Lord SiDMOUTH said, that he feared that on the present occasion he should not be able to do justice to his own feelings. He derived, however, much sa- tisfaction from what had fallen from two Noble Lords who had preceded him. With the one ( EaiT Aber- deen) he eoncuwed in considering the present ques- tion as one of the deepest importance ; with the other ( Etr! Hardwicke), he agreed in thinking,, that after tiie concessions made to the Irish Catholics in 1793, that concession had then ganc'its utmost length, and that there a stand ought to hare been made. But he reust differ from these Noble Lords in the view they took of the consequences that might arise to this country from any opposition to further concessions. — The Noble Earl who brought forward the motion seemed to think that more had been granted to the lower orders of the Catho! t « > tivm to the higher ? that the higher classes, the nolsility of that persuasion, were stiil depiived of the rank and privileges which they were entitled to enjoy, while m iny advantages were derived by the lower order of Catholics, from the concessions aheady made to them. Yet to both, it had been argued, belonged the right of> uch con- cessions. They were not to be matter of discussion and deliberation— they ought to be acknowledged as matter of l ight. This question of right it was not necessary for him ; o examine and discuss. His No- ble friend ( Ld. Aberdeen) had, in his opinion, com- pletely settled and disposed of that question. Indeed such a doctrine was wholly untenable. When the improvement and melioration of the condition of Ire- land was sought after, it was the condition of its pea. santry which it should be our study to improve.— Among them idleness and ignorance still prevailed, nd as long as they were exposed to the influence of these vices, their condition could not be improved.— He had never been a friend to the penal laws by which " reland had been oppressed. It was a vicious sys- tem ; and he agreed with Mr Burke, that that sys- tem had at one time been carried to a vicious per- fection. Such a policy he deplored ; he detested the extreme to which it had been carried. But while he deplored such a policy, he could not but acknowledge the fatal necessity which gave it birth, and referred for his justification on this head to the spirit and the practice which prevailed among the Irish Catholics it the period to which he alluded. The Noble Viscount then proceeded to consider the conduct of the Irish Government, and of the Noble Duke at the head of that Government. There- was not the least colour for any of the charges made against that Government. But why was such a motion as the present deforned till now ? Why has there been no necessity for it during the last eleven years ? Much had been said of the wisdom, the moderation, the patriotism of the Catholics on various occasioss during that period; yet it never has been thought necessary till now to adduce the display of these virtues ss a grouod for granting a Committee of Inquiry. But it seems that some Noble Lords would have all the laws repealed, upon which, perhaps, depended the security of property. Yes, have them all repealed ; and yet talk of no se- curities in their room. The House did not now evefi hear of the Veto. Yet such counter- secui ities were j no doubt absolutely necessary ; should not the King be made at least a co- ordinate power with the Pop- — but would the Catholics agree to this ? Would their Hierarchy submit to this! he believed not. While such a state of things remained, he must dread not only the opinions, but the morals of the Catholics.— He could not consent, without due provision for the safety of the present establishment, to place in the h md> of the Catholics high military and legislative authority. He could not assent to this equalizing of religions. He could not assent to see the symbols and attributes of authority carried one day to Church and the next to Mass. The union of Church and State should ever be held sacred by him. They were inseparably united, and every thing would be risked by the dissolution of that union, of that most sacred alliance From its downfall, the most dreadful poli- tical convulsions and every other species of misery might justly be apprehended. With such an impres- sion on his mind, he could vote for nothing that had so fatal a tendency ; he must therefore oppose the mo- tion of the Noble Earl. The Marquis Wr. LLESLEY exhorted the House to a temperate discussion of the question, since it involv- ed nothing less than the security of the Protestant establishment, or, in other words, the co- existence of botli the Church and the State. The Noble Earl had pLaced in the very front of his argument a news- paper report, which he ( Lord Wellesley) had not seen till his Lordship mentioned it; and in which an im- pression was endeavoured to be conveyed, that an of- ficer of justice had been packing a jury. But it ap- peared by the very decision of the Cou- t, that the objection on that ground had been over- ruled, lie had also spoken generally of the conduct of the Irish Government upon some recent transactions ; but he defied the Noble Earl to prove, that the Government had interposed between the Parliament and the right to petition to it of ( he meanest subject of that country ; or that those subjects had been oppressed either by the Sovereign or the Parliament. In the whole trans- actions of the Government which the Noble Marquis felt himself personally interested to vindicate, was no step taken to check such a right; and t his he affirm- ed in the name of that Government, for whose ho- nour he felt deeply interested. He not only believed, that it was contrary to the feeling of the head of that Government, but he was convinced that die principal adviser of that Government would utterly repudiate and abhor any attempt to stand between the Parlia- ment and the people in the exercise of this high right. The measures which they had adopted were necessary to the safety of the kingdom, were advised by its law officers, and were sanctioned by the Court of King's Bench. Whether the advice was right or wrong, whether the law was bad or good, it was not necessary to discuss at present, although he Was perfectly prepared at. a future opportunity to de- fend it. Whatever was the pretence of the meet- ing, whetfier to petition or otherwise, the Govern- ment were advised that such a convention was con- trary to law. He remembered that the opinion of Mr Fox was in favour of this very act, in 17S)' i, for he stated that the principle against which it was di- rected. was one calculated ta create disturbance.— What did the Irish Government do ? they barely is- sued a proclamation, stating the law as it stood, and their determination to enforce it. And what follow- ed ? a direct violation of it. If any doubt was en- tertained as to that circumstance let them appeal to the trial. At that trial there Were some admirable specimens of the eloquence of the bar, and of the learn- ing and a uteness of the Judges, which every one must approve of, but the result was a distinct opinion that the letter of the law was in favour of Government.-— There was no ground for the motion : he must object to it: he must vote against it. The line which Go- vernment had taken was one of admonition. It had told them they were acting contrary to law ; and in doing so, it had given them the best advice, for he j knew nothing so unfavourable to their cause as the ] violation of positive law. Nor was he aware of any ' thing which could give their application to Parlia- j ment a more unfortunate or more unpersuasive com- plexion, than the circumstance of having trampled on a proclamation of the executive power, for the pur- pose of producing a step, injurious to the public tran- quility—( Hear, hear!)