SI 9) Hon-. ra Glen House, Jan. i. IRISH TOBACCO DUTY REOtlLAtlON BILL. The Earl of LAUDERDALE wished to call the attention of the House to a Bill then lying on their Lordships' Table," for the Regulation of the Duties on Tobacco in Ireland. He was aware that it was not customary to piint bills of this description, nor was he in the habit of reques'ing the House to depart from that principle. But, where clauses were introduced of an extraordinary nature, he conceived, they ouglit to be printed for the general information of theii Lordships. In the Bill then before them two clauses of a most Unprecedented nature were introduced. By these a minimum was not only established, but it was es- tablished in the most exceptionable manner. He I did not trunk their Lordships would wtsh to pass such a Bill, blind- folded, and would therefore move, " That it be printed for the information of the House." The Earl of ROSS said, the proposition of the Noblf Lord could answer no other purpose than to d.- lay the progress of the Bill, which, it was of importance, should be passed as speedily as pos- sible. The Noble Lord had in his possession a copy of the clauses which he conceived so objec- tionable, and, therefore, the printing of the Bill would not afford hirn any additional information on the snbjeft. The Earl of LAUDERDALE said, as the mo- tion was opposed by the Noble Lord, he would state to the House the two clauses to syhich he objeded, for the purpose of shewing the nee. esity of having the Bill printed. By the first it waw enacted, " that all bond's, warrants, or other se-.:-'*' rities, given for any tobacco, at a less rate- than what was paid for it on importation, together with the excise duty, and two- pence pes pound addition, shall be utterly void and of no efFsCt; and no ac- tion shall be sustained thereon, in any Court of Justice." By the next clause it was provided, " that when tobacco was sold, for ready money, for any lower pricc than as before stated, then it should be lawful for the person so buying, to re- rover from the vender a sum equal to the full va- lue." What was to be recovered ? Penalties to the artj iunt of the full value of the commodity sold. But they were not informed by what means the fu'l value was to be ascertained. He defied any man to unders snd it. Those who framed the clause might have meant the minimum price— but many < ither constructions ceuld be put upon it, equally capable of being supported. I he Earl of ROSS said, the clause in question was similar to one insetted by the Iri » h Parlia- ment, in a Tobacco Duty Bill, in 17SI. The Earl of LAUDERDALE observed, he ! iad not presumed to mention that statute; but if iuch an enaClmeat were to be found in it, it struck aim as b? ing extremely deficient. On the question, " that this Bill be printed," : he House divided, when tlieie appeared, Contents 3— Non" Oontenu 6— Majority 3. The Bill afterwards went through a Committee, ind was reported without amendment. The Order fox the Call of the House " having been deferred to this day, strangers were not ad- mitted to the Gallery until half past five o'clock. During their exclusion a discussion took place upon the q- iestion, Whether the Order for the Call should stand for next week, or be postponed for two months ?— and a divison took place by which it wa « decided that the House should be called over on this day two months. On the admission of strangers, Sir JOHN NEWPORT moved— " That there be laid before the House a derailed account of the Expenditure of .€ 10,205, 12s. issued from the Treasu- ry of Ireland, for the insertion of Proclamations in the Dublin Gazette and other Newspapers." In making this motion, the Right Hon. Gen- tleman reprobated the wasteful manner in which the public money was expended, ky the publica- tion of these Proclamations, which, he said, were j frequently given to the Proprietors of Newspapers I as a ienumeration for their services in supporting the measures of the Government. Mr. W. POLE felt no disposition to objeCl to, the motion, although the Right Hon. Gentleman had given no regular notice of his intention to bring it forward. With respeCt to the wasteful manner in which the Right Hon. Gentleman had stated the public money had been squandered, he bad only to observe, that during the last year, for ! the first time, the expenditure for the purposes alluded to had been much less than on any former occasion, having been within the sum allowed by Parliament for that purpose. When the Right Hon. Gentl- man (^ ir John Newport) was Chan- cellor of the Exchequer for Ireland, the expendi- ture was £ 17,000 per annum, and was never less than £ 15 000. The newspaper in which the Pro- clamations were generally inserted was the Dublin Journal, which, it was known had been the channel through which the Irish Government had issued their orders for fifty years. As to the assertion, that the Irish Government had rewarded or en- couraged the conductors of newspapers who had thought proper to support their measures, by any unnecessary expenditure of public money, he begged leave to give it the most unqualified con- tradiction. Mr. PARNELL gave full credit to the Right . Hon. Gentleman for the economical measures winch had been pursued by tiie present Lrovern- incnt of Ireland. He, however, observed that it had been candidly admitted by his predecessor in office ( Lord Wellington) that those proclamations were given to certain Papers, as a reward for their advoca. ir. g the measures of Government. The motion was agreed to, and the account t: rdered. ADDRESS TO THE PRINCE REGENT. " TO HIS R. II. THE PRINCE 01? " WALES, REGENT OP THE UNITED KINGDOM. The humble arid dutiful address and petition of the Lori Mayor, A Mermen: and Commons of the City of London ii| Common Council assembled. May it please, your Royal Highness, " We, tlL- Lord- Mayor, Aldermen, and Common- of the City- of London, in Common Council ass%.- bled, hlimbly approach your Royal Highness, dutifuilj to' represent our deep sense of the difficulties and dan- gers impeding over tile count! y, ahd anxiously to in- vite your beneficent attention to the complaints and sri- ievanoes of '. our afflicted'but faithful subjects. " Fourteen months hare elapsed since vour Koyal HighneS8 acceded to the Regency of these k ngdonis, at which time we felt it our duty to submit to you a statement of abuses which had taken root in the vari- ous departments of the Government, the speedy cor- rection and removal of which we deemed essential to the prosperity and safety of the Empire; and we do again present ourselves before yortr Royal Highness, to express our unfeigned sorrow, that dm Lng d. is in- terval no efficient measures have been adopted by your Ministers, calculated to satisf,- the wits of your Pew • j , « pie; but tint on the conti.. iy l'• j. ime. « « '.,< j) WK » ices and the same false principles of Gtswu. ivn i;.. ve bcci tenaciously pursued and tnfoi ced, tlier.