Lord Liverpool presented a message from the Prince Regent, intimating that his Royal Highness had di- rected that Thursday, the 7th of July, be observed as a. day of Solemn Thanksgiving} and on lite motion of the Noble Lord it was ordered, that, their Lordships do; attend in the House ou that day, in their robes, for the purpose of proceeding in procession totrt. Paul's. Eiis Lordship also presented the correspondence be- tween the Government of this Country and that of the United Provinces, relative to the Slave Trade. The Duke of Gloucester, after a few prefatory re- marks, presented a Petition signed by a very great number of individuals, inhabitants of London aud its vicinity, expressing their regret that no provision hall teen made in the late Treaty of peace for the imme- diate abolition of the Slave Trade; and praying the House to take such steps, as to its wisdom may seem meet, for effectuating that great aud desirable object. Petitions to a similar effect were presented by Earl Spencer, the Marquis of Lansdowne, the Dukes of Somerset and Sussex, Lord Holland, and Earl Stan- hope.— They were all ordered to lie on the table. The Order of the Day upon which their Lordships were summoned being read, Lord Grenville addressed the House at considerable length upon the subject of Hie Slave Trade, aud iu conclusion moved ftn Address to the Prince Regent, praying that copies he laid before the House of ail re- presentations made on the part of his Royal High- ness. t Government, during the late negotiations for peace, fur tire purpose of carving into effect tii « Unani- mous. A'sldress of that House respecting, the Abolition of the African Slave Trade, with. thti answers given there to; and extracts from llteilistructioss yiveti to the persons employed iu the negotiations, which related to the subject. The Earl of Liverpool objected - to- the motion, as an injudicious- and injalious interposition with re- jpjtct to a matter whicli was still in a state of iMteociation, or rescr'. mi for negoct- tiion at a future period. Lord Holland, the Marquis of Lansdowne, and Earl Grey, supported the motion. The Earls of Westmorland, Bathurst, and Selkirk, spoke against it. Lord Grenville replied at some ' eo^ th. After which • the House divided— Contents - - - 27 Not Contents - - 62 Majority for Ministers —£ 5 TUESDAY, JUNE28. The ceremony of the introduction of the Duke of Wellington' to the House took plats about three o'clock. A considerable number of Peers attended. The space before the throne was filled by the Mem- bers of the House of Commons, and the space below the bar filled with a crowd of stranger;. His Grace entered, at tended by the Duke of Norfolk, Earl Mar- shal, the Duke of Richmond, and Duke of Beaufort, preceded by Sir Isaac Heard, Lion King at Arms; and having delivered the writ to the Lord Chancel- lor, he- went to the table. This being his Grace's first appearance in the House since his elevation to the Peerage, the whole of his Patents were read iu their order, beginning with that of Baron Douro and Vis- count Talavera,— and proceeding through the whole — Earl of Wellington, Marquis of Douro, Marquis of Wellington, and Duke of Wellington. His Grace then took the usual oaths of allegiance and abjura- tion, and afterwards sat down with the attendant Dukes on the Ducal Bench. The Lord Chancellor then delivered to his Grace the unanimous thanks of the House. He adverted particularly to a remarkable circumstance', td which lie called the attention of al! who heard him,— a cir- cumstance which he believed was unprecedented in the history of this country,— thnt on the- first day on which bis Grace the Duke of Wellington appeared among their Lordships, he had produced titles in regular gradation to the whole of the Honours of the Peerage in the power of the Crown to bestow. He thought he should best discharge his duty by not pre- suming to attempt an enumeration of. his Grace's splendid actions; the final result of which had been incalculably beneficial to this country, and the whole civilized world; his Grace's great example having roused the other nations of Europe to fresh exertion:;, And enabled them at last to regain that independence which secured the safety of all by preventing the un- due preponderance of any one power. The Duke of Wellington said, he was really so over- come with the honours which had been conferred upon him, and the manner in which he had been received, that he could not give expression to what he felt. Considering the powerful support which he had received from the Prince Regent and the Govern- ment,— from the great exertions and abilities of hi,; gallant friends, the officers by whom he had been seconded, and the whole army,— aud from the re- peated unanimous thanks of both Houses of Parlia- ment, he could not but be sensible- that, whatever difficulties he bad to encounter, the means were ade- quate to the end, and he was afraid lest he shou ci not have deserved all tBe honours that had been conferred on him. He declared, however, that he should always be ready to serve his Sovereign and his country to the best of hi3 ability, in any way and in any capacity in which he might be called upon so to do. His Grace then retired with his attendants. The Royal assent was given by Commission to the Loan Bill, the Cape Wine Bill, the Goods Delivery Bill, and several private Bills. The Duke of Sussex presented several petitions from certain Catholics and Protestants of Ireland, against the Orange Societies. When steps were taken? to suppress other societies, these at least ought also to be suppressed; rind unless he shonld understand that it was the intention of Government to adopt some mea- sures for that purpose, he should, ou a future occasion, call their Lordships' attention to the subject of the petitions.— The petitions were ordered to lie on the table. Lord Grey presented a petition from the English Catholics, praying for relief from their disabilities. Following the course which had been adopted by a Noble Friend of his, with respect to the petitions of the Irsih Catholics, he did not mean to propose to their Lordships, in the course of this session, any mo- tion for the general measure of full relief, to which the petitioners were so well entitled. The Duke of Gloucester, Lord Grey, the Marquis of Lansdowne, Lord Holland, and Lord Stanhope, presented several petitions, each against the article in the Treaty referring to the Slave Trade.— Laid on the table. Lord Lonsdale moved an Address to the Prince Regent, thanking him for his gracious communication of the Treaty of Peace to the House, and assuring his Royal Highness of the approbation with which their Lordships regarded that Treaty. Lord De Dunstanville seconded the motion. Lord Grenville declared that he heartily concurred in the general tenour of the Treaty, and was ready to oiler his congratulations, not only to the Throne, but to the Country at large, ou the happy termination of the war. Lord Liverpool having made some observations on the general principles of the Treaty, and on the high character which Britain had attained on the Conti nent, by her exertions in the cause of Europe, the motion was put, aud carried unanimously. HOUSE OF COMMONS. FRIDAY, JUNE 24. Sir Thomas Picton, Lieutenant- General Sir William Stewart, Lieutenant- General Sir Henry Clinton, and Major- General Pringle, appearing iu their places in full regimentals, the Speaker addressed them severally aud collectively, to the following effect— " Lieutenant- General Sir William Stewart, I have the pleasing task assigned to me to thank you, in the name of your country, for a series of the most signal and splendid military services; and in the first place with respect to your gallant achievements in the battle of Vittoria.

Stewart, Sir Henry Clinton, and Major- General Pringle, severally retuiJ- ed thanks, and were loudly cheered by the House. Lord Castlereagh observed, that as " it must always gratify the House to see their heroes appear amot'a.- them, so he was sure that he wss only speaking tl"; sense of every Englishman when lie expressed the high gratification which was afforded by the manner in which the gratitude of the House and of the coun- try was always- conveyed to them from the Chair. He concluded by moving, that the Speaker be re- quested to enter ou the Journals his addresses, on that day, to Sir Thomas Picton, Sir William Stewart, Sir Henry Clinton, and Major- General Pringle; aud their answers thereto.— Ordered. A person from the Record Office- of the Court ef King's Bench brought up a copy of the Conviction of Lord Cochrane and the Hon. A. C. Johnstone, whicir Were ordered lo lie on the table, and to Le printed. Mr. Broadhead moved, that those papers should be taken into consideration on Friday next; tiiac Lord Cochrane should be brought up by the Mar- shal of the King's Bench, if he desired to attend iu his place; that the Speaker should issue his warrant for the same; that a copy of these orders should be sena- te Lord Cochrane; and that the Honourable A. C. Johnstone be desired to attend in his place ou th » same. day.— All these motions were agreed to una- nimously. Mr. Holmes said, that in consequence of his having been written to by Lord Cochrane for that purpose, he rose to move, that there be laid before the House a copy of the Report of the Indictment and Trial of Lord Cochrane, and aiso of the Affidavits made by him sub sequent to his conviction. After a debate of some length, the motion w: s negatived without a division. Mr. W. Wynne wished to know if it was intends., to make any particular vote of congratulation on h. s arrival in litis country to the Duke of Wellington. The Chancellor of the Exchequer said, that nothii." of that kind had been yet proposed. Mr. W. Wynne slated, that the Duke of Marlborough had been congratulated Members of that House; and he hoped the Right Hon. Gentleman would in a day or two submit u motion to that effect lo the House. Sir J. Newport presented a petition from the Ca- tholics and Protestants of Ireland, friends of peace, against all illegal assemblies, oaths, wearing ci badges, or going in procession of triumph fcr battles fought 120 j ears since. Nothing, he said, could le moic fatal to the peace of Ireland; and if the bait e ci Culloden was celebrated iu Edinburgh, lie cou. d net conceive how that city could te kept iu peace.—' 1 be Petition was ordered to lie on the table. The House went into a Committee of Supply; when various sums were voted for the prosecution and com- pletion of public works iu Ireland. On the motion of Lord Palmerston, the Army Estimates for the current year were taken into con wder'ti n. Recent events hid nrt^ e this task a- pleasai I one, ami lie had no doulit ( lie romm. iHii< " i, tions which he hiuFto make, in relation to theiiilc. i%. tions of his Majesty's Government, wou'( Toe d^ gfere*; perfectly satisfactory.

