By a vessel from the kingdom of Hay ti, we have received some late Gazette's, showing that Cbri to: phe is determined nn a rigorous war against his rival Chiff, and that. he is most indignant at the capture of the Amfthyst frigate. We subjoin the substance of a Proclamation on these subjeifls. PROCLAMATION. Henry, by the Grace of Sod, & c. King of Iliyti, to the People and Army of Hayti. HAYTIANS— An unheard of attempt, and th? most atrocious treachvry of some miserable mis- creants, have placed in the power of the rebels of the South, my frigate. La Princesse Royal Aree- this. te, after those traitors h'ld laid thrir criminal hands upon their Admiral, and some others of theif officers ; the conseqnence of th• 3 infernal en- terprise ( which the genius of rebellion could only invent) was the capture of two o'. her of my ves- sels, which were deceived by the false signals of the rebels. On this occasion, as on all former, they made use of their favourite weapon— perfi- dy ! Navigating, cruizing afterwards without a commission from any legal power, that ship was captured as a pirate ; for no Sovereign is exempt from experiencing treason, but all are interested in punishing trailers. I have now risen from my lethargy—- my slumber was similar to that of the Lion j I am resolved to march against Port- ati Prince, and reduce those rebels to subjeftion j I have too long re- trained the' ardor of my brave soldiers, hut in so doing did I not afford ample time to those rebels to see into their errors ? Far from profiting by if, are they not this moment dividing the southern and western departments ? If they so far misconceive my munificent inten- tions, can I longer endure this state of things and uncertainty ? To prolong it would they not attribute it to any other cause than the one which has heretofore been the effefl of particular good- ness, and motives wholly paternal on my part ? N » y, I should stand culpable to my people, to my army, and to myself, were I linger to delay in reducing to obedience those districts yet dis. graced by the spirit of rebellion. The proclamation then continues to assure the soldiers and the nenple, that in spite of the numer- ous enemies of Hayri, its independence should he acknowledged, and their cause finally triumph, because it was founded on justice, morality, and the eternal law of reason. To all those who have been misled the proclamation promises pardon, security, proteflion, and a respefl for persons and property. To the planters and cultivators, the Emperor requests them not to abandon their homes, that he takes up arms for tb eir protection and the fruiis of their labour— ihe soldiers he thus addresses : " Misguided soldiers, could you for so long a time have remained ignorant of your real Chief, > he Father of the Soldier— Compare your situation with that of your brothers, who, until now, with regret have treated you as enemies, but who are now ready to embrace you as their companions in arms : hesitate no longer to abjure your errors, come and take your rank in the army, and all shall be forgotten. I declare, and, in the face of Hearen, which I always took as the Witness of my adions, that I shall observe the promises con. rained in my anterior proclamations in favour of those who, without being constrained, shall be- come obedient, I shall distinguish, as I have ever done, error from crime, I shall proteCl the good of all colors, I shall treat them only as enemies, who make resistance, and woe to the traitors who shall persist in their rebellion." The proclamation next calls to the recolleflion of the soldiers the speech of the Emperor at the capture of the Mole, when they were assured, that he only fought for peace, that obtained ; " Happy for ever under the empire of justice, morality, ci- vilization, and the arts, we shall only have to pro- vide for the happiness of future generations."— Given at the Palace of our good city Cape Henry, this 28: h March, 1812.

A Mail from the Brazils reached town, brought to Falmouth by the Swallow packet. The le ters are to the 8th April. They mention that a Naval Expedition had sailed from Monte Video against Buenos Ayres, which menaced the latter place with bombardment. It does not appear that any immediate assessment on British merchandize was aoprehended. The following is a copy of the Proclamation embargoing all propeity belonging to Spaniards, in Europe, Lima, Monte Video, and in Peru :—• Proclamation of the Government of Butnos Ayres. It is well known that of late years, since the interruption to the free intercourse with the Pe- ninsula, and the blockade and separation from Monte Video, there has been continued in the hands of the merchants, warehousemen, shop- keepers, and retailers, a Considerable amount in money, effects, and debts, resulting from wills, consignments, powers of attorney, purchases, and every description of commissions and contracts belonging to residents in the Portuguese terri- tories, in Old Spain, in the Vice- royalty of Lima, ! and other districts occupied by the army of Goy- eneche, which property in whatever form it mav exist, ought to be in its proper portion applicable I to the purposes of this superior Government; the following order respecting it is he'eby given : Every merchant, warehouseman, shopkeeper, j consignee, or other, in whatever manner author- | ised, and whether for his own intere- t or that of another, and every individual, who, by purchase, | or any the like contract, should have in his pos- i session, or that ot another, either here or else- ' where, money or goods belonging to the subjects I of Spain, Brazil, or Montevideo, or to . the ter- . ritory in obedience to it, or to the Vice royalty of I Lima, and to the districts and places forcibly sub- FORMlNG AN ADMINISTRATION. Lord CASTLEREAGH said, previous to the Right Hon. Gentleman giving an answer to thi » question, he felt it his duty to make a corjr- nuni- cation of certain circumstances to the Hou, e— It was well known that a Noble Lord ( Weileslev) had received instructions from his Royal High- ness the Prince Regent to form an Administration, but that the Ntible Lord having failed ir\ his en- deavours, had resigned his authority again into the hands of the Regent; his Royal Highness then commanded the Earl of Moira to endeavour to form such an Administration. He had now to state, that that Noble Earl had this morning alsn surrendered that authority into the hands of the Prince Regent ; upon which his Royal Highness, anxions to comply with the wishes and recom- mendation of the House of Commons, had named the Earl of Liverpool, First Lord Commissioner of the Treasury, and had given his Lordship fult powers to form an Administration—( Heat, hear). He left it to the Right Hon. and Hon. Gentle- men to say, whether, under these circumstances, they would agitate two ques ions of such vital mportance to the interests of the country as the Catholic Claims and the Orders in Council were, on so early a day as Thursday ? Mr. CANNING declared he had no objection to name any day now, pro forma, but wished it to be understood, it was his determined intention to bring it forward. An Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Martin) had a motion to the same effeCt as his, standing for the day following his. He supposed that ( he Hon. Gentleman would have no objection to postpone that also, and he ( Mr. Canning) would then renew his motion for the 19th instant. Mr. MARTIN, of Galway, declared bis readi. ness to postpone his motion ; it was only in the hope of s< eing the Right H* n. Gentleman in some high official situation, that he was induced to give his notice at all. He had not yet given up that hope.—( Hear, hear.) Mr. CANNING thert fixed his motion for the 18th, and the call of the House for the day pre. ceding it. Mr. ROSE said, the Hon. an. l Learned Gen- tleman opposite had expressed his intention of bringing forward his motion on the O: ders in Council, on Thursday ; he trusted when the Hon. Gentleman considered the length of the evidence, and that at least one quarter i f it had not vet bern distributed to Members, he would not persist " n bringing it forward at so early a day. Mr. BROUGHAM said, instead of one quar- ter remaining to be delivered, the faCt was, that only one seventeenth remained ltot delivered to Members, and that he understood would be de. livered either to- night or to- morrow. He wished to ask if Gentlemen had seen the accounts from America ; and whether, after having seen them, they would say this was a question which could be delayed i This was not of the same descrip- tion wilh the Right Hon. Gentleman's motion ; to delay this question would be ruin. Whilst this was passing here, what was passing in America ? that which would ruin this country.—( Heai'.)