Tuesday ni^ ht were received the Paris Papers • of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday last, and on Wednesday morning those of Sunday came to hand. The debates on the Budget closed on Thursday. The last struggle made by the Op- position was on the subject of mortgaging the tumid national forests, in aid of the Sinking Fund. — The Antagonists of Ministers contended that the resources thus undisposed of ought to go, to the support of the Clergy, and some ani- mated speeches Avere made on bolli sides of the question. The Minister of the Interior cahnly replied lo all Jjie arguments of the Opposition, try referring to what had been already done for • he Cicrgy, and finally carried his point. One Speaker " gave great offence to the majority of the Chamber, by describing Religion as an Emigrant, which had gone off and come back with Louis XVIII. The law imposing the duties of Customs and Excise on foreign commodities entering France, passed with only live opposing votes. The three principal articles which the French Mi- nisters wish to exclude by heavy importation duties are cottons, sugar, and iron. A feeble attempt was made by the opposition to lower the duties on what they denominated raw ma- terials. The French Legislature is expected to adjourn about the 20th instant. The Funds, have fallen about one per cent. Paris, March 9.— The present Session of the two Chambers will close about the 20th instant, and the Session for 1817 will be summoned to meet in October next. The printer of a pamphlet containing re- flections oil the King's Ordonnance respecting the Officers who followed his Majesty to Ghent, appeared before the Tribunal of Correctional Police yesterday. The King's Advocate spoke an hour and a half against him, demanded three months' imprisonment, and a fine of 1000 francs. After hearing the prisoner's Council in answer, the Court adjourned the decision until Thurs- day. The printer honourably refuses to give up the author. The French flag was displayed at Senegal, and the settlement taken possession of on the 2(> ih of January. The navigation of the Seine has been inter- rupted several days by a prodigious rising of the waters; they are at this moment higher than they have been the whole year. The piers of the arches of the Pont des Arts are scarcely visible. Count Ro-. topchin, formerly Governor of Moscow, is still in Paris. A recent Pat is Paper says, " The Civil Tribu- nal of Meaux has decided that ihe celebrated Fouche having been banished by the law of Jan. 12, 1815, and thereby deprived of his civil rights, cannot act as Ihe tutor or guardian of his own children. An appeal from this decision has been put in by M. Fouche, who is enormously rich." In the night between the 2d and third of March the mail from Valenciennes was attacked between Senlis and Pontarme, by several men armed with musketry. At the first fire the postillion was killed, and his horse wounded. The courier instantly rushed out of Ihe carri- age with his pistols, and mounting ihe horse which carried the Mail bags galloped off. He was fired at several times. On lodging the Mails at Pontarme, he returned with the Mayor and some country people and found the body of the unfortunate postillion, but none of the brigands. The Portuguese Ambassador at Ihe Court of Vienna has made a formal demand of the hand of flic Archduchess Leopoldine for the Prince of Brazil, which being assented to, the Prince and Archduchess were affianced by proxy on the l8th ult. The marriage by proxy is to take place in the course of next month. New York Papers to the 2d ult. have been received. The Bill for the enforcement of the neutrality of the United Stales ( to prevent the citizens from assisting the Spanish insurgents) has been engrossed, and ordered for a third read- ing in the House of Representatives. Accounts of a very disheartening nature to the Royalist cause have been received at Cadiz from Mexico by a house of the first commercial intercourse with Spanish America. These ad- vices, which reach to the end of August, slate, that Ihe audacity of the Insurgents daily in- creases, and that they frequently come down from the mountains into the plains, where they contend with the Royalists iu bloody and stre- nuous actions. On the 9th of August they had carried an important post occupied by 300 Spanish infantry, 100 of the Dragoons of Mexico, and defended with four pieces of cannon.— The new Viceroy had been compelled, by the situ- 1 jition of things, lo issue a Proclamation, in which he calls ou all those attached to Ihe Royal cause to take up arms.— In this Proclama- tion the following curious passage is found ;— " In a short time a fresh army will arrive from the mother Country, and we will then re- assume the offensive with vigour. In the meantime, I will confine myself I o defend the approaches to this vast capital against the desperate attempts of the rebels," & c. & c.— In reference to the same letters, it is added, that this Proclamation has rather tended to increase than diminish the existing alarms. DUTCH MAIL. | Brussels, March 8.— We have the following from the frontiers:— Though the energy of the French Government represses more and more the efforts of male volence, yet the enemies of order si ill shew, from time to time, liow ready they arc to seize every opportunity to agitate the public mind. Thus Ihey have distributed in several depart ments, at the same time, a printed paper, which states that Great Britain, in consequence of a Revolution, had been laid waste by fire and sword, and that the Duke of Wellington, with his whole army, was going to quit France to support the Royal cause. The credulous were, however, soon made easy, and it is hoped that the authors of the paper will be discovered, who are supposed to be inhabitants of the Capital. The Duke of Wellington, it seems, w ill remain at Paris till the fifth part of the Army of Occu- pation has entirely quitted France. Count Woronzow's journey to Paris is intended to make arrangements, if possible, for the embarkation of ihe 0,000 Russian troops at Dunkirk, instead of making them return home by land; but it appears there are some obstacles. March 5.— Within some days large cargoes of corn have arrived in the French ports, princi- pally from the Baltic, but a part from North America. This corn is sent partly to the Army of Occupation, and partly to Picardy, where the scarcity is the most severe, but above all to Paris, where the Government is collecting large quantities. Frankfort, March 2.— His Majesty the King of Bavaria has divided his kingdom into eight Circles, namely the Circle of the Isar, capital Munich ; Lower Danube, capital Passau ; the Regen, capital Ratisbon ; Upper Danube, capi- tal Augsburg : the Rezat, capital Arnberg; Up- per Maine, capital Baireuth ; Lower Maine, ca- pital Wurzburg : the Rhine, capital Spires. The Diet has now taken an important step ; a committee appointed at the beginning of the Sittings last year has made a long Report oji the order in which the affairs to be treated by ihe Diet shall be brought forward. They are to be as follows : — 1. The regulation of the military relations. 2. The relations of peace, or the foreign affairs of the German Confederation. 