V. \ ( From the Pilot.) We understand,' from good authority-, that the ' ar- rangements for tlie fornratioh ef the new Admini- stration are completed to the following extent:— The Marquis of Wellesley to he first Lord of the- Trensurv; Mr. Canning Secretary of State for Fo reign Affairs ; Mr. Huskisson is to be the Chancel lor'of the Exchequer ; Marquis of Lansdown, Earl of, Moira, and Lord Holland, to have Cabinet offi- ces,. Ear] Grey and Lord Grenville having declined accepting office themselves. We have not yet heSrd the precise intended distribution of offices atnong the three last mentioned Noble Peers ; but it is supposed . that Earl Moira will have the office that he formerly heid. Master- General of the Ordnance. Mr. Tier- trey is to be President of the Board of Contiotil.— Earl Hard wick is spoken of as the new Lord Lieu tenant of Ireland. Mr; Whitbread has been men- tioned as Secretary of State for the Home Depart- ment. Earl Temple is to have bis former office of Paymaster of the forces, and Lord G. L. Gower is also to have a high place. Marquis Wetlesley, in pursuance of the command of the Prince Regent, commenced on . Saturday, the applications to tnose eminent Statesmen of other parties whom it was most desirable to associate w: tl> himself and Mr. Canning in the arrangement of a new Administration. The first per* on » applied to were Earl Grey and Lord- Grenville, to whom the Noble Marquis expressed his \ y* ilihsrness to act in a situation subordinate to them. To this very liberal and patri- otic deference and condescension in the person en- trusted with the formation of the new Government, Earl Grey and Lord Grenville answered with corres- ponding disinterestedness and regard to the service of the country; and although they declined coming themselves into office, they declared they had no ob- jection. to the acceptance of the propositions by those who have hitherto been connected with them; add- ing, that they would give their support to the Ad- ministration that should be so formed ; reserving, believe, some particular differences of opinion upoR Ceitain prominent points. As it was wished to form the new Administration on the most extended basis, Mr. Canning made an application to Earl Liverpool, and some other mem- bers of . the. existipg Cabinet ; but it is said that alt tlie,. members of that Cabinet, with the exception of Lotd - Melville, have pledged themselves never a « vain to Sit > « a Cabinet with Marquis Wellesl. ey. The reason . assigned for this determination is, according to one • statement, " the conduct of the Noble Marquis to- wards Mr. Perceval, as explained in the stntemei* re- • cently published by the Noble Marquis, of the causes Of his rftignatiap., and the disresptct shewn by him to the memory of that Minister, in the publication c> f t'lat statement since-. his death."

After which, Lord W^ llesley was admitted, and had A conference, which last ed till half. past five o'clock. Mr. Canning was then sest for,. and had also an audience of the Piince. ' , .... We ba* e every reason" to believe, that,, as. we ted yesterday, Earl Grey and Lord Grenville echoing themselves tn come into office without a mere enlarged coincidence with their views, particularly upon the Catholic question, than the Noble Marquis proposed, Jiad left their friends at liberty to accept office, declaring that they would give the Administration which should be so form- ed, the best support that their ' principles would admit. A proposition was, in consequence, made the Marquis of Lansdriwne and Lord Holland, and to the Earl of Moira ; arid some conferences look place, which have not yet come to any cer- tain ffesult :> Hut it is feared' thai they will termi- nate without bringing aboat the wished- for union. There are many who infer from the long - audi- ences given'yesterday to the Earl of Liverpool and Lord Eldori, that either the existing Ministers, notwithstanding their recent defeat in the House of Commons, will still be. desired to drag on the i Government wit^ sach. aid as they can get or i glean asiy where ; or at least that they will be con * wiled with th* view- to rsstrift and limit as much J as possible: those measures W conciliation,. wlvcE alitiouch inevitable, are granted with the reiufl' ' aSnct'tra^ * raiser Has In \ aftin^ with bis a OFFICIAL DISPATCH From Lord Wellington to Don M. ?.

