TO BE SOLD IN PUBLIC AUCTION, At the Houseof Thomas Hodgson, at WEST- END, Burgh- _ line of circumvallation round him as should make it impossible for n en to balance as to the er event, if ultimately they must come to the arbitre- p; i* er, t of arms. It was thought even that Bona- , parte might find means to escape' in'o the raoun- p; tains of Switzerland, which, according to some, C( was a part of his original plan, in case his great w attempt should fail. bi Soult's affairs become more mysterious than ; Sj ever. The Moniteur informs us " that the p • King has written a letter to the Duke of Dal- r matia, to express his approbation of his ser- ; sj ces, the estimation in which he held them, j, id the desire which he felt of availing himself f, f them again." Is Soult too powerful still to be s" unished, or if he was not in fault why Was he eprived of his situation? • After a review of the National Guards, books have been opened for the subscription of those who will form part of 1 c le legion which is to march with the Prince a- ainst the enemy. A proclamation has been al- 1 0 addressed to the Parisians, in which they are ailed upon " to defend their King, their country, aid the honour of their capital." On the 16th in the Chamber of Deputies, ' Monsieur having expressed, in the name of his amily, how deeply they shared in the sentiments vhich animated his Majesty, turned towards the Assembly, and raising his'hand, added ;—" We iwear on our honour to live and to die faithful i our King and the Constitutional Charter, which secures the happiness of the French." Whilst : he Assembly replied to this oath by acclamations, the King, deeply affected, presented his hand to his Royal Highness, who seized it, and kissed it with transport. The King, unable then to resist the sentiment which impelled him, clasped Mon- sieur in his arms with all the dignity of a King, and the tenderness of a brother. At that noble and touching spectacle, emotion succeeded trans- port,— every heart was moved, every eye in tears. There were repeated cries of long live the King, death to his enemies, tyc. By a proclamation of General Dupont, it ap- pears that instead of being on the line of march i described in the Moniteur of the 15th, he was on that very day still with his corps at Orleans. An Order of the Day, dated Paris, March 16th, di- rects the garrison of Paris to prepare to march to meet the enemy on the 17th, and to consider the 18th as the day on which the campaign is opened. A number of placards have been stuck up in 1 different places by the partizans of Napoleon, not- he could no longer be considered by all the Pow- erti in any other light than a robber, beyond the pale of the laws of nations." The news of the invasion of France by Bona- parte was received at Vienna on the 8th. The consternation was universal. The first feeling was to reconcile the Crowned Heads, who had been wrangling for months about the division of spoil, instead of cordially fulfilling to Europe the promises they had given ; and it is said that a ve- ry honourable mark of their confidence by- Sands, in the Countv of Cumberland, on Tuesday, the 18th day of April, 1815; AFREEHOLD ESTATE, at BURGH- BY- SANDS, in the Cconty of Cumberland; consisting of a Dwelling- house, Out- offices, and several Closes of ex- cellent Arable, Meadow, and Pasture Ground, containing together by mensuration about 18A. 2R. 6P. and now in the occupation of Thomas Hodgson, as Tenant.

Of the persons involved in the treason in the North under Lefebvre, the two brothers Lalle- mand have been taken, but Lefebvre escaped* General Drouet has been arrested. One account says he has been tried, found guilty, and executed. Soult's name is no where- mentioned. Private letters state, that he went to the King, and can- didly confessed he had not the information which it was his duty to have obtained, and therefore begged leave to resign. The third series of papers is of melancholy im- portance. The Moniteur of the 16th informs us, that the people have risen in favour of Bonaparte in all the considerable towns of Burgondy and the Department of the Cote d'Or. This insur- rection is represented as the effect of his machi- nations, and the incitements of his emissaries. One- of the worst features of this insurrection is, that it was not caused by the presence of a military force to encourage and support it, but began at a time when Bonaparte, we are told, was concentrating his force at Lyons, and when Ney, with 10,000 men, chiefly National Guards, was marching by Bourg- towards that city. The rising commenced at Macon, 40, miles north of Lyons: the garrison having been sent to Moulins to replace the two regiments of cavalry which had deserted, the people revolted, and drove the Pre- fect and the Authorities to Chalons, 35 miles fur- ther. Here the insurrection immediately spread. Several pieces of cannon, which were on their way to the Royal army, were seized with fury, and cast into the river. The Prefect and Autho- rities fled to Antun, 35 miles north- west, but tihe insurrection followed them to that place, embra- cing Tourmus and the villages in the vicinity. It soon after extended to Dijon, the capital of the Department of Cote D'Or, 114 miles north of Lyons.— The Perfect and Authorities of Dijon returned to Chatillon sur Seine, the seat of the negociations with Bonaparte at this very time last year, and which lies only about 115 miles from Paris. To encourage his followers, Napoleon is said to have announced that he was marching on Troyes ; at the same time it is acknowledged that he has demanded 10,000 rations from that town, and from Provins, which is only 45 miles from Paris. How his emissaries were allowed to HOUSEHOLD FURNITURE, POST CHAISES, HOUSE v, S; c. TO BE SOLD IN PUBI.

