Donning- Street, AprilA. DISPATCHES, of which the following are extracts, have heen received from the Earl of Wellington, addressed to the Earl of Liverpool. Ehas, March 13, 1812. I moved the head- quarters from Frenada on the 6th, and arrived here on the 11th instant. There are none of the enemy's troops in the field in Estremadura, excepting that part of the 5th corps not in the garrison of Badajoz, the head quarters of which are at Villa Franca, and a detaeli- Jnent, consisting of about a division, under Gen. Datican, whose head- quarters are at La Serena. The enemy have made no movement, and I have heard of no operation of importance since I addressed your Lordship last. Ac- cording to the last accounts, Marshal Soult was in the lines before Cadiz. Camp before Badajoz, March 20. According to the'intention which I announced to your Lordship, I broke up the cantonments of the army on the 1,5th and 16th instant, and invested Badajoz, on the left of the River Guadiana, on the 16th, with the 3d, 4th, and light divisions of infantry, and with a brigade of Lieutenant- General Hamilton's division on the right. These troops are under the command of Marshal Sir William Beresford and Lieutenant- Gencral Picton. We broke ground on the fid- lowing day, and have established * a parallel within 200 yards of tire outwork called the Picurina, which embraces the whole of the south- east angle of the fort. The work has continued ever since with great celerity, notwithstanding the very bad weather which we have had since the 17th.— The enemy made a sortie yesterday from the gate called La Trinidad, 011 the right of our attack, with about 2,000 men. They were almost immediately driven in without effecting any object, with considerable loss, by Major- Gen. Bowes, who commanded the guard in the trenches. We lost upon this occasion a very promising officer, Captain Cuthbert, Aid- de- Camp to I. ieu ten ant- General Kcton, killed; and Lieutenant- Colonel Fletcher was slightly wounded, hut 1 hope that he will soon be able to resume his duties. I have not yet got the returns, but 1 believe that our loss since the commencement of these operations, amounts to 120 men killed and wounded.— On the same day that Badajoz was invested, Lieutenant- General Sir Thomas Graham crossed the Guadiana with the 1st, 6th, and 7th divisions of infantry, and General Slade's and General Le Merchant'! brigades of cavalry, and directed his march upon Valverde nnd Santa Martha, and thence towards Llerena; whil Lieutenant- General Sir Rowland Hill, with the 2d and Lieut.- General Hamilton's divisions, and Major- General Long's cavalry, marched from his cantonments near Albuquerque upon Merida, and thence upon Almendralojo, These movements induced General Drouet to retire from Villa Franca upon HornaChos, in order, I conclude, to be in communication with General Darican's division, which was about La Serena. I have heard from Sir Thomas Graham anH Sir Rowland Hill to the 19th inst. The former was at Los Santos and 2afia, with General Slade's cavalry at Villa Franca; and the » latter at Almendrnlejo. Lieut.- Gen. Sir Rowland Hill took three officers and a few hussars prisoners in Merida. I have reports from the neighbourhood of Ciudad Rodrigo of the 17th inst. The enemy had sent a small detachment to Bejar, principally with a view, to plunder; but there was no appearance of any immediate movement. The 6th divi- sion had moved from Talavera, through the Puerto del Pico, 011 the 8th and 9th instant; and the 4th division, on the same days, from Toledo through the Guadarratna; and the first division only remained on the Tagus, near Talavera. — LONDON, TUESDAY, April 7. Advices were yesterday received from America to the 4th ult. They bring the proceedings of Congress down t the 29th of February. The new taxes required to meet the present exigencies of the United States appear to bare created much discussion, one of them which expected would have been most productive, Tor imposing a duty on all import." 1 bad been rejected. The National J. I. « ; « rrtcir, the organ of the Government, in speaking of the rejection of this tax, charges the Members of the House of Representatives with inconsistency, in first recommending war measures, and then withholding the supplies by which aloue they can be carried* into effect. The same paper contradicts the rumour of a treaty being negotiating between Mr. Foster anrl [ Mr. Monroe 011 the basis of the unratified treaty of 1806; and adds, that a reconciliation between Great- Britain and America never appeared at a greater distance than at present. A loan of 11 million of dollars for the service of the present year has heen voted, but the motion for raising a permanent force of 20,000 men has been rejected. Bv an arrival yesterday from Cadiz, letters were received to the 20th ult. ' They state, that on the 17th Soult left the lines with nine battalions; after which the enemy renewed their fire upon the city with as little mischief as formerly. Iiis principal object 011 this occasion was suspected to he to cover his real weakness. It was known at Cadiz, that Lord Wellington