Up to | thc period of the Esti- mates, the " state of our " land forces vnes much" the same as that of the preceding year. Since the | te- J riod alluded t&, a considerable diminution had been • made in the necessary Spteudituro, mid . means sere- in contemplation to carry the reduction to as great aij extent as tlie safety and interest of the country would admit.

The Army Prize- money Bill ". vas read a third ' time • and passed. A Bill for the belter Preservation - of tire Peace in ; Ireland, by placing greater power in the hands of Magistrates, lo cheek the disposition to disturbance and outrage which had lately been manifested there, Was read a first time, and ordered to be read a second time ou Friday. Petitions were presented from several places, one, in particular, signed by 86,000 of the inhabitants of London and Westminster, expressing the regretofthe Petitioners that no effectual . ste[ rs had been taken in the recent Treaty for the Abolition of the Slave Trade. Lord Castlereagh stated, tlmt lie was authorised to communicate from his Royal Highness the Prince Re- gent, that Ills Royal Highness had appointed the 7th of July next as a day of General Thanksgiving upon the restoration of Peace. To add to the so'einnity on this occasion, his Royal Highness would Ifwself go in state to St. Paul's, and would order proper accommo- dations lo'be prepared for lite House.— His Lordship then moved an humble Address to tile Prince thank- ing him for his gracious communication, which was. coined; and aVj- tlist the House should attend his Royal Highness on the day mentioned, ainf that a Committee arrange the mode of doing to shou'd le apppointed. Lord Castlereagh then addressed the House on the subject of a vote of Thanks of the House te iiis Grace the Duke of Wellington. In calling Gentlemen's attention lo the late contest, its important events, and the glorious results to which i< had been brought— results chiefly a rising from the spleodid achienemeuts of tire, illustrious individual who was the subject of the present motion— he had to remind them of what had more the appearance of romance than reality. Never perhaps had a war been conducted with such undeviating success as had that partoftlie la$ e contest which had been conducted under the immediate su- periiitendance of tin; Noble Duke. Throughout the whole contest he had been always victorious, and at the end of it had been received with acclamations even in the enemy's capital. Another circumstance also ought ( o be attended to: instead of returning aunualh I o his friends during Ihe winter, our illustrious Hero had been in constant active employment. Like Marlborough, lie had frequently had the honour of receiving t he 1 hanks of his grateful country: that great man had received the thanks of Parliament six times, but the Duke o,' Wellington had received that distill guished honour twelve times. Under such circum- stances, no arguments from hin: would be rivecssary to induce the House to agree to the motion with which he should conclude, namely—" That the Thanks of this House l e given to Field Marshal his Grace the Duke of Wellington, upon his return to his native country, for the eminent services performed by him as Commander iu Chief of the Allied Army, and con- gratulating him upon the termination of the contest." Mr. W. Wynne seconded the motion, which was unanimously agreed lo. The Thanks were ordered to be presented to his Grace by a Committee of the House, consisting of fifteen Members, amongst whom wefe Lord Castle- reagh, Mr. Vansittlart, Mr. Rose, Mr. Bathurst, Mr. Whitbread, Mr. Canning, Mr. Wilberforce, Lord Milton, Mr. Ponsonby, and Mr. Wynne. SLAVE TRADE. Mr. Wilberforce said, in now rising to bring forward this subject, he did il under great distress and pain of mind. When, after twenty years of struggling, this fjreal measure was carried in this country, he and hi friends had flattered themseives this nefarious traffic would have no longer existed; unhappily, however, the contrary was discovered to be the case, as we now. found a great nation had refused lo feud its aid to this great work. The Hon. Gentleman proceeded to take a view of the state of the Slave Trade, as it at present stands with ( he Powers of llie Continent; and ob- served, it gave him great pleasure to find that the Government of Holland had acceded to the wishes expressed by this Government, that an end should lie putto the traffic. ' Denmark and Sweden had pre v'rous'v adopted our policy, and he mui h regretted thai, previous to Ihe ralilh atioti of the late Treaty w ith France, the House bad not. had an opportunity of considering the. articles of it. " a* lie was well con- vinced lio circumstances or sacrifices whatever wouk have iuduced thi..- country lo have acceded to Ihe article now mirier consideration. The Hon. Gentle man observed, it was not merely the evil arising from 5000 or 10,000 individuals being annually carried inlo slavery, t lit il was the extended scene of misery which the mode of obtaining these unhappy victims introduced inlo the country from Whence they were taken, and the state of barbarism in which that coun try was ret- incd by this unnatural traffic, which d served principal Consideration. The reluct a uce whit France had expressed lo relinquish this traffic, he con rived, nfose from an intention to re- people the immense is and of St. Domingo. This, however, wa a vaglie hope; it would require between ( wo and three ndllloi s of persons ' to etfect that purpose, and would occti a century, to carry it into operation, lie trusted this ould he pointed out to the French Government, and that they would be induced to forego a p'an wl; ieh,- ouce entered upon, could not he given up. Il was provided bv ihe Treaty lately entered into w'th France, that llie SlaveTi- ade shou. d be given up at t ie end of five'years. lie wished il lo Le plainly ,. ti distinctly statt- d, lh* t at the end of five years the jwanffituBtw t)) e ( il » feot^ oo' « ld - be- gained by mildet. He ISftpled rim extrfioms, tsgeftier with those of - onr Allies at the General Congress, would aceouip'ish this grea't end, and lli^ t all She nations of Europe wcmld be brciglil to agree to its fisal anmhilation.— lie thenj » ! Ovetl, " That an humble Address shpuld, tie presented to his Royal Highnees the Prince Regent, representing to him t he sorrow of. the . House, thstt the eneVavnnrs of iris Royal Highness ' to pt'ocure the con- . sent of France to abolish the African Slave Trade had failed of success} and praying that his Royal High-- uess woivd jie pleased to endeavour to procure the, concurrence of France to- some diniinntien of the pe- riod allotted for the esntiutianre. of the African Slave Trade, a nd to . olitain the consent of all the States of Europe to liiat Abolition, at the approaching General Congress." Mr. Barham seconded tlre metiori. Lord Castlereagh said, that eoinmrring as lie did wi'Ki the Honourable Gentleman, ' in all thesentiments which he ihad " Uttered,- he could irot itelp expressing his : r » ' grt't that the opinions o:' fne people oT France, w itli regard to their colonies, had obst:- « ctedthc great - object of the Honourable Gentleman at least for a time. T1re Tlononra'ble Gentleman had complained that, fullteffeet had rtot been given to his exertions; but he trusted lie should be able to satisfy tire House antl him, thift every thmgthat could be done, con- sistent-* ith sound policy, had been doireto accomplish thfe greai effort t) f htiKianity. He co'altl assure the Honourable Gentleman, that, iv. his belief if he ' h. ul pressed ffce period for " file hbfflilion of the Slave Trade to be shorttHied, that article would lm v< e bet n refused by the French Government aliogether. If we had refaitted the colonies frwrn France unless sire gave up the Slave Trade, she would have given us no credit ou the scote of humanity, but would have said that we had YOiTied on a colonial war- merely for acquisi tian, and for tlie purpose of retaining all that we had got. Ministers ha'd endeavoured, as much as possible, to get the continuance « ftfris traffic limited from five : ars to three; Imt, fa'ilingw that, they then procured an engagement Ibat^ fe inten'ening time should be occupied in the graelwal wneiera. tion of- t- lie principles • ontended for by the Honourable Gentleman. It was no wean advantage gained to ihe cause, that this part,< tf< i>? negotiation with France had ended ami- ably, ajid mot in an a- ngry toiw:; and - he coald assm- e his Honourable Friend, that Russ'ra, Austria, a « rl Prussia. wt* c prepared to accede to tire Complete abo- ilion ofthis traffic. To succeed, they must go ou gradually and with caution. Pursuing thit course, he had no dread of being able to prevail on Spain and Portugal t- 9 abolish this traffic also. He hoped the House wonld give Government credit for tltcir exer- tions oB thin subject, and also for those they were de termim.' d 1 « make in its favour-, tint lie hoped it would never be expected that it sb » u'd be obtained by w — for morals were never well tamglit by the sword. Mr. Ponsonby cordially agreed with the Address ofhis. Honourable Friend, though ii* e believed- it would be productive of lift re or no benefit, Mr; Barham said, that rather than be a party with France iu this traffic, he would give her back tlie Article for its Abolition iu five years, altogether. She ' might then carry it on or not ; it would then be her own net and deed, and we should have no share i » the ! guiit. It - was like making a compact with a murderer, that ho . should murder for such a time, but no longer. He moved an addition to the Address, that we should endeavour to obtain from France an immediate abo- lilion of the African Slave Trade; in return for which, • we should make tnv concession to her, consistent vxit. ii rea.° oii and justice. Mr. W. Smith believed that the people of France • were in a state of apathy oil this subject. If we had not beeo a party to that Treaty, the wiio'e guilt, at least thfe whole infamy of the traffic, would have at- tached to France. Portugal ought to have given up this traffic, c- onsidering slie owed to us her very exist- ence" as a nation; and Spain ought to h? ve been obliged to give it up, if she would not do it of her own accord. Mr. Marryat and Mr. Whitbread supported the original motion. Mr. Bathurst contended that it was the interest of this'eoHntry, in its Treaty with France, rather to ac- cede to the wish of the country with which we were treating, than by arbitrary injunctions to impel the French Government and people to accept terms con- trary to . their wjshes, Mr. Wynne supported the original motion. Mr. Canning was prepared to support the original motion. He did not see those objections. to the amend- ment, however, which some Gentlemen saw; but, for the sake of unanimity, he could wish that aincudment withdrawn. Mr. Wilberforce replied. Mr. Burham then expressetl his readiness to with- draw his amendment, which was done, and tlie ori- ginal motion was agreed to unanimously. Lord Castlereagh, in an eTc. fjn?. nt and impressive ij speech, defended the'Only Article of tlie Treaty which I had'been bhtmed ; namely, thrsi relative to iiie Slave j Trade; and contended, tint ft - would have been at- ' tended with the most iujurioim effects to the cafcse of Europe if any fntiTidalory Thjunctlon of Parliament had forced the Crown of this Country to make the abeKtiou of - the Slave Trade the tine tj'it >• m for the restoration of the French Colonies.—( The. Noble Lord was lo ' idly . cheered by the House tlrioitghout his spereh.) Mr. W. Smith could not suffer the - question te be put. without returning ihe Noble Lord his sincere thanks for tlie able, luminous, and eloquent explana- tion which he had given the House. The Noble Lord, likehisillnstrious countryman, Wellington, seemed to Uave. risen with every difficulty which hid befc- n op-: posed to him J and he was convinced, if his councils had been sufieied to guide the country leug ago, the war would have been shortened many yeans. Many hundred millions oF treasiwei, and tunny thousand ives.- would have beeii saved to ( he nation, in siving lhis, iie wi- n. convinced ire spoke I le sentiments of the House, and of tire country ^( Lord cheering.) The motiea for the Address was unaniacously agreed to. LONDON. Paris papers of the 24th state, that Prussia is to receife not only great acquisitions on the Rhine from Mayence to Wesel, but also a - great part of Saxony, which is to preserve its . Constitution, and • to be governed by a Vice- Roy. In return for. this, Prussia, it is added, will telle to Russia that part of Eastern Prussia, which is situated on the right bank of the Niemen, so that the hater power may possess Memel and the mouths of the Niemen. Austria, it is also said, will cede a great part of Gallicia to Russia, and will be indemnified by the acquisition of the Tyrol, and the whole ef the ci- itvaut Kingdom of Italy. With respect ta Italy, • we 1- fl. rn by a Proclamation of the Count de Belle- garde, dated Milan the 12th that Lombardy, Mantua, the Brescia, Bergamo awd Cremona, are d iiiiitively united - to the Empire of Austria. The following statement has been circulated with more than - common confidence at Frankfort:— Austria cedes to Russia the Buckowine, and two other- circles in East Gallicia, hut is indemnified not only with the city of Cracow, but also an adequate territory beyond tlie Vistula in West Gailicia. On tfee other side, Austria receives the whole of Vene- tian Dalmatia, the Duchy of Mantua, Lombardy, and the Venetian Islands of Greece, Corfu, Cepha- lonia, Zante, Sec. On the German side, Austria receives all Tyrol, the Inviertel, Saltzburg, and Passau; a cession will be arranged with Bavaria, for which that Kingdom will get, as an indemnity, Wurtzburg, and an adequate territory on the Rhine and Maine, Prussia is - to have the Duchy of Berg.

