' The different Articles are to be delivered on board the neveral Cruizers at their Stations by the Cumia^ ttKii, MR. CANNING, On Monday last a highly respe& able company, consiitinpr NF abmt 400 Freemen and Gen lemen, the friends of Mr. CANNINGS partiok of an elegant dinner at the Livernnr. L Arms Hotel. The large room was suitably fitted up for th? occasion, '. he front of the orchestra being beautifully decorated with a crown composed of larnps interwoven with wreaths of laurel; and at the other end of the room a T'ansparency presenting the number 1631, which was the number of freemen who placed Mr. Canning wi: h fo large a M . joriiy at the head of the poll. After dinner, " Non Nobis Doninc." The following toasts were, in the course of the evening, delivered FROM the Chair, which, on this occasion, was most ably and respeftably filled by J" hn G'a VON*, Esq. « H » Mi';-* ry tiie King, Duke of Lancsster," wth three times three An'hem, ' God save the King " " His Royal Highness the Prince Regent," with three times thre » . " The Queen and Roy\ l Famil /." " Our Glorious Constitution in Church and State: may it con'inue unimpaired to the End of Time," with three times three. Glee," Good Subj As." " His Royal Highness the Duke of York and the Army." " His Royal Highness the Duke of Clarence and the Navy." The Chairman then rose, and after a very elo- lent speech, in which he adverted to the princi- il featu- es of the recent contest, conc'ud ' d say- N[ R—" I have n > W, Gentlemen, to give you for a toast,' the Health of our Representative, the Right HFLN. GEORGE Canning, and may our connexion with him thus honourab'Y and happily commenc- d, only terminate with his political life," which was drank with thunders of aoplause. Mr. CANNING then rose, and, in a most eloquent peech, in substance spoke to the following effeft: He obsei vad, it had been his lot ofte « to rise in ther places, with the weight of momentous ques- tions upon his shoulders, and with the anticipation of honourable controversy ; he, however, never rose in his life with such ideas, and under such embarrassments as he did at present. There it something in opposition which animates, but kind- ness only overwhelms ; and his first fear in rising to address them was, thai he might not be able to finish what he might wish to sa J, as the expression of his own feelings, and in due acknowledgment! for those which they h id expressed towards him. In a pol'nical life, of no very short duration, he observed, he had had many du- ies to fulfil, and he had endeavoured to fulfil them to the best of his power. A new duty was now cast upon him, to which he had hitherto been a stranger— he duty of representing one of the greatest, most powerful, wealthy, and enlightened communities of this grea' kingdom. A duty involving many minor duties, not only that of being faithful TO their interests, but true at the same time to the general interests of the c untry. As the Repre- sentative of Liverpool, he represented a great town, whose greatness depended upon their com- merce, and whose interests were interwoven WITH hat of the empire. He, however, felt no diffi- culty in undertaking whatever was in his p > wer to do, but he was aware that he had much TO learn, much to study, much to inquire, and much to balance in his own mind, and he LOOKED to them with all those for whose interests, and from whom he was in a great measure to derive coun- sel and instruction. There were opinions, how- ever, in which the particular politics of this gr « « t COAIN mast be intimately connected with general politics. Commerce and peace were linked to- gether. And'it had been endeavoured to be in. sinuatrd by his opponents that they alone could be the faithful guardians of their interests. He ad mitted this as a general principle. Lovers of oeace! Who were not lovers of peace? In the ABSTRACT, who were advocates of war, of famine, or of pestilence '— Those who published these pro- positions knew they were deceiving the audience they addressed. They knew that the questions of peace and war were am ingst the most difficult and complica ed questions that human iruagina- ti n could conceive, or human genius could be called upon to disentangle. Those were not simple propositions of elementary truth. N >, they were always interwoven with considerations and circumstances which they well knew would per- plex the discussion of those snbjeits with difficul- ties whenever they were proposed ; but these they kept out of sight when they wished to make an impression on popular feelings. These men talk of peace in a state of the world in which all those ties which compose the elements of society were weakened, and almost rent asunder, by the deso- lating principles of our enemy. They talk of peace, and of themselves, as the lovers and advo- cates of peace, as absurdly as if an inhabitant of . West India island, amidst earthquakes and vol canoes, should talk of physical order and perpen dicular position. Who does not love light better than darkness ? But when the storm is abroad, for purposes inscrutable to us in the moral and physical world— when Providence has let loose upon us this scourge of mankind, to talk of loving peace in the abstrafl would be a reflec tion upon the understanding of those men, it did not call in question the heart. Absurd as the doctrine was when applied to our state and the state of the world in general, with what aggravated absurdity did it present itsetf to our view in a great commercial town. Peace— with whom ? With that friend of Peace, with him who had fostered the commercial intercourse of i mankind, and with him who had told them : publicly that it is his object to destroy that which 1, was the foundation of their greatness ; that which j is the gloiy of their State. They were not con- tent with this absurdity : they describe in glow-' nig colours what are the sufferings of war, and they fain would persuade us that those who, in spite of our suiferir. gs would exhort us to per- severe, are insensible to the mise.