— If the House agreed to go into a Committee, tbey must b; prepared to say, not merely that the Catholic claim should be acceded to, but that this was a laudable act of theirs—( hear, hear t)— not merely that their cause was good, bat that their condact was becoming; not merely that they should be placed upon a footing with other sub- jects, and be entitled to all the benefits which their P rotestant brethren enjoyed, but that a Committee of the Prelates, the Nobility, the Laymen, and electors of the Catholics sitting in Ireland after the Union, was an admirable institution.— f Hear !)— But could they come to such a decision i Could they so far resist their knowledge of the law, and their wish for the fulfilment of that law, as not to condemn it, as not : o own that it ought to be stigmatized as unfit for any useful purpose, and only competent to the production of evil ?—( Hear, hear J— With respect to the ques- tion as it affected the great body of the people of Ire- land ( and those who knew him, knew how deeply he felt upon all subjects relating to them) he did not think this was the favourable moment of moderation in which it would be proper to decide upon it. It was not a question now, < ior had it ever been, merely for re- straining the religious opinions of individuals. The only point was, as he conceived, that every state had a right to restrain whatever was likely to be injurious to it, . and whatever restraints were necessary to the promotion •>/ this end were therefore justified.— The whole of the question went to the degree to which the existing restraints were necessary. He held that all such restraints were evils in themselves, and only to be justified upon a strong case of necessity.— All restraints on the subjects of a State were them- selves evils ; but the danger on the other side might : be greater than the evil of restraint; if so; let them ' hold to their restraints: but if not, neither justice, nor reason; nor policy nor law, nor the principles of ' any free constitution could authorise an usuipation so fla- grant. ( Hear, hen ! J He was aware tha » ^ lie re- straints of the Catholics had been represented else- where as positively good, not as guards of the sanc- tuary, but as the sanctu ary itself; not as protectors of the altar, but as the altar ; as blessings that should be defended at all expence. A Noble Earl had rightly stated that it was a mere question of State.— Let them on all sides consider it as such ; let them abate on one hand the pomp and pride of right, and on the other, the folly and fury of bigotry. Let them dispose themselves for liberal and enlightened views, and then decide whether the disabilities should be permitted to continue. In his opinion, the r suit of such a consideration, at the same time dispassion- tairily tfrey had removed many objections, but stili that deliberation was necessary, an 1 that tkoagh there Was no Popish successor, it was impossible t » forget the attempts Which were formerly made to introduce that religion into the state, and arbitrary power into the country. He agreed with the Noble Earl in general points, but he could not allow that the present was the time most favourable to the mea- sure. Many impressions existed in tire breasts of re- spectable men, which were justly encreas ' d by the late conduct df the Catholics^ ill violation of the law. It would be necessary to consider what securities should be taken in order to provide for their admission into the Constitution without danger. Preparatory to this step, they would themselves see the necessity of sub- mitting to the law, and after they had shewn a dispo- sition to obey its dictates, they might then present the petitions in a sober, quiet tone, not insisting on the claim of right, but addressing arguments to rea- son. Then they might come here, not to bow down the Government before them, bat- in a dutiful, sub- missive, and legal manner, to implore from that au- thority to which they submit ( ahd'to which it is t! e interest of the Catholics as well as Protestants to su- nlit, as the best security for their properties, their li- berties, and their lives) the privileges for which they are anxious. The Marquis of LANSDOWNE observed, that if the Noble Marquis had argued in the Cabinet the r-. r:; fu- ments which the House had just heard, and with is much ability, the crmynality of his colleagues In the conduct which they had pursued, was rendered doubly criminal. He most cordially agreed with the Noble Marquis in the statement, that tiie rights of the Ca- tholics depended only on the safety with which their claims could be ceded, and that the moment tire n - cessity of their exclusion from a participation in the privileges of their countrymen ceased, that imyment their lights to such a participation commenced. But still more cordially aid he agree with the Noble Mar- quis ( Wellesley) in his argument, that it was not only just and reasonable to admit the Catholics to an equal participation of rights the moment they could be so admitted with safety ; but that nothing could be more fatal to the interests of the empire at iarge than to abstain from doing so. A great change had of late taken place in the sentiments ot the p - opie ot both Ireland and England on the subject of the Car tholic claims. Even in England there was a{, prc e t a much stronger disposition than formerly ti admit those claims. In Ireland a still stronger disposition of that nature existed. Those very Protestants inf Ireland, who had entertained the most unfavourable view of the objects of the Catholics, were unable to resist the impression produced, by a more intimate knowledge of their viitues. It was a general and a growing wish, among the Protestants, that their Ca- tholic brethren sh mld be admitted to a participation of equ d rights. He trusted that while the Irish Pro' testants thus cast off all prejudices against the Catho- lics, the English Protestants would not remain blind to their value, nor contimic to refuse those advantages which would be derived, on communicating to the Catholics a warm interest in the welfare of the em- pire. The law, as it at present stood, did not ex- clude from the enjoyment of rights the abandoned and unprincipled Athiest, > r the ignorant and con- firmed bigot; but it excluded that honourable class of society, who, having renounced every doctrine dangerous to the stats, were too conscientious to re- nounce the religion of their forefathers. The Eail of WKJTMOIH AN'I> was against the mo- tion. The Earl of MOIRA observed, that the Noble ate and manly, would be not only that the concession Li Earl had himself fallen into the inconsistency of of their claims would not endanger us, but that it ! which he accused others. He had deprecated ad discussion on the snbjeil, and at the same time had entered on an elaborate detail of the present state of Ireland. The question the Noble Earl had referred to would likely come before them iu another shape, and till then he should decline any particular animadversions. The Noble Lord had asked what was the objeifl of the Motion ; but the Motion itself *' as sufficiently explicit. It was for a Committee to inquire into the state of Ireland ; and the Noble Lord's speech was a sufficient proof, if any proof was wanting, th;; t snch an inquiry was highly necessary. The state of Ireland was now such that they must meet it, and apply, if po- sible, an adequate remedy. Whatever the Noble L'> td might have said of the present tranquillity of Ire- land, the s'ate of that conntrv, he contended, could no long.