For' some, offence the prisoner severely whipped the lad, who, however, went home, eat his supper heartily, and made no complaint; but in the night com- plained of one of his knees, grew drowsy, and died, without being suspected to be very ill, in two days. On examining the body, it was found much braised and discoloured about the loins and thighs ; and, on being opened by two Surgeons, they gave it as their opinion that he had' died from the absorption into the system of extrava- sated and mortified blood. The Jury, however, from the peculiar circumstances of the case, ac- quitted the prisoner, who, it is to be observed, had at first gone to America, but, as if unable to liest there, had returned, and delivered himself'up to take his trial. On Thursday se'nnight, at the Derby Assiz - , J. Tomlinsctij Perceval Cook, and John England, three frame- breakers, were convicted of burglary and robbery. The Judge immediately passed the awful sentence of the lav/ upon th^ m, and more than once enjoined them not to ' expert mercy. valuable discovery has been lately made by some Germstn travellers in the Isle of Egina, un- der the ruins of the temple of Jupiter PauhelL niui.

The deficiency in Mr. Chinnery's acc untsis .£ 75,000; and his property taken under the extent for the Crown, is £ 35,000. Besides this defi- ciency, Mr. Chinnery is stated to owe a debt of nearly ^ 30,000 to the estate of the late Mr. Gold- srnid. Upon an examination of the accounts of Mr. Vil'iers, the la'e Paymaster of the Marines, the deficiency, it appears, will not exceed, the sum of £ 8000. A fracas happened lately at the Ancient Concert in London, which has excited much conversation in the higher musical parties. It s - wus that Cata- iani was to have sung very early in the first nff, but did not enter the orchestra till it wa « nearly ended. She was saluted by general marks of di » . ip; robation, and also from the Director's box, wterc? were the Prince Regent, the Duke of Cum- ber a id, the Archbishop of York, and the Earls Fortesseae and Darnley. Catalani immediately . retreated. Her husband expressed great resent- uitrnt, * nd some controversy took place between him and the Noble DtteClors. She went tbrougit her part afterwards, bat with great discomposure nnd has since addressed a letter on the subjefl ta the Prince Regent, who referred the matter to th* Nobk Directors. - — B& LF/ VST COM'M tvRClAii CHRONICLE. ' itJ : LONDON, Tuesday, March . Captain Knowles, of the Hotspur, an American • essel, bound from Baltimore - to Bourdeaux, ar- rived in town this morning, to makfe remonstrances to our Government on tbe subjeft of an occur- rence of a singular nature. The Hotspur Was, a few days since, intercepted on her way to France, by his Majesty's ship Andromache; . and, it is stated, that the Captain of the British ship, finding that the Hotspur had dispatches on board for Mr. Joel Barlow, the American Minister at Paris, in- sisted that they should be delivered to him; and after perusing their contents, ordered the Hotspur into Plvmouth, retaining the dispatches to lay them before the British Government, We have no further information to lay before our readers on the subjeft; but it may not be amiss to remind them, that from certain docu- ments presented to the British Court of Admiralty, some time since, it appeared that intelligence deeply affefting the vital interests of Great Bri. tain, has repeatedly been conveyed to the enemy through tbe medium of American dispatches. Sir William Scott, on that occasion, openly de- clared, with that prudence and temper which marks his charafter, that he could not for a mo- ment believe it possible that the Ministers of a neutral pawer could lend themselves to s » nefa- rious a purpose. We presume, therefore, that the seizure of the Hotspur's dispatches, if correct, is connefled with the disclosures made in our Court of Admiralty, above alluded to; and if this be the fa< 5t, we can- not sufficiently applaud the spirit and promptitude with which our Government has aCted. The de- mocratic, or rather the French faftion* in Ame. rica, ought to be taught, that there is still one Power in existence, perfectly competent to enforce the law of nature and nations: and we never heard it asserted by any Jurist, that neutrals were permitted to perform the humble duties of spies to contending Powers. Captain Knowles. brings Baltimore Papers to February 24th, but they contain no intelligence of a prominent nature — Star. A letter from Paris, of the I5th ult. received through a circuitous channel, says—" The ad- vanced guard of our army has already passed Berlin. It will scarcely be credited, but the fact is, that our own numerical strength, added to that of our allier, composes a force of between 5 and 600,000 men. The head- quarters are, at present, at Mecklenburgh ; and the quantity of provisions for the supply < f the troops exceeds all powers of conception. While these things are proceeding, the ultimate designs of the extraordi- nary mind by which they are directed is utterly unknown even to the principal agents of his au- thority. Bonaparte has established a National Gtiard, under a new form, which is composed of three distinctions. The first consists of young persons who have received their numbers of ap- propriations, and who have not yet taken their departure ; the ages of these are from 18 to ." 