~- Were they then to wait under circumstances t' » see what this new brat of an Administration would bring forth ? He spoke now for greater objects than these ; he spoke for peace between this c- mn- try and America ; he spoke for the preservation of the commerce of this country, which would be sacrificed by delay j he spoke also for the 100 Delegates, who had for some time been attending at the bar. He knew not of any reasons, consti- tutionally Speaking, which should prevent iha House doing its duty. The H'- use was peifeC). ( hough the Administration was not ; and all the consequence would be, that the question wouid be heard on its own merits. If theie was any reason for preventing his postponing his motion stronger than these, it was, that Lord Liverpool, after the decided opinion of that Hyuse, declaring thii B ELF AST C' VM \! vf' CT \ t C H Q O \* IC f. F. Vv- * i PARLIAMENTARY INTELLIGENCE. ( Continued from First Page.) the late Administration incapable, had been mark- ed by an Address to the Prince Regent, was again, as appeared from the statement just made by the Noble Lord, appointed Prime Minister. Under these circumstances, he should therefore move that the Call of the House be fixed for Fri- day next. Lord CASTLEREAGH observed, that if, in fixing the call of the House for Friday, the Hon. Gentleman intended to be understood as meaning to bring forward his motion on the expediency of the Orders in Council on that night, he should, feel it his duty to take the sense of the House on the subject. He could not help calling the atten- tion of the House to the inexpediency ( not to say j indecency) of thus attempting to hurry forward a question of this importance—( Hear, hear.)— This was not the first time he had had to complain of the Hon. Gentleman's desultory notices, in which he took the opportunity of introducing re- marks, and proceeded to make comments not founded on facts, or on the decisions of the House.—( Hear, hear.) He would venture to say nothing could be more unparliamentary than for the Hon. Gentleman to declare, that, on a day when it might be foreseen none of his Ma- jesty's responsible servants could be in their places, he would proceed to discuss a subject up. on which, by his own account, peace between this country and America depended.—( Hear, hear.) Did the Hon. Gentleman mean to erect himself into an Administration for that purpose ? —( Hear, hear.) He was at a loss to conceive where the Hon. Gentleman obtained his informa- tion respecting America, and how he could un- dertake to decide so positively on the subject, without being in possession of any documents as to the state of the negociation between this coun- try and her.—( Hear, hear.) With respeft to the Orders in Cruncil, would tile Honourable Gentleman pretend to say, be- cause he was prepared to speak to them as the cause of the present local distress, that therefore the House was prepared to speak of them gener- ally. He ( Lord Castlereagh) was of opinion there was enough on the evidence to prove to the House that they were benefic al to commcrce and the country ; and to remove from the country that gloom which the Hon. Gentleman's view of the suhjeft was calculated to create—( Hear.)— It was, he would say, unprecedented then to at. tempt to drive the House into discussion. He had no contrau! certainly over an individual Mem- ber's conduft ; but he should consider himself guilty of a dereliftion of his dtvy, if, should the Hon. Member persist in his intention, he did not take the sense of the House upon it.—( Hear.) — After the scenes of the last fortnight, he thought he had a right to" complain, on the part of the peo- pie, of the conduit of the Honourable Gentle- man and his friends opposite. They only it was who were to be blamed j it was their conduit which had caused the delay—( Hear, hear )— It was they who had placed the House in a situation which prevented the subjeft having been discussed.—( Heir, hear.)— He had ventured to state, on a former night, that the Honourable Gentleman and his friends would find it more easy to pull down an Administration than to ereft one. They had experienced the truth of that opinion. —( Hear, hear.)— He denied that any vote or proceeding of the House had gone, or been in- tended to convey, a vote of censure on, or to de. clare an opinion of the incapacity of the late Ad- ministration. Nor would Le suffer such an asser- tion to go uocontradifted.—( Loud cheers).— The Noble Lord concluded, by again declaring, that, if the Honourable Gentleman persisted in bring- ing forward his motion on Thursday, he would previously take the sense of the House upon it. Mr. S. WORTLEY rose 10 ask the Noble Lord a ques- tion. Mr. MARTIN, of Gslway, rose amidst loud cries of Order.—" Mr. Speaker, 1 rise to order— and to order- only I do not menn to preclude the Hon Gentleman putting any question : but I was—•—( Cries of Order, order !• ) Lord FOLKESTONE rose to call the Hon. Member to order. He ruse to speak to order, and was himself disorderly. Mr. MARTIN resumed, he was not disorderly now; he had been disorderly on a former night, when he wished to put a question and was prevented; he was at lea-. t only dis- n- derly then in submitting to a Gentleman who interrupted mure, and added less to debate than any man in the House. —( Cries if Order, order ! Chair, chair !) The SPEAKER observed, the Hon. Gentleman must be aware be wa, wandering from the subject. Mr. MARTIN—" Sir, I have been told it i « not regular lo put questious ; I was prevented putting one. I owe it to myself— 1 owe it to the House to remind them of that cir- cumstance."—( Here, here.) The SPEAKER said it certainly was nut stri&' y orderly for any Hon. Member to put questions; it was allowed iu some case", where it was likely to forward public business, hut must we consider » s disorderly when it tenied to im- pede it.. Mr. STEPHEN said, he understood the Honourable Gen- tleman wished to put a question, the answer to which would determine whether he would proceed on some particular mo- tion. t Sir F. BURBETT thought the strift rules of the House did not allow of Members putting questions. Mr. S. WORTLEY said, the Heuse was called o « to go jto a Rebate upon a most important question; previous to its doing so, he wished to ascertain what was the state of the Government, and it was with that objedt he wished to put the question. Mr. W1LBERF0RCE thought the Honourable Gentle, man, ( Mr. Martin) had a right to complair, he bad himself been stopt from putting a question.— He ( Mr. Wilberfarce) was decidedly against the pradtice of putting questions at all. ' Mr. ROSE repeated his former arguments agalnsst going ilito a discussion on the Orders in Council on so early a day. \ Mr. STEPHEN was of the same opinion. Lord . MILTON thought they would be able to debate a question without having a Minister i n the House to take charge ot it, as a Noble Lord ( Cas'Ierragh) had expressed jr. He wished for once the House of Commons might de- fate a question on its own merits, without any Administra- tion— ( Henr J Lord CASTI. EREAGH had not said it was necessary Miuisttrs should be in the House to take charge of a debate ; what he had said was, that it was Constitutional that the re- sponsible advisers of the Crown should be pre t » it, to give information and advice. Mr. WHITBREAD said, the Noble Lord's words had made the same impression on his mind as they had on the milid- of his Noble Friend ( Milton.) He perfe< aly agreed with his Hon Friend ( Brougham), that the earliest day would be the fittest lor the discussion of this question. ' J he Noble l. ord had said, it would be necessary to have the re- sponsible Minister of the Crown, who was possessed of all the correspondence with America, in the House. Who was Ignorant of that correspondence, etcrpt the House of Com- mons ? it was known to all the rest of the world; and where would he the use of having the Noble Lord in the House, s r ce though^ he possessed that correspondence, he was a, uiirirrd not to communique it to Parliament? The situation of America with regard to this country, was most critical. On the decision of this question depended the ques- tion of peace or war ; and the delay of a week might ren- der war inevitable. The Order of the Day for the Cillcf the House w » « then, on the suggestion of Lord CASTLERKAGH, postponed to Friday se'nnight. Mr. BROUGHAM ( hen gave notice that he should, on Thursday se'nnight, bring forward his motion for an Ad- dress to the Prince Regent, on the Orders in Council. ADDRESS TO THE REGENT. General GASCOIGNE postponed his motion on this sub- jedt, which stood for to- night, to Wednesday, Mr. S. WORTLEY would now put bis question to the Noble Lord. He wished to ask the Noble Lord, if the powers given to Lord Liverpool by his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, were similar to those given to the Marquis Wellesley, or whether it was merely a power to carry into efftiS the arrangements which had been proposed previous to the Address of the House ? Lord CASTLEREAGH was not aware of the precise powers granted to Lords Wellesley and Moira, but his NOT hie Friend had received his Royal Highness's dire& ion to proceed to the formation of an Administration. Mr. S. WORTLEY * aid, it was not his intention to im- pute blame to the present Administration, but he should, perhaps to- morrow, move an Address to his Royal High- ness, expressing generally the regret which the House felt I at his Royal Highness's not having been able to follow up his j most gracious declaration. Lord CASTLEREAGH put it to his Hon Friend, whether it would not be better to name some day not too distant, but so distant as to afford a chance of an Admini- stration being formed. Mr. S. WORTLEY then fixed his motion for Thursday ; with an understanding, that it would then certainly be brought forward. General GASCOIGNE said, tha Hon. Gentleman having fixed on Thursday, and it appearing that the House would not be ready to receive any motion before that day, he should fix his motion for Friday.— Adjourned. BW.'.