= r be disguised. The question' must now be fairly met, and no man could foresee the consequences. The Noble Lord in the green rib- bon had not sufficiently distinguished bet ween na- tural and political rights. Wi. h resoeft to thu former there could be no doubt, and With resps^ l to the latter they had an equal claim, from the inferest common to both countries. Feeling our- selves to be Britons, and animated by a British spirit, we ask if we are to stand in a community of interest, or to be excluded for ev, • from the privileges enjoyed by the other sul jeils of the Empire?—( Hear, hear!)— He denied that the Catholics of Ireland had attempted to operate on the fears of this country. They had always ad- dressed the. Legislature in terms of humility, and expetfed from your liberality what ihey might claim from your justice. If their Lordship re- fused the Catholics claims, he wished to remind them under what ci'cuinstances tl-. ey did so. In- volved in an expensive and hazaidous war, they" had to oppose a force that was under tlio direc- tion of a man who was capable of availing him. self of all his resources, and wfco would eave n. » jj means unemployed of weakening and annoying \ us Was this a proper hour to throw away haif our strength, and to add to the resources of the enemy by weakening ourselves ?—( Hear, hear !)•— If « ver there was a time for union and coopera- tion at home, it was the present. Would they throw off the breast- plate at the ver" moment ic was necessary to enter the lists ? They who ex- cited the clamour against Ireland would them- selves be mastered by it, when it would no longer be time to apply a remedy. What danger could there be to the Church of England from granting the Catholic claims ? The Church of England did not stand in need of the arm of force to sup. {• Fpr < oqtinuation set Second Page.) P° r£ would benefit us in oar most important struggle, and afford us an additional security in Church and State. He would not undertake to say with what conditions or with what securities it would be neces- sary to surround this grant, but he wished that it was given ; he wished it, because he conceived that the refusal of it was the principle which held their dis- contents so firmly together, which exposed them to the deceptions of designing men, and drew off their attentions from the advantages of the Constitution.— he meant to state it as his opinion, that the re- strictions under which the Catholics laboured at the present moment, embodied the whole of their force against the existing establishment, and that those who were in the army and in the navy, fighting the battles of their country, would be drawn to that country by a more fond and fervent attachment, if they were ren- dered competent to all the rank, and thereby to all the glory, which their heroism and their patriotism might deserve. ( Hear, hear!) He knew there were persons who said that if these requests were granted, greater would be urged, and he was aware that if tltey were not to act upon what might be termed an open field, they would exercise their judgments to better effect than the cramping and difficult incumbrance of present circumstances. But the true Statesman- like way of looking at it was through this latter medium. Did the Roman Catholic possess n6 political power ? No person who knew Ireland could say that he did not; but should he not be possessed of more ?, It was indeed necessary. It was the only means of averting the danger to which we were exposed ; and was it contrary to the Constitution ? The Catholics were admitted into ' the service of the Crown, and if they distinguished themselves in it, could it be said to be unreasonable to wish for the station they had deserv- ed ? It was not unreasonable— it was cruel and monstrous to suppose it so. So far from being un- reasonable, it was tiie natural effect of'natural causes ; it was rational— it was right. What! was it mon- strons to aspire to represent that property by which they elected ? Could any man say that this was n vicious wish ? Could any man deny that it was the natural impulse of a great mind, and the proper fountain of all those actions that exalt the characters of individuals and of countries ?— If the State saw that there was any danger, no man would be more forward to protect it than he, even by the enactment of those restrictions which he allowed to be evils in themselves. He would acknowledge tl'^ t he was not satisfied, tivat because there was no. Popish suc- cessor-— that because certain tenets formerly ascribed to the religion were abjured- by the Universities, they should therefore, without farther deliberation, accede to their demands, and admit them . into the bosom of the Constitution.

It had always applied to the reason and good sense of the people, and was founded on this broad and permanent basis. No Church had ever bem permanent that s- owd on any other founda- tion. None of those statutes that disqualified ' h? Catholics, could tend to ; he security of the church, while they were a source of constant hostility and j discord. Religions freedom was a privilege we boasted of, and the Church E- tablishment had jJ originated in this sentiment. Let a Church, so admirable for its purity, and so well constituted, be superior to the short- lived support that violence and persecution ever afford. Let it not rest itself j| On the arm of civil power, or its fate assuredly •! will be the same as that of other churches, that \ have sunk under the powerful influence of reason p and inquiry. He deprecated all procrastination in the present circumstances. The question pressed itself on their Lordships most serious consideration. He did not wish to adopt any hasty measures; but it was necessary immediately to adopt the best tr, pans of sntisfy; r,£ claims that bad been so often and so reasonably repeated. Should they delay the necessary remedy, they had nothing to look forward to but the ruin of the British empire. He hoped therefore, whefl the crisis came, they would then have wisdom enough left to drop, ge- neralities ; and if they continued to refuse What was asked, to say in what way it was that, grant- ing, the Catholic demands wa » to prove injurious to the Church of England. I" wunid he neces- sary to prove, that what was required for the safe- ty i f the whule empire was unsafe for the Estab- lished Church. There were two descriptions of opponents to the Catho%*< claims. The one would nuke no concession ; the other thought ^ he pre- sent an improper tirpe. He wished to know from the latter what reason they had for farther delay. He observed, that the best way to remove the irritation and suspicion which was complained of", was to treat then) kindly. Shew that you have confidence in them, and they will place confidence in you. He compared the condufl of the preset. t Government of Ireland to that which was pursu- ed towards Americ. A similar infatuation now prevailed, and proved that we were untaught by experience, and uninstrii& ed by adversity. After exeking smelly and injustice, the next step was to punish those who domplained. This was the natar. l progress of oppression, the true logic of tyranny. Instead of a course so fatal, he urged their Lordships to be no longer milled by delu- sims, which prevented them from adopting that