° f nllr fel- low- creatures. Wir h. i l its miseries i- i the stag, nation » f commerc.;, and in : he privation of jn my domestic comforts : who was the man that h' 1*' * h art to look at them without being affoC. i— But he wished his adversaries would deal fit*!"'. War, he observed, was full of difficulty and din- ger; yet it had its consolations too; but how happens it that those Gentlem- n invert the glass when they look at the victories of our ener. i: es : as th ' v rtre presc- n; e. l to our view, we hear no particulars of the miseries and privations to which they subject the inhabitants of France ; but on the other hand, when they looked at our exploits thev turned the diminishing side of the glass, and presented us with a magnified view of our mise- ries. But I would ask rhem whether the mother in France, when she is delivered of a m tie chid, did not look forward to tl" I ve- ir, n- hen he was to be torn to pitiless destruction ? He would ask them whether agriculture was not languish- ing for want of male population ? The subject's of the conqueror ara consoled by glory ; but let us be mindful of their unhappiness; and in a wir from which we cannot extricare ourselves, let the perseverance which England h id already so suc- cessfully exerted, be continued ; in a w ir which htd realized such victories as our pasf history might warrant us in expecting ; but such as the boldest imagination durst not have conceived, and such as would be transmitted by the pen of the historian to the admiraton of posterity. If peace could be obtained, God forbid that it should not be so ! but is peace to be enjoyed with the security of peace ? It must be so enjoyed, or it. would only substitute a temporary repose, to be followed by a more dreadful and destructive war* It had been said, and said wisely too, that charac- ter had its inconveniencies, that a man of reput- u tion dared not do a base action, though it might be advantageous, and to extend that rem iris from individuals to national chara « ter, it might be safely asserted, that, when a nation forfeit- ed its honour, it had forfeited its existence Not such the opinions, of ou.- adversaries, who think that peace purchased at any price is pre- ferable to « - ar carried on with such sacrifices as we are making. II he thought the continuance of ' he present w ir averse to commerce, he could not - present himself with confidence to a great com- mercial community, and he w 11 knew ihit in interests were inseparable with the general inter, ests of the empire. He said, they ha^ be-? ' ' old that if they would vote for those G- rttl- fflen, th- streets of Liverpool would be fuil of the hum of ndustry, and that all would be happy, peaceful, and tranquil. H" asked but one q ies'ion in an- swer to that, which w is, if England sunk how w » » Liverpool to survive ?— They had b- ei, t ,! d, and tha' very lately too, and h" ( VI . C.) nad seen it choed in publications whi^ h were un lerstoo j to snoport the ooinions of their adversaries—- h ir, if there was nothinir in the wicke Jness of > var, there was something in the hooelessness » f onr ci th. it ought to induce 11s to listen to terms of coneilia- lon. They had been told also, that all the Allies of Great Britain were unfortu atf, but he should rather say that the converse of the proposition id ' rue ; that the unfortunate are our AU' » s, that we had stepped forward in defence of strngg'ing liherty— to rai- e ' he fallen—' o pro'eft the weak and to uphold those who relied wholly on our is. sistance to save them from the sword of the con* queror j but in fad he ( Mr. C ) saw nofhirtg that . impoverished or impiired the national hope— he believed that w; still might have grei'er p iva. tions to endure, but of ' his lie was confident, ihit we could not be saved al > ne. It. was our lot, that as the safety of the great community was in: er. woven with that ot the country, so <> as ' hst of Eagland interwoven wi h the g nerd - af. iy of Europe and the civilized world. It had been im- puted to those with who- n h » hid arte !, that th > ugh the evils of wat had affl ' led commeri- e, ih. it something was yet left by the enemy which might possibly be enjoyed. The policy of those Gentlemen had offered him a solution to that ques[ ion } we w? re told that by surre idering those measures by which i wis attempted to retaliate upon the enemy, we sh ' uld conciliate America. The surrender had been made, whether improvi. dently or not, it was not then necessary to ar^ u; that was matter of controversy, hat it wa> made fruitlessly, was matter of fail H " would n < t have it thought that he was of opinion thar no im? lio. ration could be possibly nude in the intern il -. tate of this countr^, nor relief afforded to the commer. metcial interests. One advantage, he said, arising from he in. sulated state in which had been placed by the success of the Decrees of the enemy was, that we had learned the more to look to our res mrces, and he trusted that thjre might yet be m iny blessings in store foi us,— This led h m to consider a ques- tion which had been more fully commented upon by his friend Mr. Gladstone— they might naiunl. ly suppose he meant the trade to Indii.—-\ id long before he had ihe slightest h ' pe of presenting himself to this town, the worthy Cnairman knew that he enterrained an opinion, that commercial relief was to be detived to the general commerce of this country from the extension of that trade.— He stated, that he ought to guard this opinion with two qjalificaiions, the first— that great as he thought that relief would eventually be, iie did not think it would be so extensive or so sudden as would be expedted, and the first thing to be guard- ed against with all those who engaged i: i it was—* too precipiiate reliance on the enjoyments ot the good that might be offered ; and, - econdiy, a too great despondency if those first hopes should not be re ciized. He was afraid that the first adven- inert w > uid hope too much, but he trusted they would not despair too soon. He believed it was in the ge- neral nature of c nnmerce to fiad its own level, and much must be left to individual er. iei prize » ud in- dusuy, but he trusted that ihe result would be upon the whole, beneficial.