had commenced ihe siege of Badajoz; and it- was thought the French were so destitute of provisions, that they could attempt nothing with success against the allies. A rumour was afloat, that a proposition had heen innde to the British, Government, to furnish the Spaniards with clothing and equipments . for 100,000 meli, by wav of loan; and the expectation was, that such proposal would be acceded to. By an article in a Hamburgh paper from Trieste of the 17th of Feb. it appears llmt the Governor- General resident there had announced at the theatre the Imperial permission for the re- cstablislnnent of commerce both bv land and vater. ' I bis concession lias been for a long time in agita- tion, and among the demonstrations of joy 011 the occasion, the city was to be illuminated on the same evening. A pa- ragraph from Naples of the 18th of Feb. mentions that the Royal guard and other troops collected in that city and its neighbourhood, had been reviewed by King Joachim prepa- ratory to engaging in active operations. Letters of a late date have been received from Constan- tinople, which speak of the high probability of peace be- tween Turkey and Russia. The troops of the Governor of Egypt, under the personal command of one of his sons, had taken possession of Judda, and were making a successful progress. ' The following is an extract of a letter from an Officer before Badajoz, dated the 21st ult.:—" It had been an notinced to Lord Wellington, that a new title,— that of Marquis of Torres Vedras,— was conferred 011 him by the Portuguese GovernnietlT. His Lordship had been much in- disposed, but his health was perfectly re- established at the commencement of the siege of Badajoz. When the enemy made the sortie, lie selected several Irish regiments to meet him, and they are said to have marched to the attack to the tune of " St. Patrick's Day in the Morning." They fought with ihe utmost enthusiasm on the occasion, and the 23d Portuguese Regiment equally distinguished itself against the enemy 011 St. Patrick's day.' Saturday being the day when the Quarterly Report of the state of the King's malady was made by the Queen's Council to the Privy Council, all the members attended at Windsor, and after receiving the testimony of the Physicians, made up the Report) the substance of which is understood to be, " that his Majesty's bodily health. is as igood as it has been at any former period of the complaint, that his mental, health is as much deranged as it has heen at any time; that none of the physicians expect that his Majesty will recover, yet nona of them entirely and absolutely despair." About 16 American seamen were in September last seized at lifcntzic, and marched to Antwerp to man the French fleet. Their liberation was refused to the American Mi- nister, who, on urging for the freedom of one individual ( Mr. Soper, of Boston) on the ground of old age, was an- swered, " If he is not too old for a merchantman, he Mill do to senc ou board a pnan of war." All speculation with regard to the destination of the L'Orient squadron lias at length been removed by the arrival of French Papers to the 3d instant, announcing that the squadron anchored in Brest Roads on the 29th ult. after capturing some prizes, but of what description is lint stated The only vessels which are known to a certainty to have been captpred by the enemy are three West Indiamen. The French Papers contain no news from the Peninsula. Bona- parte remained at St. Cloud on the 31st ult. » Lord Wm. Stuart, Captain of the Conquestador has sent a letter of thanks, and a pair of pistols mounted with his arms and crest, to Mr. Preux, a French Commissary, for the handsome manner in which he offered assistance to the Conquestador, while aground lately on the coast of France. The Lord Mayor has appointed a Common Hall to be held to- morrow, to receive the Sheriffs' report of the Prince Regent's answer relative to the Livery Petition. The fol- lowing is a statement of what transpired on Wednesday last. The Prince, in answer to the application of the Sheriffs to learn at what time he would receive the Petition, said, " I shall receive your Petition at my Levee, to- morrow se'nnight, in the usual way." » One of the Sheriffs addressed the Prince in the following words:—" Will your Royal Highness allow us, officially placed, as we are, in your Royal presence, as the organ and servants of the Livery of London, humbly to ask whether it is intended to receive the Deputation appointed bv the Common Hall, at the Levee, to present their Address?" The Prince Regent answered: " There are certain forms attending that; but I think the best way will be for me to communicate with the Secretary of State, who wjll inform you." Tn consequence of this answer, the Sheriffs waited 011 Mr. Ryder on Friday after- noon, who informed them, " their Petition would be re- ceived like other Petitions from Town or Country." The waste lands in England, capable of cultivation are estimated at 20 millions of acres.— The Grand Juries at the Stafford, Worcester, and Oxford Assizes, have agreed to petition tliG Legislature for a General Inclosure Act.

