The humble Petition of the GENTLEMEN, CLERGY, and FREEHOLDERS, of the County of MERIONETH, SHEWETH, That your Petitioners, deeply impressed with a Sense of the invaluable Blessings which they enjoy under the present Constitution of their Country, view with Disqiue- tude and Alarm every Measure which ran lend in auy Degree to alter its Form or impair its Energy. That your Petitioners consider ( he Established Churcli an essential Part of lhat Constitution, and have always deemed the La. s enacted for its Preservation and Support lo be founded no less in sound Policy than in pure Religion. That your Petitioners conceive the whole Constitution of this Country lo be grounded on Principles exclusively far at ihe least as relates lo Ihe Possession and Protesiant, . of Power, a Protestant Monarchy, a Protestant Legisla lure and a Protestant Church, having been established al , and Principles on which our present Constitution Ihe Revolution as the decisive Characteristics of tbe British ' — -,- J —' •'--••-> " " Constitution.

The Petition of the FREEHOLDERS of the County of MONTGOMEKY, HUMBLY SHEWETH, Thai no ordinary Emergence would have induced your Petitioners to obtrude tin : r Sentiments 011 your Right Hon. House, or to incur tbe Imputation of agitating the public Mind; but they conceive it would be a Dereliction of their Duty, were they any longer to listen wilh Indifference, to those Claims for a radical and hazardous Alteration of the Constitution which Ihe Catholics so perseveringly and peremptorily demand. Tbat your Petitioners are Friends to ReligiousTolcration, and rejoice thai 011 ibis Ground Iheir Catholic Brethren 1 r. re satisfied tliey have lio longer Reason lo coniplain : But ; viewing Admissibility to Office purely as a matter of Con- stitutional Expediency, they cannot concur ill the Wisdom Or | ihe Safety of that Policy, which would expose n i Government, whose civil aud religious Institutions are so intimately blended, aud so essentially Protestant, to the Administration of Catholic Legislators or Catholic Ad- visers of the Crown. That when your Petitioners refer to the Circumstances was founded, and their direct Opposition to those professed by the Church of Rome; w hen they contemplate the imperious and ascendant Character of that Church— her nnhuuuded ith it incumbent 011 111c, 11s I had the Honour to preside at that Meeting, to say that the Petition was not founded on the Statements contained in tbe anonymous Publication alluded lo, and thai although 1 commented al some Length on that Publication towards the tnil of mv Address to the Meeting, it wus not taken as the Ground of the Argu- ments advanced by me on that Occasion. 1 am therefore completely at Issue with the Hon. Baronet on both his Assertions. In asserting that the Petition wits founded 011 Ttie Third Part of the Statement of the Penal Laws which ag- grieve the Catholics of Ireland, the Hon. Baronet appears to have been hasty ; for, having both before him, he should have compared them, and if be had done so, he could not have asserted, as he has done, on anonymous Informal ion, that the Anglesey Petition was founded on The Third Part of the Statement. But on this, his first Assertion, it is un- necessary to enlarge, as both the Documents are open to public Inspection. Willi regard to the Hon. Baronet's second Assertion, that the Third Part of the Statement was taken as Ihe Ground of all my Arguments at the Anglesey County Meeting, to j ascertain its Accuracy, I must appeal lo Ihe Recollection | of eveiy Gentleman present, except the Hon Baronet's j Reporter, whether the latter has made a fair Represenla- ! lion. This is Ihe only Test I can apply, as my Address to | tbe Meeting, being extempore, I could not comply with i the Wishes expressed for its Publication, nor cau l now produce it to contradict the Report of it made to the Hon. Haronet. I have, however, such a Recollection of the French journals so studiously conceal from us where the actual positions of the 15 us.", ian armies are. We believe tbey have never yet ventured lo acknowledge their entrance into Wihia. The meeting of t| ie Legis- lative Body, it appears, was actually to take place otv Sunday last. Bonaparte was lo go in grand procession to open the Session. I Some private letters have been received from Paris, of the same dale as the Papers. . They speak in positive terms of tbe, Emperor of Austria having refused to comply with the demands of Bonaparte, and that Ihe discontents of the people were daily increasing, and their disapprobation of the threatened continuance of the war, more loudly and unequivocally expressed.— The walls of the capital were placarded with tlisir complaints, and many caricatures upon the subject of Bonaparte's late dastardly flight were publicly exhibited. It was rumoured that Murat, who lias quitted tiie French service, has beeu arrested, and wis ou his way to Paris, as a prisoner. A Lisbon Mail arrived yesterday, bringing advice* from thence to the recent cia'. e of the 9th inst. It does not appear that any thing material has occurred.

That your Petitioners regard the Acknowledgment of a Foreign Supremacy by Roman Catholics, as a Tenet in- compatible with the Existence of any I'roteslant Govern- ment, as it renders those who make il incapable of giving adequate Security for Iheir Allegiance. Tliat your Petitioners can discern 110 Alteration, either in the Circumstances of the Times, or in Ihc Sentiments and Conduct of ihe Roman Catholics, which can make their Admission into Power less dangerous now tliau il was at tbe Time of Ihe Revolution That your Petitioners dcprccatc lie Manner 111 which the Roman Catholic Demands have < 0 frequently been ob- truded 011 llir Attention of Parliament, because the Dis- cussion of Ihis momentous Subject must always cause great Ferment in Ihe Minds of his Majesty's Subjects, by just cause toapprehend Ibe most serio 11 sConsequences from 1 he admission of those into ihe most commanding Places of Trust and Authority in this Protestant State, who pay a sarred Allegiance to so formidable a Combination of Ca- tholic and hostile Power Your Petitioners, therefore, hombly entreat your Right Honourable House not 10 concede such it Degree of Power to the Catholics, as might enable them, by means " of foreign or domeslic Influence, to subvert or endanger lhat mild, wise; and liberal Constitution, which tolerates and protects every Description ot Christians, and under which our Country hath attained that enviable and commanding Pre- eminence, w hich renders it at once Ihe Asylum and the Bulwark of the Liberties of the World.

It is woithy of remark, that his Lordship's dispatch docs not afford any countenance to the reports derived Some time bick from the Spanish and Portuguese Papers; of the enemy bein^ about to evacuate the Peninsula, and we must, therefore, conclude, tbat they were without foundation, though an article from Alicant repeats a former rumour of Soult having been recalled, with SO.

Tlic Dwelling House has been lately erected at a con- siderable Expenc^, and consists of two good Parlours, a Kitchen, aud back Kitchen, Bed Rooms, and other suit- able Couveniencies. Il is pleasantly situated within one Mill: and a Half of the Market Town of Llanfair, and the surrounding Country abounds in Fish and Game. The Farm is in excellent Condition, and the Stables and Outbuildings are extensive and in good Repair— Posses- sion of the Lands will be given at Lady- day, and of the House and Buildings at May next. 1 Also, Alt that old established and well accustomed INN, called the CROSS FOXES, situate in tlit Town of Llan- fair, inthe said County, with abonl 90 Acres of Arable, !