measure which could alone knit together the hearts Lord opposed the ^ j of a, 1,1, population of the empir, : that measure Lord EioiKiNE and the Earl decidedly for it. Lord BUCKINGHAMSHIRE said, if the measure were adopted at the present period, it would seem as if they took advantage of the indisposition of the King, to attack the present establishment of Church and State. Earl G:: EY said, it had been contended, that these • concessions would he dangerous to the established Church, and therefore contrary to the coronation oatlt. When did this new light breakupon the Noble Earl ( Buckinghamshire) ? If the coronation oath required t: iat all disqualification should be continued ; if it was Veally a f|) ecies of treason to enter upon the discussion of a subject where the oath of the sovereign stood in the way of any alteration, he would ask the Noble Earl how it was, that he himself had not only sup- ported, but as a Minister of the Crown, recommend- ed the removal of these very disqualifications. ( Hear, hear!) The Noble I iarl, as he understood him, said, that the coronation oath stood in the way of the re- moval of the Catholic qualifications. If it did, he again asked how the Noble Earl had resisted that ar- gument wlrrn the other disqualifying statutes were re- pealed ? We had now to conteftd with the whole power of France, which at present influenced all Eu- rope ; nav we may say that France is, in fact, all Eu- rope ; and when we are to expect such an active and powerful enemy on our own shores, and now when it was . n^ cess. lry to have all ranks of persons united, you are endeavouring to cast off One great pait of the popula- tion, conristmg of upwards of four millions. We were also on the eye of a war with America ; and yet this is the time when VOH sUall ' endeavour to widen the breach between the. Catholics and. the Protestants. A war with America coupled with the present state of things in Ireland, toi imd a fearful combination of such magnitude, as to make any sraiement too stiong for the pirpos? of drawing to it the most serious and close attention Of that House. Upon the subject of the Vein, he had expressly advised that no allusions to it should bo made, hnt that the Catholics should consent to such arrangements as might be safely con- k Ceded, and should be deemed necessary by the Go- ; • eminent. This he had advised, and he would now i pro further ; he would speak out and say, that though ; he thought an unreasonable prejudice had existed *\ with respect to the concessions of the- Veto, vet so ( much stress had been laid on it, and so much had been j " written on the subject, that he could not hope to pro- pose i'r with success, and so far from considering it as ai sine ( jua non, he now thought no longer ot men- t cning it. TFie Eail of LIVERPOOL said, as to the conduct of the Government in Ireland, it was the universal opi- nion of that House, that a convention, stu b as was Sitting in Ireland, ought not to be allowed or coun tenanced. A meeting which was to consist of Ca- tholic Noblemen, Cathole Prelates, and other des- criptions of persons to the amount of more . than 300 men, was such as he should have thought would have al n nv. d all thinking men. What could be the pur- pose for which such an assembly could be convened ? Had not the Catholics for marry years past been al- lowed to present petitions? How had those petitions been treated ? Refused, it was true ; but as long as the House was not intimidated, their petitions were received with all respect ; for though there was a power in the House, there had never been an instance in which it had been moved that a Catholic petition should be rejected. Under all the circumstances of the ca"", ' it would have been a base dereliction of the Irish Government nor to have acted as they did ; and the Statute Book and the law itself would hare been a mocki- n had they done. less". He could not, there- fore, sec from these circumstances any ground for goiitg into a Committee. < s Lord GKKNVIM. R rose at five o'clock in the worn- j iff, audV^ an by stating, that the moderation and hu- r. nlity of the Noble Earl's ( Liverpool) speech, fornix ed h decided contrast with that strong spirit of big- otry and intolerance which distinguished his entrance i to office, when the worst passions of the people were « .: cited, ^ nd the nation disgraced by the scandalous " No Popery" cry excited by himself and his collea- gues ; his moderation would then have done him cre- dit, but the Catholics, he believed, entertained a very just sense of his Lordship's kindness. During the the entire of his Administration, he did not ' think they had received one act of kindness. He ( Lord G.) accused them of the deepest malignity and ran- cour to that body. His Lordship then entered into an explanation of the terms of the Convention Act. and contended that the word " pretence" could nut be synonimous with " purpose," and appealed to the Chancellor, who in a bill of his had introduced both words. The bill was of the name iniport, and introduced by his Lordship in 1796. He concurred with Lord. Grey in stating, that he had never regarded the'Veto as a sine qua von. He had expressly said in his letter, that it was an arrangement to which he attached no great importance ; and from the moment he learned that that measure, instead of conciliating, , had produced i'iitation, he abandoned it. He deui- i crowded at an early hour, in consequence of it ed that by removing the disabilities which afreet the || u— -—- » — « —' v: u Catholics, any security would be taken from the Esta- ji Wished Church. On the contrary, he should- regard 1 the very measure proposed, the full concession of the j Catholic claims, to be Use highest security tliat*" cclild , W given to the Church Establishment of tlcf United i Kingdom. The question w as every'day btcoiti- j would give to the Protestant a secuiily, which he never could obtain by oppression, while it would ensure the attachment of the Catholic, by present- ly ing to him the charter of his emancipation.

A dispatch, of which the following Is an extract, has been this Hay rceeive-. l by the Karl of Liverpool, from Genera! Lord Viscount Wellington, dated Gallegos, Jan. 15. 1812. We have continued our operations against Ciudad Rodrigo since I addressed you on the 9th instant— We opened our fire from 22 pieces of ordnance in three batteries in the first parallel yesterday afternoon ; and we opened our approach to, and established our - selves in our second parallel, 150 yards from the place, last night. This measure has been facilitated by Lieutenant General Graham having surpi ised the enemy's detachment in the Convent or Santa Cruz,, close to the body of the place, on tile night of tiie 13th. The right of our approaches was protected and secured by this operation. Maj.- Geo. the Hon, C. Colville, who commands the 4th division in the ah. sence of the Hon. Lieut.- Gen. Cole, likewise attack- ed the enemy's post in the Convent of San Francisco, last night, and obtained possession of post, and of the other fortified posts in the suburb, where our troops are now lodged. Our left is protected and secured by this operation. Two pieces of cannon were taken in the Convent of San Francisco. Prepa rations to a certain- extent are making at Salamanca, for the movement of troops in this direction ; and I have reports, that troops were to be collected at Sala- manca on this day. We have, till now, had very fine weather, and the troops have suffered hut Uu| b from exposure to it- 1 enclose the return of casualties.