It is also staled that the greatest discontent prevailed all overbite continent, in consequence of the extended conscription." A Mail from Cadiz has arrived, by which advices have been received to the 2t> th ult. They bring information tlmt the enemy have of late kept up a considerable fire ft- » m their lines, but fortunately without doing anv material damage, the greater part oi' their shells falling into the sea. It was supposed at Cadiz that the enemy would shortly raise the siege, and, in the event of the fall of Badajoz, this ap- pears extremely probable. They are said to suffer much for wm of provisions, and a scarcity likewise began to be felt at Cadiz, but this had been removed by the arrival of ten American ships with 25,000 barrels of flour, which bad loweied the price of that necessary article from 21 to IT dollars, per barrel. To prevent the introduction of Sup- plies to the enemy, the Regency have declared the whole country, from Santa Maria to Ayamonte, in a state of blockade, which it is Inped we have cruiiers at hand suffi- cient to enforce. Under their present circumstances, the Spaniards Cannot have a more powerful auxiliary than- famine; and such is the state of desolation to winch the enemy have reduced the country, that all cultivation is nearly at a stand. The new Regency has been installed, and a new Consu- ttrtirtH promulgated, iu which Ferdinand VII is recognised astiic rightful Sovereign of Spain, and the succession is de- clared to be in his heirs, anil those of his brother Don Carlos, and failing of them in the person of the Princess of Brazil and her sister. The Priucsss, lately Queen of Etruria, her son, and the consort of Bonaparte, who might derive some title to tlie throne of Spain from the House of Naples, if sortie 30 « r 40 persons nearer to tbu throue were extinct, arc declared incapable of . succeeding; and the Cortes likewise reserve to themselves the power of excluding from the succession any person or persons who may be in- capable or governing, or who may have done any tiling to merit being deprived of the Crown.

On Wednoudfty in the House of Lords, Earl Stanhope observed that he wished to call their Lordships' SUA « • « « . « » « to a very'important subject. With respect to persons holding certain " leligious tenets, there were two opinions, the one that they should be admitted to hold civil offices, and the other that they should be. disqualified from holding offices; l et both parties were agreed in the justice of Toleration. Upon this latter point, however, in consequence of some reoent circums. ances, tnanv Protestant Dissenters, and even some Members of the Established Church, were liable to much oppression; to relieve them from which, he bad pre- pared a Rill, but thought it better not to name a dav for ' csenting it until after the discussion on tiie Claims of his lijestv's Roman Catholic subjects in Ireland. '") is stated that, at a Meeting of the principal Dissenters, c( livened by Mr. W. Smith, a few days ago, for the purpose o ascertaining whether the Catholic Question had their siport or not, they stated to him," T hat they had no desire j- more political power:— Fhat they were contented to ve the laws relative to Toleration properly executed ; but ev conceive them to have been departed from lately in 10 or three judicial cases.*— That they had lived happily uder . the present Protestant form of- Constitution, and that ley did not wish for such a change in it. as they conceived .• oiil'l be produced by connecting Catholic principles with V otestant.''

