" The Committee on Foreign Relations, to whom was referred the Message of the President of the United State* of the 1st of June, 1812, Report, " That afrer the experience which the United States have had of the great injustice of the Bri- tish Government towards them, exampled by so many alls of violence and oppression, it will be more difficult to jusrify to the impartial world their patient oroearance, than the measures to which it has become necessary to resort, to avenge the wrongs, and vindicate the rights and honour of the nation. Your Committee are happy to ob- serve, on a dispassionate review of the conduit of the United States, that they see in it no cause for censure. " If a long forbearance under injuries ought ever to be considered a virtue in any nation, it is one which peculiarly becomes the United States. No people ever had stronger motives to cherish peace— none have ever cherished it with greater sincerity and zeal. " But the period has now arrived when the United States must support their character and station among the nations of the earth, or submit to the most shameful degradation. Forbearance has ceased to be a virtue. War on the one side and peace on the other, is a situation as ruinous as it is disgraceful. The mad ambition, the lust of power, and commercial avarice of Great Bri tain, arrogating to herself the complete dominion of the ocean, and exercising over it an unbounded and lawless tyranny, have left to neutral nat ons an alternative only, between the base surrender of their rights, and a inanly vindication of them,— Happily for the United States, their destiny, under the aid of Heaven, is in their hands. The crisis is formidable only by their love of Peace. As soon as it becomes a duty to relinquish that situa- I tion, danger di- appears. They have suffered no wrongs, they have received no insults, however great, for which they cannot obtain redress. " More than seven years have elapsed, since the commencement of this system of hostile aggression j by the British Government, on the rights and in- j terests of the United States. The manner of its j commencement, was not less hostile, than the spirit I with which it has been prosecuted. The United State3 have invariably done every thing in their power to preserve the- relations of friendship with Great Britain. Of this disposition they gave a distinguished proof, at the moment when they ware made the victims of an opposite policy. The wrongs of the last war had net been forgotten at the commencem nt of the present one. They warned us of dangers, against which it was sought to provide. As early as the year 1804, the Mini- ster of the United States at London was instructed, to invite the Biitish Government to enter into a negociation on all the points on which a collision might arise between the two countries, in the course of the war, and to propose to it an arrangement of theii claims on fair and reasonable conditions. The invitation was accepted. A negociation had commenced and was depending, and nothing had occurred to excite a doubt that : t would not ter- minate to the satisfaflion of both the parties. It was at this time, and under these circumstances, that an attack was made, by surprise, on an im- portant branch of the American commerce, which affelted every part of the United States, and in- volved many of their citizens in ruin. " The commerce on which this attack was so unexpi& edly made, was between the United States and the Colonies of France, Spain, and the °>- her enemies of Great Britain. A commerce just in itself— sanctioned by the example of Great Britain in regard to the trade with her own colonies— sanctioned by a solemn alt between the two Go- vernments in the last war ; and sanctioned by the practice of the British Government in the present war, more than two years having elapsed, without any interference with it. " The injustice of this attack could only be equalled by the absurdity of the pretext alledged tor it. It was pretended by the British Govern- ment, th; lt in case of war, her enemy had no right to modify its colonial regulations, so as to miti- gate the calamities of war to the inhabitants of its colonies. This pretension, peculiar to Great Bri- tain, is utterly incompatible with the right of so- vereignty, in every independent state. If we re- cur to the well- established and universally admit- ted law of nations, we shall find no sanction to it, in that venerable code. The sovereignty of every state is co- extensive with its dominions, and can- not be ahrogated, or curtailed in its rights, as to any part, except by conquest. Neutral nations have a right to trade to every port of either belli- gerent, which is not legally blockaded— and in all articles which are not contraband of war— Such is the absurdity of this pretension, that your Committee are aware, especially after the able manner in which it has been heretofore refuted, and exposed, that they would offer an insult to the understanding of the House, if they enlarged on it, and if any thing could add to the high sense of the injustice of the British Government in the transaction, it would be the contrast which her conduct exhibits in regard to this trade, and in regard to a similar trade by neutrals with her own colonies. It is known to the world, that Great Britain regulates her own trade, in war and • in peace, at home and in her own colonies, as she finds for her interest— that in war she relaxes the restraints of her colonial system in favour of the colonies, and that it never was suggested that she had not a right to do it— or that a neutral in tak- ing advantage of the relaxation violated a belli- gerent right of her enemy— but with Great Bri. tain every thing is lawful. It is only in a trade with her enemies that the United States can do wrong. With them all trade is unlawful. " In the year 1795 an attack was made hy the British Government on the same branch of our neutral trade, which had nearly involved the two countries in war. That difference, however, was amicably accommodated. The pretension was withdrawn, and reparation made to the United States for the losses which they had suffered by it. It was fair to infer from that arrangement, that the commerce was deemed by the British Government lawful, and that it would not be again disturbed. " Had the Bri ish Government been resolved to contest this trade with neutrals, it was due to the charafter of the British nation that the decision should be made known to the Government of the United States. The existence of a negociation which had been invited by our Government, f t the purpose oF preventing differences by an ami- cable arrangement of their resne'live pretensions, j pave a strong claim to the notification, while it j afforded the fairest opportunity for if. But a very different policv animated the then Cabinet of Eng- land. The liberal confidence and friendly over, tnres of the United Srares were taken advantage of to ensnare them.— Steady to its purpose, and | inflexibly hostile to this counrrv, the Br tish Gn. vernment calmly looked forward to the moment, when it might give the most deadly wound to our interests. A trade just in i'self, which was secur- ed by so many s'rong and sacred pledges, was considered safe. Our ciizens with their usual in. dustry and enterprise, had embarked in it a vast proportion of their shipping, and of their capital, » hich were at sea, under no other protelion than the law of nations, and the confi fence which th » v reposed iri the justness and friendship of the British nation. At this period the unexpected blow was given. Many of our vessels were seized, carried into port and condemned by a tribunal, which, while it professes to respelt the law of nations, obeys the mandates of its own government. Hun. dreds of other vessels were driven from the ocean, and the trade itself in a gr- a- mea- n c suppress. '' The effeCl produced by ' his afack " n the law. ful commerce of the United States was such a- might have bpen expelled from a virtuous, inde. P endent and highly injured people. But one sen. ' ment pervaded the whole American nation. No ocsi interests were regarded—- no sordid motives ^ elr. Without looking to the parts which suffered most, the invasion of our righ s was considered a com mon can e, and from ope extremity of our Union to the other, was heard the voice of an united people calling " n their Government to a- venge thei wr ings, and vindicate the rights and hon > ur of the country. " From tjiis period the British Government has gone on in a continued encroachment on the rights and