LONDON, March 23. 0; i Tuesday last there was a very pompous military parade in the court of the Thuilleries, on which occasion Bonaparte made a pompous ad- dress to his soldiers, of which the following is the most material part:— " Soldiers! I came into France witli 600 men, because I reckoned on the love of the people, . nd the recollection of the old soldiers. I have not been deceived in my ex- pectation Soldiers! I thank you for it. The glory of this which we have just done, all belongs to the people and to you. Mine is confined to having known and ap- preciated you." " Soldiers! the throne of the Bourbons was illegitimate, since it was re- established bv foreign hands: since it had As was foreseen, Bonaparte has entered the capital, and the Revolution is most complete in an its parts— The very interesting intelligence contained in the Paris papers comes down to the th, from which, and from authentic documents, we learn that in every place from his embarkation to his ulterior destination he was received both by the military and the people with a wildness of joy — every where the King's troops joining those of the Invader; even those places which were reckoned most loyal ( Lyons for instance) ex- pressed their unequivocal satisfaction.— Before giving an abstract of the French papers, we shall present our readers with the following picturesque . transactions of the ' 20th, on Bonaparte's move j from Fontainbleau to Paris,— contained in a | ministerial paper ( and therefore not to be sus- , pected of exaggeration), communicated by an eye- witness : — " Early on the morning of the 20th prepara- . tions were made on both sides for the encounter j which was expected to take place. The French army was driven up en etages on three lines, the intervals and the flanks armed with batteries. The centre occupied the Paris road. The ground from Fontainbleau to Milun is a continual decli- vity, so that on emerging from the forest, you have a clear view of the country before , you, wlii s', on the other hand, those above can easily descry whatever appears on the eminence. An awful silence, broken only at times by peals Of; martial music, intended to confirm the loyality | of the troops by repeating the royal airs of Vive Henry Quatre el La Belle Gabrielle, or by the ! voice of the Commanders and the march of the | divisions to their appointed ground, pervaded the King's army. Ail was anxious expectation ; the Chiefs, conscious that a moment would de- cide the fate of the Bourbon dynasty,— and the troops, perhaps, secretly awed at the thought of meeting in hostility the man whom they had been formerly accustomed to obey and follow. On the side of Fontainbleau no sound, as of an nrmy rushing to battle, was heard. If the enemy was advaoung, his troops evidently moved in ' silence. Perhaps his heart had failed him, arid he had retreated during the night. If so france was saved and free. At length a light trampling Of horses became audible. It approached: an open carriage, attended by a few hussars and dragoons, appeared on the skirts of the forest. It drove down the hill with the rapidity of light- ning ; it reached the advanced posts—' Long live the Emperor J burst from the astonished soldiery, 1 Napoleon ! Napoleon the Great !' spread from rank to rank ; for bare- headed, Bertrand seated at his right, and Drouet ot his left, Na- poleon continued his course, now waving his hand, now opening his arms to the soldiers; whom he called his friends, his companions in arms, whose honour, whose glories, whose country ( the Tyrant said), he now came to restore. All discipline was forgotten, disobeyed, and insulted; the Commander- in- Chief took flight; thousands rushed on his passage; acclamations rent the sky. At that moment his own guard descended been proscribed bv the will of the nation, expressed by all our national assemblies; since, finally, it offered no security but tt. the interests of a small number rof arrogant men, whose pretensions are opposed to our rights-. ' Soldiers : the Imperial throne can alone guarantee the rights of the people-, and especiallv the first of our inter- ests, that of our glory. Soldiers, we march to drive from our cottntry those Princes who are auxiliaries of foreign- ; ers. The nation will not only second us with its wishes, Imt will even follow our impulse. The trench people and myself reckon upon you. We do not wish to meddle : with the affairs of foreign nations, but woe to him who | would meddle with ours." Meanwhile, Lord Fitzroy Somerset, and the other foreign Ministers, remained at Paris on the i 24th. In the following Bulletin issued by Go- i vernment, want of passports is assigned as the ! cause, but this is not satisfactory. His Lordship I was apprised of Bonaparte's approach, and had | full time to retire, and, in fact, no interruption was experienced up to Monday night. BULLETIN. " Foreign- Office, Downing- street, Saturday Night. Colonel Jenkinson arrived this evening with dispatches from Lord Fizroy Somerset, dated at Paris on the 22d instant. Lord Fitzroy Somerset and his Suite, with the Spanish, Swedish, and Russian Embassies, were, at the above date, detained in Paris, being unable to procure passports for post- horses, j Bonaparte entered Paris at half- past eight on Mon- ; i day night, in the most private manner. His suite occu- ; j pied three carriages, each drawn by six horSes. At ten j next morning he shewed himself from the window in the i Thuilleries. About noon be viewed the troops on the Place Carousal. " Marshal Ney joined Bonaparte at Lons le Saulnier. | His Proclamation, dated from that place on the 11th of March, describes the Bourbons as unfit to reign, and re- commends his troops to join the great Napoleon! " Caulincourt had been dispatched to Germany to in- , Vite the Archduchess Maria Louisa to Paris. Caulincourt quitted the capital on this miss; on on Tuesday evening. " His Most Christian Majesty had arrived at Lisle. Marshals Berthier and Macdonald remained with him. Monsieur and Marshal Marmont were marching with a large force towards Lisle." The latter part of the Bulletin states that the King was attempting to rally a force around him at Lisle ; but private letters arrived this day as- | pert, that Bonaparte had reached Lisle on Satur- 1 day with an army of 27,000 men,— that the garri ' son declared for him— the King had arrived at \ Ostend, and the Duke of Orleans at Tdurnay, ' | unaccompanied by a single soldier.