He; freely owned that much remained for him to leirn, and that he not orilv should thankfully receive, but enmestly court the communications and advice of every individual amongst them The questions of war and peace, and the question of commerce, he observed, necessarily 1e* d him to the more particular consideration of that con. Tiexion which he had so auspiciously formed with this srpat commercial fown. To have been call- ed to such , a representation in such a manner, world be, if his political life should terminate to- morrow, onp of the mos' glorious ends that he could have desired ; but when the commencement of their connexion was accompanied with a wish that it might be perpetuated, he wan; ed the cou- rage to re- echo that wish, but he ought to re echo it wiih something like consciousness of his own want of personal clVms. He said, that they had been told, that during the contest, all the exertions, and all the fre » vt- he libo- al spirit of the contest, had been on the sidp of their antagonists, and that none had voted for him but poor creatures under venal influence or tyrannical compulsion ! When he looked down the tables before him— when he viewed rhe countenances of the youths of Liver, { fool, who had been militant in his cause, in their own cause, beaming with ingenuousness, spirit, and truth, he was furnishe ' with a triumphant refutation to that assertion ; and that led him to suspe^ f that it was true on the one side and not on the other, and that the imputed ought rather to have been the imouters. He stated further^ that there was a singular coincidence between internal and external subjeiTs. Gpd forbid that he should impute to any Englishman that he was a friend to the enemies of his country. It could not be. But unconsciously to themselves some similarity of sentiment will pervade their views : it is thus ' we have heard that Lords of the soil have alone nn interest in the Constitutfon of England— but al! have alike an interest. Not the soil ffnly, not the hereditary possessor' of acres only, but those also wljo by their honest industry and commercial eriter/ irize, raise those acres an hundred- fold above their vulue. He really believed-— he was willing and ar. xious to believe, that those who used these arguments did not know how exafHy they corres ponded with the doftrine of the enemies of their country, who told them that soil ; nd territory are the only, just titles to the empire of thejand atjd of the sea. To this haughty opinion Great Bri- tain had always answered, that though small, rocky, and comparatively barren, yet as she is mighty in herself, and powerful by the efficacious ' means which her commerce affords, she has a right to the tridtnt of the pcean, the sceptre of th * world. To both those arguments he returned the same answer, - he right is in England to give, and com. merce to share, the domination of the soil. The arguments ag- ripst fiflitious greatness, and in fa- vour of nAtural right, are in both instances the sSme, and he had no doubt of the coincidence being accidental, but it was singular and striking. He would not trespass upon their time any longer, and that- ked them for the honour done to him ; and when, in looking back, he could find little to deserve it, he could only look forward with hppe that he might not disgrace it. He begged that in sirting down, they would allow him to sa- lute them as members of the antieAt and loyal tswn of Liverpool, and propose, " Prosperity to its Commerce, and Perpetuity to its Principles"— which was drank with great applause. FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, OCTOBER 57. TWENTY- XHRRD BULLETIN OF THE GRANT) ARMY. " Moscow. October 9. " The advanced guard< commanded- by the King of Naples, is upon the Nam, twenty leagues from Moscow ; the enemy's army is upon the Kalonga.— Some skirmishes have taken place for the last three days. The King of Naples has had all the advantage, aad has always driven the enemy from their positions. The Cossacks hover upofi our flanks. A patrole of ] 30 dragoons of the guard commanded by Major Marthodj has fallen into an ambuscade of the Cos- sacks between the Toad of Moscow and Kalouga.— The dragoons sabred S00 of them, and opened them- Selves a passage, but they left 20 men upon the field of battle, who were taken ; amongst them is the Major, dangerously wounded. The Duke of El- chingen is at Boghorodosk. The advanced guard of tlfc Viceroy is at Troitskoi, upon the road to Drnit- row, The colours taken by the Russians from the Turks in different wars, and several curious tilings found in the Kremlin, have been sent off for Paris.— We found a Madona enriched with diamonds ; it has also been sent to Paris. We add here a statistical account of Moscow, which was found amongst the papers of the palace. It appears that Rostopchin has emigraied. At Voronovo he set fire to his castle, and left the following writing attached to a post :— 4 I have for eight years embellished this country house, and I have lived happy in it in the bosom of my family.

