TWO SHARES m the BELFAST INSUR- ANCE COMPANY to be Sold. 708) Belfast, March 9. FROM THE MONrTElTR, FRENCH SENATUS CONSULTUM. j " B it what is the grand and principal elTeJl of this new institution ? The safety of the interior and public security. " Hitherto the safety of the interior of e m, ires pr > vided for by arnjies, win became offen- sive bt defensive, according to the circumstance of the war and the chances of success. " But the security was neither entire nor dur. able. The fear of a reverse weakened it, bad suc- cess might annihilate it, and what a Situation that people in whose comforts and labours wee every moment inte runted by anxiety and fear? " Let us refur to history, and we will see how frequently weak Governments could only satisfy heir subjects by imprudently pointing out the number of their troops and their military disposi- tions, of their political arrangements, and being obliged to give way by dangerous and absurd dispositions of their forces, to the ridiculous ideas which the want of s-' curity suggested, joined to false notions respecting the true elements of a good defence. " The proje4 of the Senatus Consulte which is presented to you, Senators, prevents for ever al! these misfortunes. " Then should even all the aftive armies quit the frontiers and proceed to an immense distance to hurl the Imperial thunder, the immense iticlo- sure of the Empire would present numerous de- fenders, which could be replaced by still more nu- merous defenders, and the French Empire con- sidered ( if I may be allowed so to express myself,) as an immense citadel placed in the middle of the world, would shew its natural garrison in a na- tional guard regularly organized, unking to- the constancy and instruction of old veterans alt the vigour of a youthful army. " This is what the Hero ha* thought 6: to do to redder our frontiers inviolable; to tranquility minds the most prompt to conceive alarms; to guard the public security against ail the attempts of false r. eal from ignorance or perfidy. " This is what the Father of bis People has done; for this great benefit but trifling sacrifice* are required. " The Cohorts of the first ban will be renewed with one- sixth each year ; the young Frenchmen who constitute a part of it will know the exaft pe- riod when they will return to their paternal roofs, and be restored to their s'feftions, their labours, their habits; they will eajoy the fruit of their de- votion. " Arrived at the age in which nrdour is united to strength, they will find in their military exer- cises salutary games and agreeable relaxations, rather than severe duties and painful occupations. " They wil! not be strangers to any of the ad- vantages which the old phalanxes - of Nipoleon enjoy. " Let us now proceed, Senators, to examine the second title. " Yon have heard the Minister of Foreign Af- fairs and that for War expose the frank, firm, and moderate policy of the Emperor. " European commerce must be freed fronj th ® shameful yoke wished to be imposed upon it. " Nature demands this; the most solerhn trea- ties prescribe it. " The imperious interests of the State demand ft. " Already does the enemy of Continental Inde- pendence suffer in his island, a part of those evils with which he Wished to inundate the world. " He has sworn everlasting war, " Let a formidable Power render abortive this attempt against humanity. " Let all the aftive armies of the Empire be ready to march to whatever place they may bs called by the greatest of heroes. " Let 100 cohorts of the first ban answer to tha country for its frontiers, strong places, its ports, and its arsenals. " Let 100,000 brave men, chosen from among those of the first ban, join ihe standards of glory. " Here we again find the same paternal solici- tude of the Monarch, and same foresight of th* Great Caprain. « " What relates to the successively renewing of that part of the first ban, which wiil be placed at the disposition of the Minister of War, is fixed with care, and all Frenchmen of the first tan, wh » shall have married anterior to the publication of the Senatus Consulte, shall remain in thtrbosoni of his young family, and constitute pare of th » second ban. " The assembling of a part of the first ban will allow the Conscripts destined to aug nent or corn- plete the aftive armies, to be longer exercised at their depots, and every thing has been calculated in such a manner, that at the least signal a nu- merous army can be promptly coilefted, and with facility march towards all the points menaced. " Ia order to be able better to judge of ail th£ advantages of the institution proposed to you, preser. t to yourselves, Senators, ail the irreguLr appeals from the National Guard which yod hate witnessed. Let those' of our colleagues, whose military renown and confidence ot' the Emperor hive frequently placed at the head of these N i- ! tional Guards, hastily collefted, how mtlch thty p have . deplored the inevitable disorders and forced t and truly painful marches— of dispositions whiah time did not permit to properly digest ; of sacri- fices almost inevitable— of losses in inert, Ammu- nition, and money. " If you call to- your recollection the circum- stance so honourable for several departments of the Empire, when British pride split upon the- banks ot the Scheldt, can you suppose that if at ! that epoch, at, which you txpressed in so solemn. | a manner the devotion of the Fiench People to, } wards the Emperor ; the Institution which F. ar. ee ! is going to receive from its tutelary genius frl- i bsen esublisueci, England would have ciared t• « conceive the hope of the most trifling- success) « Your Commission has, therefore, the honour of unanimously proposing the adoption of. the St>, natus CoiisUite which has been pr? s » nt und with Turbary and Lime- stone, in a good country, and contiguous to the best Linen Markets.

OV Prepared Stramonium and Oxyxtel ( as dire4fed by Sur- geon Fisher) has been found a most invaluable remedy in the above complaints— The fume of the dried Herb, thus torrefied, effectually prevents the Asthmatic fit, and the Oxymel, by allaying the irritation in the Lungs, strengthen- ing and correcting the habit, has succeeded in cases of Con- sumption that appeared almost hopeless.

Mr. CROFTON, almost despairing of relief, was recommended a trial of Dr. James', Powders, which he took for a short time, according to the directions; thu pain that he had so long suffered began daily to decrease, and the Me- dicine finally relieved him entirely of his malady. He now finds that upon the slightest return, occasioned by catching cold, Dr. ' James's Analeptic Pitts have the desired effi'dt>— Should » hey consider the above statement of any use to their Establishment, he begs that it nray be made public— J ami's Fctsiicr is sold by their appointment, by Mr, SAM.

