Jor their raritj or singularity of il - IKS, form, among which ire several fronyNewHolland, not : c. yet noticed by authirs. ' 7THE B!

They are of nearly , tinue every know/ genus, and vary in size from the ostrich v... to the almyt insect humming bird ( of which there are 11ent about 80 distinct species), whMe bulk scarcely equals that of Jit bee, but w! o e ^ adiai. t and resplendent yj : erm, piumagwexceeds, in brilliancy and colour, the most va- <> luablc of our precious stones. This department of the | sual, museum has lately been enriched ( through the libera- W lity of/ the Royal College of Surgeons) by the entire col- lectiijh made by Sir Joseph Banks and Captain Cook, p4 during their vovages of discovery, among which are ' - mar/ y unique and perfectly new subjects. / - Among the numerous and beautifufly preserved \ kP CLASS OF AMPHIBIA Di are al! the known crocodiles, alligators, iguanas, chame- £ t i lions, lizards, tartoises, and serpents. Among the latter • r^ TTr) is a specimen of th^; great serpent of South America, jj, j called the Boa Constrictor, which is perhaps the finest g] ' j""' subject of natural history in Europe. It measures 52 m Y1-, IS feet in length and 23 inches in circumference, and is A . finely preserved, in the act of destroying a deer, which j?, is crushed, and expiring in the enormous fold of its mer- o t real cjiess adversary. Ci , on ln THE FISHES p. ' a'l° are a selection of those of the most extraordinary form, £ irably from every part of the world. Many are of the most j?, e sold rare itj) lljs> found on our own coast, and have the ap- [ n f pearance of being just taken from their native ele- A ion ot men£- f) THE COLLECTION OF INSECTS c [ 7J is extremely splendid and extensive, containing all the i, most remarkable of Africa, India, the Brazils, and other A parts of South America, many of which are of the most \ astonishing metallic brilliancy of colours, diversity of JJ form, and extraordinary size. A ment THE MARINE PRODUCTIONS N nand;. a^ mprise a very valuable assemblage of shells, echini, lejHo asterias, corals, madrepores, gorgonias, and other inha- < ssive bitants of the waters, collected, without regard to _ pence, and appropriately displayed, in the most elegant pe* u- manner. Among the FOSSILS, e or organic Remaina of a former World, j ire those of several species of the mammoth of America, tl >( Bcei an< l » ° me found in this country. They consist of a fo lount. variet7 ° f bones, teeth of carnivorous and other extinct p led to an<^ non- descript animals, which must have been of jr such vast size as to have Deen at least 140 times the bilk of a horse. The single claw of one measures near four feet in length. They have been the surprise of every enlightened admirer of the wonderous productions of nature. This department also contains the head of an enormous crocodile, lately found entire in the cliff near Lyme, in Dorsetshire, and an unique turtle, as well as fishes, crabs, shells, and other marine animals, many of them taken from the interior of the highest and most inland mountains of the continent, as well as our own island, yet are as perfect as when in existence. This Museum also contains a few very select , FOREIGN CURIOSITIES AND WORKS OF ART. Among the former are the most interesting articles brought from the South Seas during the voyages of discovery of Captain Cook. They include the identical ,„ idols, weapons, and other domestic and military imple- lar ments engraved in the history of those voyages, among elroie which is the superb feather, cloak, and helmet, present- ifries e<' by the King of Owyhee to, and worn at an enter- tainment on shore by, our unfortunate circumnavigator, a few days before he fell a sacrifice to the mistaken re- fc ure sentment of the natives. Most of the above were pre- lock. sented by Sir Joseph Banks. Among the works of art, | are some finely executed models in rice paste, and some specimen* of the most exquisite carvings in ivory, by J j Mess. Stephsney and Dretch, of Lausanne, being the g JJ principal objects in the admirable exhibitions of their J ' works in Bond Street, London.

