On the publication of Mrs. V/ hitaker's cure, her parents were induced to give your medicine a trial, which, happily for the girl, has had the desired effect; for by taking about seven small battle's, the wounds all healed up in a very surprising manner, her countenance again begins to wear the appearance of renovated health.

The Country Gentleman's Lawyer and Farmer's Li- brary, by William Marriott, Esq. price 4s, _ We have received Frengh papers to the 30th inst up to which date Bonaparte remained at Paris — The army sent forward to Lille was ex- pected to reach that city on the 24th : this army amounts to 40,000 men, and the regular troops which remain at Paris are estimated at between and 25,000 men. They were reviewed on the 25th by Bonaparte; who addressed them on the occasion in flattering terms, and took occasion at the same time to boast the good disposition of several strong towns, and of the people on the side of Belgium, the complete failure of any movements in Poitou aud La Vendee against his authority, and the re- establishment of his power, without the shedding of a single drop of blood in all France. The King is designated by his old emigrant title, the Count de Lille. He is stated to have withdrawn from Lille to Menin, a town in the Netherlands, near Courtray, occupied by the British thirty- third regiment of infantry. It is known, however, that his Majesty is at Ostend. The Duke of Orleans, De Berri, Count Artois, withdrew by Tournay ; the Duke of Bourbon has embarked at Nantes, and the Duchess of Angou- leme at Bourdeaux. Her husband appears to be the only member of the Royal Family for whose personal safety there seems any cause, of appre- hension. On the first notice of Bonaparte's ad- vance, he was sent to organize a force iu his rear, at Nismes, in the south- east of France, and we now learn that troops have been sent to surround him. In this dispersed and reduced state of the Royal Family, we are not surprised to Learn fur- ther defections from their cause. Mortier is among the Marshals who have declared for Bona- parte. Augereau, against whom he denounced vengeance, has obtained leave to retire to his ' estate in the country There are several stric- tures in the Paris Papers censuring the conduct of the King, intended, of Course, as a palliation for the perfidy of the nation. The partition of Saxony, and the assumption of the title of King of the Netherlands by the Prince of Orange, are also mentioned in terms of disapprobation ; but there is no indication of any intention to renew mencement of war, and that considerable bodies of troops had been sent forward towards Belgium, to reinforce the British army ' in that country. The occurences in France have produced a strong sensation at Hamburgh, and the exchange on London, in the short interval of a fortnight, had fallen 17 per cent, Coffee, sugar, and all manufactured goods, had in the like proportion advanced. " . BELGIUM. A Morning Paper says, " We have seen pri- vate letters from Antwerp to the 24- th insl. from which we learn that, even there a spirit had been manifested very hostile to the Government of the House of Orange. No less than six officers were shot there on the 17th. Trade was entirely at a ITALY. The Dutch and Flanders Papers again assert, that Marat is fixed in his hostility to Bonaparte; but his declarations, upon which this opinion is founded, are all prior to Bonaparte's entrance in- to Paris, and at a time when the success of his enterprise was uncertain. Letters received. yesterday from Leghorn state the conduct of the King of Naples to be very en- igmatical with regard to Bonaparte. SPAIN. The King of Spain has ordered two armies o 80,000 each to be assembled in Catalonia ant ImportAnT.— The Lords Justices have order- \ ed the Police Magistrates to report the state of the Metropolis every twenty- four hours-.—( Dublin Evening Post " Colonel Sir Niel Campbell " arrived in town- on Saturday night from Elba. He is preparing pa- pers for his justification. LORD COCHrane."— Mr. Jones, the Marshal of the King's Bench, went down to Kingston, on Tuesday, for the purpose of preferring a Bill of Indictment against Lord Cochrane, for breaking prison. The punishment tor this offence, if the person charged be found guilty, provided that person, shall be convicted of a misdemeanor, ex- tends to transportation for seven years, but may be commuted at the discretion of the Court.— The Grand Jury found a true bill. His Lordship is removed from his miserable place of confinement in the strong room in the i King's Bench prison to an apartment over the The Mar- MILLINERY & DREss MAKING.

We have received American Papers to the 13th of March. The President's Message, on laying the treaty of Peace with England before Con- gress states, we fear with too much truth, that the war has demonstrated the efficiency of . the powers of defence, and that manufactures have sprung into existence, and attained an un- paralleled maturity throughout the United States during the period of the European wars. The President also takes especial care to state that this war, the result of which has proved so bene- ficial, was reluctantly declared By Congress. Our readers therefore will not be surprised to find that he recommends the country to be well prepared in the event of a renewal of it. This was the lan- guage of the American President, at a time when he considered Bonaparte politically dead Con gress had separated on the 3d of March, not to suspend their proceedings during the usual re- Cess, but to resume them, we believe, in tiie month of May— General Jackson had advanced from the lines near New Orleans, and had marched hostilities, the internal arrangements of the new Government being . represented as the ' business which' occupies the attention of the Emperor. Among these is a Decree, abolishing the censor- ship of the public press, and leaving it, as in Eng- land, free from previous restriction. By the following article it will be perceived, that Bonaparte has utterly abolished the Slave Trade, so far as relates to France:— IMPERIAL DECREE. Napoleon. Emperor of the French. We have decreed, And do decree as follows :— Article 1.- From the date of the publication of thc pre- sent decree, tlie trade in negroes is abolished. No . expe- dition shall be allowed for this commerce-, neither iu thc ports of France, nor in those of our colonies. 2. There shall not be introduced, to be sold in our co. lonies, any negro the produce of this trade, whether French or foreign. 3. Any infraction of this decree shall be punished with the confiscation of the ship and cargo, which shall be pro nounccd by our courts and tribunals. 4. However, the ship- owners who, before the publica- tion of the present decree shall have fitted out expeditions for the trade, may sell the product in our colonies, 5. Our Ministers are charged with the execution of the present decree. ( Signed) NAPOLEON, By the Emperor, the Minister Secretary of State, ( Signed) The Duke of BASSANO. But what is most important in these Papers is Bonaparte's pacific professions. On the 26th he received the Addresses of his Council of State, of the Court of Cassation, of the Court of Ac- *" counts, the Imperial Court of Paris, and the Mu- nicipal Council of Paris. The first of these is the expression of thc sentiments of his own Ministry; the others echo the same sentiments, and are only rendered curious by the contrast which they af- ford to the Addresses lately presented to King Louis by the same Bodies. In the Address of his Ministers, the following passages are impor- tant:— Your Majesty will forget that we have been the masters of the nations that surround us. Your Majesty has prescribed to your Ministers the path they should follow— you have announced to the nation the maxims by which you desire it should be governed in future. We are to have no foreign war, unless it be to repulse aggres- tion.' Bonaparte, in his answer, which is given in an official shape in the Moniteur, re- echoes these sentiments: he says they are his owa. In his. answer to the summary of the deliberations of the Council of State of the 25th, he says,—" 1 have renounced the idea of the Great. Empire, of which I had been for. 15 years laying thc foundation. Henceforth the happiness and consolidation of the'French Empire shall be the subject of all'my thoughts." The Gazette de France adds, that his Majesty has declared to the Ministers of the Foreign