After an abdication, the circumstances of which you are acquainted with, after a Treaty, all the articles of which have been violated ; after having seen my retreat penetrated by numerous assassins, all sent by the Bour- bons ; after having seen the French Ministers intriguing at Vienna, to wrest from me the asylum to which I was reduced, aud to tike from my wile and son the States which had been guaranteed to them ; from that son; whose birth inspired you with so lively a joy, and who ought to have been to ail the Sovereigns a sacred pledge. All these attempts made in violation of plighted faith, have re- stored me to mv throne and my liberty. Frenchmen ! soon I shall be in my capital! I comc stir- bunded by my brave brethren in arms— after having de- vered our Provinces of the South, and my good City of , yons from the reign of fanaticism, which is that of the iourbons. Fifteen days have sufficed hie to unite these lithful warriors, the honour of fiance; and before the Oth of this month, your happy Emperor, the Sovereign f your choice, will put to flight those slothful Princes, ( ho wish to render you tributary to foreigners, and the ontempt of Europe. France shall still be the happiest ountry in the world. The French shall still be liifc Sreat Nation— Paris shall again become the Queen of Cities, as well as the seat of sciences and arts. In concert with you I will take measures, in order that : he State may be governed constitutionally, and that a vise liberty may never degenerate into licentiousness. I will mitigate to the satisfaction of all those imposts become odious, which the Bourbons gave you their princely word they would abolish under the title of Droits Revnis, and which they have re- established under the title it indirect impositions „ - .• Property shall be without distinction respected and lacred, as well as individual lil> evi v.. The general tranquility shall be constantly the object of my efforts; commerce, our flourishing manufactures; and agriculture, which under my reign attained so high a pros- perity, shall be relieved from the. enormous imposts with which ail ephemeral Government, have burthened them. Every thing shall be restored to order, and, the dissipa- tion of the Finances of the State to gratify the luxury of the Court shall be immediately repressed. No vengeance, it is far from my heart: the Bourbons have get a price upon my head, and I pardon them. If they fall into my power 1 will protect them; I will de- liver them to their Allies, if they wish it, or to that foreign country where their Chief has already reigned nineteen years, aud where he may continue this glorious reign. To this my vengeance is limited. Be calm, Parisians, and you National Guards of that noble City— you who have already rendered such great sertices— you who, but for treason, would have, been enabled to defend it for some hours longer, against those shewn to the Duke of Wellington, by appointing J- him Generalissimo of all the troops in the vicini- - of France, in consequence of which his Grace set out for Brussels, ^ NETHERLANDS. On the 17th inst. at the Hague, the Prince Sovereign was proclaimed king of the United Netherlands, with great pomp. 8 We fear, however, that a great proportion of the Belgian inhabitants bear no great good will i i the new government. It would appear that 1 Ghent, Brussels, and other places, demonstra- - ' ons have taken place in favour of Bonaparte. ; DOMESTIC AND MISCELLANEOUS. j Lord Cochrane, this afternoon, went into the 11 House of Commons and took his seat, lnforma- | on of this circumstance being given, he was, af- some resistance, secured by the Police Offi- ers, and conveyed to his old quarters. Yesterday, the Coroner's Jury upon the body of Jane Watson, who was shot in Burlington- street, during the late riots, brought in a verdict | of wilful murder against the four soldiers who were i stationed at Mr. Robinson's windows.

STATE or THE METROPOLIS.— Notwithstand- ing tile silence of the London Papers on the sub- ject, we are informed by our private letters from the metropolis, that the public irritation on the subject of the Corn- Bill is far from being allayed. The walls are yet chalked, and placardeds with printed hand- bills of a most inflammatory descrip- tion ; and from the ability with which most of them are penned, it is obvious that they are not the pro- duction of the lowest classes.— The military are employed night aud day in patrolling the streets.

The Hon. mover touched upon the different subjects which were discussed in Congress, and moved for the production of all papers connected with those discussions. Lord Castlereagh answered in a speech which comprised four hours in the delivery. He stated that Spain and Portugal had agreed to the abo- j lition of the Slave Trade at the end of eight years, and expressed his hope that, by negociation, those Powers would consent to a still more contracted period. With reference to this question, he ob- served, that the proceedings ot Congress were not closed— a sort of standing commission being formed to continue the negociations on this parti- cular subject. The principal Powers, not inter- ested in the trade, were to judge whether the period demanded for its continuance was or was not too long; and, if the latter appeared to be the case, they intended to take measures to pro- cure colonial produce from those colonies only which were not cultivated by slaves In speak- ing of Naples, Lord Castlereagh no where gave Murat the title of King, but designated him Mar- shal Murat, or the person exercising the govern- ment of that country. It follows that Murat's title has not been recognized. From hence we fear he is connected with Bonaparte. Mr. Whitbread's motion was finally agreed to.