It is a Court of terrible— of . almost omnipotent jurisdiction; . ftn l wherever it is established, a shadow of freedom can hardly be said to exist. By a private vessel which is just arrived, laden with - coffee, we have information of - the state of affairs St. Domingo, so recent as April last. At Port- au- Prince very high expectations were : indulged of the success © f a powerful expedition projected by the President Petion against the si/ i- difsunt Henry I. Emperor of Hayti. The forces of the former were about 15 000 men, and might have been augmented to 20,003, had sufficient arms been provided. The troops of the Cape were about equal in number. The country had been devastated by four or five different candidates fir power, and the pro iwtive trade for which it had been distinguish d no longer existed. All the pre- cious mt- tals hail disappeared on the island, aud for the purposes of interchange, a species of tin had been substituted, to which a nominal and ar- bitrary value was assigned. It is supposed by the passengers in this vessel, who had the besft oppor- tunity of judging of the political and military rela- tions of that country^ that., if in fulhlineHt of ' the 8th aiticle of the late treaty of Paris, France; should send a considerable force to St. Domingo to re- establish it as a colony, the two p irties of Petion and Henry would unite for their common defence, however inveterate may have been their former hostility. Shipbuilding is now in- a most unexampled state of prosperity in India. A new vessel for the Company's service was launched iu November - at Calcutta; it was baptieed the Vansittart, and is 1200 tons burden. Three other vessels of inferior burden, caded the General Kyd, Earl « f Moiea, and the Susan, were launched about the same time, a- nd a mtmber of others are announced in the India Papers to be on the stocks.