This squadron left Nantz on the 9h January, and a few days after chaced the Surveil lante frigate into Corunna, since which they have been to the West Indies, but did not touch at- any of the Islands.

The newsr reached D - nyJate - on Sa- i| as having considerable weight, on a subjeCt pecu- tnrday night, but* it gained no credit, no one wotild believe that sucK a'Cts dare be attempted by any man in the service of the, best of Rings and freest country on" ear'h. It proved but too true, however, and nycer before did. any occurrence ex- cite so strong a sensation in this City. A meet- ing of the merchants was cal'ed at the Ballast- Office, at one o'clock, yesterday, but such was the general anxiety, that most of them were in attendance half an Jiour before theappointed time. When the wished- for hour arrived, Adam Schoafes,' Esq.' was. tihanimpusly called to the Chair, and Mr. George Foster stated to the meet-, ing such parts of the disgraceful transaction as came within his ioowledge. He- had been at Mo- ville for the" purpose'of transacting t( ie business of the ship Bristol; and, on the evening of Saturday, being on shore, Jiis attention was drawn to the ships . in the bay by tbe most heiv (. rending cries of wrimen and children. - He wished to go on board the- Bristol,- tut conld not procure a boat until about ten o* cffck, when the Mate of the Mary came on sjiore and conveyed him to the Bristol. The fitsf. objeft which attracted his no- tice was an old woman, of the .' name of Fulton, who had got twoeof her teeth knocked out,, and two of her ribs br « ken by the hilt of a sabre while clinging trr her sj? rr,. jU the ruffians were draggipg him- into the boat. Oil Sunday Mr-. Foster went on board th'e schooner, atcompanied by Captain Barker, of the Brist< 4. They begged leave . to takedown the names of tbi- impressed passengers, th, * they fr ight dispose- of their e'othes and pro- perty, agreeably to their wishes, which was grant- ed by Lieutenant Morgan. In the- mean time two marines walked the deck with drawn sabres, which they freely applied to the shoulders of the passen- gers. One, unfortunate wretch leaning over the bulwark, for the purpose of requesting one of the seamen, alongside, to' setid him his clothes from 1 '• n board the Venus, to which li « belonged, when he was perceived by the Li « nenant,.. and ordered j to be flogged, . ant! the order . was immediately ' obeyed, by the boatswain, who was repeatedly encouraged by Morgan, trt makehjm feel the rope's end, that he might learn wliat naval discipline was. A lad of the name of Fnion corroborated Mr. Foster's statement of what passed on board the Bristol, He is tlie son of the old woman who was so brutally treated while endeavouring to save his brother. He feigned illijes. s. and pjssed himself for. thahnsbar. ck of his sis'er. S » irne of the schooner's men. wished to pass him by, while o hers threateped to drag him out of his birth.—• One of them stabbed bis bed with his cutlass, and laid it twice across bis. throat. They left him for that time, however, and before the boat returned again he h id dressed in woman's clothes, in which he escaped to the s. heire. I- Je said he was thus se parated from his family and friends, destitute pf money and even' clothps, and forced to seek his livelihood by labour, to which he was unused. This young main's simple narrative sensibly af- fected the hearers, Mr. W. M'Collev witnessed a similar seene on board the Mary. He. was himself- ordered into the bo . t, 1 tit the Mate asserted that he was Super- cargo of the ship and nephew to the Captain, upon which he was allowed to remain. Mr. Thomas Davenport said, that he conceived there was sufficient evidence before the meeting to warrant them in concluding that an aCt of unpre- cedented and unparalleled aggression had been committed ; and, as there could not be a doubt that his Majesty's Government'wotild be forward to redress the injury, and compensate, as far as possible, the injured* lie begged leave to move " That a Committeet » f five be appointed to frame Memorials to his Grace the Lord Lieutenant and Most Honourable Privy Council of Ireland, and to tbe Lords of the Admiralty, on the subjeCt of the la'e impressment in this harbour." Mr. A'cheson Smyth' said, that he conceived it better to request the Mayor to convene a Com- moil Hall to . take tbe- stlbjeCl into consideration. It was not a question -' eortbned to the Merchants alone, the community \ » t large were interested in it, and he thought that the whole Cityr. and even the country shouid pt'ibjkly express ttiOir'ftbhor- rence of such an outrage. Besides, the