50 : the computation of this class is SO, 000. The second are from the age of 30 up to 45 ; ar. d the 3d from 45 to 60. The first are Only considered an acting corps : the two last constitute the reserve. The unpleasant part of our situation is, that bread it very dear ; it is five snu< the pound here, and as much as 10 sous at Rouen, where there have been disturbances; and, to prevent disagreeable consequences, some Lancers and Commissioners of Police have gone thither." It is said that a manufaflory has been institut- ed in France, for the purpose of forging English Bank- notes of various denominations. A parcel containing the nominal value of ,620.000 was re- cently received in England, and before the impo- sition had been discovered, several notes put into cireulation, which, however,, were afterwards re- called on the fraud being detected by the Consig- nee. Mr. W. Dundas was on Thursday last^ Iefled Member for the City of Edinburgh, in the room of Sir P. Murray, who vacated bis seat. After the conclusion of the usual forms of election, Mr. D addressed the Lord Provost and Council, and declared himself firmly attached to the policy of the present Ministers; but at the same time pro- fessed his readiness to concede to the wishes of the Cath. lies, provided such securities could be pro- posed a- would satisfy him in regard to the safety cf the Established Church. The fourteen merchant prize ships, taken at the Mauritius and Bourbon, sold for 197,202 dollars Letters from Madras state, that a pestilential fever had prevailed in the Madura and Palamcot- tah districts, to the southward,, which had destroy, ed almost all the inhabitants. A person who had returned from thence stated, that he had passed through neatly 20 villages without seeing one living soul! the houses, streets, and fields, being covered with the skeletons and bones of the inha- bitants ; and that about 80,000 persons were sup- posed to have perished. Although the mysteries of bill work are pretty veil understood in this country, the following appears to be a refinement:— By a law in Virgi- r'ia, if any bill of exchange is drawn for any sum pf irioney, and such bill is protested for non- ac- ceptance or non payment, it carries interest from its date, after the rate of 10 per cent, per annum, until the money be fully satisfied and paid. A j very clirious instance Occurred, some years ago, at Williamsburgh, An usurer, not satisfied with £ 5 oer cert, legal interest, refused to advance a | Sum' of money to a gentleman, unless, by way of security, he would- give him a bill of exchange that should he returned protected, by which he would be entitled to £](). per cent. The gentleman, who had imtiiediate occasion for the money, drew a bill upon a capital merchant in London, with whom he had never had any transaction, or car- ried on the least correspondence. Trie merchant, on the receipt of the bill, obseiving the name of the drawer, Very readily honoured . it, knowing the gentleman to be a person ef great property, and concluding that- he mefin » - to enter- into a cor- respondence with him. The usurer, upon' thisy" became entitled to only £ 5 per cent. He was exceedingly enraged, therefore, at being, as he Called it, thus tricked, and complained very heavily to the gentleman of his having given him a good fcill ijmead of a lad one! Wonderful Increase in Commercial and Literary In- tercourse.— In 1728, the London post arrived one day at Edinburgh, with oijlv one 6d. London letter, and that was addressed to the Post- Master General, on office business. The arrival of the post was then only once a fortnight— now it is six times a week. The post then employed ten days in travelling from London to Edinburgh— now it employs only three. Then the mails pro- duced no revenue or net. profit to Government, but was rather a continued charge; but the re- venue of the Post 0fli. ee in Scotland-, for the year ending in April, 1802, was £ 85,791, lb. 5d. DUBLIN, Saturday, April 4. DARING' ROBBERY. This morning between three and four o'clock, the Newry Fly Coach was stopped by a strong band of robbers, who, without any previous inti- mation, fired into the Coach, but fortunately with, out injuring any of the passengers," though the Fly was full.. They then proceeded to hand out those in the Coach, one by one, and with tbe most dreadful imprecations, made them deliver up all they possessed. — There were two ladies, Mrs. Ha- milton and Daughter, whom'the robbers obliged to kneel down in the road, declaring they would shoot them instantly— one of the . gang, however, interfered to save them, and even declared he would not allow their baggage to be touched.— However, the Captain of the banditti ordered every thing to be carried off.— Money, watches, trinkets, clothes, every particle was plundered. The Rev. Mr. Beresford was in the Coach, and lost, we un- derstand, £ 200; another Gentleman lost £ 600, and it is thought the villains carried off with them, altogether, more than £ 2000 in cash and other property. It is to be hoped that every erertisn will be made to apprehend this desperate and numerous banditti. is likely to be protrafled. TV enfony has'- spared. - BELFAST COURSE OF EXCHANGE, Sc.