interests mf the U lited S ates, disreg ir. ling in its course, in many instances, obligations which have heretofore been held sacred by civilized na- tions. " In Mav, 1806, the whole coast of the conti- nent, from the Elbe to Brest inclusive, was declar. ed to be in a state of blockade. Bv this aCt, the well- established pr'nciples of the Law of Nations, principles which have served fpr ages as guides, and fixed the boundary between the rights of bel. ligerents and neu'rals, were violated. By he Law of Nations, as recognised by Great Biitiin herself, no blockade is lawful, unless it be sustained bv the application of an adequate force, and that an ade quate force was applied to this blockade, in its full extent, ought not t » be pretended. Whether Great Britain was able to maintain, legally, so ex- tensive a blockade, considering the war in which she is engaged, requiring such extensive naval oper. atons, is a question which it is not necessary at this time to e* amine. " It is sufficient to be known, that such force was riot applied, and this is evident from ' he terms of the blockade itself, by which, comparatively, an inco siderable portion of the coast only was declared to be in a state of strict and rigorous blockade. The objection to the measure is not di- minished by that circumstance. If the force was not applied, the blockade was unlawful from what, ever cause the failure might proceed. The belli- gerent who institutes the blockade cannot absolve itself from the obligation to apply the force under any pretext whatever. For a belligerent to relax a blockade, which it could not maintain, it would be a refinement in injustice not less insulting to the understanding than repugnant to the law of nations. To claim merit for the mitigation of an evil, which the party either had not the power, or found it inconvenient to inflilt, would be a new mode of encroaching on neutral rights. Your Committee ihink it just to remark that this alt ol the British Government does not appear to have been adopted in the sense in which it has been since construed. On consideration of all the cir cumstances attending this measure, and particu. larly the character of the distinguished statesman who announced it, we are persuaded that it wa> conceived in a spirit of conciliation, and intendec to lead to an accommodation of all differences be, tween the United States and Great Britain. Hi death disappoint d that hope, and the aft has sinci become applicable to other purposes. It ha- beet made by his successors a pretext for that vast sy-, tem of usurpation, which has so long oppressei and harassed our commerce. " The next alt of the British Government which claims our attention is the Orders of Council of January 7, 1807, by which neutral powers are 1 prohibited trading from one port to another of France or her allies, or any other country wiih which Great Britain might not freely trade. By ' this Order the pretension of England, heretofore claimed by every other power, to prohibit neutrals disposing of parts of their cargoes at different ports of the same enemy, is revived, and with vast ac- cumulation of injury. Every enrmy, however ereat tiie number or distant from each other, is considered r ne and the like trade, even with powers at peace wiih England, who from motives of po. licy had excluded or restrained her commerce was also prohibited. In this alt the British Go. i vernment evidently disclaimed all regard fur neu- tral rights. Aware that the measures authored by it could find no pretextan any. beliigvren- righ", none was urged. To prohibit the, sale of oar produce, consisting of. inrpce' t artie'es, at any. port of a bellig rent, not blockaded, to consider every belligerent as one, and subject neutrals to the same restnint with all, as if there was but ripe, were bold encroachments. But to restrain or in any manner interfere witli our commerce with neutral nations with whom Great Britain was at peic', and against whom she bad no justifiable cause of war, for the sole reason, that they restrained or excluded from their ports her commerce, was ut- terly incompatible with the pacific relations sub- sisting between the two countries. " We proceed to bring into view the British Orders in Council of November 11th, 1807, which superseded every other order, and consumm iti d that system of hostility on the commerce of the United States, which has been since so steadily pursued. In this order all Frapce and her allies, and every other country at war with Great B it - in, or with which she was not at war, from which the British flag was excluded, and all the colonies of her enemies were subjected to the same restrictions as if they were altually blockaded in the most strict and rigorous manner, and all trade in articles the produce and manufalture of the said countries and colonies, and the vessels engager! in if, were subjected to capture and condemnation as lawful prize. To this order certain exceptions were made, which we forbear to notice, because they were not adop'ed from neutral rights, but were dilfated by policy to promote the commerce of England, and so far as they related to neutral powers, were said to emanate from the clemency of the British Governm * n'. " It would be superfluous, in your Committee to state, that by this Order the British Govern, ment declared direct and positive war against the United States. The dominion of the ocean was completely usurped by it, all commerce forbid den, and every flag driven from it, or subjected to capture and condemnation, which did not sub- serve the policy of the British Government, by paying it a tribute, and sailing under its sanction. From this period the United States have incurred the heaviest losses and most mortifying humilia- tions. They have borne the calamities of war without retorting them on its authors. " So far your Committee has presented to the view of the House the aggressions which have been committed under the author ty of the British | government on the commerce of the United States. " We will now proceed to other wrongs which have been still more severely felt. Among these is the impressment of our seamen— a practice, which has been unceasingly miintained by Great Britain in the wars in which she has been a party since our revolution. Your Committee cannot convey in adequate terms the deep sense they en* tertain of the injustice and oppression of this pro- ceeding. Under the pretext of impressing Bri- tish seamen, our fellow- citizens are seized in Bri- tish ports, on the high seas, and in every other quarter to which the British power extends, are taken on board B ' itish men" of war, and compell- ed to serve there as British subjects. " In this mode, our citizens are wantonly snatched from their country and their families, deprived of their liberty, and doomed to an igno- minious and slavish bondage, compelled to fight the battles of a foreign country, an 1 often to pe rish in them. Our fl lg has given then no pro- tection— it has b-' en unceasingly viol ited and our vessels exposed to danger by the loss of men taken from them. Your Committee need not re- mark, that while the practice is continued, it it impossible for the United States to consider them- selves an independent nation. Every new case is a new proof of their degradation. " Its continuance is the more unjustifiable, be- cause the United States have repeatedly proposed to the British Government an arrangement which j would secure to it in the controul of its own peo- ple An exemption of the citizens of the United States from this degrading oppression and their flag from violation, is all that they have sought. This lawless w iste of our trade, and equally un- lawful impressment of our seamen, h ave been much aggravated by the insults and indignities attending them. Under the pretext of block iding the harbours of France and her allies, British squadrons have been stationed on our coast, to watch and annoy our own trade. To give effect to the blockade of European ports, the ports and harbours of the United S ates have been block til- ed. In executing these orders of the British Go- vernment, or in obeying the spirit which was known to animate it, the Command - rs of these squadrons have encroached on our jurisdiction, seized o « r vessels, and carried into effect impress- ment within our limits, and done other acts of great injustice, violence, and oppression. " The United States have seen, with mingled indignation and surprise, that these acts, inste i J of procuring to the perpetrators the punishment due to unauthorized crimes, have not failed to re- com mend them to the favour of their Government. " Whether the British Government has con- tributed by active measures to excite against us the hostility of the savage tribe on our frontiers, your Committee are not disposed to occupy much time in investigation Cer'ain indications of | general notoriety may supply the plac • of ;; u- then ic documents— though these have not been wanting to establish the fact in snm: instances. It is known that symptoms of British hostility to- wards the United States have never fai'eJ to pr ® . duce corresponding symptoms among those trih- s. " It is also well known ' hat on all s icfi occa- sions, abundant supplies ol th. j otdinary munitions of war have been a guided bv the agents of Bu- tish commercial companies, and even from Bii'i h garrisons, wherewith they were enabled to com- mence that system of savage warfare on or fron- tiers, which has been at all limes indiscriminate in its effect, on ail ages, sexes, and conditions, an.