Powers, that it was his intention to faithfully ob- serve the treaty of Paris and hoped that the Powers on their side wiiuld scrupulously observe the conditions of it; and that they could not meddle in the internal affairs of France. According to the accounts contained in the French Papers, the Duke of Bourbon has failed' in his attempts to excite a popular party in La Vendee, and he has entered into compromise by Which he and his followers agree to leave France. with ten thousand men upon Mobile. ' The two Houses of Legislature concurred with the President as to the fitness of employing only natives and naturalized seamen on board Ameri- can ships; but the business was deferred « n ne- urit of the arrangements necessary to be con sidered before the intention should be carried into effect. The standing force is to consist of 6,000 men. The navy, it is determined, shall be pro- gressively augmented. On the 3d ult. at eleven at night, it was resolved that hostilities should be commenced against the Dey of Algiers. parte to escape from Elba were fully known to a part of his Majesty's Government, in sufficient time to have been prevented. The Journal to which we allude pledges itself that this circum- stance will shortly appear before Parliament, Lord Hill left town on Wednesday night for Belgium. He is the bearer of the commission to the Duke Of Wellington, appointing him Com mander- in- Chief of his Majesty's forces on the Continent of Europe. The following Bulletin was on Sunday exhi- bited at St. James's Palace: — WINDSor CASTLe, April 1.— His Majesty has passed the last month in an uniform state of tranquillity, but his Majesty's disorder continues unaltered." It is understood that there is a division in the Cabinet, Lords Liverpool and Sidmouth being adverse to the renewal of the war with France Mr. Sylvester, the Messenger, has been several days under orders for the Continent. He will carry away the determination of the Cabinet upon this momentous question. Amongst other ridiculous stories brought from Paris,— it is stated that, since his return, Bona- parte has had a coat made of silk of such a tex- ture as to be ball- proof,— and that he intends to make the people of France change their religion, and adopt the tenets and forms of the Uni- tarians ! !! A faux pas has recently occurred in high life, which promises to furnish some employment to the gentlemen of the long robe. A gallant Ge- neral, who has more than once bled in the service of his country, was a few days since discovered by a Right Hon. Commoner in such a situation in his wife's dressing- room, as left him no room to doubt that a criminal intercourse had taken place between the parties. The lady has quit- ted her husband's house, and is at present under the protection of her friends.

TO lit SOLD IN PUBLIC SALE, On Tuesday; the 18. h Day of April, 1815, and the two following Days, in Mr. Tyson's long Room, the George Inn, PENRITH, GERMAN Y, Ifc. The German papers abound with accounts of warlike preparations— of Austrians, Russians; and Prussians, marching their thousands and tens of thousands against France. An unsuccessful attempt has been made by a party of Frenchmen to carry off the King of Rome, in consequence of' which he has been re- moved, with his mother, the Empress Maria Louisa, from Schoenbrunn to the Imperial Palace in Vienna. Did Bonaparte entertain any hopes of a reconciliation with the Emperor of Austria, ho would not have had recourse to this extraor- dinary attempt. Letters from Bremen speak of the most active . preparations throughout Hanover for tne recom- In the House of Commons, on Monday, Mr. Vansittart stated, in reply to some questions from Mk Whitbread, that he had not yet made up his mind whether he should again propose the Pro- perty Tax; and that the British Ministers at Vienna had no authority to sign any paper which sanctioned assassination; but that at present Ministers would neither avow nor disavow the Declaration of the Allies. " It is understood," says a Morning Paper, " that a dispatch was received by Ministers en Sunday last from Bonaparte; signed by Fouche, Duke of Otranto, in which is said that the Em- peror of the French expresses his wish to receive an amicable proposition from this country, to which he will pay the most ready attention— and, according to rumour, he further expresses, that though his own sentiments would be to abide by the terms which he offered to the Allies at Chatil- lon, yet it is the opinion of his Ministers, that to preserve the peace of Europe, he ought to ba content with the bodnds assigned to the French Empire by the Treaty of Paris, and to this opinion he is himself disposed to accede."— Other ac- counts state, that dispatches had been sent over by Bonaparte, but had been refused to be receiv- ed at the part; and that Commissioners are to be dispatched by the British Government to ascertain the state of the popular feeling in France before any actual war took place. Lord Combermere, it is said, is to take the Command of the cavalry in Belgium. ATTEMPT TO STEAL THE CrOWN— A singular and most daring attempt to steal the Crown at the Jewel Office, in the Tower, was made on Fri day afternoon about two o'clock,' by a woman meanly dressed, who, under pretext of viewing the Regalia, gained admittance, and made a sei- sure of the diadem, by thursting her arm through the iron bars, which are placed for security ; the attempt was, however, rendered futile, by the Crown being much too large to admit of being forced through them, and though much bruised by the violence of the grasp, yet fortunately none of the jewels were unset. The female appointed to exhibit the Regalia, fainted, an alarm was in- stantly given, the woman secured, and conveyed from the Tower in a hackney- coach to'the Police Office. Private letters from Bengal state, that Earl Moira had commanded an army to take the field against the Napaul country; and that the 8th dra- goons, 14th, 53d, and 67th British regiments, un- der Major- General Wood, were employed on this occasion. A British officer Was at Lyons when Bonaparte arrived. On his road from that place, he met a regiment of cavalry with white colours and cock- ades, whose commanding officer stopped the stage- coach. and enquired about Bonaparte, saying he was on his march to seize him. At this time Bo- naparte's corps appeared in the distance. As soon as he saw a corps of cavalry drawn up, be quitted his carriage, mounted a led horse, and, attended by one aid- de- camp, rode up to the Co- lonel and ordered the regiment to break into co- lumn and follow him, which they did as if on a parade. ESSEX ASSIZES. THE KING V. BRIDGE—- This was an indict- ment for a libel, in sending a gallows to the town- hall, Colchester, with a view to bring the mayor i into contempt. It appears there have existed violent corporation squabbles at Colchester. Mr. Smithies, the last mayor but one, refused to give up the corporation regalia. On the 29th of Sep- tember, 1813, Mr. Sparling was elected mayor, and the corporation being met in due form in the town- hall, sent Mr. Sutton, their town clerk, and two. bailiffs, to Mr. Smithies, and Mr. Bridge, the last mayor, to demand the mace, & c. Mr. Bridge met them in the street, and told them he had left orders with his servants to give up all he had got. Mr. S. accordingly went to his house, and made the necessary demand; a servant girl, laughing, went and brought down the mace case, which was locked. This was carried to the Town- hall, where the mayor ordered the lock to be broken open, when lo ! to the great scandal of the mayor, but to the infinite merriment of the bye- standers, a neat little gibbet, with a halter and running noose affixed, was produced; for this the mayor caused Mr. Bridge to be indicted Mr. Sergeant Best grounded his defence chiefly, that the thing Was wrongly described in, the indictment; it was not a gibbet, but merely the representation of one; and holding it in his hand, asked, whether Mr. S. could possibly be hung on that gibbet; it would not suspend even the little town clerk. If they had no better gibbets in the county of Essex than that one, the malefactors would all go Scot free. — The learned judge told the jury, that he thought it ought to have been described as a resemblance of a gibbet; but as the indictment positively avow- ed it was a gibbet, they must find the defendant not guilty, unless they thought it was one,— Ver- dict— Not Guilty.