INRMOM, Monday, March 23. We understand that. the Tremendous and Poic- iers, who were left by the Diana in pursuit of the- enemy, have returned to their station off Brest, having lost sight of the enemy in thick weather the second day of chace. We hear that the Tremendous ( which our readers will recollect is the ship mentioned some time since in the House of Commons as having been built on a new construction), so much outsailed the enemy, that had the Poictiers been equallv fast, they would probably have been able to have harrassed the enemy, and at least impeded his progress, till they should have been joined by some of the ether ships. , Yesterday, Government received dispatches from Sweden, brought by Major O'to Forcelles, of the Swedish Guard1-. They are of consider- able importance, and relate we hear, not only to a direct and avowed negoci-> tion with this coun- try, for the adjustment of all difference, but for pecuniary support and assistance in the event of continued hostilities on the part of France. The squadron for the Baltic will sail with all possible speed. A letter from Windsor, dated on Saturday, says, " But little variation has taken place in the King's tnalady during the last week. His bodily health continues extremely well, and he eats very heirtily. He, frequently amuses himself with touching the kpys of a harpsichord." Two vessels from Havre, and one From Ostend' have arrived in the Thames, on board of which were 500 bales of silk. The trade with Fr ance is quite brisk. A vast number of French licences to trade whh England, have been issued bv the French Governm rt. It is supposed that Bona- parte, wish ng to recruit his finances, admits this influx of goods, as well as the exports, to take place. Coffee, of an ordinary duality, was selliner in Holstein, last month, at 36s. per lb. and refined sugar at 12s. As the rigour of the laws, and the vigilance of the officers rendered farther importa- tion nearly impossible, the merchants speculated on the price being doubled. A Foreign Journal gives the following as a corrtft statement of the annual produce of the mines of Russia :— Sixteen hundred pounds of gold, fiftv thousand of silver, two million of lead, ei^ ht million of copper, 623 million of iron, and 156,000 lbs. of vitriol. From the working of these mines the Crnwn derives a revenue of six jni'linns and a half of rubles. Bonaparte has orde1 ed a bridge to be construct- ed upon the Rhine, between Mentz and Cassel; the piers to be of stone, and the arches of timber. The expence is estimated at 8,000,000 f. . The Duchess of Gordon has lost the use of her limbs. She is riot in immediate danger, but. her recovery is considered by her Physicians as hopeless. The streets of Paris have recently been paved. The above Papers do not contain any informa- tion whatever respefting the British or French armies in the Peninsula. There is no meotion of its being Bonaparte's intention to quit the French capital immediately. » . .. t The Duke of Ahrantrs arrived at Milan ( jn the 20th February. Ill health is the assigned CAW of his journey ; but it is likewise rumoured, that he is appointed Captain- General of the lllyrian Pro- vinces. We hear from Holy Island that it blew a hur- ricane on Friday se'nnight, yet all the fishing boars returned safely, with the exception of one boat, in which William Gray was washed overboard and drowned. He was mnried exaftly a fortnight ago. Ano her boat was completely upset and Io « t, but the crew ( five Esliermen) were providentially saved, and picked oft her keel when in the aft of going down. There is a widaw of the name of Chambers liv- ing on the farm of Moncktonhall, who has been 4- 6 vears in the service of Mr. Skirving ; her hus- band was 31 vears foreman to him, and died in his service. What is remarkable is, she had 11 Children, and twice had twins ; four of her daugh- ters are married, all of whom have had twins, and on Tuesday last one of them was safely delivered of two fine boys, being the second time she has had twins. ~ _ ... A caricature has been exhibited at Paris, in • which the Emperor and the King of Rome are the most prominent characters. The Emperor is represented as sitting at a table in the nursery with a cup of coffee before him. into which he is squeezing beet- root. Near to him is seated the young King of Rome, voraciously sucking the beet- root. The nurse, who is steadfastly observ- ing him, is made to say, " Such, Dear, suck, your father says it is sugar.

LINES TRAOE,— We are happy to find, from the following documents, that a Meeting of that highly respeftable body, the Linen Merchants of the County of Londonderry, is to be held on Wednesday next, to take into consideration, the propriety of Petitioning the Prince Regeritt against the importation, by licence, of French Cambricks, & c. The general importance of the subjeft is so obvious, and the necessity of preserving the Staple Trade of Ireland, from the ruinous effefts of this licence system, is so striking, that we not only highly commend the public spirit of the County of Derry, but hope their example will immediate- ly be followed by all the Linen Counties in Ire- land. TO THE SHERIFFS OF THE City and County of Londonderry. We, whose names are hereunto subscribed, re- quest you wfll call a Meeting of the LINEN MER- CHANTS of the City and County of LONDONDERRY, to take into consideration the propriety of Peti- tioning the Prince Regent, upon the subjeft of the Resolution of the Board of Trade, which permits the granting of licences to import from France, & c. Linens, Cambrics, and. Linen- yarn. Upon a former occasion, the importa ion of these articles was highly injurious to the sole and staple pro- dufts #> f this country; and in the present reduced state of our commerce, and exclusion from Con- tinental and American markets, we are apprehen- sive that a similar importation may be attended with equally calamitous consequences.

JOHN MURRAY, | THOS. KENNEDY J' DREADFUL FIRE. SHERIFFS. On the night of the 20th inst. the house and offices of Michael M'Mullan, of the Falls, near Ballycastle, were burned to the ground, accom- panied by very distressing circumstances. The family had been occupied till a late hour, at their different branches of industry, and retired to rest with that contentment and calmness of mind, which Springs from the consciousness, of a well'spent day. After being a considerable time in bed, the father of the family was awakened by an unusual noise ; when he immediately ran out, and found his premises on fire : on bursting open the door where his cattle were, the first object pre- sented to him was one of his cows and a horse iying dead, and all the efforts he was capable of, could not force the remainder out of the flames 1 The fire had by that time, ran rapidly to the dwel- ling- house ; and tbe^ ole aim of the man was now to rescue his family, who were still fast asleep. This he happily effected by forcing through a window, and thereby succeeded in rescuing the whole from a miserable death. The scene at that moment was truly affecting— the mother, with an infant in her arms, and six children, in a most tempestuous night, without shelter, or covering, and all that they possessed devouring by the flames. Three cows and calves, two horses, farming utensils, clothing, furniture & c. shared one common fate ; and what adds to the misfortune of this family, the entire crop of potatoes, and most of the corn, were likewise consumed. Thus, in the course of a few hours, has an in- dustrious family been reduced to the most abject poverty, presenting a most forcible claim on the I sympathy and protection of their County. Many of the bodies of the unfortunate sufferers of the Jane, wrecked on Friday night at Ardglass, j have been cast on shore, and have been decently interred. The remains of Captain Busby and his Mate were, yesterday, conveyed in two coffins to this town. On Sunday, a man endeavouring to save some cloth, part of which he had wrapped round his arm, was, by the force of the waves, dragged into the sea and drowned, A London paper says, that the Earl of Darn- ley declared in his speech, that " Ministers know that their'existence depends upon a breath upon advisers not ayowed. They rest upon persons not officially known to that House, upon persons, who, for their own selfish objefts, would poison, the Royal ear, and who, if allowed to remain, would pi jve the destruction either of the' Prince or the country." Lord D. declared he had stated these stmimcDM to the Royal Highness personally. At a General Meeting on Thursday last, the following Gentlemen w° re elected to serve the offices of- President, Vice- Presiderit, Secretary, and Council, for the ensuing year :— ROBIKT BRADSHAW, President. ..

