WEDNESDAY, MAY 12. This morning a mail from Heligoland arrived, by which we have received letters to the 9th iuslant. Ac- cording to some of the private letters, there was some fighting between the French aud Russians, in the neigh- bourhood of Cuxhaveu, 011 the 7th.— Other accounts state, that the Russians were obligetl to retreat, and that the French had entered Cuxiiaveu. An accouut had liee i received by Geueral Tettenborn of the death of Prince Kutusoff of Smolensko, the illustrious Com- mander in Chief of the Russian armies. Count Witt- genstein had been appointed to succeed him. The private letters received by the Gottenburgh mail which arrived on Monday night, state, with con- siderable confidence, that all differences have been adjusted between Sweden and Denmark. A11 Aide- de- Camp of the Crown Prince of Sweden, who is arrived in town, is said to bring a confirmation of this import- ant intelligence. The Crown Prince left Gotteaburgh on the 4tli to proceed to L'arlscroua, where he was ex- pected lo embark for the Continent. According to the litest accounts received at Gotten- burgh, Dantzic continued to hold out; but, it is said, that the Russians and Prussians were making prepara- tions to storm it with 40,000 men. asserted, he was beat back himself with very great loss, upon which he retreated precipitately to Villana, and afterwards towards Fuenta la Higuera. This en- gagement took place on the 13th ultimo, and furnishes another proof that the French official reports should bo received with extreme caution. Nothing is heard in Portugal but. the busy din of preparation for the campaign, the dreadful note of war. The army has recovered from the effects ofthe retreat, the cavalry is getting in order, and a new battering train is on the way from Lisbon to the army. AU was bustle in the Commissariat. Sir R.

The Friends of German Independence— Monday the Friends of German Independence dined at the City of Londou Tavern, his Royal Highness the Duke of Sussex in the chair— The cuiupauy consisted of near 500 persons, w ho sat down to dinner.— After his Royal Highness had given « I he King— God bless him," which was drank w ith en- thusiastic applause, he observed, that previous to giving the next toast, he should request his Excellency Count Minister to give some information ou a subject which, he was persuaded, would prove highly interesting lo the meet- ing, aud would not cause the toasi he had to propose lo be drank wiih less satisfaction— Count Minister Ihen inform- ed the meeting, that lie had been commissioned by the Prince Regent lo subscribe 1 be sum of i,' l0ti0 ou his behalf, and to assure the meeting its object had his best wishes.— The health of " the Prince Regent" was tlieu drunk « ith great applause— The Queen and Family.— The Duke of York and the Army— The Duke of Clarence, and the Wooden Walls of Old England.— The Emperor of Russia. — Tbe Duke of Kent, not only as Duke of Kent, but as a Prince of the House of Hanover.— The Duke of Kent then gave tbe health of the cliaiiinau, which was drank with acclainatiou The Duke of S, ia-. ex expressed his warmest gratitude. He said, the cause in which they were engaged was tiie most important in the period of the pre- sent war: it was not the cause, of an individual, but the glory, the independence, the liberty, uf the German nation He had heard that the idea of liberty was foreign to the Germans : he had heard this falsehood with astonishment. Englishmen indeed were well acquainted with liberty, and he need not defiue it to an English assembly. He had himself, like every Brilou, sucked il from his mother's breast; and even the foreigner who lived in this country was equally acquainted with the blessing; for it w as ihe glorious privilege of England, lhat the slave who landed here was a slave no longer. Still the ideas of liberty were various, though the sentiment was the same, aud universal. If he was asked to express it, he would use lire words of the poet, which showed the feelings of the freeman more strougly than any language which he could use : " For what are fifty, nay u thousand, slaves, Mateh'd to the vigour of a single arm That strikes for liberty : that strikes to save Its fields from fire,— its children from the sword,— Its daughters from pollution—• And its large honours from eternal infamy ?" This was his own notion of liberty ; and this, he was sure, was felt hy all the German nation. This was the feeling that conquered at Plataea, at Marathon, atSalamis; audit' these examples would not suffice, fresh examples must be created. He felt a hop , that Providence would light up a fresh star, that should shine success and glory to the world. He had bad frequent opportunities of seeing the loyalty, fidelity, aud bravery of theGermau nation ; and so earnest did he feet in the cause, that he would say, that if ha forgot the cause of Germany, might all the company I forget him ! The present cause had moderation for ils basis, and not tlie establishment of tyranny: it was in- j tended for the welfare of mankind. Helioped the German nation would he inspired with the eveilasting haired of Hannibal towards Rome; and that Frauce would at last be forced to cry mercy for the iniquities which it had prac- tised. The Royal Duke then gave as a toast, The great cause of Germany and Gerni'. iu independence.— The next toast was— The Duke of Cambridge— Success to the Han- sealic Legion.— The Spauii. li Patriots, aud may their suc- cess be finally cvowued by replacing their lawful Sovereign on the throne— Count Munstcr, mid the cause of Hauover. — Count Munster returned thanks, and, IU doing so, de clared, that although the Germans had been forced to join the tyrant of Frauce, yet the attachment they felt to Great Britain had never been eradicated.— Lord Wellington, and tbe Army iu Ihe Peninsula. The Duke, lo proiudte the conviviality of the evening, proposed some German songs: one was sung; after which, his Royal Highness gave a German toast—" Teutsche Weihen and Ma'dclieus," or, German wives and German maids." His Royal Highness then gave, 11 Miss Platotl," lowborn lie said the cause of Germany owed much, as the hopes or' obtaining her fair hand had encouraged many to deeds of valour, At Ibis late hour of the evening he vonld uot require that the glasses should all be bumpers, but he should leave to every gentleman to fill the lady to the best of liis abilities.— " Prosperity to the Bank of England."— The Treasurer repurted that the subscript ions nuw made a total uf £ l6,000. The Vice- Chauceiior sat yesterday morning in the Court of Chancery. There were eight causes sel down iu the list, but neither Counsel nor Solicitor attended in any of them. They were of course all struck out. eluded by moving the following question : " That Lord Viscount Sidmouth, by his unprecedented conduct, in departing from immemorial usage, by refusin" to Insert, in lb a London Gazette, the dutiful and loyal Address of this Court to her Royal Highness ihe Princess of Wales with her most gracious answer l hereto, » u that our regard aud veneration for Ihe virtues of her Royal Highness might be preserved in official security, and remain capable of bi'in" at anv time resorted to as the recorded opinion uf the G'tlv of London, has evinced a marked contempt for Ihc feelings and opinions of this city and the count ry at large ; und that by so suspicions an exercise of his discretion, has seemed tn insinuate a belief that the triumph of the Princess uf Wales over a conspiracy so foul aud detestable could have been displeasing to Ihe Prince Regent, and has thereby offered a gross Indignity to the Princess of Wales, aud cast a most invidious and odious imputation on the honour and character of his Royal Master;" In which he was seconded by Mr. Fave'tl. Mr. Dixon opposed the motion, as being one which had for its object to reagitate a question" already dis- posed of; with respect to tile question of ri'lit, he ' id vised geutlemcn to be careful, whilst they so'streiit:- ously contended for their own rights, that they tiid liot invade the rights of other persons. It had been re- peatedly stated that the Gazette was the King's Paper, lhat the City had no right iu it, and it h id always been asked, as a matter of courtesy, lo have Addresses and Answers inserted in the Gazette. Fears had been ex- pressed lest the Court should be deprived of any of its privileges; he had no fears oil that head. D" the Court did lose any of its privileges, it would be by de- manding as rights what had heretofore been granted as favours. Mr. Dijon concluded by moving the previous question.— Mr. Jacks seconded the Amendment, and observed this was the first, time lie had ever heard this privilege contended for as a right. The case of Ad. tlresses was different from Petitions, I'oUtums w.: a only presented to the Throne; and would it be said that because Petitions were inserted in the Gazette' that therefore all Addresses to any branch of the Fatni* ly should also be inserted there.— The motion bein" put, the Lord Mayor declared it to he carried iu the negative; u hereupon a division was demanded, and granted, and on the tellers reporting, the numbers were declared to be— For the motion 1 Alderman, 55 Com- moners, and 2 tellers— 58;-— Against it, 16 Aldermen 74 Commoners', and 2 tellers— 92— Majority 34; by which the Court decided tuat the original question should not be put.

The following anecdote, respecting the Earl of St. Vincent, has been taken from a Plymouth paper: " In Ihe armament of 179U, his Lordship, ( then Sir John Jervis, K. B.) had his flag flying on bourd Ins Majesty's - hip Piince. His quarter deck was full of young gentlemen lie. longing lo some of the first families in the kingdom, who made the greatest interest to place their sous as midship- men under him. On the reduction of the armament, each Hag ollicer then employed, was allowed, hy the Lords Com- missioners- of the Admiralty, lo recommend a Lieutenant aud Midshipman for promotion. As many of these gentle- men had passed their examination for Lieutenants, each flattered himself with being'. lie fortunate one, n:' coi ding to his connections; but to their great surprise, Sir John se- lected a young man, the sou of an old Lieutenant, and wrote him the following letter: — " SIR,— 1 named you for the Lieutenant I was allowed to promote, because you had merited Ihe good opinion of vour superiors, and that you were the sou i', f an old oliicer'uii l worthy man in no great affluence; a steady perseverance iii tbat conduct which has caused you to be thus distinguished is the most likely means to carry you forward iu the pro fession; for 1 trust other officers ol" iny rank will obsene the maxim I d o— lo prefer the sons uf brot her officers when . deserving, before anv others.

' Settlements,— At the late Quarter Sessions for Wilt- shire. an appeal was tried, in which the parish ot West Craumore, Somerset, we.- e the appellants and Moiicktou- Deve. reD, Wilts, the respondents. The question iu be determined was an interesting one of settlement law — The pauper, who was removed to the parish of West Cranmore, Somerset, had rented a house in Moucktoa- Deverell, at the rent of 3/. per annum, and during one year of his tenancy took little uiore than an acre of land to plant potatoes upon, to bo ploughed ami manured iiv the landlord, al a rent which, together with tiie 3/. for the house, amounted to more than 10/. Ilie sum required hy the statute of Charles II. to rentier a pauper irremov- able by renting a tenement, and, coupled with a resilient" 1 of 40 days, enabling him thereby to gain a settlement" Several witnesses proved that the value of the land* without manuring aud ploughing, was only 40S a„ and would not have made up the requisite sum. The question theicfore was, whether the ploughing and ma- nuring by the landlord was to he considered asa pari of the annual value, or was to be deducted from it. '! h3 Bench, conformably with adecisiou at ihe last Epiphany Sessions held at Devizes, decided that the plougutr- aud manuring was to be deducted iu estimating Ihe value of the tenement, and that the pauper had not "- ained a settlement in MoiiclUpn- DevetelL— The question, how. ever, iu this cos.', as weli as that of lite last Sessions is to undergo the review of the Court of Kiii'-' s iie.. cb! • LONDON* FRIDAY MAY 14.