3. The organical establishment of the German Confederation in respect to its internal relations. All Germany has its eyes turned on the deli- berations on these subjects, as the result must principally, if not entirely, show how far the great expectations of the Nation will be fulfilled. TM P E RIA L PA RLI A MEAT. HOUSE OF COMMONS, MONDAY, MARCH 10, 181T. On the motion of Sir E. Knatchbull, the Game Pre- servation Bill Was read a second time and committed for Friday, LIBERTY OF THE st EJECT. Mr. Calcraft . said, he held a petition, which, though only signed by ail individual, contained a statement of great importance, as to the infringement of the liberty of the subject. The case arose out ofa supposed smug- gling transaction, which caused the sou and servant of' the petitioner to be taken by the Custom- house officers, and sent on board a man of war. This, lie ci Nothing but private accounts have as yet been received respecting our embassy to China. The contents of some letters from Canton, which have transpired since the first accounts were published, concur instating ( what by the bye was merely the rumour of the day at Canton) that the Embassy had failed through no other cause than a misunderstanding upon matters of Court etiquette. It seems, that when the Mandarins first announced the arrival of our Ambassador at Canton, the Emperor is said to have been grati- fied by the news, and to have immediately ap- pointed a day of festival on which to receive his Lordship; who promised ( as it is ascerted) that he would make no objection to conform to the ceremonies of the Chinese Court. As the time approached, however the Mandarins, having had farther communications with Lord Amherst, were compelled to assure their Sovereign that he had fallen sick. The Emperor, upon this, desired that the Englishman next in rank should be in- troduced to him. Unfortunately for the Chinese Ministers, they answered ( as we are informed) that the next Officer of the mission was sick also. His Imperial Majesty conceiving that some de- ception had been practised upon him, very naturally for an absolute Monarch, appears to have lost his temper. One letter, indeed, goes so far as to say, that he ordered some of the equivocating Mandarins to apologize for their insincerity by having their heads chopped off. Other statements make the Emperor profess, that if he had been candidly warned of the Ambas- sador's objection to comply with the usages of tile Court, he would have so arranged Ihe inter- view, as to get rid of the ceremonies exacted from other foreigners, and would have followed, iu the present instance, the example of his grand- father, who had favoured in the same manner, Lord Macartney, to manifest his special regard and esteem for the Representative of the British Nation. With respect to the affair between the Alceste ; uid the China forts, the details were authentic and precise. A letter detailing the particulars already before the Public, reached the India- house oil Friday last, from one of the Company's Supercargoes at Canton: in consequence of which letter the Chairman and Deputy Chair- man of the Court of Directors waited upon the Board of Control, to communicate all that had transpired on ihe subject. The quarrel is said to have originated in one between the General Hewitt and the war- boats. When that ship had landed the embassy, she proceeded up the river; but, from some irregularity, was stopped by the war- boats. After being for some time detained, the General Hewit began to weigh anchor, in order to remove ( without permission) to another birth. The Chinese Admiral begged of Capt. Campbell to wait, if it were only 24 hours, as it might be the means of saving the Admiral's head, which he did not seem to feel was a bit faster on his shoulders than that of another Mandarin. The Captain, it is sajd, complied with this re- quest ; if not to oblige the Chinese Admiral, at least to avoid the risk of raising any extra ob- stacles to impede the success ol the mission. Advices from Hanover state, that Ambassa- dors are in future to reside there; and that se- veral of the Potentates of Germany have already nominated their Ministers to that, effect. It is expected that their example will be followed by other States. Foreign Ministers will be re- ceived by the Duke of Cambridge, as Governor General of Hanover, to whom they will present their credentials.! Wednesday night, a little past eight o'clock, a beautiful Aurora Borealis, nearly resembling that which appeared in September last,. was distinctly visible for a considerable time at Edinburgh. ontended, was totally illegal. The father had been advised to make an affidavit, and move the Court of King's Bench for an Habeas Corpus, which was granted ; but by shift- ing these persons from vessel to vessel, be was precluded from getting any remedy which the law would have afforded him. He hoped the Chancellor of ihe Exche- quer would inquire into this subject, and that some- thing would be done to compensate the individual and those who bad suffered in their persons. They had been most harshly treated on board the ships of war, having been in irons five weeks, while one of the vessels was at anchor, and been subjected to very hard fare. He should now merely move that the petition be laid on the table, as it was his intentieu to take some subsequent steps upon it. The petition, which was from Charles Ellis, of Southaven, Dorsetshire, was then received, read, and ordered to lie on the table. Mr. Bennett said, he held in his hand a petition from certain Settlers in New South Wales. He had taken the trouble to ascertain, as far as possible, who they were, and had found that they were not convicts, but persons who were bona fide settlers. The petition com- plained of partiality in the administration of justice, and of unjust and oppressive conduct on the part of the Governor. He. knew nothing of the facts, anil could only take thenvon the authority of others; and when it was considered that the seat of coinplaiut was 9000 miles distant from this country, it would be seen that it was impossible for him to take any steps ou this petition in less than a year. The petition was then read short, and ordered to lie on the table. It concluded with praying, that the Colo, nists might no longer liaVe taxes levied without the con- sent of Parliament, and that they might be allowed the full benefit of trial by jury. COMMITTEE or SUPPLY.— ARMY ESTIMATES. On the motion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the House having resolved itself into a Committee of Supply, Lord Palmerston moved — " That a force, not exceeding 121,000 men, including the army in France, lS, it85 about to be disbanded, and 1S63 to lie transferred to India, be granted for the Military service of hisMajesty, to the 21th of June next. " That a further sum of 287,0001. for England, be grant- ed to defray the same, with the sum of IKS, 0001. for that portion of the force about to be disbanded. That a siiiu, uot exceeding 138,0001. be granted for the Military Force in Ireland, together with the sum of 16,0001. for the portion of the force to be disbanded in that country." Lord Pulmerston in adverting lo tha Yeomanry Esta sblishmeot, begged to remind the Committee that the original allowance to each individual in these corps was 41. per head. It was last year determined to reduce it to 21. but as such reduction embraced but. six months, the charge stood at 81. per man. The manner in which they hail conducted themselves had determined the Government to place them ill the fullest efficiency, for that purpose he would have to propose the allowance of 31. per man, with the further sum of 60001. to defray the general expence of permanent duty. Aftei some remarks the Resolution was put and agreed to,— The following sums were then voted— 15,8001. for the Volunteers in Ireland. 25,5001. for the Establishment at Chelsea. 8,3001. for Pensions at the Hospital at Kilmainham. 303,2001. for Out- Pensioners at Chelsea. 82,7001. for Out- Pensioners at Kilmainham. The Chancellor of the Exchequer then stated that he was glad to inform the House, that the contributions duo by Fiance to this country were paid very regularly; and lis moved that the Committee do gram the sum of one million to his Majesty, to be given in such manner as bis Majesty should approve, to his Grace the Duke of Wellington and the army under bis command. A sav- ing of 500,0001. had bean effected during the last year, and this year there was no doubt a similar sum would besaved. To enable his Majesty to apply that stun was the object of hismotion.— The Resolution wasagreed to. The Chancellor of the Exchequer moved the sum of 12 millions to pay off some Exchequer Bills undischarged. Mr. Burnett said a few words, which were not dis- tinctly heard in the Gallery. Mr. Ponsonby wished to know what would be, in the estimation of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the amount of the floating debt after this payment ? The Chancellor of ihe Exchequer replied, it would be somewhat more than 50 millions. Parliament had been enabled to save 000,0001. by the reduction of the lute- rest ou Exchequer Bills. Mr. Baring would be glad to know when the Currency of Ireland would be altered ? The Chancellor of the Exchtquer said, that prepara- tions were making for that. After a few words between Mr. Ponsonby and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Resolution was agiced to. The Chancellor of the Exchequer then moved foi 1,000,0001. for paying off some Exchequer Bills.