^ iy trMio'j con- tumely to injury, and extinguishing the sprli. g of pub- lic energy iu a free nation. We have continued to witness the same system of frofligaey iu t!:.. expendi- ture of public money ; the same system of governing by undue influence and corruption ; the sat^ c system of delusion in regard to the circulating me. ii'lni and finances of the cmrhtry; the same system of arbitrary and grievous assessment and collection of taxes, by whipk industry is thwarted and liberty violated; the system of introducing into the h;- at t of the coun " try foreign troops; the same system of persecuting the Preis, by which the value of free discussion on nati- onal topics is lost to Prince and People; and finally, the same system of coercive restrictions on the free- dom of commerce, by which many of our merchants and manufacturers have been iiJvolved in ruin, aod flourishing districts reduced to beggar?. " As faithful and loyal subjects, and : is the'Re- presentatives of the first city in your Empire, we feel the deepest affliction in being compelled to reiterate this enumeration of the mal- practices and mistaken jiiinciples of your Ministers; we should howevei, compromise that sense of public'duty, and that cha- racter of frankness, which appertain to us as freemen and Britons, were we to disguise the truth and fdr- bear to express our conviction, that your confidential advisers have plunged this great tyid once flourishing Empire into an abyss from which we can be rescued only by radical reforms, and a total change in our do- mestic Government and foreign policy. " In a crisis, therefore, which involves the destiny of the greatest Empire of these or past times— of an Empire which is Wessed by Providence with unrqual- led natural adyantages— and which possesses a peo- ple that in all ages have bravely secured their pros- p.- rity on the solid basi3 of public liberty, - are feel that we should justly merit the reproaches of our country and posterity, if, at such a crisis, we were to refrain from laying before your Royal Highness a faithful representation of the public grievances, and expres- sing our painful apprehensions for the welfare and the very existence of tine nation ;• we theiefore pray, " That your Royal Highness will be graciously pleased to dismiss from your Councils those Ministers who have proved themselves so undeserving of the I confidence of your people, and call to the Adminis- tration of the Government men of public character and patriotic principles} whose enlarged and liberal policy is suited to the enlightened character of the nation, whose wisdom and energy would prove equal to the exigencies of the times, whose inclination would lead them to secure the affections of the people, and whose public spirit would stimulate them to ef- fect those Reforms in the Commons House of Par- liament, ami in the various branches of the State, which at this perilous crisis are absolutely necessary to the restoration of national prosperity, and not less essential to the honour and true interests of the Crown, than to the security and true glory of the Empire.— Signed by order of the Court, & c. The Answer of his Royal Highness appeared in our laat. There has not, happened in Scotland, for many years, a more remarkable occurrence than the destruc- tion of the estate of Culbin, in Morayshire, which was occasioned by the sand being blown in such quan. ity from the adjoining hills of Marytown, as entirely to cover the mansion house, orchards, gardens, and every part of the estate.— This calamity was owing to the pulling of bent ( or sta' woi t) in great quantities, which loosening the soil, left it at the mercy of the winds, which, it a short time, destroyed this fine estate.— An Act of Pailiament was made, which is still iti force, to prevent the pulling up of bent by the roots- pity it had not been previous to this sad catastrophe The estate of Culbin was one of the finest and most fertile in the county of Moray, and, for its fertility, wai styled the Granary of Moray. It - s now 689 years since the estate of Culbin was given by F. d< Moravia, the progenitor of all the Morays, to hit youngest son Richard of Culbin. The young German Gentleman of the name of Rontgen, who left England about a twelvemonth since for Africa, in order to prosecute discoveries in the interior of that country, has, we are sorry to learn, been murdered by the Arabs, before he had proceed- ed any great distance fi'o. n Mogadore, where he spent som^ time in perfecting himself in the Arabic language. He was a promising young man, and an enthusiast In the cause in which he was lost, and supposed to un- derstand the Arabic language, better than any Euro- pean who ever before entered Africa. At an eurly age he formed the plan of going to that country, and gave up his connexions and a competency in Germany, to prosecute his intentions. His father was a ch, tr- ader well known in Europe, who uised himself fio- A obscurity to the greatest Celebrity by his talent fcr mechanics; he was at one time worth a million, but. ruined by the French revolution. The Church of St. Pellerin, Department of th? Loire, was, on tiie 22d oi February, struck by lightning, and burnt to the ground before the flames eould be extinguished. BELFAbf COM. M Li; CI A L CIIUOMCLR. LONDON, Triday, May 1. A vessel is arrived at Falmouth in 13 days from Cadiz, which she left on the 10th ult— She has brought the confirmation of the capture of Seville by General Ballasteros. An account of the fall of Badajoz had reached Cadiz, and the raising the siege of Cadiz was ex- pected to take place immediately. A conspiracy to murder the Emperor of Russia has been discovered, and the principal conspirators arrested. The particulars are not yet known ; the faCt is all that is mentioned in the letters from Gottenburgh of the 25th ult. At the Meeting stiled Merchants, Manufac- turers, See. of the City of London, held at the City of London Tavern, on the 25th ultimo, we apprehend but few people attended except those concerned in the East India Company's Shipping, such as ships' husbands, India agents, wholesale grocers, brokers, & c.; and those men, consider, ing their own immediate interest likely to be af- fected by the destruction of the India monopoly, have the assurance to place their situation in op. position to the general good of the country, and very modestly say to the public, « if yon take from the India Company their exclusive Charter, give to us, resident in London, a monopoly of the whole ofthe Indian trade !"— Such presump- tion and illiberality surely cannot be countenanced by any respectable Merchants or inhabitants whose interests h-. inot altogether blinded their judg- ment Wfe have nti doubt but that, when the of mdia and China are laid open to the nation at large, the capital of the kingdom will not suffer, as it is probable the business will chiefly remain in London, aud be so much ex- tended as to make up for the proportion of the trade that will be carried oil at the out- ports— ( Courier ) Letters from Nottingham mention the following outrage :— On Monday night last about 11 o'clock, Mr. Trentham, of the house of Treiitham, TierfcyV, and Morton, in- the weaving trade, was way- laid on- his return home by two ruffians. Just as he was about to step up to his door, one of them placed himself lie- fore him, and presenting a pistol, shot him through the left breast: the assassins then made their escape.

