( 931 MIL S HE MI 13A M HOUSE OF COMMONS, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17, Mr. SHERIDAN said, he rose, in pursuance of the notice he had o'iven on Monday. In comintr down to the House, he felt he was received with rather art inauspicious omert. How it came to he reported, yes- terday, that he was so unwell as to leave no probability of his beinsr able to attend, this day, he knfw not • but he was much surprised, when he saw his friends puttine on an affectionate stare.. as if douhtintr the re- ality of his appearance—( A Imt^ h.) — He must ac- knowled > e, however, that he was not verv well on the preceding day. nor was he so at that moment But it must be a severe indisposition indeed, after the notice be had ( riven, which could comnel his absence. He could not. be so much wanting- to his own charac- ter— he could not be so unmindful of the respect he bore the House, as to permit any common occurrence to prevent his comin< r down to redeenvthe nled" e he had publicly ijiven— Wear, W/, 1— He had to so- licit their attention to matters intimately connected with his otvn political character and opinion. Dur- ing the loner time in which he had had a seat in that House, he believed it would be allowed, that he 1- ad the jood common sense, and the good taste, not to conduct himself like an ecroti'st; but he hoped, on the present occasion, th" House would permit him to dwell upon circumstances which nearly concerned h- mself. He did not rije to throw the slightest charg- e of riminality on any person whatever: and he would, m the first instance, confine himself to those base falsehoods and calumnies, relative to himself, which had appeared in certain publications, on- of which he would not deirrade himself by holding in his hand. If those libels had appeared only in an ordinary publi- cation, he would not have noticed them ; hut, when he srfw them in a publication under the influence of those whom he always considered his best political friends, he could not look on them as the common libels of the dav. directed at random, and without premeditation. H » had seen it stated, that he had b en in the Centre of the recent transactions— that he had been the chief abettor, the notable prompter f with other words too coarse for him to use) of that secret ; nfl'j - nce which had prevented the formation of a Mi- nistry, on . sound whig and constitutional principles.— He was held up as the crreat supporter of the present Administration. The Hon. Gent, opposite must be ihl'.' ed to those who thus give them his assistance.— "•" f he would say to them, that if his councils and his ffarts could havo prevailed, not one of those Rt. Hon. Gentlemen should have been this day in office. In or- der to prove that he was mixed up with that system of secret influence and cabal, which prevented the for- mation of an efficient Ministry, and by means of which, it was alle ged, the present individuals were ap- pointed, the publication gave to a great and Illustrious Persona< re, fpelino- s which he never harboured, and which wounded him, ( Mr. S.) more than any slan- der which had been directed against himself. He would not disguise the pleasure he experienced in the lon" continued an{ uninterrupted friendship with which that Illustrious Individual had honoured him. But if at any moment he could have been base enough to offer secret counsel, while his Royal Highness had responsible advisers, whose duty it was to address l. im, and who ought not to remain an hour in office, ifter such a transaction came to their knowledge, then he was sure such unconstitutional conduct would have met the most decided reprobation of that Illus- trious Person. He did not mean to disguise, that no • nan living had more opportunity of knowinand iustlv estinvtinT the heart and mind of that individual towards himself ( Mr. S.) than he had ; and it was known only to his rtoy. l Highness, to his own heart, nnd to the Omniscient Searcher of all hearts, if he bad pr served his esteem by servility and sycophancy. But this be would state, that if any Prince ever sat on the Throne, who was more particularly willing to listen to good advice when offered to him, he was the man. He wished the whole country, and all those who were ready to encourage aspersions against him, knew his qualities as he did, and then, he was Convinc- ed, thoseinfamous and shameful scurrilitiesnenerwould have exised. At times he ( Mr. S.) had differed from him in opinion, much as he revered him; at timaS he had differed from his own party in that House, loving his party well; but seeing bim elf bound to shew, that he loved his country better—( Heai-, hear.) If he had offended, he found' satisfaction in the reflec- tion that he had the approbition of his country. Had he hesitated to assert this independence sf opinion in differing from his R. H. he ( Mr. S.) should have lost that which he never could have repaired ; and his Royal H. would have lost that, wliich, he pray- ed to God, he might repair the next hour, the zealous heart and feeling of a man devoted to his fame and hctnour, and not to his situation.—( Hear, hear).— The Right Hon. Gent, then adverted to the perso- nal ittacks which had been made on him, at the same time most fully acquitting those of his own party with having supported or countenanced them. He would next say a few words on the income which he owed to the bounty of his Royal Highness, the only in- come he at present had. A promise had been made to Lord Lake, of the o$ ce of Receiver- General of the Duchy of Cornwall— when the office became va- cant a case was laid before the Lav/ Officers of his R. Highness, and an unanimous opinion was expressed, that the situation . could not lie given to Lord Lake, who was then absent in India. He ( Mr. S.) then accepted it, only during pleasure ; and, at the time he received it, he apprised the brother of that great and excellent officer, that the moment he returned it should be resigned. When Lord Lake arrived in this country, he did resign it accordingly. His un- fortunate death, soon- after afforded the Piince an op- portunity of bestowing it on him, which he did for life. He stated this to shew that he had not been cringing and fawning for favours. He br. d spoken generally of the secret influence which had been so m « : h talked of— if it were pointed out to him, no man living would be more ready to destroy it. He was accused of being a public actor in producing and forming it. Now, what was the fact ? Within the last two months he had spoken to the Prrnce Regent but once. With his Royal Highness's permission, he had purposely abstained from even waiting on him to pay his dutiful respects. So jealous was he of being thought to have any thing to do with thr pend- [ PRICE 5D. ing negotiations, that,, after his visit- to Stafford, he bad Seen his Royal Highness but once. He was then honoured with the Prince Regent's commands to state his opinion on the situation of the affairs then transacting. He did give his opinion; and, to put to shame those who had basely maligned him, he wisli « ed it were possible that that opinion could be publish- ed. Since that time, he had not seen his Roy il High re is. With respect to the cabal and secret influ- ence, he must inform the House, that he had no con. neqtion whatever with the Marquis/ jf Hertford. He had, he believed, been but twice in his house r once about. the time of Mr. Fox's death, and once to p iy bis respectt to the Noble Marchioness. The Nob'e Vice- Chamberlain ( Lord Yarmouth) he had fre- quently met at convivial parties ; but he cotrld say no two men, in political life, could have less conversation on subjects connected with politics, than they had.