores. The unremitting vigilance and exertion, the zeal and intre- pidity of every individual of this garrison is above uiy praise.

It might be said, the fund might be intended for buying Cornish Boroughs, or for prncu riti'j totes for Ministers. The Commissioners were not bound not to make such an application. Of the ttoo separate Courts established by tbe present Bill, the one might embark in a. factious opposition to the other. On nil points, he ( Mr. Whitbread) demanded explanation, and till that was afforded, he could not Vote for the Speaker leaving the Chair. The CHANCSILOR of the FEXCHEFTUEU said, he was At a los « if the Right Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Tiernev) objected to the principle of the Bill, as he seemed to thirtk it might have heen brought in with more propriety after tbe Restrictions had ex- pired. Thc question for the consideration of tbe House was, if the obiectious were of such a desciiption, as to require a more detailed inquiry. Explanations had beeu demanded upon many points ; hut if Ihe House was satisfied that no more, upon the whole, was asked than was necessary, there would be no occasion, at present, for entering into detail. It iiad origi- nally been intended that the Commissioners for the King's private property should each have ^ 1000 per annum. This had since appeared too large, and he had no doubt that per- sons would be found to act without anv salary at all. One objection was made to the Prince'sfuud remaining at his own disposal; but Parliament was not, as a Right Honourable Gentleman imagined, making an airangement foi the Prince's HOUSE OF COMMONS— MONDAY, JANUARY 11. They order of Ihe day being read for the House going into a Committee upon the Royal Household Arrangement bill, Mr. TIERNEY opposed tne Speaker's leaving tbe Chair; ill doing which he stated his object to be to know whelhei any and w hat reduction could be. made of the Civil List, without diminishing the royal splendour and dignity ; to have the List, and every thing belonging to it, referred to a Committee, who should minutely examine it, and suggest what alterations il may be adviseable to make, at once honourable lo the sovereign and beneficial to ihe people. He argued at some length on the propriety of Parliament paying the debts of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, unless tbey could be shewn to be. disgracefully contracted, which was not possi- ble, and thut he should be placed on the Throne as he ought to he, with a mind tree from embarrassment, and capable of being solely devoted to the interests of the country. Upon the whole, Mr. Tierney contended that it vvas the duty uf Par- liament to take the entire arrangement into consideration, and that the House should resolve itself into a Committee on a future day ; in which case, it was his intention to- morrow to move for a select Committee, to investigate the different matters connected with the ariangeiiient of the Household.— Mr. JOHNSTONE observed, that by the proposed arrangements her Majesty would have a separate Court, and in the House of Lords would have no less than 9 peers subject to her influence, and in that House eight members, besides several uioie whq were competent toholdseats. He was not, however, disposed, to complain of the bill in general, and would theiefore vote for the Speakei's leaving ine chair.— Mr. WHITBRF. AD spoke on the same side. He contended that it was a bill lor creating a separateinflueiice, which might or might not be used. Should the two Courts pull together, the influence of the Crown must b « augmented ; should tbey prove al variance, theAdminisira- tionoflbe Government must be weakened. The Prince had foruieily regretted that he was deprived of the opportunity of shewing Ins filial duty. The feelings of any sou musi Have been galied by such an opportunity having been refused What necessity was there for all this machineiy ? The simple mode was to liansler the Civil List to the Prince, to let bun provide tor Ihe comfort and dignity of his Father, and lei Parliament lurnish funds lo take Ins Roya, Highness from hi present degtadeil statu. Let Ins debts be paid. The Kiti teemed with incongruities, both wiih respect to Parliament and the Prince. It created three places tor Cummissroners to attend to th3 King's private property, who were bound ;. o ' coming to the Tbrohe; it was only * an arrangement during the King's indisposition ; nor was it impossible that the Prince might return to his former state, and therefore his iucoaic should not betaken away. The Prince had contiacted honour- able engagements which he ought to be enabled to keep. Had he proposed ah inquiry into the private affairs of his