— Agreed to. He further moyed for the sum of 1,500,0001. for pay- ing the interest of Exchequer Bills, and 31,0291. lor paying Annuities on the Loyalty Loan, which were se- verally agreed to. The House then resumed and the Report was ordered to be brought up to- morrow. The Chancellor of the Exchequer moved, that on Wed- nesday the House resolve itself into a Committee of the whole House en the Ways and Means.— Ordered. SEDITIOUS ASSEMBLIES. Oil the motion of the Solicitor- General, the House went again into a Committee, on the Seditious Assem- blies Prevention Bill. Mr. Gurney objected to the Clause enacting ( he pu- nishment of death for the persons who should not dis- perse in an hour after the Act had been read by the Magistrates. The Attorney- General defended the Clause, and con- tended that the Act would be nugatory, unless such severe penalty was denounced to deter offenders. After several Amendments were moved and agreed to, the Report was ordered to be received this day. Adjourned. TUESDAY. KENT PETITION FOR REFORM. Sir Wm. Geary rose to present a Petition from the Freeholders and inhabitants of the County of Kent, praying for Retrenchment aud Reform in Parliament. The Petition was brought up. On the question that it be read, Sir E. Knatchbull s. ud, he could not allow the Petition to be read without observing, that though the Petition spoke the sense of certain inhabitants and freeholders, it was signed by the. Sheriff only. It certainly was adopted by a considerable, majority of a Meeting of some freeholders and inhabitants, but he apprehended that according to the rules of the House it could not be received in any other sense than as the Petition of tiie individual who signed it; and it was for the House to determine whether he was justified in signing it on the behalf and in the name of others. The Speaker said, that the rule was clear that there were but two modes in which Petitions presented to the House should be signed— the first, by the indi- viduals from whom it was presented— the other, when from a corporate body, by the seal of that Corporation annexed. As for the signature of one person in behalf of others, a Petition thus signed could never be consi- dered in any other light than the Petition of him whose name was affixed. Sir W. Geary said, that the manner in which the Pe- tition was signed, arose from a misconception that it would be taken as the Petition of the County if signed by the Sheriff in County Court— it would otherwise have been most numerously signed. Sir E. Knatchbull said, that it certainly spoke the sense of the Meeting at which it was agreed to. Mr. Calcraft said, that it had beenaeonstant practice for Sheriffs to sign Petitions and Addresses on the behalf of County Meeting*; and it was in cousequeuce of the expressed desire nf the Meeting that it was don' in the present instance. He had been in tbe habit < attending County Meetings, but he had never seen a more respectable one than that at which this Petition was agreed to. The requisition had been signed b) many very respectable Gentlemen of the County, and ample notice had been given for those who did not concur in I lie sentiments of tbe requisition, to get toge- therto oppose it. At the Meeting, there was in oppo- sition to the Petition, not only the Honorable Baronet ( Sir E. Knatchbull), a powerful adversary, and a young man of great talents, who had come forward upon that occasion, but a democratical leader; for it was curious how closely the Tories and those called demagogues joined in opposing any temperate and plain statement of grievances. The friends of the Petition had fought the battle, and conquered, as he' thought their cause deserved ; and it the Honourable Baronet ( Sir E. Kuatchbull) was displeased with the result, he might call another Meeting and choose his own time to debate the question again. The Petition was then read. On the motion that it do lie on the table. Sir E. Knatchbull said, his Hon. Friend ( Mr. Cal- craft) had eironeously said that he had opposed the Petition— he had neither spoken for nor against it. He believed that the Petition, if sent round for signatures, would not have got those of all present. He believed even the private opinion of the Sheriff was hostile to He called on his Hon. Friend to retract his assertion It. with respec tto his opposition to the Petition Mr. Calcraft said he did it cheerfully, and was glad to find his Hon. Friend ( Sir E. K.) ln a niikl state of neu- trality, so open to conviction; he hoped soon to hear him in favour oftlie sentiments of the Petition. Though he was on terms of friendship with the Sheriff, he did not know his sentiments with respect to Parliamentary Reform ; but this he knew, that he had signed it most cheerfully on the behalf of the Meeting. Sir E. Knatchbull said the Petition certainly did not speak the sense of the County of Kent. Sir W. Geary was of opinion that the Petition spoke the sense of the County; for it was known that the meeting had been convened after a sufficient notice, and that the Petition had been agreed to by a great majority. He could not, therefore, imagine that the opinion of the County could be collected in a fairer way. A case similar to the present had occurred at the beginning of tbe Session— A Petition bad been pre- sented from the County of Cornwall, signed by the Sheriff, and afterwards another signed by a number of the freeholders. He was glad this, conversation had taken place, that the rule Of the House with regard to Petitions might be known. Mr. Calcraft said, in explanation, that he was con- vinced if the Petition did not speak the sense of the county, they were of that manly character that they would have come forward to oppose it. The Speaker said, that after the conversation which had taken place, the House would see the importance of the rule itself, as well as the importance of having the rule understood. If theparties wishing to petition had known the rule of the House, and signed their names, then the House would have known whose sen- timents the Petition spoke, but now they were entirely in the dark on the subject [ hear.] Sir C. Monck said, that the object of the Hon. Bart. ( Sir E. K.) was evidently to do as much injury as pos- sible to the Petition. That Hon. Bart, had, however, said that the Sheriff, in his private capacity, was hostile to the sentiments of the Petition : if this " were true, it was clear that the Sheriff would not have put his name to such a Petition, but from a persuasion that it spoke the sense of the County Mee'ing. Mr. Lushington said, the Petition undoubtedly spoke the sense of the meeting at Maidstone, but from what he knew of Kent, it did not speak the sense of tile county at large. Mr. Ponsonby said, ho could very well imagine tlia the inhabitants of Kent, who were assiduous ill their attendance at the Treasury, and whom the Hon Sec. was thus most in the habit of seeing, were very probably very hostile to the Petition. He could well imagine that even without the weighty assertion of the Hon. Gent. ( Mr. Lushington.) If the Petition was not to be considered as speaking the sense of the county, were the other acts of that meeting, the Address IO the Prince Regent, and the vote of thanks to Lord Cam den, for relinquishing the over- grown profits of his sinecure? No one would assert that these were not the acts of the county of Kent. Yet tbe Petition was agreed to by the same County Meeting, in the County Court, after due notice to all the freeholders. Sir E. Knatchbull said, that though a public notice had been given of the meeting, the most leading men of the county had not been applied to, and some who had been applied to would not sign It. He himself had not been applied to, which would, he thought have been proper, as he was a Representative of tbe county. The Address to the Prince Regent would have had the universal