Mallet, Lahoru, and Gui- dal, have deceived some National Guards, and direct- ed them against the General Member of Police, the Prefect, and the Commandant of La Place de Paris. They committed violence against them. They false- ly spread the report of the Emperor's death. The Ex- Generals have been arrested, they have been con- victed of imposition. Justice is going to be executed upon them. The most absolute tranquillity reigns at Paris. It has been troubled in three hotels where the Brigands went. The present decree shall be publish ed, affixed, & c. " The Minister of General Police, " THE DUKE OF ROVIGO." ( Moniteur, Oct. 24,. J " PARIS, OCT. 25.— The individuals arrested yes- terday and those suspected of being their accomplices, have to- day been transferred to the Abbaye. A mili- tary commission has been appointed to decide upon their fate. It has met to- day, and heard the charges and interrogatories read.— Moniteur, Oct. 25. PARI*, OCT. 25.— On 23d October, at half- past seven in the morning, the three Ex- Generals, Mal- let, Lahoru, and Guidal, attempted acts of violence against the authorities, especially charged with maintaining the public order of this capital. Tnree I quarters of an hour after this/ attempt, those madmen were arrested, and out of a state to do injury. Two hours after, all their accomplices and adherents, viz. about fifteen officers and sub- officers, whom* they had seduced or deceived, were under the power of the Police.. The sinister reports spread by those brigands, at first caused some alarm ; but information, from authority, was sufficient to dissipate them. Pa- ris has remained so tranquil that the public funds have not experienced the slightest alteration. The interrogatory of these guilty men has consumed the whole day, and parr of the night. It results from the witnesses, that the conspiracy, if that name can be given to such an affair, was only contained in the heads of Mallet and his two confidential principals.— No indication has been collected, which can render a single citizen of Paris or the departments suspectcd of being accomplices, or having the slightest under- standing with the guilty. There was published in the evening, in al! the quarters of the city, an infor- mation of the Minister of Police, ( inserted above).— The reading was every where received with cries of " long live the Emperor." Yesterday the three Ex- Generals, and the individuals whom they had scduced into their culpable enterprise, were conducted to the hotel of the Minister of General Police, in the middle of a double row of Gens d'Amies d'Elite. Every where, on their passage, the people expressed their indignation, and accompanied them to the prison, with shouts of" long live the Emperor." Letteis. from Moscow of tie 8tli, announce that the French array, under the King of Naples, has en- tered Ktlowga, a town situated upon the Occa, 35 leagues from Moscow, and which contains a popula tion of .13,000 souls. The remains of the Russiin army fall back before the Flench troops.— Journal de Paris. " NURENBURGH, OCTOBER 18.— The Polish Ge- neral Debrowski has beaten the Russian General! Decu and Baranow, in two bloody battles upon the Berezina. They have fallen back upon Mozy.— M irshal the Duke of Belluno's corps has arrived in the town of Minsk and its neighbourhood. GEIIONA, OCT. 17 According to intelligence this moment received from Lcmarque, Commandant of Upper Catalonia, Marshal Soult's army has fortu- nately effected a junction with the army of the centre, commanded by his Majesty the King of Spain, and with ' that commanded by the Duke of Albufera.— This mass of force, which nothing can resist, has al - ready commenced operations, the results of which n) ust be decisive." LOW LSON, Monday, November 2. I. OSS OF THE BALTIC CONVOY. The terrible calamity which has befallen a British covoy, homeward bound from the Baltic, is com- municated in some detail in the Paris Papers. The number first discovered to have been in distress, off the Point of Wittau, in the island of Rugen, amount- ed to two vessels of war, a frigate, and a brig, and twenty- two trading vessels. Of this fleet, the frigate and five sail, transports, it is said, weathered the land, and seventeen, including the rtinn of war brig, gpt on shore. The brig and eight vessels were set fire to, and we should therefore suppose their ciews were saved; and the other eight vessels got within range of the enemy's batteries, and were preserved from similar destruction. Those vessels were ulti- mately wrecked, but their cargoes, it is said, had been I previously saved. The loss of property is estimated ' at an enormous amount. The vessels were laden with Russian pioduce. The Moniteur of the 28th October, contains two long reports respecting the operations of the army of Portugal subsequent to the battle of Salamanca.— They principally relate to affairs had with the Spa nish guerillas, and speak of the siege of Burgos as follows : " The enemy afterwards made their dispositions for attacking Burgos. During three weeks they have given several assaults, which have been constant- ly repulsed. At the attack of the 2Sd of September, they appear to have lost from 2,000 to 2,500 men : and on that which took place on the 11th October, j the Highland 42d regiment was very roughly hand-! led, and lost many man. On the 14th October the j fort continued to defend itself vigorously." aSRCOMn RDITIOI— STAR- OPFIC"!. In niisno wi'h the reports in the preceding co- hims, of disturbances in Paris, it was this dav stqte- f on ' Change, that the~ communication in- France hatfeeo the coasM and ' he interior had j been stopped : and that commotions h id broken oof in several o'her departments, which threatened th » overthrow of the present Government of France, the leaders of the parties being professed Repubhcais.