This Inn is conveniently and desirably situated 111 tl. e Town of Llanfair, both as to its local and other Advan- tages. In particular the Posting Business may be esta- blished to a considerable Extent, in consequence of good Turnpike Roads branching from the Town in every Direc- tion.— The great Road from Shiewsburyto Aberystwyth und other Parts of Wales also goes through Ibis" Town, mid Upon which Road Coaches are daily passing and your Petitioners trust cannot be well founded, aiid by be- coming, in Consequence of the Disappoiujment of ihosc Hopes, a Source ot Irritation and Acrimony. Your Petitioners therefore Inimblv piay, that tbeLawk by which the Romau Catholics are excluded from cer- tain Places of Trust nnd Power, in Church and Slate, within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, may uol be altered, and lhat Serenity may be resloied to the Public Mind by as speedy a I ermina- tion of the present Suspence in Regard to the Prepon- derance of tlie Protestant Religion within Ihis Realm, as lo the Wisdom of your Honourable House may seem meet.

DAVIES OWEN, and RICHARD MYTTON, Esquires, for the tem- perate, judicious, and very able Manner in w bieh they have respectively moved and seconded this Petition. ' The Sheriff having quitted Ihe Chair, Resolved unanimously. That the Thanks ofthis Meeting be given to GEORGE MEARES, Esq tlur. worthy High Sheriff, for Ins ready Compliance with ttieWishes of the Freeholders in convening this Meeting, mid for bis judicious aud independent Couduc. l in t he Chair. Resolved, That these Resolutions and the Petition be inserted in the two next Shrewsbury Papers, aud. iu the Courier. verned by those Principles in the Enactment of Penal Sta- tutes in Matters of Religion, aud to make a just Estimate uf the Policy of those Laws as affecting Non- conformists, and particularly as relating lo the Roman Catholics, I re- viewed the History of this Counlry so far as was necessary to show at what Time, and for what Reason, those Laws which they uow claim lo have repealed were enacted against the Roman Cal holies. I adverted to the Distinction made Journals. The private letters by llie Lisbon Mail, which arrived yeiterday, were delivered this morning. They do not supply any tiling very material in addition to the intelli- gence brought by the Portuguese papers. Some of the letters mention that General Sir R. Hill, with a di- vision of the allied army, had advanced to Placentia.- b'v the Act of Toleration between them and the Protestant The Life- Guards left Lisbon otl the Sth, to join the Dissenters; and after a full Review of the Grounds as- ^^ t> m tbc atrocities committed by the t rench, it is supposed that they are about to quit Spain ; but this is too vague a speculation to be entitled lo much weight. The Lisbon tetters inform us that the Pique frigate had captured a large American privateer, ol 22 guns, and also that another privateei, of 14 guns, had come into Cascaes Bay, where she watered. The Ze- nobia was dispatched in pursuit of her, but the Ameri- can escaped by superior sailing. The report of the signed by the Roman Catholic, fir a Repeal of all Disabi- lities respecting them, 1 submitted to the Consideration of tbe Meeting, whether the Period was uow arrived when the Roman Catholics might wilh Safety be admitted to n full Participation of Political Power." In Reference to iheQuesiiou of their Right to such Participation, I dis- tinguished between natural aud conventional Rights, and observed that every State must necessarily possess a Power of excluding those whose Participation inXWfices of Trust rrnassin"— Possession of the Lands may be had inline- ' Society. ..' . . ^ , . 1 I 11.., I 11 TI SOCIETY FOR PROMOTING CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE.

The humble Petition of the GENTLEMEN, CLERGY, and other INHABITANTS of the County of ANGLESEY, SHEWETH, That your Petitioners, deeply as they are impressed with a just Abhorre. pce of all Persecution for Difference of Opi- nion, iu Faith or Practice, and justly as they exult ii| being Members of a National Church, which tins ever shewn Tenderness toscrupulousConscienCes in the Exercise of Re- ligion; do, nevertheless, humbly conceive'tbe Preservation of that Church, as by Law established, lo be their primary aud bounden Duty.— Your Petitioners rejoiced in the Re- lief granted by the 31st of liis Majesty to the Roman Ca- tholics of Ireland; but lament, lhat instead of ihe Grati- tude and . Contentment which that Measure w as calculated to produce, it has encouraged itiem to advance Claims ma- nifestly subversive of the Protestant Establishment. It,; therefore, becomes the Duly uf your Petitioners, and they do most humbly pray, lhat your Lordships, in any Measures which in your Wisdom you may adopt, for Ilie further Relief of Ihe Roman Catholics of Ireland, will lake espe- cial Care that those Measure*, be so framed as to preserve that Constitution, Civil and Religious, which your Peti- tioners have received from their Ancestors, and which it is their anxious \\ ish to transmit unimpaired 10 their Pos- terity. Aud your Petitioners, as bound, shall ever pray. diately, Mild of the Inn at May next Mr. WILLIAM OWI N will shew Ihe Premises; and for further Particulars apply lo Ihe Reverend Mr. Lewis, at Llanfair; or at the Office of Mr. GRIFFITIIES, Solicitor, in Welshpool. 12th February, 1813.

At a Meeting of the Gentlemen, Clergy, nndothur In- ! habitants of tbe County of Anglesey, held 011 the i 19th Day of January, 1813, in Ihe Shire Hall, at , Beaumaris, to consider of Ihe Claims of the Roman j Catholics ; PAUL PANTON, Esq. having been appointed Chairman : O11 the Motion of JOHN B. SPARROW, Esq. secouded by the Rev THOMAS ELLIS OWEN, RESOLVED, I. That Petitions be presented from this County, to the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, aud to the Commons of ihc United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, iu Parlia- ment assembled. II. That the Petitions proposed hy the said PAUL PAN- TON, Esq. and seconded try HOLLAND GRIFFITH, Esq. are unanimously approved by Ibis Meeting.