memorial would go forward w'fth, greater weight from the Citizens at large, bacfeed by the s; gnauiretof the Mayor.. . , ...... ' '' Mr. Davenport, in reply, said, that the objeCt of the Meeting was tiV obtain redress for the un- fortunate sufferers, not to excite popular feeling, which was already , suJScjentVj.. aljye to tiie indig- nity which the liberties of the people fead ^ jstaiin- cd; ' and as to the weight or respeCtabilHy tti be conferred by a'Town Meeting, fie thort^ it.;' very differently on the subjefl f . the. re^' peiti- ve signa- tures of- the. reapeCtabfe Mercbafits of Derry would be known and appreciated by many of those to whom the Memi- fiat ' Would be addressed ; and, for his parr, he had never seen a Town Meeting of half- the respectability of that now assembled. Mr. Macky, Mr. Nicholson', and die pi, atarity pf the meeting, were ot ftpijiipn that a Memorial Should be immediately fo » warded from the per- sons then assembled •, but, that a town Weet& g should afterwards be convened agreeably to'the ^ 1ideas of Mr. Smyth. ; + A Cotiimittee of five vas then apnomfed to ! prepare the Memorial, whi « lv bebjf rfadW ilte'i, liarly interesting, not only to the mercantile world, but to the community at large. We would hope, for the honour of. the service, however, that the above may prove somewhat exaggerated, and, in the mean time, we deem it bur justice to th « Offi- cer above- mentioned, to publish the - following affidavit of the Mate of the Nepean, taken before the Mayor of Deny : Haying this day seen an erroneous, scand;&) U3, and false statement of tbe conduct of Lieut. Morgan; commanding H. M.' s Schooner Barbara, relative to the impressment of the people from on board the' American ships jn this harbour, and more particular- ly the Bristol, I think it my duty to step forward and make affidavit of the facts which came within my knowledge. I was ordered to board the } 3iistol, and to impress all the single yot'mg men from her, and by no means to take any married man, and in the course of the evening I was assisted by his master and gun- der, and that: no violence was made use of farther than the service Veqfuired ; ' and farther respecting- Mrs Fultori having been abused, it is utterly false ; I Was the person wh » gave her son to her, being impelled thereto by her frantic and distressed appearance; and in five other instances I gave back young men to their wives and relatives.— And the statement of their usage on bo. wd the Barbara is utterly, false, as I re- mained on board, the Barbara until she was out of the harbowr, and in no instance saw any inhuman u? age by Lieut. Morgan or any of his Officers ; and I am perfectly'assured thru Lieut. Morgan is incapable of behaving in any point unbecoming a Naval Officer and a Gentleman ; and in every. point which came within my knowledge respecting- the usage of the people impressed they were well treated and by no means ill used, and'the pau agraph which appeared in the Londonda ry Jr/ urnal is a false and an unjust at- taek on the character of a brave voting Officer.

' On Saturday last, the Londonderry regiment, com- nvi'nded by Lieiit.- Col. Heyiand, were reviewed by MajoV- General Michel. After having gone through their various, movements'with the utmost precision, the Major- General ordered the Commanding Officer to form square. He expressed himself rrot more- gra* tified at ' the State of discipline in which lie that day found the'corps, than at their regular and orderly conduct in quarters ; and he had also ' the pleasure to add, that from their numerous out detachments he. Had not received a singly complaint of irregularity or- improper conduct, which evinqed a proper attention on the part of tbe officers, and're flee ted credit on the men. Last week the sloop Wooisije, co. it loaded, from the Clyde, bound for Belfast, was lost at. Red- bay, on the coa- st of the county Antrim, wh^ p two of the hands perished, the master bi ing happily saved. The sloop had sprang a leak, which notwithstanding the exeitions oi those on board, continued to gain so much upon them, that the master determined to run her ashore for the preservation of their fives. On pproachitrg the shore, they were hailed by a man on the beach, who- by stgrrs directed them to make for an opemn- g a iittfc to windward ; but in endeavouring to alter the vessel's course, she gave a lurch and im mediately went down. The master gut up the rigg- ing, 3. id with a line Fastened himself to the top- mast, which, reniained of the Water ; he continued in this perilous situation for about two hours, when he was relieved by a boat from the shoie.