TUESDAY, JUNE 28. Petitions were presented from a great number of placcs, praying for a revision of that article of the Treaty by which the continuance of the Slave Trade was to be permitted for live years in the colonies to be ceded tei France. Mr. Lushington obtained leave to bring in a Bill for altering the law respecting the Redemption of the Land- Tax. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29. A great number of Petitions were presented from various parts of the country, complaining of that Article in the Treaty of Peace, by which France was permitted to import slaves in the colonies ceded to her. •' i he Chancellor of the Exchequer moved for leave to bring iu a Bill for llie better regulation of the conduct of the business in the Office of Works, and the expen- diture thereof. Mr. Tierney observed, that it was impossible for Ministers not to have seen that the expences now in- curring by the buildings in the Park were excessive. It. was a most idle description of expence, and the sin- gularity of it was,- that tt was undertaken for the amusement of persons no longer present, and was now pursued with increased alacrity. He certainly did think that, it was the duty of the Treasury to in- terfere; for without such interference these works would go on till tlie cost amounted to a frightful sum. The Chancellor of the Exchequer observed, that Government bad issued directions to curtail the works in the Parks as much as their existing state of for- wardness would admit. In particular, the public would not be gratified with the exhibition of a mngni- cent sca- fitjkt on the Canitl, as intended—-( A langk.) — Leave was given to bring in the Bill. Lord Castlereagh laid before the House several Papers connected with the affairs of the Princess of Wales, and gave notice, that, ou Monday, he would propose llie consideration ofthosepapers tothe House, with a \ ie\ v of submitting an increase of the Princess of Wales's Establishment.—( Hear.) Lord Laseeles proposed an Address 6f Congratula- tion to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent on the conclusion of a Treaty, which he considered in re- sj'tcls ( w ith the exception of one article) perfectly satisfactory and honourable to the eountrv. Mr. Wilberforce " moved m. addition tlie Address, ( list llie House having, on the 27th ult. conveyed its s< ntiincuts to the Regent, would defer giving its opi- nion on the article respecting the Slave Trade, relying on the exertions to be made by his Ministers at ihe approaching Congress in favour of its total abp/ itiw which was atrreed to. An article from Copenhagen suggests the pro- bability of some new modification of the constitu- tion of Denmark, which, if at all likely, must be intended to affect the succession to the Crown, to the exclusion of Prince Christian, who has sepa- rated himself from the monarchy, by an act of disobedience to tlie Court, in not abandoning Nor- way. This measure may be intended as a threat, to point out to that Prince the danger of any longer persevering in so bold and hazardous an undertak- ing. The Swedish troops, it appears, are ready to act against Norway to the amount of foriy thousand effective men, and will m ike an attaclc, it is said, at the same time, on the side of Wormeland and on that of Drontheim. This army, however, is re- presented as being but ill supplied with provisions, and Norway is not a country where they are likely to be sufficiently provided. An article from Madrid announces, that the King- has appointed. ® Committee to consider of tire best means of convoking, as speedily as possible, a 1. gitimate assemblage of the Cortes, including also the Deputies of the Indies. To this body his Ma- jesty is to propose a constitutional - charter, confor- mably to the true principles of the Monarchy. It is stated, a1 the same time, that a limited Monarchy is what the intelligence of the age requires, as well as modern manners, and the generous and elevated character of Spaniards. We find by the private letters From Madrid, that the patriots who were arrested on the approach of the King to that city, continue to be persecuted with the utmost rigour. Arguillas, Quintana, Cano Manuel, the Editors of the Conciso and the Redacteur General, have been sentenced to suffer death, and to be. beheaded ; and the 5th inst. was the day appointed for their execution. It was, however, expected that this sentence would be com- muted for that of banishment for life. The same letters add, that though Madrid was then in a tran- quil state, very serious disturbances were appre- hended, to guard against which, additional troops were almost daily marched towards the capital. The Prince Sovereign of the Netherlands has published a Decree, ordering the War Minister to invite the soldiers returning - from France, who were compelled to serve as conscripts, to enlist into the Dutch army, but to give to all that desire to return home, full liberty to do so. Sieyes is entirely forgotten at Paris, although it is said that he opposed the Act by which the Sena- tors declared themselves permanent, hereditary and proprietors of all the dotations. Lebrun visits the Ministers under his title of Arch- Treasurer and the l'olding- doors are opened to receive him In general, the security which the most odious in struments of the tyrant evince is singular enough Savary long walked the streets of Paris, without being insulted more than once. The most devoted agents of the Police, after having disappeared for siitne weeks, have? taken courage, and returned to the capital, where nobody molests them. The famous Fouche, formerly head of Bona- parte's Police at Paris, is now in that city. lie is said to be deeply hurt, that, in spite of his offers of service and the reparation he offered for the part he took in the trial of Louis XVI. his repentance has been rejected, and his political existence en tirely annihilated. They speak of a letter he has written to the King on the subject, and, it is added that he is about to publish a memorial, which he drew up in 1S04, upon the Revolution— the parties it produced— the crimes and the errois it commit- ted— aud finally,- the. means of effacing the fatal marks of it; ' and of organizing a Police that shall neither be odious nor oppressive to France, it ap- pears, that he " wishes to offer this memorial as a his opinions, aad the Letters from Gottenburgh state that Mr. Russel and Mr. Adams, the American Plenipotentiaries, left that place on the lltti, intending to land at Flush- ing, and from thence to proceed to Ghent, the scene of negotiation. Mr. Clay had previously set out to travel by the way of Amsterdam and Ihe Hague to Flanders. As Mr. Bayard had Jeft Paris, it may be assumed, that by the 1st t> f July all the Repub- lican Commissioners will be assembled for their diplomatic duties. None of the three British agents, Lord Gambier, Doctor Adams, t> r Mr. Gold- bourn, have, however, left England, to meet these Gentlemen, and it is doubtful if they will be per- mitted to repair to Ghent until the information shall haTe arrived from America, that the twenty- three original hostages, who had been detained according to the latest information, shall haTe be^ ti set at liberty.— Mr. Gallatin, tile American Minister, ar- rived on Wednesday night at Dover, and next day embarked for Calais, ou his route to Ghent. . j proof of the moderation of ' | rectitude of his principles. The visit of cur Illustrious Guests to the grand naval depot and arsenal of Portsmouth Was neces- sarily protracted beyond the appointed time, by the great variety of important objects whitb presented themselves to their inspection and admiration,— Their pursuits at length terminated oa Saturday, End they embarked at Dover on Monday. The King of Prussia slept at Brighton, on Saturday. The Emperor Alexander and the Duchess of Olden- burgh did not arrive until the following day, and stopped but a short time iu the town, continuing their journey through Battle, Rye, and Folkstone, along the coast. They entered Dover on Sunday night, amid the roar of cannon, and the acclama- tions of the people, It is understood, that the Em- peror Alexander will proceed through Holland to St. Petersburgh; and after a period of a few weeks' residence at his capital, will set out for Vienna, to be present at the General Congress.— A copious account of the occurrences at Portsmouth, during the Royal Visit there, is given in the last page. On Monday evening, at a quarter past five o'clock, the Prince Regent, attended by General Bailey, arrived at Carlton House to dinner. The Duke of Wellington set out on Friday morn- ing from his house in Hamilton- Place, for Ports- mouth, to pay his respects to the Prince Regent. Ilis Grace was accompanied by three gentlemen in a plain open carriage, drawn by six greys, with three drivers in scarlet jackets. A considerable crowd had previously assembled in front of his house, by whom, on making his appearance, he was loudly and most cordially cheered. Ilis Grace, ou his return from Portsmouth, arrived at his house in Hamilton- Place, on Saturday afternoon, He was saluted in every part of the town through which he happened to pass, with the loudest cheer- ings of the people. About four o'clock he visited Lord Harrington, at whose house he was recog- uized, and crowds assembled around it. Hi Grace appeared at the windows which look into the Park, and bowed to the assemblage. With difficulty he contrived to mount his horse ou leav- ing Lord Harrington's, every one being anxious to shake his hand, and especially the ladies, who at that time happened to be very numerous in the Park. The Opera on Saturday night was extremely brilliant; It was understood that the Duke of Wellington would be present; and expectation was kept alive through the whole performance ( if Arte- midoro, by the appearance of Mr. Wellesley Pole Long's box, which was hung round with festoons of laurel. At length, in the middle of the Ballet about eleven o'clock, the Noble Duke wSs dis- covered in the box, when the whole assembly in- stantly rose, and burst forth into an acclamation of welcome. " See the conquering Hero comes,' was called for by a thousand voices; and the Or- chestra played the tune amidst the shouts of '. he audience. 1 he torrent of applause continued for several minutes, during which time the Noble Duke kept back, as if unwilling, tp obtrude himself; but lie bowed respectfully to the- company"?' aud'Seeme. d lo feel most sensibly the marks of their enthusiastic welcome.

It is stated, th . t Prince Eugene, who if about *" » ave Paris, is to be created u Prince of the tlr. i- pire, at t'le approaching Congress of Vienun, wi. a a distinct Sovereignty. He is to retain Malmaison as a part of his propertv.

The Daphne frigate arrived at Copenhagen on the loth ult. with Mr. Foster, the Ambassador tj Denmark, who immediately landed. A ballot lias been. taken at the East India House for the determination of the question—" That a sum of 20,0001. be granted to the Executors of the late Viscount Melville, to be applied towards the liquidation of his Lordship's delils." The num- bers were— For the question 455— Against the question 280. At a Meeting of the Livery of London, in Com- mon Hall, on Tuesday, it was unanimously rcreed to petition Parliament respecting the Abolition of the Slave Trade. The Clarence, 74, arrived at Plymouth on Mon- day morning, from Bourdeaux, haying on board, the 7th regiment of infantry; and the Dublin, 74, from the same place, with the 29th regiment. His Majesty's ships Egmont, 74, and York, 74, with a frigate, sailed from Bourdeaux ihe 10th ult. with about 60 transports, having troops on board for America. The Ville de Paris, Impregnable, Stirling Castle, and eight more sail of the line, with frigates, and several large transports, are to sail with ail expe- dition to Bourdeaux, to bring home the first grand division of the British army, consisting of artilleiy and infantry. The cavalry has already set oat ou its march through France for the opposite coast. Admiral Foote. proceeds to Bourdeaux, to superin- tend the embarkation of the troops. Lord Cochrane has received every personal ac- commodation iu the King's flench Prison. It is stated that a deputation of the Committee of the Stock Exchange waited upon'him with an offer to procure a petition in mitigation of his sentence, with many hundred signatures annexed, but this his Lordship declined in positive terms, alleging his tvtal innocence, on which he professes to stand or fall. It is understood that a relative of his Lord- ship is gone over to France in pursuit of Mr. C. Johnstone, to demand his immediate return to England with him, in justification of Lord Coch- rane's innocence, or to answer for his refusal so to do, by an immediate personal conflict with hiiu on the spot. ')• The name of Lord Cochrane was oii Saturday struck off the list of Post Captains. The Prince Regent, it is said, before his departure from Lon- don, remitted that part of his sentence which in- flicted the punishment of ihe pillory. • On the approaching Thanksgiving- day for the return of Peace, there cannot surely be: a more legitimate appropriation- of the money arising from Collection Sermons-, than to the suffering Germans^ whose Mistresses baffle ali description.