V. That the Thanks of this Meeting be giveu to the High Sheriff, for convening this Meeting. PAUL PANTON, Chairman. Mr. PANTON having quilted the Chair, it was 011 the Motion of J. B. SPARROW, Esq. RESOLVED, That I lie Thanks ofthis Meeting are justly due, and are hereby respectfully offered to PAUL. PANTON, Esq for Ibe 11 illv patriotic, moderate, and constitutional Speech made by him on this Occasion; and for his able, upright, and impartial Conduct in the Chair. might prove incompatible with itsSufcly. In the Discus sion of I hose various Topics, and many others which I cannot now recall, I must have been singularly nufor if nil my Arguments were taken from ' The Third Part of the Statement, to which 1 had not yet made Ihe most remote Allusion, nor had in any Degree iu my Thoughts. After having thus discussed the Romau Catholic Claims on Principle, 011 Authority, 011 Expediency, nnd on the Ground of Right, 1 must admit that 1 did advert to The Third Part of the Statement, by saying that, among other Reasons assigned by the Roman Catholics for the Admis- sion of their Claims, 1 hey told us that ' I'empora mutantur. This 1 said was irue, but asked whether they could add et nos mutamur in illis. At this Stage of the Business I pro- duced ' Ihe Third Part of the Statement. Their Features, as here represented, though not new, I said 1 did not expect, and lamented lo ace so depicted in the Nineteenth Century. If it were a true Portrait, which, for Ihc Credit of the Christian Character, 1 tioped it was not, could the Roman Catholic Claims be admitted against all the Principles and Authorities which I had mentioned, Ibis Statement alotle was sufficient to excite Distrust in Persons ibe most friendly to the Admission of those Claims. 1 appeal for Ihe Correctness of this Summary to those whom 1 had tbe honour to address; and must observe tbat, after rlie free Discussion which, as Chairman, 1 invited, it would better have become the Hon. Baronet's Reporter to have answered me, if t was wrong, than, thro' Ignorance or Dt'sign, lo make to him a Representation, erroneous in itself, calculated to create Odium against me, and lo cast Discredit 011 a respectable Assembly, unprejudiced, not actuated by sectarian Bigotry, or religious Intolerance, but deeply impressed with the Value of lhat Constitution iu Church and Slate which they enjoy, sud with Ihe Obligation of transmitting it unimpaired io their Posterity. That 1 received the Thanks of such an Assembly is some Consolation 10 nie under the Imputations cast upon me iu t he House of Commons, and in tlie public Papers; but, it being necessary lhat 1 should repei those Imputations, I trust that you will allow' me to make this Letter public, and to annex lo it Copies of the Petition aud Resolutions of the Anglesey County Meeting.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17. Paris Papers to the 1 Ith inst, were last night received in town. They bring accounts from Posen to the 4th instant. Berthler and Davoust bad left that station, but we are not informed what lias been their destination — All the French Marshals now appear lo have followed the example of their Master, and to have shifted for themselves. Eugene Beauliarnois, who has at present the command, was, we believ e, the youngest Officer of high rank in Ihe " Grand Army," with the exception of Jerome Bonaparte, wiio had the prudence to with- draw early iu liie campaign. The entire dependence of Eugene on Napoleon may have been the reason why the lattei has entrusted him with tbe command of the wreck ot his army, for certainly there was nothing in the previous military exploits of Eugene to justify such an appointment. The French Journals continue to speak of reinforcements marching to Posen, and contra- dict the reports that the communications with Danlzic have been interrupted. We suspect, however, it will be found, when the Gottenburgh Mails arrive, that ihe communications with Dantzic have not merely been in- terrupted, but that a regular investment of that fortress had taken place. The Austrian Ambassador had fol- lowed tiie King of Prussia to Breslaw. The preseu state of affairs is such as to render it unsafe for Bona- parte to shew any disrespect to the Court cf Vienna, itherwise it would probably have better suited his views ,' iad the Austrian Minister remained at Berlin. The Vustrian corps under tbe Prince of Schwartzenberg is again said to be in advance on Warsaw, and Regnier in cantonments 011 the Bug, where ne lias repulsed all the itUcks of the Russian advanced guards. These state- ments, . however, are entitled to little respect, while the driveu the Constellation on shore, is repeated in these letters ; but no further circumstances are mentioned lo stamp it witb additional credibility. The Lisbon papers contain the following extracts of an official dispatch from Marshal General the Marquis of Wellington, to his Excellency Senor Miguel Pere. ra Forjaz, dated head- quarters, Frenada, Jan. 28. " I returned here on ihe 21tn instant. Ii appears that tbe enemy has not made any essential alieration in the position of Ins armies during my absence. The three annies of Portugal, the centre and south, are unitejl in Castile, under King Joseph, whose head quarters are now in Madrid. " The army of Portugal is under the command of Gen. Reille, who lately came from Ihe army of the north, and has h'S head- quaiters in Valladolid. The aimy of thecentieis under the orders of Coude n1 Erlon, wtro was formerly employed m the army of ttie south, and commanded for a short litnelhs army of Portugal after the allies retired from the Tonnes • head- quarters are in the vicinity of Madrid; and t( ie aitnyof the south is under Marshal Soult's orders, whose hea I- quarters are in Tuledo. The army of the south was late y drawn towards the mi ibbombood of Ihe ' fag, is, having moved towaids tbe place of Toledo the divisions of that driny which were in the Province of Avila, and having ttiem re- placed iu Avila by the first division of the army of Poittigal. 1 have not received any recent accounts by which I can form an idea of the state of affairs in the north of Spain. General Mina appears to be actively employed against the en " my in Navarre, and lie, 3s wet! as General Longa, have caused hitn great loss. The latter destroyed 6<> 0 men, and took two pieces of artillery, in an action with the enemy on the3" ih of Nivemtrer. My last accounts from Aiicant are dated the latter end of Decemb r, ai which epoch part of the reinforce. ments which were expected from Sicily, had arrived, and Lieutenant.- General Lord Wiiliaui Beiitinck was expected. The ahied English anil Portuguese armies occupy the same cantonments in which they were in the beginning of Decern, ber. The Spanish troops aie likewise all in cantonments." The Mentor, Spanish ship, arrived from Corunna, brings au accouut that information bad been received there, that the French had committed great excesses iu Madrid, and other parts of Spain s and il was generally believed, from their movements, that they intended to quit that country immediately. Tlu- y had already left Lenda and Tarragona ; which places are now occupied by the Spaniards. Generals bad been appointed to all the provinces, for. the better carrying into effect the appointment and organization ofthe new army of 50,000 Spanish troops, to be at tile disposal of Marq. Welling toil. A long list of Officers, with Ue'i. Castauos at tiie head, had been appointed to command the uew army. lt is strongly reported tins morning, thai a certain French Count, residing near Mancbestor- squa e, set ( iff vesterday for St. Petersburg!), charged 011 a special mission from Louis XV111. lo Ihe Emperor of Russia. It is stated, that a copy of the Concordat agreed upo. i between Bonaparte and the Pope, has been received in this country. The principal stipulations of it are said to relate to the restoration to liie Pope, by Bonaparte, ofthe States of tlie Church, with fuil temporal power therein; and the agreement by the former lo give Ins sanction to the la « t mariiage of Bonaparte* and thus formally to legitimate the King of Rome ; as a testi- mony of which the Pontiff will assist at tbe Coronation. The fleet to be employed in the Jfaluc during tho ensuing seas, 11, will not be on the same extensive scale as that of last year. The number of ships of the line, it is said, will not exceed six or eight at niost, with some frigates and small vessels— the whole under the orders of Admiral Morris. The Vigo, Zealous, and Orion, of 74 guns, and the Hamadryad frigate, are tilting out at Portsmouth, and will proceed tp the Baltic. A singular variance appears in the name subscribed to the Letter of the Princess of Wales, as published, and the name given to her Royal Highness in the Peerage and the Court Calendar. The name s- giied to the Letter is Caroline Louisa, whilst the name her iioyal Highness is stated in tbe Peerage and Calendiw to bear, is Caroline Amelia Elisabeth. How is this strange difference to be accounted for J It is stated by a Moiuiitg Paper," lhat the P. coh, or Report cf the Delicate Investigation, has been printed in America, from a copy sen! over for the purpose, a, ul 80OO co, ies of this Tra is- Atbnltc edition are now'on their way to this Count y for sale."

