VE said, he rose for the purpose of calling, their attention to the subject of the Orders in Council, and to the state of the trade of the country as it arose from these Orders. He was actuat- ed by the hope of inducing that House to endeavour to arrest the course of these calamities, which arose from these impolitic and deleterious measures. In discussing this important question, they would have to consider, first, its effect upon the enemy, whose vi- gour and resources it was avowedly projected to par- alyse ; 2dly, its effect upon that remaining neutral power, whose interests were, of all others, the most importantly connected with our own— what its effects were upon the internal commerce, maauhictures. and resources of this country, all win :, h . tljey were trium- phantly told it was calculated to promote"; and lastly, its effects with respect to the system of- our maritime power and superiority, which, above all others, they were told it was calculated to vindicate and uphold.— The principle involved in this last consideration, it was found, in former times, politic and expedient oc- casionally to depart fr6rti and relax; but he conld shew, that this salutary principle had never been so greatly or unnecessarily relaxed as by the very authors of this boasted system. He would, first of all, describe what these Orders were, with respect to the blockade established in May, 1806, and the Order in Council of January, 1807. He would remark, that the in- tention of those who proposed these particular mea- sures, was that the blockade should he an effectual one ; but with respect to that Order in Council, it could be only considered as enforced upon paper, as since the annexation of Hamburgh and Holland to France, its enforcement was impracticable. The orders, how- ever, to which he had most particulary to call their attention, were those issued in Nov. 18() 7. These professed to place all the potts of the enemy in a state of blockade, He meant not to consider what effect they had with respect to coffee- house consumption in France, or upon the medicinal supply of her hospitals, but he meant to consider their political effects upon the strength and resources of the enemy— whether they curtailed the extent of its dominions, or diminish- ed its military resources ? What other powers were induced by these Orders to act any other part than that of complete subserviency to Francc ? As far as these Orders were intended, they completely failed in their effect. Those who held out hopes that the Conti- nent was to be coerced through their efficacy, found it themselves expedient, at the end nf 18 months, to depart from the principle upon whifh they professed to act. In Oct. 1809, they thou proper to open the ports of the North of Europe..* The actual ope- ration of their measures was to be ; v an inverse ratio of what was so confidently insisted •• i. Even with regard to the ports of France • Holland, 18 months had not elapsed before the- gj^ nciple was bro- ken in upon through the medium ol licences. It was then to be considered what the effect of the system, combined with tlie measure of licensing, had upon neutral nations ; and in this view, he would par- ticularly advert to the United States. By the Orders in Council; those were prevented from trading with any of the ports of France ; they were told, that on the principles of belligerent policy, such a prohibition was justifiable, and that the object was to retort upon France the evils of its own injustice. He deprecated the effects of such a system with respect to the U. States, and dwelt upon the injurious effect of author- | ising a commercial intercourse between France, and j Stated dependant on her, and refusing it to America, f who was totally independent of its power. The com- mercial evils which resulted were equally evident and extensive. Five years since, manufactures to the amount of twelve millions were annually transmitted to America. Why was such a lucrative and desirable traffic interrupted ? Was it to raise up a manufactur- ing spirit in that great Continent, hitherto chiefly de- voted to agricultural pursuits ? Within the short space of four years, the diminution of our manufac- tured exports was incredible. The U. States were driven to manufacture, and they now exported a consi- derable quantity of cottons to the Baltic and to Trieste. The original evils of the Orders he considered as ag- gravated by the expedient of licensing ; and the num- ber of these were progressively increased from 3 to 1G, 000 licenses in the course of a year.— The far greater proportion of them were granted to foreign seamen, for the purpose of importing colonial pro- duce into France, and taking her manufactures in re- turn. How infinitely preferable would it b? to ex- tend this indulgence to a neutral independent of the enemy, as was the case with America I The House and the country should contemplate with cheerful confidence, the growing prosperity of a great com- mercial power at the other side of the Atlantic, com- pletely independent of France. It was not a ground of national boast on the part of Ministers, that the trade flowing into Brest, Nantz, Sr the Charante, would have been American, but for their Orders hi Council. Were not the vessels of those countries subservient to France ? Would not the sailors be used in the naval service of France ? This system of li- censing could not be carried on but at the expense ot morality, and commercial honour, for which this coun- try wa's so long famed. He deprecated a system which tended to infuse a fraudulent and corrupt spi- rit into commercial transactions. A sentiment simi- lar to this seemed to be enteitained even by the Judge of the Court of Admiralty himself; in illustration of which, the Noble Marquis referred to ^ ome seniiments expressed by that learned Magistrate.