WHITBREAD Has published a long address to the Electors of the Borough of Bedford. In this address he brings under their review some of the most interesting pro- ceedings of the late Parliament, and states his opinion respecting many of the most important subj - cts con- nected with the present state of the country. We select the following as containing the most prominent features in this address :— Five years have elapsed since I had the honour to address you last, as Candidate for your Representa- tion ; and we are still at war. The calamity of war is more widely extended, and has reached the great American continent In the interval, Austria has again been in conflict with France. She has again been subdued ; and is now her Ally, ii a war in which they are jointly en gaged against Russia, Upon the Peninsula, events have taken place which have exceeded the most sanguine expectations. By the consummate genius of our Commander, and the irresistible valour of our troops, feats h ive been per- formed which shrink not from any historical compa- rison whatever. They have exalted the name of England, great as it was, in arms ; and if used with wisdom, whilst in their bloom, may establish the real independence of Spain, and procure repose to the woi Id. ! If the victory of Salamanca has raised a belief in the minds of those by whose counsels we are govern- ed, that the French will be forcibly expelled from Spain, such belief I cannot but consider as without solid ground. America is added to the list of our enemi.' s, and is waging open war against nir- which I deem the hea- viest of all the calamities that have befallen this coun- try. This new war has been produced by a system of commercial policy to which the late House of Commons lent its full support in its commencement; upheld in its progress ; and abandoned when, as it. has unhappily proved, it was too lute for such a step to produce its effect. That system was opposed by myself, and others much more powerful than me. We made repeated attempts to end it- Its effects were foreseen and fore- told. Our efforts were thwarted, and our specula- tions were treated with scorn, by the same H° » se of Commons which yielded, when too late, to tile irre- sistible evidence of that dreadful scene of internal dis- tress, which it would not contemplate or believe, t:! l it was laid bare to the whole world, and had produ- ced a tardy and reluctant conviction upon its authors and abettors. The Parliament which preceded the last was dis- solved, because a disposition had been manifested in the House of Commons of that, day to those of our fellow subjects professing the Roman Catholic reli- gion, who devote their lives for their country, in our fleets and armies. You remember the hideous outcry that was raised during the election of the new Members ; equally disgraceful to those who excited it, and to the Church, of which it piofcssed the guardianship. The House of Commons, immediately upon its meeting, and repeatedly afterwards, rejected the peti tions of the Roman Catholics with disdain : but it has not been dissolved without abjuring its pernicious er- ror, by resolving, early in the next session, to take into consideration the claims of the Roman Catholics of Ireland. It did more, by passing the act, chap 15S, of the last session, entitled, an act, " t « repeal certain acts and amend other acts relating to religious worship and assemblies, and persons preachino- or teaching therein," it gave practical proof of the rapid strides it had taken in a space inconceivably short for such an effect to be produced, and jr: ive happy omen • of the blessedness to be expected from the termination of all religious disability and persecution. It rests with the electors of the United Kingdom to take what care they can, that the design, the reso- lution, and manifest intention of the late House of Commons, on these points, shill not be dlsapDointed. The subject of the currency of the realm forced it- self upon the attention of the House. It w is fully aftd ably discussed ; and after the discussion it was resolved, upon the motion of the present Chancellor of the Exchequer ; " That bank notes are in public estimation equal in value to gold." How far the Chancellor of the Exchequer was jus t ified in proposing, or the House in adopting such a esolution, every one of the public is fully capable of deciding. But it is remarkable that in the same ses sion the same House of Commons concurred in a law, making it highly penal to act in contradiction to that opinion, and to part with paper for gold at a price lower than its nominal value. A vain attempt to ar- rest the flight of gold from a country inundated with paper; a repetition of the folly so often exposed and exploded in the conduct of all the weak and despotic Governments of Europe. That law was continued and is now in force ; others have been superadded, which will exterminate the only remaining medium of metallic circulation, in most parts of the country, by making local tokens illegal after the 25th day of March next. That the late House did not condemn the univer- sally reprobated convention of Cintra ; that it justified and applauded the atrocious and impolitic attack upon Copenhagen, with the robbery of its ships and arse- nals ; and that it commended the expedition to Wa|. cheren, are matter of history not to