— The Crown ' ; jewels, it is added, had been carried away from j ' France by the King's friends, which circumstance j had much prejudiced the interest of the King in . the public feeling. It is stated in a private letter, that the French " armies are at this moment unprepared to take * the field ; but that they Will be in Belgium very ' early in the next month. It is even said that 1 Deputies have arrived at Paris from Belgium, in- f viting him to come quickly and deliver them from the English and Dutch. Other accounts | state, that Bonaparte had written to the Sovereign of the Netherlands, requesting he would with- draw himself and friends from his territory, as by 10th of April he meant to be there in person to criminal and impotent delirium, all the Sovereigns of Europe, animated by the same sentiments, and guided by the same principles, declare, that if, contrary to all calculations, there should result from this event any real danger, they will be ready to give the King of France and to the French nation, or to any other Government that shall be attacked, as soon as they shall be called upon, all the assistance requisite to restore pub- lic tranquillity, and to make a common cause against all those who should undertake to com- promise it. " The present Declaration, inserted in the Register of the Congress, assembled at Vienna on the 13th March, 1815, shall be made public. ; " Done and attested by the Plenipotentiaries of the High Powers who signed the Treaty of Paris. « Vienna, March 13, 1815." [ Here follows the signatures in the alphabetic order of the Courts— viz. Prince Metternich, Baron Wesenberg, for Austria ; Prince Talley- rand, Duke of Dalberg, Latour de Pin, Count Alexis and Noaille, for France; the Duke of Wellington, Lords Clancarty, Cathcart, Stewart, for Great Britain ; Count Pamella, Saldonha Lobs, for Portugal; Prince Hardenberg, Baron Humboldt, for Prussia; Counts Rasumowsky, Stackelberg, Nesselrode, for Russia ; P. Gomez Labrador, for Spain ; Baron Laemenhelm, for Sweden.] In consequence of this Declaration, the Allied 1 Sovereigns have lost not a moment to put forth ' their strength. Austria not only stands HI the head of the common compact for bringing Bona- parte to punishment, but has already ordered 80 battalions of infantry, 110 squadrons of cavalry, and a numerous train of artillery, to proceed by : forced marches to the Lower Rhine; and Blucher ; and Wrede are again in the field. The Duke of Wellington was expected at Brussels to assume the command of the united army in the Nether- lands, to which will be joined a Russian force of forty thousand men. 100,000 Prussians are pro- ceeding by forced marches to the Rhine: the Elector of Hesse Cassel puts in motion 20,000 of his best troops for the same destination ; and 30,000 Swedes, it is said, are to come to Belgium, ITALY. We have no intelligence from Italy, other than is contained in the last Brussels Papers; which merely state that Italy remains tranquil, and that the Ministers of the King of Naples had declared to the Congress, that there was no foundation whatever for the news that the King had an un- derstanding with Bonaparte. It is very remarkable, that at the Lord Mayor's dinner, on Monday last, not one of his Majesty's Ministers were present— an instance of disrespect to his Lordship and the city of London unparal- leled.— It will be remembered that the city of London petitioned against the Corn- Bill, and also take possession. The whole military force of Bonaparte is esti- mated at 400,000 men. forcements. A flotilla is assembling on the Scheldt. Thirty battalions of infantry and chas- seurs, and 10 squadrons of cavalry, with 10 bat- teries of artillery, are to assemble between Venlo and Maestricht, and to co- operate with the troops under the command of the Prince of Orange. Orders have been issued for arresting all persons who maybe suspected of acting as agents or par- tisans of the system of tyranny re- established in France. The Lord Wellington Packet, which arrived last evening at NeWhaven, from Dieppe, has brought intelligence that all the French ports are now shut, except Dieppe and Morlaix. The force which Bonaparte has Sent to Lisle, to await the attack of the Royalists, is said to have been under rated at 27,000 men, and that it actually amounts to 40,000. It is also stated that Austria, Bavaria, and Wirtemberg, are far from entertain- ing a violent spirit of hostility against Bonaparte; This statement, however, probably derives its colour from French feeling and expectation, and may have been encouraged by Bonaparte to in- spire confidence in his Government. At the same time it will be observed, that BaVaria is not a party to the Declaration of the Allies at Vienna against him. One hundred and fifty thousand stand of arms have been ordered to be sent to Belgium. Work- men have been actively employed at the Tower for the last week, in packing them up. WILLIAM JOHNSTONE SURGEON, from DUMFRIES- SHIRE RESPECTFULLY BEGS LEAVE INTIMATE TO the Inhabitants of KIRKBRIDE ( Cumberland) , 1 t » Vicinity, that he is about to commence SURGERY and MIDWIFERY that Place; and from his experience in the above branches, he hopes to merits share of the public favour.