— A system so characterised seemed to be the policy of Government; its commercial evils may, were there not a variety of other proofs, be known by the circumstance that at present there were at least double the number of bank- ruptcies there were four or five years since. Upon the general subject of the exports, it would be difficult, from a view of the official statement, to form any ac- curate estimate, as numerous articles were entered at the custom- house which eventually paid no duty.— He wished, however, to call their attention to some accounts which Were that day laid on the table. From these sortie idea might be gathered as to the injurious tendency of the Orders in Council. They would find that upon the three quarters ending 10th October, an actual defalcation cif 15 millions in the xports as compared with the preceding year, and this. Were the colonial produce to be calculated, would amount to twenty- one millions in the whole year.—- He thought it his duty to declare his sentiments, that : if the Orders were repealed, the only remaining bar to our return to a state of amity with the U. States would be cemoved, and ail the beneficial, the invaluable results of the restoration to that state of things would . be induced, and all the deplorable calamities resulting | from a state of alienation or hostility would be avoid- ! ed !• What should they go to'war fo'r ? Was it for the purpose* of destroying a trade which, though it ! must distress America, would, in the sequel, be rtlpre j severely felt by this country I What'would be the j consequences of converting 140,000 seamen, and two millions of capit • , into a predatory marine, with re- spect to British commerce ? He would detain their j, Lordships no longer, but would conclude by m ; n, i , . " That a Select Committee of Lords be appointed for ' tlu purpose oftali'ng into consideration the effects pro- ? duced by the Orders in Council, the granting of licen- ces, and other points connected therewith." ! The question being, put, Earl BAXHURST said, the Noble Marquis had ex patiated not a little upon tbe subject of the Orders in Council. Yet, after , all he had heard, he was at a loss what the orders were which he conceived should i be repealed ? Was it the order of January 18o7, \ which was issued by those with whom the Noble M * himself acted ? But what was there in that very or- | der which did not apply to Holland and to France, 1 as well as the others ? He should consider that \ vere j this order repealed, they would not advance a step I towards a reconciliation with America. The States j considered it as a direct violation of their rights as | those of the following November. Without that re- I peal, the commerce of this country must remain un- i der the system of American exclusion, and to the disabilities of the non- importation art. However, it was a matter of serious consideration in what state the trade of Britain and Ireland would be placed, were i both the orders repealed. Much stress was laid on 1 the effects of the operation of the measure of granting |' licenses ; but with respect to the measure in the num- j tiers issued, that must > roceed from an increased com- j mercial intercourse, and from the numbers of neutral j residents in this country, who apply for such licenses. But he must resist the idea, that the country would, in its commercial relations, be placed in the same state, by the repeal of the Orders ia Council, as it stood in, before the adoption of these measures. Neither was it the Orders in Council that occasioned the increas- ed number of licenses; other ci'cumstances rendered it necessary. In what other way could trade be car- ried on ? Tile exclusion of British ships from the I far greater number of the ports of iurope was noto- ! rious. The export in British bottoms must neces- i sarilv be diminished. He also differed from the No- ble M. in his idea, that no satisfactory accounts were ' to be collected from the generality of commercial do- I enments And before Parliament. The accounts pre- jj sented that day afforded much satisfactory illustration. D A comparative statement of the number of ships,' and y for S. America and other parts. Comparing, thetl,- the trade of America and the Indies together, trade had increased, notwithstanding the interruption to- our commerce; They might rate the trade for the whole consumption of the United States at not less than four millions. If they took the three last years in comparison with the three preceding, they would find that we had expended more in the last three years by ten millions, and our export market to'Ca- nada was nearly doubled. The Noble Lord ou; ht to, have recollected that from 1st March lodS^ to March 1810, an embargo had existed on all Our trade, notwithstanding which; it flourished from 1st Mav, 1810 to 1811. Our trade was open and vet diminished. Who could say, after looking to tiv?-,-- facts, that our commercial embarrassments proceeded from the Orders in Council? In 1309, the trade of the Baltic was considerable, which gave encourage* ment to our merchants to embark in the trade sir. " of 700 vess - is. The French had by that time entered Stralsund, and the vessels haring proceeded from port to port, were for the greater part captured, mak- i ing a loss to the country of dg^ t or nine millions.— - Sj As far as the trade t) f the Baltic wertt, things were in the sanle state as if the Orders had not existed.