be forgotten ; but in this age, great events press with such rapidity up- on us, that they cannot be dwelt upon beyond the term of their own operation, although in their conse- qucnces they are deeply felt. I have thought it expedient to make this state- ment of my view of tile general situation of the coun- try, at a period when it is morally impossible things should rest in their present state. The effects of enormous foreigB- expeditiire, accom- panied by a depreciation of the paper currency of a kingdom, added to the stoppage of its manufactures, and a stagnation of its trade, are too well known. My wish, then, is, that an earnest endeavour should now be made to accomplish a general pacific ition. The time appears to me to be very favourable to a direct manly open proceeding of that nature', I de- plore the sad effects of long- protracted war. I see nothing formidable in peace. Its accomplishment may be beyond our reach; but till it has been proved to me to be so, I shall not believe it; and I am sure it would be prudent and proper to make the attempt. I cannot make up my mind to that state of national desperation, the consequense of war carried on with out the hope or prospect of its termination ; without full proof of its indispensible necessity. He who attempts to give the slightest sketch of the events which have taken place during the existence of the last Parliament, cannot omit the mention* of thai extraordinary and atrocious crime which in a moment closed the career of the first Minister of the Crown, deprived his family of its dearest treasure, and so- ciety of one of its most amiable and valuable Mem- . bers. I was present in attendance upon my duty in the House of Commons when that foul murder was per- petrated upon Mr Perceval. I had been constantly opposed to him. I had always condemned the mode by which he had acquired power, and his us.; of it when acquired. But the sensations I then ex- perienced proved to me that I had not deceived my- self in supposing it was sense of public'duty, not ani- mosity or envy towards any man which had actuate. 1 my public conduct. I deeply regret his untimely eixJ. My op: nioii of the measures of his administration re- mains unchanged. It has afforded one of the most Striking examples upon record of the instability of human affairs, and the insecurity of human life irt pit cs of th>; greatest appa- rent safety, to persons the best formed to attach frien is and to conciliate the regard of opponents. BELFAST' COMMERCIAL CHRONICLE. If . OX TrV, Friday, October 2. • FURTHER SUCCESS OF THE MARQUIS OF WELLINGTON. We received this morning Corunna Papers to the 23d nit. and the intelligence contained in them,' if true, will be received with the greatest satisfaction. The Marquis of Wellington's dispatch of the 13th left him at Torquemada, though his army was in ad- vance on the Burgos road. The Corunna Papers state, that his Lordship had come up with and rout- ed Gen. Foy's rear guard, taking 3000 infantry, 700 Cavalry, cannon, baggage, & r. There is great pro- bability in this account. The enemy, who were in Torquemada the dav before we entered it, were not more than two leagues from us on the 13th. No official advices of this action with Foy have been re- ceived by Government. The Alfred, with the 1.500 Guards, arrived at Coruuna on the 24th ult. which is two days later than the Corunna papers. The Captain of the Alfred mentions nothing of the success over Fov. But ano- ther officer says, that on this loth Lord Wellington was within 9 leagues of Burgos ; that Castanos and Santocildes, with the whole army, were about three leagues in his rear. The news of this success over Foy may therefore be correct, provided the date of the affair is subsequent to the 15th. Fortifications are erecting at Ii un by the enemy tcr secure their retreat. The evacuation of Bilboa on the 8ch ult. by the enemy, is already known. Paris Papers have arrived to the 27th ult. and though the battle before Mojaisk had been foutrht 20 days before, no bulletin has yet been published— though it was supposed to be on the road— not that we have the least doubt of a battle having been fought, or of the Russians having retired from Mojaisk.— But we still\ rust it will be found that they retired as they did from Smolensk ; and we are more inclined to be of this opinion from the circumstance of Bo- naparte's head- quarters not being at Mojaisk, as the Paris Papers inform us till the morning of the 9th.— Had ths Russians been utterly routed and forced to retreat in disorder, Bonaparte would have been at Mojaisk sooner than two days after the battle. One of the minor, Paris papers gives some particu- lars— it says, that the whole of the Russian army was engaged ; that the Russian Impe/ ial Guards suffer- ed severely; that the French Imperial Guard did not fire a shot; that t NO of its Generals Were wounded who commanded divisions of the line; that the Russians suffered an enormou3 loss in killed and wounded, and that a great number of cannon were taken ; that the French advanced- guard were within 15 leagues of Moscow. We are sorry to learn from an article under the head of Venice, that the plague had been introduced into the isle of Lissa, in the Adriatic. ^ The yellow fever has lately made its appearance at Gibraltar and C. uthagena. A fleet of 168 merchantmen, under convoy of H. M. S. Minerva, have arrived safe from Quebec aftei a passage of 31 days. The enemy left behind them, in the lines at Cadiz, full 500 pieces of cannon GOTTENBURGH MAIL, { OoiTENnuRf- H, SEPT. 21 The Royal Family have left Stockholm for Malmoe ; it is expected ' his Royal Highness the Crown Prince will take Gortenburgh in his route, where he will arrive on Sunday or Monday next. About 1500 men arrived here yesterday and to- day, and 4000 more are expected to- morrow. The whole of the 7000 men which are to em- bark here, will certainly arrive on Wednedsday, and on Thursday morning a grand review of the whole corps will take place, after which they will immediately embark. PO8EPT, SEPT. 7.