The LORD CHANCEI LO'R stated, that in conse- row, his Majesty's Attorney- General, who had accepted the office of Chief Justice of Chester. Sir S. ROMILLY said, that the appointment which had given rise * o the motion just made, was so objectionable to him, that he considered he should not be doing his duty to the public, if he let it pass altogether unnoticed. From that motion, heunderstood that hisMajesty's Attorney- General had, accepted a high judicial situation, without resigning his office under the Crown.— These offices weft in themselves highly incompa- tible with each other, as the gentleman filling them both was removable at the pleasure of the Crown, whenever his conduct should become obnoxious to it. It was far from his wish to cast any reflec- tion on the present Attorney- General; hehadonly done as others in his situation had done before him ; and no doubt it was to be expected, when high lucrative offices should fall, that he should be a partaker in them. He ( Sir Samuel Ro- milly) also knew, that there was an Attorney General for Chester ; but then he also knew that he wa3 subordinate to his Majesty's Attor- ney- General, the Chief Justice of Chester. He also knew, that Lord Kenyon and Lord Alvan ley, and other men of high character, had held J> oth situations at once ; but if to these were add- led the names of Sir Matthew Hale and Lord Somers, it would not justify a practice so dan- jgerons to the impartial administration of justice ; a practice which, on no occasion should be al- ! lowed to pass in that House as a matter of course. What would the House say, if any of the judges accepted of some paltry office, from which he might be removed at the pleasure of the Crown? But what would they say when the Attorney- General ( he believed the most lucrative office under the Crown), had accepted another situa- tion, the most important next to that of the 12 judges ? These observations he had thought it his duty to make, but it was not his intention, either at that time or any future period, to sub- mit any motion to the House on the subject. The new writ was then ordered to be issued. Mr PONSONBY moved a new writ for the coun- '[ ty of Kildare, in the room of Lord H. Fitzge- | raid, who had accepted the Chiltern Hundreds. FURTHER ADJOURNMENT. Mr VANSITTART moved that the order of ithe day for the House going into a committee J of supply, which stood for to- morrow, should now be discharged, for the purpose of appoint- v ing the 23d of March as the day for going into ' the said committee. This motion was carried nem. con. | Mr VANSITTART then moved, that the order of the day for going into the committee of ways , and means, which also stood for to- morrow, i should be discharged, and the 23d of March . fixed as the day for going into the said commit • tee. 1 This motion was also carried nem. con. Mr TIERNEY said, the right honourable gentle. : man's mode of proceeding was a strange one, ! in moving a farther postponement of these com- " i mittees, without acquainting the House any far- ther adjournment was intended to be proposed. Mr VAKSITTART said, that he was acting in • tfnfJhnitd with the psage of Parliament . in this Sstartce, which had invariably left the! recom- : mendajion of the Ciown to a fartl er adjourn- : ment, as the last thing. He, however, had no : objection, at that stage of the business, to state to the House, th; t he was commanded by his 1 Roy i Highness the Prince Regent, ae; ing in ( ! the nime, and on the behalf of his Majesty, to . I rccommend to the House, to adjourn till Mon- . day the 21st of March ; and he moved, accord- . ; ingly, that that House at its rising, should ad- : joum till Monday tile 21st of March, j Mr WHITEHEAD said, he confessed he was • | not a little surprised that the right honourable 1 gentleman should have taken that step first, Lord A. HAMILTON said, that from the length of the adjournment, he could not see how they could be justified in the eyes of their constituents, without the adoption of some such address- as that proposed by his honourable friend. He should like to know in what particu- arly arduous situation they were now placed, in which they might not also be at the end of this adjournment. For his part, he had never seen that House in the habit of embarrassing his Ma- jesty's Ministers, on any occasion, when they had pledged themselves that any proceeding which they might recommend would be for the interest of the country. Mr PONSONBY was extremely sensible of the inconvenience to the public resulting from this further adjournment; but, at the same time, he was sensible of the delicacy, as well as the importance, of the situation of things on the continent ; and when Ministers, on their re- sponsibility, recommended another adjournment for three weeks, he could not bring himself to oppose it. It was not his intention to enter into any discussion of th< se affairs at that time— the proper day would come for that. He should feel great difficulty in voting for the amendment of his honourable friend, as it was never the habit of that House to enter any such justifica- tion of its conduct. He hoped his honourable friend would not press his amendment to a di- vision. The amendment was negatived without a di- vision, and the motion for postponing the other committees till the 23d inst. was carried in the affirmative, nem. con. On the motion of Mr VANSITTART, it was ordered that no private bills should be read a first time after Friday, the 28th inst. ; nor any report of a private bill to be received after Monday, the 23d of May Adjourned till Monday, the 21st iDSt. FRENCH FsiPERS. Paris, Feb. 23. H « r Majesty the Empress and Queen has re ceived the following news, respecting the situa- tion of the armies, to the 21st of February. Baron Marulez, commandant at Besancon, writes as follows:— ' f On the 31st of January the enemy made an attack from the side of Briguelle ; in the night, he caused to play upon the town two batteries of howitzers and cannon, and attempted an at- tack upon the fort of Chandone ; he vyas every- where repulsed, amidst the cry of" Vive l'Em- pereur."