Bv DONAGUABEE 2 Br DUBLIN....: DUE 0 o BELFAST, Monday, April 6, IS 12. The London Papers received since our last, announce the arrival of important dispatches from Lord Wellington, dated at Elvas, on the 20th ult. containing the account of the first successful operatious before Badajos- Oo the arrival ot the lished by Government:— WAR DEPARTMENT, APRIL I, Dispatches have been received from the Earl of Wellington, dated the, 20th of March. His Lordship invested Badajoz - on the 16th, and broke ground on the following day, forming his first parallel within 200 yards of the outworks, called la Picurina. Lord Wellington conducts the siege in person, with the 3d, 4th, and light divisions, upon the left of the River. Sir Thomas Graham crossed the Guadiana on the 16th, with three divisions of infantry and two brigades of cavalry, and marched upon Santa Mar- tha and Valverde, while Sir Rowland Hill, with two divisions and a brigade of cavalry, moved upon Merida, where he made some prisoners. These movements induced General Drouet to retreat from Villa Franca to Homachos, to' pre- serve his communication with General Darican's division, stationed at Llerena. Upon the 19th, a sortie was attempted by the garrison of Badajoz. Two thousand men push- ed out against the right flank of our work, but were immediately driven in with considerable loss, by Major- General Bowes. In this affair General Pifton's Aide- de- Camp, Captain Cut liberty was killed, and Lieut.- Colonel Fletcher slightly wounded. Since the commence- ment of the operations, the loss of the allies has been about 150 men killed or wounded. There tvas no general movement of the enemy upon the side of Ciudad Rodrigo so late as the j 17th March,- but two of the three divisions of Marmont's army, which had been upon the Ta- gvs, bad moved through the mountains in die direction of Valladolfd. The rains had been very heavy for the last , hree days. ; PACKET- BY EXPRESS. nei'her art nor skill to render it Jt frrpat strong work; and it is garr soneel by nearly SOOQ picked, troops. * Some time ago, a great proportion of the- garrison were Poles; but they deserted in such numbers that they were all taken out and replaced by a brigade of Germans: these, however, being found to desert in such number to the Pales, they were withdrawn, and sortie Swiss put in, in'tte proportion, however, of three Frenchmen to each Swiss, and taking the precaution never to send , them in any but Poles. " The taking Badajns- will be a very arduous task. The town is now, very stronjf, and numer- ous out- works have lately been added.. The sea- son is most unfavourable,; but, if the French army does not make its appearance, Badajoz will certainly fall. • " The army is in high health, and in'the greatest spirit^ ; their confidence in their illustri- ous leader is unbounded,; and there is absolutely nothing that, under'him, they would not attempt. Lately the sailors of the fleet at Lisbon, made a request that they migjht be marched to the army, and fight under the Earl of Wellington. The tars are indignant at being quiet, and every- ac. count that reaches Lisbon of a gallant achieve, ment by the soldiers vexes'them. ". The poor Cameronia » s are qnite hors de combat. and have been sent to Lisbon to 4o garrison duty. The Ro^ al Marines, who a year ago wer • sent out and have been doing the Lisbon duties, arc embarked and sent home. This invaluable corps has been of the greatest service in Portugal; by taking the duties at Lisbon, they enabled General Peacock to send up all the regular corps to the army. <• " Report is strong, that Marmont, Sonlt, and Suchet, are coming on with their united forcot but this does not disturb the Earl of Wellington. The French army have bast extremely unhealthy, and of late lost so many men from the flux, as well as desertion, that it is understood Soult and Marmoui's as well as Bannet/ s corps, are quire crippled. " Should the Earl of Wellington carry Bada- jps, it is said to be his intention to march, to the South, and raise the siege of Cadiz/' Two Anholt Mails, and one from Heligoland, arrived at a late hour last night.

A very spirited affair has lately taken place in the Scheldt. Three French ships of th, e line, coming down, were attacked by one cf our frigates and two sloops of war., and the Admiral's ship was driven on shore. The London Journals. of the 1st. inst. which have arrived by express contain the following ad- ditional intelligence :— London, Wednesday, April 1. SECOND EDITION. Soon a'ter this Paper was put to press, we were favoured with the perusal of a letter, dated Camp before Badajoz, 21st March ( one day later than the dispatches), from which we have extracted the substance:— " The Earl of Wellington arrived at Elvas on the 12th. On St. Patrick's day, this auspicious day th& ground was broke, and firing commenced. On that day the Commander in Chief of the Bri- tish; the Commander in Chief of the Portuguese, as well as many of the leaders, and a great pre. portion of the gallant army being sons of Erin, j they opened on the French. " The weather was unfavourable, and the siege, AMERICA; Pi ivate letters wi'h which we are favoured from America, dated the 20th of February, represent" the st* te cf affairs between that country and Bri- tain, as more hostile than before; and in the Re- port of the Committee of Ways and Means, refe- rence is made to a state of contemplated war, and new duties are proposed, to defray the expences incident to such an event. It wil also be seen by the folio" ing extra. 1) from the American official Paper, that there is no truth in the late report of Mr. FOSTER having proposed a former treaty as the basis of a new one : ( From the National Intelligencer.) Various rumours have been widely circulated for a few days past of negociations on tlie tapis between our Government and the British Minister. These rumours have even assumed body and form, so far as to designate the peculiar features of an ideal arrangement with as much precision as if such an arrangement had actually been made the subject of negotiation. We have every rea- son to believe ib « ibere is no foundation what- ever for these ephemeral report-; and that there never was a more hopeless prospeft of an ami- cable accommodation wi; h Great Britain than at present. We understand that a gentleman in Portaferry, who bought a large quantity of potatoes at the bushel, is flow aitually selling them to the poor of that place at the rate of L. 3d. A ROMAN CATHOLIC CLERGYMAN. - Tfee following is an extract of a letter, dated Bandon, in the county Cork, March 28, from a respectable and intelligent Protestant, to hisGor- respondent in this town : " If Mr. PERCEVAL had been in tbe Roman Chapel of this town, upon the evening of Good Friday, he might have heard the Clergyman who presided, the voluntary ihampion of the la. ws of that establishment, which HE, too crudely believes, the Catholics are anxious to subvert. A scarcity, ( imaginary or not) appears to have extended its alarm- even to this extremity of the South, and an assemblage of the people to oppose the exporta- tion of provisions ( at Clonakilty) within a few miles Of this place, was intended. The Pastor took the opportunity ( after the solemn rites of the day) to exhort his flock, with all the impre= sive- ness of piety, and ardour of truth, to abstain from taking any share in the expefled tumult; depicted the fatal issue Of such lawless proceedings, that actually produced the very scarcity they were ar- rayed against— eulogized the happy constitution that guarded them, and conjmed them to attend to the admoniiions from that place, that could only be direiL'd to their temporal and eternal welfare." . | t. fo,. the boat for the natae of master.