JOTlCE is hereby given, that the Commis- si We regret that J. Barleycorn's final Reply to A. B was received at so late an hour, that we were necessitated to defer its insertion until Our next Publication. FROM the very confused, contradictory, and ' even absurd statements in the French Papers re- lative to the advance of Bonaparte, and the means taken to frustrate his daring design, it is impos- sible ' to form any certain conclusions as to the probability of his succeeding in his adventure, unless we take this very confusion of statements as a proof that the cause of Bonaparte is much more prosperous than it is wished we should be- lieve. Indeed, the very fact of his continued and rapid progress toward Paris, with little or no in- terruption, evinces that his partisans are not few. IN the event of a civil war devouring France, we would most strongly utter our protest against making ourselves a party in any confederacy which may be formed to overawe that country. It is, however, too probable, that the English Govern- ment will be the first to enter the lists. Already is this determination evinced by the sending off of troops and warlike stores; but we will venture to predict, in case that Bonaparte does so far suc- ceed, that any confederacy that may be formed against him will fall infinitely short of the one which was preliminary to his expulsion from the throne. On that occasion the public opinion— that opinion before which even despots must yield— was decidedly against the Ex Emperor, i They had experienced his tyranny and his injus- tice ; but, by contrast, this feeling is in a great A few days ago, as Mr. Thomas Harris. of Ma- ryport. and a young lady, were returning from Workington on horse back, at a quick step ; on passing- along Derwent Bridge, t. he lady's horse gave a sudden spring and precipitated its burden over the parapet of the bridge into the river Der- wen't. •• Mr. Harris immediately quitted his horse, plunged into the river, and rescued the lady from a watery grave.

Yesterday afternoon an Officer arrived With dispatches from Lord Fitzroy Somerset, dated on 1 the 19th. They announced Bonaparte's move- ment from Autun to Auxerre, which he reached on the 17th.— We have since received the Moni- teur and other Papers of Sunday last. The for- mer merely mentions his departure from Autun oh the 16th. An Extraordinary Courier on Sun- day morning brought the intelligence of his ha- ving entered Auxerre, and of his being expected to occupy Joigny, about 70 miles from Paris, on Sunday night. The extraordinary rapidity of his march has as yet been delayed by no opposi- tion and nd obstacles. " But," according to the Gazette de France, " his forte diminishes its lie advances, and he arrived at Auxerre with less than six thousand men." It adds, that " he usually is a mile and a half before his advanced guard in an open coach, escorted by only 20 dragoons." This paper concludes that as no opposition has yet been made to him, " it is the intention of Government to let him advance to the heights of Melun," where an army of 28,000 men was to be assembled on Sunday last. If Bonaparte has really so small a force, what can be the reason of that confidence he assumes, and that haste with which, in approaching the capital, he would seetn to be approaching to his certain destruction? For the Moniteur and all the other papers breathe nothing but attachment and devotion to the King— assure us that volun- teers enrol themselves by thousands, and that the troops burn with ardor to prove their loyalty to the legitimate Sovereign. Is any plot prepared which is to burst forth at Paris , as soon as he ap- proaches it ? Will not the troops fight against him ? Does he know this ? and is this the cause of his confidence and audacity ? Some believe this to be the case, for if it had not been, they say, Would not Ney have ventured to attack him long before he had reached the point which he has now reached ? and they remark also, that the King himself seems to be of this opinion, by hinting repeatedly at the invasion of France by foreign armies, if the French themselves do not put down the tyrant. These papers state, that the Prus- sians hav'e approached Thionville, which they will attack if Bonaparte should succeed— that the Emperor Alexander has declared he will march 600,000 men— that the Austrians began their march for Italy and. France on the 12th— that the Prussians and Bavarians were to march on the 16th, and that the Duke of Wellington had been appointed Generalissimo of all these Armies. This display of foreign force, it is said, would not have been made had the King been able to rely upon domestic force for the security of his throne. Without giving any opinion ourselves upon this rensoning, it is obvious that the event cannot long remain doubtful, and that the crisis has probably, ere this, arrived, which is te prove whether the troops will act against Bonaparte or not. Having reached Auxerre on the 17th, he might be near Melun on the 19th or 20th. But it is said to be his intention when he gets near the Seine, which crosses the direct road from Auxerre to Melun, to turn to the Fontainbleau road and attempt Paris on that side. It was supposed he might reach Fontainbleau on the 20th, Monday last. The Papers assure us, that Lyons has been re- taken by the king's troops, and that the Prefect, who had quitted it with Monsieur, has received orders to return to it. The French Funds, which had been 06| on Friday, were 68 1 - 1 Oth on Saturday ; but the news of Bonaparte's advance to Auxerre did not reach Paris till late on Saturday night, or early on Sunday morning. Such are the important Contents of the Papers of the 19th. We have avoided mixing them with the intelligence contained in the private letters of that and the preceding day's date. They state in substance as follows That Lyons opened her gates willingly to Bo- naparte, and that all the troops joined him— that his force increased as it rolled on— and that his advanced guard consists of 5000 cavalry, which was expected to be at Sens, halt- way between Joigny and Melun, on Sunday; that all the pre cious moveables of the Royal Family were about to be sent of; that Mortier had returned from Lisle with the information that the garrison was not to be depended on— that Count d'Erlon, who had been ordered to be shot, had been released by the troops, after his eyes had been bandaged th receive the fatal fire, and had been declared Governor of the fortress. Mortier was sent off to Paris. It is added, that Ney has returned to Paris, with the tidings that his troops absolutely refuse to fight against Bonaparte. Several passengers arrived in town this morn- ing from Dover, where they arrived yesterday from Calais and Boulogne, particularly the latter place, have brought most lamentable reports. Outstripping even the velocity ascribed t6 him by the Paris Papers, and in direct contradiction with their contents, they assert that he actually ENTERED PARIS ON SATURDAY LAST. ' ings of the Allies themselves, who have shewn to i the world, that they possess his principles with- out participating in his talents. It was the power of public opinion that mainly overthrew Napoleon Bonaparte ; and the same powerful engine is able to build anew what it had before demolished. THE Corn- Bill has passed the Lords. In case it receive the Royal Assent, it yet remains for the people to petition for its REPEAL. Let them still persevere— let them display the true characteristics of Englishmen by not being un- daunted at defeat, but return to their constitu- tional opposition with more energy after every rencontre. By this means they will succeed. But, above all things, be let them PEACEABLE. Their adversaries will then have nothing wherewith to reproach them, and their cause w ill therein find its best advocate.