^ so revoking to humanity. BELFAST COMMERCIAL CHllOxNICLE. AMERICAN STATE PAPER, ( In continuation from first page.) " Your Committee would be much gratified, if thev could cl^ sehere the derails of Briti- h wrongs: but it is their duty to recite another aft of still j preater malignity, than any of those which have been already brought to our view. " The attempt to dismember our TTnion and j overthrow our eitrellent Constitution, by a secret mission, the objeft of whi'h was to foment dis- contests and excite inRorreflion against the consti- tuted authorities and laws of the nation, as lately disclose ' bv the agent employed in it, affords a fill! proof that there is no' bound to the hostility of the British Government towards the United States— no however nrpistifiable, which it would not commit to accomplish their ruin. This » ttempf excites the greater horror from the con. lideVation tva- ir was made while the United States and Great Britain were at peace, and an amicable seg- oeiation was dependfner between them for the accommodation of their differences, through pub- lic Ministers, regularly authorised for the pur- pose. " The United States have beheld, with unexam- pled forbearance, fhi « continued series of hostile en- emaebments on their rights and interests, in the hope, that, yielding to the force of friendly re- monstrances, often repeated, the British Govern- ment might adopt a more just policy towards them ; hut that hope no longer exists. They have also weis- hed imnar'ially the reasons which have been nroed by the Bri'ish Government in vindica- tion of these encroachments, and found in them neither justification nor apology. " The Bri'ish Government has a'leged in vin- dicafion of the Orders in Council that they were resorted to as a retaliation on France, for simitar aggression?, committed by her on our neutral trade with the British dominion*. But how has this plea been supported ? The dates of British and French aggressions are well known to the world. Their origin and progress have been marked with too wide and destruflive a waste of the property of oor fellow- citizens to have been fo'- potten. The Decee of Berlin of November 21st, 1806, was the first aggression of France in the present War. Eigh- teen months had then elapsed, after the attack made by Great Britain on our neutral trade, with the co- lonies, of France arid her allies, and six months from the date rf the proclamation of May, 1806. Even on the 7th January, 1807, the date of the first Bn. tish Order in Council, so short a term had elapsed, after the Berlin Decree, that it was hardly possiblu that the intelligence of it should have reached the United States. A retaliation which is to produce its effftf, by operating on a neutral power, ought not to be resorted to, till the neutral had jus'ified it by a culpable acquiescence in the unlawful a< 3 of the other belligerent. It ought to be delayed until after sufficient time had been allowed to the neutral to remonstrate against the measure complained of, to receive an answer, and to afl on it, which had not been done in the present instance; and when the Order of November 11 th was issued, it is well known that a Minister of France had declared to a Minister Plenipotentiary of the Uni ed States at Paris, that it was not intended that the Dccree of Berlin should, apply to the United States. " It is equally well known that no American vessel bad been condemned under It. or seizure been made, with which the British Government was acquainted. The fafls prove iocontestibly, that the measures of France, however unjustifiable in themselves, were nothing more than a pretext for those of England. And of the insufficiency of that pretext, ample proofs have already been pfforded by the British Government itself, and irt the most impressive form. " T " It is no justification of the wrongs of one power that the like weie committed by another ; nor ought the f; tf>, if true, to have been urged by either, as it could afford no proof of its love of justice, of its magnanimity, or even of its courage. It is more worthy the Government of a great na- tion to relieve than to assiil the injured. Nor can a repetition of the wrongs by another power repair the violated rights, or wounded honour of the in- jured patty. [ After enumerating various supposed afls of transgression committed by Great Britain agamst i the United States, the Report concludes the :] " Relying on the patriotism of the nation, and confidently trusting that the Lord of Hosts will fro with us to battle in a righteous cause, and crown our efforts with success, your Committee recommends an immediate appeal to arms." LONDON, Wednesday, . August 10. DEFEAT OF THE FRENCH BY THE RUS- SIANS: We can now account for the delay of the transmis- sion of French Bulletins to this country. The last received was dated on the 25th of last month. The French have had no favourable intelligence to an- nounce : Since the date of the last Bulletin, they have beeii worsted in every encounter with the Rus- sian*. On the 25th ult. they attacked B/ agration's van. jfuard, hut were repulsed with the loss of 6000 men. On the- same day they attacked the main Russian army, but were defeated with the loss of 6000 men. On the. 30th arid iilst, Oudinot attacked the Rus- sians, but was beaten with great slaughter, having 5000 killed ; tnd wdiUncM, 8000 taken prisoners, be- sides baggage and ammunition. An article from Konigsburg talks of some success gained by the Prussians at Echati, near Mittau, on the 21st ult. The above is from the Gottenburgh papers. The official accounts are of the most flattering na- ture. Prince Bragrationliaving joined the main army, the whole was retiring in the greatest order to Smo- lensky: Irt addition to Biagration's success, Gen. Barclay de Tolly had gained advantages over l) a- voust ; and Oudmot's corps having advanced beyond the Dwina, Gen. Wittgenstein " had attacked and com- pletely defeated him, and taken above 2000 ptisoneis, and driven him back above 60 miles. The following is the bulletin, dated Klejslitzki, July 31:— " Yesterday and to- day Lieutenant- Gefteral Count Wittgenstein defeated the corp.* of Marshal Oudinot, near Dwor- Jubibowa, between Polotcfi and Sebetch, The advanced guard and the reserve of Count Witt- genstein pursued th » enemy closely. A great part of the baggage of the French h, id been already taken by the Russians. " The next day he intended to pursue the enemy and after passing the Dwina with or without oppo sition from Oudinot's corps, it was his intention to turn upon M'Don ldto relieve Courland and Livonia." At the departure of the courier, the Russians had made 3000 prisonei s, and taken two pi ces of cannon, and were continuing in pursuit of the enemy. General report says, that the Marquis of Well'ng- ton is to be made a Field Ma shal. SECOND EDITION, GLOBE OFFICE. Government received this day dispatches from orn Minister at Gottenburgh. We understand they con- firm the account in the papers brought by the Got- tenburgh mail, of an action between the main French and Russian armies, in which the French were defeat- ed and driven across the Dwina. Their loss is vari- ously stated from 11,000, to 20,900 men. AMERICA. We received this morning New- York papers from the beginning of June to the 11th July, and Halifax to the 21 st. The Gleaner arrived at Halifax on the 26th July. Mr Foster arrived thereon t' • 17th. Immediately after war was declared, he demanded and received liis passports. The Cplibri arrived on the 9tb at New Yolk, before Mr Foster sailed, with dispatches from Halifax. Letters of marque have been issued,, and seve- ral captures made by " the Americans. Sixty vessels have been taken by us from them. Commodore Rogers' squadron is at sea, and its object is to attack the Jamaica homeward- bound fleet. The British are marching to attack Fort Niagara. The American Gen Hill is to attack Upper Ca- nada on the West, and Gen. Dearborne on the East. The bill introduced into the House of Representa tives for repealing, the Non- Intercourse Law, has been lost by the casting vote of the Speaker. The Trial of Bellingham is given in the New- York paper of the 9th. The consequent change in the British Cabinet was known, and it was expected the Orders in Council would be repealed. But tiiis it was thought, would not satisfy the American Go- vernment now. MEW- YORK PAPERS. NEW- YORK, JULY 8. IMPORTANT.