On the re- election of Lord COCHRANE as Mem- ber ( with Sir F. BURDETT) for Westminster, his Lordship addressed the following Letter to his Constituents : To the Electors of Westminster. GENTLEMEN— Being unable to convey in words the sensations I experience in reflecting on the manner in which you have returned me to Par- liament, I shall leave it to you who are capable of such acts, to estimate my feelings. Permit me, however, in acknowledging the receipt of your letter of the 10th instant, and transmitted to me through your Committee, to trespass a little on your attention, to offer my congratulations on the effect which has already been produced by the example set by you on a former occasion, to the electors of the United Kingdom— and to anticipate, that on every fu- ture recurrence to the elective franchise, the noble principles for which you are contending will be felt more strongly, and that " the people, rousing from their apathy," will imitate the city of West- minster in the purity of their elections. In this view of the subject. Gentlemen, I can- not but congratulate you on the recent exercise of the royal prerogative by the Prince Regent ; and being fully convinced that dissolutions of Parliament contribute to the emancipation of the Crown, even more ( in the present state of the re- presentation) than to the liberty of the subject, I confess that I am not one of those who anticipate that the late constitutional measure will be fol- lowed by a breach of the law. Gentlemen, no part of the cant of the times seems to me more absurd and hypocritical, than the declamation by party men against what they term the overwhelming influence of the crown," when the fact is notorious to us all, that the rul- ing faction in Parliament seize the offices of state, and share them amongst themselves. If a doubt as to this truth is entertained by any one, let him reflect on the language of the parties themselves, " Such an Administration cannot stand." And why, Gentlemen ? Not " because the royal pro- tection has been withdrawn, but because a suffi- I cient number do not agree as to the division of ! the spoil. What motive has the Crown for sup- porting scandalous abuses that are hostile to the interest of the public ? As far as the question regards those who fatten on the plunder of their country, it is needless for me to put it. Our li- berties in these days are not in danger from vio- lent and open exercise of regal authority— such \ acts, being free from the deception practised by " the mock representatives of the people, would not i be tolerated for an instant. No, Gentlemen, it is by the House of Commons alone that the Constitution is subverted— the prerogatives of the Crown usurped— the rights of the people trampled upon. Gentlemen, I shall not attempt to enumerate the decisions of the late House of Commons that will stamp indelible disgrace on the memory of the principal actors, who cannot escape from the the contempt and execration of posterity, like the nameless individuals who composed their corrupt majorities. The ejects, howsver, of the system of corruption can be more briefly stated— the pro- longation of war— the increase of the national debt— the depreciation of our currency— the dis- appearance of our coin— the stagnation of cur commerce, and the consequent unaxampled em- barrassment oi our manufacturers.

BENJAMIN EDWARDS, Executor. Bridge- End Glass- Works,? Belfast, Nov. 9, 1812 J , he charges a fee ! I am aware that I have trespassed longer alr.- ndy on your attention than I ought to have done, ha t the pure principles on which you conduced th » eleflion allowed me to address you personally : however, as this opportunity did not occu » -, you will, I trust, forgive my adding an extract from a statement which I made two years ago in tha House of Commons, on the subjeCl of the Navv Estimate, with a view to contrast the reward.^ granted for different hinds of services. Gentlemen, it appears on the pension list of the navy, for the year 1810, that " Thirty- one Com- missioners, Commissioners' wives, and clerks, have £ 3,899 more amongst them than is paid to all the wounded Officers of the navy of England ! Thir. teen daughters of Admirals and Captains, some of whom fell in the service of the country, have amongst them all, from the gratitude of the nation, a sum less than a Commissionei's widow ! viz. 4 Daughters of the gallant Captain Courtney, each per an. num .510, 10/. t ditto of Admiral Sir A. Mitchel- J 2 ditto of Admiral Epworth I 1 ditto of Admiral Keppel... >£ 25 each. 1 ditto of Captain Mann I 4 ditto of Admiral Moiriarte J « " Captain Johnson receives £ 45 a- rear for the loss of an arm— and poor Lieutenant Chambers who lost both his legs, gets £ 80, whilst the Cleik*' of the Ticket office retires on £ 700. " To speak less in detail, 32 Flag Officers, 22 Captains, 50 Lieutenants, 180 Masters, g/ J g„ r. geons, 23 Pursers, 91 Boatswains, 97 Gunners, 202 Carpenters, 41 Cooks, cost the country a£ 4,0i! fi less than the nettproceeds of the sinecures of Lord's Arden, Camden, and Buckingham !