The Nobility, Gentry, and others of the County of Cumberland, are respectfully informed, that it is the intention of the Proprietor of this Paper to Publish a SUPPLEMENTARY VOLUME of the HISTORY OF CUMBERLAND, which is de- signed to embrace the state of agriculture, popula- tion, church- livings, antiquities, Sfc. 41° ^ ie present period. It is now upwards of 20 years since the local History of this County was published; and, in the interval, such great alterations and improvements have taken place as well warrant the appearance of an additional and Supplementary Volume, which it is proposed to embellish with a number of plates — amongst others, those representing the English, Scotch. and Irish Gates, which are now removed, but which the antiquary will be glad to see thus brought to " his mind's eye," and rescued from oblivion. Gentlemen, and the Clergy, desirous qf furnish- ing any additional information, respecting their domains, antiquities, parishes, biography, or what- ever concerns a local History, will much oblige the Editor by transmitting such intelligence with as little deltiy as may be convenient. It is supposed that' Lord Cochrane's mind ( whose apprehension is noticed in another col- umn) has been affected by the late proceedings, and that all his conduct of late has been the re- suit of insanity. He is at present confined in the strong room, in the King's Bench prison.

The Treasury reports state, that a Loan of not less than Thirty- six Millions will be required im- mediately after the recess I We have good authority for stating, that the reason the name of Mr. Fawcett, M. P. for this city, did not appear in the first division on the Corn Bill was, the worthy representative having paired off a short time before it took place, under the impression that the debate must be adjourned to another day, from the number of ihembers he observed desirous of speaking, and some of them usually taking an, hour or two to express their sentiments.— Of the honour and disinterestedness of Mr. Faweett's whole sonduct while in Parlia- ment, and his particular desire to promote any measure which his constituents represented to him as tending to the prosperity of the city ( especially in a commercial point of view), we have iiad nu- merous instances : and though the Hon. Gentle- man, owing to circumstances which have been already explained, had not the satisfaction of pre- senting the Petition from Carlisle against the Corn- Bill; we are convinced, both from his public con- duct, and from his confidential communications, i that he was averse to it. If he thought that the I agricultural interest of the country required a I temporary protection ; yet he was convinced that the rate established, at which importation should be permitted, was much tob high, and that, at all events, the public ought to have had the pledge Of a revision when a more settled state of affairs on the continent, and an equalization in the value of money, should be effected; which, Mr. F. thinks, might have been done by limiting the ope- ration Of the Act to a period of one of two years.

The following singular circumstance occurred lately in the village, of Ugston, by Lauder. A pair of pigeons, having taken up their abode in a dwelling- house in that village, built a nest there, in which the hen laid two eggs. During the time of her incubation,. an intimacy commenced be- tween her and the family cat, which soon became so. close, that they were very seldom seen apart 5 and, however incredible it may appear, yet it : s a well authenticated fact, that, as often as the pigeon left the nest, the cat was seen tj> lake her place. Thus matters proceeded till the chickens were Hatched, when puss's predilection for the offspring became as apparent as it had been for the mother, and continued till the period. of their having become full- fledged, when a painful sepa- ration ensued— painful as it respected puss. But, regardless of her feelings, they took up their or- dinary residence in the roof. Hither the incon- solable cat's eyes were often, directed: unable however, to brook a separation longer, she clam- bered up to their abode, and, with evident satis- faction, seated herself contiguous to them.

Here the weeping widow stray'd, From her husband's bosom torn, And the young enamour'd maid Doom'd in virgin bloom to mourn. Lost to freedom's soothing smile, Here the lonely captive lay, Dismal vaults and dungeons vile Hid him from the chearful day. Ancient story's sad detail Forms a catalogue of woes; And pathetic songs bewail The cruel wrath of kindred foes.