—- He ( Mr. S.) was however described as a person prin- cipally employed in all those hegociations. In a few words he would state all his knowledge of the busi- ness— he did not pretend not to have had a full know- ledge of the negociation during its progress— lie was acquainted with it, but not through Carlton- House— How then ? The very day that the Marqui' Welles- ley was commanded to state his opinion, he called on him ( Mr. S.) shewed him the written terms on which he thought an Administration could be formed, and asked him what his sentiments were ; and, when the Noble Marqu'S had received full powers, he called on him, in an hour after, and shewed him the commission - he had received from the Prince Regent. From him ( Mr. S.) he received a disinterested refusal to accept any office whatever. He knew the progress of the negociation still more particularly from the habits of confidence in which he had long lived with a Noble Earl, whose Unsullied honour, and exalted virtues, were the pride of his country. He need not state tha he alluded to Earl Moira. But, in the publication of which he had spoken, he was charged with being the inflamer of his Royal Highncss's mind against tht two Noble Lords whe made such a figure irt the ne- gociation, and particularly against one of them. The whole of that paper was a gross and audacious libel. To say that it was false was to say little— every part of it was directly opposite to the truth ; for no man could labour more than he did to do aWay with exclui sions, and . to render every thing favourable in the ne- gociation. And when it was decided that there should be no exclusions, when no dislike appeared to exist, he did then, as a Privy Counsellor, address a letter to his Royal Highness, congratulating him on the man- ner in which he had aCted. He would now pass to that which was Considered the principal charge against him ; he alluded to some c/ nversation said to have passed between him and the Noble Lord ( Yarmouth) — a charge which was supposed to be confirmed by an alleged bet of five hundred guineas, with a Right Honourable Friend ( Mr. Tit- rney)—( Loud laugh- ter )— and which was said to convey a determination to oppose every effort to form an efficient Adminis- tration. He would not enter into any discussion on the stand made by Lords Grey and Grenville, which wohld be considered in another place. He had his opinion, from which persons of a more en- larged and liberal understanding might probably dif- fer. His opinion was decided. At such a moment as the present, Whert all the great points were conced- ed to those who were ambitious of serving the coun- try— when that, which influenced his heart in a para- mount degiee, he meant the subject of Ireland, might have been set at rest— when an opportunity was af- forded to prevent a rupture with America— when sound pledges were offered on the subject of econo- mical reform— when an opportunity was given to al- leviate the distresses of the country. At such a time, he did nor. think it possible* on the score of po- litical integrity, that the want Of three white sticks should be Set up as a reason for not standing forward to assist the empire.-*/ Hear, hear).— His opinions on this subject were not concealed— he had stated them to his Right Hon, Friend ( Mr. Ponsonby), from whom he learned that such a stand was likely to be made. He also communicated with a Noble Friend ( Lord KinnairdJ, as he conceived through him his opinions would be stated with great temper to Earl Grey. He likewise spoke to a young Mem- ber of that House, who had given proof of a degree of ability which would one day render him a conspi- cuous ornament of the country. In neither of these attempts, however, did he make any impression.— There were many persons who regretted the pledge made by Earl Grey in the House of Lords, but who thought, that, having been made, it was right that it should be redeemed. On that he would not say a word, Earl Grey \ vas, and ought to be, the guardian of his own honour. He ( Mr. S.) regretted that it was made, because his Lordship could not afterwards come into power without the dismissal of the House- hold, of which he disapproved. He understood tbe report was greatly exaggerated in the newspapers— but he had heard it in another quarter : and lie must say, that if a friend of his had so expressed himself, he should conceive that he could not, in justice to his principles and his honour recede fruii it. In tiie coarse of those transactions, he certainly did hear, from a Noble Friend ( Lord Yarmouth), whom lie met in the streets, that it was the determination of the Household, if certain persuni came into jjower, to re- sign. This he looked upon precisely as a dismissal. For it coeld be considered on in no other light, it, at ten minutes notice, the Household marched out of tin; western gate of Carlton- house, wliilv the new Admi- nistration inarched in at the eastern. He Knew and he disapproved of tbe condition—[ Heie Mr. S. who appeared overcome by fatigue and indisposition, was obliged to sit down for a few minutes.]— He tlieu continued— Consistently with his feeling, and with this view of the subject, he stated to the Noble Lord, that he thought the contemplated proceeding would be wrong. The determination was stili adhered to— and, in a subsequent conversation, the expression he ( MB.

The Lauristinus frigate is arrive- at Portsmouth, fiom Rio Janeiro, and it is reported in the city that she brings the intelligence of their having declared their independence, and sent' away the English Con- sul. A mail from Jamaica arrived this morning. - The packet sailed on the - ft h of May, but has brought no news of importance. The sailing of the homeward- bound fleet was deferred from the 10th to the 20th May. ' Admiral " Berkeley, who is Commander in Chief of the P. rtuguese naval forces, has made a donation of all the emolument* of'that office for the expences of the war.