COUNTY OF DOWN. persona' i^ ougliVs ii yojr Representative, it will be the highest honour of my lift— rely on'it, I never will discrt the Interests of Ireland, The Cause of the People, and Free- dom of Eieftioh, rheet support beyond my mist sanguine expectations. Whilst the enemies of Ire- land are dismayed, divided, and undecided, an I [ apprehend, vill not dire to- oppose the People, I have strong reason to think, that most of the ,'; n-: u le< vding Intetests of the County, will pursue the honourable con'd'ufl'of permuting their Tenantry to poll as they thijik proper. The Jfeeholders may depend on every effort being mjwe to support them in their just right of exercising their Constitutional privilege of voting according to conscience, and to punish and ex- pose allrthose ( AGENTS IN f ARTICULAR),, wliio shall dare to attempt to drive them to poll, or pre- vent thanv from performing their bouuden diuy to their Country, I congratulate the County, on the victory gain- ed at Down, on Friday the 27th ult, by tho Inde- pendent Interest, over their Opponents, ai h ius; h the County was, very unfairly and improperly, laken by surprize, and without due notice. Gentlemen, victory is within your reach— ex. ert yourselves— communicate every necessary in- formation to " the Friends of the People" - veiy thing tending to support the Interests of Ireland, and the Honour and Independence of the County of Down. I am, Gentlemen, Your Faithful Servant, ELDRED CURWEN POTTINGER. P. S. The Dissenters of the County of- Down, are requested to observe, that the present Admi- nistration. are going to associate w ith them in the Cabinet, Lord Viscount Sidmouth. It is scarce necessary for me to remark, " that every Member of the ' Cabinet is. held to agree with, and be accountable \ for every measure, supported ly any Member thereof' LordSidmouth'sdeclarations; HIJ BILL OR BILLS; the prosecutions lately carried on against Dissent- el's. f the alarm excited through that roost respect- able body, the Dissenters of England ; sjjould point out to the Irish nation, the necessity they lie tinder, to maintain the Right of ALL PERSONS to Religious and Civil Liberty. If the Dissenters of England- are crushed by the M- aisters of the Crawn, certainly the Dissenters of Ireland, cannot expect to be permitted to enjoy LIBERTY OF CON- SCIENCE. ti BELFAST COMMERCIAL CHROtflCLK AMERICAN POT ASHES BY AUCTION BERWICK, ASH, & PHILLIPS, RE Lauding, per tiie NELLY, from BRIOOEWATER a Parcel of PRIME ENGLISH FLAXSEED, FOR SALE, WITH New Orleans, 1 West India, and [• COTTON WOOL, Georgia, J Pot and Pearl Ashes— New A'icante Barilla, Dantzig Weed Ashes— Bleachers' Smalts, I Refined Saltpetre— Ditto Rosin, Fine nnd Common Congou Teas, Scale and Lump Sugars in Hhds. and Tierces, Carolina Rice, I Jamaica Ginger anil Coffee, New Red Clover- Seed, vj Malt and Corn Kiln Tylet, CSV.

This will ac- count to those unacquainted with the circumstance of the rea on why Captain P. declared himself not guilty. Captain Paterson was released from ar- rest, and his acquittal made known to him a few days previous to the storming of Ciudad Rodrigo, where the 77' th distinguished themselves. Captain Paterson's Company lost its Lieutenant and one man move than half its complement in that bril- liant affair.

To be tried for fighting a Dcel with Captain Lewis, of the same Corps, on the 11 th of Novem- ber, in which duel the said Captain Lewis received a wound of which he died on the 29th of Novem- ber. The Prisoner, Captain Paterson, pleading Not Guilty, the Court proceeded to the examination ! of witnesses. PROSECUTION. l ieutenant- Colonel John Henry Dnrkin, com- inanding 77th Regiment, informs the Court, that he was no witness to produce to prove, that Cap. tain Joseph Paterson is the Officer who fought % ith, and wounded Captain Lewis; but under- standing in the Regiment, that there had been a dispute the evening before, between Captain Lewis and the Prisoner, he considered it his du- ty to bring Captain Paterson before a General Court- Martial. Question from the Court to Lieut.- Col. Dunkin. Have you done every thing in your power to col- left evidence in support of the Prosecution ? To the best of my judgment I have. First Evidence in support of the Prosecution. Assistant- Surgeon John Biydges being duly sworn, informs the Court, that on the morning of the 11th Nov. he was walking between Forcaihos and Casillas de Flores, and heard the report of pistols or guns, and immediately went to the spot from whence the report seemed to issue, and saw Captain Lewis laying on the ground, with a wound in the right hip ; he was conveyed to his quarters, where evidence examined the wound, with the Surgeon of the Regiment, and found that a ball or some other substance, had passed obliquely downwards towards the abdomen, and finding that the wound was so extremely deep, and had taken that direftion, it was dressed superficially, and other mefans were adopted to prevent inflamma- tion from going on. Evidence continued to at- tend, until ihe 29th of November, the morning of Jlis death, when he dissefleu the parts, and tracing the mreSuin of the ball through the hip- bone, un- der the Illica artery, and lodged in tb » Sacrum ; tnd Evidence has uo doubt, but that this was the cause of his death. Question from the Court— When you saw the deceased on the ground, was there any person pre- \ sent J Answer— Captain Paterson and two others, fcut cannot say who they were, my attention being fart'icu'- aily direfted to Captain Lewis, who im- I mediately said, " Paterson give me your hand, I j forgive you, I am alone to blame, every thing is j fair and honourable on your part." Question from the Court— Had Captain Pater- • c » vny weapon in his hand ? Acswei— None. Did any other conversation pass between von and the deceased, during the time you attendef him till his death r He frequently observed, that he alone was to blame. This was frequently re- peated. Did the deceased never mention to you by whom he was wounded ? Never. Did the Surgeon of the Regiment or any other, assist vou in attending Captain Lewis ? None but Mr. Micklam, whom I consulted occasionally. He was at the time afling as Staff- Surgeon to the Division. Question to Lieut.