Bonaparte, instruc- ted as I have said in the school of the revolution, and of Mirabeau in the profligate disregard of every mortal tye, is in the habit of employing instruments of this cha- racter, whose talents he himself knows and has proved, and whose condition and habits place them below suspicion." tends, that have given their support to the remit- the elevi of Sioyes in cunning. aerators* The real farmers know that the bubble will injure their permanent interests. I heard one of the mongrels declare that wheat should not be sold under : 35s. the Carlisle bushel. The | man, I found ou enqiuiy, had taken a few acres of sheep walk, tin which he had expended what little money he possessed in the fruitless attempt to make it into wheat land. This is not an un- common case ; and these men have the modesty to expect that their folly is to be rewarded by the people continuing to be taxed in a double price for provisions. Carlisle, March 23,1815. A. 3. by legislative interposition. " If, my Lords," said he, " it be true, that Providence has implanted in the breast of man a principle of industry, and a sagacious feeling, that point out the manner in which advantages are to be gained— those princi- ples are more likely to produce good effects in trade and commerce, than any interference of the legislature. No persons, I believe, are more rea- uTiie. i, h. a PARLIAMENTARY REGISTER. To the EDITOR of the CARLISLE JOURNAL. , " Questions may be asked by a fool Which a wise man cannot answer for his sou!." ANON. I am far from insinuating myself to be the lat- ter character, or your correspondent, S. S. to be the former: indeed, he, it seems, is the wise man of a thousand. The artifice of defending a bad cause by ask- ing questions is not new; neither am I the first to expose it. Independently of the absurdity of expecting those who differ from us to be our drudges, it may be that the questions have no bearing on the subject; then, if the person that undertakes the arduous task of exposing tiieir im- pertinence, remonstrate, the answer is, " I only asked a question." But, however, before I take my leave of S. 3. I will expose the folly of his first question ; and, were it not wasting time aud paper, I would let him see with what facility questions may be asked. His first question is as follows, " Is the free export of grain permitted from france or re- strained when it reaches 19s. a quarter." This question ought to be read in all churches and chapels, and stuck up on the market- cross of every town in the kingdom. Your correspondent admits himself to be friend of the remunerators. That one of those should venture to bring so nearly into contrast the conduct in this instance of the French land- owners and of our remunerators is a strong in- stance of the imbecility of the progress of bad measures. I forbear to say more, ' tis a ticklish subject. But I need say no more— it is better understood by the thousand than S. S. seems to think. ". But who is this S. S. that asks so many ques tions in a breath, I hear your readers say. I be- lieve that I have found him out; lie is none other than Dryden's Simple Simon. " He trudged along, not knowing what he sought, " And whistled as he went for want of thought." That keen pryer into the human mind, the mo- dern Pindar, makes a fondness for asking questions as much a proof of absence of thought as whist- ling; then the couplet, altered ( I dare not say amended) to meet this suggestion, will read in . the 2d. line— " And questions asked for want of thought • To be serious, if S. S. think that he can deduce from his questions any instruction for the thousand, it is very desireable that he should do it Andl I. for one, if any degree of conviction be produced, will readily avow it; indeed it will give, me great pleasure to find that I have been mistaken, and that the measure, which I hav contributed my humble efforts to oppose, is found- ed in wisdom. But this conviction can never be produced by any thing like S. S.' s communica- tion, which he might very properly have entitled, » •< Cursory observations in the manner of Mr. ] Curwen." The people have been very indignantly told to ! leave the corn question to the WISDOM of their representatives. By which I believe is meant the wisdom of the gentlemen of the House of Commons. I, for one, have the highest possible respect for the wisdom of those gentlemen, which I believe to be only surpasssed by their disin- terestedness ; and of this fact I doubt not the transactions of a few ensuing days giving us most ample confirmation. But I must express my sorrow that the popularity of the most popular ministry that has existed in the short space of my cognizance of public transactions should have been sacrificed to the artiiiccs of the meanest fac- tion. For with the loss of their popularity they must lose a great proportion of their utility. A great deal of harm has been done to the community by what is called speculating in farms. The value of the produce of land advanced so rapidly, far outstripping taxation and rent, that skill became little necessary io the cultivation of C1RCUMSTANTIAL. DETAILS OF BONAPARTE'S PREPARATORY MEASURES AT ELBA. ( From a Recent Pamphlet) " Bonaparte, than whom no man is more quick- sighted in advantages, was scarcely recovered from the stunning fail which he received fro. n fortune, than he saw that his state was not with- out hope and remedy ; that the gilded pinnicle of height and greatness was still in his sight, though indeed infinitely above his present reach; and that though bruised, and confined from any pre- sent attempt, still that his prison was the horizon, and that his wing was unbroken. In his vast treasure,— vast to an. individual of merely private wants, he possessed the means of purchasing, re- warding, and daily feeding and paying for service, in his guard and garrison,— in his followers and in his islanders, he possessed that . seminal princi- ple which time and the ripening sun of fortune might develope into an army ; and the three Com- missioners, planted as sentinels over him, had the mouths and bellies of Cerberus without his nose and without his eyes and ears,— three well- fed, well- fatted, and therefore well- contented scavoir vivre, who, in chansons a boire, water parties, and daily and nightly revels, enjoyed themselves as if in the country quarters of A subscription hunt, and totally forgot that there were any monarchs in the world but themselves. The fable of Ulys- ses and his companions in the island Of Circe was here repeated, but with this difference,— that Circe never possessed such sleek porkers, and that the imperial Ulysses walked over the pros- trate stye without a desire of awakening them in. to humanity and consciousness. " Such, therefore, were the resistless tempta- tions, with which the imprudence of