The Polish reghnteiits arc rtrdong the trrtops 1 that tiave been withdrawn from Sftjiin ; they will be useful to Bonaparte in the North, and it is clearly seen that he now affects to treat the Poles with the greatest regard, and that a most laboured panegyric is pronounced upon the Polish troops. The circumstance ot the French having a large force oil the Vistula is particularly noticed ; and it is followed tip by an Observation, that the French penetrated regions in the North which the Romans had never visited. No notice is taken'of Bonaparte's intended departure from Paris, nor perhaps Will it be announced in the French Papers, but there is- little doubt that he is on the eve of setting out for the Norths • » Accounts were yesterday received that the King of S. we- den had issued ail order for restoring the amount of the sales of the Carlsham ships to'the owners, and directing that all vessels, seized under similar circumstances, should be given . up.

Same day, Samuel Bradley, Gent; of Lficester iii the 69th ear of his agfi. Lately, Mr. Fdward Ilextall, of Leicester Forest, farmer and grazier, iu the 62nd year of his age.

Lately, Mrs. Long, senior, of Banbury, aged 70. prudent i for he could it > t al'ow it to be either wise or pru- dent, or even decent, that we should think of sending tire children of odr poor to be taught the doctrines dfoiir Estab- lished Chorch by any prrson whatever", however resjitciaBle he might be, w ho himself denied the truth of those Doctrines. Let lis, as tlie Noble Lord ( Lilford) had suggested. t? y this questldn, as questions, indeed, were, often best tried. By consi-, dering, for one moment, hrfw we should approve such a pla'i of education, it it were proposed to us. Was there a ( ieurte- man present who woitld think he acted a parent's part, if he were to allow his son tii receive his early religions impres « ions from a preceptor of another religious persuasion i Could any Gentleman, himself a member of tlieChUrch of England, think, of entrusting the most important of dll objects, the religious instruction of his child, to a master who should hold the doctrines of the Church of England to be untrue? Surely, said Mr. T. we should ill discharge our duty to our poor, our duty to our Established Church, and our duty to out incom- parable constitution, of which that Church forms an essential and inseparable part, if we were satisfied with providing for the poor such a system of instruction as this : a system, fro d which the. doctrines of the National Religion are declaredly excluded. Mr. Twining . expressed his entire concurrence with the opi- nion of the noble Lord ( Lilford) iu respect to the benefits of education, and our duty to confer those benefits upon the poor. He was sure there could not be in such an assembly a^ the present, an assembly composed of educated and enlightened persons, of persons enlightened by education, any advocate* of thai philosophy which deprecates the dissemination of all knowledge whatever amongst the lower orders of the people. Indeed there no longer existed a » v groffod on which this sophistfy- could rest ; for we might be assured, thai if we failed to educate the poor, there were others who would not be. so remiss. He must do the poor of this country tue justice to say, that as far as his observation bad gone, there did exi t amongst them a religious disposition, particularly a very ge- neral desire to procure religious and moral instruction for their children. These excellent inclinations could not remain un- gratified from any want of the means of instruction. It could not be unknown to the Noble Lord in the chair; that the country did abound with the means of instruction ; of instruc- tion easy an4 gratuitous; of instruction recommending itself by the most inviting allurement?. The question therefore 110 longer was, whether it were expedient to Instruct the poor, or more expedient to allow thein to remain fiir ever In ig- norance;— but it was this ,* shall we receive the ri.- lijg genera- tion of the poor; and instruct them in fife doctrines of our National Church i fir shall we compel them to attach themselves to those, who must, we know, impress them with opinionsani feelings adverse to f hat Church ? Nor should it be forgotten, that every present secession from our establishment !