—. All the su- perannuated Admirals, Captains, and Lieutenants, have but £ 1,012 more amongst them than Earl Camden's sinecure alone I All that is paid to tha wounded Officers of the British navy, and to the wives and children of those dead or killed in ac- tion, does not amount by £ 2lh to as much as Lord Ardeu's sinecare ! The Marquis of Buckingham's sinecure will maintain the whole victualling departments at Chatham, Dover, Gibraltar, the Downs, Heligo. land, Malta, Cape of Good Hope, and Rio Ju neiro, and leave 36,5466 in the Treasury. Three of these comfortable sinecures would maintain the Dock- yard establishments at Portsmouth and Ply- mouth— and the sinecures and offLes executed wholly by deputy, would more than maintain the ordinary establishment of all the royal dock- yqr ls in the kingdom. Calculating at tlie rtte of al- lowance made for Captain Johnston's arm, Lotd Arden's sinecures are equal to the value of 1022 Captains' arms, or, by poor Lieut. Chambers's pension, to 482 pair of Lieutenants' legs H !" Comment is unnecessary. Such, Gentlemen, is the reward for long and faithful services} that for exertion, I have already shewn you. Thus the war lingers on, the supplies for which are voted by those who are interested in its con t- nuance— nor will it ever be terminated success- fully in pitched battles, by the military force . if England against ihe resources of France. Ev. a on the supposition ® f perfeCt equaliiy, mire m a would perish before the contest could be decided, than England now maintains on the Continent- could we supply the deficiency ? Gentlemen, to shew you ihat there is no hop » from a change of pary, unless a reform in tha Commons House of Parliament shall previou- ly t ike place, " the pensions given by the Jate Wh g Administration to Commissioners, Clerks, and others, whom they forced out of office to make room for their friends, amounted in 13 mouth* to £ 1508 more than the present Administration have given away in the three years that havj elapsed since."— i. e. up to the year 1810. The example of the industrious bee demon- srrates, by the laws of Nature, that the drone s not to live at the expence of the community, no . withstanding what the Whigs have said of sin - cuies being held by tenure, equal to that of fre - hold property.

The Royalist sloop of war, Cantain Downie, on the 8d instant, boarded a ship going from Ostend to Bourdeaux, the roaster of which reported, " that an account had heen received at Ostend, just be- fore he sailed, that ' he French were driven from Moscow, and that . Bonaiarte was almost out of Russia. Thus it is now berond the possibility of doubt that the recent disturbances in France were occasioned bv the reverses in the North. A mili- tary despot, like Bonaparte, can only count upon the submission of mankind to his authority during the continuance of his prosperous career. Every ariival of individuals from the Continent, since the commencement of his monstrous usur- pation, has incontestlb'y proved that tf- rror was one of the most formidable weapons which he employed to keep under the population of France. His military successes, and his barbarous system of carrying the seat of war out of the territory of those who owned him for thpir Sovereign, adde- J to their antipathies against the frightful state '{ pnarchy which preceded his elevation to the throne, may also have rivetted the attachments, or rr rather the acquiescence, of numbers to his sway j Vut amid all this apparent tranquillity, there has been a spirit of rebellion secretly stirring among Iiis subjefls, which only requires events like those which are now passing in the North, to fan it into flame.—( Star.) We have seen a letter that arrived this morning in town, via Corunna, which states, that Marquis Wel- lington still continued to retrograde with the main ;: rmv, and had on the 31st ult. already fallen back beyond Valladnlid ; the enemy, in great force, fol- lowing liis movements with great rapidity. The following particulars of the late insurrection at Paris, are communicated by a gentleman recently arrived from Paris:— " The three Ex- Generals, Mallet, Guidal, and Lahorie, already sentenced and executed, endeavour ed to bring about a new revolution in Paris. " They made - se of a facitiotis Scnatus Consultum, by means of which they succeeded in deceiving the garrison of Paris. Having gone on 22d October, at four o'clock in the morning, to the barracks occupied by the first division, and the dtagoons of Paris, they read to them a Proclamation, in which they inform- ed them of the death of the Emperor, on the 7th, and ordered them in the name of the Regent to follow them. " The troops believing what was told them, obev- ed their orders, and suffered themselves to be led to dif- ferent po? ts, where they relieved the guards ; and at seren in the morning, presented themselves at the Mi- nister's of the General Police, and at the Prefect's of the Police, both of whom they arrested, and carried them to the prison of Laforce, under an escort of 300 nii- n. • « Mean. vhile another division proceeded to the liouse'of the Commandant of Patis, Gen. Hullen, ( not S'avary). Mallet informed him. that he was no longer Commandant; and on Hullen hesitating to resign his command, a pistol was discharged at him by Mallet, which mortally wounded him in the head. " Mallet next proceeded to the Chief of the Etat- Majer of Paris, to arrest him; but this officer ( who appears to have been apprised of his danger) had se- vens! offici- is in his apartment, who, proving too powerful for Mallet, arrested him ; they then har- rangued the troops who followed him, and having suc- ceeded in pursuading them that Mallet was a conspir- ator, and that the Emperor was not dead, the whole laid down their arms. The troops cantoned at Ver- sailles and Gros Bois were now sent for, and the bar- riers haying been shut, the conspirators were at rested. " At. two o'clock the Minister of tlie Police and the Prefect wer ™ liberated, the officers of the first di vision were arrested, and the troOps sent out of Paris. " On the