The Duke of Newcastle this day r. eceived the va- • C nt Blue Ribband. . On Monday a poor labouring man, employed fn levelling the new burial ground at Stoke church, near Plymouth Dock, was buried underneath, a considerable quantity of rubbish that suddenly fell upon 1 im. Unfortunately the accident was not discov'ered until the unhappy sufferer had been suffocated. Whrn found his head was not more than six inches from the surface. Accounts of an alarming nature, we are sorry to say, have been received from the country. A letter from a Gentleman at Stockport, dated Sun- day last, says—" I was this monvrig, about one o'clock, alarmed by a great wrestling at my door by a, number of armec^ men. demanding guns. I immediately delivered the old family piece 5 af- ter which they rushed into the house, and demand ed another gun, that was formerly here belonging to a relation, and had been returned to him some time past. They said I had another gun, and would search the house. I then lighted a candle one of th * m knocked it out of my hand. Ot e of them saM, ' Cock your guns.' In a few seconds after, orders were given to point their bayonets In that defenceless state, nearly naked, I was forc- ed to fetch the- gun do> n stairs. It was conceal- ed under the bed. They waited upon the stairs, and said, be quick. I said, be civil, as there is a woman poorly in the house— They then retired with both guns, saying, the thing they had in view would he accomplished in one fortnight.. They went to several of the neighbours, and took all their arms from them They are out eveiy night at one p'clo. clc,' and great numbers are lying in ambush.] This, morning there were a few on " horseback - lain apprehensive it -\ vill prove a general disturbance" THE QUEEN'S DRAWING- ROOM. Yesterday her Majesty held a Drawing- room at St. James's Palace, the second which has been held these two years, and which was uncommon- ly crowded, owing, it is supposed, to many of the Nobility being deterred from attending the last Drawing- room, for fear of a great pressure— The company began to arrive about one o'cl- ck, and many complained of being confined to their carriages for two hours before they could reach the Palace. The Qtieen and Princesses Elizabeth and Sophia arrived at the Cuke of Cumberland's apartments a little before one o'clock, and were received by the Royal Duke ; they proceeded to put on their Court Dresses, after vviiich her Ma- „ jesty and the Princesses went from their apart- ments to the gallery leading to the Ball- room, where they were attended by the Lady in Wait- ing and Maids of Honour, Colonel Desbrowe, the Chamberlain and Vice- Chamberlain, and — attendants. The Queen entered the Grand Council Cham- ber at two o'clock, and proceeded to receive the company and presentations with her usual affa- bility composure, and attention. The Prince Re- gent arrived in the Court- yard of St. James's Palace in his state carriage, drawn by six beauti- ful bays, preceded by three other carriages, in which were his attendants. The Lord in Waiting rode in the carriage with the Prince. The Band in the Palace- yard stinck up " God save the King!" on the entrance of his Roval H ghness. Earls Cholmondeley and Macclesfield," and Lord Jocelyn, received tbe Prince at the bottom of the grand staircase, and conduced him to the Draw- ing- Roqnij where his Royal Highness remained about naif aft hour. About six o'clock, the Queen, Princesses Au- gusta and Sophia, and the Duke of Sussex, left the Ditke of Cumberland's apartments for Carl- ton House, to dinner, where they were received by the Prince Regent, who conduced them to the dinner apartments, where they were joined by the other Roval Dukes, the Duchess of York, and Princess Charlotte. In the evening there was a selefi party to meet the Queen. The following were among the presentations to her Majesty, viz.:— Mrs. Agar, on her marriage, by tbe Marchioness, of Hertford- ( Countess of Meath, by the Countess of Loudon and Moira. — Her Ladyship wore a handsome diess of peach- blossom satin, with rich draperies.

MAILS SINCE OUR LA8T. 2 Br DONAGHABE* Bv DUBLIN DUE 0 BELFAST, IFednettday, June 24, 1812. • PACKET BY EXPRESS. The London Prints of Saturday the 20: h, were last night transmitted to this Office by express from Donaghadee. The following is an abstract of their contents: * London, Saturday, June 20. A Lisbon Mail and dispatches arrived phis morning. The dispatches from Lord Welling- ton are of the 3d. His Lordship is moving to- wards the Tormes in force. Tbe Guerillas are in possession of Cuenca. General Hill has returned to Almendralejo. There is a report of General Lacy having en. tered Tarragona : we shall be happy to find it confirmed. A material augmentation of our force will be derived from a measure, which is to be put into immediate execution. Every Biitish regiment is to receive an addition of ten Spaniards to each company. - . By accounts received this day from Jamaica of the 3d of May, it appeats that the most . recenj or. ws from Haytt was, that the contending Chiefs there, were oh the plains of Leogane, and that a general battle was shortly to be expefled. It also appears that Petion had destroyed the squadron of Christophe, and that no kind of conciliation was likely to take place between them. A Biitish squadron, consisting of the Barba- does, Thetis, and two ships of war, wete stationed off Port- au- Prince to protefl British merchant- men, and render ? ny other assistance that circum- stances might demand. Omnium was this morning, at one o'clock, d" ne at 3 per cent, premium. The first payment was made yesterday, and the great quantity, paid up in full, was never equalled in any former Loan. After the levee yesterday, the Prince Regent received in his closet, a Deputation from the Ge- neral Society of Friends commonly called Quak- ers, consisting of ten Members, introduced to his Royal Highness, attended by the Great Officers of State, the Royal Dukes, and the Secretary of Stale for the Home Department. William Allen one of the Deputation, read a petition from the Society, praying his Royal Highness for peace ; to which the Prince Regent was pleased to return a most gracious answer. On the motion of Lord Ellenborough, strangers were obliged to withdraw from the House of Lords. In consequence of thus inforcing this Standing Order, the public are uninformed re- spefling Lord Moira's explanation that had been promised. Before the House was cleared of strangers, Lord ' Moira distinfl'y stated, that it would appear that his Royal Highness ailed whol-' ly on public principles, and that his Noble Friends, Lords Grey and