Be it rem mbired, that this is at the moment of a general conscription of 120.000 fresh rift ms ; thtt ' it follows a recent requisition of 2500 artisans from Paris ; and that it is hy this . time well known in the F- ebch capital, what tor- rents of French blood have been, shed for the bar- tered honour of lodging among- the smoking ruins of Moscow. The following are some particulars relative to the arrested Generals : " Mallet, a General of Brigade, a staunch Jaco- bin, was employed in the Army of Italy, under Bonaparte, before the latter went to Egypt, and about four years s'nee when the French General Miollis was appointed Military. Commander of Rome, Mallet was . his Ckefdt I'Elat Mijor, but in consequence of some violent exmesst'jns made use of by him, concerning the manner, in which the Pope was treated, he was sept fo Paris as a pri- soner, and was obliged to retire upon half- pay. << Gnillet is likewise a General of Brigade, and formerly employed under Hoche in the Vendee ; he had been in the army ever since, and being likewise of the Jacobinical school, he got himself into trouble with his friend Mallet, for having at a public table, about four years since, in company with the Senators Tracey, Girat, and Cabanes, and the Deputy Attorney- General of the Council of Prizes in Paris, F1 rent Guyot ( formerly a Member of the Convention, and a great Jacobin), made use of strong expressions against Bonaparte. — It was even reported in Paris at that time, ( hat there was sufficient ground to try them. The Se- nators w% re only reprimanded for their intemperate conduff, but the Generals Mallet, Gnillet, and Fiorent Guyot were sent to the Temple, and after- wards to the Chateau de Vincennes; the last is still in confinement, but the two former were re- stored to their rank about four months since. " Lahoire was a General of Brigade, and one of Gen. More ni's great favourites, having former- ly belonged to his Staff. Whtn this Generel was arrested in 1804, Lahoire, in company with Fres- nieres, Moreail's Secretary, fk" d to Germany, hav- ing been accused of being implicated in the conspiracy of Pichegru, Georges, & c. He return- ed to France about three years ago, but was no: restored to his rank. All these men were the friends of Fouche, and as that Ex- Minister is now in Paris, who knows what his fate may be?" ELECTIONS. A Gottenburgh Mail has arrived in London, bringing accounts from Petersbnrgh to the 14< th tilt. Nothing material, however, is communicated from the neighbourhood of Moscow. A dispatch from Gen. Wittgenstein, under date of the 25th of September, mentions, that j the troops nhder hi.- , n . na. id were incessantly employed in harassing the enemy. ' His cavalry ' had been detached on different expeditions in the ; rear of the enemy, in all of which they had been j successful. Gen. Wittgenstein more particularly ; notices an expedition which had been sent to clear j the circles of Gorodesk and Plosk from the ene- ' ray, which had been eminently successful, the ; enemy having been driven out of the circles, and ;; their magazines destroyed. Several of the ene- ! my were killed, and some made prisoners. In jl one affair alone, the enemy are stated to have i lost 400 men killed in action, or in the pursuit, i and one Lieut.- Colonel, two captains, two Com miss tries of war, and 184 privates made prisoners . j — The loss on the Russian side was ni « e Cossacks I killed and 35 woun led. From the destraftion of fheir magazines, the second division of the enemy's j light cavalry is said to be totally destitute of provi- sions, and the corn for the Bavarian division is obliged to be collefled from the other side of the Dwina. We are likewise informed by an article in the St. Petersburg]] Gazette of the 2d, that the peasants in the rear of the French have begun to j take up arms, and that in some instances they have been successful in defending their villages against the enemy. In the winter season a war of the peasantry against the invaders, could it be made hniversa , might be attended with the most im- purtant consequences. French Papers to the 29 h ult. have arrived, containing the Twenty- third Bulletin of the Grand Army, dated at Moscow on the Jj'rfi. The'se Papers, as will be seen from our extraffs, an- nounce a faft of considerable political importance, namely, a CONSPIRACY in PA RIS, having appa rently for its objeft, the overthrow of the preset) t Government. The leaders of the Conspiracy were three Ex- Generals, MALLET, LAHOURIE' and GUIDAL. It appears that a General Lahorie, the zealous friend of Moreau, with two others, named M-^' et and Guidal, headed the three parties, which at the same instant attacked the residences of the Minis, ter of Police, the Prefeft of Paris, and the Military Commandant ( for it is pow a garrison town) of that capital. Their followers were officers and others of the National Guards; a fa< 2 in itself pretty strongly evincing the regular organization of the scheme, which, according to private letters is very reasonably believed to extend through many Departments of the Empire. Savary, the soi- disant Duke of Rovigo, Chief of the Spies and Judicial Assassins of Paris, a post for which he is eminently fitted'by charafler and abilities, was enabled to suppress the explosion of this plot, and to arrest the thiee leaders above- mentioned \ the Duchess of Montebello." We are extremely happy at having it in our power' to announce an important improvement which tias taken place in the P « ! t- Office Depart- ment, so far as !