SIR— As the season for bathing rs now ap- proaching, probably a few observations relating to the management of that operation, partly ex- tracted from the works of a Lite eminent phy- sician, and partly the result of my own expe- rience, may not be unacceptable, or altogether useless, to some of your numerous readers They chiefly apply to salt- water bathing: 1. The morning tide is incomparably prefer- able to the evening ; and an empty stomach to a full one, for this healthy operation. 2. Th& timc allotted ftjr stripping, Immersion, and'resuming the dress, should rarely exceed 20 minutes; if it can be done in 15, so much the better. 8. The blood should be moderately heated, both before and after the bath, by walking or other suitable exercise. 4. Notwithstanding the absurd and sillv pre- judices to the contrary, the body should, on emersion, be instantly and briskly rubbed with a elarse cloth, till perfectly dry. Let every one who regards his health, attend particularly to this; for, notwithstanding, it is admitted that salt water does not so readilv give sensible cold as fresh, yet, it is certain, that the damp absorbed by the linen, on being put on a wet body, and lying against the skin, is attended with the most dangerous consequences, and has often laid the oundation of a consumption or inflammation of • he lungs, when the patient is perhaps totally ttnorant of the cause of his disorder. This per- nicious practice is of the very same nature as sleeping in damp sheets, with the difference., in- deed, of. air and exercise to assist in couilteracting the iniutious effects it would otherwise be attend- ed with. Attention to this point is most essentially ne- cessary with children, as their- tender frames are ss able to contend with so hurtful a practice, an those of adults : yet, strange to tell, with icse it is most neglected ! I have been often lied with a mixture of grief and indignation, at seeing the clothes of tender infants hurried . on their » * et bodies after bathing, which cannot fail to give the poor innocents a fit of the cholic, or a severe cough, or possibly throw it into . convul- sions; yet there is no persuading their mothers or nurses of the impropriety and danger of doing so. The notion from whence this practice arose, very probably originated in the supposed fact of the body absorbing the salt water, and the salu- rious effects of such absorption upon the system. Not to mention that the doctrine . of absorption has been controverted by some very eminent phy- sicians, yet assuredly the proper time and place or receiving such beneficial effects is during im- Bcersion, and not by the application of wet clothes, " hich, checking the perspiration, not only coun- racts the benefit oi bathing, but saps the con. j utior., and lays a foundation for a numerous ain of diseases, V By a proper attention to the precsding obser- " us, sea- bathing may be used with equal plea- ar. d advantage.— I am, Sir, your obedient ant, , BLNEVOLOK.