first report of the Emperor's death, which the conspirators spread all over Paiis, the Bank was surrounded by a multitude, who endeavoured to ex- change their noles for specie; but, in a short tinie, order and tranquility were restored, and every thing quiet." A Gentleman who arrived in town yesterday, from Paris, which he left a few days ago, states, that the Ex Minister, Joel Barlow, had set out for the head- quarters of the French Army, in or- der to solicit Bonaparte to furnish the American Govemment- wkh sail ol the line and 36 fri- gates, to be manned with American seamen. He adds, that the agitation in Paris still continues, and previous to his leaving Morlaix it was reports ed, that Savary ( General of the Police) had been killed. . Preparations are making, with activity, for the F. arl of Moira's voyage to India, in the Seahorse fri- gate, Mr. Tierney and Mr. Peter Moore are both mentioned as likely to have high situations in the new Government. They are both men of superior talents • for business ; and the Iptter, from a long residence in India, is, in a peculiar degree, conversant with its in- terests. Mr. T. Moore, the Irish Anacreon, we under- stand, proceeds with Lord Moira to India. HOVSF OP PEERS.— The repairs in the House of Lords are conduced on a grand scale. The work men are busily employed in beautifying it Ur the reception of his Royal Highness the Re- , pfnt. The Throne is to be fitted up with suitable etyle. The Woolsack and Seats are to be re- co- vered with new - scarlet cloth ; the bronze and chandeliers polished; the netting laid down a- fresh ; the tapestry, ( Spanish invasion) consider- ed the finest specimen in the kingdom, to be pio- perly cleaned, and the ventilation arranged. A few days ago, immediately after the late high tide, was discovered undeT the cliffs between Lyme- Regis and Charmouih, the complete petrefaflion cf a crocodile, seventeen feet in length, in an im- perfefl stale. It was dug out of the cliffs nearly on a level with the sea, about one hundred feet be- low the surface of the earth. LIGHT GUINEAS AGAINST HEAVY GUINEAS.— A Gentleman in the countiy sent to his banker in the City, a parcel of gold of the above descriptions, with dirtffions to pass the value to his credit in account. The banker credited his correspondent with the heavy guineas at the rate of £\, 1/. each the value by law established ; but the light ones he sen; to a goldsmith, who returned for them bank- njfit^, at the rate of £ 1, each. FRENCH PAPER?. PARIS, Nor. 6 — On Sunday, the 1st, her Ma- jesty th" Empress, after Miss, gave an audience at St. Cloud. His Majesty the King of Rome, had just arrived in a carriage from Paris, whither he had rode so far as the Rue Richelieu, in ' he forenoon, and returned in good spirits, bv the Bois de Boulogne. The Arch- Chancellor of the Em- pire preceded the Conservative Senate Deputation, whose happv province it was to read to the mo. ther of the French people, the copy of the suppli. catory address transmitted in the middle of last ' month, to his Majesty the Emperor, inflating his ' return. Lr. ud cties of " Long live Napoleon," ac- companied by frequent discharges of ordnance at the regalar intervals, gav* » to this haopy proceed- ing a charafter the most cheering. The following is the address read by the Arch- Chancellor:— " SIRE— Fame, the attendant of your exploits, has poured on the attention of your people, the full voice of your triumphs. " Like the sons of the earth, sown by Cadmus of old, the minions of Alexander, subdued self- immolaters as they are, no longer leave to the Eagle of France, the ungracious work of glutting itself with conquest, satiated as it must be by the carnage of Srsolensk, Mojai- k, Borodino and the once palace of the Czars. Its wings overspread the Empire of the perverse Alexander :— their sha- dow covers the realms. Viftory strews her lau- rels beneath yonr feet. From the Kremlin of Mos- cow, to the ratio of Madrid, your soldiers have covered themselves with glory. The day that saw the revived sun of Austerlitz rise, saw that of the ill- fated Alexander set. " Pardon, Sire, the supplications of your peo. pie. They love your fame— they exult in your conquests. " But, Sire, to be brave is to be merciful ! Let || the Fathers of the French people shew that the hand that can crush can soothe; enough of gliry is thine ! Wreak not your vengeance on a wretch- ed empire enslaved hy a Tyrant at once Weak and arbitrary. Though the Monatch may err, yet the endurance of the punishment direfled against his head, falls on that of his every subjefh Let it be the boast of your People, Sire, that in the eause of humanity they ventured to stay their Monarch in his career of viftory, and to say, in intreaty, to the irresistible— return ! " Yes, Sire !— delight the country by whom yru are revered, by revisiting its bosom ? To the gloom of his native winter leave the dull and dreary ftuss: let not his darkness be eradicated by the gladden- ing beams emanating from the countenance of our Emperor, our Friend, our Father! Honour not by destroying him, the matricida! incendiary of his native land, but bless by your return, 52,000,000 of yonr European people. " Think, Sire, for a moment, chastisement is alone withheld from the enthusiast, Wellington, in respect for your absence ; the hour of your re- turn is fixed on for his insolence receiving the check so long withheld from him and his band of madmen. Misuse not the time which might be employed in otherwise crowding prosperity on your people, by subjugating such discreditable and savage opponents.