concurrence of the county, but when in the requisition it was mixed up with reform and retrenchment, & c. ic, many did de- cline having any thing to do with it. Sir If. Geary said, the assertions which bad been put forth would tend to criminate the Sheriff for signing the Petition [ no!] It was never the practice to make private applications to the leading men of tbe county to attend county meetings. The requisition was fully and respectably signed, and the Petition, he was per- suaded, spoke tiie spirit of the county, Mr. Calcraft said, that it never had been the custom to give notice of the meeting to individuals, but through the public papers, unless some of those who signed the requisition requested the attendance of their friends. The Hon. Bart. ( Sir E. K.) seemed dis- pleased that he bad not been applied to. Did he ex- pect that they should wait upon him ? Why should he expect this when it was his duty to wait on them i The Petition was ordered to iie on the table. Gen. ' Thornton postponed his motion ou the subject of Assessed Taxes paid by Absentees, which stood for to- morrow, till the 10th inst. The Saving Bank Bill was, on the motion of Mr. Rose, committed for Monday se nnight. Sir J. Newport said, it was now near three years since he submitted to the House the necessity of insti- tuting some enquiry into the state of the Courts of Justice, and to revise their fees to see that the Public were not taxed at a heavier rate than was fair and rea- sonable. On that occasion he failed. For although he had reason io think the House was with him, his Ma- jesty's Ministers were against him. He would not now enter into a detail of the evils lie iiad to complain of, but content himself with moving two Resolutions ; the first of which was, in substance, that fees in Courts of Law being in fact levied on the suitors, should be fixed as low as possible, and should go to a fund to defray the charges of the Court; and secondly, that a Committee of 21 Members should be appointed to in- quire into the state of the fees in the several Courts of Justice in Great Britain and Ireland. Lord Castlereagh did not consider that the Hon. Gent, had now made out any grounds for the institution of an enquiry which would be, attended with very great ex- pence to the Public; of which expence, perhaps the Hon. Gent, was not aware ^. one of these Committees of Enquiry in Ireland, since the Union, had cost the pub- lic at least <£ 140,000. He the more particularly ob- jected to the institution of any new enquiry, because one was already existing ; and till the result of that en- quiry should be before the House, he thought no other should he instituted ; and especially as he did not con- sider a Committee of the House i f Commons would be the best mode of enquiry. The Noble Lord moved, as an amendment, the previous question, on which the House divided, Ayes, 03.— Noes, 10.— Majority, for the previous question, 47. The Report of the Committee of Supply on the Army Estimates, was brought lip, and Ihe Resolutions wers agreed to. Mr. Calcraft said, if the force continued after Easter at the amount of 110,000 men, lie should think it his duty to move for a reduction of that amount. In answer to a question from Mr. Curwen, with re- spect to a particular item in the Unfunded Debt, of ,£ 5,300,000, Mr. Vansittart stated, that it was ex- plained in the miscellaneous items that that sum was for Bills provided for by Parliament, but not before paid off. The Report of the Seditious Assemblies Bill was brought up. Sir ./. Newport asked whether Ministers intended this Bill to be extended to Ireland. Mr. Vansittart declared that it did not extend to Ireland. Sir J. Newport then said, it ought to he so declared in the Bill, because doubts were entertained on the • abject; and if nothing was done to prei/ ent. the So- cieties, whether Orange, or not, from convulsing the country, he should propose a Clause to that effect oil the third reading. The Mutiny Bill and the. Marine Forces Regulation Bill were read a first time. Mr. Croker stated, that on Friday next his Hon. Friend ( Sir G. Warrender) would move a sum on ac- count of the Navy Estimates for half a year.— Adj. WEDNESDAY. On the motion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the House resolved itself into a Committee of Ways and Means. The Chancellor of the Exchequer, after a few introduc- tory observation?, moved that a sum of .£ 18,000,000. be granted for the service ot the year 1817. The Resolution was, after some observations, agreed to: the House resumed, and the Report was ordered to he received to- morrow. Mr. Lushington obtained leave to bring in a Bill tar regulate the Tax on shop « indows and warehouses. THE SIX HUNDRED PETITIONS. Sir F. Burdett having moved the Order of the day for resuming the adjourned debate on the Petitions which he had presented. The Speaker, with the leave of the House thought it. necessary to state, that lie had caused the several Peti- tions to be assorted, and classed according to theirform and contents.— The total number of the. Petitions was 527. Of these, there was one to which no name at alt was subscribed— there were two to which no name was subscribed on the same sheet on which the Petitions were written. There were 28 in the same language, and copies from the same form, which the House had already rejected— 4G8 were printed Petitions. Of the remaining 28, there were II in the same language with the Petition from Halifax, which the House had i ejected — four were in the terms of another Petition, which the House had rejected this Session, and 13 in various other forms. On these the first question to be pnt, would be as to the Petition to which 110 name was subscribed, and as to it, the question which he had to put to the House was, that the Petition without any name affixed to it should be now read. These Petitions being now taken in consideration, many of which were repelled with indignation, and others ordered to lie on the table. The Mutiny and Marine Mutiny Bills were read u second time, and ordered to be committed to- morrow. The Silk Bounty Bill was read a third time, aud passed ; as was also the Indemnity Bill. The Lords' Amendment to the Treasonable Practices, and Sailors' aud Soldiers' Seduction Bills, were read and agreed to.— The other Orders being disposed of,, the House adjourned. THURSDAY. The Report of the Committee of Ways and Means was brought up, and the Resolu tiou for granting £ 18,000,900 in Exchequer Bills was read and agreed to, and a Bill ordered accordingly. Mr. Lushington moved for leave to bring in a Bill to amend the Assessed Tax Act, and to exempt Ware- houses and Houses used onlv as such from the Window Duty. Sir M. Ridley wished to know whether it was intended ta exemptsheps having Conipting- houses attached to them. Mr. Lushington said, it was intended only to include tiie exemption to Houses used wholly as warehouses.— Leave was given to bring iii a Bill. DISTRESS OP THE MANUFACTURING POOR. Mr. Brougham, after a long speech moved four reso- lutions, in substance stating the general distresses which prevailed, and which demanded the attention of Parli- ment; ti nt tiie difficulties mi * er which the country la. homed had been in* Teased by the system of oar foreign trade; that those distresses had been increased by a system of taxation ruinous and oppressive. Mr. Robinson expressed his regret that the question had not been stated in such manner as to induce him to • ote for it; and therefore he should negative it by moving the Order of the Day, on which, after pro ducing some further discussion, the House divided— For going into the Order of the Day, 118— For the Re- solution, 03 — Majority in favour of Ministers, 55. The House then went into a Committee on the Mu- tiny Bill. Sir S. Romily said, he should on a future day propose a clause for regulating, if not abolishing, the custom of flogging. Lord Palmerstone suggested the propriety of postpon- ing this clause till the next Mutiny Bill should be brought in. Mr. Bennett objected to the clause which prevented soldiers marrying without the consent of their Officers, and gave notice that he should oppose it on Monday. \ The Bill then went through tbe Committee.