' Various precaution.., • joined, 111 order to insure, as far as possible, ti is personal safety. Nothing indeed, can more strongly prove the fer- ment that prevailed at Paris tKat theSe minute injunctions of the Police, which do not at all belong to the regulation of a procession, bul could only have for their object to repress ihe manifestation of popular di'scoiltent, aud guard against the danger of. assassination. The financial distresses of the French Government are great beyond precedent. Asa last resource, Bonaparte is ' said to have directed circulars to be sent to all Ihe depart- I tnents, craving a voluntary contribution from every peisou in the State, and fixing 100 livres as the smallest sain w hich I will be received. ! American papers to the 24th ult. were yesterday'received j in town. They bring information that the port of New j York is: at length closely blockaded by a squadron, under j Sir J. B. Wal- reu, consisting of tlie'Sl. Doninigo ( flag- ship), j • Dragon, and P © ic tiers, five frigates, and three smaller | vessel.-*. They hacaptured several American vessels,' amongtheni the schooner Syreile, and ship Silenits, of Charleston, aud had obliged others lo return to port. As no mention is made of the" Poic^ iers having captured or destroyed any A merican frigates, we may conclude that the ' the reports which have been in circulation On that Subject' are devoid of foundation. Information had been received at toslon, that five or six French frigates had effected their escape from Bourdeaux and Nantz, aud were supposed to be on theh vvay to ihe United States j but as we have now a res pectifble force in the American seas, wle do not think much is to be apprehended from the naval efforts of Mr. M adison's gieat ally. I11 the House of Representatives, on the 13th' ult. the ' Com Wit tee of Cdnlmerce and Manufactures reported on a bill to Irfy an tiddilionalduty on iron iuiie imported. A re- solution was also carried, for instructing the Committee of VVaysand Means to report, with all convenient speed, such ' bills as shall he considered necessary to provide means for the war, by taxation, and to secure public credit. The Temporary Army hill, for raising 20 regiments for one year, ' bad been read a third " lime aud parsed. The prevailing opinion in America at present seems to be, that there is no prospect of a peace between this country and the United States; and the New York papers, on what authority we know not, states Ihe opinion of Sir J. B. Wrrren to be nn- • fiivourable to an accommodation. If we are to listen to the harangues of some of the American Legislators, peace is not to be thought of, till every iueh of ground in Canada ' lias been taken from the British. Before the warcommeu ce. d, th'v were lo have over- run Canada. in a single cam- paign ! The new Secretary at War, Men, Armstrong, had received his commission al New York on tl. e 19th ult. Mr Gallatin was to be Secretary of State. Gen. Smith had written a lengthy apology to Congress, for his conduct while General of the forces ou tbe frontiers, and Gen. Porter had posted him as a coward Congress sat ou the ] 4th inst. with closed doors, for two hours. A message was received from the Senate, with a bill which they had passed, for organizing the militia, that they may be called out, repel invasion, assist the Executive, and suppress insurrection. We are happy to learn, by a gentleman lately arrived from Denmark, that the British name is becoming popular in that kingdom, and the English Newspapers and Russian bull tins are read wilh avidity. It appears that the influence ofthe French had been so great as to prevent Ihe appear- ance of the Russian account* in the Danish publications, while those of France were regularly admitted. The Rus- sian Ambassador remonstrated with the King in person, who declared bis inability to grant him the privilege; but lie ohserv d, at the same time, that he could not object to the Ambassador's shewing them in his own house. The latter, in consequence, t brew- open au elegant apartment, furnished regularly with the Russian bulletins, aud ac counts of the French disasters, and all the English news papers. The crowds who daily attended were so gi c^ at, that to regu ate their admission, officers were necessary at the doors, and the public joy was manifested at every arrival of news. It- is said an alteration is to be made in the payment of the income and property tax, jwhicb, instead of being paid to the customary tax- gatherers, is to be paid into an olfice Appointed hy Government for that purpose.

A similar Address was the same evening moved, and carried without a division, in the HOUSE OF COMMONS.— On this occasion Mr. Foster ( late Ambassador to the United Slates) observed, that the Government of the United States were not masters of their own conduct, which was totally influenced by the violence ofthe ruling war party ; and he was glad of that opportuity of paying to the Chief of that Government ( Mr. Madison) and to Mr. Monroe, with whom he had been so long ill Ihe habits of communicating, the just praise they deserved for the moderation they constantly evinced in conducting the negotiations. But that Govern- ment could do nothing without Ihe Congress, and the Congress was divided into parties. Hecould not agree to the assertion, that there waB no French parly in it; it was, 011 the contrary, very well known, thai many ofthe leading I characters now in America had early adopted alt the prin- | ciplcsof French revolutionists, and they still continued to | cherish them, even since Ihe overthrow of the republic, j Another party in Congress nun Ihc Anti- Anglican— which, from secret and inveterate antipathy, sought, by all the means in their power, to embitter every cause of misunder- standing between the two countiies, and to prevent all reconciliation.

Mr. Batho requested to have it put in a vault lately made at the expence of the parish : hut the Rector refusing to perform the Burial Service, the corpse was left in the middle aisle of the church.

General LONDON, Jlonday Night, February 22 « ', 1813. By the arrival of Paris Papers to tbe llth instant, we ave at length teeeived Bonaparte's Address to h- s Legis- lative Body. As was expected, England, Ihe object of the Tyrant's deadly hatred, uccupies the prominent ground in ibis Document — We are stated lo have made, in conse- quence of ihe war in tbe North, great efforts in the Penin- sula, but our army was wrecked before Burgos, and obliged to evacuate the Spanish territory, after having sustained greal losses The failure of Bonaparte iu Russia is attri- buted lo the excessive and premature severity of the winter. The losses sustained by him, he very pathetically obseives, would have broken his heart, could it have been accessible lo any other sentiments than those of the interest, the glory, and Ibe future prosperity of his people; which lie look such honourable means to consult, by deserting his army in the midst of its distresses. The accusation is bro gilt agaiust tbe Cossacks, of having burnt ilie Russian villages, frotn molives of ancient haired; but we know, from ihe official documents published by the Russian Government, t li at the Russian peasantry were Ibe first lo set fire to their own villages, rather than permit them to fall into the hands of the enemy. The animosity of Bonaparte towards Ibe Cossacks is tire inosl satisfactoiy testimony that can be borne to Ibe merits of these brave soldiers. The reverses sustained by France in the North is said to have inspired England wuh hopes that bad no b. iunds: and a vague accusation is thiown out, 0/ our having offered the li nest provinces of France as the reward of treason. We know not whether this bus any relation to Mulct's conspiracy, but as for any project for the actual disniembermenl of France itself, il could never have been entertained. The only reason for the mention of such a scheme is, to alarm the self- love of the people of France, and to make them consent with greater willingness to those sacrifices, which the necessities of the Tyrant oblige him to impose upon theiu. The agents of England are next accused of propaga- ting ihe spirit of revolt against Sovereigns ; that is, against siicii wretches as this Emperor himself, who, having risen to power by Ihe perpetration of every crime, can only preserve their authority by persevering in their atrocities. To seek the dow nfall of tyrauuical usurpations is au accu- sation of which this counti y ueed never be ashamed. With respect to Bouapartc's future plans, we are told, that the French dynasty reigns, and will reign in Spain ; he is satis- lied with all Ins allies ;— the Russians shall return lo their " frightful climate " He wishes peace, and he has slated ai! the sacrifices he could make. After some passing compli- ments to Mr. Madison for his war, the Speech concludes with an intimation of the prosperous condition of the interior of France, and that uu new burthens will be laid upon the people. Il appears, from ll. e Concordat, that considerable con- cessions have been made to the Pope. He is to exercise his functions in the same manner as bis predecessors, wilh all the privileges of a sovertign independent prince, to de- pute anil receive ambassadors, & c. H is domains are lo be ex- empt fiom ull kinds of imposts, and the investiture to the vacant Sees ill France and Italy is settled by compromise. Pardon is granted to ait tlie Cardinals, & c who had fallen under tbe displeasure of Bonaparte for their adherence to the Pope. 1 he Spanish Papers arrived from Cadiz to the 4th inst. communicate no intelligence whatever of Ihe smallest interest. The private letters of the same date however iiilorm us that hy advices from Alicaut of the 21st ult it ap- peared that the Expedition from Sicily was still there, aud that orders had been recently received from British Head quarters that it might be iu readiness to act the moment Ihe Visiting Clergyman this week at the Infirmary, the Rev.