Anthony Hull and Richard Arnold were indifted under Lord Ellenborough's Aft, for stabbing Charles Magirin, at Dromore, on the T2th Janua- ry last, and also fo » an assault on Arthur and Charles Maginn. Charles Maginn, sworn— Was returning from Dromore, about ten at flight, with his brother, who was bringing with him the Priest's vestments, as their mother, who Was ill, wished for the rites of her church, when they were overtaken by the prisoners. Arnold wanted witness's brother to go in and drink, which he refused. ' Hull, who was standing near, took off" his baiitHcerehtefj- and on being a ked why he did so, said it was to. shew Arnold fair play. Witness's brother said, there was no. occasion for fighting, ^ nd Hull ppt on his handkerchief, and prisoners' passed oh, bidding good night and safe horned Afterwards Arnold came towards witness's brother,-.. and put: his arm over his shoulder and took him by. the hand, siy. ing, he would see him safe home; . brother ^ aid, there was no occasion. Arnold." again' grtbd night and safe home. Brother ( l? sin? d him to Jet go his handj and asked why he held him sil fast. Arnold said, it was the fegprd he had for; him ; adding, he wished him veil. Ainti't'd then cried, " Hull, where' af> e yoti Hull ttitn came running up, and witness's brothenseeing. sSmetfiii^ jn' his hand, asked, " what is that— is it ^ b^ ypijet!" Hull replied, " it is, you rascal ;'•' brother then gave witness the vestments, which were in saddle- bags, and leaping forward, seized Hull by the wrist and the collar; Arnold also went towards witness's Brother, upon which, witness- laid down ( he s'addle- bags and took ho! i of Hull by the wrist and by the blade of the bayonet; brother then said lie would take them to Robert . Dixon's, the Constable, and tell him how they fallowed him in the night with a naked bayonet ; brother dragged them towards Mr. Dickson's, witness still having hold of the bayonet; Arnold desired bro- ther to let him grt, or he Would sh « ot him ; that he had a case of pistols, and that " he would blow his papist soul to damnation, and all his sort;" Hull said, they ought to be all murdered) prisoner' said, can't you let us gopcaceablv ; brought tliem to Mr. Dixon's door, and* having % ti! l hold of them, struck the door with his Toot'; Dixon look- ed but of the window, and asked, what was the matter, and door not being immediately opened, witness let go the bayonet with one hand, in order - to rap, when prisoner drew the bayonet, and stab- bed him in the groin. Felt himself faint'; from loss of blood, but kept his hold of Hull, and when door was opened, got him into the house. The prisoners were given in charge, and Witness, was helped irito a chair; prisoners afterwards attempt- ed to f rc_- their way into the room, saying, they would kill him outright, aftd that ff he was stab- bed,' he'had dnne it hin » s" lf; Dixon's son prevent- ed them, and damned thtm for rascals to stand back, for they had killed the boy; was confined to his bed, and un Jer the hands of a surgeon, for about a fortnight; is still bsis from the wound, O i his cross- examination, he said, he had not drank more than. t^ o glasses, Prisoners were not intoxicated, but had been drinking; saw no pis-, tols; did not say to any person that the wound was got by accident in the struggle. ' Believes Hull is a yeoman. . , Arthur Maginn, the brother of the preceding witness, deposed almost literally to the same fafts. When taking prisoners to the constable's, Arnold, he said, strove to get away; witness heard his brother say, " he was ripped." In Mr. Dixon's h use, Arnold struck witness. .-:' Captain M'Cotnb, of the Dromore yeomanry, Called to see Charles Maginn, who-' had been wounded, and who said to him, it might be by accident, for there was a struggle. . Hull is. not now a yeoman, as he had been discharged for using his. arms when not on duty, for it is quite contrary to the regulations to use their arms, on any pretence when not under order's. The Ma-. ginns have a remarkably good charafter; . - The Jury retired and found a vertiifl— Wit guilty of stabling— Anthony Hull guihy of theaaan/ t. When the verdift was given In, the Hon. Baron Smith addressed the prisoners in a most solemn | and impressive manner. He said he entirely ap- ' proved of the verdift; but observed that there was ; too much reason for supposing that if the bayonet i had not been held, in the manner it was, such a ; use might have been made of it, as would now I have forfeited the life of one OT both o'f the pri- ll soners at the bar. His Lordship observed he was if We understand that some persons have suf* posed it was Mr. Rrifiert Hamilton, of Wilson's Court, who prosecuted Denis Haftiill, at the last | Carrickfergus Assizes, for a Str - et robbery This is A mistake— the person who v* » rv property cam ® forward on that occasion, was Mr. R. H. Taylnr, of Mill-'. treet, in this town, who is A respeftabte . Carpenter. In our report ifi Monday's Paper, of the proceedings in the Crown Cmii- r at Carr.' ckfergos, the evidence of Mr: Knowles, on ( he TY.' al of John Wallace, tor Forgery, w; « not explicitly stated. His examination, we understand, arosa from the following circumstance:—'< Mr. Kuowles happen? ing to be in Court nt the time M'Coy, the informer, was examined, and hearing him swear that be did not come for- ward for the purpose of saving himself, hut rather for the sake of justice, remarked tfl a gentleman who was standing next him, that if M'Coy was the p< r » on who sent by him, at the request of M'Claverty, the Gaoler, a Blemor.'. nSini | and message to Mr. Hugh Crawford, of Belfast, that hrf, M'Coy, must be an infamous feilow, the purport of whifh W.