MESSAGE FROM THE REGENT RECOMMENDING A FURTHER. ADJOURNMENT. Lord LIVERPOOL stated, that he had a message from the Prince Regent, acting in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, recommending it to the House, under the existing circumstances, further to adjourn itself to the 2lst of the present month ( March). Having read the message, as above, he moved, that the House do accordingly adjourn till Monday the 21st instant. Upon the question being put by the LORD CHAN- CELLOR, The Marquis of LANSDOWN said, that, after the lenthened period to which the House had already tieen adjourned, and the inconvenience necessarily attendant upon it, he could not help rising to deliver his sentiments upon the occasion. It was not from any want of respect, or confidence in his Majesty's Ministers, nor from a wish to throw embarrassment* in their way, for, on the contrary, if it appeared to him that it would even interfere with those mo- mentous and truly important concerns that they were now engaged in, he would be the first to stand forward and oppose any such interruption. He must be allowed to express his individual regret that it should be deemed necessary to bring down such a message at so advanced a period He la- mented it the more, on account of the serious inter- ruption it must occasion to public business; and ob- served, that their Lordships must he aware, that, among other important measures, they st » od pijidg- ed to take'into their consideration a review and i- e gulation of the Corn Laws— a subject which he deemed of considerable importance.— Another point he would advert to, namely, the importance of dispatch in hearing Appeal Cases. His Lordship, after glancing at various measures that would be affected by such a delay, declared, that aconsidera lion of these circumstances made him indulge a hope, that his Majesty's Ministers would have ab- stained from bringing down such a message. The House, however, not being in possession of the grounds which justified such a measure, were not enabled to form a judgment either as to its necessity or policy ; but whenever those particulars were un- folded, lie should, for one, deliver his sentiments freely, in reprobation or otherwise. The Ear! of LIVERPOOL complimented the Noble Marquis for the candid manner in which he had treated the subject: and expressed his coinci- dence in some of the views which he had taken of it. With respect to the Noble Marquis's wish not to embarrass ministers, he gave him credit for the sincerity of his intentions ; but the great question he coijceived to be, whether, in the present state of affairs, desirable as a further adjournment is, any material inconvenience would arise ? and he could assure the Noble Marquis, and that House, that be fore the Prince Regent was advised to the measore, every pains were taken by his Mijes'. y's ministers to ascertain that point satisfactorily. Uuder every view of the subject, he gave it as his decided opi- nion, that no inconvenience could possibly arise that would by any means be an equivalent to the advan- tages gained by the adjournment. Lord, DARN LEY professed himself by no means disposed to embarrass ministers, but of such conse quence did the measure appear to him that he would, for the satisfaction of his own mind, put the question pointedly to the Noble Lord on the Woolsack—" Whether a considerable inconveni- ence must not ensue to the public business of that House i" The LORD CHAN'CF- LOR, from having been so directly called upon, stated, that no inconvenience would ensue if their Lordships thought proper to adopt the remedy they possessed, which was, that instead of his attending three days in the week, as now esiablished, for the dispatch of judicial busi- ness in that House, and the other days in the Court of Chancery, that they would determine that thejudicial business should proceed every day until the period lost by the present adjournment was regained. The Earl of DERBY objected to the adjournment to the 21st of March as it will bring it so near to the Easter Recess, that it may be said to be virtually to be an adjournment for six weeks; and in reality the great bulk of public business can- not be expected to be proceeded in until May. This consideration induced him to oppose it, al- though he did not feel disposed to press his oppo- tion so far as to throw any obstacle in the way of which, in his opinion, should have come in the second place. If the present mode of recom- AU the enemy's army is marching upon Troyes. General Girard has arrived with his corps, and the division of cavalry of General Roussel, at Sens; he had his advanced guard at Villa- neuve 1' Archiveque. The advanced guard of the Duke of Reggio is half way between No- gent and Troyes, at Chartres and at Mesgrigny; those of the Duke of Tarentum are at Pavilion. mending to the House to adjourn itself in times The Duke of Ragusa is at Sezanne, observing of great « elicacy had not been the usual one, he ( Mr W.) should have thought it rather an un- gracious method ; but it was warranted by pie- cedent, and he should say nothing against it. At present he should not oppose a motion for Ijournment, but would consent