This Powder is as pleasant iu tbe application, as it is excellent in its effects; it speedily renders the teeth white and smooth, the gums health- ful, red, aud firm ; and bv constant use win preserve them in this desirable state, to the utmost limits oRiuiiiati life. It fortifies the enamel, and prevents the accumulation oftartar: and even where the enamel has been impaired, by the appli- cation of pernicious dentifrice or by any other means, it « ill renovate it in a manner to be credited only by those who ex- perience or witness its efficacy : it gradually but effectually dis- solves tartar which neglect mov have permitted to collect; takes out all daik streaks, or discolouiings of the teeth, which prove so material a draw back to beauty ; prevents those teeth which are alieady partly decayed from ever becoming worse; and cleanses, beautifies, and preserves those that aie sound ; by those means completely superseding the necessity of a den- tist's interference, whose operations, though they may give temporary satisfaction, are often succeeded by the most dis- agreeably consequences; it imparts to the breath the most delightful fragrauce, and to the gums, that florid redness which indicates a healthful state.

The Paris papers of Friday last have arrived.— The Monileur again gives the proceedings of our Parlia- ment relative to the Slave Trade. The annihilation of Bomparte's dynasty, and the restoration of Ihe Bourbons, was, according to Ihe last accounts, universally known in the United States. One of the papers received yesterday, contains the whole of the treaty of peace with France, and hesitates not to pronounce the late events in Europe to be the most wonderful and glorious of auy that ever occurred in the world. Several transports, with the dismounted dragoons and hussars, the sick of the army late tinder Lord Wellington, and Officers from nearly every corps, arrived on Saturday afternoon at Spithead. The direct news from Naples contradicts the stale- ment in private letters from Palermo, of Murat having resigned his Crown. We understand tbat an official communication from Lord Castlereagh has announced to thc Catholics of England, through their Secretary, Mr. Jerniugham, the gratifying intelligence, that his Majesty Louis XVIII. had ordered the restoration of the English and Irish establishments for education in France, with all KHEUMAl'lSMS, PALSIES, and GOUTY AFFEC- TIONS, with their u.- ual concomitants, Spasm, or flying Pains, Flatulency, Indigestion, and general Debility, ] ( originating in whatever source), are relieved and frequently cured by Whitehead's Essence of Mustard Pills, after every ; other means had failed. The Elu. d Essence of Mustard ( used with the Pills, in those o. omplaints where necessary, is perhaps the most active, pene- j trating, and effectual remedy in the world, generally curing the Severest SPRAINS AND BRUISES I11 less than half the time usually token by any other Liniment or Embrocation ; and if used immediately after any accident, it prevents the part turning black.

These establishments con- sist of several extensive Colleges at Paris, one at Douai, and minor schools at Louvain, Angers, Bourdeaux, Toulouse, & c. The late happy change of affairs having rendered it necessary that Government should discharge many of their Clerks, we understand it is their intention to give to each of them a month's salary for every year they have served, as a gratuity for their past services, and to enable them to support themselves and families until other situations offer. The line of telegraphs communicating from the Admiralty lo Sheerness and Deal are to be discontinued directly. Those to Portsmouth and Plymouth will, it is said, be also abolished.— All the liue- of- battle ships that arrived within thc last week from the Mediterra- nean are to be paid off without delay. Expulsion from Parliament.— As the public mind naturally turns to the approaching election of a Member for Westminster, in consequence of the recent events in the House of Commons, it may not be improper to draw attention to thc law on this subject, as laid down in " Roe's Treatise on Elections," the last work which has beeu published 011 this subject. In page 1S2, under the head of Disqualification for Parliament, there is the following passage:— " With respect to disqualification by reason of expulsion from the House, the law and usage of Parliament has vested in the House of Commons an undoubted right to expel from tbeir own body, by their solemn tesolntion, any person, who, being guilty of some infant ilis crime, or corrupt or scan- dalous conduct, has rendered himself unworthy of bis seat in Parliament. It becomes a question whether such a vote of expulsion does or does not disqualify tbe person expelled from being again elected. In the ease ot Middlesex, 1769, the proceedings were as follows:— 3d Feb. Mr. Wilkes was expelled the House for being the author of a libel. At thc election to supply his vacancy, he was again elected and returned. — 17th Feb. Upon his return tbe House resolved, that having been in that Session expelled the House, he was incapable of being elected to set ye in that . Parliament, aud that tiis election was void, and ordered a new writ. Mr. Wilkes was again elected and returned, aud the House again avoided his election aud ordered a new writ. Mr. Wilkes was a third time elected anil returned. Upon this latter return, the House resolved, that his election anil return were null and void ; and Mr. Lnttrell having been also a candidate nt the latter election, the House resolved that he ought to have been elected, and caused the return to be amended by tbe insertion of his name instead of that of Mr. Wilkes. A Petition was presented hy certain freeholders of Middlesex against the amendment, but, after hearing the matter, the House resolved that Mr. Luttrell was d House afterwards considered their Resolution of the 17th Feb. as unfit to remain 011 their Journals, ami by a Resolu- tion of the 3d of May, 1782, ordered it to be expunged, as being subversive of the lights of the whole body of WEDNESDAY, JULY IS. Paris Papers of Saturday last have been received. The King of Prussia, with the whole of his family, left that city on the preceding day. Chateaubriand, the well- known novel- wri'er, has been appointed French Ambassador to Sweden. He has been very active in supporting the rights of the Bourbons, since their restoration ; and to this circumstance, more than to any aptitude for diplomacy, he probably owes his elevation. Thc French prisoners of war continue to claim the strongest attenlion of tlieir Government. In the new organization of the army, a certain number of appoint- ments is to be reserved for the officers returning from captivity, and the lists are not to be finally closed until they are all restored to their country. This is an act of justice, and may it prove to be one of policy ! may it reconcile these fierce spirits to the present order of things! and may it convince them and the rest of their countrymen, the measures of the existing Go- vernment are studiously directed to preserve the domes- tic and external tranquillity of the country I The Gazelle of Genoa states, that Charles IV. has demanded ofthe Allied Sovereigns to be replaced upon the Throne of Spain. The measures of Ferdinand VII. who might with so much ease have secured to himself the appellation of the Beloved, appear daily of a more extraordinary complexion. Bv a Decree of the 17th ult. he re- establishes the old law which required the Cadets in every branch of the military service to exhibit proofs of nobility 1 The army having enjoyed, by a Decree of the Cortes, an entire exemption from this antiquated restriction, is not likely, we imagine, to receive his Majesty's enlightened Decree with much satisfaction. What would the Erapecinado, the Medico, and the many other brave men to whom Spain owed her most honourable triumphs, have said to a law forbidding them to save Iheir country, without a diploma from the Heralds' College ? The Charybdis sloop, which arrived at Portsmouth on Saturday, met the expedition from Botirdeatix, half way over the Atlantic. An article in a Boston paper, dated Quebec, May 27, mentions the arrival at the latter place of the Dover English troop- ship, No. 13, as the precursor of the fleet. Major- General Coa.- au was on board as passenger. Colonel Lewis and Major Madison were allowed by Sir G. Prevost to leave Quebec on parole for the United States; in return Tor which eourtesy, added to the preceding release of General Winder, it'is stated in thc National Intelligencer, that " the President has given directions for the discharge, on parole, of ALL the British Officers now in custody as hostages, with permission for them to proceed to Canada.'" On the 6th instant, his Majesty's ship Lightning arrived at Cork, having under couvoy 11 transports, with the Sd ( or Queen's), 20th, 48lh, and 2J battalion of the 53d regiments, from Bourdeaux. The letters from Ireland, received on Saturday, mention that another Bank had stopped payment in the province of Ulster, and that commercial confidence was so much shaken, that bills with the best persoual securities were no longer negociable. A Dublin Paper of Saturday last says, that all idea of an Aggregate Meeting of the Catholics is given up. The Slave Trade.— We are happy to observe that the generous and ardent impulse given in London by tbe friends of the Abolition of tbe Slave Trade, has produced a corresponding effect throughout the empire. In the remot- est parts of Scotland and Ireland, resolutions have been agreed tw nnd Petitions prepared to iuireat of Ihe Crown and tbe Parliament the most efficient measures for the total extinction of this disgraceful and atrocious traffic. There is 110 dmlbt that the voice of the British nation will be as powerful upou this occasion as unanimity, supported by rectitude and sensioility, can render it; aud us tbe French press gives a fair access for our appeals lo tbe bosoms of the French people, by translating fully antl unreservedly, the discussions in the British Parliament, and at our chief public meetings, upon tbe subject, the Moniteur being most conspicuous in litis honourable system of copying, we trust and hope tbat neither the example nor the represent- ations will be unproductive of that conversion to the cause of humanity which we should ot this lime conceive lo be not only easy and voluntary, but, from ils extreme facility, lo be necessary aud irresistible. An application to the Pope, by Address or otherwise, would probably obtain a declaration of the criminal and unchristian nature of Ihis odious commerce, which, seconded as it would be by the zealous enforcement of the subordinate Clergy in the Catholic countries, aud by the religious respect Sc obedience of tbe better part of the Community, must soon overcome tbe interested opposition of those who could only plead the sanction of perverse custom in support of guilty gain. It should he recollected that slavery of no gentle nature was once prevalent in Europe, till it was abolished by the au- thority of the Pope and tbe subordinate Clergy, as inconsistent with Christianity. The Abolition was a work | 5 uitt Iitdi. er, tiic of time and difficulty; being " long and obstinately resisted, my elected. ihe us it is uow, by personal and unfeeling interest. tK" 1 ' The whole of Spanish America has shewn itselfextremely favourable to the Abolition of the Slave Trade. The new Governments of La Plata, Venezuela, aud Chili, have prohibited the importation and traffic of slaves, in tbe most electors of the Kingdom.' This latter Resolution must be | rigid manner. They have even gone further: Chili, on Ihe regatded as declaring, that no inherent disqualification is created by expulsion from tile House, independent of the cause of that expulsion, which may or may not operate to disqualify in future, according to its nature. Hence, although it is in the discietion of the House to expel, and 10 repeat their expulsion, if they think it expedient so to do, yet the law does not preclude the electors from electing antf returning the person expelled, if they shall think him worthy of their choice." IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF COMMONS— TUESDAY, JULY 12. O11 thc further consideration of the Repoit of the Poor Relief Bill, Mr. WESTERN thought this measure would be productive of very great inconvenience to Magistrates aud Parish Officers, and of very little, or 110 advantage to poor persons. He moved, that the report should be taken into further consideration this day three months. — Upon which the House divided— For tbe amendment of Mr. Western 21— against it 30— majority 9. Tne SPEAKER stated, tbat the bill bad been so altered backwards and forwards, that it would be impossible to proceed on the amendments at that time. The Report was then ordered to be taken into consideration to- morrow. The Hon. Mr. BENNETT presented a Petition from certain Post- horse Keepers in Shropshire, praying to be relieved fiom certain penalties to which they are liable.