This. c'r tyji- stance was immediately communicated to Mr, Scriven, the Prisoner's Counsel, who ! l the instant, called on M'Claverty, and he being sworn— stated, that he knew M'Coy, and that he got a h- tter from him and handed it to Mr. Knowles, by his dire& ions. Mr. Krwwles being then called, stated, that some time ago he was on business at the Gaol, and that he received an open note or memorandum withunt any adiirias, trom M Claverfy^ together with a verbal message, which M'Claverty requested him to deliver and communic ite to one of the Bankers in Belfast, ( who, from the description given by M'Claverty, Mr. Knowles supposed to b » ' Mr. Hugh Crawford,) which' he accordingly did; that he read the memorandum, it not being scaled or addressed; that ths purport of both memorandum and message, to the best of his recolleiSjoii, was to the- above effedh BELFAST EXPORTS, For the Week ending the 26th Instant.

How- ever, he might regre: it, should- at] y person of the religion his Lordship professed, be found . guilty of crimes under suqh a mischievous spirit, he would feel it be right, and his bounden duty, to visit the offence with the severest' punishment the law would permit; and where, on the' other hand, the laws. of the laindf were wanfonlr violated. by those of another persuasion, lie would be equally an- xious to- - inflift the . highest punishment., the. law warranted.. One of theprisoners. it appeal-?, made use of a deadly weapon, which he badJW right to have in his possession the time, and for which he had', been dismissed from - the corps. After some further suitable . observations, his Lordship sentenced Anthony Hull to six months imprison- ment, and to give securityto keep the peace, him- self in £ 100, and two sureties in sS50 each.—, Richard Arnold was also bound in- the same se- curities. MURDER. James Dornan and James Smith, were indicted for the murder of William M'Alindsn, a soldier of the North Down, on the 29th October, at Downpatrick ; and also indicted for an assault. James Hartwell, surgeon, attended the deceas- ed, Fbr a fractur e in the" scull; assisted in trepan- ning him— the scull seemed to be beaten in with stones, or some, spch body. He languished 10 or tVeive days, and died. James Black, is a soldier of North Down Mili- tia— On the- 29' h Oftober, a little after dark, was in company with M'Alinden ; witness's wife, six soldiers, and a recruit, were with them ; they were going home ; at the foot of the stream- brae they went into the Widow Williamsan's, and had a pint of spirits and a pint of beer; when coming out of the house, a party of 16 or 17 men were before the door, shouting and crying ' heu barrow' M'Alinden sard something in answer, and one of the crowd said, " who dare say any thing against heu barrow;" - M'Alind. en replied, he said against it, and that it was a very impoper word to be used to a soldier. One of the crowd, with a large stick, slapped at M'Alinden ; witness got between mob and. deceased, arid endeavoured to draw him back info the house, but found the door svss shut against them '; witness and M'Alinden put their backs to the dboy, and < Jrew their bayonets to keep off the mob, and endeavoured to get. by the side of the wall towards the street; at this tirr. e another mob of, about 40 were coming down upon them ; they threw a shower of stones— one of them struck M'Aliftden, and he fell- when'attempting to rise, another stone struck him on the side of his head, and he again fell. At this time the prisbner,- Dor- nan rushed out of the crowd, and seized vvitness's bayonet^ when about to recover it, the prisoner, Smi. lh. v, c^/ pe , aind . struck witness in the' face ; the witness's Wife now came up, and taking hold of him, stood between him and the mob, shouting to leave the ' pfacey or " they Would be'all murdered. His wife was struck with several stones ; heard a shtit ffred j" Witness conveyed' bis- wife to her sis- ters, irid when he came back, the mob had dis- persed-; M'Alrnderi was bleeding profusely, and sofne of the'toV'nSpeople carried hiiti to a car, and witness'went for a doftor; it wis A cleit moon. fair day of- Dawn; jatrick.

HAZELTON. C » LMUUN, Febrtwrjr 17, I8JIS. FI>' PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OJF LORBS— THURSDAY, MARCH 19. h THE PRINCE'S'LETTER. T, ord BORRINGDONsaid, the motion which he lliotild submit to their Lordships, originated entirely with himself— it was not suggested by any man, or j set of men, either in that House or out of it; it had arisen from an anxious wish to make an exertion which might avert the gloomy prospect that surrounded the country, and to prevent the occurrence of the worst calamity that could befal the empire. He kn » w he had made use of a bold expression— but the calamity 1 hefeferred to fully justified it— that calamity was no- thing less'than the separation of the U? o sister coun- trie^ fhe dismemberment of the empire. Of no less magnitude was the evil which he fearfully con- templated— and which, in his opinion, reasoning fiom cause to effect, the system pursued at present, must necessarily produce—( hear)— and, at a period far less remote than was, in all probability, calculated, by the generality of persons. It would not be ne- cessary for him to carry their Lordships back to the commencement of the illness of the Sovereign, nor Would it be necessary to do more than to advert to those amiable, those refined principles of duty, and affection, which at the commencement of the re- stricted Regency, and throughout its duration, had called on his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, to adopt and pursue that course to which his Royal father was known to be attached 5 and, while any hr, ie remained of his recovery, it would have been exta mely d'lHcult for him to have acted indifferently. But length a new sera arrived, when, from the hope- lessness of his* Majesty's restoration to health, the Prince Rv'gent c. ould no longer be influenced by those considerativins. What was the general situation of the country, at the iSeginning of tbe « « to which he adverted ? Tvhat. wi\ e the prospects of the nation ? And what had t> verclon'ded those prospects ?— At that | period the last tolonuT possession had lately been wrested from the et- emy. Tho' France was collect- ing fleets in different quai U- rs, yet not a vessel dare leave th: m, that was > t compelled to enter a British port. Poitugal had bee. n delivered from the military occupation of the enemy, in the tenth year of the ge- neral, and the fourth of the Peninsular war. Not on- ly had Portugal been succOi'ired/ but our armies, on every occasion that occurred, and their Lordships would recollect, that manv occasions had occurred, covered themselves with glory on - he soil of Spain ! These operations were conducted > 17 one of the first Generals of the age: and his abilities wfttfe still devot- ed to the serviceof his country. This pleasing pic- ture ; btit that which he was about to draw on the other side, was extremely discouiagirtg. The rnanu- facttiting clauses, from one end of the I > urury to the other, in a state of the deepest distress : mendi- city prevailing to a most unexampled extent.; new laws made, giving validity to paper currency ; in sfome of the manufacturing counties, the existence of a sj, u it of insubordination, evincing itself in acts contrary" i'o i the law, amounting almost to an insurrection; out commerce shut out from every port of Europe, ex- cept those of the Peninsula ; and the country threat- ened with a new war on another Continent. These were appalling circumstances. But a circumstance infinitely more appalling was, that, notwithstanding j the whole population of Europe was arrayed against Us— notwithstanding the small proportion of our own " population— yet one- fourth even of that population was excluded from the pale of the Britis\ Constitu- tion—( Hem !)