The Paris Papers received yeslerday state, that the Allied Sovereigns have postponed their departure from Paris, without fixing another day for it. These papers contradict the report that Bonaparte, repulsed from lilba by the inhabitants, had arrived at Gibraltar, by tbe Undaunted frigate, whence lie had sent a request to be received in England. The papers say* that he had landed at Porto Ferrajo, and add nothing about a repulse. We are glad of this, for, if he will have English protection, let him go to Botany Bay. The Duchy of Parma, with its dependencies, given to the Princess Maria Louisa and her son, Napoleon Charles Francis, contains about 380,000 inhabitants. The revenues are estimated at four millions of fraucs, (£ 166,000 sterling). Agriculture, and the internal Administration are susceptible of considerable improve- ment. This Duchy, originally governed by the Farnese family, belonged to a branch ofthe House of Bourbon. Austria had the reversion. In 1801, the First Consul caused it to be guaranteed to him by the King of Spain, who undertook to oblige the Duke to cede it to the French Republic. The Duke peremptorily refused. A violent cholic suddenly put an end to his life on the 8th of October, the same year. Some idea may be formed of the vast exertions used by Bonaparte in the formation of a Navy, which he expected would have been able some day to cope with that of Great Britain, and also of Ihe amazing im- portance of Antwerp as a Naval Depot, when it is known that at the time of the admission of the English garrison into Ihat city, al the beginning of Ihis month, there were, and are at present, actually on the slips, in a stale of great forwardness, 17 sail of the line, four of which are of 110 guns each, the others of 80 guns, three frigates, and the same number of brigs, all of wbich could be launched before the- frost sets in next winter; and there are also in the Scheldt, lit for sea, 21 sail of the line, 10 frigates, and a number of small craft. No man appreciated the value of Antwerp and the Scheldt better than Bonaparte, and full well would this country have known it, had he continued in possession of Ihe Government of France. The want of horses is said lo be so great in France, from the wanton destruction made of them by Bona- parte, tbat there scarcely remains a horse for a remise, or gentleman's carriage. The fiacres, or hackney- coaches, have a few ; but they are so miserable, that the Parisians themselves are ashamed of them. His Majesty Ferdinand VII. arrived at Saragossa on the 5th, under discharges of artillery, and the most animated acclamations of the people. The open car- riage which had been prepared for him, was drawn by those honourable inhabitants who had contributed so much to Ihe glory of that city. His Majesty desired to be accompanied by the excellent Joseph Palafox. The heroines of Saragossa, simply and modestly dressed, assisted in drawing the carriage of his Majesty with ribbons, which they had attached to it.— The English General Whitlingham preceded Ihe King. The Waterford Electiou teriViin'ited on the I Oth, after fourteen days contest, by the return of Mr. Power. The total numbers polled were Palliser 804— Power 864? making a gross majority of 60 on the fourteen days polling.— After the polling had proceeded for a short time ou the 10th, Colonel Palliser thanked his friends for their support, and declared that he would give no further trouble to the electors.— This contest is likely to be followed by another, as it appears from the Irish papers received yesterday, that the friends of Lord George Beresford have commenced an active canvass to secure his election for the county of Waterford, iu consequence of the elevation of Marshal Lord Beresford to the Peerage. A Paper of yesterday, under dale, Paris the Iltb, announces the appointment of Talleyrand to be the Secretary for foreign Affairs 1 the Abbe Montesquieu to be Minister of the Interior: and Berthier and Marmont to be Captains of the King's Body Guard. Joint National Humanity.— A considerable body of British sailors, prisoners, ( not less than three hundred), were embarked a few days since, on the coast of Brittany, for England. As general a spirit of cleanliness character- ised their appearance, as au uniform decorum tlid their conduct, through the whole of their march. Being seve- rally billetted 011 the inhabitants for some days before tbey were embarked, one of them requested permission tosee the superintendant, Monsieur Kearnie, which being grant- ed him, the British tar, ill the fulness uf a feeling heart, nearly thus addressed him:—" And please your liouour, 1 " don't come lo trouble you with any bother about our- " selves; we are all as well treated as Cbrislians can be; " but there is one thing that makes my food sit heavy on " my stomach, and that of my two messmates."—" What " is it, my brave fellow, ( replied Ihe superintendant), the " persons on whom you are quartered don't grudge it to " you?"—" No, your honour, if they did, that would not " vex us."—" What then would you complain of?"— " Ouly, your honour, it is, that the poor folk cheerfully " lay their scanty allowance before us, for our mess, and " we have just found out that they have hardly touched a " mouthful themselves, or their six babes for the last two 11 days, and this we take to be a " greater hardship than any " we found in a prison 1" Mr. Kearnie instantly loid them, that from this hardship they should all be relieved, and instantly ordered tbe billetts to be withdrawn, and reward- ed all parties for Iheir humanity, so compassionately exercised, and interchanged! Paris, May 14.— Tne solemn service for the lale Kings, Louis XVI. and Louis XVII. for the late Queen Marie- Antoinette, Archduchess of Austria, and Madame Elizabeth of France, took place to- day in the Metropolitan Church. The King proceeded thither without any retinue; his Majesty assisted incognito at the ceremony, in a tribune expressly prepared. Madame lite Duchess of Angouleme was in another tribune, close to that of the King, equally incog.— His Royal Highness Alonsieur, Mouscigncur Ihe Duke of Berri, aud M. the Prince of Conde, who were the chief mourners, proceeded to tile Cathedral without re- tinue, and were conducted by tbe Marquis de Dreux Breze, Grand Master of tlie Ceremonies of Francis; by the Mar- quis de Rochemore, Master of tbe Ceremonies ; and by Messrs. de Watronville and St. Felix, Assistant Masters of the Ceremonies, lo the places destined for them in the choir. Deputations of the Senate, Legislative Body, Court of Cassation, Court of Accounts, of the University, Royal Court, Municipal Body, National Guard of Paris, the Marshals of France, Ancient Officers of tbe King's House- hold, several Generals, & c. filled ihe choir aud the nave. A tribune was reserved for their Majesties the Emperors of Austria, Russia, and tbe King of Prussia; and several olher tribunes for foreigners of distinction..- This mourn- ful and affecting ceremony, which excited no attention by its pomp, attracted a more numerous assemblage than the most brilliant solemnities would have done. The ceulinels established in different parts of the Church were obliged to yield lo the pressure of tbe crowd ; all were animated by the same sentiments ; all were eager to perform the same duties.— The Abbe Duval pronounced a funeral sermon, which produced a strong effect upon the whole of the con- gregation. The melancholy scene— the imposing assem- blage of so many august personages— the voice of the preacher, which sounded through the immense crowd, who observed Ihe strictest silence— all these gave to the ceremony the noblest appearance, and will leave long re- collections. We can repeat wilh the eloquent preacher : " The Almighty has heard our prayers; he lias beheld our tears flow ; Ihey have averted his anger; our misfor- tunes are passed; aud happier days arc going to shine upon our country." WEDNESDAY; MAY 18. The Corporation of Paris had an audience of the King on the lSlh instant, at which they entreated his Majesty lo honour them with his company at the Town- house, according to the custom of the Kings, his ancestors. His Majesty signified his gracious assent, saying, that the time which he would fix would be at the epoch of a general peace, which he hoped was near at hand. Letters from Paris say, that in the Sitting of the Senate and Legislative Assembly of the 31st instant, it is the intention ofhis Majesty Louis XVIII. to propose that the Senators shall keep their titles and incomes, and seals fur life, but that they shall not be hereditary. And that from the Noblesse of France there shall be in all time to come an elective Senate, upon the principle of that adopted on the Union of Ireland with Great Britain; that is to say, that upon Ihe death of any Senator an election shall take place of one lo the Senate, who shall hold it for life.— The Senate to be 300 in all. Paris. May 14.— The faction here, whose only aim was to insure 10 themselves Ihe possession of their ill- got- ten honours and riches, are now strongly suspected to have recourse to means of terror to frighten the King into their terms; at least, what happened two or three days ago, corroborates that report. Upwards of foul- or five hundred workmen, of" all kinds, assembled before tbe Thuilleries, under the windows of his Majesty, and commenced a revo lutionary howl for bread, work, intermixed with cries of long live the Emperor, who used to give them both. The Duchess of Angouleme, it is said, in her alarm, expressed her regret at haviug quitted England, as this was tbe way the first revolution commenced. The Comte D'Artois came out, and was received with cries of" Vice V Empereur." He told the multitude that he was not surprised they should still remember the Emperor, but that the period was come for crying " Vive le RoiThat every thing should be done to relieve their wants, but lliat the time since the arrival of his Majesty had been too short to allow much to be done. That inquiry should immediately tie made into their cir- cumstances, nnd that bread should be given to those most in want. This movement amongst ihe workmen lasted two days, and the third a body of women alternated something of a similar nature, but were speedily dispersed by the National Guards. What renders these collections of people more suspicious is, that several ofthe workmen having been arrested anrl their habitations searched, Ihey were found to contain abundance of bread and provisions. Tbey are considered therefore as hired disturbers of the public peace, and the general suspicion points to the Senate, who plainly foreseeing Iheir approaching dowofall, endeavour by terror to make Ihe King and liis family cling to them for protection. Paris Papers state that measures have been taken by the King, for rendering the superior and the respectable classes of the French community inde- pendent of the humours of the Bonapariian soldiery, and of Ihe political agitators, who would make them their instruments aud supports in another tyranny over the nation. All the Nobility and Gentry, landed and professional, with all others, who have most interest in the public prosperity, tranquillity, and real liberty, are expected to be enrolled in the National Guards, A letter from Venice, dated April 23d, says " This place and all the forts dependent upon it were delivered on the 20th to the Austrian troops, commanded by Marshal Baron de Marchal. Extract of a letter from Antwerp, dated May 7 :— " The agents of the Hanse Towns in Belgium, and their Consul at this port, have taken possession of the domains of the Old Hanseatic House, which had been sequestered under Bonaparte's government. The first use which this city has made of its restoration to liberty has been to send a Memorial to the King of France, intreating that the pictures which were taken from our churches may be again restored." Vienna, May 4.