— Ordered to lie on the table. WEDNESDAY, JULY 16. The Poor Relief Bill passed through the Committee, and the repoit was receivtd, aud ordered to be taken into further consideration 011 Friday. The Hon. Mr. BENNETT asked whether any estimate had been made of the amount of the expense of a cottage, or palace, nr whatever name it was to be called by, notv erecting in Wind. sor Park? Not being Satisfied with tbe answer oflhe Chancellor ot the Exchequer, he moved that an estimate of the expense be laid befurethe House. — Mr. TIERNEY moved as an amendment that the plan of the building, as well as the estimate?, be . aid befoie the House.— Mr, VANSITTART objected to the amendment, aud moved that the won! " plan" should be omitted.— Mr. TIERNIY replied, tbat all he wished to know was, what was the natiue of the building to be erected.— The House then divided upun the amendment, when tbe numbers were— ayes 9— noes 43.— The original motion was tben carried without a division. llth of October, istt, annulled the Slave Trade, and | further decreed theparto lihre, ttiat is, that the children of , ail slaves, born after thai date, should be free. Slaves i belonging to another country, and passing through Chili, i are also free at tbe end of six months.— The New Assembly of Buenos Ayres met on the lst of January, 1313, and 011 tho 2d of February declared that every slave that should hereafter tread ils territory was from lhat moment free. It also decreed the offspring of all slaves to be free, arranged plans for their education, aud assigned thein territorial property. Caraccas, t hat may be called a tropical country, has done Ihe same. THURSDAY, JULY 14. Paris Papers of Tuesday last have been received.— The late Empress of France Is gone to take the baths of Aix, in Savoy, It is probable lhat her journey may not end there. The Prince of Parma, her son, remains at Schoenbrun. A considerable misunderstanding has broken out between the Pope and Murat. The Paris Papers expect disturbances in Spain, that kingdom being divided into three parties— the party of the Cortes— of the decided Royalists, or Ferdinand the Seventh— and the party of Charles the Fourth, which does not regard the abdication of that Monarch as valid, having been extorted by force. Yesterday morning Albinia, Countess of Bucking- hamshire, gave a superb dejeunc aud balle masquse, 111 honour ofthe Duke of Wellington, at Hoburt House. The Address to thc Prince Regent from the Univer- sity of Oxford 011 the Restoration of Peace, was pre- sented to his Royal Highness yesterday at Carltoil- house, by Lord Grenville ( the Chancellor) and Ihe Delegates from the University. The Princess Charlotte of If ales.— An extraordi- nary event, in which, not only Ihis illustrious young personage, but the country at large are deeply con- cerned, has occurred within the last two days. Grieved as we are to detail such unpleasant facts— it is a duty we owe lo our numerous readers not to nith- hofd them; and, therefore, give the following statements and observations on the subject as they have appeared in the papers of this day. The Morning Chronicle states thc affair as follows :—" It is perfectly known, that tbe intended marriage between the Princess Charlotte of Wales and Ibe Hereditary Priiiee of Orange was broken off in consequence of tho dread which ber Royal Highness felt of being tirken out of the cnunfry at a time wheti considerations of the highest Importance demanded her continuance in it. Froin the time of tins breaking off this negotiation, attempts have been inces- santly made, if not to retiew ii, at Icasl to shew the high offence she bad given; and ber Roval Highness has suffered the most cruel agitation, although tier health was so serinnsly affected as lo demand the most lenient atten- tion, and particularly that her mind should be kept from harassing disturbance. Her physicians had, some time ago, giveu a written certificate thai the complaint of her lameness required sea- hulhiiig and sea- air; aud we hzve every reason to believe lhat I his cei tificate was laid before Ihe Prince Regent some davs ago. " On Tuesday evening his Ruyal Highness tbe Prince Regent entered Warwick House, ami, without any previous notice, informed the Princess Charlotte tbat MI'ss Knight antl all her household, as well as all tbe servants attendTif upon bet-, were dismissed— aud that her Royal Highness must forthwith take, tip her residence in Carlton House, and from thence to Cimtford Lodge, where the Counter Dowager of Rosslvu, Ihe Connies* of Ilehesicr, il, e two Miss Coales, and Miss Campbell, were actually in tbe next room, in readiness to wait upou ber; and this intimation was made in terms of unusual severity, as it was accom- panied by a declaration that she was to be under tbeir sole supei- inteu, lance ; and tbat she was neither permitted to receive visits, or letters. In this embarrassing situation and uuder the agony of despair, she ran out of Warwick House, threw herself into a hackney coach, and drove to Counaught- place, the residence of her mother Tbe Prin- cess of Wales was absent, but a Groom was dispatched to Blackheath, to request her immediate return to town. The Groom met her Royal Highness on tbe way, and delivered the P rincess Charlotte's note, acquainting her with the event; upon which the Princess of Wales drove to tbe Parliament House, ami eagerly inquired for Mr Whitbread who was absent— aud for Earl Grey, who bud left town several days before.. She then went 011 to her own house at Couuanght- place, where her daughter communicated the particulars we have stated : anil where Mr. Brougham who had beeu senl for to Mr. Michael Angelo Taylor's, bad arrived. " The flight of Ihe Princess from Warwick House was soon made known to Ihe Prince Regent, ot the Duke of York's, w here a great parly were assembled. Notice of it was also sent to the Queen, who had a card party, and which she instantly left. A Council was called', and Lord Eltcnborough and Lord Eldou we're consulted. Rumour says, I hat a Habeas Corpus was to be issued 10 bring back ttie person of her Royal Highness to Carlton House. But the Duke of York, ami three of the Prince Regent's people, went lo Connaught House, aud slated lo her Royal High- ness ber father's commands to conduct her back. Mr. Brougham had previously acquainted her Royal Highuessj that by the laws of tbe land she must obey her father's command; antl when the DukeofYork gave ber a* assur- ance that she should uO't be immured, nor treated with tho severity which had been threatened, she consented lo return with him; and accordingly, at a little past three o'clock yesterday morning, her Royal Highness was conveyed to Carlton House, where she now remains—. all tbe persons by whom she has been served being temoved from attendance 011 her person, except Mrs. Lewis, who had followed her to Con naught- House with her night Clothes, antl who was permitted to return with her in the carriage, along with the DukeofYork" 8 The Courier of this evening saysWe should have purposely abstained ( from motives of delicacy, which we are sure all our readers would have approved) from latin" any notice ofthe unfortunate occurrence which look place 011 Tuesday evening, if it had not been for lhe above most malicious paragraph in tbe Morning Chronicle of ( his day. " It is an absolute falsehood tbat the intended marriage between the Princess Charlotte of Wales and Ihe Hereditary Prince of Orange was broken off in consequence of tbe dread which her Royal Highness fell of being laken out of this country— an arrangement having been made ou this subject, which was in all respects perfectly satisfactory to her Royal High uess, aud acknowledged to be so some iiine before the rupture of the intended marriage took place. — It is likewise false tbat from the time of the breaking offlhis negociation there bad been any attempts to renew" it. We are satisfied that 110 intimation bad ever been made to the Princess Charlotte on tbe subject, from the time of Ihc departure of the Prince of Orange from I bis country • and that her Royal Highness could nol have the leust ground to believe ( however the rupture of u marriage so desirable might have been regretted), tbat there was anv intention in any quarter to oblige her to renew it. " VVe believe it to be perfectly true, that iu consequence of a variety of circumstances, which had come to the knowledge of his Royal Highness, be had taken the deter- mination of bringing the Princess Charlotte into his own house, aud of making a change in the female part of her establishment. " VVe beg to know what plocc is so proper for the residence of a daughter as her father's own house, and if we have any thing to regret upon this subject, it is tbat this measure was not taken some time ago. Many eviU ami inconveniences which have occurred might have been in great degree obviated by this proper aud salutary measure. We are confident likewise, that it will be universally felt tbat more proper persons could not have heen put about her Royal Highness than those which ure stated to have been selected by the Prince Regeui— persons wholly uncon- nected with any political party, aud two of them kno. vn to have been destined for this important service by the King himself. " It is not true, that the first intimation of Ibe propriety of her Royal Highness'* residing in future at Cut lion House was made on Tuesday evening; it had been made before, and when that intimation was renewed tut that evening, it was done with nil thai kindness ami affection for which Ihe Prince has been universally distinguished iu his treat inent, not only of his daughter, but of all his family. Were il necessary, to appeal 10 auy person for ' he truth of this assertion, we ntighl appeal to 1 lie Bishop of Salisbury, who was present when the intimation was made, and whu, we believe, has expressed his sense of 1 he paternal kindness of ihe Prince's conduct. And so effectual did the Prince's admonition appear to have benji oil the Princess's initio, that when his Royal II iglmess proposed lo introduce lo I no Princess Charlotte, Ladies Rosslyn and I lehcslor aud Mrs. Campbell, her Royal Highness only pleaded a wish to rt tiie for a few minutes to compose herself before the introduc- tion took place. " Her Royal Highness retired, and whilst the Prince w is engaged iu conversation witli Miss Knight, the Princess Ch. it iotte proceeded in a hackney coach, as bus been stated, to Connaught- Houso. As soon as liie discovery uf her departure was made, the Prince sent for bis Ministers, 10 consult them upon tlie measures proper to be adopted. A Council was held at Ihe Foreign Office aud also at Carlton House. Bnt it is perfectly unfounded, that any forms of law were resorted to, or were iu the contemplation of any one. " On Ihe arrival of tbe Princess Charlotte at Conmiught House, she found the Princcss of Wales absent, but Mr. Sicard, ttie Steward, instantly dispatched a messenger to tier, who met her on tlie road from Blackheath Her Royal Highness iu the first instance proceeded lo the House of Commons, lo speak lo Mr. Whitbread or Mr. Ponsonby, and not finding lliem there, called at Mr. Michael AngcloTaylor's, and carried Mr Brougham buck with her to Coiinaught- House. " in tlie mean lime ihe first step taken by the Prince was to send the Bishop of Salisbury lo the Princess Char- lotte, lo remonstrate with her. Tbe Duke of York soon after arrived with a written message from the Prince, couched in the most kind and affectionate terms, ami her Royal Highness then, without any ftirlh-? r reluctance, con- sented lo pnrceed to Carlton House. On her arrival there she was received hy the Prince without auy expostulation or harshness, antl recommended to retire to rest, 111 order to compose hermiud. Her lloyal Highness passed the night at Carlton- House. Yesterday morning the Bisbopof Salisbury visited her, and she expressed to turn, 111 the most open and candid manner, her perfect convict ion of the error slot had committed, aud her anxious wish to see tier Royal Father, ami express to liim that conviction. Her Roval Highness accordingly, after the Prince had received lite Address from Ihe University of Oxford, bad a long and affecting interview with her father; and we feel qtnie assured that the happiest effects will result from 11 " The operations in Carlton House Gardens, for the intended Court Fete, it is said, are ordcied to be suspended.