The F. arl had two wounds in his head, which bled freely, and Mr. Wortley Stewart was also hurt. The Mtirrhiuness sat next to Earl Goner, but It appears from the French accounts, that the allies were the assailants in the battle of the 2d, and that they had determined, as soon as they heard that Bonaparte had debouched from Hie Tim ringe, to attack him in the plains of Lutzen.

He maintained, tbat this was the proper stage to introduce any thing iu a Commitlee, or otherwise, which could throw additional light and information on this subjtct— This lie thought Ihe more necessary, as lie had heard no amendments on the Bill, which came up to his ideas of lhat security, which ihe warmest advocates for the Bill had admitted lobe necessary. Lord DYSA RT wasof opinion that on this question, which was of ibe greatest magnitude, inquiry ofthe most deliberate nature should take place, previous lo any decisive measure being adopted. L. ordC'ASTLEREAGII thought that there was now existing iu the minds of the areat body of the Catholics a spirit of conciliation which ii was his earnest wish lo meet.— With " if. u. tr i i i 1 respect 10 the present motion, he was against it, as tending The cavalry of the All. es made some desperate . l0 t!, tllte , l) 0 m'ucl, delny. an'd he must Seclare, that, in his opinion, if Parliament were to separate without giving both Catholics aud Protestunss a proof of what it inteuyed to do, fortunately received no injury, except lhat of being very much alarmed, and almost smothered with dust.

SATURDAY, MAY 15. The Gazette of this evening contains a list of forty- seven vessels, chiefly American, taken and detained by British cruisers. Yesterday, dispatches were received from Sir H. Wellesley, at Cadiz, containing an official account of the operations ofthe Allies in Spain. In the course of the day, Government issued the following Bulletin:— " Omening Street, May 14. " A dispatch has been received this morning al Lord Castlereagh's Office, from Sir Henry Wellesley, dated the 30111 ultimo, in w hich Sir Henry Welleslev transmits tlie copy of a dispatch from General F. lio, dated April 15th, | fromCastella, communicating ihe details of the different i affairs between the Ailied ami the French'troops on the 1 1 lib, 13th, and 1.1th of that month, on the ground between Castella ami Fuente In Higuera, which terminated in the repulse of the French with very considerable loss, aud their retreat to the iust- nieiitinued place. " The Spanish corps, under Lieutennnt- General Whit- tingham, and the 27th regiment, appear to l ave had the principal share in the action of the 13th. General Elio stales Ihc loss of the enemy to have exceeded 2000 men in one day. No official account had been received at Cadiz of the British loss, but private accouuts state it to be upwards of 500 in killed and wounded. " Sir H. Welleslcy also states, that General Mina liad, on the 31st of March, fallen in wilh a French corps of 1000 men, ef which he made prisoners 30 officers and 6sr> men ; few of Ihe remainder made their escape. This affair took place in Ihe neighbourhood of Lerra." The French official account of Ihe great battle of Lutzen has been received. It was a tremendous conflict, and the slaughter 011 both sides was probably as great as Ihe battle of Borodino. The last account left the respective armies on two lines parallel with each other. Bonaparte was at Naumberg on the 29th, and on the same day the Emperor of Russia antl King of Prussia were at Altei, burgh. There were some sharp affair* on the 20th mid SOtU, but these are not alluded to, and were, of course, of no great importance. On the Ist, Bonaparte, with Berthier, was, nt Weissenfels; Beau- harnois at Merseberg ; JMarmout at Naumberg « Ecr- trand at Stohlsen ; soult tit Jena t and Maissou at Halle. The first operation of Bonaparte, on the lut of May, was lo get possession ot llie plain, which extends from the heights of Weissenfels to the Elbe. The allies sin- wed nothing lint cavalry, a'd occupied the heights. There vt as evidently an obstinate battle on that day, and part of the French army, under Girard, which took Ihe direction of Ihc road to Began, was at one time bent back. However the French entered the plain, and the respective armies made those movements which brought 011 the battle of Lutzen on the2d. lu the battle of the 1st, ibe enemy declare they only o> t 90 men. Hut among them was Marshal Hessieica ft u'ce of Istria): he was killed Hy a cannon bull. ( river Elster at thr They icon firm the | * Zeiiz. Bonaparte appears not to - hate expected this movement sooner than the 5lh, and to have thought that by a previous attack upon Leqisic he should dis- concert the allies, get to the right bank of the Elster, and take them en. reverse. But Ilie passage of the F.' sftr by tile allies on tjieVd forced him to change his disposition. Beauhnrnois, wilh Ihe centre, in the village of Kaia : Marmont 011 the right; Bonaparte behind Ney in the centre. The baltle began between nine and ten ill the morning, and continued till night. The enemy's account of it is not a very clear one, but it is evident lhat for the greater part of the day, vic- tory was in favour of the allies, but that it was at length decided against them bvia movement of Gen. Bertrand's, towards night, in their rear. Kaia, which formed the centre ofthe French positions, aud wax defended by Bonaparte, Ney, Girard, and Sou- ham, was the scene of the most sanguinary conflict. The allies pierced it several times, and several times Bonaparte sent reinforcements to repair the losses sus- tained, and strengthen Ney, Kaia was taken aud retaker; but after stating that " it remained in the enemy's power," the account says, " that General Ricard order- ! ed il to be retaken, and it was retaken."— Finding him- self pressed with such desperate energy in this point, Bonaparte sent orders to Beauharnois to make a slrong attack upon the left, and Macdoliald to endeavour to cut off the attention of Ihe allies from their cenlte to their right and their reserve. It was in vain. The allies kept their forces aud efforts steady to the centre, and Kaia w as again taken— it was another Aspern. The allies poured fresh troops, and the French centre, com- manded by Bonaparte in person and Ney, gave way. Bonaparte saw that not a moment was to be lost; all the reserve was brought lip to repair the disasters ex- perienced in the'centre—- eighty pieces of cannon were brought up at the same time. The village of Kaia was again taken ; but the Allies again succeeded in re storing the battle in lhat point, and Bonaparte was obliged lo order part of his right to Ihe relief of Ihe j centre. The cavalry of the Allies made some desperate charges against the division from his right, and we collect that it was not able to execute its orders. But Bertrand, who had been sent before the battle to debouch oil the rear of the Allies, who earlv in the battle was seen from afar, but who obviously experi- enced the greatest difficulties in his march, at length, some short time before night fall, entered the line, hen Bonaparte altered the whole of his movements, and brought up all his right, himself pivoting on Kaia. N ight came on, and the Allies retreated. The French confess a loss of 10,000 men, including General Gourie killed, Generals Girard, Brenier, Che- metieau, and Guitlot, wounded— the former mortally. Tbe loss of the Allies is estimated at 25,000 men. The Prince of Meeklcnliurgh Strelilz was killed, but no other general of note 011 the part ol the Allies. Blucher and four other Prussian generals, are reported lo have been wounded. On the 3d the enemy continued his inarch, and on the 6th Bonaparte was at Colditzj Beauharnois at llorta; Marmont behind Colditz; Lauriston marching from Wurtzen to Dresden; Ney at Leipzic; Soult at Altcnburgh) and Bertrand at Rochietz.— At Colditz there was a sharp affair 011 the 51h, and the Allies hav- ing joined a reserve belonging to Miloradovitch's ariny at GersdoriF, near Coldilz, Beauharnois seems to have been roughly handled, and to have been forced to bring up Marmont's division. The Allies then retired towards Horta. Ney is marching to raise tbe blockade of Torgau aud Wittingbuigh. The Allies are falling back upou the Elbe, and as the French confess that they are so inferior themselves in cavalry, we iufer that they retire in good order. * Yesterday, at a meeting of the Freeholders of the County of Middlesex, an Address lo her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales, upon her fortunate escape from- the foul conspiracy against her life and honour, yvas agreed lo almost unanimously— there being only three dissenting voices, amoug whom was Mr. Meliish. A Resolution was moved, that the Address should be pre- sented by the Sheriff, the two County Members, the Mover and Seconder j which, after some observations from Mr. Meliish, 011 the aukward plight he should ap- pear in after the sentiments he had expressed, was carried by a ^ reat majority.— The Thanks of the Meeting were then voted to the Sheriffs and to Mr. Byng; aud, on the motion of Mr. Hunt, a Vote of Censure yvas passed on Mr. Meilish, for his opposition to the proceedings of the day. In the House of Lords last night, Lord Darnley's motion, for an enquiry into the circumstances of tiie war between this country and the United States, was negatived by a majority of 66 ; the numbers being— for the motion £ 9 : against it 125. tholics than the hon, Bart, but li; was happy to find that ihe hou. Bart, would not consent to a measure lhat went al once, to overthrow Hie whqleJabiic of the Protestant Establish ment. There never whtfcii a Bill as required more delibera- tion. The country had a Tight to expect lhat Parliament would obtain all the information that could he obtained 011 this subject ; and as that information could not he obtained without full enquiry, he should support the motion. MR. GR ATTA N, in explanation, denied lhal he had hurried 011 the present Bill. Mr. CANNING observed, when the hon. Bart, brought forward his motion that evening, he was al a loss to know where he would tiud a Member to second it, until hesaiv his right hon friend ( Mr. Ryder) rise for lhat purpose. He would appeai lo any one who heard him whether it would not appear lo the most drivelling idiot, that this motion was made for no other eaTthly purpose except tbat of destroying the Bill, and defeating the recorded opinio-, is of ll. e House. That which the lion. Bart, thought necessary, namely, to call for information from foreign countries lo guide the de- cisions of the British Senate, could not iiave been contem- plated in tbe same light by liis right honourable friend Courts of Justice, and there they were binding. He al .- o positively deuicd Ihe assertion that the Catholics coulil not ; keep faith with Protestants. With respect to the present Bill, it had in general, his approbation. It had all milli- ner of securities in il. But he must obsarve, lhat llie idea of securities held out a very ill compliment to tiie Clergy ot the Established Church, whose high character and vigilance ought to be supposed sufficient to protect the Church ; and lie hoped that the purity of the Protestant Religion was atone sufficient to protect itsell. How was it possible, lie asked, for Catholics, were they so disposed, to ovtlim n Ibe Constitution, w hich had a Pai liament to protect it? And, if 1 lie Parliament was tillable, was ihere not a whole nation behind Ihe Parliament -, and were there not numerous sects thai would protect the Count iiutioii ? Between Ihe probable danger and the certain advantages there was no comparison w hatever.— And was it mi advantage lo train the gratitude and affection of a high- mitided people ? If be thought this Bill would fail in its object, he would hesitate in assenting to il. Put he was suie it would auswi r every useful purpose of conciliation and national improvement, lie hoped then lhal we would proceed in ibis great work of atonement, of justice, aud of policy ; and let there be one spot ou w l. icli our affections should unite.