— After some further observations, irt which he repre- sented the speculations to South America as another caufj of our commercial embarrassments ; he con- cluded by declaring himself against the motion. Lord HOLLAND begged to call on the House to recollect that tiiis motion was for a Committee to inquire into the Orders in Council, and their effect upon tbe trade of the country. To Whatever administration it Was owing, they were now in a situation in which it was necessary to adopt inquiry. He thought with his Noble Friend that that situa- tion was breught about by the Orders in Council, but whe- the subject. The Ord r of 1807, he would allow, should be thcr that was the cise or not, it was necessary to inquire ir. fo inquired into as well ar. the others, and if found to bu a, eb- iloxious, should be repealed But it h. i. l been said, the Or- der was made during the administration of his Noble - Friend, as ii' that Order was the foundation of the whole. lit,' re- membered, however, that that order was the subject of mo- tions front the opposite side, by whom it was contended tt. at niore vigorous measures should be resorted to. Mr. Perce* vaUiimsetfhad actually stigmatized it as being but a com non war measure, and nut adopting retaliation with sufficient spi- rit. The real ground of tlie motion was the present v tion of the country.— He knew tli. it Ministers coir!' " rotliK- e . j documents to answer any case, but hp would loo);, n • t » their documents, but to the country. Why did not. the No- ble Lord, wiiohad made so flattering a statement ef our con- dition, persuade the inhabitants of Liverpool, Net'iti'lmin, & c. to its truth ? \ Vrhy did he hot introduce it at the end of every bankrupt list, for the purpose of shewing the flourish- ing state of the country ? The solitary measure in wliioh he agreed with the Noble Lord, was the war in the Peninsula. Ill hi 4 opinion, a war with America would be the loss of that Peninsula. Lord WESTAionnr. AKD allowed that it was the in- terest of lbe country to avojd a war witfi America, and maini tained that this country hed uniformly acted with the Utmost Wbrffe iran - e. Tiie quarrel, such as it was, originated with ( the Noble Lords, and not with his Majesty's present Go- vernment, who of course were not responsible for the com- mcrci. il warfare that had ensued. Lord LAUDERDALE defended his Noble Friend , • c , ^ . . , rt who ha- 1 brought forward the motion, from the imnutatiort the amount of the tonnage, was upon the table. _ It iS! nJeinS ignorant of the nature of the O-. d. rs in Council— would be seen, that in 18o6, when the trade of the I country was at an unprecedented great extent, the number of seamen employed was 183,476. In 1310,, when an exclusion from the Baltic and the greater part of Europe obtained, the numbers were ' 210,000, forming an increase of more than 30,000 seamen He was aware it would- be objected, this was a state- ment of repeated voyages, but it was these that con- stituted the real balances, and not the bare numbers of the ships engaged.— No slight stress was laid by the Noble Marquis for not granting to Americans the preference of licenses from this country, inasmuch as it tended to promote the interest of foreign seamen ; hut it should be recollected that these foreign seamen were included among the American crews'.— Recurring to a point he had alluded to in the early part of his speech, his Loidship glanced at what was conceived to be a species of immorality with respect to the granting of licences. This arose from the Un- avoidable wording of those documents, so as to make it appear the vessels were destined to some other ports than those they really were: but where ( under the unavoidable circumstances of the case) was the im- morality of this ? At the time when the French de- cree created much alarm in the mercantile world, such measures were suggested as were deemed most likely to afford the desired facilities to trade ; and in conse- uence of repeated applications, the Board of Trade, q taking into consideration the commerce of the coun- try, and the apprehensions then enteitained that the decrees would be rigidly followed up, it was thought proper to issue an order tending to give protection to enemy's property, if such property were destined to this country.— The Board took into their considera- tion the embarrassments of our export trade, in con- sequence of the French decrees, and an alteration was made in the licences. The objectionable part of the system was adopted in the former administration, at a time when these decrees were not acted on to the same extent as at present. Was it extraordinary, that un- der encreased difficulties, the present Ministry should have recourse to the same means ? The system upon which they acted was to reduce France to this ex- tremity, either that she should injure herself by a rigid adherence to her decrees, or benefit us by any relaxa- tion in the course - she had marked out for her com- mercial policy. The Noble Lord had entered into a alculation to prove the decline of the customs within a certain period, but the manner in which he proceed- ed was, after taking the deficiency of the three last quarters, to infer that of the succeeding. The whole of this defalcation he ascribed to the Orders in- Coun- cil, completely overlooking the circumstance of the ex- istence of these Orders in 18o9and 1810, the two years in which our trade had flourished most remarkably. It had been argued that the Baltic trade was prosper- ous, to which the Orders in Council did not apply ;, but that all patts of our trade to which they did : p- ly were unprosperous, and the inference was, that the Orders were the cause of our conimefciil distresses. This, upon investigation, would be found to be too hastily taken up. After all that was S id respecting the immorality produced by the granting of licenses, he saw nothing in it which should induce the mer chant to do a dishonourable act; the efiect of it was to protect the British merchant from any temptation to those acts of immorality which were charged up on it as consequences. The greater portion of the exports to America were not for the home consump- tion of the U. States, but were a great part of them I But even rtere that imputation just, conic' there be a strong- er argument against the continuance of those Orders than that such men as liis Noble Friend could not accurately dis- cover their import ? He contended that the looseness of their interpretation, and the cdntiriual changes to which thcr Strere Subject, gave to the Merchants of London, a treat ad- vantage over the Merchants of the out- ports., 1 : ie prospe- rity ol' the commerce of the country liad bi- en talked of!