— The Emperor has given orders to prepare the apartments at Schoenbrun, for all the Court. Her Imperial Highness the Archduchess Maria Louisa is expected here about the 13th of this month. It is supposed that our Monarch will go to England with their Majesties the Emperor of Russia and the King of Prussia; and that after this, these illustrious Personages will come to Vienna. Already every preparation is made for the reception of these illustrious Guests. On Saturday last, G. Blackman, Esq. citizen and goldsmith, paid the fine of £ 400 and 20 marks, with the usual fees, to be excused serving the office of Sheriff of London and Middlesex. R. Waller, Esq. citizen and cooper; T. Kemble, Esq. Citizen and j Salter, and J. Avion, Esq. Citizen and Vintner, have '. also severally paid the said fine. Gen. Sir J. Hope, Lord Niddry, had scarcely received his patent for his recent title, before he succeeded to a Scottish Earldom aud an English Baronage, by the death of his half brother, tbe Earl of Hopetoun. A singular circumstance occurred I11 February last at St. Vincent's. A Gentleman named Whitlow, sailing in a boat at night from the leeward part of the island to Kingston, and sitting in the stern sheets, a large shark that had followed, made at length a spring at his intended victim, knocked off his hat; but, at the same time, fell into the boat. The gentleman, wilh great presence of mind, immediately jumped up, and secured the voracious monster with a cloak anil some bandages. It measured 12 feet, and was of enormous weight. The Duke of Marlborough's income was more than triple that proposed for the Duke of Wellington, besides the entire completion of Blenheim House; but it is to be observed, that this vast income, amounting, if we are not mistaken, to £ 70,000 per annum, arose from places, of some of which he was deprived in his life- time, and all of which went from his family at his dealh. Marlborough, too, was a man of great saving. Swilt used to say of him, that in all Ihe vicissitudes of his warfare, lie never lost his baggage I \ It is hoped the citizens of London will not act, iu entertaining the Sovereigns expected in London, as they did, wheu they entertained their present Majesties i at Guildhall in 1762— publish a bill of Ihe price of 1 every article, that the Royal guests might see what a I vast sum they had cost them. The Cdlliedral of Bangor.— Ex parte Doctor Breene and others.— The LORD CHANCELLOR 011 Tuesday, gave judgment ou this long pending aud important petition tbat had been filed some years ago, grounded on au Act of Parliament tbat had been passed in the reign of King James II constituting an establishment at Bangor, in North Wales, for the support of a Cathedral Church and Choir, as well as Preachers of the Protestant and Welsh Religions and modes of worship, to be sustained from certain chinch revenues that had increased in value from the original annual sum of £ 40 to £ 140, but in 1769 amounting to the yearly return of,£ 1750 a year. The one- third oftiie money was, by the stipulations ofthe Act, to be applied to Ihe support of the poor Vicarial preachers, and the olher two- thirds to the repairs aud improvements of the Cathedral, Choir, and Chapel of Ease thereto appertaining. Dr. Breene, the petitioner, aud the singers of the Choir, complained that 110 increase of their salaries had taken place, from Ihe great rise iu the church re- venues in this case, to a proportion of which lliey were entitled. His Lordship, after a long statement ofthe proceedings which had taken place, directed another lit and proper petition to be presented lo the Bishop of Bangor and Dean and Chapter, in respectful terms.— Judgmeut fur peti- tioners. THURSDAY, MAY 19. The Duke of Wellington, who is appointed Minister Plenipotentiary to France, will negotiafo and sign the Definitive Treaty. His Grace, we understand, has notified his acceptance of this high office. Mr. Robinson, Lord Casllereagh's Secretary, arrived yes- terday with dispatches from Paris, wilh which he waited 011 the Prince Regent at Carlton Douse- Two Bremen Mails arrived yesterday, and the intelligence they bring from Hamburgh is of some importance:— General Gerard has taken the command of Davoust's army, Davoust being ordered forthwith to Paris. On relinquishing the command, he published an Order of the Day, praising highly his successor aud the conduct of the ariny. All the statements concur in the fact that Davoust had most reluctantly Submitted to the new order of things. On the evening of t o 12th inst hq was superseded in the command of the troops by the arrival of General Gerard from Paris. Davoust complied with the best grace he Could, and announced the fchange by a Proclamation, in which he paid a deserved compliment to his successor. Not- withstanding this, it is affirmed that his previous contumacy hail so highly displeased the French Go- vernment, that Gerard had received orders lo send him home under arrest; aijd in conformity with this account, it is said that he left Hamburgh 011 the 13th inst. as a prisoner of State. It was very strongly reported on Change, that it is the fixed determination of our Government, not to suffer the Americans to fish upon the Banks of New- foundland, and Ihat no American vessel will be per- mitted to pass the Cape of Good dope, so that the whole of the China trade will be taken from them. Lord Lynedock came to Rotterdam about the same time tbat Lucien Bonaparte was there. His Lordship had come from the army, for the purpose of havin* a particular interv iew with tlic Prince of Orin^ e* The French senator, . Carnot, late G ovemor of Antwerp, passed at the same time On his return to Paris. Carnot, it was understood, gave up Antwerp vvith great reluctance. The Betsey, Stephens, arrived at Aberdeen on Tues- day sc'nnight, from Drontheim, afler a passage of seven days. She has not brought any intelligence of importance. Prince Christian was still at Christiana, The people were very averse to an union with Swedeu, but tio decisive measures had been taken. The King of Denmark had demanded all their guu- boals. They had heard of the reverses sustained by Bonaparte, but no intelligence of the counter- revolution had then reached Drotltheim. The Scourge American priva- teer, lately in the North Seas, was lying in Drontheim. Field Marshal Lord Beresford has left toivn, to meet the Emperor of Russia at Calais. Not less than Forty Sail of the Line are ordered to rendezvous at Spithead by the 4th of next month, in order to form a Naval Spectacle worthy of the characteristic maritime power that so pre- eminenlly distinguishes the British Isle. It is to he composed of two distinct Lines of Batile, each accompanied with various vessels of inferior force, fire ships, & c. in order that the scene may convey to the Royal Foreigners, who will be present, a correct idea of a Naval Action, which will be represented with all its tactical manoeuvres as near as can possibly be efiected. The garrison and veteran battalions, the second bat- talion of the 29th, ( the highest numbered second battalion) and a few olher skeleton second battalions, are to be reduced on the 24th of June. Not any of the militia before the 24th July, and then only a few regiments. The reduction of the effective second battalions will not take place earlier thau 24th Sep- tember, and probably not before the 24th December next. It is understood that the half pay is to be increased one- third. The 14th light dragoons are under orders for Ame- rica. Lord Harcourt's fine regiment, the IGth, ex- pect a similar order, as they have always beeu bri" ad. ed together. The first great impression which was made bv the Duke of Wellington, on Soult and Stichet, iu the late battle, arose from a judicious exchange of six for nine pounders throughout the whole line of our artillery. His lordship contrived to move the latter with almost equal facility as the former, and their effect in slaugh- ter was terrific beyond description. The Emperor of Russia is a Member of the Royal Humane Society In this country, and some time back when the visit of his Majesty to England was first spoken of, the society promised themselves Ihe honour of his company at their anniversary dinner this day. It would have been, indeed, a proud day lor the truly humane, had they received this illustrious friend yf humanity. On Tuesday a large quantity of specie was embarked at Portsmouth in fhe Hyperion frigate* Capl. Cumbv, with which she sailed yesterday morning for Bor- deaux, for the payment of the English forces. On Tuesday last lianier, the noted pedestrian, renewed the attempt, in wiiich he had failed the preceding week, of running from Hastings to li ve, and thence to Hastings, a distance of twenty- one miles, iti two hours and three quarters. The wager was for ten guineas. He started from Hastings at 10 in the morning, and reached the Market- house, at live, in one hour anil 10 minutes; thence, without. def; y, he again started for Hastings, where he arriverl 111 two hours, 44 minutesj 28 seconds; thereby winning his wager by 32 seconds. Early yesterday morning, a leather trunk, contain- ing wearingapparel and other valuables, worth upwards of £ 700, was cut from behind the travelling carriage of Colonel Stevens, between the Colonel's lodging, St. James's- street, and the Elephant and Castle. The Colonel was 011 his way to Dover, where he intended to embark for France, and amongst other property contained in the trunk were 100 guineas, which he hail" allotted to take wilh him, and several valuable trinkets belonging to Mrs. Stevens, who was with iiim 111 the carriage. ' fhe disturbances among the workmen siill continue in the manufacturing districts. So file as Sunday se'nnight, a number of armed men entered Ihe house of Mr. W. Matthews, in Bellergate, Nottingham, aud destroyed four silk knotted frames, threatening to murder any of the family who attempted lo stir, or create alarm ; aud, on the Thursday following, large bodies of men, principally stocking- makers, paraded the town of Leicester in a riotous and unla ful manner, in order lo intimidate their masters to advance their wages; but the Magistrates promptly ordered out the civil power, which prevented any serious mischief. A fine flock of sheep bad like to have been destroyed at a village near Melton Mowbray, on Ihe 23d lilt, by having administered to ' hern a drink ( composed of nitre, bark, and oil of vitriol) as a preventive from the red water. The danger was caused hy the nitre aud bark having been boiled together in a copper vessel t and the mixture was discovered to be very strongly impregnated with- copper. LONDON, IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.