The names uf the Members w ere called over, which uccu- pied the Huuse till six o'clock. CATHOLIC RILL. Sir J. C. II IPPISLEY trusted that lie was not less a friend to the Catholic Cause than any man in the House ; but per- haps consistency was a ci ime ; if it was, however, tie should persevere in il. He had always been uf opinion, lhat no le- gislative measure could be adopted towaids the Catholics, unlessa previous enquiry, and a report founded 011 such en- quiry, should be made, lu prevent I hose miscunecptious and those misrepresentations which had gone abroad, from ex- isting any longer Tooblain such enquiry was the object uf the prlsent motion, as would appear when lie had slated what tbat motion w as, and which was as follows :— 1st, To move for a Cuniniittre tu examine inlo tbe state uf the laws respecting his Majesty's Calhutic subjects; 2d, As tu Ihe state of I he Catholic Clergy, their numbers, and the naluic uf their intercourse and dependance tin Ihe See of Rome; 3d, For a report of Ihe state of the Catholics in the colonies aud 4th, For a Commit tee of 21 Members to he appointed, whom he was piepared to name, to make these enquiries, and 10 report the same from lime to time to ihe H. use — When he proposed this, however, he was told he would, by the delay which llie measure wuuld cause, endanger the safety ot Ihe Catholic Bill. He could not see lhal such effect wuuld arise from granting his inution ; but if it should 1 veil do so, il wuuld unly ruin a Bill for which he could have uu respect— a Bill differing most materially from any tl. iug which he hud expected from his right hon. fiiend ; it was a measuie which was viewed by the Catholics with borrur Witli respect lu the clause which Mr. Canning had proposed to add to the Bill, he wished the House not tu disguise tu itself that there were 40 Catholic Bishops, a number of Ca tholic Clergy, and an immense uumbet- of Catholic Laity, who would sooner mount the scaffold thau accede to the propositions contained in that clause.' The hon Baronet then proceeded at considerable length to urge olher objec- tions lo Ihc pioposed Bill; aud obseivcd. lhat if these objections s butt Id art est the progress uf Ihe Bill, he shuuld consider it as a happy arrcstatiun, fur, in ils present state, he must protest in tbe strongest measure against liic Rill.— After suine uther remai ks, tie cuucluded with moving for the appointment of a Committee for the purpose already slated. Mr. GR ATTA N thought the motion inadmissible, hut gave his huu friend his hearty thanks fur the support he had given ihe great cause : ii debate Ifa Select Cummitiee was appointed, that would be it lejecliuu uf the Bill, fur it would be declaring Iliat the w hole Catholic. Bill niuM be suspended until euqtiiiy should lit made into alt t tie laws, all Ihe insti- tutions, iiv. lhat hail e> er been made respecting ihe Ca- tholics— a work that would take au years before il could be completed. This would be ivoise than' ri jecting ibe Hill, because il would be rejecting il with an explunatinu which wuuld slnllify ihe pro* ceilings of thai House. The clause in ihc Bill gmuuuted to a i i. 111 pietc domestic security, auil a domestic nomination, without adding to Ihe power uf itie Cruwn. It was a Bill of Catholic Emancipation, and, at the same time, was one of cumplete security. He therefore did not see how the Bill could be rejected without rejecting the Catholic Claims altogt t her. With these iuiprcssious, he would move Ihe Older ot the Day fur tlie second reading of the Hill. Mr. T. RYDER said, if this Bill should pass into a law, it would enable (' tithe, lies to become Members of Parliament and Ministers of State, without any pros isiou for tbe pro- lection ofthe Protestant Establishment. He could not see what additional securities there ronld he in oaths proposed in Ihe Hill. He should support the motion of the hon. Bart, because a Committee uf Inquiry was absolutely'necessary. Ni. ui in could tie a more consistent friend uf the Roman Cn- L'S a it would be most tnischievuus. Mr. CA n NI SO, in explanation, declared that, should the Cathulics refuse to meet Ihe boon offered to them by Parlia- ment in Ihe way which it ought to be met, he would then take his stand wilh Parliament, and oppose their claims as firmly as if he had never advocalcd them. Sir J. C. HIPPISLEY then rose, and, amidst loud cries of Question, Question, proceeded shortly to reply, when the House divided :— For the motion, 187— For the amendment, 235— Majority 48,— Al half- past Two the House adjourned. WEDNESDAY, MAY 12. MANCHESTER POLICE BILL. SirS. ROMILLY was against the principle of the Bill, in- asmuch as it went to introduce stipendiary Magistrates in the place of that respectable class, who iu { his country dis- charged the - functions uf Magistracy gratuitously.— Mr. BATHLHST said, although he highly approved of Ihe prin- ciple uf preferring Ihe services of independent gentlemen acting gratuitously, to paid M agist- ates, yet there were some cases iu which it could not be adopted. He conceived the case of Manchester lo be an exception, and that the present Bill was necessary.— The House Ihen divided:— For the Bill, 4;— Against it, 23— Majority 24. Mr. W. VV Y'NN brought in his Bills for regulating the trial of Controverted Elections, and for the more regular con- veyance of the Writs directed to the Returning Officers.— Those Bills were rend a first, and urdered to be read a second time to- morrow. The Leather Tax Bill was fixed for Tuesday next. THURSDAY, MAY 13. The ATTORNEY- GENERAL ( Sir W. Garrow) took the oaths aud his seat.— The Election Regulation Bill and Election Writ Conveyance Bills were reml a second time, committed, the Reports received, and ordered tube taken into further consideration 011 Wednesday next. The Huu- e went into a Committee on, the Martinique ami Gnadatuupe Sugar Acts. Mr. VANSITTART moved a Resolution—" That Sugars, the produce of the conquered is lauds,' should be allowed to be sold for home consumption, on ptiyiii- g a dutyol 5 per cent, above the Sugars, the produce of the " British Plantations;" atso a resolution " for imposing a duly uf| al. 6d. per cu t on clayed Sugars;" agreed to. The IliHise resumed, the resolutions were report- ed, and Bills ordered accordingly. Mr. UYOER saiti, he had staled his intention of moving a Callof the House for Monday next ; lie now wished Instate, that he intended to persevere in that million, and to continue it from time tu time, till the Cathulic Bill was disposed of ; as* he thought it necessary there shuuld he as full ail attendance as possible,' till a decision w as come tu, either one way or other, on this measure Mr. GRATTAN then moved the Order of the Day, fur the second reading of the Cathulic Relief Bill.— Dr. DUIGENAN rose to uppusc the Bill; which, he contended, could nut be passed w ithuut introducing the supremacy of the Pope, nnd entirely overt u ruing the Constitution of this Country; such was ihe opinion uf the Protestants in Ireland, as would appear ou looking al the Petitions presented to the House, upposing the Catliol- Claims; and uu comparing it with that said lu be tlie Petition of the Irish Protestants iu favour of those Claims ; the first was signed bv upwards of 100,000 persons the latter by about 4, eoo. The Learned Dr. ihen proceeded to contend, lint from the nature of Mie Calliolic Faith, il was impossible the piufessuis cuuld shake off the supremacy oflbe Pope With respect to ihe Oaths imposed by the Bill, therefore, even were they to tnke them, Ihey would not consider them binding towards heretics, but it was vain to suppose lhat they would lake them— as by taking such oaths they would abjure part uf their faith, and they would as suon abjure their whole erred, us any single point. The passing this Bill would he mon- seiviceable lo Bonaparte thau 20 victories on Ihe Continent, since the Pope would elect the Bishops, the Bishups would ordain the Priests and Clergy, tu whom the populace were slaves. The several provisions of this Bill, he contended, would go 10 overturn the Constitution, as established aud acknowledged, from the commencement of Queen Eliza- beth's reign, down to the present time. He then adverted lo the opinion and principles of Mr. Pitt, which, he contended were hostile lo Ihe claims of the Catholics A great deal was said about onr armies and fleets being supplied with Irish* Catholics. Tbe fact was, thai there was su little employment fur labourers in Ireland nnd because they cuuld lit e su much better by beiug soldiers, they eijlistcd, even in spite uf their Priest. lint it was false lo say lliai a umjoiily uf our forces were Catholics; for almost'alt Ihe officers and a gieat majority of the privates, were Protestants. — The learned Doctor next adverted to the mighty power ofthe Pope, which depended, nut uu the extent ui' his territory, but on his influence over Ibe minds uf the people. This slill existed; and if scats in PuriismPnl and the first . offices of the Slate were ] to tie It, <.. 111 open to the Catholics, what use would there be in all the laws which might exist against this puwer. He | quoted several authorities to shew that the Acts, the repeal nf which Ihe Catholics now called fur, were indispeiisihlc fur preserving Ihe Constimtion and tbe Protestant Religion: and he roiileudtd that the Cathulics would not have it in tlieir power to adhere lo those laws that were now about 10 becuacled fur I hem; because Ihey were direclly contrary to tbe tenets and Decrees scut forth from all the Councils. Il was impossible fur a man to be a loyal man who benefit of the cuiiulry. tu serve like htrot's in the Austrian and uther fureigu countries ? — Were they to be deprived of the opportunity of acling the part of patriots, while they were covering them- selves with military glory ? He begged the House to hear llie vuice uf truth and uf policy, and to abandon this system of injustice. Let the House shew its wisdom and forbear- ance, and then indeed their fame would Ife that they were anxious to spread peace and amity over these troubled Inlands. Then, indeed, might they boast of their Constitu- tion, which at present rested nn angry aud eien shifting jealousies, but which then wuuld be as unfading es the holy name of Charity, w ilh w hich it would be inscribed Sir F l l. oon said, Ihe proper lime fur discussing the merits of the Bill uuuld be, when the House went into a Committee on it. As to tbe principle uf ihe Bill it bad been fully rccognized by a large majority of lhat House already. Be contended, that liOSecurities Were necessary, fur he knew very many Catholic Gentlemen of ftom 5 lo £ 30,000 a year, wliu wuuld uot, therefore, be very ready to risque their property hy engaging in plots against the Government. lit: hoped 10 see all invidious distiuctious done awnv among tbe English, Irish, Scotch; nnd Welch. Lord Castlereagh was prepared tu support the expediency of the measure ; and as they were agreed on the principle uf Ihe Bill, l. e hoped there could be no great difficulty in settling ihc details. He hail 110 difficulty in stating, that in Ihe fi r ming of the Bill the Right Hou. Mover of it had taken a very fait- view ofthe details that might be necessary 10 be introduced into it. Tbe course which the Hon. Gentleman had pursued was a judicious one, by looking at what cuuld be granted to the Catholics, without disturbing some fundamental parts of the Constitution, which might have been dangerous, even in Ihe eyes of those who would otherwise have been favourable to it. The measure was most wise, if coupled with reasonable securities, and 110 securities ought to be required of Ihe Catholics w hich their religion would not notoriously permit them to give. As to Ihe oaths, so far as they are securities, ibe Right Hon. Gentleman had framed them so as tu meet every probable danger, at home or from abroad. Bui lie considered the honest prejudices of every sect iu tlie Slate much stronger security than a simple oath. He considered, however, that the Right lion. Gentleman might, as iu the case of the Dis- senters, not defile the total repeal ofthe Test Laws, but to have them suspended from year tu year. He doubted much the expediency of coupling Ihe repeal of Ihe Test Laws with the great measure of granting relief to Ihe Catholics. He never thuught a direct nomination of Catholic Bishops necessary to be established in the Crown ; hut, at least, t lie poweruf approval should be placed there. He was prepared to go along with the Right Hon Gentleman iu thinking il proper to give the Crown the aid of a Board uf Conimis sinners on the appruval of Cathulic Prelates. But, to appoint such a Cummissiun independent uf Ibe Cruwu, would be lo establish ail authority in ihe Country u'ukiiow 11 to the Cutistiiiitinn. He thought, however, the Bill might be so altered as lo render the measure satisfactory to all, fmt he wished the alterations to he proposed by those gentlemen w ho brought the Bill in, as it would then prove much more satisfactory than any amendment proposed by him would be. Mr. RYDER rose, and proceeded lo urge all his former arguments against the Bill, and declared it was a me; . ire which never hail, and never could have, his support.