to it as readily s he had to the former, and for the same reasons. He would not express at that time < ny . taxiety, any hopes, or any fears ; but jvould reserve himself for that rime, when infor- mation should be furnished to the House ; and he expected that that information would be most rnple. The only tiling he was afraid of was, lest these long and frequent adjournments should be drawn into a pernicious precedent, when the me- tiory of these arduous times should be nearly r- sed away, and lest their constituent should consider them totally neglectful ofthe great du- ties which they had confided to them. He in- deed remembered, in 1799, a longer adjourn, ment than the present, but that was at a period of the year when public bissines was less likely to suffer by it. That these proceedings might not bf drawn into a pernicious precedent, he wished to put something on the journals ofthe House ' hat would satisfy posterity of the necessity of * iie » , and he hoped that there was nothing in the motion which he was about to make, that would prevent the Chancellor cf the Exchequer from agreeing with it.

The Duke of NORFOLK, after professing a like disposition not to impede, suggested, that if there should be a probability of a further adjournment, arising from imperious and unforseen circumstan- ces, whether it would not be strictly just to give the earliest intimation to the different suitors, ancl parties- concerned in business before the House, that they might govern themselves accordingly. The Earl of Liverpool explained, and said, that , . . • ~ uf. flibraltar, and a Russian brig, were driven on shore at the same time. The Flaxton, Mathen, and the Mary, Smith, trans- ports, laden with ordnance stores, & c. were totally lost on the 22d ult. off Gofee. Crews savetl. About 30 chests of accoutrements were saved out of tfie Mary. Two other transports are stated to be last. The Jane Gordon, M'Kell^ r, arrived at Liverpool from Newfoundland, was driven off that coast on the 6th January, in company with the schooner Vine, and parted from her the following day. The Falcon, Atkinson, from I . ondon to the Cape of G od Hupe, which put into I . - eon with damage, has been repaired and sailed from thence on 23d January. . e Wellington, Ferguson, from Picton, was floated off tl; e Herd Sand 21st ult. after being on shore 44 days, and carried into Shields harbour. The Lord Collingiivood, — i— from Newfoundland to Oporto, which was driven on'shore near Villa Conda, went to pieces on the night of the 25th January, and th • cargo lost.

The Duke of Rugusa would fall upon his left flank, if he should again engage himself. So'ssons is a place sheltered from a coup de main. General Winzrngerode, at the head of 4000 or 5000 light troops, summoned it to sur- render. General Rusca replied as he ough\— Winzingerode placed his 12 pieces of cannon in a batteiy ; unfortunately tbe first ball killed Ge- neral Rusca 5 1000 men of the national guards were the only garrison in the place ; they were thunderstruck, and the enemy entered Soiss > ns, where he committed all the horrors imaginable. The Generals who were in the place, and who should have taken the command upon the death of General Rusca, shall be brought befoie a council of inquiry, for this town ought not to have been taken. The Duke of Treviso re. occupied Soissons, on the 19th, and has re- organised the defence of it, General Vincent writes from Chateau Thierry, that 250 of the enemy's light troops having re. turned to Fere, in Tardenois, M. d'Arbaud Missun marched against them, with 60 horse of the gardes d'honneur, which he had collected, and, with the assistance of the national guards of the villages, already set out for that purpose. A letter fiom Penang, of the 25th July, men. tions, that the Minerva, Cap'ain RICHARDSON, with the Bombay and China ships, were all well, and were to leave that island for China on the 28th of the same month. Private letters from Holland state, that VER- HUEiLhas fixed a limited time to give uptheTexel fleet, provided the country continued in posses- sion of its present Sovereign. He has solemnly protested, that he will burn the whole of the shipping, in case measures are taken to compel him to surrender. Sixty Frenchmen are on board the ships, for the purpose of carrying into execution any orders of the Admiral for their destruction. A letter from Ancona, January 27. says, " The King of NAPLES having made his ar- rangements with the allies a month, since hia rroops entered this place, and made themselves masters both of the town and the port, without firing a shot. The French General retired into the citadel. Ragusa is also taken. In thii neighbourhood the French have now only remain- ing Corfu. Letters have been received bete from Malta, dated 5th Jan. which state that the plague has disappeared in that island. It was incorrectly reported in some of the public prints, that the two transports which have b- en recently lost on the Dutch coast, contained British troops. We regret, however, to luve to state, that they had on board part of the patrio- tic regiments of Frankfort and Nassau, which sometime ago came over from SoULT to Loni WELLINGTON.