— Prosperity !— It was a pr. scarify accompanied by number- less phenomena. It was accompanied by an unprecedented list of bankrupts. It vas accompanied by an unprecedented distress anuing the manufacturers. It was accompanied bv riii unprecedent change in the wages of the low er orders. - Into these phenomena, attendant on the alleged prosperity of commerce, it was fitting, in his oeinicn, that a Committee should inquire. With respect to tile returns on the table, of exports and imports, they were in no tf- ise to be depended upon. Circumstances of a peculiar, and indeed of a contra- dictor}' nature, had conspired to swell them. In the ex- ports, for instance, all goods exported without duty, might be entered to any amount. Thus, an export of only 50/. itl value, might be entered as worth 5000/. Added in this, commercial speculation had proceeded to such an extent that it was a well known fact, that goods to a considerable amount had been transported from this country, particularly to Heli- goland, at which place no market being found for them, they were actually returned, thus fruitlessly swelling the list of experts and imports, and sold by auction fwr half the orw ginal price at which they had been purchased from the manu- facturers. This was far from that legitimate prosperity of commerce which resulted troiti actual consumption. I. ord Ross opposed ti e motion, as one of those humiliating propositions to which he could novo;- consent. At one time their Lordships were called upon to prostrate the Constitution at the feet of the Catholic Convention ; at another, td prostfate the maritime rights of the country at the feet of America; at another, to prostrate the c, ue, e of the Peninsula at the feet of Buonaparte; ar. rl, to revoke tha Orders in Couticil, while the decrees ef the enemy, by which they were called for, remained in full force. To destroy our commerce appeared to lie the fixed determination of Buona- parte, and as fixed ought to be our determination < o coun- teract hiiii. Biicnapcrt- 1 had declared to his maritime towns, that England must be humbled a£ any expense. To accede to the motion would indeed be going a great, way towards humbling her. To accede to the motion would be still more to depress the manufactures of Britain, autt to . give to those of" France, by the repeal of the Orders in Council, that sti- mulus which the exchange of colonial piodnce ( through the medium of America) for tlie manufactures of France must inevitably occasion. I40rd SIDMOOTH was anxious to take his full shnrn of the responsibility of the Older in Council of 1807, which was modelled - on that of 1758, and founded on the principle that neutrals ought not to be permitted to carry on that trade during war, whii h they wott'd not be permitted to carry en during peace. I ' c objee'ed to the Order of 7th Nov. 1 S08, because it inte'diclerl neutral trti le except on the tie " : dir< » f condition tba; reMral vessels should in the lirst inslieiee touch at British ports, and be there subject to a duty of the nature of a contiiUition. Happily the evils attendant tip* u it were done away by Ihe Order of April, 1809, which su i- . stituted blockade. Legitimate, however, as he thought the system of blockade, he confessed that he could never attach I to it so much importance as had been supposed to belong to it. In bis opinion the system of blockade would proceed much more successfully were the system to trade by Keens abandoned. There were great abuses in that latter system. Besides, it was completely inconsistent with the princii. Vti oil which the Orders were founded, namely, to inflict pri i- tionon the eneniy. There was one consideration Mil., a had great weight in inducing him to vote against the pro- position of tbe Noble Lord. He would not assert the {. « . neral doctrine, that there should be no parliamentary in- terference while a negeciatiin was pending with anotl er power; but under the circumstances of the pending ncpe ciations with America, he vas decidedly hostile to any l'ar liamentary interference.

The Marquis of LANSOOWNF. made nn animated reply to the arguments of the Noble Lords who had opposed lis motion. Lord FITZWTLUAM felt it his duty to state, that there - were petititirms preparing by the manufacturers of i| Yorkshire, complaining of tbe distresses under which they laboured, attributing those distresses in ft creat measure to the pernicious operations of the Orders in Council, and pray- ing that Parliament would address the Prinre Regent, to cause those orders to be repealed. He conld assure their Lordships that the distress of tbe manufacturing districts of Yorkshire, and particularly the clothing districts, were ex- treme. What had happened at Nottingham was but too , veil kno n, and it ought not to excite surprise if similar ,|| disturbances were to take place in Yorkshire. Lord GMSNVir. LF. did not rise to add a single word | to the arguments which had lteen so ably urged in support « > f the motion, but merely to say, that whatever might be the decision of their Lordshfps, be was persuaded that - when the petitions which his Noble Friend stated to be in prepara- tion were laid on the table, not a mrm would be found to oppose a deliberate inquiry into the nature and effect of thos* measures in which the evils so justly complained of by the petitioners, wore by them said to flrigiuatu.