— Mr. PEI-: LE also strouglv opposed the measure, as not calculated to operate as one uf conciliation towards the Catholics — Mr. WILBERFORCE staled, that no person, however long bis experience in that House, could have devised a better way of getting rid ufaquestiun, than the molionoftl. i Hun. Baroaet ( Sir J. C. Ilippisley), and lhat nothing could be more instilling lu Ihe feelings of the House.— Sir J. C. HIPPISLEY opposed the present Bill, ami contended, ilia! Ihe Cummittee lie had proposed would not have uccupied six days. Mr. CANNING apologized fur troubling the House at that late I ; nr, nnd said, thai his amendments he had proposed in order tu forward must efl'i dually the object of the Bill; but he was nut so warmly attached to them, but lhat he should be ready, either in public or in private, lo confer with the Noble Lord, antl should willingly adopt those views which should appear must conducive to produce that effect whicli they both wished. Aston separate provision for tbe Catholics, he was nut convinced of the expediency of it, and should not himself originate it ; it wuuld be productive uf considerable i xpeuce, and involved iu a long detail. However, it was a measure which ought most peculiarly In originate from the Crown He wuuld nul have thus trespassed un liie House, but that hethuughlit neces* ury to reply tu the observations of the Noble Lnrd, as it might otherw ise be thought he did nut receive them in ns friendly a manner as he really did. The Huuse Ihcn divided — For the second reading, 245— For the Amendment, 203— Majority 42. The Bill w as Ihen cummitli il fur io- tnorrow ( this day .)— Adjourned al Half- past Two o'CIock. FRIDAY, MAY 14. The House went into a Coinmittfe nil lie Human Catholic Relief Bill, pro forma, when the consideration ofthe clauses was deferred till Monday.— Mr. VV. FITZGERALD brought forward I he Irish Budgel. The l. oau has been ublaincd 011 very favuiii- able lerms.

Yet the French nr « oiiul. v state, that Beauharnois was on Ihe Elster on the 2d. ' Ihe intelligence from Berlin adds, that iVouiubci g, Ltitzeu, ami Weissenfels weie set 011 fire iu the battle ; that eaily in tiie moruiug Ilie French had pushed a lecunuoiiing parly tu Leipsic, which, being cut uH", must surrender. The same accounts inform us, tbat there were sharp affairs daily from the 26th nit. lu the 1st, alun; the Saal— lhat General Kleist forced the passage at Wii'en, eiul - advanced to Halle— lhat on the 27, li and Chili, tin French endeavoured lo dispossess him of it, but failed— lhal on t he HI, General Blucher advanced from Gritniua, al tacked the Frerith right wing, and drove it back thtee leagues— that Ike battle was fought between Lumen audWeisseufels, and thai, I here were great rejoicings at Leipsic, on account of the victory. They confess that General Rleist was afterwards driven out uf Halle, hut insist that un leead, General Bulow, having reinforrtd General Kleist, suc- ceeded in again establishing the Prussians in 11. Upon the whole the intelligence is not at all distieartenr ing. We have now a proof uf the skill and courage wilh which the Prussians fight, and ofthe liearlinessatid energy * ilh which they have entered into the war. We had tie- fore complete evidence ofthe spirit by which the Russians aie actuated, and the united efforts of two such Powers leave us without any appreiicnsious of the final issue of the great struggle. They write frnm Hamburgh under date ofthe 8th inst. in Ihe highest spirits, and the Hamburghers express them- selves confidently, that Ihey were in sufficient strength to defend iho City against at least 80,000 ofthe eneny Seven thousand of the Hanscatic Legion bad joined the allies, and there were still left fur Ihc protection of Hamburgh 7,000 volunteers already trained to anus, besides evely citi- zen capacle uf hearing arms, had become a soldier Tl e streets ami niaiket places were completely filled with young meu drilling for the field) sucb a thirst fur military glory was never before witnessed. It was believed lhat ihc French after the battle were moving in a direction south- ward, which was rather to be considered as a retrograde, than a forward movement. Advices have reached us from Heligoland up to the last moment uf the ssiting of ihe Packet, we subjoin nnextract ot a letter from thence of Ihe 12th, aud shall lie glad to find the intelligence it contains hereafter confirmed; at present we consider the account lu be exaggerated.—(( Our yester- day's Packet is already under sail this moment, but I cannot refuse myself the pleasure of sending the present after htr by a boat to inform yun, that this moment news fiom the.

The letters from Heligoland confirm for mar accounts respecting Cukliaven. A French force of about 1200 men appeared before that pi ace oil the stli inst. aud Major Kentzinger, deeming resistance unavailing, embarked the garrison. The French appear also to have made an attempt upon Hamburgh, but iu this they were unsuccessful. Their occupation of Cuxhaven is an unpleasant ciicumstance, us it gave 11 easy communication with the people of llreintn and Hanovei. Lord Calhcart always remains at the Empero Alexander's head- quarters; and was present, it is reported, at the batile of l. iitzen. Several letters have been received from the French coast, w hich all concur in representing the engagement al Lutzen as a drawn battle ; aDd th.- y add, that it has produced n. o effect whatever upon the price ol colonial commodities, which would of course have risen, had any apprehension of the re- establishmeut of tiie Continental system been entertained. Letters was received yesterday from the Duke of Cumberland, announcing the safe arrival of his Royal Highness on the Continent. He was preparing to set off' for Berlin. The death of General KutusofT, Prince ufSmcleusku, is officially confirmed by the arrival of Hie Heligoland Mail — He expired at Buntzlau, of a nervous fever, in the " Ctb yeitr of his age, 011 the 29th ult. A few hours previous to his death, the galluut veteran recommended Wittgenstein iv his suc- cessor. He was attended in his last moments by the cele- brated German Physician, Hufelaud.

The intelligence may be correct. The last accounts frum America prepared us for immediate attack, but no such information has reached Guvernmcnt. acknowledged the snp- em » cy of the Pope; because the Pope could annul all hfs obligations. Suppose the Crown w as tu have a Veto on the Bishops, that would avail nothing, becuuve, so far from the Crov. n having any authority 011 that account-, the Catholics would turn it to an instrument for promoting their ow n views. And what would Gentlemen concessions tliey circumstances lie must oppose Ihe Bill, and should move, ns an amendment, to out it of for three months. Mr. C. GRANT tjid not see any thing su amiable in the present system, that should induct: une to wish it lo be made a part ufthe Constitution. On the contrary, it was a system that divided ami distracted the people; lhat gave rise 10 every kind of envy, animosity, and had disposition. Tlie exclusion uf Cathulics from Parliament was at once a vioLiliuu of justice and of the Constitution. It was said, lhat iu return for all llie ber. ifil Ireland conferred 011 us, we had given them onr Constitution. It was a mockery to say we bud done su, when that Constitution was coupled with the most galling restrictions, disabilities, and insults! Had Ireland 1101 formed a part of the British dominions, wc should not now have sucb an uriiaiuent as Wellington to lead our armies lo victory ; we should nut have that voice uf eloquence and patriotism ( alluding to Mr Gvatlnn.) which now added so greatly tu the character of that House, which had first waked the energies of Ireland, and which called , forth the present important discussion As tu the assertion of the learned civilian, that Cathi I < " ere not bound by 1 oaths— the fact was, that their oatl s . v- re now taken in all postscript LONDON, Monday Night, May 17, ' 8 3. This moment arrived Government dispatches from Lord Wellington.— A mail from Lisbon is arrived al Falmouth, and will be up to morrow.— In Lie mean i wltil? we are enabled lo communicate lite substauce of his Lordship's Dispatch it is dated 4th May. His Lordship slates that the enemy had made 110 movement of importance, and his troops remained in nearly the same positions as mentioned in a former Dispatch. The latest accounts received by Government are to the 9th from Lisbon. O'Donnel with his army of reserve was about lo proceed lo Estremadura. The old works al Cuitlad 11 odtigo veie stregthening, and new ones raising. The place is stronger than ever. The French were s'ill collecting their troops at Valladolid. Their force between that towh and Salamanca was estimated at 30,000 men. Gen. Kill has advanced a I.; tie. O'Donnell was lo cross at AlunreZ. The Marquis of Wellington was daily expected to move. A Heligoland Mail arrived yesterday, with accounts from thence to the lltti, and from Hamburgh to the 8th instant. As migLt be expected, they bring us some particulars respecting the baltle of Lutzrn ; and, as was also fully expected, that battle appears to have been a victory on the part of the Allies. It is true that the Allies abandoned the field of battle afler the conflict, but they were not driven from it. On the contiary, they fired a feu de jois on the ground, in token of victory, before they qnitted the field. For this move- ment there might be many prudential reasons ; indeed, as hath more than once been stated, it was not the intention of the Allies lo make their chief staud on Ibis side of the Elbe. The accounts received are nut official; but they fully warrant ttiecouclusiun— lhat Napoleon « . sick of tiie pros- pect before him. 111 the Bulletins uf last year, he boasted uf ll. e capture of cannon and colours: 011 the present occasion thi « semblance uf triumph does not appear in his report of Ihe baltle— a demonstrative proof thai there was nothing like confusion or disaster in the ranks of his enemies.