The Siatute therefore first J » cl< ir*^ r » nd enadls, " that all Re. '{• presentative Bodies, all Delegates for public mat- ters, are unlawful assemblies," and provides that even the pretence of petitioning, whether ttue or false, the most constitutional or specious of all purposes, shall not serve to cloak the proceeding. The statute then proceeds in the wise spirir of pre- caution to arrest the offence in. the v£ ry first steps [ j of its- march, and it enafts, that the primary or constituent meeting, the voting or aSing at such primary meeting— nay, even the publishing a no- tice of such intended primary meeting, shall he a high mis- demeanoiir ; and this, before it is possible to say what the conduft of the future eleiled as- sembly will be. In a word, the pretence of petition- ing forms no competent ingredient of this offence; i it is the construflion of constitution, and not the conduft or objrft of strch an assembly which the Statuteoiakes the criterion of its legality or illegali- ty. It ii not the province of the Bench to vindicate the Legislature, but it would be easy to shew, that there is- no hardship in this statute; it, restrains alike the Pro'. estant and the Catholic; it dues not controvert a ' ingle principle of the Constitution.'

The Court of King's Bench this day was much being understood that Mr. Kirwan would be brought up for judgment. That gentleman be- ing brought up accordingly, Judge Day address, ed him to the following effect ML Thomas Kirwar— You have been tried up- on an indictment found against you upon the Statute of the 33d of the King, commonly call- ing more pressing, ilnd could net be long delay- if cd the Convention Act, for having voted and ed. Their Lordships would soon have to. direfl ; acted in the Flection of Delegates to represent i . to it all their attention and all tmtftmi- [• the'Roinan Catholic inhabitants © f a certain dis. plight and condition, a5 when asserted at the glo. riou* Revolution, by the Bill of Rights. Thus that inestimable and unalienable privilege of a free people have been expressly secured alike to all the sefls of Ireland, whether Protestan.', Presbyterian, or Catholic, in the same purity and perfection in which it is enjoyed by our tellow- ssbjefli of Eng- land— and, for myself, I own I do not desire to nv; ve in a wider sphere of civil and political 11- b- rty than tlia: high- minded and intelligent people are contented to enjoy. " In England, where a clear conception and a noble j. dlousy of their righ's and privileges are known to prrs • the - tfVj'. e mass of the people in their wilde< t excesses of freedom, assemblies < f this description arc never thought of— these con- ventions and congresses, and other assemblies for- mally elcfted to represent trreat bodies, are exclu- sively of Ir ish growth, and have always been plain- ly calculated to overawe the P„ rliamrnr, to con- trol its deliberative faculty, anei to brave and brow- | beat the Government. Such was the Dungatv non Convention in 1793— such the Volunteer Con- vention of 1782^- such the Catholic C invention assembled at Kilkenny in 161- 2, composed pre. cisely of the same materials as the present Catho- lic Convention— of Peers and Prelate;, and of County and C'ty reoresenta'ives, who commenc- ed thtir labours with solemn professions of hu- mility and moderation ; and ended in forming themselves into a Parliament and assumjng the funclions of a Legislature. Such assemblies as they are, the representatives of d - contentment, be- come, by an easy and natural transition, the mi- nisters of sedition. I am persuaded, from the weil- ktiown persons! character of some leading individuals of the C^ nvantion, that they have en. tered into it with the most innocent and even vir- tuous views, and tha" they would be the last to haibonr any design against our Constitution— that gtori-. us Constitution, which every individual of them has sworn to protefl in Church and State.— But it is in the nature of man, when he once passes the limits of the iaw, to forget soon his first motive of action, and often to launch into excesses and extravagancies, at the hare mention of which, his heart at fir » c would have recoiled wiih horror. Turbulent and lotld- congyed politicians, whose trade is declam ^ tio. fii an 1 whose m rive is not re- ligion but ambition, soon command and domineer at such assembli-' s : the light and worthless, like chaffj rise to the suurCica, and « O< HI acquire an AIR cendancy, while ' hose of intrinsic weight and rling value, sink t< » the bottom and disappear. " Under thsse circnm.; Unces the Government!, in dicharge of its prime and most imperious trust, have stepped out seasonably, and with a laudable energy, to arresr the impending danger, but with an energy not more laudable and efficient than the moderation and conciliatory spirit which they have since dispia/ ed. The Attorney- C- eneral hav- ing obtained upon two several occasions the de- liberate construction of the Court, upon the Statute in question, feels himself at liberty to indulge the well knowu mildness of his natur. e, and the mag- nanimous moderation of his Government, and has entered a Noli Prosequi upon the several other depending cases; he has done this too, unclogged by any disparaging terms or conditions, confiding implicitly in the loyalty and good sense of the C. i- tholic Convention, that they will bow with becom- ing and respectful submission to the law, as now expounded ; expounded, it i* true, by a fallible judicature, but still the established law of the land, as thus expounded, until the decision shall be re- reversed by the dernier resort. Before this the first judicial construction of that statute, it was but fair to prefume, that the Catholic body acted in mere error and not nndcr a wilful and perverse misconstruction of a law, upon which some able and virtuous men had entertained a conscicntious difference of opinion, and therefore, every ante- 1 cedent violation, it was a wise conciliatory and BELFAST COURSE OF EXCHANGE, & c, Fat.

London, Monday Night, Feb. 3. REPORTED SURRENDER OF CIUDAD RODRIGO. By the Hermes schooner, which ha* reached the om- porr from Corunna, we have Diaries to the 28 th, and Letters to the 29th ult. ( Wednesday last). In the former it is stated positively that Ciudtd liodtigo is taken. Acccptable as the in- telligence would be, we cannot hastily give credit to it, and particularly because Government have made w communication to that effedl, although dispatches have been received by this opportunity from Sir II. Douglas. The form in which, through another channel, we have received this report is, that four days after the batteries were opened, a prafticable breach was effected, and that on the next day, the 19ch, the place was taken by storm. The loss on the side of the English is given at 1200 in killed and wounded, and the pri- soners, consisting of the garrison remaining after the coriflifl, computed at 12,50 men. Our letters both of the 27th and 28th of last month, mention the complete evaflaation of Astu- rias, as well as the tov. as. of Gijon andOviedo, by the French under Bonnet. Whether thty retreat- ed to the East towards Santandar, or to the South towards Astorga, is not mentioned. It is pro- bable that on account of the inenrsion of Lord Wellington, this assistance would be wanted in the south of Leon. SECOND EDITION.