- t concerns this town and neigh- bourhood. . In consequence of an application to Mr. Lee-, from the Merchants of Belfast, he has direfted the Post- Master here, upon all occasions when- it is pra< 5ticable< to open the Office for de. livery of letters by the Dublin Mail at a quarter bef ire one o'clock ; and to continue receiving let- ters> to be dispatched by the Mail of that d< y, till halt- past two. - - " Public notice has been given, that- the fees of the different classes of the College of Edinburgh, are in future to be raised as follows:— The Professors of Humanity, Greek, Mai hematics and Logic, who wei; e formerly entitled to a fee of two guineas, are in future to have three; arrd those otjier Professors who forcneriy received three, are in future to charge four guineas. On Sunday, about three o'clock, the body of a male child, three weeks old, was discovered in a ditch in a lane leading to the New Bridge in Ballymacarrett ; it was discovered by some children who saw one hand above the water; on examination of the bodv, it . appeared, that tats had disfigured it very much, and a stone had been tied to the neck. We sincerely hope that the unnatural mother or perpetrator of this deed will be brought to justice. Lieut.- Gen. Sir John Doyle, K. B. is appointed to the command of a Spanish brigade. There is now on board the Diomede a man taken going into a French port, in a smail boat, haying a four- gallon cask full of guineas on board. Among the Members who have been elected for England and. W. Jes, there are 120 whs did not sit in the 1 ist Parliament. It is n ported ' hat it is the intention of Govero- ment, as soon as Parliament meets, to bring in a Bill to confiscate all the estates in the West India islands, of those persons who are resident in Fi ance, ' Denmark, and Holland.-- This - legislative mea- sure will include the extensive properties of Ma- dame Bmaparte in Martinique, and of Count j Schemmelmar in Santa Croix, as well as various j others to a great amount. It i « said to be intend, j ed to appropriate the sums that may arise from ; the sale of these estates, toivards the reimburse- ment of those individuals who have had property confiscated in France, D- nmark, and Holland. A circular letter to the Medical Officers of the Militia . regiments in Portsmouth garrison, has made known to them, that upon their volunteering to serve in the army in the Peninsula, they will have permanent rank. On the morning of Friday the 16th October, ! a sloop belonging to Campbeltown, with a cargo ; of herrings from the North Highlands, was wrecked on the south coast of Kintyre. The hull of the vessel was entirely lost, but, by . he: timely assistance and great exertions of Captain Wallace of the Prince of Wales Revenue cutter, the- whole of the herrings and the vessel's mate- rials were saved. Captain, Wallace is entitled to great praise for the prompt and ready assist- ance he gave, and it is to the exertions of him and his crew, that the owner is indebted for the safety of so much of his property.

The hope of Erin sickens— her Harp half- reviv- ed frnm its inglorious slumbers, feels once more the cold stupor of neglect steal over its chords of fire ; and our last, venerable minstrel, is drooping over the grave. Pent is his form of age : furrow, ed are his reverend brows: his temp'es are thinned by the blasts of Adversity ; artd the snows of Time fall thick on his shrinking shoulders. Thus have vou seen CROMLA OF CAVES * lift its rocky head over MOILINA'S plains, when the binmal winds stripped naked its uneven forehead, and threw its snowy redundance behind in ridgy profusion on its green declivities. O'NEILB,- unfriend d as the country whose Harp he strings— O'NEILE, the honour of our land, still holds that heavenly in- strument, which national indifference, and adverse fate have assigned to everduring torgetfulness. The Harp is dnotped to be silen'— our sweet music rrustjdie— the dear recorder of former evepts— the oracle ofvthe lales of old. , and the inspirer of our joys, ^ nd the softener of oar woes; mils: lose existence ! Oh, Erin ! oh, my country*! wbtVe is thy patriotism ? and is our ancient spirit dead ? else, why this apathy— this absence of feeling ? this doll insensibility and want of thought ? Sons o: Belfast ! why do you lose yoor fame ? To re vive the Harp, the honour » ' as reserved for you ; but your efforts have proved fruitless ! you might haVe rousfcd our'muric fism destruction ; vet you wanted eithej patriotism, perhverar^ r, or the n: eans to effeCt the laudable purpose ; for the hoary Pi ofessor O'Neile, is at present without pupil, salary, or sub- sistence! A benevolent public; the refore, must soon extend its bounty to the ill- requited Bard, or else his silent necessities cannot* long' avoid its natural duty, by giving a solicitous voice to his necessary wants.— You who instituted a " HARP SOCIETY," and courted the venerable O'Neill from another part of the kingdom, to accept of a salary for as- sisting the restoration of our eipiring music ; why did you baffle his hopes and disappoint his expec- tations, by withholding from one so dependent On his profession for support, the well- earned reward of his eminent services ? Sons of Belfast! ^ o not forget that you have been candidates for, ancUiave already received green wreaths of the/ ait est fame, for reviving our dying, mitisirelsy : then why should you permit public- censure and just reproach to sully, nay, perhaps, eternally blight the flowers which compose them for neglefting the Harp, and treating ungenerously the worthy— ihe aged Pa triarch ; the absolute master of our nation's lyre. He confided much in your honour— he left his foimer haunts—; he endeared places of his frequent • visitation— the halls of noblemen, and the palaces of ancient princes, to promote your wishes; he threw hipiself entirely on your bounty, like a re. ducing M" r. arcb trusting all to a faithful few ; he left the friends of his early days, ( in person, but not in love,) for you ! Ah ! how shall he return to those fiieuds again in greater distress than they had ever bttore found him ; how will they exclaim against your instability and misconduft, for suf- fering the Son of Milesius, to leave your town a friendless wanderer. Members of the Harp So- ciety ! return to your thinking ! do not peimit the sacred relic of our departing music, to forsake the precinCts of Belfast; fot the 1' ays will come, when you must regret any inattention to the glo- rious task you have under • ken ; and oh ! have it to say, that you cherished with assiduity, the last hours of Erin's greatest Bare. I remain, Townsmen, most respectfully yours, AUGUSTUS. Belfast, October 5, 1812. The Cave- Hill, according to our ancitrt poets.