AMERICA The following is the extrafl of a letter received fiom New- York, dated Feb. 3:— " General Dearborn has been appointed a Major- General jj in our army; this does not please the people. There, is a contemplated change, when Madison's time is out, for it is very certain he will not be re- eleded again. It is said Gen. Armstrong will take the War Department. Dewett Clinton will be President. Mr. Munroe uill go out, his successor is not named. Gallatin, our Secretary of the Treasury, is } » ) ing down hill as fast as po- tihle ; his Budget will, no doubt, lie the laughing- stock of all foreign nation*, as well « s this. It is said that Dr. Euston, who now holds the War Depart- ment, will hav- the Colle^ loiship of Boston, lately filled by our new Commander- in- Chief, Gen. Dearborn. It is the decided opinion here, that we shall commence hostilities against Great Britain, unless you repeal these Orders in Council by the 1st of May. Indeed, itnless you do this, I can see no possible way of avoiding a war. Upwards ot 40 nil of ve- seis lljft this port yesterday for different port6 of Exrope. We lay before our readers the following letter which has within these few days been received from at) Am- erican Gentleman at Paris, by a merchant of London : " No condemnation of America vessels have, for jj E ) me time past, taken place at the Court of Prizes, nn- . der the Berlin and Milan Decrees. This however requires somr* explanatioru The Emperor has created a new Ministry for the direction specially of comrfierce and manufactures. The Director General of the Cus- toms has been appointed Minister, and bis powers are very extensive. Affairs which formerly appertained to the Bureau of the Minister of the Interior, are now under the direction of the Count de Sussy ( this new Minister), and the Court of Prizes is reduced almost to a simple Zero, it being little more than a mere Court of Report to him. H>- makes the final report, which is submitted to the Emperor in his Council of Commerce, and as that may be favourable Or unfavour- able, h. s Majesty generally decides. You will at once perceive what a controuling power is thus vested in the Count de Sussy, and it " may be imagined how much more facile if will be now for the captors to negocikte than with the whole Members of a Court. When confiscation is ordered, it is in v. iin to attempt to learn the points under which it has taken plaee— the fact only is announced to the unfortunate sufferer. " Several vessels, taken in the Balt'c, ( part of them ] oaded « uith the produce only of the soil of the Unit- ed States) were confiscated some months sinre— it was Sapposed under the allegation, that they could not en- ter the Baltic except under British convoy, so that taey had, in some manner, relation with England.— The Captains and Supercargoes were left, however, to guess at the cause of their confiscation. Foi my own part, I consider it as founded on the decided deter- mination ot Napolean to prevent all kind of trade to and fioni Prussia and Russia. Whence else can pro- ceed the great movements that have taken place for for some months past, and are still going on, of French J troops towards the North of Europe, but to shut the j Baltic; and it the Emperor Alexander does not ef- fectually adhere to the Continental System, Napoleon Xtill of course declare war against hiin. " Do not consider this as the dream of a person dazzled with the militaiv splendour which enciicles this astoinshing man.

The next accounts from Portugal are expeCfed with much anxiety, as they will probably com- municate the result of an important secret expe- > dition against the enemy, which is said to have been entrusted to the gallant General HILL.— Should a Packet by Express reach us in time, we shall stop the Press, and lay before our Readers any information it may contain on the subjeCh Some late accounts from Sweden speak of the occupation of Stralsund as an aft of open viola- tion by the French, and calculate on war as the consequence of such aggression ; while other let- ters state, that the Swedish Government are satis- fied that the French entered their territories in a friendly manner. It is added, however, that dis- patches on the subjeCt have been sent to London and Paris, the answer to which will determine what measures shall be adopted. The debate in the House of Lords on the Or- ders in Council, will be Found highly interesting. On this important suhjefl, we understand, several Petitions to the Legislature are preparing in Eng- land. A counte'r Petition, however, of the Manu- facturers of Staffordshire, as will be seen in the last page, has also been forwarded. The Marquis of LAMSDOWN'S motion for the appointment of a Seleft Committee, was negatived by a majority of 64. ^ The Dublin Patriot contains the following ex- tracts From the London Papers of Monday, which have not reached us fu the ordinary course: London, Monday, March 2. Saturday being the last Saturday of the month, all the Physic a>> s attended the Queen's Council jjj at Windsor. The Archbishop of Canterbury, j' Earl Winchel ea, and the Earl of Aylesford, i formed the Council. The report of the Physi- ; cians was, that though his Majesty now enjoyed I uniformly the refreshment of sleep for a longer i period each day than in the earlier pe iod of his jjj complaint, yet no abatement of the mental debt- jj sions appeared, a circumstance that served to di- minish the hopes of his recovery. He has slept, jj THF. REGENT. The Timlin Evening Post communicates the f 1 lowing circumstances from private sources of in- formation : — " His Grace the Duke of Bedford requested an audiepce of the Prince Reijent, in order to communicate to h's Royal Highness his feelings on the present posture, of public aff,-. irs; and, par- ticularly, as beatjng upon certain promises made by his Grace, in ihe name of an Illustrious Person- age, to the Catholics of Ireland. The interview has taken place, and happy are we to anno nee to the Empire, that the result has been such as to shed a fresh lustre on the character of his Royal High- ness, and to impart to the people of Ireland heart- felt satisfaction. In the course r. f this interest- ing and highly important inteiview, the Regent evinced the kindest disposition towards Ireland— declared his opinion on the propriety or Catholic Emancipation to be unchanged and unchange- able; and, as a further proof oT his Royal feel- ings in favour of the Catholics, he mentioned to his Grace of Bedford,, that on sending the Blut Ribbon to the Lord Lieutenant of Iteland, it had been stated in a letter, addressed to the Duke ot Richmond, that one reason, among others, for conferring upon him so distinguished an honour, was the moderate line of conduCt adopted towards Mr. Kirwan, subsequent to hit conviction.'" LORD MOIRA. It had been thought that our distinguished Countryman, the Earl of Moira, could not pos- sibly add a new grace to a character so greatly illustrious as his has ever been. It appears how- ever, that the more delicate, the more difficult and embarrassing the crisis, the higher is his Lordship likely to raise himself in public estima- tion. We can state from authority, that the Re- gent felt so much chagrined at Lord Moira's re- fusal to accept the Blue Ribbon, that he sent Mr. Sheridan to him a second time, offering him the Ribbon, with a carte blanche as to his future poli tics. Our admirable Countryman replied, he • would be ashamed to look at himself in the glass, if un- der the present Administration, tie accepted the honour I I— Dub. E. Post.