— By the ship Atlas, Capt. Con- gar, arrived here yesterday from Ire'and, ' he 17' li- tors of the New- Tori Gazette have received a Bel- fast paper ( Tie Commercial ChronicleJ of the 27'') of May, containing London dates of the 23d. This paper states the important intelligence of a complete change in the English Administration. All the former Members had resigned, and a new Administration was to be formed of the Prince of Wales's old friends. The change in the English Administration might have led to very important consequences to us, if war had not been declared. But as it is. it. may he the means of shortening the war. The Orders in Council will no doubt be repealed; particulaily as Bonaparte, bv a decee, dated at the Palace of St. Cloud, the 28th of April, 1811, declares American vessels excepted from- the ope- ration of the Berlin and Milan Decrees, from the 1st of November, 1810. , It is said, that the late British Minister will leave this ciry on Thursday next, in a flag of truce for England, via Halifax. The United Spates frigate John Adtms, and brig Nautilus, sailed from Boston oti Sunday. SEW YORK, JULY 10. A FLAG OF TRUCE.— The English man of war brig Collibri, of 16 guns, arrived yesterdav at Sandy Hook, ten days from Halifax, with a Mes- senger and Despatches to Mr. Foster, the late British Minister. The Collibri confirms the acconnt of the aflion between our squadron and the Belvidere. The Belvidere had returned to Halifax, and the Cap- tain stated, that concluding from the attack on h> m that War was declared, he captured on his way to Halifax, the ship Fortune, of Newhuryport,; brig Malcolm, of Portland ; and brig Pickering, of Gloucester. In furtherance of that spirit of amity and con- ciliation repeatedly displayed, Admiral S iwyer ordered those ships to be discharged, and permit- ted to proceed to their ports of destination. The above mentioned atfion took place on the 23d of June, and lasted about three hours; all the squadron were in sight, but the Commodore only came near enough to engage. The Belvidere had two men killed, four severely, and IS slightly wounded. The drafts from the 10th Brigade, composing a part of the 1st regiment, detached infantry, are ordered to parade at Dyde's, this afternoon, for inspetfion. It will be recollected, that Captain. Cole, of the brig Pallas, arrived at Philadelphia on the 21 inst. informed, that on the 24th ult. he was board- ed Jay the Belvidere frigate, the Captain of which informed him, that he had an engagement with Commodore Rodgers's fleet, and that all then, could not take him. Captain C. perceived, he said, that the Belvidere was much torn to pieces, bad one killed, and the Captain and two men wounded. This, with other seemingly improba- ble ne- vs, was given by Captain Coles ; but was not given in this Gazette. The news, however, brought by the brig Pick- ering, arrived at Gloucester ( under the Boston head), makes it probable, that the Belvidere has actually been closely chased by our squadron, during which time she may have been disabled as stated by Captain Cole. A change of Ministry in England having pro- bably removed the Orders in Conr. cil, if the new Cabinet should pursue a specific policy towards th is Co untry, and evince a disposition to arrange other differences, nothing could be wanting in the United States but a consentaneous change of mea- sures to effect a compromise between the two Go- vernments, and prevent the calamities of war.— Whether a change of Ministers here is necessary to that purpose, we do not pretend to say ; but are confident that such a consummation between the two countries would be hailed with pleasure by nine- tenths of the inhabitants, of both— Colum- bian.

MAILS S1N0P- OUT LAST.. nrrir 1 Bv OONAGHAEZI 1 2 Bv DUBLIN.'. '. O Extract of a Letter from Sheffield, dated Au- gust 18, P. M.—" This d. iy our town has been in a state of confusion and riot, which has not yet ceased. Lord Milton, the Earl of Effing, ham, Messrs. Wbrtley, Parker, and Corbett, Jus. tices of the Peace, are now here. The horse sol- diers are parading the streets, and the militia are under arms. The populace have drawn up a paper, which they have called upon the fliur- dealers to sign, engaging that they will sell flour at three shillings per stone ; and threatening them if they do not, to destroy theit premises. I be- lieve most of them have complied ; and there have been some hundred stones sold at the price this afternoon, in all parts of the town. Some flour- dealers have certainly lost this day hundreds of pounds, by their being obliged to sell at reduc- ed prices. Lord Milton made a speech to the populace, and told them they must endeavour to wait until the- harvest was got in, at which they were much infuriated. The mob threw several stones at his Lordship, but the military protected him. Some of them threatened to proceed to Wentworth- house. What seems most alarming is, that every night there are meetings ol the mob in the vicinity of this town j I trust, however, all will be settled peaceably. It is now ten o'clock at night, and the town seems tolerably tranquil. — Flour of late has sold for seven shillings per stone, nearly treble to what it is sold for on or- dinary occasions." We learn that accounts have been received in town from Manchester, after the departui e of the mail, which state that a fire had broken out in that town, occasioned by some accident irom the illuminations, which had consumed several houses and property to a considerable amount. A female < f respeiS^ ble appearance dropped down and expired, in St. Clement's Church- yard, during the confusion occasioned by the illumina- tions on Wednesday night Her death it attri- buted to an alarm occasioned by the suddeq ex- plosion of a blunderbuss near her. Booth, committed of forging bank- notes, was executed ac Staffbtd on Saturday last. A most distressing occurrence took place at the time ot his execution ; the rope slipping, he fell to the ground, and many people thought that he was dead ; hut the unfortunate man got up, and fell on his knees, praying to the Almighty for mercy for his mis- deeds : the assistants then prepared the scaffold again, but, owing to a mistake, the drop remained fast when Booth gave the signal tor it to fail ; and it was not until much force had been applied, that the drop fell, when the unhappy criminal at length suffered the sentence of the law. BELFAST, Wednesday, August 26, 1812. By the London Papers of the 21st, we bare milch pleasure in noticing that the intelligence from Russia is of the most encouraging descrip- tion, ' ap. d if we may fully credit the accounts which have reached us, which, indeed, carry wi: h them a demi- official authority, the Russian army has been completely successful, having lately defeated the French, who had lost several thoustnd men. A confirmation of this important intelligence is anxiously expelled. In the preceding columns we have given co- pious extralls from American Papers, which have arrived in London to the 9th of July. They are of much importance, and coupled with the intelli- gence brought by several vessels of the Jamaica fleet arrived in Ireland, announce the seri.; us commencement of hostilities, and acquaint u3 with many particulars which indicate the disposi- tion of the American Government towards- Great Britain. The next arrivals from America will, undoubtedly, be of considerable importance ; and will probably be decisive of the question of peace or war between the two cuuotries. From the American Papers we have the Re- port of the Committee of Foreign Relations upun which the declaration of vyar was founded. IMPORANT INTELLIGENCE. On Sunday evening, the Aurora, Of Liverpool, Captain John Raynes, arrived in this port from Kingston, Jamaica.