The subject of the Slave Trade lias been intro- duced in the House of Commons. Mr. Wilberforce, whose philanthropy first presented that obnoxious Haffic for legislative consideration, after a long and Beritorious exertion in its suppression, relates, not Bun his charitable vir\ v, but presses its importance I the late negociations with France, with a warmth which reflects the hi' hest encomium, not only on K heart, but on his love of impartial justice.—• Wti'prawi^ a tide in political occurences which call H- the unqualified assent of all parlies, it is the glorious era which we enjoy ; but much as we regard the pre- eminent services of the Noble Lord win represented this nation in the late negociations, and much as we applaud the general result of those services, we should be wanting in respect to our- selves if we withdrew our opposition from this part of the Treaty. To risk all, for one consideration, would have been rash; but on a point where we had reason to demand, subjecting its success to future chance and probable caprice, is a departure from national dignity. In the conquered colonies we had established the annihilation of this ini- quitous traffic in human blood, and. it became us, when, according to custom, in the restoration, of conquest?, we contend for the security- of property and rights, tint a paramount duty should not have been neglected. All that can possibly be. said is, that we leave that to the humanity of others, which in ourselves we were enabled to enforce. That the day of final extermination to this mon- strous commerce is at hand, we believe; and we rejoice that the Sovereign of the Netherlands has. given his fiat against its continuance. POSTSCRIPT. The French papers, which have been received to the 28th tilt, present us with an article from the Vienna Court Gazette, which dilates with great fulness on the happy prospect of permanent tran- quillity afforded by the treaty- of peace just concluded. A letter, addressed by the Emperor Francis to Prince Schwartzenberg, anticipates in like manner a long course of peaceful years ; and the Austrian Cabinet appears to agree most fully with the English, in that wise and liberal policy, with regard to France, which requires that she should remain, in the words of Burke, " a very great and preponderating power." The Conti- nental States have suffered too much in their finances, by the convulsions of the last twenty years, to engage willingly in new and expensive contests. They have too deeply felt the evils of injustice, voluntarily to shed their blood foe ag- grandisement. There is. even reason to br> pe that the only great stain on the character of Europe, before the. French usurpations ( we allude, of course, partition of Poland) may ro/, ne„ under dis- c: is ion, and that the reunion of that once cele- brated nation, under a stable government, may be TO result. We remark-, with great satisfaction, ^•" t the illustrious Kosciusko accompanies the r* il: sh troops on their inarch from Paris to Warsaw, this circumstance implies that he is restored to his admiring country, with the entire approbation of the Emperor Alexander. The Journal de Leyden of the 21th nit. con- tains the following extract of a letter from Paris:— " His Majesty Louis XVIII. gains more and more the affection of his subjects, both by his personal qualities and the moderation and justice with which he proceeds to reorganise alt the branches of the administration. His choice of Ministers is gene- rail,- approved. The Count D'Artois, on the other band has lost a good deal of popular opinion, from the precipitation with which he acted while Lieut.- General of the kingdom. The Royalists charge him. among other things, with having signed too inconsiderately the Convention of the 23d of April, by which the French army was to evacuate all the Wfp^: places without the frontiers of Old France ; and lamuj a.^ rt, that to this precipitation was to be ascribed the < c^- ion which Fiance was com- pelled to make of all those fortresses by the Treaty of Peace." In the House of Lords, on Wednesday, the Six Millions Exchequer Bills Bill was read a third time and passed.— A variety of petitions were presented against the clause in the Definitive Treaty pet milling the importation of slaves into the French colonies.— On Thursday, the Marquis of Lans- downe moved an Address to the Prince Regent, on the subject of the Slave. Trade, which was seconded by Lord Selkirk; and the Earl of Liverpool de- claring the motion met his concurrence, it was agreed, to.— The Corruption of Blood Bill was read 4 second time. - In the House of Commons, the Land- tax Redemption Bill was read a second time.

The first anniversary of the Hinckford Hundred Branch Bible Society, lield at Braintree, 011 Tues- day, was attended by a large and most respectable body of clergy, and other ministers and gentlemen, with a numerous assembly of ladies. Great num- bers were unable to gain admittance to the place of meeting, although every exertion had been made to render it as commodious as possible. The President, Thomas Astle, Esq. took the chair about 1- 2 o'clock, and after briefly stating the object of the Mefti. ur. proceeded to read the Report of the Committee; from which it appears the sum of 4401. was raised within the first year ot ihis institution, and 615 Bibles and 233 Testaments distributed by its means; and that six Bible Assoc! ; li'ii> s have been already established.— On the mo- tion of the Rev. Dr. Adams, seconded by the Rev. Mr. Carter, the Report was ordered to he printed and circu- lated among the nr- rubers.— The Rev. Mr. Owen, Secre- tary to the parent institution, iu an address of near an hour, delivered 111 his usual strain of eloquence, gave a most interesting account of its operations to promote the circulation of the jloly Scriptures throughout the United Kingdom, us its first object; and of those most extensive labours iu which it is engaged on the European Continent, and other parts of the world; particularly noticing the Societies at Berlin, Stockholm, St. Petersburg, Moscow, aud oue very recently formed at Copenhagen, 31 paw • uniting the whole north of Europe in one common bond of Christian love ; and adverted to tlie very gracious manner in which the Illustrious Sovereigns of two of those coun- tries '( the Emperor Alexander and King of Prussia) re- ceived a Deputation from the British aird Foreign Bible. Society a few days since, particularly the very earnest manner in which the former expressed his conviction of its utility and necessity. Mr. Owen also stated some inte- resting facts relative to the operations cf the institution ip the Peninsula of India and its dependencies.— The Rev. Mr. Bull, from Colchester, then addressed the Meeting, iu behalf pi'the Committee of the Colchester and East Essex Auxiliary Society; and the Rev. Mr. Thurlow proposed a vote oftfiaiiks to the Noble Patron, the Marquis of Buck- ingham, the President, Vice. Presidents, and Treasurer, for their support, which was seconded . by the Rev.