The Report of the Committee of the House of Co nmons upon the American Claimants' Petition, states, that the Commissioners appointed for in- vestigating the claims of British Creditors, had made adjudications thereon to the amount in the whole of ,61,420.000, have apportioned and di- vided amongst those persons the sum of £ 600,000 paid by the American Government, together with the further sum of ,659,493, which had been made as interest by investing the said principal sum in Exchequer Bills previous to its being divided amongst the claimants; and the difference between the ,€ 6J9,493 so divided, and the rf1,420,000, $ o adjudged, together with interest on such difference from the first day of June, 1804 ( to which day the interest on the sums adjridged had, by order of the Commissioners, been calculated) constitutes the sums for which the Petitioners make the pie- tnt application.

BOXIKG— A dreadful battle took place on Monday last at Basin?, near Hartley- row, between James Colburne, a bargeman, and Henry Wil- lotighby. a coachmar, for ten guineas a side,— This battle is said to have exceeded all others in ferocity and hardihood. They wete 14 s orie men, gifted with hitting, without knowledge of science. Both were hit blind, before they had fought 20 minutes, but they, were relieved by the lancet, and the combat was renewed, until after fighting an hour and 20 minutes, when they_ were too exhaust- ed to set- K>. They, however, recovered, and fought, aliogether, two hours. It was impossible to pic- ture their visages. C'llburne won the battle, but he is not expected to survive. The loser had not quitted his bed on Wednesday. WANTON OUTRAGE. A most wanton and wicked outrage was com- mitted in the ni^ ht of . Thursday last on the pro- perty of Mr. John Drinkwater, a respectable far- mer of Bugsworth, in the Parish of Glossop, Derbyshire. His wife, who occasionally acts as a midwife, was called up at midnight, to attend a woman who was named to her j but she no soon- er opened the door than she was beset by a num- ber of ruffians who presented pistols and demand- ed a hundred pounds of her. She said there was vsry little money in the house, but what there was they might take. Upon this they rushed in, having their fa'ces disfigured, and she opened to them all the drawers and cupboards, from which they took what the liked, including twenty pounds in money, ten cheeses, twenty pair of sheets, blan- kets, pillow- cases, & c. for six beds, besides all her husband's and childrens' clothes. The ale and liquors in the cellars they drank or spilled on the place, broke pickle and preserve pots, scattering and trampling their contents, together , wiih a quantity of butter, cream, and other provisions, on the floor. All this time a fellow stood over j the husband as he lay in bed, brandishing a sword | and threatening him with instant death if he. stir- j red. The honest man lay still, and he had a I good reason for so doing, besides the sword that j glittered over his heajJ, for under it was a case ; containing two hundred pounds ia money, and j the writings of his little freehold. These the , robbers did not find. When they had done their j; work, one who seemed to be the Captain called over their numbers from 1 to 16, and all having answe-. ed they went away, carrying with them, or destroying property to the amount of nearly ttfl 50- During the robbery two of the gang kept | cuard at the door of a small cottage adjacent be. ! fng the onlf habitation ueal Mr. Briukwatei's. THE QUEEN'S DRAWING ROOM. Crowds of the Nobility and Gentry flockcd to St, James's yesterday, to pay their respects to our most amiable, virtuoui, and illustrious Queen, who, viewed either as a wife, a mother, or a benefactress of society, has ever been justly con- sidered as a model of. female excellence and per- fection. Ever since the publication of the notice of her Majesty's intention in this respect, the Fashionable World has been in a complete state of bustle, which was considerably heightened bv invitation cards, to the number of about 400, i being issued on Monday and Tuesday, by the j Prince Regent, to meet the Queen and his Royal if Sisters last night, at Cariton House, to H, full dress party. Bond- street, St. James's- street, Pall- mall, Sec. were yesterday crowded with carriages; sometimes blocked up with the higher orders pur- chasing articles of dress and ornaments for the two occasions. The Queen's jewels were remov- ed from the Bank for the purpose on Tuesday se'nnight. Preparations were made for the Draw- ing- room of yesterday, similar to a Birth- day.— Tickets of admission to the rooms at St. James's Palace, allotted to specta'ors, were issued from the Lord Chamberlain's Office, and they were in great request, the different rooms were very mtjch crowded, some of the company were obliged to go out on the covered way in the Palace- yard.— Notices were posted up, and some excellent new regulations adopted, such as allowing but one low of carriages to remain in Pall- mall and St. James's- street, for spectators ; the carriages to set down with the horses heads towards Pall- mall, instead of Cleveland- row. A party of Life Guards, the Bow- street Officers, and Police, generally attended, to regulate them, and every thing was conducted with the greatest regularity. Her Majesty, Princesses Augusta and Mary, laft the Queen's Palace about one o'clock, for the Duke of Cumberland's apartments, in St. James's Palace, where they were received by his Royal Highness, Her Majesty and the Princesses fi- nished dressing there, and after partaking of some refreshment, they proceeded w: tb their numerous ^ attendants through the Gallery, tho Ball- room, icc.~ - tp the Grand Council Chamber, where her Maj j sty proceeded to receive her numerous visi- tors and presentations, & c. with her usual affa- bility. It was extremely crowded, but it would have been more so, had it not been for a general opinion prevailing, that the crowd would be un- bearable, and numbers staid away on this ac- count. The Prince Regent went to the Drawing- Room in state, and it being the first time of his appear- ing in full state since he has had the full reins of Government, attracted a considerable crowd be- tween Carlton House and the Palace- His Roy- al Highness's procession moved in the following order : — Three carriages and pairs, the servants in their state liveries, their hats inlaid with bitie feathers. In these ear- riiget were Generals Ttar. or, iieppel, and Hammond; Masters Turner and Arbuthuot, Pages of Honour, & c.— His Royal Highness's state carriage followed, drawn by six beautiful bays, in elegHiit red morocco harness, ornamented with red ribbons. The coachman and four fc- otmen wore black velvet cages, simitar to the King's servants. At the side of the carriage and horses four state helpers walked. His Royal Highness was dressed in regi- mentals, and appeared in most excellent health and spirits. He was attended in his carriage by the Duke of Monti ose, as Master of the Horse, and Lord J. Murray, as the Lord in Waiting,— His Royal Highness was escorted by a party of the Life Guards. The procession arrived at the Palace at half past three o'clock. Earl Chol- mondeley, as Lord Steward, Earl Macclesfield and other Officers of State were in waiting at the bottom of the grand stair case, and conducted the Prince Regent to the Grand Council, where his Royal Highness paid his respects to the Queen, and remained in the room half an hour. The Drawing- room was attended by The Princess of Wales, the Duchess of York, the Prin- cess Sophia of Gloucester, the Dukes of York, Clarence, Kent, Cumberland, Sussex, Cambridge, Gloucester, and Brunswick, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, the the Lord Chancellor, the Lord Privy Seal, the First Lord of the Treasury and Chancellor of the Exchequer, the First Lord of the Admiralty, the Master General of the Ordnance the three Secretaries, the President of the Boatd of Con- trol, the Lord Steward, the Dean of Windsor, the Lord Chief Justice of the Court of King's Bench, the Lord May- or, the Lady Mayoress, . Sheriffs Birch and Heygate; the four latter were presented to the Queen ; the Recorder of London, and the Attorney- General. DRESSES.