NETHERLANDS- All the private letters from the Netherlands concur in one statement— the enthusiasm of the military for Bonaparte ; and united opinion, that on the appearance ot the Imperial colours, all the fortresses will be surrendered without firing a shot. — It is, indeed, reported from Dunkirk, that several fortresses had revolted, and that emissaries had entered others- The troops at Valenciennes mutinied, and hoisted the Imperial Eagle. But it is not only the military— the inhabitants of some parts of Belgium are stated to be not unfavourably disposed toward Napoleon. French language and manners prevail throughout Bel- gium ; and the long connection with France has rendered them partial to her dominion. G ER M A NY. In the Brussels Papers to the 26th is the fol- lowing most important " DECLARATION, " The Powers who have signed the Treaty of Paris assembled at the Congress at Vienna, be- ing informed of the escape of Napoleon Bona- parte, and of his entrance into France with an armed force, owe it to their own dignity, and the interest of social order, to make a solemn decla- ration of the sentiments which this event has ex- cited in them. " By thus breaking the Convention which has established him in the Island of Elba, Bonaparte" destroys the only legal title on which his existence depended— by appearing again in France with projects of confusion and disorder, he has de- prived himself of the protection of the law, and has manifested to the Universe, that there can be neither peace nor truee with him. " The Powers consequently declare, that Na- poleon Bonaparte has placed himself without the pale of civii and social relations, and that as an enemy and disturber of the tranquillity of the world, he has rendered himself liable to public vengeance. " They declare at the same time, that firmly resolved to maintain entire the Treaty of Paris, of May 30, 1814-, and the dispositions sanctioned i by that Treaty, and those which they have ? e- ! solved on, or shall hereafter resolve 011, to com- i plete and to consolidate it, they will employ all their means, and will unite all their efforts ; thus the general pease, the object of the wishes of Europe, and the constant purpose of their labours, may not be again troubled, and to guarantee against every attempt which shall threaten to re- plunge the world into the disorders and miseries of revolution. " And although entirely persuaded that all France, rallying round its legitimate Sovereign, will immediately annihilate this last attempt of a We arc informed that it is determined by Go- vernment to order a new levy of infantry to the amount of 20,000 men, the measure to be sub- mitted to Parliament immediately after the recess. Some officers of rank are stated to be consider- ed to have proved deficient in the performance of their duty, in the late affair at New Orleans, to such a degree as to Call for the investigation by Court Martial. The deficiency alluded to is said to be the cause of the loss of the lives of Generals Packenham, Gibbs, and Kean, who felt themselveS under the necessity of putting them- selves forward to rally the men. The typhus fever still continueS at Cambridge, three or four more sudden deaths having lately- occurred in Jesus college, and some other of the societies. It is stated as a positive fact, that Ministers intend immediately to revive the Property Tax. A female servant in a tradesman's house in London lately attempted to poison the whole fa- mily by putting a large quantity of arsenic in a pye, of which the whole, consisting of seven per. sons, partook. There are hopes of their recovery. ANECDOTE— The following anecdote, which, we believe, is not generally known, will shew how sincerely Ney was attached to the interests of Bonaparte. It will be recollected that Ney was one of those sent by Napoleon to the allied Sovereigns at Paris as his Plenipotentiaries. Find- ing some difficulty in obtaining the te,- ms which he demanded, he expressed himself with so much energy, that the Emperor of Russia observed, " you defend Napoleon very warmly."— Sire," replied the Marshal, " my sword is still left to defend him better."— Alexander having the 1 pointed out Marmont's conduct, us worthy of imitatiou, Ney added, " I trust your Majesty does not confound me with men who betray their Prince and country." We lament to state, that Mr. Whitbread is ex- tremely unwell; aud has been prevented in con- sequence from attending the Sessions at Bedford, of which he is chairman. From a return to the House of Commons, it appears that our advances to Spain subsequent to the 1st January, 1811, amounted to i, 80S, 75t dollars. A COMET The Brussels Papers inform us that Mr. Olbers, of Bremen, has discovered a new Comet, which advances slowly towards the north- east, approaching the constellation of Per- seus : it is very small. A Bill, for the more effectual prevention of the use of false weights and n ensures, is passing through tire Legislature, by which Justices of the Peace, or a majority of the inhabitants of any pa- rish, are to appoint examiners, who may enter into shops in search of false weights and measures, and seize the same. Persons not producing their mea- sures, or in any way obstructing the examiners, are lo be liable to a penalty. Friday, Messrs.

In the midst of these greetings eternal disgrace of Frenchmen be it said), in the ' midst of enthusiastic acclamations, did he re- en- ter the capital, and seat himself in the Palace of ' Kings." 1 We return to the Paris Papers.— The first act of the new government was to make the follow- 1 ing appointments:— Minister of " Justice— CAMBACERES. Minister of Finance-— Duke of GA£ I T. Secretary of State— Duke of BASANO ( MARET ). Minister of Marine and Colonies— Duke DECRES. Minister of Police— Duke of OTRANTO ( FOUCHE). Minisiter of the Imperial Treasury— Count MOLLIEN. Minister at War — Prime D'ECKMUUL ( DAVOUST). Principal Inspector General of Gendarmerie— Dukc De RovigO. Prefect of Police— Mons Rial. Minister of interior— Carnot. Minister for Foreign Affairs— CAULINCOURT. In appointing Carnot to be Minister of the In^ tenor, Napoleon gives promise of a popular Go- j vernment; since it is not likely that so zealous a ; patriot would, 011 any other persuasion, partici- ] pate in the administration. Carnot. it will be re-; membered, opposed the tyrannical measures of| Bonaparte with nn openness and intrepidity that! justify the character which he affects to have ! formed on the Roman model; and not till France ! was invaded by the armies of the five great Ei n-; pean monarchies would he accept from the Em- | peror any situation o honour or trust. His con-! duct during the reign of Louis was consonant to ' his former public spirit. He remonstrated against i ihe fatal infringement of the charter; and con- j tinced every one that needed conviction how | much amiss the advisers of the King rated the 1 feelings of the French. It may therefore, be in-' Erred from his present appointment that a ma-; teriat melioration is meditated in the government. ! — The most prominent article in the Muni- te. irs is a long official repect of the journey of. ' Bonaparte from Elba to Paris, and his entrance ' • into that capital. It is described as a mere j ' tint of p easure, the return of a beloved and long per- manently established Sovereign from a visit to a distant part of his kingdom. Several Marshals joined him at Lyons, Massena's Aides- de- Camp there waited upon him, by that traitor's order, to receive instructions. Ney joined him at Auxerre, and has since arrived at Paris. The other trai- tors, Excelmans and the two Generals Lallemand, arrested near Laon, are also in Paris, and in high favour. King Joseph is also arrived there, and t c press Maria Louisa, with her son, the King of Rome is expected about the 4th of next FRIDAY' S POST. LONDON— MARCH 29. A Dutch Mail arrived this morning, and brought accounts from Brussels and Holland I to the 26th inst They are full of the prepara- tions for immediate active war. Accounts from | Emmerick of the ' 20th state, that all the Prussians i in that neighbourhood crossed the Rhine the day before, and were proceeding by forced marches to Creveldt. The Hanoverian troops are conveyed to the frontiers in waggons. There will in a few days be 150,000 men on the line from Treves to Nieuport. Letters received by the Dutch mail state, that the most energetic measures have been adopted in Holland and Belgium to counteract the influ- ence which the recent events in France might have in those countries.