CORK, AUG. 22— Yesterday evening the Friends, Captain Ralph, one of the homeward bound Jamaica fl^ fet, arrived iri our harbour, and has communicated the fallowing highly imrpor. tant- intelligence:— On tlje 3Ut of July, she fell in with a British squadron, consisting ofgthe Shan- non, Commodore, Brooke, ^ Eolus, Captain Lord Townsend ; Belvidera, Captain Byron,; Guier riere, Captain Pechell ; and, Africa, of 64 guns, Captain Bustard, which continued with the J. t. maica fleer, under convoy of his Majesty's ship Thetis, until the 9th ef August. The above squadron were in que< t of the American squa- dron, consisting of the President, and three other frigates, commanded by Commodore Rogers, which had sailed for the purpose, it was supposed, of intercepting the above convpy. The BritJsh'j squadron had destroyed on the coast of America, 105 sail of American merchant vessels. Captain Ralph was further informed, that the Americans have marched against Canada, and several skir- mishes had taken place.— The Friends parted company about five days ago.— Advertiser.

Amo- ig the Sjassin? events, which it is nnr nrn- '• inee to lay before .' he public, we are happv to have occasion. to mrn the attention of our readers to the successful efforts of the Bible Societies ,' a this part of the United Kingdom- A Correspond- ent enables us to state, that ' he Belfast Bra- ch of the Hibernian Bible Society continues its exertion--, and . is laboir/' nsr to form avxiliarv .. Societies, im- mediately connefled with it, and aiding its opera- tions, in the principal towns of. the Counties of Down and Antrim. On Wednesday last, a meeting, called by Cir„ ctllar Letter, w » s held in Ballymena for this pur. pose. A considerable number of the Clergvmen and Gentlemen of respeflabi'ity of all religious denomina i ns, in the town and its vicinity, at- tended. The greatest cordiality prevailed. All expressed their ardent desire to co- operate in this blessed work, and their readiness to afford their personal services and pecuniary sid to promote its success. Two Clergvmen. deputed by the Com- mittee f the Rel ast Branch, attended on the oc. casion, to assist in organizing an auxiliary Society of the above- mentioned description, in that place. The Bishop of Down and Connor being prevented from attending, was pleased, bv a letter, of which, his son, the Rev. Mr. Alexander, was- the bearer, to'express his unqualified approbation ot the de, sign of the Meeting. His Lordship, thq President of the B- lfast Branch, was appointed also to pr.-- side in this auxiliary Society. ' His sin. - he Rev. Gen'Ieman ahoi- e- mentioned, the Rev. Mr. Leslie, Cilonel M'Manus, and Peter Aiken, F. sq. were nominated Vice- Presidents; the Re/ erend Mr. Wauchope was chosen Secretar y, to be as. isted by the Rev. Mr. Stewar' ; and Doflor Patrick was chosen Treasurer, to be asssisted by Mr. Leetch. A respectable Committee, consisting of Clergy, men and Gentlemen in that town * ud neighbour- hood, was, at the same time, appointed to transaft the business of the Society. On the next dav, a meeting, fir the same pur. pose, was held in Antrim. The Earl of M. tssa- reene honoured f- e meetin? with his presence, was called to the C . air, and shewed his warm ap- probation of the grand object of 3ible Societies, by taking a lively interest in the proceedings of the day. His Lordship's views were happily se- conded by all the Clergymen and Gentlemen of the neighbourhood, who attended on the occasion. The Deputies, from the B - lfast Committee, here stated, at large, the views of that Branch, as they had before done at Ballymena. On th s occasion also, as at the former phce, an addt^ s to the fiiends of Christianity was read. This address has been published, not only to shew what successful efforts have been, already made by the pnent Society, and other Bible Societies cwinefled >'. i; h it, but. also to. point nut the neces ity of maki if encreased exertion;, especially in thi enlightened part of Ireland, to promote the grand design of sueh institutions.

We sincerely hope, that the Nobility and Gentlemen of kin h J pre. perty in the vicinities of these places, will c . unte. nance the meetings with their presence, and give to this most laudable institution, their patron ige and aid. The following circumstance is inserted as a caution to those who have the charge of children; A child about three years of age, being left in a roem, where there was a bottle with a shall quan- tity of whiskey ( supposed to be abouc a gill) emptied the spirits into a tea- cup, and continued to take small quantities, till it had sipped up the whole. It was soon after seized with a heavy- drowsiness, and towards midnight, grew so ill, that medical advice was procured. This, how- ever, was ineffectual, and the poor child died.

Spaniards is siated at two killed and lour wounded !!!'!)! BELFAST ST TIP NEWS, CLONMM,, AUG. 22— On Monday morning last, as Pierce O'Brien Butler, Esq. of Danboyne Castle, and his familyr consisting ol Mrs. Butler, and their two daughters, were proceeding on their way from Caher to Michelstown, on their road to Mallow, Mr. Butler, who was foremost in a Dogcar, with Miss Butler, was stopped within two hundred yards of Tincurry- gate, and within sight of four or five cabins ( some of whose inhabitants were looking on at the transaction), by a single footpad, armed with a blunderbuss, who demanded his money. Mr. Butler, perceiv- ing from the fellow's manner that he was no veteran in the business, parlied with him to gain time, which was the only advantage he could ex- pect as he was not armed ; when the fellow call- ed out to a colleague to' come forward ; and, on j Mr. Butler's looking round- he immediately j saw the second freebooter on the ditch, armed j also with a short blunderbuss on a rest, and : levelled it at his ( Mr. Butler's) person. ^ _ j Mr. Butler then gave the first assailant his j warch, with which he thought to satisfy him; \ and the ruffian looked and examined it, during j which his comrade saying something to him, he threw back the watch, and resolved that he would not be fobb- d off in that manner, swore vehement- ly that he would lodge the contents of the blun- derbuss in Mr. Butlet's body, unless he instantly gave up 1m money. Mr- Butler, however, escaped by giving tip! eight guinea notes, which he had, on that morning, received : n change at Caher, and which he had loose in one of his wais'coat pockets, Very luckily for himself, as he had dexterously contrived, while the robb- r was examining his watch, to slip bis pocket- book, containing nearly three hundred pounds in notes, under the cushion of the s » at. On Tuesday se'nnieht, at seven o'clock, while a fine boy, six y » ars of age, son of Mr. Robert M'Lehose, was leaning over* slight spar upon the top r, f a two story trap srair, adjoining a work shop in the neighbourhood of St. Enoch's- square, Glasgow, the soar gave war, his head pitched on the chuseway in Sr. Enoch's- lane, by which his scull was so fractured, that he died about an hour after. He was not five minutes out of his mother's sight before he m- t with the fatal fall. She heard the noise, and was lamenting over the sore heart that the mother would get, supposing that a child had fallen from a window in the lane ; but her agitation may be easier conceived than described, when she discovered that it was her own child.