Busby, m;- neral surveyors, to contain upwards of 100 square feet, about 2 § inches thick, and quite smooth on both sides. The same quarry is capable of pro- j ducing several equally large, and excellent slate and building stones. The Brevet that will come out in the month of April next, will extend to a great portion of the Colonels of 1810, and include the whole of the Lieut..

An accident threatening serious consequences, occurred on Sunday evening on board a sloop at Lapp? s island at Coik, bound for Belfast; thiough Dflie inattention fire reached the hold, in which were ninety puncheons of whiskey ; some small portion of the spirits caught the flame, and pro, duced an alarm; fortunately it was high water, and by prompt assistance the vessel was scuttled, and with her cargo, preserved from conflagration, which wojj^ d, in all probability also have commu- nicated to the several ships near her. It is hoped that this occurrence will prove a salutary caution ! in futute to masters of vessels, how they leave a ! cargo of this description open to such risk.

About eijrht days after she j sailed she experienced tile he;; vy gale in which the SalJanha frigate Was lost, sp ung her bowsprit, and received some otheirdamage; notwithstanding, through the perseverance ftf the Captain and crew, she made the land, off Sandy Hook, within eight miles of New York harbour, in T- Jdvys, when she was caught in a dreadful snow storiM* y.' iic". rendered it impassible for a pilot to board he}, and which drove her on siioie on Lonjj Island,/ jibout 30 miles from the Hook.— We are happy, iroWever, to say, tha. the passengers and crew, with jjiieir. luggage, are all safe. The whole of the passengers were sent to New York by Messrs. James and Wm.

This popular piece t;. ts been twice repeated since our last publiettion, and it is bui justice to say, that the various characters are well sustained hy Talbot, Thompson, KnowL s, Faulkner, Mrs. Fulton, Mrs. Burgess, & c. & c. The heroine ( Erina) is rendered most interesting by M. s Full n ; and Mr. Tajbot's O'Donoghue is highly deat. T ng of commendation. His delivery of the following lines, on beholding Erina, was much admired ; it affords a specimen of the dialogue: In Beauty*-- presence, War forgets to bend His brow, her smile nukes his rough aspect smooth, Her voice to si ence lulls his clanging horn, An I charms bis hnrsh ; md stormy breast to peace; But if she ur^ te his rage to serve her cause.

Talbot, seemingly without an effort, gave great effeCl to the following:— Oh ! look at tyranny In all tb « terrors, of its lawless rage, How poor a thing it is; while conscious Truth, And virtuous Courage, fallen beneath its feet, Can smile it into nothing And on being led forth to execution, he thus addresses Termagnus: Lead on—. Yet hear the doom I prophecy, Howe' « r your course may prosper, you shall live Accurst. When ' conque< t shall have sated you — You shall duke off your wedded Iriends, who clung Unto your wavering fortune; fear shall be Your only guard, and you shall purchase from The hireling's hand, each minute of your life.

( i^- ' I! J. ON , 1, CAE BELFAST COMMERCIAL CHRONICLE. TO THE EDITOR, tfc. Sis— I am sick of hearing of improvements in manufactures and agriculture. We are absolutely ruined by improvements. We get machines and horses to do the work of men, and hen men are thrown out'of employ. We manufafhrre every thing so easily, and so cheaply, that our markets are overstocked, and the manufafhirer gets no profit. We get islands as cheap as dirt, and then it is not worth while to grow sugar and coffee. Every thin? now is so improved, that we have no more work for handicraftsmen and labourers; and if we go on for some years in this way, we shall have nothing at all to do. Wheels and springs, and levels and pullies, will be the only creatures employed in our workshops and msmufaftures, * nd men and women may sit down and look at them. I really belicvp that the reveries of a fool, ish fellow some years ago, will be realized. He was of opinion that improvement would go on so fast towards what he called perfectibility, that a pleugh would do it* work without the impulse of man or horse— that we might exist without sleep— and acquire such improvementi in health, as to hav. no occasion to die. Really, Sir, one would thin : that this blessed « ra is approaching— and alreadv we are so completely mechanical in all our opera, tions, that I should not wonder if our increased popula'ion should be attributed to steam !— I am, Sir, youi's, AN ENEMY TO IMPROVEMENT. CURIOUS CORRESPONDENCE. The following curious letters are extrafted from the Bury Paper:— " To the Editor of the Bury Paper. « SIR— As Mr. Benjafield has been pleased to publish a part of one of the two letters which un- der the direflion of my brother Magistrates, I read to them at the last Quarter Sessions, I conceive it to be incumbent upon ire to request ynu to inseit in your next paper, the whole of both these letters; of which, by permission of Lord Moira and Capt. Cocksedge, and at Mr. Benjafield's express desire, I send him authenticated copies. « Firt, ham, Feb. 21. " 3. Ord." " London, Jan. 16, 1812. « < SIR— A disagreeable circumstance lays me under the necessity of soliciting permission to tres- pass upon you with this letter. " Some time ago Mr, Benjafield ( then perfect- ly unknown to me), applied to me, to ascertain the point wheibet or not he received an annuity from the Princ • of Wales. He said he had been charged with having extorted an annuity from his Royal Highness for tbe suppression of attacks which he was about to bring forward ; an impu- tation which he negatived with the most earnest professions, advancing in proof of his denial , the E'sertion, that he never had any annuity from the Prince. I considered investigation of this matter to be involved in that engagement of anomalous lervices, which I, with others of the Council of his Royal Highness, had spontaneously entered into, when, to prevent the expence to the public of any establishment for the Prince Regent during the year of restrictions, we desired that we might officiate as his State Household. I made due in- quiry accordingly ; but, as the transaction to which this referred, was of a date earlier than that at vhich I began to have any knowledge of the Prince's affairs, there was nothing to lead me to any other question than, whether Mr. Benjafield had at any time received an allowance or annuity from the Prince ? The answer was, that no record or trace of such allowance or annuity appeared. I was naturally satisfied with this statement, be- cause it was what I had expefled, both from Mr. Benjafield's assertion to me, and from my having always supposed Wl- ltje the purchaser of the shares in the Morning Post on a speculation of his own. [ On this ground I confidently furnished Mr. Ben- jafield with my testimony against the accusation under which he laboured. Sub equent informa- tions have gnided me to proof, that Mr. Benjafield has been receiving ( and is still in the receipt of an annuity, which is essentially, though not in abso- lute form), what he has been charged with having obtained.