We have great pleasure in staling lhat the account copied from a la e Brighton Paper, of the benevolent Mr. Webb having been conveyed to a receptacle for lunatics, is positively coplradrcicd by his brother; who . states the whole to be the fabri- cation of some disappointed miscreants, who had endeavoured t< abuse hi> bounty. On Friday lest, a very respectable meeting of the Mayor, Aldermen, Burgesses, and inhabitants of this town and neighbourhood, was held at Ihe Guildhall, in pursuance of a Requisition, for Ihe purpose of con sidering of an Address lo his Royal Highness the Prince Regent, to congratulate him on the Successes of thc Arms of his Majesty and his Allies, and on the Restora- tion of Peace to Europe j and, iti pursuance of another Requisition, it was agreed to take into Consideration at the same meeting t . e propriety of petitioning both Houses of Parliament for ti; e Abolition of the Slave Trade.- W COUPLAND, Esq. the Mayor, took the Chair, and said, that in consequence of a Requisition signed by many very respectable names, he had convened the present meeting, and was ready to attend to such observations or propositions as any gentleman present was inclined to make 5 upon which EDWARD BURTON* Esq. rose, and said— By the permission of Divine Providence, we are now enabled to contemplate and enjoy that great object, a safe and honourable Peace, which our venerable Sovereign ( whose public character has heen equally distinguished for an ardent love of our free and happv constitution, us his private life has been justly celebrated for every virtue which can belong to a man) failed to see fulfilled. In pursuing this object, be has been overwhelmed in afflictions, and amidst millions who participate in his former endeavours, he remains with the few, who are ignorant of these great events. But let us Not forget his gray head, who, all dark in affliction, " Is deaf to the tale of our victories won, " And to sounds the most dear to paternal affection, The shouts of his people applauding his Son." This object our two great statesmen Mr. Pitt and Mr Fox, li. itb when in and out of power, ever sought and laboured to bring about; but they paid the debt of nature, without being able to see it earned into effect. This object has been permuted to our Prince Regent, aided hy wisdom in Council and valour in arms, by sea and land, thus happily, gloriously, nnd honourably to bring to pass, 111 these our d tys ; and although we have been so highly favoured as to be ignorant ot the ravages, the devastations, the miseries, and the horrors attendant on the seat of war, within the circuits of 1 his happy island, the asylum of banished kings, princes, and princesses ; of exiled nobility, gentry, and clergy ; yet, the privations and sacrifices we nave submitted to, aud the general participation with which we sympathize iu others* woes, make it tilting and becoming in OR to testify our joy and thanksgiving for this great blessing of peace, and which bus heen manifested throughout these kingdoms bv testimonies of approbation with uncommon satisfaction and gratitude. Iu contemplating this object, we have deeply to regret that the war between this country and the United States of America still continues, preventing the happiness resulting from a geneial peace throughout the world. It ought, however, to be remembered, as remarked by the Speaker of the House of Commons ut the close of the last session ot Parliament, and repeated bv our Prince al the opening of the preseut session,— lhat " It is known to the world, that this country was not fhe aggiessor in this war — It is still for us to hope, that the same wise and moderate councils nnd valour iu arms, ( the latter guided by our truly gallant countryman, the son of my old friend the worthy Baronet now present, whom we so lately hailed within our walls, and w ho is lo command, ; f necessary, an expedition across the Atlantic,) may be permitted to accomplish what our Prince has observed, " a Conviction ou them that their real interest in the issue of the late great contest must be the same us our Own"— and finally, a conclusion of peace between the two countries t he Prince Regent having deemed it proper to make a pub!.* k Thanksgiving for the late great mercies bestowed upon us, the same has been solemnly performed It only now remains, t hat the people close aud seal their sense of these benefits by cordially uniting to express their general feelings 011 the restoration of peace This you have evinced by your requisition to our worthy Chief Magistrate, who, in conformity thereto, lias convened this meeting. To endea deavonr to fulfil your wishes I shall n<> w proceed to re ail an addiess, which I hope will be found so entirely unexception able and congenial to your inclinations, thai I trust it will meet with your unanimous concurrence and approbation. The Address having heen read, Mr. BURTON moved that it he signed by thc Mayor, in the name ofthe met ting, and thai he be request* d <>> present cr transmit the same. THOMAS LLOYD, Ist;. secoiid d the motion of Mr. JSnrion, which pass, d tmaniniou* iw— The Mayor then observed, hat. 11 pursuance of " another Requisition, he • as ready to hear whatever any gentleman might have to say respecting the Slave Trade •; when the J Rev. EDWARD BATHER rose, and said— Mr. MAYOR— Icon Id v^ ry much have wished that it had 1 fallen into abler , hands than mine, to submit to the con- sideration of this meeting the motion which I have beeu desired to propose: 1 could have wished lhat some gentle- man more immediately connected with tiie town than 1 am, anil possessing weight and influence in it, had brought the question forward. Nevertheless, Sir, ( as [ have the honour of h seat iu your common council) 1 suppose I shall not have intrudetfmyscif unlawfully into this assembly; and I hope, for the same reason, that I have not stepped very far out of my place in addressing you, easy as it would have been for others to have spoken, who would have been far better entitled to be heard. I have, Sir, to jYropose to this meeting, that Petitions he presented to the two Houses of Parliament on the subject of ihe African Slave Trade, expressive of our regret, that the exertions Of the British Minister to obtain ity immediate abolition should have failed, and praying that those Ho- I nourable Houses would continue, as they have begun, to j take such measures as shall seem fitting to their wisdom, fo procure, as " speedily as may be, its final aud compleat I abandonment. There'can be'ho occasion, 1 erfneeive, that I should enter into any detail of the paiticulars of this nefarious traffick, as It was wont formerly, to the tjisgrace of this nation, to be carried on hy Englishmen; and as, it is to be expected, it will now be carried 011 by France. Neither, Sir, can it he needful that this audience should learn from me to look upon it with abhorrence. ' I am pervaded that with respect to the System ilsylf there can be but one opinion and one feeling here; audi trust there is but one throughout the country. After so much light has been thrown upon thc subject, through the indefatigable labours of the friends of the oppressed, everty one riiust have heard enough: or did we even know nothing of the fraudulent and cruel manner in which the wretched African has been either decoyed or dragged froin his'nat- jve land ; nothing of the horrors ofthe Middle Passage; nothing of his condition when he has at lengt h arrived at l lie miserable liou* e of his bondage ; still, Sir, I do suppose the bare mention of the one horrible fact would he sufficient. It must, Sir, be enough to awaken our utmost indignation and difgust, to consider but for a mo- ment that man is to he exposed to sale like a beast in the market, by his worse than brutalized fellow- creature. But, Sir, in proportion to Our abhorrence of this iniqui- tous commerce, and in proportion to the exultation w hich, doubtless, we all fell, when, by a public act of the legisla- ture, it ceased to be the scourge of Africa, and the shame and sin of England, and the great council of the nation called it by its true name Felony;—- in proportion to th , t must be our gri rise to the report: but whatever that gentleman might have said, was only his individual opinion, audit could not implicate the general question: and however fervid the expressions of that j gentleman might have been, het. usted they would be freely | excused, when it was considered that he had passed some ; time in the West Indies, and had been an eye- witness of i those cruelties, which almost exceeded the belie*" of persons at a distance. The Archdeacon said, that England had a right, however, to hold a high toue, both in point of information and of pow er. It had been elegantly said— " That Britannia needs no bulwark, " No towers upon the steep ; " Her march is o'er lhe mountain wave, (( Her home is 011 ihe deep." And was it not melancholy, he asked, to think that in this her march over her. native element, she must be disgusted by the sight of floating cargoes of misery? that what ( was thus beautifully termed " her home1' should be pol- luted by the blood of the unoffending Africans?— He concluded by saying, that some expression of our feelings was due in gratitude for the unparalleled blessings this country had experienced. That our reprobation of this j wicked traffic might have had an influence in the milder ! judgments we had undergone; in the comparative pros- perity indeed wit h which these islands had ridden out that storm, in which so many other nations had been over- whelmed." The Rev. John PALMER spoke as follows: Mr. MAYOR, Aldermen, and Townsmen, I rise to bow wilh profound respect before an assembly so truly respect- able, convened 011 such an occasion, and to open my mouth in favour of the oppressed Africans.— This I do with the greatest freedom, because the same desire must be felt by every heart, and we are come to a point where Churchmen and Dissenters cordially meet. Sir, there is an infinite variety in the works of our benign Creator; but who among men has power to make " oue hair on his head white or black ?" or who would be so weak as to dislike or injure another, because he differs from him in colour?— Why then, should the African be oppressed and injured because an allwise God has given him a black skin ? When the same God informs us that " He liath made of one blood all nations of men to dwell on the earth," and that we u shall call every man brother."— He, the Divine Legislator, hath ordained that " he that stealeth a man and sellcth him, shall die. 1' Our British Senate have, in imitation of the great Lawgiver, decreed the same thing. — Let respectful and loyal Petitions be presented.— We are reminded six times in the course Of 24 hours, by the chimes of your venerable Abbey, " That Britannia rules the waves— " That Britons never will be slaves Let it then appear that as Britons they never will join in or consent to any measures that will enslave others. Mr. WICK STEED, addressed thc Mayor in nearly the following words : Permit me, Sir, to offer my congratulations to this As- sembly, upon the unanimity which prevails throughout the Empire, in regard to the great and interesting questions which you have called upon us to fake into our considera- tion this day— It appears to me impossible to contemplate the attitude which Britain has maintained during the last six years— the noble principles she has avowed, and the dignified conduct she has pursued, without feeling the natural sentiment of pride in the consciousness that this Britain is our native land. In my humble opinion, nothing can be more truly glorious, than the part she has acted in the great political Drama which has just been closed. But in proportion to our admiration of the exalted and disinter- ested views which have governed her general conduct since the peace of Amiens, must be our anxiety to prevent auy stain from being fixed on her reputation, by a departure from such views in any particular instance. No one is disposed to doubt the ability, the address, or the good faith of the Nobleman who negotiated the late Treaty with France. The concurrent testimony of those best qualified to judge, proves that he is entitled to our thanks, for having brought to a successful issue, in all points but one, the difficult and delicate negotiation with which he was charged Nor can there be any objection to admit, that on this one point ( 1 mean the Slave Trade) Fiance probably would not allow any power to dictate to her the line sbe shonld adopt: Aud a positive and peremptory tone might not only have failed of obtaining the point in question, but might have excited a degree of irritation, which would have had a prejudicial influence upon the other important matters in discussion. But, conceding all this, it does not follow that Great Britain, who had been twenty years struggling for a victory over ihe avarice and insensibility of a number of her own people, should have been made party to such an article in the Treaty, as that which relates to the Slave Trade:— It does not follow, because France cannot feel or comprehend the'impiety of declaring a tiaffie to be repugnant to the principles of natural justice, and yet stipulating for the power of carrying 011 such traffic;—! say, Sir, it does not follow, that Great Britain should set Iter hand and seal to such a flagrant and wilful abomination. Sir, it is impos- sible for anv man, with right feelings, to read the clause in question without being extremely shocked by it. To allow -^ explicitly and unreservedly to allow— that a given line of conduct is repugnant to morality, that it is « violation of the law of God written upon the hearts of nil men— and yet ii: ihe same breath to bargain for the right of pursuing such conduct, appears to me beyond all precedent mon- strous. What, Sir, if the French Negotiator had taken the Decalogue in his hand, a d after acknowledging thai it was unlawful to commit murder and robbery and adultery, and all the other crimes therein forbidden, he had at the same time stipulated for a right to break all the commandments for the space of five years— must Great Britain of necessity have subscribed to such a claim ?