Lord MORPETH rose to call the attention of the House to a question, which he conceived to be, p.* this moment, of the most vital import- ante to the security, the happiness, and the ex- istence of the British Empire. It was in the re- collection cf the House, he said, that a notice had been given some time shice, by a Noble Friend of his, of his intention to bring forward a " motion ( upon this subject; unfortunately, however, al- | though that notice was postponed on a farmer !; : di- rptrte in which he the question of Catholic Emancipation can be di cussed, the Laws and Constitution, which this assembly has invaded, must be vindicated. It is !; Government of that c not through the w.' unded sides of the Constitution, or over the trampled laws » -. f the land, that they can hope tn gain a passage fo the Temple of Li- berty. It is not by an intemperate course, calcu- lated to ercite the alarm in every rcfleftim; mind, that they can hope to astuage the prejudiced— to strengthen their friends— or to persuade the Le- gislature that their claims are either expedient or justified. If that brilliant combination of elo- quence, good- humour, and sound sense, which was poured out upon the Wbjeft ; if that, fascinating display of every thing that an highly gifted head, and an amiable heairt could suggest, has jailed to conciliate the Catholic body, or to open their eves j to their true interests, the right road which they i should pursue, and to their best friends, why then j it is in vain to od', r thern adrnoni' ion, though one | rose f > r that purpose from the dsad. But I do i not so despair of them. The C > urt ent- rtains the j most sanguine hope that this Art of Parliament, j which had never before been awakened into aft ion j will he allowed to resume its long slumber in the j Statute- book:, and in that hope have resolved to infliifl upon you'a nominal punishment ; feeling it, however, to. be their duty to express their most marked reprobation of certain slanderous praflict* in the conrse of your defence, but particularly of your affidavit; which, though circulated in conge- nial Papers with all the triumph of truth, was found to be so false and scurrilous as to be ordered off the fiie, atrd not allowed to pollute the records of the Court. " The sentence of the Court is, that yo « , Tho. irras Kirwan, be fined one mark, and discharged." — net rts Catholic p- iiMil !!•!>;>— a sincerely regretted to seethe • mn'ry eitgag--?, riasrmcii as their opposition semed aho to fee d: reifted, not only against ihe general sens - fif ihe great bulk of the population, but that of the gteat l. rndtd inte- rest of Ireland, Protestant as well as Catholic, fc was » carcely necessary for him now to repeat the. ground « f thisr di- pirtc, or to trespass cn the Hc ti - e by any detail of its progress. The claims of too Catholic Gentry for admission to heir share in tha privileges of tliar C'msfittiti in, to whicft ibegiea : bulk ot the lessir order had long been admitted, was the unhappy grotHivf wo; k of -. he present c h4 test. The petitions of the OathoKc G+ ntry, and >&" » of landed proper ty, had been s> frequently sub- mitted to that IlbiW, and so frcq- l nrly and s • ably and amply discussed by the legislature, that it was scarcely possible toxller any new aigr.. inent, or cast any new light. upo; i the question. Still, however, there were those who, notv., tb- 4 s'anding the palpable and urgent neceuity K>( b.'- nishing every cause of dptre. vic divisi- ui in Ir< « land, andof uniting the hand> and hearts of eytry class of subjefls for our common defence, yet were still inexorably opposed to. tie s rlii V, ilu - » ,. icitatidn% of the Catholics, upon grounds of ohjefliin which had been over and over again refuted, and which he had hoped would long- since have given to the wher policy of uniting the affoSicns of ail the people, and of depriving ihe enemy of every expedition which he might have formed tiponoW domestic divisions, and the consequent weakness which might be ejpecled to flow therefrom.— It had been argued that ihe concessions cLitried bf the Catholics could net be acceded to v. iii.^ i: danger to a Protestant Church and Constitution » it had been urged, lhat the ultimate objed of il ar Caiholics was, to crtfl a Popish hierarchy upon the ruins of the Protestants. But he contended, that no feature of such a purpose had ever ap- peared either in the loyalty of the Catholics, of Ireland, now for more than a century, nor did they seek more than that which must be the na- tural wish of every loyal native strbj £ f in tha realm, and which had been fairly earned by illeir irreproachable conduit as a people. It was unnecessary, at this time of day, to go over the topics of the Council of Trent, and the Council of Lateran, or the prejudiced argument* that had bsen formed on suppositious doctrines of the Catholic Church. These doctrines were mast amply disclaimed and refuted, and out- dli mca thi » moment with Catholic States, e. nJ c.- ii • nintarjr exertions in their defence, were in further refuta- tion of such notions. It had heen s tid that a Catho- lic Convention was sitting in Ireland, in defiance of the Law and the Government; but di- t should be no argument with hint against the injustice! and oppression which led to such Conven ion.— It had been said also that no strength could accrue to this country from granting the Cathe ' c claims, which he did not already possess, aixi that a Catholic soldiery would feel no additional zeal by being commanded by Catholics any more than by Protestants. But they knew li'ile of human nature who could make such an unfounded a set- toon, or be insensible to the ardour which nru t inspire any set of men, in finding their religious faith was no longer a barrier against their promo- tion to the highest commands. The Noble Loi 1 went over a variety of other topics, and conclud- ed by moving tor a commit ee, to take into con- sideration the present state of Ireland. The Marquis of Tavistock Seconded the niot; on. Mr. Canning, Lord Geo. Grcnville, Mr. Her- bert, Sir A.