— He receives from Mr. Tattersall, an annuity, which is paid to the latter by the Com- missioners for liquidating the Prince's debt. I have, therefore, written t6 Mr. Benjafield, to say that I must have back a testimonial, by which I unwillingly vouch for what is in substance not t, ue ; but as he told me that his objefl was to ex- hibit that testimonial to his biothei Magistrates, and as I have reason to believe he has shown it widely, it is incumbent on me by this explanation to prevent mv name's contributing further to a misunderstanding of the case. " That Mr. Benjsfield's name was not on any schedule or list as " a creditor of the Prince, is in- disputable. It is equally certain that the Prince did not know of any pecuniary transaftion with Mr. Benjafield, the business with Weltje having clearly been managed at the time by persons in- discreetly officious, though at ' he Prince's expence. From these fafls candour exafls the construction, that Mr. Benjafield has afted upon the presump. tion that the persons ostensibly bound to him were those with whom the transaction really rested.—. While I admit this, I cannot withhold my censure upon the manner in which I have become so un- pleasantly implicated. I am entitled to say, that Mr. Benjafield's want of caution in making those assertions, which unavoidably led to my error, without his having previously satisfied himself on circumstances involving obvious doubt, ought to give him serious regret. f " I have the honour, Sir, to be, " Your very obedient and humble servant, " MOIRA." " Rev. Dr. Ord, Chairman of the Sessions, Bury." " Bury St. Edmunds, Jan. 20 " REV. SIR— Having received information that Lord Moira has addressed a letter to you in your official capacity as Chairman of the Sessions, for the purpose of recalling, through a public chan- nel, a letter from Mr. Benjafield, which he had obtained from his Lordship, in order to rebut the assertion which I have made in the proceedings in a Chancery suit, with respeCt to the annuity which he enjoys being derived from an high per- sonage, and with tbe privity of Mr. Benjafield. " I feel it becomes me to state , to ymurself and the Bench, that in consequence of Mr. Benjafield's having obtained and shown this letter to this t » wn and the neighbourhood, at exculpating him from the charge, I held myself called upon more mi- nutely to investigate and colled the evidence upon which I considered the circumstance to rest. " I began the inquiry by resorting to the exe- cutors of the late Mr. Tattersall, arid their Solici- tor ( a channel to which Mr. Benjafield did not direCt his Lordship, and yet apparently the most likely to decide the faCt, of the annuity being merely the debt of Tattersal only, or of some other and higher personage), and from thence I carried it to those who were immediately concern- ed in the conduCt of the transaction. In the course of this inquiry it resulted, that in consequence of the paragraphs in the Morning Post, relative to a High Personage and a certain untitled Lady.— Mr. Benjafield, who had the sole conduCt of the Paper, was threatened to be prosecuted ; that find- ing he was not to be alarmed, it bccame necessary to buy him out ; that he was accordingly bought out; and that Mr. Benjafield knew it was a tran- saction with a High Personage, and the terms hav- ing been considered as grossly exorbitant, such High Personage was particularly spoken to on the subject, but desired that they should be ac- ceded to. " That Mr. Benjafield has been lately nego- ciating for the exchange of his annuity for a place • nder Government, with the gentlemen, who, on the part of such High Personage, gave a bond in vthe penalty of J€ 1O, 0OO to Tattersall, to indem- nify him ; that places had been offered to him, but not accepted ; this fact alone carries convic- tion with it. " It was also ascertained from one of the Exe- cutors of the late Mr. Tattersall, and from his Solicitor, that upon being informed that, as Exe- cutors, they must deduCt the Property- Tax, he said he should complain to a higher power. " The above is the general result of the inquiry which I have instituted ; I will not trouble you with a further detail at the moment, but I reserve to myself the adoption of such further publication of'the affair, or of such measures respeiling it, as circumstances may require. " I remain, Rev. Sir, your most obedient and humble servant, " M. T. COCKSEDGE." " To the Rev. Dr. Ord, Chairmart of the General Quarter Session for the Divi- sion of Bury St. Edmunds." Th? Declaration proceeds to a detail of the ty- rannical and unfair conduct of the Regency and tha Cortes, successively, towards the Spanish Co- lonies, and tints concludes: — " Impelled by these justifiable reasons, which are but a faint outline of our sufferings, and by those of policy and nature, which so imperiously called upon us for this separation, we, the Repre- sentatives of ihe good people of the Province rtf C. trthagena of the Indies, with their full consent and approbation, and convinced of the integrity of our intention, and the favour of an impartial world, solemnly declare, in the face of the uni- verse, that the Province of Carthagena of the In- dies, is from this day a free, sovereign, and inde- pendent State— that it is disenthralled from all submission, vassalage, and obedience, and ab- solved from every bond of whatever nature that formerly attached it to the throne of Spain— that, as such, absolute, free, and independent, it may do whatever any other free and independent na- tion can.