An important battle is expefled, in which we trust the military genius of his Lordship will again be pre- eminently sue- | cessful. No further official intelligence has arrived from Russia; but the account of the retreat of the French from Moscow, is corroborated by private letters, which speak of the exultation of the Rus- sians as unbounded. The next news from this quarter must be of great importance. The Packet of to day had not arrived when this Paper was put to press j but by an express arrived in Dublin, we have the following anticipa- tion of the London Journals of Saturday the 14th ; BY EXPRESS. SECOND EDITION. Sun- Office, Three o'Clock. We stop the Press to state, that Government have just received Dispatches xfrom Colonel Bouike, dated Corunna, 8ch inst. They do net contain any intelligence direct from the Marquis of Wellington ; but Col. Bourke had received letters from, the head- quartets of the army,, which were dated on the 24- th ult. On that day the bead- quarters of the army were at Duenas, which, our readers will recollect, when the last accounts were received by the Fortunee, were the head, quarters of the eaeaiy. SPANISH PAPERS. CORUXUA, OCT, 29 Lord Wellington, know. ing of the junction of Soult and Suchet, and that they intended to make an excursion to Madrid, || for which purpose they had already arrived at ii Belmonte, marched fronT the neighbourhood of.| Burgos to reinforce Gen. Hill, and prevent any j fortunate result for the French. TOLEDO, OCT. 12.— Sonlt, with 13,000 infan- i try, and 7,000 horse, is approaching, and is al- ready in San Clemente ; but notwithstanding this, we are perfectly easy, as our forces are superior. Medico's horses are gone to join Penne and Mo- rillas, and Medico remains, ad interim, Governor of this place, with all his infantry, which he is en- deavouring to augment. MADRID, OCT. 19— The vanguard of Soult's army continued in Alvacete, under the orders of Drouet ; it is composed of 15,000 men, and has 1000 horse in La Geneta. The enemy seeing thJt the Castle of Chinchilla presented obstacles to their excursions, strength- ened its siege, in rfrder to take it by assault, without loss on their part. They collec'ed all the peasantry in the neighbourhood, and made them march before ; they made three attacks, but in vain, because they had neither made a breach in the Castle, nor filled up the fosse, the peasants nevertheless suffered considerably. On the 8ih, in the evening, a shell fell Iri the Castle, which wounded its gallant Goverm r and 50 men out of its valiant and small garrison of 200. This accident, and hiring lost 15 ^ r 20 men by the enemy's fi e the anterior days, obliged it to capitula- e on the 9' h. When the official" ac- count is received, we shall give the details to the public, which, according to the statements of an artillery man, do great honour to that unfortu- natie garrison.— Madrid Gazette, October 20. MADRID, OCT. 16.— A letter which we have seen from the head- quarters of the 2J and 3d ar- mies, dated the 11th inst. says, that Soult on'the 5th inst. marched for Calaspana ; the last divi- sion, which consisted of fromtfour to 6,000 men, with a considerable number of horse, were on the 3d before Caravaca. On the 7th an enemy's battalion of infantry and 300 horse, presented themselves within can- non shot of Penas de S. Pedro, and received some fire, to which they did not reply, but continued their march towards Tabarra. In this point there were on the same day 6 or 7000 men, which are supposed to be a part of Soult's and a part of Suchet's troops, who proceeded from Al- vacete to protect the passage of the former. It is thought that there is a corps of from 9 to 10,000 men, with a considerable quan'ity of ar- tillery, in Alvacete.. The enemy wish to mam- tain themselves in that point to facilitate the col- leftion of provisions. For the same pnroose, ano- ther enemy's corps of 400 infantry and 303 hotse scours the neighbourhood of Jorquera. We know that the public would be pleased by our giving intelligence of the movements and prq- gress of our armies. To their just demands we must reply, that the publication of certain military faffs do- not forward the military operations; the enemy might derive great services from it. We have received several Valencian Gazettes, and observe that the French say nothing of the po- sitions or movements of their armies. Will it not be time enough for us to inform them of what they do not know, when they instruft us ? For this reason we will content ourselves with saying, that the fears of some pusillanimous persons are un- founded and vain; the hopes of the secret agent, of the intrusive King, who disieminaie alarmss deserve the most severe punishment. We have force sufficient; we have Chiefs worthy of con- fidence ; we are secure. This is what we can an- nounce. MADRID, OCT. 17.;— The intrtsive King, who expefted to remain in Catalonia, and fix his resi- j dence in the capital of Arragon, has changed his 1 opinion, and is preparing to proceed to Pampe- luna. Is this city he can receive communication with more facility, and take measures with the Senate. Massena has ordered 50 pieces of the artillery brought from Castile to be collefled in San Domingo de Vittoria, and Orduna to be for- tified. Soult, obliged to change his direftion, has desisted from going to Valencia, and proceeding by Arracete to Rota and Villaneuva de Jara, in- dicates by his movements the crossing the Province of Cuenca, with the idea of marching to N varre by Arragon. To this change is attributed that of Joseph, and it is said that both, little satisfied with Suchet, are going to try their fortune with Massena. It appears that Gen. Hill has his head quarters iu Belmonte, from whence he dispatched advice to Lord Wellington and Gen. Ballasteros. We do not doubt but Soult intends paying us a visit, and of even making a bold movement to prevent the jun& ion of our troops with Gen. Hill. COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. The following Letter was ypsterdar received in this Town by the President of the Chamber of Commerce, from J. W. CROICER, Esq. " Admiralty- Office, \ 2th November, 1812. " SIR— My Lords Commissioners of the Ad- miralty having communicated with the Merchants at the several Western Ports interested in the West India trade, for the purpose of making an arrangement for the appointment