It was then proclaimed in various parts of the city, when, on returning to the Market Place, the Pro- clamation was repeated amidst the acclamations of thousands of spectators. Peace was also formally- proclaimed at Cambridge on the same day. The procession consisted of a very numerous cavalcade of the Corporation, Local Militia, & c. & c. accompanied by a band of music, and colours flying, together with a most respectable number of the clergy, gentry, and principal inha- bitants of the town and neighbourhood. The cere- mony was followed by a dinner at the Red Lion, which was attended by many of the most con- siderable inhabitants. HARWICH, June 39.— Thursday next, the day appointed for a General Thanksgiving, is intended at this place also to be devoted to the celebration oi the late glorious events which have terminated i. i Peace to all Europe ; and, for that purpose, besid s some processions which will take place, the chil- dren of the National Schools of this borough, esta- blished on the Rev. Dr. Bell's system, are to be gratuitously supplied with a dinn r of the good old English fare— beef and plum- pudding; after which there will be an exhibition of rustic, sports, such as donkey- racing, & cc. on the lawn by the sea side, a. id in the evening an illumination, with a splendid dis- play of ( ire- works, amongst which it is expected that some of the famous Congreve rockets will be discharged^ nod indeed, agreeably to the arrange- in en. ts. already making, no pains or expence will be spared 11 crown the whole with the utmost festivity- adapted to the orcasion, which will, 110 doubt, at- tract a numerous assniblage of company. Ou Sunday and Monday ln-, t many of the inhabi- tants of this town were very much disappointed and dissatisfied from the circumstance of public notice having been given that the Rev. John Owen, M. A. Rector of Paglesham, in this county, and one of the Secretaries of the British and Foreign Bible Society, would preach two sermons on Sunday, pre- paratory to a meeting 011 ihe following day, to form a Branch Bible Society in this place, which was prevented by the influence of some clerical gentle- men. Being thus unexpectedly prevented, Mr. Owen preached at Ramsey church in the morning, and at Dovercourt in the afternoon. At the latter- place he had a large congregation, to whom he ex- plained, in an eloquent, energetic, and pathetic manner, the nature and design of the institution, and the good that had already been effected, and that was likely to be effected thereby. It having been thought expedient to postpone the Meeting for establishing a Branch Bible So- ciety at Harwich, which was to have been held last Monday, the following Letter from the Right Hon. the Chancellor of the Exchequer, addressed to the Rev. W. Whinfield, Vicar of Harwich, is published for the general information of the friends to the Institution in Harwich and its vicinity :—? " Dr. A it Sin,— 1 ought to have returned you earlier thanks, i'or the very agreeable intelligence of the intended formation of a Branch Bible Society at Harwich Ever since 1 have had tiiehouoiir ofoeiug connected with' ill a ancient and r spec table borough, I have felt an anxious wish thai such a. i institution should be formed there, not merely because, from the local situation " of Harwich, and the frequent resort of foreigners there, it. is a station par- ticularly calculated to promote the objects of the Society, but because I am earnestly desirous tli. it all those in whose prosperity I take an interest should be united in a cause of the highest importance and most extensive benefit to mankind Tint the utility of the Society is fait in every port of th? world, and among persons of every class, its Reports furnish" the most satisfactory proofs ; and the value in w iich it is held by those of the highest raiik, was fully evinced by the maimer 1.1 which its Deputation wa- reqeivedby the Emperor of Russia and The King of Prussia, of which Mr. Owen will give you I'I 1 interesting details. — Happy it is for the world when its Sovereigns turn their niimis to objects like these,--- objects w hich not ouly confer dignity ou the most exalted of the earth, but may * furnish the proper employment audhappiuess of superior natures— of the spirits of the just made perfect— of the blessed augels ot God 1 and tor which He, who is far above all created beings, disdained uot to take our nature upon him, to restore salvation to a fallen race, and to bring life aud immortality to light through the gospel. " 1 need not say, that 1 should have felt great pleasure in attending such a Meeting as i trust yours will be, and that 1 much regret that business makes it impossible for me to leave London at present, for which 1 must beg you to offer my excuses to all my friends; but I shall think myself honoured by any situation iu which the Society may judge my services to be of use, and request leave to inclose a donation* to its funds. Believe me ever, dear Sir, your faithful aud obedient servant, N. VANSITTART." * A draft for fifty guineas. Chelmsford Races are fixed for. the 9th, 10th, and 11th of August. On Monday last, C. C. Western, Esq. M. P. for this county, presented petitions to the House of. Commons, from Braintree, Wethersfield, Rochford, Rayleigh, West Ham, and Chishill, against the Slave Trade. A number of ladies in the town and neighbour- hood of Chelmsford, feeling a compassionate inte- rest in the cause of the distressed inhabitants of Germany and other parts of the Continent, It aye collected upwards of 1.101. towards their relief. Wednesday Mr. Wellesley Long gave a grand fete to his uncle, the Duke of Wellington, at Wan- stead House, in this county. The Prince Regent* the Duke of York, the Prussian Princes Frederick. William and Henry, were present at the dinner. The King v. Marsden— The King v. Bridge— Motions were made in these causes on Tuesday last, io the former by Mr. Gurney, an 1 in th. e latter by Mr. Richardson, for Rules, to show cause why the proceedings should not. be suspended. till after the ensuing Assizes, npon the ground that the Recorder, Mayor, and Magistrates, who were ai- led ; ed to have been libelled, were all usurpe: s, and informations were exhibited again- 1 each of them by the order of the Court, and now in prosecution. — The Court granted a Rule to show cause, but iu- limated. an opinion that it was not a suili ient grouud for putting off a trial for a libel, which miEcht. equally be upon a Mayor de facto as de jure.— Rule discharged. On Monday last were interred, in the family vault, at Lawford Church, the remains of Edward Green, Esq. late of Lawford Hall, i. i this county, and of Sudbury, in the county • of Suffolk, j . istly respected as a well- informed magistrate, and pos- sessed of a mind highly cultivated by- ex ten ive reading.