The Congress of Chatillon still continues j but the enemy throws every difficulty in the way of it Cmqis I'ennemie y parte toute espece d'entravesJ. The Cossacks at every step stoj the couriers, and although we are but 30 leagues distance from Chatillon, in a direct line, couriers do not arrive but after four or five days journey. It is the first time the rights of nations have in this manner been violated. Among nations the least civilised, the couriers of Ambassadors are respected, and no obstruction given to the com- munications of negotiators with their Govern- ment. The inhabitants of Paris might have expected the greatest misfortunes, had the enemy arrived at their gates, and tlley surrendered tjiejr city Drury Lane, in the character of Shyiock, in the delineation of which he received the most distinguished applause. He has appeared since in the character of Richard III. His perform, ance of which was the mast perfect of any that has been witnessed since the days of Garrick.— His deadly conflict with Richmond was mana- ged with superior skill, and displayed such tran-, scendent excellence, that electricity was never more instantaneous in its operation. Every box resounded with bravo! The pit rose with one accord, and with waved hats gave repeated cheers. Mr KEAN is about 2i years of age. Mr CQUTTS, soon after the first appe rrance of Mr KEAN in the character of Richard, sent him a gold watch, chain, seals, See. and thirty guineas, with a very handsome letter, testifying his ad- miration of the talents he had displayed, and re- questing his acceptance of what accompanied the letter, as a small return for the pi. asure which his performance had affprded.

CAPTURE OF ANOTHER FRENCH FRIGATE. • ' t1** > 1 i By a private letter which reached town this morning, we learn, that a telegraphic dispatch has been received by the Admiralty, announcing the capture of another of the enemy's frigates. A heavy fall of snow had prevented the particu- lars from being received in time for the post. f" v if ( W 1 J Paris papers to the 2Sth ult. were received on Tuesday. They contain an official report from the armies, tsgether with some articles of less authentic character, on the same subject. The French army seems to be nearly in the position in which Prince SCHWARTZENBERG was lately about to place the grand army of the allies, with one flank resting on Mery, and the other on Montereau. A few detached parties have been spread on the different roads toward Troyes, at which latter place the allies were concentrating. The official report only comes up to the even- ing of the 20th, when BONAPARTE'S head- quar- ters. were at Nogent. A minor paper, of the 23d, places his head- quarters on the 21st, at Troyes; but this fact, not to mention its im- probability, is directly contradicted by other pa- pers of the same, date; nor does even the Moni- teur of the 24th give the least reason to suppose that the French head- quarters had been removed " from Nogent. The capture of Soissons by WINZINGERODE is announced with much misrepresentation. Its garrison is reduced to 1000 national guards ; and it is said, that they were all thunderstruck on seeing the first shot kill their leader, General RUSCA. The town was re- occupied by MOR- TIER, on the 19th ; and the Generals who com- manded under RUSCA are to be brought to trial for having surrendered it to the enemy. The dispatch mentions an unsuccessful attack upon Besancon, and announces that ANGEREAU has left Lyons, with a chosen corps d'armee, to march into Franche Comte and Switzerland. I The conferences at Chatillon are merely no- ticed, for the purpose of observing, that every possible obstacle and difficulty are thrown in their way by the allies. The accession of MUKAT to the cause of the allies is now put beyond all doubt, by an of- ficial notification from Count MOLLE, minister of justice, ordering all Frenchmen to quit the service of the King of NAPLES in three months, in consequence of his having declared war against France. Tiie Moniteurs of the 24th contain a report respecting Admiral VERHUEIL, commander of the Texel fleet; this officer has thrown him- self into Fort Lasalle, where he had refused three ( summonses, declaring he would be faithful to his oath to the Emperor, and defend himself to the last extremity. In other respects, these papers are very unimportant; they contain no informa- tion respecting the movement of the CROWN PRINCE ; nothing relative to the state of Hol- land. In the report, respecting that traitor to his country VERHUEIL, those Hollanders, who are now contending