— We every instant receive fresh details of the affair at Smolensk, and the victorious strps of the Grand Army. In the hattles of Smolensk and Valentina, the Russians lost from 20 to 30,000 men, about 20 Generals killed, wounded, or prisoners, as well as a great samber of Officers.— AbeV. lt du Nurd, September 11. The following no. ice has been issued by the Board of Trade:—" Verdigris and antimony are rot allowed ro be imported in future from France, and are specially excepted in the licences now granted by the Lords of Trade." On Tuesday last a public dinner took place at nn encampment in a field, near Great George's- street, Liverpool, where 2000 sat down ( 1500 of the party were eleflors in the interest of Brougham and Creevey.) They were addressed after dinner with great energy, by Mr. W. S. Roscoe and Mr. Casey, who were cheered throughout by the ar- dent acclamations of the meeting. We hope in a few days to give a detailed report of this very im- portant and interesting proceeding. ' — - jja1 Yesterday, about 11 o'clock, the Queen, and the Prince Regent, accompanied by the Princess Charlotte of Wales, the Princesses, the Duchess of Brunswick ; the Dukes of York, Clarence, and Sussex, attended by Colonels Congreve and Bloomfield, & c. & c. went to seethe New Theatre of Drury- lane. The Royal Party went in 5 car- riages. The Prince Regent, as representing his Majesty in the first The Queen in the second, with the Princesses.— In the third was the Prin- cess Charlotte In the fourth the Duchess of Brunswick : and in the fifth, the Royal Dukes. The carriages passed through the S'rand and up Catherine- street, and drew up at the grand en- trance of the Theatre in Brydges- street, where a carpet was laid from the cai riagt s into the Theatre. The Piince Regent h *> ; ed cut his Royal Mother, and the Royal Dukes did the same polite rffice for the Princess Charlotte and the rest of the Royal Females. In the hall the Royal Party was received by Mr. Wyatt, the Architect: Messrs. Arnold and Raymond, tbe Managers; Mr. Ward, the Secretary ; and other chief Conductors of the building, Trustees of the Funds, Members of the Committee, and chief Officers of the Theatre, aud condufted over the stage, and through the principal apartments, with vliich the Royal Party expressed themselves highly gratified. After inspecting eveiy thing worthy of parti- cular . notice, . the Royal Party returned to their carriages in die saiae order. They were saluted both on their coming and at their departure wrh rej-* • -.- d ilicuis of applause by a vast concourse ot speflators assembled on the occasion. A party of the military attended to prevent the crowd from accumulating so as to impede the pas- sage of the Roval Party to and from their ca - j riages, by pressing too eagerly to ob'ain a view of ; them. Townshend also attended with a detach- ment of subordinates from Bow- street; but every thing passed off with the greatest good order. The visit did not last more than an hour, her Ma- j jesty, we understand, being apprehensive of re- maining too long in so new a building. A Cadiz Paper contains the following para- ( trraph :—" It is said that Bonoparte has ordered , Godoy to be placed under arrest at Turin, and that the residence of Charles IV. and his f rmily is fixed at Avignon. The cause of this arrangement it said to have been sftme conversation held by certain inhabitants of Marseilles In favour of the Bourbons." ENGLISH AGRICULTURAL REPORT. No harvest for many years has been better se- - cured, or more produflive. The dry warm wea- ther, through the whole of last month, has greatly fecilitated the labours of the field. The new , wheats yield well, and the grain is of prime qua- lity, full of farina, and covered with a thin skin, and consequently produces a very small portion of bran, when compared with the wheat of last year. Barley has risen heavy to the cart, considering the great bulk of straw. The corn is of a strong malting quality, but not so fine on the skin as in some preceding years. It handles warm, but ra- ther rough in the feel. The yield to tbe acre is expefted to be more than an average crop. Oats are of a strong quality, and great yield, i Beans, peas, and the whole of the liguminous tribe, are of prime quality, perfeffly free from the grub, and contain but a very small proportion of' abortive kinds, from which they will be more pro. duflive than for many years. The straw is large, End being well harvested, will produce a large store of winter food for the farm- yard. The lattermath clovers have headed well, and promise a good crop of seed, if the weather con- tinues favourable. STATE OF THE BRITISH NAVY.

