Lord SIDMOUTH presented to the House the fol « lowing , MESSAGE FROM THE PRISCE REGENT. „ GEOHOF. P. R. " His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, in the name and on the behalf of his M ijcsty, has gitren or- ders that there be laid before the House of Lords co| Mes of the information which has been received re- lative to certain violent and dangerous proceedings, which', in defiance of the laws, have taken place and still continue to be carried on in several counties of England. " His Royal Highness confidently relies on the wisdom of Parliament fxir the adoption of such mea- sures as. msy be best calculated to secure the lives and property of his Majesty's subjects in the disturbed dis- tricts,, and fur the restoration of order and tranquility." Lbrd SlDMotmt moved, that the Message be taken into consideration on Monday next, when the infor- mation would be laid on the table, and that their Lord- ships he summoned for that day. Adjourned to Monday. HOUSE OF COMMONS— SATURDAY, JUNE 27. Lord CASTr. KUE.' Gii, at the bar, presented a mes- sage from the Prince Regent, ( for which see the Lord's Report) which was read by the Speaker. Lord CASTLKREAGH moved that it be taken into considentian on Monday. Mr. BROUGHAM expressed his astonishment tint, f necessary, these steps had not been t; iken at a much earlier period ; and, if it were intended to suspend any of the constitutional laws, which even in the worst of times, ought to be m. tintair. cd, that such a motion had not been introduced before the order for calling qver the House had been discharged. Lord CASTLEREAQH, in a low tone of voice, re- plied, that the present was not a fit occasion for dis- cussing the subject, and that the information alluded to in the message, would belaid before the House on Monday. To two questions from Mr. GILKS and Mr. HOR- NER, his Lordship answered, that on Monday he should move ah address, in consequence of his Royal Highness's Message, and that subs- quently ( Wednes- day, we believe,) he would move, that a. Secret Com- mittee be appointed to enquire into the facts. Adjourned to Monday. LONDON, Monday, June 29. Yesterday being the last Sunday in the month, the following bulletin was shewn at St. James's Palace : " Windsor Castle, June 27. " Since the last report his Majesty has had an in- crease of his disorder which has again subsided." His Majesty, we are concerned to state, was more severely afflicted in the beginning of the last week, than he has been for many months past; he refused sustenance for four- and- twenty hours, during which time his fever was alarmingly high. We are informed that the Commissioner?, who were appointed by the Lord Lieutenant about two years ago, to distribute the sum of two hundred thousand pounds, advanced by the Bank of Ireland for the relief of manufacturers and traders who were suffering temporary distress by the then stagnation of trade and depression of credit, have been enabled to complete their commission with such perfect suc- cess, that the whole of the sums distributed have been replaced without a shilling expence to the pub lie ; and it is gratifying to understand, that in conse- quence of this well- timed measure, employment was afforded to upwards of 12,500 persons, most of whom, but for this special interposition, must have been des- titute of the means of subsistence. We have extreme pleasure in laying before the public this summary view of the successful result of that well- timed operation, because from the very nature of the measure some loss and deficiency must have been risked to render it ef- fectual, Friday se'ennight, a detachment of about 100 sol- diers from several militia regiments, who had not volunteered to " go to Ireland with their respective regiments, were ordered to proceed to Sheerness, to take a part of the garrison duty. On arriving at the ferry, some of them refused to cross the Swale, al- ledging that they were exempted by act of Parliament from doing duty in any of the British Islands, and as Sljeerness was in an island, there was no authority for their being sent there. The whole of the party soon became of the same opinion, and the officers used every means in their power to bring the men to a sense of their duty in vain. Tliey persisted in their deter- mination not to go into the island, and they were marched back to Chatham. When they arrived in the barracks, ten of the most forward and vialcnt of the men were put in confinement, where they now re- main, and are to be tried by a Court Martial ) the rest afterwards expressed their sorrow for their im- proper conduct, and went voluntarily to the place of destination. The first clause of the Mutiny Act for 1812, states, that the number of forces should consist of two hundred and forty five thousand nine hundred and ninety- six officers and men, including hi* Majesty! ffircn j serving in the East Indies. The ntrmber specified in the Act for 1811, was eighty four thousand eight hundred and one effective men. In the Hotlse of Commons on Saturday, the j Speaker informed the House, that he had receiv- j ed the following letter from the Earl of Welling't ton, dated " Fuente Ouinaldo, May 2S. " Sit— I have communicated to the General Officers. Of ( leers, and troops under my command, the unanimous Reso- lution of the House of Commons, of the 27th April, convey- ing the approbation of the House of the. r Conduit in the seige and capture of iladajoz. 1 beg to a » - ure the House of the high sense 1 entertain ol its approbation, as displayed by the repeated nlarks of favour, with which it has received my conduA and that of the army under my conimaud. 1k likewise return to yttti, Sir, nty thanks tor the manner in which you have communicated this vote, and remain, Hqt f « W2LLIN0TQM," A letter from Lisbon, of the 11th, savs—" A tragical incident took place on board the Union, of 99 guns. Capt. Linzee was stabbed by on « of the crew, who alledged the oppressive behaviour of that officer as the motive of his atrocious con- du£ K Capt. Lirizee is considered to be out « f danger, and will return to England in tbe Sahri- na. The perpetrator of this daring outrage has been tried and executed. " Soult has shot the officer Who commanded. the Frencti at the bridge of Almeraz, when it was t* « ken by Genl Hill; Report does not mention his name." One of the French Papers contains the follorr- ing minute account of the journey of Charles IV, of Spain, and his Queen, from Marseilles ta Rome :— " PARIS, JUNS 13— King Charles IVI. who has, with his family, passed some years at Marseilles, having expressed a desire to reside in a country, the temperature of which might be more comform- able to the climate to