In another part of this day's Paper, will be. found some important Swedish documents, which, as far as langaaga goes, evince a d termination to resist foreign domination ; but we shall proba- bly be in a short time better able to judge, bv the actions of the Swedish Court, to what side of Con- tinental affairs the policy of BERNADOTTE shall permit his adopted country to preponderate. In the mean time, it is w rthy of notice, that an or- der has been issued at Stockholm, and sent to the coast, " to give British ships in distress every assistance they niay require." PACKET ANOTHER BY' EXPRESS. FLAG OF TRUCE. London, Saturday, May 2. The communications between the two countries are now becoming more frequent. Thursday night, after the Post left Deal, another Flag of Trucfe arrived in the Downs from Calais. The following is our Correspondent's Letter on the subjeCt Star.) ..,,-. " DEAL, MAY 1. " Arrived last night, after post, a Flag of Truce from Calais, intended for Dover, mistook the port in a fog, and being observed by Officers of his Majesty's ship Inconstant, a boat was manned, and Lieutenant Clark wept alongside, W< whom the French Officer delivered his dispatches, which were immediately sent on shore to the AdMiral, and forwarded by express to L nden. The" Firncff Officer, after receiving an acknowledgement from the Commander in Chief ( Admiral Foley); - pro- ceeded for the opposite coast." , Nothing of course in an official shape has been suffered to transpire on the subjeCt of the above communication^, From sources of information, however, which we have generally found to have been cori'efl, we learn, that Bonaparte's anxiety- to opftfjf hegoc' 9' ion with this country at the present ® iCture is not to be regarded merely as his tjsua^ display forbearance previous to set- ting out In some great enterprize. Although every preparation was long since made for his de- parture frfcra Par.-, and he had taken leave of se- veral of 4be public functionaries, it is understood that the recent intelligence receited at Paris from all parts of Germany, has been such as to render it extremely drniBiful whether the troops of the . Confederation can be depended on if they are call, ed out to aft against Russia. If Austria was to rise in the rear of the French army ( and, we un- derstand this to be the precise ground of Bona- parte's apprehensions), there might still be some chatlce of the liberties of Europe being rescued from the gripe of the Tyrant.. That there is a kind of vacillation at present in the politics of his Cabinet, there cannot be a doubt, for his mea- sures have not b « n followed up with that promp- titude which Uiifo to characterise his former en- terprizes. In, the mean time we have received certain in- telligence from the North of Europe, that the whole of the armed force - of Norway has marched to the frontiers of Sweden. This opens a wide field of conjecture respecting the intentions of the latter. It would seem as if Bonaparte had order, ed th ® former ; o keep the Swedes in check. A little time will salve the enigma of the sentiments and views of Bernadotte. We fear they are not inconsistent with those of his late master ; yet he will naturally adopt the interests of the country over which he been placed by the'consent of the inhabitants, ns we have every reason to believe.- It gives us real satisfaction to find, that Go- vernment lave determined to extend the East In- dia trade to all the out- ports of the kingdom, not- withstanding the opposition shewn to this measure by those who are so obviously interested itfits be- ing confined to the port of London. A meeting of the Eatt tedb Proprietors was held yesterday, to which this determination was communicated, and which occasioned, as. might naturally lie ex. pefled, much dissatisfaction. The President was extremely indignant at Ministers for having re- solved to confer so great a service on the country, and attributed this to what he was pleased to call the " clamours made by the traders in the ou' » ports." He likewise endeavoured, in a strain not more consistent with decorum, to shew, " that a free import trade would not tie of any real ad- vantage to oar manufaSures. Was it li'hely, he said, " that tie natives of the East would take the goods of the manufacturers of Manchester ? or the good* of those of Glasgow and Liverpool ? Yet they petitioned Parliament to open the trade, as a m. ans of relieving them from the pressure under which they at present are. With respeft JO Nottingham, from which town a petition had been presented, would the manufacturers there be benefited by the projected measure, for they never wear stockings in India ? Birmingham and Sheffield too could hope little benefit." Now, Inflia Compap/ j^ nrhat injury tkiy ' CM possibly suf- fer, by the trade being opened to the out- ports, if neither- these nir tlte. interior manufacturing towns are to. jje benefited by it ? The fa, 51 is, th 2 East India Proprietors care for no person's iiveresu but their own, and therefore, they treat all others with contempt who would expose their unjust mo-' nopoly, and assert their legitimate right to a free trade. EMPEROR OF RUSSIA. In the extracts from the, Anholt Mail, it was stated th; tt a conspiracy against the Emperor of Ru- sia had been detected at Petersbtirgh, and the principal persons concerned in it aporehended We are not in possession of ail the details of this affair, btit several letters have been received by very respectable- Honses iff the City which men- tion some Of ( he particulars. A person of-' the name of Spiransky, who filled the office of Secre- tary to the Cabinet, and a Frenchman, are said to be authors of the plot,' in which several other* were concerned, One of whose names only is mt- rv tioned, viz. M. Magnetsky. It is stated that this conspiracy was discovered by the Emperor Alex- ander himself, and that the conspirators were, after an examination, sent off to Siberia.