Wednesday morning last, between 3 and 4 o'clock, this town was visited bv a violent storm of Ihundcr and lightning accompanied by heavy rain : its duration was but short. During the whole of that uight, and a great part of ibe following day, it blew a perfect hurricane, which threw down some chimnies, and occasioned other damage, but noiieof a very serious nature — It appears by the provincial papers, that ibis tempest extended very generally, over the island.— The following account evinces how awfully it has raged :— Monmouth— The" war of elements," which the storm of Wednesday ivght last may justly be termed, will be long remembered here, from the n. vful sensations which it pro- duced in llie minds of those who witnessed it.

The united violence of the htorui began ahont half- past eleven. At the village of Llanspyddid, three miles Iriim Brecon, and when tlicy came upon the bridge over Ihe Usk al that town, there were such tremendous peals of thunder, that tbe leadeis again became unruly, and were only prevented by the instant exertions of tiie guard from overturning tbe coach, lie compares Ihe falling of the rain to the discharge of a water- spout, and the effect ofthe lightning was such as io sus- pend his sight for some moments, lt will scarcely be cre- dited, that the storm accelerated the arrival of the coach at M011111011 111 almost two hours before its usual time ; for the horses were so terrified nearly Ihe whole way, that they could hardly be restrained from going at full speed, Tbe waters, though much swofn, have not yet occusioncd floods of any consequent e in this neigl houi hood.

I therefoie hope the following \ statement will for the present be deejned satisfactory. Abraham Cooke, who resides at Atchani, about four miles distant from Shrewsbury, was, upou the 22d January ' last, bitten iu the hand by a pointer hitch, bearing evident signs of being mad. By the persuasion of his friends, lie . almost immediately set out and walked to Shrewsbury. ; On his arrival, the bitten part was excised by Mr Thomas j Sutton, Surgeon. The wound soon healed, and he con- ! tinned 111 good health and spirits, always making light of the accident, until Friday, the 5th of February, when, in ! the morning, he first began to feel and complain ot an I uneasiness and soreness in that part of his hand where he 1 had received the injury. On Saturday and Sunday il be- | came gradually worse; and 011 Monday morning, after a j restless night, lie arose with increased pain and soreness in | his hand, attended with head- ache, sickness, and oppression 1 at the pit of his stomach: his breathing was difficult.— Notwithstanding, he went to his work, but very soon became much worse. He was prevailed upon to drink some warmed beer, and was immediately seized with violent vomitings. He with difficulty reached his home, and on his way was much distressed, as he believed the people who were passing were determined to ride over him. His wife, seeing him so ill, pressed him to take some water; he shewed a great d; ead of it, and could not be prevailed upon to drink any, assigning as the reason of his objection, the pain and vomiting occasioned by swallowing the beer. She then procured some surfeit- water, to which he made the same objection ; she put it to his mouth, but could not say j whether any was swallowed; if any, it must have been a ' very small quantity ; she was terribly frightened at his looks. All the Symptoms rapidly increased : his eyes were inflamed aud staring; his face was likewise inflamed, and his features were contorted, and indicated the greatest dread and anxiety. It was with difficulty he was detained in his bed, aud he appeared to be watching, and anxious to escape some object that occasioned his distress. At this time ( about one o'clock p. m.) i was passing through the village, and was desired to visit him ; I found him iu the situation related. In a very short time afterwards, his left hand, arm, and head were convulsed. I waited to hear the history ofthe accident from his wife, and then pressed him to drink some water; I could not prevail, and alt hough I did not observe any additional horror at. the moment I offered it, slill it was evident he was too much agitated to be able to th ink. I was truly anxion assistance of my much- esteemed friend i at the same time I was aware that the delay of an hour might I hazard the life of our patient. 1 therefore had recourse to j the abstraction « f a large quantity of blood, and allowed it j to flow until be faulted.

On Tuesday morning, at seven o'clock, 1 again visited him. He hud slept the early part of the night, but had beeu disturbed with horrid dreams; at the same time he told uic, " he had not beeu half so much alarmed by his dreams, as with the appearance of the dog in his room the day before, and which did not leave the room until he fainted from tlie bleeding "— He seemed agitated, and said he w as dreadfully ill, and should never sleep again. There were convulsive starlings in his hand, wrist, and shoulders. He told me he thought there was something alive in his wrist;— he refused to take either cofl'ee or w ater. His countenance was composed, but thoughtful; he said his neighbours had been making a noise on purpose all night, and every thing went through his brains. He started at the slightest sound or motion ; and so quick was his sense of hearing, that he knew, by thesound, to whom a waggon that was passing by belonged. I considered it necessary to repeat the bleeding, aud the result was exactly ihe same as before described— he fainted; and from that time was perfectly composed, aud free from convulsion, until about three o'clock p m. when his wife thought for a moment she observed a twitching in his shoulder. On Wednesday, 1 saw him comfortable— On Thursday, the llth, after sitting up for sotne time, he was much fatigued, and faiuled i— I was sent for, and upon my arrival, his wife said, u she was sorry I had been troubled to come, as the fit was nothing like what I had st'en before, and was not more than such as he had been accustomed to when he had heen drinking hard, or was much tired, and that it was agaiust her consent that the messenger came." 1 was satisfied, from appearances, she was right; audi left him without any apprehension— Since that time, 1 have re- gularly visited him, and there has not been one untoward symptom. He is now apparently well, excepting that his mouth is sore from the ellect ofthe mercury. 1 liere wish to mention, that immediately on my return from Atcham on Monday, the 8th, the first afternoon I saw the patient, I called upon Mr. Thomas Sutton, and re- quested him to take the earliest opportunity ofobseiving tbe ca> « , and begged that he would have the kindness to suggest anything that he thought likely to be of service. He and Mr. Sutton, as well us others of the profession, have beeu present. 1 remain, Dear Sir, Shrewsbury, Your obedient Servant, 22dFeb 1813. RICE WYNNE Penny loaf, or t* o?