He disclaimed imputing any ne ilect to the officer from w hom the return should have proceeded, and conceived that an act should be passed to compel tiie clerks of assize and of the peace 10 make the returns required by such order. The motion was agreed to. if, Mr. Sheriff Magony presented a petition from the City of London, praying tbat any alteration in the cOl'ri laws might not lake place till the next session. GIT ANTS TO MILITARY PEERS. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER moved the fur- ther consideration of a resolution relative to the annuity to be granted to Lord Lynedoch The Committee being formed, be staled thai it was customary to grant annuities for three lives, but as lhat plan would leave the successors to Ibe title deficient, he would move that the annuity be co- existent with the title; he could not, however, consent to augment the amount.— On proposing the resolutions a abort conversation ensued between Mr W Smith, SirC. MOVCK, Mr. S. WORTLEY and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, relative to the amount of Ihe annuity, when the latter slated, thai il was as large as those granted lo I. ord Duncan, Sir R Abercrombie, or Lord Nelsoli, afler the battle of Ihe Nile— The resolution grating jfsono per annum lo Lord Lynedoch and all the heirs to the title, was agreed fo.— Similar resolutions were agreed to respecting Lords Hill and Beresford The reports to be received on Monday. Tbe County Bridges Bill was read a second time, and committed for Tuesday next. CORN LAWS. ' Mr. BAVKF. S, pursuant to notice, rose tn submit bis motion relative to the corn trade. Before proceeding fur- ther on so important a question, he contended that they ought to have much more information respecting the pre- sent state of trade, and what it was likely to be fill next harvest. From Ihe uncertain state at present of our foreign relations, and from Ihe state of our currency, it was diffi- cult to determine what would be the result of the new state into which we were entering. It was, therefore, not desirable at this time to do any thing that would have a pci manent effect. Could 11 nv member satisfy him as to the future state of the corn market, he would in thai case lie enabled In enter on the discussion with some confidence; but as yet 110 satisfactory information was before ihem on those important parts of the subject. It naturally therefore occurred to hiin that a Committee would be desirable to make tbe necessary inquiries, and he could chiefly wish to confine Ihe attention of lhat Committee to the state of corn in the foreign market. The Committee could only obtain sueli information from oral testimony, as there were 110 documents on the subject that could be moved for. II was desirable to know in what degree importation was likely lo hear on our own produce. If there was no danger of a great importation, it would be better they should remain for some lime as they were, rather than to adopt pretna- tnrelv any permanent measure, lf the cheapness proceeded wholly from the abundance of the crop of lasl year, this was what was to he always desired, and the quantity, in thai case, would compensate the farmer for the cheapness. He also recommended that lire Commiltee should consist ofa small number, as be had often observed that a numerous Committee rather - retarded than facilitated inquiry where evidence particularly was lo be examined. The hon. mem- ber concluded by moving, " That a selcct Conuuilfee he appointed to inquire into the staleof Ihe corn trade, so far as related lo the warehousing of foreign corn." Mr. WILLIAM SMITH seconded the motion of the hon member, though lie did not exactly entertain the same views ou the subject The Commiltee proposed, he thought would require a greater field of inquiry, and more time, iu order tn render their report satisfactory, either to the House or the public He had been always of opinion that thev were 110I ripe for adopting any permanent measure 011 the subject. He therefore approved ot the Committee, as Ihe event would be to postpone Ihe measure, al least for this session of parliament. Before adopting any permanent measure of such extensive operation, they ought to know if tbe property lax was to lie taken off, as lhat would operate very much nil the subject They ou » lil lo know, therefore, what alteration the taKing off this tax would produce, before fixing any price on grain. He by 110 means approved of passing afbill forashort time, as the operations of agricullme ought not to te changed every year. He saw- no leason now for aey immediate measure, as there was no danger of the farmer suffering for one year. He hoped the proposition, therefore, would be acceded lo. Sir H. PARNELL was of opinion, that the hon. member hnd shewn no substantial ground for his motion. They were to consider what Ihe House had already done. The question was in a greaf measure already decided. There was certainly no fear at present of want of corn, but the object of tbe measure was to produce an increased quantity, by affording the necessary protection lo the farmer. ( Ilear, hear .') The question was not ibe ruin of Ihe farmer, bin whether foreign supply would not induce the fanner lo turn his land into pasture instead of growing corn.— Mr. BROADIIURST supported the motion, 011 the ground that further information as to the foreign market, and Hie quan- tity of corn in the country, was necessary to enable the House tn determine what should be the protecting price.— Mr ROSE repented a few of tlie objections he had made on former nights lo the report of the Committee, and tbe general expediency of Ihe proposed alteration.— Mr. Pi'rLr. replied shortly to the arguments urged by Mr. Bankes and Mr. W Smith. He contended, that Ihe object of the pro- posed inquiry was attained hy ihe investigation of lasl year, aud lhat every argument now urged lo await Ihe result of the next harvest, would equally apply 111 Ihe succeeding harvest, or any future year. He animadverted on the preposterous moment chosen to move the Committee, and called upon the House lo act consistently with the proceed- ing lo which il had already given ils sanction. SirJ. N FW PORT admit ted thai the attention of the Com- mittee was a good deal directed lo Ireland, not for the ex- clusive interest of that country, but to ascertain her capa- city to make England independent of foreign countries hy her own produce and that of Ireland He deprecated the influence of Ihe passions of the people, who never look beyond momentary gratification, Io future distress.— The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER was adverse to Ihe motion, if designed lo retard the progress of the business through the House; but admitted, that further information was w anting on the subject — Mr. PRESTON staled, 011 forty years experience in the staleof property, lhat Ihe average rent of land by Ihc acre in England, did not exceed 25 shillings. He opposed the motion for appointing a Com- mittee; as did also Mr. HUSKISSOW. — Mr. " B. Bathurst and Mr. Canning were for a Commit lee.-*. Mr. Bankes re- plied. Mr Peele and Sir John Seabright explained. After which the House divided, when llie numbers were— for the motion 42- against it 99— majority 57- Should the Sovereigns who are expected to pay Lon- don a visit, condescend to dine with the Citizens, they will soon see what it is that gives Englishmen superi- ority, and be convinced Ih it eating and fighting are more nearly allied than they had reason to suppose. The population of London is increasing every day in consequence of the approach of the illustrious visitors from the Continent, and the subsequent festi- vities. Indeed it seems to be the opinion, from the Metropolis to Ihe Land's end, thai, during such gaieties, r » j-' firnre out of London will be insirpportab't! FRIDAY, MAY 20, The Paris Papers of Tuesday, contain a Decree of the King, dated tbe 15th instant, in which Monsieur is declared Colonel- General of llie Swiss ; the Prince of Conde, Colonel- General of the Infantry of the Ljne; the Duke of Angouleme, Colonel- General of CuinRsiern and Dragoons; the Duke of Berry, Colonel General of Chasseurs and Light Horse Lancers; the Duke of Orleans, Colonel- General of Hussars ; and the Duke of Bouillon, Colonel- General of Light Infantry.— The Officers who enjoyed those titles under the former Government, are lo be Chief Inspector- Generals of their respeciive Corps, subject to the orders of the Princes ; but retain their preceding emoluments, rank, and honours.— By another Decree, of the same date, the conscripts of the year 1815 are alone entitled to return to their homes: those of the preceding years must return to their corps, when they will be discharged as circumstances may require. A Deputation of the Colonels of the Army, consist- ing of 42 Members, were presented to the King 011 Monday last. A Colonel Allain, who was the organ of ' llie Body, harangued his Majesty, and said, that Ihey had all risen from the ranks, and had learned conse- quently to obey, before they were Intrusted with command, which he said was a sure pledge of their inviolable fidelity to their legitimate Sovereign. The Address is concise, and much better written than most of those , we are in the habit of perusing. There seems to be every disposition in the new Government to conciliate the army. May nothing occur to disturb these symptoms of apparent harmony ! for the peace of all Europe is closely connected with the domestic tranquility of France. The following are the conditions, il is said, which our Government means to insist upon in negociating with the United States:—" The unequivocal recognition on the part of America, of the established law of na- tions, as incorporated with the British code— the ac- knowledgement of the right of search for Bi itish sea- men in American vessels— the safe and undivided pos- session of the American Lakes— the Ohio as the boun- dary— the restitution of Louisiana— and, in minor points, such variations from the present line of boundary as mav tend for ever to the security of our invaluable North American Colonies, and the well being of the Indian tribes, our allies— such restrictions in commerce, fisheries, & c. as may augment the prosperity of tho British empire, and put an end tn all vexatious inter- ference with her rights and privileges." The Bremen papers contain an interesting account of an interview between a Swedish Envoy and the Regent of Norway. If the conversation which took place 011 the occasion be correctly reporled, the Prince is a man of talent, and has evinced a moderate and dignified de- meanour in a situation, where ordinary men would be tempted to bluster. The more Christian Frederick en- gages our regard by his personal qualifies, the more reason there is to deplore and condemn the rashness of what Copy of llie President's Message to Congress: " Taking into view the mutual interest whic' 1 l'ie United States, & the foreign nations in amitv with s', IM11' have in a commercial intercourse, and the extenslIc changes favourable thereto, which have recently lakes place ; taking into view also the important advanta « - er which may otherwise result from adapting the state" o our commercial laws to Hie circumstances now existing. 1 recommend lo the consideration of Congress the ex- pediency of authorising, after a certain day, exhorta- tions ( specie excepted), from the United States, in vessels of the United States, and in vessels owned ami navigated by the subjects of Powers at peace with them; and a repeal of so much of our laws as prohibits the im- portation of articles not the property of enemies, but produced or manufactured only within their dominions. " I recommend also, as a niAre effectual safe- niard and encouragement of our growing manufactures" that the additional duties of imports which are to expire at the end of one year after a peace with Great Britain, be prolonged to the end of two years afler that event, and that in favour of our monied institutions the ex- portation of specie be prohibited throughout the same period." " March 31st, 1814." The above Message was transmitted by the President of the United States, to both Houses of Congress. ( Signed) JAMES MADISON. Washington, April 1, 1814. Paris Papers of Thursday last have reached toivn. The King has appointed a Commission of three, viz. D'Ambray, the Chancellor ; Montesqtiiou, the Minister j of the Interior; and a Monsieur Ferrand, to examine 1 the provisions of the new Constitution. The selection of these Members is termed a new proof ofthe paternal aud liberal sentiments of the French Monarch. The Paris Papers have lately, under the heads j Barcelona and Valencia, communicated pretended ' inlelligence of a violent schism between Ferdinand— j instigated by certain Minions of that young and inexperienced Prince— and the august assembly " of the Cortes. The intelligence cannot possibly be true. It would be painful to entertain such an opinion of the baseness and ingratitude of the Advisers of King Ferdinand. The Duke of Clarence has slruck his flag on hoard the Impregnable, in the Downs, and returned on Saturday night to town; advice having been received that the Emperor of Russia and King of Prussia did not propose leaving Paris before the Sth of June. Government, with a consideration worthy of the humanity of the country, has ordered every British prisoner returniug home to receive £ 1 on his landing on British ground. CRpt. Mottley has had the satis" faction of affording this most seasonable relief to 1000 poor fellows already. The St. Domingo, Sir J. B. Warren, has had a tedious passage of six weeks from Bermuda.