— Yet where is tlie differ- ence ?—! he case cannot be aggravated by associating wiih it any thing more atrocious. For lo grant France permis- sion tocai ry ou the Slave Trade, is to do what in ns lies to legalize her claim lo commit every species of euormity among our unoffending fellow- creatures of Africa Nor is ihe absurdity of this Article inferiorto its atrocity; for such a bargain is void by the very terms of it. There can he no moral obligation to perform an act which is forbidden by a higher obligation— there can be no binding promise to do a base and inhuman deed. it was therefore not less preposterous than abominable to introduce this offensive and presumptuous article. To do what France has obtained our permission to do, no country upon God's earth has any right; and sad it is that any country should possess the uitl and power.— Whv was not this matter reserved for the ensuing Congress ?— why not give the possessions but reserve the question of the traffic? — why should Britain, who has made such strenuous ef- forts, both at home and abroad, for the abolition of this Trade, he the./ ftsf to allow its renewal? Surely we might have been spared this sad degradation— this grievous dereliction of principle, at ihe end of a Treaty, which boasts, and justly boasts, of having made many sacrifices for the sake of principle. But, Sir, I would not thus pourtray the article in question, if all hope were gone of having il cancelled, or rendered of no effect. I have it upon the authority of a Gentleman, on whom 1 can rely, that ihe Emperor Alexander, in a conver- sation with Mr. Clarkson, declared that if Great Britain came forward at the ensuing Congress in ihe way he ex- pected, her influence would be irresistible, and that he would back her with all his power We have then, Sir, every encouragement to proceed in our efforts. Sir, we are not meddling with » hat we do uot understand; we are not disputii g a » out the boundaries of empires, the propriety of equivalents, ihe settlement of doubtful claims, or any of the other matters of merely political arrangement, w hich are adjusted in this Treaty with France. These things would indeed be out of our province, and are properly left to those who better understand them. But wc concern ourselves solely with a plain, intelligible proposition, upon which every mail is, or ought to he, competent lo give an opinion ; in w hich every man is, or. ought to be, deeply interested. The Honour of oil 1 Country is[ at stake— t he Cause f H, uma- ' nity is at stake— Ihe lnt< rests ot Virtue ami true Religion are deeply implicated in this questicn: and every man who ha3 a licait to feel, & a tongue to give utterance to I116 feelings, is bound in duty to enter his solemn protest against that hideous sacrifice of principle, which has forever disgraced a Treaty, that tnighl otherwise have been one of the proudest monuments of England's glory. I11 France probably, Sir, such language as 2 have used would not be tolerated. And what is the state of France ? All accounts agree in representing it as at the lowest stage of moral debasement, almost destitute of a moral sense— and the article of theTreaty, which we are condemning, i* a confirmation of the fact. Would we preserve lo England her proudest superiority— would we sustain her noblest prerogative, that of teaching other nations how 10 live virtuously and die righteously— we must carefully cherish the moral sensibilities of the people— we must not check, but encourage, under proper regulations, their ardour and eagerness to deliver their sentiments upon such or<* asions as the present. And fear not their excesses: If right sentiments are fostered and cultivated, they will of them- selves impose a Check npon auy tendency to effervescence. Mv. Wicksteed concluded by moving that the warmest thanks of this meeting be given to Wm. Wilberforce, Esq. the father of this great cause, for the uniform zeal, ability, aud perseverance he has during so long a period displayed, iu endeavouring to effect the entiife Abolition of the Slave Trade. Mr. BACK seconded the motion, which also passed unanimously. Thanks were then voted to the Mayor* to the Mover and Seconder of the Address, to the Mover and Se- conder of the Petitions, and to the Rev. Archdeacon Corbett.— For ihe Address, Petitions, and Resolutions of the Meeting, see Advert.

The Earl of Bi idgewater then rose, and said, that though the motion he was about to propose was rather out of time> being after dinner, yet as, owing to the particular circum- stances which gave rise to it, the preseut . one could never be considered a precedent by which to be regulated on any future occasion, he trusted it would meet the cordial approbation ofthe Company, he therefore begged leave to propose Lord Hill as a member of the Society ; he could have wished to have proposed him as an honorary member, but Lord Hill being a landed proprietor within the county, that could not be done consistent with the rules of the Society.— This motion was received with great applause, and it is scarcely necessary to say, was unanimously carried — The Vice- President then read a letter which he had received from John Kynaston Powell, Esq. expressing his regret that he should not be able to attend, 011 account of his having a party to dinner thai day at bis own house, and afterwards proposed the healths of the county members, J. Kynaston Powell, and J. Cotes, Esqrs.; 3 limes 3; Mr Cotes returned thanks.— The Vice- President then observed, that as there were several cups remaining undisposed of, he should propose the health of Sir Robert Lawley, Bart, the Yice- Presideut for the ensuing year, with hopes that by his exertions they would pass into the hands of members of the Society ; 3 limes 3— Sir Robert Lavvley, in a very neat speech, returned thanks for the honour they had done him, not only by drinking his health in such a flattering manner, but also in electing him theiiVice- President for the ensuing year; an honour to which, he said, he could not aspire, but being elected, he could not but express his attachment to the county of Salop in general, and to the agricultural interests of il in particular; and that he would endeavour to promote those interests bv every means in his power ; he concluded by sincerely hoping that ihe Cutis unclaimed at Ihe present meeting would pass through his hands to the members of the Society.— J C. Pelham, Esq. and Fox- hunting; 3times3; Mr. Pelham returned thanks— W. E. Jeffrey*, Esq.

Mill); 3 times 3— The Proposer of the Society, W. Lloyd, Esq. of Aston ( by Mr. Egerton Jeffreys); 3 times 3. Sir Robert Lawley again rose, and said, that having had the pleasure of drinking Lord Clive's health as Vice- President of the Society, he would now propose his health as a man from whom the County hatl great expectations, and to whom they might look forward as a firm and sincere friend lo its agricultural interests ; 3 times 3; Lord Clive returned thanks.— Our next merry meeting ( by the Earl of Bridgewater—' The inseparable Confidence of Landlord aud Tenant ( by W. Childe, Esq.); & c. & c. to that Ccienial Sovereign, wh^ e righteous laws are of tF. o same paramount authority to ai! the. several nations of Earth. It is, 2d! y, by necessary implication, to deny the existence of any common lies of mental sympr-* hy and kindness, by means of which the Inhabitants of all the various climates of the Globe are designed, by Divine goodness aud wisdom, to beat, all times reciprocally united and endeared— And it is Gdly, directly to afijim, that w henever that infinitely the' greatest all political perver- si( ns and anomalies— the trehr. herons cnthraliom and tyrannous oppression of a People bv the natural Guardians of thpir freedefiff and their kr/ pprnrss, shall have irremediably taken place, thft Governments of other more fortunate and enlightened States ate perfectly at libeity to, tolerate, and even formally to sanction such an intercourse between their own subjects, and the Authors ami tbe Instruments ofthe crimes and miseries alluded to ; as, during its continuance, most of necessity be uniformly characterized by an equal tendency *<> and facilitate the pract^ es of guilt, and io - prolan*" tth'X aggravate the sufTe. rings of innocence. Considering, then, the former of the two questions above suggested, as disposed of; our next enquiry is, how far can we reasonably ascribe to the Government of nor own Conntiy that diiect or in litect cotitroul. ovnr the political regulations of other European Powers, wjiich is necessary- tti the accomplishment of jis benevolent intentions toward fhef t' » o long outraged Aborigines of Africa. • To which most impoitant question a satisfactory answer from an individual in private life is; Certainly, not be expected. Ail, therefore, that I slial! presume to offer upon this head will be comprised in the following brief remarks. First, [ shall observe, that if ( as we tru^ t is really the ea? e) we be fully warranted in believing, tint the respective Governments of Austria, Russia, Prussia, and Holland are. inclined to co operate cordially with our own in . this mo^ t Christian cans*-, tbere will remain, confessedly, bnt one f'* u- ropean Power who^ e political conduct, With relation to the Slave Trade, it will hot be very easy for us effectually Ur control]}. When however I say this, I certainly esteem it neoe^ sarv forme to add ( ai the expression of my real and deliberate, judgment on the subject), that neither to the Government of France, nor to that of anv other less powerful State, wiil an enlightened English Ministry ever think of using language in the le* st allied to menace, as long as there shall remain any reasonable ground of hope, that a satisfactory a- ijusu m^ nt and termination of this momentous question may be effected by means of tin appeal, either to the paramount obligation" of religions and moral doty, or to motives and considerations of a less dignified and Christian nature. And let it not escape our memories when adverting to this most important and interesting topick, tftat however lax may be, confesedfiy, n' tbe present moment, the general tone- both ot religious principle and of mora! sentiment in France; yet is it not. wetru- t, beyond the1 limits of reasonable hope, that the time is not remote, when the same peculiarly anient and susceptible temperament of mind, which has so often led her Soldiers- successfully to emulate our valour in the field of Battle, will likewise prompt ber Legislators to emulate, with equal zeal, our far more commendable efforts- in the defence of outraged and prostrate innocence. That in favour of a cause confessedly ^ o inglorious and unhallowed as the one from which we are now, with truly Christian importunity, endeavotuing to alienate the Govern- ment of France, it is utterly impossible lhat any degree what ™ ever of national enthusiasm should ever be excited : And lastly, that if the present, mercantile habit* of this Country be, in the estimation of Frenchmen, a ground of merited reproach, they can never, assuredly, without the very grossest inconsistency, consider llieir own national: character a3 otherwise than inexpressibly cU based by an ob- stinate com en' ion. for Hie monopoly of human llood. These considerations u'y weighed and urged, and the principles and leelings above inculcated allowed to operate ( as in Christian charity we are bou i to hope will be tho case) with all their natural energy on the i^ inds and conduct of our own Diplomatists at the approaching Congress; tbe righteous and holy zeal, so generally felt, and so conspicu- ously manifested by the Inhabitants of this Country on the subject above discussed, must needs ( we mav reasonably hope) be eventually crowned with the most glorious a ul complete success.