Brighton April 4 At 2 o'clock this day the Lord Wellington packet anchored in our Roads, and landed between 60 and 70 passengers, among whom was the Lieut.- General of Louis the XVIII. ; Bonaparte remained in Paris on Sunday, nor was it at all expected that he would speedily depart from the capital. The only report brought by the passengers worthy of notice is, that Havre was reported to be in a state of insurrection that the tri- coloured flag, as well as the white, were both waving ; and that disputes between the par- ties had risen to that pitch, that several had been killed. The principal part of those passengers arrived this day appear in distressed circumstan- ces. Every thing remains at Paris, as well as Dieppe, the same as for the last ten days; no em- bargo is expected to take place at that port; but it; is much spoken of as having taken place on this side. Account's received by the Lord Wellington packet, which arrived yesterday at Brighton, state that an insurrection has broken out at Havre, in which several persons were killed.

An engagement took place on Thursday last, at Montelimart, in the Depart- ment of the Drome, between the national guards WE are led to this belief on account of a serious schism in the Cabinet, respecting the policy of re- entering into war with the French Ruler. It is Undeniable that the French people | has made him the object of their choice ; and we apprehend that even the despotic sovereign of Prussia, and the Autocrat of all the Russias, have so far learned a lesson from experience, as to avoid putting the feelings of a whole nation upon the touchstone. Indeed, their own conduct, for Some months past, is the best commentary upon, and set oif to, the Bonapartean principles.— We wish not to be misunderstood ; the aggrandizing principles of Napoleon we always did, and we do now, utterly detest, arid we would utterly abomi- nate the same principles by whomsoever pursued; — whether by Napoleon himself, Or by those who [ though they openly disavow the connection) may be said to be,—- using a Vulgar expression;— " tarred with the same stisk." The inhabitants of Leeds have petitioned for the extension of mercy to Mr. Blackburn, found guilty of forging stamps at the last York Assizes; and Mrs. Blackburn has also gone to London for the same purpose The inhabitants of- Sheffield have petitioned the Prince Regent immediately to dissolve the Parliament. . ^ LIBERALITY.— On Thursday se'nnight, at a | meeting of tlie Common Council of Newcastle, j several rooms in the new hospital lately erected ; there were given away to such persons as were , - thought most deserving of relief.— Amongst the ' number of applicants for rooms was a freeman of the name of Bell, who had formerly been in good circumstances, but is now greatly reduced, and between 60 and 70 years of age. A room was given to him, and he had retired, full of gratitude, j to inform his old partner that she might now " lull her cares to rest," for he had now got , something to " shelter " them from the pitiless storm," during the winter of life.

The tele- graphic dispatch communicating this intelligence, adds, that the Duke of Angouleme, who also ar- rived at Montelimart on the 29th, made his es- cape. Another dispatch states, that the Marseil- lese fly in all directions, but that not a shot shall TELEGRAPHIC DISPATCHES. Telegraphic dispatches transmitted from Lyons this morning contain the following intelligence:— DISPATCH FROM THE PREFECT. All is perfectly tranquil here. An engagement took place the day before yesterday between the national guards of the department of the Drome, 600 in number, and a considerable assemblage of insurgents from the South, who were dispersed in an instant. The troops of the line which had been made to march with the rebels rallied to the eagles. The rebels are flying; the inhabitants of the depart ment of the' Drome are arming on all sides to pursue them. The Duke of Angouleme arrived on the 29th at Monte- limart. He has fled. DISPATCH FROM THE GENERAL COMMANDING THE Division. April 1—- Two o'Clock. All the troops of the line of the garrison of Marseilles, who had marched on Gap with the Marseilles volunteers, have joined Ihe National Guards, who marched to meet thecm. The soldiers and the Natibilal Guards embraced with cries of " Vive l'' Empereur !" Tlw in via of La Mute and Corps have; given tri- coloured standards to the 58th and 83d regiments. The Marseillois fly in all directions. There was not and there will not be a musket fired. it would appear that the Royalists, who have been dispersed at Montelimart, was a force for- med by the Duke D'Angouleme; and from a Decree of Bonaparte, dated the 13th, nt Lyons, we may farther presume that a strong feeling in favour of the Bourbons has, from the Beginning, manifested itself at Marseilles, it WaS, perhaps, * a knowledge of this disposition of the people, in that quarter, which induced Massena to send a a body of troops from Toulon to Aix, where it would restrain Marseilles ; when, had he been faithful to his King, he would have Sent them di- rect in pursuit of Bonaparte. The report of the arrival of the King of Frarice at Frankfort is contradicted. His Majesty, it would appear, remains at Ostend, for which place it is said Lord Fitzroy Somerset sailed on the 29th from Calais . The Spanish Ambassador has also sailed from Calais for the same destination. The Hanoverian troops that guard the frontier : line of the Netherlands, suffer all the French to Boudeaux there are 6,000 National Guards, and 4000 troops of the line, all of whom may be de- pended on, and have again sworn fidelity to Louis XVIII The Duke D'Angouleme is said to have a force in the South of France Of 60,000 men ; and the whole of that part of the country is sta- ted to be rightly inclined ; they want a supply of arms and ammunition. The British at BourdeaUx, As a measure of precaution, have embarked their property' on board of vessels in the River. A fleet was lying at the entrance of the Gironde, under the protection of two British frigates. Several Papers respecting the Slave Trade were presented yesterday in the House of Com- mons by Lord Castlereagh. The eight principal Powers of Europe, in Congress assembled, bave all agreed to the abolition, but differ as to the period when it is to take plaee. Talleyrand, on the part of France, professed himself