of Convoys from Cork to the West Indies, I have it in com- mand from their Lordships to, acquaint you— That, with a view of meeting the general wishes of the Merchants, as far as may be practicable, as expressed in the various communications re- ceived from the Western Ports, they will appoint a Convoy to sail from Cork on the ISth of next month, or as soon after as thirty vessels shall have assembled ; another to put to sea on the 28th of January, or as soon after as twenty ves- sels shall be collected ; and another pn the 5th of March, or as soon as twenty vessels shall have assembled : but in case that number shall not have arrived by the 20th of the said Aionth, the last- mentioned Convoy is to put to sea the mo- ment wind and weather will permit, after that day, with the trade that may be then collected. " It being their Lordships' intention, in the present circumstances of the war, ndt to issue licences for ships to proceed without convoy, ex- cept in very special cases ; and their Lordships being desirous to afford every facility and pro- tection to the trade of his Majesty's subjects to Portugal, Spain, and Gibraltar, compatible with other important services, I have their commands to express to you their wish, that the Merchants of the several Ports in ' the Bristol and Irish Channels, as well as of Greenock, will commu- nicate and consult together, and favor me, for their Lordships' information, with their opinion as to the several periods which may be consider- ed, with relation to their general interests, as the most convenient and proper for the sailing of Convoys from Cork for those destinations ; and whether they desire that the said Convoys should be fixed at slated times, or on the assemblage of a given number of vessels, their Lordships con- fiding, that the Merchants will limit their requests as much as possible, to enable them to provide for the other important and increasing demands on his Majesty's Naval Service. " I am, Sir," & c. We have just received a sfatement from a Cor- respondent in Jamaica, upon th^ subject of- the I distress endured- bv a crew belonging to> a ship 1 • that was short of food and water. It states, that J for hineteen days the crew we're- without food, ; most of them died, and those who survived owed jj their lives to the Captain, who advised them ihV their extremity not to drink sak- water, a! s it was j evcessively noxious, but to dip in the sea thiplj I clad. By this prafiice the cravings of thirst an t t hunger were afluallv removed Jor some time! i and their- spirits were kept up under all ha hor- rihle circumstrwi. t- ec of their situation. I' is sup- posed that, hy diiping in. the sea, their bodies ab- sorbed through the pores as much pure wafer as nourished the vessels. A thick pla'e of. saline matter was formed like a pellicle upon the surface of their bodies, which they used to pick off in large pieces. On Saturday last, the Roman Catholic Board held a meeting at the nsnal place of assembling in Capel- street, at which, after some discussion, it was resolved to give a public entertainment to the Friends of Religious Freedom, without any limitation as to the number of the guests. A proposition was made to exoress the disap- probation of the meeting towards such persons of the Roman Catholic Body, as had, during the late Elections, supported Candidates professedly favourable to the present Ministry ; the ultimate decision upon which was, after some discussion, postponed to a future day that was specified. A letter from Canada to a Gentleman in this town, under date of the 28th Sept. says—" Yes- terday 600 Indians came down from St. Ridges to join the Cocknawaga Indians; thev are all encamped at St. Philips, about 16 miles from Montreal, and six from the other camp. I assti'e you to look at them, with their faces painted, their tomahawks and scalping knives, it would strike terror to the strongest heart. The American In- dians are all joining ours in . the. tipper Provinces, on account of General Harrison beating them back on the Wabash." EXTRACT OF A LETTER TO A MERCVNTIJ. B HOUSE IV BERRY, DATED QUEBEC 29TH SEPT. " We are in daily expectation of hearing of an engagement taking place on the lines to the. southward of Montreal, on which much will de- pend ; if we are successful, we think the cam- paign will end for the winter ; but, if itnfortu- our troops shall be obliged'to fall back, it is dffi- cult to say what may be the consequences, unles we receive reinforcements from home', which we anxiously look for." The division of the Russian fleet which was at Cronstadt, consisting of 11 sail of the line, be- sides frigates, sailed from thence on the 24th for England. The whole fleet, consisting of 18 sai- of the line and 12 frigates, will follow the examl pie— a noble demonstration, of the firmness of Russia, and of her relianee upon the honour and integrity of the British Government. It is conjectured, that Joseph Bonaparte has taken refuge from the bustle of hostility in Pam- peluna. Yesterday, his Grace the Lord Primate ar- I rived at the Donegall - Arms, on his way to Doriaghadee. The Marquis of Downshire also passed through town yesterday, on his way to Hillsborough, from Donaghadee. ROBBERY OF THE FI. Y. DROGIIEOA, NOV. 14.—- Between the hours of three and four o'clock this morning, the Newry up coach was stopped at the turnpike of Munleer, by 12 armed villains, who closed the gate, ft » d at thejc ' ach- man and guard, and wounded both—- they then rob- bed the passengers; and trom what we have leary « d, the villains must'h ive got Hear 1300/. Mr Waitern, of this, town, was in the coach, and lost his watch and money. The Belfast up coaqh was not x quarter of a mile before the fly. The robbers had horses, and left tijem in the haggard of a farmer, feeding on sheaf oats which they pulled from a stack. The gate- keeper was afraid to venture out of his hoyse. In consequence of he recent robberies of the Dublin antl Newry Fly, which tra » elled at night, the proprietors have determined ro commence run- ning it in Company with the Harp Coach, which starts from Newry, for Dublin, at 5 o'clock every morning; and from Dublin, at 7 o'clock each morning, for Newry. This regulation is to con- tinue unlfl four passenger coaches ( which arc in a state of forwardness,) are prtpaied, and which will Jaccompany the Mail between Newry and Dublin, each day.