Grenville, had been governed only by the same views. MR. SilElilDAN'S EXPLANATION. HOUSE OF COMMONS, FRIDAY, JUNE 19. Mr. H FITZGERALD rose to infqrm the House that he had been empowere4 by a Noble Earl ( Yarmouth) to ex- press his sincere regret that he was precluded by a severe indisposition, which confined him to kis bed, from attend- ing his duty in his piace that day. He ( Lord Yarmouth) could have wished to have been present, from the nature of the discussion to answer any question., which might have been put to him, and he did express a hope that the questi- on might be deferred, but the Right Hon. Gentleman seem- ed anxious to persevere, be deemed it due to his own honour, and due to the House, to express the regret he felt at being absent, an absence which nothing but inevitable necessity could hive caused. Mr. SHERIDAN " I can vouch, Sir, for the truth of all which the Hon. Gentleman has stated; I called upon the Noble I. ord in. my way down to the House, and I saw, with regret, that it was impost. Me he could be present. 1 did also jute to him, that as I considered that part of the 4Ue » tion which related to our conversation, as a mere mar- ginal thing, nothing but an episode, in re » pei5t to what I was most anxious to lay before the House, 1 would abstain from it altogether— and having said thus much, 1 shall pro- ceed to explain motive:; lot die taction which 1 intend to link* V Sir, passing by with a » ingle word, this ft>&. that what ever . misapprehension may have arisen in the public mind upon my cnnd* ift, there- has been none between me and the Noble Lord, 1 shall ha^ en to the asser ion » f my Right Hon. Friend, that 1 utterly disbelieved any such es gnarion as that of the Household was in contemplation ; and that in addition, as a clenclier, I offered to make a- bet with him. [ Here Mr. Tierney said no, it Was not with him.} Well then, that I of-, fered to m ike a bet with somebody, or- with any body- fa laugh)— of five hundred guine as upon tbe subject. Now, Sir, there is something unlikely upon the face of this story, jf this offer of mine to bet with him, with every body, or with any body, I, whe never bet with any body, nor ever play for a single guinea. I wish he had taid that I offered to stake the money, and then I am sore nobody would have believed it—( Ltud laughter frtm all sidet.) However, I'll not cavil about it— I'll give him this ^ 500 bet, that is I'll not give him the money, but I'll give him the bet—( laugh- ter ) At the same time, if every loo « e Word that i4 uttered at the moment— as for example— a friend says to me, the Household are going to resigh— I reply, I'll bet ybu five hun- dred guineas they do not— if every casual expression like this is to be brought down to the House, and made a subject of grave accusation, ( Hear, heat), I protest I shall take care how I answer ( o a friend who meets me in-. St. James's- street, and • ays. How ' do you do ?—( laugh '— I'll take thr.- e minutes to consider of my reply; and even then, shall be shy of an- swering, unless a witness is by who can minute down my words, exactly as they fall from my 1 ps—( laughter). However, I will concede to him the fail, that I did say, I'll bet you 500 pounds the Household will not resign— five shillings would have been more likely—/!, tai/ ghj— but why did I say it? My ft^ t Hon. Friend said to me, 1 hear the Household are going to resign; I replied, 1 did not believe it. And why dia I not believe it, I had never heard a syllable about the intention of- ttoe Household, till the No- ble Lord himself told it to me—- Sod when my Right Hon. Friend spoke to me. I knew that resignation was contingent upon a circumstance which, at the moment ot the bet, was more remote from taking place'than ever. Is that an intel- ligible answer} But now having answered him, let me ask a question in my turn, of tbe Right Hon. Gentleman : Did I not express my surprise to him, that any thing could have arisen to interrupt the Negociations that, were then taking place ?— And the answer of my Right Hon. Friend was, that the Noble Lords required that Earl Moira should obtain from the Prince Regent full power to consult with then; individually in the formation of a new Administra- tion. Earl Moira wrote to the Noble Lords a letter, dated June S, in which he offered a renewal of the Negociations, and on the'evening of that day, I had the honour of meet- ing my Right Hon Friend ( Mr. Ponsonby) at the Duke of Bedford's. He said to me, we hear, Sherid n, that you are of opinion the Negociation can be rihewed between Farl ij Moira and Lords Grey and Granville:— We do not think so. I answered, perhaps the d fference of opinion arises ( t Earl Moira's letter being inaccurately worded ; but that there was oue thing which I knew, and wiiich they could not dispute with me, and that was the sincere intention o£ Lord Moira to renew the Negociations For next day but one alter that, Lord Moira wrore a minute in the presence of the Duke of Bedford, which he sent to Lords Grey and Grenville, and in the evening when I met the Duke of Bed- lord, he told me, I was right in my assertion, as to the . sin- cere intention of Lord Moita to renew the Negociations.— Oil the 5t! i I certainly did communicate to Lord Moira what it was that Lords Grey and Grenville expetfted," which the Noble Earl thought conclusive, and broke off r he - business. " I sincerely regretted this termination of the affair, and immediately sent an express into the codntry to my Hon. Friend on my right ( Mr. Whitbread). When he came to towa, I communicated upon the subjeift with my Lord Erjkine, stating, that I did not think the answer of the Noble Lords con- lusive, as to the breaking off the negecia- tiou altogether. We met at Lord Erskine'si Lord Erskine put the question to my Hon Friend if he thought the Ne- j| gociation was conclusively broken off by the answer of the Noble Lord.? Hi replied he did not— and cl. ut itVaiit the Noble Earl wrote iq { he Prince Regeat to obtain the power required by the Nibble Lords. I must add, that. I found,, with tke deepest regret, next day, h « t the neg'ociation had been once more broken off upon that sine qua non, the" dis- missal of the H use hold, 1 did nut conceive it possible,. wheu they did meet, but that the negociation would jiave been brought to a successful issue, and the first .1 heard of so, from finding in all the measures and condufl of that No ij hie Lord, and from what he had uniformly observed in him- that he was impressed with a conviction of doing right— ( A lavgh)— He was sorry rs> see wh t he had said as to this Nobis Lord received with a sneer.