YorK BRIDGE.— The disputes on this subject are terminated; ' the Magistrates of the three Ridings having come to an agreement with the ' city of York, thAt £ 3.0,000 should he advanced out of the county rates, for finishing the present bridge over the Ouse, with ' this special proviso, that it should be wisely and carefully expended. On Monday Se'nnight a dreadful riot took place at Sunderland amongst the keelmen and coal- casters, on account of the new waggon way and staith of Nesham main colliery, which, by bringing the coals down to the ships & little above the iron bridge, they conceive deprives them of their employment.

On Thursday week, at the D ' inside; behind the West Walls, aged 33, Mr. John Hornsby, millwright and me- chanist. How often does it happen that genius is cropped in the bud ! Of an acute, comprehensive, arid discrimi- nating mind,— his ardour for mechanical pursuits was on- ly equalled by his eminence in his profession. To his genius and application the public are considerably! indebt- ed for various useful improvements in mechanics; and When we consider that so much of our national prosperity as a mercantile country depends upon our superiority in machinery; Mr. Hornsby's death may be considered a general loss.— Of late the deceased had begun to apply himself to abstruse mathematical studies with greater in tensity than before ; and the continued discoveries which he made in the different branches of mechanical science warrant the expectation, that had his life Been happily spared, his name in time might have been enrolled with those whose discoveries and improvements Have transmit- ted them to posterity.— As to his private worth, it is fondly cherished in the memory of his relations and friends.

However just the remarks may be of H. his lan- guage is so exceedingly virulent, that they would injure the cause he advocates. *.* The subject of W. G touches the same string as the first- mentioned Correspondent; bUt is mere declamation. Tut question Of Peace or War is no longer doubtful. Great Britain has committed herself in an awful and tre- mendous contest, along with the other Powers, who 12 months ago forced Napoleon to abdicate a throne which he has again ( we had almost said miraculously) ascended' Under the proper head may be observed a Declaration of the Eight Powers assembled at the Congress of Vienna, ' denouncing Bonaparte, declaring him to be a perjdn with whom neither peace nor truce can be made, and menacing his existence. Their reason is assigned to be his breaking the Treaty of Fontainbleau by invading France.— To carry their design into execution all the Allied. Pbwcrs are making the most strenuous exertions; nor; we suppose, will ttie new Emperor of France, who arrived in his capital ill triumph on th'c 20th lilt, delay preparihg to resist the torrent which is about to roll upon him. It cannot be doubted that his troops will fight with the utmost desperation. Added to the natural hate they will feel toward their invaders, tbe tranquillity of twcWe months will have given them a keener appetite for war ; and, like the famished tiger, they will return to the leant ; of blood with more insatiate rajte. THE die is indeed cast; but before wc had taken a de- part in this desperate game, wherein we are sure ( as heretofore) to pay all the stakes, whether we win or lose,— it were devoutly to be wished our Ministers had paused ere tbey took part in a war, the object of Which is tlot to assist the Frcnch people to restore tbe Bourbons, but to compel the whole French people to accept such a King as the Allies think fit to dictate. It is now put beyond the possibility of a doubt, that Bonaparte is the choice of the Frcnch nation; and whatever maybe ( FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) SIR— The people at large having been inter- fered with in the article of eating,— a certain loyal corporation in my neighhdurhood, viz. the worshipful the Mayor and Aldermen of ,:: not 100 miles frdm the city of Carlisle; deemed it lately expedient, in their corporate capacity; not only to ape their betters, but to improve Upon ' the measure. They therefore determined to pre- vent the mobility from thinking,— possibly taking the hint from a certain wise corporation of old ( that of Gotham, if I mistake not), from whom! some of them are, peradventure, lineal descend- i ants, that— People who never thought would surely never grumble; Though for lack of belly timber their bowels oft should | tumble. f Accordingly it being understood by their wisdom- ships that a meeting was to be held to present a loyal congratulatory address to the Prince Re- gent ( God bless him!) that the swarms of Yan- kee Wasps and Hornets which had of late infested j us had been swept into the Red Sea— and hoping j that he would keep peace and good order, atid prevent his loving subjects from going to a cer- tain boxing- match in the neighbourhood, to Ihe depravation of good morale, and loss of business i — and such like topics ;— this worshipful body, I say, conceiving such a meeting scandalous and abominable, if not rank treason against their pre- rogative, since it presumed to exercise the right of thinking about what it should petition for With- out their supreme licence and authority,— pro- ceeded thither in great force. In this formidable phalanx were to be observed Mr Mayor, Mr. Town Clerk, , and a whole posse of constables, beadles, and dinner- retainers. Amongst the lat- ter I observed some who looked very much like reverends ; and on hinting my surprize to a friend, that men wearing the sacred garb should kick against an Address which savoured so much of what forms a component part of the Christian re- ligion, viz.—" Peace on Earth— Good- will among men"— I immediately abandoned my uncharitable suspicions, on my friend eking out a string of very significant old saws. Well, Sir, these lovers of loyalty, as well as good cheer, having got the requisite intelligence From their scouts ; ( possibly being pot valiant for ought I know), courageously stormed the apart- ment— by the magic of their mace and sword put the garrison to flight; and, like good and peace- able citizens, seized upon the projected peaceful and unoffending petition ( with sundry Skins of parchment), which they carried off in triumph, and safely lodged prisoners in that arcanum of mysteries, their strong box; I have heard, though I will not vouch for the truth of it, that it is interfiled with this wondrous petition to cover a drum ; the beating of which, when the fumes of Bacchus shall have too far SCOTS BANKRUPTS .

IN the event of the Allies re- stating Louis upon his un- steady and by no means enviable elevation amongst so un- principled a race as 3re the French, it would be absolutely necessary to protect him upon it by an immense foreign army. Would not such a force, distributed through the kingdom, keep alive the sense of degradation, and give rise to endless insurrections and bloodshed ? Bonaparte, indeed, may be hurled off the stage of life ; but, we re- jieat it, the real Bonaparte docs not so much consist in one identicHl individual, as in that system which indignantly tramjiles upon the feelings and the natural riglittcf a peo- ple.— Upon this subject we refer to ah excellent article tiv a Correspondent, in last page.