anxious to shorten the period of five years fixed by the Treaty of Paris. Spain and Portugal, however, insisted upon eight years. All the rest agreed tc the immediate abolition. It has been also a greed, that Committees of the several Powers should sit at London and Paris, to report annu- ally on the state of the trade ; and that the colo- nial produce of any power refusing to consent to the total abolition within a reasonable time, should be excluded from the ports of the other Powers ; but against this latter arrangement the Portu- guese Minister entered a protest, reserving on the part of his Government a right to retaliate. A sugar island, Or a sum of money, had been of- fered to France, but rejected, for the total and immediate abolition; She, however, agreed to limit it. north of Cape Palmas ; and Portugal, for a release from the payment of £ 600,000 due by her to England) on account of the loan in 1809, agreed to abolish it northward of the Line To ascertain the precise limits to which the seve- ral Powers consent to limit it, north of the Line, was one of the objects proposed for the Commit- tees at London and Paris; This is all that Lord Castlereagh has been able to effect. His Lord- ship candidly confessed, in a Conference with the Emperor of Russia; that England in the Treaty of Paris had expended all her tangible ways and means, and that he had only arguments to offer in support of the cause. Considering then, that As to the celebrated declaration of the Allies, — the more it Is considered, the more ridicule it excites. They the preservers social order!— Where, in the name of wonder, have they made this grand discovery ? Some twenty years ago, we were inundated with waves of loyalty, under the specious pretext of drowning the spark of anarchy which the French Revolution had kin- dled ; but now ( oh! still more wonderful revo- lution !) we are called upon to pull down what we had been assiduously building for so long a time. We are called upon to pull down the des- potism of Bonaparte ; and every one who has a tolerable degree of common sense will see ths difference between anarchy and despotism. They are two extremes, to be sure; but, according to a very vulgar proverb—" between two stools, the but do not permit them to return The he was only a Suppliant and a suitor, we cannot wonder that he did not effect more. Had Bona- parte's Decree for the immediate abolition taken place a few months ago, it would have saved his Lordship an infinite deal of care and trouble. **** comes to the ground." IT has been said that Kings have short memo- ries ; but in their denunciations against Bona- parte, and in their zeal for the preservation of " social order," have they forgotten their pro- ceedings in Saxony and Italy ? In those coun- tries did their proceedings tend to the preserva- tion of " social order," by keeping alive those feelings and affections which always accompany a state of tranquillity,— or did they not, hv the most i arbitrary stretch of power, attempt to break iil' sunder those cords of natural affection.— of patri- ! otic attachment, which are the sure foundations j oj" peaceable government. Finland, Norway, and Poland, were they per- mitted, could give us some information respecting the observance of " social order;" but it seems, that right and justice are not what ihey were used to he reckoned,— inalienable; they are now trans- ferable ; and what is wrong in Napoleon is per- fectly right and justifiable in a Charles John, an Alexander, & c.— But the barbarity of the prin- ciple of the declaration is most indefensible. Bo- naparte i » thereby put out of the pale of nations and whoever accomplishes his murder will be deemed worthy of reward. An excellent exposi- tion of the " social" system; But do not the ad- vocutes for " social order" discern that this prin- ciple will tend to the utter disorganization cf all civilized society, i Bonaparte, like all other per- sons against whom a war of extermination is de- clared, would have but one thing to do in return, that is to say, to hang up the first Prince or either important person implicated who should fall into his hands. It is the only way to stop the bar- barity of such doctrines, and has always, in latter times at least, be'en successfully adopted. But Europe, we trust, is not destined to see this re- turn to the most savage and superstitious times. The lofty tower, and Caledonian gate. Which grac'd Carlisle; at length submits to fate!

Holywood, Ministers;— James Counel, Esq. of Con meath— Elder Amongst the first acts of Bonaparte; on his re- assumption of power, is his perfect and unquali- fied abolition of the Slave Trade. No doubt Napoleon will, by certain pretended loyalists, be abused for so precipitate a measure, which the whole allied Congress could not accomplish within j a specific number of years; but the person who makes use of his reason will cordially acknow- | ledge, that Bonaparte, by this act of government, has done more toward the cause 6f humanity and justice, than has been attempted by his opponents for 20 years past.— This summary abolition of that horrible traffic, combined with the spirit of his public speeches, also clearly indicates a greater desire of popularity than he ever before mani- • fested, and a wish to conciliate the republican party in France. His government will not, in short, we apprehend, be quite so absolute as be- fore, when his single voice regulated the policy of France, and who knows but the new influence set up may be friendly to peace. It is possible that the popular party in France may be at length convinced of the folly of wasting their population in useless wars, and that by this means the peace of Europe may be yet preserved'. took place, in which 30 of them are stated to have been assasinated, and several houses were pillaged. — An insurrection it is also said has broken out g( at Madrid, and the King has been obliged to fly. P Bonaparte, for the first time since his return to Paris, went out in his carriage on the 31st, and visited the school for the education of the female orphans of Members of the Legion of Honour, at a St. Denis. On the next day he visited the Bois de Boulogne. The rest of his time is occupied with public business. He does not appear to have any intention of quitting Paris. A review which was fixed for the 2d, is postponed to the 9th inst.