( 8: il CURE - FOR THE BITE or A MAD Doe.— The fo'low inp is r commend d by Dr. D' M meta, formerlv Physician In Ordinary to his Polish Ma- jesty ; The DoCor advises to ever the w nnd vri h fresh ear'b, or wi/ h snuff, to imbibe the saliva of the animal, and to wash it with water. At the same time, warm half a pound of butter, in four times as much vinegar, aod when the wound is cleared, apply a compress of linen steeped in that mixture, and moisten it very often with the same for nine days, af er which you may safely remove the compress, and cure the wound in the usual way. During the time the vinegar is used out- wardly the patient must take it internally four times a day, in doses of sn ounce and one half of v: negar, warmed, with a little fresh butter; and his common drink, for at least 15 days, must be ' pure water, with a little vinegar and juice of cit- ron. Strong liquor is extremely hurtful, as is any emotion of anger or impatience. Phlethoric pa- tients may be blooded.

The following is given ill the DubFin Evening Post, as the Speech of the Master of the Rolls, at the late public dinner given by the Catholic Gen- trv of Dublin, to the Bishop of Norwich, as de- tailed in the Chronicle of Monday : The Ma- ter of the Rolls ( Right Hon. J. P. CURRAN) began his address to the Nob » e Chair, man and the Company, by expressing his thanks for an invitation which gave him an opportunity of beholding the delicious sight which this day's Meeting presented to his mind. He thanked God, that he had lived to see it— to see venerable Pre lates, the difference of whose Sefts was lost in the identity of their Religion, assemble there, as the Shf pherds of their respective Flocks, obeying the spirit of their sacred missions, of diffusing benevo- lence among men, and, instead of diffusing their precepts or examples, in different Churches, or to separa'e Se& s, collecting their willing Flocks into one fold, into one congregation, and giving the force of their united authority in favour of soc al affeflion and benevolence, and exciti* g them to an ardent obedience of that awful injunction, by which, as Brothers, we are commanded to love all the Children of our Common Fa'her, by cnltivat. ' ing peace and good will among men. To this spirit of union and benevolence, he said, we are indebted for our progress in the Cause of Civil Liberty ; and. he said, he was more inclined to call it a completion than a progress; because he considered its ultimate success, as wanting nothing more than the mere forms and ceremonies of com- pletion. He said, it was with a rapture which he cowld not express that he marked the process by which we had attained so rapid a maturity in that public virtue, without which no nation can have a community of interest, or any fixed basis of social and practical morality, or be any other than a wretched horde, wicked and divided, and weak and contemptible, and expiating the guilt of their malevolence and folly, by those sufferings which the God of Nature has d' creed, should be the phy- sical consequences of such crimes. But the crimes have ceased, and the punishment has ceased with the guilt. The Protestant takes his Catholic Bro. ther by the hand— they feel they cannot have but one common interest; round the standard of that interest they rally— and they feel their union to be irresistible. He was peculiarly forceable in displaying the merit of his Protestant Brethren, in their noble dismissal of every prejudice; and their ardent adoption of the Common Cause. He was equally ardent in his praise of the manly and dignified gratitude of his Catholic Brethten. And what he said upon this vital subject, was received with the most enthusiastic expressions from alL sides of the company. It was to this union, which must set their hearts at ease as to ultimate success, that he must ascribe the temper, prudence, and modera- tion, by which we had arrived at our present po- sition, and without which we might have despaired of ultimate success. He had not hoped, he said, for such temper ; but it was with peculiar delight he felt himself bound to thank them for it." They knew, he said, it had always been his habit to blame, or to commend, with equal candour. I well know, said he, the promptness of the Irish charadter; if you had dissented from my blame, I know you would have given battle { perhaps I might smile at your peevishness: convinced as I would be, that it could have been only an hectic, which could have no continuance towards a man, to whom you knew you are deeply and tenderly dear : these things whenever they happen, ate but the curls upon the surface ef affeftion, which, per- haps, keep it from stagnating. Bat here, he said, I see nothing to blame, nothing to'regret; every reason to commend, every cause to congratulate ; I command your perseverance ; I commend the mode and the stile of your Petition— I am grate- ful to the absent advocates of our cause— I cannot say that I am so grateful to our illustrious Re- presentative, who has reported nothing but our actual success, and seems to have forgotten every exploit of his own, which contributed to our tri- umph.—( Here enthusiasm of applause. J I am delighted, said he, to see that there are materials in our excellent Friends for many a fu. ture tough campaign ; but his viflory in the last, has, I trust, superseded the labour of the future. I am glad to think, he need not any more press his brow with a helmet; but that he will leave it to me to adjust the laurel on his head ; and listen while his Country tells how he has earned it.— ( Here repeated acclamation.) — T said, continued he, that your race s finished. Look at the fact,' see if I am over sanguine— you have had a vote of th° Commons, which, unHer the circumstances, I should almost call unanimous. You have had a success in the Lards which I call nearly equal.— And here, said he, let me retra^ the regret with which I silently observed the late prosecution— Their consequences have been most beneficial to us. I wotild be grateful to their authors, if I could give them the credit of foreseeing those con- sequence!!. Nations are ever slow and indolent in viewing the condition or the sufferings of other countries. Nothing but a forcible combination of circumstances, appealing to their hearts, and strik- ing their imaginations, can rouse them from this torpor, and kindle them into curiosity and symoa- thy. T hese prosecutions have done this; for they have exhibited to the view of England a snectaele of charity, of justice, and of indignation t for they have exhibited the picture of a P titioner modestly and feelingly complaining of unjust affliction, and, instead of being courteously and softly received, thrust in among the malefactors of the dock— an. swered only by a criminal indictment, and called upon to account for the audacity of daring to bleed, when he was stabbed to the heart. This melan- choly speftacle did produce an impression upon the judgment of England. Angrily, as I may sometimes have felt towards her for her treatment of us, I have never refused to acknowledge her virtues— she is peculiarly alive to suffering, and indignant at oppression. This oppression forced her upon the discussion of our Question. She could not but ask, were the restraints and the ex- clusions of Ireland founded in justice ? Cou'd any principle of justice be found to warrant the inflic- tion of punishment without crime— that could war- rant an eternal condemnation of an innocent pen. pie to growth without health, and to blossom with- out fruit ? To look at it was to feel it— it was look- ed at, and felt, and the hesrt of the spectator re- volted at the odious exhibition of barbarity and folly; but it served farther— it put them upon in- quiring into the characters of our Catholic Clergy — and the result was, what it could not fail to be, that they were learned, and modest, and pious, and indefatigable in the discharge of their sacred func- tions—( Loud cries of Hear, hear, from the Protestant side of the Assembly.)