On Saturday last, a gentleman's servant was summoned before the Police Court, Edinburgh, on a Charge of having propagated a report that a house in Jamaica- street was haunted by a ghost, and thereby preventing the house from being let, to the damage of the proprietors, & C-. Upon being called to plead to this heinous offence, the defender positively averred that he had seen the ghost on two several occasions ; that, he had con- Versed with' it ; that it was of a copper colour/ dressed in a red night cap ; 4 but what the conve- sation was he refused to reveal— He was ordereds to find security to keep the peace for a year To the EDITor of the CARLISLE JOURNAL. It is confidently asserted that, a considerable time ago, a Frenchman from Elba offered to pu the British Ministers in possession of all the plan of Bonaparte to escape, in consideratiion of a cer- tain sum of money ; but ' this was ' declined, under the idea that this was a scheme to obtain money by working upon the credulity of the nation,. PHILOSOPHICAL INTELLIGENCE. Perpetual Motion.— Signor Zamboni has pre- sented to the Royal Society an instrument of his own construction, being an attempt to exhibit a I perpetual motion; It consists of two of M. de LOc's electrical columns or galvanic piles, placed perpendicularly at the distance of about six inches, vigour every attempt upon our independence or our Allies. This much, I think, every one will allow to he requisite: but whilst we prepare strennously to defend our own rights and independene, how is it that we are to be ( it seems) placed foremost in the ranks of those who would, by forcing upon the throne of France a Prince of the Bourbon family, in opposition to tlx ( now) known will ot the people,— deprive a nation of that greatest of rights— tbe right of regulating, without molestation, its internal policy ? The advocates for war contend, that we and our Allies are, by the Treaty of Paris, fully justified in warring against France until she throws off Bonaparte ; which last circumstance they aver to be necessary to the safety of Europe. They say more— that they are bound and have no option— bound to assist the people of France ( or the French nation) to protect the Bourbon dynasty on the throne— and to enforce the abdication of Napoleon. But let us consider coolly to- whom and to what they - are bound:— undoubtedly to the NATION AT LARge through the chief Magistrate, the King,— and to assist the people ( if required by them is of course implied) to protect the reigning family from deposition, and the peace of Europe from being overturned. And had Bonaparte In- vaded France at the head of foreigners, or been invited by a few desperate and disaffected men, and the people and government had required tbe performance of the stipula- tionn of tbe treaty ; their hostile entrance into France would not only have been justifiable but absolutely neces- sarv, and they would then have been really bound. But bv recent events it must be evident to every un- prejudiced person, that the bulk of the French nation is with Napoleon, and that he is unanimously called to the throne, not with indecent rashness and in the heat of the moment, but with cool deliberation and in a peaceable manner. This therefore alters the features of the case— and in this view of the subject I think that it will strike every one, that the stipulations of the treaty of Paris, so far as they regard the Bourbon dynasty, can not be fulfil- led— that the Allies and England cannot insist the people of France to restore the Bourbons, as in fact such offers of assistance will be a declaration of war. A fair trial has been made in France of the respective merits of the two competitors, and the recent circum- stances plainly shew which of them Is judged most fit to rule, by the only persons who have any thing to sav to the matter— the French people.— Any interference therefore .' on our part, or that of the Continental powers, is a viola- tion of the sacred and established rights of nations, and though such violations are by no means uncommon in these days of refinement, they are not therefore less, cri- minal and dishonourable. As to the nonsense which is talked about delivering the French from the iron oppression of Napoleon, and giving them the mild and good Louis, for their king,— this doc- trine is evidently akin to, and springs from, the same source as the system of forcing happiness down the throats of the unhappy Norwegians, and is equally absurd in short, it seems to me, that the wisest policy which this country can pursue will be, to stand aloof from the con- test:— she is in a very unfit condition to engage in a fresh war As to any danger of her independence, strong as she is in situation and natural means of defence, but stronger in the courage and devotion of her sons, she may safely defy not only France but Bonaparte,— not only Bonaparte, but even all Europe leagued against her ' This, however, may be averted by a peaceable line of policy; and I trust that all sensible men will strongly de- precate the renewal of hostilities, except 0n the most mature deliberation, and pressing necessity. Crosby, March 27, 1815. A. P. Now here a thought may safest itself ; why not grow this trifling quantity, and so be entirely independent of importation ? The proper solu- tion of this question, I am persuaded, it would not be easy to find a mechanic who throws the shuttle or handles the awl unable to give; but, it may possibly have honestly imposed itself on the understanding of a chance remunerating booby, I shall just stop to examine it, especially as it can be satisfactorily disposed Of in a few words. To produce the increased growth, what our modern scientific Agriculturists call a stimulus must be given to agriculture. It is worth stop- ping by the way to notice the learned terms which these gentlemen employ— stimulus and ratio are two of the favourites: and by the manner in which they use them, particularly the latter, we are enabled, I suppose, to form a pretty correct no tion of the matter and method of an agricultural society speech. Well, then, to produce an increased growth of wheat, an increased encouragement must be given to grow it. But, as the encouragement cannot continue exactly proportioned to the want, it must sometimes either fall short or exceed. If it fall short we import the deficiency; if it exceed, the market is overstocked, the prices fall, and the growth is discouraged; — thus the very encou- ragement counteracting its intention. But we shall have further occasion to observe the effect of these injudicious interferences. In pretence of avoiding the trifling importation noticed above, the whole system of agriculture is to be deranged : but mark the big evils that await on the innovation. The forced— the artificial encouragement to agriculture may be expected to operate in the manner in which a similar encouragement ope- rated from 1688 to 1765. By the way it is wor- ing I cannot be called presumptuous. I certainly think differently from A. B. and thrrefore if either of us be vise, the other- must be foolish ; and that the folly is mine, and ihe wisdom is his, we have his own authority for be- i lieving: for my part I am. no judge in my own cause. I | have not my Letter to refer to, but if I stated any thing to subject me to a charge of falsehood, I am very sorry , for it. Certainly I had no right to fix upon A. B. any character but that which he himself avows, viz. of a clean shaver, unless I add to my feeling a very dry one. I am content to pass for what he has proclaimed me, a drunken distiller, and I neither arrogate the character of a gentle- man to myself, nor charge it upon him. Unworthy, then, ol instruction, I must remain in error, and continue to- be- lieve that if Britain be required to raise its own grain, the price, for reasons given, must he Very high ; and I appeal to A. B. professionally, whether, if he shave. 