Two thousand rations have been ordered in the towns in the route of her Imperial Majesty. From these circumstances, it appears that Bonaparte has no idea of the detention of his wife and son. They also shew the extraordinary magnificence with which he means to mark their return. The French Funds were, on the 1st instant, 63 7- 10.

The TO the EDITOR of the CARLISLE JOURNAL. Since my last communication to your Journal, England has been involved in a war With the French nation. The die is cast; we must now either overturn Napoleon and enslave France, or we must ( in case of a- failure) be driven to the humiliating necessity of acknowledging as the legitimate Emperor of France the man whom we have, in concert with our allies, designated a rebel, excluded from the pale of civil and social re- lations. ail, those who have the love of their couhtry at heart and who wish to see England's name Un- stained by descending to sanction by her support, a measure unjustifiable by any necessity, and in- compatible with the principles of justice. In this hope I remain, Mr. Editor, Yours,. & c. Crosby, 4th April, 1815. A. P. ,, To the EDITOR of the CARLISLE JOURNAL; SIR— However excellent, in general, may be our translation of the Scriptures, it is not. hazard- ing too much to say, that in some places the sense has been misunderstood; and in others misrepre- sented or mutilated, where, by so doing, the pre- dilection of James I. for the royal prerogative could be flattered. By some of these misrepresen- To this extremity we have been most unwisely and inconsiderately reduced; The precipitation of the allies is inexcusable. Before it could be known at Vienna with what sensations the French people would receive their former ruler,— before any idea could be formed of the unanimity of the nation in his favour, and consequently of the re- sistance to be offered to any foreign interference on behalf of the Bourbon family,— a declaration of war, of interminable war, was issued under the signatures of the several powers, parties to the treaty of Paris, against the EmperOr and his ad- herents,— now ascertained to be the bulk of the people of France. This important document of the allies asserts, that Napoleon, by breaking the convention by which he was established in Elba, destroys the only legal title on which his existence depends : find that by entering France with projects of con- fusion and disorder he has- deprived himself of the protection of the law, and has therefore rendered himself liable to public vengeance. " Here are two bold bare- faced assertions. Let us consider them separately. The first declares that Napoleon's existence is forfeited by his quit- ting Elba, his continuance there for life being the only legal title he had to existence. From this we must conclude, either that he sti- pulated for this description of tenure, in hopes perhaps of keeping himself quiet; or that his life was, or his abdication, legally at the disposal of the allies, and granted to him by the convention of Paris, on the condition of the remainder of it being spent in the Island of Elba. The former of these conclusions we all know to be unfounded, and the latter I now contend to be equalty so. The allies had no power over Napoleon's life,— no more than over the life of the Saxon king { whose dominions indeed they have partitioned without scruple, but over whose life not the vilest of their supporters ever insinuated a power),. Bonaparte had been acknowledged legitimate Emperor of France by all Europe except Eng- land ; every power but her having concluded trea- ties of alliance with him, and even. England her- self having, in conjunction with the others, nego- ciated with him at Chatillon.. The only controul their great success gave them over him was the right of compelling a just peace, and of curtailing the enormous power of the French empire so as to secure the future tranquillity of Europe. And this was at one period all they thought necessary, all in effect they demanded. Their manifestoes never claimed any power over his person; and that the restoration of peace was all they could compel legally, they acknowledged by treating with him at Chatillon It was not until they had been joined by, and obtained the active co- operation of, the French people and the other component parts of the government ( though such co- operation was undoubtedly compulsory), that they could even become parties to any con- vention compelling his abdication,* much less by any such convention obtain to themselves exclu- sively any power over his existence. That abdi- cation was due to and compelled by the French nation alone. The nation alone of its own sole authority had power to compel it,— and conse- quently the nation aloner without the concurrence of the allies, has the power of revoking it, and if the French people wish for their old oppressor again, tiie allies are not thereby entitled to say, they will not have it so— all they can compel and enforce is peace. The rest it belongs to the French to judge of, and if they require the allies again to rescue them from Napoleon, the allies may. interfere, but not otherwise— the treaty of Paris being only binding on them in case of such requisition. It is from not distinctly understanding which of the several facts of that memorable treaty be- long to and affect each different party to it, that a great many contend for the advance of the al- lies-,- and approve of this document. If France was not with Bonaparte the whole of the stipula- tions of that treaty would be binding on the allies, both with regard to France and themselves;— but France having withdrawn and not requiring the performance of the stipulations regarding her, the allies have now only to perform those relating to the- security of each other, and to preserve the peace of Europe by mutual assistance. The other assertion is, that Napoleon has entered France with projects of confusion and disorder, and has therefore deprived himself of the protection of the law, and rendered himself liable to public vengeance. From this paragraph of the declaration one would suppose that Napoleon had avowed his intention of reconquering the continent and of carrying his victorious arms again over Europe. But what is the fact ? He has not even hinted at a renewal of the war, and has since his re- ele- vation declared that he has abandoned his scheme of a larger Empire than France, and will devote his attention wholly- to her in future. As to the confusion, created in France,— that, if there was any, is not at all within the cognizance ot the Allies, except their performance of the treaty of Paris' relating to France is required by the majo- rity; ol the inhabitants, which certainly will never be done. The allies. therefore, fail equally on this point as on the other; yet it is upon the strength of these two rotten assertions that Bonaparte is placed out of the pale of society— Upon them is he declared liable to public vengeance. Under these notable sentences his murder will not be a crime, but a duty. Can this enormity find de- fenders '— too many I am afraid ; yet 1 trust the principle will meet with unreserved and well-' merited reprobation from every good man,-— from tations many weak minds, I doubt not, have re- ceived a bias unfriendly to public freedom,— con- ceiving it' highly criminal, as being contrary to God's word, to thwart the proceedings or impugn the motives of the Legislative or Executive Go- vernment, under any circumstances.