- Colonel Dunkin, the Prose, cutor, bv the Court.— Do you think that the evi. dence of the Surgeon of the Regiment would throw any farther li ht on the subje£ l ? I do not; and had I conceived it, I should have ordered him to have attended. Here the Prosecutio" closes, DEFENCE, Captain Joseph Paterson being put upon his de- fence, denies the charge preferred against him ; and calls upon Lieutenant- Colonel Dunkin, com- manding the 77th Regiment, and other Officers of that corps, to speak as to his general con- duft. Lieut.- Colonel Dunkin, being duly sworn, considers Captain Paterson as gentleman- like an Officer, and as unlikely to be engaged in a duel, as any Officer of the corps. Major John Rudd, being duly sworn, states to the Court, that his knowledge of, and acquaintance with Capt. Pater- son, commenced in the year 1807, when he joined the 77th Regiment, at Lincoln, from that period, he has observed Captain Paterson to possess a strong disposition to live on terms of the utmost cordiality and friendship with his brother Officers. Captain Hugh Maclaine,- being duly sworn, states as follows: that he has known Capt. Pater- son since the year 1807, and has been in ha- bits of intimacy with him, and his principles as a gentleman, an officer, and a man of honour, were such as he should wish to imitate. Capt. Patrick Baird, h. iving been sworn, states, that he has been acquainted with Captain Pater- son since the year 1807, when he had the plea- sure of meeting with him at Lincoln, and has been a good deal in his company, and the idea he has formed of him, is quite the reverse of being quar- relsome. Captain Paterson, in concluding his defence, wishes to state to the Court, that. he has been near- ly It years in the army, and has lost an only bro- ther on service in this country. Here closes the Defence. OPINION & SENTENCE." " The Court having weighed an*', considered the evt- " dence in support of the prosecution, with what the pri- " snner, Captain Paterson, has brought forward in his de- " fence, are of opinion, that he is Not Guilty of the charge " preferred against him, and do acquit him thereof, for " want of sufficient evidence.

[ 7' he following is the Speech of MARK Dureuir, Esq. at the above Meeting, at Ncwry, on Monday, the 23d ult,~] " Mr. CHAIRMAN— Before I offer the Petition and Resolutions which I hold in my hand, to the consideration and adoption of this Meeting, it is necessary that I should state to> the Catholics of this County that their Delegates have been ob- strnfted in carrying the Resolutions of their last Meeting into execution, in concert with the Gene- ral Committee oi'the Catholics of Ireland, by the Government of this country ; and, that of course and necessity, Aggregate Meetings have become necessary, to bring our Petitions before Parliament. " When it is considered that the Government of this country have uniformly acknowledged and professed the utmost confidence in the loyalty and patriotism of the Catholic Nobility and Gentry of this country, it is difficult to account for/ heir hav- ing arrested and dispersed that very body of Men, to prevent their approaching the Legislature of their country with an humble Petition, and not resist the assemblage of the Mobility for the same purpose. " Is it to their incapacity we shall attribute it ? No!— it's rather to be attributed to the hardness of their hearts, producing an obscurity of intellect, which, like Pharaoh's, produced the ruin of him- self and his country. " Indeed I think this is not the only glaring in- consistency observable in the present Administra- tion. By the Aft of 1793, Catholics may hold commissions in the army, in Ireland: a Bill, to ailow them the same privilege in every other part of the Empire, was refused; turned out the Mini- sters that proposed it, and introduced the present Ministry— so then the sword is put into the hands of the Catholic of Ireland, in that country where, of all others, he could do most mischief with it, if so disposed ; and it is refused him in every other part, where, if ill disposed, he could do little or no mischief with it. I will ask any rational, impar- tial man, whether such a Ministry be fitter to con- duft the affairs of a Great Empire, or Subjefts for a Lunatic. Hospital ?—[ Great applause. " The efforts bf the Minister to impede the Ca- tholics from Petition, has had a most happy con- sequence for' the Catholics, because, what I pre- dated in this house not longer than six month* ago, as likely to happen, has aftually come to pass. All of the Protestants of Ireland, most dis. tinguised for probity, honour, rank, wealth, ta- lent, and public spirit, are Catholic advocates: j the bribed, the pensioned, the hireling, the ex- || pedant, and the bigot, only against as,— Applause. " The Protestants, who see tl| at C lWic Emancipation is Protestant security and Irish Drosneritv ( in which prosperity thev must largely participate), now petition for u « : but I am not disposed to believe that Mr. Perceval will coincide even to the Protestants of Ireland any snch salu- tary boon, when I find him endeavouring to call forth all th » bieotry of England tr> overthrow Irish Protestant liberality and Patriotism. " Will Mr. Perceval have the goodness to statfe, whether it is the moralit'-, creed, or discipline of the Catholic Chnrch, that make ns unfit to, be Frpemen ? Mr. Perceval knows, thatt he Roman Catholic Church teaches exaftlv the same moral duties with his own, and enforces it as strongly, and Finnishes its infraflion with still more severity than h's does: what is a virtue in the Protestant, is the same in the Catholic— and