40 customers a day at a penny each, yet if the money could do no more than pay for his soap, towels, razors, and whetstones, he would not abandon such a trade and leave his customers to be shaved by Frenchmen, even though he had his shop rent- free ; and indeed, for anything I know, his customers might be no worse off. I beg par- don for this flight, having been told that comparisons and | figures of speech are dangerous things in the hands of . some people, a position with the truth of which no one ; who reads the works of A. B. can fail of being fully im- pressed. Had I been favoured with the same advantages of education with which A. B. has been blessed, I might have seen the absurdity of arguing on the subsistence of a nation from that of an individual. I was misled by the old adage, many littles make a mickle." And consider- ing a nation in no other light than a number of individu- als, I thought I could not illustrate my position better ; and as Professor Malthus has done the same before me, I thought myself pretty secure from falling into any great absurdity here. But it seems education has taught A. B. better things ; it has" given him also an unlimited command over some very extraordinary figures of speech— bloom- ing virgins, stinking carrion, laxative pill's; quack doctors, and the bloody flux, dance among his periods in the most beautiful mazes of metaphorical confusion; and, was I disposed to continue the correspondence in like style, abundantly supply me with ' materials. I have only to take his letter paragraph by paragraph, and apply to each a figure of his own rhetoric to make him the same sort of an answer as that with which he has favoured me. But, Sir, this would not be supporting the character of gentlemen, it would be doing credit neither to your co- lumns nor our own understandings, whatever they may be. I shall therefore retire trom this unprofitable discussion, leaving the field and the triumph to my adversary. I heartily wish him happiness aud Success iu his profession ; and hoping the remotest interest of his customers and their country may continually be brought before them by acts of volition," I humbly take my leave, change my name and residence, and promise never to disturb the lu- cubrations of A- B- more.— I will not, however, take my leave of you, Sir, without disclosing to you what perhaps you have not dsscovered— that I am not a very bigotted remunerator : for, believe me, Sir, you do not resent, more than I regret, the measures now pursuing in Parliament; and had I influence I would use it as freely as you would do, in putting a stop to the agitation of this unhappy ques- tion : for though I cannot help believing, that importation from abroad, and agriculture at home, cannot flourish to- j gether, and that serious scarcities must ensue on the fail- ure of either, yet I consider these distant evils as nothing I in comparison with that certain one of creating a deadly 1 animosity between two classes of Britons, who ought ever • to be united in the strictest bonds ot interest and affection : I the moment the question came to be one of interest be- | . tween land and trade that moment it ought to have been | abandoned. If the consequences we apprehend ever should ensue, they would be met as in 1800 by the i common exertion of all mutually aiding each other, and ! then perhaps all miglit cordially agree in adopting the i measures most likely to aVert a recurrence of tiie evil. I thank you Sir for your attention to what I offered be- fore, and now for the last time subscribe- myself Ballinabog, March 10, 1815. BARLEYCORN. PREPARATIONS FOR WAR. The most active preparations are making by Government to meet the exigence of the pre'sent crisis, in case of our being again involved in war with Bonaparte.— All the vessels of war possible have been ordered to commission, and a hot- press, it is supposed, will. take place in the different ports of the Kingdom. It is said that orders have been issued to every regt. of the line in England to prepare for active service. The following are the regiments embarked, or under orders:— DRAGOONS— 2D, 5th, 7th, 10th; 11th, 16th, 18th. Lt. Do— 7th, 14th. RifLeMeN— 2d batt. 95th. GUARDS— 1000. Line— 11th, 16th, 23d, 28th, 51st, 52d, 55th, 7lst, 79th, 1st batt. 81st. Besides 20 batt. from Canada, and 5 from Nova Scotia. It is said that the militia is to be immediately called out. Large quantities of cannon and warlike stores are shipping for Ostend. Orders have been issued to the different depots and armouries for the selection of all the disposea- ble arms, for immediate embarkation to the Con- tinent. Seventy thousand stand, with the requi- si e accoutrements, are, it is said, to be sent in : the first instance, if they can be procured. The Government forges, are in the utmost activity; and we understand that extensive contracts are about to be entered into with private manufac- turers, in order to furnish, as promptly as possible, the means of opening the campaign with vigour and effect. At Woolwich aud Chatham the great- est bustle prevails in every department. At the former depot an immense quantity of arms, am- munition, and ordnance stores of every descrip- tion, is in the course of embarkation for foreign , ts service. Among the articles are tea thousand tents. BONAPARTE'S ESCAPE. The escape of Bonaparte from ' Elba must ne- cessarily become matter of serious and strict en- quiry, as many injurious statements are abroad, the refutation of which is indispensible to- the cha- racter of parties concerned, and particularly of the British Government— It has been stated as a fact, that before the departure of the Duke of Wellington for Vienna, a representation was made by the French Government, through his Grace, to the British Cabinet, intimating certain suspi- cious circumstances in Bonaparte's conduct, and requiring a squadron of British frigates as a fur- ther safeguard against his escape, and to prevent the execution of any dangerous designs that he might have in contemplation. To this request an answer was given in the negative, on the ground ' that the French Government had ships of its own, ' and that it was unreasonable to place the expence on the British nation under such circumstances. Another and much stronger idea, very preva- - lent on the Continent, according to accounts from ' other quarters, is, that the English were purposely deficient in vigilance, or even favoured his escape, in the view of renewing the war, and regaining the exclusive commerce enjoyed by this country during the recent contest. To the EDITOR of the CArLISLE JOURNAL. and each glass tube is surmounted with a brass bat!', between these pillars a steel needle is placed to move on an axis ;— the longed arm of this nee- dle touches the upper end or ball of each pile, and receives from it a sufficient repellant force to drive it to the adjacent ball, and vice versa : in this manner the motion is continued.