— Than this idea nothiug can be more unfounded— nothing more inconsistent with the genius of Christianity, which desires the interests and happiness of mankind both here and hereafter. Nor have wc the least reason to suppose that the dis- ciples and apostles of' our Lord ever dabbled in politics, or dictated to others the kind and degree of this species of faith : no; they were followers of him whose kingdom was not of this world. Amongst othet misstatements — In the 10th and 11th verses of the second chapter of Peter's 2d epistle, the translators have rendered the ori- ginal—" But chiefly them that, walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise go- They beheld with indignation the unhallowed at tempt to destroy liberty in the bud, and extirpate it from the soil. It has been saved by your firm- ness— it will flourish under your fostering protec tion— the number of your able correspondents, who have recently arisen to erudieate the cause of justice and- humanity, are a guarantee for its prosperity ; and the very attempts of your ene- mies to injure you will prove your safest security. In vain a Paper prostituted and warped to party purposes may raise its clamorous and envenomed sting :- the execration of the country will consign it to oblivion and contempt; and, like a former ; fulsome and unprincipled ephemera, it will be hug- ' ged to death in the stifling and jangling embraces of its contending foster- fathers. vernment; presumptuous are they, self- willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities: whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord/' Before giving my humble opinion upon this passage, as it now stands, wherein the divine right of kings appears implied; I shall premise, that throughout a great portion of the chapter the apostle has evident relation to certain anti- nomian brethren, who believed, that having once received the adoption of grace and obtained ad- mission into the fold of Christ, their salvation was eternally secured; so that whatever enormities they committed, it was not to be imputed to them as sin. If the reader will peruse the chapter, and especially from the 19th verse downward, lie will see this very clearly. The apostle, then, in the 10th verse above- men- tioned,— in warning the church against this per- nicious doctrine, designates those who adhere to it as despisers of government. Now the word government is here ambiguously used; as if it were intended to mean, the constituted authorities of the country. But the original, does not convey this meaning : it merely signifies govern- ment in the abstract, or domination, restraint, ' controul. The word ( rendered in our version those who despise) in its strict sense means, those who are of a contrary opinion ; there- fore, I think ( keeping the context in view),' means those who do not ac- knowledge any restraint or moral obligation. In like manner, and not losing sight of the con text,— the word translated dignities, signi- fying glories, excellencies, or whatever is worthy to be had in reverence,— I conceive to mean those emanations of the divinity— those rays of superior reason, contradistinguishing man from the brute creation by making him acquainted with, and inducing him to perform, his moral du- j ties, as a reasonable creature : whereas the anti nomians of whom Peter speaks, deeming them selves perfect in themselves, seem to have spurn- ed those excellencies of God, and thus to have reduced themselves to a level with the " natural brute beasts."— See verse 12. " Whereas angels," & c. ( verse 11) As if the apostle had said—" Whereas angels, whose nature is infinitely more exalted than that of the holiest of men, nevertheless properly appreciate those best gifts ot the Almighty to man ; nor do they disparage the obligations of virtue, the observance of which, in some degree, renders him the image of his creator." Iu case you approve of this, I may submit to you some further criticisms on the same subject, and endeavour to rectify some popular miscon- ceptions, which militate against sound freedom. Carlisle, April 5, 1815. . a fifth in England at this day. Indeed, we need not go so far back to prove, the increasing evil of this system ; we need only go to the period when the average rent of land in England Was about fifteen shillings an acre,, and... the taxes. equally low ;— and, computing it with the present rent of land and the excessive increase of taxation, we shall find that the farmer would not be able to pay rent and taxes, did he not obtain more produce from an acre of ground than he did twenty years ago, I mean in point of quantity : for where he formerly got twenty " bushels he now gets thirty, and this cannot be done without an increased ex- pence in the mode of agriculture; the conse- quence of which is that the tithe- owner gets three' bushels where twenty years ago he only got two. This increased revenue ( arising from the increas- ed industry of the husbandman), instead of crea- ting a spirit of benevolence and forbearance in the minds of those men whose lives and conver- sation ought to be the rule of conduct for . the rest of mankind, most lamentable to relate ! is made the instrument of still greater oppression against those very persons who have so largely contribu- ted to its increase, in endeavouring to create and obtain new dues. It is under these circumstances the farmer views with disgust, instead of venera- tion, so great a part of his produce taken away, and at the same time his land deprived of so large a portion of that forage so essentially necessary in the preparation for a future crop. It is admitted on ail sides, even by those who are the strongest advocates for Tithes, that they are an inviduous way through which a clergyman, who is a good man, derives his support; and to a bad man they give too great a latitude to become obnoxious to the farmer, and are too often the cause why those useful and respectable set of men affect to hold clergymen and their functions in so great con- tempt : this, no doubt, has a pernicious effect on the morals of the peasantry. Certainly, Mr. Editor, it is in the power of the legislature to provide a remedy for this monstrous evil, and it is certainly the duty, not only of the land- owners, but of the Whole community, to seek relief by every lawful means in their power. That the thing is practicable is sufficiently proved by many cases in this county, where the parishes have been freed from Tithes within the last forty years. As this seems to be the season of petitioning petition for the abolition of Tithes would, I have a doubt, obtain as many signatures as the one if the repeal of the - Income Tax ; and, if pro- erly persevered in, would, I hope,, be attended ith the same success. A desire to see this sub- let treated of by some of your more able corres- ondents has induced ltie to trouble you with these bservations. A FARMER. f Our Correspondent, we think, makes his estimation such too low.— It ought to be considered, that the far- mer not only pays the tithe of his LABOUR, how great soever that labour may . be, but he pays the tithe on his RENT also. Out of 100 acres of arable laud the tithe- owner, in reality, takes the whole produce of ten acres; and for these ten acres the farmer is obliged to pay the rent to his' landlord, as well as to pay all the expences j of the seed and labour necessary to procure a crop, and j the poor- rates and taxes attached thereto. From a 1 tenth part of his rent, therefore, the farmer derives no j enefit; and in taking a titheable farm he ought always ; o consider, that in every 100 acres. of. arable land he is j impelled to pay the rent of ten acres for the lithe- owner, j is weil as to plough and sow the land, and reap the crop j or him. The land- owner, then, would not hesitate to ; rive to. the tithe- owner one- tenth part of his arabie land, 1 n order to purchase an exemption frctri tithe! But the alter will by no means accede to such a proposal, as he 1 receives a crop from the tenth part of the land, which ; may be calculated to be worth three times the annual ! value of the ( and ; and therefore he receives three times as much from a tenth of the land, as he would receive if that tenth were his own. Heti'ce, if the tithe- awner is to have such a quantity of land in lieu. of tithes as will let for a rent equivalent to the produce of one- tenth of ths land,- he must have three- tenths, or nearly one- third of the land.