Royal Highness, he shonld have, probably, been reminded of what had taken place upon a former occasion, and been asked if there was any legal obligation upon Parliament to discharge these debts. Parliament had formerly given warning to the Prince's creditors upon that subject. It did not appear, from the last Report of the Physicians, that the King might not be restored to au intermediate degree Of mental health, in which, as in the commencement of his present disorder, he might oc- casionally enjov Ihe society qf his family. For the Queen lo have the control of the King's Household, liail been Censured by a Right Hon, Gentleman as a mark of disrespect to his Royal Highness. But nothing could he more invidious than to put the whole under the control of the Prince. If the Queen is to have the care of his person, she certainly must have the control'of hisservants. The House iniirlit reasonably conclude tiiat the preseut plan had been submitted to Parliament with the approbation'of the Prince. Was he not free tochange his Ministers if he disapproved of their conduct ? It was far bet- ter that Parliament should relieve the Prince from the invidi- ous task of having all the tiVil List; hatl he pro|> osed that, be shonld have been told it was his intention to lie by, and watch a favourable opportunity Of telling how neglected the King had been by his Royal Highn& s. What was this mighty Court ? Four Lords ot the Bedchamber, some Equerries, and a few pages I It was no otherwise a Court than by being about the King. The Constitution was not so nicely balance'i tlsat four Lords of the Bedchamber, even with the Pages, Could destroy its equilibrium. More would be said about the different provisions in tft' 4 Committee; none, however, of the objections affected tbe principle of the Bill. Mr. PONSON » Y disapproved of the plan. The itight Hon. Gentleman himself did not seem |> erfectly to understand it. tlad the RegenVthe whole of the Civil List, he must apply it bv the advic' 6 of his Ministers, and no ungenerous advice would be given by the Right Honourable Gentleman. The Regent should have the same revenue as the King, as be ivas to have the fame house. The rto'use knew nothing ot honour- able engagements. The House should have had a Message on the subject. There would have been no reluctance on the part of Parliament to deal liberally wilh the Prinde. He ob- jected tothe Bill, because, in its principal points, it seemed to him to be unconstitutional; at present he only wished for a little delay. Mr. ADAVI thought that every clause of the Bill involved a distinct principle. No time ought to be lost, as the clauses were numerous. He should, at a future period, explain that clause which took ^ 50,00t) from the Civil List, aiid left ihe rest to his Royal Highness. He trusted he should be able to satisfy every honourable mind, that the clause Was strictly proper. The inadequacy that had existed for many years betwixt the Prince's income and his expenditure, could not be imputed to his Roval Highness, nor to those Who were intrust- ed with the management of his affairs.— Mr. TIEIINEY ex- plained. The House then divided.— For the Speaker leaving the Chair 14l— Against. 59— Majority 82. The House in a Committee, the blink in the first clause, relative to the appropiiatiun of 7O,( 0O6h from the Consolidated Fund to the Civil List, was filled lip-, and the clause carried without debate or division. Aftelr a few words froth the CHAN- CELLOR ofthe EXCHEQUER and Mr. TIF. RNEY, it Was agreed to passover the clauses from the first to the fourteenth. And it is understood that the intention is to divide the draft of the original Bill into two Bills, as more convenient to the purposes for which it was drawn up — Mr. BRAND expressed sonle dissat- isfaction as to the amount and reasons of the grant of .£ 50,000 from the revenues of the Prince to the Civ'l List. He did not know why the whole .£ 120,000 which was the whole of the Prince's Income, should not merge in Ihe Civil List; and ad- dressed himself particulaily to Mr. Adam Ibr information ou these points — Mr. ADAM commenced his account of the Prince's revenues and obligations,. from the year 1795, at which time what was intended as a parliamentary permanent provision was established, and also the mode of disbursement regulated by the same authority! The mode then settled as to payments was, that the tradesmen of bis Royal Highness shoiild, m ten days after the quarter in which their accounts became due, give their accounts to the proper officers of the Prince's Household, antl, in default of this, ihey were preclud- ed by the Act from future payment. They were to give ten days notice, in all eases, by a clause in