which he had been accus. tomed, his Majesty tbe Emperor Cotideived that a residence in Italy would be favourable, both to hit health and that of the Queen. Their Majesties set out from Marseilles on the 25rh ult. on their way to Rome, where they will occupy the Villa Borghese, which his Majesty the Emperor has placed at their disposal. At Aix, Avignon, Va- lence, Chamberry, and all the towns they passed through, their Majesties were received with the greatest honours, and were attended by the Ge- nera's commanding the military divisions, " At Mont Cenis, they1 were received by the Prefect of the Po, who accompanied them as far as the Imperial Palacfe of Stupinis, where they were waited upon by the Prince, the Governor- General. During their stay, his Highness enter- tained them with concerts and hunting parties, the ordinary diversions of his Majesty. From Stupinis their Majesties proceeded to Placentia, where they made some stay. They alighted at the Palace Landi. On the Sth inst. they arrived at Parina, and lodged at the Imperial Palace At five o'clock the Queen received a visit from her niece, the Princess Antoinette of Parma, Who is a nun in the Convent of Orphans, She then saw her nurse, who is still living;; and, after- wards, there was a concert. On the 9th their Majesties continued their journey. Het" Royal Highness the Grand Duchess, who had gone to pass some days at Florence, received them in her Paiacfi. Thence they set out for Rome, where they were expected to arrive on the 17th." The German papers mention, that the Count of Gottorp, who had resided some time at Herrenhut, wished to become a member of the Society of Moravian Brethren ; but th « Directors of the Union would by no means give their consent to it; it being contrary to their institution to connect themselves with cioWned heads, or those who have been such. Private letters by the Aitona Mail state, that the Emperor of Austria has assembled three bodies o troops, consisting of 80,000 each } two of them in Galiicia, and one in Transylvania; MILITARY INQUIRY. The 19th Report of the Commissions of M 1{- tary Inquiry has been laid before Parliament; It contains an inquiry into the establishment of the Royal Military Asylum. O n the sdbjeifl df con* rafts, it contains the following valuable bbsfirva* Hint :— " The most considerable itPrfi in the aotitiat account is the cost of provisions, an ! our attention has been direfted to the mode of su ' ply. All provisions ( as indeed all other articles wanted for the Asylum) are procured by contrafi on tenders^ after advertisement, and the different proposals, with the names of the parties, afe minuted in a book, and can, therefore, be at any time referred to. The contrafts are voidable oti one month's notice from either party. The different articles of provisions are separately contracted for, arid the agreement is made by the pound, stone, Or hun- dred weight, the quartern loaf, nd sack of flstir, according to the customary mods of de- ding f it each. The benefits derived from this mode of ContraSing, are precisely such S; We had antici- pated. when we recommended a similar course iti the supply of Che'sea Hospital, The fenirtl in the Appendix shews the prices at which the seve- ral articles of provisions are now dbtained, and ft is particularly deserving of observation!, with re- ference to what we had occasion to state on the supply of bread to Chelsea Hospital, that bread is delivered to the Asylum at 3\ d. per quartern loaf nndet the assisie price for wheaten bread, al- though no accommodation for baking or storing is afforded at the Asylum. The bread is to be equal to a sample produced at the time the con- traft is entered into, and is not, so far as we could judge, made from 0 > ur of the firs' quality, but it ' is superior in this respeift to the bread in use at Chelsea Hospital. Allowing • nly three farthings on the quartern loaf, for difference of quality and advantage of baking in the Hospital premises, in addition trrrhe abatement on the aisice, the excess of price paid for biead in the Hospital ration, is Id. per lb. or Id. per day on each ration, beyond that at the Asylum. ' The present Contrafl fot fl. ittr, commencing the I2th of April, ts at 104/. per sack, the market price at the time it was en- tered into, being, as stated by other persons ten* dcting, 110/. The price of meat is under 6d. pef pound for beef, and about 7\ d for mutton, The 1 contraft for coals is at S8r, per chaldron.— 1' htse prices confirm the opinion we entertain, and have sometimes had occasion to ejpress, thai the full benefits of competition are obtained in t ose cases only whet- e the tradesman is at liberty to tender for the supply of the single commodity in which he deals.*** The bills are pun& ually discharged at the end; of every quarter j and this circumstance has no doubt a very Uvcurable ir; dnans9. aa the. corutaiSs/' BELFAST ani^. l'.

M NOTTINGHAM. JUNE 24.—{ Xtp. M.)— Out; rapes of a ferions nature s. fill, prevail in this town • and neighbourhood. A few evenings ago a per. son who had been active in assisting to bring the evil. disposed persons to justice, was shot at in his p- arrlen, at the close of the day, by a party of the J. ridditec, and narrowly escaped with his life. Parties of these deluded people are in the habit of assemblies'- in different parts of the town, to carry their revenpeful designs into execution, and it is not without- the greatest risk that anv of the mili- tary can walk the streets, of an evening. Bfigade- Major Hurrmhrev, who^ is on the staff here, was laid wait for this evening, on his return from the theatre { which s » em< to be a favorite resort of these lawless ruffians)." by a large party, and with- out the slightest provocation on his parr, was Itnoclced down bv a shower of stones, which they carried in pocket handkerchiefs, two of which took effect, and one, which struck him on the forehead, nearly terminated his existence. His wound, how. ever, has been dressed, and great hopes are enter- tained that nothing of a serious nature will result from ft. We have also extracted the following particu- lars respertinp- the spirit of outrage that has so long prevailed in some of the Nor hern Countries, from the papers re eived this morning : Our Huddarsfield Correspondent, nnder the datp of the 25rh instant, jays—" Last Monday, about midnight, a great number of armed men, with their faces disfigured by broad hlack marks down each cheek, and over the forehead, assem- bled near the dwelling- house of Mr. FR- ber, a shop- keener at Briestwistle, in this neighbourhood, and after firing two puns or pistols, demanded admit- tance into Mr. Fisher's house, which he refused.