PROCLAMATION ^ OK A PARLIAMENT BY KING JAMES THE FIRST- Though somewhat uncouth in point of lan- guage, according to the words used in those days, is nevertheless of substantial importance, and may not he unworthy of publicity. The authority given for it is Lord Bacon's works, 3 vols. 4' o. 387. 388. The Proclamation is stated in the fol- lowing words :— " Because the true and ancient institution i f Parliament, do require the Lower House, at this time, if ever, to be compounded of the gravest, ablest, and worthiest members that may be found ; we do hereby, out of the care of the common good, wheroi- j themselves are participant, without all prejudice to the freedom of elections, admonish all otir loving subjetf s, that have votes in the election of Knights and Burgesses, of these few points fol- lowing : " That they cast their eyes upon the worthiest men of all sorts, Knights and Gentlemen, that are lights and guides in their countries,, experienced Parliament men, wise and discreet statesmen, that have been praflised in public affairs, whether at home or abroad, grave and eminent lawyers, sub. stantial citizens and burgesses, and generally such as are interested and have portion in the estate. " Secondly, That they make choice of such as are well nffeffed in religion, without declining ei- ther on the one hand to blindness and superstition, or on the other hand to schism or turbulent dis- position. " Thirdly, and lastly, That they be truly sensi bTe, riot to ciisvalue or disparage the House with bankrupts and necessitous persons, that may de- sire long Parliaments only for proteiftion ; lawyers of mean account and estimation ; young men that are not ripe for grave consultations; mean depen- dants upon great persons, that may be thought to have their voices under command ; and such like obscure and inferior persons: so that to conclude, we may have the comfort to see before us the very face of a sufficient and well. composed House, such as may be worthy to be a representative of a third estate of our kingdom, fit to nourish a loving and comfortable meeting between us and our people, and fit to be a n > ble instrument under the blessing of Almighty God, and our princely care and- power, and with the loving conjumffion of our Pre- lates and Peeis, for the settling so great affairs," as the proper objqftsof Parliament. A Mail from Gottenburgh arrived this morning. About 1500 Swedish troops anived there on the ' 20th and 2Jst, and 4000 were to arrive on the 22d ; the whole of the troops to embark from Gottenburg, would embark on the 24th or 25th. DUBLIN, OCTOBIR 3. MR. SADLER.— At length, af. er the Public suf- fering such anxiety for this celebrated Aeronaut, i we have at length tbe gratification to announce his safe arrival yesterday evening, at five o'clock, in the Holyhead Packet, at Skeiries.— As an account of bis voyage, with every particular, will be pub- j 1 shed in a tew days, we shall content ourselves by observing, that from his leaving Dublin, he passed in a N. E. direitiou to the Isle of Man, but was then blown over 10 the Welsh coast, when he pass- tu over to ths nouh part of Auglc^ a, in a dilu- tion for Liverpool, where he had sifrbtof the light- j house of rhat port, hut meeting with an opposite current • f air, he was driven in a northerly direc- tion, and ni ht coming on. he descended at sea, midway between the English Coast and the Isle of Man, and was picked on by a herring fisher from Douglas, in af< almost exhausted state, and landed at Livernool, after having traversed upwards of 200 miles over sea. The following is a compressed description of Mr. Saddler's Balloon and Car : ' The Balloon, which was entirely new, f ir ev. ceeded in point of beauty and of size any bv which Mr. S. had hitherto ascended it was in form a spheriod, and made of lutestring silk, whh an in- terior net- work w- ven in its texture: ir. fUted, it presented a beautiful appearance, being composed of alternate stripes of crimson and white, which were conne& ed in the centre by a zone of gold co. loor, and richly decorated in the Grecian style, with emVematic devices of the Dublin arms, the Prince Regent's plume, and the Iri- h Harp. Its height was 70 feet, exclusive of the car, canopy, and suspending cords; its diameter was 55; its contents were 87,114 cubic, and the surface 9503 square feet : and when inflated with Hydrogen Gas, its power of 5444 lbs. 10 oz. The Car was splendid in its decorations, and classic in its dirrfiion j the shape oval, and the co- lon r of it sea green; at the head and stern were two Dolphins, supporting festoons of oak and ivy, and on the other side a representation of the Harp, with a figure finely modelled. This was attached, by six gilt ropes, to the ba- e of a dome formed of 1 crimson silk interseffed with spiral wreaths of I laurel: the canopy was of silk, beneath which hung a luxuriant drapery fringed with gold ; the tassels were supported by eagles, and the whole was crowned with a rich Ducal Coronet, and 00m. bined as elegant and novel an objeJt as the ima- gination could well conceive. On Thursday se'r. night, the house of a farmer named Thomas Hennessey, living at Glanacunna, Ballypoteen, was attacked by an armed party of villains who demanded that he should ins'antly come out to them, declaring that they would have the worth out of him of the eight pounds he got as a reward for