" EREFORD wifl hold an Ordination 1 ln Hie Cathedral of HI- RFFORD, on SDN DAY the SEVENTH of AUGUST — The Candidates are desfred lo'send then I estirnouials and other Papers, addressed to th- Bishop ten Days previous, and lo be at his House n Hereford at teo o'Clock on FRIDAY, the FIFTH, for the Purpose of Examination. ' To the EDITOR of the SALOPIAN JOCIIXAL, On the Lawfulness and moral Obligation of the most strenuous Interference on the Part ot this Country, for the Purpose of dissuading or restraining the Government of any other from sanctioning or tolerating the Continuance of that System, which we commonly denominate the SLA VE TRADE. Admitting ( as in reason we. are constrained to do) that the very same rules of moral conduct which are obligatory on the consciences of, private Individuals, are equally- obligatory 00 those of Princes and their Ministers, we must needs acknow- ledge further on the subject, that tiie only bounds within which we can consistently confine the beneficence of any Goveri- rnent, are those which are necessarily prescribed to it by tne limited extent of its political ability— or power of doing good. This, however, granted, tbe momentous question above proposed, it is sufficiently evident, can be no otherwise satisfactorily decided, than by our coming previously- to just conclusions on the two following heads:— viz. by our ascer- taining, in tbe first place, whether the wrongs of Afiica, immediately Reducible from the operation ofthe Slave Trade be really of that magnitude, which both warrants and de- mands the most energetick interference of this Government, for the purpose of speedily accomplishing its universal abolition. And' 2dly, Whether ns a nation, we actually possess that relatne power or influence which will enable us to dissuade, or ( if necessary) to • k est rain the Governments of other European countries from longer tolerating its continuance. Now on the former of these two important questions I shall take occasion in the first plate to icmurk, that if the unpro- voked invasion of any one European State ( of Switzerland, for example, or of Holland) would fully justify 011 the part of Great Britain, an armed interposition for the protection of the invaded tetriiory: and if general misery, injury, and outrage to the equally numerous, defenceless, and unoffending Population of Africa, aggravated far beyond the measure in which the calamitous effects of ordinary warfare can possibly be ever telt by the members of any civiliz- ed community, be ( as we but too well know they actually are) the natural and inevitable consequences of that nefarious system which we term the Slave Trade; a similar interference on the part of this Country for the righteous purpose of effecting the speedy an I the total abolition of that system throughout the whole oi Europ » — we must needs allow to be still more obviously justifiable. Aud should anv one be inclined to allege, in opposition to this reasoning, that suqh an interference would be nt: ei ly unwarrantable ; since the prnct ces and dealings of the Slave Merchant aie of a nature entirely civil and pacific ; being in fact perfectly conformable and subservient tothe municipal regulations of the several States of Africa: our reply will be, +~ rlt » t. to vindicate the continuance or revival of the Slave Trade on this gpound is, in reali'y, to argue ( not merely, on false da'. a,- but)- on a pnt> oi;>! e- necessarily subversive' in an equal measure both of religion and of morality.

" With great Humility we also beg Leave to approach Your Royal Highness with our Expressions of Gratitude for that Article of the Peace, which evinces the Desire of Your Royal Highness to put 1111 End, throughout Europe, to the Slave Trade ( however we lament the Concessions it hath made for its limited Continuance), and fur the gracious Assurances Your Royal Highness hath since given, of con- tinuing those Exertions to effect the total Abolition of a Traffic viewed with Abhorrence by this Nation. " That Your Royal Highness may long enjoy the Bless- ings of the Peace which you have thus established, and ever reign in the Hearts of a fiee, happy, and united People, is the Prayer of Your Royal llighness's most faithful, dutiful,- and devoted Servants." That the following Petition be presented to both Houses of Parliament, in Favour of the Abolition of ihe Slave Trade ; and that ihe Right Honourable the Earl of l'owis, the Recorder of the Town, be requested to present the Petition to the Huuse of Lords ; and the Members for the Town that to the 11 ouseof Commons. " To the Right Honourable the Lords Spiritual arid Temporal, and the Honourable the Com- mons, in Parliament assembled, " The humble Petition of the Mayor, Aldermen, Bur- gesses, and Inhabitants of the Town and Neighbourhood of Shrewsbury, iu the Couuty of Salop, whose Names aie undersigned, " SHEWETH, " That, upou the Conclusion ofa Peace, which seemed as eminently calculated to secure tbe Liberties, as to main- tain Ihe Tranquillity of Europe, we have observed with the deepest Regret, a Stipulation which consigns, for Hie Space of live Years, the Inhabitants of Africa to the destructive Ravages ofa felonious and atrocious System falsely dignified with the Appellation of Legitimate Commerce. u That circumstanced as France was, and long bad been, at the Conclusion of Hostilities, with Respect to her Marine and Colonial Possessions, we cannot consider this Stipulation as merely giving a Sanction to tbe Continuance of a Trade theu in Existence, but as the Revival and Renovation of that, which ( as far as regarded that Coun- try) was already extinct. " That tho' we deprecate any Idea of interfering in the internal Government and municipal Regulations of France, yet we cannot consider a System which delivers over to Slavery aud Oppression so large a Portion ofltlie habitable Globe as exempted from the Interference of any Christian Nation, or foreign to the Interests of any Community of Free Men. " That wc are willing ( however we may lament their Failure) to give full Credit to the Ministers of His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, for the Firmness and Ability with which they espoused the Cause of Africa, during the late Negociations with France ; and that we are'desiroua as much as in us lies, of adding Weight to the Remonstrances of Ihe British Ambassador at the ensuing Congress of the Powers of Europe, by a Declaration of the Sentiments and Feelings of the Population of this Country ou a Subject of so deep and painful Interest. " We, therefore, humbly pray your Lordships, and the Honourable House of Commons, lo take such Measures as in your Wisdom shall seem proper, in order to obtain the Renunciation of this hateful Traffic by France, aud such utlier Powers as still persist in carrying it ou, and to procure the final and universal Abandonment of a System, which has been repeatedly sligmalized, as well by both Houses of Parliament as Ihe other Branch ofthe Legislature, not only as unworthy of a Christian Nation, but as disgraceful to Humanity itself: " And Your Petitioners shall ever pray, & e." That the Petitions be left ia the Guildhall, for the Signature of Individuals. That the Thanks of this Meeting be given to Mr. MAYOR, for convening the same, and for his Conduct in the Chair That tbe Thanks of this Meeting be given to EDWARD BURTON, Esq for moving, aod to THOMAS LLOYD, Esq. forseconding llie Resolutions for the Address. That Ihe Thanks of this Meeting lie given to the Rev. F. DWARD BATHER, for moving, and to ROBERT PEM BERTON, Esq for seconding Ibe Petitions. That the warmest Thanks of this Meeting be given to W11 jLIAM WILBERFORCE, Esq. the Father of this great Cause, for the uniform Zeal, Ability, and Perseverance, he has during so long a Period displayed, iu endeavouring lo effect the entire Abolition of the Slave Trade. That the sincere and cordial Thanks of the Meeting be also given lo the Rev. Archdeacon CORBETT, for his long continued and unabated Exertions in Behalf of the oppress- ed Africans. That the Address, Petitions, and Resolutions, be inserted in the Shrewsbury Newspapers. LOXDALE, Town- Clerk.