Canning, and he tpld me that Lord Liverpool was appoint- ed Prime Minister. Mow, Sir, I wi. h to offer a few words upon what I said the otjier night, that if my advice had been followed, not one « f the Right . Hun. . and Hon Gentlemen opposite, would be sitting in their placet I hope they did not consider that as springing from any personal animosity towards them: I protest to God, it was no such thing, for 1 have a personal respwS aod esteem for them all— neither was ( influenced, by the vote of this House, hy which they had, as it were, biieii cashiered. My objection to them was, that they were avowedly arrayed and embodied against a principle of c nctssion to the Cathelics of Ireland, which, I chink, and must always think, essential to the safety of this Empire.—( Hear, hear ) I will never give my vote to any . j Administration that opposes the question of Cathoiic Eman- cipation ; I will not consent to receive a furlough upon that particular question, even though a Ministry were carrying every other that I wished. I could wish to see negocia- tion euternd- upon with fairness and sincerity towards the Catholics, with concessions on both sides, so as to make it popular in this country, and that no alarm may be created. 1 am not one of those who would grant absolute uncondi- tional concessions to the Catholics ; let proper guards and securities be provided, > nd let negociatiods be commenced with them upon a basis of sincerity; but my doubt is, that this negociation cannot be carried on by those, who in their hearts are hostile to the cause. Proposals from such will never be adequately received by the Catholics; but if they proceed from persons, wlioste intentions they knew to be fair and open, without any trick or fraud, then we should see them met with corresponding fayness and integrity. " Mr. Sheridan assured theRight Hon. Gentlemen oppo- site, that in us'ng the expression alluded to, he had meant no disrespect wi incivility to them. He addressed himself more particularly to the Noble Lord ( Castiereagh), and trusted that he would agree with him, that the sooner the claims of thef Irish Catholirss could now be granted the better. Wfceo it was seen that Ministers were giving up other things t> » which they were as much pledged, as they had ever been to resistance to the Catholic claims— that they had conceded th, i point relative to the Barracks— that they had agreed to a suspension- of tilt ' Orders in Council— when they were seen to have yielded in these respe& s, he hoped they would not make the CatHoIic question the qnly excep- tion, but would give it up also. It the Noble Lord and his Colleagues were content to do all the Paltry and minute business of office, and to adopt all the suggestions of those who were generally described - as their opponents, he con- fessed that he, for one, could not figure a more complete coalition. It was impossible lhat his Right Honourable Friends on the tide of tke House on which he sat could ob- ject to such a mode of. proceeding; and the coUHtry must surely, at length confess, that they had goc a most broad- bottomed /* dministraVk> n. When Gentlemen talked of a strong and vigoreus Administrat on, he conceived th t they must mean an A- ministration composed of hien who drew together, and concurred in great leading principles; but when an Administration was composed of persons who en- tertained co. itradi& ory opinions, however able the individu- als might be, he could not look for strength or public con- fidence in such an Administration. He did not like- coali- tions between men of confining opinions. Looking to a man whom he loved more than he had ever loved or ever could love any other political character— one of the greatest and best men whom his . country thad ever seen, and whose loss the country had now so much cause to deplere— he meant Mr. Fox; he could not but regret more than any other a& of that Hon. Gentleman's life, his coalition wich Lord North, believing, as he did, that the mind of the country had never recovered from that shock,. as iar as lua Right Hon. Friend was concerned. try being against the conduit of those w ith whom the ne- gociution bad been going on ? He thought tbe House might have been satisfied with one vote on sitch a. - ubjrJt. Even one interference in a question of that' kind was a strong mea- sure. There was but a thin partition between negativing and nominating in such cases as those, and he thought that the second- attempt had, too, the appearance of th* wiiiii to usurp the power of nominating to the Prince Regetit the individual persons who should be his Ministers.— He felt regret that the negociation for the format ofi of an efficient Administration, comprehending the two Noble Lords allpded to, had failed ; but when it had so failed, he did wish that an attempt had been made to form an Ad- ministration without them, and still without resorting to the former men. This, he thought, might haVe been done uy bringing forward something fresh - and new ; and he' cob Id not but think that it was a libel on the public ; that it ivas lowering the country ; to hold " chat there was nothing but , those two parties from which an Administration could be j formed. He regretted that no negociation of this kipd could | be carried on without the two parties tbitvking that they I were Bet against each other; and that the communications which passed on the « ubje& must all be submitted to the • public. Such publications were to the disadvantage of tins 1 country, and to the encouragement of the enemy. He | wished an embargo could be laid upon thepi, so that they j might not get alsnad, and that it might not appear, at » • period when we ought. to be yn. ited against tke^ euemy, that we were so employed He concluded by moving an humble Address to the Prince Regent, praying that he would be pleas'. d to order th'at there be laid before the House, such official documents as had been laid before'his Royal High- ness relative to the formation of a new Administration in consequence of the Address of the House, as far as his Roy- al Highness was £ f. opinion they might with propriety, be laid before Parliament. " ' . A long conversation then ensued of no gfeat interest, after which the motion was negatived. The Hoase afterwards resolved, itself into a Committee on the Irish Stamp Afls, when Mr. POLE stated, that great, inconvenience had arisen jn consequence of the regulations fespe& ing Stamps being contained in several A< 9s of Par- liament. He proposed to tonsolidate- all thi- se various A< 51 a of Parliament into one general A&; and to direiS thTTom- missioner, of Stamps to print in distitift pirts the regula- tions act. " hing to the different heads of STSPIPT » jTJif Qfly, material alterations he proposed to make related tafard^ and dice, which had hitliefWJkeen under the F. icise, and - he uow proposed to bring them tinder the.

SIR, Wt the undersigned Gentlemen an<} Freeholders of the County of Down, assembled at the Lent As- sizes, 1812, take the liberty of expressing our sincere concern at hearing, by your communication of the 5th inst. that any circumstances had occurred which might induce you to vacate your seat in the Imperial Parliament » tthis period. We request you will accept our - assurances of the Strongest personal regard and attachment, and that you will permit as to express our earnest desire that you will not subject the county, at this time, to the iroubL and inconvenience of an election. We confidently hope* therefore, that we may con- tinue to consider you as one of our Representatives, during the existence of the present Parliament; atid % eg leave to assure you that by complying with this request, you will strengthen those feelings of esteem With which we are already impressed.''