Solicitor, Ludlo , Salop. wxsaxsszfi" FOR THE SALOPIAN JOURNAL. On Moduses, as to the Tithes of M'M, Calves, and Tools. ( No. V ) In most parts of this county, I believe that there are tltcduses similar to these in the parish of Oswestry, namely ; tkrfe half- pence for a cow nnd calf, in lien, of Ihe tithes of milk ami t'llf, payable at the time of the cow's caking, but usually paid al the annual settling of accounts for small tithes; and a modus of four- pence for a mare and foal, in lieu of the tithes of Ihe metre and foal, payable'also al the time Of the mare's foaling, but vsiially paid at the annual settling of accounts. The remarks which I shall make on these fncidihes, will apply • equally well to similar'tBiWt/ JM in any other parish, although the small payments, whereby fbeyate respectively supported, , ' tnay he a little more or a little less. In order fairly to estimate the value of these Mduses'to a Shropshire estate, I will draw a comparison between the pay- ment under a modus and the demand which might posfclbly be made, as a composition for the tithes of milk'and calves. Suppose the relit of a dairy farm to be .£ 300 a year, on • which m » v bekejiton an average, 25 milch cows; the modus for milk and calves Vould be 3s. f\ ei.: but a temporary compo- sition, according to Mr.' Beaiblock's estimate, would be 10J. Od. for the milk of each cow ; and take the calvCs, when thev might be sold to the butcher, or weaned, to be of tbe average value of <£ 3 each, of f ™ , each for the tithe; the whole < composition for the tithe of milk and calves only, would amount to .£ 45 18J. 9rA!* A proprietor of land might just as Well endow a vicarage or a rectorv * wijh the reversion of a seventh or a sixth part ol Vis Shropshire estate, as allow bis tenants to suffer any continued innovations uponthese mo'dusit, the perfect security til which ought to be scrupulously guarded by the regularity of the payments, and the certainty 6f the sums paid : therefore, the payment of one penny, or iwo- p'nce, instead of three half- penc. should be peremptorily objected to by landlords as well - m tenants*; and if the acceptance of the money due under a modus, be refused altogether, in such ease - written evidence ou, lit'to be preserved of its having been tendeier) sufficiently often to'- keep in view the security of so valuable a'privilege, j These mtsdusfs, if preserved with due care, must rttnain perfectly good, the payments being small, or not - too'" rank," and such as will a'ways be presumed to have been the value of the tithes above. 600 years ago ; the reign of Richard 1. having been frxt hv 3 Edward I. c. 39, as the period of legal memory': hut anv modus or custom commencing since that tittle, cannot he good iu law, unless established by an act of parliatheut.' § I hone that tbe earnestness of my endeavours to expose the fallacies of Mr. Bateman's and Mr. Bearblock's publications, and to arrest the progress of the vexatious prosecutions, anil miseries which bave proceeded from tbem, will not be mis- construed into disrespect towards the Clergy. I have diligently sought out the truth, and particularly as to the law of agistment tithe, reducing it toajfew plain maxims, wherein the rights of the tithe- owner antl the privileges of the farmer are, as I believe, correctly defined. I presume that no clergymen would intentionally demand more tithes than the law assigned to them, and they'cannot • be displeased with me for bringing thus plainly to their view, tbe nature and extent of a tithe which bas hitherto been in- volved in on extrnordinaiy degree of obscurity : for although it is to be lamented, that any ecclesiastical benefices are so small, as to he inadequate to the support of that lank in society, to which the important services of clergymen so pro- perly entitle them ; it is also to be hoped, that no increase of income would be acceptable, iqion teims which must be injurious ond oppressive toward their parishioners, as far as they exceed their just and lawful claims : aud much less Would they think of retaining anv over- paymeuts, which may have been incautiously insisted upon pendente lite, and complied with, not from any proof of their justness, but from n dtearl of the ecclesiastical court, reluctantly submitting to the pmltdatums of books of no authority whatever. T. N. PARKER. Sweer. ey, 1<) tli February, 1813. * Speaking rif cows and calves, it naturally pulsjme in mind of bull" ; antl 1 should be much obligerl to any one who could inform sue under what modus, prescription, act of parliament, or princi- ple. a hull can be accounted an animal unprofitable to the tithe- owner n a oairy country, and liable to a tithe of 12s. a year for Iiis agistment ? * Probably the distinction which Shropshire has obtained as a dairy country, ha- arisen as much from the circumstance of these medusa in lieu ol the tithes of milk and ealvcs, as from the quality ofthe land ; and consequently, any considerable check given to the dairv system, would increase the growth of corn. t" 1 beg to be understood as not applying these remarks to any particular parish: such innovations have happened in different parr, lies wil'min uiy knowledge, and perhaps from inadvertency. Ij An instance ot sut h a modus may be observed in the articles ol hemp and flax, the tithes of which have been fixt lor limited periods, antl renewed by several acts of parliament, and lastly made perpetual by 1 Geo. I. " ta. 2. c. 26. sec. 2. with reference to 11 and 13 Will. III. c. 16. - ec. 1. the amount of this modus is to be paid , t vea- ly and every year, the sum of 5s antl no more, for each " acre of hemp and flax so sown before the same be carried off the 44 ground, and so propoilionablv for ntoreor less ground so sown ;" and therefore, ihe tithes of hemp and flax are not to be charged ac- cording lo the quantity of seed sown, but in the way prescribed by the act ot parliament. the family had not long retired to rest, when they were awakened by groans and cries of distress, and on repairing to the servants' room, who were unable to attend tbe call, a scene presented itself truly shocking to contemplate. One tif the girls had expired under the effects of the poison, and the other two were iu the most dreadful agonies. Fortunately however medical assistance was speedily obtained, and the lives ot these two deluded females preserved, who own thai ihey have once been cuiedof their love fancies; but the tliiid, who had partaken more, largely than the rest, bad almost in- stantly and'beyond remedy oi resistance acknowledged the. power of the baneful infusion, anil paid the forfeit of her folly with her life, as already observed, the victim of a silly and superstitious notion too prevaleiit. amoog females. The Army.— A Circular has been issued from the War- Office, under date of the lOlh inst. directing that noidicrs of the Foot Guards and Infantry of the Line desirous of re- enlisting, after completing the period ol limited service for which they may have been engaged, in conformity lo the provisions of thc Mutiny Act, shall, if found lit to continue in the army, be allowed to receive the same amount of bounty as is granted at the'same time to men entering into the service ; which sum is to be issued to them upon being re- attested.— The rates at present allowed are £ 11. lis. for the further limited period of seven years, and £ 16,16s, for an unlimited period ; and are, of course, to cover every charge attending the re- enlistment. Men of 35 years of age or upwards are not to be permitted to re- engage for a longer period than seven years. Another Circular, of the same date, notifies that regiments of infantry of the line will be permitted lo enlist annually, in part of their establishment, fifty boys of five feet in height, if not exceeding sixteen years of age. The Levy Money for each Recruit of this description to be j£ 6. l is. 6d. if engaged for limit- ed service; and j£ 8. 16s. 6d. if for unlimited service. Boys of fifteen years of age and upwards receive the same pay as men. Those under fifteen years of age, are allowed only ten- pence per diem. Thc boys, in the first instance, to be trained lo the management of the firelock, with fusils, furnished for their use. In the case of these recruits belonging to regiments which liave a battalion at the Cape of Good Hope, or to the Eastward of that settlement; in North America, the Mediterranean, or Gibraltar, they are to be forwarded to their battalions whenever opportunities occur.— But they are in no case to be sent to the West Indies, or to join a ballalion employed on active service, until they are fully equal, in every respect, to the performance of their duty as soldiers, 1 he Commander in Chief re- commends, in general terms, the utmost mildness and lenity, as the best means of establishing discipline and attaching ' the boys to bis Majesty's service ; and directs that these boys may constantly attend the Regimental School, with a view to their being qualified for the situations of non- commissioned Officers. The Americans, if we will take their word for it, are the only people upon earth who entertain proper ideas of Liberty. That their claim is well founded will be rendered apparent by tl. e following advertisement, copied from the last New York papers received in this country : " A stout, hearty, negro wench, with a male child, to be sold cheap— Apply," & e. 1' utal Effects of Superstition.— The following circumstance, wiueh ought to operate as a caution to the ignoiant ond su- perstitious, occurred about a month ago in the mansion of Charles Wood, Esq. at Thereby, near Louth.— Three fc- inalesin the st i vice of that gentleman, enteitabling ihe pie- valent notion ihai by partaking of a cake called a dumb cake, which, among the other ingredients composing it, was to contain a portion of the juice tir leaves of a certain tree, not limned to us, but perhaps the 44 rnagic loiseltue," they should enjoy the pleasure of dreaming of their sweethearts, Wed- ding days, went in search uf this love and joy inspiring plant; but not being sufficiently skilled iu the occult sci- ences, anil not chousing to consult the gardener or his heibal they mistook either the hellebore or the lauiel ( tree of m- murtul glory 1 lor the still moie pleasing and charm- fraught tree ot earthly love, and gathered a potent quantity of tile deadly ingredient, wilh which they imbued their cake. Ot this thev all thiee partook, and tu make the spell woik, placed, also a potlioii under their pillow.- The effect was mote sudden than they supposed it would be, for HOUSE OF LORDS, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15. The Bishop of GLOCESTRR presented petitions from the dioceses of Glocesler and St. David's, from theClergv of Brecon and Cardigan, against granting the privileges claimed by the Catholics.— Several other petitions were also presented, tending to the same object.— Lord MiLViLtE presented peti- tions against the East India Monopoly, from Edinburgh, Montrose, and Stirling; and the Duke of NORFOIIK one on the same subject from Birmingham, which having been signed by the { High Bailiff only, - and not with individual signatures, could be received only as his petition. HOUSE * OF COMMONS. Several petitions were presented against the Catholic Claims ; among them One from '- Lancaster'' county, signed by 14 or 15,1) 00 nauies,— Daniel Lee was committe. a lo Newgate for gross prevarication On his examination before the Wey- mouth Election Committee. The House in a Committee on the Assistant Chancellor's bill, Lord CASTI. EREACS proposed that the salary of this officer should be £ 5000 a year, one half to be paid by the Lord Chancellor, the. other 25001. to be provided for out of the dead fund arising froin suitors'money. This occasioned a discussion ; when it was agreed tiiat tbe report should be received, and Ihe Bill taken into further consideration on Monday next. TUESDAY'— FEBRUARY 16. Several petitions were presented lor opening the Trade to India, and against the Catholic Claims.