•. ill be multiplied against us,' ail hundred fold, in the course of a few generations. Willi these impressions lipflri Ills mind, he thought the Noble President had truly described the object of the National Society, when he stated It to be " an object of national interest and importance." Most fervently did he hope it would receive natiOndl encouragement and support; and then lie did believe it would prove the happy means of avert- ing from fliis country, on some future day, a recurrence of the greatest of all national calamities. Mr. Twining concluded by saying, that he should consider his contribution to the funds of such a society, a very insuf- ficient service, and merely as an earnest of his endeavours to promote its views in that part of the couuty in which he resided. Roads presented at the Quarter Sessions, on Thursday last.—' Road in the parish of Syvvell, by Mr. Rokeby ; and road in the parish of Pattishali, by Mr. Harrison. Saturday se'npight, Wm. Bird, who was convicted at the late Cambridgeshire nssizes of forging " and uttering a Wind- sor and Berkshire tiank note, Was executed at Cambridge, in the presence of au immense concourse of spectators. A man of the name of Botterill was condemned to death a twelvemonth ago, at Leicester, for robbing a house near Barrowj but his sentence was changed to 14 yeari' trans- portation, and he was shortly afterwards sent to the hulks. It litis, however, turned out that the robbery was committed by other persons, who have confessed the Crime; and Botterill is sent for from the bulks, and his pardon is expected. At Peterborough sessions, on Wednesday last, D. T. Myers, late. of Stamford, draper, was tried for an unnatural offence.— This wretched man was acquitted at Lincoln, on a similar charge, in consequence of an insufficiency in the cor- roborative part of the testimony.— At Peterborough, how- ever, the direct- evidence given by his accomplice, !'. rowe, a tailor's apprentice, being fully supported bv circumstantial proof, the miserable prisoner was, after a long trial, con- victed of the capital crime, and was sentenced to be hanged. The execution will probably take place in the course of a few days. On Monday last was committed to the county gaol by .1. P. Clarke, Esq. John Brorcnsnwd, and Eleanor Cooper, charged with stealing from a boat at Braunstoii^ divert tirlpfi ni" « » p] m: cL Eligible Situation. FREEHOLD ESTATE.

At a meeting of the trustees of Dunstable Free- School on Tuesdav last, Mr. John Puddephatt was appointed Mas- ter in tlie riio. ii of Mr. Juhn Gresham, deceased. We feel great pleasure in being enabled to present our readers with the following speech delivered by Mr. T'wiuin at the meeting lueldiiii the County- hall, on Tuesday se'nnight, for the purpose of promoting in this County the plan of the National Society for educating the Children of the Poor in the Principles of the Established Church ;— Mr. Twining began by saying, that after the very able speech of the noble Lord ( Lrlford) he felt, and he feared the Meeting would feel, how superfluous any observation from him must be ; but it was the great satisfaction which his Lord- ship's statement had given him, that induced him to say a few words. Jle certainly . had expected, from the terms of the judicious address which called the present meeting, that the subject to be brought forward was one which every member of'the Established Church must be disposed to support. The noble Lord's most satisfactory statement had completely realized his own expectation iu this respect, and he1 could now say, without hesitation, that he approved of the National Society most cordially : that, it was, in his estimation, ; Society most urgently called for by existing circumstances and he could not contemplate the extension of its operations to this part of the kingdom, without expressing his conviction, that the County of Northampton would long feel indebted to his Lordship in the chair, and to the Lord Bishop of Peter- borough, for the part which their Lordships had taken upon the ' present occasion. It appeared, from what had been said, that the National Society purposed doing two things,— firstly, to educate the children of the poor in the principles of the Established Church; and, secondly, to effect this through the ministry of persons them » elve5 members of the Established Church. Mr. Twiiring said, it was this characteristic feature of the new Society that he so particularly approved ; this happy com- bination of au itud so good and great, w ith means So wise aud ( J3T The Prisoners in the County Gaol desire to return thanks to the Geutlemru of the Grand Jury at the Quaiiir Sessions for £ 1.