The Offi- cers and persons appointed to attend that Minister j of State, began their attendence on the Noble Earl. The following paragraph appeared in The Mor- ning Chronicle of this day :— " Lord Moira « as commissioned by his Royal Highness to assure LordsOrey and GrenvTlle, that his R'oyal Highness had come to - a determination to change ihe whole system on which the Govern, ment was t « be carried on, and that two impor- tant features of his future Administration were to be, Concession to the Catholics, and the.

On Monday, June the 8th, hi, Royal Highness was pleased to appoint to the Of- fice of First Minister, and to authorize to form the whole of the Government, the Earl of Liver- pool, who, with every one of his Colleagues, : present and future, is irrevocably pledged against; the Repeal of the Orders in Council." The guard of the mail coach from Liverpool, brought yesterday to a mercantile house in Lon- don, a letter from its agent at that place, couched j in the following terms:— " Sunday Night, June 7. i " GlNtttMSN— The Queen has arrived here from the , United States, and has brought the news of a declaration of war against Great Britain." FIRE AT PLYMOUTH. PLYMOUTH, JUNE 8— This morning, soon af. ter three o'clock, a fire broke out in the roof of the East Laying House, in his Majesty's Dock- yard at this port, and apparently, to those who first discovered it, burst forth in several places at the same time. An alarm was instantly given by the firing of the sentinels on duty in the yard, and on board the Salvador del Mundo guard ship, in Hamoaze, when every assistance was rendered as early and promptly as possible ; but before any ef- feftual force could be brought to operate,' the flames had made considerable progress, and burnt with incredible fury ; and, notwithstanding the considerable supply of water and the exertions used at the . engines, the fire was not subdued un- til 7 o'clock this morning. Fortunately, there were scarcely any stores in the building, but the machinery therein has been mostly destroyed or materially injured ; the building is upwards of 1,400 feet in length, and the fire having broke out about the centre, it was found necessary in order to preserve any part of it, to cut off, as much as possible, at each extremity, whereby about 400 feet of the premises were saved. We have not heard that any " lives were lost on the occasion, though some of the persons aflively employed re. received injury, one of whom, a sailor, had the fingers of one hand entirely cut off. The cau^ e of this catastrophe is not stated', but it is sincere- ly hoped to have been merely accident. The da- mage done is estimated at from 20 to £ 30,000. LETTER FROM MRS. BELLINGHAM- To the Editor of the Statesman. SIR— It is not without deep regret that I feel the painful necessity of obtruding myself into public notice at a time, and under circumstances, which make retirement, and oblivion of the past, peculiarly desirable. In several of the public prints my name has been brought forward in vari- ous ways, without my knowledge, and in a man- ner I could never have approved. In a Dublin Paper, and some others, a Comic Opera has been advertised, entitled, " St. Patrick's Night," to be published for the benefit of me and my children. I have not, however, received the slightest inti- mation from any of my relations or friends, of such intention, and hope it will not be carried in- to effect; and solemnly pledge myself not to re- ceive any part of the profit that may arise from it. I shall in a few words declare, that I have never solicited any public subscription, nor given my consent to any such that may have been publicly advertised. My friends are well acquainted with my situation, as tp pecuniary matters ; and are kindly shewing every disposition to relieve me frt m the great difficulties in which I am involv- ed, There are other causes of distress, which can only be alleviated by time and removed by death. I hope, Sir, you will do me the justice to insert this in the Statesman, and am Youi obedient Servant, MARY BLLLIKGHAM. 6, Duke- strtet, Liverpool, June 6. . The Earl of Donoughmore retvme 1 the fol- lowing answer to the Address ot the Catholics of Ireland, presented by their Delegates on the 8th of June, 1812: ?' . » - GENTLKMKN— In expressing those grateful acknowledj. j ments,-' Which are so justly due for the marked and unmerited kindm- s*, with which you have h « en pleased to distinguish my humble endeavours in'yotir- cattse,- 4t becomes my grati • , lying duty to recal to your recol'eflion, that if is now 17 years since the same partiality to mv family and to myself, assigned to me the proud and conspicuous situation of vour hereditary advocate. In this post- of'honour you find me still. After fhe 1 ipse of - a - period so truly interesting both at home and abroad, so pregnant w: th great and important events; and unless I shail have forgotten, what I owe to my own character and consi& ensyt. and to those constitutional principles which are coeval wTth' thi commencement of my Parliamentary life, I will never. d « sert the assertion of your jiist claims, till the approach to" every political power, and privilege shall be thrown , op » n . t « Catholic loyally and ta- lent, as to those of the favf> ured'membei; s of the Protestant community. The irresistible ascendency if that powerful aristocracy of wealth, talent, and constitutional integrity, under whose banmrs I haVe fought the. battle of vOnr emancipation, has insured for you and for the country the complete and speedy triumph of religious liberty. " Ev^ w the* Ministers them- selves, to adopt your own nervous and appropriate language, have already lowered the coloured intolerance, and perhaps you must be prepared tolwitnps$, as nat the least wonder of these eventful timet, the rump qf y^ ur old acquaintance, the Anri- Cathnlie Administration,' in the suddenly assumed charter ef reformed patrons of liberality, stretching forth ibeir unwilling hands to loose the - fetters oT their Catholic fellow- suhjefis, which it had. been * he principle and. the pride of their former Government to resist, for the . security, as t. hey thought fit toalledge, of the Protestant. state, offering them- selves again as candidates for the confidence of the public, under a new form, cl ansed as it were by regeneration, from the taint of all their old and inveterate habits, and deposit- ing at the threshold, before their new assumption of office, airthose. incoiivenient pledges and embarrassing consistencies, which might encumber or impede the happy course of their triumphant career. For myself, from whatever qitarter the reform from any of the present giievnncej of the people shall be offered to the consideration of Parirment, ( shall ever be found a ready and a zealous feUow labourer in the same vineyard. And therefore, whenever any definite measure » f matured and pratSica'. reform, with relation to any exiting public griev- ance, shall be off- red for my adoption, though it should take its rise in the vey persons of the late A ministration, with all it » political suis upon its head, it shall have my prompt and most i;. nquivical support, without so much as stopping to question th-: novel motives of the proposer, however pro blematic il. they may appear, and let the measure come, as it Would do ivsuch a case, in however questionable shape. But if the : » ood, to the attainment of which we may be taught to look, should ba in expe& ance only, or dependent upon - the professioss of : he Ministers that are to be— or if,^ as in the case of your emancipation, the mere consideration of the subjetft may mean nothing but an empty shadow, j whilt the nature of some equivalent to be exailed from the Catholic, obviously hostile, perhaps, to the principles of his religisa, would constitute the real essence of the thing to be Considered, and which, if opened to you at the moment, with just and liberal candour, must ensure and demand your une- quivocal and instant rejection of the proffered measure : in any si> ch case as this is the remnant of the late Anti Catho- lic Administration, however compounded, or hawevtr blend- ed with better materials than themselves, entitled to call upon the Catholic Bivdy, or npon me as their zealous and watchtul friend, for any thing bordering upon a confiding sentiment? Is it not. oil the contrary, the most unconfiding j » alo( jsy, the just and ieg: umate prinaiple by which we ought,- each and every of o>. to regulate our opinions and our con- dud, in the novel and unprecedented circumstances under Which we are res;., fi ,-,.-! y pi iced? What 1 have off.- ri d to you upon this the most momen- tous consideration that can be -. ddressed to any public, to any thinking body of men, I have written merely upon the spur of the occasion, wi- hout it being possible for me to obtain any correal information, as to what may or may not be the fate of this, or the fate of any one of those fanciful theories, which have bser of late exhibited to the public in pretty rapid successio, as new receipts for the formation of broad bottomed Administrations— but which can be de- vised by their original formers on no other principle but this, the endeavours to degrade in the esti. natiou of all political men, of whatever professed opinions or party, for the purpose of heaping additional and irresistible weight and authority on the administration of the executive functions. But it is very possible that. the theory for the formation of a Government, to which I have been applying these ar- guments, and which is 24 hours ,') d,- may have already given way to some more recent experiment. Or, perhaps, the state may be fated to be left a little longer to hobble on, as. it has been suffered to do fpr nearly a month, under the supreme authority of the executive power, without the in- tervention of any one constitutionally authorised responsible adviser whatsoever. Into whatever soil of legitimate Government the present political anomaly shall at length settle, it will become your bounden duty, to weigh the professions of those who may undertake the administration of it, whatever they may be, with just constitutional jealousy, and, with respeil to your otf- ii particular measure, you. will not receive as the proceed-, ing ot Irieiidiy Government's the postponement of ihe ques- tion of your Emancipation to another Session, unless accom- panied by some tin. quivecal pledge from the Executive Gofc vernment, and from both" Houses of Parliament, of its ulti- mate, speedy, and complete accomplishment. You have thus exhibited before you, without colour or disguise, every impression of my mind at a crisis, more deep- ly interesting to your future prospe& s than any which you have witnessed before.. The peculiar . circumstances under which it became my duty to open arfd enforce in the npper House of Parliament the prayer of tht Petition, which you had confided to me, of necessity demanded on my part the use of the energetic and bold, though constitutional language. Your unequivo- cal adoption in their full force, of these the sentiments of your advocate, is truly gratifying to my mind, and a valued pledge of your undiminished confidence.