To tie EDITOR of the BELFAST CHRONfCZR. SIR— Having seen in your Pmer of Wed" es- day last a paragraph, signed by Messrs. Ruthv^ n, Cumin?, Srnv'h, and Trotter, stating, the calling in of the Military at the late Elefti in for t! ii » town to have been unnecessary ; I beg to state, in contradiflion to those four Magistrates, the follow. ing facts • That i » i November, 1S06, a mob, consisting ef some hundreds of people, nine- tenths of whom were not Eleflors of ( he Borough, were ascpmb'ed in the streets at night, who, with sticks and stones, broke ihe windows of almost every oerson who supported Mr. Croker at that eleiffion, a'i'd ' he . same condnff was loo evidently to be apprehend- ed at the; late contest; fi- T on Sun lay night; pre- vious to ' he poll, a similar mob p- araHed he streets the greater part of the night, in the'most riotous and threatening manner, breaking the win- dows of some of the inhabitants, and throwing stones at some, which induced a nupiber of the most recpeflable people of the town to ca? T upin me, as a Magistrate, to adopt some means for the proteflion of their lives anfl properties ; decWi g, at the same timp, that th^ y had prepared fire- arms, and were determined to rerist any attack, similar to that made on their houses in J806. la consequence of this call I sent off ? n express to Lisburn for a party of dragoons, which arrive d just in time to prevent the most fatal consequence-, as the mob had assembled this night in still gror. et: numbers, collefied from very distant as well as contiguous places, insulting and menacing the- peaceable inhabitants in the most violent and ter- rifying manner. When those Magistrates stated their perfect tisfaflion with the tranquillity of the town, it ' would have been becoming in them not to h . ve. forgotten, that as I was walking quietly home about 10 o'clock at night, 1 was attacked bv this mob with paving stones, one of which knocked off my hat, and that in all probability I should have been murdered in the streer, had - nor a party of Dragoons come to my assistance ; a circumstance of which those gentlemen were informed. « •> far indeed, the partizans of Mr., Hawthorn may have grounds for their assertions, when fhey say that they apprehended no danger; becau- e it is a nri'o- rious fafl, that the attacks of the mob were uni- formly direfled against the other side. And I would ask Messrs. Cumine and Smylh, who re- side five or 6ix miles from Down, how tfiey coti'd take upon them to say any thing re pefling the- tranquillity of the town at night, when other Ma- gistrates, residing in its immediate vicinity, do not think proper to put their names to such a declaration.

The next letters are extremely interesting, from their relation to so particular a man as D- ivid Garrick : thev are inserted among the private letters to Mr. Woodfall in the first volume, and a fac- simile of them is also given at the beginaing of the third volume. A new and complete edition of the celebrated letters of JUNIUS has been published, with fac- similes of the hand- writing of the author, in his confidential, thoogh anonymons correspondence V'i'h Mr. WOOBFALL, the Printer ; and also fac- simile* of the hand- writing of all the distinguish- ed persons of the time, who were severally sus- pected of being the author.--- It was hoped, that this publication would decide the question which has so long been the subject of such anxious in. rqU'ry, as to who JUNIUS was. This publication, with all these curious documents annexed, do not*, however, enable us to come to a determination on that point, but they afford the means of bringing the future investigation within a more furrow compass, by ascertaining that so many of those tirho have been alternately named as the author, were not so in reality.—-. We subjoin several of the letters for the sake of the matter : for of the hand- writing we cannot, of course, give any imitation.