Sin, On looking over Ihe last Journal, I perceived a short letter signed JOHN MU. NSLOW, respecting a wager made between him aud myself, in which lie states, amongst other things, " lhat neither time nor place had heen fixed for its decision; that a plonghhoy may smile at the alisuidity of t tie statement ot' t: y having sown eight measures of barley in fifteen minuti Ac , Vc."— Now with regard to such fc'r'oueous statement, it must have been a mistake of the Printers'. That 1 sowed the quantity in fifty- one minutes was mentioned to them, and such really was the fact-, w hich lean be substantiated by several respectable persuus, who are perhaps full as great admirers of truth as Mr. Munslow. — If neither lime nor place were appointed for deciding the wager, huw came Mr. Mttuslbw to send to Mr. Downes, of rernbill, to say he could not attend?— The truth is that both time and place were tobe fixed by me, and lie had due notice of it.— I have merely tioubled YOU with this, to prevent any further mistatemcnis goiug abroad— more than was necessary has already been said on the subject. 1 am, Sir, Buildings, Your obedient Servant, Ulay li, 1813. THOMAS EDMUNDS. Character of the People of Pertia.— The Persians are a remarkably handsome race of men : brave, hospitable, palient in adversity, affable to strang4rs, and highly polished iD their manners. They are gentle and insinuating in their address, and, as companions, agree- able and entertaining ; but, in return, ihey are totally devoid of many estimable qualities, and profoundly versed in all arts of deceit aud hypocrisy. They are haughty to their inferiors, obsequious to their superiors, ! cruel, vindictive, treacherous, and avaricious, without faith, friendship, gratitude, or honour. It has, however, been justly remarked, that imperfections will he univer- sally found to sully the human character, in a country where injustice is proverbial, and where confidence and integrity too often lead to ruin. Frugal in his diet, robust in his constitution, capable of enduring astonish- ing fatigue, and inured, from his infancy, lo Ihe extremes of heat and cold, to hunger and thirst, nature seems lo have formed the Persian for a soldier. But as, accord- ing to the ancient customs ol this people, it is deemed degrading to a person, who has money sufficient to purchase a horse, to serve on foot, tlie infantry of Persia has been, from Ibe earliest ages, contemptible, whilst her numerous bodies of irregular cavalry have, more than once, carried terror and defeat amidst the disciplined legions of Home. file dress of the Persians appears lo a stranger to be, in some degree, effeminate ; although perhaps, iu reality, il is not so much so as that of any otber Eastern nalion. It consists ot a long robe, reaching nearly to the feet, and a high cap, wlii- h when covered with a shavyl, has some resemblance to Ihe ancient tiara. A sash is bound round the waist: in this a small dagger is stuck; and no person ever conceives himself dressed without his sword. Tbe custom of shaving, practised in former times by the natives of the Past, and looked upon by Europeans as an act of effeminacy, is now completely reversed. The modem European considers a long beard as tbe emblem of barbarism, but the Persian regards it a » a inaik cf beauty and wisdom. To talk disrespectfully of his beard, is the greatest insult that can be offered to n native of this country; and an attempt to touch it, would probably be followed hy the instant death of the offender. Midnight Terrors.— Having put up my horse al the best Inu in Cupar of Fife, 1 found there a gentleman scarcely recovered from a fright he had got the night before. A person it seems was carrying, from the cast, coast of Fife, a hundred rabbiis, to occupy a warren in the West Islands. The person who had the care of the animals, liired a room for them for the night; putting them all into it, and giving them greens and food, he shut the door ; and having refreshed himself went to led. The Gentleman, whom I saw , being just arrived, and a slrange'r, asked for a supper and a room, and went to bed; which happened to be tbe room con- tiguous to the rabbits, but knew nothing of their being there.— About the middle of Ibe night, and in the inidst of his sleep, the door between his room and the rabbits not being locked, a gale of wind arising, the door suddenly opened and the whole of the rabbits, rushing from their own room ran into the gentleman's, some running over bis face, hands, and other parts of his body, both above and below the bed, arid many of them seeking for shelter beneath the blankets. ' Tbe gentleman, awaking suddenly, was much alarmed, and roared for help, but none appeared. The keeper was asleep, as well as every one else in tfceiiouse. Thinking himself surrounded by a thousand devils, which he fouitd before, behind, and round about him, he at length found the door, and ran down stairs naked, iu the dark. The rabbits, as much afraid as the gentleman, following bim, were down stairs before him ; and it was nel many minutes till the whoie house was in an uproar. When the candle was lighted, nothing appear- ed The rabits had dispersed, and hid themselves in different parts of the house. Hungary waters, spirits, & c. were brought to recover the gentleman ; and it was not till the rabbit man appeared, aud Found bis rabbits gone, tbat he could comprehend what had happened lo him.— flail's travels in Scotland. Present Value of English Hishojtricks.— The fol- dddrest to the Princess of fVales,— The following i are the speeches at tbe Gui ill hall, on the 11th instant, which were briefly noticed in our last. On the motion of Mr. Clement, Mr. Bage took the chair, aud ad- dressed the meeting as follows .— Gentlemen,— The steps that have been taken and which have led, very unexpectedly, to my addressing you this day; the observations'that it will be necessary to make on Ihe COUNTER REQUISITION, by which the MAYOR was desired not to call a Public Meeting lor the purpose of Addressing her Roval Highness the Princess of Wales; the conduct of the Mayor on this occasion, together with a statement of such facts as, in my opinion, make* it decisively our duly to present such Address— all these topics will oblige me to trespass at considerable length on your time and attention ; aud I hope for your patient indulgence accordingly. Gentlemen— A short tiihe ago, a number of Gentlemen being assembled together on another occasion, prompted by the best feelings, proposed that a Requisition should be pre- ented to the Right Woishipful the Mayor, requesting him to call a Meeting to take into consideration the propriety of Addressing the Princess of Wales, on her happy escape from the late insidious attempt to destroy her life and character. Ac- cordingly a Requisition was immediately drawn up, and sigr. rd bv the Gentlemen then present, and by others, to the number of A3 in all, and afterwards piesented to Ihe Mayor. Two days alterwaids he returned it to Mr. Hazledine, in- forming that gentleman at the same time, that he had advised with some of his ftiends, ivho concurred ivith him in thinking such Meeting would br improper, aud therefore he should not comply with tbe request of tbe Requisitionists — After this refusal, a Counter Requisition was set on foot, and signed bv 12 Gentlemen, Burgesses, and Inhabitants, request- ing the Mayor would not call the desired Meeting . a measure the more remaikable, as he had already anticipated theii requests, and signified his refusal. Gentlemen, — 1 will nat occupy your time in reading the Requisition, and tbe Mayor's denial ; but Ihe Counter Requisition I shall by and by have occasion to read, iu ruder to draw your particular attention to it. The Mayor's determination succeeded in defeating one of the objects tlie Requisitionists bad in view— that of ascfitaining the real sense ofthe Inhabitants : For ynu will observe, that they did not presume to request a Meeting to vote au Addiess— that was not their expression ; but to " consider oftlie propriety" of so doing— of present- ing to her Roval Highness, by the Chief Magistrate of the Town, the respectful homage of their congratulations. One only alternative now remained to the Gentlemen who signed the Requisition, and Ihis, on deliberation, tliey chose to adopt. They lesolved to request the attendance, this day, of all those who approved the object of it; and it gives me pleasure, and I am sure it gives them all pleasure, to see so full and respectable an attendance. Gentlemen,— When the Requisition was handed to me for signature, I little dreamt that it would fall to my lot to occu- py this seat, and to bring forwaid ihe business of the day :— I hoped to have seen this place occupied by our Chief Ma- gistiate, surrounded by the very Gentlemen whose names appear to tne Counter Requisition, by all parties and all de- scriptions of persons. 1 thought that if Ihe person of a Princess of the House of Brunswick— the mother of our future Sovereign — was attacked ; that if the hand lhat held tbe dagger was arrested at the instant when it was about to strike the fatal | blow ; I did, I say, imagine tbat « uch an attempt, and such | an escape, would have interested the feelings of every human ! mind, from the Islands of Jersey and Guernsey to John o'Groat's house— except only of the Conspirators themselves, or the tools of party, I did expect that zeal would have been displayed equal at least to that which was manifested on the more successful attempt against the life of Mr. Perceval— Gentlemen,— I am free to confess, that this was not ( tie only mistake I fell into. When I first beard of the opposition, I persuaded myself it could nbt be owing to auy other cause than the remaining animosity of a contested Election; as the turbulence of the waves continues after the storm fras sub. sided. From this second error I vvas happily relieved by ihe Counter Requisitionists themselves, who have candidly and publicly stated the reasons by which they have been actuated: and as those reasons claim your particuiai attention, and give occasion to some Resolutions which 1 shall have the honoui to promise to you, I will now read their Requisition.—[ The Counter Requisition vvas read : it appeared in our Journal of the jib instant.]— Here, then, Gentlemen, the grounds of their opposition are explained. They acknowledge, in language somewhat cold, I must confess, considering Ihe occasion, that the calumnies affecting lier Royal Highness the Princess of Wales are exposed and leluted; and they are exposed and refuted. But they deprecale discussion on so delicate * subject, because discussion might " increase the irri tation and widen the breach which all Good Men aud REAL PATRIOTS wish to see repaired." Aud lest their meaning should be mistaken, care has been taken in tbe Salop an Journal, lo plint tbe words Real Patriots in CAPITAL LETTERS. We, then, Gentlemen, who differ from them in opinion, who think the discussion on tills delicate subject can have no snch triidency, are pre- judged aud condemned, 1 have the authority of these Seventy- two Gentlemen for assur- n^ jou, lhat you are all BAD MEN, ( it Ir. uqh), tbat you are not KKAI. PATRIOTS, fa laugh), and theretom you must be dis. loyal subjects. Nay, Gentlemen, what is still worse, I have their authority for assuring you, that the Lord Mayor of Lon- don, the Aldermen, Common Council, and Livery, are not only bad and disluyal, but very bad and very disloyal! for they are not only almost unanimous, but very enthusiastic. — This sweeping accusation and condemiiatiun reach far and wide.