Ml Losn— It appears upon the trial of John Bellinghaai, for the murder of Mr. Perceval, that the prisoner in his de- fence endeavoured to justify that atrocious ait, oil the ground of his Majesty's Government having refused to compensate him for the injuries and oppression he statrs himself to have suffered io Russia, during the time I had the honour of re- presenting his Majesty in that country. lie complained - art'xulaily of my conduit, and that of Sir Stephen Shairp, Majesty's Consul- General, as having sanctioned, l> y our silence, and nigle. il to interfere in his behalf, the unjust treatment, as he considered it, of the Russian Government. I was subpoenaed by the prisoner to attend the trial , 1 did attend, and e* peCtcd anxiously to be called upen, to state, upon oath, all I could recolleCI of the circumstances of his case in Russia. In this expedition, however, I was disau- ointed : my testimony was n » t called for ; r. nd after having eard the must serious accusations of gross negleCt of duty d want of common humanity; brought forward by the prisoner against myself and Sir S. Shairp, I haul not the op- portmiity afforded me of publicly refuting those charges.— Although 1 am perfectly aware that the assertions <•, a man, standing in the situation of Bellingham, can, unsupported by any other testimony, have no weight whatever with the aofcer and reflecting part of the public, yet 1 should be want- ing, I think, to the intertsts and noaotir of the Government of this country, as v » eU as to my own chara& er and reputa- tion, if 1 did not endeavor to do away any posa: bl « misap- ' tirehensien upon this subjeA, by as ample a ktatement of the , rcumstances, jis my memory of transactions which passed will allow me to futnlsl). As you, my Lord, are the head of that department, un- der which I was employed, I conceive it to be my duty to address this statement to vour Lordship. In the year 1805, I remember receiving a letter from John Bellineham, complaining of his being detained in pri- son at Archangel, and claiming my p- oteflion, against what he conceived to be the injustice of the Constituted Authori- ties of that Port; I remember that immediately upon the receipt of this letter, I consulted with Sir Stephen Shairp, who agreed not only to write a letter to the Governor- Gen- eral, requiring an explanation of the circumstances which Bellingham comphiued, but also to his own mercantile cor- respondents, British Residents at Archangel, for their opi- nion of the conduit of the Russian Government towards the Complainant. It appeared from these inquiries, that Bellingham having been engaged in commercial business with the house of Dorbecker and Co. pecuniary claims were made by each parry against the other, and that these claims had been hy the Governor- Gen ' ral referred for decision to four merchants, two British merchants b ing appointed on the part of Bel- lingham, and two other persons on the part of Doibecker. By the award of those arbitrators, Bellineham was declared to be indebted to the assignees of Dorbecker the sum of two thousand roubles. This sum Bellingham, notwithstanding this decision, refused to pay. It also appeared from the communications received from Archangel, that a criminal suit had been instituted against Bellingham, by the owners of a Russian ship which had been lost in the White Sea. They accused him of hating written an anonymous letter, that had been received by the Under- writers in London, in which letter it was stated that the in- surance of that ship was a fraudulent transaction ; and pay- ment for the loss ef her had been in consequence resisted.— No satisfactory proof was adduced against Bellingham, and he was acquittedof this charge. But before the termination of this suit, he attempted to quit Archangel, and being stop- ped by the police, whom he resisted, lie was taken to pri- son ; but was soon after liberated, in consequence, I be- lieve, of a second application to the Governor from Sir Stephen Shairp. About this period f quitted Russia : and I havt no re- collection of hearing any thing more of John Bellingham, till after my arrival at St. Petersburg)! upon my second em- bassy. He came running into my house one evening, and solicited me to allow hini to remain all night, in order to avoid being retaken into custody by the Police, from whom j he had escaped. I complied with this request, though I ! could not, upon any ground, assume to myself the power of protecting him from legal arrest It appeared that the award of the Arbitrators of Archangel had been confirmed by the Senate, to which body Bellingham had appealed; and he was, in consequence delivered over to the custody of the College » f Commerce ( a Tribunal established for the special purpose of taking cognizance of commercial matters relating to British SubjeCts, and whose authority was recognized m the Commercial