—£ 0. J It is certainly in the power of the Legislature, not- withstanding what has been asserted to the contrary by those who would have us believe, that tithes were es- tablished^ Jure divino ! These gentlemen are very unfortu- nate in their allusions: some of. them, in defending their jute divino system, adduce the partition of land amongst " the Levites— forgetting that the Mosaic dispensation being abolished, every thing connected with its observance is likewise done a Way.— The fact is, that in the primi- I cannot but feel with you, Mr. Editor, the im- possibility ot uniting such a various multiplicity of jarring and discordant interests: disinterested- ness meet' no desert— on the petition against the famous Corn- Bill, not one in a publick capacity, or official stuation, came forward to patronise or support it; the merit was solely your Own, yet when you forwarded it to Mr. Baring to present to Parliament, a man who of all others, de- served the preference, when our own members sat mute,— with what uproar, what clamour, and unfeeling brutality, were you not attacked ? Yet the result proved your judicious selection ; our members were called upon their legs, and the Petition commanded the voice of our repre- sentatives. The right of petitioning is sacred and impre- scriptible, which a liberal government will gene- rously cherish, and the civil power will be wary in touching ; and how fur the magistrates are warranted in interfering between the Legislature and People is a question of delicacy, and one which I trust their prudence and discretion will pre- clude us the necessity of too closely examining. The part you have embraced, Sir, is such as be- comes the high and important duties of an inde- pendent Editor, whose cause is the cause of. man- kind, and whose well being is his country's pros- perity. ARMIN. To the EDITOR of the CARLISLE JOURNAL. MR, EDITOR— On perusing the Essay, " On the Rights," & c: fire, which appeared in the Car- lisle Journal of the 1st inst. the following obser- vations very forcibly suggested themselves. Should they be found worthy of notice, their insertion j would oblige a constant reader of your instruc- j tive and interesting miscellanys Ainstable, April, 5 1815. S. A. The disquisition with which you were last fa- voured by A. P. seems to savour more of partia- lity to the Usurper, than that of zeal in- advocating the cause of the people. He commences by saying— It becomes a " question of great importance what line of policy this country and the allied powers of the conti- ; nent ought to pursue;" that it is a question of the most momentous nature will, I presume, be denied by none. Notwithstanding the mist in which, at his outsetting, he discovers this ques- tion to be involved, it is speedily dissipated by | the powerful influence of his magic pen ; and he ; triumphantly arrives at the conclusion,— that ; Bonaparte is the legitimate Sovereign of France 1 jthe choice of the people ; and that any inter- i ference on the part of England and her allies is j an infringement of the common right of nations. ; As my sentiments on this subject differ from those ; of A. P- I shall take the liberty of examining his j opinions. Granting that a peace Should be concluded with Bonaparte ( the mode of procedure which A. P. recommends), what probable consequences may be expected from such a measure ? In or- der to form an answer with any degree of pre- cision, we must make ourselves acquainted with the distinguishing characteristics of Bonaparte. From the most cursory survey of the events of the last 25 years, it must be manifest to every the Bourbons— in fact the amiable, the gentle Louis is in no respect calculated to rule the French; that licentious and abandoned people must be ruled with a rod of iron. The mild dis- position of Louis might render him respected us a private gentleman, but it tends only to degrade the sovereign. A. P. says, had Bonaparte entered France at the head of foreigner?, or been, invited by a few " disaffected men, a hostile entrance into France would not only have been justifiable, but, absolutely necessary. But by recent events it must be evi- dent that the bulk of the French nation is with Bonaparte, and that he is unanimously called to the throne.' Had he said that Bonaparte called to the throne by the unanimous voice of the military, I should have found less difficulty in assenting to his proposition. The expression, however, appears to be round assertion, without the least shadow of truth or reason. That Bona- parte should be recalled by the French people is contrary to all experience, ancient or modern; Fickle as the French may be, they cannot have forgot the conscription ; the ravages which this and similar proceedings caused in domestic feli- city must be strongly impressed on their minds; He was not replaced on the throne by the people; but by the machinations and intrigues of a few- disaffected Marshals. The soldiers caught the infection of their leaders, and the people, struck with sudden astonishment, were unable to oppose them. Peculiar accidents favoured this circumstance. The soldiery, accustomed to blood and war for a long series of years, had contracted an affection for martial pursuits ; they were skilled in no arts by which they could earn a livelihood ; and they were cast upon the world to terminate a miserable existence in indolence and want. But oil will combine more easily with water than poverty and inactivity enter into the lively, fickle constitution of a Frenchman* To causes such as these we may trace that enthusiastic ardour with which the military hailed- the arrival of the tyrant. A. P. concludes with recommending a peace- able line of policy. In other circumstances I would have joined with A. P. in advocating the. cause of peace in the present I cannot. Having disa- • bled Bonaparte from effecting any future distur- bance in the political affairs of Europe, let the al- lies cease from further interference. Let France enjoy the acknowledged rights of nations, in cho- sing what monarch she pleases, and adopting that mode of Government which she thinks best cal- culated to promote her interests. ( FOR THE CARLISLE JOURNAL.) A. B.' s REPLY to JOHN BARLEYCORN's ANSWER. To Mr. John Barleycorn : SIR;— I am favoured with the perusal of your second letter at me. It seems you found my literary shaving rathe - too dry. It may be so; but the operation answered the intended purpose — it fairly stript off the covering of imposture. You of the Barleycorn family ! you have none of the blood of the worthy, and ever to be la mented, old baronet. Honest old Sir John was somewhat Hasty, it must be confessed ; but he never kept, rancour rankling in his veins. I certainly never did myself the honour of imagining that the intention of your first letter was to apply to me for instruction. It appeared * to me to have a two fold intention :— to defend the remunerators; and to make me odious to the farming interest by representing me as writing against it. Of your first intention I did not com- plain : to such of your arguments as seemed to have any novelty in them I opposed others. Yoifr accusation I indignantly repelled. I gave you some good advice, which, instead of being of use to you, appears to have kindled your resentment. Your second letter is almost as disingenuous as your first. But what, Sir, are your readers to think of you ? I charged y ou explicitly with accusing me false- ly ; you now, after such a lapse of time, come be' fore tiie public and say, " I have not my letter to refer to, but if I stated any thing to subject me to a charge of falsehood, I am sorry tor it." 1 Submit your excuse to the public without com- ment. To the EDITOR of the CARLISLE JOURNAL. I- Sir,— Amidst, tho numerous discussions which your correspondents have furnished to the public