assisting and apprehending the robbers of General Mabon. Hennessy had so se- cured bis cabin that the villains cou'd not imme- diately break in ; but they had provided that he should not receive any succour from without, by placing guards on the only two houses that were immediately near him. Finding that he was re- solved, the scoundrels at length succeeded in forc- ing the house, which they searched for Hennessy, but in vain, the poor man having effedhially con- cealed himself in a cupboard. The ruffians then turned the rest of the family out of the house, to which they deliberately set fire, and remained dui- ing the conflagration, expefling that every suc- ceeding minute would force Hennessy from his place of concealment. He kept his ground, how- ever, until tlv flames and roof falling in, threat- ened him with instant death, when he lnckily bolted, and malting bis way through a back win- dow, escaped inro his garden, and hid amongst the cabbages.— Clonmel Herald. « LI,' ' I - ' • . 1 .1 BELFAST COURSE OF EXCHANGE, & c.

I On the authority of Corunna Papers, it is stated that Lord WELLINGTON had attacked and cut off the rear- guard of MARMOWT'S army, taking 3000 infantry and 700 horse, with waggons, baggage, We shall be happy to be enabled to confirm this report; but no information has yet been re- ceived by Government'to that effefl. The 18th and 19th Bulletins, which have not y t been published in England, are stated to con. tain ample details of the battle of Mojai. sk ; and describes the loss of the Russians to amount to 40,000 men, and that of the French to 10,000. There are no late accounts from Russia— no- thing more confirmatory of the battle of Mojaisk, than what has been before stated. It is rumoured to have been long and sanguinary. Some piivate s: atements from Paris mention, that the head- quarters of the French army had been established at the scene of aiftiort. Cow, OCT, 2 Yesterday ftiormng ths Virago gun brig, Lieut.

The other is without one of its legs, and the whole of the thund. rbolt. The two which were taken at Madrid are in a more perfef! state, though injured, and without the square flag or standard. That found in the bc- d of a rirer, as mentioned in our last, was nearly petfefl. Four of them are numbered 13, 22, 39,51. The stand- ards were in such a tattered and mutilated state, that there was not a device or letter legih'e; and the garrison flag of Badajos was like a sieve, and great part of it quite red with human blood.

DOWN CATHOLIC MEETING. The following Speeches at this Meeting were omitted in our last for want of room : Mr. BYRNE addressed the Meeting as- fol- lows :— Gentlemen, I hope I shall not be con- sidered guilty of an unpardonable obtrusion, in endeavouring to occupy, for a few moments, the attention of this most respectable Assembly, at the present early stage of our proceedings— and I seize upon this moment with the mo; e avidity, because it is the only one which I can avail my- self of, to express my humble opinions and senti- ments on the great objefl of our meeting, consist- ently with the high and honourable station to which you have been pleased tn advance me, in calling me to the Chair— an honour for wb'ch I beg- leave to return my sincerest and most profound thanks.— I am not so vain, Gentlemen, as to at- tribute to any merits of my own, or to any per- sonal claims the flattering distinction by which I mm this day favoured. No, Gentlemen, it is my pride to recoiled, that I owe the compliment chiefly, if not solely, to yonr kind memory of my late honoured father's cor, duff and charafler in private and in public life— and it is my pride, I hope, a legitimate pride, to recollefl of him, that the favour, the affeflion, and partiality of his fel- low- citizens,- joined to the exercise of modest ta- lents, in the occtipa'ions of honest industry; raised him from the humblest to the highest walks of commercial life— and that, in the evening of hJs days, by the confidence of his Catholic country- men, he became invested with a public character. The fairness of his private dealings Was the war- rant he gave of political integrity. I t* ust I may be allowed the honest boast of saying, that, in the discharge of his duty, during a ppriod of consider- able difficulty, he justified the choice that placed him in an eminent station amongst his fellow- sub- jeffs and fellow- sufferers of Ireland. I trust I am allowed in truth to say, that he- acquitted himself to the advantage of his country, and of his own honour. If,. Gentlemen, it should ever be my happiness to irerit and to obtain, any portion of the corfidence you reposed in my father, I shall esteem it as the best inheritance he has left me., and shall cherish it with a care and solicitude pro- portioned to its inestimable value. Gen'lemen, in offering myself to yonr notice for the first time, I labour under a difficulty, that it would require talents, to which I have no pre- tension to countervail. I am a new man amongst you, and that would prove a subjafl of embaipss. ment to any one similarly circumstanced. But more than that, Gentlemen, I am a man rpistet- presented—- misrepresented in Public Prints— by whom I know not, nor do I pause to inquire fot what purpose j but I feel I owe it to myself, for considerations personal to myself, and for which I solicit your indulgence; and J owe it to you, who have placed me in