PAPER CIRCULATING MEDIUM. To He EDITOR of tie BELFAST CHRONICLE. Si'V— It seems to be the opinion of men who take a deep and penetrating review of ihe passing events of the present times, that at no period did this country stand in such an awful situation as jt now docs, both from the strength and activity of its eremics from without, and from the fearful apprehensions entertained of what the end of our paper currency may be: And whilst this class of men think, that Legislative interference, in- stead of propping- the tottering fabric, will o ly tend to 1 asren its destruction, there are a vast number wh > think that Government should do something- Should it not interfere, sad experience i shews, that the tenant will be completely at the j mercy and capricc ol the landlord, who may drain him to the last tenpenny; and the debtor at the mercy of the creditor, in respect to discount, Oil the amount of old contracts— and, should bank nn'cs be made a legal tender, from the experience of France and America before us; the worst of con- sequences may be predicted. It is thought that a paper currency, in any country, must, in the end, yield to the influence of the precious metals, in which there is intrinsic value ; and that, consequently, our paper cur- rency must jome day depreciate, and become at last of no value at all. The first symptoms of this will appear in its relative depreciation in the pufceha'e of provisions: so soon as this will be- come evident, the downfall of bank notes will not be long protraced— fearing a still farther depreciation, no person of common sense will hold a note an hour in his possession, if he can avoid it, hut will either pay off his debts, or pur- chase something of intrinsic, value, being per- suaded, that the holder of notes, will, in the end, be the looser; this will cause an increase of de- mand for all articles, that will cause an increas. ing rise in prices, until at last bank notes may be gradually depreciated to 99 per cent. In such a state cf things, if bank notes are con stitu . ed a legal tender in rent, the tenanl! will get, say 80 per cent, in nominal amount, for his goods at market, above what he formerly got, and will pay the landlord only the nominal amount stated in his lease, whilst the landlord must pay 80 per cent, for his goods more than he formerly paid Thus, in proportion as the tenant will get rich, the landed proprietor will get poor; and from this cause the former may become the purchaser of the estate of the latter. To protect the tenant, and prevent a transfer of landed property, I humbly conceive that a hint from a very ingenious correspondent ol yours, might be so far acted upon, as to enable the land- lord to enjoy his jusr rights, acquired either by inheritance or by purchase, and the tenant to en- joy his bargain. Respecting this contemplated paper depretia. tion, it has already been observed, that it will make its appearance in the rise of the pike of provisions; and bread and butchers' meat, will of course be a kind of standard by which the price of every other article will be guided. My plan, then, is this— Say that, in the course of these ten years pa6t, the povind of butchcrs' meat averaged 6d. let this ( except in years of scarcity) be taken as a stand- ing maximum. Should it be properly ascertained that a paper depreciation will cause it to rise per l'o. or 2- § per cent, the tenant should pay so much discount. Should it rise \ d. per lb. he should pay 5 per cent, discount, and so in pro- portion to its progressive rise. This plan might be extended to the payment of old contracts, & c.; but it may be asked, who are to be the judges and regulators of such a plan ?— In answer, I only beg leave to suggest, that a committee should be appointed in Dublin for that purpose, to whom some gentleman in the Re- venue in every principal market town, should make a periodical report of the prices of pro- visions: from these reports, the Committee should publish a standard of discount, to be in force for a stated period, at the end of which it might be renewed or altered, according to circumstances. If Government interferes on some such plan as this, it is my humble opinion it would be doing an act of justice to all parties, which is what is sincerely wished for by, Sir, your very humble servant, IMPARTIAL. Ballymoney, January 17- COMMERCIALLY INTERESTING. The following Letter has been received by the Gentlemen composing the Committee of National Purposes, in Deny, hom J. JEPSON ODDY, Esq. dated Corf/ a, 27 th Dec. I Sit. Gixnsiitii— I cannot omit troubling you, by an op- portunity, with an account of the small progress ! have made towards eff- cting the general prosperity of Ireland, and those individuals engaged in various branches of indus- try, by the external demand wkich must, from various causes, hereafter, lie certain and permanent. That Ireland htis more extensive resources within herself and on her Coasts than any other quarter of Europe, is in- disputable; Her local situation, which, from the old politi- cal and commercial relations, kept her in the back ground, in the pi& nre of Europe, will, in the new state of both, make her the most prominent of the United Kingdoms, particularly when the produce and the manufacture of Ire- land will supply the place of the European northern parts of of the Continent, and when her local situation i= so contigu- ously placed near the Peninsula of Europe and the British transatlantic possessions. This communication will chiefly relate to Portugal, be- ing the first effort of my external investigation for mar- kets, resulting from the industry and your efforts to promote it at home. I trust the information will be as satisfactory and stimulating tw you as it is gratifying to myself, when you see the encouraging prospers, by the fa& s concealed in Portugal, and unknown in Ireland, particularly favour- able to your fisheries, to your agriculture, and to your ma- nufa& ure. « The singular concurrence of the laws atid habits of the people of Portugal are wonderfully and almost incredi- bly adapted for the encouragement of the British Fisheries; 10 per cent, by law, is paid on til racso fish, in kind too, daily brought in for domestic, consumption ; and this being rigidly enforced with the claims, or, indeed, enforced de- mands, for conscience' sake of the religious orders, generally leaves the poor fisherman only two- thirds, or three- quarters to reward his industry and adventure. Bread and fish are the constant articles of food, nearly of the kingdom, . exclu- sively of the 40 days of leut— so that the consumpron of 3,000,000 of people may be nearly guessed, and what is highly favourable to the encouragement and support of the Irish Fishery, is, that only 15 per cent, duty on importation into Portugal will be paid for British caught and cured, whilst all others must pay oo per cent. Salt, in return, can he had at a moderate rare. Upon these important suhje& s I shall dwell more hereafter. The Agriculture of Ireland has equal encouragement in Portugal. The importation of Grain into 1/ isbon alene is 5- Gths of what is imported into the whole kingdom, and which does not produce more thanlietwixt three and four months' consumption out of the whole year. By official documents I have collected, resujring from the last 20 years, the fates and consumption at l. ishon, upon the average aggregate of the whole of that period, for one single day only, is Of Wheat 5H2 quaiters. Barley iS9 Maise 114 . Rye 14 900 Winchester quarters per day. and of Flour daily 177 barrels. Butter will be all article of yearly- encreaseel consumption. In the encouragement to the Linen Manufacture, the fails will speak the most grateful language. AH Linens imported into Portugal, of Irish and British manufacture, now pay a duty of only 15 per cent, upon the invoice, or a fixed value, whilst from ail other quarters 30 per cent, must be paid ; and what is still more astonishing, is, that though Linens were beginning to be manufactured in Portugal, that Govern- ment lias placed a duty of 30 per cent, on the importation of the Flax, a bounty indeed for Irish industry. I shall, there- fore, at present, confine myself entirely to. portugal for such Linens as will find an immediate sale lor domestic consump- tion, and which will be found described in my European Com- ment, via. 1 Choluts tinbleacbed; 2 Carcrilio bleached and properly assorted, or 150 & ills of 90- J; ells also, or GCO of 1 OJ; 3 Bretagne bleached and properly assorted, assorted class, middle, and fine ; 4 Bleichtucher or Hessians ; 5 Osnabruclis, bl - ached and unbleached, properly made up. These are the chief German linens which Ireland may- am. cessfully imitate for the consumption of Portugal, To these may be added two other sOrts of still more expensive consumption ; and, in order to go upon solid and prudent ground* in a new opening, I have purchased each article from the actual chief dealers, that e;; ch piece and package may be made up, precisely- in the same manner and appearance, to accommodate the prejudice of the Consumer; and should your and other apcietes be disposed to have samples, in piece, of these manufactures, the Sjine can he had; with additional and minute information and interesting details to secure them quick and profitable sales as well as a permanent demand here- after. The delays on my tour, with contrary winds, and the in- conceivable difficulties, in a f reign country, to attain that corredt information relating to such importaut point-, will be considered the best apology of my being longer absent than I expefled; but, ! hope, on that account the Parliamentary measures will not be delayed to another Session— because, being in the most interesting - nut in which afl the external obje& s we have in view wiil be lost, or setured, and my ef- forts now are sedulously direeSted to the latter, 1 am persuad- ed I shall be enabled, in a very short period, to amiouRce to you some very gratifying and interesting intelligence, with certain data, upon which individuals interested in those points will be governed, tending thereby to the general prosperity of Ireland in' particlar, than which, nothing will afford me greater satisfaction, and equally to the esteem and friendship of those gentlemen combining themselves to promote ali these plijeils — I have the honour to be, with every senti- ment of consideration, Sirs, your faithful and devoted hum- bie servant.