Ar a General Meeting of the Grocers of Dublin, the Following Sk - tch of a Petition to Parliament, was presented by their Counsel, Mr. Finlay. It is now under the consideration " f most of the high Parliamentary Characters of Ireland, whether con- nected with Government or Opposition : the Mem- bers for the City, County, and College, the ore. sen and la: e Secretaries, Chancellor of the Exche- quer, & c. kc. A Deputation waited on Mr. Peel and Mr. Poole, and were received in the most sa- tisfactory manner. The case contained in the Pe- tition is curious and interesting. It has been resolved, that a Clause should be added, praying that Petitioners may be heard by their Counsel, at the Bar of the House, in support of this Petition, and Mr. Finlay has been selected for that duty. Your petitio « ers must humbly beg nermission to mpress on the good sense and good feeling of this Hon. Hotise, that. " to increase the revenue bv in- creasing the number of publicans," is a b id re ison for a false fact— a principle which your consideration and your clemency must combine to reject— which can- not conduce to increase your revenue, nnd which ought to be rejected even if it could. Your petition- ers therefoie anxiously hope and htimbly piav :— That this twofold hardship from these two stntutc- s affecting them, as retailers of spirituous liquors, the first annulling their just debts, and the second con- tracting fair trade, may appear to you as they appear to them, unreasonable, severe and impolitic— and that your justice will incline you to remedy a hardship which affects an extensive and reputable class of the community. Aid i/ our petitioners rvill ever pray. Octobtis, 1812; To the Rigkt Honourable and Honourable tli* Knights, Citizens and Burgesses of tii* » United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned licensed grocers, of the city and suburbs of Dublin, on behalf of themselves and the grocers of Ireland, HUMBLY SIREWETH,— That your petitioners are. li- censed to exercise the business of grocers, and also to retail spirituous liquors. That the individaals of this description in the city; and suburbs ) f Dublin, alone, exceed the number of seven hundred. That the amount of their licenses, in the single capacity of re- tailers of spirits averages annually 30,000/. That *> retailers of spirituous liquors, your petitioners are af- fected by two statutable severities, which they submit as deserving attention and relief from • : nd equity of this Honourable House- That the first se- verity springs from a clause in the 45th, and the se- cond from ore in the 47th of the King. They sht^, that by a clause in the 45th of the King, it is enacted that " no vender of wine, spirit- " uous liquors, or other liquois, therein recited, shall " recover in his action at law, any debt contracted " for'suci) liquois, if such liquors have been vended " in quantities less than the value of c20s. each time." They shew that under the above clause any man may take from any vender any quantity of svine, or spirit- uous liquors, less than the value of 20, s. and may re- peat such order, for such quantity, as often as he pleases, every day, and for as many years as he can get credit, and the vender cannot recover any thing in law for such debts, from such consumers. They submit that the majority of orders from the ma- jority of their customers in the above articles, are for quantities less than the value of twenty- shil- lings, and of that description, which by this clause, are thus made ii recoverable in law- That the Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench has ruled and en- forced this clause. That thr greater portion of thrir book debts in the above articles are thus nullified, ind trade is injured, because, that confidence is weak- ened, under which the vender could put trust in the consumer. They submit that this hardship is not confined to this city, but extends to all large towns in this island— that it is not confined to the class of gro- cers, but equally extends to publicans, and all who sell liquors by less quantities than the value of 20s.— This hardship they suffer in common with publicans ; the second hardship they suffer as contra distinguish- ed from publicans. Your petitioners shew, that by the 47th of the King, material and severe distinction was enacted, between the grocer and the pub- lican, respecting the retail of spirituous liquors. — In the 47th of the King, session 2d— chapter 12th. Section 14th.— It is thus enacted—" Provided always " that it shall not be lawful for any such grocer, & c. " to sell any spirituous liquors, wine, beer, & c. in any " quantity less than two reputed quarts—- nor sell any " spirituous liquors, wine, beer, & c. to be consumed " in the house." They submit that by these clauses they are excluded from the entire business of retail: it is taken from the grocer and given to the publican, and yet the grocer is taxed by his license, equally with the publican. They submit that whether it be the object of this act to improve the revenu? of the crown, or the morals of the people, neither object is attained, both are defeated. That the public revenue and public morality are injured together. That the revenue is injured, because the retail of spirituous liquors in quantities less than two quarts, constitutes in fact, the entire business of retail— the prohibition must operate to the grocer, as a prohibition against retail altogether. Thus all the grocers must be ex- cluded from the trade. Giving the retail to the publican exclusively, can- not increase the issue of licences, for the publican must buy licence at all events, but it must materially diminish the issue of licences, for the grocer can no longer have a motive to purchase : it must exclude the grocers from the retail business, and by their ceas- ing to take out license for spirituous liquors, the in- come of the revenue in Dublin and its suburbs alone, must be lessened by 30,000/. annually, and so propor- tionably through all the large towns of Ireland. This tponopoly may increase the number of publicans, but it cannot increase the number of licensed publicans with a rapidity necessary to counterbalance the considerable and instant dedication produced by excluding the grocers from the trade, and even if it could, a ques- tion