— excluded by laws, enacttd in for- mer periods, and which had long since ceased to be necess iry for modern times. It was under thost cir- cumstances, which he had just described, that, ac- cording to an authentic, but. not an official document, it pleased his Royal Highness the l'ri'noe Regent, to exprts his wishes, that a Government should be formed 011 an extended and liberal basis. And here he wished to be understeod j as not meaning to in- sinuate that the Prince Regent had acted, on that occasion, without the concurrence of the Minis- ters of the Crown. That wish, however, was r. nt realized; and from the moment of the failure' of the negotiation, he dated that distressing situation of our internal affairs, which he contemplated with dismay- What were those portentous features of tho present time, which lorboded so much calamity? Were they not to be traced in the expression made use of by a Minister of the crown in another place, which it wns not regular to mention, vdit'n he said, " I wish the College of Maynooth hail nei er been in existenceWhat was this but to evince a mains animus . towards the feelings of the inhabitants of the sister country ? A Rt, Hon. Gentleman, a Member . Of the other Home ( MrGrattan), whose moderation in all matters connected with religion, whose talents, and whose integrity, did honour to hts country and to the empire, had gwen notice of a motion on the Catholic Question for the 14tb of April; and notice liad been given for a call of the House on the 13th, the ' day immediately preceding. The latter notice was not given by the Right Hon. Gentleman, to whom he had alluded, but by one of the Ministers of the Crown. What effect was produced by this mani- festation of sentiments hostile to the Catholic body ? Already he was informed that members of the Eccle- siastical Body, no doubt feeling themselves deeply concerned, began to exclaim against the tenets and principals of that church; already he learned, that that execrable ciy was about to be raised, which, to the infinite scandal of every religious mind, and to the disgrace of every one concerned in it, had been often resorted to before.—( Hear, Itetr J)— These were alarming symptoms, and had occurred ttrithin a very short period. But were " these the only Symptoms which marked a deterioration of the public interest ? Had their Loidsliips looked to the diur- nal, he might add, the provincial press ? Did they not know, or did they not hear, that it was formed into two distinct and separate parties ? Were they not, on the one hand, in the habit of reading every day, of an overweening and ambitious Aristo- CfacyT* which wished to take possession of the Crown itself? And, on the other, did tliey not dail^ see the most virulent slanders levelled against the Prince Regent? Surely their Lordships must be aware, and could not behold with indifference, the effects which must be produced on the mind pf the people, by such a mischievous application of that great engine of public opinion, the press.— Their Lordships, in common with himself, must also have heard, that nigh honours had been offered to se- veral individuals, r. ul refused, upon this ground, that their honour and their principles interposed between them and the situations to which ( Hey had been invit ed—( Hear,)— and tiiat they could not give their as- sistance to the present servants ot the Crown, while they continued to act as they did.— ( Hear.)— This, certainly, was matter of rumour, and he hoped then Lordships would forgive him for mentioning it 4ut tUat which lw knew to ba true was this—, iu , oa the 13th of February, the Prince Regent, did express a wish, that, in the present critical state of affairs, no meaitre should be adopted that could induce an opi- nion, that he intended to depart from the system al- ready pursued towards his allies. But subsequently to that period, he had lost the talents and exertions of a Noble Marquis ( Wellesley), who, being in his place, would, he hoped, in the course of the debate, give some explanation on the subject of his resignation.— ( Hear. ) Subsequent to the expression of that wish the Noble Marquis had resigned his office, having, two years and a half, conducted the whole diplomatic cor- respondence of tfiis country with the Peninsula, in a manner that evinced the most extensive talents. He had stated the inadequacy of the Government, as at present framed, t « meet the depending gloom which shrondedthe nation. Therefore he conceived, it was proper that some radical change should be effected ; and, the next consideration was, whether or not such a change was altogether hopeless ? A letter bearing the signature of a noble Lord near him ( Grey), and of another Noble Lcrd ( Grenville, who was prevent- ed from attending, in consequence of a domestic af- fliction, in which he was sure, their Lordships all sympathised— as well- from a feeling for the misfor- tune which had occurred fo an illustrious family, as from a just sense of the delicate and difficult situation in which the other Noble Lord ( Grey) might be tj placcd in the course of the debate), had been trans- mitted to the Prince- Regent. He came now to the consideration of that latter of the Prince Regent, for such he considered it, notwithstanding the Noble Earl opposite, ( Lord Liverpool) bad refused to give him an answer on the subject. And he would be astonished, if any Noble Lord should stand up in his place, and say, that a paper of public notoriety, ij bearing the signature of the Prince Regent, treating ' of matters deeply interesting to the country, was not a fit subject for animadveision in Parliament.— On the 13th February the Prince Regent had express- ed a desire, which he firmly believed to be sincere, that an administration should be established on a fiim basis. Unhappily thai desire had not ben gratified. But stiil it was sufficient evidence of the feeling of the Prince Regent at the time, as well as of his opi- nion of the state of the country- And that fact, in re- ference to his motion, was of very great importance. Because, in his view of the subject, that feeling might, still be gratified, provided certain points were explain- ed. He would now draw the attention of the House to those parts of the Noble Lord's letter, which had been particularly dwelt upon, and which, he believed, had been misapprehended.— The Noble Lords, hav- ing assigned their reasons, say, " It is on this ground alone that we must express, without reserve, the im- possibility of our uniting with the present Govern- ment." Now, he would ask, what had been un- derstood bv this expression of the Noble Lords ?