It is qniie alarming to think of such a prodigious mass of depravity and disaffection ! | ( loud laughing.)

Pound then quitted the company of tbe other boys, under pretence of acquainting his father ofttie reason for his offence, but, instead of doing so, he concealed himself round thecomer ofthe square, occasionally observing the movements of the boys— In a short time he returned to the company of the boys, with a clasp knife, opened, in bis hand, and going up to Smith, he direelly accused him of having been tbe one who had beaten his hat off, but which Smith denied. Pou . d repeated the accusation. Smith ( uot observing Pound bad a knife in his hand) struck him with a small cane, not larger round llian a quill; upon which Pound closed upon him, and, putting his arm round Smith's head, stabbed him near the hip bone w ith the knife, of which wound he died the next day. The boys in company attempted to disarm Pound, but lie defied their efforts, threatening tliem with similar treatment. The Jury returned a verdict of IVilfut Murder.— Smith was 15 years of age. Several accidents happened iu Noltingham lately to young people, from the chairs of tire merrygorounds : one girl had her arm twisted and broken ; another bad her skull dreadfully fractured, and a third received so severe a contusion, that she was taken away senseless. The Mayor immediately ordered the machiues to be removed. As two Irish soldiers were passiug through Chippen- ham, one of them observing the Borough Arms ( which have somewhat the appearance of a Hatchment) over the town hall door, accosted bis comrade with—" Ar. rah, Pat, look up, what is that sigu ?"•—" Botheration," cries Pal, " tis no sign at all at all, ' tis only a sigu that somebody's dead that lives there." ana Widen the breach'* between the Prince Regent and his wife. Now, what is the object of our Addresses '— The basest calumnies were propagated against het Royal High- ness; they were detected and exposed. Aconspiiacy was formed against her life ; the axe * as ratted, but ttie blow vvas averted. Her sufferings amounted 10 hpture. We leel as men always feel w hen woman is oppressed : we wish to afford her all ihe allev iation iu onr |> ower— to shew her every mark of respect, esteem, and attachment— to sympathize aud con- dole with her for tbe miseries she has endured— to congratu- late her itiat her danger is over, and that tranquillity, it' not happiness, has at length lakcu possession ot'thai bosom which has so long been the sport of malice, aud the abode of wretchedness.— These are the nbjects of our proposed Address. This is the " very head and fioot of our offending " Why should this displease the Prince Regent? For so il must, before il can '' increase the irritation and widen the breach," so anxiously depiecuted by onr 7- 2 adviser;,. Are we then gravely told by Gentlemen of character and information, that the acknowledged innocence of his wife, of his falhei's niece, ofhis child's mother, woutd giievously offend and irritate his- Royal bosom ! That to have established her infamy would have been more grateful to him I— You see, Gentlemen, we are not the only persons accused and condemned by this sell- created tribunal of 7' 2 1 They take a wider range, and a higher flight 1 They accuse the Prince Regent, by inference direct and irresisi ible, of being not only a trad man, but the most de- praved and ihe most abandoned ot all men ! On so vviltl a pieSuuipiiou as Ibis, they recommend it to us not to open our tips in favour of innocence, lest it should give pain lo the vicious; that ttie untied voice of the Biitish people should not tie suffered lo leach the royal ear, lest it should excite ir- ritation ! Truly, Gentlemen, this is a doctrine well enough suited to Turkey 01 Morocco, but very ill adapted to tbe feet- lugs ofa fiee born btilou ! Stating, as ihese Gtntleuien do, indirectly but uniquiVocatly, their opinion* of the Piiuce, and their wish not to wound his feelings, they proceed to tell us we shall " widen the bleach." What! when hatred is sup- posed to be so deadly that itie destiuction of its object would have been a gratification, can any man imagine that irritation can be iucrcuseu, or thai couciliai'on is pu.- sible 1— What! can it be believed, that if the manifestation of the public es- teem and confidence, in her Royal Hi. clmeWs favour has no power lo soften the heart ul the Prince, 1 v .' delate and neglect will have that eifeci i 1 am suie you iio. j, one auJ all agree with me that this is morally impossible. Such, Gentlemen, aie ihe absurdities which men are driven to, who wander nut ot toe direct path iu Older to indulge themselves in wanton abuse and indiscriminate censuie — Compelled as i am, in self- defence, and 111 defence of us nil, to make these severe remarks 011 tbe bad teasoning and the serious charge so solemnly preferied against us in the Counter Requisition, my personal respect and goud opiuion of most of the Gentlemen, whose names uie subscribed to it, inclines me to believe tbat they have signed it hastily, without much uttenliuu to its contents; and that tbey have been limned uud inrsUd into thai which iheir sober judgment, au 1 belter feelings wilt condemn.— But, (, t liLitn. e'- ii, having shewn that this dread tribunal of 72 have reasoned ill, and piououuCtd sentence against us, without evidence; and tis,;' a'; proved, I hepe to your satistaciiuo, tint you are neither bad men nor preteuted patriots, but good men and true ; it remains only to convince you, that the Address proposed has a tendency the very reverse of that vvbich our adversaries attribute to it. Gentlemen,— we have no evidence of that extreme depravity so broadly hinted at. That there is, and probably always has been, a waul of that affection which ought to subsist between man and wife, we know, and lament, from notoiious facts, and fiom unauthentic document under the Prince's own hand, so long ago as 17 yeais. But'though in a state of separation, I see no proof that be would be insensible to the disgrace of his family, or to the infamy of the Mother of his only child. When decla- rations such as those of Lady Douglas's reached his ears, he felt, as every man must feel under similar circumstances, a strong desire to ascertain the truth. He had no immediate meons of knowing that her declaration was the offspring of the diabolical spirit of revenge : But when, after the severest scrutiny, ber innocence became manifest, do you think 11 possible, that as his near relation, as Ihe mother of bis child, if not as his wile, that he would not paitakeof llie general satisfaction ? I do very seriously lament lhat tlieie should be two opinions ou this subject. If you suppose him to possess the common feelings of common men, you must imagine that Htr Royal Highness's restoration to the countenance and prutection of His Majesty, which took place li years ago, aud tbe growing esteem iu which she is held by the people, must be giateful to his feelings and must tend lo excite some pity for her unmerited sufferings, some affection for her person. The more she is esteemed and respected by tho world, the moie she will be esteemed and respected by him ; and this is surely the first step towards allaying irritation, and ol introducing more tender emotions. But, Gentlemen, there is another important view of ttie subject. If we suffer the grossest and iimst malignant perjuries to go uncensured ; if we fail to reward, by every token of our approbation in our power to bestow, the patience, the submission, the forbear- ance of years, under calumnies and accusations the most vile, detestable and dangerous; if, I say, we witness vice and profligacy without censure, and virtue without applause, we weaken the moral sense, confound good and evil, right and wrong, and become the most insidious foes, the most certain aud dangerous enemies to the moral's, aud theiefore to the happiness, of our couutry. Let us then do our duty. Let us present a loyal and affectionate Address to her Royal High- ness , and I dare promise, that your consciences will not, ou that account, accuse yuu either of being bad men or disloyal subjects. Gentlemen, 1 will add one wold on the conduct of the Mayor, 111 refusing to call aMeetiug. It is admitted that he has a legal right to exercise his discretion, by complying, or refusing to comply, with the qesire expressed by the Requisition. But we have a right to consider, whether he has exercised a sound discretion. It is easy to shew that in the present case he has not exercised a sound discretion, which I shall do without moaning to call in question the goodness of his intention. He might mean well, but act ill. The motive urged against a Meeting, was, that discussion ought to tie avoided : But has it beeu in the power of tbe Mayor to prevent discussiou ? He well knew it vvas not; and there- toe no beneficial purpose was answered, on tbe principles laid down by bis advisers, by his tefusal. But if he had called a Meeting he would have retained— what now he has not— the chance of having ihe proposed Address rejected. The arguments of his 7' 2 friends might have appeared more weighty than any we could oppose to them; and consequeulty, their own seu. se of propriety, Iheir owu patriotic tcelings might have prevailed ; but they have chosen most manfully lu abandon tlicir own cause, ho much for his conduct 011 the principles laid dowu by the 72. Independently of those principles, I confess I cannot understand, in the case of Opposing Requisitions, by what sound discretion tie can uudeitake 10 determine which is right and which is wrong. The whole population aud all the wisdom of the place was required to discuss the subject; and then the majority of votes, not the ipse dixit of the Mayor, is the rational, and the only rational, mode uf decision. Gentlemen— the defence I have ihuught it necessary to make against what I tiust all GOOD MEN will deem an unfounded slander, has extended to so great a length, that t feel 1 have trespassed loo long on your nine and patience. It was my intention to bave laid before you a connected narrative of the proceedings against her Royal Highness; but us the documents are extremely volu- minous, I must limit myself to a very slight outliue.— [ Here Mr. B. recaptlulat, a ihe transactions respecting her Royal Highness, since her arrival in this country, and quoted the verdict of acquittal, pronounced by the Noble » lies who inquired into her conduct, and who advised the King to receive her inlo his Majesty's court aud favour.] Accordingly, in a short lime afterwards, lier Royal High- ness was teecived at Court, and apaituients 111 Kensington Palace weie allotted to.' hcr, which she still retains. Thus ended this harassing aud cruel persecution, which continued about 11 months, fiom May 1806, to April 1807. From the spring of 1S07 10 the present time, not a breath of slander has disturbed her ropose; and she might have enjoyed that uninterrupted tranquillity, which 17 years ago his Royal Highness expressed his wish might be her lotto the end of life, but that at length a new and poignant assault was offered her, which threatened to revive the aspersions on ber character, which uu interval of almost six years had nearly consigned to oblivion. Her intercourse with her Daughter was now subjected to fresh restrictions. She remonstrated in the most pathetie manner; her remon- strances were disregarded, and, I am sorry to add, were treated with indignity. It was now that her spirit revolted, aud rose superior to oppression. Emboldened by conscious innocence, she made bur appeal to the people by two Letters, the one to the Lud Chan ellor, the other to the Speaker of the House ot Coinmuns. The Lord Chancellor ( one of her Royal Highness's former defenders) [ rut the letter in his pocket; the latter, tu his immortal honour, read it to the House : the consequence of whicii has beeu, a full exposure to Ihe whole world, ofthe base arts that have beeu practised against her, and a new and unresetved acquittal from every charge. Thus, Gentlemen, when she felt that her cha- racter was again to be the sport of malice ; when the small remains lhat had been left ber of a mother's comfort was about to be abridged, she appealed to Us, the People ; she placed herself under Our protection. Shall we, when a helpless, Irieudless, forlorn, and deserted Female implores our protection, turn our recreant backs, and he so dastardly, so devoid of every generous aud manly feeling, as not to arm in her defence;— When iu the bitterness of sorrow she applies to us for comfort, shall we refuse it ?