Indeed, the peculiar arrangement affords a facility to conjeflnre, riot easily to be found on other occasions ; for, the old Ministers being re- established, without any known acces- sion of strength, the only alteration that takes place, consists in a few changes of situations which j are easily traced — NEW MINISTRY.

I-,<— PARLIAMENT, HOUSE OF COMMONS. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10. Mr. N. VANSITTART took his seat as Chancel- lor of the Exchequer, and was introduced between Sir C. Price and Sir James Shaw. Mr. O'HARA moved that the name of the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer be added to the Irish Fi- nance Committee, appointed to examine into the state of the accounts between Great Britain and Ireland. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER consent- ed, and moved that Mr. O'Hara's name be also added. On the question being put, Sir JOHN NEWPORT impressed upon the House the necessity of the Committee proceeding to some efficient step, as nothing had been in real- ty done during the present Session. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER said, he should, on Friday next, move, in a Com- mittee of Ways and Means, the army extraordi- naries, and the remainder of the miscellaneous services. After some conversation on the subjeft, Mr. Brougham fixed his motion on the Trade and Manufaffures of Great Britain, for Tuesday next; and Mr, Canning his motion on the Catholic dis- abilities for the Thursday following. THE ROMAN CATHOLICS. Mr. SPENCER STANHOPE, seeing the Noble Lord in his place, observed, " I wish to put to him a question on a most important sub- jeft, whether it is the policy of the present Cabi- net to pursue the same measures with regard to the Roman Catholics, that were adopted by the last Admistration, and not to listen to any thing regarding their claims!" Lord CASTLEREAGH replied—" I feel much more difficulty in answering the Hon. Gen- tleman's question—( Hear, hear, and laughing)— because the arrangements of Government not be_ ing yet completed, I am not able to speak m1. leflively of the whole Cabinet; but I have no difficulty in mentioning what I consider to be the general sentiments of the persons likely to form the Administration. It certainly was the opi- nion of the last Administration, that, consider- ing the temper of the times, and the state of the sister Island, for various reasons, the sub- jefl should not be agitated, as being more likely to disturb than to conciliate the kingdom.— But the individuals to whom I refer as likely to form the new Cabinet, are of opinion, that a marked change of sentiment, has been disclos- ed, and that discussion on the subject ought no longer to be resisted, ( Hear, heart) and! that no opposition ought to be directed to any question on this subject, that the individual members m ay think desirable. The Members, therefore, of the present Government will feel themselves to be at perfect liberty to act as they judge proper, and the influence of the Government will not be lent * to either side of the question." He himself, as one individual, would take such steps as he should deem expedient. Mr. CALCRAFT spoke to order, objecting to the Noble Lord's making a speech, but his in- In the last page of this day's Paper will be found, a full report of the Debate in the House of Lords, on thff failure of the late negociations for fotming a rew and efficient Administration The explanations of Lords GREY and GRENVILLE and of the Marquis WELLESLEY and Lord MOIRA on this occasion, are peculiarly interesting. j The London Papers of Thursday the 11th ar- 1 rived this morning by express from Donaghadee ' ference was superseded by the general sentiment and contain the following interesting intelligence! ; 0t the House. Lord CASTLEREAGH resumed, that he should aft on that important question, in the way that appeared to him best calculated to grati- fy the country, and to conciliate Ireland. He re- peated, in terms of strong assurance, that the in- fluenee of Government, would not he interferetf on either side of the question, and no resistance would be made either to discussion or to conces- sion, if the one or both were thought nececs: r \.—— ( Hear, hear.)— The subjeft was then dropp ' ij.

MINUTE OF A CONVERSATION BETWEEN LORD MOIRA, AND LORDS GREY AND GRENVILLE, AT WHICH LORD ERSKINE WAS PRESENT. Lord Moira stated to Lord Grey and Lord Grenville that ihat he was authorized by the Prince Regent to consult wiih them on the formation of- a new Government; and satisfaflory explanation* having taken place between them, respefting such measures as appeared to be of the greatest urgency at the present moment, more especially with re- ference to the situation of his Majesty's Roman Catholic subjefts, and the differences now unhap- pily subsisting with America, and that Lord Moira hatLceceived this commission without any restriftion or limitation whatever being laid Ky the Prince on their considering any points which they judged useful for his service, they expressed their satisfaftion with the fairness of this proposal, and their readiness to enter into such discussions as must precede the details of any new arrange, ment. As a preliminary question which appear, ed to them of great importance, and which they thought it necessary immediately to bring forward,. to prevent the inconvenience and embarrassment of the further delay which might be produced if this negotiation should break off in a m< ne ad- vanced s'ate, they asked, whether this full liberty extended to the consideration r. f new appointment* to those great Offices of the Household, which have been usually included in the political arrange- ments made in a change of Administration i Inti- mating their opinion, that it would be. necessary to" aft on the same principle on the present occasion, l. ord Moira answered, that the Prince had laid- no restriction upon him in that respect, and had never pointed in the most distant manner, at the protection of those Officers from removal; That it would, however, be impossible for him'( Lord Moira), to concur in making the exercise of this power positive and indispensable in the formation of the Administration, because be should deem it, on public grounds, peculiarly objectionable,— To this Lords Grey and Grenville replied, they also acted on public grounds alone, and with no" other feeling whatever, than that which arose from the necessity of giving to a new Gover v ment that character of efficiency and stability, and those marks of the constitutional support of the Crown, which are required to enable it to act usefully for the public service ; and that on these grounds it appeared to them indispensible, that the connection of the great offices of the Court with the Administration should be clearly est?. » blished in its first arrangements. A decided dif- ference of opinion, as to this point, having been, thus expressed on both sides, the conversation ended here with mutual declarations of regret Nothing was said on the subject of official ar- rangements, nor any persons proposed on either side, to fill any particular situations.