— The following is an extract from one of the letters which have been received upon this subject r— . " A secret correspondence has been discovered to bp going on between some of our Ministers and the French Ambassador, and through him, with the French Government. It was the Emperor Alexander himself who detected it; and immedi- ately on the Conspirators- finding themse.' ves de. feated, by some of their le- ters being intercepted, they laid a diabolical. plot to murder their Mas- ter, which fortunately was discovered before the time appointed for. its execution. Spiranilcy and Magnetsky have been arrested, and sent off to Siberia. More arrests, are every moment expect- ed to take place, for it is imagined that other persons of- the first note are implicated in the dia- bolicaljjesigji," - ' The letters from Petersburgh also state,' that the Emperor of Russia has sent orders to his Pleni- potentiaries to. sign the Preliminaries of Peace with Turkey; arid that he has ordered a new levy of 85,000 men. The former part of this state- ment must, of course, depend, upon conjecture ; with respeCt, to the latter, it is highly probable.*" j... — CATHOLIC EMANCIPATION; We understand, from unquestionable authority that the late debates and" divisions upon the Ca- tholic question have made an impression upon the mind of Mr. Perceval and his fellow Ministers, as to the force of the conviction of the rights of the Catholics, and the extent of the desire of the country to concede their claims, which has deter- mined him, as a matter of prudence, in the view of preserving his own power, to offer to the Catho- lic Body three great and most valuable branches of their present demands. 1. The removal of every existing impediment to their promotion to the highest ranks ill the army, v. 2. A similar extension of the opportunities of acquiring promotion, with respeCt to the navy. ; 3. The same advantages in the profession of the law. But he will not concede, at least for the present, the right, of being elected to seats in the House of Commons, or of sitting in the Upper House, as British Peers, or as Representative Peers of Ire- land or Scotland. It is supposed that the Catho- lics will accept these concessions in part of the rights they demand; but they will not accept therji. under any pledge or assurance, nor, indeed, are we aware that any pledge or assurance is re- quired of them, that tliey will not persevere seek- ing, by the same constitutional means as at pre- sent, a just participation of the right of sitting in both Houses of Parliament. [ PILOT. On Thursday the Queen and the Princesses Augusta and Mary retired from the Drawing- room to the Duke Cumberland's apartments in the Palace, and, after taking off their Court dresses, went to Carlton House to dinner, where they were received by the Prince Regent. At the dinner there were present, to meet the Oueen and Princesses, the Princess Charlotte of Wales, the Dutchess of Y- rk, and' Princess Sophia of Gloucester, the Dukes of York Clarence, Kent. Cumberland, Sussex, Cambridge, Gloucester, and Brunswick, Lady De Clifford, Mrs. Howe, Sec. The dinner was served up in rhe blue velvet room. After dinner a'most magnificent suit of j rooms were thrown open to receive a very nu- j merous party of distinguished personages, invit-' ed by command of the. Prince Regent to a con- | cert. There had been one of the largest assem- j blies of youth, beauty, elegance, and dignity, at j the Drawing Roorri, but on this occasion, it was j allowed that ihe assemblage never was surpassed, Ladies being in their full evening dresses, all of I course new for this princely banquet. These, to- ! gether with their glittering costly jewels, and or- j naments, by the brilliant illumination, rendered j it such a truly grand scene as is not to be describ- ed, and was not excelled, Considering the scale j it was upon, not even by the grand Fete given i by his Royal Highness last year, in honour of j the King's birth- day. The Concert concluded about half- past, eleven,' when the Royal Family retired to the room where' • they dined to supper. After which the Queen I and the Princesses returned to the Queen's Palace, j Yesterday morning they left townfor Wiiidsor. > It was arranged, that the Princess Regent, as ! her Royal Highness was determined to attend , the Drawing- Room on Thursday, should go be- fore the Prince Regent, and retire before his ap- pearance." Accordingly the Royal couple did LAW INTELLIGENCE. KING'S BENCH, DUBLIN, Mav % 1818. THE KJKO VC'SUS MATHEWS. " Mr. Speer moved . the Court on behalf* of de- fendant,' to make the conditional order of the 22i of April last absolute, grounded on the affidavit of service of said order, and certificate of no cause; which motion the Court was pleased to gran', an t ordered that the errors assigned be allowed . j the judgment against jh. e defendant", at th, a-. t j Sessions of Carrickfergus, he reversed. | To the benpyoJeri* ' arid truly charitable, it wrl f be gratifying to observe, that , the Rev.

From the ia. ee depredations committed in thi- town, some of the inhabitants have cr rne to the resolution of employing watchmen to v. ajrole tl* e streets in the neighbourhood of their premises, This measure, though by no means unnecessary now, would, we apprehend, have been more su: t. able- in November ia5t, than at this time yf the year. We have the pleasure to state, that the brig Lee, of Workington, Carson, master, which has been on sho in Redbay for above three1 weeks, was on Saturday last got off the bank, and, we are happy to add, free of any damage,* the soft sand on which she lay having somewhat protected her. A few ni ghts ago an attempt was made to steal » horse out of the stable of Robert Rowan, Esq- at the Lodge. The stable window was broken and the latch of the door forced, on jyhich a watch- dog gave the alarm, ivheii the only person in the house ( t- he gardener) Came out and saw three or hnr men with one of Mr. Rowan's horses out of the sta- ble, and back- gate forced open. He ch . Ilen-- •<{ them, on which he received a threatening ansu-.- r, and was foiced to fire, by which it appears,' from trac- ing of blood, that one of the party must have been wtrtinded. The horse was found' next mo. sin, - Resistance of this kind, made by a single man, .... to be publicly noticed.