— Why, that they insisted on forming the Government themselves— that they would hear of no persons, but of their own selection, and of their owr » principles— and that they would not sit in the Cabinet with those who were the confidential advisers of the Prince Regent. This was the interpretation which had been given of that part. Yet, without mean- ing to state what the feeling of the Noble Lords ally was on this subject, it appeared to him, th. it, in saying they would not couscnt to unite witi' the present Government that they could not nvsist an Administration, whose proceedings they disapproved— it did not folluw that they would not act with them, provided, of course, they were not placed in such situations as would prevent the Noble Lords carrying into effect tl-. jse measures • which they thought most conducive to the general interest. In tha next paragraph the Noble Lords observe, " Into the detail of tho^ e differences we are unwilling to enter ; they embrace almost all the lead- ing features of the present policy of the empire."— ' jV; r principles ot policy here alluded to we. e our differences with America, the Bullion Question, the Cathode Claims, and the war on the Peninsula— From this part of the letter many persons were in- clined to v'- irm the opinion, that to conciliate Anieric-', the Nobie ' Cords were willing to give up the mari- time!- rights o. 1' the British nation— these might be their feelings, b;' t, till they were avowed, he would not believe it; anti,- if they were attempted to be cai- r'ied into effect, he weuld be the first to oppose them. It was also said, that, had the Noble Lords came into power, one of their K'st acN would be, to open the Bank, and direct payment in specie. Ceitainly, when a favourable opportunity occurred, they might | intend to resort to that measure ; but he never couid j WiieV that thoy would proceed to alter the picsent ; system without giving- a sufficient lirrit. With re- j i ment in favour of the Catholics, provided sufficient safeguards and securities were adopted. He had j now stated what appeared to him to be the true con- I struction of the principal messages in this important document— and, if he were well founded in that inter, j pretation, he conceived sanguine hopes might still be entertained, if tke gracious wishes of the Prince Re- gent were again expressed, that the country may, even now, « be gratified with an Administration, form- ed to preserve domestic tranquillity, and to com- mand the respect of foreign powers. Some Noble Lords might smile, and he might be looked upon as an ignoramus in politics, when he asked the present Ministers not to interpose their voices ( hat night in preventing the address being carried. An address, not recommended or sanctioned by Ministers, might be new in latter times— but it was consistent with the principles of the constitution, and conform- able to its practice, in the best period of our history. If, on the 13th of February, the Prince Regent made a proposition - for an Administration to b<> formed on a liberal basis, it was clear that he conceived the then existing Administration was not so formed ; and what must he think of it now, when the talents and abili- ties of the Noble Marquis were no longer enrolled in the public service? It might be said, because this motion was likely to affect the existing Ministers, that it was therefore an opposition motion. Now, against that principle, for the honour of truth, and in the name of the country, he must solemnly deny tbe imputation. The motion originated with himself, and with no other person. He framed the motion, neither for nor against any set of men, party, or fac- tion, whatever ; he made it for the country at large, and, in their name, he entreated for it a favourable reception. His Lordship then moved— " That an hinnble Address be presented to his Royal " Highness the Prince Regent, to assure his Royal Highness, " that whilst we most deeply deplore the unhappy continu- < cauce of his- Majesty's indisposition, we entirely rely upon " his Royal Highness s wisdom and Princely virtues, for the " vigorous and beneficent exercise of those unrestricted pow- " ers, with which he is now invested ; and tliat his ltoyal " Highness may depend upon our affectionate attachment, " and our constant and zealous support in all liis measures, " for the maintenance of the honour of the Nation abroad. " and of its happiness and tranquillity at heme. Humbly to " represent to Uts Royal Highness, tliat for the attainment of " these objects, it appears to us to be essential that the Ad- " ministration to which his Royal Highness may he graci- " ously pleased to commit the management of his affairs, " should be so composed as to unite, as far as possible, the " confidence and good will of all classes of his Majesty's sub- jects. " That in the present state of Ireland, it is, in our opini- " on, impossible that sucli general confidence and good will " should be enjoyed by any administration, the characteristic " principle of whose domestic policy, as well as tlie bond of " whose connection in office, is the determination not only " not to recommend, but resist a fair and dispassionate con- " sideration of those civil disabilities under which his Majes- ty's Roman Catholic subjects in that part of the United " Kingdom still labour, and of which they complain as most " grievous and oppressive. " That we therefore humbly express our anxious hope, " that his' Royal Highness may yet be enabled to form ail " Administration, which, by conciliating the affections of all " descriptions of the community, may most eflectually call " fflrth the entire resource* ot the United Kingdom, and " may afford to his Royal Highuess ad. litional means of con- " ducting to a successful termination a war, in which are in- - " voived the safety, honour, and prospects of this country." , Lord GRIMSi'ON said, that lie trusted their Lordships j would pause, before they entertained the question brought I forward by the Noble Lord, for notwithstanding' tbe caution [ and forbearance cxerciued hv tile Noble Lord, this motion • did impute some blame to a Noble and Illustrious Person- age at the head of the Executive Government—( Cries of Hear, from Vie. Mtnisleri. nl Hatches. J The Karl LAl'DEltD ALE rose, to order.— It was highly irregular to any Noble Lord to make any p. vsoual allusion to the Personage at the head of the Executivej Go- vernment of the country. ' Die Karl of LIVERPOOL said, that his Noble Friend had not attributed any iutentiou to cast a calumny on his Royal Highness; on the contrary, he had disclaimed any such imputation. With respect to the motion itself, iie had no hesitation in saying, that it was not gounded 011 any in- formation laid before the House, but on a private letter.— ( Hear, hear, from, the Ministerial side.) Karl GRKY said, he thought that nothing could be more incorrect, nor unparliamentary, than to enter into the personal feelings or character of the Kxccutive Government. The question before their Lordships was one wiiic. li wajs distinctly in the cognizance of Parliament; and was nei- ther more nor less than an expression of the sentiments of that House upon the character of an Administration, as not fit to act beneficially for the Prince Regent, or for the country; but upon the principles now introduced by the Noble Viscount, what was done by the Sovereign, only through tlie counsel of his responsible advisers, could nevei J be arraigned, nor would the House have tlie power to ctdl Ministers to account for their proceedings. The Noble Karl ( Liverpool) had complained that 110 documents were (. before the House on which to found a motion ; but it was spect to the Spanish question, it had b. ei; said, the ; f Hot necessary that there should. The notoriety of tlie lei> •• t ' 1 1 .1-.. 