— They would next ask a most important question: Was this oppression gra'eful — was it approved by the mafice or folly of Pro- testant Ireland ? Solemnly and unequivocally did we answer that question. But upon this topic, perhaps, it becomes proper in us to be reserved— — Loud and repeated cheerings.)— Grateful to me are these expressions of feeling, but perhaps they are leading me too far—( No, no, no, from all sides)— Then I will trespass upon you a little longer.— It started still another question to our English fellow- subjects: was this the moment in which it was wise to keep Ireland in goal ? Could shef> rm any rational hope of escape from her present di - ficultigs, without that energy of co- operation which the heart only can give to the arm, and which it never gives where there is not a perfect communi- ty and identity of interest in the conflict. But the English nation would not stop here— the mass of mankind are conscious that they are not adequate to laborious research or complicated discussion. They, therefore, naturally resort to the authority of those who are . wiser than themselves— they would naturally resort to the opinions of the illus- trious living and the illustrious dead— of those who could not be debauched to profess, or deceived to entertain any opinion that was not founded in truth. And, upon which of those grounds could they suspeft the opinion of Mr. Pit, who, by the bye, never loved Ireland, and was never loved by it. Upon what ground could they Mjspeft the dpinion of that super- eminent being, from whom death could not take away immortality, Charles James Fox ?— Of the exalted representative of his talents artd his virtues, Lord Holland— of the emi- nently learned and eloquent Royal Duke, ( Sussex) whose defence of us would rather seem to come from the labour of years in a cloister, than of in- tervals snatched from the gaieties of a Court— of the high spirit of Lord Grey— of Lord Grenville— of our countryman Lord Wellesley, so highly and justly honoured— of the sosuperiorlytalenred Lord Erskine— of the unbending integrity and force of Mr. Whitbread—- of our own Mr. Sheridan— of so many other splendid protectors of our claims i I thought to be silent as to our illustrious and vener- able Guest— but why should I defraud our cause of so much glory, by being silent ?— No doubt, it may be suspected that he was courting popularity and favour with the Minister, or with the odious prejudice which that Minister was cultivating. For my own part, though I have become rather suspi- cious of mankind, I do not think it likely, that a man of the great talents and high attainments of our venerable Guest did really imagine, that the line he had taken was the nearest road to Canter- bury— ILoud and continued eheerings of gratitude, and respect, andadmiratitn.] — But, continued his Honor, I have not yet mentioned the name which I was dfelighted to sae you were on the tip- toe of expect- ing, and which, in whatever order it might, be men- tioned, you had, in your own minds, placed in its natural station, at the head of the list— the beloved Child of Ireland'.— the ornament, and consoler, and the intrepid defender of his Country— the Scholar of the Camp— the Philosopher of the Senate— the exalted devotee of that high and unparlying honor that will bend to no consideration of life or death, or country, or even of fame— that man, who, of all others, most distinctly sees into your character, your ardent, generous— do not be angry wish me— your tender and excitable sensibility— your feather springed disposability to affectionate and momen- tary jealousy, whieh evaporates in the breath that expresses it. He knows it well— he loves you for it— he knows the rapid contrition of its recoil, but he ought not to be wounded, nor you humiliated, by any formed ceremonial of that contrition—( Loud and continued applause. J— But, Gentlemen, 1 find I am not so bad a painter as I thought; you have made it unnecessary for me to put the name over the picture—( Reiterated cheers.)— May I be per- mitted to add, that although I have not been alto- gether unhonoured by some condescending notice from that illustrious and noble person, yet, I am too proud to be swayed by any feeling, which, if merely personal, must be despicable in my mind ; and that it could not add a single pulsation to that energy of affeflion and respedt, with which my hoar* c- lings to him, as an Irishman.—( Reiterated cheering.) My Lord, I ht" e mentioned a few, and a few only of the names of our friends and protectors. In the acquisition and justification of ' hose srene « rous protetor:, I do not dwell upon the share yon have had in your indefatigable zeal, in the inflexible firmness of vour moderation, and in the powerful attestation which your character gave to vour cause. You are present, and I forbear— I leave th » theme to your country— that country will never fail to express its feeling—( Enthusiastic applause.)— T see, my Lord, you are afraid that I may be led by a natural transition, from the list of your friends, to the list of your enemies. Rut I catch the hint of y > ur delicacy, and 1 will not name a set of noor creatures, whom nature des- tined to be anonymous.—( Loud cheering.)— They have committed no crime— they have deceived no exnecta'ion—. they have abused no talent— the Grand Inquest of the Empire has pronounced a verdict upon them of incomretencv. If they should be visited by a lucid interval, I wish them to be. reformed— if they are afraid of prosecution, I will consent to their dwindling into our ranks, and finding safety, by being invisible, an ) being con- cealed in a place where knaves and fools are not likely to be sought for—[ applause)— as to their opinions, let me just add, there can be no guilt— they have ho opinions of their own— they are wooden handles, into which any blade may be in- serted— they are induced into the cant and no- tions of their department, as they are into the desks and stools of their offices, and there let us leave them.—( Loud and repeated cheering.)— My Lord, I yield for a moment to the attention of a more alluring consideration, and that is, that the clnuds *> hich had been wickedly cast upon the two countries, in each others eyes, are clearing fast— we see ea'h other as we are— England has been often accused of fanaticism— I think the late transactions have perfectly refuted the charg"— for myself, I never believed it— it is to be found only in the coldness, and darkness, and dulness of human intellect— it like that celebrated poison of antiquity, which could be contained only in the hoof of an ass. Man may be dosed and drugg'd in o fanaticism— but no practical vice is born with any mtn. I have heard it said, for instance, that even in this ahstemious cbuntry, some few instances have occurred in which the brain of a very worthy person has been rather unstea lied by the ungrate- ful conduct of the beverage he loved. But I never heard a single instance of any honourable Irish Gentleman being born drunk.—( Loud and repeated applause.) I have stated, continued he, some of the gr un ^ s of my confidence of success. The wisdom of Par- liament cannot pass over the privations we have submitted to, and cheerfully submitted to. A few years ago we counted the millions of our debts by units. We now count them by hundreds. A few years ago we were taxed hecause we consum- ed. We are now obliged to relinquish consump- tion in order that we may not be taxed— so thit he tax- gather is takin? from the roots of the revenue, the only soil in which it can continue to grow. The consequence is, a paper cur- ency multiplying into annihilation— as in the human sys'em, the consequence of relaxation is the dissolution of blood into water j so is the dropsy of finance the melting of the solid circulating medium into rags and paper. In both cases, the accumulation is death— but notwithstanding the severity of these privations, having, as I am satisfied we shall im- mediately have, a community of cause and of in- terest, it is oursicred and bounden duty manfully and undauntedly to persevere to the last gasp, be- cause in our present contest with the avowed dis- turber of human repo- e, we sh- uld infinitely pre- fer to perish than to fail— because it is a conflict" between law and force— between the shield and the sword— between the alphabet and the bayonet — between liberty and chains [ Peals of applause. 