the Bill, which, when attempted to be carried into execution, was found in many respects totally impracticable, from the necessity that existed of maintaining an honourable understanding inmost of his Royal Highness's engagements The effect of a faulty nnd impracticable arrangement was such, lhat in 1803, when his atfaiis were before Parliament, many demands appealed of a nature that prevented their liquidation. He suffered also by conferring a considerable portion of his revenues on him by anticipation. To this was to be added many obligations of an honourable description, which had not entered into the con temptation of Pailiameht; one under which he lay to the Prince of Hesse wa3 very heavy, but such as the feelings ot bis Royal Highness compelled him to satisfy. Neither the most honourable Intentions, nor the best managemeut,* could free him from the embarrassment which those numerous obligations laid him under. The regulation wilh regard to the ten per cent, deduction upon some of his tradesmeu, was another source full of vexation. This was a rule general in its application, and in many respects unjust. His Royal Highness, therefore, felt that to enforce it strictly Woultl be acting ill a manner al- together incompatible with those honourable feelings which he wished to make tbe rule of his conduct. For three or four years afier 1803 it was clearly understood that his revenues were to be applied ill a manner thatwouldexonerate him from the weight of the. obligations under which he lay, and that a system of expenditure would be settled that would prevent the like in future ; but il was some time before lhat system could be applied, and in tbe mean time he bad to encounter great and unexpected difficulties. Iiidependant of the great sums applied to the payineut of his debts oy bis trustees, who proceeded regularly fur two or tbreeyears in that course which tbey had prescribed, he was subjected to other demands, such as no Prince of Wales bad eyer been subjected to. There was taken under the head of property lax no less than .£ 12,000 ; he was also obliged to pay a rent of .£ 4000 independantof repairs, and Vast expenditures on improvement, so that the increased demands in 1808, added to those xbligations of ho- nour to which be had voluntarily bound himself, amounted iu that year to .£ 49,000 ; calculating, theiefore, upon this and the property tax, not a penny of which was in contemplation Of Parliament, he would be fountl to have thus thrown upon him no less ihan -£' 175,000. Here, said the Honourable Gentleman, were assets sufficient for all his purpo. es, for he had a right to count upon all this as hisoivn. Afler thus stat- ing the vast sums taken . from his Royal Highness by casual which animated his Royal Highness, that was, that of =£ 60,000 • vlrich he had received in tines from the Duchy of Cornwall, the whole sum, with the exception of ,£ 3000, were given up • o the same laudable purposes of discharging his obligation-, and this, it should be recollected, was from a source that did not enter into the calculation of any party interested in his iffairs. The -£ 3000 which he had excepted, he could also ac- count for, he himself had the honour of being ; he instrument of applying it in three acts of beneficence to three persons highly deserving it. For the proof of that proper arrangement « hieh now exists in Ibe affairs of bis Rota' Highness, and of ' be other matters which be bad meutii ued to ibe House, lie could refer to respectable testimony, to General Hulse, his Treasurer, to Colonel M'Mahon, his Secretary, and to Mr. Coatts, his Banker. Of his Officers he did not wish to speak ; he would leave tbe House to deal with them as they might think proper; for biinseil, he felt that this was perhaps the last time that be would bave the honour of addressing them ; pri- vate reasons, with which this House or the wot Id had nothing to do, obliged him again to resume the profession which for some time he had laid aside ; but in the situation in which the partiality of bis Prince had placet! him, it would he a source of perpetual pleasure to him, to know that be had done his duty to the extent of his abilities, and with tbe approbation of his own conscience.