( Private ) « SIR— The last letter you printed was idle and improper, and I assure yon printed against my own opinion. The truth is, there are people about me whom I would wish not to contradiCt, and who would rather see Junius in the p ipers, ever » o improperly, than not at all. I wish it could be recalled. Suppose you werf to say— We have tome reason to suspect that the last letter, signed JU-.' MS, in this paperi was not written by the real Junius, though the observation escaped us at the time: or if you can j hi' off any thing yourself m " re plausible, you will j much oblige me, but viihout a positive a*>. ertion. !

Ii is in my power to make you curse the hour in which you dared to interfere with " JUNIUS." " I would send the above to Garrick direflly, but that I would avoid having this hand too com- monly seen. Oblige me then so much as to have it copied in any hand, and sent by the. penny post, ' ha* is, if you dislike sending it in your own writ- ing. I must be more cautious than ever. I am sure I should not survive a discovery three days, or if I did, tlr y would attaint me by bilk Change to the Somerset Coffee house, and let no mortal know the altera'ion. lam persuaded you are too ho- nest a man to contribute in any way to my de- struction.

I send you some more sheets. I think the paper is- not so good as Wheble's, but I may be mistaken— the type is good. The asper- sions thrown upon my letter to the Bill of Rights shall he refuted by publication. Prevail upon Mr. Wilkes to let you have extrafls of my 2d and 3d letter to him. It will make the book still more new. I would see them before they are printed, byt keep this last to yourself. " To Mr. Woodfall" " Private and particular."

I should study the temper of the people before I ventured on more anions.— 1 would consider the whole of the prosecution o( a iibel ol such importance as Junius, as ; trie piece, as one consistent plan of operations. After the usual loval oasts of ecrem ny, viz. rhe King, the Pi i c* Regenr, the Queen and Fa- mily, the City of London, & c. The Lord Mayor began by giving " his Ma. j, sty's Mi nisters, who had honoured him with their presence that day." The Earl of Liverpool, who was seated on the right hitnd of the late Lord Mayor, rose and returned thanks, and assured the. Company, that hi Majesty's Ministers felt it to be th tr duty to endeavour to deserve, and it was their most earnest wi- b to receive the approbation Of the Citizens > f London. The L r< i M tyor then guve " Ferdinand the 7th, ant! the gallant people of Spain." The Spa- nish Ambassador rote and bowed to the company, and Lord Vi- coum Castlereagh, in his name, ex- pressed his sincere thanks for the hon Ur done him. He felt m st sensib'y that tbe war in which the two nations were so cordially engaged, was a war in which tht pe. pl- of Great Britain felt an interest as iivcly » » those of Spain That it was I not a Writ of the Government, bat of the nations; and that it w< s not merely for Spain that they were fighting, but for ttie h tman race. He as. silted the Hall thai his Excellency participated in the feeling that had been so unequivocally pro- nounced hat day : and he was confident that the Spanish pe pie entered tully into the sentiment that thtir heart, nr. d best connexion and triend- sh'p, was Great Britain. " The Emperor of Russia, and success to the Russian War." Tljfi Rttssian Minister made his reverence, a > d Lord C. istlereagh, in his name, expressed his gra- titude for the manner in which th6 Emperor, whom he represented, had been honoured. He assured the Company that his Imp' rid Majes y was most firm in his resolution to withstand the invader of his territories— that he had the mosi undoubted persuasion of the loyalty arid valour of his people— arid the feeling that in the cour- e he was pursuing he had with him the heart and wishps, not only of every » ne of his own subjects, but of all eniigh'ened Eu: ope, He was also in- structed by his Excellency to say, that his Im perial Majesty was convinced that the true and permanent interest of his States was to maintain a perpetual friendship and connexion with Great Britain ; and which : he Noble Viscount said he hoped would be immortal. The Earl ot Liverpool begged leave to follow up the last sentiment of the Nobie Viscount's speech br a toast— " Perpetual friendship and connection between Russia and Great Britain." The Lord Mayor then gave— " The Ottoman Portt," The Ambassador raade his bow, and Lord Cas- tlereagh returned thanks in she name of Uie Su- blime Porte. ' The King of Sweden." was then given, aud the Minister also requested Lord Castlereagh to express his thanks. Several other toasts were given, aud the whole of the Gentlemen thus kep. together till the pro- per time to join the Ladies in the Drawing- room, when, after paying their re peCK to the Lady Mayoress, the Ministers withdiew. The Bail was opened by the Spanish Ambassa dor, and the Loid Mayor's second daughter.— The country danccs comnjeiiced to the tune ot Lord Wellington^ wh'ch gave additional sp rits to the whole company.