Treaty between the two Countries) there to remain till he discharged the debt of two thousand roubles. This custody B- as not very striCt, for he was allowed to walk wherever he pleased, attended by a Police Officer, be- longing to the College. He came frequently to my house, and at various times received from my Private Secretary small sums of money, to support him during his confine- ment. Confined as he was by the legal authorities of the country, I could on no pretence make any application for his release: but 1 remember well, in conversation with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, expressing my personal wish hat the Russian Government, seeing no prospeCt of. retover- ng the sum of money required fiom him, would liberate him from prison, on condition of his immediately returning to England. Very soon after this conversation, all diplomatic intercourse ceasod between the two Courts: and the course of public events necessitated my quitting Ru= sia in the abrupt manner with which vour Lordship is well acquainted. I am, my Lord, with reaped, Your Lordship's most obedient, Humble Servant, ( Signed) GRANVILLE LF. VESON GOWER. The Viscount Castlereagh, & c. & c. & c. ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF WESTMINSTER ELECTION. London, Monday, May 25. The Fifth Anniversary of Sir Francis Burdett's return to Parliament for the City of Westminster was celebrated on Sa'urday, at the Crown and Anchor Tavern, Sir Francis Burdett in the Chair. A little after five o'clock the Hon. Baronet en- tered the room, accompanied by the Hon. G. H. Hutchinson, M. P.; E. BloufSt, Esq. of Stafford- shire; W. Fawkes, Esq. of Farnley, York; G. Johnson, Esq. Scat borough, York ; H. Clifford, Esq.; C. A. Thomson, Esq.; Major Cartwright; William Bosvitle, Esq. ; Henry Hunt, Ewj. of Bristol; Montague Burgoyrie, of Mark Hill, Essex; C. and H. Wolselevs, Esqrs. Staff irdshire; — Kinnaird, Esq.; Alderman Wood, & c. & c. When an assemblage of nearly 50p Eledtots of Westminster sat down to dinner.— Immediately after tlfe removal of the cloth, The Regent— and may lie bear in mind the declaration of the Prince of Wales* ' that the Crown is held ui trust fot the benefit of the People,"— was drank with three, and loud applause.—- Tune, " God save the King." Sir F. Burdett then rose and said, that although, in the toast he Was about to propose, he necessa- rily felt deeply impressed with the virtues a< ul abilities of the person to whom it related, still he thought the exercise of those virtues and abilities was too recent in the recolleflion of all those who were present, to render it fit or necessary for him to go info any common- place eulogium on the merits of a departed friend ; although, on such an occasion, it certainly would be excusable. The worthy Baronet then gave—' " The memory of that trtle Patriot, tf'hri for upwards of fifty years advocated the People's Cause, John Horn Tcroke " [ With three ]— Tu « e, " The Dead March.'* Mr. Sturch then said, by permission, or rather at the request of the Stewards, he rose for the purpose of proposing a toast. In giving it, he would detain them for one moment to express the pleasure he felt at seeing so numerous a company asfembled on this occasion; among whom he ob- served so many of those faces which were familiar to him, persons with whom he had the honour to be associated live years ago— persons who, in common with himself, had supported their present independent Representative against the power of corruption, and of undue influence.— fHear, hear.) They had abundant reason to congratulate them- selves on the choice they had made of the Hon. Baronet; even so lately as Thursday evening, he had, in his place in Parliament, promulgated doc- trines which cleafly proved his invariable cunsti- | tutional feeling. Mr. Sturch concluded by giving | " Westminster's Pride, and England's Hope— Sir Francis Burdett."—[ Which was drank with three times three, and the most unbounded applause.}— Tune, " Btitons strike home." Sir Francis Burdett immediately rose, and said; he should be insensible indeed to any of those com- mon feelings which necessarily operated on the human breast, if he did not feel, in the strongest degree, gratitude towards the Eleflors of West- minster, and devotion to their and the public in- terest for those genuine marks of affeCtion and esteem, which he had so uniformly received from them ( Hid the public at large. They formed an I additional stimulus fer his adherence to that prin u ciple of public duty, which luj secured him a re ward, that, after the gratification of his own mind, after the feelings of his own heart, w> s the most pleasing return which could be ir. ade to him for his exertions— he meant the approbation of the Electors of Westminster.