1 1 ,. c ' I'tors and tlie general complexion of tlie Administration, formed a sufficient ground for a motion. these impressions, he should conclude by moving an Amend- ment to the motion, leaving out all the words aftjr " his Majesty's indisposition," for the purpose of substituting " An expression of tho sense entertained by the House of the « -' doiii and prudence with tvliich his Royal Highness had administered the Royal Authority ; and assuring him, the standard of the Constitution; but to ( b'. ain that t\ y should have an equal, share ia if, and a: i equal interest to de- fend it—( Hear.)— The- language held oi. to. i that nijjbt bv the Noble Lord, had, however; rcin'oved those pis... in:? hiijie- f without the reach evan of imagination, atifUfco alwrpativ re- mained for the. safety ' of the country, bat the renjnjtt! ofSli- that the House had observed with satisfaction-. the success of j',. nisters Vho had avowed such principles,. fie h< ul co-. ne down his Majesty's tyms, and the beneficial consequences which i{ to the House undetermined as to the vote be shorn);! - jit0. had resulted from tfie measures adopted bv his Royal High- .; The speech . of the Noble Lord opposite ( Lord MuWave) moment the Noble Lords were placed at the bead of the Government, they would withdraw the British troops from the Peninsula. Was itjms « ibie such sen- timents could fairly be imputed to tiiem, when they could not be supposed to be intimately informed on the subject, not being at present in the Cabinet— and, ' more than all, without knowing the opinions of that great man, Eui Wellington, who had proved himself to be a Statesman as well as a General.— It was possible the Noble Lords had imbibed such ideas. But, till they told him so, he would not cre- dit it. In speaking of Ireland, the Noble Lords ob- served—" we are firmly persuaded of the necessity of a total change in the present system of that coun- try, and of the immediate repeal of those civil disa- bilities under which so large a poition of his Majes- i ty s subjects still labour, on account of their religious opinions.— To recommend to Parliament the repeal, is the first advice which it would be our duty to offer ' to his Royal Highness." In this part, more than any other, the general interpretation seemed to be warranted by the construction of the words. The view he entertained of this Subject was certainly dif. ferent. First of all he coneeived, that a recommen- dation should be made to Parliament by the Minis- ters. of the Prince Regent, to take into considera- tion the Catholic Question. Parliament could then pass a resolution, sanctioning that principle— and, ! finally, every thing relating to the management | and detail of the question should be left to the I Executive Government, by which a specific plan ! should be laid before the Legislature. By this means, all the grace of originating this measure would attach to the Crown, to which, in truth, it I ought to belong. It would pledge Parliament to nothing but the mere consideration of the question, and leave the arrangement of the detail, - where it should be left, with the Executive Government; and whatever was proposed by them, Parliament, in the course of the ne> it Session, could reject or adopt.— But what inlei pretation had been given to this pas- sage ? That the Noble Lords would think it their duty, on coming into office, instanler, and uncondi- tionally to advise concession to the Catholics. This might^ H; their intention, and such might be the con- sti uction of the words ; but, from what he heard, and lie believed tliey meant to say, though they did not say it, thit they were fiiefidly to a legislative eaad- TheLfrftD CHANCELLOR begged to state bis opi- 011. When, by the indisposition of the Sovereign, tlie ! Executive Ar.' hority was suspended, the Estates of the Rtsaluj had invested the Prince Regent with the power to cxertuse the functions of the State, from that moment, he should bavc thought, that the name of his Royal Highness would b? mentioned in that House with the same respect as that of his Royal l-' atljer. Rut when he saw a Noble Lord stood up ill his place, with a newspaper in liis hand, and proceed to ask questions of a Minister, about a private Irtt r written by his Royal M ister, he confessed he thought it a most novel and unprecedented proceeding ; and he would tako tlie liberty to say now, that if any man in the situation\ tsf a Minister and servant of the Crown, answered such questions, lie never more would have entered the same room with that man, and would think it a degradation to associate with him—( Cries of Order ! Order ! The Marquis of DOUGLAS rose to call the Noble ' Lord to order. The observations of the Noble Lord were foreign to the subject, and appeared more like a speech than a de- cision on the point of order. Lord HOLLAND said, that the Noble Lord on tlie Woolsack had not advanced a single argument to prove that tile Noble Viscount ( Grimstoa) was in order; but when lie introduced a subject that had previously occurred, he was himself transgressing against the rules of order. The LORD CHANCELLOR said, he did not mean to deny that any Peer had a right to make any motion he . imitwiit r » f- ™ , » r_ with resnect to the conduct of Administra- thought proper, with respect tun ; but what lie meant to say was, that he never would act so unbecomuig the person placcd on that Woolsack, as to permit such language as he sometimes heard; for lie was bold to assert, in the face of tile Noble Lords, that Jie had I never heard any thing. so monstrous as the production of a newspaper . in that House.—( Here his Lurdshij) was inter- rupted by loud and repeated cries of Order ! The Marquis of LANSDOWN" said he never beard any thing so disorderly as the language made use of by the No- ble Lord on the Woolsack.' The LORD CHANCELLOR repeated, that ho should always object to any observation made in tiiat House having a reference to the Prince Regent, which, in the strict course of Parliamentary proceedings, ought not to be applied to the King himself; and he should protest against the produc- tion of a newspaper, or part of a newspaper pasted on auv other paper, into that House in the course of tlie debate.— ( Cries 6f Order, order, hear, hear.) Lord GRIMSTON resumed— He was sorry that be should have said any thing that was thought disorderly.— His Lordship then adverted to tiiu topics introduced by flu- Noble Mover, and expressed liis conviction that no ciiangc of Administration would be grateful to tile people, under tli « pfcst'nt ' aspect 61' ulSaire at home and abroad. Under ness ; and that lie might depend 011 the assistance of the House, wliile they relied 011 the firmness and inclination of his . Royal Highness fo promote the power, and to provide ef- fectually for the safetv nnd honour of the United Kingdom." The Karl of DAKNLKY said, if they looked at the situ- ation of public affairs, was it not such as to authorise any Peer to call for an Administration on a broad and more liberal basis ? Need lie remind them of the tumults of Not- tingham and other parts— yf the want of provisions, and all the other end- easing miseries of the people ? If from this dismal prospect he turned towards another part of the British dominions, was there any thing more consoling ? In such a state of things,, was any Noble Lord to be questioned for stating any ground for a motion 011 the subject, or were bis motives to be questioned in doing so ? What! was not the Noble Lord to submit a motion tofjthat House, without having it thrown ill his teeth, that he was, forsooth, casting' an imputation 011 the Prince Regent ? He sjioke not of his Royal Highness, but of his advisers; it was they who had committed those measures, of which, lie much feared, tliey had yet seen but a small part. It was notorious, that the present Counsellors of the Crown had declared their deter- mination never to grant tbe claims of the Catholics—( Hear, hear.')