the allies, and the returning smiles of fortune, wooed the deposed Emperor to another attempt; and is it a subject of reasonable astonishment, that when such were the facilities, and such was the prize, he should have resolved upon the contest? There is reason to believe, therefore, that he meditated this enterprise almost within the first weeks of his arrival at Elba; and he accordingly began a sys- tematic plan, as curious as it has been effectual. Three things were mainly necessary to his success;— the first, to deceive the sentinels whom the imbecile jealousy of the allied powers had imposed over him; the second, to augment his treasure and to discipline and increase his small personal force; and the third, to maintain an un- discovered intercourse and communication with his active friends and partisans in France and Italy. " He continued to promote all these prepara- tive means with the same ability. In order to deceive the eyes of those by whom he imagined himself to be watched, he seemed occupied Only in the ordinary pursuits of an active mind, now at leisure and in repose. He rose, according to his former habits, very early, and then read or wrote intently ; his books were general literature, chief- ly history; and the subject of his writings was his own campaigns. Every thing was seemingly most carelessly, but actually most studiously, open to the eyes ef all t his mode of life was known and discussed by every one in the island; and the daily papers of Europe admired this easy and graceful unbending of a mighty mind. After a breakfast, in which he seemed to descend without any force into the simple habits of private life, he proceeded to review his miniature army; and though he employed an evident care and atten- tion in their exercise and discipline, it was im puted very naturally to a taste remaining from former habits. It is natural that he should be delighted with the shadow who had formerly wei'lded the mighty reality. He was merely be- holding that in a drama, which he had so recently acted upon the ample theatre of the world. Upon the termination of this review, he took his morning's ride, accompanied by Bertrand, Drouet, and others of his suite. In course of this pro- gress he gave audience to all whom he met; and with his usual dexterity, where his purposes re- quired it, satisfied and conciliated all. It was by this course of life that he effectually deceived his sentinels into the most unsuspicious, confidence. " When he was visited, as he frequently was, by eminent strangers, and where there was no personal or political reason for their exclusion, or for any restriction in admitting them, he exhibit ed the same familiar character; and seemed am- bitious only Of the fame and report, that he pro- ved himself abOVe his fortune by his tranquil sub- mission lo it. To philosophers and men of sci- ence he talked of the Institute, the Royal Society, and the new Chemistry and Galvanism of the day,— to English gentlemen of their improved agriculture, and their happy laws,— and to mili- tary men ot writing the historical memoirs of his own campaigns; He seemed alike so sincere in every thing, that all travellers returned with the same report, and I believe Lord Sheffield and Sir Joseph Banks were about to send him some Leicestershire rams to cross his Elbese Sheep. " He managed his correspondence with the same dexterity and artifice; One of the medi- ums of liis intercourse with Paris is suspected to have been the celebrated actor Talma. This man is the common favourite of the late Empe- ror and of the leading men at Paris. He was therefore a most suitable instrument for their confidential intercourse and agency. At a very critical period, he requested, and procured per- mission to visit his former master, and to arrange for him the dramatic representations in the court HOUSE OF LORDS. WEDNESDAY, March 15 Petitions against the Corn- Biil were presented from Essex, Farring- don Without, Farringdon Within, Bromley, St. Paul's, Mary le- Bone, Southward, St. . Mary, Ber- mondsey, Stephney, Paisley, Islington, Stewar- ton, Greenock, Birmingham, and a vast number of other places, against the Corn- Bill.— A few petitions were also presented on the other side from Ireland, On the Order of the Day for the Second reading of the Corn- Bill being read, Lord Liverpool rose, and advocated the measure. He was aware that in some of the ancient republics— that in Holland, Venice, and Genoa, a different system might ex- ist, because they rose to such a state of prosperity from commerce, that their population was increas- ed beyond the number which their agriculture could support. Besides, though their population was great, compared with the prodii. ee Of their soil, still . it was small 011 the scale of general com- parison with Other countries: therefore, what was good policy in them, in applying themselves ex- clusively to commerce, and storing up grain in store houses for years of necessity, could not apply to countries, whose population was 10 or 15 mil- lions, and whose resources were founded upon a mixed system— upon both agriculture and com- merce. The Noble Lord then contended, at con- siderable length, that the tendency of the present Bill would be to make bread as cheap as it could possibly be,, consistent with the encouragement of the farmer, and to prevent that fluctuation of price, which is one of the greatest evils in society. In arguing against the objection, that the measure in contemplation would force manufacturers to emigrate, and prevent our traders from competi- tion in the foreign market,— his Lordship stated, that the success of commerce and manufactures did not depend so much on the price of labour as on other circumstances : the price of fuel, the ad- peace to Europe against that psvr so often disturbed it. FRIDAY.— In a Committee of Ways and Means, considerable sums were gran ten fur various pur- poses ;— amopgst others, £ 20,000 towards making roads and building bridges in the Highlands of Scotland; and £' 50,000 towards defraying the expenees of an inland Navigation, from the East- ern to the Western Sea, from. Inverness by Fort William.— On the former resolution.