The following letter was posted up at Lloyd's, on Wednesday evening: " The Baltic, June 8; " We had letters yesterday from Hano, and I am glad to find the Orion's convoy all got safe through the Belt, although the enemy's privateer* were troublesome. « ' Letters from Riga, of the 18th tilt, state, that the Russian ports were to be opened to us, but the Customs, and other Authorities, had not ret ceived their instruftions. " Reports from two or three houses men^ iorr, that the Russians were at Memel, and that the French had occupied Pillau ; but Colberg, and the other sea ports were still kept by Prussians. The French seem to occupy all the forts of that un. happy country, and I am far from thinking that they have any good design in not possessing them- selves of the sea- ports, imagining that their mo- tives of forbearance are with a view to facilitate the entry of grain, a want of whieit begins to press very heavy on that miserable state. « One hundred and fifty vessels from Pillau, Memel, & c. had entered Riga, to procure grain, within the last six weeks, and this is the cause of the Russian Government prohibiting the exporta- tion." Extract of a Letter from Riga, dated IGth May, new stile. " The ports of this empire are now open to all flags, and the necessary orders have been given to that effeft to all Port Admirals, The exports of grain from all ports of the Empire, continue pro- hibited until the 15th June j but merchants de- sirous of exporting grain', may petition the Em- peror, through the Governors of their respeftive distrifts, who has reserved to himself the decision of such petitions. " War with France is inevitable, and in faft quite decided upon, but - we are - without fears as to the result, as our preparations for the ev;' nt we complete And most formidable. Never was Russia equally prepaied to meet the enemy. Upon die above imelligiuctt jou may depend." BELFAST COMMERCIAL CHROtflCLtf Br a gentleman who has reached London from Prnssia, we learn some singular advantages under which the French Commissariat contracts for corn. All vessels, containing this commodity, in the Prussian ports, are seized : a valuation is made of the cargo, at the discretion of the French, and the buyers are paid in bills on the Treasury at Paris, which are to become due in the year 1816 ; but this is not sufficient— before payment is given, both the old contribution and the new contribu- tion, are deduced from the amount, in propor- tions, adjusted by the same discretion. The bills so applied, are already at a discount of 72 per cent. His Royal Highness the Prince Regent in con- sequence of the recommendation of his Grace the Duke of Richmond, has been pleased to grant the Deanery of Clonfert to the Rev. Dr. Haw- kins, son of the late Bishop of Raphoe, vacated by the death of the Rev. Dean Digby. The Prince Regent has at length prevailed on Lord Moirs to accept the Garter i but his Lord- ship has accepted it only as a mark of respeit for his Royal Highness— and on the distinct under- standing that it is not to pledge him in any re- tpefl to the present Ministers. _ A Proclamation has been issued by his sable Majesty of Haytf, ^- evious to entering into a war. It is a most amusing production, and an excellent parody on the manifestoes , of Napoleon. From the manifest of the cargo of the Hussar, M'Pherson, now cleared out in the Clyde for Ja- maica, it appears she ha; on board upwards of one million and a half yards of cotton and linen poods, besides considerable quantities of linen- thread, hosiery, boots, shoes, saddlery, hats, flint- glass, candles, soap, stationary, Sec. The news of an American war, mentioned in the London papers, to have been sent from Liver- pool, is contradi& ed. On Saturday, the Pembroke Riflemen, about 300 strong, arrived in town, and this morning marched for Carrickfergus, wheie they are to be stationed. _ The IDerry Militia, we are informed, march from this on Thursday next, for Enniskillen They are to be succeeded by a regiment of Eng- lish Militia. SNAILS— Owing to the wet season every garden swarms with snails, slugs. & c.; the following extract from a late Publication may be well worth the attention of Gentlemen and Ga~ dners: " A Gentleman at Fulham, ivho had taken great pains in cultivating a large kitchen garden, was greatly pestered with snails; so much so, that he had collected a bushel in a morning, and could not keep them under. This evil was to be attributed in some measure to a quickset hedge, which separated his land from some adjoining grounds belonging to a market- gardener. Soap, ashes were spread on a strawberry border, next the hedge ; and, in twenty- four hours, there was not a trail to be seen on the border, or in the hedge. These enemies to vegetation did not re- turn that summer or autumn ; and by occasion- ally using the soap- ashes, the ground is now en- tirely freed from snails in the most wet and hot seasons." g « . i gg*? n lit EDITOR of tU BELFAST CHRONICLE. Shi— It is with much reluctance, that I am • gain obliged, through the medium of your Paper, to trespass on the public ; but as Mr. Johnson wishes by his statement of the 10th inst, to make it appear that I owe him money, I am once more forced to reply to him, and to state that, since his return from Derry, I have repeat- edly sent to him for a final statement of his ac- count, as I could not acquiesce in those he fur- nished me with } and though he knew that I was Obliged to leave Magherafelt on the very day his Itatement is dated, I have not yet been able to procure his account. I therefore think Mr. John- son sh « uld have furnished me with the account, before he ventured on a second publication ; for, it he were not aware that there is a balance in my favour, why should he delay furnishing me with the account I required, and which he pro- mised to do, to the Gentleman I first sent to him for that purpose, the day after his return home I am, Sir, your obedient Servant, AKCHD.

The Earl of LIVERPOOL said, that before he moved the question of adjournment, in answer to a query from a Noble Duke opposite ( Norfolk) on a former night, lie thought it necessary to state to the House, that that morning his Royal High- ness the Prince Regent, afting in the name and on behalf of his Majestv, had been graciously pleased to appoint him ( Lord Liverpool) First Lord Commissioner of the Treasury, and to sig- nify^ fis most gracious pleasure that the rest of the seats in the Cabinet should be filled np by him ( Lord Liverpool). The Earl of MOIR A said, it was his intention to have anticipated the Noble Earl, by stating to the House the event of his negociation. On the failure of that one which was entrusted to the Marquis Wellesley, he ( Lord Moira) undertook the task of carrving the a* dent wishes of'the Prince Regent into effeft, for the formation of a Ministry. In the present situation of the country, however, he considered it ai no ordinarv trust. He felt it to be most difficult. The filling up of offices with men of talent, in the present state of in'elleftual improvement in this countrv, he felt to be no dif- j ficult task: but in the conduft of this business it behoved him to be aware that no suspicion should arise that he was pursuing a deviation from those great political principles, which, amidst all par- ties, he had always considered as essential to the public good. On that account he did not suc- ceed ; and he considered it a most lamentable thing, becanse those who are to have the manage- ^ to a statement of all that he kn w Pient of public affairs seem not to possess that 11 however stated simDlv. tl . which is most essential, particularly in the present state of the country, namely, the confidence of the people. But one ground for consolation he had, that by all parties he had been met with the ut- most frankness; and there was still anoth r ground of consolation, ihat the Prince Regent did exert himself to the very utmost, without the smallest reservation, to satisfy the wishes of the people in every respeCt. For himself, he had only to sav, that he should feel it his duty to support any Ad- min's'ration, if iheir measures were not at variance with those great political opinions, which he had offereexoressed in that House. The Duke of NORFOLK said, that the Ad- dress of the House of Commons wished his Royal Highness to appoint a strong and efficient Admi- nistration, meaning, of course, thereby, thaf the present was not efficient for the conduct ol the Government. Before he sat down, thereforey he wished to advert to the probability of a war with America, and wished to know why an Address should not be immediately presented to the Prince Regent, requesting him to direft that the Orders in Council should be rescinded. The Earl of LIVERPOOL said, that wiih re- speft to the Address of the other House, it was for a strong and extended Administration.—( Cries of efficient from the Opposition.)— In consequence of this Address, he stated to the Prince Regent that he and his colleagues would be no bar to( the formation of what might be considered a strong and efficient Administration. He trusted the House would do him th? justice to believe, that he had no wish to he an obstacle in the war of anv arrangement which might be satisfactory to the Prince Regent, and beneficial to the country. " He should have thought, after all that had passed in endeavours to accomplish that without effeCt, that he was shrinking from a duty which he owed to the Prince and to the country, if' he had refused the present appointment. With respeft to Ame- rica, by the latest information there were certain- ly farther instances of hostile intention, on the part of the Legislature, towards this country -, but he knew of no aft of hostility which had yet taken • place. With respeft to the Orders in Council, the House was now approaching towards the close of an inquiry into them, and it would be for the House to consider and judge, on a full and fair view of that subjeft, of what was best to be done for the interests of this country, and the justice due to the other. The Duke of NORFOLK was glad to hear that war had not actually taken place be. ween the two countries. Marquis WELLESLEY said, that he under- stood on the night when he informed the House that he had failed in his mission, it was agreed on all hands, for the better carrying into cffefl the Vote of the Commons, that no discussion should then take place on this subjeft. He appeared be- fore them now with the same authority as on that day, and was ready to enter point by point into the detail of all that had b( en done by him, in bis endeavours to form a new and efficient Ad- ministration.