— No appa- ratus to measure time has, however, been con- nected with this simple motion, which is protect- ed from the atmosphere by a glass frame. One of these piles at Brussels consists of disks of the diameter of a guinea, which are inclosed with pressure in two glass tubes of the form of columns. The substance of the disks is gilt paper, sprinkled with native oxide of manganese; a vertical needle, half a foot long, is suspended about the sixth of its length towards the bottom, and oscillates be- tween the two columns, striking at each half oscil- lation two bells with which the columns are sur- mounted. This movement, which is not much different in point of rapidity from the pendulum of a clock of the same length, has now existed for seven months, and is a true perpetual motion, aris- ing from a physical impulse. Projected Visit to the North Pole Lately, a paper, by Mr. Scoresby, of Whitby, was. read at a meeting of the Wernerian Natural History So- ciety, Edinburgh, on the subject of polar ice, and the difficulties encountered by the whalers in then- annual visits to those northern regions Mr. Sco- resby's frequent visits to that part of the globe have induced him to turn his attention to the pos- sibility of reaching the pole by means of an ex- cursion over the ice, and a considerable portion of his paper was devoted to this very interesting subject. It appears, from his accounts, that the whalers have sometimes penetrated so high as 81| degrees, or within about 600 miles of the pole, which space he considers might be travelled in sledges, by means of rein- deer or dogs, in about a fortnight, and that for the return, allowing for casualties, and time for observations, the whole might be accomplished in six weeks. From his knowledge of the climate, he thinks the tempera- ture of the weather will present no very great ob- stacle, having ascertained, that after a very long continuance of north wind the thermometer never was very considerably depressed. The difficul- ties he contemplates are, open water, rough or mountainous ice or similar land, soft snow, and dense mists As it is supposed that the first will not be Very extensive, he proposes to have his trainaux formed in the shape of canoes, so that they might pass over any thing of the kind, while the dogs might be made to swim, and for other obstacles, he must in a great measure trust to chance, supplying himself with whatever may be necessary to overcome them, should they occur. In shaping his course to the pole, he must soon lose the assistance of the magnetic needie, and must trust to solar observations, Which, together with a good chronometer, would answer every purpose, could he be sure of not meeting with, mists. He likewise proposes to assist himself in misty weather by making his cavalcade move at some distance apart in a straight line, which once properly directed may, with attention, be got to proceed with tolerable accuracy. From his ex- perience of the atmosphere of high northern lati- tudes, however, he does not anticipate such wea- ther, except with southerly winds, which are not of frequent, occurrence or long continuance. It is very satisfactory to observe a subject of this, kind treated with so much ardour, and at the same time with so much science, as Mr. Scoresby has done. It is an object which has long been very much desired by men of science, to ascertain the i nature and form of the globe at the pole, and the manner in which the needle is acted upon in pro- ceeding towards it. This, however, is not an ob- ject that can be taken' up b'y an individual, and if, after explaining his views to men of science, his plan may be pronounced practicable, we hope that government will second his intentions, and provide for the expenses of such an arduous un- dertaking. cation and habits of life should have above 6uch a degradation, and who had the ho- nourable means of maintaining himself with cre- dit; should have been induced by the thirst of money, and the wish to grow rich by ways more rapid than those of patient industry to plunder the public revenue, and to involve individuals in poverty and ruin; by a long series, of ingenious contrivances you managed to imitate the stamps used in the conveyance of property and other curities, from which one of the great supports of the public revenue; and, by affixing these stamps on other deeds and securities, you -. only grossly defrauded the revenue, but put the property of individuals to hazard, and that to :: great extent."

A TABLE- Exhibiting at one view the disproportion between, the advance in the price of labour and the rise which has taken place in the price of corn . with its consequent progressive pauperism' from the Revolution of 1688 to the year 1812 MISCELLANEOUS NEWS: On the 22d inst. the corn Mill received the royal assent, almost immediately after the presen- tation of the city . address and petition to the Prince Regent requesting its refusal There was a considerable riot at Leicester 011 Monday, caused by the Corn Bill, which was- at length quelled by the military. Both Houses of Parliament have adjourned for the recess. . The most Sensible man that has occupied the civic chair for some years past is the present Lord Mayor, Alderman Birch; yet this- man, after defending the cause of Ministers for' year* past, and supporting the spirit of loyalty, in his command of the 1st regt. of London Volunteers; is vilified by those whom he so long supported the first moment he differed with them, namely, on the Corn Bill. Certain contemptuous ex- pressions used by' Mr. Vansittart, in the Com- mons, when speaking of the above Magistrate and, the citizens of London, are . the topic of ge- neral disapprobation. • . Last week, at a clothing factory, at Frome, five persons weie killed, and two severely wound- ed, by the bursting of the steam engine boiler. ' Amongst the personages of distinction arrived in this country, in consequence of the change of . affairs in France, are the Princess of Poniatowsky, the Duchessess of Castres and Orleans, and the Duke de Feltre ( Gen. Clarke). This latter was presented to the Prince Regent on Friday It is said that Talleyrand also is coming to this country to make arrangements.