The Paris Papers of Monday, received on Thursday morning, contain very satisfactory ac- counts of the convalescence of the Duchess of Berri. The Seine has risen still higher, and a storm of Thunder and snow passed over Paris on Sun- day. On the 4th there was a dreadful tempest at Strasbnrgh ; the lightning was excessive, and torrents of rain fell for several days. The Prussian Contingent of the Army of Oc- cupation which is to be withdrawn,' is to leave France on thelOth of April. On the 3d of March the King of Wirtemberg opened the States and submitted the plan of the } NOW Constitution, consisting of 337 Articles The Moniteur contains several Ordonnances for reducing the military expenditure of France. Friday morning the Paris Papers of Tuesday ' were also received. The Government and the peace of France appear to acquire more stabi- lity daily. The Porte has made a present of a new flotilla to the Dey of Algiers, with warlike stores, <$ rc. Are we to construe this present as a proof of the approbation of the Turkish Government of tlmt conduct of the Dey w hich provoked the signal chastisement he received from us ? CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES. Sitting of March 10— The Order of the Day was to hear the Report of the Commission charg- ed to examine the Project of the Law presented by the Minister of France, relative to the Col- lection of Ihe two first twelfths of the Taxes of 1017. The Commission were unanimously of opinion that it should be adopted. The Chamber immediately agreed to the Report by a majority - of 156 to 1. " Paris, March 11.— The flotilla destined by the Grand Seignior as a present to the Dey of Algiers, and consisting of a frigate, two corvettes, and three transports, laden with naval and war- like stores, cast anchor on the 13th January at Kobatzsb, with a view of soon putting to sea. " The Hotel de Brienne has been sold to Go vernment for 852,333 francs by Marie Letitia Ramolino, widow of Charles Bonaparte. " Madrid, Feb 24.— Some time ago orders were sent to Ceuta, for the persons in exile there to be removed to other places. Among these was Arguelles. The cause of their removal is now known. They had entered into a plot to take Ceuta by surprise j had opened communi- cations with the Moors, who were to second them. A Serjeant of a regiment of infantry discovered the plot, and thereby frustrated it." Thursday a Meeting was held in Palace- yard, Westminster; when a Petition to the Prince Regent was voted, praying for the dismissal of Ministers. Major Cartwright, Mr. P. Walker, Sir F. Burdett, and Lord Cochrane, were the speakers; but nothing having any feature of novelty fell from them, thinly atteuded. The Bill brought into Parliament for facili- tating the progress of suits in Equity before the Courts of Exchequer, authorises the Chief Baron to sit singly for the hearing of suits, at such times as lie shall appoint; or, in case of his absence, for any unavoidable reason, one of the other Barons may be appointed by the Royal Sign Manual to sit for him The Meeting was very Important Intelligence from Manchester, & c. " Manchester, Tuesday, March II.— We find it was among the notifications at the meeting on the 3d instant, near St. Peter's Church, corroborated in the Course of last week, hy the declarations of individuals who have been actively engaged in promoting the late, seditious meetings, that the espousers of their doctrines should collect at the • same place ihe Monday following ( yester- day), and proceed to the Metropolis, at nine o'clock, to present a petition to the Prince Regent, that they might be enabled" lo undeceive him.' Aware of these intentions, and ofthc dangers which an immense influx of strangers irritated by the inflammatory appeals of their factious leaders, ( who, under the pretence of promoting Parlia- mentary Reform, have been for a length of time past agitating tiie minds of the labouring classes of society), portended the conservators of the public tranquillity took every precaution adequate to the occasion. " Yesterday morning, according to the expectations entertained, crowds of people flocked into town from all directions, as early as eight o'clock, and about nine, the instigators appeared on their temporary stage in a cart, and continued to harangue the multitude till their vast increasing numbers suggested the expediency of putting into practice the well- formed arrangements of the civil and military powers. Accordingly, a part of the first Regiment of Dragoons, under Colonel Teesdale, ac- companied hy the Magistrates of the District, appeared amongst them, and with an adroitness and decision almost electrical, surrounded the erection, and imme diately conveyed the entile group upon it to the New Bayley Prison; their attention was next directed to the concourse of auditors, who were forthwith dispersed without the infliction ofany severity. " An arrest had taken place early on Sunday morning, of Johnston and Ogden, who had previously figured at this place, and they were secured in the New Bayley. Others were seized by the soldiers ou their way to de- liver their charge in Salford. The followiug are the names of prisoners:— " Drummond, Bagnley ( the two orators) Handring, Grlmshaw, Lingard, Quiney, Shaw, Wood, Hargraves, Lever, Shawcross, two Williamses, Tucker, Whitworth, Oddy, Bousfield, Key, Lefgar, Blackshaw, Simms, Thomason, Barlow, Cuthbird, Lees, Hudson, and Hig- ginbottom ( the owner of the cart on which the stage was fixed). A considerable number of people set out on their mission to London, taking the route of Stockport, but about forty of them were re- conducted to Manchester, and added lo their other unfortunate companions; others were furnished secure accommodations in Stockport. Most of them were provided with knapsacks, See. con- taining blankets and other articles. Upon the exami- nation of some of these travelling equipages, two unu- sually large knives were discovered. " Johnston, Ogden, & c. will be dispatched, without loss of time, under escort, to the. Secretary of State in London. " We shall desist from entering further at present into the eases of these characters, as they will probably hereafter be the subject of high judicial enquiry. " The military preparations were under the direction of Sir J. Byng, the Commander of the District, who arrived in Manchester on Sunday. A pity of the 54th regiment Of foot were present to render their assistance. " We may fairly presume that at one period there was • n assemblage of at least 30,000 at the Meeting, ant! we"" believe we do not over- rate the arrivals in the course of the day at from 60 to 70,000 individuals. " No particular act of outrage or intemperance has yet reached our ears, and we cannot help feeling highly indebted to the judicious and salutary interposition ot the respective Authorities for the satisfactory result of this day's transactions. " As we are closing this account, we have anthortiy to state, tlnU the apprehensions are nothing short of 200 persons."— Manchester Mercury. EXECUTION OF CASHMAN. About eight o'clock 011 Wednesday morning, Cashman, the unfortunate sailor, who was con- victed of the felony at Mr. Beckwith's, the gun- smith, was executed in front of the shop in Skinner- street, where the crime was committed. At the usual hour this wretched man was brought from his cell, and his irons struck oil in the Press- yard, and at five minutes before eight o'clock he was brought from Newgate in a cart, preceded by the City Marshals on horse- back, the Sheriffs, and the ptocession of Peace- officers, & c. which form the escort on such occasions. He not only seemed to survey the awful scene before him w ith perfect composure, but bis looks betrayed that sort of cheerfulness and levity which is characteristic of the careless air of a sailor. On ascending the scaffold, which he did with a rapid step, he looked around him with a wild stare, and exclaimed—" Three cheers, my boys!"— accompanying the ejacu- lation with a corresponding motion of his arm and body. On the night cap being put over his face, he said., " For GOD'S sake let. me see to the last : I want no cap." In this he was indulged, and the cap was withdrawn. He now turned towards Mr. Beckwith's house in an angry manner, and shaking bis head, said, " I'll be with you there," meaning he would haunt the house after his death. While the rope was fastening he looked about among the immense crowd with a staring gaze as if endeavouring to recognize some old acquaintance, and the ex- pertness of the executioner seemed too tardy for the wretched man's anxiety to suffer his fate, for he turned round, and looking at him roared out ip a loud voice—" Why don't you let go the jib- boom." In alluding to his approaching death, he said, he had often faced the enemy amidst a shower of balls, and with the d*** l before him, without shrinking, and did not now fear to face his God !' — As he passed through the Press- yard, he ex- claimed with an oath, " I wish a forty- four pounder would now come and cut me in two, rather than I should go into the hands of Jack Ketch !" In this melancholy state, and at about five minutes after eight, the wretched man was launched into eternity, and after being sus- pended for an hour, the body was cut down and conveyed in a cart to the Sessions House, where a coffin was prepared by a relative of Cashman's to receive it, and from whence it was removed in the evening by his friends. After about 10 minutes the populace renewed the expressions of disgust' and indignation to wards every person who had taken a part in the dreadful exhibition. Cries of " Murder! Mur- der !" were distinctly heard from innumerable mouths, followed by cries of " Shame ! Shame !" ' Where are the Conspirators ? Why not hang them?'' Ac. Groaus and hisses accompanied these allusions. The mob shortly afterwards quietly dispersed j although apprehensions were entertained that they would proceed to acts of outrage. Friday morning A. Barton and J. Frampton were also executed in front of Newgate, for highway robbery. Both very young, their ages not exceeding 20, but they were most desperate characters. The unhappy culprits behaved with firmness and resignation on the awful occasion. Barton was one of those who was accused of the inhuman murder of a sailor, in Newton's- court, St. Martin's- lane, about a year ago, by cutting and mangling him with a razor. Fraud prevented. TO counteract the many attempts that are daily made to impose 011 the unwary a spurious composition instead of the Genuine Blacking prepared by Day and Martin, they arc induced to adopt a new Label in which their signature and address, 97, HIGH HOLBORN, is placed so conspicuously in the centre of the Label, that they trust an attention to this, and the. difference of the type which is unlike all letter- press, will enable purchasers at once to detect the imposition. The Real Japan BLACKING, made and sold whole, sale by DAY and MARTIN, 97, High Holborn, ami retailed by lite principal Grocers, Druggists, Rook- sellers, Ironmongers, Perfumers, Boot- Makers, & c. iu the United Kingdom, In Bottles at Od, Is. vnd Is. i\ d. each, A copy of the Label will be left with all Venders. TO THE INHABITANTS OF MAIDSTONE. Ladies and Gentlemen, THE uncommon demand for a supply of mv newly- invented JAPAN BLACKING from all most every town in the United Kingdom, and the nu- merous communications I am daily receiving, all bear- ing testimony to its matchless excellency, awakens in ' my mind the most lively emotions of gratitude, and de- mands niy warmest acknowledge', nnts for the interest you have tsikcn in promoting the sale of this useful com- modity, I am well aware that whatever is offered to a discerning Public ought to prove its own excellency, as every flower carries with it its own sweetness; but oft we witness the labours of the inostingcniousand deserv- ing rendered unsuccessful, arising from the difficulty in prevailing 011 others to scrutinize its meirts ; this, how- ever, is not the case with my humble exertions to ren- der myself useful to society ; but from one department of the nation to another has my brilliant composition gained the ascendancy. No- would I wish to disguise the fact, how much I am indebted for this unparalleled distinction to those Ladies and Gentlemen, who, ever ready to encourage merit, have laid such particular injunctions on their servants to purchase no other Blacking but that which bears the impression ef the name of RICHARD TURNER, which highly distin- guished preference I will endeavour to preserve, by a constant and unwearied attention to every future com mand I may be honoured with. I nm, Ladies and Gentlemen, With the most profound respect, Your very obliged humble servant, RICHARD TURNER. No. 114, London- road, Sotithwark. FISHER'S Prepared Stramonium and Oxymel.