must arise with a provident and moral legislature — whether an immediate and certain income from a solvent and defined portion of the community, ought to be resigned for a remote and precarious expectation, from a less solvent, moie fluctuating, and undefined class. Whether it be wise to encrease the class of pub- licans— whether it would not be benevolent to diminish them. Whether the interests of the poor he consul - ed, by excluding the consumer of spirituous liquors from the shop of the grocer, where he might buy his liquor cheap, and sending him to the. tap- room of the puohcan, where he must buy it dear. Whether his health would be improved, by excluding him from the grocer, where he could buy his beverage better ii quality, and sending h m to the publican where l. e must buy it worse. Whether his morals would be improved by excluding such purchaser from houses of regular habits, where he must behave decently, and sending him io houses of less regular habits, where he may act riotously— and finally, whether the p, o- iperty or tranquility of large towi. s be coustilted, by multiplying the vulgar opportunities, and midnight accomodations for inebriety, extravagance, and vice. LONDON FASHIONS FOR LADIES. WALKING Dasts —- Short pelisse of deep lilac, shot with whire, back broader tbjin ilv- V werr worn last month, and on each hip a Spanish but- ton. It is made with a collar up to the throat, and trimmed round wi: h rich fur ; sleeves long and loose, with a fur at bottom to form a cuff, rather shorter in front than behind, an I two Spa- nish buttons are placed just ar the bottom of the pelisse in front, which fastens with a loop crossing one from the other. The bosom is ornsmented n the same manner ; a belt of cmbr- dored rib- band round the waist, and a gold clasp in front. A bonnet of the ' ame materials as the pelisse, crown a helmet shape, front very small, and a wreath of laurel round it; three white feathers are olaced at the b;;;' c c- f the bonnet, and fall oyer the front; broad ribbaid, same as bonnet, is pinned under the chin. The hair is brought very low at the sides, and a single curl on the forthe id. Buff gloves, and dark brown kid boou. Large silver bear muff. EVENING Disss— Round dress of cambric muslin, cut low in the neck, demi- trairi and long ileave?, waist- something shorter than they have been worn; very low in the neck, and trimmed round the bosom with a scalloped lace, which fall* over, and is put on broad as the bosom and narrov* at the shoulders. Hat of Pomona- green satin, turned up in front, and low on each <, ide of the face. A Spanish button and loop in front, and a long white ostrich feather, which falls to the right side. Shawl of the same materials as the hut, thrown over the shoulders carelessly, and its esfe. t left to the taste of the wearer, the two end*, which fail in front, are finished with amber silk tassels, and trimmed to correspond, H. iir dressed! very full at the sides, and parted in front. Pomona slippers. White spangled fan, and white kid gloves. GINERAL OBSERVATIONS— The colours are various, but light ruby, purple, dark fawn, deep rose colour, and dark blue, are most piavelent ; for evening, dark blue trimmed with white, and fawn trimmed with blue, are very general. In jewellery, coloured stones are still worn, but gold ornaments are very general: we have also noticed clasps for the waist of mother of pearl. Halt boots still maintain their estimation, but they are now \ v » rn laced behind, which has a very pretty effect. Slippers are slashed across the foot ; if black they are slashed with blue or pink, if white with scarlet. Fans continue the same size as last ljionth Lace veils in large rich patterns are much worn, both in black and white, in the evening as shawls, in the morning thrown over a cap.—( La Belle Assemblee.) COMMERCIAL. The following letter has been received by the Pre- sident of the Chamber of Commerce. ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, OCTOBER 29, 1812. SIR, My Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty not thinking it expedient in the present circumstances of the war, to grant ( except in very special cases) licences for ships to sail without convoy ; but being at the same time, anxious to afford to the trade of the country every possible protection and ficility, which the othe'i, pressing demands for the naval force will permit, com- mand me to express to you their wish, that the mer- chants of the several ports in the Bristol and Lish channels, as wtil as of Gieenock and all other ports, the shipping of which could rendezvous at Cork, should communicate and cansult together, and favour me, for their Lordships information, with their opi- nion as to the several periods which may be consider- ed, with relation to their general interests, as the most convenient and proper for tbe sailing of convoys from Cork to the different potts of the world, with which the commerce of the above- mentioned ports may t> e connected. Their Lordships command me, therefore, to sug- gest to you the expediency of an early communication amongst the trade on this important subject, and they trust that the merchants, considering tin pressing exi- gencies of the public naval service, will endeavour ( whether they shall desire to fix the convoys at stal- ed times, or on the assemblage of a given number of vessels) to limit their demands as much as possible, and to enable their Lordships to economize, in as great a degree as may be consistent with an adequate, protection of the trade, the naval means of the coun- try.— I am, Sir, your very humble seruant, J. W. CllOKKR, Friday se'nnight, came on at Old Bailey, Lon. don, the trial of seven persons accused of stealing from a vessel on the river Thames, ten talcs of silk, value 2500/. and two cases of feathers, value - 20;./., One of them was master of a hoy, another was clerfc to an attorney, and five of them were employed on the river, & c. The trial having continued till eleven o'clock at night, Baron Thompson, the presiding judge, said that it would be necessary for the Court to adjourn till next day, as the prosecutors had forty more wi'nessess to examine, and the prisoners, he understeod, had as many.— The Jury were theiefore conducted to an adjacent lodging, and locked up till next day.