for their liberties, are styled " Insurgents." The Spaniards, it may be re- collected, were for five years thus styled, and now this very NAPOLEON, who wished to depict Ahem in the most degrading colours, is axious to be called their good friend and ally. May the fortune of the Dutch be equally propitious. There is something in the tone of this last official dispatch, infinitely more bold than those which for some considerable time have preceded it. Does this proceed from a confidence of strength in the French EMPEROR, or from a conviction on his part of the pacific intentions of the Emperor of AUSTRIA ? signed on the 9th or 10th, and be in London on the loth inst. There1 are thousands laid, that they would be signed on- the 10th, and odds are given when the date is put off to the 12th. " We have no additional intelligence regard- ing the firing heard near Flushing, but it is highly probable, that the English and Russian force which, according to our Dutch papers ( which have reached us of one day more recent date than any previously received), is considerable in that neighbourhood, has been endeavouring, under the gallant hero of St Sebastian, to suc- ceed in the reduction of Walcheren. The fol lowing are extracts from the journals inour pos- session « ' Brussels, February 9. " His Serene Highness the Duke of Saxe Weimar has arrived here, and also his Royal Highness the young Prinee of Orange.

" For the surrender of Delfi'yl a treaty is now on the tapis, and we anxiously expect the result. " On the 10th, in the forenoon, the corps of volun- teers, commanded by Colonel Van Heemstra, arrived at Gorcum, from the vicinity of Keevorden, in order to proceed the next day to Appingdam. " Groningen, February 10. " With respect to the guard of honour which tbe de- partment of the Weser had been obliged to furnish, the following account has been received:— It broke up with the 9th squadron of the 4th regiment, proceeding from Lyons to Haguenau. Being separated from this squadron at Strasburgh, the guard arrived at Mete on the 6th December, ar. d on the 12th all their horses were taken from them, and they were disarmed and treated as prisoners. From Metz they were subsequently taken in waggons, to be eonveyed to Grenoble, and since we have no account of these unfortunate exiles. " Breda, February 14. " Tt appears that the French have again made a sor- tie from Antwerp, nn the side ofLier and Hongstraten. W « have accounts of the capture of Maubuge andConde. The English head- quarters are at Zimdert. We have also some English troops in garrison, and some of the Westphalian landwehr. « Harlem, Feb. 24. " The Reynard and Dolphin privateers have carried into Calais the Limerick packet, bound from Lime- rick to London, and the Channon, bound from Ply- mouth to Sunderland. The Prince of Neufchatel American privateer, of 14 guns and 137 men, put into Calais on tbe 27th ult.; she had taken nine English vessels, viz— two brigs, with wine, from Madeira ; two ditto from Newfoundland; two ditto from St Michael; a ship from Buenos Ayres; a transport from Passage, and a sloop from Guernsey. The Serpent American letter of marque has captured, and sent into Rochelle, the English vessel the Bachelor, bound from New- foundland. An American privateer has carried into Sables an English vessel of 500 tons, laden with hides and oil. The two Houses of Parliament assembled on Tuesday, and respectively received messages from his Royal Highness the PIUNCE REGENT, recommending their further adjournment until tjjjie 21st instant. There have been precedents for such messages; and in the present instance the intimation was agreed to, with a very few remarks, by different speakers, chiefly relative to the stoppage of the private business at present before Parliament. The important object, with a view to which the adjournment was under- stood to be proposed, viz. the discussion of the pending negotiation, was studi « uily avoided. The House of Lords wa3 numerously at- tended, and in the House of Commons upwards of 200 members were present. PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE. London, March 2. " The attention of the public is almost wholly engrossed with the nature and character of the commission with which Mr ROBINSON is in- trusted, and the following is understood to be, in the best informed circles connected with Go vernmert, the extent of the duty he discharged: " Mr Robinson had the charge of a proposal from Napoleon to the allies, which Lord Castlereagh, as Spoilt for the British Government, did not think pro- > per, under his own exclusive