The F. xc'oqtterJBills which were issued to the merchants and others last year, for relief under the pressing embarrassments of trade, were to ^ ve been paid in . Tnly and October next. We are now informed, that an extension of the time has been de. ermined on, for the further conveni- ence of the parties, until the months of February, May, and August, 1813. Parliament, it is understood, will be prorogued as soon as the most essential public business is transacted. A dissolution, it is reported, will take place in the autumn. It appears, frnm the official account presented to the House of Commons, that the ne; produce of duties arising from stamps, in England, on Newsoapers and Almanacks, together with the produce of duties on Advertisements, for the vear ending January the 5th last, was ^ 415,000. The miibber cf newspapers printed in London is about 5K and in the rest of Englahd about 1H. Almaraz, the scene of the recent vi& ory of Sir F . Hill, is on the eastern frontier of the province of Estiamadurai and in dispersing the enemy from thence, we may be said to have made a deep incision into his power over the kingdom of Spain. The army of Portugal, as it ? s falsely called, had no other good line of communication with that before Cadiz, than over the bridge of Almaraz ; and even this route was circuitous enough; but now that the bridge is destroyed, th < re is no mili- tary road from Salamanca to Seville nearer than by Toledo. A quantity of new potatoes were brought to eur market on Monday ; and the supply of meal we are happy to observe, was most abundant, and the price fell from $ s. to 4s. per cwt. M. Galarzin, a Russian prince, became a Roman Catholic clergyman about ten year* ago, and fixed hi: residence on the Allegany mountain, tlst highest io North America. Though his flock was then limited to six Roman Catholic families, it is now the largest congregation, next to that of Philadelphia, in North America. GREENLAND MISSIONS.— In consequence of the war, the usual intercourse between Denmark and her colonies in Greenland, has been much inter- cepted. The Moravians or United Brethren have three Missionary settlements, containing eighteen Missionaries, who, as well as the colonists, have been in great distress for want of provisions for two or three years past. The last letters from the Missionaries, dated August 8, 1811, mention, that in some of the colonies they have been re- duced to the necessity ot supporting life by eating small herrings, muscles, and even sea- grass Our Government, in order to relieve them, has just now permitted a Danish vessel to carry out previsions. The vessel ( the Freyden) has arriv- ed at Leith, and is now shipping provisions and other necessaries for the Missionaries. Married. Yesterday, by the Rev.

Sad the scene, To which thofce simple lines shall flow, For ah ! these tearful eyes have seen, My friends, my dearest friends, laid low. Let fancy nil her charms display, To deck the youthful bridal bed, More sad the theme that courts my lay, The lowly dwelling of the dead. Thou, Guadiana, well can'st tell, Where many a gallant heart is laid, The spot, where many a soldier fell, And many an honest tear was paid; And, Guadiana, many a breeze. To thee far distant o'er the deep. Has Wafted many a sigh for these, Who by thy rapid current sleep. But redder yet the landscape glow", And louder thunders - tribe my ear, And bloodier yet thy torrent flows, While fresher scenes of wee appear. For by the towers that proudly sweep, Close by thy dark and rapid stream, Shall many a waking mother weep, And many a lovely sister dream. Yet stop the votive tear a while, And ah ! let this at least be said, Thev lived in honour's brightest smile, And died in honour's hallowed bed. Then cease to weep, for while we give, To heroes now no more, a sigh. We still must burn like them to live, And honoured thus, like them to die. T. H. taw tamtent. HOUSE OF LORDS— MONDAY, JUNE 18. onnras i> r couvetr,. The Marquis of LANSDOWNE, on seeing a Noble Earl ( Bathurst) in his place, rose for the purpose of putting a few questions to him, on a subject the most importantly connected with the commercial interests of the country. It was of perfect notoriety, from what passed in another place, that a considerable change was meditated in the commercial policy of the country ; and, un- der this impression, he addressed the Noble Earl, with a view of removing doubts which still ex- isted among many of their Lordships, and on the part of the great body of those persons whose in- terests were so deeply at stake. It was obvious » n those views, that whatever change was intend- ed, it should be distinctly and immediatelv ex- plained. In putting the questions he was abont to do, he should reserve to himself the power and the mode, shou'd the answer make it necessary, ef his coming forward, on any future occasion, in consequence of it. In the first place, he beg- ged leave to inquire, whether the intended change in the commercial policy of the country extended to that which he deemed the most material and ef- fectual, particularly with respect to our relations with America, namely, a total and immediate re- peal of the Orders in Council ? • If it fell short of this, whether it were meant that a suspension or a conditional rescinding of the Orders should take r lace j if only a suspension, for what time ? and if a conditional revocation, upon what con- ditions ? Upon the clearness and publicity of these explanations would depend the line of con- duct which the great body of the Merchants and Manufacturers of the country would pursue, whose'vita! interests were so deeply implicated. Earl BATKURST said, he concluded, that in consequen. e of what passed in another place, that some questions on the subject would be put to his Majesty's Ministers in that House j and in answer to what had fallen from the Noble Marquis, he had to state, that on the 21st of May, a copy of : an instrument, purporting to be a decree of the ' French Government, had been communicated to fits Majesty's Government, The document was dated the 21st of April, 1811; but it had not, be- fore the time mentioned, been delivered to the American Government, though dated upwards of a year before. This was acknowledged bv the American Government itself, and even by the French Minister in America, who stated he had never before seen it. This went to declare the repeal of the Berlin and Milan Decrees so far as related to the United States: and taking all the circumstances into consideration, it appeared to his Maje- ty's Ministers a matter of doubt, whe- ther or not the Decrees in question could be con- sidered thereby as revoked } but it appeared to be expedient to declare, that the Order of January, 1807, and the Order of 1809, should be revoked at a given period, so that the American Govern- ment should abrogate their restrictive measures on the ships and commerce of Great Britain; and in the case of a certain arrangement taking place with the French and American Governments, that they should be revoked altogether. There was another point, conditionally required, that Ame. rica should, within a given period, allow British ships of war to enter her harbours in the same manner as the other Belligerent vessels were ad- mitted. This was all he felt it necessary to state in the present instance; but would add, that what- ever the determination of his Majesty's Govern- ment should be, it would be formally promulgated in a public instrument. Hit Majesty's Ministers would be responsible for their conduft on the oc- casion ; and any Noble Lord might afterwards move for the production of this document, with a view to ulterior discussion. Eail GREY did not, from