On Saturday the Corporation of London gave t. magnificent banquet, in compliment to Field- Marshal the Duke of Wellington. Prior to the dinner, at about five o'clock, his Grace was presented w'ilh the freedom of the city in a gold box, and with the splendid sword which had been voted to him. On delivering the former, Ihe Chamberlain administered the oaths to the Noble Duke, and then addressed him, reciting the different occasions on which his gallant achievements had attracted the notice of the City of London, and had produced those indications of public gratitude in the meetings of the Corporation and the Livery, 6f which he had been informed during the progress 6f his glorious career. The Noble Duke, having bowed to the Lord Mayor and the Chamberlain, expressed his high sense of the honour conferred tipon him by the City, and attributed the success of all his cnterprizes to the ability wilh which he was supported by his brother officers, and to Ihe valour and discipline of his Majesty's forces, and those of the Allies. On receiving the sword, he raised his voice, and spoke wilh particular energy, declaring his readiness to employ it in the service of his Sovereign and Ins Country, should it unfortunately happen that the general wish df the nations of Europe for a permanent Peace should be disappointed, and that he should be again called upon to assist in the public cause.— The Dukes of York Kent, Sussex, Gloucester, Norfolk, Beaufort, and all the Cabinet Ministers ( Lord Sidmouth excepted) were assembled. After dinner " A'on Nobis" was sung, and the toasts were given ( by sound of trumpet), with an appropriate glee or song between each. The Corporation of London upon this occasion took the opportunity of inviting every person to the enter- tainment who had been in any way noliced in the Votes of Parliament for their services, either by sea or land, as Well as those they had themselves noticed in votes of thanks or given the freedom and swords, boxes, or othor rewards; in addition to which were the relations and Ihose tbat were connected with the Duke of W ellington, his Staff, nnd many others both naval and military, who, allhough they had not been noticed by name, bad yel deserv* d well of their country. The Votes of Parliament and the Proceedings of the Court of Common Council were gone through from the year 1703 to llie present time, and the names severally selected for the purpose. The arrangements were the same as on the occasion of the Prince Kegcni's late visit, excepting that the roofof't- he hall was not covered; the galleries were, during the whole entertainment, filled with ladies iu full evening dress, and their appearance, beaming with delight at the spectacle they witnessed, gave animation to flic v. liole scene. FRANCE. MUTINOUS SPIRIT OF TIIE FRENCH PRISONERS OF WAR. The accounts in the French Papers begin to excite a very lively interest. France is not tranquil; the seeds of disorder are thickly sown in lier bosom; and the late prisoners of war have taken back with them senti- ments, which threaten tbe very existence of the pre- sent Government. A frightful profligacy, and a most revolting egotism, are visible in that ill- fated country, which prevent the inhabitants from feeling attachment to an order of things which would restrain their licen- tiousness. Peace lias not introduced amongst them domestic tranquillity ; on the contrary, it seems to have given a vent to those bad humours, which the stern tyranny of Bonaparte had prevented from tran- spiring ; and it is feared the French Ministry are not competent to Die task of coercing the spirit of dis- content lhat begins to manifest itself— particularly in the Army. The Ministers, we understand, are individually men of talents, but collectively, from a discordance of views and principles, they are very unfit to embrace a common and regular system adapted to so perturbed a juncture. Tlie Chancellor, who is understood to be the King's chief adviser, is a man of integrity, con- ' siderable experience, and great ability; but he is represented a » averse to most of the innovations which have taken place since the Revolution. The Abbe Montesquieu, who is Minister of the iuterior, is also a man of good moral character, and is supposed to be fully adequate to the exercise of his very arduous functions; he als6 enjoys a considerable share of the King's confidence, and appears to merit it, on account of the moderation of his political principles. Talley- rand's abilities are loo well known to require com- ment ; but he does not stand so high ( unfortunately perhaps) ifithe Royal favour; and is supposed not to concur with his colleagues on many important points. The other members of the Ministry are men of ordinary capacity, hut well intentioned. The Minister of War ( General Oupont), it is believed, was recommended to the situation more front his known hostility to Bona- parte than from extraordinary merit, though he is acknowledged to be an officer of considerable talent. There is certainly a laxity visible in his measures, either arising from character or external circumstances. He has issued repeated orders, enjoining individuals belonging to the army to leave the capital and join tbeir respective corps. The frequent repetition of this order shews that it has not been obeyed— mildness will not succeed with these wild spirits t they have been accustomed to the fierce nnd imperious will of Bona- parte ; and they would only despise the hand which • • 1 .1- f„ ,; mao „ f SHROPSHIRE AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. ! [ Proceedings at the late Meeting continued.] The Rev. JOHN WILDE, oh rising to move ihe Thanks to the late Committee, spoke to the following effect:— Detained, contrary to my expectation, beyond the period of this Annual Mee'ing, I cannot now refrain to add mv feeble voice to that of others in commendation of this Institution. I congratulate you, Sir, and this respectable Meeting upon the unanimity which prevails among all of each sex and every persuasion, in the one great purpose which we are here met to promote. Objects assume a different colour as thev are seen through different mediums.— Far be it from me, Sir, to impute unworthy motives to any of my clerical or christian brethren, who, on this subject, may think different! v from me The same candour which we expect from others in judgingour principles, we should freely display towards others in iheexa- i mination of theirs. This union, which some regard as fraught . with evil, I consider as teeming wi h good— this concoul, which they pronounce a reproach, 1, on the contrary, con- templatt? as an honour to the Society. InStates and Com- monwealths, when the minds of men are engrossed and fixed on some one object, points of minor consideration, aud differ- ence lose their influence, aud are forgotten; and why may not the same be expected in ecclesiastical bodies ? Why may not the same results here flow from t he same principles, as in political stales } Christians, bv having their views directed to one object, will be the more likeW to lay aside their petty dissentiong and vain janglinps. These, and not the momen- tous truths of the Gospel, have ever been the fruitful occasion of those endless divisions which weaken and dishonour the cause aud name of Christianity. This? Society opens to the views and energy of all one simple object, one acknowledged truth. In proportion as it fixes and engages the attention, it abstracts the mind from subjects of less moment ; bv with- drawing the souice, it dries up the baneful stieam of disunion, arid lays a solid foundation for that unity and godly love, which, as they were the ornament of the first Churches, will be the firmest pillar of every Christian establishment. I congratulate you, Sir, upon the noble triumph of this Society over the attacks of its adversaries. We hail other vic- tories which have been won u with garments rolled in bl0od. M Wilh what satisfaction should we celebrate that victory, which has been gained, not by carnal, but by those spiritual weapons which christians of every denomination should be alone anxious to use. Like the victories of our suffering Re- 9jwperal parliament. Illuminated Temple in the Green Park. — The grand illuminated temple preparing in the Green Park, wdl not onlv be oue of the. most beautiful pieces of theatrical ar- chitecture and mechanism that can be conceived, but it will exhibit one of ilie most stupendous efforts of mechanical movement. The lower st'. rv of this temple will be one hundred pet ignore, unmounted by a circular building, rising nearly 70 feet in height; nevertheless, the whole of this great pile will he made to revolve upon its vertical axis, not only lo aceommudate tbe different changes of fire- works which it will exh bit, but. also to display in • rotation the different alle- gorical transparent pictures with winch it is decorated, with- out the necessity of any motion in the surrounding crowd.— The paintings have been executed by Mr. Howard, Secretary to the lloyal Academy, a id other eminent artists. — This building will, in the first place, represent an old foitress and round tower, and, alter the display of the larger military pieces of fire- wort , it will suddenly be converted into an il laminated Temple ot Concord. Clergy Residence Bill.— The Bill now before Parlia- ment for amending tin- laws relative to spiritual persons holding farms, and for enforcing their residence, proposes to enact, tliat actions tor the penalties shall not commence before the first of May, and that penalties shall be recover- able only for the preceding yeai ; that penalties shall not be recoverable for more than one year; that the vear for the purposes ot the act shall commence ihe lst cf January, and end tbe 31st of December, and that licenses, except lor tem- po! arv causes, be granted accordingly ; that the pievirolls of the former act, depriving ecclesiastical persons who shall neglect to notitv their exemptions, be repealed, in lieu of which a line of twenty pounds is imposed ; lhat every penalty in respect of whicb no proceeding shall have been had by monition ill otherwise, belore the lst of May, after the year iu which ttie penalty arose, may be recovered by action; tbat ihe reside uce on any ecclesiastical preferment, by any pei- soii posses. ing more lhan one, be declared to be resident within the act, and also while performing the office of arch- deacon; that eleigymeu lesident partly on oue benefice or dignity, and partly on another, are not to be returned as non- resident; that any cletgvman having no house of residence, aud I'hosha1! havr refilled nine months of the year w ithin the limits of he benefice, or at a distance fioin the same allotted tiy tlte Bishop, shall not be liable to auy penalties un account of non resideme; that the houses purchased by the Governors ol Queen Anne'. Bounty, shall be considered resi- dences ; that persons holding dignities or offices in cathedrals ur collegiate churches, having no house of residence, aud not requited by tlnJstatutes to leside, - hall not be liable to pen- alties lor uon- iesideuce; and that residence in such dignity shall uot exempt them for non- residence on any other where residence is lequired ; that dignitaries bound tu limited resi- dence shall be subject to penalties for non residence during the periods in wtin h they ought to reside; that deans shall return an annual list of those whom their chapter have re- si led ; that Bishops may levy penalties aud costs by sequcs- tration. Gaol Fees Abolition Bill.— This Bill, also at present before Parliament, purposes lo onact, that all fees payable at Gaols and Bridewells shall, from aud afler the lst May, IS J 5, be abolished; that Justices of the Peace in Quarter Sessions, may make snch allowances to gaolers or their ser- vants as may lo them seem fit, and may direct such allow, ances to be paid out of county rates, & c. In places which do not contnbute to county tales, these allowances are to be rinsed by a local tax ; that the allowunceu shall, iu certain cases, be paid out of the poor rates ; that eveiy prisoner charged with lelony or misdemeanour, and acquitted, be discharged without payment of any fee; that all fees usually paid to cleiks of the court, assize, &. c. be abolished ; that treasurers ol counties iu England pay alluwances fur places not usually assessed lo the county at taige ; that all offi- ers exacting fees in lutuie he guilty uf a misdemeanour; that liberates be in future granted todebtois free uf all expeuces; and that com- pensation he made to the Sheiiffs for the same ; that auy gaoler exacting fees in future shall be guilty of misdemeanour; and, lastly, that tbe Act shall not extend to gaols which are private prupeity. should attempt to lead them gently. In times of trouble and storm, the voice and action of the man at the helm must be determined ; and if ever energy was requisite, it is particularly so at present. The Address to the prisoners of war, who have been restored, is not pointed enough for the occasion; for, tho'it alludes to a most portentous spirit of disaffection, it only menaces generally and indirectly, whilst no punishment I is defined, which will only encourage these men to be more insolent in their language, and more audacious in their proceedings.