responsibility, to accept; lint be considered it to be so far deserving the attention of his aolleagues, that he transmitted it by his secretary to this country. The proposal so made, after much deliberation in the Cabinet, has not been rejected, but modified, and in a way that ministers feel strongly per- t snaded that the French Plenipotentiaries will be au- thorised to accede to the modification. " It is further said to have been plainly stated by Mr Robinson, for the information of ministers, that, on ac- I c unt of the want of magazines, and the means em- pliyed by the French functionaries to destroy, inter- I ciand convey off the provisions, the allied armies | have no option, excepting that of proceeding directly to I Paris, or receding to the right bank of the Rhine " " B is lie opinion of the best informed cir- " Under the head of Ratisbon, February 7th it is stated that reinforcements of cavalry had ar- rived there, amounting to 2450. " From Vienna, under date of the 4th Febru- ary, it is communicated, on the authority of Field Marshal BELLEGAIIDE, that General NU- GENT, having previously caused the fort of Cos senatica to be invested, carried the entrenched village by assault, on the 5th January. The fort surrendered upon capitulation, at the moment that General Count NUGENT had made every preparation for bombarding it. The garrison were made prisoners of war, but were to be al- lowed to return home. " The French commandant, LEGAY, did not wait for the moment of the troops marching out, but took to flight. The Marquis SOMMARION defeated the enemy in the viciiity of the Lake of Garda. A French vessel was attacked on the lake, carrying two guns, which Captain BAN- NAL, with a small force, captured and conveyed safe to Riva. On the 17th January, in the even- ing, Captain BENKO, with a company of the frontier'regiment of St George, embarked in 25 small boats, and landed about midnight upon the island of Grado, and got possession of the fort and the whole island. The enemy fled in a number of small vessels, two of which were carried with two guns, and two others, laden with ammunition, were taken, 10 pieces of can- non were also taken at Grado, four at Porto Baso, three at Porto Legno, and two at Stoba, and a considerable quantity of military stores in all those places. " Much consequence is attached Jin America to the choice of their new Speaker in Congress. We have been favoured with the subsequent ac- count of the proceedings from some republican journals of the latest dates, which have been transmitted through a private hand. " Boston, January 27. " From Washington. " Shortly after tile House had assembled this morn ing, Mr Clay, tbe Speaker, adverting to his late foreign appointment, rose, and addrened the members as fol- lows :— " GENTLEMEN,— I have attended you to- day to an- nounce my resignation of the distinguished situation in this House with which I have been honoured by your kindness. In taking leave of you, gentlemen, I shall he excused for embracing this last occasion to express to you, personally, my thanks for the frank aad liberal support the chair has experienced at your hands — Wherever I may go, and in whatever situation I may be placed, I cannot cease to cherish, with the fondest remembrance, sentiment* of esteem and respect, withwhich you have inspired me." " The House then proceeded to the choice of a new Speaker, and Mr CHEEVIS, having the majority, was conducted to the chair, when he made the following short, permanent, and hand- some address, signifying his acceptance of the office, and his sense of the honour conferred upon him. " GENTLEMEN, " I thank fyou for the flatteriug and distinguished honour you have conferred upon me. The best ac- knowledgment I can make of the gratitude which 1 very profoundly feel, will be the exertion of every faculty 1 possess, to prove that your favour is not entirely un- merited. I am aware of the importance of the situation to which you have elevated me, and of the difficult nature of tbe duties which it imposes. The difficulty to dischjrge them with reputation, is not a little in- creased by the great ability with which they have been executed by the gentleman who has just ascended from the chair ; but, gentlemen, Fwith your support I shall not despair. Err, undoubtedly, I often shall; and when my errors shall be calculated to affect, in the, smallest degree, the interest of the House or the nation, I shall court your correction, and submit with cheerfulness and pleasure to your authority; but if they be imma- terial, as frequent differences of