—" My Lords, my objeft was through 0111 this negotiation, that three great principles should form the basis of tl e proposed arrange- ment : — First, that the laws affecting his Majesty's Roman Cuholic subj- fts should be taken into consideration, with a view to a conciliatory ad justment. Secondly, that the war in the Peninsula should be carried on wiih adequate vigour. And thirdly, that the Administration to be formed should not consist of the talents, the opinions, or the strength of one party ; that the strength of one party should not be the strength of the coun- try ; that ti e opinions of a party should not be the system of the country; but that, in the present complication of parties and opinions, the Admi nistration should be formed from all parties of in dividuals agreeing in the first two principles have mentioned, anU coming to an arrangement upon other nutters. Now, with respeft to an ex pression which I Uied on the evening alluJed to, to which, subsequently, much reference was made and which it seems was stated by a Noble Fi iend of mine ( though, as he mentioned, without a iy authority from me), ( o have diopped from me inadvertently.. The expression to which I allude was that of " dreadful personal animosities."— j My Lords, in what 1 stated to the House, I hum- I bly advised your Lordships not to call for that I disclosure which I was then ready to make, bt. 1 cause it would tend to iriiiate and inflame those dteadful personal animosities which had already existed in the course of the negociation. In using this expression, I have no hesitation in stat- ing that I used it advisedly, and that I applied this teim znimosities to the Noble Earl ( Liver- pool) and his colleagues, for it was from their tondutf that the only obstacles arose to the ar. I rangement vhich I proposed to make." He did not attribute that unwillingness to facilitate this great objeft as a crime to the Noble Earl and his friends, nor did he think it arose f om any dis- honourable motive; he merelv stated it as a fail. He wished to ask the Noble L^ rrl, if lie did not, when he resigned his mission, recommend to the Prince Regent to open again the negoctation with the " Noble Lords near him ( Grey and Grenville) t This was a faft which was necessary to be known, that he might stand clear before their Lordships; and that he never ha I departed from those prin- ciples ' which are recorded of him ; because he thought that no Administration could exist that did not give immediate consideration to the Claims of the Catholics, and « hich did not carry on the War in Spain with increased vigour. It was also his opinion, that the adoption of no one party alone could carry us throngh our present difficul- ties. The Earl of HARROWBY said, that as one of the party, against whom so great a chatge had been made by the Noble Marquis, he must say, that it was not fitting that all the facilities should be supposed to have come from the Noble Mar- quis, and none have been afforded by them, If that Noble Marquis was prepared to prove his charges, let him come forward then before the country, for the first time, and do so. He called upon him to state, whether the charges of " dread- ful personal animosities," had been loosely thrown out by him or not ? Marquis WELLESLEY said, that one would have thought by the tone of the Noble Earl that he ( Lord Wellesley) was not prepared to enter in- on this subjeft. He had simply, that all obstacles j which he met with arose from the Noble Earl's i Friends.— That Noble Earl then had alluded to ' words of his used on a former night, and called him to answer, as if he had skulked out ot the way to avoid explaining them. He had seen an ordinary report of the speeeh of a Noble Fiiend of his, who stated them to have been used inad- erten ly. He was sure that Noble Lord ( Bor- ringdon) was too correct to luve used the word unadvisedly. On that occasion he ( Lord Welles- ly) was merely dissuading the House from enter- ing further on a discussion which might tend to revive the dreadful personal animosities which he had met with. He had not used those words un- advisedly ; upon his honour, he had not ; but he had used them, as he had thought the faft was ad- mitted by all his Majesty's Government. He would state to the House why these obstacles arose, to the just termination of this importaut business, and why, in his opinion, they were grounded on personal animosities— The first principles, as the asis on whVeh a firm Administration was to have been founded, were handed by himself to Lords Grey and Grenville, and by an Hon. Friend of his to Lord Liverpool.— [ Here h; s Lordship read both his propositions, namely, the immediate con- sideration of the laws respecting the Catholics; j and the carrying on the war on a scale of adequate I igour. j The answer of Lords Grey and Gren- j ville was, that in the present state of the country, I it was their duty to abandon all personal feelings, ; in order to give effefl to th? late vote of the House ' of Commons. The answer of Loi'd Liverpool to the proposition of his Honourable Friend was, that he had communicated the proposal to his col- leagues, and they all felt indisposed to form any part of an Administration, after what had pass- ed, which was to be formed by Lord Wellesley : and in another part, he declined the offer, " more pecially as he does not w Mi to enter into a ques- tion of personal feeling."—( Hair, hear).— On these grounds he did state distinctly, that he had met with obstacles from the N'ble Lords, and that thev arose from personal motives. The Earl of HARROWBY said, if the Noble Lords who ailed with him bad been capable of re- fusing to form part of an Administration so to be constituted, on personal grounds, they would have much to answer to the country and themselves. He was, however, still at a loss to learn how a re- fusal to join an Administration to be formed by any one, was to be construed into grounds of per- sonal animosity. The opiniorf which the Noble Marquis expressed of the Government, when he left the Cabinet, rendered it impossible for him ( Lord H ) for one, to aft with him ; for he had published to the world that they were totally de- void of sense or knowledge, and that he had been thwarted in the Cabinet on the most important subjects. He appealed to his colleagues, if for two years they must not have been in a dream, fancying that they were all that time going on in the same opinion with the Noble Marquis. The Marquis WELLESLEY denied the faCt of his having published that paper at the time of his going out of office; it was hastily drawn up by some of his friends from conversations. Ap- plication was several times made for its being printed, which was decidedly negatived ; and he never was more thunderstruck than when he saw it in print. He declared upon his honour that he would have given any sum to have prevented its publication. When he met the Noble Lords op- posite, he stated to ihem at Carlton House that it was rather unmanly to have gone there three times, after he ha^ tendered his resignation, to have him superseded, without informing him whereas,, if they had, he would have resigned sooner, and have given them every facility. The Noble Lord had said that he ( Lord Wellesley) had always agreed with them in the Cabinet.— Now he thought that he had there shewn his ill- humour on some occasions quite enough to shew that he did not like their proceedings. But if ever he got among them again he would take care to cot reft that error. Lord HARROWBY expressed in a few words in a low tone of voice, his complaints of the very injurious efftfts of the Noble Marquis's statement respefting the late Mr. Perceval. Lord WELLESLEY disc'aimed, in the most positive manner, any assent to, or knowledge of, its publication, and his greatest displeasure al that event. Earl GREY—" In the greater portion of this interesting discussion, having no concern, I should not have in erfered, but lor one circumstance The Noble Marquis has acted with his usual il !| tion carried conviction to mv mind, and I believe !