-, being pro- posed, the Speaker. said that he was one of'the practice. Now, my l ords, if every effort of the legislature to divert capital into particular chan- nels has uniformly and without exception opera- ted to the diminution of national wealth, I will ask you, whether there is any one article, to the production of which human labour is necessary, that calls for the application of this principle more clearly than that which forms the basis of the sus- tenance of the whole country ? The Noble Earl informs us, that, if he could have acted upon this principle, in former times, when our ancestors adopted mistaken measures of prohibition, although be might have opposed them with respect to other articles, yet even then he would have made corn an exception to the general principle of free trade. Now, my Lords, so much at variance is my opi- nion with that of the Noble Earl, that, if 1 could reconcile my mind to prohibitory regulations on every other branch of commerce, in the case of the trade in corn I should be decidedly against them. The trade in corn differs, in this point of view, from every other— you cannot increase the supply without increasing the demand. In other articles of trade the demand can be forseen, and an adequate supply may be provided. But, with respect to corn, the more you increase the supply the more you must increase the demand; and this general principle your Lordships will see strongly exemplified in the enlarged population of this cOuntry. Now as the increase of population far exceeds the ratio of produce, it unanswerably follows, that at some period or other any given country will not b « ahle to produce a sufficient supply of corn for its increased population— and thus the ' Necessity of a free trade in that article is evident."— Lord G. proceeded to explode the fallacy of the proposed object of the Bill, which was that of reducing the price of grain ;— this was speculative, whilst' it* immediate effect, in creat- ing an immediate increase of ^ rie'e, M as but too apparent. At all events th'e mode now pursued would cause a useless sacrifice of national wealth and prosperity to pursue a precarious purpose.— He was aware that it was possible to grow corn enough here for our own consumption ; but the real question was, whether this would not be dis- Commissioners appointed to carry the- act.-, for making roads anid bridges into . . first there was a distinction between the ciii! ' Ml military roads, but by the last act the e ar.; ^ . ment of the whole had been placed under tlie same Commissioners. lie would state ihe pro- gress which had been made in these roads: < 160 * miles of good road had already been completed, 260 more were in a state of forwardness, and 170 miles were under consideration. The expenu of these works was defrayed, one , half by ti i; persons interested, and the other half by the pub- lic. The Some plan was adopted with respect to the bridges, of which there were thirteen in num- ber. Tit o of these were of cast iron, of 150 feet span ; the rest were of stone, and by the means of these works, roads uninterrupted by any cur;\;. t whatever were established through the northern parts of this island. Roads were also established to the western coast for the convenience of the fisheries, and for more easy transport of the fish to the soiith. Roads were likewise formed to the eastern obast, which had hitherto been considered mare importuosum, and an easy communication from thence had been completely accomplished. The expense hitherto incurred in these under- takings Was 150,000/. Of that sum, the expense of the brMges was 70,000/. of which the public bore a portion of 30,000/. and private indiv. duala • 10,000/— all excesses of estimate falling on pri- vate persons. The whole of these works, it was expected, would be completed m two years. As to the lofond Navigation,— the work liud already- exceeded the original estimate, which vw 500,000/., 20,000/. The line of eommuuicatitm had, howeier, been almost finished, and in three years it would be complete. Various persons1 were consulted upon the utility of this navigati*,', and they all considered it of tiie utmost impor- tance. vantages of capital and credit, and machinery, were of vastly more consequence; and it would j abiing better be found, that in many parts where manufactures have been most successful, provisions have been most dear. For instance;— on account of capital, and the invention of machinery, some articles manufactured in India have been imitated, and sold at a cheaper rate here, where the wages are 3s. 6d. a day, than in India, where they scarcely amount to 3d. His Lordship concluded, after adducing a variety of arguments in favour of de- pending upon ourselves rather than upon foreign supply. i The Earl of Carlisle was decidedly of Opinion, I that the protecting price of 80s. was so high, that | the operation of it, he feared, would severely visit the lower classes of society. It would fail heavily upon the labourer, who Would then be no I longer competent to subsist on the means which i he Could embrace, and- whose only refuge would be parochial aid. His Lordship had also his : doubts of the expediency of the Bill, indeed, he doubted if it were sought* for by the farmers in general, or whether it- would reach the object which its promoters had in view. With reference to the opinions of the farmers, lie could, with confidence, speak from those of his own posses- j sionsin Yorkshire, Cumberland, and Northumber- land— from, hone of whom did he receive any real reason for the approval of the Bill. The silence of those parts he attributed to an iudif- 1 ference upon the subject; Here the Noble Earl j adverted to his own farming expefience : in ai tract of country favourable to the growth of sheep, i one year's wool was but 7s. a stone— the next it was 24s. and afterwards it could have been sold at 32s. This change was not owing to the high ! price of labour quite the contrary. The manu- facturer took the opportunity of speculating deep- ly, and embarked his capital largely, during the fluctuations which had arisen. The Noble Earl concluded, by expressing his doubts of the policy of this Bill He was not convinced that the pro- tecting price had been maturely conceived, or that the farmer had concurred in that standard. Lord Grenville, in a long and very able speech, deprecated the idea of affording protection to one class of the community at the expence of another. Because manufactures were protected by legisla- tive interference, that was no reason why the le- gislature should interfere with the price of corn. Let every thing be discussed substantially upon its own merit. But there was a large portion of the community who are interested neither in ma- nufactures nor agriculture : these persons are al- ready subject to one impolitic restraint, with re- spect to the prohibition of foreign manufactures, — and, by the operation of this net/ prohibition : on the importation of foreign com, they will be I exposed to slill greater disadvantage. In such situation, would it not be most extraordinary to say to these people—" Because you are already , oppressed by favours granted to one set of per- 1 sons, it is therefore just and proper that you should be more oppressetl by the extension of similar favours to others I"— With respect to the policy of legislative interference in manufactures, his Lordship expressed himself decidedly hostile to it. Such interference originated in times when the principles