Not intimidated by this th'eat, Mr. Foster riuhed from them towards the door, when he was seized bv six other men, who placing a sheet over his head, face, and arms, kept him in that situation while their comrades ransacked the house, and took from his pocket- book bills to the amount of jgll^, besides £ 20 in notes, and some cash ; they also took a quantity of notes and cash out of a drawer, but to what amount Mr. Fisher does not exactly know.

Extract of a Letter from St. Petersburg}?. « ' Thp story of a conspiracy against the life of the Emperor, is without foundation. It is true, however, that Speranskoi and Magnatskoi have been banished to Siberia. The trntb is now gene- rally known, tho' only whispered. Nothing, has appeared in our News- raper. " Speranskoi is a man of uncommon ability, an elegant clasical scholar, and the finest writer we have ever had ; his manners affable, refined and captivating almost to sorcery. Such a man is a country, where merit is a surer means of ad- vancement, than birth or fortune, roit'd not fail of hastily rising in a department in which he had an opportunity of displaying his uncommon fer. ius and acquirements— he rose rapidly to the office - f Secretary of State, He wanted, how- ever, one quality, honesty. He was expensive, far beyond his income ( and he had no private fortune.) Admonition from higher personages had no effect; unwilling to lose a valuable ser- vant, and to prevent disastrous consequences, the Emperor gave him large sums of money, and ordered that care should be taken that his pecunl ary circumstances were not at any time embar. rassed. But this generous and wise treatment of his Sovereign could not make of a rogue an hon- est man. Whether the remedy came too late, or, s some suspect, he had strong personal ani- mosities, lie sold himself to the tyrant of the world, who achieves more by his purse and his perfidy than by his sword. <• While the secrets of the Cabinet of St. Pe- tersburgh were made known at Paris, the Russian mission had found a channel, by means of agents, in a much humbler but not less confidential sltua. tion, to obtain information of the preparations that were privately making to attack Russia, and the measures ' hat were pursuing in different parts, with o- her powers, to facilitate the execution of the great objeCt. In consequence of this know- ledge, Russia has been for a considerable time preparing for the event, and had gained Sweden to her party. It is supposed some information had also csme from Stockholm. " It became evident at St. Cloud; that Russia had knowtedge of their secret proceedings. Spe. ranskoi at length le. irned the name of ihe person who communicated intelligence to the Russian mission, and made it known to the French agents at St. Petersbtirgh. The man's name was Michel Michcl- e.—* Befor » he was arrested, he had time to thrust a large bundle of papers into the hands of a young Russian nobleman, who immediately, left Paris, and by a circuitous route reached the Rus- sian frontier, before the telegraphic dispatch to at- test him arrived.— At Berlin he had the start of the telegraph but one hour. Torture had made Michelle confess ihe. delivery of the packet of pa- pers. Had it been immediately discovered, it had never reachef) St. Petersburg]"!— Michelle was shot. The papers discovered the treaclieiy of Speranskoi, the utmost extent of which is not known. " It js now, I thinJ?, impossible for any fon « tn Minister to pe- ne'trate into . the Secrets of this Cabi- i discovery was mad • net, Tiie)- will find spies, who are winked at> that ' ~ will give ihero false intelligence, and true intelli- gence of no consequence. Some changes in the Ministry are expelled ; it is'said Chartcriiky, who ,- was. foimerly Minister for Foreign Affairs, ( he is a Pole aVd a Catholic) will be Chancellor BY I- XPIIESS. In another part of this day's Paper we iosei extracts from the London Prints of" the 29tb>.- » - The following is an abstract of the firinctfal cot » ' tents of Journals of the 30th, whj. ch last night ai j j rived, by express, from Doitagbadee London, Tuesday, June $ 0. | A Malta and Gibraltar Mail arrived this morn- | ing, brought by the Amelia packet to EalmoutH. ! She sailed from Gibraltar so recently' a?' the lOtn instant, and has brought intelligence of a moit gratifying nature from that part of Spain. I By the postscript of a letter, dated Stockholnj, Jane 12, we learn, that a courier had just arrived ; in that city, with intelligence that hostilities* had commenced between the Russians and the French but the particulars had not transpired Pilot. Another Anholt mail arrived last night," and still we have no account of hostilities. The let- ters from St. Petersburg state with confidence that peace has been concluded with Turkey, and that the ratification of the Porte is forthwith ex- pected. The Emperor is expected to return to his capital after the arrangements for the campaign are finally settled at Wilna. MURAT ( King of Naples) has arrived at Dant^ ic, at the head of the French cavalry, which, as we stated yesterday, is rapidly extending over the sea- coast of the Baltic. The prospers of a ftiendly intercourse between this country and Russia are highly encouraging ; the private advices from Stockholm assure us " that the Russian Commandants of Riga, Revel, and Cronstadt, had received orders for allowing the entry into those ports of all vessels, excepting those of France ; and for permitting all ships to sail, laden with wheat, barley, & c. for any friendly or neutral port, under the convoy of Swedi h or English ships of war. In consequence of this re- solution, which was communicated to Sir J. Saiu marez by a merchant, the English Admiral im- mediately dispatched a frigate for Riga." The abrogation of tine Orders in Council con- tinues to diffuse joy and satisf. xClion throughout the manufacturing districts. On Saturday, at Leeds Market, a greater quantity of cloth. was purchased than has been known to have been bought in one day at any former petiod. At Liverpool one and a half millions of yards of j bounty goods have been shipped within the last week, worth 36125,000, and it is said, that two and a half millions of yards more are in progress of embarkation. Within the same interval of a week, £ 12,000 convoy duty, at 4 per cent, has been paid, indicating further shipments to the amount of £ 300,000. At the same port, we are also informed, that the wages of the Lancashire Manufacturers have been raised 1/. per cut, or about 2s. SJ. per week. We are happy to find by New- Nork papers to the 22d tilt, that the hostile tone and temper which gave so much alarm when the last advices from America came away, have entirely subsided, and that every thing wears the asped of a dispo sition to peace and Conciliation. Some explana- tions given by Mr. Foster, would, it was expected, be made the subjeCt of a Message to Congress, favourable to the re- establishment of a good un- derstanding. Under such circumstances there can be little doubt that concord will be altogether restored by the arrival of the intelligence of the repeal of the Orders in Council.