3 These are, my Lord, topics which cannot escape, and which, I think, have already influenced the wisdom of the two Houses of Parliament, and will, I doubt not, ascend to a higher quarter, where we have placed a fond and firm reliance, that no temporary circumstance Can dissolve. My Lord spd Gentlemen, your patience ought to have been long since exhausted j but far is this awful subject from being so. There were other matters, which I would have presumed to suggest, but—( Hear, hear, proceed.) No, Gentlemen, I cannot longer trespass— I cannot. [ Here he sat down."] 1319, and continued by a^ i" » nrnmfnts to the 13th ' Voril following, Lieut. Lewis A opsins, of the 25' h regiment of foot, was arraigned upon the undermentioned charges, v\ z.— 1st For scandalous and infamous co- idu51, uobeco- nin-* the chara& er of an Offic- r and a Gehtlemin. in false'y and ma. liciouslv asserting to Captain Hylron, of the K5th regiment, at Mem, in Portugil, on or about the 1st of Jun3, 1S11, that he ( Lieutenant Lewis Appeliu ) had pulled Major Mein of the same regiment, by the nose, and taken his ( Lieutenant Appelius's) feet fr » m the Hndibrastic seat of honour; or Words to that efFefl, and if Major M- in had added that to the charge which he had given in against him ( Lieutenant Appelius) on or about December last, meaning 1810, it would have been nothing but the truth 2d. In falsely and maliciously propagat'ng and asserting between the 12th and 24th of June, 1811, to the Officers of the 85th regiment, then serving in Portugal, that he ( I, ieut. Aopelius) had pu'led Major Mein by the nose, and taken bis ( Lieut. Apoelius's) feet from the Hndihrastic seat of honour, or words to that effefl ; and further falsely and ma- liciouslv propagating and re- asserting the same calumny be- tween the 8th of August, and 7th September, 1811, to re- Til of the Officers of the five companies of the 85th regi- ment, then under the command of Major Mein, at the regi- mental depot at Hailsham or Silverhill; the above expres- sions and assertions being ah » oIutely false, and greatly to the prejudice and dishonour of Major Mein's chara& er, both as an Officer and a Gentleman, and highly subversive of good • rder and military discipline, and in breach of the Articles of War. Upon which charges the Court came to the following decision :— " The Court having maturely and attentively weighed and considered the evidence adduced in support of the Prosecution, together with what the Prisoner, Lieutenant Lewis Appelius has of- fered in his defence, is of opinion relative to the first charge, that the Prisoner is guilty of the same." " With regard to the second charge, the Court is of opinion that the prisoner is not guilty of the whole or either part thereof, and doth therefore I acquit him of the same." " The Court in consideration of having found the Prisoner guilty of the scandalous and infa-; mous condut, as contained in the first charge, such being a breach of the Articles of War, doth therefore sentence him to be dismissed his Majes- ty's service." " The Court at the same time that it acquits ' the prisoner of the second charge, deems it a duty, in justice to Major Mein's character, to state, that in the course of the trial several circumstances have transpired, fully sufficient in the opinion of the Court, to exonerate Major Mein from any im- putation of being actuated by any illiberal or im- proper • motive in preferring the second charge. " The Court is induced to notice, as a mark of its approbation, the firm and clear manner in which Captain Glew delivered his evidence on a subject to him of the utmost delicacy, and which the Court with reluctance found necessary to in- vestigate. " The Court further feels itself bound to ex- press its severest animadversion on the evasive and reluctant manner in which the testimony of Capt, Hylton was given, and the difficulty the Court experienced in extorting from Captain Hylton that information, which the Court had such strong pre- sumption for supposing him in possess}' n of, and which it was too evident his desire and endeavour to withhold." His Royal Highness the Prince Regent has been pleased, in the name and on the behalf of his Majesty,| jto approve and confirm the finding an! sentence of the Court; and the Commander in Chief directs that the foregoing charges prefer- red against Lieutenant Appelius, of the 85th regi- ment of foot, together with the finding and sen- tence of the Court, shall be read at the head of every corps, and entered in the General Order Book. By command of his Royal Highness the Com- mander in Ciiief. COURTS'- M RTIAL. , HOUSE- GUARDS, JULY 25.—— At a Genera! Court. Martial held at Chester, on the 21st April, 1812, and continued by adjournmen s to the 23d of the same month. Lieutenant William Nash, of the Royal North Lincoln Militia, was arraigned upon the undetmentioned charge, viz.:— For scandalous and infamous behaviour, unbecoming the character of an Officer and a Gentleman, in calumniously circulating a report at Chester in or about the month of July, and in or about the month'of December, 1811, preju- dicial to the honour, character, and reputation of Adjutant Gibbon Cullen, of the same regiment, by falsely stating to several person", that Adjutant Cullen had been brought be fore the halbrrts, and there stripped to be punished for theft, thereby tending to deprive the said Adjutant Gibbon Cullen of that, influence, authority, and command, necessary to the discharge of his duty as an Officer in his Majesty s service. Upon which charge the Court came to the fol- lowing decision:— " The Court- Martial after the most attentive consideration of ' he evidence produced in support of the charge against Lieutenant William Nash, of the Royal North Lincoln Regiment of Militia, and of the Prisoner's defence, are of opinion, that he is guilty of the crime laid to his charge, and they do sentence him, the said Lieutenant William Nash, to be dismissed from the regiment." His Royal Highness the Prince Regent was pleased, in the name and on the behalf of his Ma- jesty, to approve and confirm the finding and sen- tence of the Court, and the Commander in Chief diietts, that the charge preferred against Lieute. nant William Nash, together with the finding and sentence of the Court, shall be read at the head of every cerps and entered in the General Order Book By command of his Royal Highness the Commander- in- Chief. HORSE- GUARDS, AUG. 3.— At a General Court Martial, held at Hythe, on the 23d of March, Thursday last a Court- Martial was held on Lieutenant Thomas Bradish, for absenting him- self without leave from his Majesty's sloop Ty- rian, in November, 1810. He was sentenced to be dismissed the service. The circumstances which brought on his trial we understand were, that being absent from the Tyrian several days without leave, Captain Davies reported his con- duct to the Admiralty, and he was superseded Soon after he presented Memorials to the Admi. ralty, to be reinstated in his rank, which were not attended to, and he entered on board a West In- diaman, out of which he was impressed by Cap- tain Kerr, of the Wolverine, and during the per- formance of his duty on board that ship, for some offence he was flogged : soon afterward his con- duct called for a repetition of such punishment, and be then stayed the proceedings, by declaring to Captain Kerr, he was a Lieutenant, and that he would undergo the ordeal of a Court- Martial upon his conduct, the result of which we have stated.