— The Bourbons deserve our utmost sympathy; for tliey seem to feel an earnest wish to render France happy. We hope, at all events, that they will stand firmly at their posts, and be unawed by the present clamour. This appears to be tbe wise determination of the King: be recollects, no doubt, that the lenity of his predecessor proved fatal to him- self and the monarchy. In the mean time several of the Marshals have set out for their military divisions, and we have to learn the effect which their presence shall have in restoring the discipline and subordination of the Army. A general dislocation of the troops is operating at this moment i and as these officers are accustomed to command, we encourage the hope lhat they will be able to repress an open burst of discontent within the circles of tlieir military jurisdiction LIBERTY OF THE PRESS. The new Law upon this subject proposes, that every work of more than 30 sheets, shall be freely published, and without examination. With respect to works of 30 sheets or less, the Ministers, and in each department the Prefect, may require that they shall be previously communicated. They shall be examined by censors, who may suspend the publication if they are found to be injurious to the rights of government, morals, and religion. Journals and periodical writings shall not appear but with the King's authority. Printers and booksellers are to be breveted by the King. Clandes- tine writings expose their authors to a fine of 10,000 francs and six months' imprisonment. The law shall be reviewed at tbe end of three years, to make the modifications which experience shall deem necessary. The Liberty of the Press occupies much discussion among the politicians of Paris at the present moment. Besides the Debates which have taken place in the Chamber of Deputies, several pamphlets have been published oil this subject, bolh for and against the adoption of the English syslem ; but, unhappily, the influences of law and public morals are so weak at present in France, compared with what they are in England, that the same' rules wliich may be safely followed in the one country, would replunge the other into a'l the horrors of revolution and civil war. A writer in one of the French Journals, after exposing, with great effect, many marked differences between the stale of manners in France and Englaud, thus concludes:— " Perhaps we could not adopt a better rule, than to follow, in this respect, the very opposite path pursued bv Bonaparte. Under bis domination the freedom of speaking on the public administration of Government was stifled with a jealuusv which would have made the Ministers of the Sublime Poite blusli: but in recompence fur this, a man might declaim against morality or leligiou in any way he chose. Suppose we . iere to reverse this system. Hieie would be little incon- venience in allowing us to criticise the public administration, finances, police, or legislation. In truth, we are too indif- ferent on such subjects, to abuse that permission ; but on the other hand, we have been so long accustomed to an en- tiie relaxation of all the bonds of morality aud religion, that we are moie than ever disposed to neat them with ridicule; we seem anxious to complete Iheir entire subversion ; and thus to get rid of the few principles, which have resisted ihe undermining effect of our numerous tevolutions, and the deso- lating torrent of false philosophy.?' Assuredly, if this picture, drawn as it is by a friendly hand, presents any tiling like a resemblauce to the real state of France, it must be allowed, that to introduce into that country the institutions of a moral, a free, and a temperate people, requires no ordinary degree of judgment, and must be attempted by very slow and cautious gradations. Dreadful Avalanche.— Some travellers recently ar- rived from Waltachia, have brought an account of a terrible calamity which has befallen Ihe inhabitants of Oybestein.— That district, one of the most populous in the country, was situated in Ihe neighbourhood of several lofty mountains; same of these were cultivated to their summits, and the sides were covered with the dwellings of the natives ; the base of the highest, however, is supposed to have been sapped by long rains. Ou the night of the 20th of April, while Ihe inhabit- ants, unsuspici ous of such a calamity, were buried in repose, ttie peak, called the " Devil's Neck," descended with a noise lesembling au earthquake, und overwhelmed in its progress houses, forest*, and innumerable cattle. The concussion was so frightful, that the inhabitants of the adjacent villages started from their beds, and were running quite naked from their habitation* to seek bafely in the plains. The extent of this calamity had not been ascertained, but it was supposed thai 400 souls had beeu buried beneath the ponderous frag- ments, which extended over and covered a mile of ground.— The general distress was much increased by Ihe groans which were heard issuing from tbe ruins 4 days utter the avalanche. It was impossible to render these unfortunate sufferers timely aid, ami their sufferings must have been augmented with the protraction of their lives.—[ Extracted fiom un Austrian Paper."] The Emperor of Austria has named the Prince Regent of England Colonel- proprietor of a regiment of Hussars, which will bear his name, iu the manner of those which bear the names of the Princes of tbe House of Austria. deemer, this has been achieved more by patience, by pure- ness, bv knowledge, bv the Armour of Righteousness ou Ihe right hand and on the left. It has lived down the arguments of its assailants— it has falsified all the prophecies of mischief anil evil that would result fiom it. So, and by snch methods, may alt its adversaries be put to silence ; and this Society, which arose as the little cloud, like a man's hand, increase and expand till it cover the face of the earth, nnd refresh, with the waters of life, all people, languages, and nations. From tbe principles and conduct of such an Institution, we may account for that success which it has hitherto and ! trust will continue to meet with— a success, as honourable lo the rich as it is salutary to the poor— as glorious to this Country as it is beneficial to Foreign Nations. If British wants are much lessened, Foreign necessities call still for British hu- manity. Look over the map of the Globe— mark the coun- tries upon which the Sun of Righteousness has never or but faintly arisen, and the Christian will find more to hasten than retard his steps in this tabour of love,— to evangelize and civilize the world, A door, and I hope an effectual one, has been opened for the dissemination of divine truth, by the peace of Europe. With other eyes than those of a politician, the Members of this Institution will regard the great blessing. They will hail il os removing the obstruction, aud facilitating the access of the Word of God among those who have hitherto laboured under that greatest of all evils, a Spiritual Famine. They will consider, that as from the rejection nf the Bible abroad, arose the volcanic eruption of anarchy and crime, so by its general introduction Peace may be firmly established on earth, and good- will promoted anioug men. But while, Sir, I congratulate you upon the opening which the Peace affurds to the scope of christian exertion, I mos' sincerely offer iny condolence that the door is closed to the continent of Afiica. There, it might have been hoped that this Institution may have profitably exerted its influence There would have been room enough and to spare for all our money and all our labour— but the dnor of hope has been shut upon our prospects— Africa, unhappy, but not unpitied, Africa, is given up to the cruel grasp of avarice and murder. I hope I shall be excused for the introduction of a subject which is calculated to cast a cloud of gloom on Christian benevolence.— Sir, I should be the last to damp the joy which pervades this assembly, or blend political subjects with the purpose of our present meeting. The Kingdom which we unite to found and extend, is not of this world; and no mention of this heart- sickening theme should have escaped from my lips, did it not bear most heavily upon our wishes and labours as Members of this Institution. For with what hope can the British and Foreign Bible Society noiv send forth the word of life to those benighted Africans, when from uur shores will issue font] bands of murderers, with the instruments of torture and the weapons of destruction. Wiih what confidence can those holv and zealous Missionaries invite them to accept the Gospel of Peace, while, almost within their view, Christians by name are watching, like fiends ol Hell, to bind them with fetters of iron. Will they not ask those venerable ( I will call them) Apostles, Is this the Statute Bonk, is this the Rule of Life of those who come heieto tear us frbm our wives, our children, and our country ? Wiil they not look on the boon with horror, justly concluding from the practice of its professors, that to them it can contain within its folds nothing but lameritatiun, mourning, aud woe ? Sir, il is from this view of the subject that I do indeed condole with yon and this Meeting upon the check which is thus likely to be thrown in the way of our exertions. While as members of this Society we may be allowed to lament this unexpected obstacle, as Christians we may indulge the ho e that as the prayers of God's faithful people have availed to rescue Europe from Slavery, so the same piayer* ascending. statedly and constantly, with our families and in our closets, ina\ finally prevail to save the innocent Africans fr.- m a much inore cruel bondage. I hope. Sir, I shall be pardoned of this Meeting for this digression, if digression it may be calhd, and 1 trust 1 shall meet also with vnur indulgence, whose sympathy and whose exertion in this cause, have given you a conspicuous station on that column which will transmit to future generations the honoured names of a Sbarpe and a Wilberrorce. After which JOHN LEE, Esq. in the name of the late Committee, acknowledged the honour done tliein by the Resolution of Thanks, iu nearly the following words: SIR— Though not individually conscious of deserving the vote of thanks, which has been so handsomely tendered to your Committee, I rise in their name to express our warmest obligations. And allow me to take this opportunity of remarking, that I this year enjoved the gratification of being pieseot at the Annual Meeting of two Societies in London, one the venerable parent of this, and the other the kindred institution, the Naval and Military Bible Society.— I will not attempt to give you a representation of the eloquence displayed, and the feelings excited on these occasions; nor is it necessary for me lo offer even a succinct detail of their proceedings, as they have heen already published; hut this I will say, thai if any scenes be calculated to touch the noblest sensibilities of our nature, to rekindle our languid zeal, to warm and animate the heart, they are such scenes as these. The grand object we have in view, Ihe circulation of the pure word of God, without any intermixture of human frailties, was there en- forced by eloquence the most persuasive, and encouraged by patronage the most exalted ; there might you behold Princes, and Prelates, and Patriots; Ambassadors and States- men ; Officers, naval and military, of talents and stations the most eminent; Clergy and laity of all denoininatinns ; immo- lating their prejudices on the altar of universal benevolence, and vying with each other iu expressing the ardour of their at- tachment tothe great cause. The contributions were such as preceding contributions led us to anticipate, nor was there any reason to blush for that portion of them which was trans- mitted from this Society. Bul, Sir, might we not reasonably hope to extend the in- fluence of our exertions ? why might we not attempt the Institution of Branch Societies iu other towns, after Ihe ex- amples of M. vdeleje, Wellington. and Newport ?— Permit uie also to express my gratification, in the name of theComuiittee, in the strength we have acquired by the accession of a Vice- President, w hose name is itself a host— a Warrior, who, after having rendered many signal services to his country by the sword, has enrolled himself in au Institution, whose object it is to distribute that book, fiom which we expect ihe gieatest benefit, not toour country only, but to the world— a General, who has never fought but to oe victorious; uniting in his person an assemblage of those rare endowments, which are adapted to excite our warm admiration— dignity with humili- ty, mildness with courage, spirit with judgment, and coolness with ardour. Sir, in this best of causes, may we emulate the bright example of this distinguished soldier, in the service of bis country. HOUSE OF COMMONS, MONDAY, JULY 11. LORD COCHRANE. Lord ESRINGTON, seeing a noble lord ( Castlereagh) in his place, wished to know whether it was tbe intention of Govern- ment, to recommend to the Crown the exercise of its prero- gative in remitting any part of the punishment; to which a noble Lord, a laie member of the House, was sentenced hy the Court of King's Bench.— Lord CASTLBRE- AGH said, that an application fur the remission of part of the punishment, adjudged in the case alluded, was made in the usual way to the Crown, by oue of the parties convicted with Lord Coch- rane, but he ( Lord Castlereagh) was not then prepared lo state how that application should be treated. The subject was under consideration, and he considered the interference of the House under such circumstances, wholly inexpedient. — LORD ERRINGTON said, it was his intention, having received no satisfactory answer from the noble lotd ( Castlereagh), to offer a motion on the subject. He should move an Address to his Roval Highness the Prince Regent, to mitigate ttie punishment of Lord Cochrane, in consideration of his personal services. He then gave notice of a motion to lhat effect for to- morrow se'nnight.— Lord CASTLEREAGH wished that it should be fully considered whether sucb a motion would be of any real use.