Lord Castlereagh pre- sented at the same time a sealed packet of papers containing the secret information recently com- municated to his Majesty's Ministers. These Documents were referred to a Select Committee of twenty one Members, to be appoint- ed this; day. by ballot. r.

" ' Last night beinjr fixed ftr Mrs. Siddor « ,' s benes- fit, and last uopenrance on the Stage, the eager- ness of the FuWic'tO" witness the Farewell Address , of is justTy celebrated ACtress was so g, reat:, that a . e'onsid" rab! e crowd had a^ mbled- at Vhfe H'dors of the Theatre before five o'clock,. The doors were opened about a quarter before six. o'clock, and though the conc^ ttrje . of people w. is very great, yet there was less confn, sinn< and distnrbancef than might have been expeC> ed~ on srtch an occa- sion. A t half- past*- six o'clock- the house was com- pletely filled ; the pit was particularly crowded. . The olay was Macb'lh^ ri^ her performance of the Lady gave very stri- king'prooF of the lo- jswliich must now be sust^ ined^ By the stage ; for in- none of the extensive cirtle of. her performance does she display more console"-- usly that powerful > ra! ent. for the delineation of the lofty passions of the soul, which have so- lon; r" distinguished her thea- trical, career, than in Lady Macbeth. The stipe- ri irify which an alnbitiftus wornap obtains by her' addresv over the mind of the man" whom she sa,. duces into guilt, was delineated by her, in the two first aCts, with an art so perO-. t, and with such' strength of colouring, as'to make the most frtCiBle impression on the speflarors— we sav speCtuors.,. for it is the necnliai5 felicity of her talent t^ jit her expression,- her . attrmdes, and action speak to the feeiin » s as sensibly as her voice. " This powerful " instrument of acting tor the'eye, the most forcibly ' used in the banquejting scene; " and also in that, which, by its impression, hec- tme the last scene of' the play ; for^ after her exhibition of a tortured conscience in her sleep, the Company would set; and hear no more— the- electrical effect was pror, duced— and the afidience literally encored tiie scene. They became boisterous in their applause of her acting, anolin'calling ; v a repetition.—_ The incongruity of stopping rhe march of a Tragedy, for the encore of a, whole scene, like a song in an opera,' struck one part of tlx- hou « e, while another Continued to demand it. , Tile cur- tain dropt— an attempt was n. ade to solicit the' pleasure of thp house to pen,;-! the play to pto. ceed— but no— and after a long suspension the curtain rose—- Mrs Siddons sppeared to take her leave. She was seated by a table, ill the dress of the sleep scene. Her advance to the front of- the stage was met with universal applause; and af- ter a moment's apparent struggle with herself, she began ihe following Address ( written by H° race Twiss, Esq. ) with great feeling and effeCt :— Who has not felt, how growing use endears The fond remembrance of our former years ? • Who has not s- gti'd, when doom'd to leave at last The hopes of youth, tkie habits » f the past. The thousand ties. aud interests, that import A second nature to the human heart, And, wreathing round it close, like tendril!,' climb, Blooming in age, and sanctified by tiihe X , YesJ at this moment crowd upon my mind Scenes of bright days for ever left behind Bewildering visions of enraptured yoUth, - When hope. 3nd. fancy wore the hues of truth ; And long- forgotten years that almost seem . ' The faded traces of a morning dream! > Swset are those mournful thoughts : for they renew- The pleasing sense tif all t owe to ybu—' For each in- piring smile, and soothing tear— For those full honoors of ifiy long career, That cheer'd my earliest hope, and chasM my latest fear! And thonttb, for me, those tears shall flow no more, And the wirm' syn^ ine of your smile is o'er—• Though the bright, heims are lading, fa. sr away, . That shone uiiclnu led through my summer day ;- Yet " grateful Memory shall refleCt their light O'er the dim shadows of the comipg night, " And lend to later life a softer tone, A moonlight tint,, a lustre, of her own! Judges and Friends! to whom the tragic strain « ^ i- Mttase's fatling never ti - ke in vain, Perhaps yotir hearts, when years have glided by, And past, emotions « a!. e a Meeting sigh, May thiyic OH her, whose lips have pour'd so long The charmed so'rrowj of yyur Shakspeare's song— On her, who. parting to return no more, Is now th- mourner she but scent d before— Herself subdu'tt, resigns . the melting sjiell, And breaths, with swelling heart, her 1 • - g, her last fare- well! ' v ,,'..- Mrs. Siddons delivered this Address with much firmness, inipressiveness and effeCt, until near the close, when, her voice faultering and dying away, she was handed off the stage by Mr. Kemble she retired bowing, and followed by acclamations from all parts of the most crowded house that we have ever seen. On the fall of the cortain, Mr. Kemble return- ed to know whether it was the pleasure of the audience that the play should go on? but they would hear no more, and the greater part ietired immediately. Mrs. Siddons first appeared in the Theatfe-. Royal, Drury- lane, in .1775, under an engage- ment made with Mr. Siddons, at Cheltenham,' that sufcimer, by the Rev. Dr. Bate Dudley, for, his friend Mr. Garriek. Her sal- At. y was £ 0 per weekend that, of Mr- Siddqns 40s. Her fir^. t ap- pearance was in Portia, in the Merchant of Feitice, a- rph^ rajCtqr not best suited to her- powers; and al- terwards. she made a more unfortunate attempt m corfledy, in Mrs. Cowley's Runaway; soon. afeer . which her admirers had the'mortihcal'ion to mt ' Sir Edward' and Lady , M, ay embarked at Do- riaghadee for P. irtpa'ri- ck, on Wednesday- last, on board the Westmorland Packet. .