opinion between the House and its presiding officer, can add nothing Jto its " The Fort William'* Captain PARISH, from London to Bengal, which sailed from Ports, inouth the 31st December, with a large fleet for ihe East Indies, and under convoy of the Med- way man of war, Revolutionaire, and Briton fri- gates, was tOwed into Madeira, the 28th Janu- ary, by the Briton frigate, having been dismasted. " The Sibella, HAYS, from Sierre Leone to Barbadoes ; Mary cf Waterford, Trimook, and Eleonora, with some others, were taken by the Alcmene and Iphigenia, French frigates ( since captured by the Venerable man of war and Cyane sloop), and supposed to be burnt. " The Cambridge, Captain EVANS, from London, has arrived at the Havannah, after beating off a Carthegenian privateer, which at- tacked her, although the Cambridge hailed her, and said she was an English vessel. " The investigation of the imposition practis- ed on the Stock- Exchange still continues, but is nearly at its close. From the great body of evidence already taken on the subject, it clearly appears that the fraud will be traced to some high sounding names, at the west end of the town, and one amongst them has been long celebrated as a great patriot, and the seaman's friend.

" Government has received from Admiral Verhueil, official dispatches, dated the 12th of this month. " The Admiral, who commands the Texel fleet, has known, by his good dispositions and his courage, how to preserve it untouched in Nieuwe- Diep, and cause the fortifications which defeud the Helder and the road of the Texel to be respected. " For this purpose he shut himself up in Fort Lasalle, with the 63d Equipage de Hautbord, and all the other French who were embarked in the fleet. " Obliged to suspend the great works of the Nieuwe- Diep, he dismissed 1600 Spanish prisoners who were employed upon them, and of whom it is but justice to say, that they went away expressing their attachment to the Admiral, and spontaneously giving him their word not to serve before their return into Spain. " It was to be feared that the Dutch sailors would not be proof against the insinuations which the insur- gents would cause to be conveyed to them ; the Admi- ral gave permission to all those who wished it to re- turn, and he, by this means, freed himself from all that could give him uneasiness in his courageous determina- tion of defending himself to the last extremity. " A small number of chosen Dutch officers, faithful to the oath which they have taken to the Emperor, have sworn to share the fate of the Admiral, and of the French crews, which, with some detachments of artil- lery and troops of the line, form the garrison of fort Lasalle. " The fort was at first surrounded by Cossacks, who were not able to prevent different sorties from the gar- rison ; they were afterwards replaced by troops of the line, which d^ ily announce attacks which are little dreaded. The Admiral has three times been summoned to surrender; at the end of December, by the Prince of Orange; in January, by a Colonel Tetzey, in the ser- vice of England; and on the 9th inst. by a General de Jonge, styling himself commandant of the Dutch forces. The Admiral's reply to these three summonses has been uniform; and was, that immovable in that fidelity which he had sworn to the Emperor, defended by good fortifications, having under his orders a numerous and devoted garrison, abundantly supplied with provisions and ammunition, they might attack him, but not pro- pose to him to surrender.— Moniteur, Feb. 24.

On Friday last, as Mr G. DICKSON was re- turning home from Haddington, about nine o'clock, a man in sailor's clothes leapt out of the hedge near the toll of Pencaitland, and, seizing the tails of his coat, demanded his money, threatening, if he refused to deliver it, or if he made the least noise, he would blow his brains out with a pistol, which he held to Mr DICK- SON'S breast. Mr DICKSON told him h? would give him none, and, having stunned him by a blow on the head with a stick, he threw the villain down, and ittempted to wrest tbe pistol from him. Unfortunarely it went off in the struggle, and wounded Mr DICKSON slightly in the left arm._ He was able, however, with the assistance of two farmers who came up at this moment, to secure the man, and take him to Pencaitland, where he was put into an empty house till next day, when he was to be condu: ted to Haddington ; but unfortunately, in the night time, he broke the tiles on the roof, and got off.

The farm buildings are all sufficiently commodious, in the best repair, and covered with slate.