' Die following interesting though mournful narrative of the less of the Ilero find her brave crow, is written by an eye- witness on hoard the Grgpshopper. On the 18th of December, wc sailed from Winijo Sound, in company with H. M « ships Hero, Egeiia, ami Prince William aimed ship, with a convoy of 120 sail The Egeria and Prince William, with the greatest part of the convoy, separated from us, in the tremendous we » ther we had shortly after leaving the Sleeve ; and on 23d ult. we found ouiselves in com- pany with the Hero, and about iS sail, mostly tran- sports. At half- past eleven, Captain Newman made signal to come within hail; when he told us, as he conceived, we were near about the Silver Pi- tts, he should steer S. W. aftet noon, which was done ; and ! j at the close of the day, the nigliNsignul was made to alter course to port two points. At this time only , four of the convoy were in sij; ht, and they were short- ly lost sight of in the heavy sqaull of snow hnd sleet. At half- past three the hands were turned up, the ship being in broken water ; we found we were on a sand bank, the pilot's imagining it tq be Smith's Ivnoll.— The Captain instantly ordered the brig to be steered S. S. E. thinking to get out to- sea ; but she conti- nued striking so hard, that we had almost given her up for lost, when suddenly, we fell into three fathoms water; upon which the Captain caused an anchor to be let go, when we perceived the Hero again ( as we then thought) also at anchor, though she fired guns and. burnt blue lights : but, alas ! when the day broke, we had the mortification of witnessing a most horrible scene— the Hero was dismasted, and on her larboard beap'i- ends, with her head to the N. E. about a mile from us, upon the Haeck's Sand, as we then feiund we were inside of it, off the Texei Island ; the ships' company were all crowded together on the poop and forecastle. As soon as <| Jy- light had appi- nred, she hoisted a flag of truce and filed a gun, which we re- peated, and very shortly after saw a lugger, two brigs, and several small vessels, plying out of the Texel to our assistance; but owing to the flood tide having made, and the wind blowing a gale at N. N. W. the lugger was only able to come within two or three miles of us by two o'clock in the afternoon. In the mean time we hoisted out our boats,, and made an at- tempt to g| t near the Hero, but the surf was so high, that it was all ineffectual, and we were under the cruel necessity of seeing so many of our brave countrymen perishing, without being able to fender any assistance. The Grasshopper at til? same time was constantly striking very hard, . though every thing had been thrown over board to lighten her, except the guns, upon which it was feared she would have bilged.— The master was then sent to sound in every direction, for a passige to make her escape by, ( a| thougn I have since found, out, that ail escape was totally im- possible) ; but quarter k* » s threte, and two fathoms and an half, were the only soundings we could meet with. The Captain, therefore, with the opinion of the officers, agreed, that we had no chance of saving ourselves, but by surrendering to the enemy, who were at this time coming to our assistance, and that of the Hero, from whose wreck not one soul has been saved, I observed, likewise, about five miles to the northward of us, a vessel on shore, with her foremast standing, and another some distance from her, both of which I took to be tire transports that were under our convoy. The commanding officer here has since informed us, that the telegraph has reported that eight or t \ n vessels were wrecked upon the coast to the northward, on the 23 d, arid had shared the fate of the poor Hero » A transport, called the Archimedes, beat over the H. iecks ,1s well as ourselves, with the loss of her rudder ; but has since been wrecked ; the crew are saved. At close of day we cut the cable, , and ran for the port in view : when we approached j the lugger, which was by this time anchored, she sent a pilot to us, who took us into the Texel, where we surrendered to the Dutch squadron, under the command of Admiial de Winter, who I must in jus- tice say, has behaved to us in the most humane - and attentive manner. They used every means in their power to save the Hero ; but the badness of the wea- ther rendered it totally impossible." MISCELLANEOUS. Cf. oxMKL, JAN. 29.— Last Friday night the houre ; of one Brown, a respectable farmer at Clonoulty, was j broken into, and his daughter, a girl of about twenty : years of age, forcibly carried away, by a gang of ruf- • fians. They brought her to the wood of Oappagb, i where they remained that night, and having kept her, • going from place to place in secrecy, till Sunday ; night, they then brought her to Scarborough wood where they took up their residence in the house of i one Burke, W- he- re she remained till Monday, when she made her escape through a window. She then made all speed across the country to the house of Michael Egan, Esq. where S. Moore, Esq. was on a visit.