the peculiar and important interest of the occasion, think the Noble Earl sufficiently explicit. By what fell from him, he understood that the revocation of these Orders was not to take place immediately, but at some date to be fixed, calculating the time necessary for communication with America. Earl BATHURST said, that the Aft was to be in foice until its notification in America; but this delay could not produce any inconvenience to the mercantile interest here. It was not our Or- ders iM prevented their trade to America, it vu the American Aft which would not admit it into the harbours of America ; and as the repeal of the Orders took place the moment the notifi ation was made there, no injury could happen by the delay, which equally affefted the cargo and the tran it of the repeal. The revocation of the Or ders depended on the American revocation of hos- tile afts j and also on the admission of our ships of war into her ports; He should merely repeat what he had said of the duration of the Orders. They were to continue in opera'ion until advicp of them could reach America; and American ships violating the blockade were liable to be taken as usual, but no proceedings were to be entered into against them, until the American revocation was known here. Lord GR£ Y observed, probably in a1 month or six weeks; but wished to know particularly, whether it was meant to aft upon the order in the interval? He knew it was meant, that the abro- gations should be contemporaneous. The next point was, that it depended upon certain condi- tion^, which if not complied with, it would lead to the revival of the orders. It should be explain- ed what these conditions were. Another point was, that it would also depend on the conduft of the French Government, with respeft to the revo- cation of the Berlin and Milan Decrees. This point also should be explained. He lamented that such a result should be left to the conduft of the French Government. The course therein adopt- ed by Ministers was contrary to the true honour and interests of the country. He thought Go- vernment should at once, upon a view of all the circumstances, decide, if in their minds for the in- terests of the country, to continue them fully and openly ; if in the negative, at once to repeal them. Earl BATHURST, in reply, observed, there was nothing in the Orders in Council which pre- vented a British vessel from going out to Ame. rica ; the difficulty was how she would be receiv. ed there. The Noble Earl seemed mistaken as to the point. The revocation of the Orders would depend wholly upon the conduft of the United States in resptft to the points he had stated. The conduft of the French Government with respeft to the subjeft may evidently be such as would render it incumbent on his Majesty's Government to declare the revival of the measures in question. With respeft to the Noble Earl's question, as to the operation of the © rders in the interval of the necessary communication with the United States, he said, it was understood they should be con- sidered in operation to the extent only that such vessels brought in as had violated the blockade should not be proceeded on to final adjudication, until the determination of the American Govern- ment should be fully known. Earl STANHOPE urged the necessity of the determination of Government, with reference to the distressed state of the manufafturers, should be known as distinftly and speedily as possible ; and he deprecated any arrangement which left it within the power of the Frer ch Government ef- fectually to revive those injurious measures. Earl GREY, in the course of an explanation of some length, deprecated, as a feeble and injurious policy, the making the revocation conditional, on- ly to gain a petty advantage, in having it in our power subsequently to condcmn such ships as may be brought im He also referred to the state of the power as vested by Aft of Congress in the American Ptesident, as tending "> preclude him from meeting with the desired effeft a proposition clogged with such conditions from the British Government. The Earl of LAUDERDALE discussed the whole policy of the Orders; and concluded a speech of some length by stating it as his firm opinion, that the conduft of Government had been from the beginning weak, ignorant, and obscure. The Earl of LIVERPOOL was so convinced that the proper time for the discussion was, when the instrument alluded to wav made public, which would be in a few days, that he should only detain the House for a moment. As to the delay of the operation of the repeal, there were reasons which he thought clearly sufficient, for making its com- mencement hers and in America as nearly con- temporaneous as possible. The distance of Ame- rica made it difficult to appoint a particular day for the receipt of the communication ; it would be otherwise if that distance were less. If, for in- stance, it was not more than that of France, a day might be distinctly fixed, from which the Orders were to cease ; but they were to cease before we had received any announcement from America, that the Non- Intercourse Aft had been repealed in consequence. This be said to amend the mis- conception of the Noble Lord ( Lauderdale). His other questions had reference to other discussions of other times, and therefore he ( Lord Liverpool) must be excused answering them. The Noble Lard ( Lauderdale) happened to have utterly mis- conceived the spirit of the declaration issued on the French repeal of the Berlin and Milan De- crees : it implied no abandonment of the Orders in general, but merely on terms which were known and stated. Another misconception had been, that our repeal depended on the will of the Frenck Government. There was no doubt that farther and future arrangements between France and America might occasion the revival of the Orders, but as this must be with the consent of both powers, the mode in which the revival would ope- rate must be determined with reference to each, by their mutual share in such arrangements. The present moment was, however, the least fit for going into the subjeft, and he should say no more until the authentic instrument, which pledged Go. vernment, was before the House. The Earl of ROSSLYN thought that the de- lay of even a month must be extremely prejudi- cial. The great shipment for America was the FAIL shipment, which took place in July; which would be impeded most injuriously by the doubt- ful state of the repeal. As to the retention of the American shipping, what was it in comparison to the immense quantity that would be in American ports, ready to be seized on the first appearance of any similar attempt on our part ? Earl FITZWILLIAM observed, that the ma- nufacturers had stated in evidence, that they would ship goods to America immediately on the repeal of the Orders in Coune. il, from the confidence they had, that the repeal of the Non- Importation Act would immediately follow. But if the revo- c ation was to be acccmpanicd with these condi- tions, he was convinced that not a bale of goods would be shipped ; and that the distresses of the manufacturers would not be removed for some time. Lord HOLLAND strongly disapproved of the petty, undignified manner in which this revoca- rion took place; and repeated what had been said by a Noble Friend near him, that since the Mini- sters took their measures, they ought to execute them in their manner. These conditions had no other use than to shew, that the thing was done with reluctance. This ungracious mode of pro- ceeding might make it doubtful with the Presi- dt -: t of the United States, whether it was intended really to do the thing at all, and occasion a sus- picion that our Government wished only to