Admiral Cockhtirn was in the Chesapeake ; the Tenedos and as exercising a delegated authority in the first instance, he offers a horrible example of abused trust as well as of insubordination. The nearer he is to the Throne, the more his conduct is crirtiinal; and let lis never suffer the question to be drowned in the clamour of party de- clamation. Even the frank, unadulterated and unsus- picious character of the Norwegians renders his proceedings the more reprehensible; because, from motives of personal ambition, he takes an undue ad- vantage of their native courage and simplicity, to instigate them to resistance, which musl bring into the midst of their sequestered habitation the miseries of war, and the frightful effects of military licentiousness, without even the faintest hopes of success. It is understood that Messrs. Gallatin and Bayard have received dispatches from the American Govern- ment, containing instructions for the duty they are about lo undertake, of a most conciliatory nature. SATURDAY, MAY 21. By the Paris papers of Wednesday it appears that the French funds have risen to 60J; an indication of better hopes of a confirmed tranquillity.— These papers also assure lis of favourable intelligence from Norway, and that the King of Denmark, complying with his treaty with Sweden, renews his intimate connection with England. The Emperor of Russia and the King of Prussia Often enter the Theatre or Opera, at Paris, together arm in arm, without a single attendant. They pass together, or alone, from oue box to another, during the evening, as tney discover company, which they are desirous of joining. Sometimes llie Archduke Constautine accompanies his brother, or some General Officer; and in like manner the King of Prussia is at times joined by some one or other of the Prussian Princes. Both these Sovereigns pass from Iheir seals in the Theatres without any attendants or retinue; 011 the threshold of the Theatre, an Officer or two may clianre to wait to shew them to their respective carriages — The Emperor of Austria, on tbe contrary, never goes to public places but in great state, lie is attended by his Great Officers and a gnaid, which keep their place during the whole performance at the back or rather in the passage, without Ihe Imperial box, suffering none to come near it Ashe approaches to his box and retires from il, he is preceded by several branches of lights, before which the crowd are foi ceil to give w ay His Imperial Majesty in his person is of llie medium size— rather spare and thin ; his features small, and have lillle' expression.

A small island in the Archipelago, called by the Turks " Solomon's Island," disappeared in the night of the 26th of January, It was remarked by the adjacent Islanders, lhat the night was remarkably calm, and that scarcely a breath of wind blew. Three Greek families, the only inhabitants, were swept away. An affray took place yesterday in one of the Com- miltee Rooms of a certain Hon. House, between one of Ihe City Members ( SirJ.

The trial of Ihe persons charged with having been concerned in the fraud on the Stock Exchange is, we understand, fixed for the 9th of June, and will take p'ace at Guildhall, London. The cause of the late rise in the Public Funds has been erroneously a tributed to the postponement of the Loan. It was, in fact, because the redemption of Omnium, from the constant supply of money, was effected without any defalcation or embarrassment. postscript. LONDON, Monday Night, May £ 3, 1814.

IMPORTANT INTELLIGENCE. By the ship Chauncey from New York, the following important intelligence relaltve to the proceedings of Congress, has been received.

Mr. Clee, Strefibrd £ 2 2 0 O11 Saturday Inst came on the election of a member to represent this Borough in Parliament, in the room of Lieutenant General Sir Kov. land Hill, K. B. & c. who, in consequence of his distinguished services in the Peninsula, is elevated to the Peerage. When the re- spective candidates had taken their places 011 the hust- ings, Ihe usual oaths had been administered., and the acts against bribery and corruption, & c. read, Sir JOHN HILL, Bart, rose, ar. d in a short address proposed Richard Lyster, Esq. with whom, the Baronet said, the electors are so well acquainted as to make it unnecessary for me to say any tiling maVe, than tn congratulate them upon his coming forward, and to nominate him as the most proper person to represent them in Parliament. Mr. BECK then rose, and spoke in nearly Ihe follow- ing words: Mr. Mayor, and uenttemen,— It is with great pleasure I rise to second Ihe nomination of Col. Lyster to represent this Borough in Parliament, than whom, I know of none more capable to make us an honest and an independent member— To the family of Col. Lyster, ( who joined most cordially with the late Sir William Pullenev) 11 very great proportion of the voters now present arc indebted for their Burgess- ship, and who will, I have no doubt, shew him gratitude upon this occasion. As to success, Gentlemen, I will not for one moment doubt it :— but before I conclude, allow me to make mv individual acknowledgment to Ihe Magistrates, to the Candidates, to the Agents, and all of you, Gentlemen, for that degree of Peace aud good Humour, which has lately, and I trust will continue to prevail, in llie town. Mr LYSTER then addressed the meeting: Gentlemen,— It is scarcely necessary for me to say I am here at the solicitation of a numerous and most respectable pait of the Trade of this Town ; and, so'called upon, who is there that would not have answered t he call? Had I not done so, independent of all other considerations, I should have lost some of the happiest moments of my existence. The warmth of feeling, and lliefriendship which has been shewn me by the Trading Interest, has afforded me pleasure be- yond my power to express. Gentfenien, on occasions like the present, it is customary for the Candidate lo make some declaration of the line of conduct which he means to pursue, if, honoured by your suffrages, he should be returned to Parliament — Here, I have only one pledge to give, one promise only to make. Gentlemen, whenever a measure is before Parliament, aud you think it of sufficient Importance lo instruct me in your sentiments by the voice of a Town Meeting, to your de- cisions 1 will adhere— your vote shall be mine. Such, Gentlemen, is my pledge. A few words, Gentlemen, and I will not claim your attention longer. It has been mv particular care during my Canvass, thai 110 act of mine should rend asunder those bonds liy which Society is kept together— nothing to break that Union so necessary to 11s all : in 110 Case have ! solicited a Vote when I have understood the Voter to be in the employment of Mr Beiiyon. When the acclamations of Mr. Lystfer's friends had subsided, Mr. BAGE rose, and proposed Mr, Benyon in the following words: Mr. Mayor, arid Gentlemen, I had tbe honour on a former occasion of recommending a gentleman lo your choice, aud I now rise lo repeat that recommendation. He was then unsuccessful, and yon are all aware of the single circumstance Hint rendered him unsuccessful— his opponent was General Sir Row land Mill, whose name and character resutmded through all Europe. Though it was then foreseen, aud strongly urged, that lo elect Sir Rowland Hill was, in point ot fact, to deprive yourselves of a Representative, because his military avo- cations, and the probability of his subsequent elevation, forbad the expectation of his ever taking his seal, yet, such was the magic of his name, such the warmth of feel- ing, such the zeal in his favour, that, like a mighty torrent pouring from Ihe hills, they were irresistible, and over- whelmed every thing Ihnt stood in their way. I a in ready lo allow thai these were honourable feelings, and did you credit. Yon did, indeed, swerve from what was strictly right, by electing a Nun- Representative instead of a Representative; but the judgment was hurried away hy a phrenzy of delight, that an opportunity should occur of manifesting your gratitude and admiration of a man so mightily distinguished for bravery, conduct, humanity, anft the great qualities that properly belong to Ihe charac- ter ofa soldier. No power of argument could oppose, wilh any probability of success, the enthusiastic energy of the popular feeling— and I admit that your choice would have required no apology, if the idea of his being your Repre- sentative had not been a mere illusion. Lord Hill, for that is now his title, has deserved and obtained an elevation lhat for ever deprives you of the hope that he may benefit his country by his services in the Commons House of Parliament; and we are now assembled to perform a solemn duty— to choose a proper person to fill the vacant seat. Gentlemen, I beg leave to congratulate you that, ou the present occasion, 110 splendid meteors present themselves to dazzle your eyes and perplex yuur understandings ; and I call on you solemnly, as a brother elector, to do your duty conscientiously, to judge dispassionately, and I o give your votes exactly as your judgment shall dictate. Thus, and thus only, will you perform your parls like men of honour and good citizens. Thus, and thus only, canyon transmit unimpaired to posterity the Constitution you inherit from yonr ancestors. You all recollect a severe contest for this borough, a few years ago, in which you resolutely determined not to be compelled, not lo be influenced hy threats; but, like men of spirit, you chose lo judge for yourselves, and lo exercise that privilege which is truly yonr own— of voting ns you thought right. You persevered— you succecded: success in such a cause w ill ever follow perseverance. You bad great difficulties to contend with ; you heard much of tyrannic landlords, of masters threatened if they refused to exercise compulsion against their workmen ; you encountered undue influence iu every possible shape; you experienced a total want of respect for your judgment, your feelings, your rights, and forthe true principles of the Constitution. The Constitution expressly says " Elections shall be free ;" hut, what a mockery of freedom— what an insult — to say, you are free to vote as you please, but that you shall be turned out of doors, you shall lose your land, you shall starve, yon shall be pursued, reviled, punished as criminals, unless you vote— not to please yourselves, hut iu obedience to the lofty commands of some olher person. This, Gentlemen, is a faithful picture of times that are past, and 1 have the plea- sure to believe they are times that never will return. The noble struggle in which your late Representative bore so distinguished a part, and whose effoits contributed to exalt the British character in the eyes of tbe w hole world, this great struggle has terminated not only in the downfall of the ambitious and sanguinary tyrant, but, what is of still more value, il has terminated in favour of freedom, not only in France, but, as w e fondly believe, all over Europe. We have witnessed the delightful spectacle of almost all the most despotic sovereigns of Europe assembled together, and nut only hy their solemn declarations, but by their magnanimous conduct, shewing lhat they respect the political rights of the people, and acknowledging that Governments exist but for their benefit Gentlemen, such glorious principles, descending to us from such high personages, cannot but be felt and approved in this kingdom, and not less within these walls ; and 1 am proud to see, 011 the present occasion, so many respectable gentlemen, who have neither vole nor residence within this borough, assembled, like the emperors, kings, and princes at Paris, to witness your proceedings ; 10 contemplate, encourage, and enjoy the happy effects of freedom operat- ing 011 honest and independent minds ; and, with that liberality that characterizes men of honour and education, to protect you in Ihe exercise of your acknowledged rights. Perhaps, however, it may be imagined that 1 liese gentle men, who, I am sure, will not be offended if 011 this occasion 1 call them aliens, attend for the kind and benevolent purpose of giving us their advice and guiding our feeble judgment. Should this be so, if we feel al a loss, we will gladly avail ourselves of their obliging assistance. But! am conlideut Ihey respect the Constitution, they respect your rights, they respect your character too much, and they have too high and delicate a sense of propriety to obtrude their advice unasked. But, Gentlemen, such is the happy change, that I am persuaded you have nothing to fear from threats or undue influence, or from officious advice ; aud, therefore, you will all and cach of you feel at perfect liberty to give your vofes exactly as you wish, and as you think will best contribute to support your independence ; and you will highly gratify those gentlemen, w hom curiosity alone has brought to the hustings, who wish lo he witnesses of the manly way in which freemen exercise their freedom, and who will esteem, and respect, and applaud you in proportion lo your zeal in favour of what we all acknowledge to be tbe dearest birth- right of a Briton. " O Liberty, tlion choicest treasure, " Seal of virtue, source of pleasure, " Life without thee knows no blessing." Gentlemen, 1 will not occupy more of your lime, but conclude hy proposing Mr. Benyon, in whose favour it would be superfluous to say one word, as he lives amougst us, and is personally known to every one of you. Mr. THOMAS COOKE, jun. seconded the nomination of Mr. Benyon, and spoke as follows : Mr. Mat/ or, It may be considered presumptuous in me tn obtrude myself on Ihe attention ofsueh a numerous and respectable assembly, and more particularly so oil so momentous an occasion us that of electing a fit and proper person as our Representative in Parliament. But, Sir, it is Ihe privilege of Englishmen lo give utterance to their sentiments; Ihe freedom of discussion is their undoubted and undisputed right.