Tuo » * Verses are part of a Metrical Romance, ( not yet published) en ' he commencement of the war between the Spaniard* and Chilians, which Ercilla has celebrated in his Poem Called the " ARANCANA," from the name of the prin- cipal tribe who resisted the power of the Spaniards, with va- rious success, for above two hundred years. Ercilla had at- tended PHILIP the Second as a Page to England, when he became the censort of MART. In the Romance, Ercilla is supposed to have formed a friendship with an English youth, nf a noble family, and a more tender attachment to his sister, who had both secret!? entertained the Doctrines of the Re- fSTmation. Some attempts made by the Briton to change the religions faith of the I. over fbut in vain) came to the know- ledge of the Kin- ^- and the brother and sister both suddenly disappear. Ercilla long uncertain of their fate, after he had returned wiih the King to Spain j learns at last, to his great surprise, that his B itish friend, after a series of uncommon adventures and escapes, had found refuge in Chili:— that iu consequence of a domestic injury, he had incited the Chi- lians ( till then submissive! to assert their independence; and tha- he had after- led them to victory. On this intelligence, Ercilla indulges a faint hone that the object of his passion yet survived, and had probably attended her brother on his voyage. Inspired by this hope, he prevails on the King ( whose favour be had obtained by his fidelity) to suffer him to join the powers then wsbarking for the western world— the sequel of bis adventures are detailed in his own celebrat- ed poem. The fontrait exhibited there, between the unsub- mitting spirit ef the Chilians, and the direful effect* of Span- hh revenge, may with some probability be conjectured to have had a partial influence, not only in humanizing the Spaniards in some degree, but in fostering that noble spirit • f independance, whose signal consequences are now the ad- miration of mankind. 11 was not Cupid's flickering torch alone, That led the dauntless youth from zone to zone, Nor patriot care, nor hope to leave a name Of martial glory on the lists of Fame : — !* tItTa'i * Genius call'd him o'er the deep; That mighty Spirit taught his hands to sweep The sounding lyre, and fir'd the vent'rous niuse To paint the scenes of death in glowing hues. TaxRE Spain's atrocious deeds were blazon'd high ; Her own dire image to her startled eye Displsy'd its hideous lineaments at large, ' Till conscience woke, and own'd the dreadful charge. By tliine, as by th' Orphean Ivre of old, The heart of Man to Reason's lore controll'd— « Confess'd the charge; and, tho' Ambition bore His standard long aloft on Chili's shere, Y* t hnman rights were own'd, and hostile wrath, PursuM on listed fields the work of de* th.

TUESDAY.— Paid nine pounds to seven differ- ent people, bur could not buy the second- hand pair of Mack breeches offered me as a ba'gain by Cabbage the taylor : my wife wanting a petticoat above all things, and neither Betsy nor Polly hav- ing a shoe to go to ehureh. WEDNESDAY.— My wife bought a petticoat for herself, and shoes for her two daughters; hut un- luckily, coming home, dropt half a guinea through a hole she had never before perceived in her poc- ket, and reduced all our cash in the world tohalf- a- cown. Item ; ch'd my poor woman for being afflicted at the misfortune., and tenderly advised her to depend upon the goodness of God. THURSDAY Received a note from the ale- house, the Top of the Hill, informing me that a Gentleman begged to speak to me on pressing business;— went: Found it was an unfortunate member of a strolling company of players, who was pledged for seven- pence halfpenny— in a struggle what to do. The baker, though we had paid him but on Tuesday, quarrelled with us to avoid giving any credit in future ; and George Greasy, the butcher, sent us word he had heard it whispered, the Rector intended to change his Curate, and therefore advised us to deal with Peter Paunch, at the other end of the town— mortifying reflections tnese s but a want of hu- manity is, in my opinion, a want of justice: paid the stranger's reckoning out of the shilling in my pocket, and gave him the remainder to prosecute his journey. FRIDAY A very scanty dinner, and pretended therefore to be ill, in order to leave something for my poor wife and children. Told my wife what I had done with the shilling; the excellent crea- ture blessed the goodness of my heart, and burst into tears Mem. Never to contradict her as long as I live. SATURDAY.— Wrote a Sermon. SUNDAY.— Preached my Sermon at twe dif- ferent Parish Churches, and came home exces- sively wearied, and excessively hungry. No more money than 1\ d. in the house.— But see the goodness of God 1 the strolling player whom I had relieved was a man of fortune, who acci- dentally heard that I wjfs as humane as I w s indigent, and from a generous eccentricity of tamper, was led to do me an essential piece of service. I had not been an hour in the house, when he came in, and, when my wife was cook- ing the produce of our last penny for dinner, he put a £ 50 note in my hand; and the next day presented me with a living of j£ 300 a- year.— Mem. Never to forget such a benefactor. SOCIETY OF FRIENDS. SIR— The situation of the Curates has at length I understand, come under the notice of the Impe- j rial Parliament, and Lord Harrowby has brought a bill in their favour into the House of Lords. I do not know whether it be intended to extend the provisions of it to Ireland or not, nor how far it is calculated to operate in their favour. I make no doubt but it would be a gratification to many i of your Readers, if you would give them a sum. ! mary of the bill in your useful Paper. It has been I long ( he custom of all Governments to give su- perannuated soldiers pensions, as a provision for them when they became unable to serve ; and our own excellent Prince has lately added to the usual provision, an extra allowance to Officers who have been wounded in the service. Does there not seem to be an equal claim to lie on the part of the Ser- vants of God, who have worn out their strength in the best cause; and might they not, with jus. tice, expeCt a similar annuity, when their strength has become inadequate to the important service? The poor Curate, who has injured his lungs in de- claring the truths of the Gospel, while his Rector has lain by in idleness, appears to have as just a claim to some legal remuneration as any Officer whatever. Reserving any further remarks until you ahull have favoured tis with some abstract of the bill in question. I take the liberty of enclosing you the Journal < I a Wiltshire Curate, which I picked up somewhere in my reading, and vou wili oblige me by inserting it. I think I seethe grateful surprise of the poor fellow and his excel- lent wife, wheu his unknown friend so uneipeit- edly presented him with the £ 50 note, and the living of ^ 300 a year.— I affl, Sir, Your obedient servant, HARROWBV.