— Mr. BRAND got up after the last speaker, and complimented him highly for his feelings and Zeal; he liad in a great measure satisfied hir. i, end thought that a more adequate provision should be made for his Royal Highness, and that the mode of doing it should be more un- exceptionable — The clause was then read and passed : as feerfc the remaining Clauses. circumstances, he proceeded lo state I he annual charges upon nis income; these amounted, including his allowance to tbe Princess of Wales, Jti I ' i,, 100, besides <£ 5,000 paid at the Trea- sury, to no less than <£ 53,000. Under all those circumstances ot difficulty, tbe commands of his Royal Highuess to him and his other servants were, that his intention should be fulfilled, that his obligations should not be defeated. He would not in- sist on the pnvate rights ot the Prince, but merely state, thai it what he was entitled to on lhat account, if his patrimony as Duke of Cornwall had not bet- u withheld, that he would have sufficient of Iiis own o supply all his exigencies Of these rights theie was no question: consultation alter consultation bad beeu held by those most adverse, trom the nature ot their situation, to his claims, ami the iesult was, mat a Lord Chan- cellor oi England, a Lord Chancellor of Ireland, Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, and oiher euiiut m cnaracters, had gi- ven theii opinion decidedly in lavoui oi his lights: after wh.. t he s. « d, be would at least expect, tnat such a clause as tnat ' before the House would pass by acclamation. One thing more HOUSE OF COMMONS— TUESDAY, JANUARY IS. Mr. H. ADDINCTON moved for Returns to be laid before, ihe House of the uumber of men at present serving iu the Local Militia, including Nun- commissioned Olficers aud Drummers; the numbers rctually enrolled in each county when last u » - sembled ; and the numbers which will be entitled to their discharge on the 25th Decemb-' r, 1812, in cousfqncnce of having completed their tour yeiis* service— Ordered.— The bill for allowing the PrinCe Regent .£ 100,000. for discharging tbe expenses attending his assumption of the Roval Authority was read a first time.— Mr. SINCLAIR prevented a Petition from tbe Electors of Cait hness, praying for a Reform in Parlia- ment generally, and particularly as to their own case ; by the present form of Representation Caithness and Bute alternately send a mem her, according lo which regtdalin I Caithness would in the next session be without a representative.— Ordered to liu on the table. Lord FOLKESTONE brought in a bill to amend the last In- solvent Debtors Act, by extending it to persons confined for the expenses of suits, and under process of Excuinntunication of Ecclesiastical Codrts. Mr. BANKES obtained leave to bring iu a bill to prevent the graining Offices in Reversion, f ir joint lives, or for Ihe benefit of survivors; as the bill already passed for that purpostt would expire on the first df February. On the question for bringing up the Report of the Com- mittee on bis Majesty's Household bill. Mr. Bnouc » AM again stated his objections to it at great length ; chiefly, that the House had KYiiy the bare assertion of Ihe Chancellor of the Exchequer for its necessity ; that there was no mention of tils Prince of Wales in the bill; add the great patronage it would create at the disposal of thte Queen.— Mr. ROSE replied til Mr. Brougham The Hon. H. G. BMttETf, in confol'mity to the duty he owed to his constituents, not to allow a single shilling of the public money to be voted away without proof of its necessity, avowed his intention to oppose the further progress tif the bill. He entered iuto an historical detail of the proceedings of Parlia- ment from the reign of Charles If. on tbe subject of permitting placemen to retain seats in the House of Commons, and de- clared iiis determination to submit to Parliament a motion on the subject. He dwelt at considerable length on the disincli- nation which appeared on the part of Ministers to consult the general feeling Oli this subject, and instanced thc case of CoL M'Mahon's appointment as a striking illustration of this fact. He hatl no doubt that as An honourable man, Col. M'Mahoa was entitled to the gratitude of ihe Prince, but he could not allow he was entitled to one shilling of the public money.— The influence of corruption vvas most extensive. One man in five in the country looked to the patrrtnage of office ; aud under these circumstances it was most e* s'ential tothe House to endeavour to keep itsetf as pure as possible. The true in- terests of the Crown would never suffer by Parliament, even were there not a siugle placeman silting up: m theoeiiches; and at tbe same time such a Parliament would Stedfastly maintain the privileges and endeavour to increase the happi- ness of the people ; while it frouid carefully abstain frorn the adoption of any measures by which these privileges would be invaded, and that happiness endangered. Mr. SHERIDAN expressed his surprize at the introduction into the debate by his hoil. friend who had just spoken, of so much irrelevant malter. His hon. friend had not done himself justice, for he had put those who might be in political hos- tility wilb him in possession liot oulv of the motion which it was his iiileution to make at a future period upon another subject, hut. he had also unfolded to them the arguments which he meant to urge on that occasion: and if he bad trail to advise his hon. Irltlttd, it would have beeu to have rehearsed his speech in a mote retired situation.