— I trust, Sir— I am sure, that you will recognize Ihis principle of our Constitution, and allow each individual, who may speak on the present occasion, a calm and patient hearing. Sir, theConstifution of our Country, the admira- tion of Ibe world, has vested in the resident freemen aud burgesses of Shrewsbury, tbe right of choosing their own Representatives iu, the Commons Houseof Parliament. It is, Sir, for the cxet- cise of 1 his right, that ive are now assem- bled ; and the conscientious discharge of it is a duty that, as good and loyal subjects, We owe to the best iuteiesia of our country. J We must all admit flint the representative system is th- ereat bulwark of English Liberty, and the best safeguard u, the dignity of the British throne. It is tl, c recognition of this great, tins grand, and vital principle of our Constitu- tion, to which 1 call the attention of my brother electors • aud I trust that each, and every one, will lay his hand upon Ins heart, and vole purely according to the diclates of bis conscience; or, 111 other words, I would say. with our immortal Nelson, " England expects everv man to do his duty." Gentlemen, every sinister and selfish principle should he discarded; all private interests and considerations should be laid aside ; and the best inteiests of the community, and the public weal, should alone be our object— The candi- date who has just been proposed for your" acceptance is, | n every respect, qualified for Ihe important delegation cf vonr best interests in the House of Commons'; he is Ihe friend of peace, the determined enemy of corruption, Ihe advocate of parliamentary reform, Ihe friend of humanity, and decidedly opposed to the revival of the sieve trade and the continuation of military torture: In short, his political principles are in perfect unison wilh those, of our much respected Member Mr. Bennett. Such a man is the candidate proposed to von. But Gentlemen, does he possess no other qualification ? Is he' not our townsman? Boj- n and educated at m is there not a correspondent feeling and local atlaebme'n! > Is he not a tradesman ?— Yes, to his honour be it named, lie is a tradesman. To whom do we owe the increasing trade and population of our towu ? Look at our suburbs— what were they leu or fifteen years ago— what are Ihey now ' ' Is it not to Ihe perseverance, the spirit, and entcrprize of Mr. Benyon that we principally owe the extension of our bound- aries, and the rising consequence of our town?— It is; nor opponents well know it, and dare not deny it. Thus much for the public character of our candidate: what are his domestic vtitues? Are not his morals unimpeachable1 View him in the relative connection of father, brother, friend, and master— will calumny dare lo point the shaft? Is he backward in supporting institutions which have for their object the comfort and welfare of the labouring com- munity.?— No ! Gentlemen, to such a character you wi- 1 scarcely suppose objection can attach ; but such is the fact • he is opposed ;— for what ? Because he dares to be inde- pendent; because he dares fo nppe. il lo, mid canvas., tleo spirit and independence of theborofigh He is opposed bv whom ? — By a mighty phalanx— an alarming host— fr0pi Hie peer to t he'squire, from the agent to the groom, fforn the reverend vicar to the parish clerk, from the right wor- shipful to the tipstaff, from the hamster to the ha liff, from the general lo the non- commissioned officer, from tbo doctor of medicine to the compounder of drugs : formidable enemies, truly! It is to this overbearing and preponderating mass of influence we arc opposed ; with this we have to contend. Gentlemen, tbe question with this combination is not who shall be the man ? but— who shall return him ? On a recent occasion, they were fortunate in their selection, and Ihey succeeded iu returning as our Representative a niosS deservedly distinguished character, but who, for reasons we ali know, never look his seat The consequence has been that our borough has been deprived of that share of influ- ence in matters of slate to which by llie laws of uui- country it was entitled. Gentlemen, in the present state of affairs, when commercial regulations are ou the tnp'n with foreign powers— when measures are adopting lo regulate Ibe stan- dard of grain, and Ihe poor man's loaf— at such a lime it is niosi essential that we contribute to the stock ot info, ela- tion of Ihe House of Commons, by the delegation of n, ea well acquainted with these subjects:— such a mar* .. m ceive Mr Betiyon to be, nnd, therefore, most heartily secoi d the nomination you have just heard Mr. BENYOW then addressed the meeting 1 Gentlemen,— In again offering myself to your choice, I bp ™ - to stale, that the first object 1 hate in view, and flic first wish of my heart is, to rescue the borough to which I belong from a miserable state of bondage ; to enable you to assert yonr rights as men, and as freemen, to your share in the haftpy Constitution under which we live; to maintain your chartered privileges; in short, to join yon iu waging eternal war against those who would bind your hands aud feet in adamantine chains, anil then, with proud humility and insulting mockery, request the honour of your free ani independent votes. My Fellow Townsmen, yon know, you feel that tbis picture is not overcharged ; shall we Ihen, at the verv moment when we are congratulating each olher wil h heart- fell joy on the recent glorious events, which have burst asunder, as if by magic, the galling hoods of tyranny, and given freedom, happiness. and peace to so large a portion of Europe— shall we, whilst the love of liberty glows wnrmlv in our hearts, endure in our own persons fhe hard, the humiliating, the soul- debasing shackles of slavery ? Shall we not rather rally round Hie standard of indepcndencerand cry, with one united and determined voice, " The Election of our Representatives shall be free ?" Allow me to say a few words of myself, my pretensions, and my motives. I hold that freedom is the most v >; wnM* 5— ~ gift ofGod toman: not all the wealth, not all the honours thai an earthly being could bestow, are half so dear to me as independence ; and, if 1 know mvown heart, that inde- pendence which 1 enjoy, and which I prize above every earthly good, 1 would, if opportunity offered, shed my blood to cxlend te all mankind. These arc Ihe motives by which 1 am actuated; and it if most satisfactory to me to perceive, that Ihey have not been misunderstood. The expressions of good- will wilh which I was every where greeted on my canvass were gratifying in ihe highest degree, and are indelibly fixed in my memory. The cause indeed was your own; but your reception of me 1 cannot but feel as a distinguished personal compliment— it deserves my t hanks; it claims mv eternal gratitude. And, Genlle- nien, it remains only to assure yitu that, in the event of my election, I shall endeavour to discharge my duty. 1 have nothing to hope from any man, or any set of men. I shall strenuously exert mysclfto contribute to your prosperity— lo maintain your liberty aud Ibe liberty of mv country; and I shall have nothing to fear w hilst I have the happiness to retain the good opinion of my fellow- townsmen. The speeches were followed by the loud and repeated huzzas of the friends of each party ; and when silence had h? en obtained, a shew of hands was culled for, which was declared lo be in favour of Mr. Benyon ; Sir John Hill then demanded a poll 011 behalf of Mr. Lyster, which commenced, afler the usual arrange- ments, by tallies of five.— Counsel for Mr. Lyster, Mr. Dauncey— for Mr. Benyon, Mr. Williams, of Manches- ter.— The following are the numbers already polled : ist Day. 2il Day 3il Day.

A11 old correspondent, who has observed Ihe proceed- ings of the present contest, and was present at thn Guildhall on Saturday last, has favoured lis with th ® following quotation from Di. JONNSON, which he> thinks not an inapplicable address to his fellow- towns* men.— The word nation within a bracket to be altered to town— and Ihe word kingdom ditto to place, " To instigate the populace with rage lieyond the provocation, is to suspend public happiness, if not to destroy it. He is 110 lover of his country, that unnecessarily disturbs its peace. * » * » » * it is surely not too much to expect, that Ihe [ tiationj will recover from its delusion, and unite in a general abhorrence of those who, by deceiving the credulous with fictitious mischiefs, overbearing the weak by audacity of falsehood, by appealing to the judgment of ignorance, and flattering the vanity of meanness, bv slandering honesty and insulting dignity, have gathered round Ihem whatever Ihe [ kingdom] can supply of base, and gross, and profligate ; and raised by merit tn this bad eminence, aircgate to themselves the name of PATRIOTS." In a state of civilized soiiety, every individual must submit to certain restrainls and regulations for the general welfare of the whole; and, whatsofeverTheorists may assert to the contrary, lhat country has attained the acme of ratioml liberty, wheie the Laws are equally administered to all ranks, Property secured, and a Free Press and liberty of colloquial discussion firmly esta- blished. And if there is a nation in Europe which can justly boast the possession of these invaluable privileges, may not Englishmen proudly claim that nation as their natal soil ? Is it not then incumbent on us, to guard wilh exquisite jealousy these substantial blessings, which not only preserved Great Britain amidst the wreck of empires, but have exalted her lo a pitch of glory per- haps unequalled in the annals of any nation ancient or modern ? Shall any specious pretences of reform tempt us to hazard that constitution, which was formerly tho- envy, but is now t| ie pal tern of our great political rival, France? Forbid it. Justice!— May the good genius of Old England ever preserve 11s from so dire a risque, pregnant with unheard of evil! No: let us support those Statesmen, who, without any arrogant pretensions to superior talent, have, by the wisdom and firmness of their measures, averted the greatest danger their coun- try was ever threatened with; ;>,: vl who have, under Providence, restore 1 Peaye to a leering World. r \ Tuesday se'nnight,' John Kynaston Powell, Esq.

On Friday, a most melancholy and deplorable acci- dent occurred in Ihe vicinity of Bromyard. As Lieut. Stewart, ofthe Hereford Militia, was proceeding from thence to Worcester, in a curricle, the horses took fright near Brockhampton, at a Hock of pigeons which passed close to them, and set off at full speed. Disregarding the advice ofthe servant who drove, Lieut. Stewart inmped out of the carriage, and the consequent shock produced a concussion of the brain ; In; was taken to Bromyard, and medical assistance immediately procured, but he continued insensible, and expired about eleven o'clock on Sunday night.