BELFAST COMMERCIAL CHROtfIC ft OR > GI POETRY. [ For the Belfast Ccmr. ercial Chronicle.'] ENIGMA. IN days of yore, it does appear, I first began my bright earner, Like lightning o'er the plains I flew, Transported at the blood I drew; A foe to man I've often proved, Yet also as a friend been loved: I'm low, I'm tall, I'm strong, I'm weak, Am dumb for life, yet often speak; I'm rich, I'm poor, young, strong, and bold, Yet coward nrov'd, both young and old ; And still in spite of wind and weather, I'm man and beast, I'm both together. At Lodi, BONAPARTE I've been, And oft your Sire on turf and green. Of man and beast I've been the scourge, Yet both to keenest pastime urge. I've legs to move, yet, strange to tell, I, ike Fairy Prince o'er brake and fell, Swift as the breeze of Summer's morn, Aloft ' twist Heaven and Earth am borne. Disseil me— half will then unfold, A tyrant fam'd in d » ) « s of old. One- half of me yoH make your slave, Although your sole I often save. Again transpose, t'will bring to view, What husbands never think their due. My half again will shew a flower, The sweetest in fair Ros'Iind's bower; And in my half 3gain you'll find What leaves the swiftest far behind; One half of me, returning light Discloses ail to mortal's sight; One- half, a Deity explains That often fought on Uion's plains; One- half of me, I joy to feed On what is deemed a noxious weed; Cr. e- half the colour of a steed, Of old admired for warlike breed; Three- eighths of me, a dish affords To grace at meals our festive boards; Three- eighths « f me will surely shew What's called a belle, though not a beau ; Three eighths of me, a mineral bright, In which weak mortals much delight; Three- eighths a fle « t and nimble beast, On which stout huntsmen often feast; Thiee eighths, that active limb will shew, Which hurls destVuiftion on the foe; Three- eighths will form a hardy tree, That on our native Isle we bee. O. B. SWEDEN. HIS ROYAL MAJESTY'S SPEECH TO THE ES. TATES OF THE KINGDOM, In the Parliamentary Chamber, on cpe-. in? the Diet, < t Dribro, the 20th April, 1812. " Honourable, Noble, and Respe< 3 » b1e, Worthy, Learned, Imtrn& ed, and Well- beloved, Wor- shipful, and Trusty, Good Gentlemen, and Swedish Men, *• The great concerns of our native Country have again called me to apply for your counsel, before the time fixed by the forms of Govern- ment for your usual Meeting is expired. " Since 1 last saw yon assembled before my Throne, several of the Ac's by you passed, and • whereon the safety and welfare of the Kingdom tvere indubitably dependent, have been put to the proof, and their value proved by the lessons of experience. If it is the lot of humanity to join with a warm desire for what is right, the possi- bility of erring in the choice of the means to ef- fect it, it must be highly satisfactory both to you and myself, to be enabled timely to prevent such misfortunes which the pressure of the times have brought forth, and whicll alone, by a longer con- tinuance, might possibly have brought with them deplorable circumstances for the interior Govern- ment of the country. In the propositions for amendment, which will now be laid before you, I am convinced, good Gentlemen and . Swedish- men, that you will perceive I have alwa< s ac knowledged that secure reliance which I ever have, and always shall, remember of your send- j1 raents towards me and the kingdom. I have ; called you together at a moment, when great and ! important occurrences out of our native country, ! seem to threaten Europe with new misfortunes. Guarded by her situation, from the forced obit- gation of paying obedience to foreign sway, which possibly might not accord with her own interest, Sweden has every thfng to hope from unity, va- lour, and conduct, every thing to lose if she gives herself up to intestine divisions, and unwise fear. It is by the bond of unity between me and you, by my Son's sword, rich in honour, by the valour of our youths in arms, by the powerful will of the Swedish people, that the prosperity of your laws and the honour of your liberties are secured. It is by the high and valuable example of an un. disturbed confidence between the King and sub jects, by firm and manly decisions in the midst of tempestuous times, that the powers of Europe should be convinced that the independence of Sweden is not solely defended by the seas which surround her coasts, at such a decisive moment for proving the general sentiments, when it may be probable that foreign calculations have been made, with intent to destroy my exertions and yours. I ought to endeavour to shake off every thing that might have effect on the freedom of your deliberations. Different causes of great moment confirmed me in the resolution of trans- ferring the extraordinary Meeting of the Diet, vihich was to have been holden at Stockholm, to this place. If the situation of doubt and sus- pense, which about two years since was the chief occasion of taking a similar step on my side, has now given a greater space for steady order, and that the loyalty and attachment which the re- spectable Citizens of Stockholm have, at all times, as well as in the before- mentioned circumstances, shewn for their King and Laws, an attachment • which, with equal pleasure and truth, I find my- self obliged to give the inhabitants of my capital, I nevertheless Teel assured, that every unpreju- diced man, only by referring to the circumst'an- ., eel ef the time, will perceive the reasons that jj Diet, and find their sole intention to be the secu- rity and dispatch of business by the estates of the kingdom. " It now remains with you, my. good Lords and Swedishmen, to decide on my reasonable ex- pectations, to reward the labours of the Prince, who, being equally near to my heart as the throne, guided the concerns of the country during the pe- riod when my infirm state of health would not permit of my participating in them— who, then, with powerful hand, knew how to restore order and tranquillity at home, recal the erring mind, awaken the slumbering national spirit, put life and motion into the general business of the State, confidence and hope into the hearts of his fellow- citizens. who restored into my hands a kingdom, peaceful and respefled, warm only for honour, and that of his foster country, to which he always at- tached his own, who has laid on me and you the joint and sacred obligation of not deceiving his noble hopes to take from him the great example of self- denial, and that power of mind which is superior to dangers. My good Lords and Swedishmen— I judge of • he feelings which fill your hearts by those I my- self am possessed with at this solemn hour— you should be guided by the same warm love for your native country, as that which lias always filled your aged King in times of peace, and in the vi- cissitudes and destruffion of warfare. You will shew yourselves worthy of the support given you and the kingdom, by a guardian providence in the noble Prince who stands by my side— you will follow his steps, and attend to his voice, for his sole objefl is your honour and your liberty. You will put aside from your Councils all party pas sions, all party inclinations, as incompatible with the general demands of the State. You will cir cumscribe your ambition, and think of power within the common boundaries of determination to live and die like Swedishmen. It is only by such a mode of thinking, that Sweden, resting in security on the valour of her sons, cheered with the honourable prudence of my Son, can, from the height of her independent mountains, with undis- turbed serenity, view