— When, having a Husband, she is devoted to the dreariness of widowhood; when, having a Daughter, She is deprived of a mother's com foi t; when, being our future Queen, and the mother of our luture Sovereign, she is a degraded outcast from ber family, shalt we nut come forward to alleviate her sufferings ? — Shall we not afford her every consolation in oui power to bestow ? Gentlemen, I am confident there is but one feeling pervades this Hall; 1 have only to move the Resolutions and Addtess. After the Resolutions and Address had been read, Mr. WICKSTISED rose, and said : Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen— I rise to second the Address, which has just been read, with the greatest pleasure. For such an animating sight as this assembly— so numerous and so respectable— and voluntarily meeting upon such an occasion, it is impossible to behold, without stronger emotions than I can well describe. Gentlemen— It is natural for man to feel indignant when he sees malice and revenge plotting the destruction of the virtuous aud uususjjcctiiig— Nor is it less natural for him tobe conscious of the puiest satisfaction whenever innocence successiully resists the attacks of those fiends, and lays open to the iighl of day tlieit dark designs and subtile machinations. In coming forwaid, then, upon tbe present occasion you obey some of the best impulses of* our nature ; and reason gives her sanction to the dictates ot the heart. For what objects arc there, I would ask, mote worthy the concern of " goo. l vieu and real patriots," than lo support the weak, to proUct tiie innocent, to defend ttie injured, to resist oppression, to confound vice, to shame hypocrisy, aad perfect Ihe triumph of virtue ? — f Applause. J Is there a man living, who has beheld the iudignities aud sufleriiigs inflicted upon her RoyII1 Highness the Princess of Wales, who has seen her surrounded by domestic spies, prying into every chamber anJ corner of her habitations, deserted by her husband, abandoned by her friends, banished fioui the piesence bt'. iv-. i ^ oveteijrii aud Father, blasted in eputatiou, ami charged with tile foul crime ot adultery and treason! who has seen bee loo, iu this deplorable condition, thwarted and piessed dowu by a Cr. Mbiuation of talent, zual, power, wealth, malice, treachery, and falsehood— and yet, notwithstanding suen a tremendous conspiracy, enough to break down the strongest mind, and dismay the stoutest heart, who has finally t; een this same deserted, injured Princess, baffle the deep- laid plans of her enemies, and expose ber perjured traducers to scorn, detestation and infamy, by the simple force of Inuocetnce andVntue alone— 1 ask, lives there a man, possessing the common f< elings of his kind, who has' witnessed snch a icene as I have described, and yet who does not feel a conscious joy dilate his heait on the triumphant issue of so unequal, so desperate a conflict; aud if his heart do really expand with joy— iu this name of Virtue, Truth and Honour, how can ne forbear ty give it utterance i I did not think therexould be cr. e such man : hut here behold a list of Seventy- two snch men. Aud, Omarvellous per- versity 1 miti who take credit tti themselves for doing a violence to their nature, in stifling the emotions which they confess thay feel: Yet this does not content them. Not sati- fied with displaying their own peculiar goodness aad patriotism, they date to insinuate that those who are not as cold, as lifeless, as unnatural as themselves, can neither he good men nor real patriots. But this is treating the matter, perhaps, with too much seriousness, It i « a perfect jok-, and quite ridiculous to see any 72 men in Shrewsbury, however respectable, as individuals, may be their rank aud character, presuming 10 decide forthe whole Town upon any question.— They venture to pi* di « t that the probable result of the meeting, would not lie desirable. And they in'imate in very significant terms, tbat it would tint be agreeable to the Prince Regent that the people should express their exultation; al the failure of the plot against his illustrious Consort. What a specimen of their loyalty '. to point the dait, to aim the blow, to turn it from iis proper objects, and direct it to him whom they would defend!— Oh exquisite Reconcilers! Oh admirable Repairers of Breaches! — ( A Laugh.) Permit me. Gentlemen, to avail myself of the present op- portunity to notice some of the objections which are commonly made to meetings of llie people ill general, lt is sometimes asked, in a lofty tone, Wnat business have such people with matters of this sort ? What right have then to meddle in Slate Affairs ? What can thry know about them 1 They had better leave the management of these concerns to wiser heads, and mind their shops and warehouses ! Such, Sirs, Iras ever been the language uf those who would repress the popular spirit.— But, suppose we do employ our leisure hours in tlie puisuits here censured, it would be difficult for these objectors, Itbink, to shew, that we are less rationally or profitably employed than those whose spare hours are devoted to hunting, fishing, shooting, caril- playing, or even the gentlemanly occupation of coach- driving. But the true answer to these inquiries is— that it is good for the people to be alive to all affairs affecting tbe common weal Every page of the History of England demonstrates this truth. For had uot our ancestors, men of the same rank and standing in Society as we are, busied themselves in public matters, all power would long ago have been lodged in the hands of a few great men ; aud instead of having ihe right we now enjoy, of meeting together and deli vering our opinions upon eveiy thing which concerns the state, we might bave stood rebuked by our S" venli/- lwo Directors of Shrewsbury, and not have dared upon ihe proceedings of this day. And let me add, that the GREAT and the HUSH are not less interested in the pre.- ei vaiiou of popular rights than the humhbr citizens of the State. How could so small a territory ns the United Kingdom have made the glorious stand it has done, against the encroachments of our ambitious and danger- ous enemy, if the inhabitants at large bad taken no concern in the affairs Government ? No other country affords so large a revenue, in proportion to itssiz i— no other couutry sends forth such brave sailors and undaunted soldiers— no other country lias made such astonishing voluntary sacrifices, of every kind, in tbe great cause of Europe's deliverance, as this little King- dom : And the reason is, thai THE PEO? LK have understood and felt ihe cause to be their own :— no arbitrary government could ever hava exacted such an annual tribute as 70 millions sterling, from a population of Iti millions of souls j but every man iu this couutry being a politician, and having a right ta speak and act as he pleases, so that he injure not another, and do not violate t'ne laws of the land by libelling constituted authorities, every man I say, derives a degree ol consequence from being a member ot' a free state, and is inspired witb an unconquerable ardour to defend it. Let not the people then be treated with contempt; we know our rights; and knowing will maintain them. To the middling ranks of life seem to belong, in a peculiar manner, the conservation of some of ttie choicest blessings of existence. If there be any value iu li- berty, if there be any utility in morals, if there be any tiling becoming in conduct, if there be auy thing sacred and dear to our hearts and religion— it is our bounden duty to come forward upon all occasions, where an injury has been doneordesigned to any of these sacred objects of our regard and affection. When the People cease to take au interest in these most important of all concerns, farewell fo every thing valuable in life 1 In vain will the Ministers of Religion pronounce from the Altar and the Pulpit the commandments of God, and say, " 2boa shalt not commit Adultery," if the People listeu witn indifference — nay, if they do not feel aud express their sorrow, contempt and indignation, when they hear it responded from the Bench, that Adultery is but a misfortune. When Car. ar invaded this island, he found the greater part of its inhabitants in the condition of slaves ; and their entire ignorance of tbe common arts of life, their simple state of barbarism, afforded frequeut subjects of mirth to their luxuri- ous and accomplished masters at Rome. The contrast of that state of things with the high degree of liberty and civilization to which Ibis country has since attained, produced the follow, ing remarks from the able pen of the late Dr. Couyers . Mid- dleton :* " From the railleries of ibe Romans, says he, on the bar- barity aud misery of our island, one cannot help reflecting 011 the surprising fate and revolutions ut kingdoms : how Rome, once the Mistress of tbe World, the seat of aits, empire, and glory, now lies muk in sloth, ignorance, and poverty, enslaved to the most contemptible of lytants— Superstition and Reli- gious Imposture : while tliis lernote country, aucieutly the jest and contempt of the polite Romans, is become the happy seal of liberty, plenty, and letters, flourishing in all the arts and refinements of civil life ; yd running perhaps the same c< rurse which Rome itself hail tun before it — from virtuous industry to wealth, from wealth to luxury, from luxuiy to an iru- patif nee of discipline and corruption of morals, till by a total degeneracy and loss of viiliia, being groivu ripe for destruction, it falls a prey at last to some hardy oppressor; and, with the loss of liberty, losing eveiy thing else that is valuable, sinks gradually again iuto its original barbansm." Gentlemen— If aught 011 earth can avert or protract this sad catastrophe— depend upon it, it is the spirited but tempe- ra I e, the bold and daring, but virtuous and enlightened efforts of the People lo resist, with steadiness, the encroachments of power; and to repress with firmness the tumultuous risings of liceiitiou- ncss. The Rev. Mr. PALMER then addressed the Chairman: Sir,— Notwithstanding it has been asserted that this meeting " cannot be productive uf any desirable results," be assured the Chair you fill this day has been seldom, if' ever, occupied on a more equitable aud hououiablc occasion. Nor is it pro- sumption 10 say ttiat good men" and " real patriot," will be found supporters of the causa you so laudubly espouse. — Some of our worthy townsmen have expressed groundless fears that meetings like this may " excite irritation and widen a breach already made;" but this cannot be. if there is a breach, who made it, lint ttie Demons of Envy by their base insinuations ! May their venom, finding nothing else lo feed upon, prey 011 their owu vitals, until exhausted and consigned to oblivion; while the fullest proofs of the innocence of the Princess and the approbation of the nation effectually heals that bleach which ought never to have brtvu made. Who,— possessed of ttie feelings of a brother, a parent, a husband, a prince, a peasant, a Briton, or a man— but would brave all danger to rescue a virtuous and worthy woman from envy, slander, and death ? The situation of her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales has tieen perilous 111 the extreme, affecting her peace, honour, aud tile. Her sufferings must have been inconceivably great; her patience admirable; her prudence wonderful. Alter many years affliction her innocence is made manifest. How then can we evince our patriotism more effec- tually, than by commending und defending the viituousaud innocent, reproaching the guilty, aud glorying in tbe triumph of justice ? —[/ Ip/ ifutrse. j— Oi how can we belter prove our loyalty than Oy manifesting a concern for the honour and life of an illustrious Princes* vvno found a father, a friend, a pro- tector, iu our beloved aud venerable Monarch, so long as his reason continued;— one who is an honour to the Royal Family and the nation— the affectionate Mother of an amiable Princess — the lawful and virtuous Wife of the Prince Regent. " Fur this cause shall a man leave father aud mother, aud cleav unto his wife, and they twain shall be one flesh." ** What God hath joined together let no man separate." Every heart present must most devoutly wish that the Princess may not only have unlimited intercourse with her Daughter, but also that his Koyal Highness, fully convinced of her innocence, may speedily receive her to his Royal embrace, and fulfil tils marriage covenant, " cleaving close to her only, until deaib doih them part." Surely those who are most nearly allied to lier Royal Highness must no gratified wilh every expression ot public approbation uf her conduct, her innocence, and her triumph.