vice versa. Is it because on certain days and seasons I live on fasting fare, to subdue my passions, and atone for my sins, while Mr. P. indulo- ps in the luxuries of his table, T am unfit to be a Freeman. " Is it because I pray for the living and the dead, and Mr. P. prays only for the living, that I' am dangerous to the S'ate and Society ? " Is it because our Clergy live in celibacy, while his enjoy the blessings and comforts of ma- trimony, that our Clergy and their Flocks along with them are to be proscribed ? No, no, this cannot he the cause; for Mr. Perceval knows that the Catholics of Spain and Portugal believe and praflice as we do ; and yet he expends the wealth of the Empire, and hundreds of thousands of lives, to support their liberty and independence What then is the cause of holding the Irish C tholic in such abhorrence and slavery ? I believe from my soul, it is this, and only this— we are all, great and small, rich and poor, GUILTY of the original, unpardonable, mortal sin of being born IRISHMIN.—( Applause.)— Mr, Perceval knows we form more than three- fourths of the population of Ireland, and if made free, would join our Protes- tant countrymen to demand the restoration of her rights, and then the vastresoti'ces of our conn, try would be direfted to onr own interests, to the prejudice of English monopoly and insulting perioritv.— Applause. " While Mr. Perceval and his party direft the concerns of the StatP, I have but faint hopes of seeing the religious fends and persecutions exist- ing in poor Ireland ( to the ruin of her peace, dis- grace of Christianity, and encouragement of her enemies) repressed or punished, sincc I think it plainly observable that the road to promotion and profit, is to foment them, and the very reverse to those that would discontinue or reprobate them— ( Apphruse.)— What promoted ?• Duigenan to a seat in the Privy Council, or a'Giffard to place and pension ! he that runs may read.—. What re- moved I. ord Harrington from the chief command in Ireland, was it because he forbid the badges of Orangeism being worn br the troops— what re- moved hi3 br# ve Son from the Staff of Ireland — was it because he publicly approved of his Fa- ther's conduft. and partook of Irish hospitality. —" Alas 1 poor, prostrate, murdered Ireland."

" Renown'd for their courage, on each Foreign shore, " Each Narinn in Europe would wish them their own, ' For England they conquer and bleed at each oore; " By England insulted and trampled at home." " The Catholics of Ireland have long cherish- ed the fond hope, that the arrival of the Prince'of Wales at regal power, wonH be the day of their | deliverance— in all their aftliflions, this was their I greatest consolation— the thought they might i then, as Maro did on the birth of Pollio, sing | with cheerful hearts, Nunc redi' et Virgo, .

J " To my Lord Castlereagh, who is again asso- ' ciated with Mr. Perceval, I beg leave to addtess a few words, and ask a few questions:— I remem- ber well, my Lord, the commencement of your political career— yonr eleflion for the County of Down— you were then hailed by your Country as the Immaculate Youth, the Magna spes altera Roma of your Country. And truly, my Lord, had your uncommonly powerful and splendid talents been direfied to the interests of your Country, she would not ( as she has this day) have reason to mourn over her great misfortunes. " Von - hen publicly and solemnly pledged your- self to promote the interests of your Country, and Reform in the C immons House of Parliament.— How have you fulfilled your promise ? You have lent, your powerful aid to extiipate, to exterminate, to transport lis." Parliament of your Country, and thus leavo the interests of your Country at the will of an English Minister: had you sold but your own birth- right f. r a mess of pottage, you might have been pitied though despised, not execrated as you are. " To accomplish this blessed measure, you held forth to the Catholic the cheering prospedf of Emancipation. How do you propose fulfLf'ng this engagement f— I suppose, pretty much in the same wiy you fulfilled your promise to your first constituents ; not by raising the Catholic to a level with the Protestant, but reducing the Irish Pro testant to a level with the Catholic. Why I think you will effeft this, may be learned from another question I will ask you, and I pray Heaven that your answer may convince me that my fears are not well- founded 1 " Let me suppose, my Lord, that an Afl of Parliament were to be passed, that would degrade your Noble Father from his honours, and remove him from the Governorship of the County of Down— that the same Aft would remove you from your office, your regiment, and the House of Co nmons— and your brave arid truly gallant brother from the command in which he has served his country so gloriously— that this A< Sl would go still farther, and stamp such a maik on every branch and ramification of the Londonderry Fa- mily, its descend. ints, and posterity, to the latest generations, as to reduce them to the present con- dition of the Catholics of Ireland— that a mob of the most ignorant, illiberal, « nd bigottej of the community weie instigated to assemble annually, fo commemorate the downfall of yoftr family— that the same mob would exhibit the most insult- ing badges, and use the moSt insulting language to add to your misfortunes— that the same mob would occasionally intrude on the innocent recrea- tions or amusement of your friends, murder some of them, and wound raany others—' hat the Go- vernment, when applied to for their aid to brin2 the murderers to justice, would refuse it— that, in this distressing situation, yonr family and friends would selefl yon, and others of their friends of the most considerable rank and talent, to prepare a Petition to Parliament for relief from their suffer- ings— that the Minister, to prevent your approach to that Parliament, would arrest yofi, and