— Sir J. SHAW gave notice, tliist on Monday he would move lor leave to bring in a Bill,- enacting that all Manufacturers should affix th'ir names and places of abode to their Manufactures, and tint no Ma- nufacturer should put to hi » fabric any name but his own. Mr. ADDINC. TON brought iu a Bill to amend the Local Mi- litia Act, which was read a first, anil ordered to be read a second time this day se'nnight, aud to be printed. The Local Tokens Bills was read a third time, and passed. WEDNESDAY— FEBRUARY 17. The'Call of the House, which stood for this day, was post- poned to Wednesday next.— Petitions were presented against the Catholic Claims.— The House in a Committee on the Copper Exportation Prohibition Bill, two amendments were adopted, the one confining the prohibition to manufactured Copper ; the other stipulated that it should contiune only so long as hostilities existed with tbe United States. The CHANCEMOR of the EXCHEQUER brought up a Bill to repeal the Act for prohibiting the Manufacture of Staieh, Powder- blue, See. from Corn or Grain, & c. Read a first time. The Hon. Mr, BENNETT, seeing a noble Lord ( Palmerston) in his place, said, that in looking over the papers which had been presented to the House, respecting the casualties of tbe army, be observed, on a comparison of the last accounts with those oflormer years, that there appeared to be a defi- ciency of 6,000 men, not. accounted for either by death or otherwise ; he wished to know to what this apparent inaccu- racy was attributable '— Lord PAI. MERSTON answered, that the ' returns of the casualties had been made out from the re- turns which had been made to the Adjutant General's office He believed the real casualties were always under the number reported.— Mr. BENNETT having pressed for a more definite answer, Lord PALMERSTON said, that the documents which had been furnished to the House were the best which could be obtained from the Adjutant- General's Office. If the Hon. Gentleman wanted any further information lie was at liberty to move for such papers as be might think proper. Sir S. ROMILLY, after a speech of considerable length and great ability, obtained leave lo bring in a Bill to alter so much of the statute of King William III. as made it a capital felony to steal in a dwelling- house to the amount of 5s.— The honourable and learned gentleman, in the coorse of his speech, remarked upon others of our laws, which, from tbeir extreme cruelty, were not in modern times carried into execution, and yet which still remained a disgrace upon our statute books. He particularly alluded to that which affected persons attainted of high treason. By this law the sent- ence pronounced npon the offender when convicted was of the most horrid description : it was, that he should be taken from the place of trial to the place of execution ou a hurdle, where he was to be hanged by the neck, but not till he was dead, and while yet living, that he should be cut down, his bowels taken out and burnt in his presence; and, finally, that bis body should be quartered, and those quarters be at the disposal of Iris Majesty: and so religiously was this law adhered to, that in one particular iusiance, tbe life of an individual was saved from the omission of the ivoids 44 ill bis presence" ( in allusion to the act of embowelling) by the Judge, in the sentence. The person to whom he alluded was Colonel Walker, who vvas connected with the Rye House Plot, on whose case a writ of error w- as taken to the Court ol King's Bench, and afterwards to the Couit of Chancery, and his sentence, in consequence of the omission alluded to, was reversed.— From the aiguments adduced iu the discussion of that ease, it was contended that it was utterly impossible to carrv the words of the Act into effect, inasmuch as it was not possible that a human being could exist to w. tness Ihe spectacle contemplated. This, however, was distinctly dis- proved, by the adduction of the case of Harrison, one of the regicides of Charles- 1. who actually suffered the punishment, and while his bowels were tearing from his body, rose up and struck the executioner; but even ilthis bad not been the case, it was held, that the Judge had no discretion, and was bound toexecute the law as it existed. He was ready to admit, that at latter periods no such horrible executions were exhibited, except by accident, and such instances had occulted ; but surely it could never be endured, with any degree of patience, that the unfortunate wretch, who was doomed to suffer death, should be exposed to the most horrid tortures by Ibe mere inattention or carelessness of an executioner, while the Judge had no discretion whatever. Il was true, that from the increasing humanity of the present times, the dreadful sentence of the law was seldom put into execution ; but what other effect could it produce, he would ask, but that of 1' rightell- ing the wretched culprit, when all those barbarities were denounced against him by the Judge ? Nor was this the only evil; the Judges, it seems, could use no discretion in those cases; they were bound to pronounce the dieadlul sentence of the law, while the mitigation of punishment was left to the care, and the aggravation to ihe negligence, of the executioner. Nor were the additional cruelties, sometimes exercised on those occasions, always lo be attributed to negligence. Loid Bacon had recorded, that in the time of Queen Elizabeth, they weie generally exceeded by the barbarities practised in oilier countries; nnd Camden related, that in Babington's con- spiracy, when fourteen individuals, found guilty of high tieasiin in that reign, wete left for execution, Ihe seven first who suffered were so cruelly tormented, that the Queen was obliged to interfere, and to forbid the repetition of similar atrocities on, tbe remaining convicts. The Hon. and Learned Gentleman theu quoted a similar instance of barbarity in the re hellion of 1146, when a Gentleman of ihe name of Tow iisey, who tvas executed foi- high treason, aud whose head was after- wards hung at Temple bar— was cut duwn after hanging only- six minutes— was brought alive to tne. block, when the executioner slabbed him several times in the bieast, and at last dispatched him by cutting his throat. Tire Hon. and Learned Gentleman then proceeded to trace the origin of that barbarous law; and he tound it in tbeieien. of Edward III. who, to the eternal disgrace of his memory, first inflicted it on Henry Prince of Wales, at Slnewsbury, and afterwards in London, on William Wallace, the gallant hut unfortunate defender of his country; anil ever since tfiat proof of the barbarity ofa Sovereign in those daik ages, had continued to sully our national Statutes. He then adverted to tbe cases ot petty- treason, in which the punishment was foimeily the same, although it had gone into disuse by ihe glowing in- dulgence tif the limes, but it was not formally abolished nil the year 1709. The next useless barbarity in the punishment of high treason was, that which rela'ed to forfeiture of property, the corruption of blood, so that neither the innocent, children of the offending man, nor arry ot his col- lateral relatives, could derive any right ol inheritance from him. He was, in fact, according to tile technical expression oi law - writers, to be considered as a man lo w hom no pedigree Could be traced. Tbe Hon ami Learned Gentleman, afiei having dwelt some tune on that subject, said he would be ashamed lo take up any moie of Ihe time of the House, although he could quo'. e several passages from Mr. Justice Blaeksit. ne, m favour of bis opinion Sir Samuel also obtained leave lo bring in a Bill to alter the laws respecting high' tieason; and another to take away corruption ot blood in such cases. Bonaparte, it is said, has been very much incenscd against Austria, for appointing Count de Sladion the Military Commissary. It may be recollected, that in 1809, Bonaparte termed M. de Stadionin the . Moniteur, The Thomas Paine of Germany, because he had caused a number of Anli- Corsican pamphlets to be circulated in that country. The report of the Swedish Minister concludes in the following terms:— 44 The Independence of the Swedish dominions is the constant object of your Majesty's cares ; and no sacrifice must be reckoned too costly bv the Swedes, to attain that great and important result. Your Majesty bas rejected the degrading treaty which it was wished to make you subscribe; you have placed yourself above a subservient and versatile policy ; and you bave not feared to make your appeal on the question to the courage, tbe loyalty, the patriotism, and the honour of the nation. Your Majesty has formed a just opinion ofthe Swedes, and your reward is in the unbounded confidence which they have placed in your wisdom. The vessel of tbe Slate, navigating a stormy sea, and assailed hy the tempest, was long in danger of shipwreck ; your Mnjesty took Ibe helm, and, seconded hy your sou, you have had the happiness, in spite of the shoals, with which her route was interspersed, to bring her into pori. I present this sketch, iu order to enlighten those persons, who, always uneasy with regard to their future fate, feel alarmed at tbe slightest adverse occurrence, and imagine that they have reached land only to enjoy in peace aH the conveniences of life. Your Majesty has promised liberty to the Swedes ; you will keep your word. The cottaee of the poor, as well as the palace of the rich, shall enjoy that inestimable blessing Arbitrary authority can never pene- trate thither ; and by night, as well as by day, the law shall guard all its approaches. Proud of all their rights, united to their Sovereign, the Swedes will march to meet their enemies. The recollection nf their illustrious ancestors, and the justice of their cause, shall he the pledges tif their success." A philanthropist, who is a gentleman of the'name of Webb, appeared during last week in N orwich, and distributed a ' considerable sum of money in various amounts to fhe lower Classes, almost indiscriminately. On Tuesday the yard of the Angel Inn was so ttironged by the poor, that ft- became necessary to place two peace officers al the hack and front entrances. 11 ring the principal part of the day, Mr. W. gave to all ap plicants donations of 5s. and 7s. 6d. On Wednesday he committed various sums to individuals for private distribution, and on that eveiiiiflg his charities, divided in ten pounds, five pouuds, and onC pound notes, ex- ceeded one hundred pounds. He left Norwich, for Yarmouth, on Thursday, placing a considerable sum in a banking- house at the former place. Many rumours and conjectures are afloat respecting the motives of this singular course of charity, and it is current that 12,000f. is thus annually distributed solely from motives of benevoleuce. Petitions from the counties of Worcester, Hereford, Gloucester, and Brecknock, are preparing to be presented to both Houses, praying for atl Act of General Inclosure, as the surest means of procuring bread corn for the necessary subsistnnce of the people. The Board of Agriculture, we understand, are likewise preparing a similar petition . Trench Alliance.— The Swedish Minister, M. En- gerstrom, in his recent Report to his Sovereign, says, 44 The alliance of France, exacting as it does the forfeiture of independence, gradually leads to all those sacrifices which annihilate the prosperity- of States. In order to become her ally, it is necessary to have no connection with England, to substitute for thc revenue arising from Custom- houses and the profits of commerce, taxes in constant progression imposed for the purpose of enabling her to support the wars ill which her capricious policy has involved her for the last eight years. If Sweden had submitted to her will, we should now find Swedes in Spain, as we find there Germans, Italians, and Poles. We should find them even in Turkey, if the Emperor Napoleon had overcome the Emperor Alexander." %. RANKRUPTS, FEBRUARY 13.