— With regard to the letter of the Prince Regent, if it was intelligible in any sense—( I. ovd Cries Order, from the Ministerial side.) The F. arl of LIVERPOOL rose to order. Ho must strongly deprecate any reference to a subject, of which there was no documents before the House. Lord HOLLAND wished tlie Noble Karl would state which of the Orders in tlie House had been otfended by tlie mention of the Prince Regent's letter. The Noble Earl said, there was no document before the House; but lie would ask him, where he learned that a Peer of Parliament Was'not authorised to refer to any subject, of which 110 do- cuments happened to be before the House ?—( Hear, hear.) The letter, it wAs asserted, was not the act of the Govern- ment ; but would the Noble Earl say, that they bad not a l ight to refer to a notorious fact. Lord MULGRAVE said that the objection was not, that 110 document was before the House, but the introduc- tion of the name of the Prince Regent, by assuming what the House did not know to be a fact. Lord DAKNI. EY resumed, and insisted with great force that he had a right to read not only the letter but the whole of the paper which contained it. He knew how much the Noble Lords depended 011 their majorities, but nevertheless, their political existence may be yet terminated by a breath. Lord ERSKINE said, he stood inarelationto tlie Prince, which belonged to few others. He had been in his service for thirty years, and had received many marks of kindness from his Royal Higheess, and as lie considered steadiness in friendship and attachment to be the source of all honour and usefulness, ho was anxious to explain why he liad it not in his power, consistently with tile attachment he must always feel for the Prince, nor with his duty to his country, to sup port tlie present Admuiistration. The letter pointed to an uuion with those now in office, whilst tliey differed ill all the points which vitally affected the country. N. w, notwithstanding all that had been said against coalitions, 110 such union liad ever taken place as had lately been rejected. The union between Mr. Pox and Lord North was of an, entirely different character. The grand po- litical dillerence between these statesmen, was on the subject of America. Mr. Fox contended for n system of concilia- tion— Lord North for a system of coercion. And surely it was a dreadful consideration, that Mr. Burke's immortal orations were made to empty benches ; and great majorities of both Houses then voted propositions which a man would now be consigned to Bedlam for supporting, and it was not until the act of American independence, when every ques- tion concerning our policy toward that country was at an end, that the union took place. Air. Fox then thought that he owed it to the country to use the only means which were then practicable, to giv(; effect to his principles j but this uni ® n produced great jealousy in the minds of many, and that im- pression on the public mind ought to inspire the greatest caution in public men on tbe subject of unions. No united government could become strong, however pure and up- right the principle of union, if suspected by the people. — The union with Mr. Fox and Lord Grei. vuTe, which formed the late Administration was of' tbe same character. It W! « s utterly impracticable, and never thought of whilst the war raging with revolutionary France was 011 toot. How could a Cabinet have been formed, if one half had been de- precating the war with France, and the other half inflaming the contest; if one halfhatl been passing severe laws to re- press sedition, whilst the other half were repressing it by giving tj the people full contentment, by tbe blessings of our free Constitution ? But if a Cabinet were to be fornmd by tile proposed union, like plus arid yniims in equations, they would destroy one another. One half determined on a perpetual, exclusion of the Catholics, the other half was con- vinced that to refuse their claims was to dissolve the empire. O11 tlie subject of America, one half resolved to keep up the Orders' in Council, the other half, convinced that, putting the objections of America out of the question, their coirti - nuance was ruinous to our commerce and manufactures.— He always reprobated Popery, but its period was come, and evdn with regard to the Catholic religion, the question was not, whether it was to be encouragid. but liow we were to deal with four millions of subjects professing it. The ques- tion, as Mr Burke well expressed it ou a different subject, was, npt whether the tiling was deserving of praise or blame ? but what, in the name of God, were we to do with it ? Could we mail and victual our fleets without Ireland ? Could we, in short, be a nation, if a separation were the consequence of onr obstinate refusal to consider these Petitions ? The Archbishop of Canterbury, on the debate of the petition of the Dissenters, bad given more advantage to the Church, than it had ever received from any Prelate, since these laws existed. After supporting, as became him, the establish- ment of the Church, he said, that the Bible was not tbe gift of God to a nation for the exposition of a Government, but tbe universal gift of . God to his creatures, for their con- solation and happiness, to be construed, by every individual, according to the dictates of his understanding and consci nee. How, theh, could disabilities be maintained because the Ca- tholics construed the Bible, however erroneously, according to their consciences, and as their fathers for ages had con- construed them ? With regard to America, the danger was not less vital. It appeared, therefore, impossible to act with persons who differed so essentially 011 these great objects. Lord IIARROWBY had not lieatd one opinion from the Noble Lord who brought forward tiie present motion, or the Noble and Learned Lord who had just sat down, which could in any degree justify the present address, the object of which was to form an united Administration. Had they not heard from the Noble and Learned Lord ( Erkine) that there was no way of forming an Administration which could include the present Opposition, except by sweeping away the present Administration, and that it was as impos- sible for him to coalesce with Ihe existing Ministry, as for a fish to come out of the channel and exist 011 dry land. Up- on what did the Noble Lord ( Borringdon) ground his mo- tion ? He stated the situation of the country to be now hopeless— and why '., Because it was reported that in ano- ther House, a certain Member of tbu Administration wish- ed that the College of Maynooth had never existed.— The j next ground was the notice which had been given of a Cal | of the House, when the Catholic petition was to be present- ed to the House of Commons. Wat this unprecedented or extraotdinary ? Another ground '"' as the present extraordi- nary state of tlie press. Was there any tiling new in that state? His never recollected a period when much abuse was ' not conveyed through the uiudium of the press against those in high stations.