Some young Ladies at Clapham, impressed with the accounts of the unparalleled sufferings on the Continent, and feeling for the forlorn situation of numberless children who have been deprived of their parents, formed themselves into a Commitlee, and called on the female inhabitants in the parish lo solicit their assist- ance in raising a fund for the relief of these helpless innocents. The call was not made iu vain, for through the liberality of all classes, not excepting servants, who contributed largely, the sum of £ 219. ISs.

HOUSE OF COMMONS— MONDAY, MAY 16. ELECTION EXPENSE BILL. On the question being put on the report of this Bill, Mr. T. OCKHART expressed his opposition to the measure, on the Itrnund that the Act of George II and the Common Law, es already existing, were sufficient to answer the end pioposed Soeh a Bill as this would prevent people, unless in opulent circumstances, from exercising in many cases their elective franchise. It was carrying our notions of purity to too great all extent , tn prevent even the friendly assistance of a cauiaee. It would he in favour onlv of candidates of a particular de. scription, and not of those who were best qualified from ac- quaintance and Connexion with their Constituents. The bene- fits were not equal to the injury it would produce. It would be better to inquire into the state of the Boroughs, and, as they would soon have more leisure for domestic arrangements, applv some more general and efficient remedy. The Bill would occasion more expense by rendering it necessary to resort to indirect means The principle of the Bill was in- vidious and harsh, and would render elections contrary to thfir old English character, dull, miserable things. The hustings would be deserted, and those candidates only would succeed w ho wished to get tbe Boroughs into their own hands. Me concluded bv moving, as an amendment, that the report be received this dav six months.— Mr. DOUGLAS defended the principle of the Bill, and contended, with respect to any hardship on the electors, that it was as great a hardship on the candidates to be obliged to submit to so much expense. The Treating Act bore as hard on the resident voters, as this would do on the non- resident.— Lord MLT. TON opposed the Bill chicflv on lhe ground of the word ' County' having been introduced into it, and was of opinion, that this amendment must have been a sly and insinuating design of getting rid of the Bill altogether, on the part of the member who proposed it. The voters for counties were in a very different situation from that of non- resident votets for boroughs, as they resided 011 the spot to which their elective franchise was attached, whereas non- resident voters had an interest in residing at a distance from the place where their right lay, and in this balance of interest might have a choice of resigning either the one or the other. Comity electors often resided thirty or forty miles, and sometimes even sixty or seventy, as in the counly which he represented, from the place of voting and it would be extremely haul to put the labourer arid manu- facturer to the expense of conveying himself, besides loss of time. It would in fact be completely depriving many of them of their right entirely.— Mr. LOCKHART said, the noble Lord would not have applied the expressions he had used to the amendment he ( Mr. L.) had introduced, had be been present when he moved it. His reason for so doing, as he had stated at the time, was to give an opportunity for a more full dis. cussion, and to make the law as perfect as possible. He dis- claimed all intention of getting quit of the Bill in this way. The legality of paying the expenses of electors, was sanction- ed bv the construction of the Judges in several cases — Mr. W. WYNN contended, that the principle of restricting the exercise of the elective franchise was not new. Even thc elected was obliged to have particular qualifications. The words of the Statute of William he considered decisive, though sometimes departed from by Committees of the House. He thought the most effectual mode of preventing abuse would he, to open the poll in each hundred, and would have brought in a Bill to that effect, if be were not prevented by Ibe obvious disinclination of the House 011 the subject.— Mr. Rost had no objection to extending the provisions of tlie B II to counties.— Mr. LASCFLLES was adverse to the Bill in its original form, and thought that holding the poll in each hundred would expose the election to veiy injurious impedi- ments.— Sir J NEWPORT was for introducing a clause to oblige 1 lie elected to declare upon oath, that he had not, by himself or any agent, niven meat, drink, or money, to any elector, nor would dist barge auy bills of that description that might be sent in 10 him. The gallery was then cleared of strangers, and the House divided: on the division there appeared— for receiving the Report 62, against it 86— Majority 24. The Bill was there- fore lost. The House having gone into a Committee of Supply, voted various sums for the miscellaneous services in Ireland. CORN TRADE BILL. The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER brought in a Bill, founded on the first resolution of the report of the Committee » n the Corn Laws, for the free exportation of corn, and moved tbat it should be read a first time.— Mr. Ross declared his determination to resist this Bill, the operation of which be considered would be most injurious to the country.— Mr. COKE, of Norfolk, said, he had read a printed speech of tho Right Hon. Gentleman, ( Mr Rose,) which he considered rather mischievous, and a little seditious. ( A laugh). It was asserted by the Right Hon. Gentleman in that speech, lhat ; Mr. Pitt was with great difficulty induced to agree to the measure respecting the importation of corn, in the year 1804 ; but he ( Mr, Coke) could state from his own knowledge, and appealed to the recollection of others as to the fact, that Mr. Pitt had entered into that measure with the greatest sincerity and zeal. When he ( Mr. C.) who had uniformly opposed Mr. Pitt, except on lhat occasion, spoke in favour of the candour and character of that minister he was entitled to a considerable share of credit. Indeed he could hardly suppose it possible that the Right Hon. Gentleman, when he tinted that Mr. Pitt agreed to the measure with reluctance, did not know that the fact was otherwise. ( Older, order.) Me repeated that Mr. Pitt agreed to the protecting price wilh tbe most hearty zeal, and appealed to tbe Chancellor of tbe Exchequer for Ireland at the time, whom he saw in his place a few minutes before. Tlie only question in the case before the House, was what the protecting price should be. Me ( Mr. C.) was not favourable to protecting prices, which would support high rents. ( Hear, hear!) High rents he Considered iniurines lo the landlord and the tenant. He thought a- very effectual protection would be given by grant- ing teases, in which case capital would be so laid out on land, as to make its produce considerably greater. ( Hear, hear!/ The House had heard on a former occasion, the evidence of a gentleman that the land in Ireland would double its produce by proper cultivation. He ( Mr. C.) from his observation had no doubt that the land in England, if capital were sufficiently laid out upon it, would also double its present produce. Tbe abundance of produce would, in many instances, as in the last harvest, compensate the grower lor the reduction of price. Thirty shillings, for instance, would, in such a case, be cquat to tbe price of forty shillings at another time, when the produce was less to the grower. He next read a passage from the published speech of Mr. Rose, complaining " that alter the poor had borne the pressure of tbe war, they were now turned upon and exposed to want and misery bv the intended change in the corn laws." Surely the Right Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Rose) runst have said this, knowing it could not be so. Did the Right Hon. Gentleman mean to curry favour with the manufacturers >. Did he not well know that the taxes imposed during the war, rendered it impossible that the poor could have bread atthesame price as before? fHear, hear!) The attack of the Right Hon. Gentleman on the landholders was su< h as he ( Mr. C.) and some of his Hon Friends thought required explanation. He disclaimed being such a land- holder as the Right Hon. Gentleman described, and charac- terised his specch a mischievous and seditious pamphlet. Mr. ROSE repelled wilh some warmth the imputation of his having made a statement to the House, knowing it not to be line. Au imputation so offensive he tluew back in the teeth of the hou. gentleman. He did say that though Mr. Pitt was willing to agree to so high a piice as ninety- one shillings, yet it was with great reluctance he was induced to accede to so high a piice as ninety- four. Neither the great wealth or ex- tensive estates of the bon. gentleman should prevent him ( Mr. R.) ftom replying to him a* he deserved. Heconfi, deutly appealed to both their lives, whether he was more likely to he factious or seditious than the hon. gentleman. It wa6ever Ins wish to give every fair protection to the grower, whose interest he conceived ultimately that of tbe consumer. ( lb- nr. hear !) He wished for a complete inquiry, w hich he denied to have been made by the committee, and complained of tbe attempt on the part of the landholders, to raise the price fiom eighty shillings, which was recommended by the committee, to eighty- four shillings — Mr. CoKE in explanation, called lo the mind of the right hon. Gentleman, that he had yet expressed no05union as to the price recotiunendcd by the committee.— Mr. D. GIDDY began to enter into the princi- ples of exjiort and import, as relating to the trade in corn, and illustrated his argument by referring to a variety of articles, for which it was not well to be dependent on other nations. This country would be obliged to consume corn at a high price, or submit to be dependent lor an adequate supply on loreign countries. This would be a great evil, and even the other alternative was ftaught with disadvantage, but it was the less of the two. The point the most difficult to settle, was the price at which importation should be allowed to take place ; he was, however, rather inclined to support thc scale proposed hy the tight hon. gentleman ( Mr. Httskis- » on). The measure was not calculated to make grain cheap, but to fix it at a steady pricc. Nothing would make corn cheap, in this country, but such a change of things as wuuld deitrov all we had to value, and then the wretched people would be unable to purchase food, however low the price.— Mr. ELLISON sairl a few words, which were inaudible, and the bill was read a first time, and ordered to be read a second time on Wednesday, and to be printed. Mr. HUSKISSON then moved the further consideration of the Report of the Resolutions on the Corn Laws.— Lord A. HAMILTON said, he would take the sense of the House on Ibe first resolution. If the proposed measure would reduce the price of corn to the consumer, he would support it, but the plan was framed with reference to the interest of tbe agriculturist, to the exclusion of equally important interests. The Noble Lord argued against the measure, both in its detail and general spirit, and concluded by moving, that " the report be further considered this day three mouths." — Sir G. CLARK admitted tbat it was desirable to secure an adequate supply of corn of British growth, but he questioned the possibility of doing this without sacrificing other and equally important interests. Our markets mint always principally depend on the home supply ; he thought 80s. per quarter about the price which would compensate the price of tbe grower. The Hon. Baronet concluded by wishing to go t<> the consideration of the report.— Mr. WESTERN opposed the present scheme of importation. If grain was to be im- ported, and to be kept at 80s. per quarter, the importation piice ought to be 100s. Importation would not only be injurious to agriculture, bnt would prevent a regular and sufficient supply of grain. The Hon. Gentleman quoted Dr. A. Smith in support of his doctrines, and concluded by defending the character of the landed interest.— Mr. ROSE defended the arguments he had formerly adduced, and said, he had always maintained the amity of interest between the grower and consumer. He wished to protect the interest of the former, but he was also desirous of providing a regular and ample supply of grain without pressing on the latter.