Ex tract of a Letter from Cantain Usher, of hit Majesty's ship Undaunted, Frejus. Soon after my arrival at Freju.% Count Bertrand, Grand Marshal, informed me that it was the Empe- ror's wish to see me, ( he is still acknowledged Em- Feror and Sovereign nf the Island of Elba ) When was presented, he said he was once a great enemy to England, but now he was as sincere a friend- s- he said we were a great and generous nation. lie asked me about the wind, weather, distance to Elba, and other nautical questions ; he then bowed and retired. He was very dignified; still the Emperor. I received his command to dine with him— there were at table, the Russian, Austrian, Prussian, and English Commissioners, and the Grand Marshal: the conversation was most interest- ing. He laughed when I asked if he did not issue his Milan Decree, for forcing America to quarrel with us—- lias- foe did not deny— he said, all his plans were on an immense scale, and would have been finished in four or five years. I have not time W repeat all his interesting conversation. That night we embarked all his numerous baggage. In the morning he sent for me, lie asked how the wincFwas, and said, that lie had made up his mind to embark at eight i lithe evening. At seven o'clock an immense mob formed round his hotel; he sent for me-, and I remained half an hour alone With him. His sword was on the table, and he appeared very thoughtful— there Was a great noise in tile street. I said to him the French mob are the worst I have seen ; lie answered they are a fickle people. He appeared in deep thought; but, recovering himself, rang the bill, and ordering the Grand Marshal to be sent for, he asked if all was ready—' being answered in'the'affirmative, he turned to ine, and said, in his osual quick way. Allans. The stairs were lined at each side with ladies and gentlemen ; he stopped a moment, and said some thing- to the ladies, which I could not hear. He walked to his carriage, and called for me ( not a safe berth) ; he then called the Austrian Commis- sioner and the Grand Marshal. I sat opposite to him in the carriage, and we drove oft'. He was banded into the beat by a nephew of ( Mr Sidney Smith, who is my fourth Lieutenant, ( rather an odd coincidence.) Lieut. Smith had been confined in a prison for seven or eight years. I introduced ' htm. The Emperor seemed to fed his conscience prick him ; he only said, " Nephew to Sir Sidney Smith ; I met. him in Egypt." When he went on board lie walked round the ship ; my people crowd- ed about him, and for the first time in his life he felt confidence in a mob. His spirits seemed to revive, and he told me next morning that he had never slept better ; next day he asked me a thou- sand questions, and seemed quite initiated in all nautical matters. At breakfast, and dinner there was a great deal of conversation ; he spoke of the Scheldt expedition. I asked him if he thought we should succeed ? he said, " Never;" and turning a little towards the Austrian Commissioner, he said, " I wrote from Vienna that the expedition was in- tended against Antwerp," He told me that his motive in aftttexiflg Holland to France was for a naval purpose, and- that be thought'the Zuder Zee particularly well ' adapted for exercising his - conv scripts. At breakfast one morning, he asked me to bring- to a neutial brig that was passing ; I said, laughing, that I was astonished his Majesty would give such an order, as it was contrary to his system to denationalize ; lie turned round, and gave me a pretty hard nip, saying " Ah, Captain !" When we were sailing by the Alps, he leaned on my arm for lifdf an hour, looking earnestly at them. I told him he once passed them with better fortune. He laughed, and lfked the compliment. He told me that he had been once wounded, and in the knee, By an English Serjeant, fie looks uncommonly well and young. He is changed much for the better, being now very stout. He shewed me a portrait of the King ol Rome, who is very like his father. He likewise shewed ine one of the Em press, which is rather pretty. We had a smart gale when oil Corsica. He asked me to anchor at Ajaccio, the place of his birth; but the wind changing, made it impossible. In the gale, I told him 1 had more confidence than Caesar's pilot ; the compliment pleased him. I returned to Frejus, to embark the Princess Borghese, his sister, who goes oil a visit to Elba. He dresses very plain, wearing a green coat, with the decoration of the Legion of Honour. The portrait of him, with the cocked lial and folded aims, is the strongest likeness I have seen. • the rivalry between ( he two notions is surprising. If any praise is given to England, a Frenchman immediately. endeavours to find something1 equal. A fir a:! the tirades of Napoleon, there is, of co'Jrifcv./^^ o'd deal of enmity, to us among the c on u:< ( jiijpt o p le; tidi the general sentiment amongst all ranks'; qf society seems to be, that England in Jarts, as in arms, is the only worthy rival of France. In entertaining such a sentiment, a Frenchman does ' us no small honour, after being so long ac- customed to regard his country as indisputably the first in the world. Although Great Britain is not allowed to have reached the goal, it is ad- mitted, at least, that she has entered the course with eclat. Many representations have been made to the King by the manufacturers, as to the loss they will sustain from the introduction of English ma- nufactures. ' Ibis might naturally be expected, for personal interest will always be found the most powerful motive. Of course, such addresses cannot be attended to, or no commerce can exist. \\ hat w ill be lost on one manufacture will be gained on another-. 1? the French cottons fall before ours, we, on the other hand, cannot equal their silks and cambrics; and the same balance remains through all the range of manufactures. ' 1 he productions ' of British industry are in great request here. It appears to me that France may gain at least as much as England by a fair tinflic, especially when it is considered that the principal articles of her exportation will be natural products ofher soil. This city is as fertile as London in absurd reports. Those respecting Bonaparte are extraordinary enough. Some say he is raving mad, others that he is poisrtned, ami others that he is in England, although the fact is ascertained beyond a doubt, that he is amusing himself in arranging his new Government, and introducing a new order of things, in the island of Elba. The slavery to which this singular man'had redwed1 the press is surprising. 1 heard an instance the other day which is very extravagant:— A person having prepared for the press a work on military subjects, presented it to: an intimate acquaintance, one of the Ministers of Napoleon, for his opinion. The Minister- pointed out a passage vtfhich bestowed very high praises on the English horses, and confidentially hinted to the author that it would be better to omit that passage. ' 1 his advice was given from a tolerably accurate knowledge of the feelings of the Emperor. From the general conduct of Bonaparte I do not see much reason to doubt the truth of this anecdote. Much conversation takes place here on the dif- ferences between the Prince and Princess of Wales. People in general appear puzzled, especially those who believe the Princess innocent. There are many, however, who know very little about the matter, who entertain a contrary opinion. The reasons stati 4 oil both sides, even in the best circles here, would do no more than excite the smile of a U- informed Englishman. Some of them were certainly never thought of in London. AFFAIRS OF FRANCE. PARIS, JUNE 24, 1S14. There is no new event of importance here, nor indeed could any be expected in the present situa- tion, of affairs. Seme people amused themselves by circulating numerous rumours of a disagreeable nature, on the revival of the Fete Dieu, which re- cently took place, hut all passed off quietly, not- withstanding the change made in the manners of the people for that day, which they have long re- garded as the gayest in the Week. The shops were shut, and the greatest order was preserved. The French papers have given yon a description of the processions. There are some persons who fear, or affect to fear, that the priesthood will acquire its ancient ascendancy, but they have certainly very- weak grounds for their apprehensions, if tiny found tinm on the renewal in the capital of a cere- mony which has long since been revived in the provinces. There is no party liete which is to be dreaded. The admirers of Napoleon met fall into the crowd and be forgotten ; the discontented have no means of bettering, their condition, which is not atlriliufiible to the King, and you may be { wsund that the rumours engendered by some evil spirits, ore not woithy of attention. A good deal of suiprise is felt here at the delay iri tbe signature of the treaty of commerce. No- thing is talked of in the conversations on this sub- ject but England. Indeed, on every point almost, ROYAL VISIT TO PORTSMOUTH. PORTSMOUTH, FRIDAY, JUNE 24. His Royal Highness the Prince Regent rode in his carriage yesterday morning to the Dock- yard, where he was met by tile Allied Sovereigns, the Royal Dukes, the Duchess of Oldenburgh, and a numerous retinue of General Officers. His Royal Highness- and suite embarked in the King's barge, and the Illustrious Strangers embarked in the Pert Admiral's barge, amidst the cheers of the town. Fourteen ships of the line, chiefly of first rate, were moored at anchor ill two lines, from south- east to north- west, extending nearly four miles. The vessels were ( with the addition of one whose name was not noticed) the Ville de Paris, St. Domingo, Bedford, Rodney, Chatham, Prince, Tigre, Queen, Sceptre, Magnificent, Montague, Stirling Castle, and the flag- ship, the Impregnable, on board of which the distinguished Visitors assembled. On the arrival of the Prince Regent's barge within sight of the fleet, a Royal salute of 21 guns was fired by the whole fleet at once. On the barge bearing the Royal Standard reach- ing the flag- ship, the flag of his Royal Highness the Duke of Clarence was struck, and the Royal Standard, of new and exquisite workmanship, hoisted on the main top- gallant- mast head. It w as saluted with 21 guns by the whole fleet at once. It is computed that £ 00 sail at this moment were un- der weigh, traversing opposite courses in the space of four miles, and yet such was the management, that not an accident happened. The hills surround- ing Portsmouth and South Sea Common were covered with most elegant company. The dignified party partook of a sumptuous refreshment on board- and during their stay. The Impregnable hoisted the Union Flag at the mizen, and that of the Ad- miralty at the fore top- gallant- mast head, and on the Prince Regent arriving on board, the crew wel- comed him with three cheers, and the band played " God save the King," The four frigates and other vessels ef war were under weigh during the whole time, displaying uaval tactics. The Prince Regent and his- Illustrious Visitors returned to the Sally- port, where they landed at four o'clock, the Royal Standard having been struck on board the Impregnable, with the yards again manned; a third Royal salute by the whole fleet was tired, and a fourth on the party landing, by signal from the platform. The Admirals and Cap- tains of the fleet assembled on board the flag- ship by signal, and accompanied the Prince Regent on shore in procession. Ten thousand troops were drawn up in Portsmouth at the landing, and a fcu- de- joic was fired, and repeated, several times, with much dexterity. The Officers of the fleet and a dis- tinguished number diued with the Prince Regent at the Government House. After the amusements of the day had closed with the setting sun, an event occurred which gave fresh life to the town. A coach, drawn by eight horses, drew up at the Crown Inn, or Clarence Hotel, from which the gallant Blucher alighted. He was im- mediately identified, and on no occasion in London was the populace more numerous ; the eagerness to grasp his hand, by both sexes,- was unparalleled. " Blucher! Blucher!" tilled the air. " Shew me the Conqueror of the Tyrant';"—" Come forward, Blucher!' was exclaimed on all sides. ' I he gallant veteran appeared at the window w ith his accustomed cheerfulness ; the air was rent with applause. ' Hie Marshal, with a bumper in his hand, drank-, in English, the health of the ccuq any. It may easily be imagined in what maimer this toast was re- turned. SATURDAY, JUNE 25. The Dock- yard, yesterday morning, engaged the attention of our Illustrious Visitors. The Prince Regent, the Duke of York, ( he King of Prussia, the Prussian Princes, the other Princes of Germany, and a large assemblage of distinguished individuals, native and foreign, repaiied early to the Emperor Alexander, at Commissioner Grey's house, whence they proceeded to view the various establishments. 1 be ships building or repairing in the slips, the immense naval stores of every description in the warehouses, the rope- house, the copper- works, and all the ether important branches, Were exa- mined with much attention. But the Emperor and the King appealed more O'. culiaily interested by that unequalled system of machinery for making the ships' blocks, the rapid operations of which they witnessed with particular pleasure. About two o'clock the royal barges, with the w hole . party, and the rest of the grand aquatic pro- cession, lett the King's Stairs at the Dock- Yard in the same order a? the- day before, to pay another and a longer visit to the fleet in the Reacts. Royal salutes were fired from all the latteries. On their arrival at the fleet, the Prince Regent, King arid Princes of Prussia, and many others, went on board the Royal Sovereign yacht, which imme- diately hoisted the Royal Standard. 1 he Emperor Alexander had previously gone with the I) uke of Clarence on beard the Impregnable, the interior of which seemed to afford bis Imperial Majesty pecu- liar delight. He Was assiduous iu making himself personally acquainted with nautical arrangements, fhe fleet, consisting of fifteen sail of the line, and about the same number of frigates, formed a line of seven or eight miles in extent, in front of the Isle of Wight. They received the Royal Visitors with a general salute, after- which they slipped their cables, and were initeiediately under sail, with a brisk north- east gale. They speedily cleared St. Helen's, and went quite out to sea. 1 he Royal Sovereign yacht led the Van. The yachts and barges of the Admiralty, the Naval Commissioners, the Ordnance, and other public offices, a great number of private yachts, and above 200 vessels of all descriptions, sailed cut, keeping at various distances from the fleet. About five o'clock the whdfe lins'of ships of war hove to by signal, when the Prince Regent, the King of Prussia, the Prussian and other Princes, left the Royal Sovereign, and went to the Emperor of Russia and his party in the Impregnable, to which the Royal Standard was accordingly shifted. At this time the leading ships were about twelve miles from Portsmouth. The Royal circle partook of some entertainment in the lmpregnable's cabin. The signal was made soon afttrvvardsfor the return of all the ships of war to their anchorage, where they were reviewed on Thursday. The wind was not so favourable for sailing lack. As they re- turned, they continued their firing, so as to afford, in some respects, the idea of a naval engagement. The whole line were at their anchorage by half past seven, off Spithead, when the Emperor, King, Regent, Princes, & c. & c. all quitted the Impregna- ble, and got into their respective barges, sailed up the harbour-, and landed at the King's Stairs. All the artillery round the works of Portsmouth and Portsea, on the Blockhouse, Cumberland, and South Sea Forts, and on the different batteries at Haslar were discharged, which was followed by ten Feux- de- joies of the many thousand military drawn up, When the Prince Regent arrived at the Govern ment House, he there found the Duke of Welling ton, waiting his approach. The multitudes with- out filled the air with shouts of " Wellington,' from the landing place to the doors of the Govern- ment House, The Noble Duke had entered Ports- mouth about an hour and a half previously, and was driving to an inn in the High- street. The British hero was speedily known, and the populace instantly took the horses from his carriage and drew him to the portico of the Regent's abode After the lapse of a few minutes, his Grace ap peared publicly on the balcony, and bowed repeat- edly. Lord Stewart ( late Sir C. Stewart) also came in yesterday, and was highly honoured. Between eight and nine o'clock the company arrived to dine with the Prince. All the streets were lined with hussars, dragoons, and infantry, ' 1 he King of Prussia and his family came earliest, The Emperor of Russia and the Duchess of Olden- burgh followed, each accompanied by guards of honour. The Duke of Wellington dined with them at the Regent's, and at half past ten appeared at the balcony again, in company with the Regent, Em peror, King, and Princes, and was again received with enthusiastic applause. The whole town is again illuminated, and with additional splendour. SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 26. His Grace the Duke of Wellington left us yester- day morning for London. The last grand spectacle was that of the military in review order' on Ports down- hill. At eleven o'clock the Prince Regent and the Allied Sovereigns and retinue, left Ports- mouth for Portsdown- hill. About 7000 troops were drawn up; and the Regent and the lllustri ous Visitors having stationed themselves in front of the line on- horseback, the infantry passed by in companies in review order, the dragoons keeping the ground. The line was then formed, and the Prince Regent and their Majesties rode down and inspected them, and then drove off for Goodwood to breakfast with the Duke of Richmond. From thence the Royal party will proceed to Petworth the seat of the Earl of Egremont, to dine and sleep and afterwards to Brighton.— Thus has ended the grandest scene perhaps ever witnessed in this or any other country. The Prince Regent will take a farewell of his distinguished Visitors at the Pavilion, at Brighton, to- morrow ; from which ihe Regent returns ta Carlton 1K.