Item ; the THE EPISTLE FROM THE YEARLY MEETING, HELD IN LONDON', BY ADJOURNMENTS, FROM THE GO ™ OF THE 5TH MONTH TO THE30TH OF THE SAME, INCLUSIVE, 1812. To the Quarterly and Monthly Meetings of Friends, in Great Britain, Ireland, and elsewhere. DEAR FRIENDS— Being permitted to meet at the present time, to investigate the state of our religi ous Society, and participating togeiher in that love which, we believe, takes its origin in the boundless mercy of God through Christ our Holy Redeemer, through Him who died for us; we have found this love to extend to you our Breth- ren. We have considered your situation, whether in your larger or smaller meetings; and as we have again been impressed with the belief, in renewing the written salutation of our love, we shall be found in the way of our duty— we have de; sired to be directed to impart to you such infor- mation and Counsel as may tend to your increase in the fear of the Lord, and in the consolation* of his presence. Seeing, therefore, the infinite value of love, that ind'ispensible qualification of a true disciple, we are desirous of pressing it on every individual, to examine impartially how Far he feels it ^ flou- rish in his own mind, and to influence all his ac- tions, thus inducing others to follow him as he is endeavouring to follow Christ. And we believe that nothing" will be so favourable to the preserva- tion of this holy disposition as humility of heart, a temper in which we constantly s e our elves un- worthy of the least of the Lord's mercies, and dependant only on his compassion for our final acceptance. Seeing also that no awakened mind can be without a view to a better and an endur- ing state, and that no one knows how soon lie may be called to put off mutability; let us bear m perpetual recollection that, in the state to which we aspire, there is nothing but eternal love, joy, and adoration, in the presence of Him through whose love we were first awakened. In contemplating this copious subject, though we are not apprehensive of more symptoms of de- ficiency than in former years, we feel disposed afresh to encourage friends to be prompt in un- dertaking and prudent in executing the blessed office of peace- maker. And we believe the patient endeavours of faithful friends will be generally crowned with success, in proportion as their own minds are seeking to Jesus for assistance in per* forming an office on which he has pronounced his blessing—- and in endeavouring to lead the minds of any contending persons, to a sense of the ab- solute necessity for all true disciples to live in peace one with another, and to forgive one an- other even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven the; .. * Before we quit the subject of Christian lore, let us remind you that no limit of a name can bound its influence. In this season Of almost unprecedented pressure on some of the poorer classes of our countrymen, we deem it particu larly desirable, that our dear friends every where should not be backward in examining into their distresses— but liberal in contributing a due pro- portion of relief. Many are allowed to have tem- poral possessions sufficient to do this with com. parative ease.— Let those, therefore, remember that they ate but stewards, and let them seek to be good and faithful stewards* And it is pro- bable that others, not equally abounding in the good things of this life, may find that in using moderation in their owu expenditure, they may have wherewith to supply the wants of others, and to make the heart of the poor man sing for jnv. Oh ! the blessing of clothing the naked ml feeding the hungry ! who would not desire to be entitled to a share in it 1 Moderation in personal and domestic exoense, every way become the followers of a lowly- heart- ed Saviour. We are therefore engaged to r> r" ss it upon our vottng friends just setting out in life, to beware of needless expense in the furni ' ire of their houses, and in their general domestic h ibit*. Even those who think ' heir property may enri'le them to abundance or to elegance, bv indulging in costly habits are setting but an ill pxamole to } those of mo e contracted means— md as we are but too apt to copy that which coincides with o> ir natural disposition, our want of circumspection may prove an incitement to extravagance in others, and prompt them to use exertions for supporting an appearance, which may divert ; them from the true business of life— the daily I study to be approved in the sight of God. And, d ar youth in general, especially you whose period of life may not be so advanced as j that of those whom we have just addressed, even : you, who have left, or are about to leave, the j protection of a parent, to enter into the busy scenes of life— some (.." you, probably, in ponulous towns, far different from the retirement of your paternal abodes— we beseech you to guard against the new temptations which may now assail you. Oppose the first incitement to any liberty incon- sistent with your principles, and be willing to seek the society of experienced friends, in the places where you may be situated, and to receive their admonition with meekness and attention. Never forget that the season of early youth is a season of peculiar danger— and if you grow up under this sense, you will from time to time be led to cry for preservation to Him, who has said ( and his words are Amen for ever,) " Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out f." The usual accounts of sufferings brought in this year, chiefly for tithes and those called church rates, and for military demands amount to thir- teen thousand six hundred and forty- five pounds.|| Five y° ung men have been imprisoned for refus- ing to serve in the local militia.