— Mr. HORNER, in a speech of great length, took a view of the question as it affected onr domestic policy and foreign relations. He considered the measure as particularly ill- timed, from the present unsettled state of all onr commercial relations. If it was the object to prevent the importation of corn entirely, such a measure would certainly be Ihe most effectual that the House could possibly adopt. He advocated the freedom of trade, and particularly in the important articles of the necessaries of life. Thc object of the measure was clearly to keep up or raise the price of corn, but it was for the House maturely to consider whether this would not operate against our manufactures. He could not believe that the agriculture of the country was in tbat ruinous state some gentlemen represented, and contended that high prices were only a tem| ioraiy benefit, as the price of labour and subsistence, and particularly in England the poor rates, would rise in proportion, and produce an equal drawback to the landholder. He conjured the House to pause before proceeding in a measure of such importance, and to wait at least till we could form a more certain estimate of what would be the tesult ofthe late events in Europe. He viewed the subject also as having a reference to the state of our correiicy ; and hoped the House would do nothing decisive, at least for this session. Mr. BRAND agreed with the general principles advocated by his Learned and Hon. Friend, but differed with him very much in their application. He did not think as to the object ofthe measure, there could be much difference of opinion. With respect to the rates of importation, there was more room for difference of opinion. It was his opinion, that from tbat very unsettled state of Europe at present, referred to by his Hon. Friend, they ought this session to adopt tbe mea- sure. Our agriculture be contended wanted this assistance. The farmer could not grow wheat for less than 8s. 6d. a bushel. It was to be recollected tbat it was the land that maintained the poor of the country, and the clergy, and the churches, and roads. He would not admit, however, that the measure could prove at all injurious to our manufactures. The general interest of tbe country at large requited it.— Mr. ABERCROMBY contended that tbe high price of corn must ultimately raise the price of labour in an equal proportion; the measure must therefore produce an unfavourable effect on our manufacture's, when brought in competition with those of other countries. The measure had also a tendency to check the population of the country, and thus strike at the ery root and sinews of our strength. The manufactures of the country were the best excitement to the growth of corn, and there never, he thought, could be a want of encourage- ment to agriculture so long as we retained at home our manufacturing population. The price of agricultural produce had got so high, that it could be considered only as artificial, arising from the means tbe enemy had used to shut us out of the Continent, and any attempt to continue this unnatural price would be a great want of policy. If they were ever to revert to their money payments, it would be hard to say what the effect of such a law would be.—> Mr. HUSKISSON gave great credit to the speech of the Learned and Hon. Gentle man, ( Mr. Horner) but he could not admit all he had said of a fl ee trade. The fact was, that the practice of this country had uniformly been a different policy. We had always acted on the principle of giving protection by bounties and drawbacks, and therefore it was quite idle to argue on the abstract and separate principle of a free trade. To allow the foreign grower to cotne in competition with our own, would be to deny the agriculturists that protection we gave to others. He wished us to make ourselves independent of the Continent for our supply, and this was only tn be done by continuing tbat encouragement which had lately proved so favourable to our agricultural improvement. It was impossible, if we admitted foreign corn without duty, that our agriculture could flourish Mr. MARRYArr was against the measure. He contended that there had been a general fall in every thing, and why should the landed proprietor, more than others, be exempted from this necessary consequence of the state of Europe. He was for leaving the importation as free as the exportation.— Mr. FOSTER intimated his intention to move, that the Report should be recommitted, in order that he might have au opportunity of submitting a motion, the object of which would be, to prohibit the importation of corn altogether, up to its attaining a certain price, which, he thought would produce the same effect as the scale of duties intended to be imposed. Sir H. PARNELL said a few words in reply; after which tbe House divided on Lord A. Hamilton's amendment, that the resolution should be brought up that day three months. On a division the numbers were— for the amendment 27, against it 144— Majority 117. TUESDAY, MAY 17. A number of Petitions were presented from various quarters against the proposed alteration in the Corn Laws : and seve- ral petitions from different bodies of mechanics in London and Westminster, against the repeal ofthe Apprentice Laws: which were all ordered to lie 011 the table. A Bill to extend the 43d of Ihe King, relative to County Bridges to Hundreds, was read a first time.— The Local Poor Bill was read a third time and passed. Mr. CREEVEY'S motion for the copy of a letter written by the Earl of Buckinghamshire, in which he had taken upon himself to advise a renewal, aud, in some instances, an augmentation, of tbe expiring pensions granted by the Company to Lords Wellesley, Buckinghamshire, & c. and in doing which he ( Mr. Creevey) thought Lord Buckinghamshire had acted be- yond his duty— which was, to take care that the funds of the Company should hot be wasted — was negatived by 62 against 23. CHILD- STEALING. Mr. W. SMITH rose to move for leave to bring in a Bill for the better preventing the ciitue of child- stealing. He could not conceive a much greater crime than this : yet, by our law, it was 110 crime; for a man conld not be punished for stealing the child of another, but only for stealing its clothes. He had heard, from professional men, that Judges have been obliged to charge Jinies, that unless they were convinced the child was taken for ihe purpose of stealing its clothes, they must acquit the prisoner. He stated the case of a child of a Gentleman now lesiding in Westminster, who was stripped, and left under one of the arches of Westminster Bridge while the tide was flowing, and in a day of extreme cold and snow. By mere accident, the chili'., who could not speak, crawled up the steps, and caught hold of the legs of a person, by whom it was restored to its pareots. This petson was con- victed of stealing the clothes ; but. he was sorry to say was pardoned. Children had heen also stolen for the infamous purposes of being sold again, by oeggars, to excite com- passion ; and by persons to be employed as chimney- sweepers. He then moved for leave to bring in a Bill to prevent more effectually the crime of child- stealing.— Mr. Serjeant ONSLOW seconded the motion.— Leave was then given to bring in the Bill, which was done; read a first, and or- dered to be read a second time 011 Thursday next. CATHOLICS. Sir J. C. HISPESLEY reminded the House that he had moved for a number of Documents respecting the Catholics, which he considered 33 n code of information on that subject. He still contended, tbat a settlement, as a seminary of education, under a professed Jesuit, had been made at Castle Browne, in Ireland, notwithstanding that many gentlemen doubled the existence of the sect. He read a tetter in proof of his as- sertion; in which the writer lamented that they had settled in Ireland fiom their known intentions, and the hold they have on the minds of Ibe Catholics. The Hon. Baronet then adverted to tbe meeting of the Jesuits in various parts of Ireland, and expressed his hopes that the Government were t alive to the evils which might result from these meetings : and also from another Meeting and Body of Men, that was the Catholic Boaid, who had appealed to the Cortes of Spain for protection agains' the decision of the accredited agent of tbe Catholic See; • That the declarations and professions of the Catholic Board had not proved more mischievous than they had done, was owing to the prudence of the Catholic Clergy, who had refused to lend themselves to the plans of ihe Board. With respect, to the letter lately received from R6me, its contents were no more than an acknowledgment of two regulations, which existed in every State; aud he was persuaded, unless Government looked narrowly tothe proceedings of the Catholic Board, they would, in the present temper of Ireland, be productive of much evil. He con- cluded by moving that tbe Extracts from the Instructions issued by Government to Gen. Sir G. Prevost, Governor of Upper Canada, in October, 1811, namely, paragraphs 42 and 43, and laid before the House in Julv, 1813, should be printed — Mr. BATHURST seconded the motion.— Sir H. PAR- NELI. said, it had been stated bv the hon. Baronet, that a sum of 30,0001, had been remitted from Rome to forward the re- establishment of the Jesuits in Ireland. He ( Sir H. P.) chanced to know all the particulars of this transaction. The object in contemplation, and to carry which into effect the sum in question tiad been transmitted, was tbe establishment ofa school for instructing Ecclesiastics; he had seen a pro- spectus of the. plan ; it did not confine the benefit of the establishment to any particular class ; and, on the whole, was a plan perfectly legal. He then proceeded to answer the several arguments of the last speaker, and derided the idea of any danger arising from the Jesuits at this time in Ireland. — After some observations by Mr, Peele, Sir J. Newport, & c. these papers, and many others, on the subject of the Jesuits, already before the House, were ordered to be printed. THE CORN LAWS. The House having resolved into a Committee, and the • second Resolution, for repealing the present duties and im- posing others, having been read, Mr. FOSTER rose and con- tended, that encouragement ought to be given to exporting corn from this country. It had been proved that this country conld be an exporting country ; for, fiom tbe year 1700 to 1765, this country had annually exported more corn than was i01 polled, and a balance of a considerable sum in cash had annually been brought into this country. This arose from the annual encouragement given to the farmer. It ought now to be the study ofthe House to consider what It ail been the encouragement given to the grower previous to that time, and to restore those regulations which, previous to 1765, had kept us independent of the Continent. Previous to that time, tbe sum at which import had been allowed was £ 1. I3s. 4d. to which was added a duty of 8s. raising the price at what import was allowed, in fact, to £ 3. Is. 4d. The right hon. gentleman tben proceeded to argue, that tbe import price now fixed should bear a proportion to that sum, upon a comparison of the different value of money in 1814 and in 1765. The right hon. gentleman then proceeded to make calculations of the average price of corn and value of money at different periods down to the present time, and from that comparison drew an inference, that the price established to meet foreign importation ought to be not less than £ 5 19s. If Ihis were done— if this encouragement were given to agriculture, we might again look forwaid to being an exporting country, and should no longer be dependent on the Continent for support. Another great evil would also be got rid of, that was, the continual fluctuation of prices, highly injurious to tbe faimer, which now existed, arising out of the system of importation. He then moved an amendment, that the duties on imported corn should cease and determine, except when wheat should be in our market at 100s. per quarter, barley at 36s. and oats at 33'.— Mr. VANSITTART had hoped, that when the hon. Bart. ( Sir H. Parnell) gave tip his Resolution, all difference of opinion would have ceased by the adoption of that of his hon. friend ( Mr. Huskisson.) Instead of the scale being too low, many thought it too high ; and in consequence of this difference of opinion it was his intention to move that the subject of the scale should be postponed till the next session of Parliament; without however preventing the adoption of the Resolutions generally.— Mr., P. GRANT contended, tbat from the experience they hail obtained from the operation of the corn laivs of Charles II. and of William, it was evident that the measures pi oposed to be adopted by these resolutions would be beneficial to the country. He object lo the gradu- ated scale, because it did not fix tbe price at which impor- tation was to cease. He contended that the price of corn did not affect the price of labour ; but that the interest of the labourer would be to have the price of corn a. steady as possible. He believed that with the liberty of a free export, and with the fixing of a home, price, agriculture would again flourish, and we should become an exporting country. He concluded by supporting the proposition of Mr. Foster.