exert all its power, to convitft ycu of evil mind and se- ditions intention— I ask you, my Lord ( and this pifli. re is not overcharged in its colouring, no, but far from it indeed), how would you feel affefled to that Government ? " You are, my Lord, a good judge of human nature, and I will not anticipate your answer ; but I will tell you, my Lord, that if there was not more stern loyalty and genuine attachment to the British Constitution in the Catholics of Ireland, than there is justice," mercy, or sound policy in Mr. Perceval and you, I really believe, the sul- jefls of the Empire would soon have cause to mourn over the Tomb of British Liberty. " To the Orange Societies of this country I would say, in pity, in Christian charity, and love for my country's peace ar. d happiness, do you feel less of the comfort and benefit of the sun's light, because it shines on the Catholic ? Certainly not. Would it lessen your liberties, your comforts or prosperity, if the Catholic was a Freeman ? No indeed, but it would secure and increase them all. Will you, then, my dear, ( hough misguided coun- trymen, for the privilege of insulting your Catho- lie neighbour, disturb the peace and obstru'ft the prosperity of your country, in which you, your children and pos'erity would share, for a gratifi- cation that would disgrace an Indian ? O, my coilntrymen, rather lay down the name of Chris- tian, than petsevere— every page of the Scripture condemns you ; take my advice, then, and yours and vonr chiTdrens' happiness will be secured— the British Constitution, the integrity of its Em- pire, fixed fitni and unalterable ; otherwise, I fear, we and you will become the miserable slaves of a Corsican Tyrant. " To my Catholic countrymen I say, length of years, and much acquaintance with my country- men of every religion, enables me to assure you, that the surest road to your happiness and pro- sperity, here and hereafter, is to be friendly, affec- tionate, and faithful to your Protestant neigh- bours. You owe them ever j kindness and friend- ship for their exertions in your favour— and, for the sake of Him who suffered death for you, be ready to serve your enemies, as He did. It is with pride and pleasure I confess it," that, during a long life, the most remarkable afls of disinter- ested friendship I ever experienced were from Protestants and Dissenters. To such adts, of an Anderson, a Carson, a Hanna, now no mote ( may Heaven be their lot!) and a Gordon, yet living ( and may heliv- long and happy !) do I, perhaps, owe a great part of my present happiness. " You, my Catholic countrymen, possess common with all your . fellow- subjefls, the inv. luable privilege of the E'e^' ve Franchise ; may I hope and entreat you will never use it to the in- jury of yourselves or your country. Scorn to be bsught, or you cannot complain of being sold'. Can you complain of being slaves, if you vote for him that votes for your slavery ? Vo e only for those that vote for yonr Emancipation and Ire. land's rights," and Ireland will soon be as she laps, s, ia nvai- ougbt to be. EXECUTION. WINCHESTER, MARCH 28.— On Saturday morn,- ing last, soon after eight o'clock, Julian Dubois and Guilliaame Beury were taken from the Jail to the usual place of execution, and after a sho'r{ time spent in prayer, Were, a little before nine; launched into eternity. Since their condemna- tion their conduct was orderly, and they had re- gularly joined in prayer with Mr. White the Ca- tholic Piiest, who attended them daily with the greatest assiduity— On the morning of the exe- cution, the officer of the prison went to their cells, soon after five o'clock— he found the prisoners in an almost lifeless state, and the floor covered with blood. The Surgeon of the prison was imme- diately sent for, whose aid prevented the further effusion of blood, and sufficiently recovered the prisoners to attend to the exhortations of the Priest, who convinced them of the heniousness of their attempts upon their own lives, and they ex- pressed their contrition for it. They effected their purpose by means of a sharp piece of glass, with which they made an incision in their arms, and then enlarged it with an old nail, sharpened, which they had concealed between the upper part and sole of their wooden shoes. They had ex- pressed a wish to have their mode of death chang- ed from hanging to being shot; when apprised of the impossibility of their request being grant- ed, they appeared resigned to their fate. Beury, with the impression that he should effectually de. stroy himself, had left a written paper in his room, stating " That a valiant Frenchman, when sen. tenced to die by the common executioner, rather tlian disgrace himself, his family, and his coun- try, by such an. ignominious death, prefers to die by his own hands. 4'— At the time of receiving sentence of death, and at the place of execution, he extlaimed— Vi ve le Empereur— After their bo- dies had hung the usual time, they were taken down and buried in the Catholic burial ground, near this city — They were both 28 years of age. Beury was a cannonier in the French artillery, and forced into it by the Conscription— Duhois belonged to the Marine, and was taken at Gua. daloupe. An eagle, of an extraordinary siae and fierce- ness, was lately killed at Moyeuvre, department of the Moselle It attacked a man who had alight- ed from his horse to pick up something fiom tha ground ; and notwithstanding he repeatedly strugk jt, and called out for assistance, would not relin- uish his hold, until some peasants ran up and ^ ispatched it. MISCELLANEOUS. We feel pleasure in publishing the following interesting statement, relative to a late trial at ' Derry, which has been communicated to us by a respectable Correspondent there :— « On the 84th March, Dtniel and John M- Lu- cas weie tried, and found guiltv, as mentioned in a late Paper, of enticing Wm. Hall, ?. young Ld, to steal hats from his