STAFFORDSHIRE MANUFACTURERS. ORDERS IN COUNCIL. A letter of which the following is a copy, has been transmitted from the Staffordshire potteries to Mr. Perceval, and a similar one to Lord Gran- ville Leveson Gower, one of the Representatives in Parliament for the County- of Stafford. To the Right Hon. Spencer Perceval, & c. Feb. 21, 1842. Si it— We the undersigned Manufacturers of Porcelaine and Earthenware, in Staffordshire, observing that notice has been taken in the House of Commons of a petition from the Po teries to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, contain- ing, as we conceive, an exaggerated statement of 1 the distresses and situation of these manufactories, I and praying for a repeal or modification of the Orders in Council ; and being apprehensive that | frftm St. Andero, and the prisoners, amongst others, were serving on board the said privateer. They represented themselves to be Americans ; but some suspicions arose, and they were taken into, custody, as traitors. They then acknowledg- ed themselves to be Englishmen, and volunteered to serve their country, but their offer was rejected. The prisoners gave in a long written defence, wherein they stared themselves to have suffered much in French prison, and their only motive in getting on board the privateer, was to seek an op. portunity of returning to their native country.— They had no intention of aiding and assisting tbe enemy ; but, on the contrary, they had engaged with other Englishmen and Americans to over- power the crew of the privateer on the first occa- sion, and to lodge her in a British port. To sub- stantiate this defence, Kennedy, an Ameri- can, and another witness were called. These wit- nesses were serving on board the privateer when she was taken. Their testimony corroborated the defence, that the prisoners had formed a plan to get possession of the privateer, by overpowering the crew ; bur, on being cross- examined, it turned out that two of them ( Griffiths and Corbett), had also served in the Napoleon privateer. The Judges then observed, that the distresses of the prisoners was no excuse for serving the enemy. Guilty— Death. IV. Jemrnott was indiCted for stealing on board the ship Maria, dollars to the amount of Seventy Thousand Pounds, the property of various mer- chants. To go through the evidence at length in this case, would occupy the greater part of our impression. It appeared in evidence that the pri- soner, in conjunction with others, had bargained for a vessel called the Maria, and they succeeded in the purchase for £ 700, purporting " to have afled in the capacity of agents for Lazarus and Cohen, two Jews. After the purchase of the ves- sel, it was announced by advertisement at Lloyd's, that she was bound for Pernambucco, at the Bra- zils. A person named De Sylva was appointed Captain ; and, as might have been espeifted, she was laden with the dollars in question, and other goods, to a very considerable amount. Instead of proceeding on her voyage to the Brazils, she was steered to a port in the West Indies, where the Maria was transformed into the Columbus, of New- York, by being painted from black to yellow. The prisoner was a kind of supercargo on the voyage; and at Cuba the dsllar chests were broken open, and carried off in a schooner, under the di- rection of the prisoner and others. The ship was afterwards taken into another port and sold. In defence, the prisoner stated himself to have been merely a servant in the employ of the owners, and did not knoiv that the cargo was misapplied when delivered on board the schooner. It, how- ever, turned out from various circumstances, that the prisoner was privy to the whole fraud.— Pearkes, an officer at Bow- street, produced some letters found on the prisoner to his wife, and which proved that he was even in want of a dollar when he sailed on board the Maria, but that on his return, it was proved that he was worth 6000/. and he was getting heavy bills discounted, and depositing large sums in bankers' hands.— The prisoner was found Guilty— Death, Sir William Scott immediately passed sentence of death, in the most awful and impressive man- ner, observing, that it was no more than charity to inform the prisoner, that he had little reason to eXpeS mercy on this side the grave. The other four prisoners received sentence of death also, but the Judge gave them some hopes of mercy. Jernmott is a tall man, of most gentlemanly appearance; he did not seem much affeCted at his fate. The Grand Jury, in the course of the day, found a true bill of indictment against the Marquis of Sligo, for a misdemeanor. LONDON FASHIONS.