—( Hear.) Calamitous as was the situation of the country, he conceived little sa'isfaftion could be derived from reflecting on public affairs. But he confessed he felt very great satisfaction, in having an opportunity of ad- dressing so respectable, so numerous, and so en- lightened a body of his Constituents. Those sen- timents, which, unfashionable as they appeared to be in many other places, where one should sup- pose they would be received with congenial feel- ings, he did experience much gratification in avowing, before an assembly where public virtue, public feeling, and the consideration of public duty, were not extinguished.—( Hear, hear-) It was often his lot, in the performance of his duty, to address a number of Gentlemen, whose feelings appeared to . be of a very different description.— Paying the EleCtOrs of Westminster this compli- ment, if, indeed, " it could be at all so considered, he begged leave ( o observe, that it was a very- in- different one, and therefore, they must place it on the ground of his not having been in the habit of addressing assemblies in a complimentary way ; such, howecer, as it was, he trusted thev would receive it as it was intended.—( Hear, hear.)— Their fellow Eletfor, Mr. Sturch, had repre- sented his ( Sir Francis's services, in a light ex. tremely flattering— at the same time, he was per. feCtly aware, that in his representations, more ought to be attributed to his partiality, and to the indulgent medium through which he was inclined to view his exertions, than to any possible advan- tages which he could render to his Constituents, or to the public in general, under the present cir- cumstances of the country. The worthy Gentle- man had alluded to what passed on Thursday last, itl the House f Commons, and had done him the honour to agree in his sentiment— that, with- out certain great public measures, the old sham miserable pretence of benefiting the public, by any change in the Administration, would be found illusory. Now, the measure he proposed, and on which he would stand, was this— thai no Admi- nistration should be formed, except on the prin- ciple of redressing the giievances of ^ he public ; of cutting off and stopping the profligate expendi- ture of public money ; for instance, the paying of unmerited pensions, and the granting of sinecure places to worthless individuals; that no Adminis- tration should be tolerated that did not proceed on the broad basis of universal rights, that would not oppose the rights of the Constitution being withheld from any description of person-, on ac- count of religious opinions— together wi: h this principle, which could alone secure the continu- ance of the'benefits he had mentioned, or of any others which an Administration might bestow on the country—" a full and fair Representation of the People id Parliament," ( hear)-' o which ht? thought they were as well entitled as the King was to the Crown. It was part of the compact, t was, part of the oiiginal agreement when the Monarch ascended the throne— and the people ha I as full and complete a right to it., as any in- dividual had a right to his private estate; and in one point of view, the claim might be considered more powerful, because it was most essentially cotinefled with the happiness and prosperity of the country. By the recognition of that right alone could be supported tiie boast which they were so fond of making, sometimes, he belie ved, without much consideration, that this was a free and in- dependent nation. He had always believed and maintained, that the great Constitutional bulwark of a Parliament fairly chosen by the people at large, was not more necessary to the due admi- nistration of- the Laws— the safety of the cotintrv, and the security of the people in general, than conducive to the greatness and permanency of the Throne. To illustrate this point a little, he would just call their recolleflion to the transactions which had lately occurred. They were told in tire d tily papers, that the Administration was put an end to; and that the King had sent to my Lord this, and Mr. such a- one, to frrm a new one. Now, those persons to whom he was obVged u> apply, are, or suppose they will be, able to manage so much Parliamentary influence ( that i=, to com- mand so many votes from rotten boroughs), as would' enable an honest King, and an honest Minis- ter, to carry on the Government of the Country. ( Loud laughter.)— It appeared to him that the King was degraded by such a proceeding as this. In point of fail, he was not the King— there was a Sovereign over him, whose will he was obliged to complv with, and to whom he was obliged to sacrifice ( that he might be allowed to goon at all with his Government) the best interests of his people.—( Hear, / jear. f— For' his own part, he should call the afl of the Sovereign, in thus send- ing to such and such persons to form an Admiais- tration, a periodical abdication of the Government by the King.— ( Isiudcheering.)