this Chair, to explain here the part I afled, as a public man, upon one or twp interesting occasions, that drew me, as it were, from the walls of retirement, in wiSch I generally find all ray indulgence and happiness The first occasion, on which some person, perhaps some bidden foe, in the employment of a respeflabie Public Print, thought fit to associate my name with Brpopular topics, was a considerable time ago, when, returning to this country, from wheace I was a long time detained by a severe domestic calamity, I found the public wind agitated with the unpopular question of the Veto. I did then think, and expressed candidly, but diffidently,' what I thought; that the question being a matter of Church regulaticn, I agieed, as I was bound to agree, with the venerable Archbishops of the Irish Catholic Church, who had pronounced upon it. Tliese revciend and dignified Personages have, in subsequent conference with the whole Catholic Clergy, reversed their first opinion, and I again bow to their paiamount authority. For, Gentle- men, I hold it 10 be a most distinguishing feature in our Religion, that it, more than any other, in- culcates the law of obedience, of complete obe- dience, to Ecclesiastical Authority, in Ecclesiastical matters. Bur, Gentlemen, of the interference of the Crown in the appointment of our Prelates, so far as that interference can give to the Crown any new influence, I have but one opinion, and that more decided than I generally venture to advance. We ought never to concede it; for to give it, were to give to the Crown an engine of great political mischief against the People. Surely, Gentlemen, we, more than any other description of men, have reason to dread an increasing influence of the Crown- To what else can we, in truth, attribute the disgraceful continuance of our thraldom ? We have for years past witnessed, as allied with us, every man of mind and of weight, of every party — and yet the obstinate perseverance of the head that bore the Crown, though affefled by moral and physical infirmity, was enabled, by the excess of its influence, to resist a measure, that was justly called a measure of National Salvation. Another occasion, Gentlemen, on which some persons thought fit to animadvert upon the part I afled, was when I proposed, in the contempla- tion of a Regency that was to have been exer- cised by an Illustrious Personage, whom I thought was the pledged friend of every good public man, and of every good public measure— when I proposed, I say, in compliment of his ad- vancement to the Regency, and in reliance upon him, that we should abstain from all political movement, whilst we should have signified intel- ligibly the motives by which we were guided— It remains for ever to be known, whether the mea- sures we pursued were better than those, by which we might have furnished to the higher Powers an opportunity of bestowing our rights with the grace of a spontaneous donation, or whether my opinion was right on that occasion. I yielded it, however, cheerfully, to the sense of the majority with whom I afled, as I ever shall consider it is my duty to do. I shall only add, now, Gentlemen, that I have been favored with a perusal of the Resolu- tions, that have been most ably prepared, and will be submitted for your adoption this dav. They have my hearty assent, every word of them, and shall meet my humble concurrence. And now, Gentlemen, I shall beg leave to discharge the duty of Chairman, to which your kindness has appoint- ed me, to the best of my ability. Mr. E. C. POTTINGER.— Mr. Chairman, the justice and necessity of putting the Roman Catholics of Ireland on the same footing with their Protestant fellow- subjefls, has heen so often and so ably argued and proved, that I shall not detain this assembly by attempting to elucidate, what I deem incontestibly true and admitted.— But, Sir, I trust I may be permitted to express my sentiments, in order to assist in bringing this great national question to a final and successful conclusion. Sir, I strenuously advise the Roman Catholics and their friends, not to relax in their efforts, but by every constitutional exertion, to support and forward it; and I entirely concur in the Petition and Resolutions of this day. Sir, I have no confidence or reliance on the present Ad- ministration— I will not enter into a personal de- scription of them— it is unnecessary, and might, in some respefls, appear invidious. It is enough to say, I enterlain no good opinion of either their understandings, or of their integrity. Indeed, I can entertain little hope, or place little confidence in any of those persons, who, at any time joined the Perceval Administration— who joined in the dark and dismal cry of " No Popery"—" Church and State."— This old stale trick, resorted to in every most dark and malignant period of British history.