— We shall see whether Ministers be simple enough to place confidence in this old fox. The remunerators have tried so much to alarm John Bull, and to shock his prejudices with the try ot his being beholden to the French for bread, that it is worth examining how much wheat we imported from all the world from the year 1765 to 1812, both inclusive, a period of 48 years, which it is needless to observe includes the late war, the waste and destruction of which was never equalled ; and which was such a war, and conducted on such a scale, as we feel cannot be again. During those 48 years we imported 15,979,198 quarters, and exported 4,338,974, leaving a balance of 11,640,224 quarters imported. Now, taking the low calculation of quarters ' being the produce of an acre, this quantity of wheat would require for its growth, annually, 70,000 acres of land. But if 20 years of the most eventful that ever occurred in the tide of human affairs be deducted that is from 1793 to 1812, both inclusive, we find that in the remaining 28 we imported 3,894,343 quar- ters, and exported 3,264,427 quarters, leaving a balance of 629,910 quarters, which, on the above calculation, would require 6400 acres of land, annually, for its growth. Thus it appears that the' balance of 28 years before the late war was so minute, thatit could not possibly produce any inconvenience,; and I think that no- man can be so besotted as to dream that all the wisdom of all the agricultural societies in the kingdom, con- joined with that of the board of agriculture, was- able to penetrate so far into the secrets of fu- tu rity as to provide with less inconvenience for the wants of the other 20 years. shortly, explain them. In my answer, last week, to S. S. I omitted to notice an assertion of his of considerable conse- quencce He asserts, " that the French may be supplied by us with cottons, 20 per cent, or pro- bably more, below what they co-. t them manu- facturing/ It can hardly be supposed that S. S. would make this assertion on light grounds ; but it is so much at variance with what has been cir- culated as the result of the actual observations of an eminent manufacturer- and exporter, of Glas- gow, that it is much to wished S. S. would favour the public with the evidence on which he has founded so decisive an opinion. Carlisle, March 29, 1815. A. B. To the EDITOR of the CARLISLE JOURNAL. SIR,— I am much obliged to A B. for having fulfilled his promise of giving me a clean shave. I highly admire his professional dexterity, though 1 feel a little disappointed iu the quality of his razor; for having been promised his second best, and that after a week's whetting, I had raised my expectations very high, and was not prepared for any deficiency either in polish, edge, or temper. As I wrote not for victory, but instruction, I expected from this master in tbe science of political economy to have had explained to me one of two things, either that importation might at all times be safely relied upon for a due supply of grain; or that there would still remain under the cir- cumstances of a free trade sufficient encouragement to the cultivator to prevent his capital from- being diverted into other channels, and the home supply thereby dimin- ished. I modestly, I hope, stated the light in which the subject struck me— and expected, if i was wrong, to have iny error pointed out with condescension and kindness— but it seems civility is not good for remunerators, and 1 am therefore only told, that I am a tipsy distiller, a fellow of profound ignorance, whose mind is not in a state to have any thing rational offered to it— and this, with a fre- quent mouihiug and repetition of my long name, is all the notice 1 am honoured with, except, indeed, a curious in- sinuation about the cursory observations which, if I under- stand the classical allusion to Castor and Pollux rightly, is, ( hough not flattering, rather amusing to me— I assure you I had no baud in tlrat work, which I have scarcely even read— and certainly never noticcd the express on, of which I hazarded a solution, any where but in A.

YORKSHIRE LENT ASSIZES— Closed on Wed- nesday the 22d March, when sentence of DEATH was passed upon 14 persons; all of whom were reprieved before the Judge departed for Lancas- ter, with the exception of Mr. Joseph Blackburn, an attorney in Leeds, for forging his Majesty's, stamps, who has been left for execution,-— and Mr. Roberts, a bankrupt, for defrauding his cre- ditors, but who was respited until the 13th of May Mr. Wainewright, the partner of Mr. Blackburn, who had been indicted along with him for cutting off the stamps from old deeds, and af- fixing them to new, was acquitted. The trial of the unfortunate Mr. Blackburn excited a considerable degree of interest. On being put to the bar he was dressed in a suit of mourning, and had his hair powdered, looked ex- tremely pale, and considerably thinner than when he was first committed. There was in his ap- pearance a- solemnity and deep- rooted sorrow, which powerfully excited the feelings of every person in . Court, and the most pro. uid silence was produced when he appeared at the bar— On being found guilty, the prisoner seemed very deeply affected. Mr. Justice Le Blanc, in passing sentence upon the prisoners, said—" The offences of which many of you have been convicted must have been con- templated in your minds a considerable time be- fore they were committed, and were not the re- sult of a sudden impulse.— Means, and ingenious means, were used to effect your purposes; and, I am sorry to remark, that owe of you, whose edu- ' An Evening Paper says—"; Accounts from • Cambridge of the ravages of the typhus fever are of an alarming nature this morning.

Then followed a scarcity, the farmer being deterred from growing ; thus, alternately, an over- supply producing want, and want producing an over- supply, during the whole period. Numerous temporary expedients were tried, but ail failed; at length, after- an ex- perience of 77 years, in 1765 the landed interest, being fully convinced of the mischievous folly of attempting artificially to advance the rents of the lands ; the bounty on exportation was repealed, and the ports thrown open for importation, duty free. And so strong was the impression remain- ing so late even as 1791, that in a report' of a j Committee of Privy Council, in that year, it is observed, " that the condition of the country la- bourer certainly requires that the price of corn should be low, that he may be enabled by his wages to purchase what is necessary for his sub- sistence as soon as the price of wheat passes 48s. The legislature have thought it their duty to at- tend to the necessities of the poor, and to encou- rage the importation of foreign wheat by allow- ing it at very low duties." But since 1791 rents having been trebled, our remunerators, to keep up the pernicious advance, have resorted to a measure, which, we have too much reason to dread, will be far more mischie- vous, both to the farmer and the public, than that of 1688 ; because we. have not, at our prices, much hope in relief from exportation. And - the ridiculous notion of relief by substituting, wheat for barley in the distillery will surely never come twice across any person's brain. Distressing fluc- tuations of price may be expected. If we suppose a bounty 0n exportation equal to the cost of the transit, say 20s. per quarter ( and that will be a grievous tax), then I think that we may expect 1 the prices to fluctuate between, ordinarily, 30s. and 120s.; but the maximum price will be liable to be affected extraordinarily, by unfavourable seasons. And these prices will be liable to be further affected by the state of our currency. My reasons for fixing 011 the maximum price are sufficiently obvious ; but those for fixing 011 the minimum are not so obvious, neither can I, very