Translated from the " Joursl de Debats," French Paper, Paris, 14th, November, 1816. " At the solicitations of a great number of the Cler- I gymen, the . Mayors, the Members of Charitable Esta- i blisliments, and the Ladies uf Religions Institutions, as I well in this city as in different departments, Mr. M il- i liams, Honorary Oculist t" the King, has determined tb establish a depot of his Remedies with Mr. Couture, < Master Chemist and Apothecary, living No. 77, Rue de i Richelieu: Mr. Williams has therefore deposited with him the means of continuing the treatment that has been commenced, and which he could no longer continue himself with regard to the indigent, in the maimer he had done for more than two years: he being called upon to visit another kingdom. The magazine alluded to will . be the only one for the whole of France; but where every person will find the instructions for applying the remedies of the above Oculist, both for the Disorders of the Eye and the Ear. The distinguished Apothecary who is charged with the dish ibution, hath pledged him- self to give all the explanations that may be rousidered requisite, in order to render easy and useful the appli- cation of those remedies, the efficacy of which is now so nniveisally known." " The following is a translation of an ODE, addressed to Mr. Williams, Honorary Oculist to H. M. C. Ma- jesty the King of France, by a Member of the Society, ill the city of Lyons, called the " Friends of the Muses and of the King," at a public dinner given by, that In- stitution to the above Oculist, on the 15th July, 1816 ; the original verses were afterwards copied by themselves into the City Gazette, with a great variety of authenti- cated Cures they had collected together after his de- parture, and which they had forwarded to him at Paris with a Diploma, constituting him a Member of their Society: both of the original Documents are now in oyr possession THE COMPLAINT. " Alas ! bright Sol, thou radiant God of Day, Thy blissful light from me for e'er is fled; Involv'd in midnight darkness, now I stray ; A wretched w anderer through the world I'm led. My talents lost, without the power to please, Not Venus, the Graces, not pleasure, nor ease, In my sad abode ever enter; But folly e'en follows my steps for their sport, And makes me their jest peradventurc. The charms of this world to me now are cross'd, 111 my passage thro' life the Sun's spleudour is lost, And my joy forever is flown : The features ot those w hom my heart once ador'd, Are denied to my Sight— Can it not be restor'd? Ah! no, that for ever is gone! ! For me are no more the rich valleys embellish'd With colours so various all art to defy ; And Flora's rich empire for me has 110 relish, Or landscape, or mountain, or tints of the sky. Apollo was niov'd by my fast- flowing tears, And addressing me thus, he subdued all my fears— " Open thy heart to joy, , " Drive away thy grief; " Have mirth without alloy, " For thou canst have relief, " Let hope beam 011 thy mind, " And future prospects bless j " III Lyons thou slialt find " An English Oculist.

Majesty Lcnis 18th ; Member ofthe Colleges of Physicians of Paris, Marseilles, Cainbray, Thonlouse, Chaalons, Clermont, Military Reductions.— The 100th Regiment has been ordered to this country from New Brunswick, and 011 its arrival is expeeted to be reduced. Orders have been given for the Depot Troops and Companies of the under- mentioned Regi- ments, which have been ordered home from India, being immediately discontinued, viz.— ' 21th Light Dragoons, 35th— , 10th Foot, 80th , — 80th , . This last arrangement alone will be a saving to the Country of £ 8,000. At least with regard to the Reduction of the Military Force, Ministers seem most active in meeting the wishes of the Public. Three thousand of the troops expected from France, are ordered to proceed direct from Calais to Leith, in Scotland. They are after- wards to proceed westward, to the Glasgow district. They will be conveyed to Leith from Calais in the smacks employed in the trade be- tween Leith and London. Alderman Sir Matthew Bloxham is appointed Storekeeper of his Majesty's Stationery Office, vice Border. Within a few weeks large cargoes of corn have arrived in the French ports, principally from the Baltic, but a part from North America. This corn is sent partly to the Army of Occupation, and partly lo Picardy, where the scarcity is the most severe, but above all to Paris, where the Government is collecting large quantities. Lord Coleraine.— Monday Lord Coleraine, better known by the name of Colonel Hanger, charged a hackney- coachman, at the Bow- street Office, with an assault, and with demanding more than his fare. The coachman, 011 being refused his excessive demand, became very in- solent ; and when Lord Coleraine proceeded with reasonable force to turn him out, he seized an oak stick from his Lordship's hands, and struck him several blows about the head and face. He was fined for his extortion, and com- mitted for the assault. Highway Robbery.— Monday night, about a quarter past eleven o'clock, as Mr. Thomas Murray, of Field- lane, Holborn, was returning home from a public- house in Westminster, where a society is held for the laudable purpose of raising a subscription towards building a gallery in St. Mary's Catholic Chapel, Horseferry- road, he was attacked in Gardner's- lane by two fel lows, who had the appearance of dustmen or scavengers, who knocked him down and robbed him of a silver watch, chain, and seals, besides lis. in silver, and then cscaped towards West- minster Abbey.