of national wealth and trade were badly understood, and he was happy to perceive, that the country in general was of the same opi- nion. He had that morning received the result of a meeting of the woollen- manufacturers of Gloucestershire, which strongly corroborated his opinion; they strongly asserted the mischievous consequences of restrictions upon foreign manu- factures— all trade they asserted ought to be free — they wished to abrogate every exclusive system of commerce, and, amongst others, that of corn In a vein of nervous eloquence his Loraship here proceeded to decry the erroneous idea, that eve- ry alteration which takes place in the moral con- stitution of society may be immediately remedied Bio MSCELLANEOUS NEWS: ablmg an effective capital from a safer and better ^ direction ? The vine can be cultivated in this country, but would it be desirable it should be so c forced at an immense disadvantage in point of soil, which capital certainly may overcome, but at ^ a loss too great for the tiller to encounter, and too unfair for the consumer to bear ?— With a manly feeling his Lordship next proceeded to animadvert lip on another point that had been ^ largely dwelt upon by the supporters of the Bill , — he meant our dependence on foreign, and per- haps hostile countries, for a supply of grain ; but t the experience of the last 50 years proved this apprehension to be wholly imaginary. The epi- thet of " natural enemy," which it was attempted ' to make a popular topic, he detested as both illi- ( beral and unjust. He saw no reason why we should not open a fair reciprocal intercourse with France; that policy was indeed of a crooked and ; narrow character which proscribed a nation with whom we could hold an important interchange. But a great misconception prevailed upon this point. The terror of a French influx of grain seemed to have paralysed the reasoning faculties of individuals in this county; since the prohibito- ; ry price in France is 49s. and all the demands which were made upon her granaries could not increase the price beyond 47s.:— 145,000 quar- ters had been drawn from that country, and yet the cupidity with which such purchases were \ made could not send up the price in that market. ! It was vain to say, that the food of this country, I which comprised from thirteen to fifteen million quarters of wheat, and as much of other grain, could be effected by a foreign supply, upon which i it " appeared to have had, in point of price ( no) | wide criterion), so limited an influence. I The Earls of l. auderdale and Selkirk spoke in favour of the measure; and on a division taking place tkere appeared in favour of the l ili a majority of 144 to 17.— The Bill was consequent- ly read a second time. THURSDAY.— After several petitions against the Corn- Bill had been received; Earl Stanhope proposed his promised motion for relieving the farmer without raising the price of bread, by taking off the Taxes on Agriculture; which was lost on a division of 30 to 1. FRIDAY.— Petitions against the Corn- Bill were presented from Bury, Hackney, Margate, West- minster ( signed by 35,000), county of Renfrew, Wooten Basset, Dundee, St. George's, Hornsey, Ac- Some discussion took place on Lord Grenville's submitting a motion to the House, founded on a I Petition of the City of London against the Corn- | Bill,— that the Petitioners be heard by counsel and evidence at the bar:— This motion was re- jected, on the ground Of being contrary to the custom of Parliament, by 54 to 11. ! In the Committee, Lord Grey proposed 72s. as the protecting price; but tins was negatived without a division— as was a clause, submitted by- Lord Grenville, for the importation of foreign corn, if the quartern loaf should exceed 12d. in i London.— The Bill was ordered to be read a third i time on Monday. HOUSE OF COMMONS. THURSDAY Mr Whitbread, in reference to the existing state of affairs in France, expressed his confident hope that this Country wbuld not i j interfere in the internal affairs of France. Lord < Castlereagh said that it never had been the poli- cy nor the practice of this country to dictate to France ; but what might be the line of conduct i determined on by his Royal Highness, in con- - cert with his Allies, on the present extraordinary ; posture of things in that country, the House - would not expect him to state, lie hoped Mr. - Whitbread was not an exception to the universal feeling in favour of the power who had given A moving paper states, that the Duke of Wellington has been appointed Generalissimo of the troops in the Netherlands, and ordered to pro- ceed thither without delay, to assume the com- mand; and that transports have been taken up, and directions have been used to expedite 6,000 troops from Ireland, and three regiments of cav- alry from London, to join his Grace's army,. We understand, says a Morning Paper,' that Colonel Campbell was absent from Elba when Bonaparte sailed. He had gone over for a few days to Florence, and was on his return on the 27th February, when he actually Saw the small flotilla uf the Ex- Emperor from the vessel on which he was on board, Out could not distinguish what vessels they were. He landed on the 28th, and found the nest empty, the bird flown. Two regiments of cavalry find other troops are said to be under orders for Belgium, and military stores and provisions of every kind for the supply of the garrisons there are ordered to be shipped forthwith. Transports have been taken up, to the quanti- ty of 8,000 tons, to convey ordnance stotes im- mediately to Belgium, and a hot press has taken place on the river Thames. The military depart- ments, we are told, are in incessant activity, and a courier has been sent off to the Duke of Wel- lington, with instructions to his Grace to repair with all haste to Flanders, and there to assume the command of the British forces. In the London Gazette a reward of 306gs. is offered fbr the apprehension of Lord Cochrane. He is described us being 5 feet 11 inches high, full eyes, red whiskers and eye brows. The Prince Regent's Cottage in Windsor Park has already cost £ 100,000. At the Essex Assizes four ruffians were con - victed of various murders; viz. W. Seymour, for the murder of Belsham, the milk- man, at Malden ; Thomas Scondling. for the murder of John Hold- ing, at. West Ham ; and two others for shooting a poor shoemaker near Saffron Walden. They were all executed at Chelmsford. A Revolution has taken place at Tunis. The old Bey and family has been massacred, and the government usurped by his cousin. From the accounts which are in preparation to be laid before Parliament,- relative to the Ci vil List, it appears tliac the charges for dhe year ending 5th April, 1814, were £ 1,361,551, 19s. 4'^ d.; and for three quarters bt'a year only, tithe » th January last, £ 1,436,717, 2s.