on the Corn- Laws, through the medium . of your valuable Paper, there is one article which, though materially affecting the Agriculture of the Coun- try, seetfis to have escaped their animadversions, I mean the article of Tithes;* and although they have been borne by the people in this country for a much longer period than the Income Tax, they are in many instances far more oppressive, both as they operate to lessen the industry of the hus- bandman, and on account of the vexatious means t « o often resorted to for their recovery by those who enjoy the benefit of them :— the latter is an evil which' the practice of every day proves to be increasing. We are indeed, to a Certain degree, indebted to the increased weight of taxes for the accumu- lation of the evils arising from the system of Tithes* When we contemplate the mode of Ag- riculture which existed at the period when those offerings, now denominated Tithes, had their be- ginning, and compare it with the expensive mode of Agriculture Which our climate renders abso- lutely necessary ; we shall find that a tenth, as it was paid in those countries where tithes are said to have- been first paid, will amount to more than • The exaction of Tithes is so absurd and tvrannical an attack on the property of mankind, that it is almost impossible for them to continue in any country in the world half a century longer. To pay a man a thousand a year for preaching by deputy is too gross an imposi- tion to he endured. To levy that thousand in the most pernicious manner that can wound prOperty and liberty, are circumstances congenial to the 10th century, but not to the 19th. Italy, France; and America, have set noble examples for the imitation of mankind ; and those coun- tries who do not follow them will soon be as inferior in cultivation as they are in policy.— ARTHUR YOUNG tive ages of Christianity, the pastors of religion were maintained from a common stock, and afterwards by their respective congregations. It was not until several centu- ries had elapsed, that the imposition of tithes was made, under one of the Popes; and was at length sanctioned in this country by the civil power.— Now it is evident that what is tolerated can be revoked, when the public interest requires it; as mu « ii as a succeeding Parliament can re- peal an Act of the preceding. Of this opinion is a very celebrated Writer on jurisprudence— ED. •• Tithes are not paid because the parson is entitled to them by the revealed law of Christianity, but because they are secured to him by the civil law of the state."— Dr. PLOWDEN. To the EDITOR of the CARLISLE JOURNAL. Mr. EDITOR,— The public has heard with as- tonishment the illiberal and base attempts to de- preciate your Paper in their esteem. Scarcely had it cast aside " the trammels of party and the fears of timidity, ere you were assailed by the panders of profligacy and the mercenary agents ! of corruption and despotism; but the voice of the people, who saw with pleasure and with pride an able advocate of their cause interpose between them and their oppressors, will not suffer you, Sir, to be wrongfully oppressed. The vile at- tempts to beat down every one who dares vttter his sentiments on subjects connected with the city, or investigate public measures with freedom, has been painfully and reluctantly felt and as- sented to. Amongst what description of beings do we live, that we must not think or speak but as suits their capricious and arbitrary inclination! Does the constitution of the country give that peculiar privilege to any particular class of men,* No ; it disclaims it. By what, authority, then, do a few individuals dictate to the city, and overawe a whole county ? None : It is our inertness, and not their right, which sinks us beneath men, and raises them to tyrants.- To be free, we have but to resist their machinations— they are buoyed up and exalted by our fears— they will vanish before our intrepidity and perseverance. The sense of the people, Mr. Editor, is unani- mous in your favour: your enemies are well aware that your Paper has increased in the public esti- mation in proportion to your exertions in their cause, and therefore are determined to destroy that fabric on which public' sentiment is founded. one that the most prominent features in Bona- parte's character are a profound judgment, the keenest penetration, a total disregard to every tie, religious or moral, boundless ambition, and an insa- tiable thirst for the blood of his fellow- mortals. With abilities and passions such as these, can it be supposed that he will rest in his present situa- tion > No; he will exert all his power and all his talents to regain his former influence on the political theatre of Europe. Had peace been concluded with Bonaparte, it is evident that he would have employed this in- terval in enriching his treasuries, Organizing his troops, and making every possible preparation for war Having brought these preparations to maturity, his next business, as has been uniformly his practice, would be to devise a pretence for making war upon his weaker neighbours; Spain, for instance, or the Netherlands, either of which countries would fall an easy prey to his ambitious projects. Would not his influence, by these means, be extended over a vast breadth of terri- tory ; and would he not, in the course of a few years, become as formidable to peace, commerce, and Europe, as he was in the meridian of his glory. These are sufficient motives for determining the British Government to adopt hostile measures to- wards Bonaparte; but these are not the only con- siderations— some attention surely ought to be paid to the faith of treaties, notwithstanding the contempt in which A. P. holds them. j Why are treaties made ? evidently for the mutual - security and protection of the contracting parties. But these things cannot be effected unless the faith of treaties be observed. It clearly follows then that the honour and interest of the contracting parties are involved in the faithful execution of the sti- pulated articles. Upon this principle every arti- cle in tlie treaty of Fontainbleau, which is con- sistent with, and necessary to, the honour and re- pose of Europe, ought to be performed; and the party that transgress any of these article^ should be punished according to the extent of the delin quency. England and her allies are consequently bound by all the laws of nations to expel Bona parte from the throne, and to bring him to con- dign punishment, The expulsion of Bonaparte, however, by no implies the restoration ol I am far from going to the length of saying that " civility is not good for remunerates ("' though I dont think them entitled to any extra- ordinary attentions. Their conduct, for soiree timo previous to the late contest, I beheld with' con- tempt and indignation. The former feeling would have been unmixed, had not the mischievous in- tention been obvious. The developement of the' plot has shewn how general was the sensation. And I have reason to think that the remunera- tors are astonished to find their overbearing in- solence repelled, and tiieir airs of wisdom and mysteriousness exposed to the contempt of the world by that PEOPLE whom they affect so much to despise; but which, in reality, whose commoa sense they fear. Your logic and your sneers do not tempt me to enlarge " the unprofitable discussion ;" your exposition of Malthas does not tempt me to con- tinue it. You protest against an examination paragraph by paragraph ; I will not again " stretch a butter- , fly on the wheel;" although the gaudy insect has plundered JuNIus' sparterre, and defiled his nec- tar with the steam of a dunghill. The conclusion of your letter shews that you have too much plain common sense for a remu- nerator ; and I should not be surprised if you were to make the discovery of the aweful respon- sibility with which the remunerators have loaded themselves.- Carlisle, April 5, 1815.