get credit for the attempt, without the odium of a failure, and that therefore they had made the attempt in a way not likely to succeed. What would be the situation of our manufacturers in this state of doubt ? The Earl of LAUDERDALE said, that if the Orders were revoked without these conditions, it was imperative on the President to repeal the Non- importation Aft ; but if the revocation was to be attended with such conditions, the President might think it questionable whether he had the power. He again adverted to the different char- acters which these measures had assumed ; being first retaliation upon an enemy— then measures of commercial monopoly— and now, in case the con- ditions were not complied with, they were to be measures of retaliation upon America, for the adoption of internal regulations, with which we had no right to interfere. The Earl of LIVERPOOL stated, that the notification of the French Government, as to the repeal of the Berlin and Milan Decrees, as far as respeded America, had beeo, that they were so far to be repealed at a distant day ; yet the Pre- sident had afted upon this repeal. The Marquis of LANSDOWNE asked, whe. thef the admission of British merchant ships with goods, into the ports of the United States, as well as that of ships of war, was a condition to be insisted on ? The Earl of LIVERPOOL answered that it was: that it was required of America ro repeal all the regulations consequent on the Orders in Council. CURATES BILL. The Earl of HARROWBY, in rising to move for the recommittal of this B; ll, explained the nature and objects of the measure to their Lord-- ships at considerable length. In pr facing this exposition, he noticed his coming forward with respect to the Bill, as it were, as an executor of' the intentions of the late exce lent and ever to be lamented Premier, on whose public and private virtues, patriotism and services to his country, the Noble Earl pronounced an appropriate eulo- gium. He entered into various details to shew the importance and the necessity of the measure, and to shew the House, that the far greater part of the clerical duty of the Established Church was performed by that very meritorious class of the reverend profession, the curates. He stat- ed, that it appeared from the returns upon the table, that out of 10,261 places, there were non- resident incumbents 2671. by exemption, 2114 by leave, and 1055 non- residents from other caus- es. This the Noble Earl stated among a variety of other points, to shew how great a proportion [. of the clerical duty was performed by the curates- He then entered into a statement of the various legislative provisions which were made for ameli. orating their condition, from the time of Edward II. to the latest periods of his Majesty's reign ; and of the powers which were ves ed in the Bishops from time to time, with respeCt to this valuable description of the Clergy.— He likewise adverted to the various and unequal state of their stipends, chiefly arising from the very unequal amounts or value of livings in different parts of the country : — A detailed statement nf the provisions of the Bill, he would not then trouble their Lordships with ; these they would perceive on perusing it; and could fully discuss in the Committee. He observed, that the - Church was itself rich enough to answer the expences requisite for the principal objects of the Bill. A statement of the great in- equalities of the remuneration of its Ministers could not be considered without horror.—( Hear, hear, from Earl Stanhope.) After some further observations, his Lordship proceeded to state some of the leading provisions of the Bill. It was proposed, that no Gurate should officiate without being duly licenced by the Bishop, those who were not being left in too great a state of dependance upon the incumbent, and could not well complain of their situation. The minum of salary, it was proposed, should be eighty pounds. Where the parishes contained 500 souls, it was to be jfflOO per annum ;— where 1000 souls, jf! 50; where the amount of the liv- ings did not come up to those sums, the curate was to have the whole. The Noble Earl stated some further provisions of the Bill, and conclud- ed by moving that it be committed for Monday. The Archbishop of CANTERBURY observed that when the Bill came next day into a Commit- tee, several amendments would be necessary. A further discussion of the subjeft would set these points right with respeft to the Bishops, a suppos. ed want of aftivity on whose parts seemed to be one of the main motives of the Bill. The Bishop of LONDON made a variety of observations on the subject, and though he did not seem adverse to the principle of the measure, yet was of opinion its details would lead to end- less complaints. The Bill, he thought, was great- ly encumbered with unnecessary apparatus. The Earl of LIVERPOOL was favourable to the principle of the Bill, and thought it should go to detailed discussion in a Committee. The permission of non- residence was perhaps, in some degree, necessary, in the present state of the Church ; still it should be remembered the prac- tice was founded upon no principle of the Chris- tian religion—( Hear, hear)— and he noticed the frequency of such matters being regulated by legislative provision. Earl STANHOPE shortly delivered his senti- ments, which were in favour of the measure. Some further conversation took place, in which the Bishop of Exeter, the Lord Chancellor, and some other Peers, participated ; after which the Noble Earl's motion, as above, was agreed to, and their Lordihips adjourned.

Now I will inform ywu," said he, " how I manage my Physicians. I have four, to whom the care of my health is committed t a certain weekly salary is allowed them; but the moment that I am ill, the salary stops, till I am well again* I need not inform you my illnesses ace usually short." Friday se'nnight, a young woman in Paisley, unwittingly folded up a bed in which a very fine boy of four and a half years old was asleep._ The child was not missed for a considerable time, and when the bed was taken down by his grand- mother, she had the mnutterable angui » h of find- ing him lifeless. In July last, the skeleton of a man, ten feet three inches high, was dug up in the village Of Mazara, in Sicily. Human skeletons, of gigantic size, have been heretofore found in the same spot. Strawberries have been exposed to sale at lOx. 6d. per pint ( two English quarts), and po- tatoes at Si. in the Edinburgh market. Mr. Voss, the person for whose apprehension the Committee of Lloyd's offered a re war 1 of aglOO, has writ'en a letter from America to thosa gentlemen, proposing to return and submit him- self to trial, provided they will first agree to pay his expences to and from America— in case he should be condemned to death, er transported, to allow his wife and family a large annuity— and lastly, should he be acquitted, to have an annuity settled on himself. From the whole tenor of the letter, it is observed, that this unfortunate man, at the time of writing, was labouring under die misfortune of insanity. The recruiting service for the army is hereafter to be carried on upon an entirely new system. Hi- therto every recruiting party has been command- ed by a Regimental Officer, and frequently many parties have been employed on this service from the same regiment. In future, every recruiting district is to be formed into subdivisions, each subdivision to be commanded by a superintend- ing experienced Officer, and from three to four, it is said, will be found sufficient. There are many other legulations forming, which are con. sidered highly beneficial to this most important branch of the service.