the destruflion without her borders, tranquillity and liberty in her own bosom. Let this inestimable privilege be the ultimate end in view for our endeavours. The people of Swe- den have their eyes fixed « on me and you; they shall not be deceived in their reasonable, expeila- tions by a King, who never hesitated to offer for his country both the pleasures of quiet life, and a harbour already gained, alter troubles sustained. This my solemn promise, which contains my fixed determination of going hand in hand with my Son, in defiance of hostile threats from without, and, possibly, of opinions at home, to retain the liberty and independence of this ancient realm, lays you, my good Lords and Swedishmen, under , a like obligation of contributing, willing and una- | niuiously, to the same obje< 2, and under an eternal responsibility, if you do not follow the calls which are made on you by the honour of the Swedish name, by the memory of your forefathers, by the freedom of your sons, and by the voice of your King. I remain graciously and affeflionsrtely to you, my good Lords and Swedishmen, jointly to all, and to each, and every one, especially with all Royal grace and favour." ancient in Europe, was freed from all foreign yokes by the valour of your forefathers. You will tread in their footsteps, and not suffer any violence against your religion and your rights. " The King has resolved to preserve to you the full enjoyment of y^ ur advantages, and he will destroy every attempt to bring you under the yoke, if you will rely upon him with confi- dence. Do not recal again to your thoughts those times when Sweden was near being desolat- ed. Enjoy the present tranquillity, and pray to God to grant to every one sufficient virtue and courage, faithfully to serve his King and Native Country. " Be convinced, worthy Countrymen, of the affection I bear your estate." Therefore taking into our consideration, as we do, all the circumstances of the case, as well as the circumstances mentioned in each of your affi-. davits, we do order and adjudge that you, John Hunt, pay a fine to the King of £ 20, and to be imprisoned in his Majesty's prison of the King's Bench for the space of one calendar month, and to give security to keep the peace for three years, yourself in sflOO, and two sureties in £ 50 each ; and that yon, William Squires, with respeft to whose offence there is c rtainly a distinction, we do order and adjudge. that you be imprisoned in the prison of the King's Bench for the space of one calendar month, and then be discharged ; and that you John Hunt be imprisoned till the fine | be paid, and until you have given such security. HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THB CROWN PRINCE'S RE- PLY TO THE STATES OF THE KINGDOM, ON THE ISTH OF APRIL, 1812. TO THE KNIGHTS AND NOBILITY. " Mr LORDS AND GENTLEMEN— It is always with fresh pleasure I receive the assurances of your attachment to my person. The sentiments you bear towards me are fully answerable to what I always attributed to your rank. The present state of Europe, and the sacred obligation of preserving the kingdom from a foreign yoke, have jointly operated on the King's resolution of taking the advice of his people. The first estate of the king, dom, the nobility and knighthood, whose virtues and valour are the throne's most safe supporters, will leave an honourable memorial of wise and precedent deliberation. " My Lords and Gentlemen, your ancestors gained their honours by making great sacrifices, ' || and by au unbounded love for their native coun- try. " You have inherited their valour and their in- dependent minds. We will shew Europe, that evil intents must lay aside all hopes of causing any intestine divisions, and that you are resolute ly determined to oppose every tiling that might injure our lights and our laws. " TO THE CLERGY. " Gentlemen— The critical situation in which Europe now stands, and the necessity of preserv- ing Sweden from such misfortunes as other coun- tries are suffering, has induced the King to call together the states of the kingdom-— Teachers of the doArine of Jesus Christ preach his lessons, and spread his light around. May your consultations and your lessons unite around your Father, such of his children, who, being led astray by evil pro. mises, were nearly becoming lost. God the Most High will bless your endeavours, and the happi ness of the Swedes will be your reward. I repeat to you the assurances of the sentiments I feci to- wards your orders. " TO THE BURGHERS. " Gentlemen— Agriculture, commerce, and trade, constitute the. prosperity and welfare of States.— Far from being inclined to lay any bonds on his subjedls, the King has called the Estates of the Kingdom together, in order to consult with them on the means of extending the boundaries of ARMY IN PORTUGAL. Private Letters. Extract of a letter from an Officer, dated Ba- dajos, April 7:—" When I wrote last I hinted to you the length of time which, in my opinion, it would take to reduce this fortress, but I was out in about ten days; the rapidity of our op? rations was beyond all precedent. The 4th division and the Light Division, to which, as you know, I be- , long, suffered the most. Never shall I forget the j scene that ensued, when from the ditch we as- cended to the breaches of La Trinidad and Santa Maria— Whole ranks were swept down at a time — now we mounted, down again we were sent— indignantly again we ascended, but human valour could not overcome the difficulties that were op. posed to us— we di< 3 all that men could do— the ditch was filled with brave dead men. Poor Campbell fell close by me— a better soldier never lived. The Portuguese fought nobly— not a man flinched from his duty. Our officers of rank were constantly in the front— the privates trode close on their gallant leaders— all was emulation." The following copy of a letter, written by a soldier of the 51st regiment, to his wife, in Devon- shire, gives a curious and rather unexpected description of the situation of our army in Portu- gal. We lay it before our readers without com- ment :— Pena Macor, Feb. 1812, " My dear Wife— It k with great pleasure that I write to inform you that I am in good health and spirits. I have had a long and tiresome march from Lisbon to this place. I met our re- giment on their way to Badajoz. I itaid but one night in Lisbon, but short as my stay was I paid dearly for it, as the Portuguese stole my new boots, my new shirt, and several other things— I got a new pair of shoes, but they are worn otit. and I am going without any. I am sorry to say that one- half of our army is marching entirely without shoes or stockings. The destruction of the country is very great; a great part of the houses are desti eyed, and not one in ten that are standing is inhabited, > ud the inhabitants are most wretched ; they appear to want the necessaries of life. Our rations are tolerable as to quantity, but the beef, is very U> in ; a man could make use of three men's shares if he could get them. Every thing here is so amazingly dear, that it is impos- sible to open yonr mbtnh for less th . i a dollar. Butter is a poujid ; cheese 3r. a pound ; po- tatoes 5J. a pound; rice 1/. a pound, bread; I am certain is L. a pound, and eggs 3d. each.