—' The great object which he ever had in view, was- to endeavour to bind together the interests of the King and of the ople ; that they sjiould be strong enough, united, to put down that borough faction, which, he again assertedv stood as Sovereign over both-— to cuff down those otols and unclean birds that impudent- ly seat themselves, cheek by jole, on the same chair with Royalty.—( Great app/ aute.)—- In following this course, though he was well aware that he was not likely to obtain applause of that description of persons who usually surrounded a King, and, for their own private purposes ( and, generally to their own rnin) misguided and mislead him— but he had this consolation in his mind, that he was doing that which every honest subjeft wpylcLdo for his King— he was supporting his interests as much as those of the people at large. Sir Francis then, in an animated manner, called on the coun- try Gentlemen to come forward, observing, how- evier, that if they did not chuse to shew themselves the advocates of their own and country's rigms, he had no doubt but the people, dettrmined to be free, would aft for titertiselves, and become their own leaders. " The Navy— the bulwark of a free nation." Sir Francis, previous to giving the health of Lord Cochrane, stated thai, illness prevented him from attending. '' Lord Cochrane, asd his sble exertions agamst England's Foreign and Domestic Enemies." "•' I he Army of England, and may it never be employed bat against the Foreign1 Enem^," Sir Francis Burdett then read a letter from Mr. Brougham, apologizing for his absence, which was occasioned by indisposition. " Mr. Brougham, the able opponent of the Orders In Conncil." , " The Htm. C. ftutchin* Mi, and K- iends of Freedom in Ireland." Mr. Hutchinson returned thanks in an energe- tic speech, in which he took occasion to contrast tbfe growing interest which the people of vthis country take in the affairs of Irelaod, with their former apathy on the subject. The band then played Erin go- bragh," and " St. Patrick's Day in the Meriting," with great spirit. The Chairman then gave, * The Independent Livery of London, Friefid5 to Parlia- mentary Reform"— with three. Sir Francis Burdett then proposed, " The health of Mr. Alderman Wood"— with three. Whish was received by the company with rap- ture. Mr. Alderman Wood expressed the sincere gra- titude which- he felt for the distinguished honour conferred upon him by so respectable a meeting; and he also felt himself fully justified in returning them the thanks of the Livery of London, friends to Parliamentary Reform. Sir Francis Burden then proposetS, " Mr. Fawkes, and the Hampden CluV Which was drank with three. Mr. Fawkes, after returning thanks for the honour done him,. addressed the company at some length, on the necessity of a Reform in the Representation of the People. The next toast was, " The veteran Advocate of Parliamentary Reform— Ma- jor Cartwright." Which was drank with great applause. Major Cartwright retimed thanks for the hon- our done him by the Meeting, and shortly enforc- ed the necessity of a Reform in Parliament, as the only remedy the country had left for their numerous present grievances, and their best se- curity against illegal power in future. The following toasts were then drank with great applause : " The Abolition of Flogging— May the Defenders of the Land be relieved from the ignominy of the Lash." " The Liberty of the Press-. it is like the ajr we breat'ne, if we have it not we die." " Repres^ itation without Rotten Boroughs, Soldiers with- out Barracks, Defence without Foreigners, and Legal means of suppressing Riots, without Military Executions" About ten o'clock Sir F. Burdett left the Chair, and the Company shewed him every demonstra- tion of respeCl as he passed, and departed shortly after him. MR. WORTLEY. The Hon. 8- uart Wortley, who made the Mo- tion in the House of Commons for an Address to ih" Pilnce Regent, praying his Royal Highness to take such measures as may be best calculated to f> rm an efficient Administration, is- second son to late Statesman, the Earl of Bute; his pre sent manly conduc't leads us to quote, what his friendt the late James Boswell, Esq. says of him, in hi, life of Dr. Johnson, and in his Letter to the People of Scotland :— " For sterling good sense, discernment, honour, loyalty, and conviviality, no mail can surpass my Honourable Friend. He distinguished himself as a good Officer of the Bedford- shire Militia, had taken a public spirired resolution to serve his country in its difficulties, by raising a regiment, and tak- ing the command of it himself." This, in the heir of the immense property of Wortley, is highly honourable. To find that pa- triot again, when the fire of youth has been damp- ed by time, so energetic for the welfare of his country, is truly cheering, and does honour to himself and the nation at large.