— I say nothing, but a public recantation of those principles, and this condufl, and a long continued steady course in the opposite direflion, and in support of your Claims, could bring me to trust any of those men— or any of the men who have been attached to that party, and those prin- ciples, who have, for a long series of years, too much, if not entirely guided the Councils of the Empire— who have reduced the Empire, and Ire- land in particular, to a dangerous and critical situation— whose measures have spread plague, pestilence, famine, battle, and murder, over the face of the globe, and whose cruelty and rapacity excited a Rebellion in Ireland— men who have continually refused reform on every subjefl— and who, with the word Loyalty in their mouths, and under its mask, seek to plunder the people, und up- hold that venal tribe of slaves, borough- mongers, placemen and pensioners, who, for their own in- terest, calumniate the charafler of every friend to civil and religious liberty, in order that they may continue to fatten on the industry of the People. Sir, I advise the Roman Catholics of Ireland to enter into no treaty with this party— with any of those men. . If ortce they are involved in such a labyrinth, I think your Cause will be hopeless— if you treat of Vetos, of Securities, and I know not what, your enemies will evade, distrafl, delay, and, perhaps, finally rejefl your Cause. I hold it, that every man who adds any condition to granting you justice, does it to betray your Cause, and to afford him room to shape bis course as may best serve his interest, and obtain him a place, or re- tain him in one. Security— from who ? to whom ? Security from four or five millions of men ! Who can give it? How is it to be taken ? It is absurd— : it is impossible. 1 know of only one Security--- it j is satisfaflory— it has succeeded in every clime, in , every1 age— it is obvious— do the People justice— There is ample— there is full Security— particu- j larly from Irishmen. Who can— who would sus- pefl the Roman Catholics of Ireland, if justice were done them, after the exemplary manner in which they have afled under pains and pena ties, and under tbe cruel and disgusting mmner in which they have been treated. No person of goodness or of wisdom can suspefl them but fools, or those knaves, who wish to divide and govern, that they may, with more facility, reap the wages of iniquity. What, Sir, is it at this period, when no man knows when the dread hour and time may come, when Irishmen, on their own ground, may be obliged, in defence of all that is dear to man, to face the greatest Conqueror Europe has per- haps ever seen— is this the time to sp ead distrust through the land ?— is this a time to make Pro- testant and Catholic suspefl each other ? and that when perhaps set touch- fcather with our inveterate foe, either tne eye or the mind are to turn aside, from suspicion of hatred or treachery from our fellow- countrymen?— Perish the idea— perish them who feel it. . their privation, have our Roman C . thnlic Bre'hren fled or deserted their colours, their King ? and Country's c ' tis" ? Mo. they have fought, and bled, and conquered, and died, with you, wh ' rpver you- fl lg has been displayed— and can any human being think, that on their native soil, that there alone they could afl wi hout wisdom anH with disho- nour ? No, no, do justice to Ireland, and before her Sons every invader will fly like the autumnal leaf driven before the equinoflial gale. Sir, it affords relief from the dark view of Ireland's foes, the enemies of mankind, to turn our minds and hopes to that ^ illustrious and noble band of en- lightened Statesmen and Patriots, who have so ably and honestly espoused and supported your claims, and to whom you have this day paid such proper marks of respefl and attention— a band of Nobles, comprehending all that is great and good in the Empire— from the first Peer of the realm next the Blood Royal, the old tried faithful frijnd of the People— to every liberty, civil and religious, the supporter of the Majesty of the People. I shall only mention one other individual— a noble Earl, our Country's Hero, whose breast harbors nothing but strift honor and purity— whose con- dufl in the field and in the senate stands so emi- nently high and acknowledged, and whose fidelity, attention, and affeflion to Ireland, has been mani- fest on every occasion and at all times. Sir, I should embrace this moment to address a few words to the inhabitants of this county, on a sub- jefl of importance, to this, and every other pub- lic question— I mean the summary or immediate dissolution of Parliament— if I did not understand I might have that honour, after the immediate business of the day is disposed of; and sure no friend to you can consider our condufl on such an event taking place as otherwise, than affording a certain proof of our sincerity or duplicity in this important suhjeft. Sir, I would have the People of England to be aware, that if, through the weakness or crimes of any administration, Ireland should be conquered, or, BY ANY MEANS, BE SEPARATED AND DIVIDED from the Empire, England falls of course. If Great Britain regenerates her Parliament, puts down Corruption, and that justice is done to Ire- land, and no civil distinflion is left between her Roman Citholics and Protestants on account of religious opinions, then indeed the Empire may bid defiance to every foreign and domestic foe.—• Sir, I rejoice to see the talent, unanimity and zeal, this day displayed in this Assemb y, by so many of my valued and respefled friends. 1 trust that, henceforth, the Roman Catholics and Protestants of Ireland will live in peace, harmony, and com- fort— hat Industry will adorn, whilst science shall enlighten this fettile land— and that, Discord and Distrust being banished, the Irish nation may en- joy the greatest of human happiaess, peace on earth, and good- will towards mankind.