— Besides these and other accounts which we have received from our several Quarterly mee'ings, we have an epis- tie from Ireland, and one from each of the Yearly Meetings on tr. e American Continent. The Yearly Meetings of our American Brethren seem vigilent in their attention to the support of our testimonies, and to purposes of general benevolence. The due education of our youth still forms a part of the concern of the Yearly Meeting of Pennslyvania— which has also, together with those of Maryland and New York, continued to care for the inha- bitants of the wilderness ; and those of Carolina, Virginia, and Midland tes ify in their epistles, their unremitting concern for the state of the en- slaved Africans in their land. Although in our country, as well as in theirs, the infamous traffick wi; h Africa in slaves has been abolished by law, we desire friends not to forget that slavery still exists within the - British Empire, and to suffer the sympathy still to flow towards its oppressed victims. Thus, dear friends, we trust we may say that both abroad and at heme, the Lord is influenc- ing his servants to remain on the watch. Though the subjects of our concern may be somewhat various, it is still pleasant to reflect that all are aiming at the same object, and all looking to the same Lord for his gracious assistance. Having the same faith, and being baptized with the same baptism, even those plunges into exercise, and con- flict which wash us from confidence in our own exertions, how can it be otherwise than that we should rely, as we have just hinted, on the same Lord ? May this unity of travail encourage us all to abide stedfast in our allegiance to him, that in due season we may reap the unfading ie- ward of his holy peace. Having touched on some of the subjects which have warmed our hearts in desire that we may be built up a spiritual house, we intreat you to con- sider that it is by means of individual exertions, under the the direction of the omnipotent Master- builder, that the work is to be effected to his praise. Be vigilant, therefore, we beseech you • be constant, when cases require it, in faith- ful and tender admonition. Neglect in this point gives countenance to defects and increases them, whilst tke faithful admonisher may hope to par- take of the reward of those who " turn many to righteousness," who, saith the prophet, " shall shine as the stars for ever and ever J." Now, dear friends, in conclusion, let us observe, that love, Christian love, is the parent of every virtue— it restrains our immoderate gratification of personal indulgence— it expands OHr hearts to every class of society, and to every modification of the human species— it makes us prompt to lend a hand of help to such as may stray from the path of safety— it leads to universal benevolence— and as it is the origin of e. very Jfood work, so through the grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, it will be the reward of a life passed in his service, in its native region, the realm of unmixed love, with him for ever.— Amen.

The Deputation appointed to wait on Mr. Cur- ran, reoorted his answer to a general meeting on the 29: h of June. ANSWER. BP pleased to accept my most grateful acknowledgment of the honour you conf r noon me in the offer of that ^ Jhair, which was so splendidly filled by our illustrious and lament- ed Countryman I cannot but most highly value such a mark of favour from so respeft ible a body of my Fellow- Citixens. It would be an unworthy afFeftation were I to say, that rhe gratification which I feel in accepting this offer, was in any degree diminished by the reflection, that a sort of com- parison may be suggested, in which I could not have even the consolation of thinking, that the vi& ory under which so unequal a competitor must sink, could add any thing to the credit of so honoured a predecessor i I know the gifts which he has conferred upon science, and the glory which he has qtieathed to Ireland, in a name which cannot be involved in the mortality of his person, but must live for ever. But I cannot think myself humiliated by the consciousness of individual disparity, while I feel that I am an Irishman, and, as such, am raised in participating the honour of my Coun- try A long and intimate friendship with Mr. Krrwan, gave me tbe opportunity of knowing how he felt and thought on such subjects as I was capable of discussing with him. As a man, his heart was exalted sbovt every vulgar prejudice, and every interested antipathy— it was enamoured with liberty, and recoiled from thraldom As a Philosopher, he saw that servitude was a condition befitting no human being but him who was vile enough to infl; 6t or to endure it. I can assume hut little praise to myself in venturing to hepe, that such facilities of communication were not utterly lost upon me— and that the high and manly tone of spirit, in which he took an interest in the various and wayward des- tinies of Ireland, could not fail of making some impression upon me, to your kind belief that this may have been the case, and to that alone, I attribute your election of me to succeed him; because, in that point only could you have hoped, that in my succession he would not be altogether unrepresented. The time has not long passed away in which I should ha « e been unwilling to allude to my attachment to our com- mon Country: but in this happier period of patriotic libe- rality, thank God, there is nothing rare or peculiar in the sentiment; and every man may freely profess it, without incurring the charge of egotism or vanity. Shall I presume to advert to the over- measure of com- mendation which your kindness has led you to use to my- self? I should be mortified if you could suspetft that while I felt the kindness, I did not also look fariher to the motive of S'jch di- proportioned approbation. It is wise and politic to reward even the most barren good intention beyond the exarSt limits of its claim— and perhaps it belongs peculiarly to tbe nature of the Irish heart, that it m « y be generous and even prodigal, without any risk of impoverishment.