SIR,— Hy inserting the following remarks 011 the Addresses tu the Princess of Wales, in your next paper, you w ill oblige many of your readers, as well as Your I amble Servant, Shrewsbury, 15 May, 1813. A t , UNTfcR- Re< iUIsITIONIST, Several Addresses to the Princess of Wales have lately been presented from the City of Loudon aud some other places, congratulating her Royal Highness ou what is culled ihe complete triumph of her innocence. On a geneial principle these addresses may, perhaps, be justified, audit* there were strong and sufficient evidence lo implicate, us the addresses wish lu do, several branches oft be Royal Family, and especially the Prince Regent, in the conspiracy which is supposed to have existed against her ttoyal High. ness's life' and honour, we should rejoice to see such addresses emanating from every public body in Ihe kingdom ; because au expression of public opinion is never so loudly called for by justice aud manliness as when innocence needs support, and the wantonness of power calls for the rebuked ofa free people. The same just principle lhat would call for this, woutd also demand that charges so foul ami wicked ought not to be ever insinuated without the best tvideucc; The common relation of one man lo another ou the same level with himself would make Ihis a duty ; but iu addition to this, there is in the case before us superadded 10 thi* obligation the respect oweil lo magistracy and luyaky. Evidence of the charge insinuated in these addresses against Ihe Regent there is no> te, aud Hie addresses can, therefore, be considered only as tire result uf the grossest ignorance or the deepest faction, and will stand, not us inouttiueuls ufthu geuerous feelings of the City Sages, but as records of iheir insolence. Al a very early stage of this unpleasant affair it vvas suggested that the Princess had fallen into llie hand3 of party aud designing men, and every step of ils progress has. only confirmed that conviction, lt was not for the sake of the Princess herself thai she was advised to address herself to the Public. It could nut be for her, fur there vvas nothing in the evidence intended to be laid before the world whicii could prove auy tiling but tbat she was not actually criminal, aud of that she was not suspected. She has, therefore, gained nothing hut those extravagant applauses ol faction which assigns to her the most perfect u recti, ude of con- duct," aftil with the unquestioned evidence of Mrs. Lisle* aud tbv results of two commissions full ill view, most devoutly wishes that lire Princess Churlotte may conform lo the example of her Royal Mother. The object of tba party which has insinuated itseif into her confidence was from the tirst, uot her justification, but their owu potilicaL views. The alteration in the political views ofthe Regent was tbe ground of Iheir malignity, and their constant object bus beeu to lower his character by a " conspiracy'* certainly as base as lhat charged upon the euemies of her Koyal H ighness.— Their cunning has been unhappily au over match tor her prudence, and designing from the beginning to attach a strung suspicion to the conduct of ihe Prince iu the affair of the 11 Investigation," she was induced i: t her very first published letter, to use the term " , ubotnvd traducers," with au emphusis which might prevent auy mistake as lo us application. To support this charge, they next attempted to prove that Earl Moira had acted as u pander to lite wishes of the Prince iu obtaining evidence against his consorl. The reason of Iheir fixing upon him was obvious— be was high in confidence aud friendship nt Carlton House. That detestable attempt failed; but as il is essential to their object' to keep up tbe delusion, ihcy have conUuued to advisst t tie Princess in her answers to the presented addresses to retaiu the use of the original phrase, the potent talisman iu their political conjurations, suborned traducers. Nor liuve their intrigues ended here: the very ladles about I lie person of the Princess have been pressed inlo the houourubie service of traducing the Royal Family, by employing Iheiu to write inflammatory letters iu the public pupeis, staling certain slights aud affronts to have been received by the Princess of Wales from different branches of the Royal Family, all of tbein as it has since been proved either utterly false in fact, or facts egregiously distorted aud misstated. The private communications of oue of these Ladies vvilU the Ediiorofa Loudon paper have beeu published, aud we IhuS learn from the lady's own pen, tbat the object of her state- ments was to "' sting and venom," iu a word, to mislead the public, and traduce llie Royal family ! The Princess of Wales is, therefore, to be considered as ihe heroine of Ihe Burdetts, ihc Hunts, the Broughams, the VVaitlimaus, ike. & c. & c. as a political instrument aud nom as a political instrument only. Every addiess to her must also bs considered as assisting to the object of connecting tbe Prince Regent w ilh those perjured persons who assailed her character. No person, under present circumstances, can consistently promotesucli an address, wtio has not made up his mind to sanction this calumny it is true there is a miserable pretence set up for the purpose of deceiving the public, thai ihe Prince aud Royal Family must be gratified by the acquittal of her Royal Highness ; but this is insolent- ly ironical. It must, indeed, be a high gratification to them to be told that they were the " a u burner*, of perjury,* aud that Ihis is the idea the addiessers wish lo embody 111 their addresses can need 110 proof after what has passed in the meeting of the London Common Council The amend- ment proposed by Mr. Jacks, which only went to preyeut auy imputations upon the Prince from being nisei ted iu the address, was negatived by a great majority, aud that address, therefore, went up professedly for the purpose of congratulating the Princess of Wales on ber escape from the machinations of a conspiracy of w liich the Prince RegeuL vvas the mover. This is its true interpretation, and if mote proof was wanted it might be found iu the language of one of the Livery at a subsequent meeting ( whether a sans calotte MV a gownsman i^ of 110 consequence, us his language was sanctioned by bis not being, t ailed to order) who expressly aud openly charged the "- conspiracy" upon ttie '' Prince Regent and his mother-," and as if to show us without a veil, what the sliil more latent views of the party are inlo whose hands the Princess has surrendered herself, ( great adorers of Princes and Princesses, no doubt!) the same perseliage pro- ceeds to hope for the ttme In come when Baronets would be as despicable as Peg Nicholson's Knights."- " For my pari," says ibis trite Robcspierrean, " 1 never see Bart, at 1 Ire end ofa man's name but I think it stands for bartered." The Princess must have a high gratification in receiving the good wishes ofsucli men iu bebalfof the Priucess Char- lotte. They have much affection for her 110 doubt, su much indeed lhat from a letter of Sir F". lt.' s it appears ihev hope that 111 gratification for their taking up her 11101 tier's cause, she will surrender herself to their political direction, aud take a tessun from llictii on reform in Parliament. Such is the nature unit object of the addresses which in London have been vuteil 10 the Princess of Wales. They were, doubtless, designed alsa for the imitation of the coun- try; and we are happy therefore that their intention has been so clearly slated. Time will show how fur tliey wilt ac- complish the object, and bow many persons have been made the uupes of fhe intrigues of men, who aru rapidly drawing aside the cloak, aud showing themselves to the country. But there is another manoeuvre ofthis party which claims some notice. They affect in all t heir speeches and addresses to represent what Ihey call " the conspiracy against the Princess of Wales," as dark, mysterious, and inexplicable; and their reason for tins is, lhat the public may the moie readily believe that the enemies and perjured accusers ot the Princess were instigated by somebody out of sight, and that the great instigator was the Prince of Wales, Ofthis we repeat there is 110 evidence; but thequestion may lerur " how then is the conspiracy accounted for r" We answer there is uo evidence of even a conspiracy, except il be be- tween Sir J. Douglas aud his wife, for the servants of the Princess do not appear to have been iu correspondence with thein ; and us lo lire darkness and mystery il is all assumed and affected, uud the affair is dark only because the faction wish il to be so, lhat their movements may be carried on. with better effect Let any man of sense read the evidence, and unless he wishes lo meet with mystery aud wunder, we think it will be difficult for him to find it. The Princess of Wales intimates to Sir John Douglas, that an improper fa- miliarity existed between Lady Douglas aud Sir S Smilh.— Sir J and his wife both highly tesent this insinuation, and ill retaliation first utter calumnies against tbe Princess and then swear them. There is nothing mysterious in this; base as Ihe act was, perjury is not an uncommon resource of vitiated and malignant uiiuris; aud here it hail the motive of* reveugc, thun which a stronger canuot pollute the human heart.— : " | . . - mystery ? As Lisle's state- , . . — conduct ofthe Princess was light aud Hirtiiig with her male visitants, the whole is easy of explication. Il is not iu servants to be tender of the character of iheir employers. We believe the Princess to be innocent; but the same evidence winch leads us lo this conclusion does likewise oblige us to believe her indiscrtet-, and from those indiscretions those troubles have j had their rise, which it is now the detestable object of he « j palrty to charge upon the procuring of her husband.