The House, In a Committee of Supply, voted several stuns for the Naval Service, for the BreakwateratPly mouth,& c.— Sir E. Knatchbull's Game Bill went through a Committee.— The Solicitor General moved the third reading of the Seditious Assembly Bill. Sir M. W. Ridley opposed the Bill, as setting out in its very pre- amble with a libel on the people of England, by declaring that divers assemblies had been held under a pretext of petitioning for reform which had been converted to purposes of sedition, and had produced acts of violence and diaorder. The only disorder attending a meeting for reform was at Spa- fields, and that was put down by the civil power. Ilemoved to postpone tiie third reading for six months. He was followed bv Sir J. C. Hippes- ley, Mr. W. Smith, Mr. C. W. Wynn, Lord W. Rus- sell, Mr. Finlay, Sir S. Romilly, Mr. B. Bathurst, Mr. Ponsonby, Mr. Serjeant Best and Mr. Calcraft, who severally delivered their opinions.-— Mr. P. Moore protested against the Bill on the part of the whole nation. He had lived long enough to see three green bags opened with the same pomp as that recently exhibited; and they had all ended in an abridg- ment of the liberties of the subject. . Mr. Canning was convinced that the Bill would, in no degree, affect the I right of the people to meet and petition for legitimate] purposes. It would interpose a barrier between them and their deluders, and erect a temporary guard between them and their bitterest enemies. Those who had hitherto employed themselves in disseminating poison would now find their purposes defeated, and the people of England, sound at heart, and with all the seeds of virtue and greatness within them, when the disguise was removed, would discover and abhor those who, taking advantage of temporary difficulties and warm feelings, had used every artifice to stir them up to tu- mult and rebellion. Mr. Brougham opposed the measure the great object of which was to excite an alarm that might divert the attention of the pubiic from the ques- tion of reform, place the press under fetters, and relieve Ministers from every effectual opposition to their pro- ceedings. Lord Cochrane re- asserted that two of the persons apprehended at Glasgow, and afterwords dis- charged as innocent, had been put into damp cells, and otherwise ill- treated. Mr. Finlay assured the House, that the statement of the Noble Lord was either totally unfounded, or grossly exaggerated. Mr. Bennet said he had received an account confirming the statement. The motion for the third reading was then carried in the affirmative by 179 to 44. The Bill having been accordingly read the third time, Sir. J. Newport proposed, as a rider, a clause, which was agreed to, for extending the measure to Ireland, with the view of putting down secret societies, and of course Orange clubs. Sir M. W. Ridley moved an amendment to the preamble, the purport of which was that 110 riots had taken place at petitioning meetings, which was negatived without division. Mr. Ponsonby proposed two amendments; one for rendering the presence of two magistrates ne- cessary to break up assemblies; and another, to sub- stitute the subversion of the. constitution for constitu tion and government," which were both negatived with- out a division. The Bill was then passed, aud ordered to the Lords. ——- SATURDAY'S LONDON GAZETTE. BANKRUPTS. J. Clements, Newport, Monmouth, shopkeeper— J. S. Hilling, Norwich, jeweller— J.

To the interesting intelligence from China, given in our last and additional accounts in « tsr page, we are enabled to add some further particulars, from advices transmitted bv an American vessel arrived at Rotterdam front Macao One of these letters puts the ( Its- missal of our Embassy beyond the possibility of doubt, by giving a pretty copious abstract ofthe Edict addressed upon the occasion to the Vice- roy of Canton. This document is dated the 15th day of the 9th Moon" ( the 5th Sept. last), of the 21st year of the Emperor Kia King. It apprizes the Viceroy that the Ambassador from the British Court had arrived at the port of Tien Sing, where himself and his suite were invited to a banquet by the Governor of the port. There they did not observe the usuai ceremonies, nor did they seem grateful for the attention and hospitality with which they were received. At Thom Cheu they promised to observe the ceremonies of bending the knee, and the inclinations of the head to the earth. From thence they passed to Y Juan ( a summer palace of the Emperor's). The Emperor ascended the throne to receive them; but they excused themselves from seeing the Emperor, on the plea of indisposition. In consequence of this event, the Emperor immediately ordered the return of the Embassy to their country. He considered, however, that the Ambassador was to blame for being wanting in respect to him, after the King had sent him so long a distance, and over such extensive seas, to convey to the Emperor his letter, and to offer him his gifts, by which he certainly evinced an intention that this Ambassador should revere the Emperor, and treat him wilh respect. He- thought, therefore, that the presents ought not to be rejected alto- gether, otherwise the Emperor would also be deviating from the fundamental principle of shewing kindness to petty kingdoms. On this consideration the Emperor was pleased to select the least and most trivial of the gifts, which con- sisted of four maps, two pictures, and ninety- five prints. These were received to do the British King a favour and kindness. In return, the Emperor gave to the King one Pai ( 1), and Izcou Chu ( 2), four large purses, and eight small ones. They were intended to shew the King of Eng- land his sense of the fundamental rule " Hon lao Po lai" ( 3). The Ambassadors were very contented and thankful, and also shewed the ap- pearance of repentance and fear. They had since proceeded to ' Thorn Cheu. The Edict then directs the Viceroy of Canton to give them a banquet on their arrival there, and to say to them— " You had little fortune. You arrived at Com Mew ( 4), and could not look in his celestial face. Our great Emperor has compassion onyour King, who has evinced his candour in admiring our good government. Where- fore, the Emperor has agreed to receive the smallest gifts of yonr King, and has rewarded him with precious things of much value. You ought to be thankful forhis celestial goodness, and return with all haste to your country, as your King wishes, and venerate the inten- tions of yonr benefactor. The articles not received shall be embarked with * I1 security and care, without injury or loss." If, after this warning, the Ambassador beg of yon the favour of accepting the presents not re- ceived, only say, ^ We have the express decree of the Emperor, and are not bold enough again to offend his sense of hearing, and with these words reject their supplication— Revere this." It appears that, prior to the attack upon the Alceste by the forts in the Bogue, of which we gave the particulars in our last, Captain Max- well had sustained an attack at the intermediate station of Chun- Pee. The forts there fired over the war- boats upon the Alceste, but the compli ment was returned with such effect that they were speedily reduced to silence. The subse- quent affair with all the forts in the Bogue lasted forty minutes. It was rumoured at Can- ton, that the Chinese Ministers had been dis missed in great disgrace. The reason assigned by some was, their not haviug sooner apprised the Emperor of the reluctance expressed by Lord Amherst to conform to the ceremonies practised by foreigners at the Chinese Court. By others, it was attributed to their not having informed hint of Ihe result of the Nepaulese war until the arrival of Lord Amherst, one great ob- ject of whose mission was supposed to be the removal of any alarm that might have prevailed at the Court of Pekin from the extension of our conquests to the borders of the territories form- erly tributary to the Chinese, and to the sove- reignty of which they still lay claim. ( 1) Pai is a precious stone, of a white colour, in length about a yard and a half, in which there is a flower in the. shape of a human heart.