— The hon. gentleman had said a great deal about tile advantages whtch would ensue from a Parliament constituted in such aud such a manner, and of his conviction, that a Parliament Bo constituted would abstain fioin such antl such nieasitics. With regard to the general principle, he ( Mr. S.) was as earnest a ref , rmer as any man ; and if hi* hon. frieutl's arguments would tend to induce any of the great people of the country to ab- tain from accepting places of which they stood in no need, he should think them eminently serviceable to the countrv. For in- stance, if a certain noble Earl could be induced by such argu- ments to abstain frt> m holding such an office as Postm ister- General, he thought that a irreat deal of gootl would - sue.— He ( Mr. Sheridan) had said this merely to shew his h in. friend hnw cautious he ought to be iu throwing out any general^ tig- ina. His hon. friend hatl arraigned the conduct of VI misters iu the recent appointment of Col. M'Mahon to the Paymaster- ship of Widows' Pensions, as if that appointment were a corrupt act on their part lo curry favour with tbe Prince.— If, however, it could be proved lhat the office ought to be abolished, Be had authority t' » siy, in the name ol Colonel M'Mahon, that he ( the Col.) would not stauil in the way of such abolition.— fffeai, hear!)— If ever there was a man by the side of a Prince who faithfully served both thc Prince and the public, Col. M'Mahon w as that man. He was proud of the honour of calling that gentleman his friend; ami lie could assure the House, that Col. M'Mahon prized infinitely more the honourable testimony so generally borne to his high cha- racter in a recent discussion in the House of Commons, than any emoluments which his new atuatinn mighi all'ord him, ami would much rather abandon the whole of ihe latter, than oue tittle of his claim to tbe former. He did not approve of that part of the bill which vested the care of the King's person in the Queen ; who, from tbe whole tenor of her cuuduct through life, be was convinced, did not wish fur such au ardu- ous situation; antl accepted of it merely through affection tor her Sovereign and husband. As to what had been said about the Pr incess ol Wales, he conceived it a most officious interference to touch upon such a subject. Whensoever any proposal should come before the House for settling an establish- ment oil the Princesses, he ho| ied it would be cheerfully re- ceived by the House; because it was fit that every individual ofthe Royal Family should be placed in a situation of inde- pendence, of comfort anil splendour, suited to their high rank. He highly approved of the statement made bv his learned friend ( Mr. Adam) relative to the debts of the Prince, which ought to be immediately put an end to, not by such a dis- graceful Act as lhat passed in 1795, bui by a liberal and effi- cient measure. In 1803, something was done lo do awav the disgrace of that bill, by an ariangeineut introduced by Mr, Addington ; but that arrangmeut did not include any relin- quishment, on the part of the Prince, of his right lo the arrears Irom the Duchy of Cornwall. Just and honourable debts wera owing by tne Prince at this moment, and was if fit that there should be noihing bnt a contingent and precarious security for the payment of Ihem ? It was the duty, therefore, ol Parlia- ment to make provision for these ; and he did nut think the present bill answered the purpose. Lord OSSOLSTON complained ofthe perfectly gratuitous al. In; ion which the hon. gentleman bad made to tbe acceptance by his noble relation of the office of Postmaster- General; an office which had always been held by an iudividual of his noble relation's rauk. Mr. SHERIDAN disclaimed the least intention of saying any tiling disiespectlu! of the noble Earl. Tne higher the noble Earl's character, the stronger vvas bis argument, which tended to remind his hon. friend, lhat in the miil- t of his general prin- ciples, there were cases iu which men ot the best character did accept situations such as those his hon. friend exclaimed against. As to gratuitous allusions, it ought lo be recollected that he' ( Mr. S.) must bave fell a little hurt at the gratuitous allusions whn, h bail been made to Cul M'Mahon. The Report was then brought up, agreed to, and the Bill ordered to tie read a th. rd ' nne to- morrow.