SINECURE PLACES & PENSIONS. A SPEECH OF SIR CMARLES SEDLEY, TN THE REIGN OF KING WILLIAM. " MR. SPEAKER— We have provided for the Army;— we hjve provided for the Navy;— and now at last a- bew reckoning is brought upon us. We must likewise provide for the LISTS. Truly, Mr. Speaker, it is a sad r<- fl ' flion, tha' some men should wallow in wealth and places, whilst others pay away in taxes the fourth part of their revenue, for the support of the same Government. We are not upon equal terms for his Mijesty's service. The Courtiers and great Officers charge as it were in armour ; and feel not the taxes, by reason -> f their places. The Prince is pleased to lay his wants be- fore us; and, I am confident, expefls our advice upon it. We ought, therefore, to tell him wine pensions are too great ; and what places may oe ex- tinguished during the WAR and PUBLIC CALAMITY. To say no more, some have places of £" 3000, some of £ 6000 per annum, each;— otben h ve £ 8000 per annum. See. Sec. Certainly public pen- sions, whatever they have been form iiy, ^ re much too great for the present want etnd calamity hat reigns every where else ; and it is a scand tl ' hat a Government so s'tck at heart as our's is, should look so well in the face. We must save the public money wherever we can, for I am afraid the war is too great for our purses, if things be not managed with all imaginable thrift. When the people of England see all thiRgs are saved that can be saved; that there are no exorlitunt pensions nor unnecessary placet;— and all is applied to he use for which it is given :— we shall give, and they shall pay, whatever the reigning Prince may want, to secure the true diguity of the State and the welfare <> f the country. I conclude, Mr. Speaker'; let us save the King what we can ; and then let us proceed to^ fi* him what we ire able." REMARKABLE PRODUCE. In a field- in the neighbourhood of Maxwell- town, belonging to Mr. Fergusson, painter, and possessed by George Cooper, one grain of potatpe oats has this year been found to produce 14 stalks, on which were 1266 grains! With this informa- tion we have been favoured by Mr. Couper, himself. A still more extraordinary instance of. she same kind has occurred on a piece of bog ground, in the farm of Nether- Park of Closehurn, never, be- fore cultivated, where there is a ctop of pot itoe oats, the general luxuriance of which may be con- ceived from this circumstance, that, in ' a variety of instances one grain produces five or six stalk?, and each stalk three or four heads from the upper joint, making the amazing increase of 2iH) 0 told. This reflefls the highest credit . on ihe . tenant-, as well as on Mr. Monteath, the proprietor, who, we understand, makes a very liberal'aliowance for bringing this kind of ground into cultivation— an example well worthy the imitation of other land- hold ers.—( Dumfries Paper.) NEWRY SUNDAY SCHOOL. Among the numberless great and good things pro- duced by the Sunday Schools, perhaps there never was one of a snore pleasing nature than was witnessed on Sunday the 20th inst. by the Managers of the Newry Sunday School. It is their regular practice every Sunday, to give out a certain portion of the Sacred Scriptures to be learnt by heart during the week. Thus it was, that on the 13th inst. the given portion was the first eight verses of the 12th chap, of St. Ma- thew's Gospel ; but very much to the childrcns ciedit it may be mentioned, that there exists amongst them such a spirit of emulation for learning the Sacred Scriptures by heart, that on the following Sunday no less than 86 of them had it as perfectly as could be reasonably expected; numbers of them had got from 20 to 60 verses, but the ten foremost children, in the course of the week, had absolutely learned by heart between them, no less than lt26 verses ; one of them was a little boy ( named James M'Robeits) not more than 11 years of age, who had, in the one week,' got 218 verses, which he repeated to his teacher with an accuracy scarcely to be credited ;— and what is very singular, scarcely any of these children ever received an hours tuition in any other seminary, except the Newry Sunday School, which has not yet been esta- blished, two years and a half.