| to that of. the House—( Hear, hear), that the J words were not used inadvertently ; and if I had | entertained a hope that they were unfotirKled, the speeeh of the Noble F. ari ( Har- owby) would have completely disappointed it ; for although in the first instance he indignantly pleaded not guil- ty to the charge of personal animosity, he oc- cupied nearly the whole of his address, not in a denial of its existence, but in a statement of lan- guage and reasoning in justification of the feel- ing which operated upon him and his friends in rejecting the proposal made by the Noble Mar- quic. I admit that it is painful to be convinced that personal animosity, in tirr. es like these, can be found to agitate any bosom ; but I am gratifi- ed at the proceeding we have this nigllt witnessed, because it has given my Noble Friend an oppor- tunity of giving an explanation regarding the publication of a certain p ipei which has relieved him from the charge of impropriety, and it has besides removed from the mind of the Noble Earl opposite a most oppressive burden. No al- lusion having been made to my conduct, or to that of my friends, during these transactions, I should not now have risen to trouble the House, were it not for a remark that dropped from the Noble Earl ( Harrowbv), towards the conclusion of his speech. He stated, that in consequence of the Vote of the House of Commons, declaring t'- em inefficient, his Noble Friends had deemed it pro- per to resign the situations which they then occu- pied, and to which they are now restored. In my judgment they acted right and constitutional- ly in so doing, and if this conduct had been dif- ferent they would have set an example that might have been fatal to the practice of the Constitution. But it now appears that they are replaced in those offices, and having before thought it their duty to withdraw, they now feel it equally their duty to resume situations from which they had been driven by a vote of^ the House of Commons, which declared them incapable of conducting the affairs of the nation. They have now, however, retaken their seats, that the Government may not fall into the hands of persons of whose principles and measures, according to their assertions, the country universally disapproves. It may perhaps be necessary that I should enter more at large into the reasons which governed my conduct, and as a key and explanation to them, I beg to state, that the attempts made to form an Administra- tion, as far as we were included, were made upon the following terms. That we should be morally certain that the principles which we have maintained and acted upon through life would be over- ruled in the Cabinet.—( Hear, hea'.) I had a strong suspicion ( and I will fairly con- fess that the exisence of such a feeling as suspi- cion did operate upon my mind, with regard to the proposal made) of that which has now been distinftly and uneqiiivocallv granted, either that we were not to be ad;> itted into the Cabinet at all, or that we were to be bound down in such a man. ner ( liat the public should have security, that the principles Mid measures to which, during our whole parliamentary existence, we have been pledged, should, be decidedly over- ruled. Was this, I appeal to the House, I appeal to the Conn- try, a fit, a decent proposal for us to accept ?— ( Hear, hear.) What is there in my conduft, what is there in my life, which should induce even a mo- mentary belief, that I would consent to degrade myself into an instrntrent, a tool, to accomplish the ers >—( Hear, hear). Was it really believed that I would now support measures I have strenuously and uniformly condemned ? Shall I permit myself for an instant to indulge the idea, that any man could dare to hope that for the des. picable emoluments of office, I would barter the principles that have actuated my life, or that I would now at once abandon those m » asures which, in my opinion ( formed after no little labour and ex- perience) are essential to the salvation of the State ? ( Hear, hear.) My L rds, I wish to make no lofty pretensions to disinterestedness: I ask for nothing but what I have a right to claim : my life is before my country, and mv countrymen shall be my judges—( Hear, hear, hear). But I am aware that I have a duty to perform to my friends, and a duty to dischar ge to my co intry— to those friends, to whose steady and honourable attachment I owe so much, and to that country whose misfortunes and whose miseries I so deeply deplore. There is no man more anxious than myseif, as far as is consistent with my honour, to outstretch a feeble bu; a ready hand to save the sinking nation : whenever my humble services are callecl for, there is no danger that shall appal me, no difficulty from which I shall shrink—( Hear, hear). Give me leave, however, my Lords, to remark, that I stand in a situation in which I am justified in saying, that unless I am called to Go- vernment consistently with the principles I have throughout professed— unless I am allowed to re- commend and support measures in the Cabinet that I have recommended and snppo ted in the House— unless I can still aft with that honour it has been my pride hitherto to maintain, there is no extremity of poverty which I would not em- brace with cheerfulness, and no accumulation of misery that I would not endure with resignation, rather than consent by the abandonment of cha- rafter to lose that by which dignity and wealth should ever be accompanied—( Hear, hear). For myself, my Lords, I will never become one of any Government, unless I have complee Security and assurance that the principles I have professed shall be fully and fairly discussed, and the mea- ures adopted ; and with these sentiments, I have now little prospeft of being called to the Councils of my Sovereign. I would rather at any time enjoy mental tranquillity than personal ease, and resting on the bosom of my country, I shall pity her sorrows, and lament that I am not per- mitted to attempt their relief.—( Hear, hear.)— I lamented in the speech of the Noble Earl oppo- site ( Harrowby) to witness a spirit which, in these distressful times, cannot be too much deprecated, and which was far from the mode in which it has been met on this side of the House. I impute nathing to design, but certainly the contrast is striking. In my intercourse with the Noble Mar. quis, and with my Noble Fiiend ( Moira) I have discovered nothing but an unceasing and earnest manliness in coming forward, not to explain, but i; desire to conciliate; they had nothing in view to re- assert with justifiable distinctness the expres- : but the general good, and I am persuadedth. it sions he employed on a former occasion ( Hear, j( they were not themselves aware of the secret hear.)—: the statement he lias made in confirms- management of which they were the instruments, and I am as confident of the fact as I am of nv own existence, that the procrastination an ! delay so m rch to be regretted, has arisen from no other c: vtse than an anxiety to form an administration calculated to retrieve the n ition from i s present calamities. But are they to compel us to resign securities which we conceive necessary to the pre- servation of our honour ?—( Hear, hear.)— Thus much, my Lords, I felt myself bound to sav, in consequence of what fell from the Noble Earl, and, in conclusion, 1 have only to request that your Lordships will bear in mind, that when at- tempts were made to induce us to join the new Administration, it was ot^ lv to be accornp'ished by a departure from principle, to the maintenance of which we have pledged our lives, and what I trust is still'dearer, our honour." Earl MOIRA.—" The Noble Lord who has just taken his seat, has made allusions to transac- tions in which I was concerned as the authorised negociator, in which he has contended, that I was imposed upon. He has given me all credit for candour and liberality, but I shall not consent to be paid off by this general compliment to my honour at the expence of my understanding ; I shall not be satisfied with being told that I con- ducted myself with frankness, but that I was only a dupe, and that I was not aware of the designs to which I was instrumental. I assure the House that I would never have undertaken the negocia- tion at all, if there had been a single particle of reservation in the authority with which I was en- trusted.—( Hear!)— I appeal to your Lordships, after the evidence I have given, knowing, as you do, the confidence reposed in my advice, by the illustrious Personage who now presides over the State ; when I have proved to you and to the country that no seduction of power, no object even of honourable ambition, could induce me to recommend to the Prince Regent any Admi- nistration I did not think competent to iks dan- ger of the times ; I say I appeal to your Lord- ships whether you believe it possible that I could commence so arduous an undertaking with my hands tied, as the Noble Lord h:: s described, or so blind as not to comprehend the nature of the pro position I was commissioned to make ?—( Hear. — Is it fit that such general and indefinite asser- tions should be made ? I call upon the Noble Lord to state distinftly and explici: iy the point to which he alludes.—( Hear)— I do insist, in the face of the world, that through the whole progress of my negociation with the Noble Earl and the Noble Lord I stated, beyond the possibility of misapprehension, that my instructions were of the most liberal and unlimited nature. The whole of the transactions shall, however, appear before the public, and ihey shall judge whether I attempted any imposition, or any imposition was attempted upon me. The transactions from beginning to end were condufted with an austerity of fairness, if I may use the phrase, which is, pethaps, unpar- alleled. I claim of the Noble Earl a statement of the particular, that I may repel it in as haughty a tone as he ventured to assert it. My Lords, I feel that I have not deserved this reproach ; it is a disgrace which I do not merit, and which I can- not bear: if he can bring forward but the shadow of proof that even unknowingly, I submitted to be made such an instrument, 1 will bow my head to his reproof, and to the degradation that muat ensue ; if he cannot, ' I will repel the blow as proudly as ' twas giv n." Personally to the Noble Eatl I address nothing ; he has spoken of me as a public man, afting in a public capacity, and I demand of him, as a public man, a further ex- planation ; for according to my judgment, per- haps imperfeft, I have discharged my duty with a proud severity of conscience. I state again, that there never was on the most insignificant point the slightest reservation, or hint of reservation : the powers given to me were complete and ample, and wherever limited, they were limited only by my own sense of what was due to the public. I now call upon the Noble Earl more satisfactorily to explain his meaning." Earl GREY.