— Mr. WHITBREAD asked whether, on the. ap- plication to the Crorvn, the case of all the parties convicted would be taken into consideration, or only that of the indi. virlual who applied — Lord CASTI, BREACH said, the application regarded only the case of the individual, hut that be appre- hended the circumstances regarding all the parties would pass under review.— The ATTORNEY GENERAL said tbe usual course in such cases was for the crown to take the opinion of the judge who presided at the trial.— Mr. WHITBUBAD stated one instance in which au application for the exercise of the royal meicy was made by himself to the Secretary of State. The person holding that situation then was tbe late Lord Melville. His lordship did refer the circumstances to the judge, but did not act upon the answer given, from an opinion, which bis lordship declared, that the judge was wrong. ARMY ESTIMATES. Lord PALMERSTON moved that the House should go into a Committee of Supply, for the purpose of taking tiie army estimates into consideration.— Mr. FriEEMANTi. s complained of the Government for not having commenced a leduction uf the public expenditure at an earlier period of the year. After the dethronement of Bonaparte, he considered every appear- ance of danger to this countiy as wholly lemoved. A diminu- tion of two millions ou an expenditure of 17 millions, ( ihe reduction proposed by the noble lord Paltnerston) he con- sidered a very inadequate proportion.— He thought that after so long and expensive a war, the public burthens should be reduced as much as possible, and desired that some declar- ation on the subject should be made by Government before the close of tbe session.— The hon. Mr. BEMNETT complained at some length of the manner in which the military force of this country was employed in Sicily, where he stated the treatment of the sovereign and the people to have been as violent and unjustifiable as that of Spain by Bonaparte. The old institutions of the country were destroyed, and a govern- ment forced upon them by military execution. He then read a proclamation issued in Sicily, threatening with the severest punishments all those who should in any way obstruct the meaaures of government. This, he said, reminded him of the most arbitiary orders lately issued at Madiid. He next adverted to the veteran battalions, who were objects of com passion, wholly unable to do auy active duty, and still seut oil foreign service within tbe last few years. It was too haid that men should be kept thirty or forty years on Rctive service, thus exhausting not only their youth and maturity, but iheir old age. He also complained of the state of the officers of these battalions, and wished them to be placed on tbe same footing in respect to promotion as the officers of the other branches of the army. He concluded wiih observing, lhat the noble lord ( Palmerstoti) had made no allusion to any report of a Board of Officers appointed to inquire into the state of the veteran battalions, and declared his intention uf offer- ing a motion on that subject — Lord PALMERSTON said, that the Board referred to by the hon. gentlemau was compo- ed of officers of the first respectability, that it was merely through inadvertence that he had not alluded to it, and when the sub iect should he brought forward he should be pienared to meet the hon. gentleman. With respect to the veteran battalions, he stated, that they were by no means either wholly disabled to do duty, or objects ol compassion ; tbat the unprecedented demand for military force had lately made it necessary to employ them abroad, not on active service, but on garrison duty, in the same manner as if at home, being allowed lo have their wives and families with them, with every personal indulgence, and that they should now lie provided on such pensions as they shnuid be found entitled lo ; ihe officers being allowed lo retire on full pay. He stated, that the condition of the officers, in respect to promotion, so far from being looked upou as a grievance, was the object of sucb frequent applications, as could not be always complied with. It was easv, he said, fir hon. gent'emen to require the reduction ofthe military on the dethronement ot Bonaparte; but why did not hon, members state the practicable details. How could tbe battalions abroad be reduced before their re- turn, or the second battalion- at home before tbe first battalions of their regiments had come from abroad. The militia were doing duty at a distance from their native counties, so lhat without their removal, which was not practicable hitherto, they could not be disembodied, fie stated considerable re iluctinns iu the cavalry, a troop being in many instances le duced frnm SO to 60 men. The staff abroad, he slated, could not be reduced until the station of the troops at home was ascertained. With respect to the peace establishment that would be maintained, be could only say, that it should be regulated by a' stiict regaid to economy, consistent with the foreign and domestic security, of the Bi'i'i- sh Empire. He contended, that, iu consequence of the accession of foreign territory, the peace establishment before the French revo- lution, could nut be a fair criterion for the present. He should take that opportunity of mentioning what it was his in- tention to state to the committee regarding the alterations he should propose. It was his intention tu make a difference between the pay of full General aud Lieu'enanl General, raising that of the former trom .£ 1 12s fid. to j£ l. 18s. Au arrangement was in contempla'ion in respect to the cavalry, which however was to be left at theii own option, thai they should retain their commissions, or accept the pay of general officers; the arrangement having been made for the benoSt of offi- ers in other paits of the service, aud their e rudition not being expected to require any amelioration.— From the peculiar constitution of Ihe Guards, there was a continually increasing number of iiv'ffii'ient general officers, whom it was intended to remove, but so as to place th m in uo worse situation than at present, making up to i hem, iu the aggiegate, a sum equal io their present income To Generals, who were regim ntal Field Officers, the following arrangements were proposed :— A full General, being a regimental Colonel, to ha-. e £\ 1' f* 0, and Major General ,£ 900} being regimental Major <£ 700, and regimental Captain £ b00. It was intended that Lieutenants, having acquired a shilling a day additional by service, should have sixpence on hall pay; and that ensigns should have three shillings. In the reduction of the public expenditure in the military department, he assured the House that the strictest regard to economy should be ob- served, consistently with the safety ol the country, and the great and gallant services of the a- my.— Mr. POSSONBY said, tiiat it would uot be proper to confine themselves to the estab- lishment before the revolutionary war, but every excess beyond that ought to be accounted for on guod grounds. How far our relations with Sicily might require any exertion of this sort, wanted, in his opinion, some explanaiion. This was a subject which he could not pretend at present to understand. — Lord OSTLER EACH observed, that though they were to withdraw themselves entirely from Sicily, this would not by any means wairant their indifference to the state of tbe Con- tinent, or render a comparative establishment less necessary. It was a most exaggerated description of this or any other peace that it would place us beyond the necessity of an establish- ment proportioned to our relations with other powers. Tbe late events might secure to us a long peace, if all the arrange- ments were so made, but « t present this was not ibe case. Much yet remained to be done. Europe was yet unsettled, aud it was not Ihe policy of any power todisarm entirely till Europe was fixed on some broad and permanent basis. We were not, to be sure, in a state of actual hostilities, hut the agitation that had lasted foi- 20 years, and the vajfinus claims that must naturally aiise out of a state of such change and confusion as had takeu place, were not tu be settled, nor could they be expected to subside, in a moment. He was not prepared to state stny thing positive respecting ihe internal affairs of Sicily. Our relations there were at present in a state of war, at, d he Could not. therefore say what they might be in a state, of peace.— Loid NEWARK complained, that the Guards were likely to be the only sufferers from the arrange- ment proposed. They were n very meritorious part of the service, and he did uot think hat tbey oughl tu be placed iu a worse state lhan before.— The House then went into the Committee — Mr. PONSONBY objected toany alteration inthe state of the Guards. They could not want mote officers in peace than iu war: An alteration has been proposed which could serve no purpase but to increase the patronage of the Commander iu Chief at tbe expense of tbe public.— Mr. BsKNSTrcontended/ that the measure proposed, with respect to the Guards, was a mere job, and had no other object but that of patronage and briuging forwaid particular friends.— Mr. PONSONBY recommended also tbe Ensigns and Lieuten- ants of the British army to an increase of half pay, and pro- posed a vote of .£ 20.000 for that purpose, as belter than an expense uf 40 or ,£ 50,000 to those who did tint appear really to wish it.— Lord PALMERSTO. N observed, that in the scale that meritorious class of officers had not been forgotten, but a proportioned gradation was necessary to be observed.— After a loug a protractcd conversation, the resolution, as pro- posed by Lord Palinerston, was read from the chair, that the sum of 46,000 b.- voted to his Majesty to discharge' tho allowances to certain General Officers, uot being Colonels of regiments.— Mr. PONKONHY, to put an eud altogether to the proposed measure, with respect to the Guards, which would amounl to about ,£ 10,000, moved, as au amendment, that the- sum of ,£ 30,000 ( we snppose he meant 36,000) be voted- in- stead of that sum. Tne Committee beie divided— For the amendment 19— against il — majority tor the original sum 54. General GASCOICSR then moved, that the sum of -£ 200(> be granted to his Majesty fur the increase of the half pay of the subalterns of the army, which, after some conversation, was agreed to without a division.

The report of the London Gauls Bill was takeu into further consideration on the motion of Mr. Holford.— The boil Mr. BRNNETT wished to put it off at tbat late hour of the night.—. Sir W. CURTIS Sir JAMES SHAW, and Mr. Alderman ATRINS opposed the bill as unnecessaiy, and infringing on tile con- stitution of the city. The evils complained nf were either without foundation as removed, or would be wholly removed soon as the new gaol would be in a state to afford tbem mure accommodation. The prisoners had a reasonable allow- ance bolh of bread and butcher's meat, though it was not to be expected that a gaol should lie so constructed as to invite people to come to It. Sir W. Curtis concluded with moving, that the bill be read again this day three months — After some observations from Sir J. Ackla'nd, Mr Holford, See, the House divided— For the amendment 23— against it 17— majority against ihe bill 6. BANKRUPTS, Jt/ f. Y 9. John Ainsuiorth, of Crickelty, dealer, July 19, 20.

TO MR. LIUNUM, SURGEON, MANCHESTER. HEAR ITS, Etlesmere, March 25, 1814. ITHINK it a duty incumbent on me, gratefully to ac knowledge ro you, and publicly to state, the particulars of my ease, for the benefit of those who may be afflicted with SCROFULOUS or SCORBUTIC AFFECTIONS, that they may know where to apply for a certain and speedy Remedy to terminate their sufferings. In the year 1800, I bad a violent Rheuma- tic Fever; after suffering severely a long time, it left a Scoi- butie Complaint behind, which broke out in several ulcers ou the Thigh and Hip, and at times my whole body was covered wilh Spots, attended with a violent itching, that rendered life irksome. Various trials were made by the eminent of the Faculty, which drd not even alleviate my Afflictions ; in fact, I got daily worse, was reduced to the last extremity, and had despaired of finding relief in thi » world, when accident threw a Shrewsbury Newspaper in my way. I there found a case, similar to my own. cured by your ANTISCORBUTIC DRUPS. As the last remnant Of hope, 1 de- termined to give them ft trial, aud purchased a small battle* of Mr. Baugh, Bookseller At this time the ulcers wero much inflamed, and exceedingly painful; from thn timer began taking them, the inflammation abated, and th- ulcers put on a mote healthy appearance; by the time I had taken the second buttle ( improbable as it may appear to those un- acquainted with the just merits of your truly valuable Me- dicine) I wns perfectly restored. For safety's sake I took a thiol, and have taken oue everv Spring for the last seven Years, which has preserved me from the ravages trf that de- structive malady. This account I am at all times ready to testify personally, or by letters Post- paid. lam, Sir, Your obedient Set vant, JOHN DAVIES, Whitesmith.

OCTOR FREEMAN'S GUTTA SALU PARIS, or, DIURETIC. DUO PS, the most famous Medicine for curing Venereal, Glandular, and Cutaneous Disorders, Gleets. SIC A bottle or two will convince the patient of their salutary effects ; a few bottles have effected a cure after salivation and every other means have proved abortive, and even when the disorder has been standing several years. No remedy can be better contrived, more safe, or more convenient than this, for such as are obliged to go longjournies, or to sea, as it needs no confinement, or restraint of diet; and 40 years experience by Dr. Freeman in an extensive practice, has proved it uo less successful in those debilities which arise more from im- prudence than a cei tain cause— to such patients it holds out a never failing, permanent, and speedy relief.