Dr. Henderson, of Golden- square, London, having paid a visit to this woman, in company with Mr. Lawrence and ariothei gentleman, has published a narrative, in which he states her to be a complete impostor. As we have frequently had occasion to copy accounts of her apparently miraculous case, we are induced to give an abstract of Dr. H's Observations, and leave our readers to form their own opinions.— The Doctor founds his reasons for thinking she has been acting deceptively, upon the following grounds:— 1 From the natural and healthy appeaiance of her fac^. 2.— The strength of her pulse ( 94 firm and regular) mus- cles and voice. 3.— The moisture of her mouth, nostrils, eyes, and whole surface of skin, excretions which in a healthy person have been found to amount to sixty five ounces in a day. Allowing by disease Ihey were reduced lo half this quantity, they would still be sufficient to consume tbe person of Ann Moore ul a few weeks. 4.— The eutireness of her intellectual faculties : — w hereas long continued fasting has always been found among the pre- disposing causes of Insanity. 5.— Her 44 notorious immoral character," in the former pait of her life; and her own confession that she once, through imposition, passed for a religious person, merely for Ihe sake of worldly gain. From wnieh confession he pre- sumes she would not scruple to act that or any other part agaiu from ihe same motive. 6— The obvious interest which she and her attendants have in supporting the deception. From 44 labouring under ihe greatest distresses" she was enabled last year to place the sum of ,£ 400 in the Stocks, from the exhibition of her person. f.— The imperfect manner in which she was watched. The watching is the circumstance w hich has produced Ihe most implicit belief in her story among the common people in the neighbourhood ; but Dr. H. found lhat almost every one who cairn- to offer Ins services, on this occasion, was permitted to undertake the tasK, and that, during the 16 days that the watch was continued, not few er i ban 80 or 90 different pe rsons : officiated; so lhat among this number it is highly probable that tnere we. e some of Ann Moore's private friends who connived at her eatingand drinking'. 8 - Herd ead of a repetition of the watching— Her atten- dant calls toe first winching 14 the trial of her lile." 9 _!! ei dread of all experiments whatever. On one occasion she refused to allow a mirror to he held to her face to examine her respiration. At another time she broke a thermometer, exclaiming •' no more experiments Pit me ! I have suffered enough from experiments already." She now also refuses to all - iv any one to examine her mouth 10 — Her saying 44 that she believes the lime may come when God will permit h'ei to eat."— She is thus prepared for a discovery that may take place. 11.—' I he acknowledged fact that she is now in the- same, or nearly the same, condition of body as when she commenced tiei alleged last. Her countenance was not fa; removed from the appearance of health, nor was ber abdomen 44 so remui k- ably sunk in" as was declared by a Mr Giainger. 12 phe variations and contradictions in her statements This she did in several instances to Dr. H. and his companions, but our limit » will not allow us lo give them. 13. The inconsistency of her actions w ith her statements. She moved a finger, in their presence, which sue declared to have been in a per eel state of contraction. When a Mi- Thompson threatened her with a repetition of tiie watching, she completely lorgot, her situation, and raised herself upright in bed, griping her fists, and ttirew her arms and head about with as inu'cb ease and strength as a healthy woman. The Doctor finishes with saying other racts and arguments might be adduced, and that it is his firm opinion, that the order of nature is not subvened in tbe person of Ann Moure; but on the contrary, that he believes her abstinence is feigneo, and that her suffeiings are, in a groat measn e, simulated.