father, and receiving them from him at a very low value; after which, they used to allure the lad to drink and gamble v : rt them, until they thus inveigled the little rrion.' y they had given him back again. The circum- stances which which led to ; he discovery of die fraud, were these:— By the good providence " of God, that profligate young man went to hear a Sermon in the Methodist Preaching-' hoase of Derrv, which was attended with such good effert, that 1 e went home in tears, and taking his parent? uo stairs, he there confessed with unfeigned sorrov", that he had been for years past in the habit nf taking fine hats out of" his father's shop, and sell- ing them at a low price to the M'Lucas's; the father very readily forgave the prodigal, and re- joiced to see such tokens of his contriuon and re- formation. " The next day, information living been given before the Mayor, he imprisoned the two culprits, who ailedged, thai being competitors in the same business, Mr. Hall had bribed his son to destroy' ' their charaflers; the young man, however, made an affidavit, completely exonerating his father from snch an imputation, and staing, that his confession was qntiiely owing : o the efieft of the Sermon upon his mind. He was, however, c< re- mitted to Jail as an evidence, where be and the culprits remained four months, during which time, I visited him by his own desire, an. J found him deeply penitent, reading his Bible, and seeking ths pardon of his sins with earnestness and devotion. When the trial came on, they endeavoured to invalidate the lad's testimony, by the black history of his past life ; but this attempt lost all its force by the young man's candid confession of his past folly, and praising God for his present refornta. tinn. The Ilun. Baron M'Clelhssd, who sat on the Bench, asked the youth what it was which first moved him to make, the confession he had done ? he answered, " It was a sermon 1- heard, my Lqrd." " Was it a Methodist sermon V' said the Judge. " It wis, my Lord." " By whom was it pr, ached V' » By Mr. A." " Where did he preach it J" " In the Methodist Preaching- hou. se of this City." « Then," said his Lordship, « if the sermon had such an effett upon vou, nod. Hi; t you can tell us the subjeft ?" « Yes," replic.: t! ,- lad, " I thank God I can ; it was Peter' j... iyj0i. Jesus Christ, and repenting afterwards fir,<. mercy." An attempt was then made to c. i: iII question his having been at the D& thodbi. prefc- ing that night; but this having also failed, r; » Hon. Baron addressing the Jury, observed, . t " whatever the young man's past life may h ve been, it is evident a change has taWn ' place upon him, and, for my part, I am penYchy satisti^ d o< the truth " f his evidehce." The jf. ry shewed they were- cf the same mind, bv immcdiilely le- turning a verdift of guilty, and » ; • f>; ivmers i^ W" sentenced to twelve ' months imprisonment, and to be publickiy whipped through the slreeis of Derry, the latter pan of which sentence- I since : aw ( not without emotions of pity, though richly merited) carried into execution. I trust the e:; Jmple will have a good effeft, both upon themselves and others. Fxtrafl; of. a Letter from C, uricL- on- Suir. Notwithstanding the capital convictions which have so recently taken place at the assizes ac C'lonmel and Waterford, we are sorry to find that the" system of Carhvatisi. i continues to pre- vail vvith undiminished terror in the neighbour- hood of Carrick- on- Suir, where the devoted pea- sants ( in many ins ances) like the deluded In- dians,. worship their savage lenders more through fear than love! An old man of the lowest class; the opposite neighbour of J^ an, ( who some weeks ago was most inhumanly murdered in the sujmibs of tliat town) horror s'. ruck at the sight of the mutilated carcase of Lis intimate, exclaim- ed at the wake, that if the wire could identify the murderers of her husband, she ought to swear against them. In consequcnce of those words, he was dragged. from his'bed on the night, of Monday last, the 30th iust. to the outside of his cabin door, and there beat most inhumanly until left for dead ; his daughter threw herself on the body of her aged parent, to save him from their blows, aud was also cut dreadfully in the head, and beat with savage barbarity. His son, who slept in a house adjoining, rushed one armed with a pitchfork to their defence, and in some degree succeeded in putting ths ' assailants to flight, and as it appears must have inflicted a severe wound on some one of the party, a too h, belonging to one of the villains, fresh torn from its socket, with the flesh of ' tie gum largely ad- hering to it, having been, as it is supposed, thrust out with the point of the pitchfork, having been found at the door. Application was made early next morning by the . poor woman so severely beat, to Counsellor Herbert, who with Captain Blake, of the North Mayo Militia, a Magistrate of the County, proceeded to the sp it, and, on information giyen by the pld man, secured a person of the name of Hiikey, under very cor- roborating suspicious circumstances, who has, we hear, been idenified by the old man, Read, whose life, we Hear, is despaired of. Same night, at Motbil, two miles the o'. her side of Carrick, in the county Waterford, the house of an industrious man, who had been warn • ed by the Caravats a week before, to throw up his farm, was surrounded, but having expected their attack, so well had he secured the entrance, that they found it impracticable to force admit- tance, whereupon they effmbed upon the roof of the house, and stripping the thatch from about the chimney, they fired down through the breach, and shot dead a fine boy of three years old, at the mon* nl vainly clinging for protection round the neck of its unfortunate mother, who tar ad- vanced in a state of pregnancy, has been reJuccd to a state that leaves little hope that she can long survive the event.