MONTHLY STOCK MARKET. Maidstone, March 11.- Our Market this day exhi- bited t; be finest shew of Beasts that we have witnessed for some length of time. Mutton was also plentiful and good. The Market was toleiably brisk, and best part of the Stock sold. There were about 240 Beasts, 1,300 Sheep, 18 Lambs, IS Calves, and GO Pigs, which sold as follows:— Beet from 3s. 8d. to 4s. 4d.; Mutton, - Is. 8d. to 5s.; Veal 4s. 8d. to 5s. 4d. ; and Pork, 3s. 8d. to 4s. 4d. per stone. Few narratives will he read with more serious im- pressions than that we have given in our Paper of this day, concerning the execution of Cashman ; nor is it probable that a more striking example was ever exhi bited of total obduracy of heart. But what occasions the most painful feeling on this subject is, that the por. trait we have exhibited is not that of an individual, but of a party; and of a party ready, if opportunity offers, to exhibit the. same disobedience lo the law, and con- tempt for religion. What less could be inferred from the behaviour of a mob, which joined in the impious cries and huzzaing of this wretched man at the moment he was about to be launched into eternity ? Could the preachers of insubordination, who had just been trying tiicir powers in Hampshire, have witnessed this scene, how they must have exulted in the production of so many apt scholars— so many well- prepared agents for any mischief they might insinuate ;— so many who were ready to anticipate the wishes which their cowardly caution forbad them to utter! But the most unpleasant sensation, created by the scene of Wednesday, must be allowed to arise from the conduct of the mob. That so considerable a number of them, should join in the impious indifference and contempt of this man for " death and judgment," is, indeed, a fearful symptom of depravity. Notwith- standing the many and extensive efforts lately made and now making, to give religions instruction to the lower classes, this is a melancholy proof that the enemy of mankind, and his agents, have been at least equally successful in demolishing all moral and religious prin- ciples. This case, therefore, is become extreme, and the remedies to be applied must partake of that cha- racter. What the effect of the new laws on the sub- ject may be, is a matter of speculation ; but if the Crown Lawyers continue their indifference to a pub- lication of impious and immoral papers, and if that day which has hitherto been appropriated for the dissemi- nation of religious instruction, continue to be the day, of all others, in which the greatest mass of impious and seditious libels make their appearance, we may expect in a very short time, that the virtuous part ot the public will find no protection for their persons and property, but in the establishment of laws that have hitherto been deemed inconsistent with the freedom of our Constitution.

The Lent Assizes ofthe county of Essex, finished at a late hour on Saturday last, the calendar having bceii the heaviest ever remembered. There were 115 pri- soners for trial, of whom 68 were found guilty ; of which number 27 received sentence ot death. The Judge, however, reprieved 23, and left Joseph Clark, Aarom Miller, Wm. Giffin, and Wm. Hayden, for execution. The three first were the ringleaders of a desperate gang of house- breakers that had long infested the county ; the house of Joseph Clark was the rendezvous of the gang, from which they sallied forth disguised, their faces blackened, and armed with pistols and bludgeons. Two of Clark's sons were also convicted of burglaries. Ann Champion, for the murder of the illegitimate infant of her sister, whose case, from the peculiarity of its circumstances, lind excited much at- tention, was acquitted. The last case was the only one for murder in the calendar. Bigamy.— At the Essex Assizes Thomas Crane was indicted for feloniously having intermarried at Bury St. Edmund's, in Suffolk, with Ann Copsey; his wife, Elizabeth, to whom he was married at Ashfield, in Suf- folk, being still alive. The case was clearly proved by the testimony of the second wife, and the persons who were present at the first marriage. It wasi^ sp provetl, that the first wife was now alive. The prisoner ( who was an inhabitant of the other side of St. George's Chan- nel) stated in his defence, that he had received a letter from a person, stating his first wife was dead, and be- lieving it to speak the truth, he had taken unto him a second wife. The jury, who paid no respect to such found the prisoner guilty. MARRIED. March 8, at Elham, Mr. Wm. Arnold, to Martha, eldest daughter of Mr. Wm. Bragg, Governor of the Union Workhouse, Elham.

An order has been received at the Custom- house, from Government to admit every descrip- tion of rice, duty free, which has had a great effect on Ihe market. Friday 200 barrels of Carolina rice, brought forward by public sale, went off at 48s. and 48s. Gd. Friday morning, Nichols, the Bow- street con- stable, apprel ended a man in London, who, we understand, is charged with being a great pro- moter aud propagator of what is called the Spen- cean System. He was taken to the Secretary of State's Office, and committed lo prison. An unprecedented outrage was committed in Lincoln late on Tuesday night. As Sir Robett Sheffield, the High Sheriff, was returning home from the Assembly- rooms above- hill to his lodg- ings, he was most grossly assaulted in the street, near the White Hart Inn, by two men, who twice knocked him down, and then dra him across the street. His call for help was fortunately heard at the White Hart, and the two ruffians were secured aud delivered over to the law. They proved to be John Wilkinson and John Warwick, journeymen coopers, of dissolute habits, in that city : and they had been drink jing too freely of ale at the White Hart, through But, if after the expiration of ten months, they , the bounty of the Sheriff!

The Kent Petition for Reform, & c. was presented to the House of Commons on Tuesday by Sir William Geary, and brought on an interesting conversation, as may be seen in our report of thedebates in the 2d page. In consequence of a Requisition to the Mayor ( John lirenchley, Esq.), a meeting was held yesterday at the Town- Hall, for the purposcof proposing a Loyal Address from the Inhabitants, to His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, expressive of abhorrence at the late grossly, infamous, and outrageous attack upon his person in returning from the Parliament House, when the business of the Sleeting being opened by the Mayor, a suitable Address ( for which see Advertise- ment in the first page) was proposed by Dr. Day, and seconded by Mr. Thomas Atkins, who took occasion to observe, that however varied opinions might be upon other subjects, there could be but one principle of feeling as to the brutal assault committed upon His Royal Highness, whilst returning from the exercise of one of the highest purposes connected with the duties of the Sovereign ; and that although there were some persons to be found wicked and base enough to endanger the life ofthe Prince Regent, in the most violent and daring manner, yet he hoped they were but few in number, and that the unanimous voice of the Inhabitants assembled, would speak their detestation of such conduct, and evince a firm determination to support the dignity of our glorious constitution from insult or violation. The Mayor then put the question, which was carried unanimously, and the Address was ordered to be presented by the Members for the town. A vote of thanks to the Mayor beins moved by Mr. Scudamore and seconded by Mr. Carter, was also car- ried unanimously. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Justice Dallas and Mr. Serjeant Bosanquet fin the room of the Lord Chief Bat on), being the Judges for this circuit, were escorted into town in the usual manner, by William Alexander Morland, Esq. the Sheriff for the county, and their Lordships having opened their commission at the Court- Hall, returned to the commodious apartments, lately fitted up in a most respectable style for their reception, by Mr. R. Tassell, grocer, Hiah- street. Their Lordships will attend divine service this morning, and immediately proceed upon the important business of the Assize, which Is expected to occupy the whole week, as the gaol calendar contains l-! 2 prisoners, many ol which are for very serious offences. On Friday last, as Mr. Lawrence, gunsmith, of this town, was rapping a flint, the sparks communicated wiili a quantity of gunpowder, contained in a canister, which stood near him, and caused an alarming explo- sion, which broke 14 or 15 large sash panes in the shop window, and forced them ontwatvls into the street, but providentially Mr. Lawrence himself escaped with only a severe scorching of his face, having instinctively closed his eyes the moment he perceived the flash. One evening last week, a gentleman's servant un- fortunately ran against a small projecting flight of steps ill Week- street, and broke his arm. On Sunday morning ( the 9th inst.) a Charity Sermon for the benefit of the Labouring Poor, was preached at Chatham Church, by the Rev. G. Harker. The col- lection al the doors amounted to £ 38 10s. 3d. exceed- ing any thing of the kind on any former occasion. Ill the evening, the Rev. Mr. Slatterie preached a Sermon for the same purpose, at the Ebenezer Chapel. ,£ 35 were collected on the occasion, a sum which proved that the zealous warmth of the preacher was met by a corresponding feeling of charity on the part of his hearers. Shocking Accident.— On the 91h instant, a child, aged about two years and a half, the daughter of Mr. G. Lott, of Whitstable, was so dreadfully burnt by ils clothes taking tire during the very short absence of ils parent, who had merely gone into the next house, that the poor little innocent died in a very few minutes afterwards.