—" In what I addressed to your Lordships, I meant to guard myself most cau- tiously against personal imputations; above all, against such as could be directed to the Noble Earl. The tone, however, that has been assumed in replying to my remarks, shall not prevent me from stating that which I deem correft. The Noble Earl and the House knows that of his in- tegrity and honour I never had the slightest sus- picion ; nor do I ventu e an insinuation to their disparagement. Not only has such been my con- duft in this place, but I appeal to my friends round me, with Whom I have privately conversed, whether an expression of that natuie ever escaped me ( Hear, hea'r.)— However erroneous I have thought jhis judgment, which was never swayed but by the generosity of his heart, I have ever paid a profound reverence to his motives. I am really at a loss how to state to the House the impression made. upon my mind by the whole of these transactions, in any way that will carry with it conviction. It is true I have constantly re- marked an unwillingress to come to the point, not on the part of the Noble Earl, not on the part of the Noble Marquis, but on the part of the in- dividual who was to give effect to the negociation they had conducted. What is the history of these transactions? The Noble Marquis, in the first in- stance, made the proposal to us which he has this night read to the House. Was our answer to be termed a rejection of the proposition ? For a whole week we had no communication from the Noble Lord, and the next intimation we received from him was, that his commission was suspended In what was that interval of a week employed ? Not to introduce us into the Councils of the Pnnce, but to attempt to conned the Noble Marquis with Noble Lords whom I now see on the side of the House, to our exclusion.—( I doubt not that the Noble Lord afted right making the proposal ; I have already stated to the House that proposal, and I have the satisfac- tion of believing, that there was not a Peer pre- sent, whether my political friends or my adver- saries, who was not convinced, that to such an offer we could not have with honour consented. How stood our affairs in the commencement ? His Majesty's Government was continued in the hope of the recovety of the King, but at the same time we received assurances, that if his Royal Fa- ther should not be restoted, and the Prince should assume the reins of Government, he would aft i upon those principles he had formerly entertain- ed, and that the commission with which he hai at first been entrusted should be restored. Co; • scions of nothing tint could indoce his Rova1 j Highness to reeal his gracious purpose, we did ; entertain hopes of being indulged with the, cor. j fijence of our Sovereign.—/ Hear, hear..)— We ' were disappointed ; yet to t(: e first proposition made by the Noble Marquis, tonfessedly without authority, we reurne'd an answer which shewed our disposition to conciliate, in compliance wi'h the general wishes of the nation. The next tteo was the renewal of the proposition with full prtv e , although the Noble Marquis had p> evip> jsly in vain solicited ' authority to explain, what he inu agined had been mi conceived. My Noble Friend ( Earl Moira) with that frankness which charac* teri/. es him, commenced his negociation, and he will do us the justice to admit, that be was met with equal alacriiy and liberalitv. To avoid any delay that m: ght arise, 1 brought forward a diffi- culty that forcibly struck my mind, and in conse- quence, the Noble Earl broke off the intercourse, declaring that he could ptocetd no further.—. That he afled conscientiously, I have no donh*, but the impression noon my min from all the circumstances, was that which I before stated to your Lordship?. Hereafter an opportuni y wilt be afforded of more detailed examination of the causes of that strong impression, the sta ement of which was call- id forth by what was stated !> y the Nob'e Earl ( Harrowbj ) on the other side of the House. If I am wrong, the Hosjse will be able to decide, and I lament if their decision be not such as to confirm those sentiments which I found it impossible to repress." Earl M01K. A.—" I am sincerely happy tn assure the House that 1 am completely satisfied, and I trust that if 1 said any thin? to cre tean unpleasmt impression, it is » s completely effaced from his recollection as what he sta- ed is from my own. Into what passed b- tween me and illu « ri « ous Personage, it would be indelicate for nie here to ewe', nor W'll it be more proper that in this stage 1 should dwell upon the various causes of delay beyond tto- e alluded to by my Noble Friend. I trust I have adopted that g. neroos spirit throughout these transactions, without which I should have been afraid to afl, and which is in truth only a kind of honour. If the point alluded 10 by the Noble Earl, on which my negociation terminated, had been such in my view as he represents it in his, I should have held myself deeply criminal if 1 Could have consulted the feelings of My indivi- dual, even of that Personage who fills the exalted S'atin of the first Magistrate of the State. My opposition to the wishes of my Noble Friend arose from this circumstance, thai I conceived it to be in the first instance improp r in point 01 form for me to comply with them, and in the next, th, ^ I complied, the consequences would have been singu- larly mischievous.— But in negotiations of this kind, for thn sake of removing ili- grounded suspicions, it is incumber* upon me to resign that judgment I am called upon to exer- cise on the part of my Sovereign and the Public f Hear, bejr. J— Wzt it reasonable to expeft that I should give up my notions of right and wrong; and upon that, and that alone, the negociation was broken off. The Noble Earl is con- scious that 1 came to the subj<*& unfettered in every way; not an individual was named for a seal, and no place was pointed out even for myself. I was met in a manly way, and with the same spirit I resisted ani rejected the preten- sion of the Noble Earl. The nature of that pretension will, in all probability, be afterwards d scus « ed; for the present I beg to assure him that I am perfectly satisfied w th the explanation he has afforded." Lord ( iR. ENVII. LE — My Lords, for one I shall ft* well conte, |: d to allow this matter to rest, until the public judgment, from information afforded, can be delibera- ely formed ; Wut as an individual concerned in recent event", 1 lay in my claim to assert, » nd when required, to prove, that in every part where our conrluft was implicated, it was nut on a pretension, as the Nohle Earl terms it, but on a differ- ence regarding a most important point of. the Constitution, necessary, 3S we conceive, to the good government « f the F. nipire, that our dissention was founded. My Noble Ftiend asks, whether it was to be requ'red of him thit he should sacrifice bis judgment to our wishe< i Such s de « re wnu' 4 be preposterous, but let me likewise ask your Lordships, and I request you to a- k yourselves, whether our jui'gmeet was to be yielded to the Noble Earl on points of material and fundamental importance, when the question was no lest than this, whether we could consent to become tfficiei t Members of an Administration formed on a principle whicl', in our deliberate opinion, was calculated to overthrow the acknowledged pratitice of the Constitution i I wfll not trouble the House longer now, by a more ruir. ute examina- tion of the question, but I thought these few words neces- sary, that the principle on which we proceeded might nuC be mistaken or misrepresented. Farther I will nor now pro- ceed, bat when the subjeCl is discussed in detail, the House, as has been already remarked, will discover what is fit that Parliament should take upon itself." The question of adjournment was then pat from the Woolsack, and the House, in consequence, adjournud till next day. A countryman, returning from Belfast, on Fri. day, was thus accosted by his neighbour: " IVtel, what news i" To whi - h he replied, with a 1 countenance, " Och ! there's monstrous news, and things wear a sarious look; for the people of London all rose the o her dav, bekase my Lord Moira was made Suprime Minister, and the Prince is raging at it, so he is!" An inqu - st was taken on Wednesday the 20ih ulr. before the Alderman and the borough if Malmesbury, on the body of Thomas Carter. It appeared that the deceased had been dining with the members'tef a benefit club, or friendly socie y, at the Three Cups Inn, that in the ev, ning having become intoxicated he was placed in a wheel- barrow, and by four of his companions wheeled from the Inn where he had been dinieg, to thei George Inn, and there thrown into a stable, where he was soon after discovered in a lifeless state. Medical assistance was immediately called in, but every effort to restore animation, was in vain ! Never perhaps was there an instance of more wan- ton or cruel treatment than this poor creature, who was of the most peaceable dispositions and habits, received from those who had been his com- panions, and whose duty it was to have afforded him protection, instead of exposing and depriving him of existence. The public will, no doubt, learn with astonishment, and indignation, tloat the perpetrators of this cruel aCt, that the men who have deprived an innocent individual of his life, a wife of her husband, and eight chil- dren of a parent, have escaped all punishment except that which must arise from that of their own consciences; and it is most probable, their compunctions will be but light, or it would have b. en impossible they could have aCted in the man- ner- they did, had the efforts of conscience any influence on their actions.