— The regiment received their last year's clothing until the day I joined them, and I assure you the poor fellows wanted it very much ; for you could scarcely tell which was the first piece on their jackcts, or what was the original colour. Our strength is nearly three hundred men, we have ab ® ut the same number sick and absent, and we have buried about the same number since we have been in this country." ENGLISH LAW INTELLIGENCE. COURT OF KING'S BENCH. LONDON, APRIL 30 RIOTS IN ENGLAND. " CARLISLE, APRIL 2" I — On Tuesday a meet- ing of the Magistrates and neighbouring Gentle- j men was held in the Town- hall, which was also i crowded with the to* n's people, among whom were several of the operative weavers. After a number of inhabitants had been sworn in special , constab'es, for the constitutional protection of the place, Colonel Howard, of Corby, and Mr. Christian, of Unrigg- hall, addressed the people. Amongst other things advanced, they stated, that from the overstocked state of the markets, and the dullness of manufacturing sales, an immediate advance of wages was impracticable— that though lj the sufferings of the poor were great, yet in no country were there such excellent iaws for their re- lief— and that if the labouring mechanic found it impossible to support his family, he ought to seek parochial relief. Some of the weavers, in reply, stated, that in consequence of the very low price of labour, they wete compelled to perform twice the former quantity of work, and thus nearly double the quantity of goods was manufactur- ed by the same number of hands, as otherwise would have been, had wages been higher— that to an independent mind, the application for parochial assistance was at all times grievous; but more particularl/ so now ; as in such case, they would be compelled to part with their chil- dren ( and those, perhaps, at a very tender age), who, being bound out as parish apprentices would be removed from that control and superintendance which every parent, whose mind is in the smal; lest degree impressed with the awful responsibility of Such a station; wishes to have over his children ; and sooner than be severed from them, they would endure any hardships— that they had previously presented a Petition to the Magistrates for an ad- vance of wages, praying to be heard on oath re. spefling the sufferings they were enduring; and even this last had been refused— that several of the City Magistrates being manufacturers, they considered them unfit to judge in their case— and that though promises of an advance of wages had on a recent occurrence, been held out to them, these promises were no longer regarded. The Meeting broke up without any thing having been determined. Very soon after, a Deputation from the weavers waited on Mr. Christian with the Pe tition they had formerly presentsd to the City Magistratesj in which were given abstrafh from two Afts of Parliament, asserting the power of the Magistrates to regulate the price of provisions.— Mr. C. promised them, that so soon as it was pos- sible, his father, Mr. Curwen, who is now attend- ing his Parliamentary duty, would hold a Meeting of the Counry Magistrates, when their Petition should be duly considered ; and if any thing could be done to ameliorate their condition, they might rest assured it should not be neglefted. We uni derstand that Mr. Christian afterwards communi. cated to the Magistrates the particulars of what had been ptomUed, which met with their cordial approbation." FEMALE FASHIONS FOR MAY.

" Worthy Countrymen— It is with great feel- ing that 1,' for the second time, see you assembled around the thione of your King. He has called you together to consider on the exigencies of the State, and the necessity of securing to the Scande- t _ . - - navian Peninsula that liberty it has enjoyed for * lven cause for " moving the seat of the If s0 many centuries. This Kingdom, the most The defendant, Colonel Brown, who stood con- victed of forging certain documents, purporting to be the hand- writing of Mr. Harrison, Secre- tary of the Treasury, by which he obtained a grant of land in the island of St. Vincent's, was brought up for judgment. The defendant put in an affidavit, stating his long service to the country, and during the Ameri- can war, in which he had received 17 gun- shot wounds; he also stated the gieat losses he had sustained by the American revolution. Mr. PARK shortly addressed the Court on his behalf, when he was sentenced to be two years imprisoned in Ijis Majesty's gaol of Newgate. niSTt'i. tllNO RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. Mr. Justice GRO; pronounced the sentence of the Court on ,/ . .1 Hunt and IVilliam Squires, cot), vifled of an out'age on a religious Meeting, in nearly the following words : " You are here tc rec '- ve the judgment of this Court, having bee ft convifled most properly of a very dangenvis fllfrrice to society, of no less dan- gerous oflence than that of breaking and entering the dwelling house of another, doing mischief to the doors and windows, and assaulting the mis- tress of that dwelling- house, Mrs. Tomlins. When we consider the whole of this case it is an enor- mous case, whether we look to the violence used, to the day, to the numbers assembled, or to the purpose for which you were assembled; the vio- lence was great, and a great deal of injury was done to the man's property, although yon preten I you did not meet there for the puipose of doing an injury, and that you did not meet there for the purpose of doing an injury either to their persons or their property ; you did meet there to do that which is as bad— you met there for the purpose I of disturbing those who had assembled for the j purpose of religious worship, and when we recol- 1 collect what the law tolerates with respect to re- ' ligious worship, it is most abominable in private individuals to disturb others in celebrating that worship which the law allows. " Your numbers were alarming, the mischief you did was very injurious to these persons, and the purpose for whieh you met was an abominable intention to interrupt them in the exercise of that worship which the law allows, ar. d in the cele- bration of which the law will protect them. It is for us t © see that you receive such a punishment as shall be sufficient not only to deter you from the commission of such offences in future, but to de- ter others from the commission of simi ar offences.

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS ON DRISS.— The mantle call, ed the Badajoz Cloak, and the Pilgrim's Hat and long Man- tle of fine kerseymere, are universal, and the present pelisse, in compliance With ancient cu- tona, which renders velvet very outre at this season of the year, is made of sarsnet, and furs are HO more to be seen; unless they are round a pelej rine of satin to suit the colour of the dress they are worn with, and this bordering is then generally of swansdown the Parisian method of wearing the hat and leather, or bon net and flowers entirely of one colour, is much adopted. The bortr. ets are in various forms, but the sempstress bon- net takes place of the cottage; it ties under the chin with long and broad strings, which crossing tinder the chin are brought to the summit of the crown, where they tie and form a bow. The make of the g. wns, frocks, and slips have varied but little within these last three months, only that in full dress the robe is made rather lower in the back than formerly.— High morning dresses continue te be made to lace Up the front of the bust with cordon of various colours, to suit the robe over a stomacher of the same material as the gown. White crapes embroidered with silver and bright coloured sarsnets, such as Burgundy, rose- co our, and Maria Louisa blue, are in universal favour for evening parties; the Maria Louisa blue Is a dye of peculiar eclat, between the br ght cerulean and the Clwence 1^ 1 Re, 7— W.