— Mr. F. LEWIS was of opinion, that by leaving this subject to itself, they would do much mote benefit to the country than by an untimely interference with it.— Mr. ROSE was of opinion that if Mr. Foster's amendment passed, 106s. would very soon be thc minimum price of com,— Mr. HUSKISSON de fended his Resolution ; but he by no means thought that it would keep foreign corn from sometimes coming iuto the home market. He was not averse to reconsidering this sub- ject at no very distant period ; but he thought that the time proposed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer was too long for so important a subject.— Mr. D. GIDDY suggested that 100s. as proposed by Mr. Foster, was considerably too high, and that it would be better fixed at 84s.— After some observations from Sir H. Parnell, Sir J. Newport, aud Mr. Western, the House divided— for Mr. Foster's Amendment 60— against it 81— majority 21 in favour of Mr. Huskisson'* graduated scale. The Resolutions were then agreed to, and the Report ordered to be received next day. A most material fiotice was given in the House on Thursday, by Mr. Pole Carew, of his intention to bring in a genera! Bill ( several local Bills having been applied for) to amend the 12th of Geo. II. c. 29, and thereby to equalize the County Rates throughout the kingdom, and give a power of appeal to any aggrieved parishes, a remedy which, under the present Act, they are not entitled to. The Clergy Residence bill was read a third time in the House of Lords on Monday, and passed. The Prince Regeut, it is said, has given up the idea of being present at Ihe Coronation of the French King, his presence being so much and so continually warud in this country. France,— The Paris papers continue to abound in Addresses and acts of adhesion to tbe new Government. Davoust and his army have accepted the new Constitution; and their language and professions on the occasion are as animated aud probably as sincere, as any we had previously perused. It would not be peihaps prudent to repose un- limited confidence in these and similar assurances; but it would evince a profound ignorance of the motives of human action, to consider them as vain and hollow professions. It cannot be doubted that the springs of high honour and mor- ality are considerably relaxed in Fi ance ; this relaxation has arisen from the frequent changes of the Government, and the consequent licentiousness. But the soldiers, under the most despotic Government, long after every other class have sunk into the most torpid indifference, retain a sense of honour and fidelity to their engagements; and we ate happy to perceive that the Bourbons employ every honourable art to gain the attachment of that body. They are, afterall, the most certain prop of the new authority ; and from their pro fessional habits of obedience, will be thc last to make any movement against the new Government. It is a singular fact, that amongst the various revolutions of rule that have oc- curred for 25 years in France, not one has been the sole act of the army ; that is, none has originated with them. They have been invariably tiie work of the Senate, the Council of Ancients, Convention, &. C. Therefore every friend to thc tranquillity of Europe, must lead with satisfaction tbat the military leadeis wish to appear prominent in supporting the legitimate order of things — To judge from the French papers, it might be supposed that every thing was proceeding with the utmost order and tranquillity iu that country. Aeoording to that authority, France presents only one universal scene of joy and harmony. Perhaps they are also tbe bo. t criteiia to form an opinion of the generabfeeling. The private accounts take only a partial view. The uninformed stranger, whose circle of observation is confined lo coffee- bouses, and other haunts of the idle and dissolute, judges most erroneously of the public feeling, when he takes his standard of judgment from the heedless brawlers of such places. Political squibs, or pamphlets— another source of his information, are guides equally fallacious ; and thai which seems to terrify tbe in- genious correspondents, whose contributions grace tbe co- lumns of our contemporaries, does not excite any such alarm- ing sensations in our mind. The French are naturally vehement in t^ eir language and gesture ; but this does not imply that they feel more intensely, or act more promptly than other nations. They, of couse express at this moment more tban ordinary vivacity , but every one must have remarked with what quiet the counter- revolution has been effected. There is not recorded a single instance where blood has been shed in consequence of a collision of sentiment or opinion. We therefore presume that the public mind, is by no means so heated as the private accounts represent; and that the writers, in pretending to describe the national cha- racter, send us onlv the picture of the noisy scenes of a coffee- house, or tbe translated nonsense of a superficial and declamatory pamphleteer.— Bonaparte's great object was to make France a milUary nation. It most be the policy of Louis XV1IL to reverse a system which experience has demonstrat- ed to be incompatible with the peace of Europe. No military nation ought to exist, because it cannot exist without preying pon its neighbours, and we trust that the main object of the grand alliance will be to prevent tbe formation of such a mischief in anv part of the Continent. Cardinal Maury has received orders to quit the Archiepiscopal Palace. It is generally known to have been a part of Bona- parte's policy, to reward his favourites by matrimonial alliances with yoting ladies of fortune. It appears from several documents published in The Journal des Debals, that in 1810 he had sent Circulars to his Pre- fects of Departments on the Rhine, requiring thein to transmit lists of the young ladies of family in their districts, that they might be enrolled in the " class of heiresses." This list, or table, of which mention is made in the Circular, and respecting which the most profound secrecy is required by the local Aulhorities, is divided into eight columns :— In the first, the name of every Lady is required to be inserted; second, their age; third, the name of their parents; fourth, their former possessions and present estate; fifth, their fortunes; sixth, the supposed fortune of each of their daughters, and their expectancies ; seventh, the nature and locality of their properly; the eighth and last column shall be under the head of " Observations." This column was to contain an account of the " personal beauties or deformities, the temper, talents, accomplishments, conduct, and religion of. the young Ladies," who were Ihe victims of this tyrannical order. Thus it was not sufficient for the fiend lo deprive parents of all their sons capable of bearing arms, he was determined also to bereave them of their daugh- ters, and to dispose of Ihem at his pleasure, without their consent, or the approbation of their family. The executors of the late Mr. Williams have pai. 1 £ 6000 for Ihe probate slamp for his will, which is Ihe highest duty chargeable by Act of Parliament— a circumstance that has but seldom occurred, and proves bis personal properly to be above £ 500,000, exclusive of freehold, which pays no duty. On enclosing a considerable extent of land from the sea, on the coast of Brittany, it has recently been discovered, that a large forest, in an early age, bad grown aloug it, a great number of trees of large dimensions, consisting of ash, beech, and birch, having been dug up in an extent of seven leagues. The timber, when first raised out of the earth, is extremely soft, but, 011 being exposed to the air, soon grows hard enough to be convertible to various uses. Extnoor, in Devonshire, is now inelosing; it con- sists of 20,000 acres, and the commons surrounding it of 22,000 more : It is the property of the Crown, and the former part being a soil better calculated for the growth of timber than corn, is to be planted entirely with forest trees, and firs, the ensuing autumn. A British seaman, lately returned from Francs, received on Monday last £ 65 for his pay. In proceed- ing to the tap- house in Plymouth Dock- yard, wilh his money inclosed in a bundle, he dropped it without immediately discovering his loss. When he missed it, he sallied forth in search of it; after some inquiries lie fortunately met J. I'rout, a labourer in the yard, who had found the bundle, and gladly returned it, Jack, no less generous than the other was honest, instantly proposed to Prout to accept half, then £ 20, which be magnanimously refused. Ten pounds, next five, were tendered, but with a similar result. At length Jack, determined that this benefactor should have some token of his gratitude, forced a £ 2 note into Proofs pocket. Traits of character, like these, would reflect honour uu any class of society. BANKRITPIS, MAY 14. William Rcale, Bishop's Hatfield. Herts, inuholder, May 21,28, June 25, a*.

The following letter contains some very interesting particulars relative to Bonaparte's conduct 011 tbe day pre- ceding his embarkation at Frejits :—" The Russians, Prus- sians, Austrian and English Commissioners, and Capt. Usher, of the Undaunted frigate, appoin'ed to convey him to the Elba, dined with him on the sbove day, ( the 27th ult.) On the introduction of Captain Usher, he soid, that though for- merly our enemy, he was now as sincerely oar friend, and that we were a great nation. Oil Capt. Usher observing, that he feared he could but ill accommodate him ; Bonaparte said, a British man of war was a palace. At dinner the subject was chiefly naval, of which he appeared to be a perfect master. On some surprise being expressed how be could make himself so perfect a master of the miuutise of tlie navy, when he had such great, and so many other affairs of higher importance to command his attention, he bowed aud felt the compliment,; but said, that in three years his plans would have heen complete, that he was about to build 20 sail of the line on the Elbe, and would have bad 2t) 0 sail of the line well manned, for that bis navy conscription fully answered bis expectutiuns. O11 ils being observed by Captain Usher lhat his naval consciipts did uot create much alarm, he seemed much surprised, adding, tbat our Ministers vvell knew the Toulon fleet was manned with them. He said, that his principal object in annexing Holland to France, was for the purpose of making good sailors by exercising them on tbe Znyderzee: aud turning round towards the Russian Commissioner, said, that he bad constructed a three- decker, then called the Ansterlit2. On his being a- ked what be thought of our expedition to Holland? be said, rather turning to the Austiia. o Commissioner, ' I wrote frotnVieuna before the expedition sailed, desiring them to be prepared for it.'— The conversation 111 general was highly } interesting. He looked remarkably well, talked with ail his accustomed authority. A French frigate was sent to wait upon bim, hut he preferred going in the English frigate. Lieutenant Hastings was sent with a French anil Austrian Commi- sioner to take posses- ion of the Island of Elba in his name.

The Emperor Alexander lately went to Ihe metropo- litan church at Paris, and afterwards visited its treasury, the keeper of which, 011 shewing him the crown of Charlemagne, observed, that several persons thought this crown had been brought from Aix- ia- Chapelle. I can solve that difficulty," said his Majesty oblig- ingly ; " the crown of Charlemagne, which was al Aix- la'Cliapelle, was brought to Vienna by a Canon of that place, and 1 now possess it." Many of our fashionables lately most eager lo visit Paris, have already returned home. They found it a scene of confusion, and every way uncomfortable. When Joseph Bonaparte fled from Spain his car- riage was stopped, which he abandoned. In the Imperial on the top of the carriage there was found an immense number of valuable Pictures, pillaged from the Churches and palaces of Madrid. They had been taken out of the frames, and the canvasses were all pressed together. They were sent to the Duchess of Wellington, and are now in London 5 but a catalogue of them has been sent to the Regency in Spain, that it may be ascertained to whom they belong, that they may be honestly restored to the right owners. During the past week several French boats arrived off Eastbourne, laden with divers articles of provisions, but an intimtation being given from an officiating officer of the Customs, that they would be seized if landed, the Frenchmen thought proper to weigh their anchors, aid proceed further on to the eastwaid, where they were permitted to land, and found a ready sale for their commodities.