Its putural fins measure four feet six inches ; its dorsal fin, three feet and a half. Its tail is horizontal, and full eight feet wide. It has two smdl fins towards the tail, nearly opposite to each other ; and con- jeOural computation assigns to its total bulk the ponderous weight of five or six tons. The skin of this astonishing creature is, uniformly rough, of a dusky colour, but whiter towards the belly, and it apppars to have only one laree spinal hone from one ex'remity to the other. It is a fem. de, and the mnmmee are of a peculiar consirtiflion On opening one of them, the fisherman's hand was covered with milk. There are two fins concealed within the mamma, which each measure two feet si* inches. The oil of this fish, it is expeOed, will increase the profits of the fish- rmen in a very con- siderable de. gree ; they, therefore, intend disposing of the animal to the best bidder, before it reaches a putridinous state, and they can exhibit it HO longer. BRIGHTON, NOV. 10.— The enormous fish, was yesterday sold by the proprietors in the usu d way of their disposing of other fish ( commonly known by the name of Dutch Auction ;) it was put up at jgl. 50, and kept reducing £ 5 at a time, till it 1 came to £ 10, when it was purchased by Mr. Weller, who exhibited it during the day, and wlr'ch produced to him many pounds. The ; emolument which this animal has produced to the fishermen has been very large : we are assur- ed by the party that they have received between 2 and ae300. In the afternoon of yesterday hand bills, announcing that the fish would be opened this diy, were distributed round the to" n, and numbers of Gentlemen attended to wit- ness the operation. The fish, we are now perfedly satisfied, is the Squalus Maximus, or Basking Shatk, as described in The Philosophical Transactions for 1803, tndis also described in the B. itish Zoology, Vol. III. page 78. Upon opening this fish, the company present were much surprised at the enormous size of the liver, which consists of two lobes, measuring in le" gth upwards of il feet, each being 16 inches thick, and is supposed to weigh considerably above wo tons. An assay h « been made, and the oil proves to be of a very sutierioi qu tlity, yielding above eight quarts in ten of pure o 1. "- O.. XJ- JJ- I MISCELLANEOUS. The following extract from " Lloyd's History of the Seven Yeats War," will elucidate the plans of Bonaparte in his northern campaign. It is ex* tracted from that part of his work in which he treats of the frontiers of the European Powers : " On the Russian frontier towards Europe, the country on the Russian side of the Dwina is for the" most part covered with lakes, forests, marshes, & c. and of course is very thinly inhabit- ed. On all this frontier, an enemy can onlv ad- vance towards Riga, and from thence towards Petersburg, or towards Pleskow, which is tbe key into Novogorod and Moscow ; the loss of Pleskow, on the lake PeipUs. brought on that of the Swedish provinces. Had Charles the Twelfth been able to keep it, he might h: ive prevented the Russians from supporting themselves on the Nieva in Ingria, and by acting on their line from Moscow to Novogorod, have forced them to Twer, behind the Volga. This Pleskow is a most important post, it they ( the Russians) had a powerful enemy to contend with on that fron- tier, but the have nons ; for the Prusians, how- ever formidable, were they totally disengaged on the side of Germany, can never advance to the Dwina : their main fo ces are behind the Oder, and must be supported from thence, and by land, because the Prussian Monarch has no fleet The Russians can, first, send a fleet to ravage the coast from Memd to Stettin. Secondly, can ad- vance in front into Prussia, and occupy it b » fore the Prussians can send a fufficient army to pre vent it. Thirdly, they can send Considerable body of troops, particularly liirht troops, to act on the Prussian line from Konigsberg to the Vis- tula, and even to pass this river and advance to- wards the Warta. Such troops want no maga- i zines. " Smolerisko is fortified, but not so as t » be able to make any considerable resistance. This is the most imp ' rtant point on all the Russian frontiers; it is oniy 200 miles, from Moscow, through which the communications between Petersburgh and the southern provinces pass ; by occupying Moscow, the empire is overturned. It was through this pass ( draolensko) rhe Poles always eoteied Rus- sia, and for a long series of years contended with success against the Russians, and even set up an impostor on the Throne of that empire. Il Charles the Twelfth, being master of Poland, instead of going to Puttawa, had taken Smolensko, and from thence advanced to Moscow, victory would have given him that important place, and for some time the empire. He could not, however, have'pre loped with the utmost speed across the oark, to- wards the river wharf, into which tlrey plunged, ' The servants coming up, with assistance, a mah„ at the risk of his life, jumped in, cut the traces,- and with difficulty, succeeded itl getting them out, Wonderful to relate, the horses were neither of them materially injured, and they are now doiug well.

APFLES AND PEARS.—- Considerable pains ate raking to bring in'o one point of view the Apples^ P ars, and other Fruits produced in different parts of G eat Britain, in order to prevent the confu- sion arising from the same species of Apples and other Fruits bearing different names in different counties, and to bring their comparative ineri'S to a fair competition.

BRIGHTON, Nov. 6— In my letter of Tuesday last, I observed that an enormous fish, supposed a grampus, had been entangled in the nets of one of the herring b^ ats belonging to this place, and that a numerous body ot fishermen were then en- gaged in endeavouring to draw the stupendous animal to land} and in which task they, rffter The List of the Navy recently published, enume- rates the following number of Oficers, viz.— ^ Vdmirnl of tlie Fleet. 1 Admirals of the Ked..:... 22 '••• White... 31 Blue 21 Vice- Adm. of the Red 2.7 White.,. 2.3 Blue..,. 23 Rear.