During the review of the fleet at Spithead, cn Thursday, the King of Prussia was struck with the appearance of a barge of the Rodney, ship- rigged, ailing about the fleet, and requested her as a pie- sent of the Prince Regent. I i is Royal Highness immediately consented, with his usual condescen- sion; w hen the King, turning round to the Regent nd Emperor, facetiously observed, " 1 hope you two heads of great maritime nations will not be jealous of my nary." The Regent, on taking his departure from the town yesterday, ordered the sum of 501. to be given to the poor debtors confined in the gaol, and 501. lor the poor of each of the parishes of Portsmouth, Portsea, and Gosport.

DOVER, June23.-— About five o'clock this morn- ing, his Majesty's sloop ol war the Rosario arrived in the roads, and fired a salute. Shortly after- wards, the yards of the different vessels of war wer manned— a salute took place throughout the squa- dron, and the launch of the Nymphen frigate was seen advancing towards the harbour, with England's Hero, the Duke of Wellington. At this time the guns upon the heights and frcm the batteries com- menced their thunder, upon the boat leaving the ship; ai. d on passing the pier- heads, his Lordship was greeted with three distinct rounds of cheers frcm those assembled ; but upon his landing at th Crosswall, nothing could exceed the rapture with which his Lordship was received by at least 5,000 persons; and notwithstanding it was so early, parties continued to arrive from town and country every minute. ' Ihe instant his Lordship set his foot on shore, a proposition was made, and instantly adopted, to carry him to the Ship Inn; be was borne on the shoulders of our townsmen, amidst the reiterated cheers of the populace. The Prince of Orange, who arrived this morning, had an inter- view with the Duke of Wellington, who quitted Dover about nine o'clock. BRITISH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY. On Sunday the 19th inst. his Majesty the Em- peror of Russia gave an audience to a Deputation from the British and Foreign Bible Society. The Deputation consisted of Lord Teignmouth, the President, the Bishops of Salisbury, Norwich, and Cloyne, Lord Gambier, the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer, and Wm. Wilberforce, Esq. M. P. Vice- Presidents,- together with the Secretaries ; when Lord Teignmouth presented an Address to the Emperor, and the Rev. Mr. Owen; one of the Se- cretaries, presented his Imperial Majesty, in the name of the Society, with au elegantly bound set of its Annual Reports. His Imperial Majesty ex- pressed his warm attachment to the Institution ; said that he had a similar one in his own country ( an emanation of the British and Foreign Bible Society), of which he was a Member ; and that he had given, and should continue to give it, his pro- tection and support. His Imperial Majesty then took each of the Members of the Deputation very cordially by the hand, and dismissed them with the kindest assurances that he should feel a real pleasure in promoting the object of the Institution to the utmost of his power.— On Tuesday the 21st instant, his Prussian Majesty honoured the same Society by giving audience to a Deputation, con- sisting of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Vice- Presidents, and the Secretaries. His Majesty recognized in the Reports which were presented to him a letter from himself, encouraging the forma- tion of a Bible Society at Berlin, early in the year 1806, both by his Royal sanction, and a liberal donation. His Majesty stated, with much energy and feeling, his conviction that the British and Foreign Bible Society was an Institution admirably calculated t » promote the best interests ol' Chris- tianity, and graciously accepted its Reports.— Thus the Allied Sovereigns, amidst the tide of festivity- and public rejoicing, which has hurried them along during their visit to the capital of the British Empire, have found time and disposition to attend to the concerns of a Society which they consider as calculated, under the blessing of God, to prove an instrument of real good to their re- spective dominions, and to mankind at large. Mr. Kean is engaged to perform twelve nights at Dublin, for which he is to receive 1,0001. and six nights at Liverpool, on a compensation of 5001. The Emperor Alexander, on seeing the crew or the Impregnable receiving their allowance of grog, asked for a glass and drank it, saying, in English, l'ou call this grog: 1 think it veiy good."— He had a smaller quantity poured out ior the Duchess of Oldenburgh, who drank it wit. hr- much good humour.

Allied Sovereigns paid to the Ex- Em press phine, as the discourse ran upon Bonapare, jnn * the extraordinary vicissitudes of his life, a Rus- sian officer expressed his conviction that the de- posed Emperor- wouhl never be utle to bear such •• it- reverse of fortune, but would most probably- close his career, like an ancient Roman, wiih suicide.— " All!

Some travellers, recently arrived In in V. tJlaclia,- have brought au account of a terriLle calamity which has befallen the inhabitants of Oybestein. That district, one of the mcst populous in lbs country, was situated in the neighbouih'cod of several lofty mountains; seme of these were culti- vated to their summits, ar. d the sides w ere e ovticd with the dwellings of the natives; the base of the highest, however, is supposed to have been sapped by the long rains. On the night of the 28th tf April, while the inhabitants, unsuspicious of ssch a calamity, were buried in repose, the peak called the Devil's Neck, descended villi a noise resem- bling an earthquake, and overwhelmed in its pro- gress, houses, forests, and innumerable cattle.— The concussion was so frightful, that the inhabi- tants of the adjacent villages started from their beds, and were seen running quite naked from their habitations to seek safety in the plains. ' 1 he extent of this calamity had not been ascertained, but it was supposed that400 persons had been buried beneath the ponderous fragments, which extendeiL over and covered a mile of ground. ' 1 !>•- y , lVlii\ distress was much increased by thi^ g. oarls which were heard issuing from the^ arhs four days after the avalanche. j Sunday noon, four American prisoners, confined on board the Nassau prison ship, jumped down ou the stage, drew their knives on the sentry, and threw his musket overboard, then seized the jolly- boat, and pulled for the nearest shore, Hoo. ' 1 h. y were instantly followed by the Nassau and other ship's boats, firing at them. Three were wounded} but all four were re- taken. A few days since, as a farmer was in search of a strayed ox on Halsdown, about six miles frcta Exeter, at a little distance from the road, lie dis- covered a man lying in a thicket, almost lifeless, with his bands and legs tied fast together. It appears the poor man ( called G. Blanchfield) was knocked down and robbed by three fcotpads ( sea- men) on Sunday the 5th instant, who having rilled him of all he had, about 51. deliberated on murder- ing him, but afterwards agreed to bind him fast and throw him into a- hedge ; he remained in this cruel situation, without any sustenance, for seven days, and notwithstanding, when the farmer li- berated him he had strength enough left to crawl to Starcross, upwards of five miles distance.—. He says he suffered intolerable distress from the swarms of insects and vermin of the common, which attacked and tormented hiin, without his being able to dislodge them from his body. EXTRAORDINARY PHENOMENON.— In the gar- den of Sir M. Stapylton, Bart, fifteen miles fiom \ oi k, are several peaches and nectarines growing ou the same tree, without either grafting or any other experimental process; which can be satisfactorily attested. The same circumstance occurred in the year 1812. Advertisements, Articles of Intelligence, and Orders for this Paper, are received by the following Agents.