I embrace )• with all my heart. Your affec- tionate JOSEPH," At a general meeting of the Dublin Library, on the 22d of June, the following Address ( drawn up by Charles Phillips, Esq.) to the Master of the Rolls, on his election to the Presidency of that Institution, was unanimously agreed to:— To [ the R'tghi Honourable JOBN Putifox CoxZAtf, Master of the Rolls, ( SIR— The death of Mr. Kirwan having tendered vacant the Chair of our Institetion, we proceeded to the very dirt- cult duty of seletftiug his successor. Onr arduous ebjeS was to discover a name, which united the purest principles, with th* most brilliant genius; which adversity had proved, patriotism endeared, and years made venerable.— A name which was of native growth, and car. ried in its very sound the Conviction of its value— which taught purity, while it inspired pride, and shamed the venal, while it gladdened th* virtuous— A name, of which in our best times we had been familiarly vain, and which, in our worst, like an Orphan pledge, had been fondled by the feel- ings of the Country. 1 JOSETII BONAPARTE TO HIS BROTHER NAPOLEON. « Madrid, March 23, 1812. " A year will now soon have elapsed since I asked your Majesty's opinion relative to my return to Spain: your Mijestv wished me to return, and here I am. Your Majesty had the goodness to say, that it would always be time enough to leave it, if the hopes I had conceived should not be realized ; and in that case your Majesty would se- cure me an asylum in the South of the Empire, where I might pass my days in tranquillity. Sire, events have not corresponded to my hopes; I have dom- no good, nor do 1 hope to do any. I therefore intreat your Majesty to permit me to deposit in your hands the rights which you de- signed to bestow on me, with the Crown of Spain, four years ago. I never had any other objeCt in accepting the Crown of this Country, but the happiness of this vast empire. Itiisnot in my power to realize my hopes. I intreat your Ma- jesty to receive me benignly into the number of your subjects, and to be assured, that you never had a more faithful servant than the friend which nature gave yu, your Imperial and Royal Ma- jesty's most affectionate Brother, JOSEPH/' II.— TO THE QUEEN OE SPUN. " Madrid, March 23, 1 SI 2. " My beloved Friend— You m-' st deliver the letter I sent you to the Emperor; if he carries into execution the Decree of Union, and publishes it in the Gazettes: in any other esse you will wait till you hear farther from me. In the event of t your delivering the letter, send Tie the Emperor's answer and passports. Remi his informed me of something, which gives me sufficient concern.-— If they intend sending me the necessa.- y funds, why so long delay the convoys, and not send me bills on the public treasury bj Estafettes ? Em- brace my children for me. " P. S.— If you find that Mr. Mollien has sent ' me no money since the 500,000 lirres Which I have received, in January, wher you receive this letter, deliver my renunciation to the Emperor. No one is obliged to a'tempt absolute impossi- bilities : such is the state of my treasury." III.— TO THE SAME. " Vladrid, March 2S. " My Dear— Mr. Deslandes, who will deliver you this letter, will state to youall tbe particulars you wish to know respecting mr situation ; I am going to speak to you of myself, in order that you may lay it before the Emjeror, and that he may come to some determinatioi, whatever it may be. Every thing renders me desirous to get out of my present situation:— 1st, If the Emperor makes war with Russia, and judges me useful here, I will stay with the Geneial Command and General Administration. If ht makes war, and does not give me the command nor leftve me rhe Administration of the country, I wish to return to France. 2d. If he does no make war upon Russia, and whether he gives ne the command or no, I will remain, provided he dies not desire from me any thing which may make it supposed I con- sent to the dismemberment of tie Monarchy; and if he leaves me sufficient troopsand territory, and sends me the monthly loan of 1,000,000, which he promised. Under those cicumstances 1 will remain as long as possible, siice I consider my honour interested in not leavinj Spain abruptly ; i as in leaving it dining the war with England, sa- crifices would be required of m>, which I cannot, or ought not to make, but at a general peace, for the good of Spain, France, anc Europe. A De- cree of Union from the Ebro, ariving unexpected, ly upon me, will mal « : me setbut the following day. If tbe Emperor defers his projects till a peace, let him give me the meais ot existing dur- ing the war. If the Emperor wishes 1 should v; o, or has determined| npon any of he measures which will produce this elftCI, 1 woud choo » e to return !

Circumscribed by this narrow boundary, and reduced to a few shreds of worthle- s parchment, those haughty and innovating Decrees Which, in their iife- time convulsed Empires, and tore the scanty morsel from the grasp of starving millions, now repose in harmless ob- curitv. Through the baser passions ol the human heart, the moral Genealogist • lay perhaps trace their origin to a remote distance* but their immediate progenitors, were MALIGNITY and INSA rsiAXioN. Fostered by unremitting parental care, and the laborious exertions of their nearest relatives, SoriiisrRY and FALSEHOOD, they rapidly attained a formidable and disgraceful maturity, During a d sastrous period of Six Years, they exercised an uncontrolled oppression over the industry and resources of the Poof; Polluted the National Reputation for Commercial In egrity with the mojt loathsome viihmies; Cherished the infant ManufaCio. es of our Rivals; and insulted the Public Righis of Mankind, by a long series of ha'eful and aggressive Depredations. Their career was at length arrested hy the awakened energies of iheir vidims ; and after a resistance which only proved the genuine cowardice of Tyranny when opposed to the united efforts of Rectitude and Patrioti- m— • overwhelmed by the contempt of the Wise, and the exertions of the Good, they expired June 10th, 1812. On the same day, their only legitimate desct- ndant, THE LICENSE SY- STEM, shared the fate of its guilty parents; and their death is thus recorded by a British Public, as an Event awfully instructive to furure Legislators, and strongly illustrative of the consolatory and important Truth, , that it is essential to the very Nature ui Evil, to issue in its own Destruction.
